How to Level Up in 2022

Raising our self-worth is the most important commitment we can make this year.  When we raise our self-worth, we find more confidence and motivation to pursue our goals and move to the next level of our lives.  Self-worth is the foundation, the roots of all advancement.  Think about it – why would you pursue a goal if you didn’t believe you deserved it?  You wouldn’t.  Moreover, if you did attain a goal and found the experience undesirable, you would not work to keep the rewards of the goal.

High self-worth is the power to eliminate self-destructive behavior and negative self-talk.  Using the simple practices outlined in this podcast, you change the foundational language and emotions about what you believe you are and why you matter.  These change your decisions and actions to the positive, which leads to a much better life.

Body language is the dominant form of communication in business and in our personal lives.  It reveals our true emotions and tells others what we really think about them and the situation.   As a person who understands the power of self-worth and how to use it to level up your life, delivering the right body language is critical.  

In this podcast, Robert Christiansen breaks down five critical body language mistakes people make in business and relationships.  These include:

  2. Hands behind the head

How to Rewire Your Brain with Bob Doyle

Bob Doyle is an Executive Coach and the  CEO of Boundless Living. Over the past 20 years, Bob has been helping people work with the Law of Attraction and transform their lives. He is best known for his role as a Law of Attraction expert and coach in the movie, The Secret. Since 1998, Bob has taught the principles of personal transformation through programs, live events, podcasts, coaching, and writing. Though still grounded in the Law of Attraction, Bob’s focus has shifted from the metaphysical aspects to the brain’s role in the process of reality creation.

Bob joins the Motive For Life podcast to explain the relationship between the brain’s neuroplasticity and manifestation. He describes why it’s difficult for many people to transform their lives and discusses why the Law of Attraction doesn’t work for many people. He also shares the steps you can take toward changing your brain’s wiring and underscores the importance of being non-negotiable about the kind of person you want to become.

This week on The Model FA Podcast:

  • Why Bob shifted his focus away from the Law of Attraction to the brain’s power to create reality
  • How meaning drives us into action
  • Why rewire your brain and what makes personal transformation happen
  • What makes personal transformation difficult and why people fail at the Law of Attraction
  • What it means to manifest on autopilot
  • Why Bob thinks it’s a waste of time to convince people about the Law of Attraction
  • The first steps toward rewiring the brain and the power of visualizing your day

How I Wrecked and Recovered My Life

I want to thank everyone who has encouraged me to tell more of my story.  In this podcast, I detail many of the troubles I created that led to my financial collapse and eventual recovery.  It was not pleasant, easy, or something I would wish on any person.  It was, however, necessary for me to learn about self-worth and the Red Zone.  Hope this story is useful to others.

How To Not Look Like An Idiot

We all have talked to ourselves in a voice that is critical and demeaning.  It is really hard to break the cycle of negative language and understand that we have control over our thinking if only we knew how to make the change.  In this podcast, Robert goes off the rails and drives home the truth that you are in control and it is your job to hijack your subconscious and reprogram it to work for you, not against you.

Hello Everyone!

Side Hustles
This week my partner, Devon Wayt, and I officially launched Pallas Pens, our whiteboard pen company.  We were tired of bad and wasteful whiteboard pens, we decided to re-invent the dry erase marker. Here’s the story. This side hustle was a great project, over two years in R&D, patents in the US, China, and EU, and lots of prototypes. But we got the first MVP done!

The pens are stuck in the conga line of ships at the Port of Los Angeles and should be in inventory shortly. We are taking orders now and will ship as soon as they arrive.

Bonus – We have a bunch of training videos as well. Check out the YouTube channel here.

Get your pens here:

Motive For Life launched a new Self-worth Mastermind course called Money Mastery.  It is every Wednesday night at 7 PM Pacific and will run for 6 weeks.  You can register here.
What I’m Reading
Just finished Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir – an amazing story and wonderful look into the world of space travel.  Loved the pace, characters, and humor.  Highly recommend it for anyone – however for those who are math and science geeks, the depth and breadth of Andy Weir’s “science” narrative is amazing.  Have fun with this one.

Podcast Interview
This week’s interview is with Makeala Addell – a professed “army brat” and optimist.  She coaches women on how to find their purpose, schedule, and plan time to attain their goal and do it with a positive mindset.  Makeala holds an MS Education, Literacy & Learning Specialization and a BS in Psychology.  She had powerful teachers who shaped her character early and hold strong positions in her life today as examples of how to be true to yourself and others.  Her practice is about helping women identify their purpose and making time to achieve them.  She was a wonderful guest.

Sleep, Meditation, and Mental Health
I wake at between 5 and 5:15 am every day.  It’s a routine that seems to have stuck over COVID.  However, this week, I’m struggling with sleep-up a lot because I injured my ear in my woodshop.  Can’t roll over without a shot of pain.  So that rippled downstream into my sleep rhythms, disrupting the usual 7-8 hours.

Found myself bouncing around on Insight Timer, looking for teachers who go deeper.  David Ji is a go-to teacher that I like as he breaks down the key concepts of meditation and opens a space for me to settle my thoughts.  His most popular mediation is called Surrendering to the Silence Within – excellent.

David’s Insight Timer profile is here.

Eating and Drinking
Start my day off with a handful of supplements with 24 ounces of water first thing.  These include:

  1. Fiber from Costco – 8 capsules
  2. Multi-Vitamin – 1 tablet
  3. Fish Oil – 1 tablet
  4. Prostate Health – 1 tablet
  5. Juice Plus Vegetable, Fruit, and Berry Blend – 2 capsules each

Struggling to get 128 oz of water a day into me.  Manage to get 48 – 64 oz but that is not enough.  It is an overt act of personal will and I just seem to forget and look back on the day wondering why it didn’t happen.  Strange head of mine.

Sayings I Heard This Week
“If I am not working on it, no one is.” – Unknown
“Make a good thing out of bad news.” – Leon Bridges
“Start listening, stop imposing.” – Gary Vaynerchuk
“There isn’t a situation I can’t make worse.”  Unknown

All the best, Robert
