“Don’t spend this year trying to be the best you. Be YOU and the best will show up.” In this video, Philip gives you a variety of challenging questions to help you reflect on, learn from and as a result, grow from what you experienced in the past year. In addition, Philip also included some questions to ponder as you get ready to enter into 2016 (and beyond). 2015 Questions: Where in my life am I settling? I may well be ‘successful’, but do I feel satisfied? What am I tired of? Am I using my gift or my talent? Am I really as happy as I pretend to be on Facebook? What mask am I still wearing? What conversation do I not want to have? What part of me does the world not see? What one thing do I KNOW I need to do in today (never mind 2016)? Do I love the work I do? 2016 Questions: What do I need to let go of? What do I not want to see? Why am I so afraid of allowing people to really see me? What’s the clarity I don’t want to see? How do I really feel about money? Who am I seeking validation from today? What gift do I need to unleash on the world? What conversation do I NEED to have? What part of me does the world not see? What one thing could I do in 2016 that would make me feel better? If this video caused you to think about this past year & the upcoming one ahead, and think others could benefit from it, I invite you to share it and pass it...

“If you don’t find comfort in your own skin you will never find comfort in the world. Don’t expect the world to accept you for who you are, when you don’t.” If you’re familiar with me and my work, you know I often speak about the importance of overcoming personal obstacles, gaining clarity, and cultivating the confidence to believe in yourself. And while I’ve worked with everyone from housewives to Olympic athletes, TV personalities to entrepreneurs, people who’ve gone bankrupt to billionaires, and everything in between, I’ve uncovered a few universal truths: Most people (unknowingly) have a dysfunctional relationship with money Most people are unable to get in touch with their own deep intuition Most people have a challenge gaining the authentic clarity needed to live a meaningful life Hope you enjoy this interview…   Please feel free to share this interview if you feel so inclined. It’s always appreciated! REMINDER: One Last Talk takes place April 11-12 in Vancouver – So make sure you reserve your ticket soon, as spots are limited, and to be fair they’re sold on a first-come first-serve...

When I was in Peru on my Give & Grow retreat this past October, I had the pleasure (and challenge) of sitting down and exploring the lives and dreams of 3 orphan boys who volunteered to speak on camera. These conversations were unscripted, unedited and unexpected in more ways than one. They were difficult conversations to ignite as these boys were shy, withdrawn and unsure at times. When I delve into their stories I can see why. One boy watched his father kill his mother, and for years wanted to grow up and kill his father. Then there are moments of openness, insight, wisdom and overwhelming joy as one of the boys dreams of growing up and coming back to take over the very orphanage he is in. I know I grew as a result of their stories and maybe you can to. Please be patient with the audio quality and my on the fly questions as I was given about 15 minutes to set up and shoot on the day. Conversation #1     Conversation #2     Conversation #3     If you enjoyed these three conversations with these amazing orphan boys from Peru and feel compelled to share, feel free to do so.   If you’re interested in joining us in India later this year for the next Give & Grow retreat, you can learn more here....

“The ultimate spiritual journey is the one taken into your own soul.” I recently had the privilege of being interviewed by an incredibly insightful 11 year old schoolgirl named Maddy. Her questions were tough and covered a variety of great topics I thought were worth sharing with you: Why I do the work that I do My personal heros My personal goals Significant events that have happened in my life The experiences surrounding the work we do with children in the orphanages How I “check-in” with myself to make sure I’m still on the right track Advice for my children Social entrepreneurship And more Maddy was kind enough to let me share this interview with you. Enjoy…and PLEASE SHARE!...
