Lighting Up Our Lives and Work with Cathy & Gary Hawk

If there is a line in our life, above which we feel enliven and energized and below which we feel drained and exhausted, where would you want to live? The Hawks share practical advice to help us live a more vibrant life in work and relationships and to create the life you truly want. In order to be more effective in our lives we must understand the three energy fields in which we live. The Hawks also encourage us to have “strategic allies” and describe the process of “peer coaching”. They tell us, “We are all going to have moments where we are blinded by our own dark sides so we need strategic allies… All of us can get caught up and lose track of our dream.” It is important to “have someone around who stays open to what lights us up, who knows what it is that we are energized by, someone who is there to remind us of that when we are in the midst of that monkey mind of ‘I can’t do this.’”  (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)

    Heard your interview with the Hawks this morning while vacationing on Molokai. It was fascinating and I plan to purchase their book. It is serendipitous that I woke up thinking about what switches on my light!
