Are you living your best life? What does that mean for you? For some people it’s about power, money or status and all that they dream that will bring. For other people it’s about the quest for fulfilment, answering their calling and realising their full potential.

In last week’s interview (#071) I talked to Chief Fire Officer for Cornwall Fire & Rescue, Kathryn Billing. During our conversation she shared how a life of service to her community had become a personal search for deepening fulfilment, and her true sense of self, as she navigated the career path and stepped into leadership.

Looking back on our conversation, I explore three key themes that stood out for me: the pursuit of self-discovery, the power of language to create influence & impact, and the desire for self-actualisation and to be our best self.

If you’re looking to find fulfilment and deepen your understanding of who you need to be to realise your full potential, this week’s Insights episode is for you.
