A lot of things happen in our lives that drive our emotions and thoughts. Our actions are induced by this, whether we run away from it or lean into faith and trust. The ability to look at things objectively, pondering why things happen to us and not to others.

It is true that one thing can mean different things to different people, but when you truly know what you need, you make decisions from a place of empowerment.

We act based on our emotions, and if they are not mastered, things can get out of control. To walk the path to freedom and peace, we need the help and support of mentors and coaches. Not to mention the tools needed for self-mastery.

Gavin McHale is a personality development coach who helps high performers live a more conscious and impactful life.

In this episode, Gavin shares his experience numbing everything away with alcohol. Instead of facing the problem head-on, he went farther away from it, looking for short-term solutions that dragged him more into the pit of desperation.

The same thing happened when he had to face challenges in his business. When he realized he wouldn’t settle for less than what he set out to achieve, he acknowledged the problem, looked for the solution, and reached out to people he knew to have his best interest at hand. And that made him expand his life from a place of love and commitment.

“This is what matters in life; living a better life is becoming aware of your patterns, becoming more conscious, and then truly making an intentional decision to change them.”
