Peter Crone: Bridging Physical Vitality & Mental Peace
“If you're feeling a certain way, you're going to know to a certain degree what state you're in. If you're feeling sad, apathetic, resigned, or depressed, these are all indicators that you're in some form of resistance. Realizing that is actually a gift because how else are you going to know what your relationship is with reality? Conversely, if you're feeling joy, freedom, or a sense of peace or love in your relationship, these are references to the soul or true essence of who you are. That is your guiding force.” – Peter Crone

Work with Peter Crone
Whether we realize it or not – we exist within mental constructs. Albeit invisible, they dictate our thoughts, feelings, actions, and consequently results. All psychological problems, suffering, and unfulfilled desires are the byproduct of these invisible mental constraints.
To create an extraordinary life, we have to both consciously reveal the current limiting frameworks of our perceived reality as well as create new contexts for an expanded existence. In order to realize our potential, it’s necessary to step outside of the world as we know it, which naturally brings with the new possibilities of an entirely new experience of oneself and life. Peter’s work breaks through these constraints and takes a mindset of surviving to one of thriving.
Peter has worked with corporations, individuals, and athletes by offering them assistance as a Mind Coach in:
- 1-on-1 Coaching
- Intimate Conversations
- Digital Programs
- Corporate Speaking & Workshops

Power Quotes From The Show

“In terms of helping, I allow people to embrace their humanity. So, regardless of their abilities or talents, I help them to bridge the gap between this man-made, fabricated image that supersedes any human capacity and their humanity. Many people become so blown up by their ego that their downfall is them trying to sustain it which is just impossible.” – Peter Crone
“If you look at social media and the actual mechanism of ‘liking' something, it's really saying, ‘like me.' Talk about attention seeking! To me, that is a facet and an extension of the egoic part of a human being which by design is not liked, is not loved, and is not enough. So, here is this external validation which will never ever actually overcome the belief that ‘I'm not that.' This is the catch; this is the addiction that we can never get enough of something that almost works. It doesn't matter if you have a million likes; you want to get 1.5 million likes because you're being driven by something that is inherently not something.” – Peter Crone
“The ego doesn't want to be healed; it wants to be held. By its design, the ego is an entity that we human beings have and its foundation is inadequacy, scarcity, and insecurity. These are just the qualities of the ego and if we can accept that, then we can be the bigger being and be aware of its presence in order to hold space for it. The ego is just like a child that needs to be held and hugged when it becomes upset. When the human adult has their woes and their sadness, they tend to judge and resist. That's where a lot of the suffering comes from.” – Peter Crone
“Suffering is resistance and resistance is suffering. When we don't want things that are the way they are, we're going to suffer. I have this intimate relationship with reality; I allow things to be what they are and simultaneously I consider myself the master of my own destiny. Not in an egotistical control way, but I am doing the best I can to generate, create, and design the life that I choose. It doesn't always work out but there's harmony in that.” – Peter Crone
“Even though it looked like my friend was experiencing sadness when she found out that her grandfather had passed away, to me, it was a reflection of love. That to me is freedom versus happiness on a positive scale. There's something beautiful about grief or missing somebody you love. That to me is the full gambit of human experience and that's joy. I'm not resisting any of my feelings; I'm allowing allow of my feelings to be shared.” – Peter Crone
