Have you ever felt like you didn’t fit in at school? Were you surrounded by people telling you that you would never amount to anything? If so, you know how devastating that can be, especially when you know you’re meant for something more. But how do you move past those old stories and mindsets holding you back?

In this episode of the IHML Show, Philip McKernan shows us the success and power that is possible when you dig deep, let go of perceived inadequacies and take action in the most authentic ways. Growing up in Ireland, Philip was told he would never amount to anything. Most of his life, especially his school years, was defined by the challenges he faced with dyslexia. Despite his struggles, Philip knew deep down he was destined for something different. He began to change his mindset, release his victim story and put one foot in front of the next and move forward. Philip started his coaching business with $200 in the bank and is now a sought-after international speaker, writer and filmmaker. He works with entrepreneurs and business leaders all over the world to support them in developing self-worth, finding clarity in their future and keying into their intuition. After listening to this episode, you’ll understand how releasing old stories and taking intuitive action, even in the smallest of ways, can help you create a life better than your dreams.

(Also note the “Five Happiest Days” exercise that we’ve included in the links below, which will help you create even more amazing days in your life.)

Philip works with entrepreneurs and business leaders all over the world. When people are seeking clarity about their future or want to move through roadblocks, seen and unseen, they call Philip. As a speaker he has inspired and challenged the Canadian Olympic Team and The Pentagon to name a few. With a knack of getting into all sorts of scenarios – he’s caddied in golf for the President of Ireland, been chased and nearly killed by a bull elephant in Nigeria and made wine in Australia. He has traveled to 80 countries around the globe and has worked with orphans in Sri Lanka, Peru, India and Guatemala, written four books despite being dyslexic and his first documentary film was released in late 2016.

Philip believes the path to a happy and fulfilling life is found through the meaning we derive in life through the WORK we do, our relationship to OTHERS and the most important relationship of all, the one with one’s SELF.
