E120 - You can't ignore your past! Mental Fitness for men with Greg Gillies

What does it take to be a real man? Life Coach for Men, Greg Gillies, knows that it’s not what we usually think. It’s not about material success, business goal achievement, or a facebook narrative. He believes we need to clear the programming from our past so we can embrace the best of who we can be.

Greg shares his own downward spiral from successful executive and business owner to numbed out alcohol abuser through to renewed and liberated healthy male leader. He reveals how kinesiology and quantum matrix therapy helped clear his unconscious past beliefs so he could  choose more powerful ones.

We take a deep dive into sympathetic nervous system dominance, the body’s natural healing system, releasing negative emotions and beliefs from our past, resolving conflicts in our brain.

E117 - You gotta love what you do - the entrepreneurial mindset with Khaysan Kimberlin

Khaysan grew up watching her parents work hard to set up a caravan park from the ground up. This sparked the courage to start her own business at the age of 24, which she grew successfully before a tumultuous exit some years later. Discovering she is not a great long-term employee, (she gets bored), Khaysan dove into a new business venture called Project Athlete which blends mindset, nutrition, and health for personal transformation. 

We explore what she learned from her parents (all business takes time, you gotta love it to make it through hard times, and no bad times last forever); what she learned after rising and falling quickly in business for herself (comfortable breeds complacency and laziness); how she bucked social programming to embrace the entrepreneurial life; mindset secrets from professional athletes (passion fuels everything, stay coachable, and things happen for a reason - get back on the horse after a fall); how her definition of success changed from being all about the money, to money being just a byproduct of doing something that sets your soul on fire; three mindset principles for success (awareness of habits, what triggers good and bad habits, and time for being patient).

E116 - Excellence is a daily commitment, interview with Olympian Dan Collins

“You can be excellent, but not have excellence in your life.” Four time Olympian Dan Collins says his biggest failure was his proudest moment - it allowed him to become the man he is. Competing at the highest level in sports teaches us a thing or two about performance. But Dan discovered something more than that. He discovered that elevation of consciousness is the highest end game for any human, that mastery of emotions is pivotal for any endeavour, and that physical health is the foundation for all things. In this intimate and open conversation, Dan shares his nightly journaling habit, his ‘mindless’ exercise practice, meditation for mindful stillness, how mastery of big moments comes down to breathwork, how practicing stepping into big moments helps us prepare for even bigger moments, what exactly is a ‘big moment’ (it’s the goal driven commitment we make to ourselves, our family, and the people we serve), how big moments are the threshold of what you are striving for and who you are aiming to become, how at the ‘edge of limits is where life happens’.

Dan also shares his three cornerstone principles: developing consciousness and personal accountability, embracing excellence as a never ending journey, and LOVE - be vulnerable enough to give and receive love and savour love of life itself. Dan believes we need both a FIXED mindset (concrete goals to strive for) and a GROWTH mindset (practicing excellence as a never ending habit). What is he most proud of? Longevity of his excellence journey - the tests get bigger as you get bigger as a human.
