About this Episode

Do you sometimes find yourself wishing that you had a bigger platform, a larger following or extra credibility so that you could make a bigger difference to more people? Yeah, well, me too.

The way we turn major celebrities and social media stars into superheroes, means that we tend to overlook and even down play the difference we can make, right here and now.

Not only that, but we also miss the incredible acts of everyday heroes in our lives. The ordinary people who make a difference, who inspire, who show tremendous acts of selfless and courage.

Today’s guest, Dan Stanford, the author of "Lose the Cape. Embrace ordinary” shares some powerful stories and insights on how to create, discover and celebrate every day heroic acts.

This chat with Dan gave me the inspiration and tips I needed to stop and embrace the everyday moments of heroism. Whether it be seeing even more acts of kindness, selflessness and love within my family, or having even greater appreciation of the work, passion and dedication of my team, and noticing so much more positivity, bravery and compassion in the people I encounter each day.

Again, I know this conversation was quite powerful for me, and I trust it will be for you too.

Some of the topics we chat about:

  • Noticing everyday acts of heroism
  • Availability is more important than ability
  • Be willing to use what you have the betterment of others
  • How to see the difference you can make
  • What would you do if you weren’t afraid?
  • When courage is contagious
  • Your innate value
