MW076 — Coach and Wide-Angled Observer, Luke Iorio: If I Wait

Have you ever caught yourself thinking “I’ll be happy when…”? We could fill in the blanks with a variety of thoughts, such as:

“I’ll be happy when…I find that perfect relationship.”

“I’ll be happy when…I get that promotion.”

“I’ll be happy when…my book is written.”

It’s a common experience to get caught up in these types of thoughts and feel the patterns of waiting for something in order to feel the way we desire to feel.

This type of “when” syndrome, however, can lead to regret, pain and so much delay or action not taken that the “thing” may not even happen.

How do we work to adjust our awareness and embrace the feelings we desire NOW, rather than waiting for “when”? Listen in on this week’s Meaningful Moment for Luke’s story, and the question he asks himself and his clients to help push past waiting and re-connect to what really matters in your 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.
