016 — A Conversation with Dr. Paul Wood

EPISODE OVERVIEW

On this episode I sit down with motivational speaker and personal development specialist, Dr Paul Wood.

Dr Paul Woods story is one of the most interesting I have come across in a while. At just 18 years old​​, Paul went to prison and his life was off the rails. By his release in 2006, he had attained an undergraduate degree in psychology and philosophy, a master’s degree in psychology, and was two years into his Ph.D. Paul uses his journey to illustrate the process of change and how we can have lives of great meaning and purpose despite the circumstances and despite the environment.

He’s now an expert in helping people overcome their own barriers and become the best version of themselves and recently released his book which I highly recommend called: How To Escape From Prison.

In this episode Paul gives us advice on managing unpleasant emotional thoughts, the power of creating habits, and how it’s never too late to redirect yourself in life. Like all my guests, I like to go deep and extract as much value as I can, and this episode is no different. There’s some golden nuggets in here, I also ask him some questions that would make some of you uneasy. Enjoy.
