Have you lost your childlike imagination? Do you still find wonder in the world or are you more cynical than ever?
My guest today is the incredible illusionist, storyteller, and author Harris III! Harris and I have a fascinating conversation today about the concept of wonder and why awe is vital for thriving in life. Harris shares how to reawaken child-like wonder, how awe impacts our physical and mental health in a powerful way, and why it’s important to find magic in the mundane.
We also chat about:
How gratitude can reawaken the magic in our life
The “special” lie and why we need to debunk it
And how to find our greatest purpose out of our deepest pain

What I understand of wonder is that it’s contagious. Their wonder and response to that first magic trick reawakened my wonder, turned on the wonder switch, and gave me permission to start dreaming of this whole new possible life
Wonder is this really essential process. It’s this state that we can get back to that gives us permission to believe.
The presence of awe and wonder can boost the production of cytokines in your body. It can boost your immune system, it can decrease stress.
There’s magic in the mundane. There’s beauty right in front of our faces, we just can’t see it.
You can live an extraordinary life, just like anyone else you admire, if you understand the fact that we are all special. Contained within us all is this magic and the ability to do extraordinary things.
