I’m Justin Brown

Founder of Ideapod

I have a question:

Does this describe you?

You feel stuck in a rut.

You know you want to change your life, but you have no idea how.

You feel like you’ve got more to contribute to the world, but it’s so daunting to figure out where to begin.

If this is the way you feel, I want you to know that I completely understand.

I used to feel the same way. A deep sense of loneliness. A lack of meaning in life. A huge amount of frustration that life wasn’t going the way I wanted it to.

I was in a rut. And it felt like there was no way out.

There were three things I had to do to change the direction of my life. Once I did these three things, everything started to change.

These 3 things changed my life

Once I started doing these three things on a consistent basis, it wasn’t just that I was changing at a personal level. My external life started to change. My work changed. My output transformed. Ideapod became very different.

On the journey, I lost some friendships, but strengthened the ones that really mattered to me. I gave up some of my goals, but developed other goals that were true to my purpose and values.

I don’t want to tell you a story about living a perfect life. My life isn’t perfect, and I don’t think we should aspire to be the richest or most successful people on the planet.

What I’ve managed to do is take control, stand up for myself and create a life around my values and purpose in life.

These are the three things that have been crucial for me.


Stop caring what people think

This sounds simple, but it’s actually really difficult. To stop caring what people think, you need to know yourself and be sure of the direction you’re headed.

When you start to waver in your inner resolve, it’s easy to be swayed what others think. When you have inner strength, it becomes a lot easier to go in your own direction.


Start doing things in life that are aligned with your purpose

There’s a lot of talk about purpose, but very little guidance on find your true purpose.

I’d pretty much given up on finding my purpose. Then I was walking the streets of Sao Paulo with the shaman Ruda Iande, and he brilliantly shared a simple way for anyone to immediately discover their purpose.

He showed me I needed to shift from focusing on “what I can take from life today” to “how I can contribute to life today.”


Make incremental progress everyday towards goals that come from within

I had to ask myself:

Where do my goals come from? Are they my own goals? Or have I convinced myself to pursue goals that help other people achieve their objectives, as opposed to me achieving what I truly want in life.

Once I was able to find myself and develop a new set of goals, life became meaningful from the actions I was undertaking every day.

These actions put me in service of others in humble ways.

Living your life with passion and purpose

I want to help you to live your life with passion and purpose.

When you live life in this way, without worrying so much about what people think, everything starts to change.

You take pleasure in the small things. You feel nourished from helping others rather than always focusing on yourself. Your relationships are stronger. You feel a genuine sense of freedom from the expectations of others.

Paradoxically, accomplishments follow from living your life in this way. They start to come when you stop focusing on them and start to live in the present moment.

Why am I telling you this?

Because I believe that if you feel like you’re stuck in a rut, you are able to head down a similar pathway that I’m on. You are able to connect with your purpose in life right now and design a life that truly nourishes you and the people around you.

You are able to connect with people in truly meaningful ways from a place of humility. You can change your life. You can contribute in profound ways to the world, to the human species, to the whole web of life on earth.

You are someone who is incredibly special. Your life matters. You have so much to contribute.

I can help you change your life

You registered for one of our masterclasses or salons. You’re part of the Ideapod community.

I have a very unique and special offer for you.

This offer isn’t available anywhere else on the site. It’s a special offer that ends today.

This offer will give you the building blocks to stop caring what people think, start doing things in life aligned with your purpose and make progress every day towards achieving your goals.

I’m giving you full access to my online workshop, Developing Your Personal Power. The usual price is $160, but with this special offer it’s heavily discounted.

taking responsibility screens Special offer: Developing Your Personal Power + Bonuses

As part of this 30-day online workshop (we call it a “journey”), you get lifetime access to 5 modules which contain videos, lessons and action steps to help you develop your personal power.

It’s built around a 5-step process to create a motor of change deep within so that you can move forward powerfully in life. You can see the full breakdown of the online workshop below.

By the end of the journey, you have clearly identified your purpose in life, created goals aligned with your purpose and you’ll be living life with a motor of change embedded deep within.

Here’s one of the videos from Module 2. Check it out to get a snapshot of what the workshop is like.


Bonus: 2 eBooks to support you on your journey

As part of this special offer, you’ll also get immediate access to two of our bestselling eBooks.

I’ve personally selected them because they share crucial messages for embracing what I teach in Developing Your Personal Power.

Why Taking Responsibility is Key to Being the Best You will inspire you to get started in making change. Taking responsibility has been absolutely key for me.

The next book, Why Positive Thinking is Terrible Advice, is powerful because it provides an important antidote to the cult of positive thinking. Positive thinking has its uses, but it needs to be combined with what we teach in our online workshops and eBooks. This eBook breaks it down and will help you on the journey to claiming ownership of your personal power.

Plus: Prime membership to join a supportive community
