Knowledge is not enough.We can know what we’re doing isn’t good for us in the long run.We can know that we have weaknesses in certain areas.We can know that we have stored up pain and anxiety.But what do we do with that knowledge?You have to work through your past issues and trauma so that you stop repeating harmful patterns.It’s not easy, but it’s worth it.For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with Neil Strauss where he shared how he went from being a “pick up artist” to someone capable of having a fulfilling romantic relationship.Neil Strauss is a seven-time New York Times best-selling author. In his latest book, The Truth: An Uncomfortable Book About Relationships, Strauss dives deep into the worlds of sex addiction, non-monogamy, infidelity, and intimacy, and explores the hidden forces that cause people to choose each other, stay together, and break up.Neil says that learning humility was key to helping him grow as a person. He had to admit to himself that he was smart but didn’t know everything.Learn how to heal from your past trauma and keep evolving in Episode 801.
We’re a slave to our thoughts.And most of the time, they’re not true.“This person doesn’t care about me. This person did this to me. I’m not worthy of love.”Our thoughts create suffering.So how can we stop believing them?On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about the ego and how to investigate our thoughts with the creator of The Work: Byron Katie.
How often do you say, “I’m just going to get through the day.”You’re running on adrenaline.But it’s not sustainable.If you’re not relaxed, you’re not breathing. If you’re not breathing, you’re not getting oxygen.It’s a loop.You’re going to be exhausted all the time.On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about the power of breathing to heal our mind and body with a man known as “The Iceman:” Wim Hof.
Spend With Joy

Spend With Joy


We all have an area of life we love spending money on.For me, it’s relationships. For you, it could be travel, food, wellness or something else.This is called your “money dial.” Once you figure out your money dial, you can spend intentionally on that rather than spending lots of money on everything.For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with Ramit Sethi where he shared about his concept of “money dials” and how to spend money on the things that bring you joy.Ramit says that we should cut back spending on things we don’t care about but spend without apology on the area that makes us the happiest.We can also stop judging other people for having different money dials than us.Learn how to identify your money dial and how it can take your life to the next level in Episode 798.
Shame takes on many forms.We can feel shameful about our race, our gender, about aging, and so much more.Shame makes us stay small.What if instead of feeling shame about our insecurities, we celebrated every aspect of ourselves? What if we learned to think independently instead of listening to what the media says about us?To become the powerful confident person you are meant to be, you have to identify your shame and work hard to eliminate it.It won’t just disappear on its own.On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about shame with an actor who has made body positivity her mission: Jameela Jamil.
You can’t always be achieving.You can’t always win, always give, and always be making an impact.Sometimes you have to receive, too.It’s how the universe works.You have to balance your “in” with your “out.”Even when the water recedes back from the shore it’s still the ocean.On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about being equally grateful for the busy times and the quiet ones with a successful podcast host, author and comedian: Pete Holmes.

Probably the worst episode I've heard on an otherwise excellent show!

I used to really enjoy this podcast. Sadly it no longer feels authentic since what happened with Jen. His actions speak more highly of his character than his words on here, I just can't take him seriously anymore. Unfortunately feel compelled to unsubscribe.
