Master the Key: How to Free Your Potential with Mike Flynn


Everyone is talking about finding your “why” or your purpose in life. The idea is that once you know your why, everything else falls into place. But what if you don’t know your why or how to find it? What do you do when you realize you are trapped in a story that you would have never written for yourself? How do you become who you were created to be?

Today we have Mike Flynn back on the show. He is the host of the Impact Entrepreneur podcast and has just released his new book, Master the Key: A Story to Free Your Potential, Find Meaning and Live Life on Purpose.

Mike is going to teach us the 4 elements of ownership, why me must learn to sit in silence with ourselves, and how to find our why. He also reveals the most important key to stepping into our destiny—to believe we are worthy of it.

 

Mike Flynn

Mike Flynn has been advising individuals, as well as executives of companies large and small since 2005. And beginning in 2009, he felt called to do something more, something even greater. Mike commenced that journey in 2015 when he launched a podcast called The Impact Entrepreneur Show. Since then, he has had nearly 200 one-on-one conversations with some of the worlds most elite athletes, thinkers and entrepreneurs in an effort to discover how they are using their personal stories to have a game changing impact in the lives of others.

Master the Key

Master the Key is unlike any personal development book you’ve ever read. Mike illustrates the human quest to find meaning in life through a fictional story that leads readers to the truth.

His main character, Steve, suffers a financial downfall that leads him to a personal crisis. Through a series of conversations with a few wise people, he learns why his life is all wrong.

These factors have prevented him from a meaningful life:

  • Unconsciously allowing a circumstance or someone else’s story direct one’s self-narrative
  • Chaining one’s gifts to the pursuit of status and achievement
  • Allowing a comfort or fear to replace action
  • Misunderstanding the power of community

What You’ll Learn

  • How Mike Flynn’s fictional story helps people tap into and free their potential in a way they never expected or experienced before
  • Why simply knowing our “why” is not enough for us to be successful when pursuing our purpose in life

  • How to overcome the belief that you are not good enough

  • Developing time tolerance
  • The number one thing a man wants from his spouse—her belief in him
  • How our gifts are often chained to the pursuit of status and achievement

  • The first step to Mastering the Key
  • How to own your story
  • How to own your gifts
  • The transformation that occurs when you shed others’ expectations
  • Unchaining your gifts so that you are free to rebuild yourself in your own way
  • When you’re not being intentional about your life, you use your gifts for the wrong purpose. That is why it doesn’t feel fulfilling.
  • The willingness to practice and hone
  • Owning action and owning your community
  • How we set ourselves up for compounding failure when we don’t know our worth

find your why

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

finding life's purpose

Why Finding Your Life’s Purpose Won’t Get You Very Far

Everyone on the internet seems to be talking about finding your life’s purpose, or finding your why. Your why is supposed to be your moral compass. It keeps you motivated and on track, but today we’re going to totally deconstruct that idea.

I have a clip from a guest speaker we had in our Dad Edge Alliance, Thom Shea. He’s a retired navy SEAL instructor and author of the book Unbreakable: A Navy SEAL’s Way of Life. Tom gives us examples of why finding your life’s purpose won’t get you very far and what you need to work on instead.

Stop and really listen to this one. Replay it. Share it, because it’s a game-changer!
