Today I’m in Phoenix for the last stop of my book tour, but I recently decided that I may attempt another round later this year because I’m having so much fun with them. Sure, we talk about some pretty serious stuff, but we get to laugh with each other while we do it – and that is SO fantastic! It’s so gratifying to see another dream of mine come true. And if you’ve been following me for a while, you know this dream didn’t happen overnight.

 

Speaking of which, while going through some of my social media posts the other day so I could get a feel what’s resonating most with people lately, I found a post about dreams that hit a major chord.

 

When you ask for something, when you really want something, you gotta know that it’s not getting delivered in its final form. It’s like going to IKEA, picking out your favorite kitchen and furniture to fill your house and saying, “Yeah, that’s pretty! I love it! I want it! I’ll take that!” Then going home to a pile of confusing parts you have to put together yourself only to realize you don’t own any tools and your dog ate the instructions. Yup, that’s how your dreams get delivered – they show up one day at your door as a pile of lessons that you do not yet have the skills or tools to navigate. That pile of lessons, tough relationships and lack of skills serve as your opportunity to figure out how to be resourceful and become the person who can handle building and maintaining the dream. Yup, I have a love-hate relationship with IKEA and building my dreams, but I sure enjoy who I’ve become as a result of figuring out the messes and overwhelm when I realize it’s all gonna be beautiful on the other side.”

 

Dreams don’t just magically appear – as much as we wish they did. It’s about getting resourceful and finding others who can help you toward them.

 

“The only thing you need to do is take the action.”

 

You don’t have to have all the answers right away. You don’t have to be “ready.” But when you’re shooting for your dreams you’re also going to be in a constant state of testing and figuring out what works…and what doesn’t. It’s not going to feel good all the time and you may feel a little crazy at times, but that’s not a bad thing. Experiencing the bad helps us appreciate the success that much more.

 

So support your dream. For me, I love my podcast. I love talking with other amazing humans and learning new things. However, I don’t love the scheduling, editing, posting, and that’s why I have an incredible team that helps me with it. So if you’re saying, “I love this, but not this,” find a way to change your perspective about your dream. How is this not-so-fun part helping you achieve your dream?

 

“Be willing to feel lost on a daily basis. Security is not real.”

 

You’re never going to feel ready, but keep reframing, changing your perspective and never give up. Me personally?

 

“I don’t stop until I create what I wish existed.”

 

Just go with it! Take action (big or small) and make your wildest dreams come true!

--

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • What dreams look like when they’re delivered
  • How to support your dreams (get resourceful)
  • Taking action before you’re ready

It is such a massive honor to have today’s guest, Andy Frisella, on the show today. He is such an inspiration to me and I encourage you to listen and hold onto each and every single raw and honest word he speaks.

As a successful entrepreneur in the sports supplementation industry as well as a wildly successful podcaster, Andy LOVES what he does every day because he’s changing people’s lives. But this wasn’t always the case. A once self-professed fat kid eating Dorito’s who never completed anything, Andy realized he needed to make a change ­– even if that meant getting uncomfortable to do it.

Andy shares his journey with us and opens up to tell us how being stabbed radically changed his perspective on the world and how it also accidentally got him into business. Now he’s able to use his business and platform to make an impact and help others.

While you won’t hear Andy mincing words over any naysayers, you will hear him telling it like it is. If you’re looking for permission to do the same and also cut out the negativity in your life, look no further – Andy is walking permission to be REAL.

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • What do you tell people whose backs aren’t against the wall… How do they get there?
  • How does the Law of Attraction work for you?
  • What do you do when you feeling like you’re going downhill (fear, doubt etc.)?
  • Growing up, did you feel like there was more?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Andy’s journey from a fat kid eating Dorito’s and not finishing anything to the success he is today
  • The “zero option mentality”
  • Getting uncomfortable to continue growing and evolving
  • How Andy is driven by negativity/the dark side
  • Being resourceful with your energies and motivators
  • Transferring negativity and pain into productive things that help other people
  • How Andy came back after being stabbed in the face and how it helped him connect and boost his business
  • The Law of Attraction
  • Looking for miracles
  • Building a business around purpose vs. making money
  • The Powerless Method (ep. 107 of The MFCEO Podcast – https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/win-the-day-with-andy-frisella-mfceo107/id1012570406?i=1000377906163&mt=2)
  • Eliminating the negative people who aren’t contributing positively in your life
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

“Even though it feels good now, it’s not going to feel OK 10-15 years down the road.”

 

“Creating progress takes a conscious effort to be uncomfortable.”

 

“I store the negative stuff inside and turn it into productive action.”

 

“It’s not about having all the resources. It’s about being resourceful with what you have, and that includes your energies and motivations.”

 

“Almost everything can be turned into something good.”

 

“It’s not something we choose to happen, it’s something that’s happening to everybody – they’re just not realizing it.”

 

“If you want to be great at what you do, make a business built around a purpose vs. being built around making money.”

 

“Fill your boat with propellers – not anchors.”

My book tour is coming to a close with one event left in Phoenix, and I have to say that I’ve fallen in love with being in rooms surrounded by so many amazing people and learning from them as well. As you’ve heard in other episodes, I’ve found new takeaways from each stop – but so many reoccurring themes as well.

 

Another overarching topic is about taking things personally. Getting through this, of course, has a lot to do with mastering our mindset, but it helps to understand what it feels like before you get there.

 

Question: If you didn’t take things personally, what could you do in your life? I’ve asked this question at my book tour stops and the answers are endless, but the most common response? “I could be happy.” Whoa!

 

You see, when we worry about what other people think we’re putting ourselves in our own form of prison. Don’t stifle your truth just to please someone else. I highly encourage you to ruffle feathers, share your opinions and share who you authentically are at your core.

 

“If you’re not upsetting people, you’re not living in your truth – you’re living in fear.”

 

Be yourself. Stop people pleasing. Make some waves. I know this is a hard thing to do, but it feels SO good. Trust me, I’m a people pleaser through and through, but by sparing other people pain, you’re only adding more pain to your life.

 

“Freedom and truth are the opposite of suppression and resentment.”

 

Does this mean you’ll never take something personal again? Heck no. It is a constant practice of self-love and you will learn how to release it more quickly. It’s also one of our best teachers in life that helps us develop more compassion and understanding from where other people are coming from.

 

So the next time someone offers their opinion and you take it personally, make a conscious effort to release, forgive and move on…and live a happy life.

 

--

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • Why we need to stop taking things personally
  • Living authentically and in your truth
  • Why it’s an ongoing self-love practice to not take things personally

I’m still on my book tour, and it means the world to me to share the room with so many amazing women. And while it’s a massive dream come true, it’s also forced me to make some massive perspective shifts when it comes to traveling, speaking, signing books and taking pictures. I’ll be honest, it can be a lot for this introvert who is prone get to getting anxiety! But once I’m able to slow down and change my perspective on it all – there’s no way I wouldn’t do what I’m doing. It’s just all about changing the way we view things.

 

One question I pose to my book tour audiences is, “what’s stopping you from connecting in different relationships?”

 

“In order for things to change, we have to change how we’re viewing things.”

 

Whether it’s your body, career or relationships, it is imperative that we shift our perspectives before anything can happen. We need to shift into how we want to feel.

 

It’s amazing how this small little thing (OK, not always the easiest task), can give you tons of energy back. No matter what you’re feeling anxiety around, change the lens you’re viewing it through and see how you can make it easier. There could be a different (and better) way.

 

Do this, and you’ll be on the fast track to changing your life.

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • Shifting your perspectives
  • Why the way we view things may be preventing connection
  • What Lori’s book tour is teaching her

My interview with Heather Askisone and Timmi Jandro, the founders of Energy Muse, was a conversation that was meant to happen. In recent years, I’ve become super intrigued with the use of crystals and it was incredible to dive deeper, learn some new things and also receive validation on some crazy coincidences in my life that involved crystals.

 

Best friends since the 1st grade, Heather and Timmi weren’t always interested in crystals. In fact, both were in different careers (business and high-end real estate) up until they founded Energy Muse 17 hears ago. With their combined experience of healing and business, they are now taking the woo-woo out of crystals and empowering people to make change starting today.

 

I know there will be some skeptics out there, but I have a feeling they’ll feel differently after listening. It’s all about good energy! I highly recommend taking their crystal test on their site to see which stones you’re drawn to – they may just help you through your next challenge. (And if you feel called to do so, I would love it if you shared which ones you chose and what they mean!)

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • How did you both start out on this journey?
  • Who do you typically give the amethyst stone to?
  • When did you realize there was something there for you with crystals? What made you dive deeper?
  • Do you keep different crystals throughout your house or through different times?
  • What was the main reason you decided to write your book, Crystal Muse?
  • How does energy alignment with the moon relate to crystals?
  • Do you have any rituals in your book that help people feel grounded or rooted when they’re at a tipping point?
  • What is the most exciting thing that’s coming up for you with your book release?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • How Heather and Timmi first met and their backgrounds before founding Energy Muse
  • How energies/stones resonate with people differently
  • The innocence of picking a crystal for the first time
  • The shift that took place when Heather gave Timmi a prosperity necklace
  • How crystals can help us feel and serve as a reminder to slow down
  • Energy Muse’s internal challenge to pick one stone and work with it for 21 days
  • Their new book, Crystal Muse, and why it’s a book of secrets that offers rituals done in 11 minutes or less to render results
  • Emotional moon in Scorpio
  • Why humans are looking to reconnect with each other more than ever
  • What it means to “energetically cut the cord”
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

“When you feel, you start healing.”

 

“The more I stopped and slowed down, the more my life moved forward.”

 

“There are so many juicy concepts and conversations that one stone can help you evolve into and unearth.”

 

“The beauty of finding out who you are and where you are at that time is powerful.”

 

“The more we plug into the light right now, the more we are going to be able to get out of the chaos and confusion.”

 

“We, the people, are the bridge between the worlds – the earth and the sky.”

 

“You’re going to feel the pain, but it doesn’t have to last forever.”

I’m in New York this week having just wrapped up my stop in Boston for the book tour and it was another magical night. It’s so great having conversations with other women – especially those who have or are reading the book and are looking to connect with other women, too! It’s also super interesting to see what common questions are popping up between book tour stops.

 

One common theme that’s coming up, both at the book events and online, is how people are afraid to take leaps and try new things – they feel stuck. Personally, I know I’m wasting time when I start asking myself a lot of questions and stop taking action. All of the what if’s, stalling and procrastination – anything to prevent me from doing anything that might bring me some sort of pain. Does that sound familiar to you at all?

 

“We get stuck focusing on the pain instead of the motivation.”

 

But here’s the thing (and I have to remind myself of this daily), we don’t come out of the womb knowing what to do. Take riding a bike… can you imagine if as a child, we just kept thinking about the pain of the fall, scraping our knees or bumping our heads? We would have never ditched those training wheels! Instead, we imagined how free it would feel to cruise around.

 

So, take back your power. Quit focusing on the fall. Focus on the freedom. And don’t look back.

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • Why people feel like they’re “stuck”
  • Taking back your power
  • Why we need stop focusing on the pain and focus on the good

I am utterly fascinated at the diverse background of today’s guest and fellow podcaster, Luke Storey. With a journey that began as a high school dropout, Luke has hit career stops along the way as a musician, fashion stylist and now health and wellness podcaster. I honestly wish we would have had more time to delve into each avenue of his journey, but we were able to touch on so many inspiring topics the led him through each one.

 

A self-professed work in progress, I love that Luke focuses on staying teachable. He’s not afraid to examine each aspect of his life to find out what’s in alignment and what isn’t in order to live in his highest purpose day in and day out. Luke has committed to maintaining a balance of talent and passion, but that often means keeping his ego in check.

 

Tune in to hear how Luke manages to keep just the right level of humility without sacrificing his gifts or self-worth – all while staying true to who he is. This was such an insightful episode – I cannot wait to hear what you took away from it, too!

 

--   

 

Question Highlights:

  • What brought you to do what you’re doing now?
  • What did the journey feel like when you discovered that living in your potential soothes you?
  • What were some of the biggest things you pulled from each of your career stops?
  • What does it look like, on a daily basis, when you’re working through something while also being humble and still being fully you?
  • How can you practice being in a relationship when you’re not in a relationship?
  • What are you most excited about?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Luke’s diverse background in music, fashion, speaking, health and wellness and how it led him to the present moment
  • The balance of talent and passion
  • How Luke got his start in fashion styling
  • Living in different purposes throughout one’s life
  • The need for significance and one’s interpretation of humility
  • Integrating the ego with one’s endeavors and work
  • Not attaching worth to one’s gifts
  • The importance of staying teachable
  • The pursuit of pleasure
  • How Luke is getting clear on who he is and what he has to offer
  • Relationships – romantic and platonic
  • Gratitude work
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

“Once you figure any area of your life out and get some help, the only key to true fulfillment is passing that on to other people and living a life of service.”

 

“It’s owning that I’ve worked my ass off and learned a lot, but there’s also plenty left to learn.”

 

“Don’t believe everything you think.”

 

“Build a relationship with whatever it is that makes your heart beat all day, every day.”
