Episode 507: Why Conspiracy Theorists are Always Wrong

Subscribe & Listen:

The stock market’s gonna crash – the dollar’s going to crash. Okay – conspiracy theorists. You hear them all.

If you look back in time, EVERY conspiracy theorist has had to say, “Well, I was wrong…”

No one can know the future. You can track patterns (which you know I’m a big fan of), you can look at everything around you to try to figure out some direction for the future, but ultimately – YOU are the only thing you can control.

So what are you going to do to change YOUR fate, your future, without worrying about what the conspiracy theorists have to say?

Episode 506: The Low Self Esteem World of Social Media

Subscribe & Listen:

Why is social media DANGEROUS? Why does it suck?

What social media has done to us as a culture is TEACH US the need to be VALIDATED all the time.

It forces us to look for the likes, the shares, ways to get noticed.

Self-esteem is about giving YOURSELF esteem – without the need for constant, cyclical, DAILY validation that social media requires of us.

So, how do we break the social media validation cycle and get back to ourselves?

Episode 505: Forget a Bucket List – Have a Live It List

Subscribe & Listen:

Things we assume …
We make a lot of assumptions in life.

We assume that we’re safe. We assume we know what’s coming tomorrow. The truth is, our assumptions don’t always meet us halfway – and when they don’t, we find we haven’t done the things we want in life that will truly make us happy.

Look, life is not safe …

You can have a bucket list, or you can have a LIVE it list, and live the life you truly want, the one you truly deserve.

What are you doing to build the life you want, NOW, rather than assuming it’s going to happen for you?

Tell me what you think.

Episode 504: Why You’re Not Your Own Guru And Still A French Fry

Subscribe & Listen:

Never in my life have I ever seen anyone QUIT in the fourth quarter of a game.

That’s just something you don’t want a coach to convey to a team.

Why quit?

Why not fight to the end? You never know what’s going to happen.

Human beings as a whole get in their own way over and over again. I’ve talked about the “Battle of the Idiots” before. You get in your own way, and it’s amazing to see it.

What can we do to stop fighting that internal “Battle of the Idiots” and take things to the next level in our lives?

Episode 503: Kill Your Inner Crybaby

Subscribe & Listen:

This is for all of you who want instant gratification …

You’ve really got to take a deep look at yourself and ask yourself this ONE deep question.

Let’s really dig deep into this. If you’re not asking yourself this ONE juicy question, you’re missing one of the most significant opportunities for potential growth – for being the kind of person you want to be.

Take a listen to the question, to what comes after, and let me know what you think.

Episode 502: How To Keep More Money In Your Pocket

Subscribe & Listen:

I’m upset because my fantasy football didn’t do too well- but that’s ok because Fantasy football is not real life.

Real life- what can you do with your life? There’s something called the stock market.

When you get involved in the stock market, you hear the most negative things about it because of our programming. But we are going to lose money in order to learn how to make money.

We live in a better world now full of some really great mentors.

Today we’re going to talk about entrepreneurial-ship with a really great mentor, Lex.

Lex will speak with you on the phone when you need help with your entrepreneurial-ship in trading.

Lex has an easy site that offers a “netflix” type model.

Episode 501: How To Be Your Own Boss Without Breaking The Bank

Subscribe & Listen:

Think about the birds outside and what they’re saying to you. Are they saying “chirp” or are they saying “cheap”?

If you want to be successful, you can’t be “cheap” with yourself. You have to go for it and pay money for help to get to where they need to be.

Some of us need therapists, some of us need coaches. We all need someone to tell us if we’re on the wrong path. Hiring someone makes us the entrepreneur of ourselves.

Do you want to waste your life, or take control of your life?

Investing in ourselves is the best thing we can do for ourselves.

Episode 500: Become The Process, Not The Mental Masturbator

Subscribe & Listen:

Let’s talk about mastering the process.

Masturbating is self fulfilling pleasure. Mastering the process is a lifetime of pleasure.

Everything we do that’s harmful to us is because we haven’t mastered the process that puts us into a better place.

Everything in life that is rewarding is a process.

Shortcuts don’t work. The process is day by day and minute by minute.

We have to fight impulses so the process becomes natural.

Let’s break through the boundaries and trust the process.

Episode 499: The Frustration Of The Life Lottery

Subscribe & Listen:
I hear about people being frustrated every day about every different thing.
Frustration can be extremely overwhelming.
If everything in life were easy, we wouldn’t have so many internet “miracles” available to us.
I try to challenge myself every day, even through the frustration. I put myself into the mindset of success. I do this by seeking out experts who give me advice.
We have to start believing that we will be successful no matter what while also realizing that there will be immensely frustrating times.
If we want something bad enough, it will happen, but only if we can get through the frustration.

Episode 498: Apple’s New Invention The I-Kid

Subscribe & Listen:

Kids are so great because they haven’t been exposed to shit yet.

I never thought I’d have kids but when I did, I realized a love I never felt before.

My daughter has taught me some of my greatest lessons in life.

A lot of people want their kids to live their unrealized dreams, but what i love about mine is that she has her own dreams.
Kids teach you how to not always be so goddamn adult.

Adults complain and overanalyze and speculate all the time. Kids say whatever’s on their minds.

Kids teach adults how to be selfless.

You have an opportunity to learn from kids.

Episode 497: How Men And Women Become Glazed Donuts

Subscribe & Listen:

I do my podcasts while driving because driving makes me angry and I enjoy venting.

Today my vent is about the key difference between men and women.

Women want to know every detail about everything, especially conversations.
Men don’t remember conversations- men remember the outcome.

Men don’t give a fuck and their eyes glaze over when we have to hear verbatim conversations.

Just like women don’t care about fantasy football. Glazed eyes when we talk about it.
We’re here for different things and we can’t expect the other to care about the same things.

That’s the difference between men and women. That’s also what makes men and women great.

Episode 496: How To Kill Your Idiot Twin

Subscribe & Listen:
I’ve never learned lessons in life quickly. I have to do things and make mistakes repeatedly until I finally learn.
Channeling my inner stupidity is how I learned.
People usually channel their inner stupidity at least once a day.
Watch football. Players and coaches do it all the time.
Successful people do it all the time.
The people who don’t cover up their stupidity- they’re evolved.
When our idiot twin comes out, confront it.
Sometimes we need to look at our idiot-twin and bitch slap them across the face.
It helps us evolve.
