Becoming and Master Speaker and Presenter

I don’t know if you know this, but I used to be TERRIFIED of speaking. I couldn’t get up in front of my class to give presentations. I was even scared to read in front of a few friends. Any time I had to speak before a big games, I was trembling. Public speaking is one of the most important tools, no matter what your career is. You need to be able to properly present yourself so you seem confident, and people trust you. Thanks to some training I was able to overcome this fear. Today, I get...


Heal Your Body with Your Mind: Dr. Joe Dispenza

You may not know this, but growing up I was raised a Christian Scientist. My family didn’t believe in going to the hospital. My father believed that all I needed to heal myself is the power of belief. I was taught that a powerful mindset is all you really need to be healthy and heal things that even western medicine may not be able to help with. You might be thinking to yourself that it’s not true. That it’s all a bunch of nonsense. At the very least, you know plenty of people who feel that...


Happiness Through Hardship

We’ve all been through a lot in life. I know there’s been a lot of times you’ve felt tested, and even just beat down. As you’ve gone through these challenges you’ve acquired sets of skills to help you get through them. Those are important skills that have helped you along your journey, whether you realize it or not. Unfortunately, though, your skills may not help you with what’s next. Life is about continually growing your tool box and being adaptive and not giving up on what you were...


Leslie Odom Jr: The Art of Booking Gigs

A few years ago I was watching a really beautiful video of a song called Seriously. I was really obsessed with it. I listened to it so many times, and it moved me. It put an amazing singer on my radar: Leslie Odom Jr. As I started researching him, I found out so much more about him. He started on Broadway as a teenager doing a little show called Rent. Most recently you may have heard of another show he’s been doing: Hamilton. I think it’s no surprise that both of these shows blew up with...


Behind the Scenes of My Talk Show Launch

I am so excited to share something really big with you. It’s something I’ve been working on for a long time now. I have a new Facebook Watch show that’s available to view now: Inspiring Life with Lewis Howes. This is something I created for you. I wanted to help improve the lives of 100 million people. In order to do so I knew I needed to team up with one of the biggest networks to make it happen. By that I don’t mean a traditional network that’s burning out, like one on TV. I meant the...


Look Good Naked

Health is one of the most important things to me. If your body isn’t operating at 100% efficiency then your mind can’t either. A lot of this really does come down to diet. On a good diet, you will burn fat efficiently. You’ll have a healthier heart, your brain will function properly, and your body will be able to repair itself properly. This last part is huge for those who are recovering from surgery, or dealing with various diseases. Plus, there’s an added benefit on top of it all - you...


Welcome to the School of Greatness!

Since we've hit over 650 episodes on the School of Greatness, I wanted to record a little intro episode for any newcomers who are just discovering the show. I know it can be a little overwhelming to know where to start if you're just now diving into over 5 years of epic conversations on the show. So I recorded a short intro to explain what the show is about, how often we post new episodes, and a few of my personal recommendations of where to start. Be sure to subscribe to the show on your...


Tony Hawk: Breaking Limitations and Creating a Legacy

Sometimes success will come to you from the strangest places. It may seem like your passions won’t pay off, but if you push through and continue to grow you’ll find a way to have it work. It won’t be easy, and there will be plenty of times you’ll want to give up. It may even seem like the smart thing to do. But if you want to feel fulfilled and happy, it can’t be about the money. It has to be about the love of what you do, and trust that the money will come later. The perfect example of...


Influence People’s Minds with Mentalist Lior Suchard

Influence is a very powerful thing. It can be used to change an individual's impression or used to move the masses. It’s something that can be done for good or for bad. Too much of it is a dangerous thing, but not enough will leave you stuck in one place in life. On this episode of The School of Greatness, I have brought on someone I’ve wanted to have on for a long time: Lior Suchard. Lior is an amazing mentalist, who uses his power of influence to entertain the masses. I’ve seen him live,...


Renew Your Energy

Sleep is one of the most important things in life. If you’re not getting a good night sleep, it’ll affect every aspect of your life. Your quality of work will suffer, and you will find that you’re not as productive as usual. You’ll become more irritable, and your relationships will start to strain. Sadly, people won’t want to be around you as much as usual. When you get proper rest, going through your full REM cycle, everything gets better. You’ll find more light at the end of the road. It...


Overcome Emotional Obstacles

There’s so many times where we focus on what society tells us will make us happy, and that’s all we chase. Money, a nice car, a house, and material objects that show off our “success”. We always end up overlooking ourselves. You avoid exercising until the doctor says you have to. I’m sure you’ve experienced it plenty. You ignore your stress at work until you just can’t take it anymore. Ultimately your emotional state should take a priority. Without it, you can’t be at your best. At the end...


Building an Influential Personal Brand with Rory Vaden

There is something incredibly important in life that I don't hear enough people talking about. It's called your personal brand and it goes far beyond your career. I started learning about personal branding over 10 years ago when I got into the entrepreneurial world. I noticed a big difference between some people's brands and others. So I started taking notes. Today, I credit a huge part of my success, both personally and professionally, to the personal brand I've created. It's my...


Respect Your Priorities

A lot of times in life we do what we feel is urgent. We will go so far as to put off what we really need to do in order to take care of urgent things. Often we even put it ahead of taking care of ourselves. It’s really unfortunate because if you don’t take care of yourself you can’t take care of the urgent. You can’t work from a hospital bed. That’s why you need to have priorities. Priorities will guide you in life’s decisions and keep you on track. Most importantly, priorities will give...


Unlocking Creativity and Your Personal Genius

How many times do you try to look for success and fulfillment through logic? You might be looking too hard and in the wrong direction. Creativity is the key to unlocking your dreams and vision for the future. If you can unlock that creative mindset, you’ll be set for life. Machines and computers can do logical tasks and hard work, but they’ll never be able to be creative. That’s something only a person can do. Some people find their creative passions easily, while others feel a struggle....


The Power of Innovation (Coffee Conversations)

A business is very similar to any personal relationships you have in life. They follow a lot of the same rules if you want them to be successful. Whether you’re working on the next Amazon, courting someone new, or trying to build a relationship with your child, you need to be innovative. Innovation is all about assessing the situation. See what’s working and what’s not. Sometimes you may need an outsider’s view to see the problem areas. Most importantly, innovation comes from listening,...


Become Emotionally Fit

You’ll hear from a lot of people that if you want to succeed at something you need to cut out all of the bad. This may be in your business, your personal life, or even in your health. In reality, that’s not always the easiest thing to do. How many times have you had your heart broken and find yourself going through your ex’s Instagram posts to see what they are doing? Sure, it would be nice to cut it out - but for some reason you just can’t. The key is not to subtract these things from...


Jordan Peterson on Pain and Suffering

One of the hardest things you have to deal with in life is watching someone close to you suffer from an illness. Especially if you’re a parent. Although I’ve never had the experience of seeing my child suffer, I’ve had close loved ones go through the pain. It’s this time in life that either makes or breaks you. You have to be strong, not just for you: but also for them. If you show weaknesses, you harm their spirits. That doesn’t mean you should discourage their vulnerability. You still...


Jordan Peterson on Responsibility and Meaning

It’s common for people to question why they are here. This question can lead to depression, and a sense that the world is a terrible place. I’ve sure you’ve experienced that feeling, and you may even be going through it right now. During these times you’ll commonly replay events in your life where you felt out of control or like everything was going wrong. That’s something stemmed from a lack of purpose and responsibility for yourself. You’re lacking the goals you need to feel complete....


Hustle for a Purpose

The more successful you get, the more you are going to feel you need to hustle. You’ll feel the need to keep moving and it’ll seem like if you stop, all of the pieces will fall apart. Unfortunately, that can end up being your downfall. If you move just to keep moving, you can end up in the wrong place in life. After a while, other areas in your life will start falling apart: especially your health. And without that, what’s the point of all the work? That’s why it’s important to find that...


Mastering Body Language and Confidence

There are two things that can make or break you when it comes to achieving greatness: your body language and your confidence. If you don’t have confidence, you’ll never be able to put yourself out there to the world. You need to confidence to try, and it’s confidence that will help you get back up after your failures. Once you have the confidence to get out there, your next obstacle is your first impression. Your body language tells someone a lot about you. Sometimes, it may not be what...
