This podcast is focused on helping you improve the skill of getting what you want out of your imagination and into your life... from the vision of a someday future into today’s voice, values and lifestyle of your best choosing.
I’ll be sharing useful strategies, philosophies and tactical steps that I’ve observed in my own life as well as working with people all around the world.
In this first episode, I talk about key experiences from my own journey - moments of pain, adventure, self-doubt, insight, and growth - that have shaped my mindset and paradigms by which I lead my life today.
The truth is, I never set out to become a coach, a teacher, or a messenger.
I was always just curious about life, often driven by how to overcome my own personal struggles.
My approach to life, focusing on usefulness rather than seeking “the truth”, has lead to some very unique (often painful) experiences, and significant growth. And I’ve recognized that often the hardest part of success is accepting just how easy it can be.
As these episodes unfold my intention is to co-create this podcast with you, designing this dialogue to best serve your own growth, as we continue to bring you lessons & stories from the front lines of liberated living.
