Many people often confuse the difference between Passion & Excitement and often assume they are living their passion. Yet often what they do is simply more exciting than what they did before. This can then lead people to settle for what they have currently in their life. On top of that Ego often gets in the way and we allow our Ego to drive our aspirations which often leads to unauthentic pursuits. In this video Philip opens up this conversation so you can continue it at...

Before you dismiss this important question please take the time to watch the video. Its slightly longer than I would normally record, but then again this is a serious topic. I have yet to meet a person who is not settling in an area of their life and its generally driven by fear or a lack of self worth. As I often say……………”we give ourselves what we feel we deserve in life“. And as always I ask you to share this video if you feel this is an important...

Many of the greatest breakthroughs and insights I have gleaned from life happened with the support of a 3rd party who could see, or helped me to see something in my own life. We are often way too close or in some way don’t want to see the truth about something that is simply holding us back, or not serving us in life. In this video I share a simple but powerful story to illustrate the power of seeing your life in a way that supports positive change which in turn yields positive results. If you like the video please share it! If you think its crap, don’t tell anyone...

Many of us move through life and often take the people around us for granted until that is, something happens. In the end of the day it all comes down to relationships in one form or another. Have you ever heard of someone lying on their death bed talking about that great deal they did, or the car they owned? I don’t think so. This is a short, simple and yet powerful reminder to STOP and tell the people around us how we really FEEL about them. PLEASE SHARE IF YOU LIKE...

This is the first time I have ever posted another video on my site! I believe the time has come that the famous, the rich, the successful, the gurus, the olympians, the authors, the speakers, the stars, and the others we have placed on pedestals for years to allow us to see the truth of their lives. As I have said for years its not that we are mislead by what they are saying but rather mislead by what they are not telling us. This leads millions of people to emulate their hero’s but we only get to see or hear from 50% of the hero. Then we are left wondering years down the road 1) why am I not happy? 2) why did my hero let me down? 3) is that actually the life I want? 4) is this my dream or someone else’s? 5) is my life truly authentic? This is not to show they have weaknesses to in some way try and make us feel better, but to allow us to see they are human, just like the rest of us. Thanks Robert De Niro for being real!

Last week I went along to see Oprah Winfrey speak in Vancouver. Apart from being one of very few men in the room it was interesting to see a women who has influenced so many people over the last 25 years on television share her story. I decided to share my insights from her talk and add my own twist to the message she delivered....

Is Lance Armstrong the villain or did we (society) set him up? I believe we have a great opportunity to learn from the downfall of a modern day hero that appeared to ‘have it all’ for us to see that he did not live up the expectations we had on him. This video is less about my personal views on what he did but more about the deeper WHY. Its in here we get closer to the real lesson that the headlines dont care about. This is not a video about Lance Armstrong but rather the whole phenomenon of our fixation with putting people on pedestals in society. Please share if you feel it has any...

This is a keynote I did late last year in Mexico at a conference called Awesomeness Fest. I decided to go with a message that I feel very strongly about. You will see that I engage with a LOT of emotion around this subject and the audience really engaged with the message. Its the kind of presentation that might leave you with more questions than answers. As long as they are better questions then I am happy. Enjoy! and if you do please share it with...

The two most common types of people I meet when it comes to Taking Action or not, are the following: 1. The Procrastinator – The person who thinks they are lazy or put off the next step for some internal mental reason. Personally I think this is BS and comes from a place of pure judgment. It smells of a) I am not good enough or b) I am broken. 2. The Perfectionist – The person who needs to know the outcome before they take that step. They need their ducks in a row but not just any row. The row needs to be perfectly aligned before they make that move. These two types of people will always suffer from a lack of clarity in life. Why? Because they are not in touch with their own internal guidance system, their intuition. In this video I invite you to put aside the need to know and trust a little more. IF YOU LIKE, PLEASE...

“People who only look forward, are blind” – Philip McKernan People who are always moving, always busy and don’t stop, are running from something. Whether that’s something in their past or something in their reality, they think if they keep moving they will stay ahead. Wrong! Despite that fact that there is little logic to this, when you stop and look back you can actually see further. Our stories leave clues which remain uncovered unless we look for them. In this video I try to explain the importance of looking (not lingering) in your past and how it will affect your future. PLEASE SHARE IF YOU...
