HAM57 – Justin Tsui of Win Each Day

In episode 57, Brandon and Seibo sit down with Justin Tsui. Justin began enveloped in the world of football, eventually becoming a high school physical education teacher; he taught a wide variety of sports from hockey to football where he developed his skills of coaching, teaching and mentoring. His experience building up young adults into competitive athletes developed into finding new methods to how these athletes could address and manage their emotions and mindset in the world of sport.

After flourishing for many years, Justin was at a turning point – on paper he had it all, but he was left wondering why he was still left unfulfilled. Fast forward to today and Justin is now a health and wellness businessman providing a refuge for people who are seeking mentoring with regards to how tackle their emotional challenges head on and develop the skills to manage and navigate personal turmoil. Episode 57 delves deep into the struggles of resolving relationships and personal challenges focusing on: - How do we keep ourselves accountable with the individual we want to be? -

Being consistent with our character and being the best version of ourselves, not just in our professional lives, but also our personal lives with friends and family - How do we balance our behaviours and attitudes with strangers compared to our loved ones – why do feel it is permitted to be patient with the young athletes we coach, but forget to extend the sentiment to our own sons or daughters? - Why is communication so important as father figures and partners?

The group break down the importance of communicating and disclosing our feelings to cultivate good relationships with our children and partners, as well as the consequences of not cultivating our emotional intelligence or maintaining good, consistent communication with loved ones. The trio then move on to discuss the need for support groups to allow ourselves to open up about our feelings, territory we as males are commonly reluctant to venture into.

Why are individuals like Brandon able create havens that allows people to feel comfortable and open up? – it all comes down to trust, vulnerability, and honesty. Finally the discussions conclude with the importance of trust and intuition when it comes to forming genuine relationships. Seibo and Justin reflect about the people they have met in their life time, coming to the understanding how much an individual’s character plays a much larger role in forming these relationships compared to the conventional, even opportunistic criteria such as: profession, academics or qualifications.

This trust, combined with listening to your own intuition plays an important role for finding like minded people enabling you to grow and develop. The trio ends out the podcast by underlying the three most important things to take away from the podcast and where to find Justin at the Win Each Day Facebook group.
