You’re only one decision away from a totally different life.
Most of my adult years were spent toiling away in obscure corporate drudgery. My life was marked by countless aspirations imagined, goals set, and challenges dreamed.
But everything changed when I stopped relying on motivation and made small, daily decisions to pursue a life of purpose.
Here to bring grounded, science-backed personal development principles to this concept and process is my friend Mel Robbins.
Back for her second drop on the podcast (her first being RRP #630) Mel is a former lawyer turned CNN legal analyst, talk show host, mega-bestselling author of The 5 Second Rule and The High Five Habit, and one of the most widely booked public speakers in the world. And after absolutely dominating in the world of audible-only audiobooks, Mel has branched out into my territory with the launch of her brand new podcast, aptly titled The Mel Robbins Podcast, which has already skyrocketed to one of the top shows in the world.
“The simple way to figure out who you are and what you want is to start aligning yourself with things that energize you.”
– MEL ROBBINS
Today we go deep into Mel’s recent breakthrough in her struggle with anxiety, what she learned and experienced during therapeutic MDMA sessions, along with marriage therapy, parenting advice, mindset, and so much more.
It is always an absolute pleasure to spend time with Mel, but I’ve got to say, from the moment she walked in, her energy was different for this one, and it made this conversation both very special and uniquely powerful.
So, buckle your proverbial seat belt, open your hearts, and enjoy this enlightening exchange with Mel Robbins.
