How to win ‘The War on the Ego’

5 Things You Must Do to Get to the Next Level

nextI don’t know about you, but I am not using 100% of my potential. I am not living life at the top level of Carl Massy. So I am speculating that maybe you too have a few levels to go to really get things shaking and moving in your life.

The other thing about going to the next level is it is hard-wired into us. We have a very real need to grow in life. To step up to the next level. Therefore if we are not growing we are also likely to feel unfulfilled.

So what are the best things you (and me) can do to take ourselves up to the next elusive level of happiness, health, vitality, success and fulfillment?

In this podcast I share with you what I believe are the 5 main things we all need to do to really tap into our inner greatness.

Here’s to your onwards and upwards journey!!

2 Awesomely Effective and Simple Strategies on Managing Your Emotions

happy guyHave you ever stopped to consider the idea that emotions are everything? That it is what we feel, that matters most. It is not the new shiny red Porsche that is the big deal it is the FEELINGS that we experience as a result of owning or driving in or seeing that car. What makes us move? What makes us do anything? It is emotions. Since they are so important, I want to share with you a couple of awesomely effective but simple strategies.

I prefer to use the term – mind popping. It was simply amazing and I recommend it to anyone else – regardless if it is for you personally or to use as a professional tool with clients. It is superb!

The big theme of the training and the stuff that we most need to understand for joy, success, happiness and fulfillment in life is EMOTIONS. So in this podcast I will share with you just 2 tools you can use immediately to better manage and utilise the power of your emotions.
