In the Now #010 – Chantal Russell Podcast Highlights

Our Founder, Steve Rio, shares some of his personal highlights from his recent conversation with Chantal Russell on the podcast.

Here are Steve’s top three highlights:

  1. “Make the habitual ritual” — an amazing expression and reminder that everything you do is important and should be considered part of your spiritual practice. This is such a valuable way to approach your life. Rather than separating your spiritual practices from your work and regular life, approach everything like it’s sacred and give it that level of care and attention. When you do, you realize a new level of richness in even the most mundane activities in your life.
  2. Chantal found out she had cancer the day after she gave birth to her son. This was really hard on her relationship with her husband. They went to the brink and made it back. When I asked Chantal how they rebuilt their relationship, she talked about intention and making a conscious choice every day to be together. The takeaway for me was that we have the ability to choose our partners with our actions, words, and thoughts in every moment we’re together.
  3. After going through cancer and coming out the other side, one of the biggest changes she encountered was a new willingness to say yes to things she wanted to do. While she might have been hesitant in the past, or put things off, she now understands the importance of taking risks and enjoying life to it’s fullest. She also says no to more things as well. You can’t say YES to the things you really want to do without saying NO to many other things that come your way. Both decisions are important if you want to live life to ti’s fullest. It’s about listening to your heart.

The entire podcast was amazing. Listen now!
