"I'm disappointed in you…I have plenty of other men in my life that don't disappoint me" How would you have reacted if someone said that to you? Do you want to direct your life or do you want to be driven by circumstance?  I learned from my mentor, Jim Fortin, that the way you do one thing is the way you do everything. I couldn’t find it to be more true than in my recent week of Scuba Diving here in Roatan, Honduras.  Today I talk about how actively deciding how I wanted my dive experience to go has allowed me to get to 22 dives and over 1000 minutes of dive time in an easy and enjoyable way. I've seen rays, eels, crabs, octopuses, sea horses, and a spectacular night time bio luminescent display known as the string of pearls. Even more amazing is how this way of being translated to dry land as well when an opportunity for confrontation arouse after I declined an invitation to do an advanced night dive from a woman I met this week. She told me, "I'm disappointed in you, I thought this dive would have been up your ally. Well, I have plenty of men in my life who don't disappoint me." How did I respond rather than react?

Thank you to everyone who reached out after the last Podcast, the love and support was overwhelming and I'm so grateful for all of you listening.On this episode I'll be putting my experience with divorce and depression in the context of  Playing the Games of Life. The plural of "Games" is NOT a typo. We often think it's a single game, but after replaying the game of Yahtzee for the first time in over 25 years, I realized that life is not one game, but a collection of games.Are you not enjoying the game of Life? Have you tried moving your focus to playing one of the many other games available? Perhaps the "Game of Six Pack Abs" frustrates you, how about playing the "Game of Movement for Energy" instead? Perhaps you're already way ahead in the game of "Money" and it's now boring, so move to the game of "service".What game of life frustrates you most? Which game lights you up?Got a question or comment about the show? E-mail me at podcast@justinwenck.com. Remember to subscribe so you don't miss the next episode!

I'm out of my house, out of my marriage, and out on the road. On today's show I share where I've ended up after working on my depression that started about a year ago. I'm sharing how what appeared to be a perfect life didn't always feel so perfect. Now that I've let it go, I'm starting to feel how perfect life works out as I seize the opportunity to create my perfect life and not someone else's life. I'm really hesitant to share this, but I'm hoping it can be of benefit to at least one person.
“What does it look like to be the hero of your own life?” That's the question today's guest, Derek Loudermilk, asked himself after getting fired from numerous jobs, dropping out of his PhD program, recovering from failed marriage, and realizing he had been living someone else’s dream.I discuss my similar experiences and we explore how experiences like these lead to an opening of the mind, which allows us to begin to see how our consciousness creates our 3D Reality.Today Derek is a Professional Adventurer, Bestselling Author, Speaker, Digital Nomad, Business Coach, Father, founder of AdventureQuest Travel, and Host of The Art of Adventure PodcastCheck out The Derek Loudermilk Podcast Or his book Superconductors: Revolutionize Your Career and Make Big Things Happen available on Amazon and Audible.Got a question or comment about the show?

Is there anything missing in your life? If so, have you been a person committed to having it? In the past two months I became committed to having better health in the form of less physical pain and more energy through improved diet. This commitment was tested when I went to a recent Mens Yoga Camp where….I wouldn't be able to do yoga like everyone elseI wouldn't be able to eat like everyone elseI was different and I got attention…two things that scare the sh!t out of me, but because I was committed to my health I found a way through and now I feel phenomenal on many levels. On this episode I go in depth on this topic and experience.Got a question or comment about the show?

Are you an Anxious Person? Or are you just a person who sometimes feels anxious? It might seem like small language nuance, but it can have huge implications on how easy you can decide to show up as someone who can handle a situation when needed vs. someone is stuck being a certain way. Would you like to be the person needing attention and to be calmed down or would like to be the one people turn to as a source of calm and strength? When you switch from BE anxious, to just being someone who FEELS anxious times, it opens the possibility who can then decide to FEEL however they want in a situation. Like feeling calm, confident, or excited, how would that feel?Got a question or comment about the show? E-mail me at podcast@justinwenck.com. Remember to subscribe so you don't miss the next episode!

The Perfect Life Meditation Workship went perfectly, right?!?Absolutely Not! There were mistakes, challenges, and a lot of learning. Did I really publish a flyer that said Workship instead of Workshop? You bet I did! And it was all part of the process. The students had a phenomenal experience and I'm ready to share the experience with more people after what I've learned and part of that is sharing the behind the scenes with you in this episode.

"You haven't changed a bit!"Has someone from your past ever said that to you? Or maybe they didn't say it, but you felt it. It could be spending time with the people you grew up with, or longtime friends. Have you noticed that your feelings and behaviors you experience TODAY can be similar to those you experienced 1, 5, 10, or even 20+ years ago? You might think, "I've worked so hard to grow, but I guess I haven't changed enough yet."You're partially right, but maybe not how you think.If you have truly grown and changed would you BE the person who is in the ENVIRONMENT where you "haven't changed a bit?"Today I talk about Being the person who is no longer in the situations, company, or environment that doesn't serve you. This doesn't mean you have to cut off all ties, although you certainly can, but if you change who you are, you change how you show up, and you change your external experience, meaning…You ARE the Person you ARE, not the Person you WERE.If you're in the Sacramento area and want to learn how to transform your life in as little as 5 minutes a day to be less stressed, more energetic, and living from the heart.

Why won't they get it? You've provided everything and yet they continue their old ways.Perhaps it's just not their turn yet?We often think that if we give a seed good soil, water, and sunlight, it's bound to thrive. If it doesn't, then surely it's an error on your part. That's not always true. Some plants require more to get going. Plants that live in area prone to forest fire often require fire for their seeds to germinate.If someone around you isn't growing, perhaps the right fire in their life hasn't happened. And it might not be your job to "set the fire". They could just be a beautiful little seed in this life and allow them the dignity to be that beautiful seed as long as they wish.If you're in the Sacramento area and want to learn how to transform your life in as little as 5 minutes a day to be less stressed, more energetic, and living from the heart.

Meditation, Manifestation, Karma…what do these and other f$cked out spiritual terms actually mean? Nida Kazmi, one of our most downloaded guests, is back to help explain these terms in plain English so you can actually decide if the terms and the concepts they represent actually matter to YOU! If a term doesn't mean anything to you, then it's worth as much as a three dollar bill, which for those international listeners is worth NADA because there is no $3 bill. What really matters is can you utilize these concepts and tools to transform your life to be less stressful, more energetic, and full of purpose. This episode will show you how.Got a question or comment about the show? E-mail me at podcast@justinwenck.com. Remember to subscribe so you don't miss the next episode!

Have you ever been stuck in fear, sadness, anxiety, or anger? Much like the McRib sandwich these emotions should only be enjoyed for brief amounts of time but become unhealthy when they are your entire emotional diet. What's the antidote for the Emotional Ailments?The answer is to place your attention on the emotion you WANT to have instead.  Such as gratitude instead of sadness, forgiveness instead of anger, excitement or trust instead of anxiety or fear. Will this remove the source of your emotional ailment? No! But it will calm your nervous system and show your mind the positive direction you wish to take so that you can make any needed changes and live a life more in the Antidote than in the Ailment.Got a question or comment about the show?

Do you care enough to not care? WHAT?!?! Either I care or I don't Justin. This episode is super important to your own wellbeing and your ability to serve others. Today I talk about how not caring what others think actually allows us to care and serve others more.

How do you exit a Romantic, Friendship, Family, or Business relationship?Eventually there's a time where a relationship in one of these areas has run its course. Have you stayed in the relationship longer than you wanted because the pain of exiting the relationship seemed bigger than the pain of staying?Today I go over how you can exit a relationship more easily and skillfully, which can lead to richer or fulfilling relationships in all areas of your life.Here are the major points I'll cover:Know the reason why YOU are in the relationshipUnderstand why THEY are in the relationshipCommunicate the WHY of the relationship earlyNotice changes in the relationshipRemind or Renegotiate the WHY of the relationshipExit the Relationship Honestly, Kindly, and FirmlyIt's important to remember that even if you do it "perfectly" the other person still might be unhappy, but like all emotions, this is only temporary. Eventually you will both be happier in the long run, which was likely why you entered into the relationship in the first place.Got a question or comment about the show?

Spring Break!!! There's sun, there's fun, and, of course, squirrels gone wild! What could go wrong? With their big fluffy tails and infinite energy, what's not to love? And if you're saying, Justin, a squirrel is just a rat with a fluffy tail, you're wrong, but not for the reason you might think. Squirrels in the wrong environment, like my attic, are actually worse than rats. Traps won't work on them and if you accidentally trap a squirrel, they will destroy EVERYTHING!What does this have to do with engineering your energy and emotions? Well chances are you've allowed the equivalent of squirrels to come into your life as destructive thoughts or destructive relationships."If I just had a bit more money" or "If I just looked a bit better". At first glance these are cute thoughts, but when they take up residence in your mind they become destructive.How about that friend that can never keep a commitment? Or the job that never recognizes you? Each has so much promise on the surface, but they're chipping away at your time and your personal power.What to do?The first step is awareness that you have squirrels. The next step is likely going to require help. To get the squirrels out of my attic I called a professional. For mental and relational squirrels, since you let them in your life, the support and help from others will be essential for getting them out.Got a question or comment about the show?

Is "God" Getting In Your Way? Not the all-powerful, all knowing, almighty, but the actual word "God".If you've started down the path of learning how to live a better life the word "God" has likely come up and you might have positive or negative feelings about the word. Either way, these feelings can get in the way of the message you're meant to receive. Do you want to get your "Aha" now? Or do you want to wait 1, 5, or 20 years for someone to say it to you in a way that you like? Basic Communication means communicating with others so that what's received matches what we intended to get across. The next level is ensuring we infer the best intent when we receive a message, regardless of how it's communicated to us.In this episode I go over how to get the gifts from "God" by substituting a word or phrase that you do connect with, such as Source, Divine, The All, or The Force.Got a question or comment about the show?

Why do you have the life that you have? What are the causes of your current finances, health, and relationships? In today's episode I talk about how your beliefs are a major part of what makes your life your life. I'm not talking about if you're a Christian, Hindu, or other religious beliefs. I'm talking about what do you believe about your ability to sing? Make new friends? Be happy? Whether or not you're aware or not, you have beliefs about these topics. Today, we’ll get aware of these beliefs, question where they come from, and then talk about how to change them. Got a question or comment about the show? E-mail podcast@justinwenck.com.
