My guest today is Larry Long Jr, CEO (Chief Energy Officer) of LLJR LLC and the author of the book “JOLT! Get Zapped into Intentionality: Rediscover and Believe in Your Inner Greatness“.
Larry has a lot of energy and passion. But he is also approachable and does not shy away from sharing his own challenges and setbacks that he has faced and had to overcome. It is one of the most genuine conversations I have ever had.
His parents worked for the Veteran’s Administration serving those who had served. And as a result, he moved around quite a bit when he was younger. But it also instilled in him a duty to serve others.
One of his core tenants is “you are what you consume”, and he is not referring to just food, but media, books, even the people with which you surround yourself. If a person consumes negative, they will be negatively charged – and if they consume positive, they will be positively charged.
This is not to say a person needs to become delusional by becoming falsely positive, but that they need to constantly assess that those who are perpetually negative and the professional victims need to be taken in small quantities. And similarly, not to become cynical or loose your empathy, but understand that there is only so much energy that can be devoted to helping others and a person needs to guard against over-investing in one person or cause and neglecting others – seek a balance.
All in, a really great session and I believe you will enjoy it. I did…
