Overcoming

Everyone goes through seasons of gut-wrenching grief and misery. But great people aren’t defined by their successes, but by how they bounce back from failure. 

And I have good news if you need to overcome any sort of trauma or negative emotions:

Overcoming holds no educational level. It holds no status. It takes no financial requirements. Instead, it requires a simple choice: helping others. 

Helping others provides therapeutic benefits for you, and massive benefits for those you’re helping. 

In this episode, you’ll discover how serving others helps you overcome anything you’re dealing with (even the tragic passing of a loved one). 

Listen now. 

Show Highlights Include:

  • How one simple thought instantly pulls you out of the dumps whenever life beats you down ([0:27]
  • The selfish reason for helping others and overcoming any mental turmoil you’re facing ([1:03]
  • The 3 words my dad told me as I stared at my first wife’s casket which saved me from breaking down (and how these 3 words will empower you too) ([1:14]
  • How to overcome the worst season of gut-wrenching grief in your life doing nothing more than helping others ([2:56]

Go, go, go. Spend, spend, spend. Buy, buy, buy.

Gratitude is the key to getting out of this rut.

In this episode, I discuss how consumer culture destroys happiness, why gratitude is in short supply today, and an exercise you can do to instantly become more grateful.

Encore: Legacy 2.0

Everyone wants to pass down a legacy to their children and grandchildren when they pass. But most people get this idea wrong. They think their legacy only means monetary and material items they leave behind.

Listen now and start leaving an unforgettable impact everywhere you go.
