In this special two-part episode, I’m taking a look at the top ten interviews I’ve done over the last several years. It was incredibly difficult to narrow it down to just ten, but I think the episodes we’re revisiting are truly something special.
First, I’m going all the way back to my first episode ever — an interview with author Robert Greene. He was the perfect person to start with because, as the author of 6 international bestsellers, including The 48 Laws of Power, he’s one of the world’s foremost experts on greatness. Robert has spent his career examining history’s greatest leaders and thinkers to discover the universal keys to finding your purpose and achieving success, and I know I learned a lot from him.
Next, we’re jumping to Episode 109 for an interview with the legendary Tony Robbins. Tony was one of the top three dream guests I had in mind when I started this podcast, and while I’m still waiting to interview The Rock and Will Smith, I’m so grateful to have had the chance to sit down with Tony and learn from his genius! His charisma and business sense are unrivaled, and Tony taught me a lot about having a growth mindset.
After that, we’re going to revisit Episode 715 with one of the world’s best endurance athletes, retired Navy SEAL David Goggins. Although David has finished more than 60 ultra-marathons, triathlons, and ultra-triathlons, he says he’s not built differently from you or me. He’s just conditioned himself to ignore the limits his mind wants to place on his body. That interview blew my mind, and I’m excited to share it with you again today.
Fourth, I want to reflect on my conversation with the brilliant Brené Brown on Episode 536. Brené Brown is a world-renowned researcher, professor, author, speaker, and host, and she taught me a ton about what it really means to build authentic relationships. Things like shame, vulnerability, and belonging are hard to talk about, but Brené discusses them with wisdom, intelligence, and strength that I find truly inspiring.
And to round out part one of our 1,000th episode special, we’re going way back to Episode 36 with my friend Chris Lee. Chris is a successful leadership coach and a massive source of inspiration for me — so much so that I’ve had him on this podcast 14 times! Chris taught me a lot about visualization and its relationship to success, and I believe that much of my success took root in Chris’ wisdom.
These five guests are some of the best of all time, and I’m so excited to reflect on them today! If you’re ready to revisit some of the greatest moments in The School of Greatness history, join me on Episode 1,000!
