16. The Secrets to Achieving Any Goal
Today I’m talking about the right way vs. the wrong way to set goals. The problem is most people pick some random goal, it’s usually too small, and they kinda sorta come up with a plan for making it happen. This is a terrible way of doing things and it never works! In this episode, I’m going to walk you through a better way of setting goals. But even more importantly, I’m going to teach you how to ACHIEVE those goals.
15. The Surprising Power of Self-Awareness
Most people are not consciously aware of their own thoughts, feelings, and actions. The main reason for this is a lack of self-awareness, and it might just be the most important factor in determining the results you get (or don’t get) in your running, in your weight loss journey, in your relationships, and in every area of your life. Today, I’m talking about the surprising power of self-awareness – what it means to develop self-awareness, how exactly you can do it, and why it’s perhaps the most powerful life skill you can learn.

You may not be aware of it, but your beliefs drive everything that you do. Your beliefs determine every result that you get in your life.

In this episode, I’ll show you how to change your negative beliefs so you can finally get what you want in your life and be who you want to be.
12. Why Running Doesn’t Work for Weight Loss
Being overweight is not something that’s not talked about very much (or at all) in the running community. There seems to be some stigma around being a runner and being overweight. In this episode, I’ll share why running is not a very effective tool for weight loss, and why you need to treat the underlying physical, mental, and emotional aspects of overeating if you really want to lose weight for good.
11. How to Manage Your Mind During Uncertain Times
These are some very uncertain times we are living in right now. Races are canceled, schools are closed, restaurants and bars are closed, most people are working from home, and what’s next? How bad will it get? What can we do about it? The truth is, there’s not a lot we can do about the situation “out there”. What we absolutely CAN do is take control of our THOUGHTS about the situation.
10. The Incredible Power of Your Mind
The most powerful thing in the entire known universe is the human mind. So how do we use it? Most people use their minds to create stress, anxiety, and depression for themselves. They don’t use their minds to create positive thoughts and positive emotions, they constantly worry that things aren’t as they should be. If only they were thinner, or their husbands treated them better, or they made more money, then they would be happy.
