Andrea Pennington – Popular physician and medical journalist
I am obsessed with transformation, specifically how dreams in the head and heart are transformed into physical reality.
For the last two decades, I have reverse-engineered peak performance behavior and hacked motivation to empower people, to transform their lives and their business in honor of their dreams and passions.
So whether it’s starting a new business or relationship to building a better brain or body, how many of you out there feel that you have the potential to do something great in life? All right.
Well, Marianne Williamson once said, “If you feel like you’re wasting your life’s potential, you are.” The truth is you have far more power over your physical well-being and your impact in life than you give yourself credit for.
Now, over the last several years as a documentary filmmaker, I have immersed myself in cultures around the world to see what it takes to really thrive and flourish. What I noticed is, in many cultures like in the Western world, when we set out in life, most of us are programmed to fit into social norms.
