662. Expert Interview: Cultivating Your Maximum Strength in Mind, Body and Spirit
Pamela Gold grew up on her family’s apple farm in upstate New York, graduated from Yale University, and then entered the business world in New York City, where she was the point person on an IPO at the age of 24. Leaving the workforce to start a family, she co-founded West Village Parents and went on to pursue her passion for fitness and wellness. It was through this pursuit that she discovered yoga, which connected her love of philosophy, science, psychology and wellness and eventually led her to discover her life’s work: teaching inner peace as the key to our greatest evolution and, ultimately, World Peace. She founded Gold Evolution and released her first book, Find More Strength: 5 Pillars to Unlock Unlimited Power and Happiness, in 2017.
Cultivating Your Maximum Strength in Mind, Body and Spirit
“From the time I was little I had an overachiever mentality. I always wanted to figure everything out and be as strong as possible in all ways. Once I became a young adult, I realized that was not really solving all my life issues. When I started diving deep into that inner strength territory, everything started getting really good. I realized that inner strength was the key to accelerating our outward achievements, even more so than I had done while just kind of bulldozing my way through, without having that inner strength piece.”
Why Is This Important?
“Most people don’t appreciate or spend much time thinking about our inner strength or spiritual health. I describe spiritual health as our ability to love and trust. Do you love yourself? Do you trust and respect yourself? Do you love life, all of life? Do you trust and respect all of life? That, to me, is spiritual health and spiritual strength.”
What Are the Key Lessons Learned Here?
“Practicing inner, spiritual strength is practicing compassion, gratitude, openness and surrender, which feels like being in the flow of life. The more we can be in that flow with love, with joy and with surrender, that is inner strength. That is spiritual strength. That is what I have been focusing on the last number of years, because the returns on that investment are big. Really big!”
