real words, real feelings—from real people.
...as I began to peal back the layers of Rocco, I discovered that what I perceived to be arrogance was simply his insistence that both he and I hold ourselves to an altogether higher standard of reasoning, debate, understanding, and inquiry. I learned that my aversions to his methods were not coming from a true desire to become better, but rather were the remnants of outdated internal values and beliefs. Rocco is a true friend, a true leader, and a true philosopher.
I am better for having come across Rocco and his work, and I know you will be, too.
Rocco is for people who want to make a profound impact in the world, who are seeking to establish their ‘voice’ in the world, who are brave about their personal evolution, who are curious about their path in life, who are bold in their aspirations —or who seriously want to be.
My own experience of working with Rocco was that I became better able to bring my fullest, realest self to the journey of finding my voice in the world. It has been a gift for me: everything gets easier when I’m in my deeply authentic form.
Through working with Rocco, I’m learning the tools to help me deal with past trauma, understand the way I see the world is tainted from past experiences and so-called truths I’ve learned as a child. If you’re ready to be honest with yourself and ready to take a step towards being a happier person, then this is your guy. It won’t be easy and it might not be pretty, but it will be worth it. Just like Jiu Jitsu, you learn slowly and some techniques come more naturally than others, but if you keep showing up at some point you will be much better than the person who started.
In so many ways, Rocco helped me to rapidly make sense of my many negative thought patterns borne of my upbringing… and let them go. By helping me to engage with my discomfort I was able to reconcile with my shame and lack of self-worth. I have quietened my inner self-critic that I’d given far too much airtime my whole life. And it’s not too big of a statement to say that working with Rocco effectively cured my lifelong cycles of depression and encouraged me to live bigger and with less fear.
His knowledge of the human psyche, evolutionary psychology, and the human condition gives him the ability to help someone heal their psychological wounds. He has taught me the importance of acknowledging and healing my inner-child.
His goal is to teach me how to reach my full potential through honesty and love. He provided me the proper tools and strategies on how to heal myself. He has also taught me importance of self-permission and self-love.
And third is his immense and practical knowledge gleaned through a lifetime of self learning and hard-knock. He has distilled it all into bite-sized, manageable chunks for immediate application!
I have encountered many coaches within and outside sports, but Rocco is unique in every way. I appreciate his beautiful Socratic style of asking me questions, until I am forced to face everything that is keeping me from being my best self. Working with Rocco has definitely not been a meandering journey of self-discovery and chance, the straight-talk, uncanny ability to crack my armour and cut to the heart of a human being's core issue, is priceless.
What price can I attach to fulfilment in my life, my work and my relationships? My heart is so full and I love my life!
He can distil the most complex nuanced issues and help me open my eyes in ways that have allowed me to upgrade my perspective and my consciousness and accelerate my own healing and growth in ways I am not sure I would ever have to come to without his courage of straight-talk, integrity and authenticity.
His combination of intelligence, openness and vast life experience have coalesced into a person who understands the unique challenges that we face in the modern world. More importantly, he has unique insights on how those challenges can be met head on and overcome, with grace.
Working with Rocco, in really just 7 weeks, helped me overcome some psychological weight that has negatively controlled my life for the past 9 years. It has given me the confidence to lead my life, the freedom to exercise my power to manifest my 'chosen' purpose.
This is a place I haven't occupied for a long time - perhaps ever.
I am incredibly blessed to be the beneficiary of Rocco's experience and teaching and can honestly say that my life can is now clearly separated into before I met Rocco and after.
