How to stay motivated.


Do you wish there was a simple to use device that could get you motivated from sun up to sun down?  Congratulations, there is no such thing.  Motivation cant be drank, swallowed, or eaten.  The only was to get it is to create it.  As Brendon Burchard says, “a power plant doesn't have energy it generates it.”  Its the truth all of us have the ability to get motivated but its staying motivated that is the hard part.


As a firefighter I run into burning buildings all the time.  Its a crazy job but no day if you're motivated or not the fire must go out.  Sometimes in life we don't have the ability to wait to become motivated to tackle projects or to complete the mundane things needed to reach our goals.  


Fighting fires for the last 13 years made me realise there is alot of similarities between fire and motivation.  There have been times that the fire has motived me to leave the building because its soo soo hot.  Fire is motivaoin.  When you have that buring desire within your soal you have everthing you need to attack your dreams.


In the next few minutes I hope to open your motivation receptors and to assist you in answering the question, How do I stay motivated?


The first step is to understand what is motivation and why do you need it.  Motivations root word, motive, mean a “reason for action”.  This action can be known as the “why” you want to do something. Motive is the a latin word that means, “to move.”  When you look at it together motivation at its core is WHY YOU MOVE or why do you do something.


If you were thrown on an island and you were naked, cold, and afraid.  Sorry to draw such a visula picture, haha.  The first things you would want to do beore sunset would be to find food, water, shelter, and yes fire.  To create a fire from scratch is on of the most challenging things to do.  Not because rubbing two pieces of wood together is challenging but because you have never done it before.  Its the same with motivation its not that its hard its only hard because you never really broke it down.  


The first time you tried anything it took you a while but look at now you are able to write, ride a bike, and tie your shoes.  Yes very simple now but when you were 5 it seemed impossible.  Motivation is the same way when you know how to get motivated everything else will fall into place.


To help you learn this, come on lets be serious Jake I just want to know how to get motivated I dont want to learn, If I just tell you you will forget but if I teach you you will remember for a lifetime.


Motivation has three parts to it.  Going back to our stranded on an island theory, think if you were to start a fire what would you need but more importantly what three parts are needed to create a fire?


  1. Heat
  2. Oxygen
  3. Fuel


Wait what about a lighter, newspaper, and logs?  Yes we need those but the three parts listed above are the simplest form of fire.  


These three pieces are piece of the fire triangle.  The fire triangle is the three simplest parts of fire and as we all know fire can either make you feel cozy or wipe out thousands of square miles of forest.  If you craving the kind of motivation that can wipe out a forest figuratively speaking then here I suggest you learn this.


We need heat, fuel, and oxygen to create our forest fire of motivation.  


Step 1:

To generate heat grab two sticks one for aspiration and second for hope.  Once you have the two start to rub them together.  Once you see smoke that means heat is getting generated and when you see smoke fire will soon follow.  In the heat phase we are looking for two ideas when working together make the first step into making a raging fire.


Aspiration is a word that describes your want to do something.  If you're motivated that means you're wanting to get something in your life.  If you know what the something is then you on your way.  But if you dont have that passion or want for something your aspiration stick won't generate the heat needed to create that fire.  You cant have a kinda, sorta, maybe, or whatever kind of attitude towards what you desire.  You must have blowtorch mentality that you really really really want it.  


Action Plan For Aspiration:


-Figure what do you really want.  Motivated people know where they want to go if you know then move on if not then ask yourself the following bullet points.

-What is your “Why”, ask yourself why do you want this what is the outcome.  Asking yourself great question will lead to great answers a great ted talk on this is Simon Seneck What is your why?

-If you had motvation then lost it reminde yourself of why you had it in the first place.  Many of us forget the road we wanted to take so we just took an easy one.  Find that road that you fireed up on and reimerse yourself into that moment.  

-Still no answers to find you aspiration I would suggest you journal.  Journaling aobut what you want is a great exercise to open your mind to what you crave in your life.  Is it better relationshiop, job, more $, or freedom?  Only you can decide figure this out.  



The stick to rub with aspiration is hope. Hope needs to be present for our aspiration to come to life.  Surprisingly hope is more than just skipping through a meadow.  Hope is specifically understanding that you have both the determination and the path to get your why, desire, or goal.  Hope is a very powerful word and I suggest you try to become more hopeful in your life.


Action Plan For Hope:


-Visualize your aspiration in your mind over and over.  Yes might sound a tad zen but visualization works.  Don't belive me do a quick google search and you will find everone from gold medal athletes, actors, classical performers, and top level executives all visulize.  Do you want to reach your aspiration?  Visulize!

-Write out a rough draft of your action plan to obtain your aspiration.  It may not be the correct path but its somehting to get you moing.

-If there are big road blocks in your way dont worry about then identify them, wire them down, and think about them.  Dont stress about these roadblaocks as your path gets cleared the answer will come to battle these issues.


Aspiration x Hope = Heat (part 1 of an internal forest fire)

Step 2:

To get super hot and intense fire you just don't add more fuel but you need to key is to give it more oxygen it.  Just like a blowtorch to get that super hot intense blue flame that can melt steel you don't give it more fule you give it more oxygen.  100% pure Oxygen will create the extreme flame needed to melt through steel.  To get that oxygen moving into your motivation you two things the right mindset and the perfect surroundings to make your world light up.

Right Mindset

100% pure oxygen if very flammable and if handled incorrectly will explode.  Just like your mindset if you don't take care of it your mind will can do more bad than good towards your motivation.  People who achieve amazing things are always positive, enthusiastic, and controlling their thoughts everyday.

These people understand that thoughts become things and choosing the correct thoughts and behaviors they create the might mixture of motivation to achieve their goals.   Changing your mindset is not easy and it takes time but once you harness it you can make it so intense that it will burn through any obstacle in your way.   


Action Plan For Creating A Positive Mindset:


-Try to reduce all media in your life.  If something big happens you will know about.  Media take up your time and distracts your mind from focusing on what you really want in your life.

-Delete ridiculous things from social media.  You can Either a specific person or company from your timeline or select to reduce the amount of exposure they show up on your stream.  Hint take control of your social meida dont let it control you.

-Turn your car into a college on wheels.  Instead of listening to the radio filled with commercials play a podcast like Operation Self Reset, listen to a book on tape, or play soft classical or meditation music so you can organize your next plan of action towards reaching your goal.  


Create an awesome surrounding:

Creating a perfect surrounding is the last key component to maxamiszing your motivaion.  The reason why forest fires wipe out thousands of miles is because the fire has all the oxygen it needs and there are no obstacles holding it back.  Once that fire gets started there is very little you can do to stop it.  That is the same kind of mentality you need when you are setting up your surroundings.  Create a space that give you the opportunity to succeed.  Fire travels to the place of least resistance.  Make your goal easy to achieve by setting up your physical and mental surrounding.    


Action Plan For Creating A Perfect Surrounding:

-Surround yourself with people that light you up and are trying to achieve the same kind of goal as you.  We are pack creatures bring people into your life that will raise you up when you get off track and progress togher to reach that epic goal.

-Create a powerful space in your home that when you walk into it you know its time to get your motivation on.  Just like the Notre Dame football team has a sign that they hit when the team leave the locker room, “Play like a champion”  create that same type of atmosphere in your life.

-Remove all things that dont help your progress towards your goal. Example if you are motivated to loose weight dont have pictures of the old you.  It will make you think of who you were then who you strive to become.

-Create a healthy lifestyle full of fresh greens, whole foods,  water, and healthy snacks like Lara Bar.  (my favorite), and exercize.  When you body is full of energy there is no stopping you just like a forest fire


Mindset x Surrounding = Oxygenation


Step 3:

You just created some heat from your sticks of aspiration and hope.  Heat creates smoke and its start to show it's time to nurse that smoke so we can start to see that flame pop through.  To make sure fire will form we need to keep rubbing the sticks of sticks of aspiration and hope and give this soon to be fire some concentration and effort.  



You will never get that fire to show if you don't give it 100% concentration. As my mentor Tolly Burkan told me, “Pay Attention!” Pay attention on what it is you are trying to achieve.  In your life there are tons of distractions don't forget what you're trying to go after.  Motivation can only come if you concentrate on the steps needed to achieve it.  Many people lose motivation because in the moment they are excited they have all the ideas, formulas, and to do list.  When the next day hits they forget all the support information and the motivation slips away.  That is because they lost concentration and they didnt pay attention 100% of the time.  This can be exhausting for some but that is why some people reach there goals and some dont.  If you break your concentration you lose the battle. Stay focused and dig deeper that is where the forest fire lies.


Action Plan For Concentration:


-Continuously concentrate on your “why”.  Know what you want and write it down. The more you write it the more it will anchor into your subconscious and unconscious mind of what it is you really want.

-Read a preplanned statement when you wake up before you go to bed.  I call this the Storybook method.

-Set reminders on your phone every 20-30min to pop up to deral your current thinking so you are thinking about your why, goal, or ambition.

-Place post notes on your mirror or in your car.  Seeing physical notes written from you is another approach to creating motivation anchors in your life.

-Get or create a support group to remind you of what your going for.  



The second part to fuel the fire is to put in effort or know as the “how”.  If you want to see a fire grow you must gather the fuel needed for it to thrive that's your effort.  When the fire starts to come alive and you don't have the material for it to burn you will lose it and it will die.  The same applies to your motivation you need to put in effort towards it everyday.  


Effort is needed to achieve your aspiration and it seems so obvious because it is.  As Jim Rohn said, “ the easy things to do are also easy not to do.”  Effort is not always easy but its easy to think of and when you think without action you don't do.   If you want to create that raging internal fire you must go and find the wood everyday no matter what.  


Action Plan For Effort:

-First you must understand that effort is not a feeling.  Effort is action.  If you go off of your feelings you will never get the aspiration you want.  You can not feel your way through this world.  If you do you will not have the motivation.

-Set up a to do / action list to achieve your goal the night before you go to bed.  When you wake follow that plan and when the day ends make a new list.

-Figure out the skills you dont have to make your why come to life.  Take time out of your day to first find where and how you learn that skill then to actually go and do it.

-Start to become comfortable with the uncomfortable.  Effort will push you outside your comfortable box.  Try your best to stretch yourself each day.  A rubber band is useless unless it stretches, the same applies to you.


Concentration + Effort = Fuel

The mission of Venture Companion is to help people understand their purpose and act on their values. This program is designed to infuse humanity into our data driven culture. Numbers are a wonderful tool for assessing the effectiveness of actions: They provide objective measurements of progress and concrete milestones to work towards. However, we need to be reminded that goals should be defined by aspirations that serve values, not numbers. When we forget this, we prioritize test scores over learning, weight over health, ledgers over prosperity, deadlines over collaboration, production over innovation, and scale over quality. We know we should see numbers as indicators of progress towards our aspirations, but when quantifiers are stated as the goal we lose perspective of their true value. When values take a backseat to numbers, shortcuts and creative rule interpretations become normative and goal attainment is unfulfilling. Venture Companion provides the structure needed to serve your values through your actions.


Justin Bentley-Melle is dedicated to maximizing effective service by promoting the power of the informed practitioner. As an experienced educator he has seen time and again that the best solutions come from those that deliver on the plans. When engaged with leadership, those nearest to the action have the best understanding of the “who, what, why, when, where, and how” of the mission.


Justin Bentley-Melle began writing Venture Companion as a way to connect with and support his daughter as she entered adolescence. The scope of this work evolved as his mother, who was coping with transitions in retirement, took an interest in this work. Justin’s engagement in educational leadership added additional insights as administrators and staff welcomed guidance based on Venture Companion concepts and processes.


Venture Companion was designed to support meaningful growth for individuals and organizations.  Please contribute your insights and experiences through the Venture Companion Facebook page or by contacting Justin Bentley-Melle at Justin@VentureCompanion.com. Your input will be put to good use providing valuable content for our Venture Companion community.

If you are a Founder who loves the company you started, and you want to be the CEO that pilots it to sustained success, you’re in the right place!

My name is Todd Uterstaedt, and I want to take the mystery, confusion, heartache, and stress out of your transition from Founder to CEO. If you have ever asked yourself:

  • How do I hire the best people for my team and create an awesome culture?
  • How do I communicate vision and strategy to my team when it can change weekly and monthly?
  • How do I separate personal critiquing from professional development?
  • How do I develop myself while I’m trying to build my team?
  • How do I figure out what my work priorities are now that we have proof of concept?

Or maybe you just want to be part of a supportive community that understands how lonely it can be when shifting from Founder to CEO

….then this is THE place for you.

Marc Barros, former CEO of Contour, wrote, “I didn’t understand, until it was over, just how hard the transition is from a Founder to CEO. A completely different role from getting a company off the ground…few people know how to teach it, even less think about developing you…” I’m the exception. YOU matter to me.

I believe you CAN make the leap and grow as a leader WHILE you grow your company. It’s not easy. But, it isn’t as hard as some make it out to be. I love helping Founders, like you, make the successful shift to CEO by boosting your leadership capabilities, confidence, and mindset so that you can:

  • Build, scale, and lead your company commensurate with your dreams and aspirations.
  • Maintain control of your company.
  • Enhance your company’s valuation for possible succession or a profitable exit.

Do you really have the time to read the latest boring business book, attend tedious classes, or wade through your favorite founder’s blog in search of actionable insights?

As a former Army officer, Corporate VP, and Founder of two successful startups [well, four if you include my kids :)], my life’s mission is to bring you the most practical and hugely beneficial how-to tips, tricks, and techniques that solve the immediate and pressing issues you encounter as you move from Founder to CEO.

Todd BakerWhy do I care so much? As a young soldier stationed in Berlin, Germany after The Wall fell, I personally saw the exuberant joy of people who tasted freedom for the first time in their lives. For many, that fresh sense of freedom led them to found new businesses that changed their lives and the many lives their companies touched. You understand, don’t you? You understand that special sense of freedom to create and have an impact on the world. That’s why I want to work with you. Our challenge is to elevate your ability to lead to the same level as your motivation to create.

I’m here to help bridge that gap. I approach this mission with the attitude that no one person has all the answers. Yes, I have coached many Founders like you to take action and build great companies, and I’ve been fortunate to appear in The Wall Street Journal, Inc. Magazine and other media outlets. But, many of you have told me that you just want a reliable source that makes it fun, easy, and practical to build your business and quickly and successfully move from Founder to CEO. And, that’s exactly what I’m doing as I collect, curate, and create the very best support for you. Let’s do this together.

Josh Rivedal moved from New Jersey to New York City at the age of 21 to tackle the world of fame, fortune, and the Broadway stage...in what he thought would be a stepping stone to Hollywood and a star on the walk of fame.

Eight years later and through a series of remarkable life events, a bad economy, and mixture of collegiate and self-education; Josh reinvented himself as an international public speaker, author, playwright, theatre producer, educator, marketing consultant, and arts entrepreneur. See his professional bio for details, and his book The Gospel According to Josh: A 28 Gentile Bar Mitzvah for the full story.

Heʼs a mixture of creative and logic, business and pleasure, local-centric and global minded. As a public speaker his primary focus is on suicide prevention; speeches and seminars on his experiences as a survivor of loss, an attempt survivor, and youth suicide prevention—often (but not always) paired with his one-man show Kicking My Blue Genes in the Butt (based on his book The Gospel According to Josh) He also speaks on diversity, mental health, arts marketing, small business marketing, (arts) entrepreneurship, and resiliency paired with improv theater. Through Artful Coaching Resources, he aims to help small business owners and artist entrepreneurs build their careers and businesses to profitability and to the size and style they prefer. Through his partnership with Skookum Hill, a publishing, consultancy, and theatre production firm that creates and acquires entertainment through film, print, and theatre—he creates content that inspires, educates, entertains, and transforms. As founder and executive director of The i'Mpossible Project, he provides advocacy, entertainment, seminars, and peer-to-peer education on suicide prevention, mental health, storytelling, and diversity.

He has previously served on the board of directors for the New York City chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and is currently an advisory board member for Elijahʼs Journey: A Jewish Response to Suicide Prevention.

Free Webinar on December 30th, 2015 @ 8pm CST / 9pm EST


As you know 2016 is a few weeks away and I wanted to do something special for the listeners of Operation Self Reset. Over the past 2.5 years OSR Podcast has been listened to in over 163 countries and has been downloaded over 1.2 million times.


This could not have happened without YOU. Thank you! (I would hug you but I will save that for when we meet in person.)


For the first time ever I am launching a group coaching program called Self Reset Mastery.


A few months ago I started sharing my cell phone number. Yes, people still think I am crazy for doing this but the phone calls and texts I have received were unbelievable! People from all around the world have reached out to me. In each interaction the same theme was occurring time and time again.


“The information is great but I just can’t seem to reach goals! What am I doing wrong?”


“I don’t have a close friend or family member who wants to be my accountability partner. Where can I find someone?”


“Your 1-on-1 coaching is too expensive. Is there another way I can ask you questions to help me improve?”


The 3 top concerns are

  1. reaching goals
  2. being held accountable
  3. having access to me at a lower price point than my private 1-on-1 coaching


That is when I thought to bring only the 30 most dedicated people into one group. Each month we will have webinars on key topics, you can ask me personal questions and get answers, and you will be held accountable because I will pair each member up with two to three other members to create a mastermind group.


Like I said, this will only be for 30 awesome people. If you’re interested, please tune in to the webinar that will be held live on December 30 at 7p.m. CST / 8p.m. EST. (Links to the webinar will be sent out the night of the event.)

If you are unable to join, there will be a recording of the webinar.


Self Reset Mastery will start on the night of 1-1-2016.


Hope to see you on the inside!

We have many common names for willpower: determination, drive, resolve, self-discipline, self-control. But psychologists characterize willpower, or self-control, in more specific ways. According to most psychological scientists, willpower can be defined as:

  • The ability to delay gratification, resisting short-term temptations in order to meet long-term goals.
  • The capacity to override an unwanted thought, feeling or impulse.
  • The ability to employ a “cool” cognitive system of behavior rather than a “hot” emotional system.
  • Conscious, effortful regulation of the self by the self.
  • A limited resource capable of being depleted.

Fire worship, practiced as a rite of purification, healing, initiation and transcendence, has been a long thread in the cultural tapestry of our planet. Many tribal people had, or have, rituals and ceremonies to honor the sacred aspect of fire – honoring its gifts and acknowledging its transformative power. Fire worship and firewalking has nourished and warmed the human spirit since the dawning of humankind.  In contemporary society,  firewalking has evolved into a powerful tool for self-realization and empowerment.

Many of the natural environments of our planet are dependent on the cleansing and purifying aspects of fire; wildfires clear the way for new growth, which many animal and plant species depend upon for survival. Just as the planet requires fire for renewal, so does the human spirit, as we are always intrinsically connected with this earth from which we grew. Our relationship to fire is as old as the human race. Recent evidence suggests that Australopithecus controlled fire nearly a million and half years ago.

The beginnings of firewalking are lost in the annals of history, but we do know that Africa, often considered the birthplace of humankind, has a long history of firewalking and fire dancing. The African-born Hindus walk on fire regularly as part of important religious festivals and !Kung Bushmen of the Kalahari desert have firewalked since their tribal beginnings. The !Kung use fire in their powerful healing ceremonies.

In 1977, anthropologist Laurens van der Post published an account of his travels to Africa to study the !Kung and was astonished when witness to their healing fire dances. And, Richard Katz, a Harvard psychologist and anthropologist, reports that the !Kung use the fire to heat up their energy, which they call n/um: Dancers will go in the fire, walk in it, put their heads in it, pick up the coals and rub them over their hands and body… when the n/um (or energy) in the body is boiling and as hot as the fire, they will not be burned. As the n/um intensifies in the healers they experience an enhanced consciousness called !kia , during which they heal all those at the dance.

In Bali, the mystical South Sea island, it is not the men who dance on the fire, but young girls. In India, Tibet, Sri Lanka, China, Japan and Argentina, to mention a few, people dance and walk, joyously, solemnly, exuberantly, or devotionally across fire. In the Hindu fire ceremony Agni Hotra, fire is used to purify the physical and spiritual atmosphere and in Peru the flame is used to spiritually uplift participants in the fire-ceremony.

The oldest recorded firewalk was over 4000 years ago in India. Two Brahmin priests were competing to see who could walk further, one managed to do so and his feat was written down in the historical records of that time.

In a 17th century letter a Jesuit priest, Father Le Jeune, writes to his superior, telling of a healing firewalk he witnessed among the North American Indians. He reports of a sick woman walking through two or three hundred fires with bare legs and feet, not only without burning, but all the while complaining about the lack of heat she was feeling.

Some 30 years later, Father Marquette reported similar firewalks among the Ottawa Indians and Jonathan Carver writes in his 1802 book Travels in North America that one of the most astounding sights he saw was the parade of warriors who would “walk naked through a fire… with apparent immunity”.

Other North American Indians who were known to have shamanic traditions which included fire handling were the Fox, Menomini, Kere, Blackfeet and particularly the Zuni, who had, and some claim still have, a “great fire fraternity”. The Kahunas, or native priests of the Hawaiian Islands, had powerful practices of lava waking. All around this little globe people rely on their spiritual kinship with this dynamic element to bring them closer to their true nature and, through touching the fire of their spirit, feel renewed and healed.

Firewalking in Modern Times

I am often called the mother or originator of the firewalking movement. Given the history of firewalking, as practiced throughout recorded time on nearly every continent on the planet, that seems a rather unlikely title, quite like calling myself the mother of the human race because I have given birth to children.

What I will take credit for is bringing firewalking into the public eye and allowing it to re-emerge in Western culture as a practice for people who are exploring consciousness and personal power.

Through more than two decades of teaching firewalking and firewalk instructors in the United States and abroad, I have had the honor of developing a modern comprehension of this ancient ritual and training others so this time-tested practice could also benefit the modern era.

Incorporating firewalking into my seminars and teaching began when I returned from a personal pilgrimage to India in 1981. The following spring I walked on fire for the first time with Tolly Burkan. I realized immediately what a powerful tool firewalking could be in a seminar setting if truly explored and developed.

At the time I was introduced to firewalking it was sometimes used as a surprise beginning to small weekend retreats where the participants were asked to keep it secret after taking part in the event. In these early settings, much to the shock of his group, Tolly would whip off his socks and shoes after singing around a campfire and quickly cross the coals.

The entire “teaching” of how to walk on fire I witnessed back then amounted to 9 words, “do what I do and you won’t get burned” …and a smile. Modern firewalking has come a long way since then!

Because of the quality and emphasis on safety in modern firewalking, when asked about the birth of the modern firewalking movement, I hesitate to reply that Tolly trained me to firewalk. A more equable answer is that both Tolly and I were “shown” firewalking, but we created the seed of a powerful seminar built around this ancient ritual together.

In the beginning we combined tools from both of our backgrounds to create the first large public workshops. We developed the training for firewalk instructors two years later and formed a somewhat fiery, short-lived but productive partnership that lasted four years.

I had been leading workshops internationally and had developed the Spiritual Reality Training, a weeklong intensive, which later was to become the base of our Firewalk Instructor’s Training. The first Firewalk Instructor’s Training was held in 1984. In 1984 I also incorporated my company, SUNDOOR. Tolly and I dissolved our partnership in 1986 and he retired from teaching public firewalking and firewalk instructors until the turn of the century.

My memories of the early beginnings of modern firewalking, the experimentation, research and exploration that we undertook in the early 80’s are much cherished. We explored which woods were best, if one could walk on bark, how deep and long the coal-bed should be, and the ideal mental state people should be in when firewalking. The question we answered was:  How do we take this potentially dangerous activity and make it both safe and powerful for Western people?

Although those early years were difficult at times, those raw experiences provided the seed from which I developed the modern ritual, as it is known today, by continuing for these last two decades to explore and teach and train. Now as I teach with the support of my expert staff and Steve Brougher, my partner of 16 years, by my side, the firewalk has matured into a true vehicle for transformation.

During the booming economics of the early nineties, the firewalk caught the attention of managers and corporations as a way to inspire creativity and empower visions of higher horizons in their employees. Corporations as diverse as Microsoft, Coca-Cola, American Express and Pierce-Waterhouse participated in firewalks with great success. After the 11th of September 2001, I received an e-mail from an American Express employee in New York expressing her gratitude with the words, “I don’t know how we would have survived these last few weeks without the tools you gave us”. The American Express building was damaged in the catastrophe and they were at the heart of the disaster.

The firewalk was touching a new culture, from small spiritual groups to thousands in corporate conferences. The firewalk as a tool for personal empowerment and a ritual for spiritual communion had been born in the West.

SUNDOOR’s International Firewalking School has continued to grow. For nearly three decades my staff, the SUNDOOR Master Firewalk Instructors, and I, have been training instructors around the planet. SUNDOOR now has firewalk instructors doing excellent work all over the globe and offices in numerous countries worldwide.

This organization that I began in the early 1980s has grown into a large international community that is not only the most experienced and wide-reaching school for firewalking but is sponsoring a host of other exciting activities as well.

The name SUNDOOR comes from an Inuit teaching. Ancient myth says that there are seven doors to pass through on the path of spiritual development. The SUNDOOR is the seventh and final door on this journey to awakening. I had little idea of the beauty and transcendent power of the firewalk when I named my company, but in these years of witnessing thousands of people crossing the fire and using that experience as a portal to their spirit, I now know it was aptly named.

Through SUNDOOR I have attempted to keep the ancient heritage of firewalking pure in our courses. The experience people are having is truly remarkable. The firewalk is allowing people in western cultures to experience a depth of healing, inspiration and life altering change that is not usually available to us. Despite this, I realize that we have only just begun to explore the fantastic potential of this ancient ritual and am truly excited to see where this ancient path of fire will lead us in the future.

5 levels of leadership, ideas taken from John Maxwell



Ideas taken from John Maxwell, johnmaxwell.com


One of the most established authorities on leadership writing today, John C. Maxwell speaks to over 350,000 people each year and his most popular topic is THE FIVE LEVELS OF LEADERSHIP, which he now shares with readers.

The five levels include:
1. Position - People follow because they have to.
2. Permission - People follow because they want to.
3. Production - People follow because of what you have done for the organization.
4. Person Development - People follow because of what you have done for them personally.
5. Pinnacle - People follow because of who you are and what you represent.

Through in-depth explanations and examples, Maxwell will describe each stage and show readers how they can move to the next level to become more influential, respected, and successful leaders.

How do I turn my life around? Why can’t I get ahead? What exactly do I need to do to be happy and content in life?

If you’re searching for answers to any of these questions—or dozens of others like them—keep going. You won’t find them in this book. In fact, you won’t find them in any book, because, quite simply, there are no easy answers. You have to work to find them—and the answers are different for each individual.

No Easy Answers is Barry Mangione’s highly personal, profoundly inspirational account of how he transformed his life and went from being depressed, divorced, bankrupt, alcoholic, and on the verge of suicide to being a happy and successful husband, father, artist, and advocate.

He offers his story as a source of hope and guidance, not as a step-by-step process or as the answer or secret to happiness. His story is framed around the questions that helped him transform himself and his life. By asking yourself these questions, you can begin to gain the self-awareness you need to achieve self-improvement.

Emphasizing honesty, responsibility, and personal empowerment, this book helps you ask the questions with which to begin transforming your own life.

Growing up, I often felt trapped in a really bad nightmare — and I wanted to wake up.

But tough times build strong character, and I was determined to survive the school bullies and the mean streets of my neighborhood. That’s how I discovered martial arts, and set the course for the rest of my life. If I hadn’t started training in karate and boxing, I wouldn’t be standing today in front of business leaders, entrepreneurs, and other success-minded people . . . coaching them on how to tap into their inner game.

Things turned rough in my teens. My abusive, alcoholic mother kicked me out of the house at 17 and, as a result, I never finished high school. I found myself sleeping on the streets with less than $20 in my pocket — yet today I consult with leaders of industry, train top security forces, and run my own international business. Martial arts taught me to be resilient, to embrace my fears, to develop laser-like focus, and to never give up. Having developed those qualities (I had to!), I went back to school, put myself through college, and currently completing my Ph.D in Embodied Leadership.

Having developed those qualities (I had to!), I went back to school, put myself through college, and currently completing my Ph.D in Embodied Leadersh, I have taught special-force military operators and law enforcement officers how to develop an unstoppable mind, needed for success on the battlefield, or on city streets, and how to survive when all else fails. You see, I did wake up from that nightmare. What I learned on the mat as a martial artist, helped me not only take on those tough, mean streets of Johannesburg, but it empowered me to take on life, full throttle, and to succeed.

What I learned, and what I teach my clients today, may surprise you. Being tough is not about aggression, violence, or killer instinct. In fact, everything I teach is the complete opposite: it’s about having a Buddha mind, and a Warrior body — Zen in the midst of chaos. Most important it works! It worked for me, and it works for my clients not only on the dojo floor, but in their lives and careers. My website is not only about the hard-learned lessons that allowed me to become a successful martial artist, coach, and entrepreneur — but also how it can enable anyone (hopefully you the reader) to successfully take on the martial arts of everyday life and win.

My motto has always been: “Performance is performance” — meaning it doesn’t matter whether it is in the ring, where “performance” shows up as self-defense, in the boardroom during tough negotiations, or, indeed, at home dealing with everyday domestic challenges (I now often find myself negotiating with my teenage son).

The ingredients for successful performance — in all areas of life — transcend the situation. The “inner tools” that shape success are perennial and universal. That’s what I discovered as I struggled to survive on the mean streets, and then developed into a system to help myself and my clients thrive, as we face the inevitable challenges of today’s competitive world. This is what this website is about!

101 Find your Zen, The Utopia Life

You’re here because you believe that dreams are worth pursuing.

Perfect. I think you’ll enjoy the site and content, because that’s what drives me. I believe a meaningful life is one of progress, growth, and iteration—from one good thing to another.

And if you don’t share that perspective, I hope you’ll come to embrace it while you’re here.

My parents are the bravest people I know, fleeing Vietnam when I was 6-months-old. We made it to refugee camp in Indonesia before being accepted into Australia. They were striving for a better life; for happiness, for meaning—for a utopian life.

That’s the heart-beat of our human experience. I’m passionate about sparking and sustaining that pursuit in your life.

My journey has included representing Nova Scotia at the National Canadian Rugby Championships; a chef at a 5-Star hotel in Brisbane and fine-dining establishment in Texas, where I also finished my BA in Humanities; and an international Muay Thai athlete living in Thailand for 18 months.

Currently, I’m completing my Masters in Psychotherapy, so consider this site your free psychotherapy session.

I want to leave you with the question that drove my parents to flee Vietnam, and the question that has fueled my journey: What does Your Utopian Life look like?

Confronting that question is the start of an amazing journey for you. That’s the mission of this site; that you would dream, believe, create, and succeed toward your utopia.

Few people will easily admit to taking pleasure in the misfortunes of others. But who doesn't enjoy it when an arrogant but untalented contestant is humiliated on American Idol, or when the embarrassing vice of a self-righteous politician is exposed, or even when an envied friend suffers a small setback? The truth is that joy in someone else's pain--known by the German word schadenfreude--permeates our society.

In The Joy of Pain, psychologist Richard Smith, one of the world's foremost authorities on envy and shame, sheds much light on a feeling we dare not admit. Smith argues that schadenfreude is a natural human emotion, one worth taking a closer look at, as it reveals much about who we are as human beings. We have a passion for justice. Sometimes, schadenfreude can feel like getting one's revenge, when the suffering person has previously harmed us. But most of us are also motivated to feel good about ourselves, Smith notes, and look for ways to maintain a positive sense of self. One common way to do this is to compare ourselves to others and find areas where we are better. Similarly, the downfall of others--especially when they have seemed superior to us--can lead to a boost in our self-esteem, a lessening of feelings of inferiority. This is often at the root of schadenfreude. As the author points out, most instances of schadenfreude are harmless, on par with the pleasures of light gossip. Yet we must also be mindful that envy can motivate, without full awareness, the engineering of the misfortune we delight in. And envy-induced aggression can take us into dark territory indeed, as Smith shows as he examines the role of envy and schadenfreude in the Nazi persecution of the Jews.

Filled with engaging examples of schadenfreude, from popular reality shows to the Duke-Kentucky basketball rivalry, The Joy of Pain provides an intriguing glimpse into a hidden corner of the human psyche.

After 15 years as a professional educator, inspiring students and fellow educators, I decided enough was enough (not getting a lunch, being scolded for doing what’s right for children, and not being able to go to the bathroom when I needed to were just three of the deciding factors!). I knew at a soul level that I had to find a way to blend my love of the written word and my motivating, upbeat leadership style into something that would allow me to help others in a way the school system wouldn’t.

In just six months, I planned my exit, left my career as a tenured teacher, and launched my own company (The Writing Whisperer) because I knew I could no longer keep my passion and truth locked away. I now work with small business owners and writers in a variety of formats, some of which include content marketing, copywriting, branding word work, private memoir coaching, and journaling. My main mission is help writers of all varieties tap into the power of using their words to spread their messages, both in business and personal writing.

I am also passionate about advocating for doing what is right for our nation’s children and teachers. Because I left the public education system, I can now talk openly about the issues teachers are facing day in and day out, without fear of repercussion. I am a writer for The Huffington Post, as well as a professor at Brooklyn College. Above all, I am a teacher for life.

When I’m not speaking, teaching, or helping people write, I love to spend time with my husband Michael and my cat Shakti, as well as run long distances, bike the busy city streets, travel to far away lands, make tasty vegan meals, and live life to the fullest —my own way.

Hi, I’m Rob Scott and I’m a coach who helps people shift, and dramatically break through.

Is there a part of you that knows you want to change, and you know it’d be better for you if you did, and yet you still don’t do it?

Maybe you feel unfulfilled, like you’re never really going to be able to live out your dreams.

Or maybe you’re struggling to succeed to the level you really want to, and you’d like to make more money, or you’d like to impact the world, but on some level you just feel stuck.


Humanity Has a Core Problem

You see, I’ve discovered that humanity has a core problem, and chances are you’ve got this problem and you don’t even know it. The problem is the limit of our current identity.  Let me explain: Whatever results you have in life are precisely because you think that’s what you deserve.  If you make $100k, that’s because you have a $100k mentality. If people always violate your trust, it’s because you have a mentality that invites that.

See, those people that are getting the results that you want, they literally think different thoughts. They take different actions, they have different habits and behaviors.  And if I ask people why they don’t do those things, they answer, “I’m on my way to becoming like them,” but they don’t realize they’re trying to live a $1M lifestyle with a $100k mentality.

So to change and really get dramatically different results in our life, we need to change our very identity. We literally need to become someone new, and we resist this very deeply.

We Need to Change Our Very Identity

I’m the expert that helps people break through, change, and literally evolve their consciousness. This is beyond just mindset shifting. I shift your very identity and I’m world-class at this. I shift people who think they’ll never be a successful entrepreneur and turn them into massively successful entrepreneurs. I shift people who think they’ll never have success and turn them into incredible success stories.

Let me tell you a story about somebody who I helped shift long ago and explain what huge results this can lead to. But I want to warn you, the beginning of this story is pretty graphic.

This person I worked with had been violently and repeatedly raped from the age of three to around eight years old. This left him feeling completely empty. So full of shame, it was incredibly difficult for him to feel safe or trust anybody at all. In fact, to deal with this trauma, this young boy’s brain almost split into multiple personalities so that he could detach and protect himself when he was being seriously abused.

As you might imagine, he turned to drugs and alcohol to mask the pain, trying drugs as early as seven years old. By his late teens and early 20’s, it had gotten so bad that he was in and out of jails, institutions, halfway houses and he ended up homeless, and living on the streets.

He Was Failing at Everything...

He was failing at everything, his entire life was a mess and after all he’d been through, he had every reason to hate the world.

But he finally realized if he didn’t change, he was going to die.

This is when I helped him have a simple mindset shift that changed everything.  He realized that for a long time it was his mindset that had been the biggest problem he faced.  In that one moment, we changed his very identity, and what happened next was incredible.

First thing he did was get a simple temp job, and with this new perspective, he got promotions really fast.

In just a few years, he went from homeless, all the way to becoming the  youngest vice president at a company in Philadelphia. He had no credentials, no college degree, no nothing, just knowing how to create value and manage himself and others.

Around 2005, he started a podcast to share his ideas on how to change, and thousands of people all over the world started signing up. They started asking him for coaching and his most important career began.

This Person is Me

You see, this person is me and I’ve spent the last decade of my life working with thousands of people, shifting their identities, and showing them how to evolve their consciousness and get incredible results across all areas of their businesses, their health, their relationships, and their entire lives.

I personally have been awake now for more than 20 years, and I’ve been helping others wake up for more than a decade.

I help my clients to build huge businesses. I’ve helped craft congressional testimony multiple times which has lead to national policy reform here in America. I have thousands of followers that I’m blessed to interact with. I’m the coach other coaches come to in order to shift themselves and to learn how to do even deeper work with their clients.

People that work with me have massive breakthroughs of more money, more health, more time and quite simply, more happiness and fulfillment.

I want to share with you how fulfilled I am able to be in my life right now. I’m literally living the dream. I’m deeply present, I love my partner, I love my work and thankfully, I’m really successful at it.

I Can Help You Change

Listen, if I can come from the depths of dysfunction, after years of rape, abuse, addiction, and homelessness – the things most people don’t survive let alone thrive from – and create this kind of success for myself and for others – then you can change to your next level too.

My name is Rob Scott, and nothing would make me happier than helping you shift, and achieve all the results you want in your life. If I can help you with anything at all, please let me know.  Be well, and I hope to talk with you soon.

Ready to change right now?
