Meghan is joined by the ever-compelling Amy Wong on this week’s episode of Impact. Amy is a leadership and transformational coach and the founder of  Always On Purpose®. Amy started out studying and teaching math and then went on to get a master’s degree in transpersonal psychology to feed her hunger for answers to life’s big questions. She’s written a book called “Living on Purpose, Five Deliberate Choices to Realize Fulfillment and Joy.”


Amy says the first step is to ask yourself – What’s more important? Playing it safe or changing the world? From there, you can make choices that get you to your goals. Living with intention means taking full responsibility for your choices. If you can learn to do that, you are never a victim of circumstance.


However, we all know that making big choices can bring about anxiety and nervousness. The key is to realize that you are always standing for something, which is your primary underlying objective. When you stand for growth and not conflict avoidance, your life will change radically.


Eloquence and innovation come from taking a stand for what you believe in and rechanneling all your doubt or anxiety into one focal point. This focusing mechanism is a powerful tool. When you claim what you want, you become empowered and feel unity, love and harmony in your life.
