Jordan Axani on Unexpected Fame, Imposter Syndrome, and The Myth of Life Purpose

Jordan Axani is a globally-renowned personality focused on digital authenticity and well-being, and was once the focus of one of the most viral human interest stories in the history of the internet. (Don't worry, he shares all about it in this episode!)

Jordan is now a speaker, writer, and the host of a new podcast called Impostercast, a show about faking it that launches in June 2016.

In this episode, Jordan shares the intimate details of how, basically overnight, he became the focus of one of the most viral human interest stories in the history of the internet. He shares the truth behind the internet glitz, and how the experience lead him into a deep depression. We talk about the struggle to not let your work (or one thing about you) become the thing that defines your life, and we dig into why Jordan thinks that trying to find your life purpose is actually harmful. This conversation covers all of that, plus the all-too-common feelings of imposter syndrome we all feel from time to time, and how to re-frame our desire to leave a legacy. Jordan's stories were incredibly thought-provoking for me, and I hope the same proves true for you!
