The question I'm asked most frequently is how to build more SELF CONFIDENCE.  People recognize that this tool, above all others, is ESSENTIAL FOR SUCCESS in all parts of your life.This week's guest, LISA BILYEU, is a self-confidence expert, and she's got a lot of valuable tips and strategies on how to build this CRITICAL MINDSET into your own life.

Instead of hiding, Lisa details how she CONSCIOUSLY chose to develop a STRONG SENSE OF SELF that changed her life forever. That radical transformation led to a complete overhaul of how she approached those challenges. In fact, changing her mindset was one of the driving forces that she and her husband used to grow Quest Nutrition by 57,000% in 3 years, ranking it as INC. Magazine’s #2 Fasting Growing Company in North America in 2014. Lisa reveals several practical strategies you’ll want to hear.One of those is "KILLING THE SQUIRREL," a metaphor for doing away with distractions in your life. She also explains why using GRATITUDE the wrong way can be a dangerous pitfall in your life.I've often said the toughest battles are the ones you fight between your ears which is why Lisa's story about battling the MEAN GIRL VOICES in her head resonated with me, just like they will for you.Lisa also talks about the importance of pushing forward and doing your best by focusing more on HOW YOU DO THINGS instead of worrying about the outcome. Stripping away that need for VALIDATION is one of Lisa's primary keys to RADICAL CONFIDENCE and a lesson you'll want to hear.The bottom line is that Lisa preaches a pragmatic brand of COMMON-SENSE THINKING.If you're looking for EFFECTIVE SELF-CONFIDENCE STRATEGIES that will not only make you THINK but that you can put into ACTION, my interview with Lisa Bilyeu an hour well spent.

How often are you exhausted by being busy all the time, but not ever feeling very productive?  Do you get frustrated that you’re not closer to living the life you dreamed of?If so, get ready to download some KNOWLEDGE that’s going to CHANGE how you live. One of the ways your brain is REMARKABLE is that it is always searching for ways to conserve energy by being more EFFICIENT.  And one of the most important ways it does this is by steering you toward what you already know.And what you already know are your HABITS.The science behind HABITS and PRODUCTIVITY is a fascinating topic.  Once you understand how habits are formed, you can apply this knowledge to your life and create MASSIVE POSITIVE CHANGES.This week, I’m excited to discuss exactly how you can do that with one of the TOP EXPERTS in this field.  CHARLES DUHIGG is a Pulitzer-prize-winning reporter and the author of “Smarter Faster Better,” about the science of productivity, and “The Power of Habit,” about the science of habit formation in our lives, companies, and societies.  He’s also a veteran journalist who has written for the New York Times, The New Yorker Magazine and is a frequent contributor the shows such as This American Life, N.P.R., The Newshour with Jim Lehrer, and Frontline.He’s spent years studying the NEUROLOGICAL UNDERPINNINGS of habits and productivity, looking closely at HOW HABITS ARE FORMED, the importance of CUES, the psychology of NEAR MISSES (Hint: pay close attention to what Charles has to say about gambling in Las Vegas), and why it’s important to create and enjoy REWARDS when you engage in positive habits.If you’re a business owner, top executive, or leader of any kind, you’ll want to hear Charles’s take on how KEYSTONE HABITS can change an organization.  As you can already figure out, the right organizational habits can not only lead to huge increases in positive work culture and your BOTTOM LINE, but they can often spell the difference between whether a business ultimately succeeds or fails as well.In practical terms, Charles will also tell you HOW TO CREATE NEW HABITS, engage in the practice of DIRECTED FOCUS, and why STARTING SMALL is one of the keys to making sure new habits stay locked in.If you’re concerned about efficiency in your life (as you should be!), Charles Duhigg is going to teach you how to SAVE TIME AND MONEY, be more PRODUCTIVE, and GAIN CONTROL so you can lead a HAPPIER and more BLISSFUL life.And that’s a HABIT we should all strive for…

Become An Everyday Hero w/ Robin Sharma
Does it feel to you that there aren’t enough HEROES in the world today? At times, it seems like many of us have lost our way.  We’ve become so burdened by the size and number of problems in our own lives and in the rest of the world that we’re overwhelmed on how to move forward.  We feel victimized and WE WANT HELP.   We’re looking for heroes and role models to ENERGIZE us and give us the COURAGE and MENTAL TOUGHNESS we need to fight our best fight. But what if I told you the HERO you need is already INSIDE OF YOU? I’m truly thrilled to share with you one of the more special and remarkable conversations I’ve ever had on the show ,with my guest Robin Sharma  Many of you may already know about Robin through his work over the past 25 years.  He’s a globally renowned LEADERSHIP EXPERT who has sold 20 MILLION BOOKS in more than 90 COUNTRIES, including his latest effort, THE EVERYDAY HERO MANIFESTO.   His client roster reads like a Who’s Who of BLUE CHIP organizations that include Microsoft, Nike, Unilever, General Electric, FedEx, HP, Starbucks, Oracle, Yale, NASA, and many others.  Robin is also a deeply passionate HUMANITARIAN, helping children in need live happier, healthier lives through The Robin Sharma Foundation for Children. As Robin points out, the world needs EVERYDAY HEROES, just like you.  But before you can transform into the hero you were meant to be, you’ve got to make sure your HEART, MIND, HEALTH, AND SPIRITUALITY are in sync and ready to work on your behalf to complete your PERSONAL HEROISM EQUATION. Once you’ve achieved this, there are victim-to-hero leaps--such as dealing with your SUPPRESSED EMOTIONS--you must make that will help lead you to your own heroism. Robin and I get into how to deal with your EGO and TRAUMA as part of this process and why connecting with your MORTALITY is critical to your heroic journey.  It’s one of many obstacles Robin reveals that can rob you of your PEACE if you’re not fully prepared to deal with them. We also talk about the importance of MENTORS and how their INFLUENCE as heroes can make all the difference is other people’s lives.  You’ll want to hear what Steve Wozniak, Robin’s 5th grade teacher, and his father have in common and how they made a huge impact on Robin’s life.    Robin is also going to give you a big dose of how to think differently about WEALTH.  You’re going to reflect long and hard about how you measure wealth after you hear Robin’s thoughts on the EIGHT FORMS OF WEALTH.   If you want to become a hero, you must also learn how to overcome your FEARS.   Robin calls this HUGGING YOUR MONSTERS, and it’s a fitting way to end a REMARKABLE and REVEALING road map on how you can take steps to become an EVERYDAY HERO.

Influence: Your Greatest Super Power w/ Zoe Chance
I am a BIG BELIEVER in SUPERPOWERS.   INFLUENCE is at the top of my list  Superpowers are your small set of unique SKILLS, TALENTS, AND ABILITIES that give you a natural advantage you can tap into to lead your best life. WHAT WOULD IT TAKE to get you to LISTEN to somebody who could introduce you to another superpower that would make your life even better? What would it take for you to LEARN a superpower that could be a VALUABLE ADDITION to your life you could use several times every day? Would you be interested? Of course, you would! So, as you can imagine, when I heard about ZOE CHANCE, and that she had written a book called “INFLUENCE IS YOUR SUPERPOWER: THE SCIENCE OF WINNING HEARTS, SPARKING CHANGE, AND MAKING GOOD THINGS HAPPEN” I was excited to invite her on as this week’s guest. Zoe is a writer, teacher, researcher, climate philanthropist, and obsessed with the topic of INTERPERSONAL INFLUENCE.  She earned her doctorate from HARVARD and now as a behavioral scientist, she teaches “Mastering Influence and Persuasion,” the most popular course at YALE School of Management.  Her framework for behavior change is the foundation for GOOGLE’S global food policy that helps 70,000 people make healthier choices every day.   And, before focusing on academic pursuits, she also managed a $200 million segment of the Barbie brand for Mattel Toys. Here’s why what she has to say should matter to you… Zoe teaches smart, kind people to use what they learn to RAISE MONEY for charity, GET ELECTED to political office, FUND startups, START movements, SAVE LIVES, FIND LOVE, and NEGOTIATE great deals and job offers. In other words, she teaches people to use the SUPERPOWER OF INFLUENCE as a POSITIVE FORCE for good in the world. We cover a lot of ground in this week’s podcast, digging into topics such as… How to CHANGE BEHAVIORS, not minds. What being CHARISMATIC really means. MISCONCEPTIONS about being influential. What is BEHAVIORAL ECONOMICS. How Zoe’s time at Mattel Toys impacted her work. How the left and right spheres of our BRAINS react to influence. Dealing with “No!” and why rejection is important to your growth. And last but not least, the MAGIC QUESTION to ask if you want to be more influential. Influence can be a mighty superpower when you learn to use it the right way. And Zoe Chance is the person you need to listen to if you’re ready to continue that journey.

Build Unbreakable Mental Health w/ Jay Glazer
This week, we’re going to talk a lot about an important subject that demands much more attention in times like these.   That subject is Mental health and depression They are definitely varying degrees of the spectrum of depression.   And if you’ve ever suffered from it, or know someone who has, you know just how misunderstood and difficult that MENTAL HEALTH JOURNEY is. My guest, JAY GLAZER, has been a fixture on Fox Network National Football League broadcasts for almost two decades now.  He’s also appeared on several TV shows, including HBO’s Ballers, The League on FX and as an announcer for UFC and Bellator broadcasts. He’s also been very public about his overwhelming battles with anxiety and depression, SHARING HIS STRUGGLES OF “LIVING IN THE GRAY” for all the world to see. I wanted to share his story with you because instead of letting painful depression consume him, JAY FOUGHT BACK.   He crawled out from underneath those dark shadows and CHANNELED HIS ENERGY into productive and positive projects, including opening the Unbreakable Performance Center in West Hollywood a few years ago.It has become a training home to many ELITE ATHLETES AND PERFORMERS including Sylvester Stallone, Michael Strahan, Chuck Liddell, Wiz Khalifa, Chris Pratt, Demi Lovato, and many others.  An offshoot of that, Jay has also trained more than 1,000 NFL players in mixed martial arts during their off-seasons. But his most IMPORTANT LIFE’S WORK was the creation of a non-profit called MVP, MERGING VETS & PLAYERS, which matches former combat veterans and former pro athletes to help each other through the difficult transition into their new lives away from the battlefields and playing fields.   While Jay goes into detail about his heavy battles with depression, he also gives you UNBREAKABLE MINDSET STRATEGIES he used to fight that battle that you can apply in your life as well. I know there are many of you out there struggling with depression on your own, afraid or unable to reach out because you’re wallowing in mental quicksand. You’d be surprised at how many stories I hear that are just like that. If you’re one of those people or know somebody fighting that battle right now, listen to Jay’s story and how he’s BEAT THOSE DEMONS. There are people who care about you, and by listening to this week’s podcast, I hope you’ll realize that YOU ARE LOVED and you are WORTHY of getting the help you need.

Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at HARVARD MEDICAL SCHOOL where he has been teaching aging biology and translational medicine for aging for the past 16 years.  More than that, he is also a foremost researcher best known for his work on UNDERSTANDING WHY WE AGE and HOW TO SLOW ITS EFFECTS.  Contemporary BLEEDING EDGE RESEARCH and scientific advancements have propelled us forward and not only UNLOCKED SECRETS TO LONGEVITY but have also created new questions and curiosities that continue to excite our BEST AND BRIGHTEST MINDS.  And few people on planet earth are as well versed or as educated on this subject as Dr. Sinclair. He lives in a world filled with deep examinations of hormesis, sirtuins, energy metabolism, biosynthesis, mTOR levels, reprogramming genes, mitochondria, learning and memory, time-restricted feeding and caloric restrictions, neurodegeneration, and cancer.   While many of you may AWESTRUCK by this area of science, you should also be EXCITED by Dr. Sinclair’s research, because one day it will have a DIRECT IMPACT on you. This week, we’re going to translate what that research means to you in practical terms…and it’s coming sooner than you think! Dr. Sinclair covers a wide range of topics from red light therapy, to the effects of glucose on our bodies, hormone replacement, and the importance of being physically active, fasting, and not eating meat. We also touch on ALTERING DNA which holds the possibility of significantly extending life, and CURING HORRIFIC DISEASES like cancer, MS, Alzheimer’s, Parkinsons, and many others.Our discussion isn’t just about theories and research though. Dr. Sinclair has also got some HANDS-ON TIPS on what you can do to start to start feeling and looking younger right now. So, sit back, relax, and LEARN.   CLASS IS ABOUT TO BEGIN, and I guarantee, you won’t want to miss it.

Strategies To Achieve Peace w/ Trent Shelton
Today, more than ever, PEACE is elusive for many people. We need to have more discussions about PROTECTING YOUR INNER PEACE so that you can CONTRIBUTE part of that peace to the rest of the world. That’s why this week’s guest, TRENT SHELTON, has a lot of things you’ll want to hear.  It’s rare that I ask people back on my show but Trent is one of those people you can LISTEN to and LEARN from over and over again. Trent is a former Baylor University wide receiver who also played for the Seattle Seahawks, Indianapolis Colts, and the Washington Redskins.  He built quite a following with a series of two-minute videos to track his efforts of seeking a better life which eventually led to him founding the Christian-based non-profit organization, REHAB TIME.  Growing up as a preacher’s son, Trent is well-rounded in SCRIPTURE and often draws on those experiences in his speaking engagements, podcasts, philanthropy, and other outreach projects  While football was his PASSION early in life, helping others has turned out to be his LIFE’S CALLING. Much of our chat is about combining inner peace and marrying it to YOUR CALLING.  So many people are still searching for those ANSWERS, and Trent is going to give you a lot to THINK about to help you bring clarity to your FUTURE. A big part of this is learning how to PROTECT YOUR PEACE.  And as Trent explains, the way you do that is by paying attention to and maximizing your AUTOMATIC and PURPOSEFUL minutes and REMOVING TOXIC PEOPLE from your life. Trent and I also get into how you can change your way of thinking when you can’t change your situation.  As you’ll also hear, PERSPECTIVE IS EVERYTHING. Both of us have also seen many people suffering from DEPRESSION.  If that’s not you, chances are you may know someone who is depressed.  One of the most important things you’ll want to TAKE NOTES on is how to overcome depression and what red flags to look for before those feelings overwhelm you or someone you know. UNDERSTAND THIS. Trent and I both believe you can have more peace in your life.  You can find it by sharpening your purpose, practicing more GRATITUDE, and being MINDFUL of the things you need to do. Finding peace starts with the INNER YOU. When you achieve that state of mind, all other things become possible.

The Dirty Truth About Passion w/ Mike Rowe
Should you chase your PASSION or should you SOLVE a PROBLEM? Fill a NEED? Are you ready for the REAL DIRT with one of the SMARTEST and MOST PRACTICAL thinkers today about work in America? MIKE ROWE has been slogging it out in trenches, coal mines, sewers, and garbage dumps for a long time now as the host of DIRTY JOBS. There’s a RUGGED, DOWN-TO-EARTH and TRUSTWORTHY quality about Mike.  Coupled with the fact he can take any dirty job, tell a great story, add some humor, and hook you from the start, makes him one of the more unusual and compelling people in television for the past several years.   A self-described chronic freelancer, Mike has worked in more than 350 JOBS on his hit show.  But he’s also an in-demand Fortune 500 speaker, podcaster, executive producer, and author as well as a vocal advocate and CEO of the mikeroweWORKS Foundation that debunks myths and promotes the value of skilled trades in the workforce. Mike’s got some CAPTIVATING STORIES and SAGE ADVICE about THE NATURE OF WORK you’re going to want to hear.  Mike redefines why and how PASSION should be a part of what you do but probably not in a way you’ve thought of before. He has a great take on the value of HARD WORK and MASTERING SKILLS that leads you to a path to success, whether you work with your HANDS, your HEAD, or some combination of both. There’s also a big disconnect going on right now about the nature of EDUCATION and matching it up with meaningful work. Mike talks a lot about changing how we should REFRAME our thinking about both areas, and why we should always approach our work with a sense of HUMILITY AND CURIOSITY.  You, your children, and pretty much everyone you know are going to spend the better part of your lives working.  Doesn’t it make sense that you should give a lot of THOUGHT about what it’s going to take to be HAPPY and SUCCESSFUL in whatever you choose to do? This week’s show with Mike Rowe will start that important conversation you need to have with yourself. This one is really gonna get you thinking!
