Many of the members of our Living Your ONE Thing community have asked the same question: How do I discover my purpose?

So many people asked us that we decided to sit down with Brian Schoenbaum, Founder & CEO of Vuka Collective, to create an exclusive training video for the ONE thing community. We talked to Brian because he operates on another level and a single purpose drives everything he does: helping people wake up in their personal and professional lives.  

We're sharing the audio from that training here because we want you to understand what we're doing for members of our community and consider if it is a good fit for you. If it is, you can go to the1thing.com/membership and try your first week for only $1.

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Jay Papasan once said, "The path to discovering your purpose begins with getting on the path."

Finding your purpose is not a result of following certain steps in order. It is about pausing and finding the space to ask questions: When I walk into a room, what is the positive energy that other people experience? What is my unique genius in the world? How can I be bold?

If you want to enlist support and get more training like this, you can join the Living Your ONE Thing community by going to the1thing.com/membership and signing up for a $1 trial.

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [11:15] Why going on a journey to discover your purpose is so important (and what the payoff is).
  • [19:40] How you can begin to take action on discovering your purpose.
  • [23:55] How to reveal (and leverage) your unique genius.

Do you believe that thinking big and acting small, every day, will create extraordinary results?

We've found that many people who try to live The ONE Thing don't trust The Domino Effect. We can cast a big vision for our life, but we often struggle to take daily action.

This episode is a case study examining how, over four years, someone like you identified a specific daily action that made everything else easier or unnecessary, started living a big life, and toppled some huge dominoes.

 

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

Trust in the power of The Domino Effect. What's the ONE thing you can do that will make everything else easier or unnecessary? When you look at all of the areas of your life, what's the ONE area you need to focus on first?

Apply the focusing question until you identify a specific, measurable action that will make everything else easier or unnecessary – for John, it was as simple as setting a recurring alarm clock.

If you'd like us to be your accountability partner in getting results and your mentor in living your ONE thing, then text the word “FOUNDER” to the number 33444 or go to the1thing.com/membership.

 

In this episode you will learn...

  • [4:40] What most people struggle with when they start trying to live The ONE Thing.
  • [10:50] The ONE thing to take away from the book that will help you knock over your lead domino.
  • [13:20] How you can leverage simplicity to grow your business.
  • [18:05] How the 5th productivity thief steals your time.
  • [26:25] How systematizing your ideal morning will help you execute at a higher level.
  • [30:35] How simplifying your lead Domino makes it easier to knock over.
  • [33:05] The first step you should take towards living your ONE thing.
