This is as much a bookmark page for my own reference as anything else. It will help to counter the frequent claim that “Everyone can thrive on a vegan diet.” My intention is not to bash anyone for their life choice, but to show up that universal claim as untrue.
I’m sure that some people do okay on a whole plant-based diet, at least for a while. Some may even thrive! But I’ve been coming across too many testimonies from people who’ve felt literally driven by their own bodies to go back to a more natural omnivore diet that they cannot all be dismissed as just being bad or failed vegans.
After all, if a vegan diet were natural for homo sapiens, it ought to be really difficult to mess it up, even in the long term! More…
Here’s the final week of free videos for “The Path Program” where we start to put one foot in front of the other on the Path you choose for yourself.
What does success mean to you? You don’t have to use anyone else’s measure. Choose your own!
Turn your big goal into smaller, manageable steps, and put a timescale on them. What resources can we call on?
What do you need in order to walk your Path? What will help you? Which resources do you have access to now? Which do you not now?
Who can best help you take the next steps on your path right now? Contact them! Be okay with “no”.
What kind of team could help you along the way? Build it.
What will help you keep taking the steps forward? What support would you like to have? Set it up.
What do you need to get go of? Whose permission don’t you need? JFDI.
And here’s the wonderfully inspiring video of Pavi Mehta’s talk.
The videos for week three of “The Path Program” — a short course designed to help you get what you want most in life (really want most).
In this week we move into some serious head-work, clearing out the bullshit that keeps you standing in your own way.
Go through your list of reasons why you’re not enjoying your Path right now. Which ones are REAL?
Go through a list of stuff and mark it Right or Wrong. Then consider there is NO absolute right / wrong??
What’s the worst that could happen? Literally, write it down.
Write down all your responsibilities. Then go through and either choose each one or not. Be clear about the nature and limits of the resp. you choose.
Is it true / false / unknown? What do you choose to do with those false or unknown constraints? Is it powerful to use your Word to embrace your real constraints??
Freeing yourself from the fruit of the tree enables you to choose with power.
Pick a few things you can do in the next week.
Here’s week two of four of “The Path Program”, which I’m making available for free. Why? Simply because I want you to have it, and I don’t want any reason for you to say no.
Don’t watch these unless you’ve already worked through Week One.
Thread: Write down the times in your life where your Path has poked through (like a thread through cloth). What is it about those things? What is the thread?
Describe the world you would like to see. (No one is right or wrong. The world you live in is the world you choose to live in.)
YOU get to choose. Write six words that are meaningful to you. (Or you may choose a different number.) “X is important to me, because I say X is important to me.”
What represents survival > security > comfort > ease > luxury? What do you choose to earn?
How does your vision involve others? Who needs to be enrolled in this vision? Who will benefit from it? What’s in it for them?
Just pick one thing that you can BE right now, in this moment. Practice being the master of WHO YOU ARE.
List all the reasons why you haven’t got the life you would like right now.
In the summer of 2016, I got together with a couple of other coaches or facilitators to put on a course on “whatever you most want in life” and called it “The Path Program”.
We ran the course for four weeks, and I made one short video per day over that time, building from some basic principles through to putting your big plan for your life into action.
Now I’m sharing my videos with you for free. I hope you get as much out of this material as I did making it. I certainly discovered a massive amount about what I’m doing here. Enjoy!
And here’s the “Stop It” sketch I refer to.
