Did you ever feel there’s a leader inside of you, someone destined for greatness, or at least much more than the mundane or mediocrity, just dying to come out!

Well if this sounds even remotely like you, then do we have the show for you!

Today we’ll be speaking with a mentor of mine, although he doesn’t know it yet. His name is Robin Sharma, he’s a best-selling author, and one of premier thinkers when it comes to leadership in business and in life. His book, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, was the catalyst for many of the great life-changes I made over a decade ago, that helped me become a best-selling author, a championship athlete, a leading coach and instilled many of the habits that have helped make me the success I am today.

And to me, his inspiring new book, The Leader Who Has No Title, takes things even further!

Today we’ll talk about flipping the leadership switch and turning on the inner-potential inside each and every one of us to bring out the brilliance we all have to offer, no matter our past, our situation, our job, finances, lot in life or anything else. We’ll talk about bringing out the world-class leader, visionary, and human being that’s inside of each and every one of us.

That plus THE BIW< SEW, FMOB, IMAGE and why being uncomfortable or dangling over a cliff, just may be the greatest thing in the world.

Nov 27, 2015

Today we have a very simple, short, positivity meditation, to help you rewire your mind and transform your day. You can do this anytime of the day, but I recommend it first thing in the morning, and first thing after you get in the office at work. You can also do this first thing after you come home from work, or any time of the day!

This meditation goes great with today’s guest Michelle Gielan, former CBS News Anchor, Positivity Researcher and a Partner on a Positivity Program with Oprah.

To hear Michelle’s interview or more meditations from me, or our guests, visit our Inspire Nation Show or inspirenationshow.com.

They say gratitude and fear, or for that matter gratitude and unhappiness, cannot co-exist together, it’s called cognitive dissonance, a fancy way to say you can’t love and hate at the same time.

So we’re going to pump up your cognitive dissonace to push aware fear, dis-ease, anxiety, unhappiness, or any other negative emotions and quickly replace them with positive ones.

In essence, we’re going to scan our current environment, our lives at this very time and place, and find at least ten things to be grateful for in the present. For instance, I might say I’m grateful for being healthy today. That’s perfect. Or I’m grateful for my job today. Perfect too. But not, I’m grateful for the promotion I got last year. Nope. You want it to be something that’s occurring in this present moment or that’s just taken place…

So to help people get through this crazy day, we have a super-simple and relaxing GROUNDING meditation.

We send love. We send light. And many many blessings your way. Namaste!

Okay, you can do this meditation, sitting, standing, or laying down, though I prefer sitting for this one.

I want to take you to a very special place, either you own special place, or one of mine. We’re going to keep it really simple. Is there a tree in your home town, or where you’re at, perhaps at a local park, or in your yard, where you like to sit down, relax, and catch your breath for a minute or two?

Maybe it’s a tree from your schoolyard in childhood, or in college, or one you see people hanging at while walking on your way to work.

For me, there’s a local tree in a park nearby. I call it the tree spirit, because maybe thirty years ago, someone tacked two eyes and a nose on the tree with some nails. So it looks like a wise old elf, has grown right out of the tree.

I visit it every chance I can, sit under the tree spirit, and just breathe.

There’s so much wisdom in the tree. So much patience. So much strength. And so much grounding force.

Okay, do you have a favorite tree in mind.

So what I’d like you to do is go to that tree now in your minds eye.

Sit under it, or lay under it. Feel the ground beneath you, maybe the bark against your back. Put your hands in your lap, or better still, put your hands directly on the earth, and breathe in, nice, and slow and deep, through the nose...

Nov 24, 2015

Today we have a very short, sweet, and incredibly relaxing meditation. This is one I use frequently in my life, for I’m often stuck up late at night in edits, making meditations, and getting things uploaded. This means I need to get into the most relaxed, rested place I can to get the most quality rest out of my sleep, and any down time I have. And that’s Why I Came up with the Rest and Relax Meditation.

It’s super simple, you can do it anytime of the day, and I like it best, while in bed before dozing off, and first thing in the morning to set the tone for the day.

If you like this meditation please do us a favor, and Rate and Review our show on iTunes. It’s the #1 to show your love, and support the show. And most importantly, it helps others to find the show…which earns you HUGE great karma points!

To hear more meditations from me, or our guests, visit our Inspire Nation Show, or InspireNationShow.com.

Okay, this is one of those very simple, yet super powerful meditations. I’ve been using it quite frequently lately, and after recording, editing, and uploading it here tonight, I’ll be using it myself as I’m going to sleep. This one’s great for programming body, mind and soul for a great night’s rest, or for a soothing morning, even if you’re a bit short on sleep. And it’s fantastic for calming the nervous system, any time of the day.

I think this is the simplest meditation I’ve shared so far on Inspire Nation.

You’ll simply breathe nice, slow, and deep, down to the belly, in and out through the nose, while repeating the simplest of mantra’s, out loud, or in your head. For myself, last night for example. I practiced this in my head until I feel asleep, and then I awoke way too early for a long day ahead, I was still repeating the mantra, and I felt great, and refreshed. That’s the power of the word, the power of meditation, and the power of a fantastic mantra….oh yeah, it’s also, quite literally the power of love.

And so, as you’re breathing deep, silently or out loud, I want you to repeat, relax….love. Relax…love.Relax Love.

So I’ll do this with you for a few short minutes, but of course, feel free to continue as long as you’d like.

I send love. I send light. And many, many blessings your way. Namaste.

Hi Everyone, Jessica Lee here, your co-host on Inspire Nation!

If you’ve ever needed more courage or determination to get through the tough stuff, start a new venture, or simply to let your inner spirit shine, then do we have the show for you.

Today I’ll be interviewing my co-host, loving husband and courageous Inspire Nation Leader for ou our show.

If you caught last weeks show you heard us talk a bit about us starting Inspire Nation. Well today we’re going to dive more into the nitty-gritty side of things. How you keep going when the going’s tough. How to know when to say when, and how in the world you can summon the courage to climb your own Everest, literally or figuratively.

That, plus the importance of signs, and synchronicities, and knowing when to get out of your own way!

Show Notes and Questions:

  1. Michael have you always been courageous?
  2. What’s the importance of going after things and sticking with them?
  3. Learning to trust your own inner voice or inner belief rather than what others teach you.
  4. Learning that other people’s opinions are not the opinions that mattered
  5. How to move past your internal wiring or a lack of self-confidence
  6. Childhood Theme: Unwilling to Believe that I couldn’t.
  7. What is the definition of Courage?
  8. Why Yoda does NOT have all the answers.
  9. Why trying is much harder than doing.
  10. Why it’s so important to let others know what you’re going to do.
  11. Having the faith to step into the ambiguity
  12. Anita Moorjani – Dying to Be Me – Allowance Over Law of Attraction
  13. The Secret and taking steps into the unknown
  14. Why it’s so important to opening up to possibilities
  15. Why you should never say “let’s blow things out.”
  16. Derek Rydall – be open to possibilities that are greater than you could ever have imagined.
  17. Why pushing ahead at all costs (being the locomotive) is NOT being courageous, but may just be insanity.
  18. Why other people’s opinions are none of your business
  19. Why telling your parents may not be the best idea!
  20. Why the answers come from sudden insights, rather than intellect.
  21. How to follow your heart, but listen to your mind!!! Particularly when it comes to crossing the road.
  1. Would you say courage is something you’re born with, like a talent, or can we develop it?
    1. It’s like a muscle the more you use it, the stronger it gets!
      1. It’s the small steps toward confidence, trying things out, doing, and achieving in little ways that help you develop courage.
      2. So in many ways it’s the small steps that are most important!
    2. What do you mean by have both feet in or being fully committed?
      1. Courage only comes when we’re firmly committed to outcome
      2. Example? one foot in – Barefoot Walking Book Tour – never had full belief in it if I was honest with myself. Wanted it to work. Head was in on the game, but gut was doing flip-flops. So never fully set myself up for success.
      3. How is Inspire Nation Different?
        1. Full in 100%
      4. Where does passion come into play with this?
        1. Can you give an example where you need passion to keep you going?
      5. Why is passion so important?
        1. Example of passion helping you through?
        2. What’s the difference between extrinsic and intrinsic goals.
          1. Wanting a car, accolades, or even money in the bank isn’t true passion, that’s an extrinsic goal, or something outside of yourself. When you’re exhausted in the middle of the night, it’s never about the toys.
          2. But how it makes you feel, or how it’d make you feel to take care of your family, or make your heart sing…the emotions it brings out, that’s more of an intrinsic reason and that can get you through your darkest hours.
        3. Where does passion come from?
          1. Heart in alignment with highest power
            1. Alignment – alignment with your highest potential, using your talents and gifts, alignment with God, with positivity, with positive emotions, with your higher self, with what you hear in your quietest moments.
          2. Being in the flow and using your gifts

        5. Do you need skills to follow your passion?
          1. Skills can be learned, if willing to put in the time…again comes back to passion.

            2. Prayer
  • Gratitude
  1. Affirmations
  1. How do you know when to say when?
    1. When you’re pushing through not out of courage, but out of fear…courage and fear are very distinct…one’s head, one’s heart. Heart knows if what you’re doing is right nor not, but the head, that’ll keep us pushing through, even into a brick wall.

  3. What does it mean to let go, and why is it so important for courage?
  4. How does love play a role in courage

  8. How important are affirmations or mantras?
    1. Can you give an example?
  9. In the intro you mentioned signs and synchronicities, how does that fit into the equation (or how do signs and synchronicities give you courage???)
  10. Any last Thoughts?
  11. Don’t listen to others,
  12. Be true to yourself, no matter what, that’s where the real courage comes from.
  13. Don’t take things too seriously,
  14. BREATHE – WHEN IN DOUBT JUST BREATHE

This is a great meditation to do before you walk, run, or as a reset-button in the middle of the day. It’s a great way to get back into your body, to feel how you’re doing, and to shut off a racing monkey-mind. It helps you become more present, more aware of your thoughts, and to start to strengthen your mental muscles to control the incessant chatter. You’ll become more aware of thoughts, and better able to let them go.

And focusing on the breath, you’ll feel more energy and more at peace.

Relax as you learn to connect with your breath as you quiet your mind. You’ll feel greater energy, more at peace, and more centered in your body.

Namaste,

Today we have an exceptionally simple yet all-powerful meditation designed to help you relax and bring more love into your life. This meditation goes great with today’s guest, Dr. Sue Johnson, one of the world’s leading authorities on love, romance, and happy couples.

You can do this meditation anytime of the day, and I recommend doing it as much as you possibly can. This has been a very powerful healing meditation and mantra in my life, particularly whenever the going has been tough. For I haven’t always been the positive guy you see here, and I needed a lot of rewiring work myself.
And this meditation, is all about positive rewiring!

If you like this meditation, please do us a HUGE favor, and share your love, by rating and reviewing our show on iTunes. It’s the #1 way to help us, and to help more people to find the show. Thank YOU so much.

And to listen to Dr. Sue Johnson’s interview, or more meditations by me or our guests, visit our inspire nation show or InspireNationShow.com.

I send love. I send light. And many, many blessings your way. Namaste.

Okay, this is perhaps the simplest meditation I’ll be leading so far, but it’s also quite likely the most powerful. For this is the one where it all begins. To bring more love into our lives, we need to love ourselves more first.

This requires burning new messages into our minds, or pressing new grooves into the record that plays over and over again in our heads.

Unless you’ve ascended, chances are there are still some negative messages rolling around like marbles. I know for myself, I had a TON of them, and like you still have some to work on myself.

But where it all begins is self love. When we truly love ourselves, we can love another, we attract more love into our lives, and attract incredible positive experiences and outcomes.

It all comes from the love.

So today we’ll be burning a new self-love record.

We’ll be repeating a very simple self-love mantra over and over again.

Now you don’t need to believe what you’re saying, in order for positive benefits to take place.

Let me repeat that. You don’t have to believe it. Just keep repeating the mantra. It’ll raise your energy levels, raise your vibrations, and over time, you can’t help but begin to believe it!

I recommend doing this every day for at least a month. Commit to it for yourself. Wake up, roll over, and practice 3 to 5 minutes of this I Love Myself Meditation.

So how do you do it? Well, I’ll have you repeat along with me, the simple words I Love Myself. At the same time, you’ll breath nice and slow as your right hand massages your chest in a circular motion clockwise (up inside, down outside) on your chest, or tapping your chest right above the heart with your first and second finger. It’ super-simple, looks pretty silly, and amazingly effective. I swear by it, and it’s dramatically helped me rewrite some toxic wiring in my mind...

You can do this meditation anytime of the day, and virtually anywhere, it helps promote greater concentration, boosts your energy levels, and at the same quiets the mind.

Alright, this is a very simple yet powerful meditation. I’ve been doing pranayama breathing exercises for years with dramatic results for my health, and quieting my mind.

For this exercise, you’ll simply follow along with my count. To summarize, you’ll breath in for a count of four, hold for a count of seven, and release for a count of 8. Then you’ll repeat. Like I said, it’s super, super simple. Yet surprisingly effective...

Today we have a very simple, relaxing mindfulness meditation to help you clear your mind and drop your thoughts.

You can do this meditation almost any time of the day and for any length of time.

You can do it at your desk, walking, laying down, almost anything, though I wouldn’t recommend doing it while driving or operating heavy machinery.

This meditation goes well with today’s guest, Beth Banning, talking about connecting to your higher self or your inner wisdom.

To check out her interview, or hear more meditations from me or our guests, visit our inspire nation show or inspirenationshow.com.

And if you like this meditation, please do us a mondo-big favor and please rate and review our show on iTunes. It’s the #1 way to show your support and help people to find the show. Thank you so much!

I send love. I send light. And many, many blessings your way.

This is a super-simple four count meditation. It doesn’t get much simpler than this.

Of course, in its simplicity lies it’s beauty.

All you’re going to do is inhale for a count of four, hold for a count of four, exhale for a count of four, and hold for a count of four.

Of course, I always want you to inhale in and out through the nose, which has great health benefits, and dramatically helps relax the body.

Rather than trying to quiet the mind, try to just keep focusing on the breath. If a thought comes up, and it will, notice you’re thinking, then go right back to your breath. It’s like you’re out on a date, someone may stop by to say hi, but you’ve got you’re date, so you probably won’t invite them to the table.

Now I don’t want you to be rude, but if a thought comes up, you don’t have to it to the table either, simply go back to your date, which in this case is your breath.

Alright, are you ready to begin? I’ll give you the count, and we’ll just go for a few short minutes. Of course, feel free to continue after I stop, for as long as you’d like. The more you do this, the easier it gets, the more you’re pressing new grooves into the record of your mind, and the more relaxed, and resilient your mind becomes...

Today we have a very relaxation guided meditation to take you on a beautiful Hawaiian sea canoe adventure.

My wife Jessica and I lived in Hawaii for the last few years, and this was a treasured event I would do each Saturday morning. It was pure bliss, and a LOT of sweat.

Today you’ll get all the bliss, but not of the sweat!

If you like this meditation, please do us a HUGE favor and rate and review our show. It’s the #1 way to show your love AND help others to find the show!

To check out more meditations from me, or our guests, visit our Inspire Nation Show, or InspireNationShow.com.

I send love. I send light. And many, many blessings your way. Namaste.

Okay, for this meditation you can either be sitting comfortable, or laying down on your back. It’s very relaxing so we don’t want you driving, operating heavy machinery, or even a bicycle while doing this one.

Before you begin, in your mind’s eye, I’d like you to head over to the supplies shack. It’s just past the coconut tree, and pick out your favorite paddle. The t-shaped handle should be about chest high, when the paddle is touching the ground…
