Are you really living up to your potential?

Do you have goals, passions, and aspirations that are slowly dying because you are not taking action on them?

No matter where you are in your life right now, things can and will be improved if you have the audacity to take a new action.

You’ve probably heard the saying, “If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’re going to keep getting what you’re getting.”

It’s a simple principle about life that if you want something new, then it requires a new action. Break the old pattern, and you can instantly see change.

Now, it’s not just the action that gets you there… The action is actually an end result of something far more powerful. The action comes from who you are - the mindset you carry, and who you believe yourself to be.

This is my distinguished guest’s specialty… Helping you to get inside and change the beliefs you carry about yourself. Helping you to identify where you’ve been holding back… where you’ve been feeding yourself a disempowering story… and how to change it.

Today we are honored to have on Eric Thomas, Phd - better known to his fans all over the world as ET!

Not only is he a critically acclaimed author and internationally renowned speaker, but he’s also one of the most sought after voices of positive empowerment online. So much so that his time is regularly requested by huge brands like the NFL ,the NBA, and AT&T because he is truly such a difference maker.

I can’t even begin to tell you how powerful this episode is…

If you are ever in need of a breakthrough, simply click play on this episode and Eric will help you get there.

In this episode you'll discover:

  • How Eric went from being homeless to impacting the lives of millions.
  • What it means to “fail forward”.
  • Why up-leveling our environment and the people in our lives is entirely up to us.
  • What you can use to start changing your mindset and get clear on your vision.

It’s a big mistake to believe that exercise is all about looking good.

Sure a flat stomach or 6-pack abs can be a nice side effect, but the biological necessity for exercise goes far beyond appearance.

Our genes literally expect us to exercise.

It’s written into our genetic code that movement and exercise is required for basic and enhanced functions to happen.

Exercise is a direct channel to “turning on” higher order functions of your brain and body. We can literally increase our mental energy, prevent disease, and lengthen our lifespan by reaping the benefits of exercise.

Today you’re going to discover how all of this works and so much more. Just click play, take good notes, and (most importantly) go and get some exercise when it’s over!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • Why people who exercise have been found to be more productive.
  • How the symptoms of depression can be reversed through exercise.
  • Why exercise is so critical to detoxification.
  • How exercise can literally increase your lifespan.
  • What makes exercise so effective at stress relief.
  • The surprising impact that exercise has on confidence and body image.
  • How exercise improves your memory.
  • The incredible impact exercise in schools has on behavior problems.
  • Why eating healthier becomes easier when you exercise.
  • How exercise can protect your brain from neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s.
  • What exercise can do to protect you from infections and diseases.

For a lot of us, nothing says love like some delicious milk and cookies.

Or maybe it’s ice cream that you just can’t do without? Or hard cheeses? Or yogurt? Or maybe you get really sexy and dip your food into fondue?

Whatever it may be that pulls on those heart strings for you, one thing is for certain: Dairy has a huge emotional connection with people in our world today.

This, my health seeking friend, is at the very center of the situation…

When it comes to dairy, a lot of people may be aware of the ill effects, but if you try to take it away they’ll cling on to that Ben & Jerry’s container like it’s the bonafide love of their life.

They’ll say, “I’ll follow your fancy nutrition advice Mr. Health Guy, but I’m not giving up my dairy!”

First of all, I’m not the guy that’s interested in taking things away from people. But if it’s causing you health problems like diabetes, high body fat, and allergies (you’re about to learn about all of that stuff in a minute) then maybe you might want to leave it alone for a while.

As I step back so that I don’t get stabbed with an ice cream scooper… I’m here to share why, in fact, dairy is so addictive and at the same time so harmful for most people.

Today we’re going to breakdown some long-believed myths about dairy in a way that’s going to blow your mind (and possibly stop you from blowing up bathrooms if you are lactose intolerant).

In all seriousness, what you’re about to learn today will be life-changing for you and the people you care about. It’s not that dairy is inherently “bad”, it’s just the way that it’s being produced and consumed today that can cause good people a lot of problems.

Enjoy the powerhouse content, but also stay tuned until the end to hear what alternatives to go with (dairy and dairy-free) that actually taste amazing. This is your body and your health, so take action to make it as great as possible!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • What enzymes are and what happens to them when they’re cooked.
  • The shocking number of illnesses that pasteurized dairy as been associated with.
  • What milk actually is (this is important!)
  • How important colostrum is to human health.
  • When humans first began domesticating animals for milk.
  • Why the milk our ancestors consumed is not remotely close to the milk we consume today.
  • What pasteurization is and how it was invented.
  • Why homogenization is used in commercial milk.
  • How selective breeding dramatically changed the quality of conventional dairy products.
  • The difference between A1 cows and A2 cows (critical to know!)
  • Which animals are typically utilized for milk around the world (this will surprise you!)
  • How neurological illnesses like schizophrenia are heavily linked to a certain type of dairy.
  • Why food is not really just food.
  • Why the dangers of dairy from sick animals can potentially be worse than the meat from sick animals.
  • How many people lose the ability to digest milk sugar as we age.
  • Why cheese is highly addictive (scientifically proven!)
  • How recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH) impacts the health of cows.
  • How a bovine cancer epidemic lead to a huge recall on beef.
  • What abnormal foods and drugs are given to conventional dairy cows.
  • The shocking way that cow’s milk impacts type 1 diabetes.
  • How molecular mimicry and autoimmune conditions can be caused by dairy.
  • Why calcium and dairy do NOT necessarily create strong bones.
  • Why raw milk might be better for those with asthma and allergies.
  • How consumption of milk can lead to accelerated weight gain.
  • Why dairy is actually a higher carbohydrate food.
  • What smart alternatives you can utilize instead of conventional dairy foods.

“Most people who meet my wife quickly conclude that she is remarkable. They are right about this. She is smart, funny and thoroughly charming. Often, after hearing her speak at some function or working with her on a project, people will approach me and say something to the effect of, you know, I think the world of you, but your wife, wow!”

These words from President Barack Obama couldn't describe my experience any more perfectly.

I've had the honor of helping to uplift and empower countless people, but when anyone gets a chance to meet my wife, they realize where all of the really good stuff is coming from.

This woman is phenomenal. She's literally a breath of fresh air whenever you walk into a room that she's in. She's gorgeous, silly, loving and beyond intelligent. I seriously think I get smarter just by some weird osmosis from being around her.

Now, let's be clear. She will tell you that she didn't get this way overnight. Sure many of these qualities were innately within her, but it was through self-work, introspection, making mistakes, and self-care that she was able to become the woman she is today.

The self-work came from hitting the floor in so many situations in her life that she had to choose to raise her standards or stay glued firmly to the ground. The introspection was the hard work to look within and to see where her fears were at play, and the excuses that she had leaned on to justify not reaching her potential. Making mistakes came naturally as you employ the trial and success method to figure out what works for you as a unique individual with unique circumstances. The self-care is what enabled her to feel good, strong, beautiful, and capable of gracefully handling all of challenges that life throws your way.

And all of this is a small piece of her story, but today you're going to learn far more and be able to glean some life-changing insights from her example.

There is a balancing force within the universe that resides within all women.

When a woman feels beautiful, appreciated, and strong within herself, unbounded miracles begin to happen around her.

Diane Mariechild said, “A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.” As men, we have to help create the conditions for the women in our lives to thrive. Because truly, nothing can give us more strength than the support of a woman who owns her real power.

There are a lot of valuable insights here for all women and all men, all mom and all dads, and all people who want to do something exceptional in their lives. On top of that, we're sharing some tips our family uses to eat healthy with all of the busy stuff going on, so this episode is jam-packed with goodness.

In this episode you'll discover:

  • How the American fast food culture can be an addictive shock for foreigners.
  • Why destiny can sometimes be found within the loving arms of a gym.
  • How a cancer scare became a catalyst for change in our family's lives.
  • What your body's "innate intelligence" has to do with healing.
  • What triggered the shift in my career from working in a gym to helping people with chronic illnesses.
  • Why doubt can sabotage the results in your healing.
  • The weird reason that Anne makes the bed each morning (it works though!).
  • What my wife's morning routine looks like.
  • How Anne is able to switch gears between family, wife, and work roles so efficiently.
  • What strategies Anne uses to feed the family healthy food with a busy lifestyle.
  • What "back up plans" we have to eat the best food possible in a pinch.

Legendary coach Paul “Bear” Bryant said, "It's not the will to win that matters - everyone has that. It's the will to prepare to win that matters.” 

Great success is not a mere accident. Smart preparation is what tends to set incredible achievers apart from the rest of the pack. Having the audacity to create an intelligent plan can stack so many conditions in your favor that seems impossible to fail.

The trouble is, creating a plan and finding the right blueprint can be an arduous task if you haven’t been there before. If you haven’t seen what’s on the other side of the goal you’re chasing after, then mapping out the right steps to get there might be tricky. This is where a cornerman like Dr. Jeff Spencer steps in.

Dr. Spencer has had the opportunity to work along side and coach many of the greatest performers of our time. Olympic Champions and cultural icons alike, they have sought out his expertise to help them breakthrough and get to the next level.

It may have been breaking out of a slump, or it may have been creating a calculated plan of action. Regardless of what was needed, it’s well known on the champion’s playground that Dr. Jeff Spencer is the man to call.

I’m honored to share be able to share Dr. Spencer’s wisdom with you today. You are going to learn, without a doubt, that there is a specific blueprint (a Champion’s Blueprint!) that will help you to achieve all of your goals and reach your fullest potential. 

Benjamin Franklin stated simply that, “If you fail to prepare, then you are preparing to fail.” This is why what you’re about to learn today is so valuable. So, tune in, take good notes, and take full advantage!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • How Dr. Spencer came from extremely challenging conditions to being one of the most sought after coaches in the world.
  • How Dr. Spencer discovered a formula that anyone could use to replicate success.
  • Why some people do great in some areas of their life, but struggle in others.
  • What 8 specific steps that every prolific performer goes through to achieve at their highest level.
  • Why The Champion’s Blueprint begins with legacy.
  • The critical keys people often miss when creating a vision of their ideal life.
  • What an emotive force is and how it relates to goal achievement.
  • Why simply having a positive mindset can be misleading.
  • How preparation can make our biggest challenges seem easy.
  • Why taking a smart inventory will help you to achieve your goals faster.
  • The difference between Human Nature and Champion Nature.
  • What happens when your greatest moments become your new normal.
  • Why your growth and improvement can create negative kickback from your family and friends.

Life today can seem more competitive than ever. Whether it's in your relationships, work, or even your health, there are so many options to choose from - and so many people fighting for the same things.

So, how do you stand out? How do you stack the conditions in your favor to get what you really want?

The answers to these questions could mean the difference between having the life that you want and having a life that's a continuous struggle. Because of this I wanted to find someone who truly exemplifies breaking through and capitalizing on opportunities. Not only that, I wanted to find someone who's passionate about giving back and sharing what they know, and that's why I connected with former NFL Pro Bowl quarterback Jeff Blake.

Jeff not only has a great story and wisdom to share in getting ahead, but he also has great wisdom to share as far as long-term health and wellness.

You may already realize that many professional athletes take a downward turn in their health after their playing days are done. This is what happened to Jeff as well, but he found a way to turn it around quickly. He's here to share his insights with you in all of these fields and more. So just click play on the audio above or the video below, listen in, and enjoy!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • The surprising path that Jeff Blake took in getting to the NFL.
  • How the environment we’re in deeply impacts our results in life.
  • Why cutting away the excuses from our story can lead to big breakthroughs.
  • How finding your unique niche can give you a huge competitive advantage.
  • Why who you know often matters more than what you know (this is true whether we like it or not… so utilize it with integrity!)
  • Why you need to stay ready for your opportunity when it presents itself.
  • How to outsmart fear and perform at a higher level.
  • What happens to a lot of athlete’s health after their playing days are over.
  • The shocking number of professional football players that end up with brain damage.
  • What secret health practices this former Pro Bowl quarterback uses to stay fit and healthy as he gets older.
  • What impacts our health even more powerfully than our genetics.
  • Why many professional athletes can be deficient in life skills.
