It Takes More Than Passion To Create A Revolution

It Takes More Than Passion To Create A Revolution

January 17, 2020

“People think that if we have enough passion that our passion is going to be the thing that ignites the revolution. The movement that we are going to bring into existence. And what I tell clients very routinely, you know what? Your passion is gonna kill you. Your passion is not a strategy. Your passion is great as an ingredient, but it does not mean you're going to arrive. You need to step out. And actually in many cases, passion is actually the poison because that passion makes them so fixated on their own thing that they lose the necessary perspective to actually step out and look broadly enough to go, wait a second. You know what? Now that we're actually over the intoxication of our own Kool-aid, let's look at the situation”. 

David Brier dropped this truth bomb on Episode 112 of Screw the Naysayers. And he is so right. Quick tips from David and Tim on how to create a kick ass solution for your clients.

Ep 190 The Salary Is What They Pay You To Give Up On Your Dream | Nathan Seaward

Ep 190 The Salary Is What They Pay You To Give Up On Your Dream | Nathan Seaward

January 15, 2020

Nathan Seaward’s childhood dream was to be a pilot. And then became one. Things fell into place for Nathan and who found himself at the top of his game flying Boeing 767’s around the Asia/Pacific. In a world where seniority rules, Nathan was set up for a long and successful career as a pilot. Then he did the unthinkable. After 16 years Nathan quit his job and became a personal coach and host of the Nathan Seaward Show. Unlike a lot of people Nathan did not hate his job. He enjoyed flying. He just felt that something was missing.

In this episode Nathan:

  • Says that he believes entrepreneurs can change the world whilst creating extraordinary lives for themselves and their families. Amen to that. 
  • Argues that salary is what they pay you to give up on your dream.
  • Admits that he had a panic attack the week before he left his job (if he chose to go back to flying he would have to start at the bottom of the seniority list)
  • Tells us why he’s declared war on retirement
  • Asks what you’re going to be thinking about in the last 5 minutes of your life
  • Stresses the importance of being able to distinguish between true self and ego
  • Admits that he ran out of money, not once, but twice
  • Says that you’re not really locked into that job you no longer like. You just think you are
  • And much more...

For me this interview was a fascinating insight into the mind of someone who quit a job few people quit and now is on a mission to help others create the life they want. Enjoy…..

Ep 189 How To Use Your Past To Empower Your Future | Emily Harrison

Ep 189 How To Use Your Past To Empower Your Future | Emily Harrison

January 13, 2020

Emily Harrison is the Founder/Director of the The Akashic Academy, a modern day mystery school dedicated to sharing knowledge that is changing the planet.

Raised in a small town in Louisiana, Emily dropped out of school to pursue her dream of being a hollywood actress. In the early days that meant working in restaurants where she had the opportunity to serve the likes of Jerry Seinfield. Her acting career took off and led to Emily being cast in a leading role on the American soap opera “The Bold and The Beautiful.”  What should have been the pinnacle of her career went off the track when Emily realized her heart was not in it. This impacted her performance and ultimately led to her being fired.

In 2015 Emily became a certified Akashic Records practitioner. She left her career in Hollywood and created a healing business that includes teaching, speaking, contributing to the Huffington Post, and mentoring/certifying others in the Akashic Records. 

For those that don’t know the Akashic Records are an energetic record of every person, place, thing, event, and animal on the planet. You could count me skeptical when I first heard Emily speak about the Akashic records at Harvard (we shared a stage). We had a lively discussion in which Emily:

  • Explains what the Akashic records are
  • How they can be used to find the clarity you’re seeking
  • What waking up really means
  • Why we’re all masters and newbies at the same time
  • Why your story so far is as important as the story yet to be written
  • How you past has been training you for the future ahead
  • And how she deals with the naysayers who mock her so called “woo woo” work

Emily’s genuine interest in helping others is impossible to deny, as is her passion for sharing the knowledge of the Akashic records. This episode digs into her work and also her journey as an entrepreneur. Enjoy

Emily encourages anyone interested to go to her website and book a free 15 minute clarity call.

Ep 188 You Are More Valuable Than Any Of Your Possesions | Kevin Palmieri

Ep 188 You Are More Valuable Than Any Of Your Possesions | Kevin Palmieri

January 8, 2020

Kevin Palmieri is a Peak Performance Coach and co-host of The Hyper Conscious Podcast where he interviews successful entrepreneurs, speakers, athletes and artists from around the globe. Through his podcast Kevin also gets to connect with people who are trying to change their mindset.

It’s a topic he’s passionate about because for Kevin changing his mindset wasn’t a choice. In his words it truly was a life or death decision. His purpose today is to be the person that he needed when he was at his lowest point. For Kevin that moment came at what would appear to be an unlikely time. From the outside looking in his life was great. He had a 6-figure income working as a construction foreman and lots of expensive toys. Things started to unravel when his girlfriend left him. Things spiralled out of control and reached a point where he thought about ending his own life. His decision to start the Hyper Conscious Podcast with his co host Alan Lazaros was the beginning of a remarkable turnaround.

In this episode Kevin:

  • Tells us how his focus on external things led him to the brink

  • Says he still wants nicer things but wants to get them differently

  • Reminds us that the biggest part of business is staying in business

  • Shares that he suffers from extreme anxiety and explains how he deals with it

  • States emphatically that he won’t fail his current girlfriend

  • Suggests that most people wait to long to pursue the side gig full time

  • Says that when you’re in the water you learn how to swim faster

  • Talks about growing up in a single parent home with no good male role models

  • Says that he’s always felt like an underdog

  •  And says you should never quit the journey but we should quit things that aren’t right for you

Kevin is on an amazing personal development journey. The wisdom he shares in this interview is high value.  Enjoy.

Ep 185 Empowering First Generation Self-Starters | Heather Parady

Ep 185 Empowering First Generation Self-Starters | Heather Parady

December 30, 2019

Heather Parady is  the host of the Unconventional Leaders podcast. The show currently airs five times a week. Folks that’s a podcast warrior for you.  

Heather is a therapist turned online entrepreneur and the intention of her work is to raise up the next generation leaders who go against the grain. The decision to become an entrepreneur came after she’d earned her Master’s degree. When the job offers started to come in Heather burst out in tears. Her husband pointed out that when people get a job offer, most of them go out for drinks to celebrate. But down deep Heather had this burning desire to create something of her own. 

We had raw conversation about:

  • Her entrepreneurial journey
  • The reaction of friends and family when she made the decision to start her own business
  • The sacrifices her family made for her to complete her education
  • Why she loves working with underdogs (she considers herself to be one)
  • What freedom means to her
  • Her views on parenting and preparing her two girls to be the best they can be

Heather has an infectious personality and wisdom that goes far beyond her years. I was honoured to have her on the show. Enjoy
