    Behavior Modification Isn't True Transformation with Rob Lohman - Episode 274

    Behavior Modification Isn't True Transformation with Rob Lohman - Episode 274

    Episode 274 is about getting over your addiction.

    Some addictive behaviors are harmless, but for the most part they're destructive. How can you break free from these patterns? Rob Lohman, previously an alcoholic and now turned to a great coach on addiction, deals with this topic. He explains this in his upcoming book Addiction Intervention.

    Did you know that addiction is hereditary? Epigenetics has everything to do with it. Just because you feel there's something wrong with you, doesn't mean there actually is! What really matters most, though, is how we respond to our addictions; how they are transformed within us.

    Do you want to overcome addiction? Our Men on Purpose community can help you with how to break these patterns. Follow us on this journey at https://ianlobas.com/podcast/

    Alignment is the Only Assignment with Eric Bigger - Episode 273

    Alignment is the Only Assignment with Eric Bigger - Episode 273

    Episode 273 is about trusting your intuition.

    Everything you've ever wanted is on the other side of fear. Eric Bigger—former superstar from the 13th season of The Bachelorette and entrepreneur turned coach—got over his fear to pursue what he wanted. As a child, Eric was observant; he didn't follow in the footsteps of his drug-dealing, absentee father. Instead, Eric listened to his intuition which guided him towards a more successful life. He started reading books, watching podcasts, attending masterminds and buying courses. In this episode, Eric will share how to tap into your intuition for success!

    Do you want to overcome fear? Our Men on Purpose community can help you with how to conquer your fears. Follow us on this journey at https://ianlobas.com/podcast/

    Beginning the Journey to Actually Living On Purpose with David Richman - Episode 272

    Beginning the Journey to Actually Living On Purpose with David Richman - Episode 272

    Episode 272 is about connecting with yourself.

    When we look at the mirror, what do we see? David Richman found out who he really was—a man who used to be overweight and chain-smoke until his eventual transformation back into himself. He grew up with a mother hating him, despite everything he did to love her. He used this as a motivation to become a better version of himself. When he looked at his reflection in the mirror, one day and asked Who am I?—his entire life changed.

    He never trained for an IronMan Triathlon, but instead just went ahead and did it. Same with quitting smoking cold turkey. He rode his bicycle nearly 5 thousand miles across the US - all while telling stories about his journey through this best-selling book called Cycle of Lives, which has given hope to thousands of people who were struggling with mental illness and trauma. This is one ‘pedal to the metal’ episode that will inspire you.

    We all go through cycles in life. Do you feel like you're lost and don't know your whole identity? Our Men on Purpose community can help you with how to find yourself. Follow us on this journey at https://ianlobas.com/podcast/

    Seeing the Blessings in Disguise with Christian Elliott - Episode 271

    Seeing the Blessings in Disguise with Christian Elliott - Episode 271

    Episode 271 is about finding the blessing.

    There are moments when we think things will always go our way. But suddenly, BOOM! they're gone. In one instance, Christian Elliott had it all—a successful business and money in the bank too. Problems arose and his company went bankrupt. He didn't let his loss become too much for him. Rather than relying solely on prayer or waiting for miracles to occur— he did something about it. And along the way, he found himself.

    Starting with a clean slate, everything was perfect. His wife supported him; his children inspired him. He listened to podcasts and read books—anything to improve himself. And then it suddenly clicked: he had figured out what was wrong, but now wasn't the time for celebrating. There were still plenty of hurdles ahead on this lifelong path toward being a better version of himself.

    This can be your story too. This episode is where we prove that anybody can turn their life around and find a better version.

    Especially if you feel like you are stuck in a rut. Our Men on Purpose community can help you with how to cope in times of trouble. Follow us on this journey at https://ianlobas.com/podcast/

    Transforming Grief, Finding Purpose with Phil Cohen - Episode 270

    Transforming Grief, Finding Purpose with Phil Cohen - Episode 270

    Episode 270 is about dealing with grief.

    Sometimes life isn't all about rainbows and butterflies. We are faced with tragedy. Phil Cohen lost his 14-year-old son in an accident. His son went on a ferry trip and a storm came by and they never came back. The coast guards searched for 7 days, still, no bodies were found. Those 7 days were grueling to Phil, he was in the storm with him during those 7 days.

    Griefing is a difficult process. We don't know how or what to feel. We get lost on what to do. Phil, after a long time healed. He heard his son's voice telling him to let go and live his life and that's what he did. You all know what they say, when you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about. Are you prepared for the storms you are about to encounter? Watch this episode now.

    ABRACADABRA: With These Words I Create My Life with Mark England - Episode 269

    ABRACADABRA: With These Words I Create My Life with Mark England - Episode 269

    Episode 269 is all about not being a victim.


    Abracadabra. We all know this word as 'magic' but in Aramaic, it means 'with my word I create or with my word I influence'. By Webster's definition of a spell is a word or a combination of words of great influence. Basically, we’re talking magic. Mark England, who is a beast of a coach, entrepreneur, TEDx speaker, you name it, the whole 9 yards shares his experiences on how we can tweak our words and stories to change the narrative in our minds thus changing our actions, perspective and self-talk.

    According to the Bible in the beginning was the word. What we say or speak to others and ourselves affects us mentally and emotionally. The story you tell yourself is how your life goes. The formula is simple, you tweak the words, you tweak your attitude, you tweak your attitude, and your whole life changes. BOOM! So pack your shit up, cause we're going in for a ride. Don't miss this badass episode and learn the importance and power of words.

    Self Talk = Self Care. Our Men on Purpose community can help you with positive affirmations that will help you with your overall well-being. Follow us on this journey at https://ianlobas.com/podcast/
