How to Make a Change
Play • 40 min

Have you ever seen someone staring back in the mirror that you didn’t like? 

We all experience “mirror moments” -- where we see ourselves and the paths we’re headed down clearly. In these moments, we can decide to continue the course or make a change. Sometimes we are seeking big changes -- like choosing to pursue a completely new career or end a relationship. Sometimes we’re vying for simpler -- like just choosing to meditate for five minutes a day or get dressed in the mornings.

No matter how big or small the change you want to make is, it can be tough to get yourself to the breaking point -- where you actually commit… fully. 

So, today, we called on the decorated, plant-powered endurance athlete Rich Roll for some inspiration. He shares with us some of his most intense transformational moments -- from when he first decided to get sober to when he began running endurance races. His repeated transformation proves that you are never too old or too late to change. And that there is always another level to the change you can make.

Thomas Dajer, also known as Tommy, TD, and Yes Theory’s lead editor shares his story of personal transformation as well -- from dropping out of college to now starting to host episodes on the Yes Theory channel. 

And Ryan Holiday, author of so many of the Yes Theory team’s favorite books, stops by to talk about the pitfalls of ego -- the force that often gets in the way of trying to make a significant change. He colors in the full picture, and shows us that often the battle of seeking change is much more internal than external.

A LETTER FROM A HEALTHY HAPPY TO A TROUBLED SAD ME
THIS EPISODE IS ABOUT LIFE AND DEATH, LOSS AND PAIN From time to time, I come up with an episode that is not meant to be for everyone. This one might be one of them. Ladies and gentlemen, this episode is about life and death, including loss and pain. And still, I love this episode.When I started to write it, a thousand words just flew out of my fingers in no time, but for many words, the tears blurred my view. It's about a letter I shall receive when I lose someone I love, or if I become ill or just before my own death. It's the letter from my healthy, happy me to my troubled me. I am aware, that this episode touches ME, because it is about MY life. Why do I publish it? Because you can take this and turn it into yours, by also writing such a letter. At the end of this episode, I will tell you why I think you should do this. A little outtake: "A few words before I read the letter to you: With the pandemic, death and loss come closer, and we struggle. I notice many people lose hope. But not me. And maybe this is what I have to do. Spread a spirit about life, love, compassion, empathy and growth, even in dark times.  I need to hear those voices who spread hope and optimism and if I can be such a voice for you - I'm more than happy to do so. I asked one of my best friends if I should wait to publish this episode and she said: "Are you crazy! There is no good or bad timing for this topic. It can't be that it still is a taboo to talk about loss, death and illnesses. It's going to happen to everyone, and we can't ignore these facts. It will hurt yes. But the sooner we confront ourselves with the difficult moments in life - the more thoughtful we become about them and that's what's missing."" My dear ones out there, we have a winner for a free call, which I announce in the end of this episode. I can't wait to talk to you! Take care! Bye, anna The Member's Club CHECK IT OUT Episode notes:It's all about a letter that helps me to deal with death, loss and pain.  Next zoom speech for Members: 18th (EN) and 19th (DE) of January. All about routines and rituals to stay mentally fit and to achieve your goal.
