S4:E1 - Living In Truth: A Journey with Joe Pomeroy

Jul 04, 2024

Welcome to Season 4 of "Is That SOO?" where our theme is "Living In Truth." I'm Harry Turner, also known as The Nocturnal Therapist, and I'm thrilled to kick off this season with an inspiring guest, Joe Pomeroy. Joe's story is a testament to the power of intentionality, vulnerability, and the pursuit of authentic living.

From Business Success to Personal Struggles

Joe Pomeroy's journey is a compelling one. He found immense success in the business world, helping to grow an eight-figure company from the ground up. However, this professional success came at a cost. Joe faced significant challenges in his personal life, especially in balancing his career with family harmony.

In our candid conversation, Joe shared how he reached a breaking point, realizing that his professional achievements meant little if his personal life was in disarray. This pivotal moment led him to reevaluate his priorities and embark on a path of intentional living.

The 3D Framework: Discover, Decide, Do

Joe developed what he calls the "3D Framework" to help others navigate similar challenges. This framework consists of three essential steps: Discover, Decide, and Do.

1. Discover: Joe emphasizes the importance of self-discovery. This involves asking yourself deep, meaningful questions about what you truly want in life. It's about uncovering your authentic desires and values, rather than living according to others' expectations.

2. Decide: Once you've gained clarity on your desires and values, the next step is to make intentional decisions that align with them. Joe discusses the power of deciding to live by your own definitions and letting go of limiting beliefs and past narratives that no longer serve you.

3. Do: The final step is action. Joe stresses the importance of taking consistent, intentional actions towards your goals. It's about embodying your values in your daily life and making choices that reflect your true self.

Embracing Vulnerability and Authenticity

One of the key themes of our discussion was the power of vulnerability. Joe candidly shared his struggles and the moments of doubt and fear he faced along the way. He believes that embracing vulnerability is crucial for genuine connection and personal growth.

We also talked about the importance of living in truth. For Joe, this means being unapologetically authentic and aligning his actions with his core values. It's about peeling away the facades and presenting your true self to the world.

Practical Tips for Intentional Living

Joe offered several practical tips for those looking to live more intentionally:

  • Start with Self-Reflection: Take time to reflect on what truly matters to you. Write down your values, goals, and desires.
     
  • Set Clear Intentions: Define what intentional living means for you and set clear, actionable goals that align with your values.
     
  • Embrace Discomfort: Understand that growth often comes with discomfort. Lean into it and use it as a catalyst for change.
     
  • Practice Patience: Recognize that change takes time. Be patient with yourself and stay committed to your journey.

Final Thoughts

Joe Pomeroy's story is a powerful reminder that true success is not just about professional achievements, but about living in alignment with your authentic self. His 3D Framework provides a practical guide for anyone looking to achieve balance and fulfillment in their lives.

As we continue this season of "Is That SOO?" I encourage you to join us on this journey of self-discovery and intentional living. Let's embrace our vulnerabilities, live in truth, and create a life that reflects our deepest values and desires.
