Play Your Position with Mary Lou Kayser

“No matter how skillful we are, we are always going to have blind spots. We just can’t know what we don’t know,” says today’s PYP MVP Pamela Gold. “And don’t even get me started on what phones are doing to us!” she laughs. “Our phones are messing with our minds!”


You will love today’s conversation with Pamela Gold. Some history: Pamela grew up on her family’s apple farm in upstate New York, graduated from Yale University, and then entered the business world in NYC where she was the point person on an IPO at the age of 24. Leaving the workforce to start a family, she co-founded West Village Parents and went on to pursue her passion for fitness and wellness. It was through this pursuit that she discovered yoga, which connected her love of philosophy, science, psychology, and wellness and eventually led her to discover her life’s work: teaching inner peace as the key to our greatest evolution and ultimately, world peace.


About a year and a half ago, she had a really big shift and wrote a book as a result of that shift -- it took her two weeks to write and the rest is history. It’s called Find More Strength: 5 Pillars to Unlock Unlimited Power and Happiness and it is full of tragedy to triumph personal stories, along with actionable tools to help increase power and happiness in life.


She jokes that all her friends read it and liked it and gave her those warm and fuzzy feelings we all love to feel from time to time. But the real mark of success for her is the outpouring of positive responses she continues to receive from strangers who tell her how much this book is changing their lives.


Leadership skills and insights Pam shares on today’s show include:


  • How do we use our phones to make life better, while minimizing the noise and clutter that threaten to take us out if we don’t develop the right skills to tackle them
  • How to use our brains to stay centered
  • What to do when we lose an important relationship
  • Why we give away our power too easily sometimes
  • When putting some of our happiness on how another person is treating us and caring about us becomes a problem
  • How to practice self compassion
  • Why it’s so hard not to take things personally
