How do you define greatness?

Is it the achievements you rack up? Is it the obstacles you overcome? Is it the amount of lives you impact? Is it the accolades and recognition your receive? Or is it something totally different?

My guest today knows a thing or two about greatness. He’s interviewed hundreds of the most successful people on the planet in their respective fields. He’s been able to metabolize those teachings, add pieces of it to his life, and to share some of the most incredible insights with the rest of the world.

One thing I know he’d tell you is that greatness isn’t just about the things you achieve, it’s about who you become in the process.

My guest is Lewis Howes, the creator of The School of Greatness. He’s taken this top rated podcast and turned it into a cultural phenomenon, including a bestselling book with the same name.

Lewis is here today to share his inspiring story and to teach you what it takes to live a life of greatness. This could mean that you do some of the most grandiose things imaginable, but it truly means that you start living life on your terms.

Whether it’s your health, relationships, career, or anything else. Find out how to start living a life of greatness starting now!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • How Lewis went from being a professional athlete to becoming one of the top entrepreneurs in the country.
  • Why Lewis lost his identity and what he did to overcome his greatest defeat.
  • The importance of mentors in achieving greater success.
  • Why willingness is an important attribute that most people look past.
  • Why going backwards is challenging once you’ve had a taste of something great.
  • How Lewis became a great connecter of people.
  • Why the work that you do has a huge impact on your health and well-being.
  • How Lewis was able to revive his dream of being a world champion and represent his country in international competition.
  • How a difficult heartbreak led to Lewis creating one of the biggest podcasts in the world.
  • What The School of Greatness really is and why it’s so impactful.
  • What the 8 Principles of Greatness are.
  • Why greatness starts with a vision (this is critical).

When we think about fat burning... we think about heat; we think about sweat; we think about going all out. Sure, those things synonymous with burning fat work, but what if there was another way?

I was absolutely floored when I dug into the research regarding the benefits of cold thermogenesis. Not only is cold a powerful catalyst for burning fat, but the clinically proven impact on hormone function, accelerated recovery, and anti-aging effects should be something that all of us are interested in.

This powerhouse episode details what I've learned in my research and personal experimentation over the last year. You're going to learn how, in a strange way, our genes respond favorably to temporary cold exposure. You're also going to learn how to take advantage of this in the least challenging, most beneficial ways. Check it out and make sure to share your thoughts and insights in the comments below. Are you hot for being cold? Click play, listen in, and let me know!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • What "net carbs" mean and what fiber really is.
  • How contrast showers generate more "nerve force".
  • How a Tony Robbins event sparked my interest in learning more about cryotherapy.
  • What special type of fat can actually burn body fat.
  • Where this special fat-burning fat is found on your body.
  • The 3 ways you can increase your body's good fat to burn more bad fat.
  • What the health benefits of contrast showers are.
  • Why using cold showers to decrease libido is a myth (in fact, it might do the opposite!)
  • How whole body cryotherapy works.
  • How someone is able to eat 12,000 calories a day and still be shredded.
  • The surprising impact that cold thermogenesis has on inflammation.
  • How cryotherapy reduces pain and speeds recovery.
  • Why your body produces more powerful antioxidants than any food you can find.

What sets people who are achieving phenomenal results apart from those achieving average results is usually not skill or talent. People who achieve phenomenal results tend to simply do things differently from those who don't.

It may be in how they sequence things (maybe they eat high-carb foods after working out instead of before working out for example: hint, hint), it may be how they compile information to use or teach, it may be how they work with other people, it may be the habits they have.

One of the greatest habits I've seen in talking with some of the most successful people in the world in their respective fields is that they are proactive about being in mastermind groups.

What is a mastermind group, and why are they so valuable to high achievers?

Well, the answer isn't as cut and dry as it may seem. That's why I brought on one of the most successful people I know to talk about mastermind groups, how they work on the inside, and how to get the most from them.

Once you find out these insights, you can be able to find or form mastermind groups of your own to 10X the results in pretty much any area of your life. Health, relationships, parenting, business, you name it. Instead of trying to always figure things out on your own, being a part of a mastermind gives you access to resources that you simply can't get anywhere else. Let's go!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • Why being of service and contribution is so intimately tied to your overall success.
  • What huge benefit things like listening to podcasts and going to events really hold.
  • Where the word mastermind comes from and what it actually means.
  • What a mastermind group does when they come together (this is powerful!).
  • How often mastermind groups need to meet.
  • Why transparency is so important within a mastermind.
  • Whether or not people in your mastermind should be in the same field.
  • Examples of different types of masterminds you can create.
  • What you can do to find or create your own mastermind group.
  • Why it's important to have structured criteria or a "constitution" for members of your mastermind group.
  • What incredible free tools you can use to meet up and work with your mastermind group.
  • Critical tips to help you get the most out of your mastermind sessions.

Sometimes I wonder how things that are so simple can be so powerful (and yet so overlooked). When we talk about fasting, we are talking about something that's deeply connected to the highest expression of our genes.

There are many different types of fasts, but you can actually get most of the benefits while still being able to eat everyday if you utilize one of the strategies I'm going to share with you.

The benefits of fasting are clinically proven in study after study, and they're just too good to pass up. Time to learn the facts, dispel the myths, and utilize a plan to keep you healthy for many years to come!

Today we are dealing with a major deficiency in our culture.

Sure we’re dealing with an epidemic of nutritional deficiencies… but there is an even bigger deficiency I’m talking about.

It’s a deficiency in knowing our purpose.

Statistically, people who know who they are and live with a sense of purpose outlive everyone else in the population.

Not only that, they experience far fewer chronic illnesses, far less memory loss, and more happiness in life overall.

It kind of makes sense when you think about it. Your mind and body really work on a “use it or lose it basis”. And if you are not inspired to use your body and mental faculties each day, why on earth would they be compelled to stick around?

Your purpose is literally tied to your lifeline. And today is the day to get fully connected with who you are, why you’re here, and what you’re all about.

Today’s show is loaded with insights to help you reveal what Paulo Coelho would call your own “personal legend”.

There’s actually a formula for uncovering your life’s purpose. It’s incredibly simple, but it’s only applicable if you’re ready for it.

So, if you’re ready, click play, listen with your heart, and take action on the exercises. Let’s go!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • Why you actually get to choose what your brain is made of.
  • How a sense of purpose impacts aging and development.
  • How purpose means different things to different people.
  • Why having lots of choices can become debilitating.
  • What the formula for finding your purpose is.
  • Why failure can be a huge launching pad to uncovering your purpose.
  • What important questions to ask yourself in order to flesh out your purpose.
  • How passion really ties into finding your purpose (and it’s not what you think!)
  • Why making a decision to live your purpose is often the hardest thing to do.
  • What the word decision really means and how to build your decision-making muscles.
  • Important caveats about living your purpose that involves other people (you won’t be happy without this!)
  • Why it’s CRITICAL to understand your own personal nature.

This conversation with biomechanist and award-winning writer Katy Bowman instantly changed my life.

Because I’m a very analytical person, sometimes I like to know the WHY before I jump head over heels into something.

Katy broke down exactly why movement matters so much, and how myself and many others are fooling ourselves when it comes to living an active lifestyle.

Even though I’ve been exercising for many years, and I even appeared to be fit on the outside, I was actually in the growing number of people who are classified as “actively sedentary”.

This was a serious gut check for me.

According to the research, even though exercise is awesome and incredibly good for us, it’s not tapping into our best genetic expression by a long shot.

You see, even if you work out for an hour a day, you are still only four percent more active than someone who doesn’t exercise at all! That four percent absolutely makes a difference, but when it boils down to it, one hour of activity doesn’t hold a candle to what we do the other 23 hours of the day.

I’ve made many strides over the years to combat this disparagement. Standing desk, periodic breaks for mobility work, and even the occasional walk in the middle of the work day. I knew these things made me feel better, but I also knew I would forgo them on a consistent basis because I was trying to get my work done first.

After listening to this episode again, I immediately took a nice walk. But this walk was different from any walk I’ve ever been on.

I was paying attention to things I had never noticed before. I had a real awareness of how valuable that walk was, and the small things I was doing during it that made the experience for my body even better.

What you’re about to learn from Katy today will likely change your life in an empowering way forever. These insights and tips will help you to realize some of the problems that have been hiding in plain sight, and give you the tools to break through them once and for all!

In this episode you'll discover:

  • Why consume conventional animal foods can create inflammation.
  • What a biomechanics are and how they impact to your life.
  • Why exercise and movement are not really the same thing.
  • How your environment shapes your body.
  • What nutritious movement is.
  • Why walking is equivalent to a macronutrient.
  • How your body actually adapts to things you put on your body (it’s shocking how much shoes can change you!)
  • Why just like “junk food” there is also “junk moving”.
  • What it means to be actively sedentary.
  • What cellular loads are (this is important!)
  • How killer whales in captivity can demonstrate the way our environment dictates our cellular expression.
  • How underwear can inhibit the natural function of your organs and tissues.
  • Why constantly self-regulating the temperature in your environment can prevent important muscles from developing.
  • What you can do to move your DNA and add more nutritious movement to your day.

Food matters.

Eating food is one of the most intimate things that we’ll ever experience in life. You are literally taking something from outside of yourself and deciding (consciously or unconsciously) to make it a part of you.

If we’re asleep to the real power of food, we won’t realize that every-single-thing we eat is changing every-single-cell in our bodies. Your genes, your DNA, your upwards of 100 trillion cells, are all in action to convert that chosen food into more you.

Now, here’s the real kicker of the situation…

You get to CHOOSE what you’re made out of. You can make yourself out of the most vitalizing, storied, health-giving foods in the world - or you can make yourself out of Honey Buns, Fruit Loops, Cheetos, and Skittles.

Grass-fed steak, bananas, or bagels… the choice is always up to you.

Now, that can be incredibly empowering, or incredibly scary depending on where your mindset is at.

Navigating this world of food today takes a special kind of awareness and heart. That's why we brought on our special guest today, because he’s all heart, he developed awareness through experience, and he can make you a meal that will bring tears to your eyes (like that single tear rolling down your cheek seen only in a movie scene).

Our guest today is New York Times bestselling author George Bryant (also known as the man behind Civilized Caveman Cooking). Today is going to be a real treat because the Civilized Caveman himself is here to share his story and his secrets with you.

We’re going to talk about our crucial relationship with food, overcoming eating disorders, deeply impacting the lives of others, recipes that will change your life, plus a whole lot more.

In this episode you'll discover:

  • How you can be a master in the kitchen in a lot less time than you think.
  • Why a “degree” is not the solution to helping people.
  • Why the food you make yourself and your family matters more than anything.
  • What a triggering event means in relationship to eating disorders.
  • What some of the symptoms of bulimia really are.
  • How George was able to finally overcome bulimia (this is a powerful story!)
  • Why authenticity, congruency, and vulnerability are essential to long-term success.
  • How to make S.M.A.R.T. commitments to yourself and others.
  • Why it’s important to speak up in order to gain support in our lives.
  • How our relationship with food shapes our life.
  • Why an obsession with eating healthy can also be problematic.
  • How our perception of food creates our experience of eating.
  • What some of the Civilized Caveman’s favorite recipes are (you don’t want to miss this!)

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.
  • Why every - single - step is important in getting you to your goal.
  • Why a consistent routine is crucial for success.
  • How to get more rejuvenative sleep in less time each night.
  • How to create real consistency in your life.
  • Why self-honesty is important for your growth.
  • What Eric does to maintain his power and energy (many of these things will sounds strangely familiar!)
  • How your story controls your life (and how you can change it!)

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.
