Ep 918: Bridgit Dengel Gaspard: How to Overcome Missing a Goal
On this episode of Ten Minute Mindset Bridgit Dengel Gaspard shares how her book unravels the mystery of why so many high achieving individuals stall just inside the finish line. Mario and Bridgit discuss understanding the why behind our decisions and how to release the guilt and blame that comes with getting close to a goal and not quite making it.
Known originally as Puck’s child, Bridgit Dengel Gaspard was born in Stratford, Ontario, Canada where her father was acting in Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Shakespeare Festival. Following in his poulaines, she pursued dance, acting and comedy. Her astute observations, particularly of unspoken dynamics between people, her sensitivity to micro and macro injustices, her sense of style and her love of opposites fueled her philosophy of life. In her pursuit to engage her creativity, she stumbled upon improvization – both movement and performance based. She also discovered Voice Dialogue, a simple, yet powerful technique of listening and communicating with our Inner Selves. This was developed by the Drs. Sidra and Hal Stone with whom Bridgit trained and became her mentors. The more she witnessed its restorative power for all kinds of people (including herself), the more she concentrated on the process of healing. Her fascination led to earning an MSW from Columbia University and acquiring clinical experience in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). In 2005 she founded The New York Voice Dialogue Institute, offering professional trainings approved for Continuing Education Credits.
