Ep.19- Zan Sacker: Birth of the Hell Run, Masculinity, Deepening Relationships, & Pushing Your Limits

This week I had the good fortune of being able to sit down with my good friend Zan and talk about some really dense issues. The episode is sort of broken into two big parts. The first half we spend a lot of time talking about the birth of the Hell Run he created and how Masculinity and Relationships play a vital role in it’s purposes. The second half we spend some more time talking about cultivating meaningful relationships, pushing yourself out of your comfort zone, and what it means to truly THRIVE.

Zan is truly a man’s man. He is the founder and creator of the Hell Run. The Hell Run is a run that goes down Saturday mornings in the forest of the mountains in the Santa Monica region. He unites men from all over the city together in a ceremonious tribal environment that encourages men to stop being “good boys” and to tap into their true nature as men. This race is filled with obstacle courses, intentional mindfulness exercises, and connects man with nature in a truly unique way. The Hell Run helped me deal with some issues I had a while back and really gave me a healthy shift in perspective. Zan is also a father of two beautiful girls, and is married to an amazing women who also happens to be best friends with my wife.

Jeff is also an avid meditation practitioner and is well versed in the world of mindfulness and spirituality. Jeff is a great friend of mine and is a familiar guest of the podcast.

On this episode we cover an array of topics. We talk about our broken political and healthcare systems and how we can bring about change. We dive into ways in which we can be proactive to bring about positive change in our lives by doing what we love as often as possible. We discuss drinking alcohol and why drinking less of it is probably a good thing. We discuss the power of curiosity and how remaining authentic and curious can be tremendous factors to overall happiness. We discuss the importance of moderation and how the 80/20 principle is an optimal way to live your life.

Ep.16- Jesse Elder: Eradicating Fear, Unpacking Your Consciousness, & Breaking Through Your Money Barriers

“Fear is not your biggest problem, it is your biggest STORY” —Jesse Elder

I’m so thrilled to bring you guys today’s guest, Jesse Elder. Jesse has been the single most influential mentor of mine for the past year. Jesse is one of the most powerful leaders of this consciousness shift taking place right now. He is one of the most sought out Speakers and Coaches in the world. He has some of the most die-hard fanatical followers I’ve ever seen, and is just an overall brilliant, awesome human being.

Prior to becoming a high-end Coach, Speaker, Author, Mentor, and ethically conscious Entrepreneur, Jesse built a massive martial arts franchise from the ground up, and sold his 8 schools for millions of dollars. He was pulled to work with and mentor other Entrepreneurs who had a message to share with the world.

Jesse specializes in helping people hone in on and fine tune their message and unique skill sets. As he mentions in this podcast, people are drawn to him and fanatical about his message because he has an ability to illuminate and shed light on people’s greatest strengths and true potential. As he always states,

“If you spot it, you got.”

Meaning, if you’re one of the thousands of people who follow Jesse and admire his confidence, passion, and certainty in what he stands for, then you have those same traits somewhere inside of your consciousness.

Jesse has also created two of the most fascinating groups/tribes on Facebook: Ethical Cult Building and Jesse Elder’s 7-Day ARC Challenge.  The Ethical Cult Building Group is how I found Jesse and was introduced to him by my business coach. The second I was accepted into the group I binge watched/read all of the content I could get my hands on. I was baffled by Jesse’s teaching ability and the knowledge, wisdom, and unique insight he had on not just business, sales, & marketing, but on Life. Ever since then I’ve been hooked and visit the group for inspiration every single day.

The 7-Day ARC Challenge was another group that shed some interesting light on my skills as a Coach and my duty to spread the message I’ve been gifted with. Jesse gives his followers a Challenge every day for 7 days and asks the group members to actively participate and share their journey with the group. It’s a fascinating group and is jam-packed full of insightful content on how to become the best version of YOU.

I can honestly say that I have become a better human being because of Jesse and his teachings.

 

Jesse is an incredible story-teller, and you will definitely get a taste of this in this episode. On this episode we discuss:

  • How Fear is a Story you Choose to engage in, and how fear is learned and can be unlearned.
  • How to learn to appreciate yourself and not judge yourself so harshly
  • What to delete out of your life experience in order to get into personal alignment
  • How to unpack your consciousness with a 5-minute exercise
  • How to break through your money barriers and commit to financial freedom
  • Why Appreciation takes precedence over Gratitude and how that feeling can transform your life.
  • “If you spot it you got it” and how that can contribute to stepping into your power and light.

 

“I Was Born Without Fear… And So Were YOU”

 

Show Notes:

 

I’m so grateful to Jesse for sharing his message with us all on this episode. Hopefully we’ll be able to bring you guys round 2 sometime in the near future.

Ep.14- Cory Gregory: Coal Miner to Millionaire Fitness Entrepreneur, Lessons from Arnold Schwarzenegger & Tiger Woods, & The Importance of Your WHY

On this episode I sit down and have one of the most inspirational conversations I’ve ever had with the man himself, Cory Gregory.

He went from being raised by a single mom living in a trailer and working in a coal mine, to founding one of the biggest supplement companies (MusclePharm) in the world.

We cover what it takes to achieve your dreams and build a life that lights you on fire.

Ep.13- Sandra Pascal: Using Ayahuasca (Plant Medicine) to Heal, Grow & Thrive

On this episode I had the pleasure of sitting down and having an incredible conversation with Sandra Pascal. Sandra is an entrepreneur, business coach, and wellness advocate who is on a mission to change the world. On this episode she and I sit down and discuss her recent life-changing experience with one of the most powerful natural healing remedies in the world, Ayahuasca.

If you aren’t familiar with Ayahuasca, it derives from a plant that is brewed into a tea. The brewed Ayahuasca tea has been known to give profound psychological and spiritual insights and breakthroughs to whoever consumes it. There have been thousands of cases where people were able to break severe depression, addiction, PTSD, and other behavior issues with the use of Ayahuasca.

Sandra’s experience is fascinating. She breaks down each day of her experience and shares her specific moments of clarity, terror, and epiphany. Perhaps the most meaningful part of the interview was her vulnerability and openness to share the specific lessons she learned about herself while on the Ayahuasca journey. She opens up about overcoming abuse, neglect, low self-esteem, and how she’s been able to mend her broken relationships from the past. Sandra even shares her own abortion story and how it’s helped shape her into the amazing mother she is to her children today.

If you decide that you would like to have an Ayahuasca experience of your own, Sandra and her husband are offering to sponsor a lucky person with a $200 gift towards their plane flight to Costa Rica to experience Rythmia on their own. If you’re interested, DM her on Instagram at:  @sandrapascal 

I’m so excited to share this episode with you guys. If you enjoy it please feel free to share it out with your friends and family on social media, and head over to iTunes and give us a 5-star rating and leave us a positive review :)

Perhaps the most powerful part of the show comes at the very end when Mike opens up about the tragic loss of his father 8 years ago, and how he’s been able to overcome it and use it as fuel to continue to evolve and continue to seek more out of life. Recording this episode with Mike was such a treat for me, and I’m sure that when you finish listening to this episode you’ll understand why.
