"That's not realistic."

"That doesn't make sense."

"That's never going to work."

How often do we let other people tell us what's realistic in regards to our lives, dreams, and aspirations?

On the latest Quick Hit, I'll share the key difference between REALISTIC and REQUIRED and what it means for your dreams and growth.

THE LEAP OF YOUR LIFE IS NOW AVAILABLE!

On this latest Quick Hit, I announce my upcoming book, The Leap Of Your Life: How to Redefine Risk, Quit Waiting For 'Someday,' and Live Boldly.

This is the book I wrote for someone out there who:

  • Knows they are meant for something bigger and bolder
  • Has felt stuck in how to bring their breakthroughs to life
  • Feels inspired and motivated until fear takes over and wins

...and for anyone who knows they don't want to wake up one day with the hollow feeling of regret.

The book comes out 30 days from now, and a pre-order is the BEST way to support what we do.

I’m so excited to welcome my good friend and brother, Josh Trent from Wellness Force —where we have an honest, real and free-flowing conversation in my home here in Scottsdale, AZ when he visited.

While not a formal interview, you’re going to discover how to build a powerful tribe of people who are going to push and support you in incredible ways, why your environment is massive for success, how to access your deeper spirit and connection —and understanding the seasons of life and business.

We had a blast with this conversation and I know you're going to gain insight, perspective and a shift you can apply in your life too.

ANNOUNCING THE LEAP OF YOUR LIFE!

Are you ready? Are you ready? Are you READY!!?!?

There’s a bold decision in your life you’ve been putting off, and every day passing by is a reminder of what hasn’t happened.

And now you’re wondering if it ever will.

But what if there was a way to flip the script, take the Leap Of Your Life and never wonder ‘what could have been'?

I'm excited to announce my BRAND NEW book, The Leap Of Your Life is available for pre-order now on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and all other retailers.

This book was written to give yourself permission to not only dream big and bold...but go all in on yourself and ensure you never, ever experience the sinking feeling of regret.

AVAILABLE AT ALL MAJOR RETAILERS NOW!

Every week, I get messages on social media, direct message and email asking me for advice. And many times, I answer and give free coaching to people —but then realize 3 months later they haven't changed.

This is a problem —and is has to do with how we value "free" information with zero investment (mental, physical, emotional and financial.)

On this Quick Hit, I reveal why free isn't free —and how it may be holding you back from maximum focus, results and growth in life and business.

Specialize, specialize, specialize: we are pounded with why this matters. From 7-year-old kids committing to football to the world of entrepreneurship and skill acquisition —we're being told to go deeper, not wider.

But is this advice actually valuable, or is it setting us up for an array of unforeseen consequences?

Enter the latest Academy guest, a New York Stimes Bestselling author of The Sports Gene and now his latest book, Range: Why Generalists Triumph In A Specialized World —David Epstein.

David is a pure academic and researcher who wanted to answer this question once and for all, and the answers may surprise you.

In this episode, you're going to learn the power of acquiring multiple skills, why it's never too late for you to get started, the surprising age of the average start-up founder, why being an expert creates blind spots and tons more.

If your business isn't growing, expanding and creating more freedom and revenue —something is missing. And often, what I notice is people are not taking their business seriously.

Instead of going all in, they treat it as a hobby. They dabble. They never invest in things that matter.

On this Quick Hit, I'm going to help you get clear about the psychology behind why you're business is not growing and what to do about it.

Pain is part of life. Let's face it —the human experience is incredible, and pain is part of it. The avoidance of pain, however —causes immense suffering.

And furthermore: your pain can become your power. My latest Academy guest is a dear friend, brother and brother in arms, Jay Nixon.

Jay Nixon is an internationally recognized transformation coach who has been profiled by ABS, CBS, and FOX. He has also been featured in magazines such as Health and Triathlete. With his extensive coaching and speaking career and deep life experience, plus his witty but purposeful writing style, there’s no one better qualified to explain the benefits (yes, benefits!) of suffering than Nixon.

Jay is the bestselling author of The Overweight Mind and is now is back with a groundbreaking new book, The Purpose of Pain.

On this episode, you're going to discover:

Passion. Enthusiasm. Purpose.

They're all amazing and required when starting your dream and ambitions —but they don't last. And worst off: when you rely on them, you quickly realize they're not enough.

Enter one of my favorite topics: skill acquisition. 

In this Quick Hit, I ask you a simple question:

What skill are you focused on the rest of 2019 designed to amplify your value in the marketplace?

I'll help you get clear and craft your skill gameplan for the rest of the year.

Human potential. You have it, I have it, we all have it —but why do some tap into it and others never access it? What are the core differences between those who are expanding and those who are contracting? Enter my latest guest, Gregg Braden.

Gregg Braden is a five-time New York Times best-selling author, researcher, educator, lecturer and internationally renowned as a pioneer bridging modern science, ancient wisdom, and human potential.

He’s also shared his presentations with The United Nations, Fortune 500 companies, indigenous elders, religious leaders, diplomats and the U. S. military, and he is now featured in media specials airing on major networks throughout the world.

"We have lost the sense of value in human life." - Gregg Braden

During this episode, you’re going to discover: 

  • Re-defining spirituality as our relationship to our world
  • How we started to feel separate from others and the world
  • How to examine your personal and cultural stories
  • Why human life has been destroyed through separation
  • Examining the purpose underlying our existence
  • Why science is not equipped to deal with purpose
  • How to navigate the chaos of our external worlds
  • How we can choose to create our daily experience
  • Why we can't wait for our leaders to show us the way
  • Why we must give up old ideas of where we came from

..and so much more in a deep, rich and powerful conversation designed to shift your perspective.

We’re already 50% done with 2019.

I couldn’t believe it —and that’s precisely then I booked an appointment with myself for 3 hours titled 2019 Mid Year Check In.

(Creative, right? I need to work on that.)

And you can and should do the same: because with 50% of the year done, it’s time to re-evaluate.

Remember: if you don’t pause and take a moment to reflect on your biggest wins, challenges, the big audacious goalsfrom the start of the year while taking inventory —you’re going to wake up in December wondering what happened to the year.

For most people, they don’t even remember their big targets from the start of the year: tripling their revenue, finally quitting their job, cultivating the relationship of their dreams, etc. Because of this, they’re unwilling to pause and reflect. Usually, because they feel guilt over not moving forward and don’t need the reminder.
