Dr. DJ Moran | The 2 Step Process for Facing Any Challenge in Your Life and Coming Out On Top
Play • 1 hr

In today’s episode, we cover Acceptance Commitment Therapy with Dr. DJ Moran. Dr. Moran has a Ph.D. in Psychology, is the founder of Pickslyde Consulting and the MidAmerican Psychological Institute, and has helped thousands of people and hundreds of companies develop the skills for keeping vital commitments. 


Nothing will hit as hard as life will, so what can we do to better handle those hits and come back stronger and better equipped to handle the future while also striving to be the best versions of ourselves?


What to Listen For

  • What is Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) and how can it help you deal with all the challenges and setbacks life throws at us?
  • What is psychological flexibility and why do we all need it so life doesn’t crush us in difficult moments?
  • What are the biggest challenges when it comes to changing our behavior and how can ACT help you overcome them so you can live the life you want?
  • What questions do you want to ask yourself to figure out what changes you need to make and can make so you can be the best version of yourself?
  • What can you do to take control of your life and lead a life based on your values rather than someone else’s values or society’s values?
  • What is the Mindful Action Plan and how can you use it to implement ACT in your life to make the behavioral changes you want?
  • What is counter-conditioning and how can you use it to embrace discomfort and “negative” emotions so you can start leading the life you want?


A full range of human emotions is necessary to lead a fulfilling life, but many of us associate certain emotions with negativity, thus leading us to avoid or suppress feeling those emotions. Consequently, we then avoid the events or activities that lead to us feeling those emotions when those events and activities could be exactly what we need in order to grow as individuals, professionals, friends, lovers, etc. It’s important to be able to accept all of your emotions and develop a comfortable relationship with them and yourself so you can lead the life you want.

The Future of Food, Energy and Space | Tony sits down with 4 visionary business leaders creating solutions to global problems
This past year was a trying one for all of us, and this new year has started off with challenges, too. It would be easy to believe that we as a society are headed in a negative direction, to be fearful of the future – but as Tony says, Fear is simply imagination undirected. What happens when you give direction to your imagination? That’s what we call faith. Faith is not learned, it’s something we are born with. Faith is what fuels us through times of fear and uncertainty. It is more powerful than any emotion, even fear. When all hell is breaking loose, it gives us the ability to find our center, to help ourselves and others to find answers, to find a higher meaning in the midst of our pain and in spite of our fear. And if you’re a leader, you take that certainty and transfer it into others, because human conviction has a viral effect and will spread. Faith is knowing that at our core we're more than anything we will ever face, and we can handle whatever life brings us. We always have and we always will. That is the power of the human race. In this episode, Tony sits down with four extraordinary human beings that are working to solve major global issues, who believe so strongly in their solutions and have so much certainty that it’s almost contagious! These four leaders are not only world changing technology experts, but the founders and CEOs of companies that are bringing the stuff of science-fiction novels to life. And faster than anyone thought possible. They're doing things that will change the lives of billions of people all across the globe. Their ultimate outcome is to increase that quality of life for everyone in existence and for generations to come. In this episode, you will learn about: The future of food. Hear from CEO and co-founder of Upward Farms, Jason Green. (Yes, you read that right – he may indeed have a green thumb!) Upward Farms is a Brooklyn-based indoor aquaponic farm sustainably growing leafy greens and fish with the highest ecological and quality standards. Jason is changing the way we grow food and challenging the environmentally devastating practices we’ve been using for so long. The future of energy. Learn from the genius mind behind the monetization of search words, Bill Gross, whose company, Idealab, is the longest running technology incubator in the history of the world. He’s taking on sustainable energy like no human on earth has done before. The future of space. Hear from Mikhail Kokorich, CEO of Momentus, a space transportation company. Mikhail’s commercial and private space travel is the stuff of every sci-fi lover's dreams. But he’s taking it from beyond the pages of books and movies and making it real with special water propulsion technology. And he’s not just stopping at transportation. The future of business. Tony pulls insights from founder and general partner of Prime Movers Lab, Dakin Sloss. His company is all about seeing the value in people’s visions for starting new companies, and providing the funding and guidance to get them off the ground. But these aren’t your average entrepreneurial startups, these are companies that will change the way we experience life. Most of you know that Tony is incredibly passionate about anything that can increase the quality of people's lives. He’s obsessed with finding answers and solutions. He’s also obsessed with finding entrepreneurs and companies that are on the brink of changing the world and being a part of that in any way he can. For Tony, this usually means more than just investing with them financially, but going on a journey with them, and investing on a soul-level. We hope you enjoy this episode! "I'm obsessed with entrepreneurs and companies that are about to change the world." - Tony Robbins

361: Focusing On Your Finances In 2021 with Robert Gonzalez
What are your financial goals for 2021? Entering into the New Year, we often talk about transforming our health, our relationships, and our careers - but what about our finances? I don’t know about you, but I’ve been guilty of making mistakes when it comes to setting goals for income, savings, and wealth creation. Fortunately, there’s no better time to change than now. Joining me today to talk about this is Robert Gonzalez. Robert is the founder and CEO of MyBooks.PRO, a profitability and bookkeeping company that works with individuals and entrepreneurs. I’ve known Robert for fifteen years, and I was his coach back in 2009 – helping him with leadership and business strategies. Now, our roles have been reversed, as I coach with him – specifically on my finances. In this episode, Robert and I are talking about how to track your fin During today’s conversation, here’s what you’ll learn: * The common mistakes that people make when it comes to their finances. * The difference between using QuickBooks and working with a financial coach. * What makes financial goals not that different from the other goals we set for ourselves each year - and how to hold yourself to them, even if you have variable income. * Tools you can use to create automatic savings and solve your budget problems. * The four stages of financial freedom.
