Esteemed Expert Interview Series
Welcome to the Esteemed Expert Series! I’m so delighted to be sharing with you some interviews from a radio show I had the pleasure to host. In one blog post each month I’ll be bringing you one of my favorite recordings, packed with wisdom and proven resources you can put to use immediately in your own life.
These are such timeless conversations, with such powerful content, that I didn’t want them to just go to waste sitting in the file drawer of history. They contain information that needs to be heard, learned, applied and shared so we can all live healthier, happier lives.
I sincerely hope you enjoy the interviews, and use the valuable tips, tools and practices these amazing experts are sharing with you, to create the life of your dreams!
Today’s Expert: Steve Goodier
This is a wonderful interview I had a couple of years ago with a man whose work and wisdom continue to be a source of great inspiration to me. He is the author of many motivational books, including Lessons of the Turtle: Living Right Side Up.
In today’s interview, you’ll hear (and even “see” thanks to his wonderful visual examples) some of the beautiful, clear lessons Steve is famous for among his fans:
- How pain is NOT avoidable in life, but joy is (a surprising realization!)
- How we don’t have to let pain and hard times define our outlook or feelings
- How bad moods can take us over, and cause us to forget to experience joy
- How we can change our perspective, no matter what is going on around us
- What to do so we don’t fall into feelings of powerlessness (when we’re most at risk for avoiding joy!)
- Specific examples of strategies, attitude and habits that can help you develop a mindset that allows you to experience joy as often as possible
