Chapter 2: Lean Towards Risk - The odds are better than you think
Have you ever looked back and wished you’d been braver? Of course, you have. It’s because we humans are wired for safety; to focus more on what we could lose than on what we could gain - to steer away from short-term risks and toward whatever shores up our sense of security. But at life’s end, most people regret far more the risks they didn’t take than those they did. In this podcast, I share some of the research from Chapter 2 of Stop Playing Safe – why you need to embrace the discomfort that living your best life ultimately requires of you and the value of daring to lean toward risk... taking the very actions your fear would sooner you didn’t.

Chapter 1: Know Your Why - Decide how you will measure success
The COVID-19 pandemic has been a catalyst for many of us to step back and reassess our lives; what we do with our time and talents each day and why it matters. In Chapter One of Stop Playing Safe, I share my framework for getting ‘on purpose’ so you can develop your greatest strengths in a way that is most meaningful to you.

Dr Phil McGraw: Monsters live in the dark - mental health, reentry fear & building confidence to ‘get back to life'
As we look forward beyond this pandemic, I enjoyed a deep dive conversation with Dr Phil about its impact on mental health, irrational fear and building the confidence to ‘get back to life’.
