Primal Potential

The Primal Potential Podcast is about transformation, not information. So many of us KNOW what we need to do to achieve our goals but we aren't DOING it. There's a continuous gap between our INTENTIONS and our ACTIONS. Primal Potential is a TOOL to help you create massive change in your life and ENJOY the journey!

You can create success after struggle. Don't let fear of failure or past experiences get in your way! Dozens of people have reached out to me this week expressing doubt in themselves.

They don't want to invest in the 12 Weeks to Transformation only to give up or drift again.

They're questioning whether or not this can be different.

When I ask people what they want or need, they almost always lead with the past, the story and the struggle.

On today's Q&A episode of the podcast we're answering all your questions along that theme: quitting, drifting, fear...all of it!

It's not your plan that's the problem, it's your perspective. You don't need a new plan, you need a new perspective.

Last Thursday, I opened up our Summer 12 Weeks to Transformation to the wait list and we had an awesome live webinar about getting out of your own way.

Prior to the webinar, I sent out a survey to everyone on the list and asked them two questions:

  1. What is keeping you from reaching your goals?
  2. What could I do to help you?

In the webinar, we talked about the most common barriers. We talked about money. We talked about fear. We talked about inconsistency.

Today, I'm sharing part of that free training with you AND I'm opening up registration for our summer 12 Weeks to Transformation!

Are you ready to go to the next level? Are you tired of struggling? Today you're going to hear from one of my 12 Weeks to Transformation clients about how even though she had lost weight, she was still really unhappy. She didn't feel like she was in control of her life.

Instead of settling for the struggle and making herself a victim of it, she USED the struggle and the tools within the 12 Weeks to Transformation to go to the next level.

She's happier than ever. She's lost weight. She feels empowered. As you'll hear her say, she's transformed her life over the last 10 months. She's getting up earlier, she's working out more, she's drinking less, spending less, saving more, losing weight and taking great care of herself while enjoying the journey.

Does your life feel like Groundhog Day? Like every day is pretty much the same as the last and you're just going through the motions, not living the life you want?

I've been there and I'll say this: I refuse to live that way anymore. Life is too short. Our potential - YOUR potential - is just too huge to settle for the same-old life you don't love.

https://primalpotential.com/618/

Today is another listener Q&A episode and Sarah and I are diving into your questions! Here are some of the topics we're tackling:

  • That groundhog day feeling - I tell myself to slay the day but every day feels just like the one before and I can't shake the feeling!
  • How do you differentiate between an addiction and a bad habit?
  • What's the most transformative non-fiction book you've read?
  • At 57 years old, is there still hope?
  • What is the best way to burn fat around my hips, butt and thighs?
  • How does contentment come into play when you have big goals?
  • What is your mantra?

Are you living your life or are you choosing it? Are you just going through the motions or are you being intentional about creating exactly what you want in every area of your life?

Today you're going to hear directly from one of my 12 Weeks to Transformation clients about how she has become militantly on her own side. She's decided to get out of her own way and step into her potential while loving herself and her journey.

She didn't bully herself into transformation. In fact, she was gentle. She was patient. Understanding. And also: drama free and determined.

If you're wondering if you can do it, the answer is YES and today's episode will help!

I am so excited to introduce you to one of my 12 Weeks to Transformation clients. Before we started working together, she shared that she was depressed and feeing lost in life. She wanted to lose weight, yes, but generally, she just wanted to be happier and healthier.

As she shares her story, she'l share the ONE THING she had to change in order to lose weight, take control of her finances and become happier than she's ever been.

If you're ready to learn more about the 12 Weeks to Transformation, don't wait! Now is the time! I would be happy to talk to you about your fears or worries! In fact, Thursday June 20th at 8pm ET I'm going live for a totally free workshop on overcoming past patterns and breaking free from habits that no longer serve you. This workshop is exclusively for people who are on the wait list, so that's absolutely your first step. Please note that I will be on there LIVE so I'll be happy to answer any questions you have!

You know "the grind"? That feeling like you're always working on something, that "effort" is "hard" or you're just not enjoying the journey? It's all hustle, all pursuit, no pleasure?

I've certainly been there. In today's listener Q&A episode, we're answering a bunch of questions including several about how to balance growth & progress with contentment and really enjoying life and the journey of each day.

This is such a critically important topic and I hope you'll take a listen!

https://primalpotential.com/615/

Questions in Today's Growth without the Grind Episode:

  • How do I balance what I want most with what I want now? I kind of just want to chill out and get out of the grind.
  • Are there any foods you never allow yourself to eat? (I reference this episode on Soy Story)
  • What do you think about something like the 21-Day Fix from Beach Body where you eat specific portions from specific-sized containers?
  • I have persistent cravings. I want to get healthier and I want to enjoy the food I'm eating, but how do I fight these cravings?
  • How do you learn to be content with what you have?

Stop complicating things. It's holding you back, slowing you down and overwhelming you.

Today we're talking about practicing simplicity in your thoughts and actions - I promise you it will fast track your progress! Whether you're thinking about changing what you eat, improving your health or fitness, losing weight, starting a business, paying off debt or enhancing your relationship, complexity is the enemy of progress!

In today's episode we'll talk about a new paradigm around progress and I'll help you catch yourself when you're adding unnecessary complexity and help you get to your simple, effective path to progress.


https://primalpotential.com/614

Stop Complicating, Start Simplifying

People complicate things to justify their inaction and support their excuses.

Complexity is the enemy of execution.

Stop adding more when less will do.

"Knowledge is about piling up facts. Wisdom lies in simplification" Martin Fischer

Eliminate the unnecessary so the necessary may speak.

What have you added to the facts?

Identify the essential & eliminate the rest.

Do you struggle with not wanting to miss out? Do vacations, travel or evenings out get you worried about that line between deprivation and over-indulgence?

Travel used to be a total train wreck for me. I was constantly worried about food. I worried about eating too much. I stressed about not enjoying things enough and feeling like I was on the sidelines, deprived.

I really saw it as either/or - either I indulge and feel frustrated with myself, or I don't and I feel like I'm missing out and deprived.

Last week, I took a vacation in Bermuda. I shared a lot of pictures in my Instagram stories and posted daily recaps in our private (free) Primal Potential FB group. Today, I'm sharing the mindsets and strategies I employed to ensure that I didn't ever miss out AND I felt amazing every single day! You never have to feel like you're missing out again AND you don't have to return feeling like you "blew it".

If you want to make big change in your life but you aren't sure how - this is your show. If you're going through the motions & want to break free, tune in!

Today I'm talking with Rob Murgatroyd about his decision to refuse the status quo and his unwillingness to settle for anything less than a life he loved. We're exploring how he walked about from a successful chiropractic practice and embraced uncertainty so he could create the life of his dreams instead of settling for a routine he was no longer enjoying.

Rob is so full of powerful truths and empowering mindsets. He serves up some tough love, reminding us that we can certainly continue to tell the story of why we can't do something but we're also free to stop telling that story and start to focus on how and why we can.

https://primalpotential.com/611/

Want to connect with Rob? Check out his Work Hard Play Hard mastermind here.

Tips for Creating Big Change

Ask yourself these questions: 

What would it look like if this was easy?

What would it look like if this was fun?

What would it look like if this was elegant?

Learn more about morning pages for starting the day with intention & opportunity.

One of Rob's tools for creating big change in his life is to use the mantra "I belong here". While I love that mantra and think it's an awesome tool for stepping up and creating confidence, what I love most is what he said next. He said that he says it over and over (for weeks and months) "until it starts to feel real..." That's the ticket. We create these new stories and we repeat them until they feel real. Whether the story is, "I make great choices" or "I am a creative energetic problem solver" or "I belong here" - you repeat it and repeat it until it starts to feel real. (Tune in for more on this)
