This week I got interviewed on a podcast called ‘That inner voice’.
It was one of my favorites. Although, I think I say that about all of them – I love meeting new people and talking about interesting topics with them!
We discussed a wide variety; from sex and masturbation to drug addict parents, fighting and loving food and exercise!
To hear more details you’ll have to listen to it!
Here is the link to ‘That Inner Voice’… My episode hasn’t been released yet, I’ll update the link when it has!
At the end of the podcast, Jen asked me 3 questions, so I’ve decided to answer them here for you too 🙂
1. What does your Inner Voice say?
‘I am Fighting Fit’.
The voice inside my head used to scream at me that I was not fit enough. No matter how fit I got, it was always my greatest fear was that it was not enough!
Luckily, I learned to begin to reframe this – by my title fight I had begun to believe that I was fit enough, I had done the training and I was ready to become a champion. Opposed to operating from a place of panic, I had managed to switch to confidence. And with that external confidence (it showed in my body language!) I found an internal calm. A focus.
The negative voice had been silenced and in its place was a true belief in myself and my ability.
And with that title belt, with becoming a champion, came the belief that I could also become successfully self-employed too!
And, with the power of positive affirmations, you too can become Fighting Fit, with me… let’s be Fighting Fit Together!
2. What is your vision?
‘Speaking on stages globally’
I explained how this is my ‘biggest goal’ and that things are already falling into place for it! Since I began to fully believe that I will get there, and practice regular visualizations o it (I often see it when I’m being hypnotized too!)
I have been booked to speak in London in October 2021 (Or May 2022, Covid/lockdown restriction dependant) and I am aiming to speak at ‘Hypno Thoughts Live’ in Vegas in 2022, too!
Big goals… but you don’t become a champion without setting your sights high… then putting the work in!
This big goal is driving me daily, to set the smaller goals and establish effective processes, such as being on this podcast.
3. What’s the greatest piece of advice you’ve been given?
I actually took this as an opportunity to tell a story, one of my favorites… and then work out what the moral of that story is!
When I was fighting and losing, I had one particularly tough day, in the gym.
And one of my coaches, and best friend’s, Daniel Barfoot, pulled me aside and gave me a few words of encouragement. I was feeling deflated and wondering what the point of continuing was… and maybe I just wasn’t cut out to be a fighter… maybe I’d never be ‘good enough’.
But I clearly remember him telling me that once I get through this part, the tough part, which I will overcome, that I will be able to look back, with a smile upon my face, and reflect upon the struggle. And that it will forever be part of my story… and that I may not be a natural fighter, but I am a natural coach. Fighting will forever live on in my memories and will forever make me a better coach.
At this time he did not know I’d start my own business, either. The lessons learned from fighting, that resilience when you feel like you’re going to just keep losing… that will live on within me forever. And I don’t have to worry about being punched in the face, as I did with fighting!
So, the moral of that story, and the best piece of advice I’ve been given, is to not give up when things get tough. To persevere, through the struggle; it won’t always be easy, but it will be worth it!
