    551 - How To Escape The Pain of Inner Conflict with Kamal Ravikant

    551 - How To Escape The Pain of Inner Conflict with Kamal Ravikant

    Kamal went to Nepal to live with monks. But most people can't do this. So I had him come on to teach me what they taught him. I recorded this episode BEFORE Kamal's trip, though. So we can compare. Before and after. Here's the before. 

    Later, we'll hear how the monks taught Kamal how to feel less anxious. And escape the mental pain that comes from our daily inner conflicts. 

     

    So many of you listen to learn how to make extra money. Or make a meaningful impact. Or both. So I want to tell you where to go to learn how to tap into what you love the most and turn it into a profitable income stream. Go find out from my friends Tony Robbins and Dean Graziosi. They have a course that I'm forcing my daughters to take. It's called "Knowledge Business Blueprint."  And it's exactly that... a step-by-step blueprint that will teach you exactly how to turn your knowledge into a business. All the details are at jameskbb.com.

    550 - How to Find Your Passion: My Wife, Robyn Altucher, and I on How to Find Your Passion at Any Age and Stage of Your Life

    I get these emails all the time, "How do I find my passion? Is it too late? Am I a failure?" Every age asks this. Because we all want to know what's next for us. We all want a second act. Or third. Or fourth. And it's possible. So I sat down with my wife, Robyn, and talked about the exercises that each of us have tried. What works. What doesn't. And where to start (over).

    Also! The best place right now to discover your passion is to check out this course from my friends Dean Graziosi and Tony Robbins. It'll teach you what you care about most. And how to turn it into your job. Go check it out. And sign up for the free seminar at jameskbb.com.

    549 - PROOF You Can Conquer Your Biggest Fears: The World's Greatest Daredevil, Nik Wallenda Shares The Secrets He Uses to Successfully Defy Death Again and Again

    549 - PROOF You Can Conquer Your Biggest Fears: The World's Greatest Daredevil, Nik Wallenda Shares The Secrets He Uses to Successfully Defy Death Again and Again

    Nik Wallenda is a daredevil. He’s broken 11 Guinness World Records and should be dead from all of them. But he’s not. His skill is unexplainable. It’s part acrobat. Part circus. Part mastermind… You might’ve seen him on a highwire. BLINDFOLDED. While crossing the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, between buildings in Time Square or Chicago and more. I wanted to know how Nik defeated fear... was it his childhood training? Was it his focus or ability to control his heart rate? And how does he get himself to keep doing the thing that could plunge him to death while the rest of us are scared to quit our 9-5s? Nik’s talent is unbelievable. But the method behind it is accessible. And something we can all look at as a form of possibility.

    548 - How to make Money doing what you Love - Dean Graziosi

    If you ever catch yourself wondering how to work for yourself, this is the podcast for you. Dean Graziosi was making 1.8 million dollars at age 26. !!?? Can you imagine? When he said this, I thought, "I should’ve been more entrepreneurial." But I'm not too late. And neither are you.

    In this episode, Dean breaks down how to turn your life experiences and knowledge into a 6 or 7 figure+ business. He gives real-life case studies from people who followed his new program, Knowledge Broker Blueprint. Which he created with Tony Robbins. They wanted to make it easy for people to find their calling. And actually commit to it.

    I could say more. But I think you should do this instead. Sign up for Dean's free LIVE seminar. You'll learn how you can make more money, make an impact and tap into what you love doing. Go to jameskbb.com to sign up.

    Trust me.

    You'll be glad you did when you look back.

    547 - "The Bigger Family is the Human Race. It's The Most Important Family." Bishop T.D. Jakes on Race, Humanity, the Economy and How To Be In Service of Your True Calling

    547 - "The Bigger Family is the Human Race. It's The Most Important Family." Bishop T.D. Jakes on Race, Humanity, the Economy and How To Be In Service of Your True Calling

    I love having Bishop T.D. Jakes on the podcast. This is his third time on the show. And each time, he teaches me something new about turning pain into promise. So what does that mean? It means you're not melting into the pain of life. Instead, you're aware that you're not alone. And that other people could use your help if you pull yourself out of that. And lend them a hand. That's what true entrepreneurship is. And it starts by realizing that you can help people. Click play to hear T.D.'s deeply thoughtful expression of how to turn your passions and pains into something that makes life better not just for you, but for the world.

    546 - How to write a book in 30 days

    546 - How to write a book in 30 days

    Any one can write a book. And publish it. You don’t need a publisher. Or any gatekeeper to approve. You just need your own permission. And then you can do it yourself. So in this podcast, I walk you through how to pick your topic, how to find a unique angle to write about, how to outline your chapter, and so on. Think of this episode as a ready, fire, aim approach to writing and workshopping your own book in just 30 days flat.

    And! If you really want to hear how successful someone can be with self-publishing their own book, go look at my friend Kamal Ravikant. He published a short book, 50 pages or so. And still makes money off of it today. It's just passive income. And he felt good writing it.
