Helping people believe in themselves.
It’s what I believe in, teach, and speak about. It’s my purpose, my passion, and my mission in life…
“Helping people believe in themselves”
Hi, I’m Adam and welcome to my page
I’m a personal development teacher, speaker, author, and mental health advocate.
I’ve invested more than thirty years researching, studying and applying the principles of self-belief, human potential, personal leadership and success into my own life so I can teach others how to believe in themselves.
Why is #SelfBelief so important to me?
There are two reasons and both are personal. Firstly, growing up I had zero self-belief and self-worth and no confidence at all.
My lack of self-belief and confidence was causing me to live a half-hearted life and I grew to dislike the person staring back at me in the mirror because of how it was affecting me.
Secondly, I still see it in the eyes of others and it gets to me. I’ve had grown men tell me candidly that they have lacked self-belief all their life and feel like a phony, even though they have successful careers and businesses.
I’ve had teenage kids tell me that they are failures and always will be and also women who have settled for less than they could be.
As I said, my mission is personal and important to me.
If you have faith in yourself, you can change your life and the lives of others.
How did I discover #SelfBelief in my life?
In addition to immersing myself in self-help and personal development literature and programs I went into the real estate industry with no experience and blew it out of the park, becoming the biggest listing salesperson in a group of six offices.
Then taking all I’d learnt, I developed my own formal system for success and started a financial services business from scratch and built it from the ground up. (I’m a qualified accountant and financial planner).
The business grew rapidly and continued to expand even during the Global Financial Crisis, was very successful and highly profitable, with revenue doubling for five consecutive years.
All these experiences taught me a valuable lesson…
#SelfBelief needs to be personal and practical. You need to own your self-belief and the only way to do that is by testing yourself by getting out of your comfort zone so you can learn to…
- Stand on your own two feet,
- Live life on your terms, and
- Live with courage.
It’s as simple, honest, and straightforward as that.
In saying all this, life hasn’t been all sunshine and rainbows. I’ve had my share of failures, setbacks, and disappointments personally and professionally. I’ve had to deal with mental illness, failed relationships, loneliness, and having no one believe in me other than myself, which I often questioned!
And yet here I am, still standing and still passionate about my life and the work I’m doing – helping people believe in themselves.
A few other things about me…
I was mentored by Bob Proctor and incorporate many of the lessons and guidance Bob passed onto me into my programs.
I’ve run personal development programs for at-risk youth, conducted sales training programs across diverse industries including financial services, electrotechnology and real estate, and I run personal development seminars.
I’m a long-time supporter of World Vision and also support Save the Children. I love the Parramatta Eels rugby league team, cricket, fitness, I meditate every day, and an early riser.
I like watching comedies and wildlife doco’s (when I get the time) and love sushi. I work in shorts and a t-shirt when I’m not speaking or running my programs.
I have a library of hundreds of books, programs and audios on topics of the mind, personal development, self-image, neuroplasticity, epigenetics, the quantum sciences, biology, psychology, biographies, and other success literature, and have spent thousands of dollars and countless hours learning as much as I can about human potential, personal development, and #SelfBelief.
I’m also a Ho’oponopono practitioner and teach this ancient art for self healing in my new program which is due out soon!
My greatest love are my kids, the work I do, catching and watching the ocean waves roll in – I’ve been dumped by a few!
I now run Adam Medaglia Inc, aka Mindset Motivation, and my mission is to empower people to believe in themselves and live with #SelfBelief.

I’m also a mental health advocate because I suffered with mental illness. When I was at rock bottom I decided to take personal responsibility for improving my mental health and start healing myself so I could live with more balance, wellbeing and life success.
In addition to seeking therapy I created a mental health self-improvement program and called it the Ollin System®, by combining my knowledge of the mind with healthy practical tools and strategies to help me bite back against mental illness so I could start living life on my terms and in the process rebuild the five key areas of my life that were suffering badly.
It worked because I’m alive today and have come out the other side a different man.
What does ‘Ollin’ mean?
‘Ollin’ is an ancient Aztec word that means…
to act now with all your heart, to follow your path wholeheartedly, and go all-in.
In order to rebuild my life, improve my mental health and bite back against mental illness I knew I had to go all in if I ever had any chance. The word Ollin represented that and is why I called it the Ollin System.
Pronounced ‘All-In’, Ollin embodies how life should be lived – going all in and living life on your terms.
