The Wellness Revolution Podcast with Amber Shaw

TWR 069: Start Taking Radical Ownership of Your Life Now

Are there things that you allow in your life just to get validation from others? This is a question worth asking before listening to today’s episode. In this episode of The Wellness Revolution, Amber talks about this concept of taking ‘radical ownership’ of your choices, your actions, and, therefore, your reality. The things we let present in our routines and daily life will define whom we will become, even if it seems like they won’t.

Avoiding our own wants and needs, not paying attention to our own health, and not prioritizing ourselves on a daily basis are the main factors to get unsatisfied with our lives. Amber explains that in order to change that, we first need to be aware of it and then ask why. Why do we put our names at the bottom of our to-do list? When it comes to fitness/health, the whole idea becomes even more important, right? Tune in!
