    The Science of Amazing Friendships w/ Dr. Marisa Fanco

    The Science of Amazing Friendships w/ Dr. Marisa Fanco

    This week is a fascinating show about FRIENDSHIP.
    This one is so so IMPORTANT.

    I’ll be HONEST with you…one of the people this week’s show may HELP the most is me!

    As I’ve mentioned many times before, although I put myself out there all the time, deep inside, I’m still very much an INTROVERT. I’ve always felt I could do better in smoothing out the AWKWARD MOMENTS, and I feel sometimes when connecting with people.

    I know a lot of you are the same way.

    That’s why I’m fascinated by DR. MARISA FRANCO, who has spent years studying FRIENDSHIP in incredible detail.

    There’s so much good stuff to unpack this week…

    FRIENDSHIPS TAKE WORK, and even people who make friends easily can make regrettable mistakes. No matter who you are, listen to what Dr. Franco has to say about CHARACTERISTICS of what makes a great friendship, then ask yourself how many of those boxes you check.

    If you don’t check enough of them, you may find people you thought were your friends starting to GHOST YOU, which Dr. Franco also gets into.

    We’re also going to talk about the PHYSICAL NEED FOR FRIENDS as well. You may not realize it, but friendship has a lot more benefits than simply improving your EMOTIONAL health. This is part of Dr. Franco’s larger overall look at the science of friendships and how they affect your work, sense of self, and many other parts of who you are.

    Want to know how to make friends as an ADULT?

    How to be friends with people you DISAGREE with?

    Or how SELF-LOVE affects friendships?

    And one of my favorite parts of this week’s show…

    How can you deal with “value-based” friends versus adding authentic friendships to your life?

    My FRIENDLY ADVICE to you this week is to pay close attention to Dr. Franco’s wisdom on a subject that we sometimes take for granted.

    And let me leave you with this…

    PROVERBS 27 says, in part, “Do not forsake your friend and the friend of your father, and do not go to your brother's house when disaster strikes you-- better a neighbor nearby than a brother far away.”

    Conquer Your Everest & Unlock Your Best Life w/ Colin O’Brady

    Conquer Your Everest & Unlock Your Best Life w/ Colin O’Brady

    If you want to know what it’s like to CHALLENGE yourself under the most EXTREME conditions, you’re in for a treat this week.

    This episode will flat out HELP you with mental toughness, peace and resiliency. While simultaneously challenging your perspective on life.

    Colin is an American adventurer and one of the top professional endurance athletes in the world. He’s repeatedly proven it, setting a SEVEN SUMMITS speed record by climbing the highest mountain on each of the seven continents. He also set the speed record for the EXPLORERS GRAND SLAM CHALLENGE, which adds reaching the North and South Poles to the Seven Summits challenge. He’s one of only about 50 people ever to complete this challenge. And he also set the speed record for the 50 US HIGH POINTS, completing that grind in just 21 days.

    What drives a person to test themselves like this?

    How can you take Colin’s bad-ass mindset and apply it to conquer the mountains in your life?

    Colin is going to tell you how he did it. You’ll learn a lot about what it takes to overcome MENTALLY, PHYSICALLY, AND EMOTIONALLY what many people think impossible.

    Listen to Colin’s take on the nature of discomfort and why people get stuck in a ZONE OF COMFORTABLE COMPLACENCY.

    His story about climbing K2, the second tallest peak in the world, is RIVETING, especially knowing that many people die trying, including climbers Colin knows.

    You’ll also hang on every word about how Colin walked across hundreds of miles of ANTARCTICA over 54 days in sub-zero weather while hauling a 375-pound sled.

    For Colin, much of his success comes from trusting his GUT INSTINCTS and why it’s critical to focus on the story we tell ourselves. That AWARENESS OF SELF makes all things possible only when you make them the RIGHT STORIES.

    Some extreme challenges we look for, and others find us, like it or not. After trying to jump a kerosine-soaked rope in Thailand, Colin burned his legs horribly and was told he might never walk again. Hear how he FOUGHT through the mental fear and physical pain on a long road to recovery.

    What mountains do you want to climb?

    Listen to how Colin has done it repeatedly and use his lessons to reach your own PEAK PERFORMANCE.

    Walking Miracle: Mindset That Overcame Paralysis w/ Ryan Shazier

    Walking Miracle: Mindset That Overcame Paralysis w/ Ryan Shazier

    here are NO GUARANTEES in life.

    There are only TRIUMPHS and SETBACKS.

    My guest this week, RYAN SHAZIER, knows this all too well.

    His story is EXTRAORDINARY.

    In a single moment, he went from living his best life as an NFL linebacker to the challenge of simply trying to walk again.

    If you’ve ever had sudden and traumatic challenges turn your life upside down, you must hear Ryan’s story. Because this week, you’re going to learn how one man turned a potential tragedy into a NEW BEGINNING.

    Ryan was an Ohio State Buckeye who was a first-round draft pick at linebacker by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2014. He quickly starred in the league, earning a trip to the PRO BOWL in 2016. But during the 2017 season, he made a headfirst tackle that left him unable to move his legs. Ryan underwent spinal stabilization surgery giving him the tools he needed to heal.

    His new book, WALKING MIRACLE, goes into detail about what he went through and was a must read for me as soon as I got a copy.

    Ryan spares no details in what he had to deal with after hearing news that he was paralyzed. But along with his mom and dad, Ryan worked hard to create the POSITIVE MINDSET he would need to start healing.

    The GOOD NEWS is that surgery worked, and eventually Ryan did walk again. In fact, 17 months after the injury he danced at his own wedding.

    But his NFL career was over. His identity was stripped away. And while he experienced the SUPREME TRIUMPH OF WALKING AGAIN, the setback of no longer playing the game he loved meant he had to pivot.

    Ryan’s account of how he went from a pro athlete to a businessman is full of lessons you can use in your own life. He’ll tell you how he was NEVER RESENTFUL and why that was so critical to MOVE FORWARD, instead of living in a past that no longer existed.

    There are so many great nuggets of WISDOM in his words that you must hear, especially Ryan’s advice for making a COMEBACK after a traumatic life experience.

    Ryan Shazier embodies what it takes to OVERCOME tragic events in your life.

    His story will move you, and for those of you who need it, also help HEAL you too.

    Start Living Life On Your Terms w/ Eric Thomas

    Start Living Life On Your Terms w/ Eric Thomas

    I think the internet might just break this week. The energy and inspiration level on this week's show is unprecedented, on any podcast ever!

    Because this week, my guest is none other than my dear friend, DR. ERIC THOMAS.

    The last time he was on my show, it became one of the MOST DOWNLOADED episodes ever.

    If you’ve ever been down in life, and thought that the odds were stacked so high against you that you’d never pull through, you need to hear Eric’s story.

    It will INSPIRE you. Give you HOPE. And help LEAD you out of your own challenges to a better life that’s waiting for you on the other side.

    Eric is known as the HIP-HOP PREACHER, and his talks are legendary. He works with Fortune 500 companies and pro sports teams, and has a new book, YOU OWE YOU, Igniting Your Power, Your Purpose, and Your Why.

    Eric dropped out of high school and spent time even living on the streets before meeting a minister who changed his life completely, eventually leading him to earn his Ph.D. a few years later.

    We’re also going to talk about something I believe in a lot…discovering and using your UNIQUE SUPERPOWERS. As you’ll hear, it’s not enough to figure out what those superpowers are, you must go out and WORK AT THEM to live the life you were meant to live.

    Eric also has great insights about finding the EXTRINSIC and INTRINSIC fuel you need to create electric ENERGY in your life.

    I also couldn’t have my friend on and not have him talk about PRAYING, LISTENING TO THE LORD, and connecting to your CONFIDENCE as part of your FAITH JOURNEY.

    Eric also has got great insights on putting yourself in MIRACLE territories, why YOU OWE YOU everything, and how people wrestle with overcoming IMPOSTER SYNDROME.

    Listen to this SERMON from start to finish.

    Finding The Strength Within To Never Give Up w/ David A. Arnold

    Finding The Strength Within To Never Give Up w/ David A. Arnold


    So what is “That Thing“ you gotta have about you in order to be successful?

    To separate from the pack?

    To make a dream a reality?

    This week you are gonna hear from someone who knows.


    My guest this week is David A. Arnold.

    Not only is he a brilliant standup comedian, David channels his life’s observations as a SITCOM WRITER, PRODUCER, and ACTOR as well.

    After I watched his Netflix special, IT AIN’T FOR THE WEAK, and laughed my ass off, I made it a big priority to get him on the show. When you hear his takes on life, parenting, hard knocks, and more, you’ll understand why.

    This is a man with a lot of takes you’re going to love hearing about.

    Part of what I love about him is that David struggled in the backwaters of comedy for a long time before he broke through. He’s used the TRAGEDY and PATHOS in his life to fuel a brand of comedy that is INSPIRATIONAL for everyone going through stuff right now… which is basically all of us.

    He’s blowing up now after working in the business for more than 25 YEARS, building an impressive resume as one of the MOST SUCCESSFUL people in front of and behind the camera in the entertainment business. When you hear David talk about his WORK ETHIC, you’ll know there were no shortcuts to him earning everything he’s achieved.

    David’s source of strength through it all has been his connection to his family. Not only are they sources for a lot of his material, they’re also what drives him to keep working at “THAT THING” as he likes to refer to it.

    David gets into why it’s important to REFUSING TO LIVE WITH EXCUSES or challenges you faced growing up. It’s a fascinating look at someone who’s overcome unusual family dynamics, addiction, and being incarcerated (for a fix-it ticket!). As you’ll hear, BREAKING THROUGH is not for the weak.

    We’re also going to talk about David’s creative process for generating material, how he deals with imposter syndrome, and having A WILL TO SUCCEED that’s not for sale. The bottom line is that making people laugh is HARD WORK.

    You can’t talk to David for an hour and not touch on KIDS and MARRIAGE. David’s down-to-earth take on both is filled with spot on insights that will make your life and your family relationships better.

    We are going to wrap up with advice on other parts of your life David wants you to know about too.

    You’re gonna LAUGH this week.

    You’re gonna THINK about what you hear too.

    David A. Arnold has got the goods.

    So listen up…

    This is a FASCINATING hour with a man who has used a lifetime of paying his dues to create a universal WISDOM that’s perfect advice for us all.

    Blueprint For Better Relationships w/ John Kim

    Blueprint For Better Relationships w/ John Kim

    I hope you’re ready to have your eyes opened to some INTENSE AND UNCONVENTIONAL relationship advice because THE ANGRY THERAPIST is in the house this week.

    JOHN KIM is my guest, and for the next hour, we’re not just talking about relationships with other people. We’re going to peel back what makes you tick and talk about THE RELATIONSHIP YOU HAVE WITH YOURSELF.

    You can tell John’s approach to therapy and relationships is different just on the titles of the best sellers he’s published…I USED TO BE A MISERABLE F*CK and SINGLE. ON PURPOSE. And he’s got a new title coming out called IT’S NOT ME, IT’S YOU, which may be his best work yet.

    Tell me those don’t make you CURIOUS about what John’s got to say.

    I love John’s work because he makes people turn relationship analysis INWARD, where most people refuse to spend enough time. It’s so easy to point blame at others when relationships go bad, but often the worst enemy is THE PERSON WE SEE IN THE MIRROR every morning.

    Pay attention to what John has to say about his concept of SELF vs Self. It’s the key to how you can change your life to live INSIDE OUT instead of OUTSIDE IN. You’re also going to learn more about the internal dialogs you have with your SOLID SELF vs your PSEUDO SELF.

    LOVE is amazing, but love isn’t perfect. John is going to tell you how we’re challenged because we're taught that love looks like CODEPENDENCY ... and we all know the pitfalls of codependency in all parts of our lives.

    As part of his contrarian thinking, John also doesn’t believe in THE ONE. Instead, he explains why THE ONE IN FRONT OF YOU is the most important relationship you can possibly have.

    That leads us to talk about different ATTACHMENT STYLES, finding beauty in each other’s CONTRASTS, and loving your partner like IT’S GOING TO END AT ANY TIME.

    And no discussion about relationships would be complete without John’s takes of RED FLAGS vs. DEAL BREAKERS and how you should deal with DISHONESTY and COMPARISONS in a relationship. You’re also going to get an education on what to do if you’re not feeling “IT” anymore.

    After you listen to John’s wisdom, spend some time thinking more about what you can do to IMPROVE THE RELATIONSHIPS in your life, especially the relationship you have with YOURSELF.

This podcast is FIRE!

This podcast is FIRE!

The Ed Mylett Show is one of the inspirational podcasts I've listened to.

I've been listening to it for about 6 months now, and Ed really brings that best our his guests. He has a natural ability to get them to share the raw truth of what it really takes to be successful.

7 BIG takeaways I learnt from listening.

1. In business, you win when you run a big enough sample size. Most people quit before they get a big enough sample size to see their offers.

2. People who have confidence WIN. You must work on this daily and keep updating your brain software ;-)

3. Work smarter and harder! People who have the combination of hard works and ability win.

4. The quality of your life is directly proportionate to the amount of uncertainty you can handle.

5. Other people aren't thinking about you, so stop trying to get other people approval.

6. Vision pulls you. Your WHY is 70,000 times more powerful than HOW.

7. People with the best habits WIN!
