What do you crave? Well, whatever it is, the next time you crave it, there is something simple you can do that can make the craving pass quickly to help you avoid temptation. I begin this episode with this very easy tactic that has been proven to work. https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/psyched/201104/clenching-your-fists-increases-willpower Would you say you are a cynical person? A cynic is someone who doesn't put much faith in the goodness of others. Many cynics say they are just realists - that people can't be trusted because humans are motivated by greed and self-interest. Well, when you look a little deeper, cynicism may not be such a great way to view humanity according to behavior scientist Jamil Zaki, PhD, who is an associate professor of psychology at Stanford University. He has a great TED Talk called Escaping the Cynicism Trap and he is also author of the book The War for Kindness (https://amzn.to/2qtq4dX) . Listen as he reveals why some of us are cynics and what being cynical does to a person. Jamil was on an earlier episode talking about empathy which I think you will enjoy if you haven't heard it. You can listen to it here: https://www.somethingyoushouldknow.net/338-dirty-jobs-host-mike-rowe-offers-a-different-view-of-success-the-awesome-power-of-empathy/ It hopefully comes as a comfort that almost everyone has regrets about how they have handled their finances. So much so that a large number of us have actually shed tears over money mistakes. What's more important is what are you going to do now with your money? Joining me to discuss that and offer some very specific advice to get your financial house in order is Joe Saul-Sehy, a former financial planner who hosts the popular podcast called Stacking Benjamins https://www.stackingbenjamins.com/ and has a new book out called Stacked: Your Super Serious Guide to Modern Money Management (https://amzn.to/3KaBYO1). Joe mentions some financial apps in the episode.

Engraved on the Statue of Liberty it reads, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free...” A beautiful sentiment, indeed. The reality is a little less poetic. When refugees reach America's shores today, they face the daunting task of rebuilding a sense of community while trying to work through a system that is ill-equipped to give them the support they need. That's where Luma Mufleh comes in. Twenty-nine years ago, Luma came to the United States as a refugee and has since found herself on a path she didn't expect - building schools to support refugee children. After hearing her TED Talk, “Don't Feel Sorry For Refugees, Believe In Them,” I couldn't wait to get her perspective on how to build a community devoted to taking care of each other. This is… A Bit of Optimism. For more on Luma and her work visit: www.fugeesfamily.org https://www.ted.com/talks/luma_mufleh_don_t_feel_sorry_for_refugees_believe_in_them
“If you only ever did the things you don't want to do, you'd have everything you've ever wanted.” - Mel Robbins We all want to change something in our lives. Maybe it's about your health, your relationships, or your wealth, but the bottom line is everyone constantly thinks about improving their lives, but not everyone commits to it. In this episode, listen as I talk about how you can develop a growth mindset and how you can fight through and go beyond the honeymoon period of change. 5 Proven Ways to Develop A Growth Mindset: Get in the game. Go all in 100%. The worse you feel, the more committed you can be to your process. Look at your life. Identify who you want to be. Highlights: ✅ If you don't act on what you want to happen in your life, it won't happen. ✅ Commit to what you want to do. Do not leave a gap for doubt and hesitation. ✅ You need to identify with who you are going to be to go beyond who you are right now. Recommendations:

WOW! Resilience is amazing! Not only is it a powerful tool to minimize stress, improve performance and create more ease, meaning and joy…it's something we can all develop in ourselves! Simple, daily practices have proven effective at building resilience and helping folks deal with difficult situations; manage emotions and generate a positive outlook about life. We could use some of that right now! SHOW NOTES On this episode of Crina and Kirsten Get to Work, the timely topic for tillitating tete a tete between our co-hosts is resilience. Let's be honest - we are two years into a pandemic, regardless of your political persuasion many feel political and economic certainty and, oh yes, let's add all of the regular challenges of being human in this world. IT'S A LOT! So what do we need - of course we need ease, meaning and joy - and there are good things out there - a dear friend, a beautiful sunrise, a long walk, a sweet dog - lot's of good things. We just need to get ourselves in a place where we can enjoy those things and that is where resilience comes in. Adversity doesn't discriminate. If we are alive, we are going to have to, or have already had to, deal with some tough times. Navigating those tough times requires resilience - and resiliency is something we control. In the world of positive psychology, resilience is being able to recover and adapt quickly from a traumatic event or stressor. In other words, it's a kind of inner strength. Generally speaking, resilient people have a positive outlook; deal with difficult situations with ease and don't exhibit excessive negative emotions during difficult times. Resilience helps us minimize stress, improve performance and leads to more ease, meaning and joy at work. But a word of caution - some folks are critical of the ' ‘resilience movement” because it puts the burden on the individuals who have little control over the systems they're affected by. Think of racism or sexism or ableism. While resilience can be very helpful in these situations, an individual's resilience does not, for example, resolve racism. Resilience can help us manage but it is not a solution for systemic distrimination. The good news is that because there is a concrete set of behaviors and skills associated with resilience, you can learn to be more resilient. One, resilient people get that shit happens. They know that suffering is part of life. This doesn't mean they actually welcome it in, they're not delusional. But, resilience people seem to accept that suffering or challenges are part of every human existence. Two, resilient people are really good at choosing where to focus their attention. They analyze a situation and focus on the things they can change and accept the things they cannot change. It is not about diminishing the negative as much as it is focusing on where they can get traction in changing their situation. Three, resilient people ask themselves, iIs what I'm doing helping or harming me?" They seem to be aware of whether their actions are taking them in the directions they want to go - or not. This requires self-awareness and honesty. Four, resilient people respond to stress rather than reacting and to stress and mental agility, which is the ability to cognitively take a step back from the experience, label thoughts and emotions and change their attention and/or the narrative about the situation. Five, resilient people compartmentalize so that they are not juggling or managing too much. This is similar to where resilient people direct their attention - and sometimes it makes sense to ignore some things and focus on others.. Six, resilient people understand the importance of connection - knowing they have a circle of support and being able to reach out if necessary. Seven, humor, which is an indicator of a positive outlook in general, also contributes to resilience - for all of the reasons - endorphins, a flat stomach . . .. Eight, resilient people have optimism and hope or or belief or something like it - this can be a small kernel of hope or a belief that something good will happen. Resiliency is a skill we can learn and improve over time and with practice. Resiliency can be as small and simple as enjoying a hot bath at the end of a hard day or as big and complicated as losing a job, taking steps to redefine what we want in a job and getting out there to get it.

“The reason that you should accept our client as having rights is because we're showing what an extraordinary being she is. These beings have mirror self-recognition, they know that they are elephants. In fact, we listed 42 different, highly complex cognitive abilities that elephants have. If you didn't know it was an elephant, you'd think [I was] talking about what a human being does.” - Steven Wise There is an elephant who lives all by herself in a small enclosure at the Bronx Zoo. Her name is Happy. She arrived at the zoo in 1977, a few years after she'd been kidnapped from the wild in Thailand. The Bronx Zoo claims that Happy is Happy. The best elephant cognition scientist in the world have argued that she's anything but. And most of us regular human beings can see that an isolated elephant in a tiny enclosure is not living a good life. Steven Wise is the founder and president of the Nonhuman Rights Project. In 2018, the Nonhuman Rights Project brought a petition for writ of habeas corpus on Happy's behalf. Habeas corpus is a common law right that protects against unlawful and indefinite imprisonment. In Happy's case, the NhRP are seeking recognition of her fundamental right to bodily liberty and transfer to an elephant sanctuary. Last spring, the New York court of appeals, the highest court in the state of New York, agreed to hear Happy's case. This is the first time in history that the highest court of any English-speaking jurisdiction will hear a habeas corpus case brought on behalf of someone other than a human being. In a story for the Atlantic, Jill Lepore called Happy's case, “the most important animal-rights case of the 21st Century.” Steven Wise has been working toward this since 1980.

https://www.globalresearch.ca/video-dr-sucharit-bhakdi-these-vaccines-are-killing-the-young-and-the-old-they-are-killing-our-children/5765866 Natural Herbal HPV "Cure" Discovered Chittaranjan National Cancer Institute (India), January 5, 2022 Despite the widespread belief that HPV infection is a singularly lethal force against which we only have vaccination defend ourselves, both ancient herbal medicine and our body's inherent immune defenses have newly been confirmed to have significant power against it. A groundbreaking study published in the Asian Pacific Journal of Cancer Prevention reveals that vaccination and watchful waiting are not the only recourse against HPV infection. The study is believed to be the first of its kind to find an effective and safe therapeutic intervention for the clearance of established cervical human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. Moreover, the study confirmed that HPV infection is self-limiting and clears on its own in 73.3% of the untreated placebo group within 37 days. (NEXT) Proper exercise can reverse damage from heart aging University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, January 8, 2022 Exercise can reverse damage to sedentary, aging hearts and help prevent risk of future heart failure - if it's enough exercise, and if it's begun in time, according to a new study by cardiologists at UT Southwestern and Texas Health Resources. To reap the most benefit, the exercise regimen should begin by late middle age (before age 65), when the heart apparently retains some plasticity and ability to remodel itself. And the exercise needs to be performed four to five times a week. Two to three times a week was not enough, the researchers found in an earlier study. (NEXT) Aspartame Is Linked To Leukemia And Lymphoma In New Landmark Study On Humans Natural Health Federation, December 28, 2021 As few as one diet soda daily may increase the risk for leukemia in men and women, and for multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma in men, according to new results from the longest-ever running study on aspartame as a carcinogen in humans. Importantly, this is the most comprehensive, long-term study ever completed on this topic, so it holds more weight than other past studies which appeared to show no risk. And disturbingly, it may also open the door for further similar findings on other cancers in future studies. (NEXT) Rhodiola defeats chronic fatigue in just one week Uppsala University (Sweden), January 5, 2022 The ancient Vikings reportedly utilized it for its refreshing powers. The Sherpa mountain people relied on it to help them scale the heights of Mount Everest. Rhodiola rosea, an herb grown in Arctic areas of Asia and Eastern Europe, is relatively little known in modern times – but, it probably should be. Recent scientific studies have consistently shown that rhodiola causes significant improvement in fatigue symptoms – and starts working in less than a week. (NEXT) Trial affirms arginine benefit in erectile dysfunction Università Federico II di Napoli (Italy), January 3 2022. A trial reported in the Journal of Endocrinological Investigation added evidence to a benefit for supplementation with the amino acid L-arginine among men with erectile dysfunction (ED). The findings suggest that L-arginine could serve as an alternative to PDE5 inhibitor drugs used to treat ED which are not always effective or can be associated with side effects. Fifty-one men received two grams L-arginine three times per day and 47 received a placebo for three months. (NEXT) Using smells to boost learning during sleep The authors confirm that the strategic use of aromas while learning and during sleep might improve exam performance — even outside of the laboratory University of Freiburg (Germany), December 24, 2021 In a nutshell, the recent study concludes that if we smell an aroma while we take on new knowledge and then sleep next to a source of that same odor, we will find it easier to recall the information at a later date. To investigate, the scientists recruited 54 students from sixth grade classes in Germany. They asked these participants to keep rose scented sticks next to them while they learned English vocabulary at home. A week after the students first encountered the vocabulary during a school class, they sat an exam. The scientists split half of the students into four experimental groups: Group 1: No exposure to any odor cues. Group 2: Exposure to rose scent while learning at home and during the vocabulary test. Group 3: Exposure to rose scent while learning at home and during each night before the test but not during the test. Group 4: Exposure to rose scent while learning at home, every night before the test, and during the test. (NEXT) (ARTICLE) Woke Culture's Reality Deficit Disorder Richard Gale & Gary Null PhD Progressive Radio Network, January 7, 2022 If anti-racial wokeness is true, then the more deeply we probe and investigate it, the truer it should appear. This was one of William James' fundamental principles when he made efforts to turn the psychology of his day into a valid science. If James' methodology had not been obliterated by the rise of behaviorism in 1910, psychology would be completely different today. We might actually be treating and curing people of mental disorders without prescribing life-long medications. On the other hand, if DiAngelo's hypothesis is false, the more deeply one investigates, which includes introspection, the more false it will appear. That is where robust inquiry comes in: to determine what is simply true regardless of whatever your personal unsubstantiated and biased beliefs about it might be. What you believe has absolutely no impact upon whether something is true or not. This is also basic Buddhist epistemology that has been repeatedly replicated by contemplatives for several millennia. Neuroscience, including its gross failures and tendencies towards metaphysical realism, has more to tell us about the inherent dangers in White Fragility's doctrine. First, modern brain science has not produced an iota of evidence to confirm that the mind and consciousness are solely a product or output originating in neuron and synaptic activity. None. Contrary to the evidence, most neuroscientists and evolutionary biologists nevertheless embrace this opinion as a settled matter. But it is ridiculous to believe that evolution somehow dragged along our ancient single-celled ancestors until some point was reached when a conscious mind -- a “nothing” that is not observable, not measurable, not quantifiable, without atoms or photons, mass, electric charge or spin – mysteriously arose out of something, such as genes and biomolecular phenomena. Therefore cognitive scientists pretend to know something about the mind and consciousness when in fact they haven't a clue. Although DiAngelo is not stating that socialized racism among Whites is genetically determined, the trajectory of her argument has the potential to lead towards that conclusion. She does consider systemic White racism as being unconscious. Therefore she has moved her social theory into psychology. Since modern psychology today is becoming increasingly informed by the neurosciences, which in turn is being informed by evolutionary biology, it is only a small leap away to find her theory complementing genetic determinism as a means to explain Whiteness' conditioned racism. If her socialized determinism, and that of the neuroscience and evolutionary biology fields, are correct, then it would break the fundamental physical laws of energy conservation and causal efficacy. In effect, DiAngelo is saying White people have no choice. It's socialized chemistry or its socialized chemistry; either way its socialized chemistry. In effect, DiAngelo is admitting that her own perceptions about reality are fundamentally flawed. Why is that? Dr. Donald Hoffman has been a professor of neuroscience at the University of California at Irvine for over three decades. He has an impeccable background having studied artificial intelligence at MIT. But unlike the vast majority of his colleagues, Hoffman broke ranks and passed beyond neuroscience's 19th century mechanistic base and dared to study modern quantum physics and relativity theory. Theoretical physics is almost anathema in human biological research and medicine, which is why these soft sciences have made so little progress to improve human health and well-being. Hoffman has performed hundreds of thousands of simulations comparing different species and their chances for survival based upon their ability to perceive and comprehend reality more accurately or not. His discoveries are startling and utterly revolutionary. Hoffman discovered, across the board, species that best perceive reality go extinct more rapidly than competing species that only perceive what is necessary for them to remain fit and survive. During an interview following a TED Talk, Hoffman stated, “according to evolution by natural selection,” – and here he is limiting himself solely to evolutionary biological theory and not the various competing theories about the nature of consciousness – “an organism that sees reality as it is will never be more fit than an organism of equal complexity that sees none of reality but is just tuned to fitness. Never.” In other words, evolution has nothing to do with perceiving reality more clearly, but only to be more fit in order to adapt, survive and procreate. And now physicists are even telling us that the primal cause behind all physical objects may be consciousness itself, which has no association whatsoever with natural selection. For example, Professor Edward Witten, regarded as “the world's smartest” physicist at the Institute for Advanced Studies at Princeton, has been compared to Newton and Einstein. Witten doesn't believe science will ever understand consciousness. “I think consciousness will remain a mystery,” Witten stated during a lecture, ”I have a much easier time imagining how we understand the Big Bang than I have imagining how we can understand consciousness.” Or we can listen to Stanford University theoretical physicist Andre Linde: “The current scientific model of the material world obeying laws of physics has been so successful that we forget our starting point as conscious observers, and conclude that matter is the only reality and that perceptions are only helpful for describing it. But in fact, we are substituting the reality of our experience of the universe with a conceptually contrived belief…” One may feel our critique is too abstract with little or no practical application; however to at least conceptually understand race in terms of our sensory perceptions can have enormous benefits to cut through and lessen the false semblances that arise from reality deficit disorder that winds up producing books such as White Fragility. Moreover, contrary to DiAngelo's arguments, British journalist Melanie Phillips offers a clearer understanding for why we should not rely upon the pundits of anti-racial wokeness to save us from ourselves. Despite disagreeing with Phillips on many of her other socio-political positions, she correctly identifies the fundamental flaws being voiced by arrested development wokeness across our campuses and within the corporate wing of the Democrat party. First, it is unable to establish a hierarchy of values and morals. For example, if one refuses to say that any lifestyle or culture is better than another, then it cannot be said that liberalism is better than conservatism or any other ideology. Consequently, faux liberalism cannot legitimately defend the very principles upon which it defines itself: racial and gender equality, freedom of speech and religion, justice and tolerance, and class struggle. It contradicts its own principles and follows DiAngelo's footsteps to remove the dignity of the individual, which in the past was at the heart of authentic liberalism and once served as its moral backbone. What we are witnessing therefore in Woke liberalism – and in DiAngelo's reinvention of racism -- is “the strong dominating the weak,” and this is an ill-liberal ideology that is already showing signs of having catastrophic consequences in classrooms and the workplace. Finally, if DiAngelo's theory is correct, then all Whites, without exception, in American history, were unconsciously transmuted into racists starting at the time of their birth. What is her proof? Is there any scientific evidence to support this outrageous claim? Did she consider the lack of sensitivity towards other peoples and races who were victims of racial identity and violence, such as the Jews who experienced genocide at hands of their Nazi overlords? And what would she say against those Whites who have fought against racism throughout the American experience, such as the Abolitionists in the US and UK who put their bodies at great risk? In principle she is labeling them too as racist despite their fighting, protesting and even dying as committed anti-racists. Many Whites have embraced other races and cultures with open arms; however, DiAngelo wants us to believe this legacy was a sham, because in some strange voodoo way they were unconsciously racist. Is this not the height of hubris and arrogance?
About This Episode: One of the best things about a new year is that it is a blank slate. Reflect on last year as you start creating a new vision for 2022. I've found that there are 1 of 2 perspectives you can choose to take—and that choice determines what you will, and will not, carry with you into the year ahead. In this #WalkWithMe episode, I share what those 2 perspectives are and why I believe everything that happened in 2021 was just preparation for what comes next. *** Subscribe to the ALIVE by Design podcast on: Apple Podcast, go to https://alivebydesign.com/subscribe YouTube, go to https://www.youtube.com/BlakeMallen Audible / Amazon Music, go to https://www.audible.com/pd/Podcast/B0...

Richard Gale & Gary Null PhD Progressive Radio Network, January 7, 2022 During the past two years, the rise in wokeness and its cancel culture has shocked the sensibilities and moral fabric of the nation. It has fuelled divisions between races, class and economic status, levels of education and political allegiances. However, the anger that wokeness has carried into civil discourse is a symptom of a much deeper causal factor buried in the national psyche; that is, America's pervasive “reality deficit disorder (RDD).” This is a condition that has proliferated across the American landscape since the Age of Enlightenment and the 19th century's advent of scientific materialism as a secular religion. The proponents of modern behaviorism and the neurosciences are likewise saturated with RDD. The Woke self-congratulating experts and false prophets are its public face. These are plastic liberal intellectuals who have found reinforced their sense of self-righteousness by spreading the post-modern gospel of Robin DiAngelo's 2018 bestseller White Fragility. Despite the widespread adulation DiAngelo has received from liberal educators, the mega-corporate elite, and the left media, she has managed to jockey herself away from the deep scrutiny her writings and lectures deserve. An exception is Jonathan Church, author of Reinventing Racism, who brilliantly exposes DiAngelo's flaws and deconstructs her façade of her impartial objectivity. Church takes a more philosophical offensive to shed light on DiAngelo's implicit biases and contradictions that in turn distort the very ideas she attempts to proselytize. While we agree wholeheartedly with Church's polemic, we would take a more cognitive approach and state that DiAngelo's racial theories of irredeemable Whiteness as an inherent social construct have no basis in reality whatsoever. White Fragility reads like a tantrum by an author with a third-rate intellect who is deeply confused about her own gender and racial identity. “All white people,” DiAngelo wants us to believe, “are invested in and collude with racism.” If you were born White then racism is built into your socialized development and behavior regardless whether your family background is exemplary of racial justice or not. There can be no escape from this curse, DiAngelo suggests, no redemption or purification by fire regardless of how much penitence, public service or charity you perform for the greater good. We wonder whether she would include the indigenous blond hair, blue-eyed Finno-Ugric peoples inhabiting the northern forests and tundra of Scandinavia and Russia's Kola Peninsula as being socially structured and therefore colluding in the world's racism. The author reminds us of someone who has read every published book about chocolate and thus feels qualified to write one of her own despite never having tasted chocolate. Philosophy and postmodern sociology in general, notably the modern philosophies of science and mind, often suffer from this mental affliction. They write books about other philosophers' books who in turn wrote books about their predecessors' scribbling. Right-wing critics of wokeness and certain factions within postmodern Critical Race Theory likewise indulge in a similar cognitive hallucination built upon feeble-minded pre-Galilean superstitions. Their perceptions about themselves and the world, their righteous anger and biases, are similar to dreamscapes, phantoms they have conjured and which can have dire long-term consequences to the welfare of innocent victims prejudiced and canceled by their vitriol and condemnation. There have always been conflicting ideologies, cherished beliefs and inflamed emotions towards racial discrepancies, social order and justice or how the nation should be governed. But today these cognitive afflictions, masquerading as passions and righteous causes have disintegrated into tribalism. This is now fomenting new class and racial distinctions and struggles as well as media turf wars. No one can accurately predict where this collective reality deficit disorder will lead ultimately but it certainly won't contribute to a positive advancement of human well-being. It repeats the old adage of garbage in, garbage out. “The greatest need of our time,” the Trappist monk Thomas Merton wrote in his Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander, “is to clean out the enormous mass of mental and emotional rubbish that clutters our minds and makes all political and social life a mass illness. Without this housecleaning we cannot begin to see. Unless we see we cannot think.” Merton believed that this “purification must begin with the mass media.” We would suggest it also begins with our educational institutions. Teachers who embrace White Fragility's social folly and logical fallacies need to introspectively gaze and observe the destructive ataxia nesting in their own minds. If anyone wonders why the nation is so angry, screaming and protesting, one reason is because the failed neoliberal experiment, the culture of political nepotism, a captured and biased media, and a thoroughly corrupt judiciary have created this horror show. And DiAngelo seemingly wants to gather tinder to keep racial conflagrations burning. "Nothing in all the world is more dangerous," Martin Luther King lamented, "than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity." It is our deep ignorance about not first knowing ourselves and appreciating our intrinsic interconnections with each other and the environment that perpetuates the suffering around us. These deeper existential relationships can potentially outsmart and surpass the benefits Critical Race Theory has to offer. Underlying any social structure is to be found cognitive causal relationships. This includes our attachments to whatever accomplishments and failures we experience in our lives through racial identity, which may lead to a reality deficit with all of its superiority complexes, apathy and depression. First, there is sufficient empirical science to reach a consensus that we are a culture that has become habituated to mistaking its unfounded perceptions about itself and the world as reality-based. This applies to our cognitive conceptions of Whiteness, Blackness, Yellowness, etc. Church makes this clear; DiAngelo's use of the term Whiteness is “nebulous” and “vague.” He points out that her logic falls into a Kafka Trap, referring to Kafka's novel The Trial when an unassuming man is dragged into court and accused for an unspecified crime; subsequently his unwavering denial is itself interpreted as absolute proof that the accusation is true. “Yes, all white people are complicit with racism,” writes DiAngelo, “People will insist that they are not racist… This is the kind of evidence that many white people used to exempt themselves from that system. It is not possible to be exempt from it.” Consequently, for DiAngelo, Whites can only speak about their “whiteness” in terms of how it reinforces an implicit racism within the social system. But from a neuro-scientific perspective, all colored racisms are skewed perceptions of reality. For example, when we gaze into a deep azure sky we immediately assume there is physical blue over our heads. However, there are no blue-colored photons reaching our retinas. Rather, our brains receive the emitted photons and through a complex channeling of information from the eye to the visual cortex. The brain then Photoshops the color azure and projects it through our glance into the empty space of the sky. The same is true whether we gaze at a verdant forest canopy, a fiery sunset, the fluorescent, shimmering hues of a fanning peacock's feathers or observing an African, Asian or European person crossing the street. There is nothing mysterious behind this; it is visual brain science 101. No neuroscientist questions this visual phenomenon. We reify the sensory stimuli the brain receives from the objective world and then grasp and cling to these as being factually real. Theoretically race may be understood as only a conventional or relative appearance arising to our mental perceptions. No absolute objective claims can be made about it; therefore, there cannot be any absolute analyses or one-size-fits-all solutions for confronting racism either. In striking contrast to White Fragility's cognitive deficiencies, we may consider an argument posed by the great Jewish German existentialist Martin Buber. Buber speaks of an I-You relationship when we engage with another person as another subject instead of as an object. There's a subject there, and that subject is every bit as real as the subject over here. For example, as much as I might care about my own well-being, then so does another person. To transcend White Fragility's divisions and its many shortcomings, which relate to others as I-Its -- as mere objects -- we simply need to be aware of Buber's advice, and become fully engaged with that reality. Buber highlights this as a profoundly existential problem in modern society. It is debilitating. It is dehumanizing, although for DiAngelo and the cancel culture preserving racial I-It relationships is not only valid but essential. When we regard others simply in terms of whether the color of their skin is appealing or unappealing, pleasant or unpleasant, superior or inferior, and so forth we are bifurcating impressions that have no substance in reality. We are simply treating other sentient beings as if they have no more sentience, no more subjectivity, no more presence from their own side than a robot or computer. But that seems fine for DiAngelo and her tragic dehumanizing dogma. If DiAngelo were unintelligent or had severe brain damage, we might understand and would certainly sympathize. But she -- and we would argue many of those who would carry White Fragility's banner into school classrooms -- are likely very educated people. That is the calamity and the clear evidence for the deep-seated spiritual impoverishment when a person is viewed as nothing more than the race of their physical bodies. If anti-racial wokeness is true, then the more deeply we probe and investigate it, the truer it should appear. This was one of William James' fundamental principles when he made efforts to turn the psychology of his day into a valid science. If James' methodology had not been obliterated by the rise of behaviorism in 1910, psychology would be completely different today. We might actually be treating and curing people of mental disorders without prescribing life-long medications. On the other hand, if DiAngelo's hypothesis is false, the more deeply one investigates, which includes introspection, the more false it will appear. That is where robust inquiry comes in: to determine what is simply true regardless of whatever your personal unsubstantiated and biased beliefs about it might be. What you believe has absolutely no impact upon whether something is true or not. This is also basic Buddhist epistemology that has been repeatedly replicated by contemplatives for several millennia. Neuroscience, including its gross failures and tendencies towards metaphysical realism, has more to tell us about the inherent dangers in White Fragility's doctrine.

Contrary to the evidence, most neuroscientists and evolutionary biologists nevertheless embrace this opinion as a settled matter. But it is ridiculous to believe that evolution somehow dragged along our ancient single-celled ancestors until some point was reached when a conscious mind -- a “nothing” that is not observable, not measurable, not quantifiable, without atoms or photons, mass, electric charge or spin – mysteriously arose out of something, such as genes and biomolecular phenomena. Therefore cognitive scientists pretend to know something about the mind and consciousness when in fact they haven't a clue.

Damien Horne began performing at a young age growing up in Hickory, North Carolina. After high school graduation, Damien took a Greyhound bus to Los Angeles chasing his entertainment dreams. After becoming homeless, Damien returned to North Carolina where he formed the band Stellar Tree and made the move to Nashville. Performing on the streets at night led Damien to be discovered by country star John Rich who invited him to join the MuzikMafia through which Damien was able to secure a publishing deal and tour nationally with such artists as Dwight Yoakum, Kid Rock and John Legend. Damien released his first album "Somebody's Hero" produced by Big Kenny of Big & Rich. Outside of his solo career, Damien also formed the country-trio THE FARM which was signed to Warner Music Nashville. The Farm's debut single "Home Sweet Home" hit the Top 20. Damien Horne now musically collaborates with Krista Marie and cohosts the television show, “The Song”. He also has an inspirational trio called “The Magi”. Damien splits his time between Nashville and Los Angeles speaking, singing, and acting. If not on stage he can be found in schools, prisons, and even Ted Talks sharing his message of hope. https://www.damienhorne.com/ THE GOOD GOOD LIFE COURSE Code: #thekellycardenaspodcast $50 discount https://thegoodgoodlife.samcart.com/products/the-good-good-life-coaching-course Thank you to our sponsors Findlay Volvo Las Vegas https://www.findlayvolvocarslv.com/ Samaritans Feet https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/KellyCardenas?utm_medium=email&utm_source=ExactTarget&utm_campaign=20220105_ Pinks4Cancer https://recycling4acure.org/ Cardenas Law Group https://cardenaslawgroup.com/ Squeeze Dried https://squeezedried.com/ PAUL MITCHELL HAIR CARE DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR STEP https://store.kellycardenassalon.com/collections/all-products BLING SHINE SERUM-The #1 seller of over 15years and the only product to be endorsed by my MAMA! https://store.kellycardenassalon.com/products/kelly-cardenas-salon-bling?_pos=1&_sid=6a4a4c2b4&_ss=r WEBSITE https://www.kellycardenas.com/ EXECUTIVE PRODUCER BROOKLYN CARDENAS

If you are a property management entrepreneur that wants to add doors, make a difference, increase revenue, help others impact lives, you are interested in growing your business and life, and you are open to doing things a bit differently, then you are a DoorGrow Hacker. DoorGrow Hackers love the opportunities, daily variety, unique challenges, and freedom that property management brings. Many in real estate think you're crazy for doing it.

At DoorGrow, we are on a mission to transform property management businesses and business owners. We want to transform the industry, eliminate the BS, build awareness, change perception, expand the market, and help the best property management entrepreneurs win. I'm your host, property management growth expert, Jason Hull, the founder and CEO of DoorGrow. Now, let's get into the show. Today's topic, friends, we're going to be talking about a code of communication. During my weekly coaching call with clients today, a client got vulnerable and asked, how do you deal with an uncomfortable conversation? The situation was this particular client of mine has a potential client that keeps calling him up and asking how they should do things. He really wants this person's doors. He really wants to get them on as a client. He's being nice. But now they're starting to say, hey, I really need a concrete vendor to do this and I need somebody. He's being helpful and he's giving out some info. I know a lot of you listening are like, do not give out your vendors. I'm freaking out, but he doesn't want to give out anymore and he feels like he's being taken advantage of. Now I asked some qualifying questions. I said, how do you feel about this to get clarity on that? I'm guessing by bringing this up, did you feel taken advantage of? Do you feel like it's uncomfortable? His question was, how do I have this uncomfortable conversation, or how do I move them forward towards maybe becoming a client? It was kind of the question. My feedback to my client is that you need to get really honest. When we get really vulnerable and honest, it allows other people to see that we're human beings, it allows us to have much more effective communications. As I said, rather than tell you exactly what to say, let me share with you the principles because this is generally how I like to work. Because how he says it might be unique to him, but I said what you need to do is practice a code. I learned this years ago from a coach named Setema Gali Jr. He was part of a coaching program that I was part of. He was my coach. I believe he's the first person that explained this to me. I've heard lots of coaches share this idea. I'm not sure where it originally got its start, but the idea is this code of communication called real, raw, relevant, and results. This is also connected to Wake Up Warrior and Garrett J. White. That's who Setema was working for at the time. Setema, just let me tell you about this guy, a 300-pound Polynesian. He played for the New England Patriots. He has a Super Bowl ring, I believe, won a Super Bowl. He is a really big guy and a really powerful speaker. I really enjoyed working with him. This concept I'm going to share with you is this code of communication that will improve your communication in your relationships personally. It'll improve communication between you and your potential clients. It helps you with challenging situations, challenging communication. This is the mode of how you should always approach communication. In general, this is a code for life. It's four R's, four R words: real, raw, relevant, and results. Let me explain this code of communication and we'll go through each of these four items. When you're communicating with somebody, the challenge is you need to be honest, and this particular client of mine had not yet been really honest with this potential client that he was speaking with about how he was feeling and what he was experiencing. The very first thing is you have to tell the truth, be honest. That's a factual truth. This is the mental logical side of things. What you say should be factual, it should be truthful in your communication with somebody. That's step one. Just don't lie. If you're saying, oh, it's okay and it's not okay, you're lying. The very first thing is to honestly communicate, and that's just telling the truth. The first is real, be real. Be real with people. Just be real with people. Tell the truth. Now the second is closely related. But not only is there logical, honest communication. There needs to be emotionally honest communication. This is where a lot of people fail in their communication. It's not fully honest because you're not really sharing how you feel about things. Logically, what you're saying may be true, but we're being dishonest if we're not honestly expressing how we feel about something emotionally. The second R is raw. So be real, get raw. Most people don't want to get raw. This is what we call being vulnerable. There's power in being vulnerable. There are books written on this subject like Brene Brown, I believe, is her name. The Power of Vulnerability was a big TED Talk, YouTube videos, and whatever. Getting vulnerable is a source of power. A lot of people see it as a weakness. But the most powerful person is the person who has the confidence to get the most raw with people and to be the most emotionally honest. It allows other people to feel safe being honest with you as well because it's at a deeper level. The real thing is that they felt taken advantage of. That's factual, but expressing how that makes them feel would deepen that conversation like, hey, I feel uncomfortable. We've had lots of conversations, facts. I've helped given you some freebies and given you some access to some vendors that I use, facts. I'm feeling though, that I'm being taken advantage of. It makes me feel uncomfortable. I run a business. I care about my clients. I want to take care of them. But then when I have somebody that is not paying me, asking for this information, and I'm helping them out, it makes me feel like whatever you feel. That's getting raw and expressing the honest emotional side of things. The next is to stay relevant. Be real, get raw, stay relevant. Keeping things relevant is important. It's easy to start whining and sharing all your feelings about whatever's going on in your life, but they don't care about that. Whatever the conversation you're having—whether it's kids, spouse, potential clients, existing clients, tenants, whatever—it should be relevant to them. If they don't care and it's irrelevant to them, they're not going to pay attention to it anyway. You're wasting your breath, you're wasting your time, and you're probably gossiping or emotionally manipulating. It's not relevant, so make sure it's relevant. The communication should be relevant to what the real situation is. It should be relevant to the feelings and thoughts that you're having around that thing that you're currently talking about, not other stuff. It's one thing to just get really real and honest and go up to some random person or even a potential client and say, oh, yeah, how are things going? And you start blabbing your whole life story and problems to them. They don't care about that, it's not relevant. So make sure your communication is relevant. Now the next is results. It's real, raw, relevant, and results. So be real, get raw, stay relevant with a ruthless commitment to results. If you are committed to results, that means you need to know what your communication targets, wants, and desires. You need to know what you want. You have to have that clarity. Otherwise, it's not going to be relevant. What you want are results. So if it's relevant, it's going to be focused ruthlessly on getting towards the result. What's the outcome? What is your desired outcome? This is why on my Calendly link, it always asks the question, for appointment scheduling with me, what is your desired outcome? What's the outcome you're hoping for during this conversation? Maybe I can move towards that. What is your desired outcome? If you're going into a conversation that's going to be uncomfortable, you need to be clear on what is true, what factually happened, what do you know for sure, how do you feel about that? You need to have that clarity of how you feel. You need to know what's relevant to them, what's relevant to the conversation, and what's relevant to you. You need to know what you want. What results or outcomes are you hoping for? To honestly express, in this instance, this example, it would be very honest, real, and raw to express. Let's say this potential client was named Suzie. We're talking to this potential client. Hey, Suzie, I've helped you with this, I've done this, and I'm starting to honestly feel like I'm being taken advantage of in this relationship. I want to be honest with you, my goal and being helpful in talking to you, all these multiple times we've had calls is because I want to get your business. I want to get you on as a client. So I need to know, that's what I want, is that going to happen? Is that a reality? Do you see that you potentially will become a client, or are you just taking advantage of the fact that you know that I know some of the things you might need? If so, then maybe we need to have a different conversation. But are you interested in becoming a client or working with me for property management or letting me take over your units? This is expressing what you want and that you might be able to express what Suzie wants. You can say, Suzie, what is it that you are wanting? My understanding is you want this property to be taken care of. You probably don't really want or enjoy dealing with finding contractors and dealing with these challenging and difficult situations. I would love to take that off your plate. I want to do that for you. That would be much more effective communication and it'd be far more honest because the reality of the situation is this communication leading up to this point, this client of mine had not yet been honest with Suzie or whatever their name is. Had not yet been fully honest with them and hadn't lived according to this code of communication. Everything gets better and easier if you're willing to live. It's uncomfortable sometimes to have this communication, but it's less uncomfortable, I believe, than dealing with feeling taken advantage of, feeling misaligned internally, feeling frustrated, feeling annoyed by people. Honestly, express. There's a really good book I'm listening to right now. I really love this book so far. It's called Radical Honesty. This guy is really refreshing to listen to. I appreciate it. It really made me take a look. I've always prided myself on being a very honest, open person. That's always how I've wanted to run my business. One of the core facets is transparency that we subscribe to in our core values. That's why I created my original business, it was called OpenPotion. We all have a built-in liar and that's our brain. It's always trying to help us avoid pain. So if our brain is saying, well, it'll be an uncomfortable conversation that our brain lies and comes up with stories around this. Maybe they know or maybe I shouldn't bring this up. Maybe that'd be uncomfortable if I brought this up or set it this way. Maybe I need to be nicer, more diplomatic. That's our brain lying. We have this built-in liar that is always there in the background creating stories and filtering our perspective and our view from past pain and past history trying to protect us from future pain and creating more problems in our life. We have to confront that, and we have to deal with that and get even more honest. This is something that I remind myself of and that I hope is helpful to you is to be real, get raw, stay relevant with a ruthless commitment to results. If you focus on this mode of communication with family members, potential clients, or anybody that you care to communicate with, you're going to have a much better result. You're more likely to get the results out of this that you want because you're communicating honestly. You're going to create more safety. You're going to create more trust, sales, and deals happen at the speed of trust. Relationships, the foundation is trust. This is going to help you build more relationships and improve your close rate. I hope this has been helpful to those listening. That is all I have to share today. If you would like to have an objective perspective in your business because you're too close to the fire as all of us business owners are and you want a mentor, coach, or somebody that can help you move your business forward, I would be honored and happy to help you grow your business. We have clients getting fantastic results in our Mastermind program. You can check us out at doorgrow.com and set up a call with us to learn more about our DoorGrow and Scale mastermind, how we are helping grow and scale companies. That is what I will leave you with today. I hope this has been helpful to those listening. If it has, please give us some positive feedback on the various channels in which you may be listening to this, whether it's YouTube, iTunes, or wherever, we appreciate that. It helps us get the message out to others and benefit more people in the industry, which is our mission at DoorGrow. That's it. Until next time to our mutual growth. Bye, everyone.

Check out our website for more details. Episode Highlights Sheri's Secret Sauce●Sheri has a knack for gathering a group of people to do things as a group. She also mentions that she could herd kittens.●When she was younger, she wasn't picky about her jobs and took them one after another. She was determined to find a job that could provide stability for her retirement. ●Sheri wasn't finding meaning in what she did, wasting her devotion on jobs bereft of purpose to her.●Although she felt miserable after trying out multiple jobs, she still persevered. She later found her purpose in her life and applied that to her job search.The Time to Try New Things●The feeling that you are sacrificing your life for a paycheck could indirectly hint that you should try finding meaning elsewhere.●When Sheri became an entrepreneur at 56, she first experienced what it felt like to enjoy a job.●Another lesson Sheri taught us was to take risks. Searching for your true passion is a process of trial and error.●She advises others to try entrepreneurship. Alternatively, work for a startup company to observe the empowerment that comes with being an entrepreneur.Making the Right Decision●There are different kinds of decisions in life. A governing decision is the most powerful decision that sets a framework for your life.●Sheri urges us to be decisive. It doesn't need to be a good decision at that moment — the mistakes of today help your judgment tomorrow.●When you're deciding, ask yourself whether you would feel good about it. If it feels good, you are encouraged to proceed. You can always change course later.●Your slippery character is the part of you that stops change. The fear of an unknown future prevents you from finding meaning elsewhere. ●Talk to your slippery character. Though it may simply want to protect you, help yourself understand that you can make a positive change in your life.Matching Energies●To reach a dream, match the good feeling. Manage your mood and thoughts to approach the actions positively instead of negatively.●What often gets in the way is starting to think of the ways it's going to go wrong. Fear shifts your energy from matching the dream to repelling it.Stopping Comparisons●Sometimes you might feel inferior when comparing yourself with others.●Look at your comparisons as a treasure hunt. Learn from others that you like and learn to apply their methods in your pursuit of success. ●Match your positive and encouraging energy with your dreams and manifest them through practice. ●Be more conscious of what you are practicing. Take control and focus on good practices that can help you.Finding Meaning In Her Work●Sheri was 35 years old when she started working at the Oprah Winfrey Show in an entry-level work position.●She began finding meaning in her job as she took notes on all the spiritual experts, teachers, and leaders she met.●That job was where Sheri found the quantum. She started cultivating a spiritual life and connected with the universe. ●Even until now, she continues to look for portals of opportunity. She evaluates her drawbacks and looks for ways to improve and become a better person.●When Sheri reflects on her constructive transformations and retains her energy, she rises and grows. Transformational conversations pushed her into finding meaning.Sharing Stories●There is an empowering element in taking ownership of your own experiences and genuinely sharing them. ●During her book tour, Sheri realized that sharing her stories helped in her healing process. ●Sheri noticed that her audience and readers shared their stories as well. Essentially, she believed that the exchange helped them make amends with their inner wounds.●The overall experience helped her audience recognize their potential and the abundant possibilities they could explore.●Every story has an impact on its respective readers. We can find good value and lessons in any story.Sheri's Favorite Things to Do●Last January, she launched a course called "Write Your Story, Transform Your Life," where she spends weeks of deep transformation with others.●Sheri enjoys inviting people to her masterclasses and workshops organized by her private membership group called "The Support System."●A vacation to Italy is what she began doing to reward herself.●Whenever she does her favorite things, she notices herself blossoming into a better person. Ultimately, she has found ease in her current life. Desired Takeaways for Sheri's Book Tours●Sheri hopes that she conveys as much learning as possible from her experiences, hoping it would inspire her audience to seek positive change.●She also hopes she delivers her message and experience to her audience properly.●After each event, she thinks about what she got from it and what she gave back.How Sheri Experiences Radical Love●Over the last three or four years, Sheri learned what it truly means to love herself.●Being kind to and counting on herself forges another level of self-love that only she could give. No one in the world will love her more than she loves herself.●Sheri loves animals and desires to help rescue animals and farm sanctuaries. It would be better if she were to take care of a huge group of rescued animals.●She states that we are in a co-beneficial relationship with other sentient beings on Earth. This is why she chooses to be a shepherd who cares for them.5 Powerful Quotes [6:56] “Lean into happy, lean into what feels good. Quit trying to push the boulder up the hill and make the wrong relationships work, the wrong jobs work.”[14:40] “We're just in decision paralysis. Anytime you feel yourself in that place, take that really seriously, because it means you are delaying a magnificent future. You're delaying change, good change.” [19:34] “I needed to look at [comparison] as a little treasure hunt where I literally am out in the world going, ‘I want some of that.' so I could stop comparing myself. Comparison is the death of dreams.”[27:52] “I'm willing to own my experiences, and I share them vulnerably because, first of all, just speaking those words, and those stories heal me.” About the Guest Sheri Salata authored the award-winning book, The Beautiful No: And Other Tales of Trial, Transcendence and Transformation.

73: Exposing The Conspiracy Of Goodness Our guest on the podcast this week is Dr. Lynda Ulrich, TEDX Speaker, best-selling author, and founder of the Goodness Exchange… the home for goodness in the world. There you will find articles, podcasts, events, and a private social media community, built around celebrating countless remarkable efforts that are solving the world's most vexing problems, small and large. Out of our chaotic, seemingly doomed world, Dr. Lynda's voice arises with a strategy for action. She excludes no one and casts no stones. Instead, she points to an enormous wave of goodness and progress, well underway in the world, that she calls the "https://everwideningcircles.com/2019/04/22/conspiracyofgoodness-movement-changing-the-future/ (Conspiracy of Goodness)" of our times. Today Dr. Lynda takes us on a journey as we embrace what it means to become a great servant to humanity, to hear the beat of a different drum, and become intentional about our life. She shares her passion project which is helping others to become more intentional about their relationship with technology, as she helps us to focus on how we can get intentional about shaping the narrative we see online in just four easy shifts. Listen in as we talk through the specifics of how to help the internet show us information more aligned to what we would like to see instead of this constant stream of negativity, that is driven by and then perpetuates fear, anger, and scarcity in our world. She describes the internet as a tool, and how important it is that we decide how we want to use it. It is our opportunity and our responsibility to ensure we all do what we can do to make a difference.

Shar Biggers is the creative director and founder of Provoke Design, a branding studio. A native of Atlanta, by way of St. Louis, she holds an MBA in business management and is a graduate of Miami Ad School's Portfolio Center of Design. In her extensive experience, she has worked with Fortune 500 companies, led design for Amazon rebrands like Amazon Fashion and Amazon Diversity, and helped more than 10 million Americans say "I'm with her" for Hillary Clinton. Here's what we covered on the episode: Shar's Background + Design School How Shar initially reached out to me on Instagram and how we've stayed in contact ever since As a child, Shar was creative but ended up going to school for neuroscience, where she received her bachelor's degree in psychology - she started her PhD program but quickly realized it wasn't what she wanted to be doing even though the work itself was valuable. Shar explains that she changed paths to pursue an MBA instead and tried to get into marketing and advertising agencies for about a year with no success and says she felt very discouraged Finally, an agency that Shar had sent her resume to reached out and asked her to do an internship with them - she accepted and worked in SEO and SEM but says that she was fascinated with the graphic design department there and realized that's what she wanted to be doing Shar Shares that she went to Portfolio Center of Design and did a 2-year program and after moved to New York, where she began working in an ideation firm We talk about how in high school, we didn't know there was this creative world that you could be part of where you didn't have to be considered a starving artist and how our country has been more accepting of creativity Shar recommends a TED Talk called, Do schools kill creativity? given by Ken Robinson Getting Into the Design Industry How Shar found such strong differences between working in design houses vs. working in advertising and says she learned a lot from working in marketing and advertising but felt more comfortable working in design Shar explains that it took her a couple of years to figure out her design identity and says she tried working in print, advertising, branding, packaging, etc. How Shar was able to get into agencies to work in things like media buying, SEO, or social media but couldn't get into graphic design right away because she didn't have a portfolio even though the agencies agreed she had raw talent Shar shares why she thinks it's hard to break into graphic design work at agencies as a self-taught designer because they typically think that if this is your job, you should go to school to study your craft, and they want to rest assured that you have the training and knowledge needed to design because they take it seriously Why we need to bridge the gap between people who took the traditional design route and the people who are self-taught designers or who just graduated from school When thinking about building a portfolio, Shar says it's important to figure out what you love doing first because you want your portfolio to be relevant to the work you want to be doing How you should focus on specializing to a certain extent instead of being a jack of all trades because once you master a certain area, if you want to pivot, people will believe in it, and you because you showed them you mastered something already Shar thinks people should perfect the craft they want to be good at and think about what kind of designer they want to be because everything takes a different route and gives the example of her best friend who also went to school at the same time as her, but took a different route into advertising The story of how Shar worked very hard at school, which even meant sleeping there most nights because she lived an hour away - she shares that she was eating, sleeping, and breathing design to prove that her work was just as good as anyone else Shar's advice to those listening is to think about what you want, how badly you want it, and where you want to go - and if people are not seeing it, you have to take a step back and say, is everyone picking on me or am I missing something? The story of how Shar wasn't able to pay for her last year of school and had to move back home with her mom had no money to her name but launched an online store on Etsy store selling pop culture-focused phone cases that went viral and helped pay for her last year of school Creating Your Portfolio + Provoke Design If you want to build your portfolio, study your craft, and take on free projects if you need to - Shar shares that she took on some very low paying projects so she could master her craft Shar says as a new designer; you shouldn't be so eager for money because you still need to understand the industry and learn but says, if you master your craft, you can charge whatever you want When you're trying to learn, Shar recommends finding a small, local agency that puts out better work than your own and saying, hey, I want to learn, and if you have the capacity to teach me, great Another piece of advice Shar gives is, be willing to intern for free so you can learn the skills you need, especially if you are self-taught; that way, they can be your teacher, and they can help you master your craft Shar created Provoke Design because she saw an unmet need of the market - after working at a lot of different places, she noticed one consistent thing was that she was usually the only person of color and one of the only women, and also noticed the clients she worked with or the products they would put out lacked diversity When Shar worked for Hillary Clinton, Hillary was an advocate for change, and if you didn't see the change you wanted, she encouraged to do it yourself, so that's what Shar did - Shar didn't start Provoke Design because she wanted a design firm, she did it to start changing the design industry Shar says she works with all types of businesses but works to keep her business accessible to brands that can't afford to go to the best branding houses For the first couple of years, Shar was the only full-time person, and she worked with other partners from writers and strategists to art directors and producers based on project budgets Shar is currently working on the logistics of building an in-house team with the primary focus of staying accessible Shar wants to remind you that regardless of your situation or circumstances, you can make a path for yourself - do what it takes to get there and don't be afraid to do the things that may be seen as unconventional Connect with Shar through the Provoke website or follow them on Instagram Links mentioned: Provoke Design Website TED Talk - Do schools kill creativity?

Modern love comes with an unprecedented list of expectations. Relationships can of course be a source of amazing connection and joy, but they can also be really hard. We want our partner to be our best friend, lover, confidant, coworker, therapist, and so much more. We want from one person what an entire village used to provide. To take it a step further, we want a soul mate; we want in another human what we used to look for in the realm of the divine. We want that person to help us become the best version of ourselves. I've been extremely lucky in my life with my career and friendships, but romantic relationships haven't come easy for me.
