I remember back when I was just about 10 or 11 years old, seeing a book on my mom's bookcase, in her sewing room, call "Your Erroneous Zones." It was by a guy named Wayne Dyer. I didn't know anything about him or the book. My mom said it was about the power of thinking positive. That seems VERY interesting to me, even at that age.
Even though I dug into many book on the power of the human mind and how our thoughts shaped our world, I didn't really ever read much of Dr. Dyer's work.
In 2006, the host on our radio program gave each member of the show a copy of Dr. Wayne Dyer's book The Power of Intention. It was so far outside of my world-view it took me several months to really read it. But, when I did, WOW! This book lit me up like a 3000 watt light bulb. I couldn't get enough of it.
Today, I've read at least 7 or 8 of Dr. Dyer's books and he's be influential in shaping my views of the world and the one to come which Dr. Dyer himself is now inhabiting.
In this episode I explore some wonderful quotes from Dr. Dyer and explore my view of them and how they've affected how I live my life. I also give you some ways in which you can use them to find peace, joy and purpose in your daily life.
Here are the quotes:
If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.
When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.
You cannot always control what goes on outside. But you can always control what goes on inside.
What comes out of you when you are squeezed is what is inside of you.
Our lives are a sum total of the choices we have made.
I hope each of these quotes will not only inspire you but literally change you.

Here's what I cover in this episode:
This is probably the most asked question of me. "How do I figure out my life purpose?"
I dig VERY deep into this topic and explore WHY we all feel a need to know this. Basically, it's about feeling valuable, feeling as though our life has meaning and isn't just wasted energy. We all want to know it somehow matters.
No More Struggle
I don't want you to struggle any longer with this, so I've broken it down; letting you know what your ultimate life purpose is, as well as what your purpose is this year and even today.
Sounds impossible, I know, but really the answer is quite simple, yet incredibly complex at the same time. So come along on this journey with me and, in about 30 minutes, we'll discover exactly what you're supposed to do right now and for the rest of your life.

Here's what I cover in this episode:
Experts calculate that you are lied to about 100 times every single day. Some days it's less, some days it's more, but on average, you're hearing about 100 lies per day.
Maybe that's easy for you to believe because you've been lied to so many times, but the truth is, there's someone in the world right now who is believing a lie because YOU told it to them. In fact, there's someone believing a lie today because I told it to them.
Why does it feel next to impossible to be honest, or have people be honest to us? It seems like we have to have some sort of lie at all times in an effort to protect ourselves or others,
In this episode, we're going to explore the world of lying and what it does to us, the people around us and the relationships we have with the.
Can A Lie Be A Good Thing?
If you immediately react to this question with a resounding "NO" you should really pause and listen to this episode. I give an example where lying is very clearly a good thing. If you don't believe me, you'll have to listen in and hear for yourself.

Here's what I'm going to cover in this episode:
The Fear of Mediocrity
What it is and how it manifests itself in our life. I'm going to look at perfectionism and how it can stop us from doing what needs to be done to achieve our goals.
We all have a maximum capacity for ourselves. I still believe, as humans we have an unlimited potential, but that don't mean in this moment, you have an unlimited ability. For example, even if you believe it, you can not hold your breath for 30 minutes. That doesn't mean man doesn't have the potential to develop to the point where we can do it, it just means, right now, you're going to go about 2-3 minutes and need to breath. Right?
I share an experiment where I try to hold my breath for as long as possible. I also share another experiment where I hold my breath for one minute, rest for 20 seconds and hold it again for 1 minute. Ultimately, I'm able to hold my breath for a longer period of time when I interject a break just beyond my comfort zone.
John Lee Dumas - Entreprenuer on Fire
You'll hear me get very vulnerable as I talk about why I felt compelled to do a daily podcast when I first started and how that lead to me failing repeatedly. Thankfully that failure has lead to improvement (as it always does).
I look at why John Lee Dumas was able to succeed doing a daily podcast and I wasn't. It's not about John trying harder or me having bigger hurdles, it's about capacity at that time. Listen and you'll understand much better.
It's not about being consistently frequent, it's about being frequently consistent. Just wanting to do more won't get you to do more. You have to have the capacity to do more and I didn't.
Mental Mastery Mondays
In this episode, I share about why I'm changing the show from Mental Mastery Moment to Mental Mastery Mondays. I'm taking this from a daily show to a weekly show and even expanding the length of the show when needed. Most of the time it will still be under 20 minutes.
I'm also going to include guests on my show from time-to-time if they fit. I'm not looking for the typical podcasts guest, but instead, people who are willing to talk about their struggles and how how they overcame them. I want people who will be honest and vulnerable, not just pom-pom carrying cheerleaders.
Call to Action
Review your own performance. Are you stretching beyond your grasp or staying inside of your comfort zone? If you are stretching, are you trying to go too far? Are you finding your effort comes in spurts with periodic collapses? You may be going too far.
