29 PJ Dixon – Active Loving


PJ Dixon on The Stay Inspired Podcast with Kongit Farrell

Putting yourself out there is hard, especially when you’re vulnerable. Giving other people love sometimes feels like the *hardest thing* and we don’t know how to move forward. But for our guest today, the key may not be to start loving others more, but to learn to love *yourself* first.

PJ Dixon has spent his entire life living by Henry Ford’s philosophy, “If you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.” Despite the disability that was expected to take his life by age seven, he is a snow skier, skydiver, former wheelchair athlete, 10th degree black belt, women’s self-defense instructor, and “self-professed advocate of love”.

PJ’s compassion radiates throughout this interview and he really lives his philosophy. Today on the podcast, we’re talking about intentional love and how it all starts with loving ourselves first. Join me for this fulfilling and joyous interview of our wonderful guest, PJ Dixon!
