Code 2.0

Imagine going through your day without a set of values guiding your behavior. The slightest temptation can blow you off course at any given time.

When we don’t live by a particular set of values, our conduct will fluctuate and become inconsistent.

A code of conduct is a compass for life. It keeps us headed in the right direction. And with it, we know exactly what we’re not willing to compromise. 

In this episode, you’ll discover why you should build a set of values and a code of conduct that will help you build and maintain success.

Listen now.

Best of 2022: Offended

We have all been offended at some point in our lives. And whether the person knows they offended you or had no idea, it probably ruined the relationship. 

When you feel doubt and disappointment in someone, it’s impossible to see past the situation. You never resolve things and still feel the pain from yesterday. 

But refusing to let go only tarnishes your future. You can’t feel kindness from others or find new opportunities. Learning not to be offended is the highest form of freedom to yourself. You choose what controls you. 

In this episode, you’ll discover the freedom of not getting offended (and how to move through your past).

Expectations

What is your ultimate goal in life? And more importantly, what steps are you taking today to achieve that goal? 

Here’s why I ask:

When we set goals, especially massive goals, it can burden us with stress. This type of stress results in procrastination, perfectionism, and giving up. But when you set proper expectations, you control your attitude and your actions. 

In fact, these expectations are the difference between reaching your wildest goals or giving up on them because you didn’t realize how close to them you were. 

In this episode, you’ll discover how expectations free you from stress and help you conquer your dreams with ease.

Listen now. 

Show Highlights Include:

  • Why reaching only 50% of your goals gives you a “hall-of-fame” career in any endeavor you try ([1:15]
  • The simple 2-step formula for unleashing joy throughout your body (even if others upset you) ([3:01])
  • The “Daily Expectations” secret for achieving almost any goal you strive for ([4:37])

Storms

Nobody can survive their entire life without being leveled by a few personal storms. Whether they be financial, spiritual, physical, or with your relationships. 

Most people shy away from storms—my old self included, when my first wife passed. I weaponized blame, and used it to cope, not realizing it snatched the benefits of the storm from right under me. 

But this storm caused me to have an epiphany:

Just as nature needs natural storms to cleanse and blow out dead debris for new life, humans need personal storms to make us stronger, more resilient, and redefine our life’s purpose. 

In this episode, you’ll discover why every storm has a silver lining—no matter how hopeless it seems at the moment. Plus, I’ll give you a few simple techniques to overcome storms easier. 

Listen now.
