Are you turning into your dad?

Episode #68

Many of us have sworn we would never do things the way our father did…and yet some of those are things we are unconsciously doing. 

The things that we were complaining about our father in the past is what we are living right now without realizing it.

These things have become patterns of ours that keep showing up, but we refuse to acknowledge it. 

It’s time to break the patterns that are holding us back and create new behaviors that we would be proud to have our own children model. 

In this episode, we dive DEEP into the conversation around the patterns we have picked up from our fathers, how that has affected us, how that has affected those around us, and HOW to make the shifts that will free us from these ineffective patterns.

No Man’s Land

Episode #67

The agony you feel when you start comparing yourself with the man you know you could be can be stopped if you just commit to change.

The idea of change is not as scary as we believed it would be but it is worth taking the risk.

Change your ways.

Stop comparing yourself.

And uplevel your standards in order to be the man you are capable of being.

Don’t be in no man’s land, a situation where you are in between where you are and where you want to be.

We go through agonies, we feel insecure, lonely, empty and we end up sabotaging ourselves. Because of anger, we start pushing our loved ones and sacrificing our relationship until we become lonely and empty.

When shame and guilt build-up, it will result in self-isolation and fueling up the cycle.

You can get out of this situation as long as you are willing to recognize that you are in it and are willing to commit to a change.

Raise your standards, think of what standard you want to pass on to your kids and what kind of man you want to be for the people you love.

Value yourself, invest in your self-improvement and happiness and value the people that you love and step forward.

The Absentee Father

Episode #66

Providing for your family doesn’t only mean providing financially but also emotionally. We have this unconscious commitment that if we work longer hours, THEN we will be able to provide well for our family’s future.

We keep on grinding, spending too much time in the office for us to be able to give our family the comforts of life but we don’t realize that we are starting to lose connection with them. Our absence creates a gap with our loved ones and we start to feel empty and discontent.

Being a father is not measured by how much money we make but how much time we spend with our children. Step up, be the man, be the leader in the house, support their dreams, share your knowledge and being a good example to them.

Many of us unconsciously believe that without the grind, we become less of a man. Yet, the truth is we don’t really need to become a millionaire for us to be called a good father or a good provider. Our time and presence are what our family actually needs.

Upleveling your mindset will enable you to find a new sense of happiness and contentment. Reconnect to your family and you will see how colorful life becomes. Be a father that you want your children to become in the future.

The Cocaine Shame

Episode #65

Cocaine is one of the most commonly abused drugs in the world. Its side effects include loss of contact with reality and an intense feeling of happiness. And a lot of men struggle with this addiction.

More than half of the men who joined The Activation program were struggling with an addiction to cocaine. They turned to coke in order to escape the pain that they were feeling or use it as an outlet so they can show up and be the person that they wanted to be.

Some men, even after achieving great successes, take cocaine so they can feel a sense of fulfillment. While some men, regardless if they experience success or failure, will turn to this addiction to experience a certain feeling in their lives that they have not yet figured out how to give themselves.

The question is…how can you get rid of abusing cocaine or any kind of addiction? Why did you try it in the first place? What void are you trying to fill in your life?

Do You Feel Empty?

Episode #64

No matter how much money or business you have…if you are not clear on who you want to be, you will still end up feeling empty.

We become blinded by the norms set by society and end up following somebody else’s guidance on how we should be living our lives instead of following how we personally want to live our own lives.

We end up striving for somebody else’s ideals of what it means to be a man and have success. Until we define our own definition of being a man and success, we will start to feel incomplete and like we are not doing good enough.

We become trapped in this belief that when we have more money we can solve everything and will then be happy. We get to work, keeping ourselves busy making money and end up losing our connection with our loved ones along the way.

In this episode, we dive deep into HOW we can take control of these beliefs and shift them to create a happier and more fulfilling mindset.

Don’t let life pass you by

Episode #63

We are too busy hustling to make money that we forget we are no longer living the life we desire.

Does this sound familiar?

We forget that there are more important things than money like our happiness and relationships.

Most of us grew up believing that money is the most important thing in this world and that it will solve everything. So we get in this habit of hustling without realizing that as we keep on making money, we end up missing out on the things we say are most important to us.

There is this subconscious belief that many men are operating from which is that the more we sacrifice, the more of a man we are.

Does that resonate with you?

Sometimes we sacrifice our own happiness and our connection with the people around us until we realize that we’ve sacrificed too much, including the people that we love.

We fail to experience all the simple things in life and we start to regret that we let these pass by without being able to experience and embrace the moment because we are busy with “other things”.

Where Are You Sabotaging Yourself?

Episode #62

By leveling up in your life, you are exposing yourself to more possibilities that require you to face your fears, step in, and see what life has in store for you. Who you believe yourself to be and what kind of standard you have dictates how you will perform and how you level up your performance.

When you uplevel, you will feel that some things you are currently doing are not aligned anymore with your new level, making it important to realign things. This type of mindset will guide you to where you are going and will help align you with your vision.

One of the ways to uplevel and re-align with your new standards is to identify or uncover your unconscious commitments.

Examine yourself why you are in the situations you are in, what direction you really want to go in and what things need to be realigned based on your standard.

After identifying these unconscious commitments, turn them into conscious commitments to break the pattern. Align yourself every day through meditation. Know your identity and align it to your standards.

Be Pulled By Your Dreams [Revisit]

Episode #61

In this episode Tim & Doug discuss one of the most common questions asked by high achievers;  If I become content in my life will I still be driven?

A lot of people fear what might happen if they achieve the things they really desire, they have a fear that they will no longer have something to aim for and this is a key reason as to why a lot of people, if pushed by fear, hit the self destruct button and damage their lives and business.

Understanding how fear can hold you back is the key to getting past this block. It’s in our nature to think that once we have achieved our goals that we then reach the endpoint, and it’s also natural for us not to want to reach the end of our purpose because what would we do then?

Tim & Doug use first-hand examples to explain how you can 100% still be driven while being content and fulfilled with life. In fact, it can even make you more driven, more productive and things will come to you easily and seamlessly. You will begin to see things differently but it will give you the freedom to enjoy life with flow and ease.

What you will discover in this episode:

    • The main reasons people fear a content life.
    • The difference desire and fear can have on your life.
    • How your fear can push you to self destruct.
    • How to be driven by purpose and not fear.
    • How to live with flow and ease
    • The difference between ‘Get to do’ and ‘Have to do’ mentalities.
    • Understanding ‘hustle mode’ and it’s links to fear.
    • Immediate actionable tasks to lead you on the path to greatness.

Don’t Ruffle Any Feathers [Revisit]

Episode #60

Tim and Doug share real-life examples of when someone in a relationship holds back on who they really are in order to keep the other person happy. This is something that they see over and over again from members of ‘The Activation Process’ and it always leads to a false or failed relationship.

Like in any relationship, if you hold back on how you are really feeling for fear of upsetting your partner, it always gets bottled up and these bottled up emotions will always come out at some point in a much more explosive way than if you tackle the issue there and then.

Doug shares a personal story of when his wife spotted that he was in a habit of dimming his own lights in order to make other people feel better. Upon discovering this trait and working on it, Doug saw the picture change completely.

In the final part of this episode Tim asks the all-important question, How do you let your light shine and be the full you while also keeping your partner happy…

  • The importance of a simple conversation.
  • Doug’s technique of ‘what else is possible’.
  • How to use outside the box thinking.
  • How not ruffling feathers can inspire others.
  • How to be yourself while keeping others happy.
  • Understanding when your ego is talking to you.
