How to Embrace a Beginners Mind and Grow through Discomfort

How to Embrace a Beginners Mind and Grow through Discomfort

Lately I’ve been going back to learning what I thought I already knew, and at the same time I’ve been embracing everything I don’t know as I throw myself into the arena of the future of work and learning.

And that’s a scary place to be. The not knowing space. The relinquishing any thoughts you had about being an expert, to embrace a beginner’s mind and enjoy being a student of life.

That’s at the very heart of what Derek Loudermilk and I jammed on in this episode of UNTAPPED.

Derek is a friend and kindred spirit, and he’s also the creator of AdventureQuest Travel, a professional adventurer, bestselling author, speaker, digital nomad and a business coach.

He is the host of the Art of Adventure podcast, one of the top podcasts in the world for location independent business, adventure travel and cutting edge topics.

And to top it off, he is the author of Superconductors: Revolutionize Your Career and Make Big Things Happen, which was long listed for the 2018 UK Best Business Book awards.

He specialises in coaching people who wants to get out of their cubicles and create a life of time, financial, and location freedom. Yep we are pretty much on the same page!

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • How Derek has built up revenue streams from his multi-faceted career choices and life experiences including being a pro cyclist!
  • Derek’s thoughts on robots and automation of work
  • The value of self-experimentation
  • Derek’s view on developing an alter ego
  • His advice for untapping your potential
