A Tribute to Rik Mayall

We all have heroes. Whether it’s a relative, friend or someone from TV, our heroes have the power to shape our future decisions and guide who we become. 
In this emotional finale to the Mi365 Podcast series, we hear from our host Pete Cohen about one of his heroes – actor/comedian Rik Mayall, made famous during the 80s with hit British sitcoms including Black Adder and The Young Ones.
Pete describes the duality of our minds – from the inspired genius that exists within us all to the self-limiting duck that stops us from expressing our true selves. This balance is governed by the quality of our thoughts, with Pete explaining the link between thoughts, emotions, feelings and the quality of our lives. 
By changing our thoughts, we can change our lives – especially by using the power of humour to take back control from the duck and live life on our own terms. Rik – an excellent user of humour – outlined four key principles which Pete contextualises into our modern, stressful environment:
1.    All men are equal. No one can be your genuine superior.
2.    Your future is as bright as you make it.
3.    Change is a constant of life – never lose your wisdom
4.    If you want to live a complete and full life, you have to be free. Love is the answer.
Join us as we conclude the Mi365 Podcast series with an epic tribute to a true genius – we all have the ability to have impact and bring light into others’ lives.

    Loved this podcast, remember well the Young Ones , & Kevin Turvey! Definitely my era, they were so vibrant & refreshing their impact was huge because of their philosophy; perfect antidote for troubling times in the 80’s.
    Love also, humour as a weapon…& have been doing exactly that to change my energies & thoughts recently..it is so powerful. We are all equal & LOVE is the answer; the essential key to freedom. Thanks for this Pete, really made me smile XX👊👍😊😁😀
