We had the good fortune of connecting with Mitch Darnell and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Mitch, what principle do you value most?
The Purpose-Driven Life is the principle that guides and informs me the most. By seeking to live a Purpose-Driven Life, I strive to make choices and actions that serve a more honorable and valuable purpose than simply to satisfy my “needs”, or other basic instincts. This commitment is often lonely, as few people wish to consider Purpose, because it rarely sees “profit”, “vendetta”, “revenge”, or “opportunity to make others less” as an honorable/worthy Purpose. Meanwhile, having this as my primary guiding principle inspires my hope to leave a legacy that may resonate with others and inspire them to live likewise.
Please tell us more about your art. We’d love to hear what sets you apart from others, what you are most proud of or excited about. How did you get to where you are today professionally. Was it easy? If not, how did you overcome the challenges? What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?
My art is creating an organization out of passion and ideas. I’m VERY blessed to be inspired, and to lead a Purpose-driven Life which gives me passion to pursue those ideas.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
So a week-long trip to here HAS to include:
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Wow, so many have positively impacted me that it’s hard to narrow it down!.. Kellogg’s – When I was Tony The Tiger for Kellogg’s I received my initial costumed character experience that left me with a lifelong epiphany around how one can make a difference for hospitalized children!
Then my buddy George Tastard, ever the business mind, told me to take action and become a Wedding Officiant! Around the same time, I also founded The League of Heroes Inspired, which takes my Tony The Tiger experience, informed and lead by my education in Archetypes and Life Pathwork, AND my Landmark Education training around Integrity and seeing Possibilities in Life.. And we started visiting children and our annual gift drive, building up to what is now the World’s only Therapeutic Cosplay(c) service for kids worldwide. Meanwhile, I’ve had the honor of performing approximately 150 or so weddings – Some InspirationWeddings(c); some standard weddings – And what a GREAT learning experience from so many couples!!
