On Today's Episode:

Being in a romantic relationship can go from feeling like an incredible high to something totally frustrating. You look at your partner and wonder what’s wrong with them, why can’t they understand what you’re saying, and why do they do things that drive you crazy?

Often, relationships go south because both of the people in the relationship have things to work through and have expectations of the other person being able to work around all of their baggage and trauma without much communication of what’s actually going on. Jay Shetty has lived the life of a monk, and as a life coach, podcaster, speaker and best selling author, he’s been able to bring his learnings and his experience to people around the world.

His latest book, 8 Rules of Love: How to Find, It Keep It, and Let It Go addresses what it looks like to figure out love for ourselves and bring that into every kind of relationship we have.

In this conversation with Tom, Jay talks about the things we accept as currency of love because we haven’t defined and truly understood or experienced love with ourselves first. Sitting with yourself, listening and understanding your inner dialogue and self-talk is a major part of this journey to finding healthy long lasting love. How much time have you taken to yourself between relationships with yourself?

Check out Jay Shetty’s latest book, 8 Rules of Love: https://www.amazon.com/Rules-Love-How-Find-Keep/dp/1982183063

QUOTES:

“I’ve still not found a better solution to self-awareness than solitude.”

“We’ve lost the art of self-talk and self-dialogue.”

“That’s why sitting with your thoughts for 15 minutes is really hard because there’s nothing to numb it.”

“If walk into a relationship and you don’t know who you are, you don’t know what you need or what you want and what you want and what you’re building and what you’re creating, you’re basically going to hope that the other person is going to answer all of those questions for you, or you’re going to outsource that inadequacy to them to make you feel worthy.”

“We accept the currency of attention as love. We accept the currency of validation as love, [...] because we ourselves haven’t defined and experienced what love looks like on our own.”

On Today's Episode:

Living the good life, is pretty much at the top of everyone’s list. The problem is that nearly everyone is making decisions and acting in ways that don’t lead to their version of a good life they wish they had. To call it self-sabotage seems like an understatement. In this round of talks with Tom, we have Will, Noelle, and George digging deeper with questions about what it takes to create a good life you’re excited for every day.

After building a billion dollar unicorn company, and investing years of transparency to bring value to people, like yourself, at scale, Tom Bilyeu is very clear and direct on exactly what it takes for you to succeed at whatever level you want to aim for.

Key ideas from this episode you don’t want to miss:

Top 5 behaviors and mental traps that lead to miserable life How to let go of beliefs holding you back The trade offs of being a Jack of all trades or the master of one How to use distraction as a tool of productivity Why your life is a reflection of your choices not your circumstances.

Hearing some of these things can sting, but when you prioritize the good life over what makes you feel good right now, you take the sting and get focused on what you want, how you’ll get there, and getting relentlessly obsessed with taking massive actions everyday until you get ther.

QUOTES:

“Recognize that you are a deeply flawed individual that is holding yourself back, that your life is a reflection entirely of your choices and not your circumstances, and if you’re not happy with that that means you’re doing something wrong.”

“I remind myself in business all the time, my current skill set has already taken me as far as it’s going to take me, and so if I want to go farther I have to get better. But if you don’t believe that you can get better, then you won’t put in the energy and effort into getting better.”

“If you don’t have a massive amount of resilience you are really in trouble.”

“The act of going ham is so intoxicating, it’s so fun, that it is the juice.”

“People underestimate the complexity of a habit.”

“You need a maniacal focus, you need to be lasered in on one thing and you do it to the abstraction of everything else and you do it obsessively to the point where everything else in your life ideally is falling apart…”

“Ultimately my advice to people is to chase fulfillment.”

“That is what self awareness is, you can finally see yourself the way other people see you.”

“Rules, values, and desire are wildly underutilized.”

“Obsession will hurt and it will be unhealthy unless you realize that you can get better…”

“Love trumps everything I’ve been through in my life.”

“My marriage is great because we work on it every single day.”

On Today's Episode:


If you’ve noticed the price of eggs recently you may have realized the pain of the recession we’re currently experiencing. Making money during a recession is not only possible, it’s often said to be the time when millionaires are made.

Graham Stephan, host of Iced Coffee Hour, successful YouTuber with over 500 million views started his journey to financial success at 18 years old at the start of the 2008 financial crisis. Years later, over 30 and more than $120 million in real estate sales later, he’s one of the biggest millennial influencers sharing his wins, failures, and experiences for everyone to learn.
In this episode Graham talks about spotting opportunities, doubling down on where you put your efforts, his approach to investing, and how he beat the market with a monkey picking investment stocks.


Before you think he had a lucky break into real estate, Graham breaks down how much free work he did to learn real estate, make money, and gain mastery.
Struggling to see opportunities when everyday feels like doomsday is normal. On this channel we find ways to struggle well, build skills, and put those skills to work and build your success brick by brick.



QUOTES:


“I just look at the data and that makes me feel safer.”


“I would work with him for free. I would do anything he wanted for free, and I just wanted to learn and any business that I brought in we would split 50/50.”


“If I’m going to be able to get the information, the contacts from somebody that’s already doing it well, all day I’d work for free!” Tom Bilyeu


“Whatever I’m spending, 10% a year I could be getting forever.”


“If all you know is failure, why would you trust the process of thinking any different?”
“The way you feel about money is highly uncorrelated to how much money you have in the bank.” Ramit Sethi


“Saving money is important, but spending money is also important, [...] if you don’t learn how to spend on things that are meaningful to you, then you can accumulate a lot of money over time, but you won’t actually know how to use it.” Ramit Sethi

Its primary objective is to help the 80 odd percent of the population that has glucose spikes everyday avoid those spikes, [...] the common consequence is fat loss but that’s not the primary angle we’re going after.”


“The amount of fat you have on your body is not a very good representation of your internal health.”


“In order to lose fat your insulin levels have to be down.”


“Starches and sugars they’re fine to eat but they’re for taste, they’re for pleasure.”


“Fiber is only really useful in the context of other bad stuff you’re eating.”


“Glucose is your body’s preferred energy source, […] Every single living thing on this planet also runs on glucose, from plants, to dolphins to humans.”

On Today's Episode:

So you want to be wealthy and financially free in 3 years? It’s not an impossible dream, stranger things have happened, but there are a few things to consider and today’s episode is food for thought on if you know the money game well enough to build your wealth and get rich in 3 years. Tom is giving a masterclass on all the things he’s learned from building multiple multi-million dollar businesses over the years. He isn’t someone that’s rich because he came from a wealthy family.

Tom is the successful entrepreneur he is because he took some hard lumps from life alone the way of figuring out that digging in his sofa for enough change to put gas in his car wasn’t the way he wanted to live. In this episode Tom is joined by David, Noelle, and George, answering their questions about what it takes to build the kind of wealth most of us believe would be amazing. Tom doesn’t claim to be a money expert, but does say with confidence that he’s learned to get very good at making money.

The key to getting rich he’s learned is understanding that this is a money game, and you can’t win the game until you learn the rules.

So, when you say you want to be rich or you think about how awesome it would be to actually start building the kind of wealth that changes the way your future grandchildren will live, make sure you become a “die hard executor” and know your risk tolerance. What does ‘being rich’ or ‘wealthy’ mean to you?

QUOTES:

“Create something that generates a lot of value.”

“I would rather get people thinking about how do I build a business that’s doing a million dollars in revenue.”

“Get partners that you don’t have to pay that you know are going to work as hard as you and they’re good at something that you’re not.”

“I don’t think you’re ever going to get what I would call wealthy in the short-term without an entrepreneurial mindset.”

“Unfortunately, a lot of people think that thinking about something moves me forward…”

“It’s not about a money mindset, it’s about mastering the game. Money is a game.”

“If you’re an entrepreneur you take risks, if you’re not don’t.”

REALITY IS AN ILLUSION: How To Design Your Dream Life & EXIT THE MATRIX | Donald Hoffman

On Today's Episode:


It’s pretty normal that you think of reality being the world around us, the tangible things you see and interact with. You probably even include and make space for how your emotions influence perception and tie that into what creates your reality.

Donald Hoffman is joining Tom for another mind-bending episode to challenge if we’re actually living in a false reality. Donald Hoffman is a cognitive scientist that has argued against reality and the limitations of spacetime.


Some questions being posed in this episode that will stretch your beyond your limits are:

  • What is beyond spacetime?
  • What is the true structure of objective reality?
  • Is it possible evolution has shaped us in a way that guides our behaviors and therefore how we see objective reality?

His idea of comparing our current reality to that of living in a virtual headset is being taken to the next few levels up and exploring the strategies we use to survive the game of life.


Check out Donald Hoffman’s latest book, The Case Against Reality, Why Evolution Hid The Truth From Our Eyes here: https://www.amazon.com/Case-Against-Reality-Evolution-Truth/dp/0393254690

Don’t miss Donald’s last conversation on Why Reality Is All A Lie: https://youtu.be/Ehz89eV5JR4


QUOTES:
“The strategies are ways to survive long enough to reproduce. So you can look at the different strategies for playing the game of life…”


“The game of life is, how do I live long enough to reproduce and how do I raise my offspring to maturity.”


“Our window on the world is trivial compared to in principle what could be available.”


“The probability is one that we don't see the truth at all.”


“Visual attention, paying attention to different objects, is our way of switching from this representation of fitness payoffs to this representation of fitness payoffs.”


“Spacetime is just our headset.”


“We’ve been short-changed. Really shallow data structure. Only three-dimensions of space, one dimension of time, we got a cheap headset.”


“Reason is telling us its limits. Reason is saying that logic itself cannot get to all truths.”
“It's better to put something on the table and get a negative reaction so we can say, what are better places to go in this.”

On Today's Episode:

Do you feel like you’re holding your life back? You envision all the cool things you could be doing if only you could make this one thing happen. If you could figure out how to execute on this brilliant idea you have that you know will change so many lives then your life could finally change for the better. The problem is you either don’t have the clarity you need to make progress, or you don’t want it badly enough, or you’re overwhelmed thinking about everything it takes to get there. A lot of people are fighting for their excuses and fighting to hold onto all the reasons people like them living in situations like this just can’t get a break.

There’s never enough time, never enough resources, and even when they start, it eventually gets boring AF. Is that you? 92% of people fail to achieve the goal they set for themselves. In this episode Tom is breaking down for you exactly what you need to know to be part of the 8% that succeed in achieving their goals. This is the most detailed and most comprehensive breakdown of how an ultra successful entrepreneur like Tom learned to optimize his time to execute at the absolute highest level, day after day after day.

Take notes and get to work on: How to use your time to transform potential into skills Push through the boredom that achieving your goals demands Define who you want to become and what rules and habits will make it possible Master consistency and follow-thru to see your goals to completion Realize that you need to fail and risk embarrassment to accomplish big goals

One of the best things you can do to set yourself up for success besides subscribing to Impact Theory is to count on strong habits and routines over motivation. Get your mindset right, cultivate the desire and beliefs that make your dreams your reality and get to work.

QUOTES:

“You have to get so specific with your goal that you know what you are doing with the next 15 minutes of your life.”

“You are only going to get what you absolutely demand of yourself.”

“If the first thing you do is pick up your phone or check your email, you are saying ‘hey, I don’t know what I should be doing with my time, so let me see what someone else thinks I should be doing with my time.”

“The truth is difficulty, boredom, struggle, pain breaks almost everyone that it touches.” “You become what you repeat.”

“You are going to have a ton of failure in your life, you have to contextualize it as the most advantageous thing that could happen to you.” “You’re setting the bar too low. Everybody’s setting the bar too low!”

“The people that set the most aggressive goals are the ones that end up achieving their goals.”

On Today's Episode:

You know why you need to develop good habits and how important it is to have the right routines in place, but knowing HOW to execute and get them in place is a different obstacle many of us stumble over. Being able to optimize your morning and evening routines are the foundation of any successful journey.

The key is they’re both linked to your mindset and desire. Get your pen and paper ready to take notes as Tom exposes all the ways for you to not just optimize your routines and habits, but also optimize your cognition, master motivation, and develop the desire you need to pull you through the tougher days ahead. There is no magic formula to success.

It’s grit, hard work, and lots of sacrifice and self-discipline. You can’t procrastinate your way there, and you can’t only sort of want it. Catch the level of energy Tom puts into sharing these strategies and tips with you, then go and execute.

QUOTES:

“When you start the day, if you get early momentum going, the rest of the day is going to follow.”

“When you’re struggling to get something done, you have a desire problem.”

“Success is a game of problem solving, but you have to really want to solve that problem.”

“When you can change state at will simply by remembering the kind of people you’re trying to help, [...] when you get tired, when you’re procrastinating, when you feel lazy you can tap into that, the desire kicks in and now you’ve got the juice you need to push forward.”

“If you’re anti-work, if you’re looking ways to be lazy, you’re going to get your lunch f*king eaten.”

“Know what you want, Build the desire to get there. Put in rules that optimize your time and get rid of any and all excuses and weak moments.”

On Today's Episode:

That feeling you grapple with every day of wanting to change, but struggling to change because 30 minutes into the day you’ve already caved and did what you said you wouldn't do, is more than paralyzing. It makes you frustrated and angry with yourself. That habit loop of disappointment leads many people to depression and living a mundane life filled with unfulfilling things you don’t even value.

Tony Robbins is a legend that needs no introduction. His work has been changing lives at scale for decades and continues to grow more powerful and more impactful every year. Tony’s Date with Destiny program was shown in a controlled study by Stanford University researchers to improve the state of mind of clinically depressed participants without the use of drugs, even well after program completion. The power of what you focus on, good or bad impacts the life you experience.

As Tony emphasizes in this conversation, a compelling future that allows you to focus on something more than yourself, something meaningful is required to start living your best life.

QUOTES:

“We can all deal with a difficult today if we have a compelling tomorrow.”

“You don’t experience life, you experience the life you focus on.”

“People have habits of what they focus on and those habits become your biochemical habits as well.”

“Identity is, who are you beyond the problem.”

“We’re drawing in information and we’re starving for wisdom.”

“A belief is a poor substitute for experience. You can tell somebody something and they can nod their head and cognitively understand it, but that’s quite different from the visceral experience of getting it in your body.”

“Most people think that hypnosis is something that people do to them, but most people are living in a hypnotized state.”

“Self-esteem is earned by yourself for yourself. It comes from doing something incredibly difficult and no one else knows it, you know it that’s why you have esteem for yourself.”

“It’s really what you link pain and pleasure to that creates lasting change.”

“The biggest drug on the planet is problems because everyone has a deep fear.” “Leverage is what makes change a must not a should.”

“We can get beyond any pain that we’ve been through if there’s something we want to serve more than ourselves.”

On Today's Episode:

The next time you’re scrolling through social media or checking out people that are more successful than you and find yourself mad, resentful, minimizing their success, or coming with excuses for your lack of success, remember this… You can achieve whatever you want in life. You can achieve your biggest, most audacious goals. But you have to start by changing the way you think. Your job is to seek out, find, and develop the right mindset for success in order to be successful. Success does not happen by accident.

Rewiring your brain and the way you think through your failures, your struggles and the obstacles you’re facing on a daily basis is more than possible. Watch this episode when you’re ready to receive the key to success.

Tom is breaking down everything from what a growth mindset is to why soothing your ego with your psychological immune system is your biggest hindrance to success.

QUOTES:

“If you want to be successful, mindset is everything.”

“At the end of the day, only execution matters.”

“Failure is the most information rich data stream on planet earth.”

“To overcome the endless parade of problems you have to have a way to take responsibility for what you can do differently to overcome those problems, [...] you want to adapt your behavior.”

“You have to constantly pour energy into your own life to make sure that you’re making progress to your own goals if you’re going to eventually achieve success.”

“A growth mindset is that you believe that your talent and intelligence are not fixed traits, that you can get better at something as you put time and energy into getting better at that thing. It’s what I call, the only belief that matters.”

“The people I have found that are the most resilient in life, they have the most intensely developed growth mindset, and that’s part of the key.”

“Don’t let yourself take on the identity of the victim even when you are victimized because it puts you in a defensive posture.”

“If you really are as good as you think then you should be able to go and build something new using that same skill set.”

On Today's Episode:

How shocking is it to think that by the time you are in your 30s and 40s that your brain is already showing signs of Alzheimer’s. There is no immediate cure, YET, but there are things we can do to protect our brains around our diet and knowledge that we can actually apply and put into action.

Max Lugavere is a wellness journalist, NY Times best-selling author and host of the Genius Life Podcast that geeks out on what it takes to get your health on point. His take on foods we should eat more of and things we should eat less of are based on science and filled with compassion.

In this information rich episode Max and Tom cover a lot of ground on everything from knowing your precursors to Alzheimers, to foods you should be eating, oils you should be avoiding, to environmental concerns you need to be aware of and more. And if you thought your dental hygiene was on point, guess again. Max may ruin your daily use of mouthwash but will help you see why you need to adopt this dental habit instead!

QUOTES:

“Alzheimer’s disease begins in the brain 30 to 40 years if not longer before the first symptom.”

“Lead your loved one to a greater vision of life, [...] you can’t do it with force and you can’t do it with aggression.”

“Whether or not you’re concerned about your risk for disease in the long term, all these things actually help you feel great in the here and now.”

“Approach these oils with great caution because they didn’t exist in the human food supply 200 years ago.”

“Who in their right mind would think that it makes sense to sterilize the oral cavity every single day? You’re supposed to have bacteria in your mouth.”

“People who consume more meat, and especially processed meat, tend to have worse health outcomes.”

“Low-fat vegetarian diets are associated with reduced testosterone. It’s not like plants don’t have a potential down-side.”

On Today's Episode:

As someone on the path of major self-growth, these conversations are key in stretching your mind, changing your beliefs, and begging you to question how you want to live your life and exist in a rapidly changing world. Artificial intelligence has become more front and center in the past few weeks with A.I. art and AI generated images becoming virtually inescapable.

What can you do to thrive during these massive changes? Yuval Noah Harari is a historian and the bestselling author of the books that include Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind. His book for kids, Unstoppable Us, Volume 1: How Humans Took Over the World is a NY Times Best Book of 2022. Yuval is also a professor of History at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and the co-founder of the social impact company Sapienship.

In this episode the conversation gets deep between the need for your mental flexibility, how much narrative is influencing the world we experience, and the best way you can embrace change.

“It is much worse psychologically to feel worthless than to feel exploited” -Yuval Noah Harari

Check out his latest book, Unstoppable Us:How Humans Took Over the World: https://www.amazon.com/Unstoppable-Us-Humans-Took-World-ebook/dp/B09S8VC1JB

QUOTES:

“We have to keep learning and keep changing throughout our lives otherwise we will be left behind.”

“Old jobs disappear, but new jobs emerge. The real difficult thing will be the transition.” “Almost all people are liberal. Even the conservatives…”

“The ideological differences are small on the ground, but they are very big in people’s imagination. People have fantasies about what the other side is planning to do which are completely divorced from reality.”

“Fantasies often shape history and cause people to do terrible things.” “Instead of leaders who are trying to heal the national community you see leaders that try to destroy it and get power by kind of leading just one tribe.”

“I think the big narrative is the biological narrative that we are all homo sapiens, that we all have the same basic experiences, [...] these are things that are common to all humans.”

“A sacred place is a place plus a story about the place, and this is at the bottom of most conflicts in the world.”

“On the level of the body, we can relate to every other human being in the world because biologically we are all the same. What creates this huge distance between us is the fantasies that the mind imagines and produces.”

On Today's Episode:

Life is brutally tough. You will be tested over and over with unexpected obstacles coming your way. You have to decide how you will respond. Will you give up and buckle under pressure? Or, will you build your mindset to withstand any challenge?

If you're ready to OWN your life and become unstoppable, this is the class for you to watch. What you're watching is a preview from one of my Workshops inside Impact Theory University - you can register and get free access to Part 2 at http://ownyourlife.impacttheory.com

If you’ve been perplexed on how Tom is able to go so hard day after day, week after week, you’ve come to the right place. Chasing after the wrong things, and not knowing what to value is leading you away from your goals. Being able to seek out your inadequacies and know where you are weakest, while pushing your boundaries is the only way to become unstoppable. If it’s unfathomable success you’re after, then it’s these basic principles that you’re going to need to reach the next level.

Build the Ultimate Value Stack
  1. Self Reliance - no one is coming to save you - be in control of your own life - hold yourself to a standard
  2. Self Respect - have integrity and know you can trust yourself
  3. Growth - being stagnant should bother you - push yourself and improve 4. Resilience - toughen the fuck up and don’t tolerate weakness in yourself

QUOTES:
“Life is fucking hard. That is just a truth, but you have a choice, all of us have a choice, whether we're going to be weak, or we're going to be strong.” [1:35]

“The punchline to life is not success, it's not fame, it's not money, it's not accolades. It is very simple. It's brain chemistry, a.k.a. Fulfillment.” [4:01]

“I didn't believe that I could rise up, and because I didn't believe I could rise up, the only thing I could think about was tearing other people down.” [5:46]

“If you're blaming other people for the state of your life, you are fucked my friend, because you're pointing at the wrong person. You're looking in the wrong place.” [9:52]

“It is not just about doing what you're good at, it's about figuring out what do I need to get good at in order to achieve my goal.” [12:14]

“Decide what your values are going to be. Realize that they're malleable, and then build [...] the ultimate value stack for becoming unstoppable.” [19:57]

“When you know that you're acting weak, you've got to call yourself out, you've got to say I don't allow that in my life.” [22:19] “Stop asking how little you can get away with and start asking one of the most powerful questions in the universe, which is how much can you bear?” [31:54]

Being a high achiever comes with many challenges and there are so many insights into how to optimize for success with your time, your performance, and even your neurochemistry. When you can get into a state of flow, the tasks that require your focus to achieve higher levels of success become almost effortless.

Steven is NY Times bestselling author with two Pulitzer Prize nominations, and over a dozen books all worth reading. In this episode, Steven shares his research and insights into The Art of Impossible. From unpacking the habit of inferiority to why “Never Trust Dopamine” is a thing, Steven knocks is out of the park on how flow state, goal setting, and the pursuit of greatness are all tied into achieving the unachievable. Stop settling for mediocre and start moving towards your own personal greatness.

“We’ve gotten used to performing at a mediocre level and that’s what we expect, [...] when you level set at mediocre it is going to take extraordinary amounts of motivation and energy to get up to super expert.”

“Self-awareness is an art form.”

“Psychology is a metaphor for neurobiology.”

“Passion is literally the intersection of multiple curiosities.”

“Flow follows focus, it only shows up when all of our attention is in the right here right now.” “We are goal directed creatures. We are either shaped by our fears or our goals.”

“Goal setting is both about driving motivation and filtering reality. Our goals filter our reality.”

“As a journalist, you’re taught that the best room to be in is the room where you’re the dumbest.” “Being in a good mood is one of the best hacks for creativity.”

“When you’re in flow, risk taking is up and long term planning is down, [...] have big dreams in flow, but verify them in reality.”

“I’m not saying don’t learn the weird ass sh*t, but know this is the line and once you step over this line it’s an open question.”

What's the secret sauce to accomplishing big dreams? They feel impossible and so far off, if you’re dreaming big enough, they scare the pants off of you and anxiety and overwhelm creeps in.

Steve Aoki is a musical legend that needs no introduction, but if you follow him he’s everywhere, in every genre of music, and in everything doing it all. How is he able to do so much and show up across so many wildly different audiences?

“Most people stay in their zone cause it’s comfortable and it’s safe and that’s where success is once you build the success. When you start venturing out you start penetrating those walls and exposing yourself vulnerabilities which could tear your business down…” [8:39]


“It’s hard to jump off of something that already works.” [15:40]

On Today's Episode:

Experiencing the highest level of success also means experiencing as many failures as it takes to reach your goals. It may be uncomfortable, but making mistakes and failing is part of the game. Wallowing in the disappointment we can all feel after failing something, does not take you any closer to succeeding.

Tom is sharing the perspective he’s developed and refined to become the entrepreneur that he is. Becoming capable of executing at elite levels of success comes with every failure and mistake you make along the way. Failure will teach you all that you need to know to succeed, but you have to be willing to make the mistakes without sitting in disappointment.

“Success is the ability to go from failure to failure to failure, without a loss of enthusiasm.” - Winston Churchill

“Failure is not proof that you're a loser. Failure is the process by which you become better [...] when you fail, why would you beat yourself up over it? It's the nature of progress itself, there is no way to get better without failing.” [3:06]

“Don't allow yourself to get bogged down in a path, which should be easily discarded, but don't give up easily on a mission, which should be far more firm.” [10:37]

“If you want to achieve anything significant in your life, you have to understand that it's a game of attrition, [...] Most people quit. It isn't that the people that end up winning never fail. It's that they didn't quit when they failed.” [11:14]

On Today's Episode:

How many times have you wondered what will it actually take for you to have the unrelenting willpower you need to have a killer day, to have an epic week, or have a mind-blowing year?

Could Tom’s secrets to success get you there? Possibly, but only if you listen then jump into action. Anything less is spiritual entertainment, and that’s not going to help you change one thing in your life.

This episode is going to remove 99% of the reasons you have for not executing at the highest level and give you the permission you’ve needed to mess up. If you're looking for answers on how to win the game of life, you’re in the right place and it’s not what you think it should be.

You have to learn to pay attention to your neurochemistry and realize that how you react to your wins and failures, even when they’re catastrophic, really matters. Opportunities are everywhere and possibilities are endless if you’re willing to go after what you want and develop the kind of willpower that puts most people to shame.

QUOTES:

“Money is not going to solve the problem that exists between your ears.” [1:09]

“Break the tie that you have between outcome and worth.” [3:27]

“When shit really goes f*cking wrong, that’s the time to laugh.” [10:30]

“What we have is the ability to change. We’re crazy f*cking adaptive.” [25:57]

On Today's Episode:

There are some of you that can quickly move on, take the logical information, and not get attached to the emotional part of a situation. There are also some of you that have a hard time not thinking about the bad things that happened. For you, it’s hard to move past a situation because you are tied to the emotion as if it just happened, and don’t move on as easily.

What if your genetics had just as much to do with your response or lack of response as did the trauma and external factors that we typically attribute to our personality?

The secrets that our genetics reveal about us as a species and as individuals is what Kashif Khan, founder and CEO of the DNA Company is joining us to discuss. He gave a Tedx Talk, How Genetics is About to Change the Way You Parent, and has been part of the largest genetic research to date.

In your genetics are the links between your ability to be a high achiever, having depression and how quickly you can process trauma and other emotional situations. 3 things that Kashif warns us are part of what’s aging us and causing poor health is inflammation, lack of detoxification, and poor oxidation.

This episode is about the importance of knowing the context you are designed for so that you can thrive.

QUOTES:

“The answer isn’t, here’s what everybody should do, it’s more that the answer is personalized.” [1:01]

“That belief that 99% of people won’t take the pill, it’s that 99% of people were given the prescription in a way that doesn’t align to their thinking. They will all take the pill if you understand how they think.” [27:56]

“The context you’re in will determine your result.” [31:38]

“This is the misconception that your genes are your destiny. They are your destiny if you don’t understand them and you’re doing everything wrong, and for the most part we aren’t designed for our current reality.” [38:51]

“Of the 30,000 some odd genes in your body, 10%[ of your genes require vitamin D to function.” [39:40]

“66% of women will die on their first cardiovascular event with zero symptoms or warning signs, [...] because of the cofactor of estrogen toxicity [49:50]

“Your DNA is telling you who you are in your brain function, your cardiovascular function, [...] The things you’re doing are going to pull you in directions, one way or the other. When it comes to mood and behavior you have to be in the right context.” [1:39:15]

On Today's Episode:

Feeling disconnected from your close relationships, suffering from total boredom, lack of motivation, and missed opportunities all point away from the success you really want. Being disengaged and distracted when you’re trying to change your life is a recipe for disappointment.

So are you dealing with burnout or being lazy?

It’s easy to mistake laziness for burnout and vice versa, but in this episode, Tom reveals why you’re probably further away from experiencing true burnout than you think.

Two things possibly causing true burnout is:
Not dealing with your biology correctly
Pursuing something you don’t actually care about.

The truth is your ability to determine the difference between being lazy and crashing from burnout is anchored to your ability to find success at the highest level you’re aiming for.

Tom, even at his level of mastery and ultra success, continues to battle with laziness on a daily basis. In this episode he’s giving you the masterclass to help you understand that your mind is messing with you, and there are ways to break out of it.

Tom’s 3 Tips to avoid burnout and laziness:

Always optimize your body (and your health)
Do not trust your emotions
Hold yourself to the highest standard

QUOTES:

“If you want to burnout fast in your life, pursue something that you don't care about.” [0:40]

“You need to be living the life that you actually want to live, not living the life that people tell you you’re supposed to want, [...] living a life that gives you more energy than it takes.” [3:30]

“You are always going to have the compulsion to be lazy that isn’t necessarily burnout. It’s often mistaken for burnout because we all psychologically want to give into that laziness.” [16:18]

“Most people accept a low standard for themselves.” [24:20]

“Hold yourself to a high a** standard, you will dazzle yourself with what you’re capable of.” [25:05]

“I had to build my respect around showing up everyday and demanding more of myself.” [28:46]

“You’re burning out psychologically not physiologically.” [47:51]

On Today's Episode:

Living your life with meaning and purpose can sound like wishful thinking. You want to know that you matter and that what you put your energy and effort into, whether it's work, relationships, or building something, that it also matters.

Gabor Mate is known for expertise on addiction, trauma, and childhood development. His recent book, The Myth of Normal, looks intently into Western culture and how far we actually are from living a meaningful and purposeful life. The trauma you experienced and the illness you suffer with are all connected, and tied to understanding who you really are, and what it will take to unlock life’s meaning for you.

This episode is a deep dive into the mind of Gabor Mate that you’ll want to take time to unpack to really explore your truth, what your experiences were and how they continue to show up in your life today.

QUOTES:

“What really lights my fire is truth. I just want to know the truth, whatever that is.” [7:59]

“There’s lots of facts out there, but truth is much larger than facts. It’s integrating the facts in a picture of reality.” [13:17]

“A life without truth is not a meaningful life.” [17:59]

“Emotions are not separable from our physiology. The nervous system and immune system, [...] they’re all one apparatus. When something happens in one area something happens in the other area as well.” [51:10

“Our thoughts are in the lead, so whatever our thoughts tell us is the reality that we see, so essentially with our minds we create the world.” [1:08:39]

“In this culture the norm is neither healthy nor is it natural, in fact, the norm is making us sick.” [1:55:23]

“Giving and receiving and connection are values and people gain wealth by giving not by gathering and taking from others.” [2:21:06]

On Today's Episode:

There are lies about money that you believe to be true right now that are dictating so many aspects about the way you live and the relationships you have. When was the last time you stopped to think about your money beliefs?

If you’re like most people, chances are you’ve never given it so much as a thought and you’ve been working, earning, and managing (or mismanaging) money for years.

Ramit Sethi is a personal finance expert that’s been teaching millions of people how to be rich and live a rich life. In this conversation he doubles down on the need to understand money, and learn how to keep your investments simple. There is no room for your emotions when investing your money and building wealth, and it’s a truth most people need to hear several times.

Some basic money ideas you can take away from this episode with Ramit is that investing doesn’t have to be complicated and you don’t need to buy a house to build wealth. You can get wealthy with investing, but it’s going to take time.
Simplicity - simplify your investments and manage your risk

QUOTES:

“The problem with money is that we’re told all these things and because we don’t really understand how it works we just accept it.” [1:02]

“By the time people turn forty the number one thing they’re worried about is money, and yet the vast majority of people have never read a single book on personal finance.” [2:15]

“If you want to become confident with money you have to be competent.” [2:56]

“What savvy investors do is they do not try to make individual bets. In their portfolio they just acknowledge, ‘I have no idea’…” [10:39]

“People’s thinking calcifies into dogma, and so they think they got it, they think they’ve got everything figured out.” [14:12] Tom Bilyeu

“There are a lot of simple ways that you can make a lot of money, it just takes time.” [28:52]

On Today's Episode:

I’m teaching a LIVE workshop later this November to teach you how to make ANY goal stick.
Look - the truth is, most people never come close to achieving their goals - and it’s not because they’re not smart enough, or not worthy. It’s because they aren’t using the right strategies to stick to doing the work that’s going to lead to their success. Make no mistake, achieving goals is a PROCESS - that means you can learn it and get better at it. To join me and register your seat, go to live.impacttheory.com.

If you’ve ever spent even a moment kicking yourself and wondering why you get stuck in negative thoughts, or wondering why everyone else seems to have the success you don’t have, this is for you. If succeeding came naturally, the self help industry wouldn’t be a $10 billion plus gold mine, and you’d be successful already. Tom is breaking down 5 simple strategies you can actually implement today to start training your brain for success. Forget what you thought you knew about being successful. If you are not mentally prepared for the setbacks, the anxiety, and the difficulties that come along with the cost of just living, then you’re setting yourself up for failure by default.

SHOW NOTES:

0:00 | Introduction
0:26 | Shift Your Negative Mindset
9:12 | Accelerate Your Learning
11:27 | Control The Dopamine Addiction
19:49 | Go Hard Or Soft on Yourself?
23:09 | Get Over Yourself

QUOTES:

“Start some sort of visualization of things going well, instead of going wrong. You only get anxious when you imagine things going wrong” [8:40]

“You have to refine your rules, so that you can be very clear about what you do and what you don't do.” [13:25]

“Once you understand that dopamine is actually triggering the desire to pursue it, then you're more likely to be able to break that pattern” [17:17]

“When you can do something in the world that other people can't do that the world values, you will always be able to make a living.” [25:10]

On Today's Episode:

The secret is out… What you eat and consume is tied directly to the majority of the diseases that shorten our lifespan and quality of life. Given that sugar is literally hidden in nearly anything you eat and is everywhere in your local food store, the fight to beat diet-related diseases is tricky.

Even when you think you’re eating healthy, chances are there is a sneaky element of poor nutrition at play, which makes medical professionals like Dr. David Perlmutter beyond frustrated. Dr. Perlmutter is a board certified neurologist and fellow with the American College of Nutrition who has published multiple bestselling books on diet and better brain health.

This episode is a masterclass on uric acid and its role in metabolic health. It’s possible to fix your diet through good practice, and Dr. Perlmutter is generous with the information he shares that will allow you to make an individualized best assessment for yourself. Your diet and lifestyle are not to be ignored or disregarded for anyone serious about preventing disease.

Lack of information leads to unconscious destruction of your gut and havoc being unleashed in your system. Inflammatory problems and metabolic problems can ultimately be addressed with simple, consistent, intentional dietary changes.


Some of David’s best advice is to know your uric acid levels and stop eating fructose.

QUOTES:

“70 percent of the manufactured foods in America today, if it has a barcode and its in the grocery store, it has added sweeteners.” [1:06]

“It’s quite clear that 100% of humans alive today or who have ever lived have this genetic issue with the uric enzyme cannot break down uric acid.” [21:19]

“Instead of trying to patch up these problems, the idea of letting our genes keep us healthy, it’s kindness, it’s about reconnecting to that incredibly beautiful gift that we’ve received from all who have come before us.” [53:37]

“What we choose to do rewires our brain and changes our thinking.” [58:51]

“When we’re deranged in our metabolic lives it sets the stage for all the bad things you don’t want to get.” [59:42]

“Fructose is the signal then that prepares us for not having any food.” [1:06:42]

You think you know what money is and how it works, but then you watch this conversation with Tom and Robert Breedlove and now you’re questioning everything.

During our current financial crisis, prices in the market are a lot higher than what they’re reporting inflation to be. You spend $100 in groceries and you’re leaving the supermarket with what feels more like $60 or $70 worth of groceries. How is this possible when inflation is reported to be closer to 9%?

Robert Breedlove hosts the podcast, What Is Money. He is a freedom maximalist, and bitcoin philosopher that gives you plenty of food for thought. His breakdown of inflation, theft, and corrosion of big government is hard to ignore.

In this episode you can take away some money strategies that will help get you through this crisis. Robert is exposing what true debasement of your hard earned dollars really means, and why you should be outraged as a private citizen. Is bitcoin truly the answer to ending economic corruption people have been sold?

SHOW NOTES:

1:29:22 | Why People Are Angry

QUOTES:

“Inflation is quite simply, legal counterfeiting, and counterfeiting is illegal inflation. They’re mechanically the same thing.” [1:10]

“Setting a legal monopoly to steal from all of society is a really convenient wealth acquisition strategy.” [7:28]

“I’m not advocating for bitcoin as your checking account, I’m advocating bitcoin for your long term savings account.” [10:20]

“The moment we entered fractional reserve banking it became a pyramid scheme.” [27:04]

“The only thing you can do with printing money is violate the property of others; you cannot issue any equitable benefit to an economic system.” [28:28]

“Debt shrinks people’s time horizon, [...] Instead of delaying gratification and saving for the future, I now want to sell the future and buy today.” [32:56]

“Monetary dilution is inflation, and monetary enrichment is deflation.” [39:35]

“What we’re doing when we print money is inducing or incentivizing consumption actions over investment actions, and investment actions are what drive innovation.” [43:53]

“The degree to which you are violating private property is the degree to which you are not rewarding productive members of society, and you are rewarding political actors in society.” [1:06:05]

“Institutions don’t follow the laws that they promulgate, institutions follow the individuals that run the institutions, those individuals tend to be corruptible. They will bend the publicly applied rule for private gain. That is my definition of corruption.” [1:51:43]

On Today's Episode:

Pursuing a big audacious goal without absolute clarity, intensity, and obsession about it is the reason most people will never achieve their true potential. There are so many ways that we unconsciously sabotage our best efforts and our biggest dreams

In this special episode, Tom has members of his team join him to get clarity around the habits and goals they will need to make their big audacious goals a reality.

Common things holding you back from success
Stop lying to yourself, own your sh*t, and get real. Fast
How to execute at the higher levels you aim for
What the process of desire and achieving long term goals looks like
TIps for getting into problem solving mode.

The good news is that making progress and achieving your goals is within your power right now. The not so great news is that it requires you to get obsessed with your goal and raise your level of intensity in tackling these things, without excuses, without judgment, without any way out.

Mentioned in this episode:
Empire of the Summer Moon by S.C. Gwynne

“You have to be able to generate that level of intensity to get to the otherside.” [47:06]

“Go through the process of learning something totally new.” [1:01:15]

On Today's Episode:

Feeling stuck and uncertain about how to break out of the routine you’re in is more common than you know. The road to success still starts with one step and watching this can be your step one if you’re willing to follow through with action.

Instead of spending time frustrated trying to discover your passion, understand that passion is developed and cultivated. It’s a decision to pursue and follow your curiosity.

Before you shave off one more hour from your sleep tonight, realize that you aren’t doing yourself any favors. Tom is adamant about diet, exercise, and sleep. It’s what allows him to execute at such a high level consistently with clarity of mind and complete focus.

This episode is a masterclass unto itself and covers everything from getting the right morning routine to getting so good you can’t be ignored or denied.

The only question now is, what do you want and what price are you willing to pay to get there?

“There’s a gap between who you are today and who you will need to become in order to execute against your why.” -Tom Bilyeu

QUOTES:

“For anybody that wants to achieve something extraordinary in their life, the third thing you need to focus on is mindset, the first two are diet and exercise.” [2:03]

“To get the most out of my day, to make the most of whatever hours I’m awake, I would rather be super sharp and well-rested, than try to wake up really early, be tired, be slow, be miserable…” [6:44]

“It is insanely important, and I believe that you can get ahold of your emotional states [20:11]

“Fear of confrontation, [...] part of that fear is coming from you having a vision of yourself that you’re worried will be diminished…” [24:16]

“Instead of trying to come out of the other side of confrontation looking cool or being right, [...] go into that confrontation with a desire to find out what is really true, what is really optimal…” [24:37]

“In the process of gaining hat mastery and fanning those flames it became a passion, but it wasn’t a passion right off the bat.” [29:47]

“You need to speak in a way that draws people in.” [36:42]

“The truth of the f*cking world is that until you take ownership of everything in your life, until you stop making excuses and blaming anybody, you will never go as far as you could go.” [39:45]

“Don’t worry about convincing people, meet them with compassion, [...] understand that a fixed mindset is its own punishment.” [41:36]

“You can never have two top priorities, [...] that doesn’t mean that there aren’t multiple things that aren’t important, but there can only be one top priority.” [42:48]

“You can become anything you want to become.” [46:52]

“We’re not judged by our intentions. We are judged by what we actually accomplish.” [56:27]

“Who you are today does not predict who you can become.” [1:03:42]

“There’s a difference between happiness and fulfillment, [...] fulfillment is often born of suffering, it’s about doing the things that are hard.” [1:21:45]

“A little bit of beating yourself up actually probably does move you towards your goal cause it kicks you in the ass and gets you moving.” [1:30:22]

“The second I give my power away to somebody else, I’m now at something else’s mercy.” [1:46:17]

What in the crypto is actually going on? In the middle of the financial crisis we’re experiencing, people are acting out of desperation, and emotions are possibly leading the charge.

Raoul Pal is back to help us understand what is the current state of crypto, why FTX has been using customer money and more importantly, why is this not as unusual as you may think. Raoul’s insights as a macro investor, former hedge fund manager that retired at 36, and co-founder of Real Vision, a financial media company, takes us to a high level view to string together how world history and demographics have brought us to this point.

The key takeaway here for you is that, “the game of money is a game of psychology.” Tom Bilyeu Once you understand that this is a game, we need to know the players, the rules. The ultimate indicator of how you play this game, as Raoul explains it, is the future version of yourself and what that version wants. It indicates your debts, your risk tolerance, and what your next financial move will be following this interview.

Whatever you do, do so from a place of minimizing your emotional response and play the game well.

On Today's Episode:

How many times have you planned out the perfect day? You start thinking about all the things you can accomplish in the next week, you get super pumped and when the time comes, nothing happens. After possible hours of being side tracked, unmotivated and distracted with the less important and more mundane tasks of life, you say, “tomorrow.” This slippery slope of a habit loop among other tell tale signs can be summarized as the Self Sabotaging Death Loop. We’ve all been there and perhaps you are there now. So, how do you get unstuck, and how do you stop sabotaging your best efforts at moving towards a higher purpose and a better version of yourself? You are not alone, and in less than half an hour you’ll have at least one thing you can start doing immediately to get unstuck and not sabotage the rest of your day.

“Delaying gratification is an absolute superpower.” Tom Bilyeu

Problems being addressed:
• Being so passionate, and yet so afraid
• Not taking action on the thing you should be doing to reach your goals
• Trouble ignoring negative thoughts to push through the resistance
• Living in the cycle of thinking I feel stuck

The Juice of Success = Helping Others + Having Established Rules + Your Excitable Goal

SHOW NOTES:

0:00 | Introduction
0:33 | Self Sabotage Death Loop
6:19 | Procrastination Cure
11:20 | Confidence From Failure
16:54 | Success is Delayed Gratification
20:11 | Tom’s Secret Weapon

QUOTES:

“By putting it off till tomorrow, I really was sabotaging myself. Because if you want to get good, you must face all of those problems, all of those fears, you have to be willing to fail.” [3:23]

“How you stop self sabotaging is accept that it's okay to not be good enough yet, and that you're going to put in the time and the energy to get good” [4:45]

“You don't need to try to match my rules. You just need to know your value system and put it in order to build rules that allow you to actually accomplish that and then hold yourself accountable.” [10:49]

“The very nature of success is that you must fail and not fail once or twice, but you must fail over and over and over and over and over. Because it is only in that iterative process that you are able to improve...” [12:07]

“Get really good at facing that embarrassment and you can really propel yourself forward.” [15:43]

“If you're just operating around optimizing for momentary mind states, brain states, neurochemical states, then you're always going to be in short term thinking, you're always going to get short term results.” [18:22]

“What matters in life is how you feel about yourself when you're by yourself.” [22:15]

On Today's Episode:

Settling for your day to day routine is one of the best ways to ensure a boring unfulfilled life. When you feel unfulfilled and like everyday is filled with going through the motions, it becomes easy to turn to unhealthy, self-destructive habits. Without understanding why you feel this way, affairs, drugs, and other unhealthy addictions have the opportunity to creep in.

Robert Greene is well known for books that have shaped culture, challenged beliefs and p*ssed quite a few people off. The Daily Laws, Mastery and The 48 Laws of Power are just a few of his bestselling books.

Robert joins Tom in this epic conversation about how to look inward and uncover the root cause of the boredom that leaves you feeling like your just wasting life away. Fulfillment is key if you really want to change your life around. The path to fulfillment involves mastery and Robert breaks down our need for stress in order to get there.

On Today's Episode:

What every entrepreneur needs to know to start a successful business is how to ask the right questions. Because I’ve made virtually every mistake possible in building my own businesses, you can learn without the pain and time it costs me. One of the biggest things standing in the way of your success is knowing what questions to ask yourself to make progress and move forward. You know where you are at this moment and you see where you want to go.

In this Q&A I’m taking you through all the steps and more importantly, the questions you need to be asking yourself to start gaining momentum and start seeing results of a rapidly growing business. I’ve built the foundation of my business model on community and bringing that community value. As you begin your journey as an entrepreneur, two things are important: 1) that you start thinking from first principles and 2) that you know the problem you are solving and the value you are bringing to people.

3 Starter Points:
1. What is the problem I’m here to solve?
2. How do I solve the problem better than anybody else?
3. Get product into people’s hands to try


2 Power Questions for Massive Results:
1. Why, if I just keep doing what I'm doing now, won’t I automatically get to my goal?
2. Where do you apply energy to overcome the obstacle that stands between you and your goal?

SHOW NOTES:

QUOTES:

“The reality is, every successful business was better at something that mattered than everybody else.” [1:35]

“Hone in on an area that is underserved, a need that’s not being met, with a customer that you completely understand, with a product that is better than everybody else. That's the goal.” [2:34]

“Avoid analysis paralysis, by having a rule that you always, and I mean always, take action.” [4:02]

“Running 1000 miles an hour in the wrong direction is far more beneficial than standing still [...] by moving you're learning, and that's the key.” [5:41]

“My partners and I were looking for the intersection of passion and opportunity, and that's what I would encourage all of you to do. There is no reason you have to settle for one or the other. You can have both.” [9:00]

“You shouldn't need the fact that there's all this stress and pressure on you to succeed in order to succeed.” [22:28]

What are you basing your diet choices on? With the abundance of information available there is no shortage of diet camps to choose from. Whether you have decided on being carnivore, vegan, raw vegan, or decided to lovingly follow a plant-based diet to support being more humane to animals, how is your decision impacting your health and the environment?

Dave Asprey, “the father of biohacking” and founder of the Bulletproof diet and Upgrade Labs, has been digging into the research and data determined to live 185 years. He’s already reversed his biological age by 11 years and in this episode he’s laying out mind-blowing ways to biohack your way to better health with less time and effort in the gym and why following a plant-based, vegan diet may not be as kind and friendly to the planet as we’re led to believe.

On Today's Episode:

You likely dream about success and have a deep desire to earn more money, genuinely help people, and you probably struggle making it happen like many people do. Being low on resilience every time you come against an obstacle or challenge, dealing with high levels of anxiety, and never having enough energy to really execute the way you want to are holding you back.

Before your frustration takes you to the next level, let’s consider poor brain health may be the thing holding you back. You have to optimize your health to be successful, and your brain health is a must.

Dr. Daniel Amen, clinical psychiatrist of the Amen Clinic reveals 7 steps to boost your brain health so you can build a brain that lowers the risk of a poor quality of life, and increases your brain function so you can reach the levels of success and financial rewards you’re looking for.

One of the key takeaways is understanding that feeling down, depleted, moody, and over anxious are not just mental health issues, they are brain health concerns you can address and do something about, starting right now.

“After looking at the brain I’ve come to realize these are not mental illnesses at all, they’re brain health issues that steal your mind.” [1:33:43]

“You have to tell your brain what you want because it’s always listening.” [1:54:09]

On Today's Episode:

When you haven’t done enough hard things to earn your own respect it’s easy to quit when things get hard. You start to feel lazy and unmotivated because you lack the grit and self-discipline to see anything through to the end.

Often we lack the motivation to do what success demands of us because we don’t have an identity that aligns with the outcome we say we want. Our poor habits and inability to show up consistently to create the outcome and experience we say we want creates a greater distance between where we are and where we want to go.

Anthony Trucks started with an enormous gap between the 3 year old that entered the foster care system, the teenager they called “Butterfingers,” and the NFL player turned motivational speaker, bestselling author, life coach and podcast host. He advocates the value of hard work and suffering that creates experiences, opportunities and outcomes that make it possible to build a new identity. He helps people learn and do what it takes to shift their identity.

In this episode, we’re deep diving into 3 skills Anthony believes will help you avoid being lazy and learn to stay motivated and take action even when you don’t think it’s possible.

SHOW NOTES:

55:53 | Rebuilding a Failed Marriage

QUOTES:

“I like the idea that perspective precedes enlightenment.” [1:33]

“It’s interesting how people with the most idotic views can frame them so eloquently now.” [3:40]

“People don’t understand that you can entertain an idea without adopting it.” [10:37]

“I believed the fact that if I did nothing, then nothing would get better.” [15:19]

“I get the desire to want to feel good in your own skin, but the solution isn’t to avoid the fact that you don’t feel that great.” [19:15]

“One of the problems we have in society now is that we coddle kids and we rob them of their hardships.” [32:40]

“I’d done too much work in the dark for you to take what’s mine in the light.” [42:42]

“A lot of people are trying to shine in the light without having done that dark work.” [44:51]

“You are what you consistently do.” [45:18]

“I craft a specific experience for myself because I have to experience something to rewire it.” [49:29]

Step By Step Instructions on How The AVERAGE Person Can Get Into CRYPTO and NFTs | Tom Bilyeu
3043
Build IRONCLAD discipline in this FREE workshop: https://bit.ly/3RFH0Vh

On Today's Episode:

Understanding what cryptocurrency, NFTs and blockchain are is still being missed by so many people. However, the opportunity being presented by cryptocurrency and NFTs is so much more than investing. Even if you don’t understand much of this as of today, try to view this crypto conversation through the lens of being an opportunity parallel to what the internet was in 1997 when it first started to gain traction. Think of the first AOL commercials and the buzz and excitement you may have experienced from that.

Now imagine 2 things. One, imagine getting the opportunity to invest in the “internet” or an internet based company at that time. It’s probably fair to say you wouldn’t have much need to punch a clock now. The other thing to imagine is, how much the internet as a technology has advanced cell phones, businesses, the way we interact and communicate with the entire world. That scenario is quite possibly the same kind of opportunity you are living through right now with NFTs, bitcoin, ethereum, and blockchain.

This is a technology that is being adopted faster than any other technology ever was, and it’s an opportunity that’s going to disrupt life, business, and humanity forever. Why this content is being brought to you, is to serve as a red flag and get your attention to at least do your research and learn about what this is so you can make informed decisions going forward. In this video, Tom is answering more questions and laying out what you need to do step-by-step.

Steps to Research NFTs:
1. Learn about this technology so you can think from first principles.
2. Start with any words you know, bitcoin, crypto, NFTs, etc. and start learning terminology.
3. Figure out who the different players are in the crypto and NFT space.
4. Venture down the rabbit hole to gain expertise, follow them and engage.
5. Cross over to truly understanding what this is about.

QUOTES:

“The key is to really understand from first principles so that you're not just mimicking what other people are doing, but that you can create your own thesis.” [11:26]

“It's not meant to replace the dollar, it's meant to be a store of value, like that gold in the vault somewhere.” [17:27]

“It is the single fastest adopted technology in human history. Let that sink in.” [18:25]
“Just like paper money that you're used to, the normal money, it only has value because we all say it has value, and if we all stop saying it has value, then it stops having value.” [19:09]

“Whatever I'm buying, I'm not just buying because I'm hoping that it's going to go up, I'm buying it, because I understand it, and I understand how it's used, and I have a bet that when I look out at the future of what's going to happen with the world, that use case is going to continue to be relevant.” [22:57]

“Over time, as they say, your network is your net worth, you start putting these individuals together that can help you create the things that you want to create, but it's about putting in a relentless amount of time and energy.” [38:39]

“Virtually every business should have a website strategy. Virtually every business should have an NFT strategy.” [47:19]

“NFTs allow communities to grow with the creator.” [48:40]

The 3 SUPERFOODS You Need To Eat To Lose Weight & PREVENT DISEASE! | Dr. Jeffrey Bland
5381
Build IRONCLAD discipline in this FREE workshop: https://bit.ly/3RFH0Vh

On Today's Episode:

Autoimmune disease has been on the rise for the last few decades. Everything seems to be idiopathic in nature, but you have to wonder, is our diet tied to the rise in autoimmune conditions being diagnosed globally?

Dr. Jeffrey Bland is considered to be the Father of Functional Medicine and the President of Big Bold Health. He stands for the science of hope that there is wisdom in nature that needs to be adhered to and not forgotten. Dr. Bland is quick to remind us that big pharma cannot extract one nutrient to treat a condition when all of the complexities of food found in nature are needed.

Global Immune stress is creating greater levels of cortisol and interfering with the effectiveness of your immune system. Becoming a person who is conscious of the dietary choices they make daily and environmental stressors being tolerated will allow us to minimize the diseases we are doomed to face if we make no changes at all.

QUOTES:

“I don’t think we have autoimmunity. What we have is an immune reaction to our self being converted into non-self.” [11:42]

“That’s one of the problems we have with nutritional supplementation in this country and the way we view it, is we often think about green pharmacy, ‘okay we have a drug now what is the nutrient we can find that mimics that drug’. That’s not the way nature works.” [31:29]

“I don’t have to accept every idea, but I have to listen carefully. There’s wisdom out there that I may not be able to understand if I’m just channeled in my own myopia.” [50:26]

“The successful treatments are in the wisdom of nature, it’s in the wisdom that we need to go back and relearn.” [1:08:38]

“Alzheimers’s is not a disease. It’s a complex outcome from the marriage of our genes with our environment, with our lifestyle.” [1:08:51]

“Functional medicine is for real people, [...] medicine that we use is built around statistical humans. You get a diagnosis, and that is who you are.” [1:11:03]

“When you turn on the right genes and turn off the genes that are giving you problems, that’s real medicine.” [1:26:00]

Is your ultimate goal about how much money you earn? Is it about the lifestyle you provide for yourself and your family? In the grand scheme of things we know that money doesn’t bring you joy, and it is far better to chase fulfillment and joy, and yet you may still think fulfillment and joy are boring.

Optimizing yourself to execute at higher levels of success requires that you spend time growing as a person in all major areas of your life. Your physical health, your mind, your mental and emotional health are all areas to focus on, and Vishen Lakhiani, CEO of Mindvalley and best selling author is changing the way people access customized education.

Vishen is back with Tom on this episode to discuss the number one habit successful people have that we should adopt, but that most of us won’t. He wrote The Code of the Extraordinary Mind, The Buddha and the Badass, and now he’s released a method he’s been perfecting for years called The 6 Phase Meditation Method. Contributing in a meaningful way to society is what lays at the root of your desire for money and for lifestyle. Growing with expedience and intention is a tool that allows you to get there.

On Today's Episode:

If you’re being haunted by an internal desire pulling you to want more. If you’re totally frustrated and feeling like it's too late or too hard to redefine your life and reinvent yourself, whether because of your age or past circumstances, this is for you. So many people dream, want and covet an extraordinary life, but the same people run a self defeating, self sabotaging and suffocating narrative that prevents them from taking action or even believing they can. Is this where you are right now? Can you relate and more importantly are you fed up with the shame, the negativity and self doubt? Tom is breaking down exactly how you can start getting the most out of your life and begin to make extraordinary changes no matter what your age or circumstances. Part of the solution is exploring to find out what you would enjoy doing even if it failed and took you nowhere. The other part of the solution is refining your skills, getting off your ass and valuing yourself for the pursuit of the journey and how you feel about yourself when you are by yourself.

“What is it that you can fall in love with enough that makes all the fighting through the negative voice and all of that worth it? There is a process that you can go through that instead of being about change is about falling in love.” [13:39]

“If you build your self esteem around winning, or being better than them, that's a recipe for a miserable life.” [27:21]

“The whole punchline of life is to feel good about yourself when you're by yourself to live a life that is full of joy, to be fulfilled.” [28:15]

If you’ve ever felt depressed over where you are in life, experienced the embarrassment of getting fired, been frustrated over student loan debts and bills you can’t afford to pay, then you’re in the right place for a reality check.

Your circumstances are a direct reflection of the decisions you’ve made until this point. It doesn’t matter that things never go your way. It doesn’t matter that every time you try to step up you get overlooked. The only thing that matters is that you’re willing to be honest with yourself about where you are and that you’re ready to turn your life around and take total ownership of your life. Every success and every failure is 100% yours if you get unstuck and become unstoppable.

Tom Bilyeu went from being broken, scared, and insecure to becoming confident enough to develop his leadership skills and earn massive respect. The lesson for you right now is to stop giving your control away and start owning your sh*t!

Michael Saylor | "Crypto Is CRASHING!" - Once In A Lifetime Opportunity To BUILD WEALTH Is Here
7443
Build IRONCLAD discipline in this FREE workshop: https://bit.ly/3SgtTuA

On Today's Episode:

Given the current global economic crisis we’re all living through, it’s safe to say that something is broken with our traditional models of government and economics. Today’s guest is not shy about calling it out for what it is as we experience unprecedented times with unprecedented levels of public intervention.

Michael Saylor is an entrepreneur and business executive. He’s the executive chairman and co-founder of MicroStrategy. After recently stepping down from his role as the CEO of MicroStrategy after 30 plus years, he’s sharing his unique perspective of what it means to survive our current global crisis. MicroStrategy is the biggest publicly traded corporate owner of bitcoin with close to 130,000 BTC.

There’s a necessity for you to understand money, understand how to protect your balance sheet, and understand your property rights. For some of us, it is riskier to stay where you are when considering to what extent governments are suppressing the free market, controlling your assets, and manufacturing metrics that don’t reveal the true picture

The most important decision for you to make at this point is where to place your assets and store value. Will you choose to store your assets and build value in things like real estate and gold that can be seized, taxed and controlled by the government, or will you consider what you can achieve by storing your assets through bitcoin?

QUOTES:

“When you buy something that everybody else understands to be good at the same time they all agree with you, it’s normally bad.” [7:37]

“When a government declares a war, they basically put public policy and initiatives ahead of the free market.” [11:21]

“The road to hell is paved in good intents.” [15:29]

“Anybody you know that’s a billionaire, [...] the Jeff Besos, the Elon Musks of the world, they didn’t get there without holding an asset that had technical potential for a decade or longer, there is no get rich quick schemes.” [18:53]

“War is a suppression of the free market to the benefit of the public organization.” [20:56]

“We have a set of metrics that are manufactured metrics, and then we focus on them and then we talk about them, but ultimately what you have is an economy that has been distorted...” [26:10]

“The U.S. primary expert is inflation, and it’s a good situation, [...] we get products or services in return for exporting the dollar.” [50:45]

“A terrifying thing becomes an excuse for the government to encroach more on freedom.” [1:00:10]

“The big idea of the last two years is, every individual needs to become macroeconomically sophisticated and politically sophisticated.” [1:19:42]

“Once you understand money, you understand bitcoin is engineered money and it’s engineered without defects.” [1:34:46]

“Cyberspace is a political construct and it is not a physical construct. Money in cyberspace is political money.” [1:48:08]

This Is How You CONVERT Your Failures Into SUCCESS | Tom Bilyeu
2076
Build IRONCLAD discipline in this FREE workshop: https://bit.ly/3SbkPqM

Failure is an equal opportunist. It’s one of those things every person walking this Earth will face at some point. Failure doesn’t discriminate on color, race, social class, educational level and it damn sure doesn’t care about who you know or what you’ve accomplished in the past. It is faithful and loving enough to stay with you longer than your most embarrassing photo. So why run, why feel bad, and why beat yourself up over it? Tom is sharing some of his biggest failures in this Q & A, and breaking down the exact techniques he’s used to go from lying face down on cheap nylon carpet shamed by failure in film school to cashing in on the mindset that keeps giving, and keeps working hand in hand with every failure.

It is possible to have a loving relationship with failure (that may be a bit of exaggeration) but you can learn to joyfully deal with your failures. Tom’s request to you, is that as soon as you watch this, pick ONE piece of advice, one technique you can try out and DO IT today! Rewatch this as much as you need to, but do make a move and stop allowing failure, shame, and self sabotage to hold you back from reaching the next level to your success.

13:06 | Breaking the Failure Loop

QUOTES:

“No matter how successful the person is that you're looking at, [...] the one thing that I can promise you is that all of us struggle on the inside” [1:18]

“It may take you longer, you may have to work harder than somebody else, but if you love it enough, and you want to be that thing, then you can become that thing.” [11:21]

“Don't be afraid to be incapable, simply recognize what you're going to need to do in order to get capable, and then decide whether you're willing to put the time and the energy into it or not.” [30:49]

On Today's Episode:

If we made eating for optimal health a priority at every meal, we’d all be super healthy, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies would be out of business and processed food manufacturers would have to turn into farmers to survive. The problem with adopting a healthy diet isn’t that people don’t want to be healthy, the problem is that there are so many misleading and contradictory messages out there that even when you decide to eat healthy you’re still tricked into consuming sugar, chemicals, artificial coloring and everything else that causes metabolic disease and poor gut microbiomes.

So let’s just focus on the widespread messages that are common among several experts in the field and make at least one improve today to live a healthier and happier tomorrow.

You are the most important person in your life that you need to impress. So, even if you are in a room with the president of the country, your mother, your boss, and your future spouse, there is no one more important to impress than yourself. If you’ve been here before you’ve probably heard it said, the only thing that matters is how you feel about yourself when you are by yourself. Can you trust yourself to show up and get things done when you say you’re going to? Or do you not believe yourself when you tell someone that you will be there or you will have this done for them by a certain date? It is critical to your future success that you earn trust and have credibility with yourself more than anyone else. Being accountable and reliable for yourself is the secret to building stronger relationships and social networks. Tom is going to take you through why being accountable to yourself matters, how you can build that relationship with yourself, and the unspoken rules of accountability taking place in relationships that you need to be aware of to succeed. Ultimately, accountability comes down to the sincere pursuit of your goals, not actually achieving them. Fall in love with the process and be as hardcore as you want to be.

“Only do and believe that which moves you towards your goals” -Tom Bilyeu

5:35 | Authority and Credibility Matter
7:32 | Earning Credibility with Yourself

20:31 | Accountable to Not Blaming Others
25:36 | Harmful Accountability
30:18 | Weak and Accountable
34:07 | Accountable to Aggressive Goals

QUOTES:

“Even if you can fool the world, there will be an account of your actions in your own mind.” [1:58]

“If you're trying to present yourself as being good at something, then you better be living up to the things that you say” [6:37]

“Credibility is most important when you're talking about self credibility.” [8:47]

“When somebody has an expectation of you or you have an expectation of somebody else, you're holding them accountable to that value system, whether you articulate it or not.” [14:30]

“Becoming capable of a championship performance is far more emotionally gratifying than actually winning the championship. It's the journey.” [24:54]

“The reason that I divorce myself from the ultimate outcome is because you don't want to live for some future time.” [28:38]

“Even if I might be wrong, it's far better to believe something that is hopeful, optimistic, and empowering.” [32:38]

“Don't use failure as a way to get out of accountability.” [33:35]

This Is Why You Feel LOST & UNHAPPY In Life! (Change Everything) | Gabor Matè

FREE Workshop Build IRONCLAD discipline: https://bit.ly/3x17Jo3

WE are EXCITED to bring to you our NEW Impact Theory en Español YouTube channel. PLEASE share with all your Spanish speaking friends & family: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMEJfAwHJkdpiHXuFVaFsIw/featured

On Today's Episode:

Either you or someone you know is dealing with illness on some level. Whether it’s an autoimmune condition, metabolic disorder, or mental health crisis, it’s hard to escape the reality of how sick our society has become and so we’ve normalized our lack of health and made it the new norm without really questioning why.

In our fast-paced technological world where medical breakthroughs are more common it feels like we’re further from a solution than when we started or we’re just solving for problems we’ve been creating and consequently we’re farther from optimal health than ever before. At what cost is all this happening?

Dr. Gabor Mate is a world renowned trauma and addiction expert with over 40 years experience and respect looking at how trauma has been affecting us from childhood long into our adult years. Today he’s discussing The Myth of Normal, also the title of his latest book on trauma, illness, and healing in a toxic culture. From the very beginning Gabor exposes the myth and explains why this new norm we’ve accepted is actually making us sick.

Between exposing how trauma in our childhood and suppressed anger lead to autoimmune diseases and how our adaptive responses to bad parenting decisions cause a plethora of problems in our adult lives, Gabor Mate is laying down food for thought that will shift the way you see everything.

59:46 | Breaking Traumatic Cycles
1:12:35 | Healing Childhood Adaptations
1:23:50 | Conditions of Unconditional Love
1:27:14 | Changing an Unhealthy Culture

QUOTES:

“In this culture the norm is neither healthy nor is it natural, in fact the norm I think is making us sick.” [0:56]

“Illness in this society given the conditions is a normal response to an abnormal circumstance.” [1:11]

“That means we have to be in touch with our gut feelings and our emotions and to be true to them, and so what we need is relationships is which we can be true to ourselves, that’s a directive.” [4:25]

“When you suppress your emotions you’re suppressing your immune system as well.” [5:55]

“Infant is an expectation for unconditional acceptance. [...] We evolved as expectations for certain conditions. The less a society meets those conditions the more toxic it becomes…” [7:56]

“You can set boundaries through just love, through relationship, through example, it doesn’t have to involve force and it certainly doesn’t have to involve physical force.” [13:26]

“You may know on some level that your parents love you because they feed you, they hug you, but at the same time these people that love you are deeply hurting you, that’s traumatic.” [18:38]

“Wealth is defined as a set of social connections rather than a set of physical possessions.” [27:55]

“In this society, it’s the worst of us that get nourished and the best of us that gets suppressed.” [30:56]

“Not feeling your anger was an adaptation to your childhood where the anger wasn’t permitted. That emotional physiological effort to repress anger takes a toll on the nervous system and the immune system. It’s a major role in disease ” [42:10]

“Healthy anger is a boundary defense.” [44:15]

“When you suppress the emotions, you’re also suppressing the immune system.” [45:42]

“Trauma is an imprint that makes you react to the present like you’re still a child, [...] it’s automatic, it’s unwilled…” [55:39]

“What stresses people are a loss of control, uncertainty, conflict and lack of information.” [1:05:15]

“Having love for a person doesn’t mean that you’re going to put up with everything that they do, [...] we have to draw our boundaries, but the question is how do we draw our boundaries and in what spirit and with what intention?” [1:24:41]

“Why should we settle for the worst versions of ourselves…” [1:33:13]

BE UNSHAKABLE: 5 Stoic Habits That Will IMMEDIATELY CHANGE Your Life! | Ryan Holiday
7507
FREE Workshop Build IRONCLAD discipline: https://bit.ly/3CG3r9c

On Today's Episode:

When it comes to enduring pain or hardships, sadly the majority of us have earned our pro cards. Yet when it comes to getting through those hardships without complaining or showing your anger and frustration on your face, many of us fail hard.

Ryan Holiday is the modern day stoic, host and author of the Daily Stoic. His passion for sharing stoicism is apparent in any one of his bestselling books. The lessons on stoicism he simplifies and makes relatable are markers for living a quality life based in courage and truth.

For this episode, consider the discomfort of being courageous when the stakes are high whether it’s moral or ethical. Stop stealing time from yourself and treat your time with as much value and care as you do your physical possessions. Find time to ask yourself the hard questions and consider what an ideal day in your life looks like.

“There is no deed in this life so impossible that you cannot do it. Your whole life should be lived as a heroic deed.” -Leo Tolstoy, A Calendar of Wisdom

“Courage is not always sexy and obvious.” [15:36]

“If you’re trying to be everything for everyone and you read feedback you’re just going to get more lost.” [32:43]

“If I’m going to use my emotions I want to be calm internally but projecting the emotional response that’s going to be effective in that situation, but I don’t want to be jerked around by those emotions unconsciously.” [41:28]

“There’s two components to courage. There’s physical courage and moral courage, [...] what those two types of courage have in common is it’s about putting your ass on the line in some way.” [58:02]

“If you don’t put yourself out there you can’t feel like a piece of shit if you fall short. There’s real courage in the earnestness, in the effort in trying.” [1:03:53]

“When you decide how you’re going to look at history, are you going to be inspired by the people who stepped up, or are you going to use the failures of history as an excuse to not have to try.” [1:22:02]

“We protect our physical space much more than we protect our time, even though physical space can be regained and time can never be regained.” [1:25:00]

“Courage is in the middle between cowardice and recklessness.” [1:43:34]

“If you don’t feel fear you are not thinking.” [1:46:21]

“The job of a writer, or an artist, or a thought leader, [...] is to explore and articulate what they think is true and believe to be important.” [1:56:31]

The BEST FOODS To Eat That End Inflammation & MELT BODY FAT! | Shawn Stevenson
5864
Build IRONCLAD discipline in this free workshop: https://bit.ly/3chWSid

On Today's Episode:

Deciding what to eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner is a bigger decision than you know. While many of us base our meal choices on convenience, time, money, and taste, the frightening truth is that we are actually deciding what our cells will be made of, and too often we’re making sh*t choices.

Changing your overall health means understanding that food matters in ways that we don’t really comprehend. Shawn Stevenson is joining Tom to share life changing data from research and perspective on foods, pharmaceutical use, and physician diagnoses that are more than shocking! Shawn is the author of the international bestseller Sleep Smarter, and his latest book, Eat Smarter.

In this episode, Shawn opens up about his personal experience being diagnosed with a chronic, debilitating disease at 20 years old, and what it meant for him to take his health, his life, and his power into his own hands. This discussion lays out all the reasons why and the ways how you can take control of your health and stop giving that power to people that aren’t living with your pain, your suffering, and poor health. Our society isn’t making the best decisions for anyone’s health. You can be the victim or the hero of your life in this story, the decision is yours to take.

“The last 30 years have been marked by exchanging what worked for what sounds good.” -Thomas Sowell

Build IRONCLAD discipline in this free workshop: https://bit.ly/3QOMOMB

On This Page:

Wishing your way to wealth and success, complaining about who is wealthy, and riding the wave of misplaced time, money and effort is not why you’re here. Stock markets, investment portfolios, 401Ks, and bank accounts look like the stuff global disasters are made of.

You’re living through weird times and having a biological experience of unforeseen proportions when you look at the global economic sh*t storm we’re in. So the top 5 ideas and people you’re spending your time with really matters, perhaps more than ever before. Perspective is key, and you get to decide if you’re living in a friendly or hostile world.

Raoul Pal, CEO and co-founder of Real Vision, has some ideas that can certainly help average up how you think about getting through our current recession. Whether your money is all in crypto, in a 401k that’s reduced by half, or in none of the above, the ideas that Raoul shares in this episode may be some of the most important ideas you’ve ever heard.

Are you still living and acting based on an American Dream that died decades ago? Does the thought of buying during a market drop scare you or excite you? Listening to these conversations between Raoul and Tom is going to break some of your ideas apart and allow you to put together a new and improved perspective that will allow you to thrive during this recession and maybe even get a little excited.

QUOTES:

“Even if it’s in the bank. It’s not your money [7:13]

“Humans have a propensity to borrow to create this image of their future self. The future self was the amazing United States of America, that dream that we had in the 50s. That dream died decades ago.” [9:41]

“You should be looking at the moments of extreme weakness, the blood on the streets moment, to be buying more...” [20:43]

“Don’t look at your lost of wealth from peak, that’s stupid. That’s the American dream fixating on something that doesn’t exist.” [28:53]

“We don’t buy the S&P because we want to hang it up on our wall. We buy it cause we want to sell it at a future date to realize money. So, that means our future selves are now poorer, [...] that’s what currency debasement is.” [44:47]

“Leverage allows you to borrow future money to use now.” [1:31:07]

“What really matters is your liquid net worth, the money that you’ve got available to invest, and I’m 100% in crypto, and I feel like I’m underexposed.” [1:50:52]

“That’s the beauty of bitcoin, [...] You’re a VC investor in the future platform of the internet of value and you’re paying nobody any fees.” [2:02:13]

Build IRONCLAD discipline in this free workshop: https://bit.ly/3KjC865

On Today's Episode:

Greatness isn’t reserved for the lucky or privileged few. Success and wealth isn’t a right that anyone has been denied by bad luck of the draw either. Possibility is within your control when you learn to use the pain and live the life you’ve been given better than anyone else and you learn to see opportunities. But you have to execute to make sh*t happen!

Eric Thomas has been motivating people for years and is bringing his energy and passion to Impact Theory to share the keys to success. Eric, also known as the hip-hop preacher, is a speaker, an entrepreneur, educator, and author. He’s taken the hard path in life, not by choice, and learned how to achieve greatness by relentlessly executing.

You can achieve greatness but you have to take action and be accountable to yourself first and foremost. Think about what it is that you want to be best at and give that your total focus. Tom often says, ‘action cures all’ and Eric is living proof that action is a must once and once you release all of your excuses, you can become unstoppable.

“If there’s another mountain to climb, climb it!” -Eric Thomas

On Today's Episode:

It’s easy to admire people that have reached extraordinary levels of success, it’s hard to imagine what it takes to get there. Passing off someone’s excellence and success as unattainable for ourselves is a b.s. and it’s not what we’re about at Impact Theory.

Brendon Burchard is one of the world’s leading high performance coaches that has impacted and trained millions of people globally. His online personal growth platform is dedicated to teaching people how to bring the joy, live with intention, love the life you live, and matter to yourself and others everyday because you show up to go all-in on whatever you decide.

“High performers are generating the energy, and that means the mental, emotional and physical energy, that they feel is necessary to serve with excellence in a certain situation.” [9:45]

“If no one thinks you’re crazy you’re not yet operating to the outer limits of your potential.” [13:43]

“Being obsessed about something that gives you no feedback is not scary, being obsessed about something, like trying to make an impact in the world you’re going to get feedback.” [14:39]

THIS Is How You Deal with Difficult People | Tom Bilyeu Q&A
2125
Learn how to build IRONCLAD discipline in this free workshop: https://bit.ly/3CqjYhg

On Today's Episode:

When was the last time you got into an argument? Have you been avoiding certain groups of people because the environment is so toxic? Have you caught yourself wondering after a conversation if you, in fact, were the one being difficult with someone else? While each scenario is different, the solution is nearly the same, and it requires you to show up as your best self even when it’s difficult. We can’t control other people’s emotions and responses but we are in control of our own. Leading with kindness when you encounter difficult people is the best way to ensure that you have meaningful relationships and conversations with others. You’re not always going to agree, but you can disagree and seek to understand where you may be wrong to make sure you have the healthiest relationships with family, friends, and teammates.

SHOW NOTES:

0:00 | Introduction
1:34 | Toxicity In the Family
8:12 | Aggressive People In Denial
13:15 | Can’t Accept They’re Wrong

26:32 | Know If You’re Being Difficult
29:00 | Keep Arguments Grounded
33:49 | Give People Space To Process
36:07 | Ending Difficulty for Harmony

QUOTES:

“It is okay for people to have a negative opinion about you.” [3:16]

“Anything that stops you from seeing yourself clearly, is something that holds you back. It stops you from having that progress, it stops you from building a life of joy, and at the end of the day, living a joyful life is really the sum total” [4:59]

“The very thing that makes people attack you is an outward focused gaze, and those that focus outward fail to see the opportunities in themselves.” [6:30]

“If the other person is getting agitated, instead of pretending that they're not, in the most gentle, loving, reconciliatory way, we're trying to figure out what happened.” [12:06]

“This comes back to wanting to be able to understand wanting to be able to articulate their side not trying to force them into meeting admitting that they're wrong,” [20:01]

“Kindness is the higher value than pointing out every flaw that we see or every bit of obnoxious behavior. Because at some point, it just spirals into madness” [24:00]

“Difficult isn't about, I'm setting out to be a jerk. Something has triggered an insecurity in me, and now I'm not at my best.” [27:39]

“We all think the other person is being difficult, when in reality, there's probably something that we could have done differently, to have that exchange go in a completely different direction” [28:12]

“When we can both explain each other's sides, we can defuse that situation, we can stop the scope creep of the argument, we can keep things just to the facts.” [33:13]

“Oftentimes people speak not so that they can be understood, but so that they can understand.” [33:49]

“When you point them thumbs back at yourself and look at what you can do, the world gets a whole lot better.” [37:59]

Learn how to build IRONCLAD discipline in this free workshop: https://bit.ly/3CqjYhg

On Today's Episode:

The frustration of sitting down to tackle that list of things to do today ends up the same way it did yesterday, the day before, and the day before that. Struggling with your most inner thoughts wondering if you’re the laziest person alive never feels good. Yet here you are dealing with the same sh*t, feeling as stuck today as you did two years ago.

Changing your beliefs and identity are the most important things you could ever do for yourself. What you believe about yourself, how you feel about yourself, and what you identify yourself as has consequences that show up in every area of your life, every single day.

Watch this episode today with an open mind willing to do something different than the same things you find yourself doing everyday. Maybe your problem isn’t about feeling lazy, but you’re suffering from burnout because you can never do enough and the things you’re doing aren’t even getting you the results you hope for.

Create yourself and your dreams through the power of habits: physical exercise, meditation, thinkitation, reading, and updating your list of the most important things.

“There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” -William Shakespeare

“The workout that you do, even if it's a little wonky, is better than the perfect workout that you don’t do.” [8:50]

“Outside of a loving relationship with my wife my diet is the most important thing that I do.” [14:29]

“Anxiety is probably 90% your diet and then 10% what you’re thinking about.” [16:52]

“Because you know that you’re prone to procrastinating you’ll put those rules in place and you’ll focus on how much you want the thing.” [36:23]

“Getting good at prioritizing is an art form. It is critically important that you get good at that art form.” [37:09]

What we’re trying to optimize for is struggling well, and part of struggling well is knowing when to backoff.” [43:14]

“Build rules into your life that mandate that you show up…” [54: 32]

“Boredom kills more dreams than failure.” [1:04:55]

On Today's Episode:

You are not alone if the recession has you nervous about what to expect. People have real concerns about whether or not they’ll be able to afford groceries, gas, and even rent!

For sure you’ve heard that millionaires are made in recessions, but how?

Jaspreet Singh is joining Tom for a second time to get you up to speed on what it takes to get wealthy during any recession. Jaspreet is the Minority Mindset guru and Chief Money Nerd at Minority Mindset Companies. He’s been creating financial education videos on YouTube for years and is breaking down all the reason you don’t have to be scared during a recession

It’s all about assets and equity. The trick is that you have to know what assets to buy and how to chill long enough to allow equity to grow its way to wealth. Recessions create buying opportunities for people with capital or money that know what to buy to come out on top.

Jaspreet is a voice of reason to remember that recessions are only bad or good in relation to which side of the equation you are on. This is a must watch if you’re trying to find the best route through a recession that has most people nervous and panicked.

On Today's Episode:

The law of attraction may sound mystical and more like pseudoscience depending on who you’re listening to, but today we want to break down law of attraction into practical parts so that you can look beyond what seems to be impractical and you can find the real application and use of the law of attraction, now!

Your beliefs matter, your thoughts greatly impact emotions and how you respond, your habits dictate what you continually reinforce and revisit every day, and the best part is that you decide what you think about. You choose the positive and negative thoughts to either empower your behavior or disempower your behavior.

On Today's Episode:

It’s obvious that what we put into our bodies has a major impact on how we feel, how we perform, and how we live the life we have. While some people choose to live in the moment for pleasure with little regard to consequences, others calculate and carefully consider what they consume, when they do and how they do it.

Optimizing for physical and mental performances, reducing stress and improving lifespan and memory is worth more than a moment of pleasure, and it may be possible to biohack your way there.

Nobody is successful in life without overcoming failure and adversity several times along the way.

We’re revisiting some of the most compelling interviews ever on Impact Theory in this mashup. Tai Lopez, Jay Williams, David Bayer, and Tim Grover have got heavy-duty stories about not quitting, what you need to do if you find yourself in a hole, and how you can pivot to a better life.

We’ve all been there, feeling stuck and not knowing where to turn. By giving you my insights and talking about the things that might be driving you into darkness, I hope you’ll find clarity and use honesty to help you make essential changes in your life.

Understand this.

You have it in you to make a comeback from any setback.

And this week we’re going to show you how.


Tai Lopez is an entrepreneur, author, investor, motivational speaker, crypto philanthropist, and creator of The 67 Steps Program, a guide to simplifying the process of personal profit and higher philosophical understanding of the “Good Life.” Check out his full episode here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jX5eajzLJMU

By age 21, Jay Williams had achieved his dreams of playing in the NBA and becoming wealthy. But before his second season, he suffered a horrific motorcycle accident that led to 10 surgeries, months in the ICU, and doubts that he would walk again. It took him years to heal, but he eventually clawed his way out of the darkness to become a popular NBA analyst. See his full episode here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbFQ_GCdwgk

David Bayer built a series of highly successful internet ventures but paid a price, battling long-term drug addiction and alcoholism. He eventually recovered and embraced a new addiction…personal evolution. Today, he’s made it his mission to help people overcome their limiting beliefs through visualization to get to their optimal mindset. See his full episode here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCIBQigXR8I&t=67s

On Today's Episode:

The economic winter no one wants is here, and if you’re not snowboarding you may be standing still frozen, in denial, or completely unaware. It’s time to get your mindset around being recession proof.

“In times of recession there are massive opportunities and fortunes to be made, so for new up and coming entrepreneurs, this is the time to go and start a business.” -Richard Branson

Over the last few years we’ve dealt with many challenges as a society and many more as individuals, and one thing is for sure, you either saw opportunity, you retreated and gave into anxiety, or you froze and did nothing. During COVID, businesses were lost, and businesses were made.

Dean Graziosi has been around for well over 25 years experiencing the economic cycles, business cycles, and life’s cycles. He’s joining Tom in this episode to share his experiences through his own real life difficulties to remind you to get your mindset around the reality of the economic situation going on, and decide how you’re going to respond.

How you get through this storm is your decision. This recession doesn’t have to be all dark skies and gloom, when you’re armed with the right information. Join Dean Graziosi and Tony Robbins 5 Day Challenge, Time to Thrive in August to give yourself the advantage we all need.

“I’m scared to death but I’m going anyway.” [27:21]

“Anxiety is this double edged sword. It is the reason that I’ve had the kind of success that I’ve had.” Tom Bilyeu [29:12]

On Today's Episode:

If you’re in the middle of emotionally trying times, lost your job, death and grief over loved ones and failing relationships, we know emotional pain f*cking sucks! But what now? Sitting in these emotions forever isn’t practical or healthy. So, what are the options?

Bottle it up, push those feelings aside, and push through! You’re hardcore, you’re badass, nothing is going take you out. Just don’t think about it, move on and get gritty.

OR…

Let the pain take over until you feel like a puddle of nothing. Everything feels hopeless, the pain is unbearable, and how could you ever smile again?

Neither of these extremes are healthy ways to cope with your emotions, and as adults, if we’re honest, the majority of us suck at processing emotions. We get angry and take it out on the people closest to us. We go to work sad and hurt over a fight with our partner, now we can’t focus, productivity is low, and the quality of our work sucks.

Susan David, Harvard medical school psychologist and author of the #1 WSJ bestseller, Emotional Agility, has some strategies we can all start implementing today to learn how to process our emotions in an effective and healthier way. Her core message is that “emotions are data, not directives.”

We’re facing some really challenging times ahead and we’ve been fighting and hoping for better days since pre-Covid. This conversation answers how to deal with the difficult thoughts and use emotions as data instead of allowing them to direct a story of you starring as the victim.

You can have every valid reason to fuse with painful emotions, it doesn’t mean they’re helpful in the moment. Create space, observe what you're feeling, and identify the signpost.

QUOTES:

“The difficult emotions feel really tough, but what they are pointing to, what they are signposting, is often something that we care about…” [1:16]

“The reality of life is that beauty and fragility hold hands with one another.” [3:39]

“There is a world of difference between being stubborn versus being stupid.” [9:01]

“When we ignore those difficult emotions we also turn ourselves away from the ability to adapt and to be effective in our lives.” [9:44]

“It is not about getting hooked on the difficult emotion, but rather recognizing that our emotions are data [...] they signpost things that we care about, but they are not directives.” [23:28]

“We deal with the uncertainty by becoming more adept with emotions.” [30:52]

“If you don’t have your values in place, you won’t ever risk tragedy because all you can see is that tragedy was bad, [...] but if you have a value system that mandates you risk tragedy then it becomes worth it.” [41:13] Tom Bilyeu

“The true tragedy is when we don’t know what our values are, and when we are literally risking our lives...” [48:51]

“We are learning from our emotions so we can step into the wisdom of our values, and that’s why emotions are data and not directives.” [59:14]

“Acceptance is a prerequisite to change, [...] Acceptance is about facing into the truth of your experience and the truth of your difficult situation.” [1:09:48]

“Preparing for connection happens when you connect with yourself.” [1:33:13]

“when you're actually 80% of the way there 90% of the way there, really close to being fully spent, the thing that I lean on in that moment, is the dark side.” [25:47]

When you come across people who have success in multiple areas of their life you want to know, what’s the secret? What do they know and what are they doing that you can possibly entertain doing for yourself?

Dave Asprey may remind you of the Bulletproof Diet, and you may be familiar with him from his podcast, The Human Upgrade, but he’s also a successful entrepreneur several times over. In this episode he and Tom cover Dave’s expansive breadth of knowledge around health, fasting, and living as long as possible, while getting into top level insights of what it means to be a game changer in business.

“You must build practices that prevent you from falling prey to those basic instincts that make you a short-term thinker.” -Dave Asprey

Your health should be one of your highest priorities. Dave reminds us to keep it simple and be mindful that even small changes can have major benefits in the long run, and when you’re ready to take those benefits to the next level, there is always another simple change to be made to your lifestyle, diet and habits that will optimize your health.

“If your nervous system believes that you get a game over at the end of this game, you relax a lot more.” [1:09:01

“Happiness doesn’t come from wealth, but wealth can come from happiness, but being angry and tired and unhappy all the time is not a good way to become successful or to change the game in your field…” [1:37:56]

“The ego is the operating system that keeps you alive if there’s no human in there.” [1:53:02]

On Today's Episode:

You’re likely under pressure with the rest of the world, making decisions under intense unprecedented levels of stress. The good news is that you’re not alone. Right now, even if you’re not watching the news or following every political conversation, you know the tension is there. With everyone, including you walking on eggshells, how do you make good decisions?

Chances are you don’t think of your decisions in terms of being ethical or not, but in the grand scheme of life as a citizen of planet Earth, every decision you made so far today has been ethical or unethical. Dr. Susan Liautaud is an Ethics Expert who advises global leaders and international businesses how to develop strategic solutions to the complex ethical challenges they face. In this conversation she and Tom get deep into the weeds of what an ethical framework is, if “Cancel Culture” and the massive division we’re experiencing is ethical, and how you can live your life well and make better ethical decisions.

A few key thoughts from Dr. Liautaud to help you live a more ethical life:
Instead of canceling people, cancel language and behavior
Someone or something is going to be impacted by every decision you make
Practice really listening to what people are saying to you

We can’t create a perfect life. Dr. Liautaud explains why perfectionism is a dead end path. The 4 Pillars of Ethics she shares are worth practicing immediately.

“Ethical decision making tethers us to our humanity.” [13:16]

On Today's Episode:

What’s your biggest distraction? Is it over-thinking the most insignificant things at the worst times? Or is it more external, like social media, constant phone notifications, or what others are doing and saying? Distraction has been said to be the enemy of vision, the enemy of direction, and even the root of all failure. In this episode, Tom is answering questions to help you avoid distractions and take your goals to the next level by creating rules for yourself that will keep you on track. As Tom always says, “action cures all,” and if you find yourself easily and chronically distracted from what matters, there are definitely some nuggets of advice you can take action on right now.

SHOW NOTES:

Optimize Cognition | Tom takes it to foundational basics sleep, diet, and exercise [1:29]

QUOTES:

“Now you know what you're lying to yourself about, now we can begin to craft strategies, rule based strategies, for getting out of that” [8:38]

“sometimes, instead of pushing back against the way that we are, we can lean into it.” [13:08]

“I don't think there's anything more powerful than journaling for developing self awareness, [....] self awareness is about translating how you feel into an understanding of why you feel that thing,” [19:24]

“...recognize that you should never judge yourself through the lens of a moment. You should only judge yourself through the lens of a lifetime,” [23:52]

“It is very okay to not know what you're doing right now. It is very much not okay to stand still. The only wrong move in life ever is standing still.” [27:34]

“...love feeling good about yourself so much that you adhere to your rules even when it's boring, painful, difficult. That's when things get really really interesting.” [36:37]

How do we avoid a recipe for disaster when it’s leaving us undernourished and overfed? Max Lugavere, science journalist, NY Times best-selling author and host of the Genius Life Podcast, is joining Tom and running down the role of sugar in obesity and what foods are better to avoid when you want to optimize your body’s nourishment and stop overeating.

Medical costs due to obesity was near $173 billion in the United States in 2019. Being over weight literally has a higher price tag that reaches far beyond the personal affects and limitations it places on your body and lifestyle.

By now, we are well aware of how sugar is destroying our health, but is it really every kind of sugar, and what can you do about it to see improvement without feeling shamed and degraded for not being “skinny.” Max also addresses why being skinny and a smaller size doesn’t equate to being healthier and healthy actually looks like.

QUOTES:

“There should be no shame attached to obesity. We should be encouraging people to shift their body at any stage to a more healthy state.” [2:25]

“The reason added sugar plays a role in the obesity epidemic is because we don’t tire of consuming it…” [7:05]

“I think butter is actually a food worth relegating to the indulgence category, [...] butter is a manmade product, dairy is made by nature.” [22:50]

“That’s the problem with eating out in general, you can’t always predict how a food is going to make you feel.” [29:25]

“Approach these oils with great caution because they didn’t exist in the human food supply 200 years ago.” [39:50]

“Indulge when you choose to because no single meal, single indulgence, is going to sway your health in any direction, positive or negative.” [45:03]

In this Q & A, Tom breaks down how to reframe and learn from your failures by interrupting the wrong thoughts, and seeing what you can do better next time. He reveals exactly why having people you love doubt you can be the gift anyone can possibly offer you.

QUOTES:

“the very way that we bounce back from failure, is by looking exclusively at what we can do differently.” [5:44]

“whenever a strategy yields a result, different than the desired result, then you know, this strategy is, by definition, wrong.” [6:38]

“Yes, it's hard. Getting good at shit is hard, outperforming other people is hard. But if you want to win, you've got to do hard shit.” [17:58]

“This is like one of the key insights of my life. You should only ever do and believe that which moves you towards your goal.” [22:21]

“...failure is only permanent, if that's what you choose to believe. Reframe it, recognize you have power, recognize you have control over what you do, and recognize that if you leave people in awe [...] the only way to really have mind blowing success in life is to set the bar ridiculously high, and then surpass all expectations.” [33:20]

“the greatest gift anyone can ever give you is doubt.” [35:03]

On Today's Episode:

Roughly 1% of the world is said to be millionaires, and the fraction of the worldwide population that are billionaires are even fewer. So, no bullsh*t, what does it take to become a billionaire, or even a millionaire. The answer comes down to habits and mindset.

Ultra-successful people think and move differently from everyone else. You may have heard Jim Rohn’s quote, “successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do.” This applies across the board. If billion dollar status is a goal, and being ultra wealthy and successful is high on your list of priorities, start today with your habits. Focus on the right things that create forward progress, ask the hard questions, and question everything.

In this episode, 5 ultra-successful guests share what it takes and explain the inner workings and habits you can start to adopt and apply immediately. Dean Graziosi is an entrepreneur and investor that changed his life through real estate. Robin Sharma, former attorney turned leadership expert, has written books such as The 5 AM Club and The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari changed his life through spirituality. Ed Mylett is a peak performance expert and author of The Power of One More. Patrick Bet-David is the ultra-successful businessman from humble beginnings and author of Your Next Five Moves. Tim Ferris is an entrepreneur and investor that started the mega successful “4-Hour” self help series among other popular best selling books.

On Today's Episode:

Were you one of the 47 million Americans that voluntarily quit their job in 2021, a massive event now referred to as the Great Resignation? If you didn’t quit, maybe you came close to submitting your resignation and decided not to. The burning question is, what did people move towards after leaving their job? Was it a burn the ships at the shore kind of moment or a hasty emotional move caused by mounting stress in the moment?

No matter where you are in your career or business, there is one critical question you should be asking yourself. How are you, really?

Jenna Kutcher has pivoted her career and entrepreneurial moves more than a few times. She’s not a stranger to adversity, stress, disappointment or asking the hard questions. From wedding photography, to podcast host, to helping entrepreneurs grow their email list, Jenna shares her secret sauce to pivoting career moves successfully, and how to align with success in a way that is fulfilling and feels right to you.

Stop falling into the hustle culture trap and start asking yourself questions that awaken you at your core. Hustle culture isn’t necessarily all-in, burn the ships, forget sleep, your sanity, your rest and recovery. There’s another path and another option to achieving the success you’re after.

On Today's Episode:

Why is being rich something so many people want, but so few achieve. Does being successful guarantee becoming rich? Obviously that requires you to define what success is for you and your journey. The funny twist in all of this is that being rich is so easily fantasized and yet the work it takes to become rich and successful is barely thought of.

Jim Rohn said, “Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do.” As hard as that is to accept as truth, it is evident when you look at elite athletes, world-class performers, and the best of the best in any field.

When you watch this, understand that Tom’s drive is always fulfillment, meaning, and purpose. The work it takes to achieve his level of success is not easy nor is it for the faint of heart. It’s not impossible, and it’s not the only path forward, but it has proven to be majorly successful over and over again. The path to becoming rich and successful is going to require you to dig deep and it requires skills, grit, and determination for you to tap into a level of potential you never knew was possible.

“Your dreams won’t make you happy, [...] unless you’re intentional about them.” [11:43]

“Even if you’re consuming killer, uplifting, inspirational content all the time, even that’s problematic. You have to be able to sit with your own thoughts.” [32:23]

‘We’re so disconnected from our bodies and our innermost thoughts, we’re so up here in our head, moving forward, learning new things, consuming more and more and more that actually, we’re not listening to the signals that our body is sending us.” [36:58]

QUOTES:

“Being able to reflect and observe the different voices inside of us is a great place to start your self-awareness because the biggest challenge for most of us is that we don’t know what we’re listening to.” [2:40]

“The problem is we have a list for the one that we want and we don’t have a list for what we need to become, and I don’t mean become to attract, I mean become to just be. Just get to know yourself.” [15:33]

“We think that when we’re full, we’re safe. Our ego makes us believe that when you’re full, when you think you know is all, that’s when you’re safe. The craziest thing is that’s when you are at your weakest.” [26:26]

“We need to have the awareness of developing the emotional skills that our parents didn’t have.” [32:33]

“The first step is just opening yourself up to new experiences and new role models.” [53:43]

“We live in this perception of a perception of ourselves, hence my identity is what my parents think I should be.” [54:28]

“Your passion is for you, your purpose is for others. Your passion makes you happy, but when you use your passion to make a difference in someone else’s life, that’s a service, that’s a purpose.” [1:03:52]

“You have to seek the love and the beauty in what you want in what you have now.” [1:13:38]

How The System Keeps YOU POOR! (Money Myths That Keep You Broke) | Jaspreet Singh on Impact Theory

To learn more about Web3, Impact Theory has created a free resource for all that are interested. You are welcome to explore and learn with us as we continue to grow: https://web3u.impacttheory.com/

Big goals require DISCIPLINE. By it's very nature, discipline requires you to do hard things - and that is a skill you can LEARN. I'm teaching my process to build Ironclad Discipline in a new workshop - you can register at discipline.impacttheory.com!

Show Notes:

With talks of a global recession on the rise, there is no better time to put your growth mindset to work. Are you ready to revolutionize the way you think about money, inflation and the impending recession?

Chief Executive Money Nerd at Minority Mindset Companies from Punjab, India, Jaspreet Singh has been putting in the work to spread financial education and opportunity on YouTube for years. The goal of this episode is to get you to understand what money really is and give you the knowledge you need to change how you’re using it in your day to day life.

The majority of people will unfortunately continue to become poor and the harsh reality for many is that they won’t even see what’s happening in time if at all. We are dedicated to pulling people out of the matrix and helping them see that human potential is nearly limitless. That includes getting people to see the objective truth about the government's role in the financial system, who the Feds are, and how wealthy, financially educated people think and use money differently from poor, financially uneducated people.

Tom openly shares his example of how you can be a good entrepreneur and bad investor from not asking the right questions. You can start turning the tables and making better decisions to not just prepare for a potential recession, but to also start building real wealth. It’s all mindset, it’s a growth mindset and a minority mindset when you’re willing to learn and understand who your teachers are.

QUOTES:

“The interesting thing about the Federal Reserve Bank is it’s called the Federal Reserve Bank, however it’s not federal, it says so on their website. They’re not a reserve, they don’t keep cash reserves anywhere. They’re not a bank! You and I can’t go there to deposit money.” [2:00]

“If you understand the system then you can use it to your advantage. If you don’t understand the systemI it is going to screw you over many, many times.” [2:23]

“Inflation is what causes the supply chain issues and now we’re trying to go backwards, but this is where the rich get rich and the poor get poorer...” [8:29]

“Inflation is a hidden tax, it’s a silent tax. It affects the people that don’t understand money, and it disproportionately affects the poor and the financially uneducated, [...] if you don’t understand this you’re going to get screwed over.” [13:53]

“I was dumb because I didn’t really care about risk, I never even looked at risk, for me it was opportunity, that’s all I saw. It was a way for me to get started.” [24:18]

“Everybody in America should be a business owner, however, not everybody should be in the business of starting a company and not everybody should be in the business of operating a company.” [28:42]

“I like to call it net zero thinking, where if I have cash I need to spend it, [...] it’s the consumer mindset of, if I have this money, I need to spend it.” [36:48]

“You’re never going to be able to out save inflation. Your savings are literally making you poorer each and every day.” [38:27]

“You have to be the one now to go out of your way to start learning this, and thank God for YouTube because now we’ve decentralized education.” [42:21]

The fountain of youth is a mythical spring that has been the basis of many Hollywood movies and cosmetic marketing campaigns! Our obsession with youth and being young forever has been the source of cosmetic surgery and endless stories of ‘back in my day’.

David Sinclair is a Professor in the Department of Genetics and co-Director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging at Harvard Medical School. As a professor, scientific investigator and co-founder of multiple biotech companies, his knowledge with epigenetics and reverse aging is highly regarded among professional colleagues in the industry. He’s appeared on dozens of podcasts, written books, and hosts his own podcast, Lifespan. As a guest on Health Theory the conversations around reverse aging and biological clocks are more than enlightening.

Finding the root cause to aging and understanding how diet, exercise, and lifestyle choices impact our aging process puts the power of perspective and knowledge within your control. You don’t have to guess or hope for a mythical spring of magical water that holds the secret of youth. You can make a decision everyday to turn back the clock, slow the aging process, and reset your age.

“Anything that stresses your body, puts it into a state of shock is good in the long run.” [38:16]

“When I boiled it down to its essence I realized aging was a loss of information.” [1:01:58]

Show Notes:

Global recession is being talked about literally everywhere. Between the gas pump and groceries alone you can’t help but feel the tension rising.

Raoul Pal, a former hedge fund manager that retired at the age of 36, serial entrepreneur, and global macro investor expert is joining Tom for a second time to discuss the realities people need to be aware of to thrive in a global recession.

A word of wisdom he shares that was passed on to him is, “he who has cash in a recession is king.” The bottom line Raoul is openly sharing is that income and the ability to advance on opportunities makes all the difference.

“Buy when there’s blood in the streets, even if the blood is your own.” - Nathan Rothschild

Having a solid work ethic, a strong (and maybe unreasonably optimistic) belief, coupled with income and the knowledge to look for moments of extreme weakness to buy and make moves, without leverage, against opportunities can get you to the other side of this crisis potentially better off than when it all began.

You get to decide what to focus on. Will it be the existential global crises or the opportunities most are too scared to see or take advantage of?

QUOTES:

“Prices rising, inflation, is evil for our savings because the dollar in your bank account is worth less in a year’s time.” [3:03]

“As prices go up, the economy slows down [...] and therefore it becomes self regulating, and it becomes that because people are quite in debt.” [11:16]

“Leverage allows you to borrow future money to use now [...] We’re trying to meet the expectation of our future selves always, that’s what drives humans.” [22:11]

“This is what people don’t understand about leverage. You don’t own that thing, you only own it when you pay it off.” [26:35]

‘Everyone’s got debts cause we borrowed for our future selves.” [37:58]

“Humans have a propensity to borrow to create the image of this future self. [...] that dream we had in the 50s, that dream died decades ago, and to fund that dream, the mismatch between the dream and the reality is debt. Sometimes debt is not all bad. Sometimes it can help accelerate some of the things, but if you’re doing it to fund a dream that is never going to exist, that’s the danger.” [47:23]

“Focus on your income, work hard, look for other opportunities that can leverage that income and opportunity set that you’ve got for you, [...] look for investment opportunities that can change my life.” [57:51]

“You can’t be in it to win it if you’ve got leverage, or if you’re out of the market.” [1:05:52]

“Where are we in the volatility, and is this going to survive? [...] and if the long term trend is there, then you should be buying into all of this.” [1:13:18]

“Change is happening, and you can fear it, but you’re not going to stop it.” [1:25:53]

“Always out of bad times eventually is the good times, and it’s the same with investing. That cycle is pretty common, and it’s a very human trait.” [1:28:24]

The ULTIMATE ADVICE For Every Young Person! (HOW TO SUCCEED IN LIFE) | Tom Bilyeu
4943
As you know, it’s my mission to help teach you how to build the MINDSET and SKILLS that will help you live an extraordinary life - and over the last few months I’ve been working hard behind the scenes to help create a brand-new tool that will help you do that.
It’s called Kyzen - and I am proud to announce that I will be bringing it to the world later this year to challenge you to empower yourself and accomplish greater things in life. To learn more, join my Discord at impacttheory.com/discord!.

Have you ever realized that the very things that lead to success, purpose, and fulfillment are the things nearly everyone runs away from? Discomfort, hard work, uncomfortable situations and conversations, are the things that no one desires more of, and yet…

The ability to build a wildly successful and scalable business is within reach for nearly everyone reading this, and yet through self-selection on the few will do what needs to be done to rise to the top. Of the few that rise to the top, even fewer will do so feeling fulfilled in their life.

It takes much more than skills and relationships to be successful. It takes grit and determination to do the hard things. It requires you go through emotionally taxing, ego killing moments of failure, humility, and self-realization to become adaptable and become who you want to be.

In this keynote, Tom reveals the hard facts of entrepreneurship and what it takes to be in the 1%. “If you’re only good in the beginning you lack grit.” After watching this it’s time for a hard self-talk and challenge to yourself. It’s time for a no B.S. approach of what will it take to build yourself into the person you desire to be. Don’t underestimate what you are capable of, stop thinking too small and get uncomfortable.

Tom’s 6 Ways to Develop New Skills:
Always be reading
Open yourself up to change
What you believe is a choice
Be an eternal student
Become antifragile
Develop Grit

Tom’s Reading List: https://impacttheory.com/reading-list/

“To those human beings who are of any concern to me I wish suffering, desolation, sickness, ill treatment, indignities - I wish that they should not remain unfamiliar with profound self-contempt, the torture of self-mistrust, the wretchedness of the vanquished: I have no pity for them, because I wish them the only thing that can prove today whether one is worth anything or not - that one endures.” -Nietzche

“Each and every one of you at some point in your life, you’re going to hit rock bottom. The question isn’t will you hit rock bottom? The question is what are you going to do with yourself when it happens?” [2:15]

The game you think you’re playing is money, but I promise, the game you’re actually playing is brain chemistry.” [4:36]

“I don’t care if you have a dream. I’m so uninterested in empty dreamers, I can’t see straight. What I care about? Do you have the fortitude to fail.” [8:00]

“Saving the world, doing the right thing, thinking about your customer, wanting them to win, wanting them to shine, wanting great things for your employees, it’s big f*cking business.” [15:35]

“I’m a grand fan of doing and believing that which moves you toward your goals.” [18:34]

“Everyone is your superior in some way, and once you learn to check your ego, sit at their feet with absolute humility and be open to their ideas, especially the one that contradicts what you believe today, then you’ll get somewhere” [26:06]

“Doing more work than anyone else is required for greatness” [50:16]

“Now you’re going to have to be transparent, now you’re going to have to tell people what you stand for, and the thing you stand for better be the creation of value.” [1:00:19]

“What’s going to keep people from losing faith in your company as you get bigger is feeling connected to a person.” [1:04:41]

“As much as you can be an early adopter, so much the better. It’s always the early adopters that win.” [1:09:51]

Along your journey to personal growth, success, and the pursuit of happiness you experience a broad range of emotions. Some days you’re up winning and on top of the world, while others days you can't even justify going on.

What is the standard you’re setting for yourself?

Being able to keep a promise to yourself may be one of the most important things you can ever do, and yet it’s something most of us struggle with. Instead of beating yourself down, learn the foundational skills and ideas you need to master to be able to change your life and extend your capacity for success.

“The only thing that matters is how you feel about yourself when you are by yourself.”
-Tom Bilyeu

Ed Mylett’s experience with his father isn’t the kind of experience people anticipate success to be on the other side of, yet he’s joining Tom for a second time to discuss the reason he wrote his new book, The Power of One More: The Ultimate Guide to Happiness and Success, following the loss of his father.

If you’re in a place struggling with reaching your true potential, meeting you highest self, and achieving greater levels of success, Ed shares why getting on the other side of your day to day inconveniences is the best path forward.

Change your relationship with pain and discomfort and stop allowing your shame and embarrassment to disqualify you from the life you were meant to live.

“As the island of my knowledge grows, so do the shores of my ignorance”

TRY THIS For 7 Days To NEVER BE LAZY & Stop Negative Thoughts! (Do This Daily) | Mel Robbins
5300
As you know, it’s my mission to help teach you how to build the MINDSET and SKILLS that will help you live an extraordinary life - and over the last few months I’ve been working hard behind the scenes to help create a brand-new tool that will help you do that.
It’s called Kyzen - and I am proud to announce that I will be bringing it to the world later this year to challenge you to empower yourself and accomplish greater things in life. To learn more, join my Discord at impacttheory.com/discord!.

So it’s safe to assume that you are likely having a biological experience. The external expectations involuntarily placed on you amount to pressure and loss of self-identity, values and beliefs. On the other hand, the internal expectations you willingly place on yourself can put you into a state of anxiety with doubts, disappointment and indecisiveness.

So take a step back from yourself for a moment and consider the number of decisions you passively make everyday while living a less than fulfilling life.

If you’re not happy with where you are, how you live, what you do, the money you make (or don’t make) and the success you wish for but never have, it comes down to indecisiveness and lack of action.

Mel Robbins is an American attorney, best selling author, motivational speaker, and straight shooter. She’s introduced two of the simplest tools anyone can use starting right now to go from autopilot to decision maker moving towards your dreams.

“I hope you have a massive a-ha moment, but it’s not going to mean shit if you don’t take action and do something about it.” This is Mel’s wish for you today. You can trick your brain to do what’s important and beat the habit loops that keep sabotaging you everyday.

It’s time for you to stop fighting for your excuses. Stop arguing against the dreams you want and wish for, and start making the decisions for better results day by day, hour by hour, and second, by second. It’s as easy as counting down, 5-4-3-2-1, and go!

Trick your brain to do what’s important and beat the habit loops that sabotage you everyday
Change yourself and gain the ability to start dealing with the problems you’re experiencing

QUOTES:

“You can truly trace every single problem or complaint in your life to silence and hesitation. Those are decisions.” [1:33]

“If you’re stuck that’s the problem. The problem is you’re in your head, you’re thinking. That is the universal problem, and it all starts with the knowledge of what to do and then you hesitate and you think about whether or not you feel like doing it.” [10:29]

“You have about a five second window in which you can move from idea to action before your brain kicks into full gear and sabotages any change in behavior.” [15:07]

“Confidence is the ability to move from thought to action because when you’re a confident person you believe enough in yourself and capabilities that you’re willing to try.” [26:08]
“People are making a fundamental mistake. You are withholding the very support, empowerment, and celebration that you need to change, and to do the hard work, and to face the things that you’re scared of, and that’s why you’re not changing.” [33:07]

“The thing about jealousy is that it’s just your inspiration that’s blocked. Jealousy is sort of the insecurity that you have that blocks this inspiration.” [46:58]

“Most folks know what they dream about and what they want, and yet they spend all of their time and energy arguing against what they want.” [1:13:58]

The STOIC SECRETS That Will Change Your Life FOR GOOD (Nobody Shares This!) | Ryan Holiday
2769
My amazing and talented wife Lisa released her new book Radical Confidence, which you can order - and get the bonuses she’s created for you - at https://www.radicalconfidence.com. When you read this book, Lisa will teach you 10 No-BS Life Lessons to become the hero of your own life and take MASSIVE bold action to achieve your potential!

What does it mean to live a good life filled with purpose? Obviously, the answer can only be personal to your individual preferences, values, and beliefs, but are you consciously deciding the quality of your life?

Ryan Holiday is a best-selling author times 10, media strategist, influential speaker, and bookstore owner. He’s best known for his writings on ancient stoic philosophy and its application for everyday life. The New York Times credited Ryan for the increasing popularity of stoicism.

In this discussion, Ryan shares his thoughts and lessons learned about how he came to see what living a good life is for him. Questioning the things you give your time and energy over is the beginning for any of us that want to unpack what we’re doing, who we’re doing it for, and how it adds value with meaning to us. It’s not enough to be a human doing any and everything without intention and clarity. Ryan points out that it's better to learn and practice what it is to just be a human “being.”

If the day to day mindless actions of work, preparing dinner, and stressing over getting more clients to increase your revenue is part of your reality, then taking this time to thing through what the right goal is for your to focus on and what you want out of life may be the most important moment in your life thus far.

QUOTES:

“We seem to have a limitless capacity to steal time from ourselves.” [2:49]

“We protect our physical space much more than we protect our time, even though physical space can be regained and time can never be regained.” [3:15]

“If you think that action is the end all be all, you end up doing action for the sake of doing action, [...] sometimes you’re just supposed to just be.” [4:24]

“It’s this balance. Once you’ve arrived, the thing that got you there is now in some ways your worst enemy.” [8:18]

“Where ego comes in is like we've got the things that impress other people, and then the real meaningful impact that we're trying to have.” [12:12]

“What do people do with their money? They buy freedom, but oftentimes, they give up freedom to get money. [17:47]

“It's about sort of cultivating an awareness, and a process of continual reflection on the data that your life is creating all the time.” [23:39]

“You're not trying to get to perfection right now. You're just trying to get a little bit better than you were yesterday or an hour ago.” [25:16]

“If you're trying to be everything for everyone, and you read feedback, you're just going to get more lost.” [31:45]

“If I'm going to use my emotions, I want to be calm internally, but projecting the emotional response that's going to be effective in that situation, but I don't want to be jerked around by those emotions unconsciously.” [40:30]

"We have a limitless capacity to steal time from ourselves." Tom Bilyeu

By now you may be aware of bitcoin’s origin story that begins following the 2008 financial crisis. The essence of cryptocurrency continues to evolve with every new blockchain technology. It’s an innovative space being fueled with unprecedented energy. In the midst of so many innovations on blockchain, bitcoin continues to stand as a storehouse of value that no other cryptocoin has been able to compete with.

Muneeb Ali is a Pakistani computer scientist with a PhD in computer science from Princeton, co-founder and CEO of Trust Machines. He is co-founded the Stacks project, a unique programming software created to be smart contract layer that sits on top of bitcoin minus the tension. Muneeb is CEO of Hiro, a developer tooling company.

In this conversation Muneeb and Tom discuss the unique attributes that allow bitcoin to stand high above the rest and the likeliness of its usability in a practical marketplace. This is about a deeper understanding to what is incentivizing blockchain, why it’s drawing in so many people, and its implications to web 3.0

“DeFi has 100% visibility into what risk exists in the market and how it’s going to work.” [38:25]

“It’s abundantly clear now to me, especially in the last couple of years, that the rate at which this industry is evolving, regulators just can’t keep up.” [56:17]

“If something is not truly decentralized you’re losing the best property that these systems bring, and bitcoin is by far the most decentralized blockchain out there.” [1:01:49]

“What this is allowing to happen at a financial level is you’re giving me the incentive to learn this and put energy into it.” Tom Bilyeu [1:05:19]

“The only thing that people need to understand about Stacks is that it is simply a two-layer solution on top of bitcoin, so there’s no tension between a money layer and a smart contract layer.” [1:08:05]

Avoid These DAILY RISK FACTORS To Prevent BRAIN INFLAMMATION! | Datis Kharazian
3383
Permeable blood brain barrier and gut barrier connected to inflammation and autoimmunity diseases is enough to make anyone’s head spin.

Dealing with these health conditions can be frightening and endless. Your body’s reaction to proteins and your immune response can be highly frustrating when you’re being instructed to follow “protocols” and standards of treatment.

If you or someone you love has felt betrayed living a standard healthy lifestyle only to fall prey to gut issues, autoimmune disease and declining cognition, you’re not alone.

Dr. Datis Kharrazian is a world-renowned functional medicine health care provider. He specializes in managing chronic diseases, autoimmunity and neurological problems. He treats his patients with non-pharmaceuticals, and is in extremely high demand from patients and other healthcare professionals wanting to learn his clinical models.

In this episode, Dr. Kharrazian is addressing the flaw with medical treatments that over standardize what people are experiencing and the causes. He’s explaining why giving blanket treatments and protocols can cause patients far worse health conditions than where they started.

QUOTES:

“The same inflammatory oxidative stress mechanisms that break down the gut barrier can also break down the blood brain barrier.” [2:20]

“We’re all at risk for developing autoimmune disease, and the rates of autoimmune disease now exceed cancer and cardiovascular disease combined.” [20:33]

“The more diverse your gut bacteria microbiome is, the more immune regulation you have, the greater tolerance you have, and things like exercise improves gut microbiome diversity.” [32:00]

“I do not have a protocol. I think protocols are inefficient.” [42:09]

“Stress when it’s controlled and it’s past a person’s abilities, can be devastating to the brain.” [46:35]

“Whatever you can’t do, you do! That’s a simple concept of neurological rehab.” [52:24]

Given all of the possibilities we have living in a modern society, people still struggle with feeling lost, unhappy, and unfulfilled.

It’s even been reported that American unhappiness hit a record low early this year. If you do a climate check with the people in your life and your social media pages, it’s not hard to see that sadly behind some of the smiles, there’s a feeling of unhappiness in the air.

Arthur C. Brooks is the William Henry Bloomberg Professor of the Practice of Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School and Professor of Management Practice at the Harvard Business School. He’s discussing why he felt called to explore and research the human experience and model of what actually brings us happiness.

If money, fame, power, and pleasure doesn’t bring permanent happiness, then what does? How can you ensure a trajectory of life that leads to happiness and fulfillment?

Is aging gracefully and being healthy in your old age a goal or something that’s nice to hope for with no real expectations? If you search for tips on how to age gracefully, you get tips for how to be more mindful, be more forgiving, stay curious, keep learning, and more. You’ll find a few tips around staying physically active, but you don’t see a lot of advice (if any) on building muscle, getting in the gym, hitting the weights, and putting your body under stress.

Dr. Gabrielle Lyon began her 20+ year career in geriatric medicine and palliative care. In her observations and studies on people in declining physical and mental health she became passionately aware of the missed opportunity in the medical community. Chronic diseases commonly associated with aging such as Alzheimers, cardiac disease, and diabetes, were being studied without addressing the underlying source that’s contributing to the problems, deteriorating skeletal muscle.

By the end of this episode, if you’re not convinced on the power of muscle building you may want to rewatch. Whether you are male or female, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, or older, everyone needs to be invested in building muscle tissue to age gracefully and have a better quality of life. Healthy aging isn’t just about maintaining mental cognition with a failing body, it’s about having quality interactions and the physical ability to stand, walk, and travel without the fear of falling or being dependent on everyone for everything.

QUOTES:

“If you eat food that is subthreshold to that 2.5g of leucine you will be skinny fat…” [2:42]

“The wider the waistline the lower the brain volume.” [23:19]

“Lifestyle, choices midlife, having access to the right information changes the trajectory of aging.” [23:41]

“Muscle is a nutrient sensing organ.” [34:26]

“In the literature high quality protein is defined by amino acid content. It’s not a negotiable nebulous concept; these are hard fast biological numbers.” [36:47]

“When we’re talking about the general population, typically people don't have a good solid foundational muscular base.” [43:33]

“Everybody’s focused on adiposity, everybody’s focusing on insulin resistance, and if you care about root causes you have to care about skeletal muscle.” [45:22]

“You have to train hard, [...] you have to get the stress in. The body thrives under stress, [...] your body requires physical stress.” [56:34]

“When we are older, 30s, 40s, we are now no longer driven by hormones. We are now driven by dietary sensing mechanisms.” [57:27]

“You have to get the foundational piece right up front, and that is high quality training is a non-negotiable, and number two, high quality proteins.” [57:50]

“If you want to survive, the more muscle you have the more likely you’ll survive.” [1:05:53]

“Obesity, diabetes, Alzheimers, cardiovascular disease, these are pathologies. These are metabolic pathologies that can be corrected by having healthy muscle tissue.” [1:08:27]

So how many Instagram posts and YouTube videos have influenced your vision of fitness, overall health, and proper diet? How many have you tried that left you frustrated and pissed off? Probably too many to count or recall. We’re bombarded with misinformation about fitness, exercise, and diet at nauseum. It’s not getting you or anyone closer to the results you really desire, and it almost makes the results you want a bit unclear and confusing.

Sal DiStefano is no newcomer to the fitness scene. By the age of 19 he was already general manager at a local gym. Unfortunately for him, but lucky for you and all of his clients since, he had a health scare of his own from an autoimmune disorder which resulted in him losing 15 pounds of muscle! Sal refocused and started learning more about gut health, hormone health and how to prioritize health over appearance.

His book, The Resistance Training Revolution, breaks down fitness misconceptions that social media and bad diet fads are flooding you with. In this episode, break through the idea of relying on cardio to burn those extra calories and start realizing the amazing benefits strength training offers your body. Stop training just to lose weight fast and look good, and make the mindset shift to start approaching diet and exercise for the right reasons, so it becomes lifelong and sustainable.

Some of life’s experiences are not exclusive to color, race, or sex. Feeling stuck, unhappy in a situation, and having uncertainty and fear around how to navigate through it or remain in it is something nearly everyone can identify with.

Knowing how to get yourself out of the situations that make you feel small is challenging. The mindset that keeps you from succeeding in a life you only dream of is something that can be changed, but where do you begin?

Lisa Bilyeu, President of Impact Theory, creator and host of Women of Impact is with hubby, Tom Bilyeu, sharing exactly how she took herself from a stay-at-home super supportive wife to ultra-successful serial entrepreneur. In her new book, Radical Confidence, Lisa shares her struggles with life’s plans taking a wrong turn, struggling with confidence, and going after a life that truly mattered to her.

For Lisa, being backed against the wall in these do or die circumstances forced her to have the difficult but honest conversations with herself about what she wanted, who she wanted to become, and how she was going to get there. The alternative was not an outcome Lisa was willing to accept. She’s built a heck of a toolkit along the way to becoming courageous and confident as f*ck in her bad b*ch boots. There are major gems here for anyone no matter where you are in your journey.

Lisa reminds us to embrace the beauty of you, be compassionate, and be sensitive, but never to the detriment of losing yourself.

“The negative mindset of, who the hell do I think I am, is always there, but I just don't let her stop me, and I use her now to my advantage to help me get to where I want to go.” [49:18]

“When you ask yourself these questions, you can't put the pressure on yourself about the judgment [and] the shame of what will come from answering, you just need the truth.” [50:49]

“I want to be light, but not to the detriment of my frickin goal. So you better believe I gotta get tough, I got to set boundaries, I've got to really own what I want…” [52:11]

“You can have the beauty of being compassionate and having a heart and caring about what you do. And you can also be frickin tough as nails…” [53:19]

If the allure of social media is connection, then the allure of the metaverse will be social experiences in a virtual world like never seen before. It’s likely you’ve heard that a confused mind says, no and in this very special episode Mark Zuckerberg joins Tom to share his thoughts around what the metaverse can potentially do for social connection and community.

The unchartered territory of building a metaverse economy leaves the door wide open to what Mark calls an immersive internet that will change gaming and how and where you are able to work. Building technology in a space that hasn’t been created is no easy feat, yet Mark Zuckerberg, who needs no introduction, has been doing this for nearly two decades.

Even if you’ve yet to explore metaverse, virtual reality, and NFTs, Mark’s insights to how he’s been building one of the largest companies on the planet is a business class unto itself. This is also a great look into the possible use cases and the direction this innovative technology will grow within the next several years.

Meta NFT announcement at a glance:

Starting this week we’ll begin testing Digital Collectibles on Instagram, which will allow a small group of U.S. creators and collectors to share NFTs on Instagram that they have created or bought. In the future, we will also roll out Digital Collectibles on Facebook and allow people to display and share their digital collectibles as AR stickers in Instagram Stories, bringing the benefits of this technology to even more creators and collectors.


Details on how digital collectibles will work:

Creators and collectors in this test group will be able to post NFTs that they created or own on Instagram by linking third-party digital wallets in-app.

NFTs displayed on the app will receive a special ‘shimmer’ visual treatment and both the creator and owner of the NFT will be attributed for the content.

Starting at launch, the blockchains that are supported include Ethereum and Polygon, with Flow and Solana coming soon.

The third-party wallets compatible for use at launch will include Rainbow, MetaMask, and Trust Wallet, with Coinbase and Dapper coming soon.

There will be no fees associated with posting or sharing a digital collectible on Instagram.

Soon, we will roll out digital collectibles on Facebook, and will also soon allow people to display and share their digital collectibles as AR stickers in Instagram Stories, bringing the benefits of this technology to even more creators and collectors.


Mark on NFTs as a form of expression:

"I think our whole thrust as a company is around helping people connect and communicate. Part of communication is your exchanging information, but a lot of it is signaling and expression and kind of saying something about yourself and trying to find like-minded people and form communities and express your values… And I think that there's no reason to think that will be any different in digital spaces. That's a lot of what early social networks started off as, and I think that they've become more sophisticated in terms of helping people express and share and kind of project the expression that they want. But when I think about NFTs in the metaverse, I think if you're spending a lot of time [in the metaverse] – whether it's working in VR if a fair amount of your meetings are happening in virtual reality in the metaverse. Or, as a hologram sitting there with someone, then you're going to care about what you look [like] there. And, you're probably not going to want to wear the same thing every day, right? So you're probably going to have a collection of clothing and digital objects, just like you have clothing in the physical world. And you're going to want that clothing to be meaningful and express something about you. So you're not just gonna want it to be generic, like a lot of these early systems. What color shirt do you want? Which designer made it? Which creator made it? That's going to be meaningful. And I think that that needs a whole format for commerce. And I think NFTs are going to be a really important part of that."

Given the stress of the global environment we are living through. Daily threats to our finances, freedom, and relationships, people are living on edge and tensions are high. Outburst at home during family time slips more often and road rage is becoming common behavior. Tensions are high and with that comes heightened emotional responses.

Leonard Mlodinow is an American physicist, screenplay writer, and a five time NY Times best selling author. He and Tom discuss the context of being emotional and understanding how feelings shape our thoughts and our actions from his latest book, Emotional, How Feeling Shape Our Thinking. Leonard reveals the importance of knowing your emotional tendencies, how to regulate your emotions and make conscious decisions for a better emotional response. If you’ve ever thought people were either emotional thinkers or rational, this conversation is going to open your mind to a much bigger picture.

QUOTES:

“Emotions go hand and hand with rational thinking. There is no rational thinking without emotion. If you think at any point, ‘I’m thinking purely objectively and rationally without any emotion's, you're just wrong.” [3:54]

“Every thought that you have is influenced by your emotions.” [6:35]

“Each emotion is a state of calculation.” [14:09]

“If you don’t want to feel that anger there’s something you can do about it. That anger comes from an appraisal, [...] to reappraise it, you tell yourself a different story.” [17:59]

“You want to look for an interpretation of what happened that is both true and optimistic.” Tom Bilyeu [32:53]

“Liking is a little less direct than wanting. Liking makes you want, makes you do it. Wanting makes you do it directly.” [50:21]

“Your BEHAVIOR Won’t Be The Same!” Master Dopamine For MOTIVATION & FOCUS | Dr. Andrew Huberman
6565
My amazing and talented wife Lisa is releasing her new book Radical Confidence, which you can preorder - and get the bonuses she’s created for you - at https://www.radicalconfidence.com. When you read this book, Lisa will teach you 10 No-BS Life Lessons to become the hero of your own life and take MASSIVE bold action to achieve your potential!

Dr. Andrew Huberman is a neuroscientist who continues educating audiences about brain development, brain plasticity and the inner workings of dopamine. He’s showing people how to hack their behaviors and rewire their thinking for optimal performance and outcomes.

Consider this episode a masterclass on all things dopamine. Dr. Huberman takes the complication out of neuroscience and simplifies how dopamine is tied to motivation, craving, and even perception of time. One of the many takeaways in the episode is that idea that small incremental steps towards a bigger outcome and purpose is worth celebrating if you want to get the benefit of dopamine rewards. Dopamine isn’t necessarily about huge wins and achieving big goals. It’s about the pursuit and craving of those goals. It’s about enjoying the journey and not just focusing on the destination or result. The information Dr. Huberman is unpacking here is going to be significant to anyone in pursuit of a highly successful and meaningful life.


SHOW NOTES:

25:09 | Break Addiction to Negative Thoughts
44:06 | Master Focus, Reduce Overindulging
1:10:46 | Pursue Challenge, Reward Small Wins
1:36:37 | The Power of Dopamine

QUOTES:

“Celebrating the win more than the pursuit, it actually sets you up for failure in the future.” [1:48]

“Dopamine itself is not the reward, it's the build up to the reward. And the reward has more of a kind of opioid bliss like property” [15:41]

“Pursue rewards, but understand that the pursuit is actually the reward. If you want to have repeated wins.” [16:13]

“Pleasure experienced without prior requirements for pursuit is terrible for us.” [17:22]

“Agitation and stress were designed to get us up and move us, and when we try and fight that too much, and we try and quiet that stress, that actually can be problematic.” [37:11]

“If you have negative thoughts, just remember, I can also introduce positive thoughts the same way I can control running around the block. Positive thoughts are the equivalent of forward physical action.” [42:16]

“All the segments of your life are noted by peaks in dopamine, or the way that you happen to conceptualize dopamine.” [45:33]

“When people's dopamine is low, they tend to overestimate, okay, okay. And when people's dopamine is high, they tend to underestimate time.” [47:47]

“Dopamine is a very misunderstood molecule, it's often talked about only in the context of reward, [...] what's often not discussed is that dopamine is secreted in route to rewards...” [1:22:25]

“The molecule dopamine when secreted in the brain, makes us pursue things, build things, create things, makes us want new things that we don't currently already have.” [1:42:45]

When you consider the amount of stress and global crises going on, there’s no wonder why people are stressed, overly anxious and struggling with confidence. Whether the pain you experience in physical or mental and emotional in nature, you’re looking for relief and a way to find peace and mental equilibrium while crushing your goals in life.

Self -hypnosis is a drug-free, highly effective, “style of concentration not a therapy” says Dr. David Spiegel. It’s about cognitive flexibility that allows you to solve problems in a way that helps you gain control and maximize your focus and concentration. Dr. Spiegel is the Director of the Center on Stress and Health who specializes in hypnotherapy. He’s joining Tom and discussing cognitive restructuring through the lens of hypnotherapy.

QUOTES:

“Where people make a big mistake about hypnosis is they think it’s about losing control. It’s actually a powerful means to gain control.” [3:00]

“You’re worrying less about what else you might be thinking about, and you’re allowing your executive control network to more strongly connect with your body. So, it’s a state of highly focused attention…” [8:11]

“You may not be able to control what’s making you anxious, but you can control how your body’s feeling, you can control how your body is reacting to the stressor.” [18:11]

“We don't see medication as necessarily being bad in the same way that we have with hypnosis [...] but it's still around because there's something powerful and helpful about.” [22:51]

“Being open and accepting [and] concentrating very intently is a good learning strategy.” [26:44]

“Providing intense emotional support can help people help their bodies cope with even a very serious illness.” [50:51]

When it comes to mental toughness, discipline, and being hardcore like no other, very few people can stand with absolute confidence. By now, you’ve realized how hard life is. Maybe your future didn’t work out the way you and your family expected. Maybe you’re convinced the world you grew up in is hostile, dark and heartless towards someone like you.

Living with a victim mindset isn’t going to change your situation. Learning how to meet yourself where you are and stare at your inadequacies with total and radical honesty may be the most difficult thing you ever do, but perhaps it’s the only way out of the messed up life you’re living now.

David Goggins, former Navy Seal, ultra marathon runner, athlete and total badass knows what it takes to build a level of mental toughness very few people truly know about. His radical approach to building himself from an overweight “nobody” to one of the toughest people alive makes many people uncomfortable, but inspires the heck out of many more.

If you’re like most people, odds are that you’re not exactly where you want to be in life.

But no matter what your definition of success is, or what you’re trying to accomplish, the simple truth is this: you’re not yet where you want to be because you don’t yet have the skills required to get there.

In this talk at the Ice House in Pasadena, CA, I dive deep into the hard truths about what it takes to become extraordinary, regardless of what you’re pursuing.

If you’re feeling stuck, lacking ambition, or just don’t think you’re good enough to get where you want to go, then buckle up because this talk will shake you out of your comfort zone and get you back on track to pursuing a life of fulfillment!

“Facing what you've done wrong, owning it, accepting it, allows you to not make that mistake the next time.” [33:07]

“Every time something goes wrong in my life, I am asking myself one simple question. “What is it that I suck at?” I suck at something, there's something I'm doing wrong. By definition, if I were doing it right, then I would be getting the outcome that I wanted.” [37:50]

“The first step in this incredibly arduous journey that you're going to be on if you want to be extraordinary, is simply to believe you can become extraordinary.” [1:03:29]

It’s a simple fact of being a human that, at some point in your life, you’re going to face adversity.

The question is - how are you going to choose to face it? What will be your mentality?

Will you choose the victim mentality? Or the victor mentality?

When Former Navy SEAL Jason Redman was severely wounded by a spray of machine gun fire in Iraq, he had a choice: either assume the same victimhood narrative as everyone around him…

Or hold fast to what he calls the Overcome Mindset.

In today’s episode, Jason tells his incredible story of how he became a Navy SEAL against all odds, bounced back from failure as a leader, and not only recovered from a firefight that nearly killed him…

But rose to become a voice of courage and leadership in the wounded warrior community.

QUOTES:
“The greatest gift you have is you have a choice. You have a choice. Freewill is one of the greatest things we have as humans.” [05:31]

“A victim mentality limits your success in this life. You know, you will stay wherever you are, and you will achieve the limit of what you believe.” [12:38]

“Sitting there and focusing all your blame and time on the fact that your perfect plan, or something happened, or your world got thrown upside down, accomplishes nothing - nothing.” [17:32]

“We think that we need to be tough and do these things on our own. But sometimes, you know, it's okay to get help. It's okay to say I'm struggling, especially mentally.” [59:15]

“At the end of the day, leadership, teamwork, your ability to overcome adversity… all those things are within us.” [1:11:38]

Research in the fields of neuroscience and pharmacology over the past several decades have resulted in countless positive benefits for humanity.

But until very recently, certain classes of drugs had been rigorously excluded from clinical trials - namely, the class of drugs commonly known as psychedelics.

Fortunately, a handful of organizations around the world have been making breakthroughs in psychedelic drug research, working in cooperation with government regulators to answer this question: what are these drugs doing to our brains and bodies?

One such researcher is today’s guest - Dr. David Nutt. He and his team at Drug Science have brought together leading drug experts from many different clinical backgrounds, with the goal of providing clear, evidence-based information about how a wide range of drugs - from CBD to PCP - impact the human system.

In his latest book, Cannabis (seeing through the smoke): The New Science of Cannabis and Your Health, Dr. Nutt gives an in-depth look into one of the most commonly used recreational psychedelics on the planet: cannabis.

In today’s episode, we discuss David’s findings on how cannabis affects different systems in the brain, how it differs from other classes of drugs, what the future of drug research looks like, and much much more!

QUOTES:
“You've got to remember - cannabis can affect pretty much every other neurotransmitter system in the brain.” [09:13]

“Medical cannabis is going to be the big revolution over the next 20 years, if we use it properly.” [13:45]

“Normally, the visual system is just embedded in the visual system. But under psychedelics, because you break down the default mode network, the visual system can then connect everywhere in the brain.” [28:10]

“It needs to be tested. We need to be doing lots of studies, but we're not because it's a plant product and doesn't fit into the current model of pharmaceutical drug development.” [41:24]

"The best way to predict the future is to invent it." - Alan Kay

In today’s era of ever-accelerating change, it might seem impossible to predict the future with any degree of accuracy. Likewise, it might be easy to assume that the only way to do so is through sophisticated AI algorithms and data science.

Incredibly, Jane McGonigal and her colleagues at Institute for the Future have been able to predict several of today’s most disruptive trends as much as ten years in advance.

Through her innovative use of alternate reality games, hyper-specific journaling techniques, and something called “future backcasting”, Jane continues to not only lay out seemingly impossible future scenarios, but also help prepare people to be proactive in building the future they want to see.

If you like what you see in today’s episode, then I highly encourage you to check out Jane’s latest book, Imaginable: How to See the Future Coming and Feel Ready for Anything―Even Things That Seem Impossible Today

QUOTES:
“The brain normally assumes things will continue as they are. But what that means is it can be very hard to wake up and realize this thing that used to be true is no longer true, or this assumption I had is no longer helpful.” [09:54]

“We do try to have this balance of positive and shadow imagination, because really, any future is going to have complications, but also perhaps unexpected benefits where people use it as an opportunity to create positive change.” [15:31]

“To start your process of having to adapt or deal with a crisis or disruption from a state of confidence and clarity, rather than anxiety, confusion, feeling helpless - it really changes the way that you emotionally experience things that can create a lot of suffering.” [26:53]

“Try to backcast all the way to as far as what could you do in the next 24 hours to make this future more likely. Just force yourself to roll up your sleeves and do something to start trying to have an impact on this future.” [51:51]

Stop BEATING Yourself Up, Make BIG Changes, & Achieve Your Goals | Tom Bilyeu
1436
When you’re a high performer and someone on a mission to reach the highest levels of success, you have to set the bar ridiculously high and get after it. This becomes problematic for people when they’ve set unrealistic expectations and goals so high they start experiencing a sense of shame and failure. Can you set ridiculously high expectations and still be cool with imperfection? Tom reveals why it’s so important for you to do and believe that which moves you towards your goals. When aiming for perfection hinders your performance and ability to execute, it’s time to rethink your strategy. Being imperfect still allows you to achieve more than most ever will if you are willing to value the sincere pursuit of your goal over feeling good enough trying to avoid failure along the way.

QUOTES:

“Kicking yourself in the ass is super powerful, but my rule is, I never do anything that diminishes my sense of self.” [5:52]

“Reach for the farthest star in the world, but don't value yourself for whether or not you achieve it. Value yourself for the sincere pursuit…” [7:11]

“Success cannot be guaranteed, struggle can. You will struggle. I cannot guarantee that you will be successful, but the juice is never going to be the success. It's never going to be the accolades.” [8:16]

“You have a hole inside of you that can only be filled with progress, meaning, and purpose. It can't be filled with accomplishment” [9:23]

“The desire for perfectionism is really fear that you're not good enough in failure.” [11:12]

“If the job gets done at eight units of energy, you're better off applying the extra two units of energy to something else.” [15:31]

“Aim to have a perfect career, which is full of failure, embarrassment, and just rich with hard on skill. That's perfection we're chasing.” [18:22]

“We have to understand there's tremendous power in the dark side, but that it's a corrosive power, and that if you use it too much it will destroy the only thing in life that actually matters” [19:30]

"You can fail in life doing the things you hate, so you might as well take a chance doing what you love." - Jim Carrey

When it comes to pursuing your passion, people often think that you need to decide between making a living, and doing what you love.

The reality is that not only can you have both, but if you’re going to live a life of fulfillment, it’s actually necessary to do so.

However, that doesn’t mean that it will be easy - especially if you’re stuck in a dead-end job, or you aren’t even sure what else you’d like to do with your life.

In today’s episode of Impact Theory, you’ll get answers to some of the most common questions about transitioning from an unfulfilling career to one that excites you - without sacrificing financial stability in the process.

Whether you’re suited for entrepreneurship, or would do better as a linchpin in an organization you believe in, you’ll be surprised at just how universally applicable the tools and tactics are for getting unstuck and turning your passion into a full-time career.

QUOTES:
“There is no success big enough that you can stand in that success, and that it will last forever.” [00:52]

“The problem fundamentally is that life is an ever changing rollercoaster of emotion, and the name of the game is to manage those emotions well.” [03:34]

“Because I know that I can always slow down and take a step back, I never get overwhelmed. And because of that, I'm able to keep going and keep performing. But if I just tried to run in the red all the time, then I would stop having fun. I would not want to do it anymore, and I would give up.” [13:26]

“As you figure out what that business is going to be that you're growing, make sure that it's something that you would love doing every day, even if you were failing.” [17:01]

“Don't buy into a narrative that you need to run your own business or that you need to be an entrepreneur or anything like that. What you want to figure out is, where will you love existing? Where can you chase fulfillment the hardest? Where can you engage with your passions most deeply? That's the question.” [25:07]

“If you can't say in a single sentence what really fills your tank, what gives you that energy, what makes you feel alive… if you can't say that in a single sentence, you're in trouble.” [26:42]

“Awakening does not mean a change in difficulty, it means a change in how those difficulties are met.” - Dr. Mark Epstein

When we think of Buddhism, Taoism, and other Eastern philosophies, we often imagine achieving a state of permanent inner peace - being completely untroubled by the concerns of this world.

Unfortunately, we need to be able to deal effectively with the realities of everyday life, rather than shrink away from them.

According to Dr. Mark Epstein, most people have a fundamental misunderstanding about what Buddhism is trying to teach us.

It isn’t about dissolving the ego completely, or becoming totally detached from our past and future.

Rather, the point of the Buddha’s teachings is to use fundamental psychological truths to become more effective at actually engaging with the difficulties of everyday life.

So if you’re struggling with difficult relationships, have difficulties with past trauma, or simply have never been able to understand the point of meditation, then you’re sure to find something valuable in today’s episode.

And if you like what you see here, then you should definitely order Mark’s latest book: The Zen of Therapy: Uncovering a Hidden Kindness in Life: https://amzn.to/3NDZxk5

QUOTES:
“There's something beneficial in allowing ourselves, and in training ourselves, to be with that which is difficult in ourselves, in our partners, in life.” [13:34]

“It's not what you're experiencing, or what you've experienced, that matters. It's how you relate to it.” [23:42]

“The Buddhist teaching is such a help, because it's what it's saying is, this aspect of experience is unavoidable. And we can find our best selves by staying with it, rather than trying to get away from it.” [40:11]

“The ego doesn't need or doesn't actually want to be in control all the time. We just need it for certain things, and then we have to learn to let it go.” [55:23]

“Why don't you leave yourself alone? Why don't you just let yourself be? Why don't you see who you are that way? Why don't you discover who you are by relating naturally to the world, to other people, to yourself?” [1:03:08]

For most of us, when we think of melatonin, the first thing we think of is “a chemical to make you feel sleepy”.

And while it’s true that melatonin plays a critical role in governing our circadian rhythm, it turns out that melatonin is also one of the most powerful antioxidants produced in the body.

This is a huge deal when it comes to disease prevention, as oxidative stress and inflammation are primary causes of some of the deadliest and most common diseases known to man.

In today’s episode of Health Theory, Dr. Roger Seheult breaks down the science of melatonin, vitamin D, circadian rhythm, and much more.

So whether you’ve been having trouble sleeping, are worried about inflammation and disease prevention, or just want to brush up on your biochemistry, then I promise you’ll get something beneficial out of today’s episode.

QUOTES:
“One of the things that we've discovered as scientists is that the mind and the body are a lot more connected than we thought they were.” [09:30]

“I think it would be a mistake to say that while I'm taking my vitamin D supplementation, I don't need to go out into the sun.” [11:18]

“We see diabetes associated with obesity, obesity with inflammation, diabetes with oxidative stress. So we do see them correlate - it's hard to tease them out.” [15:45]

“I can't stress this enough: Alzheimer's disease, autism, diabetes - a lot of these diseases that we see in society have been tied to mitochondrial damage from reactive oxygen species. It's really important.” [20:50]

“We have technology today, that allows us to eat 24 hours a day. We have technology today that we can turn night into day if we want, we can work 24/7. There's gamers that do that, they go straight for 48 hours and they die. And so what we're finding out is that technology, even though it allows us to do certain things, they may not be optimal.” [37:43]

“Pursue what’s in your heart, and the universe will conspire to support you.” - Rich Roll

Are there times when we can get a better result by letting go? What role does pain tolerance play in addiction? Is a plant-based diet really that restrictive?

For endurance athlete, author, and podcaster Rich Roll, these kinds of questions are just the tip of the iceberg.

In today’s episode of Impact Theory, Rich and I explore the landscape of ideas ranging everywhere from spirituality and his experience with 12 Steps, all the way to plant-based protein, vegan bodybuilders, and everywhere in between.

So whether you or someone you love is struggling with addiction, you’re feeling out of touch with your purpose, or you simply want to know where to find the best vegan cheese on the planet, then this episode is for you.

1:17:52 | Plant-Based Dietary Choices and Longevity


QUOTES:
“The biggest leaps that I've made in terms of personal growth, and in terms of my career, the beautiful things that I've been able to accomplish, I think are part and parcel attributable to having an interior spiritual life.” [02:56]

“There were plenty of times when I wanted to jump ship and do the prudent, rational thing, because that's how I was raised. And that's what my education was all about. But having kind of come out the other side of it, I have a deeper appreciation for… the beauty in not always knowing.” [07:43]

“I think most people are walking around, totally unconnected from themselves. They don't understand why they do what they do. They continue to do the same things over and over and over again, they flog themselves, and yet decline the opportunity to really deconstruct that.” [34:28]

“If you have a very high pain tolerance, which a lot of addicts do, the fear or the pain associated with the change always exceeds the pain of their current situation. And it's not until or unless the pain of their current situation is so great, that overshadows the fear of doing something different.” [1:03:11]

“First of all, nobody should go on a diet, they should be trying to change their lifestyle habits in a manner that is sustainable.” [1:15:57]

“The work is the shortcut.” - Apolo Anton Ohno

What are the characteristics of an olympic mindset?

More importantly, how well does that mindset work, once the time for chasing medals is over?

These were the kinds of questions that Apolo Anton Ohno, the most decorated American winter olympian of all time, had to ask himself when he retired from short track speed skating at the age of 28.

How do you forge a brand new identity when your old one is no longer relevant? How do you define a life well lived? How do you find, and stay aligned with, your True North?

In today’s episode of Impact Theory, we dive deep into these questions and more, including Anton’s humble beginnings, his relationship with his father, and the 5 Golden Principles that will help you through even the most challenging times.

If you liked this episode, you should definitely check out Apolo’s new book, Hard Pivot: Embrace Change. Find Purpose. Show Up Fully.

“iI my dad had not placed me in these types of situations and environments, or if I had not operated from those psychological places of fear, or anger or rage, there is no way that I would have been able to… achieve that level of performance.” [16:55]

“People want to subscribe and be a part of something because maybe they don't have their own identity for themselves. And it's much easier to turn their face and look towards something else.” [20:26]

“You're going to fail and it's going to suck and it's going to hurt and there's going to be pain. And you can metabolize that pain, or that pain can blanket you and keep you submerged. That choice is yours.” [29:53]

“I realized, probably about two years into my retirement, that I could get off the treadmill. I was actually in control. I was the governor of my own speed limit.” [39:31]

It’s no secret, sugar has been labeled the bad guy in the standard American diet for years now. As new diet fads circulate around the internet and the latest trends and research seems to change every other day, finally some pieces of the “what’s making me fat” puzzle are starting to fit together. Even more so, with today’s health concerns, obesity is no longer the only indicator for poor health and metabolic disease. Dr. Richard Johnson is board certified in internal medicine, infectious diseases, and kidney disease and is known as the Fructose Expert. In this episode he’s breaking down the orchestrated events taking place in our bodies between sugar, salt, and how your foods are triggering you to gain weight.

51:36 | Avoid These Foods

QUOTES:

“There is a switch that animals use to go from being us normal weight to overweight, that switch, you can activate it by certain types of foods.” [1:53]

“The fat is like the firewood, and the sugar is like the fire. So if you take away the fire, and you go on a low carb diet, and you are in high fat now, well, there's no stimulus to gain weight because because you've taken away the fructose” [17:18]

“One of the classic means for stimulating fructose turns out to be from a high glucose level in the blood.” [23:02]

“When you eat, if your glucose goes up in your blood, it triggers the production of fructose.” [37:59]

“So it's either the fructose you eat, or the fructose you make if you eat a lot of fructose, you're going to activate the switch.” [38:58]

“We have a higher uric acid, and this makes us more sensitive to the effects of fructose because fructose is working through uric acid. [...] and when that happens, we become very sensitive to sugar” [40:14]

“In the potency sugars, number one, high glycemic carbs are probably number two. salty foods are distant three, and umami is maybe even a four.” [44:36]

“Exercise turns out to be a great way not to lose weight, cause it doesn't burn many calories, but it stimulates the mitochondria, you won't notice the benefit except the benefit’s going to be happening.” [55:46]

“Live as if you were living already for the second time and as if you had acted the first time as wrongly as you are about to act now!” - Victor Frankl

Often we think that living in the present moment means blocking out thoughts of the past and future.

But according to today’s guest, Dr. Benjamin Hardy, maintaining a clear vision of your future self is actually one of the most effective ways to live more fully in the present.

By defining yourself in terms of the person you want to be, rather than in terms of your past behavior, you can immediately create change in the attitudes and actions of your present self.

So whether you’re feeling stuck in your current situation, can’t let go of past mistakes, or have simply lost momentum toward your goals, this episode will give you plenty of practical tips to get back on track and become the best version of yourself.

QUOTES:
“The more connected you get to the future self, the more able you are to actually appreciate this moment, the more you're able to see that what you do here and now matters. ” [02:02]

“I think that often we miss this moment because we don't connect it to the future. And what a lot of the researchers on meaning say is that this moment only has meaning because of what it means in the future.” [04:58]

“You don't have to commit to something for the rest of your life. But like, what do you want to commit to for the next three to five years? Like, what are you going to start really investing in?” [17:55]

“Journaling is just a way for you to actually structurally reframe anything that happened and then turn negative events into positive growth.” [22:26]

“I think it's a big aspect of emotional freedom and emotional maturity, is just realizing you're the only person who's comprehending your own experience, and so you get to define it however you want.” [42:45]

The ketogenic diet is so popular that it was searched over 25 million times in one year. Some experts support its effectiveness to help people lose weight, while others claim that it’s the worst diet to try. Research and data have advanced and proven that everyone has it wrong. Dr. Steven Gundry is with Tom explaining why he and the rest of the medical community got ketosis all wrong. He shares why mitochondrial uncoupling is really the star and this is what you need to know to make your dieting experience easier and more effortless. No need to live completely devoid of carbohydrates on a keto diet any longer.

QUOTES:

“50 percent of normal weight individuals have no metabolic flexibility.” [13:03]

“At full ketosis, human beings can only meet 30% of their calorie needs by burning ketones. The rest have to come from free fatty acids and glucose.” [19:09]

“Ketones are not a super fuel, they are actually a signaling molecule that tells mitochondria to protect themselves at all cost from damage” [20:15]

“In a ketogenic diet, if you do it right and uncouple your mitochondria, you waste fuel. You feed six dogs instead of one, and that's where the benefit of ketosis comes from.” [30:21]

“You want to cycle in and out of ketosis on a 24 hour basis.” [49:37]

“It's the cycling in and out of getting the benefits of ketosis. Without full ketosis, that makes all the difference.” [56:29]

“I think, therefore I am.” - René Descartes

What is reality? What is the nature of consciousness? How do we know that what we are experiencing is base reality and not a simulation?

These may seem like the kind of questions that you’d associate with modern concepts like The Matrix and simulation theory, but the fact is that every ancient philosophical tradition has wrestled with these problems in some form or another.

And with the advent of rich, complex VR worlds and the nascent metaverse, even more philosophers are turning toward these deep questions of consciousness and the human experience.

One of the most interesting thinkers in this space is David Chalmers, Professor of Philosophy and Neural Science at New York University, and co-director of the Center for Mind, Brain, and Consciousness.

In his latest book, Reality+: virtual worlds and the problems of philosophy, David investigates not only the nature of reality, but how we should conceptualize virtual reality, the idea that we can actually live a meaningful life in VR, how we know there’s an external world, and much more.

We explore these topics and more in today’s wide-ranging conversation, covering everything from the hard problem of consciousness to the probability that we’re actually living in a computer simulation.

You don’t have to be a student of philosophy to enjoy today’s conversation - especially if you’re as excited as I am about the possibilities being unlocked by virtual reality and the metaverse.

And if you want to dive deeper into David’s work, you can order his new book, Reality+, by clicking here: https://amzn.to/3vMSS0v

1:19:08 | The Future of “Technophilosophy”


QUOTES:
“How does the water of neural firings in the brain turn into the wine of consciousness?” [05:45]

“My view is what we have to do for consciousness is something akin to what Maxwell did for charge - treat consciousness as a fundamental property in nature and search for the fundamental laws that govern it.” [09:09]

“One of the basic questions in philosophy: Why is there something rather than nothing? Why is there anything in the universe? And it just looks like some things you have to take as fundamental properties and fundamental laws. And that's not wholly satisfying, but it kind of looks like it's the best we can do.” [32:39]

“I think the more we understand the connection between the brain and consciousness, the more capacities we're going to find for both manipulation and transformation of consciousness.” [51:48]

“I do want to think you can have… a meaningful life in VR, because what happens in VR is real - it's not scripted. It's not pre programmed. You can actually build your own life in VR.” [1:08:23]

“I think at a certain point, the avatar can begin to play… many of the roles of the physical body. It's as if you have two bodies, a physical body in the physical world, and a digital body in the digital world.” [1:24:02]

You may be skeptical, you may be curious, or you may be excited for what this means to your future. Dr. Kara Fitzgerald is a functional medicine physician and clinical director that just published a new book for the non-medical people trying to improve their health and age more gracefully called Younger You. She’s joining Tom and revealing everything you don’t know about methylation and epigenetics, why it matters to you and the simple things you can do to gain back 3 years of your biological clock in roughly 8 weeks.

“Negotiation is not an act of battle; it’s a process of discovery. The goal is to uncover as much information as possible.” - Chris Voss

Whether we know it or not, much of our success in business and in life depends on our ability to negotiate effectively. From buying a house or car to negotiating your salary to coming to an agreement with your partner - negotiation is a game-changing skill that everyone should master.

In today’s episode of Impact Theory, master negotiator Chris Voss shares some of the most important takeaways he’s learned over the years, both as a 24-year veteran of the FBI, and as the founder and CEO of The Black Swan Group - a world-class negotiation consulting firm.

Chris has been on the front lines of some of the most high-stakes hostage negotiations of the last 20 years, and the depth of his knowledge of human psychology is apparent throughout the whole conversation.

To learn more about the art of effective negotiation, I highly encourage you to read Chris’ bestselling book, Never Split the Difference: Negotiating As If Your Life Depended On It. https://amzn.to/356ckub

QUOTES:
“When you're in the battle, you can't bail. People are looking at you to lead. There are people's lives that are still on the line.” [09:29]

“Negotiation is not what it is to you. It's what it is to the other side.” [25:13]

“Ultimately, people make up their mind principally on what they perceive the loss to be. And that's human nature - doesn't matter the scenario” [26:01]

“One of the crazy things that I learned a long time after the fact is, terrorists got moms. I mean, you'd be shocked at the emotional vulnerability across the board, to the power of a well crafted message from a mom.” [30:49]

“Loss is… the biggest impact on decision making of human beings across the board.” [38:05]

“You know, everybody's gonna do stuff where they failed themselves, where they were fragile, they made a bad decision. They were heartless, either intentionally or accidentally, like, how do you pick it up after that?” [58:59]

“How every negotiation should go: script out your first two or three lines, and then you're into an ad lib from that point on. You’ve got to prepare - it's a dance, let the other person lead. And they'll take you where you want to go.” [1:13:14]

“You cannot get to your peak performance in a negative state of mind. And anger is a negative state of mind.” [1:29:02]

“The more you encourage the other side to talk, the more likely it is that you're going to get to this moment of collaboration quicker. Never be so sure of what you want that you wouldn't take something better. How do you get something better? You get the other side to talk. You spend a lot less time talking, and appreciate that they're bringing something to the table that you could use.” [1:46:52]

Experiencing the world as it is, isn’t really possible when you consider that reality is actually created by your brain’s perception of what is. Don Hoffman is a cognitive psychologist that argues that organisms develop their perception of the world directed towards fitness payoffs and not reality. Everything from our perception of reality is taken in through what Don would relate to a spacetime simulator that we are experiencing through a virtual reality headset. Just as Oculus creates an experience that can make you feel as though you are actually skydiving or on a roller coaster, so is the life we believe to be reality.

“Our free choices are not part of our conscious experiences. You can't directly experience your own free choices. You can experience that you chose, but you can never actually experience yourself choosing.” [18:56]

“We're programmed by natural selection, to buy into the illusion that objects exist even when they're not perceived...” [23:31]

“Most of what I've believed very deeply, has been very deeply wrong. Most of what humanity has believed very deeply has been very deeply wrong.” [26:35]

It might be easy to think that charisma is something you’re born with - either you have it or you don’t.

But what makes someone charismatic? Why are some people able to capture our attention with apparent ease, while others have difficulty standing out from the crowd?

According to bestselling author Vanessa Van Edwards, the answer lies in the hidden language of cues - the tiny, nonverbal signals we send to others in every interaction.

In today’s episode of Impact Theory, Vanessa explores the powerful impact that even the most subtle cues can have on others.

Not only that, but she shares some powerful techniques for improving our awareness of cues, and how to use them to our advantage - proving once and for all that charisma isn’t something you’re born with, it’s something you can develop with practice.

If you want to dive even deeper into what’s discussed in todays episode, then be sure to check out Vanessa’s latest book, Cues: Master the Secret Language of Charismatic Communication by clicking here: https://amzn.to/3h2Eg4p

QUOTES:
“When we add the warmth, plus competence - so likable, friendly, compassionate, trustworthy, plus capable, powerful, impressive - that's the sweet spot.” [02:30]

“As humans, we first meet another human, the very first question we ask about them is, ‘Can I trust you?’ ...the next question we answer - and it is the next question is, ‘Can I rely on you?’” [04:09]

“I think Social Assertiveness is actually like a hidden trait that everyone should learn. Because to be socially assertive, it means you're putting your needs forward, but you're being polite about it.” [16:05]

“I would rather you be aware of the cues that are being sent to you to know, ‘I want this or I don't’ because they are that powerful, that if someone has bad intentions, they can still produce trust.” [41:01]

“I think that's something that is an underestimated cue that we don't talk about enough, but our voice gives away a lot of our personality and our mental state.” [43:10]

“I think that people who doubt their ideas, and they doubt themselves, that leaks in their cues.” [47:35]

“Our subconscious is this amazing cue reading machine. And so it is constantly trying to tell your gut, ‘Listen, that wasn't good. We should be nervous,’ or, ‘This person is great.’ It's constantly trying to speak to us, we just have to listen to it.” [51:37]

QUOTES:
“We have 40 trillion cells in our body - that's right, 40 trillion cells. And each of them is a living organism. And we don't think about the fact that we're this massive collection of cells collaborating to have this conversation” [14:33]

“The single most fundamental part of your diet is “sugar is poison.” Right? Sugar causes neuroinflammation - absolutely clear. It causes cardiac disease - absolutely clear, right? Sugar feeds cancers. And so getting rid of sugar is the most important move anybody can make.” [33:13]

“One of the things that people should know is we're always developing cancers, the body is always developing cancers, it's just that your immune system finds them and zaps them.” [1:03:37]

“Regenerative medicine is the notion that we can use stem cells and exosomes and growth factors to help regenerate our body - to help regenerate muscle, brain, all of the tissues of our body.” [H:MM:SS]

“I think the biggest business opportunities on the planet are going to be age reversal and health tech and biotech.” [1:14:46]

“Everyone knows about someone who went to the hospital and, “Oh my god, you've got stage three or stage four cancer.” It didn't happen that morning. If you detect cancer at stage three, or stage four, your chance of a cure is like 10%. If you detect it at stage zero, stage one, it's like 99%.” [1:30:06]

When people hear about uric acid, it’s almost always in the context of it being a causal factor for gout.

But if more people knew the full extent of how it affects our metabolism, cardiovascular health, and risk for Alzheimer’s and dementia, we might pay more attention to it.

In this episode of Health Theory, Dr. David Perlmutter returns with the latest research on how uric acid is about much more than just gout.

He explains the relationship between uric acid, insulin, and fructose, why it doesn’t mean that all fruits are bad for you, and how our modern problem with uric acid is actually the result of a disconnect between evolution and environment.

If you want to dive deeper into the latest knowledge bomb from Dr. Perlmutter, you’ll definitely want to check out his new book, Drop Acid: The Surprising New Science of Uric Acid - The Key to Losing Weight, Controlling Blood Sugar and Achieving Extraordinary Health

QUOTES:
“A lot of roads lead to the Rome of inflammation, and set the stage for things like Alzheimer's and coronary artery disease. And because of that, it's the reason that a monotherapy or a one drug approach to Alzheimer's, for example, is beyond myopic. It's never going to work.” [03:02]

“Our metabolic health globally is in a terrible place. I mean, a third of American adults have hypertension, and 10% of kids aged 12 to 18 have hypertension. That's crazy. 50% of adult Americans will be obese by the year 2030. Not just overweight, but obese.” [04:16]

“Elevation of uric acid is associated with an 80% increased risk of dementia, a 55% increase risk of Alzheimer's specifically, and a 165% increased risk of vascular dementia.” [13:53]

“What would be the upside of having uric acid create insulin resistance, and therefore cause blood sugar to go up? Why? Because when you're starving, it'll help power your brain.” [16:50]

“What we're seeing now are these metabolic derangements that underlie these diseases that represent a disconnect between evolution and environment.” [22:06]

“If it has a barcode, and it's in the grocery store, it has added sweetener - 70% do. And by and large that comes from high fructose, there's the villain corn syrup that we subsidize to the tune of $500 billion a year.” [25:01]

“Uric acid levels are climbing in lockstep with fructose consumption. In the 1920s, average uric acid level in Americans was about 3.5 - it's now six.” [46:50]

NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) have exploded in popularity over the past several months.

With major brands getting involved - from Nike and the NBA to Taco Bell and Coca-Cola - many people are placing big bets that NFTs aren’t just another flash in the pan.

And even though the first wave of NFTs have primarily revolved around ownership of digital art, the possibilities for future use cases of NFTs go far beyond mere jpeg ownership.

In this episode, you’ll get a high-level view of the relationship between NFTs and the underlying blockchain technology, what makes an NFT project truly valuable, and some tips for getting involved in the space.

QUOTES:
“We are truly at the tip of a very large iceberg that is only going to get more phenomenal from here.” [09:06]

“The reason that I think NF T's are so powerful is that it gives people the ability to create something where the community gets to capture the long tail value of that item.” [14:49]

“Without that kind of community interaction, that kind of community support, that kind of community fervor, if you're wearing a Gucci sweater, you're counting on Gucci to build the brand recognition, and then the occasional Instagram post when you post it, versus when there's a huge community of people that get around something and begin to buoy it up.” [18:50]

“It's… looking at this as a long term play, being in this for decades, and really understanding what you're building, how you're doing this with the community, and having the execution track record of being able to sustain things and grow things over long periods of time.” [30:43]

“If you think about it from a community first perspective of wanting to do something cool to reward the people that buy into you and your new product and what you're doing, and you're making sure that the bulk of the value ends up going to them, then they're more likely to support you, support the brand, buy the next thing that you do.” [35:17]

QUOTES:
“You want your emotions - you need them, you're not trying to repress them - repressing emotions will lead to other problems. What you want is just that tiny little bit of distance, that ability when you're feeling it, to go back and go, ‘Hmm, why am I really feeling this? What are the roots of it?’” [04:14]

“I could give you the best techniques in the world, but it won't matter at all if you don't feel that need for it, that hunger for the ability to have a slight degree of control of your own actions.” [05:40]

“If you're so attuned to what other people are saying and doing and telling you and thinking, that voice gets drowned out by a million other voices, and you're not able to hear yourself anymore.” [12:48]

“The ability to accept death and look it square in the eye, and accept this as your reality, that you're not going to live forever, is very liberating.” [22:48]

“The time you're wasting getting enraged, and being manipulated, and feeling all these things and getting into that lizard part of you is time you're wasting, and your life is a lot shorter than you think it is.” [27:49]

If you’re listening to this, you’ve probably noticed that the buzz around crypto, NFT’s, and Web3 has been steadily building.

But despite its growing popularity, the fact is that most applications of web3 are still in their early stages.

And with so many different potential applications for blockchain technology, it can be a bit overwhelming just trying to figure out where to start.

That’s why I’ve put together this episode of Impact Theory to answer some of the most common questions I get about the future of web3, how to get involved, where to find good sources of information, and much much more!

00:00 | Introduction
00:30 | How Do You Define Web3?
05:14 | Why is Interest in Web3 Spiking?
09:48 | What are 5 Essential Sources of Info about Web3?
14:12 | Will Web3 Contribute To a More Balanced Society?
26:26 | What First Steps Should I Take to Get Involved?


QUOTES:
“The thing that they don't understand is hiding within that JPEG, or the real one is matrix code. And so based on that matrix code, I can actually read whether that's the real one or not…and based on whether you have the real one or not, I can give you advantages.” [02:39]

“When I look at some of the infrastructure stuff that's being put in place now, and I project out where we're going to be in three years, it is going to be absolutely incredible, a deep integration with so many different aspects of your life.” [07:27]

“Not only is it boring to be around people that are negative, but it really I think is a bad look for the space. So find people that are wonderful, joyful, that are uplifting, that are trying to make this a better place to be, that want to see you succeed and do well.” [10:19]

“My hope is that the blockchain is really ushering in a whole new way for the fast movers, the builders, the creatives to come in and build a whole new way of doing things that is sidestepping the traditional systems and some of the brokenness of the traditional system, and hopefully making things such that we all have an equal playing field that we all have the same starting line.” [16:10]

“It's really pretty extraordinary the number of different opportunities that web3 is creating. And this is why I'm so bullish on this long term. I really think that this creates a foundational shift. We are so early in this space and the amount of creativity, the amount of mind blowing things that are happening is extraordinary.” [29:08]

“Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm” - Winston Churchill

No matter what your goals are, if you’re going to make progress you have to accurately assess where you are, and what stands in the way of your success.

That includes being able to understand not only the obstacles put in your way by the outside world, but your own inadequacies that are holding you back.

In this episode, I answer some common questions around goal-setting, self-reflection, what to do about overthinking, and the importance of learning from suffering.


SHOW NOTES:
00:00 | Introduction
00:48 | How to Effectively Self-Reflect
06:16 | How Can I Recognize When I’m Overthinking?
08:37 | Why Bother to Learn From Suffering?
13:09 | Necessary vs. Unnecessary Struggle
19:00 | Taking Back Control of Your Own Path


QUOTES:
“Happiness, which is incredibly transitory, is probably not the right thing to focus on. The right thing to focus on, in my humble opinion, is fulfillment.” [01:07]

“I think honestly, most people live their entire lives overthinking things, but the easy way to know is whether or not you're taking action. If you're taking action, as a way of experimenting with the thoughts, you're probably just fine. If you're just trying to think your way to a solution, you're almost certainly overthinking it.” [08:19]

“Even when you truly have been victimized, you do not have to play the victim.” [10:47]

“I cannot guarantee that you will be successful in life, but I can guarantee that you're going to struggle.” [13:20]

“Steering yourself towards your goals is really about wanting something so badly that you're willing to try over and over and over again in order to make progress.” [19:42]

Are we closer to becoming biologically immortal? What would you strive to do or dream of if you could extend your life to even 150 years? Until recently the idea of longevity felt more like reaching your 90s and possibly 100 at best, and if you manage to accomplish that goal, a high quality of life would be best and expected. But what if you could extend your lifespan by even 10 years? Making sure that those years are exciting and meaningful would be a priority. Dr.David Sinclair, world renowned geneticist, is joining Tom in this episode to break down exactly why it is that we age on a cellular level, and what is now becoming possible in terms of slowing down our biological clock and even possibly reversing our biological age. If you want to know what you can do to start improving the quality of your aging life and stay younger longer this episode is for you, and you’ll want to check out Dr. David Sinclair’s newest podcast, Lifespan (link below).

55:02 | Lifestyle for Longevity

“We could have reversed aging just by making all cells a stem cell, we have the technology to do that.” [23:43]

“So we're reversing the aging of the eye, that's not hard at all, but we can reverse the age of the liver, the skin, other labs are doing the spleen, thymus, through this method.” [31:13]

“Humanity lucked out that we can actually do this and that there's a backup copy of youth in each of our cells that can be tapped into.” [32:03]

“We don't think about what it's like at the end, it is not fun. It's not typically like, Oh, you just go to sleep. Those are the lucky ones.” [36:39]

“The main concept that I think we all need to remember is that our bodies respond well to perceived adversity.” [38:55]

“Be proud of your scars. Be proud of the stuff that has knocked you down. Be proud of the crap, the adversity that you've gone through and it didn't break you. You came through the other side of the tunnel.” - Jay Glazer

They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover.

This is especially true for Jay Glazer - and for his latest book: Unbreakable: How I Turned My Depression and Anxiety into Motivation and You Can Too

If you’ve been watching Jay on camera over the years, you might find it hard to believe that, under the surface, he lives with an almost daily struggle with anxiety and depression.

But he doesn’t let it keep him down or stop him dead in his tracks - instead he uses it as fuel for his relentless drive and motivation.

In today’s interview, we go deep on the importance of loyalty, being of service, and the importance of learning to build yourself up from the inside out, rather than looking for validation only from the outside.

If you’ve ever struggled with anxiety and depression and felt like you had to “fake it” to get through the day, this one’s for you.

Likewise, I especially recommend that you check out Jay’s new book, Unbreakable: How I Turned My Depression and Anxiety into Motivation and You Can Too: https://amzn.to/33CWuXf

34:04 | The Origins of Jay’s New Book
39:39 | Helping Others Not Feel Alone in Their Struggle
43:40 | The Balance Between Toughness and Caring


QUOTES:
“As a result of me not knowing how to build myself from the inside out, I had to go do everything that I could to try to get some love from the outside in.” [02:28]

“Whoever says quitting is not an option is the biggest moron in the world, because it's an option every day, right? It just sits on your shoulder every day.” [04:55]

“I think if all of us do that a lot more for each other, where we're not just thinking about, “Hey, how can I get by, how can I move myself?” the world would be a much better place. And we'd all be able to stress a little less, but I think too many people just take care of themselves.” [09:03]

“The universe is not against me, and the sky is not falling - hasn't fallen all this time yet. I wake up every day feeling like it's going to - a lot of people, successful or not, have that same fear. But no one talks about it. I’m like fuck it, I'm going to talk about it. I’m gonna put it all out there for us.” [24:22]

“I tell them all, ‘That game starts, that cage door locks, you gotta make that guy across from you beg to get out of that cage with you. That's your job.’” [41:48]

QUOTES:

“Sprinting is probably the single best exercise for youth [...], more than I would believe squats” [5:46]

“The amount of weight you lift is not nearly as important as a host of other factors we call volume load: sets times reps times weights and then the range of motion is also a critical component.” [21:59]

“If you go to failure, you're going to have more fatigue. You might have a little more stimulus, but you'll have more fatigue, which might delay recovery, and that's going to affect total volume and volume is a superior driver than fatigue” [26:01]

“The vertical diet was intended to be more inclusive of what historically I had seen as over restrictive” [33:02]

“The muscle is the most important organ in the body [...] it's a sink for glucose. That's what the muscle is so effective at particularly when you're moving it and working it.” [47:34]

“Taking a 10 minute walk after each meal is twice as effective as Metformin for reversing or preventing type two diabetes, just from moving the muscles and getting your your body to do what it's supposed to do” [48:18]

“I think anybody that gets wired to grow and give is gonna have a really fulfilling life. It doesn't matter what you choose to do, you're going to be alive, because you're going to make progress.” - Tony Robbins

To say that Anthony Robbins is a legend is to say nothing at all.

Beyond being a #1 New York Times bestselling author, Tony is also a founder, partner, or early investor in 100+ privately held businesses with combined sales exceeding $7 billion annually.

He’s been honored by Accenture as one of the top fifty business intellectuals in the world, having consulted and coached some of the world’s greatest athletes, entertainers, Fortune 500 CEOs, and four US presidents.

Finally, through his philanthropy and partnership with Feeding America, he has provided more than 800 million meals and is on track to provide 1 billion meals by 2025.

And it isn’t only his impressive list of credentials that made me so excited to have him as a guest on Impact Theory. Tony’s books, talks, and live events have also had a profound impact on me, both personally and professionally.

Our conversation ranged far and wide, covering everything from the secrets to true fulfillment in life to his deep research into the cutting edge of regenerative medicine.

If you (like me) feel excited after what Tony shared in this episode, I encourage you to check out Tony’s new book, Life Force: How New Breakthroughs in Precision Medicine Can Transform the Quality of Your Life & Those You Love: https://amzn.to/3qrXhDa

“People need a new perspective. And you can't do it by just sitting and thinking - you’ve got to move your body, you’ve got to change your energy and your focus, because [with a] low level of energy, I don't give a damn how smart you are - you're not going to use all of your ability.” [34:57]

“The one common denominator [of] people that are successful over a lifetime is the sustained hunger. Hunger is the number one factor.” [46:04]

“I think anybody that gets wired to grow and give is gonna have a really fulfilling life. It doesn't matter what you choose to do, you're going to be alive, because you're going to make progress.” [47:24]

“You’ve got to understand, anyone can learn anything if you can just break it down to its simple core.” [56:21]

What does living a longer, healthier, and more fulfilling life mean to you? How can you achieve that goal and does achieving that goal start the same for everyone? Per usual there is an abundance of information out that can be highly contradictory to each other and there is also a lot of narrative and research even showing results that are based on ulterior motives. Is it better to follow the research that says go vegetarian because animal proteins are not good for humans? Could it be better to stick with data that supports high quality proteins from an animal based diet? Dr. Gabrielle Lyon is joining Tom for another informative conversation about how transparent conversations, research and data need to be shared to better inform people about the best ways to protect muscle and thus achieve longer, healthier, more fulfilling high-quality lives. Being focused on strength and the functionality of muscles and what is required to maintain and build healthy muscle is a must for anyone thinking about longevity.

“You're existing in this incredibly delicate balance between what you eat, your insulin response to what you eat, and the muscle that you carry, and how much you use it.” Tom Bilyeu [2:44]

“The body thrives under activity, and whether you take a human, whether you take an animal, if you essentially domesticate them, and they are not training, they will lose muscle.” [6:50]

“You have to be very careful about how you want to age and this concept of longevity.” [23:16]

“Muscle is necessary, but not sufficient. You have to both have muscle and a diet that isn't overwhelming your system.” Tom Bilyeu [27:29]

“Our expectation is now to lower the quality of evidence to be able to say, well, no plant and animal protein are the same. No, they're not!” [31:01]

“Skeletal muscle is an organ system, just like the thyroid. It should be tested and treated as such.” [40:50]

If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you’ve probably heard about the years I spent chasing money - and how it left me emotionally bankrupt.

Don’t get me wrong - money is a powerful force. It gives you the ability to close your eyes, imagine something that you want to create, and then open your eyes and actually be able to go out there and do it.

However, I’ve also found that people have wildly different opinions on money, how we should relate to it, and how it affects our levels of happiness and fulfillment.

But what do people who have really mastered the game of money have to say about it?

What constitutes a wealthy life? How should we define success? How do we create and monetize long-term value for those we serve?

Todays’ episode of Impact Theory answers those questions, and many more. I’ve assembled some of my favorite moments from past guest interviews, all revolving around our relationships with money and financial success.

What was your #1 takeaway from the episode? Let me know in the comments below! 👇

SHOW NOTES:
00:00 | Ken Honda on shifting your focus around wealth
09:01 | David Rubenstein on children of wealthy families
17:54 | Ramit Sethi on rewriting your invisible scripts around money
28:10 | Tilman Fertitta on forging your own path in business
37:05 | Yancey Strickler on new ways of measuring value


QUOTES:
“I think wealth is an attitude. If you feel like you're so happy, and so content with what you have, you are already wealthy. But if you have to struggle every day, and you cannot find happiness, either in your business or in your personal life, I think you're not wealthy, even if you have billions in your bank account.” - Ken Honda [05:38]

“Raising children is a complicated thing. If you mess up raising your children, nothing else in life really matters. Your ultimate legacy is not a building named after you, or a scholarship named after you - it's your children” - David Rubenstein [13:50]

“It's not impossible to make money - there's actually a lot of people making money. It's not impossible to get ahead, pay off debt, even invest and grow - there's a lot of people doing it. But if you're surrounded by people who constantly complain about how difficult it is, and it's impossible, guess what? You're going to absorb those invisible scripts.” - Ramit Sethi [19:43]

“You've got to know your God given gifts, and everybody has it. Everybody in this room has it right here. So do what you know was your God given gift and find a way to use that as your path.” - Tilman Fertitta [33:18]

“My assumption was always that financial value is simply the first value we've learned to rationally express - that financial value is a proxy for goodness that is mathematical and that is tradable and that is universal - and that that process can be repeated for other values” - Yancey Strickler [44:48]

We are living through interesting times where gender roles are an ongoing heated discussion. Tempers and passion flare from all sides, but what we cannot ignore is the damage being done to both boys and girls. There have been intense movements that even though they are noble they have caused damage along the way socially in the psyche of young boys and girls. If you follow Tom you’ve heard him say time and time again, we are all having a biological experience. What does this biological experience become when society and doctrine contradict and suppress the nature of our biological experiences? Dr. Warren Farrell joins Tom to discuss his latest book, The Boy Crisis, Why Our Boys Are Struggling and What We Can Do About It. The resolution as Dr. Warren states begins with understanding different sides of the argument. Learning how to steel man the opposing sides' argument will help create a foundation where the real problem, lack of father involvement and fatherless homes, can be addressed for the sake of our boys (and girls).

“The boy crisis resides where dads do not reside.” -Dr. Warren Farrell

Whether you are a father, mother, teacher, leader or fatherless child yourself, this conversation is not to be ignored and forgotten.

QUOTES:

“Knowing how to listen to different perspectives is more important than the rightness or the wrongness of your perspective.” [2:30]

“Whenever someone is angry, that angry anger is almost always vulnerability’s mask…” [3:37]

“The boy crisis resides where dads do not reside.” [29:05]

“The children that do the best are the ones that have an involved biological mom and dad.” [32:32]

“One of the biggest mistakes that CEO types make is using their skill sets as a CEO to solve their wife's problem…” [48:21]

“The way to protect her is by hearing her through and hearing her out. That is the solution. So you have to reformulate the method you use to protect.” [51:20]

“I become her hero by helping her become her own hero.” [53:43]

“The second they start realizing that you will provide complete safety for their perspective, there's no reason to shout, there's no reason to exaggerate. There's no reason to lie.” [58:24]

“We have this natural instinct to protect women and therefore create freedoms for them, and to not want men to complain, without looking at them with disgust, or with at least pity.” [1:06:51]

“The new future man is one who can respect himself if he's a natural warrier on the battlefield, [...], but also can respect yourself and know that you're needed by your family, to be more involved with your family on an everyday level.” [1:29:14]

It’s a new year, and people everywhere are looking for ways to improve their productivity so that they can crush their goals.

But no matter what productivity system you use, you’ll still have trouble reaching your goals if counterproductive habits are holding you back.

Maybe you have trouble focusing on one thing at a time, or aren’t sure which project to tackle first.

Or perhaps you’re constantly plagued by procrastination, always having a hard time getting past the starting block.

Whatever issues around productivity and self-management you may have, this episode of Impact Theory has you covered.

In it, I answer some of the most common questions I get around productivity, procrastination, time management, and goal-setting.

QUOTES:
“I know if I'm chilling on a Monday at 1pm, I know I have a problem. I'm outside of the bright lines that I have drawn for myself, which is Monday through Friday, if I'm awake, I'm either working or working out. ” [03:32]

“We don't want to work until we crash - that doesn't make sense. So we're going to take that off the table, because that's like running a marathon and saying, ‘I'm going to run the first mile at a four minute mile pace, and then, whatever - the rest will take care of itself.’” [08:33]

“Remember, doing less is always an option. Now I'm the go hardcore, the push, push, push guy, I love hustle, porn, all of that. But I'm telling you, nothing matters more than fulfillment and joy. And if you're burning yourself out, and you're stressed, and you're crashing, that's not joyful.” [10:59]

“We're not doing discipline because our parents tell us to - we're doing discipline as a test to see if it works to get us towards our goal.” [14:44]

“You want to make it such that you want it badly enough that the discipline becomes easy to stick to, because it's going to move you towards that thing that you really want. But you've got to learn - you've got to learn to want that thing.” [17:46]

“You must establish a value system. There's no right or wrong answer to your values, there's only things that either move you towards your goal, or move you away from your goal.” [20:31]

In a perfect world, we can all eat exactly the same and everyone gains and loses weight the exact same way. Unfortunately, in reality you may have a friend that can kill a whole pizza, have dessert and eat extra fries without gaining an ounce of weight. Others seem to put on weight even looking at a plate of food. What’s the deal? Why is it so easy for some people to gain weight and so hard for others. Why are so many people still sold on the calories in and calories out solution to obesity and weight control? Gary Taubes is an investigative science and health journalist and bestselling author. His latest book, The Case for Keto, tackles a lot of the misinformation around calories and why some people struggle with losing weight even when calories are restricted to the point of a starvation diet. We are led to believe that overeating is the problem, but what if eating too much isn’t what’s making you fat? What if your partner's problem is really how sensitive their body is to storing fat? This interview may be the missing piece of the puzzle that will help you and the people you love make the right diet changes, today.

“As long as insulin is elevated, your body's being told not to burn the fat, but the burn the carbs. So if insulin is elevated, carbohydrates are your fuel.” [35:28]

“Carbohydrates are fattening to those of us who fatten easily, not all of us are susceptible [...] if we want to get significant fat out of our fat cells and keep it out, then we have to minimize insulin” [39:30]

“If you're overweight, you have to carb restrict. It's not about eating less, it's about lowering insulin levels.” [58:15]

“If you don't have time to meditate for an hour everyday, you should meditate for two hours.” - Zen Proverb

Think you don’t have time for self-care in stressful times? What if you’re not sure whether you should take a break or continue to grind it out?

When it comes to the subject of self-care, people often have a lot of opinions - some of them make sense, while some of them don’t.

In today’s episode of Impact Theory, I’ll be answering these questions (and more) around how to effectively implement self-care in your life.

I’ll not only share what I believe to be the ultimate foundational self-care routine, I’ll also go into the reasons why you should be taking care of yourself in the first place, what to do if you have low self-esteem, and more.

So whether you’re currently living an easy life or you’re in the middle of the most stressful week of your life, I hope you get value out of this episode and most importantly, I hope you use what you’ve learned to improve your own self-care routine.


SHOW NOTES:
00:00 | Introduction
00:38 | How To View Self-Care As Essential To Success
04:40 | When To Refuel vs. Continue To Grind
08:48 | Lack of Self Love? Or Just Bad Prioritizing?
15:36 | Where To Start If You Have Low Self-Esteem
19:06 | Keeping Up With Self-Care During Stressful Times


QUOTES:
“The reason that I work out, the reason that I prioritize sleep, the reason that I meditate - all of those things are because I know that that's what you need to do in order to cognitively optimize.” [01:55]

“You can't, unfortunately, just tell yourself to love yourself. While it helps a little bit, it's maybe 5%. The other 95% is actually doing something that you think is worthy of respect, actually doing something that makes you feel that you have worth.” [10:19]

“The whole point of life is to optimize for fulfillment and joy. And beating ourselves up, thinking ourselves worthless, do not move us towards that goal.” [11:40]

“If you're doing that - working really hard to get exceptional at something that matters, that the world cares about and that you love, and then you contribute in a way that elevates you and other people - that's the game of fulfillment.” [18:26]

“If you're doing that - working really hard to get exceptional at something that matters, that the world cares about and that you love, and then you contribute in a way that elevates you and other people - that's the game of fulfillment.” [18:26]

“The whole idea is as you lower that stress and anxiety, you get into a calm and creative space where you can problem solve. And so that's the goal - we want to get into a place where we can begin problem solving.” [20:09]

What does it mean to go “into the impossible”?

For Professor of Cosmology Dr. Brian Keating, it’s all about shattering the limiting beliefs around what a human being is capable of.

In his latest book, Into the Impossible: Think Like a Nobel Prize Winner, Dr. Keating explores this question through the lens of the pursuit of one of humanity’s highest achievements: The Nobel Prize.

Today’s episode is a wide-ranging conversation that touches on everything from the scientific method and first principles thinking, to the motivations that drive people to pursue the highest level of achievement.

QUOTES:
“Oftentimes, scientists are like kids. Kids are curious, they're inquisitive, they can be charming, they can be mischievous. They can also be jealous, they can be petty, they can not want to play.” [05:26]

“Truth is what anchors us to reality. If you and I have different versions of reality - of relative truth - I think chaos ensues from that.” [05:43]

“What the scientific method does, is it doesn't say ‘That's right.’ It says, ‘That's not wrong.’” [08:47]

“Energy by itself is meaningless. It's almost nothing. But organized energy can do anything. And that's the core principle - that you need organization. Organization implies order.” [14:16]

“Passion is like a spark that can ignite the afterburner, but you need the fuel to keep the afterburner going. And curiosity is that fuel.” [38:22]

“In science, using the scientific method, there should be a little bit of add on, where you check to see, ‘Am I fooling myself?’” [1:06:32]

“Oftentimes people short the human intellect and what we're capable of doing.” [1:12:05]

“I don't like this saying, ‘Follow the science.’ Science is supposed to be about questioning authority. And now we're in this land where you have to follow authority. I think almost nothing could be less scientific than saying ‘Oh, because this particular person like Feynman would say something, that I'm not going to question it.’ He has to be wrong, just as Newton was wrong, just as Galileo was wrong.” [1:15:50]

“Albert Einstein had imposter syndrome. He said that Isaac Newton did more, not only for physics, but for Western civilization, than any person before or since, even including Einstein himself.” [1:19:45]

“This is my meaning of life. I'm gonna do those things that which, if taken away from you, would devastate you.” [1:43:55]

“The great thing about science is you never ‘win’ science. There's no such thing as winning science. You might win a Nobel Prize or win tenure, or get into a good school. But you're not winning science, because it's an infinite game, it cannot be won. That's what's so magical about it.” [1:55:19]

The only question that matters is what are you ready and willing to do right now where you are.

The meteoric rise of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies over the past years just goes to show that even something as ubiquitous as money is ripe for disruption.

And even though crypto is a space that many of us are just beginning to understand, its principles call into question the validity of the existing fiat monetary system.

In his latest book, The Fiat Standard: The Debt Slavery Alternative to Human Civilization, Dr. Saifedean Ammous sets out to do just that.

Using the first principles thinking that he used to write his bestselling book, The Bitcoin Standard, Dr. Ammous analyzes the history of fiat currency, the shift away from the gold standard, and the economic, social and political fallout that came as a result.

QUOTES:
“As we develop the ability to have stronger, harder money, we’re able to provide for our future more... The more we save, the more capital we have available for investment. The more we invest, the more the productivity goes up, the more our standard of living increases. That's really the process of civilization.” [22:13]

“If you're trying to collect zeros next to your house valuation, move to Zimbabwe, Lebanon, Venezuela - go where the hyperinflation is, and you'll have the most valuable house. Obviously, people don't care about how many zeros you attach to their prices of goods. People care about the purchasing power of money.” [36:27]

“A lot of parents teach their kids to save, but it's pretty bad advice if you save in the Fiat standard. If you hold on to money you're witnessing it basically lose its value by 5, 10, 15% per year.” [39:22]

“Why did Soviet cars suck? Because they were producing the same way that modern research in modern American universities is produced - it's from the top down.” [59:15]

“The only reason that [the U.S. government] can get into bonds is because everybody's counting on their ability to inflate their money supply and devalue their people. So the bond market is just… it's evil through and through.” [1:25:58]

Too often people have experienced life in a way that shapes their nature, their responses, and how to perceive life as it comes. Having your mind stretched and bent beyond its normal world view is scary but a treat worth exploring with guest Chuck Palahniuk. Last time he joined Tom to discuss life, death and finding meaning in your life. In this episode, we’re deep diving into how Chuck pursues new ideas, stretches himself beyond the outcomes, and allows the magic of connection to take place through the process of creating stories. Chuck discusses his new essay, People, Places, and Things, and shares the juice of how he’s able to compel such strong reactions from stories that make most people uncomfortable.

QUOTES:

“We're drawn to these things that resonate with us, but I would bet that's because of something that's innate within us” [4:15]

“You have this idea of what it's going to be to attain this thing, but when you actually attain the thing it's never what you anticipated, which is the glorious part. Because why strive for something, if you kind of already know what that thing is, but when you strive for it, and it surprises you, that's the glorious part.” [26:41]

“It's not about my joy. It's about providing that moment for somebody else.” [29:51]

“I like the idea of taking things that we have a negative connotation [about], like shame, and if there's some way to harness shame, and spin shame, so that shame becomes productive.” [36:35]

“There's such freedom in that zero place where you're not trying to look good and you're not trying to dominate [...] it's like a fresh wake up.” [38:19]

“Fear is the thing that validates that you're doing the thing that means something to you. Because if it didn't mean anything to you, you wouldn't feel the fear.” [42:26]

“People who are in love with that constant exploration process, are the people who are creative throughout their entire lives well into their 60s 70s 80s, because they're in love with the process, rather than just this single outcome.” [46:25]

“That's kind of the blessing of pain is that pain can only go on for so long before it shifts to something else. And all that tension comes out.” [1:13:28]

“A lot of times people are offended, not because you've somehow hurt their feelings, but because you've said a truth that they don't want to hear.” [1:24:30]

Most of us believe that a good way to arrange our lives is by minimizing suffering for ourselves and for those around us.

In his latest book, Paul Bloom lays out an argument that human beings aren’t exactly wired that way - and that this may actually be a good thing.

Human beings will often choose their own suffering (even extreme forms of it) in order to gain everything from control over our environment to visceral pleasure.

In today’s conversation, Paul and Tom dive deep into the evolutionary underpinnings of chosen suffering, the biological roots of human morality, the relationship between sex and religion, how to live a meaningful life, and much more!

You can learn more about many of the topics covered in today’s conversation in Paul’s new book, The Sweet Spot: The Pleasures of Suffering and the Search for Meaning.

00:00 | Introduction - Paul Bloom
06:54 | Darwinism and Control Over Pain & Pleasure
13:24 | Meditation & Getting Outside of Yourself
24:30 | Mastery and Self-Control
28:38 | Against Empathy

58:19 | Emotions, Depression, and Neurochemistry
1:09:58 | Nature, Nurture, and Morality
1:18:59 | Morality and Sexual Behavior


QUOTES:
“I think we have a family of motivations. It includes happiness, which as you point out, can mean different things. It includes pleasure, it includes meaning (whatever that is), it includes morality, maybe it includes beauty, it includes truth. …and a good life is sort of trying to maximize and balance them as best as possible.” [03:50]

“What it is to be a good person, for you and me, differs from what it would have been to be a good person 500 years ago, because we know more stuff now.” [08:17]

“We're often in our heads, and it's uncomfortable. We're thinking about the future, we're mulling over the past, we're very conscious of our bodies, we're conscious of how we look, we're conscious of this voice in our heads, and sometimes sharp and sudden pain can bring us out of it.” [11:35]

“Natural selection did not evolve us to have a good time. It evolved us to survive and reproduce… some degree of buzzing in your head is actually important. Not fun, but important.” [15:35]

“Life isn't the kind of thing that has an intrinsic meaning. People can choose activities that are meaningful, because they meet certain criteria - some objective criteria - but [it’s] also subjective. What might be meaningful for you might not be for me, and vice versa.” [37:36]

“An old-time shrink would say, “Oh, my God, you got to learn to love yourself.” But maybe the advice is, you got to learn to do something that would make your self-esteem more deserved.” [51:56]

“Even six month old babies make moral judgments. You show them one-act plays where one person is helping another one and other ones are hindering another one… and they prefer the good guy.” [1:10:22]

QUOTES:

“We evolved to stay healthy and alive and fit to wear 40. And then the forces of natural selection decline after that” David Sinclair [2:04]

“We need to realize that certainly our body can have perturbations, but it doesn't mean you're always going to manifest symptoms of that [...] the body and the mind and the diet and lifestyle are so powerful.” Mike Mutzel [12:35]

“Food affects mind, food affects brain with that premise, we can talk about, okay, mine diet will hold off dementia, and intermittent fasting might make you feel like you've had a cup of coffee” Rahul Jundial [15:59]

“Aging, to me, is either the quick or slow breakdown of the gut wall.” Steven Gundry [30:31]

“When you think about the five pounds of bacteria that live in your gut, it may not be too good an idea to put too much of a preservative into that gut because it will alter the microflora” Alan Goldhamer [40:56]

“Our sleep quality is more important than our diet and exercise combined. What it does for our health and also literally our physical appearance. Fascinating stuff how much more fat you lose when you get optimal sleep.” Shawn Stevenson [44:45]
