    The Secret Weapon to Sustainable Change

    The Secret Weapon to Sustainable Change

    20 years ago, a pivotal moment reshaped my entire life's trajectory. It wasn't about success or achievements—it was about the powerful, life-altering question a doctor asked me:

    “Do you want to walk your daughter down the aisle on her wedding day, Ed?”

    This episode dives into the heart of that story, Bella's wedding day, a narrative that didn't just save my life but holds the key to the blueprint for harnessing the power of emotional leverage to foster lasting change in any area of your life.

    I'm sharing this life-changing story and the 4 steps you can take to fuel lasting change including:

    - Pinpointing the deep-seated reasons that motivate and drive you, which are crucial for enduring change

    - Establishing powerful, emotional triggers that propel you forward and keep you committed to your goals

    - Utilizing leverage not just as a tool for success, but as a profound influencer in your personal transformation

    - Understanding the dynamic between seeking joy and avoiding pain, and how this balance can radically alter your path

    Each of us has our "Bella’s wedding day" questions—those deep, personal challenges or goals that define our paths. Join me, as we explore how to harness these transformative strategies to craft a future filled with health, happiness, and fulfillment and where our actions and choices align with our deepest values and desires.

    Rising from the Depths: Transformative Strategies to Conquer Grief

    You’re about to hear one of the most difficult but important interviews I’ve ever done. Recovering from the death of a loved one in the prime of their life is one of the most challenging things anyone can endure. But when that death is by suicide, and you’re a public figure with three children, the challenges are exponential.

    This week, I'm joined by Allison Holker, an extraordinary dancer known from "So You Think You Can Dance," who faced the unimaginable when her husband, Stephen “tWitch” Boss, tragically ended his own life. Allison's story is not just one of profound loss but also of resilience, healing, and the redemptive power of opening up about mental health.

    In this deeply personal and impactful discussion, Allison shares her ongoing journey through grief, providing insights that resonate with anyone facing their own battles with loss. This episode isn't just about coping with grief; it's about allowing grief to fuel personal growth and awareness.

    Here's what you'll gain from todays episode:


    Allison's insights on navigating heartache with children in the wake of loss



    The critical importance of giving and receiving love when you're naturally reserved



    How cherishing every second is a pathway to healing



    Strategies for slowly rebuilding your capacity for happiness and finding light after darkness.



    How viewing your life through a lens of beauty and appreciation can alter your healing journey



    The strength and comfort drawn from spiritual beliefs during the toughest times



    Managing relationships with those who give energy and those who take it away.


    Allison's openness offers hope and a roadmap for those navigating the murky waters of grief, particularly the unique sorrow that follows suicide. Her courage in sharing her story aims to light the way for others, emphasizing that while the pain might not completely vanish, the strength we discover in our darkest hours can lead to a personal transformation.

    Join us for a conversation that promises not just to touch your heart but also to offer real strategies for anyone dealing with grief to find a way forward.
