A couple of months ago, Henry & I had a really long chat about life purpose, direction and how one could find and live their so-called 'passion'. We started off pretty broadly and it was a relaxed conversation. But it gets very deep and serious very soon after!

The topic is something that both Henry and I are really passionate about. Both coming from medical backgrounds (dentistry and veterinary science to be specific), our choice to start Volant Wear and The Badminton Podcast came a bit from the left field and was based around wanting to do something that we love and that we're passionate about.

Badminton Essentials

I'm trying not to toot our own horns here but I'm being 100% honest when I say that there are some amazing nuggets of wisdom in the episode. They're things that we have learnt from our journey and all of the self-developing material that we have consumed - for me, it's books, podcasts and live events such as Unleash The Power Within and Date With Destiny by Tony Robbins.

For Henry, it is many many books (he has an obsession with buying books!), audiobooks, podcasts, videos, TED talks and more. And if I had heard this a few years ago, I really think that it would have helped me immensely.

But rather than me just write about it, it would be the best if you just listened to it for yourself. And make sure you do the things we mention at the end because they are extremely powerful processes!

So, how do you hit the sweet spot in Badminton? Let me tell you...
