This week I've had a bunch of one-on-one calls with folks who attended ASCEND, the Primal Potential weekend workshop in early November. Today, those calls had a powerful theme:

The circumstances we use to justify our choices and our commitment & attachment to those stories.

There are a couple aspects of a choice: the setup for the choice & the choice itself.

When we desire change, we often focus on changing the choice itself - we want to eat less, move more, reduce sugar, etc.

However, a more effective approach might be to change the setup. More specifically, it is likely more effective to stop committing to the story you use to justify the choice.

Not sure what this looks like? Tune in to today's episode for examples & strategies!

You can have ambitious goals and pure intentions but if you're eating mindlessly, without paying attention, you're going to struggle to achieve them.

How do we transition from randomly grabbing a handful of crackers or a piece of candy without thinking to intentionally fueling our body by conscious choice?

If you can break the habit (and you can) of eating in front of the tv, while you're driving or from random bags & boxes, your physical progress will increase dramatically.

Today we are talking about tactical strategies to eliminate mindless eating & overcoming the obstacles to executing these strategies on a daily basis.

At the risk of extreme vulnerability & personal sharing, I'm taking you through my 2017 year-end review process in the hopes that you'll be intentional about going through your own.

I made the decision to share much more personal stuff than I normally do to show the necessity of both failure & success and how oftentimes, our most significant launch pad is established by what, if not investigated, appears to be a failure.

Most of us aren't taking advantage of a huge tool at our disposal: light.

Light has the ability to increase our metabolism, speed our healing, reduce inflammation, increase energy and much more.

Yet, we take it for granted. We think using light is quackery. It's not.

Try to grow a plant in the dark. Overexpose a plant to light. See what happens.

Light is a super-nutrient, as important to human health as it is to plant health, if not more.

Light can dramatically improve our hormones, energy, metabolism, healing, immune system & more.

Alternatively, if not optimized, light can make us tired, unfocused, depressed and sick.

Today we are learning how light influences us, the different types of light and the differing impact and what simple and complex solutions we can begin to implement.

This could be the most helpful, useful podcast in Primal Potential history. I cannot wait for you to hear it! Today I'm going to introduce you to 7 steps that will help you, starting today, create your happiest life. Your healthiest life.

The other day, on the beach, I read "How To Write Like Tolstoy" and it opens up with a quote I loved:

Peter Carey: I was finally a writer.

Interviewer: What was it that was clicking?

Carey: Age, experience, a simpler form, practice, reading, influence, getting beyond influence.

Today we are talking about how to leverage age, experience, a simpler form, practice, reading, influence & getting beyond influence to create your happiest life.

I'll tell you how I've done it, how I'm continuing to improve in these areas, what tools I use and what implementation looks like in your life.

Before you dive into the episode: a quick reminder that registration for the first Fat Loss Fast Track group of 2018 opens up in just a few weeks. Make sure you're on the wait list!

In today's episode we're talking about how there's a difference between knowing how you want things to work and doing work.

In life & business, many of us struggle to create success because we aren't balanced or consistent in our approach.

Today I'm talking about the book The E-Myth Revisted by Michael Gerber. Though the book is about business, it talks about how there are 3 primary approaches to work and how we struggle when there is an imbalance in them.

While this is certainly true in business ownership, it's just as true, if not more, in life.

The tactician - executes tasks. Gets things done. A to-do list lifer!

The manager - strategist. Pragmatist. Planner.

The entrepeneur - visionary. Dreamer. Big ideas.

We need all three. We can't just go through life crossing tasks off a list. We can't create plans without executing them. We can't have vision without action. We can't succeed without vision.

If you feel like you aren't sure what you want for your life, listen to this episode.

If you feel frustrated that you create plans but don't implement them, listen to this episode.

If you feel like you're so busy doing what has to be done that you have no time to create a life you love, listen to this episode.

Are you too busy working in your life that you aren't ever working on your life?

This is a trap most people fall into. I have! Repeatedly!

They are so busy keeping up and crossing tasks off their lists that they feel they don't have time to fundamentally change or improve their lives.

They're too busy to do the most meaningful work.

I recognized this so profoundly in my work - I have been too busy working in my business that I've felt there is no time or ability to work on my business.

It's a huge mistake.

It's penny wise & pound foolish. It's what we're diving into today! Don't miss it!

Is it possible to enjoy your vacation, enjoy your food and make progress towards your goals at the same time?

Yup, I do believe it is.

As I prepare for a bunch of vacations and family holiday celebrations, I thought I'd share with you some general holiday & vacation strategies that go beyond "eat less, move more and only eat what you love".

In today's episode we're talking about finding the intersection between pleasure and happiness while you travel or celebrate as well as specific strategies for blending progress & celebration.

This past weekend was undeniably one of the best of my life. ASCEND, the annual Primal Potential transformation weekend event, was a massive success.

I was changed. People who attended were changed. Relationships were formed & breakthroughs happened left & right.

I am still processing everything that happened.

In today's episode I'm sharing my 5 major mindset takeaways from the weekend.

For those of you who weren't able to make it, make sure you stay tuned to find out when & where the next transformation weekend will be!

Oooooh boy do I have a great episode for you today! Since I am spending today in Boston with my ASCEND 2017 attendees, I thought I'd let you in on a little of the fun by sharing an audio from ASCEND 2016!

Today's podcast is one of the lectures from ASCEND 2016 on the power of simplicity.

This podcast is about doing less to get more.

It's about embracing a simple change instead of battling for a complex one.

It's about breaking away from the mindset that we need to do 4,000 things to create success and embracing the mindset that we need to just do 4 things and do them 4,000 times.

Enjoy this look inside last year's ASCEND event!

There's a huge difference between choices that bring you pleasure and choices that make you happy. Ultimately, we want to work towards choices that bring both!

In today's episode I'm talking about an interaction with a Fat Loss Fast Track client who told me that binges make her happy.

Since I've had the opportunity to hear her describe those binges, I know it's not true. I know they make her feel frustrated, defeated, out of control and hopeless.

However, the foods she binges on definitely bring her momentary pleasure.

How can we find the intersection of both? It comes not just to what we eat, but also to why, when and how much we eat.

That's what we're diving into in today's episode. Don't miss it!
