    Absence vs Abundance

    Absence vs Abundance

    When you think about your life do you see absence or abundance? Sometimes the problems of our days add up to distract us from the fact that we have a lot more blessing than curses. Let's talk about how to reframe our perspective to focus on what's going right in our lives vs what's going wrong. Is it easy? No, to be honest. But it is worth it.

    If The End is The Beginning, Then We Begin Again

    If The End is The Beginning, Then We Begin Again

    It's alive! IT'S ALIVE!! The Motivation Report returns! And on Halloween, what a perefect day to resurrect it from the dead and give it new life like Frankensein's monster. This time, I'm doing this for me. Let's learn to grow together through the magic of relating to one another's specifics and authenticity, and not by trying to please others or appeal to the masses. I tried that for a long time and it didn't work. So starting now, MREP returns to bring you some thought provoking topics at my leisure. But I always promise to remain thought provoking, encouraing, and inspiring. Or at least, I can only hope that's how I come across!

    The End is the Beginning

    The End is the Beginning

    After almost 4 years and 69 episodes, The Motivation Report has reached its final chapter. It has been an undeniably incredible adventure in producing this show. And before I moved on to something new, it was important to me to give the show the ending it deserves. I am a sucker for a good ending, after all.
    I am so filled with gratitude for your listenership, for sharing these life lessons I've learned along the way. Because, as it turns out, in the end the lessons were not just mine to impart to you. They were also mine to learn. I have become a better man because of this show. Because of you. Thank you for listening. Thank you for supporting. Thank you for writing in. It will always be one of the most important creative projects of my life. Where I am going I could not have gone, without The Motivation Report. And without you. So, wherever that may be, I hope you'll join me on that next adventure.

    The Necessity of Suffering

    The Necessity of Suffering

    Is it possible to entirely eliminate suffering from your life? And even if you could, what would your life ACTUALLY look like? We tend to think that finding happiness or peace within our lives requires the elimination suffering. But if there were no bad day, how could we know and appreciate the good days? Suffering isn't simply a byproduct of bad decisions, it is a necessity in life. Unfortunately, you will suffer. But if you can find the tools to help you properly deal with that pain, only then you will come into a place of knowing how to be truly happy. If you can't hide from pain, why not learn to fight it?

    Perfection is Cancelled

    Perfection is Cancelled

    "Cancel culture" has come to represent a lot of things. For some, it's a necessity in order to remove from positions of influence and power, people who are toxic. But for others, it almost feels like no one is safe. Everyone's past has transgressions, and should we be held to the fire for who we used to be or is it more important to focus on the growth and change of who we are becoming? If we hold one another to the standard of perfection, we have no other option but to fail. So let's cancel perfection. Let's become better. Let's be who we are meant to be.

    What is SONDER? (Hint: It'll Change Your Life)

    What is SONDER? (Hint: It'll Change Your Life)

    Sonder is the new series I've co-created with my writing partner and guest this episode, Alex Wall. Sonder is defined as, "The profound feeling of realizing that everyone, including strangers passed in the street, has a life as complex as one's own, which they are constantly living despite one's personal lack of awareness of it." We've created a show to explore that, and help discuss how important compassion and patience are for everyone you interact with in your day to day. Give it a follow on Instagram now to stay up to date and catch episodes when it premieres October 16th. @sonder.la.

Thank you William

Late 2018 or the beginning of 2019 is when I started listening. I was going through some terrible times and on my way to the gym, I found this podcast. This podcast played a big part in my growth and I’m glad to have experienced this journey. William, I truly want to say thank you. Only podcast to make me cry (the grieving episode) and to just make me realize what evil what was going on with me and others. You helped me find myself and become more selfish. Glad you will now be the person you want to be. I truly will never forget this podcast.
