8 Key Lessons from the Ultralearning Experiment
Last year, I conducted an experiment in Ultralearning that I hoped would help me achieve a lifelong dream of mine of writing and releasing an album. I’m happy to say it was far more successful than I ever imagined it would be! As I mentioned in the initial Ultralearning podcast episode, the hope for the 3-month experiment was that it would accelerate my progress towards my goal and make the process more enjoyable. Well, it did all that and more… I ended up finishing a song during that 3-month experiment and I can’t believe it but I just released that single today! Not only did I write a song during the experiment, I continued writing music since then and I now have enough material for an album! Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought this experiment would help me make so much progress but it has! In today’s podcast episode, I go through everything I learned and explain why the Ultralearning Experiment helped me push past the self-doubt and self-destructive habits that have plagued me in the past. I also describe the new routines the experiment helped me develop and why those new habits have allowed me accomplish more than I ever have before! Highlights * How to get your brain ready (and why it’s essential for making progress) * The best way to make developing new habits easier * What you should focus on and why * How to be original and creative * Why you should make your project “real” (even if it makes you feel silly) * When it’s worth spending more money instead of less * Why you should expect to encounter the “gap” and how to get over it

Dr. DJ Moran | The 2 Step Process for Facing Any Challenge in Your Life and Coming Out On Top
In today’s episode, we cover Acceptance Commitment Therapy with Dr. DJ Moran. Dr. Moran has a Ph.D. in Psychology, is the founder of Pickslyde Consulting and the MidAmerican Psychological Institute, and has helped thousands of people and hundreds of companies develop the skills for keeping vital commitments.    Nothing will hit as hard as life will, so what can we do to better handle those hits and come back stronger and better equipped to handle the future while also striving to be the best versions of ourselves?   What to Listen For What is Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) and how can it help you deal with all the challenges and setbacks life throws at us? What is psychological flexibility and why do we all need it so life doesn’t crush us in difficult moments? What are the biggest challenges when it comes to changing our behavior and how can ACT help you overcome them so you can live the life you want? What questions do you want to ask yourself to figure out what changes you need to make and can make so you can be the best version of yourself? What can you do to take control of your life and lead a life based on your values rather than someone else’s values or society’s values? What is the Mindful Action Plan and how can you use it to implement ACT in your life to make the behavioral changes you want? What is counter-conditioning and how can you use it to embrace discomfort and “negative” emotions so you can start leading the life you want?   A full range of human emotions is necessary to lead a fulfilling life, but many of us associate certain emotions with negativity, thus leading us to avoid or suppress feeling those emotions. Consequently, we then avoid the events or activities that lead to us feeling those emotions when those events and activities could be exactly what we need in order to grow as individuals, professionals, friends, lovers, etc. It’s important to be able to accept all of your emotions and develop a comfortable relationship with them and yourself so you can lead the life you want.   A Word From Our Sponsors Share your vulnerabilities, victories, and questions in our 17,000-member private Facebook group at theartofcharm.com/challenge.

How to Trade Expectations for Appreciation | A Fireside Chat with Tony and Sage Robbins (Part 2)
Tony and Sage sit down for an intimate fireside chat to unpack the stress many of us feel around the holidays. We all have rules and beliefs about how things are supposed to be or how people are supposed to be. And when they do not meet our expectations, we suffer. The holidays can hold a magnifying glass over these expectations, whether that be family dynamics, budgets, or how well the turkey turned out. Listen as Tony and Sage suggest a new approach: To replace expectation with appreciation, to lead with gratitude and thanksgiving instead of worry, fear or anger. Sage eloquently calls us to take pause on the list-making and to-do’s associated with getting ready for the holidays. And Tony provides us with an invaluable tool for how to get more joy out of each individual moment and experience. It’s time to make a decision about what kind of holiday you want to have, to bring a new level of enjoyment for yourself and to be a blessing to those you love most. “What’s wrong is always available, so is what’s right.” - Tony Robbins About The Fireside Chat Series: In the 1930s and 40s, a time when the country was struggling even more than it is today, we had an amazing leader named FDR. He began doing evening radio programs called “fireside chats,” designed to communicate directly with the American people. At that time, 90% of people in the U.S at that time had a radio. Today, 96% of people have a cell phone and nearly all have internet access. Instead of being unified and watching all the same things, and having a collective experience, now we're all kind of separated. And we can see division in our culture. We desperately need a form of unity, a form of connection, more humanity and more kindness in the world. Tony and Sage thought to bring back this time-honored tradition of a fireside chat as a means of unity and compassion. We’re entering the winter season, drawing inward into our homes and into ourselves, reflecting on the hardships and blessings alike this unique year has brought. In this three-part series, you will hear them dispel their hopes and dreams for you this holiday season, as well as share some of Tony’s powerful tools and strategies to not only survive the coming months, but to step up and thrive.

Why Men Seldom Succeed Before Age 40 (DQ Solo)
#189. Register for Design the Next Year of Your Life 2021 (for men): TheGreatManWithin.com Join the Men’s Only Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheGreatManWithin Books Referenced: Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill Multi-Orgasmic Man by Mantak Chia The Enlightened Sex Manual by David Deida Why Men Seldom Succeed Before Age 40 Napoleon Hill had a theory that men seldom succeeded before the age of 40 because they dissipated their energy through over-indulgence of sex. Here are some excerpts on his thinking as written in Think and Grow Rich: “I discovered, from the analysis of over 25,000 people, that men who succeed in an outstanding way, seldom do so before the age of forty.” “This study disclosed the fact that the major reason why the majority of men who succeed do not begin to do so before the age of forty to fifty, is their tendency to dissipate their energies through the over-indulgence in physical expression of the emotion of sex.” “The majority of men never learn that the urge of sex has other possibilities, which far transcend mere physical expression.” Here’s my take: From my studies on sexual energy – leaning on the likes of Mantak Chia and David Deida – it’s not so much about the over-indulgence in sex, rather it’s the over-indulgence of ejaculation. As these teachers espouse, ejaculation is the releasing of vital life force that could otherwise be transmuted into love, creativity and the driving force behind your purpose. As Deida says in his book The Enlightened Sex Manual: “One of the main effects of too-frequent ejaculation us a very subtle spiritual dullness.” I can’t help but agree with aspects of all of these teachings. As a man who spent most of his live over-indulging in sexual pursuits and ejaculating far too often, I felt that spiritual dullness and dilution of my life force. In fact, it was during an 11-month abstinence period from sex, masturbation and ejaculation when I decided to change my entire life – leaving a 15-year career in corporate to live my life’s mission of helping men achieve their potential. All that extra non-ejaculated energy needed somewhere to go…so here I am. If this is speaking to you, I encourage you to listen to today’s episode of The Great Man Within Podcast. -DQ

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.

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.
