Everything here is Tim Ferriss’s original idea. Best to keep listening to Tim. He even copies his rapid fire questions. Poor interviewer w nervous laugh. I am not convinced he does all the hacks he recommends- which lacks credibility and authenticity. I signed up for his speed demon class- his annoying marketing finally got to me.

Rank #1: Ep. 63: Understanding "Nutritarian" Eating w/ Dr. Joel Fuhrman

Podcast cover
Read more

Today, I’m joined by an internationally recognized nutrition expert, board certified family physician, New York Times bestselling author, and nutritional researcher Dr. Joel Fuhrman, who specializes in preventing and reversing disease through nutritional and natural methods. And yes, those are all one person.

You may have read one of his multiple bestselling books, from Eat to Live, to Super Immunity, or The End of Diabetes. But that’s just a few. He’s also published The Eat to Live Cookbook, and The End of Dieting, all of which are bestsellers.

He’s also the father of "nutritarian" eating, and has a special equation for longevity in health, which he’ll be telling us about throughout the interview.

In this episode, we talk all thing nutrition, and Dr. Fuhrman presents a view that is somewhat contradictory to that of many of our previous guests.

Podcast cover

Today, we are joined by Jeff Sanders, the public speaker and author behind the Amazon Bestseller, The 5AM Miracle.

I know what you’re thinking - 5AM is really early - but stay with me, because morning rituals are really interesting and important.

In this episode, we’re going to learn how you can better dominate your day by hacking mornings to work in your favor - before you even have breakfast.

As someone who has really been struggling recently to get out of bed before 7AM, and who, to be completely honest, has been struggling to stay productive past 1pm, I was really interested in learning some strategies for hacking mornings and creating more effective days. As you guys know, I’m a huge fan of learning any productivity related hacks I can get my hands on, so I was really excited to dive into this episode.

Rank #3: Ep. 203: The Science & Magic Of Lucid Dreaming W/ Charlie Morley

Podcast cover
Read more

Greetings, SuperFriends!

You should know that I’m really excited because I enjoyed this episode so much! You’re going to see, or I should say understand, why…

Well, today we are joined by Charlie Morley. Charlie is a best-selling author and teacher of lucid dreaming and shadow integration. Now, if you don’t know what lucid dreaming is, it is having dreams where you know you’re dreaming, but not just that – in lucid dreaming, you can also control your dreams.

As I learned, lucid dreaming is a lot more than flying, skydiving, and doing other fun stuff – it’s actually a deep spiritual practice that you can use for psychological recovery, accelerated learning and for much more.

In fact, Charlie was actually “authorized to teach” within the Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism by Lama Yeshe Rinpoche in 2008, and has since developed a holistic approach to dream work called “Mindfulness of Dream & Sleep”. He has also written three books which have been translated into 13 languages!

He’s spoken at Cambridge University, The Houses of Parliament, and he is a regular expert panelist for The Guardian. In 2018 he was awarded a Churchill Fellowship grant to research “mindfulness-based PTSD treatment”. Charlie also runs workshops, lectures all over the world, and, as you’ll see, he’s an absolutely awesome guy.

I so enjoyed this interview and I learned so much about lucid dreaming, which I thought I knew a fair bit about. Well, I didn’t. I’m also very excited because Charlie and I talked after the show, and we actually decided that we are going to do a 30-day challenge around lucid dreaming, where he will coach a select group of listeners into lucid dreaming and how to actually use it to make an impact to their life. If you want to learn more about that and get involved in the challenge, you can go to https://jle.vi/mastermind.

Now, without any further ado, let me introduce you to my lucid dreaming SuperFriend, Charlie Morley.

Podcast cover

Today we are joined by Noah St. John, author of 15 books, including the new book Power Habits®️: The New Science for Making Success Automatic®️. Noah is known as "The Power Habits®️ Mentor", and is famous for helping people get rid of their head trash and make more money and have more satisfaction in life.

Noah is also the ONLY author in history to have works published by Hay House, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Mindvalley, Nightingale-Conant, and the Chicken Soup for the Soul publisher. He also appears frequently in the news worldwide, including ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, Parade Magazine, Entrepreneur.com, and The Huffington Post.

I really enjoyed this conversation. I think there are so many valuable nuggets that Noah has to share. Unfortunately, we didn't get them all out of him today because we ran out of time, but I think you'll really enjoy this conversation.

In the episode, we talked about success. We talked about limiting beliefs. We talked about some of the concepts that Noah has identified in his journey, working with people, and what really stops people from succeeding  (whatever that means to you) to the extent that they want to.

Enjoy!

Rank #5: Ep. 53: How to Change Your Life & Be A Total Badass w/ Jen Sincero

Podcast cover
Read more

Today’s guest, is a total badass. Actually, she wrote the book on being a badass. No… seriously, though.

She’s the NYT bestselling author of “You are a badass: How to stop doubting your greatness and start living an awesome life,” and a bunch of other books, including one interesting titled “a straight girls guide to sleeping with chicks." With titles like that, coaching clients who themselves have gone on to become new york times bestsellers, an upcoming and much anticipated podcast, and features in the new york times, HBO, bloomberg, and O magazine, I just had to get her on the show while I still could to share some of the badassness with us.

In this episode, we discuss a really broad range of topics, from discovering your life’s passion, to the value of coaches and how to find a good one, to the perks of travel for personal development, and even tips on how to maximize your income. My guest is an absolute wealth of positive energy and inspiration, and I just know this episode is going to knock your socks off.

Rank #6: Ep. 102: Gary Taubes: How Bad Science Made The World Obese

Podcast cover
Read more
This week, we are joined by a New York Times bestselling author who’s books you’ve almost certainly heard of: Why We Get Fat and Good Calories, Bad Calories. Way before the “Paleo” movement took off in a meaningful way, our guest today was one of the early opinion leaders to promote the idea that not all calories are the same - and that the idea of just “eating less” regardless of what you eat is fundamentally flawed.   Though we have covered diet and nutrition quite a bit on the show, it’s such a central aspect of optimal performance that it bears further investigation and occasional repetition.   Throughout the episode, we take a really deep dive into not just nutrition, but also how it came to be that everything the average person knows about nutrition is fundamentally wrong. We learn how this misinformation has persisted, why it has been so detrimental, and how things are starting to change all over the world. We talk about paleo nutrition, common dietary misconceptions, and a criticism of bad science. All in all, I think you’re going to take away a lot from this episode - I certainly did.

Rank #7: Ep. 86: David Heinemeier Hansson: An Interview With A Real-World SuperLearner

Podcast cover
Read more

Today we are joined by a real-life superhuman - a man who has risen to prominence in not just one, but two extremely competitive arenas.

David Heinemeier Hansson, better known as “DHH,” is a software developer, entrepreneur, and race-car driver from Denmark.

He’s most known for his company, Basecamp, and for developing the popular Ruby on Rails web development framework that has taken the world of web development by storm. In 2005, he was recognized as “Hacker of the Year” by Google and O’Reilly. He’s written a slew of books on software development, and 3 very popular books on building and managing software companies: Getting Real, Rework, and Remote.

If that weren’t enough, David has also had a meteoric rise to prominence in the world of auto-racing, climbing through the ranks and coming in among the top spots in what many would call record time.

In this episode, I wanted to deconstruct David’s thinking process and figure out how he learns so much so effectively. I wanted to understand how he has managed to be so successful in two entirely different worlds, and see what tips he had to offer to anyone looking to live a life as diverse as his.

We talk about how he manages his time, but more than that, we take a deep dive and deconstruct his entire learning methodology in depth, flow, habits, happiness, goals, and how David has spent decades deconstructing and analyzing his own performance from every possible angle.

Quite honestly, I can say without exaggeration that this is one of the absolute BEST episodes we’ve ever done.

Throughout this episode, we talk about confidence, self esteem, fear, relationships, and much, much more. You’ll clearly see that years of interviewing, writing, reading, and learning has turned Justin into a jack of all trades when it comes to personal development, and so what’s really nice about this episode is that it hits the high notes of a TON of different areas of life. I think you’ll really going to enjoy it and learn a lot!

Rank #9: Ep. 139: How To Re-Wire Your Brain For Optimal Fitness & Nutrition w/ Drew Logan

Podcast cover

Today we are joined by Drew Logan. You've probably heard of him - he's a renowned fitness expert, celebrity trainer, and a television star.

But actually, we go through something much more kind of interesting and rare in the beginning of the episode, which is that Drew died. Three times. He is the only known survivor of three consecutive sudden cardiac arrests. Doctors don't know why it happened. They don't know if it'll happen again. And living with that has given drew a really unique mindset and really unique approach to life.

Drew is known for his fitness approach, 25 days, which deals a lot with habit and mindset. And in this episode, we talk about how all that works and how he has created a proven program to rewire your brain, stop weight gain, and finally crush the habits you hate forever. His book will be coming out in September, which if you're listening to this at release, is probably right now. And he sure has a lot of really valuable stuff to offer.

In this episode, we’re going to dive deep - really deep - into how you can actually optimize your sleep from a practical perspective, as we host the man responsible for making sure the world's best athletes are sleeping properly - Nick Littlehales. We’re going to learn how to set up your sleep environment, when it’s best to sleep, which positions are healthier, how much is enough, how to troubleshoot sleep issues, and what factors make the biggest difference. Just to give you guys a fair bit of warning, it’s a rather a long interview, and we do take a little while to warm up and get into the groove of things. We spend probably about 25 or more minutes just talking about how to identify your sleep needs and the type of mattress and pillows.... So yeah, when I say we go deep, I really mean it. Stay the course and listen through to the end, though, because we cover a ton of ground in the second half of the episode, and there are a number of surprising takeaways and bits of homework that could dramatically impact the quality of your life.

Rank #11: Ep. 242: Nir Eyal On Defeating Distractions The Right Way And Becoming Indistractable

Podcast cover
Read more

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Nir Eyal, an author, speaker, and thought leader. Nir writes, consults, and teaches about the intersection of psychology, technology, and business. Actually, the MIT Technology Review dubbed him the prophet of habit-forming technology after his last book Hooked went supersonic and became a best-seller in pretty much every place you can imagine.

By the way, many people don't realize that Nir has also founded 2 tech companies since 2003, he's taught at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford, and he's invested in a whole bunch of incredibly successful companies like Worklife, Product Hunt, Refresh.io and Eventbrite, in addition to many more. You've probably also seen his writing in HBR, Techchrunch and Psychology Today.

Wow! So, why have someone who is an expert in technology - and habit-forming technology at that - on the show. Well, actually Nir and I have intersecting interests besides the fact that we are both children of Israelis and Hebrew speakers. Nir has recently written an all-new book, which is called Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life. Now, as many of you already know, I've recently invested a ton of time working with an expert in my life to create a Digital Zen course and help people figure out how they can put control and controls back on their technology use and get their life back in order, digitally speaking.

I was really excited to pick Nir's brain and learn more. I have to say that, before we hopped on the interview, I asked Nir what would make this a huge success for him, and he had a really untraditional answer. Most guests answer that having a great conversation on the topics they are passionate about is what they are looking for, but Nir answered: "If I blow your mind or completely change the way you see an aspect of life, that'll be a huge win for me" - and I have to say that he did not disappoint.

I really enjoyed this conversation, and I can guarantee you will enjoy it as well!

Rank #12: Ep. 100A: What I've Learned From Interviewing 100 SuperHumans

Podcast cover
Read more

Greetings, SuperFriends, and welcome to a very special episode of The Becoming SuperHuman Podcast... Our 100th episode!

Can you guys believe that it's been a HUNDRED episodes?

When I first started out, I wasn't sure if I was going to make it to 10. And when I listen back to my first few episodes, the absolutely cringeworthy performance I gave makes it all the more impressive that you guys have stuck with me this far.

For our 100th episode, I wanted to do something a little bit special. You see, at the beginning of every episode, we promise to give you the skills and strategies to overcome the impossible. For the most part, I feel that we deliver on that promise every single week. Though, with 100 episodes, it can be hard to keep track of all of the takeaways we've offered on the show. Even I, who records the episodes and then listens to them after they've been edited, lose sight of all the nuggets and hidden gems that come out over the course of time.

That's why, for this special episode, I want to revisit each episode, and offer you the top 1-2 takeaways that I personally remember from each one. I'll tell you why I think that each one is important, and how it has affected my life. At the end, I'll also let you know my top 10 favorite episodes, and the top 10 books that guests have recommended.

Let me say, guys, that this was quite easily the most difficult, grueling episode to produce. I spent countless hours over the last few MONTHs digging through all of the incredible ideas, quotes, books, talking points, and takeaways that we've shared over the last 2 years. Even with speed reading and memory techniques, it was a hell of a lot of information to go through, and ultimately, a lot of major stuff had to be left out. For this reason, I want to encourage you guys to check out and listen to - or re-listen to - any episode that piques your interest. You just may want to listen to this one with a pen and paper in hand. Either way, I hope you enjoy this very condensed summary, catch a few things you didn't know, and recall a few things you'd maybe forgotten over the last year or two. I know I did.

This week, I’m happy to host another lifestyle entrepreneur who, like myself, is focusing his time and energies on teaching productivity, memory, and accelerated learning. Like me, he has chosen to live outside his home country, and runs a blog and podcast, called Master of Memory. Like me, he’s teaching courses online that help you learn faster and memorize more. He also has a company and a podcast called Ace Productivity where he focuses on productivity hacks to help you get more out of your time. On top of all of this, he also shares my passion for lifestyle design and travel… So, of course, with so much in common... I was really excited to sit down and talk to him and compare notes!

In this episode, we talked about productivity, accelerated learning, lifestyle design, and much, much more. We actually go into some very unique tricks for language learning that actually kind of blew my mind in the level of detail and clarity that they offer. You’ll learn how to hack grammar using memory palaces, how to memorize maps, how to look at life more productively, and a lot of other super fascinating stuff.

This episode does build a little bit on our previous memory related episodes with Dr. Anthony Metivier and Nelson Dellis, so you should make sure to listen to those either before or after this one, if you haven’t already.

Today we’re joined by Alex Charfen, a serial entrepreneur who has has spent his life seeking to understand how to make business grow - a question that eventually evolved into wondering: “How do you help people grow?”   Through his research and years as a top consultant to billionaires, the Fortune 500 and global 100, Alex discovered what he calls the long-misunderstood Entrepreneurial Personality Type (EPT). Best-selling author Robin Sharma recently described Alex as, “the most progressive entrepreneurial mind on the planet” - and for good reason. Since the tender age of 8, Alex has been starting, growing, and selling businesses, and teaching tens thousands of people all over the world how to do the same. He is even a regular contributor to The Wall Street Journal, MSNBC, CNBC, FOX News, and USA Today.   As you guys know, we don’t often talk entrepreneurship on the show, focusing more on health and fitness. Well, Alex has some important things to say about that, as well. But more importantly, I think that this episode fits into an important area of reaching one’s true, superhuman potential: financial freedom and life balance. Entrepreneurship may or may not be for you, but either way, you’re going to take away some amazing lessons from Alex and everything he has to say, which ranges from entrepreneurship advice, inspiration, motivation, health, and even tips to create a better romantic life…   In fact, this episode got deeply personal, and at one point Alex launched into full-on coaching mode, turning the mic back on me and coaching me through one of my biggest struggles at the moment. Although it was a huge moment of vulnerability that I think a lot of people wouldn’t broadcast to thousands of people all over the world, I decided to leave it in, because I think there’s a lot of value and applicable takeaways there… Let me know on twitter or via email what you guys think.

You see, today I interviewed the CEO of a company called brain.fm, Daniel Clark. Some of you may have heard of them, seeing as they are creating scientifically-backed music that elicits specific states in the brain...

So, I wanted to figure out not just how this works, but why it works, and how we can leverage this new technology to improve our lives.

This turned out to be a far-ranging conversation. Dan and I really hit it off, and we just went into all the geeky things he and I both do to optimize our performance.

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Scott H. Young. Scott is a writer who undertakes interesting self-education projects, such as attempting to learn MIT’s four-year computer science curriculum in twelve months and learning four languages in one year. His recent book, Ultralearning: Master Hard Skills, Outsmart the Competition and Accelerate Your Career is published by Harper Business August 6th, 2019, the exact same date that this episode came out.

I wanted to have Scott on the show because for many years I've been following his work - I think that the way he approaches learning challenges is super interesting. We obviously share the same interests and passions - in fact, we are both publishing a book around the same time.

I actually pushed my book's launch back for a month because Scott told me that he is publishing now, and we thought it's a better idea for both of us to have a fair margin of time between the two launches. Scott is one of the few people I respect so much that I'm willing to delay my book's launch for.

I wanted to bring Scott on the show to learn how we are similar in our beliefs, how we are different, and find out what we can learn from each other when it comes to - well, you guessed it - learning.

This is a super fascinating episode, which I'm sure you will thoroughly enjoy!

Rank #19: Ep. 28: The Father of Modern Memory Improvement Harry Lorayne: 60 Years of Mnemonics

Podcast cover
Read more

Today, we’ve managed to book, without exaggeration, the world’s foremost expert on memory and memory training: Harry Lorayne. He’s a living legend. Since the late 1950’s, he has sold over 17 MILLION copies of over 40 books on memory and magic. He’s been on every major television show you can imagine at least once - and generally starts off by memorizing the names of everyone in the up to 1500 person audience. He’s been in Forbes, coached a long list of Fortune 500 companies and their executives… Honestly, there’s no way I can possible do justice by just listing off his many accomplishments.

More important than these accomplishments is the fact that today’s guest is generally credited with bringing Memory training and mnemonics back into the public sphere. Long before the world memory championships, and long before both myself and my co-authors of Become a SuperLearner were even born, he was putting in the hours to rediscover and improve upon ancient memory techniques that have helped tens of millions of people change every aspect of their lives through improved mental faculties.

This interview might just be our biggest and most important yet. There’s so much value here, I don’t even know where to start. At 89 years old, Harry Lorayne pulls no punches and makes no apologies. He shares heartbreaking stories of physical abuse and overcoming dyslexia, but also some incredibly inspiring tales of how he became the world’s most respected authority on memory… which, by the way, he did with nothing more than a middle school education.

You’ll notice right away that Harry is clearly very practiced, having spent literally 60 years in the public spotlight. He’s an incredible storyteller, and has an incredible way of answering questions with vivid stories and examples that will leave you wanting more.

I just know you’re going to love this episode, so please take a moment to drop us a tweet or an email or a comment below with your thoughts.

Today we are joined by Myke Macapinlac. Myke went from a shy immigrant who used to work as a structural designer to becoming a podcast host, a social skills coach, and a lifestyle entrepreneur.

He now teaches shy people who are technically skilled to improve their social confidence so they can create meaningful connections in their personal, romantic, and professional lives. His work has been featured in the Calgary Herald, on Breakfast Television, on Shaw TV, and in the Huffington Post.

A little bit of backstory now. I actually went on Myke's show to talk about my latest book, The Only Skill That Matters, and I was so impressed by the little bits of his story that he shared with me that I immediately asked him to get on the show to talk to you. As you can tell, he agreed, and thus this episode was born.

I really enjoyed talking to Myke because he and I both strolled down memory lane of our own journey going from being socially awkward, uncomfortable, and lacking in confidence to where we are today.

Now, I wanted to have Dr. Shippy back on the show because, last time, we talked more about fasting and preventing disease, but I wanted to get a better sense of, first off, what epigenetics is, and what it practically means for us. And then I wanted to go a little deeper into mold, because Dr. Shippy has actually written an entire book on mold, as well as go a little deeper on diet, too.

So, we expand on everything we talked about last time in the episode, and we also refresh and relearn. I really enjoyed this episode and I learned quite a bit, and that's a pretty good indication that you are going to enjoy this conversation as well!

Ep. 284: How To Really Simplify And Perform At The Highest Level W/ Dr. Juli La Rocca

Podcast cover
Read more

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Welcome to this week's episode, where we actually have a very special one for you! You've probably heard me talk about today's guest before, Dr. Juli La Rocca, as a star SuperLearner student, and then someone who also took my Branding You program, and has gone on to just become so successful and influential, do incredible things, and help people all over the place.

Her story starts as a traditional Western medicine doctor who went from a lot of struggles, trials, tribulations, depression, suicidal thoughts, and much more as you'll discover, to learning, growing, changing, evolving, and becoming a coach to very successful people.

She's an incredible woman, she's actually one of my coaches right now, and she has helped me through so many incredible breakthroughs in the last year that we've been working together. So, I thought I would bring her to all of you, because not only does she have an incredible story, and an incredible amount of wisdom to share, but she is the epitome of a SuperLearner, going from not knowing anything about the thought leader business - her words, not mine - to where she is now.

Now, the student truly has become the teacher, and she is a valued coach of mine and teaches me so much about how to live my life and how to take good care of myself. So, again, I thought why hog all her wisdom for myself. I wanted to bring her to all of you, and we had an incredible conversation as we always do about life, about what's important, about different tools that you can use to perform at your highest level, and about simplifying, which I think is a really important thing that we all need to be thinking about right now.

I heard an incredible quote the other day from a former Disney executive who said "in the rush to go back to normal, take time to consider which parts of normal are worth going back to". I think that is so profound. I think this podcast episode will help you think, and start that conversation with yourself. So it is with great pleasure that I introduce you all to Dr. Juli La Rocca.

Ep. 283: Dr. Benjamin Hardy On Why Our Personality Really Isn't Permanent

Podcast cover
Read more

Greetings, SuperFriends!

I am really excited about today's episode, where we are joined by Dr. Benjamin Hardy, who has become one of my closer friends and professional contacts. If you listen to the show, or anything that I do, you've heard me quote Dr. Hardy significantly over the past few years, since his work has become a massive influence on my life and the lives of those I care about.

In this episode, we are going to talk about his new book: Personality Isn't Permanent. Throughout the episode, we talk about how much of that we think about personality is actually wrong. We learn how personality is actually formed, and how you can take an active role in designing the personality that you wish to have.

Pretty exciting stuff, and I really enjoyed the episode - I'm sure you will as well. I would also consider it a personal favor if you went and bought a copy of Personality Isn't Permanent!

Enjoy the episode!

Ep. 282: The Best Way To Be More? Have Less W/ Courtney Carver

Podcast cover
Read more

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Courtney Carver. Courtney is an expert in how you can be more with less.

I know what you're thinking - "is this an episode on minimalism?" - but it is actually an episode on so, so much more. I really enjoyed this episode because we went wide on how you can simplify various different aspects of your life, why you might want to, and how to get started.

This was really relevant for me in what I'm currently going through, trying to simplify my life, simplify my business, and just optimize for a new variable, which is happiness and health, as opposed to growing and achieving more.

So I think you're really going to enjoy it. I certainly did. And if you do, let us know, send us a little tweet or hit us up on the Instagram machine.

Ep. 281: How To Make Literally Anything Happen W/ Steve Sims

Podcast cover

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Do you know anyone that’s worked with Sir Elton John or Elon Musk, sent people down to see the wreck of the Titanic on the sea bed, or closed entire museums in Florence for a private dinner party and then had Andre Bocelli serenade them while they eat their pasta – well, you do now!

Quoted as “The Real Life Wizard of Oz" by Forbes and Entrepreneur Magazine, Steve Sims is a best-selling author with "BLUEFISHING - the art of making things happen”, he is a sought-after consultant, and a speaker at a variety of networks, groups and associations as well as the Pentagon and Harvard – twice!

He also is a friend of mine from Genius Network, and I think he is one of the most interesting human beings on the planet. This episode goes really wide, really far, and we talk about how can you make anything happen.

Well, what does that mean? It means that you have things that you'd like to happen in your life, things you want to achieve, experiences you want to have, and we talk about how you can actually make them happen - with the person that has made a career for decades from making impossible things happen for people.

And I know you expect that this is going to be another one of these episodes, where we just tell you to "try hard" and "know the right people", but no - you will be really surprised by what Steve has to say. Even me, Steve caught me multiple times going about things the wrong way, and he corrected me - and I love when someone brings to my attention how I can improve myself! Enjoy!

How Attachment Theory & Reprogramming Your Subconscious Beliefs Will Change Your Life W/ Thais Gibson

Podcast cover
Read more

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Thais Gibson. Thais is an author, speaker, and co-creator of the Personal Development School. She is, as you will see, extremely passionate about personal development and growth, specifically around the subconscious mind. She has an MA and 13 different certifications ranging from CBT to hypnosis, and in this episode, we covered a lot of them and learned about what Thais is probably most known for, which is her work and contributing research on attachment theory.

Now, this isn't something that we've talked about on the show before, but it's something that has dramatically impacted my life. I read a book on attachment theory years and years ago, and it changed the trajectory of my life because it changed the way that I was going about looking for a healthy and happy relationship - something that I hope for each and every one of you in the audience.

So we talk about that. We talk about how to understand where you are, the basics of the theory, and how it impacts you and your relationships. And then we got into another cool topic that we don't cover a lot on the show, which is hypnotherapy.

Is it the real deal and how does it work? Why does it work? So I did not talk a lot in this episode. Thais is very passionate, knows what she is talking about, and so I just sit back and let her share knowledge bomb after knowledge bomb. I think you're really going to enjoy this episode.

Through the Human Communications Institute, Michael has helped thousands of people transform their lives and raise their personal average through his signature events, audio seminars, one-on-one coaching, and more.

Ep. 278: Dr. Will Bulsiewicz On How To Develop And Optimize A Healthy Gut Microbiome

Podcast cover
Read more

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today I'm really excited to be joined by Dr. Will Bulsiewicz - very hard to pronounce, but very interesting to listen to. Dr. Bulsiewicz is an MD, MSCI, board-certified, award-winning gastroenterologist.

Yes, there are awards. In gastroenterology. That was one of many, many things that I learned in today's episode. Dr. Bulsiewicz is a graduate of Georgetown University School of Medicine and was chief medical resident at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and chief gastroenterology fellow at the University at North Carolina Hospital. He won the highest award given in both his residency and fellowship.

As a former junk-food junkie and ribeye steak lover, Dr. Bulsiewicz personally lost 50 pounds and radically transformed his health by discovering the healing power of fiber and transitioning to a plant-based diet. He then brought these methods to his clinic and witnessed his patients have amazing results. Dr. Bulsiewicz completed 8 years of formal research training and has spent over a decade trying to help people improve their health.

His latest book is called Fiber Fueled, and is coming out on May 12th, 2020. If you want to check it out and read more, you can follow him on Instagram. His handle is @theguthealthmd, if I'm not mistaken.

So, why did I so enjoy this episode? Well, first off, it's always fun to talk about poop, right?

But more than that, we discovered some of the misconceptions around just how much influence you have over your gut health and how much influence that has over your overall health. I learned some very, very surprising things about just how impactful improving your gut health will be in the overall picture of your SuperHuman health.

And, I learned some interesting stuff around what it takes to actually have a healthy microbiome. Guess what? It does not involve buying pills, potions, or products. It involves a very specific diet that you will learn about throughout this episode. So I really enjoyed talking to Dr. Bulsiewicz and I know that you will as well.

Podcast cover

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Hugo Mercier, the CEO and co-founder of Dreem, a leading digital therapeutic for sleep disorders. Hugo has led his business through the development of the company’s solution – the Dreem 2 headband -, which I recently got a chance to try out and was blown away by so much, that I wanted to have Hugo on the show to learn how they managed to build a sleep lab that you can buy and use at home to improve your sleep.

Hugo is a graduate of my Alma mater, UC Berkeley, and the Ecole Polytechnique in Paris where he studied engineering and entrepreneurship. He's also been honored with all kinds of awards for being an innovator and all different kinds of awesome influential persons awards. He's even spoken at amazing events such as Slush Web, Summit, TEDx, and more.

Now, I really enjoyed this episode and I think you will very quickly see why. I know we have done a lot of episodes on sleep, but I have never had a chance to talk to someone who works with literally a dozen of the world's top sleep researchers one-on-one, and who is constantly spending his entire day analyzing sleep research and figuring out how we can practically make people's sleep better.

I learned things about sleep and that says a lot because I have done a lot of thinking, interviewing, and reading about sleep. So, I know you're going to enjoy this episode!

Ep. 276: How To Truly Dominate Your Procrastination W/ Dimitris Gkiokas

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Welcome to this week's episode, where we have a very special guest! In fact, today you are going to meet one of the members of my executive team, who just so happens to be an expert and thought leader on the topic of procrastination. His name is Dimitris Gkiokas (say that three times fast) and he has an incredible story which he shares throughout this podcast episode.

Dimitris is an award-winning podcaster, he runs the most successful podcast in Greece, he has his own business, and is a core member of the leadership team in my business. No one would look at someone with that much amazing stuff going on and realize that he is actually a recovering gaming addict - and I'm talking about an actual addiction, as you will see.

He is a recovering chronic procrastinator and is someone who has had an incredible journey just to be able to achieve a fraction of the things that he wants to achieve in life. So in this podcast episode, we talk about the incredible journey that Dimitris has gone through to be able to achieve so much, and what you can learn from it.

He shares how so many of us, many more than I think we realize, are also suffering from procrastination - maybe not as badly. But we are suffering from procrastination in our day to day lives. And he talks about how you can change your relationship to procrastination, and how you can overcome many of the negative effects.

I really enjoyed this episode. I've learned a lot from Dimitris around this topic and learned how even I, yes, even me, with the podcasts and the courses and the million other things going on, even I have a procrastination problem that I would be served to change.

Please enjoy!

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Christy Whitman. Christy is a two time New York Times best-selling author, Celebrity Coach, Transformational Leader, and just all-around superwoman in every possible sense of the definition. She has appeared on "Today" and The Morning Show and her work has been featured in People Magazine, Seventeen, Woman’s Day, Hollywood Life, and Teen Vogue, among others. She is also the CEO and founder of the Quantum Success Learning Academy and Quantum Success Coaching Academy, and has more programs than I care to list - check out her website where there are so many different cool programs, workshops, books, and other things that she is putting on.

I was really excited to talk to Christy because I feel like we've never talked about the Law of Attraction on the show from someone who really lives, breathes, practices, and coaches it outside of the kind of woo-woo, like "just believe and everything will happen for you". Because then, actually what are the steps you need to take? How do you need to change your mindset so that you can actually manifest reality in your life?

Apart from that, Christy has also written an incredible book called The Art of Having It All, where she talks about how women, and anyone really, can have it all, despite what society thinks and the limitations we think that we have.

And then, she also put out a book called Quantum Success. And I have to admit, I was very curious to figure out exactly what Quantum Success was. And so I begged Christy to come on the show and she was very kind to oblige. I really enjoyed the episode. I think you're going to enjoy it as well.

I really enjoyed this conversation. I think there are so many valuable nuggets that Noah has to share. Unfortunately, we didn't get them all out of him today because we ran out of time, but I think you'll really enjoy this conversation.

In the episode, we talked about success. We talked about limiting beliefs. We talked about some of the concepts that Noah has identified in his journey, working with people, and what really stops people from succeeding  (whatever that means to you) to the extent that they want to.

Now, I wanted to have Dr. Lynch on the show, not because we haven't talked about genetics recently, as I've actually been talking and I've been trying to talk a lot about genetics and the fact that we can influence how our genes are expressed...

The reason that I wanted to have him on was that he has a very contrarian approach and a lot of really, really new and fresh, exciting advice that I think you're all going to enjoy very much.

Carey has created a ton of different businesses that have generated over 100 million dollars in revenue. She has been a coach for 14 years. And she has worked with a lot of really, really high profile and high-performance people.

Carey and I had this episode on the books for quite some time. We decided on the fly that we wanted to kind of pivot the subject of the interview, and go more into the mindset and how to deal with fear, given the crisis that we are all facing right now in March of 2020, and how scary the world has become.

As Carey pointed out to me, all the coach ever does is help people work through fear, to overcome challenges. And that's why I felt this was the right opportunity to talk about how to manage some of the fear that a lot of us are experiencing, rightfully so, and how to make the most of it.

I really enjoyed the episode, I learned a lot, and I know that you are going to enjoy this episode too!

Ep. 271: Why & How To Stay Fit - Even In Quarantine w/ Tee Major

Podcast cover

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are going to be talking about quarantine, social distancing, and being stuck at home. I wanted to do this special episode and move around all the other episodes we have scheduled, because as it so happens, a very dear friend of mine is one of the world's top experts on how to work out in not-so-ideal conditions.

His name is Tee Major, and he's been on the show a couple of times before. Tee has written a book called Urban Calisthenics, which talks about how you can maintain peak physical fitness even in urban, cramped apartments, without any weights and gear.

More importantly, he developed this experience over years of working with every single branch of the US military and Special Forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. These are people literally living in extreme conditions, who also need to be at their peak physical fitness.

This is an important episode for a couple of different reasons. One, because I think it's crucial that we all take care of ourselves physically, emotionally, mentally, and otherwise, during these difficult times, and again, the physical is a big part of that.

In addition to that, I think a lot of people are using this situation as an excuse to slack off a little bit - I know I'm guilty of it - but as you you'll learn in this episode, there is a lot you can do. In fact, Tee advocates that you don't need to just maintain, but you can actually thrive, improve, and get closer to your goals.

This is a really good episode, that I'm sure you are going to thoroughly enjoy!

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Dr. Marc Schneider and Justin Roethlingshoefer. These two gentlemen, one an athlete, and one a doctor and surgeon, they are together the authors of a new book on athletic performance, called "The Athletic Performance Blueprint".

This is a wide-ranging conversation - we went all over the place - because these gentlemen both have very different experiences. One was a professional athlete in NHL, the other one runs a sports nutrition company, and, in general, they are both very preoccupied with human performance.

So, we talked a lot about what that means, what that looks like, what are the ways that you can reach peak athletic performance, and I also took the opportunity to ask a former professional athlete about mindset, and how you actually train that mental tenacity to show up and bust your butt every day.

Personally, that was my favorite part of the episode! Stick around, and enjoy!

Ep. 269: Dr. Brett Wingeier On Halo Sport & The Effects Of Brain Stimulation

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Dr. Brett Wingeier, currently CTO and co-founder of Halo Neuroscience. Dr. Brett himself is an engineer and neuroscientist with twenty years of experience creating science-based products to unlock human potential and treat disease. He is also the co-creator of Halo Sport, the world's first convenient, wearable neurostimulator for athletic training. Prior to Halo, Dr. Wingeier was a principal engineer and clinical scientist at NeuroPace, bringing to market the first fully-implantable responsive neurostimulator for epilepsy. Really cool stuff!

Now, I wanted to have Dr. Wingeier on the show because many of you have reached out to me and asked about the Halo Sport, this device that you supposedly put on your head and it makes you learn motor skills faster. So, I reached out to the company, told them that my audience is asking about their product, and requested that I talk to someone from their team. They said "absolutely", they were kind enough to send me a unit, and they told me that I could ask all the questions I want to their CTO and co-founder.

And that's exactly what I did. So, for those of you that want to know whether this works, yes, it does. If you want to learn how it works, you will learn more about Dr. Wingeier himself in the episode.

I really enjoyed the episode because it gave me the opportunity to go into a part of accelerated learning that I normally don't get to go so deep on, and that I normally feel is a hole in my knowledge. That is, can we accelerate the learning of physical motor skills, and can we make our brain connect to our body in faster and more efficient ways?

Spoiler alert, the answer is yes, and in this episode, you will learn how. We also go a bit deeper into the crazy ways that you can use electronics and technology to change our brains.

I really enjoyed this episode, and I'm sure you will do so as well!

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Geoffrey Woo. Geoffrey works closely with researchers at Oxford University and professional athletes to further our understanding of ketosis and human performance. A former computer scientist, he applies a systems engineering mindset to nutrition & performance you don't often see in the space. He's been in Forbes 30 under 30, he has sold Silicon Valley company at age 23, he is author of 2 US Patents, he has published various scientific papers, and much more.

I wanted to have Geoffrey on the show because we've talked about ketosis, fasting, and other things like that, but we've never talked about the extremes. For example, exogenous ketones, what happens in the body during ketosis, or whether you should be going into ketosis if you are just the average human being.

So, I wanted to dive deeper and really get a feel for whether or not this is applicable to real humans. I think I got some really good answers, I certainly learned a lot about ketosis and fasting, and it really doubled down my motivation to fast more, both intermittently and in extended fasts, and to try out some new things.

I really enjoyed this episode, and I'm sure you will as well!
