#118: Kristi Amdahl: from severe depression to finally taking ownership of her life
A Voice during Kristi's bleakest period rescued her from severe depression to living in her "zone of genius". Hear her incredible story of hope and following her inner compass.
You are responsible for your own happiness, regardless of what's happened in your past. A job, degree, or a partner can't save you.
Taking ownership of life might not look drastic at first, it could be upgrading from a very crappy job to a less crappy job and making small changes in baby steps
A key to happiness is viewing things from a different lens, look for opportunities in your struggles and find gratitude for the lessons being taught to you
Listening to your inner compass can be highly inconvenient, but it'll tell you if you're living your life for others as opposed to yourself
Most people get stuck at what they're good at ("zone of excellence" mentioned in The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks, but this isn't how to live a fulfilled life. Instead, you want to live in your zone of genius.
Persistent physical problems can be your soul telling you you're not on your right path or you're not living the life you're meant to live.
Get in touch with your intuition and trust it. It's the Universe or God showing you you're on the right track.
