Every Monday, I head out to discover new aspects of Personal Development through interviews with inspirational guests who transformed their life’s. Together, we step back in history, as we explore what it takes to realise and act upon big Life-Changing Opportunities. Don’t reinvent the wheel but learn from the experiences of others. Naturally your own journey is unique but the success of other’s might be that little push you need to get started.
I’m honoured to have the super-woman Kristina Paltén on the show. She is the Swedish ultra-marathon runner with several World records, who one day decided to challenge herself and her own fears for the unknown in an extreme way. Kristina ran 1,840 KM through a Muslim country with sharia laws and almost lost one of her best friends in the process. If anyone knows, how to confront and manage fears it must be this woman. Prepare yourself as we take a journey into the psychology of an elite runner.

- How to identify and follow positive over negative thoughts
