    Episode 4: Interview with Jaemin Frazer

    Today, it’s my special joy to introduce you to one of Australia’s most influential life coaches, Jaemin Frazer.

    Jaemin has just published his latest book, Unhindered: the seven essential practises for overcoming insecurity.

    He’s a TEDx speaker and has a popular radio segment called the One Minute Coach, that’s on stations all over Australia.

    He’s a global leader on personal insecurity, and the founder of The Insecurity Project. If you haven’t listened to The Insecurity Project podcast, I definitely recommend it.

    I first met Jaemin in Germany about 4 years ago, and had the privilege of being interviewed by him, so it was really special to be on the other end of the conversation.

    Some of the topics we discussed in this interview were:

    · Life not being entirely fair.

    · Insecurity and its impact on individuals.

    · The impact of the people around us

    I especially like the way Jaemin unpackaged the whole topic of insecurity and know you will really enjoy today’s show.

    How to Overcome Negativity Bias

    How to Overcome Negativity Bias

    Episode 3: How to Overcome Negativity Bias.
    A bias is a preference for one particular thing, when we’re given the choice between two or more things of equal value. A Negativity Bias means that even if we’re exposed to both negative and positive experiences, the negative experience has a greater impact on us. Here’s a few practical examples: 1. Not everything went to plan. 2. Too trivial to celebrate 3. It's just daily routine 4. I don't need to celebrate serving others 5. Partially completed goals That’s five practical examples of how we filter positive moments. Being more mindful of these five things, will help you add more joy to each day, by celebrating things that others might overlook. Maybe you have other examples that you’d like to share, I’d love to hear them. Message me on the website or comment on this podcast.

    How to Create a Lifestyle of Gratitude

    How to Create a Lifestyle of Gratitude

    Episode 2: How to Create a Lifestyle of Gratitude.

    Today, I will be sharing some tips to help you create a lifestyle of gratitude, and more specifically, I want to share how you can identify and journal special moments to celebrate for years to come.

    In contrast to goal setting, which is future focused, Gratitude Hunting, if I can call it that, is a reflective process that focuses on the past, so the opposite of goals setting, However, Gratitude Hunting it’s also an awareness, of what you can celebrate in the present moment.

    The past is often something people want to forget. Perhaps you’ve had a particularly bad year and you’d rather just forget it. I want to give you 3 benefits of reflecting on the past year:

    1. Gaining a bigger perspective of your life.
    2. Gaining a greater appreciation for the present.
    3. Greater clarity to plan the future.

    Here are the eight tips to help you create you own gratitude list.

    Reviewing your calendar
    Reflect on anniversaries
    Reflect on relationships
    Review social media posts
    Review your TO-DO lists
    Review any milestones
    Reflect on exciting opportunities
    Reflect on any big decisions

    That’s eight tips to help you explore some of special moments in the last year, or last 90 days if you’re working through my Empower90 workbook.

    If you’d like to know more about my 90 day goal setting program, called EMPOWER90, all the information will be on the EMPOWER90 website. 


    Thanks for listening, and I really look forward to joining you again next time.

    My Personal Gratitude Journey

    My Personal Gratitude Journey

    Episode 1: Goals and Gratitude Podcast with Peter Sewell

    Welcome to the very first episode of my new podcast. I’m so excited to share about the topics of goals and gratitude, which I am really passionate about. In today’s show, I’ll be sharing my own personal story, and I’ve called this episode: My Personal Gratitude Journey.

    The aim of this podcast is to promote the benefits of gratitude, and help you set and achieve goals that really matter. I’m currently writing a book on this topic, and have decided that a podcast would be an excellent way to share some of the content along the way.
