Life Doesn’t Come to You. You Make it Happen.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Liz Jansen, author of Women, Motorcycles and the Road to Empowerment on my blog here. Liz has great insights into transformation and other subjects. This time round, she interviewed me on her blog. But not only that! I got to do my first podcast here:

You can watch the video or listen to our interview via her website.

In other news, I’m learning that what we say is what we need to listen to. Liz quoted me saying something like, “Life doesn’t come to you. You make it happen.”

Thought of the day: Our words have power. Stop and listen.

  1. Wonderful interview with Liz, Diana. My favorite line was when you said, “If I can ride a motorcycle for fifty-one days…I can stand on my own two feet.” You should print that on a T-shirt!
    Every woman should pursue her own life lesson and state it as clearly. Well done.

    Thanks Diana.I find the same thing. In re-reading my own words, I see that they were meant for me. I ought to listen to myself more often.
