This series brings to you the most thought-provoking excerpts from my chat sessions with visionary personalities, as recorded for the Slingshot Living radio show. The conversations reveal valuable wisdom, playful anecdotes and useful advice on how to continuously overstep perceived boundaries for success in your business and your personal life. This segment features an excerpt from my chat with with Kris Carr, New York Times best-selling author and wellness warrior.
Gabor: A major theme of your inspirational journey is this idea of championing empowerment over illness. How can you transfer this insight and self confidence to others who have not gone through such a transformative experience?
Kris: That’s a really great question! I think each and every one of us has a goal, has a dream, has a vision. Even if you don’t know what the vision is, it’s there. The best way to find it or reinforce it is to get quiet and to get still and do the fearless inventory and get clear about what you want in life. And I think with that clarity comes purpose. For some people it may be helping folks to stay well, be well, feel well—that’s certainly my life’s purpose. But it doesn’t have to be big and grandiose. It could be that my life’s purpose is to have joy, spring in my step, peace in my heart and to make nice meals for my family. We all have something that we would like to go deeper into and I think it’s impossible to suck the juice out of this life if you feel disempowered. For me part of that journey first and foremost was to heal that piece and go forward.
