Gretchen Rubin on the Key to Happiness Is Knowing Yourself EP 134

Gretchen Rubin on the Key to Happiness Is Knowing Yourself EP 134

May 9, 2022

Gretchen Rubin - The Key to Happiness Is Knowing Yourself | Brought to you by Babbel (https://babbel.com/passionstruck and Trade Coffee (https://drinktrade.com/passionstruck).

Gretchen Rubin is an expert on understanding human nature and being able to explain complex emotional topics in easy-to-digest ways. She is the author of the New York Times bestsellers, The Happiness Project, Better Than Before, Outer Order Inner Calm, and Happier at Home. Gretchen has an enormous readership, both in print and online, and her books have sold almost three and a half million copies worldwide, in more than thirty languages.

The Key to Happiness is Knowing Yourself

On her popular weekly podcast Happier with Gretchen Rubin, she discusses good habits and happiness with her sister Elizabeth Craft; they’ve been called the “Click and Clack of podcasters.” Fast Company named Gretchen to its list of Most Creative People in Business, and she’s a member of Oprah’s SuperSoul 100. She’s been interviewed by Oprah, walked arm-in-arm with the Dalai Lama, and eaten dinner with Daniel Kahneman.

On the Passion Struck podcast I discuss with Gretchen the life lessons she learned clerking for Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. How during that clerkship she realized that her purpose was to become a writer and not a lawyer. How the study of human nature became her purpose and the key to knowing yourself. The difference between happiness and being happy. Her views on how negative experiences influence our happiness. The importance of decluttering our lives and why doing so brings us more joy, building habits, the key role they play in building happiness and so much more.

Why Self-Acceptance is the Key to Creating Your Best Life. Sam Berns's inspirational story and what we can learn from his courageous life. | Brought to you by Masterworks (https://masterworks.io use code passion to start).

Self-acceptance entails ultimately valuing all parts of yourself — both the desirable and undesirable. It means you understand your current reality, come to terms with it, and aspire to live your life as best as possible. Self-acceptance is perhaps the most incredible gift you can give to yourself.

Thank you Feedspot for selecting the Passion Struck as one of the world's most inspirational podcasts.

Self-Acceptance - The Courageous Story of Sam Berns

I will be opening your hearts and minds to the need to love and accept yourself for who you are through the inspirational story of Sam Berns. Additionally, I will lay out practical actions you can take to achieve self-acceptance ultimately.

Sam Berns was diagnosed with a rare, rapid aging disease when he was 2. Sam lived a short but fulfilling life. Just before his untimely death at the age of 17, he was a junior at Foxboro High School in Foxboro, Massachusetts. He achieved the highest honors and earned percussion section leader in the high school marching band during his time there. He also made the prestigious Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America.

He is featured in the Emmy award-winning documentary Life According to Sam, which premiered on HBO on October 21, 2013, 2 days before his 17th birthday. This episode of the Passion Struck Podcast is dedicated to Sam, progeria research, and the inspiring way he lived. Sam Berns Tedx Talk has 48 Million views: https://youtu.be/36m1o-tM05g

Anne O’Neil on Why Life Like Sports Is a Strategy by Design EP 132

May 4, 2022

Anne O'Neil (@heyanneoneil) on our life like sports is a strategy by design. | Brought to you by Masterworks (https://masterworks.io/ - use code passion to start).

Anne O’Neil is a former WNBA player for the Sacramento Monarchs and a Division 1 Academic and Athletic All-American at Iowa State University where she played for Bill Fennelly. She broke the Iowa High School State scoring record and was later inducted into the Iowa Girls Basketball Hall of Fame. Following a 12-year tenure in the athletic and healthcare industries, she took her expertise to Palo Alto Networks where she is a cyber transformational leader. She is also the host host of the Get Busy Livin podcast.

Strategy by Design

On the Passion Struck Podcast, Anne and I discuss how life, like basketball, is really strategy by design. And just as each play, makes a difference for each individual game, the same holds true for the moments that make up our daily activities. She believes that ferocity taught her how to read and know where to move her body ahead of time, where to pass the ball ahead of time, and where her teammates were going to be able to shine.

How Do You STOP Living in Fear and Letting It CONTROL You? with John R. Miles EP 130

How Do You STOP Living in Fear and Letting It CONTROL You? with John R. Miles EP 130

April 29, 2022

John R. Miles - How do you stop living in fear and letting it control you. Fears are not just passively forgotten, they must be actively unlearned. Brought to you by Raycon (https://buyraycon.com/passionstruck) and Athletic Greens (https://athleticgreens.com/passionstruck).

The Neuroscience Behind Fear

We need to realize that fear is just an emotion that is utterly dependent on our thoughts at the end of the day. It does not have to control our lives and can be effectively unlearned. Fear is a complicated thing. In today's episode, I will be taking you on an in-depth journey into the world of the emotion called fear, explaining the neuroscience of fear, giving you details on how fear is learned, and equipping you with knowledge on how you can effectively unlearn fear.

Thank you for listening. I hope you keep up with the weekly videos I post on the YouTube channel, subscribe to, and share your learnings with those who need to hear them. ► Subscribe to My Channel Here: https://www.youtube.com/c/JohnRMiles

Laurie Singer on You’re Not Crazy: There is Hope for Those Experiencing Anxiety, Obsessions, or Fetishes EP 129

April 27, 2022

Laurie Singer - You're Not Crazy: There is hope for those experiencing anxiety, obsessions, or fetishes. | Brought to you by Raycon (https://buyraycon.com/passionstruck) and Athletic Greens (https://athleticgreens.com/passionstruck).

Laurie Singer is a board-certified licensed marriage and family therapist in applied behavior analysis. Motivated by the tragic death of her son in the late 80s, she devoted her life to the field of mental health.  She started her own company to create a team approach for helping individuals resolve behavioral and other mental health issues by applying behavioral and cognitive-behavioral therapy.

Laurie and I discuss how she developed the passion to compete in endurance challenges and what it was like for her to be indoctrinated into the Hall of Fame. The impact on her life from the death of her young son. Why does she believe that anyone who is stuck can become unstuck? How she develops plans that help individuals gain confidence by achieving their goals that they set for themselves. We discussed the strong scientific evidence and understanding that our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are highly interdependent how she helps those who suffered deeply from anxiety and its manifestations and so much more.
