The Best Version of You

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”

― Albert Einstein

As you know we are passionate about sharing what we have learned about resilience and wellbeing. We do this by talking about it, teaching and writing our articles. This week we were discussing the different ways people learn (visual, auditory and kinaesthetic) and we realised that we have the perfect opportunity to share our thoughts verbally. Therefore, this week’s article is an audio of a podcast that we recorded last year with the fantastic Alan Freedman who runs the wonderful podcast

'Discovering and Living the Best Version...of YOU!'

There is no shortage of resources that urge you to get back up when life knocks you to the ground, and that would be fine if they included effective guidance in one key sadly overlooked area...How to get back up…How to Rise! I knew from the very beginnings of plugging into the collective wisdom of Karen Forshaw and Chrissie Mowbray, that I was on to something special! As the host of this podcast, my greatest challenge was condensing a plethora of life-changing techniques crafted by these deeply gifted women into one 35-40-minute episode. I guess we may simply need to get together again…and again!

Key Topics:

What is self-awareness and how do we make it work in our favour?

There is tremendous power in words! They can be a blessing or a curse!

What is an effective strategy one can employ to ensure they don't give away their power?

Our world with all its fractures, has us "running on empty". The good news is that there exists a strategic resilience tool that is restorative in nature.

What is the power of flow?

What is a beginner's mind and why do we need to invite to "the table" regarding a whole host of issues, those who possess this mindset?

Why is it so vitally important to ensure that our "plate" is never full?

We hope you enjoy this episode. Take the time to look at Alan’s other sessions they are well worth a listen

Dear Dr. Karen and Chrissie: To say it was a privilege and a joy to host the podcast episode we did together, would be an understatement of the deepest order! You guys are the best...a blessing to all those who cross your path! I'm honored to be mentioned along with you! Thank you for the shout out of this important theme. Blessings, Alan

Thank you Alan. We really enjoyed participating! If you ever want us to come along again and discuss any of our other topics, we would be more than happy to do so. Talking about these things does not feel like work!

A bit of a different offering this week. I found it really interesting as I discovered that the podcast wasn't for me?

I thought it was as I may be 'old school' and so I chose not to embrace a more modern approach, or something like that? But no today has made me realise for the first time the reason I struggle with things like podcasts is I'm not an auditory person, but definitely more a visual one? So at least I learned one new thing that can prove to be a big help to me.

Just to say I'm not sure what kinaesthetic is but I'll find out one day I'm sure.

Thanks for all the posts and the…
