My Most Powerful Episode Ever - Ed Mylett in the Hot Seat, Interviewed by Jamie Kern Lima
This is THE most emotional conversation of my lifetime...
We have flipped the script this week. I’ve asked one of my truly dearest friends, Jamie Kern Lima, to GUEST HOST the show and interview ME about my highly anticipated new book, THE POWER OF ONE MORE, coming out June 1. (You can pre-order now).
As you might guess, Jamie knows me really well, so not only am I fielding some questions that only Jamie knows to ask, I’m also going to REVEAL things I’ve never told anyone before, publicly or privately.
Nothing was off the table!
Jamie and I are going to give you a big sneak peek on some of the things you’ll read in my new book, THE POWER OF ONE MORE, coming out of June 1.
I WROTE THIS BOOK TO HONOR MY DAD. He was a KIND AND LOVING MAN who battled alcohol addiction early in my life. Throughout the years, my dad became the person who had the most profound influence on my life. After he beat his addiction, for 35 years, HE TAUGHT ME LESSONS, many of which are in the book… lessons that I still use to this day.
I wasn’t expecting her to ask me about what I struggled with the most growing up. I had to think about it and like a lot of people I know, I had to fight through so many kinds of CONSTANT FEAR.
Fear I wouldn’t fit in. Fear that I wasn’t good enough. Fear that I’d be found out as an imposter. Fear my dad would get hurt while he was drinking, or God forbid, he would accidentally hurt someone else.
I’m also going to tell you how I’ve leveraged a life full of ONE MORES to become successful.
I’m especially grateful to Jamie for asking me about HOW MY DAD SPENT HIS LAST DAYS and what I learned after he passed that had a huge impact on me.
I hope there are no rules about shedding a few tears on your own show because I definitely broke them...
Let’s just say when I get to the end of my life, I’m praying that I turn out to be half the man my father was.
This week’s guest host unpacked a lot in the 90 minutes we spent together. THANK YOU, JAMIE… my friend who got me to say things I never thought I would.

As a bonus, we discuss his peak performance strategies as well.
A remarkable REVEALING PEEK behind what it's like to bare the deepest parts of your SOUL while constantly living in that public eye.
Brett had the courage in this interview to be as open as anybody who has ever been on my show. I know his strategies will help you and his vulnerability will inspire you.
You're going to hear some straight talk about Brett's struggles with PRESSURE AND ANXIETY and the enormous ongoing responsibilities of having to write songs that the record company, his fans, and he likes as well.
Like many other talented entertainers, Brett has also dealt with IMPOSTOR SYNDROME and handling CRITICISM. You'll also be especially interested in hearing his battles with DYSLEXIA and how he fought to overcome that unique challenge.
He also talks about the time he almost walked away from it all and whether all the SACRIFICES have been worth it.
Despite his battles, Brett has maintained an even-tempered approach to his career. He is a role model for people trying to break into the business and wraps up our talk with some GREAT ADVICE FOR CHASING YOUR DREAMS, whether you want to be a country music superstar or anything else you want to pursue in life.
So… kick back and relax for a spell.

No BS Guide To Self Confidence
The question I'm asked most frequently is how to build more SELF CONFIDENCE. People recognize that this tool, above all others, is ESSENTIAL FOR SUCCESS in all parts of your life.
This week's guest, LISA BILYEU, is a self-confidence expert, and she's got a lot of valuable tips and strategies on how to build this CRITICAL MINDSET into your own life. Many of those thoughts are captured in her upcoming book RADICAL CONFIDENCE: 10 NO-BS LESSONS ON BECOMING THE HERO IN YOUR OWN LIFE.
As you'll quickly discover, Lisa's brand of self-confidence is RAW and DOWN TO EARTH.
Like many people, she's overcome a lot of challenges. Instead of hiding, Lisa details how she CONSCIOUSLY chose to develop a STRONG SENSE OF SELF that changed her life forever.
That radical transformation led to a complete overhaul of how she approached those challenges. In fact, changing her mindset was one of the driving forces that she and her husband used to grow Quest Nutrition by 57,000% in 3 years, ranking it as INC. Magazine’s #2 Fasting Growing Company in North America in 2014.
Lisa reveals several practical strategies you’ll want to hear.
One of those is "KILLING THE SQUIRREL," a metaphor for doing away with distractions in your life.
She also explains why using GRATITUDE the wrong way can be a dangerous pitfall in your life.
I've often said the toughest battles are the ones you fight between your ears which is why Lisa's story about battling the MEAN GIRL VOICES in her head resonated with me, just like they will for you.
Lisa also talks about the importance of pushing forward and doing your best by focusing more on HOW YOU DO THINGS instead of worrying about the outcome. Stripping away that need for VALIDATION is one of Lisa's primary keys to RADICAL CONFIDENCE and a lesson you'll want to hear.
The bottom line is that Lisa preaches a pragmatic brand of COMMON-SENSE THINKING.
If you're looking for EFFECTIVE SELF-CONFIDENCE STRATEGIES that will not only make you THINK but that you can put into ACTION, my interview with Lisa Bilyeu an hour well spent.
Gut Health for Mental Health w/ Dr. Amy Shah
I’ve got a GUT FEELING you’re going to really like this week’s episode.
That’s because this week’s episode is all about GUT HEALTH featuring one of the TOP EXPERTS in the field, DR. AMY SHAH.
DO NOT TAKE THIS LIGHTLY!
If you want to take your health and wellness to an even higher level, you need to listen to this episode…
Or if you’ve got some unexplained issues like fatigue, brain fogginess, discomfort of any type, aches and pains… You gotta listen to this!!
After a serious car accident that jolted her into thinking about her life differently. Dr. Shah realized while she didn’t sustain any physical injuries in the accident, mentally she wasn’t happy. Against the backdrop of a busy schedule of studying for her medical boards and building a practice from scratch, her health was suffering. She began struggling with WEIGHT GAIN, LOW ENERGY, and UNEVEN MOODS before coming to the realization she needed a complete mental, hormonal, and inflammatory reset.
That led her to her life’s work, WELLNESS, and the strong MIND AND BODY connection necessary to achieve OPTIMAL HEALTH.
Dr. Shah has become obsessed with creating methods and tools to help people move forward in their lives. She has authored an incredible must-read book, “I’M SO EFFING TIRED: A PROVEN PLAN TO BEAT BURNOUT, BOOST YOUR ENERGY, AND RECLAIM YOUR LIFE” named one of the five best business books of 2021 by FORTUNE MAGAZINE.
Using cutting-edge science, she has helped thousands of people tap into their powerful energy trifecta: the complex relationship between your GUT, your IMMUNE SYSTEM, and your HORMONES.
Based on years of research Dr. Shah explains how your GUT and your BRAIN are connected. You’re going to hear how your gut impacts your mental health, and how we think impacts our gut.
We also cover why being exposed to BACTERIA is better for your immune system, how INFLAMMATION is linked to your gut bacteria, and what you can do to FIX YOUR GUT.
You’re also going to get deep insights into Dr. Shah’s NUTRITIONAL RESEARCH, including what foods we should and should not be eating, and HOW WHAT TIME WE EAT AFFECTS OUR GUT.
If you’re like a lot of people, you’ll also want to hear what Dr. Shah has to say about those dreaded SUGAR CRAVINGS and how they’re connected to our DOPAMINE PATHWAYS.
Make no mistake, your gut health does affect your LIFESPAN. So, if you haven’t been doing a good job of taking care of it before now, what you learn on this week’s episode from Dr. Shah should be more than enough to get you thinking about gut health with a degree of urgency.
The Brain Behind the Brawn w/ Phil Heath
I hope you’re ready to do some HEAVY LIFTING for this week’s podcast.
You are going to hear one of the most INSPIRING stories about DEDICATION and creating the highest possible STANDARDS from one of the most accomplished bodybuilders and athletes in the world.
PHIL HEATH is a SEVEN-TIME MR. OLYMPIA WINNER, going undefeated in the competition every year from 2011 to 2017. He is tied with ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER for the second-highest number of wins, just behind LEE HANEY and RONNIE COLMAN who have eight wins each.
He has applied the same incredible WORK ETHIC and FOCUS as an entrepreneur and founder and CEO of Phil Heath Labs and the founder of Gifted Athletics, among others. All of Phil’s ventures have the same purpose of helping you HONE YOUR STRENGTHS and ACTIVATE YOUR BEST SELF.
As an avid bodybuilder myself, I was especially curious to know what it takes to get to the next level. There are a lot of OBSTACLES TO OVERCOME, and Phil touches on many of them.
If you want to know more about what it takes to be HEALTHIER, whether it’s at Phil’s level, or if you’ve got more modest goals, you’re going to want to hear what he has to say about…
…the right COMPETITIVE MINDSET
…dealing with TEMPTATIONS
…the challenges of TRAINING ALONE
…MENTAL and EMOTIONAL AWARENESS
…using VISUALIZATION to help you achieve your goals
…and dealing with PAIN (a subject that is often overlooked in my opinion)
Bodybuilding is as much a MENTAL game as it is a physical pursuit, and Phil also gets into EMOTIONAL TRIGGERS, what drives him to be the best, and how he continues to create challenging EXPECTATIONS to feed those high-level outcomes.
One other important area Phil talks about is his FAITH, and how it has helped him maintain a positive and steady course throughout the years.
When you look at Phil, his accomplishments are chiseled into his physique. But what you don’t see is what it took to get him there.
This week, you’ll learn what it took for Phil, and how you can apply to your own life what he learned along the way.
The Science of Brain & Heart Coherence w/ Dr Joe Dispenza
Your BRAIN is the most powerful organ in your body.
Brain function is the most studied and, in some ways, least understood part about us. It continues to AMAZE, MYSTIFY, CHALLENGE, and ASTONISH us every day.
Knowing all this, it’s surprising we don’t spend a lot more time on our BRAIN HEALTH, taking every step we can to better understand how our brain works and how it impacts every part of our life.
This week, I’m welcoming back a bonafide EXPERT on how our BRAINS FUNCTION for another engaging exchange. DR. JOE DISPENZA has traveled to more than 33 countries to give lectures on discovering the full potential of the human brain and has three New York Times bestselling books to his name.
He has devoted much of his life to studying neuroscience and neuroplasticity, quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG) measurements, epigenetics, mind-body medicine, and brain/heart coherence.
Don’t let those words intimidate you. It all boils down to Dr. Dispenza digging into the INNER WORKINGS OF WHAT GOES ON INSIDE YOUR HEAD.
Do you want to know how STRESS affects the relationship between your HEART AND BRAIN?
Or why you cling on to the SUFFERING in your life instead of EXPLORING THE UNKNOWN?
Are you curious how athletes gain a MENTAL EDGE to compete at the highest levels?
What are the benefits to having all parts of your brain on the same “wavelengths” so that BRAIN COHERENCE works in your favor?
Dr. Dispenza has powerful INSIGHTS to help you shed unwanted thoughts and mental roadblocks using proven science-based research. You will discover how to replace what’s holding you back with CLARITY, INTENTIONAL CONSCIOUSNESS, and POSITIVE EMOTIONS.
This isn’t an hour spent talking about theories. It’s an hour of DOWNLOADABLE AND TEACHABLE STRATEGIES that will fortify how you think so you can change your life for the better.
Get ready because Dr. Joe is about to “DISPENZA” a lot of practical advice…
…and give your brain a lot of important things to think about.
