    Alex McKinnon Speaks On Football Injury That Changed His Life & Finding Purpose To Live

    Alex McKinnon Speaks On Football Injury That Changed His Life & Finding Purpose To Live

    Our guest for today believes that focusing more on things you are grateful for will help you tackle many obstacles with courage and commitment. Alex Mckinnon is an Australian former professional rugby league footballer whose career was cut short by a spinal injury during a 2014 National Rugby League Premiership match against Melbourne.
    In this episode, Alex talks about how he started playing rugby, the benefits of going to boarding school for boys, the imposter syndrome, and the benefits of sitting back and cherishing the moment and our achievements and not always chasing the next level. He also shares some insights on how a football injury changed his life forever, the different ways you can find gratitude in your life, and the dangers of labeling yourself with something.
    Alex reminds us that gratitude is not just a nice sentiment. It can produce real and lasting results in your life. When we are grateful, we feel more positive emotions, leading to increased happiness, optimism, and healthier relationships. Gratitude also strengthens our immune system, helps us sleep better, improves our self-esteem, and allows us to live longer.

    Mark Crown Speaks On Transferring Talent into Success & His Hit UK music Group, Rudimental

    Mark Crown Speaks On Transferring Talent into Success & His Hit UK music Group, Rudimental

    My guest for today is a successful trumpeter who had to overcome many challenges to succeed in his career. Mark Crowney is a trumpeter for the British dance group Rudimental. He started his career when he was ten and became a high school music teacher before continuing his personal artistic journey. The growth was gradual, and he had to overcome personal doubts to thrive and reach his level.
    In this episode, Crowney shares how he started his music career, his first break as a trumpeter and how it changed his life, how he manages his physical and mental health while on tour, and the impacts of high life on artists. Crowney also talks about the doubting moments of his career and how he overcame them and advises young artists on how to turn things quicker.
    Crowney reminds us that being good at what you are as an artist takes time, and it is not something you can do on the side while working a 9-5 job. If you want to be successful and make money from your art, you must put in the time and effort to become good at it.

    Rachel Jay Speaks On Building Your Identity & Living A More Fulfilling Life

    Rachel Jay Speaks On Building Your Identity & Living A More Fulfilling Life

    My guest on the show for today is Rachel Jay. She has gone through a lot in transitioning from being an actor to being a health and wellness coach. Sometimes she doubted herself about the decision since acting was her identity since she was ten but managed to emerge victorious. Rachel has been in the health and wellness industry for over ten years. She holds a post-grad master's coaching qualification in Neuro-Linguistic Programming and a host of certifications across various health, wellness and fitness disciplines.
    In this episode, Rachel shares her experience in working with Delta Goodrem at the age of ten, the challenges of being an actor, the experience of film auditions, and the most challenging thing with the career transition from being an actor to being a health and wellness coach. She also talks about her biggest breakthrough in the health and fitness field and the common trends in people living suboptimal life.
    Rachel reminds us that if you are struggling with an identity crisis or to let go of a career and the transition to a new career, it is important to reassure yourself that life is full of new chapters, and you should not wrap your identity and worth on what you do for work and instead focus on what you bring to this world as a human being.
