How to Get Anything You Want Tony Stephan

How to Get Anything You Want with Tony Stephan

What if you could have anything you want? Sounds crazy, right? Here’s the truth—you CAN have anything you want. The problem is we run away from our fears instead of running toward our dreams. We shrink from adversity, hard work, and the unknown. The worst part about it is, this is what we show to our children.

Our guest today is Tony Stephan. He is a registered dietician and nutrition coach who’s been featured on Fox News, NBC, Huff Post, and Women’s Health Magazine. His childhood was full of hardship and tragedy. Anyone would’ve understood if he felt sorry for himself and drifted through life, but his humble father gave him the secret to achieving what he thought was impossible. Tony Stephan’s not only going to tell us how to use this secret to get the health we want, but how to get anything we want in life.

You can have anything you want if you’re willing to work for it.

Tony Stephan

Tony Stephan’s fascination with health began when his mother left the family. She was an addict, and Tony remembers clearly the moment his father took him down to the basement to tell him his mother was gone.

Tony was only fourteen years old and he couldn’t process what was happening. His dad knew his son would be hurt and confused. His solution was simple—an old bench and a set of weights. He told Tony that he couldn’t bring his mom back, but he wanted fitness to be Tony’s outlet instead of drugs, alcohol, and crime.

A few years later, when Tony was eighteen, his mother was found on a motel room floor dead from a drug overdose. Once again, Tony channeled his anger through working out. Fitness literally saved his life—mentally, emotionally, and physically.

From then on, Tony felt compelled to help other people cope with loss and trauma through fitness. He started out as a personal trainer making $6 an hour. Then he went into debt to finish his education. He spent the last of his savings on coaching to deal with his negative, self-limiting beliefs in order to reach people on a larger scale. Now he’s twenty-eight, just married, and living his dream life. He credits his dad’s greatest piece of advice.

You can’t choose what happens to you, but you can choose the meaning of it and what you do with that meaning.

What You’ll Learn

  • How adversities are here to make you not break you
  • How Tony’s dad couldn’t give him money, college tuition, or new cars, but what he gave him something invaluable—a work ethic and the possibility that Tony wouldn’t be defined by his circumstances
  • The danger of operating out of fear
  • How approaching from a perspective of abundance gives you more motivation and impact
  • How to make the shift from scarcity to abundance
  • Understanding you have a choice every day to interpret your life in a way that serves you
  • How adversity molded him into a fighter
  • How he feels about his future kids being raised in abundance
  • Why he doesn’t want to pay for his kids’ college tuition
  • Why he will consider himself a failure if he doesn’t produce children who are not contributing members of society
  • How a lack of resources helps you become resourceful
  • Why investing in yourself is a selfless act
  • How to hack your diet with protein and fiber
  • Exactly how much protein you need at every meal
  • Why you should eat foods that rot
  • Healthy fats sources
  • The importance of creating awareness of what you’re eating daily
  • Why there’s no such thing as bad food, just bad portions
  • The myth of intermittent fasting
  • Implementing behavior-based change – adding one easily achievable new habit at a time

Hunger was the best sauce I ever received.

Dad Fitness and Nutrition Bootcamp

The Driven Dad Fitness and Nutrition Bootcamp


Why do many of us fathers neglect our health? There are two main reasons. The number one reason is guilt. We feel bad for taking time away from work and family to spend on ourselves. The second reason is money. We would have to spend more to eat healthier, join a gym, or hire a personal trainer.

But not making our health a priority is the biggest disservice to ourselves and our families.

In this episode, we have a panel discussion with Dr. Adrian Chavez of Your Nutrition Prescription and Chris Hughes from The Driven Dad. They have put together a fully-customized 8-week fitness and nutrition bootcamp for dads. We also talk to members Rashad and Mickey about what made this bootcamp unique and how it has transformed their health and their lives!

Most Effective Way to Reach Your Health Goals

The Most Effective Way to Reach Your Health Goals

Steve Birch weighed 250 pounds and was on cholesterol and blood pressure medication. At Thanksgiving, he realized he was sweating, not because it was hot, but because of his extra body fat. It got to the point that when he looked at family pictures, he was appalled at the sight of himself.

Now Steve is 30 pounds lighter, off his medication, and feels better than ever. How did he finally reach his health goals? With the help of the Dad Edge Alliance. Doing life with other likeminded men upped the accountability factor, giving him the motivation to stay on track on not give up.

Listen to how Steve Birch is becoming not only a better man and father, but a healthier one.

Being there for your family means taking care of your health. #dads #men #fathers #fatherhood #dadlife #dadbod #menshealth Click To Tweet

The Realistic Way to Transform Your Body

The Realistic Way to Transform Your Body This Year with Josiah Novak

Probably the biggest thing we try to fix in the new year is our health. We set goals to lose weight and tone up, but we tend to fail year after year. Being in optimum shape is important to being a good father, husband, and man. If you listen to this show, this could be the year you actually stick to your health resolutions once and for all.

Josiah Novak is the host of The Fit Man Project podcast and the founder of True Transformation. He is back to tell us why we keep failing at our health resolutions and the secrets to creating a plan that we can succeed at.

Get ready to transform your body in 2018 and beyond!

Don’t be afraid to sit down and create a plan, and don’t be afraid to reach out for help. – @JosiahFitness #NewYears #resolutions #men #dads #fathers #2018 #fitness Click To Tweet

 

Heads up: The name of the show for 2018 will be changed to the Dad Edge Podcast. There will be no change in the content or the website, just the new show name and logo. Let us know how you like it!

Josiah Novak

Josiah Novak has been a guest on The Good Project several times. Josiah came from four generations of divorce and abuse. As an adult, he went through a tough time with weight gain and depression. At one point, he was even suicidal. Josiah used fitness to get through living in a dark place.

Josiah didn’t have a father to look up to and it’s his mission is to change the legacy that he comes from and help other people do the same by establishing a foundation of health.

If we’re taking care of our health, we have a much better chance of coming out on top when it comes to the legacy we leave behind. – @JosiahFitness #men #dads #fathers #fitness Click To Tweet
