One Christmas a young Dr. Mike Woo-Ming was on call in the ER and encountered a doc who looked much older than him…but wasn’t. That doctor said after years of practice he still had to work holidays to be able to support his family.
When Mike realized this could be his future if he continued practicing medicine as he had been, he went to work changing his present. He started companies, left clinical medicine for a time, and has been wildly successful as an entrepreneur. He now aims to pass on what he learned to other physicians who want to take control of their financial futures.
This week's Quit of the week is Quitting Holiday Dread!
This one goes out to those who have to face the holidays alone. I'm right there with you, and we'll make it through...together:)
Is running around trying to get everything ready and perfect for your holiday celebrations turning you into the grinch?
I've got some tips for bringing a little space and calm back into your life, and a reminder that no one is expecting perfection in presents, they're just happy to have your presence:)
Think about how many times we are disappointed with ourselves because we feel we are not yet a ‘success,’ or worse, that something we tried to do was a ‘failure.’
This week’s guest, Solonia Tedros, suggests we take a look at success and failure not as these giants in our head to be achieved or feared, but rather all parts of the journey of self-discovery. She defines success as being able to arrive at your purpose, and recommends that instead of evaluating every move as a success or failure, we instead check in with ourselves and our growth.
Have you ever worked for years to achieve your dream job, only to realize that it wasn’t nearly as dreamy as it may have seemed?
Author, founder, and coach extraordinaire Ajit Nawalkha experienced just that feeling after working years to become the CEO of Mindvalley. At which point he came to the realization that you can earn a living without sacrificing your quality of life. His story is a true inspiration to those whose dream big, for it shows you can not only achieve those dreams, but you can also strategically walk away if and when those achievements no longer serve you.
“There’s more to life than this.”
That ONE thought sent Wellness Force founder and host Josh Trent on a journey of self-exploration and creation that has allowed him to grow through the discomfort of the changes life has thrown his way. He has learned that the only way he can heal and evolve and expand his consciousness is simply to tell the truth until it’s no longer uncomfortable.
Thanks to the multitude of experiences along his journey, including the many quits he’s faced along the way, Josh is now able to speak and share from a place he’s been, which is evident in the wisdom he shares as one of today’s strongest voices in the movement of emotional and physical intelligence.
