How To Progress With The Weaknesses & Limitations You Truly Have

When I’m interviewed on other people’s shows about drive, often the first topic they’ll bring up is my claim that everyone has drive. Further, that everyone has just as much drive in them as anyone else. When I explain it, everyone agrees and accepts this new revelation. However, in this space of self-improvement, I bristle at the concept of “no fear” and “no limits” and “no excuses.” This is the perception I embraced as a kid and took into my life. It was great as a pro cyclist where you push yourself past your limits. But overall in life, to disregard the truth of our weaknesses and limitations is foolish. I know. I have been a fool so many times. In my recent show with Harvard and MIT professor Jeff Karp, his story starts with tremendous difficulties as a kid in school. They wanted to hold him back in 2nd grade. His grades were terrible. He was labeled a troublemaker. He was embarrassed by teachers in front of his class. What I appreciate is he didn’t just justify all his issues. He accepted them and said, “Yes, I really have trouble with my attention and how my brain does and doesn’t work.” And he didn’t justify it with his ultimate success as an Ivy League professor. He just took it all scientifically and spiritually and said, “Hey, here are some tools I figured out that can help you, like they helped me.” We do have personal weaknesses. We do have limits. We do have things we will always struggle with, and they do matter. Drive with me a moment and let’s talk about how we can progress and succeed anyway. With growth, grit, and grace.  Head to airdoctorpro.com and use promo code KEVIN and depending on the model receive UP TO 39% off or UP TO $300 off!

Two Small Shifts To Make Getting Off The Coach & Doing Something So Much Easier

Think about all the “shoulds” in your life. All the things that come to mind that you should do, and that feeling of, “ugh”. And the feeling of, “I know I should, but…” and there is a list of things to do you don’t even have conceptualized. It just feels like a lot. And it can keep us stuck there. Idling in park and not driving…anywhere. Driven, but stuck. This happened to me the other day and I tried something that worked. Then low and behold the very next day the concept was scientifically defined for me by Harvard and MIT professor Jeff Karp as we talked about the message in his new book, LIT: Life Ignition Tools: Use Nature's Playbook to Energize Your Brain, Spark Ideas, and Ignite Action. The concept is called “lowering activation.” Drive with me a moment and I’ll unpack it so you can use it too.

5 Keys To Hack The Mind Game Of Your Life

Take every self-help resource. Every therapy session. Every spiritual resource. From them all we are striving to program, or reprogram, our brains. In order to get us driving further and faster with less effort. Less anxiety. Less complexity. Less limits. Saying life is a mind game can be incredibly depressing, or empowering. My goal in this short message is to empower you. And me. I need this reminder every day. We all live in our own, personal matrix. We really do. Understanding, embracing, and accepting this can be life altering. My inspiration is Harvard and MIT professor Jeff Karp who I just had on the show. His new book, LIT: Life Ignition Tools: Use Nature's Playbook to Energize Your Brain, Spark Ideas, and Ignite Action, is a great showcase in how life is a mind game and how we can intentionally get ourselves LIT for success.

Bioinsperationalist Jeff Karp | How To Harness Nature Through Science To Free Your Mind & Take Action

Most of us think we are driving through our lives with automatic shifting, like almost all cars nowadays. But in truth, our life is a stick shift and we must manually shift gears. And most of us habitually live in first to third gear. We go about living in our minds with a lot of limitations, blind spots, and ignorance. So I bring you, Jeff Karp. Jeff started life with some big struggles. Amidst some undiagnosed issues, he did so poorly in school they wanted to hold him back in second grade. Teachers literally put blinders on him and embarrassed him in front of class for not paying attention. He was labeled a troublemaker. But at age eight a teacher asked him about how he was thinking, and it opened up such a new world for Jeff that he cites it as his first spiritual experience. He went on to adjust how he learned and today is a member of the National Academy of Inventors. He is a Professor at Harvard Medical School and MIT and a Distinguished Chair at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Dr. Karp has dedicated his research laboratory to bioinspired medical problem solving, which he explains at the top of the show as studying phenomena in nature and replicating them through science. His lab’s technologies include a nasal spray to neutralize pathogens, a tissue glue that can seal holes inside a beating heart, targeted therapy for osteoarthritis and inflammatory bowel disease, needles that automatically stop when they reach their target, and more. His new book however is focused on you and your brain and the vast, untapped potential he says you can ignite with some tools. And you can upshift in your life. Drive further and faster with less effort. The book is called LIT, which stands for Life Ignition Tools: Use Nature’s Playbook to Energize Your Brain, Spark Ideas, and Ignite Action. Some would call it brain hacks but it’s not. It’s just brain ability we generally are unaware of. So join me in a conversation to learn more about how you can utilize some tools to get your brain…LIT. You can learn more at Dr. Karp's website here: www.jeffkarp.com.

A Guide To The Most Beneficial Meats

Our bodies drive everything we do, so in an effort to get them in the best shape possible, in this episode we are talking about meat. Eating meat or not is one issue, but if you choose to, are they all equal? Absolutely not. Again, we’re talking about food, the items we ingest every day that are intended to build, repair, heal, and help us flourish. So if the next meal has meat, does it contain the natural ingredients it was intended to? Ingredients that give us life? Or is it made up of synthetic hormones, antibiotics, waste products, and an overall soup of refuse and pharmaceuticals? It matters, hugely. The type of meat to a degree, but moreso, the lifestyle of the animal it came from. Medical doctor and Function Medicine expert Randy James and I walk through meat to help you understand what will best support your drive.  Head to airdoctorpro.com and use promo code KEVIN and depending on the model receive UP TO 39% off or UP TO $300 off!

2 Ways To Practice Being Present & How It Is Actually Of Value To You

I met with a group of guys this morning to talk about being present. It's actually a group of Colorado guys from Denver and Colorado Springs who adventure together. We mountain bike, run, hike, raft, paddle board, camp, ski and basically revel in the outdoors. But we also journey to go deep. The guy who founded the group talks about Outer Terrain and Inner Terrain. The concept of "being present" is in vogue today, but I find two problems present - One, it doesn't sell well, being present doesn't sound valuable and fun at face value, and two, most people think it just means not daydreaming or being on your phone and paying attention to the environment around you. So what is valuable about being present and is it more than just paying attention to your surroundings? Drive with me a moment...

Why It Is So Hard To Be Well & How To Reframe Your Mind To Live Healthier

We are generally driven to do the right thing in our lives. We practice personal hygiene, we get the kids off to school, we work and pay the bills, we pay our taxes and we attend social functions and are generally nice and serving to people. But why is it so hard to do the right things for our health and wellness? I just had a long conversation with Dr Tom O’Bryan in the previous episode where he basically showcased that today’s chronic illness and disease is primarily of our own doing. Primarily, not all. I’d rather hear this news than hear it’s all being done to me. If my ill health is mostly my own doing, then I have control over getting healthier, which is great! But the question I pose today is, why is it so hard? Why does our drive seem so hard when it comes to being well? Let me get the cards on the table for you to try and make it more understandable and easier to grasp, and therefore, change.

Dr. Tom O’Bryan | 7 Lifestyle Adjustments To Reduce Your Chance Of Disease By 95%

7 Lifestyle Adjustments To Reduce Your Chance Of Disease By 95%. That seems an almost preposterous claim. I’ve studied health and wellness for three decades and been heavily involved in Functional Medicine for 15 years. And the message in this show speaks truth. My guest is Dr. Tom O’Bryan, a world-renowned Functional Medicine educator I’ve known of for years and finally connected with. He is the author of You Can Fix Your Brain and The Autoimmune Fix and known for his research on gluten. He now has a profound, 7-part docuseries for you, called the Inflammation Equation, where he unveils the underlying mechanisms in the development of 14 of the top 15 causes of death in our world today. You’ll learn from Tom and the world’s top medical experts about the simple steps you can take to stop dis-ease from becoming disease. This conversation is a candid overview of just what inflammation is. Think of an injury you incur and you have swelling. That's the body doing what it's supposed to do. Yet today with the massive and growing amount of toxins in our environment and on the end of our fork, our body is always in a mild to acute state of inflammation and it will go on till it grows, encounters a weak spot in your system, and finally manifests as a disease. Our culture is fighting valiantly to find cures for diseases while the world's best informed realize we are all feeding the disease. And you can't cure a problem that we are actively feeding. Listen in to this show to find real answers and hope for your best chances to ward off the disease culture that is being accepted as the norm. It doesn't need to be your norm. Go to inflammationequation.com for the docuseries. And next up, Tom O'Bryan and a deep dive into inflammation and how to mitigate it in your body.

The Most Nutrient Dense & Beneficial Veggies You Can Eat

Your body is the vehicle for all your drive, so we seek to strengthen it for you in this episode. We live in a culture where many people don’t eat many vegetables, and if they do, they gravitate towards the least beneficial. Food is your best medicine, so here is your guide to getting the most out of your veggies. And the goal? Make veggies half or more of every meal. Not the side. Meat and grains and other are your side. But to vegetables, not all are created equal. In a recent episode, Dr James quipped about his kids going for the most sugar-full veggies like carrots and snap peas and it sparked a listener to ask which veggies were in fact, “better”. We intended to discuss the “better” foods in five categories but found just getting through veggies was a complete episode. To give you some Cliff’s Notes, his “top tier” picks for the most nutrient dense veggies were broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, spinach, cabbage (especially purple) and kale. Tier two? Peas, corn, carrots and okra. Why? You’ll serve yourself well to understand, so in this episode Dr Randy James and I break it down. Quick call out to my new friend, Kathy. She’s been a listener for years, loves these health focused shows I do with Dr James, and this week surprised me by showing up at his practice, True Life Medicine, here in Colorado. She flew in to become a patient.. I came out to see someone in the foyer and she recognized my voice, not realizing my studio is in his office building. We had a great visit. You can check out what Randy can offer you at truelifemedicine.com. Got any questions? Hit me up, [email protected]. OK, next up, Randy and I give you the lowdown on the best veggies.

How To Belong To Yourself When You Are A Tool

In my previous episode with Ritu Bhasin, author of We Got This, we dove deep into the concept of belonging and she wisely stated we must first begin by belonging to ourselves. Few of us were ever taught anything about our relationship with ourselves and to many, like me, the very concept is obtuse and awkward. It's taken me a long time to recognize that some people are just...good with themselves. They are comfortable in their own skin. And I want that. I want peace. I'm tired of the anxiety of never measuring up to myself. And you can’t measure up when you think of yourself as merely a tool to get things done. Which many of you do as well.

Ritu Bhasin On How To Find True Belonging Vs Merely Fitting In

One of the key drives of our lives is to belong. To truly belong where we are known and accepted and respected, if not loved. We often mistake fitting in for belonging. We perform to fit in at school, at work, at church, or with family. And that’s the rub, we’re performing. We’re not being ourselves. And we don’t find true belonging. My expert on belonging is Ritu Bhasin, who is a global expert on diversity, equity, and inclusion and has worked with hundreds of world-renowned organizations to help guide people to becoming their authentic selves, which as you’re about to hear is step on in belonging. Ritu has been a professional speaker for almost 15 years and has presented to 100,000s+ people globally. Her book is called We’ve Got This: Unlocking The Beauty Of Belonging. We discuss the first step in belonging is belonging to yourself. And this is the hardest step. We talked long on what being authentic really entails, when almost all of us were taught to perform. We discuss the difference between being untrue to yourself and adapting to others out of respect and love. And we cover issues of personal credibility and how those who are marginalized in any way have more barriers to cross on the path to belonging, and how they can advocate for themselves. Connect with Ritu at ritubhasin.com. Next up, we talk about how to achieve one of your greatest drives of all, the drive to authentically, belong.

An Exhaustive Review Of The Best Sleep Habits

You are driven by your values and today we discuss the value of feeling good, and we look at sleep. Think about this, everyday we must eat. But we can eat junk food and feel like crap, or we can eat wonderful, healthy food and feel great. It’s the same with sleep. Everyday we sleep, and we can do some things and get horrid, non-rejuvenating sleep, or we can do other things and get great, recharging and refreshing sleep. I’ve learned I can’t always judge my sleep on how I think I slept. Sometimes I’m out like a light, wake in the morning feeling ok, only to crash later in the day. And other times where I feel I tossed and turned some, I wasn’t ready to wake up when I did, but I had good energy for the day. This show is about the tangible habits we can employ to give ourselves a better chance of getting quality sleep. I’m talking with medical doctor, functional medicine expert and my close friend, Randy James. As we unpacked good sleep habits we were a bit surprised to realize just how many integers there are regarding our sleep. From the food we eat prior to sleep, to our mattress, to light and sound and even the topic of our last waking thought. What we thought would be a quick run through of our list turned into a much longer discussion and resulted in even us realizing just how many things can influence our sleep quality Head to airdoctorpro.com and use promo code KEVIN and depending on the model receive UP TO 39% off or UP TO $300 off!

Attachment Style Expert Thais Gibson | How To Recognize & Rewire How You Relate To People

I state we are all driven by our desires or our fears. Positively or negatively. In relationships, the same holds true and it’s explained and defined by our attachment styles. As a child you experienced attachment to others a certain way and this was your programming going forth for all relationships. Friends, this is immensely significant. You can quickly find out your attachment style and open a whole new world of understanding and opportunity for your life, from relationships to how you work to how you perceive your spirituality. I sat down for a long talk with Thais Gibson. Thais has become the authority on attachment theory and styles. She has a Ph.D. with nearly a decade of experience running a successful private practice and engaging with over 30,000 clients through individual sessions, workshops, and an educational platform. She created the Gibson Integrated Attachment Theory™, which unites traditional attachment theory, developmental psychology insights, and potent subconscious reprogramming techniques that are woven throughout the course material within The Personal Development School. Thais founded the Personal Development School when her private practice got fully booked with a 2-year waitlist. It quickly expanded to thousands of members and counting in 115 countries. The school has over 38 million views on social media. I encourage you to go to personaldevelopmentschool.com now and take the free Attachment Style quiz.

Stop & Notice How Your Life Philosophy Is Driving You - For Better Or Worse

We all live with a life philosophy. We have guiding principles, beliefs, and expectations that influence everything we think and do. But most people are unaware of the philosophy they are living under and don’t realize they are being mindlessly guided to destinations, not of their conscious choice. You are most people. I am too, on any given day that we don’t stop and take captive what is going on, and decide and choose what we want to be going on.

Why You Don’t Want To Wait For Something To Happen & How To Trigger Your Drive Now

It’s become a perspective in our culture that you are waiting for something to happen, so you can respond and become extraordinary. Our movies often show someone just existing through life, then all the sudden the world is going to end by a giant meteor or a plague and they rally to save themselves and others. Or they fall into a vat of chemicals or get bit by an insect and develop superpowers and a villain emerges. Zero to hero. We love the stories, but they permeate our culture and we start thinking that’s what life is. It isn’t. Most incredibly successful people had no big event that spurred them on. They simply looked around and noticed something they didn’t want, or they got an idea of something they did want, and they just started walking toward it. Drive is not found. It’s already in you and it’s just looking for a reason to get out. Head to airdoctorpro.com and use promo code KEVIN and depending on the model receive UP TO 39% off or UP TO $300 off!

You Have As Much Drive As Anyone, Only The Fuel & Destination Is In Question

This is the biggest myth I’m on a mission to dispel, that some people are driven and others are not. It’s a lie. And I want you to tell yourself and everything this good news. When you are on the couch binge watching shows and binge eating chips, it’s not because you have a lack of drive. When your kid wants to do nothing but play video games while your friend’s kid is a star athlete and valedictorian, it’s not because your kid lost the genetic lottery and has no drive. We all have all the drive we need. As much as anyone else. It’s only what is fueling our drive, and what destination we truly want, that’s in question.

What Drives Celebrity Realtor Ryan Serhant | 3 Ways To Stand Out From the Crowd & Build Your Following

Ryan Serhant is one of the most successful and well-known real estate brokers in the world. Ryan is known as a star of Bravo’s Emmy-nominated Million Dollar Listing New York, its spin-off show Sell It Like Serhant, and for his appearance in the film While We’re Young alongside Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, and Adam Driver. He founded his own real estate company, SERHANT., that has grown to more than 300 agents and over 100 full-time employees across New York City, Long Island, the Hamptons, and Florida and has amassed over 6 million followers across all social platforms. If you remember the old TV show, Lifestyles of The Rich & Famous, Ryan is the guy that’s gotten famous selling those houses, and living that lifestyle. He’s the guy everyone would point to and say is Mr Driven. Like he got a supernatural dose of drive and everyone else pales in comparison. And that is why I sat down to talk with him. I wanted to uncover what made him tick, and how he’s a mere mortal like the rest of us. So you’ll hear what drove him as a kid, where he went wrong, and why today he wants to become the most well known name in real estate in the world, simply because he wants the challenge and is bored otherwise. The other half of this conversation is about branding. Ryan got to where he is by becoming an expert in branding. He has a new book titled, Brand It Like Serhant: Stand Out From the Crowd, Build Your Following, and Earn More Money. I dug deep into his 3 keys of branding, which are 1) Discover Your Core Identity, 2) Consistency Is Key, with a focus on social media, and 3) Shout It from the Mountaintop, or rather, how to. It’s incredible information that Ryan has proven. He even went so far as to look at my social media and website and give candid, constructive criticism. This is not only a master class in drive, but a master class in branding you won’t want to miss. You’ll also hear at the end of the show, Ryan looking at his watch and being dumbfounded at how long we’d talked, claiming it was the longest conversation he’s ever had with someone and his wife is going to be jealous. I took that as a great compliment. Enjoy. Head to airdoctorpro.com and use promo code KEVIN and depending on the model receive UP TO 39% off or UP TO $300 off!

Kristen’s book is Permission To Screw Up: How I Learned to Lead by Doing (Almost) Everything Wrong.  We discuss her newfound desire to pursue her spirituality, how she works to maintain relationships while traveling, I turn her own question on her of "What's something I would never know about you if we didn't have this conversation," and she turns it back on me as well. We cover her practices of walking, journaling and why she gets consistent therapy. And Kristen speaks to her journey away from everything having to be bigger and bigger and stepping back to pursue the quality of life, relationships and fun that she values. At the end I encourage her to pursue her idea of maybe gardening, and doing it poorly.  And a gift for you, Kristen has a renowned program called the Human Leadership Program.

How To Manifest When You Don't Believe In Manifesting

Today the buzzword in self-improvement is manifesting. People seem fairly polarized on the topic, either fully embracing it as magical or fully rejecting it as evil. I’ll admit I’ve struggled with the concept of manifesting for a long time. I believe in a God and I don’t think I’m it. I don’t think you are either. But I feel where there’s smoke there is often fire, and my parents taught me not to throw the baby out with the bathwater. So I’ve been studying this concept of manifesting and found a way I can embrace it, and think many of you will resonate as well.

Authentic Leadership w/ Kristen Hadeed | How To Lead & Connect As Your Authentic Self

The fact you are listening to this podcast tells me you are driven to influence others, and influence is leadership. So whether you want to positively influence your kids or friends or coworkers, or you want to lead a company or organization, you need some leadership skills. However, the term of leadership covers a lot of ground and has a lot of baggage that may not be relevant for you. Which is why I’m doing this series on Authentic Leadership and I’ve brought in Kristen Hadeed. Kristen Hadeed has a great story of unintentional leadership that now has her on stage around the world teaching other leaders what she calls, human leadership. Which I’d say is leading while being a good and serving human. Kristen was in college and started cleaning people’s homes to generate some income. She got more requests and ended up hiring people to help and from it and ultimately created a company that cleaned student apartments and dorms, staffed only by students. But she made so, so many mistakes that helped her learn how to really lead people by connecting to and caring about them. Kristen’s book is titled Permission To Screw Up: How I Learned to Lead by Doing (Almost) Everything Wrong. It’s a wonderful book, which is why Simon Sinek wrote the forward. In this show Kristen and I discuss what authentic leadership is and can be. And we get into talking about not only the value of trying and failing, but the necessity if you are doing anything worthwhile. Kristen is a bright light and we resonated so much we intend to do more work together. And a gift for you, Kristen has a renowned program called the Human Leadership Program.

Charles Duhigg: How To Drive From Mere Communication To Actual Connection

Here in America we are massively overfed, and often undernourished. Likewise we are in an age of dramatic overcommunication, and under-connection. And here lies the opportunity. This is the superpower. To evolve past mere communication and get to connection. This is where the magic happens. If you can connect, you can influence. And you’re about to learn that you in fact, don’t know how to really connect. Or at least, you can do it better and more consistently. My expert for the series is Charles Duhigg. I got to know Charles intimately on a beach in Florida, nearly a decade ago. He wasn’t there, as I was on a getaway with my wife and I was devouring his book, The Power of Habit. I have it right here, marked up and tattered. Still my favorite resource on habits. So when I got contacted by his agency about having him on the show, and that his focus this time was communication, I said schedule it. Immediately. And…he delivered. You’re about to hear how to do what few people do well, and you can make the change…immediately. And benefit…immediately. CHARLES DUHIGG is a Pulitzer prize-winning journalist and the author of The Power of Habit, which spent over three years on bestseller lists and has been translated into 40 languages, and Smarter Faster Better, also a bestseller. His newest book, Supercommunicators: How To Unlock The Secret Language of Connection, is available February, 2024. Charles writes for The New Yorker magazine and is a graduate of Yale University and the Harvard Business School. He has been a frequent contributor to CNBC, This American Life, NPR, PBS’s NewsHour and Frontline. The bio says you were also, for one terrifying day in 1999, a bike messenger in San Francisco.

He’s a co-founder of Harvard’s Program on Negotiation and has devoted his life to helping people, organizations, and nations transform conflicts around the world, having served as a negotiator in many of the toughest disputes of our times and consulted with the White House, the State Department, and the Pentagon. He has served as a negotiation adviser and mediator in conflicts ranging from Kentucky wildcat coal mine strikes to family feuds, from US partisan battles to wars in the Middle East, Colombia, Korea, and Ukraine. My focus in this series is primarily on the greatest battle front, which is the worlds we live in, in our homes and our work. My muse is William’s brand new book, POSSIBLE: How We Survive (and Thrive) in an Age of Conflict.

What Drives Your Health | How To Keep Choice Pollution From Giving You Anxiety

This is a What Drives Your Health episode and we look at how choice pollution is feeding into your anxiety. This is not what we want fueling our drive. When you are faced with too many choices, you are inclined to do…nothing. Or if you’re like me you just make a rash decision just so you can move on. Taking time to figure out the best decision can cause stress and from this we are generally suffering from decision fatigue. Now think about the reality of life today that always has an infinite amount of choices for anything at any given moment. It produces a culture of anxiety. We’re calling it “choice pollution” and in this episode Dr Randy James of True Life Medicine and I talk about the problem, the solution and the anti anxiety drugs being prescribed for it.

It’s the day by day pursuit of growth to understand and better manage and be your true self. Our expert for this series is Hitendra Wadhwa, professor at Columbia Business School and author of, INNER MASTERY, OUTER IMPACT: How Your Five Core Energies Hold the Key to Success.

#3 Inner Mastery w/ Hitendra Wadhwa | How To Transcend & Respond vs Justify & React

This episode is part 3 in my series on Inner Mastery. We think what drives us is the desire for something...out there. It's having a goal and wanting the goal so much that we're motivated enough to do what it takes to achieve it. This is how we parent. I've done it too. Provide an incentive. "Here is what you'll get...what you can have...if you'll get up and do the work." It can work, but it's a short term solution. Once the prize is achieved you go back to square one. What we want is to be people who are always motivated toward positive results. Again, you are always driven. But your drive is fueled by fear or desire. You can be driving backwards, you can be driven off on time wasting detours. You can be driven to massive wrecks. We all want to be driven to wake up daily and make positive progress toward fulfilling destinations, and regardless of the destination, be enjoying the ride. This comes from inner mastery. Note, don't hear "mastery" as a noun. A destination. Think of it as a verb. More like...inner mastering. Always growing. My expert in part one and two was Hitendra Wadhwa, a professor at Columbia Business School where his class on Personal Leadership & Success is one of the most popular classes. Hitendra’s new book is titled, INNER MASTERY, OUTER IMPACT: How Your Five Core Energies Hold the Key to Success. Here I have my brother and frequent co-host, Jared Angaza on to discuss these five keys, as in my long talk with Hitendra we never got past the first key, purpose. Next are wisdom, growth, love, and self-realization. My interest is digging into how we have cultural meanings programmed into us and misperceive all five core energies, and how we can get them flowing to better inform and direct our drive You can watch this full episodes on YouTube - just search for “What Drives You with Kevin Miller” What Drives You is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping Life and Leadership coaches.

Inner Mastery w/ Hitendra Wadhwa | How To Transform Into Your True Self

In this episode we look at a key myth about drive. That it comes from focusing on an external motivation. You are driven to make more money, secure a certain relationship, attain a position, have an experience, etc…It’s always “out there.” And yet all those things are simply items we focus on to get our inner self, driven. My book is about unlocking the drive inside you, and though I do in fact use external motives as tools, the work happens…inside. So here I kick off a series on Inner Mastery. My expert is Hitendra Wadhwa. Hitendra is a professor at Columbia Business School and Founder of the Mentora Institute. His class on Personal Leadership & Success is one of the most popular at Columbia Business School. Hitendra’s mission is to discover, codify and teach the laws of success in life and leadership. His research integrates the latest science of human nature, ancient wisdom, studies of great leaders, and the personal journeys of everyday heroes. Hitendra’s new book is titled, INNER MASTERY, OUTER IMPACT: How Your Five Core Energies Hold the Key to Success, and is endorsed by Arthur Brooks who we just had on the show for the second time, as well as Angela Duckworth, author of Grit, and 8 time Olympian Apolo Ohno.

What Drives Your Health | IBS, SIBO & How To Poop More Frequently & Effectively

This is our What Drives Your Health episode, because the physical body of you is the vehicle for everything you drive towards! If it’s compromised, so are all your efforts.  Here we’re looking at IBS, SIBO & How To Poop More Frequently & Effectively. I’d say that is not a sexy topic, but being bloated, gassy and constipated is definitely not sexy and we want to help. IBS, irritable bowel syndrome, affects nearly everyone to some degree, even those living a very clean, healthy and active lifestyle. Diarrhea, constipation, gas, bloating, abdominal aches and pains and general discomfort down there should not be “normal” and there is hope to address it. I’ve had my own bouts with these issues, so I really feel your pain. When you do a search in Google and type in, “How often should you…” the number one search is “wash your hair”, number two is “poop”. You are not alone. In this episode Dr Randy James, Medical Doctor and Functional Medicine expert, and I talk candidly about IBS, SIBO, poop and more. Quick note…hearing all the incredible messages on the What Drives You podcast is powerful. To help it really take root in your life, I invite you to join us in the Drive Tribe online community and join the daily discussions where we go deeper, together, on all the show topics. This community has been a long time coming, and the time is now. We give a primary focus to what is driving us, and what is driving others…to us. We want to influence others with how we feel we can help them. We want to help you drive your influence so you are impacting other people for good.

#4 Interdependence w/ Kevin Miller | The Big Idea, The Big Takeaway & The Big Action

We are wrapping up our series on Interdependence and how it supports our overall drive far more than our independence. There is a place for both, but our focus on being independent is limiting us. This is my Big Idea, Big Takeaway & Big Action episode where I pull out the key highlights from our series. My expert for the series is Interdependence Expert & International Trauma Facilitator, Thomas Hübl, whose new book is titled, Attuned: Practicing Interdependence to Heal Our Trauma—and Our World. In part three I broadened the discussion with a friend and collaborator of Thomas’, William Ury who is one of the world’s best-known experts on negotiation and co-founder of Harvard’s Program on Negotiation. William’s new book is called POSSIBLE: How We Survive (and Thrive) in an Age of Conflict, and we have a series with him coming up shortly.

#3 Interdependence w/ William Ury | How To Connect With Someone’s Trauma Even If They Are Accusing You

We are continuing our series with part three on Interdependence and this is a candid conversation getting to the heart of understanding each other’s traumas in order to resolve conflict. We began with Interdependence Expert & International Trauma Facilitator, Thomas Hübl, whose new book is titled, Attuned: Practicing Interdependence to Heal Our Trauma—and Our World. Here I continue the discussion with a friend and often collaborator with Thomas, William Ury. I often bring on past guests for this part three segment, but William is actually a future guest. We spent three hours together recently and I discovered he and Thomas were more than well acquainted and had done much together. William Ury is one of the world’s best-known experts on negotiation, and the co-author of Getting to Yes, the world’s all-time bestselling book on the topic with more than 15 million copies sold. He’s a co-founder of Harvard’s Program on Negotiation and has devoted his life to helping people, organizations, and nations transform conflicts around the world, having served as a negotiator in many of the toughest disputes of our times and consulted with the White House, the State Department, and the Pentagon. His upcoming book you can preorder now is titled, POSSIBLE: How We Survive (and Thrive) in an Age of Conflict, and we’ll be digging into it here on the show in the coming weeks. But these two men, Thomas Hübl and William Ury are called on by countries and organizations around the globe to bring peace to relationships, whether nation to nation, or person to person.

What Drives Your Health | You Don’t Have A High Blood Pressure Medication Deficiency - It Is Caused By Something

High blood pressure medications have become one of the most common prescriptions in our culture. Current stats put about 50% of Americans on high blood pressure, with people needing it at younger ages all the time. Like many ailments we accept this as a norm and taking blood pressure meds is like having your morning coffee or tea, just a norm. But at the core, there is a reason our blood pressure is high! High blood pressure is a symptom of the body not doing what it’s supposed to do. Or in truth, the body is trying, but it can’t overcome…something we are doing to it or not doing for it. There are little side effects to the medication itself, but what else is going on? Being overweight is the primary correlation but then you have seemingly fit people like actor Will Smith who was on them too. How does that happen?

#4 Misbelief w/ Kevin Miller | The Big Idea, The Big Takeaway & The Big Action

I wrap up our series on Misbelief with The Big Idea, The Big Takeaway & The Big Action where I distill it all down to what most stood out to me. What I see are the foundational fundamentals of the issue so we can better understand, embrace, and take action on how to better serve ourselves and humanity with our beliefs. Or as you’ll soon hear, our letting go of beliefs, as we tend to understand them in our culture. Our catalyst again has been Duke University professor of psychology and behavioral economics Dan Arielly and the message from his book, MISBELIEF: WHAT MAKES RATIONAL PEOPLE BELIEVE IRRATIONAL THINGS.  Most of you are aware that my father had a surprise cancer diagnosis recently. Six weeks later he took his last breath here on earth. This has shaken me, in a beneficial way, on various fronts. I find myself questioning my quote, beliefs, regarding spirituality, money, health & wellness, and relationships. You will hear more from me on this in coming episodes. But it goes to further showcase to me how we limit ourselves and cause harm to ourselves and others when we wrap ourselves up in the concepts of beliefs You can watch this full episodes on YouTube - just search for “What Drives You with Kevin Miller” What Drives You is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping Life and Leadership coaches.

#3 Misbelief Discussed w/ Jared Angaza | Reject Your Beliefs & Strengthen Your Faith

We continue our discussion on misbelief and strive to get to the heart of how our beliefs primarily exist to serve and protect us. However they are seldom if ever, fact. I want you to hear that. Few if any of your beliefs are fact. They are not right and other’s are wrong. And a dramatic amount of your current problems and stresses and relational issues are due to your unhealthy relationship with your so called beliefs. Duke University professor of psychology and behavioral economics Dan Arielly claims they are mostly in truth, “misbeliefs.” His book, MISBELIEF: WHAT MAKES RATIONAL PEOPLE BELIEVE IRRATIONAL THINGS, is our muse for this series. My co host this discussion is my brother, Jared Angaza. Who every once in a while I’ll remind you that while our last names are different and we look nothing alike, we have the same parents. Supposedly. But through a lifetime of pursuing wisdom, we’ve seen the early beliefs of our upbringing…change. Evolve. Get rejected. So we’re going to try and get to some root issues of what our beliefs are actually useful for, and when they are not. And ultimately I hope we can showcase the great freedom there is in trading in the word belief, for the term of…faith.

#1 Misbelief w/ Dan Ariely | How To Keep Our Beliefs From Imprisoning Us

You’ve heard me talk often as of late about what I’ve grown to believe are the dangers of our individual and cultural beliefs. We all want to know what is and what is not and be able to count on it. That’s human nature. But the more I’ve learned in my lifetime, the more of my past beliefs I no longer believe. I just assume then, that many of my current beliefs, I may also change as I continue to learn more. So then what value are beliefs? And how much trust do we put in our beliefs? This is a controversial topic, as we want to believe, our beliefs, are truth and fact. But…they are not. If you can’t accept that, either run from this episode, or take a deep breath and open yourself to…freedom. Our guide for this series is Dan Arielly. Dan is an Israeli-American professor and author. He serves as a James B. Duke Professor of psychology and behavioral economics at Duke University. Ariely is the co-founder of several companies implementing insights from behavioral science. His latest book, and our muse for this conversation, is MISBELIEF: WHAT MAKES RATIONAL PEOPLE BELIEVE IRRATIONAL THINGS.

What Drives Your Health | How To Have Your Healthspan Match Your Lifespan

The culture talks about “life span”, which is how long we live from the day we are born until the day our heart stops beating. Health span however, is how long you are well and able. Do you care more about living to be 100, in a nursing home, in a wheelchair, hooked up to oxygen, wearing diapers, and completely devoid of any conscious thought, or being active and able in body, mind, and spirit, well into your sixties, seventies, or eighties? Dr Randy James and I recorded this segment following our weekly, Friday guys gathering where we share our lives together. One of the guys had just spent time with his family and witnessing his elderly mother who could not get around much and was not able to join the family in much of any activity other than eating. While we want to be sensitive, he was just aware she has peers who are fully capable in body and mind and he’s aware of her lifestyle choices that have not helped the disability she finds herself in. Randy and I have a candid and I hope compassionate discussion on this and it brings to light what our goals are, and how our daily actions are supporting these goals.

#4 Happierness w/ Kevin Miller | The Big Idea, The Big Takeaway & The Big Action

We wrap up our series on Happierness featuring Atlantic columnist and Harvard Professor Arthur Brooks, and Oprah Winfrey, who just co authored the book, “Build The Life You Want: The Art and Science of Getting Happier.” In the last episode I also talked with my brother, Jared Angaza, and we discussed further aspects of this grand, cultural pursuit of happiness and what is at the root of it. This is my Big Idea, The Big Takeaway & The Big Action episode to distill it all down, and I found six primary issues around happiness that stood out from our conversations.

#3 Happierness w/ Jared Angaza | How To Understand Your Natural Set Point For Happiness

We continue our series on Happierness which we kicked off with Atlantic columnist and Harvard Professor, Arthur Brooks. Arthur’s new book with Oprah Winfrey is called Build The Life You Want: The Art and Science of Getting Happier. This issue of happiness is significant to me for two reasons: 1) happiness is such a hot topic because we as a culture are not finding ourselves…happy, and 2) I feel we are mostly dealing with the symptoms regarding happiness and not the root issues. To dig further into what I feel are root issues, I have with me…Jared Angaza. Jared is a strategist, activist, and storyteller behind many influential brands and campaigns. And he’s my brother and business partner and someone who I ponder the topics of drive and motive and meaning with…a lot You can watch this full episodes on YouTube - just search for “What Drives You with Kevin Miller” What Drives You is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping Life and Leadership coaches.

#2 What Drives Happiness Expert, Atlantic Columnist & Harvard Professor Arthur Brooks

We continue our series on Happierness with happiness researcher and evangelist Arthur Brooks. This is part two where we go behind the scenes to find out What Drives Arthur in his personal life as he strives to practice what he preaches. I appreciate that Arthur is up front with the fact that he’s not naturally prone to be in a so-called, happy state. He must proactively work at it. Me too. Arthur again is a Harvard Professor, a columnist at The Atlantic, a very in demand speaker, and author of 12 books. I had him on the show in 2023 for his book, From Strength to Strength: Finding Success, Happiness, and Deep Purpose in the Second Half of Life. The message in that book continues to influence me. This time he’s back with his new book co authored with Oprah Winfrey, titled, Build The Life You Want: The Art and Science of Getting Happier. Arthur is a very intentional person and deeply considers all areas of his life. When I asked him about his values regarding his career he spoke to his efforts to stay aware of the why of what he does as opposed to just the what. In his pursuit of health I found it interesting that he cited he’s not necessarily happy to be exercising, but it helps him be less unhappy overall. This episode is quite an interesting journey through the lifestyle of one of our cultures leading experts on happiness.

#1 Happierness w/ Arthur Brooks & Oprah Winfrey | How To Be Happier Because Of Challenges - Not By Avoiding Them

In this episode we begin a series on happierness. As you're about to hear, we can't live a meaningful life and just be in a state of happy all the time. We'd actually miss out on some of the most rich aspects of our existence. And probably die early. But amongst the necessary challenges of life, we can absolutely be happier, which improves...literally everything.  My expert guest on the topic, who is back with us for the second time, is Arthur Brooks. His book Strength To Strength has been pivotal for me, and so many others, and was the focus of our first series together.  Arthur is a professor of management practice at Harvard Business School where he teaches renowned courses on happiness. His incredibly popular, How to Build a Life column at the Atlantic was found and followed by Oprah Winfrey and now Arthur and Oprah have written a book together titled, Build The Life You Want: The Art and Science of Getting Happier. I encourage you to look at Arthur's new online workshop, The Art and Science of Happiness at scienceofhappier.com The more happiness you experience, the more your drive is fueled.

#2 What Drives Us In Death | What My Mom Wants To Impart To The World As Her Husband Is Leaving It

In the previous episode I shared “What My Dad’s Pending Death Can Teach Us About Living.” (visit his tribute page https://murial.life/dan-miller) Today I highlight a message my mom feels burdened with during this acute time of life. Death gets us serious about what is really important, and this is a message she wants to communicate to everyone, and it’s a message I feel is worthy of communicating. More than worthy. I believe it’s the key, literally, to how you can most tangibly change the world and impact it for the better. My mom is Joanne Miller. She prides herself most on being Mom to myself, my brother Jared, and sister Ashley. And then grandmother to her 16 grandkids and 4, soon to be 5, great grandkids. She is well known as wife and partner to my Dad, Dan Miller, of 48 Days To The Work & Life You Love fame. She is also mother figure and friend to countless people. Those roles are top of the list. Further down, yet quite impressive, she is author of two books, Be Your Finest Art and Creating A Haven Of Peace. She has co-produced a lot of material with my Dad at 48days.com, like the Living, Loving & Working audio that any entrepreneurial couple should hear. And she is an accomplished artists who has participated in many galleries and has a lot of paid-for paintings hanging on people’s walls. Including mine, though she didn’t make me pay. She is a tremendous human who I cherish deeply.

#1 What Drives Us In Death | What My Dad’s Pending Death Can Teach Us About Living

I’m going to tell a story about the mortal death of my Dad. it’s a story that is happening right now. I’m sitting out by the pool at his Florida home right now as I write this episode out. He’s asleep about 30 feet away in my parent’s bedroom, in a hospice bed, on morphine. (visit his tribute page at murial.life/dan-miller) But before the story, is the reason for the story. And the reason is…you. And me. We don’t have a terminal illness diagnosis. I assume. If you do, please let me know, I’d love to talk. Email me now at [email protected]. But assuming you don’t, let’s talk about it. Being given a life ending diagnosis with a timeline is life changing. I’m experiencing it for the first time. What is profound to me however is, we all have a life ending diagnosis. We will all…die. We just live with the assumption it will be a long time in the future. So we live with an expectation of more time. My question is, what if we are missing the point? What if the best thing to happen to us would be a life ending diagnosis so we could see, and live, clearly?

What Drives Your Health | How To Think Yourself Healthy

This is a What Drives Your Health episode. Your health comes from what you do and don’t eat, and what exercise you do and don’t do. And good sleep. Basically your lifestyle. Add to that your genetics and we have it pretty much covered, right? But what about your thinking? Not your mental state, but your actual thinking? Can you think yourself healthy? Or unhealthy? I’m with my great friend, Randy James, Medical Doctor and Functional Medicine expert and he and I have been studying this concept for a long time. A book we read cites a study where people worked out their biceps, with dumbbells. But half of the test subjects were tasked with just thinking about growing their bicep. The first group using dumbbells, grew their biceps. They measured bigger. The second group who just thought about it, also, got bigger biceps. Not as much as the actual dumbbell lifters, but take the measuring tape, and sure enough...they got bigger biceps just from thinking about it. Now take that to your health. As you’ll hear in this show, I talk about an injury I have. The only mental input I give it is...negative. I think about the pain and the lack. According to this study I could be helping heal it with my thoughts, but currently I’m making it worse. Let’s talk about how to use some thinking exercises to increase our health.

What Drives Millennial Whisperer & Connection Expert Chris Tuff

I bring you a special What Drives You episode with renowned author of “The Millennial Whisperer”, Chris Tuff. Chris was one of the first advertisers to work directly with Mark Zuckerberg in 2006 and filmed one of the first ever, “viral” videos, which landed him on the front page of The Wall Street Journal. Tuff’s natural ability to connect with his nearly 80% millennial and Gen Z workforce led him to publish the national bestselling The Millennial Whisperer in 2019. A global movement soon followed, as the Atlanta resident shared lessons on empathy and genuine connection at work on some of the largest stages in the world including such Fortune 100 companies as Nike. I of course wanted to dig into Chris’s personal drives, and you’ll be interested to hear that his initial drive was simply to…beat his older brothers. In anything and everything. While that may not sound dramatic, the thread you’ll keep hearing in these shows is how often seemingly innocuous events in our youth direct the trajectory of our lives and we don’t even realize it. Chris went on to find himself just 7 years ago, burned out. A wife, two kids, great success in work, and totally spent. He took a month-long sabbatical and reinvented his life. In this episode you’ll hear how his story unfolded, and through it I believe you’ll find aspects that reveal similar issues in your life, that you can reinvent.

What Drives Cognitive Scientist & Renowned Podcast Host Maya Shankar

In this episode, I bring you a special What Drives You episode with Maya Shankar. Maya is a cognitive scientist and the creator, host, and executive producer of the podcast, A Slight Change of Plans, made in collaboration with Malcolm Gladwell's production company, Pushkin Industries. A Slight Change of Plans was named the Apple Podcast of the Year in 2021. Maya actually founded the Behavioral Science Team at the White House, called “the Nudge Unit, which used insights from behavioral economics to write better public policy. Maya’s focus is around what happens to and in us, when change happens. Change we’ve pursued, and change that has fallen upon us. As you’re about to hear, there are often great and terrible consequences. Like the girl who lost 100 lbs and realized she was no longer who she was, and who she liked, and she was disappointed at people’s new behavior to her just because she lost weight. And the health nut who got cancer and from it realized if he’d understood what dealing with cancer did for his mindset, he wouldn’t have feared it so much. Join me as I have a very candid discussion with Maya on the ins and outs of what happens to us when change...happens.

What Drives Your Health: How To Support Your Thyroid

This is a What Drives Your Health episode and we’re talking about your thyroid. Your thyroid regulates much of your body, such as metabolism, growth and development. We as a culture are having more and more thyroid dysregulation. In this episode we dig into what problems thyroid dysregulation causes within us so you can hopefully ascertain if you are being negatively affected. We cover how traditional medicine treats it, and then of course how my co host, Dr Randy James, would treat it from a Functional Medicine perspective, even down to nutritional supplements and recommended dosages. Here in America many people suffer from hypo and hyper - thyroidism, though hypo is most common and the result is feeling the brakes are on in your physical health and you are pushing forward and feeling like you’re in quicksand.

What Drives Your New Year | What Will Fuel You Much More Than GOAL SETTING

In this episode, What Drives Your New Year. You can get a fresh start any time. Any day. But I do appreciate the magic of January 1. Party because I enjoy the indulgences and challenges of the holiday season. I usually come to the New Year with lots of joy and memories, and a bit strung out from all the busyness, socializing, and celebrating, and I'm ready for a reboot. The most popular concepts people turn to are New Years Resolutions and Goals. Which are fine terminologies, though for some people, goals especially are not motivating. I'm going to give you some concepts that may resonate with you more, and regardless I want to share how to fuel your drive toward new things and avoid what most commonly derails people.

What Drives City on a Hill Actor Matthew Del Negro

Matthew Del Negro is a celebrated actor credited for roles in some of TV's most-renowned and award-winning shows such as SOPRANOS, SCANDAL, Goliath & WEST WING, and films HOT PURSUIT and WIND RIVER. He appears in all three seasons of Showtime's City on a Hill opposite Kevin Bacon as Detective Caysen. In this episode with me he referenced talking with Kevin Bacon on set the day before, and I was admittedly honored he chose to spend time with me, a little bit lesser known Kevin. I had him on the show of course to talk about what drives him. Matt said being a professional actor is a career of being told no for a living, and three years ago he decided to give voice to this journey of overcoming rejection by starting a podcast called 10,000 NOs. From the success of that podcast he was offered a book deal and his book is also titled, 10,000 NOs. That’s why he’s here. I was intrigued by his personal story of starting out as the peacekeeper in his family, being shattered by a breakup with his girlfriend and finally finding himself and taking up acting later in life. What were his motives? What drove him, good and bad? As you’ll hear, we really resonated as we got to the heart of...motives and drive. You can find Matt's book 10,000 NOs on Amazon and find him on any podcast player at 10,000 NOs and you can see him in City on a Hill, on Showtime.

What Drives Silicon Valley Legend Guy Kawasaki

I bring you Silicon Valley legend and all around wise guy, Guy Kawasaki. I’ve read Guys books, had him on my shows twice before, hung out with him face to face in San Diego and I think our relationship was solidified after he butt dialed my cell phone one afternoon and we talked a while about him starting a podcast, which he did...called Guy Kawasaki’s Remarkable People which has now become a top ranked podcast. Guy was the original Chief Evangelist of Apple and has many stories about him with Steve Jobs and the early foundations of Apple. Today he’s an evangelist for Canva and Mercedes but much more than that just a big influence and all around fun guy. I brought back to talk about his early and current drives, both personally and professionally. Honestly, this is just a fun romp through Guy admitting he never had huge visions, but he did have clear motives and he went forth and accomplished them. As you'll hear some of his early motives included simply avoiding robbery and getting a nice car. This will be a good showcase that you don’t need giant killing, uber altruistic goals to get you driven and achieving great things. You just need clear goals you have faith in. You can connect with Guy Kawasaki...everywhere, he’s a social media giant. His website is guykawasaki.com and I really encourage you to check out his podcast, Guy Kawasaki’s Remarkable People.

What Drives Your Health | How To Control The Increasing Speed Of Life

Everything in our lives is speeding up. Technology and artificial intelligence and deliveries and...boom. We can fill every second with something new and interesting and the marketplace is focused on delivering us instantaneous gratification in any way possible. Compared to our grandparents and especially great-grandparents, the speed and convenience of life and survival is supersonic. We can do in one hour, maybe even 20 minutes, what it took them all day to achieve. So how is it working for us? Are we awash in free time and leisure? Are we happier and healthier and more at peace than ever? Exuding so much joy as a result of all the privilege we have? You know the answer. We as a culture are sicker, sadder, and more anxious than ever. But the speed and convenience is not bad, only our management of it. I can have a burger for a dollar in a minute at a drive-through, or have one that costs $10 and an hour over my grill. Which will serve me better? Dr Randy James and I talk through this issue, not with certainty, but with grappling.

#4 Perfectionism w/Kevin Miller | The Big Idea, The Big Takeaway & The Big Action

I wrap up our series on perfectionism and how it is hurting our drive. This is the Big Idea, The Big Takeaway & The Big Action episode to distill it all down. Being a perfectionist is not something to be proud of, and it in fact points toward our inability to be authentic and a propensity to people please and perform. It points to our insecurity, not strength. My catalyst and expert for the series was Thomas Curran, a professor in the Department of Psychological and Behavioral Science at the London School of Economics. Thomas studies the personality characteristic of perfectionism, how it develops, and how it impacts our mental health. His TED talk on our dangerous obsession with perfectionism has received more than three million views. In part three I brought on my brother, Jared Angaza, to discuss our journeys as seeking perfectionists who thought we were being valiant but ultimately realize we were attempting to fill our self-identity voids. Come with me as I boil down the highlights of what I’ve found out, and am striving to learn.

#3 Perfectionism w/ Jared Angaza | How To Free Yourself From The Prison Of Comparison

We continue our talk on perfectionism and how we’re letting it diminish our success and joy.

Check out his TED talk on our dangerous obsession with perfectionism that’s gotten more than three million views. Thomas’s new book is The Perfection Trap: Embracing the Power of Good Enough. Here I’m joined by my brother, Jared Angaza, and for my part will say we’ve both spent much of our lives with an unhealthy pursuit of perfectionism.

Special: What Drives Christmas | Ideas On How To Actually Enjoy The Holiday Season & Fuel Your New Year

I ask, What Drives Christmas, and give Ideas On How To Actually Enjoy The Holiday Season & Fuel Your New Year. Sometimes we have an extraordinary experience from a spontaneous event. But for the most part the epic and fulfilling moments in our lives come from intentionality. While there is often much planning around the time from Thanksgiving to Christmas and the holiday season overall, there is seldom intentionality and it feels like every year finds more and more people performing a tradition of obligation more than celebrating a time of actual joy. The season is rife with expectations and “shoulds” and it can often leave you wondering if anyone actually enjoyed it. I surely won’t be so arrogant as to offer a die hard solution. But I’ll offer some ideas and insights that have worked for me and others. And sometimes it helps to simply get honest about what is driving you, even if you don’t decide to change a thing. I’m going to follow along my seven key areas of life, with an addition, and what tends to drive us during the holidays, and help reveal what drives you, so you can course correct the circumstances and/or your mind. You can make this a quick and simple exercise to write down or simply consider what is driving you, or what you want to be driving you…and why.

#4 Physical Transformation w/ Kevin Miller | The Big Ideas, Big Takeaways & Big Actions

In this episode I wrap up our series on Physical Transformation with my Big ideas, Big Takeaways and Big Actions. I began our series with a conversation with celebrity trainer Don Saladino who regularly trains the likes of Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, and Hugh Jackman. Instead of mere tips and tricks and hacks he gave the hardcore lesson on mindset and how it’s more about how we think than merely how we train. I just watched the new Christmas movie starring Ryan Reynolds, Spirited, with my kids and had fun showing off pics of Ryan with Don, and me…with Don. And I’m actually starting Don’s program, The Long Game, to help me get back in shape after 10 weeks out due to injury. You can get 20% off any of Don’s ePrograms at donsaladino.com and use code Drive. In part 3 I continued the conversation on Physical Transformation with my pal, medical doctor and Functional Medicine guru Randy James, and he shared from his perspective on sitting with patients every day, who are looking for physical transformation, though instead of getting shredded to play Deadpool like Ryan, they are mostly trying to alleviate chronic pains and illness and gain back their physical capacity. From these conversations and my own life experience with physical transformations, I’ve pulled out some primary highlights for achievable and sustainable physical transformation.  You can watch this full episodes on YouTube - just search for “What Drives You with Kevin Miller” What Drives You is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping Life and Leadership coaches.

#3 Physical Transformation w/ Dr Randy James | How To Align How You Look With Your Personal Expectations

We continue our series on Physical Transformation. I kicked us off with celebrity coach Don Saladino who is well known as trainer of the biggest names in Hollywood such as Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Emily Blunt, Jake Gyllenhaal, Hugh Jackman and more. I appreciate he gets paid big bucks for results. Period. So he can’t sugarcoat or minimize what it takes to transform a body. Which is…hard, and it takes far more than just giving direction on how to lift weights, run, and eat. So I asked my friend, medical doctor and functional medicine expert, Randy James, to join me in this discussion. He, like Don, is paid out of pocket for transformation. While Don often has people coming to him to change their physical appearance, Randy generally has people coming to him to change how they feel physically. But I think the psychology is the same. It means different goals, different habits, and ultimately different beliefs about yourself.

#1 Physical Transformation w/ Ryan Reynold’s Trainer Don Saladino | How To Transform Your Body By Transforming Your Thinking

We’re talking about physical transformation, and my intent is to sift through the dramatic amount of information and gimmicks and one-size-fits-all information and take it all to task to help us each get some clarity on what it takes to get our physical selves to the place we desire. Most of us come to a time of desiring to transform our bodies. We want to lose weight, gain muscle, trim and firm, or just feel better. But knowing what will really help us is like finding a needle in a haystack. So, I’ve brought on an expert who gets paid for results. Period. Don Saladino is a coach, keynote Speaker, and health entrepreneur that has coached actors, athletes, & musicians for over 20 years. I recently had renowned doctor and strength evangelist Gabrielle Lyon on the show and after our conversation she said I had to have Don on the show because one, he’s such a quality human, and two, he’s a true fitness guru. Don has worked with thousands of people to help them transform, but as you’ll see on social media, he’s developed a massive reputation for training some of the biggest names in Hollywood for the big screen, such as Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Emily Blunt, Sebastian Stan, Anne Hathaway, Jake Gyllenhaal, Hugh Jackman and more. What I appreciate about that is he’s being paid big dollars to make sure not one move and not one minute is wasted, so there is no fluff or just going through the motions. Every effort has to produce results. He also works with…all of us. He has online programs to accommodate everyone at donsaladino.com and DRIVE for 20% off all e-programs You can watch this full episodes on YouTube - just search for “What Drives You with Kevin Miller” What Drives You is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping Life and Leadership coaches.

What Drives Your Health | Top Catalysts For Big Health Improvements

This is our What Drives Your Health show where we give specific focus to our health and wellness. The vehicle that drives all we do. In this episode I wanted to hear from people who have made significant health improvements and what their catalyst was. I asked listeners to share their health accomplishments. I asked to hear from people who were out of shape and possibly ill...and got fit and healthy, and what was the catalyst for them. What triggered them to finally make change and commit to it? My cohost is Randy James, medical doctor and Functional Medicine expert, and my dear friend. Dr James and I talked through comments that included, chronic back pain and back injury, weight gain due to health problems and medication, committing to health due to responsibility to family, and not wanting to be a future burden to family, spinal surgery recovery, and family history of heart attacks. The discussion was rich on what caused these folks to take big action on their health and we didn’t get to half the responses and will continue in the next What Drives Your Health episode. This should give many of you some significant inspiration and equipping to make any big changes you may be looking for in your own health and wellness journey.

#4 Avoiding Burnout w/Kevin Miller | The Big Idea, The Big Takeaway & The Big Action

I'm wrapping up our series on avoiding burnout, which happens when we are driving and out of alignment. My catalyst for the series was Dr Neha Sangwan who was juggling 18 critically ill patients per day and barely surviving 36-hour shifts fueled by sugar and caffeine in her early 30s. She did it…till she couldn’t. And she realized something had to give. She used her scientific background to climb back out and her new book is Powered by Me: From Burned out to Fully Charged at Work and in Life. I then brought on Heather Monahan. We did a series just a couple months ago on Confidence Heather is a two times best-selling author, first with her book Confidence Creator, and now with her latest book, Overcome Your Villains: Mastering Your Beliefs, Actions, and Knowledge to Conquer Any Adversity. Heather is the host of the Creating Confidence podcast and she knows burnout from many years in the high levels of corporate America.

My expert is Dr Neha Sangwan who comes from her own story as a doctor juggling 18 critically ill patients per day and barely surviving 36-hour shifts fueled by sugar and caffeine in her early 30s.

Peak Wellness | How To Late Night Snack

This is our Peak Wellness show where we give specific focus to our health and wellness. The vehicle that drives all we do. In this episode, we’re talking about snacking at night. Specifically with ice cream. I have on the show, Sean Folkson, the founder of Nightfood, a better, healthier, and more sleep friendly ice cream. I’m not advocating eating ice cream late at night, but as you’ll hear in the show, the concept is, if you’re going to anyway, at least make it a better option. Randy and I often talk about all of us being creatures of our appetites, and we won’t squelch that. Trying to leads to failure. But let’s upgrade our appetites. That’s why I have Sean on the show and he simply felt like if he was going to indulge anyway, could he make it less harmful? More than ice cream we simply discuss the realities of our own humanity and our efforts to make better decisions, even if it’s a less offensive ice cream than Ben & Jerry’s or Haagen Daz. I generally try not to eat after dinner, but if I do, I strive for the healthiest thing I can to appease my appetite. I think you’ll find some comfort in this show...about comfort food. We’re seeking health, we’re not seeking to deprive ourselves of every pleasure! Find Sean and his tasty treats at nightfood.com Go to Zocdoc.com/KEVIN and download the Zocdoc app for FREE.

#4 Human Design w/ Kevin Miller | The Big Idea, The Big Takeaway & The Big Action

I wrap up our series on Human Design with my Big Idea, Big Takeaway & Big Action. Human design is another take on personality profiles. Think of Myers Briggs, DISC, or the Enneagram. The purpose of these is to understand your natural propensities and predispositions, so you can better understand and leverage yourself and others. I’ll speak more to the benefit in a moment. The difference with Human Design is all the others are self reporting, while Human Design is based on your birth date, time and location. That’s it. Yes, this is the concept of astrology and according to my good, Christian upbringing is blasphemy. I’m doing a series on it because one, I found the results for me to be incredibly revealing and useful, and two, I don’t see any problem in the concept being designed by God. Drive with me a moment and let me unpack my experience and thoughts, so you may consider utilizing this tool for your own benefit.  You can watch this full episodes on YouTube - just search for “What Drives You with Kevin Miller” What Drives You is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping Life and Leadership coaches.

#1 Human Design w/ Erin Claire Jones | Discover How You Are Wired To Thrive

We kick off a series on Human Design. I first experienced it like a personality profile, which I’ve grown up taking, from Myers Briggs, to the Disc profile, to most recently the Enneagram. I greatly appreciate them all in regards to getting insight into my personality predispositions and propensities. But I’ve always struggled with the aspect that they are self-reporting. We choose the answers and I struggle to answer naturally. The Human Design concept however, simply goes off your birthdate, birth time, and city of birth. I read a review that said it’s like astrology on steroids. I was raised in the bible belt. I grew up in church. Astrology was blasphemy. But here is the deal. I had a Human Design Blueprint done, and the profile I got back addressed issues about me that nothing else has every uncovered. So regardless of my skepticism, I just can’t deny it. So with me today is Erin Claire Jones. Erin is an expert in Human Design and one of the most well known leaders in the space. She looks at how human design reveals our energetic blueprint and specifically, how it looks at how people are designed to cultivate relationships, parent, make decisions, build businesses, market, communicate, work within teams and so much more. Erin’s intent is to give people permission and tools to be themselves as individuals, in family, in business and in relationships. I had a meeting with Erin weeks ago just to connect with her and admit this was a new world for me, and I just immediately was attracted to her spirit and relatability and grace for my pondering.

Peak Wellness | How To Run

This is our Peak Wellness show where we give specific focus to our health and wellness. The vehicle that drives all we do. In this episode…we address how to run. Specifically, how to run without injury and keep running into old age. We’re advocating running simply because it’s one of the easiest exercises that can be done nearly anywhere and anytime with little to no equipment required. So many people who would run however, do not. Even those who used to at an elite level. The reason? Aches and pains. We’ve gotten to where it’s the norm to stop running earlier in life and try to find an exercise with less impact. I had that as my own story. I did a 2 hour run on Father’s Day about xis years ago. It was glorious. Except for the pain in my hip and back. Then my co host Dr Randy James and I got a hold of some new information. Today we both run pain free. It’s not a guarantee for you, but it sure is a great hope and opportunity for all those who would like to continue, or start running.

#4 Mindset w/ Kevin Miller | The Big Idea, The Big Takeaway & The Big Action

In this episode… I wrap up our series on mindset, specifically looking at what a growth mindset really is and the understanding that most of us are in fact not walking out a growth mindset, but are stuck in performance. This is our The Big Idea, The Big Takeaway & The Big Action episode to distill it all down. I kicked off by talking with Stanford-trained mindset expert Eduardo Briceño, the author of The Performance Paradox: Turning The Power of Mindset Into Action. It’s Eduardo’s research on how we miss the growth mindset that was my catalyst. He is also co-founder of Mindset Works with renowned Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck. I then brought on Tom Ziglar, son of famed growth mindset expert Zig Ziglar, and CEO of Ziglar. Ziglar as a company is one of the most premier growth oriented companies in existence. From these talks I’m made greatly aware of how I too get stuck in performance and am not actually growing. So in reviewing all the notes for the actions I want to take toward growth, I came up with the key points, and I want to share them with you.

We kick off a series on mindset, and specifically, a growth mindset. We’ll define it, but I think most of you are aware of a growth mindset vs a fixed mindset. And we all probably think we understand and have a growth mindset. And yet what you’re about to hear is how we often sabotage our intent to be growth minded and lose the benefit. You’re going to have your eyes opened, and be able to make immediate shifts that will give you the benefits you desire. My expert on the topic is Stanford-trained mindset expert Eduardo Briceño.

Peak Wellness | How To Upgrade Your Personal OS

This is our Peak Wellness show where we give specific focus to our health and wellness. The vehicle that drives all we do. In this episode, How To Upgrade Your Personal OS. When your phone or computer is always on, always running multiple programs, it gets bogged down. We often power it down and reboot. As humans we get this. We go through a day and by the end, we need relief and rest. We kick off the shoes, get some food, maybe watch a show, then sleep. But now think about upgrading the operating system on your phone. That’s different. You shut down every program, power the phone completely down, then allow the operating system to be updated and upgraded. It may take a while and require some input along the way to set things up correctly. When we keep running the same programs of our life without ever taking a break to allow new information to come in and take root, we miss the possibility of a real upgrade. In this episode Dr Randy James and I talk about the primary roles in our lives and the concept of backing off from them for a time. A day. A week. Taking in new information and taking time to consider our true desires. Our authentic drive. Then coming back to the world with an upgrade. Think about this in terms of your job. The work you do. Being a spouse. A parent. Being a homeowner and parent who is continually keeping up with everything. How can you take a step back, so you can resume with an upgraded you?  You can watch this full episodes on YouTube - just search for “Self Helpful with Kevin Miller” The Self Helpful podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping Life and Leadership coaches.

#4 Heal Thy Self w/ Kevin Miller | The Big Idea, The Big Takeaway & The Big Action

I wrap the series on Heal Thy Self. I began with Dr. Bradley Nelson, veteran holistic physician and one of the world’s foremost experts on natural methods of achieving wellness. He’s author of the best-selling book "The Emotion Code" which provides step-by-step instructions for working with the body's energy and healing power. His new book is, “The Body Code: Unlocking Your Body's Ability to Heal Itself,” and it is was our muse for this series. The concept of tapping into your subconscious to guide you in how to heal yourself, is initially a stretch for me. But there is just so much of it that makes sense and I have too many people I respect who attest to finding healing through these methods, so I wanted to being the concepts to us all. I invited my close friend Randy James to discuss this topic with me in part three. Randy is a medical doctor and functional medicine expert, and he too felt that while some of the concept is hard to embrace, there is just so much that lines up about the power of our own psyche and the lack of addressing emotional damage in any other way. Here I strive to address some highlights and bring in some issues we didn’t even address in the previous three episodes.

#3 Heal Thy Self w/ Dr Randy James | How To Discern & Create Your Mindstyle

We continue this series on Heal Thy Self that we kicked off with veteran holistic physician Dr. Bradley Nelson. His best-selling book "The Emotion Code" provides step-by-step instructions for working with the body's energy healing power. His new book is, “The Body Code: Unlocking Your Body's Ability to Heal Itself,” and it is our muse for this discussion. The methods he talks about have some basis in science but require…some faith and mind expanding. I found enough people testifying to Dr Nelson and his concepts that I wanted to discuss it more, and when I find people who are influencing lots of people, and people I respect, I want to know more. This is an exploration of possibility. It doesn’t mean I understand and follow it all. To help, I have here with me today Randy James, Medical Doctor and Functional Medicine expert, and my dear friend. We’re going to talk about the concept, respectfully, candidly and with as little bias as possible.  You can watch this full episodes on YouTube - just search for “Self Helpful with Kevin Miller” The Self Helpful podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping Life and Leadership coaches.

Special: What Drives Jordan Harbinger | From Lawyer To Podcasting Royalty

We continue a special, short series on What Drives You with some interesting people. People who got clear on what they wanted, and why, which is what creates authentic drive, knowing what you want and why. This is the focus of my book, What Drives You. Here I bring you Jordan Harbinger. Jordan is podcasting royalty. He wasn’t a celebrity. He didn’t have a NY Time bestselling book. He didn’t grow a multimillion dollar business. He had a lonely childhood and ended up going to law school because his parents wanted him to. He got a job on Wall Street and realized progress and success was won by people skills. But instead of using that to become a Wall Street tycoon he started burning CDs of his learning and then progressed to early podcasting. Today The Jordan Harbinger Show is one of the top podcasts on planet earth. He is an incredibly insightful interviewer and doles out great guidance you can use to get ahead in life. In this conversation I of course quiz him on what motivated him all along the way, up until now. You’ll hear some top rate business counsel on keeping it simple, why he’s bailed on social media, and doing what gets the most impact. You’ll do yourself well to subscribe to The Jordan Harbinger Show wherever you get your podcasts.

Special: What Drives Kara Goldin | From Her Kitchen Table To A Flavored Water Empire

We continue a special, short series on What Drives You with some interesting people. People who got clear on what they wanted, and why, which is what creates authentic drive, knowing what you want and why. This is the focus of my book, What Drives You. Here I bring you Kara Goldin. Kara is well known as the founder and CEO of Hint, Inc. Hint is the unsweetened, flavored water that’s become one of the most successful beverage businesses of our time. Kara’s book is called Undaunted: Overcoming Doubts and Doubters, and she’s host of the podcast, The Kara Goldin Show. I of course want to know what drives her. Kara was the youngest of five children and at age eight realized both her parents had dreams they didn’t pursue. In this story you’ll hear her career trajectory and willingness to believe in herself and have faith in overcoming the obstacles that will present themselves with any endeavor of worth. If you’ve ever seen or had Hint water, maybe from Starbucks or Whole Foods or today possibly from any grocery chain, Kara started it out of her home kitchen. I think you’ll enjoy this story of…drive.

Special: What Drives Shawn Askinosie | From Criminal Defense Lawyer To Chocolatier

I’m kicking off a series of What Drives You episodes with some incredibly interesting people. People who got clear on what they wanted, and why. That’s what creates authentic drive, knowing what you want and why. Here I bring you Shawn Askinosie, founder of Askinosie Chocolate. If you are a Seth Godin follower you have likely heard of Shawn and Askinosie Chocolate, as Seth is a big fan of Shawn, the company, and the chocolate! As you’re about to hear, Shawn's dad died at 14 and tore his world apart, setting him on a maniacal pace to accomplish big achievements and prove to God he didn't need him. He ultimately pursued law school and withstood 11 law school rejections, yer went on to have an exemplary, 20 year career. But he never overcame his dad's sickness and death. This led him to volunteering for palliative care at a hospital and starting a five year journey to a completely different vocation. A significant statement from him in this episode is this, “It’s a funny paradox, but the first step in sorting myself out was actually not to think about myself, and instead to focus on other people.” Shawn has a book called, Meaningful Work - A Quest To Do Great Business, Find Your Calling, and Feed Your Soul. I highly recommend it and you can find it wherever you buy books, and at his website, shawnaskinosie.

Peak Wellness | How To Breathe For Better Overall Performance

This is our Peak Wellness show where we give specific focus to our health and wellness. The foundation for all we do. In this episode…we talk about breathing. How to breathe. Isn’t that odd. I, like you, figured I knew how. For over 52 years I’ve been breathing air in and continuing to live. I was a pro cyclist and seemed to breathe pretty proficiently. What more do I need to know? Turns out there is a lot to know if we want to be fully functioning. In this show, my great friend and Peak Wellness CoHost, Randy James, Medical Doctor and Functional Medicine expert and owner of truelifemedicine.com and I discuss the message of the book, Breath, by James Nestor. Here is a big hook of the message that may intrigue you as it did me, our nose is not simply for smelling. It is for breathing through. Our mouth is for food. When we use our mouth for breathing instead of our nose, especially at night, there are negative consequences. James Nestor is a journalist who just went to study breathing. When he and another guy spent weeks only breathing through their mouth alone, you’ll be amazed at the negative results. I’ve talked to so many people who have had radical improvements in their lives by working on more breathing through their nose. You’ll learn much in this show and even the simple awareness of correct breathing will benefit you tremendously.  You can watch this full episodes on YouTube - just search for “Self Helpful with Kevin Miller” The Self Helpful podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping Life and Leadership coaches.

#4 Strong Body Strong Mind w/ Kevin Miller | The Big Idea, The Big Takeaway & The Big Action

I wrap up our series on Strong Body Strong Mind and I’m going to give you a paradigm shifting analogy that I believe will forever change how you view your brain’s ability in regards to the overall health of your body. I kicked off the series with Dr. Gabrielle Lyon whose focus is Muscle Centric Medicine. Her new book is called Forever Strong: A New, Science-Based Strategy for Aging Well. The focus was on how muscle, built by protein and resistance training, is key for our brain health and long term cognitive ability. This concept is a cultural shift. Then I brought on Randy James, my close friend, medical doctor and Functional Medicine expert, to talk about his experience with patients and his own growing understanding of the importance of skeletal muscle as it relates to overall health. Here now, I give you some highlights from the conversations, and again, an analogy I believe will greatly alter how you view and care for the future health of your brain.  You can watch this full episodes on YouTube - just search for “Self Helpful with Kevin Miller” The Self Helpful podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping Life and Leadership coaches.

#3 Strong Body Strong Mind w/ Dr Randy James | What Type Of Exercise Will Best Support Your Cognitive Capacity For The Long Term

We continue our series on Strong Body Strong Mind and How To Remain Fully Capable As You Age. My catalyst for this series is Dr Gabrielle Lyon whose expertise is Muscle-Centric Medicine, and that is our muse, how in our search for long term health often misses the vital role of skeletal muscle. Gabrielle’s new book is Forever Strong: A New, Science-Based Strategy for Aging Well and her podcast is The Dr Gabrielle Lyon Show. Here, I’m with my great friend, Randy James, Medical Doctor and Functional Medicine expert. He works directly, hand in hand with patients every day who are seeking to live long and live well. You can find him at truelifemedicine.com. He listened to my conversation with Gabrielle and I’ve brought him on to get his take on these topics of muscle, protein, and aging well. We actually bring back the question he always gets asked, “Dr James, what exercise is best?” And his answer has always been, “Whatever one you’ll do!” Which is true if you’re coming from a sedentary place. But based on Dr Lyon’s research we’re now saying, you’ll serve your health best to give resistance training precedent over cardio. Both are best, but this is a strong case for resistance training taking a lead in the discussion.

#2 What Drives Dr Gabrielle Lyon

I’m back with Dr Gabrielle Lyon to find out what drives her, to dig into her values and how she walks them out in her life. We start off talking about spirituality and Gabrielle shares the gravity she faces as she deals with actual life and death with patients. We talk about her navy seal husband who never complains. We of course talk at length about health and wellness and her own habits and get into how and why she is so driven. Dr. Lyon again, is board certified in family medicine and is a subject-matter expert and educator in the practical application of protein types and levels for health, performance, aging, and disease prevention. Which we dove deep into in my part one conversation. Her new book, over my left shoulder, is Forever Strong: A New, Science-Based Strategy for Aging Well, which I’ve been studying and is the catalyst for our conversation here.

#1 Strong Body Strong Mind w/ Dr Gabrielle Lyon | How To Remain Fully Capable As You Age

We are talking about aging well. Specifically, maintaining our mental and physical strength and capacity, as long as possible. The media talks about lifespan, but what I care about is health span. I want to be healthy and able to the end, whether my end is 60 years old or 100. As opposed to lingering for the last 5 or 20 years as is getting to be the norm. A tragic norm. My expert on the topic is Dr Gabrielle Lyon. I’ve known of Dr Lyons for a long, long time through Functional Medicine circles. Her focus and expertise is Muscle-Centric Medicine, and today we are talking about just that…muscle, and how we are missing this necessity in our culture that is obsessed with so many of the wrong things for aging well.  Dr. Lyon is board certified in family medicine and is a subject-matter expert and educator in the practical application of protein types and levels for health, performance, aging, and disease prevention. And we’re going to get into this topic of protein, in relation to muscle. Her new book is, Forever Strong: A New, Science-Based Strategy for Aging Well, which I’ve been studying and is the catalyst for our conversation here.

Peak Wellness | How To Have A Healthy Relationship With Food

Food is like money. We can’t do without it. Food is not good or bad. So we either have a good and healthy relationship with it and invest wisely, or we have a poor relationship with it and it’s a thorn in our side. We are losing the war with food in America and in this show we highlight a reality of our true and real addiction with food. All of us are on the spectrum. But again, we can’t stop eating forever, so what do we do? First we get aware of our individual issues around food, then work to manage them. This is not a call to abstain from food or from all the foods you like. It’s not a quest to take away your joy and pleasure from food. Food truly is life. The issue is whether we are in control of our food or it is in control of us. The difference is everything and this episode is meant to empower you to be in control, and get even more joy from your food. What we are realizing is to have the health, wellness, and physical and mental capacity we desire we must start by establishing a healthy relationship…with our food.  You can watch this full episodes on YouTube - just search for “Self Helpful with Kevin Miller” The Self Helpful podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping Life and Leadership coaches.

#4 Thinking Big w/Kevin Miller | The Big Idea, The Big Takeaway & The Big Action

Our catalyst for this series is Dr Benjamin Hardy and the concept of his new book with renowned business coach, Dan Sullivan, 10x is easier than 2x: How World-Class Entrepreneurs Achieve More By Doing Less. While I’ll testify that the entrepreneurial mindset is key for embracing this 10x concept, you don’t have to be that actual entrepreneur. You can harness other methodologies, which we covered some in part two and I’ll review again here. If you’ve ever heard the concept of 10x, you haven’t heard it this way. It’s not just thinking big, but requires thinking completely differently. And as Ben & Dan showcase, it’s actually easier this way. That is THE point. In part two I dissected the issue more with my Dad, Dan Miller, renowned author of 48 Days To The Work & Life You Love and host of the 48 Days podcast. We really dug into the self image issues around being able to consider a 10x mentality. I feel this is the crux of whether you will be able to actually leverage the concept in your own life and work. From the two conversations, I’ve pulled out six primary highlights. Join me to walk and talk through them.

#3 Thinking Big w/ Dan Miller | Entertain The Impossible To More Easily Discover What’s Possible

We continue our talk on Thinking Big. Part 1 and 2 was with Dr Benjamin Hardy who recently co-authored a book with famed business coach, Dan Sullivan, called 10x Is Easier Than 2x. Ben sent me an early copy of the book and I didn’t pick it up until my Dad texted me saying he’d read the book and it was revolutionizing his business. So fittingly I brought on my Dad to discuss this 10x concept further. My Dad of course is…Dan Miller, author of 48 Days To The Work – and Life – You Love, host of the 48 Days To The Work You Love podcast and one of the most well known influencers in business and personal development. He’s also a lifelong learner and for him to say, after a lifetime of successfully running businesses and today mentoring so many others in their businesses, that this concept is revolutionary to him, you’re going to want to hear why. What we uncovered was the need to consider who you are, to entertain the 10x of impossible progress. It may or may not fit you, but there is a workaround to doing it anyway that fits exactly who you are.  You can watch this full episodes on YouTube - just search for “Self Helpful with Kevin Miller” The Self Helpful podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping Life and Leadership coaches.

I’m back with Dr Benjamin Hardy to discuss what drives him. I just had Ben on the show for the 5th time to talk about his latest book, 10x Is Easier Than 2x, which is a psychological paradigm shifter for how we look at making progress. But this is a special episode. I had Ben on a show with me in 2019 where he made a reference to his childhood where he was 19 years old, barely made it out of high school, his very religious parents had divorced and walked away from their faith, his dad became a meth addict, and Ben was spending 14 hours per day playing World of Warcraft. To hear that rocked my world a good bit. Here I was trying to raise kids with work ethic, morals, experience and desire, and Ben had none of it at age 19. Yet he went on and in a fairly short amount of time, turned his life around and was getting six figure deals for his books and living a life of all around great success. I had him come back to talk with me in December of 2020 to unpack the story and understand what took him from zero to hero. What he shared became the lead story in my book, What Drives You, and right here and now you’re going to go hear the initial, raw discussion.

#1 Thinking Big w/ Dr Benjamin Hardy | How To Radically Accelerate Your Success By Forcing Yourself To Do Less

We’re talking about how the impossible goal is actually easily and more attainable than the possible goal. Why doubling your income in a year, for instance, can be easier than increasing it by 5 or 10%. This is not some motivational hype, and to prove the point I have with me, Dr Benjamin Hardy. This is the fourth time I’ve had Ben on the show, first with his book Willpower Doesn’t Work which is one of my top shelf go to books you’ve heard me reference many times. Then his book, Personality Isn’t Permanent which is another Hallmark book for me. However, it was in a show about what drives Ben that I heard his personal story, which became the lead off story in my new book, What Drives You. Ben is just a brilliant mind. His blog is read by millions every month and he is just a master and distilling out paradigm shifting concepts that radically change our lives. Lately he’s also been co authoring books with renowned business coach, Dan Sullivan. Their latest is called 10x is easier than 2x: How World-Class Entrepreneurs Achieve More By Doing Less. This is our muse today.

Peak Wellness | How To Reboot Your Body By Giving It A Digestive Break

We look at a key way to give your body a break. If you’ve ever driven a car that was overheating, you know the only way to give it a break is to turn it off and let it cool down. Our bodies in today’s culture, are almost always overheated as they try to digest food. Constant food, too much food, and food our bodies don’t like and struggle with. Even in our sleep our bodies are generally toiling away trying to deal with the foods we’ve put in them. We never give them a break. The term for this that nobody likes is…fasting. I grew up with it as a religious practice, but here we are primarily talking about it from a physiological and psychological standpoint as we truly believe it can be a profound tactic to use for your healing. We includes my co host in this show, Randy James, Medical Doctor and Functional Medicine expert. If you have a chronic illness or disease, fasting may be the best medicine possible. And I’ll preface it by saying...I don’t enjoy it. I’ve broken bones, and I don’t like wearing a cast to heal. But I do. I’ve dealt with psychological things and seen therapists. Not a great joy. But I want the help. The topic today is...not eating food. For a prolonged period. In order to enable the body to heal. Eating throughout the day, from morning till night, is something humans have done only for a very short amount of time. A time where we’ve seen a massive rise in chronic illness and disease. Our bodies were created for and intended to get a break from food. In this episode we discuss just this, prolonged fasting. And you’ll hear me address that I do not, at all, like to not eat. I love to eat. But I also love to feel great. To perform at a top notch level. I don’t want aches and pains, now at 52 or in the future at 92. I want to think clearly and creatively. I want to be fully mobile and spry. I have no reason to give these up. And taking times to not eat and let my body heal is paramount for all this. You don’t have to abstain from food for 30 days. But mere intermittent fasting is not enough to get the full benefits of fasting. So...here you go. The episode your taste buds and belly don’t want to hear, but the rest of your body is starving for.

#3 Emotional Power w/ Kevin Miller | The Big Idea, The Big Takeaway & The Big Action

I wrap up our series on Emotional Power with the Big Idea, The Big Takeaway & The Big Action, after incredible discussions with Dr Julia Digangi, author of Energy Rising - The Neuroscience of Leading With Emotional Power and Britt Frank, author of The Science of Stuck: Breaking Through Inertia To Find Your Path Forward. Here I’m taking the opportunity to pull out some of the primary issues I see us blind to as a culture regarding emotions. For context, I’m now focused on a goal of emotional mastery. Or you could say, spending the rest of my life endeavoring to better master my emotions. I’d ask you to think about it like mastering a team of majestic horses; you do so by gently, yet firmly, joining with them and nurturing them along with yourself to make progress in the desired direction. You don’t let them run loose by venting and emoting, and you also don’t stuff and deny them. And the heart of your emotional mastery is not leading the horses, but first, leading yourself. And again, most all of us hearing this right now are existing on the side of 1) Unfettered emotions: negative feelings running amok and overwhelming you, or 2) Imprisoned emotions: walled off, rejected, and ignored. Both sides are controlling you. Leading you. This is your chance to start understanding, leading, and mastering your emotions, and from that, your life. Here we go with 7 keys for emotional mastery and then the big action.

#1 Emotional Power w/ Dr. Julia DiGangi | How To Discover & Correct Your Self-Limiting Patterns

We begin a series on Emotional Power. Everyday life happens around us. We judge it all by how we feel about it, and we naturally trust and believe our experience. My guest today however says it’s our emotions that are the final judge of all our experiences. Not fact. Not our logic. But our emotions. To take it further she cites, “The very meaning in your life is determined by the emotions you have about it.” And what you’re about to learn is you have perceptions and resulting patterns programmed into your mind that are influencing how you perceive life overall, good and bad. Of course it’s the bad patterns that are sabotaging you, and this is our focus today, as we can correct these patterns. My expert guest on the topic is Dr. Julia DiGangi. Dr DiGangi is a neuropsychologist, who completed her residency at Harvard Medical School, Boston University School of Medicine, and the US Department of Veterans Affairs, and she is the author of a new book called Energy Rising: The Neuroscience of Leading with Emotional Power. Dr DiGangi has nearly two decades of experience studying the connection between our brains and our behavior and has worked with leaders around the world including the White House Press Office and the US Special Forces. Dr DiGangi shows people—at work and at home—how to harness the power of the brain to lead more satisfying and emotionally intelligent lives. We live in a world where science and emotions are viewed as radically disparate things and I have Dr DiGangi, here to dispel that.

Peak Wellness w/ Kara Collier | How sugar affects your unique metabolic health

In this episode we’re talking specifically in regards to glucose. You don’t care a bit about glucose, in and of itself. What you care about is your body's reaction to your food and lifestyle choices and resulting energy levels and clarity. And that’s the point, your body does react to what you eat and how you live, but it’s incredibly complex to understand the correlations. Unless, you are wearing a CGM…continual glucose monitor. This is new technology. If you’re aware of them, you probably associate them with diabetics. Not anymore, and you’re about to be schooled in some new hope. My expert on this topic and tech is Kara Collier. Kara is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), Licensed Dietitian/Nutritionist (LDN), and Certified Nutrition Support Clinician (CNSC) specializing in glucose control and metabolism. And she’s the the co-founder and VP of Health at Nutrisense, one of America’s fastest-growing health-tech startups. I’ve been wearing a CGM from Nutrisense. And folks, this is not an ad. No money has exchanged between us…not that I’d be against it, but my motive here is helping myself, and you, with new opportunities to monitor, understand, and increase our health and wellness.

#4 A Man’s Place w/ Kevin Miller | The Big Idea, The Big Takeaway & The Big Action

I wrap up our series on…men. Manhood. I called it “The Place Of Man” because that seems to be the question these days…what is…the place of men? How should we view ourselves? We grew up with expectations that seem to have changed. Maybe for better. Maybe for worse. I think both. But I find more and more men who feel numb, ashamed, or just dissatisfied. And I could say floundering with who they are, but it may be just as much, who they feel they should be. I talked in depth with Connor Beaton, founder of ManTalks, an international organization focused on men’s wellness, success, and fulfillment, author of Mens Work: A Practical Guide To Face Your Darkness, End Self-Sabotage, And Find Freedom and host of the Man Talks podcast. Then part three was with my great friend Dr Randy James. We got deep on the issues we are experiencing as men, and what we see in the culture. Here then are four main highlights I found from our conversations and my own pondering within them. I’ll also share about an event I just returned from with 39 guys who did 40 miles of the Grand Teton Trail in one day.

#3 A Man’s Place w/ Dr Randy James | Are We Having Fun Yet? How To Enjoy Life & Not Merely Survive It

We continue our talk on A Man’s Place and I titled the show, Are We Having Fun Yet? How To Enjoy Life & Not Merely Survive It. My catalyst was Connor Beaton, founder of ManTalks, an international organization focused on men’s wellness, success, and fulfillment, author of Mens Work: A Practical Guide To Face Your Darkness, End Self-Sabotage, And Find Freedom and host of the Man Talks podcast. Now I’m with Dr Randy James. Randy is truly my best friend and we’ve walked through life together for a good decade and a half. Randy and I started off discussing what the point is. When do we leave childhood and school and say, “Ok, I’m done having any fun and enjoying and experiencing this life, now I’ll just be responsible and devote the rest of my days to the grind of life.?” That sounds exaggerated, but are we living lives that our kids or young people would be inspired to pursue? No wonder kids aren’t leaving home soon these days. The point isn’t just to have fun. I’d argue that pursuing great purpose and fulfillment eclipses mere fun. But should we truly enjoy our lives? Solomon in the Bible said, and I paraphrase, “I tried it all, all variations of life, and t’s all vanity. Ultimately nothing is better for a man than that he should eat and drink, and that his soul should enjoy good in his labor. This also, I saw, was from the hand of God.” So Randy and I have a candid talk about work and family and responsibility and finding true joy and tending to our hearts and souls, as men, but the message is relevant to all.

#2 What Drives Connor Beaton

I’m back with Connor Beaton. In the previous episode we talked about How To Embrace Manhood & Also Be Human, and in this episode we talk about what drives Connor personally. I start off with something he disclosed in his book, where he shared that an overall driving force for him is the reality that he has been abused, and he has abused. He has been hurt, and he has hurt and from this he discusses dark motivation and light motivation. So we dive deep quickly. Connor is founder of ManTalks, an international organization focused on men’s wellness, success, and fulfillment. He is a coach, facilitator, teacher, podcast host and speaker helping men from all over the world find purpose, a joy-filled life, and a confident self identity, as a man. His new book is called Mens Work: A Practical Guide To Face Your Darkness, End Self-Sabotage, And Find Freedom. His popular podcast, which I was recently a guest on, is called Man Talks.

#1 A Man’s Place w/ Connor Beaton | How To Embrace Manhood & Also Be Human

We are talking about men. For those who grew up as boys and now live as men, you were raised in a social construct that had certain expectations. Times have changed and evolved, and some of those expectations have changed, but our programming never did. The result is we find ourselves in a culture where men are often confused, frustrated, ashamed, and dissatisfied. And that’s not helping men, or anyone who comes into contact with them. This is not a call to masculinity. This is also not a call to immasculinity. It’s a call to be an authentic and confident human. My expert is Connor Beaton. Connor is the founder of ManTalks, an international organization focused on men’s wellness, success, and fulfillment. He is a coach, facilitator, teacher, podcast host and speaker helping men from all over the world find purpose, a joy-filled life, and a confident self identity, as a man. Connor has a no-BS approach coupled with compassionate understanding of our own human limitations. He has coached thousands of men through private coaching, group work, workshops, retreats and masterminds, and has shared the stage with world class speakers like Gary Vaynerchuk, Lewis Howes, Danielle LaPorte, and many more. I came to Connor through his wife, Vienna Pharaeon, a renowned therapist and recent guest here on the show as well. My muse for this series is Connor’s new book, Mens Work: A Practical Guide To Face Your Darkness, End Self-Sabotage, And Find Freedom. His popular podcast, which I was recently a guest on, is called Man Talks. I brought Connor on because I am his target audience and I needed his insight and guidance.  You can watch this full episodes on YouTube - just search for “Self Helpful with Kevin Miller” The Self Helpful podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping Life and Leadership coaches.

Peak Wellness | Are We Growing Cancer?

The fight against cancer began around 1970, the year I was born. Culturally we’ve treated cancer like an insidious evil that is hunting us as a predator and we are its prey. It gets you or it doesn’t, you catch it or you don’t. Yet the science does not back this up. Do genetics contribute? 5-10% possibly. The main issue is what we are doing to our cells that is much the causation and reason for the continued growth. Now I realize that even the hint at us having any responsibility regarding cancer is a highly volatile premise. I’ve had family members with cancer. Who died from cancer. And I can’t guarantee I won’t get cancer. Regardless, this is not our opinion. Our very own National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) as a division of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) published "Cancer is a Preventable Disease that Requires Major Lifestyle Changes” and cites the highest percentage of causation is diet and specifically, inflammation. We have more and more doctors and experts coming forth with this message. It's not popular to the masses, but for those of us who want and accept control over our health, this...is glorious news.

What Drives You | Back To School Episode

I was offered the opportunity to do a back to school special for Apple Podcasts. I’ve already been asked about creating a version of my book, What Drives You, for a high school and college perspective. Which is fitting, as the impetus to write my book came from my desires for my adult kids. I realized what I most wanted for them was to know…what they want. To understand what they value and why, for themselves. And to commit to it. I want them to spend their days working at something they care about and to understand their core abilities and desires that they can fulfill in many roles. I want them to have joy and fulfillment. So this episode, is dedicated to them. If you’re a parent, share the show, or share the concepts. You can get my book, What Drives You, in any form, on Amazon or wherever you buy books.

#4 Boundaries w/ Kevin Miller | The Big Idea, The Big Takeaway & The Big Action

The Big Idea, The Big Takeaway & The Big Action. This is part four of my series on Boundaries, and this is my second series on boundaries in two years. Because it’s such a struggle for me, and according to the research, it is for you too. We don’t do boundaries because it rubs against our desire to serve and put other people first. Which is great. It really is. And the culmination of this series and concept of boundaries is, your heart is in the right place. Mine too. But our methodology is backwards. We’re doing it wrong. Good intent. Glorious intent. But ineffective execution. So sit with me a moment while I discuss three aspects of what I see as The Big Idea, The Big Takeaway & The Big Action regarding boundaries. Which is the new title of all my part four episodes in these series. If I don’t help you, and me, come to a big idea, a big takeaway, and a big action, then I’m not doing my job.

#3 Boundaries w/ Renée Marino | Find Peace By First Creating Boundaries Within Yourself

In this episode of Self Helpful, “Find Peace By First Creating Boundaries Within Yourself” - This is part three in my series on boundaries, instigated by psychotherapist Terri Cole and the message in her new book, Boundary Boss-The Essential Guide to Talk True, Be Seen and (Finally) Live Free. In this episode my chosen co-host is Broadway and screen star, Renée Marino. Renée is author of Becoming A Master Communicator and one of my favorite connoisseurs and practitioners of personal development. Renée listened to my conversation with Terri Cole and at the top of the show, said, “I always thought of boundaries as my boundaries to create for another person, right? Like, so here are my boundaries in my exterior relationships for you. But it's so much about the boundaries we create within ourselves.” This steered the conversation to a new paradigm that is helping me tremendously.

#1 Boundaries w/ Terri Cole | How Putting Your Needs First Serves Others Best

This is part one on a series about boundaries. I’ve spent most of my life with zero boundaries, thinking I was doing the world and everyone in it a favor. Instead, I found myself serving others…with a bitter heart. Or just a worn out heart. To the point where some of those closest with me told me to just go take care of myself, so that…I could take care of them better. But I still grapple with the concept a lot and I need more help. I bet you do too. So, I invited Terri Cole to the show is a licensed psychotherapist, global relationship and empowerment expert, and the author of a new book, Boundary Boss-The Essential Guide to Talk True, Be Seen and (Finally) Live Free. The message in her book is the muse for our show together here. Terri reaches over 450,000 people weekly through her blog, social media platform, and her popular podcast, The Terri Cole Show.

Scott Allender #4 | Lessons w/ Kevin - 7 Keys For Becoming Emotionally Intelligent

This is part four and my wrap up on this series on Emotional Intelligence. It’s rocked my world because I, like so many others, considered myself fairly emotionally intelligent because I can read other people fairly well, sense their emotions, and perform. Think of “How To Win Friends & Influence People.” A great and valuable skill for getting along with people at a face value level. But in long term relationships with ourselves and others, this skill doesn’t get us far and we find ourselves in hard places. I know this well, as it’s my story. My expert for this series was Scott Allender, author of, The Enneagram of Emotional Intelligence: A Journey to Personal and Professional Success, then I also brought on Ian Morgan Cron, author of The Story Of You. From my conversations I found seven key highlights that stood out to me on how to become emotionally intelligent. And I end with a special resource I’m avidly studying for my own life and progress, from another expert who is no longer alive.

Scott Allender #3 | Discussion w/ Ian Morgan Cron - How To Interrupt The Loop of Your Natural Self Unawareness

How To Interrupt The Loop of Your Natural Self Unawareness. This is part three in our series on Emotional Intelligence. A primary point is the foundation of emotional intelligence is not being in tune with others emotions, but your own. My muse has been Scott Allender, author of book is The Enneagram of Emotional Intelligence: A Journey to Personal and Professional Success and host of the Evolving Leader podcast. In this show I brought on a mentor of Scott’s who introduced us, Ian Morgan Cron. Ian is a renowned executive coach and Enneagram expert, and just a guy with radical insightful into the human psyche. He is his own guinea pig for self-awareness and we go down the rabbit hole of discussing the loop of self UNawareness we all fall into, every day, him too. He’s just gotten really good at pulling himself out interrupt the loop and bring himself back to the present, which is again, a precept of emotional intelligence. Upon our conclusion he exclamed, “Holy moly, we really covered a lot of ground.” I encourage you to listen to my series with Ian, and check out his latest book, The Story Of You and his top ranked podcast, Typology.  A note, Ian recently uprooted and moved from his stylish home in Tennessee, to the middle of Mexico. Just to shake things up. He spoke with me from his new home where you’ll hear cars driving by on the cobblestone streets. I hope you find intrigue in the background noise, as I did.  You can watch this full episodes on YouTube - just search for “Self Helpful with Kevin Miller” The Self Helpful podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches.

Scott Allender #2 | What Drives Him

In this episode, I’m back with emotional intelligence expert, Scott Allender, to walk through the seven key areas of life and what drives him. As you can expect, much of his drive, values, and habits come back to his quest for emotional intelligence. Spiritually he discusses his tendency to want to control the circumstances of life and his self-deception around the idea that without him things won't get done or get done right. Relationally he really wants deep connection and struggles greatly if he doesn't feel he has them. Regarding money he gets into three types of survival relating to enneagram types; self preservation, social instinct, and sexual, and how we must create balance within your natural instincts. This and more coming up. Scott's book is The Enneagram of Emotional Intelligence: A Journey to Personal and Professional Success, and you can tune into him at the Evolving Leader podcast.

Scott Allender #1 | Emotional Intelligence & How To Succeed By Becoming Radically Self-Aware

Our world applauds people with a high IQ. And yet someone having a high IQ has zero value to me personally. It may have no value for that person or anyone. It merely says they have the possibility of capacity. It doesn’t mean they can or will do anything worthwhile with it, and even if they are brilliant and figure out how to live on Mars, they may be miserable and make everyone else miserable. So what is a better measuring stick for overall potential than IQ? I submit to you it is EQ. Emotional quotient. Or emotional intelligence. My guest today is an expert and cites that emotional intelligence as the single biggest predictor of our personal and professional success. Scott Allender is an expert in global leadership and organizational development. Along with co-hosting The Evolving Leader podcast, he regularly teaches Enneagram workshops and conducts typing interviews and emotional intelligence assessments for individuals and teams who seek to become more radically self-aware and cognizant of the impact they have on the world. His new book is titled, The Enneagram of Emotional Intelligence: A Journey to Personal and Professional Success. Let me candidly offer to you that my inspiration for this show is my own journey of becoming more…much more…emotionally intelligent. In the past I thought I was, as most emotionally unintelligent people believe. I let some things I was good at, like controlling my emotional expression and my social awareness trick me into thinking I was emotionally intelligent. And the truth that finally reared its ugly head was that I was very emotionally unintelligent. Join me as we change some paradigms and give some hope to what you can become.

Peak Wellness | Why Placebos Are More Important Than Real Medicine

Everyone has heard of “the placebo effect” and it’s usually thought of negatively. We don’t want mind games to fix us, we want a literal ingredient or treatment. But here is the deal, your attitude and expectations can cause a placebo to heal you, or cause a literally beneficial treatment to fail you. What you expect has a dramatic effect on your reality. That’s not conjecture, it’s clinical. Do you expect your exercise to enhance your health? Do you expect your nutritional supplements to enhance your health? Do you expect your efforts to eat healthy to enhance your health? The bigger issue is your awareness of how you feel and what you expect from all your efforts. If you have doubt or bitterness in regards to any of your efforts you are likely sabotaging them. But you’ll be incredibly well served to increase your positive expectations of improvement. I’m joined of course by Randy James, Medical Doctor, Functional Medicine and owner of truelifemedicine.com, and you’re about to hear how he and I have great faith that our expectations are incredibly powerful placebos in our overall levels of health and wellness.

Hala Taha #4 | Lessons w/ Kevin - How To Eliminate Failure In Your Life When You Understand The Goal Beyond The Goal

This is part four in my series on The Art of Trying. My muse has been Hala Taha, host of the top ranked business podcast, Young and Profiting and founder and CEO of YAP Media. Talking with Hala about her trajectory of trying and trying different things on the way to what worked, for her overall goal, has been eye opening. When we understand our goal is bigger than any one role or face-value achievement, it takes the pressure off and greatly broadens the different methods we can…try. And if one method doesn’t work, it’s ok. We know the bigger, greater goal, and can attempt it through another means and method and quite literally make failure impossible. Let’s talk through it briefly. And find Hala Taha wherever you listen to podcasts at Young & Profiting, and on social media at yapwithhala.

Hala Taha #3 | Discussion w/ Renée Marino - How To Commit To Your Destination But Quit Any Vehicle That’s Not Getting You There

This is part 3 in our series on the Art of Trying. The previous two episodes have featured Hala Taha, host of the top ranked business podcast, Young and Profiting and founder and CEO of YAP Media, a business podcast network with an award-winning social media and podcast marketing agency for top podcasters, celebrities and CEOs. Hala is a rockstar at trying and failing until she figures out what works. Then succeeding. In this episode I brought on a fellow rock star of the art of trying. Broadway and movie star, Renée Marino who you can see as the lead female role in Clint Eastwood’s movie, Jersey Boys. Renée is a frequent co-host with me because she’s an expert in personal development and a master communicator…her book is called, “Becoming A Master Communicator”. As an actress, Renée Marino’s job was trying and failing. You do audition after audition and get told no, until you get told yes. And it’s only one “Yes!” to a movie like Jersey Boys and boom, you’ve made it to the big screen. Renée brought us to looking at whatever we do and go after, any achievement, there is something deeper we are trying to fulfill that gives us space to try and fail or quit many things, on the way to what works, for the ultimate goal we are striving for. If her only goal was to be the lead in one show or movie, that is narrow and limiting. If her goal was to perform, and bigger to entertain, and bigger to communicate, and at the core to communicate, she can do that in so many ways. You’ll gain some incredibly liberating perspectives in this episode. The Self Helpful podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches.

Hala Taha #2 | What Drives Her - Define Your Values & Stay True To Yourself When You Can’t Think Logically

I’m back with Hala Taha in my series on the art of trying. This is part two, my “What Drives You” episode and I walk through the key areas of life and what drives Hala. Before even diving into specifics like spirituality, relationships, and health & wellness, we simply talk about Hala’s overall drive, as she shared in the previous episode how her initial drive was fueled by her father who immigrated to the US, and an expectation to become a doctor like the rest of her siblings. This is where she shared her commitment to consistently define her values so they would see her through in challenging times when you can’t think logically. This was significant to me and we dug in deeper to this. We then start off with spirituality and get on the topic of how we are all brainwashed in our upbringing and need to re-brainwash ourselves toward what we truly…value.

Hala Taha #1 | Master The Arts Of Trying & Failing In Order To Succeed

This kicks off a 4-part series where my primary muse is…the art of trying. In the personal development world we give a lot of pithy lipservice to trying, quitting and failure…I could add rejection as well. But as a culture, even amongst aspiring people like us, I feel we often fail to grasp a healthy and productive perspective on these concepts. My guest expert on the topic is Hala Taha. Hala is host of the Young and Profiting (YAP) Podcast, frequently ranked as a #1 Business and Entrepreneurship podcast across all apps. Hala is also the founder and CEO of YAP Media, a business podcast network with an award-winning social media and podcast marketing agency for top podcasters, celebrities and CEOs. I met Hala at a podcasting convention and discovered she has quite a story. Her pedigree of success runs parallel to an impressive rap sheet of failures. Things she’s tried that didn’t work out. Things she quit until she found what worked. Overall you see a committment to succeed that kept her persevering until she did just that. Found what worked. I invited her onto the show to help us find more willingness and comfort in trying things. And try. And try different methods until we find what works to achieve the overall goal of success…in whatever way success looks like to you. We also ended with a brief masterclass on branding you won’t want to miss. Find Hala on your podcast app at Young and Profiting, and I encourage you to whether you consider yourself young or not. She’s recently had Lewis Howes and Seth Godin on. The Self Helpful podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches.

Peak Wellness | How To Mitigate & Manage Your Genetic Set Points

I really want life to be only what we make it. And deny any genetic limitations. And yet realize we do in fact have some genetic set points that can help, and hinder us. I’ve suffered by denying any genetic hindering. But our culture by far and large I see suffering by blaming too much on genetics. The big question is…how much of an impact do they have on your health? We are not here to discount the role of genetics, and yet the goal is to take as much agency as possible. The goal is to give you hope that you are not a victim to your genetics. So let’s discuss wow much of a role they play in your health and wellness and what can you do to compensate for and negate them? I’m of course joined by my Peak Wellness co host, Randy James, Medical Doctor and Functional Medicine expert, who walks with patients every day as they pursue their best wellness amongst all varieties of genetic challenges.

Dandapani #4 | Lessons w/ Kevin - Focus & 6 Lessons From A Former Monk & Current Master

This is my wrap up from what I’m working to learn from this series on focus and our expert, Dandapani, world renowned, leading expert on leveraging the human mind and the power of focus, and author of, The Power of Unwavering Focus. I was fortunate to have two, long conversations with Dandapani from his Siva Ashram in Costa Rica, with the second discussion being a deep dive into a controversial view on spirituality that was profound for me. I think we’ll have some follow up discussions that I’ll be eager to share with you. As I reviewed my notes from the series on focus, I found six key lessons bubble to the surface, and I’ll talk through the concepts with you now.  You can now watch full episodes on YouTube!

Dandapani #3 | Discussion w/ Jared Angaza - Unwavering Focus & How To Harness The Self Discipline You Already Have

We continue this series on Focus, highlighting that it’s not about gritting your teeth, but in changing your paradigm on what focus is and how to harness the focus that you do have within you. Our expert is Dandapani, a world renowned, leading expert on leveraging the human mind and the power of focus, and author of, The Power of Unwavering Focus. Listen to my previous talk with him in part one, or just type “dandapani focus” in your search engine and you’ll see his TED talk with 6.7 million views. Today I bring in a long time devotee of Dandapani’s who has been studying his work and teaching on focus for many years. My brother, Jared Angaza. We kick off discussing Dandapani’s statement that “most people surrender their decision-making process to their environment. And it takes discipline to take ownership. This led into an organic discussion on discipline and how we as a culture misperceive what discipline really is. If you feel you are undisciplined, overall or in certain areas, I invite you to listen in, as the conversation brought some revelations to me. We continues on then, digging further into how to have more focus in our lives, and for disclosure, Jared and I both struggle with ADHD, so this is an acutely relevant topic to us.

Dandapani #2 | *Spirituality Special* - Take Charge Of Your Life By Defining Your Spiritual Goal & Committing To A Specific Construct

This is part 2 in my series on focus with Dandapani, a sought-after international speaker and leading expert on leveraging the human mind and the power of focus, and author of, The Power of Unwavering Focus. Search for him and find his TED talk that went viral. Normally this would be my “What Drives You” episode where I walk through the key areas of life and ask, what drives my guests. However, the first category is spirituality, and as Dandapani is a former monk and current Hindu priest, I pressed in on a controversial statement he had written in his book. This is the quote, “In taking charge of your life, you should not leave it up to the environment or, God forbid, the Universe, such as claiming, “The Universe is going to guide me.” I can assure you Jupiter, Pluto and Uranus are not sitting around figuring out how to solve the complexities of your life." I asked Dandapani to unpack this, and what followed was a fairly blunt and irreverent discussion on spirituality in our current culture. It was unique enough that Dandapani and I spoke afterwards about more candid talks on spirituality and possibly even an event in America. Dandapani is a coach to high performing entrepreneurs and athletes, because, as he said, “They actually follow through on what I coach them to do.” And a crux of what you’ll hear is Dandapani stating that to achieve success in any area of life we need a clear strategy that we adopt and adhere to, depending on our specific goals. And most high performers do this, except in the area of spirituality, where we pick and choose from a menu of spiritual concepts. And it doesn’t work. So in this episode, he really takes it to task.

Dandapani #1 | Focus Like A Monk Even When You Are An Entrepreneur, Parent, & Spouse

We all know we’re in an age of distraction. It feels like we all have ADHD. We are all consumed with multi-tasking and dealing with what is urgent and can’t ever get any of the big, important things done. Meanwhile we all follow and applaud the people who can manage to focus and achieve great things. We think focus comes from gritting our teeth and making ourselves, and we are missing the concept. My guest today and expert on this topic is Dandapani. Dandapani grew up in his family home, went to school and actually graduated from university with a degree in electrical engineering. He left it all behind to become an ordained Hindu monk under the guidance of one of Hinduism’s foremost spiritual leaders of our time. For 10 years he lived a life of serious personal discipline and training at his guru’s cloistered monastery in Hawaii. Here he learned to control his mind. He learned to focus. And he believes this is the key to finding one’s purpose. As you may think, “Yeah, it’s not so hard to focus when you live in a monastery in Hawaii,” Dandapani agrees. Yet he believed the teachings would work in the outside world as well, and now he’s proved it. He left the monastery and moved to New York where he started a business, got married, and became a father. Today he is a highly sought-after international speaker and leading expert on leveraging the human mind and the power of focus to create a life of purpose and joy. His TEDx talk has over 6.2 million views and he has other videos with tens of millions of views. He sat down with me from his thirty-three-acre spiritual sanctuary and garden in Costa Rica to discuss the message in his book, The Power of Unwavering Focus. One concept from his message has changed my life. That of the mind being a vast space with many different areas and our awareness is a glowing orb of our focus that can only light up one room at a time. You’re about to hear of this, and more.

Lynda-Ross Vega #3 | Lessons w/ Kevin - 5 Steps To Understanding & Leveraging Your Perspective Style

This is the wrap up to my series on perception, which continues to be a prominent issue for me amongst the whole concept of personal development. As long as we perceive our reality to be factual reality, we are greatly limited and handicapped. I brought on an expert on perception, Lynda-Ross Vega. She and clinical psychologist Gary Jordan developed the Perception Style Theory to help individuals identify their strengths, appreciate human differences, and navigate challenges. Their book is Unlock the Power of Your Perception. After talking in depth with Lynda-Ross, then talking further in part two of the series with my brother, Jared Angaza, I’ve pulled out 5 aspects of perspective style I’m working to learn from.

Lynda-Ross Vega #2 | Discussion w/ Jared Angaza - Know Thyself - How To Wield Your Nature & Not Let It Own You

We’ve been looking at the idea of an inherent perception style. Meaning, that you have a hard wired perception style. You will naturally experience life a certain way. The expert I brought in to discuss this is Lynda-Ross Vega. Lynda-Ross spent her life in the high end business world and partnered with clinical psychologist Gary Jordan to research and create the Perception Style Theory to help individuals identify their strengths, appreciate human differences, and navigate challenges. Their book, and my muse, is Unlock the Power of Your Perception. I discussed the concept with Lynda-Ross in the previous episode. Here I bring my brother, Jared Angaza, in to discuss this further. We accept the concept of an inherent perception style. Jared actually has twins and testifies to them having a different perception style, right out of the womb. However, we agree on the ability to understand our inherent perception style, not judge it as right or wrong, and wield it according to what will serve ourselves, others, and the situation best. Listen in to see if you agree and are game to understand and leverage your perception style.

Lynda-Ross Vega #1 | How To Discern Objective Reality By Understanding Your Inherent Perception Style

There you are in a situation with some other people. Something happens. People react and respond differently. Later in the retelling of what happened you hear someone telling a story that is incredibly off base. Someone else chimes in with, “That’s not what happened, this is!” And you find yourself wanting to tell what really happened and your exasperated at everyone else’s misinterpretation of what went down. The issue at hand is…we think what we experience is what really happened. It’s fact. And guess what, that’s how everyone else feels as well. If you’re solving a crime, you need to get down to what really happened. In regular life however, you’ll never prove anything and it seldom matters. Things happen and we all have an inherent Perspective Style we filter the happening through. This is how we experience the world. And it’s not fact, it’s experience. My guest and expert on this subject is Lynda-Ross Vega. Lynda Ross spent her life in the high end business world and partnered with clinical psychologist Gary Jordan to research and create the Perception Style Theory to help individuals identify their strengths, appreciate human differences, and navigate challenges. When their book, Unlock the Power of Your Perception, came across my desk, I knew I wanted to discuss it on the show. We all naturally believe our perception of the world and events is fact, when in truth, nobody can claim fact, and if you want healthy relationships, you’ll want to hear what Lynda-Ross and I cover in this show.  You can watch this full episodes on YouTube, just search for Self helpful with Kevin miller  The Self Helpful podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches.

Peak Wellness | Understand & Mitigate Adrenal Fatigue

Welcome to the Peak Wellness episode where we seek to strengthen our bodies, our foundations, and build our lives on top of them. In this episode, Understand & Mitigate Adrenal Fatigue. The Mayo Clinic defines adrenal fatigue as, “a lay term applied to a collection of nonspecific symptoms, such as body aches, fatigue, nervousness, sleep disturbances and digestive problems,” and goes on to say, “Your adrenal glands produce a variety of hormones that are essential to life.” The medical term "adrenal insufficiency" refers to inadequate production of one or more of these hormones as a result of an underlying disease or surgery.” Dr James and I unpack the concepts so you can discern if some of your issues extend beyond a mere lack of energy and into a true adrenal problem. And then of course, what to do about it. The key is...recovery. But sleep alone is not enough! The Self Helpful podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches.

Britt Frank #4 | Lessons w/ Kevin - 9 Paradigm Changing Points On Anxiety & Trauma

This is my wrap up on this series on anxiety, though running parallel with it was the topic of trauma. My muse and resident expert was Britt Frank, a survivor of much trauma and trial. Britt is a renowned therapist and author of The Science of Stuck: Breaking Through Inertia to Find Your Path Forward. She turns our perspective on anxiety upside down, and gives us a fresh look at what trauma is and how to come to a reckoning with it. In episode three I brought on past guest, Britt’s friend and associate, and one of New York City’s most in demand relationship therapists, Vienna Pharaon, author of The Origins of You: How Breaking Family Patterns Can Liberate the Way We Live and Love. From both of these experts I’ve come away with 9 points on anxiety, and 9 points on trauma, that I’m now holding and working to learn and engage with in my own life. I’ll share them with you now.

Britt Frank #3 | Discussion w/ Vienna Pharaon - Acknowledge Trauma & Give Yourself Power

We are looking at trauma not necessarily at the tragic level, but defined as, “a lasting, negative, and limiting emotional response that often results from living through a distressing event.” To this degree, nobody is immune. This is my series on anxiety. I had brought Britt Frank in as my expert and we talked through the message in her book, The Science of Stuck: Breaking Through Inertia to Find Your Path Forward. This is part three in the series where I bring in a peer to discuss the topic, and I have with me Vienna Pharaon. Vienna is one of New York City’s most sought after relationship therapists, she has over 700k followers on Instagram, and I did a series with her around the message in her book, The Origins of You: How Breaking Family Patterns Can Liberate the Way We Live and Love. Vienna is who recommended Britt to me. In this discussion, actually near the latter part, I ask Vienna about giving gravity to the trauma’s in our life and she actually corrects me and says we want to acknowledge them, but not give to much weight to them and distort them. The mic drop happens when she says, ““When we acknowledge something, we fear it gives power to IT, when instead, it gives power to US.” Acknowledge, don’t distort. This was incredibly insightful.  The Self Helpful podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches.

Britt Frank #2 | What Drives Her - Balancing The Gas & Brake Pedals Of Life

I’m back with neuropsychotherapist and trauma expert Britt Frank to hear what drives her. Britt is my expert for this series on anxiety, as much of the focus of her new book, The Science of Stuck: Breaking Through Inertia To Find Your Path Forward, is that anxiety is a good thing. It’s the body doing what it’s supposed to do. It’s us not understanding the dynamics of anxiety and the body’s natural responses that causes problems. Here more in the previous episode. This is part two with Britt where I walk with her through the key areas of life, and it’s in the mental category where she shares her focus to balance waking up in the morning and putting the gas pedal down, with also knowing when she needs to brake and downshift to manage her output, recovery, and mental state. The concept of shifting gears and the pause between has come up in multiple shows recently, so we expand on this more here.  The Self Helpful podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches.

Britt Frank #1 | Anxiety Is The Body Responding Appropriately & How To Get To The Underlying Cause

We are a culture caught in a plague of anxiety. But my guest states nothing is wrong with anxiety, it’s simply our bodies responding appropriately to a threat. Anxiety is not a mental health problem, it’s simply a physical cue that allows us to know when we are out of alignment with external safety and/or internal truth. Britt Frank is a licensed neuropsychotherapist and trauma expert who is trained in IFS (Internal Family Systems) and SE (Somatic Experiencing). She is a speaker and an award-winning adjunct instructor at the University of Kansas, where she’s taught classes on ethics, addiction, and clinical social work. Her new book is our muse for this series and it’s called, The Science of Stuck: Breaking Through Inertia To Find Your Path Forward. I brought her to us to discuss her research on anxiety and body based feeling vs thought based therapy. You’re about to hear some paradigm shifting information that will change how you view your anxiety and get you paying attention to your bodies responses in order to better manage your mental state.  The Self Helpful podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches.

Our guest today is Dr Daniel O’Neill, orthopedic surgeon, sports medicine doctor, and sports psychologist. Dr O’Neill is leading the charge to help our kids and his book is called Survival Of The Fit: How Physical Education Ensures Academic Achievement and a Healthy Life. Our kids are more and more sedentary. They are getting fatter and out of shape and sicker and the consequences are dire, as their brains grow and function out of the health of their bodies. Schools are doing away with physical education and activity and us parents aren’t fostering play and activity and are letting the kids sit still on screens all day. My co-host is Randy James, Medical Doctor and Functional Medicine expert, and we struggle with this just as every other parent does. We want smart kids. We want resilient kids. Kids who don’t fall into depression. So what do we do? That’s what this show is about. Find Dr Daniel O’Neill at survivalofthefit.net You can now watch full episodes on YouTube!

Kristina Mänd-Lakhiani #4 | Lessons w/ Kevin - The Dark Side Of Self-Help & How To Discover The Authentic You

I’m wrapping up my four part series on Authenticity where I brought Kristina Mänd-Lakhiani on as the expert. Our muse was the message in her new book, Becoming Flawesome: The Key to Living An Imperfectly Authentic Life. Kristina again is the cofounder of Mindvalley, a life transformation platform boasting a 20 million strong following, which has afforded her massive exposure to the personal development space and the good and bad of it. Something I have been privy to as well. I’m going to address that in this episode, and I want to also bring attention to what I feel is the number one issue around this topic of authenticity. I feel the key to being the authentic you is to discover, probably for the first time, who that actually is. And further, I’ll claim that becoming the authentic you is an ongoing process you can be evolving towards your entire life. I say can evolve to, as it’s not a given. As Robin Sharma says, and I paraphrase, you don’t live the same day over and over for 75 years and call it a life, or an evolution. We have to choose to evolve and continually discover our authentic selves.  The Self Helpful podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches.

Kristina Mänd-Lakhiani #3 | Discussion w/ Jared Angaza - How To Show Up As The Authentic You, First For Yourself & Then For Others

This is part three of my series on Kristina Mänd-Lakhiani, cofounder of MindValley and author of Becoming Flawesome: The Key to Living An Imperfectly Authentic Life. This is my discussion episode and I brought back my brother, Jared Angaza, as I know him to be someone who has fervently pursued the discovery and continual alignment with his authentic self. The tagline of this Self Helpful podcast is, “elevate your personal experience and the way you show up for others”, and Jared coined it. In this show we dig further into aspects of what it means to be authentic and he brings up the aspect of before we can show up authentically for others, we need to first show up authentically for ourselves. And many of us have never known our authentic selves, and we have work to do to discover who that is. We cover a primary way to start that you can begin today.

Kristina Mänd-Lakhiani #2 | What Drives Her - Happiness Is The Biggest Contributor To Health

I’m back for part two with Kristina Mänd-Lakhiani, cofounder of MindValley and author of Becoming Flawesome: The Key to Living An Imperfectly Authentic Life. This is my What Drives You episode where I walk with Kristina through her personal Values & Habits. It’s in the category of Health & Wellness where she shares her perspective that being happy does more for her than anything else. A point I think we miss as we give all our focus to what we eat, how we sleep, and getting good sleep. She also attests to being European and drinking wine, eating chocolate and having an active lifestyle that includes kickboxing classes. Other highlights; she feels we often hide behind spiritual concepts rather than dealing with emotions. Regarding her mental state she strives to be kind with herself and to replace judgment with curiosity. In her work she wants to make sure that in whatever she’s digging for, that she also enjoys the digging itself. Wise counsel.  Quick note, if you like to watch your podcasts, you can now get this full episode on YouTube, just type in Self helpful with Kevin Miller.

Kristina Mänd-Lakhiani #1 | How To Be Authentically You & Still Respect Others

I continue to be enamored with this tension of being self-aware and being true to yourself, while also being sensitive to others and respecting who and how they are. We tend to fall on the side of “just being me” and being raw and unfiltered which is likely to get you ostracized, or just performing for others and being untrue to yourself and in essence being dishonest to those you care about. I’ve fallen on the latter side most of my life and just people pleased to make everyone happy, which is exhausting and leads me to just retreating from everyone. This doesn’t help me or them. My expert guest for this series is Kristina Mänd-Lakhiani You’ll likely know her as the cofounder of Mindvalley, which is billed as “the world’s most powerful life transformation platform with an ever-growing 20 million-strong following.” They boast the teaching and trainings of many of the personalities I’ve had here on my podcast. Kristina is an entrepreneur, writer, international speaker, artist, and philanthropist. She grew up in the former Soviet Union and has a tremendous story of overcoming. Today she’s based in Estonia and my muse is her new book, Becoming Flawesome: The Key to Living An Imperfectly Authentic Life. Like me, Kristina has spent decades in the personal development industry and in this episode we candidly discuss the dark side of personal growth and how it can feed our insecurities. How it can leave you feeling you are never enough and tire you out with a feeling of constant striving. Kristina has a heart for people who, like her, realize they have become a missing person in their own life.” She cites that you won’t find peace being even 95% honest and authentic if you’re still 5% fake or performing. This is a message I really wanted to dig into for myself and I believe you’ll resonate with it. The Self Helpful podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches.

Peak Wellness | How To Make Peace With Food And Your Eating Habits

I’m continuing on with the question listeners answered about what health issue they’d most like a magic pill for, and we had so many responses about food issues. People shared they’d want help enjoying healthier food. Help not wanting to eat so much. Help losing weight. What we kick off the show with is the stark reality that food is our number one drug. And we can’t quit it. It is so much more powerful and problematic than we understand. Truthfully this episode is possibly top of the list of importance regarding our quests for better health and wellness. We want to be able to enjoy our food, not be scared of or feel guilty about it. Or suffer from it. The Self Helpful podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches. Visit Ziglar.com and let them inspire your true coaching performance.

Dr Lee Warren #4 | Lessons w/ Kevin Miller - Moving Forward When You Can't Move On

This is part 4 and the wrap up on my series on Dr Lee Warren, and the message in his book, Hope Is The First Dose: A treatment plan for recovering from trauma, tragedy and other massive things. If you feel you haven’t dealt with any big trauma, then I encourage you to listen in, as this will prepare you for when it comes into your life. Talking with Lee about the journey through the tragic loss of his son, and the deaths and loss he encounters as a brain surgeon, was sobering. Then talking with Richie Norton about the loss of his son as well, has opened my eyes to what I feel are profound truths regarding how we can deal and move forward after significant pain and loss. The key aspect is we don’t simply move on. We don’t get over it. That’s a perspective guaranteed to keep us stuck and handicap. What happened is a part of us now and we are forever different. Forever grieving to a degree. But we can still move forward to beautiful places. We can. If…we deal with it healthfully. Here are nine key things I’m working to learn from this series.  Go to Zocdoc.com/KEVIN and download the Zocdoc app for FREE. Then find and book a top-rated doctor today.

Dr Lee Warren #3 | Discussion w/ Richie Norton - How To Transcend Loss & Pain By Choosing The Meaning You Give To It

I, for one, don’t enjoy talking about pain and loss. I want to just be happy. That is the hope of this show. How to transcend beyond it. Not get over it. Not to ever be the same again. But go forward wiser and stronger and with abiding joy. This is part three of my series on Dr Lee Warren and the message in his new book, Hope Is The First Dose: A treatment plan for recovering from trauma, tragedy and other massive things. My co-host for this segment is Richie Norton. I’ve had Richie on my show multiple times. He’s an influencer to influencers and the author of The Power of Starting Something Stupid and Anti-Time Management. Richie is also one of the most inspiring people I know. And I chose him for this show because, like Lee, Richie also lost a child. This show is not about losing children, but those are tragic muses to look at to see how someone could not only endure such pain and loss, but come out, well. Not unscathed. Not justifying it. As you’ll hear, Richie likens it to forever carrying something on your back. It never goes away. It either weighs you down, or you get stronger. The conversation was deep, contemplative, but with Richie, always some laughs. Go to Zocdoc.com/KEVIN and download the Zocdoc app for FREE. Then find and book a top-rated doctor today.

Dr Lee Warren #2 | Values Q&A - Committing To Ideals While Having Grace You Won’t Be 100%

I’m back with Dr Lee Warren for part two in this series, and this is my Values & Habits show. Lee is a war veteran, author, podcaster, and active brain surgeon. In part one we discussed the message in his new book, “Hope Is The First Dose: A treatment plan for recovering from trauma, tragedy and other massive things,” and we led off with the story of his 19 year old son Mitch who died from multiple stab wounds in the neck, in what will forever be an unsolved mystery. Here we walk through the primary areas of life and it’s in the area of relationships where Lee talks about his values and his intent to never allow discomfort in his relationships to continue, but his commitment to get it sorted out and not end a day with possible regrets. Which sounds valiant. Then he added that he doesn't handle all that perfectly, but it's an ideal. I so appreciate that, as I feel we often have big ideals, but when we fall short, we abandon them or just feel guilty. Join us as Lee walks us through the key areas of life and the values he has and ideals he strives to walk out.

Dr Lee Warren #1 | How To Recover From Loss & Pain That You Will Never Get Over

We all have trauma, pain, and disappointment that affects us. From massive, life threatening events to emotional scars to the loss of a dream. We tend to judge and minimize our pains, but a point of this episode is, if you have a pain, regardless, it just is. And you’ll never fully get over it. But it will either hamper you, or you can look at it as, “Well, that was a bummer, but how can I use it to help me?” Which is the point. Though we get on a soapbox about not justifying anything. We can find some redemption, but we aren’t going to sugarcoat that it makes up for it with a tidy little bow. My guest on this topic is Dr Lee Warren. Lee is a war veteran, author, podcaster, and active brain surgeon. He forever impacted how I view my personal faith, the first time I had him on the show for his book, I’ve Seen The End Of You, where Lee grapples with having faith in miracles while looking at someone’s brain scan and knowing the person will die. This time we’re talking about his new book, Hope Is The First Dose: A treatment plan for recovering from trauma, tragedy and other massive things. Lee is an expert here because on August 20, 2013, his nineteen-year-old son Mitch died of multiple stab wounds to the neck. Mitch’s best friend died along with him with one stab wound. Whether the knife used to kill Mitch was in his hand or someone else’s, whether he was at fault or a victim, they will never know. An unsolved murder. This could have been the end of Lee. Or, as you’ll hear, he has moved on. Not without scars. Not getting over it. But finding some redemption and he lays out how you can too.

Peak Wellness | What To Do About The Threat Of Diabetes

Hello Self Helpful listeners…in this episode, What To Do About The Threat Of Diabetes. These episodes were formerly called “Functional Friday” but they will now land on random days, so we’ve renamed it simply…”Peak Wellness,” and my premise is that our health and wellness is our foundation that we build everything else on. All this self-help happens from us, from our bodies, so the more we strengthen them, the more and better we can apply new information and take action on it.  In this episode…and we continue on with major health issues brought to us by listeners, and we now hit diabetes. There are some people with legit, type 1 diabetes. There are significant things they can do to minimize the symptoms. I’m joined by my Health Check co-host, Randy James, Medical Doctor and Functional Medicine expert, and as you’ll hear him say, we are all on the spectrum of diabetes. Over half of America is now struggling with type one diabetes, and the most prevalent, type two and pre diabetes. Around minute 13 we get into the relevance of a ketogenic diet, and around minute 30 we discuss how the average family pursuing health is still missing it and at risk. This is info that as an individual, and as a parent, I wish I’d known long ago, but am so grateful I do now.  The Self-Help(ful) podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches to help leaders and top performers excel professionally and personally.

Jake Eagle #4 | Lessons w/ Kevin Miller - 7 Keys To Cultivate Being Present & Feeling Awe

I wrap up our series on Jake Eagle and the concept of Awe. This is part four. As I looked through my show notes on the previous three episodes, seven key issues stood out to me. The highlights of understanding awe and microdosing it into our lives throughout the day so we can benefit from what Jake’s research showed, that it will help us avoid Burnout, minimize and relieve Anxiety, Ease Chronic Pain, and help us Find Clarity & Purpose.

Jake Eagle #3 | Discussion w/ Jared Angaza - How To Live In Moments Instead Of Minutes

In this episode, we continue the discussion on Jake Eagle and the concept of AWE, and I bring on my brother, Jared Angaza, because of all the people in my life, he is one who recognizes awe. We discuss microdosing mindfulness and get deep into how we invest so much into altering our environment and circumstance, in order to alter our mental state. It would be great if we could just snap our fingers and be present, and realize a positively altered state. But most of us can’t, so we must all look at what we need to do to facilitate it. We start by discussing space and the overview effect, made famous now by William Shatner. Captain Kirk himself. He literally went into space, Jared was involved in the project, and it forever changed his view of earth and life. Most of us can’t do that, but what can we do? That’s our show.  The Self-Help(ful) podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches to help leaders and top performers excel professionally and personally.

Jake Eagle #2 | Values & Habits Q&A - What To Do When Your Values Change

In this episode I’m back with Jake Eagle, co-author of THE POWER OF AWE: Overcome Burnout & Anxiety, Ease Chronic Pain, Find Clarity & Purpose—In Less Than 1 Minute Per Day, and this is part 2 where I walk with him through his Values & Habits in the key areas of life. In truth, I veered away from my normal format here and we spent the majority of our time around two statements he sent me when we first connected. Here is what Jake wrote, “I am 67, semi-retired, and wrestling with the reality that my old values no longer fit this stage of my life. I find semi-retirement to be quite a challenge and have not yet sorted myself out. I imagine a conversation with me may be potentially unsettling and raise more questions than it answers. Also, after having been a therapist for thirty years, I’m rather skeptical about many forms of therapy, because when I look at how people are doing—overall—I don’t think the trajectory is very positive.” So I dive in right there, asking about his values that no longer fit, then what he sees is not working in traditional therapy.

Jake Eagle #1 | How To Keep Your Joy Hydrated By Microdosing Good Feelings

I start with an analogy; The going thought is an adult should drink about a half gallon of water per day. But if you drink it all at once first thing in the morning, you’ll feel bloated, you’ll pee most of it out, and if you don’t have anymore the rest of the day you’ll be completely dehydrated by evening. You need to be drinking water throughout the day to stay well and hydrated. Now think of meditating, which at the core is an attempt to be present, center yourself, and bring about positive feelings. If you do your 5 minutes or 55 minutes in the morning, and then go about the grind for the rest of the day, you’ll end up depleted. Instead, or in addition to this, new research shows the vast benefit of taking just 5 or 15 seconds here and there throughout the day, to “microdose mindfulness.” This is more than just thinking of something you’re grateful for, but to stop and focus on something positive and really feel it, whether it’s something you can actually see like a mountain or a flower, or it’s something you close your eyes to envision. My guest is Jake Eagle, who along with Michael Amster recently released their book, THE POWER OF AWE: Overcome Burnout & Anxiety, Ease Chronic Pain, Find Clarity & Purpose—In Less Than 1 Minute Per Day, where they explain the why and how of this method for a five to fifteen-second, three-step process for “micro-dosing mindfulness,” where they discovered a clinically proven way to reduce inflammation, stress, loneliness, and burnout while improving overall well-being. Just hours before our recording, Jake sent me a scientific report that published earlier that morning. But along with this focus on awe and microdosing mindfulness, I also wanted Jake on the show because this was his response to my request to have him on the show - “I am 67, semi-retired, and wrestling with the reality that my old values no longer fit this stage of my life. I find semi-retirement to be quite a challenge and have not yet sorted myself out. I imagine a conversation with me may be potentially unsettling and raise more questions than it answers. Also, after having been a therapist for thirty years, I’m rather skeptical about many forms of therapy, because when I look at how people are doing—overall—I don’t think the trajectory is very positive.” Stay tuned for a very deep and candid conversation.

How To Avoid, Manage & Mitigate Musculoskeletal Aches and Pains | Functional Friday

We’re continuing our series from the question I asked Self Helpful listeners; “If you could have a magic pill to fix one health issue for yourself, what would it be?” Kent, Kristy, and Susie cited knee issues, while Tanya and Sheamus cited back issues. As with all maladies, musculoskeletal problems are on the rise. Anyone past the age of 30 is now prone to accept the norm of bodily aches and pains when they move. Younger and younger people have left physical activities they used to enjoy due to physical limitations and inability. Should this be normal? What is causing our cultural aches and pains? And what can help alleviate them? My Functional Friday co host is Randy James, Medical Doctor and Functional Medicine expert. We give most of the show to causation and around minute 40 get into treatments. Surprisingly, your best prescription may be in regards to what you are eating.

Find Meaning In What You Do Or Don’t Do It | 3 - Discussing Jordan Grumet with Tom Ziglar

In this episode of the Self Helpful show we continue the discussion on Jordan Grumet and his book, Taking Stock: A Hospice Doctor's Advice on Financial Independence, Building Wealth, and Living a Regret-Free Life. Here I bring in Tom Ziglar to get his take on it. Tom is Zig Ziglar’s son, CEO of Ziglar, Inc, author and in demand speaker. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣We began discussing the change Jordan cites when people get an end of life diagnosis and the immediate shift he sees from their protective selves and stories and the transition to possibility and meaning. If you were told you just had months to live, you'd likely seek to repair relationships. We don't today, in having faith we have plenty of time, because we don't want to be that vulnerable. Which again, points back to how we primarily live to protect ourselves. Tom and I then get into Jordan's perspective on flattening or flipping Maslow's hierarchy of need and when we start with self-actualization, everything else becomes far easier, as we know what we want and why, which is much the focus of my book, What Drives You. This lands us on the necessity, if you want an abundant and inspired life, of finding meaning in what you do. ⁣ ⁣ The Self-Help(ful) podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches to help leaders and top performers excel professionally and personally.

Living More Authentically & Controlling How We Interpret Our Lives | 2 - Jordan Grumet Values & Habits Q&A

When we think of deathbed regrets, we generally envision ourselves as some shriveled up old person in a hospital bed with some regrets, and in truth, I don’t think we care. That’s that person's problem and doesn’t relate to my life right now and today I want to achieve great things and have great things and enjoy my life. And we miss two profound truths that matter most. One is, you could have an accident or get a diagnosis tomorrow that make the regret right here and now. And two, and more relevant, the death bed regrets are more focused on realizing the depth and fulfillment and happiness that we missed. That we ARE missing, right now. ⁣ ⁣ I’m back for round two with Jordan Grumet, talking through his Values & Habits.. Jordan was an internal medicine physician who left clinical practice to devote himself to hospice care and deep conversations about life. He covers this in his book, Taking Stock: A Hospice Doctor's Advice on Financial Independence, Building Wealth, and Living a Regret-Free Life, which was our topic in our first show together. It was in the category of the mind and mental health where Jordan ruminated on how he's altered by his end of life patients and realizing how influenced their lives were, not by true, objective realities, but by the stories they wrote around those. ⁣ ⁣ This is personal intent to have control over how he interprets his life. And also how so often his patients have significant regret that they didn't live lives more authentically. They lived for the expectations of others and cultural pressures. As for other categories, he shares how seeing people literally die right before him and sensing something significant changed right there in the room, has impacted his spiritual perspective. How many of his patients regret not taking care of themselves better has influenced his own health and wellness pursuits. How he sees money as a tool and how it hurts people when they see money as a goal in and of itself. And as of late he's thinking about taking up an old hobby of collecting baseball cards because he realizes the nostalgic feeling he has around them and is giving it more value to his own inspiration.⁣ ⁣ The Self-Help(ful) podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches to help leaders and top performers excel professionally and personally.

Autoimmune Issues & How To Combat & Avoid This Growing Malady | Functional Friday

Autoimmune disease is a condition arising from an abnormal immune response to a functioning body part. While it’s not the leading cause of death in America, it is one of the most costly of all maladies and is growing at an alarming rate.  Symptoms can be redness, heat, pain, and swelling in one or more parts of the body. Feeling tired all the time, joint pain and stiffness, muscle aches or weakness. Skin problems such as rashes, sores, and dry or scaly skin. Shortness of breath or trouble breathing. Fever that comes and goes and more. But it can manifest into Celiac’s disease, Addison's disease, and rheumatoid arthritis.  I’m with my Functional Friday co-host, Randy James, Medical Doctor and Functional Medicine expert and he shares more about what autoimmune issues are and how to go about dealing with it. For many of you this may be revealing that some of your issues may be attributed to autoimmune, and if you know you have it, you’ll find wise counsel here. At the end of the show Randy shares about his youngest son who has a significant autoimmune issue they have yet to resolve.

Comfort Food & How To Fuel Our Mindset & Performance | 4 - Lessons from Dr Will Cole w/ Kevin Miller

We all want to feel well. We want our body to feel well and not have aches and pains that bother or limit us. Then, we want to feel well mentally. We want hope and happiness and a sharp mind that can think critically, make decisions, be creative, and just be at peace.  We tend to think of what we eat only in regards to our physical wellness, and miss that what we eat is likely a primary culprit in our mental state. Why we feel anxious or doubtful and fearful. We think our mental state comes only from what we are thinking.  But consider this, have you ever had a thought or seen something that made you feel nauseous? If the thought or feeling is in your brain, in your mind, then wouldn’t it make more sense that the pain and fear or disgust…whatever the negative feeling is…gave you a headache? It ached…where it happened? Then why does the feeling manifest in your gut? In your belly? Maybe to the point of you actually throwing up? Why do you have a thought and feel butterflies in your stomach instead of up in your head?  This is my wrap up on Dr Will Cole and the message in his philosophical book on wellness, Gut Feelings: Healing the Shame-Fueled Relationship Between What You Eat and How You Feel. And I’m grappling with the misconceptions and realities of this whole gut/brain connection.  June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

How To Move From Fear Based Thinking to Opportunity Based Thinking By Considering Your Death | 1 - Jordan Grumet

Nobody wants to consider their death, but if it gave you a massive paradigm shift that catapulted your success and joy, wouldn’t you? I think you would. This is not a “live every day like your last” message, as that’s impossible. If this is your last day, you’d put off anything that wasn’t vitally important, and you just can’t do that every day, it’s not sustainable. This is different.  My guest is Jordan Grumet. Jordan was an internal medicine physician who left clinical practice to devote himself to hospice care and deep conversations about life. Jordan walks with people who are given an end of life diagnosis and watches a phenomenon happen right before his eyes. Jordan says, “We are all living versions of stories, but when a person is diagnosed with a terminal illness and death becomes a near future certainty…something remarkable happens: the self-protective stories about identity, work and money crumble, leaving them with clarity about who they are, what they love and what really matters.” He then cites they become free, as there is no reason to hold up pretense and no need to protect. Their focus shifts from fear of loss toward the possibility of what can still be gained, and people focus on true desires, generally for the first time. The tragedy is they didn’t achieve this perspective, long ago in their lives.   Which is why Jordan has taken his experience and written a book, Taking Stock: A Hospice Doctor's Advice on Financial Independence, Building Wealth, and Living a Regret-Free Life. He’s striving to help us leave our lives of self-protection and move to considering what is truly possible, now. Not when death is imminent and we have a short time to do what really matters.  June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

Heal Your Mind By Eating This Way | 3 - Discussing Dr Will Cole w/ Dr Randy James

Why do you think and feel the way you do? Regardless of the circumstances, some days you feel joyful, faithful, and hopeful, and some days you feel sad, worried, and hopeless. It can be frustrating and feel out of control. You may not feel you have any mental health crisis, you are just dealing with ebbing and flowing moods. So you look to inspiration and positive thoughts, which is great. However, what we so often miss - is looking at what we eat. ⁣ ⁣ Much of Functional Medicine looks at what we are putting in our bodies that our bodies don’t want, and what we aren’t putting in our bodies that our bodies need. Your gut isn’t just a repository for food to be digested, it is literally connected to your brain. It’s showcased when you have emotional responses and you feel it in your stomach. You really do. So think to what you are eating. If you kept a food journal, you’d very likely see a correlation between what you eat and how you feel. ⁣ ⁣ This is part 3 in my series on renowned doctor, Will Cole. He’s Pepper Pott’s doctor, for goodness sakes. I mean…Gwyneth Paltrow. Today I bring on my frequent co-host, Randy James, medical doctor and Functional Medicine expert, to discuss the concept in Will’s new book, Gut Feelings: Healing the Shame-Fueled Relationship Between What You Eat and How You Feel. ⁣ ⁣ Rest assured, this is not a soapbox on eating nothing but raw veggies and never digging into a pint, or half gallon of ice cream. But we do discuss further the connection between what we do and don’t eat, and how we feel. If you have a big day tomorrow, if you want to rock your critical thinking skills or creativity, maybe delay the ice cream or whatever, till after. As I write this, I’ve had a good, long, productive week, and I’m about to grab a burger and fries. Maybe some ice cream. And my favorite hard cider. But I’m managing my life to moderate the impact it has on me. This episode is about opportunity much more than abstinence. ⁣ ⁣ June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

The Magic Health Pill We Want | Functional Friday

For all my health and wellness advocacy, the honest admission is if I could, I’d take a pill for my ailments. I have some skin issues due to the many years and untold miles of bike riding as a pro cyclist in the sun with no sun protection. I have digestive issues that I work to manage, but are always there. I occasionally have shin splint pain from running. Instead of making the effort to cure these things naturally, I’d happily take a pill that allowed me to just go on my merry way. ⁣ ⁣ Some of you listening have far more critical and acute issues you are dealing with. Significant chronic pain and mind numbing maladies. So I asked the Self Helpful audience, “If you could have a magic pill to fix one health issue for yourself, what would it be?” I wanted to get a pulse on the primary ailments that even our relatively healthy audience is dealing with right now. ⁣ ⁣ It’s just honest that in some aspects of our life, we would all like a magic pill to alleviate a problem or give us the desire we want, as you’ll hear at the top of the show as I pose the question to Randy James, my Functional Friday co host…Medical Doctor and Functional Medicine expert. We received so many responses. We grouped some together, but they were all so relevant we are going to go ahead and run a series to address all the issues I believe affect so many of us. In this episode, we address chronic headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, and allergies.⁣ ⁣ June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

Why Your Mental State Is Sabotaging Your Fitness & How To Trust Your Gut Again | 1 - Will Cole

I just want an easy, step-by-step formula to look, feel, and perform great; Eat whole and healthy foods, exercise, and get good sleep. It should be that simple. And yet it’s not and many of you know it, as you do these things and you are not experiencing the level of health and wellness you desire.  Our mental health can sabotage our efforts, and I’m not talking anything severely acute. I am open about my own struggles with anxiety, and am more and more aware how it negatively affects me, especially my gut. You’ve likely heard about the brain/gut connection, but I find few people who really give much attention to this. How can you trust your gut, that intuitive feeling, if your gut is a boiling cauldron of a mess? And most of us have a compromised gut.  My guest today is Dr Will Cole. I became aware of Dr Cole through Gwyneth Paltrow, as he is her doctor and a primary provider in her Goop wellness and lifestyle brand and company. If you remember, I had Terry Real on the show months back, he is Gwyneth’s therapist and relationship expert, also part of the Goop company. Will has become the health and wellness resource for a lot of celebrities, I see his instagram showcasing him working with Leann Rimes and Drew Barrymore, but I’ve paid attention and he’s really got the chops and I respect his work a lot.  He has a new book that as you’ll hear, he says is unlike anything he’s ever written. It’s called Gut Feelings: Healing the Shame-Fueled Relationship Between What You Eat and How You Feel, and it gets more into the philosophy of our wellness than just clinical, prescriptive aspects. Which to me is the foundation. Your health and wellness will ultimately be a result of your own philosophy on health and wellness. Will actually coined the term, “Shameflammation”, which I encourage you to listen into. I find that shame is a reality with most men, and one they are ignorant of and prone to avoid even looking into. You’re going to hear some paradigm shifting information here on your health and wellness.   June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit. If you are looking to influence people for the better, professionally or personally, I invite you to join us. First 10 people who register and say you heard about it from me, I’m taking to dinner!

How To Speed Up Your Metabolism | Functional Friday

More than two-thirds of Americans are overweight or actually obese. My guest has coached and trained over 20,000 people and says around 75% of those people just need to get on a healthy eating and exercise routine and stick to it. But for the rest, they likely have a metabolic issue and unless corrected, the weight will not come off and stay off. ⁣ ⁣ Angelo Poli founded Metpro where he and his team specialize in this area by utilizing an algorithm based transformation engine. Angelo and Metpro work with regular folks like us, but he’s well known for working with high-profile clientele that range from Olympic Athletes, NFL MVPs, physique models, and business leaders. I had worked with Angelo and his team for quite a while so in this episode I introduced him and his research to Randy James, Medical Doctor, Functional Medicine expert and my Functional Friday co-host. ⁣ ⁣ As you’ll hear they get into the nuances of why we are having metabolic problems, how to figure out who does, and what to do about it. You’ll hear my story in this episode as well, as I’m one who had really slowed my metabolism down. For some of you who have trouble losing weight this could be revolutionary, as it was for me. You can take the info and apply it to yourself immediately, as this is not an ad for Metpro. But if you want to check them out, go to http://metpro.co/ziglar and you can take their assessment and speak with a coach on their team for no cost or commitment.⁣ ⁣ June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

Lifestyle Design & How To Orient Your World To Be At Your Best | 4 - Lessons From Andre Sólo w/ Kevin Miller

The self-help industry is guilty of telling people they are limitless and perpetuating the concept that you can do and be anything. It’s a well meaning concept to try and help people see they are capable of more, which I agree with, but the sentiment is often a great disservice. Sure, you can go do anything and everything, but you won’t do many of those things well. You are designed for some specific things. ⁣ ⁣ The great news is they will fit your innate desires and abilities. Imagine taking all the animals in Africa and dumping them on the open savannah. How will they fare? The monkeys and crocodiles and hippos and pythons and parrots will soon die. Or dump them all into the trees. How will the elephants and lions and gazelles do? You get the point. Yet we as humans are expected to just be ok in all the normal structures of our environment. It doesn’t work, and most all of us spend a lot of our days in environments and circumstances that are greatly limiting us and don’t cater to our unique makeup.⁣ ⁣ This is my wrap up on my series with Andre Sólo and the message in his book, "Sensitive: The Hidden Power of the Highly Sensitive Person in a Loud, Fast, Too-Much World." Some of you are HSPs, as I’ve realized I am. But all of you have sensitivities. All of you. And chances are you are blind to them or are just trying to grit your teeth and plow through your life. You can. But you won’t be at your best. You’ll be doing yourself a disservice. Further, you’ll be limiting the service you can bring to others. ⁣ ⁣ Walk with me a minute in looking at how to better curate and design your world for your success.⁣ ⁣ June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

How To Manage & Leverage Your Sensitive Strengths | 3 Discussing Andre Sólo with Renée Marino

We've been unpacking issues of sensitivity. I want to again highlight that the only people who do not have sensitivities are psychopaths. So if you are not a psychopath, this show is for you. You do have some sensitivities and if you are unaware and if you don't work to manage them, they will erode you, like termites. The point here is not being a victim. Not being fragile. It's about being self-aware of your unique propensities so you can manage and leverage them. ⁣ ⁣ This is part 3 on the message from Andre Sólo in his new book, "Sensitive: The Hidden Power of the Highly Sensitive Person in a Loud, Fast, Too-Much World." Andre is the force behind Sensitive Refuge (sensitiverefuge.com), the world’s largest website for sensitive people. In this show I invited Broadway and big screen star Renée Marino to join me and discuss this topic.⁣ ⁣ Because, right after posting my first episode with Andre, Renée texted me saying, “I'm Listening to your podcast about HSP... man.. this is me 100%!!!!” I had no idea. This episode is us unpacking our realizations of not just being sensitive, but in our case, tipping over into being HSPs, highly sensitive people. But again, this isn't a handicap, unless it goes unchecked. It can be a superpower if properly leveraged. Again though, you have sensitivities, and I believe you'll hear in this episode how you can better manage them to be more at peace and get more, valuable productivity out of yourself and in the areas you are more attune to in your sensitivities. ⁣ ⁣ June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

Calming Lifestyle Habits For Sensitive People | 2 Andre Sólo Q&A

In this episode I want sensitive people to hear how an HSP…highly sensitive person…curates their life to find more peace and wholeness. I was highly interested in this, as I’m new to understanding, I’m an HSP, and I’m working to reorient my life, with grace, to help me be more at peace, and from this, be more at peace with others and the world around me. ⁣ ⁣ I’m back with Andre Sólo, the force behind Sensitive Refuge, the world’s largest website for sensitive people, and the co-author of "Sensitive: The Hidden Power of the Highly Sensitive Person in a Loud, Fast, Too-Much World." Andre is an author, researcher, and speaker, and a recognized expert and passionate advocate for sensitive people.⁣ ⁣ Here we walk through his Values & Habits and as you’ll hear, most are configured to support Andre’s sensitivities. Remember from our first talk together in the May 17 episode, Sensitive does not mean fragile, or delicate. Sensitive means; quick to detect or respond to slight changes, signals, or influences. And that means externally and internally. ⁣ ⁣ Spiritually Andre finds more sensitive people crave meaning from life and may be more prone to pursuits of spirituality. Similarly, they seek out deep, meaningful relationships, and Andre attests to this for himself. And while we didn't discuss it, I'm betting more sensitive people have fewer, but deeper relationships than the norm. I'll have to ask him about that. Regarding health and wellness Andre said he doesn't live up to his own values here, but seeks out Whole Foods and practices yoga. He admits he's an emotional eater. Regarding mental health he of course guards against overstimulation. This is a big aspect I'm getting from this topic, as I've always struggled with overstimulation but just gritted my teeth and figured it's my problem. While I'm not taking the concept to opt out of everything, I am more in mind to budget how much and giving myself recovery time. This and more in the episode. ⁣ ⁣ June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

Healing Serious Gut & Digestive Problems | Functional Friday

Adi Arezzini was 23 years old and as you’ll hear, bloated, constipated, and only going to the bathroom once per week. This is critical digestive illness. She started researching the colon and herbs and from it found healing agents in tea, from which she started a business, Teami Blends which is sold online and also across the country in stores like Target. But this isn’t an ad for Teami Blends and it is of course not a stand alone magic bullet. Adi made other significant lifestyle changes which led her away from that harsh reality to more optimal health.  I’m joined by my Functional Friday co-host, Randy James, Medical Doctor and Functional Medicine expert, and we asked Adi about her personal health journey, the benefits of tea, and much more. In the latter part of the conversation I asked her and she provided, her top three list of what causes and helps alleviate digestive problems which may be the greatest benefit you get from this episode. Adi is offering us 20% off all her products at teamiblends.com when you use code TRUELIFE.  Again, this isn’t an ad, but of interest to us. Of note, Randy is a complete tea snob and buys high end, loose leaf tea…probably consuming 5 or 6 mugs a day. After a decade of friendship, I finally wanted to test reducing my coffee intake, and started trying tea. Initially I only liked black tea, but have now developed a broader pallet. I still adore coffee but find it bothers my gut a bit, so I’m only doing it once or twice a week these days…but drinking a lot of tea.

4 Keys To Getting As Much Or More Out Of Your Second Half Of Life | 4 - Lessons from Arthur Brooks w/ Kevin Miller

My hope for you in this episode of the Self Helpful podcast, is for those of you nearing midlife, or already past it, to divest yourself of frustration you have from lacking strength in some areas of life you’ve relied on, and find great hope and inspiration and start shifting to a new strength. I’m wrapping up the series with Arthur Brooks and the message in his book, From Strength to Strength: Finding Success, Happiness, and Deep Purpose in the Second Half of Life.  It was a gift to talk with Arthur, then also have a discussion on the Strength To Strength message with his colleague at Harvard, Robert Waldinger. These guys are some of the top researchers on happiness and their research is profound and paradigm shifting. In this episode I give four highlights from the three episodes that I’m pondering and focused on for my own life and discussing with my friends and peers.

Highly Sensitive People & How To Flourish In An Overwhelming World | 1 Andre Sólo

Here is my hope for this show…that a lot of you, especially those of you who like me, were unaware of your sensitivities, will find comfort and understanding in areas of your life you struggle. Introvert, extrovert, macho man, whatever you think you are. You’ll find some grace for yourself, and some equipping of how to better manage your life to find more peace and success. ⁣ ⁣ Sensitive does not mean fragile, or delicate. Sensitive means; quick to detect or respond to slight changes, signals, or influences. Think of it this way; a military fighter jet is incredibly sensitive to every nuance, detecting the slightest problem or change and alerting the pilot and ground crews. They cost from $60 to $130 million. A tank on the other hand does not require such sensitivity and only costs around $10 million. They both have different, valuable uses. ⁣ Speaking of the military, the special forces personnel are actually trained to become highly sensitive to everything. ⁣ ⁣ This is my preface to informing you that while every human is on the scale of being more or less sensitive to the outside world, and to their own inner world, about 30% of you listening will tip over into being a "highly sensitive person," thought to have an increased or deeper central nervous system sensitivity to physical, emotional, or social stimuli. And friends, the kicker here is that I...am an HSP. I have been all my life, but I've masked it, grit my teeth, and just negatively judged myself for being intolerant. I’m thrilled about this message. ⁣ ⁣ My guest to break down the walls on this issue is Andre Sólo, the force behind Sensitive Refuge (sensitiverefuge.com), the world’s largest website for sensitive people, and Andre is the co-author of "Sensitive: The Hidden Power of the Highly Sensitive Person in a Loud, Fast, Too-Much World." I really encourage everyone to listen to this message, as I think you’ll find relevance for yourself, and others in your life. ⁣ ⁣ June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

Why You Want A Great Path More Than The Final Destination | 3 - Discussing Arthur Brooks w/ Robert Waldinger

We live in a world construct based on achievements. It’s what you do that matters. What you’ve done. And we miss the daily, primary engagement of simply…what we are doing. I recently hiked four, thirteen thousand foot peaks in one day with a group of guys. I honestly don’t remember much about the peaks themselves. We’d stop, look around, grab a drink or bite to eat and adjust our packs…then move on. ⁣ ⁣ What we remember is the mountain goat that came up to us along the way. The clouds boiling up a mountain pass while we sat in a saddle of the mountain. The dip in a lake above tree line that was the coldest thing I’ve ever immersed myself in. Then tailgating at the end with food and drinks to recount it all. It was the journey we most enjoyed. Getting to the top is often a bit anticlimactic. This is what my guest brought to light in this episode when he cited that his focus in the second half of life has moved from, “I want to get to this place, to, I want to be on this path.”So simple and so profound. ⁣ ⁣ This is part 3 of my series on Arthur Brooks and his new book, From Strength to Strength: Finding Success, Happiness, and Deep Purpose in the Second Half of Life. For this discussion I brought on a co host who not only knows the message well, but is colleagues with Arthur. Arthur actually cites him in his book. ⁣ ⁣ It’s Robert Waldinger who I did a series on in January of 2023. Bob is a professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and director of the Harvard Study of Adult Development at Massachusetts General Hospital. His TED titled, “What makes a good life?” has over 43 million views and his book that culminates the project is, The Good Life: Lessons from the World's Longest Scientific Study of Happiness. I experience Bob as an incredibly insightful person, an expert in the area of happiness and fulfillment, and just a complete joy of a human. It was great to talk with him again, but the insight you’re about to hear I feel is…life changing. ⁣ ⁣ June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

How To Transcend The Onslaught of Negativity In Our Culture | Functional Friday

Without making a case that there is more negativity in our world today than ever, it’s simply more easily delivered to us through our constant devices. The media want our attention and if it bleeds it leads. Negativity gets more views. And on social media, I don’t know the exact stats, but I tend to see more sharing of and discussions around criticism and debate, than joy and peace. ⁣ ⁣ We can’t get rid of it either, all the negativity is impossible to avoid. Not long ago we went through a covid pandemic, high racial tensions, and presidential campaigns and scandals that really upped all the volatility, and just about everyone in the country, if not the planet, is citing more anxiety, uncertainty, confusion and fear than ever. We can’t live in a bubble or a cave, so we just have to learn to deal with it. ⁣ ⁣ This is my Functional Friday episode and I’m with my Functional Friday co-host, Randy James, Medical Doctor and Functional Medicine expert, and we talk about what he is seeing with patients in his clinic and how very real this issue is, and how we can minimize it...but in truth, again, the bigger issue is combating it. Interestingly what we landed on was seeking ways to lift ourselves emotionally. I think you’ll find some tangible actions you can take from this show. ⁣ ⁣ June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

Authentic Drive & How To Know What You Really Want | Lessons With Kevin

I’ve had three guests on this show recently who really have me grappling with the realities of what we as humans say and think we want, and what our behavior proves we want. What you’re about to hear may shock you and make you take a step back, as it did me. ⁣ ⁣ I usually give you the punchline of the episode right here in the beginning, but in this case I’m not going to…just hold tight a moment and I’ll unpack it. But you and I, right now, think we want to be happy, authentic, and healthy. But our actions show that in each case, we actually want something else…more. ⁣ ⁣ And it’s not the same things. For each of those three issues, there is a counterfeit desire that is winning out. And to realize it is to get at the issue of significant cognitive dissonance we live in, and are suffering from. Getting aware, I believe, can give us a new lease on life. And further, if you are in business and involved with trying to offer happiness, authenticity and health to anyone, you’re about to find out what your real competition is. Come ponder and explore with me… ⁣ ⁣ June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

Your Work & Why To Remember Your Why Over Your What | 2 - Arthur Brooks Q&A

How many times have you been asked, “So, what do you do?” Meaning, what work do you do. A primary way we establish hierarchy in our culture. But have you ever had anyone follow and ask why you do what you do? Have you asked yourself recently? And the answer must go deeper than just for the money. If there is no meaning for you in your work beyond money, then ask what that money is for? It’s supporting something you care about, even if it’s merely food and shelter.  This was brought back to my attention by Arthur Brooks who is back with me to walk and talk through his personal Values & Habits. When I asked him about his values regarding his career he spoke to his efforts to stay aware of the why of what he does as opposed to just the what. Arthur is a Harvard Professor, a columnist at The Atlantic, ridiculously in demand speaker, and author of 12 books, the most recent being the focus of my series with him, From Strength to Strength: Finding Success, Happiness, and Deep Purpose in the Second Half of Life.  You’ll find that Arthur is a very intentional person and deeply considers all areas of his life. Spiritually he seeks where he can lift the world and not just himself. In his pursuit of health I found it interesting that he cited he’s not necessarily happy to be exercising, but it helps him be less unhappy. Interesting way to look at it. Regarding money, as his stage of life he’s eager to simplify the stuff he owns, and puts his focus on binging experiences. It’s quite an interesting journey through one of our cultures leading experts on happiness.  June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

The Second & Better Half Of Life & How To Transition From Innovation To Wisdom | 1 Arthur Brooks

Many of you listening to this show are at or nearing the midpoint of life. The rest of you will be there before you know it. This show is geared to blow away a myth and massive problem we live within our culture. We churn and grind away to achieve and provide...and as we age we just try to buckle down and keep it going as long as we can, or as long as we feel we have to. ⁣ ⁣ This is a message to say..."Whoa! Stop! You've totally got it wrong! You don't want to keep doing what you've been doing. Rather you want to evolve, graduate if you will, to a new and well earned second half of life. One where you move from learning and innovating and amassing, to...leveraging all you've learned. The former leads to burnout and grave dissatisfaction, the latter to the greatest joy and fulfillment life has to offer. ⁣ ⁣ My guest, researcher and expert on this topic is Arthur Brooks. Arthur went from being a professional French horn, to earning degrees online that landed him as a think tank president amongst Ivy League scholars, which you'll hear was an embarrassment to him for a while, to today being...OK, this is long...the William Henry Bloomberg Professor of the Practice of Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School, and Professor of Management Practice at the Harvard Business School, where he teaches courses on leadership, happiness, and social entrepreneurship. He is also a columnist at The Atlantic, where he writes the popular weekly “How to Build a Life” column. ⁣ ⁣ Brooks is the author of 12 books, including the 2022 #1 New York Times bestseller From Strength to Strength: Finding Success, Happiness, and Deep Purpose in the Second Half of Life, which is my focus for this series. A recent Harvard Magazine article labeled Arthur as, "The Happiness Revolutionary." Somehow between his content and his personality Arthur has become a massively influential guy who is now called on and cited by people such as Oprah, the Dalai Lama and The White House. ⁣ You're about to hear him school us in how our first half of life is spent leveraging fluid knowledge, and that our brain is created for this. But around the midpoint of our life, our brain has less ability for fluid knowledge and transitions to great ability in crystallized knowledge. If you are aware of and embrace this, you will find great peace and continue progress instead of feeling you are in a race for time to keep up the initiatives and pace from the first half of life.⁣ ⁣ June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

How To Embrace The Athlete Inside You For Sustaining Fitness | Functional Friday

I staunchly believe perception is everything, and regarding our health and wellness and concerning the concept of exercise, there is a paradigm shift we can enact with ourselves that works wonders. The word exercise does not create positive feelings in most people. It sounds like a chore. The point is movement and we have to “exercise” because for most of us, our daily life does not require much of any utilization of our lungs and muscles and joints. But I want you to consider the term…athlete, and why you may want to strive to adopt it. ⁣ ⁣ This is our Functional Friday episode where we tend to our physical and mental capacity to support us in our desired goals and achievements. Here is my setup; If you join a painting class, you might share with others that you paint. But if you do it daily or weekly and keep it up for years and get proficient, when do you refer to yourself as an artist? You don’t have to do it for money to be an artist. The literal word artist is defined as, a person who produces paintings or drawings as a profession or hobby. There you go. If you produce paintings as a hobby, you are an artist. My home contains many pieces of furniture I made out of raw aspens on our land and when people see it, they often say, “I didn’t know you were an artist!” ⁣ ⁣⁣ So with exercise. The definition is, a person who is proficient in sports and other forms of physical exercise. I find a lot of people who engage daily in some fitness activity call themselves athletes. And I think it’s great. I was a professional athlete, as a pro cyclist. I got paid. Not much. But today I don’t have pro status or a racing license. But I ride my bike or run almost daily. I do push ups, or dips or pull ups most days. I call myself an athlete. It’s not what I do, it’s another role I’ve embraced. If you engage in a physical activity and become proficient in it…proficient, defined as competent in doing something, you can adopt the label of athlete. It’s not a chore you try to do, it’s a role you fulfill. Regarding this idea, I asked our audience on Facebook this question, “Do you think of yourself as athletic?” Over 80 comments came in that brought up some interesting issues. I truly hope it inspires you to further embrace your athletic self and from that, your long term fitness and wellness.⁣ ⁣ June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

The Medical & Financial Benefit Of Friendships | 4 Lessons from Laura Tremaine with Kevin Miller & Friends

I’m wrapping up my series on Laura Tremaine, host of the 10 Things To Tell You podcast and author of The Life Council: 10 Friends Every Woman Needs. Our focus is on friendships, but vastly elevating them from mere peripheral benefits, “if we have time.” A point I’m expounding on in this series is we don’t need friendships to survive. We need them to thrive. So if thriving is your goal, this is a vital topic. Normally on this part four episode, I briefly discuss lessons I’m learning or grappling with from the series we’ve done. ⁣ ⁣ Here, I take a detour. Instead of my solo commentary, I brought two dear friends into the studio with me to talk candidly about how we’d been doing friendships, the value we had been receiving, and…how we could do them better. Main focal points that surfaced were the need to protect and enhance friendships, just like we do our health and money. ⁣ ⁣ My friends and co-hosts are…two guys at the top of their field in just those areas, health and money. Randy James. Who you hear often as my co-host on the Functional Friday episodes. Randy is a medical doctor and functional medicine expert. People pay him out of pocket to get to the root issues of their problems and not simply prescribe a medication to a symptom. Randy and I have lived in the same town and been friends for over a decade, growing our kids together, adventuring together, and we partnered together in a business six years ago and have shared offices ever since. Some weeks we are together 5 days in a row, sharing lunch on the back deck of the office. Find him at truelifemedicine.com. ⁣ ⁣ My other dear friend featured in this episode is Patrick Johnson. Randy and I met Patrick together four or five years ago and found a kindred spirit in health and wellness, adventuring, family, and spiritually. Patrick is a personal, fiduciary financial counselor who works with very high net worth individuals. But Patrick goes way beyond that. He’s become a unicorn in his profession because he goes deep with clients into maximizing the overall wealth of their life, no different than Randy. Or me. Patrick was a professional river and mountain guide; seminarian; organic farmer, and he’s an author. He leads a large group of men in Colorado on epic adventures. You can find him at WellthPartner.com. We all spend a lot of time together. We live within a two mile radius of each other. We go on big adventures together. So coming together to discuss the topic of friendships just felt too legitimate to me. ⁣ ⁣ You’re about to hear a different start to an episode, as again, we are literally sitting side by side in my studio together, and we start off sharing a beverage together, just as we do when tailgating in the mountains after a big adventure. Props to Patrick for this tradition. He knows how to instigate inspiring environments. ⁣ ⁣ June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

Finding Purpose Amidst A Broken & Toxic Home | Drive With Ben Hardy

Friends, when I first started writing my new book, What Drives You, I sat down with some influential people to get their stories. I wanted to know what took them from, wherever they started, to realize the significant achievements that landed them on my show. ⁣ ⁣ Dr Benjamin Hardy is a favorite guest of mine, he's a prolific writer of best-selling non-fiction in the self-help space because he's a great writer, of great research. His books, Willpower Doesn't Work and Personality Isn't Permanent are foundational messages I come back to time and time again. ⁣ ⁣ Not long after I signed my book deal, I had Ben on my podcast, which was called The Ziglar Show at the time. He had shared a tidbit of personal story that grabbed my attention...so I brought him on to dig in. What he shared violated much of what I'd previously thought about drive and was a great depiction of what I'd learned and was writing in my book. ⁣ ⁣ Ultimately the story here is what I used as the lead off story in chapter one of my new book, What Drives You, which is just now coming out. Ben's story is an incredible depiction of a primary myth I bust, of some people being driven and some people not. Even some having more drive than others. It's just not true. Listen in to hear more. ⁣ ⁣ June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

How To Accumulate Valuable Relationships | 3 Discussing Laura Tremaine with Brianna Brown Keen

There are two options for gaining the valuable relationships you want and need to have a rich, fulfilling existence. Before I tell you though, there is a foundational assumption that must be met regardless, and we actually didn’t address it in this episode, so I want to cover it here. ⁣ ⁣ You must have exposure. I find many people who lack friendships also don’t get much exposure to people, and especially new people. I won’t belabor this but I’ve found the absolute number one way to achieve this is get in groups of kindred spirits. Take an interest you have and get around other people with that same interest. ⁣ ⁣ And coworkers may not fit. Working at the same place is not the same interest. Neither is family for that matter. I’m talking to literally know what you are interested in, curious about, inspired by, and find other people who are as well. After that…the two options for accumulating valuable relationships are either instigating them, or, making friends with an instigator. ⁣ ⁣ This is Part 3 of my discussion on Laura Tremaine host of the 10 Things To Tell You podcast and author of her most recent book, The Life Council: 10 Friends Every Woman Needs. My focus is on the friends everyone needs, women and men. ⁣ ⁣ To round out our discussion I invited Brianna Brown Keen on to co-host the discussion. Brianna Brown Keen is an accomplished actress, appearing in more than 20 feature films and 30 television shows. Along with being a present day, working actress, Brianna has produced an initiative and book called Manifesting Your Mission where she guides entrepreneurs, including a lot of people in show business, in making true progress toward your goals. ⁣ ⁣ Brianna is a relationship instigator, and we talk about what this looks like. But if you hear Brianna and feel you are not a fit for being an instigator, then I want you to hear your focus is to befriend…an instigator. Find a Brianna in your life, even if it’s as a paid part of a community or mastermind as Brianna leads. ⁣ ⁣ June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

Create New And Better Normals | Functional Friday

When we look back on who we were five years ago, even more so 10 years ago, we recognize ourselves as very different people today. Yet today we think who we are is really…who we are. But in five years you’ll look back to yourself, right now, and realize how much you’ve changed. ⁣ ⁣ So think to what was normal for you five or ten years ago? What was normal, that you don’t do at all now? If you are growing and evolving, things will have changed. So…how about today? What is normal to you right now, that doesn’t have to be? That for your best wellness, probably shouldn’t be? ⁣ ⁣ The power is in realizing we as people have such a hard time shifting from what is normal to us right now. What is normal is comfortable. It’s secure. To change it requires decision-making, discipline, and to a great degree it’s simply a hassle. And we live lives with little margin and a hassle, even a seemingly little hassle, feels like a big obstacle. ⁣ ⁣ This is our Functional Friday episode and I’m with Randy James, Medical Doctor and Functional Medicine expert and we discuss some of the normal maladies that have been normalized in our culture. Not because they are ok, but we’ve just made peace with them. If you want long-term wellness, this is not a good peace. But changing them for the better is not ultimately that hard, it’s just that initial shift to create a new normal, that once we do…is fairly easy. ⁣ ⁣ June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

How To Discover What Drives You | Kevin Miller

Friends, many of you have listened to this podcast for many years. You’ve listened to me dig into the stories and messages of over 200 of our world’s most profound and important influencers in the self-help space. You listened as I hosted The Ziglar Show and went from 50,000 listeners to over 300,000, then as we transitioned to the Self-Helpful show and grew to over 600,000 listeners. We’ve had over 60 million downloads and are ranked in the top 1.5% of all podcasts on the planet. ⁣ ⁣ So first…thank you. Along the way of this journey, you’ve heard some of my own story and much of my own perspective on self-help. With the size of my audience I had been approached about writing a book, but it wasn’t until a couple years ago I felt driven…to actually write one. What Drives You: How to Discover Your Unique Motivators and Accelerate Growth in Work and Life, published by McGraw Hill, releases May 10, 2023 on Amazon, and you can pre-order now. ⁣ ⁣ While it’s popular to offer bonuses and incentives to pre-order, because it helps with Amazon rankings, I’m going to refrain for now. At the end of the day, the bonus is you find something in the book that elevates your experience of…everything. Of life at large. ⁣ ⁣ In this episode I’m going to briefly tell you what the book is intended to offer you. I give big focus to two primary myths we have about drive. Then I lead you through the key areas of life, the same ones I lead every guest through, and guide you to creating healthy and strong drive in each area. A great premise to the book is the endorsement on the back cover from Jordan Harbinger, host of the Jordan Harbinger Show which often ranks in the top 50 of all podcasts in America, ⁣"Everyone is enamored with habits, but having good habits assumes you have the core motives and drive to create, implement, and sustain them. What Drives You is really the prequel to habits, as it helps you establish your why, which is what actually drives what you will and won't ever do.⁣ This book should be required reading for anyone desiring to actually improve themselves." You can go find What Drives You by me, Kevin Miller, on Amazon right now, and for insight on the book, stay tuned and I’ll give you a tutorial on what you can expect to gain from it. ⁣ ⁣ June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

Connect With Yourself To Best Connect With Others | 2 Laura Tremaine Q&A

In my experience with myself, and with others, when we seek out another human we do so like a heat-seeking missile. We seldom, if ever…stop. And ask what we are wanting from the interaction. Often it’s merely transactional. Sometimes this is ok, in the workplace especially. But even then, whenever we want the best and most from someone we will serve them and ourselves well if we connect. And we can connect best with them when we again, pause for a moment, and connect with ourselves. How are we feeling about us? How are we feeling about the person we are about to approach? What are we wanting from the interaction?  I’m back with Laura Tremaine, host of the 10 Things To Tell You podcast and author of her most recent book, The Life Council: 10 Friends Every Woman Needs. As you heard us cover in part one, friendships are, or can be, our life source. Here we continue the conversation as I walk with her through her Values, Motives, and Habits in the key areas of life fulfillment.  It’s on the topic of relationships where Laura cites she works to connect with herself before she can connect with others. We dig into that, and cover other subjects. Spiritually Laura talks about coming to Christianity, and today fully embracing Jesus, but not the religion of Christianity, which I sure can relate to.  Her health and wellness is a challenge and she shares how she came to a place and realized she’d lived her entire life from the neck up, and really has to work at caring for her body, as she cares for her mind.  Regarding mindset I asked Laura where she needs to watch out most, and she said she can tend to “Catastrophize” everything. On an interesting note, her husband Jeff is a television and film director, producer, and screenwriter and is best known for co-creating the reality stunt show Jackass with Spike Jonze and Johnny Knoxville.  June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

Friends & How To Create True Guidance & Support In Your Life | 1 Laura Tremaine

We all know relationships are ultimately what we desire most. This is where we get the most happiness and fulfillment. Yet we generally don’t make friendships a priority, and as you’re about to hear, there is a high chance you have been doing friendships…wrong. This episode is intended to give you a new perspective on how to look at friendships, and go about them, and get clear on what you are hoping to get from them. ⁣ ⁣ My guest is Laura Tremaine, host of the 10 Things To Tell You podcast and author of Share Your Stuff. I’ll Go First. Laura worked in film and television production for many years at MTV, VH1, Fox, and Paramount Pictures before pursuing writing full time. She writes primarily to women about friendship, anxiety, motherhood, and marriage. But her new book, The Life Council: 10 Friends Every Woman Needs, got my attention. ⁣ ⁣ I appreciate Laura’s focus on women, but I recognized the need for this message on Friends is relevant to everyone. To me. My primary interest that you’ll hear us dive into is how we tend to put way too much pressure on one or two friendships, like our spouse or a best friend, and a main point of Laura’s book is how our relational needs are meant to be filled by multiple friendships. ⁣ ⁣ But another significant topic we cover is what friendship is really supposed to be about. It’s not just for fun and support, but literal guidance and counsel, and few of us are allowing friendships to be this for us. ⁣ ⁣ June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

The Good & Bad Of Our Personal Health Journeys | Functional Friday

We all spend a lot of time listening to wise counsel. Getting guidance. Gleaning great information and trying to apply it to our lives. Sometimes however, what is most inspiring is simply to hear from others on the same journey we are. The good, the bad and the ugly. Which is ultimately, hopeful. ⁣ ⁣ I asked the Self-Helpful audience this question, “What area of your health do you feel good about and what area do you not?” What followed were many personal testimonies of strengths and weaknesses in everyone’s personal wellness pursuit. ⁣ ⁣ Some of the deficits and struggles cited and discussed were on the topics of hydration, weight, exercise, alcohol, and more. We also delved into more complex issues of cholesterol, biotoxin illness, chronic fatigue, mental health and the all encompassing reality that the answers for our individual health are just that…very, very individual. ⁣ ⁣ June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

8 Understandings Of The Stoic Way To Find Harmony In A World Of Chaos| Part 4 on Tanner Campbell with Kevin Miller

In our series on stoicism, I kept coming back to the aspect of control. Controlling our emotions. Controlling our reactions. Controlling our internal world so as to not be controlled by the outer world. ⁣ ⁣ It’s a valid perspective, but then I was reminded that I don’t actually want control any more than I want money. I just want what money can hopefully buy. Likewise, I just want what control can hopefully afford me. And the word that surfaced was…harmony. ⁣ ⁣ I often find myself saying I want peace, but I struggle with that sounding like I just want life to be easy and stress free, which is not the case. I want the trials and challenges that are so fulfilling to overcome. I want the hero story. But within the ups and down, I want to feel a balance and a rhythm I understand, which is what harmony is. ⁣ ⁣ A definition of harmony I greatly appreciate is, an interweaving of different accounts into a single narrative. Our daily life in this world is made up of different accounts of so many things. The stoic way of life is a life devoted to a commitment to a single narrative amongst all those accounts. ⁣ ⁣ But don’t get caught up in the word stoic. It is an example of a clarified and committed mindset and way of life. You don’t have to give it a name, but to find success you will want to decide upon your own way of life and have it clearly defined. ⁣ ⁣ June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit, alongside Tom Ziglar.

The Value of Virtue & Why To Decide On A Chosen Way Of Life | Tanner Campbell Part 3 with Tom Ziglar

What’s the difference between a hero and a villain? Virtue. Which is defined as, “Behavior showing high moral standards.” Having a purpose for good as opposed to evil, or even just others as opposed to self alone. We love the character who is resolute upon doing the right thing and seeing it through no matter what. ⁣ ⁣ We spend billions of dollars on superhero stories that depict this. People didn’t tear up at the end of The Avengers: Endgame when Ironman dies just because a battle is won. It’s because it was a battle for good. ⁣ ⁣ We’ve been studying stoicism which is based on virtue, and from this, a decided way of life. In truth it’s the rare individual who actually outlines and commits to a clarified way of life. I feel most people want to be good, and at heart, they are. But without intention we go about our days being swayed by the culture and circumstances. ⁣ ⁣ This is part three of my series on Tanner Campbell and his rapidly growing podcast, Practical Stoicism. People are flocking to it and I believe this is why; they are longing for meaning, purpose, and to know what they are about. Stoicism is just that, knowing what you are about. ⁣ ⁣ I invited Tom Ziglar to discuss this with me. Tom is son of Zig Ziglar, CEO of Ziglar Inc., and renowned author, speaker and coach. And my dear friend. The Ziglar way is just that, a decided way of life. One of virtue, honor, trust, and faith. ⁣ ⁣ Right at the beginning Tom quips that after hearing my initial talk with Tanner, he now feels, “He’s a stoic and he didn’t know it.” We talk about living out virtue, faith, religion, self-control, and integrity. Tom also discusses five aspects of trust, which we both believe is our greatest asset. ⁣ The Self-Help(ful) podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches to help leaders and top performers excel professionally and personally.

How To Build Character The Stoic Way | Tanner Campbell Part 2

Each of us is waking up every day and engaging in a “way of life.” It’s either one we’ve chosen, or one we’ve allowed ourselves to fall into. Though in truth, none of us ever lives a perfect day, so we are all then on the spectrum of living how we intentionally want and living at the mercy of our appetites and ignorance. The more aware, decided, and convicted we are to a way of life we uphold and are dedicated to, the more we will fall on the healthier side of the spectrum. ⁣ ⁣ As Tanner Campbell and I discussed at the outset of our initial talk together in episode 1143, stoicism can be said to be a state of mind, but in this episode as we are discussing Tanner’s personal efforts to live a stoic life, we unwrap the pursuit of an aspiring way of life. This is my values, motives and habits episode, part 2 of this series on Tanner Campbell and stoicism. ⁣ ⁣ Tanner Campbell is an American philosopher of Stoicism whose goal is to clear up contemporary miscommunications about Stoicism, with a focus to uphold what virtue is. He shares this daily in his Practical Stoicism podcast which has quickly catapulted to the top podcast rankings. Here Tanner talks through his pursuit of Hierocles concept of “circles of concern” which radiates outward, from family to friends, community, non-human animals, and the environment. ⁣ ⁣ In Tanner’s desire for personal awareness his mantra is asking, “What does this action or thought say about my character,” and “Who can I walk alongside and be helpful to in a meaningful way?” In discussing health and wellness, Tanner cites this area is not his strong suit, but his motive is in asking himself, “If I don’t care about my health, what does it say about my character?” This and more coming up. ⁣ ⁣ The Self-Help(ful) podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches to help leaders and top performers excel professionally and personally. ⁣ ⁣ June 15-16 of 2023 I’ll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit.

How To Vacation | Functional Friday

Ah. The vacation. Or a holiday, depending on where you’re from. It’s supposed to be a term that makes us all smile and feel warm, nostalgic, and hopeful. However, many of you will feel a bit, or a lot, of anxiety at hearing the term. And rightly so. ⁣ ⁣ Vacation has been part of life for a long time to give us a rest from the toil of everyday life. Even if you love your work it is beneficial to get away to rest and recreate. But a listener wrote in recently asking for ideas, as he recently got back from vacation and felt he wasted it. Many of us struggle with needing a vacation from our vacations because they were exciting, but exhausting. ⁣ ⁣ This is my Functional Friday episode and I’m with Randy James, medical doctor and functional medicine expert, and he and I ultimately zeroed in on three different types of vacations that all have benefits, but the value is in understanding what you are getting into and what to expect, and thus what you can do to prepare and get the most out of your vacations, so you do in fact, look forward to and benefit from them. ⁣ Get free chicken nuggets for a Year and 10% off your first box when you sign up today at butcherbox.com/SELFHELPFUL and use code SELFHELPFUL.

7 Ways To Get The Most Out Of Your Enneagram | Ian Cron Part 4 with Kevin Miller

There are many personality profiles you can use. Knowing your type does not by proxy…help you. You need to know how to utilize it. This is part 4 of our series on Ian Morgan Cron and his insight and guidance into the Enneagram personality assessment.  In this episode, I’m going to cover 7 aspects of our discussion that have really stuck out to me and seem to be resonating with other listeners. I want to quote something I read this morning by dandapani in his book, “The Power Of Unwavering Focus”, which I’m studying in preparation for having him on the show tomorrow, he cited a mentor of his, Michael Lutzenkirchen, who said, “While I appear as a teacher to you, I'm a student of the subject. And I hope it always stays that way.”  I greatly appreciate this, and in truth, I feel the best teachers are those who are, and understand they are, still students. Always students. It’s from this the greatest teaching comes. I of course recommend Ian Cron’s books. His recent book is The Story Of You and was the impetus for this series. His initial book is called “The Road Back To You” and seven years after initial publication the book is still in the top 1,000 rankings in Amazon. That is rock star status.  You can read the books and get a great understanding of what Enneagram number you are. Or…go take the assessment. Ian has it at  typologyinstitute.com, just click on iEQ9 at the top of the page. And you can use the discount code SELFHELP to receive 20% off a monthly or annual subscription which provides access to all 3 of his courses on how to harness the Enneagram.  The Self-Help(ful) podcast is brought to you by Ziglar.

Stoicism - Self-Awareness & Not Letting External Forces Control Your Reality | Tanner Campbell Part 1

What is reality? Is there a reality? We would say a tree falling on your house, or inheriting twenty million dollars are objective realities. They actually did happen. Those would be facts. But it’s our perception and interpretation of them that matter. That becomes our reality. Are those events good or bad? Why did they happen? ⁣ ⁣ Stoicism is interested in our impression and assent, which I paraphrase to say our interpretation and ensuing belief. Then Stoicism would ask what our role and responsibility are. The topic and concept of stoicism has gained popularity as of late but I haven’t given it a focus here on the show. Now…we hit it. Or to be fair, we hit one tangent of it. There are others and I’ll be looking to have more discussion around the topic in coming episodes. ⁣ ⁣ For this series, I’ve brought on Tanner Campbell. Tanner is an American philosopher of Stoicism whose goal is to clear up contemporary miscommunications about Stoicism, with a focus to uphold what virtue is, against some traditional interpretations of Stoicism, and as Tanner says, “Challenge the watered down Silicon Valley take.” ⁣ ⁣ Of relevance, it was only 15 months ago when Tanner launched his podcast, called, Practical Stoicism. The show has “gone viral” as they say, and has already eclipsed 500,000 downloads per month and is growing rapidly. Which is to say the show has done in 15 months what it took me many, many years to achieve. At this rate it will likely become the top one or two podcasts on stoicism on planet Earth in the next year. ⁣ ⁣ A note, stoicism, like AA, has a primary spiritual component to it. I wasn’t shy in pressing in on this with Tanner. Not to advocate it, as it doesn’t line up with my personal faith either, but to do an honest unpacking of it. You are free to adopt what feels useful to you. The core principals of stoicism I feel we would all do well to engage with, and that’s the focus of our show. ⁣ ⁣ The Self-Help(ful) podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches to help leaders and top performers excel professionally and personally.

Discover Your Real Yet Expertly Fluid Personality Style | Ian Cron Part 3 with Jared Angaza

𝗗𝗶𝘀𝗰𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗿 𝗬𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗥𝗲𝗮𝗹 𝗬𝗲𝘁 𝗘𝘅𝗽𝗲𝗿𝘁𝗹𝘆 𝗙𝗹𝘂𝗶𝗱 𝗣𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹𝗶𝘁𝘆 𝗦𝘁𝘆𝗹𝗲 | 𝗜𝗮𝗻 𝗖𝗿𝗼𝗻 𝗣𝗮𝗿𝘁 𝟯 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗝𝗮𝗿𝗲𝗱 𝗔𝗻𝗴𝗮𝘇𝗮⁣ ⁣ We all want to know who and what we are. We want to understand ourselves so we can understand this world we live in. Our tendency is to label ourselves as this personality style or that personality style, just as we seek out genetic testing to know where we came from. We want clarity. ⁣ ⁣ We’ve been talking about the Enneagram after having expert Ian Morgan Cron on the show and discussing his book, The Story of You: An Enneagram Journey to Becoming Your True Self. This is part three where I bring on a co-host who has experience in the topic, and I invited Jared Angaza on the show. ⁣ ⁣ Most of you have heard Jared on here before and every time I have him on I get feedback on how people are touched by his heart and insight. Jared is the brand architect behind many influencers and as of late, many of the leading space industry organizations like Space for Humanity. And he’s now partner here with me on the Self-Helpful podcast. ⁣ ⁣ He’s also…my brother. Full blood brother, the last name is different because…he changed it. He did so to adopt an identity he wanted to embrace, which is much the reason for this episode. Becoming aware of, understanding, and harnessing the beauty of your personality in order to, as the slogan of this show says, elevate your personal experience of life, and the way you show up for others. A slogan Jared wrote, by the way. ⁣ ⁣ In here we get into the Enneagram and Jared shares how we can be our authentic selves, and in this case, know our primary Enneagram type, and also understand how to fluidly flow into other types, as in essence, all the types live within us, even as we have a type or two that are our natural design. Listen in and you’ll find inspiration in knowing who and how you are and how to wield your authentic self in broader and deeper ways. ⁣ ⁣ The Self-Help(ful) podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches to help leaders and top performers excel professionally and personally.

How To Get Actual Recharging Sleep | Functional Friday

We want our sleep to be like plugging our phone in overnight. You plug it in when the battery is low and wake to find it fully charged, energy-filled and ready for a quality day. ⁣ ⁣ Don’t you want to be the same? Go to bed and wake up fully charged? But is that happening for you? Do you ever sleep through the night only to wake unrested and not...fully charged? ⁣ ⁣ There is a lot of content out about sleep, but I hear most of it focused on actually getting to sleep, staying asleep, and getting enough sleep. But we find people going to sleep fairly quickly, getting 8 hours of sleep, but waking up…tired. ⁣ ⁣ And they fight exhaustion during the day. Other symptoms are anxiety, depression, and hopelessness. Struggles with making decisions, critical and creative thinking . ⁣ ⁣ The question is...how is your sleep? Is it actually recharging you?

What Is Self-Help & How To Step Up To Benefit From It | Kevin Miller

As this Self-Helpful podcast grows and as I continually read, review and critique the latest and greatest knowledge being shared about self-help, I’m frequently exposed to misconceptions around what self-help is, and isn’t. ⁣ ⁣ I admit my own constructive criticism of the category, yet and surprised by often incredibly wise people who sometimes give unconstructive criticism to the concept of self-help. I find myself wanting to ask them, if self-help is not the foundation of our personal evolution, then whose help is? ⁣ ⁣ Who else is responsible for helping us as adults? While achieving the best and fullness of what life has to offer will only come from us getting guidance from others, it requires us to step up for the getting.

Fractured Lives vs Finding Alignment & Continuity | Ian Morgan Cron Part 2

Today, very few if any of us will have one job. One thing we do from young adulthood till the end of our lives. Which is fine. ⁣ ⁣ The marketplace today is full of opportunity to try our hand at many different endeavors. While we can do many different things to earn a buck, long-term vocational fulfillment will come from working in roles and doing tasks that fit our skills, and more so, our values. ⁣ ⁣ When we are self-aware and know our values we not only can find work and pursuits that fit and fulfill us, as our guest shares, we will often fall into them and they, in essence, find us. ⁣ ⁣ Ian Morgan Cron has been an author, speaker, consultant, coach, therapist, spiritual director and even award-winning songwriter. But all along the way he found he was doing the same thing amongst all these careers. He had the same motivation. He wanted to help people enter into a deeper conversation with the mystery of who they are and with the meaning of their lives.⁣ ⁣ This is part two with Ian where I walk through the Values, Motives, and Habits of his life, and this was the conversation around his work and career that was entirely relevant to our previous discuss on the Enneagram, the personality tool he is an expert in and advocate of. ⁣ ⁣ In this talk we cover his time as an Episcopal priest. He goes to AA meetings five times per week. He loves rigorous, hot yoga sessions. He talks about the first half of life being about addition and the second part being about subtraction, as while he can afford whatever he wants he is selling off his large home, cars, and more to simplify. He'd rather spend time getting himself into environments where he will bump into God. ⁣ ⁣ Find Ian’s book, The Story of You: An Enneagram Journey to Becoming Your True Self and you can visit his website, typologyinstitute.com and take the Enneagram test and find his online courses.

Your Made-Up Story & A Test To Discover Your Real Story | Ian Morgan Cron Part 1

We were all kids living in a life we didn’t choose, for better or worse. To make sense of it, our minds crafted a story. It’s impossible for it to be a perfectly reasonable story. It has flaws and fractures in it that are hurting our progress, achievement, peace, and fulfillment today, to some degree.  How do you become aware and course correct? Whether you’ve heard of the Enneagram or not, this is going to be a new perspective. At face value, it’s a personality profile, but we’re going to take you on an eye-opening and really hope-filled journey.  My guest is Ian Morgan Cron. Ian is a bestselling author, psychotherapist, Enneagram teacher, Episcopal priest, and the host of the popular podcast "Typology," which has over 20 million downloads.  His books include the Enneagram primer The Road Back to You: An Enneagram Journey to Self-Discovery, which has sold over 1 million copies.  Not long ago I had renowned author and influencer Michael Hyatt on the show, for the fourth time, and after our three-hour conversation he said, “You’ve got to have Ian Cron on the show.” I didn’t need more than that, but then I got into Ian’s new book, The Story of You: An Enneagram Journey to Becoming Your True Self, and I agreed.  Ian takes us through the Enneagram’s nine personality types and brilliantly showcases our propensities and especially where we tend to fall when we are unaware of ourselves. Many, if not most of you, will want to take the Enneagram as you hear this conversation. And if you’ve taken it before, you’ll likely want to do it again.  You can go to Ian’s website, typologyinstitute.com and take the test and find his online courses.

How To Have More Energy | Functional Friday

Low energy is an ongoing national pandemic. Not many years ago coffee was a little pick me up for the mornings that people enjoyed. Now there isn’t a checkout counter in America that doesn’t offer some type of energy drink.  The “energy drink” industry that didn’t exist in the recent past was estimated at $86.35 billion in 2021, $91.94 billion in 2022 and is forecasted at $177.5 billion in 2030. Billions off our increased lack of energy.  What is happening to us? Our voracious appetite for any resource claiming to give us more energy but it’s generally like tying helium balloons to a sinking ship. The problem is the sinking ship. How can we get it riding high on the water on its own?  Energy is simply a symptom of a deeper issue and there is no one way to increase consistent energy. But there is much you can address to help yourself. In this episode I’m joined by my Functional Friday co-host, Randy James, medical doctor and Functional Medicine expert, to discuss some of the key issues that zap our energy and the primary initiatives you can take to give you more energy. Not in the moment, but long term, every day.  The Self-Help(ful) podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches to help leaders and top performers excel professionally and personally.

5 Keys To Becoming The Authentic You | Vienna Pharaon Part 4 with Kevin Miller

Understanding and becoming our authentic selves may be our greatest life quest. And I’d pose that it is just that, a lifelong quest. To expect less is to minimize and miss it.  Honestly friends, it’s not something I really gave gravity and focus to till…recent years. I’ve been pursuing personal performance most of my life, but I missed personal understanding and awareness. I see a lot of high performers who this is the case for.  And it catches up to you, unless you want to settle for achievements only and miss true peace and fulfillment. I don’t want to settle, which is a big reason why I’m here, studying the best of the best in self-help and bringing my findings to you so we can learn and grow together.  This aspect of authenticity was brought to me by Vienna Pharaon, renowned NY therapist and author of The Origins of You. She has been my muse and this is part four and my wrap-up of the series. It’s left me with five key takeaways that I’ll be grappling with and striving to apply to my own life.  The Self-Help(ful) podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches to help leaders and top performers excel professionally and personally.

Find Your True Self On The Other Side Of Resolution | Vienna Pharaon Part 3 with Renee

We’ve been talking about authenticity. The authentic you. Who and where is it? First off, it’s not a totally unfiltered you. It’s not just a raw you. It’s a you who has become self-aware and at peace by resolving your hurts, wounds, angers and voids.  And in that, it’s a journey to becoming authentic, to the greatest degree you can. Our muse is Vienna Pharaon, who I’ve been talking with. Vienna is a licensed marriage and family therapist and one of New York City’s most sought after relationship therapists. Her new book is called, The Origins of You: How Breaking Family Patterns Can Liberate the Way We Live and Love. Vienna has nearly 700k followers tuning in on Instagram at her @mindfulmft account to get help discovering and becoming their authentic selves.  This is part 3 where I bring a peer on to co-host with me. Someone who has experience in this topic. I chose Broadway and film star Renée Marino. I brought Renée on the show a few months ago to talk about her book, “Becoming A Master Communicator,” and we just hit it off.  This is the second time I’ve asked her to co-host with me because it’s a topic she is close to. As you’ll hear in a moment, when hardship hit Renée’s life she realized she was repeating negative patterns and she started therapy with a counselor on “inner child work.”  And right there. If the phrase, “inner child work” rubs you wrong in any way, I feel you. At face value I have no desire to waste my time looking backward and trying to uncover feelings from my past. I struggle to even remember how I felt as a kid.  But please listen, the point is to figure out how you may have reacted unhealthfully to events in your early years, and brought them forward into your adult life. And…you did. So did I.  This is an audit. If you’ve ever bought a used car in recent years, you’ve likely gotten a CarFax so you can know the history of the car. How it’s been maintained, any wrecks or recalls, how many owners and more.  What occurs to me as I continue looking into the origins of me, is how unaware I’ve been about some wrecks along the way that have not been resolved and are impeding my progress.  The Self-Help(ful) podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches to help leaders and top performers excel professionally and personally.

How To De-role From Your Daily Roles | Vienna Pharaon Part 2

Even if we are being authentic, we often put on different faces for the roles we have in life. I’d like to think I’m the same guy all the time, but how I interact with my 10 year old daughter is different from how I interact with a podcast guest. I’m still me, but I have different expectations and engage from different orientations based on who I’m in front of. Sometimes we can struggle to switch gears.  This is my part two session, Values, Motives, and Habits with Vienna Pharaon, licensed marriage and family therapist, one of New York City’s most sought after relationship therapists, and now author of her first book, The Origins of You: How Breaking Family Patterns Can Liberate the Way We Live and Love. Vienna has nearly 700k followers tuning in on Instagram to find their authentic selves.  It is in the beginning topic of Spirituality where Vienna discusses her efforts to “de-role” in her life, a concept I’ve not heard defined quite like this before.  You’re also going to hear a special insert in this episode, as at the end of the show, Vienna asked to share something else that greatly altered her spiritual life. The death of her dog and holding him as he took his last breath. She shares how it shifted her relationship with death and made it less scary. I was really honored Vienna was moved to share this.  Honestly her candor and relatability touched me as well. She really engaged in our conversation much more like a patient than a counselor and I felt I was just talking with a friend. I’d say this is why she has such a massive following of people who feel the same.  Other highlights you’ll hear, regarding Relationships, Vienna works to accept limitations and strengths in her relationships. With Health & Wellness she says for her, “Movement is salve.” Mind & Mental Health are her profession and she shares she learned to like alone time because she was a single child, yet also shares she’s an introvert and I press in as to which she gives more credit to regarding wanting alone time…it’s a bit of nature vs nurture discussion.  With Work/Career Vienna said she loves being in meaningful conversations with people, and with Money & Finances she shares how her relationship with money has changed throughout her life and makes a quip that I found really interesting and asked her to explain, when she said, “Wounds and gifts are neighbors.” The Self-Help(ful) podcast is brought to you by Ziglar, your premier source for equipping coaches to help leaders and top performers excel professionally and personally.

How To Truly Rest & Fully Recharge Your Mind | Functional Friday with Ariel Garten

We are at an all-time high of mental health being a mainstream topic. My experience is people are either fairly tuned in to it, or they just don’t have much thought towards it. Similar to spirituality. And in neglecting to audit and tend to our individual mental health we are missing out on key aspects of our performance. I know I have and it’s a constant challenge to make it a priority. Culturally we stay very busy and have very little margin and downtime, if any, in our day to day lives. We think getting a brain-break with entertainment or exercise or sleep is enough. But we’re seeing that this is more like being on a long road trip and stopping for 5-10 minutes at a rest area. It’s a little break for the engine, but not hardly enough for it to cool down. What most of us need is a daily tune-up. Not just to let the engine cool off, but to get fresh fluids, check for leaks and make sure the tires are rotated and balanced. This is what meditation offers. And let me start by admitting this is possibly my least favorite health and wellness effort. I’d honestly rather fast from food. So we’ve brought in a guest. Ariel Garten. Ariel is a neuroscientist, innovator, and entrepreneur on a mission to help people understand how the mind works and empower them to live their best lives through meditation. She is the co-founder and visionary of a highly successful tech start-up called Muse, which tracks your brain during meditation to give you real-time feedback, guiding you into true rest and letting you know when you are actively allowing your mind to recover. Muse is a multi-sensor meditation device, a headband, that syncs with an app on your phone and provides real-time feedback on your brain activity, heart rate, breathing, and body movements to help you build a consistent meditation practice. I use the “desert” mode and as I try to rest, it tells me how I’m doing by the level of the wind. As I slow down and settle my mind I hear the tell tale birds chirping. The app monitors my progress day to day so I can see my accumulative results and progress. It’s really ingenious and takes the guesswork out of wondering if you really have your mind at rest. This episode is about the benefits of resting your mind and being present, not the Muse app and technology, though you can check it out at choosemuse.com.

5 Ways To Grow & Benefit From Our Setbacks | Dr Neeta Bhushan Part 4 with Kevin Miller

You know this quote, “It's not how many times you get knocked down that counts, it's how many times you get back up.” The quote is attributed both to legendary army officer George Custer and legendary football coach Vince Lombardy. As I said in a previous episode in this series, I get this concept if you’re in the middle of a battle or football game. But otherwise, I feel it’s fairly misleading and has us all missing out on available growth from our challenges. If you are alive, you will encounter something you desired to achieve, not working out, or something negative you didn’t choose, happening to you. And there you are. How you deal with it has to do with your ultimate life success and achievement, and your general well-being…right down to your health and wellness. Just “getting back up again” or persevering may or may not positively serve you any more than being overcome and defeated. This is my wrap-up on the message and discussions with Dr Neeta Bhushan and the message in her new book, That Sucked. Now What?: How to Embrace the Joy in Chaos and Find Magic in the Mess. It brought me to grappling with how we as a society tend to polarize and view someone as an overcomer or a quitter. Like it’s simply two ends of a rope instead of a multifaceted spectrum with a lot of nuances. Walk with me a moment through some aspects I’m pondering and seeking to apply to my life.
