Personal Upgrade

The different Approach to Self Discovery and Enhanced Abilities using the Alpha Dude System

This technology allows the individual to see clearly where they are, how they got there and more importantly - HOW they can change everything to move towards a new direction.

If you want to stop eating junk food
IF you want to stop being judgmental or critical
If you want more confidence
or Even if you want to fulfill your potential

- then this is the tool that reaches down and creates deep change. 

As always Personal Upgrade promises to Upgrade this beyond, so for any NLP Practitioners, pay attention to the novel aspects of the strategy in todays podcast....

"There are things known and there and things unknown, and in between are the doors" Jim Morrison
Questions drive us and while the answers have utility, they are not the ultimate.  This episode will explore this unusual dichotomy and teach you:
- To excel at any given situation 
- To understand yourself
and of course
- How to Upgrade yourself.
Lets begin!

If you could will yourself to do what you wanted to do, life would be amazing right? Possibly - the fact is many people do this and either fail or are miserable.

This doesn't make sense, until you realize discipline while being an incredible tool is not enough on its own...


If you want to spend a significant portion of your day 'meditating' to become centered:

1) This will consume a significant amount of your valuable 'spare' time


2) Results are NOT guaranteed

What would be better, is a tool you can use in the moment, that could help you to calm down the craziness, become charismatic and just enjoy your life...

The FEAR Epiphany

Once you realize, I mean understand at a deep level that you make up your fears, you are on the way to conquering them.

'But what if it's a dog going to attack me?' or something equally urgent?

This and other questions are answers within.


Defeat your fear and start living.

You are not alone whatever you are going through:

- Perhaps you are in a Rut?

- Maybe you are being attacked in someway by others?

- Or did you make a mess of things?

Four words: YOU ARE NOT ALONE, not only has it been done before but there are documented patterns of such behaviour, learning these will assist you in overcoming. 

Understanding this is just the first step...

We are around one hundred episodes deep so far.


In the process we have undertaken the equivalent of full courses in:


Memory, Hypnosis, Habits, Persuasion, Verbal Self Defence, Parenting, Alpha Systems, Social Dynamics, Emotional Alchemy, Psychological Warfare, Character and Leadership, Resilience, Stress Management, NLP, CBT and so much more...


So what are you going to do now?


A) Enjoy the intellectual buzz?


b) Use all the learnings to change absolutely everything to Beast!

The famous problem, do you want to:


1) Over come challenges and obstacles


2) Attract the good things in your life


- What if you could do both automatically? Listen on...

Life is a series of choices. 

Choose whats right,

Chose what makes you happy,

Choose what is important.

However are you aware of the implications of each choice? Each time you say yes to something you are in effect saying no to many more things. Let's go deeper in this episode...


We are directly influenced by our environment, and impacted by those closest to us, as such we need to make sure we make the right choice when it comes to dealing with difficult people. 

Sometimes its good to cut them out, sometimes however this will hurt you in the long run. 

Let's deal with this dichotomy head on.

Cause and effect in science is straight forward but in terms of human behaviour, it's not.

This is not necessarily a negative though, through understanding and adapting to this, we are able to make the changes to achieve more than you even thought was possible!

From here you can achieve any goal, behaviour or outcome.


We have all heard about gratitude as a tool of personal transformation, however this episode explores the practice at a deeper level leading to amazing results.

Then we have our guest on:

Dane Dormio is a martial artist and mindbody mastery mentor.  Since his first spiritual awakening in 2004 he has dedicated his life to understanding the secrets of flow states and optimal human performance.  

The unique approach to being the most charismatic person in the room.

Learn, enjoy, apply and watch the benefits. SUPER EASY.

Either you have a quick wit or you don't?

Fine - if you don't its ok -Lets develop one by exploring:

- The Underlying Psychology

- The Framework

- Techniques and More

That will transform you from the person who has a delayed response to saying what you need to at the right time. 

From the System, we will examine a small part of your Attitude.

Specifically the 2x R's that allow you to:

- Aggressively Pursue your Goal

and Importantly:

- Overcome difficulties as they arise.

These two aspects are synergistic, and the results are amazing, stay tuned.


In this episode:

From the studying of those who came before us we can then learn so much which will in turn enhance our lives.

- What to Read

- How to Read it

- What the benefits are


- How the process allows you to reflect ton your life and guide your future.

Dreams and Dreaming.

Everyone does it, few of us understand them, until now. 

This episode will examine sleep and dreams, then delve into dreams and how they affect the mind. Creating change in your dreams can create change in the real world.

Tune in and see how!


Jung's introversion and extroversion have both defined and limited people since it's inception. It is incredibly useful as a starting point, but it must not limit you.

Learn about the true (Upgraded) powers of the two positions, then establish how you can achieve balance between the two.

Even if you have learnt about these concepts prior, I hope you enjoy this episode as it introduces unique concepts that help you to Upgrade once and for all.

This episode explores the missed step of cleaning out the closet, THEN adding upgrades, so you can fulfil your potential.

Stop wasting your time with self help, only to find out that you are in the same place. We will look at the final blocks that hold you back so you can make the Upgrade tools work for you.

Skip this and you build a house on a crap foundation...

Have you been told to sell by:

Enhance the positives / Hide the negatives?

Or more advanced:

Sell emotions.

What if there was something that is MUCH greater...

Stay tuned.

We also have our coach on to work through mindset:

SassBoss CEO Sara Weiss


Did you know society is programming you, how you should think, act and respond?

Realising this is the first step, understanding how to break free from the programming is the purpose of this episode, stay tuned and keep an open mind.


Avoiding conflict leads to ultimately more pain. 

YET if facing it was that easy, we would all do it.

So what is the solution?

In this episode we examine Conflict and Fear, how to not only overcome it but thrive and transform at the level of your identity, let's begin...



This episode will cover a whole lot.

First let's understand what social pressure is about, then upgrade your mindset to deal with anything; after which you will communicate to yourself AND others what's happening in your reality. 

Then we Bring on Sameer Sharma to talk about his journey in Martial Arts and Personal Growth.




Your mind is truely incredible. With the power beyond the greatest supercomputer, you can use it to solve OR create OR compound Problems.

What will you do with yours?

Our Coach Dawn Chantel is on to talk about her story and how she changed everything with some simple reprogramming.

How do we retain control of our psychology when physiologically we are out of control?

The Nervous, Endocrine and Multifactorial responses aimed at maintaining homeostasis, often work against us - then people describe maladaptive responses including:

Panic Attacks

Chronic Anxiety 

and Poor Mental Health

This episode will help you to overcome. Then you can utilise it to level up and make your Personal Upgrade.

This is a hard topic for sufferers, feel free to reach out as required... 

When you get that not so gentle reminder, that sick feeling that something is not right, it is the cognitive dissonance that it reminding 'you are off course.'

What you do with it changes everything.

Will you fight for homeostasis, and overcome or compromise yourself.

This episode will guide you to the correct path home.

Who do you follow? More importantly why do you follow them? Final step - how do you follow them?

The answer to this defines the outcome you will get and is the reason why we often get exactly what we don't want.

Don't be a poser

Don't copy others

In this episode we learn how we can learn from others and how iron sharpens iron. With the help of our guest Jessica Barclay and her unique approach.

If you're not growing your dying right? Yet so many of us feel the need to conquer the world before conquering ourselves.

This episode will focus on the fix: 

1) Start Growing 


2) Grow the Right way.

Let's begin.

Our coaches are back! This week we welcome speaker, writer and coach Lori Beard.

Neo : What are you trying to tell me? That I can dodge bullets? ... You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes ... (from the Matrix.)

There is much discussion about red and blue pills, and between pseudo self help, pop culture, viagra, left and right wing politics, becoming 'woke' and waking up it has basically lost its true meaning. 

When you take the red pill, it is the step of pursuing truth. The truth is not always pleasing to hear, so we often gather teachers to please our itching ears instead. If you are ready, let us begin.


In this episode we will unpack the incredible tool that has an extensive evidence base which supports its use.

Used for self change, on others, family and social dynamics. Once you understand what Influence really is, you can then motivate or persuade others in the most ethical and effective manner.

You must have heard or read something about memory and hacks to improve your memory. After seeing someone memorise large lists effortlessly you may try their techniques only to find that it does require more effort than you thought. 

There are two options: be flooded by information on how to master your memory or spend a few minutes listening to the show, then the same time practicing and you will be infinitely better off.


Imagine if you could overcome social anxiety? You don't suffer this affliction? Think again! It's a spectrum and we all experience it at times, which severely limits us in multiple areas of our lives.

Overcoming it it Easy!

The solution is discussed in the podcast or better yet the book:


(Free on Kindle unlimited or .99c if regular)


Once you overcome this you are on the road to success, this is something our guest Chris Hunter knows a lot a bout and is on to talk about his journey.

The Leadership Phalanx



I hope you had an amazing Christmas and wish you all the very best for 2020!


This episode is in response to some of the listeners I interact with about martial arts, it unpacks my martial arts journey, which runs in parallel to my personal development journey.


You may hear people say, “If I can do it – then anyone can…”


In my case I really mean it, coming from the worst athletic background ever, to where I am today


  • Rather than impress you - I want to impress upon you that you really can do it, even if objectively speaking you are pathetic physically, because I was probably worse than you were!

PS: Update - Something I’m not sure I mentioned in my recording was that I finally passed the arduous 2nd Dan Black belt testing in 2019, along with going up a grade in Jujitsu, all while focusing mostly on boxing. Please comment or message me if maybe Martial Arts is part of your 2020 plans and / or what your 2019 achievements were?


This episode will go through my personal philosophy in life, which will be a slight change from the focus on psychology. I hope this is useful as you prepare for the new year.

Once you aligned and live with integrity, life is actually fulfilling, and the struggle starts to fade...

Success = Happy?

Sometimes - yet why are there numerous examples of happy people who aren't successful (e.g. the happy homeless man) vs the successful person who isn't happy (e.g. suicidal celebrities.)

The fact is that these two paths may influence each other - however the strategy for each is unique to itself. 

In this episode we will explore success, happiness and how to pursue them effectively so you can have your cake and eat it too.

Joining us is Janet Mohapi-Bank - Coach, Speaker, Mentor and Amazon Number 1 International Best Selling Author, who will explore how she developed her own 'Habits for Happiness.'

Everything is harder than it should be, logic wont overcome it and any emotional appeals to address it are often negative or even worse - destructive.
