Growth to Freedom™ - Transform Your Life, Business, and Relationships with Clarity, Confidence, and Direction

Freedom only happens when you are driven by purpose. As one of my friends Joe Polish (of Genius Network) says: “… if you want a breakthrough, you’ve got to break something…” The Growth to Freedom™ Show helps you transform your life in business and in relationships. It’s a fresh mix of strategy, resources, and entertainment that guides you to create the personal and business breakthroughs you need. Your success and freedom will only grow to the extent you do, and the The Growth to Freedom™ Show will help you find clarity, confidence, and direction. Two weeks after my son was born in 2007, I found myself in a hospital for four days with a serious heart problem. The fact is, I had let my health go to the extent that my body gave out. It was a major wakeup call. That experience opened a new door of awareness for me. I came to realize that if I wanted something different, I needed to do something different. If I wanted something better, I needed to do it better. We’re living at one of the most exciting times in history and I believe you can have freedom on your terms. You can have it all, if you’re willing to take the necessary steps. It’s not easy. I’ve certainly made my share of mistakes and I want to help you avoid those on your own journey. This show was born as part of my process and was inspired by Joe Polish, Genius Network, and many mentors I’m also fortunate to call friends. It doesn’t matter what your background is or where you’ve been: It only matters that you want to grow.Whatever your definition of success, I will challenge, guide, and connect you to some of the best leaders and experts in the world today. Now is your time - you deserve it! The catalyst for greatness is inside of you, and it starts now with Growth to Freedom! Insights and strategy from experts like - T Harv Eker, Craig Ballantyne, Dan Sullivan, Strategic Coach, Genius Network Joe Polish, and more (what about that?) - these aren’t the experts I have interviewed, however excerpts from their ideas.

What would it look like if your life as a masterpiece? Would you paint it in full color… or would it be a black and white?

On this episode of Growth to Freedom I’m going to talk straight from the heart about something I’m really fired up about. The opportunity you have to make your life a masterpiece… and getting the colors out and painting your masterpiece.

Life is short and you only get one shot at it. What are you willing to do for to make it the very best it can be? What you would accomplish if you KNEW you couldn’t fail? What would you reach for?

By the end of this episode I’m going to give you 3 steps to building a masterpiece life and a practical, paper and pencil exercise you can do to build a vision for your life’s definition of “incredible.”

Are you playing to win or are you just getting by?

Are there things that matter, big things, that you’re shooting for, or are you playing small? It’s the people with the drive to be warriors and champions who make a difference in the world. And those kinds of achievements are not about bragging rights, they’re the result of effectively, intentionally stewarding the life you’ve been given to make the most of it.

You can do it. I know you can. You can make your life into something incredible that touches the world in ways that only you can do. But you’ve got to stop playing small. It starts with a dream. It starts by thinking outside that box, and setting yourself to win.

If what I’m saying is stirring something inside, you then you’re exactly the person who needs to listen to this episode.

What would happen in your life, business, and relationships if you could be your most productive self?

Imagine it - every interaction, every transaction, and every conversation filled with the very best you have to give. No distractions. No divided attention. No half-hearted measures. The goal of today’s conversation is to give you some tools to help you eliminate the distractions that each of us face on a day to day basis. Today’s guest, Dr. Cristy Lopez, visited me in studio to share the tools that enable you to keep things simple, make better life choices, and maintain powerful focus. It’s all on this episode of Growth to Freedom.

Do you know the difference between being busy and being productive?

Most people don’t. Being busy can give you the feeling that you are being productive but it’s really an illusion. It’s often the case that busy people are spinning their wheels, not really getting anywhere.

Dr. Cristy Lopez is an expert in helping people recognize the patterns and habits that hold them back from maximizing their productivity in life, relationships, and business - and on this episode she shares the first steps toward recapturing your productive spark.

One of the first things you’ve got to determine is how you are going to deal with interruptions. Notice I didn’t say, “How you’re going to avoid interruptions,” because that’s not possible. You will always have people knocking on your door, calling you, emailing, interrupting - but what are you going to do to minimize the impact those inevitable interruptions have on your productivity?

Dr. Lopez says that it takes anywhere from 20 to 25 minutes for the average person to get back into a state of true productivity once they’ve been interrupted. That means it’s crucial that you know how to quickly deal with the distractions that come your way and get back into your productive state sooner.

And productivity is not just about business, it’s also needed in relationships.

When you are with your spouse or children, is your mind wandering or focused on things other than the precious time you have together in that moment? Don’t underestimate the importance of those relationships.. Dr. Lopez highlights some things you can do to help keep your mind undistracted during family time, on this episode, so be sure you take the time to listen.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll discover in this show:

  • The power of Productivity - introduction; [0:31]
  • What would happen if you could be your most productive self? [0:43]
  • Productive versus busy - what’s the difference? [2:23]
  • Serial interruptions and the challenge of productivity [7:56]
  • How disruptions detract from productivity and performance [9:20]
  • Productivity in your relationships [10:58]
  • How to do the most productive thing at any given moment [15:12]
  • Put a framework into place that helps you be productive. [17:45]
  • Your main concern should be who you are and how you want to live your life [18:38]
  • And more...

If it were possible to decrease the stress levels you experience in relationships by applying one principle, would you want to know what it was?

What if you could increase the amount of personal power you feel in your interactions and overcome barriers between you and the significant people in your life?

On today’s episode of Growth to Freedom I’m talking with my good friend Dr. Cristy Lopez about healthy boundaries.

Cristy is a clinical psychologist who has been helping people become more successful in their own lives, relationships, and businesses for over 20 years. In Cristy’s work with individuals she often sees her clients break through barriers and limitations, eliminate unhealthy ineffective patterns of thinking and behavior, and get on the path to a more successful and healthy life. Many times those changes come through the understanding and implementation of effective personal boundaries.

On this episode Cristy and I chat about the difference between barriers and boundaries, why knowing the difference is vital to healthy relationships, how you can set yourself up to win in relationships, why peace and safety are a direct result of healthy boundaries, overcoming the tendency to be a people pleaser, and so much more.

Toward the end of the show I issue a challenge to you, asking you to take the bold steps needed to develop even better relationship habits so that YOU can experience the peace, safety, and settledness of mind you deserve.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll walk away with from this interview:

  • Boundaries versus Barriers [0:32]
  • Who is Dr. Cristy Lopez? [1:40]
  • What do people do wrong in the area of boundaries? [2:38]
  • How can you set yourself up to win in relationships? [5:03]
  • Why letting go is so important - and so difficult. [6:55]
  • 3 basic questions to discover appropriate boundaries [7:50]
  • How assertiveness impacts the issue of proper boundaries [8:35]
  • The 3 types of “business” that impact boundaries [10:30]
  • How peace and safety come from healthy boundaries [11:20]
  • Strategies to overcome people-pleasing by creating boundaries [13:05]
  • How to navigate requests from others without falling prey to guilt [15:52]
  • Creating a healthy culture for yourself [19:35]
  • How you can connect with Dr. Cristy [20:23]
  • And more...

What if I told you that you could optimize your internal game, develop an invincible and indestructible mindset, and accomplish things in your performance and in your health that you never thought possible?

And what if I told you that you could do it with 3 step method that is simple, can be done at home, and that anyone can do?

On this episode of Growth to Freedom you're going to learn that and a whole lot more as I speak with Wim Hof. Wim is known as “The Iceman” because of the many world records he has broken in the realm of extreme cold endurance. He has hiked Mount Everest in nothing but his shorts and has taught many others to do similar feats. How is it possible? Wim has discovered a 3 step method that enables you to take control of your mindset and inner physiology to accomplish incredible things both physically and psychologically. Join me for this fascinating conversation on this episode of Growth to Freedom.

When Wim begin breaking World Records for extreme cold endurance he got the attention of the scientific community. Many prominent scientists approached him and wanted to look into his method and validate what he had been teaching was true. The result: a scientifically proven 3 step method that you can apply to shield disease, overcome depression and anxiety, destroy migraine headaches, and increase your personal performance.

NOTE & Disclaimer: We do not make any health or medical claims. You understand that if you follow Wim’s or anyone’s guidance you should do so under the guidance of your doctor. You are responsible for your results and always do your homework to verify that any possible solution in health or business can work for you. Just because it works for some people does NOT mean it will work for all. If you do nothing, you’ll also get the same - nothing. OK - I think that covers the legal disclaimer.

I know all of this sounds too good to be true, but according to Wim, it is scientifically proven. On this episode Wim shares the basics of these insights with us and provides a free resource that will enable you to get started developing your personal mindset, physical strength, and building a stronger YOU.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll walk away with from this interview:

  • The 3 Step Method for Personal Power; [0:30]
  • Who is Wim Hoff? [1:30]
  • How Wim got the attention of the scientific world; [9:46]
  • Wim’s 3-step method to shield disease: breathing, mindset, and cold exposure; [13:17]
  • Rebalancing depression through mental and physical training; [17:04]
  • Wim’s mission in the world; [18:55]
  • What a person can do when they are in a state of anxiety; [19:31]
  • The impact of cold exposure on changing the mind and body; [23:57]
  • How you can get access to Wim’s free course; [29:13]
