Do you ever find yourself thinking 'here I am again' when you have failed at trying to create change in your life? For many people they experience this over and over again which teaches them that they can't trust themselves, that change is not possible. 

In this episode I talk about this idea and introduce a way where you can build trust in your life, so you can believe in yourself in the areas where you want to grow and actually create the change you desire.

Lately I have had three lessons in my life that I feel will help me in being content in how I live my life. On this episode I share these lessons with you. Hopefully these lessons can help you in being content. 

On this episode I sit down with Sean Barnes and Kieran Sutherland to talk about men's mental health. The conversation covers what you should do if your mental health is getting on top of you, how as a friend you can support those around you, and other insights into this important area.

If you worry about your health and aren't addressing the real areas you need to be working on in your life this show is for you. 

First of all I address how protecting yourself from the judgement of others may actually enable you to avoid the real work you need to be doing on yourself.

From there I talk about people who are healthy in their behaviours but they live in doubt and worry about their health. This is actually creating an unhealthy person so it's an area that needs to be worked on. 

Feel free to share the show with your world.

On this show I dig deep into two different topics. First of all I talk about how you should trust yourself when you are consistently using good tools in your life. Then I talk about how accountability can massively influence your choices when you put in at the right time in your thinking process. I think you will enjoy this one.

On this episode I look to the idea of 'living today based on insecure decisions from the past' and what is the cost of this on your life today. More importantly I address how you can move forward from this place. If you feel your past decisions are holding you back make sure you listen to my latest episode.

When we are at our best we are often holding ourselves to high personal standards. There are many things that can let these standards slip, one of them can be the influence of others. On this episode of The Bevan James Eyles Show I share an experience where a friend of mine was let down by a role model and how that had the potential to allow my friend to drop their standards, which would have come at a cost to what is important to keeping them in a good place. I also talk about how to avoid these situations in your life. 

In this episode I have an interview with the authors of 'The Brave Athlete - Calm the f*ck down and rise to the occasion' Simon Marshall and Lesley Paterson.

They share many of the areas that athletes need to develop on the mental side of their game and the tools that help them progress. 

When we have times of struggle in our lives there can be destructive behaviours that come out. These can have a massive cost on our lives, on both a surface and deeper level. For some people these destructive behaviours can keep them in a negative place for the majority of their day to day life. If we know this is what we do we need to make this an area to work on. In this episode I dig deep into this topic and address the idea of 'minimising the damage' of your destructive times.

Most of us have limits in certain areas of our lives. If we could overcome them we could be open to actions that would have a massive impact on our path forward. In todays episode I talk about how we can 'fake it till we make it' in these areas by using tools that build experieneces that in turn build confidence. If you know you limit yourself this is for you.

Often we have areas of our lives that we are trying to improve on, so we develop a plan to improve in these areas. While this is a good idea it seems that there needs to be a deeper level of thinking before we get to the planning stage, we need to understand what is the real problem we need to solve. On this episode I go deep into this topic and share some interesting experiences, that I have had recently, that have taught me a lot about this. 

On the show I mention my new product, My 5k Dream. Go to to download my free Cheat Sheet - The 7 Proven Steps for women between the ages of 35-55 to achieve the amazing goal of running 5k! 

When you think about your mind space, how much time do you feel you waste in your life on areas that aren't that important to you in the big picture? If you had a switch that could shut off 'wasted thinking time' in your life and would allow you to be free to use your mind energy in ways that were empowering for you and your world, how would this be different to your current experience? On this episode of The Bevan James Eyles show I dig deep into this topic and I give some tools that can help you move to a place where you are spending more your mind energy on the right areas for your life.
