    The Power In Setting Personal Boundaries

    The Power In Setting Personal Boundaries

    Despite what many believe, there is a truly positive power in saying "no". By doing so we are setting boundaries in every part of our lives, and as John explains in this episode, the setting of boundaires is not just healthy, but essential.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    When we say no, we are setting a boundary - line between what is and is not acceptable to you in any given situation.
    We live in a society where putting ourselves above others is deemed as a selfish act. We must consider others, but we must also live life as not detrimental to us.
    We must examine the relationship we have with ourselves. Low self-confidence or self-esteem play a major part in our boundary-setting capabilities.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'Such a small word, and yet so very powerful'

    'When we do not set healthy boundaries for ourself, it will impact our emotional, mental and physical wellbeing'

    'Be good to yourself'

    Relationship Performance - with Mary McClung

    Relationship Performance - with Mary McClung

    Mary McClung is a fitness and mindset coach, who uses her experience and knowledge in working with world-class athletes, coaches and teams, combined with NLP and neuro-science to create her own unique approach.

    Mary joins John this week to discuss the power of neurolinguistic programming, and how she is using it each day to help people achieve their goals.

    If you find yourself affected by any of the subjects raised in this show, please visit the following resources for more help or guidance:

    www.nspcc.org.uk  

    https://thecpsu.org.uk/help-advice/introduction-to-safeguarding/child-abuse-in-a-sports-setting/ 

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Neurolinguistic programming has profound effects upon the brain and the way our bodies operate. By harnessing its power we can unlock a new level of performance.
    If we are conditioned to believe in ourselves only to a point, to hold back upon the advice of others, then the effects can cause a ripple effect throughout the way we live
    In the world of sport, you are only ever important so long as you are operating to your full potential. This means that when you are hampered in any way, the effects are not just physical but emotional.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'I knew I was good, but I wasn't allowed to be good enough'

    'I wanted somebody to tell me why the heck I should not run as fast as I knew I could run'

    'It was when I studied NLP that I got the lightbulb moment'

    'It's helped me to understand myself better'

    Affirmations

    Affirmations

    This week, John talks about affirmations and how they can help to establish a far more positive internal relationship with ourselves, thereby allowing us to create far more meaningful relationships with others.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS 
    If we foster a negative viewpoint or perspective internally, then it is far more unlikely that we will ever be able to create a positive relationship with others.
    If we establish a higher sense of self-worth, then the benefits are not just emotional. It has been shown that physical positives can emerge if we treat ourselves well.
    Hermetic philosophy states that we cannot simply say the opposite of what we believe in order for it become our truth.
    In childhood our brains are in foetus state. We absorb information far more easily, and becomes embedded far more deeply. If we seek to change these things later, then we must do so by embracing methods that also help us to reach this foetus state.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'The most important relationship you're ever going to have is the one you have with yourself'

    'We are able to change the way we think about ourselves and see ourselves if we start to have different conversations with ourselves'

    'If we are able to manage our thoughts, then we are able to create our reality'

    'Positive affirmations target a conscious level of your mind'

    Why Relationships Are Key When Building Your Business

    Why Relationships Are Key When Building Your Business

    This week, John welcomes to the show, Nick James, the founder of Expert Empires, to discuss the importance of constructing successful relationships in business, and how by doing so we can achieve far more in the business world and in life.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    By building up our relationships with others, we make ourselves and others stronger. Our skills and strengths can compliment the weaknesses of others, and vice versa.
    People are attracted to those they can trust, and to those who can help them to achieve their own goals. This is why it is essential to establish that rapport with those around you.
    We must remember that each separate area of our lives has a knock on effect upon others. It is up to us to mitigate these effects when they begin to affect other areas of our lives.
    Trust is the crucial glue that reinforces and fortifies the relationships between us. But we must never discount the value in trusting in ourselves.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'Your greatest strength will always be your greatest weakness'

    'I've been studying and learning about personal development since I was a kid'

    'I've always known, unconsciously, that building relationships was important'

    'The quality of the relationship you have with yourself is based upon how much you trust yourself to do the right thing'

    ABOUT THE GUEST

    Nick dropped out of university at the age of 21 and failed spectacularly with his first coaching business, which forced him to take a £16k/yr telesales job. 

    Within 12 months he was the top performer and left to start his second business at 24. This time he discovered a winning formula and before long had a multi-six-figure company. He then made a huge mistake which nearly put him out of business and cost him £50,000 in personal cash! Fortunately, Nick kept it afloat, turned it around, and sold that business 2 years later in a seven-figure deal. 

    He then co-founded a multi-million-pound marketing company, which he exited in 2015, and created Expert Empires. Today, Expert Empires is known as the UK's number one business event for Experts, with world-renowned celebrity speakers like Gary Vaynerchuk, Grant Cardone, Chalene Johnson, David Goggins, and Lewis Howes gracing the stage.

    Nick also specialises in helping Coaches, Consultants, Speakers, Trainers, and Authors take their businesses from zero to six figures and beyond through his Expert Empires Mastermind programme.

    Relationship Red Flags

    Relationship Red Flags

    Looking for a new relationship, or experiencing the "getting to know each other" phase of a new relationship, can seem like a daunting prospect, especially since there are certain signals we should remain vigilant in spotting. But how best can we make sure that we're identifying these so-called "red flags" when it comes to people? In this episode, John talks about how best to make sure our relationship radar is functioning as it should.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    It's a sad fact that some people out there are looking for perceived flaws in your character so as to take advantage, or ways they can leverage in order to break a relationship.
    We can control the pace at which a relationship moves, as well as constructing boundaries that allow us to keep certain interactions and personalities at bay until we are fully sure of how we feel.
    When someone lacks consistency, it's easy to spot. We need to adhere to people whose actions best match their words and intentions.
    Listen to your instincts and your subconscious. It may be that it is picking up on an imbalance in your energy and that of a potential partner.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'Unfortunately there are people out there who could just be looking for weaknesses'

    'Set a better pace and set some boundaries'

    'You are allowed to release these people from your life!'

    'You need to be with a partner who wants to fortify a relationship with you through time, but understands that it's going to take some work'

    Relationship Breakdowns And Narcissists - with Elizabeth Goddard

    Relationship Breakdowns And Narcissists - with Elizabeth Goddard

    This week, John is joined by emotional abuse therapist and author Elizabeth Goddard, the founder of The Divorce Sanctuary.

    Elizabeth joins John to talk about the effects of relationship deterioration, including the sometimes unexpected loneliness that occurs in its aftermath. Elizabeth also discusses where abuse can begin, how we can identify the red flag traits in a partner, and how we can learn to move past the effects of a relationship breakdown.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Often, the person presented at the beginning of a relationship can be very different to the reality of a person. It's a painful and conflicting revelation to come to terms with.
    Abusive behaviour in relationships can imprint upon impressionable minds. If children are taught that abuse is normal, then there is good chance that this will be carried on in their own lives.
    Narcissists feed upon their partners both emotionally and financially. They suck their partner dry, and when there is nothing left to give, they move on.
    Narcissists and sociopaths are by their nature, not good at taking responsibility for their behaviours, and so do not feel the innate desire to seek help to overcome their condition. This can make therapy and treatment almost impossible.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

     'If we've grown up in an environment that's been abusive, then we will see that behaviour as normal'

    'They tune in to where your wounds are and then they use it to hurt you'

    'They play with people and it's a great game for them. They want to see how powerful they are'

    'It's important to remember that their condition comes from a place of pain'
