Here’s My Definition of Success - Leaders Break Free Podcast Episode 138

Nov 30, 2021

What’s the meaning of life? 

Here is what I was shown last week. 

We came here to get lost together. It’s by design. 

We forget we get lost, so we can start to remember again. 

How do you know you are lost? 

Here are a few examples: 

  • You don’t get excited by the same things that excited you yesterday
  • You think if you build a 7-figure business you will be happier than you are now 
  • You want to be liked by others 
  • You like to “feel...

Nov 22, 2021

You know what you should do to grow your business. 


  • Hire a VA (meaning spend cash)
  • Get a coach (meaning spend cash)
  • Invest in advertising (meaning spend cash)

How To Make a Magical 2022 Plan - Leaders Break Free Podcast Episode 136

Nov 17, 2021

Most of us have accomplished something in the past and wound up not all that happy after it was done.

It was one of these things: 

  1. Need for safety (if I  make this much money, I’ll be happy)
  2. Need for approval and respect (If I have that many clients, I’ll be a respectable coach) 
  3. Need for control and certainty (If I can have all my ducks in a row, my 401k, my house, my kids,...

Nov 10, 2021

You want MAGIC? Dissolve your resistance and here is how. 

You said you were going to do gratitude, exercise, do your morning routine, do your manifestation routine. 

Things were going REALLY well in your life... for about 3 weeks.

Why You Should Never Rely on Willpower

Oct 27, 2021


I just had a discussion with someone on my team - helping them manage their work-life balance. 

She finds herself checking her phone in the evening.

Then there’s guilt. We're supposed to be PRESENT with our kids. 

Not on our phone.


So we will discipline ourselves.

We decide - from now on, we'll be a present parent, right?

It lasts.... 2 days.

(speaking from experience)

We go through several iterations to cut our impulses, and eventually, we give up...
