Personal Upgrade

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

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:

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.'


Deal with Anxiety

Real Anxiety is... crippling.

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.

What would it be like if you could take anxiety head on and handle it properly? This episode explores the concept, and even if you have minor stress in your life, it can be utilised in these settings too.

Now, what if your childhood was ripped away from you. You wake to your mum being beaten to a pulp right before your eyes? WELCOME back our guests starting this week, beginning with Erik Allen, who actually went through this experience and many more, and managed to come out on top.

On this Episode we will Examine:

Tony Robins and the 6 human needs

Steven Covey and the 7 habits

and the Personal Upgrade Model.

So what about Tony? Well this episode is prerecorded, and if you download it when it comes out chances are I will be with him @ UPW. Will unpack this further next week.

By examining our lives we can be intentional with our time, the secret is in the questions, then the answers will take care of themselves.

BUT if you ask yourself a question like:

What is good about my situation? 

- (which is a great question) - if you are depressed then the answers will vary greatly from the answers you give when you are resourceful.

SO - get those perceptual filters and make it count.

By Dictating what we can and cant do we are both liberated and trapped. Work out what category we are dealing with, is the rule malleable and what the alternative could be.

You should be living an amazing life - are you?

Now let's flip it - what does failure mean to you? Here to help us is Paul:

Social Media




Advertisements, Click bait, Marketing Departments... Welcome to 2019

If you haven't learnt to protect yourself by becoming skeptical, you will fall for anything, yet it often works against you.

In this episode we examine this phenomenon, and how to overcome the part that limits you.

Once you learn to trust yourself, you can then move onto actually liking yourself and from this place you are able to fulfil your potential.

Here is Laura Morrice


A Guard protects something important.

Special things need protection as it equates importance with worth and value. So tell me – are you important? 

Of course you are, now let's protect.


Our scheduled guest backed out last minute guys (sorry) hope you enjoy the episode.

Escape Prison… Using modern psychology.

Decisions dictate our life, be it good or bad.

The double edge of the same knife cuts deep, so intentionality counts, please take the steps outlined in this episode introspectively and discern its value.

Re: the title - Escape Prison… Using modern psychology.

Albeit I am talking about the mental prison we lock ourselves in, our next guest John Henderson is on to discuss how he used psychology to escape his mental prison which lead eventually to him actually leaving the physical prison he was in. 

Our Guest:

John Henderson, a speaker, top 10 Amazon bestselling author, and occasional blogger. He went from high school dropout to college professor. He also rode to work every day on a rope, attached to the bottom of a helicopter for six months, in Hawaii. He has spoken all across the country and has built a multi-million dollar business in the process. You can connect with John at the following places.



Here are your magic perceptual filters, once you install them you should be able to largely adjust the lenses to filter out the negative, when you want to have a good time or perhaps transition to the curiosity filter to master a subject when studying something of interest.

These glasses are fun and adjust the flow of your life, yet in reality its all about the decisions we make so hopefully the change in filters help you make the right decisions where they count…

Speaking of big decisions, like family our next guest Isabel is on to discuss her major choice NOT to have children. Although for myself and countless others children are perhaps the greatest part of life, there are those who have another mission. Here is Isabel Firecracker.

Here is the 3:

1) The Power of your mind

Psychology is all about how we interpret the world, and it's important to unpack the tools we use to receive the data before interpreting.

Understanding this as a two step process is pertinent because then we can understand at the deepest level THAT EXTERNAL EVENTS DON’T AUTOMATICALLY CAUSE THE INTERNAL ONES, it’s the interpretation of it, and this episode will explore this component.

Last episode we built the foundations for dealing with stress, now let's go even deeper!

Once you master this, stress can actually help! It can help you accomplish tasks more efficiently and even boost memory. Then it can be utilised as the vital warning system it was made for, producing the fight-or-flight response for real life emergencies.

Next we move beyond coping and onto thriving and this is where we meet out next guest Trevor Oldman who at 22 years old has built his own online business up and not let stress get in his way.

Stress is the body's way of responding to pressures.

In this episode we set up the foundations for dealing with stress. In Part 2 - next week we will go even deeper and look at the issue from all angles, then with clarity and confidence you can move forward without being hindered by this negative emotion.

While resilience will help you to overcome all things, it must be remembered that you can come back from wherever you are, and our next guest is here to share with us his story on overcoming drug addiction, going through jail time then onto being highly successful.

BUT before we go there I would like to again thanks those who have got a copy of the new ‘Personal Upgrade book’ , and if you liked it, I would really appreciate your review at amazon.

I would also like to encourage those of you who haven’t reached out - to flick me an email. I communicate with many listeners already, but I know for so many others its a one way dialogue, so if you have any questions or comments let me know @

Thanks to those who sent their condolences to the loss of Big Al, he was truely I great guy.

Our Guest is Ben Swicegood

This episode is dedicated to one of my best mates 'Big Al' who died recently, unexpectedly before he even turned 40 years old.

In this show I discuss:

My Friendship

My Deepest Regret

and share the message with you, that was made for him.

We are joined by Dr Sean McDowell, famed author and teacher to help with this journey. A rather personal podcast, next week normal programming will return, in the meantime let me know what you though about this episode.

Sean McDowell (PhD)


When we were children we had many magical abilities that we seem to have lost today. As we grow up we loose both this skill and many childish habits. 

Once we learn what this skill is and how to get it back, suddenly life takes on a new meaning and a myriad of problems are overcome. Some people advise going back to their child state but it brings up drama or childish ways. This focuses on only pulling the good back.

At the end we conclude with a BONUS hypnosis session, to be done only when you can give it your undivided attention.


When you see someone stand up despite being scared it speaks to us at our deepest core. Courage, perhaps one of the greatest traits, like a diamond it is equally rare. In this episode we examine what it takes to be courageous.

This is followed by a special announcement...


If you have heard me talk about psychology, alpha males and being true to your self, at some point you may wonder - "Who is this guy?" +/- "What's his story?"

This episode is in response to those who have asked for some of my background, along with some of the challenges I've faced and how I have overcome them. This is a stand alone episode so there wont be any guests on this week.

Hope you enjoyed it and if you have any questions please visit my website:



Overcome addiction

We often try to distract ourselves from life when it becomes too mundane. When the distraction becomes a greater source of joy than life, addiction sets in.

Albeit addiction is a spectrum, this episode lays the groundwork for both the standard model and another unique mode of dealing with addiction.

Prevention is key, and by having a solid purpose we can avoid the potential for the pitfall. Josh Mclean is here to help us with that aspect.

When you learn how and why others attack, you can then intelligently deal with any situation. If you must fight back, you can do so and remain in control and keep the advantage, or if you wish to deflect then you have the option to do this and guide the outcome as you wish as well.

We will explore this using the top down approach, and our Guest from the 'Wading in Podcast' often uses such an approach in analysing various subjects.

Wading In Podcast





Emotions often control us, unless we take control, this episode explored the fundamentals of controlling one’s emotions (which we will expand on this further in future episodes.) This is a special way to change.

As I mentioned in the very first episode of Personal Upgrade, we live our lives with our loved ones, and if we fail to give this domain the same attention we give to our personal growth, then relationships fail and life gets messy.

Our next expert guest Tyree is on to help those of us who struggle in relationships, and teach how we can make otherwise dead relationships come back to life.

Tyree Wilson

Looking at role models like 'The Rock' gives us a reference point into what is possible, and in this episode we examined this process briefly. The purpose of examining these individuals is to inspire us to achieve more, yet we should always remember the simple things in life.

Things like joy and happiness.

This week we bring on Mike, from make time online to discuss his take on happiness and positivity.

* Regular Programming will resume shortly...

This episode we talk about the Alpha Dude system and how it translates to ladies, to give them the edge when it comes to Personal growth. Mariah then comes on to give her perspective on psychology, females and mindfulness.

Once you see what is transferable between the genders, most aspects are universal and so transferable between the sexes. I would like to thank all the ladies for tuning into the podcast today and urge you to keep listening, as the information in upcoming podcasts are both transferable and enriching, in this unique system you are unlikely to find anywhere else.

Thanks Mariah

Podcast: How do you solve a problem like Mariah?

In this episode we examine how to master your voice, to command respect whilst being charismatic at the same time. This is an important part of the system, while many others fail to give this component the attention that it deserves, (but when you do, it pays massive dividends.)

With this in mind, please pay particular attention to the verbal delivery of our next guest, Dennis Sumlin who is a confidence coach. More importantly though, he has worked extremely hard at his craft, in mastering his voice and delivery, earning him prestige and recognition with the international speaking organisation toastmasters.


In this episode there are some unique techniques and hacks that allow you to make rapid change in the area of self confidence and personal development. 

Remembering this is simply part of the greater system, where we balance these 'Upgrades' with true Authenticity, as such we bring on a special guest.

Actor, Rapper and Author Lester Greene is on to discuss his journey from witnessing a murder in Harlem, to being a rapper, then Actor and Author. Throughout it all he developed his own philosophy that he lives by and is here to teach - Act like you love yourself.

Understanding and Mastering your mind is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself.

This not only means you can upgrade yourself, but appreciate what others are going through. The payoff is the adaptive distancing which is important so we don’t get caught up in others dramas.

Frankie joins us again, to explore deeper his life's purpose and his pivotal experiences using the plant medicine Iowaska.
