“When life is happening to me, I am a victim by design. I am at the mercy of external circumstances that I perceive to be beyond my control. When life is happening for me, I am in the driver seat of my life. Now I have the power to do something. When life is happening through me, I have the sense of being used in the best way, of being put to work in the best way.”
If you’ve been following the podcast for a while, you’ll understand why I love inviting back our guest for this week. He is, to me, a friend, a mentor, a teacher, and an overall amazing human being who just speaks to our audience on so many levels and always is able to leave us with insights that are very useful not only in our roles as leaders, but in life in general.
This week, we bring you Part 1 of a 2-part series that will explore the question “Does Life Happen To Me, For Me, or Through Me?”, which will be followed by Part 2 next week.
ABOUT OUR GUEST
Tommy Rosen is one of the pioneers in the field of yoga and recovery assisting others to holistically transcend addictions of all kinds. As the founder of Recovery 2.0, Tommy authored a book by the same name which has become a best seller in its category. I see it as a modern-day manual for coping with any addictive behavior and for living on a path of discovery.
The R20 community supports that path by providing universal meetings, seminars, coaching, and online courses to help people live their best lives. Membership in R20 is less than $1.00 per day.
Tommy also has a podcast called “In the Circle” available wherever you are listening now. Tommy and his wife, yoga teacher, Kia Miller, live in California, where they teach yoga and grow organic vegetables in their backyard.
