Why Am I Here? - Discover Your Personal Mission With David Anderson (AoL 092)

June 15, 2017

Full Show notes:

Success looks different to different people. You might not know that if your career only involved formal education and getting a job upon graduation. In fact, if you've gone that traditional route, you might believe that those who have the most money or the most fame might be considered the most successful. I believe that this model simply doesn't fit in today's new world. Sure, I might say that a majority of people still believe that to be considered successful, it just happens to you - but I and many other creators would say that success comes with achieving what you set out to do - whatever that might look like. Today's guest, David Anderson, is the co-author of the book The Delusion of Passion: Why Millennials Struggle with Success. This book might sound familiar because Laila and I had the opportunity to speak with Mark Nathan about book back in session 23. It was also the book that "I helped re-publish" last year. For me, a lot of things have changed since then - including learning how to really launch books and courses - but one thing stayed constant: I still hadn't met the "other" co-author of the book. Then I found out that he did a TEDx talk. As I watched his presentation and got the chance to know jim, I realized why Mark had chosen him to help him write the book. He really is an impressive guy. He's seems to have accomplished everything that he's wanted to do - and through his own experiences, he really has a lot to teach others. In this chat with David, Albert and I find out more about his mindset he used to land a job at the White House, how the entire process of writing the book with Mark went, how he got into international trading, and much more. We even ask him questions you guys submitted about finding one's own mission. If you're a fan of the Delusion of Passion, or simply want to get to hear more about what it takes to really achieve your dreams - this session is for you. Thanks for listening, and enjoy the show!
