Finding the Purpose in Your Pain with Dov Baron - EP 64

Many men mistake passion for purpose. But Dov Baron argues that passion is about what you get, while purpose is about what you give. In fact, he believes that your purpose exists in your pain—in healing the people suffering from the very thing you need to heal in yourself.

Dov is an international speaker with 30-plus years of experience presenting at the World Business Conference, the State Department and The United Nations, among many other venues. A leading authority on authentic leadership, he is one of Inc. magazine’s Top 100 Leadership Speakers to hire. Dov is also the founder of Full Monty Leadership and The Authentic Speaker Academy for Leadership and host of Dov Baron’s Leadership and Loyalty Show and Pursuing Deep Greatness with Dov Baron on ROKU TV.

Today, Dov joins Emerald to share the experiences that helped him define his own purpose and explain how to cultivate courage by way of a purpose greater than you. He describes how he uses his purpose as a gauge for making decisions about what opportunities to pursue. Dov also addresses the significance of packaging your offering in the familiar and the reason why you can’t shame people into raising their hand for your service. Listen in to understand Dov’s fake-it-until-you-feel-it approach to celebrating success and learn how to uncover your purpose by examining your pain.
