How To Define And Build Successful, Quality Relationships with Pablo Rosario - 016
Pablo has spent the last 5 years as the program director of an international personal development company and designed conferences on the topics of leadership, communication, confidence, dating and more.  Pablo has a B.A. in Psychology and completed over 100 hours at the official coaching training school of Tony Robbins. He is also a certified NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) Practitioner.  He specializes in working with men looking to live a more complete and extraordinary life.  Noteworthy questions: If we struggle with personal relationships, does that affect our professional relationships? (22:02) Where do we find quality relationships, personal and professional? (26:10) What are the general blindspots in relationships? (36:00) How does body language affect our approach? (42:37) Do we have our own unique strengths when it comes to energy and relationships? (43:41) Key takeaways To become better at relationships, you have to become a better version of yourself. It takes incredible bravery and courage to say ‘I am not feeling strong today’ or ‘I am scared’. Define success on your own terms. This includes defining what a relationship means to you. The key to having a successful relationship is communication. The reason we stray away from communication is because we don’t know how to do it.

Raising Your Standards And Moving The World Forward Through Storytelling with Mimi Kalinda - 015
Mimi Kalinda is originally from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Rwanda and raised in South Africa and she is the Co-Founder and Managing Director of the Africommunications Group (ACG).  She is an expert in storytelling and is excellent at what she does. Presidents of nations call her to help to rebrand their countries. Her vision is to change the African narrative and change what Africans think about themselves.  Noteworthy questions: Your superpower is storytelling. Where does that come from? (10:04) What do you mean when you refer to the African narrative? (15:13) Why should we raise our standards? (20:00) How can we shift our perception about past experiences? (27:35) How can we use storytelling to move ourselves and the world forward? (30:17) Key takeaways Someone’s superpower is not only what they do well but what speaks to them, their mission. On the surface we can shift behavior, but it won’t be sustainable unless you shift perception. If you are told a story over and over again, not only do you start to believe the story, but you start to behave according to the characteristics which that story assigns you. You become the person people say you are, if you allow yourself to buy into that. Focus on being excellent. It will shift how people see you, engage with you and how they need you in their space. Building your personal brand equity will have ripple effects in your life. You are, to a large extent, in charge of how you show up in the world and how people experience you from a reputation standpoint.

Your Mindset Underpins Your Business And Your Mental Health with Tristan Wright - 013
Tristan defines himself as a business sherpa and he is based in Melbourne with a background in leadership coaching and applied business. Unlike many coaches and consultants, however, Tristan has actually built a business – from an ad-hoc startup in his 3 square-meter kitchen to a 7-figure operation with staff and suppliers around the globe. In doing so, He’s acquired first-hand experience in everything related to business. He has survived the personal aspects of entrepreneurship as well. He’s let the allure of success (and fear of failure) consume every waking minute, and learned the hard lessons seldom taught by anyone. Noteworthy questions: How did you get awareness of and eliminate your mental health issues? (10:52) What is the shiny object syndrome and how do we escape it? (19:40) How do we find clarity? (20:27) How do we deal with perfectionism in business? (25:15) How do we deal with not having energy or enough time for our business / life?

Break things down into bite-size chunks and deal with it piece by piece. It’s part of life to feel pain. It also shows that we are human. The number one step in business coaching is mindset coaching, it underpins everything else. Start with the end in mind when you are thinking of goals and your vision.

Most of his strategies that he teaches goes beyond business and is interwoven with life and personal development. In 2012, Jack started a coaching school in Australia called the Australian Institute of coaching and sold it in 2015. It’s still remains one of the most successful life coaching schools in Australia. His journey started with a Tony Robbins event so have a listen through to listen to his exciting story, background and insights! Noteworthy questions: Why start with life first and then business?

(22:35) What is the best way to stretch our thinking? (24:38) What is a spiritual contract? (29:20) How do you break through fear and use it to our advantage? (38:41) Key takeaways Curiosity is the start of the process when finding your passion. The reason you care what other people think is because you are misaligned. Those who are finding incongruencies in you are actually just finding incongruencies in themselves. We just act as mirrors. The toughest challenge is being able to be you and not listen to everyone else. You should never put a mentor on a pedestal, they are human just like you. Once you put them on a pedestal, you’ll start to see insecurities and incongruencies.

Some questions asked Why transform our thinking? (09:15) How do we put our vision into practical steps? (15:56) What is a leader and why should we be working on our leadership skills?

How To Get The Mental Edge And Become Dangerous Again with Erik Kruger - 007
Erik Kruger is a keynote speaker, author, and mental performance coach and originally started his career as a physiotherapist. He also hosts the Coached which is loaded with advice on how to approach with higher performance. He works with leaders and organizations to help them improve thinking and behavior in the context of high-performance, mental toughness, and assertiveness. He is the founder of The Mental Performance Lab and author of Acta Non Verba. The way that Erik describes and frames things really helped me to understand concepts better and to make them practical. Erik is very good at articulating ideas and solutions. He is highly focused and passionate on the notion of making people dangerous again. If you want to know what he means by that, just click play! Some questions asked What does our inner game mean? (9:11) Why is it important to develop our inner game? (11:20) Why do we get stuck in our head? (17:02) Do we need to shift our identity to create more success in our life? (19:20) How do we extract our best thinking and get the most out of our current mindset? (22:33) What is the currency of high performance? (37:25) Key takeaways Introspection is a valuable tool but it lacks input from others. You need to use different sets of feedback to uncover your blind spots. Identity is extremely closely related to how we show up in the world. One of the biggest reasons people don’t move is because of the uncertainty. Self-awareness is internal and external. Getting feedback from inside and also from the people and the world.

You Are Always Greater Than What You Think with Warren Munitz - 005
Sometimes we are not sure how to navigate ourselves in life and then the simple answer to the confusion is to ask for help. In this episode I spoke to Warren Munitz, Executive Coach, Integration Therapist, Master NLP Coach & Trainer, Hypnotherapist & Founder of Integrative Coaching. Warren has been in the field of personal development and self-mastery for over 20 years.  In this time, he studied many different forms of meditation, yoga, philosophy, empowerment, psychotherapies and esoteric paths.  Some questions I asked: Typical week for personal development & executive coaches? (3:32) Why did you become a coach? (5:14) Do we go at life together or go alone? (9:30) Do we need goals? (13:50) Why do lose motivation or encouragement towards goal achievement? (24:49) Do beliefs control our life?  (38:33) Do we have infinite potential? (53:21) Key takeaways: You can only reach as high as the team you have around you. The journey is not one or the other approach. It’s an integrative approach. Wisdom is the ability to hold two opposing perspectives at the same time and not judging either Be consistent when you want to create and achieve goals In the process of innovation you need to delay premature closure. The longer you delay closure, the more innovation you can get. You need to tear down the beliefs that have been shielding ultimate reality from you.

The Secret To Happiness Has To Do With The War On Comfort Zones with Martelize Brink - 004
Martelize woke up one morning with pain in her legs. Doctors suspected a virus, infection or inflammation in her spinal cord and this left her paralyzed. This all happened by the age of 14. Martelize has been in a wheelchair for over 20 years due to this illness she experienced as a teen. Through her seemingly discomforting situation, she felt complete freedom and joy and chose to look at life through the lens of optimism. In 2012 she started the Pink Penguin project in support of charities that challenge her outside of her comfort zone. Via this channel she’s undertaken a number of extreme adventures including kayaking to Robben Island and visiting the forests of Rwanda to see gorillas, all without the use of her legs and that is what inspires me.  Some questions I asked: How can we get beyond our life restrictions? (10:36) What does it mean to have war on comfort zones? (18:36) Why do people think and behave the way they do? (24:38) What are your fears?

(43:09) Key takeaways: Go through troublesome times one step at a time Use stubbornness to your advantage and move forward in life  Say yes to opportunities without knowing how you will get it done  The secret to happiness has to do with the war on comfort zones  You absolutely need to challenge yourself outside of your comfort zone to grow  Take the necessary steps, although they might be scary, or be unhappy for the rest of your life STRUGGLE is one of the best character builders in the world Reach out to Martelize: Website: http://www.martelizebrink.co.za  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/martelizebrink/  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MartelizeBrinkRSG/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/MartelizeBrink HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT THE PODCAST? -> This show grows and impacts people only because of awesome people like you!

Focusing and working constantly towards a big goal helps you silence your excuses and make you forget your current problems or situation. Envision yourself with the top class players or participants. It could very much help you endure what you are doing. It is not always about winning. It is about enjoying the journey on your way there.

The Key To Life Is Living Your Highest Values And Understanding How They Work with Nershen Pillay - 002
Nershen Pillay is a Demartini Method Facilitator for Dr. John Demartini and a human behavior specialist who researches quantum physics, cell biology, neurology, brain chemistry and more, all in the pursuit of understanding which laws govern us. In this episode we discuss how and why we should live a life according to our highest values. Some questions I asked: How to empower someone who is stuck in 9-5? (14:36) How are we causing our suffering through positivity? (26:53) Do we need to view both the positive and the negative side of things? (33:57) How do we stay in balance? (39:02) How can we break a habit? (42:43) Key takeaways: Cells are more responsive to energy and our thinking than to the actual material in the body. With medicine, only 10% of the receptors on your cells respond to chemicals. Your genetics get triggered by an outside influence, it’s called epigenetics. It is far more influential than your genes than your physiology than your actual genes. The key to inspiration at work: look at the job traits or tasks that you physically do and link them to what’s most important to you in your life, your priorities or values. There lies massive power in gratitude You get what you are, not what you want. If you are lacking, you get more lack. The quality of life is based on the quality of questions you ask yourself Reach out to Nershen: LinkedIn: https://za.linkedin.com/in/nershenpillay Website: http://nershenpillay.com HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT THE PODCAST? -> This show grows and impacts people only because of awesome people like you!

Do The Things That Set Your Soul On Fire with Andrew Patterson - 001
Andrew Patterson dedicated himself to a larger cause after being retrenched from his seemingly specialized job. He climbed Table mountain every day for an entire year and donated all the money raised to charity. We discuss why he did it, what we can learn from it and how people can commit themselves to something bigger to achieve better results. Some questions I asked: Do people need to experience pain before changing their lives? (26:05) What does the word Ubuntu mean? (30:00) Advice for people to listen to their inner voice? (34:03) How to stay consistent and persist with your endeavors? (40:05) What can people do to broaden their perspectives? (59:46) Key takeaways: People procrastinate because they lack clarity on what they want to do or if they do know what to do then they procrastinate because they don’t know how to get there If you do not have a purpose then it’s easy to hit the snooze button in the morning when you actually need to get up early The pain in which you are living now needs to be greater than the pain of trying to get to where you want to go in order to make a big change in your life Just because you are not responsible for someone else’s suffering does not mean you can’t be part of the solution Do the things that put your soul on fire! Ideas come from within. Ideas come to you with a specific purpose and you should act on them. All you need to know is that you have all the resources within you to ACT on the idea. It’s not that we don’t listen to our inner voice but rather that we get caught up in other people’s opinions. People don’t see the full puzzle, they only see a piece of the puzzle.  Reach out to Andrew:  IG: https://www.instagram.com/365ubuntuclimbs/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/andrew-patterson-76a26131 HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT THE PODCAST? -> This show grows and impacts people only because of awesome people like you!
