Childhood. It's a uniquely special time when anything is possible; when we could get lost in the moment and live life to the fullest. However, somewhere around the age of 5 or 6, we begin to lose these wonderful traits and start becoming self-conscious and aware of the thoughts and feelings of others. Why is this? And what would the child within us make of the person we've become?
In this episode, Pete helps us to dive back into our past to uncover the forgotten memories of what really made us feel alive. Taking this a step further, Pete asks us to question what we wanted to be when we grew up and what the reasons were for this. For many of us, we wanted to give to the world by helping and inspiring others and Pete outlines the consequences that emerge when we don't live up to the inner child's dreams.
As part of this episode, Pete shares with us the powerful 'Message in a Bottle' and 'Strength and Character Finder' (by Dr Martin Seligman) tools to help determine what we value most. Together, this episode is the perfect reminder that a great life doesn't happen by chance, but happens only by design.
What did you want to be as a child? What would the message in your bottle say? Share with us what you've learnt from this episode in the comments below!
