We’ve talked A LOT about inner freedom over the past couple of years, and specifically how you can gain the freedom to choose how you feel and how you experience every moment of your life—regardless of your circumstances.

Choosing to maintain a state of authentic GRATITUDE can be one of the most beneficial states of consciousness we can choose—especially when we’re enduring difficult times—and yet that’s also when maintaining that state is most challenging. Enter today’s guest.

Few people know this better than Louie Schwartzberg. Louie grew up with parents who were Holocaust survivors, and he learned the power of gratitude from a young age.

Louie is an award-winning cinematographer, director, producer, and visual artist who tells stories that celebrate life. He's also produced three TED talks that have over 60 million combined views. His newest film, Gratitude Revealed, is a beautiful homage to gratitude and how it improves our lives – both as individuals and as a community.

In today’s conversation, we discuss why it's crucial to be grateful when times are tough and how to do it, why suffering leads to growth, and Louie’s strategies for practicing gratitude in every moment.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How Louie learned gratitude from his Holocaust survivor parents and how that inspired him to tell stories about adversity and gratitude through photography and filmmaking.
  • The importance of being grateful not just when things are great but also when things feel terrible.
  • Stop taking everything for granted. You can be grateful even for the small, mundane things that happen to you daily.
  • Gratitude is a muscle, and it will get stronger with practice.
  • Why being kind is always better than being right.
  • How to sprinkle gratefulness throughout your daily existence to break the pattern of negative thinking and rumination.

If you had a chance to learn how to set major goals from the man who sent clients to the wreck of the Titanic, arranged for people to get married by the Pope in the Vatican, and set up a private dinner at the feet of Michelangelo’s David (statue) while being serenaded by Andrea Bocelli, would you seize it?

You are about to get that opportunity! My guest today, Steve Sims, has done things that seem like they’ve been ripped out of a Hollywood movie script. Forbes and Entrepreneur magazine have even called him “The Real Wizard of Oz.” 

Steve is an example that you don’t need to be afraid to dream big and that nothing is impossible. Fear of failure is a self-fulfilling prophecy, and you need to eradicate those thoughts from your mind to achieve your most cherished goals.

In today’s conversation, we discussed the importance of thinking big, taking massive action and why you should embrace failure to get to success.

We also discuss Steve’s latest book Go For Stupid: The Art of Achieving Ridiculous Goals and his strategy for developing an unbeatable mindset that will make it possible to turn your dreams into a reality.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • The strategy that helped Steve go from being a nightclub doorman to doing business with Elon Musk, Sir Elton John, Sir Richard Branson, and many more.
  • Why most people are scared to chase their deepest passions and Steve’s method for overcoming that problem.
  • How to forget the word “impossible” and go after ridiculous, stupid goals!
  • If you act boldly, chances are you’ll fail. But you have to get comfortable with failure to reach success.
  • How Steve helps prison inmates turn illegal hustles into productive businesses.

In today’s fast-paced world, I think it’s safe to say that most of us feel like there's not enough time in the day to get everything done that we need to get done—let alone find time for the things we want to be doing.

What if I told you that, with just a few tweaks to your current schedule, you could be more productive and experience greater fulfillment than ever before?

Today’s guest has helped millions realize that taking control of your time is not only doable, it’s simple. Laura Vanderkam is one of the world’s leading experts on time management and the author of seven (7) time management and productivity books, including her newest book, Tranquility by Tuesday: 9 Ways to Calm the Chaos and Make Time for What Matters. Her incredible TED talk on time management has over 20 million views and her work has appeared in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, and Fortune.

Today, we’ll dig into the most common reasons why people struggle with time management and the nine (9) strategies that will help you take control of your time and build the life you want.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Why life hacks that “save you time” are a lost cause, and why filling up your schedule with things that light up your soul is a better alternative.
  • The number one reason most people struggle with time management.
  • Laura’s nine (9) habits for mastering time management.

Are you a fan of stand-up comedy? What I love about today’s guest is that he uses his comedy to bring people together, rather than divide them.

You’ll also hear the inspiring story of how he persisted to make his dream of being a stand-up comedian come true, which shows us all how we can do the same to achieve our dreams.

Brent Pella is a successful stand-up comedian and a cast member on Nick Cannon’s VH1 show Wild N’ Out. Brent’s comedy sketches, parody videos, and celebrity impressions have more than 200 million views online.

In this episode, we discuss how he made a name for himself by never giving up on his dreams, the mindset that will make you better at any craft, and the relationship between comedy and spirituality.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • The advice that Andy Samberg gave Brent that made him a better comedian.
  • How being persistent in his goals got Brent from working in Cheesecake Factory to being a part of Hollywood music video sets and VH1 shows.
  • The creative process that allows Brent to consistently produce content loved by millions worldwide.
  • How an Eminem parody video led to a call from Nick Cannon and a role on his Wild N’ Out show.
  • Why anyone (not just comedians) should be OK with sucking at their craft in the beginning.
