Hey Everyone,Welcome to episode 12 of the Two Coach Confidence podcast. Our aim with this podcast is to bring fun and interesting guests from all areas and walks of life to share their knowledge, stories and experiences of this mystical and subjective topic we refer to as confidence.In today's episode we have the pleasure of being joined by Jack Revell. Jack has an 11 year background in the entertainment industry which has included modelling, commercial acting, podcasting, presenting and more recently being an IG Liver (if that's even a thing). Jack has a real sense of confidence whilst at the same time has a very humble and grateful demeanour. We explore lots during this episode, from being in an industry where people are compared to each other everyday in order to get paid, to not getting a job based on the way you look! In this episode, Jack’s journey of modelling since the age of 18 working for some of the most well known brands on the planet!Jack shares his thoughts on knowing what he’s NOT good at, and why this is something worthy of consideration for all of us.Jack shares his challenges and journey with the way his body looks, and how he has been impacted by his thoughts on body image.Jack shares how losing his father at the age of seven caused him to age beyond his years.How NOT being booked for work affected Jack’s confidence, and the peaks and troughs that come from working in an industry where you very literally may not get work because your face doesn't fit.Interestingly Jack shares that he has always been a confident person, however he’s more confident on set than off it. Even though he has no formal training in modelling.We discuss the importance of stripping back what’s not important and doing more of what you actually enjoy.As someone who is expected to spend an amount of time on social media, Jack shares what some may perceive to be a bizarre activity, deleting followers and the reason that sits behind that action.As the conversation comes to an end Jack shares his belief that you almost have to have a certain amount of confidence to open up about confidence, albeit you only need to have a little bit.It’s obvious that Jack has a deep sense of wanting to develop and grow as a human being. Another of the ingredients Kerry and I are collecting for the Secret Sauce of Confidence. The world in which Jack has operated and been a part of appears to have provided numerous opportunities to develop and grow his confidence. However, what’s important to take away is that Jack has stepped into, and taken those opportunities each and every time they have been presented to him.Please SUBSCRIBE, leave a review and share with anyone you feel would value from the show.Episode Links,Modern Wisdom Podcast - https://modernwisdom.libsyn.com/Deepstash - https://deepstash.com/Medium - https://medium.com/Farnam Street - https://fs.blog/For more information on Jack visit,Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/jackwrevell/ Website  - www.jackwrevell.comFor more information about Kerry visit,Website: https://www.kerryhearsey.com   For more information about Adams visit,Website: My Coach For Life | Life beyond limits
Hey Everyone,Welcome to episode 11 of the Two Coach Confidence podcast. Our aim with this podcast is to bring fun and interesting guests from all areas and walks of life to share their knowledge, stories and experiences of this mystical and subjective topic we refer to as confidence.In today's episode we have another first on the show, we welcome back our first set of returning guests. Due to the phenomenal conversation we had with this pair in episode 9 we felt we had to continue the conversation on another episode. We therefore welcome back brothers Mark and Rob Jarram.Just in case you haven't listened to episode 9, here's a recap of who Mark and Rob are. Mark is currently the Head Coach of Loughborough University Men's Basketball, Assistant Coach of Leicester Riders, Assistant Coach of Great Britain U20 Men's Basketball Team, and a Loughborough University Coach Developer.Rob has played an instrumental role as a PE Specialist working on the development of a programme called Sport Education, which led to him being asked to speak at a number of conferences to share his work. During his 10 years at Loughborough College creating a number of high profile elite athlete programmes, Rob was recognised for his outstanding work and contribution to the college and students alike.In this episode, Mark and Rob share how their parents went out of their way to provide as many opportunities as possible, and how looking back this created a certain sense of confidence.How their confidence grew when they realised the standards that had been instilled were good ones, and how meeting the expectations being set gave them confidence.We jump into the idea that females may perceive more threat than males and therefore perceive more fear, and how this can affect confidence.We discuss the idea that if you want to improve confidence stop talking about confidence!What happens if you choose to fail knowing the outcome, and how this can be beneficial to your confidence. And how this links to the fantastic work of Carol Dweck on Growth vs fixed mindset.We start to ask ourselves questions such as, Why would you want to be more confident? What impact would that provide? What are the top 3 things that are hampering your human potential?As we move toward the end of the show we remind ourselves of the wonderful phrase coined by the amazing Brene Brown, “Fucking First Time” and how this relates to confidence.Each and every time we open the doors to discuss this topic something new walks right on in. There’s also a sense of some common themes beginning to materialise. Environment, family, preparation, and action to mention just a few.If you enjoy the podcast, please SUBSCRIBE to our show and leave a review.

Our aim with this podcast is to bring fun and interesting guests from all areas and walks of life to share their knowledge, stories and experiences of this mystical and subjective topic we refer to as confidence.In today's episode we have the pleasure of being joined by Emma Taylor. Born in Nova Scotia Canada, Emma currently works full time as a Project Engineering Specialist for Irving Shipbuilding, and is also a member of the Canadian Women’s National Rugby team. Emma has played rugby for over 10 years, playing at the club, university, provincial and national level across a number of cities and countries. Emma generously, and openly shares her journey and battle with her mental health, and also the impact those challenges have had on her status as a female role model. In this episode, Emma shares with us her journey from giving everything, but not getting where she wanted, and the impact that had on her mental well being.Emma shares how being one of a small number of women working in a male dominated industry has affected her confidence.How Emma has had to battle with herself to go to the gym not because of the training, but because of her lack of confidence to walk into the gym. We open up a conversation about body IMAGE, rather than body CONFIDENCE. And how Emma has managed her relationship with her body, being specifically mindful about the language she chooses to use regarding her body.We talk about the potential relationship between anxiety and confidence, and that Emma believes there is a very clear link between the two things.Emma talks to us about how she has to continually manage her anxiety, and exactly how she does that. Emma shares the reasons as to why her sister inspires her so much, and the special relationship they have which has been an integral part of Emma's life.We spoke about the importance of recognising you have anxiety in order to take control of it, and that anxiety can make you feel you’re not good at things you’re great at.Emma talks about how she felt like she had to be a role model, whilst at the same time feeling like she couldn’t be if she suffered from anxiety.We have a wonderful conversation about how you can be confident even though you may still be managing anxiety. This is a really special episode, Emma is softly spoken, kind and very humble to say the least. As we continue our journey to explore this topic, it never ceases to amaze us how confidence has literally impacted everyone, regardless of your status, experience, profession or background. It plays a part in all our lives, and yet still isn’t something that is being talked about enough, or better yet, something that is being understood in order to enhance and enrich our experience of life.If you enjoy the podcast, please SUBSCRIBE to our show and leave a review.

There is so much wonderful content and dialogue for you to think about in this episode. Kerry and I were literally fizzing with energy for days after. The dynamic and energy of having four coach's all with different experiences, beliefs and understanding was fantastic. We explored a lot, so much so that Kerry and I have invited Mark and Rob back for a part two. As always please Enjoy!Links from the episodeThe Chimp Paradox by Prof Steve Peters - https://amzn.to/31fOg3oThe Confidence Code - https://amzn.to/2YpIU3DA New Earth by Eckhart Toll - https://amzn.to/2FMuUdSFor more information on Mark visit,@CoachJarramFor more information on Rob visit,@robjarram For more information about Kerry's work visit,Website: https://www.kerryhearsey.com   For more information about Adams work visit,Website: My Coach For Life | Life beyond limits
