If you’re someone who meditates, your practice probably entails taking 10-20 minutes out of your busy day to sit in silence.

Does that time give you a sense of peace, calm, and clarity? Most likely—for those 20 minutes.

But what happens when you end your meditation? Do you continue to go through your day with those same levels of peace, calm, and clarity? Or do you become reactive to the outside forces and succumb to your inner turmoil?

Meditation will get you nowhere. Meditativeness will give you the keys to your inner kingdom. The unserious man puts in his obligatory 20 minutes of meditation, in order to fulfill his daily quota, but the one who is truly serious transforms every single thing that he does into a meditation. In short, he becomes meditative.” —Kapil Gupta

In today’s episode, I’m excited to start by reading a short chapter from the book, Atmamun: The Path to Achieving the Bliss of the Himalayan Swamis and the Freedom of a Living God, written by Kapil Gupta, MD, and then sharing how I implement it, including asking a simple but powerful question that you can begin using immediately.

You’ll learn how to reframe your world, approach every moment of your life in a meditative state—and discover how it feels to live in a heightened state of being and awareness.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Why meditating to fulfill a daily quota doesn’t permanently eliminate stressors.
  • What meditation is really about and why it doesn’t work for the overwhelming majority of people who practice it.
  • How emotional optimization meditation works and why it’s one of my favorite forms of meditation.
  • The question my former coach asked me that unlocked the door to inner freedom.
  • How approaching everything from a meditative state brings joy to everything you do.

From time to time, we all tend to settle for less than we truly want and are capable of, at least in some areas of our life. Today we’re going to explore how to identify which areas you’re settling in, what’s causing you to settle, and then commit to taking simple actions that will move you forward and set a course for a Level 10 life. About six months ago, as I was journaling, I realized that I was settling for mediocrity in some of the most important areas of my life. I assessed my health, my finances, my marriage, my role as a parent, and my happiness. I felt like I was just going through the motions and stuck in a rut. So, I asked myself, “Where am I?” “Why am I settling for less?” and “What can I do to immediately move me from mediocrity to mastery in the most important areas of my life?”

Today, I’m sharing a very vulnerable entry from my own journal, revealing my self-coaching process, and inviting you to improve your own life. Be prepared not just to listen and take notes, but to take action.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Why calling yourself or someone else mediocre isn’t judgmental.
  • How and why I rated myself at different levels across my life in my assessment.
  • Questions you can ask yourself and tools you can use to assess where you’re excelling and where you may be mediocre.
  • How I took my performance from mediocre to masterful in my past.
  • The powerful affirmation you can use to chart a course to mastery right now.

What if you could be completely in control of what you think, how you feel, and what you do? I mean, wouldn’t that kind of be the ultimate superpower!?

Consider that you do have that power. When you change your perspective, it changes the way you think, the way you feel, and the actions you take, which enables you to change your life. Thus, the key to changing your life begins with changing your perspective.

If you spend your time focused on your perceived inadequacies or things that upset you, it affects how you feel, how you treat yourself, and how you show up every day. This is especially true when you are facing stressful times.

On the other hand, when you consciously optimize your perspective, you optimize your life, and you give yourself the power to show up optimally for yourself, for the people you love, and for humanity.

Today’s episode is all about how to choose the perspectives that will empower you to be at your best, even when faced with hard times, misfortune, and challenges. You’ll learn how to stop negative emotions from controlling how your brain and body feel, the value of focusing on positivity even as you endure difficulty, and how to see the gift and the beauty inherent to every struggle.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Why perspective makes all the difference when we’re facing adversity.
  • Why negative emotions are valuable—and how to feel them in a useful, productive way.
  • How to choose a perspective that empowers you no matter what.
  • What I do when I find myself stressed out or frustrated about something beyond my control.
  • Why you have a 100% success rate of surviving everything you will ever face.

Last week, my good friend Mike Dillard sent out an email where he analyzed the tumultuous events happening across the world right now. As war broke out between Russia and Ukraine, he wrote powerfully about how we got here, the breakdown of our supply chains, and he shared 10 Ways We Can Prepare for What’s Coming.

Today, I’m reading Mike’s email, from top to bottom, and sharing my commentary along the way. While some of these topics are controversial, possibly scary, and very concerning, my goal is to uplift you and make you feel more empowered by giving you steps you can take now to be prepared for whatever may come our way.

Mike’s writing can feel intense at times and may seem like a departure from the usual tone of this podcast, but it comes from a place of love, care, and concern. I consider all of us to be family, and like any family, I believe we should look out for each other. Even if everything in this episode doesn’t resonate with you, my hope is that you find at least a few significant take-aways that add value to your life.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Why shortages in farming supplies, paper, plastic, and virtually everything else are all but guaranteed to impact our lives.
  • What you can do to ensure you’ll have access to food, clean water, and backup power–and be able to protect yourself–in the event of a full-on attack on our resources and infrastructure.
  • Why there’s no reason to stop living and enjoying your life right now.
  • Why now’s a great time to create as many sources of passive income as possible.

Do you ever struggle with your significant other, or with any of the other important relationships in your life (family, friends, co-workers, etc.)?

Today’s episode is designed to empower you from the perspective that it only takes ONE person to transform a relationship,  a concept that I first learned from Stacey & Paul Martino, co-authors of The Miracle Morning for Transforming Your Relationship.

In other words, the key to having a successful relationship has much less to do with the other person, and almost everything to do with how you choose to perceive and treat them. Your perception informs your behavior, and both create your reality.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How to transform any relationship by altering your perception.
  • The affirmations I read every day to optimize my marriage and how I feel about my wife.
  • My most up-to-date process for creating effective affirmations.
  • How to turn relationship struggles into an opportunity to grow and evolve as a person.
  • Tools you can use to reprogram your nervous system and subconscious mind to improve your relationships and show up for the people you care about, even in tough times.
