I went to Tony Robbins’ Life and Wealth Mastery event recently in Noordwijk, Netherlands.
One of my favorite things about going to events is meeting like-minded people who are a living example of health and well-being.
I met Walter Nudo when we jumped off 50 foot poles
We started talking and hit it off.
I learned a lot from him about health but even more I learned about the deeper principles behind why you’d do any of it to begin with.
He brings a more purposeful and mindful meaning to health and well-being.

If you’re working hard to create a result in your life but struggle to make it happen. There’s one reason that’s holding you back.
We have an internal blueprint for every area of our life that is the cause for what we have currently produced in life.
Everything you have created so far in life in your health, intimate relationship, finances and business are a byproduct of your belief systems.
The crazy part is most people are totally oblivious about the beliefs that are determining every action and decision they make. They are walking around unconscious and at the whim of their past conditioning and circumstances life throws at them.
Here’s a short clip from a talk I did with the Gracie Brazilian jiu jitsu team:
Nothing with change until you change.
In order to do something you haven’t done you have to be someone you haven’t been!
Here are a few simple steps to shift a disempowering belief:
1.) Create awareness. What’s an area of life you are struggling with? What is a situation you find yourself not being your best? There is a limiting belief there. Write down whatever comes up.
2.) Question the limiting belief. Is it true?
Example: It’s bad to make a lot of money
Is it true? Are there people who do great work in the world who make billions of dollars?
Yes there are lots of people who do and impact the world. They are a force for good and use their money as a tool to create empowering change.
3.) Create a new empowering belief.
Example: Money is a powerful tool to make the world a better place and create positive change.
4.) Look for reference experiences to support that new belief.
Were there times you’ve seen money used in a good way by someone who had a lot of it?
Have you ever used your money to help others?
Find someone living by the empowering belief and be around them as the experience will challenge your current limiting belief system.
5.) Condition it.
Write the new belief and put it on your wall.
Repeat it out loud and engage your body and voice to drive it deep in your nervous system so you never forget.

I visited the Colosseum in Rome last week.
It was stunning to say the least.
Seeing the lower level where the gladiators trained and prepared for battle caught my attention. It made me think how we must train our minds to be our best each and every single day.
Just like you wouldn’t expect to go to the gym or take a yoga class once and be fit for the rest of your life.
It is not a good strategy to expect your mind and emotions to just be the way you want them to be without doing anything to make them that way.
Most people expect life to just work out and allow things to unfold getting tossed around in the sea of life without taking control of the wheel (their mind) and directing where they want to go. Become the captain of your ship.
Rather than expecting things to happen for you and being a creature of circumstance you must step up and become the creator of your circumstance and live life on your terms.
Key takeaways from the video:
We must train our minds like we go to the gym.
Successful people aren’t lucky. They train themselves to be, do and feel the way they want.
You can change the channel of your experience of life like changing the channel on the TV.
If it’s not working that means it’s working.
Trade your expectations for appreciation.
The beginning of suffering is expectation.
The end of suffering is appreciation.
Gratitude is a practice.
Training your mind is a practice.

What are you doing to get better each day?
One of the biggest challenges I used to have personally and I see show up with most people is the desire to get to a place in life where you no longer need to put in the work to become better. They want to
People want to have tons of money so they can sit down and do nothing all day.
People want to go to the gym for one weekend and be fit for life.
People want to be in their dream intimate relationship and have all their needs met and be fulfilled by their partner rather than thinking about how they can give and meet the needs of their partner.
People want to reach the pinnacle of success in their careers without putting in the work and be like the ‘overnight’ success stories they hear about and not put in the work to keep on innovating and creating.
The two main motivating forces driving this behavior is the human needs for certainty and significance.
We have a need to feel safe and secure for our survival which is very important. The challenge that is where most people go all the time out of their fear rather than stepping out of their comfort zone into the realm of uncertainty.
We also have a need to feel special and important which is also valuable. The challenge here is most people get addicted to this feeling which is why you see so many people in our culture wanting to be instafamous. What they really want is a sense of love they feel they are missing and are driven by their fear of not being enough so they overcompensate on trying to be significant because they think the attention will give them the love they desire deep down in their heart. It actually does the opposite because when you are so special and significant it separates you and those you want to be more connected and share love with.
So why am I saying all this?
Because in order to live the lives we truly desire we need to step out of our comfort zones a little more each and every day. It never stops as long as you want to keep on growing and live an expansive life with rich experiences. Every day in our health, relationships, career, finances, spirituality, contribution to the world we must grow and step a little more into the unknown. The training never stops. The reason we must grow is ultimately so we have more to GIVE which brings true fulfillment in life.
Here’s a short clip from a talk I did with Carlson Gracie MMA for their athletes and coaches on stepping out of our comfort zones into the realm of uncertainty each day. Enjoy!
Key take aways from the video:
Nothing in life stays the same.
You are either growing or dying.
You are either moving forward or getting left behind.
Your past does not equal your future unless you choose to live there.

Do you ever wonder how some people are able to accomplish so much while others are constantly grinding away and seem to be getting nothing important done?
Even more the people who make things happen seem to still have more time to travel, enjoy life and spend time with their family and friends.
They don’t have more time.
We all have the same 24 hours in a day.
They have a system.
A system to manage their minds. Because what is time anyway?
Time is EMOTION.
If you can learn to manage your emotions and your mind then time is malleable and you can get those seemingly impossible projects done and get more done in a year than most people get done in a lifetime!
I created this video below that explains it in more detail:
Here’s a quick recap of the process:
Capture, write down everything you have to do.
This is usually most people’s overwhelming to do list.
Review last week.
What went great? What were the highlights…success can only build on success
What did you learn?
What can you do better?
Set up your outcome blocks.
How much time will each one take (this can be over the course of many weeks for one project)
What are the top 3 outcomes you have for the week?
Schedule them in your calendar and how much time they will take to complete.
Be flexible and come up with your plan in case life happens and you need to change your approach.
Post below your top 3 outcomes and action steps to achieve them and we will send the top two posts our DreamOSLabs t shirts anywhere in the world.
I used to live in reaction to life. I could be in a down mood for any number of arbitrary reasons. If it was raining outside, someone said something mean to me, had work to get done, woke up in a bad mood etc.
I was sick and tired of feeling depressed, angry, confused, tired, unmotivated….
That’s when I read an awesome book by Jack Canfield “The Success Principles”
Yeah I know books like this can seem cheesy, but Jack is actually a really smart dude – he graduated from Harvard and worked for W Clement Stone
The two big takeaways for me were that I must take 100% responsibility for what has happened and what will happen in my life and that there are technologies to manage my thoughts, feelings and behaviors.
One of the tools I use daily is in this video I made for you. You’ll like this video if…
- You want to take control of your life
- You want to tap into the power of your subconscious mind
- You want to be creative and have a fun time with your environment
Ps. Leave a comment on the video and we’ll pick someone in the next 48 hours to send an anchoring exercise that will make a powerful shift in your life ($100 value).
I started meditating about 3 years ago.
I did it because I heard of amazing benefits from successful people I admire.
I didn’t take a class or pay thousands of dollars for a mantra.
I just started closing my eyes, sitting still and tried quieting my mind.
I also had nice background music to calm my brain waves.
Recently I discovered the Muse Headband from my friend and coach Jairek Robbins and it has helped me take my meditation game way up.
Here’s a video I made about it:
For those of you interested in being part of my Life Performance Team it’s only $20 per month and we have a bi-weekly one hour google hangout session. We don’t allow anyone in the group as you must add value and contribute. Each call is dedicated to one specific area of life (fitness/health, relationships, finances, mission, spiritual, fun etc.) and how to use the mind and body to optimize your life.
We are also going to have a Mind and Body Restoration Retreat Grand Teton this Summer!
It’s in part of the Rocky Mountains in Northwest Wyoming and looks over Jacksonhole Valley. It’s part of Yellowstone National Park too!
