Flow Over Fear: Transformation Thanks to Man’s Best Friend

The Walk That Started a Journey of Transformation, with Jeff Goodrich

It only takes one paw forward to pave the path to personal growth. 

In this episode, Adam Hill sits down with Jeff Goodrich who shares how a simple walk with his dog Duder was the first step in a journey of massive self-improvement. Through small consistent actions like daily walks, Jeff was able to lose 70 pounds, repair his marriage, complete several marathons, and find a renewed sense of purpose. 

Jeff discusses the transformative power of starting small instead of waiting until you feel ready to take huge leaps. He also offers valuable insights on using fear of regrets as motivation to keep progressing each day. Listen and be reminded of what’s possible – through perseverance and creativity!

Here are some power takeaways from today’s conversation:

  • Everything starts with the first step
  • How to find your “why” and the evolution of the “why” 
  • Small changes lead to big results
  • Find your anchor habit to achieve consistency
  • The role of service animals
  • Building a healthy relationship with nutrition

Episode Highlights:

[03:24] Everything starts with the first step

Jeff considered that first day he put a leash on Duder and took their first step outside together as truly the beginning of his journey toward transformation.

[10:13] How to find your why through awareness and environment

Start by exploring your environment and becoming aware of where your life is at to define what your why could be, what it should be, and what you really want it to be.

[13:22] The evolution of the “why”

Jeff believed one’s why is constantly evolving over time and throughout life experiences.

[19:30] Small changes lead to big results

Weight loss occurred naturally as a result of Jeff’s new daily walk routine and mindset shifts. 

[21:57] Find your anchor habit to achieve consistency

Don’t focus on the 100 things you’ve got to do. Find the one thing that will keep you going.

[24:15] Use fear as your fuel

The fear of regrets is actually a lot more powerful than the regrets themselves. That fear is what keeps Jeff continuously moving forward in his journey

[38:27] The role of service animals

Jeff believes service animals could greatly assist those dealing with medical or psychological issues through detection abilities, safety support, and the mental health benefits of unconditional canine companionship.

[42:09] Build a healthy relationship with nutrition

Clean up your diet but find out what works for you because there are so many options out there. The key is to make simple, healthier choices – what you need to eliminate and what you can add.
