Finding Purpose: David’s Journey

How to overcome the inner voices that say we can’t or shouldn’t try. SuperAge host David Stewart openly describes his journey, complete with the fears, failures and learning curves, and looks at how we can all find our unique purpose. In his mid-fifties, he left a successful career as a photographer to become the founder of AGEIST. Our brutal inner critics combined with the negative messaging of the media can make life transitions like this feel impossible and David, too, had to overcome this. He had found himself in a “metaphorical wilderness” as his long-time industry collapsed and he searched for his purpose in life.

“For me, part of purpose is having a sense of agency in the world…and having a community. And, in my case, we created it and we brought like-minded people together, which is — I can’t tell you how orders-of-magnitude richer and more fulfilling my life is now than when I was a photographer.”
