How To Reinvent Yourself: Peter Sage
“There’s a big difference in following your passion and following your potential. Following your passion is a comfort zone in which you feel good because there is no challenge. Following your potential will require you to leave that comfort zone in order to realize that potential.” – Peter Sage
Are you living up to your full potential and growing or are you staying in the comfort zone by pursuing your passions?
In Wellness + Wisdom episode 245, International Speaker, Entrepreneur, and Author of The Inside Track, Peter Sage, teaches us how to apply the skill of surrendering through different levels of consciousness, why we should be following our potential rather than our passion, and why our biggest fear that we're not enough is due to the false belief that our self-worth is tied to our net worth.
Discover the process of re-contextualizing negative thoughts when your outer world doesn't fit your inner world.

“An entrepreneur is simply being independent. Do you rely on something or someone else in order to get what you need to move forward or are you able to create that on your own? That's the essence of an entrepreneur whether you're a parent, mother, or a business owner.” – Peter Sage
“Depending on where your progress is at, the word, “surrender” will come into play at different levels of meaning. If you're in a lower vibrational aspect or state of consciousness, you're going to hear the word, “surrender” from a place of acquiesce or giving up and being dominated. If you're coming from a place of power and you're swimming with the river of life rather than against it, then you can come from a place of surrendering in which you're allowing for yourself to be taken from something that's greater than you because you're putting your trust in the universe or whatever you believe in.” – Peter Sage
“The biggest challenge with money when it comes to the frustration and feeling wounded by it can be narrowed down to one false belief that our net worth is tied to our self-worth because the greatest fear we have as human beings is that we're not enough. Money is nothing more than a way that we perceive value. Most people will compromise their values around money faster than anything else to avoid the fear that they're not enough.” – Peter Sage
