The Power Of Purpose


From a confused college dropout to the youngest motivational author with the world’s largest publishing house.

Sounds like the script of a Hollywood movie, right? But at the ripe old age of 23, Jake Ducey has actually made it happen, and has achieved a whole bunch of other crazy-impressive things too — including publishing two books, giving a massively popular TEDx Talk, and hitting Amazon’s bestseller list.

Jake and I have been friends for a few years now. He is the real deal! Authentic, inspiring and here to be of service. For someone so young, he is incredibly wise and brimful of passion and purpose.

I can’t wait for you to ‘meet’ him.

In this interview with Jake Ducey, author of ‘The Purpose Principles’, you will learn...

  • How to move through fear and draw more meaning into your life.
  • The rule of 5, and how it can help you stay on purpose and achieve your dreams.
  • How to improve your productivity with the 10-minute rule.
  • Why he wrote his bestselling book, 'The Purpose Principles'.
  • How he self-published his way to the biggest publishing house in the world.
  • The importance of writing down your goals (I L.O.V.E. what he has to say about this!).
  • How to redefine success on your terms.
  • The importance of having vision, passion and a clearly defined 'why'.
  • Jake's morning routine and how it helps set him up for a successful day.
  • Why he wrote a will at age 23.
  • Plus a whole bunch of other insights and inspirational tips.

My favourite quote from this interview is this:

The point of a goal isn’t what you get, the point of a goal is who you become.

Amazing, right?!

Now I want to challenge you to write down your chief aim in life and share it with me in the comments below. As we discuss in the video, publicly declaring your goals is incredibly potent, so be brave and share yours below.

Thank you so much for being here and for wanting to be the best version of yourself. I honor and respect you.
