Secrets for an Awesome Life

Joey Mascio

Have you ever seen someone completely enjoying life? Living to their fullest, not brought down by anyone or anything, totally having their stuff together? It's almost like they know secrets you don't. This show is about those secrets. Don't worry. Not very many people know these secrets. Or if they do, they don't apply them. These secrets are skills and mindsets not taught in any college or high school course. We may have heard of them, but no one taught us how to actually apply them to our lives. Which is a shame, because when you apply them, your life becomes more awesome. That's why I created this podcast, for teens who are looking to up the awesome level in their lives. I am Joey Mascio and I’m a Teen & Young Adult Life Coach. I was certified at the Life Coach School where I was trained by Master Life Coach Brooke Castillo. I've also gone through Jody Moore's Advanced Certification. I take the strategies and tools I’ve learned from these two powerful women, and lots of my own, and adapt them for teenagers and young adults. I am also a middle school teacher and counselor, a proud father of three, and a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Fail BIG!

Untapped Power in Your Brain

How to Make Grief Fulfilling

Sometimes life serves us up some grief gruel. It’s not the tastiest thing on the menu, but it’s on the table anyway. Someone we love dies, we get broken up with, or we don’t get that scholarship we wanted. What can we do? We have to choke it down, right?

Becoming Antifragile

If fragile is something that breaks easily under pressure, then what is Antifragile? (Hint: it’s NOT simple something that doesn’t break easily). I talk about that today and how teens can become antifragile in their lives.

Performance Anxiety with Jon Skidmore

There are performances throughout our lives, whether they are auditioning for the Jazz Band, taking the ACT, or talking to someone we’re crushing on. How do you manage the anxiety that comes with it?? I talk to psychologist and performance coach Jon Skidmore about tools that teens can use to

Don't Let Other People Write Your Story

We should be the authors of our thoughts and our opinions, especially since they create the world we live in. But how many times do you let OTHER people write your stories about yourself, others, or the world around you? Take up the pen yourself and don’t let other people

Sidekick to Hero

We were all born to be the hero of our own life, but sometimes we feel like a sidekick. If you want to be able to go from sidekick to hero whenever you want to, you need to do two things: 1) recognize your sidekick thoughts and 2) create powerful

Dreams and Identity (LIVE!)

I’m at a conference this week with my mentor, my Yoda, Jody Moore. So this episode I broadcast live from my minivan with a special guest and friend, Tyson Bradley, and we talk about our dreams and how our self-perceived identity can help us or stop us from achieving them.

The Worlds We Build

Ready for something that is trippy yet true? We live inside a world we build with our mind. Our brain takes the facts around it and connects them together with stories and viola! The world we live in. If you don’t like the world you live in, you can always
