Episode_49: What Can the U.S. Presidential Candidates Teach Us About Criticism?

Claiming Authority & Overcoming CriticismJohn_Question

In this episode I discuss how fear of criticism in the world of Social Media can hold people back from going after their goals and dreams.

I also explore the concept of “Claiming Authority” for yourself and show how:

  • Elvis Presley
  • Michael Jackson
  • Howard Stern
  • Rush Limbaugh and others

Claimed authority for themselves and how you can too.

I also discuss how your Biggest Asset can be your Biggest WEAKNESS and ideas on how to beat that before it becomes a problem.

The DeFlame Diet.

So I have a great book I want to recommend to you. It’s called “The Deflame Diet: DeFlame your diet, body, and mind” by Dr. David Seaman.

This book is great. I’ve been eating this way for awhile now. If you’re a Voice Talent who has to clear their throat a lot throughout the day, maybe have some post-nasal drip, or are feeling sluggish and run down – you want to check this book out. The link above is an affiliate link through Amazon.com. If you want to see how I’m tracking my daily intake and activities, you can check out my Tracking Log Here. If you want to know why it’s important to track this stuff, you should read my post on the Importance of Daily Tracking here.

It was given to me by my trainer Mandla Nkosi. The book explains through scientific research that most chronic diseases like heart disease, high blood pressure, bad cholesterol, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and a host of others are all caused by eating an “Inflammatory diet.” An inflammatory diet is one that promotes chronic inflammation throughout the body that over time leads to these diseases.

Sources of inflammation are refined sugars and grains – pretty much a good portion of the “Western” diet. The book explains how inflammation gets started and how it affects every cell in our body. It also explains how to “DeFlame” and live a healthier lifestyle. It’s not as crazy and hard to do as you may think. You just need to look out for a few key ingredients and eat whole, unprocessed foods.

Episode 42: Why Voice Over People Are Special

This Episode Is A Pep-Talk For YOU!

I spend some time in this episode encouraging you to keep working on your dream of voice John_and_MIKE_2-13-14acting and voice over.

Voice Over People are special because we all started doing it because we had or have the dream of using our voices in some form of media. It’s not a common career. If you’re in VO or starting a VO Career you’re working on your goals and dreams.

Many people go through life wishing and dreaming and never doing and end their lives with that regret.

We’re at least working on the VO dream and we should take pride in wherever we are in our journey. We’re in the game. We’re playing. We’re living our dreams.

Never ever give up on it. Keep going. You’ll make it.

Hey It’s Been Awhile

It’s been a rough year for me so far this year. I’ve had to take some time away from the podcast to help my family with some “Stuff” that’s been going on.

It’s given me some time to reflect on what I’ve accomplished and other things I still want to do.

It’s also reinforced the knowledge that we can’t take life for granted and that if we have goals and dreams – then there’s no “Perfect” time to start working on them. “Now” is the perfect time.

I guess someone many years ago summed it up with the phrase “There’s no time like the present.”

Some Inspiring Music

Here Are A Couple of Links to some RUSH tunes that encourage people to go after their goals and dreams:

“Mission” and “Losing It”

Great tunes. Enjoy.

Episode 40: How To Entertain – An Interview With Gallagher the Comedian

Gallagher_2

Gallagher in the Studio with John Melley

So, awhile back I had the opportunity to interview one of my favorite childhood comedians, Gallagher.

Sure, his “Sledge-O-Matic” routine was sure to appeal to a 12 year old boy, but it appeals to adults too.

One bit I remembered was his observations on the inconsistencies of the English language. I marveled at his ability to string them into a story that made you laugh.

Prior to my interview he asked me to record a series of poems he had written. To watch him perform them was a real treat. To record them, an honor. To follow their meaning was an opportunity to appreciate the work of an amazingly clever and creative person.

I share one at the end of this episode.

Some of the thoughts he shares are controversial, but hey, all comedy is at some level and he has strong opinions.

Listen for his thoughts on How to entertain, practice and prepare. Listen to his strategic decisions. Learn why he makes the decisions he does and how/why he chooses a “Stress Free” life.

Lots of gems in this one. Enjoy!

John Signature
