Jordan Raynor: Master of One
Have you ever wondered, “How do I find my purpose? How do I narrow down the things I’m good at and find the one thing that’s my true gift?” At Redefining Wealth, we’re all about chasing purpose, not money. In fact it’s our tagline.
But struggling to find your purpose is indeed a major problem for most people, and when you don’t know what your purpose is, you end up going in a bunch of different directions and never fully committing to any of them.
In today’s episode, I invited Jordan Raynor, author of Master of One, to share his story and what he’s learned about the process of narrowing down multiple passions to focus on true mastery and how excellence comes from that initial step of finding and cultivating your purpose.
As we dive in, Jordan talks about how he was always the “Jack of all trades, and master of none,” and how he had to shift his thinking so he didn’t end up living in mediocrity – in the “master of none” space. Join us as we discuss how to find your purpose, how to pivot your purpose as needed and how to embrace excellence and mastery in the thing that you’ve chosen.
