Phil Morphew is his journey. He is living the life many would love the courage to lead. He is creative, compassionate and intelligent but more than that he shows empathy to his fellow human beings.
And during this interview Phil courageously shares his darkest moments. He shares those challenges with truth and sincerity. I respect him for “opening up” – and hanging his washing on the line for all of us to see. Phil is a human being like us – if he can do – so can we. We are all learning.
He encourages others to grab their gifts and use them. For many, fear keeps us trapped. The fear of rejection, ridicule, failure or the fear of success.
Sadly many of us today are on somebody’s else’s journey – the decisions that change our lives are made by others.
The Fire of Desire – Phil Morphew
Phil uses this phrase with passion. And listening to the interview you’ll discover that he leads the life he encourages others to lead. Passion wins Olympic Medals. Passion gets us out of bed earlier than others. Passion means fighting for what we believe.
Phil Morphew talks about surrounding ourselves with members of our tribe. This doesn’t mean family. It’s the people we connect with who help us grow and challenge us. The people who walk a similar walk.
Phil’s Favourite Books
Most people will share the “usual suspects” but Phil’s favourite three are from the library of the ancients. This wisdom has been around for longer than most of us have been alive – urging us to find that special thing within.
As a Man Thinketh – James Allen (1902)
The Game of Life – Florence Scovel Shinn (1921)
In Tune with the Infinite – Ralph Waldo Trine (1892)
Never Give Up
Phil Morphew shares this over and over. Never to give up on our dreams. Phil believes our education system doesn’t allow kids to follow their passion. He should know – he was told by his teacher to be “realistic”.
He was. He kept that teacher’s negativity as a sign. His interpretation of “realistic” was to “believe”. He still does.
