Welcome to an extraordinary episode of our podcast, where we have the privilege of sitting down with Laban Ditchburn, the world’s best courage coach. In this remarkable conversation, we’ll explore Laban’s incredible journey of triumph over addiction and his transformation into an inspiration for countless others. Join us as we dive into the fascinating world of bringing influential guests to your podcast, regardless of its size, and learn from Laban’s experience.

Triumph Over Addiction and Transformation

Laban’s story begins with a powerful message of courage and determination. He takes us back to his lowest point, where he found the strength to seek help and embark on a path of recovery. Through unwavering determination and conscious effort, Laban conquered his addictions, overcame physical challenges, and ultimately discovered his life’s purpose.

One of the key takeaways from Laban’s journey is the importance of surrounding oneself with supportive and like-minded individuals. Even when engagement or feedback on social media seems distant, Laban emphasizes the profound impact we can have on others. This thought-provoking discussion sets the stage for an inspiring and transformative podcast experience.

The Podcasting Journey

Laban’s story doesn’t end with his personal transformation. He shares his experience of starting a podcast, a journey filled with significant challenges. Despite facing financial setbacks and personal struggles, Laban’s passion and commitment remained unwavering. He seized every opportunity to learn and grow, even when he felt unsure of what he was doing.

Laban’s turning point came during a period of strict lockdowns when he felt an undeniable urge to share his voice with the world. With only 10 subscribers, he reached out to his idol, Les Brown, who agreed to be a guest on his show. During their conversation, something magical happened.

From Podcast to Book

Les Brown recognized Laban’s potential and encouraged him to write a book based on his gambling background, titled “Bet On You.” Les outlined a blueprint for success, including turning the book into a keynote speech and a three-day retreat. In a moment of audacity, Laban promised to deliver the book by a specific date, despite never having written anything significant before.

Within a mere six weeks, Laban fulfilled his promise and delivered the first draft of the book to Les Brown. This process transformed his life as Les followed through with his commitment, wrote a remarkable foreword, and endorsed the book. Laban’s newfound momentum and confidence led to connections with other influential individuals, including Nobel Prize winners, Olympic gold medalists, and renowned personalities.

Creating a Platform and Inviting Heroes

Laban passionately emphasizes the power of creating a platform and inviting heroes into it. He highlights the importance of approaching these opportunities from a place of service, adding value to others’ lives rather than solely seeking personal gain. Through this approach, Laban formed meaningful relationships, friendships, partnerships, and joint ventures.

Laban’s humility shines through as he expresses deep gratitude for being mentored and inspired by extraordinary people. He underscores that his success did not come from luck but from taking action and overcoming fears and imposter syndrome. Laban encourages listeners to pursue their own dreams and reminds them that there is ample room for like-minded individuals to connect and make an impact.


As the podcast concludes, Laban’s message resonates deeply. Everyone possesses the potential to achieve greatness by taking action and refusing to let self-limiting beliefs hold them back. Overcoming the fear of rejection and the notion that “little old me” isn’t worthy of approaching influential individuals is key. Laban’s story is a testament to the fact that anyone can achieve greatness by overcoming obstacles and taking decisive action.
