What does it take to be one of the best in the world in one sport? Then what about two sports? Meet Matt Murphy. Previously one of the best triathletes in the world and now top 10 Obstacle Course Racer, Matt is a rare breed of superstar. Passion, drive and determination oozes out of him as he normalises a life of pushing his absolute limits.
Matt is the perfect person to feature on the Your Revolution Podcast as he has absolutely created an extraordinary life for himself. He won't settle and daily he chooses to better himself in every way. Driven by the desire to be the best Dad and husband he can be, as well as continually fight for everything he can, Matt shows us all what we are actually capable of.
Currently chasing top 3 in the world for OCR (Obstacle Course Racing), Matt is also a business owner. As the director of Bright Bootcamps, Matt runs a successful training business in the beautiful Alpine region of Bright in Victoria's north. Bright Bootcamps is currently expanding into a custom built facility that will host not only the daily training of his clients but also a range of specific camps for people looking to take their training and fitness to the next level.
Matt Murphy is one in a billion. We all have so much to learn from this incredible man and we are so excited to welcome him to the podcast.
So often we say we don't have time or we're too busy, but all we're really saying is that it is not enough of a priority for us.
Priority is the centre point of time, energy and effort allocation. And if by analysing your schedule you feel like the allocation is off, then this is your cue to create change.
Our brains try to keep us safe and to our brains change is unsafe. But what about a life whereby you live by someone else's priorities? Or worse still priorities set for you by society? How safe is that?
The only question you need to ask is what is important to you? And how is your schedule reflecting and supporting this?
If your health is a priority, make time for it. If the love of your life is a priority, make time for them, engage with them, show them love, through your energy and enthusiasm as well as your time. Work taking up too much of your time? How productive are you actually being? And what about those kids? Number 1 priority? Yet you're stuck at work and grouchy and tired all the time as a result, not to mention ashamed of your body and disappointed in yourself so of course you snap at them constantly. That's not priority. That's turning the joys of your life into chores because you lack pride in the place that you are in.
What kind of life are you allowing for yourself by sacrificing your priorities for what you think you "should" be doing?
Want this to change? Then take notes on this one.
Meet Hayden Quinn. At just 30 years of age, Hayden has shown us what passion and hard work can do. Years ago he starred on Masterchef, but since then he has created TV shows, written books, opened a gym and inspired millions of people through education, insight and excitement about how they can live their best life.
Hilarious, natural and so driven, Hayden is a total game-changer. I sat through the interview amazed at the passion of this Aussie-guy-next-door. I learnt so much from his attitude, his perseverance and his energy.
Hayden isn’t a success today because of Masterchef 8 years ago. Hayden is a success because he chooses to be every day. He works hard and sometimes he struggles, but none of it has been handed to him and it’s his attitude and work ethic that keeps seeing him climb.
What I want for this podcast is for you to realise that his story isn’t a fairytale of luck but it’s a story that shows us that we can do anything we want. We don’t need to wait for perfect conditions to start we just have to start. And once we start that’s when the magic really begins. The process of our life is our life and the longer you put everything on hold because the conditions aren’t perfect, the further away your life gets.
So with that being said I hope you enjoy todays episode with Hayden as much as I enjoyed recording it for you.
I guess you could say haters are gonna hate. But what can we do about it?
This week on the Your Revolution Podcast, Jane Erbacher talks about criticism. Where does it come from and what can we do when it's directed at us?
It's clear the majority of time that when criticism comes our way it's not even about us. It's a reflection of insecurity and it's usually within the context of our deeply ingrained tall poppy syndrome. But does that help when we feel under attack? And when we are, what can we do?
Have a listen to find out how you can stand up for yourself and how you can stop the movement of jealousy and hate.
This week on the Your Revolution Podcast, Jane Erbacher speaks with Eliza Paschke.
Eliza is a bright, bubbly, enthusiastic and fun 30 year old with what seems to be a carefree life. But Eliza's story is one that many of us can relate to. For years Eliza has battled with anxiety and depression and at her lowest could barely leave the house.
This conversation is open and honest and really tackles some of the most relevant issues affecting our society today.
We underestimate the courage it takes to talk truthfully about our lives and I am so grateful to Eliza for sharing her experience. We can all learn something from each others story and I hope so much that Eliza's story leaves an impact on you and inspires you to change the conversation around mental illness.
Lee is not an ordinary man. He is one of those people you meet who takes set backs as lessons and bounces back stronger than before. He is one of those people we can all learn from and we are so lucky to have him share his story with us.
From professional cricket to studying a double masters, to surviving Survivor and now running a successful business and raising two young boys, Lee has done it all. But it hasn't all been smooth sailing and his story is one that will change your perspective, your attitude and potentially your life.
This weeks Your Revolution podcast is all about overcoming set backs and creating your own strength, both inside and out. Don't miss this opportunity to tune in and create the change necessary to make your life even better.
What does engagement actually mean? And is it that important?
I realised a couple of weeks ago that engaging with my life and connecting with those around me was really what it is all about. There's a lot of hype around mindfulness and awareness, but what about focused and genuine engagement?
I believe that while awareness lays the foundation, it is only through actually connecting and really engaging with your life - both intrinsically and extrinsically - that magic can be created.
Today's Your Revolution podcast is all about this. Learning to build awareness about your life, from your feelings and thoughts, to your dreams and hopes and all the action in between by truly and wholly engaging with it. Paying attention, putting in effort, striving and taking steps to be better every single day, connecting with those around you and having an impact on the world - this is engagement. And now is the time.
Every single day, our actions and our behaviours need to be a reflection of our passions and our purpose. What do you want from your life? What's it all for? Where are you going? What are you working towards?
How often do you ask yourselves these questions? And how clear are you about the answers?
Episode 54 of the Your Revolution podcast addresses all these questions. Tune in to hear how Jane Erbacher recommends you answer them and how from right this moment you can set yourself on a path towards what it is you really want for your life.
This week on the Your Revolution Podcast, Jane Erbacher addresses the question of contentment.
Contentment is defined as peaceful happiness and for so many of us, this is the ultimate goal: "I just want to feel content".
But what if I asked you if you were content with your life right now? And then I asked you if you were content being content?
For me life isn't simply peaceful happiness or smooth sailing. It's a challenge. It's ups and downs. It's excitement and growth. It's disappointment and pain.
But you don't get stronger or build resilience by staying the same and being content. You get stronger by getting uncomfortable and taking action. You get stronger by surviving traumas and our heartbreaks. You get stronger by wanting more and not settling.
If you're miserable, complaining, afraid or dissatisfied, stop waiting. Take action. Make changes. Don't settle for "content". Live.
This week on the podcast, Jane Erbacher speaks with NYC based Spiritual healer, yoga teacher, nutrition coach and and personal trainer Jaci Pearse.
This episode is like no other, as Jaci delves into the energy and spirit world with her absolute faith in what is out there. Definite, compelling and extremely sincere, this conversation will blow you away and leave you believing absolutely in instinct, intuition and the idea that there is definitely more out there.
Thank you Jaci for joining us, you are amazing. Oh and happy birthday!!
This week on the Your Revolution Podcast, Jane Erbacher speaks with the incredible Hamish Blake.
The Your Revolution Podcast is all about BETTERMENT. How can I learn, grow and improve in order to better my life and the world?
This week our guest Hamish Blake epitomises the mission of the podcast and we are so excited to feature him.
Hamish Blake is the "everyman". We all feel like he's our friend and we have loved watching him grow on our screens and on the radio. He is hilariously funny, warm and open, while also being extremely insightful, hard working and earnest. And the conversation this week with Jane will have you loving him even more!
Hamish's mission in life is to make people happy. And I think you'll agree after listening to this episode that his mission to achieve that has been successful. Thank you so much Hamish for being such an awesome man and role model and thank you for being on our podcast.
This week on the Revo PT podcast, Jane Erbacher talks all things FOCUS.
We live in a culture that values productivity and being busy above all else and as a result the pressure we feel to go go go can be overwhelming.
But how fulfilling is this really? To keep all of our life tabs open requires our focus and our focus requires our energy. When our focus and energy is divided, our results suffer and we wind up disengaged and exhausted.
Improving your ability to focus starts with prioritising that which is most important to you and eliminating the rubbish. Saying no and investing fully equals more commitment to less commitments and more commitment equals more fulfilment.
Everyday of your life is your life. What are you really missing by not paying attention to what is happening right now?
This week on the Revo PT podcast Jane Erbacher speaks with Nathan McCulloch.
This week on the Revo PT podcast, Jane Erbacher talks about all things purpose. Sometimes we can get overwhelmed by the topic of purpose. We feel stuck if we don't have one and afraid that if we do it's not noble enough. Well I'm here to tell you now how you can not only find yours, but feel proud of it and live by it.
The first step is to set out your intentions for your life? What are the core beliefs or values you stand for? What's important to you and why?
Second step is to start living by these intentions every day.
Step three is to strive for betterment every day. In any way how can you be better today than you were yesterday?
This is how we find purpose. This is how we live our lives and this is how we create a lasting impact on the world around us.
What can you do right now that will make your life better? Have a look around. Who do you surround yourself with? Are the people in your life making it better or worse? And how are you contributing to their lives?
Who you surround yourself with says a lot about how much you value yourself. You deserve to be around people who love, respect and value you and now is the time to ensure that you are surrounded with the best.
With the New Year around the corner, nearly everybody is proposing big change for their lives. Resolutions are all the rage but seriously why do we need to wait until then to make our lives better?
Everyday is your life and everyday is your opportunity. What do you want to change? Why do you want to change it? How are you going to do it and what are you waiting for??
Have a listen today to find out how you can start to improve your life right now. Enjoy! And happy new year!
Career leaper, adventure seeker, action taker - meet Steven Bishop. Director of Urban Heartbeat and Trix 4 Trex Steven Bishop is here to tell his awesome story of taking a career leap of faith.
Stuck in a job that didn't inspire him and was leaving him feeling trapped, Stevie decided that life was too short and left.
Since then he has created two incredible travel businesses: Trix 4 Trex and Urban Heartbeat.
Trix 4 Trex is exactly that - advice, tips and support for travellers. Where to go, what to do, how to get there, anything you can think of for your travelling adventure, Stevie is the guy for you.

The reason he's on our podcast? Not only is he a kick-arse guy, his story is inspiring and full of passion. We hope it drives you to take the necessary action to make your life better in some way.
What should I eat? When should I eat it? How much? These are all questions I am asked multiple times a day. The majority of the population has the desire to change their body, yet somehow we keep getting bigger and bigger. Why is this?
Nutrition starts in the head. While short term diets, challenges and detoxes will no doubt yield results, most of these are unsustainable. How about instead of following yet another elimination diet which sets you up for failure, you try something new? Why don't you tune in to what your body really wants and needs and how it actually feels? Our body tells us everything, we just have to have the guts to listen and take action.
Your best body starts right here, but only if you want it.
How do you set about creating your revolution? Is it by focusing on the now? Being mindful, present, grateful and engaged in the now? Or is it by looking forward, setting goals and taking action towards tomorrow?
Have a listen to how you can start living the life you want in a few easy steps while also working towards an even better future.
Meet Aaron Scarborough. One of the owners of Iron Revolution - A powerlifting, strongman and strength gym in Melbourne.
Not only is this guy an awesome coach and man, he's here to tell us all about what Strongman training is and why you should give it a go.
Strongman training is functional strength in its purest form. Think pulling, carrying, dragging, pushing and lifting all sorts of objects with just you. Awesome for strength, fitness and building mental and physical capacity.
This guy is awesome and I'm so grateful for his insight and passion.
Are you stuck in your comfort zone and can't see a way out? It's a funny thing our comfort zone because it is actually comfortable, and is comfortable even that bad? Well you tell me.
How would you rate your life? How passionate are you? Are you living intentionally? With purpose? How about your love? Relationships? Your career? Your body? Are you living unconsciously, waiting for 5 o'clock, waiting for the weekends, waiting for holidays?
How do you really feel?
Today's episode is about getting honest. Where are you now, where would you like to be and how are you going to get there?
Right or wrong sometimes life gets in the way of our grand plans and no amount of positive thinking can help. This last week I've been sick, Trump got elected and my computer got completely wiped. Not life-ending by any standards but for some reason I got seriously derailed.
Like an idiot I tried to push through. I ignored the messages my body was giving me - I mean I had things to do! - And as a result I got sicker.
It made me think that when life doesn't go according to plan this isn't always a bad thing! A derail offers us time for us to take stock of our lives and really assess whether where we are going is where we want to be going. It gives us a chance to rest and recuperate and it gives us an opportunity to withdraw from the pressure to always be ok.
All we have control over is our reaction to life and our outlook on life and it's about time that we realised that our reactions don't always have to be positive in order to have a positive impact on our lives.
