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 #SelfBelief coach, 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?
Why would I sell a successful financial services business that I had built from the ground up in order to teach and empower others to live with self-belief?
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 have settled for less than they could be. I’ve had teenage kids tell me that they are failures and always will be, and seen women too afraid to stand up for themselves.
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 an industry I had no experience in as a young man and blew it out of the park. I went into real estate sales and within eighteen months became 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. (I’m a qualified accountant and financial planner with advanced diploma’s).
The business grew rapidly and continued to expand even during the Global Financial Crisis, and became 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. It’s not some pie in the sky feel good philosophy, it’s a way of living and being. You own your self-belief and the only way to do so is by testing yourself and 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 worked with and 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 facilitated personal development seminars for adults.
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 a member of the 5am club.
I like watching comedies and 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, 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 for a long time. When I was at rock bottom I decided to take personal responsibility for improving my mental health so I could live with more balance, wellbeing and success, and in the process heal myself.
I created a mental health program for myself (I called it the Ollin System®) by combining my knowledge of the mind with healthy habits and practical tools to help me bite back so I could start living life on my terms and in the process rebuild the four 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. I also teach the system and the tools I created in the new program.
What does the name ‘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. Pronounced ‘All-In’, it embodies how life should be lived – going all in and living life on your terms.
