What is self-awareness? What is emotional intelligence? What do they do for me? How do I build more? Listen in as Joe and Tyler discuss how improved self-efficacy can change every aspect of your life. If you don't believe you can control substantial aspects of life, you're a slave to making the same mistakes and living in the same stagnant loops. As Nietzsche said, you can be part of the herd or you can narrate your own life as a literal superman. Recall the way Viktor Frankl described how you can insert your will into the gap between what's happening to you and how you react. But it takes a strategy. It takes learning how to think about thinking. Dig into the podcast and let us know your thoughts and questions. We'll see you next time in the Mind-Muscle Connection as we continue to explore topics that can help you live the life you have imagined. Joe Klemczewski, PhD, and Tyler Wiebe, BSc, have teamed up to connect the grind of the iron to the power of your mind. {~} Klemczewski is the founder of The Diet Doc, LLC, The Flexible Dieting Institute, the National Academy of Metabolic Science coaching certification program, the Nutrition Coaching Global Mastermind, Apex Coach nutrition professional mentorship program, and Contest Prep University. Known as the Godfather of Flexible Dieting and macronutrient tracking, Klemczewski, a former WNBF professional bodybuilder, has helped almost 500 clients win pro cards and more than 150 pro titles. {~} Tyler Wiebe was selected by Paul Revelia as one of Pro Physique's original coaches. Wiebe's expertise in kinesiology and his dedication to the client experience sets him apart as a model to the next generation of coaches. {~} Together, Klemczewski and Wiebe will take you through the real life challenges and strategies to make your training and competition experience a mental force that powerfully matches your effort in the gym.

Dave Sanderson is an entrepreneur and a survivor of the most famous plane landing in history. He even had a small role in Sully (the movie about the event). Dave is an inspirational survivor, author and former head of security for Tony Robbins. His thoughts on leadership, business & survival have made him an internationally sought-out speaker.  When US Airways Flight 1549, or “The Miracle on the Hudson,” went into the Hudson River on January 15, 2009, Dave Sanderson knew he was exactly where he was supposed to be. The last passenger off the back of the plane on that fateful day, he was largely responsible for the well-being and safety of others, risking his own life in frigid water to help other passengers off the plane. Dave shares how this experience has changed his perspective on life and on gratitude. One of the most impactful stories is related to what an old lady from the audience said to him after he shared his story at a church gathering, so listen to the episode to find out. :)    Also, he shared his view on a book we both recommend, Man's Search For Meaning, by Viktor Frankl, on the podcast and an in an article: https://davesandersonspeaks.com/suffering-into-purpose/     Stay in touch on social:Insta: https://www.instagram.com/thegratitudepodcast/Twitter: http://twitter.com/GeorgianBentaFacebook: http://facebook.com/TheGratitudePodcast/Intro by Cristina Muresan-Toth: https://www.instagram.com/p/CLHlus5Jwj3/

Today, Debbie talks with Richard Leider about aging with purpose, the fallacy of "finding" your purpose, and how to practice daily. Richard is considered a pioneer of the global purpose movement. Yes, the "purpose movement" is a thing. The topic of  finding meaning and purpose has come up repeatedly on this podcast.  It's key to a life well-lived, we've been told. But how DO you live a life of purpose? Are there any shortcuts or secrets? That's what Debbie wanted to find out from Richard.Richard Leider is the author of 11 books, many of which have been bestsellers, and recently co-authored the book "Who Do You Want to Be When You Grow Old? The Path of Purposeful Aging." He's very much on the right path for himself. At 77, he's working, writing, and still, happily, honing his own purpose. Together, they talk about the idea of purpose in elder hood, and why it is crucial to longevity. They discuss purpose as a verb: it's not something you find but it's something you “do” via purposeful living. Richard shares his story of a profound encounter with author and Holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl in 1968 and how that unlocked his lifelong fascination with purpose.They also get into what he calls in his book the Ultimate Conversation - the one about death that you should have with your family but also with yourself. And Richard shares what he does everyday to practice being purposeful. This might be the secret, if there is one. This is a great conversation with a man who is truly living what he talks and writes about. Mentioned in this episode or useful:Who Do You Want to Be When You Grow Old?: The Path of Purposeful Aging by Richard Leider and David Shapiro (Berrett-Koehler Publishers 2021)Repacking Your Bags: Lighten Your Load for the Good Life by Richard Leider and David Shapiro (‎ Berrett-Koehler Publishers 2012)Global Purpose Movement Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl (Beacon Press 2006)Parker J.

Most people will never be successful ... authentically successful. Viktor Frankl (Holocaust survivor and author of 'Man's Search for Meaning') said, "You become successful and happy when you pursue something beyond yourself … when you dedicate yourself to others. Then success and happiness show up." What is authentic success?

Wir alle urteilen. Egal ob bewusst oder unbewusst. Auch wenn es uns Energie raubt, es passiert ganz automatisch. Wenn du eine Person zum ersten Mal triffst, hast du dir innerhalb von Sekunden eine Meinung gebildet. Das ist menschlich und jeder von uns hat seine Erfahrungen damit gemacht. Allerdings haben wir immer die Wahl, wie wir damit umgehen. Denn durch Veruteilung entsteht oft Unsicherheit, Hass, Angst und Spaltung. Und gerade in der aktuellen Zeit ist das Verurteilen präsenter denn je. Doch was steckt eigentlich dahinter und wie kannst du einen gesunden Umgang damit finden?

Hiya, So, I have been coaching now for over 14 years and worked with lots and lots of different people over that time. And in those 14 years, I have helped many people through major crisis in their lives - whether they are financial, relationship, professional, health, etc..One thing I catch my clients my saying is "I don't have a choice."This does not serve them. This does not help them find creative solutions. This does not help them to become empowered. This does not connect them with the source of life that flows to and through us all. In this Podcast, I have included a 30-min training video I recently recorded, which is filled with the advice and strategies I offer my clients when they start to feel they don't have a choice. In the training video I talk about how to show up differently (as a Leader, warrior and Sage) to overcome even the biggest challenges and obstacles.

Principles of fairness and justice have deep roots in the human psyche: we want to receive our fair share and a fair shake. When man injures man, we may protest, strive for redress, and measure wrong with morality—but what about godly misfortunes? Life, myth, and religion are rich with issues of injustice. Whether personal injury, social inequality, or divine mystery, over-insistence on fairness can lead to depression, resentment, and fixation. Instead, we must distinguish injustice from loss, recognize what can and cannot be changed, and orient to the future. Imprisoned in a concentration camp, Viktor Frankl later wrote, “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's way.”  Here's the dream we analyze:  “I stood opposite my husband as he told me he'd found somewhere else to live, and with a mystery woman. I paced around; we were in a busy place. I reached for my phone, unsure whom to phone or text. I felt panic as I realized I wasn't sure who I could rely on, aware of a sense of burden. I didn't have a job yet; how would I support myself and our children? In the dream, I was aware there was a separation that felt as if I had instigated it in order for him to realize our marriage was worth saving. However, him moving on so swiftly made me feel as if I'd made a huge mistake. As I returned home, my neighbor invited me to a cafe to talk. I felt hungry, and junk food was placed in front of me. She wanted the gossip. I felt the urge to share but knew everyone would soon know about my husband leaving.”  REFERENCE: Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0006IU470/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_8Q0BT8KHK0WD6CCPAHWJ  RESOURCES: Learn to Analyze your own Dreams:  https://thisjungianlife.com/enroll/ Link to Lisa's lecture and workshop October 15-16, 2021: https://ofj.org/event/another-whom-we-do-not-know-dreams-as-the-voice-of-the-inner-companion/

Pain is real. It is inevitable in life. The pain of a relationship ending. The pain of betrayal, the pain of leaving someone and the list goes on. Suffering is not pain. Suffering is a psychological construct. Suffering is a mindset. Suffering is the not letting go of the pain which should be long gone now. Suffering is the meaning we give the pain. Suffering can be avoided. Pain cannot be avoided. Pain rises, falls and disappears. Suffering is when we prevent the pain from falling or even disappearing. Pain has an organic natural ebb and flow and end. Suffering interrupts this natural expression of the human condition. How do we stop the suffering? One way is to surrender. Surrendering is accommodating ourselves wisely in situations beyond our control. This is a fancy way of practicing the art of letting go. When we wisely accommodate ourselves to situations beyond our control we practice acceptance. Pain often involves some kind of grief. Grief follows the path of denial, anger, sadness and eventually acceptance. Surrender is allowing ourselves the permission to accept what has or is happening when it is beyond our control. The other way of letting go of the suffering is to find meaning. Viktor Frankl in his mind blowing story as a survivor of one of the worst concentration camps in history said we can find meaning in 3 ways. 1. From work we feel is significant and contributes to other. 2. Caring for someone. 3. Finding courage in doing something difficult. Pain will happen, suffering does not have to happen.

As you will hear on the pod she has a beautiful way of translating wisdom for a wider audience and our conversation touches on William James, Carl Jung, Shakespeare, Viktor Frankl and many more. There is so much to learn from history and if we can find a way to be just that little bit more aware everyday, the benefits accumulate. Poppy launched the Not Perfect podcast and the Happy Not Perfect app after four years of aggregating behavioral studies and developing the app with neuroscientists, researchers, and her psychotherapist mom. Her debut book, “HAPPY NOT PERFECT: Upgrade Your Mind, Challenge Your Thoughts, and Free Yourself from Anxiety” is a best seller and it's here that she introduces an approach to stretch our minds that she calls “the Flex”. And this is in order to create new, healthy thought habits and overcome challenges, whilst making us a bit more “psychologically bendy”.Poppy was also appointed as the youngest member of UCLA's Stewart and Lynda Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital advisory board to consult on the wellbeing of students. She's taken part at the first mental health talk series at Cambridge University, lectured at the UCLA Wow Summit on brain health, and delivered a TEDxTalk titled,“Addicted to Likes” about the psychological impact of social media and technology and how to reverse the damage which I recommend checking out.I know you're going to love this one and do check out this week's “Eat, Listen, Read” newsletter, that you can find on www.thedoctorskitchen.com, where I send you a recipe to cook as well as some mindfully curated media to help you have a healthier, happier week.

"Man's search for meaning is the primary motivation in his life and not a 'secondary rationalization' of instinctual drives. This meaning is unique and specific in that it must and can be fulfilled by him alone; only then does it achieve a significance which will satisfy his own will to meaning." —Viktor E. Frankl First published in Germany in 1946, Viktor Emil Frankl's seminal work Man's Search for Meaning and the desire to write his first book (to be titled The Doctor and the Soul: An Introduction to Logotherapy) that largely gave him the will to live while imprisoned at Auschwitz during WWII. Marrying psychology and philosophy, a primary focus of his work throughout his life, Frankl shares "Certainly, my deep desire to write this manuscript anew helped me to survive the rigors of the camps I was in." Now with more than 16 million copies sold worldwide, Man's Search for Meaning continues to be a book to read, understand and reread. While not having the opportunity to read it until now, I am grateful that at least I finally did read it, and I would like to share with you today nine lessons learned about the importance of finding meaning in our lives. Much of the premise of a simply luxurious life is centering our lives, our selves, or perhaps a better word is grounding ourselves in priorities that marry what we can uniquely give, but also what the world desperately needs to progress and cultivate a more civil, loving and peaceful place for not only ourselves, but future generations. At first, such a task given to each of us may sound ginormous and far too weighty a task, but when we drill down, ultimately, love, sincere love, being able to share our true selves and be accepted begins to create a harmony of contentment that cannot help but create a symphonic awareness grounded in a desire to live more peacefully and lovingly with each other. Too far reaching some may contest, but if my own life journey, which indeed is filled with good fortune and privilege beyond my choice or control, demonstrates, when we have not found our meaning, when we are discontent, building healthy relationships is incredibly difficult, and often fraught as while trying to make sense of our lack of purpose, we displace our pain, so I wholeheartedly find worthwhile value in exploring what Viktor Frankl teaches, and hope it will offer tools for you as well to tap into what gives you meaning and share it with not only the world but yourself so that your everydays may be full of contentment. Let's take a look at the nine lessons. 1.Choose to pursue the will to meaning Frankl defines the will to meaning as "the striving to find a concrete meaning in personal existence". For when we find our individual will to meaning, the healing begins. Existential frustration subsides, neuroses find solutions, anxieties wane and contentment soars. 2. Find your meaning, find your way forward Frankl shares an anecdote of an American diplomat who came to his (Frankl's) in Vienna discontent with his current career. Following five unfruitful years with his former psychological analyst who claimed the discontent came from the need to reconcile himself with his father as the analyst made a parallel with the father and the U.S. being a superior figure, upon visiting Frankl, and following only a few visits, the patient realized with clarity that his "will to meaning was frustrated by his vocation, and he actually longed to be engaged in some other kind of work. As there was no reason for not giving up his profession and embarking on a different one, he did so, with most gratifying results." 3. Nothing is wrong with you if you feel existential distress; in fact, you are heading in the right direction Frankl points out, moreso for practicing therapists, to not equate existential distress with mental disease. Asserting, "it is [the task of the therapist], rather, to pilot the patient through [their] existential crises of growth and development." So often in my own life journey, the distress of frustration by my career, my relationships (or lack thereof), and what I was meant to do with my finite days on earth, felt as though it was a burden, not good fortune. Something was 'wrong' with me for not having figured out my life journey immediately, quickly and feeling at ease. Thankfully, the opposite is true, all was well. I was listening to myself, I was acknowledging something didn't 'fit', what I was giving, what I was spending my time doing either wasn't enough or it wasn't aligned with my talents and what the world potentially needed. In this post - 9 Ways to Think Like a Monk, as taught by Jay Shetty - Shetty's idea of Dharma is shared. Passion + Expertise + Usefulness = Dharma In many ways, finding our Dharma is to find our will to meaning. 4. The unexpected gift of tension "What man actually needs is not a tensionless state but rather the striving and struggling for a worthwhile goal, a freely chosen task. What he needs is not the discharge of tension at any cost but the call of a potential meaning waiting to be fulfilled by him." I chose to bold the phrase 'freely chosen' because I find it to be an essential element to finding true contentment. Even if your life is charmed, yet you still feel discontent and frustration, yet society applauds, your family applauds, your friends cheer for what you are doing with your life, most likely, you have unconsciously not chosen for yourself the life you are living, but rather have been steered by approval, expectation and mores to take the steps and make the choices you have without truly acknowledging what you long for. Which leads me to the next item on the list, but first . . . Welcoming tension in your life must be thoughtfully done. After all, unnecessary stress is harmful to our health. No, what Frankl means by stating tension is healthy has everything to do with pursuing what gives you meaning. If you derive meaning from advocating for a cause, then the path forward will undoubtedly be fraught as you are striving for progress, but you strive forward anyway because it is your will to meaning. If you derive meaning from raising a family, nurturing your children as to give them their own wings with which to fly, the journey together will be a mingle of emotions, but you strive forward because it is your will to meaning. If you derive meaning from contributing through your chosen career path to improve the lives of others, you navigate through the frustrations, setbacks and hurdles because it is your will to meaning and you know why you are pursuing it. When the path we are on does not fulfill our will to meaning, similar to the anecdote of the American diplomat mentioned above, then the tension becomes unhealthy. Then we must be frank with ourselves and find the courage to change course and bravely do so, not only for our own well being, but for those we love and the world at large. Why? Because the world needs what you uniquely have to give. Figure out what that is and then begin giving what you discover. Your tension will be reduced to a healthy amount and your contentment will soar. 5. Discover what you long for and find your contentment The term Logotherapy as defined by Viktor E. Frankl derives its meaning from the Greek root Logos which is defined as "meaning". Logotherapy "strives to find a meaning in one's life as the primary motivational force of man". Logotherapy opens itself up while including 'instinctual facts within the individual's unconscious [it] . . . also cares for existential realities, such as the potential meaning of his existence to be fulfilled as well as his will to meaning." In other words, Logotherapy assists the patient to become aware of "what he actually longs for in the depth of his being". Understanding the language of your true self can sometimes be difficult and take time especially if we have suppressed it for some time; however, we are each capable of learning our language when we choose to be a student of ourselves. As I share in my About page (I recently updated it to reflect more accurately and specifically what TSLL is all about, but the shared portion below remains the same as it did in 2009), while I valued and gave my all to teaching, in 2009 I finally acknowledged that something wasn't entirely being satiated by solely working in the classroom." (see the excerpt below) The Simply Luxurious Life came into fruition in 2009 when I realized the life I enjoy living—a life full of simplicity, yet punctuated with everyday luxuries found even in the most routine of days, was something I wanted to explore more fully due to the immense contentment it brought into my life. In fact, I needed to explore it more intentionally because while many people didn't understand how I could live well and contentedly on the everyday income as a public school teacher (I retired in 2021 after twenty years), I had a curiosity for the world, especially the French culture followed by my appreciation for the British countryside and their gardening wonderland, that wasn't entirely being satiated by working in the classroom. And this is an example of our lives speaking to us.  Thankfully I listened and decided to share my discoveries, passions, and ideas as a way to inspire others so that they too could find their passion as a way to living a life full of true contentment by clearing out the clutter (figurative and literal) and bringing in the luxurious necessities to enliven and inspire each day no matter what their income, age, location or relationships status. —TSLL's About page (Start Here) When we find meaning, even if nobody else understands why such a path speaks to us and brings us to life, we have found the motivation of infinite energy, creativity, tenacity and strength. 6. Find your meaning, eradicate boredom Frankl coins the term 'Sunday neurosis" as "that kind of depression which afflicts people who become aware of the lack of content in their lives when the rush of the busy week is over and the void within themselves becomes manifest." He goes on while speaking about the existential vacuum to share that without the will of meaning, and with the improved automatization of our 21st century, "many will not know what to do with all of their newly acquired free time". Which is to say boredom, anxiety, distress and lack of direction cause more solvable problems that he argues can be largely solved when we find our will to meaning. This is not to say you have to be busy every moment, pack your schedule with appointments; in fact, I would argue, it is the opposite. Or perhaps, more accurately, it is a knowing what supports and nourishes your will to meaning and thereby finding comfort with your down-time that is a part of your self-care and confidently engaging in your productive time when on task. 7. Your next best step toward meaning is what is best for you "The meaning of life differs from [person] to [person], from day to day and from hour to hour. What matters, therefore, is not the meaning of life in general but rather the specific meaning of a person's life at a given moment." I found it helpful to note that Frankl directly advises not to search for an abstract meaning of life, but rather a concrete 'assignment which demands fulfillment'. In other words, don't commodify yourself, but rather what is it you bring that is helpful and that you find fulfillment in giving? "Thus, everyone's task is as unique as is his specific opportunity to implement it." 8. Finding strength during times of suffering "When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves." Just as Frankl's own life exemplifies harnessing his will to meaning to survive the unthinkable tragedies and struggles during WWII, he writes, "In some way, suffering ceases to be suffering at the moment it finds a meaning, such as the meaning of a sacrifice." However, and this is crucially important to absorb, he continues on in the same section of the book to point out "But let me make it perfectly clear that in no way is suffering necessary to find meaning. I only insist that meaning is possible even in spite of suffering—provided, certainly, that the suffering is unavoidable." 9. Hold yourself in the present fully for all the days of your life Frankl writes that we must refrain from being pessimistic and instead be activistic when it comes to our human existence. That is to say, "The pessimist resembles a man who observes with fear and sadness that his wall calendar, from which he daily tears a sheet, grows thinner with each passing day. On the other hand, the person who attacks the problems of life actively is like a man who removes each successive leaf from his calendar and files it neatly and carefully away with its predecessors, after first having jotted down a few diary notes on the back. He can reflect with pride and joy on all the richness set down in these notes, on all the life he has already lived to the fullest." He goes on to suggest there is no need to envy the young because we have lived fully each of our days, holding ourselves in the present, motivated by our will to meaning, and "instead of possibilities . . . have realities [from our past experiences] . . . not only the reality of work done and of love loved, but of sufferings bravely suffered." Just as happiness cannot be experienced in every moment, suffering cannot be wholly avoided when we find our will to meaning and let it guide us forward. However, by holding ourselves in the present moment, while we cannot avoid experiencing the loss of loved ones, we can love fully, so that when we reflect, we are filled with joy and reminded of the riches of our lives, riches we, by bravely living well, engaging with our humanity, courageously stepping into what we discover is our will of meaning, helped to bring forth into our lives. Upon learning about Viktor E. Frankl's approach to therapy and perspective on the meaning of humans, I found an alignment that has unconsciously spoke to me to honor for decades. Although never making sense, and not having the opportunity, nor pursuing more intentionally philosophy courses in college, the ideas danced about in my mind, and while I, at the time, wanted them to leave me alone because they were so perplexing, they thankfully waited for me to make sense of them, to trust them. The world swirling around us via media, messaging, our community can be deafening and hold us off course if we let it. But when we understand that the feeling of frustration is actually a sign that we are hearing our inner voice, we can find peace. Because in that moment of aha, we can take a breath, and continue to pursue the questions that keep bouncing around in our mind, because, if my own journey is any indication it is a path that will lead you to everyday contentment. I do hope you enjoy this week's episode of the podcast. Thank you for stopping by and tuning in. Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E.

And, uh, he's been in town for a few days and it's so interesting because it upsets my routine. And in a, in a fine way, like I'm absolutely not complaining. Um, and I love my brother tremendously. And, uh, I just want to say a few things about my brother and then some inspiration, um, that I had at the same time. So, uh, yeah, Nixon town naked. If you're listening to this, to this episode, I love you. Um, uh, yeah, so Nick gets to town and, um, it was right after my camping trip. And, uh, and so as I'm trying to find my new routine coming out of the summit and I go on this camping trip, get back and Nick shows up the next day and, and, uh, I had all this momentum recording episodes for, for this podcast.Mischa Z: 01:07 And then as soon as Nick lands and like too bashful to record an episode in front of him, um, trying to find the time usually recorded my house or walking, but not finding time to walk, anyhow. Um, and just in a bit of a, of a state of, uh, oh no, again, what am I going to record? What am I gonna record? I'm I'm idealess. Idealless for a podcast episode and, uh, all of a sudden, so this is one of the things I'm going to talk about. I've got a couple more in regards to Nick. Um, but this is really in regards to some inspiration that I had. So I was just reading "A Course In Miracles", you know, as Nick was kicking it on the couch, it's the afternoon, three or four in the afternoon. And, and I keep, you know, turning to my intuition or source or, you know, the infinite intelligence and, and trusting that don't worry.Mischa Z: 02:22 It's okay if your Nick's here and you're not having a ton of cohesive thought streams of thought for, for, um, an episode. Just trying to trust that right. And keep like, saying that mantra to myself, Hey, it's okay. The ideas will come. Or I had all these great content flowing front, um, the Viktor Frankl book. And I'm hoping for more content from that book, because it was so rich with ideas and talking points. And there were, uh, interestingly in the Victor Frankl book, there's a couple of thoughts where I was like, a couple of this ideas might go, oh, maybe I would disagree a little bit. So I think that will be fun to talk about as well, perhaps or anyway. So as, uh, I'm reading "A Course In Miracles", I find this really juicy paragraph about pausing for a moment and letting go of some preconceived notions and things.Mischa Z: 03:46 So you can see people in a different light and the inspiration hits me as I'm doing what the paragraph says, oh my gosh, what a great meditation this would be and what a great episode that would be. And, um, it's been lurking in my mind as I, when I, from when I started the podcast. And even before I started the podcast, perhaps I would do some sorts of, you know, meditations and, uh, and so to have that thought pop into my head and that willingness feels super exposed. Wanting to do a meditation episodes. I just feel super exposed to me, like putting myself out there in a way that's very raw. And so the thought of actually doing it was very far away. The idea of it was there, but perhaps the willingness and the inspiration seemed elusive and fleeting at best. And so to have that inspiration come to me was pretty cool. And the next thing that happened was go do the meditation yourself, take 20 minutes, breathe that in and let it settle and internalize it and then come back and record the episode. And, uh, so that's what I did. Yesterday's episode was the, was the outcropping of that. Is that the right word or the result of that? Um, it's really funny as I'm walking through traffic, talking on my phone, getting interesting looks, trying to not get hit by a car,Speaker 2: 05:57 Hitting pause, just hitting start again. I found a bench to sit on. Sure. It he'd get hectic all the sudden as I was walking and recording. So anyway, it was super fun to do that a little, you know, seven or eight minute episode meditation. And I'm assuming that as you're listening to this, I actually published it. Um, but I did some, I did some literally four or five years ago. And I still have some that were recordings laying around where I started playing with this microphone that I'm recording on and playing with meditations and things, but never with, did I actually think I would record and publish meditations? It's a very exciting, thank you for listening. Listen to yesterday's episode. I hope you find it fun. Um, and so lastly, just want to talk about Nick and give a little shout out to Nick. And I could probably do a whole nother episode and perhaps I will, but I just want to say right here in this moment, how, how I really, my brother is such a good man and how, oh my gosh.Speaker 2: 07:23 It's may have trains super loud RVs. I thought this was going to be a nice, calm, quiet episode. It's not turning out that way. The best laid plans of mice and men hang in there, everybody. But just to see just how cool it is to have a brother is who was so supportive of what I feel like are my shenanigans, right? Like doing podcasts and summits and, and, uh, just over my life, he's always been encouraging to me and, and, uh, and, and one of my biggest supporters and my biggest fans in the face of sometimes what seemed to be crazy behaviors. So a big shout out to my brother. And I would encourage anybody to think about the people in their lives, who support you, who are the people in your lives that support you no matter what, and just encourage you. And I hope you have at least one of those people in your lives. One of them is absolutely my brother, and I'm very grateful for him and just life is good. That's it? I'm going to stop. Now. I survived. This is one of those episodes where I feel like I survived in spite of the mayhem flying on around me.

Victor E Frankl, Frankl Frankl. Yes. Victor E Frankl. "Man's Search For Meaning" more thoughts of my camping trip. Um, on the last episode, I was going to say how Victor Frankl perhaps inspired me, or I got to draw a direct correlation between service and, um, how Victor Frankel thinks what drives man is meaning having meaning in your life. And Victor breaks it down into three main ways. It's not necessarily what I'm going to do on this episode because I've not prepared. Gosh, you'd hope I would be, but there's lots of winging it these days. Um, it seems that there's always something going on. Let it rip, let it rip, take the messy action. Anybody out there wanting to create a podcast, a blog, a YouTube channel who wants to start, you know, getting their thoughts, ideas, their message out there, or maybe they just want to entertain who knows what the motive is, but they want to use a blog, a YouTube channel, um, a podcast as a mechanism for this or this, the source to do that.Mischa Z: 01:29 Take the messy action. Just take the messy action. That's what I'm going to tell you because you probably, well, I'm guessing you don't have an audience yet, so no one's going to be there to judge you. And if you do have an audience while they know who you are anyways, so no big deal take the messy action is which what I seem to be gifted with doing, taking the messy action on my podcast. So Viktor Frankl, um, you know, one of the things he talks about is his, his meaning how having a purpose in your life, and it does not have to be big and it doesn't have to be, it's having meaning in the moment. That's what it is. It's having meaning meaning in the moment. And he talks a lot about it in regards to the concentration camp experience and how people can derive meaning in life, even though they're headed towards death rapidly or they're seeing it or, or all of this.Mischa Z: 02:40 And I am, I'm hesitant to talk about it because it's so extreme. And I'm a white boy from Wyoming who now lives in Encinitas, California making podcast episodes. So, um, one thing I had been saying to a few friends is, you know, as we're trying to detach from controlling people, places and things, and trying to learn how to find joy or meaning in, in the moment and cede control of, of how we think people are supposed to act, feel, think what they're supposed to do, you know, as we're scaling God up bigger and bigger, and then, you know, inevitably someone brings these extreme circumstances of murderers and rapists and, you know, military leaders or, you know, leaders who do lots of damage. Right? And I had this thought of like, well, can we have our god so big and trust so much that there is something greater than this moment of our human existence, that if we were to have an executioner or we could smile lovingly to that executioner, or as they were opening the door to, you know, the, the, the hangman's noose for us, and I'm doing the best I can to talk about that idea, to be willing, to talk about that idea, to conceptualize that idea, given my, given my circumstances.Mischa Z: 04:35 Um, and so fast forward to reading Victor Frankel's book, and then in essence, he's talking about love and finding meaning in the moment as you're, you know, suffering extremely and perhaps dying, um, or being put to death. Um, I'm going to still work on how to talk about that. I think they're, they're interesting ideas. One idea that he floats is, um, is like: if you put even a small amount of gas in an enclosed space, the gas evenly distributes through that space, perfectly, and he correlates that to that, to suffering. He's like, so it doesn't matter how much suffering you have in a human consciousness. If it's a little, it's going to fill up the space. Same as gas fills up the void. And so he's like, Hey, his thesis is suffering a suffering, which is pretty crazy, right? Cause this dude went through for three years in four concentration camps.Mischa Z: 06:07 Um, anyway, I get my, thank you for listening to that. I'm going to try to continue to talk about the ideas that were sussed out, um, by Viktor Frankl in his book and within me. And one thing was, is finding meaning one way to find meaning is service. How can you serve in the moment? And, uh, I love that because I'm all about service. I've talked about it on other episodes. It's a big part of, you know, recovery of the recovery community is carrying the message. How can you be of service? And it's obviously within churches and religions and, and there's plenty of nonprofits out there. And so it's, it's this, isn't a new idea by any means on a big scale, as well as on a small scale. Being nice, forgiving, smiling, opening the door for somebody. Like it can be the tiniest things, a gracious nod, letting somebody in within traffic, like letting somebody in without throwing a fit, flipping them off. You know, if somebody cuts you off graciously, be cut off smile, wave. Thank you.Mischa Z: 07:31 Um, so it's, it's about nine o'clock at night on the camping trip and it's dark and there is a heavy, there's this part of a climb to get to the next lake. I wish I could remember what it is, but it was up heavy, heavy, like you almost wanted to have ropes, but you know, people were doing it with backpacks and things. But a couple of guys we look up and all of a sudden we see headlamps at nine o'clock at night, scaling down this chute to get back to crater, to, um, iceberg lake. And, um, it was hard enough for people to do that part of the hike in daylight let alone at night. So it was, it was honestly better than watching Netflix because it's a very far away, but you can see the two headlight beams and a very dramatic, very dramatic.Mischa Z: 08:31 They make it that it takes them half an hour, 45 minutes, whatever it is. And, um, they walked by us because the trail goes by our campsite and we're talking to them for a second. And I say, Hey, I'm inspired all of a sudden, Hey, do you guys need a campsite? Because they're clearly tired by now. It's 10 o'clock at night and you can't see anything to find a campsite. And, um, I happened to know where a couple of campsites were and they were so relieved and so excited and so happy. And, um, and I just thought of Victor Frankl and being of service and, and how in that moment after just finishing his book, I got to ask those guys if I could help them with a campsite. And we showed him this, uh, ridiculous campsite that we found, and they were just so happy.Mischa Z: 09:28 And, you know, I was gratified in the moment gratified in that I had meaning. And, um, it was just a really cool experience and to be in nature, just feeling the whole vibe of that, all the flow of it all. And, uh, yes, I'm doing a quick time check. Um, that's what I've got for you. The serendipitous events that led to me finishing the whole book and then yeah, I would encourage anybody to read "Man's Search For Meaning". Great, great book, just a great, great book. And I'll talk more about it. Love to all again, I'm going to say, get your tails out there and go camping. Get out in nature detached for two or three days, if you can, but I guess you can do silent retreats, all sorts of things. Um, many people are doing that. I'm just going to encourage you to do it again. If you have done it and absolutely get out there, if you haven't. All right, I'm done peace out.

I brought one book on my camping trip.  Victor E Frankl's “Man's Search For Meaning".  And circumstances allowed me to read the whole thing.  And after a long hike there is nothing like jumping in a mountain lake and drying off on a granite slab.Administrative: (See episode transcript below)Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitStart podcasting!  These are the best mobile mic's for IOS and Android phones.  You can literally take them anywhere on the fly.Get the Shure MV88 mobile mic for IOS,  https://amzn.to/3z2NrIJGet the Shure MV88+ for  mobile mic for Android  https://amzn.to/3ly8SNjGet A Course In Miracles Here! https://amzn.to/3hoE7sAAccess my “Insiders Guide to Finding Peace” here: https://belove.media/peaceSee more resources at https://belove.media/resourcesEmail me: contact@belove.mediaFor social Media:      https://www.instagram.com/mrmischaz/https://www.facebook.com/MischaZvegintzovSubscribe and share to help spread the love for a better world!As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.Transcript: Mischa Z: 00:04 This episode is going to be more, well, this episode is going to be about "Man's Search For Meaning". "Man's Search For Meaning", Victor E Frankl, and not necessarily about the book, but just about an idea that I had on how to, how to talk about the book, I suppose. Um, and then the serendipitous events on how I got to read the whole book during my camping trip. So again, if you're just jumping in, I just got back from this amazing two or three day camping trip at, uh, at mammoth lakes in mammoth, um, which is in the Southern Sierras, I believe, you'd think I'd know. Um, anyhow, uh, so I go on this trip on this camping trip. I bring a book. This book happens to be "Man's Search For Meaning" Viktor E Frankl. I just noticed too, I'm a trip that his name is Victor E victory.Mischa Z: 01:14 I mean, how great is that? I cannot believe I've never noticed that before. So I bring Victor Victor's book, "Man's Search For Meaning" with me and plan on reading. Some of it I don't was absolutely not planning on reading the whole thing. But the hike and was pretty strenuous for me. It was a good, you know, eight miles plus, uh, you know, two or 3000 elevation gain. And you've got a 25 pound pack on 25 pound plus pack on. And so that can be...it was hard on my knees. I'll just be honest with you. So I was definitely knees were sore on day two. So day one, we hike up there. It's beautiful. Great hike. Just unbelievable. We pass, um, a few lakes. Let's see if I can remember what they are. Ghost lake, I think was one of them. I doesn't matter. We ended up at the third lake, however, iceberg lake iceberg lake, which I've talked about and we got to jump in iceberg lake and then lay on the granite, which is just so good. If anybody, if you have an opportunity to jump on a mountain lake that is ice cold and then dry off and heat yourself on a granite slab mother earth, it does not get much better.Mischa Z: 02:44 So the next day we were planning on doing a 10 mile hike with a little bit of elevation gained, moving on to another campsite. But my knees were pretty sore. And I talked about this on a previous episode two ago, maybe, but that I was being encouraged to hike by my camping partner, Kyle, hello, Kyle, if you're listening and Kyle was like, Hey, let's go. And I was like, I listened to my body and did the self care and was like, no, I am not going. I need a down day. And I cannot tell you what a miracle that is because oftentimes I will just push through it, take some Advil, you know, charge, make it happen, like be strong. And uh, I said, you know what? The universe is telling me, "listen to your body". And I did. And thank goodness I did. So that gave me a full day to hang out at Iceberg lake, which is about, I think it's, you know, nine or 10 it's.Mischa Z: 04:00 I think it was 9,800 feet elevation God's country. It is so beautiful. Just this lake is surrounded on all sides by these massive granted peaks, you know? Um, and then the outlet is where you hike up. That's where the, the, the, um, the lake, you know, turns... The river, drains down, you know, drains out of, out of this out of, I don't know how if I'm saying this right, but it's just beautiful. And the solitude is incredible and the quiet is incredible. And, um, you're far enough out there that a couple people you run into. Um, and so I had an opportunity to dive into "Man's Search For Meaning ",Viktor Frankl and what an intense, heavy, deep book, um, you know, ultimately Viktor Frankl, Viktor Frankl was, and, uh, the death camps during world war II, you know, he started at Auschwitz and then went to three others.Mischa Z: 05:13 So for three years, and he somehow survived and, you know, hence Man's Search For Meaning. And he, you know, he defines his logo therapy, L O G O therapy. I'm not sure if I'm saying that right, but logo, I believe is Latin for "meaning". I believe it is. Anyway. I'll dig back in. I'm not necessarily, this episode is not necessarily to tell you about the meaning of the book, but just to say, I had an opportunity to read the book. And at the same time I need to start. Part of my project is to go on to you...pick three to five groups. Facebook groups that have combined a combined audience of a hundred thousand people. And then you start every day, you do a value post. So a post that adds value to each of those groups, your three to five groups. And every day you answer, it's either two or three questions.Mischa Z: 06:23 Um, question threads, there is three, three questions per group. So to build that habit, those are next steps for me. And so "Man's Search For Meaning”. I just dog-eared so many pages. There were so many great, great sentences and bits of awareness. So my thought was, and hopefully I'll be able to turn some of those inspirations into podcast episodes, but for now I'll finish my thought. It was to take those sentences and create a value post for the group. So what's the sentence. Perhaps I could relate it to an experience of my life in my life. Bam, there's a value post. And that was very exciting to me to be like, oh yes, here's a way here is a way that you can do these daily posts, add value, hopefully create some inspiration or some, you know, some contemplation for people. And then hopefully you inspire them and you inspire them enough that they come look at your Facebook page.Mischa Z: 07:39 Hey, where, who is this guy? Mischa, that's talking about giving us these value bobs as what you'd call them. So that's the theory. So you have that to look forward. You have you get to hear me talk about my progress with that. Does this, as a way to build an audience and to suss out your perfect customer, does it work? Is it effective? And, uh. I thought it was really cool that I listened to my body, held the boundary with my camping friend. Kyle. Stayed at the campsite, just meditated and rested and relaxed and detached and read "Man's Search For Meaning" and had all this great inspiration. So there you have it. I think that's enough for me. I hope I've closed the loop. I'll open another loop. The other loop is next episode. I'm going to talk about how in "Man's Search For Meaning" part of what Victor Frankel's theory is, is that meaning is what drives man, and not pleasure, as Freud says, but meaning. Having meaning and he breaks down meaning and all sorts of cool ways, three ways in particular actually. And they don't have to be...You can still find meaning in the face of your executioner. Which is one thing which is pretty wow. Right? That's what he's talking about. I'm not going to claim to have no that, um, but he does talk about that. But he talks about being of service as one of the ways, you know? Um, and I'm going to tell you how I got to be of service literally after I finished the book. So fun. All right. Love to all. Peace out.

Society, individual purpose and the undiscovered self

Welcome to Finance and Fury. I'd like to start a serious conversation about the individual self and our drive for meaning within society. This relates to economics and by extension, personal finance – as economics focuses on how the individual incentives drive decision making – all with the aim to maximise our utility – i.e. gain the maximum benefit – which could mean we driven by money, freedom, or some other purpose - What drives the way that we act? - so in this episode, we will be adding a philosophical element to this topic – this episode isn't about the property or share market, so if that is why you tune in - feel free to not listen – the purpose of this episode is more abstract – and aims to help those who want to help themselves through making sense of the current state of the world and prospering through this – To do this – we will draw on some of the teaching of the greatest philosophers through history – like John Locke, Carl Jung, and Viktor Frankel to name a few – this will be a bit of a longer episode – as there is a lot to unpack If you are still with us - To start with, I am going to read a passage from Carl Jung's book, The Undiscovered Self – 1958 – then we will break this down to unpack the individual in relation to society and the state “Instead of the concrete individual, you have the names of organizations and, at the highest point, the abstract idea of the State as the principle of political reality. The moral responsibility of the individual is then inevitably replaced by the policy of the State. Instead of moral and mental differentiation of the individual, you have public welfare and the raising of the living standard. The goal and meaning of individual life (which is the only real life) no longer lie in the individual development but in the policy of the State, which is thrust upon the individual from outside and consists in the execution of an abstract idea which ultimately tends to attract all life to itself. The individual is increasingly deprived of the moral decision as to how he should live his own life, and instead is ruled, fed, clothed, and educated as a social unit, accommodated in the appropriate housing unit, and amused in accordance with the standards that give pleasure and satisfaction to the masses. The rulers, in their turn, are just as much social units as the ruled, and are distinguished only by the fact they are specialized mouthpieces of State doctrine. They do not need to be personalities capable of judgment, but thoroughgoing specialists who are unusable outside their line of business. State policy decides what shall be taught and studied.” There is so much to unpack in this one paragraph alone – The first few lines look at once individual responsibility has been replaced by the policy of a Government – the differences of the individual are no longer celebrated in society – it is used to create an us versus them mentality – when a government have two primary parties, politics becomes a sceptical, like a game of rugby, AFL, cricket, NFL – there are two teams competing for the win – and each side has their supporters – and each side has some level of animosity towards the other – often not much, but you can see this spill over – like in some south American football (i.e. soccer) games Once we get to this point – there is no need to focus on the individuals rights or happiness – as we are supporting a team – “goal and meaning of individual life (which is the only real life) no longer lie in the individual development but in the policy of the State” – therefore, the state (or government) tries to replace your own individual goals with public policy – in a utilitarian way - this then leads into the state focusing on their own definition of public welfare and the raising of the living standard – which requires increased authority of the state The desire to increase public welfare and raise the living standard is a noble goal – but unfortunately centralised powers have a hard time actually achieving this goal – and throughout human history – I cannot find any examples where the state, when given extreme powers to achieve this goal, have been able to deliver in the long term – otherwise the USSR, Cuba, North Korea, Cambodia, Vietnam, Venezuela and the list goes on, would have been able to economically outperform countries with less centralised state control – and provide their populations with higher living standards This ties back to the statement “the policy of the State, which thrust upon the individual from outside and consists in the execution of an abstract idea which ultimately tends to attract all life to itself” – the state tells you how you should live in an abstract idea – which through social reinforcement leads to a trend, where public consciousness starts to sway towards this end – this is where sentiments such as eat the rich come from Remember – the economy is the sum of our individual economic output – so the more power the individual has to better their lives, the better the society and at large the economy become – plus, one single policy cannot be utilitarian by definition, as every individual has different goals and desires, so there is no one size fits all style of policy making Jung's insights here do seem profound – given this book was written in the 50s – but in reality, we as humans have not changed in this time period – and the same governmental forces existed throughout Jung's life - Remember – people were drafted to go half around the world to fight wars in WW1, WW2, Korean and Vietnam wars – over 16m men were drafted in the US alone in these wars We actually have access to more information than ever – through the internet and platforms like youtube - in response – governments and state media needs to try even harder to shut down any alternative information But just like a sports team – people choose who to believe, follow and root for The one major difference between Society now compared to a few decades ago – we have legislation on legislation – which has created a more complex society and economy – this legislation has had one demonstrable outcome – increased government control through more and more laws – there was a book written over a decade ago – Three felonies a day – which covers people unknowing breaking laws – the fact that the average person can break three laws every day and not realise this is a sign of the over legislation of society Does any of this really matter? Yes and no Yes – these laws that politicians put in place are the framework in which we live – and if you put all of your hopes into the state solving your problems, you might be less likely to take agency over your own life – to find your purpose and solve your own problems No – Because we can try our best to work withing that framework – the more the overreach of the state – the more it just requires additional effort to overcome the laws – legally to prosper – but the important thing is to at least retain some semblance of freedom to make choices that can benefit ourselves – What becomes the issue here is the ability to make choices all depend on rights If society reaches a point where there is a loss of the induvial self – and loss of the individual rights – then what do we have as a society?   This is where we move on to John Locke – with the concepts of your rights – you might call the human rights, I prefer to think of them as natural rights Rights are a concept meant to help us define the ethical limits of human behaviour in society In other words - what types of interactions with other people are and are not acceptable? But rights are based around an individual and societal moral agency – if we are going to make any claims about what is right and wrong in society, the individual must be able to choose how to act – this is the very nature of free will – the individual should be allowed to act in their own best interest – as long as this does not infringe on another person – i.e. I cannot steal from you There is where the individual should be held accountable for their actions if it impacts on the rights over others This is the distinguishing factor between natural (aka negative rights) and positive rights – natural rights are those that protect the individual – nobody has the right to take your property, or coerce you into any decision – but positive rights by their definition require that you are infringing on the natural rights of someone else This is where the original concept of Rights was distinct from privileges or entitlements – it's not about demanding free stuff at the other persons expense (which would be a positive rights) – it is about how we act to better our own situation in life and in response, how we expect others to act – positive rights are a relatively new concept which take away the agency of the individual – as positive rights need to be enforced by an expanding state – i.e. through legislation as enforcement At the very base of natural rights - We should all have the expectations to not be assaulted or murdered, or stolen from or enslaved by other individuals Also – we have the expectations to not be coerced by other people – or imprisoned without cause – in other words, we should be secure in our property rights and sovereign selves The corollary to all of this is the responsibility to uphold those same rights for everyone else – these are all the basis for natural rights – Functioning societies all over the world depend on people and institutions respecting individual rights – I did an episode a few weeks ago on freedoms – and how we have been lucky for quite some time – but when a state and by extension, the society is lead into not respecting individual rights – the more volatile society gets and the poorer the population becomes over time It comes back to moral agency and responsibility – rights holding agent is both capable of demanding their rights be respected – but also demonstrated the ability to respect those same rights in others This is something that every human can do – even if we don't always do this – But Rights are specific to human beings – without the concept of the self and our natural rights, we are no different from animals Animals can't have genuine rights - they are neither capable of respecting the rights of others – nor are they held personally accountable for their actions when they are in breach of another's rights No polar bear or shark will ever be arrested or put on trial for murdering and eating a seal to survive No seagull will be put into a prison for sealing your chips at the beach – as this is the easiest way for them to find food - On top of this – they wouldn't comprehend it if they were – As a society – we need to respect the moral agency of everyone – we sustain society through voluntary interactions – this is reduced at every stage when governments increase their control over our lives Imagine that we have a government that promises us that they will pay for our food and housing – in this situation we would want to have all the pros and none of the cons – live in a house that we choose and eat the food that we want – in reality this isn't the case – as the government will only spend $100 per week to cover your housing and $50 to cover food costs Let's say that we do get to spend all we went on housing and food at the tax payers expense – even though in reality this is never the case, as if nobody is working where does this tax based come from? - but let's say in a hypothetical situation, we can live in a mansions and have all of our desires paid for - all of these pros can actually lead to some major cons for us as individuals – if life becomes so easy that you no longer need to stive for anything, or have a purpose to wake up every morning – essentially removing any meaning to your life, does this help or hinder you? It is hard to have any meaning in life if all your desires are now met – there will be outliers who still want to forge their own path – but this is likely a minority of the population at large In the situation where the government is in complete control – we often see populations become apatetic and drift into nihilism – this is a perfect situation for the totalitarian state The state can highjack our inbuilt desire to follow the path of least resistance – naturally we want to get what we want in the easiest way possible – without governments, this leads to innovation and an ingrained purpose to prosper on our own – but with governments – we can be provided what appears to be the easy way out - but if we always take the easy way out, does this make us stronger or devoid us of purpose? Without the right to make our own choices and have the freedom to fail – individual purpose can be diminished further   With this framework in mind - How do we find meaning in the worst of situation - Viktor Frankl's philosophy of Logotherapy can help to answer this – he himself lived through a number of concentration camps under the Nazi, where he was separated from his wife where she died, plus his parents and brother – he came up with this theory in the camps where people could still find meaning and happiness – Logotherapy is based on the premise that the human person is motivated by a “will to meaning,” an inner pull to find a meaning in life. The following three principles are the basics of logotherapy: Life has meaning under all circumstances, even the most miserable ones. Our main motivation for living is our will to find meaning in life. We have freedom to find meaning in what we do, and what we experience, or at least in the stand we take when faced with a situation of unchangeable suffering. Frankl wrote extensively on discovering meaning – and the importance of suffering and sacrifice According to Frankl, "We can discover meaning in life in three different ways: by creating a work or doing a deed; by experiencing something or encountering someone; by the attitude we take toward unavoidable suffering" and that "everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances" This is where finding work that you find fulfilling, which can also provide you a monetary compensation is important for two reasons – gives you purpose but also, the path to create your own financial freedom – By no means does this mean that life will be easy every day – this is against the point – the point is to find some purpose in life, whether this is doing a trade, or some service role in society which you can earn a living – then work towards your end goal of generating enough in material wealth to become self-sufficient – where you now have the choice to continue working – if it bring you fulfilment -then most people continue to work You can also find meaning through building strong relationships within your community If someone finds meaning through certain actions which are promoted by governments – where the government choose to use their final freedom i.e. things like universal basic income – the individuals attitude towards a certain situation can be coerced into agreeing with the government – then their individuality can be said to no longer exist, but simply follow the collective doctrine – but ironically at the same time, this individual will find meaning in this – even though this stance is antithetical to their own self interest in the long term – Frankl also noted the barriers to humanity's quest for meaning in life. He warns against "...affluence, hedonism, and materialism..." – if someone is purely living for money, with no higher purpose of enjoyment of their job, providing for their family, or some other form of fulfilment in what they do, such as providing a public benefit, then the quest for meaning in life can be stunted This comes back to Jung - “Instead of moral and mental differentiation of the individual, you have public welfare and the raising of the living standard. The individual is increasingly deprived of the moral decision as to how he should live his own life, and instead is ruled, fed, clothed, and educated as a social unit, accommodated in the appropriate housing unit, and amused in accordance with the standards that give pleasure and satisfaction to the masses.” Frankl observed that it may be psychologically damaging when a person's search for meaning is blocked by governments, or even other people. Positive life purpose and meaning has either been associated with strong religious beliefs, membership in groups or a community, dedication to a cause, life values, as well as having clear goals. In this framework - maturity emphasizes a clear comprehension of your life's purpose, having a direction to follow, and intentionality which contributes to the feeling that life is meaningful. To give an example from your own personal situation - I have found a transition in my own life over the years – from being very materialistic and monetarily focused, to my family needs and community focused – strengthen relationships with neighbours and build a community I've been thinking about this over the past few years – if someone was living off the gird, fully self-sufficient, as well as being in a community of others – the government would need to really totalitarian to affect them – this is why I have been designing my own life in this way – to become more self-sufficient as possible – not reply on supply chains as much as possible – but this is hard – it is much easier to go to WOW or Coles to buy broccoli and sweet potato compared to growing this yourself – I know that it will take decades to build towards these goals, but that gives some long term purpose, something to work towards This is the beauty of this philosophy – everyone can come to their own conclusion – what is correct for you and what matters – it is all about finding your own path and purpose in life – I would recommend anyone interested read the works of Jung, Frankl and Locke In summary - The point of this episode is to help find your own purpose in life – create your own leaning in life – build goals and desires – then use your ability as an individual to create your vision in life Find your own meaning – do not let others or the state dictate to you what you should do Don't become nihilistic or let the state of the world get you down – if you are unhappy, explore these feelings and look at where you would like your life to go Come up with a game plan to achieve your ideal outcome Thank you for listening to today's episode.

Undefended Dharma with Mary Stancavage

 Often we latch on to the search for meaning, happiness or bliss and think they are "out there" waiting to be found or achieved. Drawing heavily on the work of Viktor Frankl, Mary reminds us that there is only this moment and we are asked to respond appropriately to each experience we encounter. Building a foundation of love, kindness and integrity allows us to respond wisely and for the benefit of all. Recorded Sept. 18, 2021 in the virtual world

Our perspective, then, is a key to contentment and perhaps the one possession over which we have utter control, and which no person or event can take from us as long as we are here. We alone have access to our perspective. We alone create it, foster it and manifest it. In this moment, I choose to focus on the positive aspects of my current situation, or the negative; that choice determines my experience. Period.

En el programa Chayo Contigo la Dra. Rosario Busquets nos platica de:Riesgos. "Algunas personas justifican asumir los riesgos que tomamos porque a veces decidimos con prisa". Es importante analizar la circunstancia en la que nos encontramos; si reaccionamos por impulso, es muy posible que estemos asumiendo un riesgo mucho mayor. No hay que confundir la rapidez con la precipitación con la que hacemos algo. Decide tú el nivel de riesgo que quieres asumir.¿Cómo vencer la adversidad? El Dr. Viktor Frankl decía que es importante dar propósito y significado a la adversidad y a las cosas que suceden, dar el significado adecuado, libre de prejuicios. No hay que evitar la adversidad, hay que gestionarla.Me separé de mi esposo porque mi suegra interfiere mucho en nuestro matrimonio y en el desarrollo de nuestra paternidad. ¿Cómo puedo establecer límites sanos con esta persona y cómo puedo hacer para que mi hija mayor entienda que este es un conflicto que a ella no le corresponde solucionar?Tengo 17 años, cuando tenía alrededor de 1 a 4 años, vivía con mi tía y mi primo por parte de otro tío, y vivía también cerca de nosotros. Mi primo es mayor que yo y cuando jugábamos él me tocaba. Cuando crecí mi mamá y mi tía empezaron a hablarme de que nadie podía tocarme, pero yo ya me había acostumbrado a esos juegos de cierta forma; cabe mencionar que los amigos de mi primo también llegaron a tocarme. Cuando estaba en segundo de secundaria me forzó a tener relaciones sexuales con él, incluso me ofreció dinero pero me negué. Esto influyó mucho en el incremento de deseo sexual, por lo que he tenido varias parejas sexuales mayores que yo. Acudí a terapias psicológicas porque siento culpa por no hablar, por haberme dejado, pero la psicóloga me dijo que había sido solo un juego de niños, pero por alguna razón yo no lo siento así. Ahora me siento como una basura que solo debería funcionar para satisfacer un deseo tan carnal como lo es el sexo, espero me puedas ayudar.No sé qué hacer con mi pareja. Creo que estoy en una relación tóxica. Hace 9 años me separé de él porque según sus hijos yo les hacía caras; tiempo después regresamos a vivir juntos, pero él es muy controlador e inclusive me ha llegado a pegar. No le he dicho a nadie esto porque me da vergüenza, pero mi mamá me ha dicho que si no estoy a gusto me regrese a vivir con ella. No sé qué hacer.Hace dos años conocí a un chico, todo iba muy bien, sin embargo, tuvimos relaciones y mi mamá nos descubrió, por lo que él decidió irse dejándome con todo el problema. Ahora nuevamente regresó y me buscó para pedirme perdón y arreglar las cosas conmigo, pero mis papás no quieren saber nada de él. No sé qué hacer.

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

“So you were born to feel ‘nice'? Instead of doing things and experiencing them? Don't you see the plants, the birds, the ants and spiders and bees going about their individual tasks, putting the world in order, as best they can? And you're not willing to do your job as a human being? Why aren't you running to do what your nature demands?” — Marcus Aurelius One of the toughest things in life is to work at a job we don't like. There are plenty of factors that can lead to job satisfaction. Many of them are outside of our control, but there are some that aren't, and those are the most important ones because they can lead to true job satisfaction, and maybe to finding your purpose in life.
