Hello and welcome to Awesome People, I'm Lisa Heinricks your host and creator. I started Awesome People because I wanted world peace….but then everyone laughed at me when I said that….”That's weird” I thought, doesn't everyone want world peace?
Of course we all do, it’s pretty rare that someone doesn't…..but then why do we not have world peace? That's the real question. What I realized is that we can’t have world peace if we are broken people. World Peace starts from within and works it's way out. Simple really. So then we need to fix ourselves!! Not so simple….
I grew up in a very fractured home, constant instability and a persistent reminder that peace was only a construct, something people talked about but nobody actually lived by. As I got older I persevered with my goal of world peace. Group therapy, personal therapy, self help books, tai chi, sports, painting, paint therapy….and then, over time, through a midlife crisis, I finally found the solution, “Life is simple if we let it be.” This is a simple statement but it’s the one truth I know.
Peace comes from within and it’s the path to world peace.
And so this is my mission, to create a lifestyle that helps win the day, win the year, win life! What do I want to accomplish in my life? What kind of person do I wanna be? What kind of legacy will I be leaving behind? How do I give back and pass all this on to others?
