Getting Unstuck: The Impact-Maker Who Stepped Out of the Cold (Literally) and into a Life of Curiosity – a Transformation Story with Jordan Gross

Early in life, I was an insider trying to standout. I was on paper set up to follow the traditional path of success. I found myself following what other people wanted me to. And I just bought into it.

We all have a “river” that runs through our veins – a theme that punctuates our life. Sometimes that theme is muted, and some times it’s loud. And sometimes it’s there, but hidden. Listen in as millennial Jordan Gross talks about his path of self-discovery – how he tore away the obstacles that stood in his way of realizing what he is meant to do in work and life. Listen especially for the gift he gives us right at the end – the gift of curiosity and what it can open for us. Jordan is currently serving others as the host of the popular “Cloud Nine” podcast, as a coach helping others to find their path, and as a prolific author of how to get along with life.

Listen for:

• What Jordan found lacking in his life during his college internship and first position out of college.

• The two catalysts / turning points that pushed Jordan to follow a new path in life.

• The “work” Jordan currently focuses on as a way to have impact on people – and help them have impact.

• The one piece of advice Jordan would give people to help them get unstuck.

‘Cloud Nine’ moments don’t just have to be big life events. We can try to experience a “Cloud Nine” moment everyday, to focus on the positives, to think about the journey instead of the destination.

After listening to the episode:

  1. Jordan made the point in the interview that he didn’t need a perfect alignment of the stars to take the first step to change his life. Where have you taken that first step? Or are you still waiting for the “perfect” alignment?

  2. A lot of us talk about wanting to have an impact in life. If that phrase has crossed your lips or mind, dig deeper and get specific in terms of what kind of impact you want to have. Jordan realized that his was helping people to reinvigorate their curiosity. What’s yours?
