    Getting to know Victoria & fun with accents
     
    From 02:10:  “It reminds me of that the British movie Love Actually and isn't there like once one with one of the themes in that movie? is a British fellow who can't get a girl for the life of him, decides to go to America so that you know because you know American women love British accents.”  “And it's so surprising how many people comment on it because I just talk and I'm like, oh, yeah, I don't. I have an accent. So yes.”  
    Why we create barriers
     
    From 06:38:  “We feel like we're not lovable just innately and sometimes those masks are self-protective in from other reasons, you know, historic trauma historic experiences, where aren't systems stepped into a place where being vulnerable and being us wasn't a safe thing to be. And therefore we have created barriers and armor and masks to self-protect.”  “I think of it like the creation of a beautiful statue. You don't like add things in to create the statue the statue creator starts with a lump of stone and chipped away at the edges to create the shape underneath.”   
     
    Human Design
     
    From 18:11: ..so you mentioned Human Design and whether your listeners know or don't know about it, it's kind of a system linked to astrology and all that kind of stuff. And that's where I started and the reason that I've been in this place for 20 years and I am old enough was because I found that when I was 15 my mom found it when I was 15. And so that's when I started in the world of effective personal development and looking inwards. But I couldn't talk about it to anyone, I mean, this was in 2002/2003 I couldn't talk about that to anyone. And now I'm at a party and if a friend that I'm with knows that I'm there and somebody who is interested, I get introduced as the person who learned human design with the founder. And it's like the state shift in recent years. This is very recent that we can have like energetic conversations and I can, I mean, I'm sure people are not using it entirely accurately, but I can use the word Cymatics and people understand what I'm talking about, or at least have some concept that it isn't. I'm just being weird and refuting medical stuff. I'm actually talking about, you know, a bio psycho social emotional phenomenon that we are proving in science now. And that I love I love that I can talk about things openly without feeling like I might be kind of like I don't know

    The Role of Trauma and Adversity in Success with Eric Rogell

    The Role of Trauma and Adversity in Success with Eric Rogell

    Our guest today, Eric Rogell, has had a life and career that many would envy. And yet, he needed to go through his share of adversity and trauma to reach that place. Because he needed a guide to show him the way, he’s passionate about showing others how to fast-track their progress through his organization, “Mentors on Mission”. 
     
    Topics Discussed:
    Embracing our big beautiful battle scars Use your adversity as fuel What it means to take Extreme Ownership How wearing our trauma and adversity like a badge of honour actually hurts us How taking extreme ownership can catalyse the most amazing life ever The Sacred Seven Core Values  
    Bio: 
    Eric Rogell is a bestselling author, podcast host, documentary filmmaker, sought-after speaker, and award-winning journalist who’s traveled the world writing about gear, tech, cars, and adventure travel for publications including Discovery.com, Men’s Fitness, and more.
     
    During that time, Eric hiked the Ma′unga Terevaka volcano on Easter Island, drove some of the country’s most noted racetracks, rode shotgun on the streets of Tokyo in one of the first fully autonomous vehicles, kayaked around Bora Bora, and spent part of the Wacken Open Air heavy metal festival in Germany, suspended 150-feet above the crowd.
     
    Eric has interviewed hundreds of celebrities, athletes, entrepreneurs, military vets and others, getting them to dive deep into their stories, and all the lessons, challenges, and triumphs that have made them the success they are today. Valuable insights that paint a picture of what great leaders are made of. And how critical it is to have strong, influential mentors to guide us along the path.
     
    This inspired Eric to personally share his wisdom over the last 20 years, and mentor dozens of ambitious men and women driven to accelerate their lives and careers. His company, Mentors On Mission, shows organizations how to use the impact of mentoring to dramatically improve their business.
     
    Eric’s next book, “Lions Raised as Lambs” will drop in October.

    Bridging the Invisible Wall Between Management and Leadership with Doug Thorpe

    Bridging the Invisible Wall Between Management and Leadership with Doug Thorpe

    One benefit of the pandemic is that the employment population in general has had an awakening and they're returning to work with a new sense of empowerment. They're no longer willing to put up with toxic bosses. 
     
    And, you know, there's a phrase among HR people that says people join companies but they quit bosses.
    Unfortunately, there’s a long tradition of promoting someone for their results as a team member, and continuing to promote them higher, despite never having had formal leadership training.
    And many are just not nice to work for.
    So, many people are taking the leap and joining the Great Resignation movement.
    The challenge is that they can be trapped into managing their business rather than leading their business.
    They feel blocked if they can’t move from Founder to CEO of their business.
    We’re thrilled to officially welcome Doug to our Faculty of the Stress to Success S.H.I.F.T. Institute, as our executive business and leadership expert. After this episode, you’ll see why!
    Tune in to learn more!

    Overcoming the Stress of Loss and Grief with Dr. Dan Cardelllichio

    Overcoming the Stress of Loss and Grief with Dr. Dan Cardelllichio

    Welcome to another session of our Tap into Elite Performance Live series, this time with Dr. Dan Cardellichio. 
     
    After working with Joanna Chodorowska to guide her through her grief response, I asked Dr. Dan to share what he has experienced since his mother’s passing recently. 
     
    We then worked through his challenges to minimize his resulting stress. Interestingly, what he experienced was completely different than Joanna did!
     
    After just three deep breaths while pressing two acupuncture points, Dr. Dan felt about 50% better.
     
    Listen in to learn more!
     
    Topics Discussed:
    The grieving process can start before the actual loss, especially with a loved one’s drawn-out illness The conflicting emotions around a death that was preventable The conflicting emotions around your loved one’s readiness to give up fighting when you want to do everything possible to keep them with you When your conscious mind wars with your unconscious programming The importance of choosing your big WHY… your Ikigai… your reason for living, in order to survive the tough times The importance of pets in helping us through the grieving process The acupuncture points to tap or hold if you want to:  shift from feeling Anger to Forgiveness boost your immune system
