#27 | Polly McGee | The Hustle Is In The Being | Just Be You Podcast with Amber Hawken
Stop doing & start being – the paradox of success
I think I may have found one of my favourite humans on the planet. Yep, author of The Good Hustle, Polly McGee is a walking paradox from the get-go. A tattoo-covered yogi who works in the corporate world, this woman has a story that I’m beyond excited to share with you today.
Here’s why I know you will love this interview. We discuss:
The importance of serving others
Why she rejects the idea of ‘fake it til you make it’
Why success is about the collective, not the individual
The quickest way to lose the moment you’re in
Why you don’t need to become a better version of yourself
The core wounds we all have & the real illusion of them
Rejecting the expectations of the corporate world(especially suits!)
Happiness isn’t the end goal… it’s something else
Polly’s personal practices for mental discipline
What Polly would like to have as a superpower
And so. much. more…
Be It Till You Are It
Whoa. Wasn’t that awesome? Told you I found my twin flame. Polly is that passionate about the life-changing magic of meditation practice, that she is offering a copy of her brand spankin’ new book, The Good Hustle, to TWO of my beloved listeners (one audio book & one physical book if you’re old school like that).
Entering is simple: tell me WHAT your 365-day meditation commitment is + why you’re doing it by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember to also note which book you’d prefer: audio or physical. Giveaway closes Sunday 31 March.
FEEL FREE: Cultivate the Skill of Emotional Regulation and Release
This practice is one of the most underestimated of all foundational practices when it comes to personal power because it teaches you that you can actually handle your own feelings. It will support you to cultivate the art of staying with rather than running from feeling and sensation. It's emotional black belt kinda’ stuff.
