What if we could tap into the hidden superhero, savant or performer that lays buried deep inside us to do things we could normally never do? Not as a way to hide or put on a mask, but as a way to mine a secret wellspring of latent boldness and often creativity and energy that […]

When you’re looking to build something real, something that matters, from a family or community, to a business or any other mission-driven endeavor, skills matter. So do people. Thing is, there’s also something bigger that’s important. It’s about the sweet spot between cultivating a powerful, well-defined and articulated ethos or culture, then matching that ethos […]
The first time I stumbled upon Mark Manson’s writing, I didn’t know what to do. It was a complete pattern interrupt.

How does someone spend over five decades of their life fundamentally doing the same thing and still be so madly devoted and passionate and in love with what their doing that they show up and rock it out?

We are constantly surrounded by imperfect circumstances that we perceive as barriers to our ability to act at the highest level. So, what do we do? We wait for the stars to align. For a sign from God that “now is the time.” Never realizing, with rare exception, that sign is our own willingness to act. […]
As we move into these final weeks of August, we’ll be airing two extraodinary “Best Of” episodes, featuring powerful conversations from the last year. First up, Elizabeth Gilbert. Gilbert exploded into the public’s consciousness in 2006 with the release of her mega-bestselling memoir, Eat Pray Love. Since then, she’s published a series of books, given […]
*** Camp GLP Final Call: Come join us next week! *** Why do we hammer ourselves with life-stifling, defeatist absolutes attached to negative expectations all the time? I always get rejected… I always get knocked down… I always lose… I always… I call this the “tyranny of always,” and it is a form of false self-talk that is immensely destructive, […]
Facing a tough period in his life, this week’s guest, Ruben Chavez, turned to books to both reconnect with curiosity and rekindle the spark of possibility.

You need to make your practice “deliberate,” with a fierce focus on assessing and improving. In this sense, becoming mesmerizingly good might have more to do with being purposeful than obsessed. Thing is, this type of […]
When you think of masculine and feminine, do you naturally think “man” and “woman” respectively?

Today’s guest, Chris Daze Ellis, is a born-and-bred New York artist with a fascinating origin story.
