241: Face your fears by embracing fear with Fearvana author Akshay Nanavati

If you create a positive relationship with fear, you can accomplish anything. In a capsule, that’s the message Akshay Nanavati, the speaker, author and explorer behind the book Fearvana came to share with me today. He has been featured in Inc. Magazine, Fast Company, Entrepreneur, Forbes and many more high-profile outlets. And get this: the Dalai Lama wrote the foreword to his book after a cold pitch that took four months of confronting fear. Akshay is a veteran of the Iraq war who suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, survivor’s guilt and alcoholism before he learned to confront his greatest fears. By digging deep, he figured out the fears that caused his procrastination and made them an ally. Now he uses fear and guilt to drive his “worthy struggle” of helping others overcome their own fears by embracing them. “If you don’t seek out a worthy struggle, struggle will find you anyway,” Akshay tells me in this episode. And that’s a lot more scary than choosing the fear...

240: Avoid work disasters with a preflight morning routine

Do you own your mornings, or do your mornings own you? If you race to the door minutes after you get up, you carry chaos into your workday. But if you set up a “preflight morning routine” for your workday filled with clarity and calm, that’s what you’ll carry into the office. Studies show that about 8 percent of aviation disasters could have been averted by following the standard preflight routines prescribed by the Federal Aviation Administration. In this episode, we talk about how you can design a morning routine that will help you cut at least 10 percent of your disaster workdays out of your life. We cover six practices we’ve discovered that get us psyched for the workday and give us the energy to go hard all day. If you find yourself rushing out the door at the last minute to get to work without giving yourself any time to go through a morning routine, this episode is for you. If you find that you make bad decisions at work because you’re fatigued or lack energy, this podc...

239: Breaking from the status quo to win in business with Dr. Peter Kan

Do you stick to the status quo too much in your business? Or are you willing to try something new that has the potential to win big or fail big? My guest today is Dr. Peter Kan, a board-certified chiropractic neurologist with training in both integrative medicine and functional medicine. He’s also the co-founder of the Hope Integrative Wellness Center in Gilbert, Arizona. Peter’s career has been on a growth curve ever since he decided to cut insurance out of his practice and work only on a direct-pay model. And in an industry dominated by insurance claims, that was a big risk he had to be willing to try. The risk paid off. His business has grown each of the last eight years since he made the leap. In 2016, it grew by 33 percent. But that’s not the only area he’s done things differently. By propping a camcorder up on a stack of textbooks, Peter also decided he was willing to try becoming a YouTuber. Even though he’s not a trained speaker. Even though he had no tripod. His Facebo...

238: Fight back against your never-ending to-do list

If you don’t know where to begin, your to-do list will never end. But this is a place so many high-achievers find themselves in because they have so many high priorities. When priorities wrestle and never come out on top, that leaves you on the bottom of a fire-breathing dragon of a to-do list that keeps getting bigger. In this episode we want to share where to begin fighting your “to-do list dragon.” This is the proven process that recently guided one client out of one of the worst funks in his life due to to-do list overload. It’s also what helped Bill reset when he was overloaded while I stepped out on vacation. Too many men get behind on their to-do list even though they’re constantly checking things off it. These men have programmed themselves to think they just need to work harder or smarter and never do the right things to fight against a growing to-do list. You don’t have to bottle up your anger or frustration at having a never-ending to-do list. You might just need to...

237: ‘If you can do it, do it now’ with Alan Worden

When are you going to tackle your bucket list? My guest today is Alan Worden, a serial entrepreneur focused on leisure-seeking Baby Boomers who founded Scout Real Estate Capital. For Alan, there came a time when he realized it may be now or never if he wanted to chase his dreams. In 1999, Alan asked 10 trusted friends and advisors for advice. He asked each if it was a good idea to drop prosperous careers and go sailing from the U.S. to New Zealand with his wife. Independently, each of them said “If you can do it, do it now. It’s never going to get any easier.” That was in 1999. Soon after that, Worden spent exactly 365 days sailing to New Zealand in an Everest-sized adventure you’ll love to hear about. (Including a brush with death I won’t spoil for you.) He spent all that time and most of his money to make it happen. For him, it was as much about conquering fear as it was about a bucket list item to cross off. See, Alan’s biggest fear is the ocean. And he crossed 18,000 miles...

236: How to rid yourself of businessmen’s top regret

Is not closing that one deal your biggest regret as a businessman? Or do your regrets tend to be a little more…personal? Well, if you’re a driven businessman and a father, it’s a pretty sure thing I know what your top regret is likely to be. And it’s not going to be about what you did or didn’t do at work. It’s going to be about what you didn’t do at home. One study found that 63 percent of parents regretted not doing more activities with their children, and 7 of 10 felt they took their children’s childhood for granted. That is what will haunt you from your work life right now. You worked too much and didn’t make enough time for the most important relationships in your life. In this episode, we confront the regret of not spending enough time with your kids when they’re young because you’re so busy at work. This is one of the biggest regrets that businessmen face in life, and we don’t want you to be one of those men. If you find yourself telling your kids you’re too busy...

235: Quit playing it safe with Bubba Albrecht of Give’r

Are you giving it your all in business or are you holding back to stay on the safe road? It may be time to quit playing it safe. My guest today is Bubba Albrecht, the founder of Give’r. His company is an outdoor-lifestyle clothing and gear company from outdoor paradise Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Bubba’s gear has appeared in the pages of Sports Illustrated, Outside Magazine and more. But not before Bubba made a decision to quit playing it safe. At one point, Bubba was working two jobs besides running Give’r to pay the bills. In Bubba’s own lingo, he wasn’t “given’r” at Give’r. In case you’re not familiar with Canadian slang, “give’r” means “to give it your all or go for it.” But it wasn’t until he quit his bill-paying job that Give’r really picked up momentum. He launched a Kickstarter project that earned almost 10 times more than his goal and found more success than he imagined possible. If you dilute your success by not taking chances, this episode is for you. If you c...

234: How to say no at work nicely (and be more respected for it)

When the possibilities are endless, it’s hard for a hungry man to say “no.” That’s why men who go to an all-you-can-eat buffet often walk out in major physical discomfort. It’s also the reason high-achieving men end up working ridiculous hours and have no idea how to say no at work. Hungry men in particular—achievers—don’t know how to say no at work when it matters. So many kinds of work seem interesting and fulfilling to a high achiever, so you say “yes” to project after project. Soon, you’ve piled your tiny buffet plate high with all sorts of crap you should never eat. And you still go back for seconds. And maybe thirds and fourths. You want all the work you can get your hands on because you want everything you see that comes with it. Respect, knowledge, money, clients, revenue and cool stuff in your garage. In this episode we guide you through bad reasons you say “yes,” tell you when you should say no and give you an awesome framework for how to say no at work that w...

233: Climbing your personal Mt. Everest with Jim Williams

If business success is your personal Mt. Everest, how do you make that climb? After all, Everest is 29,029 feet tall, and climbing isn’t easy at that altitude. My guest today has an answer, and it just so happens he’s summited Mt. Everest multiple times. Jim Williams is the owner of exploration travel company Exploradus. Jim was the first person to successfully guide expeditions to the “Seven Summits,” the tallest mountains on each continent, in less than a year. That included, of course, Mt. Everest. He was also one of the leaders who made the first overland crossing to the South Pole from the South American side. (He tells in this episode about how his group disappeared on him, leaving him lost in Antarctica!) Despite conquering the world’s biggest mountains, Jim doesn’t recommend starting with a Mt. Everest-sized goal. “Set smaller goals and enlarge them as you move forward,” he tells me in this episode. In other words, you might need to manage your expectations at a real...
