In Episode 247, AJ recaps just how specific and physical his work on NCIS:LA was—and how fun. Then he and Trev offer their thoughts on the whole “art versus money” conundrum, before sitting down for Part 1 of their chat with productivity and success transformation coach Craig Ballantyne.
You guys remember that book called The Perfect Day Formula Trev couldn’t shut up about? Yeah—Craig wrote that.
Craig’s not an actor, or even in the entertainment industry, but the productivity and success principles he’s put together can make a massive difference in the lives of anyone. Part 1 is about how Craig got his start, intuitively learning and adjusting his approach to life and business until one day, he looked up and was the Editor-in-Chief of EarlyToRise.com. Hear the simple ways he overcome anxiety, why everyone should have a personal success coach, and an easy mindset shift that’ll help you conquer any obstacle.
“You can improve. You just have to look at everything as an experiment, as training, and have that open, positive mind. Understand that you can change anything.”
This is one of my favorite interviews yet. I’m saying that more and more often, and I think that’s a good sign.
I grew up reading Craig’s articles in Men’s Health magazine. Back then, Craig was a *just* a personal trainer with a column in a men’s magazine—not to mention a self-described introvert with crippling anxiety. Hearing how his ideology, which he’s built up and refined over years of trial and error, professional coaching, and intuitive course correction, has helped him reclaim his days and mastermind his dream business teaching others how to be successful in their personal lives and professional careers is nothing short of spectacular.
We cover the basics in this first part of our chat: the beginnings of his journey, the core tenets of his philosophy, and how he’s followed the Law of Action Attraction to create a life that is both declared and realized. Consistently.
“You just have to make sure you’re taking care of yourself. No matter if you’re in a performance, or if you’re sitting at a desk all day. You’re still a performance athlete in terms of your mental and physical health.”
Enjoy Part 1. And next week in Part 2, get ready to be hella inspired.
