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

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.

178: Become The REAL You
“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 Resources: The Bliss Project 2018 March 2-4, 2019 | Newport Beach, CA http://www.TheBlissProject.info Checkout my website at http://loriharder.com.

272: The SECRET To Reaching Your Next Level
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 Resources: Aligned Registration Opens soon.

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. -- Questions Asked in This Episode What was it that pulled you through all of your recent life events/challenges? What does it feel like when you’re in and out of alignment – mentally and physically? What do you do when you catch yourself just doing something just to do something – even when it’s not fulfilling? What are your 6 Guiding Principles? What do you do to manage time with your family when you’re in the thick of hustling? How do you do both and still move the needle forward in life? How do we make sure social media doesn’t infiltrate our minds or send us down a negative spiral? In This Episode You Will Learn: About Angelike’s 6 Guiding Principles: Faith, Family, Fitness, Financial Freedom, Fellowship and Play. Why just accomplishing and just “doing” won’t ever fulfill you About the importance of being resourceful Why balance is BS How doing ONE thing a day can propel you forward Why it’s important to set boundaries in all areas of life Why we must have fun and joy while working/hustling And so much more… Quotes: “The pain is inevitable; the suffering is a choice.” “If I can find order in the physical, I can find order in the spiritual.” “If the world is moving forward and you’re sitting still, you’re going to be left behind.” “Do at least one thing every day to move the needle forward.” “We must make a conscious decision to create sacred space for our family.” “If the queen doesn’t eat, the kingdom won’t either.” “If you have a bad day, have three good ones after that.” “Don’t underestimate the power of 15 minutes.” “Your why is a command on your life.” “Don’t make it so you have to carve out fun like it’s an obligation.” -- Angelike Norrie is a happily married, working mother of two adorable girls and a five-time cover model. Prior to taking a leap of faith to control her own destiny, she worked in corporate America as a sales executive, managing fortunes and people. After escaping 60-hour workweeks with extensive travel, she became an entrepreneur with a passion for nutrition, fitness, philosophy, and business coaching. These days, instead of stressing about quotas, day care and commutes, she helps women flex both their physical and spiritual muscles through Soulutions, a multi-faceted coaching program that helps women bare their souls and regain dominion in all areas of their life. A world martial arts champion and believer in daily discipline, Angelike is the author of Life Lines, a four-part journal series for women that provides weekly inspiration, daily reflection and goal setting, all combined with tools for daily meal and exercise tracking. Using the power of technology, Angelike developed Body Soulutions, a free online monthly membership club for women who want to be mentored and coached with cutting-edge health information, fun recipes, laughter and goofiness, and strategies for building happy, balanced lives and financial stability.

239: How to Stop Blocking Yourself and Start Manifesting Your Dreams with Sarah Centrella
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.” -- Best-Selling Author | Master Coach Vision Board & Manifesting Expert Sarah Centrella is the author of the #1 best-selling self-help book Hustle Believe Receive An 8 Step Plan to Changing Your Life and Living Your Dream. Centrella is known as the premier vision board expert and original Manifesting Gangsta! Her new book of the same title will be released in early 2019.
