Having just returned from an amazing global personal development event called A-Fest provides a great opportunity to share some take-aways.. Firstly, what is A-Fest? A-Fest is an invite-only 4 day transformational event that gathers an extraordinary community of change-makers and visionaries who are driven by epic ideas to impact the world – entrepreneurs, employees, artists, leaders, innovators and visionaries.
The event facilitates a combination of powerful trainings, profound mind shifts, bio-hacking techniques, deep and life-long connections, incredible adventures and unique opportunities to multiply your impact and expand your game. With a focus on giving back to humanity, 50% of profits are reinvested into humanity positive organisations, including the X Prize Foundation, an innovation engine and a facilitator of exponential change with a focus on the solving of some of the world’s biggest problems.
A-Fest attracts world-class speakers who choose to stay on for the entire event, which speaks volumes about the quality of the experience. The theme of this event, held in Mykonos, Greece, was “Bio-Hacking, Brain & Body”. Learning about how to improve longevity, increase the body’s performance and enhance brain power as we age gracefully.
From the multitude of information covered, I have selected 3 things to share that you can easily implement right now to improve your own life experience.
“You cannot live better than in seeking to become better.”
3 things you can do right now to bio-hack your life:
- Hack your past with radical forgiveness.
Using measurable results from his “40 Years of Zen” program, Bio-Hacker Dave Asprey demonstrated that one of the best ways to increase your alpha brainwaves is by forgiving people or things that have upset you in the past. Practice forgiveness regularly. Let go of the baggage your brain is still carrying from the past to free yourself to be who you are meant to be at your best.
- Hack your present by being present
Take responsibility for the quality of your thoughts. Practice mindfulness and emphasis on the quality of your breathing.
Practice daily gratitude, which puts you in an abundance mindset and turns off the fear while also improving the quality of your sleep.
Take a minute for mindfulness when feeling overwhelm. Focus on something in front of you. Pay attention. Allow yourself to have this moment instead of fear.
- Hack your future with “I Am Enough”
Evict any fear that doesn’t serve your future. Hold remaining fear in one hand and passion in the other and take a leap. Be the author of your life story. Make sure that you write a story that’s well worth the read.
To finish of, a quote from Robert Richman, Co-Founder of Zappos: “Make your life a movie you want to be in and make it real”.
“You can choose the blue pill to stay in your current world or the red pill to wake up to the truth.”
