Ever since my husband and I watched Tony Robbins in the documentary I Am Not Your Guru a few months ago, we’ve become major Tony Robbins fans. Whenever we need a pick me up, we just turn on his podcast and immediately get inspired.
Yesterday, I was working all day at home and I decided to leave the house to clear my head. I turned on his podcast to get me out of my funk, and you know what it was all about? The theme was changing your story to change your life.
If your story is you’re fat, well if you stop making excuses and start eating better and working out, you’ll change your life. If your story is you’re poor, stop complaining that you were born with less and figure out a way to make more money.
Which is exactly what Lisa talks about in our interview together. She started out in a lower income family living in a trailer park. She was told she wouldn’t be able to go to college or live a different life when she was an adult, and for a while she believed it.
But then something clicked and she realized that where she came from wasn’t her destiny. And she is living proof of this by graduating college, working a high-paying job and buying a home like she always dreamed of.
If you’re looking for a good kick in the pants podcast episode to give you that push to stop complaining and start doing, this is it!
