Be Aware Of Your Energetic Vibrations

Bruce Langford and I speak about living Mindfully and how this can help you create the life that you want, and being aware of the conversation going on in your mind.

Podcast Notes

Effect on Emotions

  • To me, an emotion or a feeling is a word that we give to an awareness of a vibration. Why that's important to me is, I've been reading a book called The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer and what I appreciate about the book is he talks about our emotions. If we're scared of them then we live our lives trying to protect ourselves from our emotions and we create this incredibly crazy complex life full of emotional interactions.
  • If we can just see our emotions as energy, they don't mean anything to who we are … that distinction between our higher self and our ego-driven mind.
  • What I find myself doing now when I feel a strong energy, I try not to label it as a particular emotion. I let it rise up in my heart and my chest. I let it find a way out. Almost like letting the gas bubbles in a bottle escape.
  • If I suppress it or try to change my behaviour, or change the external world in some way, then all I'm doing is keeping that locked in. And so it just keeps returning.
  • How mindfulness has really helped me is, I've become much more aware of those energetic vibrations. I've got a completely different relationship with them now. I get less fearful of them and I now allow them to arise in their energetic form and not connect to the stories that I hold around those energetic vibrations, those emotions, and just watch them pass.
  • I feel so much more resilient and able to deal with situations.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • I have a series of affirmations I say every day and one of them is, I breathe deeply into my belly.
  • I had a yoga teacher one who said, if men just breathed properly into their bellies, then 90 percent of the problems we go to therapists around, would be solved.
  • The breath is a fundamental connection.
  • When I'm meditating that's what I use as my focal point.
  •  I bring my awareness and my attention to my breathing. Breath is something which opens me, which expands me, which connects me to the greater cosmos.

Igniting The Fire Within

This episode is a conversation with Byron Ingraham and we delve into my purpose of wanting to help individuals reignite the fire within them, that they had when they were younger.

Podcast Notes

The pivotal point in his career was hiring a coach who reconnected him with the joy he originally experienced in life.

When people are in their 20s, there is often the feeling to change the world.  However, as time progresses in the corporate world, this burning desire fades along with passion in life.

As a result of working with a life coach, this compelled Simon to become a coach himself.  In the beginning, it started with helping individuals through life coaching, and now it has evolved into experiential coaching.

His purpose is to help individuals reignite the fire within them they had when they were younger.

Ultimately people in life want to move past stability, as what people desire most is the opportunity to grow.  People will often find excuses to keep them from following their passions in life.  One of the most common one people utilizes as an excuse are benefits.  Most people choose careers or companies based on the benefits they provide, even though the job might leave them hollow.

The one thing Simon recommends for individuals to do is to sit down & reflect on what things in life give the most pleasure.  Think about what life would be like if you lived it based on what you are passionate about while serving others.  Ask yourself what would your day to day life look like.  Think about what you can create in your life based on this new perspective.

Creating The Impossible Mission

Overcoming Fear And Building Confidence

Kingsley Grant and I discuss how confidence is not something you wait for. It is something that comes by you simply taking action over and over again. (Episode 254)

Podcast Notes

Overcoming FEAR can at times be quite challenging. Add to that the desire to build confidence. When we see others operating at their full potential or at capacity, we wonder why that is not true of us. At least, I do. What you'll discover in this episode is that confidence is not something you wait for, it is something that comes by you simply taking action over and over again. The more those action steps are taken, the more confidence will be built.  In so doing, fear will have to take a back seat and move from being behind the wheel.

Going Deep With Your Clients

I speak to Millette Jones about looking for commitment, living in a transformational space, and wanting to bring that experince into my coaching.

Podcast Notes

The Beginning

He's been coaching for 11 years. Before he got into coaching he was a manager in corporate and was very unhappy in his position. He had the opportunity to work with a coach in his business and after three months of coaching he left his position and took a different position but this experience really piqued his interest in being a coach.

Low Point

He started out doing more training than coaching, working with corporations and wasn't really happy with how his business was going.

He read The Prosperous Coach and made a big shift in his business about three years ago. He started out doing transactional coaching and has now moved to transformational coaching. He helps people bring all types of things into their experience whether that is in their life or business.

Momentum

I live my life in a transformational space...and I want to bring that experience into my coaching.

What I'm looking for is commitment and I really filter for commitment. People have to ready to make the choice to go on that journey. And not everybody is.

He serves everybody, he always looks for ways to help people. He is always open to having a conversation even if that conversation doesn't lead to a coaching contract. He keeps his prices quite high so it filters out all but the most committed person.

Big Win

The impact of the work he does with his clients. He only works with people that inspire him, who he wants to spend time with and he looks forward to coaching. He has immense pride in their accomplishments.

Understand Your Value

Understand the value of what you offer, and help the person you are serving to understand the value of what you offer. Even if you aren't going to charge them for the coaching. You can offer free coaching to build up your skill set, build confidence, make exchanges for testimonials or case study material but make sure it is a value exchange.

Future

He's working with a community in Liberia to build a school. He takes some of his clients with him when he goes there to work. He's also planning to take some leadership teams he's coaching to Liberia in the future.

Revenue

One on one clients, group program for coaching apprentices.

New Client Attraction

Referrals, word of mouth.

Best Advice

Have a supplementary income when you get started. He started out going to part-time with his company. Later he was doing corporate training, so he didn't have to rely on the coaching at first to pay the bills.

Get a coach. Start to connect with people in a way that is meaningful to you. What coaches need to do when they come into the profession is to get to the point of really understanding the value of what they are offering.

Habit or Skill - Slowing down. Going deep rather than wide. Develop relationships with people.

Quality - Willingness to not know. Be comfortable not knowing how your client will achieve what they want, be in the space of creation. Be comfortable with discomfort.

My Passion For Liberia

In this podcast, I talk to Nathan Seaward about my passion and love for Liberia, my desire to build a school in one of the communities and some of the challenges and conflicts that come from being in a place such as this. (Episode 9).

Podcast Notes

In this episode, we're live and unedited from Liberia, West Africa where I have a personal conversation with the powerful Simon Crowe!

Simon is a beautiful human that brings groups of people to Liberia to help them understand themselves at a deeper level and reconnect with their humanity. He first visited Liberia in 2014 when he fell in love with the beautiful lush rainforests and the wonderful smiles and welcomes from the local Liberians. Liberia has been struggling to recover from a long civil war leaving it as one of the poorest nations in the world and also one of the most corrupt. More recently, the country was hit hard by the Ebola crisis.

I was lucky to be led by Simon over 10 days as we explored rural villages and met hundreds of beautiful people that are starved of all the things that we take for granted. Clean water, showers, electricity, regular meals and even love and connection. We also met inspiring leaders that want to change the face of Liberia and see it prosper for future generations.

I'm so grateful to Simon for bringing me to this wonderful country. He helped me see that I had a real fear of connecting with people and has guided me to open my heart and connect with strangers on a level I never thought possible. This is truly a remarkable man and I'm so excited to have him on the show.

In this episode, we talk deeply about Simon's passion and love for Liberia, his desire to build a school in one of the communities here and some of the challenges and conflicts that come from being in a place such as this.  Show references and more at nathanseaward.com

People Don't Buy What You Do, They Buy Why You Do It

Entrepreneurial Role Models

Simon’s coach, John P. Morgan

Bob Proctor

When business started difficulties overcame

“I don’t know if I thought of myself as an entrepreneur in the sense I was in a job that I hated, I discovered something called coaching which I loved and by default I had to find how to create a business so the thing that got in my way wasn’t just simply self-belief because I really knew I wanted to step into coaching but I’d never done it before and so I spent a long time not knowing how to make the transition from working and being paid by an organisation to being paid by myself”

Best Advice to Other Entrepreneurs

“Do what makes your eyes shine, find that thing in you which you feel passionate about, there’s a great guy called Simon Sinek, he has some great resources online, he talks about your why, and that’s your reason for doing whatever it is that you do and he has this wonderful quote which is People don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it, and that really speaks volumes, if you do something because you just want to make some money, then people will really understand that that’s your reason for it and they won’t necessarily feel particularly inspired but if you know why somebody does something that aligns with their values, their passions, their desires, their dreams, then that’s the energy that people communicate with, that’s when people will buy your services or products”

Neil’s Quote at the Beginning

“A prudent question is one-half of wisdom.” Francis Bacon

Other Quotes From the Chat with Simon Crowe

“The thinking or belief or thinking habits which have got you to where you are, fantastic, but they are exactly what are stopping you from getting to where you want to be”

“A lot of people live things the wrong way around, they look at the external before they look at the internal”

Say YES To Your Bold Vision

In this interview, I speak to Nicole Jansen about the tools to transform our thinking, fulfil our wildest dreams, and leave our mark on humanity.

Podcast Notes

What is your bold vision and what is required in order for you to transform it into reality?

In today’s episode, UK-based Transformational Coach, Simon Crowe, takes us on a mind-expanding journey as he describes his adventures in leadership and transformation, and how you can use your curiosity and creativity to heal the world.

As Simon shares his heartfelt stories, including describing his own passion project for building a school in Liberia, he weaves in vital leadership principles, steps on how to shift your mindset, and how to move from being resource-driven to resourceful, where you’re able to connect to the vast opportunities around you.

Money is not a limiter, rather, our mindset is the only thing standing in the way of us fulfilling our bold visions. In this interview, Simon gives us the tools to transform our thinking, fulfil our wildest dreams, and leave our mark on humanity.

Key Takeaways

1) When you start to feel rather than think, your construct of the world changes.

2) Rather than focusing on your lack of resources, develop a mindset of resourcefulness so you can see the opportunities already around you and be able to connect to them.

3) Rather than ask, “What can I do?” ask yourself, “How can I be?” This is where true transformation begins.

4) Harness the power of affirmations in changing your mindset.

5) Anything you commit consistent action to will have a lasting impact.
