Let me preface this episode by stating that there is a BIG difference between knowing that to think (it’s easy because in most cases you are told and programmed what to think) vs. HOW to think.  


It’s now December, 8 and half months since COVID began.  At that time, many if not most people were totally unprepared mentally to deal with the fear and uncertainty that came along with it.  


Well, supposed things got ‘worse’.  What are you going to do then?  


Start training your mind-set now.  Your mind will create your world and your mindset will be the one thing that can help you weather any storm.


But, it won’t perform to its full capabilities if you’re just waiting and wishing.  


Working on your mind is as important if not more so than working out with your body.  


In today’s episode, I discuss:


-The importance of your morning routine


-Why focus will determine your beliefs


-The famous skill of reframing and some key questions you can use to reframe


Enjoy the episode!

In today’s episode, I want to shine light on other aspects of your health besides being told to hide out from others, distance and wear a mask.  


When we look at something like Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, we can see the different elements of health and why all must be addressed.  


Listen to find out:


-Why sunlight is critical, especially right now


-Why walking will boost health big time


-Why levels 3 and 4 of Maslow’s pyramid are critical to your health


-How to recognize freeze mode so that you can get out of it


Remember, logic and emotion do not mix.  When we are being told constantly to live in a state of fear, it can easily put  a person into threat mode, making the rest of your health and life almost impossible to navigate.


Enjoy the  episode!

One of the most frequent topics I get privately asked about has to do with fear.  


Over the years it seems that people have come to see me as an expert in handling fear and I  take that as an honor as I only teach what I do and have done.


Fear resides in your mind.


In this episode, I talk about:


-Why all fear is imaginary, therefore, not real


-The two big types of fear


-Your belief systems


-The ultimate fear for the human being


And more, enjoy the show!

In 2012, I hired a guy named Vince to Coach me as I transitioned full-time into Newell Strength.  


It’s been 8 years and I am still with him.  Why? Well, I see the tremendous value in the Coaching and I know the investment continues to pay off, month after month, year after year.


In today’s episode, I go over:


-Clarity: why your brain craves this to move on your ideas


-Focus: putting your attention where it needs to be


-Direction: as long as you are moving in the right direction, you’ll eventually get to where you want to be


-Strategy: strategies will withstand the test of time, tactics will not.  Know the difference


-Support: you need someone to constantly help you put your right brain to work, so you can hold strong the vision that you are working on creating


Enjoy and spread the word!

In my freshman year of highschool, I remember being ridiculed in front of the class by a teacher of mine for no particular reason, during a talk she wanted me to give.  


That set off a fear of speaking in front of others.  


This continued for subsequent years until I decided to do something about it. 


In this episode, I talk about my 3 step process for overcoming weaknesses:








When you follow these 3 steps, you can turn any weakness into a great strength.  


Enjoy the show!

‘If you want to find the secrets to the universe, look no further than energy, frequency and vibration.’ -Nikola Tesla

And it begins with self-awareness.

Too many people make the mistake of thinking their workouts are solely for weight loss purposes.  


The first question you have to address is, ‘What’s the goal of your workout?’


In today’s episode I cover:

-The approach to mindset in your workouts

-Why you should always be trying to raise your energy levels

-Why I listen to ‘lame’ music in my workouts


Decide you are going to be different and a whole new set of doors open up for you.

In life, you don’t have success just because you want it.


Nor is going around, feeling like you ‘have to’ have it, going to work. 


In today’s episode, I discuss the 3 levels of commitment psychology:

-You Want to (infantile ego)

-You NEED to (rebellion mindset)

-I WILL (a champion’s mindset)

Two weekends ago, I finished a book called the Circadian Code, which was authored by, ironically, Dr. Panda.  


Some of the book was rudimentary, but as I got to the end there were about 10 pages of cool research that validated stuff I’ve been teaching in the Panda Program.  Yes, this is the best eating system in the world if your goal is energy and permanent weight loss, but it’s nice to see my philosophy validated by a fellow expert’s book.


In today’s episode, I talk about some of the stuff that was within those 10 pages.

About 12 years ago, I learned from my Coach, Scott Abel, at the time, that the one thing people fear most is change, yet change is the only constant in life.  


Isn’t that ironic?


Yet, it’s important for you to remember that the change isn’t random, it’s driven. 


Everything that happens in the universe follows the law of cause and effect.  Nothing escapes this law.

My mom has been giving me some of my old stuff and I came across some notecards from a speech I gave in 2007.  In life, the most powerful weapon, which can be used for greatness, is your mind.  Listen in for the talking points I spoke about then that hold true more than ever.  Enjoy! 

Aug 18, 2020

What is mindset and where does it come from? It it just chance?  Nope, your mind is hardwired for the negative and once you recognize this fact of life, you can get to work on rising about the head trash that so many people get stuck in.  Enjoy!

In this episode, I am back with my good friend, Brandon Kelly.  In this episode, we discuss hitting the reset button in your life, fasting and turning 40.  Enjoy the episode!

Be tough like silk.  Doesn't seem to make sense on the surface.  But then again, neither does the fact that life is most magical on the thin border between order and chaos.  In today's episode, I dive into some of these concepts, taken from Jordan Peterson's book, 12 Rules for Life.  Enjoy!

Daryn is a long time friend of mine.  I reached out to him to start a series of discussions about getting to the root of the problem when it comes to issues that seem to repeat themselves amongst those that come from tougher childhoods, regardless of race.  One of the main things is building trust amongst ourselves, rather than division, so we can give a helping hand up, rather than a hand out. 

Jul 21, 2020

Take a 'fly on the wall' listen to my conversation with Brandon.  This is how we rap off camera and this is what you'll see as more episodes of the two of us discussing concepts like less is more, roll out.  Enjoy and share if you liked it! 

Jul 14, 2020

In today's episode, I talk about the division that has come about since the tragic George Floyd incident.  Two of my friends and staff members, Aliyah and Peaches, asked to have an open dialogue with me a few weeks ago and this was the result of that conversation.  Remember, questions provide clarity, clarity is the only way we can move forward. Enjoy!

In today's episode, I break down the 4 chemicals of a happy brain, goal setting and the only true path to happiness.  You may have to listen twice, but learning about your brain is one of the greatest ways to achieve your highest potential that there is!

In today's episode, I address the haters, including:

-Passive aggressiveness

-the 25% of people that love you

-15 minutes of fame

-Time and attention

Sometimes we need to hit the pause button.


In today’s episode, I encourage you to take a deep breath with me and observe.  


Breathing is key to being present.


Being present is the key to living.

Today's episode was created from a place of love.  I know in my heart what the correct course of action is at this point.  It's time for those that are ready to move forward. But to do that, we need to understand the real fear.  At this point, for most, it's not about fear of the virus; it's about fear of repercussions, fear of consequences and fear of judgment.  In the meantime, the world is rapidly changing for the future of our children.  Enjoy the episode!
