Contribution to the key of fulfillment

Words cannot express how much I enjoyed this podcast because I am someone who believes in learning and evolving!!!!

Paul you mentioned how powerful our brain is and I agree because I have over the past 4 years went back to therapy and I have worked on retraining my brain because I finally faced the inner demons that I buried for years and one of the things I needed to do was to retrain my brain but for me it’s also believing what I’m retraining my brain for an example one thing I’ve done is writing post it notes throughout my house with the truth not the lies that was carved in my head as child such as God loves me and etc. Its so important for me to actually believe what I’m saying, what I’m feeding my brain so you believing is so important. I have chosen to feed my brain good healthy thoughts. Like you said Paul we aren’t ever ready to do anything so we have to be motivated and for me my motivation of enjoying and having a hunger to learn and to evolve is because of my abusive childhood which I’m cool with because I’ve learned so much and I’m a kind person and etc because of my childhood so it’s all good.
Ever since the age of 13 ( I am middle aged now) I have learned from others and from myself because I never gave up on hope, I had hope that I would have a blessed and beautiful life and I do! I made promises to myself and I’ve kept them so my point is yes, need to find what will motivate us to do things if it’s our careers or being a mom / wife as myself so my childhood has been a big motivation for me!!

Paul & Michael you mentioned that we need to ask ourselves the right questions and I agree with you! I asked myself what do I need to do to change the outcome of a relationship that was toxic ( it’s not my husband) I knew I couldn’t change the person so I chose to walk away from this toxic relationship because I felt like I was drowning in the ocean and I couldn’t see any light above the water! I didn’t take my decision lightly at all but I knew I didn’t have to stay in this relationship after many years trying to make things work. I changed the outcome for myself and now I am able to be the best me for my family and for myself and others but I had to ask myself the right question first.

Paul & Michael you talked about giving and how giving gives you so much more back. I have always enjoyed giving more than receiving! Before COVID I was a volunteer at a faith based treatment center for women who are exiting sex trafficking and the people thanked me but I thank them because I learned who God really is and I got baptized at the church I attend and it’s because of me volunteering at this center and I learned computer skills so all this gave me back so much more than I could’ve imagined! Giving is a beautiful experience and it will make someone’s day / week or maybe even give them hope again.

I love hearing the stories of others because I always try to find what can I learn from others. I have always believed that it’s never too late to learn and to evolve!! I always ask myself what can I do to be better for my family and for myself / others than yesterday so every day I ask myself that question because I learn from yesterday!

Michael & Paul thank you for the phenomenal podcast and I have subscribed to Peak Mind podcast and this the first podcast that I’ve subscribed to and it will be the only one because I’ve learned so much and it’s been good healthy food for my brain and it’s been rewarding too!! We need to ask ourselves the right questions, our brain is so powerful, retrain our brain is important but also believing what we’re retraining our brain with and I mean truly believe it and feel what you believe, apply what you say for an example I have taught my son what you say needs to match up with your actions for an example if you don’t like your eating habits than buy healthy foods but also apply by eating the healthy foods and stick with it so I believe applying what you learn and say.

I can’t wait to hear the next podcast and again I thank you for your podcast and your time Michael and Paul!!!!

God bless and thank you 🙏🏻

Authentic and enlightening

I have been listening to Michael Trainer for the past 6 months or so and continue to find his interviews so enlightening with thought provoking insights. He is a genuine and caring soul who is not afraid to get a little vulnerable at times. He brings highly respected and top notch individuals in their own right to share their wisdom, which I have in turn put into practice in my own life, helping to make me and the people around me all around better. Thanks, Michael, for how you show up in this world.
