Lets Talk Possibility Episode 13: How to empower your mind

    • We’re talking with Dawid Swart, an expert in change and the mindset needed to embrace change. And Mongezi Mtati, A "wordstarter" and an example of someone who embraces change.

    • As part of our nature, we tend to shy away from change. We resist it, do anything we can to avoid the uncertainty of change. But it is a constant part of life – and in todays world change is happening all the time and at such a fast pace!

    • Your internal life dimension is expressed in your external life dimension

    • What do we mean by MINDSET?

    • So what happens when we learn to work with change, rather than resist and avoid it?

    • When we stop fighting change, and rather use it to our advantage, so much becomes possible.

    • MOVIE-Developing Your Mindsight

      • Mindsight is an enlightening means of understanding ourselves and changing our behaviors, interactions and relationships. Dr. Daniel Siegel explains how developing mindsight can be key to stopping self-limiting patterns in our lives.

Lets Talk Possibility Episode 12: How to adapt improvise and overcome a stroke

  • There are possibilities after experiencing a major physical set back.

    • An entrepreneur, corporate business man, motorbike adventurer and sportsman, George suffered a stroke in his 30’s which not only changed his life, but led him to start the Stroke Survivors Foundation and walk over 2000 kms! How has it impacted his life and relationships?

    • His brother Stefano shares the impact it had on his family

    • George shares about the objectives of the Stroke Survivors Foundation that he co-founded in Feb of 2010
  • BOOK – Lance Armstrong – It's not about the Bike

    • http://www.amazon.com/Its-Not-About-Bike-Journey/dp/0425179613/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1318783638&sr=1-1

    • "...one of the redeeming things about being an athlete – one of the real services we can perform – is to redefine what’s humanly possible. We cause people to reconsider their limits, to see that what looks like a wall may really just be an obstacle in the mind. Illness was not unlike athletic performance in that respect: there is so much we don’t know about our human capacity..." -Lance Armstrong – pg 163

    • George walked after his stroke from Beit Bridge to Cape Point, starting in August 2010 and finished in February 2011 – a total of 2473 kms (averaging 18-20 km per day). Most people think that after a stroke you are confined to a couch if you are lucky. Why did George walk that walk for 6 months, instead of sitting on the coach?

    • How has having survived a stroke, changed the way George sees and embraces his life now?

    • From our perspective, George is a very courageous man. He not only openly talks about his condition and the effects the stroke has had on his personal and work life, but he is also leading out by creating the Foundation, and doing things like walking over 2000 kms to show others that there is another way.
  • "The one thing the illness has convinced me of beyond all doubt – more than any experience I’ve had as an athlete – is that we are much better than we know. We have unrealized capacities that sometimes only emerge in crisis. So if there is a purpose to the suffering that is cancer, I think it must be this: it’s meant to improve us." -Lance Armstrong – pg 273`

    • "I am very firm in my belief that cancer is not a form of death. I choose to redefine it: it is a part of life."-Lance Armstrong – pg 273

    • George, you are an inspiring example to us about what is inside of us, what our potential is and that nothing can really hold us back, unless we let it. What do you believe is possible?

Lets Talk Possibility Episode 10: How dancing will help your relationships

  • Our viewpoint:
There is a time to lead, there is a time to follow and understanding when to fulfill each role has power. Also understanding that both roles are equally important to achieve something great, is vital. Argentine Tango is an art that demonstrates this concept very clearly and shows that when we understand and implement the principles of leadership we can create something great that is much more beautiful than what we can ever do on our own.
  • What is the history of tango and how did it evolve to what it is today?

  • Tango dress sense is quite important, why do the dancers also look smart and have great shoes?

  • What is your definition of leadership? The whole dance is about leading and following and you talk about it alot, so what exactly do you mean by leadership?

    • Lead is not to dominate, follow is not to submit

    • What are the components of a leader and a follower that make it possible for them to create a “great dance”?

      • self awareness - intentions

      • roles, responsibilities

      • switching roles for understanding

      • communication
  • BOOK – David Deida : Intimate Communion
  • VIDEO- Surrender Tango Documentary. See http://youtu.be/uhBtZbtDn6E
    • how successful partnering in tango relates to life- from a documentary

    • Following is passive in a sense, in that it is like listening. But there is active listening, and passive listening

    • Connection is not only to connect to your partner, firstly you need to connect to yourself - be centered

    • You have to be ready to be led

    • http://www.ted.com/talks/ken_robinson_says_schools_kill_creativity.html

    • Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.

    • ‎"Picasso once said this. He said that all children are born artists. The problem is to remain an artist as we grow up. I believe this passionately, that we don't grow into creativity, we grow out of it. Or rather, we are educated out of it" - Ken Robinson, a visionary cultural leader of our times.

    • Is the way we are educating our children today, actually doing them a dis-service?
