    How To Be Alive with Colin Beavan

    How To Be Alive with Colin Beavan

    Meet Colin Beavan Colin Beavan, Ph.D., is a sought-after coach, speaker, consultant, and Zen Teacher in the Kwan Um Zen tradition. He attracted international attention for his year-long lifestyle-redesign project and the wildly popular book, No Impact Man, and the Sundance-selected documentary film it inspired. Colin ran for the US House of Representatives in New York's 8th Congressional District in 2012, was the founder of the No Impact Project, a board member of Transportation Alternatives, an advisory council member of 350.org, and a guest professor at Sarah Lawrence College. He is the author, most recently, of How to Be Alive: A Guide To The Kind of Happiness That Helps The World. He can be found at www.colinbeavan.com as well as on Instagram @ColinBeavan.

    No Impact Man Experiment Colin Beavan set out on a year-long experiment back in 2009 to live environmentally friendly in an extreme way in NYC. He wanted to explore how we can live where we help others and ourselves, understand our role in the environment and climate change, and the impact we make (the inspiration for his No Impact Project, by the way). This year-long project became the documentary, No Impact Man, where Colin focused each month on another issue in the environment and then removed it from his life. He addressed issues like trash, water use, degradation, transportation, and buying only local food. In pursuing these areas of concern, another big question came up - is there a way to build a community that naturally embeds this kind of consciousness into its fabric of society? The year proved to be a powerful experiment in allowing Colin to get healthier and step off the treadmill of constant 'doing' and being glued to screens, giving him more nourishing time to spend with his young daughter, family, and friends. 

    How To Be Alive and Kind This No Impact Man opportunity opened up more questions that he addressed in his book, How to Be Alive: A Guide To The Kind of Happiness That Helps The World, about choosing a way of being where we're both taken care of and taking care of others. This mutual care scenario would allow for a greater sense of security and meaning, two important aspects of having a good life. Colin Beavan unpacked the deeper question of finding meaning in one's life by answering the following questions, which I encourage you to address for yourself:
    1) Understanding yourself: Who are you, and what feels important to you?
    2) What is the world to you, and what do you care about? 
    3) How might you bring these two answers together? 

    It's Time To Create A World Based on Kindness Much of Colin Beavan's studies and wisdom comes from the Zen tradition, a mystical practice that focuses much of your time and energy on staying deep, open-ended questions like 'Who are you?' and not knowing the answer. Colin shared about a master teacher he encountered early on who shared that the ideal is "to wash your mind with 'I don't know' soap." In other words, when you're not interfering with 'knowing' something, you can respond to how the world naturally responds. Under this practice is building your trust in the Universe.

    Now What's Next?  We're in times where many are confused, scared, and anxious but want to bring in more kindness. Tune in to hear a beautiful practice to stay in the 'not knowing' and call in greater connection to kindness.

    Final Thought Colin Beavan's efforts to change the world one step at a time led to a movement we can all join in big or small ways. No Impact Man is well worth the watch to uncover the impact we have on the world with the choices we make, even unconsciously, every day. Be sure to pick up a copy of his latest book, How to Be Alive: A Guide To The Kind of Happiness That Helps The World.

    How To Use Your Voice To Uplift the World with Roger Love

    How To Use Your Voice To Uplift the World with Roger Love

    Meet Roger Love Roger Love is recognized as one of the world's leading authorities on voice. No other vocal coach in history has been more commercially successful in both the speaking and singing fields. Roger has produced over 150 million unit sales worldwide and has written three top-selling books. Roger coaches singers such as John Mayer and Selena Gomez, as well as speakers like Anthony Robbins and actors including Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon, Zoe Saldana, Keira Knightly, and Bradley Cooper. Roger has generously offered a $50 gift certificate to learn how to harness your voice. It is waiting for you right now at http://rogerlove.com/julie
    You’re about to learn new ways to overcome self-doubt and build confidence and the most important things no one’s ever told you about using your voice to become a more successful entrepreneur and change-maker.
    How To Use Your Voice As An Instrument Roger Love is the absolute best in the world at helping you to use the power of your voice to bring out the best of who you are. Science proves that what we say is first processed emotionally, then logically. The emotions are first passed through the prefrontal cortex. In other words, it's not just the words that affect how you feel when someone speaks to you. A myriad of variables, like pitch, volume, and melody, will have you decide if you trust or like the person speaking. Roger has created innovative and incredibly powerful techniques to develop your voice as an instrument that you can use in any way you choose. Listen in to learn some of these brilliant strategies like ascending and descending scales. Hint: you were probably taught early on the wrong way to use your voice, and this one tip could make a massive difference in the way others perceive you and your message. Tune in to learn how to use the power of your voice to make a larger impact.

    Overcoming Fear of Public Speaking Did you know that the fear of public speaking is one of the biggest fears? Ironically, speaking in public, be it on stage, within your company, making a pitch, or leading others is an essential skill. Roger Love shares how to use the voice's building blocks and the five-voice variables to be an effective communicator. But still, it's crucial to use them in the right way, and how you use you use the building blocks is dependent on the emotion you want to evoke. As you learn how to use your voice and build confidence, how to get over a fear of public speaking becomes a non-issue. 

    The Five Key Variables Of Your Voice I bet you didn't know that there are 5 aspects to your voice. And with practice, you can learn to evoke and tap into the 23 main emotions, like gratitude, empathy, and even anger, at any time. Roger trains some leading actors and celebrities, as well as speakers and leaders, on eliciting any emotion they want to communicate. These 5 main variables or voice building blocks are:
    Pitch Volume Melody Tune Pace

    Understanding The Power of Your Voice You may not realize it, but knowing how to breathe (Roger gave a really fun demo in the interview) can change the way you speak and sound. Most of us breathe through our mouths or speak without enough breath. Roger Love calls this phenomenon 'Vocal Fry', and it sounds like you're out of breath. If you're looking to speak more --- be it on stage, on a podcast, in front of colleagues, or at an event, tune in so you can use the power of your voice to do this properly. We had a blast practicing how to breathe through the nose and speak while the air is leaving your diaphragm. 

    Final Thoughts Roger Love was such a joy to have on the show sharing his knowledge as a vocal coach. Who knew that how to get over a fear of public speaking can lie in the power of your voice? Learn how you can harness the power of your voice to achieve your most ambitious goals now and get a $50 certificate at rogerlove.com/julie.

    5 Ways to Increase Your Self-Worth with Julie Reisler

    5 Ways to Increase Your Self-Worth with Julie Reisler

Make sure you take Julie's Free Intuition Test to find your exact intuitive type and superpowers to manifest your dream life at juliereisler.com/freequiz. To learn more about Julie and how she might support you on your You-est You journey, go to juliereisler.com.

    Your Self-Worth Is Not Negotiable This topic is near and dear to my heart. I struggled for years with a sense that I wasn't enough. I felt a lack of self-worth that affected all aspects of my life, including my body image and the way I saw myself. I'm here first off to remind you that your self-worth has nothing to do with what you do or your achievements. You are worthy because you are born. All of us are. You're inherently worthy. Period.

    5 Ways To Increase Your Self-Worth Now that we've got that straight, I want to share with you the five ways I've found to help increase your self-worth. As always, take what resonates and leave the rest. 
    1. Say No More Often Yes, you heard me right. It might sound counterintuitive but say no more often! By learning to speak up for yourself, saying no and getting out of the people-pleasing rut, you're learning to feel ok saying no. When you say no, you allow yourself to make room for what is a full yes. This builds self-efficacy!
    2. Be Impeccable with Your Words Be mindful and impeccable with your words. As Don Miguel Ruiz shares in his book (one of my absolute faves), The Four Agreements, you must be impeccable with your word. Here's the catch, be impeccable with the words you use towards and with yourself. Start to recognize, track and watch what you say to yourself. Watch what you say to others as well, and build real integrity with your words and actions. This builds confidence and self-worth.
    3. Forgive Yourself Forgive Yourself is a practice that will allow you to release shame, guilt, regret, and feelings of 'not good enough'. Write a list of resentments you have with and towards yourself. Look at them as an observer and go deeper to see what was under each resentment and fear. Write about that fear and have compassion for yourself. You can't change the past, but you can change the present, which will change your future. This is not only helpful for building your worthiness but also healing for your mind and body.
    4. Focus on Your Strengths Focus on your strengths rather than where you're falling short. It's so easy (thank you, 'negative bias') to feel like you're always coming up short, missing out, and comparing yourself to others. Rather than focusing on what's not working, aim your attention on your strengths. Write a list of your strengths. For example, some of your top strengths are creativity, empathy, kindness, writing, deep listening, and open-mindedness. Create a practice before the end of each day where you look at how you tapped into your strengths. What you focus on will expand and make you feel more and more self-worth.
    5. Turn to a Higher Power Don't do your life alone. Take time every morning before answering texts and calls and checking your Instagram feed to connect to a source and power greater than yourself. Whether you call it the Divine Matrix, Infinite Intelligence, God, Goddess, The Universe, Source Energy, or Higher Power, find a way to anchor int

    Don’t Keep Your Day Job with Cathy Heller

    Don’t Keep Your Day Job with Cathy Heller

    Meet Cathy Heller Cathy Heller is a fire hose of inspiration. She's the host of the popular podcast, Don't Keep Your Day Job, which has 30 million downloads and has been featured in Forbes, Entrepreneur Magazine, HuffPost, Inc Magazine, Business Insider, and several times by Apple. Each week Cathy encourages thousands of listeners to find more purpose, make an impact, and build an abundant life by doing what they love. She's interviewed successful authors, celebrities, entrepreneurs, spiritual leaders, experts, and everyday heroes about what led them to the biggest moments in their lives. She shares how you, too, can create a life you can't wait to wake up to every day. Cathy's book Don't Keep Your Day Job is filled with inspirational stories from people in her community who have taken control of their life's journey. Her book details how to find the work you're meant to do, grow your business, and wake up to a life you love. She is a phenomenal leader for spiritual seekers, creatives, and entrepreneurs, and she's helping people everywhere add their gifts to the world. Cathy often says, "purpose is the opposite of depression." She is truly lifting others to be the happiest version of themselves. You can learn more at cathyheller.com 

    Discomfort Is The Gift Cathy Heller had a record deal but was dropped from the label. She left her dream of singing and writing music to get into real estate. While financially successful, Cathy felt miserable. She remembered advice from a Tony Robbins tape (I know, so old school, but we used to listen to cassette tapes), which said to ask a good question of yourself. In doing this, Cathy asked herself what she really wanted to do and realized at the time it was to write music. She cold-called producers and directors of TV shows (mind you, without any prior relationship) and got good at building her discomfort muscle. While it was super uncomfortable at first, Cathy Heller pursued these contacts and started to ask what they needed help with. The response was that she was the first person to ask what was needed and truly listen. She pushed beyond her comfort zone and kept calling, making new relationships with producers, and soon was writing music for hit TV shows. Cathy explained that stepping out of her comfort zone and doing it anyway became a gift. And that her business was about radical empathy, as Seth Godin says. They responded to her humility and willingness to listen. Her discomfort was the gift that kept giving as she learned to tap into these same principles and expanded into teaching others how to grow their business. 

    Ask This Question To Pursue Your Goal The question that kept Cathy Heller exploring newer and higher heights was what she needed to do next. She often didn't know but would assume she could figure it out. Cathy took the next right action and step, adding in authenticity and humility, and grew her business to seven figures. This question of what do I need to do next, is one she continues to ask herself.

    Why Courage Is A Must Courage is truly the juicy part. You learn to make a choice even if fear is there because in the end, you can go to bed with your soul at peace. You've got to reframe how you look at courage. The goal is to grow and tap into courage, not to be comfortable. Courage is the ingredient that will allow you to move past your ego and fear. Facing courage and doing it anyway moves you beyond your comfort zone and will enable you to reach your dreams. As Deepak Chopra says, who we are is the divine pretending to be a person, and courage is really about showing up as your divine self. 

    Abundance & Thriving Are Your Birthright We live in a vibrational field where our thoughts have a vibrational frequency. Within 4 seconds, you can feel another person's vibe -- literally. Our job is to thrive. Scarcity is an illusion and is not true. The bigger issue is our capacity to receive and trust that we're meant to be abundance. Just look at o

    The Cosmic Journey with Yanik Silver

    The Cosmic Journey with Yanik Silver

    Meet Yanik Silver Yanik Silver has been called a Cosmic Catalyst, a Maverick Mischief-maker, and a Galactic Goofball. He redefines how business is played in the 21st century at the intersection of evolutionary growth, impact, and fun. Yanik is the creator of the Cosmic Journal, author of Evolved Enterprise, and the founder of Maverick1000, a global collective of visionary entrepreneurs making a serious difference in the world without taking themselves too seriously. In fact, it's not unusual to find him dressed as a lemur, a showgirl, or even in matching mermaid tails with Sir Richard Branson.
    Yanik believes we all have our own "Cosmic Alarm Clock" that goes off at exactly the right time to fulfill our destiny of greatness. It starts as a whisper, a small voice that gets louder and louder until you either answer it or hit snooze. He has spent his life exploring that connection of head, heart, and highest purpose…with his colored pens in hand. It might have all started when he snuck out at age 5 to buy markers—only to catch the wrong bus home and end up at the police station. (Undaunted, his love of doodling and exploring still continues to this day!)
    Get ready for a cosmic conversation that transversed time, space, and anything ordinary. We set the intention for this chat to be purposeful, playful, and profitable, meaning that by listening and getting inspired by the different questions and ideas shared, you will be more connected to your purpose, deep joy of play, and by following your inner guidance, more profitable. 
    Yanik Silver left Russia when he was three years old and watched as his father went from having a few hundred dollars to becoming a successful entrepreneur making a real impact in the world. He learned from growing up in an entrepreneurial environment how to turn ideas into businesses and meaningful work. Here are some of the highlights from our talk that I think will benefit you, whether you are an entrepreneur or hoping to tap more deeply into your soul's gifts.

    Questions Create Your Answers One of the biggest takeaways from our talk is the importance of asking questions that are going to expand your way of thinking and overall consciousness. Definitely check out Yanik's Cosmic Journal for a ton of powerful and enlightening questions. The following questions catalyzed Yanik to shift gears and reevaluate his life and authentic happiness. After starting a successful business yet feeling a little lost, he asked himself, "Am I happy?" and "Would I be happy in 10 years doing what I'm doing now?" He dared to truly listen to his inner guidance, which clearly said, 'no.' He decided to change his career path, and while it took time to take off, he chose to listen to his soul. 

    Your Cosmic Alarm Clock You might ask, what is this cosmic alarm clock? Think of it as your wake-up call from your soul. It starts as a whisper, and if you don't pay attention, it will get louder. Because we have free will, hitting the snooze button and staying asleep to what's calling you is always an option. One thing Yanik (and I) have noticed is that it's almost never a good time to do what your soul wants you to do. The question for you will be whether to follow what's waking you up. I shared about my cosmic alarm clock waking me up at 3:33 am about 14 years ago. It had me make a drastic change and u-turn in my life. It was not easy, yet it was one of the most critical and soul-awakening experiences in my life. Yanik experienced this too by realizing that he was not doing work that truly moved his soul. 

    Your Self-worth Is Not Your Networth It's important to remember, especially those of you who are entrepreneurs, that your self-worth has nothing to do with your networth. It can be tempting to go for the financial rewards and the money, but one thing to keep in mind is that your first intention and focus should be on that thing that aligns your head, heart, and higher self. The money will always fo

    Breaking Up With Sugar with Molly Carmel

    Breaking Up With Sugar with Molly Carmel

    Meet Molly Carmel Molly Carmel, LCSW-R is a leading addictions and eating disorder therapist and Founder of The Beacon Program (Beacon by MC), which offers individual and group solutions to help people break free from their destructive relationships with food and dieting. Known for her irreverent, "straight talk, no chaser" attitude, she's also the author of the innovative book, Breaking Up with Sugar: A Plan to Divorce the Diets, Drop the Pounds, and Live Your Best Life and is the host of the podcast, What You're Craving.  
    Molly has made it her life's mission to help people find a sustainable solution to the battle against obesity and related eating disorders. After battling an eating disorder for over 20 years and finding no solution in available treatment, she began her professional path and has never looked back. In addition to her extensive training in Substance Use and Eating Disorders, Molly is intensively trained in and has an undying love for Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. She is also a trained shaman, Reiki healer, and certified Tibetan bowl singing practitioner.     
    Molly Carmel's work has been featured on The Today Show, The Dr. Oz Show, Dateline NBC, Anderson Cooper 360, and Extreme Makeover, as well as in People Magazine and the Los Angeles Times. To learn more about Molly, go to: mollycarmel.com.
    You know when you're out to eat, and you overhear friends chatting about their biggest breakup or something juicy? Well, my friend, you're gonna feel like you were hanging with us over lunch and were eavesdropping. This was that kind of conversation that went deep but was funny, intense, and got real-deal about food and sugar addiction and how to take care of yourself in a society that eats up toxic diet culture. So, sit back, relax and definitely get your fave snack and tea as you sit in on our talk. 
      Food Is a Relationship Game Contrary to what the diet culture will have you believe, there is nothing wrong with you if you struggle with overeating and food. So many of us are taught at an early age that food equals love. I shared my story of my Dad taking me to Dunkin' Donuts before my first day of nursery school to get three double chocolate donuts. I still remember them like it was yesterday. Molly shared about her massive struggles with bingeing, hiding food, and being the youngest one at Weight Watchers. Here's what's important to note, though, food is a relationship game and about nourishment on a mind, body, and soul level. This can be such a tough one to digest when food has acted like your BFF. This is why Molly wrote 'Breaking Up With Sugar', because it felt like such a breakup experience, not to mention detox. If you find yourself struggling with eating out of control or being unable to stop eating sugar, we get you! It was helpful hearing that most cravings last about 20 minutes or so. A good practice when you're tempted by the pan of brownies or box of cookies in your kitchen; leave the room. Call a friend who will support you. Don't let this obsession continue to steal your energy, time, and joy. The purpose is to be free and love yourself and others. 
    Addiction Is Really About Control Addiction is about needing control, and recovery is about trust. To have recovery, you must shift what you believe. This means not just addressing the physical component but also the emotional and spiritual. I loved what Molly said, 'We row, the Universe steers.' This game of recovery from addiction, especially sugar and food addiction, requires a three-pronged approach of shifting your beliefs and relationship with your mind, body, and spiritual connection. Genuine connection, especially with others on the road to recovery, is the opposite of addiction and can make an enormous difference in your own healing. Molly Carmel suggests you look at cravings as sirens (trust me, I know all about cravings for chocolate anything) and that they're calling you to get introspective and see what you
