I've run se ...

Jocko Willink and Leif Babin are both Navy SEALS. They just came out with a new book “The Dichotomy of Leadership" where they break down all the mistakes leaders do, all the ways they get lost in ego, all the ways they forget to gain trust from their teams and lose. They do they so you can win. People fail at leadership everyday. I fail at lead ...…
 
Chip Conley is the Head of Hospitality for Airbnb. He started working there at age 52. And quickly realized he was double the age of everyone in the room, didn’t understand the tech lingo, and was not there for the reasons he thought he was. “So I decided, ‘Gosh the only way I’m going to survive here is to be as much of a curious learner as the ...…
 
400 episodes = 400 “yes’s” from my heroes. “Yes’s” from Tony Robbins, Richard Branson, Tyra Banks, Tiffany Haddish, Garry Kasparov, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Tony Hawk, Arianna Huffington and the list goes on (by #392). But first, I had to say “yes.” And I'm glad I did. I hope this episode helps you find your next "yes." --- Part 2 features clips fr ...…
 
I’m celebrating my 400th podcast episode. With a GIANT episode. I took clips from the last 100 podcasts and talk about what I learned from each one. It was so hard to pick which clips to do. There was over 12,000 hours of audio to pick from. So it was hard. But I got it down to 20-something clips. Thanks for celebrating 400 with me. And keep an ...…
 
“If the world ends it's because people in power didn't listen to the warnings of physicists,” Neil deGrasse Tyson said. Neil is the world’s window into physics. And he just came out with a new book “Accessory to War: The Unspoken Alliance Between Astrophysics and the Military.” He told me how physicists think. And this kind of thinking can be u ...…

My favorite movies wouldn't exist without Michael Ovitz. Think: Jurassic Park, Ghostbusters, Schindler's List! But he believes "great projects always surface." So I had him tell me about all the projects he worked with. And the talent (Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Dan Aykroyd and more). He told me how he left the mailroom of one talent agency t ...…
 
Tucker Max sold 3 million books to people who don’t read. He’s the first to go from blog to book to screenplay. And now that method of publishing is dead. But Tucker knows so many people want to write a book. And get it out there. So he started Scribe Media. So in this special part 2 of my podcast with Tucker Max, I ask him for his top 3 Rules ...…
 
I’ve known Tucker Max for 2 decades now. 20 years ago, he emailed me for advice. I told him to quit his job. And he did. He’s the bestselling author of “I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell.” And I always tell people that if they want to study good writing, go read 10 pages of Tucker's books. “My stuff blew up... All I did was stand up and use my rea ...…
 
Beth Comstock was the Vice President of General Electric. And before that, she was President of Integrated Media at NBC. Both of those titles are proof that she figured out how to rise up in the most competitive corporate environments. She had to figure out how to spot trends, generate ideas, speak up, and so on. And she recently wrote about it ...…
 
Captain Kirk has always been one of my heroes. So when Steve told me I'd get to interview the intergalactic legend, I immediately teleported back to my 11-year-old self. Star Trek made it possible for people to look up at the stars and wonder what else is out there. So I brought William Shatner on and asked him everything. He told me about the ...…
 
This interview is probably the most thought-provoking interview I've ever aired. Essentially, Yuval Harari is the expert on human evolution. I've recommended his book "Sapiens" more than any other book in the past 5 years. And not only me: Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg's say it's their favorite book, too. And now Yuval has a brand new book, "2 ...…
 
Everything in history has either a good or bad connotation. The Agricultural Revolution: good. The Rise of Big Data: bad. But what if we're wrong? Yuval gave me an example. And showed me just how wrong we might be about our own human evolution. (Also, if you like what you hear, make sure to check out the full episode with Yuval Noah Harari. Tha ...…
 
“Right now, there is somebody out there who is trying to hack you. And not just one," Yuval said. "Amazon is trying to hack you, Google is trying to hack you, Coca-Cola is trying to hack you, and the Russians, and the American government, and the Chinese, they are all trying to hack you right now." In this clip, Yuval explains the threat and wh ...…
 
This is a clip from my full interview with Yuval Noah Harari, a brilliant author and expert in human evolution. In this clip, Yuval talks about the 3 major threats to humanity.

Brandon is a Navy SEAL. He’s experienced some of the most terrifying, life-threatening situations you can imagine. He’s also been through a divorce. So I like talking to him about that. And he also runs his own business (a media to commerce called the Hurricane Group). He’s not getting shot at anymore. But he still has to deal with fear: busine ...…
 
I'm not alone in my problems. But it's easy to think I am. And that's scary. It's miserable. So, instead, I lean on my "network of wisdom." A group of people who I can call when I need to. I have my accountant, my doctor, my writer friends, my podcast producer and so on. For every fear, there's a person. -- This is a clip from my podcast with B ...…
 
This is a clip from my interview with Brandon Webb, Navy SEAL and author of "Mastering Fear: A Navy SEAL's Guide." I like the book because the premise is really powerful. It's not about getting rid of fears. It's about learning practical tools to be able to handle fear... which is just part of life.
 
Robert Cialdini is known as "The Godfather of Influence." People call him when they need to learn how to be persuasive & influential. And by "people" I mean some of the most powerful politicians, CEOs, and so on. The lessons Robert taught are still some of the most critical lessons I've learned on my podcast. So I'm excited to share it with you ...…

Bert Kreischer told me about his relationship with his dad. And he makes it sound funny (because he's a comedian), but then Bert says, "We all have issues with our dad." Which may or not be true, but at least, I feel comfort in hearing someone else share what they go through. Plus, Bert makes it funny. So there's that comedic relief. If you lik ...…
 
Bert took his shirt off on stage. He did an hour special on Netflix called "Secret Time" and he's topless the whole time. Someone even wrote him a 5-page letter explaining why it offended her. Bert didn't care. But what I thought was even funnier than that is the fact that he says he didn't know he was fat. "I thought I looked good." Here's Ber ...…
 
When Bert Kreischer was little, he did some cute little kid thing on the baseball field. But his dad didn't think it was cute. Or appropriate. And Bert says that "who that kid was" is the core of his "natural personality." Which mirrors the fact that we all grow up somehow. And we all stay the same, too. This is just one of many moments from my ...…
 
Bert Kreischer is a comedian and storyteller. He said he had to learn how to tell stories because he wasn't "a hot chick." He needed a skill or a talent and then he'd be liked. So in the 9th grade, he started practicing. Now he's 45. And he's been doing stand-up for most of his life. In this interview, I ask him about his need for approval, wha ...…
 
Bassem Youssef risked everything to create an impact. He was living in Egypt. And a revolution was happening. Everyday, he would go to the streets of the protests and try to help the wounded. Then he’d go home. And watch the news. That’s when he saw how the media was lying to the people. So Bassem started a Youtube channel where he reported wha ...…
 
I have a trick to getting unstuck. I do it everyday. It works. And I’ve done it everyday for 16 years. I’ve written about and done talks. And then I went on Carolina Millan’s podcast, “Beyond the Hustle.” She read my book, “The Choose Yourself Guide to Wealth” and said it really changed her life. So I wanted to share the interview with you. So ...…
 
Maria Menounos has two stories. Her career story and her brain tumor story. I asked about both. She’s accomplished so much. You’ve seen her on E! News, Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood and the list goes on. “If i introduced you, it would take the full hour,” I said. And soon we were talking about her fight with cancer, her surgery, and t ...…
 
Rob Corddry is an actor and writer. He plays Joe in one of my favorite HBO shows, “Ballers.” He’s also been in “Hot Tub Time Machine,” and was a correspondent on “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart. This is where Rob developed his iconic character: the likable jerk. I wanted to understand how he created this character. Because he looks like he’s ...…

And decided to climb down for a coaching internship at the University of Nebraska. I wanted to know why he wasn’t afraid to change careers so drastically ...…
 
Steve Cohen, my producer, emailed Taylor Swift’s publicist asking if she’d come on the podcast. He knew she was going to say “no.” But he still did it. Steve sends out 200 emails a day, knowing 100% will come back as a “no.” I’m fascinated by this. What’s the point? Where’s the line between annoyance and persistence? I brought Steve on to go ov ...…
 
This is the 5th anniversary of my book “Choose Yourself,” which I am so proud of. The book took off in ways that I could not have expected.

Plus, I get emails and letters everyday from people like ...…

I interviewed “The Fonz!” aka, Henry Winkler. Henry played the Fonz on “Happy Days” for ten years. But after Happy Days ended, he got stuck. “I didn’t have a plan b,” he said. “I just lived my dream for the last ten years. And I did not have anything to replace it with. I was psychically in pain. When you don’t know what you want, it literally ...…
 
Lewis Howes is doing a TV show… he was told “no, not now” from Ellen Degeneres's team. And six months later told “yes” by Facebook. I wanted to know how he made it happen, what it’s about and WHY he pressed forward. (A hint: it has to do with energy). Links and Resources “Inspiring Life with Lewis Howes” “The School of Greatness: A Real-World G ...…

Seth Godin is best known as marketer and an author. But I think of him as one of the great thinkers we have today. He doesn’t create for the masses. He creates for a core group of people. Seth says to imagine this (it’s the essence of his creation, his art and his business): “You have a microphone, what are you going to do with it? My formula i ...…
 
Bishop T.D. Jakes was not born with “Bishop” in his name. He’s a preacher. The first one on my podcast. But he’s ALSO an entrepreneur (His business is his church and he has an entertainment company called TDJ enterprises). Every week, Bishop T.D. Jakes gives sermons to tens of thousands of people on multiple platforms (online and off). And peop ...…
 
Five years ago I interviewed one of my all-time favorite authors and brilliant thinkers. Now, I’m bringing this interview about mastery back to the surface. Before you can master something, you have to know what that “something” is. We all want to master something. And live to our full potential. That’s why we ask ourselves questions like, “Wha ...…
 
Sasha Cohen is a World Champion ice skater. She won silver in the 2006 Winter Olympics when she was just 22 years old. Which means she had to start early.

Mike has tons of stories about TV writing, comedy, and creating something people love. His secret: “We said, ‘No one’s gonna watch this ...…
 
AJ Jacobs is entertaining. I think that’s the first thing I should say before I also say that he’s a six-time New York Times bestselling author. All his books are funny. And they’re extreme. I’ll explain. AJ comes up with crazy ideas and then gives us his “normal” way of life to fully immerse himself in a new (but temporary) way of life. This t ...…
