Level Up Your Life with Next Level Thinking… DTH Episode 136 with Kevin Palmieri

Level Up Your Life with Next Level Thinking

Sometimes in life, once we attain a goal, we realize that goal is not quite the prize that we imagined it would be. This is not to say that goals are not important, because they very much are. This is to say, that often people put to much of their personal fulfillment and joy into external results. This can lead to a whole different kind of misery. This is the time to level up your life with next level thinking.

Kevin Palmieri talks Next Level Thinking

After hitting his goal of a six-figure income, Kevin realized that there had to be more. He had the car, the money, the typical “American Dream.” It took getting it all to realize that what matters most is your thoughts. And that’s how Next Level University was born. 
In this great DTH conversation, Kevin and I discuss the importance of reflection and becoming very familiar with yourself. “What do you enjoy so much that you lose track of time?” We talk about life’s purpose, good habits and consistency. And of course, we talk about Kevin’s own story and how that lead to Next Level University.

Communicating Better by Following the Platinum Rule… DTH Episode 135 with Jennifer Furlong

Communicating Better by Following the Platinum Rule

One of the largest problems we face in society today is the fact that we do not communicate well. We spend so much time talking past each other instead of speaking to each other in a way to effectively be understood. Effective communication is a two way street that involves so much more than just trying to get our point across.

How can we communicate better?

There are many ways we can learn to communicate better and more effectively. One way of communicating better is by following the platinum rule. I only recently learned about the platinum rule when I became introduced to this week’s incredible guest, Jennifer Furlong.
