Welcome to the Purpose Chasers ® Podcast I’m your host Mark Crandall. In 2015 I left my career as a therapist to use my drug-addicted criminal past coupled with a traumatic childhood to help 1000s of individuals just like you reinvent themselves.

I was tired of dreading my day-to-day life. I was working unfulfilling jobs, wasting time playing video games, binging on tv, just trying to get my mind off of the fact that I had a calling to do more, to be more. For years I wanted to write a book, to become a speaker, and to empower others to achieve their dreams. In 2016 I took a stand. I invite you to do the same.

Purpose Chasers ® it is time to take a stand. As Purpose Chasers ® we refuse to settle for average, we chase our dreams, accomplish our goals and support, encourage and challenge our community to create the lives we want to live.

Why have we Purpose Chasers ® taken this stand? “Because life is too short to not live fulfilled”

I want to thank you for being a part of the Purpose Chasers ® community and invite you to seek the support that allowed me to take my stand towards creating the life of my dreams. I invite you to join our Purpose Chasers ® community on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/thePurposechasers

    Ep. 56: Stop Playing the Victim and Turn The Heat Up

    Ep. 56: Stop Playing the Victim and Turn The Heat Up

    What label are you allowing yourself to be defined by? Is there something from your past that is holding you back from reaching your highest potential? The truth is, we all have instances in our lives that we can allow ourselves to be defined by our circumstances. However, we don’t have to stay in the place of a victim mentality. In fact, we can use our past to rewrite our future. 
     
    This week, I am sharing the importance of understanding the difference between being a victim and playing a victim. Once we recognize that we can learn from our past circumstances by understanding the lessons behind them, we are then able to turn up the heat in our lives. I am also sharing one of my go-to practices that helps me redefine what it is that I am truly wanting to strive after in life and how it has allowed me to let go of my own self-limiting beliefs.



    Topics Discussed:


    Taking actions against limiting beliefs How the victim mentality cycle keeps you pinned to what you believe  Using your past circumstances to utilize your strengths Why our past doesn’t have to define our future success

    Ep. 54: Jon North - The Attitude Nation

    Have you ever had a near-death experience that left you realizing that there’s more to life than just barely getting by? Maybe you’ve been chasing material things that haven’t given you much joy and you want to experience something more. What if you realized that today was the last day of your life, how would you live your life differently?
     
    This week, I am talking with weightlifting champion, founder of The Attitude Nation, and host of the Red Circle podcast, Jon North about what it means to truly lead a life worth living for. After being pronounced dead for 16 minutes, Jon experienced a spiritual encounter with what he believes to be an angel in Heaven. After coming back to life, Jon now recognizes how precious life is and how to become the best husband and father possible. Listen as we dive into what it’s like to trust God in the process and to fully embrace our identity.


    Topics Discussed:


    Why we need to quit putting on a front and admit our mistakes Recognizing the power of faith and our spiritual journey How to live life to the fullest when tomorrow is not promised Why we need to understand our identity and who we are at the core How to embrace the suck and endure the darkness ---

    Ep. 53: Sacrifice is the Path to Success

    Ep. 53: Sacrifice is the Path to Success

    Are you the person that you want to be at the end of 2020? Is the way you are currently living your life going to get you to the place you want to be at the end of the next decade? Are the activities that you are currently involved in setting you up for the version of yourself that you want to be at the end of your life? These are the questions that we all need to ask ourselves when it comes to achieving our version of success. 
     
    This week, I am sharing the sacrifices that I made in the past to ensure that I am currently living up to my greatest potential. When we truly sit with the life that we want for ourselves and honestly look at the way we are living our lives, often times we find that we aren’t where we need to be. In order to find our own path to success, we must first lay down the things that are holding us back. 
     
    Topics Discussed:
    What I gave up in order to live my life to the fullest Why we need to evaluate our current lifestyle choices How to change your daily habits to set yourself up for success Understanding the idea that sacrifice is how we reach our full potential ---

    Ep. 52: Dennis Perrin - The Perrin Method

    Ep. 52: Dennis Perrin - The Perrin Method

    Do you struggle with the belief in yourself to grow into the person you want to become? What does the best version of yourself look like? You have major dreams and goals, but what’s holding you back? Odds are, you are allowing self-limiting beliefs to hold you back from truly stepping into you were called to be. But what if we could harness the power to change our own reality?
     
    This week, I am talking with Dennis Perrin, painter, and founder of The Perrin Method™. As we discuss Dennis’ love for painting and art, we begin to unfold the idea of energy being all around us. Dennis tells us that we are all made of energy and that we have the power to create our own reality. You have the power already within you, you just need to have the belief in yourself to get there. 
     
    Topics Discussed:


    How everything in life is a form of energy Understanding the power of energy and how to create our reality How self-limiting beliefs inhibit growth in our minds and in our lives Learning the power of choice and how we grow from our circumstances How self-limiting beliefs dampen our potential for growth ---

    Ep. 51: How to Turn a NO into a Yes

    Ep. 51: How to Turn a NO into a Yes

    Have you ever wondered how to turn a NO into a YES? Maybe you are wanting to land a spot as a guest speaker at a huge event but the opportunity hasn’t yet presented itself. Or maybe you are trying to sell your product to a major company, but you haven't yet had a breakthrough. Regardless of how many times you’ve heard the word “no”, what if there was a way to redefine the meaning? 
     
    This week, I am sharing my strategy on how to turn a no into a yes with one simple mindset shift. When we begin to provide value to other people outside of our own community, we are then able to cultivate even stronger relationships. In fact, once we actively show up for others, “no” doesn’t get the final say. If you’ve ever been told “no” after chasing your dreams, this episode is for you. 
     
    Topics Discussed:
    Why we need to shift our mindset from a “no” to a “not now” How to strategize a plan on how to show up in someone else’s world Why adding value to other communities is beneficial for everyone ---
