Ep. #33 Sustainable High Level Productivity w/ Brent Huras

Brent Huras is a productivity coach. He coaches his clients to reclaim their power, their wellness, their responsibility, their sense of purpose, and to reach their full potential. When we talk about and think about productivity, we normally think about getting as much stuff done as possible. When we don’t do as much as we think we should be doing, we accuse ourselves of being lazy, unproductive, and a failure. However, Brent teaches his clients that trying to force yourself to do more and be more isn’t going to work in the long run. What we need to do is to learn more about ourselves and why we do the things we do, what limiting beliefs we have, and ultimately learning to accept who we are before we can start making changes. In order to improve our lives, we also need to learn to cultivate self-discipline, focus, and clarity of perception. 

In Brent’s words, “What I do is coach people into sustainable, high-level productivity. This basically means being in a place where:

a) You know what your major aspirations are,

b) You have a strategy to make them happen,

c) You’re taking daily action on the strategy, and

d) You’re enjoying yourself as you go about all of it.

When I work with people I’m helping them cultivate all 4 of these major aspects as much as possible so that they can start operating from this state of productivity that I’m talking about. It makes life juicy, and it creates this really nice feeling of being *on track*.”

Hi, I’m Brent. The foremost focus of my life is humanity’s evolution. I think it’s safe to say now that our entire population is in a bit of a crunch-period right now. We’re beset by political, economic, and environmental concerns that need to be brought under control as quickly as possible. As it appears to me: every time a single human being starts to reclaim their power, their wellness, their responsibility, their sense of purpose, the scales are tipped in the right direction.

I Help People Reach Their Potential. I myself have emerged out of a deep depression wherein I felt utterly hopeless, powerless. That was in 2015, and since then I’ve been focusing on reaching out to as many people as I can to coach them into greater and greater wellness.

I Learn About Who You Are, And Get You Out Of Your Own Way. In my work with clients, I operate mostly from intuition. I’m gifted at listening and quickly locating the source of a person’s limiting beliefs or learned powerlessness. I have mapped out the process of cultivating the self-discipline, focus, and clarity that are required to get our lives in order and functioning better than ever before. As a result my clients get fitter, lose weight, curb their addictions, earn more money, and start projects that they’ve been unable to begin up until now.
