    54. Volume: Melissa Ambrosini Revisited: Self-Reverence

    54. Volume: Melissa Ambrosini Revisited: Self-Reverence

    Sometimes to silence that inner critic in our heads, we have to have a strong sense of who we are. Because after all, are you really going to listen to yourself if you don’t trust your gut? Self-reverence is sometimes a lifelong pursuit. But it’s not one we should give up on so easily.

    This is The Psychology of Entrepreneurship,

    A highly produced, revealing audio docuseries that follows me, Ronsley Vaz, and my guests, as we strive to go inside & unravel the inner workings of the mind of an entrepreneur, artist, athlete, academic; to decipher what is the psychology of our decisions.

    If you are an entrepreneur (BTW we consider that mothers are the original entrepreneurs) and would like to understand why we do certain things in certain situations, and if small changes in thinking can deliver massive amounts of results in success and happiness, then this podcast is for you.

    Melissa Ambrosini is used to telling her inner voice to shut up.

    In fact, she thinks we all need to learn to be just as firm with our inner critics. But to do that, self-reverence must be cultivated. And she, of all people, knows how hard that can be.

    Melissa was at her rock bottom. She was in and out of the hospital for strange medical issues and suffered from chronic fatigue. At the time of all this chaos, she was living on a pull-away cot at a friend’s house. She felt low and worthless and didn’t know how to feel otherwise. It didn’t help that her inner mean girl was constantly telling her it was too hard to make any changes.

    Fast forward to today, where Melissa is now a sought-after speaker, teacher, life coach, best-selling author and host of the top-rated podcast The Melissa Ambrosini Show. Her incredibly insightful TEDx Talk covers the system she uses to silence her inner critic. Her first book, Mastering Your Mean Girl, is focused on this as well and has raving reviews on Amazon.

    In this volume, Kaili helps me retell Melissa’s story. We go back to a few other past volumes to examine the idea of self-reverence and why we all need to build that trait within ourselves. And we discuss the hurdles this causes within ourselves, and why it’s human nature to think the worst of ourselves. We get into the power of discipline focused practices like yoga and meditation and how everyone’s journey to changing their inner voice looks different. This is an interesting volume you won’t want to miss.

    53. Volume: Emily Fletcher Revisited: Stress

    With the ever-evolving pandemic, and wayward politics threatening to make life even harder, the year 2020 hasn't exactly been stress-free. So, in this time of turmoil and collective anxiety, maybe there's something we can all do to lighten the emotional load and make our lives that little bit more pleasant?

    This is The Psychology of Entrepreneurship,

    a highly produced, revealing audio docuseries that follows Ronsley Vaz and his guests as they strive to go inside & unravel the inner workings of the mind of an entrepreneur, artist, athlete, academic to decipher what is the psychology of our decisions.

    If you are an entrepreneur (BTW, we consider that mothers are the original entrepreneurs) and would like to understand why we do certain things in certain situations, if small changes in thinking can deliver massive amounts of success and happiness, this podcast is for you.

    Emily Fletcher is striving to eliminate stress.

    Whether you're an entrepreneur or not, you'll benefit from the wise words of the Meditation Guru, that is Emily Fletcher. Due to her stress-busting knowledge, Emily is now a world-renowned meditation expert and founder of Ziva Meditation.

    This practice provides anyone with the mental tools they need to practice effective mindfulness, meditation, and manifesting. So many top performers use this technique, including Oscar, Grammy, Emmy, and Tony award winners, NBA players, Fortune 500 CEOs, busy parents, and entrepreneurs.

    Her highly coveted book, Stress Less, Accomplish More debuted at #7 on Amazon and sold over 50,000 copies in less than a year. The New York Times, Good Morning America, The Today Show, Vogue, and ABC News have all featured Emily's work.

    In today's volume of The Psychology of Entrepreneurship, we're going to be revisiting Volume 27, Meditation is Medicine, where I had an eye-opening chat about the wonders of stepping back and taking a few moments each day to meditate. Also, Emily explains the fantastic healing effects meditation has had on her life. And the trauma that so many of us has inherited from generations before. We also discuss how stress creates a population of stupid, sick & slow people- but it's okay. There is a remedy.

    As always, we've peppered this revisited discussion with snippets from previous volumes to give further context and expand on ideas.

    So, sit back, relax, and enjoy a stress-free moment.

    52. Volume: Prabhat Sinha: Empowerment

    52. Volume: Prabhat Sinha: Empowerment

    When you live in a country like Australia or the United States, it’s easy to take something as simple as team sports for granted. For young kids growing up in the rural villages of India, physical activities are done to provide for their families, not fun. By giving kids and teens- especially girls- access to competitive sports, empowerment is the inevitable result.

    This is The Psychology of Entrepreneurship,

    a highly produced, revealing audio docuseries that follows me, Ronsley Vaz, and my guests, as we strive to go inside & unravel the inner workings of the mind of an entrepreneur, artist, athlete, academic; to decipher what is the psychology of our decisions.

    If you are an entrepreneur (BTW we consider that mothers are the original entrepreneurs), and would like to understand why we do certain things in certain situations, and if small changes in thinking can deliver massive amounts of results in success and happiness, then this podcast is for you.

    Prabhat Sinha fell in love with sports in the states.

    Growing up in rural India, Prabhat attended school in a tiny building with a room with mud walls. There were three grade levels of kids packed together with one teacher. Part of the lessons was spent working long hours at the nearby farm. At the time, Prabhat didn’t know there was any other way. This was “normal” for him. He would swim in the local lake, chasing ducks that would later be used for his supper. Or he would climb tall trees chasing birds and chameleons. All of this was done for fun, he didn’t even really know what competition was.

    Then he got the opportunity to move to America with his mother. That’s when he was first introduced to competitive swimming. Next was basketball, which was fascinating to Prabhat who had never seen a ball or a hoop before. He instantly fell in love. The empowerment that came with playing with a team and learning new skills was invaluable.

    Today, Prabhat is the founder of the Mann Deshi Foundation. This amazing organisation empowers women in rural India to make their own choices by giving them skills, financial know how and access to business networks. Women’s empowerment is a goal close to Prabhat’s heart due to the massive influence both his grandmother and mother had on him growing up. 

    Prabhat is also responsible for Mann Deshi Champions. This sports program provides facilities, equipment, coaching, training and even nutrition for aspiring athletes in rural India. It’s not just about playing sports. It’s about giving kids and teens social skills, self-esteem and physical health that they can carry throughout their entire lives.

    In this volume, Prabhat and I talk about the adventures he had growing up in India and how they compared to his new life in the states. He gave us some pretty hard truths about family culture in India, and what he’s doing to change that. This is an enlightening conversation about a culture and country that is hard to define. I can’t wait for you to hear it.

    51. Volume: Kari Sutton: Emotional Intelligence

    Would you like your kids to develop into well-adjusted, kind and resilient young people? As the saying goes, “It starts at home.” What we say and how we act matters- especially when it comes to our kid's emotional intelligence. A child is like a sponge, and even the smallest throwaway comment can significantly affect how they feel and behave. So, what can we all do to safeguard the mental wellbeing of the next generation?

    This is The Psychology of Entrepreneurship,

    a highly produced, revealing audio docuseries that follows me, Ronsley Vaz, and my guests, as we strive to go inside & unravel the inner workings of the mind of an entrepreneur, artist, athlete, academic; to decipher what is the psychology of our decisions.

    If you are an entrepreneur (BTW we consider that mothers are the original entrepreneurs), and would like to understand why we do certain things in certain situations, and if small changes in thinking can deliver massive amounts of results in success and happiness, then this podcast is for you.

    Kari Sutton plants little seeds of resilience.

    She also empowers parents, early childhood educators, and teachers to nurture emotional wellbeing and positive mental health. She does all this through workshops, consulting, and mentoring by blending cutting-edge science with practical tools and strategies.

    Kari is a researcher, educator, author, speaker, and expert child psychologist. She has spent over 25 years tackling the crisis of children's mental health. Within this time, she has also focused on caring for children aged 0 – 13 living with cancer in a program called Camp Quality.

    Also, her two books, Raising Generation XXL, and Raising a Mentally Fit Generation, are coming out in late 2020.

    In this volume, Kari and I talk about how the things we say have psychological consequences, particularly in children. We also discuss feeding your inner voice and reluctantly agree that bullying will always be a part of our lives, so we have to deal with it in the right way.



    Other important topics in this volume:



    * Why parents should check their language before they speak

    * Teaching manners and the colourblind bond over Disney's Frozen

    * How to stop the “Itty Bitty Crappy Committee.”

    50. Volume: Luke Coutinho: Simplicity

    50. Volume: Luke Coutinho: Simplicity

    When we come across a complicated problem, over analyzing will only make it more complex to solve. Look for the simplicity amongst the chaos.

    This is The Psychology of Entrepreneurship,

    a highly produced, revealing audio docuseries that follows me, Ronsley Vaz, and my guests, as we strive to go inside & unravel the inner workings of the mind of an entrepreneur, artist, athlete, academic; to decipher what is the psychology of our decisions.

    If you are an entrepreneur (BTW we consider that mothers are the original entrepreneurs), and would like to understand why we do certain things in certain situations, and if small changes in thinking can deliver massive amounts of results in success and happiness, then this podcast is for you.

    Luke Coutinho likes to keep things simple.

    That may seem like a silly thing to say about a guy who owns a mega-successful Integrative Lifestyle Medicine and Life Coaching business. That alone sounds complicated! But he’s gotten where he is today thanks to his unique gift of finding the simplicity within complicated health problems.

    Luke has patients waiting four months to a year to see him and his team of talented health care professionals. But it’s not just his popularity that’s admirable. He’s won awards from the World Health and Wellness Congress, Vogue's Best of Industry, GQ Under 40 and Times Power Man of the Year, just to name a few. He’s known throughout the health and wellness world as the go-to guy for lifestyle centred treatment.

    And he’s also one of my oldest friends. Luke and I went to school together, so I’m well aware of how uncomplicated he can be. We spent many a day skipping class to play cricket and hang out, but that’s neither here nor there…



    In this volume, Luke breaks down the philosophy behind his business, which is, you guessed it- simplicity. He explains why we all need to disconnect a bit from the outer world and reconnect with our inner world. He tells us how he does this, and what he recommends for his patients, so they can do the same. Luke is a huge believer in personal change and accountability, and we had a killer conversation about his journey. I use some previous guests to help pick apart the magic of simplicity, as well as one of my favourite Ted Talks of all time. To put it simply, you’re not going to want to miss this one.

    Other great stuff in this volume:



    * The many different diseases Luke and his team have been able to treat successfully

    * Luke just doesn’t do complicated

    * Why drugs aren’t the solution to our health problems

    * Content saturation is pulling us further and further away from ourselves

    * The paradox of McDonald’s in India

    * Why Luke puts so much value in his routine

    * Why should always end your day in reflection

    * You don’t always have to scale your business

    * The inner world vs. the outer world

    49. Volume: UJ Ramdas Revisited: Success Mindset

    49. Volume: UJ Ramdas Revisited: Success Mindset

    You can never have enough of what you don't really need. We think we want the car, the house, the money. But, success doesn't lie in filling our worlds with material things. Instead, it's about establishing what you really, really want in this life.

    This is The Psychology of Entrepreneurship,

    a highly produced audio documentary style, revealing series that follows Ronsley Vaz and his guests, as they strive to go inside & unravel the inner workings of the mind of an entrepreneur, artist, athlete, academic; to decipher what is the psychology of our decisions.

    If you are an entrepreneur (BTW we consider that mothers are the original entrepreneurs) and would like to understand why we do certain things in certain situations, and if small changes in thinking can deliver massive amounts of results in success and happiness, then this podcast is for you.

    UJ Ramdas knows what it takes to be successful.

    Since he can remember, UJ has wanted to be his own boss. At the age of 17, he moved from India to Canada alone. Within a matter of weeks, he had changed both his accent and name to fit in. During this crucial time, he watched, listened and adapted to his new life. Surprisingly, what he found was a lack of ambition or entrepreneurial drive. Frustrated, UJ took his destiny into his own hands and aimed for a life of success and self-improvement.

    Today, UJ is the co-creator of the Five Minute Journal. It’s an insanely popular gratitude journal that has sold over half a million copies worldwide. He is also the co-founder of Intelligent Change, a company that creates tools for people to help realise their ambitions and become more powerful versions of themselves. His work has been featured in The New York Times, Lifehacker, The Tim Ferriss Show and Entrepreneur Magazine.

    In this volume, we are revisiting Volume 18 of the Psychology of Entrepreneurship series. Since its original release, we've had countless conversations with some of the planet's most inspiring entrepreneurs. So, we wanted to reanalyse UJ's wisdom and bring in some supporting sound bites from other volumes. You’ll hear familiar voices from the likes of Darin Olien, Dr Sherry Walling, Jordan Axani, Emily Fletcher and Rich Litvin.

    In this discussion, Ronsley and Kaili dive back into this classic conversation. UJ explores his experiences with meditation and how it helps him in his day to day life. Also, they look at why UJ has such a strong history of disrespecting misplaced authority. And why your success relies on recognising what you really, really, want in this life.



    Also featured in this volume:



    * Why UJ seeks the truth in everything

    * Morning routines and 2.63 cups of coffee

    * UJ's experience with meditation

    * The sniper of decision making

    * How suffering is optional

    * Do you know what you really, really, really, really want?

    * When UJ arrived in Canada for the first time

    * Why you should jump into a cold shower

    * How to get out of living with regret

Smart Dialogue and High Production Value

I really enjoy this podcast because not only does Ronsley ask the questions I would ask if I were there but he actually highlights important parts of the conversation and then goes in depth in breakouts on those specific points. He is skilled at cutting to the meat of the conversation and serving it up in perfect, bite sized chunks. It is also obvious that a lot of time and energy go in to each episode. Well worth every minute of time invested in this podcast.

A place to reflect and grow...

Thank you a Ronsley and team for creating this podcast. I’ve heard it said that it’s not what you say that people remember, it’s how you make them feel. When I listen, it’s like every episode was recorded for me. It makes me feel like I’m not alone on this remarkable and treacherous journey.

There’s a difference between pontificating and reflecting. There’s a difference between interviewing and exploring. I find myself lost in thought during these shows and I’m given the space to think and feel within the context of the conversation being had.

Your message matters to me and I’m guessing it will matter to many more.
