Welcome back to another episode of Noughty Moments, whereby each week one of our remarkable guests joins us for a conversation - the out of the box decisions that went against the grain for success. And of course, for a drink (or two) of our provocative Alcohol-Free Sparkling Organic Vegan Wine, Noughty.
In episode 4 we are joined by Adam Slawson - Founder of Plight Club and on a mission to change the face of vulnerability and help people create a life without fear.
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO GO INTO YOUR LINE OF BUSINESS?
I’ve suffered from anxiety bouts for as long as I can remember but when I had one where I lost about a stone, turned grey and didn’t sleep for a week I thought I needed to do something about it. I experimented with lots of different things to re-connect to my feelings, talking more openly, in spite of the nerves, being one of them. When I saw the positive impact it had when people also shared, I noticed the energy in the room change. At the time I didn’t know what it was but I knew the world needed more of it.
WHAT NOUGHTY MOMENT SHAPED YOU AS A PERSON?
There have been quite a few things that have shaped me but the most recent being a breathwork re-birthing ceremony in Thailand.
WHAT THREE LESSONS HAVE YOU LEARNED ALONG THE WAY?
Anxiety is a symptom of underlying emotion. Anxiety in the present is often your body remembering an incident/trauma from the past and it will 100% pass (and the quicker you accept the feeling the quicker it will pass). We don’t really control anything, so accept the ride and the downs as well as ups – all won’t be around forever.
