Which question will be the one to transform your life, your leadership, and your most precious relationships for the better? After feeling shamefully frustrated at the age of 43 that I could not answer the simple question, ‘What makes you happy,’ I went on a quest to find the answer. I couldn’t locate it in the many books I read, people I talked to, or adventures I pursued. Rather, the answer was revealed over time as I asked myself a simple question again and again and had the willingness and patience to discover the answer. Since that moment, I have embraced Courageous Curiosity as a way of life and this podcast is where I - along with my valued guests - share how we engage with courageous curiosity. It has absolutely transformed our lives, our leadership, and our relationships, and we are excited to see how it will transform yours for the better as well.
How to Raise Resilient Kids in 2022
Today, on Courage to be Curious with Adina Tovell, I dive deep into what parents of resilient kids DON’T do and what they DO do. Over the past 2+ years we have gotten the message that we cannot spare our kids all hardship and discomfort. Unfortunately, attempts we may have made to spare them may have actually made them less confident to confront challenge, failure and hardship. So in today’s episode, I offer some alternatives to trying to keep our kids happy all the time. Alternatives that I hope will help us all feel stronger in the face of challenge and adversity.

A Surprising Place to Locate Your Life Purpose
When was the last time you wondered about your life purpose? What is it? How do I find it?
What is important enough? And when life gets turned on its head, as it has been for the past few years, many of us become more introspective about the path we are on. In this episode of Courage to be Curious with Adina Tovell, I discuss where we typically go looking for our purpose and the very unlikely place it may be hiding in plain sight.
How to embrace simplicity in a chaotic world
My mind, like yours, can easily become seduced by the idea that there is time and room for everything. Like an already overstuffed suitcase, we believe we can always fit one more thing in.
And honestly, we can keep trying, but to what end? What does our life end up looking like when we continually try to fit in just ‘one more thing?’ And what can we do about it if we have this exhausting habit of trying? This is what I am talking about in this week’s episode of Courage to be Curious with Adina Tovell.
When Things Don’t Make Sense
What do we do when things simply don’t make sense. This might describe a lot about the world we live in right now. In Today’s episode of Courage to be Curious with Adina Tovell, I look at the nature of COHERENCE… How it creates the world we live in. How it can help us re-create the world we live in when we grow and are ready for change. And what we can do when the world feels incoherent, and we cannot make sense of things.
Knowing YOU matters. Here's why....
On today’s episode, we begin our season exploring the nature of the SELF. Who are you? What does it mean to be you in the world? What defines you and what does not define you? How do you care for you? With so much happening in our lives every day and with so many things constantly vying for our attention, it is easy to lose track of the SELF. Hold on as we dive deeply into this spiritual and existential conversation. And if you want to explore more, check out our Curiosity Crusader program, a spa-like experience for mind and spirit.
