Interview Part I Part 2 Will feature in a future issue of 3 in 1 The Man s Voice Pablo Giacopelli 1 Thank you so much for taking the time to answer our questions Pablo firstly how did you come to know Jesus as your Lord and Savior I woke up to the reality of Christ for the first time when I was 19 years old It was through a new friend I made during my first year in university the great thing about this story is that this cat was not only gay but also an addict to over the counter drugs He struggled with depression and his behavior was as flawed as anything that I had seen up until that point in my life Yet with all of this baggage on his back I could see through his eyes a genuine love and affirmation I had never seen or felt before After several conversations with this man I began to see through his words that there was someone greater than him reaching out to me through him These days as I look back I realize that the ferocious love and affirmation I felt when I was with him was in fact that Jewish man they call Jesus Like him I too was deeply wounded from many traumatic experiences I had lived through since leaving my home at the age of thirteen while I tried to gain the approval and affirmation of those closest to me through my tennis career This attempt to silence my own wounds through what I did and how successful I became was transferred to trying to please a God whose image in my mind was as much the same as the one of my natural father This life based on performance measured by what I did and how well I did it ruled much of my schizophrenic relationship with God for many years It wasn t until I reached my mid thirties and had gone through a traumatic divorce that I began to have a second awakening Slowly but surely I began to understand and see with the eyes of my heart who the God of my life really was and how well He loved me Since that day my life has been transformed into a journey where I have started to shed my false self that I had worked so hard to build over the years covering my shame and pain as I discovered my real and true identity made in the image and likeness of God You see the mind can only take us so far and like any muscle in our body it eventually tires and runs out of energy interrupting the flow of talent and life the heart doesn t its energy and resources are unlimited and they can be fully tapped into if it is whole and not wounded Once a person taps into it they enter into a place that is known in sports as the zone This is where one loses the need to control and manipulate everything and everyone and instead begins to walk and play in the present moment with all of their talent no longer worried about the outcome or result For this reason it doesn t matter what kind of coaching I am doing my approach is always the same though of course I tailor how I express it according to the person I am coaching For instance when I was coaching tennis my understanding of the game and the mechanics of the strokes was also extremely important however at the level I worked at the difference after all the hard work had been done came down to who was able to express their heart better on the court Leading someone into a journey of self discovery is not an easy task and one that can have many twists and turns This is why I believe that coaching is an art and not a profession Ultimately it is an expression of your own journey of discovery and self development as it is very difficult to lead and walk with someone into a reality or place you have never been yourself before This is why an effective coach knows that it is not about the destination as much as it about the process He understands that success is shy and the more he and the pupil focus on it the bigger the likelihood that it will never fully be a part or join their journey in the way it can when we don t focus on it 3 What is the difference between faith and self belief and is it important to possess both Faith believes that what one desires happens for others belief understands that it can happen to us The greater the understanding an individual possesses of who they truly are the more confidence they will walk into the tennis court with for instance life is a mirror that exposes to us at what stage of our discovery process we are in The way we react to the adversity we find in both of these paths will ultimately be aimed at the belief we have regarding our identity and self esteem This is why those who overcome are those that continue to run walk or even crawl as they understand that deep within themselves lies the answer to whatever they are facing those that don t show that they are yet to either begin this journey or are only at the very beginning of it Ultimately our faith and belief in God and the discovery of who He really is can only happen when we at the same time undertake the same journey of discovering who we really are Too many of us focus on just discovering God and spend very little if no time at all in discovering our real selves hence the lack of faith I believe that it is impossible to discover who God really is without also at the same time discovering who we really are If we are serious about experiencing the confidence Jesus had instead of our own man made arrogance then these two journeys need to happen parallel to each other 2 You are a sports coach as well as life coach What is the difference if any and what is the key ingredient to helping them find success A coach is someone who has a different perspective to the person they are coaching He is able to see things that the client is not able to as they are directly involved in either their career or6life Ultimately for an individual to reach and maximize their potential they must step into a MAGAZINIOUS

Interview Part II This word please in the original text means that there will be a turning Now when we as humans turn we do it towards was is the most like us in proximity This means that what Dad was saying was the following To Eve Pablo Giacopelli 1 Thank you so much for taking the time to answer our questions Pablo What does the bible teach us about being the best we can be and why do you think it is important to strive to achieve one s goals I am not so sure that the bible teaches us to be the best we can be as much as it encourages us to follow Jesus to the very depths of our being where we can discover or true self that shares our identity and likeness with God I believe when we focus on being the best we can be our journey becomes one of performance The danger with this is that if we are not careful sooner or later we fall into the trap of measuring who we are and our worth according to the results we manage to achieve Everything we experience we do so with a mindset of getting it right or wrong winning and loosing This approach invites anxiety entitlement and fear into our path which are then responsible for dividing us by focusing one part of us on a result and the other on our ability When we undertake a journey of discovery where we see everything as an opportunity to discover something new about God ourselves and life we then create an environment where hope grace love and faith can thrive Here in this place we understand that the results of our lives belong ultimately to God and that our job is to stay present and simply manage and keep our lives like Adam was charged to manage and keep the Garden of Eden If someone wants to see the unprecedented take place in his or her life and profession then this is the way I have discovered is more likely to happen 2 Your book Holding on Loosely is inspirational and encouraging do you agree that individuals tend to hold back and are almost afraid to realize their true potential I believe that most of us don t struggle with going out into the unknown as much as we struggle with leaving behind what we already know and feel safe with This phenomenon often interferes with our journey of discovery as it leads us to remain anchored to the beach of tradition in the shores of familiarity Now is very important that we all understand that this problem is nothing new and it is not something that we alone have to face This is the consequence of what happened in the Garden of Eden all those years ago and continues to happen today Eve all the underlying premises you need to live a healthy and whole life that you were receiving from me from your heart you are now going to turn and look to your husband to deliver them to you This is because you came from Adam and so this is what is the closest in proximity to you To Adam Adam all the underlying premises you need to live a healthy and whole life that you were receiving from me from your heart you are now going to turn and look to the ground to deliver them to you This again is because you came from the ground and so this is what is the closest in proximity to you And so Eve turns to Adam and demands these things from him to which he replies I am not God Adam equally as he turns to the ground and demands these things from it the ground replies like he did to Eve I am not God Now to help us see this event all those years ago at play in the world that we all live in today we only have to look at the place women look to find their identity and that is from the man they are with and how much they are liked and loved by him Equally men today they look to their careers and work to get a clue of their identities which is in essence the ground they work on What we need to understand is that this is exactly what the Gospel Jesus came to share with us is all about and was meant to break You see Jesus understood what was going on and why it was happening He knew that what had happened in Genesis 3 in the garden of Eden when Adam and Eve had become disconnected from the reality within their hearts was still affecting us all He understood that as long as they remained disconnected from their hearts they would seek to find their identity outside of them This move would prevent them from fulfilling their potential and who they were designed to be originally This is why is there is a word I believe I would use to describe the message of the Gospel that word would be the word return Return to the reality of the identity that is within your heart Return to the way it was in the Garden on Eden before things took a left turn We need to understand that the only way we will ever maximize our potential will be from that place within our hearts where we share our identity with God The battle we fight everyday is not against the enemy but against that false reality we build outside ourselves where we try and find our identity and indirectly try and fulfill our potential Jesus called us to follow him so we could journey to that place within us where the Kingdom of Heaven is and all the magic happens Holding On Loosely is the way I began this journey or returning It is my personal spiritual journal of what God showed me needed to happen in my life and I believe in the lives of others so that we can be loosed into this new path where we will have a very realistic chance of discovering who we really are in Him and in the process begin to maximize the potential that has been deposited within our lives I will explain In Genesis chapter 3 after things are not so good in the garden God tells the woman You ll want to please your husband but he ll lord it over you 6 MAGAZINIOUS Nov Dec 2010 MAGAZINIOUS Nov Dec 2010 6 MAGAZINIOUS Nov Dec 2010 7

3 How does this book enable us to let go and let God Most of us live our lives mainly from our minds This approach to life means that we spend most of our time here on earth absent from what is actually happening to and around us In the book I explain how this works how it shows up in our lives and what the alternative looks like It is important to understand that the only place we are able to hear and sense Gods presence is in the present He is an eternal being and as we all know in eternity there is no time apart from the present moment This is why when God introduced himself to Moses by the burning bush he didn t say I am the great I was or the great I will but instead the great I AM the one who is always present Like him we too are eternal and so when we enter the dimension of our heart living in the present moment becomes possible Most of us struggle with fully loosening our grip over our lives because we don t understand or truly know God and his nature When we live present lives this begins to change as we become aware and understand how much we are loved by him which produces a new momentum of trust in our lives that then enables us to hold on loosely to our lives and all its attachments and hold on tight to His hand as he leads us forward and inward Book Review Pablo Giacopelli Holding on Loosely Review by 3 in 1 Walking in the Light Ministries Int Genre Non fiction Format Softback 4 How do you balance you work ministry and family life I struggled with this for many years and in fact suffered great consequences in my life because of the lack of balance I experienced when it came to managing how I lived it More recently I have found that the best way in my life to approach the above scenario is by focusing on living out of the real Pablo that is within my heart This has enabled me to remain present and be able to address the present moment as required So in other words I don t stop being a father or a husband when I am working and neither do I stop being a coach or a minister when I am with my family I am coming to see my life not as a catalog of different labels expressed independently from each other but instead Pablo expressing the life that is within him in an uncensored real and raw fashion all of the time no matter where he finds himself This way has also helped me to find immense harmony in arranging my time and commitments as I trust God to bring only the assignments he wants me to fulfill instead of me going out to try and fill my diary with as much work as I can find I must be honest and tell you that my life today is not only impacting more people than it ever has before but it is also as balanced as it has ever been baring of course any unexpected events that might disrupt this flow like sickness sudden events etc 5 You are a motivational speaker do you also take seminars or workshops Most of my work with wider audiences happens through seminars and workshops Here is where I find I am able to express best what I carry within me I enjoy doing weekend retreats and events where people and I are able to interact with each other At the end of these weekends I am also normally asked to speak at the Sunday services which I also enjoy Another area of my work that I also love to do is coaching people around the world on a one to one basis online mainly through Skype The joy of seeing people wake up to the reality of who they truly are and seeing them begin to express this new reality through their lives is something very few other things can match Lastly one thing I am very excited about as it is having a great impact on many souls is a new online course I have recently released for both people in leadership positions as well as those of us that lead in our lives unofficially every day The course is an in depth 11 week interactive journey around the theme of Holding On Loosely The course can be taken either by people on their own or together with me through one on one sessions each week You are born into a world and you aim to make the most of it Whether you are a person of ministry an athlete a business person homemaker every human being has a desire to achieve life goals to succeed in life and fulfill their dreams Some of us will achieve with perservence and struggles for others failure is not an option and it comes easier for others it is necessary for them to be manipulative in order to achieve However I believe that there is not one single person amongst us who could state that they are the person that they truly need to be as opposed to the person they want to be Through the testimony of Pablo Giacopelli you will discover that it is actually possible to achieve both in life through the love and completeness of God That is the challenge that I believe this book brings out in the reader more than anything else are you prepared to let go and let God Pablo Giacopelli offers a way through Holding on Loosely a path if you like to successfully overcoming the things that prevent us from letting go This unique and wonderful book will not only hold your attention but in a very troubled world enable you to believe that you are much more than just flesh and

3 How does this book enable us to let go and let God Most of us live our lives mainly from our minds This approach to life means that we spend most of our time here on earth absent from what is actually happening to and around us In the book I explain how this works how it shows up in our lives and what the alternative looks like It is important to understand that the only place we are able to hear and sense Gods presence is in the present He is an eternal being and as we all know in eternity there is no time apart from the present moment This is why when God introduced himself to Moses by the burning bush he didn t say I am the great I was or the great I will but instead the great I AM the one who is always present Like him we too are eternal and so when we enter the dimension of our heart living in the present moment becomes possible Most of us struggle with fully loosening our grip over our lives because we don t understand or truly know God and his nature When we live present lives this begins to change as we become aware and understand how much we are loved by him which produces a new momentum of trust in our lives that then enables us to hold on loosely to our lives and all its attachments and hold on tight to His hand as he leads us forward and inward Book Review Pablo Giacopelli Holding on Loosely Review by 3 in 1 Walking in the Light Ministries Int Genre Non fiction Format Softback 4 How do you balance you work ministry and family life I struggled with this for many years and in fact suffered great consequences in my life because of the lack of balance I experienced when it came to managing how I lived it More recently I have found that the best way in my life to approach the above scenario is by focusing on living out of the real Pablo that is within my heart This has enabled me to remain present and be able to address the present moment as required So in other words I don t stop being a father or a husband when I am working and neither do I stop being a coach or a minister when I am with my family I am coming to see my life not as a catalog of different labels expressed independently from each other but instead Pablo expressing the life that is within him in an uncensored real and raw fashion all of the time no matter where he finds himself This way has also helped me to find immense harmony in arranging my time and commitments as I trust God to bring only the assignments he wants me to fulfill instead of me going out to try and fill my diary with as much work as I can find I must be honest and tell you that my life today is not only impacting more people than it ever has before but it is also as balanced as it has ever been baring of course any unexpected events that might disrupt this flow like sickness sudden events etc 5 You are a motivational speaker do you also take seminars or workshops Most of my work with wider audiences happens through seminars and workshops Here is where I find I am able to express best what I carry within me I enjoy doing weekend retreats and events where people and I are able to interact with each other At the end of these weekends I am also normally asked to speak at the Sunday services which I also enjoy Another area of my work that I also love to do is coaching people around the world on a one to one basis online mainly through Skype The joy of seeing people wake up to the reality of who they truly are and seeing them begin to express this new reality through their lives is something very few other things can match Lastly one thing I am very excited about as it is having a great impact on many souls is a new online course I have recently released for both people in leadership positions as well as those of us that lead in our lives unofficially every day The course is an in depth 11 week interactive journey around the theme of Holding On Loosely The course can be taken either by people on their own or together with me through one on one sessions each week You are born into a world and you aim to make the most of it Whether you are a person of ministry an athlete a business person homemaker every human being has a desire to achieve life goals to succeed in life and fulfill their dreams Some of us will achieve with perservence and struggles for others failure is not an option and it comes easier for others it is necessary for them to be manipulative in order to achieve However I believe that there is not one single person amongst us who could state that they are the person that they truly need to be as opposed to the person they want to be Through the testimony of Pablo Giacopelli you will discover that it is actually possible to achieve both in life through the love and completeness of God That is the challenge that I believe this book brings out in the reader more than anything else are you prepared to let go and let God Pablo Giacopelli offers a way through Holding on Loosely a path if you like to successfully overcoming the things that prevent us from letting go This unique and wonderful book will not only hold your attention but in a very troubled world enable you to believe that you are much more than just flesh and bone and that with God s help you can be all that you ever wanted and more importantly become the person God designed you to be The old sayings more haste less speed and if you try too hard it won t
