MW068 — Coach and Wide-Angled Observer, Luke Iorio: Relationships Matter

Think about a relationship that is meaningful to you. Perhaps a meaningful relationship is with a family member who really “gets” you. Perhaps it’s a group of close friends who have stayed together and seen each other through milestone after milestone. Today, we recognize that being a part of those relationships, whatever they look like for you, is a gift that is special.

Relationships are important to our physical well-being. When we have relationships in our life, we quite literally live longer. We’re happier. We feel our lives are more meaningful. But, relationships don’t always come without struggles and conflict. Through the years, with dedication and cultivation, you can learn how to focus on what matters and really be there for each other. You realize that we don’t have to do everything alone.

This week, we encourage you to cultivate the relationships in your life. Start with one, really close relationship that you would like to see grow and deepen, and take a small step towards making a deeper connection. Maybe it’s through sending a thank-you card, texting that person to tell them what they mean to you, taking that person out for coffee. Whatever works for you. And feel gratitude for the special opportunity you have to share your life with others.

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.
