The Wellness Puzzle Podcast

Optimise your life

Episode Summary

In episode 90, I speak with great friend, author, speaker and coach, Helen Mac. We go back decades, as I started personally training her and her late husband Lachlan back in the 90's. Helen has spent many years in speaking, coaching, writing and training in the area of optimism. Her own optimism was severely tested as she went through the heartbreaking journey of losing her husband of 30 years just four years ago. How she negotiated the tragedy and came through, using her own optimism process is captivating. Trust me, this is an inspiring and powerful conversation you do not want to miss.

Episode Notes

Helen Mac has been inspiring and empowering people for many decades. She is the author of two books, has contributed to another four, is a professional speaker, empowering trainer and passionate coach. Her message is strong and clear and it is that optimism is where we need to be, if living our best life is the goal. She explained to me the difference between optimism and positive thinking, and it was very powerful.

Helen's resolve and message of optimism was severely tested when her husband of 30 years, Lachlan, became very ill and passed away only four years ago. As she was describing this heartbreaking journey, she also inspired me with the passion and love she and Lachlan had for each other. I was spellbound as she explained how they went about making sure Lachlan left as he chose to go and Helen lived her life after he had gone. I discovered one thing for sure: optimism is not just what Helen talks about, it is how she lives her life. 

Helen's process for an optimising life is simple and empowering, and I know it will impact every single person who listens and acts of her four step process. She has transformed her life, her business and is now re-married and blissfully happy. This is a powerful, inspiring and wonderful conversation you do not want to miss.
