2017 was the hardest year of my life, why? I spent 9 months facing bankruptcy, I got attacked more online than I've ever done to date, I got my passion beaten out of me, I lost my ability to innovate, I realised I have fear and weakness's that I thought I didn't, my health took a massive nose dive, I lost my passion to exercise, and much more. But this podcast episode isn't aimed to sit in the mud and dwell, it's aimed to reflect, reposition, repurpose, and take ACTION in 2018! 

From adversity comes great things, and it's time for my greatness to rise. What about you?

What do you do if your partner isn't into fitness as much as you? How do you know if that relationship is the ONE? Are you someone who bickers with your partner over petty things, why is this, are we poor communicators, or are we not right for one another? Our relationship with our partner is one of the most important relationships we have, and optimising it will lead to more happiness in life, so it was essential I got Susan Winter, New York based TV presenter and relationship expert on to the show to blow the doors off this topic. You're going to love this show, enjoy.

The human brain and human emotion is a powerful area of discussion, a topic we go deep into on this episode. We open the discussion with a debate and look at the concept of Free Will and whether it exists, and then we evolve this around my experience at Tony Robbins's 'Unleash the Power Within' event, which for me, was life changing. How? Why? What did I learn? What is hidden in the brain and the gap between free will and conscious thought? What makes us who we are? Find out in Episode 287. Enjoy.
