EP 15 | How to Break the Cycle of Unconscious Wiring To Step Outside of Comfort and Create a Meaningful Life with Dr. Chris Fasano  
I know I say in every episode that “I have a very special guest” but it’s because all of my guests are truly special. 
They have so much wisdom, practical experiments and direct experience to offer. 
What if I told you that today you’re going to learn about what exactly is happening in your brain in moments of fear, getting outside of your comfort zone and rewiring old habits so you can create new ones? 
Pretty awesome right? 
Today I am introducing to you, the incredible neuroscientist, Dr. Christopher Fasano, who gives us an insight into the process of the brain and what happens when we become complacent in our lives. He teaches us how to take control of our mental health by understanding the science of the brain and learning how to become more self-aware of our thoughts. 
We talk about: 
-Dr. Fasano’s background and what led him to have a desire to study the brain 
-Why he is passionate about human interaction 
-Why it’s crucial that we begin to get comfortable with being uncomfortable and take risks in our lives
-A clear insight on what’s happening in our brain when we are complacent 
-How to NOT be controlled by unconscious thought patterns or old memories
-How to Hi-Jack Your Own Brain for Your Betterment
-Why we judge ourselves and our actions
-Questions to ask yourself to become more self-aware
Dr. Chris Fasano’s sayings throughout the episode: 
Find what it is that gives you that pleasure 
Taking the risk was the best thing that ever happened because that’s where the world realigns and it forces you to do what you need to do, where if you stayed and linger—you could still get there but  it would take longer. 
"THAT UH-OH moment is your most creative and opportunistic time. It is when you are in that uncomfortable state.
Only at that point in your life where you can stop and say to yourself “Okay, what do I want?” Because anything is out there for you."
Fitness and wellness is an anxious proposition 
If you can lower the anxiety of a human about to better themselves, than you’ll have a higher conversion rate.
"Human beings are not designed to be comfortable.  We were made to be uncomfortable but we’ve evolved to be comfortable and that's the problem. Evolution has taken over and for some reason, it makes us think we have to become a comfortable society. It's okay to be baseline safe but you’ve got to step outside of your comfort zone. “
"Fear comes from region of the brain called the amygdala. Humans have developed a big amygdala overtime and once activated, it sends impulses to your pre-frontal cortex which regulates your higher level thinking and they have a gateway battle.
When things come in, it blocks the impulse. It subverts fear responses and it says, “whoa, whoa, whoa don’t do that.” doesn’t even let you become afraid so complacent humans don’t have anything wrong with them--they are just safe where they are.
Once the brain establishes circuitry and mechanism, it doesn’t want to change. It requires a lot of energy and neuro- rewiring to do that. "
"They want to progress but their brain and wired to establish this mechanism to stay the same. 
Brain gets comfortable in its wiring and it doesn’t let you- something needs to happen- need to be helped — need to be pushed by an outside factor” 
Psychologists estimates that 90 percent of our behaviors goes on without conscious thought.
The brain is designed to automate behaviors. It gets into a loop and operates on it.
People have to do a risk assessment of personality and life style. Look at routines and where can you take room to take risks. Do an analysis of your risk. IF you’re not living a risky life, you have more room to try something. 
Focus on what you’re good at and that will always bring to you the next step
If you are willing to be uncomfortable for a little bit, there is going to be sunlight.
If you can hi-jack the brain to become an auto loop on your product, people will buy your product forever.
Humans were never meant to perform individually. We are social society where we are supposed to interact and benefit from each other. And if we allow ego to make us think that we ar the only way things are possible that no one else can contribute, you're going to fail. 
It's okay for the brain to seek pleasurable things that are good for you. Get your mind addicted to the right thing

Ron's quoteable's throughout the episodes

"Why not choose to say “I have power and I can change the world. I can be responsible with that power and intentionality.”

"Leaders fear being found our that they’re imperfect. Your humanity, your imperfection, your fallibility is your greatest asset and greatest source of credibility."

"Leaders have to appreciate that the IMPOSTER syndrome has a cost to other people."

"Millennials were the generation raised with the message "you can change the world."

"If you dig up underneath behind what's the driven-ness to advance? It's really the driven-ness for impact— NOT FOR SUCCESS."

"The good leaders are the ones who realize “the more I know, the more I don’t know” They begin their day with I don’t know. They solicit feedback. How can I serve you better? "

"You can spend the rest of your life singing to your hairbrush, but why wouldn’t you want the real thing? "

"Some of the best chapters of our lives don’t have titles until a little later. Most of us put the pen down rather than say I’m gonna co-create my story."

We have a special guest! 

In this guest expert episode, I interview the inspiring Nicole Walters, my dear friend. By age 28, Nicole Walters was a highly-paid executive at a Fortune 500 company, managing multibillion dollar accounts. But something wasn’t right. “My job was feeding my family, but not my soul,” she says. So in YRTK, Nicole quit her corporate job to focus open her own private business and product development consulting firm, The Monetized Life. As her audience ramped up, so did her revenue—she made $11,000 in the first three weeks of working with small business clients full time. Now, when she’s not hanging out with her husband and their three foster kids, she shares her secrets to earning “passive income” with other entrepreneurs through her wildly popular online course, 1K1Day. “I teach people how to add commas to their bank accounts,” says Nicole. “They learn that they don’t have to trade time for money.” 
She is someone who is going to touch your heart and fill you up with joy! 
After quitting her corporate Fortune 500, six figure making job in front of 10,000 people on Periscope, her life has unfolded and transformed in the most abundant, fulfilling and wildest of ways! 
We talked about her life before becoming a successful working adult.
-What it’s like to grow up in poverty and be children of hard working immigrant parents
-How to make inner transformations happen so that your life can completely change on the outside
-How to find joy in the journey 
-How she became a millionaire and is raising three beautiful sisters that she adopted
-The power of being present in the moment
-Making a body transformation as a cherry on top
-How to find balance as a entrepreneur and an entrepreneurial mom 
-How to find courage to leave the comfort zone to live your best life
This episode is dense and packed with inspiration, wisdom, real life experience to inspire you to live your best life. 
Nicole Walter's sayings throughout the episode: 
"My dad told me, "you can either clean up the building or have your name on it." 
"If you finish the thing you are supposed to do, find the next piece to get ahead" 
"No one is excluded from being their best self and providing their greatest gifts to the world"
About Being Present
"Anxiety is praying for things that you don’t want.
Worrying all day about things you don’t want. 
Invest emotional, energy into things you do want instead."
"Being present in that moment where ever you are is the ultimate goal. If I am able to live in the moment, that is what I’m chasing. If I can be there completely, then I am living my life completely . God is giving me moment to moment and every moment is beautiful."
About leaving the comfort zone
"Fears are about leaving the familiar, it's not fear of the unknown. "
"Because you already know what you have, you already know how to get what you have. Which means you can go ahead and embrace the unknown because you can always come back. "
About Purpose
"There is no shortage of corporate jobs but there is definitely a shortage of me and my purpose so let me go ahead and take a shot right now because its a risk worth taking."
