Episode 1; What I Did Today


Ever wonder what I do in my free time?

You can’t be lazy, trust me.

You get to see me:

1. Get kicked out of a bookstore with Nazghol Gharai.

2. Prep for my free live talk to over 18 thousand people.

3. Train with former NBA player Pooh Richardson, and my Coral Belt Jiu-Jitsu trainer Rigan Machado.

The best part about living the integrated life, is that my staff gets to take advantage of the knowledge I learn during my training sessions.

Like Pablo Picasso said, “Never permit a dichotomy to rule your life, a dichotomy in which you hate what you do so you can have pleasure in your spare time. Look for a situation in which your work will give you as much happiness as your spare time.”

How To Use Mental Hypnosis To Beat Mr. Fatigue


It’s do-or-die basketball time.

I’m here with former basketball player Pooh Richardson. He’s been training Madeline and Rachel on their shots.

In life and business, I like to challenge myself. If you go to a party, find the most bad ass person or the hardest person to talk to. After that, it’ll be easier to talk to regular people in social settings.

The scientific term for this is contrast bias. So when you shoot with a big basketball, you get used to that. When you switch to the smaller one, your brain thinks, “This isn’t hard at all.”

You want to flip the switch

Who are you going to hang out with that’ll make it seem easier because they’re tougher than you? Are there any changes that need to be made?

Repetitions Are Your Reputation; Lessons From My Basketball Coach NBA Player Pooh Richardson


Pooh Richardson, former professional basketball player, came over to help me improve my shot and game.

Basketball is a metaphor for life, especially when people start to drift away from what’s working. Once you get into a streak, don’t change anything.

As Pooh said, “Repetition becomes your reputation.”

Momentum creates wins, wins create more wins, and little wins create big wins.

Whatever you do, try to get two in a row.  A 2 streak. That’s it.

What’s an example where you overthought it and tried to get a streak of 10, didn’t follow through, and ended up with nothing?
