Bible Reading: Proverbs 15:3; Ezekiel 36:26-27"Come on, we can sneak in. No one will see us," Paige's friend Noelle whispered, motioning for her to join her at the fence.Paige bit her lip. She wanted to go swimming too, but she knew it was wrong to use their neighbors' pool without them knowing. "Don't be so scared." Noelle climbed up and over the fence. "Come on. It's easy!" she whispered through the slats.Paige stood on the other side, not sure what to do. What will Noelle think of me if I don't go over there? she thought. Maybe we can just have some fun with no one knowingPaige reached for the fence just as she heard footsteps behind her. She startled and turned around. Ronnie, a boy Paige knew from church who lived a few houses down, was walking toward them, his brows lowered. "What are you doing?" he asked. "That's not your house.""Um." Paige didn't know what to say."Ronnie, you can come too," Noelle said from the other side of the fence. "We're going to swim in the Williams' pool.""What?" Ronnie's eyes widened. "Did you get permission?""No, but they're on vacation, and they hardly ever use it," Noelle said.Ronnie shook his head. "That would be wrong."Noelle shrugged. "No one will know.""God will," Ronnie said.Paige swallowed. Ronnie was right. "I can't do it either, Noelle."Her friend scowled and turned away from the fence, walking toward the big, inviting pool. "She thinks I'm too scared to join her," Paige said quietly.Ronnie shook his head. "You're not scared. You're brave.""I'm brave?" Paige asked."It's easy to do what people want you to do, but it's harder to do what's right." Ronnie smiled. "But you can do the brave thing because you have the power of the Holy Spirit. We talked about that in church last week--how the Holy Spirit lives inside those who trust in Jesus and helps us turn from sin and obey God." Paige gave him a small smile. "I guess so," she said. "I'm glad you showed up when you did. Next time I'll try to remember that I can be brave and do what's right because I'm never alone. God is always with me." -Bethany AckerHow About You?Do you ever feel pressured by your friends to do things you know are wrong? Are you tempted to go along with them because you don't want them to think you're afraid to say no? Situations like that are never easy, but if you know Jesus, you don't have to go through them alone--you have the Holy Spirit to help you. He gives you the strength and courage you need so you can do the brave thing and stand up for what's right. Today's Key Verse:For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. (NLT) (Philippians 2:13)Today's Key Thought:You can do what's right
We have been saved, are being saved, and will be saved. But what does salvation really mean? What are we saved from? And what are we saved for?The Bible tells a story of salvation. Situations of injustice, brokenness, and sin cause God's people to cry out for relief. And God answers, from the Exodus to the judges and kings. But hope for fuller restoration and salvation leads us to Jesus Christ as savior. In this podcast episode, we consider the ways in which Jesus is the culmination of the salvation storyline. We also compare the language of salvation from sin, with the salvific language of healing in the Gospels and Acts. How is the wholeness and wellness that Jesus provides connected to salvation for the whole person? And how can we learn to see ourselves as the wounded, in need of God's salvation?For more about us, visit www.facebook.com/devotionaldoctors or www.devotionaldoctors.com.

IT'S BE BRAVE FRIDAY WHERE SHAUN OR I (FROM DOGS ARE SMARTER THAN PEOPLE AND LOVING THE STRANGE AND JUST BEING AN AUTHOR IN MAINE) SHARE PEOPLE'S UNEDITED, UNFILTERED STORIES, SO WE CAN ALL CELEBRATE THE BIG AND LITTLE BRAVE THINGS WE DO ALL THE TIME. SOMETIMES WE DON'T EVEN REALIZE WE'RE BEING BRAVE. This Be Brave Friday story is from the wonderful and brave and cool and talented Lenka Vodicka who writes the Forest Fairy Craft books, which you should check out! Here's Lenka's story. I was a mellow baby that slept a lot. Then I was a clumsy child that fell a lot. Then I was diagnosed with a genetic disease called Charcot (pronounced shar-co) Marie Tooth (CMT) which has nothing to do with teeth. It's named after the three doctors that discovered it. CMT is also called hereditary neuropathy. CMT is a glitch in the genetic code that causes nerve damage, muscle weakness, balance issues, and fatigue. It's degenerative, meaning it worsens over time. There is no treatment, other than bracing and corrective surgery that may or may not work. And there is no cure. I have CMT for life. CMT symptoms can vary widely, even within a family. Some people have mild symptoms that are barely noticeable into their 80s, while others have multiple surgeries and use wheelchairs as children. My case was in the mild category for a long time. I couldn't wear flip-flops, or scramble up rock climbing walls, but most people had no idea that I dealt with any disease at all. I could be normal. My challenges were usually invisible. Situations like mine, where challenges are not easily seen, may be called invisible disabilities. Then, one day, that changed too. My feet hurt. Every day. Every hour of the day. Every minute of the hour. They ached like someone dropped a book on them. And they didn't stop hurting. Fingers went numb. I never considered myself disabled before. The word was serious and full of baggage from sad movies. Facing the reality of my situation required a leap of bravery in itself. I wanted to run towards “normal” as fast as possible. Slowing down, facing my limits, and then asking, “How can I help myself? How can I make my life easier in this moment?” was big work. I changed jobs and got a disabled placard for my car. Then the real bravery began. Because having an invisible disability means that every single time I ask for accommodations, I have to call on my inner brave self. Because my bravery is the opposite of heroes that step up to a moment of decisive action. It's the opposite of heroines volunteering for a mighty quest. It's the opposite of saying, “I think I can, I think I can. I believe in myself.” My bravery is “No.” My bravery is approaching random staff person at a concert or event to ask if there is an alternative line or somewhere to sit that doesn't involve steep stairs. Sometimes the information is online, but that doesn't always translate to the location. And I've even had staff say, “I don't know why the website says that.” And because my disability is invisible, not apparent on first glance, I never know how they will react. Some staff say they have no idea. They need to radio another person that's not answering the walkie-talkie. Or I give a museum feedback that more benches would be great, to hear, “Well, we want people to keep moving.” Trust me, I'd love to keep moving. I've heard many times that, “if we accommodate you, then everyone would want that too.” Again, trust me, they don't want CMT. I've had a few meltdowns when a staff member insists that everyone must follow the same rules. I've missed events and left venues because the walk or the line wasn't worth the pain that I would manage for days afterwards. So why be brave? Why bother standing up to the hassle of disrupting the day for my friends, and the potentially embarrassing conversation, for nothing? Because, other times, bravery makes all the difference. Amusement parks became fun again. My niece said, “We need to come with auntie every time,” because we could stand to the side and enter though the exit instead of standing in winding lines for hours. I got to sit at concerts on a balcony where I could actually see the show instead of sitting in a sea of dancers. I've been able to drive to locations accessible only by trail unless you required disabled access. We avoid crowds and steep stairs. We park closer to the entrances or exits. Asking for support makes adventures attainable again. Bravery can be saying, “not today, thank you.” Bravery can be found in little moments. In the decision to tell your friends that the hike is too steep. In researching accessibility options before booking a room or campsite. In holding your deep truth. And asking for what you need. Bravery is accepting your limits, then finding ways to help yourself thrive. Now, I am a unique mom that loves adventures. And I look forward to many, many more. BE A PART OF OUR MISSION! Hey!

We have all experienced being angry. Angry at ourselves, angry with other people, or angry at a situation. Are you good at controlling and expressing your anger in a healthy way? Anger is an emotion that needs to be expressed in a collected and careful way. Know this - getting angry does not mean you are a bad person. Nor does it mean you are alone. Anger emotions can make you feel isolated from people. Expressing any type of emotion can be one of the most difficult things in life! Recognizing areas of personal weakness is the first step to being able to grow and mature. If an area for you is the anger emotion, we encourage you to press into strengthening this by focusing on a healthy practice. Reach out to us in our Free Facebook community for more focused conversations. We would love to have these with you!

Jeremy Loenneke has a Ph.D. in exercise physiology, a Master's in nutrition and exercise, and is currently the director of the Kevser Ermin Applied Physiology Laboratory at the University of Mississippi, where he focuses his research on skeletal muscle adaptations to exercise in combination with blood flow restriction (BFR). In this episode, Jeremy explains the science of BFR and the mechanisms by which BFR training can produce hypertrophy using low loads. Here, he reviews anatomy and terminology of muscle structure and discusses the evidence that increasing muscular strength may not be dependent on increasing muscle size. Additionally, Jeremy goes into depth on how one might take advantage of BFR training, including practical applications for athletes and average people, as well as the situations for which BFR training would be most advantageous. We discuss: Jeremy's interest in exercise and weightlifting and his scientific training [3:30]; The microstructure and physiology of muscle [8:00]; Definitions of fast-twitch and slow-twitch muscle fibers [12:45]; Comparison of strength vs. hypertrophy [21:30]; Blood flow restriction training and the origins of the Kaatsu system [28:30]; The details and metrics related to exercise under blood flow restriction [44:45]; Considerations when training with blood flow restriction: loading, pace, rest, and risks [53:00]; Blood flow restriction studies and the relationship between muscle size and muscle strength [1:04:15]; Evidence that increasing muscular strength is not dependent on increasing the size of the muscle [1:16:30]; Practical applications of blood flow restriction training for athletes and average people [1:27:30]; Situations in which blood flow restriction training is most advantageous [1:35:30]; The mechanisms by which blood flow restriction training can produce so much hypertrophy at such low loads [1:39:45]; Applications of “passive” blood flow restriction training [1:47:15]; What experiments would Jeremy do if he had unlimited resources?

In this episode, I'm speaking with my estate and business attorney April Charleston, specifically about estate planning. If you have a child and you want to ensure their future, then you have to listen to this episode because you need to have a last will. According to April, the most common reason people wait too long or never get around to completing their will is they don't have anything. They think they don't need it because they haven't saved up a lot or they don't own much real estate. But April wants to clarify that estate doesn't necessarily mean a castle or a stable full of horses, or a million dollars in the bank. Everyone has an estate, even if you just have a pair of slippers, that's your estate. “Estate” sounds fancy, but it doesn't have to be. Another reason is that it's sort of a taboo when we're talking about death since it's a painful process. A lot of people naturally put a wall up between their psyche and that eventuality. But the truth is we are all going to die, and so it's something we need to prepare for. Don't you think this is a loving gesture to people we want to take care of? April also explains that estate planning is not only for when you've passed away, but even very much so when you're alive. And so, if you have family and you care about them, you can definitely make your living will beforehand so they won't have to make those difficult types of decisions, if the need arises. April's Bio April is the founding member of The Charleston Firm in Chester County. April's focus is on estate and trust administration and estate and tax planning. In addition to her estate practice, April represents many small, mid-sized and family-owned businesses, handling and resolving divergent matters. April counsels many families and individuals in a wide array of personal and business concerns. She handles all aspects of both commercial and residential real estate transactions on behalf of sellers, purchasers and investors. April has tried cases in courts of multiple jurisdictions in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey. She also practices in an area of personal passion, by representing both visual and performing artists. She lives in West Chester with her husband and two young children. In this episode, you will hear : The 3 parts of documents: last will and/or trust, power of attorney, and the living will or a medical power of attorney The drafting process and fees Issues and disagreements within the family Situations in the case of name change The legal resolution of an estate administration usually takes more than a year Finding a compromise or everybody else loses When to do an update You don't have to leave anything to your in-laws Understanding the laws of different states Why it's important to work with someone with the legal background Supporting Resources: Episode 43: What Surviving Covid Pneumonia Taught Me https://www.hopetaylormedium.com/podcast/fh043 April's Firm Website: https://www.charlestonfirm.com/ Offerings with Hope or Alex: Distance Reiki with Intuitive Guidance with Alex Personal Readings (Mediumship, Intuitive Guidance, Soul Readings) Mentorship with Hope: Start Your Spiritual Business Available Now Beginner Mediumship Self Study Course Available Now Journey with Spirit Available Now Follow me: www.hopetaylormedium.com www.facebook.com/hopetaylormedium www.instagram.com/findinghopepodcast https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvsTeGQiDr_JPzn_HPSKIiA Subscribe and Review Have you subscribed to our podcast?

3.5 million homeowners in the US could potentially lose their houses and an estimate of 700,000 evictions by the end of the year. The reason for this- Moratoriums. This is not considered a legal thing but the pandemic has resorted to landlords and property owners doing this. Sure enough, this could be a sticky situation where there is so much tension going on with the tenants and the property owners. With all these things going on we might think, how do issues related to this get resolved? Or if you're among those who had been given moratoriums, you might be wondering will it be possible for tenants to not get evicted? In this podcast, we will be hearing Brent Daniels talk about some facets of dealing with the conflicts and how real-estate agents could play an important role in the picture.

This week on The MiFit Podcast I bring back my friend @jameshobart. I was fortunate enough to cross paths with James back in 2014 and since then we've competed against each other on the competition floor, shared coaching ideas off of the floor, and crushed a couple of podcasts along the way. As most people already know, James Hobart is a high level CrossFit competitor competing at the highest level as an individual, team, and as a masters athlete. James has also worked on the CrossFit seminar staff for 10 years and has accumulated a couple hundred seminars under his belt.

I want to share a situation that just happened to me that is a large reason why so many traders fail. Because of situations like you are about to see in the video, many traders are taken to places they should not go and ultimately, will eventually fail. No worries, I will not be lecturing at you "in theory" and talking about how I once read in a book that this is how it could happen. Nothing like that! I will be using some of my personal day trading results that show situations like this occur, and then how they can potentially spin out of control. Whether you are a beginner day trader who is just getting started or someone with day trading experience, it can never hurt to be reminded of how situations like this can lead to failure. While I can not say that these situations will show up the exact same for all traders, I can say that the underlying issue remains true no matter where you are in your day trading career. The only difference is how well you can identify the potential traps and pits that will try to swallow you up as you proceed through your day trading journey. Let me show you what I mean with an emotional situation I experienced first hand.

When he's not traveling around [00:03:10] speaking to companies big and small, he's based in New York City with a seven-year-old daughter and 20-year-old cat and dog. All of whom consistently refused him access to the couch theater. I'm super thrilled that you're here. Welcome. Peter Shankman: Hey, great to be here. Thanks. Izolda Trakhtenberg: I am. I'm a big, huge fan. I have read faster than normal before, and I just got a copy for my husband because the audiobook is out and cause he's not a big reader. [00:03:37] He has ADHD and he's plowing through it and loving it. And he now of course from the movie up, keeps going squirrel. So, at all sorts of times, I want to jump right on it. If that's okay with you. You, it's been said, have an incredible imagination and incredible intuition. And [00:04:00] I'm wondering, how does, how do those, those parts of you relate to ADHD if they do and how do you use them to make it your superpower? [00:04:11] Peter Shankman: Oh yeah. That's interesting. I think that, you know, people would say anything. I think that, that for me, a lot of it. When you have a faster brain, you have a couple of options. You can try to slow down to match everyone else. Or you can accept that that's really, really hard to do, and you can sort of learn to, to speak slower than you think. [00:04:32] So what do I mean by that? I will sit there and come up with 15 ideas in five minutes because it's fun. 13 that might be beneficial to, there might be terrible, whatever, but I will spend time to sort of understand. What's going on and then present the top couple of ideas of the world. The difference is, is that I've accepted that no matter how calmly I do that, that'd be really think that he is crazy. [00:04:55] And so the goal is to learn, not to care about [00:05:00] what people think and never let that prevent you from doing something fun or doing something that you want to do or creating something, something, something new. [00:05:07] Izolda Trakhtenberg: Okay. So within that people might think it's crazy, but you come up with the idea and I'm wondering, are you in that moment trying to solve a problem that you've seen or is it just the ideas of rapid-fire and how do you reconcile the two? [00:05:21] If for example, you come up with an idea that someone else might think is crazy, but it's [00:05:26] Peter Shankman: not okay. You know, it it's, it's sort of stealing yourself in the fact that when you present the idea, there's going to be at least one person that knows what the hell is wrong, you know, but, but then understanding that, that, that, that the situations and the ideas that you presented in the past that actually benefit, you know, I have a little bit of a positive track record in that. [00:05:45] And I've had several ideas of the past that have actually turned into, you know, great companies or, you know, a million multimillion dollar exits, things like that. So that gives you a little bit of credibility. The key though, is to keep moving forward. The thing about ADHD is that is the [00:06:00] forward motion. [00:06:00] Whether you're in, whether you are, you see you and your entrepreneur forward, motion is thrilling. And if you're not going forward, even if you're just standing still, it kind of feels like you're going backwards. And that's a problem. So for me, it's always about forward motion. If I have an idea and it doesn't work, I try and do it right. [00:06:14] That is where I try another one. And they're going to be ideas of work. It happens all the time. So the key is to keep moving forward. [00:06:22] Izolda Trakhtenberg: Okay. And yet there are times when ADHD is something that allows you to think laterally, to look at things from a different angle. How does that align with the forward motion that you're talking [00:06:32] Peter Shankman: about? [00:06:33] There's several ways. I mean, I mean, the, the, the premise of you know, just this morning, I was on a call with a client and, and, and the client was coming back and forth on an idea that they just, they didn't see it working and see it working. And rather than try to sort of convince them that what I said, what if we take it? [00:06:45] What if we go 45 degrees to the left and look at it? And all of a sudden, oh, okay, well maybe that, you know, it's all this stuff that I got in trouble for in school. Right? Speaking, out of turn you know, cracking jokes. [00:07:00] Disrupting the class. Cause I talking about something that completely come up with something completely different type thing. [00:07:04] All of that has sort of given, allowed me to, to, to use that to my benefit as a, as a, you know, as an adult. The key is to be in an industry to be in a place, to be in a world where, where creativity is, lauded is not pushed down and, and, and, and, and thrown away. You know, I know that some ideas I'm gonna, I'm gonna put the effort. [00:07:22] We're not going to do that and that's not going to happen. And sort of once you realize there's gonna be people like that, and you just move on, you find your people, you find the people who, who, who appreciate what you can bring to the table. I heard a great quote once cause there've been times that I've had to let people leave my table because we just didn't, you know, they couldn't understand my speed. [00:07:43] I couldn't understand their non speed. And I heard a great quote. Just because we're no longer friends doesn't mean I wish you ill. I don't want you to starve. I just don't want you to eat at my table. Right. And if [00:08:00] you are creative and your, and your brain does work differently, occasionally you have to realize that not everyone's gonna think like you, and if you spend your entire life focused on the fact that that things you do are not. [00:08:12] Always going to be understood or are not always going to be accepted or, you know, you're not, you're going to be asked. Why aren't you normal things of the day. If you spend your entire life being upset about the fact that's happening, you're never gonna be able to grow. I think Winston Churchill said, you'll, you'll never reach your destination if you stop to yell at every dog barks. [00:08:29] Right. So sometimes you just have to make it on your own and, and, and, and move forward and understand that. Yeah, here we go. And it's, it's, I've found. That's a great success in that. It took a long time and a lot of a lot of therapy. But in the end I realized that, you know, the idea that I've had, some of them have been very beneficial, so it'd be great. [00:08:48] Some of them failed, but I will never stop continuing to do that. [00:08:55] Izolda Trakhtenberg: Yeah, nor should you, I mean, there, there are certain ideas, certainly heroin is one of the ones that I love help a reporter [00:09:00] out. I've used it myself and continue to use it. And th th that, that begs the question that you've had these successful companies, some of them have been multi-million dollar ends, it's you? [00:09:10] And then you're moving forward when you're doing that. There are times, and I've, I've, I've been lurking on your blog. You talk about feeling like an imposter. Okay. So what was that? God? Yes. Okay. So, so how, how does that work? Is that, is that the ADHD brain, is that your personality? And if so, w which, which would, whichever one it is, how are you making those work for you? [00:09:34] Peter Shankman: It's a little bit of everything. I think there's a part of it that. No matter how I could give a speech to 30,000 people and get a 30,000 person standing ovation. If one person doesn't stand up, that's the person I'm gonna focus on. Oh my God, everyone hated it. It was terrible. Let alone the fact that, that my eyes are literally telling me the 29,999 people like. [00:09:54] Right. There's always been a little bit. And again, that's something you have to work on constantly because a lot of times, you know, [00:10:00] growing up with ADHD, growing up with, sit down, you're disrupting the class disease and growing up with you're wrong and you're weird. And why are you so stupid? And why are you so strange? [00:10:06] You know, no matter how much success you have that tends to stick in your brain. And that tends to pop up the most inconvenient times. It's taken years to get over that, but every little bit of success, I have everything that I do that tends to benefit, you know, from that I tend to to learn a little bit more and chip away a little bit more at what I call junior high school, Peter the guy who, who, who took all that shit seriously. [00:10:28] You know, the, the PERT example, we're talking about the triathlon. I ran this Sunday, my friend my coach and my friend was at the finish line. He grabbed this photo of me coming across and my. Oh, my God, I am disgusting. I'm sweaty. I'm gross. I still have 25 pounds to lose. I don't look like a triathlon or triathlete. [00:10:45] It looks some fat guy who just got, and then I had this moment where I saw the finish line sign behind me and realized, no, maybe just a guy who just did this race and that's a shit ton more than most people did today. And once you own that, right. And it was this wonderful feeling of release and feeling of, of, of, of freedom that, [00:11:00] yeah, I did just do this and I can, I can appreciate myself for what I do. [00:11:06] And it it's, it's hard to get there because you know, you sit there a lot of times with your, with your, with your, your, your ADHD and, you know, your concept that, that today's the day when I wake up today is absolutely the day of the New York times gonna have written a huge article about about what a fraud I am and everything I've done is just been locked. [00:11:21] And then when they don't, it's obviously, because I'm not important enough to be written up by the New York times, you know? So there's this constant battle with yourself, but. You know, you do what you can do and, and, and you, every day, you chip a little bit more away at it. Yeah. [00:11:37] Izolda Trakhtenberg: It's so fascinating that you say that because again, my husband has add, and he, and I talk about this a lot about the notion that no matter, no matter what he does, he doesn't think it's good enough, no matter how he's an artist in a clown. [00:11:50] And he always comes back with stories of not thinking that no matter how well he did. It just wasn't good enough. And on some level it might lead him to strive, but there are times [00:12:00] when he just gets down on himself and it's very hard for him to motivate himself and it's impossible for me to motivate him. [00:12:06] So do you get to those places where you actually just stop and go, you know what, I just can't today or are you always going, no, this is it right? Yeah. There [00:12:14] Peter Shankman: all the time. And you know, I have ways to make sure that I am like don't let them. Perfect. You know, let it affect me as, as little as possible, but that way I I, I, exercise is massive, right? [00:12:26] I have to exercise. I have to work out. I have to get that brain chemistry growing in my brain every single day. I was up at 4:00 AM this morning. I was on the bike for an hour. It just, it gives me the, the chemistry I need to, to quiet those demons. Right. For lack of a better word. It's certainly not easy to do, but you know, if I don't exercise my day, And so the key is to find a way to build that into everything I needed. [00:12:58] My dad you know, it's not, [00:13:00] it sounds easy, but you know, when, when you've had it, when you worked late or you had a late dinner or whatever, you know, you get to bed at midnight and it's 4:00 AM and you have to wake up and work out. It's it's difficult, but I know what will happen if I don't. And I certainly don't want that. [00:13:17] So, you know, I it's, I've heard it's called playing the tape forward. Alcoholics talk about it a lot. The premise of that you know, okay, I'm going to have this one drink, well, if have this one drink where I'm going to be in 12 hours and it never ends well when you think of it that way. So the key is to not think about it that way, the key is to not have that first drink. [00:13:35] For me, it's sort of the same thing. If I don't. It'll be 6:00 PM or 4:00 PM and 12 hours we'll have passed either way, but what kind of a damn right, will it be a better day or a worse day? And so that easily enough to get me up. And again, this is enough to get me, but not all the time. I'm not perfect. [00:13:51] You know, I will sleep in every once in a while ago. And honestly, Ben and I will, I will, I will scale workout. The key is not to not to get into such a rut where you [00:14:00] are, where you are without one MIS becomes a 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 weeks cycle. That's you, you know, you don't want to so was one of the reasons I rarely drink anymore is because I would, I would, I would, you know, I wasn't going to have to get drunk, but I, oh, I'm going to client event free. [00:14:14] Great. I'll have four drinks. I'll have five drinks. I wasn't getting drunk, but I. You know, I come home a little, hung up, not hung over, but you know, I'd be a little dehydrated. I wouldn't wake up the next morning and workout. Well, I'm not okay. I might as well. You know, I blew it. I blew the workout this morning. [00:14:27] I might as well get a bacon, egg, and cheese at Suffolk degrees or two of them. Well, I do want my breakfast sized back and let's just get dinner. I'll have a pizza. I'll start tomorrow. All of a sudden it's two weeks later, right. Have gained eight pounds and I'm sitting there what the hell just happened. [00:14:38] So, you know, was a great line from the movie war games where the computer realizes that line wards is the only winning. And for me very often, the only one who move is not to play, I have I heard another great quote, read something like the demons in my subconscious are too hard to be there for us simply [00:15:00] must not. [00:15:02] Izolda Trakhtenberg: Oh, both of those quotes are fantastic. Yeah. I love it. I loved it. First time I saw war games and heard Whopper say that, you know, interesting game, the only way you move is not to play. What's interesting. What was that? Yes, I, yes, exactly. Favorite and. Here's the thing. There are times when we're in situations where, you know, there are people with ADHD who are in jobs that they hate, or, or, you know, are doing the nine to five when, when they're not suited for it. [00:15:27] They're neuro-typical how, what is your, what is your guidance for someone who is, who perhaps hasn't gotten to the point where they want to be an entrepreneur or whether they want to start their own business or where they can be on their own? What do you tell someone who's in that nine to five, who might hate it is not well suited for it because of some of the neuro-typical situations in their lives. [00:15:47] What are your thoughts on that? [00:15:48] Peter Shankman: I think the first thing to understand is that I'm there. I would never judge anyone on what's a job they're doing or how they're living their life. Is, are they happy if they're not going to have the, to change that? You know, there are people, I, you have these, you have these [00:16:00] sort of entrepreneur gurus. [00:16:03] I can't stand it. You know, if you're not happy, you hate your job. You should quit go out on your own, you know? And if you have to work 22 hours a day, so you just told someone to, you know, give them some of the recipe to kill themselves. That's not recommended. Right. Right. So I'm not going to say, oh, you're a miserable job. [00:16:16] Quit. We don't have that opportunity. Right. And, and it's, it's really privileged to mustard. Everyone can do that. So I don't think that way, but I do have everything is that if you understand that you are not happy where you are, you have to start making the correct arrangements so that at some point down the road, You can quit so that you can change your life so that you do, you know, at the end of the day, if you don't like where you are, you can move. [00:16:44] Cause you're not a tree, but sometimes that takes time and that's fine. But the only thing I have a problem with is, is if you're spending a few hours of free time every day, not making arrangements to change down the road, but rather bitching [00:17:00] about your situation, then I kind of. Because you have the opportunity to at least start the process, right? [00:17:08] So if you're miserable and where you are look to things and don't just look for a new job, because it's better than your old job, look for something that will truly make you happy and then work backwards and figure out how to get there. Again, it's not easy. I don't expect you to do it tomorrow, but it is doable. [00:17:21] I didn't become an entrepreneur until I realized I could. I didn't think that's what you did. Both of my parents were teachers. I didn't know anyone was entrepreneur. I figured you worked for someone else. You've worked 40 years. Got a gold watch and retire. I got laid off from America online and my first job out of college and sit in the parking lot, went what the hell just happened? [00:17:38] And I realized I'm going to try it. I'm going to go out on my own. I know how to do PR. I learned from me, well, I'm gonna try it without what's. The worst can happen when it, I literally said when it fails, I'll get a job. Not if it fails when it fails, I'll get a job. It's been 98 to almost oh eight, 18 and almost 24 years later. [00:17:53] And I haven't had good job. So I've been incredibly lucky. That being said there been incredible highs, incredible lows. [00:18:00] But yeah, if you're miserable where you are, figure out what you can do and how you can improve your current situation to get to where you want to be. [00:18:12] Izolda Trakhtenberg: That makes a lot of sense. I I'm going to, I'm doing rapid fire because I know we don't have that much time. [00:18:17] I would love to know from you, you talk about in faster than normal, your fabulous book. You talk about how your body, and I don't know if it's actually all ADHD people, but you say that your body does not produce enough dopamine, serotonin and adrenaline. And I'm wondering how those. Okay. So how does that, how does that relate? [00:18:36] What, what is, what is, what does that do for you and how do you address that issue? [00:18:41] Peter Shankman: So a combination of domains, serotonin adrenaline allows you to focus. It allows you to sit down and do the things that you don't necessarily love to do. So I'll give you an example. In school. I was the class clown, and I would get in trouble for me in the class. [00:18:54] Clown. Why was the class well in the subjects that I loved English. [00:19:00] In social studies. I was never the class clown. I paid attention like the greatest dude in the world, in math, in science and things I wasn't good at. I was the class clown. What I realized 30 years later is why I was making jokes and cracking up and cracking jokes and cracking wise because when I made a joke and other students laughed, they laughed at something I did, which actually gave me a dopamine hit. [00:19:23] And all of a sudden I could focus. Of course I was getting in trouble. But I was actually, if you look at it, the big picture I was getting in trouble because I wanted to learn now I've since learned better ways to get my domain, get my adrenaline and get missing and turn it into meetings with bad jokes. [00:19:41] But the logic is sound right. It is the same thing. You know, we all know every single one of us, there's not a person in the world who understand, who doesn't understand that texting while driving is dangerous and will kill you. Here's how so many people still do it. Why? Because every time we hear a text, [00:20:00] every time we see a message, every time we get a tweet or reply, whatever our brain actually releases domain it's addiction. [00:20:09] So no different, if don't mean, it gives us that focus chemical and that ability to be happy then. Yeah. Obviously you're going to want it and you're going to look for it. So the key for kids today in school, we now understand how to find a better way to get it. I've spoken to schools where they've installed something called bouncy bands. [00:20:27] They're these little bands that sit on the, on the legs of the chair and the kids can bounce their legs without making any noise. And just that gives them some adrenaline kids are allowed to get up, go to the back of the room, right, hang out and and just, you know, work, standing up whatever little things more recess, less carbs at, at, at lunch things. [00:20:44] Izolda Trakhtenberg: You know, what's interesting about what you just said. It bringing up education in my mind, the whole, the whole education system. If I were queen, I would redo it because sitting kids who have such incredible amounts of energy down for so many hours a day, I think is a mistake. [00:21:00] I worked at NASA as an educator for many years and I watched it happen. [00:21:02] I watched kids be bored and they weren't, it wasn't necessarily that they were ADHD. Necessarily, I don't know what their diagnoses, and I know you don't like that word what their, what their state was, but at the same time, I think so many children have trouble with that. And so if, if we, if you were king and I were queen, what would we do? [00:21:21] How would we address kids today? And the education system to help them learn better in ways that work for them, whether they're neuro-typical. [00:21:31] Peter Shankman: Well, you have to, I mean, it's tough because you know, one teacher, 30 kids, you can't make three different ways of learning, but what you can do is you can level the playing field in your, in your favor, right? [00:21:40] So you can create you can create Situations where kids don't come in as entirely high energy. Right? So the premise of the kid wakes up instead of the kid waking up eating two bowls of chocolate, frosted sugar bombs, and sitting in front of television for 45 minutes at school, wake up, have a couple of hard boiled eggs, have some protein.[00:22:00] [00:22:00] Walk to school run around for 45 minutes, go to the school. You've got, you know, have a zero period class that's recess, let the kids work out exercise first, then bring them into school. They did a study in Texas with a school district in Texas, where they did exactly that they, they gave them 90 minutes of recess a day as opposed to 20. [00:22:16] And they upped they, they changed the carb. They dropped carbs in breakfast and lunch by 70% and upped protein by 50% like that. And they saw a 29% decrease. ADHD outbursts in boys and 20, not a 24% increase in girls getting involved in the class discussion. Those are huge numbers. They really are. [00:22:36] Right. So it's those little tiny things that you can do that really do make a huge change. [00:22:41] Izolda Trakhtenberg: Fascinating. I did not know about that study. I'm going to have to go look it up and I'm gonna swing it right back to you and ask you about something you said in, in your book. Again, you said that skydiving, which you are a master skydiver, which I think is great. [00:22:54] It gives you a productivity high. I would love to hear from you. What about a dive? I've been skydiving [00:23:00] once I loved it and I want to do it again, but what about it is your rush? What, what is the productivity high? That's kind of. Well [00:23:07] Peter Shankman: don't mean you're basically jumping on a plane, you're doing something. [00:23:10] Every single molecule or brain says dumb ass. You don't need to do this. The plane can land. And you're literally fighting against that. The second you enter the atmosphere. Second, you jump out of the plane. You're in, you're in air. You're in freefall, your body. You have two choices. I can open my parachute live, or I cannot have my parachute and die. [00:23:23] That's it. There are no other options. It is the most free you'll ever get. And when that parachute opens and you've quote unquote to fight death, I hate that term. But when you, when, when the parachute opens and you've slowed down and the world comes back into focus and you know, your hearing comes back and it's no longer just the wind and, you know, you. [00:23:41] You have this feeling of euphoria and that is all the domain serotonin and adrenaline firing at once. And so I, and that just doesn't go away. That needs to dissipate over time. So I will drop my parish. I will, I will land, I'll put a parachute full, you know gathered up, throw it in the corner of the, of the, of the, of the hanger, pull out my laptop lean on the parachute and then, you know, write 10, 20,000 words in [00:24:00] an hour, right? [00:24:00] Because I'm so high with, I double triple, quadruple the amount of those chemicals in my brain, that focus is. The easiest thing in the world and I'll do it and I'll get it done. And it's interesting because I was dating a woman once years ago, 20 years ago, it was a PhD candidate or double PhD, something way too smart for me, we should not have been dating. [00:24:21] And one of the things she was doing was like, she got paid the government, she got government grants to FICO, came to rats to learn about addiction and pathways and things like that. And, and I'm like, so you get free cocaine. She's like, yeah, let's just table that discussion right now. But the point was. [00:24:34] She took my blood once and she said, I want to, I want to take your blood and see how you are after a jump. And she goes, yeah, yeah. It just comes back a week later. She's like, yeah, you're basically half a molecule off from being a full, a full on cocaine addict. I'm like, I don't do cocaine. She's like, no, it's the same exact chemistry. [00:24:47] I'm like, huh? I'm like, so instead of if I need to focus, I just to go to cocaine, she goes, Peter, you're really not listening. But the premise was that I was getting that same high, but the difference was I was getting it naturally. When you do [00:25:00] cocaine, as I actually taught me The brain fires all those those receptors at once. [00:25:05] Because it doesn't understand what's going on. When you're skydiving, even though you need all those receptors to just keep you alive, the brain is still smart enough to keep some in reserve. It's why after I finished skydiving and finished writing 20,000 words, I could still drive home. I don't know crap. [00:25:22] I don't need to immediately do it again. Right. My body is able to process that keeps on the don't mean for later we turned some of the serotonin things like that, as opposed to illegal drugs, which are, you know, drugs period, which, which don't do that. They just, oh, send it all. Okay. Now you're empty. Right? [00:25:35] It's the equivalent of, of, of being in a helicopter and having 10, 10 minutes of reserve fuel in case in times of war. So, you know, your body is very smart that way, and if you can figure out how to adapt it for me, it's skydiving or running or exercising or public speaking, you know, my. Knows me so well that when I do a corporate keynote, she will attempt to get me back in my seat, on the airplane home within two hours of my coming off the stage, [00:26:00] because that's around the time that I, that I started to come down from the high. [00:26:03] Right. And if she times it well, and there are no delays, I will sit down that plane and I will fall asleep until we get home. And it's the greatest feeling in the world. It's the deepest sleep I'll ever get. [00:26:12] Izolda Trakhtenberg: I it's great to have someone that knows you so well. And that actually brings me to my next question. [00:26:17] Are you one of those people who you're able to start the project and then see it through, or do you get into what my husband and I call shiny, pretty producing things syndrome and go, oh, the next thing squirrel. And then you move on and if so, what kind of support do you have or need to stay on track? [00:26:33] Yeah, [00:26:33] Peter Shankman: it's a dos attention deficit. Ooh, shiny. I have, what I have is a very, very, very powerful calendar. There is not 20 minutes out of my day that is not scheduled. It was brutal during the beginning of COVID. All my keynotes, which went virtual. I had a keynote in Stockholm. Okay. Well, I know I'm taking most of my day to fly there. [00:26:51] I'm going to sleep. I'm waking up the next morning. I'm speaking, I'm spending the day there next morning. I'm flying back home. That's three full days, right? That's 14 hours on a plane and round trip. That is [00:27:00] a. You know, a lot of scheduled time where I can right now that same keynote that would the 45 minute keynote that we want to take three days. [00:27:06] Now it takes about 45 minutes. So I'll do it at 4:00 PM or 7:00 AM or whatever on a, on a Tuesday at my apartment. And I've done it 7 45. I've just done all my work for the week. And I'm like, okay, well, got a lot of free time. Huh? I can start another company or maybe try meth, you know, it's like, yeah. So one of the things I realized, right, beginning of COVID is I have to schedule shit. [00:27:30] Doesn't matter if I have nothing to do, I'm going to schedule something to do. So I spent a lot of time. I bought kettlebells, I've gained 16 pounds of muscle in the past two 14 months, because what the hell else I'm gonna do? Right. But I made sure that my schedule was full and. You know, it's again, it's putting these rules in the plate. [00:27:46] I don't allow myself to ever say, oh, watch it on Netflix. No, the only time I allow myself to watch Netflix or Hulu is when I'm on the bike. Because if I allow myself to do it once I will watch Netflix and Hulu every day and that's it, I will never get anything done. So I only allow myself to do it when I'm working out, because I know I can't do that [00:28:00] forever. [00:28:00] So it has to be about putting these rules into place. Same reason I don't same reason they don't you know, that I have, I have two sides in my closet and they're labeled, right. I wake up in the morning. Okay. Am I on the road today? Am I speaking somewhere? Am I on TV? No. Okay. T-shirt and jeans. Oh, am I traveling? [00:28:16] Am I, am I, or am I, am I speaking somebody? Okay, great button down. Shirt, jacket, jeans. That's it. My sweaters, my best, my scarves, all that stuff. It's in my daughter's closet. So I have to see it because God's been ahead of look at the stuff. Oh my God. What should I wear? I know, I remember that sweater. [00:28:27] I'm like Largan. That's what I wonder how she's doing. I should look her up, you know, it's it's three hours later. I'm naked the living room on Facebook. I haven't left the house. [00:28:35] Izolda Trakhtenberg: Oh, it's like your it's like I'm living with you instead of that's when that's exactly. It's exactly how he does things. And, and it's interesting because that notion of decision-making. [00:28:47] What you, it sounds like you have developed specific processes to, to address the fact that you have sometimes issues, either making decisions or getting onto the next thing. Do [00:29:00] you detail them somewhere? Are there places where if someone goes, okay, I want to know how Peter Shankman does it, where can someone go if they are interested in finding out more about your process and how you've managed to make ADHD [00:29:12] Peter Shankman: or superpower? [00:29:13] So I occasionally. Now for halibut coaching. I have a site for that called shank minds.com/adhd coaching. Love coaching. I'm not, I don't call myself a coach, but I occasionally help people. I talk about this stuff all the time on at shankman.com. I talk about it on any of my social channels all the time, which is at Peter Shankman and all the channels. [00:29:32] I encourage people to email me. You are welcome to, to reach out if you want to go for a run or, you know, the only thing I will not do is sit down with you for a meeting, but you want to go for a walk and talk. You wanna do an Aaron Sorkin style Westwind meeting. We walk 25 blocks and you know, never stopped. [00:29:44] I'm happy to do that. I I'm always, you know, what I used to do when I'd go to the airport is if you really want me bad enough, you will take a ride to the airport with me. Right. We'll take New Jersey transit from the city to, to the airport. And you'll have me for about 40 minutes. Talk about what you want. [00:29:57] Right. And, and you'd be amazed how many people would do that. So yeah, for me, [00:30:00] it was really about about Knowing what works for me, understanding that it might not work for everyone else, but happy being happy to share what I do. [00:30:11] Izolda Trakhtenberg: I love that. And I'm so grateful that you said that because I'm at some point going to take you up on that. [00:30:15] I won't, I won't run, but I'll walk. So I have just a couple more questions if that's okay. I wanted to ask you about new ideas. They come to you fast and furious. Where from what does your brain do differently in that way? And how do you file them? Or do you just remember the. [00:30:32] Peter Shankman: I write them down. I write everything down. [00:30:33] When I run, when I exercise, I use my apple watch. They make, they make notes. They make memos. This morning on, on, on the Peloton at 4:00 AM, I came up with two video ideas. I put them both on this to remind me in three hours to try this or that, you know, as long as it's written down somewhere, I can then translate it three hours later. [00:30:47] When it reminds me I could transfer it to a Google spreadsheet or whatever. And I'm able to, to keep this on when I need to do okay. I gotta write, gotta create something this weekend went, oh, look, all this stuff I have. Right. So, so. Everything because you know, some of the greatest lies in [00:31:00] the world you know oh, I'm only five minutes away is right. [00:31:03] You know, those great, great lies the checks in the mail. And I'll remember it when I wake up. [00:31:08] Izolda Trakhtenberg: Oh, absolutely. I never do. And I keep, I do keep a journal right by my bedside so that I can write first thing in the morning. That is so important to me as someone I don't have ADHD or add, but I do forget, and I get lots of ideas. [00:31:20] So I think I'm so glad that you said that about writing everything down. I think it's such a fantastic way of, of making sure that the things that you think are important, actually get down and kept. And kept as important. I I'm so grateful. I know this has been fast and furious. I am so grateful that you took the time to join me on the show. [00:31:39] And I'm going to put everything in the show notes as far as where people can find you. And I have just one last question that I ask everybody who comes on the show. And it's a strange little question, but I find it comes with some profound answers. And the question is this, and you as a skydiver will have a particular opinion on this, I think. [00:31:55] And that is this. If you had an airplane that could sky write anything for the whole world to see. [00:32:00] What would you say, [00:32:08] Peter Shankman: love yourself? [00:32:11] Izolda Trakhtenberg: That's beautiful. Thank you, Peter. I really appreciate it. I appreciate you being on the show. Thank you so much. My pleasure. This is all the Trakhtenberg for the innovative mindset podcast. I'm super grateful that you joined us. This has been a fabulous, I'll be a quick conversation with Peter Shankman.

Visit http://JohnBlakeAudio.com to Learn How to DOUBLE Your Enquiry-to-Sale Conversion with The Lead Flow You Already Have. In this episode, we are going to talk about five situations in business where sales training doesn't work and what to do about it. It may seem very unusual for me to be talking about this subject today, especially, since we just went through the importance of training, and the differences between generic and customised training last week. However, it is essential to evaluate every situation and determine if sales training is the way to go, or if it'd be a waste of time and money. To illustrate my point, one of the situations where investing in a training program is a bad idea is if you have high staff turnover. Often companies will come to me and say, “we need to do some sales training”; I ask them, “how long have these people been with you?” If they say, “Oh, we've just replaced everybody”, that's an alarm bell! That says to me that there is a cultural problem that needs to be fixed as soon as possible. What is the point of training a team if they're not going to stay? The problem might be bigger if there's a pattern; if you've got more than 60% or 70% of your team turning over every year you should really take a closer look at what's going on in your business. Remember, people don't leave businesses, they leave bosses. Besides a cultural problem, you may have a recruiting problem or a systems problem. If you've got high staff turnover, there are definitely some things that must be taken care of before you actually invest in sales training. Today, I am going to share with you five different situations where hiring someone to train your team is not the best option. Listen to this episode to identify if you can relate to any of these scenarios, and if that's the case, you will learn what to do to fix the issues you have so that you can eventually maximise your results with great sales training.

This is an inspiring and fearless conversation with Mandi Franklin, pediatric nurse practitioner and children's book author. Her new book is called Is My Best Friend a Robot? The book is truly a gift to young children and families. It gives readers of all ages the words to talk about things we don't understand - whether it's an insulin pump, other childhood illnesses or any misunderstood differences. It is truly a book about curiosity, differences and what it means to be a true friend! Listen to this conversation and you will hear strategies and tools to talk to young children and also to encourage empathy and playfulness! I recommend this book for every home and every classroom. And I recommend Mandi to be a guest reader and speaker. She is a fabulous resource to families!
In this episode of Triple Zeros: Reacting to Thursday Night Football and setting up the Week 4 slate. Among the biggest storylines are Andy Reid's returning to Philadelphia as the Chiefs take on the Eagles for the first time since 2017 and Tom Brady's return to Foxboro as his Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots. Plus the Chicago Bears move to Arlington is big news but secondary to needing a win this weekend as Matt Nagy (and several other coaches) could be feeling the heat. Things turn to the NBA as media day on Monday gave us a ton of soundbites and controversy. Ben Simmons still wants out of Philly and Joel Embiid has thoughts. Karl-Anthony Towns sounds tired of it all, and Zion Williamson insists everything is good down in New Orleans. All of that and much more!

He turns to her and says, you let her die, I let you live.And OF COURSE SHE DOESN’T.

The teachings of karma are vast and profound, and they are central to the message of the Buddha • the term “karma” is often oversimplified, dumbed down, and intermingled with notions of blame and reward, judgment and punishment • but the teachings of karma are not about judgment or punishment; they connect us to a vast interconnected web of cause and effect which is totally impersonal and inexorable • a central notion of karma is that our actions matter: every action leaves some kind of an imprint or a result, and every action comes from somewhere • action in the dharma can be boiled down to a simple formula: given the situation that I am in, what should I cultivate and what should I refrain from cultivating? • the Buddhist view of karma is both realistic and visionary; without choices, without open possibility, there would be no path • to a large extent the teachings of Buddha are that we can work with whatever our situation is, no matter how difficult • the more we understand the workings of cause and effect, the more the choices that we make can further our understanding and progress on the path of dharma.

This week's episode is out, and as always I wanted to get it straight to you! This week's episode was a request: what about those mistakes that people make early on that can actually be dangerous? And how do you avoid them? So we talked to two people who had just that experience and were willing to share their experiences, and some tips for next time. Huge thanks to Diapered Wolf Pup and Arellabell (who wants me to tell you she is 5'10" tall for some reason, which is absolutely untrue) for being brave enough to share their stories!

Do your employees feel like they're a means to an end? I think a lot of team members don't realize—or believe—that we care about them. Some feel that when you hold them accountable to hit their numbers that data is all you care about. But that isn't always the case. At the end of the day, we're all business leaders who need an efficient working environment. So where do we find a balance between data, accountability, and caring for our team members? How do we drive profitability without driving our employees away? Listen to this episode of Making Chips for the full discussion!

Everyone wants to harvest data. But can you take it a step too far? Can there be an imbalance in the data? On a recent episode of Russell Brand's podcast, he talked about how Amazon's delivery people have an app they have to use. The app tracks every move they make and everything they do when they deliver packages. But it appears that Amazon is tracking metrics that are outside of the control of the employee and using those metrics to evaluate them. We believe when you hold people accountable with metrics it should be something that's within their control. But Amazon has taken it so far that people are being fired when they don't meet the metrics of the algorithm Amazon has in place for delivery drivers. When Russell Brand described this, he pointed out that Amazon was treating their employees like zombies living in an algorithm—disposable cattle. The data doesn't always show the full picture Nick had a conversation with leaders at AME and Hennig about compensation for their salespeople. Commissions are results-based compensation and the result is why you work. But there are other activities salespeople do that add value. They do activities to achieve an objective to create a result. So his company talked about activity-based objectives they could compensate their salespeople for. They decided compensation should be a mix. Salespeople are driven by increasing their compensation. So they tend to focus on what would compensate them the most. But if your company wants them to focus on other activities not directly tied to making a sale, you might have to compensate them. You have to match the compensation with the desired behavior. Situations when data-tracking is necessary I just took off the month of August and ZENGERS had a record month of sales while I was gone. I'm not trying to micromanage my team. They have an overall objective—sales and profitability. My goal is to train them on the right things to do to achieve that goal. I'm not saying they need to make a certain amount of calls a day or track every detail. I give them an overall mission to achieve but I don't track their every movement. I feel like asking your team to track everything they do is the kiss of death. But is that true for every business? For Jim, due to Carr Machine & Tools AS9100 certification, they are mandated to document all of the results from their machining process. He runs a data-driven and oriented business where he has to measure, record, validate, time-track against jobs, and more. And of course, each individual on my team has those types of quality measurements that they have to hit. We record data that contributes to useful management of your team. But I don't want my team to record data that's pointless. Nick's brother always says that any data that you record and isn't used to make an improvement is wasted money. Wasted information is wasted action. The bottom line is that everyone needs to take a step back and think about this. Are the right activities being tracked? Are you gathering useful data, or just wasting time? You need to collect the right data that helps you drive profitability for your company. Listen to the whole episode for the full conversation.

Thank you for listening to the Champion Forum Podcast with Jeff Hancher! Have you ever gone through a situation that seemed impossible? My guest on this week's episode knows what it means to have to overcome obstacles. After being crushed and mostly paralyzed by a 2000 ton bale of hay in 2001, Chad Hymas had a choice to make. How was he going to respond? In today's episode, we talk all about how he chooses to respond and move forward. But we also talk about the influence one man had on his ability to come out of the accident as a better man: his father. You'll hear story after story about how his father's influence taught him to be a better leader, father, husband, and businessman. I know that this episode is going to inspire you as much as it inspired me.
I am honored to share with you this week's episode with my incredible guest, Garrain Jones. His story alone is mind-blowing. What he shares today will empower you to take a new approach to life and help you to transition any area in your life you are not loving. Learn how to make shifts in your life to create extraordinary results so you can live with more joy, freedom, and abundance in all areas of your life. No matter where you are in your life right now, you have the ability to completely transform where you are headed. Garrain Jones is a transformational coach, speaker, and best selling author. Garrain dealt with homelessness for 2 ½ years, living out of his car, 200,000 in debt and feeling like he was drowning in misery, as well as being sent to prison for 2 ½ years. Yet, going through both of those difficulties, and more, he found a way to turn his life around. Garrain's story is a perfect example of how you can go through so many difficult things in life, but that doesn't mean you'll never find success. In a place of difficulty, Garrain developed the strength to rescue himself. Health and fitness play such a big role in his life because he grew up thinking success was in material things. It wasn't until he got healthy that he started to feel different. Once he started to feel different he then started to think, speak, and act differently. His actions changed based on how he was feeling. In todays episode we talk about: Being in the flow of giving and receiving How proximity is power How he was able to find freedom, where his freedom was taken away The 4 step process to manifest your desires How changing your mindset will change your life and how you can do this today Breaking the chain of trauma so you don't pass it down your family line and much more For full show notes and episode resources head to https://ericalippy.com/garrain-jones/ Find our guest at: https://www.garrainjones.com/ https://www.instagram.com/garrain.jones/ https://www.facebook.com/Garrainjones Please don't forget to subscribe and leave a review!

In this episode, I discuss three situations where it is common for horses to ask questions about the rules. I call these moments ‘Grandma's rules' which is my fun way of explaining that horses are always seeking out the most benifitial set of rules to opperate by. I explain where the name came from and how understanding this can improve your view the questions your horse is asking you.
