You are going to be riveted and you will never forget this conversation!13 years ago to the day that we recorded this interview, my guest was sentenced to life in prison!

This episode is going to cause you to really evaluate what's IMPORTANT to YOU, WHO and WHAT MATTERS and maybe a few of your priorities will shift.I invited one of my best friends into the studio for a wide-ranging talk about important parts of YOUR LIFE that you may not usually pay much attention to.Jenna is special, dispensing life advice through her enormously successful podcast, as an acclaimed author, educator, and thought leader. She's got a new book out, HOW ARE YOU, REALLY?

Rest is counter to what many success-driven people are programmed to do, but you need to find it or run the risk of crashing hard.Jenna also delves into why it's important to know yourself better and what questions you need to ask to make that happen.  Am I HAPPY?What does SUCCESS look like for me?Am I FAKING enjoying life?How CONFIDENT am I?We also get into SEASONS of your life and TIPPING POINT MOMENTS where what used to make you happy may not be the case as much anymore.  We're also going to ask you to think about BURN OUT. Are you a person who can function even when you're burned out? What are you doing to RECHARGE your mind and body because sooner or later, burnout will catch up to you.Some of you also don't have the best relationship with your bodies. Pay attention to what Jenna has to say about the relationship between your soul and your body.How many of you fear losing MOMENTUM? Jenna's got some great insights if that's one of the things you're worried about, too.We also spend a lot of time talking about your VISION about what you want for your life. When was the last time you thought about...How do you block out DISTRACTIONS?  How do you handle OTHER PEOPLE'S IDEAS about what you should do?  Does your vision vibe with your VALUES and YOUR IDEA OF SUCCESS?And most important, when was the last time you CHECKED IN WITH YOUR VISION and asked HOW SHOULD IT FEEL?So many BIG QUESTIONS to think about this week!Don't just listen to what Jenna has to say. Absorb it. Process it. And then take the actions you need to give a great answer when somebody asks you, “How are you, really?”

    TRAUMA and PAIN takes on many forms and is an extraordinary CHALLENGE many of us face daily.  This week, my guest GABBY BERNSTEIN and I are going to talk about PAIN and TRAUMA, digging deep into a subject that's affected a lot of us. In fact, I talk to a lot of people, and I've seen how we're collectively reeling from trauma more than ever.   That's why I asked Gabby to sit down and shed light on a topic that remains elusive and damaging for many people.We're going to unmask the nature of trauma, and Gabby will help you TAKE MORE CONTROL of your life and HEAL from the traumas that are hurting you.Gabby is well qualified because she's no stranger to trauma. She's overcome extreme challenges in her life, including the difficult battle of beating addiction and getting sober several years ago.Since then, she's published several NEW YORK TIMES bestselling books on spirituality, personal growth, and radical life change, including her new book HAPPY DAYS, THE GUIDED PATH FROM TRAUMA TO PROFOUND FREEDOM AND INNER PEACE.Gabby explores the disconnect between outward success and difficulties you face trying to reconcile how the world sees you vs. how you see yourself. That CONFLICT is a breeding ground for trauma, and shedding light on it can help ease mental stressors that can easily descend into trauma.One of the most important things we talk about are TRIGGERS AND PATTERNS. Reacting to things that have happened in our past creates triggers like disassociation, shame, or denial, and Gabby does a great job of breaking things down to help you recognize these things in you.She also reveals how we can heal ourselves from trauma by connecting with our INNER CHILD and PROTECTORS. Childhood trauma often carries forward to adulthood, and we develop protectors to do just that, protect us from long-standing traumas.There's also a physical price to pay for trauma. Gabby has got important insights on THE TOLL TRAUMA TAKES ON OUR BODY.And she also shares exercises we can do to lessen physical trauma, including the “heart hold” and “tapping,” which is a technique I've been a fan of for a long time.This week is a HEALING week.Gabby helped me during our talk, and when you listen, I have no doubt SHE'S GOING TO HELP YOU TOO.

I've asked one of my truly dearest friends, Jamie Kern Lima, to GUEST HOST the show and interview ME about my highly anticipated new book, THE POWER OF ONE MORE, coming out June 1. (You can pre-order now).As you might guess, Jamie knows me really well, so not only am I fielding some questions that only Jamie knows to ask, I'm also going to REVEAL things I've never told anyone before, publicly or privately.Nothing was off the table!Jamie and I are going to give you a big sneak peek on some of the things you'll read in my new book, THE POWER OF ONE MORE, coming out of June 1.I WROTE THIS BOOK TO HONOR MY DAD. He was a KIND AND LOVING MAN who battled alcohol addiction early in my life. Throughout the years, my dad became the person who had the most profound influence on my life. After he beat his addiction, for 35 years, HE TAUGHT ME LESSONS, many of which are in the book… lessons that I still use to this day.I wasn't expecting her to ask me about what I struggled with the most growing up. I had to think about it and like a lot of people I know, I had to fight through so many kinds of CONSTANT FEAR.Fear I wouldn't fit in. Fear that I wasn't good enough. Fear that I'd be found out as an imposter. Fear my dad would get hurt while he was drinking, or God forbid, he would accidentally hurt someone else.  I'm also going to tell you how I've leveraged a life full of ONE MORES to become successful.I'm especially grateful to Jamie for asking me about HOW MY DAD SPENT HIS LAST DAYS and what I learned after he passed that had a huge impact on me.  I hope there are no rules about shedding a few tears on your own show because I definitely broke them...Let's just say when I get to the end of my life, I'm praying that I turn out to be half the man my father was.This week's guest host unpacked a lot in the 90 minutes we spent together. THANK YOU, JAMIE… my friend who got me to say things I never thought I would.

Instead of hiding, Lisa details how she CONSCIOUSLY chose to develop a STRONG SENSE OF SELF that changed her life forever. That radical transformation led to a complete overhaul of how she approached those challenges. In fact, changing her mindset was one of the driving forces that she and her husband used to grow Quest Nutrition by 57,000% in 3 years, ranking it as INC. Magazine's #2 Fasting Growing Company in North America in 2014. Lisa reveals several practical strategies you'll want to hear.One of those is "KILLING THE SQUIRREL," a metaphor for doing away with distractions in your life. She also explains why using GRATITUDE the wrong way can be a dangerous pitfall in your life.I've often said the toughest battles are the ones you fight between your ears which is why Lisa's story about battling the MEAN GIRL VOICES in her head resonated with me, just like they will for you.Lisa also talks about the importance of pushing forward and doing your best by focusing more on HOW YOU DO THINGS instead of worrying about the outcome. Stripping away that need for VALIDATION is one of Lisa's primary keys to RADICAL CONFIDENCE and a lesson you'll want to hear.The bottom line is that Lisa preaches a pragmatic brand of COMMON-SENSE THINKING.If you're looking for EFFECTIVE SELF-CONFIDENCE STRATEGIES that will not only make you THINK but that you can put into ACTION, my interview with Lisa Bilyeu an hour well spent.

Bob talks about dealing with PTSD, EMOTIONAL TURMOIL, and PIVOTING to find a NEW SENSE OF SELF. Every one of us has faced life-changing moments like this or will soon enough.  That's what makes our conversation PERSONAL, ESSENTIAL, AND COMPELLING.  I want you to listen and reflect on how something like this applies to you. We also talk about practical ways to think about and achieve meaningful weight loss.  Hint…it all starts in your HEAD before you see results in your WAIST!  Bob and I also get into building GOOD HABITS, the RIGHT ENVIRONMENT, and SUPPORT TEAM, which are critical elements to losing and keeping weight off.   The bottom line is, BOB HARPER knows a lot about HEALING.   Listen closely, because he can TEACH you a lot about it, too.

     Like many of you, I'm a person of STRONG FAITH AND CONVICTION.  My LOVE of my GOD means everything to me and has brought me PEACE, PURPOSE, and STRENGTH throughout my entire life. Before I tell you about this week's guest, PASTOR JOEL OSTEEN, I want to make it clear that I RESPECT and ENCOURAGE you to practice your faith and spirituality in any way you see fit. That said, I wanted to share this UPLIFTING interview with Joel because it goes way beyond any single religious persuasion, exposes you to NEW IDEAS, and most of all, GIVES YOU A LOT TO THINK ABOUT. For more than 20 years, Joel has combined his love of the ministry with a savvy approach to media and business to build one of the LARGEST FOLLOWINGS in the world.  The Lakewood Church has become one of the most popular visitor destinations in Houston and currently draws more than 45,000 WEEKLY ATTENDEES.  Joel's international broadcast following has expanded into more than 200 MILLION HOUSEHOLDS in the United States alone. And his dedicated SIRIUSXM channel (Channel 128) and NIGHT OF HOPE events worldwide continue to amplify his messages to millions of more people. Incredibly, Joel never set out to do the work he does today.  The story of how he reluctantly filled in to deliver a sermon for his ailing father that turned out to be the FULFILLMENT of his DESTINY is a powerful example of God's hand at work that you need to hear, along with the importance of CONQUERING YOUR FEARS to live the life you were meant to lead. We talk about facing dark seasons in our lives, and how we can OVERCOME CHALLENGES and by holding onto our faith.   Joel also reveals how he prays, why GRATITUDE is a big part of his conversations with God, and the role of DESTINY in our lives. If you struggle with CONFIDENCE (and most of us do), Joel offers advice on overcoming your fears and doubts by mastering self-defeating limitations. We also touch on LETTING GO of things that add nothing to our lives and FOCUSING ON WHAT MATTERS MOST, a lesson all of us NEED TO LEARN. JOEL OSTEEN is a tremendous force for GOOD IN THE WORLD, and after you listen to this week's episode, you'll know exactly why.

    Few people are more qualified to talk about POLITICS and NEWS MEDIA in America than this week's guest, MEGYN KELLY. For the past several years, most of us have watched the stunning transformation of these parts of our society from the comfort of our living rooms.  But this week, Megyn gives us a NEWS INSIDER'S VIEW on some of the most high-profile political events and personalities in recent history. It's part of a larger look inside who Megyn Kelly is and how she has dealt with being a CHARISMATIC media figure over the past two decades, including dozen years spent at Fox News and later, on NBC's The Today Show.  She remains in the public eye through her current daily podcast on SiriusXM. During her broadcasting tenure, politics and the news game became FULL CONTACT SPORTS, and Megyn often climbed in the ring to take on heavyweights in bouts that gained her the reputation of asking tough questions and demanding HONEST answers.  Perhaps the best known of these was her ongoing back and forth tussles with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump.   Megyn's CANDID take on the CURRENT STATE OF JOURNALISM will confirm what many of you already suspect.  You'll want to hear what she says about BIAS and how it rapidly accelerated during the Trump era. You'll also appreciate her insights about President Trump, the nature of identity politics, and how the public reacts to manipulative news media in and out of their own echo chambers. On a personal level, Megyn talks about her SUPERPOWER and what she attributes to much of her success.  She also offers advice about HOW TO RAISE WELL-ADJUSTED KIDS and what's worked best for her as a mother of three children. We spend a fair amount of time on a couple of essential but often overlooked questions in our lives.   Is Megyn happy? She is. And what does it take to make her happy? It's a simple answer, but much like the rest of who she is, Megyn's answer is SMART and STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART. As it should be for all of us. I hope you'll enjoy listening and learning from Megyn as much as I did. She remains an INTELLIGENT voice in a lot of important discussions going on right now.
