MW062 — Coach and Wide-Angled Observer, Luke Iorio: Being a Quality You Desire

Have you ever had a moment when you’ve found yourself ruminating on something in your life, tossing and turning ideas around in your mind until it’s almost exhausting? In this week’s Meaningful Moment, Luke relates and remembers the origin of The Meaningful Way podcast after attending a conference as a participant: thinking through ideas and approaching a thought regurgitation state — when finally his mind shouted: “What do you really want?”

It was in that moment that Luke realized he had forgotten what he really wanted, and the powerful question arose: What’s really going on here? And through that question, he was able to remember similar past interactions with clients, dive down past the surface to uncover what he was really craving connection to.

Getting stuck happens. It sneaks up on us and can leave us feeling powerless. But, that feeling of stuck-ness can be an opportunity for us to recognize and reflect on the core values and feelings we want and practicing BE-ing the qualities we desire in life.

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.
