Chelsea Dinsmore is the owner and Chief of Community Happiness at Live Your Legend (LYL), a global community that helps people do meaningful work, make a living off something they love and are passionate about, and use their talents and strengths to give back to the world.
Live Your Legend focuses on the creation of in-person connections with like-minded living legends. The career and connection platform also aims to inspire and educate people so they can live their lives with purpose and find fulfilment and meaning in all they do. To date, they host in person meet ups monthly in over 260 cities across 65 countries.
Live Your Legend was founded by Chelsea’s late husband Scott Dinsmore. As Live Your Legend’s Chief Experimenter, he not only provided practical career tools, he also connected people worldwide and placed community at the center of their success. While the writer, traveler, entrepreneur, and TED speaker sadly passed away while on a year-long trek around the world, his legacy lives on through Chelsea and his strong community of doers and dreamers.
This week’s episode talks about the power of mindfulness and how it can help people design a life that suits them, why passion alone is not enough, and why writing and journaling is so powerful.
Chelsea also shares her thoughts on external versus internal validation, what writing does for her, and how she got over her self-doubt.
On mindfulness, Chelsea has this to say, “It’s not necessarily about sitting there and not thinking. It’s about managing your thoughts in a better way.”
