Consider this: If you only had six months to live, what would you do?

Without question I know I would be traveling.

But if there were no limits, what would you do?

This is something I always think about because the limits that we have in our lives are only things that we put on ourselves because of some belief.

Anyone who’s listening to a mindset podcast wants to grow.

For growth to happen, we have to be in this state of constantly questioning what we believe to be true.

Because unless we start to radically examine our beliefs, our lives will not change.

We also have to be comfortable with the fact that things happen as they’re supposed to.

And that means giving up our sense of control.

Nothing is set in stone.

The only thing that I think is real is gravity.😂

But other than that, everything else is open to interpretation and we can change our story in an instant as long as we’re willing to look at things from a different perspective.

We can change our lives.

In today’s episode of The Launch Your Life Podcast, we talk about how we can make that happen with Rapid Transformational Therapist, Sally Garozzo.

Sally is passionate about innovative approaches to health and wellbeing, which support the midlife transition.

During the podcast we talk about how subconscious programming drives our lives and our behavior PLUS:

Deconstructing the past
Why it’s so hard to create lasting change
Why Sally takes a five minute dip into the English winter sea a few times every week

She also gives us some practical tips on creating a sustainable sleep routine, so stay until the end of the episode.
