He also shares some powerful insights in our conversation, which you can watch above.
Interview with Michael Dash, the CEO of FATE – From Addict To Entrepreneur .
The following is the pre-interview with Michael Dash. Be sure to watch the recorded interview above.
Tip 1: Do not make emotional decisions in business or your personal life. Emotional reactions cause frustration for both parties involved and usually involve an outpouring of negative energy. This usually leads to an uncomfortable conversation that needs to take place after the fact to heal any hurt feelings and ends up being a complete drain of time.
Tip 2: Change is actually easy. Too often people equate change to the result they are expecting from change but these two ideas actually have no correlation. Anyone who wants to change any behavior can easily do it today. If they tie themselves to the result of the change they may hold themselves back from taking that first step of action. You can build a plan to achieve the results you want along the way and do not need to wait for that to make the actual change right now.
Tip 3: Explore your positive curiosity and try new activities that can bring fulfillment into your lives. Sometimes we form opinions about certain activities or groups of people in life and we then incorporate those opinions as our own without even giving certain things a chance. Activities like yoga, meditation, sound baths, breath-work we may all have heard one thing or another about but until you actually try them out you will not know if they resonate with you and can help you achieve a fulfilled life.
