Navigating life's ups and downs with grace and poise is a skill that many aspire to, but few have mastered like our guest, Dr. G. In our heartfelt conversation, she delves into the art of maintaining credibility as an emerging leader, emphasizing the significance of a positive mindset. Through candid stories, Dr. G reveals how reframing challenges into opportunities for growth has not just shaped her journey, but also empowered others. She shares the transformative effect of 'stinking thinking' and how stepping beyond it can lead to inspiring those around us. As you listen, you'll find that it's not only about overcoming adversity but about using those experiences to light the way for fellow leaders.
Building a supportive tribe is at the heart of personal and professional growth, and in this episode, Dr. G talks about the value of vulnerability in creating these connections. She walks us through selecting mentors and peers who not only aspire to greatness but also share their struggles, creating deeper bonds and invaluable learning experiences. We tackle the importance of having a personal mantra for success, with Dr. G introducing the concept of 'SOAR' and how it has guided her, especially while balancing leadership roles with personal responsibilities, such as parenting a child with special needs. Embark on this journey with us and discover the strength found in embracing and sharing our own narratives.
Wellness goes beyond diet and exercise; it encompasses self-care and the relationships we nurture. Our conversation with Dr. G takes a turn towards the discipline of sleep, nutrition, and the profound impact of meaningful connections. She opens up about how a background in bodybuilding has shaped her approach to a balanced lifestyle and the importance of self-awareness in reaching one's full potential. Wrapping up the episode, Dr. G shares the touchstone moments from her book that have offered hope and inspiration, particularly to those on the path to sobriety. Tune in for a mix of wisdom and warmth, and remember to extend that kindness to your own journey.
