Your greatest career success is going to come through relationships.

Your overall life satisfaction is going to be greatly effected through relationships.

So how do we do a better job building new relationships and strengthening current relationships? 

How do we shift from "networking" to this much more meaningful way in building strategic relationships.

Listen as author and speaker...

You are more than the visible outcome of your work.

And the outcome of your work might be more than what is currently visible.

If we thought about failure like THIS, it will change everything.

Listen to today's episode to hear more.

You can read more about this as well in my new book 25 Lies Twentysomethings Need to Stop Believing.

If you don't figure this ONE THING out, pursuing your dream is going to be a real struggle.

Pursuing your dream will be riddled with much more sacrifice than sexiness. That's okay. That's how it's supposed to be.

Yet, when you're sacrificing for a "must", for a "have-to", for something you can not, NOT do, the sacrifice doesn't feel sacrificial at all. Actually t...

What if our pursuit of happiness is all wrong?

What if our pursuit of happiness is the exact thing that's keeping us most unhappy?

Here’s what I think is the truth: The more we pursue happiness, the less happy we’re going to be.

Is happiness a product we should pursue?

Or is happiness a product of something else? Can we seek happiness unto itself? Or is happiness a natural byproduct when w...

"Success in your twenties and thirties is more about what you're planting in the ground then it is about what you're harvesting." -  via 25 Lies Twentysomethings Need to Stop Believing

How do you consistently keep planting seeds even when you don't feel like it?

When you haven't seen much progress in awhile? When nothing seems to be growing as fast as you hoped it would?

No one can do what you do or be who you are.

Own it. Leverage it. And watch the returns pour in for years to come.

Keep changing by becoming more of who you were meant to be.

“I’ve missed my chance!” I've worked with too many twentysomethings who believe this lie.

I also spent too many years believing this lie myself.

In today's podcast, I jam-pack it with inspirational stories and lessons on why you haven't missed your chance in life.

One story I tell is of a twentysomething heavy metal rocker whose first album flopped. He was so discouraged that he’d lost hi...

If I'm being honest, this is a constant battle for me.

Stephen Pressfield in his book The War of Art called it "Resistance". I call it "The Liar".

The moment you start moving forward. The moment you start taking that chance. The moment you put yourself out there, the Liar is going to try and stop you. The Liar is going to try and convince you that you don't have what it takes.

I don't want to embarrass myself. I'm pretty afraid of it actually.

But in this story I embarrassed myself in a completely different way. 

As more of an introvert than extrovert, my wife can attest that getting me to do something too social, too out-there, is like trying to give a cat a bath.

So over the years I've figured out the only way NOT to embarrass myself. But honestly, I don&apo...

“All you need is love” is a lie. 

This first episode might be a little controversial because I think saying “I love you” should not be the peak of relationship seriousness. Because for one, it’s really easy to say I love you to someone you don’t really know. 

I think we’ve gotten love all wrong and it’s messing up our expectations of what it means to have a healthy relationship. 

We talk about falling in love like we’re powe...
