Podcast: 43 Fate Favors the Bold with Richard Paul Evans

Podcast: 43 Fate Favors the Bold with Richard Paul Evans

This is a story worth hearing.

 

You’ve likely heard of Richard’s bestselling book, The Christmas Box. But the story behind how it came to be, how Richard became the incredibly successful author that he is, and how he has followed his purpose is incredible.

When Richard Paul Evans wrote the #1 global best-seller, The Christmas Box, he never intended on becoming an internationally known author. Three years later, this quiet, simple story of parental love and the true meaning of Christmas made history when it became simultaneously the #1 hardcover and paperback book in the nation.

Since then, more than 8 million copies of The Christmas Box have been printed. Seven of Evans’s books were produced into television movies and have starred such well-known actors as Maureen O’Hara, Rob Lowe, Christopher Lloyd, James Earl Jones, Naomi Watts and Academy award winners Vanessa Redgrave and Ellen Burstyn. He has since written more than 35 consecutive New York Times bestsellers and is one of the few authors in history to have hit both the fiction and non-fiction bestseller lists.  There are currently more than 30 million copies of his books in print.

During the fall of 1998, Evans founded The Christmas Box International, an organization devoted to maintaining emergency shelters and providing services and resources for abused, neglected or homeless children, teens and young adults. To date, more than 85,000 children have been served by the Christmas Box House facilities and programs.

 

 
In this conversation we talk about what is possible when we choose to be the best at what we do, when we take the chance, and when we let ourselves be bold.

 

“If you want to be a bestselling author, there’s an empty seat, go take it.”

Podcast: EP 42 Talking Love + Relationships with Arielle Ford

Let’s talk about love.

 

This is a topic that we all think about but we don’t always know how to move forward towards our goals. That’s why I invited a dear friend, Arielle Ford, to talk to us about soulmates, relationships, love, and conscious dating.

Arielle Ford is a leading personality in the personal growth and contemporary spirituality movement. For the past 30 years she has been living, teaching, and promoting consciousness through all forms of media. She is a celebrated love and relationship expert, author, speaker, and is the co-creator and host of Evolving Wisdom’s Art of Love series. Her mission is to help women Find Love, Keep Love and Be Love.

Arielle has been called “The Cupid of Consciousness” and “The Fairy Godmother of Love.” She lives in La Jolla, CA with her husband/soulmate, Brian Hilliard and their feline friends.

 
In this conversation we talk about what love is (and isn’t), what a soulmate is, how to rethink your current mindset about your ability to be loved, and so much more.

 

“Love is a behavior. A decision. An action. A way of being.”

Podcast: EP 40 Waiting Is a Dream Stealer

Podcast: EP 40 Waiting Is a Dream Stealer

Let’s go for it.

 

I’m talking straight to your heart today. It’s time to go for the next step. Take action. The time for waiting on that thing you’ve been wanting to do for so long is over. It’s time to go for it.

I’m celebrating the 1 year anniversary of the podcast and with that, I’m thinking about how grateful I am that I finally launched the show 1 year ago. Truth be told, I had put it off for 2 years, even though I knew I wanted to do it. And now these past 40 episodes are out in the world, because I stopped waiting. And it’s time for you to stop waiting too. Let’s go for it.

Am I willing to take imperfect action to achieve my goals?

Podcast: EP 39 Personality Isn’t Permanent with Dr. Ben Hardy

Podcast: EP 39 Personality Isn’t Permanent with Dr. Ben Hardy

Have you ever wondered if you can’t change?

 

I am bringing back one of my earliest podcast guests for a second episode because he just wrote a new book and it is so good. If you remember Episode 4 about willpower, you’ll know that Benjamin Hardy is someone worth listening to.

Dr. Benjamin Hardy is an organizational psychologist and bestselling author of Willpower Doesn’t Work and Personality Isn’t Permanent.

His blogs have been read by over 100 million people and are featured on Harvard Business ReviewNew York Times, Forbes, Fortune, CNBC, Cheddar, and many others. He is a regular contributor to Inc. and Psychology Today and from 2015-2018, he was the #1 writer in the world on Medium.com.

 
 
 
He and his wife Lauren adopted three children through the foster system in February 2018 and, one month later, Lauren became pregnant with twins, who were born in December of 2018. They live in Orlando.
 
 
In this conversation we dive deep into the myths versus truths about how much our personality impacts who we are and what we do. Ben teaches us wisdom about how to make powerful choices about our future self, how to become who we want to be, and how to view our personality as an asset instead of a limitation.

 

“A person’s view of their own future is the strongest indicator of who they are.”
