Episode 34 Take Charge of Yourself In 2018 With Vaughn Ripley


I absolutely love talking with Vaughn. After this recording, I was high on life!

We have so many responsibilities and we sometimes forget to make sure we are nurturing ourselves and holding true to our values and goals. Vaughn reminds us to start small. This episode, he offers up some great tips that he uses and we all can implement easily into our daily lives. Use the Kaizen way and add or subtract something small that over time to have a Compound Effect on your life.

Challenge to Kaizen Yourself

Vaughn is the perfect guy to jump start our 2018, especially since most of our resolutions have been broken by now.  Re-start today.  With Vaughn’s tips on how to make those goals and resolutions manageable and attainable, you will achieve more and more each day. We challenge you to apply one of these tips, or something else you have found and check in with us to tell us your progress.

We have so many public figures in our community that can be our mentors. Vaughn, Patrick Lynch, L.A. Aguayo, Chris Bombardier, Alex Dowsett, and the list goes on and on.  They are so down to earth and if you get the chance meet them, please do. If they have the time, they will give you some of it to chat and make a connection. If you can’t make it to the big conferences or chapter events where they are speaking, you can still get virtual mentorship via podcasts, YouTube, magazine articles, and their social media.

Vaughn’s Kaizen Tips:

2 minutes in the morning to decide what that ONE thing is that you will do to get closer to your goal, dream or project. Just one thing! We can do that, right?

Resolutions Every Day – Don’t wait until the beginning of the year to evaluate your life and proclaim you are going to become, be better, be insert you resolution here. Review every day and determine how you will change your response if that situation arises again. If you skipped your workout, either get up and do it now, or figure out how you will make that a non-negotiable tomorrow.

Box-Breathing – get that oxygen to your brain! Watch some Navy Seals talk about it here.

Meditation – start with just a minute and work your way up. Do longer meditation right before bed to clear your mind and prepare for sleep.

SLEEP! – Sleep is how our body repairs itself, builds new connections in the brain and recharges our body battery. Vaughn uses the app Sleep Cycle to get some biohack info.
