#38 - Living an Engaged Life w/ Ben Bernstein
Before we jump into this episode, I want to keep you posted about my book, also named Seeking Authenticity. It’s coming out later this month, October 2021! I’ll have exact dates in the coming weeks. I’ve been receiving some remarkable feedback about it so far and I’m excited to share it with you. You can find out more at my website flintmitchell.com. I’m always looking for honest feedback so if you leave a review on this podcast cast and then reach out to seekingauthenticitypodcast@gmail.com I’ll respond with some information on how to set up a call with me over the phone where we can talk 1 on 1! Now.In this episode I talk with Dr. Ben Bernstein, who also goes by “Dr. B” or “The Stress Doctor”. Ben uses his own personal experiences and formal training in performance psychology to help people overcome stress and performance anxiety and perform at their best. Maybe you have unproductive habits you’d like to kick? Or suffer from an inability to perform when the spotlight is on or the test is put in front of you? Dr. B knows how to handle that. I have known Ben for about two years now and value him in my life not only as a friend but also as an impeccably honest person. When you find people who give you legitimately honest feedback about your work and ideas, you should keep them around!

#36 - Rowing Across Oceans and Redirecting Your Life with Roz Savage

#36 - Rowing Across Oceans and Redirecting Your Life with Roz Savage
Roz Savage changed her life in her thirties, when through an environment epiphany, she completely shifted her direction from her current role in management consulting to become a world class adventurer. As you and I spent our days commuting to class or the office, she was rowing across the oceans for many months at a time, completely alone. She has completed the Big 3 oceans - the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian, and consequently become a powerful voice both for the environment and personal development. Appearing on numerous TV channels, talk shows, TED talks, and with 3 published books, the most recent of which, The Gifts of Solitude, being relevant to our situation in the pandemic, she has plenty of wonderful insight. In this conversation, I wanted to hear about her current adventure, where she has taken on a PhD. From this, we talk about her perspective on changing course in life, identifying, even if just through awareness, the areas of our life we want to redirect. She explains these thoughts with examples from her own life, and shares, what I believe to be a very inspiring message of hope - that our futures and the future of our world, are inextricably linked to our internal states of being. I had a lot of fun listening to Roz and her stories and I know you will too.

#33 - Leaving College, Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, and Embracing Every Day as a New Adventure with Zach Smith

#33 - Leaving College, Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, and Embracing Every Day as a New Adventure with Zach Smith
Zach Smith hiked the entirety of the Pacific Crest Trail, a backpacking trail that extends over 2600 miles from the Mexican border to Canadian border, trekking through deserts and high mountain ranges. He used this trek to raise thousands of dollars of support for Youth Assisting Youth, a non-profit charity aimed at providing mentors to at-risk youth. In this conversation we talk about his experience leaving college to work in construction for a year as he created new intentions, his decision to embark on the Pacific Crest Trail with nearly no prior backpacking experience, and some of the moments of solitude, joy, excitement, and even melancholy that he passed through while hiking it. Likewise we talk about mentorship, creating a mindset of determination and grit, and how the trip changed his perspective to take advantage of each day and the purpose that can be derived from it instead of looking towards finish lines far off in the future. I really appreciated listening to Zach and I think you will too, enjoy.Check out Youth Assisting Youth here:https://youthassistingyouth.comAnd another interview of Zach from Youth Assisting Youth here:https://youthassistingyouth.com/journey-youth-mental-health/-----Podcast IG: https://www.instagram.com/seekingauthenticitypodcast/Podcast Website: https://seekingauthenticity.buzzsprout.com/©Flint MitchellSpotify Podcasts Apple PodcastsLinks:iAlign Website: ialign.appPersonal Website and Book: flintmitchell.comTikTok @ialign.appYoutube @ialignInstagram: @flintmitchelldotcomEmail: ialign@ialign.app©Flint Mitchell

#32 - Surviving Everest and the Seven Summits, Setting Expectations, and Creating a Positive Self-Image with Adventurer and Author John Beede
John Beede has completed the seven summits, meaning he has climbed the tallest summit on all 7 continents, including Mt. Everest and Mt. Vinson in Antarctica. He is also a motivational speaker and author, with his new book, The Warrior Challenge: 8 Quests for Boys to Grow up with Kindness, Courage, and Grit, aimed at using his adventures and experiences to explain some of the values and insight he has learned over the years in order to create a positive impact on the youth. In this conversation John and I talk about how he got into climbing, he shares some experiences from his travels climbing on several continents, feeling the primal forces of nature and his mortality, and the realization that being on the summit of Everest was almost entirely different than any expectation he had for it. Likewise we talk about a way you might shift your perspective on being responsible, about creating positive self-talk and personal honesty, mental and even sexual health, and taking ownership for our outlooks. This really is a wonderful conversation that I thoroughly appreciated having and listening back too.
