The Daily Boost | Coaching You Need. Success You Deserve.

Everything you do is guided by what you think is logical in your mind. Just like everything I do is directed by my Scott LOGIC. Is it common sense? Is it experience-based? Is it how you choose to live? Yes. But mostly, it is the filter in your mind at work. Here are a few of my filters: Life is long enough. But not for everybody. Life goes quickly. But not if you're bored. Life passes slowly when you are fishing. Some people are too serious. Others are not serious enough. Both disagree with the other. You must stand in another person's shoes to understand how they see you. The reward for hard work is a chance to work more. The reward for laziness is a chance to be lazy more. Turning off your phone means it won't ring. Most things in life should be in moderation. Excess is good now and then.   It takes a fraction of the time to read a good book as it does to write one. That makes reading a book a good investment of your time. People who read more good books earn more money. People who don't read don't understand why others earn more. Saying "I don't care" means you do - at least about something. Everything you experience is filtered through what you hold as the truth. Choose what you hold carefully.

Gareth Soloway: Gold Will Outperform Bitcoin and Stocks this Year

Tom welcomes back Gareth Soloway, President, CEO & Chief Market Strategist for InTheMoneyStocks. The markets appear to be experiencing deleveraging as large players exit while the smaller investors buy the dip. Bitcoin corrected early and we usually see a sell-off with crypto when equities correct. We're near all-time highs for leveraged borrowing by investors. Excess leverage creates bigger sell-offs and the margin calls can wipe out investors. He discusses the trends for the S&P 500 and how we have moved towards the bottom of the channel several times. The trend appears to be flattening which is indicative of weakness. Bitcoin is fighting around the 40k level and we have two converging trend lines. We could bounce but ultimately we're looking at continued deleveraging in the broader markets. Watch the Fed should they blink we might be off to the races again. Markets have been deleveraging and some stocks are starting to look attractive. Many technology names have been hit hard but the big names continue to support the indexes. Weakness is revealing itself in the underbelly of the markets. Gareth believes 2022 will be a taper until around March followed by a rate hike. The market will probably throw a tantrum because it's accustomed to all the easy money. A drop of twenty percent in equity markets seems likely and will force the Fed to react cautiously. Eventually, the Fed will lose complete control and the flood of money will get out of control. Gareth is attracted to some stocks outside of the United States that are more reasonably priced. He expects money to start flowing out and some of it could easily head to China or Brazil. Gold tends to lag inflation which also happened in the 70s. This is likely to happen once again. The more the Fed prints the larger the move in gold. Lastly, he discusses the chart for silver and provides some targets for the metals. He's looking for a good entry point around $19 for silver this year before the big move to $50.

After college, Gareth quickly excelled as a financial adviser, but his heart was always in swing and day trading. He had this long-standing belief that he could help investors make more money by advising them on shorter-term investments (holding a stock for days to weeks) than the buy and hold crowd who lost 50% of their money during every market collapse. "Why not profit during the bear markets just like the bull markets," he said. So while helping others gain financial independence during the day, he spent his nights studying charts and price action, developing a unique market trading system that put his profits on a rocket ship. Some nights he would barely sleep when he found a new technique that was proven, once back-tested. After building his wealth through trading in 2004, he left the financial industry to trade his own money and study charts and technical signals. This was when he met Nicholas Santiago. The two top traders spent days trading stocks/futures together and nights putting their collective brainpower into the pure genius that would become the PPT Methodology. InTheMoneyStocks was launched in 2007 once the PPT Methodology was perfected....

Episode 22:1 Don't Detox… Do THIS Instead Planning on starting a a Detox, Cleanse or Weight Loss program? Listen to this week's episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast first! ————- Most health problems can be linked to two words: DEFICIENCY and EXCESS. That is, health problems occur whenever the body has a DEFICIENCY of the nutrients it needs… and/or an EXCESS of the toxins it doesn't need. Let's look at each: 1) The role that nutritional DEFICIENCIES plays in the development of health problems receives a lot of attention. Just pick up any health magazine and you will see what I mean as evident by the abundance of ads for supplements. 2) The problems caused by an EXCESS amount of toxins in the body does not receive the same amount of attention… except at the beginning of the year. It's true.  For some reason, the idea of eliminating toxins from the body receives a lot of attention once the calendar turns to January. And, that's a good thing. You see, the body NEEDS to eliminate excess toxins from the body. Failure to do so can play a large role in the development of disease. The question therefore is not “should a person do a detox or cleansing program?”  The question is… Is there anything a person should do BEFORE undergoing a detox or cleansing program? The answer is “Yes” and on this episode we lay out exactly what you should do BEFORE doing a detox. Specifically, we discuss the importance of doing a PRE-TOX. What's a PRE-TOX? A PRE-TOX is a combination of three health strategies you should engage in BEFORE putting your body through an actual Detox program. These three strategies WILL not only improve your health they will put you in a position to get the most out of an actual Detox program. So, if you're one of the millions of Americans looking to begin a Detox, Cleanse or Weight Loss program… Wait! Give this episode a listen first. It will help make your program better! ———————- Want to learn more? Continue the conversation regarding this episode, and all future episodes, by signing up for our daily emails.

Thanks for tuning in to the Armor Men's Health Hour Podcast today, where we bring you the latest and greatest in urology care and the best urology humor out there.In this segment, Dr. Mistry and Donna Lee answer a listener question about his buried penis. Dr. Mistry explains that in addition to the many cosmetic reasons men seek out penile enhancement surgeries, there are also serious functional impairments that can be helped through such interventions. Although nothing can make your penis any longer than it actually is, much can be done to "unbury" the length you already have. Weight loss on its own can produce as much as an inch in penile length for every 30 pounds lost! Excess weight can "bury" the penis under the fat pad that sits above it. This pad--the mons pubis--can be surgically reduced in one of our most popular enhancement surgeries and can also help those struggling to urinate or have intercourse due to a buried penis. Many patients with buried penis, as well as those with spinal cord injuries, benefit greatly from an inflatable penile prosthesis. This device is completely concealed and can be inflated to create a robust erection. Importantly, while Dr. Mistry says that there is generally no loss of sensation due to the addition of a penile prosthesis and other penile enhancement surgeries, the feeling of sensation can shift for some patients, especially those requiring skin grafts. It is important to consult with a urologist you trust prior to any surgical interventions. At NAU Urology Specialists, we have urologic surgeons who specialize in this very type of intervention.

Just in time for Christmas Eve, here is my gift to you all.  It's a holiday mixtape featuring artists who have been featured on Low Profile over the years!  This is definitely not a traditional Christmas mix, you're going to hear a lot of new songs with just a few tweaks to some old familiar tunes from the sort of esoteric artists you've come to expect from this show.  There's even a couple exclusives!This is an updated version of the physical cassette tape that I sent out to all the patreon supporters in December of 2020.  If you'd like to join their ranks and help support the show, please visit patreon.com/lowprofile and give whatever you can to keep this show on track.    The track listing for this episode is below.  And now, the play button!01.  Chris Mastheim “Christmastime is Here”   Nick Krgovich has released a bunch of holiday music under the pseudonym Chris Mastheim.  This is the lyrics to the Vince Guaraldi classic, set to a remix of the Twin Peaks theme song.  A homespun mashup, ready for your local grocery store's holiday playlist.   From the album Chris Mastheim Is Here. 02. Margo Guryan “I Don't Intend to Spend Christmas Without You”   This song isn't really about Christmas, rather about the 25th of December.   From the album 25 Demos. 03. Karl Blau “Dance of the Seaweed Kites”   From his dub cover album of Tchaikovsky, The Coconutcracker, this is a new interpretation of a holiday favorite for generations. 04. Cornershop ft TRWBADOR  “Every Year So Different” This somewhat melancholy tune at least tries to brighten things up in its refrain.  For me, it's all about Cornershop frontman Tjinder Singh's ever-present, not-so-secret weapon: the gift of groove.05. Larry Norman “Christmastime”  Christian rock's original badass' scathing commentary on commercialism, resounding like a long-haired Linus Van Pelt and rocking out like Marc Bolan.   From the album So Long Ago in the Garden. 06. Jib Kidder “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”   As Sean Schuster-Craig puts it, he released his 2003 Xmas album “into any left out pair of shoes left out” at the radio station where he worked at the time.07. Gary Wilson “Sled Ride Tonight” A melancholy love song from his album It's Christmas with Gary Wilson.08. Amps For Christ “Cherry Tree Carol” This is an old folk song about Joseph being a total dick to the Virgin Mary, and then getting a sick burn. From the Kill Rock Stars LP The Oak in the Ashes.09.  Cody Trout Band “Can't Wait for Christmas”   The band Heatwarmer, incognito.  The lyrics say it all.10. Steve Hindalong and Chris Colbert (AKA Skinny and Crisco Bear) “Tis the Season of Excess”   According to Steve, “the skinny Santa's sort of the anti-Santa.  Instead of ‘what you you want, little boy or little girl'… he admonishes everybody for their excessiveness.”  Steve Hindalong has won multiple Dove Awards for his work in Christmas music, and this is not one of those songs. From the 1996 compilation Christmas in Heaven. 11. Swamp Dogg “Santa's Just a Happy Fat Fart”   Father Christmas really seems to have it made, not that I'm jealous or anything, but… From the album An Awful Christmas and a Lousy New Year,12. Klaus Nomi “Silent Night” From the so-called “unfinished opera” Za Bakdaz, here's a particularly lively dance version of a traditional hymn from the late space diva Klaus Nomi13. Gretchen Christopher “Christmas is You” After Gretchen Christopher, chanteuse of the Fleetwoods, recorded her interview for Low Profile outdoors on the deck, Andrew Ebright returned to her home and recorded this performance of one of her most recent songs exclusively for the show.  14. Sean O'Hagan “Kabon's Christmas” In much of Sean's music, particularly the High Llamas, it's not unusual to hear the sound of sleigh bells no matter the topic.  This tune is the only one I can think of that mentions them by name.  15. Julian Koster “Hark The Herald Angels Sing” The Music Tapes frontman accompanies himself on nothing but sleigh bells and musical saw.  In other words, metal AF.  From his album The Singing Saw at Christmastime.16. Cory Ledet “C'est temps noel” Zydeco dynamo Corey Ledet gets bilingual on us in this holiday original, burning up the keys on his accordion! 17. Ashley Eriksson “It's Cold Outside” “Thinking about sound and vision.  Honey, it's cold outside.” Recorded on a Yamaha PSR-37 keyboard.  (Exclusive track)18. Miles Davis (vox by Bob Dorough) “Blue Xmas (To Whom it May Concern)” More critique on the commercialism that creeps in around the end of the year from our hero Bob.   From the Miles Davis album Sorcerer

Today's episode is part of an end of year special series. I am resharing some of my most actionable episodes to help you reduce pain on your period and pain flares in general, and to balance your hormones for better periods, less PMS and healthier cycles. I am sharing these episodes because this time of year is often when some of our endo management strategies can go out of the window (and understandably so!). We might have more sugar, less sleep, more alcohol and more blood sugar dysregulation, and as a result, these can all raise inflammation and give our bodies a hard time when it comes to clearing old and excess hormones. So come January or maybe sooner, we tend to have more PMS, worse periods and more pain. So these episodes are designed to provide you with some tips you can quickly implement if you're worried about your upcoming period, or you're feeling rough and need some tips to improve your symptoms. Now of course, it's natural that we want to indulge a bit over Christmas, and so these episodes are not about telling you to be a saint. Instead, they're about practices you can throw in that can just help lessen some of the impact. I am releasing a couple so you can choose strategies you think will help you most and so you have options, but you certainly don't have to try them all! And whilst I'm here, if you find that you want to learn more about how to eat for endo and for hormone balance, or you get to the end of the festive period and you really just want to improve your systems, I now have my Nutrition for Endo Masterclasses, which are available to buy all year round, unlike my courses. Lucky for you, they're still discounted because I haven't had time to change the prices, so you can still get each masterclass for £29.99 or you can buy the bundle for £50. You could also ask for them as a Christmas present! Finally, thank you for listening to this podcast this year, and for sticking with me even with my sporadic release dates as I navigate all of these new courses and offerings with recording my free content. I am wishing you a wonderful festive break (if you celebrate) and a very happy New Year. So, without further ado, let's get to today's episode. I really hope it helps you manage some of your symptoms over this festive period. Seven Foods to Alleviate Oestrogen Dominance with Endometriosis If you've listened to my podcast recently, you've likely heard a lot about oestrogen dominance or excess oestrogen and the problems these two imbalances can bring. Oestrogen in itself isn't a ‘bad' hormone - it's a wonderful hormone that plays a crucial role in our menstrual cycle and our overall health. But too much or too high in relation to progesterone is where the problems arise, and these problems can make our experience of endo worse. So what is oestrogen dominance? Oestrogen dominance occurs when the ratio of oestrogen to progesterone is too high, this can happen when progesterone is low, oestrogen is high or both! Excess oestrogen is when there is too much oestrogen circulating the body, and this would be likely cause oestrogen dominance, providing of course that progesterone isn't also too high (which in my experience with clients at least, is generally less common). Why does oestrogen dominance occur? We deep dive into this topic in other interviews and episodes (so check the links below), but to give you an overview, here are some of the common causes: Stress Imbalanced blood sugar Gut health issues Deficiencies, such as zinc Heavy alcohol consumption Overburdened liver Xenoestrogens Whilst taking a holistic approach looking at all of these areas is advisable, eating certain foods can help your body to remove any old or excess oestrogen and adding these foods in can be a great way to get started with healing any imbalances. Here are seven of my favourite foods for alleviating oestrogen dominance with endometriosis: Dandelion root tea or coffee to help support the liver with clearing out old and excess oestrogen. Be careful that you're not buying a caffeinated dandelion and coffee blend - we're looking for dandelion alone. You can drink it as a herbal tea or buy it roasted, then grind and have as coffee! It makes a lovely black coffee or latte. Broccoli sprouts provide a big, concentrated dose of SGS (sulforaphane glucosinolate) , a plant compound that also helps the liver to detoxify oestrogen and break it down in a healthy way Cruciferous vegetables such as kale, broccoli, cabbage and Brussel sprouts aid oestrogen detoxification. The active compound in cruciferous veggies is a nutrient called I3C (indole-3-cabinol), which further breaks down into SGS (sulforaphane glucosinolate) and DIM (diindolymethane) and both play a big role in supporting the liver with oestrogen detoxification. In fact, these nutrients are so powerful that you may recognise them - they're often found in oestrogen clearance supplements! Probiotic foods such as kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi and yoghurt help create a healthy gut microbiome and ensure that the bacteria which helps to eliminate oestrogen, the estrobolome, is well supported and that beta-glucuronidase, the enzyme that reactivates oestrogen (causing it to be reabsorbed into the blood stream), is prevented from getting too high. A caveat here is that if you have SIBO you may find probiotic foods aggravating. I would start slowly with one tablespoon and increase to tolerance over time. B6 foods such turkey, fish, seeds, nuts like pistachios, lentils, eggs, and a moderate amount of organic pasture-raised red meat helps to detoxify old and excess oestrogen and raise progesterone levels. Lignans from nuts and seeds, particularly pumpkin, sunflower, sesame and potentially flax (if you respond well to it) help bind and remove oestrogen. Flax can have weak oestrogenic effects, and is often recommended to help lower oestrogen dominance symptoms . However, I recommend being mindful here as I am not the only practitioner to have witnessed endo symptoms and oestrogen dominance symptoms worsening from flax, so I would just see how you personally respond. Having said that, lots of doctors, nutritionists and health coaches see an improvement, but just have an awareness when you try and if you try flax.

There is an excess which repeats most easily when not observed (it does not want to be observed?). This excess is its own knowledge as the center of enjoyment and truth of identity. Of relevance to our on-going discussion, the excess seems to appear most deeply at the site of lack. Being in touch with this experiential knowing seems primal, and brings one to sites or drives of the body, whether oral, genital, anal, nasal, visionary or vocal. Does it make sense to say this excess is the place of "perfect" forms? What is our relation to perfect forms in time? What role do these forms play in our maturation as subjects? How can we be in touch, or in-formed by these forms, while also maintaining separation?

The US economy is in a unique moment of uncertainty but headed into 2022, shifts in inflation, the labor market and Fed policy tell a constructive story.----- Transcript -----Ellen Zentner Welcome to Thoughts on the Market. I'm Ellen Zentner, Chief U.S. Economist for Morgan Stanley Research.Robert Rosener And I'm Robert Rosener, Senior U.S. Economist.Ellen Zentner And on this episode of the podcast, we'll be talking about the 2022 outlook for the U.S. economy. It's Thursday, December 9th at noon in New York.Robert Rosener So, Ellen, we're headed into 2022. We're in a pretty unique moment for the U.S. economy. We see rising inflation, supply chain issues and uncertainty about Fed policy. Of course, we also had disappointing job growth in the month of November, but unemployment that is now not far from pre-COVID lows. So we've got a lot of different indicators sending very different messages right now. How should listeners be thinking about the U.S. economy right now and what that means for the outlook into 2022?Ellen Zentner Yeah. So we're pretty constructive on the U.S. economy, and it may be surprising with all the uncertainties that you noted. You know, consumers are in very good shape. We've been talking about excess savings for a long time on these podcasts. Excess savings is still there as a cushion. Look, inflation is rising and continues to rise, but it's rising because demand is still strong. At the same time, we don't have enough goods of what people want to buy. So I don't think we're out of the woods yet for rising inflation. I think we're going to get some more prints here that are even higher. But we already are getting indications from our equity analysts that their companies are saying that their supply chains are easing. So I think, within just a matter of months, we should start to see inflation come down. And while households are telling us in our surveys that inflation worries them even more so than COVID, they're still spending. And we expect that as we move into next year, we're going to recoup some of that deferred demand from goods that are going to be available that weren't there before.Ellen Zentner But the other thing that's really important for consumer spending is the jobs numbers, and you mentioned that, Robert, explained to people-- because this was the number one question we got after that jobs report: how is it that you get a headline number? That's so disappointing, but unemployment rate is that low? I mean, is it good? Is it bad?Robert Rosener Yeah, it's a really mixed picture and a lot of different indicators pointing in a lot of different directions. So of course, we got our latest read on the labor market that showed a slower than anticipated rise in jobs. In the month of November, we created 210,000 jobs. That was less than half of what was expected, but overall, the report still had a solid tone. And one of the reasons why there are still solid indications coming from the labor market is that we're seeing continued healing from some of the biggest effects of the pandemic and that came through, most notably in November in labor force participation. One of the biggest shortfalls in the labor market has been the number of individuals who are actually actively participating in the labor force. We saw the labor force participation rate, in total, rise 20 basis points in November to 61.8%. That's still well below the 63.4% peak we saw pre-COVID, but it's notably out of the very sticky range it's been in since the summer. So we're seeing continued healing there. We're expecting that healing is going to continue, and that's going to be a very important part of this labor market recovery.Ellen Zentner So what are you telling clients then that are worried about wage pressures and where those might go? Because participation, rising participation, does matter there. So what's our message?Robert Rosener Well, much like the inflation backdrop, we're moving through a period of more elevated wage growth. There's been a significant amount of disruption in the labor market and alongside it, wage pressures have risen. But labor supply opening back up is a very important way that we're going to see supply and demand come back into balance in the labor market. We just got data on job openings, which showed that aggregate job openings in the economy are in excess of 11 million. There's one and a half open jobs for every unemployed individual in the labor market. If we boost the number of people who are actively participating in the labor market, it's going to bring those supply and demand metrics in better balance, and it should help to ease wage pressures alongside that.Ellen Zentner OK, that's interesting because, you know, one conversation that we have with our equity investors quite a bit is, you know, how should companies be looking at higher wage pressures? And of course, if you talk to economists and academics, right, we love to see higher nominal wages because that means stronger backdrop for aggregate demand. But the other reason why I really like higher nominal wages, they precede capital deepening. So if companies want to offset a higher wage bill, then you've got to find efficiencies and to find efficiencies, you've got to invest. So we're seeing companies invest in IT and equipment. We are calling it 'the global COVID capex cycle.' And that's really a bright spot in the economy for next year's outlook as well. So we would expect that to continue.Robert Rosener So, Ellen, we talked about a lot there. We've got elevated inflation now, some of which may be passing as supply chain disruptions ease. We have labor markets that, on the one hand, look tight, on the other hand, look like they have scope for further recovery. What does this mean for Fed policymakers and how do they put together the puzzle of what's going on in the economy when they're thinking about normalizing monetary policy?Ellen Zentner Yeah, it's not an easy job, is it? But Chair Powell is going to continue that job, as we've learned, and it's not going to be an easy backdrop for him. The Fed is concerned about what looks like more persistent inflationary pressures than they had previously thought. So no doubt, you know, you and I can sit down and pick apart the data and easily point to areas of inflation that are clearly temporary. But we've just not seen evidence of it as early as expected. And markets are starting to pressure the Fed on really giving more weight to price stability. And so we have seen a shift from the Fed. Last week, we heard Chair Powell say that price stability is important and only price stability would then beget maximum employment. And so really putting a lot more pressure on the price stability side of things. So we think at this upcoming FOMC meeting next week that we're going to see quite a hawkish shift from the Fed, both in their message around how quickly they are reducing the pace of their purchases. We think that they'll end that early. And then we'll see their so-called dot plot show an indication that they're going to start rate hikes earlier than expected, probably two quarters earlier than expected. And so I think that's a really important shift. And what it means is that going forward, our forecast that inflation will eventually start slowing in the first quarter will be very important in determining when the Fed actually does start increasing rate hikes.Ellen Zentner So that was a lot to unpack about the outlook. There's many more details, and we'll pick out interesting parts for folks as we go along. A new podcast to come. And Robert. Thanks for taking the time to talk.Robert Rosener Great speaking with you, as always, Ellen.Ellen Zentner As a reminder, if you enjoy Thoughts on the Market, please take a moment to rate and review us on the Apple Podcast app. It helps more people find the show.

It is an incredibly exciting time in the boating industry. We have seen two years of record sales, dealers are selling production slots because they can't get inventory fast enough, more Americans than ever are enjoying time on the water with family and friends, and the pace of innovation continues to accelerate which is providing a better and more frictionless boating experience. Within the innovation category, electric propulsion is experiencing an influx of investment, and new motor options are steadily hitting the market. General Motors recently invested $150 million into Pure Watercraft. ePropulsion just announced a Series B raise in the tens of millions of dollars. Arc electric boats has raised over $30 million with investors including actor Will Smith, music mogul Sean Combs, and NBA superstar Kevin Durant. Torqeedo continues to impress, recently winning METSTRADE's Boat Builders Award in collaboration with Groupe Beneteau's Excess brand and mobility technology company ZF. I enjoyed speaking recently with Ben Sorkin, founder of Flux Marine. Ben grew up boating on our home lake in upstate NY, Lake George, which has me even more excited about what he is doing. Ben has been able to merge his passion for boating with his passion for tinkering into an exciting start up career. After stints interning at Tesla and working full time designing electric systems at Navatek, plus a decade of planning and researching electric motors on his own, Ben co-founded Flux Marine with the goal of revolutionizing electric propulsion in the marine environment. It was a great time to catch up with Ben as he and his team recently took home two big awards at the Newport boat show, Best Green Product and the Best New Boating Operation, Maintenance or Safety Product. Ben and I discussed how he got his boating and fix-it start, the benefits and challenges of electric boating, we got into the weeds a bit about battery technology and talked about the power their outboards will be brining to the market. Full disclosure, I am an investor in Flux marine and will be purchasing one of their motors to use in our Freedom Boat Club fleet this coming year. Enjoy the conversation!

Let's get down to business. 01:01.77 mikebledsoe ah ah yeah so we do ah we want to talk about excess today. Um, and you know max and I have both experienced a lot of excess in our lives and there's a lot of benefits to it. But there's also some pitfalls and ah. We're going to dig into what those may be and how to what you can do to navigate these waters of life because I do think that we're all drawn to excess in some ways. What are some of the what are some of the ways you were drawn to excess. And your in your youth max. 01:38.94 Max Shank Oh gosh I think it's important to have a distinction between surplus and excess which seems very similar. So for me I just always wanted a surplus of cash and. Like everybody else I wanted to be loved so I wanted love power and attention in that order which is something we've talked about a lot and I think having a surplus is a natural inclination for people. That's why. People set up retirement accounts. That's why they have a savings account That's why they get married so they can lock in their relationship and you know with excess you might eat too much food I mean I definitely did that. When I was a kid and still I just exercise enough that it doesn't matter so I'm not really overweight but when I was a kid I was fat and it was because I just ate too much food I consumed too much television and later too much video games and then. Um, it's it's just an over concentration or an imbalance in 1 area and I think it's really common because the only way you can improve your situation is to increase your means which is get more. You can reduce your needs which is needless or you can change your attitude about it and those are really the only 3 ways that I think you can improve your situation so I was hyper focused on increasing my means which is gaining more power. And early on I really just was so focused on getting more and spending less because I was living a very Spartan existence and is because I was very focused on building up that Surplus so I would eventually feel. Secure financially because that was probably the biggest insecurity I felt when I was young younger I guess. 03:55.53 mikebledsoe Well, what? what was? Ah, What was some of the things that you were that was you build up a surplus but what what did you experience in excess I Mean well you talked about food ah video games all these types of things. Did you experience. Um, excess and fitness or anything like that. 04:17.24 Max Shank Oh yeah, Absolutely um, crazy excess and it was because it was so positively reinforced right? people. We think we've talked about this before I would do a strong thing and people like oh yeah, we we really love it when you do this strong thing and in my head I'm like okay so this is how I get love now is I do a strong thing and then I just layer more and more on top of that without really pausing to think about the big picture. 04:36.14 mikebledsoe Ah. 04:47.39 Max Shank Of the life I'm trying to live So I think I was excessively concerned with how I appeared to others and that probably drove a lot of the destructive behaviors. 05:00.90 mikebledsoe Yeah I think um I mean when when we first brought this up what I thought of was excess leads to being desensitized and putting ourselves like in extreme situations. 05:12.65 Max Shank Um, what. 05:20.94 mikebledsoe Repeatedly over time will desensitize us so ah, exposing yourself to extreme amounts of sugar over a period of time will desensitize your your cells to insulin and your ability to produce insulin may be reduced. Um. And you stare at the sun too long in excess your eyes will become desensitized to be ah ability to sense light and so I think that I think and then the the first thing that really came up to this I think what led to this was the talk about porn. 05:58.39 Max Shank No. 06:00.16 mikebledsoe And how porn can is porn in itself to me I've gotten to the point where just any porn at all seems excessive around Sexuality. So I mean if I want to say excessive. You know there's there's porn and then there's excessive porn. I'm sure it can be consumed in a way that is beneficial or helpful or maybe not so bad. But if we look at if we zoom out and look at the the whole picture of sex I think consuming porn does lead to a desensitizing of. Men and women alike I think men are more susceptible to it. Ah get deep. They get desensitized to ah just what they think a sexual experience should look like the you know. 06:39.93 Max Shank Less imagination too. 06:53.21 mikebledsoe You're more than likely not going to be picking up that girl that looks like the porn star you were looking at Yesterday. Ah you know, ah that you were saying ah you know the volleyball team's not going to just you know? Yeah yeah, like. 07:03.30 Max Shank Wander into my sex dungeon. Yeah, exactly like it's just very unrealistic expectations and pornography is interesting because there's no clear definition of what it is like we don't know what it is just the same the same thing with ah addiction. We have ideas of what it is addiction. You could say is a repeated behavior that gives you an outcome that you don't want right? that could be 1 definition but there's a lot of dissent There's a lot of disagreement. About what addiction really means there's a lot of disagreement about what porn really means because I don't know if you've ever checked out the fitness hashtag on Instagram that that is like soft core pornography like that that'll get me going. No worries now. 07:57.16 mikebledsoe That's true. Well yeah I've had ah I've had to unfollow so many people because ah I don't have the problem now because I I put a stop to it. But yeah, there's I'm on Instagram I'm following this girl and then next thing I know I'm like. 07:59.93 Max Shank Back in my heyday. 08:12.13 mikebledsoe Oh shit, you know I got to go finish this. It leads it leads me next thing I know I'm I'm porn up you know. 08:17.71 Max Shank Well like you said there's a way to appreciate visual and audible stimuli. In a constructive way and there's also the shameful slow destruction of your soul as you just watch like more and more depraved stuff and frankly you know I'm not into kink shaming. You know some people really like um pottery. And some people like hooking their nipples up to a car battery and it's not for me to say which of those is like the best way to spend your leisure Time. You know what? I mean if you like what like who could who can say what you do with your leisure. But. 09:09.30 mikebledsoe I'm with you? Well I I would say this that the longer I go without porn the more interesting My actual sex life becomes. 09:16.70 Max Shank And I mean I don't know if you still whack off. But if you use your imagination for that. It's kind of like you're you're flexing a muscle a little bit practice practicing your imagination. 09:27.77 mikebledsoe What do you mean flexing what flexing ah flat flexing the imagination muscle. 09:34.22 Max Shank Yeah, exactly so rather than being dependent on this stimulus that you may or may not feel shame about and once again, like you said it's just a ah slippery slope into something that is more and more stimulating just the same way that serial. Has become more and more sugary where it started out as like oh it's honey Nut cheerios. We're going to put like a little sprinkle of honey in there and people are like yeah and then before you know it, we got cookie crisp which is a bowl of tiny cookies like how the fuck did that become cereal. 09:59.60 mikebledsoe Oh. 10:09.37 mikebledsoe Yeah. 10:11.74 Max Shank And it's just like ah it's an arms race and excess is what kills most people in America there's no question about it. Excess food creates stagnation. You never have time to clear out all of the um. Energy all the sugar or the Metabolites. So the byproducts of these reactions and um excess I refer to the creation consumption ratio. So if your creation consumption ratio is just wildly out of balance. You're not going to feel a lot of authority over your own life and that's what's so fun is the word authority has the word author right in the middle there. So the more time you practice being an author. Rather than a reader you're going to feel more agency over your life too. Otherwise you're going to just be fully addicted to the dopamine machine and it sort of doesn't matter what lever you're pulling whether it's a porn lever or. A social media lever or ah, different consumable drugs. You know it's it's hard to say what's going to be more destructive for a person. Um, you're probably better off having. Ah, few cocktails every single night then spending many hours scrolling through social media and getting into the excessive comparison because now it's like if I compare my professional success and aesthetic appearance to dwayne the rock johnson. Just going to feel like ah a pile of shit every day I'm going to feel so far behind the 8 ball I'm like what am I doing but it's not natural to compare yourself against the top fraction of a percentage of mutants. Of 7 billion like it just it just makes no sense so you get in that comparison. 12:24.41 mikebledsoe Well, you're also comparing yourself to you know photo shoots and best days you like I'm not I don't when I'm having a down day I'm not posting the fucking Instagram I'm not I'm not posting the the 7 hours I sat at my desk and ran. 12:30.76 Max Shank Yeah, all that stuff. 12:44.35 mikebledsoe Ran numbers to talk about. You know how cool entrepreneurship is I wait until I wait I mean I Even even I'm someone who tries to like be as real as possible on on social media. 12:46.45 Max Shank We We should do that We should do a whole series of like the lowest moments he ah ah. 13:02.50 mikebledsoe And I still like it's like oh yeah, I've rented this dope car and I'm driving across these cliffs and this is what entrepreneurship looks like but you know there was also 5 other days. Yeah everything I got paid for it. 13:08.61 Max Shank That was all I did that was all I did I It was fully curated I Only showed you a specific angle of snapshots of my let the best ones too and people. We're under this idea that I was just racking up. W's every single day like it couldn't be easier I'm like doing all this amazing stuff man his whole life must be like that. It's like are you kidding me. 13:38.66 mikebledsoe Yeah, or it's like a lot of people will go man. You're doing so many things I'm like well I'm involved with a lot of things I'm not actually doing a lot of things. Ah but I could see how that looks like it when you when you're looking online. 13:55.44 Max Shank Well oh. 13:56.93 mikebledsoe And yeah, you're comparing yourself to my online image again. It's yeah it won't be helpful but I like what you're saying the excess comparison because I mean avoiding comparison Altogether that's that's difficult. But. 14:03.19 Max Shank Yeah, conversely. 14:14.80 mikebledsoe Social media has created an experience where excess comparison is very easy and you are you are comparing yourself to the best on the planet I mean the benefit of the internet is that look when I have kids I'm not just having them learn from any math teacher. 14:19.63 Max Shank Yeah, oh. 14:33.93 mikebledsoe Um, probably gonna enroll them in the khan academy which is absolutely free online. Ah and have 1 of the world's best mathematics teachers teach them. It makes sense but the flip side of that is is that the excess comparison. It also is made available. 14:36.19 Max Shank And. 14:51.76 mikebledsoe And comparing ourselves against people who are the best in the world at a thing. 14:55.58 Max Shank That's what allows us to do better. Um, it's kind of like the 4 minute mile. No 1 could break it no 1 could break it 1 guy broke it. He showed it was possible and because news traveled so fast. Everyone's like oh man so that's how it works. 15:00.12 mikebledsoe M. 15:12.28 Max Shank And the same thing's true with all kinds of stuff like you can watch hours and hours of fight film or sport film to really evaluate what the best in the world are doing I think the you know I tend to be my own harshest critic. Which is why I Also don't really care what people say because like I've already been as harsh as I can toward myself about the truth of what I'm doing well or not doing well and I think as long as you can do that in a like a kind way. 15:42.23 mikebledsoe Yeah. 15:49.72 Max Shank You can be kind to yourself. That's probably the best way to go about it. 15:51.65 mikebledsoe Well I think what you're getting at what I'm hearing in all this is It's is long. You want to make sure that you're it's staying useful. So your comparison can be useful ah and and pushing you forward. 16:09.74 Max Shank Discernment. 16:10.67 mikebledsoe It's probably not going to create a lot of joy for you but it may create. Ah it may create drive and for for accomplishment and and whatever the things that we tend to value as ah westerners. Anyway. 16:17.50 Max Shank Um, yeah. 16:23.84 Max Shank I think you want to have discernment um with regard to actions rather judgment of the person and I think that would be best applied to yourself and to other people like if you. Safe something stupid which I mean I think that's happened a few times on the podcast already. Not today maybe also today I'm not saying that you're a stupid person by by Judgment. You know what? I mean but. 16:55.84 mikebledsoe M. 16:58.43 Max Shank Just the same way I would think that oh I said a stupid thing I wouldn't judge myself as stupid because of that you know I'm saying so it's really important you have to be discerning Otherwise you're you're like living in fantasy land and you're never evaluating behavior so you never have a chance to learn. 17:02.81 mikebledsoe Um, well yeah, there's um. 17:14.71 mikebledsoe Yeah, it's a gift I What I mean recording my my thoughts and then putting them online for everybody to hear talk about a personal development tool I Almost every show I leave saying you know what. 17:31.52 Max Shank So just. 17:32.25 mikebledsoe I'm not even sure I Really believe that thing I said or or what I said man, there's so many holes in that I haven't really I really haven't thought about it from every angle. So I like talking to somebody else on a podcast and they can poke holes and I go Wow I was running around. 17:43.62 Max Shank And here. 17:51.34 mikebledsoe I Actually haven't thought this all the way through or from from as many angles as I would like to if I'm going to speak about it and so ah, ah I Invest a lot of time in learning because I don't want to be. Ah, hate being wrong like people that's 1 of the things that most people almost nobody want ah as like ah the biggest 1 of the biggest fears of people is to be wrong. So with the the problem is is most people they don't want to be wrong. So bad that they'll just dig in and and. 18:10.00 Max Shank Oh. 18:28.92 mikebledsoe Ignore any information that is going to challenge their confirmation. Bias. 18:34.37 Max Shank They'll create a fantasy that makes their wrongness right. 18:36.56 mikebledsoe Right? But on the other side of that like I'm I don't want to be wrong. So I got to make sure that what I say is the right thing versus trying to make the thing that I believe the right thing and convince people of it and I don't think there's any way. 18:45.10 Max Shank And. Right. 18:54.62 mikebledsoe You know where human nature is to do a little bit of both but there is there are some people who are really far on 1 side and then there's other people who are really putting forth conscious effort to to do it in a way that's that's actually useful and I think it's obvious when you run into those people. Because when you get talking to them. They they're what they're talking about is well fortified with with things that are hard to disagree with. 19:21.21 Max Shank I agree complete that's part of why I like our conversation so much is we get to test out our ideas against someone who is fairly objective but also pretty kind about it so you don't feel like we're in a dangerous place. We're going to judge each other personally which it feels safe to me like I don't go fuck. Ah, what's interesting. You mentioned before whenever I've released anything. 19:41.25 mikebledsoe It's a safe space. 19:54.66 Max Shank Whenever I've finished a podcast whenever I've finished and sent out a book whenever I've completed a course I've never come away thinking that was perfect. My very first response is like going through an inventory. All the stuff that I messed up all the stuff that I wish I had done differently. What I wish I had included what I wish I had excluded and I think that's a big part of what makes you better. It can go too far though. So. 20:27.36 mikebledsoe Well this is this I mean I I teach people how to do this most people are so afraid of looking bad that and looking like they're wrong that they they won't ever launch their their coaching program or their course. 20:43.60 Max Shank Man. 20:46.21 mikebledsoe Or whatever it is and I think 1 of the benefits that I've had I imagine you're similar in this way because I I know this is just um, ah an attribute that a lot of successful people have is it's 80 percent good enough. So I'm going to launch it and so I think. 21:00.20 Max Shank Um, right. 21:04.57 mikebledsoe Most people and whether it's 1 hundred percent or 80 percent is likely a feeling because there's too many variables to be able to say you know you either feel like it's right or you feel like it's not. It's it's hard to come up with objective. Um, ah. 21:12.23 Max Shank Right. 21:23.60 mikebledsoe An objective measure of the quality of a content or whatever, especially when it's coming from yourself. So so what I like is like look get it 80 percent there as soon as it feels like 80 percent launch it. But after that continue to improve it. There's no reason to just. 21:25.58 Max Shank I Think that. 21:41.68 mikebledsoe Let it be but don't not launch it until you know, don't wait till it 1 hundred percent to launch. It. So like I spent the last ten months rewriting all the curriculum for the strong coach and it it is much much better, much much better for having done that. But I will finish the upgrade by the end of the year so I will have spent 1 year upgrading the content and I won't need to teach touch it for 2 or 3 now that I've done it to this degree? yeah. 22:14.89 Max Shank Unless you learn something new wishful which will likely happen and I think that's part of the reason that's part of the reason I bring it up too because. 22:21.50 mikebledsoe Definitely gonna happen. but but I even wait I will learn something new I won't I won't go in there and change it immediately. All I'll wait 6 months I want to I want to learn like 3 new things before I go and update all my curriculum because it changes. 22:26.72 Max Shank Great. 22:33.53 Max Shank Right? You don't need to have a third edition just because you learned 1 new paragraph I think the reason I bring this up is people get the idea that my stuff is like really good. 22:38.49 mikebledsoe Oh. 22:51.65 Max Shank The courses, the books, the videos the podcasts that I do um but the reality is I've never felt like perfectly happy with it once I've let it out there so kind of just know that going in. That you're not going to be like oh now it's perfectly ready and don't don't buy into this fantasy that once you do launch it that you're gonna be like ah Perfect. It's It's exactly perfect I'll never need to look back at that Again. So So don't kid yourself into thinking. It's gonna work out. Exactly Perfect. You will think of things that you wish you had done differently and that's just the nature of how it goes even when things on paper go crazy good like thousands of buyers. Ah you know, basically no refunds. 23:47.80 mikebledsoe Yeah. 23:47.64 Max Shank That kind of thing. 23:57.72 Max Shank Some excessive silence here for a podcast. 24:03.17 mikebledsoe Ah I mean if you don't if you don't remember it it. Ah I got the software set up to cut out the the long pauses. 24:08.78 Max Shank Oh not I Remember. So what do you think? excess food from here. 24:19.33 mikebledsoe Well, you know I I um I wanted to circle back on something you said earlier which is being the the author you know Authority has the word author in it and I think that there is a. 24:28.82 Max Shank Um. 24:38.74 mikebledsoe Ah, in excess of outsourcing your authority and when I think about author I mean 1 1 way people could look at it is. You're the author of the story of your life that seems a bit conceptual I like it. But. 24:54.26 Max Shank I Want man. 24:56.80 mikebledsoe It's it. You know when you say that to someone like oh yeah, yeah, I'm the author of my life. But. 25:00.23 Max Shank Well, you get to put this you You are the spin doctor. You are the propagandist of your own life. You know So I think it is. It's the frame of the picture right? You remember things a certain way. But that's based on how you color. 25:07.44 mikebledsoe Totally. 25:17.78 mikebledsoe Well, this is what I want to point out is that what does an author do an author just doesn't tell stories an author writes they take pen to paper or they they type word and they write the story out and. 25:18.54 Max Shank Those experiences right. 25:30.62 Max Shank Yeah. 25:37.28 mikebledsoe Ah, most people don't take the time to write out their story. They'll dream up their story and from what I can tell is if you leave your authorship up to just what's happening in your own mind and you're not. 25:41.14 Max Shank Oh. 25:54.62 mikebledsoe Putting a lot of symbols outside of yourself by you know, writing then you're going to be more subject to other people's authorship. You're going to be more susceptible outside Authority because the the you know who who? ah. 26:05.49 Max Shank Totally. 26:14.30 mikebledsoe Are the best best authors on the planet that they they their their authorship creates the most power they have the most power as authors. 26:17.10 Max Shank Ah. 26:24.43 Max Shank Um, I would say either lawyers or ah, the media people who are yeah. 26:30.60 mikebledsoe Yeah Lawyers I would say lawyers because they they will write something down. They'll create a law and then people will have to follow it. Not only that they convince these these lawmakers slash policymakers they convinced these these police. These policy enforcers to be willing to kill people in order to enforce this law that they authored they authored it out of opinion. They wrote it down and then they convinced a ah segment of the population. 26:56.75 Max Shank Right. 27:07.69 mikebledsoe That it's okay for them to go out there and enforce this on enforce other people. 27:08.32 Max Shank And that's where the media comes into play right? because they need to um, put it to a vote in the court of public opinion for people to have a positive frame of mind around it in order for it to to get through. 27:21.56 mikebledsoe Yeah, well, that's how they that's how you got to let people know about the laws you got to let them know about it somehow and the the news is here just to inform you about what is and ah. 27:25.75 Max Shank Right? Because they're moonline. 27:34.30 Max Shank I Know you don't believe that but it just sounds so chilling anyway. 27:41.82 mikebledsoe Ah, so it's um, so. 27:44.48 Max Shank The news is to get you to think not only a certain way but it's to distract you from thinking about a different way and that's that's probably the worst part about it is. There's an excess of data points. You know. 27:52.43 mikebledsoe Yeah. 28:01.59 Max Shank We're basically fixed on what we can focus on and every day there's something new and it's tugging at your emotions and the people get played like a fiddle. So I don't give any credence to what people believe I understand that they might feel a certain way. But the fact of the matter is that people are are told what to think about and that is actually maybe even more sinister than being told what to think it's like hey this happened so you should think this way about it like the the main thing is hey everyone think about this today. Everyone think about this today hey think about 1 dude who died in a state that you don't live in. You're like wait. What like that's what we're talking about that's what everyone is talking about that is insanity. 28:52.26 mikebledsoe Yeah, the amount of focus that they're able to bring so many people's awareness into into a single focus while while the entire world. There's other things happening and then only that bring your focus on something that actually doesn't matter to you. 29:00.80 Max Shank Ah, hope. 29:07.99 Max Shank And it's so it's excessive new things and it's excessive focus on things that don't really matter because if we were trying to think about what matters politically there are only 2 things that matter who's in charge and what's the extent of their authority and everything else is total bullshit. 29:09.90 mikebledsoe It's not impacting your life. 29:27.52 Max Shank I would feel really comfortable arguing that point with just about anybody quite frankly, but all of these other little little nitpicky things like doesn't matter. It's just ah, an illusion. It's a smokescreen. It's a distraction. It's misdirection. 29:30.33 mikebledsoe What. 29:41.48 mikebledsoe Yeah, well we have an think people are more susceptible I mean the propaganda is interesting because what we have like if you if you look at old propaganda people who wrote about propaganda decades ago. Um. There's 1 guy can't remember his name right now he said true propaganda can only exist in a country where ah like a place like North korea where they have total control over information. 30:12.77 Max Shank What's the difference between propaganda and true propaganda I don't know you're saying the only place that true propaganda can exist is a place like North korea. 30:15.69 mikebledsoe What do you mean? Oh true, but where where where they where they have absolute control over how you're gonna think what you're gonna think about oh we do? Well what I'm saying is like this was during a time where. 30:27.44 Max Shank You don't think we have that in America you don't think that. 30:35.65 mikebledsoe Um, where they were doing a lot of comparison I think this was like this is probably ah propaganda to get you to believe that communism is is worse. Um, which I think it is but the yeah exactly. 30:37.18 Max Shank Ah. 30:49.15 Max Shank It's worse for everybody except the people in charge. 30:53.62 mikebledsoe The did you know that Jackie chan is a communist. He's he's part of the ccp he is chinese yeah. 30:58.40 Max Shank He's Chinese right? You got basically no choice I don't know what I don't know what he actually believes but the incentive to not be disappeared is probably pretty tremendous. So. 31:03.22 mikebledsoe Ah, yeah, but but but he but he but he could but he could have he? yeah. Ah. 31:14.44 Max Shank Like if I were chinese guess what I would be a communist too like hey and and hey look just in case things go south. Yeah yeah, and just look just in in case things go south here in America I just want our soon to be overlords to know that I believed in them the whole time and I swear my fealty to you. 31:18.85 mikebledsoe Ah, you'd be the best communist. 31:34.33 Max Shank You know, whatever it takes look I Knew you guys could do it. Ah. 31:34.42 mikebledsoe Um, I was over here. You know I was helping out over here the whole time you couldn't see it. But yeah. 31:41.61 Max Shank If you compare to different parts of history like I don't know that that's the funny thing is there are um places in America where it's like really harsh to live and I was talking to someone the other day and they were talking to me. About my childhood and their face was 1 of like pity and sadness because they knew me growing up and they knew what my childhood was like and I don't think of it that way I think of I think of myself as like pretty lucky guy because I compare it to well. 32:09.52 mikebledsoe A. 32:18.95 Max Shank You know there are some villages in Africa where twice a year they steal all the children you know like warlords just come in and steal all the children and and I'm thinking to myself. Yeah, like you know I wasn't so bad to to help out with the rent when I was twelve you know what I mean it's like it's. 32:31.56 mikebledsoe Right? I mean yeah, a lot of people will say that's a yeah, well some people say that sad. But what's the long term benefit of that like who that that formed who you became yeah I was roofing houses when I was like 1213 32:36.12 Max Shank It's not so it's all what you compare to. 32:40.82 Max Shank Who knows who knows it's too. It's too early to tell like the yeah, that's what I'm saying. It's like dude the the whole concept of like giving a ah like 6 year old the grade of an f right? like it's. Oh that kid's failing like we don't know what that kid's gonna grow up and do like we have no clue he his his head isn't even hard yet like he's still got a fucking soft skull like Jesus christ people like we we just try to you know we. 33:03.58 mikebledsoe Bright. 33:10.49 mikebledsoe That's not even are yeah. 33:20.16 Max Shank Excessively Homogenize and that's why we always end up with a worse result and the more you allow people ah just trying to like push everybody into the same square mold because it fits better. 33:25.54 mikebledsoe Can can you explain a homogenous what homogenized means for everybody. 33:36.41 Max Shank Like that's what school does it teaches you to be obedient and to fit in not necessarily um how to live the best life for yourself. How to understand learning how to understand value versus values. 33:50.62 mikebledsoe Well that there's an analogy to this would be ah say homogenized milk like the the milk that you go buy at the store you go to the grocery store in America and you go get the 2 percent or the whole milk. Whatever it is that's homogenized. 33:55.21 Max Shank Exactly. 34:01.54 Max Shank I hope. 34:06.48 mikebledsoe That that milk was taken from a lot of the the same type of genetically modified cows and put into the 1 big vat and mixed all together. You're not getting. You're not getting milk from 1 specific cow and the homogenization that ah coupled with pasteurization which is trying to kill all the germs. 34:13.40 Max Shank My. 34:26.90 mikebledsoe Has basically made milk undigestible to so many most people. But if you if you what would be the opposite ah hetero Zeni is that or heterogenous. Horogen is out of ah, no, That's not the right word. Um, now that the the opposite of that being? Yeah yeah, individual variable um, is gonna create like my more biodiversity. 34:47.59 Max Shank I Don't know probably just variable. Yeah different unique. 35:00.76 mikebledsoe If you're consuming that milk it me I healthier So like I liked it and it might be but that whole huge vat might be poison too and the difference. 35:02.70 Max Shank And it might be poisoned and it might be poisoned. True. But if you but if you boil it 10 times. It won't be and that's that's kind of the argument for trying to make things as safe as possible rather than as free as possible and that's an argument a lot of people. Ah. 35:21.14 mikebledsoe Well should we talk about excess safety excess safety versus excess freedom. Ah. 35:27.66 Max Shank Like. 35:32.37 mikebledsoe Ah, Max has beaten his head against the microphone. 35:38.32 Max Shank Out it that that's like I get it. We can think so far into the future that we're like. And need to get my four ah 1 k I need to get my ira I need to get married I need to do this I want to lock in and secure the future and we're so obsessed with that because we're manic paranoid fuckers and I understand the sensation because I also tend to take a. 30000 foot view and look at the big picture and try to project really far forward into the future. So I can avoid traps and also find the greatest treasures that will give me whatever I think will give me fulfillment even though fulfillment is probably more of an attitude. That you have here and now and just thanking your lucky stars that you made it this far but there is that quote that says people who trade freedom for security will lose both and deserve neither I think it is Benjamin franklin it might be Thomas jefferson but i. 36:43.21 mikebledsoe Yeah I mean it's a Benjamin franklin. Yeah yeah, those get those guys were all writing a lot of letters to each other and those those are some very interesting letters. 36:51.61 Max Shank It's 1 of those guys those. You know what's fascinating about that whole situation is right before the declaration of independence got signed like months before the vast majority of those guys had every intention to stay with England. And as I understand it it was because of Thomas paine writing common sense that flipped them over the edge and started getting them to think about what it's like to be the authority of your own life instead of accepting that authority from outside. 37:27.28 mikebledsoe A. 37:34.50 Max Shank And if we want to talk about security or safety versus freedom I think it's important to recognize that weak people are going to be the most susceptible to that. Because not only will they accept whatever abuse their ah savior brings them. They will also feel justified in weakening their neighbors so that they will feel more safe. 38:06.62 mikebledsoe Oh. 38:09.38 Max Shank And and that's what's really sinister about it right? like it's 1 thing to be weak yourself, but it's another thing to vote to basically rape your neighbor because you are not strong enough yourself and that's why they they weaken people divide and conquer and people. Feel more fragmented less United. It's very very interesting. We could explore the psychology of that but it does just throw people right into. Ah the phrase limbic hijack. So you just get thrown into your lizard brain where all you care about is safety and you. Can't use your mammalian brain which is love and community or your neocortex which is big picture thinking and problem solving and that's that's 1 of the evils of the propaganda as it takes you out of your wizard. 38:54.67 mikebledsoe Yeah, yeah. 39:04.44 Max Shank Brain the neocortex and just pumps you into the lizard brain. 39:07.42 mikebledsoe Well Ah, what? what came up for me is thinking about ah people who who value safety. Um, when people are being sold safety outside from outside and someone else is going to provide the safety I think I think providing. 39:21.62 Max Shank Where. 39:26.20 mikebledsoe Putting a lot of attention and and having a surplus of safety built up that you're responsible for that you you have control over you know this may be having a certain amount of money in the bank gold bars in your safe guns Ammo Seeds land. All those things. 39:31.50 Max Shank M. 39:45.69 mikebledsoe Ah, that is that safety when I but but the problem is is that's hard. That's it takes work to do that. You have to you have to think for yourself. You have to learn new things. Ah, and you do have to think ahead. 39:56.16 Max Shank It's really hard. 40:04.77 mikebledsoe But then somebody comes along says you know what I got you I got these guys that are policy enforcers they'll make sure that no 1 robs. It kills you. You know what? if if you run out of money I got you I'll give you some money. Ah, and. 40:05.88 Max Shank I got it. 40:19.71 Max Shank Um. 40:23.86 mikebledsoe You know what? if you run out of money and food then you know what? ah you can at least get milk and bread homogenized though homogenized. So ah, it's and I think that's what Benjamin franklin was getting at with you know, it's not actually safety when someone else is providing you safety that rug can be pulled out from you. 40:28.85 Max Shank So. 40:43.77 mikebledsoe Underneath you in any moment because it's not yours. Yeah, yeah, so I think that what ah people really desire to be is anti-fragile and so to me. 40:47.32 Max Shank It's dependence versus Independence That's all. 41:03.26 mikebledsoe That is where ah true safety lies and so's to be Anti-fragile there's 2 things that I see have to be available and that is planning for the future in a way that you understand that there are things that we can do. To to mitigate risk and at the same time hold adaptability and be able to change in the moment and ah to me That's what leads to a good Anti-fagile state and that's what people actually want but they're so unaware of how to. Create anti-fragile systems in their life that it is like you know what just fuck it. This is a ah complex issue I'll outsource that. 41:47.36 Max Shank Well, it's about exposure that's the key word I think because you can either expose yourself to stress and become more adaptable to the stress that will come in life or you can. Reduce the exposure and what happens if you reduce the exposure is eventually you end up in a tiny lockbox you completely eliminate exposure So at the extreme ends you have training. Um. Injecting yourself with small amounts of poison. So that if just in case, you're poisoned. You will have built up ah an immunity to it and then on the other hand you have I'm never going to touch dirt I'm never going to leave my house I'm only going to drink homogenized milk. 42:33.84 mikebledsoe A. 42:44.55 Max Shank That is provided to me by someone else. So I'm not going to expose myself to any risk whatsoever and it works better if people get to assume their own risk because you need to have the um. Person who is making the choice ah suffer or experience those consequences and that's when you get the most evil shit is when the person making the choices is not experiencing the consequences case in point. Um. People who vote on what crime and punishment or laws are to be in place for our medical system. Don't use that creation. They use something separate that is better right? So You shouldn't have. 43:37.50 mikebledsoe E. 43:41.89 Max Shank Ah, bridge build like in in ancient Rome I think we talked about it if you were a bridge builder soon as the bridge is Done. You sit down underneath the bridge while they drive shit over it because you need to have the incentive and the risk and the choice. Like all in the right place and yeah, exactly oh I Actually really like because we we probably talked to a lot of coaches. Also the difference between support and Accountability. So accountability. 44:01.74 mikebledsoe It's accountability Ultimate accountability. Yeah. 44:17.16 Max Shank If I'm a coach and I want to provide you with support that means I'm going to answer your questions if I want to provide you with accountability that means I'm going to ask you questions and I think both of those are super valuable. So the difference between support. 44:27.72 mikebledsoe But e. 44:33.81 Max Shank And accountability from a coaching standpoint I think is really useful. 44:36.78 mikebledsoe I Like that like that distinction I was also thinking about ah you you you were going off on stress and I got me thinking about excess stress ah and ah stress in excess is called distress. 44:47.79 Max Shank Oh. 44:55.94 mikebledsoe And the ah the stress that's actually beneficial that is going to provide you with enough stimulus that you can adapt to and learn would be u-stress and so I really like to keep that in mind when I'm training or when I'm learning a new skill or I'm. I'm doing anything in my business and ah 1 really good sign to see if you're in excess of stress is how you're breathing. So if you find yourself holding your breath a lot. You can be sitting at your computer running some numbers if you're holding your breath. You're experiencing distress. Your. 45:25.74 Max Shank Um, normally. 45:35.69 mikebledsoe You're not pumping out the hormones and and neurotransmitters that are conducive to learning. But if you're breathing nice and slow and you know semi-deep you're you're going to be your body's going to be filled with neurotransmitters hormones that. Are conducive to learning new skills and staying sharp and and not getting too much tunnel vision. So you you can hold the big picture while while focusing in on something. So I I Want to put that out. There is just like a that's something. That's that's useful that you can check in with yourself. If you're if you're experiencing ah that that excess of stress that's 1 way to figure it out and there to me. There's a way of expanding that that zone of youres ah or or the growth zone and that is by expanding your capacity to stay calm in the midst Of. Of chaos. 46:33.46 Max Shank That's what I was just going to say is the skill is really being relaxed under stress and the more you expose yourself to it and dose it appropriately the more. 46:37.96 mikebledsoe Yeah. 46:49.19 Max Shank Effective. You will be the more resilient you will be the more useful. You will be people want to be useful you know and if you're weak and dependent. You're not useful and that might sound kind of harsh. But you're really, you're not doing any faith doing anyone any favors. 47:07.16 mikebledsoe What. 47:09.14 Max Shank In fact, in our current culture. You're you're really harming people. 47:13.46 mikebledsoe Yeah I think that that is the job of that that is 1 of the definitions I like to identify and define. What makes an adult 1 of my definitions is you're able to parent yourself. You're either. 47:27.76 Max Shank Any independent. 47:31.41 mikebledsoe You're you're able to mother and father yourself emotionally but also physically in the world but the other part of being an adult your job as an adult and it doesn't mean that if you haven't done if you haven't found the thing. But if you're on the path to finding a thing that. Is most useful like it's it's your job as an adult like a true adult that's contributing to society. They have made it their job to be Useful. You know where am I most useful in the world where am I most useful to society if if you were useful. Um, so useful that people in ways that other people find valuable. They're going to give you a lot of money for it and so I think that a lot of people who ah are struggling with money. They really just. 48:13.94 Max Shank Further. 48:25.17 mikebledsoe They're usually focused on themselves in a way and they're not actually focused on how they can be most most useful and and if you want to have a lot of money be useful at things at really expensive things be useful at things that people find incredibly valuable. So. Either solve a big problem for a few people or solve um a small problem for millions of people or billions of people and it really to me. That's the question I ask myself over time is is this the most useful use of my time for me is it the most useful. What? Ah, what are my my talents. My strengths my skills that are most useful to society. How can I contribute how can I package this in a way that I find to be beneficial and other people find beneficial too and I think that that leads to more of that that peace and contentment. 49:19.56 Max Shank Well, there's something quite beautiful because as you and as you know I'm all about choice and freedom as the and love as the really important pillars for a society to function. Well when you offer. Something to somebody and they voluntarily purchase it. There's something really nice about that when you order someone to do something under penalty of stick. That's not that cool if you ask me so I'm I'm more about carrots. And if you are delivering something if you are offering something and delivering something that is truly valuable and you are not excessively spending. You'll never be poor. It's impossible and there's something very honest about the Market. That determines what people actually want and I think rather than getting caught up in the fact that it's numbers because the numbers are just about accounting. But if you offer something to someone that is really worth it for them. They're always going to take it. You know. So I think the fact that free choice is based on voluntary action rather than forced action and that there is a truth to someone paying for your product or service. It means they actually do want it I remember reading. Long time ago in the four hour work week how your friends will lie to you about your idea, you'll be like hey I got this idea for a widget What do you think and your friends are like oh my god that sounds amazing. You're so smart I love you ha ha and then you're like great I have a bunch in the trunk. Do you want to buy 1 and they're like ah no actually i. 50:57.67 mikebledsoe A. 51:14.30 Max Shank So so people will lie and say oh that's a great idea when in actuality they they don't really believe that otherwise they would put their money where their mouth is. 51:22.96 mikebledsoe Yeah, that that's 1 reason I I advise a lot of times coaches want to give away their thing for free or at such a cheap rate early on I go like ah this just for research I'm like that's not research, you're researching people who don't care about your shit and. Until you get and then or or they'll launch them like oh I've got a hundred people that are interested I'm like okay and mean that doesn't mean shit either. Ah and it doesn't mean it shit until money's in the bank because that's that's the true indicator of of whether people value it or not. 51:49.72 Max Shank Ah. 51:59.25 Max Shank Is that don't count your chickens before they've hatched. 52:02.67 mikebledsoe Oh my God It's all man these ideas have been around for a long time. 52:07.71 Max Shank Those old sayings are probably all you need to succeed if you actually paid attention to them. Ah, people people do accept people. Do people do excessive thinking excessive learning ah like that's 1 of my kinks that I'm into. 52:12.77 mikebledsoe I I agree I agree I come back a lot of that shit. 52:26.11 Max Shank I Like to learn about stuff that won't help me at all and I recognize that it's entertainment I understand you know mental lattice work Framework Blah Blah Blah Whatever but I recognize that it's it's recreation Basically the amount of stuff. 52:38.90 mikebledsoe Yeah. 52:41.77 Max Shank That you need to really focus on and pay attention to in order to live happily and in some level of abundance is so minimal you know most people kill themselves I think I've said this before on the podcast in America most. Death is self-caed because you could cherry pick and be like oh no, it's heart disease or no, it's diabetes. It's like what are those diseases about those are diseases of excess right? like you are either responsible for eating too many fritos and watching. 53:10.82 mikebledsoe Right. 53:19.67 Max Shank You know too many episodes of the Jersey shore or you're not but the problem is if you blame. There's no end to the blaming right? if you see a fat kid with fat parents. You'd be like oh well, that's of course the parent's fault and it's the parent's responsibility. 53:32.96 mikebledsoe I Thought it was genetics. 53:39.30 Max Shank Anyway, So yeah, it's Monkey See Monkey do is more like it and I think. 53:43.45 mikebledsoe It is what it is Yeah because yeah, you go far, you go far enough back in that family lineage they weren't fat eaten potatoes during a famine. 53:54.52 Max Shank Exactly and I think once again, we can be excessively looking to blame rather than effectively looking for responsibility and I think the difference between fault or blame and responsibility is a huge 1 because it's so easy I mean I lived with a chip on my shoulder for years and years and years and was like in my mind thinking about all the people who had wronged me. You know that kind of destructive thinking but the reality is is that here and now none of that matters. 54:23.31 mikebledsoe Yeah. 54:31.28 Max Shank If You can thank your lucky stars that you're alive and probably literate and you have all of these advantages. There are stores full of Food. You probably have a refrigerator a telephone a magic telephone that can teach you anything you have so many advantages. And whether it's your parents' fault that you're fat or lazy or whatever or not kind of doesn't Matter. It's your responsibility now to decide what you'd like to do from here on out and that's where you take back that Authority that's where you take back that authorship and like you said you put the pen down on paper. And you're going to clarify your thinking to an enormous level and I I do that every morning even if it's something that isn't directly related to me earning more dollars but it usually will help me make more sense of the world. 55:24.74 mikebledsoe Yeah, yeah I I Um I would say I'm on the excessive thinking as Well. The but I mean I appreciate your excessive thinking because what you just said was probably. Product of that have you read the book mastery by Robert green. Yeah, 1 of the things I Really like about that book is um the thing that really stood out was how he highlighted. Ah how? Ah, some of the most innovative people. 55:45.95 Max Shank Yeah Robert greene. Yeah. 56:02.68 mikebledsoe Are a product of having mastered 3 things and it taking about 7 to 10 years to develop mastery around a topic or a subject and ah I up until I read that book I tended to judge myself for going from. 56:04.52 Max Shank The. 56:21.72 mikebledsoe Being really good at 1 thing and then just completely changing industries and going. Oh I was into this but now I do nothing but this and then I did this other thing I go oh it's like you don't know so you know, excessive thinking or excessive collecting of information. 56:24.68 Max Shank Right? Up. Ah. 56:41.30 mikebledsoe I think that I think it's good. You point out it's entertainment but that entertainment is something that's I find to be very useful in just helping my mind relax so that when I do get back to the things I'm focusing on. Um, it's it's my I come at it with ah with a new mind but also fast forward 5 years you know that that information may come useful most of most of my excess thinking in my my youth has been around philosophical topics and how to think and all these things which have been useful but probably the most useful it's become is having conversations like this which people will now listen to and get some benefit from. 57:03.56 Max Shank Um, yeah. 57:20.75 mikebledsoe So we both tend to collect what may seem like trivial information but at some point these dots connect into something that's useful. 57:28.43 Max Shank And that's usually where innovation happens too. I have a super diverse set of interest. Um I have a 3 ring binder. That's full of study guides ah from different topics that range From. Electricity to chemistry and physics and biology and it's basically like study guides for tests but it just happens to be the highest concentration of information about these topics and I like peruse through these things and you know peruse means study deeply. 57:58.86 mikebledsoe Um. 58:07.30 Max Shank Rather than like a quick look over most people misuse that word peruse Peru Yeah, most most people use peruse as like a quick scan but ah, it's just the opposite and if they had perused a dictionary they would they would know that. Ah so so. 58:10.53 mikebledsoe Really I did not know that. 58:26.69 Max Shank Ah I play a bunch of different musical instruments I have a huge diverse set of interests and then my friend is really into investing and that's like all he studies and he's all about sharpening that 1 blade and we talk about how? ah. The Japanese culture is very much that way. There's not a lot of innovation but there is a lot of refinement so they will perhaps not invent the sword but they will take the invention of the sword and refine it into the best sword ever. 59:02.55 mikebledsoe Well, they did it with cars. 59:04.46 Max Shank So there's right, they wouldn't innovate something like that. But once they have it now they they refine it and that's 2 ways. Absolutely. 59:10.54 mikebledsoe What toy toyota is known to be 1 of the most dependable vehicles and it's because of their manufacturing process is they they revolutionize manufacturing through the 6 sigma. Yeah that what they they're basically did they invent the 6 sigma system. 59:20.27 Max Shank Um, that's top down from the culture. 59:27.42 Max Shank Have no clue. Yeah. 59:29.34 mikebledsoe Or yeah, it's they either invented or or again probably refined it. 59:33.67 Max Shank So you could argue that they're spending an excessive amount of time to just refine something rather than being like hey it's good. You got a car already. What's the big deal. So ah, excess is kind of like beauty. It's in the eye of the beholder and. 59:48.95 mikebledsoe Well, that's that's that's also the beauty of capitalism right is somebody the japanese could be excessive and and that whereas the west coast of the United states is excessive and and trying new creative things most of which will never work. Ah. 59:52.39 Max Shank Typically. 01:00:05.94 Max Shank Right? well. 01:00:08.45 mikebledsoe And so the California makes Japan possible and Japan makes california possible. 01:00:15.10 Max Shank Yeah,, there's a big interrelationship between going wide and expanding your focus out or narrowing your focus down. It's kind of like when we talk about focus I say you have the lantern and the laser beam and the lantern is like a soft radiant Glow. In 3 hundred and sixty degrees and the lasers focusing all same amount of energy all onto a single point. 01:00:40.10 mikebledsoe Well this is why you're not going to have a lot of Ph Ds running companies and because they have spent so much of their time focused in on a single subject and in fact, don't know a lot of times. Not all Ph Ds are this way but a lot of Ph Ds I've met. 01:00:50.68 Max Shank A. 01:00:57.68 mikebledsoe Ah, very smart and is 1 area. Not very smart in a lot of other areas and you take somebody who is you know a serial entrepreneur someone who may be ceoing different companies and their focus is much broader. They know a lot. Know a lot of different a little bit about a lot of different things more like ah a swiss army knife or Jack of all trades and is what I've seen. 01:01:22.40 Max Shank Like a concentration of a portfolio like we talked about I think we talked about it last week you know if you put all your eggs in 1 basket. Don't put all your eggs in 1 basket you can earn a lot more but you could also lose all of them. 01:01:36.36 mikebledsoe How many how many of these sayings revolve around chickens and eggs and because you got ducks in a row too. We haven't brought that 1 up I mean yeah, there's something about foul. Yeah. 01:01:46.77 Max Shank That's a good point. A bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush. That's not true anymore that did I already mention that because a bird in the hand has got to be worth like fucking a Hundred in the bush because think how shitty people are at catching birds like I wouldn't be able to catch a fucking. 01:01:54.53 mikebledsoe Now. 01:02:04.64 Max Shank Bird in a bush. Ah. 01:02:05.78 mikebledsoe Ah, yeah, but if you got but our ah bird shot right? Go you might get five? Yeah, all right I think we're we're starting to become unfocused I don't know if that's actually true I think we've been whatever. 01:02:08.79 Max Shank Bird shot. Yeah, a way better chance. 01:02:21.70 Max Shank I Think we explored excess to a good amount. 01:02:24.60 mikebledsoe We're we're explored a lot now. We're getting off another subjects which is great. Yeah, we don't want to excessively discuss excess. So I how does greatness happen. Oh yep. 01:02:33.53 Max Shank That's how greatness happens f y I just to close if you're excessively focused on 1 thing I was talking to someone the other day he dropped by the gym and he trains with his buddy in the garage and he said yeah my friend is always referencing your Stuff. He's always saying oh max says this or max says that he he really? Ah, um, you know he really buys in to what I don't remember exactly the phrase he used but I was like yeah you know I basically just got lucky that I found something that I was crazy interested in. 01:03:07.87 mikebledsoe Yeah. 01:03:10.40 Max Shank Because that's the the big mystery is that I just happen to be really interested in human movement and fitness and pain and psychology and I see that as the way to liberate yourself and. 01:03:15.20 mikebledsoe E. 01:03:24.63 mikebledsoe Yeah. 01:03:28.56 Max Shank I'll totally eat your lunch if you're just going to be a casual observer of exercise If you're just casually interested in exercise you have no chance to compare to me because you're not taking it to that excessive level. So. 01:03:40.95 mikebledsoe Yeah, yeah. 01:03:47.77 Max Shank If you want to be great at something. There's something to be said about total immersion and I think that if you really immerse yourself in a topic. You can be top ten percent in 2 years maybe even less and top ten percent you're still eating lobster at that point. 01:04:03.42 mikebledsoe Yeah, all right I was thinking 1 percent I don't think it takes that I was it. Um, what was the figure if you read 5 books books on a subject you're you're in the top five percent something like I know if that's actually true but that that was like 1 of those. Ah sayings I picked up on is like if you read 5 books on 1 subject because most people never do most people read 1 book on a subject and then they they go. Okay I move on ah on to something else. That's True. That's True. A lot of. 01:04:22.13 Max Shank Sounds like um. I mean it depends on the book. A lot of books suck. They might actually make you dumber about the topic even if the person is smart even if the person is smart. Did I tell you about my favorite Author Lee's favorite book Flow have you ever tried to read that book by. 01:04:38.84 mikebledsoe Popular books are that way. 01:04:44.40 mikebledsoe No oh yeah, we've talked about this chicks and me high. 01:04:49.74 Max Shank Mi high chick sent me good god it's like it's unreadable. Um, and I'm excessively obsessed with the flow state where decision making is easier. Athletic performance is higher. Mental peace is higher mental performance is higher. All these things are better I'm like so interested in the topic and I'm trying to get through this book I'm like this guy doesn't know how to communicate an idea like is driving me nuts. 01:05:13.67 mikebledsoe Yeah, yeah, ah, let's close this bad boy up I um, you know I think my big takeaways here is ah monitor. What's useful for your life and your goals. If you feel you're you're going getting into excess and as max was saying excess is ah very useful if you want to be really good at something but it is probably not the thing that's going to bring you a lot of peace and joy. 01:05:50.94 Max Shank It might if you really like it. 01:05:54.56 mikebledsoe Well I think that ah you know, maybe if you're enjoying the process. 01:06:00.19 Max Shank Yeah I would say that just to wrap it all up with an action point try fasting take a couple days off of food take a couple days off of Media. That's the easiest way to. Get back in balance or at least the fastest way and just write stuff down with pen and paper and write down what you want how you think you can get it what you're grateful for I mean we could go on and on but basically just ah, take a fast from all forms of Media. And put your cell phone away in the drawer turn it off and just get out the pen and paper and see what's there because you probably don't need to read any more books or watch any more videos you just need to organize what you already know and focus it down into something that's useful. 01:06:53.63 mikebledsoe Excellent. Love you too later. 01:06:56.80 Max Shank Thanks Mikey! Love you buddy later.
