Today’s episode is a very real, raw, and authentic conversation with someone who’s become a total inspiration to me, Eric Hansen. Despite living through unimaginable circumstances, he has figured out how to embody what I’ve been talking about for the past year… Inner Freedom

Eric is a recovering drug addict who began using at the age of 12, raised by his mother who was also an addict. He has been homeless multiple times, and he’s been in and out of jail and prison. While he was in prison, he discovered this podcast, and it transformed his outlook on life. 

Currently out for four months, employed, and living in a halfway house, Eric is still navigating difficult health struggles and various painful consequences of his previous actions. However, his internal quality of life and his ability to experience the inner freedom that we all seek, are truly exceptional. He’s building a following in the Miracle Morning Community Facebook group, where he has posted every single day, for 96 consecutive days. 

I’ve been so inspired by him that I knew I needed to talk to him on the very same podcast that changed his life. 

In this extraordinary conversation, Eric tells the story of how he fell from success to homelessness, how to recover from hitting rock-bottom, and how to truly take responsibility for–and choose how we experience–our lives.

Key Takeaways

  • How Eric discovered the Achieve Your Goals podcast while in prison, and the immediate impact it had on him.
  • What the Miracle Morning has done for Eric that nothing else did.
  • How Eric’s career in sales thrived as he fell further and further into cocaine addiction and his family fell apart.
  • How Eric stays accountable to himself, even in the toughest times.
  • How Eric was able to further his education during his most recent stint in jail–and why episode #338 of this show, “Freedom from Your Emotional Pain,” impacted him like nothing else.

“How’s life?” can often be a loaded question, especially with the state of the world right now. If you ask most people, they’ll run through an inventory of their circumstances. You might hear them talk about what’s going well, but, more often than not, you’ll hear about their problems, financial challenges, difficulties at work, struggles in their marriage, or other less-than-stellar circumstances. 

And when we’re not talking about our problems/circumstances, we’re thinking about them. We tend to listen to the voice in our head, stressing about the present and worrying about the future, and unconsciously allowing our emotional well-being to suffer. 

But what if there is more to life than our circumstances? What if life is actually the experience we’re having in the present moment? And what if you could learn how to transcend the voice in your head and live the majority of your life in the present moment? 

In today’s episode, I want to teach you two techniques you can use to stop the voice in your head from taking over and give you the power to truly live in the present moment. Even if you’re already familiar with them, I want you to look at them in a new way, combine them, and discover how they can help you be here now–and live free from fear, stress, and anxiety.

Key Takeaways

  • How to assess how often you’re fully present.
  •  Where stress, fear, overwhelm, and regret come from.
  •  Why our brains are prone to amplifying and focusing on problems when we try to solve them.
  • How to not let the voice in your head create your reality.
  •  How a mantra can help you bring your life into alignment on your terms. 
  • My 7-day challenge that will enable you to begin quickly living in the present moment.

When you’re experiencing stress, fear, anxiety, overwhelm, depression, or any other challenging emotional state, how can you regain control of the way you feel?  

Today was supposed to be another “Ask Me Anything” episode, where I answer listener questions. However, as I began to address the first question: What do you believe about Jesus, God, and the Bible, I found myself thinking about the difficult situations and resulting emotions that many people are facing right now. 

If you’ve experienced emotional distress, are concerned with the future, or are afraid of the unknown, today’s episode will provide you with some practical advice you can use to rise above your challenges and take control of your emotional state.

Key Takeaways

  • Why I don’t identify with any political party or religious sect—and how to find your own truth.
  • How we create layers of protection, to protect our psyche, over the course of our lives.
  • Why it’s so important to get back in touch with who you really are.
  • How inner freedom gives you the power to choose how to experience life in any given moment.
  • What to do when your emotional state isn’t serving you—and how to double down on taking control of your emotions during challenging times.

Today’s episode of the podcast is going to cover three somewhat random and unrelated (yet very important) topics. I’m talking about:

  • Four profound lessons learned from the BEST vacation of my life – and how you can immediately apply them to enhance your daily life.
  • Major disruptions in our food supply chain and how to prepare for the very realistic possibility of coming food shortages.
  • Why the book I’m reading right now is SO good that it may have led me to stop writing my newest book.

Why these topics? In short, they all tie back to health, safety, freedom, and happiness. 

Key Takeaways

  • Four guiding principles to enhance your everyday life.
  • What to consider when it comes to adding value to your loved one's life in really simple but meaningful ways.
  • How to “eat for energy” and why I’m so intentional about the foods I consume (and exactly what I eat from when I wake up until I go to bed).
  • Why you have the power to choose your perspective and interpret life however you choose.
  • How I’ve been preparing for potential food emergencies without becoming a paranoid prepper.
  • Why The Inner Work has had such a huge impact on me—and how to make sense of when other people appear to have received the same message from the universe that you have.

Do you consider yourself to be an optimist, a pessimist, or a realist? Optimism, pessimism, and realism are three different paradigms that impact how we approach life and interpret life’s events. For some, they’re even identities.

When we face difficult times, our dominant paradigm tends to become amplified, which can be the determining factor in whether we suffer or thrive.

I’ve experienced this in a unique way. For many years of my life, I was what I would call a delusional optimist. While this helped me through some difficult times, it also stopped me from healthily processing negative emotions and events, and I had to learn quite a few tough lessons the hard way.

In this episode, I want to dive deep into the differences between optimism, pessimism, and realism–and help you identify how these paradigms can be most useful and effective as you optimize and make the most of the life you live.

Key Takeaways

  • What it really means to be an optimist, a pessimist, or a realist.
  • Why so many self-identified realists are focused on the negative–and why it’s just as realistic to be excited about the possibilities and positives in life.
  • The dangers of blind or delusional optimism–and how it can make it extremely difficult to process or make sense of negative emotions.
  • An exercise you can do to truly understand what’s going on in your life and reframe your reality.
  • The genius of being able to hold two opposing ideas in your mind simultaneously.
  • The ABCs of realistic optimism.

Do you ever struggle with prioritizing your goals and figuring out which one deserves the most attention? Does that lack of clarity ever cause you to procrastinate or feel like you’re not being as productive as you should be?

  • Understanding the key difference between a goal and a mission.
  • You can’t win a gold medal in more than one activity/sport!

  • Why the fear of going through another financial crisis (like that of 2008) prevented me from prioritizing what mattered most.
  • How I was able to overcome my addiction to work and productivity. I share the radical changes I made to my schedule so I could be fully aligned with my highest priority… family.
  • Why it’s okay if your top priority changes over time.
  • How to choose your mission and accomplish any goal!

Would you say that you’re truly happy? In 2020, I got to a place where I was so depressed that I told my wife and my friends, “I don’t remember what it feels like to be happy.” That was after I had already sent my wife a desperate text message one night that read, “I don’t want to worry you, but I feel like I don’t want to live, and I don’t know what to do.” 

I was so scared that I’d never be able to get back to a place of happiness again and couldn’t remember how to get there. But over the course of the past year, I’ve gone from being the most unhappy I’ve ever been to arguably the happiest I’ve ever been in my life. It wasn’t a change in circumstances that led me there, it was a change in how I approach and view my life.

In today’s episode of the podcast, I want to share the three steps I took to get from being completely unhappy to feeling like I’m living life in a state of joy, peace, love, and gratitude—everything that makes up the feeling of happiness.

Key Takeaways

  • Why two people whose lives look exactly the same often feel completely different.
  • Why happy people find joy in everything they do and unhappy people constantly experience emotional turmoil.
  • The reason why there’s no cookie cutter approach to happiness—and how you can remove the obstacles that stop you from feeling happy.
  • The power of choosing to be happy—and what this actually entails.
  • What happens when we accept the unchangeable, stop resisting reality, and be at peace with things exactly as they are.
  • How to find joy in everything you do and make every moment the best moment of your life.

If you’re an entrepreneur (or a wantrepreneur), this episode is for you. Today I’m talking with Gino Wickman, arguably one of the most influential entrepreneurs in modern history and bestselling author of Traction, Get a Grip, and Rocket Fuel. Perhaps even more consequential, he’s the creator of EOS (Entrepreneurial Operating System), which is used daily by over 100,000 companies around the world.

Gino’s newest book, The Entrepreneurial Leap is packed with real-life stories and advice to help others make the leap into entrepreneurship, shorten your learning curve, and produce significant results. However, this isn’t just a book for new entrepreneurs. It helped me to identify the fundamentals necessary to optimizing my business, many of which I’d skipped on my own journey.

Today, Gino and I are talking about what he’s learned about starting businesses in his 30 years of coaching entrepreneurs, the meaning of true entrepreneurship, and how to realize what you’ve been put on this earth to do.

Key Takeaways

  • The 6 essential traits to being an entrepreneur.
  • Why over 50% of new businesses are out of business in the first five years and the complicated relationship between entrepreneurship and risk taking.
  • The eight critical mistakes that even seasoned entrepreneurs make.
  • Why entrepreneurial parents shouldn’t force their kids to become entrepreneurs.
  • What makes rejection such a powerful and valuable learning experience.
  • The 9 stages of building a successful business.

Let’s be honest, life can really suck sometimes. Life can be difficult. On our worst days, life can feel downright unbearable. So, how can we be happy and enjoy our lives, more often than not?

On last week’s podcast, we began to answer this question by exploring How to Make Every Moment the Best Moment of Your Life (in case you missed that episode, I highly recommend you listen to it here first before you dive into this one). 

This week, we’re picking up where last week left off. By evaluating what enabled me to go to bed the other night, feeling like I had lived my best day ever, I’ve found a repeatable formula you can use to create the best day of your life, on any given day. 

Today I’m sharing with you what I now do that enables me to make any day the best day of my life, why I do it, and how you can too.

Key Takeaways

  • Why the best day of your life exists in isolation and not in comparison to the other days you’ve lived.
  • How to stop the things that are all but guaranteed to happen from ruining the best day of your life. (e.g. traffic, disappointments, difficult people, etc.)
  • Why living in alignment with your values is the key to experiencing a feeling of total satisfaction, fulfillment, and contentment.
  • The common obstacles to living your best day and how to tackle them, one by one.
  • The three-step formula for living the best day of your life.

If I were to ask you to recall the best moment of your life, what comes to mind…?

I think most people would recall a significant event or occasion, such as the birth of a child, their wedding day, running a marathon, or the day that they got to ______ (fill in the blank with some exceptional experience). For most, the best moment would likely be an event or circumstance and the positive emotions they experienced as a result, which prompts them to identify it as their best moment.

But what if the best moment of your life wasn’t measured by external circumstances? What if it was something you chose rather than something that occurred randomly? If that were the case, could one choose to make any, or every moment the best moment of their life? Might that be possible?

And if it was possible to choose to experience any moment as the best moment of your life, if you had that ability, what would be the repercussions of using that ability daily? How might it impact the quality of your life?

Today, we’re exploring this idea of the best moment of your life; what it’s about, if we have the power to create and experience it, if it’s left to chance, and if it’s random. I’m also going to share why people struggle with implementing this concept, and how you can overcome the struggles in a way that can significantly and immediately enhance the quality of your life.

Ultimately, in this episode I share how you can begin experiencing any moment as the best moment of your life—literally—even during extremely difficult circumstances.

Key Takeaways

  • Why pitting external circumstances against the internal experience is key to achieving inner freedom—and why inner freedom is (arguably) more important than your external circumstances.
  • How to create your inner experience during trying and emotionally painful times.
  • The power of accepting the moment as-is to invite emotional peace, inner peace, and emotional freedom.
  • How to be an island of sanity for the people closest to you in chaotic times.
  • Ways to make any given moment the best moment of your life and live in a state of perpetual fulfillment.

A few weeks ago, I did a podcast episode where I shared with you a behind-the-scenes look at my next book. On that episode, I announced that we’re going to try a new “Ask Me Anything” format on the podcast, and I invited you to submit your questions, with a promise to answer them on future episodes. 

Today is our first “Ask Me Anything” episode and I’m answering your questions—and over the last few weeks, y’all have sent in A LOT of questions! :^) 

The questions I’m answering today are about finding purpose in life, emotional intelligence, optimizing your mindset, and a number of other topics. 

If you would like to ask me a question, please go to HalElrod.com/AMA to submit it. Depending on how this goes, I’ll keep a running list of questions and answer as many as I can—perhaps as often as once or twice a month!

Key Takeaways

  • How to find purpose and hope in an uncertain future—and why you get to decide what your life is all about.
  • How to redefine success by defining your values.
  • What we can do to learn optimism and develop internal motivation to live out unwavering faith in the face of worry, doubt, and negativity.
  • How to separate yourself from outcomes as you work to hit your goals—and why committing to the process without getting attached to the result is the secret to success.
  • My simple strategy to ensure that I drink enough water to stay hydrated.
  • How to write an affirmation to help ensure you will commit yourself to achieve your goal, no matter how challenging it is.

Have you ever taken the time to examine your identity and how it’s impacted your life? For most of us, that’s not something we ever even think of doing. Our identity kind of runs in the background, and yet it impacts everything we do. 

Every day we show up and live our lives based on who we believe we are and how we perceive ourselves—and these beliefs can either help us or hurt us. In essence, what we believe about ourselves—good OR bad—is what we become.

Today, we’re going to bring our unexamined identities to the surface and I’m going to share actionable steps you can take to intentionally and strategically upgrade your identity in order to upgrade your reality.

Key Takeaways

  • How anyone can upgrade their identity to improve any aspect of their life.
  • Why so many top performers activate an “alter ego” so they can perform at their best.
  • How I upgraded my identity as a father to transcend mediocrity and show up for my kids as “Superdad.”
  • How you can conceptualize what it means to be a peak performer in any environment and define your ideal identity.
  • What you can do to create an opportunity for virtually instant transformation.
  • The four simple steps you can take to identify which aspects of your identity you need to improve, what might be holding you back, what you want to change, and how to live it.

Ever since my last book published (The Miracle Equation), I’ve been working on a new book that I truly believe will be my most important contribution to date. Recently, I had a bit of an unconventional idea, which is for you, me, and our community to co-create the book together.

In order to do that, I’ve already been sharing and testing concepts from the book on this podcast over the last few months, and on today’s episode I want to go one step further: I want to break down the current manuscript with you, chapter-by-chapter, and get your thoughts and feedback.

As of now, the book is tentatively titled The Miracle Life and is about showing you how to experience what I call “true freedom” by accessing your inherent ability to choose how you experience life in every moment, regardless of your circumstances.

Also, as part of the process of co-creating this book with you, I’ll be doing an “Ask Me Anything” episode soon, to learn what you most want help with. And I set up a page for you to submit any question you have for me. So, if you have a question that you’d like to ask me—any question at all—please submit it at HalElrod.com/AMA. I look forward to answering your question on an upcoming podcast episode!

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • The factors that hold us back from experiencing true freedom.
  • What it means to achieve the “next level” of success and fulfillment in the most important area(s) of your life—and how to make that happen.
  • The value of changing the rules of how you play the game of life.
  • How to find true joy in the perfection of every moment, exactly as it is.
  • Why this new book will NOT end in a 30-day Challenge, but instead it will be a 30-day Sabbatical.

Finding the balance between work life and family life isn’t always easy. Whether you’re a father, a mother, or a spouse without kids, there’s no feeling quite like that of thriving in your personal relationships. But it takes hard work, setting priorities, and a strong community to truly thrive. 

Today, I’m speaking to one of my closest friends, Jon Vroman. We just spent four days together at a retreat led by his organization, Front Row Dads – a group for entrepreneurial-minded dads who believe in family first.

How does one go from completely lacking confidence and not using their voice to being able to effectively inspire, lead, and influence others? How do you get over your fear of saying the wrong thing, or feeling unqualified? And how do you transform yourself, become fearless, and help others change their lives for the better?

Here to help me answer these questions is my good friend, Brianna Greenspan. Brianna and I first met when she hired me to be her life & business coach over 15 years ago. Now, she uses her voice to further the Miracle Morning mission, hosting the official Miracle Morning Clubhouse room for over 2,000 people each day (live from 8:00-10:00 a.m. Eastern time). She is also the co-creator of The Miracle Morning Art of Affirmations, a positive affirmation coloring book for adults and kids.

Today, Brianna joins the podcast to share the process she went through to conquer her fears of putting herself out there and sharing her message with the world. She talks about how you can model her transformation, develop confidence and amplify your voice to help others.

During today’s conversation, here’s what you’ll learn:

  • How Brianna conquered some tough health challenges to show up in her life like never before.
  • How Brianna used the Miracle Morning practice to unmute herself after decades of being a person who never raised her hand in class or spoke in public.
  • What Clubhouse is, how Brianna is using it to build a new side of the Miracle Morning community, and how it is transforming lives.
  • How Brianna has started Miracle Morning programs in schools across the world. 
  • How to use your voice to inspire fellow leaders and change the world at scale.
  • Steps you can take right now to start using your voice to share your message with the world. 
  • Why humanity needs individual personal leadership right now.

Today we’re answering the following questions, together: 

  • Do goals still matter, or should we just focus on being in the moment and enjoying our lives? 
  • Or can we do both? 
  • And if goals do matter, is there any part of the process of achieving a goal that is more important for us to focus on than the goal itself? 
  • And if there is a part of the process of achieving our goals that deserves more of our focus, what is that and how can we harness it to achieve and experience everything we want in life? 

I’ve recently overcome some struggles when it comes to setting and achieving goals, and in this episode, I’m asking questions as I explore and share how my perspective and practice has changed over time. 

You’ll learn some of the pros and cons of goal setting, how to identify the real purpose of your goals (and why it’s rarely about successfully achieving them), and some simple steps on how to effectively set goals and establish effective behaviors.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How goal setting can stop you from being present.
  • Why we often falsely believe that achieving our goals means that we’ve succeeded - and why our feeling of satisfaction after achieving a goal can ring so hollow.
  • Why moving in the direction of a goal matters more than hitting a target or achieving a specific outcome. 
  • The process I learned at 19 to set and achieve goals - and how accountability helped me pursue sales records, write books, and grow every business I’ve ever aspired to build.

Okay, so I’m going to start by warning you that today’s podcast episode (and this email) might be a little more “woo-woo” than you’re used to from me. :^) 

I recorded today’s episode a few days ago, directly after I experienced one of the best Miracle Mornings of my life. I went deeper into meditation than I usually do, opening myself up to a message I felt I needed to receive, and got back something more direct, specific, and experiential than I expected.

I felt like I was given the secret to accessing heaven on earth. And after I finished my meditation, I went out and lived it. I was able to look at myself with unconditional love, see the perfection in each moment, and be present to what came to me as the holy trinity of miracles: body + planet + spirit.

I told you today’s a little woo-woo. :^) 

In this episode, I encourage you to ask yourself, “What is heaven on Earth, and how can I experience it?” I also share a perspective I had as to what constitutes heaven on earth might be like, and why it may just be available to us at all times.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • The holy trinity of miracles
  • Why the human race was given everything we need to experience heaven on earth (and how we might have messed it up) 
  • How meditation can help us connect and communicate with a higher consciousness
  • Why life is a buffet of ideas, concepts, principles, and practices - and how to find what works best for you
  • How to work on loving yourself, being yourself, and living freely
  • Why unlearning everything gives us the power to be truly present

Today’s guest has touched the hearts and minds of millions of people worldwide, helping them to upgrade their lives with his teachings of self-mastery, radical self-acceptance, and inspired action.

I’m referring to my good friend, and one of the most enlightened individuals I’ve ever met, Jesse Elder. 

Jesse is a speaker, mentor, entrepreneur, and all around lover of life. In our unscripted and uncensored conversation today, Jesse and I touch on a variety of topics, including the balance between ambition and happiness, why you don’t have to wait to experience freedom and joy, dealing with negative opinions, preparing for disasters, and much more. 

If you want to better understand how you can expand your life (not out of fear) and experience more freedom and joy, this episode is for you!

During today’s conversation, here’s what you’ll learn:

  • Why it’s so hard to make a difference in the world if you’re not having fun.
  • Why people who focus their energy on producing amazing free content break Jesse’s heart.
  • The difference between rejection and refusal - and why the responses you get from people often have nothing to do with you personally.
  • How being curious and hungry can bring out curiosity and hunger in others.
  • The value of being prepared for disasters, war, and power outages - and why it’s important to be “aware, but not afraid” and “prepared, but not paranoid.”
  • Why Jesse sees his life as indestructible.

How do you define happiness? And what if you had the power to be genuinely happy, all the time, no matter what was going on in your life? 

We’ve been conditioned to believe that happiness is something to be attained through achievement, success, and validation from others. Oftentimes, we make the mistake of treating happiness like it’s some sort of goal we must reach...  

If only I had more money…

If only I had a different career…”

If only I had better relationships...

“If only I had a more… different... better…” 

The truth is that happiness isn’t something you attain; it’s within you. It’s available to you 24/7, and it isn’t dependent on anything outside of you. You just need to understand how to tap into it. 

In today’s episode, I’m going to give you the tools to experience true happiness — even during difficult times — and teach you how to consistently wake up every day feeling like it’s the best day of your life (because it truly can be).

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Redefining happiness and success – and why these things normally overlap.
  • Why seeking validation from others makes your happiness conditional - and is both dangerous and highly addictive.
  • How we can choose to be happy independent of our conditions, even when facing adversity.
  • Why choosing unconditional happiness doesn’t mean rejecting sadness or depression. 
  • The three components of my current definition of happiness, how it has evolved over time, and ideas to create your own.

Have you ever thought about writing a book? Have you considered the impact that writing a book can make on your life and your financial security? Did you know that you can literally write and publish a book in as little as 90 days?

Personally, I can tell you that writing and self-publishing my book The Miracle Morning is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, because it enabled me to help millions of other people while providing financial security for my family. So, I’m committed to help as many other people as possible to experience those benefits. 

In today’s podcast episode, you’ll get to listen in on my conversation with my long time friend, bestselling author and founder of Self-Publishing School, Chandler Bolt. You’ll hear Chandler’s incredible story (that you can learn from and model) of how he self-published his first book at 20 years old and turned that into a $26 million business by age 27! But first… 

* ANNOUNCEMENT *

Before you listen to today's episode, I have an exciting announcement to share with you. Next week, I’ll be co-hosting two live online Masterclasses (at no cost to you) with my long time friend, bestselling author and founder of Self-Publishing School, Chandler Bolt. One Masterclass is for aspiring authors who want to write a book, and the other is for new or established authors who want to sell more books:

LIVE Masterclass #1: How to Write & Publish a Bestselling Book in as Little as 90 Days that Grows Your Impact, Income, and Business

Click here to register now

Again, there is NO CHARGE to you for either of these live Masterclasses.

So, if you’ve ever wanted to publish a book to get your message out to the world and create passive income, today’s podcast episode is a must-listen, and I recommend registering for one of the Masterclasses.

During today’s conversation, here’s what you’ll learn:

  • Why and how to establish “proof of concept” before you write your book or start your business. 
  • Why a book has the unique power to change lives decades or centuries later.
  • How to identify what you should write your book about. 
  • The three things holding people back from writing books - and the two big reasons people should write them. 
  • How Chandler kick started his career by volunteering at events he couldn’t afford to attend.

  • The difference between taking risks and being risky.

Do you struggle with your visualization practice? I know I do - it’s the least strong of my S.A.V.E.R.S. and something I’m always looking to better understand, enhance, and otherwise improve. 

This is why today’s episode is guest hosted by my good friend, Chip Franks. In addition to being an incredible author, stroke survivor, father, and husband, Chip is an expert when it comes to the Miracle Morning and each of the S.A.V.E.R.S. And when he surprised me with this podcast episode that he recorded specifically for our community, I immediately wanted to share it with you. 

Today, Chip goes deep into visualization. You’ll learn why it’s the least understood of the S.A.V.E.R.S., what makes it so important, and discover 10 ways to get creative with your visualization practice.

During today’s conversation, here’s what you’ll learn:

  • #1: Be clear on what you want to visualize, and use your goals or a feeling that you want to have happen in your life to guide your visualization.
  • #2: Take the hammer approach instead of the butterfly approach.
  • #3: Engage every sense in your visualization to make the experience more awesome.
  • #4: Deeply feel your visualization to give your subconscious something to work on.
  • #5: Use the two-part visualization to imagine not just your end goal, but the steps you’ll take to get there.
  • #6: Visualize in both the first- and third-person.
  • #7: Push through the hard parts to conquer obstacles and prevent yourself from failing prematurely.
  • #8: Create deep intention with no attachments.
  • #9: Use visualization to act perfectly.
  • #10: Combine visualization with your other S.A.V.E.R.S. to bring the best out of everything.

Ever since I finished writing my last book (The Miracle Equation), I’ve been actively learning and evolving in an attempt to figure out one thing: how can I best contribute to humanity? In other words, what do all of us need that I might be able to help people experience? 

Through daily meditation and prayer, engaging with your community, and consistently reading and learning, I have become more and more clear. I’m currently deep into the research phase, which means I’m reading and re-reading 6 or 7 books right now, as well as constantly striving to become the person I need to be to live and ultimately deliver that message. 

Rather than make you wait until a new book, in today’s episode, I’d like to share with you what I’ve been learning as I’ve experienced it. I want to give you some new distinctions, insights, lessons, strategies, and knowledge that you can use to improve your own life - however they may serve you.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Why my main goal right now is to achieve inner freedom and to be in a place where no circumstances, and nothing anyone says or does can affect my emotional state - and why it’s okay if I never get there.
  • The power of surrender. 
  • Why it’s impossible not to be selfish as we work to become the best versions of ourselves - and why that’s okay.
  • The books I’ve been diving into over the last year - and what I’ve learned from them.
