192: Einstein Time

einstein time


Are you ready to always be more productive and creative? Are you ready to discover and express your unique ability and experience more joy every day? And do you want these things fast? Then listen to this episode.

Your willingness to stay open to what you are about to hear in today’s show and apply it will help you feel a major shift in your view of the world, your view of time, and your view of yourself.  A shift that will empower your entire life.

Here are a few of the exciting things you will discover as you listen to this podcast:

  • Einstein Time is part of Albert Einstein’s relativity theory
  • You experience Einstein Time when you ask, “Where does time come from?”
  • Time comes from you, and you are time
  • Time is a made up story
  • Change your time story, and you change your life

You will also learn that your time story corresponds either to Newton’s view of the world or Einstein’s. Newton’s view of time will keep you struggling to catch up; it will create a duality in which time is your enemy, and throw you into a battle you can’t win.

As you embrace Einstein Time, you stop fighting time and experience greater harmony. In Newton time, you are swimming against the current. In Einstein time, you are in a state of flow.

At the end of the episode, I offer you a free gift. Listen, learn, enjoy, and thrive.

191: Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones


This episodes explores how the popular HBO series,  Game of Thrones, reveals important insights about storytelling.

You will learn about four different aspects or levels of storytelling:

  • CELEBRITY STORY – Our society is fascinated by celebrities and the phenomenon of celebrity in general. Why do people become passionate fans of anyone or anything? What emotional stories do they create in their minds that make them loyal to people, causes, and brands? How can you tap into the power of celebrity loyalty and apply it successfully to your business? How can you create a story about your products and services that becomes a movement that people want to join?
  • SOCIAL MEDIA STORY – Social interaction is predominantly online today. Do you have a huge following on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and other social networks? Do you want to grow your following for personal or business reasons? What can you learn from Game of Thrones that will dramatically increase your influence?
  • WHY GAME OF THRONES IS REAL – I Game of Thrones pure fantastical fiction? Or, is it closer to real life than we care to admit? I believe that the show is a metaphor for our current world and its conflicts. Look at it through the lense of social commentary and you will recognize the battles that are raging in Israel, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, India, the United States, and the entire planet. Look very closely, and you will identify the pacifist message at the heart of the show.
  • STORYTELLING TECHNIQUE – How do the writers of Game of Thrones keep us engaged and curious episode after episode for eight seasons? Study any one episode carefully, and you will discover powerful storytelling techniques, like the cliffhanger.

Who do you root for in Game of Thrones, and who do you think will sit on the Throne when the show ends?

188: Creating Yourself

reinvent yourself


Every minute of every day, you are creating yourself. Am I being dramatic? Am I playing with words? Am I making a bold statement just to get your attention?

No, no, and no. I’m expressing an idea that plays out in my life, in your life, and the lives of today’s guests. The reality that we find ourselves in 24/7 is a self-creation spun from the vivid narratives in our minds.

Every aspect of your life, your relationships, your wealth or poverty, your happiness or unhappiness is a result of a story you tell yourself, focus on, and develop through a series of conscious and unconscious thoughts.

You will experience the things I just wrote about as you listen to the compelling story of Natalie and Joeel Rivera, a couple drawn together by the irresistible pull of their similar unconscious stories.

They met through a series of “random” events, what some would call coincidences. They developed a creative business partnership; then they married.

Natalie and Joeel were on a mission to relieve suffering in the world. They began with a print magazine. Like many sensitive entrepreneurs, they felt the vibrations of change in our global economy.

They understood that the world was moving toward a digital way of life. They transformed their print magazine into a digital one that could reach a worldwide audience at lighting speed. They made the right choice and started riding a wave of success.

Without warning, their dream life exploded when Joeel became bedridden with an unknown illness that ravaged him for more than a year.

Pay close attention now. This horrible experience was only a tragedy if the couple allowed it to be. Huh? That’s right. Their earnings crashed, Natalie became Joeel’s primary caregiver, and they chose to see this entire experience as a journey toward joy and more success. And that is exactly what it became.

You will not be able to listen to their story and remain the same person after you’ve heard it. You will have grown, you will be richer and stronger, even if you don’t feel it immediately. You will be one step closer to creating an empowering story that in turn creates an unstoppable version of you.

Joeel’s illness led to his discovery of the value he could offer people with online education. He and Natalie created more than 75 online courses to help people like me and you to tap into our passions and natural abilities and monetize them while impacting the lives of others.

Their journey can become your adventurous journey of creating yourself.
