    What 50 Ironman Races Taught Him About MENTAL TOUGHNESS | JAMES LAWRENCE Unlock Your Potential #208

    The best way to give somebody hope is by showing up every single day.

    In this episode, I chat with James "The Iron Cowboy" Lawrence, the man who completed 100 Ironman Races in 100 days.

    James recalls the mental toughness he had to develop during his journey.

    He knew that if he quit, he'd never know what it felt like to succeed.

    He also knew that by quitting, he wouldn't be able to give people hope that anyone can do hard things if they believe in themselves.

    I challenge you today; whatever you're facing, don't quit. 

    You must believe you will succeed even if nobody's watching you or rooting for you.

    Simple Hacks To Having VALUABLE Conversations | MARK DRAGER | Unlock Your Potential #207

    Simple Hacks To Having VALUABLE Conversations | MARK DRAGER | Unlock Your Potential #207

    Active Listening is the key to having more valuable conversations.

    In this episode, I chat with Mark Drager about how active listening makes conversations more authentic and smooth. 

    Mark Drager is a brand strategist, podcast host, and business owner who discovered that active listening was the key to overcoming his awkwardness.

    Active listening is listening to the other person in a conversation to process and clarify their words without judgment.

    The goal of active listening is to pay attention to the other person without forming an argument in your head. 

    If you think of something to say, ask yourself if it's worth interrupting the person or letting them finish. 

    After the person finishes speaking and you've had time to reflect, you can say whatever is on your mind.

    Saying whatever is on your mind after you've reflected is more authentic because you aren't caught up in your own argument.

    So, I challenge you to implement active listening in your conversations and watch how much more valuable those conversations become.

    Discover Your Life Purpose Through The Peaceful Warrior's Way | DAN MILLMAN | Unlock Your Potential #206

    Discover Your Life Purpose Through The Peaceful Warrior's Way | DAN MILLMAN | Unlock Your Potential #206

    The only way to discover your life's purpose is to appreciate each step of your journey toward your goal.

    In this episode, I chat with Dan Millman, personal development author, former world champion athlete, college professor, university coach, and martial arts instructor.

    Dan talks about the importance of finding happiness within each step of your journey, not only becoming happy when you reach your destination. 

    Many people believe that they'll be happy once they reach their destination.  

    However, there are moments within your journey when you achieve happiness simply by progressing toward your goal. 

    Progressing towards your goal gives you purpose, and that purpose is what brings you happiness.

    However, you also need a destination, or you'll wander around and never accomplish anything or have a purpose.

    So, it's vital that you find happiness within the journey and learn to appreciate each step as you get closer to your goal.

    How To Find Success In Your Failure (Unlock Your Potential) | BEATE CHELETTE #205

    How To Find Success In Your Failure (Unlock Your Potential) | BEATE CHELETTE #205

    There is success within every failure. 

    In this episode, I chat with Beate Chelette about switching your perspective from thinking failure is painful to view it as an opportunity to learn a life-changing lesson.

    When we fail, we gain an experience that teaches us a lesson. Failure also teaches us what success looks like by figuring out what doesn't work. 

    Sometimes, we just have to go through the tough times to build the muscle that unlocks our greatness. 

    As a result, we're stronger, more resilient, and not afraid to put ourselves out there to reach our goals.

    Find Your Authentic Self Through True Voice | DR. FRED MOSS | Unlock Your Potential #204

    Find Your Authentic Self Through True Voice | DR. FRED MOSS | Unlock Your Potential #204

    True voice is the key to finding your true authentic self. 

    During my conversation with Dr. Fred Moss, he explained the concept of true voice and how radical listening is the best way to find it. 

    The reason is that radical listening allows you to process the other person's words and emotions and understand their message without judgment.

    As you process the other person's argument or message, you develop a response that aligns with their statement. 

    This response is called your True Voice because you demonstrate your authentic self while keeping the other person's truth in mind.

    Basically, you're basing your response on the other person's message without compromising your own message.

    We always think we need to get our message out as quickly as possible so that people will hear it. 

    However, failing to radically listen to our audience and process their emotions leads them to reject our message.

    You can apply the same concept to business. 

    People don't want to hear how great your product is. They want to know how it can help THEM.

    The only way to understand people's pain points is to LISTEN to them.

    As you practice radically listening regularly, you refine your true voice and strengthen your emotional intelligence.

    Transform Your Suffering And FREE Your True Self | KUTE BLACKSON | Unlock Your Potential #203

    The only way to free your true self is to transform your suffering.

    In this episode, I chat with Kute Blackson about how unavoidable suffering is throughout life. 

    Every single person throughout life experiences suffering in one way or another. However, what you do with that suffering ultimately defines you.

    Kute stresses the point that using your pain and suffering to your advantage will unlock your true potential and free your true self.

    I also integrate my 3Ps structure into this concept. By focusing on your personal, professional, and physical development throughout your suffering, you will reveal your true purpose.

Each episode is like a huge banquet

Every single episode of this podcast is like a meal for your life, and often there is so much good “food” that you feel so full afterward! It really is nutrition you need to unlock your potential and become all you were created to be.

One notable thing is that, since Jeff Lerner is a master at interviewing, and usually asks questions that an ordinary guy like me would ask, each episode has something that applies to me. Even when Jeff is interviewing someone that has NOTHING in common with me, such as athletes or real-estate experts or therapists, I find so much that not only applies to my life but helps me begin to grow more immediately.

I highly recommend this podcast.

Jessijean85 ,

This is the first podcast that always has me excited for the next episode..

Success comes in many forms. It’s great to see how each of these amazing individuals got to where they are today.
I get something powerful from each episode.

Great mix of entrepreneurial lessons + habit building

I love this because it’s the perfect mix of business acumen and how to personally develop yourself. Jeff makes the connect between how investing in yourself is an investment in your business.
