Wish you had a renowned life coach to give you advice and guidance, but maybe it’s not in your budget? Today is your lucky day because I sat down with acclaimed author, speaker, and life coach Tim Storey to tell you how to overcome challenges by listening to a higher power and share your message with the world.

Tim Storey is a well known coach among celebrities, athletes, and executives. He has traveled all over the world and spoken to millions of people encouraging them to step into their calling. He is also the pastor of a church in Yorba Linda, California where he serves people from all walks of life.

Questions I Asked Tim:

God?

This week I sat down with Justin Krane, author, money strategist, and frequent guest on MSNBC to discuss how we empower ourselves financially.

Check out the podcast HERE

I love Justin’s message because he encourages his clients to ENJOY life. Instead of feeling guilty about buying a five dollar coffee drink, he says that we should at times indulge in small pleasures. Although he agrees that we need to live and spend responsibility,  he has a refreshing way of teaching how to go about that.

We discussed many things in this episode including the power of delegating and creating a solid team around you, the importance of human capital, and how to develop a prosperity mindset.

This is an incredible episode for those who may feel at a loss with their finances or struggle with knowing how to balance a budget and still enjoy life.

Questions I Asked Justin:

  • How can we create better systems in our business?
  • Should we save for retirement?
  • How do we clear our mental blocks about money?

Topics Discussed:

  • Why men should not dye their own hair
  • The importance of getting on the “money scale”.
  • The importance of delegating.

Quotes from the show

  • “Systems are sexy.” @LindaMitchell
  • “Be a prosperity thinker. Believe that you can create the life that you want by taking action.” @JustinKrane
  • “I believe you have to fail all the time” @JustinKrane

You guys are going to LOVE this episode with our guest Alexandra Jamieson. You might know her from her appearance on Oprah talking about her TV series, “30 Days”. Jamieson has a power message about our relationship with food and how she is helping women everywhere discover the deeper truths and meaning behind their cravings.

We discuss everything from shaming and sexuality to the importance of living authentically.

She also reveals the four causes of cravings and the importance of listening to what your body is saying to you. She presents the idea that our body is speaking to us but too often we are not listening.

Tune is here to listen now.

______________________________________________________________

Here’s just a few of the many pointers Alex shared:

How to stop shrinking and start stepping fully into our personal power

  • It's not something we can do alone.
  • The importance of investing in the right relationships
  • Pay attention to authenticity
  • It’s never easy to let go of people or a certain way of living, but the more you do it the easier it gets. You develop grit and resilience. It’s a muscle that you can strengthen.

The 4 root causes of cravings:

  1. Bacterial
    • On a biochemical level, we are as much bacterial as we are human.  
  2. Nutritional
    • . Your body craves what it needs. Look at your cravings in more of a curious way.
  3. Emotional
    • . This gets shut out of dietary theory which is a shame. We are emotional creatures.
  4. Physical
    • . Sex and food. Vitamin P is the thing that we are all lacking. Play and pleasure.

How women can build a support system?

  • In-person events.
  • Ask, “Who lights you up? Who are you attracted to?”
  • Ask yourself, “How did you make friends when you were a kid?”
  • Be intentional about putting yourself around the right people.
  • Take a leap if you feel drawn to something. Other people like you will be there too.
  • Resource: Two summer camps for adults: Good Life Camp and Soul Camp.

Don’t delay and listen now to start putting you and your body as a priority.

Questions I asked Lana:
● What made you want to come to America?
● As a Korean, Russian immigrant, you came to America with one dollar in your pocket,
but a big dream within your heart . How do you think that dream in your heart, though
you had no money and couldn't speak the language, was the difference maker?
● You had a special pair of earrings and a bracelet that your grandmother gave to you.
Can you tell us the significance of that?
● There was a moment where you had to make a choice. That is when they stole your earrings, they stole your bracelet. Your grandmother had given it to you saying, “Sell this if you need to”. Of course you didn’t want to sell it. Here you are getting ripped off by a bunch of hoodlums. Your moment was whether you fold up and go back to Russia, or push forward. So tell us about that moment and how that brought you clarity.
● How did you meet the guy who knew Bruce Lee so well?
● What is the universal language that we all have to communicate with?

success?

● Focus on what you can do not what you can't do. It's a lot more than what you think.
● “A lot of us are waiting for a big success, a break through. In reality, it's what you do
everyday.”
● The power of the compound effect. If you write one page a day for a year, you will
have over 300 pages written of your book.
The importance of mantra chanting:
● Certain notes activate energy in your body.
● Opening your heart is very important.
● It helps you feel loved.
● The more you practice everyday, you will be in a constant state of peace and bliss.
● “The more you love your life, the more life is going to give you back.”

Mar 3, 2018

Annette Fredskov is a 45 year-old mother of two, Emilie (16) and Viktor (14). She lives with the love of her life Kim.

She says, “Every morning I make the decision to have the best day possible. I choose to do all I can to be the best version of myself. I choose to focus on all the positive; positive thoughts and positive feelings and what I want. I look in my eyes in the mirror and say, I love you. I smile to myself and feel love”.

Annette's motto, “I can do it” is something she's said to herself thousands of times. She says, “I have programmed my mind and all the cells in my body, to believe that everything is possible. If I really want it, if I believe it, and am willing to work hard for it. Forget all about limitations and go for it. I can do it, and so can you.  Do whatever you want and put your mind to it”.

From October 2010, Annette has ran 660 marathons and 24 ultras. In 2012/2013 she ran 366 marathons in 365 days. In 2015, she ran from Denmark to Paris, France, 1130 kilometers in 19 days.

She says, “I am curious what I can do when my mind, spirit and body work together and I focus on my possibilities. Then anything is possible”.

In 2009, she was diagnosed with MS (multiple sclerosis). Today she has no symptoms of MS and medical examinations show no MS activity. She believes that her lifestyle with positive thinking and exercise has greatly contributed to her health. She says, “I have taken responsibility for my own life and it has given me freedom and high quality of life”.

Professionally Annette is a speaker, writer, and mentor. She is passionate about inspiring people to make the best of their lives, find peace, joy and balance and reach their goals.

She believes that, “We all deserve love, joy, laughter and passion - and even more love”.

_______________________________________________________

Intro to show:

It was wonderful to sit down and talk with Annette Fredskov from Denmark. She was incredible energetic and had a powerful message to share with us.

Annette says that she is a “normal” person who made the decision to be extraordinary. She started running only ten years ago and since then has ran 660 Marathons. In one year she ran 366 marathons in 365 days, running two marathons on her last day.

Another amazing part of her story is that she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2009. Since then however, she has kept running and believes that by “taking responsibility” of her life she has been able to not only rewire her brain but also bring health to her body. Since her diagnoses they have not found traces of MS in her body.

She credits her ability to run, to her passion and curiosity. In this episode she says that every morning she makes “the decision to have the best day possible” and that she is “willing to work hard and forget all limitations.”

Questions I asked Annette:

  • What would you say to someone who says they don't run? Who say “I can’t”?
  • How much did you rely on your mindset when you were running mile after mile and probably sometimes wanted to quit?
  • Why did you set the goal of running a marathon everyday?
  • Did you want to prove something? If so what did you want to prove?
  • How many running shoes did you run through the year of running?
  • How much water per day was it necessary to drink to run these marathons?
  • What was it like to run a marathon everyday and still take care of your house, your kids, the laundry, cook and clean and all of that?
  • Do you think if you stopped running your MS would return? (Question from online)
  • What did you eat while running and what did you do to recover?
  • What other types of things did you say to yourself to keep going when it got hard?
  • What is the greatest lesson you have learned running 366 marathons in 365 days?
  • How did you recover when you had an evening and morning marathon back to back?
  • Did you eat before and after your run?

Topics discussed:

How can someone overcome the mindset of thinking that they “can’t” do something?

  • It comes down to what you want. If you really want to do something you have to make it important.
  • You have to be willing to take small steps. If you want to run, walk first. Then build up.
  • Know it's never too late to start something.

Power of mindset:

  • You have to be intentional with what you tell yourself repeatedly and what you fill your mind with.
  • Focus on what you want and not what you don't want.
  • Faith is a muscle. If you do not have it now you can develop it.

Dealing with criticism:

  • Any big idea people will think your crazy.
  • People may think it's crazy. But it's not their dream.
  • The bigger the dream, the more you need to go after it
  • When you go for your dream, you may get resistance. But if you believe in your dream, people will come along.
  • Realize that it has nothing to do with you. It’s about them.
  • Understanding age is a mindset.
