E52: Simple Breathing Techniques to Heal, Destress and End Anxiety (Max Strom) In my quest to enhance my emotional intelligence I have decided to open my mind and go back to the basics. During my corporate career I found that I got sucked into an energy flow with its own rules and practices… which are far removed from reality.The reality is that we are human beings living in a marvellous body. That we are subject to the laws of nature and that happiness coms from living in harmony with these laws.I realized that as I was striving to make an impact and to climb an imaginary ladder… I was mainly focused on the external world. Until I listened to spiritual teachers explaining that our external world is merely a reflection of what is going on inside of us. As an operations manager I learned that I always want to focus on the inputs, and monitor what happens to the outputs. Since then I’ve been focused more on my inner world: finding balance inside of myself. Magical things started to happen. The more I calmed down, the more things were speeding up.I found that breathing has been instrumental to my growth. My body and mind are my most important tools, and oxygen is my main fuel. For this reason I am very excited to announce my conversation with Max Strom. I first met Max at the 2018 Wisdom in Business event in Amsterdam. He is one of the most impactful speakers I’ve ever seen. Both on stage and in his program Breathe to Heal, he speaks about a topic so fundamental that almost nobody speaks about it…The subtle art of breathing.Whatever you are looking to achieve right now, it starts with putting oxygen into your body. Think about it… what does it mean for you when your body is supercharged with oxygen all day every day? What would it mean for you to resolve any long-term stress or anxiety once and for all?Max Strom explains how this works. Enjoy my meaningful conversation with Max Strom!Stay connected,AlexanderP.S.

E51: The Immense Value of a Trusted Support Network (Dave Mammano)Why figure out everything by yourself when you can do it together? When two or more minds come together in a spirit of harmony, something magical happens. Together we see more clearly, together we reach higher thoughts, together we find creative solutions to our biggest challenges.When you surround yourself with true business friends, you find that they function as a “mental mirror”. What happens when you can freely express your thoughts, ideas, challenges a nd emotions to people whom you trust? You see clearly which thoughts make sense and which of your thoughts have been fooling.The ultimate value you gain from a trusted support network: clarity and confidence. Think about it… clarity and confidence are the two most important building blocks for entrepreneurial success.David Mammano (Dave) has discovered this superpower many years ago. Since then, he has been hosting tons of networking and masterminding events for entrepreneurs in upstate New York. Dave is the founder of the Avanti Entrepreneur Network and the Avanti Entrepreneur Show.

E50: How to be More Authentic and Conscious (John Christian) No matter how hard you push and which strategies you put to work. If it is not authentic, you only create more struggle for yourself and the people around you.Authenticity is probably one of the least talked about success factors in life. Yet in life and in business it is everything. Authenticity breeds trust. When there’s trust, business moves 10x faster than when there’s no trust.John Christian (now 71) has been a famous popstar. Some of his friends are mega rich and mega famous… yet often something is still lacking in their lives.John has several masters who mentor him on how to develop his intuitive intelligence. This has set him off on a path of true authenticity and made him one of the calmest and wisest people I has the privilege of being around. I feel blessed to call John my friend and consciousness mentor. He is one of those rare diamonds who does not show off his wisdom, and instead patiently waits until the student appears and asks him the right questions.After spending 2 transformational days together at my home, I felt compelled to share John’s wisdom with you as well… so I asked to interview him. Please open your mind and be prepared to question everything you think you know… because with this conversation John takes you on a journey that goes beyond the realm of the mind.Enjoy!Click here to watch the interview on YoutubeInteresting stories and strategies that came up in our conversation:- How to be more creative- The one priority in self-development that most entrepreneurs are overlooking- The value of taking full personal responsibility- What we can learn from ancient wisdom from the East- How to recognize if you’re being authentic or subconsciously trying to buy approval- Why meditation is so powerful- The difference between our mental fantasies and what’s really going onTIP: How to benefit most: 1) which insight resonated? 2) how will you apply it today? 3) do it, 4) reflect and decide how you will do more of it.Stay in touch with John Christian:· John Christian’s website: http://lifebalanceportal.com· John Christian’s free e-book “How to Develop Intuitive Intelligence”: http://www.lifebalanceportal.com/new/index.php/products/free-ebook-how-to-develop-intuitive-intelligence· Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/john.christian.54922169Credits (intro and outro music)· Song: Ehrling - Dance With Me (Vlog No Copyright Music)Video Link: https://youtu.be/SXiCWB3kTjI
