In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • The current Tribe Called Bliss book tour
  • Why “the messy stuff” is good for you

 

Show Notes

Messy is a part of everything. It’s vital to be messy in the beginning. We don’t get the good ideas if it’s NOT messy.

A lot of times we stop ourselves from doing things because we think about the things that we DON’T want to happen; the worst case scenario parts.  But we need to focus and change our perspective around this.

So many of us are stuck in those thoughts that you’re literally it won’t even allow yourself to move forward.  START! Start Googling, take the next action to make the path less scary.

Your mantra for this time is: “I’m going to leap, it’s going to be messy, and that is going to be perfect.”

 

Quotes

"I’m going to leap, it’s going to be messy, and that is going to be perfect."

Show Notes

I am so beyond grateful for today’s guest, Dr. Joe Dispenza. His books and teachings were at the very beginning of my journey and completely shifted everything for me. I believe there are moments in life that impact you so deeply and you’re never the same. In this episode, I talk about that moment and how everything I looked at changed forever. 

As an international lecturer, researcher, author and educator, Dr. Joe believes that each of us has the potential for greatness and unlimited abilities. This is why his passion has led him to educate thousands of people on how they can rewire their brains and recondition their bodies to make lasting changes. I can tell you firsthand that this is what he did for me. I truly believe his teachings were the beginning of rewiring the way I think. With a passion for neuroscience, epigenetics and quantum physics to explore the science behind spontaneous remissions and evolved consciousness. You will be blown away by Dr. Joe’s miraculous stories! 

So please, get comfortable and listen to every single word of our incredible conversation and if this hooks you, I encourage you to go grab one of his books and read it!

 

Question Highlights:

  • Did you always have this mind-body connection or do you feeling like it got awakened after your accident?
  • What advice do you give people who are in an environment that isn’t helpful for where they want to go?
  • How do you not take things personally or navigate that world of reflection?
  • Can you paint a picture of what it looks like when a person knows what to do but can’t quite visualize it?
  • What’s the connection between moving your body and getting into a new environment and accelerating that change?
  • Can you tell me about your events?

 

Quotes

"It’s so much easier to forget our vision than it is to remember it.”

“We’re innately wired to be creators.”

“The power that made the body heals the body.”

“Your personality creates your personal reality.” 

“If you’re not being defined by a vision of the future, then all you’re left with are memories of the past.” 

“Wisdom is the memory without the emotional charge.”

“The unknown has never let me down.” 

“My definition of the creative moment is when I forget myself.”

 

Joe Dispenza, D.C. is an international lecturer, researcher, corporate consultant, author, and educator who has been invited to speak in more than 32 countries on five continents. As a lecturer and educator, he is driven by the conviction that each of us has the potential for greatness and unlimited abilities. In his easy-to-understand, encouraging, and compassionate style, he has educated thousands of people, detailing how they can rewire their brains and recondition their bodies to make lasting changes.

In addition to offering a variety of online courses and teleclasses, he has personally taught three-day progressive workshops and five-day advanced workshops in the U.S. and abroad. Starting in 2018, his workshops will become week-long offerings, and the content of the progressive and advanced workshops will be available online. (To learn more, please visit the events section at: www.drjoedispenza.com.) Dr. Joe is also a faculty member at Quantum University in Honolulu, Hawaii; the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies in Rhinebeck, New York; and Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. He’s also an invited chair of the research committee at Life University in Atlanta, Georgia.

As a researcher, Dr. Joe’s passion can be found at the intersection of the latest findings from the fields of neuroscience, epigenetics, and quantum physics to explore the science behind spontaneous remissions. He uses that knowledge to help people heal themselves of illnesses, chronic conditions, and even terminal diseases so they can enjoy a more fulfilled and happy life, as well as evolve their consciousness.

As a NY Times best-selling author, Dr. Joe has written You Are the Placebo: Making Your Mind Matter (Hay House, 2014), which explores our ability to heal without drugs or surgery, but rather by thought alone. He has also written Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself: How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One (Hay House, 2012) and Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind (2007), both of which detail the neuroscience of change and epigenetics. Becoming Supernatural is Dr. Joe’s fourth book. His film appearances include HEAL (2017); E-Motion (2014); Sacred Journey of the Heart (2012); People v. the State of Illusion (2011); What IF – The Movie (2010); Unleashing Creativity (2009); and What the #$*! Do We Know? & Down the Rabbit Hole, extended DVD version (2005).

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • The need for tests in order to realize our dreams
  • Fear of tests
  • Supporting yourself

Show Notes

I just returned from being on an Oprah Magazine Cruise with Holland America and am still sitting in the experience. I met so many amazing people and got to speak to and coach a different demographic than I’m used to. And while having lunch and random conversations with so many of these people throughout the week, I realized that we’re all the same, and we’re all tested at one time or another. 

Never be ashamed of your dreams or the thing you want to do the most. There will always be tests along the way that test your faith. And while they’re often super uncomfortable, they are 100% necessary to help you realize your dreams. Instead of giving up, say “bring it!” This is your faith practice. It’s digging in your heels, being scared, and not feeling good – and moving forward anyway. After all how can you be tested if you’re not experiencing it?

“It’s OK to be afraid, but it’s not OK to give up." 

So lean in. Experience it. Let time help you work through it. Your faith is tested by often extreme measures. Learn how to support yourself through it. Who can you call? Can you pray, meditate or read a book? What keeps that faith alive? Just as you would study or prepare for a test, you must prepare (not avoid) the tests that come up around your dream.

“Don’t resist the test, prepare for it – it’s how you pass.”

These tests will strengthen you and help refine what you’re meant to do. Stop avoiding them.

“You don’t get better or get the reward unless you keep showing up – no matter the result.”

So keep showing up. Let go where you can and know that you’re not alone. Something beautiful is just around the corner. Are you ready for it?

Show Notes

I’ve been following today’s guest, online marketing expert, Amy Porterfield, for so long and we have so many mutual friends that I feel like we’ve known each other for years…but we’ve never even talked before this interview. I’m not sure how it’s possible, but we definitely made up for lost time with our interview.

If you’ve never heard of Amy and you work with online marketing in some way, shape or form, or you’re just plain curious what it’s all about, you’re not going to want to miss our conversation. We discuss Amy’s three stages of business and all the feelings and tools that go along with each of them. I can’t tell you how much of what she shared helped me and my team as we were right in the middle of one of our own launches.

This episode was filled with valuable tips, tools and advice for all levels, and I can’t wait to hear if any of her tips help move you to the next level, too! If you know of someone who could benefit from this episode, please share!  

 

Question Highlights:

  • Who are we talking to when we say “new” to the online world?
  • What are some of the first steps that someone would take to move through the emotions of overwhelm?
  • What do you think is important in the early stages? What will help break you through to phase 2?
  • What was your phase one like?
  • What woman were you at phase 2?
  • What advice do you give around plateaus?
  • In phase 2, what were your biggest blocks?
  • What things came up in phase 2 that you thought were going to take you down?
  • What do you experience at the start of phase 3?
  • What are the plateaus of phase 3?
  • What are some of the biggest tools of phase 3?

 

Quotes

“Every decision you make is not set in stone – you can pivot and reinvent yourself and do new things.” 

“Stop playing small in the places where there’s opportunity to play big.” 

“If you become the person who finishes what they start, you’re going to be in a prime spot to start scaling.”

“Look for experts who are laser-focused where you want to go.”

Show Notes

I have been on a major rollercoaster this year (an awesome, but scary one), and I think it is so vital that I share with all of you why stepping into and becoming the your highest self is the hardest thing you’ll ever do. 

I’ve been tackling some really big things lately – lots of speaking gigs, book tour events etc., and not gonna lie, they’re all freaking me out. But here’s my trick to getting through them all – I’m letting go of any expectations I have around the outcomes.

“In order for me to work through fear, I have to fully accept anything and everything can happen.”

There is no ONE thing that is going to make or break my life. And as I navigate each any every new thing, I gain more and more clarity around being truly me. Full honesty, I feel the most alive and “myself” that I’ve ever felt. You see, there is zero room for being something that you’re not, because eventually you’re going to get caught being yourself. For me, that’s showing the side of me that loves to perform spoken word, sing (future podcast performance?), and swear. Parents, this may mean putting “earmuffs” on the kiddos now and again. Keep in mind, I’m not trying to purposely offend anyone – it’s just how I express myself on occasion.

For example, in this episode I’m sharing a 30-second excerpt of a new spoken word piece I’m working on…I drop the F-bomb once, but it’s because that was the word that moved me in the moment. It’s about being yourself with a bit of discernment for your audience, right? 

So here’s to stepping into a new version of yourself! Who’s with me and how soon do you want to do it? Whenever that moment takes place, please let me know so I can cheer you on!

I’m so excited for you all to hear my conversation with the magical trifecta that is Betches Media – Samantha Fishbein, Jordana Abraham and Aleen Kuperman. With a following of more than 6 million followers on Instagram, their presence has taken social media by storm with their funny and light-hearted approach to wellness, dating, careers, pop culture, politics and more. If you haven’t heard of them, I highly recommend traveling down their entertaining Instagram rabbit hole (I did and it was incredible).

In an effort to offer the missing female counterpart to the “bro” culture, these three college friends decided to share their voice and opinions with the masses. With an obvious need fulfilled, their website at the time took off and has since morphed into podcasts, an eCommerce store, books and so much more.

With two books already under their belts, a third book, “When’s Happy Hour,” which focuses on careers is set to release Oct. 23. Whether you’re in college, unfulfilled by your job or fulfilled but driven for more, this book will teach you how to succeed in a career and make yourself better – with lots of laughs along the way.

These women are redefining what it means to love what you do, and I’m so happy they’re taking us all along for the ride.

 

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • What Betches Media is all about and how it was founded
  • Taking action and creating content
  • Taking an honest look what you’re good at – and what you’re not so good at
  • Importance of planning
  • Self-awareness
  • Monetizing what you’re good at
  • The ups and downs of eCommerce
  • How Betches found their voices through speaking the thoughts that other people were thinking
  • How Betches deal with criticism
  • How Betches manage their friendships
  • Who Betches wrote “When’s Happy Hour” for
  • Redefining what it means to love what you do

 

 

Resources:

 

 

Question Highlights:

  • Could you explain and break down what you’re doing in your business?
  • How did you all get started and what was your intention in the beginning – and how has it changed since then?
  • Why did you pick the topic for your new book?
  • In the beginning of your business, what were the parts you loved to do and what parts were challenging?
  • What do you do to protect and nurture your relationships with each other?
  • What are your favorite parts of what you’re doing now?
  • What is a question you wish more people would ask you?
  • What are some new challenges coming up for your business right now?
  • Who is your new book, “When’s Happy Hour,” for?

 

 

Quotes

"It’s better that people are saying something, even if it’s not good, than not saying anything at all. At least criticism shows that people care.”

“Even the most amazing job that allows you to follow your passion is work.”

“Follow what makes you happy, what you’re good and what moves you, and live in a way that aligns with that.”

 

Betches is a multi-platform media company for millennial women to experience comedy and empowerment in an honest environment. Founded in 2011 by Cornell University alumni Aleen Kuperman, Samantha Fishbein, and Jordana Abraham, the company was launched as a blog with the core column “Betches Love This.” Betches has since expanded to become a robust, digital destination that boasts a strong social media presence through their cult Instagram with more than 6.2 million followers, @Betches, two New York Times bestselling books, I Had a Nice Time And Other Lies… and Nice Is Just a Place in France, e-commerce platform, Shop Betches, and vast editorial content including multiple pop-culture, political, and new-centric podcasts and video.

This past weekend I was invited to write and share a new spoken word poem at my soul sister, Danette May’s event. To say I was terrified is putting it mildly, but I did it! And while I’m still processing my the journey and the emotions around it, one thing I know for certain is that my fear is always the X that marks the spot when it comes to what fulfills me and makes me feel like I’m living in my highest potential.

I shared a couple clips of the poem on social media, but have gotten several requests to hear the poem in its entirety. Always one to feel the fear again (why?!), I’ve recorded it on this episode and have provided the words below. If my words pull at your soul and you know someone else who would benefit, please share. Thanks so much for all of your support!

Here we go…

I got up today only to find that I’m still not yet where I want to be

A little less “I woke up like this” 

A little more - “existential crisis” – feeling stuck in my reality.

 

When I think about who I am now, compared to who I think I’m supposed to be 

I wake up every morning, AND INSTEAD of doing things that set me free

I put on a straight-jacket and wear someone else’s identity. 

 

Not even accepting myself on my own ID 

Height one inch taller

Weight 10 pounds smaller

Anyone else fear a lie detector test at the DMV – or is it just me?

 

Just the thought of trying to change my life makes me feel defeated 

Like I got the short end of the stick

Or like this bitch over here got all the talent 

And I got cheated.

 

When I close my eyes, I can see my life’s vision

But when I open them, I can’t see past my email, my thighs, my to-do list and dirty kitchen

I mean what’s it gonna take to reach my dream, be seen, and get attention?

Instead of growing my mind

I put all my energy towards beauty, titles and Instagram mentions.

 

When will I be enough?

Thanks to Fairytales and Ariel, I’ve spent my whole life chasing people and stuff

“Look at this stuff isn’t it neat? Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete?”

 

Still waiting for my Prince Charming, castle and Fairy Godmother

Jerry Maguire said, “You complete me” 

So feeling enough must ONLY come from a love.r

 

So many mixed messages, it’s no wonder we’re confused

The world tries keeping us busy stressing over low carbs, waist trainers and red-bottom shoes

They sidetrack us from our purpose with diets and promises of youth

But it’s a choice to decide to be committed to finding and living your truth.

 

The other day I was walking past a man in conversation with his mate

He said, and I quote, “You deserve the life you tolerate”

I just about choked

Cause at that point in my day I was feeling upset

Sorry for myself because there are unlived dreams I haven’t met yet

If what I tolerate is the life that I’m living 

then you’re telling me it’s been my choice to not use these gifts I’ve been given?

 

They say through ownership I can get my power back

I gotta be honest – easier said than done

I was really hoping this whole personal development thing would be a little more fun…

 

True story – I was recently at an event like this

Sitting in the audience

And from the stage I felt the speakers words hit me in the soul much like a deliverance:

I am not what you think I am; I am not what I think I am; I am what I think you think I am.”

Let me repeat that….

I am not what you think I am; I am not what I think I am; I am what I think you think I am”

Moral of the story is the only thing that’s stopping us, is what other people think 
Get your mind off other people’s shit 
And put your soul back in the driver’s seat! 

The only thing wrong with you is that you think something is wrong with you.

 

Everything is right with you 

In spite of you

Ignoring the higher you

The answers are all inside of you

So why are you

Gripping onto others view

When what they think of you is… 

NOTHING. Because they’re only thinkin’ about themselves.

 

The truth will set you free,

But first it will piss you off

And the truth is:

If you keep fighting for your limitations, you get to keep them

It’s time to stop choosing suffering 

and choose to fight for your queendom. 

 

I know the life I’m born for and the woman I’m supposed to be

I’m embarrassed to tell you my soul is an undercover celebrity

So where do I go if I believe the life I have now must be disputed 

It’s like I can see I’m on screen

But my voice has been muted

It’s been so long since I’ve used it, or maybe I never learned how

But lately something’s stirring, rising up telling me my time is now.

 

What stops us are the lies we choose to believe

It’s an imagined future of pain that we think we perceive 

It’s when I’m alone that my fears go viral

Next is panic, then my anxiety starts to spiral. 

 

I’m picturing judgment, comparison, an imagined future that’s not even real 

It’s our past informing our future telling us how to feel!

I believe the reason we feel pain is because we need to bridge the gap,

Between our fear and our faith in our source and its unlimited tap.

 

In order to become the woman I’m chasing

I have to let go of the woman I’m facing

The mirror is the place where you have to fall in love

With all the scars from our past 

Reconfigure them from curses, into gifts from above

Trusting that what you have now is what you need to begin

And who’ll you’ll become will transform as you start to step in.

 

If I don’t start to take action now, it will be consequential 

Because my biggest fear is dying, without reaching my highest potential

‘Cuz it just takes one to change your family tree

and your bravery and courage is bringing your ancestors to their knees

They may not have been able to use their voice or have what you do

That’s why you must take action,

They have blazed this trail for you.

 

But we have to wake up from the lie, and emerge from our comas

To stop sleepwalking through life requires more than a kiss from a prince or diploma.

 

See, the magic of life is that it gives you clues

And if you’re open and seeking you get glimpses of truth

And in case it’s still in question, YES you’ve been chosen, you’re forgiven it’s written

But you gotta SHOW UP - STAND UP - RISE UP - stop sittin’.

 

The map to your bliss is to follow it, and keep showing up

It’s going to be messy, your hands will shake, you’ll get criticized and you’ll want to throw up

Becoming the biggest version of you is the scariest thing you’ll do 

You’ll have darkness and pain and some friends will leave you.

 

But I’m going to let you in on life’s ultimate hack

It’s that you get to choose gratitude even when it feels like the universe doesn’t have your back.

God wants to use you

He guides those who are willing

And it’s not up to you to decide if your dream is worth killing

 

You’ve got a soul contract to live into your life’s call 

Don’t worry about failing, you will, it’s a part of it    

But you’ve got sisters here to catch you when you fall

Choose love

Choose forgiveness 

Choose courage

Choose your truth.

 

Every single time you show up 

It gives more hope for our youth

Stay close to what makes you feel ALIVE

Don’t just survive 

That’s not why you’re here

But you gotta continue to do the things that help you get clear.

 

PAY ATTENTION to soul hits, nudges and winks

AND whenever you get them, take action and don’t think

Sometimes when I’m quiet, when I’m running, or if Eminem’s rapping

I’ll lose myself in the music and feel God start the tapping

On three, everybody get up, we’re gonna start clapping

 

3, 2, 1…

 

Sister you're a star – you’re a strong girl

Playin’ in your gifts - gonna start to change the world today

You got glitter on yo' face

Your hair’s in place

Spreading your magic all over the place

 

Singin’

 

We will, we will rise up

We will, we will rise up

Show Notes

My friend, founder of Organifi and now author, Drew Canole is back on the show and I couldn’t be more happy as I feel a bit like I need to redeem myself after my last interview with him – I can’t believe how nervous I was last time! Since that time, not only have we hung out multiple times, but we’ve participated in a week-long retreat in Costa Rica together as well. I never knew it was possible to laugh so much! Drew has definitely helped me see that fun is a requirement of up-leveling our lives!

Drew has a unique ability to help others tap into different parts of their lives and uncover who they truly are. And one of the primary ways Drew is doing that today is through his new book, You Be You, where he guides readers to “detox their lives, crush their limitations and own their awesome.” Why achieve your goals or present the world with a counterfeit version of yourself when it will never feel completely true to who you are?

Be prepared to have a lot of laughs and hear a lot of wisdom in our candid conversation. And if you’re looking for a way to unlock that next level of being YOU, definitely pick up his book!

 

Question Highlights:

  • Why did you pick the title of your book?
  • When you’re in your “light body,” what does that feel like?
  • In the past, who did you think you needed to be in order to navigate through life in a successful way?
  • Do you ever go through “seasons” – a winter or a dry spell?
  • Once you achieve a goal, what do you do next? How do you unlock the next level?
  • In your life right now, is there any area where you’re not fully showing up as yourself?
  • What are the conversations coming out of your Organifi book club?
  • Why is this book making such huge shifts?
  • Why should people grab your book?

 

 

Quotes

"When you choose to do something in the moment, you have to be present.”

“When you’re present is the only time you can manifest or materialize your goals, desires and dreams.”

“The world doesn’t need a counterfeit you. The planet needs a re-remembering of who you truly are.”

“When you start to give more love to yourself, you open up a world of possibilities.”

 

Drew Canole is an author, transformation coach, and founder of Organifi. Drew has helped thousands of women and men revitalize their health, ignite their vision, and shift the course of their life forever. After reaching a dead end in his own health, Drew discovered the chasm of difference between going through the motions and living with radical intention. He now helps people tap into the "Big You" to create the change they never thought possible.

Fair warning to you before you start listening to today’s episode – I am en fuego! Having just attended Lewis Howes’ Summit of Greatness and being surrounded by 1,500+ big thinkers, there’s no way I couldn’t be. It’s events like these that force me to take chances and go for the things that scare the living crap out of me!

 

“Fear is your invite for growth.”

 

The purpose of life is growth and progress. We are all meant to find what makes us fulfilled and happy, but sometimes that’s the thing we fear the most.

 

As an exercise, I want you to write down the 10 things you’re most afraid of – they can be big or small. These are your next steps. From here, circle the least scary step – or perhaps the scariest step. Whichever you choose, act on it, no matter how uncomfortable or scared you are. Rejection or failure is inevitable, but the biggest gifts are on the other side.

 

No, I’m not super human, but I will say after receiving 21 rejections on my books, I am grateful for them because they helped me land the publishing company that liked it! Plus, consistently doing the things that I have fear around helps me grow and throughout that process I’m also showing thousands of others that they too can do it.

 

Most recently one of my fears is about sharing a spoken word poem I wrote for my friend, Danette May’s event this weekend. I love doing this, but I’m terrified of what others think! (Be sure to tune in because I’m sharing a small portion of it with you.) But here’s the thing, I want to grow and I don’t want to leave this world living up to anything less than my highest potential. I do mess up while reading it, but I’ve left it in because I want you to see that sometimes we have to mess up and let others see it in order to free them as well. I hope it gives you some of that freedom, too.

 

So today, stop playing small. Do something messy, unplanned or share something that doesn’t feel good. And be sure to share it with me over on IG…I love hearing from you!

I am so thrilled today to have Tom Bilyeu on the show! I recently had the amazing opportunity and experience of being interviewed on his podcast, Impact Theory and I couldn’t wait to continue the conversation and learn even more about the similarities in our lives and business – and this time, pick his brain.

 

Similar to my journey, Tom grew up in a family who struggled with their weight, and broke the pattern by choosing to pave a healthier way for himself and as result change the trajectory of his life at the same time. That’s why today he’s so passionate about helping others who struggle with their weight. However, Tom is the first to acknowledge that it’s not always an easy path. In fact, when it comes to success in weight loss or a business or career, nothing is guaranteed – except the pain or struggle. And to get through any of that, you must take action and also accept that you may not be right about x-y-z right now. We have to be willing to make changes if we want to see change.

 

Tune in to learn just what Tom does that helps him do just that. He shares so many tangible takeaways for all of us to start looking at what we’re doing right now and more into our next level of life. Please let me know what thoughts or actions you put into place because of them!

Today I’m talking about the vital topic of taking action and curing those moments where you’re just sitting in pain thinking. The last week (typically in the mornings is when I struggle the most), I’ve been overthinking – everything. Have you ever caught yourself in a downward spiral like this? And it’s during moments like these that I’m really trying to work on shortening the amount of time they last.

 

“Pain is inevitable, but suffering is a choice.”

 

Here’s my hack – even though I drag my feet sometimes. TAKE ACTION!

 

“Action cures anxiety.”

 

Here’s the thing, even something infinitesimally small and new leads to new results. Plus, when your mood is more neutral, and less in a place of suffering, you’re in a better place to welcome new ideas and opportunities. I’m not saying you need to take action all the time…far from it. After all, we need time to relax and connect with other people, but please do not choose suffering! Take the action that will make you feel better. (Trust me, I wouldn’t tell you anything that I wouldn’t tell myself!)

 

I want you to know that I see you taking uncertain actions despite those doubts in your head, and I’m cheering you on. Thank goodness for tribe because even though I’m scared too, I know I have a group of people that have my back regardless of what’s going on. And I’m here to tell you that no matter what you’re going through right now, I just want you to know that I think you’re magic. We are all magic and we’re not meant to suffer and play small! You need to keep pushing forward and sharing your uniqueness with the world!

 

Thank you so much for listening and supporting my podcast. If this message resonated with you, please share with a friend and be sure to shoot me a note on IG – I would love to hear how it resonated with you!

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • Taking new action for new results
  • Limiting the time between taking action and suffering, and designating a time to rest
  • Why suffering is a choice

You know how every now and then you get lucky and have a conversation with someone who just “gets” you, your journey and how your brain works? Well, today’s guest, Robyn Youkilis checked that box. Growing up in a family that used food as a source of love, comfort and connection, I could completely relate. Don’t get me wrong this is a great thing, however the breaking point for Robyn (and myself) is when we started gaining weight and that warm, fuzzy connection went away and instead turned into a difficult connection.

 

Once she made this realization, Robyn set out to create a new conversation around food and weight. She didn’t want to view things as “good” or “bad,” rather she wanted to slow things down and figure out what foods would best support her body.

 

After much trial and error (that still happens on a daily basis), she now teaches others that it’s OK if you don’t have it all figured out – it may even take decades. It’s all about finding a formula that works for your body and adheres to what your intuition is telling you and keeps you in alignment. She also touches on how motherhood impacted her relationship with food and how it led to an impactful shift in her life then and now.

 

I had such a great time connecting with Robyn during this conversation. If you’re someone who struggles with your relationship with food, this episode is a must listen (and her book, Thin from Within, a must read).

 

--

 

Question Highlights:

  • What is your life philosophy and how did you get to this place?
  • What did the process of slowing down look for you?
  • How has food become a foundation for everything you’re doing?
  • What’s something in your life right now that you’re so excited about that you weren’t able to do before because food/body was taking up so much space in your brain?
  • What is lighting you up the most right now?
  • What is a question you wish more people would ask you?
  • Do you have a secret dream that you envision for your future?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Robyn’s relationship with food and how it changed at age 13
  • The emotional and physical weight of not living in alignment
  • Food as an experience
  • Robyn’s initial resistance with motherhood and how it was a major foundational shift for her
  • How Robyn has learned to slow down, connect with her body and intuition and gut, teach from that place and “calm the eff down”
  • How to connect with your body
  • Setting intention behind activities to achieve alignment
  • Finding your intuitive food voice
  • Robyn’s power yogurt parfait and Rule of Five Plate
  • The connection between your food/body and success in other areas of your life
  • Rockstar Coaching Program
  • Robyn’s new book, “Thin from Within”
  • Why Robyn wants people to how she “does it all”
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

 

“You feel good when you're connected to other people.”

 

“My body is my home.”

 

“Let your own story and journey be what you want it to be and know that it’s OK.”

 

“Go with your gut.”

I’m fresh off a mastermind call with my closest sister friends and I’ve come to the realization that it’s OK to be a walking, breathing contradiction. Typically, when it comes to being in alignment, we’ve always talked about lining it up with our true purpose or highest potential. While I still believe this is a part of it, I also think a bigger part of it is being aligned with your truth in the present moment.

 

In order to feel this “truth” though you have to sometimes be out of alignment and feel those feelings, too. Sometimes this means feelings of darkness and ugliness or worry and insecurity. It’s super important though that we not stay in these feelings too long. Acknowledge them and that you feel out of alignment, and make the conscious choice to leave that dark place (or whatever emotion you’re feeling) when the time is right. Remember that this is all a part of the human experience and determine if there is something you could do to make yourself feel better.

 

Admittedly, I’m in a bit of a dark season right now. I have a ton of amazing things happening in my life now, but there’s this nagging voice in the back of my head that tells me I need to set some more goals and accomplish more. I’m in a season where I need to find self-worthiness without having a ton of goals to prove that I am. Can anyone relate?

 

Have I navigated my way through this particular season yet? No – I’m still working through it. So, right now I’m giving myself grace and allowing myself to feel all the feels. I’m choosing healthy outlets such as walks, nourishing foods and yes, sometimes crying it out, because choosing a downward spiral isn’t going to serve me in the long run. I’m committing to move forward…period.

 

I hope this helps you if you’re also going through a similar season. Continue to nurture yourself and one day, when things clear, you’ll realize that it was all meant to help you keep in alignment with your true purpose.

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • Redefining what alignment means
  • Why your value shouldn’t be tied to your accomplishments
  • The seasons of life

I love a good story and today’s guest, author Alex Banayan has a great one – so much so that parts of it have become part of my husband Chris and I’s daily walks. Thank goodness I met him in person when Chris interviewed him so I knew whose stories he was actually talking about. ;) Another fun coincidence, we’ve both been on the Price Is Right, but Alex actually WON and used those winnings to fund his new book, The Third Door.

 

Alex shares with us his seven-year book journey that lead him to interview some of the world’s most successful people to show how they broke through and launched their careers. But let’s not downplay the fears and obstacles that Alex had to navigate through as well. From disappointing his family and losing his father to insecurity and being turned down by potential interviewees, Alex was persistent and now helps others conquer obstacles of all kinds – internal and external.

 

Alex truly is a gifted storyteller and I know you’ll be able to relate to some many facets of his journey. You don’t want to miss it!

 

--

 

Question Highlights:

  • Now that your book is out in the world, what has been a response that you weren’t expecting?
  • What was the whole point of writing your book?
  • What does pain with awareness look like for you right now?
  • Do you think there’s always a way for anything you choose or just for the moments when your gut pulls you that way?
  • Have you ever had to let go of helping someone in your life because they’re not ready to help themselves?
  • What was a story that freed you up the most?
  • What is something that shook you before your book came out?
  • What are you most excited about right now?
  • Who is the ultimate person you want to read your book?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Alex’s seven-year book journey
  • Using pain as a motivator
  • Evolving motivation
  • Alex’s insecurity while writing The Third Door
  • How Alex’s pain evolved into curiosity
  • How Alex’s Price Is Right winnings funded his book
  • Why being naïve can be an advantage
  • The difference between fear and courage
  • Why Alex’s family didn’t initially support his book
  • Welcoming fear to get more comfortable
  • How fear was a universal element in achieving a dream in all the people Alex interviewed
  • Sharing in order to connect with others
  • How to conquer internal and external obstacles
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes

 

“Pain with awareness is our teacher.”

 

“You can give someone all the best tools and knowledge in the world and their life can still be stuck, but if you change what someone believes is possible, they’ll never be the same.”

 

“Courage is acknowledging fears, analyzing the consequences and then deciding you care so much about it you’re going to take one thoughtful step forward anyway.”

Sep 20, 2018

This past weekend I spoke at the Thrive event in Las Vegas (which was amazing), and I also came to the realization that my life is one big classroom. You see, I got sick the morning of the day I was supposed to speak. I’m not sure if it was food poisoning or the flu, but needless to say I wasn’t going anywhere for a while. It was like life was flashing a big neon sign with a message that was impossible for me to ignore. In fact, there were multiple nudges, messages and signs that day, but I’ll leave those for another episode as I’m still marinating in a few of them. One thing I’ve come to realize though is that:

 

“Every single thing that happens can be a breakthrough lesson and everyone can be a teacher.”

 

Now this doesn’t mean that nothing bothers us, but it does mean that we get to choose how we view a particular situation and move through it. Yes, you may struggle and it may be annoying or painful, but the sooner we can accept it, the more quickly we’re able to advance to the next level.

 

“The sooner we accept the obstacle as a lesson or the person as a teacher, we get to move through it faster.”

 

As Tom Bilyeu shared with me just the other day, “Struggle is guaranteed, success is not.” In order to get to the next level, we have to experience it all. And if we’re going to struggle, we may as well get something useful out of it, yes?

 

Compare it to a rookie’s journey to becoming a pro. There’s always that point where the rookie is thrown in the game and the team may win or they might lose. The rookie will learn the do’s and don’ts – most likely the hard way. Whatever they experience though, it’s necessary because the coaches make the decision to move up that particular player if they don’t see them in action.

 

Once you realize that obstacles and people (yes, even those rude people in traffic) are here to teach us, you will experience a whole new level of freedom. It will be uncomfortable and you might shout expletives now and again, but practice and sharpening the skills of love, compassion, boundaries and saying no will help you step into that next level of your life.

In This Episode Lori talks about:

 

  • Why life is our classroom
  • Why struggle is inevitable
  • Viewing obstacles as lessons and people as teachers

With a lot of speaking engagements going on for me right now and in the near future, I’ve had to really stop and observe my anxious tendencies and the thoughts that often go along with them. It’s amazing how powerful our thoughts and inner dialogue can be. Today’s episode is all about freeing yourself from the labels that hold you back and knowing that you’re the only one who has that power to do so.

 

How often have you heard, “I have such anxiety when it comes to speaking in front of people”? Hand raised over here because I’ve definitely said it to myself before. But here’s where we change it. We don’t “have” anxiety. We “do” anxiety. We don’t “have” no energy. We “do” no energy. And it’s in this doing that we have the choice as to what we do or don’t do. See where I’m going with this?

 

I’d like you to do a quick exercise to take back your power. First, write what you “have.”

 

            Example: I have anxiety.

 

Now cross that out and write DO instead.

 

            I have anxiety. I DO anxiety.

 

Now describe how you “do” anxiety right now? What actions are supporting this feeling? What thoughts?

           

            I’m drinking coffee. I’m checking messages right when I wake up. I’m eating crappy food and isolating myself. I keep telling myself how nervous I am and that            I’m going to forget what I’m saying on stage.

 

Take notice of the conversation in your mind and watch how you’re talking to yourself. If you’re anxious, reframe and tell yourself how excited you are and why. Replace your thoughts with better thoughts and take your control back!

 

No lie, it doesn’t always go fast. But keep trying on different feelings until it does feel good.

 

“Choose how you feel.”

 

Tell yourself, “I can undo any feeling I don’t want to be in.”

 

And remember, once you start putting out these better feelings, you’ll notice that you’re attracting more too.

When you have conversations like the one I had with founder and CEO of MakeItHappen.Life, Henry Ammar, you can’t help but leave a better human. Pure goodness exudes from Henry and it’s no wonder since he’s made it his mission to boost self-love and self-confidence by creating practical transformative experiences through fun dynamic events that infuse pop culture with empowerment.

 

Experiencing firsthand in his younger years an ongoing lack of self-confidence and self-love, Henry now wants to help the younger generation today, because they’re still not seeing the beauty and truth of who they are.

 

Listen in to hear all about Henry’s journey thus far, what he’s doing to help others, what’s coming up and what he sees happening down the road. I personally cannot wait to see all of this ideas and partnerships come to fruition, because any event with him will make a huge impact on the masses.

Just a head’s up that today’s topic may be a touch overwhelming for some, but I don’t want anyone to get too worried, because when it comes to shifting and changing a person’s beliefs – it’s actually never-ending.

 

I’ve discovered recently just how important it is to take inventory of one’s tribe, aka the people who we’re spending the most time with. Keep in mind that this can be actual people, television, podcasts etc. I like to also call them reinforcers.

 

I want you to do a quick exercise and write down the following:

 

  1. List five people who you’re around the most.
  2. What is the main belief, habit or limiting belief or thing that they are reinforcing in your life?

 

When completed, review and determine if these habits and beliefs are reflecting back at you. Are they holding you back? Don’t panic if it’s not what you thought. I’m certainly not here to tell you who to hang out with and I certainly won’t tell you to ditch friends who aren’t “positive” enough. But I am telling you that you may want to load the other portions of your “plate” with more positive or up-leveling people. Crowd out your plate in a positive direction.

 

Maybe that means joining a new group or mastermind? Maybe it’s adding more podcasts, books or self-development events to your life. Whatever it is, just make sure to, “set up a life and tribe that reflects where you’re going and not where you’re at.”

Money doesn’t guarantee fulfillment and today’s guest, Patrice Washington, is hoping more women catch on. As an award-winning author, transformational speaker, hope-restoring coach, and media personality, she started her first 7-figure mortgage-brokering business with her husband before graduating college. Their business was wildly successful until the recession crashed and they lost everything.

Picking herself up after this experience, she realized that she had a lot of knowledge but needed to seek more wisdom. She dug deep and knew it was more important to chase her purpose – not money. She discovered that life is about so much more – relationships, your well-being and your faith to name a few. Recognizing the power of this discovery, she created the 6 Pillars of Redefining Wealth, and now teaches others how they can tie each pillar back to producing wealth – and stay true to who they’re called to be.

I had such a great time talking with Patrice – she is such a down-to-earth, purpose-driven woman who relies on faith and her own unique calling to help others find theirs as well. I hope this episode empowers you to break free from any limiting beliefs that you have about yourself and helps you step into your highest purpose and calling.
