Nothing Is Impossible | An Interview with Tony Robbins and Peter Diamandis

Podcast cover
Read more

The moment you’ve been waiting for is here! Peter Diamandis and Tony Robbins together on the same stage, sharing their insights on life, happiness, and success. You won’t want to miss this interview, so tune in!

In this episode, you will…

  • Get the morning routines that set Tony and Peter up for success
  • Hear Peter share what’s possible when you go 10x’s instead of 10% bigger!
  • Understand that, although the brain is wired for survival, you can train it to seek happiness
  • Discover how to alter your perception of tribulation and use your experience to help others
  • Realize that, if you don’t make time for yourself, you don’t have a life

As humans, we’re programmed to expect suffering, and we learn to seek out stress, but it’s possible for you to develop habits and make lifestyle choices that help to rewire those instincts. No matter how much money you make or how much success you have, there’s no immunity from pain. It’s what you do with the pain and how you use it to help others that sets you apart. As Tony said, “You become something unique when you find a way to grow and you find a way to give.”

“Things are impossible until somebody does it.” – Tony Robbins

Today's podcast episode is something I'm beyond excited to share with y'all! (Note: I just moved to Austin, Texas last week so I'm practicing my "y'alls" to fit in a little better with the locals :^)
 
Seriously though, this episode may be THE single most important podcast I've ever recorded, because of the implications for all of us (individually) AND for the global impact that this could ultimately make for millions (possibly billions) of people. 
 
I mean we're literally talking about elevating the consciousness of the human race! 
 
Today my business partner and one of my best friends (yes, we're BFFs) Jon Berghoff and I finally reveal the LIVE experience that will bring together the world's most dedicated Miracle Morning practitioners for the first ever "Miracle Morning Mastery & Co-Creation Experience!" 
 
This is the first opportunity in history to both experience "Miracle Morning Mastery" (which will be led by myself, Jon Berghoff, and a team of world renowned experts in each of the SAVERS) while working together to literally create the future of the Miracle Morning Movement and how we will collectively impact billions of people around the world. 
 
To our knowledge, there is nothing quite like this experience that has ever been offered, and definitely not for The Miracle Morning Community!

The Single Most Important Skill for You to Master

Podcast cover
Read more

Regardless of your field, one of the most important skill sets to master is knowing how to effectively connect with, communicate with, and influence your clients. The formula I rely on for this – whether I’m selling, writing, or developing a podcast – is the Context Creation formula. This episode will give you the elements you’ll need to implement this strategy in your life immediately.

It’s changed a little bit over the years but I’ve narrowed the Context Creation formula to five major components:

1. ACK – Acknowledge Your Audience

2. ETW – Enter Their World

3. ENR – Enroll Your Audience

4. WIIFT – What’s In It For Them?

5. ETR + BVA – Earn The Right + Be Vulnerable and Authentic

ACK + ETW + ENR + WIIFT + [ETR+BVA] = Context Creation

“When you’re vulnerable, people fall in love with you.” – Jon Berghoff

208: Own the Day, Own Your Life - with Aubrey Marcus

Podcast cover
Read more

For the last two years, I’ve become a huge fan of Aubrey Marcus – podcast host, author, and the founder and CEO of Onnit, the leading supplement company for human optimization.

Within the first few minutes of hearing Aubrey’s podcast (two years ago) I felt an instant connection with him as a deeply thoughtful, highly evolved, and exceptionally brilliant individual – one who I could learn A LOT from – and I think you will too.

Aubrey recently released the book Own The Day, Own Your Life (available now for pre-order) - his personal manual for getting the most out of your body and mind on a daily basis. I’m about halfway through the book now, and I made significant changes to my daily routine – after reading just the first few chapters.

Today, Aubrey joins me on the podcast to talk about his book, how to flip the script when the voice in your head is telling you not to do something that’s good for you, and how we can set ourselves up for success in a world that doesn’t always have our health and well-being in mind.

216: Willpower Doesn’t Work - Author Interview with Ben Hardy

Podcast cover
Read more

Benjamin Hardy has been the #1 writer on Medium.com since 2016. He writes about self-improvement, motivation, learning, and entrepreneurship, organically receives over 1,000 new email subscribers daily, and works to help his readers live in alignment with their highest values and visions.

Last month, Benjamin sent me a copy of his new book, Willpower Doesn’t Work: Discover the Hidden Keys to Success. I started reading it immediately and was hooked. It’s phenomenal. Challenging everything we’ve been taught about what it takes to improve our lives, ourselves, and achieve our goals (hint: it’s not willpower), Benjamin enlightens us with a new paradigm that I believe is revolutionary in personal development.

Today, he joins the podcast to talk about the book, what it means to be 100% committed to anything you truly want to achieve, and the power of shaping your environment. If you’ve ever set goals and fallen short of them, this is a must-listen.

192: How to Harness the Power of Visualization to Achieve Your Goals Consistently

Podcast cover
Read more

As the founder of the Flourishing Leadership Institute, one aspect of Jon Berghoff’s job is to use visualization as a tool to create high impact solutions for organizations seeking revolutionary change.

Why that is important for you today is that these same principles can be applied on an individual level to completely shift how you think about achieving success in your own life.  

The conversation you’re about to hear (which originally aired on Rob Dial’s MWF Motivation Podcast) is a sneak peek into just how powerful visualization can be on achieving your goals.

Jon Berghoff will be teaching these visualization methodologies next month at this year’s Best Year Ever Blueprint [LIVE] experience. Click here to find out how you can join us and learn from Jon in-person!

Have you ever stopped and asked yourself why people (i.e. you and me) tend to work hard to accumulate stuff that we don’t really need?

Today’s conversation with Drew Canole will open your eyes to another way of thinking, being, and living. At one point, Drew was chasing everything for all the wrong reasons. The money, the stylish car, the big house and the fancy clothes — all of his goals were being driven by external factors. His fleeting approach to life lacked purpose and left him completely unfulfilled, unhappy, and 40lbs overweight.

By the way, although Drew is a leading influencer in the world of fitness, this discussion is not just about taking care of your physical health. In fact, Jon and Drew actually talk a lot more about strategies for managing your inner mental game, so you can further succeed in business and life. You'll recognize quickly that Drew wears his heart on his sleeve and the passion he has for helping others is sure to leave a lasting impression.

Drew brings so much value on the topics of mindset, finding purpose, and achieving your goals that we decided to cut this one into 2 parts so you can absorb it all without missing a thing!

KEY TAKEAWAYS
  • What growing up in Lake City, Michigan taught Drew about the person he wanted to become—What do you value and how are those values guiding your own life?
  • How Drew quit his finance job to start a world-class health and wellness brand that’s now inspiring 4.7 million people around the world.
  • How to use the power of “what if” to shift your mindset and transform the way you’re living your life.
  • That we’re all consciously connected to one another on a much deeper level than you may think.  
  • The revitalization routine that will unlock your level 10 performance!

265: How To Become Emotionally Invincible

Podcast cover
Read more

What if I told you that every destructive emotion you’ve ever felt, are feeling now, and will ever feel in the future is self-created by you and is completely optional?

What if I then taught you a way to immediately take complete control of your emotional well-being so that you never have to feel painful emotions again?

That’s what today’s episode is all about. If you can be in control of your emotional state from within, put yourself in a peak emotional state, and manage through the setbacks you face, you don’t just feel great about life - you become emotionally invincible.

Emotional invincibility is hugely powerful. It makes it that much easier to apply the Miracle Equation, and to truly enjoy every moment in your life. In today’s podcast - the fourth episode in my series about my upcoming book, The Miracle Equation: The Two Decisions That Move Your Biggest Goals from Possible, to Probable, to Inevitable - I dive deep into why it’s so hard to be at peace with all things. We’ll explore why you are the cause of your negative emotions and how to transcend them, and I’ll share with you my three techniques to implement emotional invincibility in your world.

234: How to Eat to Improve Health, Boost Energy & Live Longer

Podcast cover
Read more

Many people rely on multiple cups of coffee or products like 5 Hour Energy to get through the day. Far more of us choose not to prioritize our health until it becomes a serious issue - and one thing we often don’t think about is how the food we eat impacts our energy levels and resulting motivation (or lack thereof) throughout the day.

Today, I’m talking to you about how to change that in order to naturally feel more energetic and live a longer, healthier, happier life. By the end of this episode, I want you to start to choose foods based on long-term health consequences instead of just taste.

Along the way, I’ll share with you insights from my own eating habits, strategies to transform your overall diet, and how you can still eat yummy food for every single meal.

299: How We Can Transform Our Next Generation with Honorée Corder

Podcast cover
Read more

When I first published The Miracle Morning back in 2012, I was thinking small. I was committed to sharing the daily practice that changed my life, but I was only thinking I’d sell a few thousand copies. But then I started seeing a flood of emails and reviews from people about how the Miracle Morning had enabled them to make profound transformations in their lives, as well, so I committed to a bigger mission of changing millions of lives, one morning at a time.

Then, I met Honorée Corder. She was a bestselling author and strategic book coach whom had published dozens of her own personal development books. After getting to know her, I asked her if she’d partner with me to co-create the Miracle Morning book series. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Our next book in the series was just released on Monday. It is The Miracle Morning for Teachers, and I believe it’s one of the most important we’ve ever written, as it is already improving the lives of teachers and students around the world. This book is truly designed to elevate the consciousness of both TEACHERS and STUDENTS in order to make the greatest possible impact for our current and future generations.

Today, Honorée joins me on the podcast to talk about how we worked with dozens of teachers to create a version of SAVERS that works in the classroom, the ABCs of being a legendary teacher, and how you can help to elevate the consciousness of humanity - one teacher, and one student at a time.

298: How to Tap Into Your Happiness with Active Appreciation with Chip Franks

Podcast cover
Read more

As the name implies, the Thanksgiving holiday is generally a time to give thanks for everything that we’re grateful for – but is there more to it than that? Can there be more to your practice of gratitude than simply stating what you’re thankful for while you’re gathered around the dinner table this Thursday?

In fact, there’s a huge difference between passive gratitude and active appreciation. People who practice active appreciation don’t just experience greater happiness in life - they have the power to change their brains for the better.

Today, “Chief Miracle Worker” Chip Franks returns as our guest host to take you through the framework, exercises, and powerful quotes from thought leaders across history that inform his thinking. You’ll learn how Chip cultivates gratitude, active appreciation, and different techniques you can immediately apply to your own daily practice.

296: Exploring the Link Between Stress and Chronic Illness with Cort Davies

Podcast cover
Read more

Earlier this year, I accidentally FaceTimed a man named Julio. Julio had just raised approximately $80,000 on a GoFundMe for today’s guest, Cort Davies. At the time, I was in the process of starting a nonprofit that was to be called Support the Unsupported, and Cort was founding his own, doing exactly what I wanted to do.

His nonprofit, Conscious Cancer, helps cancer patients get the knowledge, holistic resources, and money to help them navigate the stress of bills they can’t pay. He’s also creating a documentary, which led not just to him filming at my house but to us having a long conversation about transitioning from chemo to holistic medicine.

Today, Cort joins the podcast to discuss how his cancer journey has reshaped his life and his relationship with chronic stress. You’ll learn how it gave him the power to become heart-centered, to live with compassion and empathy, and to kick major ass - and how he’s working to help others do the same.

BONUS: A Major Announcement and How to Make Difficult Decisions

Podcast cover
Read more

In order for me to focus on my health (as I’m transitioning from chemotherapy to holistic treatments), I’ve recently had to make some very difficult decisions. On today’s special *BONUS* episode of the podcast, I’m sharing the biggest decision I’ve recently made—a HUGE announcement—and (most importantly) the process by which you can more easily and effectively make major decisions in your life. As a fellow human being, you know how much energy it takes to make decisions, no matter how simple they are. But when you’re facing a MAJOR decision—the kind that isn't black and white, where you might have multiple options, and where your actions could affect your life for months (or years) to come—making the right decision is often challenging. One of these decisions (which you’ll hear about in this episode), means that the upcoming Best Year Ever [Blueprint] live experience (taking place this December 13-15th) will be the last time we ever offer this event.

If you’ve ever wanted to join me in person at the Best Year Ever [Blueprint] live experience, taking place this December 13-15th, this will be your last chance. This is the last time we’re offering the event, and it’s nearly sold out. In case you’re not familiar, BYEB is a weekend event that will enable you to take your SELF to the next level so that you can take your LIFE to the next level—because, as you know, it only happens in that order! :^) Every year, 400+ members of The Miracle Morning Community (from around the world) fly into San Diego, California and come together to connect and co-create our future, together. And I’d love for you to join us! Check out the brand new website at BestYearEverLive.com to get all the details and secure your spot for what is guaranteed to be another life-changing weekend for all of us.

294: Unscripted: The Pursuit of Life, Liberty and Entrepreneurship with MJ DeMarco

Podcast cover
Read more

At some point or another in our lives, we’ve probably been told that if we follow our passion, success will follow. However, if you’re an entrepreneur, wantrepreneur, or have friends with struggling businesses, you can probably think of more than a handful of experiences that prove that saying wrong.

Few understand this better than MJ DeMarco. He’s the founder of The Fastlane Forum, a global business community featuring nearly 40,000 entrepreneurs, and Limos.com, a startup he built and grew into a profitable multimillion-dollar company with no money, no formal training, and only a few employees. He’s also the international bestselling author of The Millionaire Fastlane, one of my favorite financial books of all time.

However, before he became a self-made millionaire, he had to try, fail, and ultimately find a way to bring passion to a product that the market truly needed. In his new book, UNSCRIPTED: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Entrepreneurship, he writes about how to build a business that leaves you feeling inspired and fulfilled in addition to paying the bills.

Today, MJ joins the podcast to talk about why the established American narratives about creating wealth are complete garbage, how money can help you do what you love, and how to break free from the cycle of stress, debt, and frustration trapping so many of us in jobs - and businesses - that sap our passions.

If you’re reading this, there’s an 80+% chance that you’re an entrepreneur or someone who’s considering launching a business. However, whether you’re a seasoned entrepreneur or a wantrepreneur, today’s conversation with Cameron Herold is a must-listen.

In addition to being my co-author for The Miracle Morning for Entrepreneurs, as well as the author of Double Double, Meetings Suck, and Free PR, Cameron is known around the world as the “business growth guru.” He has helped hundreds of companies achieve exponential growth and is one of those rare individuals who knows how to present his extensive knowledge and experience in a clear and effective way.

Today, Cameron joins the podcast to discuss his journey into entrepreneurship, why running a business is much more about who to do things with than how to do things, and why he can almost always identify an entrepreneur in a crowd - even if he’s never met them before.

292: The Only Skill That Matters with Jonathan Levi

Podcast cover
Read more

If you’ve listened to the podcast for a while, you’ve probably heard me say that it’s not what you learn that really matters - it’s what you live that ultimately impacts your life. 

Why? It’s simple: if you don’t apply what you’ve learned, it doesn’t do you much good. 

However, the irony is that how you live begins with what you learn. We can only live a better life to the degree that we learn what exactly that looks like, and what it takes to live it. 

Few people know this better than Jonathan Levi, author of the new book, The Only Skill That Matters, which explores the reasons and methods surrounding learning and memory - and will teach you how to learn anything three times faster. 

Jonathan is a serial entrepreneur, author, and podcaster. Born and raised in Silicon Valley, he’s the face of  SuperHuman Academy and the author of Become a SuperLearner.

Jonathan and I have known each other for over 20 years, and we recently reconnected when he had me on his SuperHuman Academy Podcast. Today, he joins the podcast to discuss the learning struggles he faced in his youth and the life-changing breakthrough he experienced, why improving your ability to learn is about much more than being able to impress people at parties, and actionable steps and processes you can take to live your learning.

291: Understanding How Intimacy Impacts ALL Areas of Your Life with Allana Pratt

Podcast cover
Read more

When most people think of “intimacy” it’s usually related to physical affection, sex, or romance. However, intimacy impacts a lot more than that—it’s also crucial to effective parenting, entrepreneurship, and our relationships with ourselves.

Few understand this better than intimacy expert Allana Pratt. She has served as a Guest Expert on The Jenny McCarthy Show, The Huffington Post, People, Forbes, CBS, TLC and FOX. She’s also the author of (4) books, the host of the Intimate Conversations podcast, and a go-to authority with over 4 million viewers on YouTube, where she helps her followers create healthy, thriving relationships with themselves first in order to naturally attract their ideal match.

Jon Berghoff and I met Allana at a couples’ retreat, where she led several powerful experiences. I saw her enable people (including me and my wife) to quickly increase our self-awareness and discover deep and important things about ourselves, which is exactly what the Best Year Ever [Blueprint] live experience is all about where Allana will be one of our speakers this year.

Today, Allana talks with Jon Berghoff about the exercises she’ll be leading at our BYEB event in San Diego this December. You’ll learn how to rediscover (and accept) your authentic self, see your blind spots, and make huge strides on your journey to becoming a compassionate badass.

Jeremy “Brotha James” Reisig isn’t just one of my favorite people. He is a world-class musician unlike any other, making music to help elevate your consciousness, enhance your mindset, and improve your life. There are very few “conscious” musicians, and Brotha James was the first I’d ever heard.

289. The Most Important Personal Development Practice with Chip Franks

Podcast cover
Read more

If you practice The Miracle Morning (and specifically the S.A.V.E.R.S.), I think you’re going to love today’s *special* episode of the Achieve Your Goals podcast!

Today, we’re doing something a little different. Instead of our usual podcast format—where our guests talk about how they achieved their goals and how to get more done—I’m giving the floor over to my good friend and Chief Miracle Worker, Chip Franks, for a training and tutorial to help you get the most out of your Miracle Morning “Scribing” (aka “Journaling”) practice.

Among many things, Chip has one of the most effective Scribing practice I’ve ever seen. Though he goes through almost 250 pages in his journal every month, he rarely spends more than about 15 minutes a day scribing. He believes that it is the most important personal-development practice that exists and a powerful way to turn ideas into action.

Chip also journals to deal with anxiety and overwhelm, have a conversation with himself, and become an objective third-party with himself when he needs it the most.

Today, Chip joins the podcast to share 10 techniques to optimize your Scribing practice. I’d love to see you commit to giving the ones that make sense for you a try - and see how scribing can change your life for the better.

286: Putting the Mystery Back in Miracles with Dr. Sean Stephenson [REPLAY]

Podcast cover
Read more

I’ve got some sad news, which you may have already heard. One of the most inspirational people I’ve ever met, Sean Stephenson – known around the world as the “3 Foot Giant” – passed away last week, after a wheelchair accident.

Sean dedicated his life to helping people, and I was blessed to know him as a friend and mentor. Today it is my privilege to share some of his inspiration with you by giving you an opportunity to listen to the last interview that he and I did together.

Because of a rare bone disorder, Sean was predicted not to survive at birth. In fact, he’d suffered over 200 fractures by the time he turned 18.

However, Sean has survived, thrived, and lived a life that has inspired millions around the world. He’s appeared on Oprah and Jimmy Kimmel Live, has online videos with 10+ million views, been the subject of a TV series for A&E called 3 Foot Giant, and published a book titled Get Off Your But: How to End Self-Sabotage.

Podcast cover

So, what is the purpose of life? Today, I want to help you answer that question by asking you to consider a couple of others:

What if the purpose of life isn't about achieving or attaining anything? What if you already have the most important thing you’ve been searching for?

I want to help you to discover the true purpose of your life and realize that you may already have what you’ve been searching for, for your entire life.

283: Why “Burning Your Boats” is Terrible Advice with Tim Grahl

Podcast cover
Read more

According to legend, Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés issued a rather interesting order to his men as they began their conquest of the Aztec empire in 1519. The order was simple: Burn the boats. He wanted his men to realize that they had no opportunity to retreat, so they had to give this fight everything they had. Failure was no longer an option and winning this battle just became that much more important. There is much debate about the legitimacy of this story, both in reference to the true intentions of Cortés and whether the actual burning took place at all. However, regardless of the accuracy in this particular case, this phrase “Burn your boats” has become popular advice in the context of business and success. In today’s episode, my friend and best-selling author, Tim Grahl, and I discuss why burning your boats may be the wrong strategy and one you want to avoid, and then we share what we believe will be a much better approach for your to take your success to the next level and beyond.

282: Why Human Nature is the #1 Obstacle Holding You Back (and How to Overcome It)

Podcast cover
Read more

Do you know what’s standing in the way of creating and experiencing everything you want for your life? The answer might surprise you.

Our cavemen and cavewomen ancestors were biologically programmed to do two things: survive and rest. Our agenda back then was simple: hunt and gather food so that we could sustain life, find shelter, and rest until we needed more food to eat or a new shelter to rest under. We were NOT, however, designed to achieve, to get ahead, or to be successful.

So, to this day human beings unconsciously abide by our inborn human nature, and it prevents us from creating and experiencing what we deeply want to create and experience in our lives.

On today’s podcast, I share raw, unfiltered thoughts and powerful, life-changing information that can help you transcend your innate human nature (that is holding you back). You’re also going to learn about how society conditions us to want things that don’t make us happy, why you’re always going to be drawn toward taking the path of least resistance, and how to overcome the laws of the universe to do what we need in order to create everything you want and deserve.

281: From Homeless and Addicted to Drugs to Transforming Lives with Mark Crandall

Podcast cover
Read more

Long before Mark Crandall became a member of the Quantum Leap Mastermind program that I recently told you about, he was a lost young man with countless traumatic experiences. He spent time in jail, was a drug addict, and carried an underlying self-hatred.

He’s since transcended his adversity and become keynote speaker, licensed master social worker, chemical dependency counselor, clinical interventionist, the author of Embrace Your Past, Win Your Future, host of two podcasts, and a highly sought after clinical interventionist.

At our last Quantum Leap Mastermind (QLM) retreat, I saw Mark do powerful, transformative work in real time, and it’s truly an honor to introduce you to him.

Today, he joins the podcast to share how he uses his life to hold a mirror up to those who need it the most. He also shares the belief system he uses to find opportunities to do more, and what you can do to leverage your trauma to live a life in service.
