Joel Brown is based in Bali, Indonesia and has such a powerful vision for the world. His business is Addicted 2 Success motivates people to pursue their vision in life. He has worked alongside greats in the field like Tony Robbins, Gabby Bernstein, Simon Sinek and Gary Vaynerchuk. He sees potential and actively serves people to reach beyond that potential. In this episode, we talk about vision and purpose for his business, God, himself, and others.
Coming in To His Own
Trust me, you’re going to want to move to Bali after listening to him talk about it.
He challenges others to find their priorities and makes sure their actions are in alignment with their vision.
“People who aren’t clear on what their values are, they say yes when they really want to say no. They only think about it after it happens and go ‘why didn’t that feel right?’”
What Is Your Vision?
For a lot of people, there has to be a major mindset shift that gets them to stop thinking of immediate desires, and get focused on their long-term goals.
“If you’re clear on your vision, you start living an intentional life.”
Once people achieve this, they find and create a greater purpose for their life.
He remembers the vision framework taught to him by Jordan Belfort as being particularly powerful. He has used that framework to create his own personal philosophy that he uses to guide himself and clients to achieve their 10-year vision.
Joel doesn’t want to look back on his life and see that he wasted his God-given potential. He feels the same for others.
Take a Chance
Joel acknowledges that when you take a look at all that it costs you, you will realize that it isn’t worth it to be held back, and that there is a greater life to be lived.
“You fuse with it. You think ‘this is a part of me’ and it becomes a part of your identity.”
Fear to Fun!
“When you are living intentionally, you have to negotiate with your mind.”
He finds this reflected in the way he switched up his workout routine--the physical manifests the spiritual and internal. Someone told him it’s like you’re hitting a roof as the workout progresses and once you get there you have to fight the urge to rest and break through the roof.
“I was pushing myself past my mind because my mind starts to panic. After you break through that, your body calms and relaxes.”
“I believe when you match fear, now is the opportunity to turn fear into fun.”
Joel and I are so on the same page, you guys. The physical is profoundly connected to the spiritual.
“The enemy uses fear to bring us into doubt. The more doubt you remove, the more your faith increases.”
Origin, Meaning, Morality + Destiny
Joel believes everyone has to test their beliefs against four things: origin, meaning, morality, and destiny.
When you can identify these disconnects, you can make the shift to align with your beliefs.
“So many people adopt beliefs and don’t know why or where they came from. If you really want to start making good decisions in your life, you have to challenge your thoughts.”
Joel’s vision in life right now is to make an impact in the lives of as many people as possible. He is currently hoping to empower those in third world countries with his programs. How incredible is he? You can keep up with him and his work on Instagram, Facebook, and on his website where you can put in your email address and get his video series delivered to your inbox!
