I tend to talk about 8 disastrous mistakes people make in life (and the shocking consequences of them). Due to time constraints though (this is a 15 minute podcast after all), I’m sharing 3 I feel very strongly about at the minute.
I hope this episode ROCKS you to make a shift if you know you are making one, two or three of these mistakes. Again, the consequences of mistakes made day after day after day are mind-blowingly shocking.
If you’re enjoying this content and you have not watched the Kill Mediocrity series (which is available for free at the time of this recording), then I urge you to register here to be a part of it.
If you already KNOW that you want to work with me and transform each of the 8 areas of your life from Mediocre to Magnificent, then I invite you to join the Exceptional Life Blueprint.
This is my signature 12-week transformational training program which I am grateful to say has had a profound shift on hundreds of men and women just like you.

OK, now to the three mistakes
Mistake #1 – Failure to Exercise Regularly
Most people put Dementia as the LEAST preferred way to die.
Ralph Martins Foundation Chair in Aging and Alzheimer’s Disease at Edith Cowan University has completed dozens of studies over decades in the field and the outcomes are easy to summarise
- The people who exercise regularly have the LEAST incidence of dementia.
Keep in mind that dementia takes between 20 and 50 years to get to the point of DIAGNOSIS! So you could be 30 now and already developing DEMENTIA through your LIFESTYLE!
We know that people with High Blood Pressure & who are overweight in MIDDLE AGE are SIX times more likely to develop dementia.
Enough said, surely. Visualise your life with dementia, and the impact it has on those around you, and I hope that visual is enough to get you to move your body!
Mistake #2 – Poor Family Relationships
Listen to the podcast to find out the disastrous consequences of poor family relationships. One of the biggest is the undignified end to life that so many of us are scared of, and sadly end up experiencing.
Mistake #3 – Poor Financial Management
You’ve seen the stories on the news of terrible conditions in nursing homes. Well, brutally and simply said, if the residents in there had more money in their bank accounts, they would not be at the mercy of such conditions.
Let their situations be a LESSON to you to manage your money wisely NOW so that in the decades to come you are not in the news because of unchecked catheters, underfeeding, poor wound management and more.
Morbid, but true!
Action Step – Remove any mistakes!
So do you have any of these three in your life? If so, I urge you to Kill Mediocrity in 2017 in these three areas of life. If you do, you will be thanking your lucky stars EVERY YEAR for the rest of your life that you made a shift. If not, again you run the major risk of experiencing the disastrous consequences outlined in this episode.
