This week’s podcast is a re-release from a collection of our top listener favorites over the years. In “Slamming Your Hand in the Car Door of Life”, I discuss why movies can’t be powerful, people can’t be inspiring, and thoughts can never (yes, never) be triggered by circumstances.
This week's podcast is a re-release from a collection of our top listener favorites over the years. “Six Words That Changed My Life” is the story of one of my biggest wake up calls since I began in this conversation.
