My conversation today with Shenan Charania is about the changing relationship with self and others through the ebb and flow of life. Shenan’s life journey is so interesting. Currently, he is a transformative coach who works with inspirational leaders. He has a lovely presence and I’m looking forward to seeing what comes up in this conversation.

During this conversation, we take a deep dive into:  

  • How looking for a sense of belonging led to being involved with gang life for over ten years and the realization that a sense of belonging doesn’t come from others, things, experiences;
  • Distorted perspectives and how they play out in life;
  • The journey of self during the journey of life. From the gangster lifestyle to owning a Tim Horton’s to being a coach; and
  • Shame and guilt for past behaviours and choices don’t serve you.

Here are a few thought bomb takeaways:

  • Distorted thinking leads to distorted actions. When someone has a shift in perspective, relationships change in immeasurable ways;
  • Our own interpretation of the past changes as we evolve in our own personal growth;
  • People spend so much time, money and effort searching for the answers to who am I and where do I belong from others, books, drugs, alcohol, food, etc. These efforts are futile, it is only when we shift the direction of our search inwards will we find the answers; and
  • The most beautiful relationship you will ever be in is the one with yourself.

This conversation is a perfect example of the power of connection and the power of showing up. I hope you enjoy this episode. 

 Until next time: Be well. Be inspired. Be You.
