Episode 35 – Living Your Life and Not The Life Someone Else Has Planned For You w/ AJ Leon

AJ-LeonAllow me to introduce to you the most interesting man in the world and no I am not talking about the old man from the Dos Equis commercial. He nomads around the world and make things happen. He runs the coolest company, Misfit Inc, on this beautiful plant. He writes about living with intention, doing work that matters and changing the world. Basically he is a world traveling professional troublemaker.

I could try to put together a blurb about my guest, but I think it will be best to actually use his own words:

“I write about Living a Deliberate Life. What do I mean by this? For many years, I lived the life I was supposed to live, you know, the one that your parents and your teachers and your friends think you should. I graduated from university Summa Cum Laude with three degrees, and accepted a job offer at the largest firm I could find, paying the highest salary I could get. I did what you do in finance and jumped from firm to firm, following the money and climbing the proverbial ladder. There was this small issue, though. Like many people, it was never the life I actually wanted. On December 31, 2007, four days before my wedding, I stood in my corner office overlooking the Manhattan skyline with tears streaming down my face. I was trapped, living a life following social scripts, playing a game of monopoly I never cared about. I was up for a major promotion I could never walk away from. I was terrified – my life seemed to be sailing further away from who I really was. Then it struck me. I realized that if I didn’t leave right there and then, I was going to be that dude for the rest of my life. For the first time in my life, it occurred to me that I didn’t have to live the life I was supposed to live, I could live the one I was destined to live. I walked out. My very own emancipation. That was the day I decided to stop listening to everyone else, and to start changing the world.” – AJ Leon
