Rise Higher

Mar 31, 2020

Today I’ve got two special guests for you - inspirational speaker, trainer, serial entrepreneur, and co-creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series (with over 500 million books sold around the world), Mark Victor Hansen, and his wife Crystal Dwyer Hansen who is one of America’s leading success and wellness coaches. The huge success of the Chicken Soup series might suggest that Mark just has that Midas touch — but he assures me that isn’t the case. In fact, before Chicken Soup for the Soul’s release in 1993, Mark faced bankruptcy, a ton of rejection (the book was turned down 144 times!), and felt so low that he had to reach up to hit rock bottom. In this episode Mark tells me how he managed to pick himself up after each rejection, and how his faith in the power of his idea kept him going when everyone around him was telling him to quit. You’ll hear Mark and Crystal share their top tips for surrounding yourself with positivity, boosting your self-worth, and improving your inner monologue. They explain that cultivating faith, focusing on solutions, and clinging to your belief in yourself and your goals can lead to all kinds of miracles. And, if you’ve ever found yourself wondering if you can actually make a living by following your passion you’ll definitely want to find out how “becoming a bold asker” could help you uncover your true purpose and create a life of abundance.
