The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

Can you change the way you think? This week’s conversation is all about how to change the way you think about what is possible and how to create “the most empowering place on earth.” Joe on his perpetual QUEST to rip people off the couch, talks with Impact Theory’s Tom Bilyeu about creating a media platform that empowers people to leverage their behaviors. The idea is to meet you where you are - with your nutrition and your mind.  In this episode explore the “why” of suffering, the disruptive power of narrative and remind you that “you are what you do habitually.” Find out how Tom plans to make you better.



  1. Dont be less of what you could be- work your way to success
  2. Utilize the Growth Mindset: learn, grow, get better and read a lot
  3. Impact takes time
  4. Intelligence isn’t a static unchangeable thing
  5. Build something you are all passionate about
  6. Building a community is the best marketing of all time
  7. Leverage people’s behavior rather than trying to change it
  9. What you build your self esteem around really matters
  10. You are what you do habitually
  11. CRUSH A.N.T.S. (Automatic Negative Thoughts) - Dr. Daniel Amen
