What we are able to have, give, do and become in our lives is largely determined by how we choose to spend our time. Seneca said, “It is not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste a lot of it. Life is long enough, and a sufficiently generous amount has been given to us for the highest achievements if it were all well invested.”

A big secret to success in life is learning how to focus on what really matters. And at no other point in human history has focus been such a hugely scarce commodity. If you can reacquire your focus, and place it intently on the thing that matters most, then there’s absolutely no limit to what you can achieve. That’s why I had to talk with Jay Papasan.

Jay is the co-author of the bestselling, mega-hit book The One Thing. Today he’s here to share with you some priceless wisdom to help you live the life you want, break through your mental barriers, and become the best version of yourself. The tips and insights are running wild in this episode, so make sure you’re ready to catch them!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • Why food and memories are intimately linked up in our minds.
  • Why it’s never your “title” that defines you.
  • What The One Thing really is (this is life-changing!).
  • How attempting to do everything right can be a bigtime spiritual stressor.
  • How to create the “Domino Effect” in the most important areas of life.
  • How to find The One Thing for transforming your body.
  • How you can find out what YOUR one thing is.
  • The surprising impact of multitasking (this is mind-blowing!).
  • What your willpower actually is and how it’s always negative and positive.
  • Why willpower is a nutrition issue.
  • What megaphobia is and how it’s probably impacting your life.
  • What a focusing question is and why it’s a MUST to have one.

“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.” This is a quote from the ever-wise Dale Carnegie. And this is the first statement that comes to mind when I think of the courage of Vani Hari.

Vani is an action-taker. She began her life like many of us in modern society… fast food, fast life, and a fast-track to a date with disease.

Her action-taking nature was being used against her, and it landed her in a hospital bed, facing invasive surgery, and an important life decision.

Vani was hurt. She, like millions of others, put her trust in the corporations that manufacture the food that landed on her plate every day. Through a series of events (that you’re going to learn about today) she discovered that many of these multi-billion companies were putting chemicals in their foods that were leading to serious (and sometimes fatal) conditions for more people than you can imagine.

When she was presented with this information she had a choice. She could sit back and complain, or she could actually do something about it. And she decided to act!

But how in the world can a person take on a multi-billion dollar company? They have deep pockets, sly marketing reps and “fixers”, and legions of lawyers paid top dollar to make sure that your concerns never see the light of day.

It is a modern day David & Goliath story… And you know how that ended for Goliath.

The road hasn’t been easy, but by looking fear in the face, taking inspired action, and having the heart to make a real difference, Vani has helped to make changes to the food system that you have likely experienced firsthand even though you may have never heard her name before.

Today we are honoring Vani, and we are fortunate enough to have her here to share her story. It’s inspiring, and it’s also laced with important life lessons. Enjoy, and please make sure to stay connected with Vani and The Food Babe Army because together WE are really the agents of change for the health of our future generations.

In this episode you'll discover:

  • How eating to “fit in” can lead to some big health challenges.
  • How an invasive surgery triggered a transformation in Vani’s life.
  • What surprising role your appendix plays in your health.
  • What inspired Vani to leave her corporate job and pursue a career in health & wellness full-time.
  • Why Kraft Foods used different ingredients in other countries for their super-popular macaroni & cheese.
  • Why artificial food dyes are a huge potential health problem.
  • How Vani was able to get multi-billion dollar food companies to make their products healthier.
  • What some of The Sickening 15 are (and why you need to avoid them!).
  • Why growth hormone is used in our food supply.
  • The shocking amount of the world’s antibiotics that are given to livestock.
  • How pesticides can seriously damage your health.
  • Why shifting our demand is so critical to shifting our food system.
  • How many synthetic ingredients are added to our food supply (this is crazy!).
  • What GRAS is and how food companies use it to do what they want.
  • Why there’s a weird stigma about organic foods.
  • How fast food correlates with how we live our lives.

Hippocrates, who is largely considered to be the father of modern medicine, said that, “Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease.” Hippocrates was speaking about the miraculous power of our immune system, and that’s what today’s show is all about.

Where is this mysterious immune system located? And how does it work? These are questions that I used to ponder many years ago, and it led me to realize that to understand the bigger picture, I first needed to understand the smaller picture.

Our immune systems are hyper-intelligent and, in a strange way, they are omnipotent and omnipresent in the evolution of humanity. Our immune systems are what have enabled us to adapt and move beyond all manner of diseases that could have wiped us out long ago. But, our immune system is the trainer, rehabilitator, and defender of every cell in our body. Our immune system is something to be highly praised and supported. And a great way to show thanks is to learn a little more about it.

Your immune systems is doing its job from the top of your head to the very bottom of your feet. But the heart of your immune system lives a very secret and special life that we are going to dive into today. You’ll learn a big part of how this amazing system works, plus value-packed tips to help you keep your immune system strong and healthy for a lifetime.
