Are you struggling to find your life’s purpose? We can get stuck looking for it in our work, our jobs, or other people, only to come up empty-handed. If you’re frustrated that you don’t seem to be doing as well as your peers (...or complete strangers on the internet). Know that you’re not alone and that there is a way out. 


In the latest episode of The Darin Olien Show, I sit down with Dr. Michael Gervais, a high-performance psychologist, author of “The First Rule of Mastery: Stop Worrying About What People Think of You," and world-renowned expert on the relationship between high performance and the mind. Together, we unravel the complexities around finding and honoring your life’s purpose. We explore the tangled web between personal battles, the pursuit of genuine self-expression, and finding freedom in the present moment. 


In this episode, we dive into…
