eams, live in the moment, and joyfully do the things that make us come alive.

Each of us was created for something great—we just need to figure out what it is and find the courage to do it. Whether it’s writing the next great American novel, starting a business, or joining a band, Rob Bell wants to help us make those dreams become reality. Our path is ours and ours alone to pursue, he reminds us, and in doing so, we derive great joy because we are living our passions.

How to Be Here lays out concrete steps we can use to define and follow our dreams, interweaving engaging stories, lessons from biblical figures, insights gleaned from Rob’s personal experience, and practical advice. Rob gives you the support and insight you need to silence your critics, move from idea to action, take the first step, find joy in the work, persevere through hard times, and surrender to the outcome.

Like Stephen Pressfield’s classic The War of Art, How to Be Here will inspire readers to seek the lives they were created to lead.

In this episode we spoke to Rob about the human condition, how to find your passion, we demystify success and fame. We rationalize the emotional chaos that comes with finding who we are and what we are meant to do with our lives and so so much more.

This conversation will change the way you see your life.

    If eyes opening made a sound, you would hear a loud groaning as mine open! I have contemplated the ways and meanings of life in the way these guys were sharing. The grass is always greener on the other side or try not to compare oneself to others (their lives may look glamorous & exciting, but we rarely see whats under the surface. Like the huge ice burg, most of which is submerged under water and not visible to the naked eye, this is most likely how much we really see of peoples lives that we envy!). Moral of this story is beware of what you wish for….
    Excellent 55 minutes of listening and gives one pause to think and reconsider how much they really need in the life they have now to be happy. That elusive happiness we all strive for is like water in your hand it’s hard to hold on to…I guess like any great endeavor, it’s a work in progress…
    I have to listen again and then again because there is a lot to listen to and HEAR!
