Today’s guest George Bryant is the co-author of the New York Times best-selling cookbook, The Paleo Kitchen, and the man behind the Civilized Caveman, the top paleo blog in the world. George and Nicholas dig deep today, talking about changing out internal perspective to not only have success but to also be able to handle our success.

They discuss the self-limiting challenges that many face and how to overcome those obstacles in order to expand your experiences that will then define your success.


Time Stamped Show Notes

  • [3:10] Building trust quickly: Authenticity.
  • [6:43] Commitment: The one mentality that has stuck with George over the years.
  • [11:25] The Four Rules, eliminating the lies of who you aren’t and surrendering your “ideals”.
  • [18:08] Seeking out what you fear most.
  • [20:02] The Power of Radical Honesty.

  • “Commitment is not feelings.” It doesn’t matter if you’re tired, if you don’t feel good, if you don’t want to. As George said in his example of caring for his son, despite how George feels in the moment, he said, “I have to get up and tend to his (his son’s) needs. That’s commitment.”
  • “What is happening in this moment right now isn’t definite, it just is. And what happened a moment ago can’t be changed. But what I choose to do in the next moment is going to define my results one week from now, one month from now, and one year from now.” Your improvement just needs to be 1% better than what you are currently doing and you will see your results increase.
  • The Four Rules: No Fault, No Blame, No Guilt, No Shame. Why? Because the truth is if someone says something that upsets you, it has nothing to do with them and everything to do with you. You get to decide and make a choice of how those words, situation, circumstances will affect you. You are the one who will choose whether or not to put the fault on others, to pin blame, to carry the guilt, or to feel the shame. It is 100% your choice on how things impact you.
  • “You’re not in a monogamous relationship with food, there isn’t any cheating only choices. Choose not to put it in your mouth next time.”
  • What you see as ideal isn’t actually the best for you. You can only see as far as you’ve grown.
  • The biggest fear in being authentic isn’t that people will judge you, it’s that you actually might succeed. When we hold on to the things we are subversively self-sabotaging. Because many think that if they don’t show up as their authentic selves they don’t have to commit to success. We are actually afraid of freedom and peace, and society supports that. If you actually accept who you are you can conquer the fear.
