Welcome to the Purpose Chasers ® Podcast I’m your host Mark Crandall. In 2015 I dreaded most of 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. 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 ---

    Ep. 50: Justin Schenck - Growth Now Movement

    Ep. 50: Justin Schenck - Growth Now Movement

    When was the last time you sucked at something new? Maybe you have dreams of becoming a best selling author one day but you’re afraid of failing so you don’t even try. Maybe you want to sell out an arena for a public speaking event but you let your nerves take over. The truth is, when we allow our fear to overcome our purpose, we cheat ourselves out of stepping into what we were called to do. But what if we shifted the way we look at our failure as a learning curve in the right direction?
     
    This week, I am talking with the founder of Growth Now, LLC and host of Growth Now Movement, Justin Schenck, as we dive into what it means to fully step into your purpose. Justin shares how his childhood upbringing set the stage for taking action and how he shares with others how to utilize their 1% each day. We discuss how our failures ultimately lead to our success and how to tune into our inner callings. Justin challenges us this week to suck at something new in order to gain confidence in ourselves to keep moving forward. 



    Topics Discussed:


    Why every experience is a lesson to be learned How we can learn from our failures Why it’s selfish when you don't step into your purpose How to step into your calling by sucking at first Why you need to be working a little more towards your dream every single day How to shut out the noise and start moving forward ---

    Ep. 48: Laura Sandefer - Going Against the Grain (Acton Academy)

    Ep. 48: Laura Sandefer - Going Against the Grain (Acton Academy)

    Ever wondered how we can truly impact our future generation? It’s not by answering every question for them or doing every hard task for them, it’s by allowing them to think deeply and think freely. It’s when we allow children to discover their own identity do we instill purpose into their lives. When children grow up with a hero mentality instead of a victim mentality, children are far more equipped of creating positive change out in the world. 
    This week, I am talking with the co-founder of Acton Academy, Laura Sandefer, as we dive into what it means to disrupt the traditional model of school. As we dive into why the traditional system is failing our future leaders, we dig deeper into how we can raise leaders. Life isn’t always easy but when we allow children to discover themselves through the process, we create room for innovation and growth to its fullest capacity. 
    Topics Discussed:
    Why the traditional system of education is failing our future leaders What happens when we shift from a victim mentality to a hero mentality Why you should be teaching children how to think for themselves How to discover your true self through trials and obstacles ---

    Ep. 47 - Be a Small Coffee Bean

    Ep. 47 - Be a Small Coffee Bean

    Did you know that a small coffee bean has the best taste because it has to withstand the most pressure? The smaller the coffee bean, the more body, and flavor it has due to the maturation process. The more struggle a small coffee bean has, the more potential it has in becoming the best tasting cup of coffee. You may be wondering how this applies to our personal struggles and how we can overcome them.
    This week, I am sharing an experience I had at a local coffee shop where I discovered the importance of a small coffee bean. As opposed to a bigger coffee bean that doesn’t have to undergo a major maturation process, the smaller coffee bean has more room for growth. When it comes to our hardships, we can apply this analogy to overcome any obstacle before us to become the best version of ourselves.
    Topics Discussed:
    Understanding the benefit of hardship Why small beans make the most impactful cup off coffee How a simple coffee analogy changed my outlook on life Why hardships and struggles strengthen our character ---
