MW078 — Author and Behavior Change Specialist, Bryan Falchuk: Making Changes When it Feels Impossible

They did it, why can’t I? You’ve heard those heroic stories of people who found their success in health, finances, careers, relationships — whatever it was — in times that seemed impossible. And yet sometimes it feels like no matter how much you’ve tried, you’ve come up short, making the change seem even all the more out of reach.

Bryan Falchuk, bestselling author, Behavior Change Specialist, and certified personal trainer, is here to share a transformative new way to achieving any and all your life goals.   

Bryan went from being obese and depressed to running marathons. He faced nearly losing his wife to illness while their young son watched, to turning everything around. He got his Masters in Business from Dartmouth and rose to a senior executive position in a successful business. He’s transformed his life and developed an approach to help others do the same that he teaches in his bestselling book, Do A Day. Today he shares that philosophy with you.

Whether your goal’s big or small, you don’t need a life-altering event to get you on the right track and keep you there. Start by listening to Bryan’s inspiring advice and be on your way to achieving your greatness!

Key takeaways:

The big realization. To truly change you need to change your story. Not the person you are, but the story you tell yourself. Those bad habits that are clouding your story, what do they really say about how you’re feeling? The REAL reason you’ve been delaying to start your new chapter…[5:21].

The turning point. You’re on what feels like a non-stop roller coaster where one thing after another hits you and you’re wondering, will this ride EVER end? The answer is YES! You can stop this crazy ride without having to be at risk of losing everything. Try THIS to make it all stop and move forward… [13:26].

The 24-hour motto. You want to lose weight, you want to be a better parent/spouse, you want a better job, you want to like yourself more – whatever the goal, you need the motivation and it NEEDS to stick this time around. Take action today by learning THIS one lesson…[26:26].

Tune in and turn the volume up for a dose of inspiration and life lessons. That’s how we Live Lead and Play! 

Meet the host, Luke Iorio
All you really need to know is this: Luke Iorio is a dad, a spouse, an entrepreneur, a conscious growth strategist, coach, blogger, podcaster, a wide-angled observer, and enthusiastic participant in the game of life who seeks to ask and answer, “What’s truly possible?”
So where does that all come from? Well, for that we need to answer this: How does a shy kid from the suburbs of New Jersey grow up to become a conscious strategist, sought-after coach and speaker, and disrupter of life’s “good enough” status quo?
In a nutshell, Luke intentionally pushed through some of his most palpable moments, or what he calls inflection points. These moments included standing on stage, gripping a microphone, and getting totally out of his comfort zone. This repeated intention to “choose different” has catapulted Luke toward stellar success.
So, what happens AFTER you choose…when you start to take meaningful action? That’s when an inflection point becomes an open road — a pathway to living your intended purpose.
Luke’s path looks something like this…he became President of The Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching at age 32, and has since graduated more than 11,000 coaches, leaders, athletes, and professionals across 44 countries, all of whom share his vision and desire for expanding our human potential and creating lasting, conscious change.
You could say Luke’s manifesto reads something like an everyday philosopher and spirited entrepreneur having been inspired early on by the likes of Napoleon Hill and Og Mandino. Nowadays, his intrinsic curiosity and wisdom is paying off as a media personality quoted on The Huffington Post, Fox Business, and Next Avenue, and most recently taking to the airwaves to entertain life’s pivotal questions with the help of celebrated thought leaders, mentors, and everyday unsung heroes.
