Adam Coelho shares his powerful journey to mindfulness and entrepreneurship. He discusses the transformative power of mindfulness and the importance of being aware of the stories we tell ourselves. By becoming more mindful, Adam could recognize his inner critic and critical mindset, which helped him shift his life toward his true calling.
"I realized I created exactly what I asked for. I said I needed to quit Google to be successful. I got what I asked for; they did it for me. They quit me. So, I got what I asked for. It turns out that's not exactly what I asked for, and if it really was, I could have done it at any moment. I could have quit any time. It turns out that wasn't really the goal."
Adam's journey toward entrepreneurship was not easy, but he persevered and found opportunities to pursue his passion. Despite facing challenges, such as trying to make his entrepreneurial mindset fit into a corporate job and being frustrated with his inability to change his role at Google, Adam overcame these obstacles. He created a life that aligned with his values and aspirations. Adam's story highlights the importance of mindfulness, envisioning, and perseverance in pursuing our passions and creating the lives we want. We can create a more fulfilling and purposeful life by becoming more mindful and aware of our inner narratives.
