How could one possibly go from that high of a high to that low of a low?
That’s part of Dr. Robb Kelly’s story.

[00:03 – 08:53] Introducing Dr. Robb to the Show
- Dr. Robb’s most embarrassing moment
- Dr. Robb’s powerful of going from addiction to doing what he loves
[08:54 – 19:43] The Difference Between Alcoholics and Addicts and What It Means to You
- Our neural pathways are MOSTLY self-sabotage
- Alcoholism is a disease – it’s a biochemical reaction in the brain
- Self-sabotage is part of alcoholism: Alcoholism sets in and then the mind becomes set on self-sabotage
- Alcoholism is a SYMPTOM of a root cause
- They’re all born with an addictive personality
[19:44 – 24:54] What To Do When You’re Feeling Isolated And Alone
- You’re MEANT to go through that struggle…have to go through suffering to LEARN how to make your impact
- The quicker you know you’re chosen to do certain work and it was your niche in life, the better I started living life myself, and enjoying life
- God will keep you there until you’ve passed the test
- Realize you are born with a 1 million dollar mind – stop hanging around 10 cent minds
- The only thing that’s stopping you is YOU
- We’re ALL empowered – STOP LISTENING to people’s opinions and them telling you what you can’t do
[24:55 – 28:25] When You’re Stuck Listening To Other People’s (Negative) Stories
- Realize your dream is still there
- The only people who see your worth are people who put you down
- Walk over and take that position – you don’t beg for it, you just take it
- There’s no such thing as failures – it’s just MORE experience
- Find your higher power and let him remind you of how powerful you are
- Start ACTING the life you want today – dress accordingly, speak accordingly, act accordingly
[28:26 – 33:44] The Terminal Illness That You Must Get Rid Of If You Want To Excel In Life
- Defeating self-dialogue…it’s DANGEROUS
- MUST Stack your subconscious brain with “I love you” 10x in the mirror – have to start lodging it in the subconscious so it gets to your prefrontal cortex
- Whenever you think something is impossible, through in an apostrophe => “I’m Possible”
- If you’re feeling less than, go out and compliment someone else (dopamine releases when we compliment people)
[33:45 – 41:53] What It Takes To Break Addictions
- STOP isolating yourself!
