How to Go from Victim to Invincible with Brian Martin

This is an important episode and it probably affects people you care deeply about including yourself, I bet. After all, we've all been through some childhood trauma and what they say is, “What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger,” and as pervasive as domestic violence is, it's never okay. The victims aren't just those who were directly targeted by the perpetrators. The collateral damage always includes the kids, even if their exposure was as a “witness only.” This is called Childhood Domestic Violence or CDV. Our guest is Brian F. Martin. He is not only a successful entrepreneur who's been involved with many high-profile brands in the executive level, including Adweek, Pfizer and Walmart, he's also a passionate advocate for children who have been affected by domestic violence.He founded an amazing nonprofit, the Childhood Domestic Violence Association and shared his own harrowing story of growing up with domestic violence in the powerful book, Invincible. The foreword of that book was written by Tony Robbins, who is also deeply affected by domestic violence. We'll be taking a deep look into the causes, effects and solutions to this disturbing phenomenon. We'll also be talking about PTSD and trauma more broadly and how people can overcome negative experiences in their own lives. I was touched by this too and I'll be going into this in the episode. How do you then work towards fulfillment and success? How do you blossom? If you've ever faced real adversity in your life or know someone who has, especially in their childhood, you’ve got to read this episode.

Supercharging Your Brain’s Performance with Dr. Andrew Hill

You already know that your body needs regular exercise to stay fit and healthy. What about your brain? Poor diet and lifestyle choices can make your mind flabby, lethargic and prone to disease. In order to keep your mind sharp, you need a workout routine, and maybe even a personal brain trainer. Dr. Andrew Hill’s Peak Performance Institute provides just that. Using quantitative EEG or qEEG, brain mapping, and neurofeedback, Dr. Hill assesses your mental abilities and then devices a unique coaching program to help you reach peak mental performance. I got to experience this brain mapping and brain training firsthand and I was so impressed, I’m going to be making his program a major part of my 2019. My amazing wife, Orion, has already experienced some great results with the program. She had Dr. Hill as a guest on her podcast, Stellar Life, episode number 141. I poached her guest for this very show, with her permission of course. I’m taking a leap here but I have a hunch you’d like to improve your focus, mood or at least your creative thinking. If that’s the case, then this episode number 178 may just provide the key to unlock that potential. In addition to neurofeedback, we’ll be discussing all things brain-related including the power of meditation, supplements, and nootropics, and why sugar is bad for mental performance. It’s an episode pack-full of powerful tips for getting your brain back in shape.
