I take great pleasure in composing these weekly Feature Articles of my showcased radio/podcast guests on Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald. It is another opportunity in which to further process and reflect upon the yumminess, which personally resonates for me as the show host, and all as a direct result of my global guests, who generously continue to impart their words of wisdom, life experiences, and thought-provoking perspectives! The profoundness of what I continue to learn, both personally and professionally, is immeasurable and invaluable!
It was an honour and a privilege to re-showcase another one of my amazing mentoring/coaching clients last week. The momentous growth from the initial interview as compared to now in real time, and for what I am privy to and have bore witness to behind the scenes of working in tandem with my clients – always guarantees them, a ‘must have’ second, follow up interview, so that when they play it back for themselves afterwards – they can then appreciate and recognize the trajectory of their own hard work, matched with their own deserved success. Results don’t lie!
What was not discussed on radio with recent guest and mentoring client, Craig Dubecki, but does however, certainly deserve mentioning here, is that even in-spite of him having recently buried his brother and being overwhelmed with all the obvious emotions which would accompany such a loss – Craig has continued to show up. Craig has CHOSEN to show up for the pro-activeness of his own health and well-being. Craig has CHOSEN to show up in the ongoing honouring of his commitments and stringent deadlines. Craig has CHOSEN to continue taking actionable steps to propel him in the forward-facing direction of achieving and accomplishing his already pre-established goals and intention-setting. Craig CHOSE to show up for myself and the Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald loyal listeners and podcast subscribers. You can listen to the full interview here:
This is the attitude and the mindset of a WINNER, and of a person who is integral with both their words and their actions! Thank you, Craig! Effort and consistency never goes unnoticed by me. It is either present or it is absent. Thank you for being present, Craig and for conducting yourself as such! Much appreciated our friend!
How does one measure the barometer of not only their inner growth but also the depth and breadth of their level of self-awareness? How does one actually know to what degree they have truly evolved? I believe the more substantive proof and meaningful truths rest not in the external accomplishments, accolades, titles, and so forth as much as it does with ones own quality of inner peace and personal fulfillment. Someone who feels comfortable in their own skin. Someone who is fiercely protective and nurturing of their own soul, thoughts, beliefs, and feelings knowing that working on cultivating a healthy and solid relationship with oneself – sets the tone and lays the foundation for every other relationship in ones own life. With this, comes boundaries and core values. With this, can also come isolation.
Craig spoke extremely candidly and vulnerably about his battle with depression; suicidal ideation. Craig delved into his once upon-a-time challenges with eye-teaming/visionary problems, which had initially created an aversion for reading. Fast forward to now – Craig has connected the dots on all of it by embracing the life-lessons and gifts, which have transcended into Craig becoming an uplifter, an author, (many times over) and a lover of life and humanity! There is no coincidence to this…Craig did and continues to do…the inner work!
For all the innumerable ways, Craig, continues to be a beacon of light and inspiration to himself and to others, (myself included) I wish to personally and professionally thank you our friend! Some people only dream about the idea of becoming a ROCKSTAR, and then are people like Craig, who do in fact manifest it!
I highly encourage the #ThriveGlobal Community to become further acquainted with Craig and on a more personable level outside of simply reading about him in this Feature Article or in simply listening to our podcast interview. People who can and who have successfully navigated and maneuvered themselves out of the abyss, which we all can relate to for one circumstance, reason, event or another – are more genuinely apt and inclined to know how to also assist and support others in doing the same. These are the people, like Craig, who have walked their talk. These are the people, like Craig, who are the walking, talking, breathing example of how to effectively do so, and do so consistently, so as to positively enrich and enhance the quality of ones own life, and the life of others! It is a WIN WIN scenario and it IS the gift, which keeps on giving! You can connect with Craig at: https://dotsdoconnect.com/
Uplifting You To Fear Less And To Live More!
Be your own Hero. Be your own Shero.
Be your own Leader. Be your own Best Friend!
Love & Gratitude ~ Lisa
