Self-Improvement

Exploring the creativity of the human spirit with just five simple questions. Those questions give us a window to explore the journey and life story of people that look like they have it sorted.

Episodes

In this show, we are exploring freedom, making choices and living the life you want to live, but more importantly, we are looking at the value of caring.  

We all care about those close to us, family and friends, but what about other people? Caring is an underrated value. My guest's formative years were at a unique school where he learned the value and importance of caring. It has shaped his life and work, bringing him everything he ever wanted.

Matt Ward was born the 3rd child to a low-income family with problems. He is the only sibling to finish High school, go to college and avoid prison.

How he avoided the path to jail is down to the universe giving him a break. At the age of 10 (sixth grade), he received a scholarship to the Milton Hershey Boarding School.

Attending this school put Matt on a new path; it taught him values, one of which was caring, and it became the theme of his life.

He left the Hershey School and went to college, he was interested and hotel and restaurant management, but that did not work out for him, as he did not have the interest or patience for cooking.

While volunteering at a youth football club in 1999, an opportunity appeared.  They needed a website for this new internet craze, and Matt got asked to build it. Once other clubs saw the result, they all wanted a website, so he started a web design business. 

The business grew year on year and employed eight people. Matt’s focus was always sales and relationships. He particularly enjoyed speaking at events and meeting people.

By 2018 the business was still growing but not feeding his soul; he was working hard but felt he was going nowhere. He sold it to one of his employees for a seven-figure sum and stepped out into the world of professional speaking.

Our conversation as always is about the journey. It is about self-discovery,  the moving towards freedom and living by the phrase “ Do me ”. 

We talk about friendship and building relationships, it is a place where men often struggle when the context is outside of work.  Matt thrives around the idea of freedom and the joy of living. His purpose is speaking and sharing the concept of caring but also about sharing the school that changed his life.

Since starting on his speaking journey, Matt has written three books,  The host at The Mass Business Podcast, a paid keynote speaker and a word-of-mouth referral consultant.

Is there something that really gets you mad? Why, and have you ever unpacked it?

This show will cover where anger comes from and offer some simple techniques that you can use to deal with anger in everyday situations.

 

We all get angry from time to time; the modern world expects us to. I get riled by politics and social media and the stuff that life throws at me from time to time.

The media feeds on our anger and seeks to torment us because by feeding our righteous indignation, it creates promotes comments and continues the conversations. That means more opportunity to stoke opinions and show adverts.

But why do we get so angry?

Today's podcast is the first in the series I promised to look at Feelings and emotions last week. We start with a big one, anger, and wow, there is so much of it.


So its simplest form, we get angry because the world around us does not fit the picture we have of it. Or there is an unmet need inside of us. So anger does not come from the outside; it's generated from within you.

The exciting thing about anger is that it presents an opportunity to recognise that change needs to happen and can provide us with the fuel to make that change.

Are you setting your course, are you taking that first step?  

My guest on the show is an example of someone living a good life by design a man who came from humble beginnings.  

Rocky Lalvani was born in India, when he was two years old, the family emigrated to the US, and while it was a great opportunity, the family had to start at the bottom. 

It was a tough beginning, but they worked hard as immigrant families do, the American dream inspired them, and they built their wealth.

During Rocky’s early life, there were lots of success and money conversations with other ex-pat communities.  While listening to these family chats, he learned the importance of negotiation and how to hustle. 

Starting with his paper route, he discovers how good service leads to good tips. At college, he was buying and selling stuff until he secured a real-estate licence to sell properties.

After finishing high school and going to college, he did a degree in Economics and went out into the world to work.

He did many jobs and eventually built a solid business creating operational and management spreadsheets for small businesses.

Rocky’s challenge was that he found it almost impossible to take the first steps and move his life forward. Our conversation is not about the work he did but the wisdom he developed. We touch on mentors, health, fitness, food and more. All of the steps that help him move forward and build the life he wanted.

Today Rocky calls himself the Chief Profitability Adviser for business owners. He teaches them how to ensure they get paid and that they make pro

Were you aware of any strong feelings or emotions this week?

We are about to start a series of shortcast on the theme of feeling and emotion, and today I thought to explore why I have come to this. 

I realised that I could go a whole week and not be aware of my emotions. Now the reality is I have them, but they are being experienced without my awareness.

There is every possibility that I am reacting to these triggered emotions and may be acting inappropriately, given the situation.

I got onto this thinking train because I had an emotional response to a piece of music on a playlist.

We live in a world designed to trigger our emotions. We are being pushed to react our feelings are a big part of our lives, and yet we give them so little thought.


Join me in this short exploration of why it is vital that we become aware of our thoughts and feelings.

And yes, there is a little bit of homework if you want it.  ( Smile )

Our conversation is a little different this week as this story has no fall, crash or upheaval. However, it is about good communication and the search for meaning and purpose.

My guest is unusual in that he is younger than most. What makes him interesting is he is the third generation of a thriving family business. The transition between father and son was without drama. 

Steve Cook was born in Oklahoma and has never left. 

As a child, Steve mirrored his dad and wanted to be like him. As he went to college, his Dad became a restauranter, and steve followed that interest in his studies.

By the time Steve was leaving college, the family had sold the restaurant and bought into the family horse feed business.

On stepping out into the world of work, Steve considered various careers before entering the family business. There is a lot of potential baggage when it comes to working with family.

Our conversation is about his journey into the business, finding his feet up to the point where he took it over. The company is one of the largest feed suppliers in the USA, which is due to the successful working relationship between Steve and his father.

We take about his challenges and, of course, the usual five questions.

Steve did not say he was passionate about horse feed, but he is passionate about business and what it takes to run it well.

That is how we met as steve is the host of the Better Business Podcast and squeezing the sponge is his view on getting the most out of life.

It is time to look at your story and see if it still fits in a changing world because try as you might ignore what is happening it will still happen.

As someone who is passionate about moving people forward, I have been doing a lot of thinking about where I'm going and what I offer, and that is making me do is re-evaluate my story.

The podcast was born out of the same impulse, looking at change and finding role models that could lead me in my change.

It worked, here we are four years later, and I have discovered what it is that makes all of the difference.  Your story, the narrative that you live and breathe.

In this show, we explore why having a living story is important and how you can develop a story, path or narrative that matters to you.   


At the end of the day, we must do the work to build our resilience and create the life we want to live. In my opinion that is the power of the five questions.

Now you can use the questions on the home page of the website or you can go to the resources tab and buy the workbook that will take you through the process.

I had heard it said that for most people, 50% of our battles had been won before we got here. It is hard to appreciate what some people go through until you hear stories in the media or on podcasts like mine. 

Our conversation today is a story of trauma, forgiveness and healing. It has a happy ending, but wow, the journey to get there was hard.  

 

Wendy Hargett was born on a wooden fishing boat in Hawaii, the third unwanted child in a  low-income family. 

 

She was adopted within weeks, but it was an unstable relationship, and her adoptive parents divorced when she was still in nappies. Her adoptive father brought her up in a single-parent family, which were some of her happiest memories.

Her grandmother became a pivotal figure in her young life, and that relationship will become significant later. 

 

The family moved a lot for economic reasons, and while it was loving childhood, it was not happy. Her father eventually remarried when she was seven; sadly, her stepmom was abusive. Three years later, she was shipped off across the country to a religious commune, which was also abusive.  

 

Rejected by her family again, she could see no end to her mystery and tried to take her life. ( she was 10), it was the first of many times where she considered ending it all. 

 

I felt like a disposable child. I felt like gods biggest mistake when I was born

She did not believe that she was good enough for a college education and way forward.

Wendy worked in the airline industry and moved on to become a special ed teaching assistant. She was always interested in writing and became a copywriter. She had children and vowed to be the best mother she could be. 

However, her past would not go away, and she was living a life with unresolved trauma.

A copy-writing conference in Las Vegas changed it all for her. She met a soul-sister, a woman who became a dear friend and kick-started the healing journey.     

 

Our conversation is about that transformation; it is about releasing the past's fear, anger, and frustration. Moving through her pain and discovering her true I AM.

I was slightly triggered this week when I saw a post about happiness. Some of these things can be made to look so simple, and the reality is they are not.

The question was, is happiness a choice.

The point is that our reaction to something triggers all happiness, which can come from the inside or outside.

Most people do not make that connection because the world is set up to make you believe that it is all external. So it is not as simple as a choice, and it is about becoming conscious of what makes you happy and how you can find that on the inside.     

My point was telling someone that the choice is theirs while they have the weight of the world on their backs is unhelpful, and that is why I felt a little triggered. 

 

The truth behind that question is a journey; many people have never had the support tools or resources to discover that.

 

I have interviewed hundreds of people, and we can all find our route to the question and its answer. In this show, I will offer five tools to demonstrate that happiness comes from the inside and to cultivate more joy in life.

Do you pick your challenges? Are you ready to make a break to get what you want? 

My guest on the show today is one of those people. He tells me he has been lucky and life has treated him well, and it has, but I suspect that is because he was prepared to take the opportunities as they arrived.

Jürgen Strauss was born in Germany as a child; his family emigrated to Australia. In the late 1950s, Australia was a very English culture. As a German-speaking child with a funny name and accent, he experienced a lot of prejudice.

His father was an engineer looking for something practical and went to college and got a degree in chemistry. Staying in education, he used his language skills to find a post-doctoral fellowship at a German university.

It was amazing to be back in his motherland, and the work was challenging and exciting.

After two years, he left to work at the chemical company Agfa. At the time leading manufacturer of chemical film and processing. He was part of the team that developed some unique chemistry for a photographic paper that could develop slide images. It went to market simultaneously as the first digital cameras appeared.

Jurgen could see the writing on the wall. By now, he was married and with a young child. Taking his family's historical lead, I guess they chose to return to Australia.

Our conversation is a beautiful story of progression; we cover values, networking, relationships and being an introvert in business and the power of podcasting.

Is gain without pain even possible? We've all heard those words no pain, no gain. What does not kill you makes you stronger.

 

But are they true? Is it possible to grow without trauma and discomfort?

I was on the road Friday meeting up with the wife for a weekend in the borders returning a lot later than I planned on Sunday. Five hours in the car is a lot of podcasts. 

 

One show that I have been following lately is Hidden Brain with Shankar Vedanta he is an American journalist, writer, and science correspondent

His guest was a researcher Erand  Jayawickreme, he was looking into the ideas behind the idea of post-traumatic growth and the science behind it. His experience of truma was growing up in Sri Lanka during political strife and terrorist attacks by the Tamil Tigers.

It is a good episode and makes some useful conclusions, one which was no surprise is that people who experience trauma tend to be more empathetic to those experiencing a similar fate.

You can find the full program on your podcast app, and I have posted a link to it on the web page for this podcast.  

https://hiddenbrain.org/podcast/what-we-gain-from-pain/

The question for me is still outstanding can we grow without trauma and suffering?

Join me on the short cast where I will explore my thoughts around gain without pain

Where are you in life with the big emotional bricks like shame and guilt? Do you reflect on past events or experience these feelings in current relationships? For most of us, this stuff is part of our makeup; we are unaware of it. Having listened to my guest on the show today, I became conscious of my shame and guilt for past actions and how I have used shame in my family interactions. 

My guest on the show has always been a pioneer. Lois Hollis is in her late 70s, deeply connected to God and her faith, and driven by a calling that started in childhood. Her early years were tough. With physical abuse at home, she received multiple head and neck injuries. One of these occasions led to a near-death experience where she received her calling.  At church, she was preached into guilt and shame to find her sins; the teachers at school punished her for dyslexia.

Her solace was tap dancing, she loved to tap dance, and she tells me it was tap dancing that pulled her through.  It worked because she finished high school, applied to nursing school at the University of Pennsylvania, and received a scholarship.

At college, Lois earned an RN and BSN nursing degree and went on to a job at the Jefferson hospital Philadelphia. Her creative approach to problems was recognised, and She got invited to join a programme that went on to develop the first Kidney Hemodialysis Units in the USA in 1966.

She became a pioneer of the kidney dialysis foundation and stayed in the programme for ten years, leaving it behind to have a family, and blessed with three daughters. 

Then life took a turn. Now in her 40s, she experienced headaches that became migraine that developed into a range of other life-threatening problems. It reached a point where she was told she would not live beyond her 50s.  

Those childhood traumas and physical abuse had a price it was discovered there were broken bones in her neck and back. Our conversation is one of physical, mental, and spiritual recovery and a wonderfully inspiring journey.

 

Today Lois Hollis works with shame and guilt as an independent study. She is bringing new knowledge of these misunderstood conditions. She is a filmmaker, author of 3 books, a speaker and a coach.

I have a special admiration for those with a natural talent for music and performance, I had the acting bug in my 20s, and still, I love singing in groups.

Deborah Johnson's life is about the expression of creativity; that journey began when she was nine.

She was born to a musical family with a sister playing the violin. Deborah was guided to the piano and progressed quickly in her ability to play and sing. 

She was the young little pianist who would do a solo piece at events and fairs. 

Deborah took on her first students when she was 13. After college with an MA, she taught music at all levels, but her passion has always been creation and performance. That has been a story of discipline and dedication to her craft. As she says, “ It is putting in the reps,” she believes in hard work to get a result..

In our conversation, we touch on her process, her fear, and what drives her.

 

Deborah is a solopreneur and is constantly looking for the next creative project. She has been nominated for multiple GRAMMY Awards after more than  20 years in the entertainment industry. She's built numerous self-driven businesses and is an expert on how to constantly reinvent yourself in the gig economy.

Do you Netflicks binge, are you hooked on the news cycle or social media?

I want to explore the balance between consumption and creation on the show today.

It is easy to get hooked into following the news cycle, plugging into the media circus. But I wonder if we are losing our sense of balance in this.

A friend remarked only yesterday that she often reached for the phone as a distraction, and 30 minutes will vanish in moments.  To some extent, we are powerless to resist these distractions. The platforms have designed their systems to hook us in so that we keep viewing the adverts.

During the Lockdowns in the UK, many people found safety in the streaming services, retreating to the sofa and the latest box set. No judgement there; it was a choice, and where did it lead? 

There is no doubt that a bit of downtime is healthy, but the question is how much and how long.

When we get hooked on social media drama or the hero's journey of the latest epic, we are stepping out of our lives and putting our dreams on hold.  That means investing energy in a story or narrative that is not our own.

We could be writing, drawing, playing music or having conversations. I invite you to explore your balance between consumption and creation in this show. 

 

The question we must all consider is what feels better, watching a story unfold or creating and living our own.

Recovery from a financial wipeout is never easy, but there is always the danger of repeating the past patterns.  My guest on the show today is a serial entrepreneur, and has started nine separate companies, she had an amazing journey through these different projects.

Like all of our storytellers on this show, there is much to be discovered in the rebuilding process.


Silja Thor was born in Iceland; after finishing high school, the plan was to go to university and get a job in international development. However, she decided to put uni on hold, take a job as an Air Hostess and travel for a year.

It was 2004 she was 21years old and living in Edinburgh when she started her first business in telecoms, it was very successful. She was young and naive and did not understand VAT, but it all worked out.

By 2006 she had exited the company and returned to Iceland because it was booming; she opened a new business connecting trade services. By 2008  she was employing staff, and everything was going in the right direction.

There was a little bit of sadness with a breakup with a business partner, but she bought him out, and the only way was up.

The Prime minister said, “God bless Iceland.” 


The financial crash in October 2008 took her business, her saving and her home.


Our conversation is a recovery story, but it is about how you recover and rebuild. Silja was in danger of repeating past errors by creating a business that would again consume her.

 

A few years on, now living in the Netherlands and with a new successful business, newly divorced and a single Mum. She noticed that her daughter was always the last one to leave daycare and that she was missing her growing up. That realisation changed her perspective; it changed how she does business and how she runs her life. 


Today Silja Thor is a business mentor, speaker & author who helps clients build successful and profitable businesses without sacrificing personal lives. It is about aligning every part of their business with their zone of genius to set the stage for the growth they want to achieve.

Are you searching for your purpose? Have you tried asking?

We are all searching for meaning and purpose; it may not look like it from your perspective. But searching for a new job or changing career is about the need for what we do to have meaning.

Yes, I appreciate it is about money too, but real happiness is discovered when we align with our values, and the work has a meaning that fits those values.   

My guest on the show had the childhood idea of becoming a nun or a nurse, and she did neither.

She had a successful career becoming a VP of marketing for a Realta organisation. She organised events and did a lot of public speaking and team motivation, and it was all about her passion.

As the internet arrived and the business changed, the work became unsatisfying; she lost her passion, and Robyn was looking for a change. 

Our conversation was a journey of spiritual discovery. Some of my listeners might find this a little woo. 


Woo or not, what is amazing is that life seems to work well for people that have a guided outlook.  Robyn had practical business training and a career, but it made her miserable.

Today Robyn is an author with three books, she is an energy healer and transformational coach, and she consults and speaks at events.
