Chasing Life with Robert Pardi
#300: Chasing Life with Robert Pardi
Today we are speaking with the Life Coach and Author, Robert Pardi. Robert, born in NYC, is one of those rare individuals who embraces change and lives what he calls “possibility in action”. He received his MBA from Columbia University and was quickly recruited by the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, one of the largest sovereign wealth funds. Shortly after, his wife Desiree, was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. Unfortunately, she passed 11 years later. In 2014, throwing caution to the wind, Robert leapt from his comfort zone. He changed careers and moved to the same Italian village his great grandfather immigrated from over 100 years ago. He is now a certified life coach, adjunct professor, international guest speaker, and the Author of Chasing Life - The remarkable true story of love, joy, and achievement against all odds.
In this episode we discuss:
1) Robert shares his thoughts on our imperfections and how it relates to a mosaic or a kaleidoscope and how our imperfections add character and depth to our character.
2) The meaning we give to grit, loss, grief, and how our perspective can shift the meaning of all of it.
3) How expectations are the bricks with which we build our prison and left unchecked they become the warden of that prison ~ Robert Pardi
4) The purpose and driving force behind Robert’s book, Chasing Life.
