Episode 86: Dr. Noah
Chelsea: Hi, it’s Dr. Chelsea, and I have a really interesting conversation to share with you today about AFFORMATIONS, and I mean AFFORMATIONS with an O not affirmations the way you might be used to them. Former professional dancer, Dr. Noah is now a mental coach to the stars, and he teaches his clients about the power of asking the right questions to help plant more positive thought seeds in your brain. So, if you’ve ever used affirmations with your dancers, listen in today and consider a different way. It’s a subtle change, but it might make a huge difference for you and your dancers.
[Motivational Intro Music]
Welcome to The Passion for Dance podcast. I’m Dr. Chelsea, a former professional dancer and a dance team coach turned sports psychologist. This podcast focuses on four main pillars: motivation, resilience, mindset, and community. Each week, you’ll learn actionable strategies, mindsets, and tips to teach your dancers more than good technique. This is a podcast where we can all make a lasting impact and share our passion for dance. Let’s do this!
Chelsea: Hi, Dr. Noah. Thank you so much for joining me today!
Noah: Well, it’s a pleasure, Dr. Chelsea! [Laughs]
Chelsea: We were just having a fun side conversation on how we use the doctor as this, yeah, it’s there but neither one of us really care.
Chelsea: Will you tell my audience a little bit about you?
Noah: Absolutely Well, I help people make more in 12 weeks than they made in the last 12 months. How’s that for a headline, right?
Chelsea: I like that headline!
Noah: You know what I mean? So what I do is I not only help people make a lot more money, but I also help people get their life back. There’s so many people out there teaching “the hustle and the grind” and, “I work all the time, 18, 19, 20 hours a day,” and I’m going, “Are you nuts?” I mean, who wants that? That’s insane! And so, I literally help people not only make more money which is great, it’s a wonderful thing right? But, I mean, get your life back, right?
Chelsea: I love that. So, for most of my audience, because we’re in the arts and because we are teachers, the money side is one of those like, okay, it’s there, but I didn't choose this for the money, right? That’s not what this is about.
Noah: That’s right.
Chelsea: Like you said, it’s nice. It’s a bonus.
Chelsea: But I think what drew me to what you were talking about was the, kind of like you said, just getting more control and kind of getting our life back so you're using your time how you want to use it. So, will you talk a little bit more about the getting your life back part? What does that mean to you?
2:40 – Getting Your Life Back
Noah: Oh, absolutely. In fact, I can give you a very specific example from one of my clients who is in the gymnastics area which is very similar to the dance world. By the way, I didn't tell you this, but I am also a former professional ballet dancer.
Noah: And so, I was with the Richmond Ballet, the Boston Ballet, Hartford Ballet, and that’s how I actually got started. So, you're absolutely right. I mean, I’m a creative person.
Chelsea: That’s amazing! I love finding the dance connections when I didn't know they were there.
Noah: Yeah, and so, you're absolutely right. I mean, we don't get into this for the money, you know? It's because — when I was in school, back in the ‘80s (I graduated in ‘84 which was, of course, long before the internet, right?). And so, I had really good grades. I was one of the smarter kids. And so, back then, the only choices that you had with the so-called “smart” kids was to be a doctor or a lawyer, and I’m like none of those appeal to me. I mean, nothing against people who are doctors or lawyers but it’s like I don't like hospitals, I don't like being around sick people. And lawyers is like — lawyers. I mean, what do you need to say about that, right?
Noah: So, when I was very little, I was born double-jointed so I couldn't walk. And so, I had to wear braces like Forrest Gump just to be able to walk, and so, when I was seven years old, my parents took me to a pediatrician who said that I should take dance lessons to strengthen my legs, strengthen my core. So, I actually started taking dance lessons when I was seven. I started with tap dancing. And then my dance teacher who was a man — it was actually a husband and wife. They had been on Broadway. They’re very, very great people. And so, he said that I should take ballet because, of course, it’s the core of all dance and really helped me strengthen everything. And I said (because I was a kid and I was a boy), “You’re not getting me in tights! That is not gonna happen.”
Well, finally, he kept bugging me and bugging me, and finally, when I was 15 I relented. I said, “Okay, fine. I’ll take a ballet class.” So, prior to that, it had just been basically me and him and a couple other boys in semi-private tap dance lessons. So, in my first ballet lesson, I was 15 years old, I walked in, and it’s me and 30 girls. And so, I said, “Why didn’t you tell me before?” So, anyway, it was awesome. I became a professional at 18, and then I had to retire at the age of 22 because of a career-ending injury. So I had a pretty short career because of that injury.
Noah: And so, then, I was like, well, now what am I gonna do with the rest of my life? I can’t dance anymore. I’m out. So what do I do? And so, I just self-taught how to use a computer and eventually how to build websites, and that’s what I’ve been doing the last 25 years now is helping people make a lot of money but also to get their life back.
5:45 – The Freedom Lifestyle Formula
So, going back to that point, one of the things I teach my clients and talk about is what I call the Freedom Lifestyle Formula. Now, a Freedom Lifestyle Formula, really, to me, comes down to four basic elements, and that is time, energy, relationships, and money. Now, when you think about what is freedom, what is happiness, what is fulfilment (whatever word you want to put in there) it really comes down to these four elements. So, let me give you an example.
Imagine if I said to you, “Okay, I’m gonna give you a million dollars, and you have no time to enjoy it. How’s that sound?” Well, that doesn't sound very good. “Okay, well, I’m gonna give you a million dollars, and you have to be miserable all the time. How’s that sound?” No, that’s not very good. “Okay, I’m gonna give you a million dollars and you have nobody to enjoy it with. You can't spend any time with anybody else. You have to be all by yourself.” Well, this sucks. What are you doing, right?
Noah: So, when I put it in those terms people go, “Yeah, you're right. It’s not just about the money, right?”
Noah: But, on the other hand, money is important, right? Money is a nice thing to have 'cause, I mean, when I was a professional dancer, I was making about $150 a week. I mean, that’s about what I was making and, yes, that’s as little money as it sounds.
Noah: And so, that wasn't very fun either, let’s just face it.
Noah: I was on the Pop-Tarts and Ginger Ale diet back then. That was pretty much all I could eat, all I could afford. And so, having money gives you options and choices in life. That’s how I look at it. So, when you have an abundance of time, energy, relationships, and money, that’s when you’re living, what we like to call, the Freedom Lifestyle.
Chelsea: Okay. Oh, I like that. I was looking through some of the stuff that you’ve written and put out there, and I saw this quote that I would love to kind of unpack with you a little bit 'cause it seems very aligned with stuff that I talk about. It says, “To change your life, change the thought seeds you’re planting.”
Chelsea: So much of that I talk about all the time. The self-talk is one of the few things you can control. So, will you share a little bit more about where that was coming from?
7:45 – To Change Your Life, Change the Thought Seeds You’re Planting
Noah: Absolutely. So, if you think about books like Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill which was written over a century ago, he talks about the infinite intelligence (or you can say God or the Universe, whatever term you want to use). So, that is the soil that all of us are planting seeds in. So, what seeds are we planting? Well, we’re planting, as I call them, thought seeds, right? So you’re planting thought seeds every moment of every day. I mean, whether you're awake, asleep, conscious, or unconscious, you're planting these thought seeds. The problem is twofold.
Number one, most people don't realize the thought seeds that they're actually planting, and then number two, they don't know how to change them. In other words, if you're not getting the results you want in life, if you don't have the time, energy, relationships, and money that you would like to have, so you're like, “Well, what do I do? How do I get the time, energy, relationships, and money that I want?”
So, one of the ways that we start with our clients and our programs and our courses and our books is we look at the thought seeds you're planting right now, right? And most people are panting, as I call it, lousy thought seeds, right?
Noah: And so, they're saying things to themselves like, “Why am I so stupid? Why am I so fat? Why can't I lose weight? Why isn't my business growing? Why can't I get the right customers or clients or patients? Why does nothing ever work out for me? Why is there more month left at the end of the money?” Right?
Noah: [Laughs] When you ask lousy questions, you get lousy answers. So that’s what I’m calling lousy thought seeds. So, I created and invested this process, this method, that really helps people to change their thought seeds directly instead of using the old affirmation method, I invented a process, a method, called AFFORMATIONS.
Noah: Really change your thought seeds and change your habits, change your results, and change your life.
Chelsea: Okay, so that makes sense to me. I want to dig into affirmations versus AFFORMATIONS ‘cause I think my audience understands affirmations. It’s something we’ve talked about, and I think you're right, it’s discussed in the sport world, in the business world. That’s a very common thing. So, how is AFFORMATIONS different?
10:01 Affirmations vs. AFFORMATIONS
Noah: Right, absolutely. So, if you’ve ever read a self-help book or ever listened to any of these gurus out there, everybody says basically the same thing, right? “Use these affirmations, positive statements that you intend to change what you want, that are designed to help you get what you want.” So, it’s a statement designed to get you what you want.
So, one of the things that I like to do whether I’m working with private clients or groups or keynote speeches, I say to people, “All right, we’re gonna use an affirmation just like the gurus taught us, like you’ve read in every book you’ve ever read, and I want you to say, “I am rich,”” and everybody goes, “I am rich!” You know what happens next? Everybody starts laughing like you just did, right?
Noah: They start laughing, and I go, “What are you laughing at?” They go, “Well, I’m not rich,” and I say, “But you just said you were!” And they go, “Yeah, but I don't believe it.” See, now, isn't that the case with the old affirmation method, the way that we’ve been taught for decades, over a century, really, of this one thing, right? This one tool that they gave us, and they basically said this is the only tool you’ve got.
By the way, studies were done. A scientific study actually showed that (get this) 75% of people who use the old affirmation method actually end up more frustrated than before.
Noah: Meaning it only works 25% of the time. So, imagine if you had a smartphone that only worked 25% of the time. Would you keep using that phone or would you maybe trade it in for a better one, right? So that’s what I invented. I invented a better phone, one that works all the time. So, what I discovered was actually this process, this method, that I call the AFFORMATIONS method. Now, what does that mean?
Well, so, this was actually back in April of 1997 (so 25 years ago, amazingly). I’ve been teaching this for 25 years, writing all these books, and helping a lot of people. And so, the point is that an AFFORMATION is, instead of a statement, it’s an empowering question because I realized that the human brain responds automatically to questions not statements. For example, if I were to ask you right now, “Why is the sky blue? Why is the sky blue?” Now, what instantly just happened in your brain?
Chelsea: I’m trying to answer it.
Noah: Exactly. Your brain is searching for the answer even if you don't know the answer, it’s like you're searching for a file on your computer or a Google search, right? You're searching, and the brain has (I call it) the embedded predisposition factor of the brain. That basically means you have an automatic search function in your brain. When you ask a question, your brain has to search for an answer. “Why is the sky blue?” It’s searching its files. “The sky is blue because…,” I don't know. But it’s looking, right? It’s searching. You can't not do it. So I said wait a second. If the human mind is automatically searching for answers to questions, why are we going around making statements we don't believe? Why don't we just cut out the middleman? This was 25 years ago. Then I say, “Well, what would that look like? Well, let’s see. You’ve got this statement or affirmation, “I am rich,” to which your brain goes, “Yeah, right.” You don't believe this statement 75% of the time.” So I said, well, if that’s the statement, then what would the question be? And then I said, why am I so rich? Why am I so rich? Now, when you form that question in your brain, what immediately starts to happen? You start to search for the answer, right?
Noah: So I said, “Wait a second. What if instead of saying statements we don't believe, why don't we just cut out the middleman, go right to the question, and that would instantly change the thought seeds we’re planting and, thereby, enable us to change our habits, change our results, and change our life. And I said, “Holy cow. I think I just invented something!” And so, 25 years ago that’s what I invited, and you can see it’s called AFFORMATIONS, and you can go to afformations.com and you can actually learn more about my AFFORMATIONS method.
Noah: I mean, that’s one of the reasons that we’ve been able to help people not only make more money but literally get their lives back by changing the thought seeds they're planting using my AFFORMATIONS method.
Chelsea: I like that, and I will definitely put that link in the show notes. For people that are listening, it’ll be right there for you. I’m thinking how mostly teenage, college-aged dancers are the primary who I’m working with, and you're right, I do get a lot of that, I guess, mild resistance but resistance to the affirmation of, “I am graceful. I am a beautiful dancer. I am talented.”
Chelsea: They kind of do, like, “Eh, but no, I don't feel it in my heart. It feels weird,” right?
Noah: That’s right. Well, what I call that is you're bashing up against your own brain. Okay?
Noah: So what a statement does is it’s bashing your own brain. “I’m graceful. No I’m not.” “I’m talented. No, I’m not.” “I can do this. No I can’t.” Right?
Chelsea: Yeah. Uh-huh.
Noah: So there’s nowhere to go with a statement, but if you were to say, “Why am I so graceful?” Hmm, now your brain’s searching for the answer. “Why am I so talented?” And you're like oh! You literally open your mind to the possibility, and we have so many stories of not only my AFFORMATIONS but everything that I teach that has helped people, but just opening the possibility. First, it’s bashing your own brain and it’s, very simply, a function of the tool you're using. I’ll give you an example.
Imagine if somebody asked you to drive a nail into a wall, right? You say, “Oh, I could probably do that. Yeah, sure.” But then they hand you a chainsaw. You're like, “Uh, okay,” and they go, “Come on! You can do it! Set your goals. Think positive!” “Okay…” See, they're being encouraging. That’s great, but you gave me the wrong tool, right? So what I do is I give you a hammer, and I’m like, “You want to try it now?” And they go, “Oh, yeah,” [Hammering Sound] and it’s easy. And so, that’s the point. Affirmation, it’s not that it’s wrong. There’s nothing wrong with a chainsaw. It just doesn't work for trying to drive a nail into a wall, right? That’s all we’re trying to do. All we’re doing is we’re working with human beliefs. A thought is just a belief and a belief is just a thought. So, if you change the beliefs but, remember, we’ve only been given the one tool. Not that it’s a bad tool. Not that it’s wrong. It just doesn't work that well. It’s not really designed — it works great for some people. The vast minority of humans (for most humans) we’re like, “I don't feel that graceful. I don't feel that talented. I’m not rich,” etcetera, right?
So that’s why when people discover my AFFORMATIONS method and start using it they're like, “Oh, my god. This actually works.” I’m like, yeah, it’s nice to have a phone that actually works, isn't it?
Chelsea: [Laughs] Well, and I was thinking about how when we switched around how am I graceful or how am I talented, I like that it shifts the definition of what that word is to you because I think that’s where I went with, “Ugh, I’m not talented or I’m not good at this.” It’s like, “Well, how am I good at this?” I’m like, “Oh, I actually am making progress in some ways.” It helps you see maybe I am good at the effort. I don't have it yet, but I am good at the effort or how am I graceful? Maybe it’s like I always get yelled at for my feet. Okay, that’s not it, but I am graceful in other ways, and if I can say that, yeah, I can see that shift. I like that recognizing a different way of seeing it. I can see it getting unstuck, I guess is what I'm saying.
Noah: That’s right. Exactly.
Chelsea: Yeah, absolutely. I think most of my audience, like I said, are kind of the teachers, the educators, the coaches who are trying to help their dancers who are feeling that stuck, right? So, will you share advice and thoughts for the educators who are dealing with their dancers that are trying the affirmations or just are flat out like I don't believe you? I think, especially — if I can actually rephrase this. Let me think. I think coaches and teachers are the sources of encouragement. We’re usually the ones, like you said, who are like, “You’ve got this! I believe in you,” and I hear from so many of them, “It doesn't matter what I say. I believe in them. They don't believe in themselves.”
Noah: That’s right.
Chelsea: They don't believe it. So, thoughts and advice on helping our dancers believe in themselves or using that tool in that way?
18:23 – Advice on Helping our Dancers Believe in Themselves
Noah: Absolutely. Well, first of all, get my books. [Laughs] I know that sounds terrible, but when people learn my AFFORMATIONS method, they get so excited. I’ll give you a quick example from one of my clients who was a gymnast and owns a gymnast training facility. And so, her name’s Aubrey, and she had been working really, really hard, very, very devoted, loves her kids, loves her students (just like I know everybody listening to this program does), and working really, really hard. In fact, have you ever heard of the phrase “working yourself to death”? That’s actually what she was doing. She was literally working herself to death, and she was working so hard. She was so devoted, so hardworking, that she sacrificed literally her own health to try to help her kids and also to try to grow her business ‘cause you’ve got to keep the lights on and so forth.
Noah: But she had been working so hard, so long for 15 years and was seeing no growth at all in her business, okay? Now, she came to one of my trainings and hired me as her coach, and I taught her my AFFORMATIONS method and the other things that we do ‘cause it’s more than just the AFFORMATIONS, but that’s the foundation of everything.
Noah: And so, what she found was that, number one, she wasn't giving herself permission to take any time off. That was just one thing that she wasn't even consciously aware of. And so, when she realized that, well, wait a minute. If we put better systems in place so that you can take more time off and make more money and help your students more, she didn't even have any knowledge that any of this existed because if nobody tells you then how are you supposed to know?
Anyways, the long story short is that in less than one year of us working together, she more than doubled her business after 15 years of working herself to death and seeing no growth at all. She doubled in less than a year just putting these systems in place. And so, what does that mean for you and for the people listening?
Well, first of all, that’s when I say you do need to study this. You need to learn because it’s a tool. It’s a strategy, and building your business or anything, really, having a career, whether it’s in dance, whether it’s in gymnastics, whether it’s in Wall Street, finance, anything, it’s kind of like building a house. There’s a lot of elements to it but you have to have the right foundation and you have to have the tools to actually build the structure. And so, we call it the three parts that you have to have in place. You have to have the right plan, you have to have the right tools, and you have to have the right support, right?
The right plan means you need to know what to do, and if nobody shows you what to do, how are you supposed to know, right? It’s really, really hard.
The second element is you have to have the right tools. That’s how to do it. My AFFORMATIONS method is a tool that really, really works, and it works 100% of the time because you’re actually already doing this anyway. Every human on this earth is already using my AFFORMATIONS method. The only two problems is, number one, of course, they don't know they're doing it, and number two, most people are doing it in a very disempowering way. And so, when you have the right tools, then you can build your house.
Then, the third element you must have is the right support. You have to have the people in your corner believing you. So, just like everybody listening to this program, if you're a dance teacher, a gym owner, whatever you are, you do believe in your students. But if they don't have the tools to believe in themselves, then you just keep bashing your head against their beliefs.
Noah: And so, giving these tools, getting access to these tools, you're both on the same page, literally on the same page.
Noah: And that way, you don't have to be trying to convince someone. I mean, when I was a professional dancer or even when I was in college studying dance and then became a professional, I never believed in myself. I had zero self-esteem ever. I mean, I never ever believed in myself, and see, my ballet teachers and the people who were working there (the ballet mistress, the ballet master that I worked with), some of them were encouraging and some of them weren't. I mean, that’s the way that it is in any industry you want to talk about. See, I didn't have these tools. And so, at the age of 25, I decided to commit suicide because I was so depressed.
Noah: And so, because I didn't have access to any of these tools that, now, not only do I have but I teach them in my books and my courses and my coaching, and so, I know what it’s like to have zero (you could say less than zero) self-esteem. So, when people come to me with low self-esteem (which is, let’s face it, most people), I know what it’s like to be there at that very, very less than zero self-esteem. So, the message is what this means for you and everyone watching, what it means is if I can do it, that means anybody can do it.
Chelsea: Yeah. Oh, that’s really powerful to think about. I like that it’s a tool, as you said, that’s just different from what you’ve been trying, and I think there’s some who are feeling stuck, who are feeling like it’s not working, and I was talking about toxic positivity recently on my podcast. Have you heard that term?
Noah: [Laughs] Yes. Oh, yeah.
Chelsea: So, I feel like this kind of aligns with that in the sense of when we feel like we’re supposed to just be happy, just pretend like everything is always good and convince yourself that it’s good, and if you talk about it enough, it will be okay. I like this shift in perspective.
Noah: Well, and, of course, social media exacerbates that times a billion, you know?
Chelsea: Of course.
Noah: And so, I didn't have that when I was growing up. I’m like thank god! [Laughs]
Chelsea: [Laughs] Me neither.
Noah: That would have been the end, probably, because oh, my god. It’s just awful. All that social media is is comparing yourself to other people’s — let me say it this way: comparing your real life to other people’s highlight reels.
Noah: ‘Cause that’s what people post on social media. They don't post real life. They post fake. My favorite is “unfiltered.” Really?
Chelsea: It might be photographically unfiltered but it was still staged.
Noah: Yeah, exactly! There’s no such thing. Anyway, so, for today’s young people, they have to deal with that which, you know, I never had to deal with that when I was growing up ‘cause it wasn't there, thank god. So, it’s much harder for today’s young people for that very reason. And so, yeah, it is very vital and crucial that we give our young people these tools that actually work so that it’s not a kind of toxic positivity that you're just always pretending or just having to put a happy face on when maybe something’s not right or you're not the way that you want. Anyway, that’s what’s so important, giving people (especially young people) access to these tools that now do exist and are readily available.
Chelsea: Yeah. I always like to try to finish with at least one tangible go-try-this kind of thing. Can you put your dancer hat on and the AFFORMATIONS. Is there one that we could start with? Like, something that our teachers could go try with their students in class tomorrow? What’s a good starting affirmation question?
26:13 – A Starting AFFORMATION
Noah: Yeah, well, I’ve already given you several. So you can just use some of the ones that I’ve already shared with you. For yourself, you would say, “Why am I so graceful?” and, “Why do I believe in myself?” That would be a really, really powerful one.
Chelsea: That’s a good one.
Noah: By the way, we have a brand new store. It’s called AFFORM Wear. You can just go to afformwear.com and see. We have AFFORM shirts and AFFORM socks. So, we have four core AFFORMATIONS shirts, and they are, “Why am I so happy?” “Why am I so abundant?” “Why am I so healthy?” and, my favorite is, “Why am I enough?” Let’s face it. Especially in the world of ballet or gymnastics, anything involved with health and the human body, there are a lot of body issues. I mean, let’s face it. And so, for me — and, of course, I’m a man so I didn't have to deal with half of this stuff that the female dancers had to — but the point is that I still never felt like enough. No matter what I did I was never enough.
Noah: And so, just AFFORMing why am I enough can literally change a person’s life, you know?
Noah: And so, if you want to have those T-shirts, you can wear the T-shirts to remind yourself why am I enough. You can have your AFFORM socks for why am I enough or whatever. Anyway, the point is we just want to make sure that today’s young people and, let’s face it, all of us — I mean, we all need this, right?
Noah: Not just young people but all of us need to be reminded that we are enough. But, see, if you just keep going around saying, “I’m enough. I’m enough.” You're like, “Eh, I don't feel like enough.”
Noah: The irony of that is just the tool that you’ve been taught which is the old tool, again, that works some of the time (not much, but some of the time), but why not just use a better tool that works all the time? “Why am I enough?”
Noah: Then your brain goes, “Yeah, why am I enough?” And then you start AFFORMing, and that is the thing that can lead to literally changing your life.
Chelsea: Yeah, I was just thinking the why and how, that both of those would be different but powerful ways to think about it. Why am I enough is helping you highlight that you already are, and then how am I enough is, again, finding maybe in what areas and what that actually looks like. Maybe this is just because of where I am in my phase of life right now with young children, but I went to, as a mom, we constantly have the I’m not enough. It’s like how am I enough as a mom or why am I enough, and I can feel a very different shift.
Noah: That’s right. Just so you know, my AFFORMATIONS method is a specific methodology of forming questions that start with “why.” Not that “how” is a wrong question. It's not wrong. It’s just not an AFFORMATION in the way that I’ve been teaching for the last quarter-century.
Noah: Again, you can read more about that.
Chelsea: Yeah, I’d love that.
Noah: But I explain why “why” is, in fact, more powerful than “how,” and why “why” beats “how.” [Laughs]
Noah: That’s a tough sentence to say, by the way.
Chelsea: That is a tough sentence! That makes sense. I’m glad you clarified.
Chelsea: Okay, so, then, if people are now intrigued and interested in this AFFORMATIONS, how can we find more about you and your work?
29:40 – More About Dr. Noah and His Work
Noah: Yeah, absolutely. Wow, gosh, there are so many. First of all, you can just go to my name which is noahstjohn.com, just like it sounds. We have just a ton of resources on there. For the Millionaire AFFORMATIONS book, you go to getmillionairebook.com (very easy to remember), and also AFFORMATIONS.com. If you’d like to check out our AFFORM Wear store and get some AFFORM shirts, AFFORM socks, it’s afformwear.com. Who wouldn’t want to AFFORM, “Why am I enough? Why am I so happy? Why am I so healthy?”
Noah: So, it’s a great way to show off. We call it having your outfit match your inner thoughts.
Chelsea: Oh, I love that. Thank you. Again, I’ll make sure all those links are there and ready for you, if you're listening, in the show notes or you can see it on the website. I’d love to challenge our listeners today to try to answer that for yourself: “Why am I happy today?”
Noah: [Laughs] Exactly.
Chelsea: See how you feel. Thank you so much for your time, Dr. Noah. Any last thoughts? Anything else you want to share with us before you leave?
Noah: Well, I just want everybody to know that I am very passionate about helping creative people, artists and athletes (which, let’s face it, dancers and gymnasts are artists and athletes). It’s very, very challenging. I lived it, so I know exactly what it’s like. I know that life very well inside and out. So, if you want to reach out, just contact me on our website. I’d be more than happy to help you as well.
Chelsea: Wonderful. Well, thank you so much for your time today. It was lovely to chat with you.
Noah: My pleasure!
