577: Embracing Uncertainty and Navigating Tomorrow’s World with Jordan Gross

As Told By Nomads

In today’s episode of the As Told by Nomads Podcast, join me and my guest, Jordan Gross, as we talk about the four distinct mindsets during uncertainties and how behaviors help people cultivate opportunities by navigating change. Jordan shares how development is better taught through parables and fables as someone who leverages the relatability of creative storytelling. From there, he also speaks on his new book “What Happens in Tomorrow World?” and its arcade-like approach to representing the future and life’s uncertainties. There’s a lot to take notes from in this episode, so make sure to tune in to Jordan.Personal Development Through Story Telling Instead of a prescriptive approach, Jordan uses a different manner to teaching development through storytelling. He shares that fun and adventure are a must in his life. Which is the reason why stories with zig-zaggy and non-linear flows always resonate with Jordan. For him, this particular nature of parables and fables, if used creatively, can also be a potent tool for teaching lessons and morals, as proven precisely in his latest book. With the emotional appeal of stories that draw people in, readers find it easier to pay attention to details and find themselves in the levels of every character. Storytelling can teach lessons by leaving people with the opportunity to make their own decisions and assessment after the story. Jordan sees this differently from the ‘do this do that’ type of teaching that often lacks relatability. Because stories take a more creative and stimulating approach to connecting with the reader’s mind, people are then allowed to learn different messages from stories using their own imaginations without losing their autonomy.Outline of the episode:[04:03] On embracing the uncertainties of life.[07:00] The 4 Common Mindsets That Arise During Uncertainties.[11:01] Personal development through creative storytelling.[12:45] Over-optimism can exist too; Is optimism always the answer?[15:05] Toxic positivity and genuine positivity.  [16:55] How can you turn your passion into sustainable business opportunities?[22:59] “Opportunity precedes passion.”[26:51] Is there a correlation between solitude and opportunity?[28:52] What is Tomorrow World?[31:51] Have something you can call “yours only” that can make a difference.Resources:Website: https://jordan-gross.com/Grab your copy of Tomorrow World now: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/195066595XAlso, check out The Journey to Cloud Nine: https://www.amazon.com/Journey-Cloud-Nine-Confront-Redefine-ebook/dp/B0815S6DY3Jordan’s Book Inspiration: https://www.amazon.com/Moved-Cheese-Spencer-Johnson-M-D/dp/0743582853Subscribe to the UYD Collective: https://tayorockson.podia.com/uydcollectiveConnect with Tayo Rockson and the As Told By Nomads Podcast on:Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/tayorockson Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcastTwitter: See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

51. PI #51: Jordan Gross - light people up

Jeff Weigh

On this episode I share my interview with Jordan Gross; executive coach at Cloud Nine Living whose purpose is to light people up. A 2 time author, 3 time company founder and also a tedx speaker. On work-life balance; I've thought about it a lot and I actually hate that word. It's work-life integration and it's a feedback loop. Work should flow into life and vice versa. Background Jordan seemed set for a great career having obtained a management role in a prestigious restaurant. However, 4 months in he took a step back and realised he wasn't having the impact that he wanted to have. He left that job and decided to write his first book (which he self published) titled; 'Getting Comfy' - your morning guide to daily happiness. It focuses on optimism and positivity. Cloud Nine Living Jordan has recently set up Cloud Nine Living (a business) where he works with people and walks them through a process that truly 'light people up'. The journey to Cloud Nine is also a fiction book; allowing the reader the opportunity to interpret it for themselves. Consequently as part of his research, Jordan has interviewed lots of people to understand their 'cloud nine' moments. The aha moment! Many of us are obsessed about having an 'aha moment'. Jordan's 'aha moment' was the realisation that he didn't need an 'aha moment' to take control of his own life and get things started. That's exactly what he did when he decided to write Getting Comfy. However, with Cloud Nine there was an alignment of the stars that got him going. But you'll have to listen to the episode to find out! What I will share is that it involves Jordan having a conversation that involves an example of a cloud nine moment. Light people up is exactly what Jordan did to me during our conversation and this is now core to everything he does. Find out more Finally if you would like to start a conversation with Jordan, you can find him on; Twitter LinkedIn More details can be found on his website.
