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 much of our lives are predicated on the lens through which we view life. Our perception impacts how we view, comprehend, analyze, reflect, and interact with the world around us.

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.

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.

Seth Godin and I discuss why the carbon almanac has become the most important project of his life. The four horsemen that are causing the apocalypse and which one takes the most priority. 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

  • How we initiate systems change and where to prioritize the efforts

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
  • How is epigenetic expression greatly influenced by DNA methylation?
  • How do our diet and lifestyle choices impact DNA methylation?
  • The results of her research and a groundbreaking clinical trial showed a reduction of biological age by three years.
  • Why it is our daily choices and routines that add years to your life or reduce them
  • Her diet and lifestyle program which increases healthspan and reduces your biological age.
  • And so much more.

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.

I discuss the Power of the Downstate with Sara Mednick in this episode of the Passion Struck Podcast

Sara Mednick joins the Passion Struck podcast to discuss why most people find themselves immersed in "upstate" moments that magnify our stress engines, but it doesn't have to be that way. Dr. Mednick shows us how we can assess the most repairing and restorative aspects of sleep through moments and activities that occur in our day-to-day by diving into the Downstate.

Dr. Mednick’s seven-bedroom sleep lab works literally around the clock to discover methods for boosting cognition by napping, stimulating the brain with electricity, sound and light, and pharmacology.

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 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.

If you discovered this episode of Passion Struck, you are likely on the path of self-discovery and seeking knowledge on how to do it. You are not alone.

I will discuss the impediments along the way to achieving this journey and provide various ways you can stay on track to creating your best life. I do this by using the story of Cheryl Snead, an African American business leader, and philanthropist who understood why life is about the journey not the destination.

We discuss the psychology behind secrets, how they affect us, and how to better understand and cope with them. Through the secrets you carry, you discover a hidden self, and so much more.

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
23:31

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.

He is now on a journey to heal his mind, body, and soul.

The decision-makers Stavridis profiles range from the American Revolutionary War to the present day, for example:

  • 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

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.

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.

How Do You STOP Living in Fear and Letting It CONTROL You? with John R. Miles EP 130
22:59

John R. Miles - How do you stop living in fear and letting it control you. Fears are not just passively forgotten, they must be actively unlearned. Brought to you by Raycon (https://buyraycon.com/passionstruck) and Athletic Greens (https://athleticgreens.com/passionstruck).

The Neuroscience Behind Fear

We need to realize that fear is just an emotion that is utterly dependent on our thoughts at the end of the day. It does not have to control our lives and can be effectively unlearned. Fear is a complicated thing. In today's episode, I will be taking you on an in-depth journey into the world of the emotion called fear, explaining the neuroscience of fear, giving you details on how fear is learned, and equipping you with knowledge on how you can effectively unlearn fear.

57:11

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.

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.

Kate Eckman On: You Are Powerful Enough EP 115
50:46

Kate Eckman is a keynote speaker, author, leadership development, and performance coach. Kate has interviewed some of the world's most prominent newsmakers as a broadcast journalist, from President Barack Obama to Angelina Jolie; serving as the face of multiple global beauty brands as a TV presenter and personality, and working for some of the biggest names in the fashion industry as a professional model. Her book, The Full Spirit Workout, has garnered widespread accolades and is available at all major booksellers.

John R Miles sits down with Kate on the Passion Struck podcast to discuss why you are powerful enough to do anything you set your mind to accomplish. She became an academic all-American swimmer at Penn State and what that experience taught her. When we take care of our inner world, our outer world takes care of itself. How to shed one's inner baggage. We discuss how the suicide of two people close to her led to her book the Full Spirit Workout. We discuss the ten steps she outlines, and we end by talking about winning the game plan and why it is so important to ditch superficial for granular.

The Science and Traits that Promote Curiosity - John R. Miles EP 114
21:22

The majority of the novel discoveries and incredible innovations throughout history, from the printing press to airplanes to landing on the moon, all have something in common: They are the result of curiosity.

The instinct to pursue new knowledge and adventures and explore untried possibilities is a fundamental human characteristic vital to our personal development. When our curiosity is activated, we think more profoundly and rationally about decisions and develop more creative solutions. But what is the science behind curiosity, what are its advantages, and how can we create it in our own life. All questions we will answer in this episode on the science and traits that promote curiosity.

The Key to Enjoying a Rewarding Life is Shared Experiences EP 112
26:32

Noel Gallager said, "I don't live to work; I work to live." I first heard this expression when I was living in Spain, and a Spanish friend told me that, "you Americans live to work, while we Spaniards work to live." As I look back, I should have listened closer to my friend's wise words because they are the keys to living a rewarding life.

In this episode, I discuss the story of Kai-Fu Lee and the experiences of Australian author Bronnie Ware. I use these stories to discuss why experiences are the keys to enjoying a rewarding life, not the pursuit of possessions. I describe the scientific benefits of experiences and how you can relate this to your own journey of intentionality.

You work to live, not live to work. Work on what brings you happiness. The tools from today's episode ought to be helpful for anyone looking to understand how to create a rewarding life.

Michael Anthony On: Take Daily Action to Improve Your Life EP 111
01:03:00

Michael Anthony is the author of the best-selling book Think Unbroken and is a coach, mentor, and educator for adult survivors of child abuse. Michaels spends his time helping other survivors get out of "The Vortex" to become the hero of their own story and take their life back. Michael hosts the Think Unbroken podcast, teaches at Think Unbroken Academy, and is on a mission to create change in the world.

John R. Miles sits down with Michael Anthony to talk about how he was born to a hyper-abusive drug addict mother who cut his finger off at four years old, a stepfather you pray you never have, and a racist grandmother that pushed him into an identity crisis. By the time he was 9, his family was in poverty and often homeless, while being a Mormon Church member. At twelve, he was adopted by his grandmother and quickly turned to drugs and alcohol to survive the continuing abuse. Michael discusses how he found success in Corporate America in his early twenties. However, success only made things worse. Michael was morbidly obese, high and drunk daily, and ultimately self-sabotaging everything around him. We discover how he found self-love, and he altered the course of his life. Michael provides advice on how you too can take daily action to improve your life.

Strengthening Your Relationship With Your Best Self - John R. Miles EP 110
25:25

Over the years, I have come to a much deeper connection with myself. It is the most important relationship I can have—the one true constant in my life. I have learned that everything that happens in my life for good or bad is based on my reflection with myself and becoming my greatest self.

In this episode, I tell a parable to illustrate why your relationship with yourself is the foundation for everything. I then use this example to discuss how to discover your best self, grow into the best version of yourself, and strengthen your relationship with your best self.

All that we do in life is a testimony to our inner self and our relationship with ourselves. The people you impact or don't, the job you love or don't, those in your life you love or don't, the acts of service you do or don't, are all created by the relationship we have with ourselves.

The tools from today's episode ought to be helpful for anyone looking to become their best self.

Katie Chonacas On: Being a Rebel With a Cause EP 109
01:21:14

In this episode, I interview Katie Chonacas, a Greek international actress, filmmaker, voice actor, author, host of the She's All Over the Place podcast, and musician. We discuss her life being a rebel with a cause. You will find during our discussion that Katie has an ethos that surrounds her.

Katie talks about becoming an international actor who went from passion to profession and how that experience launched into being a voiceover artist. Why does she feel so strongly about mental health and staying true to her morals and values? She outlines her tangible steps to achieve any goal you want to accomplish in life and discusses why she wants to be a leader and role model for future generations. We discuss her new podcast season and why she is doubling down on NFTs.

This episode is sponsored by Athletic Greens, BetterHelp, and Ten Thousand.

The Science of Healthy Habits - How to Make Habits Stick EP 108
24:36

In this episode, I tell the story of Kieran Behan and, through his account, review the science of creating healthy habits, unhealthy habit elimination, and how the process of neuroplasticity (brain rewiring) facilitates habit formation.

I describe the role of the prefrontal cortex, which is grounded in the neuroscience of brain states and our ability to insert conscious effort, intention, and thought into the process. I also discuss neuroplasticity, also known as neural plasticity, or brain plasticity, and the neural networks' ability to change through growth and reorganization.

I then dive into how you create healthy habits and what makes habits stick using gymnastics and Kieran's story to help illustrate the points. I offer seven suggestions based on science that should help anyone create better habits and eliminate bad habits for fitness, relationships, school, career, and more--indeed, becoming empowered in the task of creating meaningful, prosperous, and productive habits. Once the habit formation cycle is formed, you can confidently creep closer and closer to your goals.

Jen Bricker-Bauer On: Everything is Possible EP 107
01:19:52

Jen Bricker-Bauer is an aerialist, motivational speaker, and New York Times, bestselling author. Born without legs, Jen's biological parents left her at the hospital, destined for a life of hardship. However, the hand of God brought her an amazing adoptive family, who taught her that everything is possible.

As a child, Jen was obsessed with gymnastics, and her idol was gold medalist Dominique Moceanu. In fact, watching Dominique on TV, helped inspire Jen to start competing herself. Seemingly against all odds, Jen competed against able-bodied athletes and became a State Champion in power tumbling. As part of her fantastic story and a twist of fate, Jen later learned that her childhood gymnastics idol, Dominique Moceanu, was actually her biological sister.

John R. Miles sits down with Jen Bricker-Bauer to talk about why she never says the word "can't" and how she has come to believe that everything is possible if you set your mind to it. You learn that you can achieve everything you've dreamed of when you unlock your purpose and create an intentional life. Jen discusses why she is doing everything she can to spread inspiration and joy throughout the world and is following her calling to teach others they can do anything they put their minds to achieving.

How You Use Joy As Your Compass EP 106

I am currently reading The Power of Myth by Joseph Campbell, and one of my favorite quotes from him is, "find a place inside where there's joy, and the joy will burn out the pain."

Joy is such a powerful compass.

It is a gift that actually helps us navigate the complex demands that vie for our attention. It invites us to slow down, discover what is most important to us and those around us and helps us decide in ways our ego, pride, fear, or sense of scarcity could never do.

And, I think there is so much truth in that quote. When you use joy as your compass, it may not always guide you to the most comfortable, popular, or painless decisions. The power of Joy is more profound than that. Through joy, you can transcend to places where life can happen intentionally, and you can become the best version of yourself.

"But you will never know the impact of just deciding to act and using your heart to say, 'what would really help them right now' that I don't even need to ask to do." - Kate Schutt

Kate Schutt is an award-winning songwriter, singer, guitarist, and producer. She is also a life coach. In 2018, Schutt gave a TEDx talk, "A Grief Casserole." Kate Schutt is the rarest of combinations… brilliance and humility, wisdom and curiosity, creativity and intellect. Each on its own is a gift; in combination, extraordinary.

“Kate’s newest album Bright Nowhere is the ultimate reveal with storytelling so emotionally raw and honest, yet, truly inspirational in its humanity and musicality.” -Kevin Killen, eight-time Grammy-winning producer.

Our conversation ranged far and wide, covering everything from the background on why NPR calls her voice “glassily clear and glossily sweet,” the secrets to true fulfillment in life, to the best gift you can possibly give someone.

Where You Invest Your Love You Invest Your Life EP 104
18:04

"In these bodies, we will live. In these bodies, we will die. And where you invest your love, you invest your life." - Mumford & Sons. This is one of the most potent lyrics the band has ever written, inspiring this podcast episode.

I believe this quote is about self-love and finding out about yourself and who you are. When we learn to love ourselves, we also express love to others more powerfully and intentionally. You can alter the way you see things, and it is your self-love that helps you become the best version of yourself.

In this episode, I take this lyric and define what self-love is and why it is essential. I explore the differences between healthy and unhealthy self-love and provide several examples of self-love that you can recognize in your own life. I use the stories of Asiya and Melissa to illustrate how they overcame their situations to find self-love and the change that it brought about. I then go into three ways to learn self-love and why it can be challenging. Lastly, I unpack five habits you can implement to encourage self-love and my final thoughts. 

Thank you for listening to this Passion Struck Podcast episode on how to self-love yourself. 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.

Oluneye Oluwole On: Why You Should Reach For Your Dreams EP 103
01:06:20

Imagine realizing you were in a relationship devaluing you and your gifts? You spiraled down to the lowest depths of your life. You had to take a brutal look at yourself and those things you allowed to happen because you lived life to please others, but not satisfy YOURSELF. And then recovering and rediscovering who YOU are as a result? You started to look at your life as saying yes to opportunities. And taking that step means doors opening, and those doors leading you to a higher calling of whom you are meant to be and how you're meant to impact your world. 👇 THIS is the Oluneye Oluwole Story. 

In this episode, John R. Miles is joined by Oluneye Oluwole, a serial entrepreneur, multi-sector entrepreneurship incubator, relationship builder, and administrator with a passion for economic empowerment, leadership, and sustainable development.

How Your Environment Influences Who You Become EP 102
18:44

Our environment continually influences our lives, our decision-making process, and how we interact with the world around us. In psychology, there is a concept known as 'the social multiplier effect' based on the principle that high levels of one attribute or behavior amongst one's peers can have spillover effects on an individual.

In today's episode, John discusses this social multiplier effect and how your environment influences who you become.

Why Materialism Is Impacting Your Success and Happiness EP 96
17:44

It is so easy to fall into the trap of materialism. The attraction is all around us. But it is now believed that by minimizing attachment to material possessions, you naturally allow more room for happiness and abundance to flow into your life, instead of greed, apathy, and ego.

John explains how he fell into the materialism trap and why it eventually led to depression, anxiety, apathy, and a failure to live intentionally. He goes into the psychology of materialism and how social media and the people we surround ourselves with influence our beliefs and behaviors. He discusses in this video why you need to focus on the intangibles in life if you want to have success, happiness, and good health.

01:12:05

Andrew Marr is a retired Green Beret, co-founder of the Warrior Angels Foundation, and author of "Tales from the Blast Factory." He is also featured in the new documentary "Quiet Explosions." In this Pasion Struck podcast episode, Andrew sits down with John R. Miles to discuss his never-quit mentality overcoming the wounds of war and his traumatic brain injuries.

The two veterans discuss:

  • Andrew's 2013 tour of duty in Afghanistan and his underlying medical issues upon returning home.
  • From personal experience, the two both talk about the long-term effects of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and how it impacted both of their lives.
  • Why navigating the VA is so difficult and their advice for doing so.
  • How Andrew Marr met Dr. Mark Gordon, a neuroendocrinologist, and how they were able to tell their story on the Joe Rogan podcast.
  • How Dr. Gordon uses a personalized approach focused on functional medicine and hormone treatment for TBI recovery
  • How the Warrior Angels Foundation is now helping hundreds of veterans and active duty service members recover from Traumatic Brain Injury.
Are You a Veteran Who is Suffering From Traumatic Brain Injury or PTSD?

The Warrior Angels Foundation provides answers, hope, and healing that returns proven leaders back to life by delivering brain injury prevention and care through proven nutraceuticals, personalized treatment protocols for U.S. Military Service Members and Veterans, Traumatic Brain Injury education, and research for all who are affected.

How Can You Overcome Your Limits? EP 86
16:05

In this solo episode, John R. Miles discusses how our limits result from the mindset that we choose to live and act by. Often we develop beliefs that are not real and only exist in our minds.  What could you accomplish if you could break free from this mindset and live to your potential?

John provides the examples of Michael Jordan and John Bassinger to illustrate those who pushed past their limits and explores this through the lens of Dr. Carol Dweck's work on mindset.
