Ep153 Transcript: Breaking Patterns – Top Takeaways from Jolene Park
Andrea Vahl: Is there an unhealthy area of your life that you would like to change? Maybe it’s exercise, maybe it’s diet, maybe it’s how much alcohol you consume. In episode 152, I talked to Jolene Park, who realized that her alcohol consumption wasn’t where she wanted it to be. Tune into my top takeaways.
Intro: Hello, dreamers. Welcome to the late starters club, giving you the inspiration, mindset, and tools you need to start something midlife and beyond remember, it’s never too late to follow your dreams.
Andrea Vahl: So what I love about what Jolene did is she didn’t hit rock bottom. She didn’t have some crazy binge. She was what would be considered an acceptable social drinker. Maybe she consumed a few too many drinks from time to time, but she wasn’t an alcoholic by that definition, but she knew it was something that she didn’t like about her life.
She realized that she was consuming too much alcohol for where she wanted to be. And she knew as a nutritionist, it wasn’t good for you. So she decided to make a radical shift and do away with alcohol forever.
Now, for those of us who do like to go out for cocktails with friends who consider social drinking a fun part of their life, that sounds like a scary prospect.
But what I love that Jolene did is just really examining, Hey, this isn’t working for me. And If you’re having something in your life like that, where you keep noticing that it’s something you don’t like about a pattern, like maybe it’s that you, eat too much junk food, or maybe you’re not exercising in the right way, or maybe you start exercising but don’t keep going with it. What pattern in your life is stopping you from really feeling good about yourself? And that’s what Jolene did. She decided that that alcohol consumption wasn’t for her. It wasn’t that she had hit a rock bottom or anything like that. She just decided that she wanted to make a big shift.
And what I love about what she did with it from there is she just started talking to people about it. And as she talked to more and more people, it just kind of snowballed. So that kind of thing can really shift a big part of your life. It shifted her entire business as a nutritionist to develop more programs for this gray area of drinking.
And I love that she also kind of niched down into this. You know, as a nutritionist, of course, you’re probably advising people to eat healthy, not drink too much, et cetera. But she really got into the physiology of it. And realize she could make a bigger difference and that’s what led her to shift everything in her business. Do the Ted talk and really follow that thread into a new direction for her.
So, you know, a shift in your health may not lead to a shift in your business, but it could possibly lead to some new passions. Maybe you really realize that. You were living life, not in the way you wanted. And you decide to make some other changes and it can lead to, just being the better version of you.
So I love that she made this shift that she then just kept going with it, decided to apply to speak at TED, TEDx and really get into that a little bit more and realize that she was getting interviews and she was getting more press and she was getting more visibility because of this new direction she was taking.
But whatever it might be, if you are. Just noticing something, if something is popping up for you, I would really make some commitment and decide how you’re going to make that radical shift. Maybe it is doing something like getting hypnotherapy or diving into a little bit deeper reasons why you might do what you do and really understand how to make that big habit shift.
Because when you do, you can feel so much better about yourself just like Jolene did. So if you haven’t had a chance to tune in to episode 152, I highly suggest you go do that now.
