Ep.493 ~ Dissecting the Art of Impossible w/ Steven Kotler

February 24, 2021

Steven Kotler ~ Author of The Art of Impossible

~ High-Performance Entrepreneurship ~

 

I am going to start this podcast introduction from some passages at the end of a book our guest today has recently written. “What impossible challenges would you tackle if you knew you could be 500% more productive? If you could be 600% more creative? If you could cut your learning times in half?If you could increase your confidence massively, and also spike the pattern recognition significantly in your brain.

I know it sounds like the drug that everyone has dreamed about for centuries to make people feel limitless, and superhuman. But it is not a drug. It is a biological process that nature has embedded into each and every one of us, and we don’t need to be a professional athlete or naturally talented to access it. 

What is it and how does one access it? We are going to talk about that in today's podcast  because the author has written a book that dissects how one can reach this state to achieve what humans think is impossible for themselves. The book is called The Art of Impossible. The author and today’s guest is Steven Kotler.

Steven is a NYTimes Bestselling Author of numerous books including The Rise of Superman, Bold, Abundance, and my favorite read of 2018 Stealing Fire. He is the founder of Flow-State Collective and is an expert in the field of peak-performance, and achieving the impossible because he has studied individuals who have done this numerous times. Some of those people are well known top-athletes, SpecialOps members, NavySEALS, and some of the world’s top entrepreneurs and innovators. He himself has also been a guinea pig to his own madness, and practices on a regular basis what he preaches.

This is Steven's second time on the podcast, and we are going to get behind the man that has studied for years the art of achieving the impossible, why he wrote this book, and how we can apply this methodology to achieve the impossible in our own lives.

February 10, 2021

Steve Sims ~ CEO of Luxury Concierge Service Bluefish

~ Current Series ~

100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers

 

The guy that can make anything happen! Now, that may sound like a cheesy one liner that some over promotional marketing guru might say to get on Fox Business News. But there are legitimate people out there who are working behind the scenes keeping a low profile connecting the world's wealthiest, most successful, and famous people with experiences, and connections that they need on a professional basis, and we have got one of those guys here on the podcast today. 

 

His name is Steve Sims and he is a real life underground connector running a company called Bluefish. For years, Steve has been helping some of the world’s elite do things like have dinner at the foot of Michelangelo’s David statue in Florence while Andrea Bochelli sings to them, scuba down to the Titanic at the bottom of the ocean, watch Formula 1 racing in Monaco with Royalty, experience the Olympic Bobsled Run, and the list goes on and on and on.

 

He is the official concierge for the Grammys, he has worked personally with Sir Elton John, and Elon Musk, spoken at both Harvard and the Pentagon twice. He has been labeled by Forbes and Entrepreneur Magazine as “The Real Life Wizard of Oz”!  He has published a best-selling book, “Bluefishing - The Art of Making Things Happen”, documenting how he built a business on social currency. Steve’s blackbook could arguably be one of the most valuable contact lists in the world. 

 

Steve Sims is on the show today so let’s rock and roll!

February 3, 2021

100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers

 

 

Have you ever met someone that seems like they have cracked a secret code to make impossible things possible?  Someone that seems like they have a secret superpower to achieve really cool things?

Today’s guest is Cody Lowry and he is one of those guys. Cody set up a meeting with the President of the United States in one week. He carried the Olympic Torch in the Torch Relay. Cody got an audition on Saturday Night Live in 48 hours, got the Pope to sign a baseball, and was given a Superbowl Ring from a Hall of Fame Super Bowl Coach. He is one of those guys that makes the impossible possible. 

Cody Lowry’s story is an upbeat and hilarious one. But it wasn’t always that way. He grew up with poverty, abandonment, and a family that moved thirty-two times within a seven-year period. Yet today, he’s a champion of positivity with advice for everyone on how to make each day count. 

 Cody has been a successful marketer for thirty years, building a multi-million dollar ad agency from scratch. How did he overcome his past to achieve such success? He took on life with a unique perspective, executing bold ideas, making others laugh, and being ever mindful of the little guy.

His advice will delight and inspire you. You’ll hear about his travels, and his ups and downs throughout life. Cody Lowry is a man who’s lived a lot of life and walked the walk, as they say. Now, he’s here to show you the steps to take towards a better life for yourself.
