    There was a time in my life when I was completely debilitated by anxiety. Fortunately, I have put in a lot of work over the years and studied to understand neurochemically what was happening to me when anxiety would step in to ruin the day. In this Q & A, I am answering 6 common questions about anxiety and laying out the exact process I use and the logic you’ll need to start mastering your own anxiety with time and effort. I remember how hopeless I felt and I now know how simple and effective some of these tips are to put into practice. Action cures all and the sooner you implement these tips the sooner you can start to feel superhuman and reach your true potential.

    You can probably come up with a thousand reasons to explain your chronic procrastination. You got really thirsty, couldn’t get started until you walked the dog, and for sure laundry had to get done and when someone needs help you can’t ignore them!

    Why are you procrastinating though …really?

    Boredom, lack of excitement, not working on things that give you fulfillment, not feeling qualified and lacking skills may be behind some of your awesome reasons for procrastination, but how the heck do you beat it?

    Tom is about to break down procrastination and 7 things you can tackle starting NOW to stop procrastinating and start having a more fulfilling and meaningful life. Dealing with procrastination is going to take an action plan that takes control of your life, forces you to put some rules in place, and will also force you to be super HONEST with yourself about where you are.

    This sh*t isn’t going to be comfortable but it’s going to be more rewarding than you can imagine. So put laziness, poor diet, and bad sleep habits in the past, and let’s get to work!

    You’re going to start working towards something you actually care about, you’re going to optimize your environment, get rules in place and start rewarding yourself when you start crushing it. Do the 7 DAY ACTION PLAN to stop procrastinating and watch your life change in ways you only dream of.

    The economic winter no one wants is here, and if you’re not snowboarding you may be standing still frozen, in denial, or completely unaware. It’s time to get your mindset around being recession proof.

    “In times of recession there are massive opportunities and fortunes to be made, so for new up and coming entrepreneurs, this is the time to go and start a business.” -Richard Branson

    Over the last few years we’ve dealt with many challenges as a society and many more as individuals, and one thing is for sure, you either saw opportunity, you retreated and gave into anxiety, or you froze and did nothing. During COVID, businesses were lost, and businesses were made.

    Dean Graziosi has been around for well over 25 years experiencing the economic cycles, business cycles, and life’s cycles. He’s joining Tom in this episode to share his experiences through his own real life difficulties to remind you to get your mindset around the reality of the economic situation going on, and decide how you’re going to respond.

    How you get through this storm is your decision. This recession doesn’t have to be all dark skies and gloom, when you’re armed with the right information. Join Dean Graziosi and Tony Robbins 5 Day Challenge, Time to Thrive in August to give yourself the advantage we all need.

    “Time to put the ship in the storm. The next level of me lives on the other side.” [19:23]

    “What if on the other side of that storm is the man or woman you’re designed to be? Wouldn’t it be worth that storm?” [22:24]

    “I’m scared to death but I’m going anyway.” [27:21]

    “Anxiety is this double edged sword. It is the reason that I’ve had the kind of success that I’ve had.” Tom Bilyeu [29:12]

Undescribably inspiring

Every single episode I watch I feel it adding value to my life, even if its mostly subconsciously. Thank you Tom Bilyeu, and his team ofcourse, for doing what y'all do, to work towards aggregating together a long list of jaw-dropping, inspiring, and motivating speakers; and relentlessly maintaining life-changing conversations.

Don't take my word for it. See it for youself; as nothing I could say, atleast for the time being; would come anywhere close to serving it justice by description.

Same episode

In the last few months it’s been alot of reuploads it seems at this point it’s just to gather more clicks and get some extra cash from the ads

Solo's Girl ,

Do you really want to have Political Ads?

Hey, I only just recently started listening to your show, and have found a lot of value in the conversations with your guests, and have really appreciated your candor in sharing personal life experiences. I am willing to put up with listening to ads before and during the podcast episodes, as that enables consumers like myself to enjoy your content for “free”. However, at the 1:07 mark of today’s episode, “How to Master Your Negative Thoughts, And Use Them For Good,” it was incredibly, and unexpectedly, off putting to hear a political ad. The “Impact” it caused? At first, I thought my phone had somehow left your podcast and I was listening to some kind of conservative radio station. But no. It was your show. It was an ad, not just promoting a candidate, but also criticizing the candidate I supported and continue to support (therefore criticizing my values as well). It just felt like an unnecessary jab, and one I don’t intend to just “put up with” in order to enjoy your content. I know it’s my choice to unsubscribe; and it’s your show, so you can air whatever ads you’d like. But seriously, do you really want to have political ads impacting your audience’s interaction with your content? I hope you will reconsider that decision. Thanks for the opportunity to share my thoughts. Wishing you all the best.
