Passion Struck with John R. Miles
Katie Chonacas On: Being a Rebel With a Cause EP 109

Katie Chonacas On: Being a Rebel With a Cause EP 109

February 22, 2022

In this episode, I interview Katie Chonacas, a Greek international actress, filmmaker, voice actor, author, host of the She's All Over the Place podcast, and musician. We discuss her life being a rebel with a cause. You will find during our discussion that Katie has an ethos that surrounds her.

Katie talks about becoming an international actor who went from passion to profession and how that experience launched into being a voiceover artist. Why does she feel so strongly about mental health and staying true to her morals and values? She outlines her tangible steps to achieve any goal you want to accomplish in life and discusses why she wants to be a leader and role model for future generations. We discuss her new podcast season and why she is doubling down on NFTs.

This episode is sponsored by Athletic Greens, BetterHelp, and Ten Thousand.

The Science of Healthy Habits - How to Make Habits Stick EP 108

The Science of Healthy Habits - How to Make Habits Stick EP 108

February 18, 2022

In this episode, I tell the story of Kieran Behan and, through his account, review the science of creating healthy habits, unhealthy habit elimination, and how the process of neuroplasticity (brain rewiring) facilitates habit formation.

I describe the role of the prefrontal cortex, which is grounded in the neuroscience of brain states and our ability to insert conscious effort, intention, and thought into the process. I also discuss neuroplasticity, also known as neural plasticity, or brain plasticity, and the neural networks' ability to change through growth and reorganization.

I then dive into how you create healthy habits and what makes habits stick using gymnastics and Kieran's story to help illustrate the points. I offer seven suggestions based on science that should help anyone create better habits and eliminate bad habits for fitness, relationships, school, career, and more--indeed, becoming empowered in the task of creating meaningful, prosperous, and productive habits. Once the habit formation cycle is formed, you can confidently creep closer and closer to your goals.

Jen Bricker-Bauer On: Everything is Possible EP 107

Jen Bricker-Bauer On: Everything is Possible EP 107

February 15, 2022

Jen Bricker-Bauer is an aerialist, motivational speaker, and New York Times, bestselling author. Born without legs, Jen's biological parents left her at the hospital, destined for a life of hardship. However, the hand of God brought her an amazing adoptive family, who taught her that everything is possible.

As a child, Jen was obsessed with gymnastics, and her idol was gold medalist Dominique Moceanu. In fact, watching Dominique on TV, helped inspire Jen to start competing herself. Seemingly against all odds, Jen competed against able-bodied athletes and became a State Champion in power tumbling. As part of her fantastic story and a twist of fate, Jen later learned that her childhood gymnastics idol, Dominique Moceanu, was actually her biological sister.

John R. Miles sits down with Jen Bricker-Bauer to talk about why she never says the word "can't" and how she has come to believe that everything is possible if you set your mind to it. You learn that you can achieve everything you've dreamed of when you unlock your purpose and create an intentional life. Jen discusses why she is doing everything she can to spread inspiration and joy throughout the world and is following her calling to teach others they can do anything they put their minds to achieving.

How You Use Joy As Your Compass EP 106

I am currently reading The Power of Myth by Joseph Campbell, and one of my favorite quotes from him is, "find a place inside where there's joy, and the joy will burn out the pain."

Joy is such a powerful compass.

It is a gift that actually helps us navigate the complex demands that vie for our attention. It invites us to slow down, discover what is most important to us and those around us and helps us decide in ways our ego, pride, fear, or sense of scarcity could never do.

And, I think there is so much truth in that quote. When you use joy as your compass, it may not always guide you to the most comfortable, popular, or painless decisions. The power of Joy is more profound than that. Through joy, you can transcend to places where life can happen intentionally, and you can become the best version of yourself.

"But you will never know the impact of just deciding to act and using your heart to say, 'what would really help them right now' that I don't even need to ask to do." - Kate Schutt

Kate Schutt is an award-winning songwriter, singer, guitarist, and producer. She is also a life coach. In 2018, Schutt gave a TEDx talk, "A Grief Casserole." Kate Schutt is the rarest of combinations… brilliance and humility, wisdom and curiosity, creativity and intellect. Each on its own is a gift; in combination, extraordinary.

“Kate’s newest album Bright Nowhere is the ultimate reveal with storytelling so emotionally raw and honest, yet, truly inspirational in its humanity and musicality.” -Kevin Killen, eight-time Grammy-winning producer.

Our conversation ranged far and wide, covering everything from the background on why NPR calls her voice “glassily clear and glossily sweet,” the secrets to true fulfillment in life, to the best gift you can possibly give someone.

Where You Invest Your Love You Invest Your Life EP 104

Where You Invest Your Love You Invest Your Life EP 104

February 4, 2022

"In these bodies, we will live. In these bodies, we will die. And where you invest your love, you invest your life." - Mumford & Sons. This is one of the most potent lyrics the band has ever written, inspiring this podcast episode.

I believe this quote is about self-love and finding out about yourself and who you are. When we learn to love ourselves, we also express love to others more powerfully and intentionally. You can alter the way you see things, and it is your self-love that helps you become the best version of yourself.

In this episode, I take this lyric and define what self-love is and why it is essential. I explore the differences between healthy and unhealthy self-love and provide several examples of self-love that you can recognize in your own life. I use the stories of Asiya and Melissa to illustrate how they overcame their situations to find self-love and the change that it brought about. I then go into three ways to learn self-love and why it can be challenging. Lastly, I unpack five habits you can implement to encourage self-love and my final thoughts. 

Thank you for listening to this Passion Struck Podcast episode on how to self-love yourself. 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. Your comments are my oxygen, so please take a second and say 'Hey' ;).

Oluneye Oluwole On: Why You Should Reach For Your Dreams EP 103

Oluneye Oluwole On: Why You Should Reach For Your Dreams EP 103

February 1, 2022

Imagine realizing you were in a relationship devaluing you and your gifts?

You spiraled down to the lowest depths of your life.

You had to take a brutal look at yourself and those things you allowed to happen because you lived life to please others, but not satisfy YOURSELF.

And then recovering and rediscovering who YOU are as a result? You started to look at your life as saying yes to opportunities. And taking that step means doors opening, and those doors leading you to a higher calling of whom you are meant to be and how you're meant to impact your world.

👇 THIS is the Oluneye Oluwole Story. 

In this episode, John R. Miles is joined by Oluneye Oluwole, a serial entrepreneur, multi-sector entrepreneurship incubator, relationship builder, and administrator with a passion for economic empowerment, leadership, and sustainable development.

How Your Environment Influences Who You Become EP 102

How Your Environment Influences Who You Become EP 102

January 28, 2022

Our environment continually influences our lives, our decision-making process, and how we interact with the world around us. In psychology, there is a concept known as 'the social multiplier effect' based on the principle that high levels of one attribute or behavior amongst one's peers can have spillover effects on an individual.

In today's episode, John discusses this social multiplier effect and how your environment influences who you become.
