    How to Stop Worrying What Other People Think of You

    How to Stop Worrying What Other People Think of You

    Most of us don’t like to admit that we worry about what other people think of us, but it’s definitely something I’ve struggled with.
    Have you ever stopped to consider the impact that worrying what others think has on you, such as causing stress, perpetuating insecurity, and hurting your self-confidence?
    How nice would it be to go through life without being deterred by anyone else’s opinion of you?
    In today’s episode, we’re exploring the problems with worrying what others think and I’m giving you three (3) powerful cures to overcome that worry, so you can confidently and completely be your authentic self—regardless of what anyone else thinks.  
    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    The subtle but significant difference between worrying what people think and caring what people think. Why fear of imperfection stops us from being our authentic selves. How worry creates unhealthy levels of stress, perpetuates insecurity, creates fear, and hurts our self-confidence. How to empower yourself by taking responsibility for your own experience and no one else’s. Three (3) cures to stop worrying by remembering that everyone is far more concerned with themselves than they are with you. Get The Full Show Notes

    Harnessing the Power of Nature

    Harnessing the Power of Nature

    How much time do you spend in nature compared to how much time you spend indoors, staring at a screen?
    I recently realized that my screen-to-nature ratio was way out of balance, and so I decided to do something about it.
    In today’s podcast episode, I’m inviting you to take two simple actions in the next 24 hours—one of which I’ve been doing for years to naturally heal my body, and another that has recently become a game changer for me in ways I could have never predicted.
    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    How spending time in nature lowers stress, reduces anxiety and depression, improves your short-term memory, boosts creativity, and recharges batteries. What “earthing” or “grounding” is and how to do it. Why I started meditating outdoors in the evening as the sun sets–and how it helps me fall asleep in a peak mental and emotional state. How to make a commitment to try these techniques right now. Get The Full Show Notes

    Evolving Toward Emotional Enlightenment

    Evolving Toward Emotional Enlightenment

    What does it mean to move from emotional reactivity to Emotional Enlightenment? How do you go from unconsciously allowing outside forces to determine your emotional state to consciously choosing which emotion best serves you in any given moment or situation?
    For over 20 years, this has been an area of focus for me. I’ve learned how to accept what I can’t change, to experience painful emotions in a state of peace and extract maximum value from them, and move on as soon as it makes sense to do so.
    In this episode, I want to share with you why Emotional Enlightenment matters. I want to talk about the tools and paradigms that helped me take control of my emotional state, teach you how to optimize yours, and give you the opportunity to experience a guided emotional optimization meditation–something I’ve never done on the podcast before.
    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Why every painful emotion we’ve ever experienced is self-created. How the five-minute rule and the Can’t Change It philosophy led to breakthroughs in my life. Why being in a state of peace diminishes our emotional pain and makes tragedy, trauma, and loss easier to navigate. How emotional invincibility can become a handicap–and the extraordinary challenge I faced that led me to emotional enlightenment. How emotional optimization meditation works, why I love it, and how to do it. Get The Full Show Notes

    The GAP and the GAIN with Dr. Benjamin Hardy

    The GAP and the GAIN with Dr. Benjamin Hardy

    Most people, especially highly ambitious people, are unhappy because of how they measure their progress. We all have an “ideal,” a moving target that is always out of reach. When we measure ourselves against that ideal, we’re in “the GAP.” However, when we measure ourselves against our previous selves, we’re in “the GAIN.” Today’s guest, Dr. Benjamin Hardy, is one of my all-time favorite authors. In his new book, The GAP and the GAIN: The High Achievers' Guide to Happiness, Confidence, and Success, he delivers a masterclass on positive psychology, healthy relationships, mental well-being, and high-performance. He explores why unsuccessful, unhappy people focus on “the GAP,” but successful, happy people focus on “the GAIN.”
    In this conversation, Benjamin makes his third appearance on the podcast to talk about how to stop focusing on the GAP and turn your biggest hurdles into massive gains, and what you can do to stay in the GAIN each and every day.
    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Why associating our emotional well-being with targets that are out of reach sets us up to be chronically unhappy. Why you don’t need to make millions of dollars to be in the GAIN. How to reframe a situation to shift your focus and emphasize the positive. Why focusing on the GAIN is not the same thing as dismissing pain or disappointment. Why we’re always moving beyond our former selves–and life as a whole takes on whatever meaning you give to it. And much more… Get The Full Show Notes

    How To Use Your Miracle Morning to Write a Book with Chandler Bolt

    If you’ve ever wanted to write a book, whether that’s to increase your income, to positively impact people’s lives, grow your business, or leave a legacy—even if you aren’t sure what to write about or don’t consider yourself to be a good writer—you won’t want to miss today’s podcast!
    You may have heard me say this before, but writing and self-publishing a book (The Miracle Morning) was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. (My wife agrees!) It increased both my impact and our income, providing financial security for my family and enabling me to help millions of people around the world with my message. I believe that if I can do it, so can you.
    On today’s podcast I’m joined by my dear friend, 7-time bestselling author and founder of Self-Publishing School, Chandler Bolt, to talk about WHY and HOW you can go from blank page to published author in as little as 90 days (writing for only 30 minutes per day).
    In this conversation, you’ll learn why publishing a book can change your life, how to apply your Miracle Morning to write your very first book, and why your current Miracle Morning practice gives you an incredible head start with what can be a daunting process. (Note: I wrote The Miracle Morning during my Miracle Mornings!)
    * ANNOUNCEMENT *
    Before you listen to today's episode, I have an exciting announcement to share with you. Next week, I’ll be co-hosting a live online masterclass (at no cost to you) with Chandler Bolt. This live masterclass is for aspiring authors who want to write a book and want a step-by-step roadmap to get it done in as little as 90 days!
    The live training is on April 19th at 12 PM EST. You can reserve your spot right now by visiting Self-PublishingSchool.com/Hal.
    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Why you (yes, YOU) should write a book. How to determine what your book should be about—especially if you feel like you have too many ideas (or none at all). How becoming an author helps you to become an authority in your field. How to think about marketing and launching your first book. Why a book is the best business card you can share with prospects as you start or grow a business. Get The Full Show Notes

    Your Last Bad Day with Michael O’Brien

    Your Last Bad Day with Michael O’Brien

    Michael O’Brien’s last bad day was July 11th, 2001. Riding his bike in New Mexico, he was hit head on by an SUV traveling 40 miles per hour and left crippled on the side of the road. 
    “I remember the sound of me hitting his grill… the thud I made as I crashed onto the asphalt below, and the screech of his brakes.”
    Wanting to make the best of the situation, Michael promised himself that if he survived, he’d stop trying to chase happiness and begin truly enjoying every day—a profound lesson we can all learn from.
    In today’s episode, Michael shares the story of what happened on his last bad day and how he reframed his situation over the course of several months to heal his mind and body. We dive into how he discovered Pause-Breathe-Reflect meditation, what his daily practice looks like, and how you can immediately begin applying his mindset to your life.
    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    How changing the conversations we have with ourselves helps us become more compassionate when we talk with others. Why Michael had to shift his mindset to truly heal after his accident–and how the day of his injury became his last bad day. Why all events in our lives are neutral until we label them–and how Michael processes bad, angry, and sad moments in his life without letting them define his experience. Why Michael does something monumental on the anniversary of his injury every year–and why he’s going on a 4,300 mile bike ride from Astoria, Oregon to Yorktown, Virginia this summer.
