Penn Jillette: Building the Longest Running Act in Vegas

THE HARDEST THING TO DO WHEN YOU GET OLDER IS CHANGE A HABIT. There is a Buddhist metaphor of the elephant and the rider. We are all riding an elephant. We think that we are in control. We have the reigns. But the elephant could overpower us at any moment. No matter how much we use our minds, our emotions ultimately are more powerful. This applies to the way we eat. We become slaves to our cravings and desires. Sometimes it takes something big to get back in control of our ?elephant.? On today?s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about changing habits, being authentic, and what it takes to build the longest running act in Vegas with one of the world?s most famous magicians: Penn Jillette. Penn Jillette is a magician, actor, musician, inventor, television personality, and best-selling author best known for his work with fellow magician Teller as half of the team Penn & Teller. The duo has been featured in numerous stage and television shows such as Penn & Teller: Fool Us, and Penn & Teller: Bullshit!, and are currently headlining in Las Vegas at The Rio. He has published eight books, including the New York Times Bestseller, God, No!: Signs You May Already Be an Atheist and Other Magical Tales. Not many people can keep a marriage together for over forty years, let alone a working partnership. Penn is someone who shows up authentically every day. He isn?t afraid to express his thoughts and values even though they upset some people. So get ready to learn how to doubt yourself less and care about the things that matter on Episode 814. Some Questions I Ask: Why do we live in so much fear when we?re safer than ever? (8:00) What are you most proud of in the last few years? (9:00) Which of your parents is the most influential in your life? (47:00) What?s the lesson you still need to learn about yourself? (54:00) Is there anything you wish you would have done differently in the last years? (1:01:00) What is your superpower? (1:09:00) In This Episode You Will Learn: About the ?mono diet? (20:00) Penn?s thoughts on religion (40:00) What makes Penn and Teller successful as a partnership (58:00) About ?effective altruism?

Live Intentionally

WRITE YOUR STORY. Everyone has a story. You do. I do. Your life will be recorded. The question is, is your story the one that you want to be told? We often let other people write our pages instead of taking the pen and doing it ourselves. If you want your life to be a masterpiece, you?re going to have to live intentionally. For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with John Maxwell where he shared the gift that inspired him to live an intentional life. John C. Maxwell is a #1 New York Times bestselling author, coach, and speaker who has sold more than 25 million books in fifty languages. In 2014 he was identified as the #1 leader in business by the American Management Association and the most influential leadership expert in the world by Business Insider and Inc. magazine. The recipient of the Mother Teresa Prize for Global Peace and Leadership from the Luminary Leadership Network, Dr. Maxwell speaks each year to Fortune 500 companies, presidents of nations, and many of the world's top business leaders. John says that in order to live intentionally, you have to bridge the gap between knowing and doing. You have to take your good intentions and act them out.

Calm Your Mind and Master Meditation

MEDITATION WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE. A lot of us are suffering, and we don?t even realize it. We?re always on the move. We?re always doing. We?re balancing so many responsibilities. We don?t take time to quiet our minds so that we can start to understand what?s going on up there. That?s why meditation is so powerful. It allows you to get to the root of your problems instead of constantly fixing the symptoms. It?s like flossing your brain. Meditation will get all ?gunk? out. On today?s episode of The School of Greatness, I?ve combined interviews with experts on meditation: Jay Shetty, Preethaji, Krishnaji, Dan Harris, and Andy Puddacomb. Jay Shetty is a former monk who was named in the Forbes 30 Under 30 Class of 2017 for being a game-changer and influencer in the world of Media. Jay?s daily show HuffPost Live #FollowTheReader, where he interviewed the likes of Russell Brand, Tim Ferriss and Deepak Chopra reached 1 million people daily. Jay aims to share knowledge at the pace we want entertainment, something he likes to call ?making wisdom go viral.? He has created content for and partnered with Snapchat, Facebook, National Geographic, Nasdaq and HuffPost to name a few. Preethaji is a modern day Indian philosopher and sage who has co-founded along with her husband Krishnaji the O&O Academy (school to revolutionize and transform human thought), World Youth Change Makers (an elite community of youth redirecting the future of the world through a revolution in consciousness), and One Humanity Care (a Foundation working with the vision to uplift 10,000 villages in India). Dan Harris is correspondent for ABC News, an anchor for Nightline and co-anchor for the weekend edition of Good Morning America. Harris encourages the use of meditation, and his "10% Happier" podcasts are interviews with other meditators. Harris' book, 10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Really Works ? a True Story, was published in March 2014. Andy Puddicombe is a meditation and mindfulness expert. An accomplished presenter and writer, Andy is the voice of all things Headspace. In his early twenties, midway through a university degree in Sports Science, Andy made the unexpected decision to travel to The Himalayas to study meditation instead. These masters explain the importance of meditation, the common misconceptions, and the science behind it all. It?s a lot more straightforward than you might think. So get ready to learn all about meditation on Episode 812. Some Questions I Ask: What?s the biggest lesson you learned from being a monk (5:45) What?s the intention you set every morning? (10:45) Why do we focus so much on suffering when it only hurts us? (21:10) What?s the importance of a spiritual vision? (22:35) Why is meditation so powerful?

Find Lasting Love with Matthew Hussey

BUILD YOUR CASTLE. Love at first sight is bullshit. A relationship is like a castle. You find a plot of land that has a lot of potential. Then, bit by bit, you build the castle. But it takes work from both of you. One person can?t be laying the bricks while the other is home watching TV. After lots of hard work, you?ll have something unique and ornate that belongs to you. You?ll have a castle. That?s love. On today?s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about the key to lasting relationships with an international guru of the dating and relationship-coaching scene: Matthew Hussey. Matthew Hussey is a speaker, New York Times Bestselling author, columnist for Cosmopolitan Magazine, and dating expert on ABC?s digital series What To Text Him Back. His corporate clients include Hugo Boss, The Perfume Shop, Virgin Gyms, Procter & Gamble, Bare Escentuals, U.S. legal giant Weil Gotshal & Manges, and global management consultants Accenture. 50,000 women have attended his live events and he has reached over 10 million online. Matthew says that the ?activation energy? for starting relationships is lower than ever. This causes ghosting. People are less invested in relationships. But there are ways you can meet people indirectly. So get ready to learn the three things you need to build a great relationship on Episode 811. Some Questions I Ask: Do people even want to have a committed, long term relationship? (19:00) Is a great relationship when you stop thinking about your needs and not expecting anything in return? (21:30) How do we step outside of the emotional feelings in a relationship? (25:00) When do you know you?re ready for a committed, intimate relationship?

Lead with Love

COMMUNICATE YOUR VISION. Being an effective leader is difficult. Some do it through fear. Some do it through understanding. And others lead with love. You could be super demanding and scary and get what you want. But is that the kind of life you want to lead? Probably not. Often, leading in a way where you understand other people?s concerns will be the most beneficial to you. There?s a lot you can learn from others. Ask yourself: how can you bring people together in a way that satisfies their needs as well as your own? For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with the legendary director Jon Chu where he shared how he communicates his vision on set. Jon Chu directed the films Crazy Rich Asians, Step Up 2: The Streets, Step Up 3D, and Justin Bieber: Never Say Never. Jon graduated from the USC School of Cinema-Television where he won the Princess Grace Award, the Dore Schary Award presented by the Anti-Defamation League, the Jack Nicholson directing award, and was recognized as an honoree for the IFP/West program Project: Involve.

EP 809 The Power of Minimalism 445795

THE LESS YOU DO THE MORE YOU CAN RECEIVE. Take a moment to explore your habits. Do you glance at your phone during every free moment? Do you fill up your calendar with things that don?t add value? Do you spend your day working on a job that has no meaning for you? If so, your life is cluttered. Not just with stuff, but with noise. Quieting down and clearing out our schedule can be scary because it means you may have the space to face some tough questions. But when you do, you?ll find you?re able to live a much more intentional life. On today?s episode of The School of Greatness, I explore minimalism with five experts on the subject: Cal Newport, Jesse Itzler, Joshua Fields Millburn, Rich Roll, and Chris Guillebeau. Cal Newport is a computer science professor at Georgetown University. In addition to academic research, he writes about the intersection of technology and society. He?s particularly interested in the impact of new technologies on our ability to perform productive work or lead satisfying lives. Jesse Itzler is an ultramarathon runner who is also a bestselling author, award-winning rapper, and an original partner for ZICO coconut water. He is the co-founder of Marquis Jets and a co-owner of the NBA?s Atlanta Hawks.

Joshua and his co-host help more than 20 million people live meaningful lives with less through their website, books, podcast, and films. The Minimalists have been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Boston Globe, Forbes, and more. They have spoken at Harvard, Apple, and Google. Their documentary was recently released by Netflix. Rich Roll is a graduate of Stanford University and Cornell Law School, accomplished vegan ultra-endurance athlete and former entertainment attorney turned full-time wellness & plant-based nutrition advocate, popular public speaker, and inspiration to people worldwide as a transformative example of courage and healthy living. Rich became a #1 bestselling author with the publication of his inspirational memoir Finding Ultra: Rejecting Middle Age, Becoming One of the World?s Fittest Men, and Discovering Myself. Taking up where the book leaves off, in 2013 Rich launched the wildly popular Rich Roll Podcast. Chris Guillebeau is a NY Times Best Selling Author, speaker, a modern day explorer, and has been to nearly every country in the world. He is best known for The Art of Non-Conformity blog and book. He has also written guides for travel and small business topics under the brand Unconventional Guides. He organizes the annual World Domination Summit in Portland, Oregon.

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO WIN? We can have our eyes on the prize. We can work every day to accomplish our goal. We can sacrifice and suffer to be the best. But at the end of the day, you can?t define yourself by whether or not you get ?first place.? If your identity depends on one thing, you?re bound to fail. You have to free yourself from tying your worth to winning. When you do, you just might see some amazing results. On today?s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about faith, family and CrossFit with the ?Fittest Man On Earth:? Rich Froning. Rich Froning is a CrossFit athlete known for his achievements participating in the CrossFit Games. He became the first person to win the title of "Fittest Man on Earth" four times and has led team CrossFit Mayhem Freedom to the first-place finish three times. Froning owns and operates the affiliate gym CrossFit Mayhem, located in Cookeville, Tennessee, and is a member of the CrossFit Level 1 Seminar Staff.

The Power of Why

START WITH YOUR WHY. You have to believe in your vision. We all get caught up in limiting beliefs. The sooner you understand what holds you back and why the sooner you can achieve flow.

STOP PLAYING SMALL. A lot of times when we think about growth, we think small. We say, ?How can I make thirty thousand more a year?? Instead, we should say, ?How can make 300 thousand more a year.?

Don't Let Your Past Define You

Knowledge is not enough. We can know what we?re doing isn?t good for us in the long run. We can know that we have weaknesses in certain areas. We can know that we have stored up pain and anxiety. But what do we do with that knowledge? You have to work through your past issues and trauma so that you stop repeating harmful patterns. It?s not easy, but it?s worth it. For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with Neil Strauss where he shared how he went from being a ?pick up artist? to someone capable of having a fulfilling romantic relationship.

RELAX. How often do you say, ?I?m just going to get through the day.? You?re running on adrenaline. But it?s not sustainable. If you?re not relaxed, you?re not breathing. If you?re not breathing, you?re not getting oxygen. It?s a loop. You?re going to be exhausted all the time. On today?s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about the power of breathing to heal our mind and body with a man known as ?The Iceman:? Wim Hof. Wim Hof got his nickname ?The Iceman? by breaking a number of records related to cold exposure. His feats include climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in shorts, running a half marathon above the Arctic Circle on his bare feet, and standing in a container while covered with ice cubes for more than 112 minutes. He developed the Wim Hof Method: a natural path to an optimal state of body and mind. He says that our brains have the power to guarantee us happiness, strength, and health.

EP 782 Sex and Love, Lust and Infidelity with Wednesday Martin

IT'S TIME TO PUT THESE SEX MYTHS TO BED. Having a healthy sexual relationship is important. But it?s not something we often talk about. Women?s satisfaction especially seems to take a back seat. So how can women get what they need in the bedroom? As men, we can ask questions. See what your partner is into.

Wednesday has appeared on the Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, NPR, NBC News, the BBC Newshour, and Fox News as a step/parenting expert.

On today?s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about making the most of opportunities and learning how to listen with one of the most successful actors of our time: Topher Grace.

He is also the host of a new podcast called Minor Adventures with Topher Grace. As an actor, Topher constantly receives feedback on his work.

EP 780 Help Others and Yourself

DO GOOD ALL THE TIME. Some people have an idea of giving that is not sustainable. You can?t self-sacrifice endlessly to help others. You also have to take care of yourself. Giving can be a win/win situation. In fact, it should be. Helping the world is only worth it if you are also helping yourself. For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with Will Macaskill where he shared this idea as one of his principles of effective altruism. William MacAskill is a philosopher, ethicist, and one of the originators of the effective altruism movement. He is an Associate Professor in Philosophy and Research Fellow at the Global Priorities Institute, University of Oxford. He is also the co-founder and president of 80,000 Hours, the co-founder and vice-president of Giving What We Can, and the co-founder of the Centre for Effective Altruism. Learn how to help others in the most meaningful way in Episode 780. In This Episode You Will Learn: One of the core principles of effective altruism (2:00) How to create a win/win while making an impact (3:00) Why additional income doesn?t make you happier (4:00) How to give without sacrificing a lot (5:00) Follow me on: instagram: @lewishowes twitter: @lewishowes

EP 779 Using YouTube to Bring Your Dream to Life

IT' ALL ABOUT THE HUSTLE. What gatekeepers are holding you back from doing what you love? I?m inspired by the creators on YouTube. They are people who have forged their own path. They didn?t wait for someone to allow them to make videos- they just went out and did it. They?ve dealt with negative comments. They?ve had failed videos. They?ve faced countless setbacks. And they still continued to create. You have to give yourself permission to find and express your true self. On today?s episode of The School of Greatness, I created a mashup of all my favorite interviews with the women of YouTube: Lilly Singh, iJustine, Bethany Mota, and Lindsey Sterling. Lilly Singh (aka iiSuperwomanii) is a multi-faceted comedian, entertainer, actress and the founder of #GirlLove. She has found worldwide fame through her comedic and inspirational YouTube videos, amassing 12 million subscribers. In March 2017, she released her debut book HOW TO BE A BAWSE: A Guide to Surviving Conquering Life, which became a #1 New York Times Best Seller. As a role model to women and girls around the globe, Singh created her #GirlLove initiative to break the cycle of girl-on-girl hate and encourage women to build each other up. Justine Ezarik, the YouTube personality better known as iJustine, took the internet by storm. She's been around for more than a decade, first popping up on YouTube in 2006 where she has accumulated millions of subscribers and fans. The vlogger still remains beloved and has since branched out with a bustling Instagram account and a memoir. Bethany Mota started with her channel, Macbarbie07 in 2009. She rose to fame for her haul videos, in which she shows her fashion and style purchases via the internet. She uploads videos of outfit ideas, makeup and hair tutorials, recipes, and do it yourself ideas. She has since expanded into her own fashion line at Aéropostale. She has gone on multiple tours, which she calls her "Motavatours" to meet and interact with fans. She also appeared on Season 19 of Dancing with the Stars. Lindsey Sterling is a violinist with 10 million YouTube subscribers, over 1.9 billion views on her YouTube channel, 2 Billboard Music Awards, Billboard chart-topping hits and sold-out tours worldwide. All of these women share a common drive that forces them to keep putting themselves out there and keep being better each day. So get ready to learn how to find creativity and inspiration on Episode 779. Some Questions I Ask: Where does your hustle come from? (4:00) Who do you want to be?

YOU HAVE TO SHOW UP EVERY DAY. I?m not a distance runner. When I run, the first few minutes are easy. But after a mile, it starts to hurt. I can either stop there, or I can keep going.

EP 777 Science and the Soul

THERE IS ORDER TO THE CHAOS. What is this place? Are we even really here? Is there a higher power that created us, or was it a random explosion? These are some big questions.

EP 776 I Was Sexually Abused (How to Heal from Trauma)

YOU'RE ONLY AS SICK AS THE SECRETS YOU KEEP. Five years ago, I made my first post opening up about my childhood sexual abuse. It was the best thing I could have done.

EP 775 Become Superhuman with Your Potential with Colin O'Brady

THOSE WHO SAY THEY CAN AND THOSE WHO SAY THE CAN'T ARE USUALLY BOTH RIGHT. Any time you try to do something great, there are going to be critics. That?s impossible. That?s crazy. You?ll never be able to do that. But the biggest doubter is often yourself. How can we master our minds and quiet our fears when we are striving for greatness? It?s about pushing past our limits and tapping into a flow state. We are full of limitless potential. On today?s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk with a man conquered his own doubts to break records that many said were impossible: Colin O?Brady. Colin O'Brady is a professional endurance athlete, motivational speaker, and adventurer. On Dec. 26, 2018, Colin became the first person in history to cross Antarctica solo, unsupported and unaided.

EP 774 Change the World for Good

REJECT APATHY. There is suffering happening all over the world. We all can do something. Children can be a great example. When you see a kid give up what little allowance they have to help someone else or set up a lemonade stand, you realize that what you?re able to give is enough. We can?t just turn a blind eye. For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with Scott Harrison where he talked about living a life of giving. Scott Harrison was working as a nightclub promoter in New York when he became ?morally bankrupt.? He sold all of his belongings and set sail to Africa in an effort to redeem himself. He returned to New York with one goal: to provide clean water to everyone on earth. Twelve years later, he?s raised over 320 million dollars and provided water to people in 26 countries with his nonprofit charity: water. He may not be driving a fancy car or going on huge vacations, but he is ending suffering for hundreds of people a day. For him, that means so much more.

EP 772 How to Live a Long Life with Dr. Steven Gundry

DIE YOUNG AT AN OLD AGE. How many fad diets have you tried? There?s a reason that they don?t work. Health and diet are not one-size-fits-all. We all have a special set of genes that tell us what foods we need. But it?s more than your genes. Doctor?s will ask you if you have a history of a disease in your family. That?s because you not only share the same genetic make-up, you probably eat the same way. It?s a combination of the two that will determine your health. On today?s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about the secret to longevity with one of the world?s top health experts: Dr. Steven Grundy.

EP 767 Greg Louganis: Silence the Haters

VALIDATION IS REDUNDANT. As many of you know, I didn?t have friends growing up. I couldn?t read and write until late high school. I was goofy and gangly. I got made fun of all the time. Sports was something I could finally understand. I was able to prove myself by what I could accomplish on the field. But then I placed my self worth in what I could achieve in football. If I lost a game, I felt terrible. If I won, I felt great. It was so unhealthy. We need to be careful where we get our self-worth. Instead of earning it through outside validation, we should get it from the kindness in our heart, the positivity that we bring, and who you are. Learn to have unconditional love for yourself. On today?s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about self with the greatest diver in history who is also a great person and advocate: Greg Louganis.

EP 766 Barbara Corcoran: Success in Business and Life
