The secret to long term success

On today’s episode I’m joined by special guest Mike Mannix, owner of Kikoh Reiki and Iconic Underground Magazine.

I connected with Mike during The Girl Against Fluoride campaign and always have a great affinity with him. Mike is a diverse and multi passionate guy who always inspires me to think long term when it comes to setting my goals.

I wanted to share his unique perspective and gems of insight with you in today’s episode.

Mike runs a thriving Traditional Japanese Reiki Practice is Dublin Wellness Centre on South William Street. It was there I had a few retreats from the busy campaign and recharged with Mike’s guidance.

The other passion of Mike is electronic and house music and he owns the Iconic Underground magazine which is published bi-monthly.

The self empowerment tool of Kikoh Reiki has allowed Mike to stand on his own two feet and carve out his path on his own terms.

He shares that we’re all born with the latent ability to move and rebalance your energy. It’s as natural as walking and talking but the conditioning around an outside authority governing your health can block you from accessing this natural gift.

I asked Mike what was the biggest resistance to taking this journey of self empowerment and he said “it’s working through your shadow and conditioning”. He also believes that all the bells and whistles that are typically associated with energy healing can turn people off. This is why Mike refuses to morph into the stereotype of a Reiki teacher and instead embodies his diverse individuality. To me this is refreshing and inclusive for those who enjoy multiple passions that aren’t related to spirituality directly.

Mike’s secret to long term success is the 3 Ps.

Patience, perseverance and persistence. These need to be applied to any goal worth pursuing.

The biggest goal is to try to overcome yourself as it takes a great deal of strength to take a journey of self discovery. Our society isn’t set up to support this yet but luckily this is changing now as parents like Mike are influencing the next generation. Also meditation is now being taught in schools across the UK and in some Irish schools.

Mike’s son Leon who’s 3 years old is being brought up with this understanding of rebalancing energy and I’m sure during his upbringing will learn many valuable lessons on how to be self sovereign. Which means relying on your own self to direct your life.

Mike’s key message from this conversation is to stick to your guns, distance yourself from the naysayers. Success is a long fought road. The attitude of gratitude is essential. Gratitude brings more of what you focus on. Be grateful to pursue your goal with the intention that it gets a bit easier with time.

Now I’d love to hear from you, what is the number one insight you’re taking away from this episode. Leave your comment below!

In today’s episode I catch up with Richie who’s on tour in Europe. So far Richie’s played gigs in over 5 countries since early April, including Switzerland, France, Germany, Netherlands and Belgium.

Sometimes Richie wonders will anything come of it but he reminds himself it’s about reaching one person at a time.

Richie’s been selected to feature at a Singer Songwriter Festival in Copenhagen on 31st August, this and many more opportunities have come in since Richie set out on tour early April.

The key lesson is that the more you focus on the process, the more you’ll see it unfold. When you fixate on the outcome you miss out on being present to the process.

This lesson applies to all the things you’re trying to achieve and create in your life.

Be prepared to build from the ground up. Start small and keep growing.

Richie’s inspired by musician Tommy Emmanuel who carved out his own music career into a thriving lifelong career. Also Gary V the CEO of Vayner Media is a great model of following your long term game.

You have to be willing to go through a period of discomfort and uncertainty as you establish you’ve goals in your life. If you don’t get out of your comfort zone you’ll never push yourself beyond your current reality.

Moving From Fear to Trust Book update: After a great meeting with my book Midwife and Mentor Dr Mary Helen Hensley my goal is to have my 60,000 word manuscript completed by end of July.

I’ve so far written 7,000 words so only another 53,000 words to go. I’ve broken this down to approx 611 words per day over the next 90 days. Somedays I write more when I’ve more energy and space and other days I write what I can. The key is to stay with the momentum of getting it done.

With this book I have no idea of the outcome so instead of draining my energy projecting out into the future, I’m drawing all of focus into the present time on actually writing the book to the best level I can. I’m confident that when I’m at the stage of publishing the book I’ll be guided to take the right action I need to bring this book out into the world and to the people who most need to read it.

Our key message from this podcast episode is to start where you are and enjoy the process. The outcome will take care of itself from you fully showing up to the process.

Now we’d love to hear from you, what area of your life do you need to shift your focus from the outcome to the process? Let us know in the comments below!
