What if I wasn't worried about money? I go into the costs of this whole venture so far and what would I do if I wasn't concerned about money? I'm definitely thinking about what I might loose vs what's to gain. And I tease the idea of “keep who I can help in focus.” Administrative: (See episode transcript below)Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitStart podcasting!

Timestamp 8 45 and 38 seconds PM. On this episode, my two topics are, what if I wasn't worried about money and keep who I can help in focus. It is time to up grade, not upgrade renew my yearly, excuse me. Oh my gosh. So rude. How rude is that? I apologize. podcast audience for my rude yawning. What if I wasn't worried about money? It's time for me to renew my yearly coaching program with Russell Brunson's 2CCX Two Comma Club X. I'm not sure where I ended up here. Um, all of a sudden the zoom went dead. So anyway, I was saying my internet died or I, gosh, I'm tired. It's only 8:48 PM and I'm exhausted. This whole entrepreneurial stuff is, uh, sure is a lot of work.Mischa Z: 02:51 And by the way, I'm with my $2,000 revenue. So I've got 998,000 to go the 2000. It's not quite 2000. Cause as I was saying, I had a couple of refunds due to somebody, um, purchasing three tickets on accident. And so of course I've invested some money into hiring a who to help me, um, build out the funnels. So definitely, uh, that along with, um, you know, the yearly coaching and with, uh, with, um, some tech, a bunch of monthly text subscriptions, G suite Vimeo, Bitly Canva, oh my gosh. The list, the list of them's awesome. I can't even keep track honestly. Um, you know, investing in our work logos, um,LLC'ing all the stuff. It's been a year of financial investment with no, no immediate reward. Usually my ventures there's cash flows sooner rather than later. Great thing about the mortgage business is I was very fortunate since I was good at it. Most of the companies funded in my marketing campaigns, but I never really had my own business. I did own well. That's subjective. No, uh, is subjective the right word.Mischa Z: 04:46 Um, the list, right? So, you know, that's, uh, you can bring your mortgage customer list around, but hard to sell it, perhaps the less you golly, I am sorry. Start a company, which I did try, but that all, that was a tough time. I, I think I did a podcast episode about that about if not, I'll do one anyway, I started a net branch, which I, it doesn't matter. Just know that it did not... Circumstances did not allow it to thrive and succeed. So I had some pivoting where the heck, what the heck was I talking about? Oh, so what if I, what if I wasn't worried about money? So it's time to re up and, um, I'm looking at another, you know, large financial outflow. It's probably why I'm yawning. Cause it's not exciting to talk about, but you know, Hemming and hawing and talking to source universe, whatever. And,Speaker 2: 05:58 And, uh, and, um, you know, the thought came to me, what would I do if I wasn't concerned about money? If I didn't care about the financial aspect of it, I'd probably just I'd have already renewed for next year. I'll be perfectly honest with you if I didn't have the limiting belief or the fear of, of finances, financial insecurity, right. So that can mean a few things. And I definitely think this is a worthy conversation. One is that, uh, you know, I invest the money and I have no financial return from that directly. And then it's perhaps could be perceived as a waste of money, shall we say? Um, but what if I didn't care? What if I was like, Hey, this is super fun. I'm learning a lot. It's awesome. Great. No financial validation comes as a reward or, or it's a losing proposition on a balance sheet. What If I didn't care. And I was like, yeah, it's an education. Heck with it, get paid to go to school. Or, and what if there was no direct correlation to further financial success? So I couldn't be like, oh yeah, I learned all this stuff. Although I didn't monetize directly, at least I could tie it to, oh, I got a job or this or that. Right.Speaker 2: 07:39 And then there's also the idea that, you know, it could very well being an investment that does monetize at some point. What would I do if I knew that the payoff was there? Would I do it? Heck yeah, I do it right. So these are interesting thoughts to contemplate. I'm definitely very clear in my head that I was like, oh, if I didn't care about money, honestly, like if I didn't care hacky, I do it. Cause it's kind of fun. It's stretching me learning a lot. So I was like, is that the tell to just do it right? Is that the tell or I don't know. I know it's interesting. So I'm contemplating it realistically. I probably will sign up again, but I'm definitely thinking, wondering, um, and, and this lack, it also is tied to this idea of lack, like looking at what... I interviewed this guy. I can't remember his name. Yes. I can. Francis Piche. Francis Piche.Mischa Z: 08:55 French dude, but he just, coincidentally, I interviewed him a couple of days ago. He said...Mischa Z: 09:02 You know, this, the whole idea of limiting belief of like, he was telling me a story about how he was worried about money. And so didn't make the decision to pivot and take a trip or invest in some class or something. I can't remember exactly what it was, but, um, it came back around 10 years later, the same scenario and he had some regrets by not doing it. And the same scenario came back to him and he found himself with the same reasons why not to do the thing. And he's like, oh my God, it hit me. Like, I was worried about what I was gonna lose, what I was gonna lose versus what I might gain. And, uh, as soon as I realized that I had signed on and I took the trip wherever it was. And of course the connections or the things that came of it were powerful and well-worth whatever financial investment he put into the trip. So I was like listening that I'm like, oh yeah, I'm definitely thinking about as far as the coaching is concerned, what I may lose versus what's to gain.Mischa Z: 10:24 And, um, so it's a sort of a lack, a lack mentality versus an abundance mentality, I think is how people might say that. Um, and then also like there's some other interesting things around it. Um, those are the main points. The other ones are sort of fleeting in my mind right now, but it's like this idea of sticking with it, you know, um, not wanting to look bad, not wanting to fail, you know, not... Seeing, I'm definitely seeing the, the downsides of things. Like I'll never come up with a product good enough to work, whether it's coaching, informational products, physical products, like I've got nothing that can work, but not just trusting that something might come of something might actually might drop, drop in and be like, here's this. Right? So, um, just fear of some just air and out some fears, I believe we would call that a little bit wound the wound versus scarred, but, um, heck with it, I say. Welcome to the journey. I am probably past trying to be cognizant of timing of, of, um, my episodes these days, for whatever reason. And so I believe I'm on or about the eight minute mark. So I will save, keep who I can help in focus, keep that in my mind's eye. That's definitely helping me with this decision as well. So I want to address that next step aside. Okay.Mischa Z: 12:30 So we've done. What if I wasn't worried about money and what if I wasn't worried about money? I would be all in on the gear number two of the coaching, because it's been awesome and amazing, and I've learned so much, but I do have fear financial fears.

A short reading today in “A Course In Miracles”. Which is like a day off - A national holiday! But it is still super juicy nonetheless.

In this case it's forgiveness and freedom of the mind.Administrative: (See episode transcript below)Get A Course In Miracles Here! https://amzn.to/3hoE7sACheck out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitStart podcasting!

A C I M for short, a C I M. And so I am currently reading a course in miracles, combined, combined volume. That's composed of the preface, the text, the workbook for students, the manual for teachers, the clarifications of terms and the supplements. I did the workbook for students, which was amazing. And I'll do it again, but it's basically 365 exercises one a day for a year and are some highly recommended, thumbs up, go get a course in miracles. Don't think, go get we'll find, think about it, but I would just say, go get it and start on that ASAP. So one of the things about a course in miracles is as I'm reading through the text, the text portion I can read the text portion is composed of chapters, and then each chapter has multiple sections.Mischa Z: 01:42 So I try to read a section a day in the morning and it can take anywhere from a half an hour to an hour usually. And it's anywhere from two to four pages, super deep, super heavy, super weighty, like dence. The word I'm thinking of. It's very dense, dense content and does a great job of connecting me spiritually and just, you know, setting the tone for the day and getting the may thinking about, you know, the, the, the things bigger than myself. Um, get me out of my selfishness, um, stuff like that. And it's really cool. I need it in my life. I came to a point in my life where I need that to, to connect with something bigger than myself every day, preferably first thing in the morning, usually with some prayer and meditation, and then I dive into the course in miracles and every now and then the section will be five or six pages.Mischa Z: 03:02 It's like, oh my God, what an order. I can't go through it through it. What a daunting prospect. And um, every now and then I will get a very short day. Today's a short day, chapter 30, The New Beginning. So it's, the very beginning of chapter 30. And there's always an introduction at the beginning of each, at the beginning of each chapter. And the introduction is usually a page or less. This introduction is simply a long paragraph. So this morning I was like, oh my God, the introduction, because I just read the introduction one day. And then I start on the section one, the next day, section two, the next day you get it. And that's how I've been doing it through the whole, the whole text portion. And I'm on page 625 of the text. So this isn't just like a new rule I made up this morning. No, it's been a rule. And in place, it's like a, it's like a national holiday. That's what introduction day is. It's like a national holiday. And if you've made it this far in this episode, which I really hope you have, I wanted to read the introduction because the introduction is, JUCIY, here we go.Mischa Z: 04:28 "The new beginning now becomes the focus of the curriculum. The goal is clear, but now you need specific methods for attaining it. The speed by which it can be reached, depends on this one thing alone, your willingness to practice every step, each one with a little help. Every time it is attempted and together will these steps lead you from dreams of judgment, to forgiving dreams and out of pain and fear. They are now not new to you, but they are more ideas than rules of thought to you as yet. So now we need to practice them a while until they are the rules by which you live. We seek to make them habits now. So you will have them ready for whatever you need." And what a great day off.Mischa Z: 05:46 I very much liked the sentence, "The speed by which it can be reached, depends on this one thing alone, your willingness to practice every step". And I just, I like that. I, I find that so many things in life, it's like, here's the steps to success, whatever that means, you know, here's your steps to completing this task. Here's your steps to achieving this goal, whatever, do the steps you'll get the result. And I love how that is what it's telling me right there. Like, Hey, guess what? The freedom that you seek is there for you depending on my willingness to practice every step. And then I also loved that the sentence paragraph one sentence five, “And together will these steps lead you from dreams of judgment, to forgiving dreams and out of pain and fear”. And my guess is many people who listened to this will go that's who ha that's silliness. Like I don't want to be out of my, for my dreams of judgment to forgiving dreams, but I do. I do, as I record this right now in this moment, Mischa wants that. I want to be led from dreams of judgment. I want to be led to forgiving dreams and out of pain and fear. And I believe that that is a worthy goal to achieve.Mischa Z: 07:29 Um, what else can I say in that regard? Uh, do I need to talk any more about this? Um, do do do now. I need to practice them awhile. Oh, so the very last sentence, “We seek to make them habits. Now you, so you will have them ready for whatever you need, for whatever, for whatever need, you will have them ready for whatever need. And I love the, "for whatever need". It's pretty broad. That leaves a lot of space for application of said steps. Um, oh my gosh. I am so excited for the, for the further rest. Oh man. I can't even believe I've made it to page six hundred and twenty five, three pages a day. One section a day. Ah, life is good. I do very much love and enjoy the "A Course In Miracles". I would encourage anybody to get it. Have a great day.

I got to speak on someone else's summit for the first time today.“The Forgiveness Zone Summit”. …Turns out it's a lot of work to have a lot of hair. How do you say “extra curricular”? Putting myself out there a little bit is leading to some opportunities. My big lesson from being an interviewee.Administrative: (See episode transcript below)Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitStart podcasting!

That's what I'm going to tell you about. But a cool day today, I was asked to speak on a sonnet. So that's what I'm going to talk about. How fun is that? Well, let's get right to it. Well, first off, let me just say that I was on a zoom meeting and, um, as my hair gets longer, I've officially, um, not had a care cut for, um, for, uh, a year and a half, and so my curls are in full effect, but I was on a zoom meeting this morning and well, the, the, as you, as a man, never really having long hair, I never understood the amount of effort that can go into, into managing said long hair. So hair ties, things like that, and really conditioning the long hair. So I've got curls and they can get super, um, knotted up.Mischa Z: 01:09 So you've got to, you've got to do some deep conditioning anyway, the day after can be awesome. Like the day after day one, the next day of the deep conditioning. Oh my gosh. Like full Robert plant mode. Now I see why girls, when they've got date night or whatever, or, or, you know, they've got a big night coming out, why it's so important that they do their hair and why they, it takes time. It just takes time. It takes time in the shower, all that stuff. So it's a process. It's a process. So anyway, any ladies that I've been married to and, or dated over the years, I apologize for any pressure that I have put on you to speed up due to hair care scenarios, um, anyhow, uh, onto it. So Connie, um, what's called his last name. See if I can find it quick.Mischa Z: 02:19 Connie asked me to be on her summit and what was super cool about that as well, was that I been very busy in my summit and, and doing these things. And so I hadn't been many on many of the extra, extra, extra correct. Correctly, extra what's that word? Oh my gosh. You know, when you're an extracurricular Yael is I can't even say it. Oh my gosh. It's late. I'm so tired going on. That summit took so much out of me speaking on that summit. It was the first I imagine once you get used to it, it's super easy, but energy-wise extra curricularly. Gosh, darn it.Mischa Z: 03:11 Email me the emails in the show notes, email. How you say that correctly? Oh my gosh, this is embarrassing. I hit pause so I can look it up, extra curricular, extra curricular activities. Anyhow. Um, so I get asked to speak on the summit and, uh, yeah. Time, effort, energy. Um, definitely, definitely, uh, tired as I record this. Um, oh yeah. So I had, I forgot why after all that talk on extra curricular activities, I forgot what I was leaving. I brought that up, but there's all these extra curricular activities available on the two CCX coaching, you know, opportunities to network, to learn, to grow, to bounce ideas with other people within the, within the coaching group, other coaches really cool times. And so I, the other day went on one of these extra curricular activities and, uh, someone who'd seen me on this in this coaching group for the last year was like, Hey, be on my summit. So I was like, of course I will. So that was very exciting to put myself out there a little bit and then get like a cool opportunity to, um, be asked to support someone's summit and to share my message. So her summit is super cool. It's Connie Macintosh Connie. And let me find, uh, Connie and Alan Macintosh. And there's someone who's called the, um, the forgiveness summit, which I think is beautiful and their tagline is getting out of your own way. So I get to speak on what inspires me to help others.Mischa Z: 05:18 How, okay. And what was the next question? So the first one, what do you feel holds? What do you feel holds people from becoming the best they can be? I got to speak to that. I don't want to take too long on this episode and I would encourage you to log into the summit when it becomes available to hear my answers. I'm sure I'll take an episode and give my answers, but worried about, uh, oh, how do you help them overcome those feelings? And then a lot of time people hold feeling resentment and blame deep inside. How could you help that person become successful in all parts of their lives? I got to speak to that, which was super fun. How great are these questions in your opinion, how does a global crisis affect individuals? We've seen incredible successes and huge losses. How does this happen?Mischa Z: 06:21 That was fun to speak to that both on an individual. And I touched politically on it just for fun, just for a second. And then do you have any other advice for our audience today? So I got to answer all those, the fun, fun, fun part, or the other interesting thing that developed was there's bonus rounds on these interview, on these summits oftentimes, right? There's the free interviews and then there's the upgrade bonus interviews. And she originally didn't ask me to do the bonus interview when we started. And I was like, oh, that's interesting. And so it turns out I added so much value on interview. One that she's like, Hey, I want you to do the bonus interview. And so I got to do the bonus interview, which she called "more with Mischa" and, um, I got to go deeper on some of the strategies and tactics that I have for dealing with resentments, um, for, you know, um, what was the thing she said about, uh, about how to help others about, um, about what do you feel holds people back from becoming the best they can be?Mischa Z: 07:40 And I went more in depth into tools and tactics for that. So that was super fun. Oh, and being my first summit, the big, big takeaway that I had was whenever I needed to pause and find my place in my notes, or think from it a minute, excuse me, I was super uncomfortable with the long pause. So I would cut a corner or I would just skip over or forget where I was, where absolutely next time I will not be afraid of the long pause in breathing, finding my spot, finding the point I wanted to make. So I kind of rushed through that being my first summit in being an interviewee on my first summit. Um, but no big deal. I feel like I was able to serve her audience and, um, bring valuable content. And I got to earn my way into the bonus interview. And then I did miss, uh, at least one important prayer that I wanted to put on there, which super bummed me out. But so be it. I prayed, how can we be of service? What can I bring to table beforehand? So clearly that's what the universe wanted me to do. So anyway, there you go. Hair stories. I'm learning how to manage a big mop of hair. And I got to speak on my first summit and there's a couple of lessons from it. Peace out.
First, a quick blurb on loving my home yoga practice. And second,A Course In Miracles was super juicy today and sparks a lot of thinking. “Seek not outside yourself”…Or stop trying to fill the God sized hole with shiny objects. I'm all in on that idea right now. With one of my main thoughts being: Just because we let go of wanting shiny objects It doesn't mean we won't get them. It just means we won't care. But that can be a hard spot to get too.Administrative: (See episode transcript below)Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitStart podcasting!

The home yoga practice is strong and thriving. Um, uh, two full. I do two, at least two sessions a week or two, I guess two days, two of the days right now, I'm currently doing it on Friday and Sundays, an hour, an hour home practice. That's very good. Has got forward bands back then, side bends, twists. Um, what else it's supposed to have in there? I don't know. I have a buddy below who says the things that make a good yoga class forward, bends back bends, side bends, twists. And what else? At least that perhaps more, but it's good. Rigorous. The breathing is awesome and I'm feeling the benefits. I believe I will add in a third day, I can lift my arms above my head. Again, I can't even believe I'm admitting that during the peak of the COVID after walking for a year and not doing any yoga or pushups or, or anything like that, I was just walking and walking and walking and I found that it was indeed hard to take my shirt off.Mischa Z: 01:33 I was like, this is insane at the end of the day. I'm that stiff because I think I was, I will. The other thing, not only was I doing less or zero yoga, um, or a lot of the other, you know, I was doing all this construction on my house and my free time not doing any of that. Um, what was I gonna say? Uh, I just, oh yeah. Sitting on the computer and doing all this to CCX Russell Brunson, coaching summit, podcasting, all this stuff w pulled me to the desk a lot more. So lots more typing, lots more staring at screens a lot more, perhaps hunched forward. Rolling my shoulders, needing to work on my posture, sitting sideways, sitting crooked, heck just sitting a lot more. I went from barely ever sitting to sitting a ton and no, none of the stretching and twisting and all that.Mischa Z: 02:39 And so my body was like, "yo dude, get after it, get your routine together." So anyway, I feel, um, it's nice to feel flexible and have that illusory body strength that yoga can provide didn't mean to go that long about that, but it is true. Um, I was going to talk today. The rest of this episode is going to be, was going to be a pure A Course In Miracles episode. Been a while since I've done one of those. So I wrote some notes, the section of chapter 29 that I read today was so juicy. I was like, eh, I just took so many notes. I thought, you know what, I'm going to try an episode and see if I can expand on the sentences that I wrote down. So, ACIM from the text section, chapter 29 The Awakening, section seven, seek not outside yourself. Not outside yourself.Mischa Z: 04:05 First thing I think about that as I'm all in on that right now, I'm like, yeah, go within find that God within that capital S self packets in my intro of my podcast, but, but filling that God size hole that's in me with the God within. Right. And, uh, so what I think is really interesting about that is somebody else might already have that section of their life sort of shored up and whole and complete and good. And so this part of the course in miracles night bite not jump out as the them as strongly might not jump out as you as strongly or resonate as much. So I just had that awareness. I was like, oh, wow, that's pretty cool. Like this section is just compelling me to write down all these sentences. Um, so paragraph six.one, "all idols of this world were made to keep the truth within from being known to you."Mischa Z: 05:16 "All idols of this world were made to keep the truth within from being known to you and to maintain allegiances to the dream that you must find what is outside yourself to be complete and happy". "And to maintain the allegiances to the dream that you must find what is outside yourself to be complete and happy." So all those shiny objects that are out there for me right now, it can be since I'm single women, um, it can be new levels of success or new success, or the summit success, or looks likes, follows, or validation from the 2CCX crew. My coaches, um, you know, financial financially finding financial success again. Um, cause it's, it's been a little bit and that's okay. And all these things, if I can, if I can fill the God-sized hole with God, with infinite intelligence, with whatever, then those allegiances to the dream, to the outside shiny objects. Um, I'm not looking at those for the short term happiness, um, or to make me feel complete. And I would even go so far as to say that could be, you know, your girlfriend doing what you want her to do in the moment. Like she's acting like you want her to, or your boyfriend or whatever, whatever way you swing, um, guy, girl, or your whatever, I'm going to save it.Mischa Z: 07:12 I believe you get what I'm saying. Or, you know, your kids a loser in the moment or doing what you want, acting, how you want having success, whatever it is not being a pain in the butt, blah, blah, blah. Right? It's like, oh yes, I'm whole life is so great. That can change in a heartbeat. The more source that happiness is within seven.one, the more that's from within the more long-term happiness completeness, we will feel. Seven.one. Let us forget the purposes. "Let us forget the purpose of the world. The past has given it." "Let us forget the purpose of the world. The past has given it" 7.24. "Otherwise the future will be like the past. And, but a set, a series of depressing dreams in which all idols fail you one by one and you see death and disappointment, everywhere."Mischa Z: 08:19 Everything we get attached to, we will lose. Right? Everything that I think I can't live without, I will have to learn to live with without, including my health, my hair life. As I know it, the way that I currently relate to this world. Um, but forget the, let us forget the purpose of the world. The past has given it, which means that whatever purpose we thought there was, we don't know it was illusory. It was. People are full of crap. They tell us that they know what the purpose is. Oh my God. Cause no one's ever living up to it. To change all this eight.one. "To change all this and open up a road of hope and of release in what appears to be an endless circle of despair you need, but to decide you do not know the purpose of the world." Oh, that was just the bomb set right there.Mischa Z: 09:32 My gosh, I've got so much to go with times that I lost track of how long this, this one was going. And then I was going on my yoga rant to start. Um, all we need to do is decide, I do not know the purpose of the world. And I love that, man. I love when I'm in the mindset of more will be revealed, who knows? It's not for me to know. I don't know. It's so big who knows what's going on out there? Like how much freedom that creates in me. And that can be, it can be a tough, that could be a tough wall to get over or a tough wall to breakthrough. Say it however you want. But when I truly believe at none of that man, how freeing is that, then I don't need to know. And I don't need to pretend that I know for you or anything.Mischa Z: 10:28 So good. Nine dot six. "The fear of God is, but the death is, but the fear of loss of idols". Nine, six, "The fear of God is, but the fear of loss of idols". Nine.Seven, "It is not the fear of loss of your reality." I I love that, man. It's like this idea that if I go all in on God or source or the infinite or whatever, again, call it whatever you want. I'm just going to say God, if I go all in on God, that I'm like what I have to let go of success. I have to let go of girls. I have to let go of money. I have to let go of all this stuff and I won't get it, all these things that I'm unwilling to go of perhaps. And the cool thing is if we can let go, if we, if we can stop fearing the loss of those idols, all those shiny objects who knows what it is for you, long-term marriage, or I have no idea, healthy kids or dating, lots and lots of multiple girlfriends who knows what it is, can be so many different things.Mischa Z: 11:37 But, um, "the fear of God is, but the fear of loss of idols." Yes. So the point is, if you can let go of those, the fear of loss, and then you just don't, it doesn't mean you won't get it, but you just don't care. How cool was that? Like, I don't care if this or that happens or I get this for that. And if I do great, if I don't, so be it anyway, I better chop chop nine dot eight. "But you have made of your reality, an idol, which you must protect against the light of truth." I mean, how true is that you have made that you have made of your reality and idle meaning fear of losing what I have or not getting what I want.Mischa Z: 12:32 Salvation ten.two. "Salvation seeks to prove there is no death and only life exists. That's a deep one. I'm not even sure how to talk about that. Let's see. I believe the idea is that when we're attached to these idols and these illusions and these things, they are constantly going away and changing and follow falling apart and quote unquote dying or going away, or we're losing them, fear, death, all these, right? Like wrap it up however you want. And so if we find salvation we're able to find source and be so full of God and source that we let go of all of this illusions. It there's no illusions, there's nothing to lose. There is no death and fracturing and, and all these things and change. So love that. Hey, I think I did a pretty good job. Thank you. Explaining 10 dot two. 10.5 in the last one. "Let him remind you of his love for you and do not seek to drown his voice in chance of deep despair to idols of yourself" more of what is a different spin on the same, turn the source. And, uh, don't drown out source with the shiny objects with the sirens call.Mischa Z: 14:21 Oh my God. There's so much up there. Everybody have a great day. Actually. I won't stop right there. I want to say what I said. So you got to hear me talk about how powerful yoga is to keeping a nice, flexible life and a empowered life. And then also, um, some ACIM goodness, there we go. Have yourself a great day.Register for the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummit
I continue with the thought of, “What am I supposed to be doing with my life?” and “Why the belief is should be anything different than what I am doing right now?” And if I can strip off judgment, strip off expectations, strip off societal pressures, strip off familial pressures…I am freed.Episode notes:Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitMischa Z : 00:02 On the previous episode, I've referenced to the question of “what am I supposed to be doing with my life?” I'm 53. I've wondering for decades. With brief moments of, oh, I I've found my calling most of the time. It's like, “what is my calling?” Uh, but that, uh, but that what I'm supposed to be doing with my life is what I'm doing right now. And if I can strip off judgment, strip off expectations, strip off societal pressures, strip off familial pressures. Um, what I'm doing right now, creating podcast episodes. Um, I just did my bio yesterday. Um, you know, all these things, uh, they get to interview for somebody else's summit be interviewed.Mischa Z : 01:05 Yeah, that's what I'm supposed to be doing right now. That's it. Why the belief that it needs to be different? And I like that question. And I like that concept. Finding acceptance of the moment, what I'm doing. I do not need to be anywhere different, differently, different. I believe you understand what I'm saying. So the strategy learned how to love what I'm doing right now, because that is what I'm supposed to be doing right now. That is literally what God has me doing right now, or the universe or infinite intelligence. So the tactics around that. I talk about them all the time. I do.Mischa Z : 02:01 So then we graduate to, as I am now doing what I'm supposed to be doing, my calling, whether I believe it or not. As I'm working on my calling. This is so funny. Thank you for listening and indulging me. I hope you're having as much fun as I am. I do, because this is fun and I'm working hard to be of service, to carry a valuable message and, um, to lead by example to be the mad scientist and go out and try new things and report back. Um, but the question is I just really had this awareness. I was like, wow, I'm in the heat of the battle with this whole 2CCX thing with this whole Russell Brunson high-end coaching thing, just getting done with the summit. And now there's a lot, lot more to do and potentially a lifetime worth of work. And I'm like, well, if one day at a time, and I like this concept one day at a time, if I'm willing to keep at it, how do I not have it be pressure filled? How do I have sleepful nights? How do I find contentment where I am within that process? Not feeling that I'm behind not feeling that I need to do more, not feeling that I need to be farther along than I am. Not, not competitively looking at where I stand, where to relative to my perception of others.Mischa Z : 04:10 And you know, the more I can keep in the moment, how do we keep in the moment? How do I keep in the moment by keep my thoughts to being of service, pray to be of service or a God, what do you have me? What will you have me do here? Where would you have me go? What would you have me do? And what would you have me say? And to whom, for example. Um, totally lost my train of thought. My son's alarm is going off in his room. It totally threw me off hold please.Mischa Z : 04:48 And how can I find an appropriate amount of, to do or to do's or work or work life balance. I dunno if work-life balance is the right thing to say, but, you know. Can I be happy putting in, let's just say five solid hours towards it a day and not feeling the need to do more? And let me tell you five solid hours that's legit. Five solid hours that's legit, like there's little breaks in there. There's lunches, there's distractions. There's, uh, you know, this, that, and the other thing. So the reality of five solid hours, some people people might be thinking, well, gosh, I'm doing 10 or 12 hour days. Yeah. I'm sure that you're doing a 12 hour day. That's highly focused consistently. I find a five hour day is much more productive. I'm just saying, so how do I not fall into that trap of need more or needing to be further ahead?Mischa Z : 06:02 Anyway, these are just, this is this, these are things. So of course I've got my standard tools of prayer, meditation, journaling, um, service, you know, talking to my coaches, my mentors, all these things, um, you know, learning, growing, trying to, and in that vein I have, um, I have a, uh… I'm interviewing Daniel Packard and we're going to talk about just that thing. We are going to talk about just this thing. So I'm super excited to learn some new tactics to help the mental, the mental, the mental, uh, hopscotchery. And, uh, I'm going to end with this and just a little bit of a rant here that, um, that oftentimes I am happy and comfortable and content, and it's all good, but it's when the shiny object takes over. I need to have X amount of money, X amount of success, X amount of looks, X amount of likes.Mischa Z : 07:13 I need to, you know, just have, I can feel the pressure. What's the little, the bio, the little bio pressure, amplified pressure everywhere in my life. So now I've got the little pressure of having an email sequence done. That's amplifying the pressure and other parts of my life. And so how do I acknowledge the email sequence pressure and understand that in the big scheme of things, if it takes me an extra two weeks and I lose, you know, 50 of my 400 new list, like it's not the end of the world. Um, I'm just at the very beginning. I don't know. This is just the stuff that was rolling through my melon a bit disjointed, um, trying to have fun people, trying to have fun. Welcome to the, um, to the fray. Those ahead. Thank you for leading the path. Peace out. Start podcasting!

20 years ago today was 9/11. I remember where I was that day, what I was doing, and what I was thinking…It is perhaps not quite what you think. I have changed a lot in that 20 years and I talk a little bit about it.Episode notes:Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitMischa Z : 00:02 September 11th, 2021, 20 years ago was September 11th, 2001. I was 33 years old. I was living in Berkeley, California. I had, was married to Dawn, the lovely Dawn who was literally the most beautiful woman I had ever seen in my life. I swear to you when I met her, I was dumbstruck and, uh, we had a good run married for 12 years together for 14 or married 11 together, 13, something like that. Anyhow, we had our first baby Cooper who was six, seven months old, perhaps. Yes, right in there. I was sort of on the, not sort of, I was on the front end of my sales career. So I was five years into my sales career, maybe six years, something like that. 3, 4, 5, 6, 5 or six years into my sales career. I was aggressive and I worked a lot of hours and I was trying hard. Telemarketing ,cold calling, going door to door, walking into, into offices, asking for the C T O the chief technology officer.Mischa Z : 01:48 I was selling tech. I was selling data lines, data co-location, um, all this sort of stuff, infrastructure, the data lines and the warehouse infrastructure for all the tech, all the dot-coms and I was full A type mode. And I remember that day, very poignantly. And perhaps for not the reason that you think, perhaps not the reason that you think. And that is really what I want to discuss on this episode is what I'm going to discuss on this episode. So I had had a wife, brand new baby. I believe I had finally purchased my first car with a loan.Mischa Z : 02:52 How funny is that? Up until that point, I had been paying cash for my cars. And it was all about work. What did I have to do to succeed? So I'm sitting there that morning and, um, perhaps I was getting ready to go into the office or, or maybe I was working from home initially, but, there it was on the news. One of the twin towers had been hit by an airplane and I'm watching it. And I'm thinking about work and I'm thinking about work. And, and then as it goes on the tower collapses, the second building had been hit and the tower collapses. And I'm almost hesitant to admit it, but this was my thought, are they going to close the office today? Am I going to get to work today? I've got deals to work on. I've got prospects to talk to, I've got cold calls to make. Let me add it, let me at work. And I was really, really concerned.Mischa Z : 04:21 Are they, are they going to close the office? I remember talking to my boss and perhaps I had been talking to other coworkers. I think I was, but definitely the boss. And I was like, come on, we got to keep the office open. Like I got work to do. I got sales to make. I had very little compassion. And definitely self-centered, I believe you would call that at the time. Cause I was really worried about me and how it was going to affect me. And then I'll tell you another thing. That's very interesting. I suppose it was a couple of years before that perhaps when lady Di had passed away, she died in that, in that car crash and the tunnel or whatever. And it had Don and I probably were not married yet, but definitely living together. And she was very upset as many women were back at that point because, you know, she represented a lot of things for a lot of women.Mischa Z : 05:36 Lady Di did and I was, I had no compassion, no empathy, no what's the other word. Uh, sympathy, sympathy, empathy. One of those two words is appropriate. Um, perhaps both are. But I remember just telling her to mock up, you know, effectively, I might not have said buck up, but I would probably was like, why are you so effective? It's just, you know, it's just a blah, blah, blah or whatever. Just, you know, completely unaffected, completely showing no sympathy, no compassion, no empathy, and very closed off from my old feelings and my own feelings. And, uh, I actually apologized to Dawn for that years later. And I, when I did, I don't think she'd remembered, but I remembered, I was like, man, I was asshole. It's like, or I remember I was at a, at a meeting one time and someone was upset that they, their cat had died. I was like, I grew up in Wyoming, barn cats died all the time, blah, blah, blah. Again, no compassion, no empathy, no sympathy. And, and um, and that was the case on the morning of 9/11. And I was actually fairly, fairly upset that I wasn't going to get to work that day. And then I was concerned about how long as the office going to be closed.Mischa Z : 07:17 And, uh, I was telling the story to somebody today actually. And they said, oh yes. The... So fast forward to today, I am a different person. Like I just ha I can have compassion, empathy, sympathy. I can hold space for people. I can...just, it doesn't like, I think back in the day, right, when Dawn was upset that princess Diana passed away, I could not handle that. Upsettedness. And so I would have to pull up this book, this wall, or this arrogance or this edge. And yeah, I'm a different guy today. Like someone loses a pet that sucks, you know, or a parent dying or step-parents, or God forbid a, you know, a brother or sister or a child or, or just all this stuff. It's like the littler things that I can have sympathy for.Mischa Z : 08:27 And then also I don't need to shut down my emotions or run and hide when big things go down. So what did my friends say today? He said by rugged individualism stopped working for me. It was a great way to say it. My rugged individualism stopped working for me. Honestly, today, all politics aside, like I hope you can appreciate that. I don't really care about the politics of the matter. And, uh, I, I'm very grateful that I can see things from a more nurturing, compassionate, as I've said, um, empathetic sympathetic standpoint, and I can cry with people. I can cry by myself. I can, I can not have to put up a front of rugged individualism. Of this strongness, or it doesn't bother me. Or if things don't bother me, it's not out of arrogance. There was arrogance around all that before. Arrogance and selfishness. And that arrogance and selfishness has absolutely tempered in me. That's what I've got to say. Um, I believe life is amazing. I'm stoked to be alive, gifted with the spark of life with spirit. Everybody have a great day. This September 11th. I hope you have grown personally yourselves since that day.

There you go. All right, Francis. Good morning. And it's Francis, is it Pish?Francis P: 00:00:12 Yeah. There's never like a wish, you know, you can put the accent on everything, but not always. So it's, [inaudible],Mischa Z : 00:00:19 You know, I was originally going to say that, but I was like, I'll sound ignorant if I do that, butFrancis P: 00:00:25 See your intuition was right. Yes.Mischa Z : 00:00:29 Follow it. Yeah. I love that thought. Um, so your, um, I asked you before we hit record where you were and your obviously French nationality, what's that? French Canadian.Francis P: 00:00:45 French Canadian. Yeah. That's a big difference.Mischa Z : 00:00:49 Big difference. Yes.Francis P: 00:00:52 So born in Montreal.Mischa Z : 00:00:53 So tell me, what's the big difference about between, when you say that, what comes to your mind? The big difference.Francis P: 00:01:00 I can explain you with one word and I think you're going to explain it. You're going to understand it. So one time I was asking some French people, cause they're always, they always laugh about how we speak, uh, and that we speak like more patient. And then I said, oh really? All right. So I said, just tell me how you say Spiderman because in Montreal, if it's Spider-Man it's Spiderman or we're going to translate it, then we're going to say [inaudible] so it's like French or English. And, uh, and so I asked, I asked him, I said, how do you say Spiderman? And he said, speed up, man. Speed up, man. So I said, do you want to be saved by speed? That man, or you want to be saved by Spiderman? So he laughed. So that's the difference just in one word, because he would say he cheers to that right now. You know, it's like, oh, are you Spiderman or speed ah man,Mischa Z : 00:01:51 Wait a minute. And I love that. Who do I want to be saved by clearly Spiderman.Francis P: 00:01:55 Yeah. Or see that man doing the shopping and the backing. And then that's that, that's all these speeds. So I'm like, wow, that's very, uh, that's very manly. That's really good. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but you know who you want to be saved by Now, you know? Oh, your speed a man. Okay.Mischa Z : 00:02:23 Um, are you, so you're in Laguna beach, are you permanent permanently in the U S right now and have been for a while or just,Francis P: 00:02:34 Well, I do. I, uh, I do have a visa for five years because I have a business that's established here, so I can always renew it every year or every five years, which is really beautiful and amazing. So my permanent address is in, uh, Vancouver and now thanks to, thanks to COVID. I stayed a little bit longer and uh, I mean, I can say as long as I want really that's, that's what that's, that's the beauty. So, uh, you know, every time that I traveled and I come back and I show my visa, I'm very proud because it's an automatic access that like, okay, good. There you go. No questions asked. Yeah.Mischa Z : 00:03:11 Yeah. Fantastic. And this, um, what percentage of Canada is French Canadian where there's, you're speaking French in that deep French roots, if I'm saying that?Francis P: 00:03:26 Uh, well, I mean, there's a, I believe it's, I don't, I don't know if it's going to be recorded. I think there's 11 provinces, uh, and some territories, but in Quebec that's a one in a major province. I think I'd say, you know, you have Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia. Those are the major provinces in Canada. And so I would say percentage wise, it's hard to say, I think we there's about 9 million people in Quebec, um, and 37 in Canada, the whole country. So, you know, you can imagine that California is actually as big as, as a whole country of Canada. And then, um, in Quebec I'd say maybe 75% of it would speak French. So let's say nine, 7 million out of 37. So maybe a good 25%, 20%, 20% maybeMischa Z : 00:04:21 AndFrancis P: 00:04:22 Estimate, but Montreal, most of the people in Montreal would speak. Uh, they can definitely speak English. There's even a part of it. That's the English part of, uh, of Montreal. But if you look at the whole province in itself, that would be more French than English. Yeah.Mischa Z : 00:04:38 Okay. And your, your, um, your, uh, sociology or, um, geography professor might be a little upset right now that you didn't know the exact numbers.Francis P: 00:04:51 I, I know like now I feel, but it's, it's, it's been a while. I mean, I know I'm usually good with numbers. I think I know my population pretty well. Like in general, I always like to know like what the, how many people are living, you know, in the greater area of a big city and then the city itself. But, you know, it's always fascinating to see the concentration of people just in these little spots, which, you know, if you look at Canada, it's a huge country, but all people are at the bottom of the line. Like that's where all people are concentrated right. On the border, right. On the border.Mischa Z : 00:05:26 And is that a resource or just, uh, a resource that's where the most resources are in the country or is that a, uh, climateFrancis P: 00:05:36 Climate? I think it's mostly climate. Yeah. And also, you know, if you look at the path, you know, just where it started with, uh, San on the St. Lawrence river, you know, every, all the exports and ports were coming through that. And then, you know, it went up to, up to Ontario and then you have the big, great lakes. So it's, that's what we share with you guys, the, you know, around Michigan and all of it. So, uh, we share these, these great lakes. And then, uh, I, I, that's one of the reasons, if you look at the Vancouver on the other side of the west side of Canada, then it's pretty much the same thing. As you know, it's, you know, where the Berard inlet is and where all the boats are coming from Pacific Asia.Mischa Z : 00:06:18 So in America you've got, well, historically like the north, the south, right? The, the there's the Confederacy, what do we call the north? The, um, the union, let's say, um, is there that, has there been that sort of tension between, uh, like French speakingFrancis P: 00:06:40 Historically? Yes. In long time ago, but yeah, it was the upper Canada and lower Canada, so that's all, that's how they called it. And, uh, and then I think what United, the whole country is the, uh, railway. So, uh, so Canada was established in 1867. Then, uh, if you look at it's really a history for me right now, like going backwards, I think it was in 1760, that there was a, a war between French and the Brits. And, uh, we lost. And I think since, since then, that that became predominantly a little bit more, uh, Anglophone if you will. But we know that that's where people wanted to keep their rights. And so at one point, you know, even not too long ago, I think it was in 1995 and there was a referendum to see if people wanted to separate themselves from Canada. And, uh, and then it, uh, it was very, very close. I think it was 49, 50 1%. Yeah. So we, so it stayed, it stayed, but, you know, there's a, there's a lot of controversy as well because, um, I think that government or Canada spent a lot of money to try to convince all, uh, people not to, not to separate and of course some caravans of people, but it was very, very close, very close. So there was a closest, I think that it was, uh, for the separation or the independence, if you're, how, how, howMischa Z : 00:08:06 Old were you at that? At that point? IFrancis P: 00:08:08 Was, uh, I think 16, 17. I remember that, you know, I w I wasn't able to vote at that time then, uh, but everyone was, I think, you know, for us, it's 18 years old, you can roll. So it was, it was something that everyone was watching. Like that was pretty important.Mischa Z : 00:08:25 Were you, did you have opinions about it at the time, or were you like, let me go out and hang out with my friendsFrancis P: 00:08:32 At the time I had my opinion and I think I've had the chance to travel. I was, I think I was more pro independence in a way, but not none in the way that I felt that it was, you know, saying, oh, you guys are wrong or whatnot. It was more about preserving the culture, but then at the same time, over time, you with all the travels that I've done, I think it was I've realized that, especially when I went to Sweden, because I studied five months in Sweden and what was fascinating about the countries that they were only eight or 9 million people, and they were speaking many languages, Swedish, Finnish, English, sometimes German, French, and you're thinking, wow, you know, these guys are awesome and they never, and never felt that they wanted to preserve their culture because you know, that at the time unwell was company from, uh, Volvo, uh, many big companies that were established in, in Sweden, small country, almost the size of Quebec.Francis P: 00:09:34 And so I felt, you know, if you really, if you, if you travel a lot and you, you, you will, by default love your culture. And you'll never be scared of losing it because look at the Sweeds, they, they spoke five languages. And so, so I kind of gave a different perspective and I felt, you know, you can definitely be integrated then, you know, I, I, I would say before you, you, you are worried about your own culture, make sure you live your own culture, you know, and then, and that, and, and then, then that way, then you don't need to worry about it because if you're, if you love your culture, of course, like the people that the kids are going to speak French and whatnot. So, yeah, but I mean, what I remember, what I remember for me is, is that at the time the politicians were a little bit too focused on, I felt putting like, okay, this is the bad side.Francis P: 00:10:25 Well, I don't know if I, if it's real, that's what I remember. But for me, what was important, it would have been kind of a thing. Yeah. And if I would have been a politician at the time, and I remember saying that to my friends, I said, let's not even focus on independence and just say, that's, what's going to happen. But first let's focus on economy. Let's focus on this. Let's focus on that. And then, uh, that's why I think they lost at one point years after when they try it again, because it's like, let's make sure that the base is strong before you can even think about that. And so, uh, but then of course, you know, these politicians were from, uh, a narrow that, you know, there there's some pride too, to talk about it, but I think that's the reason why they lost because they were too focused on that versus saying let's, before we talk about anything, let's just have a good economy, let's have this.Francis P: 00:11:15 And then we'll introduce that. So they, the, the party lost in the election. And I think that's the reason why, because they put too much emphasis on that. It's, it was, it's almost like you have to have a timing for it, but right now, I mean, I'm a citizen of the world. And I think, yeah, it's, you know, it's when you travel and you see, there's no, there's a beauty of different cultures. And I think what's important is really to integrate ourselves together and just appreciate it. And being curious about, Hey, you know, like what, what are you doing? And then, you know, I moved in Vancouver and I, it was a different culture, you know, just in terms of a, the number of Asian people, the number of, of, uh, and then you have the, the Britts, the, the British people initially, and now, you know, so, so it was great. Like, I mean, I love traveling. I love cultures.Mischa Z : 00:12:01 Yeah. I think that's such a powerful statement. Um, you know, I like the concept of don't, you know, if you embody your, your, uh, culture, you know, and then you don't have to have fear of losing it, and then there's the illusion of losing it anyway. Right. Um, but, but, um, how powerful, clearly traveling has been on you and the sort of the, you know, there's the concept sort of elusive, but that we're all one. Right. And if we can,Francis P: 00:12:35 Yeah, I will. I will always remember, Mischa is, uh, I'm pronouncing your name. Right, right. When I went to Sweden, it was really amazing because, uh, that experience exchange student experience was that in that city called wound, or at the time there was 90,000 people in the city and 45,000 for students. And, uh, and then for us, there's a lot of different cultures. And I will always remember one moment where it was a dinner and at the table, there was a Polish guy, French guy, uh, you know, woman and man, uh, UK Germany, like different. And, and, and all we talked about was pretty much the same thing. And we all connected with the same values, which is freedom, uh, compassion, dreams. And, uh, it was just fascinating that, you know, for me, it was the first time that I saw that, Hey, you know, I'm talking about the same thing, I'm from a different country, but we will all want the same. We're all United. And so it was really cool to see that too. And then I felt, man, we can all be together. You know, we, we all have these same human values and it was really cool to see. And so I, it gave me a lot of pleasure to see that and hope and say, wow, such a beautiful human race that we are like, we just, we talk about the same thing. We could be friends with anyone.Mischa Z : 00:14:05 Yeah. Yeah. That's great.Francis P: 00:14:08 Deep down. Right. Like when you, just, when you put aside the religion, when you put aside politics, you put all of the sides. And I think that it was, I heard that there was a study. I don't know if it was with, uh, Heineken, the beer that, uh, kinda, or I'm probably maybe I'm wrong, but that there was a, uh, maybe a TV show where people were not talking about politics and not talking about religion. And they all got along very, very well until they introduced the subject of, of that. And then people started to have some friction, friction, which, which, to be honest, if I compare it, if I compare Canada to us, I mean, there's a lot of beautiful things that I love in both countries. One, I think very strong as a value for Canada is tolerance because there's so many cultures.Francis P: 00:14:56 I think they, there was a magazine once that they say, well, who's the Canadian. Like, if you can, and then there was different, you know, they took a, uh, little cartoon and they just draw like what it would look like. And so you had part of it, east Indian, part of it, French Canadian. And there, it was all different. The unity was really the tolerance because everyone's sitting in the same melting pot. Now, if you look at us, I think one of the value that's really cool is freedom. And I think that people really want to, they stand by their freedom. And so for me, like, I, I just wished that in the world that people can talk freely about the side of politics that they have, that the religion is to me, it's more about why, why are you talking this way? What makes you think that this is, this is so good.Francis P: 00:15:43 Just in being curious, not judging, just being curious and say, oh, that's interesting. I didn't see it from that angle. I see where you're coming from. And, uh, I'll give you a really cool example. That again, in terms of culture really changed my perspective because in Sweden, they told us that, uh, I don't know exactly when I, I'm not sure if it's still being done, but the woman that are the mothers, when they go to the grocery store, they would leave, leave their children in the stroller, outside the grocery store. And so at first, and they say, yeah, of course, because for them, children are jewels of, of, of the economy, jewels of, of the society. And so they will never, ever even do anything against them because they're so precious. And so what happened is that the mothers that are leaving their babies in the stroller, other mothers are taking care of, of the babies while the mothers is inside the grocery store.Francis P: 00:16:43 So it's, it's almost like, yeah, of course, I'm going to take care of your kid and you take care of mine. I do my thing. I come back, everyone's protected. But at first I felt, and I imagine that like in Canada, us, you will be, you would maybe go to jail. They would say, are you kidding me? Like you left your kid, but, but the mentality was so different that I understood what it is to have a different culture. And who are you to judge if you're brought up in that environment? That's how you think since you're, since they won, you would not even, you would not even think that it's wrong. You would just say, yeah, of course. Like we would never do that. Like even a criminal would not even touch the baby because that's part of ingrained in their, in their mind. Yeah. So, so now when you do that, you're thinking, okay, so who am I to judge? Because if I was brought up in that same mold, I would probably have very different values, very different opinions, very different things. So when you meet other people from different countries, it's good to just be really neutral and say, Hmm, why are you guys thinking just curiosity, come out of with curiosity?Mischa Z : 00:17:49 What, what can I learn here? What can, what can, what can this add to my experience versus I need to change your way of thinking.Francis P: 00:17:57 Exactly. And, uh, and I think that personally, I feel, and that's just my opinion, but I think that America needs to be a little bit more like this it's it saddens me to see the polarity of people that are labeling themselves. Okay. Your red, your blue. Yeah. Okay. And, and, and it's almost, it feels like it's, if you're this color, then you will never change. And you're that type of person. And I'm thinking, well, that's just one politician this time. Do you know? It's, it represents a party. It's not a hundred percent of all the things, so there's good and bad in everything. And so let's just be a little bit more curious and what's the end goal. Everyone's wants to be happy. Everyone wants to have a good economy. Everyone wants to get along. Nobody wants to hurt each other. So then who's the best for that. And then, so that's my opinion, but I think so I feel like, uh, it's, it's important that people, you know, are not putting, putting labels on everything and say, this is your category. Don't talk to me. Hey, you know, we're human beings. So it goes back to, you know, the, the melting pot of all the people at the same table. And I think down deep down, people wants the same thing. They want the same thing.Mischa Z : 00:19:10 Yeah. I would agree. And I generally speaking, I mean, you have some outliers, but I think the, of course, you know, the, the, the 22, the 80% that band in there.Francis P: 00:19:21 Yeah, yeah. You know, most, most of us, or all of the same two standard deviations, you know, people far remotely on that line, but I mean, I think it's normal. It's also more yeah.Mischa Z : 00:19:33 Yeah. And then there's room for them to right. So exactly for them. Um, I, yeah, I think, I think, well, I want to, um, we can circle back around to this, but, uh, I, I just wanted to touch on a little bit of what you do and I like your, the resilient, I'm looking over here at your, at your website and resilience, the resilience element, or R E you've got, it's like breaking bad for any Americans or, you know, the breaking bad TV show. Uh,Francis P: 00:20:08 I heard about it. So what is it, solar? Why is that?Mischa Z : 00:20:11 Oh, well it's because breaking bad, they have that. They do the B I think B E. So they do like an element element as well. And then elemental sign they've localized it or whatever. It's really cool. So your R E is reminiscent of that.Francis P: 00:20:26 Good. Well, I wonder when did the show start? Cause I mean, this logo for me was started five years ago. So maybe talking right now. No, but you know, what's interesting is that R E when you, uh, when you look on the periodic table, it means rhenium and a rhenium that's, that's the reason why I became the logo because rhenium was at the time, the element that had the highest boiling point of all the elements. So it was the most resilient element of all. And then they also used it to launch rockets. And so launching dreams, launching, you know, there's, there's something associated with it. And it's also a, uh, it's a byproduct. So it's not like readily available like that. It's a by-product of different things. And so for me, when I describe resilience, I don't think you can say that resilience is resilience.Francis P: 00:21:16 So what is a native? And so there's five components to it. And to me, if you have a goal, if you have a big dream and you want to know what the components are to, to achieve this dream and this goal, well, there's five components and the five components are first one clarity. I need to know where you, where you are, where you want to go. Uh, the second one is conviction. So really the reasons why you want to accomplish something. If, if you don't have enough motivation, then that's not, as soon as you have an obstacle, you're just going to give up. And then the third one is certainty. You know, is that in your mind a certainty that this is gonna, is going to happen, or that if something, if your goal is not achieved, that the certainty is that there's always a lesson and that it's gonna lead you to something beautiful.Francis P: 00:22:05 Then the fourth one is commitment. So obviously you got to take some actions and on a daily basis. And I think when I described commitment, what I'm seeing in general, when people are establishing a really resolutions in the beginning of the year, is that their commitments are too big. Meaning, you know, it's too big of a chunk. Like they, they will not do any, any, it would not go to the gym for a year. And then they would say, oh, I'm going to go three times a week. And that's going to be an hour each. And then I think after two weeks, 92% of the people are actually just giving up on their, on their resolutions. So just let's have small chunks that with the compounding effort effect of, of, of that, that's going to create your goal and that's going to be easy to accomplish.Francis P: 00:22:48 And most of the time, it's just going to be motivated to spend way more than 15 minutes a day on something as an example. And then the fifth one is courage because you can do all of these things, right? Knowing where you're going or where you are, where you're going, have a lot of reasons why motivations, and then you don't have this certainty factor, certainty factor. It can also be, imagine if you had this certainty as a baby that knows they're going to know they're going to walk. You know, they never questioned, they know they're going to walk, but they could fall a million times, but in their mind, of course, I'm going to walk. I'm not going to crawl. I'm not going to say, oh, you know, I've, I've, I've tried it all. I'm stopping analogy, but for them it's of course, of course.Francis P: 00:23:33 Yeah. So imagine if, if in your mind, of course, I'm going to do it. Of course I'm committed to it. And so that's, that's certainty. And then, you know, when you do commitment, then of course, it's going to lead you to, uh, to your goal as well. And sometimes you hit the wall and that's where courage comes in. That's where the science of happiness comes in, where, you know, you can do the things to kind of raise your vibration back to why you're doing it. Then you can slow down and rest and recoup and, uh, do the things that are really helping you in terms of your mind, your body and your soul. So it could be just, you know, meditating, exercising, but it's all based on the science of happiness. So those five components, when you have it, I would, I would, I would ask anyone, challenged me. Like if you have these five components, I think you will definitely achieve your goals. Definitely.Mischa Z : 00:24:27 I love that. You know, what's interesting. I just thought just occurred to me. Um, I get to interview a lot of people, obviously for my podcast and I, and I, I get it interact as I'm sure you do with lots of different styles of people. And there's such a, there's such a, um, you know, you just talked about meditating and, and, and exercising and it, in a way that's like, yeah, that's natural. It's what you do. And that's just part of the routine. Right. And how then you've got sort of this, it's, it's very clear sides of that lifestyle. I don't know if lifestyle is the right word or ideal or mentality mindset call it, what you will, but you would have, then it's people are either like, oh yeah, I just do it. That's what you do. It's how you have a good life. Right. It's part of what I do. And then you've got other people that, that is such a, how can I say it? Um, there's resistance to it, right? Like, like it's, uh, if you were to talk to someone about it, it would be an, a very elusive ideal for them. Does that make sense when I say that?Francis P: 00:25:40 Yeah, I think, I think I understand it. Yeah. Uh, part of what you're saying, definitely. I mean, for me, it's just natural. It is natural. I've never realized that I'm this way, but I mean, I've been meditating for at least six years. I think if I look at my stats, you know, cause I'm using an insight timer, probably over 2003, 2,250 days, uh, that I've done at least one session of meditation. So, and, and the biggest thing that I've done also in terms of meditation was a 10 day silent meditation and in South Africa, which call it, which is called Vipassana. And I see, so for me a day without meditation is, uh, it's not the same. I see so many benefits. Cause you know, it's helps me to slow down to prime my brain to visualize when I want, and it's not always the same.Francis P: 00:26:29 So sometimes I would, I would do guided most of the time. It was not, but I'm also, uh, a student of Dr. Joe Dispenza who was phenomenal in its own way for creating the future that you really want creating it, uh, not being, uh, and also what I'm doing with Proctor Gallagher Institute, which is the same thing. It's, you're, you're seeing yourself with a goal already accomplish. So the meditation for me is that time, my time to start my day and end even before retiring and going to sleep. So this is, uh, I love, I just love this lifestyle. And I think I heard that Ray Dahlia, one of the most successful people in, in terms of wealth management is meditating at least two times a day, 30 minutes. And he's a very busy guy. So to spend an hour a day for someone that's really successful. And usually the argument is, well, I don't have the time, but the thing is, it slows down everything. And then instead of panicking or taking actions on the wrong things, you just have way more clarity. And with clarity, you're saving time. You're like, you're, you're a supernatural person. So that's, that's how I see meditation.Mischa Z : 00:27:43 I would guess that six years ago you would have not had that there would have been more resistance or I don't know if contempts the right word. Um, what's what is the word? Uh, when you, uh, you question the viability of something.Francis P: 00:28:03 Yeah. Maybe there's a skepticism skepticism.Mischa Z : 00:28:06 Thank you. So clearly something happened six ish, years ago, you start meditating, you develop the resilience element, like what's going on six years ago.Francis P: 00:28:18 Yeah. I think, I think I started to meditate a year before I created those resilience element. And the funny thing is that talking about commitment and you know, when I set a small, small little chunk at the time, for whatever reason, I felt that 10 minutes was too short and 15 too long, just like just five minutes difference. Right. So I decided, I decided to start with 13 minutes. I'm like, I'm going to set it at 13. I've been in sales all my life, I guess. Yeah. I'm going to cut in the middle it's 13 minutes and the two minutes I can believe it, but it was the time that I needed to remove the resistance and say, okay, I'm going to do that sometimes days where that's why I like incite them or it's just going so you can time it. You know, if you have three minutes, you have three minutes and that's it.Francis P: 00:29:07 But, uh, so I started to do that. And then a year after, I mean, if I go personal, I, you know, I've been engaged twice the first time it was when I was 24, I think. And three months before the wedding, my fiance just kind of talked to me in our living room. She said, I want to cancel the wedding. I thought, wow. And that was when I started the new job at Xerox, which is kind of the, the, uh, I call it the army of sales because they drill you. And if you're not good, you're out. So I had a lot of pressure to, to be good. And then I had that, that happens at the same time. And I was studying, you know, studying the specs of photocopiers, which was far from what I wanted to think about. Then I wished that it was on, on the construction site.Francis P: 00:29:54 Just no, not thinking. And, uh, so I was in my cubicle learning everything and I had to go through that. So that's just one thing that happened. And then years later, maybe 10 years I got engaged again. And, uh, and it didn't work out. And five years after that I saw I met this person and we thought that we can rekindle their relationship and it didn't work out. So maybe a month or two after I decided, you know what, I'm talking to my coach. I said, I'm, I'm, I'm good. Now I've moved on my time to, to work on my dreams and do what I'm good at. And so I, the idea at the time was I'm going to speak about communication and sales always love public speaking, done some standup, like maybe 10 times, just because I wanted to explore different ways of talking.Francis P: 00:30:43 And, and then I said, what about the big dream? What do you mean? And, and I was a bit upset that he asked me that question and I'm thinking we've been talking for a year, at least. And now you're asking me this questions. Why are you asking me this question? So, you know, cause I want, I, I thought in my mind, I'm going to work every day on, on my goal. And I'm going to create this course in 21 days. And now he's saying, what about the big dream? And I'm thinking, are you listening to me? And he said, okay. So I'm going to ask you to do something that you will not like, do you want to do it? The, what is that question? You're asking me and you're not telling me what it is you like, yeah. Do you want to do it?Francis P: 00:31:22 So maybe because of frustrations, I'm like, sure. I'll do it. What do you want me to do? I want you to do nothing for three days. I'm like, I just told you, I want to say, Hey, you just say you would, all right. So what am I supposed to do? Nothing. And so what does, what does that look like? It's like, well, no journaling, no looking at the TV, social media. And then I was asking, can I meditate then I, yes, you can. And you can see my friends. Yes. Can I go in nature? Nature. Yes. Uh, but then I said, well, what about my clients? You know, I was in real estate at the time. It's like your you're sneaky like, I just don't want you to start anything if they call you fine, but don't just, don't have your open houses. It's just don't do anything.Francis P: 00:32:06 Okay, cool. And then just before I left, I said, I want you to do, and other thing, and, um, I want you to go in five years from now in your agenda, and I want you to write this. Okay. What do you want me to write? It's like, you're going to write, this is the day that I die. So what do you want to do in between Francis what's? What's the point of living? Why are you here? What's your legacy? What do you want to become? Who do you want to with? And then, you know, I saw my big, big dream, what I wanted to do. And if there was a needle, they went bam, like in my big dream. And then you said, I don't want, I don't want the answer. Let's talk in three days. And, uh, so now I'm just left with this idea. And by the way, my coach at the time decided to do the same exercise, which was really cool. So we were actually, actually, I think we were three people not doing anything. And, uh,Mischa Z : 00:33:09 Yes. Your question quick. Yeah. Ask you a question quick. Yeah. That you just said that moment of the big dream did that happen in that moment that he was like,Francis P: 00:33:21 Oh yeah. I mean, I, I mean, I knew that. I knew that if, you know, seriously, if I, and if I even would ask you or any people listening, you know, you have five years, if that's the case, what do you want to do? So my mom, I don't want to leave this world without achieving my dreams. Like, of course, like, and then I knew that it was instant, but then he didn't want me to answer that question right away either. And so I started to ruminate, what is it exactly that I wanted to do? And so during that three days, you know, you can journal, so you get the ideas. And then I would just pray, please. I just want to, like, you know, what can I put it in my mind somewhere? And you keep it, you know? And then like recycling, it's almost like it was filtering.Francis P: 00:34:06 And then some ideas would, would leave. Some would stay, but there was a predominant thought that stayed. And I was so looking forward to jot everything down, as soon as I, this exercise is done. And, you know, I, it was a very interesting, because the first day when they gave me that exercise, I thought, you know, I'm leaving my coach's office and I'm thinking, what am I going to do now? So, uh, I remember driving and saying, oh, maybe I can go for an ice cream. Nev I never go for an ice cream, but I thought, you know, I just saw a sign. And then, um, I'm, I'm stopping. And there's a huge line for people to wait for their ice cream cones. And I'm probably the only one with a big smile on my face. And I'm like, Hey, I'm waiting. This is good. I have nothing to do, you know, great 45 minutes that I don't have to worry about.Francis P: 00:34:59 And, uh, and then I remember walking on the streets and people would look at me and say, hi, you know, they, they, I guess I had a different vibe and I remember even meeting a friend and he said, you're so calm. Like you still come like, Hey, by the way, do you have time for another hour? I'm you know, and, and I was so present. Cause I had, like, I had nothing to do. I had no thinking of things to do. My exercise was you do nothing. So then I'm present, I'm fully present with what's happening.Mischa Z : 00:35:34 What's next, what's coming my, or just open to, to let's see whatFrancis P: 00:35:39 I like. And there's no work to be done. Like it's clear you do nothing. Okay. So, and then what, like, I enjoy this moment. And so it was very, very powerful. And then, uh, three days after it, you know, in my mind, I thought, okay, so if I have only five years, which five years a great timeline, because if I say you have a week, it's very good to meet you for the podcast. Sorry, got to go. I have other things to do. Or if it's three months, six, you know, you might say I'm going to sell everything that are traveled, going to do everything that I want. But then at one point, if it's after a year, let's say you had a year of traveling. You do ever, you go everywhere, then what, then what? So then you're thinking, okay, so there's something bigger than I want to do. I want to leave something. And then to me, I thought, okay. So for any dreams that people would have, or that I want, I've seen that the successful people always had at one point or the other, a choice to make between giving up or continuing. And I thought, I want to share this mindset, this mindset of resilience to make sure that, you know, you're you keep on going, even though you have obstacles and losses in your life and setbacks, and then yeah,Mischa Z : 00:36:56 Yeah. Hold that thought. Um, let's go back to, to you. And there's two other people. So you, your coach, your coach is going to do this with you. And then there was a third.Francis P: 00:37:08 Yeah. It was another of his clients. And, uh, and then we all, it was all very powerful, very powerful for all of us.Francis P: 00:37:18 Uh, I don't know the other guy, my coach is still my coach. So we, uh, I remember that for him too. It was something that changed. Um, just you just realize, why, why are you doing what you're doing? And what, what does it matter? You know? Uh, and so for me, I decided, okay, I'm going to build this company. And then I just knew that it was resilience. So yeah, it, it was, it was clear, so much clarity, uh, which is an exercise that I had to do. And if you say you don't have time, what's the point of today? What's, what's why here and, and, and really things can, can be the light. And we would, you know, if you really had that life sentence, you would take that time. You would. So, you know,Mischa Z : 00:38:06 One thing I'm working on myself right now, um, or is so, you know, I'm building new things podcast and just did this summit. I've got other bigger, broader ideas, and it can be so easy to feel like I'm behind. I don't have time. Um, I will start comparing where I am to where you are, all these things. And I'd love what you said, because I'm trying to, like, if we can stay in the moment, which is so powerful and trust that, you know, I'm right where I'm supposed to be, and everything's happening when it's supposed to. I like this idea too, that there's the illusion that I can make it happen faster or slower. Right. So, um, what am I trying to say? It's early. I guess what I'm trying to say is, uh, so I'm, I'm, I'm literally have been writing down, you know, what, what if there was no hurry? What, what if things can be delayed? That's you said that, and I love that. It's like, Hey, wait, I can feel like there's this urgency that these things have to be done. And if they don't, it's the be all end all and whatever my vision is will collapse, but that's an illusion. And, and so, yeah, that's, that's what, maybe speak to that a little bit more of that.Francis P: 00:39:24 Yeah. There's definitely some illusions. And I think the illusions are coming from what the society is saying to our education, our parents, uh, I mean, at the end of the day, we have 95% of everything that we're doing that's unconscious or is, is it's just habit. Sure. It's habit thinking. And so we're being driven by our subconscious most 95% of the time. The beautiful thing is that we do have a conscious mind that is able to reject or accept any ideas. Uh, and then, you know, when we have a new idea that comes in and it goes into the subconscious, and then there's some conscious kid, and usually the subconscious will always accept, but they create some sort of a conflict. So because it's, it's, it's how you've been living for a long time. So, uh, the way to change things and change the illusion is to impress a new idea with repetition.Francis P: 00:40:16 That's, that's why, you know, the program that I'm in the Proctor Gallagher Institute is, is so, so amazing. And that's, and that's based on thinking we're rich people that had a lot of success. And so it's like meditation. It's like everything, you know, I, I couldn't even imagine that, that I didn't think that repetition was so important because, you know, we go to the gym, we know that you're not going to change your muscles in one day, but we read a book once and that's it. And then we end and it's because we go to school, we get information and then we're being tested once on it. And then we move on and we're being rewarded for gaining more information, but we're not being rewarded for the application of that information. So, so to change your subconscious mind and to change the illusions, to impress new ideas.Francis P: 00:41:10 And, uh, and then that's, that's why I'm fascinating about what I'm doing and helping other people to do that. And really we can do anything. And, and, and, you know, the fact that we think that there's not enough time or that, you know, it's, it's pretty amazing. When you ask questions, what is your concept of time? What is your concept of money? Do you feel that you have enough money making money as these, you know, in society? It's no, you got to work hard. You're going to hustle. You're going to do this. And the more and more I'm realizing with what I'm doing is it's all about the vibration. It's all about the being it's, it's, uh, you're not gonna, and it's who you are that creates everything. It's the be, do have a equation versus there have. And what I mean by that is when I was young, I always felt that I would be someone once I have XYZ, once I do this, and then I'm going to become a happy, I'm going to be happy once I have the house, once I have the dog that the marriage and everything, but it's the other way around, you're being the way you're you are, is creating the type of actions that are going to lead to what you have later on.Francis P: 00:42:21 It's not the other way around. So otherwise, if you're, if you're on the other side of the equation, then it's a chase. It's a, and then you go to the, the goalpost and then the whole journey is, is being miserable. I was one of them. You know, I, I was always, I stayed four years in a company for bonus and I was miserable and it caused me, I'm pretty sure my first relationship, the marriage, because, you know, my flame was diminishing and diminishing, diminishing instead of being happy in the journey. And we don't know when that life is going to end. So that's why I was so passionate about, you know, make, make, make it living, not being scared of dying, being scared of not living while you're here. And I think it's really, really important. That's why, and I have a friend that passed away two weeks ago, actually on my birthday, and I'm going to try not to be emotional, but it was, uh, you know, two weeks before that, uh, we had a conversation and I know that it was the last one because, you know, he had cancer for two years and, uh, and I wanted him to maybe participate in two or what we call a remote healing.Francis P: 00:43:36 So it's sending energy from different people to him. And he said, I'm good. I don't need this. I'm like, so what's going on? It's like, well, you know what? I think I'm, I think I'm done. I think I, I'm just sick of, of being sick. And, uh, I've had a good life, you know, I've, there's of course there's things that I wish I had, like a family and kids, but, you know, for the most part, I'm pretty happy at what I, what I, what I've done. And so imagine having a conversation with your best friend and you just, you know, it's the last one. So every second counts. Right? So you're, and then, um, I, it was a beautiful conversation, human conversation where I said, so what do you, uh, what do you recommend? Like if you had to send a message to the whole world, what would it be for you?Francis P: 00:44:26 And he said, well, just be yourself. Just be yourself. You're authentic self. He Said, don't let anyone sway you or anything. So where you from your past. And, uh, and for him that he see, you told me the story, his name is Neil Anderson. And he told me to study when he was young. And he used to go back at, at, at home. Cause his mom was asking him to always go back at home before he would do anything else playing or anything. And he said, at times when it was raining, I was watching it a TV show. And I think he was in Scotland at the time. And the TV show was that there was a psychologist that was bringing some actors and I guess talking about some different concept. And he was fascinated by it. He was fascinated, he told his dad, that's what I want to be.Francis P: 00:45:11 I want to be a psychologist. And his dad was more of an engineer type. And he said, no, you know, you're either an engineer or a doctor or you're you go in business. And so he ended up going into business and doing a lot of different things. It was successful. And then at one point I decided to be a psychologist and he did, and it was a really, really good one. And so he followed his heart and then later his, that was brought up. But so that's, I think that's why you say, you know, don't let anyone sway you from your path. And the path is very unique to everyone. And then he also said, I would wake up every day and I asked myself, how can I have a life of abundance and vitality? And then I said, uh, how do you define abundance?Francis P: 00:45:52 He said, well, that's, that's the beauty of life. You're the one that created this one definition. So it was, so to me, I say that because after that, they kind of gave me a kick in my butt to a refocus on my project of documentary, on resilience element and interviewing the people because life is so precious and I want to live my life to the max and not let my fear and not let the society, the people, anything sway me from my path. And I think you really know what your path is when you're asking yourself like this kind of fake life sentence of five years, and it could be less, it could be more. And so really why are we here? Is that, is that to live in fear most of our time or more most of our life, or really go for it and, and do anything that we can to have a legacy, to have an impact, to help others and, and make, make something good out of our life. And that's why now I'm, that's, that's my driver. Driver to honor what my friend was saying and just help people to live their best life with their dreams. And if there's any obstacles, they're going to know what the resilience element is. And they're going to know the stories of people that against all of the, uh, they made it happen. And then now there's no excuses. You can use all the science, you can use the stories and they can do anything. So that's, that's why I'm doing what I'm doing.Mischa Z : 00:47:22 Do you remember the point when Neil, um, I guess left his business life to start his psychology?Francis P: 00:47:30 That Um, I, I don't remember. I know that you just, uh, there's a moment where I wish I knew the answer, but he just decided to go forward. Cause I think at one point you realize why, why am I doing what I'm doing? And so maybe for some, you know, if they can ask themselves, is this really what I want? I buy Bower of that from somebody else? Is it my thing? Or is it somebody else? My parents, the society, whatever, because I believe that, you know, even my godfather told me when I was 16 and it was my birthday and he gave me a birthday card and he said, Francis, you know, now you're 16. That's awesome. And you're gonna make decisions for, for, for your career. Please don't make a decision for the paycheck. Do what makes your heart come alive. Otherwise you'll be poor all your life. And I've been following the advice.Francis P: 00:48:26 I, first time I had a job offer to job offer. One was 55,000, you know, when years ago, 20 more, and then the other 1 35, it was just 20,000 difference. But, you know, I felt 30, 40% more and international business or international company, a multinational, a great salary path. I don't know, but it was selling electronic parts. I didn't care about electronic parts, but Hey, you know, there's all that path versus another one, which was a smaller company traveling around the world for, I think it was dentistry, but you know, I was passionate about traveling and the cultures and everything, but the salary was not good. And so imagine if you take that same person, you have the one that's on the trajectory of fully living your passion fully being alive every day, not being in jail, not dying every day. And the other one that's alive, does what he loved.Francis P: 00:49:25 And then you become an expert. You would just use your, your you're gonna love what you do that, you know, your people are gravitating around you because you're the, your, your enjoy, your vibration is high. And 10 years later, I mean, money was not in be, even be part of the equation. First of all, you're happy every day. And I would probably guess that actually your fortune, whatever, how you call your fortune is, is way better. Like in terms of your health, your relationship, uh, maybe salary, maybe money, but, you know, it's, and it doesn't even matter. So I discovered that card 20 years after and, uh, wow. Okay. And that, around that time I decided to go for, and with the exercise and my coach and everything I decided to go for my dreams.Mischa Z : 00:50:13 Do you think, um, it sounds to me like, uh, I'm my condolences for your, for your dear friend, Neil. Um, what a, what a heavy moment. And I mean, and how powerful that you could be there and, and show up for those conversations too. I think that that's, uh, that's, um, it's a gift, you know? And so thank you for sharing that. Um, that's, uh, it's good. It's good. I mean, those tragic circumstances that the beauty comes out of, right?Francis P: 00:50:50 Yeah. And you know, the funny thing is that he actually did die on my birthday, so I don't think it's a coincidence. So I see it as a rebirth day now every year. And, uh, and he took the time to even send like a message on Facebook, I guess, maybe a couple of hours. Cause I learned about it the day after. So I knew that it would come, I didn't know when, but yeah. What a beautiful gift you gave us or he gave me to, uh, and my friends, cause I thought about it, but you know, he's yeah, that was very instrumental.Mischa Z : 00:51:24 Yeah. Sounds like maybe up until that moment, you were sort of, uh, lost sight of your vision for a minute. Okay.Francis P: 00:51:32 I mean, I was, I was recommending it, but I think it's just like, it's almost like the mail that just closed, you know, it's it's, it was, it was up in the air, but now, you know, it's, you know, I know. And uh, and that's, that's, that's his biggest gift, you know?Mischa Z : 00:51:54 Yeah. So at your website, um, FrancisPiche.com and that's F R a N C I S P I C H e.com. That'll be in the show notes. Anybody can click, um, check it out. You have some great, a couple of cool interviews. There's one interview with uh Baptist de Pape. Yeah. Yeah. How awesome is that? Um, but I'm just looking at your, um, do you have extensive training and, and, and, uh, coaching and personal development and all this stuff, and it sounds like currently the Proctor Gallagher Institute, is that Bob Proctor or is itFrancis P: 00:52:37 Yeah, Bob Proctor is behind with, uh, Sandy Gallagher's. So it's Sandy Gallagher was an attorney, a merger acquisition attorney, and she just wanted to expand, uh, what Bob was teaching. And so right now, thanks to her and the merge of this organization, they're in more than 90 countries. And so, uh, it's a ripple effect of, and I, I, to be honest, the only thing that I knew about Bob to me and my mind was the movie that the secret. And I felt that I wasn't sure if I really liked, uh, Bob, I knew I had a lot of respect, but I, but now when I, when I discovered what he's talking about and merging what I've learned from Dr. Joe Dispenza and, and really talk, it's almost like a bridge of what I would call the 3d society, you know, the hustling and everything, and a five D, which is, you know, you, you tap into this field of consciousness and now magic starts to happen.Francis P: 00:53:30 And now it's quantum leaps. It's not a, you got to work hard for it. That's the merge that he has. So he is, so it felt that it was me, was me totally. And, and all the language that he's using in terms of the, is really a mindset program, business wealthy, or however you want to call it, but it was, it was me. And so I felt equipped to talk about it, coach it right away. And, uh, and I really underestimated how powerful it is until I started to do the program. I'm the product of the product, you know, and consulting and I apply and that's, and to me, I think I see him as a, as almost a, a grandpa, you know, the grandpa had a lot of success, the followed a mentor called Earl Nightingale, who had a lot of success who was talking about the thinking, thinking, thinking, thinking, grow rich book.Francis P: 00:54:18 And so, you know, of course these guys, there's a reason why they were successful. And so what Earl Nightingale told Bob was do what I say until we can prove me wrong. And, and then to me, it was okay. So if Bob did what he said, and then I'm going to do what Bob is asking me to do. And, uh, and that don't question it and it works. It's, that's why, you know, in terms of goals there, we're not even asking people to think about, Hey, how can you improve by 20% or 15%? They're saying, you know, you take your monthly, your annual income and converting into annual monthly income. So it's 12 times more. And the funny thing is that once you started think that way, and you raise your vibration to that level, your ideas are completely different. If I ask you, like, how can you improve your business by 10% or how can you 10 X your business, the ideas are not the same.Francis P: 00:55:16 And you know, everything that comes now is bigger ideas, bigger ways to accomplish it. And so now the sudden it's possible. It's completely possible. And, and, and the only reason why it's not possible is because of what we call the paradigm. And the paradigm is all your subconscious that you've been thinking about for a while. And so from people that they would probably say, it's impossible, 10, 10, X, it's impossible, but there's a million ways to create abundance. You know, people, even in the ones that have a salary, why, because, you know, you can start to do what you love and, uh, and do offer a service and you'd better be rewarded for it. You can establish a store, you can, there's so many ways to do it. Right. But yeah,Mischa Z : 00:56:01 Yeah, I was gonna say it, uh, it, um, those ways are expanding exponentially just with technology and all this stuff. And, and there's, there's a thirst for, for that information to, or for, yeah. Um, I, I, um, you did some landmark stuff too. I see. You've done a bunch of stuff. Some Tony Robbins, uh, uh, I'm just, you know, uh, looking on your, on your sort of your history of, of coaching and your passion for it, and you love it clearly. And it's, and it, it's fun. It's fun to talk to you because you know, you, you definitely have a, a presence and, and, and that calmness that you're talking about and that being in the moment is, is very evident. And it'll be fun to see for people if it, if it transfers through, through the podcast. Right. Um, so I just want to acknowledge that.Mischa Z : 00:57:03 So thank you for that, but I have, I, I, what I'm thinking is maybe you could speak to this quick. So somebody is in that spot where, where maybe there's a breakup in their life, right. That, that the woman of their dreams evaporated, or the man did, or, you know, you've been through a couple of heavy breakups along the way. Um, or perhaps there's that burnout moment, um, that burnout moment at work or career, or what have you. Um, and it's like, we know things have got to change for some of us, right? Some people not, but some of us it's like, wait, things have to go a different way. And thinking of your resilience element in your, you know, your clarity, conviction, uh, certainty, commitment, and courage, if someone's on the very front end of that. Right. So someone's like at the breaking point and they're like aware and ready to like, maybe plow forward in a new direction or take a leap or something like that. Like what, give me some like, tangible, workable tools, like a few things you're like, all right, if someone's in that spot and they know they are ready to change, or things have got to give, like give me something that somebody, some of the very front of end of that can doFrancis P: 00:58:30 Well. I think I'm going to give, um, I love to give a lot. I mean, I'm going to give a, what I always feel is a foundation of everything for before we even start to talk about the five components and those are very, and that's that's, if you, if people would be my clients, they'd be surprised how often we would actually go back to that basic and that foundation. And so there's a couple things that I think are very important. One, uh, is, is to say there's a book called "The Way Of Mastery". And, uh, one of the things that they mentioned is that, and I think landmark would probably touch on that as well, is that all events are neutral. Okay. Let that sink for a second. So what if I asked you, what do you think that means?Mischa Z : 00:59:15 Yeah, to me, that's like, that's, that's this idea that the breakup was bad, but perhaps it's neutral, neither good nor bad. It just is.Francis P: 00:59:26 Everything. Yeah. Everything is, everything is just neutral. And so, because, I mean, maybe people are not going to see it, but it can imagine in their mind. So I have a cup, a cup that has my logo on it, and then you see, uh, something black and white. And then on the other side, that same cup there's, it's only black. So if I, if I would ask someone like, so what do you see? Like, what colors do you see? And it's a while I see white, then the black, what are you talking about? This is not white and black. This is, this is black. And you're like, what are you talking about? And then, and then you just realize that, you know, like turning on the other side and then, oh, it's black, you know, but it's just because it's a different angle. It's a different perception.Francis P: 01:00:07 Yeah. So, so what's in the way of something that's like, the cup is the cup. The cup is just the cup. Like an accident is an accident. What breakup is a breakup, everything is just is, but then you have, first of all, the first filter is perception. So all, if I look at, at a different angle, then I would discover that, oh, you're right. Like it's actually white and black, but then on top of it, there's also meaning. And so if I show you, if someone says, do you know that I don't like to mix white and black together? Or what are you talking? You're making me mad right now. You know, I hate that. You know, what are you talking about? This is only black. No, it's white and black. And so now this sudden, like the meaning on top of it is huge.Francis P: 01:00:50 So, you know, and then, so it's imagine your mom is saying Mischa you're, you're a piece of nothing. How would you feel? And then there's a two year old that says exactly the same thing. You are just a piece of, you would probably laugh. It's exactly the same, but you know, all of a sudden the meaning, because it's your mom, then now it's big thing though. Like now it hurts your, your, your heart, but essentially it's all the same. It's just all events are neutral. So the beauty of that is that now that we know it, we can choose, we can choose. This is very important. What I'm saying, choosing the perception, choosing the meaning. And then it's a different story. And if so, for someone that had a bleed or a breakup, and I think what's also important what I've learned with the Vipassana meditation and observing the thoughts and, and knowing that everything is in permanent is to go through the pain, really go through it, feel it, you know, I remember when another relationship where I wasn't sure if the person was cheating on me or not.Francis P: 01:02:00 And I remember having this meditation and I decided to go through it, like, let's say, okay, let's, let's go through the graphic of her cheating on let's, let's go like, instead of resisting, because the resistance is just creating this pain even longer. So now I decide, okay, I'm going to go through it because I had this experience in my body of having the pain during the meditation. And I went through it and I lived, and I felt a sensation, felt the sensation fully. And it's fascinating, whoa, this is intense. Wow. And the, and then eventually it evaporated. Yeah. So it was, it was an amazing learning experience. So I decided to go through this visual. Okay. Let's say she's cheating on me and everything. But then I realized, is this really above me? Is she really considering mean the whole, if like, if that would happen, would she even say I'm going to do that against Francis.Francis P: 01:02:52 I'm just totally going to him off. And, but it has nothing to do with my value. It has nothing that would be her decision to do something because of whatever the perception in the meeting sheet she had. Yeah. It had no, but so then when I discovered that I felt, well, it doesn't even matter. What I know is that if she doesn't, then it would be over because that's not my value, but it has nothing to do on my value, my worth. So, so, so now that I know it, I just, and then as soon as this meditation was over, I remember that the little inner voice was you got it, you got it. It doesn't matter. It's. And then five minutes after she called and she broke up. So, so I had a beautiful meditation right on time. It's almost like, yeah, you got it.Francis P: 01:03:45 Exercise. That's done on. And she did, in fact, uh, was with someone that I thought that maybe there was something, but, and you know what? It didn't matter because I felt well, of course, it's not, I'm happy for her. I'm really happy because this is a match for her, not a match for me. So the first, that's just the first foundation of saying, you know, all events are neutral, uh, and choosing. So, you know, it's when people say it's in a language, your language is a dead giveaway of your belief. So if you say, Hey, Mischa, you want to go to my party? You're like, uh, I might, I might be like. "I might" what is that? So it's not commitment. And a lot of people are keeping their option, be all open, but you're not committing to anything. So it's a, an old people would say, I have to do something.Francis P: 01:04:33 I got to do something. It's basically being a victim of not taking ownership of, of what you really want. It's not true that you have to do something because it's actually a choice. You know, I have to work. No, you don't, you don't, if you don't want to work, you don't while there's a consequence to it, but you choose. Yeah. It's better to say I choose something versus I have to, uh, Sufism. Now, this thing is bigger than you. So that's another distinction. So when I hear my clients, I say, Hey, what I choose? Yeah. And choose is now, this is beautiful because you feel empowered right away. You're choosing something. Nobody's telling you what to do. You're choosing, you're choosing your perception. You're the meaning. You're choosing all the time. And if you don't choose, if you don't do anything, you choose not to do anything. And, uh, and then, uh, another last aspect is, and Einstein said, the most important question that people can ask themselves is, do I believe that God or the universe is benevolent?Francis P: 01:05:39 So imagine how you live your life. When you think that life is bad, life can always have catastrophes and setbacks. And it's not. It's a, it's a bad world versus I believe that everything is benevolent. So that means that. Now, when I have a challenge, I know that this is for my highest good, it's a very different way to live life. And it's in some ways. And that happened to me a couple of times, is that when something happens out of nowhere, I'm almost excited. Cause I'm thinking, well, the universe, God is really helping me is saying, Hey, sorry, you're going to, you're going to fall right now. You're really going in a wrong direction. I got to help you. And that's what happened to me. Like, I mean, three months before the wedding, cause I was on the verge of like really pleasing, uh, not being happy and deciding that this is how I would live my life.Francis P: 01:06:33 And I would have been miserable, probably fig

I've got to write a bio for a summit that I've been asked to speak on. I write one up and don't ask for any feedback or comments because I don't want it to turn into a 6 month process :). I just let it fly. The Google also told me how to write a 3 sentence bio.Episode notes:Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitI seem to be back on track with my consistent episode recordings while I walk and at home. The stream of consciousness channel seems to be open and vibrant.Today I want to talk about one thing or perhaps two.one a. I once said, I will probably be on my death bed wondering what I'm supposed to do with my life. A young 53 as I record this. There is no doubt if I get to have gradual death. Versus, as Barbara Karnes says, a sudden death.It's what I'm doin right now. What am I supposed to be doing with my life? It's what I'm doing right now.What am I going to do with my life. Turns out what I'm doing right now. Why is it supposed to be any different?I've been asked to speak on another summit and I'm supposed to have a bio. This is what I came up with after a few days of avoiding…This is what I came up with.Mischa Zvegintzov, aka Mischa Z, is director of Be Love Media where he uses his irreverent personality and real life experience to create content focused on personal growth, pivoting forward, and serving the world through change. Never scared to ask the hard questions, Mischa helps growth minded High Performers move beyond the constant worries of money and the need for relationships so that they can thrive in the 2nd half of life.Coach Vince says pick a style for your bio. Either transparent or formal. But not blended.I googled how to write a bio… And came up with “how to write a 3 sentence bio”What do you do?How can you help?Your call to action.I did not forward it to anybody for review or commentary because I do not want to spend 6 months doing this. Just let it rip, let it fly.Often times high performers do not want to admit they are not performing or that they are worried. I am not here to convince anybody that they are anywhere other than where they are.The bio is just for one summit. The great news is it will be out there forever, until I die. Hey man, you've just got to let it fly! Let it go. Embrace the messy action. So there's my ode to messy action. So what I'm supposed to be doing with my life… It's what I'm doing right now. If I'm going to be continuing down this path, one day at a time. For the foreseeable future. How do I not have it be stressful. Start podcasting!

I go through a series of questions around “The world is as I choose to see it”. And we can chose to see the world as “Good, beautiful, magical, loving.” How do you see it? Are you willing to see it differently? Do you need help seeing it differently? Do you want to see it differently.Episode notes:Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitYou know how I fond I am of “A Course In Miracles” (ACIM). I read it everyday come hell or high-water. I am currently in the text portion of ACIM. I started with the workbook for students. I was reading it this morning and I am in Chp 29, section 6, The Forgiveness and the end of time.It is the idea that when you can find forgiveness for everybody and everything, including yourself, time slips away. On the surface it can seem flippant. Paragraph 1 sentence 1. “How willing are you to forgive your brother?” And that is a great question to ask yourself. And I encourage everybody to do that.When we say are brother that can be literally. How willing am I to forgive my siblings? I am extremely willing to forgive my literal brother. Some people are not, there is tension in their family. And we can stretch that out to friends. And then of course it's our enemies. And then of course it's anybody.How willing am I to forgive somebody. I'm very willing. I'm working on it. It's been very powerful for me the more willing I am to forgive people. People, places, and things.Paragraph 1 sentence 5. This is the sacrifice salvation asks and gladly offers peace. You forgive your brothers you will find peace. Super powerful, super simple, I find it to be true. It is so powerful when you hear people get on the news after an extreme criminal act has happened to them or their families and they offer forgiveness to the accused or perpetrator. We can wonder of course how can they do that. But it provides ultimate freedom. Can I offer forgiveness to the person who cuts me off. To the, the simple things. I wrote down some thoughts.The world is as I choose to see it. It is very clear that that is the case to me right now. How do I choose to see it? How do I choose to see the world? Loving, beautiful, abundant, infinite? Shiny, radiant, magical, awesome. Full of love? All these things.Do I need help seeing it differently? If I can't see it like that, do I need help seeing it differently? Learning how to see it. It's such a great question. If we could see the world like that why wouldn't we? Why wouldn't you? Why wouldn't I?Or we can see it as dark, evil, death. Everything comes to an end. There's evil. There's corruption. There's BAD people. What if we could see it the other way? Ignorance is bliss perhaps? Do I need help seeing it differently? More magical, loving, creation. Do I need help learning how?Do I want to see it differently? Some people don't want to see it differently. You could offer them a beautiful vision of forgiveness, love, freedom, hope, creation, life, expanding creation. People are going to go “No! I do not want to see it like that.” “I don't!”I had this thought that we could help people see it differently. Not that they should. No right or wrong. Let's strip away all judgment. It takes all sides of the coin and some people don't want to see it differently. I do! I have those moments where that alludes me.None the less. How do I choose seeing it? Do I need help seeing it differently. Some days yes. Do I need help learning how, some days yes. And I am open to that help I am willing to see it differently. Ignorance may be bliss.Go get a copy of ACIM at www.belove.media/resources. And join along!Start podcasting!

In today's episode we are joined by none other than David Icke. Join us as David helps us to better understand the collective mass trauma that we have all been exposed to, the importance of consciousness in the healing process and how love will always do what it knows to be right. We also surprise David with a special guest and dear friend of his, Cathy O'Brien who joins us for the last 45 minutes of the interview. Highlights Take a deeper dive into mass mind control that society has been under for decades. Discover how fear is their weapon of choice. Learn the relationship between trauma and perception. Gain insight into how your individual state of consciousness impacts everything. Discover the necessity of holding onto your power, what this means, and how to live your life from this place. Understand the difference in living our lives from a place of love versus a place of fear. Discover how "spirituality" can often be used for escapism. Insights around what love actually means, how it has been distorted and the power behind acting from a place or real love. The necessity of celebrating our own unique self without apology and without permission from others. The power of self-respect and saying "NO!” Knowledge is NOT power. The USE of knowledge is power.
Yara Golden's has a course called Subscriber Reviver. On this training she says part of being authentic is talking about where you have gotten help. Where it has been a team effort. As a my friend Earston is telling me how much he liked the summit interviews it strikes me how much my coach helped. And I give some love to the rest of the coaches who pushed me forward. Episode notes:Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitWhere I needed help, how I got help, and how it helped with the success of the summit.The summit success that I had is absolutely attributable to a team effort well over and about just me.The next round of training that I am going through is to help with telling an authentic story to your audience. And I now have an audience. In the 2CCX coaching group that I'm in we have access to the “Subscriber Reviver” course via Yara Golden. Her method is story selling. One of the key points she brought up; part of being authentic is saying where you have gotten help or people have helped you. Where was it a team effort? Make sure you say where you have stumbled, where you have had help, where the team effort was part of your success.As I was listening to Yara say that in her course, I was thinking maybe I could address that a little bit more.A buddy had checked out the Summit while he was on vacation. And he spontaneously said how much he liked the summit. How powerful the speakers were, they were legitimate. They weren't hacks, how much value they brought. He was talking about home much he really really liked it.He continued with how well I did as an interviewer, anytime he wanted to ask a question of the speaker I seemed to know and would ask that question. He was very excited and “was not blowing smoke”…Of course take the good with the bad :). As he continued to go on about certain things I that I did during the interview. It was very clear to me that Vince, my coach, gave me those tips. Vince gave me those tips right before I started doing the interviews. That morning or the day before Vince said, drill down on those steps, ask about them, make it real… “Ok I will try”. Vince helped so much with copy.Vince, NJ, Kyle, Steve, all the coaches, Andrea Peer - my tech person, helped me so much!The point is Earston, my buddy, was shining a light on how much vince helped me. I'm giving homage to Vince!There you go, me being vulnerable and talking about the team effort!Start podcasting!

Here are the top 3 prayers that I am using right now. The first one is for when I'm wondering what the hell am I doing with this life. The second one is for when I'm feeling competitive and judge'e. The third one is for whenever I think I know what is best for someone else and I'm conflicted about what to do. Or I want to tell someone what to do.Episode notes:Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitThe top 3 prayers that I am using right now. And that can change. Prayers can be more or less potent. They can effect you at different times in different ways. Perhaps the come top of mind due to circumstances. Or we learn new ones along the way.I'm trying to record everyday. If I record earlier in the morning it's better. What ever better means. Usually I've meditated. Some ACIM. ect. Mind is crackling. Vs recording at end of the night when I'm burnt out. I came across this idea; If you are running out of things to say on your podcast, blog, etc. It is because you are not being your authentic self. And I loved that thought!Prayer #1. This one came to me via “A Return To Love” by Marianne Williamson. There's lot's of good prayers in there and I've dog eared a lot of them. The poignant one from there is: “God, where would you have me go? What would you have me do? What would you have me say and to whom?” Providing me solace coming out of the summit.Prayer #2. For when I get competitive or judge'e. That competitive is poison for me. I saw someone who had a summit very much like mine. That started after mine. And I was not hoping for the best for them. And I caught myself. I don't want to feel this way. “God, give everything I want for my self to __________. Give them their health, their happiness, and their prosperity.” And give that stuff to them before you give it to me. Prayer #3. “God how would me support your path for ___________? Setting aside my own selfish wants and desires.” Anybody who I think I know what is best for them I need to say this prayer. For anyone who we think they need to do things differently. Or if I'm conflicted on what I should do in many circumstances. And then breath, and then listen, and then take action when the signs comes. My own selfish wants and desires skew everything. I want me kids to make me look good. I don't want to loose something to somebody. Ex's. I get along great with my X but I say that prayer a lot if necessary. My ego, I don't want to loose something. Or I'm afraid I won't get something. Or how am I gonna look. How is this person gonna make me look. I don't want to feel stressed. I don't want to fell loss. I don't want to feel sad. I don't want to feel this. Or I want to feel xxxx. I want! I want! I want! Or, I don't want! I don't want! I don't want! And that's all my selfish and egocentric wants and desires. It skews stuff. So I can be willing to step aside from that and how powerful that is.God where would you have me go, what would you have me do, what would you have me say and to whom? If I feel like what the hell am I doing is this life that's a good one.“God, give everything I want for my self to __said person__. Give them their health, their happiness, and their prosperity.” When I feel resentful judge or what have you.“God how would me support your path for ___________? Setting aside my own selfish wants and desires.” So I can take heart centered action. When I take those actions I am free of the results.Start podcasting!

Now that the summit is done I've been tasked to work on 3 things by my coach. And to be honest it is extremely overwhelming. 1) Take control of my calendar and schedule my next campaigns. 2) Refine my avatar and who I want to help. 3) Start creating frameworks and deliverables that I can take to my avatar. Episode notes:Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitThe purpose of this episode is to talk about next steps. The continuation of the summit. I got done with the summit and there is all this space. Holding space for people. Creating space for next. Next steps now that “space” is there. Next steps, holding space. There is now new space. Literally, energetically, there's new space. Perhaps 10 years ago if I'd have heard the term “new space” or “holding space”, I'd have been like “yeah right!”.My coach vince… You now get to solidify, or put words on paper. Who are you looking to help or guide? Who do I want to help? Get that codified, solidified on paper. Now that I've asked to be on somebody else's summit I need a concise vision of who I am looking to serve.“What an order! I can't go through with it!”It's time to solidify who I want to help and refine my avatar. Who I want to help.Now it is time for me to start calendaring my next campaign. Get a wall calendar so I can put campaigns on there. It is time to take accountability and ownership of that. Take control of my schedule moving forward.Come up with frame works. Here are actionable steps you can take mr avatar. I need to do what? Are you kidding my? Go find frameworks that I like and that I've used myself, and add my own content to it. Find the 70 to 80% that I like and add my own 20%. And that is how we progress forward. One hiccup that I have to that is I always want to have the brightest idea and the brand new. How cool is it that that is not required?Take control of my calendarRefine my avatar.

After the summit is finally done I have a day to decompress and then the over whelm of next steps hit me. Now it's the fight to get back into the moment so I can keep the momentum going. Episode notes:Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitThe aftermath of the summit and OMG what's next. That is what I am going to make an attempt to talk about today.The live portion of the summit finished Friday and it's Monday as I record this. Worked a bunch Saturday tying up loose ends and took Sunday off for self care. Take a day off, it was hard. Take a day off. The summit took up so energy and so now there is a little bit of a hole… All of a sudden it's done. So there was a little emptiness.So how do I spiritually fill that hole? I had to do some spot check meditating through out the day for sure to get back centered. The aftermath. It's like this big bomb wend off! The summit bomb. Boom! All of a sudden there is all these next steps. I'm definitely in a state of overwhelm projecting forward…OMG the aftermath what's next. Complete overwhelm. There is getting email seqeneces to all the people who joined the summit. You've got to connect with them all this work I put in. I have no idea what I'm gonna say what I'm gonna do.There's perhaps creating products for the bigger vision. Ask campaigns. It's like putting the engine in a car. Hand me the instruction book and if I stay in the moment and do the next indicated step you look up and the engine is in. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. I'm trying to get back into the moment and breath. What's the next indicated step. We are trying to get our message out. I want answers. I want to know what next year looks like. I want to know what one year down the line looks like. I want to know that my time invested is going to be worth while in the way that I want it to be. I want to know the shiny object that I'm hoping for is waiting for me. All this egoic stuff. All these fears. All the financial insecurity that was hiding in the summit is flashing back at me.So I get to work to get back in the moment with all the tips tricks and tools. So many of which were talked about on the summit.So yeah, the after math of the summit. Breath, take it easy. Next indicated step. I don't need to be farther along then I am. That's one big thing that's gripping me from moment to moment. OMG I'm behind in the process. Things need to be bigger than they are. I need to be farther along. I need to know answers to many things that I don't know answers to. So come back to the moment, do the next indicated step. Send the thank you's to the speakers. Do the debrief with the who.Watch the next instructional video. How to get in front of an audience of 100,000 people and how to do that every day.I as I was leaving the house to go on a walk, the intuition was grab the microphone and record, even though it might not be shiny, well thought out, etc. I get to keep producing episodes one day at a time… etc… etc… and hopefully be of service :).

Amazon best selling author Damien Culhane and I cover all the basses. Male eating disorders, Brexit, and intuition. Becoming awake/waking up, co-creating with the universe and more :). His greatest bitch slap moment is in 2005 when his son was diagnosed with MS (Muscular Dystrophy). It is the catalyst for massive change. There are so many powerful nuggets in our conversation you should give a listen!Episode notes:Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitFind Damion Culhane and his best selling books here:Ignite Your Life for Conscious Leaders: Elevating and Transforming the Way We Lead Ourselves and Others in a New and Conscious Way https://smile.amazon.com/dp/1792306687/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_C8QKE7T350Q3M890N1A1Ignite Your Life for Men: Thirty-five outstanding stories by men who are supporting other men to become the powerfully- enlightened, courageously-awakened, conscious role models they were born to be https://www.amazon.com/dp/1792306679/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_TBHPA0F3TYMFP3CA9Q16Ignite Your Adventurous Spirit: Inspiring travel stories by individuals whose lives have been deeply transformed https://www.amazon.com/dp/B083LGWY6K/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_GCD776WNPQ9M8TM8MT8Dwww.Damianculhane.co.ukHis podcast the Self Sabotage show. https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/the-self-sabotage-show-with-damian-culhane/id1538003861Regarding bitch slaps from the universe… And noticing things that he hadn't noticed before. The first one when he was completely asleep to all of this, when he was a kid, something wasn't right and something was up at a family gathering. He was 7 years old and aware that his father wasn't there. His parents were divorced and he didn't have the maturity to talk about it.When that event happened and it went by unnoticed. It created a tension, a universal tension and I was able to mask that by over eating… His first example of when he was over eating and binge eating even at that young age. As an ego centric 7 year old.I ignored that one and it caused me a significant amount of emotional suffering and psychological harm that perhaps if I'd have paid attention may never had existed.So he his binge eating disorder starts at that age. An air of secrecy and a whole load of stuff mixed up in that.He did not get to the point of bulimia or anorexia which seem to be a whole another level. The binge eating was absolutely like an addiction for him. It turns into other addictions. Damian and I meet through JB Owen. Damien meets her at a 2019 event “Mind Valley University” in Pula Croatia. Probably about 1000 people there. Best selling authors… (Btw Damien lives in Italy).We get on Brexit. Which is perhaps a conspiracy he says. His decision to move to Italy was based on his ability to be able to continue to move about freely through Europe post Brexit.The way that Brexit was posed by both sides… There was a lot of mis information. “Take back control” was some of the propaganda he believes. He likes the melting pot of Great Britton. The richness of it. Brexit is taking that away. It was pitched as a utopia and is more of the government ceasing control of their agenda and the people. It's about control of peoples behavior. What they can and can't do. Re lock down. How to wash your hands for example. So reliant on the government telling us what to do. So many businesses in the UK hang on every word of the prime minister and that is not a great place to be. The main stream media. Gov policy. etc. That's not always the best thing for the people but perhaps just the best for a few. Not necessarily the best thing for the nation.People will agree and disagree and that's ok.Money has been given to VIP organizations and companies aligned with the ruling party. Defective equipment, little oversight, little audit. Brexit has affected food distribution to the negative into Great Britton. Tapping into that higher source or intuition. AKA “awake”, my own impact on the world. As soon as you are awake, and out of the matrix… You can stand back and see what's going on… Maybe there's something more to life than what is being offered by the government and and the mainstream media.The people who have the biggest influence in the media, politics, and in finances are almost becoming drunk on their own power. They are blasé about it, to the point where they are doing it anyway. People are waking up and saying “wait a minute”. Now he's an international bestseller thanks to his working with JB Owen and contributing to her books.Some of the organizations I work with are involved in that market place. I've got to the point now where if they don'l like my view point… That's ok. Two or three years ago I wouldn't have been like that. I would have been much more worried about what people think.What became obvious to me was my vision. Two or three years ago… The purpose for my suffering and why it happens. I want to help others heal from their suffering. The suffering was there for a reason. I had to experience it, I had to get through it, I had to work out how to overcome it. And now my role in life, my vision, is to help others heal their suffering. I do that through helping them understand where they sabotage their life, where self sabotage shows up in their life, why that exists, what they can do about it, how they can overcome it, and not be defined by their past, and create a future they love.Men, generally are not aware of their emotions or how they can deal with it or the impact it has had on them. Women are much more tuned into somethings not right and I need to get to the bottom of it.The Ignite series is a very powerful series of books. Ignite Your Life For Men which was the first book I contributed to. And also Ignite Your Life For Adventurous Spirit. And there is “Ignite Your Life For Conscious Leaders.The process of working with JB and her Ignite team of editors has helped me to really clarify my writing and make it more engaging and interesting for the reader.Lifestyle is more important to me instead of accolades and status.JB was the catalyst for taking his writing to the next level. His biggest break through was a few years before… Sabotage ect. JB helped him articulate that to help other people.When I was younger I loved material things and I liked to have nice cars and gadgets and things. And so when I was younger I was much more interested in that and led by those choices. If it meant I could change jobs and get a better car with better salary I'd have done that through my carrier. I guess I would have put that down to ambition and striving for something more than I had. Now the focus is much more around relationships are much more important, the ability to be able to travel and hang out with people on a similar vibration. I would rather create opportunities to walk on my favorite beach rather than being the number one coach in the UK. That's not even in my field of vision.Do you have 12 step stuff in your life to transcend your addictions and compulsions? His great aunt in Ireland, was one of the founding members of AA in Ireland. But I have never been through the 12 steps. (It sounds like he'd call them addiction light.)The turning point for him: In 2005 his younger son was diagnosed with a life limiting condition. “And that was truly truly a bitch slap moment you would never want anyone to experience”. I was being strong resilient and emotionally strong but on the inside I was crumbling I was crushed. And the addictions became worse at that point. I was making really poor choices. It worsened when I separated from my ex wife now. In the end I became so addicted to my own negative emotions… etc etc. Anger, sadness, fear. I got to the point where I was addicted to that. I was effectively long term sadness was a big impact for me. It took me a few years to get beyond that. Recover and heal my suffering. 12 steps my have helped accelerate that. And the opportunity to develop a relationship with a higher power.But he does that anyway. Higher powers, gratitude, the abundance of the universe. When I first go this and I was awakened and got a different perspective. At first I was setting about trying to convince others and it became obvious that you cannot wake people up if they are not ready for it.Look there is this whole world of possibility around love, around abundance, around creativity, around what you want to create in the world… there is an abundance of everything you need. You can tell people about that but you can force people to want it or have it they have to choose it. I love it that it is an active choice that people have to make.A mentor tells him, 90% of the people that are completely asleep to their possibility of what they could create or what their potential is. There's about 9% that are awakened to it but haven't achieved it yet. And there's 1% of people that actually step through go into threshold and create what they love. Tapping into that 1% of people…is a joy to experience and watch and see people do that.“I'd say I'm in the 9% definitely” “Occasionally in some areas of my life I'm definitely in the 1%”. Moving counties was definitely and intuitive choice.Some cryptocurrency shenanigans…Astrology wise - He's got people who are tapped into that and use the astrologies rhythms and planets to tap into their intuition.His 5 year go mentor? Ryan Pinnick. A South African guy based in the UK. His choices with addictions resonated with Damien. Damien was all in with Ryan. He has been very good at helping Damien heal from his suffering. Ryan is gifted at teaching you how to tap into your own intuition.His son has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.The coincidences of seeing a few bricked up windows… What's the universe trying to tell me? A vision of healing suffering? What was obvious was…I couldn't see beyond what was in front of me to see my vision. These messages are coming through all the time, everyday, you just have to be present. You can tap into amazing choices, opportunities. A cool mediation. Go in with innocence, ego stripped away. What am I to create?Breathing techniques. You go into a different state. You change your state of consciousness as a result of your breathing. Suss out some topics, make choices from those ego free topics. And what you can do to honor that. Are you still focused on the vision you want to create? In my relationship “I choose a beautiful loving relationship where are hearts touch together to create magic.” If I'm in the relationship from that choice you can't do it from anger.The scientists, what are they trying to do? Well, they have a true belief that they have the ability to cure incurable diseases. They work inside structures that suppress that. Lots of red tape. When you look at the purpose of a biopharmaceutical company…is to create customers for its product.”Scientists are incredibly intellectual and incredibly clever. In some respects that's probably their biggest barrier. Getting out of their brain and into their heart that they would love.Perhaps bridging eastern and western medicine is a worthy utopia to head for.Just because your inelegant does not mean you can tap into your intuition. A great thought.Albert Einstein talking about shifting your level of conciseness back in the 1930's.Steps to tap into intuition - Starting points are always to get out of the head and into the heart and one of the quickest ways to do that is to get into nature. Remove your shoes and socks and walk barefoot on the grass or the sand.Book recommendation: The Kybalion. It's a great way to tap into what's possible for the universe. There's some principles of the universe almost. Hermetic/Hermes. Hermetic Philosophy. Listen to it on YouTube. It's quite a complex piece of work but it is worth it.The big point from the Kybalion from him. “The all is mind. And the universe is mental held in the mind of the all.”What could people do if they were on stage one of their wake up? I would love to share some more things around that.Understanding your uniqueness in the world is very very important. Your odds of being born are ridiculous. We can get trapped in this rat race in this matrix. Waking up from that…Get out in nature.Tap into what are your talents and what are you really really good at they have fun and pleasure doing it. Then you can have fun and make money doing that…Ikigai - Japanese - What are you here to do, what is your purpose. We can see things from a different perspectives. Alan Watts was genius at this, bringing eastern philosophies to the west.There is ancient wisdom that is there, all we need to do is remember it. Don't be attached to your own identity, be prepared to strip yourself down to the bear nothing… Psychologically, emotionally, spiritually, to then really start to layer on who am I and what am I here to create in the world. And that's a beautiful thing if more people could understand that journey and be on the journey that is a rewarding place to be.Nature is very powerful at creating things, maintaining things, and destroying things. What are we here to create and what are the things that we need to destroy and leave behind. It is around you you've just got to pay attention to it.He encourages you to check out anything by Joe Dispenza!Find Damion Culhane herewww.Damianculhane.co.ukHis podcast the Self Sabotage show. https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/the-self-sabotage-show-with-damian-culhane/id1538003861Ignite Your Life for Conscious Leaders: Elevating and Transforming the Way We Lead Ourselves and Others in a New and Conscious Way https://smile.amazon.com/dp/1792306687/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_C8QKE7T350Q3M890N1A1Ignite Your Life for Men: Thirty-five outstanding stories by men who are supporting other men to become the powerfully- enlightened, courageously-awakened, conscious role models they were born to be https://www.amazon.com/dp/1792306679/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_TBHPA0F3TYMFP3CA9Q16Ignite Your Adventurous Spirit: Inspiring travel stories by individuals whose lives have been deeply transformed https://www.amazon.com/dp/B083LGWY6K/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_GCD776WNPQ9M8TM8MT8DThe book he's working on How To Pivot Your Mindset Post Lockdown.Start podcasting!

I reflect on the two of things I've learned since starting the summit two and a half months ago: iMovie and how to post from a Google drive onto the social media. And also how I have already have gotten to take my limited summit experience and use it to be of service! Episode notes:Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitTwo things I am going to talk about on this episode.Things I could not do before the summit and things that I can do now (There are at least two)How I got to be of service. I got to take my current summit experience and help somebody else who is going live with there summit the same days as mine. I had something to offer them and help them.Sorry to yawn at you. I'm getting close to the official summit being live. It is the final push. It's two days away. Sleepless nights. (When I recorded this the Tools For A Good Life Summit was just about to go live.) The first thing that I could not do that I can do now. iMovie - 10 weeks ago when I committed to producing the summit I needed to edit the summit interviews. Or pay someone to edit the summit interviews. I decided to do it myself. And I had zero experience with iMovie.The first time I opened iMovie I almost lost it and it was almost the end of it all. Sorry Apple, I hate to say it, but iMovie is not intuitive at all. With a little bit of fortitude, wherewithal and trying… Fast forward to now where all the videos are edited with intros, outros, seamless transitions… It's really fun and making all of that work. And actually getting fun commentary in that regard. Your transitions are awesome, your editing is cool, it's a lot of fun. That's the feedback I got. That is just amazing to me. I've really been reflecting on that fact that “Oh my goodness, two and a half months ago iMovie was the bane of my existence and now it's a tool for fun”. So supper cool.My registration page video I needed to change something about a week after it was already on the registration page. So I had to find my same shirt, make sure my hair the same messy. Having it look unruly is not the challenge. Having it look unruly in the right way could be challenge. I had to have the camera at the right angle, the lighting, all of this. I reshot, spliced it in and it came out great.The next thing is the Instagram and the Face book. How long have these things been around 20 years by now. In a lot of ways I'm way behind the curve.I've been needing to market the summit, specifically this is about the instagram. I was needing to access the promo center that I made and pull down the imagery to make the post… And suffice it to say it was a challenge. The first time I tried it it was a “Challenge” and I wanted to throw the phone across the room. Now it is easy. It is all linked up and it is pretty awesome.I had somebody go to the “Link in my Bio” and register. Oh My Gosh so it worked. And it's like the lightbulbs just went off in my mind. Mind blown. I start to see the broader vision, the bigger picture.The whole can of worms is open.I got to help someone. I have a ton of sales experience. Follow up Follow up Follow up and how to communicate with people you are trying to work with. I have managed to drive some registrations to the registration page via the speakers. A person in the coaching group I was in has a summit going live same time as mine. She was focusing on adds to drive registrations vs speakers promoting. So she was asking me how was I getting registrations and how can I do this. I was able to give her all the texts that I was sending to the speakers and to my sphere of influence to encourage people to promote and register. Along with some email templates. So that felt real good. It just felt really good to be able to help like that. “Here's what I created, it's yours to use”. That felt really good. She was so excited! To use what I made… To be able to give back like that and encourage somebody and give them a little hope… Being of service is a big part of why I do the things I do. I'm hoping to be helpful. To be so new at the summit thing and then have my limited summit experience be able to help somebody felt real good.Things I've learned in the 2.5 months since I started the summit. 1) iMovie 2) How to post from a Google drive onto the social media.I was able to help somebody with their summit marketing.

I am going back and forth with one of my main summit speakers about the nature of some of my content. If I get creative and make some changes he will continue to promote. If I remain stubborn and leave it as is he will step back. His excitement to work with me and for the summits success inspire me to change. I think the real word is surrender.Episode notes:Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitLast we heard I was in the midst of going back and forth with Craig Weiner and will he continue to promote. And I had just started to learn iMovie and iMovie is a burly burly beast.So I was in discussions with Craig and I could just edit the intro to the summit registration video… Change it to “I'm the creator of Be Love Media” vs “I'm the creator of the Bitch Slap podcast”.Craig was so excited for me to make these changes… And then I got a little stubborn. I was pinging back and forth between stand my ground and make the change. But then it hit me, I am the creator and director of Be Love Media and with in that is the Podcast and the Summit. So as far as a bigger picture move and what I'm doing ‘I love it”. But my stubborn side was like “hold your ground”.So in stead of doing anything I decided to just not decide for a day or two… And then all of a sudden Craig emails me and says “are you going to make the changes” I'm excited to get you on the news letter today, but I could wait until Wednesday… He was so excited and wanting us to have success, so I capitulated! And committed to make the changes…So I had to re shoot the intro to the video, find the outfit, the light, my hair, the scene, the look, lol! And the camera was at the wrong hight so I had to reshot again… and the clock was ticking. And I got it all done by the very last second and meet his deadline.I was willing to put my ego aside, capitulate and make the changes… The definition of Capitulate: Cease to resist an opponent or an unwelcome demand; surrender. The final copy “Hi, my name is Mischa Z and I am the creator and director of Be Love Media where we create content focusing on personal growth, transcending life's rough patches, and serving our world through change.”Start podcasting!

One of my main speakers on the summit gives me pushback on promoting! He just noticed that my podcast is called “Bitch Slap …The Accelerated Path To Peace!” and one of his audience took offense :). Perhaps there is a solution? Episode notes:Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitThe ol' Shure MV88 mic! Another shameless plug.This episode is about capitulating and staying flexible. And being willing to change. In the line of fire being willing to change. I can be stubborn sometimes. There's nuances within being willing to change and stubbornness.I have my summit in production :). Register at ToolsForAGoodLifeSummit.com. If you are listening past August 4th-6th you can still go log in and watch!One of my main speakers Craig Weiner, who does EFT/Tapping, an amazing man. Has so much good insight. Decades of experience. I was excited to have him promote the summit to his audience. He was not happy with the “Bitchslap” podcast title name! Some of his audience were not big fans of the name :). Thought that it was perhaps offensive and giving Craig pushback on aligning himself with me. He was very gracious and gave me an op to explain what was up with the title.Risk reward for him he decided not a good fit to promote. And god bless him for communicating vs just dropping off of the face of the earth. After some prayer, meditation, journaling, ACIM on it… I had some massive inspiration that it would be so easy for me where I mention the podcast name I could simply talk about my company name Be Love Media that is producing the summit. Super easy change. Other spot was the begging of the “hello” video just edit out and swap in the Be Love Media… Which is a super easy fix.Which is crazy! 3 months ago I had no idea how to even use iMovie let alone quickly edit out and in a new video intro. Listen tomorrow for part #2 :).Start podcasting!

A Course In Miracles is talking about the idea that Pain And Pleasure are both illusions and unreal. Ironically I get to take some negative commentary and some minor successes and put those ideas to the test.Episode notes:Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitA Course In Miracles (ACIM) and pain and pleasure are equally unreal. They are both illusory and they are both the same. ACIM had been hammering home for months that pain is not real. It's just playing god. Our ego's being out of control. It's all in my perspective in the moment. For me as I'm closer to source, if I'm feeling that in the moment purity that illusion of pain goes away.We can talk about physical pain. The idea that we are going to all die. The way that we relate to this world, this existence, our bodies are no longer going to be of use on the planet…And by the way, pleasure is just as unreal. Pain and Pleasure are equally unreal. Just to drive this home. There is a guy, who in front of lots of people, says “it looks like a poodle is fucking your head.” Kind of aggressive but you've got to be able to laugh at yourself…So then I go out on this boat trip, some pictures are taken, I'm in the background, someone who is not on the boat trip, sees a picture and says “Who brought the poodle?” What I wanted to reply was, “you must have got your ass kicked a lot in high school…” but I didn't lol.And then what I was going to reply was, “Steve brought the poodle”. Because I car pooled with Steve, which I thought was rather witty :).As this is flying around in my head I'm like “I've got to let this go.” And then the idea struck me that this pain and pleasure is equally unreal. So I give a quick resentment prayer to this dude… And then I'm like wait a minute Mischa, I like when people say, “Oh, you're so insightful”, or “your hair looks great”, or “You look like Robert Plant.” That's the pleasure piece. The good with the bad. This is such an opportunity on a nuanced level to take the good with the bad.To not let a negative comment create operation from source. Just like if I get positive commentary not let that affect me in the same way. Not let either go to my head and affect me.So ironic on the day ACIM is like Pain and Pleasure are equally unreal, I get the opportunity to pay attention even more to the positive commentary. I need to be prepared and let the negative commentary flow through as I need to be prepared to let the success flow through. 1000 people register for the summit I get to let that go. 10000 people register for the summit I get to let that go.I notice as I check compulsively the registrations. If there's lots of new ones don't take it personally, if there's no new registrations don't take that personally. Or even better how about just don't check compulsively. Start podcasting!

In this Episode of my Six Weeks to Fitness podcast, I explore the importance of motivation to help you achieve a healthy mind and body. Did those extra pounds you lost prior to the pandemic, find you again? If so, now is not the time to give up or give in. It's time to step out of your comfort zone and do what others won't do in order to get what others won't get. Too often we give up right at the doorstep of success, but what if you had that extra motivation from people who have been there before. What if you were to hear the right words at the right moment from motivational speakers that will help push you towards your goals. So you failed at your fitness goals, so what? That was yesterday, today is a new day. Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times before he found the answer. Have you tried even twice or three times before giving up? My father told me many years ago, he said “son, nothing beats a failure but a try,” so each day I get up, I thank God for another day, I start trying, because I know that the race is given to the swift nor the battle to the strong but to the person that endureth to the end, and so today on this podcast, I'm doing something a little different and bringing forth 20 minutes of motivation from various speakers. We all need a little kick in the rear sometimes to wake us up and keep us moving towards our fitness goals. You see, life isn't a sprint, it's a marathon, and I know the importance of finding inspiration and motivation along the way to help keep you focused on your beliefs and goals and these motivational speeches may be just what you need to keep going, so, sit back and enjoy some of my favorite motivational speeches, and if you would like to hear more podcasts like this, just drop a comment and let me know. I would love to hear from you.
I read my list of the mornings notes. Much of which has to do with inspiration and being inspired with next indicated steps each and every day. And there is no need to worry that I won't be inspired tomorrow. Episode notes:Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitTodays notes:Each day I am inspired what to do next. Inspired with the next indicated step. Each day the inspiration comes so why do I think it is going to change?I was inspired how to rally the troops. The speakers to market.In 6 minutes Meg Gibbs inspired me to “keep it simple”. Check out her VIP All access Bonus interview. Cut and paste the marketing! A source of supposed pain and frustration was part of some inspiration to help keep the marketing simple. Serendipitously solution - I was struggling with something on the summit. And I had interviewed Thomas Lancer a month or two previously and was editing our interview. And as I was editing the interview he said the answer to the current problem I was having! So serendipitously solved the problem in the moment.All of the this inspiration, I had a sleepless night, summit mares!, churning about the summit. I woke up, did my meditation. A squirrelly mediation, but I survived. I did my ACIM, and then all the inspiration started flowing on how to market with the speakers.ACIM - how pain is unreal. The illusions of pain. But yesterday it dropped pleasures are just as unreal. Pain and pleasures are equally unreal! You've got to take the good with the bad. You've got to not let the pleasure create separation from source.Success -> pain. Being unwilling to let go. Sometimes we are not willing to let go.Start podcasting!

I really enjoyed my interview with Philadelphia policeman Curtis Ghee. So much so that I run through all the highlights here and how it inspired me. It also gave me a kick that he liked some of my podcast episodes. Episode notes:Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitI am fully on the walking and recording train again and loving it. I was all about it for the first 3, 4, or 5 months. Then they were all from the desk. But I'm all in on it again and it's so fun!I have not taken singing lessons yet.How fun was my interview with Curtis Ghee, listen here: Interview #33 Philly policeman Curtis Ghee: Cops, Robbers, and your God given destiny.I really enjoyed it. My first 30 minutes of it were very disjointed, it felt like it was disjointed and off track, I had all these questions, the way I wanted it to go (but I went ahead and edited it out…). And I finally I was like “You know what Curtis, you are up to all this amazing stuff, tell me about it!” and then it erupted from there :). I really enjoyed it and it flowed… I was in awe and aghast sometimes. He is a black policeman from Philadelphia and has been on the force for 29 years or so. And he was on the streets, patrolled the streets for a good 10 years, of the gnarliest parts of Philadelphia. He's got perspective, stories, awareness… He's got this massive heart clearly. He wants to help young people in his community to find God inspired action or purpose. (Said in a non dogmatic way).He does a huge amount of work in facilitating that and he's out there changing lives. We got to talk racism, black white perspective. Black cops white cops. Black criminals white criminals. He's got a couple books coming out. He has a really cool program to help prisoners and “normal” people… There's the literal prison of being behind bars and the prison of your mind.And he helps police officers and families and the trauma that helps with the job. And when he was talking about police officers as human begins and being human beings like you and me… There was this moment that was so profound, I started to cry. I felt the humanity for that.In the conversation that is on the podcast… This is the analogy he used. If someone is cooking at MacDonalds and they mess up your fires and they make a mistake, they just make you another batch of fries. But in the police officer world, if they make a mistake sometimes lives are on the line. And how brutal and heavy that can be.God bless you Curtis. You are the real deal. He is about helping community and people. He had so many bombs and nuggets. He's got such a big heart, but when he's talking about roughing people up on the streets because that's part of the job. OMG so amazing.Go back and listen to it. Here's the link: Interview #33 Philly policeman Curtis Ghee: Cops, Robbers, and your God given destiny. He was referencing how he was listening to the episodes and how the do the dishes for god episode… He really loved that. You can listen to that one here: “Do the dishes for God”Start podcasting!

Updated title: John Abate and a miracle of forgiveness. My friend John Abate and I are both changing. We are learning how to slow down, hold our tongues, and find peace. Me, I had to go through a divorce and a couple other things. John, well…he almost gets killed while riding his bike. There's broken bones, fused vertebrae, and the miracle of forgiveness. Don't be afraid to listen for the rest! Episode notes:Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitYou can find John Abate and his 8 week MBSR class here: www.mindfulfoundations.orgWe worked together in the mortgage industry 10-15 years ago. I was his boss!It was high stress. The game of it. We were hunters. Type A. Firing away. Sales.We were trying to be helpful and find people where it made sense. He started working with me 2008…. After the melt down.We are different people today. They wouldn't let us in the door w the hair we have today.It has been a steady progression of him slowing down.John is an avid cyclist. He started racing around 07 and it was his cathartic outlet. Him needing a release. He did his first bike race in 2007. With the Swamis cycling club in Encinitas. Their tag line “The gurus of cycling” lol. Racing road cycling fuels our personality types. The A types. Highly competitive. It fed that for him.He gets hit by a car August 2016. Heading out for his 89 mile Sunday ride. Him and his friend. Just leaving, a half mile from his house. He's mid sentence with his friend when WHAM.He wakes up 3 days later in the hospital. And he is beat up. Compound fractures, broken back, et all.Kelly, his riding partner, they are still good friends.The rub. It was a hit and run accident. They have never found the driver. This is where the story that's interesting. Forgiveness.And it's the start of his most recent transformation. He was gifted with forgiveness quickly. “I don't know where it came from”.His sobriety community is rallying around him. On day 3 in the hospital I asked everybody to join hands and just pray for the driver. “Please I need to do this.” That the driver is not suffering and to help me forgive him.It turned out to be one of the most beautiful moments that I have experienced. And certainly other people that were there would attest to it.I needed this to start healing man. Because I had a lot to go through (moving forward).Did that actually help anybody. It truly helped some of those men.That hospital room is a beacon of light. It was really cool.Now John teaches mindful based stress reduction (MBSR) classes.Now the swamis guru bike club has new meaning.Getting sober had started his spiritual practice. Playing w meditation etc. The accident introduced him to MBSR as a modality to heal himself from the accident.He literally can't move due to the casts, traction etc. John is devouring books. And stumbles accoss MBSR as a modality of healing not only the body but the mind. For people that have suffered traumatic injury. I wanted an alternative way to heal along w western medicine. Physical therapy and all that. I wanted to heal w o staying on the medication. And I wanted to be w my experience.I had a lot of questions. What happens to the driver? Will I ever br able to ride again? What's going to happen w my body. MBSR helped me sort though that.“Good thing you were sober and hadn't pushed everyone away still!”And there's the company JoJa Bars. Which he had just started when he had accidentMBSR didn't free him from pain. It helps him deal w it. Survive the PT the doctors appointments. The attachment of pain. The fears of what's next. I overcame some serious obstacles. It was the touchstone moment from his accident. It gave me the opportunity to see If I put my mind right I can do almost anything. That was the shift for me.I ended up taking the 8 week MBSR course at UCSD. Which is the flagship university we're all day teacher training and etc. happens. UCSD Add university of Massachusetts. They are the center for where a lot of this comes from.It affirmed everything I was learning on my own. It gave me the tools to heal. It helped bring me back to 100%. I was happy content and at peace. Forgiveness and compassion.A working definition of Mindfulness as defined by the courses that I teach. Founded by Jon Kabat-Zinn. (Some history of MBSR). “Mindfulness is when we are able to pay close attention on purpose, without judgment.”There is no striving to be perfect. There is no striving to be right. It's just looking at. Paying close attention.“You find a creative way of responding, if it's even needed”His next 5 or 10 minutes are awesome! An explication of mindfulness in action. There is a lot of flow in bicycle racing.I'm just trying to explore the recesses of the mind. What makes thoughts tick? How do those come up? Consciousness is a wonderful thing to delve into.The by product of that is how we treat others people. It gives me pause which is what I need. I need pause! This mouth runs fast when I allow it to.Now John is actively teaching MBSR. Teaching what he learned. An 8 week course.

As I contemplate singing lessons I'm remember how I was told when I was young that I can't sing. And was often asked to stop. Which makes me wonder do I have doubts about the sound of my voice. Both literally and figuratively. And then there's one of my mommy issues…Episode notes:Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitAs people keep referencing Robert Plant, Robert Daltry, Brian May I've got it in my head that I should learn how to sing. Sing the blues. I've always wanted to sing the blues. Play the Geetar and sing the blues. Man I should go see if could take singing lessons.There is a route where I walk in the mornings where there is a place where they teach music lessons. I went so far as to walk by it and see if they teach singing lessons. But to no avail.I have an old memory from back in the day. I had an old Walkman. Back in 7th, 8th, 9th grade… I would listen to my music and I would sing. And my good friend Sam Day did not like my singing and would ask me to stop because he did not like my singing. My father used to ask me, Father: “what did you do with the money?” Young Mischa: “What money?” Father: “The money that I gave you for singing lessons.” Cause I guess I can't sing it turns out.Can I put all that aside? It's such an interesting thing these ideas that get planted in our head. Perhaps I've been worried about my voice my whole life? Both literally and figuratively. I have been insecure about the sound of my voice for many years. I got into cold calling and I got over it. I was told to practice and listen to yourself.Also figuratively. It can be like my ideas don't matter. My ideas don't hold value. My thoughts aren't worthy. Perhaps there's nooks and crannies where that idea has still taken hold. I think it's kind of a cool concept as I talk about it.I should probably go take singing lessons it would be so good for me on so many levels.I've always had a thing for cute moms. Even in my youth. And still to this day. I wonder if it's because my mother was gone for much my childhood. And I wonder if that's what's so alluring to me, that mother child relationship that I still subconsciously crave. I believe I've transcended many of my voice issues. Definitely literally as I will jump on a microphone and a video. I even finally sang karaoke 3 or 4 years ago. I thought there was no way I'd ever be able to sing Karaoke. Kind of like dancing durning a wedding. I'm not happy about it but I'll do it :).I do get fun feedback that I've got a good podcast voice. So that's kind of fun.No figuratively…Definitely refining or searching or find that voice I feel like. I'm having fun exploring it and going for it. Just grab the mic go and start talking. You have no audience anyway. You literally have nothing to loose. Other than blowing up whatever massive or meager audience you have and then dying a slow painful death of humiliation. But other than that not much to worry about.Start podcasting!

With registrations not going the way that I wanted and being burnt from needing to create more products for an order bump I was pushed to the emotional edge. But I know how to come back from that, I have those tools in place.

And a shameless plug for the Shure MV88 mobile mic w/lightning connector. Omni directional in case you want to interview other people. Day three of the summit registration page officially being live. You can register at ToolsForAGoodLifeSummit.com. I'm in the promotion period now and yesterday I was super burnt and crushed emotionally because I didn't have the registrations that I wanted. And there was an order bump and creating those products was taking to much time and keeping me from promoting. I was capitulating on that and coming to terms that the order bump was to much work. I wrote and prayed yesterday and did all the spiritual tips, tricks, and tools to survive. I'm making it sound worse than it was. I was just emotionally tired. It was one of those questioning everything moments. What I am doing with my life, have I made the right choices? I'm 52 and this is what comes up for me. As I am creating a new business and new buis and marketing opportunities it sure can feel like I'm out on a limb. I lose the moment and I start projecting. I start living in yesterday and tomorrow. All the what if's… should haves… On the summit Jamie Marich gives good tools on how to get rid of the what if's and should have's.I did all the stuff I know to do, all the things I talk about on this podcast. I made it through and I had the sense that tomorrow will be a new day. And today is that new day I had new inspiration as I came out of my hectic meditation. I had to do a lot of coming back to breath.The big thing was I just started doing next indicated step with promotion and can I have fun with it. One of them was create an easy to forward text that the speakers could forward and that I could send. I was having great interaction with my friends and some of the speakers. I was talking to a friend texting… And I was like sorry for being so marketing oriented she goes “you don't have to worry…It is bringing so much value and goodness, no problem”… I had my first purchase of the VIP All Access Pass today! And I got a great thumbs up from one of my professional friends today. “Your registration page looks pro”.Start podcasting!

As I was coming out of the summit build and opening registration I thought that all the work was done…that I was going to be able to chill but it turns out I just opened up a whole new can of worms… And it's funny as we grow and change some of our friends may not like it. Episode notes:Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitThe hair keeps growing… I thought the launch was gonna solve all my problems…it just opened up a new can of worms. I thought the summit launch was gonna free me up and free my mind and release me from the tiredness, the exhaustion, the stress. I just opened up a new can of works. I am so burnt and tired as I record that at 10:45 in the evening.Today was day two of registrations. Midway through the day I checked the registrations and there were 4 or 5 or 6 and no-one had bought the upsell… emails were going into the spam email boxes. And it was so anti climactic. REGISTER NOW.There is a thing called an order bump over and above the VIP All Access Pass, and if someone takes that there is an order bump on top of that for $7. Which includes a summit workbook. (Spoiler alert… I got rid of the order bump). Creating the order bump was gonna be a ridiculous amount of work and no one had bought the order bump yet so I said no way, and got rid of the order bump.Now I've got all this promoting to do. Repurposing the interviews and such, honestly I just want to go on vacation. God bless you, go to the summit people!As you are breaking free don't expect them to cheer you on from your cages. When you are trying to grow and make changes some of your friends may be like “don't do that it's lame” etc.Good thing that guys suffering so I can help him.

In Todays Podcast, Jon talks about how being neutral isn't an option. Sometimes we are stuck between to options and unsure of what to do and decided to play it safe and not choose rather than making a move. It's a lose lose situation in that case. Not making a move because of fear puts you at a stand still. Neutral isn't an option.

From Addiction and Felony to Transforming Life Through Health and Fitness with Doug Bopst Everyone has a burden to carry. Everyone has pain or trauma. But not everyone handles it the same way — sometimes, the weight is too great for someone, and they look for anything to numb their pain. Chasing numbness leads them down a rabbit hole of slow self-destruction and disregarding the important things in life. But there's a light that you can reach, no matter how deep the pit you're in. The path to transforming life may take some time, but it's never too late. In today's episode, fitness trainer Doug Bopst joins us to share his journey in transforming his life from addiction and a felony conviction. He discusses the negative mentalities stacked up in his mind that made him turn to drugs at a young age. Doug also talks about how addiction affected his life and relationships and the catalyst that sparked his recovery journey. He imparts the lessons he has learned from his life story and how he uses it to help others.

People have been mispronouncing his last name throughout his life, but he couldn't stand up for himself. It wasn't until he gained self-confidence that he dared to correct people. Your name is your identity. You'll be sacrificing your identity in other ways if you can't stay true to that part. Doug's Background Doug was born and raised in the suburbs of Baltimore, Maryland. He has been a trainer for over ten years. Doug also hosts the Adversity Advantage Podcast, wrote multiple books, and spoke at various events. Growing up, Doug used adversity at his complete disadvantage. He ended up incarcerated on felony drug charges. Turning to drugs and ending up incarcerated was him mismanaging pain, stress, and his identity. Stacking Negative Mentalities Inside Your Head Doug's "What's wrong with me?" mentality is rooted in two things: his parents' divorce and loving sports yet being unathletic. The first thing he used to numb the pain was food. Doug also blamed his genetics for his athletic ability. This mentality stacks limiting beliefs and creates a massive balloon of anxiety, fear, and worry. Doug turned to drugs at 14 and found that he could pop this balloon and numb his pain. Addiction keeps you chasing that same numbing feeling. Because he couldn't afford to buy pot every day, Doug started selling it himself. How Addiction Affected Doug's Relationships If you don't establish an identity for yourself, you will use other people to create it for you. Doing what he needed to do to fit in with a certain crowd created tension at home. Doug's mother kicked him out of the house at 16 and sent him to live with his dad full time. He transferred to another school and ended up meeting different people doing more drugs. Doug barely graduated high school. Despite being a decent student and having dreams, he was only worried about fitting in. The Catalyst Moment He started to sell more drugs for money after graduating high school and met more people doing it. Doug eventually started doing cocaine every day, which affected his anxiety. But ending up in the ER because of his panic attacks didn't change anything for him. He went from taking five milligrams to hundreds of milligrams of Percocet every day to maintain his lifestyle. On May 5, 2008, Doug got arrested for felony drug charges. A cop pulled him over before a drug deal for a busted headlight and searched the car. Doug's Conviction The judge convicted Doug of felony drug charges. He initially got a 5-year sentence in jail but was put under a 90-day suspension. He then received a 5-year probation, 200 hours of community service, and fines. The judge offered to take the felony conviction off his record if he completes the probation without any problem. Doug cried when he walked into the gates of the detention center at 21. He also cried when he left because he didn't want to leave. Transforming Life and Beginning Recovery Doug had to go through detox while in jail. A detox from drugs is like having the worst case of the flu for three weeks straight. Doug's transformation started when his cellmate asked him how he landed in jail. When he told his cellmate his story, his cellmate told him to quit being a victim. It's not what Doug wanted to hear, but it was what he needed to hear. His cellmate told him to own his choices. These words empowered Doug. Starting to Workout After asking his cellmate why he couldn't do push-ups, he replied it's because he was fat. Not wanting to remain fat drove and motivated Doug. During this time, Doug was fat physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. That is, he was carrying a lot of weight with him. His cellmate trained, motivated, and held Doug accountable. As a result, he successfully reached his fitness goal after his sentence. A light bulb went off in his head; he was finally going to change his life. The only repayment his cellmate asked of him was not to mess up and pay it forward. Changing and Paying it Forward Doug stuck to his word. He got to a place where he wanted to help people use fitness to change their lives. He became a personal trainer, wrote several books, and has shared his story on various platforms since then. While changing, he had to earn back the trust of his family. Doug's Recovery Journey He didn't have a clear-cut recovery program. Fitness became his catalyst for getting out of jail. Through that, he decided to change his friends, eat better, go back to school, become a trainer, and pay it forward. His grandparents took him in when he got out of jail. They gave him the sense of love and accountability he needed. When you're in the process of transforming life, you need to take responsibility for yourself. Accepting His Relationship with His Family Part of recovery and life is accepting that some family dynamics will not be perfect. The key is to continue working on yourself. Doug is unsure if there was anything his parents could have done differently to help him with his addiction. But he wished his mother asked him “Why?” instead of “What?” On Addiction and Battling It When we look at the “what,” we come down on the person instead of the underlying trauma. Addiction is an internal battle displayed externally. There's no blueprint in handling this situation. Transforming Life through Faith Doug was at a point in his life wherein he achieved what he previously wanted. Still, there were moments when he felt unhappy. One of Doug's clients, who is a pastor, invited him to church. Though resistant at first, Doug finally tried it out. After praying, he felt the monkey on his back come off — the same monkey that would come off when he was doing drugs. Doug's Final Advice You may be in a place of darkness now, but things will get better. You just need to keep moving forward. If you make choices aligned with your highest self and take one small step every day, you'll get to the light. How Doug Feels Radically Loved Doug experiences radical love when he's making choices aligned to his truest self and who he wants to be in the future. Self-love means that you hold yourself accountable even when life is tough. 5 Powerful Quotes [11:43] “Because I didn't establish who I really was, I didn't stand up for myself. I was just looking to fit in. I always say to people, if you don't establish your identity for yourself, you will end up using other people to create that identity for you.” [28:20] “[My cellmate said,] ‘You can be a man, and own your choices, and know that you got yourself here. And it's up to you to get yourself out.'” [31:34] “What drives me is just being able to share my story, not to, for the notoriety of it, but to help other people get inspired, to help other people get motivated, to not go down the same path that I did, or if they're going down that same path to course correct, if you will.” [35:43] “I believe in having a safety net. But I also believe in doing the work and taking responsibility for yourself. Because no one's coming to save you.” [45:04] “Just know that if you just put one foot in front of the other and make choices that are aligned with your highest self, and in your future, and where you want to go one small step every single day, you'll get to the light. I promise you. There's no guarantee when or how it's gonna happen. But you'll get there; you just got to keep moving forward.” About Doug Doug Bopst is the founder of Doug Bopst Fitness.

In today's episode we are sharing practical scenarios and practical situations of what would be a friend that you wouldn't want to have and what would a good friend say that you do want to keep around. I know we might get a few comments about this episode but this is so important when you are working to be better in life, better in health, a better spouse. We all have people in life that are just not good for us in certain situations but we never talk about this subject. Do you have clear boundaries for everything in life? Do you have low confidence? If you do, it will be harder to maintain your boundaries and say no to the things that do not fit your goals. So a good friend is one that respects your boundaries... Are you having conversations to set expectations of the day or the week or anything that you are trying to accomplish? These conversation can really set the tone and allow your good friends to prove the respect that they have for you. Are your friends providing you with positive energy? Are they staying away from the drama? Are you afraid of not having friends and so you tolerate actions from a friend that you know you shouldn't? These are all topics that we cover in this episode.
