Disappointment to a noble soul is like cold water to a burning metal. It strengthens, tempers, and intensifies but never destroys it. It has been said that life is a complicated path filled with a variety of events, both pleasant and challenging. Hence, it is often through adversity that we truly discover who we are and what we are capable of. Consequently, the challenges we have faced and the hardships that we overcame have shaped our character, resilience, and determination to strive for victory. Life circumstances sometimes happen differently than we want them to. It will often cause us to see our weaknesses and limitations. However, we must learn to embrace our failures and keep holding on to why we remain committed to our pursuits of success. As we continue chasing successes, we must never fear setbacks and mistakes. We must also seek guidance and help from others who have encountered the same situations that we might also be in.

Key Takeaways: "If you want to do something, you have to be smart and work hard for it." – Christian Beatty "My father didn't understand baseball. He wasn't even a baseball player. He was a football guy, but he understood the formula to success, and that was hard work." – Christian Beatty "I'm thankful for my parents being in my life because they were working together to provide. I saw the sacrifices which instilled me to continue to push past because their sacrifices became my 'Why.'" – Christian Beatty "Having a 'why' is essential to the development of any dream because it keeps you in the game when adversity sets in, when somebody screams in your face that you're not good enough when somebody leaves you off of the top list, and when somebody cuts you from a team. Your why is what's going to keep you in the race." – Christian Beatty "I believed that I was going to be a professional baseball player. I believed in it and wanted it, and I couldn't stop smelling it and tasting it every day. So, I continued to grow, continue to hone my skills." – Christian Beatty "The person that I am today is because of the adversity that set in when I got to real life." – Christian Beatty "You're going to be up, and you're going to be down, but you have to have that winner's mentality. You have to have that championship mentality to keep pushing through the hard parts." – Dr. Derrick Burgess "Vulnerability is the most relatable thing in the world." – Christian Beatty "Never be afraid of failure because, without failure, success becomes nearly impossible." – Christian Beatty "Once failure leaves, wisdom and experience are last." – Christian Beatty "Some of the most breakthrough stories in the world came at the moment of almost giving up. So, that means I have to run towards it because I'm tired of losing and I'm tired of waiting." – Christian Beatty "Don't chase the views; focus on consistency because what you're going to become in pursuit of it is way more valuable than its physical equivalent." – Christian Beatty "You'll be a fool to say that you're going to do it your way because how can you lead yourself to a place you've never been." – Christian Beatty "When you become an expert in something, that's when they're going to pay you top dollar." – Christian Beatty "If I wasn't good enough, wait until this next version. It became a proving ground not just for myself, but I'm going to prove everybody that counted me out wrong and everybody that believes in me right." – Christian Beatty "The moment that you realize that your life changed on a specific day, it's imperative that you start to celebrate that day just like you celebrate a birthday." – Christian Beatty "People can teach you how to throw a fastball, a curveball, they can teach you how to hit the ball, but at some point, you're going to need that mental toughness." – Christian Beatty "Paying for a lesson instead of paying for a bat." – Christian Beatty "Do yourself a favor and take the time to find your next dreams. When a person stops dreaming, they're dead. Dreams never stop; they change. That's what they do." – Christian Beatty "If you're a parent, I need you to prime that old diesel up and get that dream factory going again because your kids are watching you. Find something else that's going to motivate you and drive you because they're watching you whether they tell you or not; they're watching you." – Christian Beatty Connect with Christian "CJ" Beatty: Website: https://cjbeatty.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cjbeatty44/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/motivationalnuggets Twitter: https://twitter.com/cjbeatty44 YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/@motivationalnuggets/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/cjbeatty/ Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/2b58S7ZT8JzVscUiE3qu5y?si=A8NfTwvuSJCyJVIWQ-Lqlg&nd=1 Connect with Dr. Derrick Burgess: Website: https://www.drderrickthesportsdr.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drderrickthesportsdr/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TimeOut.SportsDr LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/derrick-burgess-72047b246/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHGDu1zT4K_X6PnYELu8weg Email: email@example.com This episode of TimeOut with the SportsDr. is produced by Podcast VAs Philippines - the team that helps podcasters effectively launch and manage their podcasts, so we don't have to.

The Connected Yoga Teacher Podcast 325: Stress of Teaching Yoga with Sarah Garden Description: There is a common misconception among non-yoga teachers that teaching yoga is stress-free. However, this is not true! Teaching yoga and running a yoga business can be extremely challenging and stressful and we need to be able to deal with it. Sarah Garden shares her experience from years working in the yoga industry. Sarah Garden is the Director of Bodhi Tree Yoga Therapy and the full time Pain Educator and Yoga Therapist at The Chronic Pain Clinic in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. Sarah has been actively working in the field of yoga therapy for over 20 years and taught classes across North America and on Yoga International. In this conversation, Sarah highlights the difference between practicing yoga and teaching yoga, and why teaching is so much more stressful than most people imagine it. She shares some of the symptoms you may notice if you are deregulated and her tips on how to incorporate your personal practice back into your life as a yoga teacher.

[4:35] What does Sarah do? [6:17] Sarah shares a little about her experience as possibly the first yoga therapist in Saskatchewan. [8:48] Being a yoga teacher and running a yoga studio is tough. What keeps Sarah going? [14:20] There's an assumption that teaching yoga will be just as relaxing and calming as practicing it, but that's not the case. Why is teaching yoga so different from practicing yoga? [19:32] We need yoga in order to keep teaching yoga but it can be hard to fit in your own personal practice around your teaching schedule. [20:44] Shannon pops in with a shout out of thanks to sponsor, OfferingTree. [23:15] What is Sarah's advice to yoga teachers who have fallen away from their own practice and think they can't fit it in on top of all the other demands of being a yoga teacher? [25:14] What are some symptoms of a deregulated nervous system? [30:43] It may not be easy to tell when you are regulated or deregulated. Sarah shares some advice on how to discover that self-awareness. [37:05] Sarah shares a quick check in that you can do to assess how regulated you are.

Quotes from this episode: "It's not just like the work that I do going in to teach the class, but it's all this preparation." "The way the yoga industry runs is it's hard to make a living as a yoga teacher. You have to teach a lot." "Full-time teaching isn't often financially sustainable, nor is it energetically sustainable. And so, what do we do to do that? I think we have to fall back on our own practice." "Checking in with body tension patterns is a really nice way to notice if you're feeling deregulated, [and] checking in with your emotional regulations." "Relaxation or finding greater ease in your body isn't a process of addition, it's always a process of subtraction. We're doing work that we don't need to be doing."

In this episode, Fanzo discusses his journey of understanding the nuances and cultural relevance of meme cryptocurrencies. He talks about the rise of meme coins like Shiba Inu and Dogecoin, and admits his initial misunderstanding about the Pepe coin, a cryptocurrency named after the Pepe the Frog meme. Fanzo reveals how he initially dismissed the Pepe coin due to its controversial history, but after a deep dive into the community and its motivations, he had a change of heart. He describes how he found a sense of shared identity and representation within the Pepe community. Fanzo's newfound understanding of the coin led him to watch a documentary about the original artist of Pepe, Matt Fury. He highly recommends this documentary titled "Feels Good Man" for anyone in the web 3.0 and NFT space as it provides insights into the digital world, art ownership, and the power of community. Fanzo stresses the importance of conducting one's own research and understanding risk tolerance before venturing into cryptocurrency. He likens the cryptocurrency space to a casino, emphasizing that the connection, identity, and community in cryptocurrency surpass the speculative nature often associated with the stock market. Finally, he discusses the potential intersection of NFTs and tokens, arguing that they can share in value, ownership, and execution. He refers to the ADHD coin he launched and the Winn Mint team's tokens as examples of this model in action. Key Takeaways: 1. The importance of understanding the cultural relevance and community behind meme coins. 2. How cryptocurrencies can provide shared identity and representation for its holders. 3. The recommendation of the documentary "Feels Good Man" for a better understanding of the digital art space. 4. The need for individual research and risk evaluation in the crypto space. 5. The potential of tokens and NFTs to collaborate and create shared value. Disclaimer: This episode is not financial advice. Always do your own research and understand your own risk tolerance before investing in any tokens or NFTs.

Drew Manning, the "Fit2Fat2Fit Guy," experienced a unique transformation journey after gaining 75 pounds in 2011. Drew explains his story with Dr. Brian, including how he stopped exercising and ate a standard American diet to gain weight. Drew shares his knowledge of the complex factors influencing weight loss and health change, such as hormones, mental and emotional factors, and food addiction. He also talks about the disconnect between himself and his clients before the experiment due to his never being overweight and how that changed when he completed the Fit2Fat2Fit experiment. Lessons Learned From Drew's Fit2Fat2Fit Experience Drew experienced first-hand how powerful emotional eating can be. Food is the most accessible drug in the United States because it gives us a dopamine hit. Our brains crave more of that dopamine hit, so we eat more. This dopamine hit is why it is so hard for people to get off processed foods and onto healthier options. It is like going through withdrawal symptoms.Drew faced cravings but stayed on track with his transformation plan thanks to accountability and motivation from followers. He also learned that transformation involves mental and emotional aspects, addressing food addiction, self-sabotage, nutrient processing, genetics, and hormone balance. Despite the complexity, with motivation and accountability, he achieved a healthier life.Health and Your Relationship With FoodGenetics can impact our relationship with food. Emotional attachments formed in childhood, such as associating ice cream with rewards, can lead to reaching for it during emotional moments. It's crucial to be aware of our eating patterns and behaviors, considering how genetics influence our relationship with food. With motivation and support, making the necessary changes for a healthier life is achievable.Weight Loss Is Highly Individualized Despite genetic influences on our relationship with food, it's possible to achieve a healthier life. Understanding our own food patterns is crucial. Comparing ourselves to online influencers and expecting their results is unrealistic.

Stop selling services and start selling stacks. You need to stack your value.” – Joshua Latimer Topics Covered 00:12 – “If you don't know who he is, you will. He drops mind-bombs, and he has this way of creating proprietary language when he speaks.” Introducing today's awesome guest, Joshua Latimer, while talking about the stages of businesses 05:45 – “I sold it because it's not the greatest business model in the world; it's just not. It's a perfect training wheels business.” In spite of the fact that his service business was thriving at the time, Josh explains why he sold it. 12:09 – “You want your pricing to actually reflect the future version of your company.” We talk about the typical EBITDA of a 1.5 million dollar company, along with tips for getting a multiple of four to five at the exit. 17:36 – “Price objections are a derivative of expectation.” If you get price objections when you are growing your business, how can you change the outcome? 30:36 – “Instead of trying to get money, there are four things you should try to obsess about the goal of getting instead of money that automatically give you money. So if you get these four things, money will happen to you. Is money the only thing you should focus on? If you want to succeed and think about how to get money, Josh recommends having these four qualities. This is what he refers to as success derivatives, which will help you achieve victory. Key Takeaways “For a lot of people, the service business is where they learn business…but what you'll also learn as you eventually have success with your service company is that it's not the greatest business model ever. I'm not disparaging it; it's just not.” “If you think that you have to be the cheapest, well, you're literally destined to just struggle, and it's going to be harder for you.” “Stop selling services and start selling stacks. You need to stack your value…Money is the byproduct of being a value creator in the marketplace, for your customers, and for your employees. Money happens automatically when you're a person of value and enthusiasm.” “You got to stop trying to get money to make a lot of money.” Connect with Joshua Latimer YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/@JoshuaLatimer Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/people/Joshua-Latimer/100006782565455/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/meetjoshlatimer/ Connect with Keith Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thelandscapingemployeetrap Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/keithkalfas/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/@keith-kalfas Website: https://www.keithkalfas.com/ Resources/People Mentioned: My Website: https://www.keithkalfas.com/ Brian Haggerty: https://www.linkedin.com/in/bchaggerty/ Tommy Mello: https://homeserviceexpert.com/ Ballard: https://www.ballard-inc.com/ Jill's Office: https://www.keithkalfas.com/blog/jillsoffice

In Episode 313 of Hidden Forces, Demetri Kofinas speaks with Bob Elliott, the co-founder and CEO of Unlimited, a financial services firm that uses machine learning to create products that replicate the index returns of alternative investments. Demetri asked Bob onto the podcast to help sort through the noise of this latest financial news cycle as it pertains to the debt ceiling debate, regional bank stocks, the Fed's fight against inflation, and where we find ourselves in the economic cycle. Many have been surprised by how long it's taken for an economic recession to materialize given the speed and extent of the Federal Reserve's rate rises. Demetri and Bob discuss what might explain this and what it means for investors if supply-side factors to the economy make combating inflation difficult for the Fed to do without undermining the economy's ability to supply the capital needed ameliorate it. This episode is an excellent overview of where we find ourselves today and provides an especially useful framework for thinking about the important issues facing the economy and markets over the next six months to twelve months.

In this episode Christy discussed: Why you should let go of shame and guilt Being happier by releasing judgment Releasing the guilt through innocence Key Takeaways: Instead of making yourself feel guilty, let yourself feel appreciation. When you don't let go of your own shame or guilt, you might end up making others feel that way. Neutrality releases judgment. You've got to release judgment and be compassionate. When you accept that it's okay for people to be different, then you'll be happier since you'll find that your happiness doesn't hinge on whether people will change according to what you think is right or not. The opposite of guilt is innocence and focusing on the innocence of your intention is powerful in releasing guilt. Ask yourself if you've ever wanted to deliberately hurt or harm anyone, if the answer is no then focus on that innocence in order to release the guilt. “We can't change anything outside of ourselves. We can't change another person. We can influence them, and then they still have choices and how they react or respond. But the thing is, we have a choice as to if we are going to allow shame or guilt to be put on us.” - Christy Whitman Get The Desire Factor Book at https://thedesirefactor.com/ Connect with Christy Whitman: Website: https://www.christywhitman.com/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChhSCDQ_U3cYtCejM9DSVJw LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/christywhitman1/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/christywhitmaninternational/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/ChristyWhitman Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/christywhitman1 Audio production by Turnkey Podcast Productions.

When we first started dating, Jeremiah was still struggling with addiction. But we both knew that we had found our person, so there was no other option than to support each other no matter what. And we gave each other the space to have our own lives while we dated, affording ourselves the autonomy we needed through our late teens and early 20s. Last week on the podcast, we began the story of us, explaining how we met and found a safe place in each other as friends despite very different upbringings. On this episode of Destined to Be, we discuss how we started dating when Jeremiah was three months sober from his third rehab and describe some of the volatile moments early on in our relationship. We share our intuitive knowing that we would be together for the long term and how that made us choose each other through Jeremiah's relapses. Listen in for insight on the soul level of trust we share—and how it helped Jeremiah get sober once and for all—and learn how to hold space for your partner as you make the deep internal shifts that will take you both to the next level! Key Takeaways How they started dating when Jeremiah was 3 months sober from his third rehab and some of the volatile moments they had early in the relationship Why Mallory didn't realize Jeremiah had relapsed 5 months into their relationship and how they grew close during that time Mallory and Jeremiah's intuitive knowing that they would be together for the long term Why Mallory's parents made her choose between dating Jeremiah or living with them What caused the conflict between Mallory and Jeremiah's parents shortly before his fifth trip to rehab How Jeremiah and Mallory gave each other the space to have their own lives while they were dating (and why that was invaluable to Jeremiah's sobriety) The soul level of trust Mallory and Jeremiah share and where it comes from What allows Jeremiah and Mallory to accept and love each other for who they are How Jeremiah and Mallory hold space for each other to make the deep internal shifts that will take them to the next level Connect with Jeremiah & Mallory Destined to Be Podcast Destined to Be on Instagram Jeremiah on Instagram Mallory on Instagram Level Up Entourage Facebook Group Text VIP to 586-600-8492 Resources Power vs. Force by David R.

SHOW NOTES: Today we are revisiting our talk with Roger Beasley about Customer Modes, the mindsets and behaviors that help people get jobs done. We look at what they are and how they work through the lens of the restaurant industry. Tune in to learn how modes thinking has the key to unlock experience strategy and journey work in powerful new ways. IN THIS EPISODE: ● [1:35] Introduction to Roger Beasley ● [3:37] What are modes, jobs, ques, and how do they work together? ● [8:39] How to connect the brand to the consumer. ● [12:13] Roger talks about how technology shifted the mode people are in and how the restaurant chains need to shift their focus. ● [17:50] We discuss the top modes found in restaurant customers and how they relate to the different channels. ● [21:50] How the rise of virtual brands came about (DoorDash, UberEats, etc.) ● [28:25] The need to customize your brand with the situation of why people will order. ● [31:46] The different requirements for different channels/modes, moving away from loyalty programs. KEY TAKEAWAYS: ● People no longer order from restaurants because they like that specific restaurant's food; they are ordering based on the mode they are in - productivity, relaxing, etc. ● With the creation and use of UberEats and DoorDash, the people ordering the food are not the restaurant's customers; they are the customers of third-party brands. So it's essential to create a new brand to draw customers back to your restaurant.

Do you need a long-term solution to weight loss? Obesity has become an epidemic, and many women are now using peptide diabetic medications to help them start their weight loss journey. Today on Menopause Mastery, we discuss the efficacy of using diabetic medications as a weight loss remedy with Dr. Amie Hornaman. She is the host of The Thyroid Fixer podcast and founder of the Institute for Thyroid and Hormone Optimization; Dr. Hornaman is the premier authority on balancing hormones and is helping thousands of women reclaim their health. In this episode, she breaks down the positive and negative side effects of drugs like Mounjaro, Metformin, and other peptide-based medications. Peptides intended for diabetics have the indirect effect of appetite reduction and can slow digestion so that you feel full longer. They have become a popular tool to help women shift their eating habits and quickly lose weight when other diets have failed. However, Dr. Hornaman warns of the unintended consequences when patients use these medications as a crutch without making any lifestyle changes. If used properly, these medications can potentially have anti-aging effects and help you quickly shift to a healthy weight. The problem is women think they can use these medications for a short time to lose weight fast, but Dr. Hornaman warns that if used this way, you will put on weight as quickly as you lost it. If you're struggling to maintain a healthy weight, tune in to learn how you can use peptides to bio-hack your weight loss. Key Takeaways: [3:00] The Real Skinny on Weight Loss Medications [5:20] The Popularity of Mounjaro for Non-Diabetics [12:00] Not a Crutch but a Short-Term Bio-Hack [17:00] The Rebound Hunger [23:00] The Benefits of Glucagon Itself [31:00] Off-Label Uses of Peptides [35:00] The Negative Side Effects [37:00] The Risk of Lean Muscle Loss Memorable Quotes: “You cannot use it as a crutch. I see it as a more of a short-term bio-hack that may be able to be utilized in a different way, spaced out, as a kind of a maintenance dose.” [12:40] -Dr.Hornaman “The rebound hunger was like nothing I ever experienced. It was insatiable hunger that came back on, so of course, the concern is; am I going to gain the weight back? if this is truly reducing my appetite.” [17:00] -Dr.Hornaman “If you are going to use this as a true long-term, weight loss, health benefits tool, you have to force the food, specifically the protein, and I don't want to hear the excuse that you're not hungry.” [45:35] -Dr. Hornaman Resources DrAmieHoraman.com Instagram Website Living Well Dallas Hormone Reset Betty Murray Socials Facebook Instagram
Linguistics professor, Valerie Fridland, explores the evolution of language and offers insights on how we can use it more effectively in the workplace. From the use of filled pauses and uptalk to the gender-based biases that affect language perception, Valerie provides a fascinating look at the role of language in our lives. Also discussed are the benefits of embracing language evolution, and how it can improve communication and connection in our personal and professional lives. Key Takeaways [01:11] Valerie Fridland, a linguistics professor and author of "Like, literally, Dude: Arguing For Good In Bad English," challenges the notion of "correct" language and encourages us to embrace language evolution. Her personal experience as a parent highlights the importance of understanding language in the real world. [03:51] Valerie talks about speech patterns and language usage, including uptalk and discourse markers. People have specific likes and dislikes when it comes to language, including certain words or phrases that they find annoying or grating. However, many of these preferences are actually based on regional dialects or historical linguistic changes and may not be as important or incorrect as people think. [14:38] Valerie talks about how filled pauses, such as "ums" and "uhs," which are typically considered to be bad public speaking habits, are actually beneficial for speakers and listeners. [20:10] Men and women process language similarly, but societal expectations and cultural models can influence the types of language they prefer. Young women are often the initiators and spreaders of language change. Different linguistic styles exist, but it's not about gender, it's about individual preference and social roles. [25:14] Valerie also discusses the differences in language and style between generations, genders, and ethnic groups, and how these differences can affect communication in the workplace. While it's okay to have a preferred style of communication, it's also important to come to a compromise and be open to new ideas. [35:19] Tips from Valerie that we can implement to make our workplaces more inclusive of everyone linguistically. Leaders should be aware of their own language biases and avoid making assumptions based on linguistic characteristics such as voice pitch or discourse markers. By being more inclusive of diverse linguistic styles, leaders can create a more welcoming and productive workplace for everyone. [39:19] While social media and other forms of communication may be disseminating information faster than ever before, the actual changes in language are relatively slow compared to historical changes. Additionally, Valerie discusses and gives examples of how the speed at which we speak and the perceived charisma of a speaker is a complex interplay of various factors, including speech rate, pitch, intonation patterns, and the use of vocal fry. Varying the tempo and intonational variability can contribute to charismatic speech. [47:04] Closing quote: Remember, slang is a language that rolls up its sleeves, spits on its hands, and goes to work. — Carl Sandberg Quotable Quotes "Language is a window into our minds and how our minds work." "Language is constantly changing and evolving, and it's a really fascinating thing to study." "We can learn a lot about our society and how we view things through our language." "The social beliefs we have about language and the linguistic reality are completely opposite." "Filled pauses, or 'UMS' and 'UZ,' are actually a superpower for speakers and listeners." "UMS are signals of hard cognitive effort, and they help us process complex information." "UMS also signals to listeners that we're not done speaking and helps with turn-taking." "Language is a tool that we use to convey our thoughts and emotions, and it's important to understand how it works." "Language is not just about communication, it's also about identity and how we perceive ourselves and others." "Candor has to be in different contexts for different reasons." “Language is fun, and amazing. Language is a connection and communication. And sometimes we forget that we're not there to be perfect speakers, we're there to be connected speakers. So focus on connection and communication. You can't go wrong.” “Slang is a language that rolls up its sleeves, spits on its hands, and goes to work.” Carl Sandberg Resources Mentioned The Leadership Podcast | theleadershippodcast.com Sponsored by | www.darley.com Rafti Advisors.

Future Generations Podcast with Dr. Stanton Hom
Many concerns need to be tackled as we deal with the aftermath of the pandemic, including the state of our society and country. The Democratic Party has deviated from American values and has become the party of big pharma and censorship. In recent memory, America has never been more divided. Today, we are fortunate to have our special guest Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an American environmental lawyer, and 2024 Democratic Party Presidential Candidate. He uses his voice to inform the American people of the country's failings, and to reunite the nation back to its' foundational values. Please take a moment to listen to this episode as he discusses his plans as president, and the need to stop censorship and corruption in the government. Don't miss this episode! Quotes: “The government shouldn't practice censorship. It is a First Amendment violation. And I'll create an executive order that prohibits all government departments from influencing public opinion or suppressing the American people by sending a memo on the first day of my administration.” - Robert F. Kennedy Jr. “When Pfizer gives you a million dollars, they're not doing it out of philanthropic impulses. They're doing it because they expect to get something in return.” - Robert F. Kennedy Jr. “In a world where rewarding the rich and punishing the poor, this nation has evolved into a form of cushy socialism for wealthy people in this cruel, ruthless capitalism for the country's middle class and poor. And that needs to end.” - Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Key Takeaways: When government officials order private entities to silence dissenting voices, they are in violation of the First Amendment because the government is engaging in censorship. They're not allowed to do that, which shouldn't be tolerated in the government. Big companies give money to the government not because they have any altruistic motives but because they want to purchase access, and they want to purchase action from the government that is often detrimental to the public interest. That's why it's important to keep corporate money out of the government. Wealthier people have more societal comfort and privileges than the middle class and the poor. They become entitled, believing they are superior to everyone else. But it must stop now because everyone deserves to be treated well, including those who are middle-class and poor. Highlights/Timeline: [05:35] Background of Robert's inspiration and what catalyzed him into a presidential candidacy [11:31] How does Robert aim to tackle censorship? [16:13] How Robert reclaims the public's trust in the government [38:32] Bobby's story of how he became interested in the environment [49:05] Bobby's first public live event in San Diego [51:00] Making a healthy generation of American Children Conclusion: As a nation, we must ensure that these large aggregations of power are not damaging our nation, our democracy, and the free flow of information. Despite being the richest nation in the world, the United States also has many people suffering from chronic diseases. No country in the world spends more on healthcare than we do, and yet we have the second largest population with the lowest health outcomes. This is unacceptable - we need to do better. America has never been more divided. The fundamental issue is how polarized both sides have become. A divided society cannot fend off exploitation or totalitarian takeover. The traditional American can-do spirit wears down in these never-ending battles. So let's bridge the gap and unite American citizens. Future Generations is proud to host a historic event for the city of San Diego during Memorial Day Weekend. Be a part of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.'s first public event since announcing his candidacy for President of the United States.

Creating Wealth Real Estate Investing with Jason Hartman
In Episode 2,000 of the podcast, host Jason Hartman reflects on the power of the human mind. He considers having a famous guest for the special episode but decides to focus on the most powerful asset available to everyone—the mind. He shares his fascination with the mind since his school days and the influence of mentors like Dennis Whateley, Zig Ziglar, Jim Rohn, and Earl Nightingale. Jason emphasizes the incredible things that can be achieved with the mind, including the placebo effect and psychosomatic medicine. He expresses gratitude to his listeners and vows to continue sharing valuable content for years to come. He then discusses the power of the subconscious mind and the importance of managing one's mindset. They highlight the flaw in the subconscious mind, which is its inability to differentiate between reality and vividly imagined scenarios. This flaw can be hacked and used to one's advantage by visualizing desired outcomes with sensory-specific detail. He emphasizes the significance of visualization and the ability to create one's own future through the power of the mind. He also mentions the potential applications of visualization in real estate investing and touches on the topics of worries, beliefs, and the impact of expectations on one's reality. He posits that the brain is not just a processor, but a generator, and that thinking is actually quite energy intensive. Jason encourages listeners to explore guided visualizations to create their own future and hone their investing skills.

How much time per day do you sunbathe? In this episode of The Darin Olien Show, I chat with Robby Besner about how disconnected we are from nature and how much of today's chronic illnesses are due to it. While most of us live a life where we can't completely cut off EMFs from our lives nor live outdoors, there is a solution to reconnecting with our balanced and natural energetic fields: infrared light therapy. Infrared light therapy involves the use of low-level light in the infrared spectrum to promote healing and provide various therapeutic benefits. While the effectiveness and specific applications of infrared light therapy may vary, some potential benefits include pain relief, improved circulation, reduced inflammation, enhanced immune function, enhanced tissue repair, and stress reduction. Robby Besner, PSc.D, is recognized as the leader in integrated infrared technology. Rob has always been an advocate of natural health and wellness. After many years of illness, Mr. Besner's teenage daughter was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. This began his mission to find alternative, holistic and homeopathic avenues of treatment. He discovered the natural healing effects of Infrared frequencies and began developing specialized devices and applications to help his daughter, and others, with similar health challenges. What we discuss: 06:13: How was Therasage born? 23:48: What is infrared? 33:35: What are EMFs doing to our health? 38:48: How did Robby package up the healing benefits of sunlight? 48:22: What are PMFs? 56:37: Are we asking the question “why” enough? 01:02:19: How does Robby determine what's the next product they will develop? 01:06:58: Where can you learn more about Robby? Key Takeaways: Infrared light therapy involves the use of low-level light in the infrared spectrum to promote healing and provide various therapeutic benefits. While the effectiveness and specific applications of infrared light therapy may vary, some potential benefits include pain relief, improved circulation, reduced inflammation, enhanced immune function, enhanced tissue repair, and stress reduction. Due to the over-usage of electronics that emit EMFs in our day-to-day, our bodies' energetic charge is unbalanced. We have too many positive charges and not enough negative charges. This can cause all types of health problems, particularly chronic illnesses. While the solution to rebalancing these charges is simple - i.e. grounding ourselves and spending time in nature, it's not something we can easily or realistically do all the time in today's modern world. Thus, the importance of both limiting exposure to EMFs and doing infrared light therapy. Most Americans don't spend enough time absorbing rays. This means that while your skin is safe from sun damage one can incur from over-exposure to UV rays, you're also missing out on the benefits you can only get from sunlight such as visible light and infrared (IR) rays. Visible light is the portion of the electromagnetic spectrum that is visible to the human eye. It's important to expose yourself to it as it helps regulate the body's circadian rhythm and has a positive impact on mood and overall well-being. As for infrared rays, these have longer wavelengths than visible light and are often felt as heat. They can penetrate the skin more deeply than UV rays and has proven benefits in pain relief, tissue repair, and improved circulation.

In Episode 312 of Hidden Forces, Demetri Kofians speaks with Jean Twenge, a researcher and professor of psychology who has written extensively about generational differences. Jean Twenge explains what we know about every generation born since 1925, arguing that the strongest candidate for explaining generational change is advancements in technology. Twenge spends the first hour discussing what we know about changes in fertility rates, political affiliation, income, wealth, sexuality, gender norms, attitudes toward life, mental health, and much more. The episode's second hour is devoted to understanding Millennials and Generation Z. Jean and Demetri discuss how each of these generations is unique, what explains these differences, and what can be extrapolated about future economic, political, and other sociological trends by looking at the data. This conversation is relevant to anyone, whether you work in politics, manage money, or are trying to identify future economic opportunities informed by changes in consumer behavior.

The Mindvalley Podcast with Vishen Lakhiani
What if I told you that you were living in an illusion? Today we question the nature of reality with Dr. Srikumar Rao, author of Modern Wisdom, Ancient Roots; he is a groundbreaking business coach and speaker who taps into ancient concepts that are still relevant to post-industrial society. This timeless wisdom will wake you from the illusion of dissatisfaction and desire. In this episode, Dr. Rao shares three powerful ideas that will shift your perception of reality and help unlock your capacity for joy. Happiness does not depend on anything; Dr.Rao points out that the idea that your joy hinges on your accomplishments is the illusion of want. You are chasing a feeling that you think will set you free, but the bigger house, the better job, and more money are not what will bring you joy because you can tap into eternal bliss under any conditions. He explains the Hindu concept of Ānanda, the state of being which allows you to let go of your earthly attachments and achieve eternal bliss. Ānanda is your natural state of being because the universe is benevolent, and everything you experience is neither good nor bad, so you do not need to chase anything. Everything in your life is as it should be and is designed specifically for your growth and fulfillment. Dr. Rao demystifies the mindset necessary to unlock eternal bliss. Join us to recognize the illusion you're living in so that you can set yourself free from it and experience the beauty of life as it unfolds before you.

Transitions can be challenging for any organization, especially when managing relationships during the succession or sale of an advisory firm. However, as advisors shift to an independent wealth advisory business model due to its unconflicted nature and ability to provide valuable services to clients, mergers, acquisitions, and partnerships are becoming more prevalent. What factors do owners need to understand when selling their business, and how can they navigate the challenges that come with the transition? In this episode, Steve talks with Justin Ferri, President at Buckingham Wealth Partners. Before joining Buckingham, Justin was a managing director of Focus Financial Partners, responsible for business development and acquisition activities with an emphasis on identifying and partnering with top advisors and independent RIA firms. Today, Justin focuses on forward-looking strategies, vision, and growth for Buckingham's advisory teams and client experiences. He is proficient in building growth-oriented businesses, focusing on recruiting, motivating, and leading highly creative and productive teams. A seasoned financial services executive with extensive management and leadership experience, Justin talks with Steve about managing relationships during times of transition. He also shares the decision points when considering succession or sale of an advisory firm, what influences valuation and how potential sellers can maximize their value, and how leaders can navigate the challenges of business transitions.

[41:56] - The things that keep Justin motivated and excited in his personal and professional life. Quotes [05:03] - "The business model that is used by many large investment banks on Wall Street was highly conflicted. That ultimately made my decision to shift and focus the next chapter of my career entirely on the independent wealth advisory community." ~ Justin Ferri [12:15] - "There are 15 to 17,000 independent wealth advisory firms across the U.S. Even though we have a record number of partnerships and mergers and acquisitions happening year after year, that number hasn't gone down. That is a testament to the strength of the independent business model and the value that it brings to clients every single year." ~ Justin Ferri [34:20] - "The only thing worse than providing bad advice is delivering great advice that's not acted upon. That comes down to trust, which is why the independent wealth advisor business model being unconflicted is the right way to provide service to clients." ~ Justin Ferri Links Justin Ferri on LinkedIn Justin Ferri on Twitter J.P.
