Kane Patterson - Episode 135 // PT Prophet Podcast with Hayden Wilson

Recently while watching TV (something rare, but I really love the show "Insight" on SBS), I saw a man by the name of Kane Patterson. He was training people of all ages, body types, and backgrounds.

The show was focusing on those in the community who have made extraordinary changes in their lives.

As you will hear, Kane has certainly overcome many obstacles to come out the other side and is well on track to making a bigger and bigger impact each day.

I know you're going to enjoy this one.

She has prepared the champion mindsets of more than a dozen Olympians (beach volleyball, kayaking, bobsleigh) for the games in Sydney, Athens, Beijing and Vancouver. After being introduced by a friend to Alice's work, I knew I had to get her not only on the podcast, but inside the minds of the people lucky enough to have a ticket to my 12 speaker 2 day event in June.  This is your chance to hear the RIGHT stuff about N.L.P about someone who not only teachers it, but lives and breathes it too.

Alice is truly phenomenal at what she does and I am excited to be bringing this show to you.

You can also find out more about attending the Fitness Business Summit Australia here.

Alice's Full Bio is Below

Between 2003 and 2010 she coached Australia’s top Beach Volleyball teams as their Peak Performance Coach and she has worked with professional tennis players, swimmers, bodybuilders, rugby coaches and golfers helping them take their already outstanding performances to new levels.

Alice is a recognised worldwide as a leader in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and one of its most outstanding trainers, with a strong focus on communication, relationships and the modelling of excellence in all areas of life.

Alice is a classically trained singer and voice teacher. Teaching students of all ages and musical styles to sing showed her that much of what prevents someone from fully applying and developing their natural abilities is based on emotional “hang-ups” and she started to look for ways to help her students get past these issues quickly and with lasting effect. When she discovered NLP she realised she had found the appropriate tools to do just that, and so much more.

Since then Alice has continued to dedicate herself to the study of human behaviour, communication and relationships.

10 Questions to Ask Yourself TODAY – Episode 124 // PT Prophet Podcast with Hayden Wilson

In today's podcast I rock it solo with 10 of the best questions that I have amassed over the past 5 years of personal development and learning to craft them into a simple system to help you feel more love, gratitude and fulfilment in your life. Some of what I say will challenge you and you will need to really think about the answers.

Most of these questions I ask myself on a weekly (and in some cases, daily) basis.  My advice: grab a journal and do the same.

Get a pen and paper ready for this episode and get ready to go deep.


p.s would love if you could leave me a review on the show: you can do that here.

Erin Gruwell – Episode 123 // PT Prophet Podcast with Hayden Wilson

Ladies and Gentleman, I have a very special episode for you today.  My guest is Erin Gruwell.  If you haven't seen the movie The Freedom Writers...STOP. Turn your computer off and go watch it immediately.  Then come straight back and watch this interview. Erin is a brilliant mind who took kids from disadvantaged backgrounds and helped them integrate into the classroom and love learning again.  It shows the struggles each of them goes through and we touch on this in the interview, but most of the kids she was teaching didn't think they would make it past 18...(scary!)

Erin is the founder and head of The Freedom Writers Foundation (see what they're up to here) and one of the most phenomoal teachers in today's world.

I love the movement and what the FWF movement stands for.

We chat about:

  • How the movement originally started
  • the influence Erin's dad had on her
  • What Erin wanted to do when she originally grew up (which all changed when she saw one image)
  • How we both lived fairly sheltered upbringings compared to many of the kids living in certain situations (heavy stuff if you've seen the movie or read the book)
  • How Erin wanted THE naughtiest kids to see if she could change them
  • Erin's definition of leadership
  • The importance of continually finding your voice and education is now evolving
  • What 'slam poetry' is?
  • The danger of generalisations
  • The stuff that didn't make it into the movie
  • How the movie had 27 (yes....twenty seven) re-iterations before it was 'finalised'
  • Expectations of Erin being who she is before she has entered the room.
  • Much, much more.
