Description

The Primal Potential Podcast is about transformation, not information. So many of us KNOW what we need to do to achieve our goals but we aren't DOING it. There's a continuous gap between our INTENTIONS and our ACTIONS. Primal Potential is a TOOL to help you create massive change in your life and ENJOY the journey!

835: Please STOP Being So Realistic
38:09

We're answering your questions today and we've got some really good ones!

1. How can I dream bigger without a mental leash holding me back and keeping me “realistic”. Especially when realistic just means confined.
2. I have a journaling question: When I journal, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut of choosing the same goals and drivers to work on every day. When you have a long term goal, how do you keep it fresh?
3. Which biography books are your favorites? I am looking for an easy, inspiring book to read before falling asleep. Thanks
4. I have never been a morning person. Is it possible to become one?
5. What kind of goal setting/planning do you do? Do you set monthly/quarterly/yearly goals? How often do you check in with your goals?
6. I have bounced around from 190 to 200 for 3 months. As soon as I hit the low 190’s I seem to lose my sense of purpose and my focus. I still eat very clean but begin eating too much. My goal is 170 but it keeps eluding me. What’s going on with my stinking thinking?
7. How are your views on life now after everything you went through with Chris? What’s next for you?

833: Communication, Business Building & Relationships
27:09

Once again, you guys come through with epic questions across the board!

1. You've spoken about looking for things to be grateful for in your partner. I can do that, and still get extremely frustrated when he doesn't listen well or seemingly misses the point of what I'm saying (I'm not chatty, so since we're now together 24/7, when I say something, I'd like for him to listen). So yes, I can find plenty to be grateful for, and yet, I still get mad at him several times a week, and importantly, I don't calmly explain over and over the same thing -- that I'd like him to listen. At this point, I immediately get pretty mad.
2. Do you have any tips on how to stop trying to please everyone?
3. How do you balance striving to achieve your goals with being grateful for where you are and enjoying life in the moment?
4. What’s the subject of your next book?
5. What are some of the best practices for generating an email list for an online business?
6. Do bullies only exist to people who lack self confidence?
7. How do you build a successful network marketing business if you don’t have a big social media following?

3. How do you find motivation for weight loss when you feel the motivation is lost or you’re just off track?
4. I live in WA where we go from 16 hours of sunlight in the summer to closer to 8 in the winter. Did you ever adjust your routine for the times of year? How do I keep myself from sitting in front of the TV when it's so dark by 6pm??
5. What are good strategies on days I’m not at my best and feel defeated?
6. What are practical steps to block temptations when you can’t remove them. Specific example... I know I shouldn’t drink as much beer as I do but I struggle because 1) I really enjoy it and 2) with my husband it’s not going to ever not be in the house.
7. How do I lose weight using my thoughts?
8. How do you balance the desire to reach your goals, with your desire to enjoy life as it is and be grateful for everything you currently have?

828: A Mini Masterclass on Getting Better Results
24:18

I see a lot of logic problems. Do you remember PEMDAS (please excuse my dear aunt sally) that taught us all the order of operations for a math problem? The fact is, even if you add and subtract correctly, if you do them in the wrong order, you have a logic problem that will give you the wrong answers.

This is also true in the way we we think. If you ask crappy questions "What's wrong with me?" you're going to get a crappy answer.

Today is a mini masterclass on getting better results by asking better questions.

We Lost Our Beautiful Girl
01:08:36

Just last week, I shared the birth story of our precious daughter, Dagny Elizabeth Thompson. I sat out in my office recording, as baby Dagny slept inside with Chris. Every second, I wondered if she had woken up or if she was hungry...I couldn't wait to get back inside and hold her. 

I never imagined that just a week later, we'd be sharing that we lost her. 

Our grief is deep & raw, but we also wanted to share our love and her life with those of you who have followed our journey and prayed for her. Please skip this episode if you are triggered by stories of trauma or infant death. This is certainly not an episode for everyone.

Please continue to pray as we navigate this unimagineable loss. 

We have established the Dagny Elizabeth Thompson Memorial Fund in her honor to support families navigating infant crisis and loss.

725: Carrying Emotional Burdens
39:18

In today's Q&A listeners episode, we're opening a conversation on emotional burdens and how they're an important part of the journey.

This episode's winner gets a Vanilla GBX protein! https://www.myamareglobal.com/30968/GBXProtein

Here's the list of the questions from our listeners that we're discussing this Saturday:

  • Can you talk about making "big" decisions? For example, when EB decided to invest in the business Mastermind group, what were the thoughts and processes? I know you have touched on this somewhat in various podcasts, but I'd love for you to take us back to the moment you signed on.
  • How to keep doing what you need to do for yourself when you’re living in perpetual stress (a sick parent, an alcoholic husband, a wayward child, etc)?
  • How can we trust that everything will be okay?
  • I lost weight and then gained it all back. I feel embarrassed and although I know I did it once so I can do it again it feels so much harder. I’m really struggling with body image issues which also makes things harder because of the negative self-talk.
  • How not to carry an emotional burden, when bad or unfair things have happened to you? Or is it okay to feel/react on those occasions? This might sound really stupid, but hopefully, you'll understand what I'm after. Like if someone just treats you really bad, and it genuinely hurts, and you know that you should not react, but it feels unhumanly Teflon-like not to react or feel bad. Can you just have/live the emotions, and still stay on course/be okay? This is one of my biggest struggles.

We have the winner for today's giveaway at the end of the episode! They get a Vanilla GBX protein: https://www.myamareglobal.com/30968/GBXProtein

723: Busyness Leads to Bad Decisions
27:24

Today we're taking a look at some powerful research supporting the fact that busyness leads to bad decisions and, most importantly, what we can do about it.

https://primalpotential.com/723/

Here's the article referenced in today's episode.

“When we get caught up in a time scarcity trap of busyness, a panicked firefighting mode, we might only have the capacity to focus on the most immediate, often low-value tasks right in front of us rather than the big project or the long-range strategic thinking that would help keep us out of the tunnel in the first place.”

722: Discipline - Why It Feels So Elusive (And What You Can Do About It)
31:53

It always helps to figure out first in which area in your life that you could insert DISCIPLINE a little more! Be specific with what outcome you want, work on it every day, and stick with it. The highlight of this Saturday's Q&A episode is discipline and how you could incorporate it into your life. Join us as we tackle the topic!

Today's winner gets a bottle of Probiotics!

Here's the list of questions we're discussing in this episode:

  • Can you talk about discipline?
  • You always hear that you should be “the dumbest” person in your group in order to elevate and grow. I get the concept. But how do you find that in real life? I have some great long-time friends... that I’m keeping but I keep thinking I should do more and find an additional group? Not easy to do at my age and introvert tendencies.
  • The pictures on my online dating profile are from when I was 30 pounds lighter, which I gained in the last couple of months due to stress and lack of focus. Should I disclose that I’ve gained weight or should I update the pics (which I haven’t been taking pics) or should I pause online dating until I get my shit together?
  • Why can't I stop eating? I've listened to hundreds of EB's podcasts. I'm in therapy and I've lost 80 lbs over 2 years... and I still can't stop eating/bingeing and keep regaining my weight. I still have 100 lbs to lose.

We announce the winner of Probiotics at the end of the episode!

Here's the Primal Potential Facebook group mentioned in the episode. We're excited to have you there!

There are three simple ways to win: leave a review on our Apple Podcasts page, or leave a review of Chasing Cupcakes, or you can even follow and tag me on Instagram or Facebook and share with us your favorite episode of the show.

721: Love (of Money) In Action
01:07:44

Money is a weird topic. I love to talk about it because I think it makes it more accessible for everyone. Others get super squirrely when it comes up. On today's episode, we want to bust through some money myths and misunderstanding and explore how creating financial abundance is for EVERYONE.

On today's episode I have Brett Thomas, a former sales executive who left the security of a 25-year career to work for himself and make a bigger impact in the world.

We'll also tak with Pat Hintze who quickly realized that working for someone else would limit him. He has worked for himself for over 20 years and the ways it allows him to serve his family & community have far exceeded his expectations.

Lastly, you'll hear again from Brooke Thomas, who believes that we have to generate to be generous.

22:25

If we begin to assess and respond to warning signs of impending health problems, we can create a buffer against many health challenges. The key is, we have to know what these warning signs are and where we stand.

  • How can I keep myself on a schedule?
  • How do you start a meditation habit?
  • I have heard you mention a few times that you have a goal this year of (I’m summarizing here, please forgive as it’s been a while since I heard you talk about it) creating more meaningful connections, better relationships, and being less task focused when it comes to your boyfriend. Something like this, right? Do you talk about this in more depth anywhere? I can totally relate to this and it is definitely an area in my life that I can improve.

708: Creating a Life You LOVE
40:50

I'm so excited to have Brooke Thomas back on the show! Too many people are "fine". Things are "okay". People are living a fine life, even a good life, but not a life they love.

Oftentimes, setting a bigger vision feels weird. We're unsure of ourselves and make decisions based on how others might respond to the moves we make. That means living small!

In this converation with Brooke Thomas, we talk about how to create clarity for your life and how to respond to yourself as you start going through the fears, doubts and dramas.

Be on the lookout for Brooke's new podcast - the Live Out Loud Show launches this week and as soon as it's life, we'll link to it here!

707: Avoidance Isn't Refuge
26:13

One of the topics we're focusing on in this Saturday's Q&A is NUMBERS - the thing you see on the scale, on your bank account, or on anything else that contributes to your life and mindset. How do you face these figures? What does 'avoidance isn't refuge' mean when it comes to these numbers? Join us as we tackle the topic in this episode!

Here's the complete list of questions we're answering today:

  • I would love your opinion on tracking body composition and weight. I'm working with a counselor who wants me to avoid numbers altogether, as she thinks I try to over-control these variables. However, I believe that avoiding these numbers is hiding from them. You once said "avoidance isn't refuge" in the 12WT and it's always stuck with me. I think it's important to train myself to be able to face the numbers and have an objective, non-dramatic response to them regardless of what they are. I also think it's important to have an objective measure of progress so I can re-evaluate whether or not what I'm doing is working. On the other hand, I also feel a reasonable amount of stress at the thought of letting go of numerical measures of progress altogether, so maybe she's onto something. What are your thoughts?
  • What are some physically actionable activities to ride out cravings?
  • How do I stop self-sabotage and procrastination from keeping me from identifying what I truly want in my life?
  • I'd love to hear tips for facing the plateau- after sustained effort, there is a point where the scale seems stuck- (or broken!) How do you maintain focus to have the positive belief that it will happen with sustained effort?
  • What’s your thoughts on nut consumption? I absolutely love them, so if you are pro-nut, when would Be the best time to eat them and with what?

Today's giveaway winner gets a bottle of mood+! We announce the winner at the end of the episode!

"How do I get out of my own way?" is a question we often hear! Sometimes, the answer is more about what you're doing to get in your own way and if you're willing to create an improvement today. In today's episode we're digging deeper into this question and many more!

  • Do you cook your salmon cakes before you freeze them?
  • How do I get out of my own way?
  • I was wondering if you could give some advice on how to find a credible Life Coach Certification program.

  • How do I learn to not care what other people think, or not compare myself with someone else's journey?

688: Problem Solving Versus Problem Creating
27:14

In today's Q&A episode we are talking about the difference between solving the problem and further creating new ones. How to focus on coming up with solutions rather than paying attention to how you feel about the problem? Tune in for the answer!

We answer these questions in today's episode:

Any tips for problem solving (instead of problem creating)?

What the differences are between MCT oil and coconut oil. Are they the same thing? I tried your bullet proof tea the other day, making it with a tablespoon of butter and of coconut oil and found it to be somewhat greasy. Am I using the right amounts?

What is happiness?

I’ve lost weight before but I couldn’t really see the change. The clothes were a smaller size and people said “you look great “ but I couldn’t see it. Do you have suggestions for how to change that kind perspective?

I'm feeling borderline depressed and unmotivated to do anything.  I feel like I spend all my time planning, prepping, and cleaning for my household, with very little gratitude and appreciation.  And half the time I feel like I'm just wasting my time and energy on things that only matter to me. I know what I need to do. I know what I want to do.  But why should I do them if it doesn't matter to anyone else? How can I stay motivated when no one else around me is or even cares?

I signed up for your Breaking Barriers course in June, it is now November and I have yet to complete it, not because I am too busy, but I forget to make it a priority and I get lazy.    So my question .... do you think I would do better in the twelve weeks to transformation group? I think I may need more accountability.

685: Motivation without Obsession?
36:19

Staying motivated without getting obsessed with it? Is that even possible? Is obession bad? Can it be helpful? We have the answer for you in today's Q&A episode!

Here's the list of questions we're answering today:

  • Staying motivated without getting obsessed —how do you do it?
  • You've mentioned on the podcast that you have quit drinking coffee during your pregnancy, and I wondered if you could share a bit about what led you to that decision.  I just learned that I'm pregnant with my second child, and while I did not give up coffee entirely during my first pregnancy, I think it might be beneficial this time around. I do love my morning coffee and would love some evidence to motivate me on those mornings when a cup of coffee is tempting.  Morning sickness hasn't hit me yet, so I'm sure will also affect my coffee consumption. Also, did you quit cold turkey when you learned you were pregnant or did you gradually taper off?
  • How soon can we find out if we have made it into the 12 Weeks to Transformation?
  • How do I give up drinking regular alcohol when it's such a big part of mine and my husband's life and is how we spend our time bonding, as we have three kids and don't do much else but work and look after the kids.
  • What is the best plan if I miss day(s) journaling?
  • How do I get off of being the victim over my health? I blame everything that is wrong with my weight on believed “malfunctioning body” when it fact is my lack of consistency that has brought me here.

If you have a question or topic for our Saturday Q&A shows, please share it here.

The free challenge mentioned in today's episode kicks off on November 25th! You can participate by joining the Primal Potential Facebook Group or getting on the 12 Week Transformation Waitlist. We'd love to have you in both!

The registration for the 12 Week to Transformation - Winter starts on December 11th so make sure to stay tuned for that. If you aren't on the wait list, join now!

682: Not Satisfied After Eating?
40:07

Have you ever felt like you want to keep eating even when you know you've given your body enough fuel? This is an interesting question from a listener that we're covering in this Saturday's episode!

Here are the questions we're tackling in today's episode:

  • I am at the point where I want to make some career changes. I am currently studying to get my real estate license and I will be working with a great team once I am licensed. The company that I currently work for is not supportive of anything I do outside lab hours (in terms of part-time work) and they are not flexible to allow me to spend time on real estate. My goal is to be self-employed, although I feel the transition is not going to be easy with my current job. Are you still involved with real estate? I would like to hear more about your story of how you started your own businesses and transitioned to being self-employed.
  • I miss your “workouts I love” at the end of your episodes! My question is, what kinds of workouts can we do where we have some flexibility to chat?
  • How did you find your mentor?
  • Do you only coach people on weight loss and is the 12 Weeks to Transformation only about weight loss?
  • At 55 and no career to speak of (long story), can I still make something of myself or find my purpose?
  • Often times after I eat I just don’t feel satisfied. I know that I have fueled my body in a good way because I feel energized and not hungry but I just don’t feel satisfied (if that makes any sense) and I desire other foods that cause me to stray from my plan. Any thoughts?

Make sure to tune in through the end of the episode for the announcement of today's winner of a bottle of digestive enzymes.

679: Creating Energy During Periods of Mental Exhaustion
41:51

Have you ever felt mentally exhausted? One of our listeners wrote in for today's listener Q&A episode wondering how to find energy on those mentally exhausted days. We're also diving into questions including:

  • Where did I lose my self worth?!
  • How do I sort out my life?
  • I have experimented with fasting and IF for quite some time and find abstinence easier than moderation. I find a lifestyle of only eating once a day quite sustainable but am not losing fat. I was wondering, does the golden rules of carbs mean that, if I break my fast at dinner that I should treat it as a fat loss breakfast i.e. little to no carbs after the long fast?
  • How do I deal with the "blah" days when that's all I seem to be having lately?
  • How to get motivated after repeated failure?

We also dive into questions including:

  • How do I become more action oriented and not just a dreamer?
  • Why do my addictions transfer? When I have my eating habits squared away, my finances really get out of control. When I rein in my finances, my addiction to exercise spikes! Frustrating!
  • How do you let go of loved ones?

31:25

Can we change everything about ourselves or are there some things we just need to accept? This is one of many topics we're diving into today on this Q&A episode of the podcast!

  • I know that if you think you're an emotional eater that is what you'll live like. But: what if that's what you really are? And what about being stubborn? Is that a characteristic that is really you or what? Can you really change everything you want or is it that sometimes you need to just accept that that is who you are?
  • How do I push myself to get to my goal?
  • Are values and standards the same thing?
  • My knees hurt, I'm 80 lbs over weight, but my doctor told me I should exercise. I'm working 2 jobs and am in graduate school full time, I'm barely getting my 7 hours of sleep a it is. What can I do?

  • How do I change the beliefs formed at childhood that are preventing me from success now?
  • Is it possible to work on all my goals? I dont want to put any of them off but they often conflict and I give in to overwhelm.

Presence. Mindfulness. Let me ask you: how often are your mind & body in the same place? Today we are talking about improving your life through presence. In every moment is potential.

647: Over It and On With It
46:51

 

If you aren't listening to "Over It & On With It" by Christine Hassler, you should be! Christine is on the show today and we're talking about discerning between thought & intuition and releasing your past stories. It's a fascinating conversation about wanting & attachment and she really brings clarity to the topic with the recommendation of high involvement, high intention but low attachment.

To connect with Christine and her work, visit her website and connect with her on Instagram!

More About Christine:

Christine Hassler is a best-selling author, keynote speaker, master coach, podcast and TV host who is committed to guiding people and organizations into their highest potential. She left her successful job as a Hollywood agent at 25 to pursue a life she could be passionate about . . . but it did not come easily. After being inspired by her own unexpected challenges and experiences, she realized her journey was indeed her destination.

Her thirst for personal development continued as she dived into self-help books, attended seminars and retreats, got trained in NLP and eventually pursued her master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology with an emphasis in Consciousness, Health and Healing from the University of Santa Monica. As a student and eventually faculty member, the principles of USM are foundational to Christine’s life and work.

Christine knows we are always consistently growing and evolving. There is no “there” and we are never “done”. However, with the right tools and teachers, the journey is a lot easier! This is why Christine has her own coach and always will.

643: Food Guilt, Family & Other Listener Questions
32:28

I love Saturday shows! Today we're talking food guilt, food sensitivity, family meals and so much more!

Here are the specific questions from today's episode: 

  • I'm stressed out about my husband's disorganization! How do I overcome my reaction to it?
  • Are the podcast episode notes available for early episodes? I am only on EP 021 and cannot find them on the app or online/website.
  • I struggle with guilty eating. Not feeling guilty for what I eat but feeling guilty for NOT eating. Example: every Sunday my parents cook spaghetti and meat balls and dessert and my mother is a self proclaimed food pusher. Between the Italian in them and the catholic guilt, I feel guilty they take all this time and money to make a nice meal and it’s not really something that loves me back.
  • What do you recommend to someone who has lots of food sensitivities?
  • I've hit a plateau - what advice do you have?
  • Is it detrimental to constantly argue with yourself for positive thoughts?
  • How did you grow your Primal Potential audience?

642: Are You Playing Small & Limiting Yourself?
12:58

Are you playing small? On today's episode I share with you a quote I first heard from Tim Ferriss:

"The more labels you apply to yourself, the stupider you become."

I'll amend it slightly to say:

The more labels you apply to yourself, the smaller your life becomes.

Labels limit you. I hear them every day.

I'm an emotional eater. I'm an all-or-nothing person. I'm anxious. I'm a spender. I'm not an athlete.

The reality is, you can choose to show up however you want to TODAY. You are not limited by yourself but you will be limited by the labels you cling to.

641: The Need To Relax & Release
32:10

A couple weeks ago, I had a powerful conversation about my own need to relax and release. It was a real paradigm-shifting moment for me that came out of a conversation I had with pre & postnatal expert Jessie Mundell.

Though the context of our conversation was related to my experience in pregnancy, the lesson I took away from it is so widely applicable to absolutely everyone who listens to this show.

Sometimes, what matters more than strength is the ability to relax and release. Sometimes, the most important skill we need to develop is the one that allows us to be mentally, physically and emotionally relaxed.

I know for sure that you're going to LOVE this episode!

  • I have made changes to my diet. I am eating healthy, exercising and I still can't lose weight. What or where should I start first? I am 47, should I start with blood work to check my hormones?
  • I wish I could join the 12 week transformation class now but it’s in progress right now. I really would like to get started now. What would you recommend I do? Do you have any other program/coaching that I could start?
  • How the HECK do I get out of my slump I've been in for all my life? It's just gradually gotten worse and my accountability has declined, and my husband is supportive but he's not a motivator. How do I keep my accountability and motivation up high?

635: THIS Could Be Behind Your Hormonal Challenges
32:07

In the last few weeks, I have been asked at least once a day to talk more about the link between gut health & hormones. I recently announced that I am pregnant and I've shared that I KNOW a big part of the reason I was able to get pregnant naturally is because I focused on improving my gut health in the months before conceiving.

If you've followed my story, you know it involves a number of hormonal imbalances. I was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) when I was 16 years old. In my mid-twenties, a fertility specialist told me I'd need medical interventions to get pregnant. In my early thirties I was diagnosed with hashimotos thyroiditis, an auto-immune thyroid condition. When I froze my eggs in 2017, I was again told that it was highly unlikely that I could get pregnant without intervention.

And yet, I did. In fact, we conceived the very first month we began to try.

But don't fret - today's episode isn't about fertility (entirely). Our gut health impacts our hormones. Thyroid hormones, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, insulin...gut health impacts menopause, energy, body composition and so much more.

That's what we're looking at today.

633: Obesagens, Endocrine Disruptors & Other Chemical Concerns
37:33

It's been a while since we've talked about endocrine disruptors, obesagens and other chemical concerns that might play a role in your weight struggle, hormonal issues and other health challenges.

I've done a few episodes on the past, but this came up for me again as I was clearing out my kitchen for it's renovation. Our kitchen collection has grown since my boyfriend moved in and people come by with plastic party-ware that gets left behind.

I am not here to say that making changes to your food wrap, dishware and cookware is an option for everyone or a priority for all. However, I do think it's an important conversation to have, especially for those of us who are putting time and money into hormone issues, weight issues or any other health challenge.

What are endocrine disruptors?

Most importantly, listen to today's episode in full. In short. they are exogenous chemicals that interfere with any hormone action. That could include blood sugar balance, thyroid function, fertility, fat burning and so much more.

What I've bought for my own kitchen:

Skillets, pots & bakeware from Le Creuset (in Indigo)

For less expensive options, choose stainless steel or cast iron. Glass is also a good bakeware option.

Weck for glass storage containers

Bee's Wrap reusable food wrap

As I add baby gear to the mix, I'll be sure to share my choices and why I made them.

629: Forward Momentum & Infinite Possibility
27:01

Forward momentum and infinite possiblity. Two phrases and inspire that hell out of me. In today's episode I want to share with you some of the biggest lessons I've learned over 5 years building Primal Potential and 5 years improving myself.

As I was outlining my thoughts for today's episode and reflecting back on the hard moments and the times that everything felt hopeless and stuck, I took a break to watch The Biggest Little Farm on my Delta flight from Boston to LA. Immediately, I saw the connection.

At one point, one of the main characters says,

The beautiful complexity of our land is alive with infinite possibility.

Oh man. Yes. The complexity of my life is alive with infinite possibility and it's true for you, too.

We have to CHOOSE forward momentum. We have to choose infinite possibility.

Sure, there are other options. We can stay in the problem. We can stay in our frustrations. We can focus on things we can't change. But the fact remains that your life DOES have infinite possibility. Are you charging forward?

I hope you'll tune in to today's episode.

627: Your Choices Are Only As Good As You Are
26:27

If you want to double your progress, triple your growth. Your health, your choices, your relationships and your life are only as good as you are.

I made a poster for my office that says, "If you want to double your business, triple your growth. Your business is only as good are you."

The other day, someone emailed me to say that they don't know what I mean by this. How does one grow? How do you triple your growth? How can you double your progress with anything related to personal growth?

Today I'm diving into this idea, what it means to me, how I practice it in different areas of my life and how you can, too!

626: Focused and FIRE
20:23

Are you focused ENOUGH? Are you focused on the things that will make a difference?

Most of you know I have a 5 month old labrador puppy named Rumi. He is a HANDFUL. On a recent drive to visit family, I was listening to dog psychologist Cesar Milan and was fascinated when he shared that dogs in 3rd world countries don't have the behavioral problems we see in more affluent countries.

Why? 

Because they are hungry. 

And that got me thinking about focus and boredom. If you aren't focused on something - if you live your life kinda bored, going through the motions, THAT'S when we see maladaptive behaviors like overspending and overeating.

Drama.

In today's episode, we're going there. We're talking about it. We're talking about getting out of the rut and becoming HUNGRY for something more in your life! It's time to get focused and creating meaningful change in your life! Stop waiting!

625: Are the Wrong Questions Holding You Back?
25:05

I've pointed out to a few clients this week that they are asking the wrong questions. They are solving for the right thing. Most recently, a client said, "I can't figure out why I'm so inconsistent".

Wrong question. You're solving for the wrong thing.

When you ask why you're so inconsistent, you're looking for evidence to support the problem. What you should be asking is, "How can I be more consistent today?"

In today's listener Q&A episode, we're diving into your questions and a few times, we're exploring how the question can be shifted to be way more empowering and effective.

Questions Tackled In Today's Episode:

Is there an update on EB's experimentation with CBD? How is that going? Has she noticed any changes?

What does EB indulge in that IS worth it??

I don’t drink coffee, but can I do bulletproof hot tea?

What are good ways to keep a mindset focused on consistent effort over time?

How do I change a lifetimes worth of habits?

How do I get control of my mindless eating so I can lose weight for good?

How do I break free from analysis paralysis?

You don't have to struggle. We can ALL create personal freedom and independence from struggles, setbacks and limitations. In fact, we must!

In today's episode, we're talking stepping beyond the things you think are in your way. We're talking about opening your mind to explore new options and going beyond your comfort zone into possibility.

If you feel limited by your health, your body, your finances, career or anything else, there are options. There are things you haven't considered.

It's time to set yourself free!

If today's episode speaks to you and you'd like to learn more about the microbiome, gut health and a side-hustle that can serve others and set you free, I'd love for you to join me and Brooke Thomas on Monday July 8th at 6pm ET. To register, use this link

Too many people are remaining behind the walls of their fears. They are keeping their lives small by choosing to stop everytime they bump into fear of judgement, fear of failure, fear of loss or fear of missing out.

622: Creating Success After Struggle
39:07

You can create success after struggle. Don't let fear of failure or past experiences get in your way! Dozens of people have reached out to me this week expressing doubt in themselves.

They don't want to invest in the 12 Weeks to Transformation only to give up or drift again.

They're questioning whether or not this can be different.

When I ask people what they want or need, they almost always lead with the past, the story and the struggle.

On today's Q&A episode of the podcast we're answering all your questions along that theme: quitting, drifting, fear...all of it!

620: It's Not Your Plan, It's Your Perspective
01:09:43

It's not your plan that's the problem, it's your perspective. You don't need a new plan, you need a new perspective.

Last Thursday, I opened up our Summer 12 Weeks to Transformation to the wait list and we had an awesome live webinar about getting out of your own way.

Prior to the webinar, I sent out a survey to everyone on the list and asked them two questions:

  1. What is keeping you from reaching your goals?
  2. What could I do to help you?

In the webinar, we talked about the most common barriers. We talked about money. We talked about fear. We talked about inconsistency.

Today, I'm sharing part of that free training with you AND I'm opening up registration for our summer 12 Weeks to Transformation!

619: How to Go to the Next Level
37:00

Are you ready to go to the next level? Are you tired of struggling? Today you're going to hear from one of my 12 Weeks to Transformation clients about how even though she had lost weight, she was still really unhappy. She didn't feel like she was in control of her life.

Instead of settling for the struggle and making herself a victim of it, she USED the struggle and the tools within the 12 Weeks to Transformation to go to the next level.

She's happier than ever. She's lost weight. She feels empowered. As you'll hear her say, she's transformed her life over the last 10 months. She's getting up earlier, she's working out more, she's drinking less, spending less, saving more, losing weight and taking great care of herself while enjoying the journey.

618: Does Your Life Feel Like Groundhog Day?
45:54

Does your life feel like Groundhog Day? Like every day is pretty much the same as the last and you're just going through the motions, not living the life you want?

I've been there and I'll say this: I refuse to live that way anymore. Life is too short. Our potential - YOUR potential - is just too huge to settle for the same-old life you don't love.

https://primalpotential.com/618/

Today is another listener Q&A episode and Sarah and I are diving into your questions! Here are some of the topics we're tackling:

  • That groundhog day feeling - I tell myself to slay the day but every day feels just like the one before and I can't shake the feeling!
  • How do you differentiate between an addiction and a bad habit?
  • What's the most transformative non-fiction book you've read?
  • At 57 years old, is there still hope?
  • What is the best way to burn fat around my hips, butt and thighs?
  • How does contentment come into play when you have big goals?
  • What is your mantra?

Are you living your life or are you choosing it? Are you just going through the motions or are you being intentional about creating exactly what you want in every area of your life?

Today you're going to hear directly from one of my 12 Weeks to Transformation clients about how she has become militantly on her own side. She's decided to get out of her own way and step into her potential while loving herself and her journey.

She didn't bully herself into transformation. In fact, she was gentle. She was patient. Understanding. And also: drama free and determined.

If you're wondering if you can do it, the answer is YES and today's episode will help!

615: Growth without the Grind?
38:17

You know "the grind"? That feeling like you're always working on something, that "effort" is "hard" or you're just not enjoying the journey? It's all hustle, all pursuit, no pleasure?

I've certainly been there. In today's listener Q&A episode, we're answering a bunch of questions including several about how to balance growth & progress with contentment and really enjoying life and the journey of each day.

This is such a critically important topic and I hope you'll take a listen!

https://primalpotential.com/615/

Questions in Today's Growth without the Grind Episode:

  • How do I balance what I want most with what I want now? I kind of just want to chill out and get out of the grind.
  • Are there any foods you never allow yourself to eat? (I reference this episode on Soy Story)
  • What do you think about something like the 21-Day Fix from Beach Body where you eat specific portions from specific-sized containers?
  • I have persistent cravings. I want to get healthier and I want to enjoy the food I'm eating, but how do I fight these cravings?
  • How do you learn to be content with what you have?

614: Stop Complicating, Start Simplifying
30:02

Stop complicating things. It's holding you back, slowing you down and overwhelming you.

Today we're talking about practicing simplicity in your thoughts and actions - I promise you it will fast track your progress! Whether you're thinking about changing what you eat, improving your health or fitness, losing weight, starting a business, paying off debt or enhancing your relationship, complexity is the enemy of progress!

In today's episode we'll talk about a new paradigm around progress and I'll help you catch yourself when you're adding unnecessary complexity and help you get to your simple, effective path to progress.


https://primalpotential.com/614

Stop Complicating, Start Simplifying

People complicate things to justify their inaction and support their excuses.

Complexity is the enemy of execution.

Stop adding more when less will do.

613: No More Missing Out on Vacation
48:26

Do you struggle with not wanting to miss out? Do vacations, travel or evenings out get you worried about that line between deprivation and over-indulgence?

Travel used to be a total train wreck for me. I was constantly worried about food. I worried about eating too much. I stressed about not enjoying things enough and feeling like I was on the sidelines, deprived.

I really saw it as either/or - either I indulge and feel frustrated with myself, or I don't and I feel like I'm missing out and deprived.

Last week, I took a vacation in Bermuda. I shared a lot of pictures in my Instagram stories and posted daily recaps in our private (free) Primal Potential FB group. Today, I'm sharing the mindsets and strategies I employed to ensure that I didn't ever miss out AND I felt amazing every single day! You never have to feel like you're missing out again AND you don't have to return feeling like you "blew it".

611: Creating Big Change & Refusing to Settle
41:57

If you want to make big change in your life but you aren't sure how - this is your show. If you're going through the motions & want to break free, tune in!

Today I'm talking with Rob Murgatroyd about his decision to refuse the status quo and his unwillingness to settle for anything less than a life he loved. We're exploring how he walked about from a successful chiropractic practice and embraced uncertainty so he could create the life of his dreams instead of settling for a routine he was no longer enjoying.

Rob is so full of powerful truths and empowering mindsets. He serves up some tough love, reminding us that we can certainly continue to tell the story of why we can't do something but we're also free to stop telling that story and start to focus on how and why we can.

https://primalpotential.com/611/

Tips for Creating Big Change

Ask yourself these questions: 

What would it look like if this was easy?

What would it look like if this was fun?

What would it look like if this was elegant?

Learn more about morning pages for starting the day with intention & opportunity.

One of Rob's tools for creating big change in his life is to use the mantra "I belong here". While I love that mantra and think it's an awesome tool for stepping up and creating confidence, what I love most is what he said next. He said that he says it over and over (for weeks and months) "until it starts to feel real..." That's the ticket. We create these new stories and we repeat them until they feel real. Whether the story is, "I make great choices" or "I am a creative energetic problem solver" or "I belong here" - you repeat it and repeat it until it starts to feel real. (Tune in for more on this)

608: 3 Tools for Any Change
31:10

Here's the great news about change: while there are thousands of tools, tactics and approaches, you don't need to collect all of them to win. You don't need 75,000 strategies. You don't need to know more. You certainly don't need to know anything. Creating change requires just a small handful of tools that you actually use.

That right there is one of the keys - don't delude yourself into thinking that utility requires novelty - that something new is more valuable than something familiar that you just haven't implemented consistently.

In today's episode I'm sharing with you the 3 most common tools I've been using with my 12 WT clients to help them create change in their lives. I think you're going to love them! You don't want to miss today's episode!

https://primalpotential.com/608/

3 Tools for Any Change:

  1. Move from a problem focus to a solution focus
  2. Leave the past out of the present
  3. Less drama means more success

607: How to Recover Faster From Any Setback
20:37

If you want to hit any goal in your life, you have to know how to recover faster from setbacks & frustrations.

The other day, I had a big setback and I was emotional about it. I cried. I got mad. I spent hours focused on how I didn't understand another person's behavior or thought process.

Then, I had a bit of an "aha" moment. I came to the realization of a powerful perspective shift that I now think of as my "drama shut off" valve and I'm sharing it with you on today's episode!

605: Tough Love on Excuses & Overwhelm
19:54

Need a little tough love to overcome your excuses and break out of a pattern of feeling overwhelmed or frustrated? Today's motivational minisode is serving up a dose of the truth:

You don't need to change your circumstances. You need to change the way you interact with them.

Too many people are talking themselves into their problems and their past patterns. As they do that, they're talking themselves OUT of their potential and today it's time to STOP!

602: How to Hold Yourself Accountable
34:37

Need to hold yourself accountable? Looking to get better at following through and staying consistent? Today's episode has the tools you need!

"Masterminds" have become super trendy in the past few years - it seems like everyone in business is starting or joining a mastermind. Undoubtedly, they can be great tools for growth.

Because of their popularity, there are a lot of components that have been identified that make masterminds work. Fortunately, we can take these components and incorporate them into our own lives, even if we aren't part of a mastermind or group!

Today, we'll explore those components and look at how you can use them in your own life or with a family member or friend!

The book mentioned in today's episode is Meet & Grow Rich by Joe Vitale & Bill Hibbler

Steps to Hold Yourself Accountable

In today's episode we explore questions, strategies and tools to assist you in building accountability. They include:

  • What do you want to gain?
  • What is your singular focus?
  • Ask yourself questions instead of giving yourself advice (Chasing Cupcakes is a great tool for questions to ask yourself)
  • Be confrontational without being emotional
  • How can you help you?
  • How can I help you?
  • Inner Counsel Meeting from Meet & Grow Rich

What will you put into practice from today's episode?

601: The Struggles I'm Still Overcoming
42:43

What does "no mud no lotus" mean to you? To me, it's a reminder that all the dark times & moments in my life can take me to a new, brighter, higher level - if I choose to let them.

My life hasn't been easy. In fact, I've been deeply unhappy and hopeless for most of it. It stings a little share that. Because I'm so open about my struggles with depression and obesity, I get a lot of questions about how I came out of the struggles.

There are also a lot of people who assume that the struggles are behind me and it must be "easy" now.

In the spirit of this "no mud no lotus" theme, today I want to share with you some parts of my past struggles that I'm still practicing overcoming. We're talking about fear of judgement from others as well as judging others. We're talking about drama and the perspective of abundance versus the perspective of lack.

Struggling to get yourself to keep the promises you make to yourself or feeling like it's just super hard to stay the course.

In today's episode, I'm going to talk about how reframing the idea of "struggle" can be the very thing that makes all of this so much easier!

Your gut health is impacting everything. What happens in the gut does NOT stay in the gut. It impacts stress, anxiety, body composition and more!

For too long, we've thought about the microbiome as exclusive to digestion, absorption, constipation, diarrhea, bloating and gas. That's just not true.

What happens in the microbiome influences every single aspect of your mental health, your hormones, your body weight, immune system, metabolism and everything in between!

If you have questions, please feel free to let me know!

Probiotic strains that target brain health & mood include but aren't limited to:

595: How to Slow Down When You Think You Can't
47:02

I think you need to slow down. I know I need to slow down. However, those of us who most need to slow things down are usually the ones who think there's just no way.

This is one of my favorite podcast episodes of the year because we're talking about the tendency to rush through our days and our lives with an operating system of "too much at once".

In today's episode, I'm sharing my incredible conversation with Sandy Vo about how to slow down, especially when you don't think you can.

You know how when your computer starts to run slow, you close down all the programs that are open & running in the background when you're not using them? You can do that with your thoughts. What thoughts are open and running in the background, draining your energy and darkening your mood? You can turn them off. Turning them off doesn't mean deleting them anymore than closing Skype when it's not running means that it's gone forever.

If you are ready to create more space in your life and in your mind, you want to carve out time for this episode! DM me on Instagram and let me know your favorite part!

What have I added to the facts?

What else could this mean?

What are your core values? Do you show up with honesty & kindness for others but not for yourself?

Do you feel like you're a great leader in you work or for your family but you aren't leading yourself?

Today I'm talking with leadership expert Kareen Walsh about how to become a more effective leader of yourself and you won't want to miss it!

One of my favorite parts of the conversation is when Kareen reminds us all to give ourselves permission to show up as the version of ourselves we want to be TODAY.

She talks us through what we can do when we know our core values, or we know what we want them to be, but we aren't making choices accordingly.

15:06

Are you keeping yourself from big wins in the areas of your goals because you settle for little wins? Are you taking the perspective of "good enough" or "better than before"? You might be holding yourself back in a big way!

I started thinking about this as my Winter 12 WT clients went through their good/better/best challenge and then just a few days later I heard Chris Harder talking about not letting easy money keep you from big money.

In today's motivational minisode, we're diving into an honest look at how we hold ourselves back and what we can do to break free from the confines of our comfort zone and small wins.

588: Carb Sensitivity & Sugar Addiction
41:17

What is carb sensitivity? How do you know if you're carb sensitive? In today's episode, we're answering listener questions about carbs, sugar addiction, the best foods when you're on a budget and much more!

Questions tackled in today's episode include:

  • How can you tell the difference between being sluggish from something you ate and not getting quality sleep. I'm struggling with knowing if I'm getting enough/quality sleep.
  • I've listened to your episode on Identity Journaling but after I answer the questions,I'm not sure where to go with it. What do I do with my answers to the questions?
  • If I take your advice and ask myself, "What is possible?", what do I do with the answer?
  • What I struggle with most, I identify as "sugar addiction". I know that I would be healthier if I never ate refined sugar, but it's a mind game where I feel deprived instead of feeling elated that I'm choosing to do good things for myself. I just don't know how to get out of my own head.

  • I have no willpower. I listen to your podcasts and although they are so good, nothing is helping me. I lose 2-3lbs and then go on a blitz of eating poorly. At 58years old, I don’t think anything will help me.

  • How can you tell if you are sensitive to carbs or not?

  • What are the best nutritious foods available for a person currently living pay check to paycheck?

587: Busy is Bullsh*t
27:51

You aren't too busy to take care of yourself or to prioritize your health.

Sure, you might be able to tell yourself and others that's the reason you aren't making progress or doing the work, but it doesn't make it true. It's just a convenient story - a permission slip you write yourself for being inconsistent.

The reality is - taking great care of yourself increases your bandwidth, it doesn't decrease it. It gives you more energy, more focus, more determination, clarity and efficiency.

I love the Zen saying about meditation. "If you don't have time to meditate for an hour each day, meditate for two hours." If you think you're too busy, you need to adjust both your schedule and your perspective!

There are so many other elements to this permissive lie and we're exploring them all on today's episode!

https://primalpotential.com/587/

A Few Tips If You're "Busy"

  • Stop using "busy"
  • Ask yourself if you're creating a life you love or just keeping yourself busy
  • Are you getting the results you want?
  • Create more space
    • Talk more slowly
    • Think more slowly
    • Move more slowly
    • Meditate
    • Eliminate obligations that you aren't passionate about

586: Personal Growth as a Drug of Choice
52:15

Get ready to expand your perspective about personal growth! Get ready to get excited about it and more enthusiastic in your pursuit of it!

Today, we have Tara Romano on the show! Tara and I met a few months ago and when I saw her Instagram post where she said that personal growth is her drug of choice, I just had to have her on the show.

Personal growth is a gift, not a burden. It's something you do FOR yourself, not TO yourself. It's not a sacrifice.

In today's episode, we dive into both personal growth, the gift of it and overcoming insecurity and comparison.

Some of Tara's personal affirmations include:

  • Interupt the pattern
  • It's not that serious
  • Stop making up so many stories
  • I'm a perfect work in progress
  • I'm a magnet for all I desire
  • My life is perfect as it is and I'm capable of making any changes as I desire
  • All I need is always taken care of. I am safe.

584: Fear of Failure & FOMO
34:40

Fear of failure and fear of missing out (FOMO) reflect incomplete truths - emotional corners of the truth - and we can overcome them! I've been having a lot of conversations with clients about fear and today we're breaking it down so we can set ourselves free!

https://primalpotential.com/584/

Questions from Today's Episode:

  • What's possible?
  • What stories do you tell yourself (or excuses do you sell yourself) that talk you out of your potential?
  • What else is true?

Fear is a liar because you are in control! You create your results! Fear of failure is a liar because you have the power of choice! You don't have to fear failure because you control it with your own actions! The fear is a distraction!

Instead of submitting to the fear, challenge it with those questions. Instead of limiting yourself to the boundaries of your fears, choose to press on in spite of any fears.

"The fears you don't face become your limits." ~ Robin Sharma
