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.
Today’s segment features an excerpt from my inspirational chat with Danielle LaPorte, creator of white hot truth, labelled "the best place on-line for kick-ass spirituality."
Gabor: What assumptions do you most like to challenge, and what limitations do you like to encourage others to overstep?
Danielle: I like to challenge all assumptions. My approach is a very holistic and “spiritual” perspective of things. And that is the very perspective that I myself need to challenge. It’s all the New Age-isms: Do we really create our reality? Did I get cancer because I didn’t work out my mother issues? The Law of Attraction—can I think myself into something that’s ideal? On one level I believe all those things, but I also believe that beliefs themselves are potential obstacles. You need to look at why you believe what you believe. Was it something that was implanted in you in Sunday school? Does it work for you because if you believe in something different you’d be rocking the boat with your family? Or does this [belief] really fit with the shape of your soul? I think everybody needs to examine the source of their beliefs and then to consciously choose them. You have to commit to them as an adult—as a wide awake person.
