Which Kind Will You Be?
3 min

"There are two types of people in this world: The kind whose success makes them better and the kind whose success makes them worse. Nero and Marcus Aurelius began to be groomed for power at roughly the same age. One lusted for the throne, the other cried the day he found out he was selected for it. One murdered his step-brother, the other elevated his step-brother to an equal, making him the first co-emperor. One chased frivolity and pleasure, the other took to his job with seriousness and a sense of responsibility. One helped other people, while the other thought only of himself. "

Ryan asks all of us "What type of successful person will you be?" on today's Daily Stoic Podcast.

Managing Natural Tensions: The balance of value
Episode #117 // Every organisation inherently has a number of natural tensions between different groups and functions - finance vs marketing; sales vs operations; operations vs asset management; IT and… virtually everyone! Rather than trying to eliminate these tensions, leaders should concentrate on using them to get better outcomes. It’s through nurturing and managing natural tensions that you’ll find a balance - this will improve your decision-making, and ultimately create the greatest value for your organisation. There are no black-and-white answers to this question, but there are some practical principles and philosophies you can employ. In this episode, I provide some useful tips for managing natural tensions in order to improve the value outcomes of your team.  // We are on a mission to hit 1 million listens by the 31st December 2020. To help us to reach this goal, and impact even more leaders just like you who would benefit from the strategies and tools that Marty covers in the podcast, please share the podcast with your network. You can also subscribe, follow, rate and review the podcast, that will help more leaders find us when they’re searching for a new leadership podcast to binge on. If we hit our goal, we will be running a completely free live virtual leadership event in February 2021, and we would love for you to be there!

Love is the Way: Hope for Ourselves and Others – Bishop Michael B. Curry with Dave Asprey : 764
In this special Thanksgiving episode of Bulletproof Radio, I wanted to bring things back to center with a focus on love and community after the wild year of change and stress we’ve had. Giving and receiving love is one of the most important ways we can be better humans. “Beyond our national identities and loyalties, beyond our political sympathies and ideologies, beyond our religious and spiritual convictions and commitments, there is a universal hunger at the heart of every human being: to love and to be loved,” says Bishop Michael B. Curry. “It connects all people of faith, hope, and good will.” I’m so pleased to be talking to Bishop Curry about this. He’s been the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church since 2015 and is the first African-American to lead the denomination. He’s recognized as one of the most popular preachers in the English language. He’s served parish ministries for more than 40 years. Throughout his ministry, he’s been an advocate for human rights and active in issues of social justice, reconciliation, speaking out on immigration policy and marriage equality. He maintains a national preaching and teaching ministry and has authored five books. His newest book, “Love is the Way: Holding on to Hope in Troubling Times,” touches on the three kinds of love: eros, which is romantic; philia, the fraternal, brotherly love; and agape, unselfish, sacrificial love that seeks the well-being of others. “They are all related,” Bishop Curry says. “They all have the same source.” I learned a new way of looking at love during my conversation with Bishop Curry. I hope you do, too. Happy Thanksgiving to you and those you love. Enjoy! And get more resources at https://blog.daveasprey.com/category/podcasts/

David Meltzer | How to Buy Happiness by Shopping for the RIGHT Things
In today’s episode, we cover the myth about success with David Meltzer. David is the Co-founder of Sports 1 Marketing and formerly served as CEO of the renowned Leigh Steinberg Sports & Entertainment agency, which was the inspiration for the movie Jerry Maguire.   While “money can’t buy happiness” is a phrase most people in today’s world are familiar with, many of us still chase after money as if it will buy us happiness - so what is it about this truth we can’t seem to let go of and what can you do every day to lead a more fulfilling life without money?   What to Listen For What is the biggest myth about success?  What does it mean to “shop for the right things” and why is that phrase so important when you start attaining financial success? How do you start practicing gratitude when you feel like you have nothing to be grateful for? What are the 3 votes you make each day that influence whether or not you can live a successful, fulfilling life? What 3 concepts can you internalize that will give you motivation on a daily basis? What 5 daily practices can you start implementing today to help you achieve your dreams?   We grow up being told that money doesn’t buy happiness and yet we are surrounded and bombarded with messages about the crap we need to buy in order to make our lives better (aka to make us happier). And many of us are raised in a culture where we expect to give/receive material gifts every year (Christmas, birthdays, etc) because they’ll bring us joy (aka happiness). We have to be able to recognize these signals and then we must be willing to take steps to live outside of them - aware of them, but dismissive of how silly they are.   A Word From Our Sponsors Share your vulnerabilities, victories, and questions in our 17,000-member private Facebook group at theartofcharm.com/challenge.

In order to grow, you need failure. Understand and accept failure as a part of life. We often experience that learning is more effective in failure than in success because failure teaches us what works and what does not. When we embrace our strengths or limitations – we become better. People are often so afraid they’ll fail at something that they don’t try. Don’t be one of those people. Everyone has failed at something in his or her life, but not everyone tries again and again. World hard every day to reach your goals and you will. Keep going and you will find success. Subscribe!

#138 - Lauren Miller Rogen and Richard Isaacson, M.D.: Alzheimer’s disease prevention—patient and doctor perspectives
Peter is joined by writer, director, actress, and founder of HFC, Lauren Miller Rogen, and previous podcast guest and director of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Clinic at Weill Cornell Medicine and New York-Presbyterian, Dr. Richard Isaacson. In this episode, Lauren tells the heartbreaking story of watching members of her family succumb to Alzheimer’s disease (AD) which motivated her to proactively address her own risk with Richard’s guidance. Richard discusses the various genetic and lifestyle factors that influence the risk of AD and uses Lauren’s unique situation to explain how he diagnoses patients and personalizes care. They go through Lauren’s protocol of preventative measures that have already produced marked results, and end with the uplifting message that one’s genetic predisposition does not seal one's fate. We discuss: * Lauren’s deep family history of Alzheimer’s disease (3:10); * The influence of genetics, epigenetics, and lifestyle on Alzheimer’s disease risk (13:45); * Lauren’s mother’s disease progression and the enormous stress it causes for family members (24:30); * The various manifestations of Alzheimer’s disease depending on the location of pathology (29:30); * The three stages of Alzheimer's disease (34:45); * Richard’s deep exploration into Lauren’s family history revealing clues about a diagnosis and a roadmap to successful disease mitigation (39:15); * How exercise reduces Alzheimer’s disease risk, and the different risk between males and females (58:00); * Why knowing your APOE status is important, and whether certain people should be wearier of head trauma (1:08:00); * How Richard uses genetic testing to personalize care (1:14:45); * The “ABCs” of Alzheimer’s prevention, lifestyle interventions, and Lauren’s personal protocol for reducing her risk (1:21:45); * Unique treatment for people with the ApoE4 variant (1:36:30); * Richard’s mixed opinion on CBD and THC as a tool for disease prevention (1:40:00); * Cognitive testing procedures, and how Lauren’s tests furthered her commitment to her disease prevention protocol (1:41:45); * The relevance of sense of smell and hearing in Alzheimer’s disease risk and prevention (1:50:00); * The emotional benefit of knowing you have control over your mental and physical health (1:57:30); * HFC—a charitable organization founded by Lauren and Seth (2:00:15); and * More.
