How To Use Play and Love To Live An EPIC Life

Preston Smiles is an international speaker, motivational messenger, and YouTuber.

He travels with his beautiful wife (next episode;)) impacting the globe through their speaker, workshops, and books.

We are here to talk about their new book that they wrote together. Now or never -How to live an epic life in 5 steps.

Preston also happens to be the author of Love Louder: 33 Ways to Amplify Your Life which he only launched at the beginning of this year.

Simply put: they are on fire! 

Two books within a year, multiple international speaking gigs, standing ovations when they speak etc...  

It’s exciting for anyone to watch. 

That’s what we talked about in this interview.

How did he get started when he didn’t have any of this. 

We talked about how people are not in flow and why my guest seems like he is constantly on or tapped in.

I freaking love his reason for this.

We also touched on his favorite chapter of the book, radical responsibility and how it’s the hardest one to accept for all of us. 

The interview starts off a bit heady meaning we got really into his past, how he grew up, and how he became the global icon he is today…

 But the reason I led this way, is to show you his process.

The process is NOT always pretty to look at or want to talk about, but at one point, he went off on the idea of patience, and it was a beautiful thing to listen to. 

He embodies what living an epic life is all about, and it’s my honor to bring to you and share with you his story and message.

Video of Interview:

Dec 8, 2016

I genuinely can’t believe I am recording episode 100. I am your host Jay Wong and It is an absolutely privilege for me that you are tuning in.


I don’t know who most of you are. Perhaps we haven’t had a chance to connect on social media or via emails.


But I know something about you.


You have a gift and you know it.


You have been tapped on your shoulder by god, by a higher being, by aliens, by your intuition, or by whatever you believe.


I know it. And you know it.


Look, this podcast was never about what you believe. What religion do you belong to or where your faith lies.


This podcast has always been about creating an impact with your gift. Creating your life’s work and having the guts, the balls, man balls and woman balls to simply GO FOR IT.


To Live the life you deserve.


To create the legacy to honour your gift and your message.


I had no idea I would be here recording this episode for you.


I spent the last two weeks, relistening to my podcast, to some of my favourite episodes.


I have heard that some podcast hosts have started to remix their podcasts so in a single episode, they would essentially rip a bit here, and rip a bit there.


And then supplement in their message.


To be honest, I wrote an episode like that. WIth four of my favourite podcasts from this year, and that was going to be my epic 100.


But as I was putting on the final touches on it, something didn’t seem right.


It just felt forced and contrived.


And if you have been following my work for any amount of time, you know I am not about that.


I am about living in the moment.


I am about tapping into your zone of genius and discovering how you can build a life around there.


So I simply put it aside, scrapped it and start anew.


Go with whatever NEW I had in mind and this started flowing out of me.


You see, sometimes in life, you follow and you do what others have done before you because you simply don’t know how to do better.


Or perhaps this was the way that you were raised or taught.


Over the last 16 months, I have learnt a great amount through this podcast and my life is completely different than where I first started.


If you wanted to see how I was feeling when I first started on my parents coach almost 2 years ago, then listen to episode 99.


It was the last one before this, and I was interviewed by the talented Chris Spurvey on the It’s Time To Sell Podcast.


I want to talk to you about the present.


About the now.


About this moment.


You see, I might not know who you are, but I already told you I know you have a gift.


You have genius trapped in you and it’s looking to get out.


You are beyond scared to let it out because it would mean change.


Whether good or bad, it would mean change no matter what.


And to be honest, most of us were never taught to deal with change in a healthy way.


We were never taught to be patient with ourselves and accept the change. The good and bad.


I still go through days and nights where I am stressed beyond belief. I run multiple online courses LIVE and a mastermind of inner circle people, as well as manage the entire podcast and media channels.


I get scared too.


I have doubts too


I lay awake from time to time, wondering what if this goes wrong. What if I can’t be the better human and find a way to “make it”


But in those moments, I have trained myself to switch the lens of my situation.


Instead of looking at the alternatives, and the unknown, I look at the facts.


I acknowledge that the path of any messenger is not a straight one.


I acknowledge that it takes time to build something epic and great


I accept that I am human and I still don’t know everything.


And will likely not know much in the grand scheme of things.


I accept that I am human and that I fear change as much any other person would.


I also accept the responsibility of my gifts


I realize that if I don’t share my gifts with the world, no one will.


Because at the end of the day, they can only share theirs.


And I can only share mine.


There are no duplicates for our genius.


It is so unique and so powerful if we just let go


If we let go of our ego and fears, and thoughts and doubts, and simply let it be.


Let it blossom the way a flower needs time to bloom.


Our genius is waiting for us to let go.


It’s craving to be let out into the world and play.


It’s craving to inspire others through your grit and skills.


I don’t know who most of you are. Perhaps we haven’t had a chance to connect on social media or via emails.


But I know something about you.


You have a gift and you know it.


You have been tapped on your shoulder by god, by a higher being, by aliens, by your intuition,


I know it. And you know it.


You are a changemaker and that’s all i need to know about you.


I promise you that all of your support, comments, likes, email fwds, requests, have not been ignored.


This might be episode 100, but I promise you it’s the beginning of something so much more.


I have been playing small, not attacking the movement and been comfortable sitting where I am.


I will not play small no more!


I will play to win. In this month, and the months after that.


One day, changemakers from around the world will unite and we will be able to impact billions of people on this planet.


We will be able to do it together and we will be tapping into our gifts


We will use all of your genius to do it, and it will be glorious.


It’s funny, when I started writing this episode, I had no idea how it was going to end.


And perhaps, that is exactly the fitting ending needed.


When we embark on the journey of tapping into our gifts, it’s not always going to be clear what to do next or how the whole thing will end.


All you can do is use your gifts every day , be patient and be ready to inspire the world when it’s your turn.




Are you hearing me?


This might have just started out as a podcast, but I promise you it won’t end here.


We are changemakers and the changemaker movement is coming.


This is Jay

Signing off, episode 100!


Reminding you to always choose adventure in your life.


Live with passion, live your dream and live it now!

Michael O'Neal's grammar school report cards always read:  Doesn't live up to his potential and Talks too much."  One of those pieces of feedback would come in handy, as he is now the founder and host of the award-winning and much acclaimed business and entertainment podcast, "The Solopreneur Hour with Michael O'Neal." The show, launched in August 2013, has already garnered more than 6 million downloads and monetized to multiple six-figures, features lively and highly engaging conversations between Michael and his various (and often much sought-after) guests, who share remarkable stories, advice and practical tips for an audience that badges itself as "proudly unemployable" and highly motivated to finally take charge of their own lucrative business pursuits.

From the conversation with Grant Cardone, there were a couple of points that resonated with me.

This is THE place dedicated to purpose-driven individuals and passionate creators. We are all about learning how to create greater impact and interviewing people that are choosing legacy over currency.


Last week, we had productivity expert, Craig Ballantyne on the show talking about productivity and how to get shit done strategically.

Going back to this week’s mystery guest, he had a number of successful businesses before he became well known for blogging and helping entrepreneurs blog around the world.


One of his businesses was a proofreading business while the another one has to do with Magic: The Gathering card game trading forum and e-commerce site


In the interview, we breakdown his journey from digital nomad to world famous blogger.


We also deep dive into how businesses and entrepreneurs can leverage the power of blogs in TODAY’s economy. 

I asked him how relevant is blogging in 2016 because let’s be honest, we don’t need MORE content in our lives right? And his answer BLEW me away.


I think his answer would blow you away as well and help change your perspective in terms of how you imagine making a profit from your blog or having a blog in general.

This is THE place dedicated to purpose-driven individuals and passionate creators. We are all about learning how to create greater impact and interviewing people that are choosing legacy over currency.


Last week, we had famous YouTuber and salsa dancer extraordinaire, Evan Carmichael on the show talking about YouTube AND the concept of the one word.


Actually, we said, forget the concept, let’s deep dive into how we can get to our one word for you and we used my brand / business as an example.


Evan didn’t let me get away with the easy answers, so if you want to see me on the hot seat, be sure to check out that episode.

Evan has amassed a huge following of over 438,000 and his channel has generated over 55 million views! 


Here is probably what you don’t know.

He also runs Toronto Dance Salsa as well and his one word is #Believe.


He is a believer in humans. He believes in entrepreneurs solving the greatest problems of our generation.


And the reason I am mentioning his one word is because that's what the interview is about.


Finding your one word and how by doing so, you simplify all your marketing and value system.


Sounds difficult? Don’t worry. Evan is releasing a book on the topic in Dec and its’ titled Your One Word.

Have you ever said to yourself "that's just impossible" ?
Have you ever been told by your friends or family that your vision or dream is impossible?

BIG ideas are always deemed impossible before people CRAZY enough to do them actually do them.

Life is about operating in possibility. And living with nothing left in the tank.

This week has been one of the most intense weeks of my life. I simply had to share the reframe that changed my life.

IF this was impactful for you, share with someone that needs to see this :)

So much LOVE, and gratitude to you seeing or hearing this!

Grant Cardone is an international sales expert, New York Times best-selling author, and radio show host of The Cardone Zone. He has founded three companies: Cardone Enterprises, Cardone Real Estate Holdings, and the Cardone Group. He has shared his sales and business expertise as a motivational speaker and author of five books: Sell to Survive; The Closers Survival Guide; If You're Not First, You're Last; The 10X Rule; and Sell or Be Sold and we are chatting about his new book be Obsessed or Be Average.

It’s funny actually, I introduced him as a multi-millionaire on the show and he got offended. You have to check out his reasoning for why he almost killed me for saying that.


In the interview, we cover exactly Grant thinks being obsessed is a healthy thing and what you can learn from junkies.


I know on the onset it would seem like they are both such negative terms, but once you hear how Grant reframes them for you, you might think differently.


Simply put, Grant is prolific. This guy pretty much has a new show that goes out every day.


I ask him about his thoughts on balance and going all in for his family and you will be shocked at his response.


He gives me tactical information about his priming process every morning for how he gets in the zone. He hasn’t given to any other interviews so you gotta listen to see what I mean.


This might not be my most popular episode as some of the things Grant says will inevitably piss you off.


Especially his thoughts on work life balance and an epidemic of individuals trying to heal themselves.


But that’s the point. IF you are a changemaker, if you want that level of success, part of the formula, no matter how you cut it, is the obsession with your art and what you do best in this world.


I don’t agree with everything he said. But then again, I millions of dollars was a lot before this interview.


According to Grant, you are at best in the middle class if you have a million dollars.


Changemakers, do me a favor. IF you enjoy this episode, let us know. Let Grant know, let me know. Don’t be passive in this process. I realize that everything we do needs to be coming from a place of feedback.

Tweet at us, let us know.

Dr. Sean Stephenson was predicted not to survive at birth because of a rare bone disorder that stunted his growth and caused his bones to be extremely fragile.

Despite his challenges, he took a stand for a quality of life that has inspired millions of people around the world including Sir Richard Branson, President Clinton, and his Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.

Dr. Stephenson has appeared on everything from Oprah to Jimmy Kimmel, in addition to online videos with hundreds of millions of views. The Biography Channel did an hour feature on his life called “Three Foot Giant.”


In the interview, we cover why Sean believes the reasons behind people choose to suffer from their insecurities. Why do we have them anyways?


He literally spells how the cure to all insecurities so that was interesting for sure.


He gives you a tactic that is more beneficial than 95% of all counseling, wait till you see how simple it is.

I love the part of the interview where we deep dive into what sean calls his - win life works list vs. win life sucks list

And wait till you hear how simple of these steps are. And the best part, I couldn’t believe it myself, is that you don’t even have to do ALL of them, you only have done about 25%

Incredible right?

I hope this is getting you fired up.

We also touched on a topic that I have never talked about with a guest on this show which is head vs. heart.

You might have a guess into what that means right now, but I love how Sean not only gives us the proper definitions but also gives us ways to tap into “heart” He calls it a heart hack.


This is one of those episodes, you want to listen through at least twice to pick up on the whole level of awesomeness that was captured.
