Jack Canfield Asks John Bates Why He Is So Passionate About His Work

In response to Jack’s question, in this short video I share a two-minute version of my “origin story.” I hope you enjoy it, but what I really hope is that my short story resonates with you and has you thinking, “Ah, yes, I can see that. Good thing John got over himself…”

This is a slightly embarrassing admission about who I was, and who I became once I realized service is joy. It’s one of several “origin stories” I tell and why I care so much about what I do.

Have you identified and crafted your origin stories, yet? When they are authentic, vulnerable and personal you’ll open the door to meaningful dialog, persuasive storytelling and successful communication.

If you’re interested in getting some support in choosing, crafting and telling your origin stories I can assist you with making better, more productive connections across all of your networks. Don’t miss out on our Speak Like a Leader Experience – cohort base course, beginning October 21st, 2021.

We want to hear your stories, and so does the world.
