Do you need a wake up call?
Welcome to the third episode of our Noteworthy Series, where we highlight an article that we think warrants your attention and host a conversation with a relevant guest.
Today’s article is The Power of Wakeup Calls by Gregg Levoy (Psychology Today – July 2017).
Our guest is Richard Losciale, who experienced his own personal wakeup call that changed the way he lived his life – from being focused on the aspirational to being focused on the inspirational. As Rich listened to his inner little voice, he worked hard to recover from being near death and transformed his life by shifting his mindset to his higher purpose and developed a stronger sense of who he is. His company, Neo-Seniors Services LLC, focuses on improving the well-being and mindfulness of those who are looking to optimize their senior years and live better lives.
On Listening to The Inner Voice
“If you hear the little voice inside you, that’s really your big voice. That’s the voice you have to listen to. That’s what we don’t need a vacation from and that should be our guiding monitor in life. That is the spiritual voice inside all of us. I do believe we’re spirits having physical experiences and not the other way around. If we listen to that intuitive spiritual voice inside of us, however quiet it is … It’s a noisy world. Sometimes we can’t hear it anymore for all the tick-tock that’s out there. We’ll be in better shape collectively, individually, as a tribe, as a species, as a nation and as a global community.”
“I really try to balance the inspirational with the transfer of knowledge and to help people break out of old habits. Mark Twain had one thing that he said amongst many wise things. That you cannot throw bad habits down the stairs. You have to walk them down step by step. That’s what I try to help people do. Identify the bad habits and then recognize they can’t just jettison them, they have to walk them away slowly and that it takes practice, commitment, self-trust and the help of others around them. So we’re all in this together.”
