When you want to make changes in your life or challenge yourself in some way, it’s not enough just to wait for it to happen. You have to make it happen by taking action, and in order to take meaningful action, you have to have a plan and a process for making things happen. That’s true whether your goal is to give up alcohol or travel around the world. Today’s guest is an expert in the ways that planning intentional actions can lead you to amazing places. 

Chris Guillebeau is an author, blogger, and speaker. He also has a podcast, Side Hustle School, and runs the annual World Domination Summit. Chris is also known for having visited every country in the world. He made it to all 193 countries before the age of 35. 

In today’s episode, Chris talks about how making changes in your life can lead to more changes, and how experiences contribute to self-awareness and the ability to make wiser decisions. He talks about how important planning was in his quest to visit every country in the world. He also explains how he grew into that goal, starting with a smaller goal of visiting 100 countries, and only expanding the goal to include all the countries as he grew close to meeting the original challenge. 

“In the world we live in, having more than one source of income can give you disproportionate security.” 

Chris also discusses his podcast, and why he is interested in the concept of the side hustle. Chris felt that people who already have full-time jobs and can’t or don’t want to quit were being left out of the conversation about entrepreneurship. 

Chris feels that it’s important for everyone to have more than one source of income, and that people who already have jobs should be empowered to create additional income streams for themselves. He believes that people can identify something they’re good at and figure out how to turn that into an additional income. Tune in to hear more of the conversation with Chris.

Today’s podcast episode comes to you from Dinorwig Lodge in Wales, where a number of One Year No Beer members have gathered to take part in a challenge: climbing Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales. 

Several members share their feelings and experiences after taking part in this challenge. Completing a physical challenge, like climbing a mountain, demonstrates to you what you can accomplish when you choose to replace unhealthy habits with healthy ones, and reinforces the value of the changes that you’ve already made. It can also help you build confidence. 

“The opposite of addiction is connection.” 

In addition to the physical challenge, this meetup offered members of One Year No Beer the opportunity to meet each other and form connections in person. A meetup like this is your chance to prove that you can form those connections and have fun with other people without the help of alcohol. And if you missed this chance to meet up, don’t worry – some members are already planning another climbing challenge in April.

Life can sometimes take you to very dark places, whether or not you struggle with alcohol. If you’re dealing with mental health problems, like depression, it can be difficult to overcome any other problems that you might also be facing. Today’s guest knows from first-hand experience how destructive depression can be and how much of a difference it can make to get the help that you need. 

Josh Quigley attempted suicide by crashing his car going at 80 miles an hour. Not only did he survive the suicide attempt, he walked away without injury. This inspired him to get help and make a change. Eventually, he decided to cycle around the world. When he returned home, after cycling and walking more than 14,000 miles through 15 countries, he decided that what he really wanted to do was help other people find health and happiness. 

“The more you start to make changes, the better you start to feel.” 

Josh describes how he changed his mindset by reading and learning. He talks about the importance of taking responsibility for your life and making changes where you can make them. You may not be able to control every factor that contributes to depression, like biology or brain chemistry, but you can change things like how much alcohol you drink, what you eat, how often you exercise, and so on. 

In our interview, Josh talks about the lessons that he learned during his cycling trip, like the importance of meeting new people and hearing their stories. He also talks about traveling the Camino de Santiago, an ancient religious pilgrim route. He also talks about his relationship with alcohol, how it impacted his life, and how he decided to make a change and commit to sobriety. Listen to the episode to hear the rest of Josh’s powerful story.

Today’s podcast was recorded on World Book Day, and we want to take a moment to remind listeners about our book, The 28 Day Alcohol-Free Challenge, which you can find on bookstore shelves and online. The book is one way that we’re helping others change their relationship with alcohol. And we’re not the only ones working to help offer options to people who want to go alcohol-free or change the way we use alcohol. Today’s guest, Lee Davy, is the founder of the site The Truth About Alcohol and the host of the Alcohol and Addiction podcast. 

Lee quit drinking in an effort to save a struggling marriage. He says that in his case, alcohol was masking deeper problems in the marriage, and the marriage ended anyway. After that, Lee decided to make massive changes in his life. He changed his career, got out of debt, traveled the world, got remarried, and transformed his whole life, right down to cutting off contact with old friends and giving away possessions. Lee realized that what he wanted to do with his life was to help people quit alcohol. That’s what led to the creation of his website. 

“It’s like your entire life has been down to a set of decisions you made when you really didn’t have a clue what you were doing.” 

Lee says that he felt that he was tricked into believing that alcohol had value, and he felt compelled to save others from experiencing the same things that he did. He compares alcohol use to a prison with the doors open – he could walk in and out, but others believed that the door was closed and wouldn’t try to leave. 

Lee decided to become a professional poker player. He set a goal to earn a certain amount of money, and if he hit the goal, he would quit his job and use the money to help other people quit alcohol. This led to writing gigs about his experience. He created The Truth About Alcohol as a side gig while becoming one of the top poker writers in the world. Tune in to the episode to hear more about Lee’s story and how changing your relationship with alcohol can have unexpected positive impacts on your life.
