Hi everyone, thanks for tuning into another episode of my Run Your Life podcast. I just wanted to do a quick introduction into the new podcast series SPARKS OF REFLECTION that I am starting up to give you a bit of background into why I am choosing to do this new series.
The purpose of this series is to do a number of very short episodes devoted to sharing my thinking around some important themes that consistently come up in the work that I do as a coach, an educator, a consultant, and a podcast host.
Over the past few years, I have had the opportunity to work with many different people across a number of different fields.
Although most of this work was initially done in the field of education, I find that, regardless of profession, there are many commonalities when it comes to what high performance means and what obstacles stand in the way of people becoming the best version of themselves possible in order to be deeply impactful in their personal and professional life.
The themes of mental, social, emotional and physical well-being, resilience, joy and fulfillment, vulnerability, motivation, staying inspired, and leading with authenticity are consistently woven into the discussions that I have with many high performers.
What separates the great from the good or average is the willingness that certain people have to better understand their own life context and to consistently reflect on what it is they need to do to continually grow, evolve and improve themselves on a daily basis.
This podcast series will be devoted to sharing what I’ve learned and the things I reflect on myself as I pursue my own deeper learning.
My hope is that this podcast series challenges you to think differently about your own life and what may be possible.
Each episode will probably be only 5-7 minutes, but it is my goal and intention to leave you thinking and reflecting on your own performance. Some episodes may resonate, some may not.
What matters most to me is that you stay open and receptive to change and growth in your life. As the saying goes, ‘Sometimes change may not be what we want, but it is exactly what we need in order to keep growing.”
Thanks for listening.
