What if you could be completely in control of what you think, how you feel, and what you do? I mean, wouldn’t that kind of be the ultimate superpower!?

Consider that you do have that power. When you change your perspective, it changes the way you think, the way you feel, and the actions you take, which enables you to change your life. Thus, the key to changing your life begins with changing your perspective.

If you spend your time focused on your perceived inadequacies or things that upset you, it affects how you feel, how you treat yourself, and how you show up every day. This is especially true when you are facing stressful times.

On the other hand, when you consciously optimize your perspective, you optimize your life, and you give yourself the power to show up optimally for yourself, for the people you love, and for humanity.

Today’s episode is all about how to choose the perspectives that will empower you to be at your best, even when faced with hard times, misfortune, and challenges. You’ll learn how to stop negative emotions from controlling how your brain and body feel, the value of focusing on positivity even as you endure difficulty, and how to see the gift and the beauty inherent to every struggle.


  • Why perspective makes all the difference when we’re facing adversity.
  • Why negative emotions are valuable—and how to feel them in a useful, productive way.
  • How to choose a perspective that empowers you no matter what.
  • What I do when I find myself stressed out or frustrated about something beyond my control.
  • Why you have a 100% success rate of surviving everything you will ever face.
