84: Stopping Self-Destructive Behaviour with Dr Glenn Livingston

This was such an interesting conversation I had with Dr Glenn Livingston.

Glenn is a veteran psychologist who now specialises in ‘food psychology’ and helping people overcome self-destructive habits and binge eating.

In fact, he’s written a bestselling book on the subject called ‘Never Binge Again’, which came about after getting past his own demons with food and overeating.

But the principles of the book aren’t just applicable to food and eating habits, they’re very relevant to overcoming any kind of self-destructive behaviour.

So this is what we talked about on this week’s podcast.

In The Episode, We Talk About…

  • How Dr Glenn overcame his own battle with food addiction to master his eating habits.
  • The anatomical parts of your brain it’s key to understand to end self-destructive behaviour.
  • The importance of understanding and appreciating ‘delayed gratification’.
  • How to deal with uncertainty, self-doubt and low self-esteem.
  • How to construct a plan for success in anything that sits right with your own brain.
  • A simple mind trick to deal with ‘cravings’ to do or eat things not in line with our goals.
  • Why a happy life may NOT come through loving every part of yourself unconditionally.
  • How to recover from a mistake like a badass and not get bogged down by it.
  • The purpose of pain and how to use it to your advantage.
  • Dealing with other people who hold you back from achieving what you want.

83: Operation Sort My F**king Life Out

For me, the past couple of years have been about trying to just sort my fucking life out.

I’ve had various moments where I’ve just had to sit myself down and be honest about the results I’m seeing in my life (or lack of them).

And attempt to analyse what seems to be missing or imbalanced so I can move forward and do something about it.

Effectively, I’ve just been trying to workout what happiness looks like to me… and how to achieve it.

So in this episode, I just wanted to share my thoughts on this.

And explain the areas of life that I believe need to be balanced in order to feel happy.

In the Episode, I Talk About…

  • Why being honest with ourselves is monumentally important to get out of feeling stuck and unhappy.
  • How to stop making bullshit excuses to ourselves and step out of your comfort zone.
  • My latest moment of ‘self-honesty’ and how it’s resulted in me feeling much happier.
  • The five areas I like to review and keep balanced in life.
  • Why money isn’t everything, but is still a necessary part to your happiness.
  • How to add more meaning and purpose to your life without a sudden career shake up.
  • My keys to combatting loneliness.

Joe is CEO of Ajax Union, a massively successful digital marketing agency based in New York and also runs his own blog, YouTube channel and podcast.

So that’s what we talk about in today’s episode.

In The Episode, We Talk About…

  • The importance of being in control of your morning if you want to be happy and productive.
  • Why it’s vital to decipher your own ‘blind spots’ to move up to your next level.
  • The key differences between declaring and committing.
  • The three core limiting beliefs Joe says everyone must push past in order to achieve wild success.
  • How to use ‘improv’ to improve your performance in all areas of life.
  • Why relationships are at the heart of leading an awesome life.
  • The importance of seeing relationships as transformational, as opposed to transactional.

81: How to Use Teaching to Grow Rich in All Areas of Life with Danny Iny

What a privilege it was to have Danny Iny on the podcast this week.

Danny runs a company called Mirasee, where they help visionary businesses and entrepreneurs to make a huge impact through teaching and sharing huge value with their audience.

He’s also the bestselling author of several books as well as the host of his own podcast, Business Reimagined.

But something close to Danny’s heart (and a huge part of his business) is showing how entrepreneurs can become teachers and use education in order further their success and impact.

In fact, he’s written a bestselling book on the subject called Teach & Grow Rich, which he’s recently updated and will be releasing the second edition imminently.

So I wanted to talk to Danny about his story of how he stepped into being a teacher in his business and also talk about the book itself.

In the Episode, We Talk About…

  • Danny’s story of going from $250k in personal debt to living his dream life through teaching and inspiring others.
  • How creating a different story around your ‘failures’ can prevent you from always holding yourself back.
  • How to cope when everything seems to be going wrong in your life.
  • Why teaching is a ‘different kind of opportunity’ and how to use it to make more impact in your life and business.
  • Why it’s so important to find your ‘democratised access’ when it comes to teaching.
  • How to figure out your personal zone of genius that you can teach to others.
  • The power of using ‘education’ in your business, as opposed to just information.
  • What Danny sees as the three biggest reasons people stop themselves from succeeding when starting to teach others (and how to overcome them).

80: My Year in Review: 5 of the Biggest Things I Learned in 2016

It’s the final podcast of 2016, so I thought I would do some kind of ‘review episode’.

I decided to simply come up with a list of five things that I learned over the year and kick back with a beer to just go through them all.

This was all done off the top of my head with just the five points as a rough guide, so excuse some of the mad rambling tangents I may go off in.

But I think what I share is pretty powerful nonetheless.

So kick back and listen to what I learned about myself, life, business and all kinds of other things in 2016.

In the Episode, I Talk About…

  • The top five things I learned in 2016.
  • How these five things can help you in 2017.
  • Why it’s important to just take action before you feel like you’re ready.
  • How my relationship with the word ‘love’ changed in 2016 and improved all areas of my life.
  • The importance of serving yourself first.
  • Getting past the feelings of not feeling worthy and not feeling good enough.
  • And much more.

79: How to Harness Your Hidden Super Power in Your Life, Business & Career with David Ralph

What a wonderful conversation I had with David Ralph here on the podcast this week.

He’s one of those people who I feel like I just had a genuine connection with straightaway and could have gone on for a good while longer just chatting about all sorts of things.

David is the host of the rather popular Join Up Dots podcast where he’s grown a pretty large following over the last few years and now teaches others to do the same.

But, as with many people, it’s not always been smooth sailing. David didn’t enter this whole ‘online/podcasty/entrepreneurial’ world until his mid-40s after climbing up the corporate ladder for many years.

So we talk about his story and how he discovered his ‘super power’ to share with the rest of the world.

In The Episode, We Talk About…

  • David’s story of quitting his corporate boredom to discover something he was passionate about.
  • The struggles David faced once he started his ‘solo journey’ (and how he overcame them).
  • An exercise for finding out what your super power is and how you can harness it in your business or career.
  • How to give yourself a ‘motivation rocket’.
  • Why it’s vital to know what you’re not good at.
  • The good and the bad of being a ‘hustler’.
  • How to get over the fear of judgement.
  • How to get yourself in a position where you can’t wait to get back to work.
  • Why following your own path is always the best way.
  • The importance of getting clarity on and working towards your perfect day.
