You may have heard the name Simone Biles in recent weeks, even if you’re not into the Olympics.
Biles is one of the greatest, most decorated gymnasts of all time and was expected to take home at least three more in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
But her medal achievements are not what have got her headlines. Instead she withdrew herself from competition, and by doing so stood up for her well-being in a sports world that commodifies athletes and values winning at all costs.
Now I’m grateful to have spent over 16 years of my previous career working within these Olympic environments, so I have a unique insight into this topic.
And one of my main messages to you all on this channel is that we can embody the very ordinary qualities that lead to an extraordinary human life and expression.
Yet the example of Simone Biles story goes deeper than sport and its repercussions affect you and I more profoundly than you may realise.
And this is what I want to discuss in todays video.
Learn all about one of the most challenging stages of personal mastery known as “the void”, what it is, the top signs you’re in the void, and what to do when you’re there.
At some point in your transformational process you come to a place that can only be called “the Void”.
If you’re a person who’s always growing you can expect this to happen many times throughout your life.
If you feel like your life is on complete pause, like nothing is moving or materialising for you, you maybe trying to get away from it by pushing and forcing movement to happen.
Although it can feel very uncomfortable at times, when you learn how to work with this phase of your journey, you’ll discover just how crucial the void is in preparing you for your future.
If this sounds like you then this video is going to help you a great deal
The term “shadow” can be intimidating for a lot of people when they first hear it. But there’s nothing to be afraid of when it comes to the shadow and in fact, shadow work is crucial for your spiritual growth.

Spiritual bypassing is one of the biggest problems in personal mastery and spirituality today, causing many people to feel stuck in their awakening process.
Bypassing is such a common phenomenon that we’ve all probably done it without noticing.
Yet spiritual bypassing can cause major issues during your awakening process and prevent you from reaching deeper levels of awareness and living fulfilling lives.
But after watching this video, your days of spiritual bypassing will be over.

How do you manage the problems within your life? Do you catch yourself trying to find a right answer or decision when deep down you know it’s not that simple.
Whether you’re trying to choose work or life, personal growth or accepting who you are or maybe even choose between creating discipline in your life vs remaining free to do what you want.
Well these are are what’s know as polarities, and not everything has a clear either/or answer.
Learning to balance and manage polarities in our life is a key aspect of personal mastery. So in todays video you’re going to learn:

In my own experience of learning from the extraordinary achievements of action sport athletes and being personally stripped bare has revealed a profound truth to me.
When talking about our best health, wellbeing and life, there’s a natural tendency to project towards someone that embodies those qualities already. This highlights the idea that when seeking we are in a place of lack.
Yet the truth is that you don’t need more of anything. It’s in fact the idea that all you need is to reconnect yourself back to your innate raw materials. These raw materials are the very ordinary qualities that underpin extraordinary human achievements, which you can utilise to your advantage in life.
I’m going to share with you the presentation I did for the international Frontiers Next conference. I’ll show you that you already have everything you need to achieve the extraordinary...
Whether you know it or not, you have climbed the ladder of inference many times.
Have you ever found yourself confused at the way someone else has interpreted something you said or did, and put a meaning on it that you never intended?
Or perhaps you have found yourself enraged by someone’s comment or action, and concluded that they must be acting against you for some reason?
You have been climbing the ‘Ladder of Inference’.
We’ve been looking deeper at what personal mastery means by understanding the multidimensional layers of the physical, emotional, spiritual, energetic and mindset levels.
This week we are looking at how we are led astray by our assumptions and interpretations rather than making informed decisions.
So in todays video you’re going to learn:
1. What is The Ladder of Inference?

Personal Mastery is the process of living a life well lived, shedding our limiting beliefs and showing up in our life.
The path is really about your inner work and outer action in a state of constant learning about yourself and the reality in which you exist.
We’ve been looking deeper at what this means by understanding the multidimensional layers of personal mastery from the physical, emotional, spiritual, energetic and mindset levels.
We’ve covered some great experts in those fields and spent time learning some specific tools and techniques.
Today I want help you really apply these tools in a meaningful way. And to help you answer the question “ how do I use them in real life.”
So in todays video you’re going to learn:
Simply put, your mindset determines everything about your life, yet it’s one of the most complex parts of your development.
With so many factors in and out of your control at play, it’s easy to forget that your mindset ultimately comes down to decisions.
Simple choices. How will you react to circumstances that come your way? What role will negativity play in your development? What changes will you make to go from who you are today to who you want to ultimately become?
As we continue this series in understanding the layers of our personal mastery, the next profound teacher featured is Researcher and professor Carol Dweck who says:
"Why waste time looking smart when you could be getting smarter."
Personal Mastery requires a multidimensional approach from the physical, emotional, spiritual, energetic and mindset levels.
