Your Health Is Not Shameful

YOU NEED TO TALK TO SOMEBODY. So many of us (especially men) are afraid to open up about what we’re going through. We often don’t even tell the people who are closest to us. For whatever reason, we think we have to suffer alone. But there is freedom in sharing your struggles. Whether it’s depression, low self-esteem, or something like erectile dysfunction, you need to be able to tell your doctor. For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with Bill Phillips where he talked about the importance of getting help for depression and other problems. Bill is the former Editor-In-Chief of Men’s Health Magazine and the author of The Better Man Project. Learn how to talk to your doctor and confront your health issues in Episode 888.

The 5 Second Rule To Change Your Life with Mel Robbins

OUR THOUGHTS ARE DREAM KILLERS. The bigger the dream, the more fear you’re going to have. But to grow, you have to take on new challenges. It’s a real catch-22. I’m very curious about fear and self-doubt. In fact, I’m writing a book about it. In this new year, I want to challenge you to change the way you think about the things that scare you. I want you to start embracing difficult situations and stop letting yourself get in your way. Once you do, nothing will stop you. So how can we harness our thoughts so they start to work for us and not against us? On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I’m re-sharing a previous episode about facing fears with the creator of the “Five Second Rule:” Mel Robbins. Mel Robbins is the most booked female speaker on the planet with a 7 figure speaking business. Oh yeah, she’s also a bestselling author, a former criminal defense attorney, a CNN commentator, happily married for 20 years, and a mom of 3 kids. But what I really fell in lo...

Lewis’ Biggest Lessons and Regrets of 2019

DECLARE YOUR VISION. The end of the year is time to reflect on where you’ve been and where you’re going. I’m using this episode to share my biggest lessons and regrets from 2019. One of the most significant changes for me this year was in my romantic life. I went from being in a relationship that wasn’t working to being with someone who is a force multiplier in my life. I had to be aware of my relationship patterns to break them. Are you taking the time to investigate your past and envision your future? Or are you just going to work and coming home and putting on Netflix? It’s time to wake up to your dreams.

Lewis’ Biggest Lessons and Regrets of 2019

The Power of Counterbalance

IT’S NEVER GOING TO BE PERFECT. We all have this vision of the ideal life. We work hard and get everything done. All of our relationships are in great shape. We take time to exercise and eat right. But the truth is, there is no magical destination. And even if we reach that place, it could all be destroyed in an instant by one of life’s famous curveballs. Instead of looking at balance like a happily ever after, look at it as something you constantly need to reevaluate and adjust. For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with Jay Papasan where he shared his philosophy of counterbalance. Jay Papasan is the co-author of The One Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results. He wants you to be purposeful about the way you spend your time. Learn how to tackle the myth of work/life balance in Episode 885. In This Episode You Will Learn: About work/life balance and if it’s possible (02:00) Why balance is a verb, not a noun (02:30) How to counterb...

The Power of Counterbalance

Successful Women Leaders on Mental Toughness and Building Confidence

USE YOUR PAIN AS AN ARROW. None of us like to feel unpleasant emotions. Whether it’s pain, anxiety, or stress, we numb them with food, alcohol, and overscheduling. But there’s a lot we can learn from discomfort. Instead of drowning your feelings, get curious about them. Your envy can lead you to your passion. Your anxiety can show you your authentic self. And your pain might be asking you to comfort something in your past that is keeping you from your future. Unless we embrace where we’re from, we’ll never get where we’re going. On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk with some of the most inspirational women on the planet: Elizabeth Gilbert, Rachel Hollis, Sarah Blakely, Glennon Doyle, Mel Robbins, and Lisa Nichols. Elizabeth Gilbert is the author of Eat, Pray, Love. Rachel Hollis is the bestselling author of Girl, Wash Your Face. Sarah Blakely is the founder and CEO of the massively popular women’s apparel brand SPANX. Mel Robbins is the author of the 5-Second...

5 Ways To Monetize Your Personal Brand with Rory Vaden

IS YOUR PERSONAL BRAND MAKING YOU MONEY OR COSTING YOU TIME? The last time Rory Vaden joined the show, he shared some strategies we could use to create influential personal brands — insight that helped me shift the focus of my business and scale it to the next level. We hear a lot more talk about personal brands today than we did even just a year or two ago, but I still don’t think people are acting seriously enough when it comes to establishing, scaling, or monetizing their brands. I am not exaggerating when I say there is no way I would be where I am today, personally or professionally, if I hadn’t started getting strategic and intentional about branding over 10 years ago. And, as time goes on, personal branding is only getting more important — for all of us. Luckily, things are a lot easier for us today than they were for me back then. There are hundreds of successful personal brands you can model, online marketing tools are only getting more accessible and easier to use, and...

5 Ways To Monetize Your Personal Brand with Rory Vaden

Own Your Pain

YOU CAN’T DISMISS PAIN. So many of us try to cover up our pain. We eat too much, buy too much, and drink too much in order to not feel anything. I used to avoid my feelings. I didn’t have the tools to process heartache and loss so I found another outlet: inflicting pain on the football field. But pain doesn’t just disappear- it will find another way of coming to the surface. For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with Brene Brown where she explained how hate is just a mask for pain. Dr. Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Brené Brown Endowed Chair at The Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past fourteen years studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy and is the author of three #1 New York Times bestsellers – The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, and Rising Strong. If you look at the world today, people are pointing fingers looking for someone to blame so they don...

Own Your Pain

Embrace the Future and Find Your Massively Transformative Purpose with Peter Diamandis

WE FEAR WHAT WE DON’T UNDERSTAND. The future doesn’t have to be scary. You don’t have to put your energy into building bunkers, hiding gold bars in the ground, and preparing for the end. The future can be full of possibility. There are so many exciting advancements happening in the fields of science, health, and space. But you have to change your mindset from fear to positivity. The world is magic. On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about the future of health and technology with a transformative leader and visionary: Peter Diamandis. Recently named by Fortune as one of the “World’s 50 Greatest Leaders,” Peter H. Diamandis is the founder and executive chairman of the XPRIZE Foundation, which leads the world in designing and operating large-scale incentive competitions. He is also the executive founder of Singularity University, a graduate-level Silicon Valley institution that counsels the world's leaders on exponentially growing technologies. Peter repeats h...

Tulsi Gabbard on Running for President and Service Based Leadership

SUFFERING COMES FROM SELF-OBSESSIVE THINKING. I used to be terrified to speak in public. I’d get nervous before getting in front of any kind of group. But then I trained in meditation and learned to switch my mindset. Instead of being so focused on me, I focused on being of service. Now, I love getting in front of a crowd. Once you connect to a purpose that is bigger than yourself, you can overcome the obstacles holding you back. On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about the value of coming from a place of faith and service with a Democratic presidential hopeful: Tulsi Gabbard. Tulsi Gabbard is the first female combat veteran to ever run for president and the first female combat veteran ever elected to Congress, along with Tammy Duckworth. She has served for seven years on the Foreign Affairs, Armed Services, and Homeland Security Committees, where she's been intimately involved with sensitive, national security issues. Tulsi is an introvert who had to push herse...

Money as a Tool For Happiness

MONEY IS A GREAT SERVANT BUT A BAD MASTER. Money can get a bad rap. You hear stories of people who worked so hard to get it, and it left them feeling unhappy. Some people even call it the root of all evil. But what if you used money as a tool for happiness? If you spend it wisely, it can help you have better health, better relationships, and more time for the things that fill you up. Instead of making money the problem, make it work for you. For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with Gretchen Rubin where she talked about her research on happiness and money. She says that happiness, like money, should be something we observe in the good times and the bad. Learn how to improve your relationship with happiness in Episode 879. In This Episode You Will Learn: Why you need to think about happiness in the good times and the bad (2:00) How money relates to happiness (03:00) The difference between buying things and experiences (3:30) If you enjoyed this episode, check...
