100NO 200: Our most powerful mentors

100 Not Out turns 200 Not Out! On this very special episode we reveal our greatest mentors in life – and the answers may surprise you.

There is no denying the influence of mentors in our life – both empowering and disempowering. Anyone who has had a troubled upbringing via disempowered parents can attest to the struggle they have had to overcome as a result of it. Conversely, anyone who has benefitted greatly from mentors will only too happily share just what impact it has had.

So we both share our greatest personal and professional mentors in the hope that you will identify who yours are too, and fill in any missing gaps should you need to.

100NO 198: From Extreme To Balance With Hillary King-Sullivan

This is an inspiring story about someone who, liked thousands of others in the health and wellness world, thought that her “extreme” behaviour was a “balanced life”. Can you relate to this?

For Hillary King-Sullivan, attending the 100 Not Out Longevity Retreat to Ikaria was the turning point. She described the event not as a holiday or a retreat, but an immersion, which is why, in her own words, she has made such incredible, lasting change since.

Tune in for this remarkable story of transformation and inspiration. And if you’re ready to make a significant shift in your life, just like Hillary did, come and join us in Ikaria for the 2017 Greek Island Longevity Retreat.

Also, for more on Hillary’s incredible back story, listen to episode 287 of The Wellness Guys, where LT and Damian ask Hillary about the premature death of her husband and how she has raised her two incredible sons, Hamish & Giles.

100NO 197: Bette Green: 92 & Flying

Bette Green is not your average 92 year old. A remarkable woman who has made the headlines for her active exercise habit – you can read more on that here – but what you’ll find in this interview is that Bette is an incredible example of living the 100 Not Out Lifestyle.

She has grieved for children and still maintains optimism. She has seen world wars take place, and still loves the world we live in. She enjoys the simple pleasures of life, and doesn’t get caught up in bright shiny objects.

In short, Bette Green is a marvellous template for living the 100 Not Out life.

Time is running out to join us on our 100 Not Out Longevity Retreat to Ikaria. Registrations close January 30. All details here or at www.100notout.com/ikaria

100NO 196: China’s Hottest Grandpa Challenges Our Thoughts

The incredible story of Wang Deshun (aka China’s Hottest Grandpa) was the tipping point of inspiration for Marcus to do an about-face and jump in the ocean with Damian, Don Riddington and a group of 100 Not Out Lifestyle Event attendees.

Wang Deshun is not unlike many of the 100 Not Out legends we have interviewed on this podcast. He is determined, has a very clear vision, and does not let his age limit any objective.

There is so much wisdom in the living legends we are fortunate to live with today. Wang is just one of them. We encourage you to use people like Wang as vehicles to challenge ANY limiting beliefs you have about your life.

100NO 194: Christmas Stress Tips

It’s easy to fall in a heap at Christmas time. Family stress, financial stress, logistical stress, year-end functions and social gatherings, and so on.

100NO 193: One Year No Beer With Andy Ramage

Our guest on this edition of 100 Not Out is a fascinating human being.

Andy Ramage is a former professional athlete turned oil broker who decided to go one year without beer – and it has stuck.

Andy is also a master practitioner of NLP, a mindfulness based awareness coach and is currently studying for a master’s degree in both positive psychology and coaching psychology.

A love of wellbeing and peak performance led Andy to stop drinking alcohol in the face of massive social pressure. Running a brokerage in the city and ‘not drinking’ is almost unheard of. From this experience he realised that there were probably millions of others out there desperate for a break from alcohol who could not overcome this pressure. So he wrote a book and co-founded a movement with Ruari Fairbairn’s called OneYearNoBeer a 30, 90 and 365 day alcohol free challenge to change peoples perception of alcohol.

Andy’s unique background, education and experience of running OneYearNoBeer make him one of the world’s leading habit change experts.

Questions we ask Andy on this episode include –

Q: Why did you go One Year No Beer?

Q: What’s the response been like from your peer group?

Q: Andy you’re a former professional athlete turned oil broker – how has the response been amongst friends with your approach?

Q: During this process Andy dropped from 28% body-fat to 10% & his daily routines make sure he is in better physical health than ever been before – Was it just NO BEER that made the change?

Q: What do you say to people who have a drink every now and again. Like one beer a week or fortnight, or just a random glass of wine?

Q: What impact has OYNB / going without beer had on your family life?

Q: Is OYNB mainly for people who feel that beer (or alcohol) is weilding too big an influence in their life?

Q: Let’s discuss some of the 7 tips in the Mind Body Green article by Andy

100NO 192: Blue Zones to Green Zones with Carina Aaltonen

During our time in Ikaria we were fortunate to meet Carina Aaltonen. Carina has been a Member of Parliament in Aaland (near Finland) since 2003 and is on a mission to create one of the healthiest and fulfilled communities in the world.

Carina travelled to Ikaria to observe just how they had not only created their lifestyle, but owned in so strongly despite the pace of the world increasing, technology taking over manual labour, and communication and relationship changes from generation to generation.

We picked Carina’s brain on a number of topics, including –

Tell us about the Aaland Islands – population, lifestyle, and so on. 

What inspired you to travel to Ikaria?

What education do you have to provide the public with in order for them to get involved?

What impact do you envisage this process having on the rest of Finland and the EU?

What are the MOST important parts of society to get RIGHT in order to be a Blue Zone?

How long is the vision? Do you see this is a 10-20-50 year project?
