If there is one word to describe Bob Goff it is PASSIONATE. Bob has a fire in him that is exciting and inviting and sparks joy in anyone around him.
He’s the kind of man who makes you smile and feel pumped up for life – YOUR life! I’m thrilled to introduce you to Bob Goff, a guest in the Live Your Passion (what else?) course in my Unstoppable Life program.
Bob describes himself as a “recovering lawyer” because after 25 years practicing law he gave up his law firm to pursue writing and speaking full time. “Bob has inspired millions to dream big and make life more awesome. He is driven by a desire to help others unlock their potential to love and be loved greater.” Like me, Bob has a passion for being present and being available to those around you.
Bob has written three books, “Love Does”, “Everybody, Always” and “Dream Big” (which just came out in July). Go to https://bobgoff.com/ to learn more about all he is up to. “Bob Goff is on a mission to shake people into the version of their lives they dreamt about before someone told them it was impossible or incorrect. He wants people to reconnect with the seat of their passion and their person. He wants them to dream big.”
“Who are you created to be? Don’t try to live someone else’s life.” – Bob Goff
My energized conversation was like one big pep talk – the kind that has you smiling, laughing and cheering – and also equips you with practical tips and tools for Living YOUR Passion.
I want to share a few highlights of our conversation with you today.
Connect your passion to a deeper purpose. We talked about how the true joy in discovering and living your passion is when your passions are rooted to meaningful purpose. Passion without purpose will be lacking. The word purpose doesn’t need to intimidate – loving others well is the most purposeful thing you can do!
Be there for people – it’s the highest expression of love there is. Bob encourages us to start small – love your neighbor – take the things that bring you joy and turn them into expressions of love for those around you. If you don’t know where to start you can begin by simply being curious about other people. Ask questions. Listen. No need to fix, just be present for others.
Surround yourself with people who are life-giving. Bob notes that many people are insecure and cynical, and we can fight cynicism by caring for others genuinely. I think it is SO important to surround ourselves with people who call us up and don’t bring us down. We will live in our passion and our purpose more easily when we have people in our life to support and encourage us.
“Surround yourself with people who remind you of who you are.”
– Bob Goff
