Welcome to Episode 133 of Building My Legacy.

In this podcast, we talk with Dr. Stan Harris — or, as he’s known, Dr. Breakthrough. With a fascinating background that includes a PhD in theology and a 10th degree black belt, Dr. Stan talks with us about his childhood experience of having to protect himself and feeling that nobody cared. Thanks to mentors and a mother who believed in him, he was able to have the all-important breakthroughs that enabled him to start on a most successful lifetime journey.

Dr. Stan emphasizes that a change in mindset is needed if you really want to achieve your goals. His motivational talks, books and breakthrough programs help empower people to break through any barrier that is hindering their success. That’s so important whether you’re an entrepreneur, leader or would-be leader — particularly if you’re in the process of building your legacy.

So if you want to know:

  • Why so many people have good ideas, but talk themselves out of them
  • How what you put into your head affects your heart and what comes to your hand
  • What H-O-P-E can stand for
  • Why success begins with your state of mind
  • How lies are the foundation of limiting beliefs
  • The key role mentors can play in your life
