Dallas joins me today to discuss the four key pillars to move forward after experiencing an unexpected change, such as the loss of a job. He explains why change can begin only when you’ve become clear on what you truly want and what you’re comfortably willing to do to achieve it.

He explains why clarity is often so elusive for many people, especially ‘midlifers’.

Dallas demystifies common misconceptions people have on what boundaries truly are and how the process of discovery and developing self-awareness impacts your ability to achieve clarity. He also explains what a “living visual” is and why it’s okay for your wants and desires to evolve as you reach midlife.

“Everything flows from clarity.”
