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.

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.

QUOTES:

“The average person has been told to value exercise, mainly by its calorie burn, and that's so wrong because the amount of calories you burn while you exercise is actually the least important thing.” [3:54]

“Strength training is the most consistent way to raise testosterone, [...] in men” [14:30]

“Strength training has been shown to be one of the most effective ways to stop or halt the progression of the beta amyloid plaques that are so associated with Alzheimer's” [15:31]

“Because we can't just pop the exercise pill, people leave the most obvious solution on the table.” [17:09]

“When it comes to improving all health metrics, mental, psychological, and physical, as you follow along, as you continue the process, it gets better and better. There's no medication that does that at all.” [18:46]

“Don't go to the gym and workout, go to the gym and practice these exercises and try to get good at these exercises.” [24:33]

“If we judge exercise by the people that perform it at the highest level, we're also looking at people who genetically were born to also perform at very high levels.” [25:52]

“The extreme bodies are not healthy. Those are extreme performers, like a top NBA player or football player or athlete is not optimally healthy. They're just incredible at performance.” [29:00]

“Good, full range of motion, appropriate and balanced strength is what prevents pain. It's what makes your joints move optimally…” [32:26]

“Properly, applying strength training, and appropriate strength training, makes you bulletproof to pain you move better…” [33:06]

“Moving the body and train the muscles In a way that is appropriately strenuous in different planes of motion, it trains the brain and keeps your brain's ability to do those types of things, youthful and effective.” [41:05]

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.

QUOTES:

“You can freaking convince yourself of why you’re doing something every single day, and that’s the problem.” [6:34]

“We talk a lot about gratitude, [...] The problem is, it kept me there because I kept using gratitude as a thing to go to every time I felt sad...” [8:27]

“The messiness of thinking about the negative voice in my head that’s always mean to me. It's just a messy situation of, how on Earth do you stop her from being so cruel, so that you can take those steps forward. [24:52]

“The thing that's pulling my heart is helping people, and I think I got that because I ended up stumbling into it. So, I think anyone that maybe doesn't have a mission, you just got to try stuff.” [33:34]

“What is that thing that is going to pull at your heartstrings that is going to get you to keep going, and if you don't have that you have to try a bunch of things until you figure it out.” [34:01]

“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."

How you react to situations that spark strong responses, good or bad, can feel uncontrollable and much like a knee jerk reaction. How often are you sitting with yourself to observe the emotions you experience when you’re feeling triggered? Are you creating enough distance in time to allow yourself the space to analyze your reaction to the trigger?

Robert Greene is an author and psychologist that is well known and respected for his best-selling books on strategies, power, and seduction. This episode is your go to for all things Robert Greene as he delves into everything from what to do with your dark side and how to leverage that dark energy to the power of self reflection and the nature of language and non verbal languages. Robert discusses with Tom the practical ways to source motivation for real change, and how to live with the joy and bliss of being intune with self and your own nature.

“My worry is that people are so immersed in their smartphones and their technology that they don't understand people...” [27:15]

“Question yourself. Stop assuming that everything you do is so brilliant and smart, and so right.” [34:21]

“As people talk, and they use words to conceal what they're thinking, their bodies reveal what they're actually thinking behind the words…” [41:34]

“Usually the people who think power is a dirty word are the people who are the most manipulative and passive aggressive.” [1:14:54]

“I'm trying to tell people that dark side contains incredible creative energy, incredible motivating power [...] when you get up in the morning, and use it, don't be afraid of it.” [1:36:27]

“We're so embedded in language that we think everything in terms of what people say, but unconsciously without even realizing it. We're continually judging people on their nonverbal behavior.” [1:39:16]

“Social media, for all the good that it does makes it very hard to be self reflective.” [1:57:40]

“If you can't, you know, take Brett breaks from social media, from your Instagram account, from Facebook, from Twitter, then you're a prisoner of it.” [2:17:29]

“What seems to be anarchic and ugly and awful in the moment does end up serving a higher purpose, because we need dynamism in our culture, we need change.” [2:48:19]

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]

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:

0:00 | Introduction to Andrew Huberman
0:28 | Spike Dopamine for Motivation
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.

Still not sure about hypnosis? Witness Tom get hypnotized and describe his experience.

“If you can measure it it’s science, everything else is poetry”

39:30 | Are You Hypnotizable?
51:00 | Tom Gets Hypnotized

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.

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.

“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]

BetterHelp: betterhelp.com/impacttheory

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.

“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

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.

“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]

The DAILY HACKS To Improve Sleep, PREVENT DISEASE & Live Longer! | Roger Seheult

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.

49:09 | Meat vs Plants


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.

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.

QUOTES:
“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.

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.

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]

“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!

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).

“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

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

43:37 | How Tony Continually Embraces Change
48:15 | Tony’s Ultimate Breakthrough 2022 Challenge
54:36 | What Drives Tony to Learn Deeply

QUOTES:
“Progress equals happiness. If you keep growing, you're going to feel alive. And if you keep growing, you're going to have more to give. And when you're growing and giving is when life is magnificent.” [25:45]

“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.

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.

1:50:14 | The Epistemic Approach to Problem-Solving


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]

Becoming unstoppable, going beast mode and executing at the highest level is achievable for anyone and everyone, but only if you really want it. Tom didn’t reach the level of success he’s seen this far by waiting for things to happen or doing barely enough to get by. Reaching new heights of your career and entrepreneurial journey is going to take stepping into the boxing ring with yourself day after day for a sparring match. Elite performers understand that something you have to get bloody and marred in the fight to overcome your failures, the embarrassment of failure and the lack of discipline and skill we all start out with. The only question that matters is what are you ready and willing to do right now where you are. If you want change and you want to experience success like never before, you’re going to need to do things you’ve never done before, and this motivational video is the kickstart you need to get going.

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.

1:19:28 | Bitcoin vs. Gold Standard
1:24:18 | How Bitcoin Will Consume the Bond Market
1:28:06 | Transitioning to a Crypto Economy

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]

About Chuck Palahniuk: Chuck Palahniuk is the author of fourteen novels, among them Fight Club and Choke, which were adapted into feature films. His work also includes a travel guide, a collection of short stories, two graphic novels, a writing advice book, a collection of essays, and two coloring books.

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.

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]

“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]

“I want you from now and forever to imagine yourself standing in a room with 1000 doors, and your job is to know better than anyone else in the company - better than anyone else on the planet - which 999 of those doors to close. That's business.”

In my latest #keynote, I reveal the number one job of every business owner, explain the necessity of thinking from first principles, and challenge audience members to ask me the hardest business question they can think of.

This keynote was filmed at the Driven to Success event in Los Angeles, CA on September 25th, 2021

QUOTES:
“Your business won't fail because of lack of opportunity, your business will fail because you pursue the WRONG opportunity.” [14:15]

“Until you have so much clarity that you know what to do with the next 15 minutes, you're lost. If the next 15 minutes isn't self evident to you, you're lost. So whenever you're like, “I'm not sure what the next move is,” it's because you don't have enough clarity.” [19:11]

“If you can't solve a novel problem, all you can do is copy. Now you can make a career out of being a fast follower. But the only way to get where you want to go is to be able to solve a novel problem.” [22:41]

“The only way to win in life is to be more prepared than everybody else. If you want to win a gold medal in the Olympics, you actually have to be better at that sport than any other human being on planet Earth.” [32:15]

“You can learn anything - but you can also hire almost everything. So the only thing that you must get good at is decision making. If you're not good at decision making, you work for somebody else.” [42:21]

“I promise you, there is not a single problem in any business anywhere where the right set of questions won't lead you to the right answer.” [55:37]

It was reported that roughly 1 in 20 people report having at least one hallucination in a lifetime. Maybe it was drug induced or simply a dream. Either way, how is it that you can have vivid imagery about what feels like reality in the moment? Dr. Jonas Kaplan joins Tom in this conversation to discuss all the ways your brain is filling in the gaps of its own break in knowledge. The brain is truly fascinating to study and so important to understand when you want to be more open-minded and question your beliefs or get a better perception of and understanding of what reality truly is. Part of seeing reality as it really is versus how your brain predicts it to be is coming face to face with information that challenges the beliefs you hold. Jonas and Tom explore research studies that reveal the freaky nature of how our brains really work and ways you can hack your way past the overprotective nature of your brain. Dr. Jonas Kaplan is the Associate Professor of psychology at USC Brain and Creativity Institute, Co-Director of the Dana & David Dornsife Cognitive Neuroimaging Center, and Associate Director for Mindfulness and Neuroimaging for the USC Center for Mindfulness Science

QUOTES:

“The brain builds a model of the world that it has to navigate, right, it builds a simulated picture of what the world is like. That's where beliefs come from.” [2:29]

“The brain wants to create a consistent view of the world. And that provides a motivation to find information that's consistent with what we think.” [8:49]

“Everything's so interconnected that each region of the brain is not corresponding to one particular mental function for the most part...” [24:30]

“Most of us organize our lives in such a way that we never even really have to encounter evidence that challenges our beliefs.” [29:35]

“Feelings are the brain signals that there's some kind of a challenge going on to the body.” [33:37]

“There is probably some value in maintaining our beliefs, and protecting them to some degree, and also in sharing them with other people and building the connections that we have with other people based on shared models of reality” [38:01]

With social media algorithms hacking your attention and focus and everyday life happening at record speeds, you have to become intentional and almost overly protective of your brain. Tom is executing and delivering at an elite level 365 days a year (366 on a leap year) and make no mistake this is by design. Today, he is sharing the 4 main ways he cares for and nurtures his cognitive skills. Taking care of your brain requires that you are aware of all the ways your mental performance is impacted. Tom is sharing exactly what he does on a daily basis as a way of life to keep leveling up and outperforming the competition.

You may be familiar with the saying work hard, play hard, but how does hard work translate to your work ethic? Work ethic is developed and is something that can be improved upon over time. Strong work ethic not only gets the job done, it pulls a driven person through some of the most difficult situations that would deter the common person from even trying. In this episode, you’re going to hear how some of Hollywood's most successful people have decades long careers with monumental success. If you think their talent was enough, guess again. These actors and actresses work just as hard at their skills and their craft as Michal Jordan or Kobe Bryant before the big game. Their successes speak of themselves.

“Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard” -Tim Notke

QUOTES:

“Our biggest competitor is really ourselves [...] overcoming that obstacle of your mind is the number one thing to tackle in pursuing your dreams and your goals.” Hillary Swank [5:59]

“That is super important to be competitive with other people, because they're the ones that push us out of our comfort zone that we didn't even know we were living in.” Hillary Swank [8:24]

“You have to get rid of the people who don't want to play the same game as you do.” John Travolta [13:51]

“When you push yourself beyond what you think is capable, you suddenly realize how capable you are and you're able to just keep pushing and cranking.” Meagan Good [24:53]

“I want to be satisfied and thankful with this is good and this is enough, but I don't want to get comfortable in the sense of like, I know that I can access more. I want to access everything that there is for me to get until there's nothing left.” Meagan Good [28:08]

“So to actually have true freedom, we have to take certain risks. We have to be responsible, more responsible for certain things for ourselves, who we are constantly investigating and interrogating our better selves, to say I'm going to be a little bit better at this tomorrow.” Matthew McConaughey [42:55]

Iain McGilchrist, renowned psychiatrist, author and thinker joins Tom to share some of the key ideas he writes about in his latest 2 volume book, The Matter of Things. Part of what he proposes is that you keep an open mind and be aware that the ideas and images people are so strongly influenced by are in fact myths and stories. The version of what you see in your reality matters to what you decide to see and live your life by.

“It doesn't matter what you look at, it matters what you see.” -Henry David Thoreau

So much of what the world is and who we are is not understood. To think you fully grasp the complexities of consciousness, matter, space and time would be wildly ignorant. Iain perfectly quotes psychologist William James, “ignorance is a sea and knowledge is a drop in that ocean” In this conversation Iain explores ideas of how little we truly know about the cognitive function of the left and right hemispheres of the brain. He highlights the beauty and complexity of order in the universe even where we are unable to fully grasp and understand the order. He’s calling people to be open to the seemingly random chaos and meaninglessness of life to find a better way to live and a better vision of the world we live in. The path of doing so challenges you to embrace the many paradoxical reactions occurring all around us in nature.

27:49 | Objective Reality & Co-Creation

44:16 | The Sacred and Divine
55:44 | Why Belief Matters
1:05:53 | Left Sided Paradox
1:10:57 | Neutralizing Left Sided Thinking

QUOTES:

“Everything that exists, not just in the brain, but in physics, in the world at large in nature, depends on a combination of division and union [...] There needs to be the synthesis of union with division.” [8:59]

“Both hemispheres do everything in some way, but it's all about that ‘in some way’. It's the how not the what. So they do the ‘what’ of the same things, but they do the how of them completely differently.” [12:47]

“The emotional brain is as much the left hemisphere as the right. It specializes in anger, irritability, and doesn't like being crossed.” [28:43]

“Neurology and theology are not at war with one another, they are seeing the same realities just at slightly different levels and in different ways.” [35:42]

“If you want to know about a human being, the brain is a pretty central place to start.” [39:32]

“I would be giving the wrong impression if I said that I know anything about what God is, or I’m a believer in whatever, but it will also be equally wrong to say, ‘I dismiss this or I don't believe it’.” [56:21]

“Belief is not about believing six impossible things before breakfast. It's about a disposition of your mind towards the world.” [57:36]

“We need to be able to keep away from this way of reducing our understanding, keeping ourselves open to all and wonder, keeping ourselves with a little humility about what our intellects can actually do, and having compassion for people who disagree with us.” [59:57]

“We should live in a world where there is virtually nothing that you can't say, it's how you say it.” [1:11:56]

“There are four main pathways to the truth, science, reason, intuition, and imagination. Any worldview that tries to get by without paying due respect to all four of these is bound to fail.” Iain McGilchrist read by Tom [1:16:48]

From the time you were born, dopamine receptors in your brain have been firing off to keep you alive, to keep you motivated and keep you focused on pursuing something worthwhile. If you were born in the digital age of technology where electronic devices and social media started affecting your life directly or indirectly. You easily start feeling like you're not enough, there’s something missing or like you should be doing more than you are.

Anna Lembke is a professor of psychiatry at Stanford University School of Medicine and chief of the Stanford Addiction Medicine Dual Diagnosis Clinic. She writes, “humans are the ultimate seekers.” Because of the way we are wired with the flood of hormones and chemicals released physiologically, we are always looking for the next dopamine hit without ever consciously identifying and labeling it. So, if it is in your nature to pursue a reward that is ever elusive, what reward do you decide to focus on?

In this episode, Anna and Tom explore why using the love of the pursuit as a drug of choice to get dopamine rewards can be very dangerous. Anna also explains the pleasure pain balance and why too much pleasure and too much positive overload is still a form of stress to watch out for.

1:25:10 | Danger in Striving


QUOTES:

“We are hardwired to approach pleasure and avoid pain. And that's really at the heart of our dopamine reward system.” [7:50]

“Any deviation from neutrality is actually a form of stress. In fact, biologists define stress as a deviation from neutrality.” [18:33]

“The richest countries in the world are the countries that have the most suicide, anxiety, depression, and physical pain.” [24:22]

“Because our primitive brains were not wired for an easy, hyper convenient world, we are suffering as a result of all of this access to these feel good things.” [25:10]

“If social media is the main place, or the only place where you get validation, and you feel connected, that's really dangerous.” [1:06:55]

“Don't do the easy thing to get rid of the pain, far better to suffer and come up with a long term solution” Tom Bilyeu [1:08:45]

“The interesting part here is it isn't winning a championship, it's becoming capable of a championship performance.” Tom Bilyeu [1:26:34]

“What is beneficial for you, when you're young, come back to bite you when you're old. “ David Sinclair [5:20]

“A lot of people who are literally pushing themselves with two day, or exercising hard, more than 60 minutes a day, you see a law of diminishing returns, and an increased risk of mortality.” Ben Greenfield [15:17]

“Most people who exercise can't actually tell you why they're doing what they're doing, [...] and I think the sport should be being the most kick ass 100 year old that ever lived.” Peter Attia [20:49]

“Autophagy is like this brilliance within ourselves. And there's so many ways to activate it. And there are so many ways to deactivate it. You don't always want to keep it on” Naomi Whittel [29:35]

Self-awareness is that thing many people claim to have but in no time at all you know this person is completely unaware of themselves. Our versions of reality seem to fall in line with the narrative and stories we constantly remind ourselves of, but the truth is, we’ve constructed a reality shaped and influenced by emotions that were never truthful from the beginning. Robert Greene, just released another book, The Daily Laws, and he joins Tom in this episode to share his profound wisdom and understanding of human nature. He beautifully peels back the layers of complexity around how we are able to perceive the world around us and the way in which we fit into our own stories. The main point Robert drives home is the power of detaching yourself from the emotions and egos to take an honest assessment of what you are truly experiencing.

QUOTES:

“Deal with the world the way that it actually is, and not the way that you wish it were.” Tom Bilyeu [0:26]

“We completely take appearances for reality. That's sort of the source of our problems and our misery to be honest with in life.” [1:10]

“When you're very young you're extremely vulnerable, you're extremely open to the energies of other people in ways we don't understand right now.” [6:38]

“So awareness is everything, the ability to look at yourself, realistically, and understand you're saying, see things as they are, see the world as it is. It begins with yourself, seeing yourself as you are.” [11:28]

“If we saw completely into ourselves, we would hate ourselves so thoroughly, we wouldn't get out of bed, we would all be killing ourselves, you do need a degree of illusion, you need a degree of self esteem and confidence” [20:14]

“We're so attuned to what's cool, to what other people are doing out there, what other people are saying that we lose kind of an intuitive grasp of who we are.” [22:50]

“The source of your power in life is your attitude towards the world.” [25:17]

“When you take 100% ownership, and you look at your life and say, My life is an exact reflection of choices that I've made. Now, if I want it to be different, then I just need only make different choices” Tom Bilyeu [32:39]

Decentralization has sparked more conversation and opinions than we can track. As people become more aware of the cracks in the current financial system, solutions to the ways through and over those existing barriers become more appealing. Richard Craib is the founder of the crowdsourced quant hedge fund, Numerai, which is using sophisticated machine learning to create models that essentially predict how the stock market moves. During this conversation with Tom, Richard is sharing how crypto is breaking the barriers of the old financial system that was meant to protect people, while effectively keeping everyone out. This is another resource that can be really useful in seeing the bitcoin revolution, blockchain and cryptocurrency in another light, especially through the lens of finance.

MindPump: mindpumpimpact.com Thryve: Get 50% off your at-home gut health test at trythryve.com/impact In one of the worst times in history, people across the entire world simultaneously experienced unexpected change and loss beyond anything ever experienced in recent history. The response to such life altering events has varied drastically from person to person and country to country. Some people found opportunities where none existed before, while others sat in disbelief not sure how to move forward or what to do. Dave Hollis has gone through his own sudden changes over the last couple of years, not related to the pandemic, and they’ve been the kind of changes that challenge your identity and the core of who you say you are and who you think of yourself to be. On the other side of these unexpected life events, he’s emerged with an experience to share about what standing in fear looked like while turning what was utterly terrifying into an exhilarating experience worth sharing. Dave shares his journey of losing everything to find everything else he was capable of creating and more once he learned how to construct a new identity, a purpose, and fulfillment through courage. He reminds us in his latest book, Built Through Courage, “the antidote to fear is a plan.” Do you have a plan in place to help you deal with the unexpected changes life is throwing your way?   “It is not until we've lost everything that we can do anything” -Tyler Durden (Fight Club)   Order Dave Hollis new book, Built Through Courage: https://www.amazon.com/Built-Through-Courage-Fears-Meant/dp/B09129JGT6   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction Dave Hollis 1:38 | Unexpected Life Changes 8:18 | Adjusting to New Reality 16:33 | Who You Want To Be 23:34 | Inner Voice Guidance 32:32 | Fulfillment and Purpose 34:56 | Leaving the Known 38:28 | Built Through Courage 45:38 | Stuck in Your Story 50:29 | Toxic Positivity 56:34 | Tested to New Depths 1:02:51 | Becoming Is A Decision   QUOTES:   “There is no control. There's only the way that we respond to the circumstances that life presents” [3:22]   “The place I had to start, to be honest, was really getting intimate with my fear. Because most of why my imagination had been lost was because there was so much fear around trying to figure out something that I'd never contemplated.” [6:50]   “I got to at least build the sail, I gotta put it up so that when the wind starts to come, I'm actually prepared to move forward.” [11:36]   “You think good things are going to come out of this, you will become something because of the post traumatic growth that can come out of the hardest thing that you've ever experienced.” [22:02]   “We're willing to stay inside of suffering that we know, rather than facing the possibility of something new, because the knowns of that existing suffering feel predictable [...] The challenge in pushing away though, is that that safe harbor is surrounded on all sides by fear.” [39:58]   “People get stuck because they let the circumstances of what's happening in real time, cast a probability future, a likely to happen next future, that is clouded by the subjectivity of what they're currently experiencing.” [49:30]   “The way that I feel about my faith is fundamentally different because of having to have my faith tested. I was forced to my knees.” [57:24]   “In the moment, when it feels like life is ending, you forget that there's so many firsts, and so many nexts and so many beautiful moments.” [1:01:17]   Follow Dave Hollis: Website: https://mrdavehollis.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mrdavehollis/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/MrDaveHollis LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/dave-hollis-b5a48671/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mrdavehollis YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnB48Dc40d9vLvkyUfUcMlA

Does eating a high calorie meal affect you worse than a lower calorie, higher carb meal? Herman Pontzer, an evolutionary biologist, did a research study on a hunter gatherer community called Hazda in Tanzania, to learn about energy expenditure. What he’s discovered flips everything you thought you knew about calories and carbs upside down. He’s joining Tom to expose why the data shows that carbs in a calorie controlled environment do not matter. Meaning, it is possible to theoretically go on a Twinkie diet (please don’t) and still lose weight when calories are adhered to. Herman is using data to push back on how calories are burned and how they signal your brain to control your weight.   Order Herman Pontzer’s book, Burn: New Research Blows the Lid Off How We Really Burn Calories, Lose Weight, and Stay Healthy : https://www.amazon.com/Burn-Research-Really-Calories-Healthy/dp/0525541527   Also check out the Hazda Fund (https://www.hadzafund.org/about) to learn more about the Hazda culture   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction to Herman Pontzer 1:40 | The Calorie Debate 6:14 | How We Burn Energy 12:09 | Obesity Starts In The Brain 14:43 | Hypothalamus Function 19:25 | Brain Response to Calories 29:06 | Food Calorie Signaling 32:36 | Optimal Lifestyle 34:53 | Processed Food Brain Hack 38:31 | Why Sugar Is A Problem 42:22 | Hi Carb Diet Weight Loss 45:24 | Fantasy Diet Study   QUOTES:   “The problem is that when we begin to say, oh, that must have been something in the food that you ate, rather than, oh, it's something in your individual response to that extra energy.” [21:33]   “It really does come down to the calories or what determines the weight change or maintenance, not the carb level.” [24:13]   “The argument is, is this more in the weeds? Is it fat cells and pancreas? Or is it brain cells and sensing?” [32:29]   “It is my job to keep eyes open and look across cultures and look across human experiences and see that diversity and understand all of it is pretty normal. That the universe of normal for humans is pretty darn broad.” [33:11]   “Sugar is a fructose molecule and a glucose molecule stuck together, and when it gets into your blood, that's what it is.” [38:38]   Follow Herman Pontzer: Website: https://sites.duke.edu/pontzerlab/people/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/hermanpontzer Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/hpontzer/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/herman.pontzer

What do athletes have that entrepreneurs and anyone looking to reach max potential can learn from? It’s their work ethic. Hardcore, unrelenting, straight up grind-this-sh*t-out work ethic that shows up and does the work Every. Single. Day. Recent numbers report approximately 8% of the American population are millionaires. What’s stopping the masses from achieving wealth and success on their own terms? You could say politics, social issues and a lot of other things, but the reality is those reasons are not stopping everyone. Jim Rohn said, “Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do. Don’t wish it were easier; wish you were better.” In this episode, these high level athletes share tips to help you develop a champion mindset. We know how important the work is to do, but consistency is key, and the process includes doing the right things everyday no matter what.   “What you create, creates you” Anthony Trucks, Former NFL Athlete   Tips to help you develop your champion mindset: 1. Do the right things every day, consistency is key. 2. Dream the big goal and believe you’re capable of achieving it. 3. The way you make others feel around you is important. 4. Do the hard things with intention to be prepared. 5. Push through the pain in pursuit of your goals. 6. Be average with extraordinary dreams and desire 7. Always outwork the competition. 8. Help people in their journey to fuel your own journey. 9. Sometimes you have to tap into your dark side. 10.

It's about really loving what you do and who you are, but loving the fact that you get to do what you love for other people.” Lori Harder [40:59]   “In order for us to grow as a spirit or warriors, no matter if it's physical, or just theoretical, [...] You have to have a good unified body in terms of body, mind, spirit.” Rickson Gracie [45:43]     Follow Nastia Liukin: https://nastialiukin.com/ Follow James Lawrence: https://www.ironcowboy.com/ Follow Michael Strahan: http://www.michaelstrahan.com/ Follow Anthony Trucks: https://anthonytrucks.com/ Follow Dotsie Bausch: https://dotsiebauschusa.com/ Follow Rickson Gracie: https://www.ricksongracie.com/ Follow Devon Harris: https://www.devonharris.com/ Follow Jay Wlliams: https://twitter.com/RealJayWilliams Follow Lori Harder: https://www.loriharder.com/

Having a complete understanding of the financial system we’ve become accustomed to since birth is not only advantageous, but it’s an absolute must.  The gap between really understanding the impact and full gravity of inflation and living by a feeling or a suspicion is too wide to ignore. Nic Carter is an entrepreneur, investor, columnist and advisor in the Bitcoin crypto space. He’s joining Tom today to break down some principle ideas and thoughts to help you at least research what you should be doing with your money, your government issued and government backed money. What’s happening with crypto and NFTs isn’t something you can ignore or sleep through. Bitcoin has been going strong for more than a decade. You have a moral obligation to yourself and to your family to at least understand how inflation works, why increasing assets is like theft of your dollar’s value and how you can protect yourself and be part of the wealth redistribution in a way that benefits you more than harms you.   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction to Nic Carter 1:31 | Does Bitcoin Matter? 4:21 | What is Money? 8:52 | Creating Devalued Money 14:43 | Redistribution & Inflation of Assets 22:24 | Reacting to Inflation 27:54 | Japan’s Stagflation 36:57 | Energy, Euphoria & Bitcoin 40:47 | Fiat Money Explained 45:10 | Do Research Money 49:16 | Bitcoin Value Vs Fiat Value 54:13 | Bitcoin, Digital Gold 57:52 | Value System by Design   QUOTES:   “Devaluing the monetary medium that we store our work and labor in is always redistributive. So it's effectively a way to reapportion societal resources from some group to another group.” [9:59]   “there's a wealth effect whereby people feel richer, and then they spend more like if the value of your 401k goes a lot, goes up a lot, you're probably willing to buy that nice new car, if the value of your house goes up a lot” [16:23]   “There's nothing that guarantees that public equity investors in the US are going to earn 7% every year for the rest of all time.” [31:38]   “As an entrepreneur in the crypto space, and someone who allocates capital, my best hope is to sort of create the tools and the systems that regular folks can use to potentially escape a ruinous Fiat system.” [40:15]   “The government cultivates an environment in which the dollar has value. They have certain tools to do that, one is tax policy...” [42:09]   “The first thing is just not not accepting uncritically the narratives coming out of sort of our monetary elites in this country.” [49:06]   Follow Nic Carter: Website: https://niccarter.info/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/nic__carter

Justworks: justworks.com If you've been following the cryptocurrency and NFT conversation with us recently, you’ll appreciate this incredible conversation with Robert Breedlove, a freedom maximalist and bitcoin-focused entrepreneur. If you haven’t been following along, jump in now. This episode is less NFT and crypto wallet focused and more educational in that Robert breaks down inflation like very few can. Understanding something at its foundational level allows you to really think from first principles, which empowers you to make better decisions. Cryptocurrency is built on technology and Bitcoin has been performing like no other asset in history, but why and how is this possible? You may need to watch this a few times, and may be even better with pen and paper to take notes. This is a crash course and deep dive on money, inflation, what property is, and why assets matter.   Robert shares 5 properties of money:   1. Divisibility 2. Durability 3. Recognizability 4. Portability 5. Scarcity   Resources mentioned in this episode:   WTF Happened in 1971: https://wtfhappenedin1971.com/ Masters and Slaves of Money: https://breedlove22.medium.com/masters-and-slaves-of-money-255ecc93404f Dishonest Money: https://www.amazon.com/Dishonest-Money-Financing-Road-Ruin-ebook/dp/B004P1J0PQ Sovereign Individual: https://www.amazon.com/Sovereign-Individual-Mastering-Transition-Information/dp/0684832720 Thank God for Money: https://www.amazon.com/Thank-God-Bitcoin-Corruption-Redemption/dp/1641991216   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction Robert Breedlove 0:34 | Inflation and Fiat Explained 6:17 | Defining Money & Property 10:47 | Compromised Property Value 16:05 | Wealth Redistribution of Assets 23:59 | What is Money 26:16 | The 5 Properties of Money 33:51 | Central Banking Corrupt Power 40:13 | Counterfeit Inflation 48:32 | Life, Liberty and Property 56:48 | Bitcoin Absolute Scarcity 1:07:21 | Government Disruption 1:13:50 | Declining Power of Government 1:23:20 | Implication of Bitcoin 1:30:47 | Purchasing Power of Bitcoin 1:40:43 | Sovereign Individual Insights 1:48:30 | Decentralized NFTs & Crypto 1:51:03 | Thank God for Bitcoin     QUOTES:   “Money is also a psycho technology. It's like literacy or numeracy. It's a software implementation we put into our brain, we use it to communicate, negotiate [and] plan.” [6:42]   “We typically think property is the house, the car, the stock, whatever. That's not what property is, properties and relationships. It's an exclusively acknowledged relationship between the owner and the asset”   “It contradicts the premise of self ownership, when we give power away to a single institution” [10:26]   “I like to say central banking, and the fiat currency complex is as clear as mud and twice as dirty.” [16:48]   “When we look at money, the five properties that market actors voluntarily favor, you could also think of as the five services we seek from money…” [26:16]   “When money is losing its value over time. We're all incentivized to be more short term thinking. This is a de-civilizing force.” [39:07]   “There is no difference between counterfeiting and inflating the amount of dollars in the system.” [40:13]   “Inflation is legalized counterfeiting. Counterfeiting is criminalized inflation.” [43:33]   “We have tried to rationalize and formulate different ways of creating socio economic structures that favored the few that could understand it and create that privilege for themselves at the expense of others.” [56:35]   “Bitcoin is an innovation as significant as the Gutenberg printing press actually, and I think the implications of its emergence will be similarly disruptive to institutions in the world.” [1:10:07]   “When the institution tries to clamp down on the disruptive technology, the subversive technology, it actually drives it to its highest and most useful form of some subversion” [1:12:24]   “Another definition of money. It's an insurance policy on uncertainty. The only reason people are holding money is for its option value.” [1:35:23]   “To walk across the room, implies that you value being on the other side of the room more than you value sitting where you currently are. So we are constantly and unavoidably expressing our values through action.” [1:55:22]   Follow Robert Breedlove: YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC43_LTf5Z4lbRjKCq0sIAVg Twitter: https://twitter.com/Breedlove22 LinkedIn:https://www.linkedin.com/in/breedlove22/ Podcast: https://whatismoneypodcast.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/breedlove_22/

Sleep is not only an essential function that allows us to recharge mentally and physically, it’s also deemed so important that going without sleep was banned by Guinness World Records. The record for going without sleep was officially given to Randy Gardner who managed to survive 11 days without sleep in 1964 while giving himself a form of dementia. Obviously this is not the path to take for increasing productivity and optimizing your quality of life, but many of us are short changing our sleep every night and have been doing so for years. Sleep is something that should be protected and guarded at all costs if you want to execute consistently at a high level and optimize for higher output and results. Here are Tom’s 10 tips to help you prioritize your sleep even if you’re burning the candle at both ends, there is no excuse and no way around prioritizing your sleep hygiene.   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction to Sleep Routine 0:42 | Get Sun Exposure 1:53 | Move Your Body 2:38 | Stop Eating Crap 7:12 | Reduce Artificial Light 12:39 | Separate Your Blankets 14:45 | Keep The Bedroom Cool 16:07 | Tape Your Mouth Shut 17:55 | Fall Back Asleep 21:16 | Never Set an Alarm 22:33 | Bonus Tip   QUOTES:   “The second you wake up, get out, go outside and get that sun exposure” [1:26]   “For the last hour before bed, I'm doing fun things and doing things that give me energy that makes me feel light that are part of that passion that feel good.” [8:56]   “I only have one job now that I'm going to bed and that job is to sleep.” [9:38]   “Make sure that you don't have an alarm staring you in the face and that you get whatever amount of sleep you need.” [22:02]   “Recognizing that you can shift your state and get into that much more pleasant place is really powerful. And to even do that, on your worst days, is incredibly beneficial.” [23:40]

When you sit back allow yourself to really dream, often the dream you have is beautiful but it’s also big, a little scary, and intimidating. Big dreams and big goals feel nearly impossible. It’s hard to fathom how you’re supposed to get from where you are in this moment to this far away goal that’s hard to conceptualize. James “Iron Cowboy” Lawrence completed 50 consecutive Iron-Distance Triathlons covering 7,030 miles with 0.24% of those miles completed indoors due to inclement weather. He joins Tom and breaks down the backlash he got for doing less than 17 miles indoors, and reveals the real mental fortitude and personal challenges he faced that lead him to deciding on completing 100 consecutive Iron-Distance Triathlons this time, plus one.   James talks about what it really means to do hard things, and how the secret of achieving your goals is in the journey, the failures, and the lessons that prepare you for the actual goal. He’s opening up about what his post-recovery has become and the challenges he’s overcoming for that as well.   Order the Iron Cowboy’s book, Redefining Impossible: https://amzn.to/3k4XhFQ Check out James’ 1st Interview with Tom, Push Past Pain: https://youtu.be/cgU7abzvSQk   SHOW NOTES:   1:02 | Why Do the Hard Things 7:10 | 100% Physical & 100% Mental 13:56 | Goals Change Perspective 20:08 | Confront Your Weakness 24:59 | 101 Iron-Distance Triathlons 42:10 | Set Your Own Standards 52:57 | Why Do 1 More Than 100 58:37 | Post-Recovery Stage   QUOTES:   “Doing hard things with intent is preparation for the unknown.” [2:18]   “Motion creates emotion, and you have to experience something and feel it in order to have an experience or knowledge with it.” [4:00]   “Mastering that continual conversation and beatdown that we have with ourselves is one of the most important pieces to that puzzle.” [9:42]   “Why people fail is because they rush straight to that big goal and they miss out on everything in between, which is the most important part.” [14:48]   “You need to meet yourself where you're at, on your journey. And over time, your perception perspective will change about what's possible for you.” [18:20]   “You wouldn't do something if you knew how damn hard it was going to be, and you wouldn't do something if you had all the answers, and you don't start as the expert.” [34:34]   “What you say you're going to do is the expectation, and if you deviate from that, it gives them permission to then attack you.” [43:23]   “We don't know what tomorrow is gonna bring, and if you quit now you're never going to find out and that would be the most tragic thing you do on your journey…” [49:46]   Follow James Lawrence: Website: https://www.ironcowboy.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/IronCowboyJames Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/IronCowboy/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ironcowboyjames/

When you think of someone being courageous, it’s easy to think of police, fire fighters, and military. Maybe the person that risked their life to help a total stranger in a time of need comes to mind as being courageous. But courage manifests in many ways than not just the physical acts that we default to. Ryan Holiday joins Tom to discuss his new book, Courage Is Calling. He explains how courage is ongoing.It’s about the moments and opportunities that are presented where you choose to act in courage, or you show up reckless without regard, or you choose the cowardly thing in that moment. Ryan unpacks having courage, acting in courage, and where it falls in the spectrum between being reckless and being a coward. Even the term coward seems harsh when you realize you may be guilty of acting cowardly at different points in your life. You’ve chosen to “save face” and look after your personal safety and benefit at some point, and it’s okay, we all have. Ryan further explains through his personal experiences that doing the courageous thing is not always self-evident, and that these moments will present themselves. This is a great jumping off point to exercise your courage muscle, do the heroic things and start living to a higher standard today.   Order Ryan Holiday’s new book, Courage Is Calling: https://amzn.to/3i0XRmD   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction Ryan Holiday 0:21 | Why Live by Virtues 7:57 | Intuitive Nature of Courage 13:08 | Put Yourself Out There 19:28 | Inspired Cynical Ideas 28:51 | Integrate Truth & Courage 35:18 | Responsibility to Past Lessons 41:29 | Middle of Reckless and Coward 48:02 | Is It Reckless Or Cowardice? 1:00:52 | Failing to be Courageous 1:08:11 | Not Acting Courageous 1:15:59 | Get More Courageous 1:21:34 | Courageous is Contagious 1:31:17 | Ryan’s Heroes & Standards   QUOTES:   “That's kind of the idea of virtues, is to create sort of a structure that you can live in, that guides you so you're not again winging it on these critical decisions.” [7:03]   “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 read by Tom [12:21]   “History is not just a parade of shitty people and crimes and awfulness and hypocrites, that we are making progress and things are getting better and it's getting better because people were courageously committed to ideas and ideals, and risked themselves and their reputations to try to make those things more real.” [22:45]   “You don't get to stick your head in the sand and deny that facts are facts, but you have to decide what facts are you going to take and integrate into your understanding of the world, and what your imperative as an individual is.” [31:28]   “What do you do with the little moments that life offers you? Do you make the brave choice Or the cowardly choice?” [34:32]   “If the fight doesn't need to happen, it's not courageous to start it [....] deciding what battles need to be fought, what risks need to be taken, how risk can be taken off the table if it's not necessary. This is an important part of courage. It's not just, I don't feel fear.” [44:49]   “The thing you're hesitating on doing, the considerations, are usually very helpful in reminding you of what actually matters.” [51:33]   “Courage isn't this thing where you're either courageous or you're not. It's more a thing you do, day to day.” [1:14:54]   “If you think about courage as like, very rarely the easy way, and almost always the harder way, you can build that as a muscle” [1:17:21]   “The decision to quit, the decision to give up, the decision to concede, that's ultimately a power that you always have.” [1:20:19]   “Everyone tells you, it's a bad idea, until you definitively prove it was a good idea. And then the curse is that it looks like it was obvious all along.” [1:25:30]     Follow Ryan Holiday: Website: https://dailystoic.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/ryanholiday   Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ryanholiday Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ryanholiday/

The problem is that you, and nearly every other person around, defaults to being at the mercy of the people, the environments, and unfortunate situations that mark the course of life. Mel Robbins is the personification of motivation on steroids packed with a high potency of raw truth. You could say she’s joining Tom to discuss her newest book, The High 5 Habit, but it’s more fitting to say she’s back to give you the kick in the ass you’ve been waiting for. Mel is not only talking about why high fiving yourself is powerful, she’s reminding you that you have a responsibility to heal yourself and do the work. While you’re chasing your dreams, understand that what the world sees as failure may just be a massive success in the timeline of your life, as has been the case for Mel Robbins.   Order Mel’s new book, The High 5 Habit: https://www.amazon.com/High-Habit-Take-Control-Simple-ebook/dp/B096JQSWQ6   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 Introduction Mel Robbins 1:42 | A-Ha Moments In Life 7:20 | Why High 5 Yourself 19:54 | Feel Worth Celebrating 25:15 | R.A.S. Looking for Hearts 34:59 | Powerful of Jealousy 37:44 | Life Is Your Responsibility 47:38 | Interrupting Destructive Worry 51:37 | Mel’s Vermont Painting   QUOTES:   “I hope that when somebody listens to our conversation and watches this that they have a massive a-ha moment, but it’s not going to mean fucking shit if you don’t take action and do something about it.” [3:01]   “You are going to find yourself not at 25, but 45 or 65, and you're going to be so filled with regret that you never fucking put a bet on yourself.” [6:29]   “When you start to have a moment with yourself, the crazy part is you start to build a partnership with yourself.” [15:01]   “Beating yourself up will not make you do the work to get healthy, and tearing yourself down over the shit that you've done or the terrible relationships that you're in it's not going to empower you to change the patterns that are keeping you stuck.” [24:50]   “The thing about jealousy is, it's just your inspiration that's blocked. Jealousy is sort of the insecurity that you have that blocks this inspiration” [35:55]   “Most people aren't obsessed with their goals, because they don't believe they're worthy of them.” [40:36]   “If you don't, at some point, be defiant, against what the world or your caregivers or your past experience has pounded into your brain incorrectly, unfairly, you will forever be stuck with that story.” [41:16]   “You can have nothing, and you can still have your own back. You can have tremendous problems and very real obstacles that you're facing, and you can have a mindset that says, through my efforts, my attitude, I can have an impact on the situation that I'm in.” [45:09]   Follow Mel Robbins: Website: https://melrobbins.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/melrobbins Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/melrobbins/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/melrobbins/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/melrobbins

People have been obsessing and hearing about dopamine and its role in human behavior for years. You may think of it as the feel-good happy hormone, or you may associate it with addiction, love, lust and sex. As our lives convert over to a totally digital experience that is with us everywhere we are in the form of a cell phone, dopamine detox has even started gaining in popularity. Dr. Andrew Huberman from the Huberman Lab is back again to unpack some of the more surprising discoveries and uses of dopamine. He cleverly relates dopamine to being a biological currency that has a role to play in human desire for more. Dopamine is the catalyst pushing humanity forward exploring things like cryptocurrency and pushing our limitations and what is possible, but is all of that for the sake of pleasure and feeling good? Dr. Huberman breaks down the eternal balance of pain and pleasure, arousal and relaxation and gives you the insight you need to start regulating your body’s dopamine release. If you thought dopamine was all about feeling good, Dr. Huberman is about to reveal why it’s more about what motivates you in the pursuit of something greater.   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction Dr. Andrew Huberman 0:56 | Dopamine the Biological Currency 6:51 | Releasing Dopamine 10:38 | Hormonal Signaling 14:34 | Can We Spike Dopamine? 21:00 | Value the Pursuit & the Dips 25:40 | Balance of Pain and Pleasure 31:23 | Self Regulation of Dopamine 38:28 | Dopamine and Time Perception 44:31 | Dopamine and Overindulging 49:05 | Action Based Denial 52:42 | Using Rules & Dopamine 58:27 | Ways to Get Motivated   QUOTES:   “When I say dopamine is the universal currency of everything, what I mean is, it's driving the motivation to develop new currencies.” [3:08]   “Celebrating the win more than the pursuit, it actually sets you up for failure in the future.” [16:00]   “If you can start to register that craving, and that friction and that desire, that almost kind of low level of agitation, sometimes high level of agitation [...] that's dopamine...” [17:54]   “Your capacity to tap into dopamine as a motivator, not just seeking dopamine rewards, that is infinite.” [19:34]   “It's the craving that makes me feel alive. So it's the state of wanting that is in and of itself, the pleasurable act.” [22:37]   “It doesn't matter if it's Bitcoin or aetherium, it doesn't matter if it's putting rockets on other planets, it doesn't matter if it's building the first automobile, it's the same currency.” [25:27]   “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,” [29:51]   “The more pain you experience, the more dopamine you can achieve. If you get back on the avenue of pursuit.” [30:58]   “I would say addiction is a progressive narrowing of the things that bring you pleasure, and I don't like to comment too much on enlightenment, [...] but a good life is a progressive expansion of the things that bring you pleasure, and even better is a good life is a progressive expansion of the things that bring you pleasure and includes pleasure through motivation and hard work. “ [32:55]   “If you think about most of the growth in life comes from these rigidly externally imposed schedules and we hate them. But they are where we learn restraint” [52:42]     Follow Andrew Huberman: Website: https://hubermanlab.com/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/andrewhubermanlab Twitter: https://twitter.com/hubermanlab Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/hubermanlab/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/hubermanlab Podcast: https://hubermanlab.com/

Both scenarios are worthwhile, as Tom is joined by the world renowned evolutionary biologist, Richard Dawkins. Trying to fully grasp how the human mind works and what role evolution plays with our emotions, thought processes and sexual selection can be overwhelming. Tom highlights the inspiring works from Richard and discusses some complex ideas from his latest book, Books Do Furnish A Life. This is a deep dive into what evolution is, and raises the question of whether or not science, technology, and the human search for meaning and exploration has surpassed our basic evolutionary need for survival. Where does that leave humanity and what options are potential solutions worth exploring?   Order Richard Dawkins new book, Books Do Furnish A Life: https://amzn.to/39fEeSU   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction Richard Dawkins 1:34 | How The Mind Works 7:28 | Nature of Thought & Emotion 14:01 | Emergent Properties Beyond Survival 21:13 | Lack Of Evolving Creativity 29:30 | The Great Leap Forward 30:46 | Evolution of Sexual Selection 41:25 | The Handicap Principle 45:17 | Human Sexual Selection 57:13 | Genetic Variance 1:04:07 | Finding Origin of Life 1:10:55 | Natural Selection & DNA 1:27:29 | Writing Sci-Fi & Morality 1:37:58 | Hard Problem of Consciousness 1:41:32 | Memes + Hyper Connectivity   QUOTES:   “What I tried to do in my writing career is to emphasize the rational, thoughtful side of the brain, and to not deny the existence of the emotional, but to try to foster the control of the emotions by reason.” [6:48]   “What the human mind achieves today, in the form of science in particular, technology, is utterly bewildering when you think about it in an evolutionary context. It is so far beyond what we're ever naturally selected to do.”   “The origin of life on this planet is not a highly implausible event, it’s not a very rare event...” [1:09:49]   “The idea that every particle in the universe has a minute mote of consciousness seems to me to be complete rubbish.” [1:39:17]   “It's got to be a manifestation of great complexity of interacting units. No, one of which is conscious in itself, but when you put them together, consciousness emerges from the interactions among them.” [1:40:47]   “Cultural evolution is a real phenomenon, it really looks like evolution, it really has the same progressive qualities as evolution does.” [1:42:39]   “I introduced the idea of the meme as a virus of the mind. Something that goes viral is this successful meme.” [1:45:56]   Follow Richard Dawkins: Website: https://richarddawkins.net/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/rdfrs Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/RichardDawkinsFoundation/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/richard_dawkins/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/richarddawkinsdotnet

Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying are two Evolutionary Biologists that give you the facts, discoveries and observations as they see it. Tom reads a direct quote from their latest book that says, “We are headed for collapse. Civilization is becoming incoherent around us.” Bret and Heather break down fundamental ideas behind what humans have learned from evolution for thousands of years, how corrupt the science community has become, and how to parent your children with the goal of mitigating risks while they are younger. These biologists are incredibly fascinating with novel ideas of what adaptation would look like for humans if we are careful and intentional.   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction to Bret & Heather 0:30 | Headed for a Collapse 3:02 | Learning From Evolution 6:43 | How Are Humans Fish? 13:18 | Solving Novel Problems 18:37 | Redefining Language & Jargon 27:03 | Defining What Science Is 34:14 | Corrupted Science Incentives 39:50 | Break Down Of Society 44:04 | Evolutionary Toolkit 48:27 | Recover from Helicopter Parents 55:34 | Prepare Children for Risks 1:04:41 | Rite of Passage 1:07:05 | The Fourth Frontier 1:15:22 | Steady State Craftsmanship 1:20:59 | Value of Liberty   QUOTES:   “Some things about what we are, are very difficult to change, some things are actually trivial, easily changed, and knowing which is which is a matter of sorting out where the information is housed.” Bret Weinstein [6:24]   “If you use your intuitive, honed instincts, in order to sort through novel problems, you will constantly up and yourself because those instincts aren't built with those problems in mind.” Bret Weinstein [13:23]   “Let's figure out how to use language that we can all agree on and understand and know, for the purposes of communication, as opposed to for the purposes of displaying group membership.” Heather Heying [23:31]   “Teaching undergraduates means exposing yourself and the thinking that you are presenting to naive minds who will throw curveballs at you, and some of those curveballs are going to be nuisances, and maybe they'll waste your time, but some of them are likely to reveal to you the frailty in your own thinking or in the thinking of the field.” Heather Heying [26:05]   “Being courageous about actually acknowledging what you don't know, often leads to the best conversations” Bret Weinstein [26:52]   “We need science where things are sufficiently difficult to observe or counterintuitive.” Bret Weinstein [29:53]   “wherever perception is the mediator of success, you have deception as an important evolutionary force” Bret Weinstein [32:19]   “back away from that which is novel, and untested, and in the direction of that, which is time tested. And it will result in a decrease in anxiety and increase in your control over your own life.” Bret Weinstein [50:49]   “Our brains are anti fragile, and our bones are anti fragile, and they become stronger with stressors.” Heather Heying [1:01:00]   “The very thing that made us so successful as a species is now setting us up for disaster.” Bret Weinstein [1:25]   “Some things about what we are, are very difficult to change, some things are actually trivial, easily changed, and knowing which is which is a matter of sorting out where the information is housed.” Bret Weinstein [6:24]   “If you use your intuitive, honed instincts, in order to sort through novel problems, you will constantly up and yourself because those instincts aren't built with those problems in mind.” Bret Weinstein [13:23]   Follow Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying: Website: https://bretweinstein.net/ Darkhorse Podcast: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAWCKUrmvK5F_ynBY_CMlIA Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/official.bretweinstein/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/bret.weinstein/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/bretweinstein   Follow Heather Heying: Website: https://naturalselections.substack.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100069090715633 Twitter: https://twitter.com/HeatherEHeying

Good news, chances are it never will. Bad news, chances are it’s not going away and if you’ve been avoiding this conversation, it needs to end today. Cryptocurrency is the fastest growing technology we’ve ever witnessed in human history. 10 years ago people doubted it, laughed at it, and blew it off. Today, countries like Nigeria, Vietnam and the Philippines are starting to adopt crypto. What is often rejected and feared is typically not understood. While billionaires and master investors once turned their backs to Bitcoin and the crypto world, they are slowly coming around and see the potential of what this currency and technology really is. Anthony Pompliano joins Tom to put you on notice and help you better understand exactly why low income and middle class people literally cannot afford to continue dismissing the potential for building wealth with cryptocurrency. Blockchain is happening and there is a major shift in wealth and purchasing power taking place. You owe it to yourself and to your future generations to at least do some more research, investigate and find out how you can better leverage the potential that a new digital world represents for you. The cost of entry is low, it’s decentralized, and for the first time you are not restricted by your income to take advantage.   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction Anthony Pompliano 0:50 | Disadvantage of Non-Investors 7:27 | Understanding Personal Finance 13:18 | Cryptocurrency and Fiat Money 20:44 | Bitcoin’s Volatility Advantages 25:36 | Breadcrumbs for Going Digital 30:50 | Increasing Purchasing Power 35:22 | Censored Payment Systems 46:15 | Benefit of Open Payment System 56:23 | Decentralized Tech Structure 1:03:00 | Predicting vs. Observing Market 1:09:45 | Digital Versions of Analog (NFTs) 1:20:05 | Blockchain Is Happening 1:31:13 | The Monetary Revolution 1:38:55 | Bitcoin Global Reserve Currency 1:47:04 | Why Pomp Choices Bitcoin   QUOTES:   “Poor people spend the middle class, save, and then the wealthy invest.” Tom Bilyeu [0:24]   “There’s really one key rule that everyone has to understand, which is, the dollars will be worth less than purchasing power terms over a long period of time.” [3:43]   “It's easy to mock and make fun of these young people. But these young people are interested in understanding how does the market works.” [8:03]   “It is impossible, literally impossible in America to get a financial security position by saving” [10:21]   “I can either suffer at the hands of this system, or I can flip around to the other side table, and I can benefit from the system. Every single rich person understands how to benefit from the system, hold assets, not a currency” [18:46]   “All money, at the end of the day, is a unit of time.” [31:28]   “Bitcoin, specifically, it has a financial component that is unavailable and other assets, it is systematically built to continue to protect your purchasing power” [33:02]   “The more that you can be a market observer, rather than a market predictor, you start to just understand, crazy stuff happens.” [1:07:03]   “The digital version of something is always bigger than the analog version” [1:10:19]   “Everything you think is cool is going to go to zero, and everything that you think is dumb is going to moon.” Tom Bilyeu [1:19:36]   Follow Anthony Pompliano: Website: https://www.anthonypompliano.com/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCevXpeL8cNyAnww-NqJ4m2w Twitter: https://twitter.com/APompliano

Dr. William Li is an internal medicine doctor from the Harvard Medical School Faculty that studies angiogenesis, and is the author of the best-selling book, Eat To Beat Disease. Dr. Li is breaking down the 5 natural body defenses protecting you at all times, even right now, and exactly how powerful foods are that can prevent disease in your body.

But that is very problematic” [2:40]   “Health is not just the absence of disease, it is the result of our body's own hardwired defense systems, health defense systems that we’re born with.” [3:09]   “Organic coffee has more bioactives than the pesticide treated coffee because the insects, the natural things in the environment cause it to create more natural health defenses.” [39:36]   “Eating to beat disease is not just picking a particular disease and trying to figure out what the recipe is that the one size fits all.

Though success is something many people strive for, it has also been the byproduct of escape for many. Facing yourself in the mirror, the story you tell about yourself, and the heartache and trauma you’ve experienced can take the back seat in pursuit of greatness. Maybe enough success will make it all hurt less. Bobby Hall, AKA Logic, hasn’t had an easy start in life. Coming from an abusive family, exposed to too much at a young age has a role in how he arrived at throwing himself into his art and being one of the greatest rappers in hip hop. Bobby breaks down his journey, why he wrote his memoir and where he is now ending the career of Logic that he’s spent over a decade building.   Bobby’s Bio: As an author, Logic released the novel Supermarket (2019), which was accompanied by a soundtrack of the same name. The book became a New York Times Best Seller, but both works received generally mixed to negative critical reception. Logic is also a streamer, and signed exclusively with Twitch, becoming the first musician to do so.   Order Bobby Hall’s memoir, This Bright Future: https://amzn.to/3kQtPmf   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction Bobby Hall “Logic” 2:12 | Escaping Family Trauma 6:21 | Defining Who Is Bobby Hall 9:43 | Piecing Together the Narrative 15:29 | It’s Never Good Enough 20:56 | Build Your Own Family 25:32 | How It All Started 32:09 | Coping With Anxiety 37:14 | Adaptable Is Unstoppable 44:14 | Ignoring Negative Voices 47:53 | Success Without Bitterness 57:07 | Finding Total Confidence 1:00:55 | Advice for Creative Artists 1:08:18 | The End of Logic   QUOTES:   “The goals I had, as a young man and a musician and a creative person, were bullshit.” [16:54]   “There's always going to be something in our lives, there's always going to be something that isn't right. But we can't let it stop us from doing what we love.” [35:40]   “So many people have underlining things that they deal with personally, that nobody else would know [...] you got to live with it, adaptation. It's one of our greatest features. [39:46]   “When I look at other people, when they tell me their dreams, and their ambitions, and all this, I see this child inside of them that is pure and excited, and I root for that person.” [43:21]   “Being happy with the person I see in the mirror. has allowed me to not let that bitterness grow” [54:47]   “It took me being physically the strongest I'd ever been, the biggest I'd ever been in my life, to realize that all of that had nothing to do with strength, and that I had been strong my whole life. And I didn't need some outward physique to show me that or prove that to anybody else.” [56:32]   “Looking in the mirror now older, I've realized, everyone's full of shit. Nobody knows what they're talking about. I don't know shit. Why am I worried about this?” [58:22]   “Taking away the words of people and the thoughts that have been implanted in my head by people about myself is probably the most freeing thing I've been working on.” [59:28]   “I soaked up every piece of information that I could, so that I could be better at what I wanted to do, and if you are not prepared to wake up every day, to kind of like, fuck your life up, you know, turn down dates and hanging out with friends and all these things. Then don't do it.” [1:06:47]   “It was worth it up into that moment.

Raoul Pal is a master investor that has seen the evolution of the world’s financial systems riding the highs and experiencing the lows as well. As respected as he is in macroeconomics, Raoul joins Tom for this conversation to broadcast the opportunity available for massive wealth transfer, and to break down exactly why the crypto revolution is happening and why it’s worth being excited about. If you’ve been avoiding the conversation or are excited and can’t get enough, this conversation holds massive value for everyone.   Books mentioned in this episode: George Soros, The Alchemy of Finance Ben Horowitz, The Hard Thing About Hard Things Jared Diamond, Guns, Germs, and Steel William Strauss and Neil Howe, The Fourth Turning   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction Raoul Pal 0:58 | Who Is Raoul Pal? 5:19 | The Problems Crypto Solves 8:42 | Speed of Technology 12:31 | Equal Opportunity for Wealth 15:20 | Tom’s Crypto Story 19:38 | From Money to Crypto 25:35 | Ethereum Usability & Bitcoin 35:08 | Raoul Being Open Minded 41:02 | Dollar Cost Averaging 48:23 | Don’t Use Leverage 53:10 | Riding the Volatility of Crypto 1:01:50 | Percentage Allocation of Wealth 1:08:09 | Opportunity for Anyone 1:12:47 | Accredited Investor Scam 1:15:57 | Tokenization and NFTs 1:23:54 | Real Value of Communities 1:39:38 | Calling B.S. on Howey Test   QUOTES:   “Crypto as it started building out as an ecosystem, [...] is now the fastest adoption of any technology in all recorded human history.” [7:42]   “If you know that something is being adopted at this speed, and it's a network of money at its core, and you combined infinitesimal fraction of it, so everybody can buy 10% of their net worth, then everybody who takes this opportunity will probably have the biggest opportunity in history to make money.” [10:11]   “I'm screaming from the rooftops saying, you might be cynical, you might think you don't understand it. You might think you can't afford to play in this. But you have to listen, because this is the opportunity.” [14:31]   “Suddenly, NFT's come and community tokens, and your mind is completely blown that this is not just money. It's the entire exchange, transfer and storage of value for the internet. Whole business models are about to change massively, because of what this technology unlocks.” [18:50]   “Generational poverty is a mindset knowledge problem far more than it's a money problem, because they managed to pass on a likelihood of being poor.” Tom Bilyeu [25:46]   “I want people to understand that this is a game and I don't mean that in any sort of derogatory way, but it has rules. And if you understand those rules, there's always an opportunity, especially in moments of disruption.” Tom Bilyeu [27:21]   “Don't over force the narrative. Just be broad, be open and always be learning because we don't know. This is all new, and it's happening at lightning speed.” [34:31]   “You have to know that we don't know the outcome, and anybody who tells you that they know what's going to happen is just a fraud.” [37:00]   “Be paranoid, excessively paranoid, but still confident in that you're right, and you also have to accept the risk of failure.” [39:31]   “This is true kind of distributed power within wealth creation, that people only dream of. This is the system not being against you, but working for you for once.” [1:15:14]   Follow Raoul Pal: Website: https://www.realvision.com/collections/cryptocurrency Twitter: https://twitter.com/RaoulGMI LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/raoul-pal-real-vision/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBH5VZE_Y4F3CMcPIzPEB5A

The mind is such a fascinating thing. As much as science and technology has advanced there is still so much more to learn. When it comes to mindset, controlling your emotions, feeling pain and responding to thoughts both positive and negative, all of these things are within your control, yet most of us spend life as if we were never granted permission to control our own minds. In this episode, four powerhouse forces join together and break down how to upgrade your mindset and gain control over your mind, your thoughts, your behaviors and ultimately your success. Dr. Joe Dispenza, Sadhguru, Jay Shetty, and Tom Bilyeu are lighting the path to show you exactly what you can do today to take over your thoughts and upgrade your mindset and change your life.   Saddhguru’s Full Episode on Impact Theory: https://youtu.be/Gw1I7fqmxmA Jay Shetty’s Full Episode on Impact Theory: https://youtu.be/v1BwF7XkkuM Dr Joe Dispenza’s Full Episode on Impact Theory: https://youtu.be/La9oLLoI5Rc   SHOW NOTES:   0:00 | Introduction Upgrade Your Mindset 0:54 | Control Your Thoughts 4:34 | Change Your Habits 8:05 | Identity & Value Matters 12:00 | Training Your Brain 17:17 | Inspiration Isn’t Enough 19:34 | Control Your Emotions 27:53 | Control Your Negative Voice 35:11 | Get In Tune With Senses 39:49 | Focus On The Pursuit   QUOTES:   “The habit is when you've done something so many times, that your body now knows how to do it better than your mind.” Joe Dispenza [7:09]   “Unleashing human potential, it is not about reaching the peak. It is a trajectory. Because what our life is, is a combination of a certain amount of time and energy.” Sadhguru [13:34]   “My thoughts, my emotions, my energy and my body or my instruments of function. They are not impediments in my life.” Sadhguru [16:01]   “You have to come to realize where you have been blind. Now often those moments, where we realize we’ve been blind are emotionally devastating.” Tom Bilyeu  [18:23]   “I’m going to let that rock hit me in the head because at my feet now is actually a nugget of gold, and I’m going to pick up that nugget of gold and form the lesson that the person is throwing at me.” Tom Bilyeu [21:16]   “The hardest part about change is not making the same choices you did the day before, period. And the moment you decide to make a different choice, get ready because it’s going to feel uncomfortable.” Dr. Joe Dispenza [25:48]   “Pain is a good thing physically because that is your self preservation mechanism. But suffering is something that you do in your mind.” Sadhguru [27:56]   “Because you’re more likely to believe something negative, don’t worry about what’s true. Worry about what empowers you.” [42:08]   “Life is actually embracing polarities. It’s actually about doing a dance, and knowing which way to go at the right time.”  [43:29]   Follow Sadhguru: https://isha.sadhguru.org/us/en Follow Jay Shetty: https://jayshetty.me/ Follow Dr Joe Dispenza: https://drjoedispenza.com/

From the time you open your eyes, your brain is kicking in and most likely living in overdrive. The unfortunate truth is most likely you’re not even aware of all the ways your brain is under attack. Social media is being consumed at an unhealthy rate in both your personal and business life. Even if you have a generally healthy diet, processed foods and chemicals that damage the brain are still sneaking into your body’s system. Is there any wonder why anxiety, stress, and depression, trauma and PTSD are now considered to be the norm? Dr. Daniel Amen is a psychiatrist, brain scan expert and third time guest. In this episode, he’s unleashing the truth about the emotional dragons you are likely dealing with. He gets into some of the most common dragons attacking your emotional brain today, anxious, wounded and inferior to name a few. If you’re low-key feeling attacked on a daily basis, breathe deep and listen in on ways you can start changing your brain and changing your life for the better.   SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Introduction Dr. Daniel Amen 1:10 | Dragons From the Past 4:18 | Balancing the Prefrontal Cortex 7:38 | Knowing Common Dragons 10:59 | Identify Accurate Thinking 14:18 | Strategies To Tame Your Dragons 16:35 | Techniques to Help with Trauma 20:35 | PTSD & Stimulating Trauma 29:57 | Rewriting 12 Steps for Bad Habits 32:00 | Tell Your Brain What You Want 39:09 | Unhealthy Weight to the Brain 45:01 | Brain Health, Anxiety & Diet Link 48:49 | Your Brain on Marijuana   QUOTES: “When you take the emotion out, something's going to replace it, and if you have skill in managing your mind, you'll often look for what's right rather than what's wrong.” [27:35]   “Negative thinking disrupts brain function, but at the same time [...] positive thinking by itself is harmful, we have to be thoughtful. [28:47]   “You have to tell your brain what you want, because it's always listening.” [32:00]   “What do you want in a balanced way? Because if you know, then you're more likely to get it.” [33:22]   “When you become more real, you become more relatable.” [41:07]   “This is not about not having fun.

InsideTracker: Get 25% off their entire store at insidetracker.com/impacttheory Being trilingual is considered to be rather prestigious. Speaking other languages expands your ability to communicate so greatly it adds to the perceived value people will assign to you. But, when you are fluent in Street, Hustling, Broke Money, and Wall Street it becomes the twist no one ever expected. Wallstreet Trapper comes from a troubled past that includes being homeless at 14 and serving 10 years in prison by the age of 16. What he has learned over the years reaches far beyond knowing how to trade stocks and build wealth. His super power is speaking Wall Street in a language that correlates to the same losing game he played on the streets that ended with being shot, in jail or in prison for nearly everyone he knew. His wisdom and willingness to share and make an impact is affecting future generations and bringing Wall Street to the hood, proving that human potential is truly nearly limitless when you put knowledge to use.   SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Violent Beginnings and Prison 8:46 | Finding Out It’s All A Game 14:16 | Real Gangsters Are in Wall Street 18:11 | Break Down Generational Poverty 25:15 | Good Business vs. Good Hustler 28:29 | Know How The Game Works 33:46 | Unapplied Knowledge 36:36 | Bringing Wall Street to the Streets 40:44 | Key To Wealth Is Ownership 46:21 | Power of Knowledge Applied 51:43 | If Investing Isn’t Possible   QUOTES: “Wealthy people do three things. They stop trading time for money. They make the money work for them. And they give as much value to people as they can.” [11:45]   “The reason why people think wealthy people are people with money or sinister, is because that's what you kind of taught in the hood.” [17:09]   “Being at the bottom teaches you to envy people at the top.” [17:53]   “Generational poverty is not about money. It's about mindset.” Tom Bilyeu [18:32]   “People can not want you to succeed all they want, but if you out invest them, they can't stop you.” Tom Bilyeu [19:31]   “One of the things that happens often in the culture of black people is survival mode, you never get a chance to play offense. You're always on defense, one, because of mindset” [22:27]   “A good business is just like a good hustler. A good business has great product. They have great clientele. A great hustler has a great product, he has consistent clientele.” [25:35]   “Once you start understanding the fundamentals, you give yourself power, because you now understand, like you said, you see how the machine works,” [30:22]   “Everybody around me had the same problem. No one represented the solution. So if I don't change something, I'm only going to end up like everybody else.” [32:23]   “I got knowledge, I got information, but I still fell victim to the same shit that everybody around me knew. So therefore, the knowledge that I had wasn't powerful because it wasn't applied.” [34:32]   “It's hard for people to make sacrifice, because you got to now go against and do without some of the things that gives you that momentary gratification.” [37:11]   “The key to building wealth is not how much you can work. You can't work your way to wealth, you got to invest your way there, and all wealthy people, black, white, Asian, Chinese, they own a whole bunch of shit.” [42:31]   “So if I can break down things into struggle language now I'm making the game winnable for everybody. And that's the goal, to make the game winnable for everybody who's bold enough to step into the batting cage.” [50:37]   “Building wealth becomes a revolutionary act because now you start saying I'm going to go against what I was taught.” [52:25]   “The word possible is so powerful. Possible changes the game. Instead of it being impossible, we now say I am possible” [53:09]   “If learning is the catalyst to everybody who's wealthy and successful, I can never be sufficient with what I know.” [54:24]   Follow Wallstreet Trapper: Website: https://www.wallstreettrapper.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/Wallstreet504 YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCR6hXiWOlFWc46qMFMClKHA Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/wall_street_trapper/?hl=en

What captured your attention and made you dream and get excited when you were younger and had no cares or limitations on what was possible or not? Are those things still captivating you now or have you lost sight of them? When you consider what you are now passionate about and excited to accomplish, is there a relation between then and now? This conversation with Ben Greenfield dives into the notion of being pulled toward natural talent and abilities from childhood and Ben’s inclination to allow those things to clue you in on a purpose worth pursuing.

Rickson Gracie is a living legend with over 450 wins in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. As much of a warrior he has become over the years as a 9th degree red belt, he is also kind, spiritual, and connected in mind and body. His story represents what is achievable when you control your mind, your body, and your spirit. He shares the importance of the breath and what it takes to be uncomfortable, seek out discomfort and learn to master and control yourself in that discomfort.

The tools are connection, base, deflection,  strategy, emotional control, the capacity for you to use visualization, and other elements.” [5:44]   “So just being prepared, just being talented is not enough. Just being able to focus and be strategically correct is not enough. I have to have the spirituality to say today is a great day to be in a battle.” [9:04]   “I was accepting death in order to be comfortable in hell.” [9:28]   “I noticed my worst enemy at this point was my own mind, playing tricks on me. It tells me I don't have enough, tells me I was tired, tells me that I’m [gonna lose]. So my mind was completely against my purpose.” [14:24]   “I cannot be just a jiu jitsu teacher, I had to be a psychologist. Because I have to approach a guy who stands insecure in a different way, than approach a guy who's just lazy and completely off.” [36:08]   “The real learning of your breathing system is to learn how to maximize your hyperventilation, to cope with the activities you plan to do.” [39:17]   “If you try to hide the emotions from yourself, and try to show everybody you're okay, you're just making a patch which is not working.

Whether you follow a keto diet, paleo, vegan, or carnivore, the goal for everyone is pretty similar. Get healthy and optimize productivity and energy. Dr. Dominic D’Agostino is back for round two and breaking down everything you need to know about why your biomarkers matter. Dr. D’Agostino reveals the truth behind whether or not carnivore or plant based diets are best for you, how to optimize your biomarkers with fasting, and what you need to know about what role exogenous ketones can play in your optimal health regimen. You’ll want to pay close attention to understand why Covid can potentially become an ongoing problem for young healthy adults and how inflammation is impacting everything.   Don’t miss Dr. D’Agostino’s first episode on Health Theory: https://youtu.be/hu1mF8_QGJE   SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Introduction Dominic D’Agostino 2:10 | Metabolic Health and Covid 5:13 | Metabolic Biomarkers to Track 7:01 | Inflammation Biomarkers 12:01 | Why Fasting Boosts Immune System 14:14 | Benefits of Exogenous Ketones 18:48 | Ketone Biomarker For Burning Fat 23:20 | Hacking Biomarkers With Ketones 32:37 | Healthy vs. Unhealthy Immune Response 38:44 | Healthy People Post Covid Problems 41:28 | Optimize Metabolic Health Now 47:32 | Simplifying Diet, Carbs, Ketones 51:49 | 72 Hour Fasting Benefits   QUOTES: “Having optimal metabolic health in terms of low insulin, low glycemic variability, low glucose overall, and optimizing your cardio metabolic biomarkers is the way to combat this disease.” [3:15]   “In the context of many pathogens, whether it be viral, whether it be bacterial, or if you are dealing with an inflammatory issue, fasting, and a ketogenic diet, which mimics many aspects of fasting can be very beneficial.” [10:42]   “We are omnivores, right. So we are basically hardwired and evolved to eat to be extremely adaptable in what we are eating.” [42:52]   “If you're on a very limited amount of calories, and you want to get as much nutrition as possible, with the least amount of calories, a carnivore diet is the perfect approach.” [45:18]   “What may even be more important than having a diversity of fiber is actually having fermented foods. [They] contribute to the population, can reverse gut dysbiosis and increase the diversity of the gut microbiome” [47:06]   “You can thrive off a carbohydrate based diet but your glycemic variability will correlate to food cravings. So, if you want to go throughout your day and have optimal productivity and feel optimal energy, I found [...] that a low carb approach is the way to go. ” [48:27]   “There are benefits to being in a hyper ketone anemic state, so the ketones then act as an alternative energy source, anti-inflammatory molecule and a hormone which has many beneficial effects.” [49:47]   Follow Dominic D’Agostino: Website: https://ketonutrition.org/about/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqVNHZUXqn1sFvgppi5Zpmg/videos Twitter: https://twitter.com/DominicDAgosti2 Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/keto.nutrition/?hl=en Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ketonutrition.org

Going through different stages of life and relationships is never easy. It’s easy to break down, fall apart or become numb and completely lose yourself along the way. Lisa Bilyeu has experience with navigating change and transitioning from a traditional supportive housewife to being the badass CEO and Co-founder of Impact Theory she now is. In this episode, Lisa and Tom reflect and share the lessons they’ve stumbled through along the way over the last 19 years of marriage to support Lisa’s awakening. Join them as they deep dive into how to get beyond the surface level arguments, discover the value of your frame of reference, and what it truly means to evolve together to be supportive. The trip is bumpy, a little messy, not as graceful as you may imagine or believe, but the way they are honest and committed to each other makes it successful and worthwhile every time.   Check Out Relationship Theory for solid relationship advice at every stage: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtHuUTWVRHUXVjmRrvS8WYg   SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Introduction Lisa Bilyeu 2:36 | Why Love Isn’t Enough 3:24 | The Gap Between Love & Divorce 4:43 | Change Impacting Relationships 6:03 | Not Understanding Each Other 7:16 | Surface Level Arguments 10:15 | Find the Frame of Reference 16:46 | Preparing for Disruptive Changes 22:04 | Self Soothing Through Change 23:06 | Embracing Change Together 30:42 | Evolving Plans Call for Change 31:58 | When Personality Changes 39:02 | Making The Transitions Work 42:02 | Pivot from CEO To Cuddly Wife 45:23 | What You Need vs. Want 48:35 | Power In Being Needed 52:18 | Why You Have To Communicate 57:18 | Emphasis of Feelings 1:01:28 | Own Your Triggers & Insecurities   QUOTES: “The problem with emotions, they make things seem self evidently correct.” Tom Bilyeu [6:40]   “If someone who loves you, and that you love are going that head to head, you don't perceive the situation the same. Therefore, the entire argument should stop instantly, and you should simply say, where's the misperception?” Tom Bilyeu [10:26]   “If you want someone to be there when you're weak, you have to be honest about where you're weak.” Lisa Bilyeu [18:02]   “So the goal was for me to change my life to break out of the mundane.” Lisa Bilyeu [19:35]   “I had to be very aware, and really respectful to the fact that my change is going to impact you.” Lisa Bilyeu [24:16]   “We had the goal, we had the strategy, and in that strategy, I got lost, I lost myself.” Lisa Bilyeu [31:30]   “So as you're going through that transition, the thing for me to fall back on was, I'm in this forever. So now I'm only looking for ways to make it work. I'm not looking for the exit ramp.” Tom Bilyeu [39:02]   “I want you to become whoever you want to become in order to be proud, and I want you to feel that you've become as powerful as you want to become.” Tom Bilyeu [40:31]   “As your business partner, I owe it to you to not be weak, and I owe it to you to stand my ground if I believe in something and you owe it to me to stand your ground.” Lisa Bilyeu [42:23]   “I would never be able to stay with a wife who didn't know how to make me feel powerful… it feels so good… If you're with a man that doesn't know how to make you feel beautiful, you're missing a trick.” Tom Bilyeu [45:23]   “Understand the difference between need and want. Because failing to understand that you have to own yourself, you have to own your own emotions, you have to take control of your life” Tom Bilyeu [46:22]   “On occasions to really be able to turn to them and know they've got your back that when you fucking fall on the floor, they are there to reach out a hand and fucking pull you back up.” Lisa Bilyeu [47:33]   “Do I know that he loves me? And if the answer is yes, then I come back to this conversation from that perspective. If the answer's no, I have a much bigger problem.” Tom Bilyeu [55:04]   “People confuse feeling something for having thought through it, or for knowing that something is true.” Tom Bilyeu [58:30]   “Talking about triggers and our own insecurities and our own things. It is 1,000% on me to work through my own triggers my own insecurities.” Lisa Bilyeu [1:01:29]   “It's really freaking hard though, to say in that moment, ‘hey, I'm being triggered,’ and I know that this trigger doesn't serve me but you're still feeling the emotion” Lisa Bilyeu [1:03:25]   Follow Lisa Bilyeu: Website: https://www.lisabilyeu.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lisabilyeu/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeir7Wbzzfg43c1eL7PSa3g

There are so many technological advances with AI, space travel, NFTs, and a rapidly changing culture with social media, it’s near impossible to just turn ‘off’. Let’s admit it, FOMO is real and it keeps a lot of people connected when they’re not even sure why they’re connected. When was the last time you unplugged and took on a challenge you weren’t sure you’d complete? How long has it been since you’ve sat with yourself in total silence or allowed yourself to just be bored out of your mind? Author and journalist, Michael Easter, joins me today to discuss his journey and share the lessons and insights he’s gained from spending a month in the Arctic surviving. Hunting his own food, carrying heavy loads, and sitting with absolute boredom are just part of his story. As you listen to his story, it is my hope you will consider ways you step out of your comfort zone. There is something very freeing about being able to shake things up and break your routines and habits to improve the quality of your life in unconventional ways. This episode is about facing discomfort and finding new ways to challenge yourself for the better.   Order Michael Easter’s new book, The Comfort Crisis - https://amzn.to/3ihebjB   SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Introduction to Michael Easter 1:05 | The Comfort Crisis Explained 3:02 | Journey to the Arctic 5:03 | Recovering from Alcohol 7:40 | Outside the Comfort Zone 8:55 | Helicopter Parenting Losing Challenges 12:16 | Touching Controversial Topics 14:53 | Challenges Surviving the Arctic 20:11 | Problem Creep 28:05 | Need for Rite of Passage 35:12 | Metaphorical Lions for Passage 41:19 | Comfort Creep & Habits 44:22 | Breaking Routine to be Present 47:45 | Discomfort and Boredom 50:00 | Benefits of Boredom 57:12 | Daily Routine 1:02:11 | Rucking & Human Design 1:14:05 | Killing His 1st Caribou 1:17:16 | Life Cycle & Mortality 1:27:16 | “This Too Shall Pass” 1:30:31 | Want to Live Forever? 1:39:12 | Assigning Meaning to Life 1:42:20 | Rites of Passage Transformation 1:46:12 | Problem Creep Comparison 1:50:34 | Finding Gratitude   QUOTES: “By never putting yourself in a position where you are uncomfortable, whether that is physically or mentally or with, what you think to be true? You're not gonna, you're not gonna learn anything about yourself.” [7:41]   “As humans face fewer and fewer problems in our lives, we don't actually experience fewer problems. We just redefine what a problem is.” [22:50]   “If we never put ourselves in the position of true challenge, then we don't really learn something about ourselves” [40:26]   “The idea of trying to do new things, learn new things that totally shake up a routine. It's interesting, because now all of a sudden, I can't predict the future, and I've got to learn some new stuff, and this is forcing you into presence and focus,” [45:18]   “When you're bored, your brain actually goes inward, starts to sort of ruminate it, you sort of have these different thoughts that are more inward focus” [50:21]   “We don't realize how freaking amazing daily life is. It is unbelievable all this shit that we take for granted in our life every single day. We become unsatisfied with it, we look for the problems.” [1:50:36]   “If you look for the things that are joyful, and good and wonderful, then you're gonna see that and that frame of reference will color how you approach change.” [1:53:36]   Follow Michael Easter: Website: https://eastermichael.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Michael-Easter-225875898170585 Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/michael_easter/?hl=en

Your body handles long nights, limited sleep, and poor diets much easier. The problem is those choices have a cumulative effect. What you eat, how often you eat also impacts the health of your brain. There is a Chinese proverb that says, “the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, and the second best time is now.” It is easy to disregard neurodegenerative diseases as something for older people, but understanding how leaky brain and neurodegeneration begins to happen is better learned now, than waiting till later if you plan to age gracefully. Dr. Jay Lombard may be incognito but his depth of knowledge and expertise in degenerative neurological diseases is astonishing. He breaks down what misfolded proteins are, the relation of infection and immune system processes to neurodegenerative disease and reveals simple ways you can support your immune system on a cellular level. Get ready to break out the ice baths and discover a new reason to relax in the sauna.   Mentioned In this Episode: Everything ALS, https://www.everythingals.org/       Also, check out Dr. Jay Lombard’s book, The Mind of God: https://amzn.to/3iSyPFJ                                                   SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Introduction 3:39 | Linking Infection & Neurological Injuries 6:12 | Blood Vessel Problems 9:21 | Managing Misfolded Proteins 12:36 | Breaking Down Pathological Proteins 16:56 | Immune System, Heat Shock Proteins 18:38 | Periodontal Disease Role in Alzheimer’s 22:01 | Risk Factors & Prevention 24:43 | Regulating Epigenetics 28:56 | Benefit of Fasting for Prevention 32:38 | Ultimate Diet for Prevention 37:32 | Meaning in Hopeless ALS Cases 41:38 | Biology of Meaning & Purpose   QUOTES: “Without perfusion of the brain, you can take any supplement you want. But if you don't have adequate perfusion, you're not going to have a healthy brain” [9:03]   “My goal as a clinician is to help you live with ALS, not die from the condition.” [11:54]   “The closest proximity of infectious diseases to the blood brain barrier, is in periodontal diseases, and that's been strongly associated with Alzheimer's disease.” [18:59]   “Leaky gut is a very important aspect of a functional medicine approach to any condition, but I think the first and foremost point of assessment would be assessing periodontal disease in those patients.” [20:15]   “The same recommendations that we have for cardiovascular disease or equally warranted for prevention of neurological conditions.” [22:40]   “The common thread of long term survivors has been a sense of purpose and faith in the ineffable” [39:20]   “Whatever problems that we have, are to learn from those problems to grow as individuals and to deal with them without running away from the problem itself.” [40:08]   “When we love, we increase our endorphins, which helps us to bear whatever pain that we're experiencing with whatever condition” [41:49]   “The idea that we can infuse medicine with a sense of purpose is, I think, of extraordinary value for everybody to appreciate.” [42:57]   Follow Dr. Jay Lombard: Website: https://www.drjaylombard.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/MindfulNeuro Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drjaylombard/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Dr-Jay-Lombard-385420125187552/

Do you believe that starting a business with nothing is possible? The American Dream is typically defined as the idea that the opportunity of achieving your highest aspirations is possible for anyone willing to put in the work. Jay Samit, laid out his case and experiment for this very idea in his latest book, Future Proofing You. Glenn Stearns, producer and star of the Discovery show, Undercover Billionaire, put himself to the test with $100, no contacts, no help, and just 90 days to build a million dollar business because he deeply believes the American Dream is still alive and possible. Although the playing field is not equal for everyone in every opportunity, it is still possible. Glenn’s story is shocking and relatable for many because his honesty and vulnerability shows that attitude and belief are still king in how you decide to live your life and make moves.   SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Introduction 1:22 | Glenn Stearns’ Story 5:21 | What Is The American Dream? 6:55 | The Pathway To Make It 9:36 | How Glenn Created His Path 11:24 | Be Fearless Asking Questions 14:53 | Focusing On The Lessons 17:20 | Surrounded by Smarter People 20:29 | Cancer Shifts Glenn’s Focus 22:45 | Starting Undercover Billionaire 31:15 | Developing Grit 32:57 | Hardship of Business Lessons 34:45 | Running Against the Crowd 38:12 | Opportunities In Adversity 42:26 | Leading With Vulnerability 45:35 | Making Quick Business Pivots 47:36 | How to be Unreasonable   QUOTES: “It's in the middle of my deepest fog. I had my clearest, you know, kind of aha moment of, I don't want to do this anymore.” [4:46]   “Happiness to me is not about money, it's about the satisfaction that you are doing something larger with your life and feeling very confident in the fact that you are leaving a mark in the world.” [5:39]   “It may be hard [...] but there is a path if you really surround yourself with the right people” [8:07]   “I found that these older, successful people, they want to give back, they want to tell their story, but a lot of people when they're young, think they don't want to talk to me. [...] and it couldn’t be farther from the truth, if you just ask,” [10:47]   “What you gotta do is be good at being you. You don't have to be somebody else. And your transparency or your authenticity, it will reveal itself.” [13:09]   “As life went on, I realized what I thought was horrible became wonderful.” [15:36]   “Life is not easy. When you do get into a hole, it's not about laying there and feeling like the victim. It's about getting up and pulling yourself up out of the hole and figuring it out.” [23:38]   “The ones that are successful, [...] they fight through the pain, they stay later, they work through it, they sacrifice, and then they feel proud because it works.” [29:55]   “I don't like to lead with success. I like to lead with vulnerability” [31:59]   “There’s little things that other people see as problems and it's pretty clear that there's an opportunity right here.” [34:17]   “When everyone dove out the window. I thought, look at all of this opportunity.” [35:56]   “Even more valuable than placing unreasonable demands and pushing people is telling people you believe in them” [50:49]   Follow Glen Stern: Website: https://www.glennstearns.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/GlennStearns LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/glennstearns/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GlennBStearns Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/GlennStearns/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCC-3gGP3f-8D93UimKiaBoQ

Regardless of where you live, societies are feeling the threat against certain freedoms and are fighting back. Humans innately don’t want to be oppressed or censored by larger, more powerful and dominant groups. But exactly how do you define your freedom? Is your freedom tied to your “rights'' or is your freedom independent of that? Sebastian Junger, best selling author, Afghanistan war correspondent and more has authored a new book, Freedom, that will leave you shocked, perplexed and challenged in many ways. In this conversation, he and Tom take a deep dive into freedom, what it means for different societies, how smaller groups are able to give larger groups and armies hell, and are willing to risk their lives for their freedom. Sebastian also shares his 400 mile experience walking through America with a group of friends and reflects on different feelings of freedom. His more recent near death experience will shock you and give you yet another perspective of freedom worth fighting for Order Sebastian Junger’s new book, Freedom: https://amzn.to/3rr8tP1 SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Introduction 1:06 | What is Freedom? 2:49 | Defend Your Freedom 6:04 | Balancing Opposing Sides 8:12 | Root of the Word Freedom 10:51 | 10,000 miles for Defense 15:40 | Society Safe in Numbers 20:19 | Value of Physical Strength 25:12 | Small Fighter Advantage 31:14 | Culture of Honor 41:07 | Agriculture Control 48:04 | Autonomy vs Comfort 53:12 | Social Primate PTSD 58:31 | Importance of Physical Contact 1:03:45 | A Weird 400 Mile Trip 1:06:39 | Seeking Out Challenges 1:08:54 | Freedom Along Gender Lines 1:17:00 | Lessons Raising Girls 1:21:31 | Near Death Experience 1:27:32 | Giving Meaning to Death 1:29:04 | Discussing His Next Book 1:32:34 | Relationship to Fear   QUOTES: “it means that you are not unfairly controlled by a greater power. That you’re self defining, within the limits, of course of the laws that bind all of us.” [1:25]   “That's the eternal human sort of balancing act is to defend themselves but then not wind up being oppressed by their own leaders.” [4:43]   “It's very clear that armed aggression is very adaptive, that it helps the aggressive group survive and thrive.” [8:49]   “The idea of freedom really only refers to the people within your own community.” [9:25]   “Going into a foreign country to defend oneself, puts the military in the whole society on more precarious moral grounds.” [12:29]   “first thing you need to do in order to feel safe is to be part of a group that has a kind of common agreement to defend itself against any threat” [16:17]   “The really interesting thing about humans is that a smaller fighter, or a smaller group, is capable of defeating a larger fighter or a larger group that size and strength are not the ultimate predictor of victory in combat.” [23:21]   “The small guy in the ring does not have to win, they just have to keep not losing long enough for this for the larger entity to run out of resources.” [26:12]   “We have an instinct for autonomy, we also have an instinct for, you know, not being uncomfortable and being safe and and having our ease” [49:30]   “In an affluent society, individuals need others less to survive. And so they're able to live more and more individualistic lives that are more focused on their own experience, and less focused on the experience of others.” [54:20]   “As wealth goes up in a society, broadly, the rates of depression and suicide tend to go up and in poorer societies despite the stresses of poverty, rates of depression and suicide tend to go down.” [54:48]   “Where evolution comes from, is testing new things, and evolving physically and psychologically to adapt to them.” [1:07:42]   “Leadership has to be completely selfless, like you need leaders who will die for you. Anything less than that is not a leader. They're an opportunist.” [1:12:59]   “The meaning that we give to life and the meaning that we give to death. It doesn't say anything really about the nature of existence, it says something about how we, as humans, create a place for ourselves in the world on this crazy planet we live on.” [1:28:00]   “Some feelings that you get in touch with, prevent you from doing something that needs to be done. Like that emotional denial is absolutely crucial when you're doing something that is scary or horrifying.” [1:34:04]   Follow Sebastian Junger: Website: http://www.sebastianjunger.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/sebastianjunger Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/sebastianjunger Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/sebastianjungerofficial/

This is not advice for anyone, just a look at how I’ve applied the plethora of expert advice I’ve received over the past few years. This episode is Health Theory In Action with my own routine:   Key Points to My Routine: 1. Exercise and Meditation are a must. 2. Diet is critical for health.

Falling victim and feeling helpless is not about being weak or strong, but it is about self-awareness and making a mental shift to see what is possible. Stepping back and asking yourself, what is in your control and deciding how you want to respond is critical. Viktor Frankl says in his book, Man’s Search for Meaning, “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” Danny Trejo, an actor and  Hollywood Icon, joins me today to discuss a few of the stories from his new memoir, Trejo. Hearing these stories should remind you that it never matters where you are or how you start in life, it only matters how you decide to respond. Yes it’s hard, yes all excuses and reasons you have to not try and give up are valid, but ultimately the choice is yours to make. Danny’s story is beyond inspiring when you see someone come from a mindset and situation that consumes and devours over 90% of the people engulfed in that life. Which really means, anything is possible and your potential is nearly limitless.   Order Danny Trejo’s new book, Trejo: https://bit.ly/trejolifebook   SHOW NOTES: Boxing Champ | Danny shares his time in San Quentin Prison and being a boxing champ [1:12] No Love | Danny explains growing up with no love in the home born into the Trejo gang [2:28] Danny’s Mentor | Learning life skills from a mentor that was criminal in same situation [3:09] Prison Life | Danny on surviving prison and being tough because of his uncle [5:56] Rehabilitated | Danny’s gratitude for a troubled past and why he’s as grateful as he is now [9:14] Confessions | Danny on why his book is so raw and not sugar coated, it’s the real Trejo [10:19] Redemption | Danny on taking inventory and questioning his behaviors and his mottos [12:38] Taking Out Trash | Why Danny began taking out trash for old neighbors, new reputation [13:56] Service to Others | Danny on why helping others is so important to the way he lives [17:15] Arguments | Danny on the bottomline of arguing, not engaging and the toxicity of it [22:13] Legacy | Danny reveals the love is his family and the legacy that holds value for him [25:51]   QUOTES: “I got a couple of scars from what I wasn't quick enough to duck. But you know what, it really showed me that I didn't want to get hit.” [2:04]   “I've realized about prison, it's easy to be a big fish in a little pond” [6:00]   “There's only two kinds of people in prison, there's predator, and there's prey, and you have to figure I'm gonna be a predator, or you'll be prey.” [6:31]   “Remember that you’re only sick as your secrets” [13:36]     Follow Danny Trejo: Website: https://dannytrejo.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/officialDannyT Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/officialdannytrejo Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/officialdannytrejo/?hl=en

InsideTracker: Get 25% off their entire store at insidetracker.com/impacttheory We’ve all experienced those moments when it feels like the odds are stacked against you in a mighty way. In those moments, your willingness to survive, fight back, and come out on the other side unscathed is critical. But, when the odds are stacked against you in the form of corruption that leads to being wrongly convicted and railroaded into a life sentence in prison, it takes an immense amount of resilience and fortitude to strategically plan a way through a broken unjust system. Isaac Wright, Jr. has experienced this first hand after 7 years imprisoned and 9 additional years under investigation after passing the New Jersey State Bar exam. Isaac speaks to patience, calculated moves, and what it takes to turn anger and bitterness into usable skills that have a real impact.   SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Introduction to Isaac Wright 1:33 | Self Representation And No Believers 3:52 | Having a Voice Most Important 5:07 | Surrounded by Corruption 6:38 | Sentenced but Setting The Next Move 10:45 | Creating New Case Law From Jail 15:44 | Moving Through System As 2 People 18:30 | Managing Emotions In Midst Of Chaos 23:36 | Isaac Defending Self In 3rd Person 29:45 | Running For Mayor of NYC 33:33 | Making Complex Problems Small 44:23 | Breaking Injustice With Minute Details   QUOTES: “Because at that point, I was going to be a slave to somebody else's strategy, somebody else's thought process, and someone else's motives” [2:30]   “The level of corruption that had engulfed me as a young man alone, the book was written before the indictment came down, and that was really my reality.” [5:39]   “My strategy shifted to making sure that when I went to prison, they wasn't going to be able to keep me. And so everything I did was not for the day, everything that I did was for years down the line.” [10:16]   “The more I know about them, and the less they know about me, the better off I am” [13:20]   “One of the things about injustice, if you fight injustice with justice, you wreak havoc upon injustice, it's like water and oil, it's never going to mix” [16:55]   “As a six-year-old kid, I understood the importance of fighting back no matter how much danger you're in.” [21:59]   “I needed to separate myself from what I was going through in order to stay focused and it took me some time, but I literally became a different person. I was representing myself as someone else.” [24:48]   “I always take a granular approach to the things that I'm experiencing in life.” [34:22]   Guest Bio: Isaac Wright Jr. (born January 23, 1962) is an American lawyer in the state of New Jersey. He is a candidate for mayor of New York City in the 2021 New York City mayoral election. Wright was convicted in 1991 after a five-week trial by a 12-person jury of 10 charges involving the sale of cocaine and sentenced to life in prison, but his conviction was overturned in 1997 after litigation brought by him and his lawyer, on the basis that police concealed evidence.   Follow Isaac Wright Jr: Website: https://hunthamlinridley.com/attorneys/isaac-wright-jr/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/isaacwrightjr/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/isaacwrightjr Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/isaacwrightjr/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/IsaacWrightJr

From the way you decide on political issues to the way you tune out dissenting views, and decide against conversations with certain people every choice is backed by some belief in what you consider to be right. Michael Shermer, who I dubbed, the King Skeptic, joins me and discusses why free speech matters most when people don't want to hear it, and the power behind social signaling that helps shed light on some of the breakdowns being seen on a global scale. Michael’s ability to think through strong opposing arguments searching for truth and charitable interpretation and tolerance for others is foundational.   Order Michael Shermer’s book, Giving The Devil His Due: https://amzn.to/2TWVvfq   QUOTES: “much of decision making about truth is made under uncertainty.” [14:31]   “if you want to speak out, because you don't believe this ideology, and you see your neighbor, you know, hauled off and you never see him again, it's like, ‘I'm keeping my mouth shut.’” [33:02]   “if the only answer could be I'm 100% behind it. Or else, I'm not gonna say anything. Well, that's not good for society.”   “so social media is basically taking this natural human propensity to talk about other people. And marrying it to the negativity bias where we notice negative things more than positive things.” [50:26]   “losses hurt twice as much as gains feel good.” [50:46]   “try to separate what I want to be true from what is actually true.” [1:04:01]   “ it's good to remember on commercial television, there's commercials. And so the content is basically whatever it takes to get people to get from one commercial to the next with that clicking away.” [1:07:25]   “if you're going to write a law, you should write it in a way that you don't know which group you're going to be in,” [1:20:03]   “put yourself in the position of you're the lone voice. And do you or do you not want to be heard? Of course, people want to be heard. So free speech is for those with whom we disagree.” [1:34:29]   Follow Michael Shermer: Website: https://michaelshermer.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/michaelshermer Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Michael.Brant.Shermer Podcast: https://www.skeptic.com/michael-shermer-show/

Witness her working through some ideas with me in real time around the culture being the villain versus owning your internal life and consciousness. Dive into some of the deeper ideas Dr Shefali presents starting with recognizing our destructive animal nature.   Order Dr. Shefali’s book, A Radical Awakening: https://www.aradicalawakening.com/   SHOW NOTES: 0:00 | Introduction to Dr. Shefali 2:16 | Layers of Radical Awakening 3:29 | Our Animal Nature & Biological Wiring 8:06 | Our Destructive Nature to Justify 9:42 | Learn To Be Interconnected in Consciousness 13:50 | Chasing Dominance & Delusional Cravings 16:13 | Insecurities & Endless Consumerism 18:51 | Women Not Fitting The Beauty Standard 22:19 | Learning to Accept Yourself 25:32 | Dr. Shefali Explains the Toxic Patriarchy 33:20 | Women Buffering Against the Patriarchal System 36:36 | The Effects of Unconsciousness of Culture 39:57 | Who is Culture?

There's no stop button.” [11:32]   “It's a constant craving, constant insecurity. The fact that we can, doesn't mean we necessarily should.” [16:13]   “when we women succumb to cultural standards based on what culture imposes on us, and we defy our own natural bodies, and we go and mutate our own natural bodies to become that cultural standard, now, we are falling into the patriarchy, and actually genuflecting, actually serving the patriarchy by falling prey to it.” [20:06]   “We are constantly seeking to make everything fit this paradigm of beautiful. And actually that makes us more insecure.” [22:30]   “At the end of the day, self acceptance is your greatest sword. That is what is going to make you the most desirable to yourself and to others. Do not fall for standards of beauty.” [24:00]   “The fact that we have to fight it says that there's something to fight, and there's a system in place that we constantly have to buffer ourselves against “ [34:47]   “It is our inner that is represented on the outside on a global scale” [40:26]   “The scourge of humanity and mental illness is our deep void, our insecurity which is causing us to want to go to Mars and colonize it and go to every corner of the earth and dominate, similarly with our partners. Dominate their every part, every thought, every desire, it comes because we are not whole from within.” [53:40]   Follow Dr. Shefali: Website: https://www.drshefali.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/drshefali Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DrShefaliTsabary Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/doctorshefali/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKzsU94h-PkLBiF5xHo-SjQ

The chaos that can get unleashed on your body from your diet is so important to understand. Having low energy and brain fog is not only frustrating but it feels debilitating as well. I've had my own recent experience with low energy that had me questioning if I had lost my drive. Starting with my diet and realizing pecans were causing my energy to feel so low was shocking for me. Dr. Steven Gundry's latest book, The Energy Paradox, reveals what's taking place on a cellular level that was affecting the body's energy. He joins me to unpack how significant gut health is to your immune system and brain. We get into the chaos leaky gut causes and how you can make better choices to restore your energy. Even if you have a healthy diet, Dr. Gundry, a cardiothoracic surgeon, will surprise you.   Order Dr. Gundry’s new book, The Energy Paradox: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0063005735?tag=imprintweb-20   QUOTES: “believe it or not in the American diet 24 hours a day, we're causing leaky gut we're assaulting our immune system, [...] just from fat, we are just a giant ball of inflammation.” [18:54]   “So if we look at energy production, as literally cars moving down through a freeway, it's no wonder that even though we're eating huge amounts of calories, we have no energy because we literally log jam the mitochondria.” [38:29]   “You've got to eat for your gut microbiome first, and you have to choose foods that they want to eat. And if you do that, they will take care of you.” [40:09]   “We die, we get diseases, by breaks in the wall of our gut that start this process” [41:05]   “If you begin to gradually restrict the time you eat down to about six to eight hours a day, you will develop much better functioning mitochondria, you'll actually have a better gut wall because you're not working on digestion. 24 hours a day. And you're gonna protect your brain.” [41:57]   Guest Bio: Dr. Steven Gundry is an American doctor and author. He is a former cardiac surgeon and currently runs his own clinic, investigating the impact of diet on health. Gundry conducted cardiac surgery research in the 1990s and was a pioneer in infant heart transplant surgery, and is a New York Times best-selling author of The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in "Healthy" Foods That Cause Disease and Weight Gain. He is best known for his disputed claims that lectins, a type of plant protein found in numerous foods, cause inflammation resulting in many modern diseases.   Follow Steven Gundry: Website:https://gundrymd.com/ Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4ODXZL2r3XepieV0uoRjNA Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GundryMD/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/gundrymd/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/DrGundry Podcast: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtxo0nTZjzlKJq5-vJq6s6g

He has been pioneering his way from janitor for Frito-Lay, to a top-level executive, author, and motivational speaker, and it is beyond inspiring. This is why I say action cures all.

I am all in when it comes to building businesses and being the entrepreneur that I am, but when it comes to finances, I am definitely out of my comfort zone. It feels like a movement going on around Bitcoin and crypto, and it would feel so wrong to not bring you, someone, I think you should definitely spend time researching, Michael Saylor. The once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that is accessible to nearly every single person cannot be disregarded out of ignorance. Michael is an MIT graduate and the CEO of Micro-strategy and a self-appointed ambassador for the Bitcoin Movement, whose explanations of what Bitcoin is and why this is so important is one of the best I’ve heard in my own pursuit to better understand cryptocurrency. Listen, research, and do what is best for you, but I urge you to make an informed decision.   SHOW NOTES: Startup | Michael on how MicroStrategy started [1:39] Risks | What growing $16 million with risks was in comparison to no risks [3:53] First Principles | First Principles thinking and being intellectually fearless [11:22] Bitcoin | Michael explains how why bitcoin is 1st engineering in economics [21:50] Currency Value | Breaking down the shift in wealth with devaluing currency [25:51] Inflation | Michael debunks inflation myth, unpacking the real problem [28:50] Hyperinflation | Hyperinflation in bonds, crypto, luxury items [34:26] Cash Is Trash | Michale explains how cash is losing value, and at what rate [38:24] Devaluation Rate | Michael on the challenge of beating currency devaluation [43:03] Currency Conversion | Converting weak currency to stronger assets is best [48:48] What Is Bitcoin | Michael explains why bitcoin is more valuable and desirable [51:20] Crypto Volatility | Bitcoin volatility and seeing how big the problem is [1:05:11] Accessibility | Bitcoin accessibility and solution for rich and poor [1:15:53] Bitcoin Secure | Michael exposes how Bitcoin is a secure asset [1:20:57] Sustainable Energy | Bitcoin, sustainable energy and Elon Musk [1:22:49]     QUOTES: “If you look at the design of a chambered Nautilus, what you see is nature's solution for growth under pressure, and I think that's how technology companies work.” [8:45]   “Bitcoin is the first point in human history where engineering impinged on economics, [...] Bitcoin was the first time when we created a digital monetary asset, a pure digital token on a pure digital network..” [21:56]   “When you yourself can reason from first principles, now you can act at a moment of tremendous uncertainty.” Tom Bilyeu [23:50]   “inflation is varying by time by space and is varying by every item. And if you want to calculate the inflation index, you have to construct a market basket of goods and services and assets that you would want to acquire.” [33:54]   “I have to invest it in a strategy, which is going to appreciate faster than the money is devalued.” [40:07]   “So the discount rate is jumping, which means the value of the cash flows into the future is collapsing.” [48:30]   “Bitcoin is the strongest asset the human race has ever invented, it's like gold with none of the defects of goal.” [51:22]   “The volatility is the price you pay for the performance that you get, and oftentimes, the best investment idea isn't the most comfortable investment idea” [1:05:24]   “It really comes down to what is your aspiration, and that determines your hurdle rate. What you want determines your inflation rate and your inflation rate determines your hurdle rate.” [1:08:14]   “It's very rare that you find it a technology that's the solution to every rich person's problem and every poor person's problem simultaneously.” [1:20:28]   Guest Bio: Mr. Saylor attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on a full Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps scholarship. While at MIT, he was a member of the Theta Delta Chi fraternity, and obtained dual degrees in aeronautics and astronautics as well as science, technology and society.   Follow Michael Saylor: Website: https://www.hope.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/michael_saylor Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/msaylor Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/michael_saylor/

For years scientists have been trying to find a way to slow down the aging process, but Aubrey introduces the idea of repairing the damage that aging does on the body to theoretically restore the body’s biological age to maybe 30 years younger. If you are familiar with the obsession I’ve had with living forever, you already know how much this excites me.   SHOW NOTES: Quality of Life | Aubrey on why a long life depends on the quality and being invested in choice [0:58] Reverse Aging | Why damage repair could be easier than slowing aging & the push back met [4:40] Indefinite Life | Aubrey on why the result of expected life for reversed aging could be indefinite [8:08] Structure Repair | Landing on the idea of repairing structure to restore cellular level function [9:32] Pushback | Aubrey on pushback among scientists about reverse aging in biology [11:17] Body Damage | Aubrey on self-inflicted damage being reversed to same level 30 years prior [14:13] Longevity Escape Velocity | Aubrey on his theory how to reverse biological age 30 years [16:26] Types of Damage | 7 categories of damage that correspond to therapeutic methods of repair [21:18] Stem Cell Therapy | Aubrey explains how stem cells could treat loss of cell problems [22:17] Cancer Treatments | Aubrey gives category of damage due to too many cells [23:26] Senescent Cells | Aubrey explains how these cells can promote cancer [26:53] Mitochondrial Mutations | Aubrey explains problems at the molecular level inside cells [28:53] Cellular Waste | Aubrey breaks down how cellular waste over years impacts old age [33:35] Macular Degeneration | Aubrey explains specific enzymes that could prevent blindness  [35:24] Excretion | Aubrey explains diseases that could be resolved by breaking down waste [37:50] Alzheimer’s | Breaking down amyloid as extracellular waste and modest benefit [39:22] Advancing Therapies | Aubrey gives sobering guess how close effective therapies are [44:07]     QUOTES: “I want to make sure that my choice about how long to live, and, of course, how high quality that life will be, is not progressively taken away from me by aging.” [2:24]   “Old age is something that evolution doesn't care about at all. Evolution only cares about the propagation of genetic information.” [34:41]   “you've got to fix them all. You haven't got to fix any of them perfectly. But you've got to fix them all pretty well.” [43:28]   “what excites me is typically the breakthroughs that would take me half an hour background to describe why it's even important.” [46:16]   Guest Bio: Dr. de Grey is the biomedical gerontologist who devised the SENS platform and established SENS Research Foundation to implement it.

It's not going to be easy, but good things are hard to do and hard things are good to do.” [1:19:26] “it's the quality of the time that you live. That's actually more important than the duration” [1:23:29]   “You can't just say there are a lot of stars out there, and surely they're teaming with life.

After speaking with Ben Bikman, a scientist that studies metabolic disorders caused by insulin resistance, I was shocked to find out that insulin resistance can still develop even in people with seemingly normal glucose levels. Ben’s explanation of the complicated nature of insulin in the body and his unique take on facts that can literally save your life with knowledge are exactly what we need more of.  Whether you consider yourself to be healthy, prediabetic, or struggling with other health issues this episode may give you the insight you need today.

I'm going to get what I need, and so it basically pushes insulin to the side.” [39:01]   “if you try to compare diet to exercise, diet will beat the hell out of exercise, as a variable for insulin resistance.” [42:00]   “it [vegan diet] is a privilege of the elite.

He authored one of my favorite books, Relentless, and is releasing another book that will change your life called, Winning. He redefines winning in a way that embraces the discomfort of sitting with your losses. If you’re in it to win it, the hard truths Tim drops here about embracing the dark side and making sure your mind is stronger than your feelings will leave you supercharged and ready to attack winning with a new perspective.

It's what allows me to be unique because winning wants you to be different.” [9:22]   “You got to love the process. I agree with that, but I also kind of disagree with that because to me, you have to do the process. The process is non-negotiable.” [14:46]   “The process is a non-negotiable thing.

Science fiction has been well documented for its often accurate predictions and a loved being a social curiosity for many. In this episode, Tom is joined by physicist and bestselling science fiction author, David Brin. David exposes how science fiction can be more accurately described as “speculative history” than anything else. Their conversation explores society through history from the Periclean times all the way through modern U.S. politics and what a transparent society top-down, and bottom-up would imply and necessitate.   TASAT project mentioned to check out: http://tasat.ucsd.edu/   SHOW NOTES:   History | Using history to write science fiction and being a good ancestor[1:42] Science Fiction | Writing sci-fi and the historical connection making it speculative history [6:15] Anticipation | How empathy allows anticipation & resilience to increase taking hard hits [9:51] Hollywood Propaganda | David breaks down the notion of improve-ability [16:45] Positive Sum Game | Winning more while helping others win versus zero-sum game [21:14] Self Preventing Prophecy | The propaganda messages saying all humans are bad [27:08] Criticism & Delusion | Being maximally creative using criticism to fix error & delusion  [37:24] Periclean Experiment | The Athenian society crushed to preserve pyramid society [41:38] Death of Politics | Losing friction and negotiation of “adaptation to new times” [44:55] Enlightenment | David on 5 accountability arenas and need for regulated competition [50:15] Experts Under Attack | David explains how media is twisting lies to attack the experts [56:31] Attacking Facts | Davids solution to end the attack on facts that are being ridiculed [1:04:29] American Civil War | David reveals eight phases of civil war in America [1:12:36] Transparent Society | David on potential lateral oppression & need for cultural values [1:16:44] Learning | David reveals his thoughts and approach to learning & exploring curiosity [1:21:16]   QUOTES:   “science fiction should have been called speculative history. Because it speculates about what this story is going to show next” [8:25]   “criticism is the only known antidote to error.” [37:59]   “become maximally creative by reciprocally holding each other accountable.” [40:32]   “together, if we criticize each other, we can cancel each other's delusions, but work together on each other's good ideas. It's a positive-sum game” [41:21]   “...there are attempts to resurrect it [politics], but I'm afraid it's going to have to be resurrected over the smoldering carcass of one of our parties.” [47:13]   “individually we are flawed, but that we can, together, increase the amount of light in the world.” [50:37]   “So the right tends to say ‘yay, competition, boo regulation’. The left tends to say ‘yay regulation, boo competition’ [...] regulated competition is how we got the spectacular success of sports” [52:25]   “the worst thing that's happened to destroy us is also the easiest to solve.” [57:49]   “I tell them [students] that if they spend their time at a university, just studying what they're there to study, they have betrayed their civilization, [...] let alone betrayed themselves.” [1:21:41]   “...but raging systematically against your limitations. I am not a limited being, oh, I am limited time, I'm limited in resources, I'm limited in brainpower, I'm limited in all those things, but I can be interested in more than one thing.”   “It's the attitude that makes you a member of this civilization.

Are you doing the carnivore diet? Vegan? Keto? The choices and variations of every diet plan available is nearly endless. At the heart of the matter, diet consciousness is a question of overall health and better managing and preventing diseases and conditions that hinder your performance and destroy your ability to live a happy and healthy life. In this episode, nephrologist and intermittent fasting expert, Dr. Jason Fung, exposes the overarching importance of understanding your body’s hormonal response to insulin activated by what you eat and the frequency with which you eat.

The U.S. started as a capitalist society and has evolved into a mix of capitalism and socialism. As society and technology evolves, how should our economic system evolve in response? In this episode, Sir Ronald Cohen, “the father of British venture capital” speaks with Tom about the importance of social impact and what impact investing is evolving into and how it can change the social world for the better. Creating systems that support entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and social responsibility of big companies is just the tip of a massive iceberg. Listen in to see how this all ties into our natural desire to evolve and strive for more than just money.   Order Sir Ronald Cohen’s new book, Impact (all proceeds donated to impact charities): https://www.amazon.co.uk/Impact-Reshaping-capitalism-drive-change/dp/1529108055/   SHOW NOTES: Impact Investing | Sir Ronald explains what’s reshaping a new economic system [1:57] Coming to Britain | Sir Ronald reveals how he moved from Egypt and ended in Britain [4:48] Venture Capital | An overview of how venture capitalism came to be and what it is [7:23] Social Impact | Getting an accurate view of a company’s impact not just profits [9:41] Deciding | Sir Ronald gives tips on what to look for evaluating a company’s impact [12:47] Redistributed Wealth | Why redistributed wealth is needed, but it’s not enough [15:30] Poverty Problem | Sir Ronald discusses what’s been missing from solution [18:20] 1800 Companies | The $3 trillion environmental damage being measured [21:28] Capitalism | Sir Ronald breaks down capitalism driven by profit and social impact [28:05] Communism | Setbacks of communism and how increased prosperity redistributed is better  [32:30] Turning Point | Recognizing social problems and having technology to measure impact [34:59] Striving | Sir Ronald introduces human nature to strive for money & quality of life [42:14] Re-Skill | Sir Ronald identifies why opportunities for new skills is part of the system [45:12]   QUOTES: “Because making money at the expense of the environment, or poor people isn't the way to do business. And it doesn't help solve the social and environmental issues we face.” [10:45]   “...we can't let capitalism be driven by profit only. We must have markets trying to achieve profit, and something good for society or the environment. Otherwise, capitalism creates problems.” [28:31]   “I think most company leaders would rather do good and do well, than create problems and make money. But it's the power of consumers and employees and investors together that are going to get them to change their behavior.” [30:40]   “...if you plan everything for people, you kill innovation, and entrepreneurship, with the ability to think out of the box, [and] the freedom to try to execute it.” [33:08]   “Human nature is about striving, striving for survival, striving for success, it’s all about striving, and our system encourages and enables the striving.” [42:28]   “a system like capitalism, which is dynamic, and resilient, and reactive, if it is channeled in the same way, it will be better than a system where the government tries to plan everything from above.” [50:40]   ADDITIONAL RESOURCES: The Harvard Business School Impact-Weighted Account Study (hbsiwa.com): https://www.hbs.edu/impact-weighted-accounts/current-state/Pages/default.aspx FOLLOW SIR RONALD COHEN: Website: https://sirronaldcohen.org/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/sirronniecohen LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/sir-ronald-cohen-437a481b3/

He drops some shocking facts about microbes and even how your past trauma and unresolved emotional scars can impact the health of your gut.

I'm vegan, because the science led me to where I am today.” [11:42]   “with every single dietary choice, we are contributing to the balance that exists within our microbiome.” [18:33]   “our fiber deficiency is causing us to suffer consequences because our gut microbes are not being fed.” [24:56]   “...the microbiome changes in less than 24 hours, whatever dietary choice you make. So literally, the food that you're eating today will have an effect on your microbiome tomorrow.” [37:04]   “If you are suffering from trauma, and abuse history, whether it was physical, sexual, emotional, psychological. If you don't directly address that issue, you will not heal your microbiome. The stress that is driven by that underlying trauma history is an open wound that persists, and it festers until it is addressed.” [41:30]   Follow Dr. Will Bulsiewicz: Website: https://theplantfedgut.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/theguthealthmd/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/theguthealthmd/

In this episode today, one of the toughest and most resilient people you will ever come across joins Tom to share her insight on what it takes to beat the odds and kick ass, failure after failure. Lupita Nyong’o said, “It’s only when you risk failure that you discover things. When you play it safe, you’re not expressing the utmost of your human experience.” The essence of being a total badass, owning your failure and swinging hard to conquer no one but yourself is what Sarah Robb O’Hagan brings to the table.

Go figure it out for yourself because that is what will make you the most satisfied happy person you can be” [30:15]   “I just have worked in predominantly male industries the whole way through, and it just I never even really noticed that I was the only woman at the table very often, I just was like ‘well fuck I’m here’, so I am going to do the best I can and it’s up to me to outperform my peer group whoever they are.”   [32:14]   “Until you’ve been to the depths of the canyon of despair like that’s where the learning and the growth comes from and you come back so much stronger on the other side.

Imagine waking up from a simulated reality where everything you know is interpreted and never truly experienced. Is it possible the reality you’ve known for the last few decades is no reality at all? In this episode, Donald Hoffman returns and takes a deeper dive with Tom to discuss the complexities of consciousness perceived in and out of spacetime. Donald shares the possibilities of consciousness and the infinite nature of theories that exist outside of the virtual reality headset he uses to describe the version of reality you may still be experiencing. Take the plunge into this conversation and challenge the consciousness of what you call your true self.   Order Donald’s latest book, ‘The Case Against Reality’: https://www.amazon.com/Case-Against-Reality-Evolution-Truth/dp/0393254690   SHOW NOTES:   Consciousness | The theory of reality beyond the physical space and time [1:24] Spacetime | Donald relates Grand Theft Auto to understanding reality beyond space time [7:48] Testing Reality | Testable predictions of reality outside of space time and the fundamental nature of consciousness [10:40] Conscious Agents | Donald introduces conscious agents using the Twitter model [16:00] Conscious Illusion | How consciousness is not bound to the laws of physics and is created as needed in a simulation [22:00] Evolution | Why evolutionary theory only exists in space and time within the VR experience [26:34] The Unknown | The dark side of letting go to explore unknown concepts [33:40] Spacetime Simulator | Donald takes us through how consciousness is explored [37:33] Predicted Consciousness | Enjoying experience and predicting the realm of consciousness [49:57] Girdles Down | The Girdles theorem and why everything can not theoretically be known [54:46] A.I. Consciousness | How reductionism makes it possible to give rise to consciousness [1:03:54] Created Consciousness | Donald explains the creation of consciousness from portals [1:10:29] God Hypothesis | Donald’s hypothesis of science of God as agent of consciousness [1:15:05] Asymptotic behavior | Long term behaviors from far away that use spacetime theory [1:26:07] Alien Intelligence | Donald discusses alien intelligence and being in a simulator [1:31:22] Living vs NonLiving | Being unplugged from VR game and notion of self [1:33:53] Meditation | Donald shares how meditating to let go and have complete silence transforms his thoughts [1:46:20]   QUOTES:   “ Science has not yet been studying objective reality outside of our space time virtual reality, that from an evolutionary point of view, was just evolved as a way for us to play the game of life, and stay alive long enough to reproduce, not to show us the truth.” [8:06]   “That's what spacetime is. Spacetime, the sun and the moon, physical objects, everything that we see inside of space and time is just our visualization tool. The reality we're interacting with is nothing like the visualization tool. There's nothing like space and time. It's a whole network of interacting conscious agents outside of space time, a vast social network. And we've made the rookie mistake of assuming that our headset, VR, our visualization tool, is the final reality.” [17:55]   “no matter how much consciousness explores its possibilities, it could never come to the end of its own possibilities. And so it's in a never ending self exploration.” [31:22]   “And right now we're sort of stuck on this little headset, three dimensions, small amount of color that we can see and so forth. Just, we thought it was the whole world. No, it's just it's a little headset.” [33:08]   “...we’re chasing that consciousness itself is only about exploring new possibilities of experience.” [35:55]   “So the reason I'm doing this is because I can't even imagine a specific color that I've never seen before, I can't imagine in four dimensions. In other words, I take it as a given that I'm deeply, deeply limited in my imagination. And I need all the tools I can get to help me step outside of my headset and try to guess, the unfathomable outside of there.” [52:47]   “There seems to be reward for absolute silence, no concept whatsoever, and out absolute precision on the other hand. And there's no reward for sloppy thinking in the middle.” [1:51:57]   “don't hold on to anything dogmatically right as that's the sort of the point explore and then be the first to kill off the things that you know really don't make sense don't don't hold on to them so it's an anti dogmatic point of view” [1:54:37]   FOLLOW (NAME): Website:http://www.cogsci.uci.edu/~ddhoff/ Email: ddhoff@uci.edu Twitter: https://twitter.com/donalddhoffman?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/donalddhoffman/

Are you dealing with mental fog most days, crashing in the afternoons and just blaming it on lack of sleep or stress? Cognitive decline is known to begin as early as your 30s and has become the accepted norm with aging, yet many of us don’t even recognize it at its onset. In this episode, international expert in neurodegenerative diseases, Dr. Dale Bredesen, talks with Tom about the reversibility of cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease. While Alzheimer’s disease is well known as a progressive disease impacting seniors, too many people are missing the opportunity to course correct and reverse the effects of cognitive decline leading to Alzheimer’s disease in their younger years. Dr. Bredesen explains simple ways for you to improve these conditions, avoid them altogether, and enhance your mental cognition. He discusses the importance of reducing toxins and exposes four factors that are largely responsible for the decline in optimal cognitive performance.   Pre-order Dr. Bredesen’s Book “The First Survivors of Alzheimer’s” https://www.amazon.com/First-Survivors-Alzheimers-Patients-Recovered/dp/0593192427    SHOW NOTES: Alzheimer’s |  Relationship between cognitive optimization and Alzheimer’s [1:17] Cognitive Supply & Demand | Factors that affect the brain’s plasticity network [2:38] Brain Assaults | Dr. Bredesen reveals the kind of assaults causing injury to your brain [6:10] Amyloid Plaque | Dr. Bredesen explains the role of amyloid plaque in Alzheimer’s [7:20] Brain Shrinkage | Dr. Bredesen explains the problem with the brain chronically shrinking [9:23] Alzheimer’s Subtypes | What’s destroying your brain and subtypes of Alzeheimer’s [10:10] Leaky Gut | The relationship between leaky gut, inflammation and cognitive decline [10:59] Insulin | Dr. Bredesen explains insulin resistance associated to cognitive decline [11:55] Alzheimer’s Survivors | Dr. Bredesen’s upcoming book about survivors of Alzheimer’s [15:53] Enhanced Cognition | Dr. Bredesen on enhancing normal cognition [17:01] Detox | Ways to get rid of toxins and who benefits from detoxing [18:15] How to Get Alzheimer’s | Dr. Bredesen discuss ways to give yourself Alzheimer's [22:28] Toxins Balanced | Dr. Bredesen explains the dynamic balance of toxins in your body.

All of these things are contributing to a lesser than optimal outcome.” [17:30]   “We are all living in a toxic world, that’s the problem [...] detoxification is not just for sick people” [21:08]   “Many of us will avoid Alzheimer’s, but we’re still going to have suboptimal cognition.”  [24:24]   “You have a dynamic balance.

Diets need to change drastically…” [7:15] “All good diets are lacking ultra-processed foods. The reason I think they´re evil because of the way they increase inflammation.” [12:12]   “We did a research study where we said: When we look at all the literature, what are the top nutrients that are most important for brain health and helping depression? Twelve nutrients stand out. So we asked ourselves: What foods have the most of these 12 nutrients? Aside from plants, 3 of the top 5 foods were seafood.” [26:00]   “I have treated people with every type of mental illness, and it´s actually what gives me hope. It´s what gives me strength and resilience. I have seen people who have it so hard with what happens in their minds, and to see them just do amazing things: Start companies, have families, whatever it is, makes me very hopeful.“ [42:57]   FOLLOW DR.

This is why we have this epidemic.” [6:16]   “When you’re in a ketonic state, you don’t feel hunger and as a consequence it helps people that are trying to do short-term weight loss.

Cause meat isn’t a highly-fractionated, pleasure trap food… The problem with meat is it’s very concentrated, if you eat too much of it, you can have problems.” [40:28]   FOLLOW DR.

Like a calm before the storm, our society may be on the brink of irreversible and incomprehensible consequences. All objective truth may soon be removed from society and be replaced with a post-modernist approach where truth simply cannot exist. Still, what is the truth? What is the undeniable evolutionary science behind men and women in today’s society? On this episode of Conversations with Tom, Tom is joined by Evolutionary Biologist Heather Heying to discuss such matters and more as they explore today’s society and the undeniable biological differences between men and women, how each sex has a unique and powerful role in societies, and why in today’s modern age, culture wars has eroded trust in objective truth. They discuss today’s social movements and the harmful consequences of letting them go too far, the differences between men and women in society, how hunter-gatherer societies may be key to understanding our roles, the origin of men and women being divided in society by role and purpose, the dangers we face if we continue to deny our differences, why the culture war movements are power hungry, how to have a successful workplace environment and team, and the risks we face as a society if we overprotect our children and refuse to let them take risks and make their own decisions.   SHOW NOTES:   Controversy | Heather reveals why talking about the sexes is now a hot button issue.

[30:20] Useful | Heather discusses the productive friction between how the sexes work together. [37:41] Denial | Heather shares the dangers of denying the differences between the sexes.

[52:52] Teams | Heather and Tom discuss team dynamics, gender roles, and why all that matters is being able to get it done. [58:08] Choices | Heather discusses if certain traits, choices, or passions are actually ‘better.’ [1:07:09] Fulfillment | Heather shares the fulfillment she feels from presenting challenging and intellectual discussions with diverse groups of people from all walks of life. [1:09:55] Parenting | Heather reveals the consequences of sheltering children from problems. [1:15:36] Risks | Heather reveals the rules she has for her kids so they take on risks. [1:23:58] Locked Down | Heather discusses the consequences of limiting our movement. [1:30:21] Getting Better | Heather reveals why you must expose your ideas to feedback. [1:35:20] Seeking Truth | Heather discusses the fragile echo-chamber of modern day science and academics.

[2:00:37] Closing | Tom closes today’s episode and shares where you can continue to follow Heather’s work and teachings. [2:07:27]   QUOTES:   “…is it true that an entirely male power structure has a tendency to go off the rails in a particular way in which we’re well familiar from like all of history? Yeah, of course, right? Would an all-female power structure go off the rails in a particular way that we’re less familiar with from history? A hundred-percent. I don’t want to see that anymore than I want to see, you know, another World War II…” [15:30]   “…what you said earlier is just exactly right and I’ve never heard anyone say it before which is that when you have been on all-male teams, it’s easier, and when you have been on mixed-sex teams, it’s more productive and I just, you know, so hope that that anecdote holds across everything. It’s what I’m sort of banking on…” [57:23]   “The thing is, yes we get less flexible as we age, for sure. Our brains get less plastic, we get more, you know, canalized into our particular ways of thinking but continuing to expose ourselves to more and more experiences that are different from anything we imagined is how to keep that flexibility…” [1:29:20]   FOLLOW HEATHER:   Website: heatherheying.com Twitter: twitter.com/HeatherEHeying LinkedIn: linkedin.com/in/heathereheying Podcast: youtube.com/channel/UCi5N_uAqApEUIlg32QzkPlg Patreon: patreon.com/heatherheying

It’s something most, if not all, of us accept as just a normal part of life. Yet, what if we’ve been approaching ‘aging’ wrong this entire time? What if there was a way to not only slow down our aging process but put an end to aging altogether? On this episode of Health Theory, Tom Bilyeu is joined by anti-aging, regenerative, and age-reversal medical expert Dr. Alex Paziotopoulos to discuss such matters and more as they explore how you can put a halt to your body’s aging process and begin turning back your biological clock for good. They discuss the modern science behind age reversing, the importance of sleep on your brain, the ideal lifestyle you should be aiming for, why a meat-based diet may be aging you, why your world is ‘too sterile,’ the differences between good and bed stress, the supplements you can take to prevent aging, and the practical steps you can take today to begin slowing down how you age.   SHOW NOTES:   Anti-Aging | Dr. Paziotopoulos reveals the science behind today’s age reversing. [0:51] Sleep | Dr. Paziotopoulos reveals how your lack of sleep might be aging you. [7:05] During Sleep | Dr. Paziotopoulos reveals what occurs in your brain when sleeping. [8:50] Lifestyle | Dr. Paziotopoulos reveals the optimal things you can do to prevent aging. [10:20] Diets | Dr. Paziotopoulos reveals the differences between meat or plant-based diets.

[41:37]   QUOTES:   “We want to go beyond what nature created for us and the environment. We want to optimize. The average person isn’t even close to their genetic potential. So, we want to go beyond your genetic potential.” [13:26]   “…you’re not a human being, you’re a conglomerate of all of these organisms together. So you have, you know, hundreds of millions of different species just living in you. And so when we look at hunter-gatherer populations and what their microbiome looks like versus us, we’re completely sterile compared to them.” [21:24]   “There’s not a system of the body that we’re not looking at and that we’re not trying to optimize because it all works together. You can’t just say, “I’ll optimize your heart.” There’s no way, it’s impossible, right? Everything’s connected. And so, we have to look at all the systems and see where we’re at.” [41:09] FOLLOW DR.
