61: Shaun T | 7 Transformational Principles for Living the Best Life

Shaun T (@ShaunT) has become one of the most recognizable fitness trainers in the world while running programs like Hip Hop Abs, Insanity, and Shaun Week. He's also the author of T Is for Transformation: Unleash the 7 Superpowers to Help You Dig Deeper, Feel Stronger, and Live Your Best Life.

What We Discuss with Shaun T:

  • Why Shaun T believes in living life with truth, trust, and transparency after decades of hiding in the closet about his sexuality -- and how most of us are in the closet about something whether we realize it or not.
  • What Shaun uncovered about his own patterns of behavior by going to therapy.
  • Looking at our life as a series of turning points, and how we can use those turning points to continue moving forward.
  • Using our anger to motivate us instead of hold us down.
  • Why we often keep ourselves down so others around us won't get angry or jealous.
  • And much more...

What We Discuss with Allen Gannett:

  • What various fields of study have known -- for years -- about the relationship between intelligence and creativity and how this is at odds with popular belief.

Guy Winch (@GuyWinch) is a licensed psychologist, leading advocate for integrating the science of emotional health into our daily lives, workplaces, and education systems, and author of How to Fix a Broken Heart.

What We Discuss with Guy Winch:

  • While our physical body works overtime to heal itself when injured, our mind counterintuitively works against healing the wounds of emotional trauma. Guy explains why this happens and why it's imperative to intervene.
  • The insidious lengths to which the mind will go to keep us perpetually experiencing pain and how we can take back control from our default autopilot.
  • We can't passively count on time to heal all wounds. We need to take a more active role in our recovery from an emotional wound.
  • If you shame someone who is coping with the death of a pet or otherwise lack the ability to empathize with their pain, you might be kind of a monster.
  • Getting comfortable asking for help when we're recovering from emotional trauma helps others understand that it's okay for them to ask for help as well.
  • And much more...
