Get Lit: Forget the Pressure to Find Your Why with Dominick Quartuccio

Today, there is so much pressure to find our why, to have a clear purpose in life. Some people seem to have it all figured out. We see them on social media living their dreams. Others think they know what they were meant to be, only to find out they’re unfulfilled. Those of us who haven’t defined a clear purpose yet seem to be looked down upon (or maybe we just feel that way). Today’s guest tells us why you need to forget the pressure to find your why and how to let it reveal itself to you.

Dominick Quartuccio, bestselling author of Design Your Future: 3 Simple Steps to Stop Drifting and Take Command of Your Life, is back on The Dad Edge. He says that in looking too hard for our purpose in life, it eludes us. Most people don’t know what their destiny is, and that’s okay. He teaches us how to analyze ourselves to become aware of what lights us up, and how to follow that passion to create a life that excites us. We also go over exactly how to frame conversations about sex with our spouses and how to avoid drift by rewriting our narrative about ourselves.

This show is packed with loads of advice. Are you ready to get lit?

'What you need to focus instead of purpose (which is such a monumental task) is to start to build this acumen around what lights you up. It will give you clues to what that purpose is.'—Dominick Quartuccio #purpose #yourwhy #goals… Click To Tweet

 

 

Dominick Quartuccio

Dominick Quartuccio’s passion is helping people design a future they can’t wait to live in. He once had it all—a so-called successful life and lucrative 15-year career in financial services, running sales teams in Fortune 100 companies. He led “a good life.” The result? He was bored, restless and uninspired. So he left the corporate world and became a human guinea pig, subjecting himself to experiments and experiences that challenged him to assess his long-held beliefs and stories. Gradually, his behavior changed, and his life changed—for the better. Dominick is now a mentor, speaker, trainer and author dedicated to supporting others to be better versions of themselves. He helps successful, stressed and incredibly busy professionals take command of their habits – time, energy, focus and execution—so they can raise their performance in business and all aspects of their day-to-day lives. His purpose now to help people design lives they can’t wait to step into.

Who do you believe yourself to be, and are you interested in authoring a new narrative?—Dominick Quartuccio #selfhelp #personaldevelopment #personalgrowth #men #manhood Click To Tweet

'The only time that couples are having conversations around sex and their sex life is when something is going wrong. It's brought up from a place of dissatisfaction and ambushes the other partner.'—Dominick Quartuccio #sex #marriage… Click To Tweet

Benefits of Practicing Gratitude

The Life-Changing Benefits of Practicing Gratitude


We all go through ups and downs, and it’s easy to focus on whatever is going wrong in our lives, but being stressed and worried all the time works against us. A negative mindset literally makes us dumber! But we can shift our attitude by appreciating what we do have going for us.

Today we have on new Dad Edge Alliance member, Dwayne. He came into the group at an all-time low. His marriage was in trouble, he was in debt, and he was depressed. As he began to target all aspects of his life in the alliance, he also adopted the habit of looking at all that was going right.

Within a few months, Dwayne made incredible progress. His marriage is in a good place, he paid off 6K in debt, and is smiling again. Discover the other life-changing benefits of practicing gratitude in this short episode!

Dad Edge Alliance Q&A: Coming to Terms with Your Own Bulls*t with Gary John Bishop

Dad Edge Alliance Q&A: Coming to Terms with Your Own Bullsh*t with Gary John Bishop


How come we’re not happy when we get what we want? So many of us believe that if we just made more money, if we got that promotion we wanted, or if we lost that last ten pounds we’d be happy. Then sometimes we finally achieve our goals and realize we’re still unfulfilled. This is because we bring ‘us.’ We always have ourselves and our limited beliefs.

Today we have a live Dad Edge Alliance Q&A session with Gary John Bishop. His book How to Unf*ck Yourself just made the NY Times bestseller list. He has been on our show twice before and was a speaker at our Dad Edge Summit.

This episode is in-your-face and explicit. Some of it you may not like hearing, but Gary John Bishop will tell you (in his Shrek-like Scottish accent) how to come to terms with your own bullsh*t so that you can be relentless in executing your goals while also finding the joy in where you are, here and now.

'It’s not about getting there, it’s about loving working it out.' – @GaryJohnBishop #personalgrowth #selfdevelopment #motivation #lifelessons #wisdom Click To Tweet

'If you don’t find yourself on the doorstep of your own bullsh*t, you’re doing it wrong.' – @GaryJohnBishop #selfdiscovery #personalgrowth #men #manhood Click To Tweet

What You’ll Learn

  • His counterintuitive approach to being a human being
  • Why your thoughts are a crappy guide
  • The sanctity of your word: why what you say is so important
  • How your success in life is exclusively tied to you keeping your promises to yourself
  • How to speak, be, and act to become a force of nature
  • What it means when you have crazy people in your life
  • Why a lot of personal growth doesn’t work
  • Why transformation is not possible until you come to terms with your own bullshit (not your wife, your job, or your life).
  • Why you need to be the center of your universe
  • What a mid-life crisis really is midlife
  • Why you should question everything you calmly accept
  • How labeling things perpetuates the battle
  • The fallacy of common sense
  • How to manage your family when you are growing and evolving as a person
  • How to create framework for your kids to question everything and find themselves
  • Why you have to find the joy in your life in where you are instead of where you’re going
  • How to give yourself a break when you screw up
'It’s not the pretending that screws you over as a human being. It’s the pretending that you’re not pretending...' – @GaryJohnBishop #humanity #happiness #authenticity #motivation #wisdom Click To Tweet
