hi I’m Suzana Kalcic and welcome to life in practice podcast so what’s this all about well there are two ideas behind the word practice I’m the first one is about what we put into practice consistently as what we’ll create our results and the second one is about putting our values into practice the reason why I wanted to explore these themes is I found that in most conversations on personal development people tend to focus more on on wanting to find out what’s the hi what’s the quick fix or what’s a short cut to achieve a certain results but as you delve deeper into people’s journeys what you’ll find that it’s not the quick fixes that led to their success but rather is what they’ve had to put into practice consistently over a long period of time so that’s why I think this is where the gem of wisdom is to be found and instead of asking my guests about the short cut I want to know what they’ve had to put into practice consistently in order to overcome their challenges and to attain success and putting our values into practice I think is key to creating more meaning and fulfillment sometimes I think is a neglected topic and personal development where there seems to be more of a dominance on how to achieve a certain goal are how to attain a milestone off success what was the point off from achieving a goal for not also working on our character and using our values and principles and that which is life affirming to guide us rather than just our own selfish desires and we have beautiful principles like integrity compassion courage justice love and if we don’t put these into practice they’ll just remain as these theoretical concepts and not part of our lived experience so to make the real we need to put them into practice and I want to explore how we can do that in our everyday lives so I asked my guests what do they value most and how do they put it into practice and another inspiration behind the podcast is not I’m a person who stutters and for a long time many many years this is something that’s held me back a lot and they gave me a very limited perspective on my own capabilities and I was clouded in shame and anxiety at having difficulty in expressing myself so I know what it’s like to feel like you’re in a dark place around that and I hope that this will be a beacon of light for anyone who’s going through the same thing and believe me if I can do it you can definitely do it soon and what I found that what helped me a lot was listening to podcasts and hearing people’s stories and experiences I felt a lot less alone and they gave me inspiration and encouragement to keep going and I’d like to do the same for I like to do the same for others to and create a platform as more than ever it’s vital we stay connected to each other an inspiring to other with our stories and what we have learned and most importantly perhaps is to remind us that we’re not alone on this journey so join me on the podcast as my guests share their challenges their successes and what it means to put our purpose our values and our lives in practice subscribe on YouTube or anywhere you listen to podcasts and I’ll catch you in the next episode
