Welcome to the Retirement Rebellion podcast. This series is essential listening for anyone questioning the traditional concept of retirement. Tune in to George’s insightful news and views on topics that inspire retiring baby-boomers and help them discover how to live a life of purpose, passion, and potential.
Episode 6: Ken Robinson
Ken Robinson is a British author, speaker and international advisor on education to government, non-profits, education and arts bodies. In his book, Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything, Robinson considers the child bored in class, the disillusioned employee and those of us who feel frustrated but can’t quite explain why: and shows how we all need to reach our ‘Element’, the point at which natural talent meets personal passion.
In this month’s podcast, I cover a large part of the book in more detail, and consider how Robinson’s ideas can be used at retirement age.
Episode 5: Eckhart Tolle
In 2008, The New York Times described Eckhart Tolle as “the most popular spiritual author in the United States”. In his book, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment, Tolle demonstrates how to live a healthier, happier, mindful life by living in the present moment.
In this month’s podcast, I cover the entire book in more detail, and consider how Tolle’s ideas can help us to lead a life of passion and purpose at retirement age.
Episode 4: Brené Brown
This month, I’m looking at Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead by Brené Brown’s, a research professor at the University of Houston. She has spent the last two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame and empathy.
In Daring Greatly, Brown offers a transformative new vision for the way we lead, love, work, parent, and educate – that teaches us the power of vulnerability. In this podcast, I cover the entire book in more detail, and consider how Brown’s ideas can make a difference to us in later life.
Episode 3: Dr Joe Dispenza
In this episode, George takes a look at Dr Joe Dispenza’s book Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself: How to lose your mind and create a new one.
In his book, Dr Dispenza provides an entertaining and highly accessible manual for rewiring our mental and emotional circuitry, which offers a simple but potent message: what we think today determines how you live tomorrow.
Episode 2: Bruce Lipton
In this second episode, George delves into Dr Bruce Lipton’s The Biology of Belief.
Dr Bruce Lipton is a renowned cell biologist by training who taught cell biology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and later performed pioneering studies at Stanford University School of Medicine.
George covers seven ideas from Dr Lipton’s book and, with reflection, applies his thinking to how that impacts on life after retirement.
Episode 1: James Allen
In this first episode, George delves into James Allen’s As a Man Thinketh, which was published in 1903.
Allen explains how our thinking can affect change, and impact on our circumstances, our health, our purpose, our achievements, and our vision and ideals. George asks probing questions on how thinking impacts on retirement.
