#4 – Jeremy Herider – Creating lasting, quality habits, we are proud to pass down to the next generation.
Originally from Lancaster, California, Jeremy is a proud Dad of two beautiful, amazing daughters, Taylor and Ryan. He found his strength as an athlete from an early age and was a three-sport letterman in high school and an MVP in baseball. He graduated from Gonzaga University, where he was an All-Pac10 Infielder. His pro baseball career took off not long after. But his drive didn’t stop there, and neither made his list of accomplishments. Jeremy was the first contracted player with the Arizona Diamondbacks to get a hit in the organization’s history. He was later drafted by the LA Reign, officially making him a two-sport professional athlete. More recently, Jeremy has been named a CrossFit Champion, taking home 1st Place for the Deadlift/Box Jump event. Of course, now Jeremy has shifted his focus once again as a productivity consultant for Fortune 500 companies, private business coach, and motivational speaker.
Jeremy’s Optimal Self Coaching program and podcast boil down this lifetime of achievement into tangible, attainable habits that anyone can adopt for success. No success story, including Jeremy’s, happens by accident. And yours begin as well with Optimal Self.

Is having balance a myth?
“And when I say balance is a myth, is it work-life balance, and it’s primarily a myth for everybody because most people spend a lot of time on a job or at work. What I teach and what we talk about with optimal self is we call it a hundred or nothing. And what I mean by that is that each and everything you do needs to get a hundred percent of you. If you’re going to be with your kids, then turn your damn phone off, plug it in, leave it in the other room, spend the time with them, be with them, and be in that – yeah.”
Goal Setting with the end in mind!
“It just means I got to know where I’m going if I’m ever going to get there. So I have to be able to picture it. I got to be able to know what that means. So we have to have that end goal. And sometimes, that can be a big goal. It could be a Hall of Famer or 20 years in the major leagues and a hall of Famer that can be the end goal. You make that the goal; see that as the goal. And then again, do you see yourself doing it? Do you believe it’s possible? Do you think you’re capable? Are you willing to put in the work? Now? What happens though Rick is where I want people to understand. And in goal setting, the biggest mistake is that now we become very result-oriented towards the goal.”
What is identity Capital?
“Identity capital is building who I am. Depositing capital Is your wealth. Think about yourself. We have to be able to deposit into that bank constantly. So if you say, hey, I want to lose 50 pounds. Like I am overweight. I am tired of this. Everything hurts. I’m borderline diabetic. Those are all the choices that you’ve made. We have to change that identity and to do that, we’ve got to start building some capital. So what would that look like? ……….”
Generational Habits vs. Generational Wealth
“So your life is about behaviors, your habits, you, everything that you have right now in your life. Your bank account is a reflection of your spending habits. Your weight is a reflection of your nutrition habits or exercise habits. Your no joke. If you have children, how many of you have ever said, remember when they were little, and they were learning words and they were learning phrases, and you might’ve said something to a friend or your wife or to your husband, whoever’s listening, or your spouse. And then, all of a sudden, your kid just repeated it. And you’re like, oh my God, it could have been one of those F words or something. Oh, it happens. They’re watching right now. These are generational habits. We all have habits. And like it or not, people around you are affected by your habits.”

This episode is brought to you by Passion Brands CBD. Passion Brands carries a very high-quality broad-spectrum CBD with zero THC and comes in tinctures (which for those that don’t know are drops taken sublingually under your tongue), soft gels, gummies, salve, and they even carry dog treats for your pup. Yes, there is even CBD for dogs, and it works wonders for those that need it. For those of you who don’t know what CBD is, they offer a lot of education on their website, and you can learn how people are using it in their everyday lives for a variety of functions. I personally use CBD, and while I can’t vouch for everyone, it does assist me with focus and being more relaxed when I’m doing my work. I also take it at night sometimes for help with sleep, and when I hurt my back, the salve worked wonders, so I highly recommend it. Passion Brand CBD uses Nanoemulsion technology, C02 exaction (which is great); their soft gels are water-soluble, and the CBD is allergy-friendly, including gluten-free. They offer full COA (that’s, certificate of authenticity) lab results on their site and via QR code and are both tested in-house and by a third party to ensure optimal quality control. This means you can rest assured what they say is in the product is actually in it—nothing more and nothing less. You can find them at www.passion-brands.com, and ill also link all the social media in the show notes. Please give them a look.
