On today’s episode of the SHAIR Podcast our featured guest is Mark Bowness the founder of Life Change the Revolution and Tribewanted which was featured in 200 media outlets around the world including Good Morning America, The Today Show, New York Times, Sydney Morning Herald and even the South China Morning Post.
At the age of 26 years old his marriage was over and Mark hits rock bottom. Fearing that life as he knows it is over he begins drinking heavily every day and decides to end it all, so he Google’s ‘the quickest and most painless way to end his life’ and Mark attempts suicide.
After his failed attempt he wakes up in the hospital the next day and a profound realization comes over him. He had lived on planet earth for 26 years and yet had never truly lived. He experienced this moment of awakening and understanding that life is a precious gift that you can create and mold in whichever way you choose. 3 months later he leased a 200 acre-island in Fiji and invited the world to become tribe members. Join us now as Mark takes us through his battle with alcohol and attempted suicide when a spiritual awakening gives Mark a new lease on life.
SHAIR – Sharing Helps Addicts in Recovery
Here are Mark’s SHAIR Podcast interview highlights and suggestions for the Newcomer:
Tell us about how your life is today. Your hobbies, what you do for a living. Take us into your normal daily routine.
Mark: So I’m British and about two or three years ago maybe I moved to Australia. I became a permanent resident in Australia. I built my own business, a very successful business which operates Australia, UK and America globally. I want to help people change and transform their lives and I have a goal of transforming 10 million lives. We’ll impact that soon.
Omar: What number are you at now?
Mark: Well I have two Facebook groups. One has 10,000 people in it. I work with coaches to help them help people to transform their lives and I work with the public and there are about 4,500 more. Aside from business, I love hitting the beach, I love going to the gym. I love traveling; I travel as much as I can.
Do you have a favorite book you would recommend to one of our new comers? Any one, it doesn’t have to be about recovery.
What is the best suggestion you have ever received?
Mark: The best suggestion I’ve ever received? I would say really that it was a suggestion from what you and I would call a higher power, which was an awakening that we live life once. Once you own that, once you understand that, we live life once on planet earth and then you make those decisions, you understand every decision that you make can either add value to your life or really detract from the really amazing opportunity that you have so we live life once. Own it, love it and live it.
Suggestion’s for the Newcomer!
“Right now, this moment in time is your opportunity to change and transform everything”
Mark: Right now, this moment in time is your opportunity to change and transform everything. Once you grasp that, you’re empowered to live the most amazing life, but that opportunity is down to you.
