Sesil invites us into an incredible discussion on:
- Facing challenge and change
- Ability to adapt and grow
- Passion to create safety and love environments
- The polarity of extremes and how this can influence life
- The internal power to create inner safety and love and then transfer that to your interconnectedness with others
- Thriving = mindset despite circumstances
- Mindsets of scarcity, abundance, growth, fixed which sits between the emotion and the thoughts – here is where we shift HOW we show up
- Everything begins and ends with self AND we are also social
- Learning to stand on your own is important than being able to be social as a contributor to the whole
- Corrupt-ness of education; competition and grading and being compared to, leads to workplaces that stack rank and pit each other against one another = scarcity mindset which negatively impacts creativity and resourcefulness and wellbeing
- By virtue of relating and caring we connect and THEN influence
