This is going to be DIFFICULT for some of you to hear. And that’s all the more reason to LISTEN.Nearly 800,000 people die by suicide in the world EVERY year… and the number continues to rise.That means 800k+ of families and friends are impacted and left wondering, “WHY?”Odds are, you or someone you love has been impacted by suicide. And so I am URGING you to SHARE this week’s episode with as many people as you can.My guest, KEVIN HINES, knows more about suicide than most.‌He tried to end his life by jumping off the GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE when he was only 19 years old.A jump like that kills virtually everybody who attempts it.  But miraculously, Kevin survived.  And today, YOU’LL GET TO HEAR HIS TRUTH.Kevin’s story and his message will SAVE LIVES and this may be THE MOST meaningful discussions I’ve ever had.

“DID I LIVE?” “DID I LOVE?” “DID I MATTER?”Those are the questions BRENDON BURCHARD asked himself after surviving a horrific car accident when he was 19.  He has spent the last 26 years searching for those ANSWERS.  Those are also a few of the questions we’ll try to answer on this week’s show.  Brendon’s been on before, and so many of you made it one of the most watched episodes ever that I knew it was only a matter of time before I had to have him back.  Since the accident, Brendon has become a 3-time New York Times best-selling author and a thriving online teaching pioneer with videos that have racked up 400 MILLION VIEWS and earned hundreds of well-deserved accolades.To CHANGE means to GROW!In this episode we’re going to dive deep into the NATURE OF CHANGE and how factors like AMBITION, DESIRE, NECESSITY, and ESTEEM can drive YOU to change… or not.  He reveals the single GREATEST integrated personal development environment I’ve ever seen…AND no conversation with Brendon would be complete unless we talk about HIGH PERFORMANCE HABITS and EFFORTS OF IMPACT.  It’s GREAT WISDOM…simply great wisdom.Here’s a huge takeaway from this week’s episode.The QUALITY OF THE QUESTIONS we ask ourselves determines the quality of the LIFE we end up living.Start by seeking answers to the questions Brendon asks, and then KEEP ASKING other questions that matter most to you.
Remember who you are. Remember that you survived 100% of your worst days because you’re still here…”This week, my guest, CANDY VALENTINO, and I will talk about a subject near and dear to everyone’s heart.That subject is MONEY.How to MAKE IT. How to KEEP IT.The kind of MINDSET you’ll need.And whether the accumulation of wealth is WORTH IT or not.I want you to hear Candy’s story because she started out like most people…with little more than GRIT, DETERMINATION, and unwavering CONFIDENCE.Candy is the REAL DEAL. She’s been successfully building businesses since she was 19. And doing so with NO DEGREE, NO CORPORATE BACKGROUND, NO MONEY, and NO INTERNET ACCESS! Since then, she’s built and sold businesses in service, retail, e-commerce, and product manufacturing, creating a vast real estate portfolio as a flipper and investor.Pay close attention because in the hour we spend together, you will get a TACTICAL MASTER CLASS in creating wealth and using it for GOOD CAUSES from a woman who has become an important author, investor, philanthropist, and more.Much of what we talk about is how to position yourself mentally for financial success. You’re going to hear why Candy advocates for thinking of yourself as a business owner instead of being self-employed.That leads us to the psychology behind LIVING BELOW YOUR MEANS, why RELATIONSHIPS are critical and need to be nurtured as much as possible, GOOD DEBT vs. BAD DEBT, INVESTING LEVERAGE, and why SIDE HUSTLES should be an essential part of your success formula.Many of you also wonder if PLAYING THE LONG GAME and all the SACRIFICE is worth it. It’s no secret I think that’s the case. You’ll want to hear Candy, and I discuss what that sacrifice means, the problems money solves, and more importantly, the problems money does not solve.You rarely get an insider’s education like this, and the best part is the only cost to you is to PAY ATTENTIONIt’s an INVESTMENT you won’t regret.
“The greatest piece of who we are is our vulnerability…our open-heartedness is our genius…”LEANN RIMES is an American treasure and one of my all-time favorite recording artists.I am so excited to welcome her to my show this week for an incredibly deep conversation about life, emotions, mental health, God and much much more.This conversation will MOVE you and when I say it’s DEEP, I mean it . We are both very open and vulnerable in this conversation and it won’t soon be forgotten.Trust me, we are both incredibly open in ways maybe neither one of us have been beforeLeAnn is REMARKABLE in her CREATIVITY, TALENT, and PERSEVERANCE.Think about this as you listen.That’s not to say it has always been easy for LeAnn, because it hasn’t.She makes no secret of her love of GOD and the role how PRESENCE has played in her life. You’re going to hear what that presence means and the important role this plays in her singing.That FAITH has also been instrumental in guiding her career and her personal life.LeAnn is going to tell you how she handles ANXIETY, being PLUGGED IN all the time, and finding ways to take good care of herself through it all.  We’re also going to dig into why it’s dangerous to TIE YOUR IDENTITY TO EXTERNAL ACHIEVEMENTS and how LeAnn’s thinking about that has evolved over time.Like any highly creative person, she’s also prone to CREATIVE HIGHS and the crashes that often come after. Those ups and downs are real, not only for her but for everyone. You’ll want to hear how she manages those types of emotions so you can use that wisdom in your own life.We’re going to close with two things LeAnn knows a lot about…Working on getting LOVE from other people…And advice for making your DREAMS come true.I think she’s well “VERSED” to talk about these things, and after you hear her, you’ll think so too. 
“There is a fine line between Anxiety and Excitement“This interview will rock you.How is it that some people can tell a story in a way that not only holds your ATTENTION but that makes you LAUGH uncontrollably?If anyone has the answers, it’s DANE COOK.Because DANE has been doing just that for more than 30 years now through his albums, television appearances and specials, as an actor, and especially as a prolific stand-up comedian.This week, we’re going to pull back that curtain, and Dane is going to reveal his PERSONAL JOURNEY and tell you things you’d never thought you would hear from one of America’s funniest men.One of Dane’s greatest strengths is as a storyteller, and in my opinion, he’s one of the most COMPELLING STORYTELLERS I’ve ever heard.  It’s one thing to tell jokes that get a reaction, but quite another to go deep about some part of the human condition and connect with people on a completely different level.The best comedy also rises from PAIN AND ADVERSITY.  Dane is no stranger to that either, dealing with a half-brother who defrauded him for almost everything he had.  And that only scratches the surface of the hardships that Dane has been through.In fact, so many things piled up in his life that, at one point, Dane almost quit the business.  You need to hear how he used that time and those experiences to RETHINK his life and REDEFINE his expectations going forward.Great comedians like Dane also carry around a certain amount of ANXIETY as well.  In fact, the fine line between anxiety and EXCITEMENT is where they find the best and most relatable material.We’re also going to talk about the public side of Dane as well.  He’s got a lot to say about building a social media brand (he’s an original and one of the best) and how he deals with CRITICISM and HATE.  Listen to Dane’s take on the fine line between locking out those haters and taking in enough so that you can REFLECT and INTERPRET things is gem-mint thinking.  We’re also going to talk about the right and wrong ways of TYING IDENTITY TO SUCCESS.You’re going to love a GREAT INTERVIEW with the GREAT DANE this week.  It’s not what you’d expect, and that’s no joke…
Are you ready for a history lesson that has more meaning than ever today?This week you’ll learn about a PHILOSOPHY that originated more than 2000 years ago and flourished during the Roman and Greek empires.  I’ve invited RYAN HOLIDAY for a fascinating discussion about STOICISM.  He is one of the foremost experts on this way of thinking that teaches ETHICS, VIRTUE, SELF-CONTROL, and FORTITUDE as a way of overcoming destructive emotions.What you’re about to hear will blow your mind and open you up to IDEAS you’ve never heard before. Ryan has been studying stoicism all his adult life. He is going to give you straight answers to the questions…Why is it that nobody has more pain than the LAZY?What makes COURAGE, SELF-DISCIPLINE, JUSTICE, and WISDOM so important to stoicism?What makes AMBITION a double-edged sword and PERFECTIONISM a vice?Stoicism is also predicated on finding an optimal relationship with DISCOMFORT.  Ryan will help you FRAME YOUR THINKING to succeed the best way possible by taking on tough challenges.  Part of that also relates to how you structure your MORNING ROUTINES which are critical to how successful the rest of your day is.We’re also going to get into an extended discussion of DISCIPLINE VS. TEMPTATION.  If you want to get anywhere in life, you’ve got to cultivate discipline.  Part of that also involves how you deal with losing control over your EMOTIONS and why SILENCE is often an essential form of STRENGTH.Although STOICISM dates back more than two millennia, the ideas are timeless, and I think the principles Ryan espouses may be a perfect way forward in a world that feels like it has frequently lost its way.Open your mind, listen, and I think at the end of the hour, you’ll agree… 
This week is a fascinating show about FRIENDSHIP.This one is so so IMPORTANT.I’ll be HONEST with you…one of the people this week’s show may HELP the most is me!As I’ve mentioned many times before, although I put myself out there all the time, deep inside, I’m still very much an INTROVERT.  I’ve always felt I could do better in smoothing out the AWKWARD MOMENTS, and I feel sometimes when connecting with people.  I know a lot of you are the same way.  That’s why I’m fascinated by DR. MARISA FRANCO, who has spent years studying FRIENDSHIP in incredible detail.There’s so much good stuff to unpack this week…FRIENDSHIPS TAKE WORK, and even people who make friends easily can make regrettable mistakes.  No matter who you are, listen to what Dr. Franco has to say about CHARACTERISTICS of what makes a great friendship, then ask yourself how many of those boxes you check.If you don’t check enough of them, you may find people you thought were your friends starting to GHOST YOU, which Dr. Franco also gets into.We’re also going to talk about the PHYSICAL NEED FOR FRIENDS as well.  You may not realize it, but friendship has a lot more benefits than simply improving your EMOTIONAL health.  This is part of Dr. Franco’s larger overall look at the science of friendships and how they affect your work, sense of self, and many other parts of who you are.Want to know how to make friends as an ADULT?How to be friends with people you DISAGREE with?Or how SELF-LOVE affects friendships?And one of my favorite parts of this week’s show…How can you deal with “value-based” friends versus adding authentic friendships to your life?  My FRIENDLY ADVICE to you this week is to pay close attention to Dr. Franco’s wisdom on a subject that we sometimes take for granted.And let me leave you with this… PROVERBS 27 says, in part, “Do not forsake your friend and the friend of your father, and do not go to your brother's house when disaster strikes you-- better a neighbor nearby than a brother far away.”

That AWARENESS OF SELF makes all things possible only when you make them the RIGHT STORIES.Some extreme challenges we look for, and others find us, like it or not.  After trying to jump a kerosine-soaked rope in Thailand, Colin burned his legs horribly and was told he might never walk again.

here are NO GUARANTEES in life.  There are only TRIUMPHS and SETBACKS.  My guest this week, RYAN SHAZIER, knows this all too well.  His story is EXTRAORDINARY.  In a single moment, he went from living his best life as an NFL linebacker to the challenge of simply trying to walk again.If you’ve ever had sudden and traumatic challenges turn your life upside down, you must hear Ryan’s story.  Because this week, you’re going to learn how one man turned a potential tragedy into a NEW BEGINNING.  Ryan was an Ohio State Buckeye who was a first-round draft pick at linebacker by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2014.  He quickly starred in the league, earning a trip to the PRO BOWL in 2016.  But during the 2017 season, he made a headfirst tackle that left him unable to move his legs.  Ryan underwent spinal stabilization surgery giving him the tools he needed to heal.His new book, WALKING MIRACLE, goes into detail about what he went through and was a must read for me as soon as I got a copy.Ryan spares no details in what he had to deal with after hearing news that he was paralyzed.  But along with his mom and dad, Ryan worked hard to create the POSITIVE MINDSET he would need to start healing.The GOOD NEWS is that surgery worked, and eventually Ryan did walk again.  In fact, 17 months after the injury he danced at his own wedding.But his NFL career was over.  His identity was stripped away.  And while he experienced the SUPREME TRIUMPH OF WALKING AGAIN, the setback of no longer playing the game he loved meant he had to pivot.  Ryan’s account of how he went from a pro athlete to a businessman is full of lessons you can use in your own life.  He’ll tell you how he was NEVER RESENTFUL and why that was so critical to MOVE FORWARD, instead of living in a past that no longer existed.  There are so many great nuggets of WISDOM in his words that you must hear, especially Ryan’s advice for making a COMEBACK after a traumatic life experience.Ryan Shazier embodies what it takes to OVERCOME tragic events in your life.His story will move you, and for those of you who need it, also help HEAL you too.

Great podcast, so many Takeaways! You had me until the very end... the blatant gender role stereotypes (women stay home and don't work, men are the providers) really turned me off. As a rich white male in America, I'd love to hear you be part of the solution Dean. 😉
