How to Embrace Challenges & Live Life to Your Fullest

Discover how to get Through the Tough Times, Find the Deeper Meaning in the Challenges, & Fully Live & Embrace Life!

Listen to the podcast below!

SHOW DESCRIPTION:

There’s an expression I once heard from the late Dr. Wayne Dyer, you must die while you’re still alive, or you must almost go through your own death in order to truly live. Well, having gone through two near-death experiences, I think there’s something to that, though I’d never wish it on anyone.

But there’s a simpler way too, if we can open up our hearts and learn from others.

In this episode, we have an amazing spiritual teacher on the show. Mark Nepo is the New York Times best-selling author of The Book of Awakening: Having the Life You Want by Being Present to the Life You Have and his new book Inside the Miracle: Enduring Suffering, Approaching Wholeness.

He’s experienced incredible suffering while having cancer not once, but twice, and at the same time as his former wife. But even in his darkest moments he didn’t become bitter; instead, he’s learned how to truly live, and I believe he’d even call it a miracle.

And that’s what we talk about–how to embrace life fully, to overcome fear and to dive in, head-on and heart-on.

Key Topics:

  • why you can’t block fear, you can only let it through, like wind through a tree
  • radical acceptance
  • letting go of your hopes, dreams and goals in order to open up
  • how letting go is the kindling of your aliveness
  • pay attention to what brings you alive and follow that
  • how to reframe and have trust in the middle of something difficult
  • to be broken is no reason to see all things as broken
  • even if you fall down, you’re on solid ground–build from wherever you’re at, even if it’s a square inch.
  • alcoholism vs. make-aholism
  • best way to honor someone we love is to be the best switch we can
  • the teaching power of trees–we must be rooted, and we must sway or be flexible
  • how a miracle is a process, not an event
  • how to follow your heart
  • how practicing mindfulness–being in the present moment brings you closer to everything that ever lived
  • whatever is opened in you in more important than what opens to you

MORE ON MARK NEPO:

Mark Nepo is a poet and philosopher who has taught in the fields of poetry, health, and spirituality for forty years. A New York Times #1 bestselling author, he has published fourteen books and recorded eight audio projects.

Ultimately, he explores with others how to live wholeheartedly, so we can inhabit the gifts we are born with and find the language of our own wisdom.
