  • Why there are no guarantees in life and business
  • The absolute best investment in your business (is you)
  • Why being afraid is essential to living your best life
  • How to harness the power of urgency for results
  • How JJ navigated almost losing her son to an accident

Act as if.

This is not what you normally think it is: this is about striving for excellence in everything you do.

Especially in the world of entrepreneurship and wanting to be seen and heard, people want to be on the big stages, the big podcasts, the big shows today.

And yet, they don't show up for the small opportunities along the way.

Here's the truth:

If you're not willing to show up for one person, you're in the game for the wrong reasons.

During this episode, I'll share why this mindset can either help you strive for excellence or be an obstacle in the way.

Mastering your craft, becoming the best in the world, and doing what you love.

That's the dream, right?

When I first moved to Arizona, I would see photography from the same person over and over. I'd see it on magazine covers, inside of training facilities and online —all by the same person.

His name is James Patrick, and today he's on the Academy as we deep dive into how to find your purpose, deepen your calling, commit to being the best in the world and navigating the complexities of the entrepreneurial world.

  • How choosing to be successful and changing your mindset can significantly affect your career
  • Why achieving and celebrating milestones get you along the way
  • How to get back on track when your business plans don’t seem to work out
  • Why choosing the right clients is essential in growing your business
  • Why it is not counterintuitive to focus on your passions
  • How a fallback is necessary when you are still growing your business
  • Knowing the distinction between a hobby or a business
  • How seeking permission is not needed to pursue your dreams.
  • Why inspiration isn’t necessary when pursuing your passions
  • Why going rogue can be important in the creative process
  • Overcoming the fear of known and working on what is known to achieve your goals
  • How to take the leap if you still have doubts
  • Understanding how the creative process works
  • How to assess the financial and creative value, as well as the opportunity standpoint of each given project
  • Growing and creating FITposium, a premier live event for fitness entrepreneurs

...and so much more with one of the best photographers in the game who we can all learn from.

“Take what you need to do, do it with with passion, and focus.” - James Patrick

“If you don’t seem to be getting closer to success, peel back the layers and reassess what you need to do. Not everything will work out, but you have to take the risk.” - James Patrick

Reflection.

Rarely in a world of hustle and grind does this word come up, yet when speaking with the world's top performers, it's an essential practice.

Belief.

It's everything, right? We now accept this for our lives, but what about in the realm of science and disease?

Enter Dr. Bruce Lipton, PHD. Years ago, Dr. Lipton was a medical teacher who taught the conventional wisdom: our genes determine whether we live a healthy life, or one of disease.

Until he came to a startling discovery that changed his life forever: only 1% of disease came from genetics, and the rest was about our environment, our beliefs, thoughts and so much more.

Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., a pioneer in the new biology, is an internationally recognized leader in bridging both science and spirit. He is the best-selling author of The Biology of Belief and received the 2009 prestigious Goi Peace Award (Japan) in honor of his scientific contribution to world harmony.

You won't want to miss this episode, where you'll discover:

  • The incorrect theory of Genetics and other scientific methods
  • How individuals become powerless because of our incorrect “genetic programming.”
  • How to avoid playing the “victim card”
  • How your very own autopilot determines your state in life
  • How the environment and the mind drives genetics
  • How to recognize the various filters and lens of awareness we are subconsciously creating and how to remove them
  • How to regain the power to control your life and transform it for the better
  • Why it is essential to be aware of our consciousness
  • Why we should not be blaming our genes for our behavior, characteristics, or even diseases.
  • What is the primary driver for most illnesses of today
  • How to understand the subconscious mind and how it works
  • How to “uncreate” problems we have been subconsciously creating
  • The difference between Beta, Alpha, and Theta brain activities and how to utilize it to your advantage
  • The different ways on how to reprogram the subconscious mind to change your life

...and so much more in a powerful conversation designed to truly shift you.

“We can control our lives by controlling our perceptions.

“Your perspective is always limited by how much you know. Expand your knowledge and you will transform your mind.”

“If humans were to model the lifestyle displayed by healthy community of cells, our societies and our planet would be more peaceful and vital. ”
