It was reported that roughly 1 in 20 people report having at least one hallucination in a lifetime. Maybe it was drug induced or simply a dream. Either way, how is it that you can have vivid imagery about what feels like reality in the moment? Dr. Jonas Kaplan joins Tom in this conversation to discuss all the ways your brain is filling in the gaps of its own break in knowledge. The brain is truly fascinating to study and so important to understand when you want to be more open-minded and question your beliefs or get a better perception of and understanding of what reality truly is. Part of seeing reality as it really is versus how your brain predicts it to be is coming face to face with information that challenges the beliefs you hold. Jonas and Tom explore research studies that reveal the freaky nature of how our brains really work and ways you can hack your way past the overprotective nature of your brain.

That's where beliefs come from.” [2:29] “The brain wants to create a consistent view of the world. And that provides a motivation to find information that's consistent with what we think.” [8:49] “Everything's so interconnected that each region of the brain is not corresponding to one particular mental function for the most part...” [24:30] “Most of us organize our lives in such a way that we never even really have to encounter evidence that challenges our beliefs.” [29:35] “Feelings are the brain signals that there's some kind of a challenge going on to the body.” [33:37] “There is probably some value in maintaining our beliefs, and protecting them to some degree, and also in sharing them with other people and building the connections that we have with other people based on shared models of reality” [38:01] Follow Jonas Kaplan:Website: http://www.jonaskaplan.com/Podcast: https://floatpodcast.libsyn.com/Twitter: https://twitter.com/jonas_kaplan

Strong work ethic not only gets the job done, it pulls a driven person through some of the most difficult situations that would deter the common person from even trying. In this episode, you're going to hear how some of Hollywood's most successful people have decades long careers with monumental success. If you think their talent was enough, guess again. These actors and actresses work just as hard at their skills and their craft as Michal Jordan or Kobe Bryant before the big game.

I want to access everything that there is for me to get until there's nothing left.” Meagan Good [28:08]“So to actually have true freedom, we have to take certain risks. We have to be responsible, more responsible for certain things for ourselves, who we are constantly investigating and interrogating our better selves, to say I'm going to be a little bit better at this tomorrow.” Matthew McConaughey [42:55]

Part of what he proposes is that you keep an open mind and be aware that the ideas and images people are so strongly influenced by are in fact myths and stories. The version of what you see in your reality matters to what you decide to see and live your life by.“It doesn't matter what you look at, it matters what you see.” -Henry David ThoreauSo much of what the world is and who we are is not understood. To think you fully grasp the complexities of consciousness, matter, space and time would be wildly ignorant. Iain perfectly quotes psychologist William James, “ignorance is a sea and knowledge is a drop in that ocean” In this conversation Iain explores ideas of how little we truly know about the cognitive function of the left and right hemispheres of the brain. He highlights the beauty and complexity of order in the universe even where we are unable to fully grasp and understand the order. He's calling people to be open to the seemingly random chaos and meaninglessness of life to find a better way to live and a better vision of the world we live in. The path of doing so challenges you to embrace the many paradoxical reactions occurring all around us in nature.

It's the how not the what. So they do the ‘what' of the same things, but they do the how of them completely differently.” [12:47]“The emotional brain is as much the left hemisphere as the right. It specializes in anger, irritability, and doesn't like being crossed.” [28:43]“Neurology and theology are not at war with one another, they are seeing the same realities just at slightly different levels and in different ways.” [35:42]“If you want to know about a human being, the brain is a pretty central place to start.” [39:32]“I would be giving the wrong impression if I said that I know anything about what God is, or I'm a believer in whatever, but it will also be equally wrong to say, ‘I dismiss this or I don't believe it'.” [56:21]“Belief is not about believing six impossible things before breakfast. It's about a disposition of your mind towards the world.” [57:36]“We need to be able to keep away from this way of reducing our understanding, keeping ourselves open to all and wonder, keeping ourselves with a little humility about what our intellects can actually do, and having compassion for people who disagree with us.” [59:57]“We should live in a world where there is virtually nothing that you can't say, it's how you say it.” [1:11:56]“There are four main pathways to the truth, science, reason, intuition, and imagination. Any worldview that tries to get by without paying due respect to all four of these is bound to fail.” Iain McGilchrist read by Tom [1:16:48]Follow Iain McGilchrist:Website: https://channelmcgilchrist.com/YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCW0LCKUFTTtgitH33Mx6u-A Twitter: https://twitter.com/dr_mcgilchrist Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DrIainMcGilchrist/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/dr-iain-mcgilchrist-b931aa1a2/#

If you were born in the digital age of technology where electronic devices and social media started affecting your life directly or indirectly. You easily start feeling like you're not enough, there's something missing or like you should be doing more than you are.Anna Lembke is a professor of psychiatry at Stanford University School of Medicine and chief of the Stanford Addiction Medicine Dual Diagnosis Clinic. She writes, “humans are the ultimate seekers.” Because of the way we are wired with the flood of hormones and chemicals released physiologically, we are always looking for the next dopamine hit without ever consciously identifying and labeling it. So, if it is in your nature to pursue a reward that is ever elusive, what reward do you decide to focus on? In this episode, Anna and Tom explore why using the love of the pursuit as a drug of choice to get dopamine rewards can be very dangerous. Anna also explains the pleasure pain balance and why too much pleasure and too much positive overload is still a form of stress to watch out for.Order Anna Lembke's book, Dopamine Nation, Finding Balance in the Age of Indulgence: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/152474672X?tag=randohouseinc7986-20 SHOW NOTES:0:00 | Introduction to Anna Lembke1:00 | Pursuit is Rewarding10:12 | Dopamine Insensitivity16:17 | Pleasure Pain Balance26:24 | Dopamine Reset29:21 | Cannabis Use & Potency34:07 | Pornography Addiction39:56 | Truth Telling Reward50:38 | Spirituality in Neurochemistry59:05 | Social Media Connection1:12:16 | To Exert Will or Not1:25:10 | Danger in StrivingQUOTES:“We are hardwired to approach pleasure and avoid pain. And that's really at the heart of our dopamine reward system.” [7:50]“Any deviation from neutrality is actually a form of stress. In fact, biologists define stress as a deviation from neutrality.” [18:33]“The richest countries in the world are the countries that have the most suicide, anxiety, depression, and physical pain.” [24:22]“Because our primitive brains were not wired for an easy, hyper convenient world, we are suffering as a result of all of this access to these feel good things.” [25:10]“If social media is the main place, or the only place where you get validation, and you feel connected, that's really dangerous.” [1:06:55]“Don't do the easy thing to get rid of the pain, far better to suffer and come up with a long term solution” Tom Bilyeu [1:08:45]“The interesting part here is it isn't winning a championship, it's becoming capable of a championship performance.” Tom Bilyeu [1:26:34]Follow Anna Lembke:Website: https://www.annalembke.com/

    This Is How You LEVERAGE The Laws Of Human Nature to Your Benefit | Robert Greene

    Self-awareness is that thing many people claim to have but in no time at all you know this person is completely unaware of themselves. Our versions of reality seem to fall in line with the narrative and stories we constantly remind ourselves of, but the truth is, we've constructed a reality shaped and influenced by emotions that were never truthful from the beginning. Robert Greene, just released another book, The Daily Laws, and he joins Tom in this episode to share his profound wisdom and understanding of human nature. He beautifully peels back the layers of complexity around how we are able to perceive the world around us and the way in which we fit into our own stories. The main point Robert drives home is the power of detaching yourself from the emotions and egos to take an honest assessment of what you are truly experiencing.

That's sort of the source of our problems and our misery to be honest with in life.” [1:10] “When you're very young you're extremely vulnerable, you're extremely open to the energies of other people in ways we don't understand right now.” [6:38] “So awareness is everything, the ability to look at yourself, realistically, and understand you're saying, see things as they are, see the world as it is. It begins with yourself, seeing yourself as you are.” [11:28] “If we saw completely into ourselves, we would hate ourselves so thoroughly, we wouldn't get out of bed, we would all be killing ourselves, you do need a degree of illusion, you need a degree of self esteem and confidence” [20:14] “We're so attuned to what's cool, to what other people are doing out there, what other people are saying that we lose kind of an intuitive grasp of who we are.” [22:50] “The source of your power in life is your attitude towards the world.” [25:17] “When you take 100% ownership, and you look at your life and say, My life is an exact reflection of choices that I've made. Now, if I want it to be different, then I just need only make different choices” Tom Bilyeu [32:39] Follow Robert Greene:Website: https://www.robertgreene.co/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/robert-greene-0294962/Twitter: https://twitter.com/RobertGreeneInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/robertgreeneofficial/

Richard Craib is the founder of the crowdsourced quant hedge fund, Numerai, which is using sophisticated machine learning to create models that essentially predict how the stock market moves. During this conversation with Tom, Richard is sharing how crypto is breaking the barriers of the old financial system that was meant to protect people, while effectively keeping everyone out. This is another resource that can be really useful in seeing the bitcoin revolution, blockchain and cryptocurrency in another light, especially through the lens of finance.

Richard Craib is the founder of the crowdsourced quant hedge fund, Numerai, which is using sophisticated machine learning to create models that essentially predict how the stock market moves. During this conversation with Tom, Richard is sharing how crypto is breaking the barriers of the old financial system that was meant to protect people, while effectively keeping everyone out. This is another resource that can be really useful in seeing the bitcoin revolution, blockchain and cryptocurrency in another light, especially through the lens of finance.   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction Richard Craib 0:55 | Financial System Barrier 7:29 | Blocking Innovation 13:07 | Navigating 2 Money Systems 18:13 | Crowd Validation & Volume 24:42 | Machine Learning Models 31:44 | Hedge Funds and Stocks 39:08 | What Happened With Gamestop 44:26 | Decentralized Capitalism 51:12 | Unstoppable Technology 1:00:38 | Bank Regulation Traps 1:08:01 | Staking Benefit for Internet 1:15:46 | Being a Quant Trader 1:22:08 | Math Language in Crypto 1:31:21 | Thinking from 1st Principles 1:34:55 | Entrepreneurship Advice   QUOTES:   “You have to find a way to tie the community into the success of a product and company.

The response to such life altering events has varied drastically from person to person and country to country. Some people found opportunities where none existed before, while others sat in disbelief not sure how to move forward or what to do. Dave Hollis has gone through his own sudden changes over the last couple of years, not related to the pandemic, and they've been the kind of changes that challenge your identity and the core of who you say you are and who you think of yourself to be. On the other side of these unexpected life events, he's emerged with an experience to share about what standing in fear looked like while turning what was utterly terrifying into an exhilarating experience worth sharing. Dave shares his journey of losing everything to find everything else he was capable of creating and more once he learned how to construct a new identity, a purpose, and fulfillment through courage. He reminds us in his latest book, Built Through Courage, “the antidote to fear is a plan.” Do you have a plan in place to help you deal with the unexpected changes life is throwing your way?   “It is not until we've lost everything that we can do anything” -Tyler Durden (Fight Club)   Order Dave Hollis new book, Built Through Courage: https://www.amazon.com/Built-Through-Courage-Fears-Meant/dp/B09129JGT6   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction Dave Hollis 1:38 | Unexpected Life Changes 8:18 | Adjusting to New Reality 16:33 | Who You Want To Be 23:34 | Inner Voice Guidance 32:32 | Fulfillment and Purpose 34:56 | Leaving the Known 38:28 | Built Through Courage 45:38 | Stuck in Your Story 50:29 | Toxic Positivity 56:34 | Tested to New Depths 1:02:51 | Becoming Is A Decision   QUOTES:   “There is no control. There's only the way that we respond to the circumstances that life presents” [3:22]   “The place I had to start, to be honest, was really getting intimate with my fear. Because most of why my imagination had been lost was because there was so much fear around trying to figure out something that I'd never contemplated.” [6:50]   “I got to at least build the sail, I gotta put it up so that when the wind starts to come, I'm actually prepared to move forward.” [11:36]   “You think good things are going to come out of this, you will become something because of the post traumatic growth that can come out of the hardest thing that you've ever experienced.” [22:02]   “We're willing to stay inside of suffering that we know, rather than facing the possibility of something new, because the knowns of that existing suffering feel predictable [...] The challenge in pushing away though, is that that safe harbor is surrounded on all sides by fear.” [39:58]   “People get stuck because they let the circumstances of what's happening in real time, cast a probability future, a likely to happen next future, that is clouded by the subjectivity of what they're currently experiencing.” [49:30]   “The way that I feel about my faith is fundamentally different because of having to have my faith tested. I was forced to my knees.” [57:24]   “In the moment, when it feels like life is ending, you forget that there's so many firsts, and so many nexts and so many beautiful moments.” [1:01:17]   Follow Dave Hollis: Website: https://mrdavehollis.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mrdavehollis/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/MrDaveHollis LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/dave-hollis-b5a48671/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mrdavehollis YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnB48Dc40d9vLvkyUfUcMlA

Does eating a high calorie meal affect you worse than a lower calorie, higher carb meal? Herman Pontzer, an evolutionary biologist, did a research study on a hunter gatherer community called Hazda in Tanzania, to learn about energy expenditure. What he's discovered flips everything you thought you knew about calories and carbs upside down. He's joining Tom to expose why the data shows that carbs in a calorie controlled environment do not matter. Meaning, it is possible to theoretically go on a Twinkie diet (please don't) and still lose weight when calories are adhered to. Herman is using data to push back on how calories are burned and how they signal your brain to control your weight.   Order Herman Pontzer's book, Burn: New Research Blows the Lid Off How We Really Burn Calories, Lose Weight, and Stay Healthy : https://www.amazon.com/Burn-Research-Really-Calories-Healthy/dp/0525541527   Also check out the Hazda Fund (https://www.hadzafund.org/about) to learn more about the Hazda culture   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction to Herman Pontzer 1:40 | The Calorie Debate 6:14 | How We Burn Energy 12:09 | Obesity Starts In The Brain 14:43 | Hypothalamus Function 19:25 | Brain Response to Calories 29:06 | Food Calorie Signaling 32:36 | Optimal Lifestyle 34:53 | Processed Food Brain Hack 38:31 | Why Sugar Is A Problem 42:22 | Hi Carb Diet Weight Loss 45:24 | Fantasy Diet Study   QUOTES:   “The problem is that when we begin to say, oh, that must have been something in the food that you ate, rather than, oh, it's something in your individual response to that extra energy.” [21:33]   “It really does come down to the calories or what determines the weight change or maintenance, not the carb level.” [24:13]   “The argument is, is this more in the weeds? Is it fat cells and pancreas? Or is it brain cells and sensing?” [32:29]   “It is my job to keep eyes open and look across cultures and look across human experiences and see that diversity and understand all of it is pretty normal.

What do athletes have that entrepreneurs and anyone looking to reach max potential can learn from? It's their work ethic. Hardcore, unrelenting, straight up grind-this-sh*t-out work ethic that shows up and does the work Every. Single. Day. Recent numbers report approximately 8% of the American population are millionaires. What's stopping the masses from achieving wealth and success on their own terms? You could say politics, social issues and a lot of other things, but the reality is those reasons are not stopping everyone. Jim Rohn said, “Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do. Don't wish it were easier; wish you were better.” In this episode, these high level athletes share tips to help you develop a champion mindset. We know how important the work is to do, but consistency is key, and the process includes doing the right things everyday no matter what.   “What you create, creates you” Anthony Trucks, Former NFL Athlete   Tips to help you develop your champion mindset: 1. Do the right things every day, consistency is key. 2. Dream the big goal and believe you're capable of achieving it. 3. The way you make others feel around you is important. 4. Do the hard things with intention to be prepared. 5. Push through the pain in pursuit of your goals. 6. Be average with extraordinary dreams and desire 7. Always outwork the competition. 8. Help people in their journey to fuel your own journey. 9. Sometimes you have to tap into your dark side. 10.

Having a complete understanding of the financial system we've become accustomed to since birth is not only advantageous, but it's an absolute must.  The gap between really understanding the impact and full gravity of inflation and living by a feeling or a suspicion is too wide to ignore. Nic Carter is an entrepreneur, investor, columnist and advisor in the Bitcoin crypto space. He's joining Tom today to break down some principle ideas and thoughts to help you at least research what you should be doing with your money, your government issued and government backed money. What's happening with crypto and NFTs isn't something you can ignore or sleep through. Bitcoin has been going strong for more than a decade. You have a moral obligation to yourself and to your family to at least understand how inflation works, why increasing assets is like theft of your dollar's value and how you can protect yourself and be part of the wealth redistribution in a way that benefits you more than harms you.   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction to Nic Carter 1:31 | Does Bitcoin Matter? 4:21 | What is Money? 8:52 | Creating Devalued Money 14:43 | Redistribution & Inflation of Assets 22:24 | Reacting to Inflation 27:54 | Japan's Stagflation 36:57 | Energy, Euphoria & Bitcoin 40:47 | Fiat Money Explained 45:10 | Do Research Money 49:16 | Bitcoin Value Vs Fiat Value 54:13 | Bitcoin, Digital Gold 57:52 | Value System by Design   QUOTES:   “Devaluing the monetary medium that we store our work and labor in is always redistributive. So it's effectively a way to reapportion societal resources from some group to another group.” [9:59]   “there's a wealth effect whereby people feel richer, and then they spend more like if the value of your 401k goes a lot, goes up a lot, you're probably willing to buy that nice new car, if the value of your house goes up a lot” [16:23]   “There's nothing that guarantees that public equity investors in the US are going to earn 7% every year for the rest of all time.” [31:38]   “As an entrepreneur in the crypto space, and someone who allocates capital, my best hope is to sort of create the tools and the systems that regular folks can use to potentially escape a ruinous Fiat system.” [40:15]   “The government cultivates an environment in which the dollar has value. They have certain tools to do that, one is tax policy...” [42:09]   “The first thing is just not not accepting uncritically the narratives coming out of sort of our monetary elites in this country.” [49:06]   Follow Nic Carter: Website: https://niccarter.info/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/nic__carter

If you haven't been following along, jump in now. This episode is less NFT and crypto wallet focused and more educational in that Robert breaks down inflation like very few can. Understanding something at its foundational level allows you to really think from first principles, which empowers you to make better decisions. Cryptocurrency is built on technology and Bitcoin has been performing like no other asset in history, but why and how is this possible? You may need to watch this a few times, and may be even better with pen and paper to take notes. This is a crash course and deep dive on money, inflation, what property is, and why assets matter.   Robert shares 5 properties of money:   1. Divisibility 2. Durability 3. Recognizability 4. Portability 5. Scarcity   Resources mentioned in this episode:   WTF Happened in 1971: https://wtfhappenedin1971.com/ Masters and Slaves of Money: https://breedlove22.medium.com/masters-and-slaves-of-money-255ecc93404f Dishonest Money: https://www.amazon.com/Dishonest-Money-Financing-Road-Ruin-ebook/dp/B004P1J0PQ Sovereign Individual: https://www.amazon.com/Sovereign-Individual-Mastering-Transition-Information/dp/0684832720 Thank God for Money: https://www.amazon.com/Thank-God-Bitcoin-Corruption-Redemption/dp/1641991216   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction Robert Breedlove 0:34 | Inflation and Fiat Explained 6:17 | Defining Money & Property 10:47 | Compromised Property Value 16:05 | Wealth Redistribution of Assets 23:59 | What is Money 26:16 | The 5 Properties of Money 33:51 | Central Banking Corrupt Power 40:13 | Counterfeit Inflation 48:32 | Life, Liberty and Property 56:48 | Bitcoin Absolute Scarcity 1:07:21 | Government Disruption 1:13:50 | Declining Power of Government 1:23:20 | Implication of Bitcoin 1:30:47 | Purchasing Power of Bitcoin 1:40:43 | Sovereign Individual Insights 1:48:30 | Decentralized NFTs & Crypto 1:51:03 | Thank God for Bitcoin     QUOTES:   “Money is also a psycho technology. It's like literacy or numeracy. It's a software implementation we put into our brain, we use it to communicate, negotiate [and] plan.” [6:42]   “We typically think property is the house, the car, the stock, whatever. That's not what property is, properties and relationships. It's an exclusively acknowledged relationship between the owner and the asset”   “It contradicts the premise of self ownership, when we give power away to a single institution” [10:26]   “I like to say central banking, and the fiat currency complex is as clear as mud and twice as dirty.” [16:48]   “When we look at money, the five properties that market actors voluntarily favor, you could also think of as the five services we seek from money…” [26:16]   “When money is losing its value over time. We're all incentivized to be more short term thinking. This is a de-civilizing force.” [39:07]   “There is no difference between counterfeiting and inflating the amount of dollars in the system.” [40:13]   “Inflation is legalized counterfeiting. Counterfeiting is criminalized inflation.” [43:33]   “We have tried to rationalize and formulate different ways of creating socio economic structures that favored the few that could understand it and create that privilege for themselves at the expense of others.” [56:35]   “Bitcoin is an innovation as significant as the Gutenberg printing press actually, and I think the implications of its emergence will be similarly disruptive to institutions in the world.” [1:10:07]   “When the institution tries to clamp down on the disruptive technology, the subversive technology, it actually drives it to its highest and most useful form of some subversion” [1:12:24]   “Another definition of money. It's an insurance policy on uncertainty. The only reason people are holding money is for its option value.” [1:35:23]   “To walk across the room, implies that you value being on the other side of the room more than you value sitting where you currently are. So we are constantly and unavoidably expressing our values through action.” [1:55:22]   Follow Robert Breedlove: YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC43_LTf5Z4lbRjKCq0sIAVg Twitter: https://twitter.com/Breedlove22 LinkedIn:https://www.linkedin.com/in/breedlove22/ Podcast: https://whatismoneypodcast.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/breedlove_22/

Sleep is not only an essential function that allows us to recharge mentally and physically, it's also deemed so important that going without sleep was banned by Guinness World Records. The record for going without sleep was officially given to Randy Gardner who managed to survive 11 days without sleep in 1964 while giving himself a form of dementia. Obviously this is not the path to take for increasing productivity and optimizing your quality of life, but many of us are short changing our sleep every night and have been doing so for years. Sleep is something that should be protected and guarded at all costs if you want to execute consistently at a high level and optimize for higher output and results. Here are Tom's 10 tips to help you prioritize your sleep even if you're burning the candle at both ends, there is no excuse and no way around prioritizing your sleep hygiene.   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction to Sleep Routine 0:42 | Get Sun Exposure 1:53 | Move Your Body 2:38 | Stop Eating Crap 7:12 | Reduce Artificial Light 12:39 | Separate Your Blankets 14:45 | Keep The Bedroom Cool 16:07 | Tape Your Mouth Shut 17:55 | Fall Back Asleep 21:16 | Never Set an Alarm 22:33 | Bonus Tip   QUOTES:   “The second you wake up, get out, go outside and get that sun exposure” [1:26]   “For the last hour before bed, I'm doing fun things and doing things that give me energy that makes me feel light that are part of that passion that feel good.” [8:56]   “I only have one job now that I'm going to bed and that job is to sleep.” [9:38]   “Make sure that you don't have an alarm staring you in the face and that you get whatever amount of sleep you need.” [22:02]   “Recognizing that you can shift your state and get into that much more pleasant place is really powerful. And to even do that, on your worst days, is incredibly beneficial.” [23:40]

When you sit back allow yourself to really dream, often the dream you have is beautiful but it's also big, a little scary, and intimidating. Big dreams and big goals feel nearly impossible. It's hard to fathom how you're supposed to get from where you are in this moment to this far away goal that's hard to conceptualize. James “Iron Cowboy” Lawrence completed 50 consecutive Iron-Distance Triathlons covering 7,030 miles with 0.24% of those miles completed indoors due to inclement weather. He joins Tom and breaks down the backlash he got for doing less than 17 miles indoors, and reveals the real mental fortitude and personal challenges he faced that lead him to deciding on completing 100 consecutive Iron-Distance Triathlons this time, plus one.   James talks about what it really means to do hard things, and how the secret of achieving your goals is in the journey, the failures, and the lessons that prepare you for the actual goal.

When you think of someone being courageous, it's easy to think of police, fire fighters, and military. Maybe the person that risked their life to help a total stranger in a time of need comes to mind as being courageous. But courage manifests in many ways than not just the physical acts that we default to. Ryan Holiday joins Tom to discuss his new book, Courage Is Calling. He explains how courage is ongoing.It's about the moments and opportunities that are presented where you choose to act in courage, or you show up reckless without regard, or you choose the cowardly thing in that moment. Ryan unpacks having courage, acting in courage, and where it falls in the spectrum between being reckless and being a coward. Even the term coward seems harsh when you realize you may be guilty of acting cowardly at different points in your life. You've chosen to “save face” and look after your personal safety and benefit at some point, and it's okay, we all have. Ryan further explains through his personal experiences that doing the courageous thing is not always self-evident, and that these moments will present themselves. This is a great jumping off point to exercise your courage muscle, do the heroic things and start living to a higher standard today.   Order Ryan Holiday's new book, Courage Is Calling: https://amzn.to/3i0XRmD   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction Ryan Holiday 0:21 | Why Live by Virtues 7:57 | Intuitive Nature of Courage 13:08 | Put Yourself Out There 19:28 | Inspired Cynical Ideas 28:51 | Integrate Truth & Courage 35:18 | Responsibility to Past Lessons 41:29 | Middle of Reckless and Coward 48:02 | Is It Reckless Or Cowardice? 1:00:52 | Failing to be Courageous 1:08:11 | Not Acting Courageous 1:15:59 | Get More Courageous 1:21:34 | Courageous is Contagious 1:31:17 | Ryan's Heroes & Standards   QUOTES:   “That's kind of the idea of virtues, is to create sort of a structure that you can live in, that guides you so you're not again winging it on these critical decisions.” [7:03]   “There is no deed in this life so impossible that you cannot do it, your whole life should be lived as a heroic deed.” Leo Tolstoy read by Tom [12:21]   “History is not just a parade of shitty people and crimes and awfulness and hypocrites, that we are making progress and things are getting better and it's getting better because people were courageously committed to ideas and ideals, and risked themselves and their reputations to try to make those things more real.” [22:45]   “You don't get to stick your head in the sand and deny that facts are facts, but you have to decide what facts are you going to take and integrate into your understanding of the world, and what your imperative as an individual is.” [31:28]   “What do you do with the little moments that life offers you? Do you make the brave choice Or the cowardly choice?” [34:32]   “If the fight doesn't need to happen, it's not courageous to start it [....] deciding what battles need to be fought, what risks need to be taken, how risk can be taken off the table if it's not necessary. This is an important part of courage. It's not just, I don't feel fear.” [44:49]   “The thing you're hesitating on doing, the considerations, are usually very helpful in reminding you of what actually matters.” [51:33]   “Courage isn't this thing where you're either courageous or you're not. It's more a thing you do, day to day.” [1:14:54]   “If you think about courage as like, very rarely the easy way, and almost always the harder way, you can build that as a muscle” [1:17:21]   “The decision to quit, the decision to give up, the decision to concede, that's ultimately a power that you always have.” [1:20:19]   “Everyone tells you, it's a bad idea, until you definitively prove it was a good idea. And then the curse is that it looks like it was obvious all along.” [1:25:30]     Follow Ryan Holiday: Website: https://dailystoic.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/ryanholiday   Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ryanholiday Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ryanholiday/

The problem is that you, and nearly every other person around, defaults to being at the mercy of the people, the environments, and unfortunate situations that mark the course of life. Mel Robbins is the personification of motivation on steroids packed with a high potency of raw truth. You could say she's joining Tom to discuss her newest book, The High 5 Habit, but it's more fitting to say she's back to give you the kick in the ass you've been waiting for. Mel is not only talking about why high fiving yourself is powerful, she's reminding you that you have a responsibility to heal yourself and do the work. While you're chasing your dreams, understand that what the world sees as failure may just be a massive success in the timeline of your life, as has been the case for Mel Robbins.   Order Mel's new book, The High 5 Habit: https://www.amazon.com/High-Habit-Take-Control-Simple-ebook/dp/B096JQSWQ6   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 Introduction Mel Robbins 1:42 | A-Ha Moments In Life 7:20 | Why High 5 Yourself 19:54 | Feel Worth Celebrating 25:15 | R.A.S.

Jealousy is sort of the insecurity that you have that blocks this inspiration” [35:55]   “Most people aren't obsessed with their goals, because they don't believe they're worthy of them.” [40:36]   “If you don't, at some point, be defiant, against what the world or your caregivers or your past experience has pounded into your brain incorrectly, unfairly, you will forever be stuck with that story.” [41:16]   “You can have nothing, and you can still have your own back. You can have tremendous problems and very real obstacles that you're facing, and you can have a mindset that says, through my efforts, my attitude, I can have an impact on the situation that I'm in.” [45:09]   Follow Mel Robbins: Website: https://melrobbins.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/melrobbins Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/melrobbins/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/melrobbins/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/melrobbins

People have been obsessing and hearing about dopamine and its role in human behavior for years. You may think of it as the feel-good happy hormone, or you may associate it with addiction, love, lust and sex. As our lives convert over to a totally digital experience that is with us everywhere we are in the form of a cell phone, dopamine detox has even started gaining in popularity. Dr. Andrew Huberman from the Huberman Lab is back again to unpack some of the more surprising discoveries and uses of dopamine. He cleverly relates dopamine to being a biological currency that has a role to play in human desire for more. Dopamine is the catalyst pushing humanity forward exploring things like cryptocurrency and pushing our limitations and what is possible, but is all of that for the sake of pleasure and feeling good? Dr. Huberman breaks down the eternal balance of pain and pleasure, arousal and relaxation and gives you the insight you need to start regulating your body's dopamine release. If you thought dopamine was all about feeling good, Dr. Huberman is about to reveal why it's more about what motivates you in the pursuit of something greater.   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction Dr. Andrew Huberman 0:56 | Dopamine the Biological Currency 6:51 | Releasing Dopamine 10:38 | Hormonal Signaling 14:34 | Can We Spike Dopamine? 21:00 | Value the Pursuit & the Dips 25:40 | Balance of Pain and Pleasure 31:23 | Self Regulation of Dopamine 38:28 | Dopamine and Time Perception 44:31 | Dopamine and Overindulging 49:05 | Action Based Denial 52:42 | Using Rules & Dopamine 58:27 | Ways to Get Motivated   QUOTES:   “When I say dopamine is the universal currency of everything, what I mean is, it's driving the motivation to develop new currencies.” [3:08]   “Celebrating the win more than the pursuit, it actually sets you up for failure in the future.” [16:00]   “If you can start to register that craving, and that friction and that desire, that almost kind of low level of agitation, sometimes high level of agitation [...] that's dopamine...” [17:54]   “Your capacity to tap into dopamine as a motivator, not just seeking dopamine rewards, that is infinite.” [19:34]   “It's the craving that makes me feel alive. So it's the state of wanting that is in and of itself, the pleasurable act.” [22:37]   “It doesn't matter if it's Bitcoin or aetherium, it doesn't matter if it's putting rockets on other planets, it doesn't matter if it's building the first automobile, it's the same currency.” [25:27]   “Dopamine itself is not the reward. It's the build up to the reward, and the reward has more of a kind of opioid bliss like property,” [29:51]   “The more pain you experience, the more dopamine you can achieve. If you get back on the avenue of pursuit.” [30:58]   “I would say addiction is a progressive narrowing of the things that bring you pleasure, and I don't like to comment too much on enlightenment, [...] but a good life is a progressive expansion of the things that bring you pleasure, and even better is a good life is a progressive expansion of the things that bring you pleasure and includes pleasure through motivation and hard work. “ [32:55]   “If you think about most of the growth in life comes from these rigidly externally imposed schedules and we hate them. But they are where we learn restraint” [52:42]     Follow Andrew Huberman: Website: https://hubermanlab.com/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/andrewhubermanlab Twitter: https://twitter.com/hubermanlab Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/hubermanlab/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/hubermanlab Podcast: https://hubermanlab.com/

Both scenarios are worthwhile, as Tom is joined by the world renowned evolutionary biologist, Richard Dawkins. Trying to fully grasp how the human mind works and what role evolution plays with our emotions, thought processes and sexual selection can be overwhelming. Tom highlights the inspiring works from Richard and discusses some complex ideas from his latest book, Books Do Furnish A Life. This is a deep dive into what evolution is, and raises the question of whether or not science, technology, and the human search for meaning and exploration has surpassed our basic evolutionary need for survival. Where does that leave humanity and what options are potential solutions worth exploring?   Order Richard Dawkins new book, Books Do Furnish A Life: https://amzn.to/39fEeSU   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction Richard Dawkins 1:34 | How The Mind Works 7:28 | Nature of Thought & Emotion 14:01 | Emergent Properties Beyond Survival 21:13 | Lack Of Evolving Creativity 29:30 | The Great Leap Forward 30:46 | Evolution of Sexual Selection 41:25 | The Handicap Principle 45:17 | Human Sexual Selection 57:13 | Genetic Variance 1:04:07 | Finding Origin of Life 1:10:55 | Natural Selection & DNA 1:27:29 | Writing Sci-Fi & Morality 1:37:58 | Hard Problem of Consciousness 1:41:32 | Memes + Hyper Connectivity   QUOTES:   “What I tried to do in my writing career is to emphasize the rational, thoughtful side of the brain, and to not deny the existence of the emotional, but to try to foster the control of the emotions by reason.” [6:48]   “What the human mind achieves today, in the form of science in particular, technology, is utterly bewildering when you think about it in an evolutionary context. It is so far beyond what we're ever naturally selected to do.”   “The origin of life on this planet is not a highly implausible event, it's not a very rare event...” [1:09:49]   “The idea that every particle in the universe has a minute mote of consciousness seems to me to be complete rubbish.” [1:39:17]   “It's got to be a manifestation of great complexity of interacting units. No, one of which is conscious in itself, but when you put them together, consciousness emerges from the interactions among them.” [1:40:47]   “Cultural evolution is a real phenomenon, it really looks like evolution, it really has the same progressive qualities as evolution does.” [1:42:39]   “I introduced the idea of the meme as a virus of the mind.

Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying are two Evolutionary Biologists that give you the facts, discoveries and observations as they see it. Tom reads a direct quote from their latest book that says, “We are headed for collapse. Civilization is becoming incoherent around us.” Bret and Heather break down fundamental ideas behind what humans have learned from evolution for thousands of years, how corrupt the science community has become, and how to parent your children with the goal of mitigating risks while they are younger. These biologists are incredibly fascinating with novel ideas of what adaptation would look like for humans if we are careful and intentional.   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction to Bret & Heather 0:30 | Headed for a Collapse 3:02 | Learning From Evolution 6:43 | How Are Humans Fish? 13:18 | Solving Novel Problems 18:37 | Redefining Language & Jargon 27:03 | Defining What Science Is 34:14 | Corrupted Science Incentives 39:50 | Break Down Of Society 44:04 | Evolutionary Toolkit 48:27 | Recover from Helicopter Parents 55:34 | Prepare Children for Risks 1:04:41 | Rite of Passage 1:07:05 | The Fourth Frontier 1:15:22 | Steady State Craftsmanship 1:20:59 | Value of Liberty   QUOTES:   “Some things about what we are, are very difficult to change, some things are actually trivial, easily changed, and knowing which is which is a matter of sorting out where the information is housed.” Bret Weinstein [6:24]   “If you use your intuitive, honed instincts, in order to sort through novel problems, you will constantly up and yourself because those instincts aren't built with those problems in mind.” Bret Weinstein [13:23]   “Let's figure out how to use language that we can all agree on and understand and know, for the purposes of communication, as opposed to for the purposes of displaying group membership.” Heather Heying [23:31]   “Teaching undergraduates means exposing yourself and the thinking that you are presenting to naive minds who will throw curveballs at you, and some of those curveballs are going to be nuisances, and maybe they'll waste your time, but some of them are likely to reveal to you the frailty in your own thinking or in the thinking of the field.” Heather Heying [26:05]   “Being courageous about actually acknowledging what you don't know, often leads to the best conversations” Bret Weinstein [26:52]   “We need science where things are sufficiently difficult to observe or counterintuitive.” Bret Weinstein [29:53]   “wherever perception is the mediator of success, you have deception as an important evolutionary force” Bret Weinstein [32:19]   “back away from that which is novel, and untested, and in the direction of that, which is time tested. And it will result in a decrease in anxiety and increase in your control over your own life.” Bret Weinstein [50:49]   “Our brains are anti fragile, and our bones are anti fragile, and they become stronger with stressors.” Heather Heying [1:01:00]   “The very thing that made us so successful as a species is now setting us up for disaster.” Bret Weinstein [1:25]   “Some things about what we are, are very difficult to change, some things are actually trivial, easily changed, and knowing which is which is a matter of sorting out where the information is housed.” Bret Weinstein [6:24]   “If you use your intuitive, honed instincts, in order to sort through novel problems, you will constantly up and yourself because those instincts aren't built with those problems in mind.” Bret Weinstein [13:23]   Follow Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying: Website: https://bretweinstein.net/ Darkhorse Podcast: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAWCKUrmvK5F_ynBY_CMlIA Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/official.bretweinstein/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/bret.weinstein/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/bretweinstein   Follow Heather Heying: Website: https://naturalselections.substack.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100069090715633 Twitter: https://twitter.com/HeatherEHeying

Good news, chances are it never will. Bad news, chances are it's not going away and if you've been avoiding this conversation, it needs to end today. Cryptocurrency is the fastest growing technology we've ever witnessed in human history. 10 years ago people doubted it, laughed at it, and blew it off. Today, countries like Nigeria, Vietnam and the Philippines are starting to adopt crypto. What is often rejected and feared is typically not understood. While billionaires and master investors once turned their backs to Bitcoin and the crypto world, they are slowly coming around and see the potential of what this currency and technology really is. Anthony Pompliano joins Tom to put you on notice and help you better understand exactly why low income and middle class people literally cannot afford to continue dismissing the potential for building wealth with cryptocurrency. Blockchain is happening and there is a major shift in wealth and purchasing power taking place. You owe it to yourself and to your future generations to at least do some more research, investigate and find out how you can better leverage the potential that a new digital world represents for you. The cost of entry is low, it's decentralized, and for the first time you are not restricted by your income to take advantage.   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction Anthony Pompliano 0:50 | Disadvantage of Non-Investors 7:27 | Understanding Personal Finance 13:18 | Cryptocurrency and Fiat Money 20:44 | Bitcoin's Volatility Advantages 25:36 | Breadcrumbs for Going Digital 30:50 | Increasing Purchasing Power 35:22 | Censored Payment Systems 46:15 | Benefit of Open Payment System 56:23 | Decentralized Tech Structure 1:03:00 | Predicting vs. Observing Market 1:09:45 | Digital Versions of Analog (NFTs) 1:20:05 | Blockchain Is Happening 1:31:13 | The Monetary Revolution 1:38:55 | Bitcoin Global Reserve Currency 1:47:04 | Why Pomp Choices Bitcoin   QUOTES:   “Poor people spend the middle class, save, and then the wealthy invest.” Tom Bilyeu [0:24]   “There's really one key rule that everyone has to understand, which is, the dollars will be worth less than purchasing power terms over a long period of time.” [3:43]   “It's easy to mock and make fun of these young people. But these young people are interested in understanding how does the market works.” [8:03]   “It is impossible, literally impossible in America to get a financial security position by saving” [10:21]   “I can either suffer at the hands of this system, or I can flip around to the other side table, and I can benefit from the system. Every single rich person understands how to benefit from the system, hold assets, not a currency” [18:46]   “All money, at the end of the day, is a unit of time.” [31:28]   “Bitcoin, specifically, it has a financial component that is unavailable and other assets, it is systematically built to continue to protect your purchasing power” [33:02]   “The more that you can be a market observer, rather than a market predictor, you start to just understand, crazy stuff happens.” [1:07:03]   “The digital version of something is always bigger than the analog version” [1:10:19]   “Everything you think is cool is going to go to zero, and everything that you think is dumb is going to moon.” Tom Bilyeu [1:19:36]   Follow Anthony Pompliano: Website: https://www.anthonypompliano.com/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCevXpeL8cNyAnww-NqJ4m2w Twitter: https://twitter.com/APompliano

Though success is something many people strive for, it has also been the byproduct of escape for many. Facing yourself in the mirror, the story you tell about yourself, and the heartache and trauma you've experienced can take the back seat in pursuit of greatness. Maybe enough success will make it all hurt less. Bobby Hall, AKA Logic, hasn't had an easy start in life. Coming from an abusive family, exposed to too much at a young age has a role in how he arrived at throwing himself into his art and being one of the greatest rappers in hip hop. Bobby breaks down his journey, why he wrote his memoir and where he is now ending the career of Logic that he's spent over a decade building.   Bobby's Bio: As an author, Logic released the novel Supermarket (2019), which was accompanied by a soundtrack of the same name. The book became a New York Times Best Seller, but both works received generally mixed to negative critical reception. Logic is also a streamer, and signed exclusively with Twitch, becoming the first musician to do so.   Order Bobby Hall's memoir, This Bright Future: https://amzn.to/3kQtPmf   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction Bobby Hall “Logic” 2:12 | Escaping Family Trauma 6:21 | Defining Who Is Bobby Hall 9:43 | Piecing Together the Narrative 15:29 | It's Never Good Enough 20:56 | Build Your Own Family 25:32 | How It All Started 32:09 | Coping With Anxiety 37:14 | Adaptable Is Unstoppable 44:14 | Ignoring Negative Voices 47:53 | Success Without Bitterness 57:07 | Finding Total Confidence 1:00:55 | Advice for Creative Artists 1:08:18 | The End of Logic   QUOTES:   “The goals I had, as a young man and a musician and a creative person, were bullshit.” [16:54]   “There's always going to be something in our lives, there's always going to be something that isn't right. But we can't let it stop us from doing what we love.” [35:40]   “So many people have underlining things that they deal with personally, that nobody else would know [...] you got to live with it, adaptation. It's one of our greatest features. [39:46]   “When I look at other people, when they tell me their dreams, and their ambitions, and all this, I see this child inside of them that is pure and excited, and I root for that person.” [43:21]   “Being happy with the person I see in the mirror. has allowed me to not let that bitterness grow” [54:47]   “It took me being physically the strongest I'd ever been, the biggest I'd ever been in my life, to realize that all of that had nothing to do with strength, and that I had been strong my whole life. And I didn't need some outward physique to show me that or prove that to anybody else.” [56:32]   “Looking in the mirror now older, I've realized, everyone's full of shit. Nobody knows what they're talking about. I don't know shit. Why am I worried about this?” [58:22]   “Taking away the words of people and the thoughts that have been implanted in my head by people about myself is probably the most freeing thing I've been working on.” [59:28]   “I soaked up every piece of information that I could, so that I could be better at what I wanted to do, and if you are not prepared to wake up every day, to kind of like, fuck your life up, you know, turn down dates and hanging out with friends and all these things. Then don't do it.” [1:06:47]   “It was worth it up into that moment. And then I had to say goodbye” [1:11:08]   Follow Bobby Hall: Twitter: https://twitter.com/Logic301 Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/Logic YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoDcFZ5KZ0KwBC_omalJuiA

The mind is such a fascinating thing. As much as science and technology has advanced there is still so much more to learn. When it comes to mindset, controlling your emotions, feeling pain and responding to thoughts both positive and negative, all of these things are within your control, yet most of us spend life as if we were never granted permission to control our own minds. In this episode, four powerhouse forces join together and break down how to upgrade your mindset and gain control over your mind, your thoughts, your behaviors and ultimately your success. Dr. Joe Dispenza, Sadhguru, Jay Shetty, and Tom Bilyeu are lighting the path to show you exactly what you can do today to take over your thoughts and upgrade your mindset and change your life.   Saddhguru's Full Episode on Impact Theory: https://youtu.be/Gw1I7fqmxmA Jay Shetty's Full Episode on Impact Theory: https://youtu.be/v1BwF7XkkuM Dr Joe Dispenza's Full Episode on Impact Theory: https://youtu.be/La9oLLoI5Rc   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction Upgrade Your Mindset 0:54 | Control Your Thoughts 4:34 | Change Your Habits 8:05 | Identity & Value Matters 12:00 | Training Your Brain 17:17 | Inspiration Isn't Enough 19:34 | Control Your Emotions 27:53 | Control Your Negative Voice 35:11 | Get In Tune With Senses 39:49 | Focus On The Pursuit   QUOTES:   “The habit is when you've done something so many times, that your body now knows how to do it better than your mind.” Joe Dispenza [7:09]   “Unleashing human potential, it is not about reaching the peak. It is a trajectory. Because what our life is, is a combination of a certain amount of time and energy.” Sadhguru [13:34]   “My thoughts, my emotions, my energy and my body or my instruments of function. They are not impediments in my life.” Sadhguru [16:01]   “You have to come to realize where you have been blind. Now often those moments, where we realize we've been blind are emotionally devastating.” Tom Bilyeu  [18:23]   “I'm going to let that rock hit me in the head because at my feet now is actually a nugget of gold, and I'm going to pick up that nugget of gold and form the lesson that the person is throwing at me.” Tom Bilyeu [21:16]   “The hardest part about change is not making the same choices you did the day before, period.

But suffering is something that you do in your mind.” Sadhguru [27:56]   “Because you're more likely to believe something negative, don't worry about what's true. Worry about what empowers you.” [42:08]   “Life is actually embracing polarities.

From the time you open your eyes, your brain is kicking in and most likely living in overdrive. The unfortunate truth is most likely you're not even aware of all the ways your brain is under attack. Social media is being consumed at an unhealthy rate in both your personal and business life. Even if you have a generally healthy diet, processed foods and chemicals that damage the brain are still sneaking into your body's system. Is there any wonder why anxiety, stress, and depression, trauma and PTSD are now considered to be the norm? Dr. Daniel Amen is a psychiatrist, brain scan expert and third time guest. In this episode, he's unleashing the truth about the emotional dragons you are likely dealing with. He gets into some of the most common dragons attacking your emotional brain today, anxious, wounded and inferior to name a few. If you're low-key feeling attacked on a daily basis, breathe deep and listen in on ways you can start changing your brain and changing your life for the better.   SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Introduction Dr. Daniel Amen 1:10 | Dragons From the Past 4:18 | Balancing the Prefrontal Cortex 7:38 | Knowing Common Dragons 10:59 | Identify Accurate Thinking 14:18 | Strategies To Tame Your Dragons 16:35 | Techniques to Help with Trauma 20:35 | PTSD & Stimulating Trauma 29:57 | Rewriting 12 Steps for Bad Habits 32:00 | Tell Your Brain What You Want 39:09 | Unhealthy Weight to the Brain 45:01 | Brain Health, Anxiety & Diet Link 48:49 | Your Brain on Marijuana   QUOTES: “When you take the emotion out, something's going to replace it, and if you have skill in managing your mind, you'll often look for what's right rather than what's wrong.” [27:35]   “Negative thinking disrupts brain function, but at the same time [...] positive thinking by itself is harmful, we have to be thoughtful. [28:47]   “You have to tell your brain what you want, because it's always listening.” [32:00]   “What do you want in a balanced way? Because if you know, then you're more likely to get it.” [33:22]   “When you become more real, you become more relatable.” [41:07]   “This is not about not having fun.

Speaking other languages expands your ability to communicate so greatly it adds to the perceived value people will assign to you. But, when you are fluent in Street, Hustling, Broke Money, and Wall Street it becomes the twist no one ever expected. Wallstreet Trapper comes from a troubled past that includes being homeless at 14 and serving 10 years in prison by the age of 16. What he has learned over the years reaches far beyond knowing how to trade stocks and build wealth. His super power is speaking Wall Street in a language that correlates to the same losing game he played on the streets that ended with being shot, in jail or in prison for nearly everyone he knew. His wisdom and willingness to share and make an impact is affecting future generations and bringing Wall Street to the hood, proving that human potential is truly nearly limitless when you put knowledge to use.   SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Violent Beginnings and Prison 8:46 | Finding Out It's All A Game 14:16 | Real Gangsters Are in Wall Street 18:11 | Break Down Generational Poverty 25:15 | Good Business vs. Good Hustler 28:29 | Know How The Game Works 33:46 | Unapplied Knowledge 36:36 | Bringing Wall Street to the Streets 40:44 | Key To Wealth Is Ownership 46:21 | Power of Knowledge Applied 51:43 | If Investing Isn't Possible   QUOTES: “Wealthy people do three things. They stop trading time for money. They make the money work for them. And they give as much value to people as they can.” [11:45]   “The reason why people think wealthy people are people with money or sinister, is because that's what you kind of taught in the hood.” [17:09]   “Being at the bottom teaches you to envy people at the top.” [17:53]   “Generational poverty is not about money. It's about mindset.” Tom Bilyeu [18:32]   “People can not want you to succeed all they want, but if you out invest them, they can't stop you.” Tom Bilyeu [19:31]   “One of the things that happens often in the culture of black people is survival mode, you never get a chance to play offense. You're always on defense, one, because of mindset” [22:27]   “A good business is just like a good hustler. A good business has great product. They have great clientele. A great hustler has a great product, he has consistent clientele.” [25:35]   “Once you start understanding the fundamentals, you give yourself power, because you now understand, like you said, you see how the machine works,” [30:22]   “Everybody around me had the same problem. No one represented the solution. So if I don't change something, I'm only going to end up like everybody else.” [32:23]   “I got knowledge, I got information, but I still fell victim to the same shit that everybody around me knew. So therefore, the knowledge that I had wasn't powerful because it wasn't applied.” [34:32]   “It's hard for people to make sacrifice, because you got to now go against and do without some of the things that gives you that momentary gratification.” [37:11]   “The key to building wealth is not how much you can work. You can't work your way to wealth, you got to invest your way there, and all wealthy people, black, white, Asian, Chinese, they own a whole bunch of shit.” [42:31]   “So if I can break down things into struggle language now I'm making the game winnable for everybody. And that's the goal, to make the game winnable for everybody who's bold enough to step into the batting cage.” [50:37]   “Building wealth becomes a revolutionary act because now you start saying I'm going to go against what I was taught.” [52:25]   “The word possible is so powerful. Possible changes the game. Instead of it being impossible, we now say I am possible” [53:09]   “If learning is the catalyst to everybody who's wealthy and successful, I can never be sufficient with what I know.” [54:24]   Follow Wallstreet Trapper: Website: https://www.wallstreettrapper.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/Wallstreet504 YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCR6hXiWOlFWc46qMFMClKHA Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/wall_street_trapper/?hl=en

What captured your attention and made you dream and get excited when you were younger and had no cares or limitations on what was possible or not? Are those things still captivating you now or have you lost sight of them? When you consider what you are now passionate about and excited to accomplish, is there a relation between then and now? This conversation with Ben Greenfield dives into the notion of being pulled toward natural talent and abilities from childhood and Ben's inclination to allow those things to clue you in on a purpose worth pursuing. Tom shares the reason he's leaned into the notion of being able to develop skills even in the absence of natural talent. The ideas Ben and Tom explore take you from childhood to reimaging what heaven and the afterlife could possibly be and everything in between.   SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Introduction 0:47 | Pulled Toward Natural Abilities 12:34 | Discovering Purpose with Talent 17:18 | Creating Purpose without Talent 24:49 | Rite of Passage for Ben's Sons 50:08 | What Dissolving the Ego Means 54:52 | Don't Have to be the Hero 1:01:08 | Responding to Human Touch 1:10:35 | Your Food's Energy Matters 1:15:12 | Physical and Spiritual Connection 1:20:04 | What the Afterlife Could Be 1:27:48 | Defining a Perfect World   QUOTES: “The key part of the rite of passage is being alone, facing your fears, finding yourself in a space where you must dissolve your ego and understand that there are forces of nature that are more powerful than you.” [31:52]   “Don't try to fix people as much as just try to love people.” [1:01:03]   “The spiritual energy that you get from eating real, whole food derived from nature, as close to nature as possible, there's a certain sacredness in that [...] not just physical, but also a spiritual energy...” [1:12:07]   “As creatures on this planet, we can't disconnect ourselves from the life force of every other creature on this planet.” [1:15:14]   Follow Ben Greenfield: Website: https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/bengreenfieldfitness Twitter: https://twitter.com/bengreenfield Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/bengreenfieldfitness/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BGFitness/ Podcast: https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/podcast/

Just being able to focus and be strategically correct is not enough. I have to have the spirituality to say today is a great day to be in a battle.” [9:04]   “I was accepting death in order to be comfortable in hell.” [9:28]   “I noticed my worst enemy at this point was my own mind, playing tricks on me. It tells me I don't have enough, tells me I was tired, tells me that I'm [gonna lose]. So my mind was completely against my purpose.” [14:24]   “I cannot be just a jiu jitsu teacher, I had to be a psychologist. Because I have to approach a guy who stands insecure in a different way, than approach a guy who's just lazy and completely off.” [36:08]   “The real learning of your breathing system is to learn how to maximize your hyperventilation, to cope with the activities you plan to do.” [39:17]   “If you try to hide the emotions from yourself, and try to show everybody you're okay, you're just making a patch which is not working.

Whether you follow a keto diet, paleo, vegan, or carnivore, the goal for everyone is pretty similar. Get healthy and optimize productivity and energy. Dr. Dominic D'Agostino is back for round two and breaking down everything you need to know about why your biomarkers matter. Dr. D'Agostino reveals the truth behind whether or not carnivore or plant based diets are best for you, how to optimize your biomarkers with fasting, and what you need to know about what role exogenous ketones can play in your optimal health regimen. You'll want to pay close attention to understand why Covid can potentially become an ongoing problem for young healthy adults and how inflammation is impacting everything.   Don't miss Dr. D'Agostino's first episode on Health Theory: https://youtu.be/hu1mF8_QGJE   SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Introduction Dominic D'Agostino 2:10 | Metabolic Health and Covid 5:13 | Metabolic Biomarkers to Track 7:01 | Inflammation Biomarkers 12:01 | Why Fasting Boosts Immune System 14:14 | Benefits of Exogenous Ketones 18:48 | Ketone Biomarker For Burning Fat 23:20 | Hacking Biomarkers With Ketones 32:37 | Healthy vs. Unhealthy Immune Response 38:44 | Healthy People Post Covid Problems 41:28 | Optimize Metabolic Health Now 47:32 | Simplifying Diet, Carbs, Ketones 51:49 | 72 Hour Fasting Benefits   QUOTES: “Having optimal metabolic health in terms of low insulin, low glycemic variability, low glucose overall, and optimizing your cardio metabolic biomarkers is the way to combat this disease.” [3:15]   “In the context of many pathogens, whether it be viral, whether it be bacterial, or if you are dealing with an inflammatory issue, fasting, and a ketogenic diet, which mimics many aspects of fasting can be very beneficial.” [10:42]   “We are omnivores, right. So we are basically hardwired and evolved to eat to be extremely adaptable in what we are eating.” [42:52]   “If you're on a very limited amount of calories, and you want to get as much nutrition as possible, with the least amount of calories, a carnivore diet is the perfect approach.” [45:18]   “What may even be more important than having a diversity of fiber is actually having fermented foods. [They] contribute to the population, can reverse gut dysbiosis and increase the diversity of the gut microbiome” [47:06]   “You can thrive off a carbohydrate based diet but your glycemic variability will correlate to food cravings. So, if you want to go throughout your day and have optimal productivity and feel optimal energy, I found [...] that a low carb approach is the way to go. ” [48:27]   “There are benefits to being in a hyper ketone anemic state, so the ketones then act as an alternative energy source, anti-inflammatory molecule and a hormone which has many beneficial effects.” [49:47]   Follow Dominic D'Agostino: Website: https://ketonutrition.org/about/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqVNHZUXqn1sFvgppi5Zpmg/videos Twitter: https://twitter.com/DominicDAgosti2 Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/keto.nutrition/?hl=en Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ketonutrition.org

The trip is bumpy, a little messy, not as graceful as you may imagine or believe, but the way they are honest and committed to each other makes it successful and worthwhile every time.   Check Out Relationship Theory for solid relationship advice at every stage: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtHuUTWVRHUXVjmRrvS8WYg   SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Introduction Lisa Bilyeu 2:36 | Why Love Isn't Enough 3:24 | The Gap Between Love & Divorce 4:43 | Change Impacting Relationships 6:03 | Not Understanding Each Other 7:16 | Surface Level Arguments 10:15 | Find the Frame of Reference 16:46 | Preparing for Disruptive Changes 22:04 | Self Soothing Through Change 23:06 | Embracing Change Together 30:42 | Evolving Plans Call for Change 31:58 | When Personality Changes 39:02 | Making The Transitions Work 42:02 | Pivot from CEO To Cuddly Wife 45:23 | What You Need vs. Want 48:35 | Power In Being Needed 52:18 | Why You Have To Communicate 57:18 | Emphasis of Feelings 1:01:28 | Own Your Triggers & Insecurities   QUOTES: “The problem with emotions, they make things seem self evidently correct.” Tom Bilyeu [6:40]   “If someone who loves you, and that you love are going that head to head, you don't perceive the situation the same. Therefore, the entire argument should stop instantly, and you should simply say, where's the misperception?” Tom Bilyeu [10:26]   “If you want someone to be there when you're weak, you have to be honest about where you're weak.” Lisa Bilyeu [18:02]   “So the goal was for me to change my life to break out of the mundane.” Lisa Bilyeu [19:35]   “I had to be very aware, and really respectful to the fact that my change is going to impact you.” Lisa Bilyeu [24:16]   “We had the goal, we had the strategy, and in that strategy, I got lost, I lost myself.” Lisa Bilyeu [31:30]   “So as you're going through that transition, the thing for me to fall back on was, I'm in this forever. So now I'm only looking for ways to make it work. I'm not looking for the exit ramp.” Tom Bilyeu [39:02]   “I want you to become whoever you want to become in order to be proud, and I want you to feel that you've become as powerful as you want to become.” Tom Bilyeu [40:31]   “As your business partner, I owe it to you to not be weak, and I owe it to you to stand my ground if I believe in something and you owe it to me to stand your ground.” Lisa Bilyeu [42:23]   “I would never be able to stay with a wife who didn't know how to make me feel powerful… it feels so good… If you're with a man that doesn't know how to make you feel beautiful, you're missing a trick.” Tom Bilyeu [45:23]   “Understand the difference between need and want. Because failing to understand that you have to own yourself, you have to own your own emotions, you have to take control of your life” Tom Bilyeu [46:22]   “On occasions to really be able to turn to them and know they've got your back that when you fucking fall on the floor, they are there to reach out a hand and fucking pull you back up.” Lisa Bilyeu [47:33]   “Do I know that he loves me? And if the answer is yes, then I come back to this conversation from that perspective. If the answer's no, I have a much bigger problem.” Tom Bilyeu [55:04]   “People confuse feeling something for having thought through it, or for knowing that something is true.” Tom Bilyeu [58:30]   “Talking about triggers and our own insecurities and our own things. It is 1,000% on me to work through my own triggers my own insecurities.” Lisa Bilyeu [1:01:29]   “It's really freaking hard though, to say in that moment, ‘hey, I'm being triggered,' and I know that this trigger doesn't serve me but you're still feeling the emotion” Lisa Bilyeu [1:03:25]   Follow Lisa Bilyeu: Website: https://www.lisabilyeu.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lisabilyeu/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeir7Wbzzfg43c1eL7PSa3g

There are so many technological advances with AI, space travel, NFTs, and a rapidly changing culture with social media, it's near impossible to just turn ‘off'. Let's admit it, FOMO is real and it keeps a lot of people connected when they're not even sure why they're connected. When was the last time you unplugged and took on a challenge you weren't sure you'd complete? How long has it been since you've sat with yourself in total silence or allowed yourself to just be bored out of your mind? Author and journalist, Michael Easter, joins me today to discuss his journey and share the lessons and insights he's gained from spending a month in the Arctic surviving. Hunting his own food, carrying heavy loads, and sitting with absolute boredom are just part of his story. As you listen to his story, it is my hope you will consider ways you step out of your comfort zone. There is something very freeing about being able to shake things up and break your routines and habits to improve the quality of your life in unconventional ways. This episode is about facing discomfort and finding new ways to challenge yourself for the better.   Order Michael Easter's new book, The Comfort Crisis - https://amzn.to/3ihebjB   SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Introduction to Michael Easter 1:05 | The Comfort Crisis Explained 3:02 | Journey to the Arctic 5:03 | Recovering from Alcohol 7:40 | Outside the Comfort Zone 8:55 | Helicopter Parenting Losing Challenges 12:16 | Touching Controversial Topics 14:53 | Challenges Surviving the Arctic 20:11 | Problem Creep 28:05 | Need for Rite of Passage 35:12 | Metaphorical Lions for Passage 41:19 | Comfort Creep & Habits 44:22 | Breaking Routine to be Present 47:45 | Discomfort and Boredom 50:00 | Benefits of Boredom 57:12 | Daily Routine 1:02:11 | Rucking & Human Design 1:14:05 | Killing His 1st Caribou 1:17:16 | Life Cycle & Mortality 1:27:16 | “This Too Shall Pass” 1:30:31 | Want to Live Forever? 1:39:12 | Assigning Meaning to Life 1:42:20 | Rites of Passage Transformation 1:46:12 | Problem Creep Comparison 1:50:34 | Finding Gratitude   QUOTES: “By never putting yourself in a position where you are uncomfortable, whether that is physically or mentally or with, what you think to be true? You're not gonna, you're not gonna learn anything about yourself.” [7:41]   “As humans face fewer and fewer problems in our lives, we don't actually experience fewer problems. We just redefine what a problem is.” [22:50]   “If we never put ourselves in the position of true challenge, then we don't really learn something about ourselves” [40:26]   “The idea of trying to do new things, learn new things that totally shake up a routine. It's interesting, because now all of a sudden, I can't predict the future, and I've got to learn some new stuff, and this is forcing you into presence and focus,” [45:18]   “When you're bored, your brain actually goes inward, starts to sort of ruminate it, you sort of have these different thoughts that are more inward focus” [50:21]   “We don't realize how freaking amazing daily life is. It is unbelievable all this shit that we take for granted in our life every single day. We become unsatisfied with it, we look for the problems.” [1:50:36]   “If you look for the things that are joyful, and good and wonderful, then you're gonna see that and that frame of reference will color how you approach change.” [1:53:36]   Follow Michael Easter: Website: https://eastermichael.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Michael-Easter-225875898170585 Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/michael_easter/?hl=en

Your body handles long nights, limited sleep, and poor diets much easier. The problem is those choices have a cumulative effect. What you eat, how often you eat also impacts the health of your brain. There is a Chinese proverb that says, “the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, and the second best time is now.” It is easy to disregard neurodegenerative diseases as something for older people, but understanding how leaky brain and neurodegeneration begins to happen is better learned now, than waiting till later if you plan to age gracefully. Dr. Jay Lombard may be incognito but his depth of knowledge and expertise in degenerative neurological diseases is astonishing. He breaks down what misfolded proteins are, the relation of infection and immune system processes to neurodegenerative disease and reveals simple ways you can support your immune system on a cellular level.

Do you believe that starting a business with nothing is possible? The American Dream is typically defined as the idea that the opportunity of achieving your highest aspirations is possible for anyone willing to put in the work. Jay Samit, laid out his case and experiment for this very idea in his latest book, Future Proofing You. Glenn Stearns, producer and star of the Discovery show, Undercover Billionaire, put himself to the test with $100, no contacts, no help, and just 90 days to build a million dollar business because he deeply believes the American Dream is still alive and possible. Although the playing field is not equal for everyone in every opportunity, it is still possible. Glenn's story is shocking and relatable for many because his honesty and vulnerability shows that attitude and belief are still king in how you decide to live your life and make moves.   SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Introduction 1:22 | Glenn Stearns' Story 5:21 | What Is The American Dream? 6:55 | The Pathway To Make It 9:36 | How Glenn Created His Path 11:24 | Be Fearless Asking Questions 14:53 | Focusing On The Lessons 17:20 | Surrounded by Smarter People 20:29 | Cancer Shifts Glenn's Focus 22:45 | Starting Undercover Billionaire 31:15 | Developing Grit 32:57 | Hardship of Business Lessons 34:45 | Running Against the Crowd 38:12 | Opportunities In Adversity 42:26 | Leading With Vulnerability 45:35 | Making Quick Business Pivots 47:36 | How to be Unreasonable   QUOTES: “It's in the middle of my deepest fog. I had my clearest, you know, kind of aha moment of, I don't want to do this anymore.” [4:46]   “Happiness to me is not about money, it's about the satisfaction that you are doing something larger with your life and feeling very confident in the fact that you are leaving a mark in the world.” [5:39]   “It may be hard [...] but there is a path if you really surround yourself with the right people” [8:07]   “I found that these older, successful people, they want to give back, they want to tell their story, but a lot of people when they're young, think they don't want to talk to me. [...] and it couldn't be farther from the truth, if you just ask,” [10:47]   “What you gotta do is be good at being you. You don't have to be somebody else. And your transparency or your authenticity, it will reveal itself.” [13:09]   “As life went on, I realized what I thought was horrible became wonderful.” [15:36]   “Life is not easy. When you do get into a hole, it's not about laying there and feeling like the victim. It's about getting up and pulling yourself up out of the hole and figuring it out.” [23:38]   “The ones that are successful, [...] they fight through the pain, they stay later, they work through it, they sacrifice, and then they feel proud because it works.” [29:55]   “I don't like to lead with success. I like to lead with vulnerability” [31:59]   “There's little things that other people see as problems and it's pretty clear that there's an opportunity right here.” [34:17]   “When everyone dove out the window. I thought, look at all of this opportunity.” [35:56]   “Even more valuable than placing unreasonable demands and pushing people is telling people you believe in them” [50:49]   Follow Glen Stern: Website: https://www.glennstearns.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/GlennStearns LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/glennstearns/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GlennBStearns Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/GlennStearns/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCC-3gGP3f-8D93UimKiaBoQ

Regardless of where you live, societies are feeling the threat against certain freedoms and are fighting back. Humans innately don't want to be oppressed or censored by larger, more powerful and dominant groups. But exactly how do you define your freedom? Is your freedom tied to your “rights'' or is your freedom independent of that? Sebastian Junger, best selling author, Afghanistan war correspondent and more has authored a new book, Freedom, that will leave you shocked, perplexed and challenged in many ways. In this conversation, he and Tom take a deep dive into freedom, what it means for different societies, how smaller groups are able to give larger groups and armies hell, and are willing to risk their lives for their freedom. Sebastian also shares his 400 mile experience walking through America with a group of friends and reflects on different feelings of freedom. His more recent near death experience will shock you and give you yet another perspective of freedom worth fighting for Order Sebastian Junger's new book, Freedom: https://amzn.to/3rr8tP1 SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Introduction 1:06 | What is Freedom? 2:49 | Defend Your Freedom 6:04 | Balancing Opposing Sides 8:12 | Root of the Word Freedom 10:51 | 10,000 miles for Defense 15:40 | Society Safe in Numbers 20:19 | Value of Physical Strength 25:12 | Small Fighter Advantage 31:14 | Culture of Honor 41:07 | Agriculture Control 48:04 | Autonomy vs Comfort 53:12 | Social Primate PTSD 58:31 | Importance of Physical Contact 1:03:45 | A Weird 400 Mile Trip 1:06:39 | Seeking Out Challenges 1:08:54 | Freedom Along Gender Lines 1:17:00 | Lessons Raising Girls 1:21:31 | Near Death Experience 1:27:32 | Giving Meaning to Death 1:29:04 | Discussing His Next Book 1:32:34 | Relationship to Fear   QUOTES: “it means that you are not unfairly controlled by a greater power. That you're self defining, within the limits, of course of the laws that bind all of us.” [1:25]   “That's the eternal human sort of balancing act is to defend themselves but then not wind up being oppressed by their own leaders.” [4:43]   “It's very clear that armed aggression is very adaptive, that it helps the aggressive group survive and thrive.” [8:49]   “The idea of freedom really only refers to the people within your own community.” [9:25]   “Going into a foreign country to defend oneself, puts the military in the whole society on more precarious moral grounds.” [12:29]   “first thing you need to do in order to feel safe is to be part of a group that has a kind of common agreement to defend itself against any threat” [16:17]   “The really interesting thing about humans is that a smaller fighter, or a smaller group, is capable of defeating a larger fighter or a larger group that size and strength are not the ultimate predictor of victory in combat.” [23:21]   “The small guy in the ring does not have to win, they just have to keep not losing long enough for this for the larger entity to run out of resources.” [26:12]   “We have an instinct for autonomy, we also have an instinct for, you know, not being uncomfortable and being safe and and having our ease” [49:30]   “In an affluent society, individuals need others less to survive. And so they're able to live more and more individualistic lives that are more focused on their own experience, and less focused on the experience of others.” [54:20]   “As wealth goes up in a society, broadly, the rates of depression and suicide tend to go up and in poorer societies despite the stresses of poverty, rates of depression and suicide tend to go down.” [54:48]   “Where evolution comes from, is testing new things, and evolving physically and psychologically to adapt to them.” [1:07:42]   “Leadership has to be completely selfless, like you need leaders who will die for you. Anything less than that is not a leader. They're an opportunist.” [1:12:59]   “The meaning that we give to life and the meaning that we give to death. It doesn't say anything really about the nature of existence, it says something about how we, as humans, create a place for ourselves in the world on this crazy planet we live on.” [1:28:00]   “Some feelings that you get in touch with, prevent you from doing something that needs to be done. Like that emotional denial is absolutely crucial when you're doing something that is scary or horrifying.” [1:34:04]   Follow Sebastian Junger: Website: http://www.sebastianjunger.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/sebastianjunger Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/sebastianjunger Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/sebastianjungerofficial/

If this sounds familiar or feels familiar to you, then Ellen Marie Bennett's inspirational story may be the kick you need to find your inner spark and dare to take action. She went from zero experience, being a line cook at a Michelin star restaurant, to jumping at an opportunity to make a difference that led to the multi-million dollar brand, Hedley & Bennett aprons.

I didn't have time to think I had to act, and that's a beautiful thing when you're doing it versus thinking about it.” [9:37]   “When you hit a no, a no is not a no, a no is like go left or go right, but still keep going forward in some capacity”  [14:07]   “Every day, you have to wake up and know that nothing is just there. You have to create it and make it and be willing to shift when things happen, and your playbook goes flying out the window” [30:17]   “The shitstorms are so real. They're so aggressive, and so frequent, in growing something out of nothing, that if you don't truly believe in it, you don't have enough energy to fight through that storm.” [31:06]   “I'm not trying to be like that person, I'm going to walk in and be 100% myself. And they're going to appreciate that, because I'm not trying to act like somebody that I'm not. So there's an authenticity to it.” [34:24]   “If you have no ego, then you're willing to learn, and you're not claiming you know everything.

Falling victim and feeling helpless is not about being weak or strong, but it is about self-awareness and making a mental shift to see what is possible. Stepping back and asking yourself, what is in your control and deciding how you want to respond is critical. Viktor Frankl says in his book, Man's Search for Meaning, “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” Danny Trejo, an actor and  Hollywood Icon, joins me today to discuss a few of the stories from his new memoir, Trejo. Hearing these stories should remind you that it never matters where you are or how you start in life, it only matters how you decide to respond. Yes it's hard, yes all excuses and reasons you have to not try and give up are valid, but ultimately the choice is yours to make. Danny's story is beyond inspiring when you see someone come from a mindset and situation that consumes and devours over 90% of the people engulfed in that life. Which really means, anything is possible and your potential is nearly limitless.   Order Danny Trejo's new book, Trejo: https://bit.ly/trejolifebook   SHOW NOTES: Boxing Champ | Danny shares his time in San Quentin Prison and being a boxing champ [1:12] No Love | Danny explains growing up with no love in the home born into the Trejo gang [2:28] Danny's Mentor | Learning life skills from a mentor that was criminal in same situation [3:09] Prison Life | Danny on surviving prison and being tough because of his uncle [5:56] Rehabilitated | Danny's gratitude for a troubled past and why he's as grateful as he is now [9:14] Confessions | Danny on why his book is so raw and not sugar coated, it's the real Trejo [10:19] Redemption | Danny on taking inventory and questioning his behaviors and his mottos [12:38] Taking Out Trash | Why Danny began taking out trash for old neighbors, new reputation [13:56] Service to Others | Danny on why helping others is so important to the way he lives [17:15] Arguments | Danny on the bottomline of arguing, not engaging and the toxicity of it [22:13] Legacy | Danny reveals the love is his family and the legacy that holds value for him [25:51]   QUOTES: “I got a couple of scars from what I wasn't quick enough to duck. But you know what, it really showed me that I didn't want to get hit.” [2:04]   “I've realized about prison, it's easy to be a big fish in a little pond” [6:00]   “There's only two kinds of people in prison, there's predator, and there's prey, and you have to figure I'm gonna be a predator, or you'll be prey.” [6:31]   “Remember that you're only sick as your secrets” [13:36]     Follow Danny Trejo: Website: https://dannytrejo.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/officialDannyT Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/officialdannytrejo Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/officialdannytrejo/?hl=en

In those moments, your willingness to survive, fight back, and come out on the other side unscathed is critical. But, when the odds are stacked against you in the form of corruption that leads to being wrongly convicted and railroaded into a life sentence in prison, it takes an immense amount of resilience and fortitude to strategically plan a way through a broken unjust system. Isaac Wright, Jr. has experienced this first hand after 7 years imprisoned and 9 additional years under investigation after passing the New Jersey State Bar exam.

And so everything I did was not for the day, everything that I did was for years down the line.” [10:16]   “The more I know about them, and the less they know about me, the better off I am” [13:20]   “One of the things about injustice, if you fight injustice with justice, you wreak havoc upon injustice, it's like water and oil, it's never going to mix” [16:55]   “As a six-year-old kid, I understood the importance of fighting back no matter how much danger you're in.” [21:59]   “I needed to separate myself from what I was going through in order to stay focused and it took me some time, but I literally became a different person.

From the way you decide on political issues to the way you tune out dissenting views, and decide against conversations with certain people every choice is backed by some belief in what you consider to be right. Michael Shermer, who I dubbed, the King Skeptic, joins me and discusses why free speech matters most when people don't want to hear it, and the power behind social signaling that helps shed light on some of the breakdowns being seen on a global scale. Michael's ability to think through strong opposing arguments searching for truth and charitable interpretation and tolerance for others is foundational.   Order Michael Shermer's book, Giving The Devil His Due: https://amzn.to/2TWVvfq   QUOTES: “much of decision making about truth is made under uncertainty.” [14:31]   “if you want to speak out, because you don't believe this ideology, and you see your neighbor, you know, hauled off and you never see him again, it's like, ‘I'm keeping my mouth shut.'” [33:02]   “if the only answer could be I'm 100% behind it. Or else, I'm not gonna say anything. Well, that's not good for society.”   “so social media is basically taking this natural human propensity to talk about other people. And marrying it to the negativity bias where we notice negative things more than positive things.” [50:26]   “losses hurt twice as much as gains feel good.” [50:46]   “try to separate what I want to be true from what is actually true.” [1:04:01]   “ it's good to remember on commercial television, there's commercials. And so the content is basically whatever it takes to get people to get from one commercial to the next with that clicking away.” [1:07:25]   “if you're going to write a law, you should write it in a way that you don't know which group you're going to be in,” [1:20:03]   “put yourself in the position of you're the lone voice. And do you or do you not want to be heard? Of course, people want to be heard. So free speech is for those with whom we disagree.” [1:34:29]   Follow Michael Shermer: Website: https://michaelshermer.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/michaelshermer Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Michael.Brant.Shermer Podcast: https://www.skeptic.com/michael-shermer-show/

There's no stop button.” [11:32]   “It's a constant craving, constant insecurity. The fact that we can, doesn't mean we necessarily should.” [16:13]   “when we women succumb to cultural standards based on what culture imposes on us, and we defy our own natural bodies, and we go and mutate our own natural bodies to become that cultural standard, now, we are falling into the patriarchy, and actually genuflecting, actually serving the patriarchy by falling prey to it.” [20:06]   “We are constantly seeking to make everything fit this paradigm of beautiful. And actually that makes us more insecure.” [22:30]   “At the end of the day, self acceptance is your greatest sword. That is what is going to make you the most desirable to yourself and to others. Do not fall for standards of beauty.” [24:00]   “The fact that we have to fight it says that there's something to fight, and there's a system in place that we constantly have to buffer ourselves against “ [34:47]   “It is our inner that is represented on the outside on a global scale” [40:26]   “The scourge of humanity and mental illness is our deep void, our insecurity which is causing us to want to go to Mars and colonize it and go to every corner of the earth and dominate, similarly with our partners. Dominate their every part, every thought, every desire, it comes because we are not whole from within.” [53:40]   Follow Dr. Shefali: Website: https://www.drshefali.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/drshefali Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DrShefaliTsabary Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/doctorshefali/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKzsU94h-PkLBiF5xHo-SjQ

The chaos that can get unleashed on your body from your diet is so important to understand. Having low energy and brain fog is not only frustrating but it feels debilitating as well. I've had my own recent experience with low energy that had me questioning if I had lost my drive. Starting with my diet and realizing pecans were causing my energy to feel so low was shocking for me. Dr. Steven Gundry's latest book, The Energy Paradox, reveals what's taking place on a cellular level that was affecting the body's energy. He joins me to unpack how significant gut health is to your immune system and brain. We get into the chaos leaky gut causes and how you can make better choices to restore your energy. Even if you have a healthy diet, Dr. Gundry, a cardiothoracic surgeon, will surprise you.   Order Dr. Gundry's new book, The Energy Paradox: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0063005735?tag=imprintweb-20   QUOTES: “believe it or not in the American diet 24 hours a day, we're causing leaky gut we're assaulting our immune system, [...] just from fat, we are just a giant ball of inflammation.” [18:54]   “So if we look at energy production, as literally cars moving down through a freeway, it's no wonder that even though we're eating huge amounts of calories, we have no energy because we literally log jam the mitochondria.” [38:29]   “You've got to eat for your gut microbiome first, and you have to choose foods that they want to eat. And if you do that, they will take care of you.” [40:09]   “We die, we get diseases, by breaks in the wall of our gut that start this process” [41:05]   “If you begin to gradually restrict the time you eat down to about six to eight hours a day, you will develop much better functioning mitochondria, you'll actually have a better gut wall because you're not working on digestion. 24 hours a day. And you're gonna protect your brain.” [41:57]   Guest Bio: Dr. Steven Gundry is an American doctor and author. He is a former cardiac surgeon and currently runs his own clinic, investigating the impact of diet on health. Gundry conducted cardiac surgery research in the 1990s and was a pioneer in infant heart transplant surgery, and is a New York Times best-selling author of The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in "Healthy" Foods That Cause Disease and Weight Gain. He is best known for his disputed claims that lectins, a type of plant protein found in numerous foods, cause inflammation resulting in many modern diseases.   Follow Steven Gundry: Website:https://gundrymd.com/ Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4ODXZL2r3XepieV0uoRjNA Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GundryMD/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/gundrymd/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/DrGundry Podcast: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtxo0nTZjzlKJq5-vJq6s6g

But hang in there, you know, build something.” [14:55]   “I'm not trying to influence everyone, only the right ones, who are the right ones, those who come into your life, they can help you and you can help them.” [26:00]   “A revelation is something that was always there, but it's been revealed or unveiled to you.[...] and here's the beauty of revelation, what do they do? They lead to revolutions. One revelation will lead to a revolution.” [31:22]   “don't become such an expert that you can't see things anymore [...] don't bring me ideas everyone can see, tap into the unseen, and together, let's pull it out into the scene and make it a reality.” [34:08]   “I've always been amazed at the leadership of a woman because of my grandma, my mom, and my wife, I consider it to be the best.
