On today’s show, we will be talking about respecting the efforts of other people.
Recently, while in Dubai, I witnessed a something which I found profoundly disturbing. While checking into my hotel, which was a boutique type hotel rather than one of the big chains, I met some of the front office and reception staff. I met the general manager and one of the duty managers. All of whom were absolutely professional but highly engaging. During my stay, they could not have been more helpful and friendly even when there were obvious pressures going on around them.
However, while I was checking in, a couple walked in and from the get go they had an attitude. You know the kind of people. Those who think everyone is way beneath them and will never meet their lofty standards. They arrived in a chauffeur-driven limo and did not let themselves out of the car. The poor driver had to get out to open one door and when he slipped on the smooth surface, he was given a piece of the women’s mind, despite his obvious best efforts.
But worse was to come.
On today’s show, we will be talking about ignoring the little man.
Now I have borrowed this title from my friend Evan Carmichael, but I have not borrowed the content. When I interviewed Evan back in episode 4 of the Prepare for Awesome podcast, Ignoring the Little Man was number 7 on his list of Top 10 Rules For Success. If you haven’t heard that interview, I encourage you to go back there and have a listen using this link.
So what do I mean by ignoring the little man?
No matter what it is you want to do in life, whether personally or in business, you will always have people around you who are negative about you and what you are doing. You know, those people who will say things like, ‘You can’t do that’ Or ‘That market is already over traded and no-one will see you.’ Or ‘Who do you think you are that people will take notice of you?’

On today’s show, we will be talking to international speaker, trainer and consultant Jeremy Spiller.
I had a really great time chatting with Jeremy and to be honest, we could probably have chatted until the next day.
Jeremy shared some great ideas and thought with me and I really believe you will benefit massively from this podcast.
On today’s show, we will be talking about setting the standard you expect from yourself and how that standard will drive who you are and who you ultimately become.
Have you ever wondered what separates high achievers from everyone else? What separates the extra-ordinary from the ordinary?
If you asked 100 people, you are likely to get 100 different answers. And their answers will range anywhere from self-belief and wearing the exact same style of clothing every day to living with a sense of urgency and being lucky. Often when answering the question about what separates ordinary from extra-ordinary, you will hear someone invariably suggest the catch phrase, ‘giving a little extra’ or ‘doing a little extra’ with an emphasis on the word extra.
But there must be more to what separates high-achievers or extra-ordinary achievers from everyone else.
In this episode, I am talking with Clare Stirling of Made With Maturity, a Plymouth based web design and digital marketing agency, and Mark Godfrey, the award-winning wedding and events hotel in Devon.
I am talking with them about business, motivation and the reason why they do what they do. We also talk about an amazing networking group which Clare runs with her husband, Ben called the Cream Tea Club and Deer Parks involvement with the group’s November edition.
The Cream Tea Club is based around the Plymouth area but does 1 out of area event a year. And this year it’s at Deer Park.
This show is not in anyway financially benefiting from this mention or discussion, but I have stayed at the hotel and it is amazing. It’s a really fantastic venue, they have great food, stunning gardens and really all you need for a wedding and events venue.
In this episode, we talk about your mindset, personal change, where it all begins and what the science behind your mindset is.
Mindset is a mental attitude which determines how you interpret and respond to situations you encounter. It is the preconceived ideas you have for the potential outcome in any given situation or set of actions. So, for example, if the government increase the tax rate on business, some people will see it as a disaster, while other people will see it as an opportunity to operate leaner and meaner. These differing viewpoints are due to conditioning and preconceptions, and that is due to a mindset.
Another definition of mindset is a lens or frame through which the mind orientates us toward a particular set of circumstance, associations and expectations.
