Fear, doubt, hesitation, anxiety, concern, frustration, self-limiting beliefs.... Whatever you want to call it, we’ve all been there.

So, how can you proactively overcome all of it?

In this discussion, Jon Berghoff shares from the heart and opens up about his experience with FEAR—yup, even an uber successful guy like Jon struggles with such self-imposed limitations.  

In fact, it’s something he’s had to deal with for his whole life. As he puts it, “I live with fear. It’s not something that ever goes away.

Maybe he can’t eliminate it—I don’t think anyone can—but he does consciously decide how to work with it. Today he’s going to share the 4 scientifically proven ways to breakthrough your fears.

What kind of future would give YOU the greatest sense of pride, meaning and fulfillment?

We know that when we connect with our strengths, we perform at a much higher level. Yet, far too often, we look at what’s wrong, what’s broken and what’s missing as a way to solve our problems and find fulfillment in our lives.

What if instead, we looked at where we’ve been at our best—and then determined the factors that led to that success by asking better questions. Questions that would not only help us find deeper meaning in our own lives, but would create a shared sense of purpose in the lives of others.

That’s what you’re going to learn about today. In fact, we’re doing something a little different. We’re going to be replaying a recent conversation between Jon Berghoff and host of The Millionaire Mindcast podcast, Matty Aitchison. When I heard this discussion, I knew I had to share it with our community, as it’s loaded with insight!

Jon also reminds us that as a leader, you not only need to build the habit and practice of asking great questions, but you also have to build the habit of allowing yourself to not get attached to your first answer. Don’t be afraid to let your answers evolve!

Today’s conversation is with a man who runs six companies and is responsible for producing thousands of live events for corporate and social clients, worldwide—including the Best Year Ever Blueprint LIVE experience, which combines cutting edge experiential learning, live music, and an unparalleled level of engagement that produces immediate and lasting transformations for every person in attendance.

As Carey Smolenksky shares his entrepreneurial journey with you, you’ll learn why passion and helping others makes a world of difference in your success.

Of course, Carey didn’t build a business empire overnight. In fact, there tends to be an overwhelming amount of challenges that can arise in his line of work.

As he puts it, “A problem has a negative connotation. A challenge allows itself to present solutions.” He will teach you how to see your problems from a completely different angle—and show you how to overcome the uncontrollable circumstances that we all have to face in life.

In this discussion, he will also share the big lessons from his book Living Life with PASSION and Helping Others, including how to shift your mindset so you can find deeper meaning and purpose in both your personal and professional life.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Lessons on building lifetime relationships—both personally and professionally.
  • The power of contribution and why it always comes back full circle!
  • Carey shares lessons from his book Living Life with PASSION and Helping Others.

Nobody succeeds alone. That’s the simple, yet very important takeaway from today’s conversation.

When I was young, I didn’t believe I needed anybody’s help. I wanted to prove to the world that my success was mine—that I had made it completely on my own. Well, as you can probably imagine, that didn’t work out so well!

Luckily, I started to recognize the power of relationships and how building a support system of likeminded and like-hearted individuals would not only catapult the success of my business endeavors, but would also bring a completely different level of joy and fulfillment into my life.   

20 years later, I’m fortunate to be surrounded by an incredibly talented group of friends. Together we have empowered each other to succeed well beyond what we ever dreamed possible.

In today’s roundtable discussion, 5 best friends—myself, Jon Berghoff (co-creator of the Best Year Ever Blueprint LIVE Experience), Jon Vroman (founder of Front Row Foundation), John Ruhlin (author of Giftology), and John Kane (record-setting endurance athlete)—revisit the biggest lessons from two decades of supporting each other.  

You’ll see that we have a lot of fun reliving past stories, sharing meaningful moments, and discussing the values and philosophies that have shaped our lives.

You’ll also hear why the Front Row Foundation (think make-a-wish meets Tony Robbins) is the glue that keeps us all connected and how the values behind the organization are fully aligned with the way we are living and succeeding together!  

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Leveraging the power of HUMOR in the midst of adversity—What Hal’s battle with cancer can teach us about making the most out of difficult situations.
  • Why nobody succeeds on their own—You’ll hear how a willingness to serve and support one another allowed 5 friends to succeed beyond their wildest dreams.
  • The not-so-obvious benefits that are hidden in your relationships—5 best friends express their gratitude and describe how the culture of one company brought them together.
  • Find out what the Front Row Foundation means to each of us and how an organization that started off as a way to help people fight life threatening illnesses, has grown into a way of living!
  • Jon Berghoff also shares an incredibly touching story of Front Row recipient, Sophie, and the moment she got to meet Kelly Clarkson—this story will really help you appreciate how precious YOUR life truly is!
  • Big lessons from Jon Vroman’s book—The Front Row Factor: Transform Your Life with the Art of Moment Making—including how to become a moment maker for the people you love and care about the most.
  • Why a partnership was born between the Best Year Ever [Blueprint] and the Front Row Foundation and why it’s giving BYEB attendees a higher sense of purpose.
  • And much more…

Have you ever stopped and asked yourself why people (i.e. you and me) tend to work hard to accumulate stuff that we don’t really need?

Today’s conversation with Drew Canole will open your eyes to another way of thinking, being, and living. At one point, Drew was chasing everything for all the wrong reasons. The money, the stylish car, the big house and the fancy clothes — all of his goals were being driven by external factors. His fleeting approach to life lacked purpose and left him completely unfulfilled, unhappy, and 40lbs overweight.

Today, Drew Canole is a rockstar in the world of fitness, nutrition, and mindset. As the Founder and CEO of Fitlife.TV, a bestselling author and the creator of Organifi, he is helping millions of people around the world to transform their lives.

So, how exactly did Drew make such an incredible shift to the way he was living? How did he ditch the self-absorbed lifestyle and start uniting the world through health and happiness? You’re going to find out in this incredible conversation how he did it and how you can too!

By the way, although Drew is a leading influencer in the world of fitness, this discussion is not just about taking care of your physical health. In fact, Jon and Drew actually talk a lot more about strategies for managing your inner mental game, so you can further succeed in business and life. You'll recognize quickly that Drew wears his heart on his sleeve and the passion he has for helping others is sure to leave a lasting impression.

Drew brings so much value on the topics of mindset, finding purpose, and achieving your goals that we decided to cut this one into 2 parts so you can absorb it all without missing a thing!

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What growing up in Lake City, Michigan taught Drew about the person he wanted to become—What do you value and how are those values guiding your own life?
  • How Drew quit his finance job to start a world-class health and wellness brand that’s now inspiring 4.7 million people around the world.
  • How to use the power of “what if” to shift your mindset and transform the way you’re living your life.

  • The revitalization routine that will unlock your level 10 performance!

Last week, I released Part 1 of a musical conversation between Brotha James (aka my good friend, Jeremy Reisig) and Jon Berghoff. They shared some fascinating never-before-told stories and jammed out to a few of my favorite songs, including “Grateful” and “The Front Row Anthem.”

Today we release Part 2, and you’ll hear the debut of the brand new Miracle Morning song!

The power of music is undeniable, but Brotha James, takes it to a whole new level by combining music with positive affirmations.

His mission is to spread love and joy through music, messages, and inspirational living, and that’s why I invite Brotha James to perform at all of our live events.

Of all of the Brotha James songs, I think #3 may be my favorite. But then again, I may be a little biased ;^)

KEY TAKEAWAYS

During Part 2 of this musical conversation, you’ll get to experience 3 more inspiring Brotha James songs:

  • Song/Message #1: “Slow Down”—Far too often, we feel the need to move faster, especially when we look at what others are doing. This song is all about slowing things down and appreciating the little things in life that keep us grounded.
  • Song/Message #2: “Abracadabra”—A lot of us associate the word ‘abracadabra’ with magic. This song is about the magic you can create in your own life. It’s about deciding that you can do anything you want to do, if you’re willing to go for it.
  • Song/Message #3: “Miracle Morning”—Brotha James once asked me “Hal, what is a miracle morning?” My response was simple… “It’s any time you wake up before you have to and do something that empowers you to become the best version of yourself.” That’s what this song is all about.

What if you could listen to music every day that not only sounded great, but the lyrics actually programmed your subconscious mind so that you automatically felt happier, more grateful, and even more motivated?  

You’re about to meet the man Brotha James (Real Name: Jeremy Reisig), who has dedicated his life to creating “Music with a Message.”

He is a musician, speaker and entrepreneur, who is on a mission to spread love and joy through music, messages, and inspirational living. His positive energy is contagious and his enthusiasm for creating, playing and performing helps him engage audiences of all ages.

In this 2-part rhythmic conversation, join two of my greatest friends, Jon Berghoff and Brotha James as they jam out to 6 different songs, each with a meaningful message that will help you to become the best version of yourself and start living life to the fullest.

What I absolutely love about Brotha James is that every single lyric he writes, is written with purpose and his message to all audiences is the same: be a dreamer, be animalistic in pursuit of those dreams, be good to yourself and others, and be grateful.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

During Part 1 of this conversation, you’ll get to experience 2 of my favorite Brotha James songs:

  • Song/Message #1: “Gratitude”—Instead of focusing on the negative, learn how to reprogram your mind to see gratitude all around you and use it to propel your life forward.
  • Song/Message #2: “Living In the Front Row”—What can you learn from your Front Row experiences? Reflect on your front row moments, write them down and see how that feeling transforms your life.

Plus, you'll also get to hear:

  • The story of how Jon Berghoff and Brotha James met.
  • How to change lives with the power of positivity and random acts of kindness.
  • And so much more…

Do you regularly spend time with people who are challenging you to set bigger goals, and helping you to achieve your goals?

Our ability to achieve our goals can be greatly influenced by the people we spend the most time with. Not only can they push us to succeed, but they can also help us define what that success looks like.

If you’re like most, financial freedom is an important goal. But what else do you value? What about contribution, health, family, accountability, or even bucket-list adventures?

In today’s conversation, Jon Berghoff talks with Mike McCarthy in his home in Colorado to discuss what it takes to live your truth and grab life big.

Mike is a serial entrepreneur and co-founder and CEO of GoBundance, an Adventure Masterminding group of hard charging entrepreneurs who want to lead epic lives!

He also happens to be the co-author of The Miracle Morning for Parents and Families, co-creator of GratefulParent.com, and is the Regional Owner for the Keller Williams Realty Greater Pennsylvania Region, which covers Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Southern New Jersey.  

What I love most about this episode, is how Mike includes his family in achieving his goals. He doesn’t let the fact that he’s got kids—or anything else in his life—hold him back from grabbing life big, and neither should you!

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • A new mindset about “Grabbing Life Big!” that will help you to achieve your goals.
  • The GoBundance tribe’s 6 pillars of strength and what they can teach you about prioritizing what matters most.
  • Why you don’t have to give up on your goals and dreams, just because you have children.
  • Adapting the Miracle Morning routine for you and your children.
  • How a Spirit Coach helped Mike tap into his most authentic self, uncover his biggest strengths, and access a deeper wisdom he never knew he had.
  • A really fun exercise to overcome the FEAR of being rejected.
  • And much more…

When we accept life before it happens, we get to keep the power that adversity will try to take away from us. We get to control the narrative. Instead of focusing on “why me?”, we can instead choose how we give meaning to something. In other words, adversity doesn’t hurt you, it serves you!

Which is what you learned in Part 1 of “Beating Cancer: A Dialogue On Converting Adversity into Advantage”. If you haven’t heard it, I encourage you to go back and check it out!

In Part 2, we continue the conversation and dive deep into what matters the most. I break down the most profound lessons learned since being diagnosed with cancer, including the 3 factors (Perspective, Love & Gratitude, and Freedom) that have completely transformed the way I now see the world.

This conversation actually may surprise a lot of listeners. You’ll hear that before being diagnosed with cancer, I never truly believed I was deserving of my success. Today I not only explain why, but I share the affirmation that’s shifting my mindset!

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Learn how perspective can determine your attitude, and therefore the quality of your life.  
  • How to turn emotional pain and negativity into love and gratitude that serves you unconditionally.
  • Transform your relationships and your business, through the act of selflessly giving.
  • The single most important way to achieve ultimate freedom in your life. HINT: It doesn’t matter how much money you have, this is something you can take action on today!  
  • Find out why you should attend The Best Year Ever Blueprint.

As many of you  know, shortly after I was diagnosed with cancer in November, my good friend and co-creator of the Best Year Ever Blueprint, Jon Berghoff, stepped up and has been leading the Achieve Your Goals podcast ever since so I can focus on healing. (THANK YOU!!)

Although cancer wasn’t my conscious choice, I do believe that I am 100% responsible for choosing how I respond to it. By choosing to accept what I can’t change, be grateful for all that I have, and finding/creating meaning & purpose from what might otherwise be a negative experience, I’m finding once again that every adversity holds within it a profound, life-transforming advantage.

This mindset applies to all of us. We all face adversity, and it is up to us to decide what meaning we give to it, and what purpose it serves for ourselves, our loved ones, and the greater good.

That’s what this 2 part dialogue between Jon and myself is going to cover. It’s not about what’s going wrong, but rather, actively asking ourselves what we can learn from these experiences and how we can use them to our advantage.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • The “Can’t Change It” mantra that will help you turn any adversity into purpose that serves the world.
  • Learn the powerful daily affirmation that gives Hal direction when the meaning isn’t clear.
  • How to win in business & life by throwing out the “master plan” and focusing on adding value.
  • Why overnight success is a myth! Jon and Hal recount the failed businesses that led to their “overnight success.”
  • Hear about Hal’s risky heart procedure, holistic Cancer treatments vs. Chemotherapy, and how he’s detoxifying his body with… wait for it… coffee enema’s!
  • Hal reveals his most profound realization since being diagnosed with Cancer and how it’s helping him win the fight!

As humans, we naturally gravitate towards this idea of finding our purpose, yet most of us struggle to answer the question ''Why do I do what I do?''

The good news, is that we have the freedom to answer that question however we want. In other words, purpose is a choice and nobody can stop you from defining it.

Today, we’re releasing Jon Berghoff’s discussion with Performance Coach, Andy Storch on The Entrepreneur Hot Seat podcast. After listening, you’ll walk away with a better sense for what purpose really means to you and how it can be used to fuel your success and exponentially transform the world around you.

This is a super insightful conversation that hits on a number of topics. From effective leadership, to the power of strength based questions, and understanding what makes any human system (group, team, community) come alive and perform better than ever before.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Find out what Jon’s most influential mentors taught him about sales, leadership, negotiating, decision making, and building world-class organizations.
  • Learn what it takes to become a great leader!
  • Why it’s critical for entrepreneurs to pay attention to the macro economic changes that are impacting the world.
  • Why do you do what you do? Jon dives deep and helps you better understand what it really means to find your purpose.

I never used to think I was a “salesperson” until I realized we are all born with the ability to sell, and selling is a skill that benefits all of us. Think about it...

As children, we were always trying to sell our parents on letting us eat candy, stay up late, have our friends sleep over, you name it. Now we’re always selling others on our ideas, and most importantly, on ourselves.

Today’s guest, Karen Briscoe, is an expert when it comes to selling. Karen and her team have been recognized by the Wall Street Journal as one of the 250 Top Realtor® teams in the United States, and they have sold more than 1,000 homes valued at over $1 billion.

In today’s conversation, Karen shares her story and breaks down the framework that led to creating an exceptionally successful business, based on—you got it—selling.
