In a world that seems to be more and more divided, there is less interest in a serious discussion of issues, be they personal or global. Why does this trend seem to be getting worse? In this episode Leaha and Howard look at how our minds really work. They identify flaws in the system, like unreliable memory, distorted attention and a narrative that is driven by personal interest and emotion rather than facts. We are story-tellers not truth seekers and in this episode our hosts give examples of how this tendency can lead to poor choices and decisions. Leaha and Howard also consider what we can all do to recognize these flaws and minimize their influence on our lives.

Leaha Mattinson is a change management specialist, life coach, speaker, and author who “walks her talk” in a truly extraordinary way. In 2008 she learned she would someday inherit Huntington’s disease, a genetic, neurological, terminal illness that affects the brain and progressively shuts down the mind and body. It was a devastating diagnosis—yet Leaha realized that to be true to the message she shares with clients she must live her life consciously with enthusiasm, grace and gratitude.
She developed her own wellness protocol to halt the onset of the disease by focusing on nutrition, exercise, restorative sleep, mindfulness and a pervasive sense of reverence for life. But the most crucial attribute of Leaha’s success is her mindset: she embraces passion, happiness, and possibility, and turns all negativity into positive life experiences. She attributes her work ethic and values to the example set by her beloved parents and a childhood growing up on a farm where she was immersed in the rhythms of nature.
Her mission is to share these valuable insights with others. As a life and executive coach, she guides her clients toward self-improvement by helping them resolve underlying fears, interrupt bad habits, and break through barriers in order to achieve their goals. She is also a speaker, addressing topics such as stress management, finding courage, discovering purpose, living in uncertainty, and facing terminal illness.
Leaha shares her own life story in her upcoming book "Silver Linings: How to Be Unstoppable in the Face of a Terminal Illness." Master Your Life is aimed at people who are passionate about wellness, personal growth and self-improvement—those who are eager to bring real change to the way they live and find meaning in a world that’s often brutally stressful and disconnected.
Leaha lives on a ranch west of Red Deer, Alberta with her partner Dwayne, their blended family, a pack of happy dogs, and a herd of horses.
