    3 REASONS WHY YOU TAKE PEOPLE'S OPINIONS TOO SERIOUSLY - AND 3 WAYS TO STOP THAT [RE-RELEASE]

    3 REASONS WHY YOU TAKE PEOPLE'S OPINIONS TOO SERIOUSLY - AND 3 WAYS TO STOP THAT [RE-RELEASE]

    As I sit here in the final throes of editing my upcoming book, I’m worried what you’ll think if I don’t give you another podcast this week. That’s when I thought this is the perfect episode to re-release …
    Why do other people’s opinions about you matter so much to you? Or, well, to us? (Because you’re not the only one.) Why do we need to define our self-image through others people’s eyes? Someone says you have a big nose, and suddenly, “I have a big nose.” Someone calls you stupid, and suddenly, “I’m stupid.”
    You’ve lived with yourself your entire life. Shouldn’t you know who you are? Why do you let others define you?
    This stops, today.
    In this episode, you will learn the three science-backed reasons why other people’s opinions about you seem to matter so much. And you will get three tools to disarm these opinionated weapons people toss at you. (Don’t worry, NONE of these tools say, “Just stop caring about what others say.”)
    Have you ever heard that Aristotle quote, “To avoid criticism, say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.” 
    You can do that. It will keep you safe. Maybe. But, if you do, I’ll give you the for-sure part right now …
    If you don’t know who you are - here are two guarantees: 
    1. Someone’s gonna tell ya.
    And,
    2. That won’t be who you are or what you want to be.
    IN THIS EPISODE YOU WILL LEARN:
    • 3 science-backed reasons why you put so much value into what other people say.• 3 ways to change that.• Why you should NOT develop a thick skin - and how to protect yourself instead.• The important difference between self-esteem and self-worth.• How to understand your cognitive distortions (faulty wiring).• At least a couple of embarrassing (or embraceable) stories about me.• You are not the only one.
    And if you feel like you don’t fit in, remember this: Maybe that’s because you’re not meant to fit in. You’re meant to stand out! You are loved.
    Back next week!

    HOW TO TRICK YOURSELF INTO SUCCEEDING

    HOW TO TRICK YOURSELF INTO SUCCEEDING

    Don’t think. If you’re hesitating to text - text. If you’re hesitating to call - call. If you’re hesitating to take that leap of faith - leap.
    Nope. That’s not how to trick yourself into succeeding - (for the science-based explanation to that, simply listen to this episode). That’s just how all of those wildly, wealthy people, who are successful by whatever stereotypical standards of success we measure become successful.
    Successful people have one stand-out commonality: they act. They do it. They do not bend over backwards for others to please them. They please their desires. They turn their desire into action.
    What’s more, it’s not about how well they do something. They simply do it. You don’t need skill. You need action.
    So, while today you will learn the science behind success (and failure), you will also learn a personal story of mine - because I’m going through all of this with you …
    IN EPISODE 34 YOU WILL LEARN:
    • The science behind success and failure.• Why pleasing people is holding you back.• When you’re most likely to give up and how to avoid that.• What is exposure and how can it help you succeed?• You are not alone.
    You are loved.

    HOW TO GET UNSTUCK with DANIEL MATÉ: RE-RELEASE

    HOW TO GET UNSTUCK with DANIEL MATÉ: RE-RELEASE

    We’ve had so many new people join our community here, so I thought this would be a good time to revisit one of the most-listened to episodes from this podcast.
    Do you feel stuck? Well, then you are meant to be here. And my two-part conversation with Dr. Gabor Maté was meant to bring us to this place …
    Now, the last question I asked Gabor was: “What’s your biggest failure?” And he told me that his greatest failure in life was himself as a parent. (By the by, many parents would probably say the same of themselves.) So I had to ask his son Daniel to talk about that. Give his perspective.
    And, boy did he give it - and a whole lot more.
    Daniel shares his personal stories, growth, and gives insight into the father-son best-seller, The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness, & Healing in a Toxic Culture. The result is an enlightening conversation about childhood trauma, narcissists, dealing with rifts in parent-adult-child relationships and sibling relationships …
    And - really - all of this comes down to - getting stuck - AND unstuck - in life.
    We also talk about Daniel’s work as a mental chiropractor - who helps people get unstuck, and the genesis of the two Matés’ HELLO AGAIN PROJECT, which offers a fresh start for parents and their adult children.
    IN THIS EPISODE YOU WILL LEARN
    • How childhood trauma could get you stuck as an adult. Daniel and I share some deeply personal examples. (NOTE: Gabor, Daniel really loves you! And, papa, I really love you!)• Where to start when you want to get unstuck.• Your superpowers are born of a wound.• Why you’re probably looking in the wrong place to fix - or deal with - that rift with your parent or sibling.• Where to look to heal that family relationship - or to move forward.• What to do when a family member has an addiction.• You are not the only one.
    Also, please make sure you subscribe and follow along with our journey on Apple or Spotify - or wherever you listen to this. I just want to help you shine brightly and use your light to help others shine as well.
    You are loved.

    SPECIAL EP: A CONVERSATION WITH HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR PINCHAS GUTTER

    SPECIAL EP: A CONVERSATION WITH HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR PINCHAS GUTTER

    On this International Holocaust Remembrance Day, I wish you joy. But how can I begin this day by wishing JOY?
    Because I can begin this day.
    Because my grandparents survived the Holocaust - without which I wouldn't be here.
    Because my grandparents survived the Holocaust by finding any bits of joy they could to keep going.
    Yes, my grandmother and grandfather were Holocaust survivors. But I still lost them to it. Their minds were casualties well after their bodies continued. Then, as a very young child, each of them passed within months of each other.
    I never had the chance to speak to them about it, so I’ve been on a quest to speak to as many survivors as possible. Especially now that so few remain.
    But imagine being able to share your experience - vividly - with your photographic memory.
    Today, you’ll meet a survivor who can: Pinchas Gutter - a Holocaust survivor of 6 concentration camps.
    What grips my heart even more is how Pinchas chooses to continuously relive his trauma - including in a virtual reality exhibit, where he entered the very gas chamber in which his twin sister and parents were barbarically taken.
    Why?
    He tells me he does this in hopes that it will help stop the spread of hate and prevent horrors for others.
    It is a privilege to have Pinchas share his story with us … What’s more, he shares the secret of his survival. Hopefully, it will help you, too.
    This episode is dedicated this show to my Bubby Rose and Zaidie Sander.
    It’s because of them I could do it.
    They were strong enough to survive the Holocaust. You're strong enough to learn about it.
    Never forget. Never again.
