“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”
– Jim Rohn
What if there were a place where anyone could go to find passionate and inspiring people in their local community, anywhere in the world, who believed in the same values and possibilities, and could help each other succeed in doing work that matters – both to you and to the world?
And imagine if that group met at least every month to discuss and build upon their big ideas.
What would that look like?
The below short video might give you an idea. On January 7th, 2013 thousands of people from 150 cities in 48 countries all showed up on the same day, for our first global meetup (and dance party)…
Live Your Legend LOCAL is a tool and community based on a simple principle…
The fastest way to do the things you don’t think can be done is to hang around people already doing them.
Our goal is to help you find and do work that makes you come alive – by surrounding yourself with the people who make it possible. And there is no better way to genuinely and naturally connect with passionate, inspiring people than meeting them in the real world.
In a world of never-ending online “connections” and friend requests, true friends are becoming fewer and farther between. We have lost sight of what it means to genuinely connect with another human in real time. To sit down with them and share our ideas and struggles. To discuss and discover what’s really possible.
The Internet has allowed us to connect with amazing individuals from all over the world, but we sometimes forget or undervalue the power of sitting in the same room with a living, breathing person. Those connections are essential, especially when you’re on the road less traveled.
We are all meant to have an impact, and with the right approach, effort and surroundings, we can find and do work that excites us and embodies who we are. We can leverage our talents, strengths and passions to help people and actually make a difference.
We believe that when we begin doing the work that matters to us, it begins to matter to the rest of the world as well. That creates a ripple effect that can change the world. We believe that change is already happening, thanks to you. Without your support, this revolution and movement would not exist.
We see it as everyone’s responsibility to create an environment that inspires this possibility – not just for us, but for everyone around us. The people around you create who you are. If they inspire you, you’ll be inspired. If they depress you, you’ll be depressed.
The days of feeling like you and your “crazy” ideas are all alone in this world are over! We’re now officially in your corner. All that’s left to do is show up.
And it’s 100% in your control.
You are the average of your surroundings.
Choose your friends wisely. Then watch what happens…

Hi! I’m Scott and while I may have founded Live Your Legend and LYL Local, we are all the leaders. None of this would exist without the community that makes it possible. So thank you!
Now let’s cue the odd third person voice … 😉
Scott Dinsmore’s mission is to change the world by helping people find what excites them and build a career around the work only they are capable of doing. He is a career change strategist whose demoralizing experience at a Fortune 500 job launched his quest to understand why 80% of adults hate the work they do, and more importantly, to identify what the other 20% were doing differently.
His research led to experiences with thousands of employees and entrepreneurs from 158 countries. Scott distilled the results down to his Passionate Work Framework – three surprisingly simple practices for finding and doing work you love, that all happen to be completely within our control. One of them, of course, is choosing your surroundings. His TEDx talk has been viewed over 7 million times and ranks in the top 20 of over 40,000 talks.
