The School of Not So Great

By IdeaJuicer - Sep 20 2019
Read more
I listened to this podcast several times even after his description of himself as a "lifestyle entrepreneur." The podcast was so-so but it filled the time while I walked. The podcast I listened to today was a one-sided political screed filled with self-righteous hate and intolerance for anyone with a different opinion. Howes just let this political rant go on and on. If I want to hear partisan politics I can watch cable news. I unsubscribed from this mediocre podcast and I'm sure I won't miss it.

Go be great!

THE TWO THINGS AT WAR IN A MAN ARE LOVE AND LUST.

People today are struggling in relationships.

With social media, there are so many options.

Everything looks fresh and new and interesting.

Why would anyone be happy with just one person?

But when you’re constantly searching for the next best thing, you feel empty. You lack peace and satisfaction. And you miss out on what life is all about: love.

Rank #5: Jesse Itzler on Building a Healthy, Wealthy, Wise Life

Podcast cover
Read more
“I LEARN BEST BY JUMPING INTO THE UNKNOWN.”

There’s one resource in this world we all take for granted: time.

We’re only on this planet for a small amount of time, and we tend to build routines in our lives that makes the days roll by.

The next thing we know, we look in the mirror and we’re 70. When you look at that face do you want to see a life of missed opportunities or one filled with experiences you are proud of?

If you want the latter, you need to make sure you schedule time for you. Take the time to build your life resume, because that’s what makes our lives much more interesting.

When you talk about someone, do you talk about how they clock in to work on time everyday at 9 am and work late hours? Or do you talk about the places they’ve been to, and the experiences they’ve had?

On this episode of The School of Greatness, I bring you back someone who has decided to build their life’s resume: Jesse Itzler.

Importance of taking advantage of time. Routine make life fly by. Make time for yourself - building life resume instead of business resume.
Jesse enjoys living life "out of the box." In fact, he doesn't even have a box. The author of the New York Times bestseller, Living with a Seal, co founded Marquis Jet, the world's largest private jet card company which he and his partner sold to Berkshire Hathaway/NetJets. Jesse then partnered with Zico coconut water, which he and his partner sold to The Coca-Cola Company.

He’s also the kind of person that when he wants something he grabs onto the opportunity without delay. He recently decided he needed to detox his mind from electronics and the constant multitasking of today’s world.

He ended up living with monks, living in a room as small as a table, and unable to communicate with his family, just to find himself.

The lessons he learned most were about the need to make time for yourself and the people around you that you care most about. In the end, that’s where you’ll have the most impact and where your true legacy will come from.

Learn more lessons from Jesse’s isolation and time with the monks, on Episode 652.
Some Questions I Ask:

How was your 15 day digital detox? (8:45)

What are you not waiting for? (20:09)

If you could go back 20 years, what would you eliminate or add to your life? (21:41)

Do you still take 3 hours for yourself every day? (24:44)

Rank #6: Find Lasting Love with Matthew Hussey

Podcast cover
Read more
BUILD YOUR CASTLE. Love at first sight is bullshit. A relationship is like a castle. You find a plot of land that has a lot of potential. Then, bit by bit, you build the castle. But it takes work from both of you. One person can’t be laying the bricks while the other is home watching TV. After lots of hard work, you’ll have something unique and ornate that belongs to you. You’ll have a castle. That’s love. On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about the key to lasting relationships with an international guru of the dating and relationship-coaching scene: Matthew Hussey. Matthew Hussey is a speaker, New York Times Bestselling author, columnist for Cosmopolitan Magazine, and dating expert on ABC’s digital series What To Text Him Back. His corporate clients include Hugo Boss, The Perfume Shop, Virgin Gyms, Procter & Gamble, Bare Escentuals, U.S. legal giant Weil Gotshal & Manges, and global management consultants Accenture. 50,000 women have attended his live events and he has reached over 10 million online. Matthew says that the “activation energy” for starting relationships is lower than ever. This causes ghosting. People are less invested in relationships. But there are ways you can meet people indirectly.
So get ready to learn the three things you need to build a great relationship on Episode 811.

Some Questions I Ask:
Do people even want to have a committed, long term relationship? (19:00)

YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE YESTERDAY. We are all governed by fear. Even when good things happen, we’re afraid they will go away. Once you accept and welcome your fear, it won’t have control over you anymore. It’s about embracing the duality. You have to be ok with the best outcome and the worst outcome. Here’s the truth: you don’t have to live anxious and scared. You don’t have to be governed by your story. On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about increasing your receiving vibration with a comedian turned motivational speaker: Kyle Cease. Kyle Cease is a New York Times best-selling author with two #1 Comedy Central specials to his credit. He has been a guest speaker at thousands of colleges, summits, and Fortune 500 conferences and has made over 100 TV and movie appearances.

Rank #8: Marriage Secrets from a Divorce Lawyer with James Sexton

Podcast cover
Read more
“THIS IS THE MOST LEGALLY SIGNIFICANT THING YOU WILL DO, OTHER THAN DYING.”

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.

Rank #11: The Keys to Persuasion and Powerful Self - Confidence with Ed Mylett

Podcast cover
Read more
"THINGS HAPPEN FOR YOU, NOT TO YOU.”

As you know my biggest goal is to serve you. I really dedicate every day to trying to help as many people as I can.

When I get on a stage I try to speak to each individual person in the crowd. I try to reach out to every member of the audience and truly help them. I want them to take action, and leave with the tools they need to change their life.

I’ve been fortunate enough to become friends with an amazing speaker that is of the same mindset - Ed Mylett. If you haven’t heard of Ed before, you’ve been missing out.

“People respond to what they feel, not what they hear and see.”

Ed started out with the dream of playing professional baseball. But like so many of us, an injury changed his course in life.

Instead, his first job out of college was helping boys at a foster home who came from abused families. It’s here he found is life mission: to serve.

He saw in the eyes of these boys that they just wanted what everyone wants - to be loved and appreciated. This ended up taking him down the road of servitude later in life.

Today, Ed is one of the premier business leaders, peak performance experts, and motivational speakers in the world. He has a passion for mentoring and coaching others on what it takes to become a champion in all areas of life.

He has shared the stage and has very close personal relationships with other business legends such as Tony Robbins, John Maxwell, Phil Knight and many others.

Hear his insights on life, public speaking, and so much more on Episode 586.

Rank #12: Jordan Peterson on Responsibility and Meaning

Podcast cover
Read more
“TREAT YOURSELF LIKE YOU ARE SOMEONE RESPONSIBLE FOR HELPING.”

It’s common for people to question why they are here. This question can lead to depression and a sense that the world is a terrible place. I’ve sure you’ve experienced that feeling, and you may even be going through it right now.

During these times you’ll commonly replay events in your life where you felt out of control or like everything was going wrong.

That reaction comes from a lack of purpose and responsibility for yourself. You’re lacking the goals you need to feel complete.

Instead, start making a road map for your life: the things you want to achieve, the family you want to have, etc.

It doesn’t have to be a perfect map. In fact, it won’t be. No one has the ultimate road map. But any direction is better than no direction. Without a start, you’re just going to stand there watching the world pass you by.

To dive further into this I’ve brought in a special guest: Dr. Jordan Peterson.
Dr. Peterson is a professor at the University of Toronto, a clinical psychologist and the author of the million-plus selling 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos (Jan 2018, Penguin Books), which has been a Number 1 bestseller in the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, the Netherlands and Brazil, and which is now slated to be translated into 40 languages.

He has become super popular in the last two years for his lectures which he records and puts on YouTube.

I had such an interesting interview with him that had so much important information, I actually split it into two episodes.

In this episode of The School of Greatness, we sit down and discuss why we admire sports figures, how any aim (even a bad one) is crucial for you to feel fulfilled, and a mindset tool you can use to motivate you to do hard things.

Learn how you can find the strength to live life you didn’t know you had, on Episode 664.
Some Questions I Ask:

How do you embody something in a shift of view? (7:23)

Why is there so much conflict in the world? (8:14)

A clear conscience is different than happiness? (11:06)

When we’re watching sports, what does it do for us? (15:51)

How do you fix your past traumas you can’t let go of? (21:22)

What do you mean by being reasonable with your goals? (23:18)

Why is it better to have a bad plan than to be in “No Man’s Land”? (27:15)

What are some examples of weaknesses people might have? (28:42)

What are three weaknesses, you know right now, you can still work on? (29:29)

Does a rationale mean a meaning? (37:14)
In This Episode You Will Learn:

How Dr. Peterson’s simplifies his philosophy (6:16)

The relationship between responsibility and meaning (9:56)

Why people are so interested in sports (13:13)

The reasons you need a noble cause (17:37)

The purpose of memory (20:17)

Podcast cover

FAMILY ISN’T EVERYTHING. How often have you heard phrases about putting family first? Most of us had a plaque on the wall growing up that said something similar. But if you’re letting family walk all over you, you’re doing a disservice to yourself. We get what we tolerate. If you don’t like something, but you tolerate it, you can’t expect people to change. So how do we have better relationships with our families? We have to create a request. And we have to keep our word. Telling people what you need doesn’t always feel good, but it’s necessary to take care of yourself. On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about boundaries and reparenting yourself with an inspirational holistic psychologist: Dr. Nicole Lepera. Dr. Nicole LePera is a Holistic Psychologist who believes that mental wellness is for everyone. She evolved her more traditional training from Cornell University and The New School to one that acknowledges the connection between the mind and body. Dr. LePera founded the Mindful Healing Center in Center City Philadelphia where she works with individuals, couples, and families taking gut health, sleep, movement, cellular health, belief, and mindfulness into treatment. Dr. Nicole Lepera shares her three steps to creating healthy boundaries and how to break cycles in ourselves. So get ready to learn how to be a self healer on Episode 844.

DON'T LET "POTENTIAL" BE WRITTEN ON YOUR TOMBSTONE.

About ten years ago when I was playing professional football, I got injured.

I ended up on my sister’s couch.

I felt bad for myself and thought that there should be a way for people like me to get help.

Then I realized- what if I could solve this problem?

It was that experience that led me into the work I do today.

One of the reasons I don’t follow politics is because I want to focus on overcoming our own challenges.

That’s why I’m so interested in my guest on today’s episode of The School of Greatness: Ben Shapiro.

Ben Shapiro is editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire and host of "The Ben Shapiro Show," the top conservative podcast in the nation. Ben is the New York Times bestselling author of seven nonfiction books and is constantly featured on major newspapers and websites.
