This is episode 9 and today I’m talking with Nick Laurence who is working on a project called mindfulness for change. Mindfulness is a bit of a buzzword at the moment and I’m interested in figuring out just how much I’m capable of because I’m pretty sure that I hold myself back quite often. This might be consciously or unconsciously. Mindfulness is a tool that I’m trying to use to be more aware of the times that I am holding myself back and to allow me figure out how to address that. Nick and I talk through some of its other benefits of mindfulness as well and why Nick believes that we should all build our mindfulness muscles.

We talk through;

Building mindfulness and meditation as a skill like kicking a soccer ball

Getting busy with stuff that isn’t really that important to us.

We’re actually in control of our minds and we don’t always have to respond the way we have always responded.

Delving into the why I am doing this.

Becoming domesticated humans

The more you stay in your comfort zone the further away your dreams get

Failure is only a mental construct
