Conversations with Tom | Rangan Chatterjee on How You Find Out Who You Really Are

Mar 5, 2020 01:58:37

Description:

We have over-complicated health and wellness. And we may be emphasizing food and exercise too much when stress, touch and sex are just as important. Dr. Rangan Chatterjee knows that people are needlessly suffering, and change is quite possible. Not only is it possible, but it may be much simpler than most people realize. On this episode of Conversations with Tom, Rangan and Tom Bilyeu discuss how crucially important human touch is, and talk extensively about how harmful stress is. Dr. Chatterjee even claims that stress is a bigger part of digestive disorders than food is. This is not the only controversial claim he makes, but he has both the research and the life experience treating patients to back up what he says. After watching this episode you may very well conclude that it’s the simple things that we need to get right: human touch, intimacy, and relaxation. The complexity and the tech can wait.

Mar 5, 2020 35:32

Description:

Sports Illustrated calls Trevor Moawad “the world’s best brain trainer.” With an accolade like that, and a history of working with the world’s elite athletes, you might expect him to have some sort of fancy, highly-complex system. If so, your expectations would be wrong. Moawad keeps it simple and straight-forward, focusing on changing what people say, what they consume, and how they form habits. On this episode of Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu, Trevor Moawad discusses a realistic alternative to the trendy idea of positive thinking, explains the connection between what you say out loud and how your life turns out, and proves conclusively that, contrary to popular belief, your past does not predict your future.

SHOW NOTES:

 

Negative thinking is bad, but positive thinking doesn’t work all the time either [2:42]

It’s much easier to change what you say than it is to change what you think [7:07]

Everyone has messed up thoughts, but you don’t have to say it out loud [13:36]

Trevor explains why hope matters [23:21]

Trevor shares the impact he wants to have on the world [30:12]

 

QUOTES:

 

“If someone says something out loud, it’s ten times more powerful than if they think it.” [7:07]

 

“Negativity is a multiple of four to seven times more powerful than positivity. So think about that. If I say something out loud, it’s 10x. If it’s negative, it’s four to seven times more powerful. So when I say negative things out loud, it’s 40 to 70 times more likely that that will happen--or cause a result that won’t be good for me--than if I just didn’t say anything.” [7:21]

 

“If you say stupid sh*t out loud ultimately you’re predicting and perpetuating exactly what you don’t want to have happen.” [13:42]

 

“The past is real. But the only thing that makes it predictive is if my behavior stays the same.” [16:00]

QUOTES:

“If you can't then understand your own physiology to a level where you can fix that without needing more technology, you're gonna fail. That's a short game. And I want you to play the long game.” [5:49]

 

“The first thing would be simply becoming aware of what's happening. And the easiest way to do that is to decrease the amount of external stimuli coming in, and just being with your own self  as much as possible” [4:13]

 

“And what we know very clearly is the plasticity within the muscle, n other words, its ability to change its composition, changes really rapidly. So if you haven't strength trained on anything heavy in weeks, decades, I'm not surprised you have a hard time regulating that 'cause that's what it's primarily there for.” [18:08]

 

“There's a difference between variation in our training and randomization. Randomization is not a good idea. There's no plan. There's no purpose.” [18:37]

 

“What is magic for sleep is consistency for the most part. What I don't want people to be is slightly consistently underslept.” [22:04]

 

“I don't want people to be fragile. Not handling any unplanned stress. If you can't handle any unplanned stress in any aspect of your life and a little bit of stress, causes a big problem.” [29:56]

 

“Some people got a good draw and made bad choices. Some people got a really, really tough draw. Okay. What are you gonna do about it? You still have an option. You still kind of have some control but you have to make that choice.” [46:43]

[37:50] Patrick reveals the impact he wants to have on the world. [38:57]   QUOTES: “I also believe firmly that events, conversations, certain individuals can completely say something that can change your life forever.” [14:40]   “One of the scariest things about life is a question. The scary question can shake a soul up 'cause no one's asked that question from you. So for me, the transition for somebody who'd want to change it and get clarity is actually asking questions.” [15:38]   “If you don't ask the questions of what you want to do next, the world is gonna put you in the box of what you have to do next because they're determining who you need to be. And you are rising up to their expectations 'cause you're not asking the questions yourself.” [15:50]   “Clarity to me is stemmed from you being able to sit down and ask those tough questions that piss you off, that irritate you, that make you emotional, that you cry over, that you reflect, that makes you want to do research, that makes you follow up, that makes you sit down and say, "I don't really know. I've never thought about this before." And that goes deeper, and deeper, and deeper.” [16:08]   “Clarity gives confidence.” [16:55]   “Identity is you asking the questions until eventually you get to a point that you get to the deeper part of who do you want to be? What life do you want to live? And why do you want to live this life? Why is it important to you? Why is it worth you putting through all these hours? Why would you want to do that?” [22:20]   “I think declaring the intention serves a purpose. I think when you go out there and you say, "This is what I'm gonna be doing, this is where I'm gonna be at," you officially have the world holding you accountable.” [23:10]   “Haters highlight your weaknesses.” [29:48]   “The more you tell the world how to manage expectations dealing with you and what to anticipate, you actually minimize a lot of the noise.” [33:33]   “The solution for you to become free is you gotta question every single thing” [36:50]   FOLLOW PATRICK BET-DAVID: WEBSITE - https://bit.ly/30XeIfU FACEBOOK - https://bit.ly/2HMSy8p TWITTER - https://bit.ly/2HOxNJu INSTAGRAM - https://bit.ly/2KkGQUu LINKEDIN - https://bit.ly/2wztb3u   BOOKS MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: The 25 Laws to Doing the Impossible - https://amzn.to/2QFPjCD [2:44] Meditations - https://amzn.to/2allL7m [35:56] Principles - https://amzn.to/2HMSnKh [35:58]   VIDEOS MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: The Life of an Entrepreneur - https://bit.ly/1ShhMss [2:06]   COMPANIES MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: PHP - https://bit.ly/2WnfrIR [1:27] Valuetainment - https://bit.ly/1IybV1h [2:17]

Wim Hof, also known as The Iceman, is the holder of over 26 world records. He has climbed the majority of Mt. Everest wearing nothing but shorts and shoes.

Dec 11, 2018 57:20

Description:

David Goggins has earned himself the reputation of “toughest man alive” and it’s a reputation well deserved. He is the former world record holder for the most pull-ups done in 24 hours. He once ran 205 miles in 39 hours without stopping. And he’s completed more than 60 ultra-endurance events in his career. He started all this after telling himself that he was the weakest man alive.

Why people don’t start the journey of becoming who they’re capable of becoming (Hint: most people are content to pose as someone else) [24:41]

QUOTES:
“When you care more about how someone’s judging you - you’re gonna stay right there. There’s no forward momentum.” [23:08]

“You gain knowledge through suffering. And on the other end of suffering is a world that very few have ever seen - it’s a beautiful world because that’s where you find yourself.” [28:16]

“Mediocrity is contagious.” [29:18]

“I viewed myself as the weakest person on the planet earth - my goal in life was to in my mind believe I’m the hardest man alive.” [35:00]

“Life is one big head game and once you learn how to play the motherfucking head game, it’s not a game anymore at all. You can start living your life.” [48:06]

QUOTES:

“But if you ask a human being to share with you the moments in life that they're most grateful for, all of those moments often deal with inner states. It's falling in love, it's carrying your first child in your arm. It's the joy of accomplishing your first big win. And all of these, all of these are states of happiness, states of joy, states of human connectivity.” [4:04]

“When you get a clear vision of the business you want to create, of the lifestyle you want to create, you move towards that faster.” [19:03]

“One of the biggest ways we transform is when we connect with others. And we have shared meanings when we support each other. When you share your vision of the world and I share mine or when we challenge each other's ideas, but it all comes by bringing people together.” [22:58]

QUOTES:

“Pain is truly the only thing that's ever gotten me to change. So, it's been my growth accelerator as well as my reminder of when I've gone astray.” [3:38]

"If we can develop that, the wherewithal to have the awareness around the circumstances surrounding whatever event it is, that you can leverage that crack in the door, that door cracking open, or that line in the sand to make some significant changes.” [12:40]

“I can tell you that I'm happiest and most alive when I'm butting up against the outer edges of my pain threshold” [14:40]

“I think that most people set the wrong goals for themselves, and it's because they're disconnected from who they are. They are living someone else's life, or they're living a life that's so disconnected from who they are that ... And they're living a life that they didn't consciously choose for themselves, and because they don't have a healthy relationship with themselves, with their interior life, it becomes very difficult to set the right goals.” [24:01]

“It's easy to say, I'm an outlier. But, I'm not. I really am not anything special. I had the courage and the audacity to pursue these things. And, in so doing, I have realized that human potential is malleable. We're all sitting atop massive reservoirs of untapped potential and ability.” [35:35]

QUOTES:


“So when people told us all the reasons that we couldn't do it, sometimes those reasons come across so powerfully they sound like facts. But they're just opinions. And it's really important to remember that distinction. That they are only opinions.” [10:42]

“And the only thing that matters is your reaction to whatever comes up. Because you know in life, in business, stuff's going to come up at some point. You just don't know what it is. And it's all about your reaction, how you deal with that....” [20:05]

“I always think that the things that will make you thrive in business, are exactly the same things that will make you thrive in a family.” [25:15]

“I've got friends who have got boats who were going to go sailing around the world at the same time as we were. They're still in England, they haven't left because they are waiting for perfect. It doesn't exist. Figure out what are the really big things, get on the way, and then trust yourself, you'll be able to figure out those things as you go along.” [26:46]

“The thing that I've learnt, whenever I get to a point where I don't know the answer, I feel the frustration building up in me, map coming down off the wall, that sort of stuff. I now know that's a trigger, I've got to go and learn something.” [31:46]

"The separation of talent and skill is one of the greatest misunderstood concepts for people who are trying to excel, who have dreams, who want to do things. Talent you have naturally. Skill is only developed by hours and hours and hours of beating on your craft." - Will Smith

“if you're running away from pain and that's your driver, great, use it. Actually, feel the pain more. Don't ignore it and live a life of status quo or even a life of struggle because of that. In fact, let the pain sink in and let it be your driver and then once you get past those, then other things kick in that could be your motivator…” [3:23]

“What stands between us and where we want to go is never what we think it is. It's not the economy, it's not the president. It's not that somebody already dominated the health food industry or dominated Facebook advertising or dominated TV advertising or there's no room left. It's never that. It's always the story we tell ourselves and why we can't achieve that.” [11:03]

“I don't think we should drive for money. I think we should drive to be a better version of ourselves.” [30:31]

QUOTES:
“And that's the thing about when you achieve success, it may not match your picture. It may not match your vision of what you thought, but you have to be flexible if you want to flow with the universe because the universe takes its cue from your intention and your actions but it's always going to interpret your dream the way it sees fit, not always the way you envisioned it. ” [4:02]

 

“You have to be willing to be open, to be humble and to be willing to acknowledge that you're in a process, you're on a journey.” [7:10]

 

“I think self-love is all about pushing yourself, demanding of yourself that you stretch and reach your boundaries.” [13:11]

 

“I think I've learned as much from my failures as I have from my successes perhaps more.” [15:25]

 

“Passion is the antidote to self-doubt because when you're in your passion space, you don't have time to have all that negative talk invade your thought process. When you're in your passion, you're leaning forward in the world. When you're in your passion space, you're actually looking for a way to be effective. You see yourself as more of a tool, more of an advocate for whatever it is that your play. Passion is the antidote for everything, for laziness, for self-doubt. It's passion that gets me through the day.” [16:48]

“The joy I get that I could create some of the vocabulary for others to express themselves, that gives me a connectedness” [17:58]

“Just find joy in what you do for the sake of it. And then recognize how you're being shaped in the process, and hopefully, you become a better man through it.” [27:04]

#78 Alex Banayan on How to Hack Your Way Into Success at Anything

Jun 26, 2018 56:57

Description:

Alex Banayan dropped out of college to hunt down and ask legends like Bill Gates, Steven Spielberg, Maya Angelou and more how they accomplished their dreams so he could share it with the world. These stories as told in the best-selling book, The Third Door, reframe what most consider “secrets” to success into human journeys of failure and persistence. Business author and one of the youngest VC’s ever Alex Banayan shares the wisdom from his and many others journeys on this episode of Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu.

SHOW NOTES:

Alex breaks down The Third Door mentality and how he used it to fund his dream. [2:37]

Alex on how external voices and rejection factored into his journey. [9:23]

Alex tells the power and importance of friendship in his success. [17:54]

Alex talks about fear within uncertainty and how to work with it instead of against it. [24:06]

Alex shares Steven Spielberg’s incredible story of turning rejection into a new path. [28:35]

Alex shares the story of Qi Lu and how he redefined the word “luck”. [34:43]

Alex touches on insecurities and developing self-awareness. [42:40]

Alex reveals the impact he wants to have on the world. [47:05]

 

QUOTES:

“The difference between fearlessness and courage is that fearlessness is jumping off of the cliff without thinking. Courage is acknowledging your fear, analyzing the consequences, and deciding you still care so much about it, you're gonna take one step forward anyway.” [4:37]

 

“You will never win against the voices in your head if you try to argue with them. What I've learned is that if you, instead of focusing on the voices and the fears, you focus on the desires.” [12:04]

 

“And I think no matter what your dream is, if you're able to find a larger purpose, a larger impact that lives beyond you, all of a sudden all of your bullshit that's holding you down becomes a lot less relevant.” [12:17]

 

“I've learned that insecurities will never leave you, just like with fear. They're a natural part of the human condition. So your goal shouldn't be to rid yourself of insecurities. It should be to become so aware of them that they could be yammering away and you go, "Oh, that's just the insecurity.” [44:25]

“The second you speak something out loud, it doesn't have power over you anymore.” [45:15]

 

“When you change what someone believes is possible, you change what becomes possible.” [49:24]

#66 Isaac Lidsky on How to Take Control of Your Reality

Apr 3, 2018 46:27

Description:

Isaac Lidsky has been a child actor, Supreme Court litigator, entrepreneur, best-selling author, and just happens to be blind. After losing his sight to a rare degenerative disease in his early years he learned the power of not just simply seeing the world for what it is, but mentally manifesting what you want it to be and executing. Isaac shares what lessons can be found in the unknown on this episode of Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu.

QUOTES:

 

"The value in this Eyes Wide Open vision that I speak of is, it's not about science, it's not about blindness, it's about the lessons we can take in really taking control over the reality we want for ourselves. Literally choosing who you want to be and how you want to live your life in any moment." [10:50]

 

"You can live a life of happenstance, of reaction, or you can take some time to figure out how you want to spend your time, who you want to be, who you want to be as a parent, who you want to be as a spouse, and on and on and on. You can try to be that person and you can try to live that life." [21:55]

 

"Every moment of your life is a choice. How do you want to spend that moment? Who do you want to be? It is not the circumstances we confront that dictate the lives we experience." [25:55]
