Welcome to Personal Legend, a podcast about living purposefully through my eyes and the stories of others. This show will dive into the journey in starting, pursuing and committing to a new life – one that is more purposeful, spiritual, genuine, and filled with passion.

    S1:E11 | Peace Out

    S1:E11 | Peace Out

    “We all have two lives, and the second begins when we realize we have only one.”
    This episode marks the end of this podcast series, so I want to use this episode as a way to reflect, celebrate and sow the seeds for my future. Today, I am talking about death, life and peace.
    Although I still struggle with death now, I am starting to see the beauty in it. I am starting to see that death ironically breeds life. There is this natural balance in play.
    Even though I have struggles with moving on from this podcast series, I am making my peace with it. What’s helped with this transition is shifting my focus from what’s dying to what’s living.
    As a matter of fact, I even use death as a way to live more fully. In an odd way, death is simplifying life for me and teaching me how to live – to live in a way as if I only have one life.
    As I reflect on my past, appreciate the present and plan for my future, I found that death is what inspired the life I have lived this past year, the life I am living now and the life I plan to live in the future.
    So even as I say peace out to this podcast series, I am also genuinely excited for my future and what’s ahead.

    S1:E10 | Dreaming Big

    S1:E10 | Dreaming Big

    “I'm not saying I'm gonna change the world, but I guarantee that I will spark the brain that will change the world.” – Tupac Shakur, American rapper
    Dreams beget other dreams, not just for yourself personally but for other people as well.
    When you identify who you truly are, embrace yourself and chase after your dreams, you naturally inspire other people through your actions. So, I encourage that if you have a dream, do it not only for yourself but also for the people who look up to you.
    I am not here to tell you that dreams are all sunshine and rainbows either. Chasing your dreams is f*****g hard. In the pursuit of your dreams, you will face some of the greatest challenges of your life.
    There may even be times when you may even question whether or not to keep chasing after it, but I urge you in those moments to keep believing, fighting and manifesting.
    You never know where that one extra push will take you and how it will inspire others. By keeping your dreams alive, you naturally keep the dreams of others alive as well.
    This is why I want to share my dreams with you, in hopes to inspire yours.

    S1:E9 | Purpose

    S1:E9 | Purpose

    “What the universe will manifest when you are in alignment with it is a lot more interesting than what you try to manifest.” – Adyashanti, American teacher
    Living with purpose is a lifestyle.
    Every day you are presented with the opportunity to align yourself with your greater purpose in life, but it is up to you to decide whether to accept that calling or not.
    I am going to share stories from my life to give you a better sense of how small decisions can potentially lead you to your greater purpose.
    Hopefully my stories can inspire you to live more purposefully.

    S1:E8 | Conquering Fear

    “He who says he can and he who says he can’t are both usually right.” – Confucius, Chinese philosopher
    How do you conquer the fears that are keeping you from becoming the best version of yourself and pursuing your purpose?
    To answer this question, I am going to dive deeper into a couple of my biggest fears and how I am conquering them.
    Compassion and new experiences are the two main tools that I have used to dissolve my fears of failing and never living.

    S1:E7 | Becoming

    S1:E7 | Becoming

    “To study the self is to forget the self. To forget the self is to be enlightened by all things.” – Dōgen, Japanese Buddhist philosopher
    Today, I am sharing how the art of surrendering and letting go empowered me to become the best version of myself. By pursuing the journey of building my podcast and business, I knew I would be entering the most challenging time of my life. At times, I even felt like I was constantly at war with myself.
    In order to liberate myself from all my inner demons and be at peace, I needed to surrender and let go. In this episode, I will break down how I used the art of surrendering and letting go to experience true freedom, executional prowess and unified community. I hope that you gain a better sense of how to surrender and let go in your life to become the best version of yourself.

    S1:E6 | The Second Leap of Faith

    S1:E6 | The Second Leap of Faith

    “When you are in alignment with the desires of your heart, things have a way of working out.” – Iyanla Vanzant, American inspirational speaker
    Today, I am sharing how I made the decision to effectively leave corporate and focus on pursuing my passions. During this process, I realized there are two parts to making any great decision: one is the decision itself and the other is the visceral reaction you have in the decision. In order to make the best decision that feels right to you, you must achieve mental, emotional and spiritual alignment first.
    This three-pronged approach was instrumental in my decision to take my Second Leap of Faith and I will breakdown every part of it with my personal experiences. By the end of the episode, I hope that you gain a better sense of how to use the mental, emotional and spiritual decision-making framework and apply it in your life.

Candid, thoughtful, induces reflection

It’s really interesting to hear someone share their journey, many of the struggles Sean faced I share as well, and am working through

Swagger lite ,

Something to get you on track

As a recent grad, I found Sean’s podcast to be extremely relatable. I’ve been having doubts and questions about what I want to do with the rest of my career and what path I want to take. After listening to the first few episodes, I feel like I have a much clearer answer to those questions and am super excited to stick with it! The podcast goes deep into Sean’s personal story and his perspective on finding fulfillment in your life. Overall it’s very inspirational and can really help you make similar decisions in your own life!
