Be sure to listen in as Sahara explains her personal journey with Ayurveda and how you too can gain more balance in your life by figuring out your own mind body type (dosha). It may be easier than you think!

--  

Questions Asked in This Episode:

  • Can you tell us your story and how you came to be an expert on Ayurveda?
  • Did you find that a lot of self-healing happened when you wrote your book?
  • What are the different mind body (dosha) types?
  • How can we help our bodies feel better and more at ease?
  • What is the smallest thing we can do to start shifting and noticing the ways in which we feel better?
  • How did eating for your mind body type affect your mentally? What opened up for you?
  • What started showing up for you when you started to change your habits?
  • What did you do/think about in order to shift gears?
  • Are you incorporating all three doshas into your eating and exercising habits?
  • What are some of the biggest (and most important) takeaways that you would love people to implement in order to feel shifts?

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Sahara’s path that led her to Ayurveda
  • Healing yourself to find your purpose
  • Ayurveda’s three different mind/body types (doshas)
  • How to determine your Vikruti (the levels of each dosha that you were created with)
  • Foods that are beneficial for each mind body type (dosha)

  • The benefits of consuming warmer foods and beverages to aid in digestion

Quotes:

“When you’re in the right place at the right time, things will just happen really fast.”

“This is so much more than food. It’s not just food we’re digesting; it’s thoughts, emotions and experiences, too.”

“Ayurveda is a spiritual practice grounded in the physical body.”

“Earth provides us with what our bodies need at that time.”

“It’s not, ‘you are what you eat.’ It’s ‘you are what you digest.’”

Rank #2: 273: Turn Pain and Fear into Courage and Learn How to Talk to Anyone with Alex Banayan

Podcast cover
Read more

I love a good story and today’s guest, author Alex Banayan has a great one – so much so that parts of it have become part of my husband Chris and I’s daily walks. Thank goodness I met him in person when Chris interviewed him so I knew whose stories he was actually talking about. ;) Another fun coincidence, we’ve both been on the Price Is Right, but Alex actually WON and used those winnings to fund his new book, The Third Door.

Alex shares with us his seven-year book journey that lead him to interview some of the world’s most successful people to show how they broke through and launched their careers. But let’s not downplay the fears and obstacles that Alex had to navigate through as well. From disappointing his family and losing his father to insecurity and being turned down by potential interviewees, Alex was persistent and now helps others conquer obstacles of all kinds – internal and external.

Alex truly is a gifted storyteller and I know you’ll be able to relate to some many facets of his journey. You don’t want to miss it!

--

Question Highlights:

  • Now that your book is out in the world, what has been a response that you weren’t expecting?
  • What was the whole point of writing your book?
  • What does pain with awareness look like for you right now?
  • Do you think there’s always a way for anything you choose or just for the moments when your gut pulls you that way?
  • Have you ever had to let go of helping someone in your life because they’re not ready to help themselves?
  • What was a story that freed you up the most?
  • What is something that shook you before your book came out?
  • What are you most excited about right now?
  • Who is the ultimate person you want to read your book?

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Alex’s seven-year book journey
  • Using pain as a motivator
  • Evolving motivation
  • Alex’s insecurity while writing The Third Door
  • How Alex’s pain evolved into curiosity
  • How Alex’s Price Is Right winnings funded his book
  • Why being naïve can be an advantage
  • The difference between fear and courage
  • Why Alex’s family didn’t initially support his book
  • Welcoming fear to get more comfortable
  • How fear was a universal element in achieving a dream in all the people Alex interviewed
  • Sharing in order to connect with others
  • How to conquer internal and external obstacles
  • And so much more…

Quotes

“Pain with awareness is our teacher.”

“You can give someone all the best tools and knowledge in the world and their life can still be stuck, but if you change what someone believes is possible, they’ll never be the same.”

“Courage is acknowledging fears, analyzing the consequences and then deciding you care so much about it you’re going to take one thoughtful step forward anyway.”

--

ALEX BANAYAN is the author of the national bestseller The Third Door, which chronicles his five-year quest to track down Bill Gates, Lady Gaga, Warren Buffett, Maya Angelou, Steven

Spielberg, and dozens more of the world’s most successful people to uncover how they broke through and launched their careers.

Banayan has been named to Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list, Business Insider’s Most Powerful People Under 30, and been featured in major media including Fortune, Forbes, Businessweek, Billboard,

Bloomberg TV, CNBC, Fox News, MSNBC, and CBS News. An acclaimed keynote speaker, Banayan has presented the Third Door framework to business conferences and corporate leadership teams around the world, including Apple, Google, Nike, IBM, Snapchat, Salesforce, Disney, Harvard, and countless others.

Rank #4: 64: Tap Into YOUR INNER BADASS with Jen Sincero

Podcast cover
Read more

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. Sitting around and wishing for it to fall from the sky, will never happen (although that would be pretty cool.) 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
  • The Truths about money

Show Notes:

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.

  • An exercise to work through opposing ideas
  • A quote that’s really speaking to me today

Resources:

Show Notes

I’m in a place right now where I’m observing my patterns and how those patterns tend to judge the emotions I feel. I’m in this place of duality, where two main ideas are existing in my mind at the same time, and they are fighting a little. I’m putting in the work to allow both ideas to have their own voice so that they can coexist within me. Today I’ll share an exercise that I’m going to do in order to help me (and you!) even further understand the patterns and emotions in my mind.

Rank #7: 178: Become The REAL You

Podcast cover
Read more

“The most powerful way to raise the vibration of our world is to fully honor who we came here to be.” – Kristin Ace

Today I want to talk about you becoming YOU. Not the “you” you think you should be, but the you that honors your soul – at all corners of it. So ask yourself, in what ways are you honoring your soul? Now, in what ways are you absolutely denying your soul, suffocating yourself or cutting yourself off?

Chances are that if you found more things in the latter categories you’re feeling out of alignment with your higher self, which is why with every choice we make, we must choose the choice that keeps us aligned. It’s not easy sometimes (OK a lot of the time). We typically don’t roll out of bed in the morning and feel connected. We must create the experiences that fill our souls.

I know you may be questioning what that really feels like, but trust me. You’ll know you’re following the path your soul wants you to take when you feel in flow, connected and free especially in terms of self-expression. Keep in mind that just because you’re doing things that are on this path doesn’t mean that you won’t feel any fear or stress. I often find that the fear isn’t the around the actual act, but the thoughts around doing the act. Fear is still necessary (but it usually helps us in the long run).

“Fear is a direct indicator of where you need to go.”

So, what’s an experience that you’re being pulled toward right now? Seriously, anything – nothing is too small, big or outrageous! Bike riding, writing, creating, painting, horseback riding, bungee jumping… What will make you feel alive, bring you awareness, excitement, relaxation or learning – or all of the above and more? Both projects and play are equally important, so again, listen to what your soul is calling you to do.

“You already know what you are. It’s time to create those experiences to become you.”

For the next 30 days, I challenge you to create one soul experience a day. It doesn’t have to be anything big – sometimes the small stuff leads to bigger shifts anyway. See how people react to you. You’ll likely notice that people are more drawn to you when you’re in alignment. I can personally tell when I’m in my highest self because when I go for runs I get more high-fives and more smiles all around – and I FEEL more creative.

Give yourself the space to hear your soul and I would love if you would report your findings in the comments of this episode’s IG tile @loriharder. I cannot wait to read them!

In This Episode You Will Learn:

  • What it feels like to be in and out of alignment with your soul
  • Why we must create experiences that connect us with our highest self
  • Why fear or pain is an inevitable component of finding the real you

Not too long ago, Sarah Nicole embarked in a journey to better her life, losing 100 pounds, working through inner dialogue, and finding value within herself.

She lost 100lbs and went through massive life change with a divorce pushing her into new chapter of single motherhood. But like, a badass chapter. Since then, she met this bearded guy and he drank her poison and asked her to marry him. So she locked that down quickly and now they rock the whole chosen family thing! After struggling to find love for her body after losing all that weight, she worked through a lot of inner dialogues to discover the value and meaning behind self-love - and well, she thinks it's worth sharing about. By using social media as her journal, she loves helping others see and understand their worth, love their bodies, feel less alone in the world, and be ok with life's little shakeups.

Rank #14: 272: The SECRET To Reaching Your Next Level

Podcast cover
Read more

This past weekend I spoke at the Thrive event in Las Vegas (which was amazing), and I also came to the realization that my life is one big classroom. You see, I got sick the morning of the day I was supposed to speak. I’m not sure if it was food poisoning or the flu, but needless to say I wasn’t going anywhere for a while. It was like life was flashing a big neon sign with a message that was impossible for me to ignore. In fact, there were multiple nudges, messages and signs that day, but I’ll leave those for another episode as I’m still marinating in a few of them. One thing I’ve come to realize though is that:

“Every single thing that happens can be a breakthrough lesson and everyone can be a teacher.”

Now this doesn’t mean that nothing bothers us, but it does mean that we get to choose how we view a particular situation and move through it. Yes, you may struggle and it may be annoying or painful, but the sooner we can accept it, the more quickly we’re able to advance to the next level.

“The sooner we accept the obstacle as a lesson or the person as a teacher, we get to move through it faster.”

As Tom Bilyeu shared with me just the other day, “Struggle is guaranteed, success is not.” In order to get to the next level, we have to experience it all. And if we’re going to struggle, we may as well get something useful out of it, yes?

Compare it to a rookie’s journey to becoming a pro. There’s always that point where the rookie is thrown in the game and the team may win or they might lose. The rookie will learn the do’s and don’ts – most likely the hard way. Whatever they experience though, it’s necessary because the coaches make the decision to move up that particular player if they don’t see them in action.

Once you realize that obstacles and people (yes, even those rude people in traffic) are here to teach us, you will experience a whole new level of freedom. It will be uncomfortable and you might shout expletives now and again, but practice and sharpening the skills of love, compassion, boundaries and saying no will help you step into that next level of your life.

In This Episode Lori talks about:

  • Why life is our classroom
  • Why struggle is inevitable
  • Viewing obstacles as lessons and people as teachers

Rank #16: 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.”

Rank #17: 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.”

Rank #18: 267: Ways to ATTRACT WEALTH Rather Than Chase It with Patrice C. Washington

Podcast cover
Read more

Money doesn’t guarantee fulfillment and today’s guest, Patrice Washington, is hoping more women catch on. As an award-winning author, transformational speaker, hope-restoring coach, and media personality, she started her first 7-figure mortgage-brokering business with her husband before graduating college. Their business was wildly successful until the recession crashed and they lost everything.

Picking herself up after this experience, she realized that she had a lot of knowledge but needed to seek more wisdom. She dug deep and knew it was more important to chase her purpose – not money. She discovered that life is about so much more – relationships, your well-being and your faith to name a few. Recognizing the power of this discovery, she created the 6 Pillars of Redefining Wealth, and now teaches others how they can tie each pillar back to producing wealth – and stay true to who they’re called to be.

I had such a great time talking with Patrice – she is such a down-to-earth, purpose-driven woman who relies on faith and her own unique calling to help others find theirs as well. I hope this episode empowers you to break free from any limiting beliefs that you have about yourself and helps you step into your highest purpose and calling.

Question Highlights:

  • What were some things you took back from your recent trip to France?
  • Does the thought of working with your husband again scare you?
  • What is lighting you up right now in your life?
  • What is something you would say to someone who’s ignoring a redefining moment?
  • How do you trust? What do you rely on to push past fear?
  • What are the 6 Pillars of Redefining Wealth?
  • What’s something that helps build your faith foundation?
  • What mindset do you keep through the dark times?
  • What’s a message on your heart right now?

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • How Patrice’s recent trip to France impacted her
  • How Patrice and her husband are merging their interests to work together
  • Being driven by purpose
  • The shift that happened in Patrice’s life after her and her husband lost their 7-figure business when the recession hit

  • How Patrice broke out of the box she (and others) had put herself in

“If it was done before, it can be done again.”

“Everything can go bad with money, but if your mind is in the right place, you can always rebuild.”

Rank #19: 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.”

Rank #20: 277: How to Become the Person Who Makes BIG Impact with Tom Bilyeu

Podcast cover
Read more

I am so thrilled today to have Tom Bilyeu on the show! I recently had the amazing opportunity and experience of being interviewed on his podcast, Impact Theory and I couldn’t wait to continue the conversation and learn even more about the similarities in our lives and business – and this time, pick his brain.

Similar to my journey, Tom grew up in a family who struggled with their weight, and broke the pattern by choosing to pave a healthier way for himself and as result change the trajectory of his life at the same time. That’s why today he’s so passionate about helping others who struggle with their weight. However, Tom is the first to acknowledge that it’s not always an easy path. In fact, when it comes to success in weight loss or a business or career, nothing is guaranteed – except the pain or struggle. And to get through any of that, you must take action and also accept that you may not be right about x-y-z right now. We have to be willing to make changes if we want to see change.
