TMHS 090: Defeat Stress, Deepen Relationships, And Master Your Mindset – With Prince Ea

Benjamin Franklin made a powerful statement when he said, “There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one’s self.”

Consistent happiness, success, health, deeper relationships, and an empowered mindset are all predicated on your ability to know who you truly are and what you’re about.

Your success is going to be dependent on your ability to connect with the people and the world around you. But the question is, if you don’t understand yourself, how can you expect to truly understand anyone else?

Most of us have been programmed (by default) to pursue success somewhere outside of ourselves. We have lost sight of the fact that happiness and success is an inside game. Your ability to master your own mind and perception of reality is the key to seeing the results you want in the world around you.

Here’s the catch…

Benjamin Franklin noted that this is not for the weakhearted. It can be very hard work. Yet, the rewards are bigger and better than anything you’ve ever imagined. So, whether you’re all about the Benjamins or not, listen closely because you’re about to get a first class ticket back to the most important person on the planet: Y-O-U.

Today we have a very special episode with music artist and thought leader, Prince Ea. He has recently gained worldwide recognition for his powerful spoken word pieces highlighting how we can live with less stress, more happiness, and bigger overall success by following some basic principles that have been around for thousands of years.

The way that he packages up and delivers the information are second to none. And what’s more powerful is that it doesn’t have to be as challenging as you may think to achieve the happiness and self-awareness that has eluded so many people over the centuries. It’s never been a matter of “can you do it,” it’s really a matter of whether or not you have the right strategy in your hands.

One idea, just one idea, can dramatically change the quality of your life. The only question is, do you have the heart to take action for yourself to make it happen? My guess is (if you’ve made it this far) the answer is a resounding yes! So, just click play, get ready, and let the transformation begin.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • How great historical figures like Lao Tzu and Buddha relate to hip-hop artist today.
  • How life is actually qualifying you for the things you’ll be faced with.
  • Why your perspective is so powerful in influencing your thoughts and actions.
  • The #1 tactic you can use to deal with the haters in your life.
  • What often stops people from pursuing the things they’re passionate about.
  • The huge difference between compassion and sympathy.
  • How labeling things inherently creates conflict in our lives.
  • How I first became interested in meditation (you might laugh at this :)).
  • Why technology can prevent the creation of meaningful relationships.
  • What little technology guideline I use to keep my family connected.
  • How health and fitness relates to our mental and spiritual health.
  • What 3 step process you can use to instantly defeat stress.

    I got to your video because I follow Prince Ea. Since I have not seen your content before I almost clicked off at the beginning feeling that I was experiencing a commercial. But I pressed on and am so glad I did. You know when something just goes “aha” within you and you are aware you are right where you belong? That is what happened to me as I was watching. I’m 66 and for over 10 years I have been calling my daughters-in-law my daughters-in-love. I thought I invented that!! So when I heard you say Mother-in-Love I KNEW I was right where I was supposed to be in that/this present moment. Thank you for the excellent program! JoLyn (I haven’t been called Mother-in-Love YET, but it will happen) 🙂

    Congrats on the success that you are experiencing. LOVE that you’re sharing it, too. I’m a first-time listener. The positive energy you project to your listeners is AMAZING. You seem centered, but always open to learn about yourself. Very powerful and uplifting – I’m glad I was brought to you through a random Internet link. <3
