015 - Walking Through a WALL OF FIRE and the POWER of a SUPPORT NETWORK
We're back! Alpha Shift Radio Episode 015: The power of a support network, and walking through your own wall of fire! David is back from his Global Family Reunion event in Los Cabos Mexico with The Global Information Network. It was incredible. David suggests you all come to play and learn all about it. More information can be found here: https://www.davidkruegercoaching.com/blog/you-won-t-believe-what-kevin-trudeau-did In this episode David and Don discuss: * The power of a Mastermind. The various types. You can enjoy an in-person mastermind or bring in a mental mastermind from anywhere. A support network is critical for everyone. Half of the men who write into The Alpha Shift are DEPRESSED. The reason is that they are isolated. * To get what you want, you must walk through a WALL OF FIRE. Maybe it's just plain hard, maybe you need to become someone new to receive what you are asking for. Your expansion will usually call for growth.  On the other side of your wall of fire is everything you want. Be courageous. * Good times create weak men. Weak men create bad times. Bad times create strong men. Strong men create good times. And so the story goes!

008 - Saving The Marriage AFTER The Divorce
Alpha Shift Radio Episode 008: "Saving The Marriage AFTER The Divorce" This week's very special episode of Alpha Shift Radio is what The Alpha shift is all about!  Today we bring you something that is virtually a miracle... A good friend of mine recovered from the adversity that we all face in life and did something few have ever done: Put his marriage back together AFTER his divorce. Hugh and Sandra, facing the challenges that we all face in lifelong partnerships divorced after 20 years of marriage. What makes this story unique and inspiring is how Hugh took 100% responsibility for his situation and took the DARE from life and from the universe to step forward and succeed where he had previously failed.   He snatched victory from the jaws of defeat, found enormous financial success, and became the best version of himself. Once that happened everything in his life fell back into place, his wife fell back in love with him, and five years after the divorce, they remarried. Gentlemen, wouldn't we all like to be a little more like Hugh? So many men come to my work when they are in deep trouble. Their lives and their relationships are failing. They want to "fix it". They want a quick solution to a complicated and heartbreaking problem that too them years to get into. They want answers. So I bring you answers. Listen to this man's story. The challenges he faced are like the challenges many of us face. And his resolution and ultimate victory show us what's necessary to turn a situation around. I was inspired by his story and I wanted him to come on the show and share his secrets for all of our benefits. For any guy who has ever felt like things were falling apart and felt like you were losing your wife and your family, you can always snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. Listen to every minute of this and take it in.  Anything is possible. As a man, you are responsible for your situation and your life. Learn everything you can from this story. There is gold here.

007 - Creating Your Reality
Alpha Shift Radio Podcast Episode 007: "Creating Your Reality" Building on last week's episode "The Secrets of Success," David and Don discuss techniques to clear out blockages and how to, on day by day basis, do the things required to create the life you desire and BE HAPPY. Highlights include: * Subconscious rewiring. How to reprogram the mind to eliminate subconscious blocks. * Self Talk has power. If you tell yourself you suck, you're fat, you're not Brad Pitt, then you will suck, will stay fat, and you can't LOOK like brad pit, but you can get in shape like him, smell like him. * Demonstration and discussion - breathing technique and mental auto-suggestion. How to clear out the blocks that hold you back. GOLDEN. * Success is not magic - it is something you do, or you don't do. It is predictable - if you do the right things consistently. * "Until" factor article by Bob McCurdy https://radioink.com/2019/11/10/do-you-have-the-until-factor/ * It's sales-related, but in the article, he talks about Kobe Bryant, and when a reporter asked how long he would work on something to perfect the move or the shot, he said: "until."  * A man needs to create himself anew. The new man that he is will attract circumstances and relationships more suited to his liking. Stop trying to "get" recognition or women. * How to set a goal. * Dream 10-20 years - lifetime.  * Chief aim - 3-5 years. * Sweet spot goal 90 days - most of your focus should be on this. * Next logical steps day to day. * Kaizen is an approach to creating continuous improvement based on the idea that small, ongoing positive changes can reap major improvements. Typically, it is based on cooperation and commitment and stands in contrast to approaches that use radical changes or top-down edicts to achieve transformation. * Future pacing and manifesting. * Talk about your goals as if they are done - get in the feeling space of it. We demonstrate how to do this. * 68 seconds of thinking about want you want equal to 10,000 hours of labor. All this and more, give us a listen right now!

006 - The Secrets To Success
Show Notes: In this episode, David and Don discuss the real secret behind personal success and making changes in one's life. David discusses his recent trip to Germany and the event at which he masterminded and gave a talk to several of his Global Information Network brothers and sisters. David has turned his life around using the system that The Global Information Network (GIN) has given him. That system is this: 1. Audios. Listen to positive inspiring audios every single day. At least an hour a day, more is better. 2. Read books. Even as little as a page a day will do. Audio and reading engage different parts of your brain and both are essential on a daily basis. 3. Attend live events. You must attend events as often as is humanly possible. Big stage events as well as smaller gatherings. It's important to get in the physical company of like-minded people who are going in the same direction that you are in life. The support you give and receive and the mastermind that you create together will propel you forward and life you up more than you would even have on your own. 4. Give and receive recognition. This is done far too little in life and in business today. Too often our achievement goes uncelebrated and unrecognized. We don't acknowledge our worth and self-esteem suffers. It is important to be recognized for our achievements. Even more powerful is having the opportunity to give recognition. When you whoop and holler and blast recognition at someone you are sending out a powerful transmission to the universe that will be reflected back to you many times over. 5. Form relationships. When you do the first four items on this list you will not be able to help but to form relationships with people who will support you and who are moving in the same direction you are. Your relationships are your riches. Everything you will ever receive in life will come through other people. The ability to form great relationships is the pinnacle of the entire system. Working together, these five elements will change your life - we discuss them at length. Don gives wonderful insights into the community, relationships and recognition that was afforded him through his lifelong association with the catholic church.  This is another critical clue to Don's marital and family success. This podcast is full of insights. Success leaves clues and I think this could be one of the better hours that you spend listening.

002 - "A Tale Of Two Lives..."
Welcome to the latest episode of The Alpha Shift! Featuring David Krueger and Don Kowalewski. David and Don met 28 years ago pledging a fraternity at Michigan State University. This episode is two men the same age who have known each other their entire adult lives. Yet their lives took interesting and different courses. Your humble host David had fun and calamity in his personal life, as you all know.   Don married his college sweetheart and has been married 22 years. He has three beautiful kids, three cars, a crushing mortgage, and a dog he doesn't even like. In this episode the hosts realize that the grass is not always greener on the other side. Show highlights include: * Life paths are different but one is not necessarily wrong. * Sometimes a man finds the right compatible girl and gets lucky. * A woman is attracted to who you are when you meet her. Too often we become someone else - someone who hides in the basement and stops courting her. * Having the guts and the stick-to-it-iveness to go after what you want in life. What it means to show up and get it done. * David's little known Hollywood career and Don's brush with stand-up comedy and how the choices they made affected their lives and loved ones. * There are no wrong decisions. * The danger of comparing yourself to others. * The real reason some couples stay together and some separate. * Don's formula for calculating your TRUE age. Hint you are YOUNGER than you think you are! Subscribe for notifications and email newsletter at www.thealphashift.com

001 - Making Better Men
show notes: Featuring David Krueger and Brian Krueger. Welcome to Alpha Shift. It is a movement... In this inaugural edition of The Alpha Shift Podcast, David and his brother (from the same mother) discuss taking full responsibility for our lives, how we are on the side of women, and what we think has gone wrong for men (and women) in these interesting times we live in. Highlights: * The Elusive American Husband. Where have all the good men gone? Changing gender norms are leaving men adrift and women lonely and alone. The new rules aren't working. * Hasbro Toy Company goes full on "woke" with the introduction of Ms. Monopoly. The game is actually extremely insulting to girls as it gives them an unfair (and unnecessary advantage over boys). Also sends message to young boys that they are less important. WTF? * "Man Happily Includes Wife's Lover in Their Wedding Photos: Cheating on me is a part of her identity." Why polyamory and cuckoldry are signs of the coming apocalypse. There is no virtue or value is some younger generations and we share responsibility in creating it. * But don't worry we will turn this around and everything is going to be OK... Enjoy the show and we'll see you next week! - David
