“There’s one thing that every human being on this planet fears, and it’s one shared fear amongst all of us, and that is the unknown. So that’s why we get trapped in situations where we know we’re not happy, but we don’t know how to get out of that, because to get out of that, we have to make a leap of faith.” Adele Spraggon talks about fear of the unknown on the Inspiring Great Leaders Podcast. 

“I think though coaching is one of those things that if you love doing it, it really becomes a huge purpose in life because it’s so meaningful to be able to support somebody out of those places where they think I’m trapped and I can never get out.” Finding meaning through coaching with Adele Spraggon on the Inspiring Great Leaders Podcast. 

“Our human brain is such that it creates patterns or neural pathways. And so every time that a child learns something, the brain stores that away in the form of a pattern so that it can repeat that behaviour in the future. So we tend to rely on actions that we’ve already done in the past. And once our brain has a pattern, it tends to take that action over and over again, which is why somebody can make the same mistake repeatedly knowing it’s a mistake but not being able to change it.” The neural pathways of the human brain with Adele Spraggon on the Inspiring Great Leaders Podcast.
