Welcome to episode 40 of the Mindful & Driven podcast! It's all about how to not lose sight of what really matters whilst chasing your dreams.Episode 40’s guest is Brian Pennie. He’s an author, speaker, lecturer, and life-change strategist. Brian was a heroin addict and this led to massive health problems. He technically died several times at a hospital but he turned his life around. He got himself cleaned, studied for a Ph.D. in neuroscience to understand how the brain works and why is anxiety making him prone to this addiction? He’s enjoyed it so much. He’s lectured and is an expert in the subject now. What’s fantastic about his experience is that he has experienced it personally and he has the science to back it up too which gives it a unique perspective that can make a difference in how people think so they can challenge their anxiety and what’s happening in their own mind. His book titled "Bonus Time" dives into his fascinating stories in more detail and I really recommend it.Topics discussed in this episode:How to bring real change in your life. Why real change takes time. How to set yourself up for positive sustainable change. How to prioritize the aspects of your life that you should work on. Why it's important to take baby steps.
