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.”

148. Dominick Quartuccio: How To Lead With Vulnerability and Step Into Healthy Masculinity

Ep. 148
“As men, we are so hell-bent on protecting our masculinity because - this runs to the root of an identity - if you’re not a man, then you’re weak, you’re ostracized, you’re not valued. And then, you’re on your own. You’re left to kind of perish. This runs so deeply inside of us that we don’t recognize the game that we’re playing, which is “protect my man card.”You may have noticed a recent trend where people are talking about the patriarchy, toxic masculinity, and what it means to be a man.These confronting conversations are forcing us to look more closely at masculine and feminine dynamics and the healthy role that each plays in establishing harmonious societies. As a result, there are a growing number of men who are willing to explore the journey required to step into healthier versions of manhood.As my brother Dominick Quartuccio explains, there are a lot of little boys running around in the bodies of men! The reason? Conventional schooling and society don’t prioritize teaching the transition into healthy masculinity.But if we’re willing to lean into our vulnerability and listen to our heart’s whispers, not only will we experience profound healing BUT we have an opportunity to unleash the true power of our divine masculine into the world.“The number one fear, like subconscious fear, that is controlling men’s lives that they don’t know about, is this fear of emasculation.”In this powerful conversation, Dominick and I explore what healthy masculinity looks like. We also explore the challenges men face while protecting their ‘man card’. And as you’ll hear, cultivating the confidence to listen to your heart in the midst of all the noise is a powerful way to transform your life - especially during 2020.Dominick is a leader in the field of healthy masculinity and a man who walks his talk. His commitment to do the inner work always blows me away. As a coach, author, and advocate, Dominick helps men discover and live the Great Man Within.
