Today I’m joined by best-selling author, podcast host and mental fitness strategist Marc Champagne. In Mark’s book, Personal Socrates, he explored the pointed questions that stimulate our mental fitness and teach us how to direct our internal narrative to work for us instead of against us. Marc studied the prompts and practices of legends such as Kobe Bryant, Maya Angelou, Robin Williams, James Clear, Coco Chanel, Stephen Hawking, and many others to bring clarity, intentionality, and possibility to every aspect of reader’s lives.
In this episode, Marc unpacks what he’s learnt about the mental fitness practices and reflective questions shaping the lives of some of the most successful and brilliant thinkers in the world.
