Ep 083 - Not Everyone Can Be An Oak Tree

Ep 083 - Not Everyone Can Be An Oak Tree

When you do something — anything at all — for a long time and you’re passionate about it, there’s a tendency to expect others to do it too. Because it’s become routine for you, and you’re comfortable with it, it can be hard to imagine that may not be the case for everyone. Rather than always being the one speaking, be sure to listen as well.

”Not everyone can be an oak tree.” — Carol Hoover

Being consistent dictates results, but of course it’s easy to be consistent with something that you’re good at and you enjoy doing. Learning to get comfortable in uncomfortable situations keeps us humble and more relatable — strengthening our relationships. Realizing where others are coming from takes understanding, awareness, and an ego check.

Ep 078 - You Cannot Control Everything

Ep 078 - You Cannot Control Everything

Contrary to what many other podcasts similar to ours are telling you — YOU CAN’T CONTROL CERTAIN THINGS. A trending topic these days seems to be people telling you things such as “Take control of your life!” and “You’re in control of what happens, so take charge!”

While these people are attempting to empower and embolden you — what they’re really doing is setting you up to fall harder when circumstances strike.

Saying you are in control is simply not true. Don’t misunderstand. We are big proponents of energy. In other words, if you work on being positive you’ll see more good things in your life. Alternatively, if you’re a negative person you’ll see a lot of negativity showing up in your world. Either way, things in life are thrown at you — things that you have no control over.

  • Life is a fight — show up and take it on

  • Life isn't as pretty as some would make it out to be

  • What you CAN control is how you choose to handle what you’re dealt

  • Why it’s important to have a support system of faith, family, and friends

  • Why it’s important to maintain a strong mind, a strong body, and a strong spirit

We have no control as to whether or not you are going to SUBSCRIBE to our podcast! All we can do is tell you here are some of the places you can: Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts

Ep 070 - The Ten Rules for Fighting

Ep 070 - The Ten Rules for Fighting

Sensei Steve Turoscy joins us to share the 10 Rules for Fighting he has devised over the years. Not only do these principles apply to the martial arts, but to everyday life, as the case is with all discussions on the show. Listen and hear how these universal concepts played a major role in helping Steve combat adversity a few years ago.

The 10 Rules for Fighting:

  1. Always be in control.

  2. When anger arises, think of the consequences.

  3. Master the basics and you will be a good fighter.

  4. Technique before speed — not speed without technique.

  5. You can’t think and hit at the same time.

  6. If an attacker is within striking distance, then so are you.

  7. Even a poor chess player will sometimes make a remarkable move.

  8. Train like you fight and fight like you train.

  9. You cannot be a good fighter if you are always afraid of what might happen.

  10. Be diverse — set yourself up for success.

Ep 069 - Book Recommendation​: The Takeover

Ep 068 - Book Recommendation: The Takeover

The Takeover is a book that will help you program your thoughts and actions to perform at your highest level. In this episode authors George “GK” Koufalis and Brad A Modrich join Tim Hoover and Steve Mittman to share a few of their top 20 essential ingredients that highly successful people utilize. Similar to Attack Life, Not Others — these gentlemen are on a mission to help others live a more productive and fulfilling life. Their book is very easy to read and certainly holds its own in the self-help and self-development category. We strongly recommend reading The Takeover and listening to this inspiring podcast episode. It is jam packed with “golden nuggets” that will lead you to “success files” — some of which include:

Be sure to listen straight through to the end for Brad and GK’s incredible “wake-up calls!”

“You can't go back and start a new beginning but you can always change the ending!”

“Life is a series of choices and those choices create the life we live.” — The Takeover

Ep 065 - Live In The Moment

Ep 065 - Live In The Moment, Steve Mittman, Tim Hoover, Bernie Garber

If you’re going to listen to only one episode, this might be the one to “reset” the way you view your life. Our guest — Life Coach, Dr Bernie — explains how the only true reality is the present moment. Hear why he says every moment of every day is your chance to be “reborn.” He shares his “closet story” along with what he’s determined to be our purpose here on earth. Other key takeaways include:

  • The importance of being a good soul and helping others

  • If there’s something you don’t like about yourself — you can change — right now

  • Why most of us don't know how to activate what we already have in our possession

  • Once you learn to activate your innate knowledge you will understand your existence

  • Time is an illusion; you can’t hold on to anything; all you have is the moment — and in that moment you can change

  • The past is gone, it’s in the “quicksand of time” — it holds nothing over you, and has no relevance other than memories

  • Everybody makes mistakes; the beauty of living in the moment is those mistakes are in the past; learn from them and move on — because you have no other choice anyway

Do you have any suggestions or ways you’ve found that help you be more “in the moment?”

Ep 064 - Never Stop Expanding

Ep 064 - Never Stop Expanding, Steve Mittman, Tim Hoover

Previously we’ve talked about the connection between fear and courage along with the importance of getting comfortable in an uncomfortable situation. Today Tim and Steve talk about the recent competition Steve took part in — the results, thoughts on it, and what we all can take from it. Key takeaways from their discussion include:

  • You cannot expand unless you root

  • One also needs depth of root (depth of experience) in order to expand

  • Never stop expanding — experiences, friendships, knowledge, relationships, love, etc

  • When you have to engage and move forward you can't fall back — you must root first and then move forward
