    ABCPL BONUS Episode = Reflecting on 2022

    So....here comes the long overdue podcast! When I sat down to record this, I had originally thought of taking some time to reflect on the year gone by and to share some news and and lessons from it, as well as thoughts and goals for 2023. This video ended up being all that, plus a whole lot more--including thoughts on balding, co-dependent coaching relationships, health fads, the pressures of unrealistic ideals, how to have difficult conversations with your loved ones, etc. Give it a listen and let me know your thoughts!

    Happiness...what does this word mean? What is it about the concept of happiness that makes us want to devote our whole life to finding it? And, if it is so important, why do so few people feel genuinely happy? Today on the podcast, I interview a good friend of mine--Mel Leow. Join us as we talk through his latest book--Engage--and find out how we can redefine and rediscover happiness for ourselves.

In this podcast, I talk you through the science of growth and of making last progress. I hope you enjoy it!

    ABCPL #06 - F for Facing Fears

    ABCPL #06 - F for Facing Fears

    Studies have shown that there are two types of regret: action regret and inaction regret. While action regrets are most prevalent in the short term, inaction regrets increase exponentially as the years go on. So much so, that the most common deathbed statement is this: "If I only had." How can we avoid this becoming our final words? How can we face our fears, take calculative risks, and turn challenges into our good? In this exclusive recording of a webinar for students of the Catalyst Apprentice Program in Nigeria, Kenya, and Zimbabwe (Done in April 2019), I discuss just that.

    ABCPL #05 - E for Exposing Excuses

    Life, at a fundamental level, involves suffering. That's a simple reality of life. However, suffering produces value when properly faced down and grown through. Yet a majority of people build up a life lie for themselves that blames their sufferings on others and makes them a victim of their circumstances. As comforting and as simplifying as that lie may be, accepting it sabotages one's success and brings their lives down into chaos and confusion. Hence, the importance of this episode our world today.
