This past weekend, I attended an event for the network marking company I’m affiliated with it and it was incredible! Every year around this time I always reflect and am so grateful for the relationships it has brought into my life. I honestly never thought I would be part of this type of company (it took a long time and ton of fear), but despite the nay-sayers and my own initial reservations, I haven’t regretted it for a second.

 

So if you’re feeling fear around something and/or a pull on your soul, go for it and ignore all the background noise within and outside – I’m living proof. Trust me, after creating a podcast, network marketing and writing a book, I’ve come to trust my soul to guide me in the right direction. But in order to do so, I have to consistently keep chipping away day by day at my goals.

 

“Consistency trumps everything.”

 

If you keep showing up and learning, you will go exactly where the message on your soul means for you to go. And this often times means ignoring the protective voices in your head and of others. Ditch the stories that swirl around in your head and choose the thoughts that align with your message. And yes, we ALL have a message (that means you!).

 

“If you have a pulse, you have a message.”

 

Your message is as unique as you are, so if you haven’t pinned down exactly what it is, don’t worry, you just need to listen more closely and give it a bit more time. Even if you think that pull is something far too simple… stop and listen. Does it bring you fulfillment or happiness? Ding, ding – you’ve got a winner, and now you must protect it.

 

Full honesty? It takes a ton of bravery to create boundaries and protect your goals and message. After all, your goals are linked to your happiness. But let’s not forget faith. It is imperative that you have faith throughout the winding process of life.

 

“Faith is trusting that you’re forgiven in the face of no closure.”

 

What do I mean by this? Lately, I’ve had to say no to a lot of people who I’ve wanted to say yes to. I’m a people pleaser (old habits die hard), but I work on it every day. Sometimes when I say no or have to leave a conversation abruptly, I feel such guilt and fear that someone will be upset with me. The reality though is that they likely didn’t even notice. And if they did, they either understand or will forget it in a matter of minutes.

 

“Create boundaries around the things that are leaking your energy.”

 

Stop leaking your energy by carrying guilt for something that doesn’t exist! Give yourself the gift of closure – forgive and move on. I’m not saying that you won’t have your challenges along the way, but preserve your energy to fulfill your goals/message.

 

“Big, bold steps take energy and bravery.”

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • Why we need to create boundaries to protect our goals and message
  • The importance of whole-heartedly having faith and forgiveness
  • How you can gain energy back by getting closure

I don’t know about you, but I love the natural reset that occurs with a new year. It’s a way to reset our intentions and make sure our time and energy are in alignment with our goals. But often times, this extra time and energy never come around because we’ve already taken up the “extra” with anxiety and stressful thoughts that don’t serve us.

 

So today we’re talking about how we can get more time, energy and willpower. And the simplest (but not necessarily the easiest way) is to clear your mental space.

 

“Fuel the potential and focus on the possibility.”

 

This means no focusing on what could go wrong and only focusing on all the amazing things that could go right. Become aware of overwhelming thoughts. And when you feel those thoughts sneaking in redirect them to something positive. What would help you right in that moment? What do you need? A walk outside? A fresh cup of coffee? A talk with a friend? Making a to-do list? Whatever it is, do that. Seriously, find THE smallest thing that helps you feel better.

 

Next, close the loops! You know all those small, trivial things that happen day after day – let them go! For instance, you’re driving and someone cuts you off. You’re mad, and what could be a quick blip of annoyance turns into 20 minutes of fuming over a person who hasn’t thought twice about it. You just used up 20 minutes of your mental energy – and it didn’t help you (or that person) at all. Use your energy wisely. Use your thoughts to fuel your dreams, and get more drive and willpower. Don’t waste your mental space on a bad driver or something equally as simple.

 

Now I’m not saying that you can’t ever get mad – it happens! But we must remember to shift out of those low-level (draining) thoughts as quickly as possible. Think of low-level thoughts as energetic sandbags. For each low-level thought, add a sandbag and carry it around. Another low-level thought? Add another… Imagine if we never ditched these energetic sandbags, how weighed down we’d feel.

 

We need to close the open loops that are draining our mental batteries by forgiving and getting rid of any indecision in the process. Once you do, you’ll replace any pain, indecision, guilt or shame with more peace, ease, space and power in your mind. And I don’t know about you, but that’s my favorite space to be in.

 

--

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • Why the new year is such a great time for a reset
  • How to create more time, energy and space in your brain
  • What it means to close open loops
  • And much more

Peta Kelly's most favourite title is HUMAN AF. She is a conscious entrepreneur, author, speaker and philanthropist. She was recently featured in Forbes Magazine and was just ranked by Inc Magazine in the Top 10 Female Entrepreneurs changing the world.

 

She’s is an unbridled soul and barefoot bandit on a mission to unleash the jeaniius of GenY’s globally.

She dropped being a PhD science nerd at the age of 22 and went on the pursuit of that ‘thing’ that was calling her higher. That's when she found her first business pursuit in network marketing and She became a 7 figure a year earner in Isagenix by the age of 26. Her network marketing journey led her to her bigger, more global soul work and now she’s building a global enterprise, Jeaniius – a global hub of nakedly brilliant people, mobilized to create change for our planet through conscious enterprise and magical collaborations.

 

Peta teaches the new way to live, lead, earn and give and what excites her the most is bringing her brilliant, badass generation together as one team and one family so that we can gift our planet and our kiddies, an environment where they can thrive. Peta is an angel gifter and a silent investor, and thrives on expanding the cycle of abundance and contribution, especially when it allows young people to kick ass in their endeavors. A millennial with a love of millennials, Peta speaks on global stages, barefoot, to tens of thousands of people, and to millions through her various platforms, sharing visionary messages of conscious living to move hearts and minds to what’s possible.

 

Self-described as an alien, a “vessel” for what needs to flow through her, Peta is the creator of The New Way Live, Jeaniius and The Supercharged and she’s got her first book on the way in early 2018.

Peta was recently featured on The Rise Up movie with Michael Bernard Beckwith, Jack Canfield, Danielle LaPorte, Gabby Bernstein, Marie Forleo, Tony Robbins, The Dalai Lama and more.

 

She's a new Mum to her beautiful daughter Sol and has now found a new supersized passion for empowering women to create a beautiful pregnancy and birth experience.

One of my favorite (and most frequent) guests, Gabby Bernstein is back, and I know you’re all just as thrilled as I am. We even joked that she should be a co-host (you never know, right?). Today we’re talking about judgment, and I personally couldn’t agree more with the importance of talking about this topic. Judgment is the root of so many problems and whether we’re judging others or ourselves, it’s so bad that we barely realize we’re doing it.

 

Believing that deep down we are all loving, kind and compassionate people, Gabby felt called to write her newest book, Judgment Detox, in an effort to explain how judgment separates us from our true nature and instead makes us feel guilty, which in turn makes us judge more, which again makes us feel guilty and so on – the judgment cycle.

 

Fortunately, she has a six-step process that is virtually guaranteed to help us all out and it could not come at a better time for the entire world. Don’t miss out on this enlightening episode as she gives us a few sneak peeks of the wisdom in her latest book as well as a look into her creative process, asking for help and her hopes for a baby in 2018. I can’t wait for you to hear (and share) this beautiful conversation with others!

 

--   

 

Questions Asked in This Episode:

  • Can you share why you wrote Judgment Detox and what it is?
  • Was judgment something that kept coming up for you so much that you wrote the book?
  • When there’s an addiction to something, what do you think it’s serving and how do we interrupt the pattern?
  • What creative process do you use that honors the messages you write about?
  • How do you set up each of your writing sessions, and what rituals do you do beforehand?
  • How did you discover your writing strengths and weaknesses?
  • What’s one of the biggest boundaries you’ve had to set up or reinforce?
  • What does your self-talk look like when you walk away from stress?
  • Have you missed out on anything from implementing this boundary?
  • How do you enjoy the process when there are so many new opportunities coming your way?
  • What advice would you give someone who's ready to step out into their goals and dreams, but has fear around putting themselves out there?
  • What has been one of the biggest things you’ve implemented in 2017 that has helped you the most?
  • What is the best advice you feel you’ve ever gotten?
  • What is your biggest hope for Judgment Detox?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Why Gabby wrote Judgment Detox
  • How the book is designed to help change your beliefs that hold you back with her six-step process
  • Why judgment is the root cause of all of our problems
  • Gabby’s definition of the “judgment cycle”
  • What Gabby’s healing with her Judgment Detox process and what she’s still working on
  • The wounds that lie beneath judgment
  • The Emotion Freedom Technique (tapping)
  • How Gabby writes to heal
  • The importance of finding what makes you feel safe
  • Making it a priority to hire help sooner than later
  • Hiring people for their energy, not necessarily their experience
  • The timing of pregnancy and babies
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes:

“Judgment is such a huge separation from our spiritual connection and our alignment to a higher power.”

 

“When we judge we separate from love.”

 

“Witness your judgment without judgment.”

 

“I don’t believe in my judgment anymore.”

 

“I’m choosing to be happy rather than right.”

 

“Ask for what you want in 2018.”

 

“The more creative I am, the less space there is for judgment.”

 

“Change the way you look at things.”

Can you believe it? This is my last official quickie of 2017! What a ride 2017 was. And before I get into things here, and no matter what happened, I want you to acknowledge everything that happened – good and bad – and how it’s helped you learn.

 

Try to reframe the word failure, because it’s not always about winning or failing, it’s about learning or… learning. Yes! Can you we agree to take the word failure out of our vocabulary? As Nelson Mandela once said, “I don’t lose. I either win or learn.”

 

We need the contrast to help guide us where to go next. Personally, there we several things that I hoped to accomplish or have a different outcome within 2017, but it just made me realize that those dips and darkness were needed to amplify all the good things.

 

“The failures just tell you what to do next.”

 

And it was often the opposite of what I thought. Whether you lost a business, a friendship or a relationship, you learned. We are always learning and all the things we learn only help us live in our purpose. But here’s the thing, in order to realize all this, we need to find the courage to go against the grain. We need to say no. We need to do things that challenge what others say is the right thing to do.

 

You don’t need new goals; you just need to have the courage to say no to things that aren’t elevating your life. And trust me, it’s not going to be easy, but when you really dig deep and think outside the box, you can say truthfully that you lived a life that fully made you expand into the human you were meant to be.

 

“Step into your courage and into your truth.”

 

Wishing you abundance and bravery in 2018 – I cannot wait to see you rock your life!

 

--

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • Why failures are part of our success
  • How deeper courage won’t show up until you call upon it
  • Why you don’t necessarily need new goals to live in your highest purpose

Photographer, jewelry maker and my guest today, Liana Louzon and I go way back (more than a decade) to my fitness competition days. It’s safe to say that a lot has changed, but one thing that hasn’t changed is the positive, driven and encouraging vibe that she gives off just by speaking with her.

Originally from Russia, Liana made her way to Canada at the age of 14 and shares her journey of assimilating and learning a new language. While there were times of struggle, Liana learned to tap into her intuition and has since used that very skill to forge ahead in her creative businesses – namely her jewelry company, Rocking Vibe.

If you’re a creative or longing to get MORE creative, be sure to listen in to hear how Liana taps into both her intuition, gets in her “zone,” and as a result creates a springboard for creativity.

 

--   

 

Questions Asked in This Episode:

  • When you came to Canada and didn’t know the language, what was that like?
  • When did your interest in fitness begin?
  • Where does your immediate response to not only follow your passion but to think big with it come from?
  • What does it feel like when you’re not creating and sharing?
  • When you’re so busy between your business and being a mom, how do you turn the creative light switch on?
  • How do you put your flare on your creativity?
  • What are some things that you’re doing right now that contradict each other, but you love it?
  • Could you share some ways that can help others step into their power?
  • Do you have any anything in your life that you’re struggling with or working through?
  • What are you creating right now with Rocking Vibe and what direction do you want it to go?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Liana’s creative journey
  • How non-verbal communication helped Liana
  • What drove Liana to become a photographer
  • How Liana’s desire and passion overrode the fear
  • The importance of becoming intuitive with yourself
  • Liana’s struggle with asking for help
  • Liana’s formula that helps keep that creative switch turned on
  • How Liana gets into the creative zone
  • The challenge of balancing parenting and creativity
  • The value of people watching
  • How crystals can keep you grounded and connected to the material world
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes:

 

“Fear means progress is on the rise.”

 

“Fear is exciting. Show up, trust and choose bravery.”

 

“Even when I didn’t believe, I knew what I wanted.”

 

“Knowing your weaknesses is just as important as knowing your strengths.”

 

“Be intuitive with who you are.”

 

“Allow yourself to evolve.”

--

Born and raised in Moscow, Russia, Liana immigrated to Canada at the age of 14. While learning English as a second language, Liana found that artistry (including her passion for photography as well as jewelry making and beading) helped her feel grounded and became a way of expressing herself as she faced the challenges of life in a new country. As her life evolved, Liana became a mother which ignited her desire to use her passion to contribute to a better future. In the summer of 2014, the idea of Rocking Vibe glimmered in her heart, and it wasn’t long before that spark became a fierce fire and Rocking Vibe was created.

With the New Year a week away, goals and resolutions are at the forefront of everyone’s mind. And while this is a super exciting time of year, it can also be super overwhelming, too. Especially if you don’t feel you were successful with the previous year’s goals.

So here’s what I suggest this year (and every year for that matter): Focus on RIGHT NOW, and you’ll figure out the HOW later.

“It’s now about the how, it’s about knowing what you desire.”

Get clear on one or two goals and make sure they’re in alignment with your desires. Nothing is set in stone so let your feelings guide you. If you’re having trouble getting clear, try sitting for five minutes or more in the morning (or whenever you have the time) and ask yourself, “What would bring me the most joy?” Additionally, “How can I serve others and still bring myself joy?”

Sometimes it’s a matter of reframing and refocusing on things that already exist in your life. For me this past year, it was my online Body + Soul Program. I knew I wanted to attract more people into my tribe, but the more I focused on those that I didn’t have, the more lack I felt. So I reframed and focused on the people who I already had.

“I manifested more of what I wanted because I was grateful for what I already had.”

Focus on what you want. Focus on the those “pop” or “soul hit” moments that make you feel alive while also fulfilling your purpose. Pay attention and let those moments continue to pull you – even if your ego pushes back. There will be resistance, but you can always refocus, reframe and get back in alignment with your true desires.

In This Episode You Will Learn:

  • Why it’s important to gain clarity on 1 or 2 goals
  • Why you don’t need to focus on the HOW when it comes to your goals
  • Why we must pay attention to our “soul hits”

The other day I was talking with a friend about my recent trip to Nosara, Costa Rica. And one of the things we were talking about was their relationship with Mother Earth. The people there are so conscious of what they are putting out and also regulate what others bring in and take out. For example, there are very few garbage cans and even throwing away a gum wrapper was a challenge.

 

While this did get frustrating, I love that it forced me to be more aware of my surroundings and what trash I was carrying around or just throwing away for someone else to deal with. And as my friend and I continued to talk, we also realized that this concept ran parallel with us as humans, too.

 

What trash are you carrying around? Are you disposing of it in a healthy way? Are you sick of carrying it around? When you hear gossip, are you throwing it on someone else? Or are you up-cycling it into something better?

 

We must be more conscious of what we’re putting out into the Earth – both literally and figuratively – because we live in a cause and effect world. Our actions affect other people and things.

 

“Our physical surroundings affect our spiritual state.”

 

What is one small thing you could decide not to pick up or dispose of in a healthy way? I challenge you to find one thing and approach it with intention and see how you feel. And please share with me what you discover.

 

-- 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • How aware Costa Ricans are of Mother Earth
  • About the parallels between the physical and spiritual world when it comes to collecting trash
  • Why we must be more conscious of what we’re carrying, what we’re putting out and what we’re throwing away.

In case you don’t remember this tidbit about me, I love learning new things and I kind of geek out when a ton of scientific knowledge is dropped. And this is just one of the many reasons why I loved talked with entrepreneur, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) expert and mind coach, Andy Murphy.

 

Originally from Liverpool, England (love his accent!), he made his way to Australia 15 years ago where he created an extremely successful real estate business and discovered NLP in a sales and marketing environment. Years later, after a business setback, Andy was looking for a new and completely different challenge and incorporated his knowledge and expertise in NLP into the world of coaching and consulting, and the rest as they say is history.

 

The timing of this conversation was impeccable and helped me tackle some recent obstacles I faced in regard to creating and speaking. Tune into learn what NLP actually is, how it can help retrain your thoughts and belief systems and help you in all areas of your life. Andy also gives us a sneak peek into some of his other favorite practices that help him live a life he loves (and how you can too). You don’t want to miss this knowledge-packed episode!  

--   

 

Questions Asked in This Episode:

  • What does it feel like when you follow your intuition and how did you know that’s what you should do?
  • How do we start to know that we have power within the moments of fear, panic etc.?
  • What does it take to get someone unstuck? Why are we stuck and how can we move past the place that’s keeping us there?
  • What is NLP and what are some practical ways you’ve seen it used?
  • When someone is trying to win over an audience are there certain things one can do to connect with them more quickly?
  • What are some of your favorite ways of using NLP in your life?
  • Do you meditate or visualize? What does that look like?
  • What are you most excited about right now?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • How Andy’s journey led him to neuro-linguistic programming (NLP)
  • The power of intuition and how you can tune into it
  • The importance of a-ha moments and perspective shifts
  • Tapping into your “alter ego(s)”
  • Building new brain pathways
  • Why you shouldn’t feel the fear and do it anyway
  • How NLP helps retrain your nervous system by designing your thoughts and belief systems
  • How to develop instant rapport
  • The connection between memories and feelings
  • And so much more…

 

Quotes:

 

“It’s not who you are, it’s where you are.”

 

“If you love what you do and you’re coming from your heart and your gut feels good, you’re winning.”

 

“Get rid of other peoples’ opinions and focus on your own growth, and I can promise that your life and business will match with where you’re at.”

“Know it so you can change it.”

 

--

Andy left Liverpool, England 15 years ago and traveled to Sydney Australia, where he discovered Neuro-Linguistic Programming in a sales and marketing environment. Breaking multiple sales records in investment real-estate and at the top of the business in Australia, he was head-hunted to New

Zealand.

 

At the age of only 26 he opened a company developing a project to build a 100 million dollar resort in the Fiji Islands. After marketing the company over in Dubai alongside multi-billion dollar developments the global real-estate industry began to slow down.

 

Wanting a new challenge, Andy changed his focus and took his knowledge and expertise of NLP into the world of consulting and coaching.

 

Andy now takes his skill and passion around the world. Such as the USA, Saudi Arabia, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia the list goes on, where clients seek him out for private consulting including entrepreneurs, world champion MMA stars, professional sports athletes, multi-millionaire business owners, TV and film producers, TV and stage actors, trauma survivors and even

Royal Family.

 

Andy`s true passion is to use the most cutting edge psychological tools blended with his own 21st century version of eastern philosophy to help global clients excel to their full potential. This passion is what drives him every day.­

New Year’s is just around the corner and I know that several of you are already working on your resolutions. Or maybe you’re a goal-getter all year round – and I applaud that! However, are you just interested in your goals or are you committed? Let’s talk about the differences between the two…

 

Now when I say committed, I mean committed. When you’re just interested, it may feel like your committed, but in the back of your mind you’re always looking for a way out. You haven’t set a date, you’re not risking anything or putting anything on the line. You’ve still got the opportunity to get out at any time. When you’re committed – you’re all in.

 

“A commitment is a one million percent YES.”

 

Here’s how the language around it changes. When you’re interested, it’s “Someday I will…, or “I would do x-y-z, but…” You’re always seeking out excuses why you can’t without realizing it. However, when you’re committed, you use phrases like, “I will…,” I am…” When obstacles arise, you offer no excuses and instead seek out solutions because you know that these will help someone in some way down the road.

 

“Solutions are the blessings you teach.”

 

Committed people surround themselves with people who don’t tolerate excuses, whereas those who are interested tend to find themselves with those who support those excuses. Weekends are a numbing time-out away from your goals. Those who are committed look for what they need in order to stay committed. Again, there is no way out.

 

“When you’re just interested, you always leave the window cracked open – there’s always a way out. When you’re committed, there is no way out, just through.”

 

And before I go, I just want to share one more difference and it’s in regard to worrying about what others think. You can likely guess this, but when people are just interested, they DO care what others think. When you’re committed, the only thing you’re worried about is not fulfilling your potential. Your worries feel purposeful because it’s not just about you.

 

If you’re feeling more on the interested side and want to get more committed, I encourage you to

 

“Take action from your future self who is committed.”

 

Keep that momentum going and please share with me what committed actions you’re taking today – I would love to hear from you!

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • What the differences are between interested and committed
  • How our obstacles help us teach and help others
  • How the time spent on weekends makes a difference

Any WWE fans out there? Regardless if you are or not, you’re going to love the conversation I had with WWE and Total Divas star, Nia Jax. As a plus-size model and TV star, she is busting body stereotypes left and right and wants other women to unapologetically own who they uniquely are, too.

 

Tune in to hear how Nia’s journey brought her to the WWE, what she had to overcome to get there and how she uses that platform now to empower other women.

--   

 

Questions Asked in This Episode:

  • When you were younger, was becoming a WWE star a dream of yours?
  • Where did you have to go mentally in order to show up at your WWE tryout?
  • What made you keep going?
  • What would tell someone who is waiting for the perfect moment to do something?
  • What is something that because of a no has made you stronger?
  • What is something that you are extremely grateful for right now?
  • Why do thinking it’s so important for women right now to use their voices and platforms?
  • What is something you wish more people knew about you?
  • What have you learned to embrace about yourself that before you wished was different?
  • What are some boundaries you’ve had to set in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle and mindset?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • How Nia got her start in the WWE
  • How she’s helped bust stereotypes
  • The importance of taking action before you’re ready
  • Why WWE is the perfect for Nia
  • How the NO’s lead to your perfect fit
  • What drives Nia to do what she does
  • Women’s empowerment
  • Being different and owning it

 

Quotes:

 

“Don’t wait on your wait.”

 

“Right now I’m as good as I’m going to get today.”

 

“Women need to use their voice so they’re not settling for anything less than they deserve.”

 

--

There’s one thing that’s painfully clear when someone steps in the ring with Nia Jax: She’s not like most women.

The 6-foot-tall Jax has towered over other women for as long as she can recall. She was kicked out of activities like karate, kickboxing and judo as a child because someone always ended up getting hurt at her hands.

Though Jax eventually turned her attention toward the world of modeling, she still hungered for competition. A cousin of The Rock, she made her way to the WWE Performance Center where she learned to harness her aggression in the squared circle. She immediately blew away all other Superstars in terms of power, claiming all of the WWE Performance Center’s female lifting records.

Unsurprisingly, Jax has dominated her competition since her debut, squeezing the air out of her opponents with a crushing bear hug before viciously slamming them into the mat to earn the victory. She carried that power with her to Raw as a surprise selection in the 2016 WWE Brand Extension Draft and immediately established herself as a future power player in the Women’s division.

From day one, Jax claimed that greatness was her destiny. Her size and power may ensure that she reaches it sooner than anyone expects.

This is the time of year where little bursts of inspiration or positivity are most needed, am I right? With the hustle, bustle and stress of visitors and visiting family, it’s hard not to let it get to you at some point.

 

So this year I’m already switching my focus from stress to excitement. I am in control of how I feel and how I act. No matter what old beliefs pop up when spending time around family and friends, I will not let it derail my current beliefs.

 

I know that most of us have those certain people who criticize their lifestyle, career or habits, but don’t take the bait! You’re not going to change them and you’re certainly not going to change for them, right?

 

Go in with the energy that “it’s all OK,” and let all the little stuff roll off your back. Now this doesn’t give anyone permission to walk all over you, but if you can just LOVE and LISTEN a little more, and release expectations, you’re going to close out the holidays on a high note.

 

See what happens when you can allow, accept and have compassion instead of going on the defense or judging. How much can you grow and let go of this holiday season? Tell me what your plans are for propelling yourself through the holidays and into 2018? I want to hear because we’re all in this together.

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • Why relationships are our biggest teachers
  • How to show up with the energy that says all is OK
  • The importance of being a better communicator and listener

We’ve all heard how difficult it can be to become a Navy SEAL – the physical challenges alone can make or break one’s success. Today’s guest and host of The Unbeatable Mind podcast, Mark Divine, had that part covered, but he ensured his success by mastering his thoughts as well.

 

From a disempowered background and core story, Mark didn’t always have dreams of becoming a Navy SEAL. In fact, he actually had a successful career as a CPA, but he longed for something more that also appealed to his athletic side.

 

Tune in to find out how Mark shifted his thought patterns and discarded those that didn’t work to accomplish his goals then and how he continues to apply those skills in his life and businesses now. I love how Mark’s approach links the heart and mind – you’re going to be amazed at just how simple it can be once you can quiet your mind and focus on one task at a time.

  • What led you to begin you Zen practice?

  • If someone is feeling disempowered, what would you recommend for a visualization?
  • What goes on in regard to training at your retreats?
  • How can you break through mentally?
  • What are you most excited about right now?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

“Create a positive memory of the future.”

“We always have value and a gift to give, no matter what happens to use, as long as we’re here.”

Mark is from upstate New York and did his formal undergraduate education at Colgate University. His years at Colgate University were focused on athletic endeavors such as competitive swimming, rowing and triathlon racing, interrupted by brief episodes of academic activity. After graduation from "the Gate" Mark started his professional career as a CPA with Coopers & Lybrand in New York City. Clients included luminous and no-longer existent financial firms such as Solomon Brothers and Paine Webber. 

Four years later, with an MBA from NYU Stern School of Business in his briefcase, he left behind the suit to pursue his inner vision to become a Navy SEAL officer. He was 26 when he graduated as Honor Man (#1 ranked trainee) of his SEAL BUD/s class 170. Mark was fortunate to serve with many great men and women on active duty for nine years and in the reserves for eleven...retiring at the rank of Commander in 2011.

After leaving active duty in 1997, Mark started his second business career as an entrepreneur. He co-founded the successful Coronado Brewing Company and launched NavySEALs.com in the same year he left active duty. To this day, it is the leading website for gear and information about the SEALs. 

Mark's business career was interrupted by a stint as an Adjunct Professor of Leadership at the University of San Diego, where he was pursuing his Doctorate in Leadership, then by a one-year recall to active duty in 2004. The recall took him to Baghdad with SEAL Team One to conduct a special project for Naval Special Warfare Command surrounding the role of the USMC in Special Operations. While in Iraq, Mark developed Kokoro Yoga, which allows you to see, feel, hear, and live the goal you are looking to achieve through warrior visualization. 


In 2007 he launched his CrossFit affiliate and the now internationally known SEALFIT program to provide transformational personal and team training experiences. The training utilizes an integrated warrior development model he developed, called Unbeatable Mind, which draws from his 20 years as a SEAL and business leader, 25 years as a martial artist and 15 years as yoga practitioner.  He now hosts a highly rated podcast on iTunes called Unbeatable Mind.

SEALFIT and Unbeatable Mind are uniquely effective at elevating clients to a higher level of operating, thinking and leading - encompassing the full spectrum of human experience: Body, Mind and Spirit in Self, Team and Organization. Mark advises and trains a diverse group of clients through his Unbeatable Mind and SEALFIT programs including: Olympic medalists, CEOs, Superbowl champions and other professional athletes.

I just returned a few days ago from my third trip to the Costa Rican jungles and it was such an awesome trip – even though every time I go, I feel a ton of resistance around it. And that’s because it throws me out of my routine (and it’s a LONG journey to get there).

 

But here’s what this trip helped me with this round – it forced me to take time for myself. It forced me to just sit in quiet in nature (with the occasional monkey making his presence known). You see up until Costa Rica, I was a feeling a little blocked creatively, which was super frustrating because I had a talk to prepare for and an eCourse to come up with. But on the flight home – because I allowed myself the space to let that creativity come flowing back in – the ideas poured out! I couldn’t believe how easy it felt.

 

Now, you might be saying, “This doesn’t apply to me because I’m not creative.” Newsflash – you ARE creative!

 

“We are all creative beings.”

 

You create and put things out in the world every single day – and there are more forms than you think. It’s not just writing, designing or painting. There is an outlet that makes you feel alive – you just need to tune in to find out what it is.

 

Now as you can imagine, while we need to practice creative space all year round, with the holiday upon us, it’s more important than ever to create space so we don’t lose our marbles when family and friends visit. So just like I stated above, you must carve out time just for you.

 

Schedule in your time and practice fierce boundaries for parties or other commitments that don’t excite you. No is a complete sentence and you aren’t responsible for making everyone happy. Use the holidays for what they were meant for – joy and connection.

 

Ask yourself, “What do I need each week to ensure a happy, healthy holiday season for myself?”

 

I challenge you to look at your calendar and make those unbreakable “space making” appointments with yourself. In order to create and transform we must find that space.

 

Let me know how you do! I love hearing from you!

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

 

 

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • Why we need to create space for ourselves regularly – especially during the holiday season
  • How scheduling appointments for yourself is crucial
  • How to set fierce boundaries

I came across my guest, Wes Chapman, as I was preparing for my TedX Talk and couldn’t stop thinking about his story. With a tumultuous childhood from day one including abuse in numerous forms and being told that he was too broken to fix, Wes is walking proof that we are only who we choose to believe we are.

 

Now Wes has committed his life to helping others who feel or have been told they are “broken” and encourages everyone to take control of their lives, ditch the victim mentality and get into hero mode.

Listen in as Wes vulnerably takes us through his journey of rediscovering his self-worth and identity and how it led him to an entrepreneurial career of helping others.

 

--   

 

Questions Asked in This Episode:

  • How do we start to tap into or figure out our self-worth?
  • Did you have something that was holding you back and if so, how did you go about taking the steps to move past it?
  • What is something you are most excited about?
  • Is there anything in your life that you’re still grabbing at even though it’s not making you happy?
  • What are some of your favorite ways to connect with family and friends?

 

In This Episode We Talk about:

  • Wes’s tumultuous childhood and how he gained both his self-worth and identity back and how it led him to help others
  • How to tap into your self-worth
  • Why we need to truly understand empathy
  • Letting go of the past and taking your power back
  • Self-control and self-understanding
  • Taking responsibility for the past in order to take control of your life
  • The power of labels, how they create your identity and how limiting they are
  • Why environment is crucial to your well-being
  • Getting back to where you find peace and comfort
  • Disconnecting from technology (and how Wes suggests doing it)

 

Quotes:

 

“Put the victim to bed and wake the hero up instead.”

 

“Your brain only understands what it’s experienced.”

 

“Anything that’s in the rear-view mirror you can 100% take ownership of that.”

 

“If you can positively think your way into a great life, you can negatively think your way into a crappy life.”

 

“Rip the labels off – you are what you choose to be.”

 

“The day of excuses is over.”

 

“I don’t believe in controlling other people; I believe in people controlling themselves.”

 

--

Wes’s message of “waking up the hero” has been adopted by thousands of people around the world. He draws from his unique life experiences to deeply connect with people of all backgrounds, creeds and beliefs. He is the founder of A HUMAN PROJECT, an organization that incubates creative, scalable solutions to systemic problems and gathers together the greatest minds to solve global issues in education, health and society.

 

With a background in technology, design and entrepreneurship, Wes has worked with clients like Verizon, Microsoft, A&E and has been the recipient of multiple “App of the Year” awards from Apple. He holds patents on several medical advancements. His work has been covered in multiple media outlets and publications, including: INC, CBS, TechCrunch, ABC, Forbes and many others.

 

As a speaker, Wes has shared the stage with eminent business owners and thought leader alike, including: Robert Herjavec, Sheri Salata, Gary Vaynerchuk, Randy Jackson, Peter Diamandis and many others.

 

And as co-creator of THE HUMAN GATHERING – named “The #1 Leadership Conference” by Forbes, Wes is consistently bringing together today’s foremost leaders in business, technology, philanthropy and the arts.

For the past month, I’ve been feeling a lack of inspiration, and when that feeling comes up, shortly after the feelings of unworthiness and not being good enough pop their heads back in the picture. It brings back glimpses of the crushing anxiety that I once faced. I knew it was time to start bringing the joy back into my routine (did I mention how much I love routine?).

 

So I decided to enlist the help of a coach. I needed more than the cheerleader voice in my own head – I needed compassion from someone who’s been there.

 

“I don’t want all of the things I’ve wished for to be wished away because I’m anxious.”

 

Even though I’m happy and grateful for all of the amazing things that are happening in my life and business, I was also getting bored. In order to do that I knew I needed to shake things up a bit and change up my routine

 

“Even creatures of habit need to shake things up.”

 

But this creature over here LOVES her routine and has a ton of resistance when it comes to changing it – even if it’s doing things that I like to do. Anyone else? In order change my thoughts around the new, I needed to find the routine and grounding in it.

Shero (noun): a female who fights for what she believes in and never gives up, even if it means fighting alone.

 

I had the honor of interviewing not one, but TWO Sheroes on today’s episode – Cassey Ho and Lisa Bilyeu – the hosts of The Sheroic Podcast. Before starting The Sheroic, both women were already successful entrepreneurs in their own right (Cassey is the CEO of Blogilates and Lisa is a founding team member of Quest Nutrition), however both share that there wasn’t a huge “break” that landed them in either role.

 

Tune in to hear about each woman’s journey thus far and how they’ve risen (and continued to rise) to meet the challenges and obstacles that get in their way. I know you will absolutely fall in love with their comforting, loving and vulnerable natures. This hour was seriously a warm-up for more inspiring conversations to come – enjoy!

Warning: As I recorded this episode, my palms were sweating – I can’t make this up. And that’s because as the episode title suggests, I am getting super vulnerable and super transparent.

Ever since I started writing my book, I’ve been in full-on creative mode. I want to create and I crave creating – in ALL different forms. Even as I’ve been the busiest I’ve ever been, I’ve made it a priority because my ideas had to come out.

“Creating the time to get creative has opened up in an insane vortex of things I want to do.” 

To name a few of my creative outlets – dance, guitar and now…wait for it…spoken word. I’ve been receiving massive downloads recently that have spurred me to delve into this arena. And today, I’m going to share one of my poems with you.

Look, I’m not a rapper or poet…but maybe I am? 

“Who are we not to claim these titles even though we haven’t done them if it’s coming through us?”

I am so grateful that I have my mastermind women, Lindsay and Danette, to act as a reminder of my soul’s wishes. If your soul calls you to do something – do it! Don’t judge, just get those ideas up and out! It really does help if you have a person or two who you can share your ideas with. Hint: You know it’s life-shifting when you have a “full-body yes and a full-brain hell no!”

 

I hope you enjoy the poem I share. I now dare you to be vulnerable with me and share with me what it felt like to express yourself. I can’t wait to hear!

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • How to show up as your true self to the world
  • About the importance of creating time to get creative
  • Why you need to get your ideas up and out

“It’s not, ‘you are what you eat.’ It’s ‘you are what you digest.’”

If you haven’t heard of Elana Meta you soon will. You probably know by now that I’m all about tribe and making impactful connections with others, so it will come as no shock why I connected with Elana after listening to our conversation.

 

As a dance catalyst and teacher, Elana has made it her mission to create spaces for women – and men to help them merge the emotional and logical parts of the brain. While most recently hosting small groups in her home to help women step into their power, she wanted to create a larger event (Wild Vessel) that could help more women and men, too. Elana helps these individuals see themselves more deeply by moving the body to quiet the mind.

 

Elana invites you to an experience to help you see things more clearly in a substance-, device- and shoe-free space (ha, check your shoes at the door). If this sounds like an event that resonates with you, see the Resources section on this page.

  • What is something you want people to know about your event that we haven’t talked about yet?
  • What are you wanting to reclaim more of in your life?

  • Helping women step into their power
  • Merging the emotional and logical parts of brain

Twenty-eight years ago, Lorna Jane, founder of Lorna Jane Active, was a fitness instructor who just wanted to find fitness wear that made her feel good. So much so that she used her own swimsuit to craft her own outfit. Her students liked them so much that they too began asking for their very own Lorna Jane clothing. And while it was never her intention at the time to create a clothing line, Lorna Jane Active was meant to be.

 

Making others feel good doesn’t stop at her clothing line though. In her most recent book, Love You, Lorna focuses on the importance of self-belief. At one point she lost a portion of that self-belief and self-love and worked to regain it back. It’s through her experiences and learnings that she hopes to help other women find their self-confidence, self-love and purpose again – and create an amazing life.

 

Lorna is one of the most-inspiring humans I’ve had the privilege of interviewing and I was positively giddy that we were able to talk in person. Her energy and positive attitude is contagious and can be heard throughout our conversation. I know you’re going to love listening to her as much as I did.

 

Be sure to share this episode with a friend and don’t miss out on Lorna’s giveaway that she mentions in the show!

“The most powerful way to raise the vibration of our world is to fully honor who we came here to be.” – Kristin Ace

 

Today I want to talk about you becoming YOU. Not the “you” you think you should be, but the you that honors your soul – at all corners of it. So ask yourself, in what ways are you honoring your soul? Now, in what ways are you absolutely denying your soul, suffocating yourself or cutting yourself off?

 

Chances are that if you found more things in the latter categories you’re feeling out of alignment with your higher self, which is why with every choice we make, we must choose the choice that keeps us aligned. It’s not easy sometimes (OK a lot of the time). We typically don’t roll out of bed in the morning and feel connected. We must create the experiences that fill our souls.

 

I know you may be questioning what that really feels like, but trust me. You’ll know you’re following the path your soul wants you to take when you feel in flow, connected and free especially in terms of self-expression. Keep in mind that just because you’re doing things that are on this path doesn’t mean that you won’t feel any fear or stress. I often find that the fear isn’t the around the actual act, but the thoughts around doing the act. Fear is still necessary (but it usually helps us in the long run).

 

“Fear is a direct indicator of where you need to go.”

 

So, what’s an experience that you’re being pulled toward right now? Seriously, anything – nothing is too small, big or outrageous! Bike riding, writing, creating, painting, horseback riding, bungee jumping… What will make you feel alive, bring you awareness, excitement, relaxation or learning – or all of the above and more? Both projects and play are equally important, so again, listen to what your soul is calling you to do.

 

“You already know what you are. It’s time to create those experiences to become you.”

 

For the next 30 days, I challenge you to create one soul experience a day. It doesn’t have to be anything big – sometimes the small stuff leads to bigger shifts anyway. See how people react to you. You’ll likely notice that people are more drawn to you when you’re in alignment. I can personally tell when I’m in my highest self because when I go for runs I get more high-fives and more smiles all around – and I FEEL more creative.

 

Give yourself the space to hear your soul and I would love if you would report your findings in the comments of this episode’s IG tile @loriharder. I cannot wait to read them!

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • What it feels like to be in and out of alignment with your soul
  • Why we must create experiences that connect us with our highest self
  • Why fear or pain is an inevitable component of finding the real you
