EP 032 - Quadruple Amputee Alex Lewis: Finding Your Way Out of Hell—and Thriving
“I was told early on that with amputation 95% is mental and 5% is physical. If you get your head straight, the rest will follow.” - Alex Lewis There are people in this world who just blow your socks off with their courage and strength despite the massive adversities they had to go through. Alex Lewis, our guest in this interview, is one of those people. Before Alex lost his limbs and his lips, he was—as he describes himself—just a regular guy, with a partner and a two-year-old son, who ran a restaurant and who was primarily a stay-at-home dad. All this, however, changed in November 2013 when he fell ill. If you’d like to engage more with this interview, you can also watch the videotaped version on our YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/wW5PIqnc2II Some of the Questions: What happened in November 2013 when you thought you only had a common cold? What did those days seem like and when did you know something was not right? Is there something you would say to the “old you” (the one with limbs) that you feel could have helped you to live a better life? I read somewhere that you really liked the book Man's Search for Meaning by Víctor Frankl. What parts of the book spoke to you the most? What You Will Learn from this Episode: When and why Alex decided to fight and not remain a victim How he has learned to accept the changes that had happened to his body and to feel okay with them Why Alex received a personal invitation from Chris Martin, the lead singer of Coldplay Show notes for this episode with all the resources and ways to connect with Alex: https://theipsproject.com/2022/09/how-to-find-your-way-out-of-hell-alex-lewis/ _______  The IPS Academy   If you feel that you’ve gained some insights and lessons from this interview, and you are curious to see what else we offer at The IPS Project, check out The IPS Academy, where we offer online courses taught by guests here on The IPS Podcast.   Learn more about essential life topics, such as mental health, relationships, the mind, and the body and the brain, through fun and interactive courses.  Simply go to TheIPSProject.com/academy.   What is also interesting to note is that all the courses are quite affordable, as we at The IPS Project do not want money to stand in the way of bettering one's life.   Each course has a few lessons to try for free, so you get a taste of what the course is like.

EP 002 - Bruce Langford: How to Take Control Over The Mind And Live In The Moment
"Be who you are because there is no one else on this earth or ever will be, who is exactly like you." - Bruce Langford As the philosopher, Lao Tzu said, "If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present." We allow ourselves to dwell in the past and worry about the future more often throughout the day than most of us are even aware of. The mind is a busy place, and that voice that every single one of us has in our heads, causes confusion, unhappiness, depression, and anxiety - all because we are not aware of it, and are being controlled by it. Bruce Langford, a former teacher, and now a Life Coach and host of the Mindfulness Mode podcast, teaches people to take control of their own minds through mindfulness - living in the here and now.
