The Art of Living Extraordinarily
Summary: The Art of Living Extraordinarily distills the journeys of trail blazers from all walks of life. But this path is not for the faint of heart, which is why Olympic Snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler has created this podcast. By sharing these conversations, she hopes to show that the path to following your heart looks different for everyone. And yet within the diversity, there are common themes woven within all of the stories. Themes that are applicable to all of us. The listener will be more equipped with tools, inspired and empowered to go out and create their own extraordinary life.
In this episode we dig into an experience that many of us have or will face at some point in our lives, how fear has the ability to bury our passions without us even knowing it. And we get to a point where we start to question if we should still be going after our dreams. The good news is Arielle Gold has reconnected with her fire and reclaimed positive momentum in a major way. And now we get to learn the tools and techniques she used to come out on the other side.
