Ep 020: How To Get Rid of Negativity
Grab a copy of Brett's book --> http://brettcampbell.net/book
Hello. Brett Campbell here. Today, I want to talk about a topic on how you can remove and avoid negativity from your life forever. Imagine a life like that, where you wake up and just everything that seems to happen is just happy and joy, and there's just positivity everywhere. Of course we've got the critics who will say, "Brett, you can't live just a positive life all the time." I get that. I get that, but imagine being present to the thought of looking at things from a positive standpoint. Imagine looking at that glass and it is half full, instead of half empty. Imagine being able to look at the positive. It's raining outside, for example. Imagine being able to look at that and go, "Well, the earth is getting a shower today. The earth is getting what it needs so it can grow everything else that we need as individuals and human beings."
Far too often, we look at these things and we go, "Oh, that's happened. Oh no." Hey, look, I totally understand, the media outlets, the social media is just full of negativity these days, and it's almost a ... It's very, very hard, I know that for a fact. It's very hard to avoid all of these negative happenings in the world. I heard Jim Rohn say, he was talking about, "Be the security guard of your own mind." Imagine that. Imagine having a security guard sitting in the front of your mind, letting someone come through, letting a thought come through, or saying, "No, you're a negative thought, you need to go away and go down the road to someone else's mind, because my mind is not going to allow that."
I want to talk you through the 10X Negativity Filter. It's just a really simple way on how you can stop and think about something. Whether it's a person, a thing or a current circumstance in your life, I want you to decide. Does this thing get to flourish, or do you filter it away and no longer give it any energy, time, resources? What can happen is if you're giving time, energy, and resources to a negative thing, person, or circumstance, it's going to grow. Of course it's going to grow. You water a weed. The more water that a weed gets, the bigger the weed starts to grow. We need to start thinking, "How can we as human beings, taking our own personal responsibility on board here, how can we start to think, and how can we start to remove, and even better, how do we avoid negativity? Not letting the negativity come into our life in the first place.
Now we all start with ... Obviously we've got a lot of baggage. There's a lot of things that's happened to us in our lives. There are those old limiting beliefs, old roadblocks that we currently have. This 10X Negativity Filter is I'm going to take ... What I'm going to take you through right now is I want you to think about a person, things, or any circumstances currently in your life that you can actually do this on. Imagine a sheet of paper. I want you to draw a line down in the middle of piece of paper. On one side, we're going to have topics of sadness, anger, fear. On the other side, we're going to have topics of happy excited, love, and peace.
Now I just want you to think about all the things in your life, and ask yourself. Does this thing bring me sadness? Does this person make me angry? Does this person bring fear up with inside myself? Am I scared of this person? Does this person make me happy, excited? Do they bring love into my world, and do they help me be at sense of piece? I want you to go through the 2 columns. I just want you to jot out things in your life, whether it's people. Go through your entire family. Go through your entire family. That could be a dangerous exercise, but go through your entire family, your friends, your network, current work circumstances, maybe your job. Does your job make you sad? Does it make you angry, or it invoking a happy and exci
Ep 019: The Power of Giving

Hello, it’s Brett Campbell here and today I want to talk about the power of giving. I would to share with you a story that’s really close to my heart.
A few months ago my wife Emily and I were travelling in the beautiful country of Bali. If you have never been there, I would highly recommend you to go over there, despite all the possible bad media you may have heard about, but if you go to the right places, it’s absolutely beautiful. It’s almost like my second home. We like to spend a few days in the built up, busier area, around the shops and cafes and so forth. But we always like to spend a couple of days connecting with nature and ourselves in a more secluded area. We were spending a few days of what we would call ‘the seclusion component’ to our holiday. We were staying at a nice little resort in Uluwatu, which is at the bottom of the island.
After spending the day at the beach, we were cruising around the streets on our scooters and on our way back to the hotel to grab some lunch we noticed in the distance what looked like to be a small trailer moving very slowly, but as we proceeded closer, it was actually an elderly gentleman. If I have to predict the age, I have to say 70+ and on this gentleman’s back, I couldn’t believe it, there were literally bags and bags of things he was just carrying which ended up being every item that he owned. It was his life, he was walking around the streets with his life on his back and that really struck me. I thought wow! I have seen homeless people before but this particular person somehow just resonated with me.
As we proceeded closer, I did the check out, as you do and I looked down at his feet and he had no shoes on and literally his feet had dried blood from walking on stones, he had cracks and cuts in to his feet and I was thinking: ‘oh my gosh, this is horrific.’ He is carrying his life on his back, he was using an old stick as a walking stick, and I could tell his hips and everything were all out of alignment.
It just really touched me and Emily and we both thought lets go and get him some shoes, and tried to imagine what he would feel like, as it looked like he had never worn a pair of shoes in his life. We didn’t have any shoes to give him as we both had bare feet. The preference is don’t ride a scooter with bare feet but we thought when in Bali!
We jump back on the scooter and cruise back to the hotel and I grab my havianas/ thongs/jandals whatever you want to call them wherever you are,( for my American friends ‘flip flops), and we went back to find this gentlemen. And literally he had maybe moved about 40 meters and then we pulled over and we preceded to approach the gentlemen and say “hello” and he didn’t understand a word of English but there seems to be this universal language that everyone seems to understand and it’s the language of energy: you just feel when something is happening and this gentlemen, you can see in his eyes, they totally light up, because he knew that I think he knew what was about to happen, so I grab my thongs and I said that: “Look, we want to give you these.”
And we put them down on the ground in front of his feet and you can see he was struggling to even stand on one foot, he was out of balance, because again he was carrying his life on his back and he went to put on the thong and I can tell you he didn’t know really what to do, because the thong part lined up in the wrong toe and so we have to take it back off and almost do a shoe fitting on his foot. And at the time something happened that was quite remarkable; along the street there were residents who came out of their home, stopping to look at what was happening and were probably thinking “what are these guys doing”, and they stopped to look at what was happening, they
Ep 018: Why You Should Just Let It Go

Hello Brett Campbell here, and today I want to talk about a topic that not a lot of people would even enter into the woods to even start thinking about, and it’s the topic of what are the things in your life that you’re currently holding onto, right? The things that that you’re currently holding onto that are not serving you. The things that are stopping you from achieving what you want to achieve. The things that are stopping you from achieving your life mission or living your life’s purpose okay.
I want to share with you a quick story. It’s quite funny actually, but the message in itself is all about what are you currently doing that you must, you must right now after watching this video and understanding what I’m about to say, what is it that you are going to just cut right now? You’re going to draw a line on the sand. You’re going to go “You know what right from now from this second moving forward I’m no longer going to do X.” Share with you this quick story, it’s very funny.
As a kid I was about 8 years old at this stage and I was living at home with my parents of course and me and my mother and I can’t even remember what this was about but we were having a little bit of an argument, probably over nothing. You know what 8 year old kids are like, you were one yourself. We’re having an argument and I decide, “You know what? That’s it, I’m moving out.” Literally, I’m moving out, I’ve had enough. I didn’t know where I was going to go and live but at that exact second I was like, “I know right now that I’m moving out.”
I went into my bedroom. I got one of our bags out of our cupboard. It was an old rainbow, like a hessian type of bag, you know those old school carry bags with the big zip. It was about yay big and I emptied every drawer so my drawer of clothes threw them in there, pulled all my other things out of my shelf, put them into this bag. This bag was almost as big as me. At that time I was waiting for my mum to come into the room and say, “Oh don’t worry about it. I’m sorry.” But she didn’t do that. She didn’t do that so I grabbed the bag and I walked out the front door, dragging this bag because it was that big.
All of a sudden I was like, “Where am I going to go? What am I going to do?” I started going through all the people I know, my friends. Would their mum come pick me up because obviously I couldn’t drive and I couldn’t ride my little bike, my BMX bike with this massive bag so I was stuck with ideas but as someone who is always been quite driven and always tries to find solution in the problem I went to it. I grabbed my bag, dragged it outside. At that stage we were living on a main highway so there was a main highway in front of our house. There was a brick wall where we were and then it dropped down and there was the main highway which was literally 3 meters away from our front fence.
I carried on and I sat there and it was about 3pm in the afternoon so the sun was shining, beautiful day so I said, “Okay, I’ve got time to think about this.” I sat down and I was leaning on my bag and every so often I would look back and I would see in the corner of the window the curtain moving and it was my mum checking it out. I was like, “Gee, when are you going to come out here?” All right, I was waiting for her to apologize to me. Stubborn as I was I decided I’m going to stay there. What I might do is start hitchhiking. I’m going to put my thumb out. Eight year old kid with a bag, good idea, not so don’t do that. I thought I’m not going to do that because I don’t want to be picked up by a stranger, I would hate for that to happen.
I was sitting there and I started counting cars and I was playing games with cars as they were going past, different colo
Ep 017: How To Easily Deal With Anger
Grab your copy of Brett's Book --> http://brettcampbell.net/book
Hello, Brett Campbell here and today we’re going to talk about how you can handle and how you deal with anger. Now you’re either one of two types of person. You’re the person that just gets frustrated, smoke comes out of your ears, your hair stands on end or you’re the type of person who seems to just never get angry. I mean, people ask me all the time, they go man, you never get angry, why don’t you get angry at these type of things. I used to, but now I’ve learned how to be able to deal and develop strategies on how I can process the current situation. Take someone driving and cutting you off for example. We’ve all been there, we’ve all done it. Okay.
Now if you have never, ever cut anyone off and then someone cuts you off, I could probably understand how you’re getting a little bit angry about that because it’s not the right thing to do. You could have almost had a crash but using a principle that’s from Steven Covey, the seek first to understand principle, where, and that’s from the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, highly recommend you read that book. That principle talks about seeking first, imagine that person who has driven out there, I don’t think they meant to cut you off on purpose.
Now there’s not many people out there who are driving cars going, I’m going to cut off some people today. They’re not like that. They’re just probably or possibly not the best drivers and maybe they do need to get some lessons, but getting angry about the situation is not going to solve the, or give you the outcome that you’re probably looking for. Imagine going into a situation, something happens and you’re just, inside you’re like oh I’m so angry, but on the outside you just look calm. Calm, you’re taking it in, you’re like wow, I don’t agree with this but let it happen, unfold, work through the emotion.
I want to give you a quick background on the two ways that we can only handle emotions. There’s either the expression or the suppression. The expression, there’s three emotions that fold under the expression that are seen as socially acceptable to express and that’s peace, that’s joy and that’s love. It’s cool to walk up to someone and give them a handshake, then give them a hug when we’ve met them, when you’ve seen them, maybe a good friend. You’re giving them a big hug or maybe you’re just seen your partner just come off a plane, you go up, give them a big kiss. That’s acceptable. Love is acceptable.
Being happy is acceptable whilst if you’re watching media you probably think something different. Of course peace being peace. You know those type of people, you can just look at them and go man, they just look so peaceful right now. Then there’s three emotions that are not socially acceptable to express and that’s anger, that’s having an outrage at someone walking down the street, start yelling. That’s not acceptable. That’s not acceptable behaviour, not for any adult any how. The next is fear. It’s not acceptable to be running down the street, the world’s going to end, the sky is falling. Remember that Chicken Licken song?
That’s really not an acceptable way to behave. Then there’s sadness. You’re not going to walk down the street crying, balling your eyes out because it’s, people are going to start looking because it’s not socially accepted. What happens is when you don’t get to express the emotion, it starts suppressing itself and building itself up inside. Imagine a cup dripping a drop of water, drop of water, drop of water over time there’s going to be so much water in there it’s going to get to the top and it’s going to start to overflow. That my friend is where your anger starts to take a turn for the worse.
