We all want connection. We all want an amazing, sexy, supportive romantic relationship. So why is it so hard to find the person who can fill that position? Most often, it’s not other people that are the problem- it’s ourselves. We have so much hurt from our past that we haven’t worked through that keeps us from experience true connection with someone else. Hurt people hurt people. On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I discuss what is keeping people from accepting love and why marriages fail with an incredible relationship guru: Stephan Labossiere. Stephan Labossiere a.k.a Stephan Speaks is a certified relationship coach, speaker, and author. From understanding the opposite sex to navigating the paths and avoiding the pitfalls of relationships and self-growth, Stephan's relationship advice and insight help countless individuals achieve an authentically amazing life. Seen, heard and chronicled in national and international media outlets including; the Tom Joyner Morning Show, The Examiner, ABC, and Huffington Post Live, to name a few. To coin a phrase by an individual who attended one of his speaking engagements, "he's definitely the relationship guy, all relationships all the time." Stephan talks about how important it is to heal before you get into a relationship. Otherwise, you’re going to be projecting your past hurt onto your partner. He says that the most important part of every relationship is connection. Connection will bring chemistry. So get ready to learn all about the things that make a romantic relationship last on Episode 730. Some Questions I Ask: Who runs away from relationships that have potential more? Men or Women?

So many of us feel like we struggle with our weight. We search for diets and end up getting frustrated with them because the rules are hard to follow or they simply don’t work because there’s no 'one size fits all' solution. A while back I discovered a great, easy to use program called Whole30. It explains, step by step, how you can find the diet program that works for you. There’s a lot of people out there whose diet is making them sick. Maybe your friends can eat grains, but you can’t. Whole30 is designed to help you find exactly what YOU need. This system is one that felt so good I took it way past the 30-day mark. But the woman behind it is even more incredible.

Rank #7: Rachel Hollis: How to Build Confidence, Believe in Yourself and Become Your Best Self

Sep 24 2018
Podcast cover
Read more

There are three fears we struggle with the most: The fear of failure The fear of success And the fear of judgment. The center of all of those fears is “I am not enough.” When we get past that, we can step into anything. People-pleasing is an issue a lot of us face. It’s crazy how we can allow one person’s opinion of us to hold us back. That’s why I really enjoyed my conversation with a bestselling mom who overcame her need to make other people happy: Rachel Hollis. Rachel had been working for over a decade on her career, her marriage, and her brand before her career took off. She wrote six books that hardly sold any copies. Her seventh book became a hit. Her life changed with one viral post that created the momentum for her bestselling book. Girl, Wash Your Face has over a million copies sold and is growing every week. She is host of the RISE Podcast and co-host of the RISE Together podcast. She is a mother of four who was named one of the "Top 30 Entrepreneurs under 30" by Inc. Magazine. She is an amazing example of the power of not giving up. So learn how to follow your dreams and live for yourself (even if you’re a mom) on Episode 697.

Rank #10: Marriage Secrets from a Divorce Lawyer with James Sexton

Apr 11 2018
Podcast cover
Read more

Marriage is something that is so important to people. In fact, you probably thought about what your wedding would be like as a child. When people go into a marriage they think so much about their venue, their cake, their guest list -- but they never really think about what they are signing up for. Marriage is, legally, one of the most important things you can do. You are signing away half of your life. And there’s nothing wrong with that - if it’s the right person. On this episode of The School of Greatness, I brought on someone who knows so much about people being with the wrong person and how to set yourself up for a great marriage: NYC divorce attorney James Sexton. James has intentionally focused his practice on divorce and family law since his graduation from Fordham Law School. In addition to his Juris Doctorate (Law Degree) he has a Master of Arts degree from New York University where he focused his graduate research on the areas of persuasive speech and propaganda studies. To top it all off, James is the author of the incredibly informative book on marriage, If You’re in My Office, You’re Already Too Late. On this episode he discusses how a lot of people rush into a serious relationship without ironing out all of the details. He shares the insights he’s learned from thousands upon thousands of failed marriages. And he shared why he still believes marriage is a good idea. Learn all of the inside secrets to creating a successful marriage, on Episode 626. Some Questions I Ask: Have there been any clients that were going to get a divorce then decided not to?

I am so excited to finally be releasing this episode with the amazing Les Brown on The School of Greatness. Les is a motivational speaker who doesn’t just help people find inspiration, but helps them achieve greatness, and I think that this conversation will help you get a little closer to greatness, too. Les and his twin brother were adopted as infants and never knew their biological parents. They were raised by a single woman who was strong enough to do it all on her own. As a child, Les was diagnosed as mentally disabled, and referred to as DT - the dumb twin. He let this story everyone told him hold him back and keep him from achieving greatness. One day, in a class room, all of that changed.

There is no way any of us can know where our life will go, and today’s guest took his life in a very different direction. Jay Shetty grew up thinking he would he an art director and loved design.

My girlfriend recently started telling me I had to have a certain nutritionist come on the podcast. I didn't think much of it, but she persisted about how amazing she was, so I brought her on. Wow, I'm so glad I did. Kelly LeVeque is not only positive, glowing, and lives what she preaches when it comes to health and diet, but she is super knowledgeable about the science of how our bodies work. Within 10 minutes of the interview starting she was teaching me about exactly how and why I get hungry, what foods cause what hormones in my body to release, and so much more. I loved how nerdy she got about the science of hunger and healthy eating -- but she still kept everything easy to understand.

Do you avoid challenging yourself? If you do, you’re cheating yourself of reaching your full potential. There is so much you can learn through pain. But we want to avoid it.

That’s why I’m so excited to share this conversation I had with someone who has mastered the art of using pain as a way to better himself: David Goggins. David Goggins is a retired Navy SEAL and is the only member of the U.S. Armed Forces to complete SEAL training (including two Hell Weeks), the U.S. Army Ranger School (where he graduated as Enlisted Honor Man) and Air Force Tactical Air Controller training. David is indisputably one of the world’s best endurance athletes. He has completed over 60 endurance races, regularly placing in the top five and taken home first place several times.

Wow, I already know this is going to be another one of the most popular episodes on the podcast to date. The first time the queen of relationships, Esther Perel, came on the podcast, she blew me away with her insights about love and intimacy. (A few hundred thousand downloads of that episode later and I know I'm not the only one). So when she told me her new book was about infidelity and unpacking why people cheat (especially when it's on the people they still love), I knew it was going to be a powerful conversation. Esther spoke just last month at the second annual Summit of Greatness, and she was by far one of the most popular speakers. (People were booing me as I had to wrap up our Q&A because they wanted to hear more from her.) She has an incredible ability to speak the truth in a way that cuts you to the core and also makes you feel safe to explore topics we usually don't talk about.

We all want connection. We all want an amazing, sexy, supportive romantic relationship. So why is it so hard to find the person who can fill that position? Most often, it’s not other people that are the problem- it’s ourselves. We have so much hurt from our past that we haven’t worked through that keeps us from experience true connection with someone else. Hurt people hurt people. On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I discuss what is keeping people from accepting love and why marriages fail with an incredible relationship guru: Stephan Labossiere. Stephan Labossiere a.k.a Stephan Speaks is a certified relationship coach, speaker, and author.

Seen, heard and chronicled in national and international media outlets including; the Tom Joyner Morning Show, The Examiner, ABC, and Huffington Post Live, to name a few. To coin a phrase by an individual who attended one of his speaking engagements, "he's definitely the relationship guy, all relationships all the time." Stephan talks about how important it is to heal before you get into a relationship. Otherwise, you’re going to be projecting your past hurt onto your partner. He says that the most important part of every relationship is connection. Connection will bring chemistry.

So many of us feel like we struggle with our weight. We search for diets and end up getting frustrated with them because the rules are hard to follow or they simply don’t work because there’s no 'one size fits all' solution. A while back I discovered a great, easy to use program called Whole30. It explains, step by step, how you can find the diet program that works for you. There’s a lot of people out there whose diet is making them sick. Maybe your friends can eat grains, but you can’t. Whole30 is designed to help you find exactly what YOU need. This system is one that felt so good I took it way past the 30-day mark. But the woman behind it is even more incredible.

Rank #7: Rachel Hollis: How to Build Confidence, Believe in Yourself and Become Your Best Self

Podcast cover
Read more

There are three fears we struggle with the most: The fear of failure The fear of success And the fear of judgment. The center of all of those fears is “I am not enough.” When we get past that, we can step into anything. People-pleasing is an issue a lot of us face. It’s crazy how we can allow one person’s opinion of us to hold us back. That’s why I really enjoyed my conversation with a bestselling mom who overcame her need to make other people happy: Rachel Hollis. Rachel had been working for over a decade on her career, her marriage, and her brand before her career took off. She wrote six books that hardly sold any copies. Her seventh book became a hit. Her life changed with one viral post that created the momentum for her bestselling book. Girl, Wash Your Face has over a million copies sold and is growing every week. She is host of the RISE Podcast and co-host of the RISE Together podcast. She is a mother of four who was named one of the "Top 30 Entrepreneurs under 30" by Inc. Magazine. She is an amazing example of the power of not giving up. So learn how to follow your dreams and live for yourself (even if you’re a mom) on Episode 697.

Rank #10: Marriage Secrets from a Divorce Lawyer with James Sexton

Podcast cover
Read more

Marriage is something that is so important to people. In fact, you probably thought about what your wedding would be like as a child. When people go into a marriage they think so much about their venue, their cake, their guest list -- but they never really think about what they are signing up for. Marriage is, legally, one of the most important things you can do. You are signing away half of your life. And there’s nothing wrong with that - if it’s the right person. On this episode of The School of Greatness, I brought on someone who knows so much about people being with the wrong person and how to set yourself up for a great marriage: NYC divorce attorney James Sexton. James has intentionally focused his practice on divorce and family law since his graduation from Fordham Law School. In addition to his Juris Doctorate (Law Degree) he has a Master of Arts degree from New York University where he focused his graduate research on the areas of persuasive speech and propaganda studies. To top it all off, James is the author of the incredibly informative book on marriage, If You’re in My Office, You’re Already Too Late. On this episode he discusses how a lot of people rush into a serious relationship without ironing out all of the details. He shares the insights he’s learned from thousands upon thousands of failed marriages. And he shared why he still believes marriage is a good idea.

I am so excited to finally be releasing this episode with the amazing Les Brown on The School of Greatness. Les is a motivational speaker who doesn’t just help people find inspiration, but helps them achieve greatness, and I think that this conversation will help you get a little closer to greatness, too. Les and his twin brother were adopted as infants and never knew their biological parents. They were raised by a single woman who was strong enough to do it all on her own. As a child, Les was diagnosed as mentally disabled, and referred to as DT - the dumb twin. He let this story everyone told him hold him back and keep him from achieving greatness. One day, in a class room, all of that changed.

My girlfriend recently started telling me I had to have a certain nutritionist come on the podcast. I didn't think much of it, but she persisted about how amazing she was, so I brought her on. Wow, I'm so glad I did. Kelly LeVeque is not only positive, glowing, and lives what she preaches when it comes to health and diet, but she is super knowledgeable about the science of how our bodies work. Within 10 minutes of the interview starting she was teaching me about exactly how and why I get hungry, what foods cause what hormones in my body to release, and so much more. I loved how nerdy she got about the science of hunger and healthy eating -- but she still kept everything easy to understand.

Do you avoid challenging yourself? If you do, you’re cheating yourself of reaching your full potential. There is so much you can learn through pain. But we want to avoid it.

Wow, I already know this is going to be another one of the most popular episodes on the podcast to date. The first time the queen of relationships, Esther Perel, came on the podcast, she blew me away with her insights about love and intimacy. (A few hundred thousand downloads of that episode later and I know I'm not the only one). So when she told me her new book was about infidelity and unpacking why people cheat (especially when it's on the people they still love), I knew it was going to be a powerful conversation. Esther spoke just last month at the second annual Summit of Greatness, and she was by far one of the most popular speakers. (People were booing me as I had to wrap up our Q&A because they wanted to hear more from her.) She has an incredible ability to speak the truth in a way that cuts you to the core and also makes you feel safe to explore topics we usually don't talk about.
