Welcome back to my podcast series
I’ve had so much wonderful feedback on my podcast series that I wanted to tell you about it again – and give you a chance to listen if you haven’t done so before.
The series explores some of my favourite authors, and the books they’ve written that inspire my work as a ‘retirement rebel’ – challenging the way we live our lives after the age of 50. You can listen to it on Apple Podcasts here.
Episode 1 – James Allen
Kicking off the series I talked about James Allen, a British philosopher born in 1864. He published about 20 books, but As a Man Thinketh is his most popular. I cover seven ideas from his book and, with reflection, apply his thinking to the concept of life after retirement.
Episode 2 – Dr Bruce Lipton
For the second episode, I turn to 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.
His book explores how our knowledge of our bodies and our biology is crucial in understanding how thinking can affect change, and impact on our circumstances, our health, our purpose and our life in general. I find it absolutely fascinating, as you will hear!
Episode 3 – Dr Joe Dizpenza
In my third episode, I delve into Dr Joe Dispenza’s Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself: How to lose your mind and create a new one. Dr Dispenza studied biochemistry with an emphasis on neuro-chemistry at Rutgers University, New Jersey and earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University in Atlanta, Georgia.
I cover eight main ideas from the book, which provides an entertaining and highly accessible manual for rewiring our mental and emotional circuitry, and offers a simple but potent message: what we think today determines how we live tomorrow.
Episode 4 – Brené Brown
Then I move on to another favourite of mine, Brené Brown. Her book Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead has really inspired me and in this next podcast I consider how Brown’s ideas can make a difference to us in later life.
Episode 5 – Eckhart Tolle
Episode five of the series explores Eckhart Tolle’s book, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment, in which Tolle demonstrates how to live a healthier, happier, mindful life by living in the present moment. I consider how his ideas can help us to lead a life of passion and purpose at retirement age.
Episode 6 – Ken Robinson
My final episode is a study of Ken Robinson’s The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything, in which the author suggests that too many people never connect with their true talents and therefore they don’t know what they’re really capable of achieving. In that sense, they don’t know who they truly are. In my podcast, I consider how Robinson’s ideas can be used at retirement age.
I hope you enjoy my podcast series as much as I enjoyed making it. I’d love to hear your feedback so leave a comment below – or alternatively leave a rating or review for my podcasts here.
