I had the pleasure of meeting, then conducting this interview with author and sport agent David Meltzer.  His new book entitled ” Connected to Goodness” is about David’s personal journey, with life lessons that will inspire, inform and get the reader to take a new look at how they view the world.

Most people would assume that a sport agent needs to be tough and a ruthless negotiator.  David Meltzer is calm, peaceful, compassionate, empathic and a totally understanding person, and these qualities  he learned throughout life have shape him into a person who is an amazingly successful as a businessman and sport agent.

David lives by seven interconnected principles and four key elements of: clarity, balance, focus, confidence.  David also understands the importance of defining and living your purpose while examining your values, and aligning them with your purpose.  He also knows that having a foundation in life is imperative.

“Everything in life, from the construction of a building to a relationship, requires a solid foundation , or it will crumble. Values provide that foundation.  No matter what you attract in your life, identify, prioritize, and utilize your own values to build the foundation that will best provide clarity, balance and focus with confidence.

I encourage you listen to David Meltzer the author of “Connected to Goodness” while we learn from a master who has taken the time to understand the complex workings of the human mind, and has mastered his thoughts,  resulting in phenomenal success both personally and professionally.

My good friend Guy Finely has released a wonderful book entitled ” The Secret to Your Immortal Self“.  I recently had the opportunity to have a very deep conversation with Guy about the book, and the key lessons that he teaches throughout the book.  One thing you alway know for certain is that when I interview Guy  you are in for a very deep exploration about your spiritual beliefs which will test your intellect and get you to search for you soul.

What I appreciate about “The Secret to Your Immortal Self” is that each of the lessons are just a few pages, and they explore the timeless wisdom of the universe and how to apply and live it.  As Guy states ” In one sense, the interior journey that leads to the immortal Self is demanding and difficult, even seemingly impossible at times; yet as paradoxical as it seems, there is nothing intrinsically hard about rising above ourselves and slipping into the stream of our own celestial possibilities.”

The Secret to Your Immortal Self is a book that will stimulate your thought while getting you to question some of your current beliefs.  I encourage you to listen to this amazing interview with Guy Finley as we explore the depths of our immortal self.

I happen to listen to National Public Radio a lot, and I was listening to an interview with Chris Farrell about his new book entitled “Unretirement: How Baby Boomers Are Changing The Way We Think About Work, Community, and the Good Life.”  I was so intrigued that I reached out to Chris and he granted me an interview.

You will find that Chris does not buy into the gloom and doom that most economists believe, the sky is falling– Social Security is going to fail and there’s not enough money.  Chris is quite the contrarian and believes that if we the retirees shift our thinking about retirement, including our mindset or  better yet why retire at all if you are healthy and can still make a contribution to society.

You must understand that this is a controversial topic these days, and it is not because their is a conspiracy to convince the baby boomers to take their retirements at age 70 because the government can’t afford the early retirees and payouts, it is because so many baby boomers are living longer are healthier and want to make a contribution to the world.   We are living longer are more active and have much to contribute to society, communities, organizations–so why not continue to make a difference and work.

Chris makes interesting observation from Peter Drucker in “Unretirement”, that every once in a while society crosses a major divide, and that we are crossing the divide now.  We are making the difficult transition toward a different vision of the elder years.  This vision includes, people working longer, making more contributions to society, working in contract jobs, becoming entrepreneurs and volunteers.  Chris’s book is the roadmap for workers of all ages who want to adapt from the work-then-retire mindset.

I hope you enjoy my interview with Chris Farrell about “Unretirement” If you want to learn more you can go to Chris’s website by clicking here.

 

I recently was invited to a presentation by Ken Blanchard and his co-author Morton Shaevitz about a new book entitled ” Refire Don’t Retire: Make the Rest of your Life the Best of Your Life.”  I was certainly inspired by what Ken and Mort has to say about aging and how we need to shift our paradigm about retirement.

The reality is that baby boomers are living longer and are healthier than previous generations.  It is not uncommon to see baby boomers working into their 70’s and 80’s with more zest and vitality for what they are doing.  Some are required to work because their finances would not allow them to retire, but many are working for the love of contribution to society and want to stay active.

In Ken and Mort’s new bookRefire Don’t Retire” they create a parable and a very compelling story for the reader.  You are taken on a journey of an aging husband and wife who are lucky enough to have a wake up call, and shift their whole perspective about how they see the world.  They have a spiritual awakening along with a realization about their emotional, intellectual and physical well being that gets them engaged with zest, zeal and passion for life again.

If you are considering retirement, or are in retirement you really need to read and understand that their are so many other options.  What contributions can you make to society, how do you want to spend the rest of your life?  These are important questions, let’s face it you can only workout or play golf so much.

Please listen to this very compelling interview with Ken Blanchard and Morton Shaevitz.  You can also learn more about their book by clicking here to be directed to the website for the book.  Enjoy this wonderful interview!!!!

 

I happen to be watching the documentary ” Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead #2″ by Joe Cross.  If you have not seen this documentary it is certainly worth watching, and learning about the life changing steps that Joe Cross took to get himself and thousands of others back to health and vitality.

As a result of watching Joe’s documentary I payed particular attention to an interview he conducted with Brian Wansink from Cornell’s Food and Brand Lab.  I was fascinated by how Brain was focused on how the change in our surroundings and environment can have a significant impact on our health and nutrition, so I reached out to him to do an interview for Inside Personal Growth.

In this interview with Brian Wansink, Ph.D. you will learn how simply it is to reconstruct and rethink your environments for success in your food consumption. Brian says that the answer isn’t to tell people what to do: it is to set up their living environments so that they will naturally lose weight.   He says we need to work with human nature not against it, and that willpower is a very challenging way to shift our eating patterns for success, and he proves it in his new book “Slim By Design“.

During our dialogue together we discuss some very simple techniques that you can employ in you home, the restaurants you eat in, your grocery store, your workplace and at your children’s school.   You will learn how to create a mindless solution for your eating habits, that will work and allow you to shed the unwanted pounds.   This is not to state that you can only change your environment for success, you still need to exercise and learn what foods are healthy for you, but this factor is a key to a healthy lifestyle  change in what you eat and how much weight you might be able to lose.

I hope you enjoy this upbeat and lively interview with a fascinating man and scientist, Brian Wansink, Ph.D. If you want to learn more about “Slim By Design” or his other books please click here to be directed to his website.

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Jack Canfield about his newly revised and updated edition ” The Principles of Success 10th Anniversary Edition”.   In our interview we had the opportunity to discuss the revision in the 10th anniversary edition.  As Jack mentions the edition of “The Principles of Success” now includes new success stories, teachings and a entire section of the book dedicated to digital media, branding and important topics of how to grow in our digitally connected world.

My interview with Jack is filled with stories and a focus on the fundamental principles of success which include, “Knowing What you Want”,  “Taking 100% Responsibility for your Life”, Unleashing the Power of Goal Setting”.  In total the book outlines 67 success principles and provide the reader with access to powerful tools through Jack’s website.

As we all start off our year, and now almost through the first quarter if we are interested in changing patterns, behaviors and beliefs that don’t service us we would all gain tremendous insight and guidance from reading and applying “The Principles of Success“.

I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Derek Rydall the author of a new book entitled ” Emergence: Steven Steps for Radical Life Change.  

In my interview with Derek we discussed his unique approach to the end of self-improvement.  As Derek discussed with me, his premise is that if we look at ourselves as being whole and complete just the way we are, we don’t need to change anything.  I actually really like his approach, because it is correct.  Each and every soul that is incarnate on this planet is whole and complete, and if we were to approach life from this perspective we would not come from lack, limitation and fear.  Our ego does a really good job of instilling within us  the feelings of lack, limitation and negative self talk.

Derek uses the symbolism of the “oak tree and the acorn” and calls it the acorn principle.  Because many of us hold a belief that our fate is determined by external conditions and that things we need are “out there”–the reverse of how life really works-we constantly struggle against the nature order of the universe.

The acorn principle allows you to understand your true nature, and how you were designed to grow and thrive.  The acorn already contains the perfect pattern and potential to become an oak, and so do you.

If you want to learn more about Derek and his new book Emergence: Seven Steps for Radical Life Change please click here to be directed to his website.

I hope you enjoy my interview with an author that takes a totally radical perspective to ending our delusion of lack and limitation, and truly helps us see who we really are and capable of growing into.

I recently had a wonderful interview with Whitney Freya the author of “The Artist Within“.   Whitney is a creative muse and coach for a growing number of clients around the world.  Her new book “The Artist Within” is a guidebook for helping our inner artist to become more expressive.  Whitney likes to refer to this process as “making us creatively fit” and finding our “super soul flow”.

She outlines the eight principles of design, and these principles are the language of our mind’s eye–how we visually analyze everything we see.  As we discuss in our interview we explore these principles which are emphasis, balance, proportion, unity, harmony, contrast, rhythm and repetition.

If you have not drawn anything or painted or used any form of media to express yourself you might want to check out Whitney’s new book and learn what it possible to become more artistically expressive and not be afraid doing it. You will definitely have fun and your creative energy can be expressed in many different ways.
