Stay Grounded with Raj Jana


39. Dr. Steve Young - When One Billion People Need YOUR Help

“If you just work with amazing people, helping a billion isn’t as crazy as it sounds.”

I first heard this guest speak at a recent event and I was hooked immediately.

Dr. Steve Young has, what many would call, a crazy goal.

In fact he calls his mission to help a BILLION people love their way to building their greatest legacy by providing the tools and systems for success his ‘moonshot’ goal.

But as you’ll hear in this episode, it’s not as crazy as it sounds.

Since 2001 Dr. Steve has personally healed over 7 thousand people and influenced countless more indirectly. Using functional medicine and drawing upon science-based principles, Steve helps people resolve their physical ailments so they can return to health and high energy.

He’s all about the process - not the hacks. Specifically, Steve inspires people to transform their relationship with food so they can regain control of their body and leverage health to live a happier life.

“We all have this ability of heightened intuition. Our reality is so much more than the five senses.

“How do I get my productivity in today in a way that is serving of my health and my happiness.”

But this episode is about so much more than food, nutrition and weight loss. Instead, we dig deeper into what drives Dr. Steve to do what he does.

Steve explains that how we do one thing is how we do everything.

In other words, whatever you’re doing with food, you’ll be doing with your work and relationships too. But obstacles are just opportunities. When you can transform your roadblocks into a new door, fear dissolves and a new path opens up.

So if you’d like to live to 150 and you’re ready to explore a new relationship with food, life, goals, and health, you’re going to love this deep conversation with Steve.

As well as practical tips, we also talk about tuning into the ‘magic’ that’s always there to guide you towards the life where maximum happiness awaits.

So listen in now and discover why Steve has become one of my favorite people!

“You want to have goals, but you need to practice taking off your blinders and being open to what I call magic.”

“Our brains have infinite wisdom. The power is in the question.”

  • What questions can people ask themselves to make better choices about their health and happiness? [24:23]

204. Raj Jana: Learning To Love & Forgive Your Shadow

Ep. 204
“The reason I’m willing to go into the deepest aspects of myself is because my soul, my heart is really craving safety.”This episode of Stay Grounded is my reflection for the month of October. Looking back, this month was themed in two core halves. During the first two weeks, I found myself exploring ways to elevate my communication skills. After some triggers in my relationship, it became clear that some of my methodologies were ineffective and disempowering. I know communication is a challenge for a lot of us. After all, we often learn shitty communication from shitty communicators!In this episode, I hope to share with you some insights and discoveries I made this month that could empower you too.Another huge theme was learning how to feel psychologically safe. The more I explore my own healing journey, the more I uncover deep, core wounds. Learning how to be OK with my imperfections and flaws was another big theme this month - and one I talk about in detail in this episode.“When I feel powerful it's because I feel safe in my body.”As usual, my dear friend Georgina El Morshdy is here to hold space and guide us as we navigate this conversation about authenticity, expressing your needs, and having the courage to be imperfectly you.Here are some of the key takeaways you’ll hear us discuss:The power of cultivating self-awareness at this point in our history.The role interpersonal relationships play in creating safety in your body.What it means to create psychological safety.Communication as a gateway to having your needs met.Deepening into my Human Design and learning how to be a Projector.The danger of mind reading and asking for words of affirmation.Allowing myself to be messy and imperfect.Exploring why we’re so afraid to feel.Creating space between our feelings and our reactions.And more...The monthly reflection episodes are a key part of my monthly routines and rituals. The more I’m able to use hindsight as a tool for amplified self-awareness, the more I’m able to release the things that aren’t mine - and reclaim the parts that are.It’s my hope that my reflection inspires you to deepen into your own.“The greatest levels of self-love are coming from me allowing myself to be seen and share what’s truly in my heart.”Contact Info:Raj’s detailsGeorgina’s - Instagram & Facebook.Summary/ Call to Action:We thrive on your feedback, so if you’ve enjoyed this show, please rate us and leave us a review.

Ep. 203
“This past year has been a masterclass in surrender.”How would you navigate your way through an experience where you lost your core business overnight?Earlier this year, Dom Quarticcio accidentally sent an email about porn he’d written for his men’s group to his corporate clients.That email made his reputation toxic to the point that all his contracts were cancelled and deposits were pulled from his bank account.During a sacred plant ceremony, Dom asked his soul the question. “What the f*ck just happened?”The answer was clear, powerful and specific…. “Hey, dude, you said you were really serious about helping 10 million men get on this path. You're straddling the fence and now you have no other choice. And you're welcome.”What happened next is a powerful story of what’s possible when you surrender to the wisdom of your soul and the calling of your heart.“When you find your center, you no longer have to worry about the tornado. When you got your center, that’s all you need.”Dominick Quartuccio is the founder of The Great Man Mastermind, a series of masterminds for men who are ready to stop lone-wolfing their lives.Dom co-hosts The Great Man Within Podcast and is an international keynote speaker on topics centering men’s personal development, such as high-performance habits, designing a purpose driven life and why men need community. He is also the author of two books: Design Your Future and On Purpose Leadership. His work has been featured in the New York Times, on NPR and the TEDx stage.In this episode, Dom and I explore:Learning to surrender so you can co-create with the universe.What happened when Dom sent an email about porn to the wrong list.How Dom navigates the dance between fear and freedom.Learning to trust there’s a bigger plan that the universe can see.Dom’s experience with Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way.The power of clearing your mind through ‘Morning pages”.COVID as the great accelerator.Getting to the source of what you want to feel.Creating safety to allow emotions to be explored.The boardroom of emotions & the four steps to emotional fluency.And more...Dom is always so candid about his journey and his experiences.
