    “What’s Important to You After You Die ” - Ryan Lindner Interview

    “What’s Important to You After You Die ” - Ryan Lindner Interview

    Are you truly living your life in a way that matches up with what you want it to be? Today’s guest, Ryan Lindner, experienced two serious cardiac episodes at a young age. After falling unconscious sometimes even with clients, he realized how important it was for him to understand his own energy and how to manage and care for it. It’s hard *not* to redefine your life after an event like that, and Ryan made it his mission to help others figure out what truly matters to them so that they could live each day, each moment, present and appreciative of their lives. There truly is no time to waste. 



     KEY TAKEAWAYS 
    Think about who you are if you don’t list your resume. And if you don’t know, explore that. If you do, explore it more. 
    We're all just here for a short time. People say life is short all the time, I know that. But again, you don't reflect that in your daily life.We make choices that don't reflect that. And that's all life is – it's all a series of choices you've made about what is and is not important to you.
    Every day can be an experiment in trial and error, every day can be a redo. If you find yourself getting trapped in a spiral of your own negative self-talk, try to treat yourself as you would a friend. It takes time but you can grow out of the habit. 
    Most people gravitate towards familiarity; rejection is not a comfortable feeling. So what do they do, they're gonna go back to the safety of familiarity. And that's why a lot of people don't take those big risks that are really necessary to learn.



    BEST MOMENTS  




    “That's all time management is – managing your own energy. When I had to manage my energy after going through a trauma, I didn't have time for the “problems”; I didn't have time to worry about those types of things. My life dramatically shifted after that and [my coaching] sessions shifted as well.”
    “If you believe that you're stuck, and you don't have time, then that's true.”
    “Every day is a redo. And that's the sort of grace that you can extend to yourself, not just other people.”
    “Lately, I've been trying to help this stray cat. She's so tiny and hungry. I've been trying to – I don't know what I'm doing, really. But I look at her, and I just think  “I wonder what her life is like” –  you know, she doesn't have anyone, she probably has never been touched. [There’s]  something beautiful, like, trying to have a relationship with this cat, to where there's trust, and I think I feel more at peace, you know, fulfilling my purpose working with a stray cat, then I would, at any career endeavor.There's just something you know, just beautiful about being there with life.”



     ABOUT THE GUEST 

    Ryan Lindner is a personal development specialist who has worked as a behavioral coach for clients and organizations worldwide. After two sudden, unexplained cardiac arrests at a young age, he began to explore with clients the different perspectives that come with any profound, life-changing event. 



    If you aren’t living, you’re dying. It wasn’t uncommon for Ryan to teeter on unconsciousness even, at times, while working with a client, which required him to prioritize his energy and time. He learned how to assist clients to do the same. Ryan enjoys his time with his family and animals. He finds peace near his favorite spots by the beach.

    “Lead in the Way You Want to Go ” - Mary Welp Interview

    “Lead in the Way You Want to Go ” - Mary Welp Interview

    Sometimes you need the world to crash around you before you spiritually wake up to realize you are not living your true life. Our guest today, Mary Welp, is a cranio-sacral and body work practitioner who believes that we need to be more authentic and vulnerable both as a daily practice with ourselves and in our interactions to live our lives filled with purpose. 

    She has spent the last 20 years focusing on her mission to help others self-actualize and our hour of conversation truly flew by. I hope you’ll join us.






     KEY TAKEAWAYS 
    Use the acronym RISE {Relax, Imagine, Suggest, Empower}  to move past your reactive emotions and become more emotionally regulated so that you can actually be present in each moment. 
    To live your best life, be vulnerable, authentic, grateful, and find your purpose. 
    You don’t have to believe in bodywork, like Reiki, to get on a practitioner’s table. The work never requires your belief. 
    A story about a father and a son standing on the banks of a dirty river: the son asked his father, “Dad, is the river polluted?” And he says “no, Son, the river is not polluted. The river is pure, it just carries pollutants. I'd like to remind us that we can stand on the banks and watch our thoughts. So question what you think? Question what is in your river, your habits, your thoughts, your imprints. If something in your river does not suit you anymore, does not help you, does not make you a better, happier person – fish it out, get it out of that river. Change is possible for all of us.



    BEST MOMENTS  
    “In our culture, we give a hard time to people who state what they need, and there is nothing wrong with that – we all have needs.” 
    “If you're consistent; if you wake up with the same intention several days in a row, that's adding more and more fuel and power to that intention. Because intentions and thoughts are energy, they are physical energy. So what energy do you want to create around yourself?”
    “When we pre-design our life, we are excluding all of the extra magic and beauty that can happen in our life, because we are setting ourselves down such a rigid path, that maybe there's an opportunity for something that we had never dreamt of, to happen.”



     ABOUT THE GUEST  

    Mary Welp, CH, is a certified hypnotherapist specializing in hypnotic meditation. After 20 years as a practitioner in Craniosacral therapy and 14 years as a certified hypnotherapist, she launched RISE Hypnotic Meditation to teach others how to bring meaningful, positive changes to their lives. She lives in Louisville, Kentucky.

    “Who Do You Choose to Be ” - Jem Fuller Interview

    “Who Do You Choose to Be ” - Jem Fuller Interview

    Join me for this wonderful conversation with a man who seems to have done it all. He’s backpacked around the world, been a traditional tattooist, founded companies, and he has written a fabulous book, “The Art of Conscious Communication for Thoughtful Men.”. He has studied mindfulness and awareness and brings this spirit of adventure and spiritual equanimity to every interaction. We talk about how paying attention, and making intentional decisions can shape us and the people in our world. 



     KEY TAKEAWAYS 




    We can practice our communication in the traditional sense, to share a sense of community with one another. And we can understand this as a skill, and improve on it. 
    Everything is a projection, so we can train ourselves to change our projections and therefore our perceptions – we can change our lives. 
    We can gradually change our ways of thinking over time that will enable us to curate a life closer to the one we’ve always visualized for ourselves. 
    There is a real magic to life that underwrites the scientific explanations. We can’t identify it, only experience it. 





    BEST MOMENTS  
    [Do you love yourself?] “I do. This is how I feel about myself. I'm a really good man. You know, I'm kind, I'm generous, I'm loving. I care. I'm passionate. Action-taking. You know, I've brainwashed myself to love myself – literally fired the neurons so many times that they've wired together. And I believe my own hype. So, am I worthy of love? Well, philosophically, I believe we all are. But did I love myself before like this? No. So how did I change? Persistence, consistency, determination, and repetition, every day, out loud, “I am good enough, just the way I am.”” 
    “Everything I ever said or did to myself or anyone else, whether it was loving or cruel, or whatever it was, apparently, I should have done it. Why? Because I did.I can't change it. Does that mean I want to repeat the mistakes in the future? Hopefully not. Hopefully, we learn and grow and evolve, right? But everything that's happened should have. This is radical self acceptance.”
    “I certainly understand that most of what we do is subconscious. Most of what the brain does, by the way, is running this system, this body of ours that we’re completely unaware of. And I also you know, I love the practice of being more conscious, spending more time noticing – whatever it is that you can notice. And I find there's a lot of practical and functional application of that into the quality of your life.”
    “What I find fascinating is, in those glimpses of being beyond identification, beyond the ego in those glimpses, is that me?”



     ABOUT THE GUEST

    “Prosper Where You’re Planted ” - Darrell Evans Interview

    “Prosper Where You’re Planted ” - Darrell Evans Interview

    Darrell Evans has founded and run six multi-million dollar companies since he was 20. He’s a natural entrepreneur whose main mission in life has been to make a positive impact on others. In our conversation we talk about his sometimes circuitous journey to becoming the business mentor he is now, and the lessons he has learned along the way: how to decide what is truly important for you and how to prioritize that, how to become successful in a literal and figurative sense. I hope you enjoy it. 

     

     KEY TAKEAWAYS 

     
    There is a connection between sports (the team building, the discipline, the practice) and entrepreneurship
    It is important to be transparent about the struggles you’ve had in your journey to humanize the process and demonstrate empathy with those who may want to follow in your footsteps
    Find out what works for you and hone that. Darrell finds creative juice in “procrastinating”: the adrenaline high of the time crunch and delivering diamond-cut results right on deadline. For a lot of people that would be a “flaw” that would need to be “corrected”. 
    When you’re considering a new opportunity, you need to check that, if you say yes to it, will that compromise your ability to be the best and most present version of yourself to the commitments you’ve already made.






    BEST MOMENTS  
    “I don't know that I was born an entrepreneur, but I do believe that there are a lot of aspects of my entrepreneurial journey where I have been made, in a sense. I think that there are some unique gifts that we were all given at birth, or we came into this world with. I call that someone's superstar DNA.” 
    “I've become more sensitive to “opportunity costs” and realizing that I have a kind of newer decision model. … The distinction is hell yes. You can't say yes to all things. So there's good opportunities. But is it a “hell yes” opportunity?”
    “I think our weaknesses can catapult us to our greatest strengths, if we are able to find comfort in who we are.”
    “Jim Rohn said, “You know, it's not the blowing of the wind that determines your destination, it is the set of your sail. When the winds blow, they blow on all of us.All of us are going through it in some way, shape, or form. The question is, what do we want to do? How are we going to navigate the sail during the wind? Sometimes we wait too long to change the sail.”





     ABOUT THE GUEST  


    Darrell Evans is a serial entrepreneur, investor, and co-founder of Yokel Local Internet Marketing, a digital marketing agency).

    There, he and his team have helped businesses generate over $300 million in revenue online. He’s personally started and/or operated six businesses since the age of 20.

    “Seek that Light and Truth in your Life ” - David R. Edwards Interview

    “Seek that Light and Truth in your Life ” - David R. Edwards Interview

    David has not only experience in the health care sector, but experience in managing the companies he’s been a part of, which has given him a unique perspective on the holistic nature of the human body. His work helped him realize that, in allopathic medicine, doctors don’t talk to each other so the ultimate picture of their patient’s health ends up fractured. He saw it proved, time and time again, that a more integrative approach was ultimately the healthier and more empowering choice. That inside out approach to one’s total health is what eventually led him to writing the book New You, Who Knew, where he advises readers on how to figure out who they are in life so that they can be guided by their own principles.

    This is a lovely, thoughtful conversation with someone whose own heart is worn on his sleeve. I hope you’ll join us. 





     KEY TAKEAWAYS 

     
    Nobody can truly have 27 core values because it’s too vague. It’s important for us as humans to work from our morals, but in order to understand what truly matters to us we need to get specific about what kind of world we want to create. 
    Getting intentional about our life can help us both live better in the present moment and get better prepared for the future. 
    Focus on the little things that we actually have control over. 
    Living the life you are meant to frees up a lot of energy for the work you are meant to do. 





    BEST MOMENTS  

     
    “What's our mission, our purpose – if you will, our passion –  to me, that makes a huge difference.”
    “We are better off if those from whom we seek help for our health,  to optimize our health or to overcome challenges with our health, if they would think of us as a whole person.”
    “If we think of ourselves not as assets, but as human beings, what a shocking concept. We are human beings, right? We are a part of nature, we influenced nature, we are influenced by nature. And I like this natural metaphor because I think it fits human beings better. And so if we think of values as a foundation, it's like having strong roots.”
    “Having regrets is like having a backpack, you know, filled with rocks and useless stuff, they’re not gold bars, but rocks. And so when we don't have regrets in our life, you know, that backpack gets a lot lighter. “







     ABOUT THE GUEST  


    For over 30 years, David worked in the health care sector, eventually becoming the CEO of a community health center, working to create the first patient-first, integrative health service. After his own eureka moment, he left his high-paying job and wrote the book “New You, Who Knew?” which aims to instill a foundation of values in every person so that they can face their life feeling empowered to make their own decisions. He has been married to his wife Linda for 36 years, and they have two grown daughters.
