In this episode, I’m reaching into the archives to revisit one of my favorite conversations.
I sit down with James Williams, a certified high performance coach and business partner in I Heart My Life with his wife Emily Williams. Listen in as we discuss the relationship-oriented story of how our interview came to be and get into the mindset one needs to adopt in order to do their best work.
- How James found his “chapter 2” after working for 12 years in television production
- How he realized where his motivation was actually coming from (and it wasn’t from the place you think)
- What James discovered during that time that caused a monumental shift, not only in his business but in his personal life as well (and how it relates to misdirection we encounter when finding happiness)
- James’ story of his own experience with the “giver’s fix” and how he was able to shift the way he thought about giving
- How reconnecting with his ten-year old self helps him today when challenges arrive
- The talisman he uses to deal with his recovery from the giver’s fix
- The one thing you need to make the knowledge you acquire actually stick
- The relationship between entrepreneur and money (when it comes to receiving value)
- The real deal with guilt when it comes to service
- How to go into the world curious and without judgment (rather than being trapped by our own lens after having had bad experiences)
- What resentment really leads to
- The relationship between our expectations and reality when it comes to giving
- The truth about recovery when it comes to the giver’s fix, resentment, and judgment
- What to do when we recognize an area of growth (and what we need to do next)
- And much more!
