Dov Baron – The Fall That Changed Everything

There are moments in our lives that we always remember, and there are moments that we never forget. For Dov, that moment in June 1990 probably sits at the top of his list of unforgettables. While on a rock climbing expedition, the adrenaline junkie and successful career man fell face first from a height of 120 feet.

“It was the opportunity to break me open and reveal the truth of who I am on a purpose level.” – Dov Baron

It was the end of his life as he’d known it. But it was a lot like breaking open the shell of who he was. It made him re-examine the purpose behind everything that he did.

Purpose Equals Giving

Humans have six basic needs. The first four of them is all about oneself. It took hitting rock bottom, quite literally, for Dov to realize when enough is enough.

“Purpose is not about what you get, it’s about what you give. So happiness comes from what we get, but fulfillment comes from what we give.” – Dov Baron

Once Dov realized what he’s meant to do in order to give to others, he began changing his approach. He’s now known as a speaker coming to the aid of organizations who wish to cultures of loyalty and purpose, led by purpose-driven leaders.
