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]

250. Raj Jana: My Eight Year Journey To Self Love & Liberation

Ep. 250
“Even though on paper I had all the markings of someone successful, I didn't feel it. That really confused me.” As a 250th episode special, I wanted to share all the lessons I’ve learned from investing multi-six figures and thousands of hours into my personal journey to create a life of alignment and liberation that I feel so grateful to be living today. When I started this podcast, I had no idea about the journey I was about to take. The journey to internal liberation isn’t easy. My life has changed entirely since releasing my first episode in 2017, but the path to this point has been riddled with the most extreme highs and lows. The game of BEING is confusing because it’s filled with guesswork, detours, and setbacks.But hindsight brings clarity. As I reflect over the past eight years (and the thousands of dollars and hours I invested), I’m clear on what worked and what didn’t. I’m now confident about what levers to pull and where to focus my time, energy, and resources so I can keep experiencing unshakeable confidence, freedom, clarity, and self-love. No one should have to invest as much as I have into healing our minds, bodies, and souls in order to experience wholeness. I believe it’s our birthright to feel good about who we are. We shouldn’t be living in a constant state of anxiety or fear. We should be learning how our nervous systems are wired from an early age so we can properly tend to it as we grow through life. It’s why I’ve decided to share my journey so far with you -- with no stones left unturned – so that you can see how a dedication to the “inner work” can lead to permanent shifts in your mental & emotional well-being.“The game of doing is very different from the game of being. Doing is about achievement, external validation, and making strides and progress in the world. The game of being is about the journey to your enoughness. It's the journey of self-love.”Key takeaways:How a book transformed my perspective of what’s possible. My quest to seek missing feelings through entrepreneurship - only to fall short of what I wanted. How a drive to infuse meaning & purpose into my side hustle birthed Stay Grounded. Forcing change through the game of DOing. External success will only take you so far. You’ll eventually hit a wall. Opening to my emotions through plant medicine. Breaking open to build myself up. Discovering what’s under the hood. Moving into the realm of root cause exploration. Differentiating between MY vision for my life and the vision that others had for my life. Unlocking mirror work through community-based healing. My Journey groups. Working with hypnotherapist Grace Smith. Ending a nine-year relationship and confronting uncomfortable truths about myself. Inner work has the answers, but it’s hard, expensive, and time-consuming. Inner work shouldn’t be for the privileged few with resources. It should be accessible and effective for EVERYONE. And that's what I'm excited to share with you all.On October 5th, I will be doing a teaching a live masterclass about a data-driven, heart-centered, and personalized approach to the inner work that removes confusion from the process altogether.

249. Trey & Grace Stinnett: Finding Flow Through Conscious Parenting

These philosophies have informed their parenting, too, empowering their children onto the path of authentic, self-aware living from a young age. Creating a life of flow and alignment can be part of our legacy, and in this episode, Trey & Grace share how to make that vision a reality. “I don't have any work to do. Instead, just go to work on whatever there is to be healed. Through that healing, everything else will just find its way into flow.” Key takeaways:What does flow mean? How Wealth Dynamics profiles help you get into your flow. Removing things I shouldn’t be doing so I can be more authentically me. The concept of deconditioning. The power of using frameworks and tools to know who you are. Empowering children through profiles and archetypes. Immersing children in an environment that cultivates a growth mindsetCreating an emotional platform for children to thrive. Changing the narrative around traumatic experiences to empower people to navigate them. The four phases of flow. Contact Info:Academy for Conscious Entrepreneurs >>> https://www.joinace.orgInstagram >>> thrive on your feedback, so if you’ve enjoyed this show, please rate us and leave us a review.

248. Raj Jana: Burning Man - The Frequency Of Liberation

Ep. 248
“Infinite possibility lives in the unknown. Can I trust the frequency of truth and presence over the ego hits that my mind is craving?” I’m just back from my first ever Burning Man experience, and it was life-changing. In this month’s reflection episode, I share the raw integrations and lessons from my time in Black Rock City. Stepping out of the constraints and conditions of everyday life into an environment with zero judgment and radical inclusion, driven by a gifting economy, was wildly transformative. For the first time in my life, I got to experience the frequency of liberation -- where I could feel the infinite possibilities of the human spirit and potential. Burning Man allowed me to experience a life that side-steps the ego and follows the calling of the heart. In the infinite expanse of the desert landscape, I felt safe to calibrate to the speed of my soul. There’s so much to talk about and reveal. I’m grateful to have Georgina El Morshdy with me to guide the conversation. “The journey to liberation, the path to liberation can be very difficult, very lonely, very challenging, especially as we are learning to decondition from a world that wants us to be conditioned.” Key takeaways:My raw integrations and lessons from Burning Man. What is Burning Man in a nutshell (in case you haven’t heard of it). The possibilities for living inside a judgement-free space. How a new environment can change yoru life - radically. Side-stepping ego and allowing intuition to guide my decisions and experiences. The power of a gifting economy. Burning the man and the temples. Burning my perfectionist tendencies to experience liberation. Owning my soul gifts. How to integrate profound shifts so they remain a permanent part of who you be and do. Tapping into energetic frequencies as a gateway for creation. Contact Info:Georgina’s Instagram | Facebook | WebsiteRaj’s contact details.
