I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Arielle Ford, Debbie Ford’s sister about a hidden manuscript that Debbie Ford has written just prior to her death from a long bout with cancer.  The story about how this manuscript and how it was found, is just as interesting as the content of the book.  I encourage you to listen carefully to the sequence of spiritual events that occured to Arielle that allowed this book to come about and be published, a fascinating sequence of events being facilitated from her sister and a medium that spoke to her from the otherside.

So, now about “Your Holiness“.   Debbie Ford wrote this book in full disclosure of her life and all of her dark shadows.  As many of you know she fought drug addiction for years and was successful in overcoming the addiction.  As Debbie writes in “Your Holiness” “what you are seeking at the deepest level exist inside you, in the quietude of your inner world, in the privacy of your sweet heart. So now it’s your responsibility, your holy responsibility, to encode your consciousness with thoughts, feelings, and images that will support you in creating the perfect internal environment to cultivate a deep and intimate relationship with the one you call God.”

Your Holiness” is filled with wonderful poems and allows the reader to make a deep connection to their higher power.  It allows us to remember the importance of “God” in our life, and to live, love, learn and let go.

If you are interested in elevating to a new level of spiritual understanding, then please read “Your Holiness“.  You can learn more about Debbie Ford by going to the website for the Ford Institute or to the book website by clicking here.

I hope you enjoy this great interview with Debbie’s sister Arielle Ford.

 

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing a young new author and coach by the name of Zander Fryer.  Zander and several other authors co-authored a book with Jack Canfield entitled ” Mastering the Art of Success“.

In my interview with Zander, I get the opportunity to explore the journey and path that Zander took to become a top-notch coach as well as learn about his personal passion for helping his clients find and live their purpose.  Early in Zanders career, he made some mistakes and those mistakes lead him down a path to become one of the top systems architects at a major software company.  Then one day one of his mentors ask Zander a question that changed his life forever.  “What would you do if you could not fail?”  Zander had a passion for leading which came from his experience in being in the ROTC, and with that passion, he developed his own coaching organization.

Zander has studied under the best–Jack Canfield and advocates to his clients to find their joy in life and by knowing that you will live a life filled with more abundance, happiness, and fulfillment.  Zander has a great exercise to help someone find their life purpose.  He asks you to sit quietly and ask yourself “What is your life purpose?” then write what comes up.  Then he asks you to ask “What is your true-life purpose?” and repeat this about three times.   The purpose of doing this exercise three times that you will most likely get to the true inner purpose and it will help you refine your purpose.

I have interviewed Don Green several times before for previous books that the Napoleon Hill Foundation has released.  In my many years of interviewing I have never found a more genuine and wonderful soul than Don Green the executive director of the foundation.

In this interview, we discuss a newly released book entitled ” How to Own Your Own Mind” by Napoleon Hill.  The content of this book was locked in a vault since 1941 and has never been released before to the general public.

There three major points that this book covers, something called creative vision, organized thought and controlled attention.  This makes up the entire content of “How to Own Your Own Mind” but each section goes into great depth on how to cultivate these characteristics.

In Hill’s interview with Andrew Carnegie, Carnegie states “that creative vision is not just another name of imagination.  It is the ability to recognize opportunities and take action to benefit from them”  Creative vision goes beyond imagination, it is imagination in action.

The second section of this book is about organized thought. Thoughts are things and it is significant that it is one of the few things an individual may control completely.  The key is to learn how to organize and direct your thought toward definite ends.  I speak with Don in our interview about the power of thought and how Hill and Carnegie had mastered the power of organized thought.

The third section is about something Hill refers to as “controlled attention”.  Controlled attention is “mental dynamite” and it is capable of blasting the cause of self-imposed limitations, and giving one the means by which he or she may take charge of his or her own life. Andrew Carnegie included this principle of controlled attention as one of the principles of individual achievement, but even the great steel master failed to associate this principle with the means by which civilization may be advanced.

If you want to read a great book on how to control your mind, then “How to Own Your Own Mind” is the one you want to read.  I encourage you to listen to this interview with Don Green the executive director of Napoleon Hill Foundation and go to the Napoleon Hill Foundation by clicking here for more information.

Enjoy this uplifting interview with Don Green.

 

I recently conducted an interview with author Chris Barez Brown about his book entitled ” Wake-Up“–Podcast # 645.  I had such a great experience and interview with Chris that I invited him back to speak about his new book entitled “Shine, How To Survive And Thrive At Work“.

We all spend a lot of time at our work, so having fun and enjoying our work is so important to remain engaged.  In my interview with Chris, we discuss the many great ideas about how to keep our work fun and stay engaged.

Just one of the ideas includes a concept he calls “Who’s Elvis Around Here?” This is really a great idea, and is the person who stands out in your business, the one that breaks the rules, and makes things happen within the organization.  Is that you our are you just standing by waiting, or afraid to speak up?  Don’t stand on the sidelines waiting, get engaged and speak up with your good ideas to propel the business forward.

Chris states that our minds are highly efficient killing machines.  They are trained from an early age to destroy anything that doesn’t fit our model of the world. This means that analytical, logical minds dominate our working lives–what are you doing to get off or autopilot and tap into your abundant thinking brain which breaks the cycle of helping us to consider futures that are not based on past experience?

Shine, How to Survive and Thrive at Work is a book loaded with great ideas to help you thrive in the workplace.  It is an easy read and should be the companion to anyone wanting to make a difference at work.

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Alan Weiss the co-author with Marshall Goldsmith of a new book entitled “Lifestorming-Creating Meaning and Achievement in Your Career and Life“.  This is a practical handbook for becoming the person you want to be.  You will discover what it takes to redesign your life, friends, behaviors, and goals in order to move closer to your goals.

Alan and I discuss the evolutionary journey, and a very important question: To what extent is your journey one of internal control, and to what extent one of external control?  I believe this concept alone is one of the most important elements that one must master if they are going to master their life.  As Alan states are you taking a “random walk” through life, or do you have high control and are one of those people that creates your world, or are you mutually creating your world.  No matter your purview of your world, it would be best to have high control if you want to make something of yourself.

If you want to change behavior, Alan states that most studies have found that it’s very difficult to merely change poor behavior.  It’s much more effective to substitute a more positive behavior. Change for its own sake makes little sense.  The key is to determine the salutary result that makes the change worthwhile.

I hope you enjoy the lively and engaging dialogue with Alan Weiss the co-author of “Lifestorming-Creating Meaning and Achievement in Your Career and Life“.  If you want to learn more about the book you can click here to be directed to the book website page.  If you want to learn more about Alan Weiss please click here or Marshall Goldsmith click here.
