177: Inner Strength and Courage with Abby Wynne

Jul 16, 2019 56:50

Description:

It was not that long ago that the concept of self-care and inner energies  was considered ‘new age’, something that only hippies practiced. Nowadays, it’s considered essential to practice self-care, listen to our intuition, and follow healthy boundaries when it comes to the people and things we let into our lives. And when it comes to reaching a point of fulfillment, I’ll let you in on a little secret: everything that you need is within you. Society doesn’t define you, another individual doesn’t define you, you alone are the person who decides, consciously, what you will make of your life, and how you will live through all the ups and downs that are part of our human existence. 
 
I teach the importance of self-love to my clients as one of the foundational elements that they must have before they are able to receive their soulmate. You simply cannot sustain loving another person if you don’t first acknowledge, appreciate, and remind yourself that you are enough in this world, and that although you love someone else with all your heart, they do not validate your worth. 
 
I loved getting into that “woo-woo” zone with Abby Wynne, a spiritual healer who has a scientific background to back up all of her teachings. What we uncovered in this episode may be exactly what you need to hear today to remind you that you are worthy of a life full of love and happiness. 

176: Grow Your Sales & Revenue the Enlightened​ Way with Connie Whitman

Jul 9, 2019 56:12

Description:

Being an expert in relationships, I often talk about the importance of intention and doing everything from the heart. And while this is particularly important in relationships, it also rings true for another aspect in your life that you may not have thought of: you business, particularly your sales.
 
When selling to people, you need to come from the heart, meaning, you need to ask yourself: do I really care about how my service or product will serve this person, or am I just focused on getting the sale? If you put customer care and attention first, you’ll quickly see how your sales will skyrocket in correlation. It helps to remember that at the end of the day, you are speaking to another human being - one who has fears and doubts, goals and dreams, and may be seeking your help in dealing with their issues. 
 
No one knows this better than Connie Whitman, a dear friend of mine who you wouldn’t even realize was selling something to you if she were to get you on a sales call. She’s that good, and totally genuine about it. You’ll learn a lot about the importance of listening and relationship building to grow your sales in my episode with Connie. Tune in! 

175: Self Love and Self Worth with Dr. Dinorah Nieves

Jul 2, 2019 54:41

Description:

There is one person that we often forget to put on our to do list: ourselves. Especially as women, we are not only culturally raised to be primary caregivers for all sorts of people, but internally we have our feminine instincts which tend to come from a place of giving and nurturing. 
 
We need to remember that it is important to love ourselves as much as we love other people, and as much as we expect other people to love us. And regardless of who loves us, nothing will ever be as important to your inner fulfillment as how much you love yourself, and allow yourself to make mistakes, to achieve your dreams, to live your life unapologetically. 
 
My guest today is a personal and professional development coach and a behavior scientist who helps people do well and feel well by taking in a whole person approach to wellness. You May have seen Dr. Dinorah Nieves on ABC's The Chew, Braxton Family Values, and other television shows. She’s here today to share how and why you need to love yourself without feeling any guilt. 

174: What You Don't Know About Marriage! with Jenna McCarthy

Jun 25, 2019 54:24

Description:

We often think about marriage as a label to a relationship, when in fact, it’s more of a verb: it’s something you do, something you work at, every single day in the hopes of getting better and better at it. Because no matter how much you love your partner, you are both still independent, unique people with different needs going on at all times. Throw onto that children, bills, and careers, and you've got yourself a chaotic situation that would drive anyone crazy. 

In reality, it doesn’t have to be so hard. Through all the ups and downs of marriages, you’ll find that the thing that is going to make the biggest difference, what essentially will keep your marriage together, is going to be how kind you are to your partner. How much you can remember that they are human too, that they are just as tired, frustrated, stressed, as you are, and at the end of the day are simply looking for a warm hug, a kind word, a long embrace - something that tells them it’s going to be ok, you are in this together, and the reason you are in this together is because of love. 

Today’s episode rocks! My guest Jenna McCarthy shared so much extraordinary wisdom in this episode, and she delivers this wisdom with a refreshing dose of humor. Jenna McCarthy is a TED speaker, internationally-published writer, and the author of 16 books for adults and children. She is hilariously brilliant, and I’m sure you’re going to have a lot of fun listening to this episode.

173: The Secret Life of Fat with Sylvia Tara

Jun 18, 2019 47:30

Description:

The war on fat sometimes feels like a lost, never-ending battle. The diet industry is making billions in weight-loss products every year, and there are hundreds of potions, lotions, and magic pills on the market as well as thousands of different diets that can leave you in worse shape than before. Most of these solutions are short-lived, and regardless of the promises and the great marketing behind them, they just don't work. The truth is that there is no "one size fits all" in terms of what will work for you, will not work for another, and vice versa. It depends on your personal genetics, metabolism, gender, etc. There is more to weight loss than meets the eye.

Fat is an organ, it's a fascinating part of our body. Fat is essential to your body; from hormone regulation to the female reproductive system. That's why your fat doesn’t want to let go of you when you are trying to shed the pounds, leaving you frustrated, wondering if fat loss is even possible for you.

Good news is, there is a right way to lose fat, and there is a science behind it. Today’s guest is Sylvia Tara, a biochemist who has researched fat and is the author of a bestselling book, The Secret Life of Fat. Today she reveals the complex biology of fat and what it means to each and every one of us.

172: From Mindset to Masterminds, Your Secret to Success with Jay Fiset

Jun 11, 2019 48:16

Description:

You’ve probably heard of the team “being woke”, which in popular slang is used to refer to operating out of a higher state of consciousness. When we reach this level of awakened reality, is when we start  living the life that we want, regardless of the external pressures of society to live our lives a certain way.

To get to this level of consciousness, you do need to put in a lot of internal work, but you don’t have to do it alone. There are so many amazing workshops, courses, masterminds, basically communities of like minded people who are on the same internal quest as you are, and in banding together you’ll find the ultimate support and inspiration to keep going.   My guest today was a pioneer in the development of Masterminds. Jay Fiset has been in the field for over 30 years, and has dedicated most of his career to integrating a global movement of conscious creators  to organize their lives and resources around their passions and gifts. Tune in to learn how to access a higher level of consciousness and meaningfully connect with like minded people.

171: Overcome Pain and Limitations through NeuroMovement with Anat Baniel

Jun 4, 2019 55:36

Description:

For many of us, the brain remains a mystery. But it has an important job in our life: to make sense out of the disorder of the world. Our brain must process every sight, every sound, smell, taste, emotion, everything that we experience, process it and make sense of it in a way that is healthy for us.

170: Chakradance with Natalie Southgate

May 28, 2019 54:32

Description:

The synergy between our mind, body and soul is often underestimated, when in reality, these are puzzle pieces which must be connected in order for us to live a whole existence. How we think about our world, and move ourselves within it, affects our emotional state and energy in a way that can make a difference in our level of happiness and fulfillment.  
 
Movement is one of the most powerful ways to wake up the energies within us, particularly those held in our Chakras. But most of us spend our days sitting in front of a computer, allowing our energy to drain instead of actively nurturing it. We hold so much in our bodies, that movement, whether free dance, running, stretching, yoga, even just getting up out of your chair and wiggling around, will have a great effect on your state of mind and level of productivity.  
 
My guest today is Natalie Southgate, a trained Jungian therapist and energy healer. Having researched the relationship between dance, music, mandala, and chakras, she created Chakradance in 1998. Natalie has led thousands to Chakradance live events and courses and runs regular workshops across the world. I hope this episode will make you want to move and shake your body in a way that is free and liberating!  

169: Soulful Passionate Relationships with Dave & Yvette Ulloa

May 21, 2019 56:31

Description:

As the saying goes, no good thing comes easy, and that is especially true for Marriages. While you may consider the act of getting married the ultimate culmination of a relationship, in fact, getting married is just the beginning of a long, bumpy, exciting, risky journey.

There are ways that you can balance each other, play on your masucline/feminine energies, listen to each other, love each other and most of all respect each other, for the individuals that you are and for the way your partner brings out the best in you.  
 
There is no one better to provide guidance on how to make your marriage flourish than my beloved married friends, Dave and Yvette Ulloa. This couple is extraordinary.They've been married for 19 years and they're very passionate about their relationship and empowering others. They both graduated from Tony Robbins Senior Leadership, and are certified NLP practitioners. They've been travelling the world full time for the past 13 years, speaking on stages as large as 25,000 people. Tune in to learn how to put the spark back into your marriage!

145: Influencing Memory And Effective Communication with Carmen Simon

Dec 4, 2018 54:45

Description:

You're in for a treat because my guest is extraordinary. I love her and love everything she talked about. When I think about a neuroscientist, I think about somebody who is a nerd and sits in a lab, whatever interesting imagery comes to mind. She's got the smarts and the fire. She is a wonderful, fun human being that is super wise and is going to teach you how to improve your brain and your memory. Mostly what she's focusing on is how you can stand out, how you can enter a conversation and have people remember you, how you can do a presentation and have people remember you and retain what you told them. This is the key to success because when you are top of mind, people want to work with you, people want to engage with you. How do you stay top of mind? How do you grab someone's attention?

In the past, I don't know why maybe it's my personality, I used to draw attention regardless of what I did. My friends in high school, they could sneak in late and nobody noticed but as soon as I do it until this day, everybody notices it. I'm an attention magnet somehow and in the past, I try to dim it. Sometimes I still do, but the more I talk to more interesting smart people, successful high achievers and all those freaking unbelievable experts that are here, the more I get that getting attention is not necessarily a bad thing. You want to channel it to do good in the world. You want to channel it to a place where it influences your success and the success of the people that are around you and that are working with you. We’re going to learn more about that. Do you want to learn how to be more magnetizing and how to influence people for good and be a force for good?

Carmen Simon is a cognitive neuroscientist, author and Founder of Memzy, a company that uses brain science to help corporation create memorable messages. Carmen consults with major corporations on human memory and on decision making processes and has developed a science-based method that helps people become memorable and drive a desired action. She's worked with AT&T, Google, Cisco, HP, McDonald's and so many more amazing brands. She's also a guest lecturer at Stanford University and speaks frequently on the importance of using brain science to craft communication. She is fantabulous. Also, I would love to hear from you if you are enjoying this. If you feel like it is valuable, then go ahead and give me a five-star review and tell me why you liked it. If you don't like it, don't tell anyone. Just kidding. Being a podcaster, it’s sometimes lonely on the other side. I want to hear and be engaged with you. If this knowledge that I bring to you contribute to your life, inspires you and something that you love and fills your heart with joy, then I would be so grateful to hear from you and connect with you.

[60:35] - What are Douglas’ three top tips for living a stellar life? He doesn’t have three, but rather one powerful message: realize that you can come out of suffering internally by stepping out of daydreaming and stepping into a state of vast beingness.

E108: How To Be Confident: Orion Talmay

Mar 20, 2018 40:52

Description:

Let’s talk about confidence! What is it? How is it built? How can you increase your confidence on a spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical level? Increasing your confidence is a matter of pushing yourself beyond your limiting beliefs and discovering all the places you can go. In this episode, I’ll take a deep dive into this topic to help you become a more confident version of yourself!

The Mission Log: [01:10] - Orion always wanted to be confident, especially when speaking, but struggled with using English. She explains one of the things that helped her. [02:23] - We hear about an abusive relationship that Orion was in around a decade ago, and the impact it had on her.

[07:20] - Orion points out that confidence is a spiritual thing, and explains what this means. [09:36] - Orion recently published an article about vision boards and their power. She discusses the way vision boards have functioned for her in her own life. [12:32] - We learn about the reticular activating system, or RAS, in the brain. [14:05] - Another spiritual way to become more confident is to be confident for someone else. [16:18] - Orion’s intention every time she enters a room is to light people up. [18:08] - You are the average of the five people you hang out with the most, Orion explains, so make sure you’re hanging out with people who are good for you and encourage you to take bold steps! [20:45] - One of the five people who Orion hangs out with the most is her cat, she jokes. [21:47] - Orion talks more about going outside of her comfort zone, and why it’s so important. [24:34] - What will happen when you give yourself permission to be whatever you want (as long as you don’t hurt other people)? [26:08] - Allow yourself to fail, Orion advises, and offers some specific words of wisdom. [27:46] - Orion moves onto talking about the emotional aspects of confidence. [30:37] - We hear how what Orion has been saying relates to the wealthy people who she hangs out with.

E107: The Gift of Self-Love: Orion Talmay

Mar 13, 2018 34:05

Description:

Today’s episode is all about self-love! If you’re not familiar with the power of self-love, this might sound like it’s about being arrogant or self-centered. But self-love doesn’t have to be like that at all! Instead, it involves beautiful concepts such as forgiving yourself, trusting yourself, setting (and sticking to) your boundaries, taking care of your health, and saying yes to positive experiences. As part of my own self-love journey, I’m going to do this episode solo because I trust myself and my knowledge to be valuable enough to share with you!

The Mission Log: [01:58] - Orion talks about what self-love is (and isn’t), and mentions the dictionary’s definitions of self-love. [03:52] - Self-love is taking actions that are directed toward promoting your well-being, Orion explains. One of the major factors in this is forgiving yourself. [06:40] - Orion talks about what the difference is between being proactive and reactive, and clarifies why it’s so important to be proactive. [08:53] - Only when Orion slows down is she able to function at her best. [10:36] - One of the days in the challenge that Orion did was about forgiveness. She talks about some of the things she had to forgive in her own life. [12:28] - We hear about an upcoming episode’s guest, Byron Katie, and her system involving four questions. [15:06] - Self-love looks like self-trust, Orion explains, and talks about what this means. [17:14] - Orion has learned to separate the guru from the method and understand that it’s okay to release what you don’t need, especially the attachment to that particular person being your guide. [18:36] - We learn about what intuition is, and some of the reasons that it can be so important. [20:31] - Orion offers a piece of advice: talk to yourself the way you would talk to your best friend. She offers some personal insight into how she has felt about her body, and the importance of accepting yourself the way you are. [23:15] - You’re perfect just the way you are, Orion points out, and you’ll suffer until you accept your perfect imperfections. [24:04] - Orion talks more about the seven-day challenge she did with her group, and describes the day they did mirror work. [26:54] - Orion offers an exercise for listeners: touch a part of your body that you’re having a hard time with, and say, “I love you” and “thank you” to that part of yourself. [29:02] - A tip you can use to create more self-love is to practice saying no and being assertive. You can still be kind, but protect yourself and your boundaries. [30:30] - You can also practice saying yes! Orion lists some things you should say yes to.

E101: Styling Your Life to Your Highest Potential with Luke Storey

Jan 30, 2018 01:15:42

Description:

My guest in this episode is Luke Storey, who is not only a biohacking expert but also an experienced life stylist. Luke will take a deep dive into biohacking, a relatively new concept that involves using science, technology, and research to hack your body and brain. We’ll talk about his life and his various transitions, as well as concepts like the importance of sunlight, choosing the best drinking water, and what a fulfilling morning routine looks like.

The Mission Log: [07:13] - Luke shares a bit about himself and talks about his life story. He explains that he has had a classic hero’s journey, and even dealt with drug addiction from a shockingly early age. [11:00] - We hear about what Luke did with the trauma he experienced as a kid, and how easily he got addicted to various substances. He also discusses the reasons that he didn’t follow through with his suicidal ideas. [14:09] - On the positive side, things became so dark and painful by Luke’s mid-20s that he was able to explore his shadow self in depth early in his life. This thoroughly prepared him to study spirituality when he was 26. [16:36] - Luke talks about his next steps professionally, as he began working as a stylist. He then discusses his complete career shift two years ago, when he reinvented himself as a life stylist. [19:46] - Orion feels and understands Luke’s passion, and has a similar passion for her work. [21:06] - Luke discusses the fear behind his transition, as well as the result of the transition. [25:18] - After 17 years as a stylist, it became clear to Luke that fashion wasn’t his true passion and he wasn’t fulfilled by it. Instead, the thing that puts him in the best mood is helping other people. He talks about how he discovered this. [27:46] - Orion points out that when people pay, they pay attention. [29:52] - Luke shifts into talking about biohacking by discussing how difficult it is to achieve success in personal refinement and development when your biology is suffering. [33:24] - What is Luke’s definition of biohacking? [36:15] - Luke talks about what has and hasn’t worked in getting our species to where we are. As our technology advances, he points out, we get further and further away from our natural environment. [39:20] - Last night, Orion put her TrueDark glasses on before she went to bed. This morning, she soaked up the sunlight on the beach. [40:26] - One of Luke’s biggest sleep hacks is to get at least 20 minutes of natural daylight as early in the day as you can. He then raves about the experience of collecting your own spring water. [42:50] - Luke has created a document talking about his water priorities. He explains the best kind of water to drink, and why commercially available water has nothing beneficial alive in it. [50:31] - Luke has only found one company that he believes has done filtration right: PristineHydro. Their filter mimics what a spring would do to water. He then offers a code that will save you 20% on your first order there. [54:18] - What is Luke’s morning routine for nourishing his mind and body? He details this process, which he says is identical from day to day. [57:20] - Dr. David R. Hawkins is one of Luke’s favorite people to listen to in the morning. He lists some of his other favorites as well. [60:06] - After listening to a podcast in the morning, Luke makes an herbal elixir. He lists many of the ingredients that he often includes. He then describes the next steps in his morning routine. [68:01] - Luke ends his morning routine with some spiritual reading on his porch in the sun, then does a few minutes on his Bellicon trampoline. [69:49] - What are Luke’s three top tips for living a stellar life? Develop a relationship with whatever energy or power created the planet and everything on it. Monitor your own thinking and thoughts, and guard yourself from thoughts based in negative energy. Address the physical level by optimizing the outer environment to be as natural as possible.

The Mission Log: [02:15] - Orion starts things off by talking about the mastermind she recently attended, and shares one powerful takeaway she got from the event. [05:42] - Especially for entrepreneurs, it’s easy to get distracted with things like working on a website rather than figuratively “pressing the gas pedal,” Orion explains. [07:12] - Several people have been recommending that Stephan read the book The ONE Thing by Gary Keller. Orion then talks about being in the world of action, which Stephan relates to Kabbalah. [09:21] - Orion quotes Dr. Wayne Dyer, pointing out that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. This means we need to obey the laws of the universe, including the law of action. [12:38] - Stephan elaborates on what Orion has been saying, pointing out that we are all storytellers and meaning-makers. [13:39] - Orion discusses the Law of Attraction and Abraham-Hicks, as well as her time in Japan. [17:26] - When Stephan first heard Orion talk about Abraham-Hicks, he was skeptical. He engaged in the willing suspension of disbelief, found that the message served him, and has become a real fan. [20:35] - “Worry is praying for the things you don’t want,” Orion says, quoting one of her guests. She then offers a recommendation on a way to make yourself (and those around you) happier. [23:32] - Orion expands on the concept of the frowny face she has just been talking about. [26:32] - When you change your mindset, you change everything, Stephan points out. He then explains that he didn’t discover Tony Robbins until he was almost 40. [28:57] - Orion discusses the importance of taking care of yourself, using the analogy of putting on your own oxygen mask first. [32:03] - Stephan recently learned that Oprah takes daily bubble baths to destress, and Jennifer Aniston’s morning ritual includes meditation. Orion then shares her own morning ritual. [34:56] - How does Stephan exercise self-care throughout the day? [36:04] - Orion talks about some of the things she does to wrap up her day. She and Stephan then talks about some of their rituals together. [40:09] - We move onto the topic of nutrition, with Orion pointing out that your body craves what is in your bloodstream. [41:54] - What can you do to improve your nutrition? [42:32] - Stephan steps in to talk about your microbiome. He explains that there are more cells within your body belonging to other entities (like bacteria) than belonging to you. Orion then recommends probiotics and enzymes. [46:18] - We learn about Restore, which Orion has started taking. [48:31] - From nutrition, we move onto the topic of Orion’s community and her 7-day challenge. This challenge will be launched just before Valentine’s Day. [51:22] - Orion has mentioned having proof that her challenge is successful; what is this proof? She then discusses whether the challenge will also be useful for women who are in relationships, or whether it’s just for single women.

[45:32] - Does Kate have any daily rituals that she follows? One of her rituals is to send herself power statements throughout the day.

Joining me in this episode to help you rediscover your sexiness is the amazing goddess Luci Lampe. Sexiness isn’t about your makeup, weight, bra size, or clothes.

E97: Magical Moments & New Year’s Resolutions: Orion Talmay

Description:

Another year has flown by. In today’s episode, I just wanted to get a little personal and share some of the magical moments that I had over the last year. I learned a great deal and went on some amazing journeys. This episode is about leveling up, being open to clues sent by the universe, and living your stellar life to the fullest.

Stellar Life Podcast

The Mission Log: [00:38] How the last year passed in the blink of an eye. I want to do this episode to share my year with you. Then my first thought was that I didn't accomplish anything. [01:02] It's so typical of people who have Type A personalities who like to achieve, conquer, and have big dreams. Sometimes it takes time to manifest all of those dreams.   [01:21] I took a step back and asked my husband what happened. So much happened that everything became a blur. We need to celebrate our achievements even the little things. [02:09] Taking a deeper look and appreciating how much you have advanced and seeing the gifts of what has happened to help you grow. [02:46] Seeing what we don't want and how it helps us see what we want. [03:10] Looking at my last year. 2016 was super stressful for me because I was planning my wedding. Even with a wedding planner it wasn't easy. [03:40] We had a wedding in a remote location in the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. This is a beautiful remote place. It is one of the most bio-dense areas in Costa Rica. At the lodge there were monkeys, toucans, seabirds, and so much beauty. [04:47] It was pouring down rain and I was stressed out of my mind, but it turned out to be a beautiful time with friends and family. [05:19] 2017 was spent living my life in a new arrangement and focusing on what i really wanted to achieve. [05:30] One of my biggest achievements was launching the Awaken Your Inner Goddess Challenge. [05:38] The challenge was so awesome and every woman had so many breakthroughs, just by taking care of herself for 15 minutes a day. [06:40] Women fell in love with themselves and their responses filled me with joy. This affirmed that my knowledge has enabled me to bring my mission to women and help them shine and see beyond their limitation. [08:21] How I shrivel and shrink when I don't put myself beyond my comfort zone. [08:27] 2018 is for expanding, growing, reaching, and touching the stars with a Stellar Life. [09:20] I had amazing breakthroughs over the last year,and I am amazingly grateful for my clients and their trust in me. [10:03] Awakening your own inner goddess that is sexy, juicy, and alive. [10:23] Some days can shake your confidence but then signals come and everything falls into place. [11:17] Try looking for the clues, listening to the messages of the universe, and be open to receive those messages. [12:03] Looking beyond the 1% and getting a glimpse into how big and vast we are. [12:46] I talk about seeing Donny Epstein in Denver at Transformation Gate. [14:13] We learned the five steps to mastering at Neil Strauss's Secret Society for Men. [15:03] We learned about marketing and Internet marketing. I find it a bit dry and it is not my zone of genius. [16:30] The importance of sharing your message with the world and not holding it back. [17:26] I had a visit with my family for a month. Then we visited the Dead Sea. The mineral mud soaks out all of the toxins. It makes you feel reborn. [19:59] This year was a year of recovery. I had to wear a cast, I'm training, and even doing acupuncture. [21:22] The injury affected my fitness routine. I also used to do Krav Maga. This is a super fast and effective martial art. It's about defending yourself and running away. I even had to stop my pole dancing classes which helped me connect with my femininity. [23:53] The importance of giving yourself grace in whatever you are experiencing right now. Stop pushing too hard and give your body time to rest. [25:00] Surrendering to our highest person and allowing the universe to hold us. [25:54] Join a mastermind and surround yourself with like minded people. [27:29] Reading books is another way to associate with great minds. You can also use the magical land of the Internet, YouTube videos, and TED Talks. [28:57] Blog Herald in Orlando with Stephen and his daughter. Sometimes we have to go beyond ourselves for our loved one. [29:30] The importance of taking care of yourself. Including cleansing toxic lead or toxic poisoning. [30:35] Chelation and working with a naturopath and eliminating the amalgam fillings. [31:15] People who love the planet and the world and want to dominate in a good way by helping the planet and other people at World Domination Summit in Portland. [31:44] I talk about Mike Vardy organizing and systemizing your life. Mike will be on this show next year. [32:07] Talking with Loral Langemeier: Wealth Building Mastermind. We are constantly fed lies about our worthiness to become wealthy. [33:23] The more I hang out with the wealthy the more I see that we are all humans. The only difference is just a small shift in mindset. [35:11] Why do you need it? Why do you want it? Guilt around having wealth. Having something just because you wanted it. It is OK to have a blessed life and have opportunities to help other people. [37:22] Podcast Movement and learning how to create a better podcast. I have finally gained  the strength to share my message without hiding behind my guests. [38:55] If you send me an email, I promise you that I will answer it. If you are enjoying this podcast reach out and say hi! [41:14] Ground yourself and get out in nature. Lakes, forests, trees, take a walk. [41:44] Biohacking. I even had Dave Asprey on my show. It was awesome. Technologies that connect you to the future of medicine. [43:55] The Bulletproof conference is like Disneyworld for geeks. [44:37] I also went to India which was awesome. I also spent three hours with an elephant named Star. I love elephants, she was amazing. She even talked with elephant sounds. [46:32] I saw the Dalai Lama! I could feel his energy when he passed. [47:01] I took my mom and sister to Greece. It was raining and there were floods, but it was wonderful. [47:31] I also became an American citizen this week. It was an intimate ceremony of 5000 of us. [49:03] Israel and the US are the greatest of allies, and we are very connected. I have a dual citizenship. [50:29] This has been a great year. Everyone should reflect on your last year and celebrate all of your achievements.   [51:40] I wish you a happy and healthy New Year and hope that all of your dreams come true.

E:93 Building Influence With Video: Sean Cannell

Dec 5, 2017 01:00:14

Description:

Sean Cannell is a YouTube expert who teaches influencers how to be successful using video and social media. There’s one YouTube metric that’s even more important than views or subscribers. Sean will explain why “minutes matter most.” In other words, the view time on your videos is the most important metric. In this conversation, he’ll take a deep dive into the ins and outs of being successful on YouTube. His expert tips will help whether you’re a beginner or have already started growing your presence on the platform.

The Mission Log: [02:26] - Orion starts the show off with a fun fact: both she and Sean like The Flash. [03:28] - Sean talks a bit about himself and his life, explaining how he met his wife and some health challenges she went through. He then discusses how he got into video around a decade ago. [08:02] - Orion’s tough times have been her greatest gift, she explains. Sean agrees and ties this into his experiences. [11:08] - We hear how Sean has changed in the past decade or so. He explains the ways in which he has become a better human being, particularly through gratitude and compassion. [15:01] - We hear a story of an encounter that Orion had during a recent trip to India, illustrating how much abundance most of us have in our lives. [18:24] - Who have Sean’s teachers been in his life journey and transformation? [21:41] - Sean talks about the impact that changing your environment can have on your success. [23:23] - Let’s talk YouTube! Orion talks about her experiences in trying to get started on YouTube. [24:10] - The best time to start on YouTube was in 2005, when the site started. But that’s irrelevant now, Sean points out, and the second-best time to get started is today. He offers some advice on how to do this. [27:08] - Sean talks about what not to do, which is looking at someone else’s channel on YouTube, liking it, and deciding to do what they’re doing because you like it. [30:15] - “Your vibe attracts your tribe,” Sean memorably says as he explains why it’s so important to be yourself and be unique on YouTube. [31:22] - How important is a YouTube channel’s name? How do you plan and strategize when you’re at the very beginning of planning and creating your channel? [34:52] - Sean recommends having what he calls a “napkin content strategy.” He explains what this is, and how simple and straightforward it can be. [36:53] - The two things you should define for your YouTube channel are who your audience is and what kind of value you’re going to deliver. [40:58] - Sean talks about what to do once you’ve identified your audience and value proposition: put out consistent, strategic, valuable content. [41:26] - Sean’s team is still relatively small. He also talks about the growth process of his YouTube channel, which started in 2010 but took off in late 2015. [43:51] - What are some of the most important tips regarding ranking for beginners? In his answer, Sean goes into depth on how to title your video. [45:26] - Another mistake that a lot of people make is shooting their video first, and then trying to optimize it later. [50:22] - Sean offers another tip regarding being specific. For example, you’ll probably never rank for “low carb,” but have a great shot for “low carb meal prep for weight loss.” [51:41] - One of the big mistakes that Sean sees people making is thinking that views or subscribers are the most important metrics. Instead, he explains, minutes matter most. [55:52] - The point, Sean explains, is that if you want to grow your channel authority, you need to put out consistent content and then hustle to get people to watch your videos.

Nov 21, 2017 53:27

Description:

My guest for this episode, Dr. Harry Adelson, is an expert on stem cell injections. He knows all about using stem cell injections to treat chronic musculoskeletal pain. Harry has performed over 4,000 procedures, making him one of the world’s true experts on this subject.

About Harry Adelson

The Mission Log: [03:54] - How did Harry get involved with stem cells? He describes his background in rock climbing, and mentions his experience in being treated with prolotherapy. [06:24] - We hear about how Harry learned about the use of bone marrow stem cell injections into arthritic joints, and how this led to his exploration of stem cells. [08:22] - Harry explains what stem cells are and what makes them unique. [10:41] - Orion clarifies in simpler terms: the stem cells are basically like the ace in a deck of cards, because they can be anything. [10:56] - What kinds of conditions can stem cells treat? [13:10] - Harry’s area of specialty is treating musculoskeletal pain rather than using stem cells in the brain, he explains, but there are quite a few other areas (including the brain) that can be treated with stem cells. [17:19] - Harry talks about the treatments that he has done on Dave Asprey and his whole family. [19:48] - We learn about the “P-shot” (or, as Orion calls it, the “privates shot”), which Harry explains is very popular in South America. [21:26] - Can stem cells help with hormonal imbalance and adrenal fatigue? Harry answers that this isn’t his area of focus, but he has had patients tell him all kinds of fascinating things that suggests the treatments have a positive systemic effect. [22:38] - Harry explains that results vary and some patients aren’t helped by his treatments. After that disclaimer, he explains that they do help most people, and gives an example of a great recent case. [23:49] - The biggest risk in injecting stem cells is infection, Harry explains, but the risk is extremely rare and not unique to stem cell therapy. He then talks about a case in cosmetic surgery when a combination of stem cells and cosmetic filler went wrong. [25:44] - Harry talks about the types of stem cells that he uses in his practice. [29:17] - It’s been about a year since Harry started using his new combination of stem cell types, so it’s still too early to tell exactly how successful it is. [31:38] - Harry discusses banking stem cells, as well as a new technology that involves culture expansion of your own stem cells. [33:18] - How do the facilities in the US compare to those in other countries? [34:30] - There’s no reliable way to measure the quality of stem cells in a clinic, so Harry doesn’t routinely do it. [36:47] - Our genetics, lifestyle, and diet can all affect our genetics. Dr. Harry discusses how the combination of genetics and lifestyle can impact our stem cells. [40:07] - Harry talks about his recommendations for Orion, given the general wear and tear she mentions in her body. [42:21] - We hear in more detail about the process of getting a procedure at Harry’s clinic. [45:08] - At what age should we bank our stem cells? As early as possible, Harry answers, because our stem cells age as we do. [45:50] - Harry doubts that these treatments will be covered by insurance. He explains that his procedures currently cost $6,000 to $15,000. [48:12] - What are Harry’s three top tips for living a stellar life? The four pillars to health are emotional balance, sleep, exercise, and diet, he explains, then gives his three tips: 1. Take care of your mindset and don’t blame others for your own suffering. 2. Bank your stem cells. 3. Adopt an attitude of gratitude. [52:28] - Where can people find Harry?

E:87 Discover Your Alter Ego with Athena Rosette

Oct 24, 2017 01:01:28

Description:

Today's guest, Athena Rosette, discovered the powerful potential of having an alter ego when she switched identities with her best friend at summer camp. In the years since, she has delved into the topic by using her own alter ego for personal growth while also exploring the various roles that alter egos can play. Alter egos don’t just belong to the villains in superhero movies or comic books. In fact, each of us has an alter ego, although we might not think of it in those terms. I absolutely love the idea of an alter ego, so I can’t wait to share this episode with you!

The Mission Log: [05:12] - Athena takes a moment to clarify what an alter ego is for listeners who may not be familiar with the term or may have other associations with the term. [06:24] - We hear about Athena’s earliest experiences with alter egos, which she ties to her childhood in a Catholic home. [08:57] - Athena discusses James Lawrence, an athlete who has done something incredible through the use of an alter ego. Orion then talks about some of her own experiences, both in Japan and India. [12:19] - How did Athena develop her personas? She answers, then discusses the physiological changes that can occur after the psychological changes. [17:28] - Alter egos can be a bridge to the next version of ourselves because they make a safe space for us to have trial and error, Athena explains. [18:05] - What does Athena think about the idea that creating alter egos can create psychological side effects? [19:22] - Athena has one alter ego (not multiple), who she doesn’t name. She talks about her alter ego goddess and her belief that we, as women, are all connected through the divine feminine. [23:29] - Athena feels that there’s a natural integration happening between her and her goddess alter ego. [25:01] - We move onto the role of alter egos in the bedroom, with Athena explaining that this is one of the biggest (and most fun) ways in which people use alter egos. [28:02] - Orion talks about an earlier episode of Stellar Life featuring Jaiya, sharing a lesson about respect in the bedroom. Athena then agrees that it’s important to have boundaries in place before play starts. [29:57] - What are the steps to begin embracing your own alter ego? [32:53] - Orion points out that when you talk to people from BDSM and similar communities, you’ll find that many of the people involved are sweet, kind, successful, and happy to help and assist. [34:08] - Athena shares a story and corresponding lesson for people who are expanding their identity through their sensuality. [35:42] - Orion shifts the conversation into creating an alter ego as a form of healing, sharing some of her own experiences. [39:35] - What are some cases in which Athena saw someone embracing an alter ego as a form of healing? [42:16] - Athena talks about the difference between her and her alter ego, particularly before she started integrating the two. [45:52] - We hear Athena’s advice for women who may have gained weight that they feel self-conscious about or are otherwise unhappy with their appearance. [47:47] - Athena goes into more detail about what to do if you don’t know the answers to her questions immediately. [49:08] - One of the things Orion does a lot with her clients is mirror work, she explains, discussing what this is and how she applies it. [51:55] - Athena shares something that she’s learned through her health issues: the body is a teacher that we can learn from. [55:42] - Orion offers a piece of advice to help with Athena’s condition involving stem cell injections. [58:48] - What are Athena’s three top tips to living a stellar life? Meditate. Don’t worry so much about “getting it right.” Practice loving yourself and being thankful. [60:18] - Athena lists some places you can find her.

E85: How to Eradicate Fear and PTSD Fast: Fred Gallo

Oct 10, 2017 56:52

Description:

My guest today, Fred Gallo, is an expert in human psychology who has studied multiple therapy modalities including cognitive behavioral therapy, psychotherapy, NLP, TFD, and many more. He’s a world expert on a process called "tapping".  I saw firsthand how powerful this method is when it cured my husband’s phobias of heights and water.

About Dr. Fred Gallo, Ph.D.
Fred Gallo on Facebook

The Mission Log: [03:50] - Fred talks about who he is and describes his background. He also introduces the concept of tapping. [06:01] - We hear a specific example of how tapping helped one of Fred’s clients. [09:13] - Was Fred surprised by how quickly and powerfully tapping worked for this client? He answers, then discusses another, even more powerful instance in which tapping helped the same client. [12:58] - Fred had worked with this client for many months using different techniques before she achieved the breakthroughs that she achieved through tapping, he explains. [14:57] - Orion points out that Fred started working with a relatively small issue with this client, which built the trust necessary to face the bigger, deeper issue. [16:33] - We hear that Fred has helped Orion’s husband, Stephan, with two deep fears he held: heights and water. Fred goes into depth about how completely Stephan overcame these fears with the help of tapping. [19:10] - Did Fred do another tapping treatment on Stephan before the next canoe ride, or were the effects from the previous session still effective? [21:51] - What are Fred’s spiritual beliefs, and how are they involved in the ways he treats people? As he answers, he shares some incredible things that have happened throughout his life journey, including how he ended up treating Tony Robbins. [27:17] - Fred explains why Tony Robbins thought that he was “the man” before they had met for the first time. [29:03] - Does tapping work (and offer benefits) for everybody? It’s very effective for most people, Fred answers, but a few don’t like it. [31:00] - Fred gives an example of a case in which tapping was a permanent cure for a young woman’s emotional trauma. [38:25] - Orion points out that Fred’s tapping is unique because of his background in other therapies. Fred then explains that while people can do tapping on themselves to some extent, they likely won’t need to. [41:29] - Does Fred feel that some people are attached to their memories and are afraid to let go, perhaps because they are attached to their victim mentality? In his answer, he digs into a case in which a man who was sabotaging his life didn’t believe that he would ever be happy. [48:26] - Visualization isn’t necessary, Fred explains, but explains how it can be helpful. He also offers a strategy for getting around it for people who struggle with visualizing things. [50:55] - Fred talks about his strategies for treating ADHD. [54:45] - Where can people find Fred and learn more about what he does?

Sanjay Sabnani is here today to explain the difference between “the listener” and what we identify as “the self.” Close your eyes and picture a woman you deeply care about.

There’s no doubt that putting down others  feels wrong, so why do we do it to ourselves? Listen to the conversation to hear how  Sanjay has been inspired to break through and discover a deeper truth, and learn from his experiences.

The Mission Log: [05:42] - Lisa starts off by talking about who she is, what she does, and what her passion is.

[09:59] - Lisa talks about her healing journey and how she regained her confidence after a life-changing car accident. She then shares a story about the moment that her life changed for the better. [13:54] - Is the woman who prompted this change in Lisa’s life still in contact with her? [15:15] - We hear what Lisa did after this life-changing moment.

[50:25] - Orion discusses the fear of stepping outside of your comfort zone and the illusion of safety in your job.

[16:59] - What can listeners do to see themselves in a more empowered way, or to see themselves in the image of God? [20:00] - Liana has ten different business cards, each with a different saying. One of these says “Be proud of your assets, not ashamed of your flaws.” [22:00] - People think that they’re always at the behest of what’s going on in the world, Liana points out.

[44:10] - Do people do something ceremonial to say goodbye to meaningful clothing pieces during her closet cleanses?

Aug 8, 2017 53:09

Description:

Do you own your gifts and the areas of your life where you are a realized master? If you are not sure, today’s episode of Stellar Life is for you. This is a show I really enjoyed making as I talked with Kris Dillard about realizing where we are masters, owning our gifts, and quieting the mind.

Connect With Kris:


powerofquiet.com

The Mission Log: [03:51] - Kris starts things off by telling us a bit about himself, how he grew up, and how he transitioned from his work as a software developer into a life full of self-discovery. [05:25] - What is the method Kris uses and promotes, and why does he find it so powerful? [09:05] - What you’ll see when you use this method, Kris explains, is that the amazing version of yourself that you’ll discover during the process has always been there. [10:14] - The number-one reason many people sleepwalk through life is desire, Kris points out, and links this to both Buddhism and Christianity. Orion disagrees, so Kris explains what he means in more depth. [11:58] - Orion steps in to reveal that she thinks that desire is the most important thing a person can have, and offers examples. Kris then expands on what Orion has been saying and discusses the fact that the mind functions in pictures, not words. [14:40] - Kris explains that, keeping in mind that the mind uses pictures, if you want something, your mind pictures a lack of having the thing it wants.

[20:02] - We learn more about how to use the method that Kris has been describing. He offers an exercise for listeners to explore his technique. [24:20] - When Orion observes this process, she would expect some people who go through it to get stuck in the negativity for a long time. She and Kris then discuss how to handle this. [27:10] - How does judgment fit into Kris’ world? Is it a good thing or a bad thing? [29:55] - We hear more about what people experience during Kris’ course. He points out that most people come because they’re facing specific pain points or challenges. [31:25] - Sensation is never explainable, Orion points out, and shares her experience at Oneness University in India. [32:25] - How do past lives and reincarnation fit into the method? [34:06] - Kris believes that life is really about freedom, and that we’re on this planet to discover who we are. He then talks about how to know when a master is realized. He and Orion then talk about how charging money for something relates to a master being all-giving. [37:52] - We hear about Kris’ thoughts on meditation, which he describes as being passive. He then offers an active technique. [41:42] - Orion returns to something Kris said about negative emotions. She shares her own thoughts on emotions. [43:34] - Kris expands on his own thoughts about emotions in response to what Orion has been saying. [45:30] - What do you do in the moment if someone provokes a negative feeling in you (for example, with road rage or aggressive driving)? [49:17] - Kris offers his definition of happiness. Orion then shares hers in response. [50:42] - What are Kris’ three top tips for living a stellar life? 1. Let go of disapproving of yourself. 2. Give yourself love and approval. 3.

E73: Sheila Kelley - The Movement of the Feminine

Jul 18, 2017 51:41

Description:

Sheila Kelley is the founder of a movement called S Factor which is a sensual movement practice that unleashes the feminine mind, body, heart, and soul. Many women today are locked into their masculine energy in ways that show up in their physical movements, even if their other mannerisms and characteristics are strikingly feminine. This is especially visible in the hips and shoulders, which are rigidly locked in many women instead of being loose, flowing, and feminine. Today, we talk about unleashing the feminine body through movement, pole dancing, and more.

The Mission Log: [02:53] - Sheila gives a brief introduction for listeners who may not yet be familiar with who she is and what she does. She then explains how she got into the kind of movement she now teaches others in S Factor. [05:01] - What happens when a woman connects with her body? [06:05] - Sheila talks about some transformations that she has seen in her students. [07:35] - We hear how Sheila gets her ideas or -- as she puts it -- listens to what the body has to say to her. [10:36] - Orion takes a moment to share her own experiences with Sheila’s work. Shelia then talks about the difference between who she was at the beginning of this journey and who she is today. [13:52] - Sheila discusses her ways of infusing love and a sense of sisterhood into her S Factor community. [16:41] - There is nowhere on the planet for a woman to safely and fully embrace who she is, Sheila points out, which is what S Factor aims to provide. [17:43] - How can Sheila help a listener who has body shame? In her answer, she shares a story about her three-year-old daughter. [19:25] - Sheila offers more advice for someone who isn’t feeling great about their body, and she and Orion discuss the importance of movement as an aspect of femininity. [22:36] - Sheila talks about how to transition from the energy of unguarded (and vulnerable) femininity present in her retreats back into everyday life. [25:53] - One of the things that Orion loves about Sheila’s method is that women learn it for themselves rather than for other people. [28:20] - Orion shares a story about her recent experience while driving home from a seminar in San Diego. [29:01] - Can anyone do pole dancing? [31:01] - Sheila points out that part of the job of a leader is to help awaken those who don’t know that they’re sleeping. [32:15] - In Sheila’s perspective, what is the difference between “feminine” and “masculine” energy? She answers, then talks about how to bring one’s feminine side into the business world, which is generally very masculine. [35:51] - If the feminine doesn’t rise, the whole planet will be a disaster, Sheila explains. [36:29] - Sheila talks about the primal circle and the important role of femininity. [38:33] - Orion reveals something she learned on a visit to her family in Israel. Sheila then offers a story of her own about discoveries through travel. [40:52] - We move on to talking about alter egos and the 10 icons that Sheila mentioned briefly earlier in the conversation. She then discusses how making physical changes can also have emotional impacts. [45:06] - Sheila lists the icons or energies that she has been talking about.

Jun 20, 2017 36:28

Description:

Today, I have an amazing conversation with Certified Spiritual Healer Maria Kellis, who shares how to create miracles in our lives the same way she created miracles in her life. Marie was working in the fast paced startup world where she was burning the candle at both ends and letting stress envelop her life, when she got a huge wakeup call and ended up in a wheelchair. Learn how Marie turned her biggest challenge into her biggest gift as she made the decision of what her life was going to be.

She answers, then shares some of the lesson she learned from the experience. [05:59] - Orion digs deeper into Maria’s pain, which was not only physical; her fiance left her during the experience. [08:16] - In 2012, Maria had her biggest accident, which was also an enormous gift, as she describes here. [10:02] - Orion talks about a recent conversation she had about a near-death experience. Maria then describes what she experienced. [12:55] - After coming back from her incredible near-death experience, what is Maria’s relationship with time now?

[16:22] - God is an experience, not a concept, Orion explains. She then clarifies what she means. [16:53] - Maria shares the experience that she offered a moment ago, explaining that she shifted reality while thinking she was in the dream world.

E67: 7 Habits of FAILURE that sabotage your success: Nick Cownie

Jun 6, 2017 01:00:32

Description:

Nick Cownie is an Australian mindset change expert, the author of 7 Minute Mindset, and an in-demand speaker, coach, and mentor to thousands of people across the world. As Nick explains, the seven things that most often prevent people from living the lives they want are all contained within the word FAILURE itself, and this is an easy way to remember and recognize them.He’s someone who has helped me personally with my mindset, and I’m excited for him to share his wisdom and insight with you today!

The Mission Log: [02:54] - Nick starts things off by sharing a little about what he does. He also reveals the impact that the events that occurred the day after he turned 21 have had on his life path. [06:38] - We learn more about how Nick dealt with his PTSD, and how this led him to get involved with neuro-linguistic programming (NLP). [10:58] - What is the fast phobia cure from NLP? As he answers, Nick explains that this cure is also called visual-kinesthetic dissociation. [13:47] - Nick goes into more depth about what he means by “fluff” in NLP, which he has just mentioned he finds to be a problem. [15:55] - Most of Nick’s clients these days are people looking to dramatically increase the effectiveness of their sales team, he explains. He also reveals that you can trace almost any issue anyone has to one of two things: fear and feelings about (lack of) worthiness. [21:06] - Nick points out that very few people are genuinely in a -10 scenario by the scale he has just been talking about. He then discusses how he helps people who are on the negative side of this scale. [24:32] - Nick explains that there are seven things that people do that stop them from living the kind of life they want, which fit into the acronym FAILURE. [25:01] - The first issue in the FAILURE acronym is fear. As he discusses this topic, Nick explores the difference between fear and anxiety. [28:19] - The letter “A” in this acronym stands for attention displacement, which means that you’re putting your attention in the wrong place at the wrong time. [29:53] - “I” stands for indecision. In explaining the role of indecision in not living the life you want, Nick shares a powerful quote: “Every decision should be made within the space of seven breaths.” He then reveals what an incredible difference this concept has made in his life. He and Orion then discuss the importance of exchanging value instead of getting things for free. [37:27] - We’ve now reached the “L” in FAILURE, which is lack of action. The opposite habit of lack of action is not actually just action, but rather consistent action. In explaining this, he talks about making what he calls micro-commitments. [41:50] - “U” stands for unrealistic expectations, which is particularly relevant now in the era of internet marketers. Nick and Orion discuss the Law of Attraction and the importance of taking action. [45:25] - “R” is for repeating patterns. As Nick points out, all six points so far have been internal. [46:08] - “E” stands for external negative influences, and is the first (and only) of the points that is about what happens to you through no doing of your own. [48:28] - What are some quick things listeners can do to break through their own negative habits? The two ways that change happen are inside-out and outside-in, Nick explains. He then offers insight to help listeners immediately start breaking the FAILURE habits. [56:06] - Nick offers his three top tips to living a stellar life. 1. Choose freedom. 2. Defy expectations. 3. Don’t die waiting. [59:06] - Nick lists some ways people can find him online. Links and Resources:

E66: Powerful Presentations & Storytelling: Louis DiBianco

May 30, 2017 01:03:02

Description:

Today we're talking with Louis Di Bianco, a professional storyteller with experience as a screen and stage actor, teacher, and business presentation coach. A great scene often throws the audience into the middle of a conflict that’s already happening, immediately arousing their curiosity and drawing their attention. He brings his experience to help us become clear, powerful communicators and superstars who can tell their stories in ways that are engaging, compelling, and breathtaking.

Connect With Louis:

The Mission Log: [03:27] - We start things off by learning a little bit about Louis, what he does, and how he got started in storytelling as a child. He then shares his roundabout life story, which includes ending up studying the unlikely field of accounting. [08:26] - Louis actually enjoyed the study of accounting, he reveals, but knew it wasn’t his lifelong career. He then shares more of his story, describing his change of major to English literature and how he eventually used his acting skills to teach business-people. [12:28] - How did Louis translate his skills on stage to the business world, and what are some of the most important things that he taught these people to do? [13:56] - Louis offers one tip that will immediately help listeners become better presenters, involving an “in late, out early” approach to speeches and presentations. [20:27] - We learn another possible way to compellingly open a speech: starting with a question. He offers a few examples in response to topics Orion suggests, and then offers an example of using a prop instead of a question. [24:05] - How does Louis come up with these brilliant openers? In response, he demystifies the idea of brilliance, explaining that “everyone is brilliant.” [27:28] - Louis describes what he believes is one of the most important keys to powerful communication: using all five of your senses. [30:08] - Louis gives us a rule that he offers people from his acting experience: “show, don’t tell.” He elaborates on what he means by this, tying it into his previous point of addressing all five senses. [31:30] - We learn more about how Louis’ stage acting experience contributes to his storytelling, from his perspective. He and Orion then talk about the importance of body language. [35:48] - Does Louis memorize a script for his presentation, or have general cues and then go with the flow from there? [38:16] - Louis discusses ways to remember the bulletpoints. He and Orion then discuss the potential issues with PowerPoint. Louis then talks about a complete template for doing a powerful presentation every time, which he calls the “Frankenstein template.” [40:11] - Louis and Orion discuss Frankenstein. Louis then shares how the Frankenstein concept relates to creating a compelling presentation. [44:37] - We learn what Louis means by the “message” in the presentation: it’s the one thing that your entire presentation is about, that you want people to remember even if they forget everything else. [45:46]- Louis goes through the different parts of a presentation, linking each of these to body parts to continue his Frankenstein analogy. He gives a specific example of a presentation and how he would apply these concepts. [51:13] - Orion steps in for a moment to discuss the importance of bringing things home for people in a powerful way. Louis elaborates this, offering specific examples again. [53:51] - What does Louis do throughout the presentation for persuasion to plant seeds for the final call to action? [55:09] - What are Louis’ three tips to living a stellar life? 1. The moment you open your eyes in the morning, turn your mind to gratitude. 2. Don’t begin your day until you know how it’s going to end. 3. Don’t blame, don’t complain, and don’t explain. [58:35] - Louis talks about where listeners can find him: his podcast Change Your Story, Change Your Life (where Orion is featured on an episode!). You can also find this podcast on iTunes. He mentions his book Persuasion Genie, and offers a free copy to the first 10 Stellar Life listeners who reach out to him at lousclub@gmail.com.

[32:44] - Another of Cami’s tips is to let other people talk first, as she explains here. She also advises strongly against simply asking “what do you do?”, and offers advice on what to do next time someone asks you that question. [38:58] - How do you take it from the networking stage and into the real world? Orion offers herself up as an example of someone who struggles with the follow-up part. [43:18] - Communication and rapport-building isn’t taught in school, Cami points out. [46:58] - Cami did something really impressive with Orion, as we learn here.

[50:18] - Orion brings up the topic of introverts and extroverts, and why she finds the duality problematic. Cami agrees that putting ourselves in boxes is limiting. [53:12] - What are Cami’s three tips to living a stellar life? 1. If you want to step into who you want to be, change your playgrounds and your playmates. 2. Feed your mind by making deliberate choices about what you read and listen to. 3. If you have to choose between the two, be ignorance on fire instead of knowledge on ice. Links and Resources:

Assess what slowing down would mean for me. Make a conscious daily effort to slow down in to avoid burnout. Links and Resources:

[22:47] - Antia elaborates on why you should meet someone in person quickly when online dating, especially with an anxious attachment style. [24:59] - We learn about the benefits of treating every date as a first date, and what that means in practical terms. [26:16] - In terms of getting intimate, Antia doesn’t have a system. Instead, it’s something to do when you feel in alignment and you desire it, not when you’re asking yourself whether you “should.” [28:30] - What does being vulnerable mean to Antia? [31:15] - Antia talks about what to wear when you go out on dates. Her color advice depends on the kind of man you tend to attract, and to avoid letting your clothes wear you instead of the other way around. [37:27] - Authenticity is “100%” important in a relationship, Antia says, and explains why. [39:11] - What are some red flags when you’re dating someone new? She gives some advice on how to steer clear of manipulative and emotionally abusive men. [42:56] - Antia discusses how to set boundaries, and how to communicate it when you have a problem with something your significant other did. [46:47] - What are Antia’s three tips to leaving a stellar life? #1: Really be yourself. If you want to dance or skip or sing, do it! #2: Be authentic, and speak your truth. #3: When you’re dating or with your man, make sure you have some other way to create that same emotional tonality outside of your relationship. [49:19] - Antia talks about where to find her and what she offers, including free coaching at howtofindtherightman.com.

 

Your Pre-Flight Checklist: You attract who you’re being. If you find you’re attracting the wrong kind of men, take a close look at yourself and identify how you’re similar to them. Identify which of the two types of women you are. One type of woman learns through relationships, and the other kind of woman learns outside of relationships. If you’re single, work on preparing yourself. Remember that you could meet your life partner any day, so become the woman you want to be for that event.

[25:40] - What makes a woman attractive to a man? Alison’s somewhat surprising answer is that instead of worrying about being attractive, you should show that you’re attracted to him. [30:00] - Orion talks about her Awaken Your Inner Goddess Challenge. She then asks Alison’s advice for what women should do to heal themselves. In her answer, Alison emphasizes the importance of forgiving oneself. [37:09] - When Alison talks about “owning,” is that public or private? And how do we get to a place of owning ourselves and our actions? [40:12] - Alison talks about Valentine’s Day, starting with her aversion to its disempowering history and false beginning. [44:44] - Money is like a man, Allison says, and explains the connection. Again, she emphasizes the need to be impressed and appreciative. [46:42] - Alison offers her advice on healing from betrayal, trusting again, and rediscovering faith in love. Much of this revolves around unspoken expectations on both parts. {53:02] - What are Alison’s three tips for living a stellar life? 1. Figure out what your shortlist (of things you truly need) is. 2. Make clear to everyone who you care about what your needs are, and ask if they’ll provide it to you. 3. Assess whether the shortlist of what people are able to provide to you matches the shortlist of what you need. Your Pre-Flight Checklist: Try to avoid asking a man a relationship question unless you want a literal answer. He’s more likely to try to genuinely answer it than to take any hint you intended with the question. Don’t take it personally if your guy answers your questions about his day with “good” or “fine.” It’s his hunter instinct to conserve energy showing itself. Be direct about what you want or need from your partner. You need to provide clarity if you want your partner to provide what you’re asking for. Links and Resources:

E50: Beyond Mars and Venus: John Gray

Feb 7, 2017 01:05:02

Description:

Today's guest is John Gray, the author of one of the top 10 most influential books of the last quarter century, Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus. He explains how to find a balance between our masculine and feminine sides, how to balance our hormones, and how to form and maintain a soulful, fulfilling, balanced relationship.

The Mission Log: [02:52] - It’s good to get good nutrition, John says, and explains how this relates to romantic relationships. [03:51] - John clearly makes the link between nutrition and hormonal balance, and, in turn, to interpersonal and romantic relationships. [06:57] - The social line between the sexes has blurred, but biologically and hormonally, we’re still distinct. John talks about the challenges and potential for fulfillment that come along with these changes, and mentions his new book Beyond Mars and Venus. [10:11] - What’s John’s definition of masculine versus feminine? In his answer, John talks about testosterone and estrogen levels in both men and women. [15:22] - John talks about how a combination of independence and dependence (or interdependence) looks in practical terms. [17:05] - We learn how being a tyrant is a sign of a man being too far onto his female side. [20:06] - The most destructive thing for a man to do in relationships is to express his anger and fears, or share his vulnerability, with his partner. [21:30] - John discusses what it means for a man to be manly, or to be too far on his female side. He also talks about physical and emotional connections. [26:30] - The real need for men is to feel successful, while for women it’s to nurture. [29:26] - What can a woman do to connect to her feminine side? [34:08] - John explains what vasopressin is, and the function it serves in men and women respectively. [40:20] - How can a single woman find her anchor, security, and self-love in preparation for Valentine’s Day? John’s first piece of advice is to find a boyfriend, which you can do by lowering your standards. Focus on creating a lack of loneliness instead of looking for a soulmate. [45:00] - The secret of learning how to communicate is for women to start sharing whatever they’re feeling, preferably with a man, but with a woman if you can’t find a guy to listen. [46:23] - John talks about when a woman should have sex with a man. When you’re dating, don’t have sex to please a man; make him earn it. When you’re married, it becomes okay to have sex for him if his desire is stronger, but not in the early stages. [49:05] - We hear about John’s daughter Lauren, who provides counterintuitive advice to women: don’t ask men a lot of questions. Let him be interested in you and bond with you by asking questions. Have opinions, but don’t just be opinionated. [52:05] - The most important aphrodisiac for women is to relax. In terms of food, though, the best for women is beets, which contain lithium and therefore release oxytocin. John recommends watching the related video on his site for more information. [55:45] - In the five days around ovulation, a woman’s estrogen levels double, increasing her need for attention, affection, romance, and touch. [56:59] - John had Parkinson’s 16 years ago, but figured out a natural solution for it and restored his brain using super-minerals and amino acids. He then talks about the shakes he has formulated for men and women. [60:59] - John’s testosterone levels now are 25% higher than they were when he was a young man, he reveals. For the average man at his age, testosterone levels are around half of what they were at a younger age. [62:04] - What are John’s three tips for living a stellar life? 1. Single women on Valentine’s Day, plan a fun date with a girlfriend (or own your independent side). 2. Continue to grow in your knowledge and wisdom of how to love more and be loved more. 3. Have a mission and purpose, and get closer to it every day. Your Pre-Flight Checklist: Commit to improving your nutrition. Good nutrition contributes to overall good health, which helps you successfully create healthy relationships. Read John’s new book, Beyond Mars and Venus. It addresses changing relationship dynamics and gender roles, as well as biological differences between the genders. Women, if you’re feeling overwhelmed, it might be because you’re leaning too far toward your masculine side. Relax and rediscover your own femininity. Links and Resources:

The Co-Pilot:

In this conversation, I had the incredible pleasure of speaking with an absolutely amazing woman: Sally Anderson. She’s a world-renowned leadership coach, inspirational speaker, author and master trainer, who has decades of experience coaching the top levels in the corporate world.

Sally certainly hasn’t had an easy time of it. However, as she explains in this conversation, she transformed a shocking, heart-wrenching, traumatic experience into a life story that led her to become the amazing person she is today. She also talks about how important it is to silence your inner critic, and explores the steps you can take to feel inspired and empowered in a lasting way, rather than just for days or weeks at a time.

She then recounts the inability of her family and society to acknowledge her trauma, and the resulting dysfunction. [07:06] - We learn that Sally is at the forefront of leadership services providing a sustainability element of personal and professional transformation.

She then explores the problem with thinking that you’ll be happy once you achieve a certain goal. [19:07] - Forgiving people isn’t the first step in healing, Sally says, then explains what the real first step is. [19:55] - Sally discusses the difference between analytical forgiveness versus experiential forgiveness. [21:10] - We hear about Sally’s experience on 60 Minutes. [22:22] - How do you acknowledge that you are being your own worst perpetrator?

Here, she explains how she transformed her life and allowed that to happen. [44:07] - Orion shares an overview of her own journey as it relates to healing and love. [47:41] - In Sally’s perspective, what is a leader? [51:19] - What are Sally’s three tips to leading a stellar life? 1. Beliefs run your life, so get disciplined in retraining your thought patterns. 2. Do whatever you can to form a new relationship with your spoken word. 3. Take responsibility, and don’t use excuses like not having enough time, money, or energy prevent you from reclaiming your power. Your Pre-Flight Checklist: First, take a moment to figure out what was the most traumatic event of your life. Next, write down at least five positive things that have resulted from it. Write down your desires in each of the four main areas of transformation: money, love, vocation, and well-being. In the last five years, what sustained changes have you made in each of those four areas? Write down a specific list for each area of transformation. Links and Resources:

Description:

Mission #48

On Board: Dr. Pat Allen
Mission: Love and Relationships

The Co-Pilot:

Dr. Pat Allen, known as the Love Doctor, has been featured all over for her relationship expertise. She has made many appearances on the Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, Bravo, Millionaire Matchmaker, Fox 11 News, and many more.

In addition to her media appearances, Pat is a bestselling author, a speaker, a psychotherapist, and a communication and relationship expert. She has written many books, including Getting to “I Do,” Staying Married and Loving It, and The Truth About Men. Her newest book, It’s a Man’s World and a Woman’s Universe, will be released soon.

The Mission Log: [01:45] - Pat starts things off by telling us the basics about herself: she’s 82, widowed, with four children, seven grandchildren, and a boyfriend. [2:14] - What got Pat interested in relationships? She answers, then explains how she bases her study of relationships on science. [03:24] - We hear about the differences between men and women in biological terms, with Pat explaining that all fetuses are female for a few days. She then lists several famous men who have (or had) the brain structure of a woman. [08:18] - What’s the best way to deal with a man? Pat’s answer depends on whether the man in question is right-handed or left-handed. [09:36] - What are the things that keep single women up at night? “They haven’t decided to be either a woman with a career or a career woman,” Pat replies, then elaborates on what she means. [10:46] - Pat offers up two pledges, one for men and one for women. The differences between the two reveal the differences between the genders, which she uses to clarify the problem she discussed a moment ago in her friend’s relationship. [13:22] - We hear about how women shift into becoming more like men during and after menopause. [14:27] - What advice does Pat have for young, entrepreneurial women who have a hard time finding a man? [16:28] - Gay couples have the same energy as heterosexual couples, Pat explains, with gay couples having a top (left-lobe) man and a bottom (feminine) man. Lesbian couples involve a butch woman and a femme. She then goes on to talk about codependency, and discusses The Evolution of Desire by David Buss. [21:02] - How can a single woman feel and be more attractive and desirable? Pat’s answer is to be healthy (which she acknowledges may take a lot of doctors). She then discusses how Eric Berne tweaked Freud’s ideas. [24:42] - Part of the journey for single women is to get in touch with the inner child. [26:34] - If you and your husband are running a business together, you can make an appointment to be two men, but it needs to be a business. It’s when you’re trying to be a couple that you need to be a man and a woman. [29:14] - What is it like to act like a woman in a relationship? [30:10] - Pat discusses online dating, and gives more advice on being a woman in a relationship with a man, including not to mother him and to acquiesce to his decisions. [32:47] - What should a woman have in her online dating profile? Pat’s main piece of advice is to market what you want to be in a relationship. [33:52] - When should a single woman have sex with her date? “When she has a contract. Either that or she’s a prostitute and she’s gonna get her money.” Pat then advises women to decide whether they want to get laid or paid, and make their dating decisions accordingly. [35:30] - Before you have a contract with a man, you can do anything except penile insertion. [37:10] - Orion asks how we can trust men. Pat answers that she doesn’t trust anybody. [38:42] - If you give real men free sex, they’ll enjoy it, but men don’t marry vaginas. If they do marry you after you had a passionate courtship, though, don’t be surprised if he asks, “Who is he?” the first time you come home five minutes late. [39:26] - What is Pat’s best dating advice? [40:40] - What is the main problem? Men are in charge of junk (like buying and selling) while we women are in charge of the air of love (accepting, rejecting, and tolerating). [42:25] - A woman should wait until she’s been with somebody for at least a year before getting married. [43:14] - Pat’s advice for single ladies coping with Valentine’s Day is to go dancing. They should then flirt with their eyes; let the man do the speaking. Just look in his eyes and smile. [46:45] - What are Pat’s three tips for living a stellar life? She recommends the book Outwitting the Devil by Napoleon Hill. Second, she advises taking care of your body. Finally, know how to negotiate (not intimidate) and seduce people. [48:08] - Pat talks about her show, which is on talk radio every Thursday from 5-6 pm. Your Pre-Flight Checklist: Ladies, when dealing with right-handed men, try not to combine feelings and thoughts; they can handle one at a time, but not both. Treat your body in a healthy way, especially if you’re looking for a man. Men pick with their eyes, Pat explains, so respect your body. If you’re a career woman most of the time, practice transitioning into becoming a woman with a career outside of your work hours. Links and Resources:

E47: Beyond The E-Myth-From a Company of One to a Company of 1000: Michael E. Gerber

Jan 17, 2017 40:03

Description:

Mission #47

On Board: Michael E. Gerber
Mission: Beyond The E-Myth-From a Company of One to a Company of 1000

The Co-Pilot:

In this episode, I have the honor of having a conversation with the renowned Michael Gerber, who you probably recognize as the mega-bestselling author of 28 ‘E-Myth’ books, in The New York Times™, Business Week, Inc. Magazine, FORTUNE, Forbes and Wired. Perhaps his most famous book is his original: The E-Myth, which has sold over 5 million copies. Luckily for all of us, he just released another book, Beyond the E-Myth. Better yet, you can download the first chapter of Beyond the E-Myth for free by clicking here.

Michael’s emphasis on creating duplicatable business systems has caught on over the years. In 1995, the Wall Street Journal named The E-Myth the #1 business book of all time, and it’s been voted the #1 business book by Inc. 500 CEOs. Michael’s work is available in 145 countries and 29 languages, so it’s no wonder Inc Magazine calls Michael “The World’s #1 Small Business Guru.” In our conversation, Michael shares wonderful insights into how to turn just about anything into a business that’s both meaningful and profitable.

The Mission Log: [03:33] - Michael launches things off by talking a bit about himself. We learn that he’s spent decades specializing in working with small business owners. [05:30] - In his early days, Michael was a jazz saxophone player, then an encyclopedia salesman, then filled a handful of other unexpected roles. He also shares the role his mother played in his life. He also elaborates on how he got involved in the world of small business. [11:11] - Michael discusses his discovery that most small business owners didn’t understand business, and explains how stopping at a McDonald’s made everything click for him. [13:07] - What is the E-myth? Michael talks about the difference between true entrepreneurs and “technicians suffering from an entrepreneurial seizure.” [14:40] - What are these technicians missing? In his answer, Michael talks about how to take a company of one to a company of one thousand, which is the subject of his new book. [16:45] - Michael talks about the eight steps that form the system in Beyond the E-Myth. The first four steps are these: 1. Developing a dream. 2. Developing a vision. 3. Developing a purpose. 4. Developing a mission. [18:41] - Why those four? Because those are the four products of the four personalities of an entrepreneur, Michael explains. [21:33] - Orion steps in for a moment to rephrase and clarify what Michael has been saying. He agrees with what she says, then elaborates on it. [22:56] - How do you find the right story? Michael answers, and clarifies what he means about finding a story. [24:46] - Michael talks about NewCo (as opposed to OldCo). He then talks about the next four steps, as follows: 1. The job. 2. The practice. 3. The business. 4. The enterprise. This is the “hierarchy of growth,” he says. [28:48] - The job, practice, business, and enterprise system is also a process of a series of steps, Michael explains. He talks us through how this might work for a hypothetical case of helping women with relationships. [31:07] - What do you do once you have the client fulfillment system completed and written out? Next, Michael tells us, you build a turnkey client acquisition system. Lead generation, lead conversion, and client fulfillment should all be addressed in this turnkey system. [32:30] - Michael walks us through an exercise that involves better defining your business by drawing circles with spokes representing various parts of your business. [34:34] - By creating a business in the way Michael describes, you’re creating something you’ll be able to sell, Michael explains. [34:57] - How do you create a manual for every system? “It’s simple, you just learn how to do it,” Michael answers. He recommends going to his site at www.beyondemyth.com to learn more. [36:13] - What makes a good business owner? The abilities to focus your attention and to persevere are the most critical; everything else can be learned. [36:42] - Michael clarifies what he means by focusing on equity over income. [37:42] - What are Michael’s three steps to living a stellar life? What makes him happy? “What makes me happy is when my life is happy,” he shares. Creating also makes him happy, at least most of the time.

Your Pre-Flight Checklist:

Reassess where you are in life. Michael spent years finding himself before his inner entrepreneur woke, so be gentle with yourself if you haven’t found your purpose yet. Make a list of skills you have that might not be immediately obvious. Think about how these skills might apply to your current (or desired) work. Assess honestly whether you’re an entrepreneur or a technician. Have you created a business, or have you just created a job for yourself? Links and Resources:

Mission: Break the Cycle of Yo-Yo Dieting

The Co-Pilot:

Today’s guest is the absolutely lovely and inspirational Cassie Piasecki, who incorporates various aspects of real food, fitness, and the power of community to help women lead a WOW Life! If you’re not fully convinced throughout the conversation, just wait until you hear her moving story near the end about a memorable client.

As a fitness and nutrition expert, and the founder of the WOW Life Nutrition Program, Cassie knows all too well about the risk of yo-yo dieting. Her mission is to help women avoid this destructive pattern and achieve long-lasting weight loss by forming good habits and incorporating a total mindset shift.

The Mission Log: [07:07] - Cassie gives some statistics and numbers about weight gain and loss over the holidays, including the scary fact that most people only lose about half of the weight they gain over this time period. [09:36] - The word “restriction” as it relates to dieting doesn’t work for Cassie, and she explains why. In the process, she illuminates the problem with other words with negative connotations that we often use in relation to diets. [11:41] - What language would Cassie use to replace the words that don’t work for her, like “restriction,” “willpower,” and “cheating”? [13:33] - Cassie talks about how she got into the field of health and fitness. We hear about her first attempt to lose weight, which involved learning about portion control. She also discusses how hard it was for her to maintain her weight during the years following her initial success. [16:58] - We hear more about Cassie’s problems with dieting, specifically the issues she had with diet pills. She then discusses her sugar cravings and the related problems. [18:42] - Around the same time, Cassie was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and rheumatoid arthritis. [20:26] - When Cassie was around 40, she started to get more into nutrition to help her mood and her thyroid. [21:36] - Cassie talks about how she cut out sugar in her diet. [25:41] - We hear about all the negative life effects related to eating poorly, and the concepts of wheels of wellness and unwellness that these effects inspired Cassie to create. [27:18] - Orion steps in for a moment to recommend two books to listeners: Sugar Blues, which explains the effects of sugar, and Wheat Belly, which discusses the effects of gluten. [28:12] - Cassie explains that it’s hard for the average person (without a deep background in health and nutrition) to see personal connections between sugar or gluten and inflammation or disease. Instead, it’s easier to approach the subject from an angle related to mood or sleep quality. [31:25] - Orion talks about her experience growing up in Israel and how it compares to typical food choices in the US. [32:23] - How does Cassie convince people to eat more vegetables? Orion chimes in and offers a tip about starting your day with protein and fat instead of protein and carbs, which Cassie supports. [36:20] - Cassie shares her new food addiction: rice tortillas by Food For Life. [36:43] - Orion talks about her previous episode with Dave Asprey. [37:38] - What are the bad fats that we should avoid? In her answer, Cassie emphasizes the importance of eating mindfully. [40:38] - Cassie talks about the step in between eating a standard American diet and eating a completely clean, mindful diet. She recommends doing it one meal at a time. [42:34] - There’s a lot of emotion tied to food and eating, Cassie points out, and weight gain is often a gradual process. [43:20] - What kind of diet would Cassie recommend for a vegetarian? She talks about vegetarian diets (as a vegetarian herself), especially in light of the question of getting enough protein. [46:45] - Cassie has been trying out going dairy-free, which she says is easy. She also says, however, that she hasn’t noticed feeling any different. [49:14] - We learn more about the “wheel of wellness” and the “wheel of unwellness,” with Cassie giving us a way to visualize these wheels. [52:56] - Cassie shifts into talking about the wheel of wellness, after a vivid description of the experience of being on the wheel of unwellness. [55:21] - Orion asks Cassie for an inspirational success story of one of her clients, and the one Cassie shares certainly fits the bill. [59:03] - Cassie shares her three tips for living a stellar life: 1. Do something active first thing in the morning every day. 2. Eat real food. 3. Find something every day that makes you laugh like crazy. [60:42] - Inspired yet? If so, you’ll be glad to know that Stellar Life listeners have access to a special discount for the WOW Life Nutrition Program. Use promo code “stellar” to save $25 (normal price $199.00). For more information about the program, check out this link. Your Pre-Flight Checklist: Make a list of all of the negative terms you use about dieting and food, like “cheating” and “restriction.” For each negative word on your list, come up with two or three positive words. Consciously work on changing your phrasing to these positive terms. Set yourself a challenge of giving up all sugar for three weeks. During this time, observe your body and moods closely to see what a difference this makes. Links and Resources:

The Mission Log: [04:49] - Sky starts us off by telling us a bit about who she is. [06:11] - Was Sky born confident? Has she been confident all her life? Her answer gives insight into how confidence changes depending on how far you’ve grown into living boldly. [07:22] - We hear about the problem with the idea of competing over a man, and why any man you would compete for is one you don’t want anyway. [10:06] - Sky explains that abuse is a reflection of prior self-abuse, illustrating how our experiences and environment create profound effects on our later selves. She also discusses the importance of looking to others for examples of how to reach a better life, offering her own experience in the Soviet Union to demonstrate what she means. [16:08] - High achievers and truly successful people get there by having the courage it takes to step up and do what is right for them, Sky explains. [17:58] - Sky offers a reason why people with good intentions may hold you back: because by stepping outside of your comfort zone, you’re reminding them that they’re not. [18:41] - What is confidence? Sky tells us about the two types of confidence: real and outsourced. She also mentions the book Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl and discusses how it relates to confidence. [23:33] - Sky talks about what it means to own yourself, and explains that knowing yourself is the first step. [25:27] - What does it feel like to own yourself and to own the room? [26:53] - Using the example of games, Sky talks about inhabiting various avatars. She suggests noticing how differently you show up depending on who you’re with and the circumstances you’re in. [29:37] - Orion asks whether one should try to be aware of their behavior in the moment, or to do it in retrospect. Sky encourages doing so in retrospect until you’ve had enough experience to do so in the moment. [30:54] - What is Sky’s advice for a woman who feels a lack of confidence in dating or relationships? She emphasizes the need for healing your wounds. [33:24] - Sky talks about how she uses her intuition to help each of her clients. She also touches on the challenge of achieving forgiveness. [34:28] - We hear about where blocks to forgiveness come from, and what sorts of events and incidents can shape harmful or hurtful beliefs within ourselves. She gives the example of lying as a child, and how it can become a negative cycle. [39:42] - People have more trouble forgiving themselves than others, even if they don’t realize it at first, Sky tells us. [40:38] - Sky offers several more tips for confidence. Tip #1: Stop explaining yourself (this goes especially for women). She gives a powerful explanation for this tip. [45:44] - Tip #2 is your body language. Holding a power pose for two minutes dramatically boosts your confidence level, she explains. [47:18] - Tip #3 is focus. “Where your mind goes, energy flows,” Sky tells us. She emphasizes the importance of focusing on the positive side of anything rather than the dark or negative side. [50:29] - Orion mentions Cesar Millan conducting an experiment that involved getting a scared dog to lift its head, and how this changed its personality completely. She goes on to talk about conditioning your mind to find the positive in life and other people. [54:17] - Sky offers several wonderful tips for how a woman can feel stellar. [55:52] - Sky generously offers Stellar Life listeners a gift; more details below!

E44: Set Your Voice Free: Roger Love

Dec 27, 2016 57:57

Description:

Mission #44

On Board: Roger Love
Mission: Set Your Voice Free

The Co-Pilot:

Roger Love is an incredibly compelling -- and skilled -- vocal coach to the stars. His long list of famous clients includes, among many others, Demi Lovato, Gwen Stefani, Reese Witherspoon, and even the renowned Tony Robbins.

As you may have gathered from this snippet of his client list, Roger is one of the world’s leading authorities on voice. In fact, he’s the most commercially successful vocal coach in the speaking and singing fields. He’s been teaching voice since he was just 16 years old, and he brings all this talent and experience to this conversation.

The Mission Log:

[04:10] - We hear about Roger’s background, including his early passion for singing and how this led him into teaching stars as a teenager. He also explains how this led him into becoming a speaking coach. [08:13] - Does Roger think everyone can sing, or are there some people who just can’t? Some people are born with better voices than others, he says, but everyone has an original and unique voice. Even people born without great instruments have the potential to do well if they work hard at it. [10:42] - Roger gives the example of Pavarotti, who decided to be a singer at around 35. [11:44] - Roger discusses his love for taking people like Orion -- who loved singing as a child -- and helping them incorporate musicality into their speaking voices. He also explains that you only have about a second to make your first impression through speaking. [14:45] - What are the five components of voice and how can we best use them? They’re pitch, pace, tone, melody, and volume. He gives some tips on volume, melody, pace. [21:03] - Most people believe there are only two voices: chest voice and head voice. This can lead to speakers or singers getting trapped in one voice or the other because of the difficulty of transitioning between the two. Middle voice gives people the ability to sing between these two ranges without the voice breaking. Roger also explains why the middle and head voice are important even to speakers. [26:05] - Sound waves from your voice vibrate the bodies of listeners. Roger explains why this is important. He also says that the people who sing or speak in the way he teaches for an hour a day increases life expectancy up to eight years (among several other benefits that he lists). [29:25] - Roger tells us how he helped Tony Robbins keep from losing his voice and work through the tremendous amount of wear and tear on his voice. [31:10] - John Gray’s voice wouldn’t work for Tony Robbins, and vice versa, and Roger demonstrates why. He then goes on to talk about how important it is to have different sounds and voices for each character you need to play. [35:52] - “People all need to think about voice first,” Roger tells us. He emphasizes the importance of voice in interactions, and mentions his forthcoming book Set Your Voice Free. It’s a new, expanded edition of his first book, containing everything he’s learned in the 16 years since the original edition came out. [37:02] - Roger talks about what he calls “overlapping frequencies,” which he believes is why children of different genders feel connected before puberty. Once puberty happens and men and women sound different, a divide is created. Overlapping frequencies are the ranges in which men’s and women’s voices tend to overlap. [40:00] - We hear more about Roger’s new book. He also mentions that there’s a partnering website that comes with the book. [42:30] - What makes the best female speakers great? Roger emphasizes the combination of the five voice components he mentioned before, and mentions having a physiology that matches those sounds. He also talks about the problems with parallel gestures -- doing the same thing with both hands at the same time. [46:15] - Roger shares an exercise that can help speakers. Close your mouth, breathe in through your nose, and pretend there’s a balloon in your abdomen. When you breathe in, fill your abdomen; when you exhale, let your abdomen come back in. This is diaphragmatic breathing. [52:21] - Voice is one of the most important ways of establishing self-confidence, Roger tells us. [53:54] - What products of his do Roger recommend? First, he recommends his new book Set Your Voice Free again. He then recommends The Perfect Voice, for which Stellar Life listeners will receive a $50 discount! [55:38] - What are Roger’s three tips to living a stellar life? 1. Record yourself speaking and listen attentively, paying attention to your volume. 2. Record yourself again, this time focusing on having more melody and “walking up the stairs.” 3. Record yourself once more, this time speaking only while your stomach is coming in. Your Pre-Flight Checklist:

Unless you already tend to speak loudly, work on raising your volume. Don’t be afraid to speak loudly enough to be heard (by others, not just yourself).

Practice incorporating more melody into your speech. Many of us tend to speak monotonously, but incorporating melody will make your voice more compelling.

Practice shifting from downward melodies to upward stair-step melodies, as if the sound is walking up the stairs as you speak.

She shares two stories about her early days with feng shui. [09:00] - We hear about how Kathryn incorporates feng shui into her identity.

[17:59] - Kathryn talks about how to use feng shui to attract a man. Hint: having a headboard is more important than you might realize.

Kathryn says it comes down to what makes you feel comfortable, but gives some tips on what to avoid, particularly metal headboards. She also says that today’s flat-screen TVs aren’t a problem in feng shui the way older TVs were. Floral bedrooms are also a problem, she explains. [28:42] - Kathryn explains why we should avoid red walls in the bedroom, and says that any natural human skin colors are excellent colors for romance. [29:58] - We hear more of Kathryn’s history while learning about feng shui. [31:05] - What are Kathryn’s best tips and tools for creating abundance through feng shui?

[49:49] - Kathryn does a forecast every year, and offers a preview of three pieces of advice for 2017. Your Pre-Flight Checklist: What color resonates most deeply with you? Sit down with a piece of paper and jot down notes about what this color evokes or represents to better understand how it suits you. Take the calculator quizzes on Kathryn’s website to gain more insight into how best to incorporate feng shui techniques into your life and home.

Mission #42

On Board: Dr. Helen L. Irlen
Mission: Live Brighter and Better Through the Science of Color

The Co-Pilot:

Dr. Helen L. Irlen is a global leader in the area of visual processing. She’s the founder of the Irlen Method, which emphasizes the importance of color in everyday function for many people. Through years of research, she has discovered that colored glasses or filters can make an incredible difference in how people’s brains function.

Fortunately, Helen has been generous with sharing her research and knowledge. There are close to two hundred affiliated Irlen centers worldwide in 45 countries. In addition, Helen has written several books, including most notably The Irlen Revolution: A Guide to Changing Your Perception and Your Life.

Connect With Helen:

The Irlen Institute @SeeIrlen on Twitter

The Mission Log: [05:12] - Helen talks about herself and her mission in the world. To give us some insight into who she is, she tells us a few stories about her life. [08:43] - Why was Helen interested in the psych ward, and what was the driving force that motivated her to pursue her research? [11:29] - Helen goes into more detail about what the Irlen Syndrome is. She also describes the experience of working one-on-one with adults. [17:06] - How do you become a good listener? Helen says to avoid imposing your own issues on someone else, so you’re a blank slate and can really hear what people are saying. [18:51] - The Irlen Syndrome is a visual processing deficit that you can inherit or acquire (or both). It leads to difficulties in areas such as reading, academic skills, attention and concentration, depth perception, and more. [19:34] - The symptoms of Irlen Syndrome can vary, Helen explains. She also talks about the percents of people who have the syndrome. We hear about how flourescent light can be an issue for many people. [23:36] - Orion volunteers to be Helen’s guinea pig, which allows listeners to hear several minutes of Helen’s questioning process for beginning to assess whether someone might have Irlen Syndrome. [28:15] - Helen describes the issues that can be triggered for certain people by sunlight, bright lights, fluorescent lights, and so on. [29:50] - How does Helen help the people who come to her?

[39:21] - Helen speaks emotionally about the impact that her method has had on veterans and marines. [42:07] - Helen offers two funny stories of the effects that Irlen filters have had on users. [43:18] - You can inherit Irlen Syndrome, which doesn’t always show up in childhood and may present in college or later. [47:02] - What would Helen like her legacy to be? In her answer, she explains why she isn’t interested in retiring: because she can’t think of anything more rewarding than what she’s already doing every day. [50:29] - Helen shares her three top tips for living a stellar life: 1. Understand that your brain is uniquely different from anyone else’s brain. 2. Don’t buy into what other people have said to you about yourself. 3. Give yourself a hug everyday and tell yourself how wonderful you are. Your Pre-Flight Checklist: Practice becoming a better listener. Do your best to set your own issues and thoughts aside to become a blank slate and listen to what the person you’re talking to is actually saying. Think about how you feel after you’ve been focused on reading for a while. If you experience physical symptoms, you may fall on the Irlen Syndrome continuum. Take the “Long Self-Test for Irlen Syndrome.” This test will help you determine whether you’re one of the many people unknowingly suffering from Irlen Syndrome. Links and Resources:

E41: Linkedin Money Making Secrets: Brian Traichel

Description:

Mission #41

On Board: Brian Traichel
Mission: Linkedin Money Making Secrets

The Co-Pilot:

This week, you’ll have the pleasure and privilege of hearing some great LinkedIn advice and insight from a true expert, Brian Traichel. Brian discovered LinkedIn by chance in 2004, and since then has been putting it to great use to form connections and grow his business.

As he shares his best-kept secrets about LinkedIn, Brian reveals that the key is in forming meaningful connections. And it’s no wonder he has this sort of perspective, when he’s worked with greats including Brian Tracy, Michael Gerber, Tony Robbins, and Barbara De Angelis. His sales strategies are based on real connections and providing value, and in this episode, he walks listeners through exactly how to form these meaningful, authentic business relationships.

Connect With Brian:

Brian Traichel on LinkedIn
BrianTraichel on Facebook

The Mission Log: [04:28] - Brian starts things off by telling us a bit about himself, his career history, and how he discovered LinkedIn. [06:14] - Why is LinkedIn so powerful? Brian talks about the value of LinkedIn’s nature as a business site. [08:35] - Your LinkedIn profile may be the first thing people see about you online, so it needs to have the equivalent of “curb appeal,” Brian tells us. [10:02] - Brian talks about what kind of profile picture you need on your LinkedIn profile. [10:34] - In your description, you only have a few sections to capture someone’s attention. Brian lists what should be in your summary section. He goes on to talk about the 22 sections of a full LinkedIn profile, and explains what belongs in the “education” section. [13:45] - One of the roles of your LinkedIn profile is to answer questions people have about you and your skills and abilities. [14:53] - Brian reveals that he actually uses the free version of LinkedIn, not the premium version. He then goes on to estimate that 80% of his business has come through LinkedIn. [16:18] - Once you have your picture and profile filled out on LinkedIn, what do you do next? Brian’s suggestions: share your Facebook updates there as well, and join LinkedIn groups. He also describes the power of LinkedIn groups, and how they make it possible to reach thousands of people in minutes. [18:16] - Brian talks about the etiquette of connecting with people. For him, it’s all about personal connections. [19:55] - Brian shares his script for what to say when you call people from LinkedIn. His first example is of a client calling a provider, and the second is of a provider calling a potential client. In both examples, his emphasis is on making a human connection, not talking business. Once the connection is made, he suggests drip marketing. [22:59] - We learn more about drip marketing through LinkedIn. What Brian does is endorse each connection for a skill every week, so that his name will come to mind when that person needs someone who provides his services. [25:15] - Brian suggests investing at least 30 minutes a day in LinkedIn. He explains why. [26:04] - What do you do if you aren’t connected to someone and haven’t spoken with them, but want to connect with or talk to them? How is the answer different if the person isn’t in your industry? [27:33] - Brian talks about whether to accept everyone who sends you a request on LinkedIn. He accepts anyone who has at least 50 connections, a picture, and a summary. [28:36] - How many people does Brian connect with a day? How does he keep track of them? He suggests using LinkedIn’s tagging feature rather than Excel or another tracking system. [29:14] - We hear more of Brian’s thoughts on groups. He especially recommends starting your own LinkedIn group. [31:29] - Brian explains what LinkedIn Pulse is. He says it’s basically your LinkedIn feed. [32:03] - LinkedIn is better than Facebook for Brian’s purposes, and he tells us why. [32:27] - Brian gives his little-known secrets, including instructions on how to view people’s profiles invisibly and how to change how to see who can view your connections. [34:28] - The #1 thing you should never do on LinkedIn is sell to someone after they accept your LinkedIn invitation. [35:05] - Brian talks about best practices for LinkedIn groups. [37:18] - What are Brian’s three tips to living a stellar life? 1. Be your own guru (meaning you should follow your gut). He gives an example of how he did this. 2: Become a minimalist and declutter. 3: Exercise the law of non-attachment. He and Orion go on to discuss the value of non-attachment. Your Pre-Flight Checklist:

Before you go out to try to make new business connections, go through your current network. You’ll likely find people who you didn’t realize you were already connected to.

Upload a headshot to your LinkedIn profile. Your attire should be business casual. While a professional picture is great, a good iPhone picture is far better than nothing.

Rewrite your LinkedIn summary to address the following topics: who you are, what you do, what problem you solve, and how you do it.

E40: How to be Authentic in your Videos, Branding and Marketing: Sarah Michael

Mission #40

On Board: Sarah Michael
Mission: How to be Authentic in your Videos, Branding and Marketing

The Co-Pilot:

This time on Stellar Life, we have the absolute pleasure of hearing from the lovely Sarah Michael. Sarah works with spiritual entrepreneurs ready to do both inner and outer work. As the founder of Sparkling Results Coaching and the creator of Project: YOU, she guides clients toward creating a business that does good and feels good.

In this conversation, Sarah emphasizes the importance of being authentic -- and sets a wonderful example. She’s warm, engaging, and utterly herself as she walks us through women’s deepest motivations, how to come to peace with your inner cavewoman, and the best ways to communicate your message.

Connect With Sarah Michael:

Project: YOU
Talk With Sarah

The Mission Log:

[04:08] - Sarah gives us an introduction to who she is. We hear about her experience in marketing and branding, and her specialty -- what she calls “the intangible of the intangibles.” [06:18] - Most of Sarah’s work is with women, because she focuses on how feminine survival instincts show up in business. She describes how ingrained neural pathways shape women’s desires. [08:41] - “Masculine and feminine” are different from “male and female” or “men and women,” and Sarah talks about why. She then explains that the masculine urge is to protect and provide, as opposed to the feminine desire to connect. [10:26] - Sarah digs further into the differences between what constitutes safety for the masculine and feminine. [11:11] - We learn more about Project: YOU, which Sarah started after noticing that people didn’t see all of her or her work until there was already a connection. It emerged from a self-imposed authenticity challenge. [14:34] - Sarah talks about posting videos herself, this time emphasizing the importance of discernment. [17:35] - Orion and Sarah talk about the possibility of oversharing, with Sarah advising that you be careful of your details and make sure your posts and videos make sense to others. The specific advice she gives is “Don’t tell the story until you’ve stopped bleeding.” [19:38] - Does Sarah generally have an outline for her video, or does she just talk from the heart? It’s a combination, she reveals. She emphasizes authenticity, which means not scripting or memorizing things. [23:50] - Is it better to talk faster or slower in your videos? Sarah emphasizes that it’s better to speak more slowly, and gives an explanation of the science behind the reason this is important. She and Orion then debate whether to speak more or less quickly when presenting your offer. [28:11] - Sarah explains what she thinks are the biggest challenges that her community’s members in general face. First is the inner problem of not letting oneself “be enough,” second is the challenge of describing what they do in a way that others immediately understand, and third is having taken lots of training and courses, and having lots of marketing materials that don’t necessarily work together. [30:38] - How do you get over self doubts? Sarah speaks specifically to the feminine in her answer. Her answer involves creating a safe space, and she elaborates on what this safe space may be. [34:00] - Sarah talks about the possibility of declaring yourself safe. Orion responds, exploring how important it is to women to feel safe. This leads to more discussion of the differences between men and women. [37:47] - What are Sarah’s tips on refining your message?  Her biggest tip is to use what she describes as “vivid words.” These are words that paint a picture in the other person’s head as close as possible to what you mean. She gives some specific examples of abstract versus concrete words. [40:20] - Orion asks if Sarah means simplifying things in a way that a five-year-old would understand. Sarah clarifies, and she and Orion discuss the words Orion uses for what she does. [42:16] - We hear Sarah’s explanation of how people can refine their message. She says you need to identify what your clients believe their needs are, and then address those in all of your messages. [44:45] - How does Sarah build and nourish her community? She talks about the importance of receiving, as well as giving. [45:32] - The craziest thing Sarah has ever done is having gotten her belly button pierced at 24, with no forethought or planning. It was completely unlike her to jump into something like that without knowing what she was getting into. In response, Orion shares her own belly button piercing story. [48:26] - When asked about the best thing that’s ever happened to her, Sarah has a hard time coming up with just one! She settles on going to Loral Langemeier’s 3 Days to Cash workshop, which she describes as a safe space. [51:10] - Sarah gives us her three top tips for living a stellar life: 1. Know what you want your stellar life to look like. 2. Develop, cultivate, and nurture relationships that will get you there. 3. Be yourself! Be as much of yourself as possible, in all situations.

Your Pre-Flight Checklist:

What would a self-imposed authenticity challenge look like for you? Think of a few examples, and then work toward implementing them and living more authentically.

Look into Sarah’s Project: YOU. If it sounds like something that might work for you, sign up and participate wholeheartedly in the three-week process.

“Don’t tell the story until you’ve stopped bleeding.” If you’re thinking about sharing something publicly, check whether you’re still bleeding. If so, don’t share it yet.

E39: Awaken With JP- The Ultra Spiritual Guru :)!!!: JP Sears

Nov 22, 2016 57:59

Description:

Mission #39

On Board: JP Sears
Mission: Awaken With JP- The Ultra Spiritual Guru

The Co-Pilot:

“The heart and soul of all my work is helping people to help themselves,” JP Sears informs us. Perhaps best-known for his “Ultra Spiritual” series on YouTube, JP is far more than just another internet comedian. He’s a successful and effective emotional healing coach (with infinitely more genuine kindness and empathy than the self-centered and oblivious character he plays on YouTube).

In today’s episode, we learn about who JP really is. It becomes clear that his YouTube videos aren’t in fact mockery of the beliefs his character holds; instead, they’re him practicing a form of non-attachment to his own beliefs. He gently and humorously explores the importance of being exactly who you are, choosing vulnerability, and letting yourself shine.

Connect With JP:

The Mission Log: [04:24] - JP starts things off by telling us a bit about himself. [06:02] - The most spiritual experience JP has ever had is living his life unapologetically, he explains. [08:52] - What does JP do to allow himself to be himself? In his answer, he reflects on Orion’s story as well as his own past. [12:07] - When JP was growing up, he didn’t have specific role models. As a child, he looked up to various pro athletes. In hindsight, he liked “watching people express their greatness.” As an adult, his first real role model was Paul Chek of the C.H.E.K Institute. [13:24] - JP explains what drew him to Paul. [14:53] - We hear about JP’s perspective on what an “alpha male” is. He and Orion then discuss the difference between the traditional views of alpha males and the contemporary alpha male. [17:25] - What’s the craziest thing JP has ever done? After some musing over the question, he concludes that saying yes feels like the craziest thing. [19:54] - Orion takes a turn and shares the craziest things that she’s done. She and JP then discuss her experience in moving to Japan, and what profoundness she got from it. [22:04] - JP responds to being asked whether he has any phobias by saying he has a phobia of having phobias. He then goes on to give a more serious answer. [23:26] - Orion asks JP what he would take from his house if it were on fire and he only had time to grab three things. Coincidentally, it turned out he had to evacuate his house the day before. His answers are his dog Zephyr, his computer, and his video camera. [24:53] - JP explores the concept of being attached to non-attachment. He also explains how this is how he balances making the types of videos he does with his own personal beliefs. [26:67] - His ex-girlfriends are JP’s greatest teachers, he says. He then goes on to explore what he learned from his parents -- and his dog. [30:31] - After having heard from JP about his lessons from his dog Zephyr, Orion playfully discusses the three lessons that she has learned from her cat. [32:18] - JP talks about sexual energy, describing it as “a river of life that flows through us.” [35:38] - What are JP’s practices for increasing sexual energy? He clarifies that he still has a lot of work to do in overcoming old shame that he projects onto sexual energy. [39:37] - Orion talks about Jaiya and sexual blueprints, which you can hear more about in Stellar Life Episode 3. She and JP then discuss dimming our light to let others shine, and how that relates to sexual energy. [43:21] - What is the difference between being alive and truly living? [44:30] - JP talks about what he gained from his experience with Tony Robbins. [48:32] - We hear about Orion’s experiences with Tony Robbins -- and she recommends his events as a place for single people to meet like-minded singles. [50:10] - JP discusses how his friend Karen ended up becoming his assistant. His advice on hiring someone is to look for a feeling of trust. [53:28] - What are JP’s three tips for living a stellar life? 1: Seek to be who you are, not who you want to be. 2: Be creative and express your creativity. 3: Practice vulnerability. Your Pre-Flight Checklist:

How would your life look different if you lived it unapologetically? Envision what that life would look like, and then work on growing toward that life.

Eventually the pain of hiding who we are outweighs the pain of stepping into who we are. If you’ve reached this point, it’s time to be brave; release the persona you’ve created and become yourself.

Practice differentiating between anticipated or imagined pain and potential real pain, and make choices based on the latter. Often the reality isn’t nearly as bad as our fear of it.

Mission #38

On Board: Dave Asprey
Mission: Hacking Your Mind Part Two

The Co-Pilot:

If you’re here, it’s probably because you’ve already heard part one of our two-part series with Dave Asprey (and if you haven’t, go listen to it and then come back -- it’s great!). While you probably already know quite a bit about Dave from the previous episode, he’s remarkable enough to deserve a recap. He’s the author of New York Times bestselling book The Bulletproof Diet, and the man behind the other Bulletproof products such as Bulletproof Coffee and Bulletproof Radio. Thanks to his expertise in biohacking, he fully intends to live to be 180 years old -- and he’s dedicated to sharing his knowledge and advice.

In this second part of the two-part series, Dave gives listeners a plethora of valuable (and interesting!) information. We learn about his experience with stem cell injections into the brain, the profound effect that mold can have on health and even personality, and his plans for the forthcoming Bulletproof Labs. Finally, he spends a while talking about neurofeedback, offering a compelling depiction of its potential benefits.

The Mission Log: [03:37] -- Dave talks briefly about the term “hacking” as related to the body and mind. [04:07] -- We learn that Dave is one of only two people in the world who have had prophylactic stem cell injections into the brain. [04:48] -- Dave’s documentary about mold, called MOLDY, actually helped Orion’s sister, as we learn here. Dave then goes on to give some information about the making of the documentary. [06:36] -- Orion gives us some more insight into what she saw in her sister, and Dave responds with advice about when to get rid of your current doctor. [07:47] -- It took about six weeks of Dave’s life to make the documentary, and several hundred thousand dollars, but he says it’s all worth it if helped Orion’s sister, even if it hadn’t impacted anyone else. [10:21] -- Dave’s next book is about mitochondria, and he explains why. [10:54] -- It turns out Dave already has a lot of the equipment that will be at the forthcoming Bulletproof Labs (which will be in Santa Monica), and tests it all on himself. [11:57] -- Orion talks about her own experience with the REDcharger that will be available when the lab opens. She said that it made her feel as relaxed as if she’d spent all day at the beach. [12:32] -- The virtual floating tank is Orion’s favorite of the equipment she tried. Dave explains more about what a floating tank is, and both the problems and the benefits associated with it. He also tells us how the tank he designed is different than a traditional tank (you don’t even need to get wet!). [15:12] -- Some people who have used these tanks have experienced things that could be dreams or flashes of a past life. Consciously getting into a theta state is where all the good things happen, Dave explains. [16:38] -- Dave elaborates on what neurofeedback is. He describes it as holding a mirror up to the brain in a way it can understand. [18:20] -- To illustrate how neurofeedback works, Dave compares the idea of being in a Zen monastery to meditating with rubber bumpers. He then goes on to talk about neurofeedback augmented retrofeeding, which lets you reset certain things in your brain. [20:39] -- Dave tells us what effect this had on other people in his life who has tried it. He says it quiets the negative voice most of us hear. The invisible self-sabotaging parts become visible. [22:14] -- You can replace years of meditation with a few years of neurofeedback. Dave explains its other benefits, including an increase in intelligence. [23:56] -- Dave tells us his three tips for living a stellar life: 1. Practice gratitude every day. 2. Accept that if you have a food craving, it’s your fault. 3. Address your physical issues. Your Pre-Flight Checklist:

Watch Dave’s documentary MOLDY. If it leads you to believe that you may be suffering from mold-related issues, take steps to ensure your home is mold-free.

Research neurotherapy and contact a provider in your area to discuss whether it’s right for you. It tends to be costly, but the results can be priceless.

Every night, find three things you’re grateful for. Write them down in a journal to get in the habit of identifying and expressing gratitude.

Mission #38

On Board: Dave Asprey
Mission: Hacking Your Body, Part One

The Co-Pilot:

This time on Stellar Life, we have a guest so special that we had to split the episode into two parts! Dave Asprey is the man behind the Bulletproof brand, which includes Bulletproof Coffee, Bulletproof Radio, and the New York Times bestselling book The Bulletproof Diet. He’s spent around 30 years and almost $1 million on biohacking his body. But Dave wasn’t always interested in health: he used to weigh a hundred pounds more than he does now, and got his start in the technology industry.

In this first part of the two-part series, we hear a lot about Dave’s background. He explains how (and why) he made the shift from tech into biohacking, and what he hopes to get out of providing all this information. We also have the pleasure of hearing his first-hand experience with some biohacking techniques, and he provides some valuable tips and insights into how to do your own biohacking.

The Mission Log: [05:42] -- Dave introduces himself and explains more about who he is and his experiences and credentials. [06:33] -- We learn more about Dave’s introduction to biohacking, which started around 30 years ago. He also mentions The Better Baby Book, then goes on to give his definition of the term “biohacking.” [09:42] -- Orion asks Dave what we can do with stem cell therapy. He reveals that he plans to live to be at least 180 years old. He goes into quite a bit of detail about the stem cell retrieval process, as well as the culturing process. [11:30] -- Dave explains more about what he wanted to do with stem cells in his own body (and what he’s already done with them). He’s gone so far as to have stem cells injected into his “boy parts,” to use his term. [14:17] -- Dave’s wife had a similar procedure done, which clearly had a very positive effect on her as well. [14:50] -- What are the three top lessons Dave learned from hacking his body? [16:55] -- The Bulletproof Diet, in a nutshell, is a diet designed to create maximum willpower. The side effects are more energy and a complete decimation of food cravings. [17:57] -- Dave explains some details about how certain foods are good for some people, but can have negative effects on other people. For more information, you can read The Bulletproof Diet or start cooking from Bulletproof: The Cookbook. [19:32] -- Dave has a gift for Stellar Life listeners! You can download The Bulletproof Diet Roadmap, which tells you everything in the book in one page. [20:14] -- There’s a difference between brain octane oil and MCT oil, as Dave explains here. [21:19] -- Dave explains why he started the Bulletproof business. He gushes about his gratitude for being able to help people. Your Pre-Flight Checklist:

Do your own research into stem cell therapy to understand what it’s capable of. There have been huge breakthroughs; it’s not just about cloning sheep anymore.

Come up with one specific thing that you want to change about your body. Instead of trying to figure out whether you can do it, figure out how to do it.

Download the Bulletproof Diet Roadmap, print it, and stick it on your refrigerator. Try to become more conscious of choosing foods that it encourages.

E37: Attracting Dream Relationships and a Dream Life: Samantha Pilbeam

Description:

Mission #37

On Board: Samantha Pilbeam
Mission: Attracting Dream Relationships and a Dream Life

The Co-Pilot:

Our co-pilot on this episode is the lovely Samantha Pilbeam, a businesswoman and entrepreneur who manifested her dream life -- and even her ideal partner -- through the Law of Attraction and following a continuing path of self-improvement.

Samantha, who lives in the UK with her partner Greg, was once stuck in a life characterized by low self-esteem and unhealthy relationships. Using various tools and techniques, she crafted a better life for herself and became the happy, fulfilled, successful woman she is today.

Thanks to her own life experiences,she’s passionate about helping others and making the world a better place. That’s what she’s here to do today. In this episode, you’ll learn all about how she manifested her ideal life, and the daily steps you can take to do the same. As Orion puts it, “Your vibration needs to match the life you want.”

Connect With Samantha Pilbeam:
samanthapilbeam@me.com

The Mission Log: [05:11] - Samantha shares a bit about herself, including where she lives and a broad overview of her relationship with her partner. [05:50] - We learn about Samantha’s history of being attracted to men who weren’t right for her, or drawn into dysfunctional relationships. [06:16] - Samantha’s first role models were her parents, who had a dysfunctional relationship. She describes their differences. [07:03] - The type of men who Samantha attracted (and was attracted to) were very similar to her father. [07:44] - Are women going to the wrong places to find love? Samantha indirectly answers that via her own life story. [08:27] - Samantha describes her previous life at the time that she started to realize she needed to make a change, around ten years ago. [09:31] - What was the void, and what was the catalyst for change? [10:24] - The moment that made Samantha realized she really needed a change was when her then-partner punched her in the face. Orion and Samantha discuss how sometimes it takes painful moments to make you realize you need change, and they can be a gift in disguise. [12:14] - At the time, Samantha’s friends and family provided a support group for her. [13:35] - Samantha reflects on her previous relationships, pointing out that what she then thought was “love” wasn’t really love, and that low self-esteem contributed to her decisions. [16:02] - We hear more about Samantha’s life before she learned how to love herself. [17:10] - If you come from a lineage of being treated unkindly, it’s up to you to stand up and change that tradition, Orion explains. [17:39] - Samantha agrees with Orion’s explanation, then applies the same concept to the relation with money. She explores the difference between having a lot of money and experiencing abundance. [18:46] - Samantha opened a beauty business during the middle of the recession, and discovered breathwork and rebirthing around that same time. [19:35] - She describes the experience of doing rebirthing, and how much it can vary from time to time. She also tells us a bit about the self-discoveries that she made this way. [21:10] - Samantha discusses how often she did breathwork, and the three different modules in which she did it. [21:57] - Breathwork isn’t just motivational; it involves a lot of work, dealing with a lot of pain. Samantha noticed that after doing breathwork, she started to love herself more. [23:13] - We hear about how Samantha used breathwork and meditation to help overcome her issues surrounding money. Darius Barazandeh helped her with this. [24:23] - Samantha tells us about the men who started showing up in her life after she started doing breathwork and changing herself. [25:39] - True masculinity doesn’t need to take stereotypically masculine forms. For Samantha, true masculinity is a man who treats a woman like a goddess. [26:34] - The man who Samantha is currently with is exactly what she wrote down when she did her manifesting. We also hear about her previous relationship. [27:42] - Several years earlier, Samantha had taken a Law of Attraction course by Tony Robbins (but in her case, led by Joseph McClendon). She stopped for a while after being freaked out by how quickly she started attracting things into her life. [30:10] - At the time, she explains, she wasn’t ready to receive the life she wanted. Part of her wanted to stay in “suffering mode” because that was the life she was used to. [31:14] - When Samantha next used the Law of Attraction, after having done the breathwork, she was ready to receive. She was also ready for the element of surrender that it required. [32:08] - Orion steps in for a moment to explain what she means by “surrender.” [32:55] - Samantha agrees with Orion’s description, and goes on to explain that her fear was also part of what led to her being in those unhealthy relationships. [33:33] - How did Samantha find Mr. Right? [35:30] - How did she start believing in the Law of Attraction in a way that allowed her to manifest the things she had written on her list? [36:18] - Samantha took about 15 to 20 minutes every morning for her exercise in believing in the Law of Attraction. [37:00] - By the end of the two weeks Samantha took to make herself believe in the Law of Attraction, she let go of the idea because she believed in it so fully that she just knew it would work. She set up a Meetup group several months later, and her partner Greg showed up at the first meeting. [38:10] - Samantha tells us about how she and Greg started dating, and how she realized that he was “the one” for her. [40:22] - What has Samantha done to keep the love alive (and the relationship healthy) after the initial sparks of the relationship wore off? [41:54] - In a successful relationship, both parties take responsibility for their own happiness rather than trying to find it in their partner. [43:48] - Samantha’s three tips for living a stellar life are: appreciate what you have and show gratitude, give yourself love, and give back to people and the world. [44:20] - Samantha offers listeners a gift: her husband Greg is an NLP (neuro linguistic programming) trainer, and they’re offering two listeners a free NLP course early next year (January 4-10 in the Lake District in the UK). Flights and accommodation are not included, but the course is free. To enter, write Samantha a short email about why you think you should be picked and explaining your path and how this will help you (and how you will help the world). Send this to her at samanthapilbeam@me.com. Your Pre-Flight Checklist: Pain can be a catalyst for change. Write down three recent life events that have been painful (or issues that continue to cause you pain), and then, for each one, three ways that you can turn that pain into positive change. Every morning, look in the mirror and take five minutes to practice valuing yourself. Tell yourself “I love you,” and look for the beauty reflected in the mirror -- focusing on both your internal and external beauty. We all want more money, but money doesn’t create a sense of abundance. Take ten minutes each day for a month to start a gratitude journal. Explore the forms of abundance that you do have in your life. Links and Resources:

The Mission Log: [02:30] - We hear about the best thing that happened to Shanda this week. [02:57] - Shanda introduces herself and explains that she helps people create cash flow--and also how to be generous with that cash flow. [04:02] - Humble beginnings and a broken family serve as empowering factors for Shanda, and she gives us some insight into this. We also learn about the value of hard moments in life. [06:22] - Joel Osteen’s new book, Think Better, Live Better, can help you get your head in the right space to transform pain into positive change. [07:22] - Shanda talks about the difference between intellectually knowing that you should do something versus actually taking your own advice and surrendering into the coaching. [08:15] - We learn about the turning point from when Shanda had $500 in an envelope in her closet to when she transformed into the woman she is today. It took the thought of going back to Canada to push her into figuring out a way to change her life (and be able to stay in the U.S.). [10:24] - Sometimes an opportunity is present, but we stop short of finding the solution. Shanda gives an example of how showing up and pushing for what you want eventually gets you there. [11:22] - Shanda answers Orion’s question of whether showing up and going for what you want is the secret ingredient that makes women successful. She tells us we have to “stop stopping” and gives us an example of a woman who is too hard on herself. [12:21] - Shanda tells us what she thinks is the biggest secret to success. [13:10] - How do we know whether to keep going or whether to quit (or at least change directions)? [13:20] - How can we get over “I’m not good enough”? Shanda reiterates her point again: “Complete what you start.” She then elaborates on how this applies to making money and how that, in turn, means you can make a difference in the world. [14:22] - We learn about how important it is to keep your word to yourself by completing what you start. She memorably tells us, “Don’t hit snooze on your life!” [15:10] - Does Shanda have any advice about the fact that many people’s self-worth is intimately linked to their income or financial situation? [17:19] - Orion asks whether Shanda has any fear of rejection, and Shanda muses over the question. She explains how a fear of rejection has manifested itself in her life. [18:09] - She gives advice on how to improve your fear of rejection by giving up the idea of perfection or comparison. [19:02] - Shanda offers a new perspective on fears: they’re a sign that you’re stretching outside your comfort zone, so in a way they’re a good thing. [19:35] - How does Shanda help people break through their fears about money abundance and achieving goals? (Hint: it’s probably not what you would expect!) [21:27] - Shanda gives a compelling example of how endurance running--her answer to the previous question--is a more wide-spread solution among successful people than we may realize. She references the book Living with a SEAL: 31 Days Training with the Toughest Man on the Planet by Jesse Itzler. [23:05] - When Orion asks about the fastest way to grow a business, Shanda’s answer is simple: “Build an email list and learn how to sell to it.” Of course, that leads to the question of the best way to build an email list, and Shanda answers in detail. [24:24] - Shanda explains a bit about her book Core Calling: How to Build a Business That Gives You a Freedom Lifestyle in 2 Years or Less. [25:01] - “Connection is currency,” says Shanda, and this is particularly applicable to email lists. She uses everyday examples from her life to connect with her readers and inspire them to grow. [26:12] - Shanda talks about the value of “flextime,” which means she doesn’t work the last week of every month or the month of December. She applies this to the concept of athletes and recovery. [29:46] - Flextime has made a huge difference for Shanda, and she explains both the good and the bad of the initial foray into flextime. [30:19] - What is Shanda’s success system? [30:51] - Where does Shanda draw boundaries in terms of her generosity? She explains that she doesn’t have boundaries. [32:18] - How does Shanda’s belief in the Law of Attraction work for her? [33:12] - Through the stories of a Porsche and a Facebook team, Shanda explains how you see what you want--and how keeping your eyes on what you want can help you get it. [35:40] - Shanda gives another example of how opening someone up to a possibility can lead to positive results, using a story from Wayne Dyer, then relates that to a health situation in her own life. [37:08] - Shanda says that “being obsessed with the end result” will lead to positive things happening quite quickly, a concept she illustrates with the story of finding her fiancé and starting a family. [38:20] - We hear about the advice and coaching that Shanda got when she was in search of a lasting relationship. By following her coach’s rules, Shanda developed a new understanding of how to approach relationships. [39:40] - Shanda creates the success in her company based on three formulas. There are also formulas that make her relationship work. These formulas, and the way you think, have a profound impact on your life. [40:29] - Having a baby with someone she’d known for only three months is the craziest thing she’s ever done, Shanda tells us--and it clearly worked well for her! [41:13] - Orion asks Shanda her three tips for living a stellar life. The answers include figuring out your finances, taking care of your body, and tithing or giving back. Your Pre-Flight Checklist: There are wise pieces of advice that we intellectually know but don’t actually follow. Identify an instance where you aren’t following your own advice, and then resolve to “surrender into the coaching.” Write down two or three hardships you’ve been through. Then, for each one, write down several ways the hardship has actually led to positive outcomes in your life. Shanda believes one key to success is to “stop stopping.” Think about something that you’ve given up on recently, whether from frustration, boredom, or a sense that it will never change. How can you keep pushing at this issue until it resolves successfully? Links and Resources:

[11:10] - Dr. Breus tells us about the first chronotype, which he symbolizes with a lion.  Lions are after their first kill early in the morning.  They generally get up around 5:30 a.m.  They make up about 15% of the population.  Lions tend to be leaders, very organized, good managers, and type-A personalities.  Lions tend to have a plan, and they like to work their plan.  They also tend to be in bed by 8:30 or 9:00 p.m. [12:05] - The second chronotype is the bear.  Bears make up about 55% of the population.  They tend to be fun and extroverted.  Bears are known to work really hard and also play really hard.  Most of society is built around the schedule of bears because they make up such a large percentage of the population. [12:39] - The third chronotype is the wolf.  Wolves are the night people.  They like to stay up late and get up late.  They tend to be more introverted and very creative.  Many successful entrepreneurs are wolves. [13:35] - The last chronotype is the dolphin.  Dolphins are those who are problem sleepers.  They tend to be highly intelligent with perfectionistic qualities.  They frequently have obsessive-compulsive or neurotic tendencies. [14:05] - We talk about people who have hybrids of the different chronotypes. [16:25] - Dr. Breus talks about if and when you should have caffeine. [20:18] - We hear about the eight-hour myth. [21:01] - Dr. Breus discusses how certain ages in life are very chronotype typical, such as babies and toddlers being lions, children being bears, and teenagers being wolves. [22:26] - He shares that he and his wife are both wolf chronotypes. [23:20] - Dr. Breus get into the science of when to have sex.  He discusses how optimal hormone levels (particularly estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol, and adrenaline) can help to obtain an optimal sexual experience. [25:45] - We hear about Dr. Breus’ process for writing his latest book, The Power of When. [26:30] - Dr. Breus shares his thoughts about naps. [28:00] - We get into solutions for helping “dolphins” sleep better. [30:40] - Dr. Breus talks about the pros and cons of sleep hypnosis. [31:30] - We discuss using melatonin as a sleep supplement.  Dr. Breus reminds us that melatonin is a hormone and not  a mineral or plant, and it must be carefully dosed.  Overdosing can cause things like nightmares and night sweats.  It does not help us fall asleep, but rather helps you stay asleep, and should be taken about an hour and a half before bed, not at bedtime.  Melatonin acts as a contraceptive in high doses and should never be given to children in high doses, particularly young girls. [34:29] - Dr. Breus talks about some of the potential benefits and risks of using sleeping pills. [36:05] - We chat about the the benefits of ashwagandha. [36:35] - Dr. Breus explains why a hot shower before bed is better for sleep than a cool one, why a bubble bath is an even better option, and why going to bed too early is a huge no-no! [38:29] - Dr. Breus tells of ways to minimize the effects of jet lag. [41:31] - Dr. Breus shares a few of his most interesting sleep stories. [44:39] - We talk about teeth clenching. [46:03] - We are reminded how important regular exercise and good nutrition are to keeping stress down and sleeping well. [46:38] - Dr. Breus explains why B vitamins should not be taken at night. [47:10] - To live a stellar life, Dr. Breus recommends (1) know your chronotype; (2) do something for your mind, body, and soul every day; and (3) get sunlight every morning! Links and Resources:

Description:

Mission #33

On Board: Rich German
Mission: Designing Your Life to Have the Freedom You Desire

The Co-Pilot:

Rich German is a bestselling author, speaker, and business/lifestyle coach.  He has conducted over 18,000 individual coaching sessions and co-founded the JV Insider Circle.  With its focus on joint ventures, the JV Insider Circle is a powerful community that helps speakers, authors, and coaches grow their businesses.  Each year they host a live event called JVX, a three-day experience, which helps cultivate relationships geared towards building lasting joint ventures.  Rich is also passionate about caring for the ocean.  He created Project O, with a mission to restore, protect, and sustain the ocean.  The sale of his new book, Blue Laguna, will help fund Project O’s mission.

Rich is an all-around great guy; he is successful, smart, and funny.  More than that though, he practices what he preaches.  When Rich talks about designing a life to have the type of freedom where you make a lot of money and still have time for yourself, for your spirit, for taking care of your body, for connecting with nature, for living your passion, he says it because he knows it is possible.  He lives it!

[43:07] – Rich describes his new book, Blue Laguna.
[44:30] – We hear Rich’s answer to Orion’s question, “Would you say you play like a dolphin, sing like a whale, and deal like a shark?”
[47:41] – Rich gets into the details of his offer to give a free ticket to JVX to the listeners of Stellar Life.
[48:06] – Rich gives us his parting wisdom about being happy and healing from our past wounds. Your Pre-Flight Checklist: To be a success in a joint venture, we need passion and a good idea. What are the things in your life you are most passionate about?  What draws people to you?  Come up with ideas that fit your passion.

Look carefully at your past traumas and wounds.  Find ways to help yourself heal those hurts.  Ask for help or advice, if you need it.
