All of us are interested in finding meaning, purpose, and significance in our lives. And, yet, that all seems to be so elusive for so many. Why is it that some men seem to find their passions early on in life while others seemingly struggle for decades (if not their entire lives) to find the satisfaction they so desperately crave?
My guest today, Jim Shockey, is a man who knows the answer. For decades, he’s followed his passions from journalism, becoming a world-class athlete, building an empire as the “First-Family of Hunting,” and now best-selling novelist. Today, Jim and I talk about dealing with events outside of our control, why a man must have a vision he’s working towards, the concept of self-worth and earned respect, the humility and strength of dealing with loss, and the true meaning of legacy…and how to create it.
“If you drive in one direction for half a century, you end up somewhere.” Tweet That— Jim Shockey
He owns several exclusive outfitting territories in Canada’s wildlands including the famed 12,000 square mile Rogue River Outfitting in the Yukon Territory. His television shows have earned countless awards and his family has affectionately been dubbed, “The First Family of Hunting.”
He also opened the Hand of Man Museum of Natural Arts and Conservation on Vancouver Island which is funded entirely through voluntary donations. Now, add novelist with his newest book, Call Me Hunter, and you’ll begin to catch a glimpse into all this man has accomplished in his incredible life.
