The Health Episodes #2: The Importance of Playing, Why You Need to Be Afraid, How to Make a Mind-Shift, & More Shenanigans

By | Podcast | No Comments

The reason I used a photo of me skydiving is because that is literally the ONE thing I said I would never do. Why you ask? My answer has always been that if something goes wrong it’s REALLY gonna go wrong… I didn’t want to destroy my back or knees with a hard landing, I’ve had nightmares since childhood of falling from the sky (don’t know where that came from), and then there’s always that small death piece that could happen if the shoot doesn’t open.  I managed to go 42 years without jumping out of a plane until a client of mine set it as her goal.

During our time working together she had overcome such incomprehensible tragedy and faced fears on a daily basis.  This was her way of saying “I can do anything”, and she wanted me to do “anything”, skydiving, with her :-).  How the hell could I say no, and let me tell you I am glad I didn’t.  What I had been afraid of for so long was one of the coolest and most freeing experiences of my entire life.  I didn’t feel like I was falling, I felt like I was flying.  I didn’t hurt my knees or back, the landing was so smooth I barley felt it, and no… I’m not dead…  I faced my fear, and it opened my mind and allowed me to learn from the experience and grow.

In this episode Alix and I talk about:

  • Why you need to do something that scares you from time to time
  • Why you need to get out and play on a regular basis
  • How to make a permanent mind-shift regarding how you set your personal goals
  • And More!
