70. Q+A: HOW I SUBMIT FEAR.

This weeks episode is a Q+A with a powerful question we can all use support from at times in our lives.

The question asked is:

"What are your tools + process you use to stay focused and on track when fear arises on your path?"

Fear is such a MAJOR emotion, experience and subject so it was a big answer to tackle but I love a good challenge many of you already know!

I believe some if not all, that I share in this episode as my answer to this question, will be supportive to anyone who faces fear in uncertain times and will keep you in charge of the emotion. 

Enjoy!

69. SOLOSODE: 5 POWERFUL MID-YEAR CHECKIN QUESTIONS FOR ENHANCING PROGRESS, INTERNALLY + EXTERNALLY.

IMG_0070.PNG

Happy 1/2 way through 2019 badasses!

In the latest Solosode, I share 5 powerful questions I use to checkIN with mySelf to support higher INternal + external progress through the remainder of the year. 

While it’s commonly suggested to check in with the progress we are making towards the goals we set for ourselves within it at the start of the year (AKA the EXTERNAL aspects of our life); I employ a different checkIN focus for advancing my progress and performance in the year. 

These 5 thought-provoking questions focus on the INternal happenings within mySelf + in my experience offer a much more powerful, holistic approach to generating more progress + higher performances towards our goals.

Whatever we are feeling, thinking + focusing on within IS directly impacting our external progress + performance. It ALWAYS starts from withIN.

I loved creating this episode (even with stuffy sinuses haha) + I trust it will offer some support for you to elevate your self-awareness, self-connection + your ability to CRUSH your desired goals as we move through the bottom half of 2019.

Enjoy!

63. EMILY HAYDEN: FUELED BY ADVERSITY, BEING RELENTLESS, PURSING A LIFE OF EXCELLENCE

IMG_6655.PNG

Emily Hayden is A lot of inspiring things. 

  • She is Fitness + lifestyle influencer 

  • An IFBB Bikini Pro competitor

  • A YouTube Vlogger 

  • A Podcast host to her show of Evolve with Emily 

  • An online trainer, coach + fitness model 

And above all, she is a relentless pursuer in creating a Life of Excellence.


I first discovered Emily on my friend Lisa Bilyeu’s Woman of Impact show and was immediately drawn a few things about Emily while listening to her talk on Lisa’s panel. For one, I was inspired by the powerful story of how she climbed out of some serious childhood adversity into becoming the successful entrepreneur she is today. I was equally inspired by the authenticity I felt in her presence as she shared her empowered mental framework that supported her to get through all of her adversity’s and become the resilient woman she is on a mission to support others to create a life of excellence.


I want to share a quote I found from her that I feel really touches on the power of her mindset:
There is no “end” for me. Every time I reach a goal, I start my journey towards a new goal. 99% of life is in the “journey” stage. 1% is the time when the goal is achieved, then you start back at 0 towards the new goal. That’s why I believe it’s so important to enjoy the journey and enjoy the process every step of the way.

Emily Hayden is MY kinda girl all the way. She’s that ALL IN, I can do better, Appreciate the ENTIRE process kinda girl who is creating her life from a place of pure passion, faith + authenticity.  

Some powerful takeaways from this episode are:

  • Turning adversities into fuel to succeed

  • Embracing life’s seasons; how to ride the hard ones out with strength 

  • Transferring wins the gym into wins in business 

  • Turning your passions into your enterprise 

  • Why staying authentic in your pursuits breeds great success in the long game

  • The power of discipline and how to utilize it for success

  • Giving yourself the chance to succeed by NOT being afraid to fail 

  • Turning up your mental resilience and taking the quit out of you

  • Pursuing a life of excellence 


I am so excited to share this conversation with all of you because I have NO doubt it will leave you feeling mentally elevated to go after or KEEP pursuing what it is you truly want to create in your life, starting with WHO you are- it will service the inspirational fuel that takes the QUIT out of you. 

Enjoy!

61. AJA DANG: DISCOVERING YOUR PASSIONS, CREATING YOUR BEST SELF, KEEPIN IT REAL ON SOCIAL MEDIA + IN LIFE.

IMG_5593.PNG


AJA DANG is an American TV host turned lifestyle blogger who has a genuine passion for supporting others to become their best selves. 

Aja comes from a background in Broadcast Journalism of over 13 years. She worked with major companies such as Fox, the NFL Network, Maxim Magazine and the Hollywood Reporter.

It’s not easy to depart from a secure career life like that and dive into the very uncertain and highly competitive arena of Social Media as an Influencer but Aja pulled it off both successfully with over 800,000+ in her growing community AND she’s done it staying true to herself and her passions.

 She channels the knowledge and experience she gained from those earlier chapters of career life and infuses it all with her love for natural beauty and self growth- all of which create the killer content in her YouTube videos.  

Aja and I met at a beauty event for Burts Bees a few years ago and we immediately hit it off.  There were a lot of commonalities between us, our passion for natural beauty, wellness, Hawaii being homes to us both but the dominating connection above all was that we both knew we were exchanging with someone who is truly being their authentic self. 

What I love about Aja in addition to how she keeps it so real and especially as a Social Media Influencer, is that the content she creates is legitimately valuable and fun to absorb.  She is quirky, funny, smart, sexy and she cares about the ways at which she can support her community to truly create a life they love, that feels great and is true to who they really are.

A few highlights you will learn from Aja’s experience in this episode are:

  • Navigating through the discovery process of your desired career path

  • How to get clear on which career path to choose

  • What helped to break free of outside opinions and trying to fit into a “category”

  • What was useful to apply for strength and courage when facing very uncertain times in her career

  • How she found herself in massive college debt and what she learned from it

  • Getting out of massive college debt and sharing her entire process via her YouTube channel

  • The value in operating from Authenticity in life and through your Social Media channels

  • How utilizing Visualization supports her to achieve her goals

  • Why being responsible for your own happiness is a must

  • Being impactful by creating valuable content such as: how to get out of college debt or learning self-defense with #Jiu-Jitsu really helps to grow a genuine online community through your Social Media Channels.

This conversation is so much fun and especially great for those trying to learn how to navigate authentically through life and through the lens of Social Media. 

 Aja is simply DOPE.

Enjoy.

59. DR. GABRIELLE LYON: MUSCLE CENTRIC MEDICINE, UNDERSTANDING PROTEIN + OPTIMIZING HEALTH FROM BODY + MIND TO CRUSH AT LIFE.

Dr. Gabrielle Lyon is an Elite Performance, Functional Physician who focuses her practice around "muscle centric medicine" and is an expert in optimizing metabolic health + longevity and body composition. 

Dr. Lyon's approach is integrative using her extensive knowledge +  cutting edge science through comprehensive labs, metabolic + genetic testing, nutritional science AND behavioral action.

 In other words: She knows how to fortify the health of both body + mind.  

Dr Lyon has been on a REAL PATH to lead her to be the renowned doctor that she is, since discovering her passion for medicine from the young age of 17 starting by watching her godmother who was one of the original leaders in nutritional science + functional medicine, Liz Lipski. 

She was a semifinalist in Fitness America, a professional fitness model + a nationally ranked figure competitor, which I believe gives her an extra edge in her practice that not only focuses on optimizing health but equally focuses on OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE.

I was so excited to get her on the podcast IMMEDIATELY upon discovering her and taking a deep dive into her work.

We talked all things related to:

  • Muscle health

  • Metabolism

  • And a FULL breakdown on Protein from:

  • The different types of protein

  • Protein timing + muscle protein synthesis

  • The amounts of protein needed for optimal health

  • Why protein is the most important macro to focus on for health optimization, longevity + body composition.

  • Mindset: She shares some of the most foundational common threads in the incredible mental frame works of her elite + high performing patients. 

I LOVED my talk with Gabrielle.

Not only is her extensive knowledge and proven approach to optimizing health impressive but I equally appreciate the empowered mindset and strong, authentic character that is easily detectable in her exchange + delivery.

I highly recommend following this powerful woman on SM: @drgabriellelyon + signing up for her newsletter via her website: www.drgabriellelyon.com where she also offers her Lyon Protocol a guide to help reset your metabolism, lower whole body inflammation and balancing your blood sugar. Major.

And overall, I recommend staying connected to Dr Lyon’s voice to anyone who wants to continuously turn your best into better- and thats pretty much everyone who listens to this podcast.

The recording quality is a little sub-optimal being that it was done via the web but this is one of much more to come with her on the podcast and I cannot wait for the next already.

Enjoy!

58. SOLOSODE: "SPRING CLEANING " TECHNIQUE FOR MORE CLARITY + EFFECTIVENESS IN YOUR PERFORMANCE TO ACHIEVE + ACCOMPLISH YOUR GOALS.

IMG_4316 2.PNG

I love Spring.

It’s all about refreshing life + new beginnings.

It’s also the 3rd month into the year and I work in 3 month sprints throughout the year, taking a break at the end of each sprint to evaluate progress made towards the goals that were made at the start of each sprint + how things FEEL in all the major pillars of life:

  • Self: health/fitness/interconnection goals

  • Relationships: partners + friendships

  • Business

  • Home life

  • Finances

I utilize this technique from a NON judgemental approach to learn + to measure where I am in relation to where I want to be via my ideals, goals + set visions within all of these major pillars.

It’s very supportive to give you more clarity which furthers your ability to be more effective with your performance on the pursuit to actualize your goals/visions within each of these Life Pillars.

AND it’s a very valuable tool to assess your dominating emotional state that you’ve been living from throughout your process which is just as important as achieving/accomplishing your goals.

Personally, I rely on this technique + utilize it 4 times through the year to continue making inner + external advancements. And it works.

I believe that TRUE wealth + success in life means we are nourishing, investing, fortifying and expanding in BOTH intrinsic via the intangibles + extrinsic via the tangibles. In other words:

I want it ALL- don’t you? :)

Enjoy!

IMG_2236.PNG

Mike Saffaie is an elite + highly revered Strength & Conditioning coach to high performing athletes with some names under his resume such as, UFC fighters Cara Esparza, Anderson Silva, Ferbricio Werdum, + Brain
”T-City” Ortega to name a few. In addition to training pro atheltes, he’s been an award winning private trainer for over two decades now.

His unique approach to training stems from the mental landscape of an engineer. He designs all of his training methods from a methodical and intelligent strategies that advance body mechanics, strength and speed- all of which have been proven to be effective.

Fitness in many facets has been a life long passion of Mike Saffaie.

It’s in his DNA and when you look at the physique of this life time athlete who is an ALL natural, IFBB PRO + PNBA competitor, it’s hard to disagree. Like his training skills, his abs have legitimately won their own awards too. No joke.

He’s been training Brasilian JiuJitsu for over 13 years and officially received his Black Belt under Ryron + Rener Gracie out of Gracie University in Torrance California.

Above all of those amazing accomplishments and high honors, what I am MOST proud of is that fact that I get to call Mike Saffaie MY brother.

Most know my brother for his passion for fitness + movement, his physical talents, competitive wins and his career status but the deeper you get to know Mike, you quickly learn he equally loves using his mind through philosophy, intellectual arguments/debates, critical thinking and logical reasoning.

He completely CRUSHES the usual perception of the “gym guy with muscles” who would prefer to listen to an intellectual argument on Free Will vs watch Sunday night football.

Aside from his love for body + mind, Mike is known as one of the realist + kindest guys around.

As his sister, one year apart in age (he’s my baby brother hehe) I can honestly say, he’s one of the most curious humans I’ve ever met, what you see is what you get with my brother: i.e. he’s as real as it gets and he has the biggest heart that is fiercely loyal that which he loves.

In this very special episode you will learn:

  • His competition mindset

  • What drives him to compete

  • The challenges in learning how to “get better and better”

  • Seeking challenges to discover more of himself and his capabilities to beat them

  • How he utilizes aggression for progress and why he believes leaning into it can support wins

  • Why he feels resiliency is essential to survival and how he tests his own levels of resiliency

  • Why he prefers short term goals over resolutions

  • His self-talk when training an being challenged

  • How his early childhood exposed his mind to it’s reaction ability

  • His views on” Life moving towards us” vs “Life happening for us”

  • Being hyper vigilant, growing up with ADHAD and dealing with anxiety

  • How his specific style of Jiu-Jitsu led him to create his patented grip strengthening device, The Grapple Grip™

  • What makes fighters and MMA unique to other athletes and his approach to training them

  • How he creates future videos taking to himself and why

  • The power of motivating yourself by speaking out loud as a performance tool

  • The bravest thing he’s done in his life to date

  • Why he does not carry negative emotional weight from his childhood adversities

  • The one constant in his life that gives him confidence

  • HIs “ALL IN” mentality + approach to his work

  • What’s inspiring him currently and projects he currently working on

  • What he loves especially about training women + how his upbringing influenced his relationship to empowered women

This episode will definitely pull you into deep thought and get your inner champion fired up at the same time.

49. SOLOSODE: TIPS ON HOW TO LIVE "AGELESSLY" + FEEL AGELESS.

IMG_1782 2.JPG

The concept of aging as we know it is OLD.

I firmly believe the mindset behind “aging” needs to be revamped because it is NOT the only way to live out our increasing chronological years anymore + in the latest BlackBeltBeauty Episode, I’m tearing into the NEW model of aging, offering tips on how we can live expressing ourselves “agelessly” from body to spirit for the majority of our lives.

This episode was actually inspired by the recent Instagram Challenge that’s been going around massively called the #10yearchallenge - A challenge that reveals how you’ve aged in the past 10 years.

There’s no denying that we all age + will eventually depart from our living Being but we are now living in a time where we can CHOOSE how we want to age by way our daily choices that make up our lifestyle.

We have the option of how we age ourselves:

Fast + hard by promoting the body + spirit to deteriorate in the early decades of life.

or

We can extend our healthspan + carry a youthful, almost “ageless” appearance that stems from having a “younger” biological clock that beats our chronological years, paired with a SPIRIT that exudes that one of who does not get “old.”

Personally, I love that we own the CHOICE of how we wish to age ourselves by way of actions and I absolutely LOVE living lifestyle that allows me the dismiss the OLD model of aging + truly feel AGELESS as I live my days out with all of my heart.

I hope this episode offers inspiration with lifestyle/mindset tips that resonate that will support you to start or to continue doing, the same in yours.

Enjoy ❤️
