What are the commitments that guide and shape your life?

For Tania, travel changed everything. Having journeyed to over 75 countries (and counting!), she learned to step beyond the script of “who I know myself to be” into the possibility of “who do I dare to be now”? No longer surrounded by the markers of everyday life, she steps beyond her comfort zone and is inspired by humanity’s potential for compassion and change. Her adventures have led to a different kind of souvenir collection — life lessons and commitments that guide and shape her life, her career and her relationships to this day.

Favorite quotes from this talk See all

If I show up, if I go first, if I allow myself to be vulnerable, I allow others to connect to me in that state. I allow them to approach me. And that's how we build connection. — Tania Carriere

I realized I am not my context. I can always leave it on the train. . . . I can leave what I don't want. Everything is a choice. I do not believe there is such a thing as, 'That's just the way I am.' — Tania Carriere

So happy you posted this video and sent an email. I was not able to attend Tania's talk and was sad I had missed it. I just loved her talk. It resonated with me and I will be adding $$$ to my travel account soon!
