020 - Who Do You Want to Be When You Grow Up?
Welcome to The Fully Lived Life podcast! A podcast for those who are longing to pursue the full life and want to break free from anything that holds them back. Listen in as two friends - a psychologist, Dr. Merry and a life coach, Gillian - talk about life, love and purpose - with wisdom, humour and transparency - through the lens of science, psychology, and life experiences.
Tune in to hear how Dr. Merry and Life Coach Gillian answer this question: What kind of life do you want to live out in the “older” version of you? Dr. Merry gets to take on the role of lab rat “Marvin” today to answer this question.
When kids are little, the adults around them ask, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” and then when we retire from the “what” we are asked, “What are you going to do now that the “what” is over?”
But “who” do we want to be? What are the words that describe the “who”? Loving, fun, courageous etc. Research shows that when we have a goal in our minds we live, behave and act in ways that move us closer to our goal.
What legacy will you leave? Can you ask “What impact am I having on my world at each stage of life?” What is the area that you want to grow and develop in your own character?
We get gut honest about this in our lives. One of the goals we live by right now is to be transparent to our listeners so that you can get a glimpse of what is going on in our hearts and minds.
We lead you through some tips to help you think about and craft the older version of you.
Remember, we are cheering you on! We would love to hear what you are thinking - shoot us a message!
