43: Find & Own Your Voice | Sahar Paz
Links: https://www.instagram.com/saharpaz/?hl=en https://www.ownyourvoice.org  http://www.saharpaz.com/ https://findyourvoice.lpages.co/intro-course/ Show Notes: Sahar's Background Cognitive behavior and emotional intelligence Our brain needs pen on paper journaling Streams of consciousness. When you're so aware and analytical, you got to get out of your head Black and white bob -  think all or nothing What Sahar means by one's voice Our brain mapping happens 2x: when we're 7 and then again at 16 Listen to the voice that is most authentic to you How to constructively listen to oneself Feelings won't lie. Finding all the voices and understanding which one is yours; you'll feel it on a gut level. What was happening to you in your first 7 years? Your teenage years? What was your identity? Is it true      to who you are today? Are there some patterns that need unlearning? Listening What feelings are you wanting to feel? On your way to that feeling, what are you trying out? What do you think you 'should' be doing? The feeling is the target and the activities are what make that feeling true for me Meditation and Affirmations The moment after affirmations and the positive side of negative emotions Pay attention to what your voice is disagreeing  Pessimism prepares you; Sadness shows you you poor love into details; Anger shows you how important something is to you Process emotions, otherwise we get stuck What is the purpose of this emotion? Acceptance happens by acknowledging, seeing the positive side, repetition and compassion. It's not being a victim Granular with goals and affirmations "I will" to let brain know I am in action now Don't get caught up in narrative of rebuttal Listening - an act of self awareness. self regulation - regulating what you're going to act on. Named all the voices and decide what to do with them. Listening gives you a choice. Sahar's morning preparation - breathing, smiling, grounding Sahar's gift : What you say can impact the world

On today's episode Rabbi Wolf : 1. Rabbi Wolf's background and introduction to jewish spirituality, positive psychology, and more. His dream of sharing with people the merging of positive psychology with Jewish spiritual teachings 2. The expansion of our heart and keeping the body healthy Eastern practices may well be important to understand body. In Judaism, the approach to wellness and healing is not just the technology of      the body, but also the aptitudes of the soul to be able to express through the soul and body, so it uses the Sefirot 3. The Rebbe's influence on his life  Story of the Rebbe giving a discourse and before giving it transcending worlds Superhuman and ephemeral aspects The Rebbe knew your destiny and your soul 4.  Jewish teachings on free will  We can overcome all three Primary influences that psychology maintains - genes, environment and culture, and modeling from parents/home environment Jewish teachings that our genes do not dictate our life. We have 100% free will to be able to override our genetic predisposition. We can become whoever we choose to become 5.  The 10 sefirot  3 are expressed in the mind 7 are expressed through emotions We have this model as a analogue of the cosmos as a whole - it flows through every aspect of      creation The human is only the finite projection of the sefirot Nonlinear and central executive default mode networks 6. The 4 worlds we live in and can we know if were in the others and meditation The realm were in consciously is one of time and space. The higher realms have no time nor space Praying - enunciating energies as sounds and the sounds are containers for the flow of our mind and emotion.

38: How I let go and followed what was calling me | My story with ITN
At the beginning of August I was on The Institute of Transformational Nutrition's IG live talking with one of the success coaches, Kylee. It was an honor to be highlighted as one of their student success stories just as I was finishing up the certification, which I fully finished in 2 days after the call. The coaches there played a great role in supporting me as I was just starting out with the certification, I even had one of them, Mindy, as a previous guest on my podcast. It was really meaningful to speak with them months later after making the leap to take the course and now finishing it up. I wanted to share it with you today not to promote the certification or tell anyone anything, but to share a story in my life where I really struggled. I truly felt scared about making a decision that would change the way I look at life and the direction I would take my life. I hope by listening to how I went from letting go of what I truly felt no longer served me, to following what I knew was calling me you can connect with what's calling you. We all connect at a point of struggle and listening to myself was one. Now, one year later of taking that jump I truly feel more in tune with my inner voice. If you'd like to checkout more details of this story on ITN's student success blog and a link to a blog I wrote on empowerment: https://blog.transformationalnutrition.com/solomon-berezin/ https://blog.transformationalnutrition.com/inner-voice/

34: The Big Leap, Upper Limit Problems, and Discovering your Personal Genius | Dr. Gay Hendricks
Show Notes: Background and what spurted Dr. Hendrick's interest in psychology and personal development The Big  Leap, which is about 2 things:  How to overcome the Upper Limit problem: our tendency to sabotage ourselves when we get to a certain point How to discover your own personal genius  Why we need to learn how to  handle upper limit problems The ways an ULP can show up -  arguments, accidents, illness, worry thoughts  The 7 step process of transforming a worry into something positive in The Big Leap Interrupt the negative thought pattern  Influence compared to control The Joy of Genius We're not really in control of our thoughts. Most of us are trying to control our thoughts ineffectively, when what we need to do is let go and implant a better quality thought. How Gay manifested a perfect relationship with his "Absolute Yesses" and said to the Universe "he'll never settle for less" Think of a thought like a balloon attached to a string and the sting is attached to some emotion. You notice it and get underneath that and feel it in your body. Rather than changing it from the level of the mind, go down the string to what it's attached to. Most are attached to anger, sadness, fear. Permission to feel the emotion. How to embody and feel your emotions. Integrity with ourselves and being able to express them  "Fear is excitement without the breath" - Fritz Perls Peace of mind can only be attained through total participation. wholebody/wholehearted acceptance of it Dr. Hendrick's moment of awakening when he was 24 that led him to "do whatever it takes to feel [bliss] all the time" How Gay met Ramdas and whathe told Gay : "don't worry something will come to you" How can I get ____ ? And instead of answering it, celebrate the question How can I express my true genius in such a way that it brings rewards to me and everyone around me? What is it I most love to do? What do I do that when I'm doing it I lose track of time? Own time rather than be the victim of time. "Life is what's going on while you're making other plans." Journey from head to heart Wonder! Breath. Move. Love Gay's USM and morning routine       The organic process of life Doing more of what you most love to do. In your 20s your job is to experiment, in your 30s your job is to really find what you love to do, your 40s is about building your life, 50s and 60s are about coming into full integrity Gay's gift to open up to your true genius. You're there when you have a full body sensation of serene delight.

26: Novel Training and what training matters most for you | Coach John Wolf
On today's episode Coach John Wolf and I talk about:  John Wolf (@coachjohnwolf) and Onnit : https://www.onnit.com/academy/meet-john-wolf/  https://www.onnit.com/ Life's about constantly shifting your focus towards what matters most at that time More than strength, but enduring strength. Your ability to endure and still call a strength in times of less than ideal circumstances Its largely about listening to your self. You can defer all the decision making. You can't do that selectively when you choose a coach. Make a choice and then you can defer. What's great about that is that you chose. You made an educated choice. Studies are going to say what they're designed to say most of the time. Take studies with an n=1, you. Create time and space to assess your training and you as a human being.  Doesn't matter to what studies say, it matters how you respond to the practice If you're chasing  what's cool you're missing the boat. It total human optimization - you're the human.  Taking studies with a grain of salt and filtered through your own lens  In the future, Onnit may have a program similar to a create your own program Onnit 6 is a more holistic approach to training. novel stimuli. If you do the same thing for 6 months you're not adapting. It doesn't mean you do everything different all the time for the sake of novelty, but we can find new ways to compliment the original goal. We are sometimes too focused on muscle. There are a variety of tissue that need to work harmoniously for our body to function well. The human experience is largely an emotional one and perception is reality. Trust through meaningful communication Psychology trumps physiology Daily rituals and starting with intention Smile everyday - everything is about perception. All about the attitude of gratitude. Be grateful for the opportunity to overcome the challenge. It's not going to change whether or not the reality is there, but it's going to change your experience in that reality. The sooner you can make a perception shift, the better. Let's fail forward and fail fast Forgiveness  How can I apply what it is I am choosing to take in today?

My results and how it works based on resonances  2. What goes into the machine and how does it work? 3. How can it be used to help recover from injuries or illnesses? It is a cooperative component with healing but it does not diagnosis   “Nu|Vision visualizes resonances between these holographic tokens, resulting in analytical insights. A Swiss psychologist named Carl Gustav Jung coined the word “synchronicity” to describe the experience of events that are apparently casually unrelated, yet occur together in a meaningful manner.  Synchronistic events reveal an underlying pattern, a conceptual framework that encompasses, but is larger than any of the systems that display the synchronicity. Following discussions with both Albert Einstein and Wolfgang Pauli, Carl Jung believed that there were parallels between synchronicity and aspects of relativity theory and quantum mechanics.  Synchronicity is perceived as being a law of attraction in a higher-dimensional space, but is actually caused by convergence in the lower-dimensional reference system.” · This machine, based on resonances from my blood type, my name, where I was born, and the hospital I was born in revealed that I need healing with friends, healing, and integrating shadow cells… And really revealed some personal stuff that has been going on in my life over the past couple years.  What all does it reveal because it also offered nutritional options for me? · Polarity (division) issue  · It showed that I resonated with weak muscles in my neck and shoulders, so she connected me with holistic chiropractor Dr. Marmostein, I emailed him, a busy dr, and the next day he called me, got me in, and in 1 visit helped me reduce some lingering symptoms · What all can these results help someone looking to make some changes do?  · What is C60 and why might it be better taken than other supplements? o I started using it On December 30 and just got to the bottom of the bottle. I did not research extensively, but found that after a week or 2 I was feeling a bit more energized and more control of the lingering symptoms from the concussion. o Studies show: The effects of C60-olive oil solutions in an experimental model of CCl4 intoxication in rat strongly suggest that the effect on lifespan is mainly due to the attenuation of age-associated increases in oxidative stress.  o Antioxidant qualities o C60 is one of the top 5 antioxidants you should be taking · WebMD defines them as substances that “protect the body from damage caused by harmful molecules called free radicals. Many experts believe this damage is a factor in the development of blood vessel disease (atherosclerosis), cancer, and other conditions.” Gwen's advice to her 22 year old self and her gift to share with the world.

23: Crisis Precedes Transformation | Dr. Dan Engle
Dr. Engle is board certified in psychiatry and neurology, and he owns a clinical practice that combines functional medicine, integrative psychiatry,  neuro-cognitive restoration, and peak performance methods. He is the author of the Concussion Repair Manual (launched October 17, 2017), which has been very helpful in offering natural and technological recovery methods and techniques. He was on the first episodes of my favorite leaders – Aubrey Marcus and Onnit, Tim Ferris, Calvin Banister 1.  Story of his breaking of the cosmic egg at same age I did (21) and where the origins of cosmic egg comes from  “Not till we are lost… do we begin to find ourselves.” – Henry David Thoreau  I loved what he said about it on Adventures in Brain Injuryand, “It is a releasing of what we thought we knew and opening up to what can now be perceived with new, fresh eyes.” How can I see myself in the world differently? How can I release my programming and back into my child-like curiosity? 2. The biggest challenges are our biggest teachers. “Crisis precedes Transformation” 3. Head injuries even more so, because if the brain is off, everything else is off. Takes us into Hero’s Journey. a. Hard for us to organize our life and objectively see if the things we do for healing are working or not, memory, attention, concentration, sleep. b. If we orient it as a potential healing force, we can develop ourselves even more! 4. “We must let go of the life we planned so as to accept the one that’s waiting for us” Joseph Campbell  5. The psychological and physical symptoms from concussions a. An invisible challenge. We need to own what happened and our own process. b. Ownership: Know how to engage the brain in therapeutic rehabilitative exercises and the technologies that support neuroplasticity and synaptogenesis 6. Rekindle faith that healing is possible and put practices into action  7. Alleviating lingering symptoms  a. The same technologies that heal the brain are the same ones that optimize the brain Follow Dr. Engle on his website https://drdanengle.com or on IG @drdanengle

 “When your mind, body, and spirit are in harmony, you can achieve whatever you want in life!”  On today's show, Kirby Chenkin and I talk about: Wim Hoff Breathing Kirbe and I went to school in Dallas and connected at a local Chabad Fitness and Wellness movement How eastern healing methods compliment with Torah and Judaism  A lot of originates from the Torah Inspiration behind KirBeBetter brand Tip of Tuesday’s  Aligning with truest version of self What are your most important values?  Kirbe’s top values are health and wellness, entrepreneurship, and self-improvement. Out of which he started Kirbebetter. Where the name KirBeBetter comes from. The KBB are the initials of his grandmother who passed from Alzheimer’s A percentage of all proceeds that are generated from the KirBeBetter movement will go to support Alzheimer’s disease. The spark that led him to determine his values and eliminate what was not important to who he was destined to be. Having a growth mindset, but also being content with where you are right now. Meditation helps him balance of future-focused and presently satisfied  “Blissfully dissatisfied” by Ed Mylett A Rabbi at Chabad at Crown Heights 770 told Kirby – No matter what you achieve in life or how successful you are, whether you’re 90 years old you have to always feel like you’re just a baby with your achievements. In your mind you have to think like you’re just a kid with how much you have achieved. And, Human potential is infinite. Great people like the Rebbe or Albert Einstein have proven that if you align with your highest values and do what you love, that you can do whatever you set your mind to. Vipassana meditation 10 day retreat he went to in Dallas to get away from distractions and disconnect. Technique is to observe things as they are and not reacting.

Episode 19: Why You Should Unplug | Tanya Schevitz from Reboot
Ever struggle with taking the time to unplug from your phone? I got a solution for you that you can join in on.  March 1-2,  2019 is the #DayofUnplugging Reboot is an incubator of Jewish arts and culture. It is an innovative non-profit that challenges what Jewish is. They reimagine Jewish traditions and rituals for the 21st century to help people create their own Jewish life.  What the National Day of Unplugging in? How Dan Rollman started the Sabbath Manifesto. Resting starts with putting away our technology Celebrities like Katy Katie Couric, Ariana Huffington, and Richard Branson are practicing #unplugging Power of Unplugging, time to rest. We all crave, but it’s hard to do. We have to consciously make this decision. The 10 Principles of the Sabbath Manifesto (link at bottom)  Take them and apply them in a way that fits you. Tanya tries to implement in daily with her family for an unplugged dinner to rest and reconnect.  Why it’s also important to consistently unplug.  Her Tea Time she implements to reclaim connection – like a quick game, a puzzle, or conversation. How kids really crave connection with their parents. It’s so easy to just let others work on their phones, so we need to really make an effort to connect. Tips for those who’d like to disconnect to connect: 1. State things in an I way not a you way 2. Bring it up in a conversation  3. Take responsibility  How to start a group for the day of unplugging Come up with things to do because if you don’t prepare yourself you’ll feel lonely, have FOMO. For example, if you plan a hike or a painting class with friends you can choose to unplug together in advance. Phantom Phone feeling we all have where we feel like our phone is vibrating in our pants when we don’t have it on us. Cell-phone sleeping bags to physically put phones away. Studies behind why having phones out, even if not used, distracts the conversation. “A person's success in life can usually be measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations he or she is willing to have.” – Tim Ferriss What do you Unplug for_______ This campaign is to get people to think about all the things they can do when they unplug. There are a ton of things we love to do unplugged, but we just don’t always think about it. What do you enjoy doing without your device?  Tanya and The Sabbath Movement’s Gift to give people back their time, bodies, and connections. In other words, the power to take our lives back and be mindful of our use of technology. A way for more people who didn’t think they could do Shabbat to observe Shabbat.

Episode 18 Healing the world 1 conversation at a time with Ezra Mitchell from Mindvalley
Welcome to the show!!  My Favorite quotes from the episode: · “Our possibility is only limited by what we believe ourselves, not anything or anyone else”  · “I can have $2 in my bank, but I can still have an abundant mindset” or “I could have $1 million and have a scarcity mindset” · Your current situation is changing every second.

Unfortunately, I could not fit the whole show notes: · How Ezra started his personal journey with $3000 and a belief that he’s going to make it work · The serendipitous events that led him to his role at Mindvalley · Limiting beliefs we were conditioned to have and how to change them · How we were raised by an unconscious society and we must not ignore our emotions · Abundance mindset · What it’s like working at Mindvalley and with Vishen Lakhiani · Self-love and healing · Being committed to your journey and aware of omens  Links: Ezra’s personal website: http://ezramitchell.com/ Ezra’s Mindvalley Video Cover Letter https://youtu.be/h1zV37MqUaI Mindvalley’s website: https://www.mindvalley.com/

Episode 16: Astronomy, Consciousness, and Listening with Dr. Olenick
Ya wanna meet someone outta this world? Say hello to my college Astronomy Professor, Dr. Richard Olenick. Also, spring classes are starting up today so if you are taking Astronomy, or any of Dr. O's classes, maybe you can get extra credit for listening. Here's what we talk about today: How can astronomy help us with our daily life?  Do we matter in the universe? What would happen if we were gone? His conclusion: we may be inconsequential to the universe because it’s so big, and, for example, we have no control how planets move, but the thing was that we are not insignificant because we have minds that can grasp this stuff. Humans are so amazing, that we have found out so much. Never Give Up! You do have something there, our mind. We should work with it, develop our mind, be as rational as we can. That’s how we are important (in a sense).  Rational in a sense of understanding things. Search not just in a surface level, but curiosity. Imagination is more powerful than logic. Do you think to notice other beings and things is to look further outward, or just raise our consciousness? “To see a world in a grain of sand And a heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand And eternity in an hour” - William Blake Latest theory is that theres a parallel universe that has time going backwards (woahhhh) The real definition of time is an instant A piece of advice to someone getting into astronomy and/or increasing consciousness:  Read books like, “A brief history of time,” “Dragons egg”  Get a telescope or go to an observatory  Best places to go are around 30 miles from the city… Generally away from large cities Aurora lights in Alaska or Iceland!  spaceweather.com has pictures of auroras  Blue marble experiment [19 min] December 28, 1968 was the 50th anniversary of Apollo 8 which went around the moon.  In terms of raising consciousness, we should all be friends in a way, we are all one.  We are caregivers of earth, not the owners Drake equation that predicts the probability of intelligent life elsewhere. Surprisingly, it predicted that the chance we are alone in the galaxy ranges from 56-86 % that we are alone. In the whole universe, it was more like 29-56% that we are alone.  Could earth be the center in the whole universe? Yes and no because everything came out of the center, we are all one. It came out of energy. There is no center for the universe How is it that he channels the passion to class everyday?  Reading something new about it everyday, being a life long learner. To be curious and keep looking into things. Reflecting on things more gets him going! He wants others to explore these things and find out what they’re passionate about. How old do you feel mentally inside?  How to avoid burnout? [30 min]  To do something different. We all like to grow, see change. Frees the mind to not think!  What would you recommend someone recently out of college? Buy an alarm clock to be on time.  Record your grandparents. Have them talk about their childhood. Don’t give up hope about finding your passion Don’t be so hard or critical on yourself. Step away and focus on the good things. What is his gift to share with the world ?  Always listen to everyone, because you can learn something from everyone, even someone you didn’t think you could. Be observant and listen to people, you can get insights to things you didn’t think was possible.  Listen to people when they’re in front of you. Email him olenick@udallas.edu for more!

Episode 14: Bringing More Awareness to our Bodies with Jeneesa Jackson
I was on a Massage-high during this recording.  “The real purpose of giving a massage is to foster more depth of feeling for one another in order to bring out the love that often lies buried beneath the pain of everyday suffering.” -Robert Calvert Welcome Jeneesa! Here's what we talk about today: Jeneesa helped me with recovering and feeling good Healing people through massage How’d she get into it [1:30] Top massage school in Utah craniosacral, kinesiology, energy-healing modalities She specializes in [3:10] Structural integration  - child of rolfing. Focuses on Alignment of the body. Wherever the tissue is short you want to stretch it out  because that’s pulling the body to one side or forward. Also focuses on facial planes.  Energy work she intuitively incorporates How in-tune does someone need to be to acknowledge they are tight? [5:40] One of purposes of massage therapy is that it creates awareness in the body. The body naturally wants to heal itself and her job is to get rid of the things in the body that want to stop that. Our bodies are our best teachers, they give us our signs. Why holistic practices are very important. Let ourselves to feel what we feel. If we hold on to stresses it will build up into our tissues. That’s why massage helps heal on an emotional and spiritual level because when we work out physically whatever’s hurting in our muscle tissues, we are also releasing something we held on to and have not let go of. On a maintenance, everyone could use a 90 minute massage a month Cronic issues would be best 1-2x a week Bob Hope from the Price is Right got one every day and he lived to around 90! On a scientific level it stimulates your lymphatic system, which is what detoxes toxins. One reason why she loves cupping massages. Helps with skeletal system. If muscles around the skeletal system are tight, they are pulling the bones out of place, so its good to loosen those up so you can stay in alignment. Our fascias produce our bodies natural anti-inflammatory chemical, so stripping the fascia back into place can help release this. Benefits of essential oils during massage: She uses depending on how people feel. Peppermint for headaches and uplifting with energy Eucalyptus opens sinus  Frankincense is a negative energy cleanser Lime is a cleanser and uplifting and refreshing ‘Love’ blend sweet orange, ying yang, bergamot, amarice  Spearmint and eucalyptus lotion, grape-seed oil is a natural skin tightener and has many vitamins.  What she learned on her a 3 month abroad trip!  Healers must take care of themselves because it can effect the people they work with.  Her gift she wishes to share with the world is: She likes to give hope and faith that we can overcome pain and enjoy our life and be happy. Not to give up because we will  always be on a rollercoaster, if you keep fighting for happiness you can see the light! Seek after help so we can all serve each other! @jeneesa_jackson on IG jeneesajackson@hotmail.com

Episode 13: Health Benefits of Shabbat Rest
Taking time to disconnect from our technology is relevant now more than ever! That's why today I share a conversation with Rabbi Schmukler about Shabbat, its origins, its health benefits, its components, and more! origins and health benefits and why today it is more necessary than ever Origins [5min] Idea that G-d created the world and Torah starts with 6 days of creation and 7th day for rest Why start with that story?  > Purpose is not to fill in our curiosity about how things came about but to teach us We are here for a purpose Gift of Shabbat  Yes 6 days of working but reason is to rest on 7th ME: How do we decide what is allowed on Shabbat? Rabbi: In ancient times people wouldn’t farm. Shabbat has 2 components = Shamor (to keep) and Zahor (to remember) 10 Commandments is shown 2x in the Torah, once mentioning Shamor and the other Zahor Sages teach that both are essential Through things we do and don’t do we connect with source Anything we want to achieve consists of things we do and don’t do in order to achieve it and make it meaningful dieting, career, marriage, etc. Key Components to Shabbat - how does somebody start observing? > Practical advice start with your entry point… the place most attractive place for you > For example, A Friday night meal, lighting candles, make a blessing over wine and bread > Spiritual properties.  Start with an entry point and expand from there WeWork video Adam Neuman https://youtu.be/-4vTTmUByfk       >Had trouble with his ego >his rabbi suggested he observe Shabbat Why is it that by taking this day for rest that we can connect ? > Shabbat is so multi layered > Its more than taking a day off. Once you bite into it, it doesn’t matter what’s happening in your week, but when it comes and you stop working > There’s something bigger than you that you commit to. It creates a genuine island of calm and quiet Whatever you were doing is not a life-threatening emergency, which is why if it is life threatening you SHOULD take care of it…It’s actually permitted on shabbat You’re out of news, tech, etc and instead are into family, self, friends, spirituality, community  That’s a spirit of shabbat in a simple way Studies that show Having the time to reflect and how to improve and get closer to family [16 min] Taking a step away can promote Creativity Mind get’s clearer and refreshed Its a GIFT not an obligation [17:50]  Spiritual Connection [19:30] > Big opening allows a certain sunlight (your soul) to shine through A few health benefits of powering down from an article I read Stillness and quiet of shabbat From a jewish mystical perspective in a nutshell  > 6 spiritual attributes of the soul that 6 days represent > 7th receives what the 6 produce or radiate Why is it more important now than ever [23:40] >People once thought that it was hard when we had to physically labor so hard > Now that we can sit on the couch and not have to, things are easier, etc. we think ‘who needs it’ HOWEVER, this shows difference of divine and human wisdom > Divine wisdom is always applicable, it’s eternal for any time > Shabbat provided rest for the laborer > Now that our idea of labor changed (we can work from our phone)… the eternal rules still apply today - to technology for example > On avg we look at our phones 6x a minute! Routine/ Set up for Shabbat [26:20] Shabbat is experienced on multiple levels - observing on each of multiple levels - body, mind, soul Body - bigger meals with family, resting, physically enjoyable things,  Mind

Episode 11: Pathways to Success with Julian Placino
I believe some of our goal setting is mistaken. While we are taught to go for goals that focus on money and career, there are better goals that speak to our hearts, that come from within. My guest today emulates this idea. Rather than setting the goal of earning x amount of $ selling real estate, he asked himself “what would it look like if I was to create something that I truly loved and didn’t worry about making money?” By asking ourselves this question I believe we open ourselves up to more opportunities and to what really excites us. Look at your life like a smoothie and the combination of fruits and veggies make up the smoothie of the life that is you. Blended together is a unique individual product only created by you with all the things you’re interested in. As a multipotentialite, your combination becomes your specialty. This is why I call Julian Placino is a multipotentialite I met Julian while helping out at a Young leaders for Education event last year at SMU. Currently he is a senior recruiting and staffing professional paid keynote speaker recruiting lead for bottle rocket studios - a premier mobile developer in the world training entrepreneur where he offers professional development sales and recruiters in the staffing industry and the host of the Pathways to success podcast, where he interviews various leaders on their journeys to success A couple highlights on today’s episode: If you center your life around G-d first everything flows into place. What you naturally do well, what you enjoy doing, and what helps other people Find someone that is doing what he wanted to do Go try something in that field, talk to others in that field, take 1 step at a time towards something you love.

Harnessing a holistic lifestyle with Howard Bowens III
When I got truly honest with myself and asked myself what it is about basketball that I really am passionate about, the answer I received was about the flow and being in the zone. Rather than just in the game, but in life. I became aware that the training from basketball was so intense that my body and mind became intense. I was very ENTHUSIASTIC (I know I said reluctant lol) when Howard Bowens described a similar experience he had with Football. It was from his own self-awareness that the training he was doing was making him intense. He realized that it was affecting him and so he made a remarkable change to get into holistic training and lifestyle. Today, Howard Bowens helps his clients, who are also his closest friends, harness their own healthy and happy lifestyles. If you are interested in cultivating a healthier lifestyle and connect with your spirituality through a healthy lifestyle, listening to Howard Bowens might offer some help. It was a pleasure for me to be able to reach out to him and quickly hear back. As I shift my focus to what really lights my a** with passion, he offered some great stepping stones for me to take. And if you are in Chicago, send him a DM!

What Jew wanna do with yo life
Before Halloween 2017, I had the crazy idea to be an everything bagel with lox. When I looked online to find if anyone had done it before I stumbled among What Jew Wanna Eat . com and a picture of Amy Kritzer in the same costume...exactly as I had imagined. What did I do? Well of course, with the help of my girlfriend at the time, we got the supplies and made my costume DUH Then, as we all do, I posted a picture of me with my Jewish bagel costume on the IG the Following Day Amy Kritzer commented on my photo and reposted my post... this was my first time experiencing that well-known people were in communication with me. I reached out to Amy about my own blog and kippah company that I would like to create and she has been very helpful ever since. With Hanukkah just around the corner... even closer MAN I reached out to Amy to see how she became the creative person behind whatjewwannaeat.com! Amy kritzer is the founder of What Jew Wanna Eat an online website with all things jewish and cool because being Jewish is COOL. She is also the author of Sweet Noshings a cook book with new twists on traditional jewish desserts. HEY MOM you still need to make me the chocolate peanut butter babka!! She has appeared on several web features and mentions indluding the NY Times, Wall street journal, NPR, Soulcycle and domino and more. Check out her article THE BEST SHAKSHUKA RECIPES from March 2017! In addition to whatjewwannaeat.com she has also recently become the owner of moderntribe.com your quick shop of Jewish things in modern designs. If you're like my family... or any other jewish family that procrastinates... you can still shop on the site for great Hanukkah gifts like my Yamaclaus kipaah.... or a Dog Yarmukle and Tallis... or even THE KIPPAH a $36,000 Diamond Yarmulke... WOW Or a shirt with Jew Chainz Anyways... I reached out to Amy to discuss how she made the jump from her corporate job to putting full focus on her blog and company, in addition to getting ready for Hanukkah. In this episode, you will catch me repeating the word NICE and asking Amy relevant questions I have been pondering in my life that I hope offer questions or answers to you as well. What really helped me out is that at minute 15 she mentioned that things change very quickly and she got to a point right before her book deal that she nearly went back to her corporate job... then the following week she got an offer! One key takeaway is to step away and then come back to work when things are not working, getting inspired by stepping out of your comfort zone and doing something different than you normally would. I really hope you enjoy this episode as you get ready for Hanukkah starting the night of December 2! Thanks to Amy, my family now only has 7 gifts to get me ;)

Avenues for Joy and Peace with Frankie Wilson
Benjamin Disraeli said, "Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action. This quote brings me to our guest today, Mr. Frankie Wilson. Frankie Wilson is not defined by the titles he has but by the intention he lives by, which fuels him to take action. He lives with the purpose of giving off joy, peace, and wisdom. I believe it is living by this intention that he is able to be a successful businessman, radio host, speaker, and philanthropist. On today's episode Frankie and I talk about: - A Ph.D. in cognitive behavioral psychology Frankie is currently in - Understanding fears - what it means to stop the bleeding vs healing a wound - certain trigger points to fears - How purpose lies in character and intention - Frankie's intention of giving off joy, peace, and wisdom - The Giving Project and types of charity - His radio show Inside Gospel - Eliminating ego and enhancing love - the poem "If" by Rudyard Kipling - How Frankie channels the passion he brings - Frankie's gift to the world Thank you all for listening! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving break!

Wholeness and Intentions with Dr. Laura Munoz
Allowing oneself to be different in a healthy and respectable way is so important. And being able to learn about oneself along with learning about technical information can really help bring out one's true personality. With most of our youth being in school, teachers roles in our lives can really help mold us into the people we want to be. That's why I am so excited to share Dr. Laura Munoz with you. She is one of my favorite teachers at the University of Dallas and we sat down to talk about how she channels her passion and energy into teaching Marketing & Sales. We also touch on how she implements techniques with teaching, emotional intelligence, setting intentions rather than goals, and more. I hope this inspires you to channel your passion into your day, allow yourself to be you, and pass on a meaningful conversation! Peace out!
