[15:00] Shifting Perspectives and Embracing Life’s Setbacks

In life, we always have a choice in how we react or respond to situations. Whether you’re an athlete or a parent, you understand that winning isn’t guaranteed and setbacks are part of the journey. These setbacks can be seen as failures but often they are just redirections. Taking life personally is not productive. Things are not just happening to you, it’s happening to everyone. It’s all about deciding how we choose to feel about it. Delve into personal development. Surround yourself with people who are also actively working on personal growth. Read books, listen to podcasts, attend workshops, and engage in mastermind groups – all in the effort of letting go of things that no longer serve you. The beliefs and conditioning ingrained in us during childhood become our responsibility to change as adults, whether it’s related to money mindset or self-worth.

[27:32] Embracing Change: Trusting Your Intuition and Exploring New Paths

When contemplating change, surround yourself with supportive people who won’t dismiss your ideas. Sharing your decision with accomplished people in your industry or even your own mother may elicit disbelief or labels like boredom. But deep down, you know it’s not about being bored; it’s about a profound sense of knowingness and intuition. Others may want you to stay where you are, but only you truly understand your thoughts. Take the time to explore what this future holds without feeling the need to abandon everything at once.
