The James Swanwick Show

Life is all about transitions. Things come and go, and nothing lasts forever. Sometimes we need to shift our focus to new things.

This podcast is no different, and so it’s time to say goodbye for now. This show has been a journey filled with a lot of lessons, wonderful reflections, and capturing amazing moments in time.

As my schedule has become busier and my business has begun to take off, I’ve decided to shift my focus - for a little while. I’ll be taking a break from the podcast and see how it goes. Perhaps it’ll come back in a few months, maybe it’ll be an entirely new show, or maybe this phase of life is over.

No matter what I want you to know that I appreciate your support as a listener, and I encourage you to stay in touch with me. Whether it’s through social media, a meeting in person, or an e-mail every now and then to say hi I’d love to hear from you.

On my final episode (for now) I reflect on what I’ve been learning lately. Not just in business, but also in life and personal relationships.

I’ve grown a lot over the last few months and spent the time to reflect on what things have been holding me back for years. I have a feeling you will relate, and hopefully improve yourself as well.

How many times do you feel like your brain is fried? Maybe your body is exhausted? In either case you feel like progress is just a struggle, and that’s the problem of burnout.

Burnout is a serious symptom we all deal with in life, and a lot of that stems from just doing too much and going too far.

The mind and body both need breaks. If you want to build muscle, you can’t if you keep destroying it with high intensity workouts. It needs time to rebuild.

If you keep working, researching, and trying to grow your business your brain will begin to fizzle and you’ll never get the chance to really absorb what you’ve been learning.

As a result, take the time to relax. Take breaks, mentally and physically, so you can go back into the game and really get everything in your life moving where you want it to go.

On this episode of The James Swanwick Show I talk to two fitness entrepreneurs, who are also identical twins, Eric and Chris Martinez. These two guys lost their father as teenagers, and it turned their life upside down. They were getting into trouble and acting out, and knew their life was going down the wrong road.

As a result they ended up moving to Los Angeles and starting over. They built an incredibly successful business and got incredibly fit at the same time.

They’ve joined us to give some amazing tips on how you can progress your mind, body, and business all at the same time without feeling like you have to sacrifice one for the other.

How many times do you find yourself using pick-up lines and feeling anxious about it? Do you feel like you’re exhausted from wearing a mask? Well chances are it’s time for you to move your game up, and be yourself.

One thing everyone wants in a partner is someone who is confident. That doesn’t mean you need to voice your opinion every chance you can, that just means you need to be comfortable being yourself. Own your opinions, but don’t push them.

If you feel like the conversation isn’t going anywhere, and you feel like you need to prove yourself or start talking about your dating “resume” as to why you are such a good guy, pause for a moment. Start talking about THEM.

If you get them talking about themselves, and really clarifying who they are, and what they want it will be so much more beneficial for everyone. They’ll feel heard, and you’ll learn if this relationship is right for you.

Most importantly, listen to the words behind the words. Don’t be afraid to dig in to who they are and what makes them tick.

On this episode of the James Swanwick Show, we are joined by Richard Fletcher. Richard lives in England, and is a relationship coach for men. He’s not about giving pick-up lines or teaching you how to put on a mask to land the girl of your dreams. Instead he helps you find the right person for you, and how you can find the perfect relationship that allows you to be you.
