“Trust your life force. Trust that there is something bigger than you.”

We talk so much about developing IQ and emotional intelligence, but I think we shy away from conversations about our shared spiritual essence and the search for meaning and purpose. 

Today’s guest opens up the door for us to think about connecting with our spirit, our soul’s essence, and operating with less ego and more soul.

Agapi Stassinopoulos is a best-selling author and speaker who inspires audiences around the world. She aims to help change the way we work and live.

In this episode:

  • Agapi’s journey of spiritual intelligence
  • Accessing your highest self and a higher power
  • Getting more grounded and in tune with your inner self
  • Connecting to your heart and soul rather than just your mind
  • The role of ego in personal growth and relationships
  • And more!

Noteworthy Quotes from This Episode

“You’ve got to do the inner work. If you want the results, you’ve got to put the time, the hours. You’ve got to disconnect.”

“It’s so simple. You don’t need a coach, you don’t need a teacher, you don’t need a therapist. You’ve got your diary, you’ve got your journal, you’ve got your beautiful pens.”

“What is your currency? It doesn’t have to be money. It doesn’t have to be recognition. And for me, my currency is my heart.”

“You cannot open up your heart if you have judgments on yourself; if you think you’re not good enough.”
