In this episode, I had the honor of interviewing best selling author of Do a Day, Bryan Falchuk.
After facing life changing adversities back to back, Bryan created an approach to help others live a better life based with his Do A Day philosophy.
Bryan was faced with many relatable challenges in life like dealing with depression, self-criticism, judgement from others, living with obesity as a child while trying to sort through his parent's divorce, the stresses from work, depression, the duty of being a good father and husband. At one point, he was even told that his wife's illness was fatal. The most difficult part was having their son watch this all happen.
This contributed a shift in Bryan to wake up to life and live each day, better. Today Bryan shares that it is not just about overcoming the adversity. It's about asking yourself, "how can I create a life of happiness, achievement and balance?"
He has lost nearly 100 lbs., has ran a marathon and even transformed his diet into being vegan in just one day. He got his masters from a top school and rose to a senior executive position in a successful business. And now he’s a best-selling author, has spoken at TEDx events, and has written articles for many major publications like Inc. Magazine, the Chicago Tribune and LA Times. He’s transformed his life and developed an approach to help others do the same that he teaches in his best-selling book “Do a Day”, and he’s here today to share that philosophy with all of you.
Here is what you will learn:
-How to use each day to contribute to your goals to live the life you want

Bryan's quotes throughout the episode:
"You have to focus on the self love because how can you expect to overcome what’s standing in the way and achieve the things you really care about if inside you don’t feel like you deserve it or you’re worthy of it.”
"Self-love is pervasive in all that we do."
"Start allowing for the possibility that you are good, you’re capable and you deserve it."
"Find what's wrong, call it out and fix it but it makes us hypercritical because we are trained to look for what’s wrong in ourselves."
