495: Pol Cousineau: Living The Crazy Adventure That’s So Fun
My guest today, on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who I connected with awhile ago, and quite simply have watched him flourish in a very short time.
He is a man who is taking bold, and some might say unusual action in a very unusual setting.
Studying at University, he left with qualifications in Accountancy and a desire to get into a solid, reliable firm and work his way up the corporate ladder.
Haven’t we seen those same ideals demonstrated on so many of the Join Up Dots interviews over he years?
Well, it wasn’t too long into his career when a life crisis led him from a professional life within an international auditing firm to the Peruvian Amazon jungle to work with shamans in a quest for healing.
Yes, amazingly he no longer commutes with a briefcase and a suit, he now takes groups of people down into the rainforest for trips with the Shamans, to gain enlightened spirituality and healing.
Now, I have spoken to him before hand and advised that Join Up Dots is not about woo woo, but it is about the average person living an amazing life.
So no stories that are too out there (although he did tell me a brief story, which was sooo out there, that we will have to try to bring it onto the show)
But he has built an amazing life by learning first-hand how to overcome fears, how to tackle huge challenges, and how to up-skill quickly to ensure his rapid progress.
So what was it about the accountancy world that didn’t light his fire once becoming part of the number crunching game?
And did his friends show concern, when he said “I’m quitting this job to go to the Amazon and find myself?”
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Mr Pol Cousineau.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Pol Cousineau such as:
How he started his accountancy career based on a desire to get some free pizza and lead him on a path that ended in despair
Why it doesn’t matter what the first step is as long as you start taking your first steps. Do anything until it feels right, but always, always start.
How his life fell apart in such a dramatic way, both emotionally and financially that he was left with one choice only…..I need to change and need to do it fast!
Why it is so important to test out a different reality every once in awhile to sense check the one that you are presently living. You will then know if changes are needed to be made.
How lunacy is a great part of building something that is uniquely you and inspires the world. Look deep into yourself and don’t worry about the crazy stuff. That could well be the key to everything.
