We had the good fortune of connecting with Tudor Alexander and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tudor, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Consistency. In the end life is ruled by change, and even your vision today will one day evolve into something greater than you can imagine. Throughout this dynamic process, all you have is practice. Life is a practice. Sure, it is a journey as you have undoubtedly heard, but really it is a practice. A journey you can go on without being the driver, but practice requires your intention, repetition, focus and discipline. Goals are illusions, both in life and in business. They are necessary to string us along, but what you do before and after the goal doesn’t change – you are still practicing. The distance between you and your ideal self is infinite, and what that really means is that achievement and comparison is all meaningless. This is the secret to motivation. Do things because you love to do them, because you enjoy the practice. Any other reason will undoubtedly lead you to a little suffering when change strikes your life.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am a coach and entrepreneur living in beautiful Phoenix, Arizona and I host the weekly self-development podcast, The Dance of Life. I am also a teacher on the popular meditation app, Insight Timer. I work with people to align their body, mind and soul so that success comes naturally. I am also an avid biohacker, writing wellness articles and drawing on over 16 years of experience of professional athletics, research and experimentation. My writing and podcasts have touched thousands of lives, and I have coached countless clients in a variety of settings to live an aligned life and create the success they deserve.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would ask this friend what they preferred and go from there. Sedona, Grand Canyon, Havasu Falls, Payson, Pinetop, Prescott or Safford are all great areas. In town I avoid Mill Avenue or downtown Scottsdale, but there are some great restaurants in Phoenix (like Tarbell’s) or cultural areas like the Chinese cultural center or Mekong Plaza in Mesa.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
There are many people in our life that prop us up, and for me that is my family, my friends, my clients, my audience, my editor and the guests on my podcast to name a few.
