Strategies To Achieve Peace w/ Trent Shelton
Today, more than ever, PEACE is elusive for many people.
We need to have more discussions about PROTECTING YOUR INNER PEACE so that you can CONTRIBUTE part of that peace to the rest of the world.
That’s why this week’s guest, TRENT SHELTON, has a lot of things you’ll want to hear. It’s rare that I ask people back on my show but Trent is one of those people you can LISTEN to and LEARN from over and over again.
Trent is a former Baylor University wide receiver who also played for the Seattle Seahawks, Indianapolis Colts, and the Washington Redskins. He built quite a following with a series of two-minute videos to track his efforts of seeking a better life which eventually led to him founding the Christian-based non-profit organization, REHAB TIME. Growing up as a preacher’s son, Trent is well-rounded in SCRIPTURE and often draws on those experiences in his speaking engagements, podcasts, philanthropy, and other outreach projects
While football was his PASSION early in life, helping others has turned out to be his LIFE’S CALLING.
Much of our chat is about combining inner peace and marrying it to YOUR CALLING. So many people are still searching for those ANSWERS, and Trent is going to give you a lot to THINK about to help you bring clarity to your FUTURE.
A big part of this is learning how to PROTECT YOUR PEACE. And as Trent explains, the way you do that is by paying attention to and maximizing your AUTOMATIC and PURPOSEFUL minutes and REMOVING TOXIC PEOPLE from your life.
Trent and I also get into how you can change your way of thinking when you can’t change your situation. As you’ll also hear, PERSPECTIVE IS EVERYTHING.
Both of us have also seen many people suffering from DEPRESSION. If that’s not you, chances are you may know someone who is depressed. One of the most important things you’ll want to TAKE NOTES on is how to overcome depression and what red flags to look for before those feelings overwhelm you or someone you know.
Trent and I both believe you can have more peace in your life. You can find it by sharpening your purpose, practicing more GRATITUDE, and being MINDFUL of the things you need to do.
Finding peace starts with the INNER YOU.
When you achieve that state of mind, all other things become possible.
Breakthrough For A Compelling Future w/ Tony Robbins
Tony Robbins is an icon
He’s an icon for a very good reason , which is that he has helped millions of people improve or change their lives
I AM ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE.
Tony and I have been FRIENDS for many years. He was one of my earliest SUPPORTERS when I decided to get into performance coaching.
We’ve spent a lot of time exchanging thoughts and ideas about how to IMPROVE the human condition, and without a doubt, those are some of the most IMPORTANT CONVERSATIONS of my life.
I’m grateful for that friendship and I’m grateful to share one of those conversations with you in this interview
We know how hard all the disruptions have been for many people, from losing loved ones to COVID, job upheavals, economic ups and downs, political turmoil, and trying to face what the future holds for us.
Because our time was at a premium, we wanted to use it where it would do the most GOOD. That’s why we focused on the fear, anger, and uncertainty so many people are dealing with right now, and how we could START A DIALOG that might provide you with some badly needed ANSWERS.
TONY wastes no time offering simple and practical advice…turn off the TV, FOCUS ON YOURSELF, and what you want out of life for 2022. He also explains why fear is more than just psychological, it’s physical too, and how that fear negatively impacts your health.
As Tony explains, the most difficult thing to do right now is CREATE MOMENTUM to overcome all the obstacles we’re facing. But that’s exactly what you need to do as part of TAKING CONTROL of your life.
Tony reveals the best way to do this is to develop the SKILLS you’re going to need to be successful in the future. Listen closely for what those skills are.
You’re also going to hear some master-class wisdom about the difference between success and FULFILLMENT, and the importance of PATTERNS and SEASONS and their impact on your life.
We can’t solve all the world’s problems in one hour, but what we wanted to do is talk about them, how those of us who are hurting can start to CHANGE some of the ways we think and to help you rediscover HOPE that’s maybe been in short supply in your lives.
Achieve More Bliss By Monotasking w/ Thatcher Wine
Have you ever felt overwhelmed by your to-do list?
Do you approach each day a certain amount of angst because of stress that's gnawing at you?
This week’s guest is going to UNLOCK some important insights for you. My guest, THATCHER WINE, is going to dig into many of the things I’ve been talking about and marry it to a proven strategy that will DRAMATICALLY INCREASE what you can accomplish this year.
That strategy is MONOTASKING.
As you can guess, it’s a complete departure from MULTITASKING which you're already well aware of.
You’ll get stuff done by multitasking, but the TRUTH is…
Multitasking teaches you how to be BUSY.
Monotasking teaches you how to be PRODUCTIVE.
Understand the difference?
Thatcher Wine is a successful entrepreneur, author, and founder/CEO of JUNIPER BOOKS that specializes in custom curated libraries and designing special edition book sets. Since launching it 20 years ago, he’s developed a devoted Instagram following and has customers in 60 countries, including GWENETH PALTROW, who hired him to curate her book collection in 2019.
Thatcher’s new book, THE TWELVE MONOTASKS, lays out a STEP-BY-STEP PLAN OF ATTACK in areas of your life where you can develop laser focus to help you get stuff done.
We also get into why he has been an advocate for READING AS MONOTASK AND A FORM OF SELF-CARE, and how you can use it as a means to BUILD FOCUS in the digital age.
As a cancer survivor, he reveals why that diagnosis changed his PERSPECTIVE on how he approaches living. We’ve all faced situations like this, so you’ll readily identify with why you need a list of VALUES and PRACTICES in place now to help you get the most out of each day you’re alive.
Thatcher Wine’s take on how to use MONOTASKING to better live your life WITH INTENTION and IN THE PRESENT MOMENT will open your eyes in many ways.
The Dirty Truth About Passion w/ Mike Rowe
Should you chase your PASSION or should you SOLVE a PROBLEM? Fill a NEED?
Are you ready for the REAL DIRT with one of the SMARTEST and MOST PRACTICAL thinkers today about work in America?
MIKE ROWE has been slogging it out in trenches, coal mines, sewers, and garbage dumps for a long time now as the host of DIRTY JOBS.
There’s a RUGGED, DOWN-TO-EARTH and TRUSTWORTHY quality about Mike. Coupled with the fact he can take any dirty job, tell a great story, add some humor, and hook you from the start, makes him one of the more unusual and compelling people in television for the past several years.
A self-described chronic freelancer, Mike has worked in more than 350 JOBS on his hit show. But he’s also an in-demand Fortune 500 speaker, podcaster, executive producer, and author as well as a vocal advocate and CEO of the mikeroweWORKS Foundation that debunks myths and promotes the value of skilled trades in the workforce.
Mike’s got some CAPTIVATING STORIES and SAGE ADVICE about THE NATURE OF WORK you’re going to want to hear.
Mike redefines why and how PASSION should be a part of what you do but probably not in a way you’ve thought of before.
He has a great take on the value of HARD WORK and MASTERING SKILLS that leads you to a path to success, whether you work with your HANDS, your HEAD, or some combination of both.
There’s also a big disconnect going on right now about the nature of EDUCATION and matching it up with meaningful work. Mike talks a lot about changing how we should REFRAME our thinking about both areas, and why we should always approach our work with a sense of HUMILITY AND CURIOSITY.
You, your children, and pretty much everyone you know are going to spend the better part of your lives working. Doesn’t it make sense that you should give a lot of THOUGHT about what it’s going to take to be HAPPY and SUCCESSFUL in whatever you choose to do?
This week’s show with Mike Rowe will start that important conversation you need to have with yourself.
This one is really gonna get you thinking !
Expert Psychiatrist's Guide To Transcend Trauma w/ Dr. Frank Anderson
I KNOW A LOT OF YOU ARE HURTING RIGHT NOW.
I SEE it in your messages. I HEAR it when I talk to people. And SOCIAL MEDIA and the NEWS are filled with stories every day of people struggling to stay afloat.
So often, we find ways to compromise as a means of living with our psychological pain and deep-seeded trauma. Many of us have been doing it for years.
But collectively, I don’t think we’re doing enough HEALING.
Especially lately, as the pandemic has turned our entire world upside down. We’ve done our best to cope amid loved ones getting sick or dying, losing our jobs and identity, battling isolation, and an all-consuming fear of the future.
This week’s guest, DR. FRANK ANDERSON is a psychiatrist who has extensively studied pain and trauma. He has made it his lifelong quest to help others heal by integrating his knowledge of neuroscience and trauma treatment with Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy.
His new book, TRANSCENDING TRAUMA, explores a unique, compassionate, and evidence-based approach to resolving dissociative trauma.
ARE YOU READY TO HEAL?
Do you want to regain the ability to CONNECT WITH and LOVE OTHERS on a deeper level?
Are you ready to help others UNDERSTAND why they’re traumatized and what you can do to help them?
Aside from the obvious BENEFITS of why it’s important to heal, until you learn to do so and take active steps to heal from trauma, there’s no way you can be the BEST POSSIBLE spouse, parent, friend, co-worker, or achieve the HIGHEST DEGREE OF SUCCESS in your career or personal life.
TIME SPENT HEALING IS TIME WELL SPENT.
And as Dr. Anderson reveals to us, it’s a WORTHY INVESTMENT in ourselves.
The American Underdog w/ Kurt Warner
Hollywood could not imagine a better UNDERDOG story than the one Kurt Warner has lived. So, they went straight to the source and made a movie about Kurt’s incredible journey.
“AMERICAN UNDERDOG: THE KURT WARNER STORY” opens in theaters soon, and I’m thrilled to welcome Kurt this week so you can hear firsthand how he OVERCAME INCREDIBLE ODDS to live one of the most INSPIRATIONAL stories I’ve heard in a long time.
After playing college football at Northern Iowa for four years, Kurt was undrafted and stocked shelves in a grocery store. He eventually landed a spot on the Iowa Barnstormers in the Arena Football League before signing with the St. Louis Rams as a backup quarterback in 1998.
A year later, everything changed.
Not only did he become a starter, during his first season, Kurt also led the Rams to a title in SUPER BOWL XXXIV and earned league and Super Bowl MVP honors. He won another league MVP when the Rams returned to Super Bowl XXXVI. After signing with the Cardinals, he led the team to their first Super Bowl appearance as well, making him the second quarterback in history to start the Super Bowl with two different teams.
When he retired, Kurt finished his career owning a dozen NFL RECORDS.
With all the challenges he faced, if anyone had a right to have self-doubt, it was Kurt.
Did he have self-doubt?
As he explains, Kurt always believed in his talent, but how he approached that talent had to CHANGE before he found success.
You’re also going to hear how stocking grocery store shelves helped Kurt create a path to the NFL. It’s a story of how doing COMMON THINGS the right way can produce decidedly UNCOMMON RESULTS that you can use in your life as well.
Kurt also gives you a masterclass on the importance of CONFIDENCE as an element of success, especially when you encounter inevitable setbacks.
FAITH has always been a part of Kurt’s life, and we spend a good deal of time talking about how Kurt’s RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD has grown and changed over the years to become one of the things that define who he is.
We touch on how he has actively applied faith in good times and the bad and how he has STAYED TRUE TO HIS FAITH despite setbacks after his incredible accomplishments.
At this time of year, and in times like these, we need UPLIFTING stories to help us find JOY and PEACE.
That’s why spending time listening to Kurt Warner’s story is a PERFECT GIFT you’ll want to give yourself and SHARE WITH OTHERS.
