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...

Build a Purpose Driven Business, Education, and Life with WeWork Co-Founder Rebekah Neumann

11/7/2018
More
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.

Use Food to Heal Your Body

11/2/2018
More
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...

Master the Laws of Human Nature with Robert Greene

10/31/2018
More
Life’s an enrollment game. You’re either signing people up or pushing them away. The more you can learn about how the human mind works, the more you can be aware of how your actions influence others. It’s so much more than just the words that you speak. The energy that you bring into a room and the attitude you have towards life has a huge effect on the people around you. That’s why I’m so excited to share this conversation I had with an expert on human nature and the art of seduction:...

Money Habits: How to Create a Rich Life with Ramit Sethi

10/29/2018
More
Talking about money can be hard. Most people would rather talk about dying than money. It’s important to come up with a game plan. When you get organized with your finances, the stress starts to go away. Both high earners and people struggling with debt both need to be educated about money management. It’s not as complicated as you think. That’s why I’m excited to share this interview with a money guru who helped me get out of debt when I was younger: Rami Sathi.

Become a Marketing Master Through Storytelling

10/26/2018
More
If your struggling in an area of your life, it could be due to marketing. Marketing isn’t just important in your business. It’s in every area of your life. Everything you do is designed to attract or repel others. The way that you’re telling your story and selling yourself has a lot to do with who is willing to get on board. That’s why I wanted to bring back a conversation I had on The School of Greatness with a master marketer: Joe Polish.

Discipline Yourself for Greatness with Eric Thomas

10/24/2018
More
Look at where you are right now. Are you at the bottom? Are you at a plateau but feel like you’re not moving? Everything you’ve done so far is the foundation for where you’re going next. It’s never too late. You never have too much stacked against you. That’s why I’m so grateful to share a Q+A from this year’s Summit of Greatness with a good friend and powerful speaker: Eric Thomas the Hip Hop Teacher.

The Secret to Self Worth with Alicia Silverstone

10/22/2018
More
Even the most successful people can struggle with self-esteem. You won’t be able to share your gifts with the world if you don’t feel worthy. Often, finding a cause, we believe in can cause us to figure out who we are and what we stand for. Be empowered to make a choice you believe in. That’s why I am so grateful to share a conversation I had with an actress who has found meaning by taking a stand on Animal Rights: Alicia Silverstone.

How to Break Your Addiction

10/19/2018
More
In football, we had systems for exercise, nutrition, plays, and practice. If the system worked, we won championships. The same works for addiction. You have to have a system in place to help you overcome it. You can’t just hope that you’ll make the right decision when you’re faced with it. It all starts in the morning. Meditation, gratitude, and breathing can help you get in the right mindset. Program your day. We all have addictions we want to end. That’s why I’m sharing some key points...

How Champions Win

10/17/2018
More
You hear so often that people get to the top of the mountain and realize that the summit isn’t the answer. To be a champion, you have to know that there is so much more to success than a final outcome. If you focus on the goal without being connected to your joy and larger purpose, you will get burnt out. But when you’re coming from a place of passion, the results will fall into place. To explore this topic further, I gathered parts of conversations with four world-class champions who’ve...

Embracing Death, Making Music, and Finding Purpose with Mike Posner

10/15/2018

Every athlete needs an offseason. They need time to train in different ways to strengthen their mind and body for a new year. The more you work on yourself, the more you’ll be able to give. Give your mind, your heart, and your soul the nurturing it needs to grow. That’s why I was so excited to speak with an artist who is on a journey to find inner peace in order to share his gifts: Mike Posner.

The Power of Meditation

10/12/2018
More
Why do we set aside time to take care of our bodies, but not our minds? You need to work out your mental health just as often as you work out your physical health. Meditation is basically a bicep curl for your brain. When you meditate, you’re training your brain to come back to the present moment over and over again. It’s scientifically proven to alter your brain waves. That’s why I’m revisiting a conversation I had with someone whose life was changed by meditation: Dan Harris.

The Power of Building Influential Relationships

10/10/2018
More
The biggest challenge I see is that most people don’t have support groups. You will not get to where you want to go without the help of those who know more than you. Find people who won’t just take from you. Find people who will help you build your dreams. That’s why, for this episode of School of Greatness, I put together a networking mashup. Here are three excerpts from previous interviews with three people whose careers have been made through networking: Keith Ferrazzi, Bozoma Saint John,...

What We Need Most to Change the World with Dr. Alaa Murabit

10/8/2018
More
For my whole life, everything has been a competition. You either win, or you lose. I wasn’t intentionally trying to hurt people, but I wanted to be a winner. It wasn’t until I was 30 years old that I learned a better way to live: win/win. It transformed my life. I started looking for ways that I could succeed while allowing the people around me to succeed, too. At the end of the day, we’re all in this together. The idea of creating win/win situations has been mastered by my guest on today’s...

Change Your Mind about Failure

Everyone thinks they can be a great entrepreneur. But is that what you’re best at? If a rabbit is trying hard to be a frog, it may make a decent frog. But it would be a much better rabbit. To be successful, you have to combine your natural talent with hard work. Even the most dedicated football player can’t make it to the NFL without innate skill. That’s why I’m revisiting a conversation I had with a person who was born to be an entrepreneur and who has spent his life pursuing it: the...

Success Habits: The Proven Way to Achieve Your Dreams with James Clear

10/3/2018
More
When I lived in Columbus, I knew that I wanted to make a lot of money. So I took my TV out of my apartment. If I wanted to watch a game, I went to a sports bar. If I wanted a break, I would go to the movies. I changed my environment to help me reach my goals. Habits will only work if you create a world that makes them easy. If you have a pinched water hose and you want more water to come out, you can either create more water pressure or straighten the hose. Which one do you think is easier?...

Scott Harrison: Live with Purpose or You’ll Live with Regret

10/1/2018

A life of ego is so unfulfilling. We can get caught up in the comparison game: who has the most money, the bigger house, the best car. It’s never-ending. At the end of the day, what kind of legacy does that leave? If we can have a cause that is greater than ourselves, we can find purpose. That’s why I’m so excited to share the powerful story of a nightclub promoter turned philanthropist: Scott Harrison.

Stop Being Comfortable

9/28/2018

How often do you listen to your body when it says, “I’m done?” We get tired, our muscles get sore, so we throw in the towel. We’re wired to stop every time we start to feel pain. But if we ignore that, we can push ourselves to a new limit. Unless you get uncomfortable, you won’t know what you’re really capable of. That’s why I’m excited to revisit a conversation I had with a new friend who is always pushing himself to the next level: Jesse Itzler. Jesse is ultramarathon runner who is also a...
