Times are crazy right now. Which is why I wanted to talk to one of the kings of positive mindset. Todd McCullough has built a business designed to help build strong minds and bodies. Listen in as we chat about the state of the world right now, how a positive mindset will pull you through, and what you can do to flip the script on negativity.
Todd began his career after getting a degree in finance with Merrill Lynch. After the last economic downturn, he was laid off and had to figure out a new plan. He knew that the world of finance was not what drove him, so he sought to find a new dream as well.
After being asked by several people to train them, he realized he enjoyed helping people get healthier. He has since spent his career helping others to gain mental and physical health and happiness.
His mindset is what has really allowed him to succeed however so we discuss how he maintains a healthy mindset even when times are tough. When things happen, like what’s currently going on in the world, you can stay positive and keep a healthy mindset.
Todd has so many wonderful things to say on keeping peak mental health in rough times. You won’t want to miss his advice or the wonderful resources he shares. Listen in and learn how to combat the negativity and fear that is happening all around us.

7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Steven Covey
We’ve all experienced pain, but how much of it is physiological and how much of it is psychological? I’m asking this question because I recently had a really bad bout with pain and it reminded me about the work of Dr. John Sarno. Dr. John Sarno did a ton of research around the Mindbody Connection. He started his career as a regular doctor, assessing physical trauma and prescribing pain meds or surgery as needed. All was well until he realized that his patients didn’t always get better after the initial issue was treated.
