Take off the rose colored glasses and put your love goggles on instead. This is the real deal fairytale on getting the life, the love, and the true happiness that you desire.

Key Takeaways:

The waiting game! You’ve gone on a million gazillion dates. Where is he – the love of your life? If you want to re-engineer your course to get a different, more fruitful result, it doesn’t start with focusing on your potential love interest. Here’s what’s actually missing from the equation [7:40].

Pop quiz! The one question you never stopped to ask yourself, but should, when it comes to getting what you want in love and happiness. Hint: you can apply this very question to every area of your life…it’s that simple and powerful [9:10].

Lather, rinse, and repeat! Too busy to “check-in” with yourself? How present are you from moment to moment? This self-soothing exercise will peel back the layers to what you truly “need…” not just what you think you need (call it a Jedi mind trick). And the bonus: you can build it right into your schedule and it costs absolutely nothing. [13:48].

Crack the code! Want to be free from self-deprecation? Want to have progress over perfection? How to change your optic lens so when life isn’t going as planned, it’s not a fail. It’s THIS very thing that will break you out of imprisonment and into empowerment [20:56].

Tune in and turn the volume up for a dose of inspiration and life lessons. That’s how we Live Lead and Play! 

Meet the host, Luke Iorio
All you really need to know is this: Luke Iorio is a dad, a spouse, an entrepreneur, a conscious growth strategist, coach, blogger, podcaster, a wide-angled observer, and enthusiastic participant in the game of life who seeks to ask and answer, “What’s truly possible?”
So where does that all come from? Well, for that we need to answer this: How does a shy kid from the suburbs of New Jersey grow up to become a conscious strategist, sought-after coach and speaker, and disrupter of life’s “good enough” status quo?
In a nutshell, Luke intentionally pushed through some of his most palpable moments, or what he calls inflection points. These moments included standing on stage, gripping a microphone, and getting totally out of his comfort zone. This repeated intention to “choose different” has catapulted Luke toward stellar success.
So, what happens AFTER you choose…when you start to take meaningful action? That’s when an inflection point becomes an open road — a pathway to living your intended purpose.
Luke’s path looks something like this…he became President of The Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching at age 32, and has since graduated more than 11,000 coaches, leaders, athletes, and professionals across 44 countries, all of whom share his vision and desire for expanding our human potential and creating lasting, conscious change.
You could say Luke’s manifesto reads something like an everyday philosopher and spirited entrepreneur having been inspired early on by the likes of Napoleon Hill and Og Mandino. Nowadays, his intrinsic curiosity and wisdom is paying off as a media personality quoted on The Huffington Post, Fox Business, and Next Avenue, and most recently taking to the airwaves to entertain life’s pivotal questions with the help of celebrated thought leaders, mentors, and everyday unsung heroes.
