In the seventh episode of the
Coached Podcast’s new season, Coach Keren is joined by guest host
Greg Scheinman for the second time to answer YOUR questions on the
midlife shift. Greg is a Performance Coach, Speaker, Author &
Creator of The Midlife Male Podcast & Newsletter.
Today, Greg and Keren
thoughtfully advise two callers who are wondering if they are too
old to find love, or too old to find their life’s purpose. They
give insightful answers and suggestions on how to love ourselves,
how to turn inward, and how to create a life of fulfillment and
meaning. When you start doing things that light you up daily you
will be living a life of purpose – cumulatively.
IN THIS EPISODE:
- [03:36] Keren discusses how the midlife shift
can be compared to adolescence – and how you can turn stagnation
and purposelessness into healing.
- [04:03] Keren welcomes Greg Sheinman back to
the show – they recap the last episode and discuss the vulnerable
and relatable questions from the previous callers
- [07:15] The first caller, Breanna, opens up
about how first of all she loves herself, but second of all, she is
feeling self-doubt because her boyfriend broke up with her for a
younger woman. She wants to know how to feel empowered in this
- [11:51] Keren empowers Breanna and validates
her feelings by telling her, “ love yourself enough to understand
that he is not for you because he is not appreciating all the
magnificence of you. There are no deal breakers in real
- [18:34] The second caller Mattius talks about
the anxiety of finding his purpose at 46. Greg explains that the

doing things that we enjoy or things that make us feel good daily
will add up cumulatively to create a life of

Purpose is doing anything that creates fulfillment and meaning.
Flow is anything that you are doing that makes you lose all sense
- [25:50] Keren gives tips on how to find out
what lights you up, what you are obsessed with, and what will help
you to live a happy life full of purpose.
- The Midlife crisis can be compared to
adolescence in that it can be a turbulent time with acting out,
extreme behaviors, and rage against change – instead we should be
turning inward, processing what is happening, and
- When you love yourself and live your life being
honest and true to yourself – you will find a partner suited
perfectly to you. There is no time frame for finding love, you can
find who is perfect for you at 42 or 60.
- Your age doesn’t have to dictate who or how you
are – you can be an old 40-year-old or a young 60 year old; it is
all in the way you carry yourself. How you live, how you operate,
and how you execute. Is there vibrance in your face, in your eyes,
in your body? How you live is up to you.
- If day in and day out, you start choosing the
things that light you up from inside that you're obsessed with,
that you would do if nobody paid you, you will certainly be living
a life of purpose.
