How Giving Back Got Me Out Of My Darkness



I reached a turning point in my life when I experienced what it truly felt like to give to those who had little or nothing. In this episode I wanted to share with you a few stories of how giving back has helped me and how you can start to give back to others, especially if you’re feeling down.

Years ago when I was in Las Vegas for a mastermind we were given the task of spending a lot of money in a certain time frame. When we got to our final thirty minutes and we still had a lot of money to spend, I had the idea to give the money away.

My heart was pounding as we got out of our limousine armed with hundred dollar bills  – I remember the shock on people’s faces as I paid for someone’s grocery shopping and the tears of gratitude from a man who needed help; we found him with his car bonnet open so we handed him a $100 bill.

That experience made a real impact on me and it was during that time that I started to learn the art of giving back.

The Art Of Giving 

I learned more about the art of giving when I listened to ‘The Power Of Intention’ by Wayne Dyer. He explained that when you give to somebody you’re not just doing it for yourself or the person you’re giving to, but it’s also about people observing your positive action – everybody benefits. You feel happier, the person you’ve helped feels happier, and the people observing what you’ve done feel happier too.

During some of my darkest moments, I’ve got back to feeling myself by giving to other people.

When I was going through a tough time I decided to give some money away. I went on social media and all kinds of people started to share why they needed $100 – what surprised me was the generosity of other people who came into the conversation wanting to offer things to the people in need.

I decided to gift the money to someone who needed help to move from a low number on a housing register to score higher. A lot of kindness came through one social media conversation and it reminded me why giving was so important.

At that point, I started to give more money and things away. Click here to find out what else I gave away…

As I started to gift more things to people, and as I’ve evolved, I’ve replaced my scarcity mindset with an abundance mindset.

It doesn’t matter how much or how little you have, you can always give to someone.

When I’ve been feeling hopeless, like there wasn’t a way out, the action of giving has brought me back to having a positive mindset and feeling good about myself and other people – if you’re in a bad place right now, I would encourage you to give to someone else too.

Cultivate Kindness

It could be a coffee, it could be a thing, it might just be something you already that you can gift – maybe you have books sat on your shelf, and you want to give those away.

Take an action today that starts you on your path of giving – however you decide to give to others, you can shift the way you’re feeling and light other people up.

The Bald Headed Belief That Cut Off My Confidence #64



Once upon a time, I had a full head of hair that made me feel super confident about myself, but then something happened and that changed how I felt about myself. This is an important lesson for anyone who has limiting stories about themselves.

About 10 years ago during the drinking phase of my life, I was in a nightclub when a guy walked up to me and said “dude, your hair is thinning so much.”

Even though I was drunk, it hurt, and in the weeks after I felt humiliated, inferior, and inadequate. I was already in a dark place when he hurt my feelings – I wasn’t in the financial place I wanted to be, I had a lot going on in relationships and I remember feeling confused about where I wanted to be in my life.

Because I was super sensitive and emotionally weak I created the story that women didn’t like guys without hair and so I didn’t date for many years – I created a neural pathway in my brain and wired negative stories about myself that badly impacted my self-esteem and my confidence.

Delve Deep

When negative events happen to you they can cripple you, and for a business owner, it’s devastating.

When an event happens to you it amplifies something going on deep within you that you need to tackle and resolve.

You think just one is causing an issue for you but it’s never about just about one thing, there are always deeper issues – one issue can trigger you and tip you over the edge; when I started working on myself I discovered my deep lack of confidence, low self-esteem, and unhealed trauma were at the root of my pain.

Change Your Belief Patterns

When you go through a belief shift process you can create monumental changes and shift gears in your business and your life. It’s a powerful process because once you start to learn how to change your beliefs you begin to get your power back.

If you’re in a negative mental spiral and you don’t know how to catch yourself in those moments or you don’t have the tools to lift yourself out, you start to limit yourself in the actions you take.

You create a ‘thing’ in your mind that you tell yourself is real, but it isn’t real, it’s something you created.

Think about this when it comes to your next level potential – If you’re struggling to take action and you can’t move through, it’s due to the belief system you have with yourself right now. If you want to break through a financial barrier or you want to be in a conscious relationship the belief system you currently have in place will determine your situation.

Your belief systems change everything.

Become aware of the things you’re telling yourself throughout the week, especially in the moments when you’re feeling depressed and anxious.

You are in control of what you can do about your situation. When you commit to going deeper than you have gone before, you bring things from your unconscious into your conscious mind, enabling you to do something about it.

Incubate Your Clients So They Hatch As Winners #63



This one is for the coaches and consultants out there who may need to learn ways to get better results with their clients, or maybe you’re someone who knows deep down you need to be incubated. This takes an honest conversation with yourself.

People would approach me, and ask for strategy. I love strategy. I love building brands, taking an idea, scaling it, and growing it. I’ve done it with multiple six-figure and seven-figure businesses and I love helping other people do that, but as I started working with individuals we would always hit a wall.

We would dive into the strategy, but something would cause a block – meaning they were unable to move forward.

As we started having conversations about relationships and other personal issues, we would begin to unravel the real reasons for the block and lack of action.

Mindset Matters

Many years ago when I ran my company Fitpreneurs I made mindset training compulsory and it made such a big difference to people that I recently decided for anyone to work with me on business strategy, they must first go through a mindset program.

You want to get to your best possible place if you want to scale your business. 

When you’re trying to get your business to the next level, you’re going to face a lot of mental challenges and obstacles – this is why emotional intelligence is so important. 

Many people think emotions have nothing to do with the success of a business, but when you need to take action on something in your business yet you’re unable to, you must break through the reason why you cannot take your next step.

My goal is to bring awareness to the reasons why you can’t take action.

If you’re in fear because you’re avoiding a feeling, the process of unraveling your emotions is critical in developing your emotional intelligence.

Release Yourself

When you release the weights that are holding you back, you start to clear out things emotionally and you gain new mental skills. Your new skills help you to prevent blocks from coming up for you in the future – or if blocks do come up, you can see them, be aware of them, and move past them.

I want to help you maximize your investment. I’ve heard so many times that a program didn’t work or someone didn’t get results.

I know of many people who bought training, and they didn’t complete it – not because they didn’t have the desire or they didn’t intend to, but they either didn’t have the drive to complete it, or they reached a block they weren’t able to move past.

Imagine living in a world where you don’t have blocks so you’re able to work through information, take action, and get results!

If you are a coach or a consultant, and you work with people, focus on this idea of maximizing results, tightening systems up, or even making big changes to what you’re doing, because in the long term, you’re going to get happier clients they’re going to get better results.

Turn Your Biggest “Weakness” Into A Strength Now #EP62



Your ‘weakness’ doesn’t have to always hold you back. In fact, it can be empowering, if you start to look at your life from a different perspective. In this episode I want to share with you more about the process of transformation and a cool story from a call that I was on yesterday.

When an entrepreneur, a CEO, or a founder, it’s important you can operate effectively, efficiently, and powerfully – all of these things come when you bring your unconscious into your conscious mind.

It’s important to understand how transformation works so you can use it to move forward to the next level of your life and drive your business forward.

Become Conscious

When you become aware of something and it shifts from being unconscious to conscious it enables you to evolve as a person – your relationships improve, you become a better leader in your business, and you get to your next level financially.

Your self-awareness is key.

Your moment of power comes when you become aware of things in your life that you were unaware of – this is when you experience shifts.

There are things you feel or do that you’re unaware of, and you have things you’re aware of but you choose not to take action on – these can be basic things going on within you that cause you to feel confused and anxious.

Unconscious feelings can lead to depression because your mind doesn’t understand what’s happening within you, so having self-awareness means things move from your unconscious to your conscious allowing your transformation to happen.

Empower Yourself

When you allow your mindset to shift you appreciate that what you perceive as your weaknesses can be your strengths and you can use them to your advantage.

You realize how you can become empowered, not disempowered by the traits you have, and you can gain momentum in all areas of your life. 

If you feel your weakness is caring too much about what people think, you can turn that around and use it as strength. You can use your caring personality, and your empathy, to create amazing conversations and connect with people on a deep level.

This is a great power to have when you’re running your own business.

Your strengths are key to your development and your personal and professional growth. You do yourself and your business a disservice when you think of yourself as having weaknesses instead of strength.

When you suppress who you are it holds you back, it disables you, and you’re unable to use it as a strength in your business.

Your journey in transformation means you’re continuously diving into things because they are brought from your unawareness into your awareness.

When you become self-aware you gain new layers.

You become stronger and you build a more confident version of yourself. You’re able to take more action and become more courageous.

These are some of the traits that enable entrepreneurs and leaders to grow and scale companies without sacrificing their health.

Millionaire Massage Meditation (8 Mins) #EP61



Sometimes we really want a massage to help us feel better, but sometimes we just can’t get around to it. But my little hack is to use meditation to clear the blocked energy most of the time from my next and shoulders. This short meditation today will give you a short 8-minute massage! 🙂

Sometimes you need a massage to help you feel better – you can also use meditation to clear blocked energy and release the tension you’re holding onto in your body.

Imagine you’re face down on a massage table. Close your eyes, and every time you breathe out, allow yourself to drop into a place of inner peace and relaxation.

The knots and tightness you feel are freed by the positive energy that passes down your neck, shoulders, and through your entire body.

Every time you breathe out any tension you’re carrying is released, making the way for loving energy to pass through you.

You feel inner peace, relaxed, and alive.

How To Deal With Entrepreneur Depression Today (World Mental Health Day 2020) EP60



Are you currently experiencing depression as an entrepreneur? How do you become happy when you’re experiencing depression? In today’s episode, I want to bring more attention to the solution as it’s World Mental Health Day 2020

This is for you if you’re in a dark place. If life feels heavy, you think there’s no way out, and you can’t seem to get in a good headspace understand that people who seem to have it all together still have dark days – they just have the ability to quickly get back to feeling themselves.

I’ve had many people come to me in really difficult times.

Entrepreneurs can experience challenges, and COVID is a difficult event for many people, and their businesses – if you don’t have the tools to deal with it or the other things going on in your life and business, it’s going to be tough for you to work through.

The Pressure Is On

If you’re running a business you’re likely to be spending more time in isolation than most people. You have added pressures – you launched a business, you take risks, and you’re the creator of your destiny.

It’s important you take care of your mental strength too.

If things feel the worst they have ever been, know you can pull yourself out of your darkness – when you’re in a bad headspace, your mind spirals into negativity, thinking about everything you don’t have.

What’s Your Perspective?

When your attention is in lack, focusing on things that aren’t working as well as they could be, or when something unexpected happens in your personal life, your body shuts down.

Your nervous system becomes exhausted and you don’t know which way to turn. 

A lot of business owners don’t put themselves first. If you’re in a dark place, you need to prioritize yourself and focus on relaxing your mind and body. 

You also need to celebrate yourself. Taking the leap to create a business takes courage – appreciate how far you’ve come!

Even though I work on myself, I still have days when I’m in a funk. I used to feel down for weeks, but as I’ve evolved I’m able to pick myself up faster.

My mum says ‘Simon, you always come back.’

You can come back to yourself and learn to pick yourself up quickly too. If you are in despair right now, I want to remind you that you have a creative power within you that you can access, but first of all, you must take care of yourself and pivot your attention to your own well being

Slow things down, shift your focus and breakthroughs will come. 

The consistency of our own well being will yield your results.

To discover the principles of getting to your best self again listen to the podcast here.

If you’re in a dark place and you’re currently feeling depressed, sad, and anxious, I need you to read my book The Black Ball – the stories featured in the book highlight the positive impact of what happens when an individual opens up about the things they least want to talk about.

The Mindset That Heals Vs The Mindset That Kills #59



In today’s episode, I cover the important mindset switches that will help you to make a difference in your life.

Crying Vs Suppression Of Emotion

Crying heals. When you cry, you let the tears flow, and release the energy you were holding on to. Create space for other people to cry and never interrupt a natural flow of emotion.

When you suppress your emotions they manifest into anger, rage, and frustration.

Reaching Out Vs Doing It Alone

Reach out for help instead of doing everything on your own. Failing to reach out when you’re struggling or trying to be too independent will hold you back.

Apologizing Vs Being Stubborn

Genuinely saying you’re sorry helps you to heal, but being stubborn, and punishing another person kills your inner spirit.

Taking Time Off Vs Pushing Through

Know when you should distance yourself when you feel cloudiness versus the mindset of needing to push through.

When you continue to push through and you don’t take time off, you can’t re-energize and things start to break down.

Numbing Yourself Vs Going Inward

Doing things you know aren’t healthy for you such as drinking, smoking, and taking drugs creates toxicity in your body so you don’t feel anymore. Instead, have a healing mindset of doing things that are good for you, such as spending time in silence.

Fear Vs The Answering The Call

Fear that something won’t work out despite having the calling to do it instantly shuts you down, stopping you from having an abundance mindset.

When self-sabotage creeps in you stop yourself from taking the next step forward.

High Standards Vs Low Standards

Raise your standards in every area of your life, health, attitude, and the things you do and create.

You keep low standards because it feels safe.

You stay at the same level as the other people around you and continue to play small instead of raising your bar. Allow other people to fall away if they need to.

Entertainment Vs Investment

Instead of spending money on things to entertain or numb yourself, choose to invest in yourself so you can grow and thrive in different areas of your life. This could be as simple as reading a book instead of watching TV.

Lies Vs Truth

A low personal standard is to be speaking or living in lies. Every time you lie, you take yourself further from yourself creating a black ball of energy within you that manifests into more lies.

What is your truth? 

I would rather live in my truth, than play along with something and for it to be detrimental to me.

Change Vs Skepticism

Be open to change and expansion instead of being closed off and skeptical. If you’re skeptical about everything, and not open to anything you continue to have the same habitual behavior over and over.

It’s a loop that holds you back.

Toxic People Vs Healthy People

Surround yourself with people who lift you up. To do that, you need to cultivate the place within yourself that lifts you up so you can lift others too.

Fun Vs Isolation

Do some of the things you did as a kid versus isolation. Don’t lose yourself in the race and the hustle, let out your fun, goofy side!

Faith Vs Scared

Having faith in yourself that you can create and build. You can have the life you desire instead of being scared and withdrawn.

What will it take for you to have faith in yourself?

Worthless Vs Proud

Feeling like you’re worthless and you have nothing to offer is a lie you tell yourself instead of being proud. When you feel proud, you focus on your small achievements allowing them to build into something monumental.

Confidence Vs Procrastination

You can feel threatened by and less than other people, disconnecting you from your confidence; and when you’re not confident you don’t take action, you procrastinate.

Remind yourself when you were at your most confident and feel that energy to raise your confidence again.

Vulnerability Vs Closed Off

It takes courage to be vulnerable and speak your truth. When you’re vulnerable you allow other people to feel your authenticity. Are you going to choose the actions and thoughts that are going to disrespect your soul or choose actions to heal you?

When you heal yourself you’re also able to heal others.

Are You Unconsciously Wiggling Your Way Away From Freedom? #EP57



In today’s episode, I will be discussing the power of being held accountable. The moment I was truly held accountable, my life started to change dramatically. Do you wiggle out of it? If so what’s the cost on your happiness, freedom and momentum?
The biggest shifts I’ve had in all areas of my life financially, emotionally, spiritually, and in my relationships haven’t come from easy, fluffy conversations. My turning points have come from challenging conversations I’ve had with my mentors and coaches – the people who held me accountable by holding my ass to the fire. It was difficult at the time, but I can look back knowing they were right. There’s a deep emotionally and energetically intelligent level to accountability. There’s also the aftermath – when someone holds you accountable you can look back and appreciate it was a pivotal turning point in your life.

You Get Stuck

If like most people you find it hard to ask for help, it’s likely that you’re avoiding feelings you know will come up – you desire a loving correction and you want encouragement, but when you get the opportunity to be held accountable you avoid it. Your mind finds a way for you to wiggle out of the opportunity, so your little problems end up turning into big ones.
Accountability requires commitment and for you to let go of your pride.
Breakthroughs happen when you can admit you have no idea why you’re showing up in a particular way and you trust someone to bring awareness to it. When I’ve been held accountable by my mentors it forced me to up my game. That lead my confidence to grow which meant I was able to make shifts in other parts of my life and create more opportunities.
Good accountability means you’ll get more done in less time.

You Take Action

Milestones and deadlines get you where you need to be. The consequences in the Super High Performance Formula means you have to follow through and take action. Get honest and think about the things that you’re not following through on and the long term impact that’s having on your life. When you avoid being accountable you don’t get the benefit of staying focused and achieving milestones – I used to let things continue and pass by for years. Open yourself up to being accountable with someone that knows where you need to go and how to get you there; you’ll shortcut your success, and the pain you’re feeling. Think about how accountable you are. Do you sidestep things you know you need to take action on even tough you know it will benefit you emotionally and professionally? Are you afraid of confrontation, do you think the things will simply go away and do you need someone to bring attention to your blind spots? Your blind spots pull you down, but when you’re aware of them, you catapult yourself to your next level of happiness.
Without being made to be accountable are you going to get where you want to be? How long will it really take you?
Find the right person to get you where you want to get, and then get them to hold you accountable. Be very conscious to find the type of energy for you, so they hold your ass to the fire, and there will be consequences if you don’t follow through.

How To Deal With People Interrupting You… The Kind Way #EP56



If you watched the presidential debate, you would have experienced a lack of self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and been extremely frustrated with not being able to listen to a healthy discussion. In this episode, I share why it happens and what you can do about it.

Why do people interrupt others during conversations and how can you become aware so you stop doing it?

I can become frustrated during conversations if I can’t hear what’s being said by each individual even though I’ve personally developed when it comes to interrupting other people. I still have the habit of interrupting people during conversation, so I appreciate someone bringing it to my awareness when I’m doing it.

If we’re honest, we can all get better at not interrupting one another.

When it comes to your business, working with your team, and your relationships, you can improve your conversations by not interrupting.

A lot of people question leadership when someone is not able to listen.

Look at why it happens, and what you can do about it, because interrupting others comes from a lack of self-awareness and emotional intelligence.

Take Interest

When you’re having a discussion and interested in hearing what the other person has to say you’re genuinely curious.

A reason you might interrupt a conversation is because you’re hearing what is being said and you want to bring up something important to you. This is done with good intent because you’re excited, you want to participate and interrupt the conversation to get your point across so you can feel good about what is being spoken about.

Raise Awareness

If you get interrupted it’s ok to consciously ask someone not to interrupt you because in most situations, the person isn’t aware of what they are doing.

It’s very important where your energy comes from – if you ask with frustration it’s likely the response you receive will mirror your irritation. 

When someone interrupts you, speak consciously, and calmly ask if they will let you finish. By raising their awareness you’re encouraging it not to happen again, but when someone doesn’t listen to your request and they continue to interrupt you, you can go into silence.

When there isn’t a strong enough consequence from non-interruption it will continue throughout the conversation, so if you’re not being heard the presence of your silence will create the space for the other person to realize there’s no point in you speaking.

When you have self-awareness you hear when people feel frustrated by the interruption.

It’s hard to take people seriously and receive the words spoken when you’re interrupting people – you take them off track from what they want to say and you’re left with unhealthy energy.

In some cases, interruption is an important thing. I consciously interrupt people during coaching calls to break language patterns. If I don’t bring awareness to a pattern, it could stop that person’s development in moving forward.

Understand there are different cases in which interruption is important and there are many cases when you actually shouldn’t interrupt because you also gain respect by listening.

Actively Listen

Being conscious with somebody, really hearing what they say have to say and receiving their words, means you’re actively listening.

When you’re not actively listening, you’re not actively present, the words spoken don’t register and you can’t properly reply or take an active role in the conversation. 

When you actively listen to somebody, you are present with them and they’re going to feel heard – a lot of people don’t feel they are heard.

This is about true connection and true depth of connection.

If you think someone is listening to you, but they’re not being present with you and they’re not actively listening, your words won’t go in so they won’t be received or understood.

You may encounter this a lot in relationships when you get into a place where we’re not connecting with your partner or employees. You feel like you’re talking to them, they’re in the room with you, but they don’t hear what you have to say. 

They don’t take the action that you asked them to because your words didn’t land or register with them, so you need to clarify what you’re expressing to ensure the other person understands.

All of this helps in leadership, working with your team and is a constant area of development for everyone.

It’s easy to be in your head a lot and to become disconnected. That can be incredibly frustrating for a lot of people so patience is the key during all your conversations whether you’re speaking or actively listening.
