Podcast cover
Read more

In a world of current unknowns, there’s one thing that’s familiar to you, one thing you know deeply, inside and out–YOU. Now, more than ever, is the perfect time to reflect on whether or not you’re living your purpose. Luckily, Jessica Rockson, iPEC Certified Professional Coach, is here to share her open and honest experience and advice on discovering who you are and where you’re going.  

Jessica works with individuals and corporate clients, primarily in the professional services sector. These are clients who have achieved success but want to live richer and more fulfilling lives. Jessica helps her clients get out of their own way and overcome their internal blocks to move forward in a way that’s sustainable. The result: total transformation in every area of their lives. 

Get on the journey of you. Listen now!

Key takeaways:

The big adaptation. We’ve lived in a society that held strong to the illusion of a work-life balance; then the pandemic began. But there’s light to figuring out the madness. Looking to increase productivity AND be more relaxed? The SECRET is . . . [18:11]. 

The big transformation. You’ve been searching for years and years like there’s this thing in the back of your mind and you just can’t put your finger on it, but it’s missing. Your PURPOSE is calling and it looks/sounds like this . . . [20:52]. 

The big battle. Far too often our sense of value’s measured by what we produce or achieve. It’s a continuous loop of living in ‘fight mode,’ fighting for everything and being left completely depleted–mentally and physically. To slow down the battle, try THIS . . .  [30:58]. 

The big exploration. What if you’re a friend, a parent, or even an existing coach who’s helping someone discover his or her purpose–where do you begin? What questions should you ask? It’s not a one-way path, but you can always start HERE . . . [38:50].

Rank #2: EP147 - Author and Self-Talk Advocate, Cynthia Kane: Talk to Yourself Like a Buddhist

Podcast cover
Read more

When you think of yourself, what first comes to mind? Is the thought negative and critical or positive and empowering? When our inner critic determines so much of who we are, it’s essential that we make every effort possible to have encouraging self-talk. Cynthia Kane, author and self-talk advocate, shares just how to tap into your internal chaos and build an inner dialogue that helps you thrive.

Cynthia’s the author of How to Communicate Like a Buddhist and her latest book, Talk to Yourself Like a Buddhist, was just released. She’s a certified meditation and mindfulness instructor dedicated to helping men and women change their communication routines so they feel in control of their words and understood at home and work. Cynthia’s work has been featured in The Washington Post, BBC Travel, Yoga Journal, Women’s Day and so much more. She offers workshops, private coaching, and a certification program in intentional communication.

The journey to a happy life starts within–let’s go!

Key Takeaways:

Happy self-talk. Sometimes you can get lost in a dark place where your inner dialogue’s bursting with negativity. You may look around for someone to talk to, to reason with, to help you through this rough path but the first person to start with is simple–YOU. Take THIS first step to begin a round of positive self-talk…[07:25].

Critical self-talk. Cynthia describes negative self-talk as any type of talk that promotes suffering. It’s something we’re conditioned to from the world around us. Not anymore! Now that you’re on your way to creating a healthier self-dialogue, banish self-judgment for good by avoiding this ONE destructive pattern along the way…[19:28].

Healing self-talk. Your self-identity encapsulates everything you feel, think, and believe that you are. When you care and think well about yourself, you’re connected in a manner that’s empowering and in doing so, you reflect that empathetic nature to those around you. The SECRET to getting there is this...[27:40].

Rank #4: EP177 - Author, Psychology Professor, and Behavior Analytic, Dr. Steven C. Hayes: Accept Yourself and All Your Thoughts, Feelings, and Emotions

Podcast cover
Read more

When things around you begin to fall apart, how do you react? Are you the first to blame, the first to run from? So many of us would rather turn against ourselves–our own emotions, experiences, bodily sensations–rather than really dive deep and let the hurt be what heals us. Steven C. Hayes, Ph.D., a psychotherapy developer and prolific author, is on a mission to alleviate human suffering and get behind the real reasons we call ourselves the enemy.

Dr. Hayes is Professor of Psychology at the University of Nevada and author of 44 books as well as over 600 scientific articles. He's especially known for his work on acceptance and commitment therapy—also known as ACT—one of the most widely used and researched acceptance and mindfulness-based methods of psychological intervention. It’s also used in coaching to assist with organizational training, leadership, and performance. Dr. Hayes’s book, Get Out Of Your Mind And Into Your Life sold over 30,0000 copies worldwide and was a bestselling self-help book in the United States. He has received several national awards, the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Association of Behavioral and Cognitive Therapy, and is ranked among the most cited psychologists in the world.

Unravel and liberate everything you truly are and never look back.

Key takeaways:

Removing the mask. Anxiety, depression, sadness—these are deep emotions that can bury or elevate you. So what’s it going to be? How do you rise when the feelings are so overpowering that you feel you’ve lost your way? By knowing this ONE motto . . . [13:56].

Taking step one. You are who you are. The good, the bad, and all the in-between—but who is this person and have you truly come to accept who you really, deeply are? If the answer is no, do you wonder what your future looks like? Take a glance HERE . . . [23:31].

Becoming more flexible. Can you imagine a world where you’re a conscious human being, open to your thoughts, feelings, memory, and bodily sensations while being able to focus on your values against the behavior linked to it? Is it even possible?! The answer is a strong YES. Get started by knowing THIS . . . [33:14].

Accepting the hurt. How often are you in an emotional situation where you’d rather avoid than accept? Isn’t it easier to pour a glass of wine, to binge-watch a show, or medicate? Of course it is. But doing so also avoids some amazing possibilities ahead. Start seeing what’s possible by taking this TEST . . . [45:30].

Rank #5: EP136 - Special Panel Discussion: Where does true and sustainable happiness come from?

Podcast cover
Read more

When you think of happiness, what comes first in your mind—a yellow smiley face, self-help books, sunshine, and rainbows? The conversation around the field of happiness has been evolving in the past 20 years and events such as The World Happiness Summit have brought leaders in positive psychology and more to share their own research and personal practices to sustaining happiness and well-being.

Turns out it’s not about being happy all the time, and these researchers/experts aren’t the happiest people in the world either! So, where and how do you find REAL happiness, the kind that lasts a lifetime? Listen in as today’s guests include three professionals who’ve attended this year’s World Happiness Summit and share their proven perspectives to finding such happiness.

First is business breakthrough coach, Aliya Levinson Kehoe, who helps small businesses think big. She works with new coaches who struggle with a lack of direction and clarity and would like to successfully launch their coaching practice and attract all their first paying clients quickly with ease and confidence. Second is personal development coach, Samantha Inch, who helps young women that are stuck and unfulfilled to redesign their lives so they can live with purpose and live on purpose. Samantha’s passion for helping young women comes from her own transformation working in Corporate America. Last, but definitely not least, is positive psychology coach, professional speaker, and founder of Make Money Coaching program, Marc Cordon. He’s the international bestselling author of Beyond Resilient: The Coach’s Guide to Ecstatic Growth, has received his Bachelors in Science in neuroscience and behavioral biology, as well as a Masters in public health and policy management.

Let the happy conversation begin!

Key takeaways:

The happiness-when syndrome. I’ll be happy when I get the promotion/find that perfect someone/have the money to travel, when I (fill in the blank). It’s easy to get lost in the cycle of an unending happiness quest. Where does it end and how can you start to break free? Begin HERE… [12:59].

The happiness misconception. Going on a first date, getting a raise, eating your favorite dessert—these moments give you instant gratification but the pleasure’s fleeting. So much of what we’re taught is that happiness is linked to our external world and not sustainable. Ready to know true happiness? THIS is what happiness really is…[18:43].

The happiness game. You’ve discovered the real meaning of happiness and you’ve done the soul searching to identify what actually fulfills you internally and externally, but you’re still NOT happy. What’s the deal? Avoid THESE signs when you’re on your happiness quest…[27:17].

The happiness strategy. If you’re happy and you know it, is clapping your hands the only thing you should do to sustain it? The panelists reveal their most insightful daily/weekly practices to maintain and build happiness throughout your life. The full spectrum of happiness tips and exercises revealed at…[50:14].

For many, happiness can seem like an intangible (unreachable) target set far off in the distance. Everyone wants to be happy. You don't have to be a Harvard professor to know that. Or do you???

Dr. Tal-Ben Shahar actually taught a class at Harvard on the science and experience of happiness. It was one of the most popular courses at Harvard . . . EVER. Lucky for us, we won't have to pay Harvard money to access Tal's insights and wisdom. All we have to do is click a button

This week we'd like to invite you to a sneak peek of the world's first certification in happiness as we partner with Tal and his team to launch the Happiness Studies Academy's Certificate in Happiness Studies program. 

If you're ready to dive in, start by listening to this week's episode. It'll prime your mind and prepare you for what's to come in the happiness certification program. Then visit http://www.oneideaaway.com/happy to dig deeper, learn more, and get a FREE first look at Tal's course in happiness.

Rank #6: EP150 - Special Panel Discussion: When What You Wanted, Isn't What You Want

Podcast cover
Read more

The Happy When Syndrome is the belief that you’ll be happy when you achieve something or get this or that. And the truth is, you are. For one fleeting moment you’re sitting on top of the world, untouchable, unstoppable, and then . . . the realization that you need more settles in. We’ve all fallen into this trap and many of us struggle to get out of this behavioral pattern—until now. Listen in, as life-coaches Amanda Kaufman and Carolyn Barsky guide you to creating the life you really, truly want.

Amanda’s an executive coach, speaker, wife, mother, productivity/performance nerd, and sincere advocate in helping you crush your performance goals. Prior to formally launching her coaching practice, Amanda spent a decade as a strategist, mentor, and leader, traveling all over North America to serve her high-end profile clients all while raising a young family and pursuing several personal goals at the same time. Carolyn’s a certified life/career coach and the owner of Compass Maven, a company that helps women in their 20s and early 30s gain the clarity and confidence they need to get unstuck and turn the lives and careers of their dreams into reality. Upon graduating college, Carolyn spent nearly six years working a highly successful career in corporate sales.

Whatever life stage you’re in, release yourself from the pressure of having to have it all figured out and be open to what lies ahead!

Key takeaways:

The original you. Who you are at this moment of your life very much guides your decision-making. So what’s essential to you right now and what goals do you want to reach? More importantly, will those goals/decisions align with your future self? Before you say yes, know what to look for by starting HERE…[16:35].

The broken you. You’re crushing the job you’re in; good money, great experiences, overworked, you love it. But do you? You have this sense of burnout and you’re filling the fleeting thought of getting out with MORE work. How do you know when you’ve reached your mental capacity? Look for THIS sign… [23:57].

The reflective you. Imagine if you could look back at your journey and see the breadcrumbs of what you’re really good at to help guide you in developing the next, most fulfilled version of yourself. Good news! There’s beauty and evolution in hindsight if you know where to start. Try THIS first…[34:25].

The brand-new you. The moment’s here. You're starting to unravel what it is you really want to do and the universe is aligning with your goals. You’ve taken the baby steps but now it’s time to fully commit your every day to this next phase. Muster the courage and confidence to take the plunge by following THESE steps…[46:06].

Rank #7: EP138 - Author and Willpower Debunker, Benjamin Hardy: Willpower Doesn't Work

Podcast cover
Read more

Visualize your future self—what do you see? Are you more fit, healthier, more family-oriented, more career-focused—what’s the real change you wish to see in yourself? All too often we set personal goals and have the strong willpower to carry us through the first phase, but somewhere along the second and third, we lose our way. Benjamin Hardy, author and willpower debunker, is here to share proven strategies you’ll need to actually persist and defeat any future transformation.

Ben’s the number one writer on Medium.com since 2016. His newest book, Willpower Doesn’t Work (released in March) is already changing the view of willpower in the landscape. Ben’s currently pursuing his PhD in Industrial and Organizational Psych at Clemson University and his research focuses on the psychological difference between one of the entrepreneurs versus actual entrepreneurs, AKA, the dreamers versus the doers.

Renew your energy and your decision-making. Renew your visualized future.

Key takeaways:

The future glimpse. You’ve mastered a transformative period in your life, you’re soaring high, and you find yourself back in the environment in which you started. The temptation to go back to your old ways is seeping from everywhere. There’s hope! Try these TWO things to avoid backsliding to familiar grounds…[10:11].

The situational oversight. We live in a world where we’re bombarded with stimuli and endless options for any and every decision we need to make. And when you’re faced with decision overload you lose your control over the situation. Willpower isn’t strong enough to help you find your way, THIS is…[21:36].

The changing moment. There are two misconceptions out there that suggest that children are more adaptable than adults and that people never change. Imagine if they were wrong—oh, the possibilities! Learn this ONE lesson to debunk the misconceptions and believe in change at any age or situation...[33:41].

Rank #8: EP161 - Positive Psychologist, Professor, and Author, Dr. Itai Ivtzan: Awareness is Freedom

Podcast cover
Read more

What’s the story behind your decisions? Why do you decide yes to some things and quickly decline others? Do you even know why? The truth is, many of us are living limited experiences because we’re living in a limited self. Get ready to break down your barriers as Dr. Itai Ivtzan, positive psychologist, teaches you new meanings to happiness, fresh ways to tap into your authentic self, and how to understand the depth of your psychological/spiritual existence.

Dr. Ivtzan’s an associate professor at Naropa University and an honorary senior research associate at the University College of London. Over the past 20 years, he’s run seminars, lectures, workshops, and retreats all around the world at various educational institutions, as well as private events. Dr. Ivtzan’s a regular keynote speaker at conferences and has published several books, as well as many journal papers and book chapters covering his main areas of research in positive psychology, mindfulness, and spirituality. He’s confident that mindfulness and meditation have the power to change individuals--in fact, whole societies--for the better.

Awareness is freedom--happy discovery!

Key takeaways:

Combining your ground and sky. There’s a sincere beauty between a psychological and spiritual journey. One invites you to get to know the real you, while the other simply allows you to look at what you’ve uncovered and let it go so you can be open to what’s ahead. Get on board, your voyage awaits HERE…[05:18].

Riding your internal tidal wave. Will you do this or that? With every choice you make, there’s an undercurrent of the mind--with movement of sensations and realizations. More often than not, you’re not even aware of this psychological surge . . . but you should be. The ONE thing you need to tap into this well of inner wisdom is…[12:42].

Living your meaningful journey. When you wake up in the morning is there a reason you get out of bed? That makes your body say, “RISE!” Joy, zest, passion–so many incredible variables are at the heart of your psychological wellbeing--it’s time to let them free. The SECRET to unlocking your meaning and purpose is…[27:00].

Unearthing your deeper awareness. When you’re on this quest to peel back the layers--to get more in touch with your authentic self--where do you start? Should you try therapy, retreats, or simply talk to a friend? Start by asking yourself this ONE powerful question…[35:17].

Rank #9: EP169 - Social Psychologist and Author, Jonathan Haidt: Good Intentions and Bad Ideas

Podcast cover
Read more

With reports higher than ever of increased rates of depression and anxiety, how can we turn back the clock and teach new methods, new skillsets that’ll start to heal our youth? Jonathan Haidt, social psychologist and author, says the secret is in letting go.

Jonathan’s most current written work focuses on the dynamics that have been playing out in society. His research examines the intuitive foundations of morality and how morality varies across cultures. In his second book, The Righteous Mind, he explores the divide that's been occurring in politics and religion; and in Jonathan’s latest work--which he co-authored with Greg Lukianoff--called The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure, he looks at how those various patterns in politics, parenting, education, and justice are playing out on college campuses.

Jonathan’s a social psychologist at NYU Stern School of Business who received his PhD from U-Penn in 1992, and taught for 16 years in the department of psychology at the University of Virginia. Currently, he’s applying his research on moral psychology to business ethics--asking how companies can structure and run themselves in ways that’ll be resistant to ethical failures.

And while we’re learning how to build resilience and living more deeply, we’re excited to announce our upcoming three-day retreat, Uncover, led and facilitated by One Idea Away & iPEC Founder, and bestselling author, Bruce D Schneider. Join us in the beautiful Asilomar Conference Grounds, CA January 18-20th, or at the Garrison Institute, NY March 29-31st. Created to guide you through the uncover process, you’ll learn and experience a variety of mindfulness activities, how to connect as a community and more in a supportive, and yes, judgment-free zone. Close the gap of tension in your heart and mind and uncover a personal path to happiness, freedom, and self-actualization. Learn more at OneIdeaAway.com/retreat.

Your call to focus on the unconscious to release some control is here!

Key takeaways:

The coddling effect. There’s a rising epidemic in our youth where they’ve developed a black & white mindset--everything’s either good or terrible. With college debt and other personal struggles, there’s cause for their mentality, but what’s the real culprit? The simple ANSWER is . . . [11:38].

The protective challenge. Answer this question: “what age were you when you were allowed out of the house–alone?” 10? Six? Eight? For anyone above the age of 25, the response is between six-eight-years-old, but under 25, it’s ages 11-14. What does this mean? The EYE OPENING reveal at . . . [17:26].

The emotional barrier. Offensive words, symbols, and actions are everywhere. There’s no place to shield from it–from bathroom walls, to commercials, to songs–you’re bound to catch one fall through the cracks. Your interpretation of them is what’ll make or break you--so how do you build resilience? Give THESE ideas a try . . . [29:45].

The tribal conflict. There’s a group you’re born into, and for the most part, you’re deeply influenced by their racial, religious, and overall opinions. You can understand how such superiority could be damaging--so how can we turn this tribalistic nature around to benefit us all? The ONE lesson to learn . . . [37:02].

Rank #10: EP127 - Author and Clinical Psychologist, Dr. Robert Brooks: Unlock Your Full Potential

Podcast cover
Read more

There are a few things we can be certain of in life, and one of them’s mortality; but before we get to the end of our road, there’s a life to be lived -- one with battles and triumphs, and that’s hopefully meaningful and fulfilling. Listen in as Dr. Robert Brooks, a clinical psychologist at Harvard Medical School, shares his research and expertise on how you can create a gratifying life against all odds at any moment in your life.

Robert’s a former Director of Psychology at McLean Hospital. He has lectured both nationally and internationally and has written extensively on such topics as parenting and family relationships, balancing our personal and professional lives, positive school and work environments, and nurturing resilience in ourselves and others. Robert’s authored and co-authored 17 books including Raising Resilient Children, The Power of Resilience, Achieving Balance, Confidence and Personal Strength in Your life and his most recent book, Reflections on Mortality: Insights Into Meaningful Living.

Get ready to unlock your full potential to living a more meaningful, resilient life.

Key takeaways:

Transforming your outlook. What does a meaningful life look like to you? It’s a question that can keep you up at night. Your instinct’s to first focus on the negative in your life, but studies show there’s a whole different way to approach this question. Ready to give it a try? Ask yourself THIS to reveal its answer…[03:07].

Calling your champions. We watch their stories on the news, read about their grueling backstories, and even meet people who’ve faced such deep adversity in their past and still come out the other side FULL of optimism and hope – but how? Wonder no more! The ONE thing every survivor knows is this… [09:03].

Breaking your solitude. It can be a hard, lonely world out there. Full of unknowns, different personalities, and endless opportunities – sometimes the thought of reaching out can seem too overwhelming; but to create a meaningful, fulfilling life, it’s a must. Try these TWO things to get you started…[15:58].

Embracing your fate. Research has shown that building resilience starts when you wake up and feel that you can make a difference in the world. It’s the positive mindset that can liberate you. The same can be said about the reflection on mortality. Ask yourself this ONE question and be free of dreading the great unknown…[33:33].

Rank #11: EP178 - Scientist and Professor of Psychiatry, Dr. Stephen Porges: Understanding Why You Are Who You Are

Podcast cover
Read more

Who are you and what makes you whole? Do you have triggers such as sounds or scents that remind you of a familiar feeling? Why do you look at the world the way you do? So many of your questions can be answered by scientist and Professor of Psychiatry, Dr. Stephen Porges, whose current work is unlocking the ways we can see another side of ourselves--our truest form.

Dr. Stephen is a distinguished University scientist at Indiana University where he’s the Founding Director of the Traumatic Stress Research Consortium. He's a Professor of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina and Professor Emeritus at the University of Illinois at Chicago as well as the University of Maryland. Dr. Stephen has served as president of the Society for Psychophysiological Research and the Federation of Associations in Behavioral & Brain Sciences. He’s a former recipient of the National Institute of Mental Health Research Scientist Development Award.

Dr. Stephen has published more than 300 peer-reviewed articles and in 1994 he first proposed and pioneered the Polyvagal Theory, a theory that links the evolution of the mammalian autonomic nervous system to social behavior and emphasizes the importance of the physiological state in the expression of behavioral problems and psychiatric disorders.

Listen in and learn more about who you are--more now than ever!

Kay Takeaways:

Butterfly effect. Did you know we go through three evolutionary stages directly linked to those of vertebrates? To be clear, mammals are vertebrate and humans are mammals. The correlation between the two is eye-opening on how it affects your physiological state, let alone your health. Your THREE transformative stages are . . . [13:41].

Tranquility zone. Did you know that you have triggers that give you a sense of security? The sounds of certain music or someone’s voice are a couple of them. All your senses slowly drop, as do your defenses. There are simple ways to develop this sense of safety in ourselves and in others, start HERE . . . [25:34].

Connection boost. Did you know there’s no such thing as winning an argument? Once a person becomes physical--such as crossing their arms or retracting in some way--the conversation is over and therefore, the discussion is over. Winning isn’t an option. To strengthen any relationship–work, home, social–give these TWO evaluation methods a try . . . [39:44].

Podcast cover
Read more

In our fast-paced world, it’s all too easy to get wrapped up in the idea of success--the hunt for more and a bigger piece of the pie. But competition’s getting increasingly fiercer, and on this quest of achievement, we’re losing our connection with who we are, our purpose, and our way in the world. Today, Satish Kumar, former monk and long-term peace and environmental activist, spells it out simply: if you’re looking for fulfillment, look within and drop your idea of success. Sound impossible in our economic climate? Listen in and think again!

Satish has been quietly setting the global agenda for change for over 50 years. At age nine he left his family to join the wandering Jains, at 18 Satish decided he could achieve more back in the world, campaigning for land reform in India and working to turn Gandhi’s vision of a renewed India and a peaceful world into reality. His autobiography, No Destination was first published by Green Books in 1978 and has sold over 50,000 copies. Satish is the author of, You Are, Therefore I Am: A Declaration of Dependence, The Buddha and the Terrorist, Soil, Soul and Society, and the upcoming 2019 release, Elegant Simplicity. He’s on the advisory board of our future plan at the Unique Online Community, sharing ideas for real change, and in recognition of his commitment to animal welfare and compassionate living, he was also recently elected vice president of the RSPCA. Satish continues to teach and run workshops on reverential ecology, holistic education, and voluntary simplicity and is a much sought-after speaker both in the UK and abroad.

Your soulful awakening awaits and it’s well within your grasp!

Key takeaways:

Your simplistic future. Life’s filled with responsibilities and challenges that seem so beyond our control. Satish emphasizes that the only way to fight off this world’s complexity is through simplicity, but what does that look like? Your sustainable, bright future’s found in these THREE words . . . [15:30].

Your soulful quest. Our education system prides itself on cultivating our brains and thinking qualities. Knowledge is the key to success. But what if you turned your direction toward your heart instead of your mind--what life would that create for you? Where would it lead you? Fulfillment waits HERE . . . [18:50].

Your deep disconnection. We’ve missed the realization that ecology means knowledge of our home planet and economy means management of it. Without that understanding and respect, we’re living dangerously, on the verge of internal destruction--but there’s hope! May the healing process begin . . . [26:40].

Your life mission. You go to college so you can get a job, make money, and live a prosperous future--but does that job help you contribute to the world and bring you meaning? If the answer’s “no,” then you’ve got some work to do. The ONE question you must ask yourself daily . . . [33:43].

Tune in and turn the volume up for a dose of inspiration and life lessons. You're never more than One Idea Away from a whole, new reality.

Rank #13: EP185 - Author and Psychology Professor, Niobe Way: A More Connected, Healthier, and Happier You

Podcast cover
Read more

From the moment we’re born we’re physiologically built with an innate sense to feel connected–to our parents, our siblings, our world. It’s instinctual. So what happens when the world you’re born into or the one you’re raised in turns out to be dark and isolating? Niobe Way, Professor of Developmental Psychology at New York University, shares the research behind “bad people,” and a clear, viable solution on how to change our self-destructive culture.

Beyond being a professor, Dr. Way’s also the Founder of The Project for the Advancement of Our Common Humanity at NYU. From this project, Dr. Way emphasizes the Think and Do Tank that draws from the science of human connection in order to create a just and humane world. “Our theory of change is that transforming the way that we see each other will transform the way we treat each other,” says Dr. Way. Her work focuses on the intersections of culture, context, and human development with a particular focus on social and emotional development and how cultural ideologies influence developmental trajectories. Listen in as Dr. Way shares insight from her in-depth research and latest book, The Crisis of Connection.

A more connected, healthier, and happier you starts NOW!

Key Takeaways:

The universal issue. All too often we criticize ourselves for over-feeling, for not acting with our mind first. Nothing can feel more devastating than being rejected when you put yourself forward emotionally. But what does that do for us as a culture? The research says THIS . . . [13:48].

The simple solution. It seems that all around us people are living in despair. They’re lonely, they’re unfulfilled, and they’re depressed. But at the root of it all, the answer is clear. The ONE thing we need to focus on as a society, as a whole, is . . . [24:41].

The universal change. Our world’s struggling deeply with its need to connect. In every corner of every neighborhood, people are desperately reaching out to build relationships, to find unity. Dr. Way’s naysayers say changing a culture is really hard, but she boldly disagrees. HERE is why . . . [31:17].

Rank #14: EP120 — Professor, Author and Researcher, Chris Niebauer: Enlightenment Through Left-Right Brain Connection

Podcast cover
Read more

Ever notice that when you try to reduce stress and anxiety in your life, it seems to creep up even more? No, you’re not going crazy and it’s not all in your mind. It’s ACTUALLY happening. Chris Niebauer, professor, author, and researcher of left-right brain processing, is sharing the reality behind why it seems like your efforts are having the opposite effect of what you truly desire.

Chris received his Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuropsychology from the University of Toledo where he specialized in left-right brain differences. He has conducted research on consciousness, handedness, beliefs and the sense of self, and is currently an associate professor of cognitive psychology at Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania. Both Chris’s books, The Neurotic's Guide to Avoiding Enlightenment: How the Left-Brain Plays Unending Games of Self-Improvement, and his most recent, Catching up with the Buddha, reveal how the differences in the left-right brain can help us find our true sense of self as opposed to our ego-based identity.

If you’re ready to give up on self-improvement — listen first! Happiness IS possible and within your reach.

Key takeaways:

The Interpreter. You’re walking along and taking in your surroundings — the young man who must be a student (because he’s wearing a backpack) or the jogger who must be healthy (because she’s running at a quick speed) — the REAL reason behind why we categorize what we see and what it ACTUALLY means…[4:18].

The Ego. The left-brain’s connected to language and categorization whereas the right-brain connects with emotion and space. We need them both to function but which side takes over more? The answer will surprise you! The ONE thing that’s getting in your way of self-improvement…[13:03].

The Ruler. We’re living in a world of left-brain dominance where we’re giving language/words the utmost importance as well as identity. Society’s obsession with race, gender, and sexual orientation is causing uproar everywhere. The TWO major ways this left-brain authority is controlling our culture…[18:29].

The Buddha. Your left-brain wants you to win, to be right, to conquer. The right-brain wants you to embrace your emotions, connect with nature around you, and find peace of mind. Which do you think’s ACTUALLY better for you? Unlock your right-brain processing by trying THIS…[23:25].

Rank #15: EP168 - Founder of the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement, Scarlett Lewis: Choosing Love

Podcast cover
Read more

Nurturing. Healing. Love. Three powerful words that define compassion across all cultures--that when combined create a profound formula that can lead you to choosing love in any situation in your life. And these exact words were left behind-- written on a kitchen chalkboard--by Jesse Lewis, six-year-old martyr of the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting in December 2012.

In a nation riddled with climbing statistics of depression and anxiety among our youth, could nurturing, healing, love be the simple solution to avoiding future tragedies both big and small? Scarlett Lewis, (Jesse’s mom) who founded the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement after her son was murdered, shares her heroic journey, along with influential advice on choosing love in your darkest moments to inspire a more positive, healthy future for all.

Shortly after Jesse’s death, Scarlett decided to be part of the solution to the issues we’re seeing in our society that also resulted in this tragedy. She founded the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement and became an advocate for social and emotional learning--which teaches children how to manage their emotions, feel connected, and have healthy relationships. She’s been instrumental in changing legislation to incorporate social-emotional learning into our schools. The Jesse Lewis Empowering Education Act was introduced by Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal, and in December of 2015 Congress approved the Every Student Succeeds Act.

And while you’re learning about being intentional with choosing love and living more deeply, we’re excited to announce our upcoming three-day retreat, Uncover, led and facilitated by One Idea Away President, Luke Iorio, & iPEC Founder, and bestselling author, Bruce D Schneider. Join us in the beautiful Asilomar Conference Grounds, CA January 18-20th, or at the Garrison Institute, NY, March 29-31st. Created to guide you through the Uncover Process, you’ll learn and experience a variety of mindfulness activities, how to connect as a community, and more in a supportive, and yes, judgment-free zone. Close the gap of tension in your heart and mind and uncover a personal path to happiness, freedom, and self-actualization. Learn more at OneIdeaAway.com/retreat.

Your purpose to living a life more fully and lovingly awaits!

Key takeaways:

The hopeful lesson. The issues of bullying, suicide, and mental illness don’t end when kids graduate from school. They persist and even get worse into adulthood as they struggle to find connection with themselves and others . . . but there’s hope! Decades of research and the latest statistics have revealed a possible solution. A brighter future lies in THESE skills . . . [15:13].

The compassion train. In the wake of severe tragedy and heartbreak, how do you move forward? Scarlett says you must take your personal power back and cut the cord that attaches you to pain . . . but is it possible when it hurts so much? Without forgetting or turning a blind eye, learn THIS to let go peacefully . . . [21:29].

The brave choice. When you’re attacked--either vicariously or personally--it’s easy to remain frozen in fear. It’s instinctual for you to build a wall against the world and never want to let anyone in again. But there’s a better way, a healthier way, a healing way. The BRIDGE that brings you from fear to love is . . . [30:40].

The heartfelt movement. Anger starts with a thought. Joy starts with a thought. 70-80% of our tens of thousands of daily thoughts are negative, and although it’s intuitive--it’s changeable. Create the ripple effect to a safer, more peaceful and loving world with YOU. This ONE exercise can get you started . . . [34:30].

EP194 - Special Panel Discussion with James Garrett: Discover What's Possible at the Outer Edges of Brain Hacking

Podcast cover
Read more

Your brain has its own logic that doesn’t come with a user’s manual. It’s a system you have to figure out on your own. But when you start to unravel the mystery and dive in, you’ll discover a whole new you. A you that’s fully connected from your brain to your heart--one that’s more present in every moment and open to different possibilities. Lucky for you, brain coach and brain-hacker, James Garrett, is here to share how to tap into your neuroplasticity to make some real internal change.    

James is the founder of Brain By Design and lead adventurer behind the Deep Change Project. He’s spoken on stages ranging from Harvard to TEDx and The New York Times, while Fast Company and Harvard Business Review have featured his work. James spent years doing research with some of the best psychologists in the world at Columbia, Tufts, and Yale. With this unique combination of roles as a scientist, trainer, and entrepreneur, in 2019 James launched the Deep Change Project which is a year-long personal journey to discover what's possible at the outer edges of brain hacking and neuroplasticity. 

Discover the true potential of the human brain--listen in!

Key Takeaways:

Your long game. There’s a myth that we only use 10% of our brains. Neuroplasticity defies that myth and says your true potential uses all of your brain and unfolds over time. And if you’re looking for real, deep change in your life, know THIS first . . . [09:44].

Your learned skill. You’re in the middle of making a big change--like quitting a job because you know in your heart there’s something else out there--then, you start to doubt yourself. Slowly you have this sense like you’re headed down the wrong road. HERE’S what your inner voice is really trying to tell you . . . [20:43].

Your internal escape. James says, “Anxiety is future-oriented, fear is present-oriented.” Which are you more concerned with–the future or the present? What if there was a way to harness this impediment in order to fully evolve? The SECRET to your personal progress is . . . [33:25]. 

Your Deep Change Project. This is it. You’re ready to start the next version of yourself that consists of new habits, new perspectives, and living a life that allows you to embrace anything and everything that’s thrown your way. Your “change lab,” awaits HERE . . . [44:46].

Podcast cover
Read more

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? For many of us, we never became the firefighter, the pilot, the CEO; but it wasn’t because we didn’t really want to. So much of our passions and pursuits are clouded by the immense fear of failing (and more). Good news! While you may not be able to become the idol you once wished, you can befriend fear and make it work for you in helping you get “unstuck.”

Get to know what fear means to you to gradually become aligned with yourself and others--starting now! 

Key takeaways:

Your internal liberty. Ask yourself: what does freedom mean to you? Does freedom mean you have choices, that you live without limitations--or is it more physical? Can it be all of those things? Freedom could ALSO be . . . [07:21].

Your purpose, demystified. When you begin to question and wonder the purpose of your life, it’s an investigative journey that requires you to dig deep and begin to peel back the layers of who you are. The ONE question you must ask before you start your search . . . [17:09].

Your begrudged ally. Whether you want it or not, fear is biological. It kicks in when you’re in danger and gives you that internal motivation to spring into action. So why do we dread the idea of fear? Make fear your friend but learning THIS . . . [22:34].

Your hidden treasure. Ever feel you’re in the middle of an exciting experience like a much-needed vacation or enjoying a family event you’ve been looking forward to, and then you feel it–something’s missing? HERE’s how to decode what you’re overlooking . . . [46:04].

EP191 - Author, Psychotherapist, and Authenticity Architect, Dr. Patti Ashley: Finding Clarity Through Grief

Podcast cover
Read more

Joy and sorrow--they go hand in hand. But why does one seem easier and more comfortable to cope with than the other? And while grief can be extremely difficult to face and work through, psychotherapist and authenticity architect Dr. Patti Ashley is here to offer insightful life lessons to bring clarity in even the hardest moments of our lives.

Dr. Ashley’s also an international workshop presenter, author, and speaker who brings unique insight into the identification and treatment of trauma, shame, grief, as well as dysfunctional family patterns. Her signature model of authenticity architecture creates long-term changes in the brain as well as in the nervous system, breaking through barriers to personal freedom and authentic growth while excavating the truth of self-love, belonging, and connection. 

Dr. Ashley’s 35-plus-years of experience include: developing and teaching, continuing education courses for physicians, hospital wellness programs, university, and other private organizations. Her latest book, Letters To Freedom: From Fear to Love to Grace, is a beautiful, profound memoir of grief and relationship.

Get ready to rewrite your take on grief and see what it unfolds!

The heartbreak movement. We live in a culture that does everything possible to avoid and ignore grief. Too many feels! But what would happen if the next time tragedy knocked on your door, it was welcomed with open arms? Heartbreak’s surprising gift is THIS . . . [13:07].

The genetic insight. Did you know that each of us is carrying at least 14 generations of ancestral trauma in our DNA? It’s the key to why unconsciously we might try to avoid overall distress. So how do we evolve from deep traumatic roots before our time? The beauty unfolds HERE . . . [27:06]. 

The mindful takeaway. What is grace? Is it the moment where you find clarity--a sense of safety--where you relinquish control? Dr. Ashley says it’s all that and more. But how can we make ourselves more open to accepting grace in our lives? Remember this ONE life lesson . . . [43:59].

EP190 - Author and Leader in Mindfulness and Empowerment, HeatherAsh Amara: More Alignment Means More Joy

Podcast cover
Read more

Do you ever feel like you’re so busy with getting things done that you’ve forgotten why you started the journey, this particular path you’re on, to begin with? You’re not alone. The world these days seems less joyful and increasingly exhausted, but the answer lies in one word: alignment. HeatherAsh Amara, author and worldly professor, will help you not only restore your alignment but bottle it and store it for the winter months ahead. 

HeatherAsh is the author of The Warrior Heart Practice as well as many other books like The Warrior Goddess Training, A Little Book on BIG Freedom, Warrior Goddess Way, and Awaken Your Inner Fire.

Uncover the truth of what it means to live an authentic life! 

Key takeaways:

The seasonal submission. Have you ever noticed that seasons of the year resemble the different cycles of our life? Spring and summer are filled with birth and expression while fall is about letting go and winter revolves around stillness and going into the darkness. The SECRET to boldly stepping into the cold, dark months of your life is . . . [12:46].

The happy dilemma. Before we’ve learned how to speak we experience life in a whole new way–laugh without restriction, tantrum when things just don’t feel right, and lose ourselves in wonder. Then enters the influence of the world, and with it, its external rules. Not anymore! Break the cycle every single time by asking yourself this ONE question . . . [17:54].

The soulful question. How do you find a way to do more of what you love? So many of us seem depleted and overwhelmed in our busy modern world. But in those moments where we’re the most joyful, where time seems to fly, and we get a little lost–those are the moments, the fire we need to reconnect with. To do more of what you love, try THIS . . . [24:29].

The emotional refresher. Based on the four chambers of the heart, the first chamber revolves around asking yourself: what am I feeling? It’s a question that goes beyond your mental wellness and taps into your physical wellbeing. Sound simple? The ONLY thing you must remember to master the first chamber is . . . [30:00].

The archaeologist’s journey. Did you know there are layers to the stories you tell yourself? Given some continuous reflection, you’ll be able to organize your ‘layers,’ identify the actual situation you’re in, and base your story off of your experiences–and yours alone. Ready to give it a try? Start HERE . . . [38:40].

EP189 - Health Psychologist and Author, Kelly McGonigal: The Joy of Movement

Podcast cover
Read more

Did you know that moving as a collective--whether it’s in a fitness class, walking a marathon that honors the life of someone, or even hiking with friends--enhances a deep sense of belonging? It’s called the “joy of movement.” Health psychologist, Kelly McGonigal, shares her research and wealth of knowledge on how movement is the antidote to the modern epidemics of depression, anxiety, and loneliness that we often feel.

Kelly’s a lecturer at Stanford University and specializes in understanding the mind-body connection. As a pioneer in the field of Science Help her mission is to translate insights from psychology and neuroscience into practical strategies that support personal wellbeing and strengthen communities. Through the Stanford Center of Compassion and Altruism Kelly helped create the Stanford Compassion Cultivation Training, a program that’s now taught around the world to help individuals strengthen their empathy, compassion, and self-compassion. Kelly's a bestselling author of The Willpower Instinct and The Upside of Stress as well as the soon to be released Joy of Movement.

Your New Years' evolution starts NOW!

Key Takeaways:

Your courageous discomfort. Have you ever thought: I wish my life was a little more comfortable? More safe? More rewarding? Although very common, how we respond to those thoughts can cause extraordinary amounts of disconnection and missed opportunity for deep growth. But wait! There’s light in the darkness. The TRUTH is this . . . [12:02].

Your hidden superpower. Did you know there are proven studies that show knowing who you are is intimately connected to the feedback you get from your body all the time? You’re running fast, your body senses your heart pacing, you think, “I am free, I am powerful.” Oh, but there’s more! Start HERE to begin building a better, stronger self today . . . [16:38].

Your unknown connection. You might be familiar with the idea of runner’s high--where one feels good because their brain has an influx of ‘happy hormones”--but have you heard of endocannabinoids? They’re released alongside endorphins and what they can do for you is something much more powerful. Their SECRET power is this . . . [21:56].

Your subconscious battle. Sometimes you choose to eat healthy, other times you give in and indulge. One moment you’re connected with others, the next you’re locked up and isolating. Is there a way to be one way all the time? The answer is no; it’s human nature. Remember THIS the next time you’re having an internal struggle . . . [31:46].

EP188 - World Traveler and Certified Professional Coach, Matt Hogan: Be Transformed by Facing Fear Head-on

Podcast cover
Read more

How strong’s your self-awareness? Do you feel strongly about the life you’re living, as though you’ve faced any and all self-doubt and have risen to seeing your internal mission a reality--whatever that may be? If the answer isn’t an ecstatic “Yes!” then it’s time you listen up as Matt Hogan, certified professional coach, shares his real-life experiences and advice for looking fear head-on and becoming utterly transformed.

Matt's journey has had many, many different routes. During his teens to early 20s he struggled with drug addiction, fought destructive relationships, and ran through the legal system. He traded those substance abuse addictions for addictions to work and society's definition of success. Ultimately, after years of career achievement, Matt decided it was time to leave his job and lean into experiential pursuits; in other words, to live a purposeful life. Hear his journey, listen to his personal advice, and learn the steps you need to face your reservations that hold you back from living a more authentic life.

Your new self’s waiting--start the conversation today!

Key Takeaways:

The needed friend. We all need a support system--someone we can lean on who gives us a trusting and safe space to be vulnerable--but what if you don’t have that someone? May the hunt begin! When looking for your biggest champion, look for these TWO qualities . . . [10:17].

The needed change. You’re living the “onscreen” life where you’re in a committed relationship, you have a good-paying job, and your annual getaways make others jealous, but still it remains--the void; that feeling that something’s missing. When do you know it’s time to shake things up? When your life starts to look like THIS . . . [22:04].

The needed practice. Every now and then you imagine living a new life that’s vastly different--so much so that it overwhelms you and you just can’t stop thinking about it. How can you tell if the idea is actually meaningful enough to look into or simply another fleeting daydream that passes by? Try this EXERCISE . . . [36:41].

The needed lesson. So often we do the work on ourselves--therapy, meditation practices, breaking bad habits–but in the end, the world around us hasn’t changed one bit. Is there a way to shape our surrounding culture and better ourselves at the same time? Yes! The SECRET is this . . . [47:08].

The holidays are here! And so we’re asking you to reflect on this moment in your life. To look deep within that part of your soul that feels lost and has an endless list of questions for one reason–to do nothing. The truth is that in fighting the “in-between,” nothing truly gets resolved. Take a listen for how to live in the moment, even during the uncertainty of it all, and be better, more connected than ever.

Key takeaways:

Three step plan.

The BEST advice to tap into your unresolved mindset is this . . . [03:54].

The big question. As we near 2020 ask yourself, “what is it that the last year has brought to you? What are you grateful for? What is it that maybe you’re still struggling with? And although such questions really make you dig deep, the BIG question to ask yourself is . . . [06:12].

Your loving need. When most people long for one true love that will make everything just fall into place, they’re not really longing for companionship--it’s something much deeper and self-revealing. What they REALLY want is this . . . [06:35].

Your loving adjustment. The first noble truth in Buddhism describes how nothing in life is permanent. Everything changes; nothing stays the same–good or bad. It’s not a concept that’s new, so why is change so painful for us? The TRUTH is this . . . [16:14].

Your loving discomfort. It’s completely natural to have expectations. We live in a world where we expect people to be kind and honest to us--and why shouldn’t we? But how do you respond when your expectations are shattered? Next time this happens, turn it all around by asking yourself these TWO questions . . . [22:36].

Your loving embrace. Here’s what we know: the idea of love--the part where butterflies soar and everything is perfect--is fleeting. People change as well as your surrounding environments. So what’s the inside scoop for keeping that ‘magic’ alive in a relationship? The SECRET sauce is this . . . [36:59].

Tune in and turn the volume up for a dose of inspiration and life lessons. You're never more than One Idea Away from a whole, new reality.

EP186 - Psychiatrist, Educator, and Author, Dr. Amy Banks: Rewire Your Brain For Stronger, More Rewarding Relationships

Podcast cover
Read more

Did you know that our society’s currently facing an epidemic level of loneliness? And that lack of connection is clinically proven to trigger our sympathetic nervous system, leading to a death spiral to our health? Well--good news! Thanks to leading psychiatrist and educator in the field of human relationships, Amy Banks, hope is very much not lost.

Amy’s also a speaker and author dedicated to spreading the scientific knowledge that people need healthy, human relationships for emotional as well as physical growth and well-being. She’s the first person to bring relational, cultural theory together with interpersonal neurobiology and is the foremost expert in this combined field. She has spoken nationally and internationally on the neurobiology of relationships.

Amy's a popular interviewee on the topics of loneliness, friendship, and the neuroscience of relationship--having been quoted in the New York Times, O Magazine, Health Magazine, and more. Her very popular blog, Wired to Love, is published online in Psychology Today. Amy co-authored the book of Wired to Connect as well as authored Four Ways to Click: How To Rewire Your Brain For Stronger, More Rewarding Relationships.

Take a deeper look at your current relationships to be wiser and stronger for it, and then lead the way!

Key Takeaways:

Our cultural belief. In 1928 President Hoover described a true American as someone who could stand on his own two feet, one who was completely self-reliant. 91 years later we’re still trying to build ourselves up to this image, but why? How can we reverse the toxic trend in a healthy, confident manner? Start HERE . . . [07:06].

Our playground grief. Were you ever on the schoolyard and not chosen to be part of the team, excluded and hurt to be left out? Turns out that social pain could be more common and normal than you might think! Internally that rejection sets off an alarm in your brain and does some wondrous things. Next time you feel left out, try THIS . . . [25:09].

Our first connection. Are you someone who can easily connect with others on the first go? Or does approaching a stranger and getting to know them one of your deepest, darkest fears? If you’re the latter--you’re not alone! The REAL reason making new friends can be hard and terrifying is . . . [30:00].

Our healed self. Acceptance; inside us all, we deeply want it from others. Good news--despite what others might say, that need can be a strength, and with a little work, it can be easier to master than you might think. Leave it to neuroscience! The ONE-MINUTE technique that can help you find recognition is . . . [43:13].

EP185 - Author and Psychology Professor, Niobe Way: A More Connected, Healthier, and Happier You

Podcast cover
Read more

From the moment we’re born we’re physiologically built with an innate sense to feel connected–to our parents, our siblings, our world. It’s instinctual. So what happens when the world you’re born into or the one you’re raised in turns out to be dark and isolating? Niobe Way, Professor of Developmental Psychology at New York University, shares the research behind “bad people,” and a clear, viable solution on how to change our self-destructive culture.

Beyond being a professor, Dr. Way’s also the Founder of The Project for the Advancement of Our Common Humanity at NYU. From this project, Dr. Way emphasizes the Think and Do Tank that draws from the science of human connection in order to create a just and humane world. “Our theory of change is that transforming the way that we see each other will transform the way we treat each other,” says Dr. Way. Her work focuses on the intersections of culture, context, and human development with a particular focus on social and emotional development and how cultural ideologies influence developmental trajectories. Listen in as Dr. Way shares insight from her in-depth research and latest book, The Crisis of Connection.

A more connected, healthier, and happier you starts NOW!

Key Takeaways:

The universal issue. All too often we criticize ourselves for over-feeling, for not acting with our mind first. Nothing can feel more devastating than being rejected when you put yourself forward emotionally. But what does that do for us as a culture? The research says THIS . . . [13:48].

The simple solution. It seems that all around us people are living in despair. They’re lonely, they’re unfulfilled, and they’re depressed. But at the root of it all, the answer is clear. The ONE thing we need to focus on as a society, as a whole, is . . . [24:41].

The universal change. Our world’s struggling deeply with its need to connect. In every corner of every neighborhood, people are desperately reaching out to build relationships, to find unity. Dr. Way’s naysayers say changing a culture is really hard, but she boldly disagrees. HERE is why . . . [31:17].

EP184 - Business Anthropologist at the ADP Innovation Lab, Martha Bird: Become the Moving Center of Your Life

Podcast cover
Read more

It’s our human tendency to want connection and a shared purpose with those around us, but how do we find that place between personal and practical? Martha Bird, business anthropologist, shares her wealth of knowledge and experience to find connectivity on an individual level and with the world around you.

Since receiving her PhD in Anthropology, Martha has worked with global brands to create meaningful services, experiences, and products by both questioning and contextualizing the social and cultural dynamics of technology. She currently supports innovation and global product development to ensure future generations of ADP’s human capital management technologies and teach them the wisdom of human cultures. Plus, how everyday encounters can unfold new practices and transform the way that we work.

Martha’s a dedicated proponent of energetic curiosity while honoring reality. She approaches digital technologies as cultural and social products shaped by regional, technological, and organizational context.

Take the anthropological ride and learn how to become the moving center of the your life while celebrating the cultures around you.

Key Takeaways:

The rippling effect. You can turn on a light by a flip of a switch, you no longer use paper maps but Google Maps, and you can see what your friends are up to by scrolling their feed instead of calling them–small technologies used daily, constantly. But how does it all affect you on a core level? The eye-opening SURPRISE is . . . [07:03].

The mindful contradiction. Would you rather lead by wonder or fact? Martha defines herself as an openhearted pragmatist who can wander through life until she knows when she must buckle down hard on reality. Want to know her secret? The mystery starts HERE . . . [09:18].

The workplace boost. Looking for a way to feel engaged, acknowledged, and maybe even a little more respected at work? There’s a growing trend that Martha’s studying and trying to instill to break the cold, isolated work culture of the Western world. It comes down to this ONE word . . . [29:02].
