And can expect to live a hard, miserable existence absent of purpose, fulfillment and happiness. If WE don’t stop this epidemic - no one will. In Episode 76, Chris is in rare form!

Stress is unavoidable, so it is critical we take action to manage stress, so it does not break us down.

The Addiction You Need to Kill
We all have goals and dreams... Something we want to become... A place we want to reach... The quickest way to guarantee that none of those things ever happen is to have a victim mindset! In fact, whether we realize it or not, a victim mindset is fueled exclusively by the excuses of the person who possesses it. Excuses can sometimes be true statements, may seem harmless and even justified at times... But excuses destroy our life. They deplete our confidence, self esteem, self worth and completely cut off any chance for growth in any area of life. Excuses, blaming, complaining, feeling sorry for yourself and the victim mindset all have one thing in common... They will never, and have never brought you closer to your goals or dreams. In episode 70, Chris dives into his own life experiences with the victim mindset. He gets brutally honest about how dangerous it is and shares the steps people can take to permanently free themselves from its destructive nature, so they can reclaim control of their life! Enjoy and be sure to share with a friend who would get value from listening.

How to BulletProof Your 2021 New Years Resolution
Happy New Year! We say that today, but will it really be an actual happy new year in the literal sense? One filled with growth, health, wealth and prosperity? Or... Will it be one filled with failure, frustration, hardship and struggle? Unfortunately, 95% of people who make a New Years Resolution will either fail or quit their resolution by January 15th. A disturbing and shocking reality the research has objectively discovered. With the horror show that was 2020 now behind us, the importance of creating momentum at the start of the year and having a positive outlet to focus on has perhaps never been more important, if not essential to the quality of our lives! There are those that bash New Years Resolutions and those who make them - but a more productive mindset would be to view any “excuse” for positive change as an opportunity. ...one that should be celebrated, embraced and fully taken advantage of! With 2021 upon us, we have an opportunity to start the New Year off by making a Resolution... ...whether it be to get healthier, lose some weight, start waking up earlier to go workout, or just creating better habits that will directly contribute to our personal & professional development. Habits that will help us move forward, grow and unlock our true potential. Many opt out of making New Years Resolutions due to past failures and the painful association they’ve now developed with Resolutions and the goal setting process in general. But the fact is, YOU have a responsibility to not just set, but absolutely crush your goals, every year, year after year for as long as you live. ...and the New Year provides a unique opportunity to make that happen. But how you set goals matters - and the reason why so many people will fail their resolutions this year and years to come, is because they did not address or identify the single most important element & MANDATORY prerequisite of the goal setting process... In today’s episode Chris shares with you a short but massively impactful message that identifies the part of the goal setting process people F up that leads to failure and 4 incredibly impactful, practical action steps that will essentially GUARANTEE a successful outcome with your 2021 New Years Resolution! You don’t want to miss this!
