I'm thrilled to talk with the fabulous author, Gay Hendricks (of the incredible book, The Big Leap), on this week's episode of The Peace and Possibilities Podcast. He's amazingly positive and full of light and great wisdom.
I can't wait for you to listen to his very interesting journey to self improvement and a lifetime of helping others.
As he struggled to find his path and incorporate all of his interests, at one point, one of his mentors said to him, "Hey, why don't you combine your interests?"

Talk to those people who have great confidence in you and listen to them! Believe them!

What makes you get out of bed every morning with a "wow, I get to do this another day"? Find your sweet spot of creativity and be electrified!
Finally, says Gay, "Peace of mind comes from total participation in your life."
Yes, yes, yes, I say!
Peace, it's one of the most important things in life to strive for…
