A few weeks ago, I recorded an episode of the podcast called “Freedom From Your Emotional Pain.” You can find it at if you haven’t listened to it yet. Within that episode, I shared the following quote: "Consider that every painful emotion you have ever experienced has been self-created by resisting your reality. It's never the thing we think we're upset about that's actually upsetting us. It is our resistance. When you accept reality exactly as it is, you are at peace.” This turned out to be one of the most shared episodes of the podcast I’ve had in a long time, and in addition to...

What if you could make one decision, and that decision would automate nearly every decision you’ll ever make again? Today we’re going to talk about exactly that. Many years ago, I unconsciously made a decision. I established a set of core values and guiding principles, and in doing so, it became the ultimate decision-making engine that predetermined every other decision for myself. It enabled me to know who I would be and how I would respond to any challenge or opportunity. In today’s episode, I’m giving you a simple process that will make your life easier, improve your...

Do you dream of a bigger and better future? Have you ever been told to ‘get your head out of the clouds’ and ‘be more realistic’? Well, you’re not crazy, and you’re not alone. Every product, innovation social movement and major change in the world started off as one person’s dream – and they were called ‘crazy’ until they made their dream come true… and then they were called a ‘genius.’ The other day I was watching the brand new documentary, Dreamer created by Giovanni Marsico (which you can watch for free at DreamerDocumentary.com), and I absolutely loved it! It was...

The other day, I posted the following quote on social media: "Consider that every painful emotion you have ever experienced has been self-created by resisting your reality. It's never the thing we think we're upset about that's actually upsetting us. It is our resistance. When you accept reality exactly as it is, you are at peace.” To this, I added, “When you accept reality exactly as it is, there is no pain, only peace. Instead of resisting reality, accept it unconditionally, giving yourself the gift of inner peace, and from that place of unconditional peace, you can choose to experience...

For today’s podcast episode, I want to explore what enables certain people to move through life’s challenges so much more easily and effectively than others, and give you three (3) steps to develop your ability to do the same. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the primary focus of what I’ve been talking with you about is the one thing that you have control over: your inner world (your thinking, your emotional well-being, and ultimately your internal quality of life). I know that for many of us, it may feel like that’s easier said than done, and it can feel like the pain, frustration,...

Do you ever have that experience where you’re reading a book and find yourself nodding your head and thinking, “Yes!” because you agree and resonate so deeply with what the author is saying? That happened with me over and over again when I read The Untethered Soul and its follow up, The Surrender Experiment, by Michael Singer. They quickly became two of my favorite books of all time, and there are millions of people who would say the same things about his work. Today, I’m going to read one of my favorite chapters from The Untethered Soul to you: “The Path of Unconditional...

Have you ever taken a personality assessment? You know, the Myers-Briggs, DISC, or Enneagram tests that are supposed to tell us about who we are and fit us neatly into a predetermined category?

Well, today’s guest, Dr. Benjamin Hardy, has a very different take on personality testing. In his new book, Personality Isn’t Permanent, he explores why these tests go against science and psychology, shape your identity in dangerous ways, and prevent us from living up to our true potential.

Today, Dr. Hardy joins the podcast to talk about the danger of accepting labels from others, why it’s time to do away with outdated personality tests, and how to stop living in the past and set a foundation for a hopeful future.
