    “When you’re sure there’s more to life than this” A conversation about disillusionment, the rat race. Is there another way?

    “When you’re sure there’s more to life than this” A conversation about disillusionment, the rat race. Is there another way?

    This podcast series explores a game-changing understanding of the human mind that can exponentially increase the performance, resourcefulness and well-being for any individual or organisation. 
     




    In this episode Piers chats with fellow coach Helen Amery. They discuss the common, but misunderstood topic of disillusionment. Usually we think it’s terrible to be in a state of confusion or disappointment about life when in fact these times provide the perfect opportunity to discover something new and fresh. If you’re asking these questions - Is this it? Does it have to be this hard? - then this episode is for you.




    We talk about:




    How we can normalise a low level of satisfaction with life and become 'comfortably numb', before we get more aware of being disillusioned with our lives
    What is going on when you aren't feeling connected and loving life?
    How your lifestyle and circumstances are never actually causing your disillusionment with life - it just really looks like they are
    How we confuse what is a brick and what is jelly.....(jelly & bricks - yes,really!)

    How we become limited by our imaginations about what is possible


    The illusion of being trapped by our need for a certain lifestyle and money

    How, once we understand what’s going on, we see we have infinite possibilities, including staying with the exact life we already have but with a deeper sense of contentment and joy.

    What is at the core, behind the 'magic' of Quality of Mind? A chat with corporate coach Dominic Scaffidi

    This podcast series explores a game-changing understanding of the human mind that can exponentially increase the performance, resourcefulness and well-being for any individual or organisation. 
     
    Please note this episode gets a little technical (or some might say profound!) so you might want to listen first to some other episodes (e.g.  benefits and role and relevance of Quality of Mind)
     
    This is part 3 of series of chats with fellow coach Dominic Scaffidi - in this conversation we reveal what we have been pointing to in other episodes: What is it that we are realising about the nature of the human experience and reality that unlocks so much resourcefulness, potential and wellbeing in people?
     
    In this episode we discuss:
    How innocently and invisibly we usually start in the wrong place
    What do you think we mean when we say 'you' or 'I'? We reveal a different view...
    What is this 'real but not true' and illusion all about?
    How the very nature of reality is misunderstood, and that leads to us to being more of a limitation of potential than we need to be.
    So what next?
