FLY 110 | Vernon Maxxwell | If You Can't Be Real Then What The Hell Are You Doing?

   

Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings Is Finding Something That Makes You Want To Get Up Everyday. - Vernon Maxxwell

What’s up FLY Fam®!

Today’s FLY guest is Vernon Maxxwell and he’s a man on a quest is to document 10,000 intimate conversations that move humanity forward by 1%. That’s FLY. I reached out to Vernon on Instagram about coming on and we set-up the date.

Vernon and I had a great convo. He even called it one his 10,000 intimate conversations that move humanity forward by 1%. You’ll see why once you listen to this episode, but if you like fake stuff and are closed-minded, this episode isn’t for you.

With that said, to get more of the inside scoop about Vernon, head on over to his website: http://vernonmaxxwell.com/.   

Introduction: The House with The White Picket Fence, 2.5 Kids, Dog, and Milf...

Vernon realized through experience that the house with the white picket fence, 2.5 kids, dog, and milf weren’t for him.

[5:10] WTF Have I Learned?

Costa Rica, graduating college, getting a job, and the loss of a friend.

 

[13:20] It’s Extremely Important To Surround Yourself With Allies

In order to get to where you want to be, your mindset has to change, your environment has to change, and the people you’re surrounded around has to change. Remember that rising tides raise ships.

[16:37] Why Do Any Of This? What’s The Point?

Incredible experiences. The good. The bad. The shitty. Going through all that, Vernon realized that the only way he could feel like his life mattered was if his life had a noble cause. The end game just can’t be about making money or hoarding things, information or knowledge. Vernon’s gift is to create. If you’re giving value to the world, the world has no choice but to give you what you need. Looking outside of yourself for validation is a void that can never be filled. When Vernon creates he feels good, and when someone says dude that changed my life, that’s a win. We never know the end result of what we did today, but it’s a compound effect. We need more positivity. There’s a sense of urgency. Somebody needs to get this, and if they don’t, it’s our fault.

[23:00] Be Uniquely You

No one can replicate your swag. The more you can authentically show up in the world and be exactly who you are, the easier it is for you to wake up everyday and do that thing. Be you and realize that others in your space are your allies.

[26:42] Blake Goes Off

This was the point of my realest moment ever on podcast, when I just stripped down my walls, I blaked-out, and expressed my soul in its truest form. Hearing it back brought tears to my eyes.

[32:20] The Matrix

Unplugging from reality takes time. For most people, it will take them their entire life to remove themselves from the falsehoods that they have been lead to believe. That’s why it’s our job to be that light. To that light in the world to exemplify what it feels like to wake up every morning and do the thing you love because that shit is contagious. When we’re willing to change, people are fascinated by that. They’re curious. It’s easier these days to live vicariously through other people’s lives than to take action.

If I don’t get started right now with what I have, I’ll never have the opportunity to grow. Create in obscurity to level up your content and popularity.

[40:00] Expectations

Expectations rob us of our joy.

[41:00] Vernon’s Journey with Yoga

There’s misconceptions with yoga in the USA, but it dates back 3,000 some odd years from India. Intro to yoga came from a message from a friend on Facebook and from that first class, he gained aligned and had major shifts that led him to where he’s at now. Journaling has been therapeutic for him. He learned that he didn’t have to walk around with that pain and suffering. We’re all soldiers of the same struggle. We’re not the only ones to suck at stuff.

[55:00] You Belong To The People When You’re Outside

Share you are. You who are is your gift. It’s your magic. You’ll find that artists do this often, when they put themselves in what would seemingly be vulnerable positions in their music. Don’t allow yourself to be chained by the things you are afraid to talk about. That will keep you chained down and in a prison you can’t even see.

[60:00] Three Things You Can Do Right Now To Get Congruent

  1. Get a pen and piece of paper and just write whatever comes you to mind. By getting whatever is in your head out on paper, you are creating space for yourself in your mind. Cool prompts to use would be: I am great because; or I am sad when; or I love doing…
  2. Be the light. It’s not hard. Walk outside your door today and smile and say to people.
  3. Be mindful of what’s going on around you. The environment and the people around you is important. What you’ll find, is that if you are able to change your environment and the people around you, you will be able to change your entire life.

[1:04:20] Vernon’s Definition of Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings

Finding that thing that lights you up. That everyday you would do, regardless if you’re paid to do it, and you feel deep down in your soul, that it’s not your passion, but it’s your purpose. You were sent here to fulfill that mission.

Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings Is Making Sure Your Soul Is Pure & Whole & Making Sure That Everything You’re Doing Is Inspiring To Those Around You. - Brandon Apollo

 

What’s up FLY Fam®!

 

Today’s FLY guest is Brandon Apollo and he’s a visual and musical artist that I saw on Instagram because of his Instagram Ad, and I thought that he looked like one badass dude Fulfilling HIS Life’s Yearnings, so I reached out to him to come on.

 

If you’ve noticed by now, I reach out to a lot of the guests that come on my show through Instagram because there are so many FLY People on there. It’s fucking incredible to me that something like this exists, and it gives me access to reach out to anybody around the world that uses the app and ask them to come on. They can say yes or no. The outcome doesn’t concern me because I can’t control that. I can control what I do though, which is in my circle of influence.

 

Anyways, stop distracting me you gorgeous FLY Muthafucka. Let’s get back to talking about this FLY Episode Brandon and I did together.

 

This was Brandon’s first time being a guest on a podcast and he shared with me when the show was over that he was nervous as hell. But allow me to let you in on a little secret. You ready for it? Of course you are you beautiful FLY You.

 

Brandon was fucking phenomenal.

 

But you’ll find that out for yourself soon enough.

You can follow Brandon here on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brandon.apollo/

Introduction: Journey To This Moment

 

His family has always been in fashion. His mom loved taking photos and has two full photo books at home. His older sister is a fashion designer. He didn’t get into modeling until a little bit later and when he got in, he had to change the game.

 

[4:30] How Long Brandon’s Been Modeling For and What He Does As A Freelance Model

One year. Freelance is working without an agency. He found the industry a little too competitive and hard to get ahead in unless you knew someone to help you get your foot in the door. And even with an agency, you’re still going to be putting in your own work on the side, more than the agencies will give you. Freelancing gives you a motion for direction and the space the for collaboration.

 

[8:30] Growing Pains of Modeling

 

Brandon shares what he had to overcome early on in his modeling career.

 

[12:00] Putting Money In Your Friend’s Pockets

 

Brandon talks connecting with his photographer friend and their relationship, as well as knowing your worth.

 

[14:00] Nothing’s Ever Free

 

Your worth is self-set. It’s something you need to determine.

 

[16:00] Being A Genuine Soul

 

Doing something for someone with expecting anything in return and how that impacts work that Brandon does.

 

[18:00] Where Brandon’s Inspiration For His Work Comes From

 

Instagram.

 

[20:00] The Resources Brandon Uses For His Creations and His Process For Creating

 

Started with iMovie and using his iPhone. Upgraded to a camera and uses FinalCut Pro.

 

[27:00] Brandon’s Musical Talents and Where His Inspiration Comes From

 

Music is more of his passion than modeling and is really taking his time making good content that anyone can enjoy. Is working with a team now and creating fire content.

[31:30] The Importance of Self-Education and Doing It Yourself

 

College for Brandon was a waste of time so he made the most of his time doing what served him well. And why he does things himself.

 

[37:30] What Is Happiness and The Book That Took Him Out A Dark State

 

Being grateful. You never know if it’s your last day. It’s about living in the moment.

 

The book: You Are Here by Thich Nhat Hanh

 

[42:30] Brandon’s Steps To Success

 

If there’s something you're passionate about, start working towards it. It helps to have short-term and long-term goals to guide you along the way. A day spent not creating is a day wasted.

 

[45:30] Follow Brandon on Instagram

 

@brandon.apollo

 

[46:20] Brandon’s Definition of Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings

 

Making sure that you’re soul is pure and whole and making sure that everything you’re doing kinda inspires everyone around you. Making sure that you’re happy and taking those goals towards being happy and making sure that you’re fulfilling these goals. If you’ve thought about it, you can definitely do them.

FLY 108 | Marielle Kehoe | Getting Diagnosed With Multiple Sclerosis Fueled Her Purpose and She Is Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings Because of It

November 22, 2017

FLY 108 | Marielle Kehoe | Getting Diagnosed With Multiple Sclerosis Fueled Her Purpose and She Is Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings Because of It

   

Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings Is Finding Something That Makes You Want To Get Up Every Day. - Marielle Kehoe

 

What’s up FLY Fam®!

 

Today’s FLY guest is Marielle Kehoe and she’s a Holistic Health Coach out of Brooklyn, New York. I reached out to her on Instagram about coming on because of the message in her content and she said she’d love to.

 

For a first time guest on the podcast, she was fantastic to talk with. And her story. Her story is incredible to listen to. You’ll find that out for yourself soon enough.

You can read more about Mariele on her website: https://www.mkwellness.co

Introduction: Defined Her Purpose Through Her Diagnosis

 

Marielle was your typical young twenty-something living in New York until an uncontrollable eye twitch made it necessary to go to the doctors, only to get some troubling news.

 

[3:10] Her Sister’s Words Sparked A Transformation In Her

 

Had a pity party for herself for a couple of years and dealt with her diagnosis the only way she knew how until the health message her older sister had been reiterating to her finally set in. She began to study nutrition shortly afterward and became a certified nutrition health coach.

 

[5:20] Marielle Launched MK Wellness

 

Encouraged to teach, Marielle Launched MK Wellness. She was blown away by the number of people that would ask her questions about health and nutrition. Because of her new diet and lifestyle, she hasn’t had a flare-up in 9 years.

 

[6:22] A Short Lesson on Multiple Sclerosis

 

Marielle gives us a quick in-depth look at Multiple Sclerosis and its genesis. It’s one of 80 different autoimmune diseases. 80% of our immune system lives in our gut. With (MS) Marielle’s immune system sees her myelin sheath as foreign invaders and attacks them and thus disrupts the signal her brain sends her nerves. (MS) means multiple scars. Scars could be on your brain, cerebellum, or spine. Certain scars dissipate because of diet and lifestyle. To read more about MS, click here.

 

[12:00] Healthy Habits Moving Forward

 

Exercise, healthy diet (she’s paleo), good sleep. Allow yourself to naturally progress into your healthy lifestyle changes. Kaizen them. Take small steps.

 

[16:20] Assessing Gut Health

 

Eating bad foods or foods that are not good for your body, will cause problems.

 

[19:00] Getting Quality Sleep

 

Sleep is the only time our bodies have to stop and repair. 7 - 10 hours a night is optimal. It’s like a rest day from working out. Your body wants to take a break.

 

[26:20] Social Media’s Impact

 

Social media allows us to connect with people and share our messages. It allows for edutainment.

 

[33:30] The Thing That Marielle Is Advocating For As A Holistic Health Coach

 

She advocates doing what works for you, and more importantly, following an anti-inflammatory diet.

[42:20] Scheduling Time Accordingly

 

Marielle plans her time out a week ahead which allows her to stay organized and get things done. Her iPhone is her go-to time-management device.

 

[44:00] Returning To Our Inner-Child

 

Curiosity is an incredible thing. Explore those things that you find yourself saying you wish you could do or had the time to do. People have so many fears that if they explore a passion, they won’t get any external validation from doing it.

 

[48:00] No Burnout. What You Do Is A Self-Care Ritual

 

Burnout doesn’t happen when you truly enjoy what you are doing.

 

[56:30] Blessing In Disguise

 

Being diagnosed with (MS) did not define Marielle’s life. It’s part of her life. Her disease helped her improve her health.

 

[57:00] Where Can We Connect with Marielle

 

We can go to Marielle website: http://www.mkwellness.co/.

Marielle’s Instagram: @mkwellnesscoach.

 

[58:14] Marielle’s Definition of Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings

 

Finding something that makes you want to get up every day.

FLY 107 | The Possibilities are Endless When You Start Over and Design Your Life with Purpose and Authenticity w/ Vanya Lazarova

November 15, 2017

FLY 107 | The Possibilities are Endless When You Start Over and Design Your Life with Purpose and Authenticity w/ Vanya Lazarova

   

Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings Is Following The Signs and The Drive Within You, Living Life On Your Own Terms, and Honoring Yourself. - Vanya Lazarova

 

What’s up FLY Fam®!

 

Today’s FLY guest is Vanya Lazarova. She’s a Life Coach that works and plays in New York, and let me tell ya, once you hear her story on the podcast you’ll understand why I thought she would be an incredible addition to our ongoing FLY List.

 

Vanya is a coach that specializes in helping people create their life's work by starting with purpose and authenticity. She loves writing, reading, psychology, philosophy, arts and all forms of self-expression. She co-founded a personal development podcast called "The Coaching Journal", where she and her partner Katy Trost offer thought-provoking concepts to empower people to intentionally design the life they desire to have.

 

You can read more about Vanya on her website: https://www.liveauthentic.net/about/

Introduction: The Journey Of A Girl From Bulgaria

 

My incredible guest today is Vanya Lazarova. We connected on Instagram and I messaged her, inviting her to come on the show.

 

[2:07] Still Can’t Believe How This Journey Has Unfolded

 

Vanya was born and raised in Bulgaria and moved to the United States in 2010 and since that moment, she made it her mission to find her purpose and a meaningful career, and design that for herself since she didn’t have a career path set from college, as her degree is in philosophy.

 

For a few years, Vanya did a few different career paths, but she didn’t feel connected to any of them so she decided to go deeper and really figure out what would make her the most happy and fulfilled person she could be.

 

[4:23] Found Coaching In A Way You Wouldn’t Expect

 

Coaching just started showing up in her life and people were asking her about it, and because of that she could no longer ignore the signs that were showing up and started surrounding herself with people who were into coaching and then decided to look into it, and now she’s been coaching for a year and a half now.

 

[5:57] Piecing It Together

 

Coaching is a way of living life. Growing up, Vanya really hadn’t pieced it together, and her journey of piecing things together really manifested itself in her life, after moving to New York. She was in disbelief in whether she would ever find her purpose in life and was at the crossroads.

 

[12:08] Let Your Fascination Drive You, Instead of Following The Social Template

 

Growing up, Vanya was always drawn towards meaning and purpose, and so those were the things that she did, but as she got older, she was ignoring those things to the fit the mold of what everyone else was doing. After doing the things that she didn’t love, she went back to being true to herself and doing the things that fulfilled her.

 

[16:44] Coming To Terms with Purpose-Driven Work and Pushing Through The Fears and Doubts

 

The fears and doubts were real for Vanya because she was questioning whether people really needed the service she provided. She had to open her awareness to the idea that the work she does, though it doesn’t fit the current work paradigm, is so beneficial to people that want more purpose and meaning in their lives.

 

[20:07] The Steps Necessary in Creating A Life With Purpose and Meaning

 

The first step is awareness. What things make you happy in your soul? Many people don’t know their values, and that is a good place to start as well because that will help with getting aligned with what you enjoy.

 

[22:00] Creating Your List of Values

 

Whatever your values are, those should be the things that fuel your work. One of Vanya’s values is a deeper connection with other people. She loves people. Vanya also values curiosity and freedom.

 

[30:46] Being Authentic and Giving Yourself Self-Love

 

Authenticity can be a real challenge but not being yourself is so draining. It takes becoming aware of what you are hiding from and what you are afraid of and putting it down on paper, to gain back your freedom. Journaling helped Vanya overcome holding herself back.

 

Self-love is radical self-acceptance. It’s being vulnerable. It’s coming to terms with who you are and putting a mirror in front of your face, and saying that “This is me.” It’s coming into a deep discovery of who you are.

 

[35:31] The Coaching Journal Podcast

 

Vanya’s podcast started as a passion project with her friend, Katy Trost. The podcast has allowed her to share her voice and to fully express herself. Authenticity is a major message for their show.

 

Vanya has found that it can be a challenge to share our message because of our gremlins (internal critics). But journaling has really helped mute those gremlins. Accepting that the gremlins are there has actually freed her. Asking yourself great questions helps free you from those gremlins.

 

“The magic happens once you let go and open up.” - Vanya Lazarova

 

[44:00] Returning To Our Inner-Child

 

Curiosity is an incredible thing. Explore those things that you find yourself saying you wish you could do or had the time to do. People have so many fears that if they explore a passion, they won’t get any external validation from doing it.

 

[50:00] How To Avoid Overwhelm and Getting Stuck

 

Taking it step by step and prioritizing your goals. Multitasking is not helpful. Taking your time is key. Kaizen one thing and give it 100% of your focus is the best way to move forward. Kaizen is breaking down a goal to small, incremental steps that you can accomplish easily.

 

[54:00] Just Do The Thing

 

Tackle the most uncomfortable thing on your goals list and break it down into the simplest of steps possible because that will help you move ahead faster than you would’ve been otherwise, with your purpose-driven work, or passion. Don’t be in the hall of fame of getting ready to get ready.

 

[56:00] Where Can We Connect with Vanya

 

We can go to Vanya’s website: www.liveauthentic.net.

Her podcast is the Coaching Journal. It is available on Soundcloud.

Vanya’s Instagram: @_liveauthentic_.

 

[56:44] Vanya’s Definition of Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings

 

Following the little signs that you have. Following the little drive within you. To really live life on your own terms and honoring yourself.

Detroit Super Mogul, Justin Hatchett, Talks About How To Make It As An Entrepreneur, Building Community, & The Three Things You Must Do Right Now to FLY   

 

Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings Is Finding Your Passion Regardless of What Everyone Else Says; Finding That One Thing That Gives You Purpose For Life. - Justin Hatchett

 

What’s up FLY Fam®!

 

Today’s FLY guest is a Super Mogul. He’s an image consultant, creative director, CEO and fashion designer for Top Shelf or Die, involved in artist management, and so much more, and he is making his first appearance in the FLY Zone®. This Super Mogul is Justin Hatchett. Justin is a 22 year old from Detroit that I had the pleasure of meeting IRL a few days before he came on the show. We both happened to be in Detroit at the world famous Eastern Market.

 

I was down there with my mom, shooting a commercial for our fashion line, LIVE IT! LOVE IT! Detroit®, and Justin was down there getting his models ready for The Walk Fashion Show audition that was taking place in one of the event sheds there, before heading to his own fashion show across town.

 

We connected again the next day over the phone, chatted in person the day after that, and had the interview for Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings on Friday, October 13, 2017 @ 11am, and the episode was phenomenal, as Justin provided so much value that I could take everything we talked about and make a powerful course from it that would accelerate your FLY life in the most powerful/impactful way, whether you’re entrepreneurial like Justin, or not. It doesn’t matter.

Do You Believe Or Naw???

Do You Believe Or Naw??? was originally written as a blog post on Medium.com.

Founder and CEO of Bookie Bookz, Alex Hernandez, Talks About His New Business, The Entrepreneur’s Journey, and Doing What You Gotta Do

November 10, 2016

Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings Is “Meraki” (Putting Yourself Into Something And Giving It Life). - Alex Hernandez

 

What’s up FLY Zone,

Today’s FLY guest is making his second appearance on Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings, and I was glad to have him on at this time because I haven’t been actively recording new podcast episodes, since I have been in school taking my science classes at the University of Michigan (More on this later in a different post). I was actually studying when Alex texted me and asked if we could get on the mic and do a show together to catch up and talk about his new business, Bookie Bookz, which launched on Saturday, November 5, 2016. We talked the next day on Sunday, November 6. Bookie Bookz is a new book subscription service that gives you access to a growing library dedicated to your personal and professional growth. You find a book you want to read and Bookie Bookz sends it Straight To Your Doorstep. You read the book and invest in your knowledge, and once finished, you send it back in one of Bookie Bookz prepaid shipping labels. Bookie Bookz then sends you the next book you have in your online queue. You can check out Bookie Bookz at www.bookiebookz.com.

Besides talking about his new project, we also had a real conversation about what his life is like now, compared to last year, and the journey he’s been on since his first appearance on the show. In his own words, juggling his job, his entrepreneurship venture, and his relationships with the people he loves has been a struggle for him and he wasn’t shy about discussing that.

We also get specific about how you execute on your goal to make it a reality, and he brought up entrepreneur and podcaster, Pat Flynn, and his book, Will It Fly? The book talks about mind-mapping your goal, reverse engineering it into actionable steps, and consistently following a game plan for those steps, every day.

To go along with that, Alex talked about a growth/progress hack he has been doing for years, which he calls daily disciplines, and it is exactly what it sounds like. He has a checklist of 3-5 things that he does every day, that matter to him. Regardless of whatever else is going on in his day to day life, he knows that if he does those 3-5 things, it was a great day.

To hear him explain this daily discipline growth hack, check out the success diary video series on his blog.

Before we ended the show, it was refreshing to hear why Alex does what he does every day, and how he manages to stay steadfast on his entrepreneurial journey. He expressed that he loves what he does, and is aware that he has to (excuse the expression, “Eat shit” for a while) or do what he has to do until he can do what he wants to do. With entrepreneurialism flowing through his body, it’s only a matter of time until being able to do what he wants to do all the time is a reality.   

Things we talked about are:

  • Bookie Bookz and how you can sign-up
  • His entrepreneurial journey
  • His Daily Disciplines
  • Having a partner that supports him
  • Asking yourself why the things that are important to you, are important to you
  • Juggling job, entrepreneurship, and personal relationships
  • The first time Alex and I talked on the podcast - Listen to it here!

Author, Shira Taylor Gura, Talks About Getting unSTUCK

Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings Is Being Present in Every Moment. - Shira Taylor Gura

What is up FLY Zone,

Man it feels good to be back with the goods, after my much needed hiatus. There was a reason for it, and I’ll be having much more info about that in the coming future, but for today, let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves. There’s a reason for this post. Shira Taylor Gura joins me on the podcast to talk about: Emotions, Relationships, and Well-being, and it is great, and beneficial, and you’re going to love it.

So who is this Shura Taylor Gura? Well for starters, she is a phenomenal women, wife, and mother of four. She is also the author of the brand new book, Getting unSTUCK - Five Simples Steps to Emotional Well-Being. She created The S.T.U.C.K. Method™ by drawing on her training as an occupational therapist and yoga instructor, and I can’t even beging to tell you how meaningful it was to have Shira on the show talking about emotional well-being because I needed to hear her message.

What made this episode experience so unique was that Shira, who lives in northern Israel, is the one who reached out to me to come on as a guest, after hearing about me on The Highly Sensitive Person Podcast, which is hosted by none other than Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings guest superstar, Kelly O’Laughlin.

Needless to say, I felt honored, humbled, grateful, that someone from the other side of the world someone I’ve never met, knew about Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings and wanted to be part of this amazing story that’s being created everyday.

(So Shira, I know you are reading this. Thank you for being a first for me on the show! My Emotional Well-Being was definitely at a high, after talking with you, and it still is!)   

Here’s a little bit more background on Shira…

She’s a well-being coach, that facilitates engaging and interactive workshops and retreats ranging from corporate offices, to educational and religious institutions, and community centers. Her belief that a more mindful, compassionate life is available to anyone, anywhere is reflected in her blog (www.thestuckmethod.com ).

In this episode, here is what you’ll hear:

  • Shira’s background
  • How her blog came about and what led to her writing her brand new book!
  • A walk-through of the simple five steps of The S.T.U.C.K. Method™ (So Money!!!)
  • How she feels about what she is doing
  • How you can join her Facebook group, Getting UnStuck
  • Details about her upcoming book tour!!!
  • Future plans for The S.T.U.C.K. Method™
  • Shira’s definition of Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings

Lifestyle Blogger, Austin Floyd Talks About The 5 Fundamentals of Heightened Living

May 11, 2016

Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings Is When You Get A Call, You Have To Answer It. Especially When It’s Something That Throws You For A Loop and Pushes You Out Of Your Comfort Zone. - Austin Floyd

What’s up FLY Zone,

Today I have the privilege of talking with Lifestyle Blogger, Austin Floyd. It was a long time coming, and I am glad that we were finally able to connect. He is a family friend of my brother’s girlfriend’s family, and my brother’s girlfriend’s mom has been saying that Austin and I should talk, since we are interested in the same topics.

It was cool talking with Austin because he was very transparent about his story. He’s also very knowledgable, so I asked him plenty of questions related to self development.

If Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings is something that you want to be known for and you want to create a life that excites you and drives you, this is a great episode to listen to.

Just so you know, Austin is a lifestyle blogger, lifehacker, and hard worker, who in the last 6 months, radically changed his life. After getting an offer in a facebook group to work for the health and fitness role model he was following at the time, he jumped at the opportunity, dropped out of school, and moved from Michigan to Florida. This all came about because of his personal blog, Mindfullifestyle.net, now called Heightenedliving.com.

Now at 21, he is living directly on the beach in Florida, with only the ability to excel at anything of his choosing.

His 3 Favorite Topics To Talk About are:

  • Routines and Habits
  • Health and Fitness
  • Productivity


In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • His story
  • What happened when he reached his lowest point
  • How he got into blogging, and what his first blog, Mindfullifestyle.net was about
  • What to do when you metaphorically hit a wall in your life
  • The key areas that dictate your day: Sleep and Awake
  • What optimal sleep is
  • Austin’s Sleep and Awake routine and why they are crucial
  • Why Austin dropped out of college
  • What gave Austin the confidence to jump at the opportunity that was presented to him
  • The 5 Fundamentals of Heightened Living
  • What Austin has in store for the future
  • Austin’s definition of Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings
