Episode 19 - Adopt, Don't Shop (Romanian Dog Rescue) - Delia Botea

11/14/2021
Who needs to do something about it? For Delia Botea, the answer was “Me.” In Romania, a country where there are 600 000 stray dogs roaming the streets, waiting to be captured and very likely killed, Delia made a choice: If no one helps these poor, often malnourished, injured, sick, abandoned souls… she must do it. Once scared of dogs herself, she started rescuing one dog at a time and had all of her family members host one. Soon she was running out of safe havens for her rescues, so she...

Episode 18 - The Blue Collared Woman - Teagan Dowler

10/15/2021
Can you be the same person at work that you are at home? Before brushing off this question, pause and reflect. Why should you even ask yourself this? Why shouldn’t you be able to be yourself at work? Why should this be important, after all? Workplaces are spaces in which we spend a whole lot of our time. It’s where we show up, challenge ourselves and others, learn, experience setbacks, laugh, fight, inspire, join forces, burn or bore out. It is an important space and we deserve to be seen,...

Episode 17 - Unicorn in Uniform (Germany's First Transgender Commander) - Anastasia Biefang

9/15/2021
Do you show your true self at work and in all your relationships? You do not need to struggle with your gender identity to experience difficulties in answering YES to that question. Being ourselves first and foremost – and not what we think is expected of us in our many social roles – can be a courageous act. For Anastasia Biefang, the first transgender commander of the German Armed Forces, it took decades to stop pushing her inner truth back down. After many years of service, she took...

Episode 16 - Are You an Imposter?

8/22/2021
⁠Do you doubt you live up to people's expectations of you? Do you tend to belittle your own successes? Welcome to the club of many.⁠ ⁠Sometimes we call it modesty, sometimes we speak in the name of realism, sometimes we claim to acknowledge the support of others.⁠ But frankly: oftentimes we simply cannot accept our own greatness.⁠ ⁠In this episode, we unpack the so-called IMPOSTER SYNDROME – a psychological phenomenon that has people feeling like they are a fraud. It disproportionately...

Episode 15 - Luck or Fate? No Success Comes By Chance - Romeo Salazar

7/18/2021
Are you holding open the door for fate to enter or do you push it close? Sometimes we win, sometimes we lose. Sometimes we hit obstacles, sometimes miracles lift us across them. In this episode, musical theatre performer Romeo Salazar shares his experience of losing the stage to perform on during the Covid pandemic. In this juicy, textured conversation we contrast seemingly mere luck and helping fate find you through your active being and doing. Filipino-born and Catholic-raised Romeo...

Episode 14 - Fear of Not Being Perfect Is Costly

6/20/2021
How much are you willing to sacrifice in order to hide your „imperfections“? We all do it at times. We throw our energy, time, and an impressively creative charade of excuses onto the things we feel insecure about, ashamed of, or „not ready yet“ for. We willingly trade our dreams, opportunities, and belief in ourselves for a chance to hide our imperfections from the people around us. And for the peace in knowing that we cannot fail… because we decided not to try in the first place. This...

Episode 13 - How to Find Humility and Dignity on the Journey to Fertility - Sandra Winterbach

5/16/2021
Did you know that up to 1 in 4 recognized pregnancies end in miscarriage? This is something few know about. In school during sex education, we learn how to avoid pregnancies. However, the other side of the medal is rarely spoken about: How to deal with not being able to get pregnant or the child never making it through to being a new, miraculous life on this planet. What does it really mean to experience a miscarriage? What do hormonal contraceptives you took in the past have to do with...

Episode 12 - Loving 2-4-1 - Chris, Sven and Andy

4/18/2021
Can you imagine sharing life with more than one partner? Find the love of your life, get married, buy a house, have kids. This default notion of a desirable, successful path in life is a common theme in society. In this picture, a monogamous “escalator” type relationship plays a central role. However, vowing sexual exclusivity to, loving and living with one partner only is not the sole option. It is estimated that about 4-5 % of people living in the U.S. are practising a consensual...

Episode 11 - Challenge Is a Given, Attitude a Choice - Kara Scott

3/14/2021
Have you ever questioned feeling pity for someone with a disability? This conversation might make you do just that. Kara Scott had been confronted for years with strange neurological symptoms and vague diagnoses that would make a spelling champion break a sweat. Her life changed for good when, on the flight home after a family vacation, paralysis hit from her chest down. She has got every reason to resent her fate, or so one might think. But she won’t buy that. This energetic mum of two...

Episode 10 - Higher Quality Questions, Higher Quality Results

2/14/2021
Does your way of asking questions get you ahead or does it set you back? We pose questions all the time, out of a desire to understand, to connect, to get clearer on a course of action, to challenge others, and a million more reasons. Questions are such a basic component of our linguistic toolkit, rarely do we pay attention to their power. Yet, questions are far from being innocent or incidental. A question has the power to alter the course of a life, conjure up harm and hurt, trigger...

Episode 9 - Sometimes 80 Percent Is Good Enough - Sarah Appelt

1/17/2021
Are you attuned to your inner voice? Can you relate to the feeling of not being able to be your true self in the circumstances you are in? To experiencing pressure, stress, and the resulting effects on your body and mind as you try to meet the expectations of yourself and others? Depending on how deep you are stuck in the rabbit hole, you might think that there is no way out, that you are just not enough to meet the demands, that you’ll have to continue to fight. But be mindful of the fact...

Episode 8 - Challenge as a Meditation - Jason Stephenson

12/19/2020
How well are you connected to who you truly are being at the core? What might sound like an awkward question to some is a game changer once we actually open up to it. We are more than our name, our profession, our history. Jason Stephenson, the creator of guided mediation and affirmation recordings, reflects on how mindfulness helps to strip away those superficial layers of identity and to get closer to your authentic being and your calling in life. In the true spirit of 2020, this episode...

Episode 7 - Embracing Uncertainty - Francesco Leone

11/13/2020
Have you ever wondered why phone booths in Italy might be wider than elsewhere? Well, it's most likely an untrue myth, to be fair. Plus, this is definitely not the topic of the episode - but you'll hear an answer anyway if you keep listening to the very end. In this episode, you'll get to meet Francesco Leone. A serial entrepreneur who does not consider himself to be one. All his life, being a passionate dreamer and a multi-faceted character, Francesco has created an authentic path for...

Episode 6 - Money off my Mind - Rebecca Bek Huynh

10/16/2020
Are you putting others first and leaving yourself behind in the process? There is no right answer to the question of how much sacrifice is adequate and what degree of egoism is healthy. Luckily, life is not about either/or. Our span of life provides plenty of room for taking care of others as well for exploration, self-expression, and goal pursuit. When Bek Huynh was only a teenager, she made a decision to get her parents out of debt. She disobeyed her parents’ wish for her to pursue...

Episode 5 - Reset through Fasting

9/18/2020
Pleasure, indulgence and abundance is a popular theme of society Especially in safe and economically prosperous parts of the world. Abstaining from something that we enjoy and think we need can therefore be experienced as anything between pointless, sad, and even downright scary. This could apply to all kinds of things, like cars, kitchen gadgets, sex, traveling or posting selfies on social media. But none of these examples pose an actual existential threat when we decide to renounce these...

Episode 4 - Finding Resilience in 21 Hour Swim - Ashleigh Seymour

8/14/2020
What proof do you need to believe in your own resilience? A lot of people tend to attribute their successes in life to external factors. Well, I was just lucky… I had help I couldn’t have done it without. This does not really foster one’s self-esteem. But what if you swam across the sea for 21 hours without stopping, without touching anything solid, through glearing day and pitch black night? Even the humblest soul must then acknowledge the fact that she is nothing short of resilient and...

Episode 3 - The Hidden Superpower

7/17/2020
Do you take others for granted? You would realize that, at the latest, if you complained about something someone did “not right”. All of us are making hundreds of choices daily when interacting with ourselves or other people. We could choose to be rude, to be unreliable, to be ignorant. Yet instead, most of us most of the time decide to be respectful, to do our best, to be trustworthy. We learn and grow and we become damn good at things others rely on us to do. So how come in some social...

6/15/2020
Would you have it in you to cross the US all the way from the southern to the northern end… on foot? Well, in episode 2 you get to meet someone who did just that. Thomas Clemens walked the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), a long-distance hiking trail that stretches for 4270 kilometers, in 5 months and 13 days. Doing nothing but putting one foot after another, day after day, across snow-covered mountains and through the searing heat of the desert, Thomas proved how far willpower and a strong...

My name is Tina Hewelt and I create WHYLD because I love people and am deeply curious about why they do what they do.
