Benjamin Hardy has been the #1 writer on Medium.com since 2016. He writes about self-improvement, motivation, learning, and entrepreneurship, organically receives over 1,000 new email subscribers daily, and works to help his readers live in alignment with their highest values and visions.
Last month, Benjamin sent me a copy of his new book, Willpower Doesn’t Work: Discover the Hidden Keys to Success. I started reading it immediately and was hooked. It’s phenomenal. Challenging everything we’ve been taught about what it takes to improve our lives, ourselves, and achieve our goals (hint: it’s not willpower), Benjamin enlightens us with a new paradigm that I believe is revolutionary in personal development.
Today, he joins the podcast to talk about the book, what it means to be 100% committed to anything you truly want to achieve, and the power of shaping your environment. If you’ve ever set goals and fallen short of them, this is a must-listen.

After retiring at age 40, Tim Rhode became the creative force behind 1lifefullylived.org—a non-profit that helps people master their lives, so together WE can change the world.
He is also the co-founder of GoBundance, which is a tribe for healthy, wealthy, generous men who choose to lead epic lives.
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Tim now for quite a few years, and I can truly say, he’s one of the most positive, uplifting and generous people I’ve ever met.
Although Tim barely graduated high school and never attended any college, he went on to create the life of his dreams. After a very humble beginning (he was a grocery clerk until 25) Tim went on to build a real estate empire, which has afforded him the opportunity to retire at the early age of 40.
Today, Tim shares the story of how he created financially freedom and the steps you can take to do the same!

In October of 2016, I woke up in the middle of the night, struggling to breathe. Days later, I was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia—a very rare and aggressive form of cancer—with a survival rate of 30%. I was told that I had a matter of days to start chemotherapy, or I would die.
I took a somewhat unique approach to beating cancer that combined the best of Western medicine with holistic practices to detoxify my body as the chemo wreaked havoc upon it. Not only did I survive, but I experienced less side effects than most cancer patients.
Today, I’m doing my first solo episode, in a very long time, to tell my story and present the Miracle Equation that helped save my life. Whether you know someone who has been diagnosed with cancer, you yourself have been diagnosed with cancer, or you simply want to minimize your risk of ever getting cancer, this episode is for you.

Today I got together with my long-time friend, Carey Smolensky, to discuss an important topic that I don’t often talk about – happiness. Carey wanted to know where it sits in relation to passion and the way I live my life, and it was a joy to explore.
Carey has also been helping to produce spectacular live events for years, including our annual Best Year Ever Blueprint, and after years of us twisting his arm he’s finally producing his own first major event—The Passion Summit—in Chicago on May 7th and 8th.
At The Passion Summit, I will be presenting a brand new keynote—titled What Matters Most?—and helping to answer this universal question that we don’t typically ask. (If you’re interested in attending The Passion Summit, click here to register. Use the code YOPALVIP to save up to $350.)
But before that, I think you’ll really enjoy today’s conversation about Happiness & Fulfillment.

For the last two years, I’ve become a huge fan of Aubrey Marcus – podcast host, author, and the founder and CEO of Onnit, the leading supplement company for human optimization.
Within the first few minutes of hearing Aubrey’s podcast (two years ago) I felt an instant connection with him as a deeply thoughtful, highly evolved, and exceptionally brilliant individual – one who I could learn A LOT from – and I think you will too.
Aubrey recently released the book Own The Day, Own Your Life (available now for pre-order) - his personal manual for getting the most out of your body and mind on a daily basis. I’m about halfway through the book now, and I made significant changes to my daily routine – after reading just the first few chapters.
Today, Aubrey joins me on the podcast to talk about his book, how to flip the script when the voice in your head is telling you not to do something that’s good for you, and how we can set ourselves up for success in a world that doesn’t always have our health and well-being in mind.

After many years earning 22 times the national average income, Jayson Gaignard realized that he wasn’t 22 times happier, so he decided to walk away. He felt stuck on the entrepreneurial hamster wheel, building a business he hated to buy things he didn’t need, to impress people he didn’t necessarily like. While he looked highly successful on the outside, he was completely bankrupt on the inside.
Fast forward to today, and Jayson’s life is virtually unrecognizable from what it was only a few short years ago...
Praised by Forbes as a “Networker to Watch” in 2015 and Founder of one of the top events in the world for entrepreneurs — MastermindTalks — which has featured world-renowned entrepreneurs such as Tim Ferriss, Gary Vaynerchuk, James Altucher, Guy Kawasaki, and hundreds more.
Today, Jayson joins the podcast to share stories about recovering from his personal rock bottom, along with his strategies for building a community that makes a meaningful impact.
You’ll also learn why the right combination of ignorance, confidence, and hard work can help you achieve your biggest goals!

There’s always someone to thank and appreciate. So why don’t we tell people what they mean to us more often? Why do we let excuses like — “I’m too busy” or “What difference will it make?” — get in the way of showing our appreciation to the people who bring value to our lives?
John Israel, Founder of the Mr. Thank You Project, joins the podcast to share his mission—to elevate the level of gratitude on the planet by inspiring 74 million Thank You cards. He kicked it off by writing five (5) Thank You cards every day for an entire year, which even got him featured on ABC News!

I’m a believer in the “ripple effect”... the idea that one lesson or moment in life can spark something that will change you and the world in bigger ways than you can imagine.
And recently, I sat down with Rob Dial (one of my first coaching clients) to share the lessons that have had this effect on my own life and personal development.
We talk about the lessons that have helped me stay positive in the middle of life’s biggest challenges (including my most recent battle with cancer) and how to apply them to yours.
