    If we change one thing we change everything. "No one gets left behind but not everyone chooses to come with you." -Geoff Thompson The Cheat Sheet: Where do all fears exist? How did writing down all of his fears make a difference? Why he forgave the man who abused him. Why does certainty matter so much? What Buckminster Fuller can teach you about success. And so much more... If you knew all your fears only existed as a result of your belief in them what would you do differently? Would you actually write down every single one of them from smallest to greatest and then face them? That's exactly what our guest for today's show did and it completely altered the course of his life. Geoff Thompson, BAFTA-winning film writer and author of 40 books including his autobiography Watch My Back is here to talk about fear, creating your own reality and so much more on episode 388 of The Art of Charm. Today's show is brought to you by Casper, Get $50 toward any mattress purchase by visiting Casper and using promo code AOC! More About This Show: Geoff Thompson comes from humble origins; he grew up in a working class family and had working class friends and loved ones for most of his adult life. By the age of 32 he was working in factory and was in a deep depression. He knew he was meant for more but every time he tried to rise up his fears got the best of him and he could not overcome them. Deciding it was time to do something about that, Geoff made a list of everything he was afraid of from smallest to greatest fear. And then he systematically confronted each one. On today's episode he talks about what some of these experiences were like including why physical violence was at the top of the list and how he overcame the naysayers who surrounded him. When Geoff was only 11 years old he was sexually abused by a teacher in his community, someone he admired and respected greatly. When no one helped him deal with the experience, not his church and not his parents, he internalized the abandonment he felt and allowed the experience to "possess" him. The abuse he received became the reason he built himself into a fighting machine. He took away anything about himself that could be construed as attractive and made it ugly; he believed the world could not be trusted and everything around him soon reinforced that belief. Eventually Geoff saw he had to let go of all of the story he had created in order to build a new life. And letting go of it happened as a result of writing it down. His autobiography, Watch My Back, tells of his childhood including the abuse, his early adult years and how he shifted from a working class bloke in a bad neighborhood, in a bad marriage to a fulfilled, evolved and transformed, award-winning writer. We cover so much on this show but one of the main stories to listen to is how Geoff received his BAFTA. One of the principles he's learned and now teaches others is to give without conditions. What you give to the world will come back to you, often not from the same place you give it but it does come back. The story of how he wrote the film that later won a BAFTA is a perfect example of this. You'll also want to hear Geoff's perspective on dealing with negative people in your life. After he published his first book his friends and loved ones were calling him pretentious and telling him not to get above himself. How he rebuilt his life and let go of naysayers is a powerful lesson and Geoff's wisdom will resonate with you. Thanks to Geoff for speaking so candidly and with such grace on today's show.

  • Geoff Blades on How to Systematize Your Life for Success - Episode #288

    · 00:24:34 · The Less Doing Podcast with Ari Meisel: The Best Life Hacks And Productivity Tips For Less Doing, More Living

    There are few people who have figured out what it takes to systematize life in ways that lead to true effectiveness. Geoff Blades is one of those people. He’s not only figured it out for his own life but helps Wall Street professionals and large companies design and implement systems through every aspect of their existence in order to create greater results and more of what they truly want. In this conversation, Ari and Nick chat with Geoff about his journey to discovering how to get what he wants, why systems are the key for every person, and how systematizing your life can lead to the goals you really want. You should do everything you can to clear out the space to listen to this episode. What does it mean to systematize your career? Here are Geoff Blades’ 5 steps to do it. How often have you thought of your career as a series of causes and effects? It’s more common to conceive of a career in terms of things that happen TO you rather than a series of events that come about because of things YOU have done. But Geoff Blades has discovered that anyone can orient their own career path in the direction of their biggest goals if they are willing to get crystal clear on what those goals are and put the systems in place that will serve those goals. It’s an intriguing concept that makes total sense, and you’ll hear Geoff describe how it works on this episode of Leverage. The power of defining your goal: you can’t go anywhere if you miss this. Many people wind up hating their jobs simply because they can’t see how the job serves the end goals they have for life itself.  But deeper than that is a more significant problem: few people have truly clarified what they are aiming at in life in the first place. Geoff Blades says that you have no chance of attaining anything you really want in life if you don’t know what it is. It’s common sense when he says it that way - and on this episode, he explains how he helps his clients get super clear on their goals and systematize their lives to reach them. What holds people back is the unwillingness to move through their fears. One of the most common barriers to people accomplishing their goals is fear. But a layer down from the fear itself is this reality - most people are so inhibited by the fear that they won’t commit to doing whatever it takes to move through it and overcome it. That’s the real issue. Geoff Blades has come to that realization and has an uncanny way of helping people recognize their fears, learn how to face them, and conquer them for the sake of creating the life they really want. You’ve got to hear this conversation with Geoff. How do you win and how can you systematize winning? When it comes to success in life, Geoff Woods says that it all comes down to asking one simple question: How do you win in life? That’s the issue of getting clarity about your goals - and the answer will be different for every person. But once you have that goal clearly defined you need to go a step further and discover the systems you can intentionally build and put in place to make sure you hit those goals without fail. Find out how Geoff’s book can help you get the clarity you need to pursue and systematize your goals for life, on this episode.

  • How to Identify, Prioritize, and Do the Most Important Thing in Your Life with Geoff Woods - Episode #281

    · 00:16:59 · The Less Doing Podcast with Ari Meisel: The Best Life Hacks And Productivity Tips For Less Doing, More Living

    None of us want to waste our lives on trivial things. That’s why we care about productivity and working effectively. Geoff Woods says it’s therefore vital that we discover the most important thing we need to accomplish at any given time. It’s the singular focus that has enabled him and the organization he works with to become a world-class leader in their industry. Geoff is on the show to chat about his life-changing experience over the last year as CEO of the new “One Thing” company alongside Jay Papasan and Gary Keller. What he shares on this episode is simple but powerful. You won’t want to miss it. The most important thing is the most important thing.  There are many things that crowd into our lives, seeking our attention and energy. But the most important things are simply that - the most important things. And Geoff Woods would argue that we don’t have the capacity to effectively focus on more than one thing at a time. That’s why we must simplify our “to dos” - boiling them down to one main thing that deserves our focus. It’s not easy to explain in a short paragraph, but you're in luck - because Geoff explains it in detail, in this conversation, so don’t miss it.  You don’t have the right to think of tasks down the line until you complete the first task. I huge mindset shift included in “The One Thing” approach to productivity that Geoff Woods describes on this episode, is that even though you may have decided upon steps you need to accomplish to move you toward a certain goal, you haven’t earned the right to work on or consider the things that are later on your list until you’ve completed those listed first. This concept is at the heart of doing the most important things first so that you are more productive and eventually successful at accomplishing your greater goals. Find out how it works, on this episode. How can you identify your “one thing?”  One of the hardest aspects of productivity is the process of discovering what things are actually the most important to accomplish. Geoff Woods has learned from his mentor, Gary Keller that a singular focus on one thing until it is accomplished, makes him productive at an accelerated rate and moves the needle to a greater degree. How do you discover what is most important for you to do? And is it always a major task, or can it sometimes be a simple, small one that simply must come first? Geoff explains the powerful “One Thing” approach in detail, on this episode. When you say “yes” to other people, you’re saying “no” to yourself.  When Ari asked Geoff for 3 pieces of advice to those who want to be more effective, Geoff's first piece of advice was that most people need to learn how to say “no” to more things. He made the point that when you say “yes” to other people, you’re saying “no” to yourself - and more specifically, to the things you’ve determined are most important for you to accomplish. Geoff has a great way of explaining the nuances surrounding these kinds of decisions, so be sure you give yourself the opportunity to learn from him by listening to this episode.  Outline of This Episode [0:03] Ari’s introduction to Geoff Woods and his history. [1:41] What is “The 1 Thing” concept Gary Keller has written about? [2:05] The life-changing year Geoff has lived alongside Gary Keller and Jay Papasan. [4:37] The framework for identifying your “one thing” in each area of life, and how to choose which one to start with. [6:03] How big or small should your “one thing” be? [8:22] The vital nature of systems to recruit amazing, talented people. [11:07] How the KW team uses their “411” tool to identify the big tasks to do each week. [13:30] Using the “one thing” approach to work effectively as a team.

  • Geoff Woods: From Employee to Entrepreneur - The Power of Finding a Mentor

    · 00:45:34 · The Bold Life Movement with Kimberly Rich

    Get ready for an extremely powerful and emotional episode of The Bold Life Movement. Today’s guest is Geoff Woods, host of The Mentee podcast, General Manager of the Publishing Division at Keller Williams Realty, Inc., and currently building a business with Jay Papasan at Geoff worked in medical device sales for five years. He made a good living selling a device that actually saved lives, but he knew he was meant for more. He knew he wanted to own a business that made a massive impact and provided financial security for his family, but he didn’t have a compelling reason to make a change. “I didn’t have a compelling reason to make change. There wasn’t enough pain in my life that forced me to make change.” In one week, things changed dramatically. One of his colleagues suffered a stroke at 35, and then his income was slashed by 40 percent. Geoff was compelled to move forward, and that’s when he heard the Jim Rohn quote, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” None of Geoff’s five closest people were doing what he wanted to do – owning a business that made an impact in the world and provided financial security – and he realized that he could either take the easy road or the hard road to level up his five. The Hard Road – Setting a goal, settling a plan and figuring out how to get it done. You’re waking up every day and guessing. The Easy Road – Establish what you want, meet the people who already do it and let them tell you what to do. “I can take the easy road or the hard road. Most people are offered this choice everyday, and they don’t realize they’re choosing the hard road.” How did Geoff connect with the mentors that inspired him along the way? He started by gaining clarity on what it was that he wanted and identifying the people who inspired him. Then, when given the opportunity to speak with his ideal mentors, he dropped his ego and made himself vulnerable. There’s two ways to make the initial connection with your ideal mentors: The Six Degrees of Separation – The idea that you can be connected to anyone in the world through six connections. Be a Connector – Go out of your way to add value to the people around you. “If you become a person who goes out of their way to add value, people will go out of their way to be in a relationship with you.” “Extraordinary results are not hard.” Every time I talk to Geoff he blows my mind. I really wanted to share his powerful story because it demonstrates that we can choose to make our lives more Bold, and we can all have a massive impact on the world.

For people who don’t know what it is they’re looking for, what types of mentors should they be surrounding themselves with? How do people get that mentor-mentee relationship kicked off?

    Geoff Woods is the Vice President of The ONE Thing Team. After hearing the Jim Rohn quote that "you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with" Geoff set out on a mission to surround himself with high level CEOs and successful entrepreneurs. Fast forward just 10 months, Geoff went from employee to entrepreneur, launching a company with the co-authors of the best selling book The ONE Thing. Geoff has been featured in and is on a mission to teaching people how to live a life of focus so they can have more by doing less. S tarting out in medical device sales, Geoff has found that one of his biggest life transitions happened only about 18 months ago. It just goes to show you that, “it’s never too late!” Leaving a secure job, especially when the pay is substantial, isn't always easy. But what comes easily, isn't usually what’s “right.” Like many of us, Geoff knew something was off, something was missing from his day to day life. Unfortunately, yet luckily, two major events really hit Geoff right where he needed it. After witnessing a young colleague of his suffer a stroke and after receiving a 40% pay cut, it was time for him to make some serious life changes. “You are the average of the 5 people that you spend the most time with.” -Jim Rohn Surrounding yourself with those who can help you reach your goals is one of the fastest ways to success. After launching his own podcast The Mentee, in January 2015, doors of opportunity began to open, bringing him and his family to Texas to work with Gary Keller and Jay Papasan for “The ONE thing.” Flashing forward to today and the accomplishments he has made for himself, Geoff goes on to tell us about the important art of time blocking! “Every single day you are either marching towards your goals or stepping further away.” He teaches us that doing the same one thing a day may not seem significant, but if you stack it up over a period of time, as you know the day will come where you look in the mirror and not even recognize yourself. This could go one of two ways. The reflection you see in the mirror can be someone you've always wanted to be and who you are proud of, or someone you have lost sight of altogether. From this day forward, I am challenging you all to time-blocking. For yourself, your health, your ultimate goals and your dream life. “In all of our research it shows that it takes 66 days to form a habit.” Quit biting off more than you can chew. Whether it be your first time ever or not, set a goal, no matter the size and stick to it! Join the challenge and you can thank me later.

  • SFN162: Geoff Woods On Strategically Adding Value To Others

    · 00:30:47 · Starting from Nothing - The Foundation Podcast | Building your business ENTIRELY from scratch.

    Geoff Woods is the host of The Mentee Podcast and an alumni of The Foundation, who went from having a 6-figure sales job to becoming a full-time entrepreneur. Geoff was going through The Foundation’s “Idea Extraction” process when he realized that SaaS was not a good fit for him. Instead he made a pivot to focus on something he was much more passionate about building, which ended up being his podcast, The Mentee. Because of the guidance from his mentors, Geoff was able to monetize within three months of launch. In Part 2 of this interview, Geoff breaks down the steps to meet the top influencers in your industry. Plus he fulfills his promise to share the strategies he used to become a contributor on within a mere three weeks, and how you can do it too!     In This Interview I Ask: 2:26 - Take us through the process of what it looked like for you to find your own billionaire mentor. 5:46 - How can you, wherever you are right now, start tapping into people who are lightyears beyond you? 6:57 - How can other people go out and replicate what you’ve done? 8:10 - How did you acquire the energy, conviction and desire to be committed to your actions? 29:25 - Where can I go to receive this type training to replicate what you’ve done?     3 Steps to Strategically Add Value to People Who Can Help You Accomplish Your Goals Get Clarity on Where You Need Help Ask yourself the following questions, and describe each answer in one sentence: Out of everything you’re working on right now, what is the ONE thing that you need the most help with? How would you describe the ideal person who could help guide you with your ONE thing?   Tell People Where You Need Help and They Will Rise Up and Support You. “80% of everything you need is already within your circle of influence.” When you share what you’re working on and where you need help, people can’t resist the desire to want to help you. Either that person you talk to will be the person you need, or you plant the seed in their mind so when they come across a person who fits the mold, they’ll consider making that connection. Example: When you touch based with someone and they ask “What’s up?” you can say, “You know, I realized that I need to surround myself with some really great people who just eat, sleep, breath [topic of expertise].” When you share these needs with the people who care about you, they naturally feel compelled to help you .   Strategically show up every day and focus on adding value to one person at a time consistently. Ask each person, What are you working on? How can I help you? Know that they will share a piece of information, and even if you are not their answer directly, you may know the person who is able to help. Either way, you plant the seed and that connection will eventually happen. Never ask a successful person out to coffee to “pick their brain.” This is basically asking them to give you their free time. The answer is obviously no. The moment Geoff learned to become the person who just look to see how can I add value to them to every relationship, he started to find that people bent over backwards to help him.     How to become a contributor on any publication in three weeks A common rookie mistake in an attempt to become a contributor on any publication would be to try to connect directly with its editor and pitch them your article. Instead, Geoff followed his 3-step process: He became clear on his goal: Geoff wanted to become a contributing writer on He started targeting contributing writers. This was the script he used: “Hey, I’m seeking guidance. I see that you’ve written for Entrepreneur. I’m really curious about your journey, and the impact it’s had on you. I’m going through these crossroads in my life, and frankly I wanted to ask for your help. Would you be willing to spend 10-15 minutes with me sharing your journey? I promise I will find a way to add value to you. PS: I already shared your most recent post.” Finally he was recommended to the editor (which shows incredible valuable). He then asked the editor “Hey, how can I make you look good? What does it take to write a great post?” Then Geoff took the editor’s feedback and went to work.     Playing the “Long Game” When you meet somebody, you may have a long term hope of how they can help you, but if you just go for the ask, it won’t help you. It’s more rewarding to have a long term relationship. “[When] you fast forward to the end of your life, it’s going to be the experiences you shared and the people you shared them with.” Every time you approach somebody, they’re a puzzle piece. You have no idea what role they will play in your life, but you figure out where they need help and you file it away. Over time you start finding pieces that fit together, and when you connect those people, tremendous value is created and ultimately the vision of your life is unfolded.    Show Links: Listen to The Mentee, podcast Download 7 Easy Steps to Meet the Top 7 People in Your Industry, Get Geoff’s FREE Training,

    · 00:56:46 · RunRunLive 4.0 - Running Podcast

    The RunRunLive 4.0 Podcast Episode 4-322 – Geoff Smith -1984 & 85 Boston Marathon Champ(Audio: link) [audio:]Link epi4322.mp3MarathonBQ – How to Qualify for the Boston Marathon in 14 Weeks - there my strange running friends. How are you? I’m great. Fantastic. Nothing to complain about. Full of joy and abundance. Which, if I’m honest with you, takes a lot of work. It’s officially the end of summer in New England. The nights are clear and cold. The mornings are crisp like a fresh, clean blanket. The sun sets later and comes up later, noticeably each day. When I was a youth in school I would hate this time of year. School starting meant the end of a summers’ long and languid lethargy. The weather would turn but not enough to be interesting. There wouldn’t be any snow to sled on or build with for weeks. The days would be short, dim, cold, windy, rainy and filled with work. Now, Buddy and I, in, perhaps the autumn of our own times feel somehow reborn into the crispness of fall. He roams the house wild eyed and vocal beseeching me to get up, get out and seize the leaf covered forest trails - for that is where we live if only for another year, another day, another fine afternoon or another run. We pad through the fall forests with the leaves crunching underfoot on the dry trail. The underbrush and weeds spent and brown hanging with their last offering of seeds to be blown on the wind to settle another generation. Only the wild asters weighed down by their purple froth brighten the trail. The bees harry them with suicidal intensity and a lack of humor that is to be avoided by the cautious runner. We run, man and dog, weaving through the trees with the sharp afternoon sun lancing through at us from an acute angle like a photgrapher’s darkroom light. The motes of dust swirling in our mists and settling in our wake. The tang of wild grapes bites at the air and brings a smile to my heart. The apple trees in the orchard hang thick with fruit. Man and dog. Brothers on the road and trail. Buddy still gets along fairly well for an 80 year old. Like all of us he thinks he can do more than he can. He talks me into it and then he regrets it the next day. With the cool weather he feels a need to get out and play and move. What I often hear when I check in from on the road is “Your dog is crazy!” It’s been a long autumn. I’ve traveled every week that I can remember. I’m doing ok. I’m getting my runs in for the most part and feel fairly strong. I’ve started to play with speed work and I’ll talk about that a bit today. You can’t just throw the switch. You have to build into the speed work when you’ve been away for a while. I’ve got a long chat with Geoff Smith today. Geoff won the 1984 and the 1985 Boston Marathon. If you know about the history of the race you may know that these were hard times for the Boston Marathon. It was founded by the BAA in 1896 as an amateur race. The prize was always a simple olive wreath. It was serious race, for serious runners and serious runners were thought to be the amateurs who ran for the love of the race. Geoff was the last person to win the Boston Marathon before there was prize money. He did it for love. The pressure of other big-city races offering prize money threatened to relegate Boston to a quaint artifact of the 19th century. A local financial institution stepped in and kept the race alive as they transitioned to a prize money structure. I didn’t know Geoff was living locally until I got a tweet from him asking me to retweet one of his races. This chat gave me a chance to talk about what is for me, the golden age of US marathoning. I’ll also chat a bit about the power of self-awareness. I’ve been feeling a bit pressed these last few weeks with the level of travel and the amount of stuff I’m trying to do. I also am thinking of mortality as I see my running partner struggle with age. This time of year is a bit of a whirlwind for all of us. The leisure of the summer passes abruptly into the intensity of the school year. Work gets crazy. Personal commitments pile up. People get over-tired. The kids bring home the first good crop of viruses to mix into the social fray. And so we find ourselves in October tired and sick and bubbling with stress. We have strategies to cope but our armor gets dinged from the continuous hits. The car needs work, the house needs repair the kids need new equipment and a ride to practice. We feel out of control and driven mad, losing that grip we thought we had on life. But, my friends, you are not alone. Don’t let circumstance drive you crazy. There is nothing in the environment that you can’t choose to live with and work with and, yes, even enjoy. Just take that time to close your eyes and take one long, deep breath. Exhale the stress and smile at the next person you see. They may need it more than you do.

And you get a Santa suit. Believe it or not we had our first Groton Road Race meeting. April is just around the corner. It will be our 25th anniversary. Wow. This old dog has run every one. It’s my swan song race too. I’ll be passing the baton over to another race director. I’ve learned a lot in my tenure. I’m grateful for the tribe that kept this race a grand and glorious spring ritual for my old home town. I’m testing myself a bit with some speed work. But I feel strong. I think my plan of a January qualification race with the Groton Marathon as a last long run is a pretty good idea. I’d love to get some of you out for the Groton Marathon. This is a self-supported 26.2 mile run that we invented for December because there weren’t any good races around the holidays and we wanted to get a marathon in. Let me think on that some more. I’d prefer not to have to spend any money on it but maybe I can put up a web-page and make it official enough to have it recognized by the Maniacs or something. I’ll probably run Boston. I’m not qualified but these things have a way of working out for me. If I get the privilege of running it again this year, and God help me, I can’t how many I’ve run, I’m going to use my talents to do something really big for the charity and the community and the sport. The more I work through my self-awareness process, the more I find myself thinking that I’ve been playing a small game. I know people see me form the outside and maybe see untapped intellect and wonder why I haven’t done more. At least that’s what I wonder. I think that we all can do more than we think. I read a book by fellow runner Bill Dowis this week and his narrative is similar to my own and so many others and maybe yours. The narrative is that we are muddling along with our lives, doing ok, and somehow, somewhere, sometime find endurance sports. It catches us by surprise. It catches us by the shirt collar, slaps us in the face, stares deeply into our souls and says “you are capable of more than you think!” I think YOU are capable of more than YOU think. I beginning to know I am. I’m not talking about running a marathon. I’m talking about finding something in your life that you don’t think you can do and going after it with ferocity and hard work. Not being afraid to fail and not being afraid to succeed. Go into that thing with only one object – to learn about yourself and what you’re capable of. And maybe you’ll be surprised. And I’ll see you out there. – How to Qualify for the Boston Marathon in 14 Weeks -

  • SFN161: Geoff Woods On the Importance Of Mentorship

    · 00:25:02 · Starting from Nothing - The Foundation Podcast | Building your business ENTIRELY from scratch.

    Geoff Woods is the host of The Mentee Podcast and an alumni of The Foundation who went from having a 6-figure job to becoming a full-time entrepreneur. Geoff was going through The Foundation’s “Idea Extraction” process when he realized that SaaS was not a good fit for him. Instead he made a pivot to focus on something he was much more passionate about building and that was his podcast, The Mentee - which Geoff was able to monetize within three months of launching. In Part 1 of this interview, Geoff recalls the moment when he realized it was time to take the leap into entrepreneurship. He shares how he was quickly able to connect with successful people, get mentored by them, and then later interview them on his podcast. Geoff also talks about the importance of adding value, focusing on ONE thing, and taking continuous action in order to move closer to your goals. Also joining us in this special interview is tactical marketing extraordinaire, Ryan Twedt.   In This Interview I Ask: 5:58 - Back when you were a medical device rep, what would you say was your skillset in life? 7:34 - When you were considering the jump to entrepreneurship, what types of skills did you feel you were you lacking that you went to build out? 8:56 - When you were going through The Foundation, how did you that software as a service (SaaS) wasn’t for you? 13:34 - What’s the founding story of [The Mentee Podcast]? 16:39 - Tell us a story about the wackiest way you actually went about getting in contact with one of [your guests]?   Surround Yourself with Mentors There’s a Jim Rohn quote that say, “You’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with”. Take account of the five people you currently go to for advice. Are they qualified to help you accomplish your goals? If not, you need to find new mentors to surround yourself with; mentors who’ve already accomplished what you desire to accomplish.   Pro tip: If you want to surround yourself with millionaires and get them to mentor you, you have to find ways to add value to them. Example: IdeGeoff knew he didn’t need to know everything about podcasting to build his podcast; he just needed to know the people who did so he set out to become friends with Pat Flynn (Smart Passive Income) and Jordan Harbinger (Art of Charm).     Focus on One Thing “You have to win a gold medal at something.” - Jeff Hoffman (Priceline) There’s so many different options of paths to take as an entrepreneur, so many different types of business models. You need to figure out that one thing to focus on, and go win that gold medal. You need to eat, sleep, and breath that one thing before you scale out. Example: Amazon started off with books and won a gold medal buying and selling books. Today they could care less about books because they’ve been able to scale into something different.   Learn About What You Really Want by Taking Action You have no idea what detours you’re going to have to overcome. All you can focus on are the six feet in front of you at a time, but you keep moving. Slowly, but surely you end up getting to where you’re supposed to be going. Example: Geoff joined the Foundation and began working on his SaaS idea extraction for The Foundation until he realized that Saas was not for him. He was more passionate about his podcast so he he pivoted his focus towards that path.    Show Links: Listen to The Mentee, podcast Download 7 Easy Steps to Meet the Top 7 People in Your Industry,

  • Chris Tate: Understand The Science of Change & Create a Life Full Of Abundance

    · 00:50:52 · 180 Nutrition -The Health Sessions.

    This week welcome to the show Chris Tate. He is a coach who combines the latest scientific research with a process of self-discovery that provides people with the knowledge, skills and support necessary to experience a life full of abundance. He applies and teaches skills like metacognition and tools like meditation to recondition the body and subconscious mind to develop new habits and beliefs. Questions we ask in this episode: After 17 years in the corporate world, how did you make the transition into coaching? What is neuroscience? What is metacognition? How do we apply metacognition? How is it going to benefit our lives? What are the 3 key things we could start today, to enhance our lives? Shop: Our fantastic guest is Mr. Chris Tate. Now Chris … This was genuinely a podcast that was close to my heart and I was very, very excited about him. Just to fill you in the picture a bit. I’ve first met Chris working at a Dr. Joe Dispenza workshop last year and from that point he’s become a good friend and a mentor to me as well. I love his work and everything, what he’s about and what he’s doing. [00:01:00] Essentially, what Chris does is coach the understanding of neuroscience, metacognition, quantum physics, and meditation, so we can use these new ways to create change in our lives. Ultimately it’s the science of creating change if we’re feeling trapped, if we’re feeling a bit stuck in our lives or we want to make change or we’re in a to stress-response all the time, Chris has the tools and the understanding and the background behind it, of what’s actually going on, the chemical level within the body, and then once we have that understanding how we can actually create real changes in our lives. [00:02:00] Now I’ve been doing the work personally for over a year and it has been a game-changer for me. There are some big words that is used, neuroscience, metacognition, don’t worry about all of that, once we get into the topic today it will become much clearer. Once you can get beyond that the stuff is actually quite simple, but it’s not necessarily easy to implement because it’s quite challenging, but a phenomenal episode. Chris is a great guy, I’m so excited about being able to give this episode to you today and enjoy it. It might be one you might need to listen to a couple of times of course, just for it to sink in. I’m certainly going to listen to it again after I finish recording this, once it’s up on iTunes as well. Don’t forget as well, guys, I’ll just quickly mention, I haven’t mentioned it for a while, we do, do this in video and they are transcribed as well, so if you want to just sit down and see our pretty faces for a while instead. We do have different mediums, and of course the transcripts can be read and that’s all back on, and of course we’ve got a host of other things there as well from free downloads to [inaudible 00:02:23] articles and everything to the products. You name it, it’s all in there. [00:03:00] If you’ve never been back there before go on have a sniff around and see what you think, and simply drop us an e-mail as well, and of course if you get a lot out of this podcast please share it on with someone that you think might benefit from this and get them to listen to it, because it is changing people’s lives and it’s phenomenal. By leaving a review on iTunes as well and subscribing to the podcast and five-starring it, it’s a simple action, but it really helps spread this message along with us. Everything you do, guys, is greatly appreciated and I hope you’re enjoying the episodes that we are bringing to you because I’m pumped, I’m loving it. We’ve got some amazing guests coming up very shortly too, including Mark Divine, Gregg Braden, and Amy Myers as well, are all booked in, and there’s more coming up as well. Anyway, I’ve got to stop talking, let’s go over to Chris Tate. This is awesome, enjoy. Hey, this is Guy Lawrence, I’m joined with Stuart Cooke as always. Hey Stu, good morning. Stu Good morning, Guy. Guy Our awesome guest today is Mr. Christ Tate, and I should say good afternoon over there. Hey, mate. Chris Hey mate, how are are you? Guy Welcome. Chris Good to see you, guys. Guy Welcome to this, it’s wonderful. Chris Thank you. Thank you. Guy Apparently it’s snowing where he is, mate, we’ve got it good over here. Stu Did you say snow? Chris It is. It’s white outside. Stu I’ve heard of that strange phenomenon, but I haven’t experienced it. Chris Well, I’ll send some in your way, we have plenty. Stu Please do. Guy [00:04:00] Chris, look, first of all, thanks for taking time out and joining us today, it’s really appreciated. Topic, I love personally and to be able to share it today on the podcast is going to be phenomenal. The first little question I’m going to ask you before we get into it is, if you were on a cocktail party and you were in a room full of strangers and one came up to you and said, “Well, hi, what do you do for a living?” What would you say? Chris [00:04:30] I’d run. You know, I tell people that I’m a translator. I teach a form of life coaching, which is basically just a way of saying how to live life that incorporates neuroscience, quantum physics and meditation, really, all I do is I share my own personal story with folks. I’m not a scientist, I’m not a doctor, I’m literally just a guy that identified a place in his life that needed to change and I did it. I did all the steps that all the gurus said to do, and lo and behold I learned a lot and now I have an awesome life. I really just share my own path. Full Transcript & Video Version:
