    12DOQ- 8) The Freedom of Releasing What We Cannot Control

    12DOQ- 8) The Freedom of Releasing What We Cannot Control

    Ever wondered how much control you really have in life’s unpredictable rollercoaster?

    Shoutout to Samantha Munro for sparking this episode with her insightful quote: 'Don't stress about the things you can't control.' This idea beautifully ties into our main theme today: Viktor Frankl's powerful philosophy about choice. Frankl, who found hope in the bleakest situations, teaches us that while we can't always control what happens to us, we do have control over how we respond.

    In this episode, we're connecting the dots between Samantha's reminder and Frankl's life lessons. How do we choose our reactions to life’s unpredictable twists? We’re tackling this big question in a down-to-earth way. From handling daily frustrations to navigating life's tougher challenges, we’ll explore how choosing our responses can transform our experiences.

Fantastic chat with Jess about all things running and her Comm Games gold medal run. It was great to hear about the planning, preparations and her mindset going into the race.

Cool People Doing Cool Things

Jackie has some fantastic guests on her show who provide some real gems of wisdom about physical training and everything associated with that. Particularly enjoyed the episode with Ryan Hurst, such an awesome guy!

Kev Ferguson

This interview was a real insight into what drives a person to undertake Ironman. I have listened to interviews with Kev before and none of them have drawn out the highs and lows of a triathlete/ Ironman career like Jackie has. If you are going to listen to one podcast this year, make it this one.
