We each have an innate need, a longing, to be significant, to make a contribution, to do something noble and purposeful. We often, however, doubt that these things are within our reach.
So says the man most know as the #1 Leadership Expert in the world, and author Intentional Living: Choosing a Life That Matters, John Maxwell.
John says that making an impact on the world doesn’t require you to be a certain age, have a lot of money, fame, or a big idea. In fact, the key to choosing a life that matters comes down to one word. Intentionality.
To join my conversation with John, simply hit the play button below. I know you’re going to get a lot out of it.
In today’s episode, John and I discuss:
- The difference between success and what it truly means to live a life of significance
- Some of the benefits that come your way when you choose to live intentionally
- The importance of understanding your “why” and how it helps you find your “way”
- And much more!
