Guest: Andy Petranek is a life and leadership coach and works with successful executives, leaders, and entrepreneurs who are stuck. He opened the first CrossFit gym in Los Angeles and co-founded the Whole Life Challenge’s wildly popular online social health game. He is funny, authentic, and not afraid to show vulnerability. His story of attachment to success and the burnout that can follow is relatable.
Episode in Tweet: How to show up with fresh eyes, use change, and take small steps to transform your situation, create opportunities, and live a life you love.
Quick Background: Andy and I talk about the value of having a learner’s mindset and going from “knowing” to “not knowing”. As he states it, “gaining mastery of the beginner’s mind!” He shares how embracing change can lead to breakthroughs…even in the toughest of times. And interestingly, we are related and share similar experiences as we have looked to our absent fathers for acceptance and attention.
