    Love It or Leave It - Dr. Amina Aitsi-Selmi

    Love It or Leave It - Dr. Amina Aitsi-Selmi

    I am joined today by Dr. Amina Aitsi-Selmi, a Chief Liberation Officer. Before this, she was a doctor who was delivering babies in war zones. She's worked with the United Nations on global disaster risk reduction, and she immersed herself in the world of all things medical with a high intensity life of being a doctor in high-risk zones. Whilst this fulfilled one part of a passion and purpose, there was a slight emptiness and she was really tired of being on the ambition treadmill, chasing one thing after another, and decided to retrain as a coach to support people to really recalibrate their ambition and drive into more healthier ways of working. We have a fascinating conversation on how people can actually make change. How do we take some of this deep ambition and drive and fuel it into a new career? She also turns the tables to ask me my thoughts on the subject.
     
    “I believe that's where coaches can really help, when they help people go inside the mind and the hearts and look at what's going on, and see that they have some power to change” – Dr. Amina

    Love It or Leave It - Our New LILI Shop

    Welcome to Love It or Leave It, in this episode I talk about how we can influence our own transitions. Perhaps you are at the point where you might be thinking, am I ready to leave where I currently work? What else am I looking for as we head into the last three months of the year? What do I want to achieve?
     
    I am fascinated by what it takes to really help people move through transitions, and I'm driven to really help people make changes effectively, but also be the change for other people. This has inspired the new shop coming to Love It or Leave It starting from October 5th, where you will be able to find support through your transition, whatever form that may take.

    Love It or Leave It - What stops you from investing in yourself?

    Love It or Leave It - What stops you from investing in yourself?

    This episode of Love It or Leave It is all about investing in yourself. Investing in yourself is about improving your life, it's improving the lives of those around you, it's about really stepping into the person that you claim you want to become. In this episode I bust the myths that surround why people are afraid to invest in themselves. I also want you to think about how you can invest in yourself and the importance of being able to stop giving away your power, as well as why you need to plan how you will achieve the investment.
