They dive into several fascinating topics, such as motivation, setting goals and being the best you can be every single day, year and month. “Every year, scientists create these telescopes and they look out into space. One of the biggest things that they realize, no matter how powerful they make these telescopes, they realize one simple thing. There's more space.

Fear is something that all of us deal with in our lives, at some point in time. However, the question is: how can we use it to energize us and not debilitate us? Sean Johnson sits down with Joe Gianni, President and CEO of 2logical, to discuss fear and how it can lead us to success if we use it the right way. Fear is often viewed as a very complex concept, when in fact, it is quite simple. There are two main ways that people handle fear: they either let it energize them, or they let it debilitate them. Energizers of fear use it to help them grow and push them to reach outside of their comfort zone. People who let fear debilitate them use fear as a way to stop any sort of progress and are likely to stay in the same exact place, where they are comfortable!

This week on The Motivational Intelligence Podcast, Sean Johnson and John Casey are discussing New Year’s resolutions and why they are seemingly impossible to stick to. For a lot of people, it seems like coming up with the resolution is much easier than actually putting it into action! Sean and John discuss common issues that prevent people from moving forward with their resolutions and what can be done to stop the vicious cycle of no change. Studies show that only 12% of people actually stick to their resolutions, meaning 88% of people just can’t figure it out. There are ten main reasons why people don’t stick to their resolutions. Want to learn what those reasons are and how you can be a part of the 12%? Check out “Ep 28- New Year’s Resolutions: The Top 10 Reasons They Fail” and let us know what you think!

This week on The Motivational Intelligence Podcast, Sean Johnson and John Casey take a deep dive into gratitude and all of the happiness it brings. Successful people are often very happy people, but why is that? It is likely that they are practicing gratitude daily. While gratitude is mentioned very frequently during this time of year, many studies and research show that making a daily habit of practicing gratitude can be a completely life-changing experience. Even something as simple as keeping a “Gratitude Journal” where your write down everything you are grateful for each day can reduce negative feelings and change your mindset.

Jenn Andrews: How a Woman with One Leg Inspired the World to Move!
This week on The Motivational Intelligence Podcast, we have a very special guest named Jennifer Andrews. Born in Englewood, NJ, she is a former corporate sales executive turned health and wellness coach. Jenn's world was turned upside down after discovering a lump on her foot while getting a pedicure, leading her to being diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer called sarcoma.
The week before her surgery, she recorded a Facebook live video that unintentionally went viral, as she requested others to appreciate their mobility and to MOVE in their favorite form of exercise on her surgery date. In the video, Jenn said, “Mobility is a gift and it's something that a lot of us take for granted because it's something that we're born with,” Jenn’s video quickly went viral, so much so, that #moveforjenn was trending on several different social media platforms. This video lead to a movement. Watch the full video here!
That was just the beginning of Jenn’s impact on the world. After losing her right foot in March of 2018 and adapting to life as an active amputee, she quickly learned that activewear prosthetics were not covered by insurance. She and her husband, Miles started thinking about all of the cancer survivors who were not leading active lives because of this expense. This gap between what is “covered” as a benefit and what is left as an out of pocket expense had to be filled. Jenn and Miles made this their mission with the Move for Jenn Foundation. Their focus is to grant funds for activewear prosthetics to cancer survivors and sarcoma research.
The mission of the Move For Jenn Foundation is to offer grants to sarcoma researchers and those who have suffered the loss of a limb to sarcoma or other affiliated diseases. The foundation’s goal is to raise awareness through fundraising events, while also helping amputees afford or obtain an active-wear prosthetic, allowing them to regain strength and mobility faster, getting them back to the physical activities they enjoyed prior to amputation.
Jenn resides in Charlotte, North Carolina with her husband, two kids and three dogs. She is a two time sarcoma survivor and amputee and her story is incredibly inspiring. This is definitely an episode you don't want to miss! Listen to episode 26, “Jennifer Andrews - How a Woman With One Leg Inspired The World to Move”
