Ep #118 - Chris Burns, AKA Mr. "Heart Fire," joins the show today to discuss how to become your greatest possible self. Clients hire Chris to hold them accountable so they can breakthrough their BS while he encourages them to be their best and achieve higher levels of personal and professional performance.Chris hit rock bottom at an early age and figured out how to bounce back stronger than ever. He has since spoken on stages across the United States, and over the last 2 years, he has interviewed more than 500 inspirational role models, influencers and leaders on his weekly, 12-hour live-streamed marathon and podcast called "Becoming Your Greatest Possible Self."In today's interview, I talk with Chris about overcoming a troubled and party-centered teenage life and finding self worth as I too went through a similar stage in my own life. Chris shares his early struggles with fitting in and the important of finding community.Chris found it difficult to let go of the shame and guilt that came with hitting rock bottom and getting arrested, but he learned that putting his past behind him was essential to be able to step into speaking and coaching along with sharing his story. He now believes that each of us can choose to make our stories mean anything. So, if this is true, why not choose an empowering meaning for your life's story. Later in the interview we go behind the scenes regarding his 12-hour marathon podcast. We explore why and how he sets it up this way and talk about how it got started. Chris will share a bit about what he has learned from having 9 powerful interviews a day, and how you can lead your own version of it in your community as a coach, speaker, or entrepreneur.
