Show Notes Chapter Markers

As we round out the year 2022 with Episode 18 Arthi invites guest Andrew Tallents to share his journey of designing his life so that it may inspire your own planning for 2023 and beyond. 

Having grown up in very modest circumstances, Andrew learned about putting in hard work in order to achieve success. At age 15 he took on the responsibility of the household, which brought out feelings of loyalty and duty, as well as resentment for missing out on childhood. As a result of this, behaviours played out for Andrew in his adult life where key relationships suffered because of the need to achieve. This went on for about 30 years until 6 years ago he was enlightened about coaching and what it could do for others. Due to Andrews natural disposition to assist and support others, this necessitated a shift for him to design his life away from doing, to being, and to, of course, enable others to do so too. 

Some wise words from Andrew:

  • "Stop, and reflect, and just ask the question around who am I really being, right now”
  • "to go from doing to being you need to create some space in your life and ask yourself what you would actually like your life to be like”
  • “When we try to change but we cant, just be kind to ourselves”

Listen in to the full episode for so much more insights and ideas offered by my wonderful guest.
