We discuss Gallaudet's experience at the U.S. Naval Academy, and how that shaped the future leader he would become. Why some of his biggest lessons were learned from his time competitive swimming. What it means to be the Oceanagropher of the U.S. Navy and what that entails. His experience leading the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Some of the major initiatives he oversaw. The importance of the Blue Ocean Economy initiative and his focus on climate change, sustainable fishing, and preserving coral reefs. We discuss Tim's leadership principles and lastly his upcoming book Holding Fast in Heavy Seas.

What is the Key to Healthy Esteem? EP 116

What is the Key to Healthy Esteem? EP 116

March 18, 2022

At some point in our lives, we've all had times when we felt inadequate and imperfect about ourselves, whether due to a physical flaw or how we perceive ourselves. And the majority of the things we are doing to try to raise our self-esteem are entirely incorrect.

However, by recognizing that we always have the freedom and power to choose how situations in life will affect us, we can rise above challenges and build healthy esteem and self-love for ourselves. Whenever we have the self-confidence to solve issues on the inside, we set ourselves up for success.

In this episode, I will tell the inspiring story of Lizzie Velasquez and use her account to teach the things that do work so that you can apply them in your own life to get those lasting changes on the inside and create healthy self-esteem.

Kate Eckman On: You Are Powerful Enough EP 115

March 15, 2022

Kate Eckman is a keynote speaker, author, leadership development, and performance coach. Kate has interviewed some of the world's most prominent newsmakers as a broadcast journalist, from President Barack Obama to Angelina Jolie; serving as the face of multiple global beauty brands as a TV presenter and personality, and working for some of the biggest names in the fashion industry as a professional model. Her book, The Full Spirit Workout, has garnered widespread accolades and is available at all major booksellers.

John R Miles sits down with Kate on the Passion Struck podcast to discuss why you are powerful enough to do anything you set your mind to accomplish. She became an academic all-American swimmer at Penn State and what that experience taught her. When we take care of our inner world, our outer world takes care of itself. How to shed one's inner baggage. We discuss how the suicide of two people close to her led to her book the Full Spirit Workout. We discuss the ten steps she outlines, and we end by talking about winning the game plan and why it is so important to ditch superficial for granular.

The Science and Traits that Promote Curiosity - John R. Miles EP 114

The Science and Traits that Promote Curiosity - John R. Miles EP 114

March 11, 2022

The majority of the novel discoveries and incredible innovations throughout history, from the printing press to airplanes to landing on the moon, all have something in common: They are the result of curiosity.

The instinct to pursue new knowledge and adventures and explore untried possibilities is a fundamental human characteristic vital to our personal development. When our curiosity is activated, we think more profoundly and rationally about decisions and develop more creative solutions. But what is the science behind curiosity, what are its advantages, and how can we create it in our own life. All questions we will answer in this episode on the science and traits that promote curiosity.

The Key to Enjoying a Rewarding Life is Shared Experiences EP 112

The Key to Enjoying a Rewarding Life is Shared Experiences EP 112

March 4, 2022

Noel Gallager said, "I don't live to work; I work to live." I first heard this expression when I was living in Spain, and a Spanish friend told me that, "you Americans live to work, while we Spaniards work to live." As I look back, I should have listened closer to my friend's wise words because they are the keys to living a rewarding life.

In this episode, I discuss the story of Kai-Fu Lee and the experiences of Australian author Bronnie Ware. I use these stories to discuss why experiences are the keys to enjoying a rewarding life, not the pursuit of possessions. I describe the scientific benefits of experiences and how you can relate this to your own journey of intentionality.

You work to live, not live to work. Work on what brings you happiness. The tools from today's episode ought to be helpful for anyone looking to understand how to create a rewarding life.

Michael Anthony On: Take Daily Action to Improve Your Life EP 111

Michael Anthony On: Take Daily Action to Improve Your Life EP 111

March 1, 2022

Michael Anthony is the author of the best-selling book Think Unbroken and is a coach, mentor, and educator for adult survivors of child abuse. Michaels spends his time helping other survivors get out of "The Vortex" to become the hero of their own story and take their life back. Michael hosts the Think Unbroken podcast, teaches at Think Unbroken Academy, and is on a mission to create change in the world.

John R. Miles sits down with Michael Anthony to talk about how he was born to a hyper-abusive drug addict mother who cut his finger off at four years old, a stepfather you pray you never have, and a racist grandmother that pushed him into an identity crisis. By the time he was 9, his family was in poverty and often homeless, while being a Mormon Church member. At twelve, he was adopted by his grandmother and quickly turned to drugs and alcohol to survive the continuing abuse. Michael discusses how he found success in Corporate America in his early twenties. However, success only made things worse. Michael was morbidly obese, high and drunk daily, and ultimately self-sabotaging everything around him. We discover how he found self-love, and he altered the course of his life. Michael provides advice on how you too can take daily action to improve your life.

Strengthening Your Relationship With Your Best Self - John R. Miles EP 110

Strengthening Your Relationship With Your Best Self - John R. Miles EP 110

February 25, 2022

Over the years, I have come to a much deeper connection with myself. It is the most important relationship I can have—the one true constant in my life. I have learned that everything that happens in my life for good or bad is based on my reflection with myself and becoming my greatest self.

In this episode, I tell a parable to illustrate why your relationship with yourself is the foundation for everything. I then use this example to discuss how to discover your best self, grow into the best version of yourself, and strengthen your relationship with your best self.

All that we do in life is a testimony to our inner self and our relationship with ourselves. The people you impact or don't, the job you love or don't, those in your life you love or don't, the acts of service you do or don't, are all created by the relationship we have with ourselves.

The tools from today's episode ought to be helpful for anyone looking to become their best self.

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.
