Episode 244: Are You the Ethics Police?

Subscribe & Listen:

We all know them. They’re everywhere. UN-f*cking-ethical people. And in society, we’ve got a choice when we see someone acting unethically, thinking the rules don’t apply to them. We either let it go… or we’re deputized into becoming the ethics police.

But, is it our job to be the ethics police? Is it any of our business? All that and so much more will be answered in today’s reality check.

So listen, download it, rate us in iTunes, and most importantly, share this with at least one unethical person you know. Because this is the reality check they NEED.

Episode 243: Chivalry: A Modern Battle vs. a Medieval Ideology

Subscribe & Listen:

Today, we’ve got a heavy reality check for all you men out there. All you men dating women and all you men raising daughters. It’s time to man up. It’s time to bring chivalry back.

If there’s one reason so many men and women hate dating nowadays, it’s because chivalry is almost dead. And yet, I show my daughter chivalry every day. I show her what a man is supposed to be, so no man ever mistreats her. EVER.

Are you man enough to join me and bring back chivalry from the grave? Then listen to today’s reality check, subscribe and share it with ALL the men you know, leave us a review, and come back on Tuesday for even more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

And, if you want to learn more about why chivalry is dead in 2017 and what being a REAL man is about, check out this article I wrote for The Hufington Post here.

Episode 242: Why The NFL Season Sucks: The 2016 Election Hangover

Subscribe & Listen:

Sunday, November 5 – aren’t you excited for the NFL games today!?!? Well, my guest Eddie Palmer and I are NOT. And that’s because this NFL season sucks. And the reason why this NFL season sucks goes all the way back to the 2016 election.

Today’s reality check is a crash course through how we’re just not able to get over ourselves, but also how, if we just learned to be a little more compassionate and a little less judgmental, maybe we could look forward to watching some football today.

So join Eddie and I today for this massive, much-needed dose of radical self help. Download and subscribe to the podcast, rate it, share it with your friends, if you want to get in touch with Eddie shoot him an email at eddiepalmer12@gmail.com.

Episode 241: What IKEA Can Teach You About Dating

Subscribe & Listen:

Have you ever tried to put together something from Ikea? You follow the user manual and you just can’t figure out the damn thing. But then, if you work at it, you eventually figure it out.

Well, dating and connecting with other people is the EXACT same way. See, we all want a user manual. But the truth is, if you get out there and just DO IT, you WILL become good at it.

And on today’s reality check, I’m going to prove that to you. So download and subscribe to the podcast, rate us, give us a shout on social media, and come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 240: Sexually Transmitted Disease of the Mind

Subscribe & Listen:

Let’s talk about anxiety – a frequent topic here on the 10 Minute Daily Reality Check. I call it “sexually transmitted disease of the mind.” And like an STD, anxiety can creep up on you and get at you when you least expect it.

So I’m going to give you a condom for your sexually transmitted diseases of the mind. That’s right. We’re going to talk about the roots of your anxiety, how to take care of yourself, and so much more.

So join us, download and rate the podcast, subscribe and share it with your friends, and come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 239: Masturbation of the Heart: How to Live in Awe

Subscribe & Listen:

Today’s reality check is all about resting bitch face. Well, in a sense. Because what my guest John Keegan and I are actually going to talk about is abundance – and why living with an abundant mindset means never wearing a resting bitch face (which both women AND men have, by the way).

See, our philosophy is this: the world is your restaurant. And all you need to do is place an order, and the universe will give you everything you desire and more.

Listen to today’s reality check and we’ll show you just how true that is, and how you can change your life today. Download and subscribe to the podcast, leave us a review, share this message with your friends on social media, and if you want to connect with John Keegan head over to https://theawakenedlifestyle.com/

Episode 238: The Present of Time

Subscribe & Listen:

As the end of 2017 closes in on you, I want you to take a minute and think: where are you at in your life… and where do you want to be? And, most importantly, why aren’t you there right now?

Because today’s reality check is this: if you’ve ever thought, “Once I have ____, I’ll be happy,” then you’ve got life all wrong. Life is about living in the present. You CAN be happy now, not days or weeks or months from now.

So no matter where you are in your life, this is a reality check you need to hear. Listen to it, download and subscribe to the podcast, leave us a review on iTunes, share this with people who need the message, and if you want to connect with my guest John Keegan, go to https://theawakenedlifestyle.com/

Today, Halloween 2017, is the only day of the year where you’re allowed to wear your mask. But in today’s reality check, we’re going to talk about a different kind of mask: the mask you wear not just on Halloween, but every day of your life.

So, what mask is it that you wear? The mask of confidence? The mask of fear? The mask of radical authenticity? Find out on today’s podcast with myself and my guest John Keegan.

Download, rate and subscribe to the 10 Minute Daily Reality Check, share this episode with all your mask-wearing friends, and if you want to learn more about John, check out his website at https://theawakenedlifestyle.com/.
