183: The Power of Asking Great Questions To Easily and Quickly Create More From Your Life with Kass Thomas

Kass Thomas is Dr. Brad Miller’s guest on Episode 183 of “The Beyond Adversity Podcast.”

Kass is an international best-selling author, coach, communication trainer, and Access Consciousness® Certified Facilitator. She has a new 3 STEPS Program, which features a different topic each month to help people along their life’s journey!

She also offers private sessions, group training, and live and online workshops on relationships, Business Management, Money, Health, Wealth, and Beauty.

She co-writes books and has two of her own. Her first book, “7 Steps to Flawless Communication,” was published in 2015 and is now available in 20 languages, along with a teacher’s program at www.7steps.us.

Her second book, “Dancing with Riches,” was released in French by Tredaniel Publisher in 2019 and is now available in English by Schiffer Publishing.

In this episode, Kass shared when you are not willing to give up when you are eager to keep going. The world will open up something unique for you. 

Living in the United States is one of the cities with many universities. And Kass’ awareness as a child was that she wanted to go a little global, to have a larger really platform from which she could find what worked for her, and that was not accepted.

When she was eight years old, she had a third-grade teacher in Boston’s Roxburgh neighborhood who would write in French on the board every day. And it sparked something in Kass: the realization that she wanted to live in Paris and speak the language one day.

When we feel that we aren’t on the same page as others, especially mentors, parents, or instructors, we often choose to follow what they think is best for us.

If you believe in God, you should also be willing to receive help. When you are linked to yourself, you will have constant support from the cosmos, God, Allah Buddha, and others. Don’t lose touch with yourself. That’s what we do when we’re trying to emulate someone on a pedestal or a role model. But no one is there, and no one on the earth can perform well as you.

Episode 183 of The Beyond Adversity Podcast is a must-listen for the people who are keen on listening and taking the advice of others, even if they know that their plans for themselves are better ones. It’s an episode where it deals with going after what you want, taking risks, and taking the leap of faith to find the better version of “you.”

“The Beyond Adversity Podcast with Dr. Brad Miller is published weekly with the mission of helping people “Grow Through What They Go Through” as they navigate adversity and discover their promised life of peace, prosperity, and purpose.

Dr. Brad Miller:

Today we have a very accomplished author with us.

Dr. Brad Miller:

Her name is Kass Thomas. Her latest book is dancing with riches.

Dr. Brad Miller:

She is all about self-empowerment.

Dr. Brad Miller:

And she is here to encourage people to find a way

Dr. Brad Miller:

to change the tracks of their journey into transfer

Dr. Brad Miller:

from negativity into positivity, even when situations

Dr. Brad Miller:

are limited in their life. We welcome to Beyond adversity Kass Thomas cast welcome.

Kass Thomas:

Thank you so much. That's Amelia. It's a pleasure.

Kass Thomas:

Pleasure to be here. Absolutely.

Dr. Brad Miller:

It is an honor, I we've got to know each other a little bit,

Dr. Brad Miller:

I just have a sense that you have a heart

Dr. Brad Miller:

that is enormous for people, especially people who have,

Dr. Brad Miller:

you know, some hurt and some pain that

Dr. Brad Miller:

they need to find a way to, to navigate

Dr. Brad Miller:

through to come to a better place.

Dr. Brad Miller:

But it kind of starts with your story related,

Dr. Brad Miller:

you've had your share some challenges in life

Dr. Brad Miller:

that is led you now to the point where you're writing books

Dr. Brad Miller:

and offering other coaching and seminars to folks,

Dr. Brad Miller:

tell us a little bit about your background and some

Dr. Brad Miller:

of the things that you faced in order to overcome

Dr. Brad Miller:

to have your definition of success in life? Well, we

Kass Thomas:

do have about 20 hours is that yeah, that's right.

Dr. Brad Miller:

Yeah. All the time you want later.

Kass Thomas:

You know, a lot of times I love that title,

Kass Thomas:

also, beyond adversity, because a lot of times

Kass Thomas:

one of the main adversities that we have is with ourselves,

Kass Thomas:

you know, we feel sometimes that were wrong,

Kass Thomas:

especially if people don't relate to us and don't see what and how we're choosing.

Kass Thomas:

So, it's so many various examples to give.

Kass Thomas:

But usually, it starts around childhood when you see things

Kass Thomas:

in a different way than other people see them. As I said, I born

Kass Thomas:

and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, which is you know,

Kass Thomas:

living in the States is one of the cities where there's so many universities.

Kass Thomas:

And my awareness as a child was that I wanted to go a bit global,

Kass Thomas:

and have a larger really platform from which I could find

Kass Thomas:

what really was working for me and that was not something

Kass Thomas:

that was accepted. Neither by my school which was in Boston, Latin,

Kass Thomas:

one of the oldest public high schools in in the country in the US

Kass Thomas:

and by my parents, but when I was eight,

Kass Thomas:

ultimately there was a teacher in the third grade.

Kass Thomas:

That would write on the board every day in French, in Boston in the hood

Kass Thomas:

and Roxburgh. rugae typically is Monday. Today is Tuesday.

Kass Thomas:

Bonjour, bonjour, da Lindy Bonjour, Lima de.

Kass Thomas:

And it opened up something in me and awareness that one day,

Kass Thomas:

I wanted to live in Paris, and speak French, you know, and adversity.

Kass Thomas:

My dad was like, when I was in high school, studying French,

Kass Thomas:

what are you doing studying French, Spanish is going to be?

Kass Thomas:

the second language in this country. If you don't speak Spanish,

Kass Thomas:

you won't get a job; you want to be able to find work.

Kass Thomas:

Everyone's going to be speaking Spanish. And when we are feeling like

Kass Thomas:

we are not in line with others, especially people who are mentors,

Kass Thomas:

or parents or teachers, then a lot of times we make a decision

Kass Thomas:

to follow what they think works for us.

Kass Thomas:

And one of the inspirations one of the motivations,

Kass Thomas:

one of the things that I like to encourage people to do is

Kass Thomas:

really to stay connected with yourself and follow your intuition.

Kass Thomas:

You know what I mean? When I use my book, dancing with riches,

Kass Thomas:

I give people in terms of your relationship with yourself with your mind,

Kass Thomas:

you know, what questions can you ask? The answer? Yeah.

Kass Thomas:

Wait for the universe to let you know what is in line with you.

Dr. Brad Miller:

Yeah, well say Well, that's okay. You mentioned about your family

Dr. Brad Miller:

and about a school that was your public school,

Dr. Brad Miller:

which was not exactly worldly oriented, as and how this one teacher

Dr. Brad Miller:

was so instrumental. I take this was not you know, French class.

Dr. Brad Miller:

This was just a regular classroom setting, I assume, right?

Dr. Brad Miller:

Where this teacher just expanded the horizons just by putting a phrase

Dr. Brad Miller:

in French on the on the board. And so, there's some people who spoke into your life.

Dr. Brad Miller:

And you then made some decisions then to kind of break out

Dr. Brad Miller:

of whatever patterns you were in and to do something different.

Dr. Brad Miller:

So, what was what were some of the actions what were some

Dr. Brad Miller:

of the breakouts that you did Cass in order to Change this narrative?

Kass Thomas:

Well, you know, some of the changes that occurred in life

Kass Thomas:

afterwards sometimes oftentimes, and this is something I'd like people to know,

Kass Thomas:

at eight years old, before you were buying everyone else's points of view,

Kass Thomas:

what is it that union that you would like to do?

Kass Thomas:

So, when I was going to college and choosing to go leave Boston, right,

Kass Thomas:

I wasn't even cognitively aware. And remembering that I wanted

Kass Thomas:

to move to live one year in France. But I knew that if I chose to stay in

Kass Thomas:

Boston, that I might live there all of my life.

Kass Thomas:

And it wouldn't necessarily be in line with the global approach to

Kass Thomas:

living that I wanted. So, I went to New York for university

Kass Thomas:

and then did a junior year abroad in Paris, and lived there for a year

Kass Thomas:

and began really connecting with what I knew that I would like to do in life,

Kass Thomas:

and then went back to New York, I wanted to stay in Europe.

Kass Thomas:

And my dad said, you better get back to me or finish college.

Kass Thomas:

So, I didn't finish college stayed in New York, started a career in hospitality

Kass Thomas:

management, working at five-star hotels that Chef concierge,

Kass Thomas:

I even won, you know, best concierge of the year with the way or magazine out of New York.

Kass Thomas:

And at a certain point, Dr. Miller, I was stopped in my tracks.

Kass Thomas:

And I didn't really know what was going on.

Kass Thomas:

But I knew that if I didn't make a change, at that moment,

Kass Thomas:

that my life would not expand that it would be so no, and so predetermined.

Kass Thomas:

And that isn't something that I encourage people to do.

Kass Thomas:

So I went against the odds, I left that career, and I had a six-month period

Kass Thomas:

that really changed my life, you know, when leaving that work,

Kass Thomas:

getting invited to work at other hotels, and refusing

Kass Thomas:

one of my dear friends left the planet died two months, three months later,

Kass Thomas:

and I started traveling and working as an assistant for a jazz singer.

Kass Thomas:

And I came back to Europe, and really felt like it was something that I wanted to do.

Kass Thomas:

So, when I got back to New York, I actually left my first marriage,

Kass Thomas:

didn't have a career didn't have a relationship didn't, it really felt like a moment,

Kass Thomas:

a low moment in my life. But I didn't give him I didn't give up.

Kass Thomas:

And I didn't quit. And not long after that. I connected with a wonderful guy.

Kass Thomas:

I'm here in Rome, Italy, where I am now.

Kass Thomas:

And I moved here, I didn't speak the language. I didn't have a job.

Kass Thomas:

I had money in my bank account. Due to my ex-husband’s, you know, back taxes,

Kass Thomas:

the IRS took that out. So, it was really a period of that was quite stuck.

Kass Thomas:

And no movement, once again, was not willing to give up.

Kass Thomas:

And when you are not willing to give up when you are willing to keep going.

Kass Thomas:

The world will open up something for you. You know, and then amazing.

Kass Thomas:

It's amazing. And it's amazing. Getting different jobs.

Kass Thomas:

I started working, I opened up I met an American here,

Kass Thomas:

I opened up a production company I had never produced before.

Kass Thomas:

But how often are we not willing to really step out of our comfort zone

Kass Thomas:

and explore a new country? Ooh, Korea. Yeah. A new relationship. Yeah.

Dr. Brad Miller:

So, you did in a very, in some ways, extreme way,

Dr. Brad Miller:

especially if I'm understanding your background with your family

Dr. Brad Miller:

and you’re the drawl to stay in those patterns in Boston in New York

Dr. Brad Miller:

and things like that, you know, the pull would be to stay in those situations.

Dr. Brad Miller:

But you took kind of a dramatic break from that and took the risk

Dr. Brad Miller:

without if I'm understanding you correctly cast without not a lot of

Dr. Brad Miller:

identifiable support on the other end and where you took a risk a leap of faith,

Dr. Brad Miller:

you know, without the net out there so to speak, and, but some good stuff happened and

Dr. Brad Miller:

that's what I love that you took the action I'm a real big believer cast

Dr. Brad Miller:

that to have life transformation take place.

Dr. Brad Miller:

I think part of is just physically moving, move your head with your body,

Dr. Brad Miller:

move your situation and try something new to break a pattern. And you did that.

Kass Thomas:

Absolutely. When you're, I mean, thank you for saying that about my heart.

Kass Thomas:

When you're in line with your vibration with the, with your heart,

Kass Thomas:

you know, a lot of people if they're spiritual, they might call

Kass Thomas:

it something else. If you believe in God, you are in line with being

Kass Thomas:

willing to be supported. You know, and you know that thing about

Kass Thomas:

to two footprints on the beach in Somalia like, God, what happened?

Kass Thomas:

You were Yeah, you left me no, actually, I pitch up and carry to Eritrea, yes.

Kass Thomas:

When you are connected with you, you will have that support all the time,

Kass Thomas:

you know, the universe, God, Allah Buddha, have your back. And so

Kass Thomas:

I am always encouraging people, please do not disconnect from you.

Kass Thomas:

And that's what we do, when we're actually trying to follow some, you know,

Kass Thomas:

pedestal or some model role model. But there's no one. Ultimately,

Kass Thomas:

you know, this, there's no one on the planet that does you better than you.

Dr. Brad Miller:

So, you're really acquainting when you when you say connecting with you,

Dr. Brad Miller:

you're connecting this with a real deep, spiritual, momentous inner life experience.

Dr. Brad Miller:

And so, I'd like you to go a little deeper with that, and how you experience

Dr. Brad Miller:

that cast. What I mean by that is, I'm a true believer that, you know,

Dr. Brad Miller:

we take that action, we take that physical risk, but we got to have the

Dr. Brad Miller:

inner life change to have true transformation, as you say, to find your you.

Dr. Brad Miller:

So, what did you do? And then in little bit about, hi, Dan, you teach

Dr. Brad Miller:

and you help folks help other folks get connected to their you, as you stay?

Dr. Brad Miller:

Understand, tell us what about the spiritual direction in your life?

Kass Thomas:

Absolutely. When we are trying to stay so busy,

Kass Thomas:

and this is what I was talking about that six-month period,

Kass Thomas:

we have time to fill the void, you know, and to stay so busy, that we don't

Kass Thomas:

actually, have time to sit down with ourselves and see what it is, that brings us joy,

Kass Thomas:

that allows us to be so present to have a presence with ourselves that

Kass Thomas:

we actually are in tune with intuition with what is the choice,

Kass Thomas:

the moment that if we take it will create more, not only in our lives, right,

Kass Thomas:

but also, for the world, you know, because when we're happy,

Kass Thomas:

and when we are at peace, and we're walking on the street, you know,

Kass Thomas:

the birds are happy, the people are happy, and we are not in resistance to the change,

Kass Thomas:

change is not always easy. So, for me, you know, more than spiritual. I mean,

Kass Thomas:

I guess we do call it spiritual, it's like, really, accessing your sixth sense. of course,

Kass Thomas:

we have eyes and smells and, and tastes in hearing and touch, right.

Kass Thomas:

But we also have this gut feeling this intuition, this connection with

Kass Thomas:

something that is beyond the tangible and visible, and that's the essence

Kass Thomas:

of who we are, you know, so if so, that is something that for me, I tried to,

Kass Thomas:

you know, keep doing. And I was in again, in Rome after, you know,

Kass Thomas:

almost 10 years, and my life was great, lovely home, lovely friends,

Kass Thomas:

lovely husband, lovely food, the food is awesome, and it but there was something missing,

Kass Thomas:

I could not stay busy enough to avoid what was knocking on my door, you know?

Kass Thomas:

And so, I was asking, okay, what else is there that I can have in my life?

Kass Thomas:

That would bring me more ease and more joy and more abundance?

Kass Thomas:

And a few things showed up at that very moment.

Kass Thomas:

And I asked that one was this amazing guy, Dr. Deepak Chopra, came to Italy.

Kass Thomas:

And, you know, I told you that they had my funding had gone even

Kass Thomas:

though my husband would have supported me. I was used to making my own living.

Kass Thomas:

And so, I offer my services to this. These people who are hosting him,

Kass Thomas:

and I brought him my old books that he would sign and also a girlfriend of mine.

Kass Thomas:

who actually was here in Italy living when I first came, I was studying,

Kass Thomas:

she came back to Italy. And she started talking to me about Access Consciousness,

Kass Thomas:

which is not necessarily a spiritual thing, because a lot of times, you know,

Kass Thomas:

spiritual things. Sometimes you have to do it in the right way.

Kass Thomas:

But Access Consciousness is about asking the questions, it's about God's work,

Kass Thomas:

you know, it's about the universe, it's about being connected with you.

Kass Thomas:

So that opened up a whole new world for me. And while I was had a production company,

Kass Thomas:

I was working in television, sales and marketing, I was doing film festivals,

Kass Thomas:

I began inviting people to come to Italy, and share this way of engaging in the world.

Kass Thomas:

And then I started also facilitating and being a coach and traveling the world

Kass Thomas:

and sharing this wisdom with the world in a way.

Dr. Brad Miller:

Yeah, that that's awesome that you had this awakening there for yourself,

Dr. Brad Miller:

and then you've had these opportunities, then to share. And so, let's talk for a minute

Dr. Brad Miller:

about how you do that. For instance, let's talk for a minute, I believe, you know,

Dr. Brad Miller:

there's a there's also when we take is kind of a spiritually emotional experience.

Dr. Brad Miller:

And we have to engage and make a part of implement it, make it integrate, make it a part of our life.

Dr. Brad Miller:

So, what are some of the ways that you do that maybe that you didn't do

Dr. Brad Miller:

and other phases of your life. I've talked about, you know, habits or rituals

Dr. Brad Miller:

or processes that you may be using that you implement now

Dr. Brad Miller:

and part of what you teach, teach others?

Kass Thomas:

Well, you know, I'm so connected with my body, because we chose to be here on this planet,

Kass Thomas:

we have bodies, and I allow my heart, right? To guide me.

Kass Thomas:

So, when I'm making a decision to do something, a choice not to do something,

Kass Thomas:

I ask the question, truth is this, what will create more for me?

Kass Thomas:

And the world if I choose this, and it might be something as simple as a sandwich?

Kass Thomas:

Or a piece of pie, you know, or it might be a job? Or it might be a career?

Kass Thomas:

Or it might be a podcast with Dr. Miller? Yes. I always, always ask,

Kass Thomas:

and there are different ways that people do that, you know, is kinesiology, there's,

Kass Thomas:

you know, people that do muscle testing those people, but I see if when I ask yes,

Kass Thomas:

or no, if my, if it brings a smile, an inner smile and a level of peace to me in

Kass Thomas:

the split second. And so, this is what I invite people to connect with themselves,

Kass Thomas:

with their bodies, with their knowing with their intuition, and to make the choices in

Kass Thomas:

their life that are in line with who they are, and not with what they think they should be doing.

Kass Thomas:

Does that make sense?

Dr. Brad Miller:

It has to do with having this awareness, this cognizance about how you have connected with yourself.

Dr. Brad Miller:

And then now you're going to apply it to how you relate to others.

Dr. Brad Miller:

And this is what I'm picking up on at least your caste. And then.

Dr. Brad Miller:

So, I'd like for us to go in that direction a little bit in terms of the emotional state

Dr. Brad Miller:

that you have with other people, how you serve others in a loving manner,

Dr. Brad Miller:

by teaching by leading by writing books, and so on. So, let's talk a little bit about

Dr. Brad Miller:

what you then offer to other people. What do you teach to people, you’ve?

Dr. Brad Miller:

obviously have come to a place of peace and some energy and some vitality

Dr. Brad Miller:

and some humor about you. And about how you approach life, you've had

Dr. Brad Miller:

some your challenges in life growing up, and you mentioned going through divorce

Dr. Brad Miller:

and so on. Those are all challenging times, moving from one continent to

Dr. Brad Miller:

another, certainly challenged. But now you have a piece of that you're

Dr. Brad Miller:

sharing and teaching with others, because I take it that you care deeply for others

Dr. Brad Miller:

and you want others to have somewhat of the same experience that you've had

Dr. Brad Miller:

or you've seen others have to tell us how you do that through your books or

Dr. Brad Miller:

through your teaching. What are people need? What are you offering to people?

Dr. Brad Miller:

that because you love them so much?

Kass Thomas:

I am offering people a pathway to themselves? You know, we're often trying to go

Kass Thomas:

somewhere to get somewhere to have a success. You know, I remember

Kass Thomas:

when I had done nine weeks in a row going to eight different countries,

Kass Thomas:

eight different cities in seven different countries and what I was on my fifth trip

Kass Thomas:

I was in India I was in the middle of 3d. It's an advanced class, working with bodies.

Kass Thomas:

And I'm sitting there, there's, you know, three days of class with over 75 people.

Kass Thomas:

And I get to the moment where I realize, you know what? I think I'm having success.

Dr. Brad Miller:

Okay. was it kind of an aha, moment for your kind of a lightbulb moment?

Kass Thomas:

Yeah, in my eyes.

Kass Thomas:

So, what is the success that you're having, that shows up in a very different way

Kass Thomas:

than you expected. And if you're willing to not have, and this is what I invite people

Kass Thomas:

to do to acknowledge. Because once you are connected with you, you have a quick way

Kass Thomas:

back to you. And you don't get caught out on a limb, where you might fall

Kass Thomas:

and not know how to get back to you. And so, once you've stepped into your life,

Kass Thomas:

and are willing to see the world from your perspective, right, and each and every

Kass Thomas:

one of us has a unique way of seeing the world. Like I said, there's no one that

Kass Thomas:

does you better than you, and you have your unique brand of magic, you know,

Kass Thomas:

and so, when you're willing to acknowledge that, then you also can step up

Kass Thomas:

and recognize the unique brand of magic that others have, it may seem like

Kass Thomas:

a judgment they're giving you it may seem like a criticism, it may seem like

Kass Thomas:

something that you're not in agreement with. But when you're confident in yourself,

Kass Thomas:

and authentically being you your genuine self, then you can acknowledge

Kass Thomas:

how others are being that way too. And you don't lose yourself. This is what you miss.

Dr. Brad Miller:

Is this what you this is what you mean cast by, if some of your writings you talked

Dr. Brad Miller:

about when you try to get in touch with you, is this what you mean by kind of

Dr. Brad Miller:

changing tracks or changing trajectories in your life, from whatever it was to

Dr. Brad Miller:

something that works? Something that is engaged? So, what are some of

Dr. Brad Miller:

the ways that you teach people to do that you talk about get people getting in

Dr. Brad Miller:

touch with themselves with their you, as their exercises, as their meditation is

Dr. Brad Miller:

their reading? What are some of the ways?

Kass Thomas:

there's, you know, and there is no right way to do it, okay, there's no wrong way to do it,

Kass Thomas:

there's the way that works for you. So, when you wake up in the morning, right,

Kass Thomas:

if you before you start thinking getting on your mobile phone, going through your daily

Kass Thomas:

routine, if you just take a moment, you know, and connect with your body,

Kass Thomas:

put your hand on your hearts, feel your breathing, you know, move your wrists,

Kass Thomas:

just take a few moments to connect with you in the morning. However, whatever works,

Kass Thomas:

some people do meditations in the morning, some people, you know,

Kass Thomas:

do exercises in the morning, I do a little bit of exercise too, but you're just what different

Kass Thomas:give people in my book, also:Kass Thomas:

And whatever it is that works for you, is what you choose, you know,

Dr. Brad Miller:

so, it breaks this, this tag is I'm sorry, go ahead, as I understand you say so use terms like

Dr. Brad Miller:

being stagnant or you know, moving in the water, so you no longer stagnant.

Dr. Brad Miller:

And you also use terminology like dancing, which all these things indicate to me kind of

Dr. Brad Miller:

a movement kind of evolving, a dynamic type of approach,

Dr. Brad Miller:

it's not so much a that's what's a form, not so much a formulaic type of thing,

Dr. Brad Miller:

but a or organic type of experience. And so, tell us what you mean by then the end, first of all,

Dr. Brad Miller:

Am I close at all and what you're about, and this whole dynamic of dancing and so on,

Dr. Brad Miller:

tell us how that plays out with people?

Kass Thomas:

Absolutely. What have you ever been in a prayer? For example? Sure.

Kass Thomas:

And at a certain moment, you feel so connected, and you know that the light is shining on you?

Kass Thomas:

Does that ever show up for you?

Dr. Brad Miller:

Of course, shall you have illuminating moments?

Kass Thomas:

Exactly.

Dr. Brad Miller:

I sometimes I just call them like I said before the aha moment or a, okay, I get it, you know,

Dr. Brad Miller:

I get it.

Kass Thomas:

Absolutely. And that doesn't. And that's just not once in a lifetime.

Kass Thomas:

What if that is every day, you know? So that is something that I invite people to see.

Kass Thomas:

Because when you are being that and connected with you, when you're when you're in

Kass Thomas:

your aha moment when your inner light is shining out.

Kass Thomas:

It is actually illuminating the light in other people and in other projects and in

Kass Thomas:

your business, and in lots of different things.

Dr. Brad Miller:

That's great.

Kass Thomas:

This is something that I continually invite people to do.

Kass Thomas:

And then what you what shows up in your life, if by magic, and are the things

Kass Thomas:

that will continue to open up the road, your Pathways to finding what it is

Kass Thomas:

your various targets, goals, destinies, whatever you want to call that are in life.

Kass Thomas:

And there's no coincidences, there really are no coincidences, this world really is in

Kass Thomas:

constant motion. And if we are not willing to be connected with ourselves, step into us

Kass Thomas:

lives in a different way, then when we step up, and we are stepping out and being seen

Kass Thomas:

in the world, we might not feel at home. But guess what? We all live here, in this world

Kass Thomas:

on planet Earth. So, it is something that we all have in common.

Kass Thomas:

And you, once you are willing to recognize that step into your life, step up, recognize

Kass Thomas:

who you are, and step out in that way, be seen, be heard, and be willing to see and hear?

Kass Thomas:

others. You never feel alone. You never have been, you never will be right.

Kass Thomas:

And as you know,

Dr. Brad Miller:

with you, and found your youth, and you found that

Kass Thomas:

you'll never be a failure; you'll never be a failure. As Nelson Mandela said,

Kass Thomas:

you can't, you can't lose. You either win, or you learn something. And that's what I have

Kass Thomas:

so many of my life experiences, as you mentioned, that I share with people and then

Kass Thomas:

show them what are the questions you can ask. And if you're willing to really activate

Kass Thomas:

your genius, your unique brand of magic, your unique Ness, then you will always, never

Kass Thomas:

fail, never lose, you either win, or you learn something

Dr. Brad Miller:

that is awesome. Well, you've shared your as helping people find their magic,

Dr. Brad Miller:

you've shared it with a lot of folks through a couple books now. And your latest book is

Dr. Brad Miller:

dancing with riches. But that means you've also worked with folks, both personally. And

Dr. Brad Miller:

through your writing and through your things. You're offering your website. And I'm

Dr. Brad Miller:

really interested in a story a testimony, or maybe someone or some situation that

Dr. Brad Miller:

you've worked with, where you've seen somebody who was a little bit floundering, a

Dr. Brad Miller:

little bit lost. And you had some part to play or something that you've taught or been a

Dr. Brad Miller:

part of this helped him find where you are finding your magic places you have said here,

Dr. Brad Miller:

tell us a story about a person that you've had some impact on.

Kass Thomas:

I'm not sure why this particular one, there's so many, but this particular one shows up

Kass Thomas:

once I was in, in London at an expo. And we were offering people, you know, little

Kass Thomas:

sessions on Access Virus. And there was a beautiful gal there from Colombia. She was

Kass Thomas:

living in London at the time, and she felt like she was not as potent and as powerful as

Kass Thomas:

we were the other people there. And she said, okay, I'm going to go now. And I said, Are

Kass Thomas:

you kidding? You're going to go, people are first attracted to the visual what they can see,

Kass Thomas:

you're gorgeous. You're young, your sexy stay here, you can be the invitation for

Kass Thomas:

people to come and try out the bars. She said, really? I said, absolutely. And she didn't

Kass Thomas:

go away. She stayed. And from that moment on, she began creating her career, she

Kass Thomas:

began teaching the people and traveling around the world. She's now married and

Kass Thomas:

living in Australia, and very successful working with. We call them excellent, but they're

Kass Thomas:

kids with autism, with adults with autism as well. And with attention deficit disorders,

Kass Thomas:

and really inviting them to recognize that what they have defined as a limitation is

Kass Thomas:

actually, a capacity. So that I don't know why that went.

Dr. Brad Miller:

Well, that's, well, that that's an awesome story. were you seeing someone who was?

Dr. Brad Miller:

lacking confidence and lacking a connection to that magic spot? You know, some folks

Dr. Brad Miller:

people with that in your book, dancing with riches is helpful to people to do this dance

Dr. Brad Miller:

to do what they need to do. And so, folks want to find out more about you, Cass, how

Dr. Brad Miller:
