    Ep. 284: How To Really Simplify And Perform At The Highest Level W/ Dr. Juli La Rocca

    Ep. 284: How To Really Simplify And Perform At The Highest Level W/ Dr. Juli La Rocca

    Greetings, SuperFriends!
    Welcome to this week's episode, where we actually have a very special one for you! You've probably heard me talk about today's guest before, Dr. Juli La Rocca, as a star SuperLearner student, and then someone who also took my Branding You program, and has gone on to just become so successful and influential, do incredible things, and help people all over the place.
    Her story starts as a traditional Western medicine doctor who went from a lot of struggles, trials, tribulations, depression, suicidal thoughts, and much more as you'll discover, to learning, growing, changing, evolving, and becoming a coach to very successful people.
    She's an incredible woman, she's actually one of my coaches right now, and she has helped me through so many incredible breakthroughs in the last year that we've been working together. So, I thought I would bring her to all of you, because not only does she have an incredible story, and an incredible amount of wisdom to share, but she is the epitome of a SuperLearner, going from not knowing anything about the thought leader business - her words, not mine - to where she is now.
    Now, the student truly has become the teacher, and she is a valued coach of mine and teaches me so much about how to live my life and how to take good care of myself. So, again, I thought why hog all her wisdom for myself. I wanted to bring her to all of you, and we had an incredible conversation as we always do about life, about what's important, about different tools that you can use to perform at your highest level, and about simplifying, which I think is a really important thing that we all need to be thinking about right now.
    I heard an incredible quote the other day from a former Disney executive who said "in the rush to go back to normal, take time to consider which parts of normal are worth going back to". I think that is so profound. I think this podcast episode will help you think, and start that conversation with yourself. So it is with great pleasure that I introduce you all to Dr. Juli La Rocca.

    Ep. 283: Dr. Benjamin Hardy On Why Our Personality Really Isn't Permanent

    Ep. 283: Dr. Benjamin Hardy On Why Our Personality Really Isn't Permanent

    Greetings, SuperFriends!
    I am really excited about today's episode, where we are joined by Dr. Benjamin Hardy, who has become one of my closer friends and professional contacts. If you listen to the show, or anything that I do, you've heard me quote Dr. Hardy significantly over the past few years, since his work has become a massive influence on my life and the lives of those I care about.
    In this episode, we are going to talk about his new book: Personality Isn't Permanent. Throughout the episode, we talk about how much of that we think about personality is actually wrong. We learn how personality is actually formed, and how you can take an active role in designing the personality that you wish to have.
    Pretty exciting stuff, and I really enjoyed the episode - I'm sure you will as well. I would also consider it a personal favor if you went and bought a copy of Personality Isn't Permanent!
    Enjoy the episode!

    Ep. 282: The Best Way To Be More? Have Less W/ Courtney Carver

    Ep. 282: The Best Way To Be More? Have Less W/ Courtney Carver

    Greetings, SuperFriends!
    Today we are joined by Courtney Carver. Courtney is an expert in how you can be more with less.
    I know what you're thinking - "is this an episode on minimalism?" - but it is actually an episode on so, so much more. I really enjoyed this episode because we went wide on how you can simplify various different aspects of your life, why you might want to, and how to get started.
    This was really relevant for me in what I'm currently going through, trying to simplify my life, simplify my business, and just optimize for a new variable, which is happiness and health, as opposed to growing and achieving more.
    So I think you're really going to enjoy it. I certainly did. And if you do, let us know, send us a little tweet or hit us up on the Instagram machine.

    Ep. 281: How To Make Literally Anything Happen W/ Steve Sims

    Ep. 281: How To Make Literally Anything Happen W/ Steve Sims

    Greetings, SuperFriends!
    Do you know anyone that’s worked with Sir Elton John or Elon Musk, sent people down to see the wreck of the Titanic on the sea bed, or closed entire museums in Florence for a private dinner party and then had Andre Bocelli serenade them while they eat their pasta – well, you do now!
    Quoted as “The Real Life Wizard of Oz" by Forbes and Entrepreneur Magazine, Steve Sims is a best-selling author with "BLUEFISHING - the art of making things happen”, he is a sought-after consultant, and a speaker at a variety of networks, groups and associations as well as the Pentagon and Harvard – twice!
    He also is a friend of mine from Genius Network, and I think he is one of the most interesting human beings on the planet. This episode goes really wide, really far, and we talk about how can you make anything happen.
    Well, what does that mean? It means that you have things that you'd like to happen in your life, things you want to achieve, experiences you want to have, and we talk about how you can actually make them happen - with the person that has made a career for decades from making impossible things happen for people.
    And I know you expect that this is going to be another one of these episodes, where we just tell you to "try hard" and "know the right people", but no - you will be really surprised by what Steve has to say. Even me, Steve caught me multiple times going about things the wrong way, and he corrected me - and I love when someone brings to my attention how I can improve myself! Enjoy!

    How Attachment Theory & Reprogramming Your Subconscious Beliefs Will Change Your Life W/ Thais Gibson

    How Attachment Theory & Reprogramming Your Subconscious Beliefs Will Change Your Life W/ Thais Gibson

    Greetings, SuperFriends!
    Today we are joined by Thais Gibson. Thais is an author, speaker, and co-creator of the Personal Development School. She is, as you will see, extremely passionate about personal development and growth, specifically around the subconscious mind. She has an MA and 13 different certifications ranging from CBT to hypnosis, and in this episode, we covered a lot of them and learned about what Thais is probably most known for, which is her work and contributing research on attachment theory.
    Now, this isn't something that we've talked about on the show before, but it's something that has dramatically impacted my life. I read a book on attachment theory years and years ago, and it changed the trajectory of my life because it changed the way that I was going about looking for a healthy and happy relationship - something that I hope for each and every one of you in the audience.
    So we talk about that. We talk about how to understand where you are, the basics of the theory, and how it impacts you and your relationships. And then we got into another cool topic that we don't cover a lot on the show, which is hypnotherapy.
    Is it the real deal and how does it work? Why does it work? So I did not talk a lot in this episode. Thais is very passionate, knows what she is talking about, and so I just sit back and let her share knowledge bomb after knowledge bomb. I think you're really going to enjoy this episode.

    Ep. 279: How To Improve Your Average Through Communication w/ Michael Bernoff

    Ep. 279: How To Improve Your Average Through Communication w/ Michael Bernoff

    Greetings, SuperFriends!
    Today we are joined by one of my personal friends from Genius Network, Michael Bernoff, founder and president of the Human Communications Institute and author of "Average Sucks", coming out this week.
    Through the Human Communications Institute, Michael has helped thousands of people transform their lives and raise their personal average through his signature events, audio seminars, one-on-one coaching, and more. He combines his natural talent as a communicator, his deep understanding of motivation, and a powerful ability to tap into virtually anyone's desire for success to unlock the mysteries to building charisma, influence, persuasion, and connection with others.
    He's also created Human Interaction Technology(HIT), an innovative teaching method. And today, in this episode, we talk about all of that, but we more specifically talk about how to raise your average and why communication is the hidden secret behind anything you want to get in life.
    I really enjoyed the episode. I think you'll see that I learned a lot, and I know you will as well. Enjoy!

Midwest Mama loves this podcast!

I am only 4 episodes into this podcast, but I am really enjoying it! Found it from Ben Greenfield’s podcast! As a mom with toddlers contemplating my education philosophies, I’ve enjoyed the focus on how we learn and how we develop change-makers in this world! Loved the plant based eating discussion about great gut health, keep it up!

My Favorite Kind of Educational Content

I've been listening to this podcast for 2 years (sorry it's taken me so long to leave a review!!!) and it ticks all of the boxes for me. Entertaining *check*! Makes me want to better myself *check*! Introduces me to new experts *check*! That's just to name a few. Jonathan always asks questions that catalyze the best conversations. Because of this podcast, I've tried intermitant fasting and dietary supplements, questioned the products I use, and become overall inspired to do more with myself. Thank you, Jonathan!

Dan the Nutrition Man ,

Totally binge worthy!

Thank you for doing what you do! I recently found your podcast as I’ve been exploring memory training and personal development during the quarantine. I’ve been listening to a couple episodes every day (on 2x speed) during my morning dog walk and absolutely love the content with real, actionable take-always! I’ll be purchasing the SuperLearner course once I am able to get back to work. Keep up the outstanding work and I can’t wait to see how far my brain can take me!
