Welcome to another episode of the DNA Of Purpose Podcast.

In today's episode, we are traversing from the world of science into the world of wildlife, in particular, what the wild can teach us about ourselves. About our motivations, our sense of personal responsibility, and about our purpose when our life is quite literally in the jaws of an angry lioness.

Today's guest is not only a friend and colleague but also an extraordinary human being who nearly lost his life, to work out how he could best use his life in the creation of a better world.

His name is Richard Field and he is regarded as one of Africa's finest safari guides and today is a globally recognised professional speaker. At only 25 years of age he also became one of the few people who've been mauled by an angry lion and lived to tell the tale. With his life having flashed before him, and his life saved by an onlooker, Richard's recovery didn't obstruct his love for the African wilderness, but it did leave emotional scarring - and forever influenced his outlook on life.

Richard's experience has taught him the importance of responsibility, the impact and effects of giving and taking the blame and the necessity for perseverance and resilience. And while for many of you listening today, let's hope you never get attacked by a lion, but it is fair to say that we all have lions. Behaviours, patterns and beliefs that we are avoiding or not taking responsibility for.

And if the goal is to create a more abundant and optimistic future, then personally and collectively we need to take responsibility for the change that we seek in the world. After all our inner nature influences all of nature.

So without further delay let's get wild with the one and only Richard Field.
