Rory Vaden on How to Find Your Uniqueness and Exploit It in the Service of Others EP 248
40:29

Today I am joined on the Pasion Struck podcast by author, award-winning speaker, and personal branding expert Rory Vaden, who reveals the hidden power of finding our uniqueness and exploiting it in the service of others. Rory is the NY Times bestselling author of "Take the Stairs: 7 Steps to Achieving True Success."

What We Discuss About How to Find Your Uniqueness

The most successful people in the world realize that the meaning of their lives is about addressing the problem they solve in the service of other people. It's about service. It's not self-centered. It's others-centered. But how do you create and become the person who serves the person you once were? What are the keys to building a life-changing personal brand? How do you find your uniqueness? What do your calendar and your pocketbook tell you about your values? Where do you start on your journey? Rory Vaden tackles this and so much more.

Dr. Ethan Kross on the Hidden Power of Our Inner Voice EP 245
57:00

Today I am joined on the Pasion Struck podcast by the award-winning psychologist and author Dr. Ethan Kross, who reveals the hidden power of our inner voice and how we can harness it to live healthier, more satisfying, and more productive lives. Dr. Kross is the author of "Chatter: The Voice in Our Head, Why It Matters, and How to Harness It."

What We Discuss About The Power of Our Inner Voice

Ethan Kross delves into the inner dialogue we engage in with ourselves. Through research from his lab and real-world examples, such as a struggling pitcher and a spy balancing her dual identities, Kross demonstrates how these internal conversations shape our lives, careers, and relationships. He cautions that succumbing to negative self-talk, referred to as "chatter" by Kross, can harm our physical and mental health, undermine our mood, damage our social connections, and make us falter under stress.

7 Ways to Stop Playing the Victim to Your Circumstances w/ John R. Miles EP 229
24:22

Too often, we allow our psyche to control our lives. We become prisoners of our own minds and victims of our own circumstances. In this episode, John shares an important message about six ways to recognize we are playing the victim and seven steps to overcome our victim mentality and live intentionally.

What I Discuss About Playing the Victim

By nature, nobody is a victim. Playing the victim is not a psychological feature but rather a learned behavior. Most of the time, those with victim mentalities go through trauma or difficult situations without developing better-coping skills. In fact, this is referred described by psychologists as "learned helplessness," a condition in which people who have experienced terrible events feel helpless to get out of their predicament.

Max H. Bazerman on How to Overcome Complicity and Create a More Ethical World EP 215
59:23

Today I talk to Dr. Max H. Bazerman, the Jesse Isidor Straus Professor of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School. Max and I discuss his new book, "Complicit," and explore the root causes of complicity, how it's enabled and how to stop it.

What We Discuss with Max H. Bazerman

While It is easy to blame obvious offenders, we rarely consider the many people supporting their unethical or criminal behaviors. There was a corroborating cast of people who were complicit: business partners, investors, news organizations, employees, and others. And, whether we’re aware of it or not, most of us have been complicit in the unscrupulous behavior of others. We explore complicity through the stories of McKinsey, Arthur Andersen, Theranos, ExxonMobile, and BP and learn valuable lessons on not only what creates complicity but our role in allowing it to happen.

What We Discuss with Juliet Funt

Juliet explains why reinserting “white space” is vital in our days. This is the time when we can breathe, contemplate, prepare, and create. The name came from looking at the literal white spaces on a lightly scheduled paper calendar and discovering that those open blocks reveal how many opportunities that day could hold. To access it, you take a strategic pause. Stop what you are doing, and white space will rush in.

The Power of Forgiveness and 5 Important Ways to Forgive w/John R. Miles EP 208
19:35

In today's episode, I tackle the power of forgiveness by examining it through the lens of neuroscience and psychology. I then provide five powerful ways to forgive. If you're like most people, the thought of forgiving someone who has hurt you probably seems like the last thing you want to do on earth. This doesn't make you resentful—it just makes you human.

Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://passionstruck.com/the-power-of-forgiveness-and-5-ways-to-forgive/

Brought to you by American Giant (get 20% off using code PassionStruck at https://www.american-giant.com/).

What I Discuss About the Power of Forgiveness

Forgiveness is difficult because evolution has taught us to avoid being exploited by others. One of the easiest ways to prevent exploitation is by retaliating or avoiding the offender. Choosing to forgive someone who has caused you pain can free you from the harm caused by others. However, unforgiveness can tie you to your past, stealing you of peace and joy.

Jeremy Utley on Why Mastering Ideaflow Elevates Everything Else You Do EP 206

Stanford professor Jeremy Utley joins us on Passion Struck to discuss his new book Ideaflow: The Only Business Metric that Matters, co-written with Perry Klebahn. Brought to you by American Giant (get 20% off using code PassionStruck at https://www.american-giant.com/).

Let's face it. We all strive for grand ideas, but very few truly comprehend how novel ideas are born. Innovation is not a one-time event, nor is it a sprint or a hackathon. It comes from the mastery of ideaflow, a technique that advances everything else you do. The simple fact is that ideas matter. That is why innovators focus on inputs instead of outputs. According to Jeremy, innovators don't obsess over quality, they develop quantity.

Jeremy Utley is the Director of Executive Education at Stanford’s d.school and an Adjunct Professor at Stanford’s School of Engineering. He is the co-host of the d.school’s widely popular program, “Stanford’s Masters of Creativity.”

We are immersed in an era of smartphone obsession and digital addiction. I hear it all the time: “I can’t live without my smartphone,” or “I feel apprehensive when I’m not able to check my messages,” or “If I’m not on social media, I fear I’m missing out.”

Not surprisingly, research reveals that too much technology use diminishes our physiological and physical health, human connection, our work performance and is destroying our relationships.

Short of throwing your device away, how can you learn to build better habits around technology — keeping its benefits while minimizing the adverse effects? In today’s episode, I explore why smartphones are killing conversations and human-to-human connections we need to feel fulfilled. I’ll start by talking about a personal experience I had earlier today. I will then discuss why smartphones are negatively impacting our connections and provide five ways that you can break free from digital addiction.

Dr. Nate Zinsser on How Do You Create a Confident Mind EP 204
01:00:26

Dr. Nate Zinsser joins me on Passion Struck to discuss how you create a confident mind. Brought to you by BiOptimizers (Get 10% off at https://magbreakthrough.com/passionstruck) and Inside Tracker (get 20% off the entire InsideTracker store at https://www.insidetracker.com/passionstruck). 

Have you ever wondered how best to harness your belief in yourself to succeed in any field?

Dr. Nate Zinsser and I discuss why NFL quarterbacks like Eli Manning can rise to the moment and achieve peak performance. Why, whether your mission involves leading a platoon into combat, returning an opponent’s serve, or delivering a sales pitch to a roomful of skeptical prospects, how you can perform best when you are so sure about your abilities that your flow of fear, doubts, and confusion slows to the barest minimum.

Dr. Zinnser has spent his career training the minds of the U.S. Military Academy cadets as they prepare to lead and perform when the stakes are the highest—on the battlefield. Alongside this work, he has coached world-class athletes, including a Super Bowl MVP, numerous Olympic medalists, professional ballerinas, NHL All-Stars, and college All-Americans, teaching them to overcome the pressure and succeed on the biggest stages. For the first time, Dr. Zinsser distills his research and years of experience in his book The Confident Mind, which is a complete guide to confidence: how to understand it, how to build it, how to protect it, and how to rely upon it when your performance matters most.

Dolly Chugh on How to Create a More Just Future EP 203
44:13

Dolly Chugh joins me on the Passion Struck podcast to discuss her new book, A More Just Future. In our interview, Dolly provides a frank yet endearing compass for "embracing the paradox" that America was built on the idea that all people are equal. Yet it was founded on slavery. Chugh interweaves lessons on structural racism, the patriot's dilemma, and settler colonialism. We discuss her study of good people and why we should stop focusing on being a good person so that we can become a better one. We explore the contradictions of US history and how we should learn to view them, connecting the dots between current events and the past.

Dolly Chugh is a Harvard-educated, award-winning social psychologist at the NYU Stern School of Business, where she is an expert researcher in the psychology of good people. In 2018, she delivered the popular TED Talk “How to let go of being a ‘good’ person and become a better person.” She is the author of A More Just Future and The Person You Mean to Be.

Learning to be vulnerable can be messy because it comes with significant risks and big rewards. It's difficult to put ourselves out there because we fear it could impact our reputation or may even cause us to lose our partners or friends. But, the power of vulnerability also leads to finding a beautiful sense of belonging and being embraced by others.

In today's episode, I will tackle vulnerability by sharing the story of my friend who struggled with how to be vulnerable. I will discuss what being vulnerable means, why we avoid it, the benefits of being vulnerable, and five ways I have found you can build it.

Why Personal Growth Comes on the Other Side of Pain w/John R. Miles EP 199
18:13

Often times hardship halts even the best of us in our tracks. It becomes this heavy weight that stops us from becoming our best selves. But in this episode of the Passion Struck podcast, I will explain why experiencing pain in life allows the vast, dormant power within you to awaken and express itself. I will build upon this premise by discussing my own personal journey and how I experienced pain and grew from it. But, more importantly, I will explain how my story applies to you and how you can turn to experiencing pain as a pathway for personal growth.

Andreas Widmer on Why Principled Entrepreneurship Creates Enduring Value EP 198
56:03

Andreas Widmer joins us on the Passion Struck podcast to discuss principled entrepreneurship and how it creates enduring value for the customer through your own excellence. Thank you InsideTracker (https://insidetracker.com/passionstruck) and Dry Farm Wines (https://www.dryfarmwines.com/passionstruck/) for sponsoring.

Principled entrepreneurs unite people to their passion by creating value for their customers through inspired teams. They do this by seeing businesses as being made for people’s benefit and not the other way around. For the principled entrepreneur, the company is focused on others even when it is fueled by self-interest.

Andreas Widmer is a seasoned entrepreneur passionate about helping business professionals find deeper meaning in their work and sustainable success through principled entrepreneurship. Andreas has taught entrepreneurship at the Catholic University of America’s Busch School of Business since 2012. He is the author of the new book: The Art of Principled Entrepreneurship: Creating Enduring Value. He is also the author of The Pope and the CEO, Good Profit, and Human Ecology.

Daniel Pink on Why the Power of Regret Can Transform Your Life EP 197
56:23

A significant portion of modern culture proposes that we live with no regrets. You may have even seen people sporting 'no regrets' tattoos. But what if that advice is significantly wrong and regret was, in fact, actually a helpful thing? That's the highly provoking question today's guest, Daniel Pink, poses in our Passion Struck podcast interview.

Pink then answers the question using scientific research and two of the most extensive mega studies ever done on the subject, which validate that regret can be an incredibly valuable experience and powerful tool for creating a well-lived life. In fact, he argues that a life entirely without regret might even do more harm than good. 

With millions of copies of his #1 New York Times bestselling big-idea books sold, a renowned TED talk that has been viewed more than thirty-eight million times, lectures around the world, and the acclaim of everyone from Fortune 500 CEOs to Oprah, Daniel H. Pink has changed the way we live by changing how we think. His books have sold millions of copies, are translated into 42 languages, and won multiple awards. Today, we discuss Dan's newest bestselling book, The Power of Regret: How Looking Back Moves us Forward.

Daniel Pink Discusses The Power of Regret:

Have you ever wondered why regret is essentially about opportunity, and missed opportunities? Of course, some people have more opportunities than others. Does that affect the amount of regret they feel? Do people with more opportunities have more regrets? Should we use our regret more wisely or have less of it? How do we take advantage of regret without getting trapped in rumination? And why instead of running away from negative emotions, we should engage with them and use them to learn. And so much more.

20:33

If you desire a winning mentality that takes your mindset to where it needs to be, you need to change your perception of your reality.

So many people see everything in life in a negative light. I'm really hoping that this podcast is the podcast that inspires you to implement the five steps I laid out in the episode and put them to use to change your perspective, create a winner's mindset, and better your reality.

Douglas Rushkoff on Survival of the Richest: Don’t Believe Their Mindset EP 192
01:10:09

Professor and author Douglas Rushkoff (@douglasrushkoff) joins me on Passion Struck with John R. Miles to discuss how human behavior has become controlled by technology, as the "Mindset" of the obscenely wealthy is pushing us towards a world where they scale money infinitely, resulting in a fractured system with enormous wealth and income inequality.

Douglas Rushkoff is a professor of media theory and digital economics at Queens/CUNY. Named one of the world’s ten most influential intellectuals by MIT, he has been exploring, celebrating, and bemoaning tech development since the early 1990s. He hosts the Team Human podcast and has authored 20 books.

--► Purchase Survival of the Richest: https://amzn.to/3S3YMTi 

What I Discuss with Douglas Rushkoff

Today’s episode is a bit different from the ones we typically do on the show. Douglas and I will talk today about what the super-rich have termed "the event." Their euphemism for environmental collapse, social unrest, nuclear explosion, solar storm, unstoppable virus, or malicious computer hack that takes everything down.

According to Douglas, tech billionaires are preparing for this event by configuring their doomsday bunkers. But today’s podcast isn’t only about this, it is about the impact of the future of technology. It’s about the future of humanity and the need to unite intentionally to solve the world’s issues.

Seth Godin on Why We Need Systems Change to Save the Planet EP 187
51:03

Seth Godin joins the Passion Struck podcast to discuss The Carbon Almanac and why tackling climate change requires changing the system.

One of the things that we need to understand about the climate crisis is that we cannot simply reduce our way out of this problem. We have a systems problem. And the system problem is very simple: carbon extracted from the ground in the form of concrete, combustion, and cows is underpriced. We have been stealing from our future by burning stuff way too cheap.

Why Seth believes we need to act over the next decade or face irreversible consequences. We then devote most of the episode to discussing systems change, prioritizing what we need to do first, measuring the changes, fostering public-private partnerships, and keeping global stakeholders accountable.

  • What Exxon knew in 1982 that they kept hidden from the world

  • The purpose of the Carbon Almanac

  • The Impact of Coal, Combustion, Cows, and Concrete

  • Why the next ten years are vital to our survival

Understanding the Value of Time: The Wisdom of the Stoics w John R. Miles EP 184
26:13

How much is the value of time really worth? Carl Sandburg said, “Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent.”

In this Momentum Friday episode from the Passion Struck podcast, I tackle the value of time. I examine this by studying wisdom from the stoics on the topic and using ten of their mantras for managing time.

Members of the Passion Struck community have asked questions like, "Why do I always feel there aren't there enough hours in the day to do the things I want to do?", "Why do I keep procrastinating?", "Why do I waste my time doing frivolous things?", Why am I constantly dissatisfied with where my life is going?" and many other similar questions. This episode is dedicated to answering them.

This episode tackles how to figure out what your time is worth and use that information to spend your time more effectively. Learning how to get the most out of your time starts with knowing exactly what your time is worth.

Loneliness Is NOT a Joke. Here Are 9 Ways to Deal With It w/John R. Miles EP 181
23:31

Over the past few months, the growing chronic loneliness epidemic has come up repeatedly in my interviews on the Passion Struck podcast. Given its prevalence, I decided to devote this episode to addressing its significance.

Loneliness is a human sentiment that is complicated and unique to every person. Because there isn't a known common cause, the consequences of loneliness and its prevention can vary dramatically.

Anne Hathaway did a great job articulating her feelings about loneliness in the following quote, "Loneliness is my least favorite thing about life. The thing that I'm most worried about is just being alone without anybody to care for or someone who will care for me."

Her quote brings to life how differently we each experience loneliness. For example, a lonely elderly person who struggles to have people to talk to has different needs than a college student leaving home for the first time.

In today's Momentum Friday Passion Struck podcast episode, I dive into what it means to be "lonely," as well as the causes and consequences of loneliness, and provide ten different ways to deal with loneliness.

8 Ways to Stop Making Excuses in Order to Unlock an Intentional Life w/ John R. Miles EP 178
22:40

John R. Miles - Eight ways to stop making excuses to unlock an intentional life. Brought to you by Indeed. Receive a $75 credit at:  https://www.indeed.com/passionstruck. 

People often ask me, 'How does making excuses impact intentional positive change in life?'

In the words of Benjamin Franklin, “He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.” As cruel as that sounds, Franklin's words are closer to reality than we think. Until we stop making excuses, we will encounter consequences to living our lives with focus, purpose, and intentionality. Trust me when I say, making excuses is one of the worst things you can do if you desire to become your best self.

What I Discuss With Ari Wallach

The question we're asking ourselves, and we've continuously been asking ourselves for 1000s of years, is "Who am I and why am I here?" Suppose you are living a life that now has a purpose for something bigger than yourself. In that case, the immediate payoff is that you are now finding that the things that you do and the interactions that you have with yourself, your own inner voice with other humans, the things that you consume, and the ways that you vote, are no longer just about you. We explore the following topics:

  • What is a “futurist”?

  • What are the foundational principles of the Longpath perspective?

  • What Ari means when he says “short-termism”

  • What is “transgenerational empathy”?

  • What are a few examples of the Longpath perspective at work today?

  • Who are the biggest offenders of short-termism? 

  • What is the payoff for planning for a future we won't be around to see?

  • Why does becoming the great ancestors our future needs built on intentionality

What I Discuss With Dr. Kara Fitzgerald About How You Reverse Your Biological Age Through Lifestyle and Diet Choices

Dr. Fitzgerald and I discuss how there is a link between aging and chronic disease, and it has everything to do with epigenetics and their effect on aging. Biological age looks at specific patterns of a key epigenetic mark called DNA methylation. These DNA methylation patterns can reliably predict how fast our body is aging.

Methylation is as essential to our bodies as breathing and is happening in our bodies and within our cells all of the time. Therefore, if you can give yourself the DNA methylations of a younger you, you can reset your biological aging process. She provides key ways to do this throughout our interview that are based on her years of experience backed by clinical trials. 

  • Why do most adults spend the last 16 years of their lives suffering from chronic conditions and taking multiple medications?
  • Why reversing biological age is key.
  • Why it's epigenetics and not your genetics that determines your level of health and age

What I Discuss With D.J. Vanas about the Warrior Within

Drawing inspiration from Native American philosophy and tradition, D.J. discusses how The Warrior Within showcases a new standard of personal power in the face of overwhelming disorder. A genuine warrior is not the most formidable or most courageous person in the room. A real warrior is committed to self-proficiency, knows how to navigate life's transitions and disruption, converts setbacks into possibilities for accomplishment, refuses to give up, and most importantly, always fights for something greater than the self.

  • How going through the Sundance Ceremony transformed his life and image of being a warrior.
  • Air Force Academy experiences
  • What a warrior is and what a warrior is not.
  • What is the difference between a fighter and a warrior?
  • Intentional desire to serve in the right way.
  • The importance of each of us finding our own tribe.
  • Why can't we be a warrior when we're falling apart inside?
  • How can you apply the warrior spirit to overcome perfectionism?
  • Why Humility is the great equalizer.

Why We Fail to Take Responsibility for Our Life w/John R. Miles EP 169
18:30

People often ask me, 'Why do we fail to take responsibility for our choices?'

In the words of Jim Rohn, "Either you run the day, or the day runs you." This illustrates how essential it is for us to take charge of our habits or inadvertently allow our choices to dictate our life. 

When we fail to act, we allow fate to control our lives instead of us owning our destiny. As I discussed in last week's episode, it's why mediocre choices lead us to be average.

Why We Must Take Responsibility for our lives.

Why Average Choices Lead to Mediocre Results w/ John R. Miles EP 166
27:20

John R. Miles - Why average choices lead to mediocre results. | Brought to you by AppSumo's application marketplace (https://social.appsumo.com/passion), Gusto's all-in-one HR solution https://www.gusto.com/passionstruck, the Policygenius insurance comparison website (https://www.policygenius.com/), and Indeed the platform for hiring (https://www.indeed.com/passionstruck).

In last week's episode, I argued that mediocrity achieved as an end result of all our best efforts is not bad. But, it is when we intentionally practice habits that lead to being mediocre.

The truth is no one wants the title of being mediocre. Everyone desires to be unique, outstanding, and gifted. However, until you create an environment around yourself that fosters excellent choices, you will persist in making daily choices that make you average at best.

Kara Robinson Chamberlain on Why You Must Be Vigilant about Your Safety EP 165
01:16:34

Kara Robinson Chamberlain - Why you must be vigilant about your safety. | Brought to you by AppSumo's application marketplace (https://social.appsumo.com/passion), Gusto's all-in-one HR solution https://www.gusto.com/passionstruck, the Policygenius insurance comparison website (https://www.policygenius.com/), and Indeed the platform for hiring (https://www.indeed.com/passionstruck).

Kara Robinson Chamberlain was 15 years old when she was approached by a man in her friend's front yard in Columbia, South Carolina. At first, the gentleman appeared friendly, but then he drew a gun, shoved it against her neck, and forced Kara into the back of his car into a storage bin. Over the next 18 hours, Kara was held and sexually assaulted before she miraculously escaped her capture.

Kara's quick action and extensive information she provided law enforcement unveiled that her kidnapper was not only a pedophile but a serial killer who had murdered three other female victims in Virginia: 16-year-old Sofia Silva in 1996 and a year later, sisters 12-year-old Kati Lisk and 15-year-old Kristin Lisk.

Kara's story is nothing short of remarkable. Not only did Kara Robinson Chamberlain heroically escape her kidnapper, but her bravery was instrumental in aiding the police in catching a serial killer before he could murder another victim.

Listener discretion is advised.

What I discuss with Kara Robinson Chamberlain

I thought Kara's story and her long recovery of overcoming the trauma it caused needed to be told. I invited Kara to be on the Passion Struck podcast to narrate her account in her own words. In addition to discussing what happened in 2002, we also discuss why outwardly showing strength can hide how a victim is dealing with their trauma.

Kara explains how her coping with trauma started to take over her life and the steps she took to overcome it. She describes how she is now using her ordeal and years of work in law enforcement to communicate to groups worldwide. 

Kara tells her account as a tool to help train those who work with victims. She also wants to empower people to become their best version regardless of their past.

How Do You Overcome the Culture of Exceptionalism? w/ John R. Miles EP 163
17:32

So many of us struggle with a sense of inadequacy because we are immersed in a culture of exceptionalism. As a result, we will not dare even to consider being average, nor do we know how to accept it with humility.

The problem is that this culture of exceptionalism threatens to turn the idea of personal excellence into an anachronism. It is teaching us that it's terrible to be average. As a result, it inflicts people with chronic hopelessness and loneliness because they feel they can't settle for anything but being the best. If they don't, they are a failure.

10 Benefits of Meditation for Transforming the Mind and Body w/John R. Miles EP 160
24:37

The ancient practice of meditation is as pertinent today as it was two millennia ago when it was discovered. Amid the turmoil of life, we all could use the scientific benefits of meditation which provides a simple yet effective and convenient way to relax your body, calm your mind, and find inner peace amongst the chaos. 

Meditation allows one to observe the mind and still our thoughts, letting the mind perform at its highest levels.   As Jeff Warren expressed, “Meditation forces you into a direct collision with a fundamental fact of life that is not often pointed out to us: we all have a voice in our heads.”

What is unconditional love?

Unconditional love does not mean endless or boundless love. It means, “I choose to love you willingly without limitation.” This means that when we offer love, we supply it without anticipating anything in exchange for it.

6 Ways Patience Is an Important Virtue and How You Build It w/John R. Miles EP 151
24:45

John R. Miles - Six Ways Patience Is an Important Virtue and How to Build It. | Brought to you by Masterworks. Go to https://www.masterworks.io/ and use code passion to start.

Today, we live in a fast-paced world where we desire results at the speed of thought. We consume our fast foods, get our groceries and meals delivered to our house, drive our fast cars, and respond to the constant instant messaging, all of which can make us prone to impatience.

Now, it is okay for some things to be done faster. But not for everything. And that is why it is so vital to understand the importance of patience.

What I discuss about the six ways patience is a virtue and how to build it:

Speed has its benefits. But, many people misinterpret that real art comes in the form of understanding when to apply both: speed at a micro-level and patience at a macro one to ultimately accomplish our end goals.

What I discuss with Jesse Gould

Jesse Gould joins me in this episode of the Passion Struck podcast to discuss his mission to help military veterans struggling with mental trauma and spread awareness of the benefits of psychedelic therapies as an alternative treatment to pharmaceuticals. 

For centuries, indigenous healers and Native Americans have used psychedelic plants for therapy and medical treatment. Ayahuasca, for instance, has been used over 5000 years to facilitate personal and collective healing. During ceremonies, healers would often help provide recovery and reconcile the trauma people had experienced. Over the past century, psychedelics were labeled as illicit drugs and prohibited. Jesse's goal is to change that and legalize their use for mental health ailments.

What I discuss with Sarah Fay:

Almost one in five people (47.1 million) in the US have been diagnosed with a mental health condition. That number increased by about 1.5 million from last year. More may follow with a mounting sense of isolation in our fragmented country. But is a mental diagnosis the path to healing or a self-fulfilling prophecy?

Sarah suffered from six mental illness diagnoses for almost thirty years, all labeled because of the DSM. She realized the DSM is seriously flawed, even useless, but it's all we have through that process.

Why You Must Feel to Heal w/ John R. Miles Episode 142

John R. Miles - why you must feel to heal and 6 ways you can do it. | Brought to you by Babbel (https://babbel.com/passionstruck) for up to 60% off.

If you found this podcast, you are likely searching for how to heal your emotional pain of some sort. You may wonder how it is even possible. As I explain in the episode, yes—emotional healing is always possible if we make the deliberate choice to tackle our pain. I discuss why we often try to numb the pain instead of confronting it, and I provide six ways to approach that healing.

The reality is that following the emotional pain you are healing from, you are forever changed. I realize that can feel scary, but it can also be incredibly freeing as you experience post-traumatic growth.

  • Doris “Dorie” Miller, was the first Black American awarded the Navy Cross after he bravely remained on a sinking ship at Pearl Harbor to help his crewmates.
  • Rear Admiral Michelle Howard, whose ability to simultaneously delegate authority yet bear full responsibility was instrumental in the 2009 rescue of Captain Richard Phillips from Somali pirates.
  • Civil War Navy admiral David Farragut, whose adaptability to new technologies and decisive actions based on calculated odds defined his success.

Why We Become What We Think About w/ John R. Miles EP 139
24:21

John R. Miles - Why we become what we think about and seven ways you can build positive beliefs | Brought to you by Masterworks (https://www.masterworks.io/ code passion)

Notable American radio speaker and author Earl Nightingale once said, “We become what we think about.” This truthful statement embodies and emphasizes just how vital our mindsets and beliefs are to creating the lives we live.

Why do we become our beliefs?

A belief is any cognitive notion that is held as accurate. It is the acceptance that something exists, even though its existence cannot be proved. This means that the potency of a belief is entirely dependent on a person’s choice to accept or reject it.

Take, for example, two people with similar qualifications who are given $1000 to use for starting a new business. One of them believes they can start a business, profit, and earn thousands of dollars — a beneficial belief. In contrast, the other person believes $1,000 is too little to start anything of meaning and fails to start anything — a restricting belief.

Gretchen Rubin on the Key to Happiness Is Knowing Yourself EP 134
57:28

Gretchen Rubin - The Key to Happiness Is Knowing Yourself | Brought to you by Babbel (https://babbel.com/passionstruck and Trade Coffee (https://drinktrade.com/passionstruck).

Gretchen Rubin is an expert on understanding human nature and being able to explain complex emotional topics in easy-to-digest ways. She is the author of the New York Times bestsellers, The Happiness Project, Better Than Before, Outer Order Inner Calm, and Happier at Home. Gretchen has an enormous readership, both in print and online, and her books have sold almost three and a half million copies worldwide, in more than thirty languages.

The Key to Happiness is Knowing Yourself

On her popular weekly podcast Happier with Gretchen Rubin, she discusses good habits and happiness with her sister Elizabeth Craft; they’ve been called the “Click and Clack of podcasters.” Fast Company named Gretchen to its list of Most Creative People in Business, and she’s a member of Oprah’s SuperSoul 100. She’s been interviewed by Oprah, walked arm-in-arm with the Dalai Lama, and eaten dinner with Daniel Kahneman.

On the Passion Struck podcast I discuss with Gretchen the life lessons she learned clerking for Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. How during that clerkship she realized that her purpose was to become a writer and not a lawyer. How the study of human nature became her purpose and the key to knowing yourself. The difference between happiness and being happy. Her views on how negative experiences influence our happiness. The importance of decluttering our lives and why doing so brings us more joy, building habits, the key role they play in building happiness and so much more.

Why Self-Acceptance is the Key to Creating Your Best Life. Sam Berns's inspirational story and what we can learn from his courageous life. | Brought to you by Masterworks (https://masterworks.io use code passion to start).

Self-acceptance entails ultimately valuing all parts of yourself — both the desirable and undesirable. It means you understand your current reality, come to terms with it, and aspire to live your life as best as possible. Self-acceptance is perhaps the most incredible gift you can give to yourself.

Thank you Feedspot for selecting the Passion Struck as one of the world's most inspirational podcasts.

Self-Acceptance - The Courageous Story of Sam Berns

I will be opening your hearts and minds to the need to love and accept yourself for who you are through the inspirational story of Sam Berns. Additionally, I will lay out practical actions you can take to achieve self-acceptance ultimately.

Sam Berns was diagnosed with a rare, rapid aging disease when he was 2. Sam lived a short but fulfilling life. Just before his untimely death at the age of 17, he was a junior at Foxboro High School in Foxboro, Massachusetts. He achieved the highest honors and earned percussion section leader in the high school marching band during his time there. He also made the prestigious Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America.

He is featured in the Emmy award-winning documentary Life According to Sam, which premiered on HBO on October 21, 2013, 2 days before his 17th birthday. This episode of the Passion Struck Podcast is dedicated to Sam, progeria research, and the inspiring way he lived. Sam Berns Tedx Talk has 48 Million views: https://youtu.be/36m1o-tM05g

Anne O’Neil on Why Life Like Sports Is a Strategy by Design EP 132
56:55

Anne O'Neil (@heyanneoneil) on our life like sports is a strategy by design. | Brought to you by Masterworks (https://masterworks.io/ - use code passion to start).

Anne O’Neil is a former WNBA player for the Sacramento Monarchs and a Division 1 Academic and Athletic All-American at Iowa State University where she played for Bill Fennelly. She broke the Iowa High School State scoring record and was later inducted into the Iowa Girls Basketball Hall of Fame. Following a 12-year tenure in the athletic and healthcare industries, she took her expertise to Palo Alto Networks where she is a cyber transformational leader. She is also the host host of the Get Busy Livin podcast.

Strategy by Design

On the Passion Struck Podcast, Anne and I discuss how life, like basketball, is really strategy by design. And just as each play, makes a difference for each individual game, the same holds true for the moments that make up our daily activities. She believes that ferocity taught her how to read and know where to move her body ahead of time, where to pass the ball ahead of time, and where her teammates were going to be able to shine.

Laurie Singer - You're Not Crazy: There is hope for those experiencing anxiety, obsessions, or fetishes. | Brought to you by Raycon (https://buyraycon.com/passionstruck) and Athletic Greens (https://athleticgreens.com/passionstruck).

Laurie Singer is a board-certified licensed marriage and family therapist in applied behavior analysis. Motivated by the tragic death of her son in the late 80s, she devoted her life to the field of mental health.  She started her own company to create a team approach for helping individuals resolve behavioral and other mental health issues by applying behavioral and cognitive-behavioral therapy.

Laurie and I discuss how she developed the passion to compete in endurance challenges and what it was like for her to be indoctrinated into the Hall of Fame. The impact on her life from the death of her young son. Why does she believe that anyone who is stuck can become unstuck? How she develops plans that help individuals gain confidence by achieving their goals that they set for themselves. We discussed the strong scientific evidence and understanding that our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are highly interdependent how she helps those who suffered deeply from anxiety and its manifestations and so much more.

Kate Gilman Williams on Why Advocacy has No Age Limits and Anyone Can Make a Difference EP 126
33:50

Kate Gilman Williams — How kids can save animals, why advocacy has no age limit and anyone can make a difference. | Brought to you by Trade Coffee (https://drinktrade.com/passionstruck).

Kate is the Founder of Kids Can Save Animals, Founder of Club 15 – an extension of Project 15 from Microsoft, and Author! She launched Kids Can Save Animals to connect her generation with world-renowned conservation organizations, technologists, policymakers, and global leaders who work to save wildlife and wild spaces. Her goal is to save endangered animals.

Born Free USA

Kate was recently named the first Youth Ambassador for Born Free USA. In her role, Kate will speak to her generation about the exploitation and suffering of animals living in captivity, educate kids and teens that animals being used for any kind of human entertainment is wrong, what the illegal pet trade is, and how we all can help end the wildlife trade and trophy hunting.

Let's Go On Safari

At age 8, Kate authored the book Let’s Go On Safari! which takes readers on a safari adventure and encourages children to speak up for animals who don’t have a voice.  All sales from the book support the Jane Goodall Institute, The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, and Re:Wild.  So far, her book has raised over $15,000 for her conservation partners. When Penguin Random House in South Africa picked up Let’s Go On Safari! Kate became the youngest author in history to sign two publishing contracts resulting in a global title release.

In the Summer of 2021, Kate partnered with Jenn Hartmann Luck, Austin-based singer, and songwriter, to produce a song “Kids Can Save Animals.” With each download, 15% supports Re:Wild where Leonardo DiCaprio is the founding board member.

Dr. David Vago on Self Transcendence – How to Experience Personal Growth and Awakening Through Meditation and Meta Awareness
01:09:29

Dr. David Vago on self-transcendence - how to experience personal growth and awakening through meditation and meta-awareness | Brought to you by Babbel (https://babbel.com/passionstruck).

David Vago, Ph.D., is on a mission to alleviate suffering and improve well-being through investigating connections between the mind, brain, and body. He is a Research Associate Professor and Director of the Contemplative Neuroscience and Mind-Body Research Laboratory in the Department of Psychology at Vanderbilt University. He is part of the faculty for the Vanderbilt Brain Institute and Vanderbilt Institute for Infection, Immunology, and Inflammation. Dr. Vago maintains a research associate position in the Functional Neuroimaging Laboratory, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and is also Research Lead for the mental health and well-being platform, Roundglass, and a Mind and Life Institute Fellow. Over one million people have viewed Dr. Vago's Ted Talk on self-transformation.

How Self-Transcendence Impacts Your Self-Identity

Self-transcendence is the idea that there is something to transcend the self as if the self is something that is created through time. Over time, you have certain thoughts and emotions that construct your self-identity. It is a clinical model of self-reification, right conditioning, and habit formation. It all leads to how we conceptualize our identity, our needs, wants, fears, expectations, attitudes, and values. It is how our whole worldview is constructed. And so what meditation does, is it allows you to create a distance with those thoughts to find your greatest peace.

Please enjoy Dr. David Vago's episode and leave us a 5-Star rating if you love the episode. I know Dr. Vago and I would appreciate seeing listener comments. If you would like to watch this episode in addition to listening to it, you can view it here on our YouTube Channel. Please subscribe.

The Science of Learning: What is it and How does it Work? EP 122 with John R. Miles
25:11

We all learn differently and understanding the science of learning helps us all uniquely learn better. And the more we know, the easier it is to learn and understand new things regardless of your profession. | Brought to you by Grammarly (https://grammarly.com/passionstruck) and Raycon (https://buyraycon.com/passionstruck).

The science of learning is the ongoing process of information retention over time. Because our memory makes up the very framework through which we make sense of and take action within the present, its importance goes without saying. But how exactly does it work?

I use the unique story of Dr. Siddharth Warrier to illustrate how we learn and why lifelong learning is so important. To read further about today's episode, please visit the show notes on PassionStruck.com/passion_struck_podcast

Thank you for listening to this episode. I hope you keep up with the weekly videos I post on the YouTube channel, subscribe to, and share your learnings with those who need to hear them. Your comments are my oxygen, so please take a second and say 'Hey' ;).

Susan Cain on: Bittersweet, the Happiness of the Melancholy, and How Sorrow Creates the Union Between Souls EP 121
01:12:51

Susan Cain — Bittersweet, the Happiness of the Melancholy, How Sorrow Creates the Union Between Souls | Brought to you by Grammarly and Raycon.

Susan Cain is one of my favorite authors and completely changed the way I viewed myself and my own strengths. Susan is the author of the Quiet Journal, Quiet Power: The Secret Strengths of Introverts, and Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, which spent eight years on The New York Times bestseller list, and has been translated into 40 languages. Her new masterpiece, Bittersweet: How Sorrow and Longing Make Us Whole, is available now.

Susan’s first record-smashing TED Talk has been viewed more than 40 million times and was named by Bill Gates as one of his all-time favorite talks (and if you like that one, you should check out her most recent TED Talk with violinist Min Kym). LinkedIn named her the top sixth influencer in the world, just behind Richard Branson and Melinda Gates. Susan partners with Malcolm Gladwell, Adam Grant, and Dan Pink to curate the Next Big Idea Club. They donate all of their proceeds to children’s literacy programs.

Bittersweet: How Sorrow and Longing Make us Whole

In her new book, Susan discusses why sadness and the happiness of melancholy are key to achieving self-transcendence and the union between souls. As with the majority of people, you’ve probably been taught your entire life to look at the positive side and be happy no matter what. While there is a place for optimism and looking at the bright side, by burying your melancholy and sadness, you may actually be doing yourself a terrible disservice.

Please enjoy Susan Cain's episode and leave us a 5-Star rating if you love the episode. I know Susan and I would appreciate seeing listener comments. If you would like to watch this episode in addition to listening to it, you can view it here on our YouTube Channel. Please subscribe.

How Do You Create Your Own Success? EP 120
24:21

All around us, people talk about success all the time and the repercussions of what it is and how it is achieved weigh heavily in society today. These definitions are thrust on us by how others perceive our success and how we define it for ourselves. As I've discussed in previous episodes, many people define success in materialistic ways such as earning a degree, buying a house, a car, or a yacht. Others believe it is determined by their career, awards, accolades, and recognition. And some define success as getting married and having a family.  

But have you ever thought that success is doing the things you love when you want to do them and with whom you want to do them with?

Famous author and leadership coach Miles Munroe once said, "True success is not a project but a journey." Munroe summarizes that success is not achieved by a single event but by a succession of steps and actions. The quote illustrates that we are never to conclude that a person is unsuccessful simply because of temporary situations that do not fit into the general definition of success.

In today's episode, I delve deep into the true meaning of success by examining the unique rags-to-riches success story of American businesswoman and Shark Tank celebrity investor Barbara Corcoran. Her example illustrates how you can achieve great things by defining success on your terms. We will also go into how you earn and measure true success.

Dr. Jannell MacAulay On: How to Create a Mindset of Winning EP 119
01:09:36

Dr. Jannell MacAulay is a pilot, commander, special operations consultant, international diplomat, TEDx speaker, and professional instructor. She is a combat veteran with 20 years of experience in the US Air Force. Dr. MacAulay was the first leader to introduce mindfulness as a proactive performance strategy within the United States military.

About Today's Episode with Dr. Jannell MacAulay

I sit down with Jannell to discuss her decision to go to the Air Force Academy. We discuss how she learned how to be her best self through her flight training and serving in combat and her most harrowing flight experience. We discussed what made her start to do mindfulness and why she began to introduce it to her different military assignments. We explore the difference between leadership styles. We explore the difference between somebody who believes that you can change and somebody who thinks you can’t? Why does she believe world-class people, in whatever they do, are paragons of passion. She goes into why she equates mindfulness to doing mental push-ups. We explore her relationship with Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, the training course they developed together, and more.

Why is Empathy Vital to Creating a Passion Struck Life? EP 118
19:34

President Barack Obama said, “The biggest problem we have in our society and the world right now is a lack of empathy. We are in great need of people being able to stand in somebody else’s shoes and see the world through their eyes.”

The gap that President Obama alludes to is only growing more expansive as we continually become a society consumed by self-gratitude instead of focusing on ending the suffering of others. That's why it's so important we work at being empathetic. Luckily, we can.

Empathy is a cornerstone for successful relationships, but it is a quality that has to be intentional. Most people like to feel understood, but the mark of maturity is in knowing how to demonstrate understanding. In the end, the knowledge you wish to receive becomes more likely essential adjustments that will help you become a more empathetic person and living life, passion struck.

59:12

The Honorable Tim Gallaudet, Ph.D., Rear Admiral, U.S. Navy (Ret), is the CEO of Ocean STL Consulting, LLC. Gallaudet served as the Acting Under Secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere/NOAA Administrator and before that Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere/Deputy NOAA Administrator. Prior to NOAA, Admiral Gallaudet served for 32 years in the U.S. Navy, completing his career as the Oceanographer of the Navy. He was the American Blue Economy Podcast host from 2017 to 2021.

I sit down with Admiral Gallaudet to discuss his advice on holding fast in heavy seas and navigating turbulent times. We discuss Gallaudet's experience at the U.S. Naval Academy, and how that shaped the future leader he would become. Why some of his biggest lessons were learned from his time competitive swimming. What it means to be the Oceanagropher of the U.S. Navy and what that entails. His experience leading the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Some of the major initiatives he oversaw. The importance of the Blue Ocean Economy initiative and his focus on climate change, sustainable fishing, and preserving coral reefs. We discuss Tim's leadership principles and lastly his upcoming book Holding Fast in Heavy Seas.

What is the Key to Healthy Esteem? EP 116
20:52

At some point in our lives, we've all had times when we felt inadequate and imperfect about ourselves, whether due to a physical flaw or how we perceive ourselves. And the majority of the things we are doing to try to raise our self-esteem are entirely incorrect.

However, by recognizing that we always have the freedom and power to choose how situations in life will affect us, we can rise above challenges and build healthy esteem and self-love for ourselves. Whenever we have the self-confidence to solve issues on the inside, we set ourselves up for success.

In this episode, I will tell the inspiring story of Lizzie Velasquez and use her account to teach the things that do work so that you can apply them in your own life to get those lasting changes on the inside and create healthy self-esteem.
