“In the absence of clarity, take action!” ~ Philip McKernan As a little test, we decided to ask our clan to send in your questions about anything at all that you wanted me to answer, and we’ve been delighted by the response. Lots of insightful and rough questions have poured in – so many so that we’ve had to break my answers up into a series of videos. This is the third edition of the ‘Ask Philip’ series, where I tackled your questions about Self Confidence, Living in Your Head, Passion vs. Purpose, Attracting Meaningful Relationships and Social Anxiety.

“In the absence of clarity, take action!” ~ Philip McKernan In my work, I like to flip things on their head from time to time. So in the spirit of “mixing things up” again, it was finally time for you to put me in the hot seat to ask me anything you’d like. You asked, and I answered. In this second edition of the ‘Ask Philip’ series, I tackled your questions about Achieving Goals (while keeping others happy), the Fear of Failure, Intuition vs. Intellect, and ‘Manifesting and Attracting’ what you want.

“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!...

Recently I was given the honor to speak in front of a room full of entrepreneurs in Toronto at an event called ‘Mastermind Talks’. This even was put on by a fantastic soul named Jayson Gaignard, whom I’ve come to really respect the more time I have spent getting to know him. Jayson gave me the opportunity to speak to his community for an entire hour (the first time he’s ever let anyone do so one of his stages) about the subject of ‘Authentic Goal Setting’. He was nice enough to record the entire talk so that I could share it with our clan. Enjoy… To find out more about Jayson Gaignard and his Mastermind Talks, please visit his...

“Your ability to get in touch with, listen and trust your intuition will determine the authenticity of your life.” My work consists of mentoring others across a variety of aspects in their lives: relationships, work and self. And I do this in a handful of ways, from group business coaching programs, to experiential retreats, to intimate live events, to private 1-on-1 mentorship discussions. On rare occasions, I have held private one-off calls with people I meet a long the way. This is one I did with Jason Connell (founder of Ignited Leadership) where we focused on the subject of intuition – and for some reason (intuition?) we decided to record it. And when it was all said and done, we were both extremely glad we did, as this conversation uncovered some unexpected thoughts and ideas around intuition that I believe anyone wanting to learn more can value from listening in. In this discussion we explored (amongst other things…): Why after achieving a goal, it often feels like an empty accomplishment (hint, it’s not about the actual accomplishment) Why positive thinking, in isolation of emotional feeling, can be detrimental Why what YOU feel is the only truth that matters (and how to change it for the better) What the inhibitors of intuition actually are, and how to break through them How to uncover, cultivate and nurture your own personal intuitive clarity Why it’s important to lean into and get to know your fears, rather than trying to hide from them Jason was very vulnerable and authentic on this call, and I respect him greatly for his courage to do so … and I trust that after listening in, you will too. Enjoy… If you liked listening in to this private conversation and feel like someone else might too, by all means please feel free to share it and pass it...

Happiness is ultimately nothing more than a byproduct of other things. And what’s more is that happiness is NOT available to us 24-7, 365 days a year. However, you CAN achieve happiness on a more consistent basis. In this video Philip discusses: How to elevate your overall happiness How to discover the inhibitors that get in the way of happiness The illusion of trying to make others happy Why it’s NOT your job to make your spouse happy (and why) Enjoy… If you agree with the faults in the whole “happy wife, happy life” saying, then please feel free to spread the message and share this video with your friends and family....

Time for You, Parents?

Time for You, Parents?


Posted By on Nov 28, 2014

While I’m far from an expert on parenting, I’m always evolving and open to feedback… and Hopefully you are as well. In this video I discuss the importance of parents giving themselves permission to take time for themselves over and above what they do for their children. Children who grow up an in an environment where parents put a value on their own skin, are more likely to do the same in their lives, resulting in a strong confidence that most people (children and parents alike) lack. Where as the effects on children who grow up exposed to parents who don’t make space in their lives and hide behind their kids (or worse, resent them) can have dramatically different results on the child’s future self-worth. If after watching this video you find value in this message and think any other parents might too, feel free to share it along....
