Reid Peterson has felt how
stories can be powerful to uplift, teach, give you more
meaning and depth- of what someone goes through, to provide more
hope, inspiration, and support in your own life. He is the host
Changing Stories podcast and goes deep into the stories
that changed people's lives and what they took from the
experience. He was deeply inspired by the Chicken Soup For
The Soul series of
books that were immensely popular in the late 90’s. The stories
were very touching. Being a person who learns from experience and
enjoying the art of storytelling, the idea for Life Changing
to him when he was in a dark place
We talk about the inception
of the podcast as well as hearing many great stories and diving
further into them. We talk about how stories can help bring you out
of a dark place and bring meaning to things. He also shares his
travel experiences across Australia and what he was
expecting to get from that. Finally, he shares some good tips
for making a good story.
His joke: "Imagine a 7 yr old asking you when is the best time to
see a dentisit? tooth 30"
Can travel be more than just a fun thing to do? Could it also provide some benefit and learning experiences later in life? I have always thought this and this is why I have relentlessly travelled the world and now have been to over 80 countries. I have always thought that I was planting the seeds of wisdom while in faraway lands. Through experiences with foreign people, cultures, concepts, and ways of doing things I learned much more than anything I could've done while at home. I interview amazing guests, bestselling authors, scientists, successful business people, dating experts, travel junkies, polyglots (people who speak more than 3 languages), and anybody who I think is interesting for the growth of our listeners and I as people. I think by doing this we can plant the seeds of wisdom which will ultimately lead to our success in career, business, money, relationships, self-worth, and generally being a more well-rounded person. But it requires you to be active making this happen. What do you think?
