The other day, one of my podcast listeners sent me this message:
Simon, how long did it take you to get used to cold showers?
You encouraged me to try them.
And what did you experience?
I REALLY had to step out of my comfort zone for this one. I’m addicted to burning hot water. And that’s a really bad habit.
So, what are the benefits? How have you benefited from them?
So far, I find that they wake me up.
I thought this would be a great topic for my podcast, it’s something that I talk about all the time when I discuss my morning routine but I realized that I had never actually done a podcast episode on the power of cold showers.
In this episode called “Do THIS for 3 Minutes A Day to Strengthen Your Mind & Body” I talk about the benefits of cold showers.
There are 7 benefits that I list and I go into detail on this 20 minute episode and if you aren’t already doing them, give...
Limitless. Unstoppable. Absolutely Unchained.
To become so, you don't need to add much, but you do need to let go of anything that is filtering you, holding you back, watering you down.
Forward motion isn't always about stepping on the gas, but letting go of what is weight you down. Become like a Ferrari, become more aerodynamic and slice through the wind.
The processing power of your mind is absolutely incredible, you literally have a super computer between your two ears.
Did you ever see the movie Limitless with Bradley Cooper?
It was about a guy who was 'just getting by' day to day, struggling and not thriving.
He comes across an experimental drug that allows him to unlock the 90% of his mind that he wasn't using.
He becomes smarter, more mentally agile, thinking out of the box, seeing opportunities that he didn't see before.
What would it be like if you could tap into a higher level of your mindset and do the same?
That power inside of your mind is there for you, on...
"There Ain't No Other Way To Be Than High Frequency" - Natalie Spaeth
Natalie Spaeth has had a rollercoaster of a life, but in a short amount of time has made a major transformation in her life and is now a professional fitness and mindset coach. She is also the 2nd interview of my Elite Series episodes where I have the honor of interviewing several members of the Elite Coaching Systems mastermind group that is the most comprehensive mindset programs in the world.
Natalie's life on the outside may look absolutely perfect and pristine now, but in her true authenticity shares with us what it looked like behind the scenes.
She had a good upbringing in a strong and supportive family but found herself overweight, addicted to drugs, pregnant without knowing who the father is, then into an abusive relationship, then many other battles.
At her darkest moment, she made a change and asked for guidance from her higher power to give her the strength to change things around. She made...
Mindset Hackers! I'll be selectively be releasing new "Elite Series" podcast episode with guests from one of the most comprehensive Mindset and Business Mastermind Groups: Elite Coaching Systems where I get to collaborate with some of the top professional mindset coaches in the world.
This is the first of the elite series podcasts where we'll be sharing behind the scenes of the back story of top mindset coaches and their best tips.
My first Elite Series podcast is with Misty Flanagan:
Misty Flanagan is a full-time Entrepreneur, Real Estate Investor, & Business & Mindset Coach with 5+ years of experience in wholesaling, flips, rentals, & new construction. She is extremely passionate about helping other women create a life & business filled with passion, positivity, & purpose.
On Mindset Hackers I talk with Misty on how to cultivate a CEO mindset in both your personal and professional life so that you can embody the person that attracts the life of your dreams.
On this episode of Mindset Hackers, I chat with Former Wall Street Lawyer, now an Executive Coach Hana Dhanji and we talk about the trappings of 'chasing success', the dopamine treadmill, and how to get off.
So many of us high performers try to control outcomes yet we miss out on the signs that the Universe is leaving right in front of us. We are always in a constant state of evolution and therefore what we know or can see at any given point, doesn't always give us the answers we need, but we need to trust that it will come into focus.
Hana has also been on the treadmill of success in her own path and she shares her backstory with us of chasing to become a Wall Street Lawyer and work in some of the biggest cities such as New York and Dubai, but realized that she was out of alignment.
Listen to this short 3 minute guided meditation with affirmations each morning for 30 days, as early as possible when you are just waking up and your mind is in a 'theta state', the in between and lucid state between the dream world and being awake to program your subconscious.
You can also listen to as a primer before you start your work day, while you are stretching or about to work out.
I use these very affirmations to program my subconscious mind and will be bringing you various guided affirmations each week in between my normal podcasts.
This episode of Mindset Hackers contains the following affirmations on abundance:
I have and abundant mindset.
I am grateful for everything I have in my life.
I cherish the abundance of happiness that each day brings.
I openly share the abundance that I recieve.
Life is full of potential to create abundance.
Today I will be prosperous and manifest abundance in my life.
Abundance in this universe is unlimited and I will harness the power to...
Go to school. Work hard. Get a job and get paid 6 figures. Doctor, lawyer, architect. Work for 40-50 years and you are set.
Does that sound familiar?
Marcus Chan was washing dishes, sometimes for up to 15 hours on a Sunday and he knew there had to be more.
He rejected the societal constructs that said that to make money, you've got to work hard in one of those high paying jobs.
As he broke through the 100k barrier, then 150, then 200, he realized he could keep going.
After getting 10 raises in 10 years and bringing in millions of dollars for a large corporation, he decided it was time to move on and become a sales coach for the top B2B and Sales professionals and leaders.
Join me and Marcus and we dissect the mindset and mindset tools & practices of an 8 figure entrepreneur.
How do leaders teach their employees to cultivate a powerful mindset?
Are top sales organizations teaching mindset as part of their onboarding and training?
What mindset practices does Marcus do for...
Wealth Advisor and former college football coach Kevin Adleman talks with me about how our financial system has set most people up to fail by teaching them to have a scarcity mindset because they teach you to scrimp and save, to live within your means until one magic day when you retire, then you need to live even more within those boundaries until you die.
Kevin Adelman discusses the importance of mindset, your subconscious and your personal development as it relates to financial wealth. He talks about Tony Robbins, Jim Rohn, Robert Kiyosaki, Warren Buffet and how they have shaped and influenced his life and career.
Kevin talks about his backstory where he breaks down to the point where he felt so lost, then found a Tony Robbins book that changes everything for him and allowed him to move from a scarcity to an abundance mindset and build a 7 figure business.
This is an absolutely powerful discussion about how Kevin helps teach his clients about scarcity and...
Daylight savings time changed the course of my life.
I know that's a bold statement but it's true, here's what happened:
For my entire life, Fall DST was the day when you get an extra hour to sleep in!
After a few days you start to normalize to the new schedule.
In my days as a club promoter and DJ, it even meant an extra hour of partying, not to mention it often fell on Halloween night (the best clubbing night of the year).
But in 2018 on DST, for just one day out of my life, I decided to keep that hour for my personal development instead of sleeping in.
That extra hour was pure 'me' time, and put even in front of my workouts.
This is how I pay myself first with time.
I've now had 1000+ hours of meditation, reading books, listening to podcasts, journaling and visualization.
My stress level is virtually non-existent, my happiness and joy are through the roof and my income is extremely abundant because of the opportunities that have unfolded.
I only made the switch once and that hour...
On this fresh new episode of Mindset Hackers I have discussed the idea of 'raising your frequency' to bring up the energy level of those you interact with.
Imagine being able to walk into your next interview, teach a class or a coach, do your next sales call or presentation, be on a stage or on a podcast and come in with a transferrable energy that lifts others up and inspires.
Epic sales people know how to influence and inspire by what I call the 'Transfer of Enthusiasm'.
Your energy level is completely transferable and you will be able to affect not only your own state, but the state of others, which can put them in a place where they are ready to take action.
You know those people that you meet who just make you feel good when you are around them, they bring up the level of energy in a room, they know how to impact others, they influence those around them.
You also know the people that are a buzzkill in a room and bring down the energy, and have the frequency of Zombie.
