E465 Stop Getting In Your Own Way And 'Just Do It'

Hesitation has the power to kill any dream. Maybe this is why I've always been so enamored with Nike's "Just Do It" marketing campaign. While Nike created an expceptional tag-line that has become recognized worldwide, they also crafted a motto to live life by.

E455 It's Gonna Piss You Off

Michael Vick.  The name alone creates polarization for a number of different reasons.  At the peak of his NFL career, Vick was forced off the field for two years after pleading guilty to running a dog fighting ring.  After serving his time and paying his debt to society, he excelled in his return to the NFL and has been an advocate for the Humane Society ever since.  Although this is the case, he has recently been in the news and has been chastised for past transgressions that happened over 14 years ago.  Fair warning; this episode could piss you off.  Today I'm simply looking to start a discussion.

E453 Control Your Time, Increase Efficiency, and Create Freedom

Time.  It's the one asset we can't currently reproduce and have no hope to gain back.  As least that's what everyone would have you believe.  Most of us fall victim to the mindset that immediately responding to texts and emails is the only way to progress in business.  Those same people would be shocked to know that the exact opposite is true.  Every time we break our concentration due to an email or text alert, we're setting ourselves back not just minutes, but sometimes hours or days.  This adds up to a staggering lack of productivity simply due to notifications.  On today's quick hitting episode I explain how you can gain back not only your time and productivity, but also your sanity.

When I first began this coaching journey, I was convinced I had to do everything.  I was laser focused on improving every aspect of a clients life and believed the only way to do it is 1-on-1.  After doing this for the first few months, I quickly realized I was in over my head.  You see, people want and need a tribe.  They want to feel like they belong to a larger whole.  I know this because this is why I sought out a coach in the first place.  Whether your in coaching, looking to become a coach, or seeking a coach yourself, this episode is sure to shift your perspective on why it's important to find your tribe.

Vulnerability Is The Only Way To Grow

The quick road is often paved with good intentions.  The fact remains, the easy route is rarely ever the easiest way to go.  For anyone that’s listened to me for any extended period of time, you’d know I spent the better part of the past 10 years taking the “easy” route.  As you’d also know, the easy route never exactly panned out for me.  Carrying over from my first day in Salt Lake City, I’ve had a number of different learning experiences.  Today I’m here to explain why getting vulnerable in your business is ultimately what it takes to reach true success.  It’s going to be painful for sure, but in the long run it will be worth it.  • Visit http://bit.ly/hpicoaching to become a certified coach with the Human Potential Institute.  • Searching for additional ways to improve your physical and cognitive performance?  Head to http://bit.ly/optimizedpeptides for high quality products that are sure to optimize your life. •  Check out http://bit.ly/Optimizedlifeshow for exclusive content and downloadable PDFs for each episode. •  Interested in joining the Mindset Matters group on Facebook?  Email me at ryan@ryanniddel.com or follow this link http://bit.ly/MindsetMattersGroup Once you click join we'll reach out to you to confirm your membership.

Why It's Time to Audit Your Social Media

For quite some time I utilized a particular cadence with my social media posts.  While they offered some short term gratification, they were actually doing nothing to build long-term good will with my followers.  Eventually I realized that I simply wasn't doing things the "right" way.  What I was doing wasn't serving my own personal goals or the people that I was looking to help.  The truth is that I needed to audit what I was doing and make a pretty severe course correction.  This doesn't just have to be in social media  This applies to the rest of your life.  Join me today as I outline a strategy that will allow you to continually audit every aspect of your life and make the changes you need to succeed long-term. • Interested in joining my group coaching sessions filled with purpose driven, selfless entrepreneurs with all levels of experience from all corners of the globe?

Sunday Secret: Why Success Comes in Boxes

What's the first thing you think of when you hear the word boxes?  For many of you, you likely thought of presents, something new you just bought, or perhaps moving.  What if I told you those are the least important boxes you'll ever have to touch?  You see, it's the boxes that we place ourselves in which generally keep us from reaching our greatest potential.  Where in your life can you pack or unpack a box in order to move forward? • Interested in joining my group coaching sessions filled with purpose driven, selfless entrepreneurs with all levels of experience from all corners of the globe?

Sometimes You Just Need To Quit

High achievers have the natural desire to push, but when does pushing become too much?  It becomes too much when the gas pedal is always slammed to the floor.  Building the life that you dream of takes hard work, but it's easy to become overly focused on your goal and burn yourself out.  Today I'm going to explain why sometimes letting your foot off the gas is the best thing to propel yourself forward. • Interested in joining my group coaching sessions filled with purpose driven, selfless entrepreneurs with all levels of experience from all corners of the globe?

When's The Last Time You Learned Something New?

Learning a new idea, skill or trade takes much more than simply hearing it once. Learning a new idea, skill or trade takes more than reading it twice.  Truly learning anything new will take attempted application of the new idea, over a period of time. It will take consistency at the attempts until the skill becomes automatic. So...why do we say we “learned” something new after reading it, hearing it, or watching it?

80/20 Rule | Chase The 20% That Pays 80%

Why 20% of your efforts yield 80% of your results, and how you can use the Pareto Principle to expand in every aspect of your life. The 80/20 rule, also known as the Pareto Principle, has been proven time and time again. So if roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes, why would you not look at the numbers and consistently adjust your focus? Adapting and narrowing your focus on the 20% of clients that bring in 80% of your income, and over time doing it again and again, there is no where to go but up! The same goes for productivity. Stop wasting the day on tasks that take an incredible amount of your time and aren’t worth it in the end. Outsource those tasks. Stop doing/chasing/serving the 80% that ultimately won’t get you to where you want to go. Scale, outsource, grow, succeed. • Interested in joining my group coaching sessions filled with purpose driven, selfless entrepreneurs with all levels of experience from all corners of the globe?

Getting Out Of A Slump And Back On The Right Path

Have you ever been in a slump, a funk, unmotivated, stuck in a pit of darkness with no escape in sight? Today’s episode is a little different from the rest. It’s more of a confessional, but that doesn’t mean there aren't any lessons to be learned (for you and for me). Recently I’ve been stuck, unable to produce in my relationships, in my business, even in my own mind. It seemed like there was no way things were going to turn around. Until they did. Listen and hear how I managed to go from on top of the world to a feeling of hopelessness, and back. Remember, you are not alone.

Sunday Secret: Overcoming Self-Doubt

Do you ever ask yourself if you’re qualified to do what you do? Sure there’s value in all the pieces of paper and letters after your name that you can earn through a traditional education. But how much dirt do you have under your nails, how many minutes have you been in the game, how much experience do you have succeeding and or failing at what you do? Stop looking to yourself for all the answers. Look for a mentor who has been where you are at this moment but is now where you want to be. Learn from them. And buckle up.

Anxiety: What Is It And How To Deal With It

What makes you anxious? Money? Relationships? Success or failure? Your health? Everyone has a different trigger, but more than likely they are rooted in fear and worry. And even more so, those fears come from past experiences. Losing your job in the past could lead to you being anxious about job security every day. In today’s episode I’m going to share 5 psychologically based exercises to help you better understand and process your anxiety. These exercises may not be suited for serious mental health issues such as PTSD, and this podcast should not be a substitute or replacement for professional help. They are simply techniques I’ve seen work in the personal development landscape that are backed by scientific research. • Interested in joining my group coaching sessions filled with purpose driven, selfless entrepreneurs with all levels of experience from all corners of the globe?

How Self-Aware Are You? Do You Truly Know Yourself?

Do you REALLY know where you are, what you’re doing, and why you’re doing it? Most of us will respond with a resounding, “YES!” It’s easy to answer this question with a literal, in the moment anwer. “I am on the highway, driving at 55 miles per hour, so that I can get to work, so that I can earn a paycheck, so that I can support my family.” Sure, I guess that answers the question, but on a very surface level. Go deeper. Why are you doing those things? How did you get to where you are and regardless of whether these decisions are for better or worse, why do you continually choose to live in this way? Do you truly know yourself?

How To Live a Better Life By Watching Superhero Movies

Before you plan on a Netflix binge, let me explain. Every superhero movie revolves around a similar set of core principles. Every hero has a plan, something interrupts that plan, and the hero overcomes all obstacles to win in the end. We don’t find satisfaction in watching the hero slay a dragon, or knock out an opponent in the ring. Those are actually metaphors for the protagonist’s journey to overcome great obstacles. Any villain, it doesn't matter if it’s an alien, robot, sea creature, or demigod with a chip on his shoulder, is merely an obstacle in the way of the hero achieving success. Where in your life can you relate? Where are you stumbling, running into barriers, or being knocked down. Take a note from Tony Stark, Dr. Steven Strange, Dr. Bruce Banner, or even Thor. Learn from your mistakes and shortcomings, learn how to overcome obstacles, and achieve greatness. • Interested in joining my group coaching sessions filled with purpose driven, selfless entrepreneurs with all levels of experience from all corners of the globe?

Why do you get out of bed every day? Why do you go to work, the gym, or anywhere for that matter? What is the motivating factor behind all of those decisions? Is it money, health, vanity? Or is it something deeper than that. If you don’t have a roof over your head or food to eat, money isn’t the problem. Oddly enough, money is RARELY the answer to these questions whether or not you have food and shelter.

I help entrepreneurs scale their business, increase their income, and give them more time to spend with their families. And I’m good at it.

Not who you CAN do business with, who you would CHOOSE to do business with. Stop speaking to the masses, no one hears you when you do that.

How to stop being lazy and start being productive

Are you lazy? Be honest. Do you have a long list of things you want to accomplish, or maybe a shorter list of big things, that you just can’t seem to complete because you’re too busy, it’s too hard, or just not worth it?

Today I dive into a list of 8 simple things, a list of “laziness mind hacks” if you will, that will help you get over your excuses, accomplish more, and live in a constant state of flow.

You Are Creating Your Own Unhappiness | How To Turn That Frown Upside Down.

Happiness, and ultimately unhappiness, is all your own creation. If you are stuck living in your past, dwelling on what was and not what is, you are more than likely unhappy. If you are able to be present in the moment and tap into the eternal NOW, you are undoubtedly happy. If you’re on the side of the fence that is filled with complaints, negativity, and “failure” and you want to jump to the other side and experience fulfillment, positivity, and opportunity, then listen up. We live in an eternal state of NOW, stop letting memories of the past dictate how you perceive NOW and how you move forward. • Interested in joining my group coaching sessions filled with purpose driven, selfless entrepreneurs with all levels of experience from all corners of the globe?

The Quality of Your Contributions to Others = The Quality of Your Life

Your life’s purpose is calling, will you answer? The quality of your life ultimately boils down to the quality of your contribution. What does that mean exactly? Think of the times when you have felt most fulfilled in your life. More than likely it had nothing to do with income, social status, or something tangible. It was more than likely a time when you were not thinking of yourself at all, but instead being selfless. In my weekly group coaching session filled with entrepreneurs in all stages of their business, I am constantly amazed by the quality of sharing and contribution. Incredibly successful business owners helping new businesses get started. Younger minds helping a veteran revive a failing business. All amazing minds helping each other grow as opposed to tearing each other down. And what I’m finding more and more is that the people who are the happiest are those who are pursuing something that aligns with their soul and contributes to others. If you’re looking to make a shift in your life, consider giving up your ego, being less selfish and more selfless, and pouring into others.  • Visit http://www.lifeoptimizationtest.com to find out where you fall when it comes to spiral dynamics and human behavior • Visit http://bit.ly/hpicoaching to become a certified coach with the Human Potential Institute • Follow me on Instagram at http://www.instagram.com/ryanniddel

How To Alter Your Current Reality | Control What Enters Your Mind

What does it take to change our own mind? What would be possible if you no longer allowed your mind to dwell on what you do not have? What if you stopped the limiting beliefs, negative self-image, and poor self-talk from creeping into your mind? Imagine how much time you could put towards positivity and advancement if you cut out all the time wasted on negativity and doubt, and get ready to have your mind blown when I do the math for you.

Why Your Time Is More Valuable Than Anything Else You Could Imagine

I understand that there are bills to pay. I also understand that things cost money, both tangible goods such as a car, food, the shirt on your back, as well as non-tangibles like vacations, entertainment, etc. But you can always get more money. However you can’t get more time. Once you’re out of time, that’s it. Once you’ve used your time, there is no getting it back. Stop wasting your time. Stop procrastinating. Stop saying things like, “Some day I will…” My friends, TODAY is SOME DAY! Today I talk about how you can guard your time appropriately and treat it like the valuable commodity that it is. Once you learn how to treat (and use) your time wisely, you’ll begin to see the countless opportunities for success that are in front of you and you’ll forget about everything else that is a WASTE OF TIME. • Visit http://www.lifeoptimizationtest.com to find out where you fall when it comes to spiral dynamics and human behavior • Visit http://bit.ly/hpicoaching to become a certified coach with the Human Potential Institute • Follow me on Instagram at http://www.instagram.com/ryanniddel

Personal Discipline | The difference between the HAVEs and HAVE NOTs

Are there things that you wish you could do? Wish you could get up earlier to be more productive? Wish you could get to the gym more frequently? Wish you could eat better? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you have plenty of room to grow when it comes to self-control and willpower. You need to get uncomfortable and make incremental changes toward your goal. And you need to be consistent! That means every day. And when you make enough incremental changes and create a massive shift from the person you once were, you can become a master or your personal world and nothing can stop you from getting to where you want to go. Every day you should be striving to be slightly better than you were the day before, so when you look back you don’t even recognize who you were before you started. But it’s tough. It takes self-discipline.

Rise Early & With Passion | Why Rising With The Sun Ensures Success

Yes, for the first few days, this will be exhausting. But so is any kind of change. Deal with it. The reward on the backside is incredibly worthwhile. There is no perfect time to make a change, it will always be difficult. But the sooner you start, the sooner you reap the benefits. I can hear it now, “but we need sleep, Ryan!” Yes, that is correct. But it’s the quality of sleep that matters, not the quantity. And if you stop staring at your phone while lying in bed, this process would come much easier to you. Try it tomorrow. Wake up early, go outside, leave the technology, only focus on positive things. This will jump start your morning. Then ask yourself, “What would you do today if this was your last day?” And the answer to that question my friend, is how you go after every single day. - Visit http://www.lifeoptimizationtest.com to find out where you fall when it comes to spiral dynamics and human behavior - Visit http://bit.ly/HPIcoaching to become a certified coach with the Human Potential Institute - Follow me on instagram at http://www.instagram.com/ryanniddel

The best leaders know how to inspire others, create a movement, and bring about change.  What about everyone else?  Most of us fail to realize the biggest key when it comes to any management or leadership position:  everything is our fault.  If your team isn’t executing, it’s because you aren’t providing them the tools necessary to do so.  Today we learn how to shed the things that are holding us back. - Visit http://www.lifeoptimizationtest.com to find out where you fall when it comes to spiral dynamics and human behavior - Visit http://bit.ly/HPIcoaching to become a certified coach with the Human Potential Institute - Follow me on instagram at http://www.instagram.com/ryanniddel

Personal Growth Without A Guru | The Rule of 672 and How To Use It To Break Bad Habits and Create Good Ones

In Part 3 of this series of self-improvement without the coach/guru/guide or financial expenses, I dive into what you HAVE to do. If you want to get out of the place you are in, and begin moving toward the place you want to be, you simply must do it! You actually have to take the ideas and methodologies I am sharing with you and you have to apply them to your life. Not just think about them and go on about your day, you need to take meaningful action and ACT, DO, and CHANGE if you want to see results. While I did say this wouldn’t come with any monetary expense, this will require hard work and time. And this hard work and time will take at the bare minimum 672 hours of consistency to have a lasting impact on your life.

Fulfillment | How You Show Up In Life, And What Shows Up For You

Today we continue down the path of figuring out what exactly we want to achieve, what exactly we truly love, and how serving others yields a level of fulfillment unlike any other act. Think about it… little things like holding the door for someone, helping a child with their shoes, or donating to the needy, how do those acts make you feel? It fills you with joy, right? Now imagine how you would feel, every moment of every day, if you found a way to tie together these acts of giving and generosity and love with your passions. Would you ever be tired?

Ego | The What, The Why, And The How Of Managing It For Success.

For a long time, the “ego” has received a bad rap. The words, “self centered,” “pompous,” and, “big-headed,” give the ego a negative connotation. But we often confused ego with narcissism, which is the excessive interest in one’s self and abilities and undervaluing the contributions of others. Having an ego, a healthy development of self-esteem is a vital quality to produce at the level you are capable of. The main difference being that you can be incredible, and know and be open about it, but the instant you put others down rather than lift them up you become narcissistic. On the other hand having a healthy ego will also allow you to see where you are lacking and where you need to grow. Listen and learn how to use your ego to propel yourself into new heights.

E433 Finance Week Day 5 | How Your Beliefs About Money Determine Your Financial Future

Money doesn’t grow on trees.  Have you ever heard this before?  For many of us, our ability to produce at a high level has nothing to do with our skills or knowledge.  On the contrary, it has everything to do with our beliefs surrounding money. Most of us grew up with rather poor beliefs on money that were passed down to us by our family and society as a whole.  These stories and beliefs shape our lives, and unless something is done to change them, we will always stay stuck in the same rut.

E427 Family Week Day 4 | Spending Time With Loved Ones

How often do you work too hard at the office, giving it everything you’ve got in an attempt to earn more, produce more, and achieve a stable and comfortable living? Then immediately after you fight traffic to get home, and then before anything else you go through the never ending list of what is commonly referred to as “adulting,” laundry, trash, dinner, dishes, etc.? By the end of all this, we normally just want some peace and quiet instead of conversation and sharing with our loved ones. We eventually go to sleep, and the cycle continues. There is a way to recalibrate your thoughts, your habits, your life. Remember what it felt like to date your wife, husband, or significant other? It’s that simple, DATE your family. Listen as I walk you through how I learned to stop rushing, stop burning out, and start recalibrating my life by dating each member of my family.   Click Here to find out how we can work together to take your life to the next level.  Start today!

E423 Family Week Day 1 | Gratitude Builds Bonds

The simplest things in life are frequently the most impactful.  On this first day of Family Week, we’re going to examine how observation, abundance, and gratitude form the foundation for any strong relationship.  Every single day we must express honor, love, or appreciation for the person that is closest to us. There’s plenty of ways to accomplish this, but I’ve found the most effective method is daily text messages.  Listen to find out how you can use your cell phone to create a stronger relationship, one day at a time.   Click Here to find out how we can work together to take your life to the next level.  Start today!

E421 Faith Week Day 7 | Elevation Through Psychedelics

Have you ever been called by the plants?  For quite some time it seemed that I couldn’t get away from the thought of plant-based medicine.  After diving in and doing extensive research of my own, I realized that the world had created a perception about plant-based medicine that wasn’t entirely true.  My personal experiences with psilocybin and ayahuasca have allowed me to reconnect with parts of myself that I never knew existed. It connected with what I’d call “the source”.   Listen to find out how if the time is right and you’re open enough, the plants can show you what reality truly is.   Click Here to find out how we can work together to take your life to the next level.  Start today!

E420 Faith Week Day 6 | There’s More To Life Than What You See (Or Hear)

Comparison is a fool’s errand.  Why do I say this? We don’t perceive things in the same way.  You and I don’t see color in the exact same way. We don’t hear music in the same way.  This inherently means that we are always right and always wrong all at the same time. Through the interconnectedness of the universe, we are inevitably searching for the same things in different forms.  This episode gets a little out there, but it’s a true representation of my thoughts and my feelings at the present time.   Click Here to find out how we can work together to take your life to the next level.  Start today!

E419 Faith Week Day 5 | Create Change Through Belief

It’s a simple fact:  if you want to create change in your life you must first believe that you are capable of changing.  Most people that want to create change ultimately struggle to do so because their upbringing and society at large has told them they aren’t deserving of something better.  It’s time for a change. It’s time to switch your personal hierarchy and put YOU first. Once you put yourself first and prioritize what you do with your mind, body, and soul, you will begin to notice rapid change.   Click Here to find out how we can work together to take your life to the next level.  Start today!

E418 Faith Week Day 4 | How To Find Faith In Yourself

We all have doubt.  We all have a voice in our head that tells us we can’t do something.  At a very base level, you and I are no different. So why do some overcome it while others regress?  Those that overcome choose not to be influenced by others. They are empathetic to the needs and desires of other people and don’t let the attitudes of others infiltrate their opinion of themselves.  They detach from the need to be right in every situation which opens up new possibilities. Listen to find out how you can break down these barriers in your life and create new paths you never expected.   Click Here to find out how we can work together to take your life to the next level.  Start today!

E417 Faith Week Day 3 | How To Track And Monitor Your Faith

E416 Faith Week Day 2 | Meditation

Meditation is one of the greatest tools on this planet for connecting to a power greater than yourself, but many people avoid it.  Why? If you’re anything like me, I held the assumption that in order to meditate I had to shave my head and become a monk. I’m glad to report, this couldn’t be further from the truth.  Today I dive into different methods on how to use meditation in just 15 minutes in order to connect with the source energy. Find out how to use meditation to align the left and right hemispheres of your brain, how meditation clears mental space, and how to use breathing techniques to enhance your meditation practice.   Click Here to find out how we can work together to take your life to the next level.  Start today!

E415 Faith Week Day 1 | The Voice And Visualization

Where did the voice in your head come from?  All of us have an internal voice and guidance system, but most of us live life at the mercy of it.  We live by this internal operating system that was impressed upon us by other people, and until we take an active role in changing it we will suffer at the hands of our past.  Today I talk about the power of visualization and explain how it’s elevated my own live, including bringing my wife Lindsay into my life.

After the past five days, we’ve set a solid base on what I’d consider to be the basics every single one of us needs to do to live a healthy life.  Today I’m going to dive into why blue light exposure is disrupting your sleep, your circadian rhythm, and your overall health.

E413 Day 5 Wellness Week | No You Can't Have That

For most people, once we start our fitness journey and start to see some results, we have the tendency to want to reward ourselves.  Whether your vice is alcohol, sugar, fried foods, or whatever else it might be, I’m here to explain to you why this can be a very dangerous path to tip-toe when it comes to diet and physical fitness.  Why? It bleeds into everything you do. Instead of continuing to push higher, you allow negative habits simply because you’re achieving positive results.

Day 1 we covered some basics to nutrition and health. Day 2 we covered how to eat for your blood type and the seemingly endless benefits from that focused approach to food.

E409 Wellness Week Day 2 | Eat Like Your Blood Type

Today we dive into my favorite way of consuming food, eating based on your blood type. If you Google it, you’ll get a bunch of mixed reviews, however if you dig into some real information you’ll find this has been used with tremendous success for decades. Dr. D’Adamo, the creator of blood type dieting, preaches that a one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition DOES NOT WORK, and I 100% agree. With so many differences in our DNA, why would anyone assume that the same diet works for everyone.

E408 Wellness Week Day 1 | Back To The Basics

Over the next week I am going to share some practical and tactical health and wellness tips as it pertains to your body quadrant of your 4 dimensional life. Today we get back to the basics. Think about our ancestors. Think about those who weren’t stuck in front of a computer screen all day, or stuck in an office chair for 8 hours a day. Think about how our ancestors lived on this very planet. Cold baths in a stream. The only light coming from either the sun or a fire. No man-made chemicals entering our bodies through processed food. But what about the modern life expectancy? Sure, we are living longer… much longer. But has our quality of life expanded as well? Is our health optimal as we reach our later years? We may be living longer, but many of us are not living better. Listen in as I got down the rabbit hole and talk about how going back to the basics can help us get back to being healthy, not just old.   Click Here to find out how we can work together to take your life to the next level.  Start today!

E407 Update | What’s Affecting You?

Some amazing friendships that have grown through the Life Optimization Group, my amazing experience with plant medicine and Rythmia Life Advancement Center, and my ever-evolving skills in the boxing ring have brought me to the realization that not EVERYTHING is meant to come to fruition. I once said I would be in a boxing ring with another man by now. Hasn’t happened. I also said I would be training to run an Iron Man. Haven’t even started training. But why does that even matter? As I’ve grown and evolved, now punching another man in the face doesn’t seem so important to me. Neither does running, biking, or swimming incredible distances. Life is full of twists and turns. The only thing constant is change.

E403 Painful Lessons | How To Cover Yourself And Keep Your Money

The lessons that impact us the most are rarely ever enjoyable at the time.  Even more, it’s generally something we never see coming.

E400 How Is Your Neck? | How To Stop Looking In The Past

Have you ever tried to drive a car forward while looking in the rearview mirror?  If so, how’d that work out for you? I’m going to guess not all that well and potentially even catastrophic.  With that in mind, if we can’t even drive a car while gazing in the past, how can we hope to do the same with our life?  We can’t. It’s a fool's errand. The only way to progress is to keep your eyes focused forward.

E398 I Can't Help You If... | If You're Lazy, You Might Not Be For Me

Let’s just be honest.  I can’t work with everyone.  Yes, I’m a coach who strives to get the best out of every single person I come in contact with, but that doesn’t mean that everyone I come in contact with reciprocates that feeling.  The truth is that if I’m showing up for you in the elite capacity that I do, then I expect you to honor that same commitment to yourself. If you can’t, then what are we here for? Today I dive into why not everyone is for me, and why that likely means you aren’t paying yourself the respect you deserve.   Click Here to find out how we can work together to take your life to the next level.  Start today!

E396 Preconceived Notions | How Are They Holding You Back?

Bias is inherent.  With the way we are raised and the tribes we associate with throughout our life, it’s nearly impossible to eliminate bias from our lives.  Our experiences form preconceived notions, especially when dealing with new and novel situations. As you listeners know, I recently interviewed adult film star Kendra Lust.  Leading up to this interview, I couldn’t help but speculate on what would happen when arriving at Kendra’s home. I think it’s safe to say most people inherently assume things about an adult film star, 95% of which I’ve realized probably aren’t true.  Listen to find out how Kendra dispelled many preconceived notions I walked in with and how I realized my assumptions could be holding me back.   Click Here to find out how we can work together to take your life to the next level.  Start today!   To alter the course of your life, join a group of like-minded individuals in the 10 Day Challenge.  Click here to sign up!   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E395 A Note Of Appreciation | What Are You Grateful For?

Have you ever had one of those days where you weren’t feeling like yourself and then life takes a huge shift?  Today was one of those days for me. You see, we all succumb to paralyzation through comparison.

Listen to find out why a single note of appreciation outweighs 100,000+ followers.   I’m talking about one of those times when you simply don’t feel like yourself, but then something happens to bring you back.  Today that was a conversation with my good friend Bryce Presscott.   To alter the course of your life, join a group of like-minded individuals in the 10 Day Challenge.  Click here to sign up! https://go.lifeoptimizationgroup.com/10day-video-training     Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

We all seem to be searching for something.  Afterall, that’s the reason I traveled to Rythmia in the first place.  I arrived in Costa Rica looking for answers.

On today’s episode, I was fortunate enough to travel to Detroit, MI, to interview the incredible Kendra Lust.  I’ve personally always been incredibly curious about the mindset of what inspires or motivates someone to get into the adult film industry.  While we touch on her career in the industry, we spend quite a bit of time talking about how her relationship with her husband has evolved, her time as a nurse, how everyone in her life found out about her foray into pornography, living the lifestyle, and so much more.  We also talk about how technology has changed the industry and how that’s affected rates and distribution models.

E382 Lessons From Last Night | Plan To Win

As the saying goes, if you fail to plan then you should plan to fail.  Sometimes when I get an idea, I get a little over anxious. This is no more true than when I came up with the idea to launch a 10 Day Challenge.  With Costa Rica bearing down on me as well as my existing responsibilities as a coach, it wasn’t exactly the best time to take on building a new section of my business.  Had I just taken the time to think about it and look at a schedule, I likely would have taken a different route.

Lately I’ve been feeling a bit off.  Truthfully, I feel like I’m not doing enough.  Even with the podcast downloads, the social media following, the books I’ve read, client testimonials, and the ever growing coaching practice, I’ve been feeling a sense of lack.  Given everything I just stated, how would I ever believe I’m not good enough?

E380 Resistance Is Not Always The Answer | Why Change Is Necessary To Evolve

Sometimes being hard headed isn’t the best or smartest thing.  When I first jumped into the coaching space, I started with a platform that didn’t let us automatically release videos on a daily basis.  Why does this all matter? It meant the team was spending literally hours every day manually uploading videos. But still I found myself resisting change.  Why? Because in order to find a better solution, it’d mean I’d have to relinquish some control. Listen to find out why I’m so excited for what the future holds when it comes to my coaching tools.  The bigger question is, how can you release control to grow?   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E378 Ryan & Lindsay - What Happens If The Wheels Fall Off The Bus? | Lindsay’s Plan For The Future

This past weekend I had one of those days where I was just off.  Not only did I feel it, but Lindsay noticed it as well. Call it stress, call it working too much, call it whatever you want, but my energy wasn’t the same.  To be honest, I just started worrying about what would happen if everything came crashing down. What would happen to our family? Truth be told, the conversation then transitioned to Lindsay.  We’ve made a note on past shows of Lindsay’s history in the veterinary field and her passion for animals. We’ve talked about her time working inside a mid-level marketing company. In addition, we’ve talked about her helping as a project manager with the coaching business.  On today’s episode, we’re going to dive deep into Lindsay’s future and how she see it playing out for herself and our family.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E377 It's Not You, It's Me | Lessons From Searching For Office Space

It’s incredible how much things can change in a year.  A little over a year ago, we moved into an office space that was literally an empty concrete box.  Since then, we’ve painted the floors, built a podcasting room, built a set for shooting videos, had graffiti done on the walls, and much more.  When it comes down to it, we’ve been investing money in something we don’t own. My thoughts then progressed the commute I’m making every day. Once I added up all the variables, I realized things just don’t make sense.  Literally. As things have evolved over the past several months, I can see something needs to change. Listen to see why it’s important to evaluate every aspect of your life, down to the last minute.

E374 Focus On Your Focus | A Simple Shift That Can Change Your Life

Coaching has truly blessed me in so many ways.  Above all else, the lessons I learn from my clients on a daily basis have helped me expand my own mindset.  In this particular instance, my client was sharing an issue in his life involving his children. While initially it seemed as if there was nothing good to be gained from the situation, when we stepped back and re-framed everything his entire perspective changed.  This brought me to wonder where in my own life am I unable to focus on the real lesson and gift from a challenging situation?

E373 Internal Anxiety | How To Get Back In Alignment When You Feel Off

The last few weeks have been off.  Sometimes when you listen to the podcast it might sound like everything in my life is good 100% of the time.  I get it. I’m always looking to put out an uplifting message and put a positive spin on any event. It just hasn’t been true lately.  When looking to expand the Life Optimization group and our overall capacity, I came up with the idea to bring on other coaches. This week I realized this was really out of alignment with what I ultimately do.  Listen to why this created an incredible amount of anxiety over the past couple weeks, and how it all came to head in conflict conversation with these coaches. •  To alter the course of your life, join a group of like-minded individuals in the 10 Day Challenge.  Click here to sign up! https://go.lifeoptimizationgroup.com/10day-video-training   •  Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E371 Ryan and Lindsay - Lessons From The Bathroom | We’re All Full Of S#!t

With Easter going on this past weekend there was plenty of the expected.  Family time, Easter egg hunting, candy (not for me) and much, much more. There was, however, a brand new tradition ushered in by Lindsay and I.  Once all of the family hubbub had died down, we decided it was time to relax a bit before bed. In what some would consider an odd move, we reached for the coffee.  Strange, I know, but listen up to find out how the coffee not only cleared our minds and our stomachs but also generated some laughs along the way.   •  To alter the course of your life, join a group of like-minded individuals in the 10 Day Challenge.  Click here to sign up! https://go.lifeoptimizationgroup.com/10day-video-training   •  Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E370 Declaration | Where I’m Going And What It All Means

In today’s world, too many people sit on the fence.  They waffle back-and-forth instead of making a declaration and going with it.  What ends up happening? Nothing. Without a declaration, they stand stagnant, trapped in limbo between what they want to do and the fear of what others will think.  Today I discuss why declaring that really big goal that lies deep within your soul will not only put you on the path to success, but it will completely set you free.  Listen as I declare where I’m going to be one year from today and how I’m going to get there. •  To alter the course of your life, join a group of like-minded individuals in the 10 Day Challenge.  Click here to sign up! https://go.lifeoptimizationgroup.com/10day-video-training   •  Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E368 Ego | One Man’s Opinion On What Drives Our Psyche

Let me preface this by saying I’m not a Psychiatrist, Psychologist, and I don’t hold any specialized degrees.  This episode about what drives every decision we make and everything we do is solely based on things I read and personal beliefs.  What’s strange about the ego is that the things that bother us the most tend to be the things we want the most in our own lives. The ego also tends to hold onto things from our past out of fear of loss, even if that thing from the past no longer serves us.  Listen to find out how an unhealthy ego can be your downfall, but a healthy ego can propel you to heights you never imagined. •  To alter the course of your life, join a group of like-minded individuals in the 10 Day Challenge.  Click here to sign up! https://go.lifeoptimizationgroup.com/10day-video-training   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

News flash.  I’ve been lying to you the whole time.  Shocking based on my past, right? To ease your fear, I can promise that it’s not what you think.  I’m speaking on the fact that I actually do have this personal development space figured out.

I’ve pounded this message home over and over again on this podcast.  Consistency is the key to accomplishing anything. As we sit a full year after starting this podcast, I must admit that I’ve been lying to you.  I haven’t put out content for 365 straight days. In today’s episode, I briefly look back at how far things have come over the past 365 episodes and how much I’ve changed as a person.  More importantly, I take a look ahead at what’s to come.

E364 Ryan & Lindsay - Lessons From The Weekend | When The Greatest Plans Don’t Happen

It’s no secret by now. You probably realize that Lindsay and I pride ourselves on living a challenge based lifestyle.  There might even be the self-created perception that all we do is go-go-go 100% of the time. I’m here to breakdown that notion once and for all.  After being at the office late Friday night and sleeping in Saturday morning, the plans we had for the weekend started to erode. Today we venture into the land of documentaries, discussions with divided households, detoxes, and so much more.  Listen to find out why sometimes life lines up perfectly when things fall apart.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

The universe works in mysterious ways.  Have you ever thought about the events that need to take place in order to create a “coincidence?”  It’s truly mind boggling. In today’s episode I unravel one of these divine occurrences that recently happened in my life.  It was the meeting of past and present when an old friend from nearly 15 years ago unknowingly met a former client and friend of mine.  Listen to see what happens when the stories of my past and present collide and why nothing in this world truly happens by chance.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E361 Lessons From Fasting | Unique Revelations From Not Eating Food

Where in your life is something so readily available that you’re currently taking it for granted?  Whether it’s family, a well-paying job, or our health, it usually tends to be the things that are closest to us.  For me I recently discovered my thing was food. From fast food binges to eating too quickly, I took the accessibility for granted.  I wasn’t truly taking the time to appreciate what was going into my body. After spending a couple days fasting during a detox, my entire perspective on food shifted.  Listen to find out why that’s the case and why depriving yourself of anything will only grow your appreciation.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E360 Your Brand Matters | Why The World Needs YOU

When looking at social media and seeing all of the polished people and pretty pictures, it’s easy to feel like you don’t have enough.  It’s easy to feel like everyone has more money, a better body, a better looking spouse, a nicer car, and so on. It’s easy to think that every story has been told, but the truth is no one’s told your story and no one can tell it like you.  Whether you realize it or not, people want to hear your truth. Why? Because your truth is relatable. Your truth humanizes you. Let’s be real, my truth is why you’re listening to this very podcast. Today I’m going to dig deep into why sharing your truth and honesty is the only way to build your brand.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E359 Black Or White | Is It A Hell Yes Or A Hell No?

Are you trapped in the gray space?  I’m talking about the area in life where no actual answer exists.  It’s the place that ultimately destroys us, because instead of owning ‘yes’ or ‘no’ we find ourselves stuck in the’ maybes'. It's the land of lost dreams, lost hope, and lost time.  Committing one way or the other will at the very least solidify an outcome. You either ask the girl out or you don’t. You’ll either buy the car or you won’t. Making a decision gives you the opportunity to assess the results and make an adjustment moving forward.  Living in the gray only leads to doubt and fear. Today I’m going to explain to you how I got stuck in the gray and what you can do if you find yourself there.   We only have so many decisions in us each and every day.  Consciously or subconsciously, we are constantly in the process of making decisions.     Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

Most of us start new endeavors with the best intentions.  Even with strong intentions, it can be easy to venture off the desired path.  Looking back I realize there was a stretch of consecutive episodes where I made several asks for you to either join a group, come to an event, or sign-up for coaching.  Most recently, I recorded Wayne Dyer week as a complete cop-out. I’m not afraid to admit it. I was busy with the event and saw it as a way to knock out a bunch of episodes.  Guess what? I got called out on it.

Sometimes it’s hard to find the correct words to title a podcast.  If it’s not obvious at this point, today was a challenge. It’s no secret by now that I recently hosted an intense experience for 12 special men.  After reviewing some of the posts on the group message board, I was once again overcome with immense gratitude. While I hoped this event would make an impact, admittedly I had no idea what would happen.  To witness these men continually grow and experience wins over the past couple weeks has been nothing short of incredible.

E354 Power Of Intention | When Declaration Creates Attraction

Journaling has been a powerful tool in my life for the last several years.  Little did I know how powerful it truly was. While preparing for the Life Optimization Experience, I stumbled upon an old journal of mine.  Incredibly, within this journal was a 3.5-year-old plan to create an intense, immersive event in Columbus, OH that would change people’s lives.  I’d like to say that the Life Optimization Experience was precisely laid out in this journal, but that would be a lie.

Not only did the event turn out better than expected, but I learned a rather important lesson in the process.  While the event was put on to help other people, ultimately the experience was for myself.

E352 Wayne Dyer Week Part 10 | True Wisdom Is Avoiding All Thoughts That Weaken You

What are you thinking right now?  Is that thought helping or hurting you?  Most of the thoughts that weaken us are derived from two sources:  shame and guilt. Hanging onto shame and guilt over events from the past do nothing but bring us down.  When we’re stuck in the shame and guilt of a past event, we never have the opportunity to live in the present moment.  What’s beautiful about all of this? The things that you’ve done don’t have to define the person that you are.

Have you ever had someone question your motives?  A little over a year ago I decided to dive head first into coaching.  To say I received push-back is a bit of an understatement, and the same can be said for Lindsay.  People questioned our credentials, asked us who we thought we were, and probably hoped we didn’t succeed. Friends, family, it truly didn’t matter.   As we sit here today, it’s amazing to see the progress we’ve made over the past year, how the opinions of friends and family are beginning to change, and exciting new opportunities on the horizon,   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

Have you ever said to yourself “I have a right to be upset because of the way I’ve been treated?”  In all likelihood we’ve all said this or at least heard someone else say it.

E346 Wayne Dyer Week Part 6 | You Can't Solve A Problem With The Same Mind You Used To Create It

Without a doubt you’ve probably heard this saying before.  No matter how big or small the problem, it’s literally impossible to solve it without evolution.  Perhaps the most incredible implication of this is that all we truly have to do to change our lives is to change the attitude we have about ourselves.  While this most certainly isn’t easy, it is absolutely possible. Today we’re going to explore how tapping into your spirituality can provide the fuel to change your mind and ultimately your life.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E345 Wayne Dyer Week Part 5 | Why Giving Up Your History Will Impact The Rest Of Your Life

Everyone reading this has at one time been a victim to your personal history.  Far too many of us hold onto our past without realizing the implications. What we don’t see is that holding onto the past is merely a justification of our present circumstances.  The fact is that our past doesn’t have to be what drives us forward. We have the power to disconnect from our past and use the present moment to propel our progress. Join me today as we discover how to disconnect from your history and live in the now.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E344 Wayne Dyer Week Part 4 | Embrace The Silence

As the saying goes, silence is golden.  In a world filled with noise, silence is what brings us back to the source.  Silence is what actually makes music so powerful because otherwise it’d just be one continuous noise.  So how do we find silence in our own life? Perhaps the most powerful and easiest way to start is through meditation.  Join me today as we journey into the silence and discover how you can take advantage of the silence in your own life.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E343 Ryan & Lindsay - A Different Perspective | A Woman's Perspective On A Transformative Experience

By now most of you probably realize we had our first ever Life Optimization Experience last weekend.  While I’ve shared some pieces of what I experienced throughout the weekend and will continue to do so in the coming weeks, I thought it’d be great to hear from the other side.  Today we’re going to hear my wife’s perspective on the weekend, her role in the event, and how I was able to throw yet another loop into our relationship. We also tackle limiting beliefs surrounding self-improvement, both in my own life and in the lives of others.  For all the women that are ready to transform their life, be sure to listen and shoot me an email to ryan@lifeoptimizationgroup.com that simply says “I’m In."   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E342 Wanye Dyer Week Pt 3 | Why You Can't Give Away What You Do Not Have

It’s human nature to want to help other people.  However, most of us try to give love to others when we don’t actually love ourselves.  Why is this a problem? If you give love out of lack, that’s exactly what you’ll receive in return.  When we focus on developing positive inner thoughts and respect for ourselves, inevitably this is what we’ll attract in our lives.   Today I’m going to focus on how to become aware of what you don’t have, how to backfill with positive thoughts, and how to ultimately attract whatever you want in life.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E340 Wanye Dyer Week Pt 2 | Don't Let Yourself Die With Music Still Inside Of You

For many of us, the music that lives within us has been muffled over time.  The outside world and the logic based side of our brain have buried our passions.  We all have things that we are destined to create. Whether it’s podcasts, books, paintings, or whatever it may be, our purpose on Earth is to express what lies deep in our hearts.  So how do we get back in touch with our soul and let our music play? Stop letting other people guide your decisions. Listen to find out how.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E339 - Wayne Dyer Week Pt 1 | Be Open To Everything And Attached To Nothing

First things first; this is not a return of weekly book reviews.  If you’ve listened to the podcast recently, you’d know that through a serendipitous occasion Dr. Wayne Dyer was brought into my life.  Rather than share one thing and move on to the next podcast, I’ve decided to dedicate the next 10 days to share Wayne’s impactful teachings and how they’ve affected my life.  On today’s episode, I touch on the lesson of being open to everything and attached to nothing. If you master this particular lesson, you’ll find yourself letting go of things that don’t serve you and welcoming in new and exciting experiences.  Listen to find out how.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

Have you ever used this phrase:  “If I can just get __________, then everything will be OK”?  Fill in the blank with anything you want. It could be a new job, a new car, a new house, a new woman or man, and so on.  Whatever that thing is, we’ve all used that phrase at some point in time. If you haven’t figured it out by now, let me fill you in.  Problems will never go away, they only manifest themselves in different forms. Today I’m going to discuss why this is undoubtedly the case, how you can look internally to deal with this issue, and why new problems tend to mean that something is going right in your life   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E337 - Mirror | When Other People Reveal Your True Reflection

Have you ever talked about someone who wasn’t there to defend themselves?  If you are to believe that we are all connected, it is imperative that you realize what we see in other people is a reflection of ourselves.  This is significant because it means that if we’re bothered by the actions, thoughts, or behaviors of someone else, most of the time it’s you projecting something that lives in you internally.  That might be tough to come to terms with depending on what is running through your head. Today i’m focusing on how to recognize these triggers and what you can do to cut them down when they arrive.     Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E336 - Go By Stopping | Why Going Harder Isn't Always Smarter

In the pursuit of reaching greater heights in our lives, there’s this desire and necessity to push ourselves to the absolute limits.  When does all of this become going too far? When we put our future commitments to ourselves in jeopardy. As I woke up this morning to head to the boxing gym, I just wasn’t feeling it.  I could have forced myself to go, but I had to stop. I had to stop so that I didn’t put myself in a position where I couldn’t show up as I needed to. Where in your life are you going too hard when you really need to stop and regroup?  Listen today to find out how one of my clients applied this principle and how you can do the same.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E332 - Growth Over Comfort | Why Growth Is Painful But Comfort Kills

As human beings, we are wired to seek comfort.  This is unfortunate because the greatest growth comes on the other side of pain.  Take this very podcast for example. It took what seemed like forever for me to actually ask people for reviews and ratings.  Why? I was afraid. I was afraid that I was alone. I was afraid that no one was listening. I was afraid that no one cared. Once I finally stepped up and made an ask, my fears went away.  People started sharing the show. The reviews began trickling in. All of this because I got a little uncomfortable and did something I didn’t really want to do. Are you holding yourself back because you’re content with being comfortable?  Tune in to see how becoming uncomfortable will change your life.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E331 - Focus | Time To Zig When You Think I’m Going To Zag

Greatness lies within each and everyone of us.  So why doesn’t everyone achieve it? It simply comes down to focus, or a lack thereof.  Those who approach their life with focus will push the ball forward each day. They might not make a monumental achievement, but they will always keep progressing.  When it all comes down to it, focus allows you to make the most efficient use of your time. That’s true whether you’re in the gym or the office. Today I share a story of how a marketer wasted my time, and how a small amount of focused could have changed the entire experience.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E330 - It’s Time For An Audit | How To Remove People And Things That Don’t Serve You

It’s likely at some point in your life you’ve heard the quote “You’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”  While there’s certainly some validity to this, it’s not all that concrete. You’re actually the average of the people and habits you engage with on a daily basis.  Yes, that means people you follow on Facebook, the music you listen to, the gym you attend, and the place that you work. Literally everything that touches your five senses needs to be audited on a regular basis to ensure that what you do serves you in the moment and is helping you progress.  Listen to see how I’ve approached this concept in my own life.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

Given the past between Lindsay and I, I’m a bit surprised that this topic hasn’t come up before.  This actually came as a request from a client of mine who was seeking some input on how to look past or come to terms with certain aspects of someone’s personality or character.  Many of us make the mistake of trying to change someone instead of either accepting them for who they are or searching for someone that better suits our needs. Today Lindsay and I talk about approaching the topic of change in a relationship, how to spot incompatibilities, and how to focus on what brings you the most joy in your partner.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E326 - I See You | Find Yourself To Find Where You Belong

Belonging is essential to the human existence.  We all need a tribe that understands us in order for us to excel, no exceptions.  Without a tribe we lack emotional support, we lack people that have skills to lift us up in business and relationships, and we limit our own progress because we simply can’t handle something.  So what’s the biggest issue when seeking out a tribe? Most of us do so before we ever know ourselves or what we want in life. This inevitably means we wind up surrounding ourselves with people that don’t serve where we want to go.  On today’s episode, you’re going to learn how to find yourself so you better know how to build a tribe of people who will support you.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

Have you ever had a moment in your life where things seem to happen effortlessly?  A time where the pieces to the puzzle align on their own? Some might claim it to be following intuition, some might claim it to be God, and others still might claim it to be pure chance.  Whatever it is, something has been sending me messages over the course of the last week. From an unexplained book showing up on my front porch to searching for old Tony Robbins CDs, things have just connected.  The beauty of synchronicity is that when you learn how to harness the power of it, you will open up yourself to infinite possibilities in your life.

E324 - Time Is Not On Your Side | Achieve More, Do Less

The way communication has shifted over the past 10 years has constantly drained our attention and our time.  With text, email, and voicemail we are immediately accessible at any given time. For some reason, we’ve decided that we not only need to check the message immediately but that we also need to respond.  Not only are we distracted from what we were doing, but now we’re getting pulled into other people’s problems and dilemmas. If you take a true audit on phone and social media usage, I think most of you would be shocked at the hours your wasting.  I know I was.

E323 - Try | In The Words Of A Famous Philosopher, “Just Do It”

The words we use and the way we speak have a quantifiable impact on what we can achieve.  It’s honestly incredible how our vocabulary has the ability to increase or limit our success.  Take the word “try” for instance. How many of us say we’re going to try to do something? I’d imagine most of your hands just went up.  The fact is when we tell ourselves we’re going to “try” to do something we’ve already given ourselves a way out. If we “try” to do something, we aren’t committing to doing anything at all, likely because we don’t want to do whatever we’re trying in the first place.  Today we’re going to explore the power of doing and why making a firm decision will greatly impact how you show up in the world.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

Facts.  Feelings.  Focus. Fruit.  Relevant. That simple formula that changed the course of my life.  I’m not here to stake claim to this. This is something that came to me through the teachings of Garrett J. White and Wakeup Warrior.  If we’re getting real with ourselves, most of us get trapped in the feelings of a situation and never actually get to the facts.

E319 - All The Gym Bitching | Talking Behind Backs Is Nothing But Crap

Have you ever talked poorly about someone who isn’t around to defend themselves?  Talking behind someone’s back is a behavior that is deeply rooted in insecurity. I’m not throwing stones.  I’ve been extremely guilty of it in my past. The truth is this behavior doesn’t help anyone. The other day when I was working out, I couldn’t help but to overhear a group of women talking very loudly in another area of the gym.  To be clear, they weren’t even talking, it sounded more like they were yelling at each other. Pretty soon I realized they were talking about someone or a group of people that weren’t present. The old me would’ve ignored it and just walked out of the gym.  Listen to find out the suggestion I gave to the group of women, and how the same advice is sure to benefit your own life.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

As some of you may know, my dog Zeus was diagnosed with cancer a few months ago.  Unfortunately the chemo is no longer working and there are no more treatment options. Though I know I must prepare myself for Zeus’ impending death, I know it’s not going to make it much easier.  The truth of the matter is that beyond death, we all have inevitabilities in our lives.

E317 - No Is A Complete Sentence | Why Two Letters Mean Everything

What if I told you I have the magic solution to solve all of your problems?  You see, by default most of us are programmed to say yes to everything. Upon further inspection, the real culprit is a deep rooted fear of rejection.  We say yes to things we don’t want to do because we worry that saying no will make others look down upon us. In reality, an inability to say no to people results in committing to a bunch of things that you don’t really want to do, leaves you with no time to care for yourself, and makes you show up as less than you actually are.  The truth is that the word “No” is actually one of the biggest indicators of a positive ego and a self-confident individual. Tune in today to find out how to harness the power of this magic word and how it will truly revolutionize your life. Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E316 - Orange Chair | So We Meet Again

Where in your life are you missing simple solutions to problems?  The truth of the matter is there are frequently answers in front of our face that are so incredibly obvious we somehow remain oblivious.  For me it involved an orange office chair, but for you it might not be so simple. After dealing with this shoddy office chair for over a year, I knew a change needed to be made.  The problem is, I didn’t really want to go shop for a chair. My wife made a suggestion to use the office chair from our house, but I had created such a story surrounding the chair I couldn’t see the obvious answer.  Listen to hear the resolution of my problem and how you can use shed yourself of your stories to find the obvious answer.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E315 - Ryan & Lindsay How To Structure A Relationship | Create The Greatest Possibility Of Happiness and Success

As these shows with my wonderful wife have progressed, it seems more and more of you have been reaching out to ask us how we not only managed to get through the rocky times, but also manage to find success on the backside.  If it’s not obvious by now, we took a rather unconventional path to arrive to where we are today. Today Lindsay and I take a deep dive on how to construct a strong relationship from the foundation. Bear in mind, some of this advice is based on pure logic, something which we completely threw to the wind from the start.  Either way, this show is chock full of valuable, practical advice that you can put into play immediately. This is a must listen for anyone in a relationship or coming out of a relationship.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E314 - Consistency | Greatness Can Only Be Accomplished With Constant Effort

Have you ever set your sights on a goal and actually accomplished it?  If so, what can you pinpoint as the secret to your success? More often than not, the answer to that question is going to be consistency.  Whether you want to get in shape, build a business, get in touch with your spirituality, etc., it takes concerted effort day in and day out in order achieve your goal.  Perhaps the best example I can give is with this very podcast. When this started almost a year ago, the main goal I had was to get out my truth. The daily aspect was just a challenge to keep myself consistent.  Over time that consistency has caused the podcast to continue to grow and open up new opportunities. Today I’m here to discuss those very opportunities and how you can tap into the power of consistency in your own life.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E314 - Moving Day | When Doing It Yourself Is a Waste Of Time And Money

Ikea.  How can a single word be so polarizing?  For some people this name brings shrieks of joy.  For others? Four letter words, broken furniture, and tension amongst friends and family.  A couple of years ago we were asked to help move Lindsay’s cousin into college. As with most invitations to help someone move in, I wasn’t exactly jumping up and down with joy.  After hours of moving and several more hours of putting together furniture, it was clear I was in the exact situation I didn’t want to be in. Listen to find out how a little bit of prep and planning would have not only saved time and money but also created a enjoyable experience for everyone involved.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E312 - Commitment | When You Want To Quit, Double Down And Go For It

Commitments to ourselves are the easiest to break, but they are the most damaging long-term.  I’m going to be honest, I wanted no part of recording this episode. After working a long day of constant phone calls, I’m beat.  The reality of the situation is that with three events coming up within the next month-and-a-half, I can’t deviate from the content schedule we developed or we’ll be in a jam.  Where is this true in other parts of your life?

E311 - H.A.L.T. | Overcome Being Hungry, Angry, Lonely, and Tired

Believe it or not, we’re all playing a game.  In this game of life, we’re generally triggered by one of four things:  hunger, anger, loneliness, and fatigue. In essence what these things represent are basic human needs that can prevent you from becoming the greatest version of yourself if they aren’t dealt with.  If you’re constantly hungry, angry, lonely, and tired you’re never going to have the time, energy, or resources to focus on the things you really want to do. What’s the solution? Finding balance.

Perhaps it’s because of the podcast or my social media following, but as of late I’ve been inundated with people telling me they want to be a coach.  It’s great. If you have a goal of helping people find the highest version of themselves, more power to you. The question is, do you have your shit figured out?  Without alignment in your own life it’s going to be impossible for you to be able to sit face-to-face with a client and actually help someone.

Doing the right thing isn’t always easy.  In fact, many times doing the right thing is the most difficult thing you’ll ever have to do.  If you’ve been a listener of the podcast over the last six months or so, you’d know that my pitbull Zeus has been battling lymphoma.  After several rounds of chemo treatments, it became clear we had to let nature run its course. For quite some time I held onto hope that Zeus would make it through.  I wanted to hold onto him as long as possible. Unfortunately, his condition had progressed to a point where our family decided we had to put him down. Though it was difficult it was the right thing to do to keep Zeus from suffering.  As we work through losing a friend, listen and find out why it’s always the right time to do the right thing, no matter the circumstances.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E303 - The Push You May Not Want, But The One You Need | It’s Time To Take The Leap

When we take a leap based on our emotions, it feels good in the moment.  As time passes, we tend to question our decision. Inevitably many of us back out.  I can’t even begin to count how many times I talked myself out of things in the past.  Why? Because it feels safe. You start planting doubt and fear in your brain. You start asking yourself what if this isn’t worth it?  What if I fail? What if it’s a waste of time? We’ve all done this at one point or another. How do we overcome this fear and doubt?

E302 - Imitation Is The Best Form of Flattery | From Triggered To Thankful

The other day I was scrolling through some podcasts and was thrown off a bit.  In front of my eyes was something quite familiar. It was a podcast cover that is almost identical to my very own.  Now I’m of the belief that everything’s been done before and most things are variations of something that already exists, but it still appeared to be a blatant copy.  Nevertheless, I tried to let it go. Sometime after, I hop on Instagram only to scroll across a post that looks exactly like mine. Come to find out it’s the exact same person!  Now this is no coincidence. I’m not going to lie, I was triggered. After re-framing the incident I came to see just how blessed I am.

Giving ourselves a break can be difficult.  Even though I coach other people on the importance of of holding time and space for themselves, I sometimes struggle to do the same for myself.  On the other hand, Lindsay has absolutely no issue with carving out time to fill her cup. So the question is, what stories are you telling yourself in regards to holding time and space for yourself?  When you become aware of these stories then you can start focusing on your own needs.

Like any young boy I was curious, particularly about the female anatomy.  What seemed innocent at the time wound up creating a long-term pattern of habits with numerous negative consequences. The power of pornography is no joke.  Today I provide a few somewhat humorous stories from my past as well as some shocking statistics as it relates to the long-term effects that porn has mentally and physically.  This is most certainly a wild ride.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E288 - Stop Being So Biased | Why Your Assumptions Are Limiting Your Potential

Where are you being limited by something you assume to be true?  When I first started coaching, I had a very clear limiting bias. I thought my content and my methodology was only for men.  If you go back to the first 30+ episodes of this very podcast, you’ll hear the exact same thought process coming out of my mouth.  One day I received a reality check in the form of a review from a female listener. I wish I could say that this changed my ways, but the pattern interrupt didn’t come until later.  Listen to find out what changed my mind and why it’s not too late for you to change.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E287 - Ryan & Lyndsay - OPO | Why Only Your Opinion Matters

No matter how mentally strong we may believe ourselves to be, we all have have the ability to succumb to the opinions of other people.  For any long-time listener of the show, after all the cheating, lying, steroid abuse, and outright deceit, Lindsay’s family and friends didn’t exactly have the highest opinion of me.  So how did we make it after after this time? Hear Lindsay and I dig deep into why she stayed, the confidence she had in herself, and what we’ve done to silence the opinions of other people.   Are you looking to connect further with a group of like-mind people?

E283 - Digging Like A Dog | Why Everyone And Everything Needs A Purpose

While attending a conference this past week, one of the speakers spoke about his labradors.  He said that when labradors don’t have a purpose they default to digging holes.  Immediately this reminded me about a very situation line of thought our dog trainer shared with us regarding our pit bulls.  What’s crazy to me is how this idea relates to all of us, myself included.  When we live life without a purpose, we tend to find ourselves digging ditches we can’t get out of.  On the other hand, when we have a mission to strive for we can build mountains.  Are you digging holes or are you building?   Questions, comments, requests?

E281 Your Habits Are Your Habitat | How Your Daily Actions Create The Life You Live

It’s easy to think that the small things we do on a daily basis don’t have an effect on the bigger picture that is our lives.  In reality,  our daily habits are the foundation on which we build success.  If you’re going to bed late, sleeping in, ignoring your fitness, and eating nothing but junk, it’s simply impossible for you to perform at your potential.  Listen to see how you can build a foundation of great habits and how my own habits have changed over the years.   Questions, comments, requests?

E279: You Should Quit Working | Why Hustle And Grind Is A Waste Of Time

Proliferated by social media, the hustle-grind mentality is rampant these days. I’m not against working hard. In fact, hard work is essential to reach any level of success. Overworking ourselves is a bit different. For so long I thought that in order to get to where I wanted to go, I had to literally work my face off. For a brief period of time, I’ll even say that it was true. Pretty soon I realized that I was working myself into the ground and that while I was working hard, it wasn’t efficient or sustainable.

E278 Decisions | Your Inability To Make A Quick Decision Is Limiting Your Exponential Growth

The decision-making process is perhaps the most time sucking process in our daily lives.  How so?  Sometimes it leads to procrastination and takes us places we never needed to go in the first place.  The inability to make a decision ultimately leads to self-doubt and a can lead to a lack of confidence.  The wild thing this that it happens for no reason.  We all have a tool called intuition that is there to help us make decisions.  Today I demonstrate how I got out of whack in my decision making and what you can do to re-align.   Questions, comments, requests?

E276: Are You A Business Man Or...? | Before You Judge Others, Take A Look At Yourself

When is talking behind someone’s back actually talking behind your own? 100% of the time. This might be a confusing idea to some, but I can profess the truth from my own personal experience. When we judge and gossip about other people, it’s actually a reflection of our own insecurities. It limits our ability to grow as individuals because we are operating from a state of lack. How can we combat this? When we find ourselves judging other people, we must take a deep look within ourselves.   Questions, comments, requests?

E275 You Can't Have The Shine Without The $h!T

Even the most positive situations have a healthy dose of $hit attached to them.  By default, we focus so intently on all the terrible things that happened that lose sight of any positive.  This has been especially true with my relationship with my father.  If you’re a long time listener of the show, it’s no secret that my dad and I simply didn’t get along.  In fact, until relatively recently I blamed a lot of my issues on him.  Even through the pain, it’s hard not to reevaluate our relationship and recognize the gifts my dad has given me.  Is there a relationship or situation where you can say the same?   Questions, comments, requests?

Our situation is of our own creation.  It’s easy looking back to see that the infidelity not only affected my personal life, it became a bigger distraction and altered how I showed up in the business world.  One evening, everything came to a head in front of my apartment.  Upon returning home from work, I see all four women standing there.  This wasn’t a friendly gathering of long lost buddies.  My untruthful ways had caught up to me.  What ensued can only be described as one of the darkest moments in my life.  Listen to find out why there’s always a way to find the light, you just have to be willing to listen.   Questions, comments, requests?

I’ll be successful when I  have ________.  How many times have you heard that or said it yourself?  All of us have said it at least once, and if we’re being honest with ourselves we’ve said it more than we care to admit.  Why is this problematic?  Because it takes happiness and success out of our own hands and places it in the hands or someone or something else.  In order to achieve success we must first become very real with ourselves on what we want.  Now comes the hard part; putting in the work day-in-and-day-out to create real change.  Today I’m going to explain why building one day at a time and focusing on hitting singles is a sure-fire way to success.   Questions, comments, requests?

Instead of realizing the huge goals are in fact long-term goals, they get frustrated and quit when they don’t see immediate results.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, details matter. As some of you may know, along with the podcast I have my own coaching practice.

E261 Down For The Cause

Lessons can come when you least expect it, even at a child’s Christmas concert. At some point in all our lives, we learn how to judge other people. Why or how this happens is somewhat difficult to understand. While attending Gianna’s concert a couple weeks ago, I was taught a powerful lesson in the importance of withholding judgement. This lesson was so powerful that it forced me to investigate some areas of my life where I’m unconsciously judging others. Where are you falsely judging people in your life?

E258 Children's Books

What are we teaching our children? Traditional schools teach things like math, science and English, but few teach true life skills. As a last minute gift idea, I decided I wanted to buy my daughter Gianna a book about managing money. When I arrived at the bookstore, I was shocked. To my amazement, they didn’t carry any children’s books about money. Upon recognizing this gap, it got me wondering what other skills might be getting overlooked for the next generation.

E255 Why Not Me?

Who do you know that’s more deserving of what you want than you? Sometimes without even knowing it, we place extreme limitations on ourselves. We look at the success of others and assume they have some advantage that we don’t or that they deserve it more, which subconsciously tells us we aren’t worthy of what we desire. This self-defeating attitude kills our dreams before they even get started. In 2019, I’m throwing down the gauntlet. You’re worthy and I’m here to tell you why.

E254 Tactical Training Part 7: Original Incident

When is your current state of thinking not actually your thinking? It’s not your thinking when it is dictated by events in your distant past. Frequently, our daily behavioral patterns are forged in adolescence. These patterns are so engrained in our subconscious that they become automatic until acted upon by an outside force. Today I challenge you to look into your past and unearth the old stories holding you back from becoming the best version of you.

E253 Tactical Training Part 6: Personal Hierarchy

How long have you been told to put others first? If you’re religious, or at least a Christian, you’ve certainly been told to put God first.

E252 Ryan & Lindsay - Lessons From Motherhood

It’s not so easy being a mom. Frequently they are the most under-appreciated people in the world. Where dad’s like to look out for themselves, mom’s are always looking out for other people.

Today we get to learn how Lindsay deals with the daily challenges of motherhood, and how I’d deal with the same situations if the tables were turned.

E251 Tactical Training Part 5: Awareness

Your perception of your life is what dictates your reality. How can up your awareness and open yourself up to the vast possibilities that exist around you? By finding someone who is in the position you’d like to be. Whether it’s a mentor, a coach, or simply patterning your habits after someone successful, sometimes we need to look outside ourselves to see that our dreams are actually possible. Increasing our awareness also allows us to better judge what does and doesn’t serve us.

The places we least want to go offer the biggest possibility of growth. We bury painful memories for a reason, most frequently because we don’t have the capacity to deal with them. Today I’m going to walk you through a tool called The Pit. The purpose of The Pit is to find a moment in your dark side and bring it to the light. How do we do that? By confronting it head on. This is likely to be painful, but it will absolutely be transformative.

E248 Tactical Training Part 3: Goal Setting

Without a goal, how can you ever expect to get to where you want to go? It’s simply not possible. When it comes to goal setting, the problem for many of us is that we set time based goals based on external things. What makes it even worse is that we tend to unconsciously set goals that aren’t even for our own fulfillment. Today I explain how to set goals that come from within and why it’s important to create action steps within every goal.
25/12/1824m 10s

E247 Tactical Training Part 2 - Finding Your Why

For so many of us, our “Why” has become something other than ourselves. Our “Why’ is the new house, the new car, the new job, the raise, or any other type of external validation you can think of. I’m here today to challenge that type of thinking and explain to you why it can be detrimental to have a “Why” that doesn’t directly serve you. Questions, comments, requests?

E239 And?

At some point in our life, we come to a decision where we believe it has to be one thing or the other.

E238 Ryan & Lindsay - The Real

Social media, the internet, and media in general have an incredible power to create false perceptions. It’s quite easy for us to consume one piece of content and extrapolate it to mean something entirely different. After an episode a couple weeks ago where Lindsay and I shared a bit of a heated exchange, I received a lot of feedback from concerned listeners. Today Lindsay and I clear the air and discuss how we’ve moved on from that tense situation.

E237 Old School

As Einstein once said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.” At some point in our lives all of us have been ingrained in old ways of doing things.

In today’s episode, I’ll describe my situation, how I’ve learned from it, and offer up some strategies for how you can make change in your life.

E235 Keep It Simple

Our brain is wired for complexity. Nature and society has programmed us to believe our problems are far more complicated than they are. This creates fear and prevents or delays us from taking action.

E234 It's An Imperfect Game

Perfection is paralyzing.  Even though it’s impossible to obtain, many of us spend our entire lives trying to reach perfection.  In today’s social media environment it’s easy to look at other people, assume  their life is perfect, and then compare your world to theirs.  Does this comparison ever make you feel good?  Your best performance in the game of life can only be decided by you.  Don’t waste your time chasing something unattainable.      Questions, comments, requests?

E233 You Need Help!

If you seek out therapy you are broken. Where have you heard this before? The fact is, this has been a long held belief in our society for quite some time. In reality everyone needs help, but we might not be aware of it. Men seem to seek help when the world around them is crashing down, while women seem to be more proactive. Today I’m going to dig into some of these pre-conceived notions by relating an experience of my own. Tune In!

E232 Time Bound

Why do so many of us struggle to accomplish something? Often it’s because we aren’t making time bound commitments to ourselves and others.

E230 Time For Change

Each and everyone one of us has at least one thing in our lives that needs changed immediately, but most of us procrastinate and wind up in a situation we don’t don’t want to be in.  That was me about two weeks ago.  When the first bit of winter weather hit Ohio I was ill prepared.  Why?  Because i was driving a car I needed to get rid of months ago.  Listen to find out how my own inaction made me realize it was time for a change.   Questions, comments, requests?

E228 Time

Time is the only resource we can never get back.  In today’s world of social media and instant gratification, it’s so easy to pick up our phones and unconsciously fill time.  I’m just as guilty as anyone.  The truth is, we do it because we haven’t set the intention to make better use of our time.  Instead of scheduling time to find a dream job, go to the gym, or anything else productive, we aimlessly squander our most precious resource.  Listen today to see how we can take back our time.   Questions, comments, requests?

E224 Ryan & Lindsay - Why Men And Women Can't Be Friends

Simply put, men and women have different mindsets when it comes to the opposite sex. It all boils down to how we’re wired. Women have no problem distancing themselves from men and maintaining a plutonic relationship, but the opposite can’t be said. In my experience, if a man is keeping a woman around, they’re hoping to one day sleep with them. Listen to hear mine and Lindsay’s discussion on this topic. Be prepared, this episode takes some crazy turns!
