Mark Goulston hosted me on his podcast My Wakeup Call.
He is the bestselling author of Get Out of Your Own Way: Overcoming Self-Defeating Behavior and Just Listen: Discover the Secret to Getting Through to Absolutely Anyone among other books. Recent guests on his podcast include Ram Charan, Jordan Peterson, and the CEO of the 76ers (I grew up in Philadelphia). We’ve also overlapped many, including Jeff Madoff and Dorie Clark.
From his about page:
Originally a UCLA professor of psychiatry for over 25 years, and a former FBI and police hostage negotiation trainer, Dr. Mark Goulstonâ€™s expertise has been forged and proven in the crucible of real-life, high stakes situations. An influencer who helps influencers become more influential, his unique background has made him an indispensible and sought after resource and change facilitator to Fortune 500 leaders, entrepreneurs and educators across the nation. He lives with his wife in Los Angeles, California.
Click to listen. Unlike many podcasters, Mark isn’t pushing an agenda. His supportive psychology perspective evoked why I do what I do. He evoked motivations and feelings I hadn’t shared beyond close friends. I feel gratitude for reaching that depth.
Iâ€™m Dr. Mark Goulston, and this is My Wakeup Call. Everybody has wakeup calls, but not everybody wakes up. In this podcast, we speak to people who did. In fact, they not only woke up, but their wakeup call changed their life, and changed how they would spend the rest of their life. In every case, the wakeup call was not pleasant, sought-after, and usually shook people to the core of their being. But in every case, it made our guests more authentic, better at life, better in life, and better human beings. I hope you will listen-in and become as inspired as I am from every episode. I also hope it will help you persevere if you are going through a wakeup call and havenâ€™t yet gotten through the pain of it, or landed in your future as the better person youâ€™re meant to be, with the better life that youâ€™re meant to have.
