Conquering Death

THE MAN WITH TWO LIVES

Conquering death has been man’s dream since the beginning of time. Today’s podcast guest is a man who literally conquered death.

Josh Mantz was a brave young American soldier deployed in Iraq. One day on patrol, a sniper bulled killed him. He flatlined for 15 minutes.

What does that mean? It means that Josh was officially dead for a quarter of an hour before medics revived him.

Was it a miracle? Who can say? I can’t.

What I can say for sure is that Josh Mantz defied science by coming back to life after a prolonged flatline. Medical experts tell us that the chances of surviving beyond 6 minutes is rare.

Here is another amazing fact. People who come back to life after the six minute mark do so with major brain damage. Not Josh Mantz.

If you are really interested in meaningful change and challenging your limiting beliefs, listen to this podcast.

You will learn about:

  • The real meaning of courage
  • The peace and power of absolute surrender
  • Commitment and true teamwork
  • Compassion as the key to counterinsurgent warfare
  • Trust as the most powerful weapon against evil
  • The power of a peak experience to dramatically change your story

One of the most valuable lessons in this podcast is the importance of getting beyond judgement and prejudice.

Josh Mantz’s riveting true story will inspire and elevate you, and enrich your view of life and the world.

Failing Forward

EMBRACE FAILURE

What is failure? And why has it gotten a bad rap?

Most of us have gone through an education system that stigmatizes mistakes. Make mistakes, and you get low grades. Make enough mistakes, and you fail.

Failing earns you the label of loser, a person of low intelligence. If you accept the label, you step into a low status identity. That identity becomes the frame through which you view the world.

CHANGE THE FRAME

Refuse to see failure as something negative. Answer the question, “what is failure,” like this. Failure is an important necessary step on the road to success. You’ll be in great company.

Thomas Edison is a prime example of man who delighted in failure. On the subject of his many “failed” attempts to invent the light bulb, Edison said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work. Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”

MINDSET – MINDSET – MINDSET

You may know exactly what the word mindset means. But until you experience the power of shifting your mindset, of changing your limiting beliefs (stories) to empowering ones, you won’t fully appreciate the meaning of mindset.

TODD PALMER

Today’s podcast guest is Todd Palmer. His story will nudge and inspire you to view the world through an empowering frame. His story will help you discover a mindset that fires you up and can make you unstoppable. Todd is a guy who failed forward to success. His answer to what is failure was always positive.

YOU WILL LEARN

  • The power of life balance
  • Why DNA is more important that your resume

Story Slaves

How to tell your life story. Huh? “I don’t have a life story,” or, “My life story isn’t interesting,” or, “Only famous or remarkable people have a life story worth telling.”

Did you just think one of those thoughts or some other variation? You’re perfectly normal if you did. And guess what? Those normal thoughts are stories. Stories that limit your personal power.

Don’t think so. Listen to this podcast with an open mind, and you may just have a huge aha moment that liberate you and breaks the bond of slavery to the stories you create all the time.

“I’m not a slave to any story,” you say? Yes, you are, and your “I am not” statement is another story.

The truth is that we, all of us, are brilliant storytelling machines. We create identity stories (often negative), religious stories, political stories, and stories about absolutely anyone or anything that is part of our human experience.

This is neither good nor bad,  right nor wrong. It just is.

HOW YOUR MIND CREATES STORIES

Actually, it can be bad for us if we are not aware of how this process works in our lives. The moment you become aware, you have the power to create and live into stories that make you happy, stories that enrich and empower you.

This short podcast cuts to the chase about how your mind works. It reveals your mind as a trickster who attaches to every thought and creates a story out of it – if you let it.

That’s what worry is all about. Your mind begins with a thought; it usually expands that thought with the question,”what if?” What if this happens? What if that happens? What if-what if-what if?

When  you are a slave to “what if,” you allow yourself to feel a wide range of unpleasant emotions. Guilt, anger, fear, the list goes on. Then, you are a slave to your story and your feelings. No fun?

One way to snap the chains that keep you enslaved is to practice meditation. You will learn a simple powerful technique in this podcast called the blue sky technique. You’ll definitely want to learn it because it may very well be your liberator.

Once you get a taste of mental freedom, you will love it, and you won’t want to slip back into being a story slave. You’ll realize that you know how to tell your life story in a way that gives you fulfillment and power.

Choice Is Power

How can you step into leadership? First, you must learn to lead yourself; only then, can you lead others.

The most effective leaders do not lead by coercion or force. They lead by example; they inspire people to follow them.

Willard Barth is a strong effective leader. He developed his leadership in the front lines of life and business.

He fought personal demons and conquered them. He endured hardship that could have broken him and driven him to play the victim. He became a warrior sage instead.

Warrior sage is not an easily earned title. It isn’t won in the classroom. It’s one of the spoils of war on the battlefield of personal growth.

It is won by having the courage to choose one hundred percent responsibility. When you do that, you own your strengths and your weaknesses, your victories and defeats.

This interview with Willard Barth is for you if you want to learn valuable lessons about leadership, growth, and transformation.

Join us. I promise you enrichment and entertainment.
