Decoding Destiny: Soundbites from the C-Suite

Episode 06: Acting Your Age: Why Don’t We?

June 16, 2021

On today's episode of Decoding Destiny, Irina sits down with Linda González, a Life Coach, Author, and Facilitative Consultant, to discuss how to "act your age" and why our real age may be very different than our biological age. 

Most of us think of ourselves as being our biological age. In fact, you are a multitude of ages in different areas of maturation, making it challenging to always “act your age”. How many times have you been in a situation where you acted or reacted in a way that made you think: “This really isn’t me.” And yet, you knew it was you, just a you that was not in sync with the rest of… you. My experience is that we have eight key elements to our maturation process and that we can be at different ages in all eight due to reasons I will unpack. I will give a short definition of each element,  discuss how we might determine our age in a few, and suggest some ways to begin acting your age!
