Fully Live Life with Happiness and Sorrow w/ Susan Cain
JUL 5, 2022
Fully Live Life with Happiness and Sorrow w/ Susan Cain
I think one of the hardest things to do in life is to connect with ALL OF OUR EMOTIONS. Many of us work hard to deny or block out what we perceive to be BAD emotions. What people don’t realize is that EVERY EMOTION serves a purpose, whether SADNESS and SUFFERING or JOY and BLISS. Emotions are often paired…UP AND DOWN are two sides of the same mental makeup. If you struggle and sometimes, you’re OVERWHELMED trying to deal with melancholy feelings or depression, pay close attention to what you’re about to hear. That’s because my guest this week, SUSAN CAIN, is an expert at understanding these intense negative feelings and learning how to better manage emotions, especially those that can undermine our happiness. She is the #1 bestselling author of “Bittersweet: How Sorrow and Longing Make Us Whole” and “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking” which has been translated into 40 LANGUAGES, spent EIGHT YEARS on The New York Times best-seller list, and was named the #1 best book of the year by Fast Company magazine. Susan’s TED TALKS have been viewed over 40 MILLION TIMES and LinkedIn named her the TOP 6th INFLUENCER IN THE WORLD, just behind Richard Branson and Melinda French Gates, among many other well-deserved accolades. Susan is going to teach you why you should embrace negative emotions and answer an important question of imagining what the world would be like with NO SUFFERING OR SADNESS. She’s also going to help you figure out why the way you MEET THE PAIN in your life defines who you are. We’re also going to explore the role of being MELANCHOLY in our lives and dig into the fine line between being melancholy and DEPRESSED. Those of you who are INTROVERTS (including me!) will be especially interested in what Susan has to say about connecting with others when you’re wired that way. This week is all about making PEACE with yourself. Once you understand how all emotions can best serve you, you’ll clear a lot of the mental junk out of your life so you can find BALANCE and HAPPINESS. And Susan Cain is absolutely the right person to help you do that.

Greatest Life Transformation Behind Bars w/ Damon West

Greatest Life Transformation Behind Bars w/ Damon West
This week's show is quite possibly the most incredible story I’ve ever heard. You are going to be riveted and you will never forget this conversation! 13 years ago to the day that we recorded this interview, my guest was sentenced to life in prison! Yes, life in prison for my guest Damon West. Damon’s story will make you uncomfortable at times. But ultimately, his story is all about OVERCOMING EXTREME ADVERSITY, TRANSFORMATION, and REDEMPTION. Do you want to learn how to turn your life around? This interview Is a master class! At 20, Damon was the starting quarterback at the University of North Texas when he suffered a career-ending injury. A few years later while training to be a stockbroker, Damon got hooked on methamphetamines, and he became the mastermind of a burglary ring to support his addiction. Eventually, he was arrested and sentenced to 65 years in a Texas maximum security prison. In prison, Damon got SOBER, went through a SPIRITUAL AWAKENING, and started down his true life’s calling which he continued to build on after his parole more than 7 years later. Today he is a much sought-after speaker and best-selling author including co-writing “The Coffee Bean: A Simple Lesson to Create Positive Change.” with JON GORDON. Damon pulls no punches in a series of brutally HONEST stories when sharing his life and the mistakes he’s made. You’ll hear first-hand exactly what it feels like to be found guilty of major crimes, how he fought to survive and eventually THRIVE in prison, and how Damon turned his time in prison into an OPPORTUNITY. Be sure to listen to how he used the analogy of being like a COFFEE BEAN (yes, a coffee bean) as a critical part in changing his victim mindset to one of HOPE and redemption. In one of my favorite parts of this episode, Damon reveals his thoughts about GRATITUDE, his mission to HELP OTHERS, and why RESILIENCE is essential to living your best life. This week, pay attention to a man who has lived life on the edge in many ways, good and bad. Damon’s past and present are filled with LESSONS that will make you STOP, THINK, and help you FIGURE OUT how you can lead a better life, too.

How Are You, Really? w/ Jenna Kutcher

How Are You, Really? w/ Jenna Kutcher
This week we talk about life. This episode is going to cause you to really evaluate what’s IMPORTANT to YOU, WHO and WHAT MATTERS and maybe a few of your priorities will shift. I invited one of my best friends into the studio for a wide-ranging talk about important parts of YOUR LIFE that you may not usually pay much attention to. Jenna is special, dispensing life advice through her enormously successful podcast, as an acclaimed author, educator, and thought leader. She’s got a new book out, HOW ARE YOU, REALLY? LIVING YOUR TRUTH ONE ANSWER AT A TIME, which is all about what it means to live a life that doesn’t just LOOK GOOD, it FEELS GOOD, too. For those of you who are feeling your life is off track now, Jenna is going to help you right your ship and get back to living your best life. It’s okay to be a HARD CHARGER, but as Jenna explains, never underestimate the need and the importance of REST. Rest is counter to what many success-driven people are programmed to do, but you need to find it or run the risk of crashing hard. Jenna also delves into why it’s important to know yourself better and what questions you need to ask to make that happen. Am I HAPPY? What does SUCCESS look like for me? Am I FAKING enjoying life? How CONFIDENT am I? We also get into SEASONS of your life and TIPPING POINT MOMENTS where what used to make you happy may not be the case as much anymore. We’re also going to ask you to think about BURN OUT. Are you a person who can function even when you’re burned out? What are you doing to RECHARGE your mind and body because sooner or later, burnout will catch up to you. Some of you also don’t have the best relationship with your bodies. Pay attention to what Jenna has to say about the relationship between your soul and your body. How many of you fear losing MOMENTUM? Jenna’s got some great insights if that’s one of the things you’re worried about, too. We also spend a lot of time talking about your VISION about what you want for your life. When was the last time you thought about... How do you block out DISTRACTIONS? How do you handle OTHER PEOPLE’S IDEAS about what you should do? Does your vision vibe with your VALUES and YOUR IDEA OF SUCCESS? And most important, when was the last time you CHECKED IN WITH YOUR VISION and asked HOW SHOULD IT FEEL? So many BIG QUESTIONS to think about this week! Don’t just listen to what Jenna has to say. Absorb it. Process it. And then take the actions you need to give a great answer when somebody asks you, “How are you, really?”

From Waiting Tables To Influencing Billions w/ Tank Sinatra

From Waiting Tables To Influencing Billions w/ Tank Sinatra
I’ve made some of you cry in recent weeks. This week, my goal is to make all of you LAUGH and really help you LEARN. Wanna truly know how to GROW your social media? Like really? Or maybe you really wanna know how to get from where you are to where you DREAM of going? What is a real strategy and the real thoughts of somebody who transforms their life? Whether you wanna transform your life or explode your social media I have a full-blown expert this week. And you’re gonna laugh your ass off. My guest is TANK SINATRA, aka George Resch, and he’s been lighting up Instagram for the past few years with a sharp-witted combination of the best of the best memes he finds online and a good dose of his own commentary and original content. Tank is the self-described Michael Jordan of memes (who has more than 11 MILLION FOLLOWERS on his various platforms, banking 4 BILLION IMPRESSIONS A YEAR and making him the #1 MEME CREATOR in the history of social media! On the surface, Tank just THINKS FUNNY. It’s not what he does, it’s who he is. But as you’ll find out, a lot is going on underneath the surface of a guy who is 20 YEARS SOBER and leads an otherwise normal life in a New York City suburb with three kids, a great wife, and a day job he loves. Tank’s life hasn’t always been FUN AND MEMES. He’s forever been drawn to the funny parts of life but started out waiting tables and tried a lot of funny stuff (and failed) before he found his place and Tank Sinatra was born. Tank freely shares some of the reasons he’s been so successful and the unique nature of how the online world works. We also get into HIGHLIGHTING HAPPINESS. Many people equate money with happiness, but TANK keeps it real, with advice so SIMPLE and spot-on that you may have overlooked it in your life before now. Here’s a hint…it’s an inside job, and I can tell you this…HAPPINESS IS THE NEW RICH. Then we get into a new game you’re gonna want to play…Tank and his partner created INFLUENCERS IN THE WILD. The premise will BLOW YOU AWAY. Instead of playing the game and racking up money for the win, you travel around the world and add influencers. I’ll let Tank explain more, but suffice to say, this game is HILARIOUS. You’re also going to get a hefty dose of Tank’s take on SELF-ESTEEM and SELF-AWARENESS. Pay attention to what we talk about because a lot of people really need to work on these parts of their lives. We wrap things up with Tank offering wise advice by POLLUTING YOUR BRAIN WITH POSITIVITY as a way to overcome the constant bombardment of negativity that we all deal with every day. Thanks to Tank! And have a HAPPY DAY. Hope we made you laugh this week… You’ve EARNED it. And you DESERVE it.
