    Hope Zvara: Breath – Body – Belief

    Hope Zvara: Breath – Body – Belief

    About this episode
    My special guest for this episode is Hope Zvara.  Hope helps people, just like you, breathe and enjoy life again.  Her goal is to help you reach your full potential so you don't have to struggle to find what works because that can be frustrating.   In this episode, we talked openly about Hope's eating disorder that she struggled with for years, and how yoga became her weekly ritual of second chances for her to get her life together.  Hope also shared her heartbreaking story of losing her daughter Faith, after only 20 minutes here on Earth, and the lessons she's learned from that experience that she can use every single day of her life.
    One Big Takeaway
    You can cultivate tools and skills in yoga, like breathing and learning how to shift your mind's focus, and learning how to live in your body.  That means learning how to be OK with the skin that you're in regardless of the thoughts and feelings you're having in that moment.  This is critical in a yoga practice where you learn about being in the moment and staying in a yoga pose even if you don't feel comfortable and even if you might not like it.  This is a mirror for everyday life when we're in situations we don't like or aren't comfortable with, and have to learn how to let those feelings pass.  You can learn these skills on the yoga mat and then take them off the mat.
    Be Grateful
    Hope expressed gratitude for her husband, and had some very kind words to say about him.

    Sheila Viers – Rock Your Dream Life

    Sheila Viers – Rock Your Dream Life

    About this episode
    My special guest for this episode is Sheila Viers.  Sheila is a Health and Lifestyle Coach that is passionate about helping women break free from yo-yo dieting and self-sabotage so they can rock their dream body and their dream life.  In this episode, we talked a lot about Sheila's journey of taking the leap out of the corporate world and starting her own business, her difficult decision to sell Live Well 360 and her own struggles of not feeling good enough and being locked in "body jail" and how she finally broke free.
    One Big Takeaway
    Every experience along the way in your journey that doesn't go your way is not a failure.  It's a stepping stone to becoming the person that can handle what you are now creating.  And if you wouldn't have had those experiences...those struggles - with business, with risk, with real life challenges, then you wouldn't have that perspective that you have today with whatever venture you're working on.  Whether its running a business, helping others or even rocking your dream life, no matter what happens, you can figure things out.  Be resourceful and come up with a solution that probably will be better than your original ideas anyway.
    Be Grateful
    Sheila expressed gratitude for her mom, and had some very kind words to say about her.

    Preston Smiles – Love Louder

    About this episode
    My special guest for this episode is Preston Smiles, a messenger of love.  Preston's mission is to empower, inspire and ignite a multigenerational movement of radical growth through conscious, creative content, acts of love and living boldly.  We cover a lot in this episode including how Preston has turned some of his biggest pains into his greatest gains, a recent time he was down and struggling and he overcame it, the mis-perception that personal development coaches are always happy and his favorite habit for loving himself more.  He also gave us 3 action steps to take for those of us that are struggling and in a dark place.
    One big takeaway
    Change your thoughts, change your story, change your actions, change your life.  Our perspective creates our perception.  Our perception creates our beliefs.  Our beliefs create our behavior.  Our behavior creates our experience.  Our experience creates our reality and our reality creates our next perspective.  This cycle continues all the time.  Until something comes in and shakes that up, you will be in this same cycle year after year.

    Jeff Sanders – The 5 AM Miracle

    Jeff Sanders – The 5 AM Miracle

    About this episode
    Our special guest is Jeff Sanders of The 5 AM Miracle podcast and his book The 5 AM Miracle - Dominate Your Day Before Breakfast.   Jeff began waking up at 5 am when he started training for a marathon and this new habit stuck.  As long as we're intentional with our time and have a reason why you want to get up early and get your day started, anyone can create a new habit of getting up early, even late night owls.  His personal 5 am routine is always focused on energy production.  He even gave some great tips on how moms with super busy mornings can have their own 5 am miracle.
    One big takeaway
    Jeff began getting up early when he started to train for a marathon.  The only opportunity he had in his day to train was to wake up at 5 am and run before he went to work.  Well, he discovered that when he got to work at 9, he had so much more energy, and felt so much better and there was the potential to get a lot done in those hours that he had previously been wasting.  So he kept the routine of waking up early, even after his marathon ended.  You can make the switch and become an early riser when you're passionate about what it is you want to do with those hours.
