The other day I was listening to an interview with Gary Vaynerchuck. At one point during the interview he said something that really struck me. What he said became the inspiration for this episode. He said he knew he was going to be successful before he ever realized any of the success he now enjoys. He knew it. Are you familiar with this popular success formula?: Your thoughts lead to your feelings. Your feelings lead to your actions. Your actions lead to your results. Well, if your...

Recapping 2017 and What to Expect in 2018 – ETHX 043

With 2018 now under way and 2017 behind us, I thought I would share some behind-the-scenes stories from this past year. I'd also like to give you an idea of what you can expect from the show (and some other ventures I'm working on) moving forward in 2018. There were definitely some challenges in 2017, but there were also some wins. I learned a lot about the constant and never ending process of improvement that is a natural by-product of producing quality audio and video content. While I...

The Gestation Period of Your Vision – ETHE 042

A rat: 21 days A dog: 63 days A human being: 278 days. An elephant: 624 days. Everything that comes into the physical world has a gestation period. Your vision is no exception. However, unlike the gestation periods of the animals listed above, the gestation period of your vision can be shortened. In this episode I share five ways you can do that. Like everything that comes into the material world, your vision begins as a seed. In this case, a thought seed. You choose the idea you want to...

Will Your Big Idea Make an Impact? Here Are 4 Ways to Tell – ETHE 041

Buckminster Fuller (one of my hero's) once said, "Real wealth is ideas + energy." Now, I may not know you, but I'll bet you have an idea (or a lot of them) inside of you that you're thinking of energizing and sharing with the world? And, I'll bet you're wondering if your idea (or ideas) will make an impact? In this episode I share four criteria you can vet your idea against to determine whether or not it has the potential to make a big impact. Doing this will give you a better sense of...

The Power of Perception (and How to Change it) – ETHE 040

(In this episode, I said there are 8 million people on the planet. I meant 8 billion :) And, since I was curious I did a search. It turns out there are just shy of 7.6 billion people on the planet.) In the game of life, perception is everything. The way we perceive ourselves, others, and the world at large influences the experiences we create for ourselves. Perception is the reason that despite living on the same planet, and for the most part, having access to the same opportunities and...

4 Things To Do When You Feel Like Giving Up – ETHE 039

Do you ever feel like giving up? If so, you're in good company. I can't think of any successful person who didn't think about giving up at some point in their lives. In fact, most of them say they wanted to throw in the towel multiple times along their journey to success. But they stuck with it. They dug deeper and eventually they realized their goal. In an interview with Success Magazine, Sean Stephenson said he wanted to quit so many times as he was working toward his PhD. But he didn't...

Complete Your Most Important Project by Year-End using Parkinson’s Law – ETHE 038

Do you have a project you'd like to get done by the end of the year? I do. And because of this, I feel that now is a great time to remind ourselves of Parkinson’s Law. With one month left in 2017, now is the time to pull out all the stops so we can finish the biggest projects on our to-do list by year-end. Parkinson’s Law states that; work expands to fill the time available for its completion. Sound familiar? I don't know about you, but I know all too well just how true this law is. I also...

Getting Out of Our Own Way – ETHE 036

If there ever was a universal success mantra for us human beings, it would certainly be: "Get out of your own way." Due to the nature of mind, we face a challenge every day. That challenge being, let go of old ways of being and doing, and embrace new ways. Sounds pretty simple on paper, but as you and I both know, it's anything but simple in practice. It takes a daily commitment to show up, face ourselves, and be brutally honest about how we may be sabotaging out own efforts. The...

Practicing Bodhicitta with AlejAndro Anastasio on Pilgrimage to China and Tibet – ETHE 035

AlejAndro Anastasio knows how to do a pilgrimage. He recently returned from China and Tibet, where he spent five weeks serving others, touring the area, and spending time with shaolin monks.

You see, AlejAndro isn't your typical tourist. He's a Dzogchen Vajrayana Buddhist practitioner. He also holds black...

The Fine Art of Refinement – ETHE 034

When it comes to enhancing the human experience, refinement is the name of the game. Since each of us is ultimately the cause of the experiences we attract (or create) in life, to have better experiences, we have to become better. In other words, we have to improve ourselves. We do this through the process of personal development. And, since each of us is ultimately an individualized expression of universal consciousness, the process we're really engaging in is the process of developing...

The Human Being’s Manifesto – ETHE 033

The Human Being's Manifesto is a concise written statement I created to remind you of the divine ability you have to consciously create yourself at the level of thought, using your imagination. When used in conjunction with your existing personal development exercises, it becomes a powerful tool for personal transformation. Regularly reciting the manifesto can empower and motivate you as you pursue your goals and dreams in life. The Manifesto distills the core concepts from my book, Just...

A Personal Development Lesson From an Ancient Tibetan Text – ETHE 032

When it comes to personal development, there are lots of ideas we can use to become the best versions of ourselves. The idea I share in this episode of the podcast is one of those. I was reminded of it recently when I watched The Tibetan Book of The Dead. This documentary film follows Buddhist monks as they perform the rites of passage for those who have recently died. Their goal is to help the consciousness of the deceased person either realize it's true nature, or find a good rebirth....

5 Suggestions for Fearless Living in Troubled Times – ETHE 031

In light of the recent Las Vegas shooting, I thought I'd share some ideas on fearless living. Now, I should preface this week's podcast by stating that I'm not an expert at living fearlessly. However, it's something that I'm making a conscious effort to do more and more each day. These ideas are from a book that I've gotten a lot out of over the years. It based on the Buddhist philosophy of non-dualistic thinking, and how when employed can help us alleviate a lot of the suffering we...

A Man’s Vision: Prescription Eyewear For Women – ETHE 028

Ladies, are you frustrated by the fact that your man just doesn't see the world the way you do? That he doesn’t see all of the things that need to be done around the house, and then just do them. Things like taking out the garbage, doing the dishes, or cleaning the bathroom? Well, I’m here to tell you that it’s not your man’s fault that he doesn’t see these things. The truth is, he can’t see them. Evolutionary biologists have recently discovered that over the past million-or-so years,...

10 Important Lessons I’ve Learned About Business – ETHE 027

Four years ago I began building a business around my passion for personal development, spirituality, and the creative power of thought. At that time I had a day job (and I still do), but I made a decision to devote most of my free time to building this business. It's been an exciting and often frustrating process, but I wouldn't change a thing. I knew when I embarked on this journey that the real pay off would be my own personal development and overcoming the fears, doubts, and limiting...

Struggle vs. Effort – ETHE 026

Have you ever noticed that sometimes all you need to do to take more effective action is make a subtle shift in your thinking? Understanding the difference between struggle and effort is one of those subtle shifts. Show Notes There's a big difference between struggling and exerting effort. In our culture, we have a tendency to insulate ourselves from uncomfortable experiences. If we never learn how to cope with pain (of any kind), we'll never be able to handle things when life get’s hard...
