The World’s Greatest Athlete: Katrín Davíðsdóttir

12/17/2018
More
Some people may be smarter than you. They may have more resources at their disposal. They might even have more natural talent. But the one thing you can do is WORK HARD. You can only control a certain number of factors. As long as you focus on those, you will become the best version of yourself. When you get to the end, you need to know that you did everything you could to accomplish your goal. On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk with an athlete who works tirelessly to be...

The Power of Erotic Intelligence with Esther Perel

12/14/2018
More
Let’s talk about sex. So often, we blame our lack of romance on our partner. We’ll say, “He or she just isn’t doing it for me anymore.” But what if it’s your responsibility to make sure that you’re keeping the passion alive? If you are truly living your fullest life, you will create desire. Take ownership. That’s why, for this week’s Five Minute Friday, I want to share this conversation I had with world-renowned relationship expert Esther Perel who knows the key to making monogamous...

Mindset of Becoming World Champion with Sasha Digiulian

12/12/2018
More
Are you governed by fear? If so, it’s time to figure out if what you’re scared of is real or imaginary. What if there really isn’t anything to be afraid of? You might have some setbacks or “fall,” but at the end of the day, you’ll be fine. In the face of stress, you can get overwhelmed by negative emotions, or you can look forward. You can instead focus on the task ahead. It’s all about your mindset. On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about fear with a champion climber who...

Love, Intimacy, and Relationships with Stephan Speaks

12/10/2018
More
We all want connection. We all want an amazing, sexy, supportive romantic relationship. So why is it so hard to find the person who can fill that position? Most often, it’s not other people that are the problem- it’s ourselves. We have so much hurt from our past that we haven’t worked through that keeps us from experience true connection with someone else. Hurt people hurt people. On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I discuss what is keeping people from accepting love and why...

Investing In Your Future

12/7/2018
More
You know how people always say, “There’s power in your peer group?” That’s only half the story. Sometimes you have to buy your way into growth. There are plenty of successful people who want to help you. You just have to create an environment where they can. Sometimes, you have to pay for the knowledge and connections of the leaders in your field. It’s the same way you set yourself up for success with fitness, with education, and with goal-setting: you invest in learning. For this Five...

The Power of Masterminds

12/5/2018
More
Are you taking advantage of the knowledge of the smartest people in your field? If not, you are denying yourself an abundance of information. You need consistent accountability at the highest level. You need inspiration from inspiring peers. And you need to be a part of something that is coaching you to play bigger. Some might call it an accountability group. In the business industry, we call these groups “Masterminds.” It’s a dynamic that you miss out on when you only do one-on-one...

Business Growth and Raising Money with Matt Higgins

12/3/2018
More
So often we are afraid to go all in. Whether it’s in a relationship, in business, or in an investment, the fear of failure keeps us from fully committing. What a mistake. I’ve had to learn to love failure. I have to consciously tell my brain, “You’re going to fail. And it’s going to be ok.” Take the leap. Make the commitment. Dare to take a stand. If we’re not failing, we are staying too safe. And you won’t grow unless you are constantly making yourself uncomfortable. On today’s episode of...

Believing in Yourself

11/30/2018
More
The more you say things, the more you believe them. You have to tell yourself you will succeed. Write it down every day. Say it looking in the mirror. People may look at you like you’re crazy. But the more you say it, the more they’ll start to believe it, too. You will not get to where you want to go if you don’t believe in yourself. That’s why, for this Five Minute Friday, I’m sharing a conversation I had with Logan Paul whose strong belief in himself started in high school. Logan Paul has...

How to Transform Your Life with Shaun T

11/28/2018
More
It’s that time a year where a lot of us commit to making changes in our lives. But sticking with resolutions is hard. Very few of us are consistently committed to ourselves. It is not easy. We have to think of new habits like a roller coaster. We’re building momentum to making the change. But then the roller coaster goes down. The dip is normal. When you’re feeling low, you have to know that you will climb back up. You have the forward motion to make it happen. To talk about this journey of...

Do What You Love with Mike Holston: The Real Tarzann

11/26/2018
More
Do you go the easy route? The expected route? Or do you find your own path that compliments your unique passions? Finding your own way takes inner strength. You won’t be able to do it without believing in yourself. It takes a special person to defy expectations and break into a new field. People will doubt you when you do something unexpected. That’s a given. It’s how you respond when people try to dissuade you will determine if you’re successful or not. On today’s episode of The School of...

Give to Receive

11/23/2018
More
It’s a time of year where we focus on giving. We give gifts, we give back to our communities, and we give to charities. So what does it mean to give? And why is it important? Giving is not just a nice thing to do, it’s critical to your wellbeing. We are all connected- the more you give to others, the more you help yourself. For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited an amazing conversation I had with Russell Simons where he shared how the practice of giving has made him incredibly prosperous....

Mindset and Persuasion with Derren Brown

11/21/2018
More
Whatever it is, you’re creating a self-fulfilling prophecy. You’re projecting your story onto everyone around you without even realizing it. That’s why mentalists are so successful- they suggest a story to you that you accept as true. Whatever your way of thinking, it doesn’t have to stay that way. You can be free of your own story. On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk with someone who changed his own way of thinking to become an incredible illusionist and mentalist: Derren...

Charlamagne Tha God on Success, Anxiety, and Mental Health

11/19/2018
More
It’s time to open up. No matter what you’re dealing with, you’re not alone. There is nothing shameful about having anxiety. Think about this acronym for FEAR- you either Fear Everything And Run or Face Everything And Rise. The more you confront the things in your past you don’t want to do with, the more you’ll be able to move forward. So, are you going to run from your fear, or face it? On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about anxiety and PTSD with a man who has become an...

The Gift of Acknowledgment

11/16/2018
More
How often to tell the people around you what you love about them? Sometimes it feels easier to criticize. But this isn’t the path to creating an amazing team. Even if it’s uncomfortable to tell people what they’re doing right, it’s important. Like everything else, it’s a practice. Practice acknowledging others, and own the acknowledgment given to you. You’ll be amazed by how it changes your life. For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with Chris Lee where he shared his...

LeAnn Rimes on Music, Meditation, and Mindfulness

11/14/2018
More
Are you insecure and in resistance to yourself? It’s such an exhausting way to live. Instead of feelings of self-hatred, start to view everything you don’t like about yourself as a gift. Why? Because once you start to love yourself, you can begin to love others. It sounds like a cliche. But it’s the truth. Self-love is a truly powerful practice. When we start to work on our inside, the outside starts to fix itself. On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk with someone who has...

Building Human Connection in a Digital World with Dan Schawbel

11/12/2018
More
We have thousands of “friends” on social media. But how many people could you actually call in a time of need? Technology is becoming a larger and larger part of our life, but it’s causing us to be more isolated. We have to work hard to continue to build actual human connections. Otherwise, life has no meaning. On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about all the ways that technology is affecting us in the workplace with a friend who has done tons of research on the subject:...

Love Yourself Authentically

11/9/2018
More
A mental disorder is like an unhealthy relationship. You have to love yourself enough to know that you deserve better. Otherwise, you’re depriving yourself of living a full, abundant life. But it’s not easy. Admitting that you or someone you know is struggling with an eating or mental disorder is scary. That’s why, for this Five Minute Friday, I brought back a powerful conversation I had with Lindsey Stirling where she shared her journey to overcome her eating disorder. Linsey Stirling is an...

All of us have superpowers. They are the things that come easily to us. You have to find your superpower and then use it to change the world. Why is it so important? Because once you are coming from a place of passion, the rest will follow. People who lead with a desire for money or fame won’t have the same impact. It’s all about your intention. On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk with an amazing entrepreneur and mother who has honed in on her superpowers and helps others...

Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds with David Goggins

11/5/2018
More
Do you avoid challenging yourself? If you do, you’re cheating yourself of reaching your full potential. There is so much you can learn through pain. But we want to avoid it. We want to stay in our comfort zone. Growth, though, is found in the discomfort zone. You have to have the courage to face sickness, disappointment, and discomfort. That’s why I’m so excited to share this conversation I had with someone who has mastered the art of using pain as a way to better himself: David Goggins.

Are you constantly feeling like crap? You don’t need to live like that. The food that you put in your body has a lot to do with how well you function. Your body is incredible in how it can heal itself when you change your habits. Not only do we need to work on our personal health, but we also need to be aware of how our country’s policies affect our nation’s health. That’s why I’m sharing part of a conversation I had with a leading health expert who is working to transform the healthcare...
