092: Zach Mercurio: Finding and Living Your Purpose

Zach Mercurio returns to talk about finding and living from purpose. This is an important topic that clearly resonates as his previous episode (#030) is the fifth most downloaded episode of Imperfect Action. This time, we discuss:

*The importance of focusing on contribution over results.

*The correlation between resilience and purpose.

*Developing the skills behind being purposeful.

*Questions to ask yourself each day to discover your purpose.

This summary doesn’t do Zach’s thoughts and insights justice. If you are interested in discovering and activating your purpose, give this episode a listen and share it with others.

It’s time to play bigger, do better, and move the world. Let’s get started!

I tried NutriFitt’s whey protein supplement after meeting the founder and hearing his journey and commitment to quality. I like to support up and coming businesses so I gave it a try and was amazed. It mixes immediately and the chocolate flavor actually tastes like chocolate, not like some chemical engineering committee’s overdone attempt. It has no artificial sweeteners, colors, or preservatives. Plus, it includes probiotics and is easy on the stomach.

The true taste test? My teenage daughter even likes it.

There are a lot of supplement brands on the market and NutriFitt is my favorite.

(My personal favorite: Double chocolate whey protein.)
