Welcome to The WOW Mind,
We all have our 'WOW Moments' which when they occur send surges of electrifying energy through our bodies. How do we build upon this inner power or even repeat it in order to grow and feel these positive emotions. The WOW Mind aims to share just such moments of experience by talking to people that are endeavouring to change their part of the world, whether this is the world within or the world outside, they share their positive stories of growth.
Our WOW Mind guests are from all walks of life, with differing stories, experiences and focuses but all of them have one thing in common, they have had to reach inside themselves to find meaning and purpose. We share their battles, thoughts, laughs and experiences and hear how they handle their hurdles. These responses are described as a state of mind, an attitude, a mindset , a calling, or even a hobby, but either way an action takes place that leads to positivity and personal growth.
These stories from people are brought to continuously nourish us by the great things that people around us do. Inspiration comes from all walks of life and is not a material thing but a state of mind, a state of self determination and self empowerment.
The WOW Mind is a podcast on Spotify and Apple (The WOW Mind by Del Hossain), a video cast on Youtube and a beating heart through this site which aims to nourish you, if you watch , listen and act on some of the cue's.
Our blog tries to distil some of these lessons, as we come across them.
Find us on our podcast or on Youtube, to experience The WOW Mind at your own convenience or register to hear from us about up coming events as we embark upon them. We would be grateful if you would send us your thoughts on future shows, topics and guests that you think would be good to have on the show that would benefit and inspire others, so together we can make a positive impact in the world.
