On this episode Paul is joined by returning guest Noha Hefny to talk about how each and every one of us can ignite the world through being present, showing up with our full set of talents and gifts that make a difference. This will help with our interactions with other people and guides our decisions, actions and behaviours.
Paul and Noha propose setting up the Ignite The World Awards along with the ‘Women Heart to Heart’ organisation. There will be 10 award categories that reflect aspects of people around the world to celebrate their values, including the first two proposed categories; for young people and women.
We tend to not grasp the importance of our values in our lives, but they are the compass, or the guide, that will enable us to truly live our true selves and true essence in this world and show up as authentic and real.
Paul’s five core values: Life, Learning, Loving, Legacy and Loyalty – especially to yourself. Noha’s five core values: Fairness, Impact, Authenticity, Empathy (Kindness) and Freedom.
Working in refugee camps has given me a lot of experience with empathy and learning. The minute we stop learning and growing and evolving (both as humans and evolving new though processes) that’s the end of live, you should never stop learning.
We’ve been sucked into a life of daily grind, everyone’s out there trying to get work done, make money and live up to the values of family and society. As we each do this we are disconnected from our core, our essence. To reconnect I need to think of my values. Paul and I want to bring about an initiative to redefine how societies view things like achievement and success. For us, success is defined by who we are and what we stand for.
‘Values are really important, universal stepping-stones in our lives.’
‘To ignite the world we need to connect to our essence, which is grounded in our values.’
‘We’re lacking empathy in corporate leadership and in society.’
‘There are people every day around the world in different communities that are living their values and delivering impact. We want to celebrate them.’
