Listener Favorites: Tom Bilyeu | Transforming Human Behavior Through Nutrition
"Humans are emotional creatures. We all have the chance right now today to decide, and that word is so important, to decide to live a beautiful life, meaning no matter what’s going on. Don’t take my word for it. Victor Frankl, a holocaust survivor, this is all him, this is literally the message of his book Man’s Search for Meaning. When you decide to find something beautiful right now in the moment and this is somebody saying it from the perspective being in Auschwitz. When you can find purpose in what you’re going through, when you can find purpose in your suffering and you know why you’re doing this, then you really can have a fulfilling life regardless of the circumstances. If we all have to make that choice, we have to decide to live a beautiful life, we’re going do something incredible, then all of a sudden when you know what you’re trying to accomplish, when you have a specific vision for what you’re trying to make of this world, why it’s beautiful to you, and why it’s worth all the fight, all of a sudden you become incredibly resourceful, and that purpose, having a sense of significance and meaning in your life, for whatever reason we’re hardwired to find real fulfillment in that." - Tom Bilyeu Tom Bilyeu is Co-founder and president of Quest Nutrition, and guides the company's culture of passion and transformation.

David Meltzer | How to Buy Happiness by Shopping for the RIGHT Things
In today’s episode, we cover the myth about success with David Meltzer. David is the Co-founder of Sports 1 Marketing and formerly served as CEO of the renowned Leigh Steinberg Sports & Entertainment agency, which was the inspiration for the movie Jerry Maguire.   While “money can’t buy happiness” is a phrase most people in today’s world are familiar with, many of us still chase after money as if it will buy us happiness - so what is it about this truth we can’t seem to let go of and what can you do every day to lead a more fulfilling life without money?   What to Listen For What is the biggest myth about success?  What does it mean to “shop for the right things” and why is that phrase so important when you start attaining financial success? How do you start practicing gratitude when you feel like you have nothing to be grateful for? What are the 3 votes you make each day that influence whether or not you can live a successful, fulfilling life? What 3 concepts can you internalize that will give you motivation on a daily basis? What 5 daily practices can you start implementing today to help you achieve your dreams?   We grow up being told that money doesn’t buy happiness and yet we are surrounded and bombarded with messages about the crap we need to buy in order to make our lives better (aka to make us happier). And many of us are raised in a culture where we expect to give/receive material gifts every year (Christmas, birthdays, etc) because they’ll bring us joy (aka happiness). We have to be able to recognize these signals and then we must be willing to take steps to live outside of them - aware of them, but dismissive of how silly they are.   A Word From Our Sponsors Share your vulnerabilities, victories, and questions in our 17,000-member private Facebook group at theartofcharm.com/challenge.
