Episode 166: How to Get What You Want From Life

Subscribe & Listen:

Let’s talk today about setting our intent. See, so many of us live these chaotic lives, and yet we think we have goals. You want to fall in love. You want to be healthy. You want a great body. You want to be rich.

And yet, we wake up everyday without setting our intentions. And the reality check today is this: you cannot get something out of life unless you ask for it. Unless you set your intentions to get it every day.

That’s how you get what you want from life. Listen to today’s reality check where Brett and I will tell you how to do it. And be sure to subscribe, rate and share this podcast in your podcatcher of choice, and come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 165: Why Playing Life Hide & Go Seek Is Deadly

Subscribe & Listen:

Listen up, folks, because this is a very important podcast: life, God, the universe, whatever you believe in, it’s always throwing lessons at you. The lessons are in the people you date, the mistakes you make on a daily basis.

It’s part of being human. But what separates us are whether we learn from the lessons the first time. Because if we don’t, if we play hide and go seek and run away from the lessons, they keep coming back again and again until they kill us.

And that’s today’s reality check: don’t play life hide and go seek. Subscribe to this podcast, rate it and share it in your podcatcher of choice, and come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 164: Would You Know Good Music If It Bit You In The Ass?

Subscribe & Listen:

Oh man, what a podcast we have in store for you today. I’m recording from Montauk with my friends Brett Parker and Bryan Swerling, and today the topic is music. And we’re going to ask, what is good music, and would you know it if it bit you in the ass?

In this tour de force we’re going to talk about the evolution of music and the music industry, wha can objectively be considered “good music,” which music has stood the test of time, and what someone’s taste in music actually tells you about them.

Episode 163: Are You Tapping Into Your Childhood Magic?

Subscribe & Listen:

I’ll tell you something. My Nephew Nicholas really knows how to live life. For him, everything’s magical. Life is limitless and full of possibilities. But for the rest of us, the “adults,” things are a little different.

Our parents programmed us to see the limits in life, not the limitlessness. We put ourselves in “survival mode,” so focused on getting by that we lose the magic of childhood.

So today’s reality check? Tap into your inner child. Tap into the magic. Tap into the part of yourself that believes and knows life is limitless.

Episode 162: Do You Lack the Manifestation Gene?

Subscribe & Listen:

Did you know that you can manifest just about anything you want out of life? If you hate your job, you can manifest a new one. If you’re not satisfied in your relationship, you can manifest a new one.

So the question is, what’s stopping you from manifesting the life you want to be living right now? Is there some kind of genetic deficiency? Can you take a supplement to give you your daily dose of manifestation?

Episode 161: Oh My God! My Boner Died!

Subscribe & Listen:

Boners. Viagra. Erectile dysfunction. That’s just some of what we cover in today’s reality check with my great friend Brett Parker. We’re in Montauk and today, we got to thinking about those experiences that every man has had, when he just can’t “perform.”

Why does your boner die? Who or what killed it? Well, that’s what we’re going to figure out on today’s reality check (which also includes a deep, philosophical conversation on dumping at home vs. on the run).

Episode 160: Are You a #Hashtag Junkie?

Subscribe & Listen:

I’m out to LAX on my way to Montauk today, or as we say nowadays… #LAX #omw #montauk #blessed #excited. Because, for some reason, we can’t say anything without hashtagging it.

I don’t get it. I really don’t. Hashtags are used for searching things on social media. So if you hashtag a picture of your child with #cutestkid, WHY do you even want people to find that?

It creeps me out, and sincerely, please explain it to me if you can find some logic. And do yourself a favor today… try just experiencing your life without the hashtags. Live your life whether or not people are finding you on Instagram.

Episode 159: The Split Concentration Conspiracy

Subscribe & Listen:

I’m sitting at a cafe, daydreaming – but wait! Let me check Instagram really quickly! That’s what we’ve become. A society that can’t sit still for one minute, because we’re all snapping, checking in, sharing, commenting, and swiping.

Look, I’m not saying social media is all bad, and neither is my guest John Keegan. But we’ve gotten so wrapped up in the shit that’s not us. We’ve gotten so wrapped up in the world of social media that we can’t concentrate on our own lives, our own development.

It’s all a conspiracy, and we pull the curtain out from this conspiracy on today’s reality check. So join us today, share us, rate us on your podcatcher of choice, and check out my guest John Keegan at https://theawakenedlifestyle.com/.

Episode 158: To Have or Not to Have Kids

Subscribe & Listen:

To have, or not have kids. That is the question so many of you ask. And it’s interesting, because I’m a father. But my guest, John Keegan, is not. So today, we’re going to talk about that. We’re going to talk about how we each think of parenthood, how you can look at parenthood, and the things that make up a good parent, if that’s what you desire.

Because remember, no one can tell you which path to take. We’re each on our own individual journeys. There is no “should” or “shouldn’t” when it comes to having kids. There’s just the journey of life.

So join us today, rate and subscribe to the podcast, and check out https://theawakenedlifestyle.com/ to learn more about my guest and great friend John Keegan.

Episode 157: Validation of the Cynics

Subscribe & Listen:

You want to know what’s REALLY f*cking sexy? Optimism. Positivity. But the fact of the matter is that people nowadays are so cynical. So negative. They’re always the victim. That’s why they post negative reviews all the time and blame society and the politicians for all their problems.

And you know what? We allow it. We validate it on Facebook all the time. Someone complains and we say, “You tell ’em! You go girl!”

Enough. Today’s reality check is STOP validating the cynics. Listen, subscribe and rate us on your podcatcher of choice, check out my guest John Keegan at https://theawakenedlifestyle.com/, and come on back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 156: How Snickers Satisfies and Kills You

Subscribe & Listen:

Hungry? Have a Snickers. That’s what these marketing guys keep telling you. But… what they DON’T tell you is that their Snickers will actually kill you.

Yep. Tally up all the proven side-effects of a high saturated fat, high sugar, high calorie diet. It will kill you… and is the short-term satisfaction really worth that long-term consequence?

Well, that’s today’s reality check. Delay gratification. Your body will thank you for it. Your mind will thank you for it. So listen to today’s episode, subscribe and rate us in your podcatcher of choice, and come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 155: Don’t Kid Yourself. You Have No Freedom

Subscribe & Listen:

I just took my daughter back to school shopping. Yep. One week into August and it’s already back to school. Because nowadays, you go to school 10 months a year. And even after you spend 6 hours in school, you get 2 hours of homework.

What ever happened to free time? We’re really just preparing our kids for their lives as adults, where they’ll be working jobs they hate, spending all their time on their iPhones instead of loving every breath they take.

In America we pride ourselves on being so “free…” but don’t kid yourself. This isn’t freedom. And that’s today’s reality check, so listen, subscribe and rate us on your podcatcher of choice, and come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.
