In Episode 2741 of The Strong Life Project, titled “You Are Either Feeding Your Demons or Angels,” host Shaun O’Gorman explores a concept that resonates deeply with everyone from CEOs and executives to high-stress professionals like police officers and military personnel: the dual forces that influence our behaviour, thoughts, and ultimately, our lives. Drawing upon his own harrowing journey through PTSD, depression, and suicidal ideations, Shaun delves into the idea that every choice we make feeds either our demons or our angels.
Shaun talks candidly about how stress management and resilience aren’t merely about handling external situations but are fundamentally connected to the internal struggle between our negative and positive forces. He argues that in high-performance environments, where stress is often seen as an inevitable companion, recognizing and actively choosing which internal force to feed becomes critical for long-term success and well-being.
Featuring compelling real-life examples and insights from his one-on-one coaching sessions, Shaun shares actionable tips for identifying the triggers that awaken our ‘demons’ and the strategies to fuel our ‘angels’. From mindfulness techniques to leadership skills that foster a culture of empowerment rather than fear, the episode packs a punch for anyone looking to elevate their game and lead a high-performing existence.
So, whether you’re an executive battling boardroom stress, or a first-responder dealing with life-and-death scenarios, tune in to discover how you can take control of your inner landscape. Remember, it’s not just about surviving but thriving, and the choice of which force to feed can make all the difference.
