Hit or miss- please get trauma informed

There are some quickies that I just love! Lori can be inspiring and relatable but the most recent quickie I listened to “what’s missing in your life” was so irresponsible. Please stick to general motivational speaking instead of going into trauma and telling people to “not think about” their trauma. That’s seriously unhealthy. There are many trauma informed resources out there- I suggest that you supplement this podcast with those.

Show Notes

I am so beyond grateful for today’s guest, Dr. Joe Dispenza. His books and teachings were at the very beginning of my journey and completely shifted everything for me. I believe there are moments in life that impact you so deeply and you’re never the same. In this episode, I talk about that moment and how everything I looked at changed forever. 

As an international lecturer, researcher, author and educator, Dr. Joe believes that each of us has the potential for greatness and unlimited abilities. This is why his passion has led him to educate thousands of people on how they can rewire their brains and recondition their bodies to make lasting changes. I can tell you firsthand that this is what he did for me. I truly believe his teachings were the beginning of rewiring the way I think. With a passion for neuroscience, epigenetics and quantum physics to explore the science behind spontaneous remissions and evolved consciousness. You will be blown away by Dr. Joe’s miraculous stories! 

So please, get comfortable and listen to every single word of our incredible conversation and if this hooks you, I encourage you to go grab one of his books and read it!

Question Highlights:

  • Did you always have this mind-body connection or do you feeling like it got awakened after your accident?
  • What advice do you give people who are in an environment that isn’t helpful for where they want to go?
  • How do you not take things personally or navigate that world of reflection?
  • Can you paint a picture of what it looks like when a person knows what to do but can’t quite visualize it?
  • What’s the connection between moving your body and getting into a new environment and accelerating that change?
  • Can you tell me about your events?

Quotes

"It’s so much easier to forget our vision than it is to remember it.”

“We’re innately wired to be creators.”

“The power that made the body heals the body.”

“Your personality creates your personal reality.” 

“If you’re not being defined by a vision of the future, then all you’re left with are memories of the past.” 

“Wisdom is the memory without the emotional charge.”

“The unknown has never let me down.” 

“My definition of the creative moment is when I forget myself.”

Joe Dispenza, D.C. is an international lecturer, researcher, corporate consultant, author, and educator who has been invited to speak in more than 32 countries on five continents. As a lecturer and educator, he is driven by the conviction that each of us has the potential for greatness and unlimited abilities. In his easy-to-understand, encouraging, and compassionate style, he has educated thousands of people, detailing how they can rewire their brains and recondition their bodies to make lasting changes.

In addition to offering a variety of online courses and teleclasses, he has personally taught three-day progressive workshops and five-day advanced workshops in the U.S. and abroad. Starting in 2018, his workshops will become week-long offerings, and the content of the progressive and advanced workshops will be available online. (To learn more, please visit the events section at: www.drjoedispenza.com.)

He’s also an invited chair of the research committee at Life University in Atlanta, Georgia.

As a researcher, Dr. Joe’s passion can be found at the intersection of the latest findings from the fields of neuroscience, epigenetics, and quantum physics to explore the science behind spontaneous remissions. He uses that knowledge to help people heal themselves of illnesses, chronic conditions, and even terminal diseases so they can enjoy a more fulfilled and happy life, as well as evolve their consciousness.

As a NY Times best-selling author, Dr. Joe has written You Are the Placebo: Making Your Mind Matter (Hay House, 2014), which explores our ability to heal without drugs or surgery, but rather by thought alone. He has also written Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself: How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One (Hay House, 2012) and Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind (2007), both of which detail the neuroscience of change and epigenetics. Becoming Supernatural is Dr. Joe’s fourth book. His film appearances include HEAL (2017); E-Motion (2014); Sacred Journey of the Heart (2012); People v. the State of Illusion (2011); What IF – The Movie (2010); Unleashing Creativity (2009); and What the #$*!

Jen Sincero is a New York Times bestselling author, success coach, and motivational cattle prod who has helped countless people transform their personal and professional lives via her seminars, public appearances, newsletters, products and books. In 2011, she gave up her home in California to travel the planet indefinitely, encouraging as many people as possible “to live lives of unbridled awesomeness.” She is currently staying in New Mexico. Starting out as a freelance writer and “broke as joke” as she called it, she knew there was so much more for her to be doing on this earth and so much more money to be making, on this earth.

“After decades of struggling and getting jobs here and there, I finally focused my energy on making money because it just wasn't happening for me.”

It’s never too late to learn lessons, and Jen finally learned that actually focusing on a goal and taking the necessary steps towards it, is the only way to achieve higher accomplishments.

Deciding to dive into self-help, money making and coaching books, she devoted her time to understanding how it all can work for you, as long as your energy and effort is 100%.

“That's how my book You Are a Badass happened. It was first me getting my act together and then teaching people how to get their act together.”

She teaches us how to put off the opinions and judgements of others, no matter what. Getting uncomfortable with your situation is the #1 way to make things happen!

“If you aren't ready to get uncomfortable, it’s not going to happen.”

Our belief system can by our best friend or our worst night-mare. What we believe, is how we feel and how we feel then translates to how we act.

“I had to change my thoughts about money and greed. I also how to change my beliefs about what people my think of me, especially my family.”

Unsure on where to even begin, to find your inner badass? Becoming really clear with yourself and your personal goals is the easiest yet BIGGEST first step you can take. It’s about the willingness to be able to step away from the old “norm,” to create yourself one BADASS life.

In This Episode You Will Learn About:
  • Focusing energy
  • Determination
  • Self help
  • Coaching
  • Feeling uncomfortable
  • Your INNER BADASS

197: How to FREE YOURSELF from JUDGMENT with Gabby Bernstein

Podcast cover
Read more

One of my favorite (and most frequent) guests, Gabby Bernstein is back, and I know you’re all just as thrilled as I am. We even joked that she should be a co-host (you never know, right?). Today we’re talking about judgment, and I personally couldn’t agree more with the importance of talking about this topic. Judgment is the root of so many problems and whether we’re judging others or ourselves, it’s so bad that we barely realize we’re doing it.

Believing that deep down we are all loving, kind and compassionate people, Gabby felt called to write her newest book, Judgment Detox, in an effort to explain how judgment separates us from our true nature and instead makes us feel guilty, which in turn makes us judge more, which again makes us feel guilty and so on – the judgment cycle.

Fortunately, she has a six-step process that is virtually guaranteed to help us all out and it could not come at a better time for the entire world. Don’t miss out on this enlightening episode as she gives us a few sneak peeks of the wisdom in her latest book as well as a look into her creative process, asking for help and her hopes for a baby in 2018. I can’t wait for you to hear (and share) this beautiful conversation with others!

--   

Questions Asked in This Episode:

  • Can you share why you wrote Judgment Detox and what it is?
  • Was judgment something that kept coming up for you so much that you wrote the book?
  • When there’s an addiction to something, what do you think it’s serving and how do we interrupt the pattern?
  • What creative process do you use that honors the messages you write about?
  • How do you set up each of your writing sessions, and what rituals do you do beforehand?
  • How did you discover your writing strengths and weaknesses?
  • What’s one of the biggest boundaries you’ve had to set up or reinforce?
  • What does your self-talk look like when you walk away from stress?
  • Have you missed out on anything from implementing this boundary?
  • How do you enjoy the process when there are so many new opportunities coming your way?
  • What advice would you give someone who's ready to step out into their goals and dreams, but has fear around putting themselves out there?
  • What has been one of the biggest things you’ve implemented in 2017 that has helped you the most?
  • What is the best advice you feel you’ve ever gotten?
  • What is your biggest hope for Judgment Detox?

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Why Gabby wrote Judgment Detox
  • How the book is designed to help change your beliefs that hold you back with her six-step process
  • Why judgment is the root cause of all of our problems
  • Gabby’s definition of the “judgment cycle”
  • What Gabby’s healing with her Judgment Detox process and what she’s still working on
  • The wounds that lie beneath judgment
  • The Emotion Freedom Technique (tapping)
  • How Gabby writes to heal
  • The importance of finding what makes you feel safe
  • Making it a priority to hire help sooner than later
  • Hiring people for their energy, not necessarily their experience
  • The timing of pregnancy and babies
  • And so much more…

Quotes:

“Judgment is such a huge separation from our spiritual connection and our alignment to a higher power.”

“When we judge we separate from love.”

“Witness your judgment without judgment.”

“I don’t believe in my judgment anymore.”

“I’m choosing to be happy rather than right.”

“Ask for what you want in 2018.”

“The more creative I am, the less space there is for judgment.”

“Change the way you look at things.”

  • How confidence is formed through taking action
  • How confidence is at odds with people pleasing 
  • How confidence goes against our survival instincts

Today’s episode is all about confidence. When you move forward with the attitude of “I am that bitch”, it doesn't mean that you're full of yourself, it doesn't mean that you don’t like other people or that you think you're better than someone, it means that you realize that you are literally made of God energy, you are made of what the universe is made of and you cannot die with the thing you’re meant to do trapped inside of you. I hope today’s quickie serves as a reminder or way for you to be able to get back to the heart-centered reason of WHY you’re working on your dreams.

205: How Science Can Help You Learn to Eat Intuitively with Kelly Leveque

Podcast cover
Read more

My guest, health nutritionist and author, Kelly LeVeque and I have been circling each other for quite a while, which makes me so ecstatic that we were finally able to connect. With an early interest in health (it was her favorite class in high school), she went to college and after worked eight years in the cancer and genetics field. During this time, however, Kelly still felt pulled to help others with their nutrition and did so as she was able. It wasn’t until a friend finally told her “enough already,” that she went back to college for nutritional coaching and has been seeing clients full time since 2015.

Kelly truly loves the science behind nutrition and uses the power of it to motivate her clients and elevate their nutrition choices. She admits that she doesn’t believe in eliminating food groups, but does stress the importance of finding the right balance for YOUR body (hint blood sugar plays a big role). We talk about several aspects of this philosophy and you can find even more of them in her new book, Body Love. I related with so much of this conversation and suspect that you will too, so be prepared for your brain to grow a little.  

--   

Question Highlights:

  • Is there any exercise you do to help yourself get really clear on what you need?
  • When a client has the same issue repeatedly is there something you always look at or are there multiple tests?
  • For people who are stuck, where do you begin?
  • How do you balance the points between sticking to it and sabotage?
  • What are some of the main side effects that you see?
  • Have you ever been addicted to caffeine?
  • What is the biggest myth you’ve run into when looking at intake forms?
  • Do you ever see where you can find joy in experiences versus food?
  • What do you do when you’re seeking comfort?
  • What have you learned about yourself because of eating cleaner?

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Bio-individuality and Kelly’s pillars of nutritional needs
  • Learning to love yourself at your fit weight
  • Intuitive eating
  • How Kelly uses science to motivate clients
  • The importance and effects of insulin and cortisol
  • Side effects of different foods
  • How science can set you free with your diet
  • Avoiding the drastic “pendulum swings” and finding balance
  • Setting attainable goals
  • What Kelly does to decompress
  • Making healthier replacement comfort foods
  • Taking charge of your health and understanding it
  • How a glucometer works
  • And so much more…

Quotes:

“You have to be willing to change.”

“If you’re balanced and satisfied, you know what you can and can’t do.”

“Little changes become habits.”

“Make it a choice, not a cheat.”

“Blood sugar is an indicator of what’s to come.”

110: Secrets to Attracting and Mastering Relationships with Rachel DeAlto

Podcast cover
Read more

Rachel DeAlto is a relationship expert, coach, hypnotherapist, motivational speaker, author, and spokesperson. She believes that relationships are the foundation of everything, and it is essential to learn to navigate those relationships with great communication, a sense of perspective, and self-awareness.

Rachel believes in the art of communication, and its inherent value in all aspects of your life. She developed her communications expertise through an undergraduate degree from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University and later as a practicing trial attorney after receiving her Juris Doctorate at Seton Hall University School of Law.

She has also received professional training as a certified coach through the Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching (IPEC) and is a certified hypnotherapist via the International Association Of Counselors & Therapists (IACT).

Rachel is a featured relationship expert on FYI’s Married at First Sight and Second Chances. Rachel has also appeared on a multitude of media outlets and is also a frequent TEDx speaker.

Coming from a law background, coaching one’s love life was kind of something that Rachel sort of “feel into.” Continuing her education to become a coach, Rachel once again went back to school, but this time for the polar-opposite subject…love.

“Relationship coaching came from my natural desire to help people, as did being a lawyer”

As one of my favorite topics to talk about (love and relationships) I got some juicy details out of Rachel! She opens up to us about frequently asked questions in her field along with helpful tips and advice to not only FIND love, but to KEEP love. As powerful women AND men, it’s important to know that “the more you are, the more you expect,” when it comes to finding the one. Understand that the “intimidation factor” is also real, it is very real ladies and gentlemen! Having it all and looking the part to match, isn’t always the easiest to approach. Finding love takes just as much effort on your end, as it does theirs.

“I feel like expectations can kind-of be a killer. You can have desires, but don’t expect every man you meet to live up to them.”

Rachel also shares with us one of the first steps she goes through with her clients. “I ask them what are the four things they look for in someone that they couldn't live without? I only give them four!”

“No one is perfect, but it's more about finding someone who fits with you perfectly.”

Looking to find love? Or maybe enhance your current relationship with some extra fire?! Tune in for some of the greatest love advice I’ve ever heard!

Rachel is the real deal y’all…you can thank me later ;)

I am so excited to have my soul sister, Angelike Norrie, back on my podcast! Having gone through so many challenging life events in the last couple of years, she’s here to share how her Six Guiding Principles helped carry her through them all.

If you feel out of control, this episode is a must listen. I suggest taking notes and perhaps listening twice (if you’re able) to get all the juicy goodness out of it.

“Do at least one thing every day to move the needle forward.”

239: How to Stop Blocking Yourself and Start Manifesting Your Dreams with Sarah Centrella

Podcast cover
Read more

Have you ever had one of those conversations that happened right when you needed it? Well, let’s just say that my chat with today’s guest, Sarah Centrella, was divinely timed. I always say that my podcast was created so I could selfishly get advice for myself, and this episode delivered.

About 10 years ago, Sarah was a stay-at-home mom, married to her high school sweetheart with 3 kids. She thought she and her husband were building this picture-perfect life, but the market turned and she discovered her husband was cheating on her. It was in this moment, broke and divorced, that her life as she knew it changed.

As one could expect, Sarah was shell-shocked. But when the dust settled a bit, she came to the realization that she was in control and had the power to decide who she was going to be. An avid fan of Oprah (who isn’t?), she decided to try a vision board after seeing it on her show. Little did Sarah know that 1.5 years later, her vision board would come to life.

Realizing that it was no coincidence that her vision board and life matched, she created another and watched those things come to fruition as well. Seeing a trend, Sarah interviewed several people to hear their success stories and discovered that there were eight common steps – regardless of the highs and lows – between all of them.

Today, Sarah uses this 8-step plan to help everyone – whether it’s a live coaching appearance or in her book, Hustle Believe Receive – create and manifest the life of their dreams. She encourages action on a daily basis to keep moving that needle toward your end goal/vision.

I loved our talk so much as it’s a great reminder to myself that no one is perfect and we all question our path and struggle from time to time. If you’re frustrated with where you’re at with your dreams, be sure to listen to get an instant pick-me-up! Enjoy!    

--   

Question Highlights:

  • Where did your story begin?
  • What did the journey look like following that sliver of hope?
  • How did you create your vision board, what were the tools around it and how did you use it?
  • What made your vision board life happen?
  • Do you do something daily to get into that mindset?
  • Do you find that some people are afraid to dream or think bigger when it comes to vision boards?
  • Can you share what the 8-Step manifestation process looks like?
  • Where does step 6 (Do it – Hustle) come from?
  • What is the “Live it” step about?

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Where Sarah’s story started
  • What moment marked the end of her life as she knew it
  • When and how Sarah came to create her first vision board
  • How Sarah brought her vision board to life
  • Why we must focus on the life (not the things) we want
  • The importance of linking feelings to the images on your vision boards
  • Using Pinterest to find your vision board images
  • Getting present and resetting when necessary
  • Making your vision so clear that you never give up
  • The 8 steps to create and manifest your dreams
  • “Throwing spaghetti at the wall” to see what sticks/works
  • Sarah’s book Hustle Believe Receive
  • And so much more…

Quotes

“I had to decide who I was going to be.”

“It can get better; it’s in my control.”

“I have always focused on experiences, not things.”

“If you don’t have a clear vision of where you want to go and if you’re not excited, at the very first obstacle you’ll say, ‘peace!’”

“The hustle is what you do on a daily basis.”

“Stop blocking and manifest.”

“There will always be a next level in your journey.”

“If you stop bitching, your life will change.”

133: FIVE WAYS to be POSITIVE Around NEGATIVE People

Podcast cover
Read more

Confession time. Not that long ago, there was a lot of negativity in my life. For some of you this may be hard to believe, but it’s true. I had a ton of toxic friends/relationships in my life and looking back now, I can’t believe I put up with that negativity as long as I did. Some of it was because I failed to set boundaries. Another part was that I tended to take on other people’s “stuff” and carry it as my own. I soon learned, however, that

“You can only control what you can control – and that is YOU.”

I knew that for the sake of my own happiness, I needed to grab the reins and take charge. Here are the five things that help set me on the path to positivity:

1. Know what you can control.

2. Ask yourself, “What is the most beneficial reaction I can have for myself (while still being compassionate).

3. Be compassionate.

4. {Not for the weak.} Call the negative person out.

5. Understand that the person (or your situation) may not change.

Does practicing all five of these things guarantee zero negativity in your life? Not by a long shot – there’s always going to be some amount of negativity in your life. It’s on the street, it’s on the Internet and sometimes, there are people in our lives that we can’t completely cut ties with. If it’s important to you and your happiness, you must start to focus your free time in a more positive place.

If you want to change, you will. If you don’t, you won’t.”

Go to the places that will bring you joy. Spend time with the people who “get” you. And DO the things that help lift you up. Some days will be more difficult than others, but it’s up to you to keep your head and heart in a positive place.

In This Episode You Will Learn About:
  • Negativity
  • Positivity
  • Boundaries
  • Control
  • Change
  • Community
  • Tribe

211: Why You're Supposed to LIVE Your DREAM LIFE with Sheri Salata

Podcast cover
Read more

You know how you meet someone and you instantly feel a soul connection? That’s exactly what it felt like when I heard today’s guest, Sheri Salata, speak at an AWE (Amazing Women Entrepreneurs) event about a year ago. I loved her energy and identified with her when she began speaking, and I then had the honor of meeting her briefly. Needless to say, I’d been dying to interview her ever since and was thrilled when were finally able to sit down and chat – in person!

Sheri is funny, successful and soulful – a powerful trifecta if I ever heard of one. With a 21-year career with The Oprah Winfrey Show, she admittedly had the dreamy career, but she realized she didn’t have the dreamy life. And she came to discover that it was because she forgot how to dream and use happiness (not misery) as her compass.

As Sheri and her friend’s podcast, “This is Fifty,” suggests, it’s never too late to change your story, find happiness and follow your dreams – no matter what your age is.

This was one of the fastest hours of my life and I know this episode will fly for you too. It’s my hope that you soak in every moment of Sheri’s dreamy goodness and put on your magical glasses to see the miracles that surround us all.

--   

Question Highlights:

  • What did it feel like when you knew there was something else?
  • How did you start to calibrate your “compass?”
  • What do you tell women who think it’s too late or that their dreams have passed?
  • What is a story you feel you’re working through right now?
  • What is on your “to-be” list?
  • How do you get your “being space” rolling?
  • Where are you getting joy from during your 90-day cleanse?
  • What are you most excited about?
  • What are you a beginner at right now?
  • When you spot something (a miracle), do you call it out or celebrate it?

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • What Sheri knows right now
  • Why happiness is the right compass (not misery)
  • Dreaming as a muscle and a valuable activity
  • Changing your story to make your dreams come true
  • What achievement means to Sheri now
  • The importance of having ONE integrated life
  • Why Sheri seeks happiness, joy, love and peace in everything
  • What it means to be in the “being space” of manifesting
  • Being in integrity with yourself and making tweaks as you go
  • Clarity and what it means to Sheri
  • Why it’s important to lean into self-care rituals and the energy that’s going to help you manifest your dreams
  • Sheri and her friend’ Nancy’s This is Fifty podcast
  • And so much more…

Quotes:

“I’m a champion resetter and reframer.”

“Happiness is the right compass.”

“Stories make our dreams come true.”

“Reimagine what’s possible and reignite that flame.”

“I work on my ‘to-be’ list, not my to-do list.”

“You can have the greatest boss in the world, but you’re still getting bossed.”

“I only want to be on the joy road.”

“Be a ‘BE-er” of transformation, not a talker about it.”

“Dreams put you in a state of potential and possibility while appreciating where you’re at right now.”

“There’s no more important story than the story you’re telling yourself about yourself.”

“Don’t lose hope in your own possibilities.”

“Stir the hope soup.”

“Hope is the beginning of the trail.”

“You’re supposed to live the life of your dreams.”

We’ve all heard how difficult it can be to become a Navy SEAL – the physical challenges alone can make or break one’s success. Today’s guest and host of The Unbeatable Mind podcast, Mark Divine, had that part covered, but he ensured his success by mastering his thoughts as well.

From a disempowered background and core story, Mark didn’t always have dreams of becoming a Navy SEAL. In fact, he actually had a successful career as a CPA, but he longed for something more that also appealed to his athletic side.

Tune in to find out how Mark shifted his thought patterns and discarded those that didn’t work to accomplish his goals then and how he continues to apply those skills in his life and businesses now. I love how Mark’s approach links the heart and mind – you’re going to be amazed at just how simple it can be once you can quiet your mind and focus on one task at a time.

Mark is from upstate New York and did his formal undergraduate education at Colgate University. His years at Colgate University were focused on athletic endeavors such as competitive swimming, rowing and triathlon racing, interrupted by brief episodes of academic activity. After graduation from "the Gate" Mark started his professional career as a CPA with Coopers & Lybrand in New York City. Clients included luminous and no-longer existent financial firms such as Solomon Brothers and Paine Webber.  Four years later, with an MBA from NYU Stern School of Business in his briefcase, he left behind the suit to pursue his inner vision to become a Navy SEAL officer. He was 26 when he graduated as Honor Man (#1 ranked trainee) of his SEAL BUD/s class 170. Mark was fortunate to serve with many great men and women on active duty for nine years and in the reserves for eleven...retiring at the rank of Commander in 2011. After leaving active duty in 1997, Mark started his second business career as an entrepreneur. He co-founded the successful Coronado Brewing Company and launched NavySEALs.com in the same year he left active duty. To this day, it is the leading website for gear and information about the SEALs.  Mark's business career was interrupted by a stint as an Adjunct Professor of Leadership at the University of San Diego, where he was pursuing his Doctorate in Leadership, then by a one-year recall to active duty in 2004. The recall took him to Baghdad with SEAL Team One to conduct a special project for Naval Special Warfare Command surrounding the role of the USMC in Special Operations. While in Iraq, Mark developed Kokoro Yoga, which allows you to see, feel, hear, and live the goal you are looking to achieve through warrior visualization. 

In 2007 he launched his CrossFit affiliate and the now internationally known SEALFIT program to provide transformational personal and team training experiences. The training utilizes an integrated warrior development model he developed, called Unbeatable Mind, which draws from his 20 years as a SEAL and business leader, 25 years as a martial artist and 15 years as yoga practitioner.  He now hosts a highly rated podcast on iTunes called Unbeatable Mind. SEALFIT and Unbeatable Mind are uniquely effective at elevating clients to a higher level of operating, thinking and leading - encompassing the full spectrum of human experience: Body, Mind and Spirit in Self, Team and Organization. Mark advises and trains a diverse group of clients through his Unbeatable Mind and SEALFIT programs including: Olympic medalists, CEOs, Superbowl champions and other professional athletes.

196: Find The Courage To Live The Life You Were Meant For

Podcast cover
Read more

Can you believe it? This is my last official quickie of 2017! What a ride 2017 was. And before I get into things here, and no matter what happened, I want you to acknowledge everything that happened – good and bad – and how it’s helped you learn.

Try to reframe the word failure, because it’s not always about winning or failing, it’s about learning or… learning. Yes! Can you we agree to take the word failure out of our vocabulary? As Nelson Mandela once said, “I don’t lose. I either win or learn.”

We need the contrast to help guide us where to go next. Personally, there we several things that I hoped to accomplish or have a different outcome within 2017, but it just made me realize that those dips and darkness were needed to amplify all the good things.

“The failures just tell you what to do next.”

And it was often the opposite of what I thought. Whether you lost a business, a friendship or a relationship, you learned. We are always learning and all the things we learn only help us live in our purpose. But here’s the thing, in order to realize all this, we need to find the courage to go against the grain. We need to say no. We need to do things that challenge what others say is the right thing to do.

You don’t need new goals; you just need to have the courage to say no to things that aren’t elevating your life. And trust me, it’s not going to be easy, but when you really dig deep and think outside the box, you can say truthfully that you lived a life that fully made you expand into the human you were meant to be.

“Step into your courage and into your truth.”

Wishing you abundance and bravery in 2018 – I cannot wait to see you rock your life!

--

In This Episode You Will Learn:

  • Why failures are part of our success
  • How deeper courage won’t show up until you call upon it
  • Why you don’t necessarily need new goals to live in your highest purpose

153: Hacks for a Better Body, Sharper Brain, and More Willpower with Dave Asprey - Founder of Bulletproof Coffee

Podcast cover
Read more

I know you are all going to love today’s guest, Dave Asprey. Not only will you be in awe of his transformation story, but he shares so many useful tips and tools to help you gain more energy AND boost both the health of your mind and body.

A successful Silicon Valley tech entrepreneur and the founder of Bulletproof Coffee, Dave once weighed 300 lbs. and even though he spent 1.5 hours at the gym daily and ate a super low-calorie diet, he couldn’t budge the scale. He felt old in his young body. It wasn’t until he decided to cut sugar from his diet (and inadvertently lower his carb intake) that he lost 50 lbs. It took him another 7-8 years while biohacking and figuring out his body to lose the other 50.

Since that time and with an innate sense of curiosity, Dave has discovered and created techniques, and keys to taking control of and improving a person’s biochemistry, body and mind so they work in unison, helping one execute at levels far beyond what is expected without burning out, getting sick, or allowing stress to control decisions.

I learned and related to so much of this amazingly educational conversation and I hope you do as well. Dave’s determination and drive to discover more and more about the human body is so inspiring. I’m giddy just thinking about where his work will take us in the years to come.

Happy Listening!

Show Notes:

In 2015 Annie Spano was lost and depressed because she was being bullied at her corporate job. Then she started blogging and connected with other women bloggers. Having that community made her feel like herself again. She decided to leave her job and create a membership-based blogger tribe for women, Style Collective.  

Question Highlights:

-How did you build a dream when you and your husband were both unemployed? 

-Is it possible for people to figure out what they want if they’re in a bad environment?

-How do you deal when people say you’re selfish for prioritizing your needs?

-What is the worst thing you’ve experienced in business?

-How can people start building a support system from nothing?

Guest Bio:

Annie Spano is a former math teacher and corporate marketer with a BS in mathematics education and an MBA. She is the Founder of Style Collective, an online supportive community with influencer education that empowers women to find their purpose, be inclusive and achieve success. 

Style Collective was created in reaction to an experience no other woman should ever have. In late 2015, Annie left her job in corporate marketing after being bullied and harassed by another woman in the workplace. The experience left her feeling defeated and emotionally drained. She wished there was a way for women to work together and help each other achieve success. Annie has since made it her mission to empower other women, improve their happiness, and help them achieve their goals through sisterhood and support of a shared passion. Style Collective is the realization of that mission.

Show Notes:

In this episode I’m talking about moving through indecision. There's a lot of things that I know in my business that I need to get better at such as implementing systems and a good onboarding process. And instead of doing those things, I do the things that are easier but won’t move the needle. Then I feel like I'm choosing suffering by putting something off that I know needs to happen. It’s so important to make a decision and execute because that’s the only way you’re going to get feedback. I hope today’s quickie serves as a reminder or way for you to be able to get back to the heart-centered reason of WHY you’re working on your dreams.

Review of the Week:

C*Clarke

"There is no question, just awesome! Lori and Evans travel with me to and from work often. So much that I feel like we get each other. I love the variety of episodes and interviews because it keeps things real and shows the dimensions of a human being vs just one side. My favorite is questionably awesome, to which there is no question about it, it just IS awesome! Thank you Lori and thank you Evans for being authentic, and courageous and goofy and giving us a spectrum of being that is so relatable and inspiring. I will continue to laugh and answer ‘heck yeah!’ to your words of wisdom on my commute to and from work and joy give a poop if the car next to me thinks I’m talking and laughing to myself. Much love.

Show Notes:

The best things in life are going to come from things that scare you. We pray for massive expansion. We want to hold these incredibly huge visions, except when we get put into the exact thing that is going to expand us. A lot of us say, get me out of here. I can't do it. This is too much. I'm not sure of myself. What about my past? What are people going to say? And we don't sit long enough in the fire to let it burn away our old form and let us stretch into the person that can handle the dream. Today I’m talking all about staying in the discomfort in order to get through it and through to the other side. I hope today’s quickie serves as a reminder or way for you to be able to get back to the heart-centered reason of WHY you’re working on your dreams.

Time for another Q&A Day with me and Evans! Listen in as we answer questions that you have sent in, and hear our favorite quotes of the moment! In today’s “questionably awesome” episode, Evans and I are talking all about resistance. We cover how to love yourself into making better decisions, how to make a decision and move on without second-guessing plus how to pause to make sure you’re in control of your emotions so you don’t act from a place of chemical reaction in your body.

Review of the Week:

Aliciasep

Holy crap I’ve never felt closer to y’all! I love the show! Been listening for over a year and finally getting around to leaving a review. Just listened to a Questionably Awesome about leveling up where you talked about going home - specifically how you feel like you have to rush to get home and sit with family, and then they talk about their new shelf! I thought it was just me and it’s cool to hear that you all experience that. Also, why is that even a thing!? Anyway, love your podcast and random tangents. Makes me feel like I’m just listening to people I want to be friends with. Btw, can we be friends?! -Alicia

Question 1:

@meg_cole_

How do you push through towards your goals when the resistance is SO STRONG?

Question 2:

@acadiachampagne

How do you stop self-sabotaging once you recognize you're the problem?

  • How Makenzie grew up watching the Food Network
  • Mirror therapy
  • Surrendering to a vision and the guidance of the universe
  • Seeking shareholders who share her vision

Resources:

Show Notes:

Makenzie Marzluff is the founder of Delighted By, a high-vibe, better-for-you dessert company. But before that she studied pre-med, moved to Australia for 2.5 years and did a bunch of inner work. When searching for her purpose at the end of her healing journey she heard a message that said, “Makenzie, your purpose is to spread your glitter. It doesn't matter what you do, it matters how you do it.” Join us for this conversation about consciously raising capital, running a business intuitively and why Makenzie’s so passionate about entrepreneurs who are committed to their own healing. 

Question Highlights:

  • Why is living in Maui so good for your nervous system? 
  • What does leading your business 100% from intuition look like?
  • When you were raising capital for your business, did you start with your vision or the product?
  • What would you say to those people who are waiting to find their business?

Guest Bio:

Makenzie Marzluff is the founder of Delighted By, a high-vibe, better-for-you dessert company, and is most well known for inventing ‘dessert hummus’ in 2015. She went from living in a van and starting the company on her credit cards, to running a multimillion-dollar, women-led organization. Makenzie’s company was featured on ABC’s Shark Tank, as well as hundreds of outlets across the globe including Cosmo, Live with Kelly, Good Morning America, Oprah Magazine and Women’s Health.

Makenzie is out to infuse love and light into the supply chain of the food industry by leading in ways that are definitely not talked about in business school. She is launching her book How To Lead A Badass Business From The Heart later this year, and is out to inspire entrepreneurs to follow their fear, surrender to their bigger vision, and leave a legacy of love by spreading their unique ‘glitter’ in the world.

Whether you are being bullied online, whether you have a friend who is questioning who you are as you grow, or whether you are completely doubting yourself and not feeling smart enough, these are all opportunities to shine. I recently had an experience that I might share more about later. In the past, I would have gone to a very dark place and it would have taken me down for a really long time. This time I was able to bounce right back knowing that it is not our place to feel bad. We are meant to stay in joy because that's where we get outside of our heads and our small worlds. We expand, we grow and we give our talents, our efforts and our money to people. I hope today’s quickie serves as a reminder or way for you to be able to get back to the heart-centered reason of WHY you’re working on your dreams.

In today’s “questionably awesome” episode, Evans and I are talking all about resistance. In moments of resistance I feel like my inner toddler’s having a temper tantrum and it wants to do anything but the thing I have to do. But I know if I can just sit through the resistance, there's a huge reward on the other side.

Review of the Week:

TracyNadler

You and Evans are seriously so hilarious! I eagerly await every Wednesday to hear your silliness, humor and sound advice! Your podcast makes me literally laugh out loud and puts so much joy in my heart. I love how you combine humor with self help and are just being yourselves! It’s so refreshing to listen to - I wish I could hear you everyday - like I’m not kidding you could have a morning show just like Hoda and Kathie Lee (now Jenna.). Thank you for showing up as YOU and providing laughter and wisdom to my day! 😊❤️

Question 1:

How do I have all the pieces and support I need to "do this thing" but I still don't do it?!

Question 2:

How do you quickly identify resistant behavior, thoughts and paradigms and redirect the energy?

Question 3:

@rebekahmanella

How do you work through the discomfort when resistance resents as anxiety or panic?
