Here’s our next superhero from WDS 2017:
Agapi Stassinopoulos is a best-selling author and speaker who inspires audiences around the world. In her previous book, Unbinding the Heart: A Dose of Greek Wisdom, Generosity, and Unconditional Love, she shares the wisdom from her life’s adventures and experiences. In her new book, Wake Up to the Joy of You: 52 Meditations and Practices for a Calmer, Happier Life, she takes readers on a journey and inspires them to let go of what doesn’t work and instead create the lives they really want.
Beginning and ending her keynote with joy and dancing to the delight of the WDS 2017 community, Agapi challenged us to claim everything we want with ‘chutzpah’ because we’re good people and we deserve it. Agapi shared her belief that each of us carries the light that the earth needs right now.
“I’m about dominating the world with the open heart. Dominate the world with your light.”
“Because we’re doing good work, it doesn’t mean that we have to suffer. Do you hear me? Loud and clear?”
“No does not mean a thing! I am a ‘yes’ woman, and I’m going to hear all the no’s in the world until I get to my yes.’”
