S6:E1 Rebecca McPhee on diets, French cheese and why changing our own behaviour is so damn hard

Welcome back to Season 6 of the Momentum Life Project and for the first episode of the new season I have a very special guest who is a great friend of mine and who is the BEST person I know in getting people to change their behaviour. Rebecca McPhee is a dietitcian, nutritionist, health coach and an expert in behaviour change. We first met a number of years ago when we worked together at the same consultancy and have been friends ever since. Bec has worked as both a private practising dietitian, ran a business called the Cultured Nutritionist and has worked in health services in both Australia and the UK and was the chair of the NSW branch of Nutrition Australia I highly recommend you grab a pen and paper for this episode as you will want to take notes! We’re talking about behaviour change - what is it, why it’s so damn hard to do and what tips and tricks you can use to make healthy habits stick. We talk about why dieting is the fastest growing indoor sport in Australia. Why French Cheese is never off the menu. We talk about the biggest roadblocks to modifying behaviour. Why sometimes bad behaviours can be hidden under really positive actions. And we talk about why motivation alone simply isn’t enough. I have seen first hand the results that Bec gets with her approach and I am so excited to be bringing this episode to you None of us are perfect but if we can understand the motivations and the drivers behind our behaviours then we can really start to live our best lives. You can find Bec on Linked in and for more about her project in the ACT you can jump on their Insta page: Capital Chicks Canberra (and hopefully it will be rolled out further afield very soon!)

Hands up - who likes to live a full and meaningful life? We all do right. So now, hands up who wants to live a life of stress and overwhelm and always feel like there’s just too much to do? It’s a really fine line isn’t it between having a lot on on then feeling like you are slipping into overwhelm. The first can leave us energised, and satisfied with a great sense of accomplishment, of kicking goals and of moving forward. The second, foggy, exhausted, snappy and generally not a great joy to be around. In this episode I tackle this very question which came from a gorgeous listener Megan asking how on earth do you have a lot of with feeling overwhelmed. I LOVE this question because what Megan is really asking is all about productivity, one of my absolute favourite topics and an area I totally geek-out on. I cover: What is overwhelm and how to recognise when we’re falling into it Why any kind of stress-reduction is a work in progress And my top 10 tips for getting a lot done but still feeling like you’re not totally drowning I absolutely love getting questions from listeners and if you have any topics burning away that you want exploring let me know - either I can talk about it or find and expert in the area! And if you’re someone who wants to have a lot on but keep those dreaded stress levels in check - take a look at the Momentum Movement membership community where you’ll be a part of a like-minded group all sharing tips, tools and resources to dial back that overwhelm but still live a fulfilled and meaningful life.

S5E11: Mark LeBusque on whether it’s better to fit in or stand out

Are you the type of person who prefers to fly under the radar? Trying to simply stay out of trouble, towing the line and following the rules? Or do you prefer to follow a different path? A path that is not always easy and can often attract criticism but that you’re certain is a better way? On today’s show I chat with Mark LeBusque, he’s commonly called The Human Manager, has written a couple of books about robots and starts each morning completing the statement ‘today I choose to be….’ He’s an internationally sought after speaker, facilitator and coach who challenges the traditional view of work and of workplace culture. In this episode we talk about: Not fitting in and how to have the confidence to do what’s right for you vs trying to please other people We talk about how comparison corrodes confidence We talk about how the traditional system of human performance is based around what you will DO vs how you will BE and why that needs to change We talk about purposeful provocation We talk about how someone once told Mark that he needed to look more stressed as he wasn’t fitting in with the rest of the people in his workplace And of course we talk about Frankie and Otto - the robots which have now become internationally famous. So can you actually ‘be human’ at work and still thrive? For more about Mark and the work that he does check out: WEBSITE: https://marklebusque.com/ LINKED IN: linkedin.com/in/marklebusque If you enjoyed the show, please rate, review and subscribe so others can find out about it and connect with me, Kerry on Instagram: @momentumlifeproject or for ‘behind the scenes’ @kez_dover And if you’re ready to up-level your performance in life and reach those goals, come and join us in the Momentum Movement a membership community designed for maximum forward motion in work, life and play.

S5E10: Murray Guest on how knowing your superpowers can change your life

Discovering my superpowers changed my life. Quite literally. It gave me greater understanding of why I approach certain things in certain ways, why some approaches will simply never work for me, and how to have a much greater appreciation for the differences in all of us and start to celebrate these rather than view them as sources of frustration. When I’m talking about superpowers, I’m talking about knowing my CliftonStrengths. I value this information so much that I became an accredited CliftonStrengths coach and now use it as a foundational block in a LOT of the work that I do. My guest today is a fellow CliftonStrengths coach so you can imagine how much fun I had on this one! In this episode Murray Guest and I talk about … how knowing our strengths profiles really did change our lives about why we like this tool so much above others out there about which strengths we would love to see in our top 5 but that aren’t there And we talk about and how certain events can really shape the future you. As one of Australia’s leading strengths coaches, Murray has helped over 2000 people unlock and apply their strengths to achieve their professional and personal goals.

S5E9: On taking back control and launching a movement

Ask me 10 years ago if I’d be running a business (let alone on my second business) and I’d have looked at you as if you had gone mad. Ask me 2 years ago if I’d have a weekly podcast and I would have I’d have laughed in your face. Ask me 6 months ago if my bubbling dream of creating a membership community to inspire and to support people to take back control and design the life they truly want to be living would be launched by now - I’d have given you all of the reasons why it couldn’t be. BUT… It is here!… The Momentum Movement - the passion project, the true work I have been wanting to bring to the world for SO long, that I thought would still be many, many months if not years off IS OFFICIALLY LIVE AND OPEN FOR YOU. It’s the program that I wish I had when going through so many struggles of stress and overwhelm and burnout and feeling like ‘success’ (that mythical word) was so close but yet so far. Knowing that there was more potential inside of me, but having no clue about how to unlock it and let it all out. It’s for those who want to control the chaos and get back to the calm. It’s for those who want to re-connect with their true selves and it’s for those who want to unlock that next level of potential and start kicking those goals. This episode is dedicated to The Momentum Movement - not just because it’s the best way to talk about all the things involved but also because I am just so damn proud of it. I know, deep in my core that this is the way we can all come together, support each other and lift not only ourselves but everyone around us higher in our lives. Imagine the collective effect if all of us achieved just one more goal in our lives. What the impact would be on the world.

S5E8: Andrew Morello on the 3am gun to your head question

What would your answer be if someone broke into your house at 3am, put a gun to your head and asked you the ‘why’ (as in ’why do you do what you do’) question? Andrew Morello has used his answer to the ‘3am gun to your head question’ for many years now to really shape his life and all of his decisions. Morello is best known for winning the very first Australian Apprentice with Mark Bouris but since then has gone on to be an award-winning entrepreneur, investor and author. He is also a Founding Board Member of Project Gen Z, a social enterprise which runs entrepreneur and development programs for disadvantaged children. In this wide-ranging chat we talk: all things energy, motivation, and mindset about how to assess opportunities so you know exactly what to say yes to we talk about pivotal life moments and how they shape us into who we are today and why Morello returns to the killing fields in Cambodia every single year (and I challenge anyone not to want to go and call their mum after listening to this episode!) A truly enigmatic and inspiring human, you can find out more about ‘all things Morello’ on Insta @andrewmorello Or for some of his other work check out: Project Gen Z: www.projectgenz.com.au Seed Foundation Australia: https://www.seedfoundationaustralia.com.au/ The Entourage: https://www.the-entourage.com/

S5E7: Lauren Beaufils on how to get your mojo back

You know those people who always seem to be at the top of their game, always have everything together and don’t ever seem to be sitting still? Today’s guest is one of those… she’s what I call a true momentum maker. She knows what she wants and she sure as hell goes and makes it happen. Lauren Beaufils is the founder of Attention Marketing, a subscription-based marketing agency that delivers done for you packages for small and medium sized business. She is also the founder of the Illawarra Young Professionals, a networking group on the south coast.

BUT… despite all of this success and all of these achievements, Lauren has suffered down times. She’s suffered the burnout and struggled through lack of motivation. In this episode we cover sooooo many topics from: Mindset, mental health and how to come back from burnout (something we all need to be super mindful about at the moment with everything going on) How her time with the UN helped her to implement grass roots development and initiatives in regional Australia that are still seeing the benefit now How the world will reshape and how we will now view the traditional concept of workplaces post-coronovirus And Lauren’s top productivity hacks on upping the motivation levels and how discovering the Yerkes-Dodson Law around stress and performance changed her life So strap on in and enjoy the interview with this fascinating lady!… oh and did I mention she’s only 27!

S5E6: a Psychotherapists’ insight into what we’re feeling right now

The last few weeks have seen all of us scrambling to deal with the ‘new norm’. Whether faced with losing our job or business, whether trying to work out how on earth to teach children from the dining room table, or being left with feelings of anger or frustration or simply bewilderment at the increasing measures of restriction imposed - no-one has been left unaffected. In trying to work out how best to support people during this time, I approached psychotherapist, strengths coach and trainer, Andrew Sloan. Andrew describes what he does as bringing a sharper focus to experiences that are ready for change. He works with both individuals when our experience feels stuck, messy and incredibly intense, and also does a lot of work in teams; when they might feel directionless, disengaged and filled with tension. He is the master of navigating change, complexity and uncertainty. In his therapeutic sessions, Andrew uses a blend of narrative and somatic therapy and so in this episode, I’ve moved away from the normal style of the podcast and asked him to do a live session with me in the hope that by me talking through some of my feelings and experiences over the last few weeks, I can help you to normalise and understand what is going on. The result is probably my favourite episode I’ve ever recorded. It’s raw, it’s real, it’s totally unscripted and I gave him full permission to go wherever he needed to go. Andrew gives us some amazing insight into what’s going on for us from a brain and body perspective and some real practical and actionable advice as to how we can navigate these times. The way he talks about going through stages of shock safety and restore set off massive lightbulbs for me which you can pretty much hear through the microphone. I loved the way that he blends an explanation of the science and the background with the very real human emotions that we’re all experiencing and that ultimately it’s okay. It’s okay to be wherever we are at right now. It’s okay to be feeling whatever we’re feeling right now. It’s okay to simply be. His explanation around the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system is so eloquent and I think this alone even if you listen to nothing else in this episode will be super helpful for everyone. I could have talked to Andrew for hours and hours and it will be highly evident that we barely scratch the surface of the incredible knowledge and expertise that he has. So I truly hope that you enjoy this episode as much as I did and that it serves the purpose that I so want it to serve which is to give everyone, no matter what situation they are in right now some understanding and some clarity around what is going on for us. To find out more about Andrew and the amazing work that he does you can go to: andrewsloan.com.au or connect with him on: Facebook: andrewsloan.coach Instagram: @Andrew.sloan.coach.therapist Linked In: linkedin.com/in/andrewwilliamsloan/ PLEASE NOTE: this is not designed as counselling or as therapy for you personally and it is not reflective of your particular circumstances. If you are feeling affected by the situation happening currently you should seek professional, individual help and support. There are many services out there including Beyond Blue, Lifeline and many others as well as therapists like Andrew who can help you through.

Andrew Morello has used his answer to the ‘3am gun to your head question’ for many years now to really shape his life and all of his decisions. Morello is best known for winning the very first Australian Apprentice with Mark Bouris but since then has gone on to be an award-winning entrepreneur, investor and author. He is also a Founding Board Member of Project Gen Z, a social enterprise which runs entrepreneur and development programs for disadvantaged children. In this wide-ranging chat we talk: all things energy, motivation, and mindset about how to assess opportunities so you know exactly what to say yes to we talk about pivotal life moments and how they shape us into who we are today and why Morello returns to the killing fields in Cambodia every single year (and I challenge anyone not to want to go and call their mum after listening to this episode!) A truly enigmatic and inspiring human, you can find out more about ‘all things Morello’ on Insta @andrewmorello Or for some of his other work check out: Project Gen Z: www.projectgenz.com.au Seed Foundation Australia: https://www.seedfoundationaustralia.com.au/ The Entourage: https://www.the-entourage.com/

S5E6: a Psychotherapists’ insight into what we’re feeling right now

The last few weeks have seen all of us scrambling to deal with the ‘new norm’. Whether faced with losing our job or business, whether trying to work out how on earth to teach children from the dining room table, or being left with feelings of anger or frustration or simply bewilderment at the increasing measures of restriction imposed - no-one has been left unaffected. In trying to work out how best to support people during this time, I approached psychotherapist, strengths coach and trainer, Andrew Sloan. Andrew describes what he does as bringing a sharper focus to experiences that are ready for change. He works with both individuals when our experience feels stuck, messy and incredibly intense, and also does a lot of work in teams; when they might feel directionless, disengaged and filled with tension. He is the master of navigating change, complexity and uncertainty. In his therapeutic sessions, Andrew uses a blend of narrative and somatic therapy and so in this episode, I’ve moved away from the normal style of the podcast and asked him to do a live session with me in the hope that by me talking through some of my feelings and experiences over the last few weeks, I can help you to normalise and understand what is going on. The result is probably my favourite episode I’ve ever recorded. It’s raw, it’s real, it’s totally unscripted and I gave him full permission to go wherever he needed to go. Andrew gives us some amazing insight into what’s going on for us from a brain and body perspective and some real practical and actionable advice as to how we can navigate these times. The way he talks about going through stages of shock safety and restore set off massive lightbulbs for me which you can pretty much hear through the microphone. I loved the way that he blends an explanation of the science and the background with the very real human emotions that we’re all experiencing and that ultimately it’s okay. It’s okay to be wherever we are at right now. It’s okay to be feeling whatever we’re feeling right now. It’s okay to simply be. His explanation around the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system is so eloquent and I think this alone even if you listen to nothing else in this episode will be super helpful for everyone. I could have talked to Andrew for hours and hours and it will be highly evident that we barely scratch the surface of the incredible knowledge and expertise that he has. So I truly hope that you enjoy this episode as much as I did and that it serves the purpose that I so want it to serve which is to give everyone, no matter what situation they are in right now some understanding and some clarity around what is going on for us.
