Welcome back to Episode #20 of The Daily Interaction podcast. Today’s topic is by a request from a listener and a friend John Kowalski who asked me to talk about controlling our internal energy. How do you interact with yourself, your thoughts, your mind and your wealth of ideas when your excitement is just over the moon?
The reason I took John’s request, besides always listening to your requests and acting on it, is just how much I relate. I can truly get the struggle that John has with so much internal energy from all the excitement for dreaming big and bigger all the tine. It is the challenge when you feel completely liberated and empowered to pursue your calling and follow your purpose in life and it’s no easy task to control the energy without crushing it.
In this podcast, I talk about what has worked for me as well as what has not worked, and give you fun and useful stories. Take a listen!
