In this episode we talk about putting in proactive internal work, and understanding being uncomfortable and vulnerable from the age of 19 to going through the pandemic for Graham. Part philosopher, part psychologist...Graham unpacks grounding and why it's important, mental skills training and moving minds with music. We talk about what MVP stands for, and why living in the now is key for health. We talk about training the mind, embracing the process and being present - being where your feet are. We explore the language to use for children in relation to mental skills, and why accepting failure and learning from it is integral to be successful. This episode was full of stories and positive energy. Thanks for sending good vibrations Graham!
