Let’s talk about coloring books. Yes, coloring books!

Coloring books are not only for kids, it’s also ideal for adult too. The science behind them is incredible. People are using them for mindfulness and visualization.

Today’s guest is a friend of mine, Brianna Greenspan. Briana has to overcome the physical challenges of being born with a chronic invisible illness. She has been using the power of positive affirmation for the past 10 years. From back and neck braces, surgeries and numerous doctor visits to competing her first 10k, hiking Half Dome Yosemite National Park, Brianna is a living proof that the power of positive affirmation can really overcome anything that’s holding you back!

Brianna brought about the idea to incorporate the powerful affirmations from The Miracle Morning Book into a coloring book!

Each page is an affirmation that someone can color; the act of coloring helps your mind program the affirmation subconsciously. The coloring book has an adult section and a kids section so families can do this together!

In this episode, you will…

  • Get to know Brianna and hear her incredible story
  • Realize that obstacles should not hinder you in achieving your goals
  • Discover the power of affirmation through The Art of Affirmation Coloring Book
  • Find out about the benefits of coloring books
  • Learn how coloring books are popular in the corporate world

You can now get a copy of the first ever Miracle Morning coloring book, The Art of Affirmations: A Positive Coloring Book for Adults & Kids

Do you find it hard to sit still and relax? Do you feel lazy and guilty if you aren’t constantly working through a to-do list? Perhaps your issues are just the opposite. Maybe inaction is your problem. Do you love options but can’t decide? Do you find it hard to stand up for yourself? Do you constantly doubt your decisions?

Stereotypically, the first camp is associated with masculinity, whereas the second camp is more often associated with femininity. The traditional views of what makes up the two are very black and white.

Men are assumed to be masculine and women are assumed to be feminine, but are these stereotypes actually true?

You’re not going to want to miss this interview with Mimi Ikonn. She finally wrote the book her 2.8 MILLION YouTube channel subscribers have been begging her to write, and they’ve been begging because they want to know the answers to all the questions you’re asking yourself as well right now.

Mimi shares how both men and women can tap into the next level of their potential by harnessing The Bingo Theory…and, whaddya know? That’s also the title of her book!

  • Learn how to connect with your feminine energy, even if masculinity predominates
  • Hear tips for balancing your conflicting energies
  • Understand why the starting point for balanced relationships is having a relationship with yourself
  • Uncover how you can tap into your energy potential using The Bingo Theory

If you (or someone you know) are ready to be happier, this episode may be finding it's way to you at just the right time.

It also happens to be the first episode ​where ​I've ​ever​ actually​ read a letter to you, word-for-word. Please allow me to explain...

As I was ​preparing ​for ​my next live coaching session on "HOLISTIC HAPPINESS" for the Best Year Ever Coaching program, I came across an article I wrote in 2008 for B​liss​ Magazine, "How to Choose Happiness.​"

T​he article (and this podcast episode) is​ based ​on a letter I received from Katie, a woman who was feeling hopeless, telling me about her depression and why she ​simply ​can't be happy.​

In today's podcast episode, y​ou'll​ ​he​ar​​​ me read Katie's letter, followed by ​my response, and then her final​, unexpected, and ​truly inspiring ​conclusion, about how applying the advice ​in my letter completely shifted her perspective, opened her eyes to new possibilities​,​ and enabled her to immediately begin to transcend her depression. 

I​ sincerely​ hope this ​episode ​​makes a profound impact for you, or someone you know​, the way that it did for Katie​.

How about a little quiz? Don’t worry, it’s only one question—Do you control your ego, or does your ego control you?

Many of us have been taught to regard the idea of ego with suspicion and judgment. We hear that ego is synonymous with selfishness and try to do whatever we can to get away from it. The truth is, the ego is an integral part of your being, and an important ingredient to designing a healthy, balanced life. The trick is just to be in control of it, rather than letting it guide your life.

If at the core of your actions is a desire to help others and add value to their lives regardless of your own benefit, but you understand the need to also make a living, you probably have a pretty healthy ego. On the other hand, if at the core of your actions is a desire to get noticed, to receive accolades, and to be remembered, then your ego is probably getting a little ahead of you. No need to worry, though – there is hope for us all!

In this episode, you will…

  • Learn how to transform purpose into profit
  • Understand how to go from ego-driven to purpose-driven for a happier, more successful life!
  • Discover the distinction between mission and purpose and why you need them both
  • Determine whether or not your mission and purpose are aligned for success
  • Hear how to re-engineer your ego to have a more meaningful life

I had to go on an ego-balancing journey myself, and I’m here to tell you that after reducing ego, I began to experience more happiness, fulfillment, and success than ever before, because my goals were more than just “me”-centered pursuits. If I can make the change, so can you!

Tune in!

Friends, today’s episode is a conversation with one of my best friends, John Ruhlin, and I’m grateful to be able to share his story, and his strategies for “Radical Generosity” with you.

This guy has taught me so much about appreciating others, personally and professionally, and his new book Giftology (and our podcast interview) give you the shortcut to gaining the wisdom that has taken him 20+ years to acquire.

Publications like Forbes and INC Magazine have deemed him the world’s leading expert in a topic that we can all learn more about – “Appreciation.”

You may not have even known that there was a study of gift-giving – What’s there to study anyway, right?

Giving gifts has become so automated in our culture that we have to remind ourselves to actually put thought into them, and even when we do, the thoughts often end up being more about ourselves than the recipient – we’re good people, so what gives?? Like everything else in our lives, learning to give personalized, thoughtful gifts, is a practice, and you won’t want to miss John’s masterful insights about it.

In this episode, you will…

  • Realize why giving things away is the best way to ‘get’ what you seek!
  • Understand how to make gifts about the recipient, rather than yourself
  • Learn about radical generosity and how to incorporate it into your life and business!
  • Hear how gift giving allows you to become a fixture in the recipient’s mind
  • Discover the amazing difference it makes in your life to show gratitude, often

Tune in to learn how thoughtful giving can begin transforming your life, and the lives of the people you begin giving to.

It is generally agreed upon that entrepreneurship is the engine that drives an economy upwards and is primarily responsible for its growth.

However, one need not start one’s own business in order to be an entrepreneur. You can be entrepreneurial within a company setting (often called “intrapreneurs”) and you can lead from anywhere you happen to be positioned.

Our guest today is Bob Burg, the bestselling author of one of my favorite books, The Go-Giver: A Little Story About a Powerful Business Idea. He is an advocate for, as well as supporter and defender of, the Free Enterprise system. He believes that the amount of money one makes is directly proportional to how many people one serves.

Bob is committed to inspiring the entrepreneurial spirit in all of us.

In today’s podcast, you’ll discover:

  • Why you needn’t be an entrepreneur… to be entrepreneurial.
  • Five Laws that will bring you both personal effectiveness and professional success.
  • Why asking if something will make money isn’t a bad question…it’s just a bad “first question.”
  • One thing to absolutely AVOID doing when seeking out a mentor.
  • Why being a “Go-Giver” is absolutely congruent with human nature.

Tune in and go give ‘em!

The moment you’ve been waiting for is here! Peter Diamandis and Tony Robbins together on the same stage, sharing their insights on life, happiness, and success. You won’t want to miss this interview, so tune in!

In this episode, you will…

  • Get the morning routines that set Tony and Peter up for success
  • Hear Peter share what’s possible when you go 10x’s instead of 10% bigger!
  • Understand that, although the brain is wired for survival, you can train it to seek happiness
  • Discover how to alter your perception of tribulation and use your experience to help others
  • Realize that, if you don’t make time for yourself, you don’t have a life

As humans, we’re programmed to expect suffering, and we learn to seek out stress, but it’s possible for you to develop habits and make lifestyle choices that help to rewire those instincts. No matter how much money you make or how much success you have, there’s no immunity from pain. It’s what you do with the pain and how you use it to help others that sets you apart. As Tony said, “You become something unique when you find a way to grow and you find a way to give.”
