In this week's episode, I explore a key aspect of your role on this planet while you are alive. You are meant to do what you see needs to be done and the truth is that nobody can precisely see what you can see. Your unique and 'weird' background enables you to see what others cannot see. What is it that you are meant to be doing? What contribution are you meant to be making? What problem are you meant to be solving that you can precisely see? When you choose this path, the benefits for you are extensive and enormous.  Find out what those benefits are and how you can discover what it is that you are meant to be doing.The Prayer of St. Francis that Charles referred to can be found via this link: https://www.catholic.org.au/prayers/st-francis-prayerClick this link to register for Charles's next Masterclass (dates will be updated regularly): https://www.passsionquest.com/kovess-...Visit either one or both of my websites.For individual work and to start your Self-Awareness and Passion Quest http://charleskovess.com/For corporate and public programs http://www.kovess.com/Register to receive my regular Passion Points To Ponder via either website.Visit my YouTube page for the video-podcast https://www.youtube.com/user/charlesb...For direct emails and book orders, send me an email: charles@kovess.comTo have a telephone conversation about your Self Awareness and Passion Quest, call me on 0412 317 404.
In this week's episode, on Father's Day, I predict some startling things that are going to happen. I predict things just like I had to do when I first became a father of five children, one at a time, of course, except when I had twins. There are consequences of decisions that we make as fathers, and there are consequences for decisions being made by governments, by large corporations, by technocrats and by bureaucrats. I predict some of those consequences. These predictions hopefully will make you think about the consequences of what might happen in the future and therefore, increase your ability to cope, indeed thrive, in the future to come.  Click this link to register for Charles's next Masterclass (dates will be updated regularly): https://www.passsionquest.com/kovess-...Visit either one or both of my websites.For individual work and to start your Self-Awareness and Passion Quest http://charleskovess.com/For corporate and public programs http://www.kovess.com/Register to receive my regular Passion Points To Ponder via either website.Visit my YouTube page for the video-podcast https://www.youtube.com/user/charlesb...For direct emails and book orders, send me an email: charles@kovess.comTo have a telephone conversation about your Self Awareness and Passion Quest, call me on 0412 317 404.
In this week's episode, I explore Innovation. You were born Innovative. Have a look at any two-year-old kid. You can see the amazing innovation that lies within each one of us. It's time to access that innovation. Your ability to access your Innovation and act on it is going to be a key to your future. We live in incredibly challenging times with this virus stuff.  Your ability to change how you think, act and behave is going to be the key to your future. You need to be able to take risks that are inherent as part of being innovative. This week's Episode is designed to inspire you to take risks, to be a kid, to think like a kid. As Christ said, as written in the Bible, 'the kingdom of God belongs to little children'. So, it's time to be a little child, regardless of how old you think you might be.Click this link to register for Charles's next Masterclass (dates will be updated regularly): https://www.passsionquest.com/kovess-...Visit either one or both of my websites.For individual work and to start your Self-Awareness and Passion Quest http://charleskovess.com/For corporate and public programs http://www.kovess.com/Register to receive my regular Passion Points To Ponder via either website.Visit my YouTube page for the video-podcast https://www.youtube.com/user/charlesb...For direct emails and book orders, send me an email: charles@kovess.comTo have a telephone conversation about your Self Awareness and Passion Quest, call me on 0412 317 404.
In this week's episode, I'm going to explore two key questions:  Will you believe it when you see it? Or, will you see it when you believe it? Most people say the former. I put to you that the latter is the more important question. This is a crucial idea that governs your experience of your life and your experience of what's going on in your town, in your city, in your country, on your planet. I explore the relevance of Cognitive Dissonance, and the need to be aware of your conscious and unconscious beliefs. This show can change your whole experience of your life.Click this link to register for Charles's next Masterclass (dates will be updated regularly): https://www.passsionquest.com/kovess-...Visit either one or both of my websites.For individual work and to start your Self-Awareness and Passion Quest http://charleskovess.com/For corporate and public programs http://www.kovess.com/Register to receive my regular Passion Points To Ponder via either website.Visit my YouTube page for the video-podcast https://www.youtube.com/user/charlesb...For direct emails and book orders, send me an email: charles@kovess.comTo have a telephone conversation about your Self Awareness and Passion Quest, call me on 0412 317 404.
In this week's episode, I invite you to explore your beliefs about your ageing. About you getting old and about others getting old. How old will you be when you die of old age? If you do have an accident, that's a different matter. But what does 'old age' mean to you? And when is it going to "do you in", as Eliza Dolittle famously said in My Fair Lady? Your beliefs and actions around 'old age' are crucial to your longevity. I aim to live and be healthy until I'm at least 120 years of age.I'll tell you how I'm going to do it.Click this link to register for Charles's next Masterclass (dates will be updated regularly): https://www.passsionquest.com/kovess-...Visit either one or both of my websites.For individual work and to start your Self-Awareness and Passion Quest http://charleskovess.com/For corporate and public programs http://www.kovess.com/Register to receive my regular Passion Points To Ponder via either website.Visit my YouTube page for the video-podcast https://www.youtube.com/user/charlesb...For direct emails and book orders, send me an email: charles@kovess.comTo have a telephone conversation about your Self Awareness and Passion Quest, call me on 0412 317 404.
In this week's episode, I explore the crucial skill of confidence, both in yourself and confidence in the future in tough times. And, we are certainly in tough times. Although, I reckon at least 60% of people in Australia are NOT struggling: they are the public servants, politicians, and big businesses whose lives are NOT being destroyed through lockdowns!  Loss of self-confidence disempowers you and kills your hope for the future. That loss of hope leads to hopelessness. That is one of the worst spaces to be in. It's a lousy way to live.Today, I share seven skills to help you preserve and build self-confidence in you and those around you. If you have high self-confidence, your confidence in the future, regardless of how tough it is, will be high.Click this link to register for Charles's next Masterclass (dates will be updated regularly): https://www.passsionquest.com/kovess-...Visit either one or both of my websites.For individual work and to start your Self-Awareness and Passion Quest http://charleskovess.com/For corporate and public programs http://www.kovess.com/Register to receive my regular Passion Points To Ponder via either website.Visit my YouTube page for the video-podcast https://www.youtube.com/user/charlesb...For direct emails and book orders, send me an email: charles@kovess.comTo have a telephone conversation about your Self Awareness and Passion Quest, call me on 0412 317 404.
In this Episode, I ask you whether it's time for your Civil Disobedience.If your government is acting improperly or unlawfully or unethically or immorally, do you just accept it? Or, are you going to push back? Do you know that YOU are responsible for the future of the country in which you live.I'm Australian. I am personally responsible for the future of this country and I'm personally responsible for the future of the planet. If you just accept whatever government says, and act like a doormat, don't be surprised that your government wipes its feet on you. If the public acts like a doormat, don't be surprised that the police wipe their feet on the members of the public. Mahatma Gandhi is a wonderful, inspirational example for your consideration. He practised and urged, successfully, millions of Indians to practice civil disobedience in the fight for India's independence.Click this link to register for Charles's next Masterclass (dates will be updated regularly): https://www.passsionquest.com/kovess-...Visit either one or both of my websites.For individual work and to start your Self-Awareness and Passion Quest http://charleskovess.com/For corporate and public programs http://www.kovess.com/Register to receive my regular Passion Points To Ponder via either website.Visit my YouTube page for the video-podcast https://www.youtube.com/user/charlesb...For direct emails and book orders, send me an email: charles@kovess.comTo have a telephone conversation about your Self Awareness and Passion Quest, call me on 0412 317 404.
In this Episode, I explore ideas on how to maintain your equilibrium if times are tougher for you than normal. If times are getting tougher for you, if times are tough, this means you have problems and I discuss Einstein's well-known quote: "No problem can be solved from the same consciousness that created it".So how can you use this idea to raise your consciousness to handle your problems better, more elegantly and to get rid of them?I've got some ideas for you.Click this link to register for Charles's next Masterclass (dates will be updated regularly): https://www.passsionquest.com/kovess-...Visit either one or both of my websites.For individual work and to start your Self-Awareness and Passion Quest http://charleskovess.com/For corporate and public programs http://www.kovess.com/Register to receive my regular Passion Points To Ponder via either website.Visit my YouTube page for the video-podcast https://www.youtube.com/user/charlesb...For direct emails and book orders, send me an email: charles@kovess.comTo have a telephone conversation about your Self Awareness and Passion Quest, call me on 0412 317 404.
In this week's episode, I urge you, I ask you, I provoke you to raise your consciousness and awareness around your habits. Are they making you or are they breaking you? How conscious are you about your habits? If I asked you 'what are your habits?', could you tell me? The right habits for you enable you to become all that you dream of, to successfully build the life of your dreams. So it's wakey wakey time. Stick around and watch or listen to the Show; I'll give you some provocative ideas for some great new habits.Click this link to register for Charles's next Masterclass (dates will be updated regularly): https://www.passsionquest.com/kovess-...Visit either one or both of my websites.For individual work and to start your Self-Awareness and Passion Quest http://charleskovess.com/For corporate and public programs http://www.kovess.com/Register to receive my regular Passion Points To Ponder via either website.Visit my YouTube page for the video-podcast https://www.youtube.com/user/charlesb...For direct emails and book orders, send me an email: charles@kovess.comTo have a telephone conversation about your Self Awareness and Passion Quest, call me on 0412 317 404.
In this week's episode, I explore psychological buzzwords that can destroy your work teams and your business or your organisation.Buzzwords like, "I'm not feeling safe. I don't feel respected, I'm feeling psychologically unsafe, I'm feeling bullied, I'm feeling harassed, I'm feeling sexually harassed, some unwanted glances have made me feel uncomfortable," and so on. You need to learn how to handle comments like this and discern the truth from BS, discern what's real from crap. What are the principles for being able to do that?I have six of them for your consideration that I have developed from my 50+ years of business experience, sporting experience, team and organisational experience.I promise that these principles will be of value to you. Click this link to register for Charles's next Masterclass (dates will be updated regularly): https://www.passsionquest.com/kovess-...Visit either one or both of my websites.For individual work and to start your Self-Awareness and Passion Quest http://charleskovess.com/For corporate and public programs http://www.kovess.com/Register to receive my regular Passion Points To Ponder via either website.Visit my YouTube page for the video-podcast https://www.youtube.com/user/charlesb...For direct emails and book orders, send me an email: charles@kovess.comTo have a telephone conversation about your Self Awareness and Passion Quest, call me on 0412 317 404.
In this week's episode, I explore reality. And particularly, the ways in which you are creating your reality. Your own special reality. Are you aware that you are creating it?Do you love your reality? Or are you only enduring it, just putting up with it, just enduring your life? You aren't stuck with it, you know. You can wake up. You can change it.I've got some ideas for you.Click this link to register for Charles's next Masterclass (dates will be updated regularly): https://www.passsionquest.com/kovess-passion-quest46709834?inf_contact_key=f052a112d821823cd4c1ceb675e0b4b3Visit either one or both of my websites.For individual work and to start your Self-Awareness and Passion Quest http://charleskovess.com/For corporate and public programs http://www.kovess.com/Register to receive my regular Passion Points To Ponder via either website.Visit my YouTube page for the video-podcast https://www.youtube.com/user/charlesbkovessFor direct emails and book orders, send me an email: charles@kovess.comTo have a telephone conversation about your Self Awareness and Passion Quest, call me on 0412 317 404.
The joys of learning.

The joys of learning.

2021-06-2728:36

In this week's episode, my big idea that I explore is understanding how to create the joys of learning.I share with you a useful and perhaps new framework for thinking about your learning and your ongoing education. If you use this framework, it will inspire you to shift your thinking around learning, to raise your self-awareness around learning and then to be able to inspire your children, your family, your colleagues, to shift their thinking around learning. I give you a whole bunch of reasons why it is time to shift attitudes to learning and education.Most people, in my experience, are really not interested in learning.If you become very interested in learning, you will be a leader, you will be ahead of the pack. Click this link to register for Charles's next Masterclass (dates will be updated regularly): https://www.passsionquest.com/kovess-passion-quest46709834?inf_contact_key=f052a112d821823cd4c1ceb675e0b4b3Visit either one or both of my websites.For individual work and to start your Self-Awareness and Passion Quest http://charleskovess.com/For corporate and public programs http://www.kovess.com/Register to receive my regular Passion Points To Ponder via either website.Visit my YouTube page for the video-podcast https://www.youtube.com/user/charlesbkovessFor direct emails and book orders, send me an email: charles@kovess.comTo have a telephone conversation about your Self Awareness and Passion Quest, call me on 0412 317 404.
In this week's episode, I explore the tsunami of mental health issues that are dominating and almost swamping Australia, the USA and Western countries. I share my provocative views on these mental health issues and share eleven strategies that will help you get out of bed and get unstuck.We live in an analgesic Society in the West. If you've got something wrong, take a pill and dull the pain. I reject that solution. I reject that model for health.Do you realise how little science lies behind the diagnosis of people with mental illness or less than ideal mental health?Click this link to register for Charles's next Masterclass (dates will be updated regularly): https://www.passsionquest.com/kovess-passion-quest46709834?inf_contact_key=f052a112d821823cd4c1ceb675e0b4b3Visit either one or both of my websites.For individual work and to start your Self-Awareness and Passion Quest http://charleskovess.com/For corporate and public programs http://www.kovess.com/Register to receive my regular Passion Points To Ponder via either website.Visit my YouTube page for the video-podcast https://www.youtube.com/user/charlesbkovessFor direct emails and book orders, send me an email: charles@kovess.comTo have a telephone conversation about your Self Awareness and Passion Quest, call me on 0412 317 404.
In this episode, I explore disappointment.Have you ever been disappointed? I'm sure you have. I've been disappointed, time and time and time again. It's difficult to live life without being disappointed.This week, I'm going to share with you 8 ways to handle disappointment. I think handling disappointment is a crucial skill that will make a massive difference in your life and the lives of those around you. Click this link to register for Charles's next Masterclass (dates will be updated regularly): https://www.passsionquest.com/kovess-passion-quest46709834?inf_contact_key=f052a112d821823cd4c1ceb675e0b4b3Visit either one or both of my websites.For individual work and to start your Self-Awareness and Passion Quest http://charleskovess.com/For corporate and public programs http://www.kovess.com/Register to receive my regular Passion Points To Ponder via either website.Visit my YouTube page for the video-podcast https://www.youtube.com/user/charlesbkovessFor direct emails and book orders, send me an email: charles@kovess.comTo have a telephone conversation about your Self Awareness and Passion Quest, call me on 0412 317 404.
In this week's episode, I explore how seductive it is to play the victim game. I explore how we are surrounded by victims, everywhere, in so many fields of life. It's an easy road to take to play the victim game, but you pay a big price when you choose to play that game. What is that price? That's what I explore. And, your awareness of their price is crucial in your decision-making. I also explore how your self-awareness is so relevant to the decisions you make around this area.Click this link to register for Charles's next Masterclass (dates will be updated regularly): https://www.passsionquest.com/kovess-passion-quest46709834?inf_contact_key=f052a112d821823cd4c1ceb675e0b4b3Visit either one or both of my websites.For individual work and to start your Self-Awareness and Passion Quest http://charleskovess.com/For corporate and public programs http://www.kovess.com/Register to receive my regular Passion Points To Ponder via either website.Visit my YouTube page for the video-podcast https://www.youtube.com/user/charlesbkovessFor direct emails and book orders, send me an email: charles@kovess.comTo have a telephone conversation about your Self Awareness and Passion Quest, call me on 0412 317 404.
In this week's episode, I ask whether it's your responsibility. Is it your responsibility to take a jab of an experimental injection for the good of the country?The government says that it is. I say that it's not. I explore what responsibility actually means. I urge you to do your own thinking about this issue of responsibility and I urge you to resist mob violence, mainstream media and government calls that you should do "your bit for the country". Click this link to register for Charles's next Masterclass (dates will be updated regularly): https://www.passsionquest.com/kovess-passion-quest46709834?inf_contact_key=f052a112d821823cd4c1ceb675e0b4b3Visit either one or both of my websites.For individual work and to start your Self-Awareness and Passion Quest http://charleskovess.com/For corporate and public programs http://www.kovess.com/Register to receive my regular Passion Points To Ponder via either website.Visit my YouTube page for the video-podcast https://www.youtube.com/user/charlesbkovessFor direct emails and book orders, send me an email: charles@kovess.comTo have a telephone conversation about your Self Awareness and Passion Quest, call me on 0412 317 404.
Don't waste these precious assets!In this week's show, I explore your mistakes. That's a scary thought, isn't it? I explore the value of your mistakes and why they are precious assets. Every skill you currently have, you only developed through mistakes and failures. Every single skill. Don't hide from your mistakes. Use the lessons from those mistakes. They are precious valuable, resources. Changing times...incredibly fast-changing times, require you and me to have new skills. We cannot possibly create those new skills without making mistakes. Your attitude to them, your philosophy about them, your principles that govern them are crucial to your future success.Click this link to register for Charles's next Masterclass (dates will be updated regularly): https://www.passsionquest.com/kovess-passion-quest46709834?inf_contact_key=f052a112d821823cd4c1ceb675e0b4b3Visit either one or both of my websites.For individual work and to start your Self-Awareness and Passion Quest http://charleskovess.com/For corporate and public programs http://www.kovess.com/Register to receive my regular Passion Points To Ponder via either website.Visit my YouTube page for the video-podcast https://www.youtube.com/user/charlesbkovessFor direct emails and book orders, send me an email: charles@kovess.comTo have a telephone conversation about your Self Awareness and Passion Quest, call me on 0412 317 404.OV1mJoEZqiUkeMwMw2FG
In this week's show, I discuss industrial hemp, sustainability and your magnificent future. I discuss the creative juices that you need to access to create your magnificent future. I discuss why your capabilities are your greatest security and your greatest protection, particularly against governments that seem hell-bent on borrowing money endlessly, spending, and then expecting us to go, "Oh, yes, governments can just go on borrowing money". Relying on the government is not a great way to create your future.I hasten to add, that when I use the word sustainability, I don't mean we have to act like crazy people to prevent a climate disaster. I am not a believer in anthropogenic climate change. I will tell you why. I will share with you why industrial hemp can be a part of creating your magnificent future in a sustainable way because of the thousands of amazing products that can be made from industrial hemp. Click this link to register for Charles's next Masterclass (dates will be updated regularly): https://www.passsionquest.com/kovess-passion-quest46709834?inf_contact_key=f052a112d821823cd4c1ceb675e0b4b3Visit either one or both of my websites.For individual work and to start your Self-Awareness and Passion Quest http://charleskovess.com/For corporate and public programs http://www.kovess.com/Register to receive my regular Passion Points To Ponder via either website.Visit my YouTube page for the video-podcast https://www.youtube.com/user/charlesbkovessFor direct emails and book orders, send me an email: charles@kovess.comTo have a telephone conversation about your Self Awareness and Passion Quest, call me on 0412 317 404.
On Mother's Day, there are leadership lessons to remember. On this week's episode, on Mother's Day, I invite you to consider leadership models. The vast range of leadership models from which you can choose. And to consider that leadership that your mother showed you. There's a big lesson to be learnt from mothers and your mother, in particular. On this week's episode. I explore a very simple 80/20 model that you can learn from your mother and indeed from your father.80% love those you lead, 20% discipline those you lead. 80% of the time, you love them, 20% of the time you discipline them. And when you are consistently applying this model, it works.I aim to inspire and provoke you to choose a leadership model that works for you.Visit either one or both of my websites.For individual work and to start your Self-Awareness and Passion Quest http://charleskovess.com/For corporate and public programs http://www.kovess.com/Register to receive my regular Passion Points To Ponder via either website.Visit my YouTube page for the video-podcast https://www.youtube.com/user/charlesbkovessFor direct emails and book orders, send me an email: charles@kovess.comTo have a telephone conversation about your Self Awareness and Passion Quest, call me on 0412 317 404.
In this week's show, my big idea is that you do indeed have enough time for what you want, to do what you want, to experience what you want.Most of you have over 50 discretionary hours with which to play each week. I share an exercise with you in this week's episode to prove that this is so and to help you raise your awareness of this time so that you don't live your life under the constant nagging feeling of stress and strain because you feel you don't have enough time. That's a shocking way to live. This week's episode shows you how not to live that way and to live life with elegance, knowing that you have all the time there is.Visit either one or both of my websites.For individual work and to start your Self-Awareness and Passion Quest http://charleskovess.com/For corporate and public programs http://www.kovess.com/Register to receive my regular Passion Points To Ponder via either website.Visit my YouTube page for the video-podcast https://www.youtube.com/user/charlesbkovessFor direct emails and book orders, send me an email: charles@kovess.comTo have a telephone conversation about your Self Awareness and Passion Quest, call me on 0412 317 404.
