What’s clear from my conversation with Vernon Foster II is that living a fulfilling life is a lifelong journey. There is no silver bullet or magic pill. Through Vernon’s own personal hardship, and working closely with others, he’s put together all that he has learnt in ‘The 7 Laws of Mindful Living: A Soul Manual’.
I first met Vernon a few years ago at the Podcast Movement, so I couldn’t wait to learn more about this latest book. Join our reflective discussion as we spoke about Vernon’s ‘laws’ of mindful living, the power of taking a break, overcoming limiting beliefs, how to not get caught up in the doing – and a potential 8th Law…
- The Law of Letting Go
- Limiting identities
- The art of embracing experiences
- Removing judgement
- The Law of Abundance
- The impact of releasing ‘The 7 Laws of Mindful Living: A Soul Manual’
- Overcoming overwhelm with where to start
