  • What if you were one action away from achieving your goals and changing your life?

    You already know that mindset is the beginning of everything. But limiting beliefs can be tricky to identify, and they often work to subconsciously hold you back by making you feel overwhelmed and unprepared as you make progress. And sometimes all you need to do to overcome these obstacles is one more thing.

    To talk about this powerful mindset, I’m thrilled to have Ed Mylett on our show today. Ed is an entrepreneur, keynote speaker, philanthropist, podcast host, and best-selling author of #Max Out Your Life: Strategies for Becoming an Elite Performer. In his newest book, The Power of One More: The Ultimate Guide to Happiness and Success, he teaches you how to turn emotion into action through the power of one more.

    You’re much closer to your dreams than you realize, but you have to change your mindset towards success first. You never know when you’re one relationship, one meeting, one decision away from achieving greatness. Listen in, as Ed walks you through how to overcome the beliefs holding you back by going one extra step.

  • How do you unleash radical confidence?

    Confidence is a subject that comes up a lot in our community and there’s a misconception that it means you no longer have doubt, fear, or insecurities. But building self-assurance doesn’t mean you get rid of those feelings. Instead, it’s a series of steps you take to overcome these internal struggles.

    To talk more on this subject, I’m delighted to have Lisa Bilyeu on our show today. Lisa is cofounder of Quest Nutrition, cofounder and President of Impact Theory, and host of Women of Impact show. She’s also the author of the brand-new book, Radical Confidence: 10 No-BS Lessons on Becoming the Hero of Your Own Life, where she shares exactly how radical and life-changing self-empowerment can be.

    Confidence isn’t an all-or-nothing experience. You don’t have to be perfect. You can be afraid. You can fail. But you can’t let that stop you. Listen in, as Lisa walks you through the gut-check questions you can ask yourself in every situation that will unleash your radical confidence.

  • How do you train your attention and stop your mind from wandering in only twelve minutes a day?

    Maintaining your attention and focus in a world filled with distractions can be very difficult. The constant disruption of notifications can start to feel like you don’t have ownership over your own mind. But solutions like avoiding technology for periods of time rely on external intervention rather than giving you control over your ability to concentrate.

    To go in-depth on this topic, I’m thrilled to have Dr. Amishi Jha on the show today. Dr. Jha is a neuroscientist and professor of psychology at the University of Miami. She’s also the author of the bestselling book, Peak Mind: Find Your Focus, Own Your Attention, Invest 12 Minutes a Day. Packed with over fifteen years of research, her book gives you practical steps on how to use mindfulness training to regain your ability to be present in any situation—in only twelve minutes a day.

    Technology is a necessity in the modern world. Instead of removing access to digital devices, you can train your attention to be distraction-proof. Listen in, as Dr. Jha gives you actionable steps to start training your focus, notice where your attention is at any given time, and learn how to redirect to get back on track.

  • Is setting goals the best way to unlock your true potential?

    We talk a lot about the importance of goal setting and how to set smart goals. But sometimes fear of failure can create unintentional limits within your goals, and that can actually end up holding you back. What if there was a better way to look at your goals so that you don’t just reach them, but achieve so much more?

    I’m thrilled to have Emmanuel Acho on our show today to talk more in-depth about this topic. Emmanuel is a former NFL player who earned his Master’s Degree in Sports Psychology during his off-seasons. He’s an Emmy Award-Winning Fox Sports Analyst, host of an acclaimed video series, and author of the New York Times instant bestseller, Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man. Emmanuel’s newest book, Illogical: Saying Yes to a Life Without Limits, breaks down how to defy logic so that you can dream bigger and break through your limitations.

    Fear of failure often fills the space between where you currently are and where you want to be. To overcome that fear, you have to redirect your perspective of failure by letting go of logic so you can keep pushing yourself beyond what conventional wisdom says is possible. If you live in a world where you compare yourself to a standard, this episode is for you.

  • How do you work smarter and not harder?

    If you’re like the rest of us, you want to become more efficient by working smarter—not just harder. You already know what it’s like to feel overwhelmed with long to-do lists, stressful demands, and the pressure of not having enough time. This burden can feel even heavier when all of these tasks feel high-priority and can’t be ignored.

    Today, I want to talk about how to focus on the things that matter the most so that you can exert the same amount of effort but yield the highest possible rewards.

    When you’re weighed down with an endless list of tasks, it can feel like you’re being held back and aren’t able to pursue the things you really want to do. Even worse, it can lead to burnout. So if you’re struggling to identify how to apply your efforts to produce maximum results, this episode is for you.

  • How do you go from stressed to motivated?

    When you’re under pressure, you may not look beyond today’s circumstances for what’s causing your stress. But the truth is, how you react to challenging situations now is directly tied to events you’ve already faced. The key to overcoming that stress is figuring out how your present feelings are being influenced by your past.

    I’m thrilled to have Dr. Don Wood on the show today. Dr. Wood is a clinical psychologist and founder of the Inspired Performance Institute. After years of research, he created the TIPP method as a holistic approach to heal the effects of trauma on the body and mind, and is the author of You Must Be Out of Your Mind: We All Need A Reboot and Emotional Concussions: Understanding How Our Nervous System is Affected By Events and Experiences.

    We all have stress on a day-to-day basis, but how well you handle today’s stress depends on how you managed your earlier stress. Fear and stress are signposts your mind has created based on these past experiences and how you coped then will influence your stress levels in the current situation. Listen in as Dr. Wood shares insights into recognizing these patterns and gives you actionable steps so you can transform the stress in your life into motivation.

  • What is the power of a having bittersweet outlook?

    If you’re like most people, you’ve probably felt the pressure to always look on the bright side and act happy no matter what. While there is a place for optimism and positivity, you may actually be doing yourself a terrible disservice by burying your sad and melancholy feelings all the time.

    To explore this topic deeper, I’m thrilled to have bestselling author Susan Cain on our show today. Susan is the author of "QUIET: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking" and "Quiet Power: The Secret Strengths of Introverts." Through her powerful TED talk, she has helped millions of introverts feel seen and understood. In her latest book, "Bittersweet: How Sorrow and Longing Make Us Whole," she discovered that sadness and melancholy are key to achieving transcendence and feeling connected to others.

    Susan’s journey began by wanting to understand why people are drawn to rainy days and sad songs. She discovered that tapping into those bittersweet emotions can help you open your heart and see the world through new eyes. Listen in as Susan explains how finding beauty in sorrow, heartache, and longing can help you feel less alone.

  • How do you recover from COVID brain?

    Most people are familiar with the physical symptoms of COVID, but it also affects the brain. Things like memory loss, difficulty concentrating, and loss of taste and smell can last much longer than the initial infection. With more information emerging every day, it can start to feel overwhelming and increase your overall stress. But there are actionable steps you can implement in your daily lifestyle to reduce these symptoms and maintain your physical and brain health.

    To go more in depth on this topic, we’re excited to have Dr. Daniel Amen back on our show. Dr. Amen is a physician, double-board certified psychiatrist, and founder of Amen Clinics and BrainMD. He’s a twelve-time New York Time bestselling author, including his latest book "You, Happier: The 7 Neuroscience Secrets of Feeling Good Based on Your Brain Type."

    As a physician and psychiatrist, Dr. Amen saw first-hand the emotional and mental impact COVID had on his patients. By using the over 200,000 brain scans in his clinic, he developed several practical recommendations to help you reduce COVID-related inflammation and maintain your overall brain health. If you or someone you know has been struggling with long-term COVID brain symptoms, this episode is for you.

    Please remember to consult a physician or other health practitioner before making any major decisions regarding your physical or mental health. This episode is not intended to treat or diagnose any medical conditions.

  • What is the best way to take notes so that you can remember more?

    Many of you have heard about the learning curve, but did you also know there’s a forgetting curve? Research shows that within 48 hours of encountering new information, most people forget up to 80% of what they read or heard. So, how can you change the way you learn to remember more in less time?

    In today’s episode, I’m going to walk you through one of my favorite note-taking methods. This technique is not only easy to learn and simple to execute, it’s also a powerful tool to help you catch up, keep up, and get ahead in any area of your life.

    We know that one of the most effective ways to learn something new is by being active and not passive, and taking notes is one strategy to help you with that. But not all note-taking methods are designed to enhance your memory. Listen in as I go into detail on one of the best ways to take notes so you can recall and apply new information faster and more effectively.

  • How can you use movement to activate your brain for greater mental strength, energy, flexibility, and clarity?

    One of the best ways to enhance learning is by disrupting the monotonous drag of long study sessions and rote memorization. Moving your body is one way to help enhance focus and give your brain an extra energy burst. But what if there were specific movements you could utilize to unlock your full learning potential and give you even better results?

    I'm thrilled to have Anat Baniel on our show today to discuss this topic.

    She's here to talk about why movement is the brain's language and how to utilize movement as a mechanism to empower learning and create possibilities in your life.

    You've heard me say it before: as the body moves, the brain grooves. But it isn't about movement alone. Listen in as Anat explains the essentials of movement that will help align your body and brain to improve your learning and your life.

  • How do you go from feeling broken to becoming unbreakable?

    While almost everyone has struggled with mental health at some point in their lives, emotional and mental pain can sometimes be harder to talk about than physical pain. But what if having the right words could turn fear, anxiety, and depression into motivation and power to achieve your goals?
