How To Shift From Victim to Victor w/ John O'Leary
“John, do you want to die? It’s your choice, not mine.”
I thought for a moment and answered, “Mom, I don’t want to die. I WANT TO LIVE!”
That was the first conversation JOHN O’LEARY had with his mother after a horrific fire burned him across 100% of his body at 9 years old.
That's right. He was literally burned alive. But what is truly remarkable is what he did next. In this episode, John is going to tell you how he OVERCAME IMPOSSIBLE ODDS and how you can use the things he’s learned to LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE, even in the midst of TRAGEDY.
John O’Leary is a sought-after inspirational speaker, and podcaster and has published two bestsellers. His mission and his messages are simple. He wants to TEACH YOU how to find ways to awaken you to your life’s POTENTIAL and ENERGIZE you to live more THOUGHTFULLY, BOLDLY and INSPIRED.
John also gets into how important PERSPECTIVE is in our lives. Instead of focusing on the things he no longer had, John learned a valuable lesson about being called to use the GIFTS and TALENTS he was given and still had despite his physical limitations.
If you want to know what it takes to go from VICTIM TO VICTOR, listen closely to John’s story.
It will change the way you think.
And hopefully, change the way you live.
How To Turn Failure Into Fuel w/ Sean Casey
The MENTAL GAME, with an all-time GREAT mindset Athlete!
It’s time to get into the mind of an ELITE Performer. Imagine going from not even starting on your Freshman High School team to a few years later, being considered the #1 athlete in the WORLD in your sport!
This week we’re going to spend an hour talking with one of the most talented hitters ever to play baseball.
However, this show is about MINDSET, not baseball.
SEAN CASEY is in the studio, and I couldn’t be happier to talk to the guy they call THE MAYOR.
Most people know Sean from his playing days as a first baseman in Major League Baseball during a career that spanned 12 SEASONS. He finished with more than 1,500 HITS, a .302 LIFETIME BATTING AVERAGE, and as a 3-TIME ALL-STAR.
You’re getting a master class on THE MENTAL TOUGHNESS it takes to achieve PEAK PERFORMANCE on those big fields thousands of times over and over AND how you can apply what Sean knows to YOUR life.
You’ll recognize many of the things Sean talks about because I also believe they’re critical to SUCCESS in any game you play. That means applying STANDARDS, a POSITIVE MINDSET, GRATITUDE, and being INTENTIONAL at all times. There are NO SHORTCUTS.
Sean also has a great lesson you must hear about what happened when he started playing OFFENSE instead of DEFENSE when he wanted to set a goal of playing college ball. It’s GOLD GLOVE stuff.
Sean is also quick to point out that GREATNESS DOESN’T COME NATURALLY. Although it may look that way on the field, what you’re seeing is the result of DEDICATION, PASSION, CONSISTENCY, RESILIENCE, DEALING WITH PRESSURE, and THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX.
We’ll wrap up with Sean explaining why you should build GAPS into your life and why GRATITUDE, ACCOUNTABILITY, PERSPECTIVE, AND SERVICE are critical to making you a better person and the world a better place.
You’ll enjoy listening to the MAYOR for great insights on how to take your LIFE GAME to the highest level!
Suicide Prevention w/ Kevin Hines
This is going to be DIFFICULT for some of you to hear. And that’s all the more reason to LISTEN.
Nearly 800,000 people die by suicide in the world EVERY year… and the number continues to rise.
That means 800k+ of families and friends are impacted and left wondering, “WHY?”
Odds are, you or someone you love has been impacted by suicide. And so I am URGING you to SHARE this week’s episode with as many people as you can.
My guest, KEVIN HINES, knows more about suicide than most.
He tried to end his life by jumping off the GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE when he was only 19 years old.
A jump like that kills virtually everybody who attempts it. But miraculously, Kevin survived. And today, YOU’LL GET TO HEAR HIS TRUTH.
Kevin’s story and his message will SAVE LIVES and this may be THE MOST meaningful discussions I’ve ever had. I can’t think of a more important topic to talk about than this one.
We’re going delve into the PAIN AND FEELINGS that surround suicide, how that pain leads to ACTION, suicide PREVENTION tips, GENETICS, and dealing with OUTSIDE NEGATIVE FORCES.
You’ll also hear Kevin’s THREE QUESTIONS you MUST ask if you think someone is NOT okay and may be thinking about suicide.
*If you are having a mental health emergency call 911 or reach out to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline by dialing 988.
Protect yourself and your loved ones.
High Performance Habits for Guaranteed Growth w/ Brendon Burchard
“DID I LIVE?”
“DID I LOVE?”
“DID I MATTER?”
Those are the questions BRENDON BURCHARD asked himself after surviving a horrific car accident when he was 19. He has spent the last 26 years searching for those ANSWERS.
Those are also a few of the questions we’ll try to answer on this week’s show.
Brendon’s been on before, and so many of you made it one of the most watched episodes ever that I knew it was only a matter of time before I had to have him back.
Since the accident, Brendon has become a 3-time New York Times best-selling author and a thriving online teaching pioneer with videos that have racked up 400 MILLION VIEWS and earned hundreds of well-deserved accolades.
To CHANGE means to GROW!
In this episode we’re going to dive deep into the NATURE OF CHANGE and how factors like AMBITION, DESIRE, NECESSITY, and ESTEEM can drive YOU to change… or not.
He reveals the single GREATEST integrated personal development environment I’ve ever seen…
AND no conversation with Brendon would be complete unless we talk about HIGH PERFORMANCE HABITS and EFFORTS OF IMPACT.
It’s GREAT WISDOM…simply great wisdom.
Here’s a huge takeaway from this week’s episode.
The QUALITY OF THE QUESTIONS we ask ourselves determines the quality of the LIFE we end up living.
Start by seeking answers to the questions Brendon asks, and then KEEP ASKING other questions that matter most to you.
Ordinary Steps For An Extraordinary Wealthy Life w/ Candy Valentino
Remember who you are. Remember that you survived 100% of your worst days because you’re still here…”
This week, my guest, CANDY VALENTINO, and I will talk about a subject near and dear to everyone’s heart.
That subject is MONEY.
How to MAKE IT. How to KEEP IT.
The kind of MINDSET you’ll need.
And whether the accumulation of wealth is WORTH IT or not.
I want you to hear Candy’s story because she started out like most people…with little more than GRIT, DETERMINATION, and unwavering CONFIDENCE.
Candy is the REAL DEAL. She’s been successfully building businesses since she was 19. And doing so with NO DEGREE, NO CORPORATE BACKGROUND, NO MONEY, and NO INTERNET ACCESS! Since then, she’s built and sold businesses in service, retail, e-commerce, and product manufacturing, creating a vast real estate portfolio as a flipper and investor.
Pay close attention because in the hour we spend together, you will get a TACTICAL MASTER CLASS in creating wealth and using it for GOOD CAUSES from a woman who has become an important author, investor, philanthropist, and more.
Much of what we talk about is how to position yourself mentally for financial success. You’re going to hear why Candy advocates for thinking of yourself as a business owner instead of being self-employed.
That leads us to the psychology behind LIVING BELOW YOUR MEANS, why RELATIONSHIPS are critical and need to be nurtured as much as possible, GOOD DEBT vs. BAD DEBT, INVESTING LEVERAGE, and why SIDE HUSTLES should be an essential part of your success formula.
Many of you also wonder if PLAYING THE LONG GAME and all the SACRIFICE is worth it. It’s no secret I think that’s the case. You’ll want to hear Candy, and I discuss what that sacrifice means, the problems money solves, and more importantly, the problems money does not solve.
You rarely get an insider’s education like this, and the best part is the only cost to you is to PAY ATTENTION
It’s an INVESTMENT you won’t regret.
God’s Work in Progress w/ LeAnn Rimes
“The greatest piece of who we are is our vulnerability…our open-heartedness is our genius…”
LEANN RIMES is an American treasure and one of my all-time favorite recording artists.
I am so excited to welcome her to my show this week for an incredibly deep conversation about life, emotions, mental health, God and much much more.
This conversation will MOVE you and when I say it’s DEEP, I mean it . We are both very open and vulnerable in this conversation and it won’t soon be forgotten.
Trust me, we are both incredibly open in ways maybe neither one of us have been before
LeAnn is REMARKABLE in her CREATIVITY, TALENT, and PERSEVERANCE.
Think about this as you listen.
That’s not to say it has always been easy for LeAnn, because it hasn’t.
She makes no secret of her love of GOD and the role how PRESENCE has played in her life. You’re going to hear what that presence means and the important role this plays in her singing.
That FAITH has also been instrumental in guiding her career and her personal life.
LeAnn is going to tell you how she handles ANXIETY, being PLUGGED IN all the time, and finding ways to take good care of herself through it all. We’re also going to dig into why it’s dangerous to TIE YOUR IDENTITY TO EXTERNAL ACHIEVEMENTS and how LeAnn’s thinking about that has evolved over time.
Like any highly creative person, she’s also prone to CREATIVE HIGHS and the crashes that often come after. Those ups and downs are real, not only for her but for everyone. You’ll want to hear how she manages those types of emotions so you can use that wisdom in your own life.
We’re going to close with two things LeAnn knows a lot about…
Working on getting LOVE from other people…
And advice for making your DREAMS come true.
I think she’s well “VERSED” to talk about these things, and after you hear her, you’ll think so too.
