Taking the spiritual journey is about finding the place you feel most at home.  I frequently believe that people on the journey have to experience many different spiritual paths before they ever find their true home.  Once you find it, you will know it–for you will feel comfortable and alive with all sentient beings around you and with the Universe.

In my interview with author Dani Antman about her new book “Wired for God-Adventures of a Jewish Yogi“, you will get to learn from someone who has found her home and has used the deep spiritual understandings to help heal others. When the Judaism from her childhood did not satisfy her spiritual awakenings she went on a path that included yoga, energy healing, and the Kabbalah to help her make a personal spiritual transformation.

A healing crisis, misplaced trust, and a failed marriage intensify her desire for a teacher who can lead her to self-realization. Dani’s prayers are answered in the form of a realized adept, a Swami from the fairway shores of Rishikesh, India, who initiates her in his lineage of Kundalini Science, the study of the Divine force within every human being that is the initiator of spiritual growth.

Dani has taken her own spiritual path from mystical Judaism through Kundalini Science and back again. Dani story is inspirational and provides the reader with true insights for all spiritual seekers.  If you want to learn more about Dani’s new book “Wired for God” please click here to go to her website or you can connect with her on Facebook by clicking here.

I hope you enjoy this wonderful interview with Dani Antman author of “Wired for God“.

I know that personally throughout my career I have made changes and taken course corrections. If you are like many people you may want to make a career course correction but you are uncertain about what your new career path might look like.  There are obviously lots of decision one must make, but in my interview with author Tim Cole, he outlines a great set of guiding principles that I believe would be great to follow.

In Tim’s new book “The Compass Solution” you are 4 P’s which stand for 1) Personal Accountability 2) People 3) Process 4) Perspective.  These main principles are important guideposts for navigating the path to a better career. As Tim states “It is your performance, your goals, and your vision for your life that will dictate your future.  For the remainder of your career, it will be the one thing you can count on and that you can set your course around.  Nothing else and no one else.”

I ask this questions to the listeners of this podcast.  If not now then when?  When will you make that all important decision to make the career change you have been thinking about but afraid to take?   Don’t let your fears hold you back.   Use this podcast and Tim’s book as the tools that can provide you with the courage and strength to make the change.  Allow the important information in the book to be your guide to a better career and life.

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 don’t know of too many people that hate chocolate, so for all you chocolate lovers you are going to love this interview.

Steve Wallace is the author of a new book entitled  “Oberoni and the Chocolate Factory-An Unlikely Story of Globalization and Ghana’s First Gourmet Chocolate Bar.” This book is about a fascinating journey about a man who truly has made a difference in the production of chocolate.  When we think of chocolate we immediately think of Switzerland, France, Belgium–but why?  Cocoa beans are not from those places.

Steve used to live in Ghana (one of the largest regions producing cocoa) when he was 16 years old. This experience transformed him and he wanted to return to Ghana and give back.  While the people of Ghana’s vertically-integrated cocoa bureaucracy, overseen by Ghans’s Cocoa Board, aspired to move up the cocoa value chain, they were unwilling to invest in doing so.  They were content to stay at the bottom of the value chain.

Needless to say with tremendous hard work and lots of maneuvering the cocoa bean system, Steve Wallace build a very successful chocolate bar factory called Omanhene Cocoa Bean Company.  The chocolate bars are produced and manufactured in Ghana and shipped to Wisconsin for boxing, sales, and shipping.  Omanhene Cocoa Bean Company is truly a global company employing and housing over 200 natives.  Steve provides his employees with a fair wage,  and housing and has infused the local economy with a newfound wealth from what was once a place of poverty.

If you want to listen to a truly great story about a social-entrepreneur on a mission to change the lives of hundreds of people, then you won’t want to miss my interview with Steve.

Thomas Moore is an author that writes books with meaning and significance, and his new book entitled ” Ageless Soul-The Lifelong Journey Toward Meaning and Joy” is no exception. His ability to weave into words how we are feeling as souls journeying through this lifetime and more importantly our aging process is nothing short of a masterpiece.

Moore provides readers with a new way to think about aging. In contrast to the perception that aging means diminishment, Moore regards aging as the process by which we become more fully ourselves: a series of initiations, rather than losses. “Aging with soul is the process of becoming a full, rich, and interesting person. “Ageless Soul” is a deeply compassionate book on how to find new meaning, vigor, connection and growth in the process of aging.

No matter where you are on the age continuum I believe you will find deep reflective meaning in Thomas Moore’s new book. It will get you thinking about how to live the later years of your life with more significance and meaning. It is filled with stories not only from the author’s own experiences, but of others that are traveling the aging journey as well.

I trust you will enjoy this wonderful interview with Thomas Moore the author of “Ageless Soul“. If you want to find out more about Thomas and his new book please click here to be directed to his website. Enjoy listening!

This is my second interview with author and entrepreneur Michael Alden.   What I love about Michael is his passion for his work and life, he truly is a trailblazer.

His new book entitled ” Blueprint to Business-An Entrepreneur’s Guide To Taking Action, Committing To the Grind, And Doing The Things That Most People Won’t” is a must-read for any entrepreneur.  Michael has had his share of ups and downs like many entrepreneurs, but he has learned from his lessons and applies the learning to make the next venture he gets engaged with just that much more successful.

Michael’s book is the ultimate guide with practical advice from a master entrepreneur who can really teach new entrepreneurs invaluable lessons.  I can really appreciate his chapter on “Doing What You Say”.  “In business and in life, always do what you say you’re going to do. Keep your word. When you tell yourself that you are going to do something, and you don’t do it, you’re doing yourself a disservice, and you’re setting yourself back. Not following through on something you said you were going to do is an absolute travesty.”

This sound advice runs throughout “Blueprint to Business” In my interview with Michael we speak about his personal life and business ventures, as well as he imparts practical and sound advice about becoming an entrepreneur.  I know you will love this lively and engaging interview with the author, entrepreneur Michael Alden.

I absolutely love how author Albert Flynn DeSilver approaches the topic of writing.  In his new book entitled ” Writing as a Path to Awakening,” Albert guides the reader through what can only be expressed as a spiritual experience.  If you have ever written a book, poetry or long-term paper you will agree that the process of writing can be an out of body experience.

The deeper you get into your writing the more open you are to just write without judgments and you will experience what I term as flow.  It is a wonderful experience, and sometimes you don’t know where the words on the paper come from–it’s is as if you were the channeled.

Albert writes that many of us struggle with maintaining a practice of staying consistent in order to develop a process.  The consistent striving for an imagined sense of perfection is one of the things that can keep us off the page.  If perfection is your jam, say this out loud, in all caps for emphasis.  THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS PERFECTION.

Writing as a Path to Awakening”  is a treasure trove of practical advice on writing and on finding yourself, for the process of creative writing always has you exploring your deep inner thoughts, and learning how to express them to the world.

I hope you enjoy this great interview with author Albert DeSilver if you want to learn more about the author please click here to be taken to his website.

Many of us are guilty of trapping ourselves in the web of negative self-talk. The not-good-enough, self-doubt cycles that many of us cope with on a daily basis. We know its detrimental, but what are we doing to stop insidious cycle of negative self-talk? How do we reduce this thinking quickly and replace it with a positive affirmative monologue?

In my interview with author and coach, Gary John Bishop we talk his new book entitled “Unfu*ck Yourself-Get Out Of Your Head and Into Your Life“. This book is an easy read packed with practical advice on creating more success and abundance in your life and quieting the pesky self-doubt. Over the years, Gary has coached thousands of individuals from entrepreneurs, athletes, professionals and creatives. Gary’s philosophy has yielded a high success rates by leading individuals down the road to replacing old negative self-talk with positive thoughts and sustaining this growth and potential.

Gary states that “If human emotions largely result from thinking, then one way to appreciably control one’s feelings is by controlling one’s thoughts—or by changing the internalized sentences, or self-talk, with which one largely created the feeling in the first place.” Gary believes the answers we are seeking lie within ourselves, but we must be open to finding these answers and believe in our guiding voice.

If you feel like something unspoken is holding you back from abundance and reaching ultimate success, then give Gary John Bishop a listen! If you are interested in knowing more about Gary please click here for his website.
