Personal Power is our ability to adapt, effectively, to the change in our life. It's our ability to persist in the face of challenges, maintain steady self-belief, and with confidence, meet each new day ready to realise our full potential. I believe that whenever we take on big, intimidating goals, we flex our personal power and it is what wakes us up to the possibilities available to us. A deep sense of personal power is the only thing that will allow you to notice and actually reach for the possibilities, and the more power you believe you have, the more awake and aware you're to the possibilities in life.  In this episode, I talk how and why we must keep alive our sense of personal power. If you feel limited by your circumstances, how inner power can help you overcome those restrictions and win despite the odds stacked against you. I share examples of people with lives that embody the value of personal power.    Shownotes : 00:40 - Introduction  1:00 - How power and possibilities impact each other 1:50 - What is personal power? 3:30 - Why no matter our reality, we all have immense power and the examples that prove it  5:13 - What is something you may have missed about all the success stories in the world 6:50 - What can we learn from the successes in the world and use to better our own lives 8:57 - What helped Victor Frankl survive his time in the Nazi concentration camp 11:35 - Rubin Carter's story and how it shows you how awesomely powerful our attitude and mindset can be  14:00 - What you can do to remind yourself of your power in difficult, heartbreaking circumstances  16:20 - The importance of your story and how it can create change   Resources -  Book an Empowerment Audit - https://www.kratimehra.com/work-with-me/ On Her Terms Facebook Group and other details - https://www.kratimehra.com/on-her-terms-podcast/ Man's Search For Meaning by Victor E.

Sean Illing talks with author Ryan Holiday about Stoicism — a philosophy with roots in ancient Greece and which flourished in early imperial Rome — and how it can help us live fulfilling lives today. In addition to explaining what Stoicism is and how we can practice it, Holiday addresses the critical idea that Stoicism is a philosophy for elites, unpacks some of the parallels between Stoicism and Buddhism, and explains how being in touch with our mortality can relieve some of our modern anxieties.

Each episode will focus on a philosophical figure or school of thought from the past, and discuss how their ideas can help us make sense of our modern world and lives today.

"There is nothing either good or bad, only thinking makes it so"One thing that is clear right now is that times are tough for many people. There is the cost of living, inflation, strikes, a war in Europe… the list goes on.

My guest is Ryan Holiday, author of numerous books on stoicism including the superb the Obstacle is the Way.

The Second Phase Podcast - Personal Branding & Brand Marketing and Life Strategies for Success for Female Entrepreneurs

Life and business, especially as entrepreneurs, can be full of challenges that get in our way and prevent us from achieving our goals and dreams. But you don't have to see challenges as limiting obstacles. You can see obstacles as opportunities. It's a matter of choosing your thoughts and perceptions of the challenges. Common challenges that are often viewed as obstacles In order to view obstacles as opportunities, you first have to identify the challenges your brain believes are obstacles. Because of negativity bias, our brains are 2/3 more likely to look for the negative in every circumstance or experience. Changing your perception and seeing obstacles as opportunities is key to discovering joy, and living peacefully with purpose. Here is a short list of challenges that may be seen as obstacles instead of opportunities. Challenges viewed as obstacles Sales calls The success of your business is on the other side of the sales call. False. And if you go into a sales call with this belief, you are likely to lose the client. If you have this perspective of a sales call, your brain will see the call as an obstacle, not an opportunity. The reality is that a sales call is your opportunity to serve the person interested in your service. The success of your business is not dependent on the outcome of the sales call. Think of the hummingbird effect, if one hummingbird is at your feeder, there are likely 10 more in the area waiting to visit the feeder. If you do not convert the person to a paying client on the sales call, you can learn from the experience. Instead of looking at the call as an obstacle see it as an opportunity for growth. How can you learn from the experience of a sales call? After each sales call, do an evaluation of the call. Not "oh that went well" or "that didn't go well", but a deep dive into the call. For example: Did you get to know about the problem the prospective client has? Were there objections about hiring you and did you effectively address them? Money and time are the most frequent objections. Always be prepared to address them. What could you have done differently to change the outcome of the call? Did you follow your process for handling the call? Do you have an automated system in place for onboarding clients if the sales call goes according to plan so that you aren't frantic about time should the client convert? You can see obstacles as opportunities if you continually monitor your perception of situations such as sales calls. You can choose to see sales calls as challenges, or you can learn from each one and see them as opportunities for growth. A bad review or testimonial What is your perspective on a bad review? Because of negativity bias, your brain is automatically going to think that the bad review is going to be the demise of your business, an obstacle to your success. If you receive a bad review, how can you look at it from the perspective of obstacles as opportunities? You can use the perceived obstacle as an opportunity to learn something about yourself and your business. Choose to respond to the review in a kind, generous, graceful way that demonstrates to anyone reading the response that you are a great person and capable of helping others that come your way. Don't take it personally. Chances are that the person who wrote the testimonial is unhappy and didn't put the work in that you recommended and therefore didn't achieve the results they wanted. You cannot control what other people think and say, but you can control your reaction, response, and perception. Likewise, you can use the bad review as content. Explain why you do what you do and how you do it. Maybe that person wasn't your soulmate client and now you have an opportunity to talk about why you only work with certain people, to ensure they are a good fit for you and your service. Similarly, this is a great time to evaluate your processes and messaging to ensure you attract the right people and serve them to the best of your ability. If you receive a bad review, was there a breakdown someplace in your business? Discover what it was and how you can fix it to ensure this doesn't happen again. Seeing obstacles as opportunities is the only mindset to have in this situation or you will become afraid, start procrastinating, and get stuck in a negative mindset that will hold you back from any future success. Someone betrays you, personally or professionally Who hasn't experienced this at least once in their life? Betrayal is beyond a challenge, it becomes an obstacle to trust and future involvement with the person. But betrayal does not have to be an obstacle that holds you back from future relationships or from trusting again. Things don't happen to you, they happen for you. I truly believe this. If someone betrays you, you have an opportunity to reevaluate who you let into your life (or business), who you trust, and the extent of a relationship you develop with people in the future. Being betrayed may help you see people in a new light going forward. This one betrayal may save you from many betrayals down the road. Negativity bias is going to cause you to want to hold onto this betrayal, but you have the choice to perceive the situation as an opportunity to exercise forgiveness, give yourself grace, and move on to better, more meaningful relationships. Here is another blog post on approaching life from a positive perspective.  And another blog post on forgiveness to give you another perspective. The obstacles as opportunities mindset is key for personal and business relationships moving forward. You made a mistake, big or small Everyone makes mistakes but not everyone views mistakes as obstacles that are going to destroy their future. The most beautiful thing about our complex brains is that we can change our neural pathways. That means, if you choose to see obstacles as opportunities, you can shift negativity bias and become more productive and successful. Mistakes can be viewed as setbacks or opportunities to learn and grow. Often, mistakes are made so that we can see a new path, a better path, that will lead to even more opportunities than the path we were originally on. Some mistakes may seem detrimental and overbearing, but you get to choose how you perceive them. You have a choice to be disciplined in your thinking and to see mistakes as learning opportunities for self-improvement. I don't believe you will ever fail because of a mistake. As I said before, things happen for you, not to you. Every mistake you make is a learning opportunity so that you don't fail in the future. And even if something you did leads to a failure of sorts, it is still an opportunity for learning and growth and therefore cannot be viewed as a failure. What does this mean, to see obstacles as opportunities? It means that you are in control. How you react is in your control. The thoughts, feelings, and behaviors you choose in reaction to any of the aforementioned scenarios are in your control. How beautiful is it that you get to choose how you perceive every experience, interaction, circumstance, and relationship? It takes discipline to see obstacles as opportunities Because of negativity bias and the way our brain is hardwired to look for the negative, mindset work is imperative. The good news is that you have the power to choose to do the work necessary to change the neural pathways in your brain. Of course, the more you see obstacles as opportunities, the easier it will become, but it will always take work. Work that I refer to as action. So that you can get started doing the work sooner than later, I am going to recommend my RAG model and my 5 Cs of journaling method. When something happens in your life, like any of the above circumstances, recognize the negative thoughts and feelings you have. Catch them before you go into a downward spiral of negative actions or behaviors. Then, address them by challenging them. Are your thoughts rational? Would someone you love and respect be thinking the same way? Are you being realistic or are you overdramatizing the situation? If the answer to any of these questions is no, then get rid of the thoughts by changing them. Change them to something positive. Make a list of positive alternative thoughts. The more your practice this and stay disciplined to taking action when negative thoughts come into play, the more quickly you will be able to gain control of your thoughts. With control comes confidence. This means, that you will soon be on your way to seeing all, or at least most, obstacles as opportunities. Use these scripture verses as affirmations or mantras when feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, or stressed about challenges in your life and business Philippians 4:13 "I can do anything through Him who gives me strength." Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for your, says the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." My inspiration for this post came from The Obstacle is the Way, by Ryan Holiday.

#120: Spiritual 7 Morning Routine

Positive Impact

It's okay to not be okay. May is mental health awareness month, so I want to shine some light on mental health and the stigma that surrounds it. I create a morning routine with all my clients so they can start each day with structure and discipline. Our body loves routine. I've created a spiritual seven that I include in my and my clients' morning routines to help with mental health. It's really simple: 1. Pray. The first thing I do is say a simple prayer: “God, Higher Power, Universe, Spirit, help me be in the right place at the right time, doing the right things with the right people for the right reasons.” 2. Meditate. The simplest form of meditation is conscious breathing. Inhale through your nose for four seconds, hold your breath for a second, and exhale through your nose for four seconds. Repeat this for two to five minutes. 3. Read daily devotions. I read two daily devotions to get my mind in the right place. These are positive, uplifting devotionals. Two of my favorite books filled with these devotions are “The Daily Stoic” by Ryan Holiday and “A Year of Miracles” by Marianne Williamson. 4. Make a gratitude list. Where our attention goes, our energy flows. What we focus on gets stronger. When I look for things to be grateful for, I draw more gratitude into my life. Starting my day with this practice creates positive momentum and helps me see more things to be grateful for throughout the day. 5. Make my bed. Having less physical clutter creates less spiritual and emotional clutter in your head. It also fosters self-esteem and self-confidence 6. Have a mirror moment. I look at myself in the mirror, say, “I love you,” and give myself a high five. It changes the feel-good part of our brain; you can't be pissed off and give yourself a high five in the mirror. 7. Do mindful movement. This is some kind of physical exercise. That includes yoga, stretching, breath work, or even walking outside. All seven parts of this routine form a mind, body, and spirit transformation. Over time, these activities create a positive snowball of momentum. Small habits repeated over and over create big transformations. I never ask others to do what I'm not comfortable doing myself. I've been doing these seven things for years, and I know they work. Try it yourself, and know that I am here as a resource if you need it. You have trusted coaches, mentors, and friends to lean on for your mental health. I'm rooting for you, and if you need any support, feel free to call or email me. I would love to help.

He's best known for his writings on ancient stoic philosophy and its application for everyday life. The New York Times credited Ryan for the increasing popularity of stoicism.In this discussion, Ryan shares his thoughts and lessons learned about how he came to see what living a good life is for him. Questioning the things you give your time and energy over is the beginning for any of us that want to unpack what we're doing, who we're doing it for, and how it adds value with meaning to us. It's not enough to be a human doing any and everything without intention and clarity. Ryan points out that it's better to learn and practice what it is to just be a human “being.”If the day to day mindless actions of work, preparing dinner, and stressing over getting more clients to increase your revenue is part of your reality, then taking this time to thing through what the right goal is for your to focus on and what you want out of life may be the most important moment in your life thus far.SHOW NOTES:0:00 | Introduction to Ryan Holiday0:25 | How to Live A Good Life10:35 | Choosing The Right Goal 15:35 | What You Want Is What You Value21:42 | Time Between Stimulus and Response28:20 | Using Feedback Effectively34:26 | Check Your Ego for Success43:03 | Get Out of Your Way46:13 | Defining Success for RyanQUOTES:“We seem to have a limitless capacity to steal time from ourselves.” [2:49]“We protect our physical space much more than we protect our time, even though physical space can be regained and time can never be regained.” [3:15]“If you think that action is the end all be all, you end up doing action for the sake of doing action, [...] sometimes you're just supposed to just be.” [4:24]“It's this balance. Once you've arrived, the thing that got you there is now in some ways your worst enemy.” [8:18]“Where ego comes in is like we've got the things that impress other people, and then the real meaningful impact that we're trying to have.” [12:12]“What do people do with their money? They buy freedom, but oftentimes, they give up freedom to get money.

He was chaplain to the Confederate Army. • The “Lost Cause” and Confederate Monuments were establish to re-cast Confederate defeat as a moral victory. 1,747 monuments erected to honor defeated Confederate rebels and portray them as heroes, affirming white supremacy. • Anti-Critical Race Theory actions are another example of influencing thinking. People brand CRT as “Marxist” There is work to “sanitize” (re-write) history and ease “guilty” feelings. Critical Race Theory is an academic concept that is more than 40 years old.

Some Higher Thoughts (From The Obstacle Is the Way - by Ryan Holiday)   1. See the opportunity within your obstacle: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” 2. Failure shows us the way—by showing us what isn't the way. 3. Everything we do matters 4. Think progress, not perfection. 5. Can we see that this “problem” presents an opportunity for a solution that we have long been waiting for? 6. Nothing can ever prevent you from trying. Ever. 7. We don't get to choose what happens to us, but we can always choose how we feel about it P8. ersistence is an action. Perseverance is a matter of will. One is energy. The other, endurance.

279. Summary: Industrial Society and Its Future (The Unabomber Manifesto)

Love Your Work

Play Episode Listen Later May 19, 2022 16:59


Industrial Society and Its Future, is otherwise known as “The Unabomber Manifesto,” written by Ted Kaczynski. Kaczynsnki is a terrorist who killed three people, and injured twenty-three others, by sending bombs through the mail, between 1978 and 1995. He used his terror campaign to exploit the negativity bias of media and pressure the Washington Post and New York Times into publishing his 35,000-word anti-technology manifesto. Obviously, what Kaczynski did was horrible, but his manifesto is a thought-provoking, albeit extreme, perspective on technology. And so here is my summary of Industrial Society and Its Future. Leftism creeps towards totalitarianism The manifesto begins with a seemingly out-of-place rant about leftism creeping toward totalitarianism: According to Kaczynski, leftists have low self-esteem, are defeatist, and hate themselves. They hate success, and feel the groups they try to protect are inferior. They are overburdened by guilt over their natural drives, and so want to turn into issues of morality things that don't have anything to do with morality, such as policing the use of words to which they themselves have applied negative connotations. Anti-left is not far-right When people hear anti-leftism, they tend to assume the person with those views is far-right. But it's worth noting that's not Kaczynski's view. A quote, for example: [Leftists] want to preserve African American culture. But in what does this preservation of African American culture consist? It can hardly consist in anything more than eating black-style food, listening to black-style music, wearing black-style clothing and going to a black- style church or mosque. In other words, it can express itself only in superficial matters. In all ESSENTIAL respects most leftists of the oversocialized type want to make the black man conform to white, middle-class ideals. In sum, Kaczynski is anti-left, because ultimately leftists still work to preserve the industrial system. This appears to come out of “left-field,” but the meat of the manifesto is more coherent, and later we'll better understand why he brought up his views on leftism. Industrial society robs us of the “Power Process” As industrial society progresses, Kaczynski says, people lose more and more freedom. This makes them miserable, because it robs them of what he calls the “power process.” The power process consists of four main elements: A goal Effort put forth toward that goal The attainment of that goal Autonomy in pursuit of that goal To be happy, a person needs goals that require effort, a reasonable rate of success in achieving those goals, and personal control throughout that process. We replace the power process with “surrogate activities” You might think we, in industrial society, have many goals we pursue and attain through effort, but Kaczynski says we merely pursue what he calls “surrogate activities.” Surrogate activities are artificial goals, because they aren't for the purposes of meeting our basic biological needs, and so aren't totally fulfilling. He says we merely think surrogate activities, such as our jobs, are fulfilling, because we have to do very little in industrial society to meet our basic biological needs – such as eating, or having shelter. So, we've never felt true fulfillment. All we do is either easy or impossible He says there are three kinds of drives we experience in the pursuit of goals: 1) minimal effort, 2) serious effort and 3) impossible. The power process, he says, is more about group two, or serious effort. Our surrogate activities require minimal effort. But at the same time, many other things are impossible in industrial society, because we don't have control over them. For example, our security depends upon decisions made by others, such as safety standards at a nuclear power plant, how much pesticide is in our foods, and how much pollution is in our air. Somebody else makes these decisions for us, and in many cases we can't even know if what we're being told is true. As technology grants freedoms, it takes them away He points out that technology seems to grant us freedoms, but it really takes them away. As each advance in technology is collectively accepted, we lose control in some new area. Cars have become so ubiquitous you can't walk in many places. So you need to get further integrated into the industrial system by getting a drivers' license, insurance, and registration. Or, you can take the bus and have even less freedom. As we're increasingly able to alter our genes, it will become harder to enforce a code of ethics. First, genetic engineering will be used to treat genetic diseases, then further alterations will be seen as “good.” The upper class will decide what's good or not, until we have a genetically-engineered upper class, and a distantly-lower class taking genetic rolls of the dice. (This is already happening, as gene splicing is being used to treat diseases such as sickle-cell anemia, meanwhile a scientist in China crossed the agreed-upon ethics line and genetically-engineered children.) We'll outsource decisions to computers, until we no longer understand ourselves the decisions the computers are making. So we'll keep them running to keep the system afloat. At that point, the machines will be in control. Kaczynski thinks mood-altering drugs are over-prescribed, often just to deal with the psychological stress of living in industrial society. If more people need, say, antidepressants to tolerate living in a depressing world, that world is then allowed to get even more depressing, until the drugs are a requirement. (This reminds me of the soma everyone in modern society takes in the dystopian science-fiction book, Brave New World. That book has also been made into a series.) My thoughts: Coronavirus and the power process I couldn't help but think about this loss of control Kaczynski describes as I watched people's behavior during the coronavirus pandemic. While I personally chose to follow protocols and get a vaccine, it was an interesting moment when industrial society clashed with individual autonomy. To sustain industrial society – which is so ubiquitous it's impossible to “opt-out” – institutions deemed it necessary to make blanket decisions on the behalf of individuals. Some people weren't cool with that. Whether their reasoning made logical sense was irrelevant – the emotional roots of their reactions were understandable. Industrial society and the gig economy One thought-provoking quote from the manifesto sounds like a prediction of the gig economy. It has been suggested, for example, that a great development of the service industries might provide work for human beings. Thus people would spent [sic] their time shining each other's shoes, driving each other around in taxicabs, making handicrafts for one another, waiting on each other's tables, etc. This seems to [me] a thoroughly contemptible way for the human race to end up, and [I] doubt that many people would find fulfilling lives in such pointless busy-work. They would seek other, dangerous outlets (drugs, crime, “cults,” hate groups) unless they were biologically or psychologically engineered to adapt them to such a way of life. Industrial society makes us fear mortality Your immediate reaction might be that industrial society is worth the lack of control. It increases average lifespan, and prevents early deaths from infant mortality, disease, or relatively easy fixes, such as an appendicitis. Kaczynski says our obsession with longevity and staying youthful is a symptom of our lack of fulfillment, due to the disruption of the power process. If we lived lives full of autonomous struggle toward goals that directly met our biological needs, we would be more at peace with aging and death. A quote: It is not the primitive man, who has used his body daily for practical purposes, who fears the deterioration of age, but the modern man, who has never had a practical use for his body beyond walking from his car to his house. Activism is a surrogate activity He then ties the disruption of the power process back to his criticism of leftism. He says leftists' surrogate activity is activism, or joining social movements. They have a goal, and struggle toward achieving that goal, but they'll never be satisfied. This, he says, is how leftism creeps toward totalitarianism. Once one goal is achieved, another will be invented. The proposed plan: let the system destroy itself His entire manifesto is written from the perspective of “we.” He poses as a group of people called “FC,” standing for “Freedom Club,” and presents a strategy for his goal of destroying industrial society, and replacing it with primitive society. Kaczynski points out that modernity separates us from our local communities. We break ties to family and move, so we can work a job, in the name of efficiency. He advocates for living in small groups, and growing his anti-technology movement by having as many children as possible. The conflict line: masses vs. power-holding elites Interestingly, he says to draw the conflict line in this movement between the masses and the power-holding elites, and cautions specifically against turning it into a conflict between those who are revolutionaries and those who are not. This is some impressive strategic thinking, as it was also mentioned in the book, Blueprint for Revolution. I interviewed the author, Srdja Popovic, on episode 179. Popovic pointed out, for example, that Occupy Wall Street was a poorly-branded movement, because it drew a conflict line between those who could participate by camping out in the financial district, and those who could not. Calling it “the 99%” would have drawn a more effective conflict line. Don't strive for political power Counterintuitively, Kaczynski advises to not try to gain political power. He says that if the “green” party were to get voted into office, it would cause massive unemployment, they would get voted out of office, and it would turn people off to the party. He supported free trade agreements such as NAFTA, because he felt it would further integrate the industrial system, making it more likely it would collapse, and causing such a collapse to be more widespread. He says to be anti-left – and this is where we start to see the motives behind his seemingly-out-of-place opening rant. He doesn't want to see leftists take over his movement, because he thinks they would replace the goal of eliminating modern technology with their own goals. He says leftists will never give up technology because ultimately they crave power. Basically, he doesn't want to work within any existing structures of industrial society. He instead wants to see living in industrial society get so bad that the hardships can only be blamed on the system. Small-scale technology is more robust than large-scale He says small-scale technology is robust to shocks – local things such as planting crops, raising livestock, or making clothes. He points out that when the Roman Empire fell, people in villages could still make a water wheel or steel. But the aqueducts were never rebuilt, their road-construction techniques were lost, and urban sanitation was forgotten. Media manipulation, aka, why the Unabomber killed people Many people these days are surprised to find out that the Unabomber Manifesto contains intelligent and coherent ideas. They merely think of Ted Kaczynski as a mentally-ill murderer. If he's so intelligent, why did he kill people? In the manifesto itself, Kaczynski explains that he felt this was the only way to get his message out. He reasons that if he had merely submitted his writings to a publisher, they would have been rejected. If they had been published, they wouldn't have attracted readers, because everyone is too distracted by entertainment. So, he says, “In order to get our message before the public with some chance of making a lasting impression, we've had to kill people.” Our obsession with violence caused violence As explained in my Trust Me, I'm Lying summary, humans have a negativity bias, and so media has a negativity bias. Ironically, this is a case where our paranoia about negative events apparently caused negative events. Newspapers and news shows covered Kaczynski's terror campaign for more than fifteen years, until he sent his manuscript, typed on a typewriter, to several newspapers, essentially saying: Publish this, and I'll stop killing people. What Kaczynski did to get coverage makes the tactics Ryan Holiday confessed to look like actions of a saint. His bombings were “pseudo-events” with very real consequences. Assuming this was truly Kaczynski's strategy – and not a backwards-rationalization he came up with after doing what he simply wanted to do – was it an effective strategy? His reputation precedes him, such that people resist taking his manifesto seriously, given what he did. While he got his words published, even nearly thirty years after his last bombing, it's hard to see his words through the dark cloud of his crimes. The manifesto helped catch the Unabomber Publishing the manifesto was an effective strategy for law enforcement in catching Kaczynski. Attorney General Janet Reno gave the okay for the Post and Times to publish the manifesto. This put it in front of enough people the FBI was finally able to identify the anonymous killer. Kaczynski's brother's wife recognized him from what he said in the manifesto. Was this the explosion before the implosion? Reading Kaczynski, I can't help but wonder, If he could have held off a little longer or been born in a different time, might he might have been able to tolerate society? Kaczynski's terror campaign spanned a peak in what Marshall McLuhan calls “mechanical technology.” As his campaign was ending, in 1995, the internet was proliferating – an “electric technology.” This was a world where having a job meant commuting to an office, following a dress code, and working within a hierarchical organization. Once you were home, your only contact with others besides your family or people you called on the phone was media fed to you through your television or radio, or through objects that had to be transported, such as paper books, magazines, records, or VHS tapes. The internet has de-mechanized our world But the internet has further de-mechanized our world. More creators, such as myself, work with near-complete autonomy, outside of traditional hierarchies. People connect with one another around interests. We communicate without borders. As Marshall McLuhan described in Understanding Media (which I summarized on episode 248), mechanical technology “explodes” our world – an unfortunate but apt metaphor in this context. Mechanical technology compromises our individuality to turn us into cogs that fit together, while electric technology “implodes,” allowing our individuality to once again blossom. In 1998, the Washington Post reported that Kaczynski nearly confessed to a psychologist, in the late 60s, that he fantasized about being a woman. He didn't confess, and later cited that as the moment he decided to become violent. Maybe if his gender dysphoria had been more acceptable, his path may have been different? Today's society may not be the small-scale society Kaczynski envisioned, and this electric implosion certainly has its problems, especially as it conflicts with the structures in place from the mechanical world. But, maybe it would be just a little less pressure, so as to prevent trying to blow up the place.

I want to share with you an important principle today that I feel will set you up for success over the coming weeks.  It is the principle of Perspective, Action, and Determination. The Key to Overcoming Obstacles lies in a message from Marcus Aurelius: Objective judgement, now at this very moment. Unselfish action, now at this very moment. Willing acceptance-now at this very moment-of all external events. That's all you need. Thanks for listening today.  I look forward to talking again tomorrow.
