Don’t Let Terrorism Shape Your Mind

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Mar 22, 2017


After a visit to the nation’s capital, Jake is ready to share with you some powerful lessons he learned while visiting the giant monuments of past leaders and presidents and all the museums in D.C.
Here’s what’s been covered in a nutshell:

Stories are a powerful way of conveying information/facts!
You may think you live in a terror-free environment, but have you considerd the terror you put on yourself? Or the terror others put on you using their words and actions?
When hope is lost, that is when you die.
Don’t rely on material thinks: when they dwindle, you will, too.
Be nice to the people around you. It will serve you good.
Violence happens when people irritate us.
Don’t let anyone else dictate what you do: turn down that indulging icecream or that drink if they do not represent you!
If you can wake up every single day happy with yourself, you made it!
Be very clear on who you want to become!
The future is in the past: identify with the people who made it into history.

Power Up Your Determination and Passion

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Mar 15, 2017


While being interviewed on someone else’s podcast, Jake was asked what his main message was. How’s that for a tough question? He really needed to encapsulate all that he does through this podcasts in under 2-3 minutes. And how do you do that?
Here’s what’s been covered in a nutshell:

What’s your main message?
In today’s society, effort in hard to put forward.
We are going weaker and weaker in our pain tolerance.
You need both passion and determination to achieve your goals.
Your why is very important, but you still need a great dose of determination to help you through the pain points:

The changing of a routine (getting up early, working out in the AM instead of the PM, eating something different, etc).
Changing the five people in our circle of influence: it’s so difficult to find other friends.
Changing the vision of how we see ourselves.
Trying to prove to ourselves that we can do it.

The biggest thing that keeps us to the ground is our feelings. They are the number one force that is pushing against us every single day.
Our feelings get in the way just as gravitation gets in the way of a space shuttle.
We need passion to help us gravitate between all obstacles between us and our destination

Doubt
Lack of confidence
Haters
No progress
Regret questioning

There are three components to fueling your tank and keeping it full.

Change Takes Courage With Benjamin Tyler

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Mar 08, 2017


As a kid, Benjamin believed he could be and become anything. But his self-confidence was shattered into pieces when he was 12. He felt completely neglected by his own mom, as she focused on seeing her daughter becoming the prom queen: he desperately needed her love, but she couldn’t be there for him! That’s when Benjamin decided he will never be hurt again! These circumstances put him on a track where he always succeeded professionally, but he closed himself emotionally and turned himself to gambling and drugs, blaming everybody else for his situation.

Here’s what’s been covered in a nutshell:

Courage means eliminating your preconceived ideas. Not every belief you hold is true, not even close.
You can have everything you want, but you need to own your circumstances and your own mistakes.
We all have untalked conversations within us and related to our family history.
Find the best method to share these conversations with your family and start your relationships over.
Force yourself to be in positions you want to be, but you still fear.
Stop feeling awkward and inadequate: learn this lesson from kids.
Turn nervousness into excitement!
We are scared by the things that we desire to have!
Surround yourself with the people or the tools that can help you achieve the things you desire.
Instead of envying others, ask them to help you replicate their success.
Write down your dreams: use pen and paper. There is something magic about it!
Ask yourself WHY you need to be and do what you want!
Get around people that are ready to help you achieve those dreams and hold you accountable (coaches, mastermind groups).

Change The Who To Get The What

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Mar 01, 2017


Getting things done is not so much about what you do, but about who you become in order to do certain things.

Feeling a bit confused?

Go ahead and plug your headphones and press the play button to hear Jake’s amazing ideas on the topic of changing who you are so you can change what you do!

Here’s what’s been covered in a nutshell:

Imagine yourself in a casket and hundreds of people surround it, at your funeral: what would you like them to say about you?
Work your face off until you get it (Gary V.)
It takes work, getting outside of your comfort zone in order to become who you want to be.
Who is it that you want to become in 2017 in these areas: your work, your family, your connection, your health and yourself?
Once you write about these topics, it becomes clearer.
But writing things down is just the first step.
Give yourself time to answer this question!
Live by your own theories and standards, not by popular standards out there!
Stop living in the realm of maybe: every decision needs to be a rough YES or NO, according to the person you want to become!
Learn to say no to things, people who are not in alignment with who you want to be!
Stop being a people pleaser! This will cause you to make all the wrong decisions.
When on your dead bed, people will be impressed by the type of person you were, not by the things you had!
There will be haters, but ignore them. You are on your path to who you want to become!

Your Questions Answered, volume 1

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Feb 22, 2017


Today, Jake does something new: for the first time in over 170 episodes, he has decided to use his background and knowledge to answer some of the questions you, his listeners, have asked him.
Here’s what’s been covered in a nutshell:

In order to motivate people who have lost their passion, you need to understand people’s And each one of us has their own why.
Getting to know a group’s why is time consuming, so you could create a shortcut by changing people’s environment, both physical and emotional: rearrange your working space, put different pictures on the walls, adjust your body posture.
You need to bring out the right power within yourself at the right time.
Everthing that happens for you is your work life is not personal, it’s business.
Own your position. There will always be people who think you are not good enough.
Sit the people who disrespect you one of one. When you separate the individuals from a group, you’ll be surprised how different their attitude and response will be.
Do whatever you can to help the people in your team achieve their goals and ask them to do the same for you.
Always have respect for the individual you talki to: never get angry, never get frustrated and do not stoop to the level they want you to. Keep cool and be positive.
Life is design to challenge us and push our buttons. Do your best not to live there. Put your life into perspective.
Envision the person you strive to become and live like that person – FAKE it till you make it!
Take care of your body: it is a great sounding board of what happens in your outside life.
If you feel you are overwhelmed, it may be because you put the wrong things in your body and you are sleep deprived.
Everything is a season. You are now down, but the sun will come out for you, too!

Nutrition is your Energy

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Feb 15, 2017


The field of nutrition is well researched, yet full of controversies.

The caveat of this episode is to take Jake’s recommendations with a grain of salt, or better said check them against the advice you can get from your primary medical care giver.

We all want to eat healthier, but even those who apply themselves to putting only healthy stuff in their mouth are distracted by the everyday grind and need to be reminded of the important principles of nutrition.
Here’s what’s been covered in a nutshell:

What you put in your mouth is absolutely your choice.
Sometimes, your body craves certain foods. And those foods are usually not the ones that you can have at every meal.
Win the battle of food every day.
Here is what Jake does every day in order to get energy from nutrition:

He has 2 glasses of water with freshly squeezed lemon juice every morning.
A glass full of water with a vegetable protein blend, Udo’s oil (omega 3, 6 and 9) and a scoop of coconut oil.
A green smoothy after half an hour: spinach, a banana, some frozen fruit, chia seeds, celery and almond milk.
5 hours later, an oatmeal meal: rolled oats, raisins, walnuts, almonds, chia seeds, flaxseeds and cinnamon.
Salad for lunch and dinner. Greens are the real source of energy and mental power.
Dinner at the firehouse: usually hearty and not to healthy, but starting your day on the write foot, it allows you for unhealthy food choices once in a while.
Before bed, water with apple cider vinegar.
2 gallons of water a day.

Frozen greens, fruits and vegetables are the second best option to the freshly picked ones.
If you can have organic meats, it’s ok to have the fat, too. Do not it the fat from non-organic meats.
Have healthy snacks on hand.
Ideas from the Grain Brain book:

Reduce inflamation (it comes from dairy, grains and vegetable oils). Go on a gluten-free diet.
Eat healthy fats. Create a high fat, high fat and low-carb diet.
Put good bacteria in your belly. Abandon sugar – it comes under over 60 names.
Reduce stress and balance the hormones in your life. Avoid GMOs.
Fitness is an important part of the equation.

Ideas from the Always Hungry book:

Everything you put into your mouth is either helping you or hurting you.
Coffee is ok to drink in moderation, until 2 pm (because it has a half life).
Remove inflamation from grains, seeds and vegetable oil and dairy.
Our brains consume 30% of the calories we eat everyday.

Getting Called Stupid Is Not So Stupid After All

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Feb 08, 2017


 

Stupid is the most criticized title Jake has coined for himself, but it does pay dividends.

Stupid means lacking common sense or/and intelligence. It is a negative word, but Jake has some creative ideas about leaning in into stupid.
Here’s what’s been covered in a nutshell:

Great people like Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Edison, V. Tesla, Alexander Graham Bell, Tim Burns, all these guys have done something stupid and were considered stupid for even trying to do something.
We now consider them geniuses as they have transformed our world, but back in the day, they were simply considered to do a stupid attempt at something which was considered impossible.
We use this word, stupid, as a shield to protect ourselves.
“I don’t have the time”, “ I am not educated”, “I do not have the experience”, “I don’t have enough money” are the four negotiations tools we all use when we are not comfortable doing something we deem stupid.
Stupid not acted upon leads to future regret.

Build Your Brain With 3 Easy Tips

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Feb 01, 2017


 

Every stimulus triggers a response, but between the two, there is one thing you can control: it’s called THE GAP. Will you allow the stimulus to win, or the response to win?

Jack Canfield has this equation that most of us need to sink in: events + response = outcome. There is no way to control a flat tire. But you can control the way you respond to that stimulus.

Becoming mentally tough is all about controling that gap.
Here’s what’s been covered in a nutshell:

98% of all the people who quit on anything do so because of themselves, not because of an external factor.
Three things can help you become mentally stronger: meditation, time blocking and punching your mind with positive thoughts.
Meditation is one of the craziest things out there, but it is scientifically proven to help you.
You need to practice it in order to enhance your brain without a physical input.
The WIN principle by Michael Phelps will help you block time more efficiently.
Use time blocks: dial into something and focus entirely on that one thing. Start with short time blocks of 5 minutes and then increase from there.
Remove any distractions: turn off notifications, phone on air plane mode, etc.
Remind yourself of what you are doing, you risk forgetting what you are working on.
Recall: use a catch it all system to capture any random ideas you might have during that block of time.
For every negative thought you have, you need to have three positive thoughts.
Simple things done over time will have amazing results.

Personal Development With A Magical Twist With Vinh Giang

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jan 25, 2017


From a hesitant kid to an influential speaker and magician, Vinh Giang had a roller coaster journey. Listen in to today’s show has he sheds light on the most important lessons he has learned along the way.
Here’s what’s been covered in a nutshell:

If the rule: “A card can not float” is not universally true, what other rules you go buy are also not true?
Perception is reality. Magicians learn how to control your reality, but you can change your perception, too.
A magic trick is just a problem you can not seem to solve. To solve it, you need to look at it through multiple perspectives. You can see multiple perspectives, but you need to force yourself to see from different angles.
Other people can see other realities in you that you do not see.
Sleight of hand and showmanship go hand in hand in the magicians’ world. To you, this means you need to be both technically good at what you do and also become a great communicator.
The dots won’t connect looking forward, but they will connect looking in the past!

Can You Have It All?

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jan 18, 2017


WNWQNW – this has been Jake’s Dad’s car plates for the longest time. It stands for “Winners never win, quitters never win” – a great quote by Vince Lombardi.

Here’s other two quotes by Vince Lombardi that Jake likes and we hope they resonate with you, too:

Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect.

Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.

You may think someone who utters this type of quotes had it all figured out. But you’re wrong. Seldom anyone has it all figured out. Vince Lombardi had a struggling relationship with his wife and a broken relationship with his son, too.

Listen to this episode as Jake is getting real on this perfection thing.
Here’s what’s been covered in a nutshell:

We all gravitate in these five areas of our life: family, your financials, your body, your connection, your inner life.
If you take out one of them, you fail.
Ask yourself these questions as you ponder if having it all is doable:

If you could have it all, what would it look like?
What would you have to do daily to reach that?
Are you willing to have it all?

How to have it all?

Be self-aware of how you feel. Being self-aware means digging deeper than the surface feeling.
Destress and focus. You can not mix business with family. Get the grout out of your system.
Feed the team captains. Hang out with them and cater to their needs.

The One Thing With Geoff Woods

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jan 11, 2017


Today’s show is an interview with Geoff Woods, a fellow podcaster who is launching his new podcast, The One Thing, in January 2017. It is  based on the best-seller with the same name and it is aimed to revolutionize your world.
Here’s what’s been covered in a nutshell:

What all of us have, even if we do not possess much, is our awesomeness.
The surprising truth about the people who achieve the most is that they are hyper focused on their “one thing”.
The biggest mistake people do when trying to build new habits is that they set the bar too high. And then they feel like a failure.
You can only feel like a failure for so long until you quit.
When setting up new habits, it is really important to know what you CAN do, not what you should do or what your wife or boss tells you to do.
The “one thing” makes everything else easier or unnecessary.
Don’t do tasks that are below your productive dollars per hour.
We unconsciously choose the hard way everyday, because we try to reinvent the wheel on most of our challenges.
On the raw level, people want to help each other. So reach out to people around you and they will connect you to others who can help you!
People don’t relate to you through your success, but through your struggles.
Embracing your vulnerabilities is one of the biggest powers your have.

Happy-ER New Year, How to be happy

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jan 04, 2017


 

Happiness is what we really strive for, isn’t it? Happiness is the ultimate goal! We want to lose weight, to earn more money, to have a more pleasant job, to pay our student loans, in order to become happier.
Happiness is what is inside the gift box, but we wrap it with different words and goals.
Jake is sharing with you, his freaking awesome audience, some wise words on how to be happier in 2017.
 
Here’s what’s been covered in a nutshell:

You can choose happiness.
There is no pill for motivation or happiness.
Love not just the outcome, but the process, too!
All of us have awesomeness inside and it is about time we showed it to the world.
Instead of focusing on our weaknesses, we need to focus on developing our strengths.
Happiness is being what you were designed to be and being what you were designed to be has to do with your strengths, not your weaknesses.
Any job can be a calling and any calling can be a job.
Happiness can be found in three areas: how you behave, what you think and what goals you set in your life daily.
If you have a plan for the day, you have all the changes to be happy that day.
50% of our happiness is fixed, wired in your genetics, 10% comes from our life circumstances, and 40% is dictated by our behavior.

Rewind Your Achievements In 2017

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Dec 28, 2016


If you were to be this big film director and were asked to make a movie out of the moments in 2016, what movie would it it? What genre would it be? Action, drama, comedy, romantic?

But regardless of the way your life unfolded in 2016, you have the option to make 2017 just a tad bit different.
Here’s what’s been covered in a nutshell:

Envision your future. Humans are the only beings that have the ability to plan our future.
You are not what you have been.
“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. – Albert Einstein
Think six months from where you are: June 1 of 2017 – where will you be then? Do you have a specific goal to achieve by that date? Let asume you want to lose 10 pounds by June 1st
If you do have a goal, in order to achieve it, you need to break it into 5-10 steps. For our example, you would ned to educate yourself, get a gym membership, eat healthy, and the like
Now, for the NEXT month, what do you need to do in order to achieve your mark? Maybe change your diet, change your routine so that it allows you to work out, maybe wake up earlier.
Next, what do you need to do this next week so that you can achieve your goal of losing 10 pounds by June 1st, 2017? Maybe eat healthy 5 to 6 days a week – this means you need to plan your meals, have healthy snack around you.
What can you do 24 hours from now to make sure you are in alignment with your end goal? Maybe go to the gym? Have 2 healthy meals and one cheat meat?
What can you do in the next 5 minutes to get you in alignment with your weight-loss goal? Maybe research gyms aroung your home or your job? Maybe find health snack bars around?
Going with this strategy, you will create momentum, and the snow ball will start rolling.
What you want to achieve is a reflection of what you are!
Work your goals backwards!

Power of a Routine – with Wilson Lawrence

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Dec 21, 2016


As you may know already, Jake has been receiving a lot of videos of you, his listeners, screaming “ I am freaking awesome”. This week, he received a video of around a dozen employees of a digital agency all the way in Sophia, Bulgaria. Isn’t that cool?

Jake said it was the best Christmas gift he has ever received!

When you hear the impact the OSR show has had in people’s lives, you can only believe him.

Stay close and listen to this interview with Wilson Lawrence, a British soldier who did not know what to do with his life after spending 12 year in the military.
Here’s what’s been covered in a nutshell:

A former military man, Wilson was hired to package magazines for Reader’s Digest.
When his boss promoted him to the customer service department, he found out he had a knack for dealing with difficult people. This skill helped him at his next job, as a head hunter.
After several other jobs, he met his partner 16 years ago, but that relationship has recently unfolded.
Finding himself alone, with his dog, Wilson felt he had to take responsibility for his life and started researching and reading on personal development.
He clinged like a mad mad to Hal Elrod’s book, Miracle Morning, after he heard Jake talk about it in this podcast (see link to that episode in the “Mentioned in this episode” section of the show notes).
Doing the morning routine, helped Wilson become more disciplined.
Leadership starts with yourself. In order to be a great leader for others, you need to be a great leader for yourself.
Decision-making, memorizing, recalling, inhibiting and understanding are the functions of the prefrontal cortex. But the prefrontal cortex needs to be reset every once in a while in order to function well.
Being effective means focusing on the right things.
Being efficient is doing the right things in the right order.
Self reset is unlearning the bad habits and attitudes that you learned after you were born.
Having some one believe in themselves as a result of your work is the best thing that can happen to anyone.

Create An Impact Now

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Dec 14, 2016


If an Italian guy who owned a restaurant told you the best olive oil is to be found at CostCo, would you believe him? And if the same 87-year guy told you family is important, would you take his word for it?

Sometimes, apparently insignificant things or actions have the largest impact on other people, even on your family. Listening to this episode, you will learn of how Jake and his team mates made an impact on a complete stranger.
Here’s what’s been covered in a nutshell:

You never know anyone’s story, so do not judge. Until you pull back the curtain, you don’t know what is hiding behind someone’s pulled up look.
When you share your story with people you do not know, they are likely to get on board.
An impact is created when you take your resources and use them to make an intreruption in someone’s life.
It’s difficult to make an impact when you are bound by prejudice and are doubtful that your help will be used the way it should be used.
You, in some way, can alter someone else’s day, month, year and life.
Go out in the world and find ways to impact one person today!

Crush Limiting Beliefs With These 4 Cs

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Dec 07, 2016


 

Limiting beliefs tell us the story before it even happens.

“There is no way I can grow a business because I am not organized enough”, “I won’t ever be able to lose weight: obesity runs in my family”. We all tell ourselves something along those lines. This episode will show you what to do to crush your limiting beliefs.
Here’s what’s been covered in a nutshell:

Personal development makes you humble.
Leadership starts with yourself. In order to be a great leader for others, you need to be a great leader for yourself.
Personal development is all about challenging yourself to conquer the stuff you suck at.
Limiting beliefs affect all of us, even if you don’t think they do.

 The four Cs for crushing limiting beliefs
1. Catch it
Your limiting beliefs will manifest themselves differently in different scenarios. You need to identify what the limiting belief is for that particular situation and really verbalize it for yourself. In order to catch the limiting belief, all you need to do is to be self aware. Self-awareness is the number one principle of personal development.  Whenever your mind switches from the positive to the negative, you need to be present and catch that moment.
2. Cover it
When your mind switches from the positive to the negative, you need to force yourself to replace the negative mindset with a positive one. It is very unusual for someone to feel like doing that. Nobody wants to wake up in the morning at 4 AM to read a personal development book, that why people force themselves to do it when they do not feel like doing it.
3. Challenge it
You and I are competitive individuals. We all love to win and want to win at life. you have a job because you want something, you set goals because you want to achieve them.

When we challenge the limiting belief, we are forcing ourselves into thinking beyond that limiting belief. As a result, we can create a game out of that challenge, a game that we can win.
4. Conquer it
Through the process of challenging ourselves to do what we initially thought we could’t do, we will conquer the limiting belief. You need time and availability to conquer, to bash those limiting beliefs. If you decide to let Jake help you allocate time and availability to crush your limiting beliefs, join his www.selfresetmastery.com program.

Personal Change, Quick or Slow?

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Nov 30, 2016


Hoping you had a great Thanksgiving day!

But even if you didn’t because you were down with a flu or a bug, like Jake was, let’s remind ourselves we are freaking awesome. Even more so when we do not feel like it!

Shouting out “I am freaking awesome” in a power position is one of the best things you can do to release some much needed endorphines.
Here’s what’s been covered, in a nutshell:

Good decision making skills are difficult to acquire when you are dependent on someone else, be it your spouse or your boss.
Also, commitment is not a strong point of any person who depends on someone else.
Having an accountability partner is one of the major success factors when you are trying to change yourself. If you do not have one, find one!
Personal change does take time! Do not get discouraged when you do not see instant changes!
Take one day at a time and resolve to keep acquiring great habits.
Working out now is for ten years from now.
Make training activities fun, otherwise you run the risk of getting bored quickly.
Do not manipulate recipes and rules you need to follow.

Wed, Nov 23, 2016


 

Jake challenges us today to find one thing we are really thankful for today. And embrace it and take a mental picture of what that thing makes us feel.
Here’s what’s been covered, in a nutshell:

We all have been outgoing and gooffy, but society has changed us to want to fit the norm, to stay withing the boundaries.
Those who are successful have made a conscious decision to not be bothered if they are different.
You, yourself, have so much to give, but you are so worried about what everyone around you is thinking about you.
People give up their dreams because the result, the dream, is still invisible. Somewhere along the way, doubt man makes you think you will never succeed achieving your dream and you eventually give up.
People give up their dreams because of other people, external factors that affect us internally.
You need to believe in what you are striving for!
Surround yourself with individuals that love you, support you and hold you accountable.

Money Is The Root Of All Wealth, Author Tobias Martochko, Self Reset Mastery Member Turned Author

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Nov 09, 2016


 

Recorded on the day when the US elects its 45th US President, this episode reminds us that our life is not going to be changed by an individual. There is no impact of the election on you personally unless you allow it to impact you personally. You still have the choice to be grateful for the things that go on in your life. You have the choice to make small and big personal decisions that affect your life for the better.

If you let an external force rung your life, you are over!
Here’s what’s been covered, in a nutshell:

Money is at the core of many marriage problems and we need to educate ourselves on this topic if we want to have a solid marriage.
Track your income and your expenses. With the help of technology, you have zero excuses not to do it.
Put money in your retirement account. Start a ROTH IRA or a 401 K.
Get out of credit card debt.
Have an emergency fund and keep in with an online bank – it takes 2-3 days to access it and that’s why you will only use it in case of an emergency.
Stay away from cash savings if you are not a disciplined person.
You only need will power until you develop a habit. After that, you go on autopilot!

Goal Failure Syndrome, You Have It and Here Is The Cure.

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Nov 02, 2016


It happened to Jake this past week, and it can happen to you, too: not going by industry standards, because, well, they are too easy and simple to do. We need to follow industry standards because they were set up by people who know their game. Moreover, we need to make sure our response is going to be in a positive light.

Here’s what’s been covered, in a nutshell:

When people advise you how to do certain things, they don’t do it because they are arrogant and want to control your life, they do it because they’ve been there and care for you.
GFS or Goal Failure Syndrome has four causes: fear, no sense of urgency, a “don’t care” attitude and lack of support.
There are two types of fear: the fear of losing something and the fear of not being enough.
The latter one is more prominent and damaging: not enough resources, not enough money, not enough connections to achieve the things we strive for.
Our goals need to have urgency incorporated in it. And they need to be big so that it scares us a bit.
When you set such goals, you can either fail on yourself or you can feel better about yourself after you have achieved it.
Failing on yourself is the most mind-boggling and senseless feeling ever, and you will not want to experience it again.
Know why you set goals, how they affect you and others, how to set them.
Share your goals with friends and family and people who care.

How To Change The Past

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Oct 19, 2016


 

Dwelling on the past does not help us in our personal development journey. Most of the times, we are happy to get past our history, our past and live in the now. Of course, the past can not be edited, can not be deleted, just as we do with a word document or as Jake could do with a podcast episode he does not like.

But he does offer us today three strategies we can apply in order to change that past just a bit.
Here’s what’s been covered, in a nutshell:
 Acceptance. We need to accept the past for what it is. By accepting it, we remove any emotions related to it. We don’t need to love it, hate it, just accept it for what it is, or better said for what it was.

Apologize. If you want to accept the past, you need to apologize. As tough as it may seem, this is the only way to bring yourself back to a neutral position. That noise, the brain fog associated with your past will be lift up once you do just that: apologize.

Understand the past is a part of your journey. Just as mythologist Joseph Campbell put it, we are all heros of our own journey. And the past is just a part of our identity, of our history, that will help take us to where we need to go. This journey circulates around many areas: our relationships, our financial lives, our passion and purpose and can last for a while. But its mission is not to hold us back, but trully help us become what we need to be.

If your past is a hot mess, please take these three steps described above.

Change Your Level of Thinking

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Oct 12, 2016


Jake lost his sunglasses the other day. Big deal, you may say!

And a big deal it is since this little story served as inspiration for today’s podcast.

The mantra for this episode is a quote from one of the most intelligent man who ever lived, Albert Einstein: “We can not solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them”.
Here’s what’s been covered, in a nutshell:

When you are looking to change a habit, no matter the area in your life it relates to, do not rely on past ways you tried to change that habit before.

Instead, try these four approaches.

Read books. Buy these three types of books: an old-school book, a popular book on the topic of your choice and an odd book, one that gets the most controversy. Read them fully, take notes and come up with your own ideas about the topic.
Act as if. This approach can work two ways. First, act as if you already changed that habit and have successfully conquered it. Secondly, act as if you were a character in a movie play and put somebody else’e glasses and look through them at your own situation.
Replicate what successful people are doing. First, figure out what you want. Secondly, find someone who was in the same place where you are now. See what they did. Follow it and adjust the results.
Build that new habit. It takes an average of 16 to 216 days to change a habit and to implement a new routine in your life. And it takes discipline to keep doing it. Do not rely on your emotions and motivation to achieve things, but use discipline as your go to resource.

Unleash Your Animal With Brotha James

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Oct 05, 2016


Now, Jake did it again! He opened the show with an entertaining song by Brotha James, a singer that is all over the place now.

You can actually get the song you hear in the intro, if you like it as much as I did. Just text “animal” at 33444. Go, do that right now, it’s free!
Here’s what’s been covered, in a nutshell:

Brotha James went from being an athlete, to being a very successful sales person who did not enjoy what he was doing. So he turned to music and personal development, and found the secret to a happy life from him: combining the two.
If you do not like your daily activities, try to envision what activities you might like and what are the skills you need in order to perform those activities. And go educate yourself to get those skills.
If you have a hard time finding enjoyable activities, go back in time to when you were a kid and remember what you used to love doing. What you enjoyed the most before anyone told you what you need to be and to do.
If your life was just awesome, what would be 15 things that are present in your life?
Investigate new things to find your passion If your childhood passions do not match your current life style and interests.
Look in the future and see how your future life will be and reverse engineer that into your current life with a plan!
You get into the new schedule slowly, until it gains some momentum and becomes a part of your life.
Be focused on your goal, but be flexible about the different ways to get there.

How to make Great Decisions

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Sep 28, 2016


Wish there was a science of how to make decisions? Would that make your life easier when it comes to making decisions?

Well, there isn’t. There are just decisions we ponder on, and decisions we take on the spur of a moment.

There is no secret of how to make good, quick or long decisions either.

But the good news is that there are some principles you can rely on in order to make good decisions.

Ready to find them out?

Reference your experiences.
Go with your gut.
Understand the outcome.

Here’s what’s been covered, in a nutshell:

Better questions get better answers.
Analyze the event and reflect on it. How could you make it smoother? What could you make better?
Be present in the moment. It is the difference between an average job and a great job!
When you make bad decisions, take a moment and look back and identify what exactly caused it to be a bad decision. Was it the timing? The sequence? The location?
Your experiences are only as good as you reflect on them and analyze what you could improve on.
Stand up to the decisions that you make.
Work out your decision muscle. At first, it will be flabby and sore, but in the end, it will pay out.
What is your legacy and what will you be known for in history?

Leadership is Trust, Trust is Character

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Sep 21, 2016


If you thought screaming “I am freaking awesome” is weird, wait until Jake asks you to scream it in your head, as he does in this eclectic episode.
Here’s what’s been covered, in a nutshell:

Do self checks and be aware of what causes you to not feel great.
Leadership is required in many areas of our lives, including the areas where we only manage things, not people.
Integrity, authenticity and discipline are all characteristics of true leaders.
People trust leaders because they perceived them as creatures of character.
Integrity = being honest 100% of time.
Authenticity = no games, just you.
Discipline = do what you say you would do.
Things that are easy to do are easy not to do!!! – Jim Rohn

When you want to do, be or become more, surround yourself with people who have good radiation on you!
The first time you do something, it might be a total mess. Do it anyway! You will make progress as you do that the second and third time!
Jake’s life event scheduled for next year will be a living proof of this concept. Book the 2017 Self Reset Power event in your calendar: 9th and 10th of September 20017, in Milwaukee, at the Crown Plaza Hotel, near the International Airport!
People walked the burning fire for 3 to 17 times at the event!
Radiation and connection is what happened at Jake’s event last week.
Start believing that you are freaking awesome!
Share the podcast with someone in your life that needs it!

154: The Science of Fear

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Aug 31, 2016


Today, Jake is deconstructing one of the strongest emotions: FEAR.

If you listen through the end, you will truly have an AHA moment and start thinking that you can conquer fear.
Here’s what’s been covered, in a nutshell:

We all have fear, whether we admit it or not.
We choose not to do certain things because we are scared of their
Be aware of the blind spots. Ask someone you trust to tell you what they think you are afraid of.
When things don’t go well, we blame fear: fear of being rejected, of speaking for yourself, etc.
Embrace the suck and honor the struggle and move forward.
Fear presents itself to us disguised as one of these four masks: exhaustion, interference, patterns and, surprisingly, love.
Patterns absolutely stall us and don’t allow us to move forward into our lives.
Where are you in the fear quadrant?
The only way to get out of the fear state is to repeatedly do those things that frighten you.
Do not let the fear hold you back.

153: Author Megan Watt – Discover, Act, Engage

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Aug 24, 2016


Today’s show is an interview, haven’t you all missed this type of show?

Jake is interviewing Megan Watt, the author of a newly published book, called Discover. Act. Engage.: A 60-Day Catalyst Guide on Accomplishing Your Someday Goals.

They start off the conversation by defining what a some-day goal is; basically, it is a more digestible, attainable dream. What started as an activity book, turned into a full fledged paperback book that teaches people how to achieve their someday goals.
Here’s what’s been covered in this episode:

Negative self talk – the beast inside your brain – is the number one killer of someday goals. We need to learn how to tackle that voice and shut it down as quickly as possible.
Small, incremental steps are the secret to reaching your someday goals.
It’s important that we all hike our own hike – we all have to figure out what works for us and stick with it. If something works for others, it’s not necessarily something that works or should work for you, too.
Writing a goal makes you 40% more likely to achieve it. If you share that goal and your progress on it, you are more than 70% more likely to achieve it.
Use your screensaver as a reminded of your ten most important someday goals.
Our someday goals can be all over the board, not just in the financial, or professional spectrum. You could attach a number to them, but the why behind the goals is more important.

151: Rio Olympics Dreams Do Come True

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Aug 10, 2016


Today’s the day when Jake announces the launch of his first t-shirts,  the “be freaking awesome” t-shirts! And he is giving away 10 t-shirts to the first 10 people who subscribe to his newsletter at www.resetgift.com.
The six steps to achieving any goal!
Dream it
What do you want for you, for your family, for your loved ones?

Dreams make humans human: you can place your mind where ever you want to!
Build it
This step is not actually the only action step, as most people would think. The following one are also action steps, too. There are two ways you could go about doing this step.

The first one is to imagine you already accomplished your goal and work backwwards from there.

The second way to do it is to break down from where you are to where you want to go.
Read it
When you have established your plan of action, read it! Reading connects your conscious world with your unconscious world. The storybook method is very helpful for this step, yet very complex. Jake shares indepth knowledge about the storybook method in his Self Reset Mastery group, with his private coaching clients and the people who come to Self Reset Power seminars. The storybook method is employed by celebrities, writers and other type of people who achieve large goals.
See it
Visualization is not just picturing the end result, but imagining yourself in all the details of the journey that takes you there. Imagine how you will handle even aspects that seem unlikely to happen.
Feed it
Watch documentaries, read books, interview people, research new discoveries in your field. Enhance your world!
Believe it
And this has nothing to do with your religious belief. You need to be absolutely, positively sure that if your path in life!

All these steps require action on your part! If you set a goal and work until your fingers are raw and your mind is numb and your body wants to quit, the experience of achieving it will be mind blowing, almost an out of body experience!

150: High Performance Tips With Jarrod Warren

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Aug 03, 2016


Episode 150: High performance tips with Jarrod Warren
Today’s show is an interview with the awesome podcaster Jarrod Warren of Success 101 Podcast. Amazingly, Jake’s show is the first one that Jarrod stumbled upon online while searching for some sleep related stuff. And here they are, at an open mic night, sharing casual ideas around podcasting, business, and personal development.
Here’s what’s been covered in this awesome episode

Invest time in listening to podcasts and audio books.
Create a morning routine. Do what works for you, but keep to it!
Here is what Jarrod does to keep him productive: apple cider vinegar in the morning and then vitamins on an empty stomach, probiotics, clean eating and using a stand up desk.
We need to engage more with the front part of our brains and less with the middle part of the brain.
Sleep is important. If you do not get enough sleep, your brain will erode itself and start shrinking.
Sleep deprivation will leak into other areas of your life and will negatively impact the kind of person you are.
Use technology to help you with your sleep tracking.
Use delta waves for better sleep.
Avoid light during before and during sleep time. Even a small LED light will influence the quality of your sleep. Did you know that skin can detect light, not just your eyes?
Pay attention with who you associate yourself with! Your relationships will impact everything, including your sleep!
Believe in yourself, even if there is not (yet) a big accomplishment to credit you for!
Speak out your affirmations! You anyway talk to yourself, and its usually negative talk. So intentionally decide to talk to yourself in a positive way through your affirmations!
Define what success means to you! Don’t chase what success means to others!
Change will not come overnight! There is not a success button, so be in the race for the long term and gradually incorporate what you need to do to change in your daily life!

149: Thriving beyond With Vidal Cisneros Jr.

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jul 27, 2016


Episode 149: Thriving beyond with Vidal Cisneros Jr. 
Today’s show is meant to put your life into perspective like nothing else. Jake brought a close friend with an amazing and touching story to share with you golden nuggets of wisdom.

His name is Vidal Cisneros Jr, a road construction site manager turned coach, speaker, writer and published author. The roller coaster road he’s been on is nothing less than super inspiring and Vidal so wholeheartedly shares the good and the ugly of his journey from tragedy to triumph to help ignite your purpose.  An inmate turned purpose coach, how’s that for a powerful comeback?

Listen to this interview to find the whole stoty: http://operationselfreset.com/149-thriving-beyond/
Here’s what’s been covered in this awesome episode

Put a deadline on your dream as Vidal did when he promised himself he would not be a construction site manager in a year.
Don’t be afraid to hire professional help when you need it. Yes, do your due dilligence as a good coach is not cheap, but take that leap of faith and just roll with it.
The major benefit of coaching is the mindset shift!
We are not physical beings with a spirit, but spiritual beings with a body!
Do not neglect your family even if you feel like you have to focus on your business and personal development!
Bless those who harm you: it will change you from inside out and lift you up from the rock bottom!
Wreckless driving and social drinking can be broken away from.
Praying and fasting are so powerfull when you need to break from a vice!
Community does have power within it. Join communities like AA, Rotary clubs, Toastmasters, success meetups. Life coaches can also connect you with a lot of people and professionals.
It takes time to unpack your purpose. But once you find it, chase it like crazy.

148: Success Instinct

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jul 20, 2016


Episode 148: Success instinct
 

There’s a secret tool that can help you become successful. And it is free to use: that tool is between your two ears – your brain!

Today, we touch on things like goals with a twist and brain psychology, in trying to put that tool to good use.
Goal setting with a twist:
We all understand the process of achieving a goal, because millions of people have spoken about it: setting up goals?figuring out the way to get there?having an accountability partner?achieving the goal?celebrating the goal?setting up another goal.

This process applies to all types of goals, from weight loss to better relationships. The framework is identical for all types of goals, the way you go about it varies on the type of goal you have.

The theory is well known and relatively simple, so why is it that you did not complete your goals in the past?

Why were you not able to achieve a goal you set up in the past?

Chances are you can not blame the process, but your phychology. You know what your goal is, you know how to get there, but you don’t achieve your goals because your own psychology interferes in the game plan. Your phychology is activated by either pain or bliss/pleasure. If you are not in pain, then you rely on bliss as the motivating factor.

And what do you do when your pleasure train runs out of gas? What do you do when you run out of hope, belief and confidence?

It all comes down to your Reticular Activating System (RAS) an important part of our brain. Its most important role is to remind ourselves of what we are looking for. So, if you want to make sure you accomplish your goals, make sure you review them consistently. Write them down for yourself every single day and review them constantly. This is what Suze Orman did on her way to becoming a powerful woman in the financial realm. And it worked for her!
Success instinct
Is the process of realizing that we are all here to do something great. We have more to give than we are doing. A lot of us are looking for things outside of us that will help us get where we want to get. Jake is always looking for the next book to read, the next seminar to attend, the next coach to hire. But he shouldn’t do that!

And now your turn: what is getting in the way of your success instinct? Once you discover it, you will get back on track. Hoping one of these quotes will stick with you and help you see your success instinct:

“Success in life is the result of good judgment. Good judgment is usually the result of experience. Experience is usually the result of bad judgment.” – Tony Robbins

“The greatest mistake a man can make is to be afraid of making one”. – Elbert Hubbard

“I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work”. – Edison talking about the invention of the light bulb.
“If the first plan which you adopt does not work successfully, replace it with a new plan; if this new plan fails to work, replace it in turn with still another, and so on, until you find a plan which does work. Right here is the point at which the majority of men meet with failure, because of their lack of persistence in creating new plans to take the place of those which fail”.  Napoleon Hill

 
Here’s what Jake said, in a nutshell:

The brain is to blame when you do not achieve your simply set out goals.
Your brain needs to be trained in order to work for you and not against you.
People are motivated by either pain or please to achieve goals. Pain is the greater motivator of the two.
Remind yourself everyday what the heck you want and write it down everyday!
You can only defend yourself against yourself with the right mindset.
What is that “something greater” that you are destined to achieve?

147: Passion + Filter + 100%

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jul 13, 2016


Episode 147: Passion + Filter + 100%
 

Jake is using his new microphone setup today so bear with him if you are here for the first time.

In light of the recent shootings in Texas,  Jake is reminding us that the only thing we have control over is how we relate to what happens to us.
Passion
As someone who deals with police officers on a daily basis, Jake knows how badly treated they are. He knows some of them had woken up that day knowing they were doing what they were called to do in life. Some others had woken up dreading their job!

Chances are, most of us find ourselves in this last position: we do things in life that we do not enjoy! If we were to die today, we would not be happy.

So Jake challenges us to find that spark, that little magical something that makes us happy and pursue it!

Filter
Secondly, Jake challenges us to stop doing the things that hurt us internally, like newsmedia. We need to be able to choose what goes into our brain and what controls our thoughts. We need to control what we see, what we hear, what we put into our bodies.

100%
Moreover, the next step is to assume extreme leadership. You need to be able to take ownership of all the decisions you take that turn wrong! Some people will think it is silly of you to do that, but that’s the only genuine thing to do! Owning your decisions means you are 100% responsible. And this goes true for work and family relationships, too: each of two partners needs to own 100% of his or her decisions.

 
Here’s what Jake said, in a nutshell:

Find that magical thing that makes you happy and pursue it.
Cut out newsmedia. If something is big enough out there, you will hear about it!
You can’t control the weather, the economy and what everybody else is doing. But you can control what’s most important: YOURSELF!
Make sure negative things are not thrown into your life!
Do not depend on other people to take on responsilitity! It will make you lazy.
Take 100% responsibility of what happens to you!

146: The habit of doing things that failures don’t like to do!

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jul 06, 2016


Episode 146: The habit of doing things that failures don’t like to do!
 

Jake has recorded this episode in his new home! He’s been through stressfull packing and unpacking, but happy to be in his new home office!

He’s starting the episode with reminding us that we own our fate, our destiny. To this purpose, he is sharing some ideas he got from an inspiring little pamphlet writtten by Albert E.N. Gray called “The Common Denominator of Success” – link in the Mentioned in this episode section.

The author shares basic ideas, that are nevertheless powerful.

He argues that one common thing that sets successful apart and that causes them to be successful is the habit of doing things that failures do not like to do.

Jake mentions Michael Phelps, the most decorated olympian of all times. What sets him apart from other gifted athletes is the fact that he focuses on the WIN – what’s important now. This is translated into performing well, inspite of not feeling good or in the mood of giving one’s best!

Moreover, Albert E.N Gray also mentions that successful people also have a purpose, a passion, something greater than themselves to work one. If you do not know yet what your passion is, there are certain ways your could try and find it. You could pursue your spouse’s or your friend’s passion and see if you like it, too. Otherwise, you would think of what you liked doing when you were a kid and pick it up from where you left it.
Here’s what Jake said, in a nutshell:

Successful people are not always in the best mood and don’t always feel like doing certain things, but they nevertheless choose to do them!
The things easy to do are also easy not to do!
What is that single thing that you should be doing every single day, but for some reason you are not doing it? Is it eating healthy, exercising, practicing gratitude, expressing your love towards your significant other?
If you fail sometimes, that does not make you a straight failure.
Aim at winning the day!
Don’t only do things when you are in the mood of doing them!
Don’t allow emotions run your life!

145: Does Firewalking Give You The Burns?

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jun 29, 2016


Episode 145: Does fire-walking give you the burn?
 

Jake is recording episode 145 from an unusual place - his parents’ dinning room. His main computer is in his new house and his family is in the middle of a move, so no chance of using it!

In the middle of September, Jake will have a fire walk during his Self Reset Power Event! Its backed up by a 100% money back guarantee in case you do not feel you got any value from it!

Come and enjoy the fire walking experience! What happened at the recent Tony Robbins similar event is no indication of what will happen to you!
Here’s what Jake said, in a nutshell:
Your believes are stronger than facts!
People dwell on believes like: “Money is evil”, “Gluten is bad for you”, “TV is better than reading”. The good side about that is that your believes help you stay true to yourself! The bad side is that it does not allow us to open our eyes to the “what ifs”, to seeing things from others’ perspective.

But some believes we hold have been ruining our lives for years. This is true for believes like:

“I can not change, I was raised this way”
“It runs in my genes.”
“That’s part of our family culture!”

Yet, our believes are not set in stone, we can change them! This usually happens when we hit the lows in our lives and mostly through physical experiences!

And fire walking is one of those physical experiences that can shatter your key believes!

 
 When watched, people alter their behavior!
They act differently than they would if they were alone!

A lot of us are watched often and for long periods of time, that we eventually forget who we really are!

We need to look at believes we held in the past and challenge them! Because they still accompany us, even if we do not realize that!

What is it that you are not educating yourself on when you should!

What fears you had as a kid and you did not challenge, but you should have?

A lot of people do not have the internal strength to recover from past failures. When this happens to you, think about getting coaching and any short term energy and enthusiasm boosters!  You need that fuel every once in a while; nothing external will give you a permanent elevated state, you need to work on yourself, too!

 
The power of purpose!
A lot of us are doing things we enjoy, and live in nice houses and drive amazing cars! But we have nothing else! We need to find that bigger picture perspective, the overall general purpose that encompasses the whole of your life!

144: 3 Important Things You Must Know NOW

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jun 22, 2016


Episode 144: 3 important things you must know NOW
 

Episode 144 is a solo show that shares 3 important things you must know and do now!

Challenge your routines!

Routines are an excitement killer and this is especially true in relationships and in our careers. Analyze what you do on a daily basis that does not excite you! It might be your job. And then ask yourself what you could change in that routine that could make it more exciting.

It might be as simple as changing your approach to that routine, aka your attitude towards it and your focus! For instance, if you do not like your job, maybe you could change the routine you have on the way to your job. You could rock out on your favourite music and imagine you are at the concerct of your favorite band! And imagine rolling into work as you would into that concert!

You could make smaller changes like rotating the plates on the dinner table, or the furniture in the livingroom. This trick works great with rotating toys for small kids.

If you feel you can not do certain things, it’s not that you suck. Your routine sucks and you need to change it.

 

Realign!

No matter how unbelievable it sounds, each part of our body is connected to some other part and its functioning affects other functions. So it is in life, each area of our life affects at least another area of our lives. And the majority of people choose to compensate what is not working in a particular area of their life with inappropriate things like alcohol, drugs, watching garbage on TV.

Instead, they should try to tweak and crack that particular area of their life that is responsible for things not going well!

What can you do to realign things in your life?

 

Personal development requires self-sacrifice!

Sometimes, personal development sucks, but it is worth! By investing in yourself, you will help other people and yourself in the long run!

 
Here’s what’s been covered, in a nutshell:

Routines are an excitement killer.
If you can’t do a certain thing, your routine sucks, not you, so change it.
Each part of your body is connected with something else and each part of your life is connected at least another one.
Accentuate the positive!
You can choose to have a positive attitude!
Getting rich is not about obsessing over money!

143: 10 Tips To Sleep Towards Success

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!

Episode 143: 10 tips to sleep towards success
Episode 143 is a solo episode where Jake gives us awesome tips on how to get a better sleep. He startsoff with asking you where you could shade some time in your daily routine so that you can add extra 30 minutes of sleep. It could be less Facebook, less TV time, or anything else that you think it is a good fit for you.
Here’s what’s been covered, in a nutshell:

Follow in the footsteps of masters of a craft around the globe: they sleep 8 hours and 36 minutes on average.
Know how much sleep you actually get! The University of Chicago ran a study on a group of people that stated they sleep between 7 and 8 hours a night. But, using their technology, the University found out the group only slept for about 6 hours a night, on average.
Avoid these sleep thieves: cafeeine, tobacoo, alcohol, a large meal within 3 hours of your bed time, poor bedroom environment (too much ambient light, too cold, too warm, technology near the bed) and the worst of all, stress.
Go to bed and wake up at the same time, everyday!
Make up for lost sleep immediately!
Avoid screen time before bed. Use apps like f.lux and blublockers!
Cafeeine curfew. Try your best not to drink coffee after 2 p.m.
Stay cool. The optimal temperature of the body during sleep is 60-68 degrees.
Put your bear feet on the ground as often as you can! Use your basement, buy a grounding pad or even a grounding blanket!
Use night time rituals. Drink the same type of drink, brush your teeth at the same hour, whatever your routine is.

142: You’re A Hero So Live Like One

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jun 08, 2016


Episode 142: You’re a hero, so live like one
Episode 142 is a solo show that Jake starts by sharing an unexpected lesson he learn from his experience ealier in the day. He had spoken in front of a crowd of unemployed baby boomers looking for a job. They all looked happy and energetic; if you met them on the street, you would not know they are jobless. The unexpected lesson is to treat everyone as you would have them treat you: you never know what everyone is going through.
Here’s what’s been covered, in a nutshell:

When looking for a job, the tactics of how to look for a job are well known; the one thing you need to take care of is your mindset – it needs to be prepared to take you through the whole process of finding a job.
20% of our life is the mechanics; the remaining 80% is the mentality.
Events + our response = outcome. You can not change your events. But you can change your response, so that you can change your outcome.
We are all teachers, even if we do not call ourselves that. And we need to be aware of our response to our events!
You won’t always hit home runs, but keep doing your thing.
We are quick to call others “heroes”, but so slow in thinking about us as heroes.
Fight for something worth fighting for!
Make the call and stand for it – this is what true self leadership is.

140: Getting Things Done, Author David Allen

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, May 25, 2016


Episode 140: Getting things done, Author David Allen
In this episode, Jake shares the joy of his book being scheduled to be released in late October or early November – how’s that for a deadline? Oh, and did I mention that this episode was broadcast live on Facebook?

But now, let’s get to the serious part, where Jake depicts the main points in David Allen’s book Getting things done. His principles are brilliant and everybody can learn from them.

Principle #1: Capture everything .We all need a system for capturing things like shopping lists, to do lists, budgets. First off, you need to find your favorite way of capturing things: it may be pen and paper, or your phone or a voice recorder!. But you can’t choose your mind as your system for capturing things! Put it in a trusted system!

Principle #2: Find the next action.  We all know where we want to get, but sometimes it is less obvious what the next step is to get you there. So you need to make sure you dig deep and know what that next action is.

Principle #3: The two-minute game. Anything that takes less than two minutes needs to be done right away! If you don’t do those easy, quick things, they will pile up and eventually take you much more than they would have taken if you did them in the first place! Knock it out of the park right away.

Principle #4: Inbox zero! Go into your inbox and clear everything out. Scrape things through, put important emails into folders, get things organized. A bulky email slows your computer down a lot. Clearing a crowded inbox might take a lot of time, but once you have a system in place and stick with it for 60 days – the average time it takes to instill a new habit – you will be good to go!

Principle #5: Imagine wild success. Dream about the end goal and in the process figure out the steps to get there. Stop thinking on what you don’t have, and start thinking about what you DO have to reach that wild success!

If you want to make productivity hacks a part of your life, you need to be committed to doing them and, as the military say, embrace the suck! Also, a great way of instilling these things in your life is to help someone else through a similar situation. The more you give, the more you grow!

139: Five Tips From Jim Rohn

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, May 18, 2016


Episode 139: Five tips from Jim Rohn
 

In episode 139, Jake shares five tips he took from the personal development guru, Jim Rohn and also gives us three strategies people use when they learn from other people.

Jim Rohn had a fantastic rags-to-riches story that was a huge part of the message he spread out in the world as an author, entrepreneur and motivational speaker. He used many of the strategies shared by his mentor in his own message. Here are five mentor-moments that passed the test of time:

1.Let’s do this. The hardest thing to do is doing something by yourself.  But once you take a partner along with you in your journey, everything seems and becomes easier. It’s easy to cheat on yourself because it’s do hard to cheat on others ; that’s why it is so wise to have somebody you are accountable to as partner along the way.

2. The worst thing you can be is overcautious: sometimes it is very tough to live a life worth living if you are overcautious. Life is more than what you are currently doing and when you think big, when you ge the big picture perspective, you can be pulled out of that overcautious zone!

3. Work harder on yourself than on your job. Fit time in for yourself, time to listen to a podcast or an audio book, to read a book and really study it. If you work hard on your job, you will make a living, but if you work hard on yourself, you’ll make a fortune - a fortune which does not only refer to your financial life, but to the abundance in your life: better relationships, more fulfillment, happier days.

When it comes to your life, make sure you go with someone who goes through the same things as you are and embrace the suck: that’s what life is all about. We all go through happy moments and less happy moments, but the secret is to embrace all that happens to us and let it be easy!

4. Dream big! Recall your childhood memories and the things you dreamt to be when you grow up. And never feel too old to start something from scratch. In finding the next thing to focus on, Jake suggests using his road map that starts with writing down 101 goals: adventures, books to read or write, people to meet, things that scare you or obstacles you want to overcome! Once you do that, put a check mark next to the things that you really want to do. Then wait 2-3 days, and put another sign next to the ones you really want to do. After a few days, put other signs to the ones you really want to pursue! In the end, you will be left with the few goals you should focus on!

5. Never give up until…! We neeed to incorporate this word – until – more in our vocabulary. It can serve us well as a motivator, as something to look forward to.

 
Three ways to learn from other people

Learn from what you see. You need to pay attention all the time! Be present and pay attention to everything you do and see others doing.
Learn from what you hear. People have two ears and just one mouth for a good reason: to listen more than they talk. There are plenty of teachers all around us, and teachers are even those who are not paid to teach us. You can learn even from people who talk on the phone while commuting in the subway with you.
Read books written by valuable people! Instead of rubbing shoulders with the people you would want to meet, read their books: it’s easier, cheaper, less time consuming. There are billion of books out there for a reason.

 
Here’s what Jake said, in a nutshell:

Don’t try to do everything on your own, but get a companion on your journey.
Be bold and darring.
Work on yourself.
Remember your childhood dreams!
Never give up!
Put a timeframe on your goal
Learn from other people: through observing them, hearing them and reading their books

Why some people dont reach their goals

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, May 11, 2016


Episode 138: Why some people don’t reach their goals
Jake challenges us to imagine what emotions and feelings we will experience in the following week. Research shows people experience 12-18 emotions a week, and usually they are repeated each and every week. That’s why awesome sauce is so important: if you do it repeatedly, it will be part of your weekly emotional routine and help you smile and feel good about yourself!

When you set up a goal, there is something at the end that you want, something deeper behind actual achievement. If your goal is a new body, a new skill or a new attitude, there is more behind that goal: better pictures and memories, a new job and a new life!

Jake has the goal of putting their house for sale in a couple of days. In achieving that goal, he has made it public he would do so, cleaned the house, talked to a realtor. Basically, he set a few sticks hard in the ground to make sure he would achieve this goal. But settings sticks into the ground is not enough: you need to make sure that goal is within a time constraint. Also, having someone to walk the journey with you, will prove to be extremely helpful. It is not necessary for that person to be a coach or an expert into what you want to do, it is enough for that person to be there for you and hold your hand and encourage you along the way! If it is someone who goes through the same struggles as you, all the better.

When it comes to your life, make sure you go with someone who goes through the same things as you are and embrace the suck: that’s what life is all about. We all go through happy moments and less happy moments, but the secret is to embrace all that happens to us and let it be easy!
Here’s what Jake said, in a nutshell:

Put a timeframe on your goal
Make your goal public
Have accountability partners
Have someone with you to keep you on task

137: How should You live?

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, May 04, 2016


Episode 137: How should you live?
Jake started by thanking you, his listeners and readers, for sharing his content and bringing so much traffic to his website, which, unfortunately caused the OSR website to be down for a few days. Jake also appreciates the videos of your kids screaming: “I am freaking awesome” that you sent to him. Your children are designed to scream all sort of crazy things, but, really, the secret sauce is for you, the grown ups.

Jake has four questions for you to answer. Ideally, you should grab a pen and a piece of paper and write down the answers to these questions. Just go with you gut reaction. Here are the questions?

What do you like about your life today?
What do you not like about your life today?
If you would only have one year to live, what would you do and accomplish?
If you inherited one million dollars, what would you do?

Jake shares the story of the skillfull Mexican fisherman who always catches gigantic tuna fish. This guy is once hired by a wealthy banker who wants the fisherman to teach his family how to fish tuna. Impressed by the fisherman’s craft and productivity – this guy knew all the spots to catch the big fishes, the banker advises the fisherman to take his skill to a new level and create a business around his skill. He also offers to help the Mexican make millions of dollars through selling his tuna so that the Mexican can have more time to do the things he enjoys. But, it turns out that the fisherman was already doing the thing that he enjoyed the most: fishing. In that moment, both the banker and the fisherman where doing what they loved and not bashing one another for taking so different paths towards satisfaction!

Time to ask the four questions above, if you have not done so yet!

What is the best way to live? Deep down, we all know how to live, but we are slowed down by other people, by our emotions and conditioning.
Here’s what Jake said, in a nutshell:

Think of the four questions Jake mentioned above.
Be your best self, outside home, too.
Inject more of your personality into everything you do.

136: Law of Attraction 101

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Apr 27, 2016


Episode 136: Law of Attraction
Jake is a little pumped up in this episode as he is having a cold brew Starbucks coffee. This is so unusual as he does not drink coffee. He starts the episode with reviewing the one-star review his show just received in iTunes.

Law of Attraction is both a sexy and an irritating phrase in the same time. It’s sexy because it is so appealing to think about something and expect to get it, but it does not work for many because they do not do anything else besides thinking about the thing they want! For the law of attraction to work, you need to work toward your goals! When Jake was in his early twenties, he had set for himself the goal of earning 100.000 dollars. He did just what Jim Carrey had done: he wrote a check for that amount. But, unlike Jim Carrey, he did not earn that amount by the date he had set. But it was not a disheartening day. Jake learned his lesson: that he needed to take action towards his goal.

But now, at a different stage in life, he knows the secret success formula:

know what you want
just freaking start
reflect on what works and what does not
change the attack until you reach what you want.

Basically, the law of attraction requires you to think about what you want and constantly taking action towards achieving what you want! And many times, taking action means changing the attack.

But change is so difficult to achieve as we are so comfortable with the status-quo! Still, change can be achieved when there is pain! If you think of situations in your life that made you take major action, you will notice these were times when you were in pain. Alternatively, change can be achieved if you are after a bigger bliss. You need one of these motivating factors, pain or bliss, to get you out of your comfort zone. You need either pain or bliss to help you change the status-quo!

You need to figure out what that bliss is for you!

The steps for making the law of attraction work for you are

- you are comfortable, but you want to change

- to get you out of that comfort zone, find the bliss you aim to

- set up a vision board or a story reset. A story reset is a paragraph that defines what you currently want in your life. It is desinged in such a way that it pulls you out of bed every morning, and you need to read it every evening and every morning to remind you of where you want to be in the future.
Here’s what Jake said, in a nutshell:

The law of attraction, if used correctly – as a tool - can help you achieve anything you want in your own personal life. When in pain, you can use that pain to get you going towards what you want to achieve. If you are comfortable, chances are you are not motivated enough to change the status-quo. Instead of inflicting pain on you, the better alternative is to find a bliss to use as a motivation.
Once you find that bliss, set up a vision board that you see day in, day out.
Then, write your story reset: what does your ideal life look life, how will those around you benefit from you living your ideal life.
The meat and the potatoes is taking action.

135: Decisions Of Your Success

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Apr 20, 2016


Episode 135: Decisions of Your Success
Before he kicks this episode off, Jake is asking his audience what was the one decision they took in the beginning of the year that is completely reshaping the way their life looks like now, 4 months into the new year. Some may pinpoint to a decision, others may not have taken any decision. Actually, they have taken the decision to not make any decision.
Steps to success:

What the hell you want? In your day, in your emotions, in your personal finance, in your life?
Just freaking start. You don’t have to be great to start, you don’t need to know all you answers! There is no easy way, just lean into it!
Reflect on the pluses and on the minuses!
Change the attack until you complete what you want!

Here’s what Jake said, in a nutshell:

It is decisions that shape our legacy.
A legacy is like planting seeds you will never see blooming.
Be aware of your own decisions, do not let your subconscious take the decisions for you.
Lots of people know what to do, but few people do what they know.
The more decisions you make consciously, the stronger you get.
The simple things to do are easy not to do.

134: Visualization = HYPER ATTENTION

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Apr 13, 2016


 
Episode 134: Visualization = HYPER ATTENTION
In this solo episode – there have been more solo episodes recently, since you seem to like these the most – Jake shares a few ideas about a book he has been reading recently. He challenges you to read books and really study them. Reading is so much better than listening to podcasts or ebooks, because when you read a book, you focus on it and don’t do anything else. The book he is diving into today is Smarter, faster, better by Charles Duhigg . The author has had another best seller a few years back, called The Power of Habit.
“Anyone can learn to habitually construct mental models” – Charles Duhigg states that several researchers have reached this conclusion.If you focus on building stories about what is  going on around you, you will be able to have control over where your attention goes. Jake argues that visualization is just a tool of building stories about what could potentially happen around you and that visualizing can help you have laser-focused attention.
People use visualization to walk through all the steps they need to go through and involve all their senses in the process. The cool thing is that we can all visualize, as it does not require special skills or pills. You already have this inside you and you need to take advantage of it.
If you are about to go through a situation you are nervous about or scared of, visualize it. It is better to be over-prepared for it than under-prepared. Once you focus, your attention will go there.

Here’s what Jake said, in a nutshell:

Reading is so much better than listening to ebooks or podcasts.
Anyone has the inner resources to start visualizing.
If you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail.

133: Regain Motivation After Vacation

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Apr 06, 2016


 

 

 

 

 

 
Episode 133: Regain motivation after vacation
 

This episode is a solo talk where Jake is chatting about lessons learned during an all inclusive vacation in beautiful Mexico. He enjoyed the company of his extended family and a bunch of friends.

The first lesson shared by Jake is that we need to fully enjoy our vacation and make the most out of every dollar we paid for it. This time of the the year is the time you could make a few exceptions from your strict healthy eating habits. The only caveat here is to not go overboard.

The second lesson is to not get hurt in Mexico. His son got burned with his wife curling iron and he did not have any medical supplies with them. They took the kid to the EMT who did not speak English and only provided rudimentary and inappropriate care to him. Make sure you have some supplies with you in case you do get hurt.

The third lesson is to discover that speck of gold that lies within you. During the flight back home, Jake’s third-year old son started making a tantrum due to extreme tiredness; basically, he just wanted to be cuddled - , but his parents did not want to give in. Jake and his wife have their own parenting style that is personal to them and different from that of other people.  By sticking with their parenting style, in spite of other people rolling their eyes and his sister giving him the evil eye, they are allowing their kids to have their gold shine through; the are allowing them to work through it without the pressure of the external world.

Upon arriving home, in the middle of the night, the washer machine and the hot water heater were broken and water was filling the basement. Perfect scenario for a fresh work-life start after the vacation, right?

No, after coming back home, Jake still wanted to act like he did in the vacation, to eat like he did during his vacation. Basically, he lacked motivation.

Here is what Jake thinks he should have done pre-trip so that he would have a smooth transition from vacation to work:

lay down a to do list on a piece of paper on his table. When you don’t feel like doing anything, you just waste time on social media and anywhere else. But when you know what you need to do, you are ready to thick things off the list.
clean his office, which was a hot mess prior to the vacation.

If you do these two things next time when you go on vacation, it will help you to regain your motivation after your vacation.

Additionally, these things helped Jake regain his motivation:

food shopping (wheat grass, oatmeal, oils and the things he usually ingests) and restarting his morning routine
reading
reviewing his goals

Here’s what Jake said, in a nutshell:

Enjoy your vacation to the fullest
Be ready for the unexpected
Discover the speck of gold that lies within you
Strategies to regain your motivation after your vacations

128: Leave Your Legacy

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Mar 02, 2016


These podcasts around about deciding today to be better. It's not just entertainment. These podcasts are meant to help you go further than you've ever gone and be successful! They are meant to help you get to your highest levels so that you can leave a legacy!

Here is a great quote from Dr. Daniel Amen:
When you are 18 you feel like everyone is watching. When you are 30 say you don't care what everyone says about you and when you are 40 you realize no one is paying attention to you.

 
There are many interesting studies that have been done to the brain. It was found that the brain can actually be prepared. One thing that can help our brain is being at a good body weight. As we increase in size our brain actually decreases in size. So if we want to have a healthier and bigger brain then we need to be in better shape physically.

Did you know that the human attention span is 8 seconds?

What are you dong on a daily basis to leave your legacy? You can either use fear as an excuse to push you away from what you want or you can push through the pain. Virtual reality is coming and it is going to be a distraction so pay attention, do the right things and push through.
Here's What Jake Talked About In This Episode

Leaving a legacy
Being present in the moment
Keeping distractions at bay

127: Hidden Power of Personal Development

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Feb 24, 2016


Jake created Operation Self Reset after some temporary defeat in business and came to notice that he quit on himself and his invention so he could find what he was supposed to focus on. He continues to focus on and build his podcast and motivational/inspirational career.

Today is a new day to embrace opportunity and do something new! It is easy for us to get stuck in indecision and just sit in one spot waiting for something magical to come down and knock us in the head but that isn't going to happen. We have to stop wavering and get to work. We may not know where we are going but we have to get in the car and start driving!

Remember These Things

If we fail to plan then we plan to fail
No one is selfmade
We can be angry for 5 minutes and then get back to life

Jim Rohn quote: "The level of your success is the level of your personal development."
Here's What Jake Talked About In This Episode

Preparing and planning
Finding what you need to be doing in life
How we are not self made and need other people

126: As You Thinketh; Thoughts, Investment, Charge

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Feb 17, 2016


If you haven't read the book As a Man Thinketh by James Allen you definitely have to put it on your list. We often lose focus of where we came from and let negative thoughts come into our minds. We have to acknowledge the thought and then walk it out.

We have choices when it comes to our thoughts. We can choose to fall back on where we came from or we can move forward to where we are going. What we did or had in the past does not determine what we will do or have in the future.

Don't let your education get in the way of your self education - Jim Rohn
Must Dos
#1. Get your sleep schedule in order

#2. Turn the lights off in your room

#3. Don't go to bed right after tv or computer time

Always remember what we do today has a bigger effect on us than we even know right now. We have to re-energize just like a phone and that means getting sleep!
Here's What Jake Talked About In This Episode

Choosing our thoughts wisely
Getting plenty of sleep
Having a vision for the future

125: Disruptt With Matt Sacks

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Feb 10, 2016


Today Jake is talking with Matt Sacks from Disruptt.

Matt is from Toronto, but grew up in B.C. where he played a lot of sports. He achieved great things in sports and made it in the college sports arena but something was missing. From there he went into marketing and advertising and still he knew that was not where he belonged.

Before long he started doing leadership and workshops. He knew that he wanted to be able to shift the norm and talk about the issues that are normally swept under the rug. The ability to give new perspective is was he was looking for. The ability to increase awareness and make money while doing that.

Jake asked Matt to share his thoughts on how to share your passion and Matt said the only thing he could say was to try different things and see how it feels and not give up too easily! He also asked him how he would advise people to get out of their comfort zone. Matt shared that he believed you have to spend time around people that lift you up and push you to go forward and a self reset to Matt is growing and morphing into who you are becoming every day.
Here's What Jake Talked About In This Episode

Having a bigger vision.
Bringing yourself to the next level.

124: Your Venture Companion, Justin Bentley-Melle

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Feb 03, 2016


Today Jake is talking with Justin Bentley-Melle who is the author of Venture Companion a 52 step book to help people become more successful with journaling.

Journaling has a powerhouse of ideas to enhance your life. When you read along with Venture Companion you will see it is much more like a workbook. You'll learn to notice what is going on around you, what your personality traits are, what is driving you, where your engagement is and more.

Justin does journaling nightly to process his day and keeps it up consistently because of the strong benefit. When you are creative and growing as a personal it shakes up the world around you. People get uncomfortable with you and this creates self doubt. He believes everyone is an artist and a hero in some way and you have to realize that even when it gets uncomfortable. People lean toward structure because they want to have a guarantee. It took Justin 3 years to write Venture Companion.
Here's What Jake Talked About In This Episode

Journaling
Being grateful
Being consistent
Getting better every day

123: Passion, Purpose, Power

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jan 27, 2016


In today's episode Jake talks about your passion, purpose and power as well as sharing life stories from the heart.
2 Big Questions

What do I provide for you?
Who am I serving?

When I am putting out this content, I want to know what I am bringing to people, who I am serving and how I can continue to help people and pour back into them.
Passion
People are always looking for their passion and there simply is NOT a test that you can take and find that out. You have to find it out on your own. There is a uniqueness to all of us and what makes one passionate does not make another person passionate.  This is why it is a must to be authentic. Authentic means that we are being the author of our lives. If you were truly being the author of your life, what would that book be about?

You may be striving for something and trying to get somewhere and thinking that you'll be happy once you get there but the truth is that happy people have projects. They are always working toward something. Will power is your engine.

120: All about you!

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jan 20, 2016


Today Jake is talking about your favorite topic! - YOU!

If you are thinking you are going to be happy once you achieve something. Once you reach a certain goal. Once you are at a certain weight. Once you each enough money. Whatever it might be, you have a big surprise coming because the truth is that oftentimes when we achieve our goals we become depressed! You heard me right! We get depressed!!! WHY?? Because we have nothing to push for. As humans we always have the desire to grow and if we are not growing them we are shrinking.

Jake tells the story about his venue search for his seminar in June 25th and 26th as well as an update about the SelfResetMastery.com group and next year's registration. Go to SelfResetMastery.com to get in line for next year's group.
Do Something Different
If we are continuing to do something the same way over and over and are hoping for a different result - do you think that we are going to be getting a different result? NO. 1 + 1 always = 2. What are some things you can do differently or make different?

Let's look at style. You have to find your new style. How do you do things? What should people expect from you? Don't freak out. You do not have to come up with your own style. You can actually copy people. Imagine that!! So many people do not do things because they are afraid they are going to be too much like someone else. There is nothing new under the sun.

If you start doing something different and do not change, don't start to get discouraged! Remember that things happen over time. It is drip by drip! It doesn't about turning on a water hose full force! You have to work on things slowly but surely. It is the compound effect!

Many times personal coaching clients expect magic to be worked. They expect a game plan to be given to them but that is not how it works. The coach can take you through the process but they cannot do the process for you. You must find the path and then walk the path through. Do not get into decision paralysis. The more choices that you have to make the less happy you are!

You can choose to be the victim or the creator. What is your choice? Create the life that you want!
Here's What Jake Talked About In This Episode

Victim or creator?
Don't wait to be happy!
Do something different!

119: From Founder To CEO, Todd Uterstaedt

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jan 13, 2016


Today Jake is interviewing Todd Uterstaedt from the podcast Founder to CEO. Before getting into the interview Jake shares a personal story about his family trip to Chicago.

Update: June 25th and 26th seminar is moving forward in Milwakee

Todd is from New England but living in Cincinnati, Ohio. He recounts his story about how he had gotten into the military and was stationed in Fort Gordon. Later he found a job closer to his liking being able to help other people and finally him and a friend of his started their own executive coaching business.
Executive Coaching Business
Whenever Todd started the business he thought he was going to need a lot less money and a lot less time to be able to get the clients that he wanted. He remembers spending a nice chunk of money on an advertisement that brought in zero sales.

One of the biggest challenges clients come to him over is the feeling of loneliness. Many leaders think that they have to keep on a strong face and can't show any weakness. The truth is that people are looking for leaders that are authentic.
Becoming a Better Leader
If you are looking to become a better leader, the first thing you need to do is bring out the leader that is already inside of you. This is much more important than listening to people that are supposed experts in leadership. One of the ways that you can find out more about yourself and more about the leader inside of you is by using the Birkman method. This can be found online and in the book written by Roger Birkman - True Colors

We must believe in the ability of others and we must understand that we learn and grow day by day.
The Difference Between Founders and CEOs
Founders are there to cast vision (and of course do fundraising!). CEOs are building people who can bring the product or service to the market.

It is important that we extend trust to other people and take things off our brain space.

People that can really build companies understand that they need to have an important mission that more people will come to you and support.
What a Self Reset Is to Todd
A self reset to Todd is getting comfortable with the next wave of change.
Here's What Jake Talked About In This Episode

Finding the leader within you.
Growing a new company.
The difference between founders and ceos.

118: Joshua Rivedal I’Mpossible Project

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jan 06, 2016


Today Jake is interviewing Josh Rivedal from the I'Mpossible Project which was inspired by Josh's own need for help in the area of suicide prevention. He shares his powerful story about cutting off the cycle after both his father and grandfather took their own lives.

Before getting started, you know what we have to do! Come on. Even the ones that are reading this right now, get up off of your seat, put your hands in the air and scream..."I'M FREAAKKKINNNNGGG AWEEESOMMMEE!!" Yeah! Don't you feel awesome now? Admit it!

UPDATES:

Self Reset Mastery is going amazing! Super excited about the group and IF you want to get into next year's group, go to SelfResetMastery.com NOW.

Seminar dates: June 25th and 26th! Super excited about this!

---

If you want to achieve your goals, you must challenge yourself and that is exactly what Joshua Rivedal has done with his amazing project.

Before getting started with this project Joshua had went to a very dark place. It seemed like everything in his life was going against him. Bad relationship with his mom, love of his life left him, just everything was looking DOWN! At this time he came so close to also taking his own life and keeping that cycle going but something stopped him from doing it

Now you can find Joshua on "Kicking My Blue Genes in the Butt" which was previously known as "The Gospel According to Josh".
What Helped Joshua Get Through His Hard Time?
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, The Trevor Project and Eat, Pray, Love.

Besides for those things Joshua says that creativity was a great help to him during this time. He also looked at other people's lives, what they overcame and turned around to be a service to others that were hurting.

Since one out of two people deal with depression, there are many people that can be helped and even if you yourself are depressed, you can help yourself by helping someone else and this is what Joshua is doing through the I'Mpossible Project. You can also find him performing "I'm Just a Straight White Guy Singing About Diversity".
3 Steps to Get Out of The Bad Place
#1 - Acknowledge that you are human. We all make mistakes, we all go through hard times. That is ok. Be ok with that.

#2 - Connect with positive people. You are never going to elevate yourself by hanging with basement diggers. You need to find people that want to go up higher.

#3- Persistence. It is not going to happen overnight. If you fall down... don't feel bad! Get back up again! Find space for the little wins and celebrate them!
Here's What Jake Talked About In This Episode

Helping others
Getting creative
Being persistent
Challenging yourself

117: Self Reset Mastery

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Dec 23, 2015


Today Jake is talking about the amazing new limited time program to kick start 2016 and make it the best year yet!

January 1st, 2016 Self Reset Mastery will begin and the elite of the elite will be in this program to shift their new year into "freaking awesome!!" mode.

People have different ways to change their state, but if you haven't done it already stand up wherever you are, put your hands over your head and scream (or pretend to scream if you have kids in the house) I'M FREEEEAKKKINNNNG AWEEESOMMMMEE!!! Now, don't you feel freaking awesome???

Now, let's get into the meat of things.

Most people see January approaching and they do a few things that almost guarantee their failure.
#1 - They set too many goals
Having multiple goals is okay, as a matter of fact, I have THREE big goals that I will accomplish in 2016! What does NOT work is having too many goals, not being clear and not taking action.

So you want to... GET CLEAR ON YOUR GOALS.
#2 - They are not accountable to anyone
Even the highest achievers need someone to keep them accountable. Sometimes I don't feel like getting on and putting out content, but guess what?? You guys keep me accountable and I love you for that!
#3 - They do not know the right tricks and tips
It is NECESSARY to have the right tricks and tips if you want to achieve success in this lifetime and I have something that will help you in 2016.

INTRODUCING... SelfMasteryReset.com This is a freaking awesome program that is bringing massive value. Like, for real! I am going to be putting so much of myself into this program that I almost feel crazy for doing this. Why am I doing it anyway?? Because I love you guys. I talk to you guys on text, on the phone, etc. all of the time. I know you are going to love this!! It WILL be a paid program because I know you need to invest in yourself to really take it serious and get the value.

This program will be in Jan, Feb and March. Think of it as a LAUNCH PAD to help you get to your goals. I am going to use it for the same thing. What are my goals for 2016?

Host a 2 Day Seminar the End of June (I'll see you there, right???)
Write and Publish a Book (Yes, I did co-author a book with Les Brown but this one is going to be MINE)
Expand My Reach

What are your goals? Why do you have them? What is the outcome you expect to get once you achieve these goals?

So, what are the details about SELFRESETMASTERY.COM's program??

30 people limit and it is ONLY going for 3 months. 45-60 minute webinar once per month. You'll learn how to live a level 10 life and I will be giving you TWENTY! Yes, TWENTY!! success tips in this 45-60 minute webinar.

You'll also get a 1/2 hour Q & A webinar. It will be aired to the whole group and also recorded.

There will be a Mastery group in Facebook. It will be 100% secret so only the members will be able to see the content. You can post idea, goals, videos, whatever you believe will help the other group members. REMEMBER: The more that you give, the more you grow!

I will be pairing 3-4 of the members up into accountability pods. There will be a skype or phone call for these 3-4 to get together. No one person changed the world so meeting 2 times per month will be important. It's only for 3 months guys, that's only 6 times! If you can't take out that much time to work on your dreams and goals then this isn't the right program for you. Sorry. It's just not.

BONUS: You will get a motivational Monday video from me every Monday!! You'll also get 1 private 1 on 1 coaching and other bonuses valued at $394 and it gets even better. Since this is the beta group (yeah you're my test crew!) you get 50% off. All the same value but at half the price!

How do you get interviewed and approved? Go to SelfResetMastery.com Dec 30th 8pm cst / 9pm est and listen to the details.

113: Firewalking Fireman

Wed, Nov 25, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 113: Firewalking Fireman
Today Jake is talking about his experience fire walking.

Recently, Jake was in the mountains of California, in a little town called Twain Heart. It's about three and a half hours outside of San Francisco. There lives a man named Tolly Burkin. Tolly brought fire walking to the mainstream public back in the 1970s.

Back then, fire walking was considered to be something only crazy people did. It had been around for thousands of years and was performed by different tribes in the Caribbean. It was mostly used to determine the guilt of suspected criminals within those tribes. If they didn't burn their feet when they walked across the fire, it was believed that the gods protected the people because they were innocent.

As a young man, Tolly enjoyed magic tricks and had turned it into a mini-career. He went to a magician's conference one year and met a magician who performed on magic. Tolly thought that there must be some kind of magic involved in walking on the fire without getting severely burned. He studied fire walking, trying to determine what that magic was. But later, when Tolly's girlfriend walked across hot coals during a camp out with friends, he realized that there was no magic, just belief in the moment.

We often think things are more complex than they actually are. We have things that hold us back because we think they're challenging, but in actuality they're really easy.

Before he had attempted it, Jake didn't think fire walking was all that challenging or life changing. He is a fire fighter and so he's around fire all the time. But the first time he walked across hot coals, he found his perspective changing. He realized he didn't have his protective equipment and he was risk serious injury. As he got closer to the fire, Jake felt the challenge pulling at him.

Listen in as Jake describes his experience in fire walking and how you can use the things he learned to face the own challenges in your life.

Operation Self Reset Episode 111: David Vox 30 Days of Silence
Today Jake is talking again with David Vox of Goaly.com.

Jake first talked with David in episode #93 and his story and how Goaly.com began. Now David is back to continue his discussion about his life and his goals.

After working hard for three years, David found himself so exhausted that he needed a chance to get away and relax. He decided to go to a monastery for one month to recharge and figure out where to go from there. David thought he’d find an enlightened teacher who could help him really relax and find clarified truth in his life. Instead, David found a racist, homophobic person who had something bad to say about almost every group of people in the world. So David turned inward, searching for clarity on his own.

To his surprise, David found that clarity he had been looking for. His mind was at complete peace and he was happy and content with his life. He thought it would disappear soon, but that feeling remained and David began to examine it to figure out what it was and where it had come from. David found that when he tried to define himself by what other people wanted him to be he became limited. But when he pushed beyond that he was limitless and could become anything. “Freedom is literally a door that disappears the minute you start searching for it,” David tells us. Only when you let go of all the thoughts in your mind, do you enjoy the moment and find that freedom you’ve been looking for.

Listen in as David continues his story and talks about going beyond limits to the ultimate goal.
Here’s what Jake and David talked about in this episode:

Embracing limitless possibilities
How to separate yourself from the consuming thoughts
The ultimate goal
Story versus goals

110: The Attitude Compass

Operation Self Reset Episode 110: The Attitude Compass
This week Jake is discussing attitude.

Your attitude, like everything else in life, is a choice. Your self reset is a choice. You can choose to reset or not. So you can choose to change your attitude and then your life. We find so many other things to blame our attitudes on. We blame it on the economy, our parents, the weather, the world in general. But we need to take responsibility for our own attitudes and stop finding other things to blame it on. You can choose to change your attitude and make the outcome of your day different than it would have been if you’d kept that bad attitude.

Your body language can say a lot about your attitude. You can portray a different attitude by changing the way you hold your body. Amy Cuddy presented a study on body language in a TED Talk with some people standing in a position of power for five minutes before walking into another room while others stood in a more relaxed state. Behind the scenes, a group of people who couldn’t hear the audio watched the people and took notes of their stances. The people watching were asked if they would hire each person they watched and it turned out that they would hire the 10 people who stood in a high position of power while the other 10 weren’t scored as high. Your body language can change your attitude and make you feel as confident and happy as the body language you reflect.

You have the power to take responsibility for the face you show the world. Take control, reset your attitude, and from there reset your life. So listen in as Jake talks about how to do just that.
Here’s what Jake talked about in this episode:

Choose to reset your attitude
Take responsibility
Events + attitude = outcome
Using body language to change your attitude

108: The Soulmate Lover With Mali and Joe

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Oct 28, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 108: Soulmate Lover with Mali and Joe
In this episode, Jake is talking with relationship experts Mali and Joe about rekindling the romance.

Mali and Joe have been together for about four years and have a relationship that they describe as magical. Mali has been a book editor for years and she decided that they should write a book about why their relationship has worked so well to help others reach that same place in their own romances.

So what is it that makes Mali and Joe’s relationship so great? They realized that even after a few years together, they’d never had an argument—not even a harsh word between them. They had both been through bumpy relationships in the past that just didn’t click. When she was ready to date again, Mali couldn’t use typical dating sites because they require you to define what it is you’re looking for in a mate and she was open to anything the universe wanted to give her. So she turned to Craigslist instead. Joe also was open to any type of relationship and had posted an ad on Craigslist in search of a relationship. It was this ad that Mali came across in her search and the openness in his ad drew her in.

So many people that reach out to Jake are trying to change themselves, but are in a relationship with someone who is kind of a dud. As Mali reminds us, we can’t force someone else to change. The only way to change someone else is to change yourself. The changes you make in yourself will spread to that other person. It may not happen right away, but hold true to the person you want to be and the relationship you want to have and you can make that connection. When you change your mindset, you make yourself happier and then make your relationship more magical.

Listen in as Mali and Joe talk about how to work your way toward that magic.
Here’s what Jake, Mali, and Joe talked about in this episode:

Look for someone ready to explore
When we change, the relationship changes
Making shifts to find the answers
Connecting through your passions
Transforming jealousy
Healing after divorce

107: Rise Up With Tom Crawshaw

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Oct 21, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 107: Rise Up With Tom Crawshaw
This week Jake is speaking with the founder of the Rise Up Academy, Tom Crawshaw.

Tom grew up as most people do, with his parents teaching him that it was important to get good grades. So he studied hard, got good grades in school, and went off to university...and then dropped out after three months. His studies in aviation engineering just weren’t keeping his interest, but Tom wasn’t sure where he should go from there. The only thing he could think of was going to a different university. So he enrolled in one closer to home and this time studied meteorology. Again, it wasn’t keeping his interest, but Tom didn’t know what else to do. During that time, Tom was walking home drunk one night when he was approached by three guys. He tried to run, but tripped and the guys caught him. They stabbed him in the stomach, cutting a major artery, and demanded his things. Tom was left bleeding to death on the road, barely conscious and not knowing exactly where he was.

Tom spent the next few months in recovery, learning to walk again, and realizing just how close he had come to death. This experience made Tom realize that he didn’t want to go back to university and to classes he had no interest in. He wanted to really explore himself and his life to figure out where he belonged and what really made him happy. From there, Tom found his way to creating his service, PT Mastermind, which helps fitness experts focus and boost their marketing and outreach.

Since then, Tom has also created the Rise Up Academy, where he uses his own experiences to help and teach others. The fear that you have when you jump out of an airplane is the same neurological response you get when you speak to a stranger for the first time. Learning to handle that fear through adventure can help in your day to day life and let you experience more opportunities.

Tom reminds us that our perception of the world is based on experiences that have created a story we’re living out. Listen in as he talks about how to change that story and write a new one for yourself.
Here’s what Jake and Tom talked about in this episode:

Controlling fear
Things that stop people from pushing themselves
How your mindset impacts your day
That “magic pill”
Journaling the positive and negative
The 4 A’s – How to set up your life

105: Lead Your Ship, Leadership 101

Wed, Oct 07, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 105: Lead Your Ship, Leadership 101
In this episode, Jake is talking about leadership.

Leadership is a long journey of not only discovering yourself as a leader, but helping others better themselves. How do you do that? First things first, you need to take responsibility for yourself, your life, and where you are. The biggest problem Jake has seen in helping people work toward becoming great leaders is that they aren’t willing to take responsibility for where they are in life. It’s easy to find other things to blame: the economy, the weather, the way we were raised, other people. But you can’t move ahead in life until you take 100% responsibility for where you are right now.

What does it mean to take responsibility? Figure out why something you tried in life didn’t work, why you failed. Don’t look for blame on other people or events, focus on yourself. Look within. Ask yourself, “Why is it I did not fulfill that promise?” Jake used to blame his job and his erratic schedule as the reason he had trouble getting things done. But when someone else told him he needed to stop using his job as his scapegoat, it changed his whole mindset.

Listen in as Jake talks about how you can turn yourself into a great leader and help others along the way.
Here’s what Jake and Rosie talked about in this episode:

Taking responsibility for your actions
Focusing on the why
Journal the issues
5 levels of leadership

104: The Self Help Rockstar

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Sep 30, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 104: The Self Help Rockstar
Today Jake is talking with Barry of the podcast, The Self Help Rockstar.

Barry’s podcast was originally titled No Easy Answers, but he started having issues really communicating what the show was all about. The show was centered on a question, each episode had a question as a title and he and the guests focused on that question during the show. But about 78 episodes in, it became difficult to keep thinking of new questions to use for each episode. Barry decided to combine his experience in music and self help into one show and therefore changed the name of the podcast to The Self Help Rockstar.

Barry got into the world of self help because he needed it in his own life. In 2011, he was sitting alone in a parking garage in Boston. He had filed for divorce and bankruptcy, was battling depression, had been sober for a year and a half but had the urge to drink again, and was suicidal. He sat with a razor blade in one hand, ready to end his life. He called a good friend who had been through a similar experience. The friend was able to talk him away from that edge and Barry made it through the night. He decided he had to do something to change his life. He began to devour self help books, podcasts, and videos by all the big names. Slowly, from that point, Barry began to turn his life around.

Now he uses those experiences to reach out to others and help them change their lives and mindset. Listen in as Barry chats with us today about hope, overcoming fears, and how to start turning your life around even in the darkest moments.
Here’s what Jake and Tom talked about in this episode:

Integrating the light and dark
Become friends with your fear
You versus you
Ask and receive
Taylor Swift Syndrome

103: Dream Big With Jim Palmer

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Sep 23, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 103: Dream Big With Coach Jim Palmer
This week Jake is speaking with Coach Jim Palmer about how to succeed in many areas of your life.

Jim is a marketing and business building expert and founder and CEO of multiple businesses. But in this episode, Jim is discussing life, fears, and how to excel your own personal reset. In 2000, Jim was the sole breadwinner in his family. He went through a financial and personal crisis then when he lost his job and was diagnosed with cancer.

Before going through all of that, Jim used to focus a lot on getting and owning things. Facing his own mortality made him realize that the material things didn’t really mean anything. Working toward owning things is no longer important and isn’t what drives Jim in his career. Now he focuses on bigger things. Having something to work toward, whether it’s family or charity or something else, gives you a reason to get up in the morning and move forward. Jim and his wife support three local charities and he uses this to push him ahead in his work.

Jim now teaches others how to use their drive to move themselves forward in life. Most success gurus tell you it’s your drive, ambition, strength, skill, talent, etc. that drives you forward, but Jim believes it’s more than that. Your skill, talent, strength, work ethic, drive, and etc. all make up the machine of your business. But your mindset is the fuel that drives your machine. You could be great at what you do, but if you don’t have the mindset to push yourself forward and work toward that success, you’ll never get there.

Listen in as Jake and Jim talk about the secrets to finding success in your career, life, and everything else and why you might need a coach in your life.
Here’s what Jake and Jim talked about in this episode:

The fuel of your machine
Fear of criticism
How to get yourself into the right daily mindset
The benefits of having a coach
How to find the right people to push you forward

102: Spin Kick Your Limitations With Coach Rodney King

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Sep 16, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 102: Spin Kick Your Limitations With Coach Rodney King
This week Jake is speaking with martial arts coach Rodney King about kicking limits out of your life.

Rodney grew up in an area of Johannesburg, South Africa, called the South Side, which is government housing similar to what is known as “the projects” in the United States. He grew up with violence around him constantly, so he had a lot of anxiety. When he got older, he got into martial arts, which helped him move past his anxieties and limitations.

Rodney now uses his own experiences in life and his knowledge of martial arts to help others work through their own limits. As Rodney tells us, control is an illusion. We can never have complete control of our lives or of every situation. but we can learn to deal with the imperfection and work in the moment as we move forward. We lose contact with the present moment by either holding onto the past or projecting into the future rather than concentrating on where we are now. Learn to accept where you are in your life in this moment without judgment about things that have already happened. It's already happened and you can't change it. You can only change what you do from this moment on.

Listen in as Rodney and Jake talk about what holds us back and how we can push ourselves toward taking risks. Discover the secret to task irrelevant cues and task relevant cues, and how they can help you in moving past your own limits.
Here’s what Jake and Rodney talked about in this episode:

Control is an illusion
Mindful of the moment
Fear of taking risks
Task irrelevant cues and task relevant cues

101: Find Your Zen With Thai From TheUtopianLife.com

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Sep 09, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 101: Find Your Zen with Thai From The Utopian Life
This week Jake is speaking with Thai from The Utopian Life.

Thai was born to Vietnamese parents who fled Vietnam after the war when he was six months old. After spending a week on a rickety boat, his family lived in a refugee camp for about a year until they were accepted into Australia. Being a Vietnamese kid in a Westernized culture led to a lot of identity issues for Thai as he struggled to find out who he was and where he fit into the world. He got into a lot of troubles by hanging out with the wrong crowds. When he was older, Thai went to Canada for a while before returning to Australia. He got into kickboxing and ended up in Thailand, before finding his way to the United States.

Thai now spends his life trying to uplift people and encouraging them to break out of the zone they’re used to in order to find their way to happiness and their full potential. It’s so easy to become stuck on one path in our lives. We can let fear of the unknown control our actions rather than expand and go for new challenges and our dreams.

Listen in as Thai talks about changing your actions and tips for breaking out of your habits. Get yourself on your path to finding your zen.
Here’s what Jake and Thai talked about in this episode:

Breaking out of your comfort zone and taking risks
Taking that first step
Being a good friend
The cue, the routine, and the reward of habits

Wed, Sep 02, 2015


 Operation Self Reset Episode 100: Living an Outstanding Life
This week Jake is celebrating episode 100 and talking about living an outstanding life.

Jake decided to start a podcast on living a better life because he always very positive and wanted to help spread that clear mindset to others. As he grew up, he listened to talks by Zig Ziglar and Jim Rohn during rides to hockey practice with his dad. He was an average athlete in school, but he was still very positive and didn’t let himself get too overwhelmed by the pressures of sports or school.

Jake had a good life with a good job, a happy marriage, and a home. But still, he woke up one morning on his birthday thinking that something wasn’t quite right. He always felt like he had a knack for connecting with people deep down. He never thought he’d become a motivational speaker, but eventually he found that was where he was headed in his life. He realized he wanted to help people reset their lives and find their own path to happiness.

The 100 episodes Jake has done in this journey have taught him a lot and have touched him deeply in different ways. Listen in as Jake discusses some of things he’s learned and how to live an outstanding life as your reset your own self. If you have any questions or comments or want to talk about what you’ve learned over the last 100 episodes, send Jake a message at 414-550-4012.

Investing in your relationships
Setting standards in your life

OSR 99: Joy of Pain, Author Richard H. Smith

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Aug 26, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 99: The Joy of Pain with Richard Smith
This week Jake is talking with Richard Smith, professor of psychology and author of The Joy of Pain.

How do people come to who they are and their sense of themselves? Richard Smith tells us that one of those ways is through social comparisons. How good we are at things is a comparison of ourselves against other people, but this can cause problems when we focus too much on how we measure up to others. We can often develop envy due to comparing ourselves to others, and this envy can become a major problem in our lives if we focus too much on it.

We often don’t admit it, but we as people do take pleasure in someone else’s pain at times. We like to see our enemies fail or that celebrity we envy have a run of bad press. Joy in someone else’s pain is known as schadenfreude and it lives within our society, even if we don’t acknowledge it.

Listen in as Richard talks more about schadenfreude and how it can make us feel better about ourselves or lead to problems within our own lives.
Here’s what Jake and Richard talked about in this episode:

Why it matters how we compare to others
Envy as evidence that the world matters to you
Evaluating happiness

OSR 98: Regenerate Your Story

Operation Self Reset Episode 98: Regenerate Your Story
This week Jake is talking about creating a new story in your life.

Our brains learn because of a tissue called myelin, which wraps around the nerve fibers that fire when we learn or experience something in our lives. This is what tells us what things we enjoy and what things we don’t like. The process of generating myelin happens repeatedly whenever we experience something and it becomes a part of the habits in our lives.

Myelin comes into play in our fears also. When we tell ourselves that we can’t do something—speak in front of people, go into high places, not go after that dream job—myelin, or The Doubt Man as Jake calls it, wraps around those neurons in our brains. It happens again and again, until we absolutely believe that we can’t ever do those things.

We can’t erase myelin, the only thing we can do is replace it with a new story. Listen in as Jake talks about how to replace your story and the myelin in your brain with a new story and a new you.
Here’s what Jake talked about in this episode:

How we learn
Creating a new story
The phases of learning
Build the Ultimate You

OSR 96: You Have Questions I have Answers

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Aug 12, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 96: You Have Questions I Have Answers
This week Jake is answering your questions.

Life is hard. One of the most important things we need to learn in life is that we can get through it better if we don’t try to do it on our own. Jake learned the importance of teamwork through his work at the fire department, and he hopes to spread this message to all of you as well. All of us are a team and we need to help each other.

With that in mind, Jake is answering three questions from readers on the podcast today. We can use each other to get through the hard times in our lives and work our way toward change. So what is that first step to change? Find someone else who has been through that change and find what they’ve done to get there. Use that to encourage and help yourself on your own journey. You can reach your goals if you connect with the people around you by getting to know them. We are all salespeople—every day we sell our personalities, our productivity, our ideas. But don’t always focus on selling you, focus on learning more about the people you come in contact with. Take the focus off yourself or whatever you’re selling for a moment and you can build better connections through repoire.

Do you have questions? Jake is happy to answer them in upcoming podcasts, so text him at 414-550-4012 or email him at jake@operationselfreset.com.
Here’s what Jake talked about in this episode:

The first step to change
Goals and vision boards
Build repoire and get to know your connections

Operation Self Reset Episode 94: Getting Into Peak State
This week Jake is doing a solo episode. The 100th episode is coming up soon and Jake wants to say thank you to all of you who have supported the podcast by emailing, commenting, or just listening.

As you may know or have guessed, Jake’s biggest dream is to become the next Tony Robbins. He attended one of Tony Robbins’s seminars recently and learned a lot from the experience. So today Jake wants to share some of the things he learned from Tony’s seminar and how it changed him. Walking through fire is an unforgettable experience and it awakened new thoughts in Jake’s head about himself and his life.

We all have these moments when we just don’t feel like doing something. We wake up and don’t feel like going to work. We don’t feel like exercising. We don’t feel like getting our finances in order. But we can’t go off those feelings and let them run our lives. Learn to push past that feeling and embrace life, the highs and the lows. Get into that momentum of making your life the best it can be. Don’t be afraid to walk across the fire and change your state of mind or your life.

Again, thanks for listening as Jake moves closer toward that 100th episode.
Here’s what Jake talked about in this episode:

You can’t go off a feeling
Getting feedback on your life and how you can do better
Putting “currency” into someone’s “bank account”
Firewalking into a new state

Mentioned in this episode:

Tony Robbins
Jack Canfield

OSR 93: Healing For Heros With David Vox Goaly.com

Wed, Jul 22, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 93: Goats and Goals With David Vox
In this episode, Jake is talking with David Vox, founder of Goaly.com, a website made of the top coaches around the world to help you enhance your life.

David grew up in a small village in Norway, with an alcoholic mother who dated a violent man. When he was very young, David was put into foster care, which wasn’t much better than the life he had come from. The family treated him terribly and he had no friends except goats. Even after being taken from that family, he still lived with a lot of fear and anxiety. He eventually moved to a family that was kind to him, but David was still so traumatized by everything that had happened to him before that he acted like a goat by head butting things whenever he got angry.

David could have spent his life blaming his childhood for ruining his life and leading him nowhere as an adult. But instead, David didn’t want to spend his life as a victim and going nowhere. In every place where he could act as a victim and focus on his pain, he realized that there were people in the world who had it worse than he did. He was angry about his childhood and that one family made him drink from the toilet—but then he thought about the people in the world who would love to have any water to drink. Thinking about life this way made David move past his own anger and pain to become appreciative and happy about the life he had.

Growing up, David had to have a psychologist twice in his life. As an adult, he realized how helpful it could be to have a coach to help with personal development and goals. Thinking back about his childhood and how his caring foster family helped him to prepare for changes by easing him into them, he realized that was what people needed: someone to help ease them into changes or encourage them to follow certain paths. David decided to try to offer that through his site Goaly.com by getting coaches to offer their advice and encouragement to viewers.

Listen in as David speaks about what led him to wanting to connect people with coaches that haven’t just read books, but have lived these same situations and have advice on how to move forward. David’s story and Goaly.com could lead you to the transformation you need in your own life.
Here’s what Jake and David talked about in this episode:

Life is all about perspective
Sharing our best coaching strategies with each other
“Strategies for doing”
Putting your trust into everything around you

OSR 92: Asking The Right Questions With Gene McNaughton

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jul 15, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 92: Asking the Right Questions with Gene McNaughton
In this episode, Jake is talking with Gene McNaughton. Gene used to work with Tony Robbins before branching off into his own business of helping people be the best salespeople they can be.

Gene spent his childhood growing up in a small town in Iowa surrounded by farm country. He always dreamed of becoming a professional athlete one day, but as he grew up, he realized that the reason he wanted to be a sports star was because he liked to influence people. Gene then turned that desire to influence people into a sales career and now he uses his experience and knowledge to help others in their sales careers.

The advice Gene gives works not only for sales careers, but also in our own every day lives. We are asking questions of ourselves consciously and unconsciously each day. Gene tells us that when you ask better questions, you’ll get better answers. One bit of advice he gives is to have key questions written out to ask yourself each day. Ask yourself questions such as, “What do I need to do in order to....?” This shifts your perception of the world around you and helps you find the right answers.

We control how we think about anything, and the way to control that is by asking empowering questions. This is what Gene teaches his clients and what he wants to teach you in today’s episode.
Here’s what Jake and Gene talked about in this episode:

Asking the right questions
Focus determines perception
Meditation as a game-changer
Examining your network of people

OSR 91: Do The Hustle! From Pursecase To Melrose PR, Kelley Weaver

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jul 08, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 91: Do the Hustle! From Pursecase to Melrose PR Kelley Weaver
In this episode, Jake is talking with Kelley Weaver, founder of Melrose PR and creator of Pursecase.

Kelley started her public relations company, Melrose, in 2012 after doing PR for a while. Working in PR, Kelley is always on the go and always juggling things. After finding herself constantly dropping her phone or leaving it somewhere, she realized that she desperately needed a case that would hold her phone, credit cards, and money. She found a phone case from overseas that had a handle, but it didn’t have a pocket for credit cards and money. After talking about her wishes for a case like that to several friends, one of them encouraged her to make it before someone else did. Kelley pitched her idea on Shark Tank and went on to make the product, Pursecase, and it became a hit.

Kelley now runs both her PR firm and the Pursecase company. Her passion lies in marketing, and so she’s had to find balance in running both companies. It’s been hard at times to find that balance and Kelley has learned a lot along the way. The partner she started Pursecase with decided to move on from the company and so in the midst of that, Kelley had to learn how to handle losing a business partner as well as a friend.

Listen in as Kelley tells us how she moved forward with her dreams, found balance, and dealt with the unexpected changes along the way.
Here’s what Jake and Kelley talked about in this episode:

Finding reassurance through a sounding board
Dealing with the big shift
Think through all the parts of the business before you start
Reaching out to mentors and business connections

OSR 90: Moving The Needle, Joe Sweeney

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jul 01, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 90: Moving the Needle With Joe Sweeney
In this episode, Jake is talking with Joe Sweeney, New York Times Bestselling author.

Joe grew up in Madison, Wisconsin, as number nine of ten children. He attributes his knowledge of networking to his parents and his life growing up. His parents taught him that if you thought life would be all about you, you wouldn’t make it in this organized chaos of their family life. So Joe grew up learning that you that you had to watch out for other people. The great networkers understand that networking is a place where you give and serve, not just get things for yourself.

In his life, Joe learned that birth order has a huge effect on what kind of networker you can become. The youngest members of families often feel as if they’re not taken seriously and so they often spend their lives fighting to get the recognition they desire. This can drive them to become great networkers.

Listen in as Joe talks today about what drove him into networking and how you can improve your own networking skills to help you in your personal and professional life. Networking is not about you and what you can get, but what you can give to others. Keeping that in mind can help you build bridges between people and help you move in the right direction toward your goals.
Here’s what Jake and Joe talked about in this episode:

How birth order effects your networking skills
Reframe what networking is about
Networking is not about you
Find out something personal about people and then do something memorable
The benefit of getting quiet

Networking is a Contact Sport

OSR 89: Bold Unleash Your Hero With Sara Speicher

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jun 24, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 89: Bold Unleash Your Hero with Sara Speicher
In this episode, Jake is talking with Sara Speicher, one of the authors from the book BOLD!: Helping YOU Unleash the Hero Within.

When she was 20 years old, Sara received offers to play basketball in New York City. She was from a small European town where everyone knew everyone else and she was close to her family, so the thought of leaving was terrifying. But with encouragement from her parents, Sara took one of the offers and headed off to New York, where life became completely different and she had to learn English and learn to live on her own.

Now living in the United States, Sara went to school and completed her degree at the time that the market crashed. This put her at a disadvantage of competing with Americans for the limited jobs available. But Sara did find a job and she launched into the working world in a couple different jobs—until she was laid off right along the same time that she learned she was pregnant.

Sara now works as a marketing consultant and helps businesses grow and improve their inner workings and outer image. Working with businesses helps Sara also see what attitudes and behaviors can help people in their own personal lives as well. Listen in as Sara talks about the things she learned in business and how it can help you find your path in your personal and professional life.
Here’s what Jake and Sara talked about in this episode:

Finding the positive during dark times
Investing in a support team to help you grow, both personally and in business
Sometimes the best ideas come while doing nothing
Know what type of person you are to help you in your path

OSR 88: Selling Like A Monk With Martin Stellar

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jun 17, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 88: Selling Like a Monk With Martin Stellar
In this episode, Jake is talking with Martin Stellar, a writer, marketer, and ex-monk who talks with us today about selling every day.

Martin started as an atheist who got into monkhood through visiting at a monastery. He started spending time there and slowly getting into the lifestyle. It was a slow process before he became a full on monk and took the vows, but it was a life that drew him in with its relaxing, calming atmosphere that drew him away from a life that wasn’t quite working out for him.

After twelve years as a monk, Martin left the monastery. Even though he’s no longer living as a monk, he continues to use parts of the lifestyle in his life today and in selling himself and his work. Meditation, discipline, and learning to smile even through the hard times can have a great benefit to your life, as Martin has learned and reminds us today. Want to be happy in your life? Don’t try to search for it. As Martin tells us, if we want to find happiness, we’ll be looking the other way when it comes by. Find happiness in life, not in things.

Listen in as Martin tells us how to be mindful of your attitude, the importance of smiling, and how to live our happiest lives.
Here’s what Jake and Martin talked about in this episode:

Taking things in a light-hearted way
Benefits of a morning ritual
Make space for meditation and make a habit of it
Happiness is a consequence
Failure as a part of success

Wed, Jun 10, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 87: Master Your Mindset with Rob Scott
In this episode, Jake is talking with Rob Scott, who is helping people change their lives by changing their mindsets.

Rob grew up in a very dysfunctional life as a child, going through abuse for a number of years. That lead to him getting into addiction as a teen. He struggled with homelessness and going in and out jail, along with fighting cancer. His life of struggle seemed to have no way out. Finally, Rob realized that he was keeping himself stuck in this hard life. From that point, he began his own self reset. He went from being homeless to becoming vice president of technology for a company and had a lot of people working under him. Rob attributes this change to his own conscious evolution.

So what is conscious evolution and how do we use it to change our lives? Through his life, Rob learned that most of us are our own biggest problems in life. We need to become aware of our own real issues and our mindsets in order to get out of the places we’re stuck in. He began a podcast on this topic, which gained in popularity and soon he had people asking him to coach them in their own conscious evolution.

Rob now uses his own experience to help others find their self resets and change their lives. Listen in to today’s episode to learn how you can begin your own conscious evolution and change your mindset to change your life.
Here’s what Jake and Rob talked about in this episode:

How to change your story
Altering our lenses
Why so many of us resist change
“What do I need to do?” versus “Who do I need to be?”

Wed, Jun 03, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 86: The Giant Rock and Chad Meek
In this episode, Jake is talking with entrepreneur and screenwriter Chad Meek.

Chad is coming to us from his cabana in sunny Mexico. Not all of us get to live a relaxing life along the ocean, but Chad tells us how we could get that life if we want. Chad ended up in Mexico after traveling for a long time with his wife in search of a place to settle down. They traveled down to Mexico and fell in love with the area, so they decided to make it their home.

Chad’s own self reset began early in his life. His parents were alcoholics and he spent time being homeless when he was young. He had a lot of negativity in his life and people telling him he coludn’t do things, but Chad didn’t listen to that. He took the negativity as challenges and pushed on through failures and setbacks to work toward the life he wanted. Now Chad lives his dream life in Mexico and has written a book and screenplay that is on its way toward being turned into a movie.

Throughout his life, Chad learned that you have to live in the moment and don’t let anyone hold you back. If you want to live on the beach in Mexico, work your way toward that goal! Listen in as Chad tells us how to find what you love to do and how to turn your life into the one you’re dreaming about.
Here’s what Jake and Chad talked about in this episode:

Pushing past the negative
Create smaller goals that lead to larger successes
Not letting fear interfere with your goals
The key to success

OSR 85: Locking Down The Truth With Marci Lock

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, May 27, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 85: Locking Down the Truth With Marci Lock
In this episode, Jake is talking with health and fitness expert Marci Lock.

As she was growing up, Marci struggled with controlling her body, just like most people do. When she finally learned how to handle her body through her mind, she wanted to spread that knowledge to others and help them too.

Marci teaches that to have full health and happiness, it’s important to learn to balance your mind and body. Most of us are afraid to get to that point because it seems too hard and overwhelming. But if we want to make that change in our lives, we need to push ourselves ahead and take the first step by focusing on just one piece at a time. Breaking a path up into smaller points can make it easier and help us reach that overall goal.

Marci wanted an epic life and in order to get that, she knew she had to push herself past the limitations she thought were in front of her. How far she could go was all based on her own mindset and she wasn’t about to let it stand in her way.

So ask yourself: What are you committed to? What do you want in your life? And how hard are you going to push to get that? Listen in as Marci tells us how she changed her life and how we can do the same.
Here’s what Jake and Marci talked about in this episode:

Fitness as 100% Mindset
One step at a time
Fear or Faith
The Law of Attraction

OSR 84: RUNA Clean Energy With Dan MacCombie

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, May 20, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 84: RUNA Clean Energy with Founder Dan MacCombie
In this episode, Jake is talking with Dan MacCombie, Founder of RUNA Clean Energy.

Dan was a marine biology major and his friend Tyler a creative writing major during college. Both of them took time off during college to travel and study in the Amazon. Both of them saw that indigenous communities in the Amazon faced a lot of agricultural limits and whenever they needed money to support their families, they had to cut down their native forests. When they came back to college, Dan and Tyler had to write a business plan for a class. They wrote a business plan that would use guayusa, an Amazonian caffeinated tree from which the leaves can be brewed like a tea. Dan and Tyler decided to move to Ecuador and start the business in order to help the people in the Amazon area.

Dan grew up in a family that encouraged helping others and working toward social justice and fair opportunities for everyone. He knew that he wanted to find a way to help people and our planet. RUNA gives him that opportunity and allows him to do that.

All of us can make a difference in our world, no matter where you are in your life or financial situation. All you have to do is start small and go from there. Take a chance doing something that seems insignificant and see where it takes you. Even the smallest opportunity can take you somewhere big, so don’t wait to follow your dreams and goals.

Listen in as Dan give some advice on how to get started as an entrepreneur and how to help others as you work toward your dreams.
Here’s what Jake and Dan talked about in this episode:

Using business for social justice and fair opportunities
How our curiosity can be used to help others
We all have a spark of greatness we can let shine
How to get yourself going when you lack motivation

Operation Self Reset Episode 83: The One You Feed Will Win With Eric Zimmer
In this episode, Jake is talking with Eric Zimmer, host of the podcast The One You Feed.

Eric is the kind of person who tends to follow fun ideas that hit him. Sometimes it’s not a great habit, but other times it works out really well. That’s how he started his podcast, The One You Feed, which is about bettering yourself and your life through habits, wisdom, and motivation.

Motivation is a great thing in our lives, but as Eric explains, we need to train ourselves to follow through even when that motivation fails us. Just having an idea doesn’t bring about results. We have to do the work all the way through the project. Some days we’ll run out of steam and won’t feel like doing the work, but if we allow ourselves to rely only on “feeling” like working because of motivation we’re likely to never reach the end product. We need to focus more on our habits to do the work rather than hoping for motivation each day.

Eric uses meditation in his life to help him with his motivation and habits. Our society encourages immediate response to events, which can be a bad thing a lot of times. As Eric explains, if someone cuts us off in traffic, our immediate response is to get angry. But with meditation, Eric learned how to take a step back and pause. That pause in his life allowed him to rethink his immediate response and learn new habits in responding to situations. Eric tells us how he learned to incorporate meditation in his life and how to keep yourself from expecting to feel peaceful and calm as soon as you try it. It can take time to experience the true benefits of meditation, but it can help a lot in calming your life and teaching you new habits.

Listen in to today’s episode as Eric explains how to use habits, meditation, and more to get our lives unstuck and rolling forward again.
Here’s what Jake and Eric talked about in this episode:

Motivation versus habit
Micro-habits: Starting small
The benefits of meditation
Getting unstuck

OSR 82: Become Rich As A King With Douglas Goldstein

Operation Self Reset Episode 82: Become Rich as a King with Douglas Goldstein
In this episode, Jake is talking with Douglas Goldstein, a certified financial planner and co-author of Rich as a King: How the Wisdom of Chess Can Make You a Grandmaster at Investing.

Doug co-authored the book Rich as a King with chess champion Susan Polgar. The story of how they became a team started many years ago in Communist Hungary where Susan grew up. Her father believed that genius and success could be taught and instilled in someone and that it wasn’t just luck or natural born talent. So he fought for the right to homeschool his children and Susan grew up spending her days playing chess. Doug himself is the father of four children, two of whom are chess champions. He would sit in on his kids’ chess lessons and learned how to examine his moves from the chess tutor. It hit him that the questions the chess coach would ask about chess could also be applied to investing.

From there, Doug spoke to Susan Polgar about what she thought about the lessons pertaining to chess and investing. They discovered that they had a lot of thoughts that worked for both fields, which lead to them writing the book together. It became obvious that a chess grandmaster was a great person to teach about investing through strategic thinking.

Listen in as Doug talks about how to use strategic thinking from chess to investing. In this episode, he gives advice on how to make smart investment moves and improve your financial future.
Here’s what Jake and Douglas talked about in this episode:

Chess and investing: Examining your bad moves
Look at the whole board to make your move
Start with tiny habits
Why people make the wrong investing decisions

OSR 81: Attracting Money With Your Mind, James Goi jr.

Wed, Apr 29, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 81: Attract Money With Your Mind, James Goi Jr.
In this episode, Jake is talking with James Goi, author of the book How to Attract Money Using Mind Power.

James came to California over 30 years ago and once there, he kept coming across books on mind power, metaphysics, and spirituality. He’d never known about these areas before, but he began studying it and eventually teaching it. James found that when you started applying metaphysics and mind power to money, you could really see a lot of progress and success in regards to money.

James reminds us that many people believe that if you think positively, you can attract positive things in your life. When you apply mind power the way that James teaches it, you can then change the world around you. We are already using mind power in our daily lives constantly, even though we don’t realize it. James tells us that we think that we’re not good enough for a raise we’re hoping for or to get the attention of the person we’re interested in, we’re already using mind power to set ourselves up for failure. But if we turn that around and begin to use mind power in a positive way, we can completely change our lives and get what we want.

How can you do this in your own life? James explains that all we have to do is to start to think and speak positively. Eliminate negative thoughts and speech from your life. Listen in as James tells us how to do this and change our lives.
Here’s what Jake and James talked about in this episode:

How we use mind power in our daily lives
Change your thinking to change your life
Use mind power to change your finances
Improve your life by removing negativity

OSR 80: Making Connections With Geoff Woods

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Apr 22, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 80: Making Connections With Geoff Woods
In this episode, Jake is talking with Geoff Woods, host of the podcast The Mentee.

Geoff works in medical device sales as his day job and loves his job, but toward the end of 2013, one of his colleagues had a stroke. That event made Geoff ask himself, “What would happen if I had a stroke and could no longer work?” He realized that his family would be in a tough situation if that happened. The next week another event happened that made Geoff again look hard at his life: a company change caused his salary to be suddenly cut by 40%.

Those two things changed Geoff’s outlook on his life. He knew he needed to turn things around and set out on a path that would ensure security for his family. He asked himself who were the five people he spent most of his time with and were those five people in the place that he wanted to be in ten years. Those people are still good friends of his, but he realized that he needed to surround himself with inspiring people that could help him move forward and accelerate his life. That is what led him to create his podcast The Mentee and teach others how to do this in their own lives too.

In today’s episode, Geoff demonstrates how to turn your life onto the path you’re dreaming of. Take advantage of opportunities in every day life to let people know what you’re working on or are interested in doing. As Geoff shows us, you never know when someone can be the first step in getting you in that direction, one degree in the six degrees that separate you from your dream life.

So what do you want to do with your life? Where do you want to be in ten years? How will your family survive if you are no longer able to work? Ask yourself these questions as you listen in to Geoff’s advice on how to get yourself on that path to get yourself out there and get the life and security you want.
Here’s what Jake and Geoff talked about in this episode:

How to find the 5 people you need in your life
Turn friends into the first degree of your six degrees of separation
Use your best judgment in deciding when to talk about your aspirations
Get yourself out there

He then decided to do a lot of work on his own self in changing his outlook on his worth. Nick’s life had gotten so dark that he came close to wanting to take his own life. He knew he had to change things, so he turned inward and began reading spiritual books to bring him closer to God. That led to Nick reading self-help books and helped him to rebuild his relationships with his family, especially his mother. He uses his experiences now to help people realize that they can keep pushing ahead through the dark times in their lives to find the happiness and success they want, as long as they believe.

OSR 75: On The Hook Challenge, Let’s Do This With Stefanie Ziev

Wed, Mar 18, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 75: On the Hook Challenge, Let’s Do This With Stefanie Ziev
In this episode, Jake is talking with certified life coach Stefanie Ziev.

Stefanie is the founder of the On the Hook movement. We put ourselves on the hook for various things every day. We make goals for ourselves, such as losing weight or writing a book, but we seem to easily find reasons to let ourselves off the hook. We’ll spend our time watching TV instead or sleeping in instead of working on our goals. So Stefanie decided to make a change and put herself on the hook for good to help her reach her goals. Others have joined in with her in the On the Hook challenge, putting themselves on the hook for the goals they’ve had for themselves and building accountability to help them reach these goals.

Stefanie now works as a certified life coach, but she started her career as a TV executive. Stefanie spent her childhood in summer camps and continued attending camp until she was 27, working as the assistant director. She loved being a coach and managing a team in camp and in her career. When Stefanie realized that she hated her job, she knew she needed a change and decided to go for what she really wanted to do in life. It worked out well: right after she got her certification as a life coach, she was let go from her TV network job.

Listen in as Stefanie explains how we all can put ourselves on the hook and begin to change our lives to move toward our dreams.
Here’s what Jake and Stefanie talked about in this episode:

Reaching your goals by building accountability
Being smart about going for your dreams
How to find balance in your life
To “verb-noun” myself and others

Marc has had a lot of ups and downs in his life. At one point, he had success in the real estate business running a company that was doing very well.

Marc has always had a passion for personal development. Even while working in real estate, he was mentoring and coaching other people when he could. That passion has led him into working as a coach as well as hosting a podcast which helps people discover why they might need a coach in their lives.

OSR 72: Reset Your Goals In 2015

Wed, Feb 25, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 72: Reset Your Goals in 2015
In this episode, Jake is talking about resetting your goals.

Why are we talking about goals in February? Didn’t we all make our goals at the end of December or beginning of January? Yes, we probably did, but if you’re like most people, those goals are long gone. So now it’s time to get moving on resetting those goals or creating new ones that you’ll actually stick to.

Goals can be anything—a personal goal, a health goal, financial, emotional, and more. Goals can help us pursue and reach the things we want most in life. But why don’t we set goals in the first place? Fear can be a huge obstacle that keeps us from setting goals. But if you could succeed and make yourself happier than you’ve ever been before, why are you letting fear of what might happen stop you?

We can move past our fear, as Jake encourages us to do in this episode. Ask yourself a few questions to help you move past that fear and move forward in achieving your goals. Then use Jake’s advice to determine what your one big goal is and how you can start moving toward it.
Here’s what Jake talked about in this episode:

Why don’t we set goals?
Questions to ask your fear
Choose your one big goal
How to move toward your goals

Operation Self Reset Episode 71: Mind & Body Reset with Teela Herman
In this episode, Jake is talking with Teela Herman.

Teela has undergone an amazing transformation and reset in her life. The death of her father hit her hard and though she knew his poor health had led to his passing, she let her mourning turn her toward that same path. She soon found herself in a bad place physically, emotionally, and mentally. It was some unexpected news about her husband’s health that made her realize she had to change to make things better for herself and her family.

Teela learned from a young age to turn to food to distract herself from the problems in her life as well as the celebrations and good news. It was a TV show that made her realize she was putting food ahead of her family and that it was time to make a change. With Lent just around the corner, Teela used that as a motivation to help her move past her addiction to junk food.

Listen in as Teela talks about her journey and how she ended up losing over 100 pounds.
Here’s what Jake and Teela talked about in this episode:

The impact of bad health on family
Juice dieting versus lifestyle change
How to get started juicing
How to keep your focus on your lifestyle change

OSR 70: Is 2015 Your Year?

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Feb 11, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 70: Is 2015 Your Year?
In this episode, Jake is talking with author and pastor Bill Jenkins.

Bill Jenkins has recently released his fourth book, fifteen: Giving the Number 15 a Prophetic Voice to Release a Vision for Success. He noticed how many times the number 15 appears in the bible and that these mentions revolved around five main themes. Bill then took these themes and messages to apply them to people’s lives and lead them to success.

The number fifteen pops up throughout our lives, from sports to music and more. In the bible, one of the most memorable occurrances of the number fifteen is with King Hezekiah. He was given a message from a prophet sent by God in the fourteenth year of his reign: he needed get his affairs in order because he was about to die. Rather than get upset, Hezekiah began to pray to God. God then sent the prophet back to Hezekiah to tell him that he wasn’t going to die and instead would have a fifteen year extension in his reign. How does this relate to our lives today? 2014 may have been one of the worst years in your life, but you can turn it around to make 2015 into the best year yet.

Listen in as Bill explains how using the themes surrounding the number 15 can change the direction of your life and bring people and success to you.
Here’s what Jake and Bill talked about in this episode:

How the themes surrounding 15 relate to our lives today
Shift the tide and bring people to you
Turn 2015 into your best year yet

Operation Self Reset Episode 69: Connecting Your Dots With David Ralph From Join Up Dots Podcast
In this episode, Jake is talking with the host of Join Up Dots podcast David Ralph.

David stumbled upon podcasts one day while bored and unhappy in his career. He had quit his job and wasn’t sure what to do next, so he turned to building websites. He had wanted to try his own thing, but soon found that building websites wasn’t exactly it. But when he came across podcasts, he found a new world that felt like the perfect fit for his life.

But getting into the podcast world required David to convince himself that he could do this. He didn’t expect an overnight success and knew he would need time to practice and find his groove, so he put his focus on that when he first began. He had to work on moving past the fears that could have held him back in order to find his success.

So how does a person find success and find the courage to walk away from a guaranteed thing and step out into the unknown? Listen in as David and Jake talk about finding what makes you happy and having the courage to follow that path.
Here’s what Jake and David talked about in this episode:

Facing the mental barriers that can hold you back
How to find success
Doing what you love
Finding more time in your day

OSR 68: Not Just Paleo True Health & Happiness with Evan Brand

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jan 28, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 68: Not Just Paleo, True Health & Happiness With Evan Brand
In this episode, Jake is talking with paleo expert Evan Brand.

During college, Evan started struggling with depression and his health. He found himself struggling to get out of bed each day and was not happy with his life. He began to learn about the connection between the things he was eating and his health.

Paleo eating means that you can eat good quality, whole foods and stay full longer, without the big spikes and dips in your blood sugar throughout the day that our typical American diets produce. Once Evan switched to a paleo diet, his life, body, and energy completely changed.

Our energy levels and brain activity don’t depend just on what we eat. What we do in our daily lives also affects how our body works. We’re a nation that is addicted to our cellphones, tablets, and laptops, and using them at night is affecting our sleep. Evan gives some tips on today’s episode about how to improve our sleep, which will in turn improve our energy and brain activity.
Here’s what Jake and Evan talked about in this episode:

What paleo is and what it does for your body
Why your brain needs fat
How light affects your mood

OSR 67: Dan Pena Will Shake Your World

Wed, Jan 21, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 67: Dan Pena Will Shake Your World
In this episode, Jake is talking with the founder of QLA Methodology Dan Pena.

Dan discovered a way to turn $820 into $450 million, but this episode is not about money. It’s about becoming the best person you can be and having confidence and passion to move forward in your dreams. Dan grew up in the barrio of east Los Angeles, but now lives in a castle in Scotland. He joined the military in the 1960s, went to Officers Candidate School and became second lieutenant, and then an officer and a gentleman. Dan then went to college, got a scholarship for law school though he never went, and then worked on Wall Street, where he turned a little money into a lot.

Dan now uses his experience to teach others how to do the same thing he did. He believes that we are all the people that we spend the most time with. So if you spend time with people who spend all day drinking beer and watching TV, you’ll probably spend your life doing that too. If you want success, spend your time with people who are also pursuing success. Dan reminds us that money isn’t everything, but that a lot of necessities in life do require money.

Listen in as Dan talks about what keeps us from our full potential and how to move past it to find success.
Here’s what Jake and Dan talked about in this episode:

Make the money, then do the good with it
Unfulfilled potential
Making the best first impression

Wed, Jan 14, 2015


Operation Self Reset Episode 66: Peter Sage; Purpose, Goals, and Giving Back to the World
In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with professional speaker Peter Sage.

Peter Sage is a busy man. He’s an entrepreneur as well as a speaker who has appeared on many stages and works with charities. His biggest goal is to make the world a better place. His focus at the moment is on space energy, which is harnessing the sun’s light and turning it into free energy for all of us. This is different than the solar panels we have on earth in that it’s solar panels in space, where they can absorb the sun’s light 24 hours a day and produce unending energy.

Peter explains that many times what is stopping us from moving ahead in life or going for our dreams are our own behaviors, whether we recognize it or not. We often can’t see how our behavior is holding us back until later in life when we look back at our past. So how can we figure out now if our behavior is our biggest problem? Peter explains how to take another look at yourself to see what might be the real problem in your life. Our fears and stress come from our own behavior, and we can break free of them by helping others instead of ourselves.
Here’s what Jake and Peter talked about in this episode:

Examining our behavior patterns in our lives
Where our fears come from
Get out of your own stress by helping others

Operation Self Reset Episode 65: Veteran Chad Grills Book, Veterans Rebuild America
In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with Chad Grills, an Army Infantry veteran, entrepreneur, and author.

Chad is the author of the book Veterans: Rebuild America. Chad joined the military in 2006 after looking for more of a challenge than he was getting in college. He joined the Army and then went to Infantry school in Ft. Benning, Georgia. He then had the choice of either joining ROTC and going to college or deploying to Iraq. He chose to deploy to Iraq, which he credits with completely changing his life.

Chad believes we all have a pull toward adventure and creativity, but that it’s easy to let it be drowned out by daily life and other commitments. It’s easy to think we’re not good enough to do all of the things we’ve dreamed of doing, but we need to find a way to push past those fears and take charge of the life we want. Chad talks about how he reached for his own dreams and gives his tips for success.
Here’s what Jake and Chad talked about in this episode:

Staying true to ourselves
Questioning whether you’re “good enough”
What is success?
Tips for success in life

Operation Self Reset Episode: Master Life Coach Jacqueline Hurst
In this episode, Jake is talking with Jacqueline Hurst, a life coach who learned to help herself and now uses that knowledge to help others.

Jacqueline was once a downtrodden person, addicted to drugs and sick and battling anxiety. She lived like that until one day she decided that she was going to fight to live the life she wanted. But this journey into a better life wasn’t easy, and Jacqueline fought against help. She couldn’t find the right help that she needed, so she needed to teach herself what she needed in order to break through her struggles.

Jacqueline tells us an amazing story of how she turned a frightening experience into something good and uplifting in her own mind, and she details how we can do that in our own lives too. Positive thinking is good, but we need to be able to use that to move forward rather than just waiting for things to happen to us.

Listen in as Jacqueline talks about how to begin changing your own life and how you can join in her upcoming life coaching classes.
Here’s what Jake and Jacqueline talked about in this episode:

The importance of having your own back
Controlling your mind
Positive thinking
Feeling good and the power of journaling

Operation Self Reset Episode 63: One Comment Could Change Your Life
 

In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking about how doing one small thing can change your life.

 

In his podcast, Jake connects with a lot of people from different backgrounds and involved in different projects. After interviewing these people, Jake takes the time to reconnect again with his guests and keep his name out there around the Internet by commenting on his guests’ blogs. What he never expected, however, was that doing this one simple thing would lead to an amazing new opportunity.

 

Jake tells us about a new project he’s helping with called Goaly.com. Goaly is a website that connects people with coaches in topics or fields they’re looking for help with. As Jake explains, if you’re looking for help with quitting smoking, you can check Goaly and find a coach who will give you tips and advice. This opportunity came to Jake through a comment he left on a former guest’s blog, which was found by the creator of Goaly. Jake is now working with Goaly to help provide advice and tips for your problems and to bring new coaches and experts on the podcast that can give you the answers you need. Listen in for more details on this exciting new opportunity!

 
Here’s what Jake talked about in this episode:

How a small action can change your life

Wed, Sep 17, 2014


Operation Self Reset Episode 62: How to Keep Your Cool
In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking about how to keep your cool in tough situations.

Jake tells us about some of his own experiences in tough situations that could have made him loose his cool and stress out or react in a bad way. He details one experience he had with a bank loan he had taken out in order to fix up his house. The loan was scheduled to come due about the time of the big market upheaval a few years ago. Jake had the ability to pay his loans, but due to the changes in the market the bank asked him to find a new bank to take over his loans, explaining that they were “cleaning their books.” Jake thought this wouldn’t be a problem, but after talking with many other banks, he couldn’t find anyone who would take over his loan because he was upside down in his mortgage.

Even though Jake could pay his loans, the bank wouldn’t keep him as a customer and he couldn’t find another bank to take over. This led to Jake having to go to court over this whole situation. In this podcast, Jake tells us how he kept his cool throughout this mess and how you can use these tips to help you get through your own tough times.
Here’s what Jake talked about in this episode:

Listing the bad and the good
Taking one day at a time
Playing nice

Operation Self Reset Episode 61: Never Give Up Guy, Scott Lesnick
In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with Scott Lesnick.
Scott is a professional speaker who originally started working for Calvin Klein in New York after college. When that didn’t work out, he moved back home to Milwaukee. He set out trying to figure out what he really wanted to do with his life. Scott knew he wanted to become a professional speaker, so he started out by writing books on the topic and by taking on free speaking jobs while still keeping his day job.
A lot of us let fear stop us from doing what we want in life or else we let what other people think stop us. Sometimes people react badly to our biggest dreams. But Scott reminds us that if we’re okay with our goals in life and the people who mean the most to us are okay with it, it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks.
Scott shares with us his thoughts on how to move forward in our dreams despite what everyone else may think and how to know when you’re ready for your own self-reset. He also shares some tips for preparing for public speaking, and how imagining yourself being successful leads to actual success.
Wrapping up this episode, Scott talks about the motivation behind writing his book, Kidjacked – A Father’s Story, and how he did whatever he had to do in order to get his kids back after they were taken to the Middle East. Listen in to this incredible story and how he became the guy who never gives up.

Here’s what Jake and Scott talked about in this episode:

How to keep fear from stopping you

How to prepare for public speaking

“Stage time. Stage time. Stage time.”

Doing whatever it takes

OSR 060: Putting Money Back In Your Pocket

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Aug 20, 2014


 
Operation Self Reset Episode 60: Putting Money Back in Your Pocket
 

In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with Bob Wheeler, author of The Money Nerve.

 

The idea for The Money Nerve came from Bob’s experiences in working with people on their taxes. He found that often, the meetings turned into therapy sessions. His clients would often get upset over their money issues and they believed they were the only people in the world who couldn’t get their finances under control. Bob wanted to help people understand that they’re not alone in money issues, so he began working on what would become The Money Nerve.

 

Bob explains that we all have certain things we believe about ourselves and money. Some people make mistakes with money when they’re young, so they believe for the rest of their lives that they’re terrible with money. These beliefs are often the things holding us back from learning better money management. We also let things like fear of success or guilt of living comfortably keep us from making good money decisions.

 

Listen in as Bob explains how we can turn our money struggles around to make the smarter financial decisions we’re hoping for.

 
Here’s what Jake and Bob talked about in this episode:

How to let go of our money beliefs
The fear of money
Understanding where your money goes
Evaluate what your true goals are

Operation Self Reset Episode 59: Live in Trust, With Michael Hellerslien
 

In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with Michael Hellerslien.

 

Michael recently went through his own self reset, so he’s the perfect guest for this week’s podcast. Michael comes from a corporate background, with a ten year career in American and European corporations. He felt that there was always something missing from his life and his career became more of a duty than something he wanted to do. He found himself one day in this situation with the company he worked for in which he was asked to fix a problem in their system to allow them to stop the company from losing money. This fix allowed the bosses of the company to commit fraud. The company collapsed and Michael was then called up as a key witness against his bosses. That was the turning point for Michael, when he realized he had to change his life.

 

Through his experiences in the corporate world and the fallout afterward, Michael realized that he was living for the rest of the world and not for himself. It’s something that many of us do in our own lives. We live for the rest of the world by buying the car or the house that gives us status or dating the people that make us look good. We buy the things we don’t really need all just to fit in with everyone else. But what Michael realized and what he now tries to teach everyone else is that we need to find what makes us happy without thinking about what impresses everyone else. We need to learn to be our own selves and not the person someone else wants us to be.

 

Listen in as Michael tells us what led to his career and life change, and how he now works to spread his new awareness to others.

 
Here’s what Jake and Michael talked about in this episode:

Why it’s not about the world outside of you
Peeling back the mask
Self-love and self-confidence

In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking about practicing what you preach.

 

Jake has been working the Miracle Morning as described by Hal Elrod into his days and tells us the results of how this worked for him.

With the help of The Five Minute Journal, Jake records the great parts of his day along with affirmations and thoughts on how to make each day better. He tells us how this is working out for him and why we should try this out for ourselves.

 

The reason Jake brings these guests onto the podcasts isn’t just to tell us what to do. Jake is trying these tips out in his own life as well. So listen in as Jake tells us how these tips are working out for him and how you can incorporate them into your own life.

 
Here’s what Jake talked about in this episode:

Operation Self Reset Episode 57: Green Beret, Robert Lewis on Goals, Fears, and Life
 

In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with Green Beret Robert Lewis.

 

Robert comes from a long line of military men in his family. He originally never planned to join the military and went off to college. Then September 11th happened and served as a wake up call to Robert that the military was where he actually should be. Following the advice of his family members, he finished his education first and then headed off to basic training at Fort Benning, Georgia, after graduation.

 

Even though he was from a military family, enlisting and going through training taught Robert a lot about himself. He was surprised to find that he had a lot more potential, strength, and endurance than he knew once he cleared his mind and focused on the task ahead. Robert reminds us that this can be true even for those of us not in the military. If we clear our minds and focus on our tasks, we can push ourselves past the obstacles we think are in our way and achieve anything we want. You can choose to hide from your fears, or you can just do it and move ahead in life.

 

So how do you move forward? Robert explains how to set smart goals that can help motivate you and get you moving forward. Stay accountable to yourself and track your progress to push you harder in your quest.
Here’s what Jake and Robert talked about in this episode:

Embrace the Suck
Realizing your potential
Don’t let anything control you 100%

 
Mentioned in this episode:

Far From Centered podcast
Love Me When I’m Gone

In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with author Michael J. Maher.

 

Michael believes that a handwritten note can be one of the most powerful marketing pieces in a company’s arsenal. But in our technology driven world, handwritten notes have become a lost cause. A handwritten, personal note can touch people in a way that a form written and printed letter or email never could. There are simple steps that can make your power notes have the big impact that you’re hoping for. Michael uses his book to tell us the seven steps to writing an effective handwritten note that gets results.

 

But the benefits of a handwritten note extend to more than just the way it makes the receiver feel. You receive benefits from the act of writing these notes too. They make you feel good and really connect you with the receiver in a way that an email can’t. The power of a handwritten note is that it can change the way people perceive you or a situation, and it can make people more likely to do things for you in the future or to think of you when they need something you have to offer.

 

Even if you’re not a salesperson, you can use the power of handwritten notes in your life and your job. Listen in as Michael tells us how to use handwritten notes in our lives.

 
Here’s what Jake and Michael talked about in this episode:

How to write an effective power note
The seven steps of handwritten notes
The power of the P.S.

 Operation Self Reset Episode 55: World Champion Public Speaker Ryan Avery
 

In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with Ryan Avery, Toastmasters International World Champion Public Speaker.

 

Ryan first got into public speaking during a time when he was searching for something new to do with his life. While watching videos on YouTube, he came across one about a World Championship Public Speaker and he decided that was what he wanted to do.

 

But how does someone become the World Champion Public Speaker, and what do you do once you reach that level? Ryan worked on his own public speaking skills by creating presentations and working with Toastmasters. Once he had earned the title of World Champion, he found that he was getting asked to speak to other people about becoming better public speakers. So Ryan decided to leave his former job and move to a new city in order to start his own company to teach others to become better public speakers. Even if you’re not giving huge presentations in front of thousands of people, you can still benefit from learning better verbal communication skills to improve your life.

 

Listen in as Ryan gives his advice on how we all can become better public speakers and use our voices.

 
Here’s what Jake and Ryan talked about in this episode:

How verbal communication skills impact the rest of your life
How to prepare yourself before speaking
What’s important in stage presence
Repetition and Consistency

Operation Self Reset Episode 54: Start Your Miracle Morning with Hal Elrod
 

In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with author Hal Elrod.

 

Hal experienced an event that completely changed his life. An accident with a drunk driver left him so injured that he actually died for six minutes. Even after being revived and waking from a coma, he still faced obstacles when doctors said he would never walk again. Weeks later, Hal took the first step of his new life. He used the things he learned when pulling himself out of the rock bottom moments of his life to write his first book to teach others how to change their own lives.

 

Later, Hal was back on top of the world, feeling great and living life as a success coach. But he began battling with depression and feeling like he was failing even though he worked to teach others how to succeed. It was a talk with a friend of his that made him realize that if you want things to change, you have to be willing to make that change. You can’t become a level 10 person if you’re not willing to change yourself in order to reach that higher level.

 

So Hal set out to change himself in order to change his life and reach that level 10 he was aiming for. He studied what other successful people were doing and what they claimed were the secrets behind their success. He found that the tips for success were usually the same: exercise, meditation, affirmations, visualization, reading, and journaling. Hal realized he didn’t do any of these, so he decided to find time to fit them into each day. Listen in as Hal tells us how these practices worked for him and whether they might work for you to help you find success in your own life.

 
Here’s what Jake and Hal talked about in this episode:

Being open to the change you need
Are you working to become a level 10?
Reinforcing the positive emotion during change
The six tips to a better you

Operation Self Reset Episode 53: Ignite Your Inner Athlete
In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with Scott Jones of the podcast Athlete on Fire.
Scott lives in Colorado and has a Masters degree in Exercise Physiology. He's been an athlete all of his life, and enjoys being competitive and playing. He and his family have started a lot of different businesses focusing on athletes and exercise and activity. He heard so many stories from different athletes about the things they've done, so he turned that into his podcast Athlete on Fire to share the stories with the rest of the world.
Professional athletes may look like superheroes who want to exercise constantly, but Scott found that they have the same hang ups that regular people have. They have to push themselves to get moving and to push past their boundaries. Even athletes struggle with wanting to sit on the couch sometimes rather than exercise. The secret for both athletes and regular people in anything they want to do is to break down the goals into smaller tasks, both physically and mentally. Scott lets us in on the secrets to working our way toward our big goals.
Listen in as Scott tells us tips and tricks from professional athletes that can help the rest of us too.

Here’s what Jake and Scott talked about in this episode:

How to break a big goal into smaller goals

Create habits that lead to success

Visualization and mediation

Successful eating habits for physical health

Operation Self Reset Episode 52: Peak Your Ability With Todd Herman
 

In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with Todd Herman from The Peak Athlete.

 

Todd grew up on a big ranch in Alberta, Canada, and has traveled and lived all across the world. He now lives in New York City, where he runs his website The Peak Athlete and works as a mental coach for athletes. Todd was a really good athlete in school, but he had no leadership skills and thought he knew everything. His coach pulled him aside and told him that he wasn’t going to get anywhere if he didn’t change his mental performance. So Todd started reading books on improving your mental performance and outlook, and learned that his mindset was just as important as his physical abilities.

 

As Todd tells us, there is a thinking world, a feeling world, and a behavioral world. This means that the way you think about yourself affects the way you feel about yourself, which then affects the way you act. If you think you aren’t good at something you have to do, you’ll feel bad and believe that you’ll do badly, which will then make you avoid doing it or else perform badly when you do face that situation. But this can be changed just by changing how you think. What aspects of your life are you letting your own thoughts about your abilities control how you handle them?

 

Listen in as Todd tells us how to bring out our best selves hidden inside our heads.

 
Here’s what Jake and Todd talked about in this episode:

How mental outlook affects physical performance
How parents can help their kids
Breaking through resistance to change

Operation Self Reset Episode 51: Bounce Back In Life With Jimmy Burgess
In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with author Jimmy Burgess.

Jimmy is from northwest Florida and grew up working in a family real estate company until he became burned out. He started working with a bank as a commercial lender right as the real estate boom hit. He was doing well and enjoyed his job, but still felt that something was missing. Jimmy soon realized that if something was going to change about his situation, he had to change to make it happen.

Jimmy began to focus on positivity. He started reading biographies by people who had led extraordinary lives. Jimmy left his job at the bank and began to focus on people. He asked people what they needed or wanted in their lives and businesses, and after a while he realized that he had two lists of people: ones who needed something, and ones who had what the other people needed. He started putting people together and helping them get what they needed through these connections. Soon Jimmy was thriving on his own in this new adventure.

But Jimmy lost himself again. He began focusing on himself rather than the people he had wanted to help. When faced with the reality of having to claim bankruptcy, he asked himself what had he done? He felt shame and guilt for putting his family into this situation. He had fallen into a tailspin that he couldn't stop. He realized he had to change again and get back to focusing on other people like he had originally intended.

Jimmy now uses his own life experiences to help coach and teach other people how to make changes and turn their lives into something positive. Listen in as Jimmy tells us about his struggles and how he turned his life around, and how he hopes to help you do the same.

Here’s what Jake and Jimmy talked about in this episode:

Change and motivation begins inside
How you react to challenges is up to you
Starting out the day thankful

OSR O49: One More Round With David Waknine

Wed, May 21, 2014


Operation Self Reset Episode 49: One More Round With David Waknine
 

In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with David Waknine, of the documentary One More Round.

 

Originally from Morocco, David was a Jewish boy who was treated as an outsider and bullied. When he moved to America, he found himself experiencing a similar situation, being an outsider in a new country and going through bullying again. He became a boxer at age eighteen, working with a trainer who inspired and motivated him to push himself. Boxing became something that gave David strength and confidence.

 

But David never felt that he had the confidence he should have had with the amount of press recognition he was getting. He felt out of place when the reporters were standing there waiting for him. He had a big fight scheduled at Madison Square Garden, but he never felt that he would be able to win. Everyone else had more confidence in him than David had in himself. He ended up losing the fight, and then David walked away from the sport. He had offers to come back, but his heart wasn’t in it.

 

After different changes in their lives, David and his trainer lost touch for a while. When his trainer contacted him again, it was to let him know that he had cancer. They began talking constantly again, and David’s trainer once again became his mentor. When his trainer passed away, David felt the urge to get back into the ring again after all this time. He faced a tough road to getting back into the ring after so long, but David was determined to honor his trainer’s memory and prove to himself that he could do this. The upcoming documentary One More Round is an inspiring film that follows his journey in and out of the ring.

 
Here’s what Jake and David talked about in this episode:

Not having confidence in yourself
Having a mentor who believes in you
Staying focused when life throws you curveballs

Operation Self Reset Episode 48: From Fired to Self Hired Now a Writer With Author Shana Norris
 

In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with Shana Norris, graphic designer and author.

 

Shana knew from a young age that she wanted to become an author one day, but her family encouraged her to have a backup plan. So she went to college and learned graphic design. She got a job with a newspaper company as a web designer and worked there for twelve years. During that time, she worked on her books and succeeded in getting a literary agent and publishing two young adult novels.

 

But just getting published doesn’t mean that everything will be rosy. Shana’s books weren’t bestsellers and her publisher decided not to take on any more books after the first two. Shana depended on her full-time job to pay her bills—until the day the company decided to lay off the entire web team. Shana didn’t let this bring her down. She decided to take control of her life and career by working as a freelance graphic designer and self-publishing a few of her books. She also helps Jake with Operation Self Reset each week by designing the graphics for the podcasts and writing the show notes.

 

Shana now works from home, still writing—she’s both writing for a publisher and continuing to self-publish—and doing freelance design work. Listen in to her advice on how to keep moving forward when life throws you curveballs and how to turn a bad situation into the life you’ve been looking for.

 
Here’s what Jake and Shana talked about in this episode:

Dealing with unexpected changes
Taking control of your life and career
Taking risks and stepping outside of your planned path
Giving up, but not forever

Operation Self Reset Episode 47: Keep Positive With Jon Gordon
In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with Jon Gordon, author of ten books on self development.

In his early thirties, Jon was struggling with his life. He was unhappy in his work, and so one day he asked himself what it was that he really wanted to do. He realized that he wanted to inspire and motivate people, so he started a website with a newsletter where he wrote a motivating thought each week. From there, he went on to writing motivational books and reaching out to help other people.

Jon teaches us that we should be open to finding our purpose. You were created for a purpose and are here in this life for a purpose. You can find your purpose as long as you open yourself up to looking for the signs. Figure out where you want to make an impact and put yourself into situations that allow you to do it.

Do you focus on fear or on faith? Even in bad circumstances, you can choose to stay positive and learn from the disappointments or setbacks. Listen in as Jon talks about how to stay motivated and positive even when things get hard.
Here’s what Jake and Jon talked about in this episode:

Finding your purpose
Passion in the mundane
Choosing to be positive

OSR 046: Wear Your Sunglasses Because Your Future Is Bright With Grant Cardone

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Apr 30, 2014


Operation Self Reset Episode 46: Wear Your Sunglasses Because Your Future is Bright With Grant Cardone
 

In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with Grant Cardone, author of The 10X Rule.

 

Grant wrote three books about selling and negotiating, and readers began writing to him asking about setting goals and how to stay with it. Grant wondered what was the problem people were having with goal setting and how could it be changed. He learned from his research into this problem that people aren’t setting high enough goals. We all have these voices—in our own heads or from parents—that tell us to “be reasonable” when we start thinking about crazy dreams and ideas. But why should we be reasonable? Why are we selling ourselves short?

 

As Grant reminds us what made America great was an abnormal drive for something that didn’t already exist. We live in a world of abnormal ideas and innovations, where standing out from the crowd can make you successful. Don’t settle for normal, push past reasonable and reach for the abnormal to find the happiness and success you want.

 

Listen in as Grant tells us how to push ourselves to find the abnormal desires that will bring us happiness, success, and break us out of the crowd.
Here’s what Jake and Grant talked about in this episode:

How to get out of the herd mentality
Get honest with yourself
Find your “why”
Flourish and prosper

What is holding you back from your bright future? Face the realities of your situation and ask yourself, “Why can’t I have what I really want?” Other people can only hold you back if you let them, but if you believe in yourself and are willing to step outside of what’s considered “normal,” you have a great chance of finding the future you want.

OSR 045: Be Ballsy and Be A Baller, With Author Melissa Krivachek

Wed, Apr 23, 2014


Operation Self Reset Episode 45: Be Ballsy and Become a Baller
 

In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with author Melissa M. Krivachek.

 

Melissa grew up in a tiny town in Iowa and started working in retail as a teenager. She moved up the ranks quickly and became a store manager for Wal-Mart at the age of nineteen. She had everything—a great salary, a big house, a good life. But then she was fired for doing the right thing and going up against her district manager. She had no savings and so things went downhill quickly. She moved to Chicago and worked for Family Dollar, but things weren’t working out as well as she’d hoped. She ended up living out of her car for a while at a rest stop. Eventually, Melissa realized she had to quit her job because it was making her so unhappy.

 

A call from someone trying to sell her weight loss shakes changed everything for Melissa. She had recently spent six days in jail for speeding and realized that she had to turn her life around. Melissa talked with Eric, the guy who randomly called her about these shakes, about whether he was happy and he laid out all of the problems in his life. They talked for five hours and Melissa encouraged him to follow his dreams and do what would make him happy. It hit her that everything she was telling Eric also applied to herself. Why wasn’t she following her own dreams and happiness?

 

Melissa had a degree in counseling psychology and she had learned a lot about people over the years from working in retail. She decided to follow her own advice and do what would make her happy, so she started to motivate and advise people on their lives and futures. Melissa took charge of her own life and her own future, moving past any doubts and fears, and changed everything. She is now the author of two motivational books and helps other people find their own way to success. Listen to her story and how she did it all for inspiration to reach for your own dreams.

Operation Self Reset Episode 44: Find Your Clarity With Author Jamie Smart
 

In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with Jamie Smart, author of the book Clarity: Clear Mind, Better Performance, Bigger Results.

 

Jamie grew up in Canada, but moved to the United Kingdom in his twenties. He started work doing project management, but started to feel that it wasn’t what he really wanted to do. A personal development course led him into quitting his job and taking a leap into personal coaching.

 

Jamie had a lot of success in his work, but inside he wasn’t feeling successful. He hired a personal coach for himself to help him realize that he was trying to find outside things to give him the satisfaction that could only come from inside himself.

 

People often believe that they need outside situations to feel good about their lives. For example, so many people say, “I’ll feel more secure when I get more money in the bank” or “I’ll be happier when I meet Mr. Right.” But feelings of security and happiness come from inside us, not from outside situations we don’t always have control over. Once we realize this, we can change our lives toward the better present and future we’re looking for. In today’s episode, Jamie gives us advice to help lead us toward clarity.

OSR 043: Set Up Goals With A Plan

Wed, Apr 09, 2014


Operation Self Reset Episode 43: Set Up Goals With A Plan
In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking about goals and creating a plan.

A recent survey showed that 97% of Americans do not set goals for themselves. Why is that? Are we afraid of goals? Do we think we don’t need them? Or do we just not know how to set goals?

Actually, yes to all of those! There are usually four reasons why people don’t set goals: Fear, poor self-image, they don’t think they need goals, and they don’t know where to start. Each of these problems can be easily overcome and in this episode, Jake gives some tips on how to move past fear and poor self-image, and explains why we need goals and how to begin setting them.

If you don’t set goals for yourself, how will you grow as a person and develop your skills? Goals help give us purpose in life and ignite passion for trying new things or learning new skills. Studies show that people who set goals make more than twice as much on average as people who don’t set goals. But setting goals isn’t just about finances, it’s about your self-worth and your happiness. You can push yourself to accomplish things you never imagined you could do just by setting goals for your life.

What are your goals? What have you always wanted to do in your life? Start setting goals—even if they’re small ones—and work your way toward changing your life.

MM #9: I can, I will, I Am

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Mon, Apr 07, 2014


 

If you start to change the way you speak, you can unlock a new way to look at the world. The other day I was talking with a personal coach. Yes, she was a life coach. I understand the importance of working with a coach who has knowledge in the field of high performance. During our talk she identified some of the key phrases that I kept repeating. It was kind of shocking to hear myself say, “I think,” “I don’t know,” “If I had the ability.” It made me think to myself, what kind of example am I setting for myself and my listeners?

I believe the words you use allow you to become more confident, outgoing, a better leader, or a better parent. Negative talk leads to negative thinking which leads to negative outcomes. I am not saying that I used negative talk during my session but I do understand the importance of checking the words I use to make sure I am in the right state of mind.

That conversation identified with me that I need to focus on what words I use. For this Motivational Minute, I titled it: I can, I will, I am. The reason for that is the three stages you go through when you want to accomplish something.

For example you want to become a doctor. When you identify that you want to become a doctor you say to yourself, “I can become a doctor.” The “I can” is stating that you believe you can but you are not 100% confident.

The second phase you will encounter is: “I will.” To use the same example from above you say, “I will become a doctor.” The words “I will” start to get used when you start to see progress, such as a major test successfully passed, and you become passionate toward the field of medicine.

The last stage is: I am. “I am a doctor” is used when you have accomplished your goal. You are now a practicing doctor. The words “I am” are identifying you with your goal.

The great thing about using the words “I am” is that you can apply it even before you are working toward your goal. To set this phrase with an example, let’s say you are poor at productivity. For some reason you are not one to be productive at all. Your current language you use with yourself is, “I am not productive.” I challenge you to change it. Start saying, “I am productive.” It’s a small word shift that will result in a large output change.

This mind trick does not happen quickly and you need to keep saying it. The possibilities for this are endless. You can say it like this: “I am awake,” “I am funny,” “I am a good story teller,” “I am outgoing in a party situation,” “I am very smart and understand these concepts.”
It might sound crazy, but give it a try. I challenge you to try it for 30 days. If you could, please fill in the blank, “I am ____________________,” and put it in the comments below!

Operation Self Reset Episode 42: Your Conscious Evolution with Noah Hammond
 

In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with Noah Hammond.

 

Noah is a self-help guru and he hopes to transform the world. Noah began his own self-transformation in the hopes of becoming a ladies man and having the confidence to attract women. But along the way, Noah found results that he hadn’t expected in the rest of his life.

 

Noah created a whole new persona online to teach other men how to attract women. Deciding to take a different approach than other dating gurus, his advice was never about “say this to make a woman go crazy for you,” instead it was focused on personality and behavior. He wanted to teach men how to bring out the best in themselves and have the confidence that attracts women. Eventually, Noah retired the other persona and began working under his own name to help people find their own confidence to make their lives better.

 

So how do we find the confidence we need in our lives? Noah believes that we all have confidence, but it’s our own thoughts and behaviors that hide it. We need to learn to work past our doubts to bring out that confidence inside us. One way to do this, Noah tells us, is to use affirmations. Whether you write them on your bathroom mirror or just say them out loud to yourself, find ways to boost your confidence through positive affirmations. It’s amazing how telling yourself that you are confident can boost your actual confidence. You have more confidence inside you than you may think. Find ways to unleash it and reach for the life you want.

MM #8: One Word That WIll Change Your Life

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Thu, Mar 27, 2014


If you had one word right now to explain your life, what would it be?

Would it be passion, love, compassion, desire, or hopeless, fearful, worthless?

What if latching onto one word could improve your life? What if it allowed you to mend broken relationships and feel fulfilled each day you wake up?

I want you to pick one word that describes the new you. I cannot pick the word to describe your life but I did pick one for myself. My one word is Drive. I need to have Drive to help push my business and family life to the next level. The word Drive may or may not affect you as this word affects me. That’s OK. You need to find a word that affects you like Drive affects me.

I discovered this one-word mentality after reading the book, “One Word That Will Change Your Life.” It was written by Dan Britton, Jimmy Page, and Jon Gordon. I just emailed Jon Gordon and he will be on the Operation Self Reset podcast coming up.

The overall basis of the book is to find a word that will describe your newfound success, clarity, power, and passion.

I love it because its simple, to the point and it works. It made me question the path of Operation Self Reset; what is it? Am I giving you too much information, stories, interviews, or top ten this or that?

I understand the power of simplicity and I feel you can too. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to narrow your focus to one word that could help you change your life!

OSR 041: Love Yourself Like Its All You Have Left, With Kamal Ravikant

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Mar 26, 2014


Operation Self Reset Episode 41: Love Yourself Like It’s All You Have Left
 

In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with author Kamal Ravikant.

Kamal grew up in New York and went off to college after high school, like so many other people do. After a year of college, he joined the Army and later joined the Reserves after finishing his time in the Army. He then finished college and then moved to California for the Silicon Valley “dot com boom.” He was in the middle of the boom and the fall out, seeing companies go big and go down. He started his own company that he self-funded until he ran out of money, then took investor money since the business was doing so well. Until one day, it wasn’t doing so well. The company went under and Kamal was left with a loss of his self-worth and large amounts of debt.

He spent weeks locked in his bedroom, unable to face the rest of the world and his failure. It would be so easy to stay in that place, wallowing in your own misery. But one day, Kamal decided he was done with that. He decided to turn his life around and create his own self-reset by loving himself. He turned these experiences into a book, Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It, which became a bestseller on Amazon. Kamal realized that loving himself would give him the happiness and success he wanted in life.

Maybe we haven’t all faced the same problems Kamal has, but his experiences can be inspirational for everyone, no matter what your situation is. In his own life, when Kamal was trying to decide whether to move out to California or not, a friend told him to “jump, and the net will appear.” He realized how true that was. If you take a risk, you’re probably not going to die from it. You might fail, but you can always pick yourself up and try something else instead. What is the worst case scenario that could happen from taking this risk? What would happen if you don’t take that risk?

MM #7: Organized Chaos

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Thu, Mar 20, 2014


It’s 4 a.m. Your smoke detector starts screaming to wake you up. You awake in a panic and the chaos starts. You jump out of bed, clear the house, and grab the family, the dogs, and your phone. You run outside and look back at your house starting to pump out smoke like a train engine coming into the station.
You dial 911 and you wait. You just sit there and hold your family and wait. Others pour out of their homes when the siren comes screaming from down the street.
The fire department comes on scene and flies out of the rig like angry hornets out of a jostled nest. They pull a large hose from the engine and stat running to your house. Next thing you know, more and more firefighters and pieces of apparatus appear on scene and all of them are running, breaking windows, laying ladders into your home, yelling at one another. Some crews go into your house, some climb the ladder to your roof, and some stand out front trying to make the right decisions to save your home.
You continue to stand there in shock at your house on fire but you think in the back of your head, this is chaos.
As a firefighter I understand these looks on people’s faces when we come on the scene of a house fire. To the average person it looks ridiculous, but to us it’s organized. Each member has a job to do and without one piece of the puzzle the whole building could go into flames.
We call this organized chaos.
Think of your life for a second. I know you have moments you feel like chaos has fallen upon you. You’re running here and running there. Your life is all over the place. So how do we slow down this chaos and remove it?
Sorry to say you can’t slow chaos down. Chaos is like a semi sliding down an icy road. You might think you are in control but you aren’t.
The only way to get a handle on chaos is to prioritize what needs to be done at any given second. If you prioritize your chaos, you will feel in control of the day.
How do we prioritize chaos?
1.     Focus on your basic needs first. You are not doing any good being hungry, thirsty, or having to go to the bathroom. Take care of yourself first.
2.     Take a minute and make a list of what needs to be done in the hectic day. Take that list and organize it to let yourself drive in a systematic order.
3.     Ask yourself if you really need to fit all of these chores into one day. Is it really worth your getting this wound up with your day? It’s not the end of the world if you don’t complete your list.

OSR 040: Act Your Way Towards Leadership Skills, With Tom Henschel

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Mar 19, 2014


Operation Self Reset Episode 40: Act Your Way Towards Leadership Skills, With Tom Henschel
In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with Tom Henschel from The Look and Sound of Leadership podcast.

Tom grew up in Illinois and decided as a child he wanted to be an actor. He went to the Julliard School of acting when it was still new, and got into acting. He worked as an actor for years and loved it. But when he turned forty, suddenly the jobs started drying up. He was having a hard time getting parts and was unable to support his family as he had been doing for years. He had a lot of support from his wife and family, but Tom wasn’t sure what his next career move should be.

Tom decided to go into teaching, which he had done before. He began teaching drama at a university. But it wasn’t long before he realized that his backup plan wasn’t what he wanted to do either. When he realized this, he began to panic. What do you do when your backup plan doesn’t work out?

Someone else mentioned the idea of corporate training to Tom. He wasn’t in the business world, so this idea had never occurred to him. He had always loved the fact that he didn’t work in a corporate environment, so he wasn’t sure at first that this job would be a good match for him either, but he decided to give it a try. He knew how to direct people and knew how to coach people to bring out charisma, so he used these skills he’d developed in acting to help businesspeople bring out the best in themselves.

Are you feeling stuck in your career path or other aspects of your life? Tom reminds us that even the wrong paths in life teach us valuable skills or new things about ourselves. It’s not about finding the right path the first time, it’s about learning and growing and turning yourself around again when things don’t work out.

MM #6: Quiet The Doubt Man

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Thu, Mar 13, 2014


The Doubt Man lives inside all of us. He stays quiet most of the time, just living there in our minds. The Doubt Man has a small control center with only a few buttons. He has a loudspeaker that he turns on when he has a suggestion or comment. That feeling in your gut when you question a decision—yes, he has a button for that.

Most importantly, he has only a small amount of power over your body.  You know that feeling when you want to do something but you keep pulling back—yes, that’s the Doubt Man.

One more thing: He hates big risk. Imagine your legs are sitting outside a small airplane. You are strapped to an experienced jumper. You look down and see your feet dangling with nothing below them. You look at the horizon and think, oh my, I am really doing this. That is when the Doubt Man pulls the emergency button. First he pushes the stomach button. Your gut starts turning, you become nauseous, and you want to puke, but you know you have not eaten in eight hours. Next he starts shouting into the speaker. Asking you questions: Why are you doing this? This airplane is perfect, why jump? You might die. Don’t, don’t, don’t do it, PLEASE. As a last ditch effort, he will try to lock up your body. He can see that your hands are holding onto the insides of the sliding hatch on the airplane. He will use his power to try to clamp your hands so you don’t jump.

So how do we get rid of him? We can’t. He will never leave, but there is a technique that does work. It’s self-talk. Self-talk is basically your inner voice, the voice in your mind which says things that you don’t necessarily say out loud. Often self-talk happens without your even realizing it and can be a subtle running commentary going on in the background of your mind. But what you say in your mind can determine a lot of how you feel about who you are.

The only proven way to quiet the Doubt Man is self-talk. When the Doubt Man starts pulling and pushing you in a certain way, that is when you start your self-talk. You need to say three things to start to quiet him down.

 

They are:

I can
I love myself
I want to do it

If you say those three things over and over you will start to quiet the Doubt Man. He will still be with you until the day you die so you have to understand him and find what works. As of now the only proven method is self-talk.

OSR 039: Workaholics Cure For Anxiety, Play It Away With Author Charlie Hoehn

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Mar 12, 2014


Operation Self Reset Episode 39: Workaholics Cure for Anxiety, Play It Away with Charlie Hoehn
In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking again with Charlie Hoehn author of the book Play It Away.

As we learned in episode 38, Charlie tried to get a nice job when he graduated from college. He applied to over a hundred companies, but the recession had hit and Charlie wasn’t having any luck getting that job he’d expected to find. One night, he decided that since he wasn’t getting paid anyway, he was only going to work on projects that he really loved. He reached out to successful business people online and offered to help them with their work for free. He began working with Tim Ferriss, author of The 4-Hour Work Week, during the launch of his new book The 4-Hour Body. Soon Charlie was working hard and really pushing himself. He wasn’t taking care of himself, was dealing with a lot of anxiety, and soon burned out.

Charlie felt like he shouldn’t complain because he was getting such an amazing opportunity, working on this book with Tim Ferriss, but he began to feel terrible. He had pushed himself so hard both physically and mentally, and it was beginning to show.  He started to develop anxiety and he needed a cure for anxiety.  He kept telling himself that he could do this, all he had to do was make it through a few months of work and he’d be done. But then one thing after another hit—the deadline was pushed back, a death, a crisis involving a friend—among the escalating exhaustion Charlie was already feeling.

Charlie realized that he couldn’t keep going on like this.  He needed a cure for anxiety.  Visits with his doctor weren’t helping with the anxiety ruling his life. It wasn’t until he read the book Play by Stuart Brown, M.D., that he realized he wasn’t letting himself play and enjoy life anymore. When Charlie started playing, his life changed and the people he spent his time with changed.

Operation Self Reset Episode 38: A New Way to Work with Charlie Hoehn
 

In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with Charlie Hoehn author of the book Play It Away.

When Charlie finished school, he tried to get a nice job and applied to over a hundred companies. But the recession had hit and Charlie wasn’t having any luck getting that job he’d expected to find. One night, he decided that since he wasn’t getting paid anyway, he was only going to work on projects that he really loved. So he took it upon himself to reach out to successful business people online to help them with their work for free, by doing things such as editing videos. The people took him up on the offer and soon Charlie was working hard and really pushing himself. But why would anyone work for free?

Instead of thinking “What’s in it for me?” Charlie recommends that we approach the idea with the mindset of “What can I offer to people I admire?” Along the way, as a bonus, you get to make connections with these successful businesspeople and build your skills and portfolio.

Don’t think that following this path and working for free means that you have to quit your job and abandon your commitments. You can do this even if you’re working in another job that you love. Do the work on the side and build your skills. Or maybe you’re stuck in a job you hate and dream of doing something else. Use this idea as an opportunity to learn new things and to get your foot into the door of possible new career path.

 
Here’s what Jake and Charlie talked about in this episode:

Why would anyone want to work for free?
Getting your foot in the door
Networking by working for freee

Working for free doesn’t have to be seen as a last resort, the only option left when you can’t get the job you really want. Look at it as an opportunity to better yourself by networking with people you can gain wisdom from and by creating works you can use to earn more opportunities in the future. Working for free isn’t something that most people think of when they go out to get a job, but it can open doors into opportunities you’ve dreamed of.

OSR MM #5: Grabbing Every Opportunity

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Thu, Mar 06, 2014


How will grabbing every opportunity help you change your life?  Grabbing every opportunity will allow more opportunity's come into your life.  Lots of people speak of not having the idea, that plan, or way of thinking.  If you are grabbing every opportunity that comes in your life you will have the chance to make your life that much better.

What is opportunity?

This is taken from Dictionary.com: Opportunity is a good position, chance, or prospect, as for advancement or success.

Opportunities come into our lives daily. Why don’t you grab them and make them yours?

 Are you afraid?
You are too lazy.
Your plate is too full.
It’s too much work.

 

What are your excuses? Opportunity is not granted for the blessed individuals. Opportunity has nothing to do with race, age, how you were raised, if you are smart or stupid, if you are an entrepreneur, or if you have or have not graduated from school.

Opportunity presents itself to everyone. The question I have for you is why don’t you take that opportunity that is in front of you and run with it?

If you feel you have had no opportunities in you life, let me open your eyes. Chances are you played some sport or activity growing up. Someone passed you the ball, gave you a shot, or allowed you to perform in front of a large stage. What did you do when you were in that position? Most likely you passed that ball off, moved out of position, or froze. You were given an opportunity but you did not choose to do anything with it.

Lucky for you, new opportunities present themselves all the time. Next time when that idea, suggestion, or creative plan comes into your mind, grab it and take action on it.

Opportunities are not for the ones granted to become successful; they are for normal people like you and me. The only difference is that the successful people took action and did something with the opportunities that came into their lives.

OSR 037: Six Fingers To Your Reset

Operation Self Reset Episode 37: Six Fingers to Your Reset

In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking about how to create your own self reset for a better you.

When we think about about a self reset, often times we might think about changing who we are. We all have positive and negative things about ourselves. We all have things we want to change. But do we really need or want to become an entirely different person? What’s wrong with being who we really are?

Some people may look like they have the perfect life, but honestly, no one has everything together! They’ve just constructed the perfect image to show the world, but behind the mask they have cracks in their life just like everyone else. No one is perfect and no one expects you to be either.

As Jake tells us, you don’t need to completely change yourself when things are going wrong, you just need to press the reset button! But figuring out how to press that reset button can be confusing at times. How do you even begin that reset process? What small differences should you make in order to create a better you? In this episode, Jake gives us six tips to help us get started on our own self resets.

Wed, Feb 26, 2014


 

In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with motivational speaker Coach Alex.

Alex knew at age eleven that he wanted to be a motivational speaker, but he put that desire on the back burner and became a swim coach instead. One day, he realized it wasn’t really what he wanted to do. He loved being around people and coaching them, but he wanted to take the swim team part out of it. The idea of being a motivational speaker kept coming back to him and so he had to follow his passion.

The journey from a swim coach to a motivational speaker wasn’t easy. Of course, friends aren’t always as encouraging when you say you want to be a motivational speaker over more “normal” career paths, but Alex knew he had to follow his dream. Changing your path in life can help you learn who your real friends are and introduce you to new people who have a great impact on your life.

Everyone wants to make changes in their lives, whether it’s your job or losing weight or finding your perfect match. But so many of us try and fail over and over again. Why? Alex tells us that to really change, we have to change ourselves from the inside. It’s not enough to say that you want to make this change in your life—you need to know the real reason why you want to change. That will be the best motivation you can find to make a big impact in your life.

OSR 035: The Art Of Communication, With Jordan Harbinger

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Feb 19, 2014


Operation Self Reset Episode 35: The Art of Charm
In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with Jordan Harbinger from The Art of Charm.

The Art of Charm has this philosophy: “If you want to get the girl you like, then you need to become a better man.” That’s what Jordan and his friend AJ want to do, turn guys into better men. You are a product of your knowledge. The way you act around others in any situation, dating or networking, depends on whether you know how to be confident and outgoing. Jordan was like the average guy, a little intimidated in certain situations and unsure how to project confidence. He decided to learn networking skills by studying how other people did it. This meant befriending outgoing guys that other people enjoyed being around and watching their behavior carefully. Through this studying, Jordan figured out how to work networking events to his advantage. Most people think of networking as, “What can you do for me?” Jordan approaches the situation with the mindset of, “What can I do for you that might help me later?” If he meets someone who doesn’t offer services that he can use now, he takes advantage of the opportunity to introduce them to others who have something they need. This raises Jordan’s standing in their minds and strengthens his connections with other people. Later on, when that person has something Jordan can use, his name will be the first one that pops into their head just because he helped them.

When you hook someone up with something they need or haven’t been able to get on their own, they become eternally grateful. Jordan and his friend AJ realized this when they started introducing guys they knew to girls they were hanging out with. It became like a game, seeing how much they could help people get things they were too timid to get on their own or didn’t know where to start. The whole business of The Art of Charm was founded on this idea of helping other people. The more you put out into the universe, the more you get back in return.

So how does The Art of Charm help guys? It breaks down their habits and behaviors in social situations to examine them and show them how to improve. Jordan and AJ teach guys how to have charisma and confidence in even stressful situations. Why would a funny, laid back guy need coaching to be charismatic? Even the people who are the best at what they do—professional athletes, A-list celebrities—have coaches. They have an entire team of people who help them be the best they can be and teach them how to do what they do. Why wouldn’t that same strategy work for the rest of us? And it’s not just about dating and meeting women. The skills Jordan and AJ teach can be applied to work, friendship, and more.

OSR 034: Positive Thinking With Aaron Kennard

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Feb 12, 2014


Operation Self Reset Episode 34: Positive Thinking
In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with Aaron Kennard from Boulder, Colorado, from the website TrulyAmazingLife.com.

Aaron, a father of four, helps people live the lives they dream of. He was working full-time, but wasn’t being fulfilled by his work, so he spent his downtime focused on his family and his hobbies to find the happiness he wanted. A sore throat that wouldn’t go away led to him realizing that he was in charge of his life and his happiness. He did this by focusing on the things he was grateful for each day rather than the pain.

Aaron turned this experience with positive thinking into a poster he now calls “The 12 Pillars of a Truly Amazing Life.” He uses these pillars as a roadmap to finding the life you really want, and he began selling these posters to anyone who wanted one for their own inspiration.

After the birth of his fourth daughter, Aaron began experiencing the effects of an autoimmune disease. Rather than giving into the intense pain his body was going through, he was determined to turn this experience into a test of his belief in a truly amazing life. Holding onto this belief that things would turn out for the good, Aaron experienced moments of extreme joy and happiness even through the darkest times and the worst pain. He fought hard for the happy life he wanted and that he knew was possible. He then turned his pain and happiness into a book, The Positive Thinking Secret.

Through positive thinking, you can control how happy you can be in your life, despite the obstacles that might come up along your path. Aaron’s story reminds us that we can be happy and positive even during the lowest moments. Surround yourself by positivity and embrace the good to help you get through the bad.

Motivational Minute: Why Not Me
This was taken from nypost.com

“We believed we would get here. At the beginning of the season I told our guys, ‘Hey, why not us?’ ”

Then he talked about what his late father had always told him.

“He used to always tell me ‘Russ, why not you?’ And what that meant was believe in yourself, believe in the talent God has given you even though you are 5-foot-11, and you can go a long ways. That’s why I decided to play football, and I wanted to go against the odds a little bit.”

Too often we are told you cant.  Your not smart enough, big enough, strong enough, rich enough, and personable enough.  Who says you are not any of those things.

Why Not Me, Why Not You.  You can, you will, you will become.

OSR 033: Find Your Flourishing Life With Gail Brenner

Wed, Feb 05, 2014


Operation Self Reset Episode 33: Find Your Flourishing Life
In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with Gail Brenner from AFlourishingLife.com.

Gail, a licensed therapist, spent years trying to find what could make her really happy. She lived with anxiety and an inner sense of agitation, as well as worries about the future. After living in this rut of unhappiness for so long, Gail eventually turned to some of the teachings of Buddhism that made her realize happiness was possible. She used this mindset along with meditation to help get out of the overwhelming anxiety that was taking over her life.

Many of us have a problem with letting negative thoughts about ourselves, our abilities, and our lives take over and stop us from finding happiness. Gail explains how these ridiculous negative thoughts we have aren’t true and are only limitations set by our own minds. Push past these negative thoughts to become the greatest self you can be! Your flourishing life is out there, you just have to be brave enough to find it.

So many people out there want to figure out what their life calling is. But is this question really what we should be asking ourselves? Is it possible that the search for a “life calling” can actually lead us to more negative emotions? We can become so obsessed with trying to determine what our life calling might be that we don’t realize what makes us happy right now, in this moment. When we let life unfold in a way that feels natural and good to us, we can find the happiness.

What is stopping you from being happy right now? Gail reminds us that it is absolutely possible to be happy in any moment of our lives, as long as we understand and face the obstacles in our way. Wherever you are in life, if you’re not truly happy, maybe it’s time to press pause, reflect on the current situation, and then hit the reset button to find your way to a beautiful, flourishing life.

OSR 032: Uncover Your Entrepreneur

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jan 29, 2014


Operation Self Reset Episode 32 – Uncover Your Entrepreneur
On this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is helping us uncover that hidden entrepreneur inside of ourselves. We know what you’re thinking: I’m not an entrepreneur! Yes, you are!

Everyone has an entrepreneur inside just waiting to get out. But what if I’m not an inventor? What if I don’t want to start my own business? You still have that entrepreneur spirit inside you. It may be buried deep within because of the rules and expectations you’ve conformed to in life, but you can find a way to release the inner entrepreneur. Approach every situation in your life with an entrepreneur frame of mind. How? Think outside the box. Have the courage to do things differently than the expected method. It doesn’t matter what the situation is: filing paperwork for your job, washing your laundry, organizing your kitchen cabinets, whatever! Change one thing in your everyday routine and open yourself up to new ideas.

Maybe you want to approach your boss about a raise or different working hours. Maybe you have a great idea and you just need to present it to the right people, but the idea of putting yourself out there terrifies you. People—hosts of popular shows, your boss, whoever—they’re all just human beings, like you. Don’t be afraid to take a chance and ask for their time or for something you want. Take time to invest in the new you. It may not be immediate, but if you keep putting yourself out there you can find success.

Entrepreneurs are ordinary people who decided to see the world in an extraordinary way. No matter what your lifestyle is, what your job may be, or what obstacles stand in the way of what you want to do, keep pushing toward something new and different. Think of ways you can do ordinary things differently. Expand your idea of normal and don’t be confined by rules—or even brules, as Jake mentions. You never know when the smallest change will lead to something big later on!

OSR 31: Quit Your Job With Dan Perry, From Handyman Startup

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Wed, Jan 22, 2014


Operation Self Reset Podcast Episode 31: Quit Your Job
In this episode of the Operation Self Reset podcast, Jake is talking with Dan Perry of Handyman Startup about failure and success.

All of us have failed at one thing in our lives. Maybe many things, but at least one. As Jake reminds us, failures don’t have to be huge, life-changing ones. We face small failures every day. So when a failure sets you back, why give up? Pick yourself up, keep failing, and move on!

In his interview with Jake, Dan tells us how his life started out on the typical path that everyone else told him would lead to success. But once he was in college, he realized he had no idea what he really wanted to do with his life. After changing majors, he graduated and then went out into the world to start on the road he thought would bring him happiness. If this was what life was supposed to be, why was it that the job Dan had worked so hard in college for didn’t turn make him happy? Once he realized this was not what he wanted to do, he made the huge decision to quit his job—without a backup plan. Talk about a major leap of faith! Two years later, he’s now running his own business, running a blog about how to start a handyman business, and has found some happiness in his life.

One of the biggest obstacles new entrepreneurs face is determining prices for their services or products. Talking about money makes almost everyone uncomfortable. Charge too much, people may laugh; too little, you’re cheating yourself. How do you gain the confidence to put a value on how much you’re worth? Dan gives great advice on learning your own worth and putting yourself out there in front of customers and colleagues. If you’re feeling stuck or unhappy in your current job, listen in to Dan’s experiences and use his advice to figure out what would lead you to a happier life.

Think you can’t take the huge leap of faith that Dan did? If you can’t make big changes, Jake reminds us that even little ones can turn your life around.

In this episode Jake reviews the year 2013, including the launch of Operation Self Reset, and discusses getting over self-doubt and a lack of motivation.  After talking about his own personal experiences, Jake goes on to outline four key tips for making 2014 the best year possible.

 

Losing steam?

 

It’s always important to remember that the only person who is holding you back is yourself.  This applies to everything: diet, job, personal goals, relationships, anything and everything.  That is the very reason we are starting the reset revolution, but even Jake at OSR has had his difficulties!

 

In 2013, Jake launched the podcast Operation Self Reset, and was filled with the initial excitement of pursuing his dream of becoming a motivational speaker.  This was further fueled by public interest in July, when he interviewed a Navy Seal for the podcast.  Despite this initial momentum, by the time autumn rolled around Jake was feeling pulled in other directions, both from his job and at home.  He began to lose steam and passion for the podcast, and ultimately felt stuck in a rut.

 

Why is this important for listeners?  Because it’s important to realize that this happens to everybody!  Even a motivational speaker has ups and downs, and can experience doubt or a lack of confidence.  Ultimately Jake realized he was doing this podcast for his audience, not for himself, and that realization helped push him forward.

 

It’s important not to let the low moments get you down.  The key is to find out what the problem is, and to find a way to solve it.  As we all know, new year’s resolutions come and go.  At the recording of this podcast, it’s been only 13 days since the new year and some people may already be falling from the wagon.  But that’s okay!  Here are Jake’s tips to make 2014 your best year possible, and make sure to listen to the podcast for more details on each tip.

 

Tips to make 2014 the best year possible.

 

1. Love yourself.

When you truly love yourself, you’ll be able to see positive change.

 

2. Take your values to the next level.

What are your values?  Take them to the next level.  If you value your body or your mind, give them the proper nourishment to improve.  If you value your family, start talking and listening to them more.

 

 3. Change your thoughts and beliefs. 

Once you start changing your thoughts, your beliefs will start to change.  And once your beliefs start to change, your words are going to change. You’re going to change “I never” to “I will.” And your actions will also change!  You’ll start smiling more.  And those actions will lead to habits, and then you’re really going to see a change in outcome.  You’ll be tackling things on your bucket list that you never thought you would!

 

4. Change your approach.

Success leaves breadcrumbs.  There is no magic formula or easy button.  Identify the things that worked for someone else, and apply that to your own life.  If you want to change, you need to change your approach.  Find the people that inspire you.  Also, surround yourself with successful people, whether they lost the weight you want to lose, or handled their debt, etc. Surround yourself with people who did what you aim to do.

 

Today’s topic for inspiration is: You are worthy.

 

You are worthy and capable of achieving whatever you want in your life.  The only thing holding you back is yourself.  Believe in yourself.  If you want to open a bakery, you are worthy.  If you want to start a painting business, you are worthy.  Anything you want to do, know that you are capable of doing it, and you are worthy of that success.  Worthiness is within all of us.

 

Before you go…

OSR 029: Positive Thinking with Taylor Lapidus

Positive Thinking!

I was on Google and randomly came across Think Positive Apparel online.  I clicked on the website and I was amazed at not only the design but the idea of having positive thoughts incorporated onto shirts. Think Positive Apparel creates interactive designs built out of tiny, positive affirmations and philosophies. Each of the designs encourages people to know what's possible and to watch their thoughts. Think Positive Apparel believes that attitude is everything and as such being aware of our attitudes is powerful.  When you look into a Think Positive Apparel design whatever words jump out at you become your superpowers (aka mantras) for the day. We encourage you to bring more mindfulness to whatever you read as you move through your day and see what happens!

As you may or may not know I am positive guy. I understand the power of positive thoughts, actions, and words. When I saw this company I knew I had to get them on the Operation Self Reset Podcast.

I sat down with Taylor to talk about his company and mindset, to find out why he started a clothing company. Taylor has a great story on how he became interested in thinking positive. What really started Taylor in that direction was a movie called “What the Bleep Do We Know?” I have not seen the whole movie but many of the listeners have heard of it before.

That movie sparked an idea. He decided to look into making positive clothing that you can wear. Since then Think Positive Apparel has been trying to spread the good word of staying positive and wearing positive words.

Taylor and I talk about big ideas related to becoming and staying positive.  He has one tip for people looking to make a difference when it comes to making a RESET on their own lives. Taylor suggest Zen meditation is a big component when it comes to transforming your life.

Zen meditation is used to quiet your mind. You can use this breathing technique to replace your internal negative chatter, fears, or anything holding you back. I have not tried this but Taylor suggests it to anyone who is part of the OSR community.

I understand the power of positivity. If you are able to have something that reminds you day in and out to continue to believe in yourself then you can truly become your personal best.

Think Positive Apparel has a 10% code for members of the Operation Self Reset Community. The coupon code is: SELF RESET. Put that code into the coupon area at checkout.

OSR 028: Eating Raw Could Change Your Life With Brad Gruno

Eating Raw Could Change Your Life, with Brad Gruno
 

 

Eating raw and Living raw is not easy to do. When I say “living raw,” I mean doing what you need to do to find success.  When I say “ Eating raw” I mean literally eating nothing but fruit, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. I sat down with Brad from Brad’s Raw Foods. I heard about Brad and his business from a friend who told me I had to track him down. I am so glad I did. I have never met a person as enthused, passionate, and excited to share his new way of eating raw and living the raw life.

 

Brad has truly performed a Reset to his business and personal life.  Brad had a very successful company but when the market turned he lost everything. Not only did Brad lose his money and the company, that he built, but most importantly he lost control of his health in the process.  Brad was living the high life, eating out all the time and drinking wine or liquor almost daily. He lost track of his health because he “had it all.” When his company was shut down he went back connecting with his family and friends.  With no money in his pockets, 40 pounds overweight, and a list of illnesses that needed to be treated he found a reset in eating raw.

 

Lucky for Brad, his family got him back on track to becoming physically fit. Brad understood that if he could become physically healthy his brain would become healthy and it could potentially help him find his new endeavor in life. The timing was perfect and Brad was able to lose weight, get healthy, and along the way he learned a lot about eating raw.

 

Brad never knew that at one of the worst times in his life he would be able to find a new business just waiting for him. I asked Brad if he believes that things happen for a reason. Without a pause he said, “You bet I do!” It’s amazing in our lives how we are unable to see the outcome of certain things that happen. At the time we think it’s the worst thing possible but actually it’s one of the best things that could have happened.

 

Brad truly has become an advocate of eating raw. That is why he started his company, Brads Raw Foods.   Brad started with small batches, selling at local farmers markets, and now selling them across the States.

 

This podcast is not meant to make start eating raw. That is up to you to decide. Brad has found his Reset in life by his secret sauce, eating raw. I want you to hear how he did it so you can take the information and apply certain parts into your own life. Eating raw and living raw is more than food; it’s a way of living.

OSR 027: Simple Healthy Habits Makes Huge Results

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Mon, Dec 16, 2013


Small changes makes huge results with healthy habits.
With Christmas, New Year’s Eve and Day, and with the new year approaching, I thoughts it’s about time I have on someone to help us restart our healthy habits.  Healthy habits is more than just eating better or working out.  Healthy Habits is all about making small changes for BIG results.

I have known Jordan Ponder for over 10 years. During those years he has been in the natural bodybuilding circuit.  Year after year he has increased his size, rankings, and determination to take first in event after event.  Jordan is a very serious man when it comes to bodybuilding and keeping focused making healthy habits apart of his life daily.

 

How does bodybuilding relate to Operation Self Reset? The real reason why I invited Jordan Ponder to the OSR podcast is so he can spread his philosophy on changing and implementing healthy habits into our lives. He has one of the best outlooks on health and fitness of any magazine, book, or website I have come across. Jordan’s big idea focuses on creating healthy habits so that small changes can make huge results. This conversation is not about how to diet, how to work out, or how to look good in a swimsuit for the summer of 2014. Jordan shares practical and easy steps to help you reach your goal of overall health.  If you are looking for a how to loose weight or what should I eat guide I suggest you look online.  The best tip Jordan shares is simple, easy, and not that hard to do.  All you have to do is start making healthy habits right now.  That is it one step.

 

During the interview we have a great conversation about starting, creating, and sticking to healthy habits.  The big question I had for Jordan is how does one pass up the cravings of sweets? I personally work out daily and live a healthy lifestyle but like anyone else, I get sidelined a few too many times with sweets. He shares a simple and practical way to bypass these cravings its falling back onto his philosophy of healthy habits. His answer is that he prepares for them. Yes, it’s as simple as that. If you fail to prepare you prepare to fail. That is the honest truth. Jordan suggests that if you know around 4 p.m. each day you NEED something sweet, just have something prepared. Jordan Ponder has a teaspoon of almond butter to hold him over or Greek yogurt with sugar-free Jello.

You have to listen to this podcast. This episode is not about diets, organic vs. non-organic, how to work out, calorie intake, protein intake, or any other hot topics when it comes to fitness and health. Jordan suggests small changes that will produce huge results.

 
Points we hit:
How to stay focused with your fitness goals.

Enjoy the holiday food without regrets.

S.M.A.R.T goals.

How to rate your health, fitness, and lifestyle.

Small consistent changes make huge results.

List what your variables are.

Just do something different to your health.

No huge leap or huge difference.

No diets; it’s a lifestyle.

You only diet because you are going to get it back.

Principles related to your lifelong diet.

Don’t fall off the bandwagon of your; diet just take a step out.

Enjoy the food your family made for you.

Cheat meal, something that makes you feel good, something to look forward to.

Pass that vending machine and replace it with something that makes you sideline that craving.

Look at your calendar and make a commitment to work out.

OSR 026: Personal Change Comes At A Cost

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Mon, Dec 09, 2013


 

Change is not easy. That is what I found out, especially if you want to go public with your ideas. I started OSR with the idea of helping others while I help myself. But I soon found out that along the way there are going to be more than just personal changes within. I realize that any time you start to step outside your box people will jump all over you.
 

You may or may not have heard this theory, but you are the average of the five closest people around you. You talk to those people about the same things, you have the same hobbies, you make the same wages, and your materialistic things are mostly the same, such as your car, house, or style of clothes. If you take a second and stop to think about it you’ll realize that it is very true. I thought of this many times. I truly fit that to a “T.” I enjoy my friends, we watch Packer games, we go to restaurants we all enjoy, and we laugh at the same type of humor.

 

When you start to personally change for the better does that go over well with the people who are in this average with you? Let me break down the three types of people that may or may not care about your personal change.

 

 

The three types of people are:

Supportive
Jealous
Just don’t care

 

Supportive – You are always going to have a few people stand behind you on anything you want to do in life. Mostly it will be family and a few friends (until you realize they are just saying they are supportive and you find out later they are jealous.)

 

Supportive people are the ones you need to focus on when you encounter a change within your new life. Examples of change would be getting out of a bad relationship, changing jobs, following your passion or goals that don’t seem ideal to everyone else, losing lots of weight, or making spiritual and mental change. You will realize over time that this group of supportive people will become your rock.

 

My personal supportive people are my family. I have never been more in love with my family until now. Since I started this project my family has been behind me 100% of the time. They have given me needed space and time to do the podcast and other things relating to this project.

 

The only downfall with supportive people is that they are not going to give you 100% honest feedback. They will always give you encouragement without suggesting ways to improve.

 

Don’t care people – It’s as simple as that they don’t care if you change, stay the same, decide to move, or decide to stay; they are just people in passing. These are the kinds of people that just don’t really care about the outcome of your own life. They might have so much going on in their own lives that their issues are all they care about.

 

Jealous people – We all know this type of people. We have them as our friends, co-workers, and even family. Most of the time we know who they are, but sometimes they are undercover.

 

The best way for me to break this down is to give you a very personal story about one of my friends. I was good friends with this guy named Joe. Joe and I would work out daily, play sports together, watch games and movies together, and travel together.  We were known as best friends. As the years passed I started to do some personal soul searching and figuring out my next steps in my life plan. During my searching I did not share the things I learned about myself, inventions or ideas running through my head, or even things I purchased. I don’t know why I held this in but I felt that Joe would not understand, so I just kept him out of the loop. Time passed. I had my child and Joe and I really started to separate. Joe and I just did not have the same common ground we had once had. We both realized that was OK and kept on doing our own thing. It wasn’t until I started Operation Self Reset that things really took a step toward the worst....

OSR 25: Follow Your Funny, With Caleb Bacon

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!

Follow Your Funny, With Caleb Bacon
Today I talk with Caleb Bacon. Caleb and I sit down and talk about his life and all that it entails. I bring up a great point before sharing anything about Caleb’s life or journey.

When I first met with Caleb it was only a few emails. We didn't share anything intimate, deep, or personally challenging. Our emails were light-hearted. Our emails turned into Skype calls where I interviewed him for the OSR podcast.

After listening to the journey of his life it opened up my world to the stories we have within. Each and every one of us has a story to share. Some are funny and others are not, but we can all learn from them.

When we grow up we go to school to master a subject or degree. The thing that struck me was the concept of mastering life. As humans, we are not able to master life but we can learn from it. I understand we can become better in life in two ways.  First we can personally learn from our successes or failures. Second we can hear stories from others and decide to learn from them or not.

That is really it: two main ways to get better at life. That is why I believe we all need to open up more and talk to others. Get to know the people who surround us. We all have great or sad stories to share. Share them because we can all learn from them.

Caleb shares very personal stories about his own life. He shares with us how he became very close to destroying his work and his social life. Opening up to the world on a podcast is not easy but Caleb understands the power of stories and how telling others how he overcame his own personal difficulties he became better because of it.

After I got over being drunk I started to focus on my life. I was feeling good and used my creative mind to help me focus. I asked myself for some ideas I could do to fill my time. I decided to start blogging, podcasting, and just doing some really fun and exciting things.

Life is not easy but hearing it from others will help all of us master the subject of life.

If you want to hear a life story of a man who traveled from coast to coast, went through a self reset, and loves life, you have to hear this interview with Caleb Bacon.

Caleb Bacon hosts a podcast called Man School. Man School Show (TM) is life from men who have lived it. The podcast is dedicated to men’s interesting, exciting, and difficult personal experiences. It’s information, inspiration, and a good time. The show is for guys who want to become better men but hate boring how-tos, forced advice, and so-called experts. It’s an approach that has greatly helped the life of host, Caleb Bacon.

OSR 024: Subconscious Mind With Author Sonja Lewis, The Blindsided Prophet

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Mon, Nov 25, 2013


Subconscious Mind With Sonja Lewis
I get to talk with author Sonja Lewis about her newest book, “The Blindsided Prophet.” This book explores man’s relationship with God and its effect on daily living. The novel examines beliefs and values at the deepest level, as well as how they shape our thoughts, ideas, and experiences.

I sit and talk with Sonja about all aspects of life. One topic we really hit on is about the subconscious mind. We all understand its power but do we know how to relate it to our daily life? We chat about how we both use and understand the subconscious mind to help us in our daily lives.

Subconscious mind is a tool that, once harnessed, can be very powerful. It might seem like a deep subject for people who do not understand it. The definition of the subconscious mind is identified in Wikipedia.com as “the part of consciousness that is not currently in focal awareness. The word subconscious is an anglicized version of the French subconscient as coined by the psychologist Pierre Janet, who argued that underneath the layers of critical thought functions of the conscious mind lay a powerful awareness that he called the subconscious mind. Because there is a limit to the information that can be held in conscious focal awareness, a storehouse of one's knowledge and prior experience is needed; this is the subconscious.”

Sonja Lewis has a craving for delving deeper into how we live our lives. She shares a very personal story about family life. Sonja was raised in the south where families are typically very large. Sonja has a sister who did not want children. She became difficult to talk to, very defensive, and didn’t want to talk about it. Sonja identifies the difficulties of dealing with normal society and how to understand, learn, and separate yourself from ideas that seem natural but are sometimes not. This is a topic that Sonja hit on during her travels, writing, and understanding of herself. This is a very powerful conversation that we had on the Operation Self Reset Podcast.

This is Sonja Lewis’s second book. I highly suggest you take a listen because she is a very interesting and down-to-earth person.

- Free range with fiction.
- “The Barrenness” – childfree or childless.
- Deep South big families.
- Sister with no kids felt unhappy and trapped. It made her a difficult person to deal with. I don’t want that for girls to come.
- “Blindsided Prophet”
- Moved by and big fan of James Baldwin.
- You write to change the world. If you alter the world even a millimeter you have accomplished something.
- What drives you at a deeper level?
- So many times we get trapped into negative thinking.
- Staying at that job we really don’t like.
- I am stuck!
- Challenge, we have the power to change that.
- Thinking of thinking as a communication skill.
- The power of the subconscious mind.
- How to tap into the subconscious mind.
- We find ourselves acting like monsters within our subconscious minds.
- We don’t have to be the victims!
- How do we remove negative chatter?
- Life is a journey.
- You have a choice.
- It’s all about how you perceive life.
- Open up and just talk about it.
- Be confident about who you are.
- Have a willingness to accept your life.

OSR 023: Qualities of A Leader With Bryan Franklin

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Mon, Nov 18, 2013


Qualities of A Leader With Bryan Franklin
Bryan has coached top-level executives at Fortune 1000 companies (including Apple, Logitech, Google, Cisco and LinkedIn) and helped entrepreneurs build their fledgling organizations into success.  Bryan has helped entrepreneurs, CEOs, and founders of companies learn and understand the key qualities of a leader.  Leadership starts from within and reflects out toward your goal.

Together with his partner in business and in life, Jennifer, he now offers some of the most impactful group experiences available on the planet. These group intensives train entrepreneurs to free themselves financially and spiritually — to transform the way they see themselves and the world, so that the distinction between "career" and "life" dissolves and each human interaction can be both lucrative and fulfilling of purpose.

 

I was able to get into contact with Bryan Franklin after I saw his TedX talk.  The title of his speech was “The Most Dangerous Question on Earth.”  I found the title intriguing and knew I had to get him on the podcast.  Here is the video below.

In the podcast I talk with Bryan about leadership more than anything.  Bryan has been around the most successful people in the world.  But we keep on coming back to the subject of understanding the qualities of a leader.

 

Qualities of a leader start with understanding fears.  Yes, fears.  The number one fears of the most successful people in the world are things they don’t know.  Yes, profound, right!  The thing you don’t know can or could affect your family, job, company, lifestyle, or pretty much anything.    The key is to discover it and make sure you are solving that problem.   According to Bryan, too many times we are solving problems that are not the real problem.  We need to identify the real issues that surround us and figure out a game plan to solve them.

 

Bryan also shares ways you, yes you, can become a leader and get promoted faster just by doing the right things.  We discuss the difference between brown-nosing and achieving company goals.

-How to impress the right people within your company to move up in your position.

-How to get your coworkers on your team to reach common goals within the company.

-How to stay friends with your coworkers when you get promoted.

 

Bryan Franklin shares some great ideas about work, qualities of a leader, and how we can become the best when it comes to our jobs.

OSR 022: My Secret Weapon

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Mon, Nov 11, 2013


My Secret Weapon
 

In today’s society we are all looking for that little extra.  No matter if we want to read faster, become stronger, or just improve our looks, we are all looking for that secret sauce.

 

Well, personally, I think I found it.  I was preparing a communications speech that I was to give to 25 people.  At first I was going to go over the basics of communication but I knew there was more to it than just talking.  I looked back at one of my podcasts on public speaking with Richard Brundage.  Richard shared some really good tips when it came to speaking and communications.  He told me that communication starts as soon as we get in front of people.  Research has shown that it takes an average of three to seven seconds for someone to like or dislike you.  WOW, only three to seven seconds.  You might be thinking, Well then, I must dress well and comb my hair.  It’s more than that; it’s actually our non-verbals that allow others to like or dislike us.  When you become 30 years old you are able to decode over 3,000 body language signals.  Yes, 3,000!  We can decode someone without even knowing it.

 

Richard gave some really good insight. Then I came across a question online that threw me off.  It said, “Do you believe your body controls your mind?”  Hmm, I already know the power of the mind.  Our minds can control the outcomes of our lives; all we have to do is focus and we can all reap the benefits of the power of the mind.  When I heard that our bodies can control our minds I was intrigued.  I did some more research and came across a Ted Talk.  The woman who spoke was Amy Cuddy.

 

Ms. Cuddy is a Harvard Business School professor and she did a study on the subject of power positions.  I started listening to her Ted Talk and was further intrigued.  She gave examples of animals in the jungle and then she talked about her own personal studies she did on her students.  The results were so powerful I had to include them into my communication speech.

 

In this podcast I talk about the study Amy Cuddy did and how I benefited from it.  I had a promotional exam where I used some of the ideas she stated in the Ted Talk.  When I posed in a power position before going into my interview I felt focused, sharp, not nervous, excited, enthusiastic, and most of all I felt confident with my answers.  After getting out of the interview I felt amazing.  I can’t describe the positive vibe I felt.

 

I learned the benefits from Amy Cuddy’s methods and I put them into action.  If you have a few minutes, please watch this Ted Talk with Amy Cuddy.   It is well worth your time!

OSR 021: How To Prepare For A Test

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Tue, Nov 05, 2013


In this session you will discover:
I am back and better than ever. I want to talk to you about me for one second. As you know I have not been around for about one month. That was due to my reaching my goal, finding myself, and refocusing. I want to tell you how to prepare for a test.

To become the best person you can be every single day you must find and have goals. I always have a calendar in front of me with my daily objectives, weekly goals, monthly goals, and yearly goals. Why do I do that? In podcast #14 I talk about tips that have helped me transform my life. I explain why, so if you have a chance I suggest you listen to it.

In that podcast I talk about setting goals. Why set goals, you ask? Goals give your life direction when you feel there is none. Without goals you live only day by day. Your life will fly by and you won’t have attempted anything. I will write a separate blog post on that.

The real reason why I have been gone is because of a job interview. This interview was more than just a promotion; it was to help my goal of becoming a motivational speaker. I have finally figured out my goal, and to help achieve it I must complete certain things. One of them was to get promoted. I accomplished half of this goal by taking the test and going to the interview. I have not seen the results just yet. I should find out how I did in mid-December.

I also discovered why I am doing Operation Self Reset. This is truly my passion. I love it so much. Sometimes to get reinvested back into something you love you must take a step away to appreciate where you have come from.

In this podcast #21 I talk about my personal searching and the interview process. I want to share what I have learned, not only about the human body, but about how I handled myself, what worked and what didn’t work.

This podcast is not all about me; it’s about how we can all help one another. I hope my tips will help you achieve your goals of whatever they are.

Remember your mind controls your decisions, your decisions control your body, and your body controls the outcomes of your life. Think about it for a second. It’s so true your exterior of your body reflects what is going on in the inside. Harness your mind to reflect the outcome of your life.
How to study like a pro
- Tips to keep you focused on your material

- When to take breaks

- Why do I need to stretch?

- How to stop being distracted

- How long should I study for?

- Why feeling guilty is a good thing

- Does visualization really work?

In podcast 22 I talk about how to dominate a job interview.

OSR 019: Command and Control: How A Nuclear Weapon Explosion Changed One Mans Life

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Fri, Oct 04, 2013


In this session you’ll discover:

Imagine a massive explosion, a concussion of flames, concrete, and steel, hurling you across the asphalt on your back. You think my life is over! Then you stop sliding, only to hear two screams to RUNNN! But when you look, NO ONE IS THERE! You get five steps away from where you're lying and then a massive chunk of concrete lands behind you, shattering your ankle and severing your Achilles tendon.
 
This happened to Greg Devlin on September 18, 1980, at about 6:30 p.m. when an airman conducting maintenance on the Titan II missile dropped a socket. It fell about eighty feet before hitting and piercing the skin on the rocket’s first-stage fuel tank, causing it to leak. Greg was sent in to try to secure the leak but his life changed that night.
 
The Titan II missile was capable of delivering a 9-megaton nuclear warhead to targets more than 6,300 miles away in about 30 minutes.  The United States of America had 54 of these missiles armed and ready to launch in a moment’s notice. 
 
I speak with Greg about:
 
The Titan II explosion and his personal story
Guardian angels
How to become positive and how to stay positive
Understanding why things happen for a reason
How to capitalize on your second chance in life
Greg’s new project, Neon Tiki Tribe, a dyslexic-friendly children's book series for boys and girls with great moral stories packed with fun, action, and excitement. www.NeonTikiTribe.com

[spoiler]You’re listening to Operation Self Reset with Jake Nawrocki. Today we’re resetting our financial future.

What is going on, resetters? Welcome back to the podcast. This is the one and only place to change the person you are right now to that person that you strive, you want, you crave to be. Welcome back. Thanks for the emails. Thanks for the support. Thank you for the reviews. If you guys haven’t done so already, make sure to slide on over to iTunes, subscribe to the podcast, and then also leave a review if you have a second cause I know your time is very, very valuable so I really do greatly appreciate you guys taking the time right now and listening to this amazing podcast. Love it, love it so much.

So today we’re going to talk about something that could be awkward for you depending on how you handle the situation. So I’m gonna lay out here a little scenario and we’ll see what you guys think about it. So you go out to dinner with friends. There’re three other couples: it’s you and your boyfriend, you and your wife, whatever. And you guys are hanging out, having a good time, eating, drinking, laughing, crying, hugging, high-fiving, whatever. You guys are just having a blast. So you and your significant other are eating normal-sized meals. Maybe you’re not getting the steak dinner or the lobster, but you’re eating traditional pasta while others are drinking ungodly amounts of liquor, ordering all the appetizers, buying the biggest steak, buying the freshest lobster, the catch of the day, whatever the market price of this or that, and the bill you know in your head is like, “Geez, that’s a lot of money for that steak but whatever.” So the bill comes. And who usually grabs the bill is the person that usually spends the most. So then that person grabs the bill. He goes, “Okay.” His mouth is still full because he has this 90-ounce porterhouse steak in front of him that he’s still trying to mow down, and he opens the bill and he goes, “Whoa! This got out of control.

OSR 016: Nature Timelapse With Shawn Reeder

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Fri, Aug 30, 2013


I came across Shawn Reeder a few months back.  When I stumbled over his video I was in awe.  It was amazing!  When you see his video I know you will have the same impression.

Nature is something that surrounds all of us.  At times we love it and other times we hate it.  I live in the upper Midwest so I don’t care for it come winter time.  I have been raised to respect and understand what Mother Earth can give to us.   It’s easy to forget about her until you need her for an outdoor party, nice vacation, or just wanting that vitamin D to keep your body staying healthy.

The reason why I contacted Shawn is because I see his passion and understanding of Earth through his work.  He shows the beauty of the sky, sunrise, sunset, mountains, clouds, and every other part of nature.  When I reached out to Shawn he was in another country shooting more of what the Earth has to offer.  He is a man on a mission to share the most remarkable moments with the world.

He came onto the podcasts to give us insight into how he enjoys nature and why he started what he did.  Nature found him a free trip.  The key to enjoying life is to enjoy what makes you happy.  From his work to his way of life you can tell Shawn loves what he does.

 
In this session you will learn:
-How to make nature your escape

-Why we need moments to let our minds run free

-How to absorb the power of nature

-How to enjoy the little things

-Why you should take adventures because you never know where you will end up

-How to enjoy what you are doing to enjoy your life

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Thu, Aug 22, 2013


Episode 15

Today we talk with Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income.  Pat has an amazing life journey.  He was fired from a job he loved and now has a very popular website and podcast that teaches people like you and me how to make money online.

He has inspired me to take action and start my own podcast.  He is an inspiration to me.  I ask him all about m

indset and how he lives his life.  One thing that separates Pat from other online teachers of making money on the web is that he is transparent.  I asked him how he became so transparent.  He said, “That is just the way I am.”  Every single month this guy puts how much money he makes online.  Crazy, right? Well not to Pat. He does not want to be a sneaky kind of guy.  The more open he is, the better he feels he can help people like me and you.

I am honored to have him on the podcast. I hope you enjoy.

 
Things we talk about:
 

Get out of your comfort zone

Have support from family and friends

Get into a mastermind group

Make your first blog or website

How we can relate to elephants

Consider all options that come into your life

How to put your foot in the pool and keep your job

Freelance your skills—it teaches you how to start a business

Use skills you have already

Avoid problems by being open

Be honest

Build trust in your audience and friends

Find help that you need

Who are you reaching your dreams for?

How to break up goals

Look at people who are above you

Have a work space so you can just work

How to be AWESOME!

[spoiler]You’re listening to Operation Self Reset with Jake Nawrocki.

What is going on, resetters? Welcome back to Operation Self Reset, the one and only place to change the person that you are right now to that person you strive to be. Maybe you want to be that guy that shows up on time. Maybe you want to be that guy that can talk to anybody in line. Whatever it is, we are going to try to transform your life in that direction. So today is a great podcast. We have Pat Flynn. He is from SmartPassiveIncome.com. I highly, highly suggest you guys go check him out. If you guys are interested in making money online—it’s funny because this is all about life transformation and I just talked about how you guys should be more confident talking to people in line and then I change right into Pat making money online. So totally two different streams, but I want to let you know that his name is Pat Flynn. He has a website about making money on the internet. That doesn’t mean that this is all about making money on the internet today. We’re still going to be talking about tips, strategies and tools that we can use to improve our own lives. It’s just funny to me. If you’re not laughing, then I’m sorry. So it’s just awkward for me then I guess because I’m laughing in a room by myself. But anyway, it’s not about me. It’s about changing your life. So here we go.

I want to say first off thanks again for you guys sending me all the emails. You guys love the tips. The one recurring email I get time and time again and I’m loving it—it’s hilarious—is you guys having issues of not hitting the snooze button. Oh, my gosh, people have been cursing me out saying, “Why did you challenge me on this? This is horrible. It’s my first day not hitting the snooze button. I just had a glass full of coffee and slammed it. I don’t have the energy.” It’s hilarious. You guys are making me laugh. I do appreciate the great emails and to kind of recap the tips that we talked about in podcast number 14, we’re gonna go through them real quickly for the people that wished they would’ve heard it. “Oh, I wish I would’ve heard those five tips. What are they, Jake? Tell me so I can improve my life right now.” Okay,

OSR 014: Five Tips To Help You Change

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Fri, Aug 16, 2013


In this episode we will talk about:
In this episode of Operations Self Reset Podcast we talk about five tips to get you started in the journey of the new you.  It’s not easy to just hear something motivating and take action.   I relate coffee to motivation.  As soon as you drink it you get the feeling of an “I can do it” attitude.  As the coffee wears off you start to second guess things you were going to do.

 

These tips are not mind-blowing or super secret.  They are tips that work for me and I want to share them with you.  When I was searching for answers I discovered these tips through my time researching, reading, and talking to others.

 

I hope you find value in them.

 
In this session you’ll discover:
1. Wake up refreshed.

Figure out how much time you need to get the best night’s rest.  Personally I need six and a half hours to feel great in the morning.  I also suggest not hitting the snooze button at all.  It will be hard at first but I highly suggest trying it.  You will feel tired at first but when you get in a rhythm it’s worth it.  Upon waking, drink water.  You lose one and a half liters of water when you are sleeping.  I suggest drinking water to hydrate your body.  You take care of your body; it will take care of you.

 

2. Break the wrist and walk away.

This line is from a movie.  I associate this with refusing to do things that are not in our own personal big picture.  If you are able to stop going out, reading the hot news in Facebook, or wasting time on other things, you can get so much done.  Focus on your personal big picture. When things come into your life, take a second to see if this will help you reach your goal.  If not, just say NO, then break the wrist and walk away.

 

3. Set Goals.

I like to break down my goals into daily goals, weekly, monthly, or yearly.  I make sure I hit everything on my daily goals.  When it comes to weekly goals I like to know what events are coming up so early in the week I can spread my plan over the course of the week instead of setting one day aside.  Monthly and yearly goals are the same.

 

4. Finish Projects.

I am very, very bad at this.  I am not very good at dedicating myself to one project and tackling it.  Knowing what are some of your weaknesses will help you find a solution.  I know what I need to do—I just need to FOCUS.  That’s a whole podcast on focus.

 

5. Organize your Life.

An organized life is an organized mind.  I need to make sure I have a clean spot to do what needs to be done.  It’s nice to come home to a clean house.  Things are in place, you feel like you can focus more, and it makes you feel good.  If you are a person who has lots of clutter around, try to remove it ASAP.  It will help you move towards success.

 

Those are my five tips; I know there are better ones but these are my KISS tips.

 

Keep It Simple Silly.

[spoiler]You’re listening to Operation Self Reset with Jake Nawrocki. Now it’s time to reset your life.

Hey guys and welcome back to Operation Self Reset. I am Jake Nawrocki, and this is the one and only place to change the person you are to that person that you strive, that you crave, that you just know that’s inside, and you just need to let that person or thing or idea or emotion out there and just kick butt in life. and that’s the thing that we’re trying to uncover today. So, my true fans out there, I do appreciate you guys with the emails and saying, “Jake, where the heck have you been?” And I appreciate the wake-up call because I have been super busy and like anybody. It’s August here and you’re enjoying the warm weather, you’re hanging out with friends and family and things like that and to be honest I have just not had the time to put aside and make a podcast. But that is why I want to check back in with you guys and say that I am back on pa...

Today we talk with Nate Holzapfel from Mission Belt Company. He was on podcast #3 and we had such a great time he asked to come back on for a second time. Nate Holzapfel has a great outlook on life. He always brings great energy, motivation, and stories to share.

Nate recently has been crushing it with the belt business. Within three weeks his company had over one million dollars in sales. Again he is not in it for the business. He is trying to help less fortunate families by providing them with funds to create businesses for themselves. Mission Belt Company has helped over 800 families with financial backing. The best part is that 98% of all the families that take the funding pay back the money within the first year.

After hearing how many families Mission Belt Company is helping I want to start some type of nonprofit, but Nate shined light on ways we all can give back without starting one. He told me that there are lots of companies that give back like Mission Belt Company does. Nate told me to just take a few more minutes to do a little more research on things I am buying. If I just find companies that give back I will be helping the cause. We can all help without starting a nonprofit. Every little bit helps.
If you want to contact Nate Holzapfel to speak at your event contact him at support@missionbelt.com

OSR 012: Public Speaking Tips

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Sat, Jul 20, 2013


In This Episode We Talk with:
In this podcast episode I talk to Richard Brundage about public speaking tips. Public speaking is something we all will encounter sometime in our lives. Even if we try to run from it, it will find us. No matter if it’s a birthday party, wedding, or talking to a little league team, you will have to speak in front of a group at some point.

I wanted to publish this conversation because I am currently studying for a promotional exam. In the exam I need to deliver a 15-minute presentation about myself. I need to make sure I am ready to stand in front of two to four people and tell them why I should be selected for this job.

Richard and I met on an airplane about six years ago. That was well before this podcast was even an idea. I kept his business card and when it came time to look for interviews I contacted him. I honestly feel this is a great podcast on public speaking. Most of the comments and ideas are for speaking in front of groups. You can use this information any way you feel fit.

As I have stated before, if you are able to take away at least 10% of the knowledge from this interview, it will be well worth it. If you are not into public speaking I still feel the information contained within this interview will help you in speaking in any area of your life.

Richard Brundage is an award-winning television director, news anchor, and lecturer who has trained some of the world's top CEOs, high-ranking government officials, celebrities, and sports figures for appearances on such programs as 60 Minutes and Dateline NBC.

Brundage has anchored television news programs, lectured at universities, worked with celebrities, and conducted media workshops for senior executives of major corporations around the world.

He has trained corporate, government, medical, legal, law enforcement, and entertainment executives around the country and the world for more than 20 years. Recently, he was selected by the U.S. State Department to conduct media response training for new U.S. Ambassadors prior to their taking their posts around the world.

His clients include Universal Studios Hollywood, U.S. State Department, Bayer Chemical, American Academy of Family Physicians, National Weather Service, U.S. Coast Guard, and numerous organizations worldwide.

He is also a guest lecturer at colleges and universities.
Here are a few Specific items we discuss in the podcast:
-People arrive where they are in life sometimes on purpose. They arrive by listening to their inner selves.
-If you are passionately committed to what you are doing, it’s contagious.
-Everyone has a fire in his or her heart.
-Quit obsessing over money. Your money is made already. If you are passionately committed, the money will follow you.
-If you chase the money, you will never get there.
-Public speaking is the #1 fear. Death is ranked #3.
-If it comes from your heart, people will listen.
-People need to feel you before they can hear you.
-People make up their minds about you in 5 seconds.
-When you are 30 years old you can decode over 30,000 facial expressions.
-Two things to look for in a speaker or when presenting: be honest and compassionate.
-In your audience, 1/3 think you’re brilliant, 1/3 have made up their mind, 1/3 need to be persuaded.
-We learn by story telling.
-The first words out of your mouth, combined with the way you look when you say them and what other people know about you already, become your image.
-How to outline a speech? Don’t type it out; say it from the heart.
-People that inspire you the most are the ones that are the quietest.
-Number one thing old people say about life: “I wish I would have taken that risk.”
-There is nothing wrong with failure.
-You can get sued talking from your head but not from your heart.

Thu, Jul 04, 2013


Michael E. Thornton Medal of Honor Recipient shares his story on the OSR podcast.

 

Michael E. Thornton, a native of South Carolina, enlisted in the United States Navy in 1967. He entered basic training at the Naval Training Center, San Diego, California.

He was selected for specialized training in Basic Underwater Demolition training in Coronado, California and the Navy's elite SEAL community.

Upon successful completion of training, he was assigned to SEAL team ONE based in Coronado, California from 1968-1974. During the period of October 1968 to January 1973, he completed several tours of duty in the Republic of Vietnam and Thailand.

During this time, he was the recipient of numerous awards. His most prestigious decoration was  for heroic actions on his last tour of duty in Vietnam which.  This resulted in saving the life of a fellow SEAL. For this action during a reconnaissance and intelligence gathering mission, he received this Nation's highest award, the CONGRESSIONAL MEDAL OF HONOR.

From 1974 to 1977 he served as an instructor at the SEAL training command in Coronado, California. In 1977 he transferred to SEAL team TWO in Little Creek, Virginia where he was the senior enlisted (man) in an operational platoon and also served as an instructor for SEAL Basic Indoctrination. In 1978 he deployed to the United Kingdom to serve two years with the Royal Marine British Special Boat Squadron in an exchange billet.

Upon completion of his successful tour with the British, he returned to help establish and operate with SEAL Team SIX. Here he was instrumental in developing new and innovative operational techniques and hardware that formed the foundation for future unique special operations missions.

In June 1982, Lieutenant Thornton received his commission as a United States Navy Ensign. He completed Basic Officer Diving and Salvage Training and immediately thereafter was assigned as the Officer-in-Charge of the Second Class Dive School at the Little Creek Amphibious Base in Norfolk, Virginia. In January 1986, he reported to the USS Edenton (ATS-1) as the First Lieutenant and Diving and Salvage Officer for Combat Support Squadron Eight, at Little Creek. In April 1990, Lieutenant Thornton reported as Bravo Company Commander where he coordinated a rapid response deployment in support of DESERT SHEILD/ DESERT STORM.

In May 1992, Lieutenant Thornton retired being the last Congressional Medal of Honor recipient serving on active duty in the Navy.

To date there have only been 3,465 Medal Of Honor Recipients in the history of the award.  Currently there are only 80 living recipients of this award.

I interviewed Lt. Thornton on July 4, 2013.  I wanted to share his story on our country's Independence Day.  Its a true honor to have Lt. Thornton come on the Operation Self Reset Podcast.

OSR 009: Millionaire By 25, Corey Wadden Shares His Quest Of Making One Million Dollars In Two Years

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Mon, Jul 01, 2013


In this episode we will talk about:
I was not expecting to produce another podcast until July 4.  I was contacted by Corey Wadden, who started Millionaire by 25.  Corey publicly proclaimed to make one million dollars by the time he is 25.  I have been following Corey and his journey for the last six months.  I feel he has some amazing things to share with us so I had to jump on this opportunity.
Corey Wadden lives in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.  His parents were divorced when he was a young age.  Corey was raised being sent back and forth between his mother and father and from school to school. His parents had little education and it proved difficult for his family to get by.
Acting became a career aspiration for Corey because he associated characters on a screen with sanctuary.  His life at that time was not the best.  At 20 he planned to move to California, as many aspiring actors do, to pursue the acting dream.  He didn't have enough money so Corey started doing door-to-door sales.  He tried to get enough money saved up to move.  Corey was actually fired from that job.
It was around that time that Corey realized that his family didn't have a retirement plan.  It bothered him; he didn't feel comfortable pursuing a career that could take a decade or longer to be successful financially while his family was struggling.  However, it wasn't until his mom was at risk of losing her job, for no fault of her own, that Corey abandoned the acting aspirations temporarily.
Corey and a friend, who is an aspiring musician, came up with an idea to film themselves as they tried to become successful artists and financially free by the age of 25. They soon dismissed the idea because they didn't want to risk losing their privacy and having cameras filming them all the time.
Corey realized that if he doesn’t provide retirement support for his family, they won't have the opportunity.  Corey began thinking of what he could do and the memory of "Millionaire By 25" came back to him. At the time Corey was 23.  Corey thought, “What if I decided to take 2 years of my life to do everything I could to retire my family and attain financial freedom?” After watching documentaries like Capitalism, A Love Story, Corey realized that there are a lot of people struggling to get by financially.  Corey thought, “If I documented the entire process, I'm sure I would learn a lot of valuable knowledge on how people can get out of these types of situations and take control of their lives.”  That knowledge could prove very helpful to people in need.
Corey plans to finish his documentary and submit it to film festivals. He also plans to take a portion of the documentary sales and give it to a charity foundation that helps families get back on their feet and in control of their financial present and future.
 
In this session you’ll discover:
-What type of feelings did Corey have when he proclaimed his goal online?  What reactions did he receive from others?  I also wanted to know what kind of self-talk was going on within Corey.
-What type of books did Corey use to guide him along the process?  Corey had no background or experience in business.  He literally started from nothing.
-Does Corey need motivation to continue with the quest of obtaining one million dollars in two years?
-I want to know how we can set big goals and reach them.
-What type of changes did Corey go through during his journey toward his goal?
-Why should everyone have a dream book?
-Corey talks about his documentary and how we can help donate money toward the cause.

OSR 008: Jordan Hart, Author Of Steel Rainbow, Shares His Life Story

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Mon, Jun 24, 2013


In episode #8:
In this episode I sit down with Jordan Hart, author of ‘Steel Rainbow: The Legendary Underground Guide to Becoming an ‘80s Rock Star.’

You might be thinking, “what does a rock ‘n’ roll book tell us about resetting our lives?” Nothing, really. The book won’t help you change your life, but the story of how it was written might.

Jordan Hart is a normal guy. He was born in the ‘80s to a father who loved the leopard-print-pants-and-teased-hair music craze of that time. Naturally, Jordan grew up listening to Hair Metal.

Fast-forward 23 years. Jordan went the traditional route of graduating from college and getting a full time job. During his 9-5 routine he started to crave owning his own business. After months of planning and preparation he parted ways from his fulltime job and became a self-employed graphic designer at the age of 25. Jordan loved his new lifestyle, until it came to an abrupt halt.

Suddenly, Jordan started having pain when he took deep breaths. He figured it was just stress or a cold. Then, after a couple of days of pain, he began coughing up blood. Alarmed, he went to the hospital and was told he had a pulmonary embolism (a blood clot had traveled from his legs, passed through his heart, and showered into his lungs). He also learned he would be in the hospital for the next week, and recovering on bed rest for several months.

That was Jordan’s life changing moment.

When it came to his time on bed rest, he had two options – laying around and feeling sorry for himself, or making the best out of his free time by focusing on something positive. He took option two and dedicated a few hours each day to writing a humor book about Hair Metal, which was an idea he had four years earlier but never had the time to develop.

Jordan Hart shares his story, some life changing moments, lessons he learned, understanding how the universe works, tips on believing in yourself, and making the best out of the worst situations.

To heal himself he created something that made him laugh just for fun, and ended up getting an international book deal out of it.

This episode of Operation Self Reset reveals how a positive attitude can help you achieve anything, and how laugher is always the best medicine.
More specifically, in this session you’ll find out about:
-Quitting your 9-5 day job and working for yourself.
-Making decisions and going with your gut.
-Feeling comfortable about taking chances when it comes to your life, job, and way of life.
-Leaving your current job on good terms.
-Understanding life is precious.
-Finding the message of greatness in dark times.
-Using the power of laughter to heal.
-Understanding that things happen for a reason and how to capitalize on unfortunate moments.
-Hustling every day.
-Making things happen yourself – no one will hand your dream to you.
-Meeting people and putting yourself out there.
-Taking criticism and moving past it.
-Extending your hand to make connections.
-Fulfilling your dreams.

OSR 007: Best Fathers Day Gift I Could Give, I invite my Dad on OSR

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Sat, Jun 15, 2013


In this episode we will talk about Fathers.
This is the best fathers day gift I could give my father.  Gone are the days of the silly tie's, the useless cooking gadgets, and kiss the chef tee shirts.  I invited my dad onto the podcast.  This is really funny to me considering my father does not know how to use a computer or has ever been on the internet.
Today is a Father’s Day special. We will talk with my father, the one and only Greg Nawrocki.  He has taught me many lessons throughout the years. He has inspired me to become mentally tough, reach my goals, and never take crap from anyone.  He is an amazing guy, and I think each and every one of you will love him.

My dad will talk about his upbringing and the jobs he had when he was a kid. I asked him to talk about turning points in his life that led him to where he is today.

He will share some funny stories of the past. (It’s a father and son duo so you have to throw in some good stories!)  We will also talk with him about how to raise positive, confident, and determined kids.

Happy Fathers Day to my dad and to all dads everywhere.
In this session you’ll discover
-How to want more in life even when you think you might have a good job.
-How to understand failing is good.
- How to allow your kids to fail to make them stronger in the long run.
-How to remember where you came from. Understanding your life might take you in different places in the world, but always having a respect for your foundation is a key to success.
-How to cultivate a love for reading.
-How to learn to take a few great thoughts and ideas out of every book you read.
-How to use a gallon of vinegar to replace the smell of gasoline in a big blue van.
-How to apply the 10,000 hour rule to become great.
-How to be thankful for what you have in life instead of focusing on what you don't have.

[spoiler]You’re listening to Operation Self Reset with Jake Nawrocki. Today is June 16, 2013, and it’s Father’s Day. Happy Father’s Day to not only my dad but to all the dads listening to this podcast.

Hey guys and welcome back to Operation Self Reset. Today is Father’s Day and I figured, you know what? Instead of giving my dad some goofy grilling outfit or some crazy tool, gadget thingamajigger. I thought, “Why not bring him on the podcast and let him preach what he has been preaching to myself, our family, our friends, our relatives and to even random people on the street about just loving life, kicking butt, and just staying positive day-in and day-out?” it’s a long interview, so I just want to get right to it.

Hey guys, and today we have a Father’s Day special. Coming to you live from my studio here in Milwaukee, WI, the one and only Greg Nawrocki, my father, a.k.a. dad. Never really got comfortable calling you father or dad. I don’t know where that came from maybe it was just because you never listened to dad, so I started calling you by your first name. But welcome and what do you think about this podcasting and/or you holding a microphone and looking at the screen?

Well, it’s always enjoyable to be with my son and especially now that he’s venturing out into a new facet of his life, so I’m happy to be here and hopefully we can give people their money’s worth.

Perfect. Perfect. Yeah, that’s my father—always talking about money. So there you go. So, Dad, let’s talk about I guess a little background. Give everybody out there listening a little bit of your personal history, and I know, I mean, you’re old, so this might be a long history lesson. So make it kind of quick, but tell us where you began.

Well, I’m 66 years young as of May 31st of this year. Born in Milwaukee, WI, grew up in Milwaukee, WI, and as a young kid we were fortunate to be in a facility where we had a lot of room to run ...

OSR 006: The Bulletproof Exuctive Dave Asprey talkes about Bulletproof coffee, sleep, and hacking the body

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Fri, Jun 07, 2013


In this episode we will talk about:
-What is Bullet proof Coffee and why should we drink it?

-My new intro music. I want to hear what you guys think let me know.

-I had my baby boy Nolan Jacob Nawrocki May 10 2013.

-Dave Asprey, Bulletproof Executive.  I was able to track him down and get an interview with him.

- How to live longer by sleeping less
In this session you’ll discover:
I got an email form a friend about a new type of coffee it is called Bulletproof Coffee.  Bulletproof Coffee is a process that adds grass fed butter and MCT oil into your coffee. It sounds nuts but you will feel different from any other type of coffee you have ever had.
The personal effects I have found from this type of coffee has been noticeable. I have personally had longer stretches of caffeine buzz throughout the day. I did not feel the traditional crash like most coffees I have tried.
Here is the exact way to make your own Bulletproof coffee Recipe. ( This was taken from www.bulletproofexec.com)
*Start with 4-500 ml (2 mugs) of black coffee brewed with my mold-free beans.
*Add 2 Tbs (or more, up to 80 grams, about 2/3 of a standard stick of butter) of Kerry Gold or other UNSALTED grass-fed butter
*Add 30 grams of MCT oil for max energy, weight loss and brain function (this is 6 times stronger than coconut oil, your next best choice)
*Blend with a pre-heated hand blender, Magic Bullet, or (best) counter top blender until there is a creamy head of foam. (It doesn’t work well if you mix it with a spoon)

Why should I only use grass-fed butter? Grass-fed butter is much healthier than other butter.  It doesn’t make cholesterol levels worse, it makes them better!  Starting your day with grass-fed butter will give you lots of energy and it will give your body healthy fats that it will use to make cell walls and hormones.
We also talk about how to sleep less and do more. I read on the blog about how we can increase our living time if we reduce our sleeping time. This is a very personal thing when it comes to know ones self. If you have issues sleeping no need to try or read this. If you feel you need more time in your day to increase your output I highly suggest you read his article. I will post it in the links below.
Dave Asprey has given me a 10% coupon to share with you. Head over to his store where you can buy all products related to health, mind, and body. I posted the link in the link section below this article.
Some of you might need help making your own personal Bulletproof coffee so that is why I made a You Tube video of me making it from scratch. Head over to my You Tube channel and check it out. If you don't like coffee no need to worry I also show you how to make your modified Yack butter tea. Check it out and give it a try.

[spoiler]You are listening to the Operation Self Reset podcast with Jake Nawrocki. Now it’s time to find that reset button. Where did I put it? Here it is.

Hey guys, and welcome back to Operation Self Reset: the one and only place to change the way you think, act, and believe in yourself. And I want to say thank you guys again for taking the time to listen to this podcast. You guys have really inspired me to continue down this road of providing information for you guys to change the person you are to the person that you want to be. I have been receiving a lot of emails from different types of people emailing me about their fears, emailing about the issues that are going on around in their personal lives. And, honestly, it’s awesome. I mean I’m so happy that people are reaching out to me, asking me for not only help but for suggestions in improving their life. And you know what? Like I’ve been talking about all along in this podcast, it’s about talking to other people, getting different ideas, and seeing if those tips and tools can be put into your own personal life. So again, thank you for the feedback. Love it. Keep bringing it in. and if you guys have suggestions or you need some help in certain areas of your life, feel free to email me at support@operationselfreset.com. And I will personally get back to you guys. It might take a little bit because I have been getting a lot of emails and stuff like that, but feel free to email me anything, anything that’s going good, bad, things you need help changing, or if you just need a quick little tip to keep you on the path to success. Let me know, and I’ll help you out the best that I can.

So today we’re gonna be talking about part number two of a two-part miniseries. Part one, which was podcast number four, I told you guys about the story on how I went to a meet-up, and I was selected to drive to Des Moines, IA, which is about 5.5 hours away and meet with the founders of a brand new ice cream company. All I did was go to a meet-up, I stood on up, and I proclaimed my love for ice cream for about 30-45 seconds, and a gentleman picked me out and said, “You know what? You are the guy for the job.” Now, not to ruin the fun for you guys, but if you guys were wondering—cause last episode in podcast number four, I really didn’t provide any closure to what actually happened. In the long run, it was a great experience, all that stuff. I did not take the job at Blue Sky Creamery. I was not a manager. I didn’t start a new franchise here in the Milwaukee area. But it was a great, great experience and that is why I had to share tips with you guys on how to go to meet-ups, how to talk to other people, and how to make connections because this life is about making connections. It’s very good to continue those just good, old-fashioned techniques of meeting people, showing that person who you are as just a true human being and hopefully you guys can connect on a very, I don’t want to say intimate level, but on a very personal level. In today’s episode, we are going to share with you guys the interview that I had with Will Schroeder. He is the founder of Blue Sky Creamery. And this guy—put it this way: he was not born to sell ice cream, but what he was born to do was create a machine ...

I will share my story. When I was twenty-two years old, I went to an invention and business start-up meeting.  I walked into the meeting with nothing; and left with a story, a connection, and “almost” a job after only speaking for thirty seconds.

I will share my seven meetup tips you can use to get yourself into meeting with others, to propel your life, job, or passion forward.
In this session you’ll discover:
-How I met Roy Reiman who  is best known for his country style magazines, books, and other home products. Mr. Reiman built one of the country’s largest private subscription-based publishing companies. It was once reported that one out of every eight households in the United States subscribed to a Reiman magazine.

Seven tips you can use to start meeting people you never knew were out there.

Keep your ears open.
Get out of your normal routine and explore.
Have a positive mindset and transform your personality if necessary.
Now is the time to walk on in.
Meet some cool people.
Connect with your top five.
Repeat the process.

[spoiler]This is the Operation Self Reset podcast with Jake Nawrocki. Now it’s time to reset your life. Where did I put that button?

Hey guys, and welcome back to another episode of Operation Self Reset. This is podcast number four, and I want to say thank you guys so much for listening to this stuff. I mean, I’m looking at the world map of all the locations you guys have been downloading this podcast, and we have people from Australia, China, India, Great Britain, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom, Spain listening to this podcast! And that is unbelievable to me. I mean, this is so cool. Hopefully I’m providing some great value to these guys, and if I am, please go to iTunes and leave a review for me.

So today, we’re gonna be doing something a little different with the podcast. We’re actually gonna break this podcast into two individual podcasts. You’re listening to podcast number four right now, and we’re gonna have a follow up with podcast number five, and I will tell you guys the reason in a minute. First, I want to tell you guys about the company that we’re gonna be talking about today in podcast number four and podcast number five. So this is kind of like a little riddle, alright? So here’s the riddle: if you don’t catch it, it will run down your arm. What am I talking about? Five seconds. Four, three, two, one—[buzzer sound 01:36]. You got it wrong. Geez, come one, I thought that was pretty easy. Today, we’re talking about ice cream. Yes, good, old fashioned, delicious, not so much nutritious only if you’re lacking calcium because there’s a lot of that in ice cream. But I want to talk to you guys specifically about a company called Blue Sky Creamery. They’re founded in Iowa—Des Moines, Iowa. And it’s a new process of creating super silky-s...

OSR 002: What Fear is holding you back from Success?

Author: Jake Nawrocki; Corporate Speaker, Author, Professional Firefighter, Inventor, Real Estate owner, husband, and father of 3 young boys!
Fri, May 03, 2013


In this episode we will talk about:

What is fear is holding you back from success?  I bet it’s something as small as not having the information, ideas, or  connections to succeed.   I personally knew the fear that was keeping me from success.  It was my fear of putting myself and my ideas out into the world.

In this podcast I want to talk about my first real breakthrough when it came to making my ideas come to life. I also figured out the fear holding me back.

That my breakthrough idea was called the Tailgate Spotter.  Tailgate Spotter is a device that allows the driver to view the location of his tailgate on a pickup truck.  A quick background story: I had a cabinet fall out of the back of my truck because the tailgate was in the down position, and I did not realize it.  I had a problem, and I made and invention to solve it.  Please visit www.tailgatespotter.com for details.  I loved the idea, the application, and the design; but when I finalized the design, logo, and website, and it was time to present it to the public,  I froze in my tracks.  I didn't want to friends, co-workers, or family to see this thing.  I was scared to put my “baby” out there on the market. I thought to myself, "What’s going to happen if they see this?  Will they laugh, make fun of me, or not want to be associated with me?"  I know this sounds crazy, but it was the truth.  I had a fear of putting myself out there.

Once I identified my fear, it made it a littler easier to get over the fear. When I gained the courage to put the Tailgate Spotter on the market, everyone’s response was so positive I could not believe I was ever worried in the first place.

I want to help you face your FEAR!  Whether you know it already or not, you need to find it, understand it, and find ways to overcome it.

Your fear might be holding you back from a new job, finding new friends, changing locations, experiencing adventure, discovering inventions, and expanding your world.

Please share with the community your #1 Fear.  Post it below and or leave me a voice message.  I hope to compile all the fears people have and share ways that they can be overcome.

In this session you’ll discover:

My Fear
Tailgate Spotter

Understanding the importance of believing in yourserlf
Once you put yourself out there others will want to listen.

[spoiler]You’re listening to Operation Self Reset with Jake Nawrocki. Now where did I put that reset button?

Hello and welcome back to Operation Self Reset: the one and only place where you can change the way you think, act, and believe in yourself. Again, thank you so much for taking the time to listen to what I have to say and thank you for the responses that I have already received online, the comments, the questions, and concerns that you guys have offered to me. I appreciate the feedback and I love the communication so far. Keep it up, and this should grow into a huge community. And maybe, depending on how big it will get maybe we’ll all go to Florida and have a big party or something to celebrate this great success. I don’t know.

But today I want to talk about something that is very near and dear to myself, something that I had to get over to become successful. Well, not really successful, but I will explain more in a minute, and I want to talk to you guys today about fear. What do you fear? Now, I’m not talking about the things that scare you like getting in an elevator packed with people. You know, funny quick story about any elevator. When I went to college, I stayed in the dorms and there were about 13 floors I remember in one of the complexes and I was not on this elevator, but it was a rumor that got spread around and it was in the local paper and everything like that.

[spoiler]You’re listening to Operation Self Reset with Jake Nawrocki. Now it’s time to reset your life. Hit it!

Hello and welcome to Operation Self Reset. My name’s Jake Nawrocki, and this is episode number one, the first of many episodes to come down the pipe from OperationSelfREset.com. I thank you again for joining me. This is going to be an awesome, awesome podcast. I hope you get a lot of information, knowledge, and fun facts to share with your family at Christmastime, because there’s nothing better than a fun fact, right?

So let’s dive into this. We’re going to be doing things a little bit differently today because this is episode number one, and you want to get to know me, Jake Nawrocki. Who am I? I know. It’s going to be a very deep, interesting conversation. I have a lot to share with you. But also we’re going to talk about what Operation Self Reset is and what it means to me and what it means to you. Obviously, the reason you’re listening to this podcast is not only to hear my amazing voice—I know I’m talented, thank you—but to get information that can change the way you think, act, and believe. And it’s basically on the mindset of resetting things that have gone okay in your life. You know, some things have gone well; some things have gone badly, and we want to change the bad into the good so we can have our lives just be great full time.

And that’s what life is all about because every single minute we spend on this life, excuse me, on this earth is very, very precious. There are only so many ticks in your chest, a.k.a. your heart, that, and the craziest thing is with all the technology, with all the iPhone apps and all that crazy stuff there is no way to determine when that ticker is going to run out. So we really need to make the most out of this life. Because, gosh, it is amazing, isn’t it? There have to be times in your life when you wake up, you, you go on a trip, you meet with new friends or old friends or whatever, your experiences that sometimes you just go, “Wow! That was a great time. Wow! That was amazing. Wow! That scenery was beautiful.” You know there are times like that, just little slivers that make us go, “Wow, I really appreciate life.” And that’s what everything is all about literally. In the end, that’s what life is all about.

So before I start talking about how I came up with the idea of Operation Self Reset,
