Episode 191: Jonathan Belle | Be Who You Want to Be: Superman, Super Human

191.png

Life Athletes, hello and welcome to episode 191 of the Life Athletics podcast.

Today’s guest life athlete is Jonathan Belle.

Everyone needs a superhero.

For Jonathan, he became his own superhero.

In November 2016, Jonathan packed his bags and left his job at Union Pacific Railroad. For a year and a half, he lived in a van and washed dishes on the side - what for? To become who he truly is: Superman.

With a suit that he got from an Etsy shop, he started taking breathtaking self-portraits of himself and fully transformed into Superman.

You might have seen his photos pop up on your social media feeds. At first glance, it looks breathtaking! Jonathan appreciates all the compliments he receives for his awesome photos, but more importantly, he wants to inspire whoever comes across his photos.

If a six-foot-two bearded Black man wears a Superman suit while doing groceries or running errands, then you can too. As a matter of fact, you can be whoever you want to be as long as you're doing good and not stepping on anybody's toes.

Jonathan's habit of thought includes waking up each morning, thinking positive thoughts. Meanwhile, his habit of action has him writing down the things he wants to accomplish during the day, saying that writing them down makes them more "real" rather than just random thoughts. 

During his spare time, Jonathan works hard to perfect his craft by teaching himself new skills to keep himself relevant.

Are you inspired yet? Listen in to learn more about Jonathan and his journey to becoming the hero he always wanted to be.

Life Athletes, hello and welcome to episode 190 of the Life Athletics podcast.

Today’s guest life athlete is Amrita Sophia.

Amrita is a Sacred Sexpert and Kundalini Yoga Teacher. She spent years under a cloud of shame, her sexual energy on lock down, resulting in a life of unfulfilling relationships, unsatisfying jobs, and general dis-ease. It wasn’t until she came to understand that Sexual Energy in its healthy state EMPOWERS that her life began to transform, finally experiencing the true intimacy and connection she had long been seeking. 

Amrita’s life experiences, transforming her greatest Shadow into her Super Power, her professional training and her service as a Teacher and Coach have all conspired in creating her life mission - to empower others in their Pleasure, Passion, and Presence.

On this episode, Amrita and I dive into the reality of what sex is and what it means to people who have experienced it, who have had enough of it, and who have grown weary of it. Sex is more than an act of passion between two people; it’s more about the connection between two people.

Learn how Amrita opened up and allowed herself to express her true sexual energy without hesitation.

Life Athletes, hello and welcome to episode 178 of the Life Athletics Podcast.

Today's guest life athlete is Steve Wood.

This episode is close to my heart, as aside from this being a birthday episode for me, the guest is also a special person in my life - my father.

Until a year and a half ago, my father and I weren't in speaking terms. Something cracked open at that time, and our relationship has been nothing short of wonderful ever since.

I was born in the year 1978, and I feel like it's timely to release this episode being episode 178 and my mother - who was also previously on the show - was on episode 78.

Again, I've never thought my father and I would arrive at this point where we share wonderful stories of how our lives have unfolded. Stev Wood is currently based in India, but we've kept close communication ties with each other since we started talking again. He has visited me here in Bali for my birthday last year, and I'm very happy to be sharing my birthday this year with him through this podcast.

You'll hear wonderful stories about my father's adventures, how he took me on some of them, and how those adventures more or less mirror the ones I've been on in this lifetime.

Enjoy!
