    The Science of Behavioural Change

    In this episode Mat chats with Dr Dalton Combs about the science of behavioural change, its influence in the digital space (such as social media), and how that expertise can be used for good (rather than evil).

    He has channeled his passion for understanding the causes and consequences of human behaviour as a tech startup founder applying cutting-edge neuroscience thorough his company,  Temper - a business committed to helping people master their metabolism.

    Dalton is the real deal, first as a neuroeconomics Ph.D. researcher at the University of Southern California, and then as the author of ‘Digital Behavioral Design’.

    In this fascinating conversation, Dalton explains how Temper harnesses the unrivalled understanding of the brain, the future of technology, and the interaction between the two. He offers some simple, free practices that anyone on the planet can employ immediately, anywhere, anytime.

    Solving Insecurity

    Solving Insecurity

    In this episode Mat chats with Jaemin Frazer, the founder of The Insecurity Project and a coach who specialises in helping entrepreneurs, leaders, and business owners eradicate insecurity so they can show up to life unhindered by doubt, fear, and self-limiting beliefs.

    This conversation led to some profound insights being shared by Jaemin about how underneath all patterns of human dysfunction lies limiting and disempowering beliefs about ourselves.

    Jaemin walked step-by-step through why he believes insecurity is a soluble problem and that our fears about not being good enough, not being worthy of love or acceptance or somehow being inadequate cause us to either run or hide so that we are never ‘found out’.

    He also took a mini-dive on the 7 essential practices for overcoming insecurity from his book, Unhindered. The reality is, opinions are the lowest form of not knowing anything, and running or hiding from insecurities always leads us to live in a way that is completely separated from the life we’d hope for.

    On The Unleashing Potential Podcast, we interview progressive individuals who are unleashing their potential on the world around them. We take a deep dive on how they got to where they are, what lessons they have learned along the way, and how their experiences can impact us all.

    This episode feels a little bit special.

    Put your limiting beliefs and prejudices to one side, plug in and be ready to be confronted.

    Be Happier; Channel Your Inner Child

    Be Happier; Channel Your Inner Child

    A child can find the purest of joy in just a puddle of water whereas most adults see it as something to ‘avoid’...

    In this episode, Mat chats with Dr. Hitu Jugessur from Canada and learns how The Art Of Living Foundation has helped over 200 million people around the world reduce stress, increase their energy and live happier life.

    Dr. Jugessur has spent a lot of time in many war-torn parts of Africa supporting the women and children left behind. It is her observation that whilst the situations may be different from those in the Western world, the personal struggles remain the same.

    Increased anxiety, depression, suicide, and domestic violence are symptoms of a mental health epidemic that presents itself across the globe, regardless of geography or socioeconomic status.

    The good news is that we can all be united by (re)connection with ourselves and those around us. Mindfulness can be a powerful daily intervention and lifestyle. Breathwork and meditation are available to us all and, once experienced, have the power to help us feel happier and be healthier.

    On The Unleashing Potential Podcast, we interview progressive individuals who are unleashing their potential on the world around them. We take a deep dive on how they got to where they are, what lessons they have learned along the way, and how their experiences can impact us all.

    Dr. Jugessur has a knack for lowering any stigmas or prejudices that exist around the subject of spirituality. In fact, there is a wonderfully simple analogy used to explain the distinction between religion and spirituality. It involves a banana…

    So get ready to peel back the layers of adulthood and learn to channel your inner child for a happier and healthier life.

    Taking Control Of Your Limiting Beliefs

    Taking Control Of Your Limiting Beliefs

    In this episode Mat chats with Bianca Thomas, a clinical mental health counselor specialising in cognitive behavioral therapy and a life coach who helps ambitious people uncover limiting beliefs holding them back from their true potential.

    This is a wonderfully candid conversation where Bianca offered a level of vulnerability that is rare in today's society.

    As a gay, Middle Eastern woman Bianca has an extensive background in helping others understand and embrace their own identity, live in alignment with their highest values, change their limiting beliefs and create radical transformations in their lives.

    Mat and Bianca walked what Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is and how she has used it to reconcile her own journey of feeling like the black sheep of the family growing up, struggling to find her place in the world and, more recently, her relationship with her family when they discovered that she was gay.

    Bianca was generous with sharing how she helps her clients; approaches such as reciprocal determinism, thought recording and so much more. She demonstrates the power of CBT techniques for anybody on the planet who is willing to “get in the mud a little and dig around”.

    On The Unleashing Potential Podcast, we interview progressive individuals who are unleashing their potential on the world around them. We take a deep dive on how they got to where they are, what lessons they have learned along the way and how their experiences can impact us all.

    Bianca is the co-founder of a hugley successful podcast, Evolve Ventures which is listened to in over 50 countries. If you like what you hear in this episode then you’ll love Bianca’s conversions where she and her co-host, Emilia Smith take state-of-the-art research, experience, and data-backed methodologies to evolve the old version of themselves.

    How To Reverse Engineer A Growth Mindset

    How To Reverse Engineer A Growth Mindset

    In this episode Mat chats with Anne O’Neil, a former All-American Division 1 Basketball Player turned management consultant and growth mindset expert.

    There’s no doubt that Anne’s successful sporting career transferred into her career in leadership, performance psychology, and organisational performance. In this conversation, she breaks down how she applies the same concepts of reverse engineering to her business life as she did when she was 13 years old and being drafted in the WNBA.

    It’s this devotion to a ‘big’ goal, and breaking it down into bite-sized pieces that afford the opportunity for ‘mini wins’ along the way and keep the intrinsic motivation levels pumping. As you’ll hear, Anne is the real deal and has continued to employ these methods throughout her life to great success.

    Mat and Anne also talked about viewing the world in 3D and the associated power of making aspects of your life bigger than yourself - attaching a higher purpose to even mundane activities. The example of paying for calls at Lifeline Australia for the delegates of The Impact Project served as the perfect example of this.

    On The Unleashing Potential Podcast, we interview progressive individuals who are unleashing their potential on the world around them. We take a deep dive on how they got to where they are, what lessons they have learned along the way and how their experiences can impact us all.

    If you want to learn how to consistently default to a growth mindset (versus the more common fixed mindset) then this episode is for you. Whether you’re looking for a huge transformation or simply seeking to fine-tune the dials, this is the liquorice allsorts episode - something for everyone.

    In this episode Mat chats with Neil Seligman about the evolution of leadership and how conscious companies are outperforming the competition. Neil is a London-based mindfulness advocate and conscious leadership pioneer who has authored two books; 100 Mindfulness Meditations and Conscious Leadership.

    In his late twenties, Neil had a moment of insight when he decided to abandon his career as a Barrister (Trial Lawyer) and set off in a new direction. It has taken a while but he now feels fully aligned in his work. He loves inspiring people to make powerful decisions for themselves and to take care of their wellbeing and happiness along the way.

    On The Unleashing Potential Podcast, we interview progressive individuals who are unleashing their potential on the world around them. We take a deep dive on how they got to where they are, what lessons they have learned along the way, and how their experiences can impact us all.

    In this conversation Mat and Neil discuss the role emotional intelligence plays in the journey of self-mastery and how the evolution of conscious leadership is helping companies outperform their competition.

    As a special treat, Neil guided a short meditation practice that centered around one of the most commonly cited challenges our clients' report; lack of time. This ‘live’ practice served to demonstrate the power of mindfulness and how accessible it is to every person on the planet.

    This is a fascinating and ‘flowy’ conversation that will deepen your perspective on the important role mindfulness can have in your professional and personal life. Chuck in your earbuds and give it a listen - if you like this episode, please share it.
