#115 - Sean Croxton | Changing Your Mindset & Relationship with Money
1744
Sean Croxton is the Host of The Quote of The Day Show podcast, Co-Founder of Jerfbar, teacher at Money Mind Academy and overall amazing human being. In 2007, he stumbled upon this thing called YouTube where he created one of the first health-based video channels on the internet, sharing seemingly complicated matters of health in a way that everyone could understand. Soon thereafter in 2008, he launched his first podcast Underground Wellness Radio, on which he interviewed authors and experts in the alternative health space. The program ran for 7 years with over 10 million downloads and 348 episodes about all things real food and functional medicine with a sprinkle of personal development on the side. During his seven years with Underground Wellness (UW), Sean penned his still-popular Dark Side of Fat Loss ebook, started the JERF (Just Eat Real Food) movement, and hosted seven online summit events, including The Thyroid Sessions, Digestion Sessions, and The Depression Sessions. In late 2015, Sean walked away from his thriving UW brand to create a new movement in the world of personal development and the science of mind. The nerd in him couldn’t stop wondering what makes people do what they do and not do the things they really want to do. He has become an ardent student of the mind, studying the timeless works of Neville Goddard, Henry Thomas Hamblin, Napoleon Hill, Ernest Holmes, and Bob Proctor. His goal is to blend the vintage works of these writers with the more modern research in the field of neurology, and to teach one million people how to use their minds to give and get everything they want in life. Sean is the host of The Sean Croxton Sessions, one of the internet’s most popular Self-Help podcasts. He is enrolled as a student in the Proctor Gallagher Consultant program as well as the Robbin-Madanes Training course. - http://seancroxton.com/ - Quote of the Day Show https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-quote-of-the-day-show/id1163094296?mt=2&ls=1 Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram, LinkedIn or via email mark@vudream.com LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

How to Build Confidence & Eliminate Social Anxiety w/ Ellen Hendriksen
388
Do you want to understand how to build confidence? What about eliminating your social anxiety? Listen to this short clip from clinical psychologist, Ellen Hendriksen. Ellen Hendriksen is a clinical psychologist who helps millions calm their anxiety and be their authentic selves through her award-winning Savvy Psychologist podcast, which has been downloaded over 5 million times, and at Boston University’s Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders (CARD). Her scientifically-based, zero-judgment approach has been featured in New York Magazine, Tonic, Psychology Today, Scientific American, Huffington Post, Business Insider, Quiet Revolution, and many other media outlets. The Savvy Psychologist was picked as a Best New Podcast of 2014 on iTunes and was Otto Radio’s Best Healthcare Podcast of 2016. Dr. Hendriksen earned her Ph.D. at UCLA and completed her training at Harvard Medical School. She lives in the Boston area with her family. “This book is also a groundbreaking road map to finally being your true, authentic self.” ―Susan Cain, New York Times, USA Today and nationally bestselling author of Quiet Up to 40% of people consider themselves shy. You might say you’re introverted or awkward, or that you're fine around friends but just can't speak up in a meeting or at a party. Maybe you're usually confident but have recently moved or started a new job, only to feel isolated and unsure. If you get nervous in social situations―meeting your partner's friends, public speaking, standing awkwardly in the elevator with your boss―you've probably been told, “Just be yourself!” But that's easier said than done―especially if you're prone to social anxiety. Weaving together cutting-edge science, concrete tips, and the compelling stories of real people who have risen above their social anxiety, Dr. Ellen Hendriksen proposes a groundbreaking idea: you already have everything you need to succeed in any unfamiliar social situation. As someone who lives with social anxiety, Dr. Hendriksen has devoted her career to helping her clients overcome the same obstacles she has. With familiarity, humor, and authority, Dr. Hendriksen takes the reader through the roots of social anxiety and why it endures, how we can rewire our brains through our behavior, and―at long last―exactly how to quiet your Inner Critic, the pesky voice that whispers, "Everyone will judge you." Using her techniques to develop confidence, think through the buzz of anxiety, and feel comfortable in any situation, you can finally be your true, authentic self. - https://www.ellenhendriksen.com/ Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram, Twitter or via email mark@vudream.com Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

#114 - Erik Davis | Technology’s Hidden Metaphysical Dimension (Techgnosis)
2354
Erik Davis is an author, podcaster, award-winning journalist, and popular speaker based in San Francisco. How does our fascination with technology intersect with the religious imagination? Erik Davis argues that while the realms of the digital and the spiritual may seem worlds apart, esoteric and religious impulses have in fact always permeated (and sometimes inspired) technological communication. Davis uncovers startling connections between such seemingly disparate topics as electricity and alchemy; online roleplaying games and religious and occult practices; virtual reality and gnostic mythology; programming languages and Kabbalah. The final chapters address the apocalyptic dreams that haunt technology, providing vital historical context as well as new ways to think about a future defined by the mutant intermingling of mind and machine, nightmare, and fantasy. Exploring the mystical impulses behind our obsession with information technology, TechGnosis presents a fascinating and passionately original perspective on technoculture. Today we often assume that the triumph of technological rationality has condemned the spiritual imagination to the trash heap of history. But as Erik Davis explains, religious impulses and magical dreams permeate the history of technology. Ranging from the printing press to the telegraph, from radio to the Internet, David peels away the utilitarian shell of technology to reveal the mystical and millennialist fervor that attends each new communications breakthrough. As he unveils the hidden history of techno-mysticism, Davis shows how the religious imagination continues to feed the utopian dreams, apocalyptic visions, and alien obsessions that populate today's technological unconscious. In these pages, Davis offers a lucid, playful, and astonishingly erudite journey through our hyper-mediated environment. Anyone grappling with the morphing boundaries and terminal speed of our present moment will want to take the ride. "TechGnosis is a dazzling, sweeping look at the metaphysical urges underlying our technological progress. From exploring the Singularity to positioning man as the “spiritual cyborg”, Erik Davis reveals our technological subconscious and writes with a flair that crackles the mind. I LOVE this book." —Jason Silva - https://techgnosis.com/ Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram, LinkedIn or via email mark@vudream.com LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

FLOW #41 - Why Humans 2.0 Will Be The World's #1 Podcast
663
You're listening to the 41st episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! Today's episode is on why I believe that Humans 2.0 will be the world's top podcast. Why? Because it has nothing to do with me...it has to do with you. I experienced a quantum shift in my life because I started reading books by the greatest teachers. It's not about getting advice...it's about hearing other Human's talk about their own insecurities, fears, doubts and understanding that they are just like you. In our minds, we have this illusion that the world's most successful people are just different. They are confident, powerful, wealthy, because of their circumstances. I'm here to tell you that it's not true. EVERYONE has thoughts of anxiety & depression. The difference is...they take action despite their thoughts, feelings, and emotions. I want the Humans 2.0 podcast to be a conduit for that and for YOU to understand the intelligence paradigm and create change in your own life. Why? Because when you change your life...the people around you take notice and start changing themselves as well. That's how we change the world. Change doesn't come from governments, corporations, nations, etc...it comes from individuals just like you and I. Please let me know how you like these daily FLOW episodes.

Inspiration | Dogma - Living with the Results of Other People's Thinking
238
Friend: hey mark, don’t you know 75% Of businesses fail? Me: okay Friend: hey mark, Don’t you know that 60% of Americans are Obese and have a chronic illness? Me: Okay Friend: Hey Mark, don't you know that 1 in 10 Americans are addicted to something Me. Okay Me: I don't understand what does that have to do with me? You see. There's a reason why Humans have been able to survive for so long and become the dominant species on this planet. In the past, the goal was always to survive. Just slide by. Make it to tomorrow. If you can avoid the black plague, or hide from the neighboring invading tribe. You survived. We are the descendents of the most neurotic, anxious, fearful human beings that existed. “"There's a lot of things that evolved for good reason about how we behave. The thing you're trying to avoid with saber tooth tigers or social banishment, the opposite is true if you want to invent something new, write, make a presentation, etc.” - Seth Godin and this is the reality of living in 2018 and beyond…we are living in the physically safest & greatest time in human history. We're all born into this world with a dream. A destiny, a date, a unique problem to solve here during our time on planet Earth. These opinions, the things you hear from the people around you....is from the overlapping language of generations and generations of just making it by, surviving. As David Goggins says - most people have opinions about something they've never done. Because it's easier to judge than actually independently think. If you're not average...average people will pull you down to their level. After interviewing hundreds of successful people I've learned... They're not smarter, more talented, have better luck or anything like that They take action despite their own thoughts, feelings and emotions. The key is to take that same survival instinct we were born with and go on the offense to get what we want in life.

#113 - Isaac Lidsky | Master the Reality You Create for Yourself
1733
Isaac Lidsky is an American corporate speaker, author and entrepreneur. Before losing his sight he played Weasel on NBC's Saved by the Bell: The New Class. He is the only blind person to serve as a law clerk for the U.S. Supreme Court. Lidsky graduated from Harvard at 19 with an honors degree in mathematics and computer science. He graduated from Harvard Law School magna cum laude. As a U.S. Justice Department lawyer, Lidsky argued more than a dozen appeals in federal court on behalf of the United States and never lost a case. He founded a nonprofit organization to fund the development of treatments for blinding diseases and within 5 years grew it to a dozen cities nationwide and more than $5 million. The technology company he founded sold for $230 million. In 2016 Lidsky set out to share with others his empowering approach to living and leading, and he was promptly recognized as a visionary thought leader. Penguin Random House acquired for publication his first book, Eyes Wide Open, and it hit the shelves as a New York Times best seller in March 2017. TED invited Lidsky to present a mainstage TED Talk at TEDSUMMIT 2016 in Banff, Canada, and it was viewed more than a million times in 20 days. Lidsky now speaks to and works with organizations around the world. He has been recognized for his achievements dozens of times and his leadership is routinely sought after. He is an advisor to a $1+ billion tech “unicorn.” He is a member of the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO), the world’s premier peer network of chief executives and business leaders, and was tapped to lead the Orlando Chapter and to serve on the Regional Executive Committee for the Southeast U.S. and Caribbean. He was asked to join the Young Entrepreneur Council. He has been appointed to State leadership positions by the Governor of Florida and to a federal position by a U.S. Senator. He sits on the Board of the Florida Hospital For Children. He was named 1 of 4 Temple Bar Scholars by the United Kingdom’s Inns of Court and brought to London for a month-long idea exchange with UK Supreme Court Justices and leading barristers. Perhaps most striking, Lidsky is only 37, and he is blind. Born with Retinitis Pigmentosa, a rare degenerative disease of the retina, from age 12 to 25 he slowly lost his sight. As his bio makes clear, neither his youth nor his blindness have limited him, however. This is true in his professional life and personal life alike. Isaac married Dorothy, the love of his life, in June 2004. In September 2010 she gave birth to their triplets, Lily Louise, Phineas and Thaddeus—collectively, “The Tripskys”—and in December 2015 baby Clementine completed the family. The six Lidskys live in Windermere, Florida. http://www.lidsky.com/ Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram, LinkedIn or via email mark@vudream.com LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

#111 - Dr. Don Vaughn | Neurohacking: Rewiring Your Brain & Future of Intelligence
2339
Dr. Don Vaughn is an academic neuroscientist, futurist, international public speaker, and consultant. His foci include neuroscience, human behavior, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. Since graduating from Stanford, Dr. Vaughn’s research has been featured in TIME magazine, profiled by Cadillac, and received over a million views in his TEDx talk “neurohacking: rewiring your brain”. He has been an opinion leader for a wide range of news outlets from The Wall Street Journal to NBC News. Dr. Vaughn is adjunct faculty at Santa Clara University where he teaches neuroscience and a postdoctoral fellow at UCLA where he leads a workshop on modern statistics. Don promotes engaging and accessible science. Neurohacking is the colloquial term for (usually personal or 'DIY') neuroengineering. It is a form of biohacking (qv) focusing on the brain and CNS. Strictly speaking it is any method of manipulating or interfering with the structure and/or function of neurons for improvement or repair. Artificial Intelligence is the theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages. - http://www.donvaughn.com/ Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram, LinkedIn or via email mark@vudream.com Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

FLOW #38 - 13 Tips for Hosting a Top Charts Podcast
703
You're listening to the 38th episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! Today's episode is on what I've learned over the past months that led me to host a top charts podcast. 
 1. Unless you are talented and have mentors, don’t expect anyone to listen for the next 6-18 months.
 
 2. Embrace intellectual humility and admit when you are wrong / don’t know what you’re talking about. 
 3. Don’t equate your self-worth with the number of downloads your podcast has. 
 4.  If somebody asks to be on your show, connect with them via a call first and make sure it’s a right fit. Don't be afraid to say NO! 
 5. Video interviews are much better for human to human contact and putting up on YouTube and promoting after. 
 6. Listen from the perspective of your audience. 
 7. Before the Interview, tell the guest this is not live and can be edited after. 
 8. After the interview ask your guest who would be a good fit for this podcast. 
 9. Heavily research your guest and establish a chronological timeline. 
 10.  Success is ALWAYS in the Follow-up (99% of people don’t do) 
 11. Treat your guests like normal human beings (high-profile guests) 
 12.  Don’t invite a guest just to get them on your show for the name (cross-name ranking) 
 13.  It takes time and effort to build the podcast of your dreams….that’s why most people quit. 
 I get messages every day from individuals and companies asking me for advice and to consult their podcasting ventures! Hope this helps :)  Please let me know how you like these daily FLOW episodes.

Inspiration | The Entire Game is You Vs. You
259
This inspirational clip is based on November 8th, 2016, the day my entire life changed. I came to the realization that Life is You Vs. You and I hope this audio articulates my realization accross to your perceptual appartus! “It was always me versus the world, until I found it's me versus me." - Kendrick Lamar As humans we have the unbelievable ability to blame our circumstances, our parents, our country, our boss, loans, debt, mortgages, the government, race, where you came from…everything but ourselves. but how could this be…. "Most of us have two lives. the life we live and the unlived life within us. Between the two stands resistance." - Steven Pressfield you are just one decision away from living a completely different life…and that’s because there’s a chance that the life you are living right now…isn’t even yours. If you don’t control your mind, a narrative, corporations, people around you will control it for you. and some people don’t even care or are even aware…. Here’s what we end up doing…we bandaid the bridge between our real internal world within our external world with things, possessions, people, chemicals, and even thought patterns… and at some subconscious level…in the abyss and cracks of our minds….our brain knows the truth... As Jay Shetty says - “the words we’re using now like woke / awaken it all means we’re consciously asleep…therefore all of these people creating are trying to wake each other up…and we all know if you don’t wake up in the morning the alarm has to get louder, and louder, and louder, and louder.” Now, this awareness is raging below you. Many people feel this and embody resentment, hatred, greed, envy, destruction, malevolence, and it’s because they’re not accepting themselves. A parent, teacher, friend, might’ve said “don’t do that” or “play it safe” these thoughts build inside our minds and end up forming our psychology when we get older… and I think the only way to overcome this… is to submit…. Surrender…. Give in…. Annihilate your Ego’s current perspective Most of us are hanging by a thread…we want to control the world….because we don’t have faith.. and this is the main problem… it’s not the world..its you.. You’re looking at life through the lens of a fixed and outdated perspective…our brains are always trying to fight reality.. "If you walked in on your friend sitting on the couch trying to jam a square peg into a round hole. You'd say stop it you're crazy. That's what your mind does all day long....your mind is trying to change the past.” - Ira Israel Get in the present moment. Start living your life on your own terms. and Maybe just maybe you can have an extraordinary life worth living…not just for you but for all of those around you.

Moran Cerf is a professor of neuroscience and business at the Kellogg School of Management. Prior to his academic career, professor Cerf worked as a hacker for nearly a decade, breaking into leading financial and government institutes to test and improve their security. His hacking background has led him to later pursue non-traditional ways to investigate the brain, using methods and techniques that benefit from heavy computational skills and novel research tools. Notably, he has been working with patients undergoing brain-surgery where he studies behavior, emotion, decision making and dreams by directly recording the activity of individual neurons using electrodes implanted in the patients' brain. He holds multiple patents and his work has been published in wide-circulation academic journals such as Nature, as well as popular science journals such as Scientific American Mind, Wired, New Scientist and more. Additionally, his work has been portrayed in numerous media outlets such as Time, CNN, BBC, Bloomberg, NPR, MSNBC and dozens of others. Additionally, he is the Alfred P. Sloan screenwriting Professor at the American Film Institute. He has been featured in venues such as the Venice Art Biennial and China’s Art, Science and Technology conference, and has contributed to magazines such as Forbes, The Atlantic, Inc. and others.

Preview: Losing Your Vision w/ NYT Bestselling Author - Isaac Lidsky
197
Stay tuned for the entire podcast episode with Isaac Lidsky coming soon! Lidsky graduated from Harvard at 19 with an honors degree in mathematics and computer science. He graduated from Harvard Law School magna cum laude. As a U.S. Justice Department lawyer, Lidsky argued more than a dozen appeals in federal court on behalf of the United States and never lost a case. He founded a nonprofit organization to fund the development of treatments for blinding diseases and within 5 years grew it to a dozen cities nationwide and more than $5 million. The technology company he founded sold for $230 million. In 2016 Lidsky set out to share with others his empowering approach to living and leading, and he was promptly recognized as a visionary thought leader. Penguin Random House acquired for publication his first book, Eyes Wide Open, and it hit the shelves as a New York Times best seller in March 2017. TED invited Lidsky to present a mainstage TED Talk at TEDSUMMIT 2016 in Banff, Canada, and it was viewed more than a million times in 20 days. Lidsky now speaks to and works with organizations around the world. He has been recognized for his achievements dozens of times and his leadership is routinely sought after. He is an advisor to a $1+ billion tech “unicorn.” He is a member of the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO), the world’s premier peer network of chief executives and business leaders, and was tapped to lead the Orlando Chapter and to serve on the Regional Executive Committee for the Southeast U.S. and Caribbean. He was asked to join the Young Entrepreneur Council. He has been appointed to State leadership positions by the Governor of Florida and to a federal position by a U.S. Senator. He sits on the Board of the Florida Hospital For Children. He was named 1 of 4 Temple Bar Scholars by the United Kingdom’s Inns of Court and brought to London for a month-long idea exchange with UK Supreme Court Justices and leading barristers. Perhaps most striking, Lidsky is only 37, and he is blind. Born with Retinitis Pigmentosa, a rare degenerative disease of the retina, from age 12 to 25 he slowly lost his sight. As his bio makes clear, neither his youth nor his blindness have limited him, however. This is true in his professional life and personal life alike. Isaac married Dorothy, the love of his life, in June 2004. In September 2010 she gave birth to their triplets, Lily Louise, Phineas and Thaddeus—collectively, “The Tripskys”—and in December 2015 baby Clementine completed the family. The six Lidskys live in Windermere, Florida.

#107 - Adam Kokesh | 2020 Presidential Candidate Runs on Dissolving the Worst Obsolete System - Politics
2943
Adam Kokesh is running for President of the United States in 2020 on a platform of an orderly, peaceful, and responsible dissolution of the U.S. Federal Government. Adam and I discuss today's technological information revolution and cultural emergence to continuously make the institutions of government less & less relevant in our lives. What do self-driving cars & augmented reality contact lens have in common? Less centralized interaction and more transparency and trust in a future world. In 2007, Kokesh joined Iraq Veterans Against the War and helped bring the organization to national prominence as its most visible leader. He first came to national attention for holding up a score card during Alberto Gonzales' testimony to Congress regarding the dismissal of U.S. Attorneys keeping track of how many times he said, "I don't recall." His photograph appeared in many national newspapers and resulted in dozens of TV interviews. He was later to become the story himself when prosecuted unlawfully by the Marine Corps (while he was in the inactive reserves) for staging a street theater protest that included a mock combat patrol, "to bring a small piece of the reality of war home to Washington, DC." Adam was an active supporter of Ron Paul and would eventually come to found and lead Veterans for Ron Paul, organizing a stunning march on the White House for vets to turn their back on Obama and raise awareness about military suicide. He was invited to speak at the 2008 Revolution March in DC organized by grassroots Ron Paul supporters and his speech that day is what put him on the map as a promising representative of the freedom movement. While in jail in Washington, DC in 2013, he began writing FREEDOM!, now considered a "bible for voluntaryism." The book is in its fourth printing and has been downloaded over 2 million times. With the platform he has built for himself, he was able to successfully self-publish and make it available for free in every digital format possible including audiobook. In a jailhouse interview with Fox 5 DC during that time, Kokesh announced his plans to run for President of the United States in 2020 on a platform of an orderly, peaceful, and responsible dissolution of the U.S. Federal Government. FREEDOM! was officially endorsed by the US Department of Justice when they banned it from federal prison facilities, declaring "the entire publication" to be, "a threat to the good order and discipline of the institution." - https://kokeshforpresident.com/ Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram, Twitter or via email mark@vudream.com Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

Secret to Becoming More Creative in Your Everyday Life w/ Allen Gannett
356
Big data entrepreneur Allen Gannett overturns the mythology around creative genius, and reveals the science and secrets behind achieving breakout commercial success in any field. We have been spoon-fed the notion that creativity is the province of genius -- of those favored, brilliant few whose moments of insight arrive in unpredictable flashes of divine inspiration. And if we are not a genius, we might as well pack it in and give up. Either we have that gift, or we don’t. But Allen shows that simply isn’t true. Recent research has shown that there is a predictable science behind achieving commercial success in any creative endeavor, from writing a popular novel to starting up a successful company to creating an effective marketing campaign. As the world’s most creative people have discovered, we are enticed by the novel and the familiar. By understanding the mechanics of what Gannett calls “the creative curve” – the point of optimal tension between the novel and the familiar – everyone can better engineer mainstream success. In a thoroughly entertaining book that describes the stories and insights of everyone from the Broadway team behind Dear Evan Hansen, to the founder of Reddit, from the Chief Content Officer of Netflix to Michelin star chefs, Gannett reveals the four laws of creative success and identifies the common patterns behind their achievement. Allen Gannett is the founder and CEO of TrackMaven, a marketing analytics service whose clients have included Microsoft, Marriott, Saks Fifth Avenue, Home Depot, Aetna, Honda, and GE. He has been on the “30 Under 30” lists for both Inc. and Forbes. He is a contributor for FastCompany.com and has an upcoming book The Creative Curve, on the disciplined pursuit of creativity, coming out in June 2018 from Currency, a division of Penguin Random House. He was also once a very pitiful runner-up on Wheel of Fortune. - https://amzn.to/2JtWdK2 - https://www.linkedin.com/in/allengannett/ - https://twitter.com/Allen Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram, Twitter or via email mark@vudream.com Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

FLOW #32 - Take a Mentally Boosting Binaural Power Nap, Better Than Coffee
373
You're listening to the 32nd episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! Today's episode is on a tool I've been experimenting with....binaural power naps after reading Aubrey Marcus' book. Please let me know how you like these daily FLOW episodes. Power naps are, even if only for thirty minutes, very helpful for people to clear their minds if they are struggling with anything during the day. If we can tune ourselves into a higher frequency, even if only for a few minutes before we sleep, we can wake up in that frequency and because we have released ourselves, it is easier to stay there longer. Over time, everything becomes calmer. A lot of people who have suffered from conditions such as depression find themselves tired a lot and wanting to sleep more. Many would struggle to just get out of bed because of this, whilst other people who were feeling down tended to manifest little illnesses here and there such as colds and flu, which is the mind's way of demanding the sleep it needs. The more resistance we feel, the more sleep we will need. A lot of people do not allow themselves to nap during the day as they think it wastes their time but in fact, it is the exact opposite. It will help tremendously and the more we fight it, the less we allow help for our own well-beings. Putting ourselves on a high frequency before sleeping, including every time we wake up in the middle of the night (if we do), can be so beneficial to our daily life and can keep us feeling happier throughout the day. When a machine has run out of battery, it shuts off. We should too.

#104 - Justin Stenstrom | Dear Men, Embrace Life and Become an Elite Man Today
2297
Justin Stenstrom is a nationally-acclaimed life coach, author, entrepreneur, and speaker. He is the Editor-in-Chief of EliteManMagazine.com, the founder of Elite Life Nutrition, and the host of the Elite Man Podcast where he interviews some of the best self-help experts in the world, including guests like Robert Greene, Grant Cardone, Dr. John Gray, Bas Rutten, Dr. Dale Bredesen, Kevin Harrington and many others. Once anxious, insecure, depressed, and unhappy, Justin’s overcome many of life’s greatest obstacles and loves nothing more than helping others do the same! Justin's auto-biography: My name is Justin Stenstrom. As mentioned above, I’m the man behind EliteManMagazine.com – the world’s #1 website for men’s self-improvement, Elite Life Nutrition – the wildly popular and innovative nutritional supplement company, and the Elite Man Podcast – the #1 men’s health podcast in the world. My work has been featured in hundreds of media outlets including The Huffington Post, Thought Catalog, Maxim, Men’s Health, Bustle, The Good Men Project, Lifehack, Elite Daily, and many more. I love riding motorcycles, mostly in the fast lane, drinking several alcoholic beverages on Saturdays with a select handful of great friends, filling my head with trivial knowledge to show off my Mensa-level IQ at any given opportunity, and playing meaningless but ultra competitive sports games like basketball or ping-pong, typically to the death. And oh yeah, I love pushing the boundaries of my existence to the absolute limit in every single facet of life. It keeps things exciting and me happy. Yup, my life is pretty damn good. But it wasn’t always this way. No, once upon a time, it was awful… There was a period in my life (over 10 years ago) when I was extremely shy, lonely, insecure, anxious, and depressed. Very depressed. I had no confidence, no friends, no social life, and absolutely zero dating life. I was a bona fide loser and couldn’t get a date if I’d hit the lottery and promised to share half my earnings with the ugliest duckling in school. Even she would’ve rejected me for the sad, pathetic young man I was. In fact, when high-school ended I was actually still a virgin… but don’t tell anyone that. And don’t feel bad for me, this was all self-imposed. For years leading up to that point, I was a selfish, inconsiderate, and wholly ungrateful young man, and deserved most of the pain that afflicted me at the time. But one day, after contemplating the numerous manners for which I could go about killing myself and ending all the suffering, something happened. As I mentioned, I’d been extraordinarily depressed during this time and could see no other way out of my struggles. Having to endure constant despair, frequent panic attacks, and unrelenting thoughts of feeling like shit, I’d been obsessively plotting my own demise. But on this particular day, for some reason, something inside me snapped and made me see the light. I had a long hard look at myself in the mirror and truly reflected on my life and where it was dangerously heading. Rather than throw in the towel, I decided to fight. Even now, I’m not sure where this spirit came from, but it came. And with a steadfast fervor to beat my woes, and reclaim my happiness, I set out on my self-help journey. A journey that would span several unbelievably challenging years, but a quest that by its finality would turn me into a completely different man. A happy man. A wise man. A helping man. And yes, an elite man. Since this time, it’s been my sole mission to help other men overcome their struggles as well. To show them the light and carry the torch to illuminate their darkest days. I help hundreds of thousands of men overcome their struggles every month and become the best men they can be. I’m and elite man and I love helping other men become elite too. - http://justinstenstrom.com - http://elitemanmagazine.com/ - https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/elite-man-podcast-lifestyle/id954083494?mt=2 Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram, Twitter or via email mark@vudream.com Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

#103 - Jordan Taylor Wright | Forever In The Infinite Now - Conscious Purposeful Present Human Existence
2415
Jordan Taylor Wright, the founder of Taylor Cut Films, is a creative director and filmmaker based out of Los Angeles. Over a 10 year span, Taylor Cut Films has worked and created original content for artists such as Usher, Justin Bieber, Jennifer Lopez, and The Chainsmokers. Jordan and his team are currently creating ad campaigns with renowned brands such as Bose, L’Oréal, American Express, and Marvel. While spending years traveling the world while on tour with eight-time Grammy Award-winner Usher and creating stunning visual content for artists including Justin Bieber, Jennifer Lopez, The Chainsmokers and many others, Wright found himself on a spiritual journey. He credits his career and personal success with finding meditation and learning to live in the present. "Forever in the Infinite Now" delves into Wright’s own experience and aims to share this message with the world. “I got to experience these amazing places at such a high level, but I also saw how chasing money doesn’t make you truly fulfilled. Once we, as humans, realize that we are all nothing and by nothing, I mean no thing, we are freed to realize that we are also all everything. When we operate without ego, we are able to find what is truly fulfilling,” said Jordan Taylor Wright, author. "Forever in the Infinite Now" is a visual written narrative with illustrations explaining how we as humans are the functioning harmony between our mind, physical body, and spirit. As we read along with a curated playlist, we get to discover how to remove ourselves from our thoughts and ego, to live in a place of meditation, perceiving this reality from the mirror reflection of our conscious awareness. Let’s allow ourselves to be free from any stress, worry, and attachments, to live eternally in happiness within the infinite moment of now. Within human existence we’ve been constantly searching for the purpose of why we are here. The simple answer to this question however is not an outward journey, but rather an internal discovery within. We are here to be present, to be the essence of space and time itself, and to co-create this universal projected reality together. Learn how to unlock the mysteries of the universe by finding the truth within the harmony of our 3 core elements: THE MIND, THE BODY, AND THE SPIRIT. “Forever in the Infinite Now” is a visual written narrative with illustrations explaining how we as humans are the functioning harmony between our mind, physical body, and spirit.

FLOW #31 - Writing & Journaling As A Self-Amplifying Feedback Loop to Improve Your Life
870
You're listening to the 31st episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! Today's episode is on creating a journaling practice to improve the quality, trajectory, and condition of your life. Please let me know how you like these daily FLOW episodes. Journaling can have a positive effect on your behavior and well being if it: - Makes you step back and evaluate your thoughts, emotions, and behavior - Explores solutions - Brings your emotions and motivations into alignment with your deepest values - Converts negative energy into positive creativity and growth - Lowers your emotional reactivity to others - Increases tolerance of ambiguity, ambivalence, and unpredictability, which are part of normal living - Helps you see other people’s perspectives alongside your own - Makes you feel more humane - Helps you take a definite course of action. Journaling can have a negative effect on your behavior and well being if it: - Makes you live too much in your head - Makes you a passive observer of your life (thinking about how you’ll record it instead of experiencing what is happening) - Makes you self-obsessed - Becomes a vehicle of blame instead of solutions - Wallows in negative things that have happened to you. Below is a guide to reap the benefits of journaling while avoiding the pitfalls. 1. Write a few sentences about a problem or negative feelings that you believe need expression: Try to look objectively at the thoughts, emotions, and behavior you expressed. Would you think the same if you felt comfortable? Can you convert the negative energy of this experience into positive creativity and growth? Would you feel the same if you were firmly in touch with your core values? Are you acting according to your deepest values and the kind of person you want to be? 2. Write a few sentences about how your description above is in keeping with your deepest values: 3. Write a few sentences considering each of the following: What can you learn from this matter? How can you grow from this experience? How can what you learn make the world a better place and you a better person? Can you tolerate a certain amount of ambiguity or lack of clarity about this matter? Is it okay to have mixed feelings about the matter you described above? Can you raise your confidence to deal with the worst case scenario, should it occur? Do you have a plan of action should the worst case scenario happen? What are the perspectives of other people in your problem description? How would they describe the events? What core hurts might they be experiencing or avoiding (unimportant, guilty, devalued, powerless, inadequate, or unlovable)? Are you being as humane and compassionate as you want to be? Do you think the other people involved in your description are more frail than cruel or evil? 4. Describe what you will do to improve the situation you described above (if you can't improve the situation, describe what you can do to improve your experience of it, i.e., how you can make it more pleasant or less uncomfortable for yourself): Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter or via email mark@vudream.com Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/ Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9

Inspiration | The Story You Tell Yourself About Yourself is Everything w/ Ira Israel
165
Ira Israel is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and Mindful Relationship Coach. He graduated from the University of Pennsylvania and has graduate degrees in Psychology, Philosophy, and Religious Studies. “A helpful blend of psychology East and West, a subject that is dear to my own heart.” — Jack Kornfield, PhD, author of A Path with Heart and founder of Spirit Rock Center Ira has taught mindfulness to thousands of physicians, psychologists, attorneys, engineers and creative professionals across America. He is the author of the New World Library book “How To Survive Your Childhood Now That You’re and Adult: A Path to Authenticity and Awakening” and creator of the best-selling "Beginner's Guide to Happiness," “Beginner’s Guide to Mindfulness Meditation,” “Mindfulness for Anxiety,” and “Mindfulness for Depression” videos and DVDs. As children, we learned to get approval by creating facades to help us get our emotional and psychological needs met, but we also rebelled against authority as a way of individuating. As adults, these conflicting desires leave many of us feeling anxious or depressed because our authentic selves are buried deep beneath glitzy or rebellious exteriors or some combination thereof. In this provocative book, eclectic teacher and therapist Ira Israel offers a powerful, comprehensive, step-by-step path to recognizing the ways of being that we created as children and transcending them with compassion and acceptance. By doing so, we discover our true callings and cultivate the authentic love we were born deserving.

FLOW #29 - Importance of Going All In and Obsession A.K.A 0 to 100
637
You're listening to the 29th episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! Today's episode is on the importance of going from 0 to your life to complete 100 effort and undivided attention. “If you want something you've never had You must be willing to do something you've never done.” ― Thomas Jefferson "I have talked about obsession many times and it is something that has pushed me. I have been called so many negative things -- I’m sure you have, too. So I looked up obsessed and it says, “the domination of one’s thoughts or feelings by a persistent idea, image, or desire.” The rest of the world treats this mindset like a disease, but I think it describes the perfect approach to success -- you must be obsessed with success. To dominate your space, your goals, your dreams and ambitions you must first dominate your every minute of every day, every interest and thought. Obsession is not a bad thing here it is a requirement to get where you want to go. You must be fanatical about success so the world knows you will not compromise or stop. Until you become obsessed with your mission no one will take you seriously. Until the planet understands you will not give up or go away, that you are 100 percent committed and have complete and utter conviction, you will not get the attention you need and the support you want. Think of obsession like a fire. You want to build it so big that people feel compelled to sit around it in admiration. With a fire you have to keep adding wood to sustain the intensity and the glow -- you must obsess over keeping the fire going or it will burn out and turn to ashes. Your dreams are that fire. Keep them burning bright or they will become ashes. To create a massive reality -- a 10X reality -- you have to follow up every action with obsession to see it through to completion; otherwise it is not a success. You need to show up every day and take massive action and follow it up with more action. You cannot take breaks or sit on your laurels. You need to stay seriously motivated to take 10X actions every day no matter what -- sick, healthy, happy, sad. Although most people already take action constantly, everyone knows deep down that it isn’t the kind of action that’s going to get them anywhere in life. Most are doing nothing or have always given up before they see something through to success. You must keep taking action and showing up and then show up more. Others retreat in an attempt to avoid failure and negative experiences. Huge sections of the population are merely operating at normal levels to get by and fit in -- we are taught not to stick out and get attention." - Grant Cardone Please let me know how you like these daily FLOW episodes.

You might say you’re introverted or awkward, or that you're fine around friends but just can't speak up in a meeting or at a party. Maybe you're usually confident but have recently moved or started a new job, only to feel isolated and unsure. If you get nervous in social situations―meeting your partner's friends, public speaking, standing awkwardly in the elevator with your boss―you've probably been told, “Just be yourself!” But that's easier said than done―especially if you're prone to social anxiety. Weaving together cutting-edge science, concrete tips, and the compelling stories of real people who have risen above their social anxiety, Dr. Ellen Hendriksen proposes a groundbreaking idea: you already have everything you need to succeed in any unfamiliar social situation. As someone who lives with social anxiety, Dr. Hendriksen has devoted her career to helping her clients overcome the same obstacles she has. With familiarity, humor, and authority, Dr. Hendriksen takes the reader through the roots of social anxiety and why it endures, how we can rewire our brains through our behavior, and―at long last―exactly how to quiet your Inner Critic, the pesky voice that whispers, "Everyone will judge you." Using her techniques to develop confidence, think through the buzz of anxiety, and feel comfortable in any situation, you can finally be your true, authentic self. - www.ellenhendriksen.com - https://amzn.to/2zjjudQ Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram, Twitter or via email mark@vudream.com Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

FLOW #28 - The Thin Line Between Patience & Delusion w/ Eric Barker
515
You're listening to the 28th episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! Today's episode is on the pursuit of your journey and the element of patience and intent. Featuring, Eric Barker, his book presents science-based answers and expert insight on how to be awesome at life. Over 320,000 people subscribe to his weekly newsletter and his content is syndicated by Time Magazine, The Week, and Business Insider. He has been featured in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic Monthly, and the Financial Times. Eric is also a sought-after speaker and interview subject, and has given talks at MIT, Yale, Google, United States Military Central Command (CENTCOM), NASDAQ, and the Olympic Training Center. How to Be Patient with Your Dreams: 1) Be Grateful Some people recognize their life dreams or purposes as children, while others identify their dreams during adulthood. Whenever you come to know your dreams, you are very fortunate. Be grateful for this knowledge, because then you have the opportunity to commit to seeing your dreams manifest. You also will inspire others to live their dreams, which is to be appreciated. Are you grateful for knowing what your life dreams are? Remember the gift of that knowing. 2) Note Why Your Dreams Are Important Daily Have you felt confusion or doubts about your actions to fulfill your dreams? After handling various tasks to move closer to your dreams, you may feel unsure or doubtful when things don’t seem to be unfolding as quickly as you like. This is the perfect time to note WHY your dreams are important. Each day, write why your dreams are significant. Read these statements aloud and feel excitement flow through you.This is a wonderful way to inspire yourself but still be patient. Did you note why your dreams are important today? Take a few minutes to do it now! 3) Remember That Little Steps Make Big Dreams Come True Do you look in awe at the achievements of famous people? You may see them at an awards show, on a television interview, or on social media with tons of followers, but do you think of what it takes for the famous people to get there? Some parts of your dreams may unfold quickly, but many times, there is a process to their fruition. 4) Write About Your Progression You can remain patient with your dreams by writing about your progression to realize them. Write about how you pursued your dreams throughout the day in a journal, notebook, or in the memo section of your cellphone. Is your schedule packed during the day? No worries! Before going to bed each night, take at least five minutes to jot down developments related to your dreams. As you write daily, you’ll have a greater sense of appreciation and enthusiasm to do more the next day. Plus, looking at your progression regularly may show you that your dreams already manifested in some ways. Have you been writing about the evolution of your dreams? If you answer yes, keep it up! If you answer no, start writing today! 5) Talk to Supporters You Trust About the Journey While you probably heard that you shouldn’t share your dreams with others, there are ideal times to do so with the right people. Read that last part carefully. There are ideal times to share your dreams with the right people. Who are the right people? The right people are those who encourage you to fulfill your deepest desires. They are people who share constructive feedback so you move forward with clarity and excellence. The right people know your dreams, but respect them and you enough not to share those dreams with others. Do you have supporters you really trust to discuss your progress to fulfill your dreams? Whether it’s one person or 10 people, embrace the sincere support of trustworthy folks in your life. Talking to true supporters about your journey can help you be patient with your dreams.

Inspiration | In the Midst of Adversity w/ Marcus Aurelius Anderson
382
One of my most favorite guests, Marcus Aurelius Anderson inspires us to fully embrace our gift, adversity and storm the gates of heaven and hell to get what we want in life. Marcus Aurelius Anderson is an author, TEDx speaker, Keynote Speaker and executive Mindset Coach. While preparing to deploy with the U.S. Army, Marcus suffered a severe spinal injury that left him paralyzed. After dying on the operating table twice, the surgeons saved his life, but told him he'd never walk again. Having no other option, Marcus started doing some brutally honest soul searching, looking for the lesson to be learned from his injury. Once he started seeing his Adversity as a gift instead of a curse, something miraculous began to happen... Marcus now speaks, writes, inspires and teaches others to overcome their own Adversity and actualize their personal definition of success. His TEDx talk “The Gift of Adversity” tells of how we can use our Adversity to make us into better leaders, citizens and human beings. His book “The Gift of Adversity: Overcoming Paralysis and Pain to Find Purpose” is available on Amazon and Kindle.

#97 - Max La Manna | Cooking as the Greatest Self-Development Tool of All Time from a Vegan & 0 Waste Chef
2002
Max La Manna, the face behind Eating with Max, has become a cooking sensation in a short amount of time through the popularity of his Instagram. His fans and followers love his healthy, colorful recipes — which are not only healthy, but they're simple too. Each recipe has natural ingredients and are mainly plant-based. But what really stands these recipes apart is how they're all waste-free. Your health and the earth will thank you for trying his recipes! Max La Manna is the perfect example of a typical kid that grew up in the late 80’s and 90’s in America thinking eating an Italian American style diet, including animal products like meats and cheeses, was normal and healthy. Despite always being slightly more conscious about the environment than his peers, which he credits to the way he was raised, there was a pivotal moment in Max’s life where his consciousness went to a new level. To an extent this moment redefined who he was and helped him work out his true purpose. Today Max is an all round great guy, a passionate vegan and an advocate for living a no waste life. - www.eatingwithmax.com - https://www.instagram.com/eatingwithmax/ Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram, Twitter or via email mark@vudream.com Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

FLOW #26 - My Morning Routine (Hydration, Sun, Movement, Exercise, Meditation, etc)
482
You're listening to the 26th episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! Today's episode is on the importance of setting a morning routine and I share what I do on most mornings. Mark's Morning Routine: 1. Wake up in Gratitude (no electronics for first hour) 2. Hydrate with Salt + Lemon Water 3. Go Outside and Get some Sun 4. Light movement - Walk, Pushups, Yoga 5. Mindfulness Meditation 6. Journaling Practice 7. Exercise / Gym 8. Shower -> Cold Shower 9. Bulletproof Coffee / Breakfast 1. It Reduces Stress Having a routine is going to help you do your things in the morning without thinking about it. And if you don’t think about it, well you don’t stress about it 🙂 Everything has a specific order and the more you do your routine, the more it will become automatic. You will move from one task to another. Think about it: Every time you take your car, you automatically lock your car door without thinking about it. But when you first got a car you were always freaking out about forgetting to lock it. (At least I can tell you that I did, but now it’s just automatic, I don’t even stress about it because I know that my thumb is going to push the button on my keys without me thinking about it.) 2. You Will Gain Time As we said earlier, knowing what needs to be done and in which order will help you to move from one task to another without thinking about it, therefore, you won’t waste time wondering about what to do next. Should you walk the dog or should you take a shower first? You will just know and this will help you to gain your time back in the morning. Meaning that you will be able to sleep 5 more minutes! 3. YOU WILL BE LESS LIKELY TO FORGET SOMETHING I’m going to tell you the story that made me realize that my life needed to change. Every morning, I used to wake up early and leave the house within 30-40 minutes to end up stuck in traffic for about an hour. You know how this feels right? It was a nonstop stop and go, listening to the same songs over and over on the radio. To tell you the truth, I was the first one coming at 8 in the morning (most of my coworkers are coming between 9:30 and 11 am). I was also the first one to leave in the evening to be stuck in traffic for another 40 minutes. But one day, I arrived at work after being stuck in traffic for more than an hour and parked. As soon as I opened the door, I realized that my laptop was still at home. And guess what? I cannot work without my laptop … I don’t think I’ve ever been that mad at myself. And do you know what was the worst? It only took me 20 minutes to drive home! 20 MINUTES! Obviously, I did what any person trying to stay sane would do, I contacted my team to let them know that I wasn’t feeling well and was going to work from home on that day. No, I wasn’t feeling physically sick, but spending another hour stuck in traffic would have driven me insane and I wouldn’t have been productive at all for the whole day… You can say that I was going to be mentally sick. Did something like this ever happen to you? Anyway, all of this is to say that if I had a morning routine at the time, I am pretty sure that this wouldn’t have happened. 4. YOU WILL TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF The morning is usually the only time of the day when we take care of ourselves. We add moisturizer cream to keep your skin soft, we add makeup and look at our beautiful selves in the mirror, we select clothes and dress up, … But let’s be honest: we are in a rush. You might have to take care of kids – or like me – end up rushing to your car to go to work. What if you had the time to pamper yourself every day? Would you like it? Well, you can make it happen! All you have to do is create a routine and spare some time for you! Schedule a time to sit on your porch, feel the sun on your face and drink your coffee while the kids are still sleeping or before rushing to work. How does this sound? 5. YOU WILL EAT HEALTHIER IN THE MORNING Since I’ve stopped rushing out of the house in the morning, I stopped eating in my car and started eating better. You see, I knew I was going to be stuck in traffic so my breakfast was usually a packaged sweet snack, (with chocolate, obviously) that I would eat in 5 seconds to get my two hands back to steer the wheel. Now I take the time to eat an organic gluten-free muffin, and yes it is still of chocolate but at least it’s healthier than packaged snacks 😀 And I also have the time to drink chamomile tea to relax in the morning. I have to tell you that I am happier now that I take the time for myself in the morning. Yes, I get home late at night but at least I have a good day 🙂 Source: hellopeacefulmind Please let me know how you like these daily FLOW episodes.

You're listening to the 25th episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! Today's episode is on my experience yesterday, interviewing one of the co-founder of Spyce! “We were four really hungry MIT students and water polo teammates tired of spending $10 on take-out lunches and dinners. Our athletic appetites required better nutrition but our student budgets didn’t allow for that kind of expense. While we ate our bland chopped salads and stir-frys, we dreamed of an alternative: a robot that cooked tasty and nutritious meals, served them, and cleaned up after. We were all robotics-obsessed engineers, so we quit yapping and built one in our fraternity basement. Two years and many burns, bruises, and brussel sprouts later, we’re opening our first restaurant and we couldn’t be more excited.” MICHAEL FARID, KALE ROGERS, LUKE SCHLUETER, AND BRADY KNIGHT, “THE SPYCE BOYS” https://www.spyce.com/ Please let me know how you like these daily FLOW episodes.

FLOW #24 - Why Sleep Is More Important Than Exercise and Healthy Eating
579
You're listening to the 24th episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! Today's episode is on the MOST important activity that I partake in other than meditation...and it's sleeping 7-8 hours a day. 1. Sleeping Helps Prevent Diabetes and Heart Disease Everyone has problems falling asleep from time to time, but if you are chronically suffering from a lack of sleep, your odds of developing heart disease or type 2 diabetes will significantly increase. With this in mind, individuals who have insomnia, sleep apnea or another complication that makes it difficult to have a restful night should consider talking to their doctor about getting a sleep aid. It is also important to note that regular exercise and following a set bedtime and wake-up routine will help. 2. Sleep Makes You Feel Good We all know the glorious feeling of waking up after a good night’s sleep. Our minds feel sharper, our bodies have fewer aches, and we’re more physically and emotionally equipped to take on the rest of the day. Unfortunately, getting to this happy stage is very difficult for some people. If you struggle with falling or staying asleep, it is wise to follow some scientifically proven methods for fixing the problem. For example, a post on the science of sleeping suggests cooling your face, dropping the temperature in your bedroom to 60 degrees Fahrenheit, and taking the rather unorthodox seeming approach of trying to force yourself to stay awake while lying in bed. Apparently, those who stare at the ceiling instead of having their eyes closed typically fall asleep more quickly. 3. Sleeping Helps with Weight Management Have you ever noticed that you feel hungrier when you are sleep deprived? Researchers from Hendrix College studied this phenomenon with college students. They conclusively proved that a lack of sleep leads to an increased daily consumption of approximately 300 calories. This happens because the brain needs sleep to perform its best. When it doesn’t get enough, it burns through glucose, carbs, and other human fuels more quickly than usual in an attempt to keep you alert and fully functional. If you want to lose weight, eight hours of sleep should be part of your nightly routine. 4. Naps Boost Productivity Studies by NASA and Dr. Sara C. Mednick have found that naps serve another vital function in our overall sleep needs. In fact, if you take a nap of at least 26 minutes between 1 and 4 p.m., you’ll experience a productivity boost of up to 34 percent. When you consider the impact that productivity levels can have on everything from your job performance to completing personal tasks, it becomes easy to see why everyone should be given a nap break during the day. You may not be able to get your employer to sanction this idea, but consider using part of your lunch break to help you catch a few extra ZZZs. 5. Sleeping Helps Your Immune System Your immune system is constantly at work attempting to protect you from a long list of potential illnesses. You can help it have a high rate of success by getting at least seven hours of sleep per night. Sadly, those who are unable to do this will suffer from an impaired immune system that leaves them more prone to catching a cold or the flu. One study even found that sleep deprivation following a vaccination could reduce the effects of the vaccine by as much as 50 percent. Therefore, it is critical to ensure that you get enough sleep if you wish to remain as healthy as possible. 6. Sleep Provides A Cognitive Boost If you have a big test or presentation tomorrow, the absolute best thing you can do for yourself is to get a good night’s sleep. This is because researchers have determined that there is a strong link between sleep and cognitive performance. When you don’t get enough sleep, your brain will experience reduced blood flow. As a result, your cognitive speed, attention to detail, memory retention and recall, decision-making skills, and emotional intelligence will all begin to plummet. Even if you sleep a solid eight hours tonight, these issues will begin to show up approximately 16 hours after you wake up. This helps highlight just how bad of an idea it is to pull an all-nighter. 7. Sleep Helps You Age More Gracefully Everyone has probably had the experience of looking at themselves in the mirror the morning after a poor night’s sleep. You may have been shocked to see that you looked rougher than usual, and this is not a coincidence. When you sleep, your body releases certain hormones that are essential for skin health and overall well-being. Failure to get enough sleep disrupts this release and could remove it altogether. In children, this can even lead to stunted growth. Therefore, if you want to look your best, sleep is one of the easiest ways to achieve this goal. 8. Sleep Provides A Mood Boost Perhaps one of sleep’s most essential functions is to help people maintain a stable mood. Those who have chronic insomnia often suffer from higher levels of depression, anxiety, and stress. Even just one night without the proper amount of sleep can have a negative impact on your mood and ability to deal with stressful situations. This highlights yet again why sleeping is a better usage of your time than late-night cramming before a test or any other big event. 9. Sleep Deprivation Increases Cravings Aside from simply making you hungrier, sleep deprivation also causes an increased craving for food that is high in sugar and carbs. This explains why people who have a rough night without a lot of sleep find themselves reaching for candy that they might otherwise skip. Again, this usually leads to an increase in calories, and it’s another symptom of poor sleep that can eventually cause type 2 diabetes. 10. Sleep is Essential for Libido If your libido has been waning lately, it is good idea to take a closer look at how much sleep you’re getting. This is because testosterone becomes reduced after a lack of sleep, which makes women feel less interested in any type of sexual activity. Shockingly, every lost hour of sleep causes a 14 percent drop in libido. Therefore, whether trying to get pregnant has become an unpleasant chore or you simply feel less interested in sex than you used to, you may be able to boost your libido significantly by adding one more hour of sleep to your nightly routine.

#93 - David Burkus | Friend of a Friend: Understanding the Hidden Networks That Can Transform Your Life and Your Career
2043
David Burkus is a best-selling author, a sought after speaker, and business school professor. In 2017, he was named as one of the world’s top business thought leaders by Thinkers50. His newest book, Friend of a Friend, offers readers a new perspective on how to grow their networks and build key connections—one based on the science of human behavior, not rote networking advice. He is also the author of Under New Management and The Myths of Creativity. David is a regular contributor to Harvard Business Review and his work has been featured in Fast Company, the Financial Times, Inc magazine, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, and CBS This Morning. David’s innovative views on leadership have earned him invitations to speak to leaders from a variety of organizations. He’s delivered keynote speeches and workshops for Fortune 500 companies such as Microsoft, Google, and Stryker and governmental and military leaders at the U.S. Naval Academy and Naval Postgraduate School. His TED talk has been viewed over 1.8 million times. When he’s not speaking or writing, David is in the classroom. He is associate professor of leadership and innovation at Oral Roberts University where he was recently named one of the nation’s “Top 40 Under 40 Professors Who Inspire.” What if the advice we’ve all heard about networking was wrong? What if the best way to grow your network ISN’T by introducing yourself to strangers at cocktail parties, handing out business cards, or signing up for the latest online tool, but by developing a better understanding of the existing network that’s already around you? We know that it’s essential to reach out and build your network. But did you know that it’s actually your weaker or former contacts who will be the most helpful to you? Or that many of our best efforts at meeting new people simply serve up the same old opportunities we already have? In this startling new look at the art and science of networking, business school professor David Burkus digs deep to find the unexpected secrets that reveal the best ways to grow your universe. Based upon entertaining case studies and scientific research, this practical and revelatory guide shares what the best networkers really do…and it looks a lot less like collecting business cards and making random introductions and a lot more like fostering authentic connections and seeking out diverse new voices. Forget the outdated advice you’ve already heard. Learn how to make use of the hidden networks you already have. - davidburkus.com Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram, Twitter or via email mark@vudream.com Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

FLOW #23 - Anchor Yourself in the Present Moment to Find your Life's Purpose
518
You're listening to the 23rd episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! Today's episode is about the actual key to finding your life's purpose...and no you can't find it with a mathematical equation. We are all born with a deep and meaningful purpose that we have to discover. Your purpose is not something you need to make up; it’s already there. You have to uncover it in order to create the life you want. You may ask yourself, “What is my purpose in life?” You can begin to discover your passion or your purpose by exploring two things: What do you love to do? What comes easily to you? Of course, it takes work to develop your talents- even the most gifted musician still has to practice-but it should feel natural, like rowing downstream rather than upstream. I love to teach, to write, to coach, to facilitate, to train, and to develop transformational seminars, workshops, and courses. I love to bring other leaders together for conferences and to co-create new approaches to our work. These things come easy for me. Although I invested many years in learning how to master these skills, I loved every minute of it. In other words, work is required, but suffering is not. If you are struggling and suffering, you are probably not living on purpose. Please let me know how you like these daily FLOW episodes.

FLOW #22 - How Google & Butter Saved My Life | The Case for Targeted Advertising to Create Technological Serendipity
402
You're listening to the 22nd episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! Today's episode is about a downwards spiral I fell into a few years ago and how I solved it. The year was 2016. I had finished my first year of college and I didn’t gain the freshmen 15, I gained the freshmen 50. I went from 165 to 215 in less than 3 months. This was prompted by binge eating bags of sour patch kids (70+ grams of sugar) every night because I disliked where I was in my life. In addition, I was chugging down 2-3 cans of heavily caffeinated red bull every single day. At first, I was doing it for more energy, but I quickly realized after a week I’d get extremely tired after drinking a can of red bull. Which led me to the discovery of scientifically backed studies that showed diminished performance after 200mg of caffeine. Tired, depressed, and anxious I had completely given up on life and spiraled down even more into binge eating other foods and napping extensively throughout the day. My typical day looked like this: - Wake up at 8 am for class. - Drink a red bull on the way. - Come back from class and nap until noon for my next class. - Wake up, drink another red bull on my way. - Get out of class and eat horrible food at my school’s cafeteria like fried chicken fingers and fries. - Come back from classes for the day and drink another red bull. - Binge on watching TV Shows - Take another nap. - Wake up and eat dinner and continue watching tv shows. - Stay up until 4 am. - Repeat. Needless to say, I was in a detrimental cycle that I wasn’t consciously aware of at that time. It took me about 3 months to realize what was going on and the fact that I needed to break out of this cycle before things got even worse. Desperately looking for answers, I turned to the internet to help. After many hours of googling, I found way too much information about what I should do. I looked into every single diet and potential solution and the wide range of information left me even more confused. Become vegan, eat fat, don’t eat fat, eat only in these hours of the day..blah blah blah! Throughout history, the ability to have more choices and options in front of you was a sign of luxury and prestige. However, with the internet, information has been commoditized and you now have more choices than you will ever become aware of forever. Feeling hopeless and lost I had completely given up and I stopped looking. The following day I was on a website and a google advertisement popped up for this strange thing I’ve never heard of called “Bulletproof Butter Coffee” I can’t find the original ad banner but I remember it had a nice looking coffee cup in the image, and I thought “HEY I like coffee what’s this?” Clicking on the banner led me down the rabbit hole of discovering bulletproof coffee, which is the critically acclaimed, mycotoxin free coffee with grass-fed butter and MCT oil. Huh? What? How is this even a thing, this sounds like the worst idea I’ve ever heard. Luckily, I hit the order now button and went to the grocery store to buy some Kerrygold grass-fed butter. After receiving the shipment, I tried it next morning and it was an interesting experience. It actually tasted awesome and I figured I’d stick with this for a while. In case you happen to live in 1970 and think fat is bad for you… It turns out the creator of this, Dave Asprey also has a Bulletproof diet regiment which calls for eating plenty of good fats and wholesome vegetables. Long story short, I ended up losing over 50 pounds in an extremely short period of around a month. All from simply eating fats and vegetables. My brain felt like it had turned on for the first time in my life and I could think clearly about my life. This diet regiment led me to a serious amount of interpersonal experiences that fundamentally changed my life for the better and I haven’t looked back to date. Mostly all of the "diseases" I had been facing and been medicated for my entire life...just went away after a couple of months of healthy eating. So why did I tell you all of this about butter coffee? I think these online services like Google, Facebook, etc know us better than ourselves. Google recommended that advertisement to me for a variety of reasons. Dave is smart enough to put some money behind online advertising as well as my previous google history. If that advertisement never popped up I would probably be still searching endlessly eating celery, egg whites and oatmeal haha. This article is not about data ownership. If Facebook thinks they own my data or it’s ownerless, they are far from reality. I figured I’d write this article because everyone is talking about how these online tech giants are collecting our data and then bundling it and selling to advertisers. Honestly, why is that a bad thing? As long as the advertisers aren’t malicious and selling genuine products I don’t see a problem with that. Thank you to Dave Asprey and Bulletproof for creating amazing products and starting a much-needed health revolution and Google & Facebook for creating information platforms.

#92 - Eric Barker | The Surprising Science Behind Why Everything You Know About Success Is (Mostly) Wrong
3172
Eric Barker is the creator of the blog and Wall Street Journal bestselling book Barking Up the Wrong Tree, which presents science-based answers and expert insight on how to be awesome at life. Much of the advice we’ve been told about achievement is logical, earnest…and downright wrong. In Barking Up the Wrong Tree, Eric Barker reveals the extraordinary science behind what actually determines success and most importantly, how anyone can achieve it. You’ll learn: - Why valedictorians rarely become millionaires, and how your biggest weakness might actually be your greatest strength. - Whether nice guys finish last and why the best lessons about cooperation come from gang members, pirates, and serial killers. - Why trying to increase confidence fails and how Buddhist philosophy holds a superior solution - The secret ingredient to “grit” that Navy SEALs and disaster survivors leverage to keep going - How to find work-life balance using the strategy of Genghis Khan, the errors of Albert Einstein, and a little lesson from Spider-Man By looking at what separates the extremely successful from the rest of us, we learn what we can do to be more like them—and find out in some cases why it’s good that we aren’t. Barking Up the Wrong Tree draws on startling statistics and surprising anecdotes to help you understand what works and what doesn’t so you can stop guessing at success and start living the life you want. His work has been mentioned in the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic Monthly, TIME magazine, The Week, and Business Insider. He is a former Hollywood screenwriter, having worked on projects for Walt Disney Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox, and Revolution Studios. He is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and holds an MBA from Boston College and a Master of Fine Arts from UCLA. - https://www.bakadesuyo.com/ - https://www.amazon.com/Barking-Wrong-Tree-Surprising-Everything/dp/0062416049 Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram, Twitter or via email mark@vudream.com Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

FLOW #21 - Mindful Cooking as a Joyful Meditation
357
You're listening to the 21st episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! Today's episode is about mindful cooking as a joyous and peaceful meditation. "Cooking is meditation. For me, when I cook whether I am playing music or not, I am in the moment with my food. That's why I think food tastes so good sometimes because you are one with the food. Think of cooking as music; you don't race to get to the end of the song to understand it - cooking food is like this for me." - Max La Manna Why is Cooking Actually Meditation? 1. Simple Tasks Encourage Peace One of the most basic forms of meditation is finding peace and enjoyment in simple daily tasks. Cooking is a simple daily task. You can also attempt complex recipes to give yourself more practice at both cooking and meditation. Easy soups and casseroles now become a peace-enriched event. Soak up even more peace by trying a more in-depth recipe by extending your experience in the kitchen. 2. Silent Reflection Silent reflection is a great way to get in touch with your emotions and thoughts. If you let your mind wander, there are many realizations and epiphanies that you can allow yourself to acknowledge. Cooking is a great place to let your mind wander as you perform the simple tasks, and be aware of where your thoughts take you. 3. Therapeutic Relaxation through Repetition Repetition is relaxing and therapeutic by focusing only on the task at hand. Cooking is full of repetitive action, from cutting, to peeling, to stirring, to grating, to mixing, and much more. 4. Mindfulness Merrium-Webster defines Mindfulness as: 1. the quality or state of being mindful 2. the practice of maintaining a nonjudgmental state of heightened or complete awareness of one’s thoughts, emotions, or experiences on a moment-to-moment basis; also: such a state of awareness. Cooking is a great activity in which to practice Mindfulness. Be present in the moment to take in the sensory information of the food you are cooking. The smells, the colors, the tastes, the feeling of the food, and the sounds are all senses to be aware of. What emotions do these experiences evoke? What thoughts do they bring to mind? Be aware of these emotions and thoughts, and acknowledge them. 5. Loving-Kindness Meditation The Loving-Kindness level of meditation takes the most focus and attention. You may need to work up to this level before you attempt it. You must develop a love for yourself first, and then work toward others. Infuse the food with love and kindness by actively reflecting on yourself or the loved ones you are cooking for as you cook. Love is the secret ingredient of the tastiest dishes, after all! Typically, you would visualize yourself or your loved ones smiling at you, and feeling happy. Visualization is just one form of the Loving-Kindness Meditation. To incorporate this into cooking, visualize yourself or your loved ones smiling and happy as they (or you) eat the food you have prepared.

FLOW #20 - Welcome to the Virtual Reality Metaverse to Improve Human Potential
476
You're listening to the 20th episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! Today's episode is about the current state of virtual reality and where it lies for future human augmentation for self-improvement and development. Please let me know how you like these daily FLOW episodes. - Virtual reality (VR) immerses users in a fully artificial digital environment. - Augmented reality (AR) overlays virtual objects on the real-world environment. - Mixed reality (MR) not just overlays but anchors virtual objects to the real world. The definition of virtual reality comes, naturally, from the definitions of both ‘virtual’ and ‘reality’. The definition of ‘virtual’ is near and reality is what we experience as human beings. So the term ‘virtual reality’ basically means ‘near-reality’. This could, of course, mean anything but it usually refers to a specific type of reality emulation. We know the world through our senses and perception systems.We all learned that we have five senses: taste, touch, smell, sight, and hearing. These are however only our most obvious sense organs. The truth is that humans have many more senses than this, such as a sense of balance for example. These other sensory inputs, plus some special processing of sensory information by our brains ensures that we have a rich flow of information from the environment to our minds. Everything that we know about our reality comes by way of our senses. In other words, our entire experience of reality is simply a combination of sensory information and our brains sense-making mechanisms for that information. It stands to reason then, that if you can present your senses with made-up information, your perception of reality would also change in response to it. You would be presented with a version of reality that isn’t really there, but from your perspective, it would be perceived as real. Something we would refer to as a virtual reality. So, in summary, virtual reality entails presenting our senses with a computer-generated virtual environment that we can explore in some fashion. In technical terms… Answering “what is virtual reality” in technical terms is straight-forward. Virtual reality is the term used to describe a three-dimensional, computer-generated environment which can be explored and interacted with by a person. That person becomes part of this virtual world or is immersed in this environment and whilst there, is able to manipulate objects or perform a series of actions. How is virtual reality achieved? Although we talk about a few historical early forms of virtual reality elsewhere on the site, today virtual reality is usually implemented using computer technology. There is a range of systems that are used for this purpose, such as headsets, omnidirectional treadmills and special gloves. These are used to actually stimulate our senses together in order to create the illusion of reality. This is more difficult than it sounds, since our senses and brains are evolved to provide us with a finely synchronized and mediated experience. If anything is even a little off we can usually tell. This is where you’ll hear terms such as immersiveness and realism enter the conversation. These issues that divide convincing or enjoyable virtual reality experiences from jarring or unpleasant ones are partly technical and partly conceptual. Virtual reality technology needs to take our physiology into account. For example, the human visual field does not look like a video frame. We have (more or less) 180 degrees of vision and although you are not always consciously aware of your peripheral vision, if it were gone you’d notice. Similarly when what your eyes and the vestibular system in your ears tell you are in conflict it can cause motion sickness. Which is what happens to some people on boats or when they read while in a car. If an implementation of virtual reality manages to get the combination of hardware, software and sensory synchronicity just right it achieves something known as a sense of presence. Where the subject really feels like they are present in that environment. Why have virtual reality? This may seem like a lot of effort, and it is! What makes the development of virtual reality worthwhile? The potential entertainment value is clear. Immersive films and video games are good examples. The entertainment industry is after all a multi-billion dollar one and consumers are always keen on novelty. Virtual reality has many other, more serious, applications as well. Wherever it is too dangerous, expensive or impractical to do something, in reality, virtual reality is the answer. From trainee fighter pilots to medical applications trainee surgeons, virtual reality allows us to take virtual risks in order to gain real-world experience. As the cost of virtual reality goes down and it becomes more mainstream you can expect more serious uses, such as education or productivity applications, to come to the fore. Virtual reality and its cousin augmented reality could substantively change the way we interface with our digital technologies. Continuing the trend of humanizing our technology. There are many different types of virtual reality systems but they all share the same characteristics such as the ability to allow the person to view three-dimensional images. These images appear life-sized to the person. Plus they change as the person moves around their environment which corresponds with the change in their field of vision. The aim is for a seamless join between the person’s head and eye movements and the appropriate response, e.g. change in perception. This ensures that the virtual environment is both realistic and enjoyable. Virtual reality is the creation of a virtual environment presented to our senses in such a way that we experience it as if we were really there. It uses a host of technologies to achieve this goal and is a technically complex feat that has to account for our perception and cognition. It has both entertainment and serious uses. The technology is becoming cheaper and more widespread. We can expect to see many more innovative uses for the technology in the future and perhaps a fundamental way in which we communicate and work thanks to the possibilities of virtual reality.

#90 - Nathan Chan | Origin of Foundr Magazine, a Multi-Million Dollar Media Entrepreneurship Company
2349
"I was launching it, literally just for fun." - Nathan Chan, Founder of Foundr Magazine. Foundr Magazine is a digital internet-based magazine app on the Apple and Google Play store targeted at young entrepreneurs and early upstarts. Featured hundreds of entrepreneurs like Arianna Huffington, Tony Robbins, Gary Vaynerchuk, Tim Ferriss, Richard Branson, Daymond John, and Seth Godin. Foundr is on a mission to inspire the world of the possibilities of entrepreneurship, and become the ultimate resource and guide for entrepreneurs. Our focus is on delving deep into the world of the entrepreneur focusing on their failures, challenges, processes and really trying to help our readers learn from successful entrepreneurs before them. Nathan started Foundr in March, 2013 with no knowledge about entrepreneurship, publishing, apps, editorial or design and a very small budget. Fast forward to now, Foundr is a top 10 ranked ‘Business & Investing’ magazine in the Appstore sitting alongside publications such as Forbes, Entrepreneur, Fortune, Fast Company and HBR. "When I started Foundr, I had no idea that I wanted to build a big startup or service millions of people. It was just like a side hustle project and yeah, it was a big jump going from IT to online marketing. I think more of the big jump though is not knowing anything about publishing a magazine and producing content. That’s been a very steep and big learning curve. We worked it out along the way and made it work purely off the fact that I think I have a pretty good eye on what people are interested in. I know what excites me tends to excite other people. From there, I just followed my gut. Before I started Foundr, I knew that podcasts were hot. I also identified that there wasn’t really a magazine in the space targeting aspiring novice-stage entrepreneurs, early-stage startup founders and also targeting young people. All the business publications out there go with the assumption that you’ve already started a business. I thought that it would be a brilliant idea to launch a digital magazine since I knew that print was, and still is to this day, a dying trade. I also had a lot of questions that I wanted to answer myself as an aspiring entrepreneur. I thought it would just be a ton of fun and a great side hustle project. I was really interested in marketing too and that’s a big passion piece of mine. So, taking all those things into consideration, we launched Foundr." - https://www.linkedin.com/in/nathanhchan/ - foundr.com Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram, Twitter or via email mark@vudream.com Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

FLOW #19 - Why Mindfulness Meditation Is The Most Important Life Skill for Self-Awareness
822
You're listening to the 19th episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! Today's episode is about the most impactful activity I participate in morning and night. Mindfulness meditation of course! A study from UCLA found that long-term meditators had better-preserved brains than non-meditators as they aged. Participants who’d been meditating for an average of 20 years had more grey matter volume throughout the brain — although older meditators still had some volume loss compared to younger meditators, it wasn’t as pronounced as the non-meditators. "We expected rather small and distinct effects located in some of the regions that had previously been associated with meditating," said study author Florian Kurth. "Instead, what we actually observed was a widespread effect of meditation that encompassed regions throughout the entire brain." One of the most interesting studies in the last few years, carried out at Yale University, found that mindfulness meditation decreases activity in the default mode network (DMN), the brain network responsible for mind-wandering and self-referential thoughts – a.k.a., “monkey mind.” The DMN is “on” or active when we’re not thinking about anything in particular, when our minds are just wandering from thought to thought. Since mind-wandering is typically associated with being less happy, ruminating, and worrying about the past and future, it’s the goal for many people to dial it down. Several studies have shown that meditation, through its quieting effect on the DMN, appears to do just this. And even when the mind does start to wander, because of the new connections that form, meditators are better at snapping back out of it. A review study last year at Johns Hopkins looked at the relationship between mindfulness meditation and its ability to reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety, and pain. Researcher Madhav Goyal and his team found that the effect size of meditation was moderate, at 0.3. If this sounds low, keep in mind that the effect size for antidepressants is also 0.3, which makes the effect of meditation sound pretty good. Meditation is, after all an active form of brain training. “A lot of people have this idea that meditation means sitting down and doing nothing,” says Goyal. “But that’s not true. Meditation is an active training of the mind to increase awareness, and different meditation programs approach this in different ways.” Meditation isn’t a magic bullet for depression, as no treatment is, but it’s one of the tools that may help manage symptoms. In 2011, Sara Lazar and her team at Harvard found that mindfulness meditation can actually change the structure of the brain: Eight weeks of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) was found to increase cortical thickness in the hippocampus, which governs learning and memory, and in certain areas of the brain that play roles in emotion regulation and self-referential processing. There were also decreases in brain cell volume in the amygdala, which is responsible for fear, anxiety, and stress – and these changes matched the participants’ self-reports of their stress levels, indicating that meditation not only changes the brain, but it changes our subjective perception and feelings as well. In fact, a follow-up study by Lazar’s team found that after meditation training, changes in brain areas linked to mood and arousal were also linked to improvements in how participants said they felt — i.e., their psychological well-being. So for anyone who says that activated blobs in the brain don’t necessarily mean anything, our subjective experience – improved mood and well-being – does indeed seem to be shifted through meditation as well. Having problems concentrating isn’t just a kid thing – it affects millions of grown-ups as well, with an ADD diagnosis or not. Interestingly but not surprisingly, one of the central benefits of meditation is that it improves attention and concentration: One recent study found that just a couple of weeks of meditation training helped people’s focus and memory during the verbal reasoning section of the GRE. In fact, the increase in score was equivalent to 16 percentile points, which is nothing to sneeze at. Since the strong focus of attention (on an object, idea, or activity) is one of the central aims of meditation, it’s not so surprising that meditation should help people’s cognitive skills on the job, too – but it’s nice to have science confirm it. And everyone can use a little extra assistance on standardized tests. A lot of people start meditating for its benefits in stress reduction, and there’s lots of good evidence to support this rationale. There’s a whole newer sub-genre of meditation, mentioned earlier, called Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts’ Center for Mindfulness (now available all over the country), that aims to reduce a person’s stress level, physically and mentally. Studies have shown its benefits in reducing anxiety, even years after the initial 8-week course. Research has also shown that mindfulness meditation, in contrast to attending to the breath only, can reduce anxiety – and that these changes seem to be mediated through the brain regions associated with those self-referential (“me-centered”) thoughts. Mindfulness meditation has also been shown to help people with social anxiety disorder: a Stanford University team found that MBSR brought about changes in brain regions involved in attention, as well as relief from symptoms of social anxiety. A growing number of studies has shown that, given its effects on the self-control regions of the brain, meditation can be very effective in helping people recover from various types of addiction. One study, for example, pitted mindfulness training against the American Lung Association's freedom from smoking (FFS) program, and found that people who learned mindfulness were many times more likely to have quit smoking by the end of the training, and at 17 weeks follow-up, than those in the conventional treatment. This may be because meditation helps people “decouple” the state of craving from the act of smoking, so the one doesn’t always have to lead to the other, but rather you fully experience and ride out the “wave” of craving, until it passes. Other research has found that mindfulness training, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), and mindfulness-based relapse prevention (MBRP) can be helpful in treating other forms of addiction.

FLOW #18 - Managing Social Anxiety | Introverts Guide to Parties & Gatherings
542
You're listening to the 18th episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! Today's episode is about how I beat and continue to manage my social anxiety as an introvert at social gatherings like parties with many people you don't know. Social anxiety is the fear of social situations that involve interaction with other people. You could say social anxiety is the fear and anxiety of being negatively judged and evaluated by other people. It is a pervasive disorder and causes anxiety and fear in most all areas of a person's life. It is chronic because it does not go away on its own. Only direct cognitive-behavioral therapy can change the brain, and help people overcome social anxiety. People with social anxiety are many times seen by others as being shy, quiet, backward, withdrawn, inhibited, unfriendly, nervous, aloof, and disinterested. Paradoxically, people with social anxiety want to make friends, be included in groups, and be involved and engaged in social interactions. But having social anxiety prevents people from being able to do the things they want to do. Although people with social anxiety want to be friendly, open, and sociable, it is fear (anxiety) that holds them back. The feelings that accompany social anxiety include anxiety, high levels of fear, nervousness, automatic negative emotional cycles, racing heart, blushing, excessive sweating, dry throat and mouth, trembling, and muscle twitches. In severe situations, people can develop a dysmorphia concerning part of their body (usually the face) in which they perceive themselves irrationally and negatively. Lack of professional and knowledgeable therapists is the biggest and most relevant problem to overcoming social anxiety. While it can be done, and a vast amount of clinical and research evidence supports this, overcoming social anxiety is difficult because of the scarcity of treatment facilities for people with this persistent anxiety disorder. Often, we are led to the conclusion that effective therapy -- whether from a psychologist or from a non-licensed person -- comes only from people who have experienced this disorder themselves. Twenty years of experience points to the fact that people who have lived with this disorder and overcome it, make the best group leaders. Please let me know how you like these daily FLOW episodes.

#88 - Elena Botelho | The CEO Next Door: The 4 Behaviors that Transform Ordinary People into World-Class Leaders
2865
Elena L. Botelho is a New York Times & WSJ Bestselling author. She grew up in Azerbaijan and Russia in a family of mathematicians and earned her MBA from Wharton. She has advised more than 200 CEOs and boards over nearly two decades, first as a strategy consultant at McKinsey and currently as a partner at ghSMART. New York Times Bestseller, Wall Street Journal Bestseller. Based on an in-depth analysis of over 2,600 leaders drawn from a database of more than 17,000 CEOs and C-suite executives, as well 13,000 hours of interviews, and two decades of experience advising CEOs and executive boards, Elena L. Botelho and Kim R. Powell overturn the myths about what it takes to get to the top and succeed. Their groundbreaking research was the featured cover story in the May-June 2017 issue of Harvard Business Review. It reveals the common attributes and counterintuitive choices that set apart successful CEOs—lessons that we can apply to our own careers. Much of what we hear about who gets to the top, and how, is wrong. Those who become chief executives set their sights on the C-suite at an early age. In fact, over 70 percent of the CEOs didn’t have designs on the corner office until later in their careers. You must graduate from an elite college. In fact, only 7 percent of CEOs in the dataset are Ivy League graduates--and 8 percent didn't graduate from college at all. To become a CEO you need a flawless résumé. The reality: 45 percent of CEO candidates had at least one major career blowup. What those who reach the top do share are four key behaviors that anyone can master: they are decisive; they are reliable, delivering what they promised when the promise it, without exception; they adapt boldly, and they engage with stakeholders without shying away from conflict. Based on this breakthrough study of the most successful people in business, Botelho and Powell offer career advice for everyone who aspires to get ahead. Based on research insights illustrated by real life stories from CEOs and boardrooms, they tell us how to: - Fast-track our career by deploying the career catapults used by those who get to the top quickly - Overcome the hidden handicaps to getting the job we want. - Avoid the 5 hazards that most commonly derail those promoted into a new role. For everyone who aspires to rise up through the organization and achieve their full potential, The CEO Next Door is an essential guide. - https://www.amazon.com/CEO-Next-Door-Behaviors-World-Class/dp/1101906499 - https://www.linkedin.com/in/elena-lytkina-botelho-3b72785/ - https://twitter.com/elbotelho?lang=en Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram, Twitter or via email mark@vudream.com Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

Today's episode is about future technology predictions that I have that I believe will fundamentally transform our world into a digital god zone. When we think about 2050 it seems like it is ages from now and we imagine a completely different world, but in reality, it is just 30 years from now and we can already know what will be possible to have by that time. We have a lot of environmental, social problems and let’s see how technology may solve them by 2050. Ray Kurzweil – the world’s foremost futurist, authoring bestsellers like “The Age of Spiritual Machines” and “How to Create a Mind.” He’s so influential that Google hired him to lead its artificial intelligence efforts. He is very well known for making predictions, which are right about 86% of the time. Please let me know how you like these daily FLOW episodes.

#87 - Allen Gannett | The Creative Curve: How to Develop the Right Idea, at the Right Time
1990
Big data entrepreneur Allen Gannett overturns the mythology around creative genius, and reveals the science and secrets behind achieving breakout commercial success in any field. We have been spoon-fed the notion that creativity is the province of genius -- of those favored, brilliant few whose moments of insight arrive in unpredictable flashes of divine inspiration. And if we are not a genius, we might as well pack it in and give up. Either we have that gift, or we don’t. But Allen shows that simply isn’t true. Recent research has shown that there is a predictable science behind achieving commercial success in any creative endeavor, from writing a popular novel to starting up a successful company to creating an effective marketing campaign. As the world’s most creative people have discovered, we are enticed by the novel and the familiar. By understanding the mechanics of what Gannett calls “the creative curve” – the point of optimal tension between the novel and the familiar – everyone can better engineer mainstream success. In a thoroughly entertaining book that describes the stories and insights of everyone from the Broadway team behind Dear Evan Hansen, to the founder of Reddit, from the Chief Content Officer of Netflix to Michelin star chefs, Gannett reveals the four laws of creative success and identifies the common patterns behind their achievement. Allen Gannett is the founder and CEO of TrackMaven, a marketing analytics service whose clients have included Microsoft, Marriott, Saks Fifth Avenue, Home Depot, Aetna, Honda, and GE. He has been on the “30 Under 30” lists for both Inc. and Forbes. He is a contributor for FastCompany.com and has an upcoming book The Creative Curve, on the disciplined pursuit of creativity, coming out in June 2018 from Currency, a division of Penguin Random House. He was also once a very pitiful runner-up on Wheel of Fortune. - https://amzn.to/2JtWdK2 - https://www.linkedin.com/in/allengannett/ - https://twitter.com/Allen Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram, Twitter or via email mark@vudream.com Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

Inspiration | Enable Your Own Conscious Reality Distortion Field
224
You are the Matrix. "I can tell you right now, today in this moment, I promise you the Matrix has you. It's our belief system. It is so ever-present, it is so ingrained into the fabric of who you are and the way you process data, you don't even notice it. This is the thing that impacts your life, it is your inability to see that your mindset controls everything.” - Tom Bilyeu Wow. Now, I didn’t really understand the notion of this internal-external reality mirroring concept until I heard Jason Silva say: "We know from Neuroscience, that reality is coupled to perception, and perception is skewed. So the reality in which we live normally, that analog reality has still has built in hundreds of cognitive slipages and biases, not to mention the cultural reality tunnel in which we live, not to mention the language that is our operating system.” I digged into this, and I found that the science recognizes that the brain has hundreds on hundreds of cognitive biases that literally construct, our reality to see how we see it and operate within it. Understand that you are actually creating and controlling your life in the thinnest sliced moments that you can even imagine. Everything you say, everything you do, every choice you make in those thinnest slices moments in life is like an architect building your life right before your very eyes." - Mary Shores Mmm interesting… My friend, Dr. Bobby Koneru stated: “In elementary school, I was the only Indian in my class and only one of a few through high school. Kids, not knowing better, can exclude those who are different. There were many times when I felt emotionally isolated. Our ancient brain specializes in assessing how others treat you. On that evidence, it renders a determination of your value and assigns you a status. If you are judged by your peers as low worth, neurotransmitters and chemicals are released to propagate that reality for you.” I had a similar story to Bobby. And when I changed my environment, when I started eating healthy fats, vegetables, seeds, nuts, exercising on a regular basis, sleeping 8 hours a day, meditate in order to train my attention muscle, surrounding myself with extraordinary people, changed from negativity to positivity…. “When you need to survive when you need to make something happen at all costs, your brain and the way you see the world starts to re-adjust." - Kevin Hong I literally saw a visual shift of reality happen in front of my eyes in a few months. The world went from literally black and white to a shiny glistening miracle I could look at all day. and that’s when I started understanding Steve Job’s reality distortion field - to italicize perception in his co-workers, to allow someone to see the world in a different way, an alternate universe than what’s possible - that’s our reality Life is a funhouse mirror - Tom Bilyeu and this isn’t just about being happy and positive all the time, as David Meltzer says: "Happy people don't get sick. Happy people don't hurt other people. There would be no destruction or diseases if everyone was truly happy."

FLOW #15 - Transformative Power of Gratitude | Giving Thanks Social Media Challenge
413
You're listening to the 15th episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! Today's episode is on the crushing healing power of expressing gratitude. Gratitude has been studied to improve physical, psychological and emotional health. A dose of gratitude a day can transform the way you perceive and experience the world. Here are 7 scientifically proven benefits: 1. Gratitude opens the door to more relationships. Not only does saying “thank you” constitute good manners, but showing appreciation can help you win new friends, according to a 2014 study published in Emotion. The study found that thanking a new acquaintance makes them more likely to seek an ongoing relationship. So whether you thank a stranger for holding the door or send a thank-you note to that colleague who helped you with a project, acknowledging other people’s contributions can lead to new opportunities. 2. Gratitude improves physical health. Grateful people experience fewer aches and pains and report feeling healthier than other people, according to a 2012 study published in Personality and Individual Differences. Not surprisingly, grateful people are also more likely to take care of their health. They exercise more often and are more likely to attend regular check-ups, which is likely to contribute to further longevity. 3. Gratitude improves psychological health. Gratitude reduces a multitude of toxic emotions, from envy and resentment to frustration and regret. Robert Emmons, a leading gratitude researcher, has conducted multiple studies on the link between gratitude and well-being. His research confirms that gratitude effectively increases happiness and reduces depression. 4. Gratitude enhances empathy and reduces aggression. Grateful people are more likely to behave in a prosocial manner, even when others behave less kindly, according to a 2012 study by the University of Kentucky. Study participants who ranked higher on gratitude scales were less likely to retaliate against others, even when given negative feedback. They experienced more sensitivity and empathy toward other people and a decreased desire to seek revenge. 5. Grateful people sleep better. Writing in a gratitude journal improves sleep, according to a 2011 study published in Applied Psychology: Health and Well-Being. Spend just 15 minutes jotting down a few grateful sentiments before bed, and you may sleep better and longer. 6. Gratitude improves self-esteem. A 2014 study published in the Journal of Applied Sport Psychology found that gratitude increased athletes’ self-esteem, an essential component to optimal performance. Other studies have shown that gratitude reduces social comparisons. Rather than becoming resentful toward people who have more money or better jobs—a major factor in reduced self-esteem—grateful people are able to appreciate other people’s accomplishments. 7. Gratitude increases mental strength. For years, research has shown gratitude not only reduces stress, but it may also play a major role in overcoming trauma. A 2006 study published in Behavior Research and Therapy found that Vietnam War veterans with higher levels of gratitude experienced lower rates of post-traumatic stress disorder. A 2003 study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology found that gratitude was a major contributor to resilience following the terrorist attacks on September 11. Recognizing all that you have to be thankful for —even during the worst times—fosters resilience. Please let me know how you like these daily FLOW episodes.

#85 - Robert Sutton | The A**hole Survival Guide: How to Deal with People Who Treat You Like Dirt
1989
Bob Sutton is a Stanford University professor and author of six management books, including the New York Times & Wallstreet Journal bestsellers, The No Asshole Rule and, Good Boss, Bad Boss. He is an IDEO Fellow and co-founder of the Stanford Technology Ventures Program and the Stanford Design Institute (known as the d.school). He lives in Menlo Park, California. If you're feeling stressed out, overtaxed, under-appreciated, bullied, or abused because you work with a jerk, learn how to avoid, outwit, and disarm assholes—today. Equally useful and entertaining, The Asshole Survival Guide delivers a cogent and methodical game plan when you find yourself working with a jerk—whether in the office, on the field, in the classroom, or just in life. Sutton starts with diagnosis—what kind of asshole problem, exactly, are you dealing with? From there, he provides field-tested, evidence-based, and sometimes surprising strategies for dealing with the rude, impolite, irritating, unpleasant, or just plain incompetent—avoiding them, outwitting them, disarming them, sending them packing, and developing protective psychological armor. Sutton even teaches readers how to look inward to stifle their own inner jackass. 
 
 Ultimately, this survival guide is about developing an outlook and personal plan that will help you preserve the sanity in your life, and will prevent all those perfectly good days from being ruined by some jerk. "This survival guide is here to help keep you from going insane. It’s full of science-driven tips and strategies on how to deal with nasty bosses, manipulative colleagues, or other general jerks in your life." — W Magazine "People are jerks. And there’s plenty of evidence to prove it in the very blunt self-help book called “The A—hole Survival Guide,” a scholarly source that teaches fed-up readers how to deal with co-workers, strangers and just about anyone who sucks." —Moneyish "Sutton offers a variety of techniques that people suffering the presence of difficult individuals at their work, in their sports teams or just in everyday life can employ to deal with them or fight back. . . This is a small book but it could play a big part in making us treat others better." —Forbes "If everyone had paid attention to the Stanford business professor's best-selling 2007 management manifesto, "The No Asshole Rule," there would be no need for a follow-up. Yet here we are." —Esquire The crowded genre of workplace bullying books features clever titles...the best of the authors in the category is Stanford Professor Robert Sutton, who published The No Asshole Rule a decade ago and returns now with a more fully developed plan of action." —The National Book Review "Sutton’s breezy writing style, combined with the wide array of anecdotes and stories from people who’ve written him about their difficulties, makes for an entertaining read...consider that the physical book itself might be a solution to an a-hole at work. Much like the effect Sutton’s first book reportedly has had, simply leaving The Asshole Survival Guide prominently on your desk may send all the signal you need." —SmartUp “In this most-welcome sequel to Sutton’s bestselling The No Asshole Rule, the author turns from an organization-wide perspective to an individual one, outlining strategies for dealing with difficult people at work.” —Publishers Weekly “Bob Sutton is very wise and very funny, AND he can tell you exactly how to handle the unfortunate reality that into every life a few assholes must fall. THE ASSHOLE SURVIVAL GUIDE is destined to become your go-to resource whenever you find yourself dealing with people who would treat you poorly.” —Susan Cain, New York Times bestselling author of QUIET “At last someone has provided clear steps for rejecting, deflecting, and deflating the jerks who blight our lives. Better still, that someone is the great Bob Sutton, which ensures that the information is useful, evidence-based, and fun to read.” —Robert Cialdini, author of New York Times bestsellers INFLUENCE and PRE-SUASION “No matter what industry or profession you work in, you will always encounter people who are unpleasant, off-putting, or downright self-centered. Thank goodness Bob Sutton has provided us with such a well-crafted guide for surviving these jerks. It is mandatory reading for anyone who strives to endure, escape, fend-off, and bring them down.” —Chip Conley, founder and past CEO of Joie de Vivre hotels, advisor and former Head of Global Hospitality and Strategy at Airbnb, author of four books including the New York Times best seller Emotional Equations. “With humor, understanding and comprehensive research – and an ah-ha moment on every page – this is a must-have for leaders and climbing stars alike, from the expert on the subject. Bravo!” —Marshall Goldsmith, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller TRIGGERS “This is the guide you need for handling the worst people in your life—and making sure they don’t rub off on you. If you’ve ever had a horrible boss, client, or colleague, this book is bursting with advice that’s often ingenious and always actionable. And if your world has been free of jerks, consider this an insurance policy.” —Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of GIVE AND TAKE and ORIGINALS, and coauthor of OPTION B “Assholes are like the weather—everybody complains about them but nobody ever does anything about them. Until, that is, Robert Sutton’s Asshole Survival Guide. Sutton offers a wealth of helpful, and dare I say wise suggestions about how to identify and deal with the assholes in your organization, or at least minimize the damage they do to the well-being and productivity of others. (I’d also suggest bringing it along to family reunions and PTA meetings.)” —Geoff Nunberg, University of California at Berkeley, author of Ascent of the A-Word: Assholism, the First Sixty Years. "One of the biggest impediments to achieving a great workplace is assholes. Their behavior creates a hostile work environment that leads to decreased engagement, productivity and employee loyalty. Bob Sutton has written a fantastic book that explains the severity of the problem and provides useful strategies for dealing with it.” —Paul Purcell, Chairman and former long-time CEO of Baird, ranked fourth on Fortune’s Top 100 Companies to Work For and renowned for its long-time “no assholes” policy. "Reading the Asshole Survival Guide made me wistful. If only Bob Sutton's book had been available to help me deal with the full complement of 1st-class assholes I've encountered in my 50-year professional life. No names shall be mentioned." —Tom Peters, co-author of the bestseller IN SEARCH OF EXCELLENCE "First, The No Asshole Rule alerted us to the problem. Now, The Asshole Survival Guide offers the solution. This book is a contemporary classic—a shrewd and spirited guide to reducing our exposure and protecting ourselves from the jerks, bullies, tyrants, and trolls who seek to dispirit and demean. Now more than ever, with civility and decency under attack, we desperately need this antidote to the a-holes in our midst.” —Daniel H. Pink, bestselling author of To Sell is Human and Drive "As much as we try to avoid assholes, inevitably they appear in our lives. Bob Sutton gives us a menu of clear, thoughtful, and practical solutions for surviving and thriving in those painful situations. With cutting-edge research and real-life examples that are thought-provoking and often hilarious, The Asshole Survival Guide is an indispensable resource.” —Gretchen Rubin, bestselling author of THE HAPPINESS PROJECT and BETTER THAN BEFORE "It's hard to know how to react to a jerk, so The Asshole Survival Guide is a Godsend. Obnoxious behavior is a double whammy. First, you feel mad at the other person. Next, you feel mad at yourself for your response / lack of response. It's being mad at yourself that is both hard to be aware of, and is most debilitating. With this brilliant and funny book, Bob Sutton saves you from fear, loathing, and self-loathing!" —Kim Scott, bestselling author of the New York Times bestseller, Radical Candor, cofounder of Candor, Inc, former executive at Google and Apple. - https://www.bobsutton.net/ - https://amzn.to/2kOFvr0 Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram, Twitter or via email mark@vudream.com Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

#84 - Scott Santens | Money for Nothing? The Truth About Universal / Unconditional Basic Income (UBI)
3817
Scott Santens is a writer and advocate of basic income for all; Citizen of Earth and New Orleans; Bachelor of Science in Psychology; Moderator of the /r/BasicIncome community on Reddit; Founder of the BIG Patreon Creator Pledge, and overall a great Human 2.0! Check out Scott's auto-bio here: ou may also know me as "2noame", or as "that basic income guy from the Atlantic article talking about fish", or "that guy on Huffington Post warning about the effects of self-driving trucks in an America without a basic income already in place", or that speaker who presented about the need for basic income at the first World Summit on Technological Unemployment, or that guy who talked about basic income with Nick Hanauer at Brookings. Basically, if you're spent any amount of time looking into the idea of an unconditional basic income, there's a good chance you've read something I've written. I'm a writer and now increasingly an activist spending as much time and resources I have working to spread awareness for the idea of a unconditional basic income (UBI) - one whose time has come here in the 21st century where technology is now forcing our hand. Without an income platform set just above the poverty level as a bare minimum, I believe poverty and inequality will continue to grow, the middle classes will continue to shrink, and the livelihoods of all but the top fifth of society will continue to slip away. But it doesn't have to be that way. We're better than that. We can turn all of this on its head, and instead of things continuing to get worse, we can make things better than they've ever been. We can reduce risk and so propel innovation and creativity to new heights. We can reduce fears of unemployment and purposely eliminate low-skill jobs better performed by machines, freeing us to intrinsically do all the work that drives us. We can stop wasting so many resources on fighting the fires of our lives, and instead prevent them from ever lighting in the first place. We need only make the choice. The path is ours to take. Starting in 2013, my most popular article I'd written about basic income became was "Why Should We Support the Idea of an Unconditional Basic Income?" It made Medium's Top 100 in June 2014, but it was surpassed by my article, "Self-Driving Trucks Are Going to Hit Us Like a Human-Driven Truck," in 2015 which was republished across multiple media outlets and has likely altogether garnered over 1 million views. In 2016, my article, "Deep Learning is Going to Teach Us All the Lesson of Our Lives: Jobs are for Machines," garnered over half a million views on Medium and was published in the Sunday edition of the Boston Globe. In 2017, my most read article was "The Real Story of Automation Beginning with One Simple Chart." When not writing articles related to basic income, I am further researching the idea, and reading and writing comments as a moderator of the basic income community on Reddit - (/r/BasicIncome), where I've helped grow the community from the less than 2,000 subscribers it had when I joined, to over 50,000 today. I do what I can there to help make it a central place for discussion and learning in hopes of gradually gaining momentum for the social movement it will require to eventually be realized. I also run multiple social media accounts in support of basic income: @BasicIncome, Basic Income on Facebook, @rBasicIncome, rBasicIncome on Facebook, and help with the social media outreach of the Basic Income Earth Network (BIEN), the U.S. Basic Income Guarantee Network (USBIG), and now Manna. One of my larger projects in 2014 was helping to organize a week-long series of Q&As; on Reddit (there known as AMAs) for International Basic Income Week with prominent proponents of basic income from all over the world. I repeated this in 2015 with another series of AMAs. Since joining Patreon, I have started my own blog focused on answering frequently asked basic income questions, and my own Facebook page to better spread basic income awareness, and am a contributor to Futurism, the World Economic Forum, TechCrunch, The Huffington Post and the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies (IEET). At this point I am looking to reach over 1,000 supporters here on Patreon, with a focus on small dollar amount patrons. As I explained in a blog post about security, it is a key emergent component of basic income, and therefore a basic income of $1,000 per month funded by 1,000 people is far more secure and stable than the same amount funded by 100 people. So please, if you support the work I'm doing thanks to the passion I have for helping make this idea happen in the world, please don't worry that $1 per month is too little. To the contrary, that and over 999 others doing the same, is extremely close to the security of a government provided basic income. And the support of 1,000 people here on Patreon will also show that much more support for the idea of basic income itself. If you would like to support my travel to various basic income-related events, I've also setup a separate crowdfund specifically for my travel expenses. For example, making it to each year's Basic Income Earth Network Congress and North American Basic Income Guarantee Congress is beyond the funding abilities of this Patreon focused on basic needs. Those kinds of travel expenses are above and beyond a basic income. - http://www.scottsantens.com/ - https://twitter.com/scottsantens - https://medium.com/@2noame - https://www.patreon.com/scottsantens Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram, Twitter or via email mark@vudream.com Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

#83 - Kevin Hong | Living Out of a Van for 2 Years and Building a $15M Company in the Process
2739
Kevin Hong is a columnist for Inc. Magazine. He has also contributed to CNBC, Forbes, and Huffington Post. During normal business hours, Kevin runs Cinema Intelligence as the CSO, a big data company which is a subsidiary of the Vista Group, (NZE:VGL). Prior to his current role, Kevin co-founded Dealflicks, a movie-ticketing platform that was valued up to $15m. On weekends, Kevin serves as an advisor to several promising startups and a mentor at the University of Chicago. As a 19 year-old college drop-out, I was making nearly $10,000/month. This was 2004 and despite just moving back from Korea at the age of 16 and speaking broken English, I managed to run a successful network marketing business selling outdated beepers and refurbished cell phones in underserved neighborhoods such as Compton and Inglewood. I had a knack for sales and I knew it. Several months into my business, someone poured gasoline on my car and burnt it to the ground. Although the eventual determination was that this bonfire was a random act of violence, my parents were traumatized by the experience and attributed the incident to my business. I went back to school to comfort them and for once to not be the “black sheep” of the family. My dexterity in people skills actualized into a successful stint in poker which transitioned into a career in finance. After I graduated from college in 2007, I became a retail stock broker during the Great Recession. The experience was surreal as several times I found myself comforting grown men who were crying on the phone as well as occasional death threats that occurred because of a rattled client who would blame anything or anyone but themselves for a wrong trade that was made in a stock such as Lehman or Bear Stearns. Itching to re-engage with my entrepreneurial aspirations, I teamed up with a client who had $75M in assets to launch a hedge fund in early 2009. Despite the resources we had, my client eventually had cold feet given the deteriorating market conditions along with the financial scandals such as Maddoff that popped up during this time. Determined to launch my own company, I began to build my own capital by trading options in my personal account. This resulted in a year of 118% in 2011, which provided me the capital along with the financial safety net to help launch Dealflicks.com. (A movie ticketing platform) In 2012, we launched Dealflicks using the most unimaginable bootstrapping methodologies. My mini-claim to fame was building a sales team of up to 5 members out of a van for 2 years, which resulted in 750 theater locations, $7m/yr in revenue annualized, nearly $5m in funding, and countless media coverage. After a co-founder break-up, which led to my departure at Dealflicks, I decided to return my career to the corporate world. I became the chief sales officer of Cinema Intelligence (A Vista Group company, ticker: VGL) and a contributing writer for various media outlets such as Forbes, Huffington Post, Film Journal, and many more. My unique experience in Wall St, Silicon Valley, Hollywood, start-ups, and corporate has given me not only great insight into the world of business but also a wide range of experiences from acting as a distribution consultant for a hollywood film, mentoring for the University of Chicago’s entrepreneurship program as a current MBA student, to coaching executives on sales, marketing, and business development. - https://www.amazon.com/Kevin-Hong/e/B0785DGHY7/ref=dp_byline_cont_ebooks_1 - http://www.outlierapproach.com/ - https://www.linkedin.com/in/kevinhshong/ Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram, Twitter or via email mark@vudream.com Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

FLOW #13 - 6 Actions To Take When Your Life Is Seemingly Falling Apart
1040
You're listening to the 13th episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! Today's episode is on one of the greatest topics I've ever covered. Happiness & positivity are easy when everything is going great, but what about when you are facing pain? You can do three things: 1. We can deny that things are falling apart 2. We can accept that things are falling apart and add more energy to the same way of seeing 3. We can ask ourselves, what new is trying to be born within me? Actions to Take: 1. Be Mindful and Meditate Mindfulness meditation is the most impactful activity I do every single day. If you are looking for a sense of direction and solid foundation to build an integral character...this is for you. Meditation teaches you discipline, increases flow, and allows you to slow your mind down and become aware of your thoughts. Once you get your mind right, you can get your life right. Most of the times we are so blindsided on an issue that we focus our energy on the initial negative narrative. Step back and revisit the situation and you will often find your problems have changed or shifted position over your mind. Learning can help expand your perspective which is the layer on reality that is always late to the game and causes problems. Meditation decreases the stress produced by your body and improves the areas of your brain responsible for empathy and love. I used to think meditation was a hippie gimmick as an excuse to sit around and do nothing. Once I started meditating, I realized I was wrong and this bad perception of meditation has negatively harmed my life. I recommend you do a little bit of research on your own. Look up different types of meditation and some scientific studies that show the benefits of meditating. Please don’t say “I can’t meditate because I can’t clear my mind”. Of course, you can’t because you are only human. Mindfulness meditation isn’t about “clearing your head”. I recommend downloading Headspace on the app store. Give meditation a try and let me know how it works out for you in the comments in a couple weeks! I am also advocating for mindfulness throughout your daily life. When you are walking do you feel your feet move back and forth to move you across a massive space rock? When you are eating pay attention and smell and taste your food. Don’t watch or listen to anything. Start practicing mindfulness in all your activities. PAY ATTENTION! 2. Put Your Head Down and Work “Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.” — Martin Luther King Last summer I was giving my sister a hand moving to New York from Massachusetts. We woke up early at 5 am and packed everything she needed into the U-Haul truck. On our way we stopped by Dunkin Donuts to get some caffeinated drinks. I started thinking to myself “Wow I’m about to drive 4 hours to New York and then move heavy stuff. I stopped myself. Observed myself and the situation that I was in objectively. I told myself “I’m Mark and I’m going to drive for 4 hours. This is it. This is happening.” I soon realized I was in a Zen state. Driving for hours wasn’t actually bad but I automatically perceived it as something awful and grueling. Right when I paused and realized I was in an automatic trance, my mindset was no longer tired or irritated. I was happy because I was about to go on an awesome adventure! I learned a lot from this experience. I had great conversations with my sister and improved my driving skills. I also worked out a couple problems in the back of my head in the background. Moral of the story is, sometimes it’s best to relax, put your head down and do your job. Don’t give yourself the ability to use this event as an excuse for not accomplishing your tasks. You are better than that. Of course, this is not a blanket statement. Some situations we are completely unable to do normal tasks. I also don’t recommend using this advice as a way to do stuff you don’t want to be doing. If you work a 9-5 and you hate your life and use this for complacency....DON’T use this. 3. Cultivate a Rich Social Network You act differently around people. Don’t believe me? What would you do if I told you that your entire identity is based on the perception of a perception you interact with every day. Remove the setting and the character is removed. That being said, hang out with good friends that treat you right and are a support system for you. Don’t hang out with people to just complain about your horrible life. You can talk about what’s going on with you but make the most of it and focus on how you can embrace change. We are social beings. It said that emotional pain is actually worse for your body than physical pain. Isolation is one of the worst things you can for someone’s health and psyche. Go out with friends that you genuinely like to spend time with. Hang out with winners and people who don’t put you down. Be honest with yourself and your friends will be honest back. If you honestly open up to your parents, family, friends you will be surprised by how much support you receive. 4. Help As Many People As Possible Your life is dictated by brain chemicals. When you get a hug or feel angry, those are different chemicals being excreted in your brain to make you feel that way. We all have biological wiring in our brains that assure we function properly for the most part. Here are some ways Altruism and giving back to others can improve your life by Psychology Today. Feeling of satisfaction - just because you're being altruistic doesn't mean that you can't or shouldn't feel good about it. You're making a difference in someone else's life and that should make you feel good. There is no reason to try to suppress that feeling, think of it as a perk. Helps you feel more grateful for what you have - it's not unusual for people to experience a "grass is greener" feeling from time to time. However, because good deeds are often done for those who are going through a difficult time, the experience can serve to remind helpers that their own lives are actually pretty good. Sometimes, actually seeing what is on "the other side of the fence" can make you feel thankful for what you have. Distracts you from your own problems - focusing on someone else can actually pull you away from your own self-preoccupation and your own problems. In fact, studies have found that when people with medical conditions (e.g., cancer, chronic pain) "counsel" other patients with those same conditions, the "counselors" often experience less depression, distress, and disability. Improves physical health - research has discovered that helping others can not only improve your mental health, it also can improve your physical well-being. Studies have found that volunteers tend to live longer and often have better physical health than non-volunteers. (Of course, there are other variables associated with good-deed-doers that may at least partially account for these findings. More research is being done to try to better understand all of the factors that may play a role.) This fundamental feel good wiring when we help others is programmed into us because Nature rewards us for working with our tribe to ensure a higher survival rate. Regardless of what the physiological stipulations are we should be aware of this phenomenon and use it to our advantage. 5. You’re Going to Make it No Matter What “No matter how bad it is, or how bad it gets I’m going to make it” - Les Brown Think back to the hardest time of your life. Doesn’t seem so bad when you look back at it, right? Even in the hardest moments in your life when you think your life is imploding it’s (most often) not true. Think back to an even harder time in your life and build your self-esteem. I conquered that event. It was very hard but I still made it out on top over time. You are a warrior you just haven’t realized it yet. Repeat to yourself “I’m going to make it no matter what” over and over again. Over time, this will teach you to go above and beyond and conquer your fears and limitations. 6. Write, Write, Write One of my favorite methods to benefit myself in seemingly hopeless situations is to write. This method takes scenarios in my head and maps them out on paper to prove how not serious this event is and gives me some perspective. Some Ideas to Journal: Free Flow Consciousness - All of your streamlined thoughts Fears and potential threats The good in the situation Your strengths & weaknesses The intention for each situation What you're grateful for! A written analysis allows you to look at your issues objectively and from many different perspectives. I do this when I need clarity on something. Drawing this out with a piece of paper helps my mind abstractly extract ideas and connect the dots. Please let me know how you like these daily FLOW episodes.

FLOW #12 - FOOD | Most Abused Drug and The Key Element That Controls Your Energy
575
You're listening to the 12th episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! Today's episode is about one of the most simple yet confusing commodity in today's world, FOOD! THIS IS THE DIET THAT I FOLLOW! 10 Guidelines for the Bulletproof Diet 1. Eliminate sugar AND alcohol. Sugar comes in many hidden forms, including fruit juice, sports drinks — even sauces and salad dressings. Even naturally-derived sweeteners like honey, maple syrup, and agave can mess with your blood sugar and make you fat. 2. Replace sugar with the right fats. Replacing sweeteners with healthy fats like grass-fed butter, ghee, Brain Octane Oil, XCT Oil, cocoa butter, and coconut oil reduces cravings and gives you more energy. Avoid bad fats like corn, soy, and canola oil and unstable polyunsaturated fats like walnut, flax, and peanut oil. 3. Switch to grass-fed meat and wild caught seafood. The quality of your food matters. Choose pastured, grass-fed meat like beef, lamb, and bison. Pastured eggs, pork, chicken, turkey, and duck also make good clean sources of protein. Eat significant amounts of fish and other seafood, but make sure your fish is wild — never farmed! 4. Remove grains and gluten. Wheat is a particularly important grain to avoid because of the many negative effects of gluten, a protein found in wheat and other grains. But this category also includes corn, oats, barley, and other cereal grains. 5. Eliminate all synthetic additives, colorings, and flavorings. This includes aspartame, MSG, dyes, and artificial flavorings. 6. Eliminate legumes such as peanuts, beans, and lentils. If you must have beans, soak, sprout (or ferment), and cook them yourself. 7. Remove all processed, homogenized, and pasteurized dairy. Most dairy products contain casein and lactose, two compounds that cause inflammation and digestive distress in many people. Grass-fed butter has much lower levels of casein and lactose because of the churning process, which removes the buttermilk from the butterfat. Most people feel a lot better removing milk, cheese, and other dairy products entirely, but if you want to keep some dairy products, opt for full-fat, raw dairy from grass-fed cows. 8. Switch to organic fruits and vegetables. This is more important for some plants than others. You can find a full updated list from the Environmental Working Group. 9. Cook your food gently, if at all. Smoking, frying, and grilling can damage the proteins in your meat and produce carcinogens that adhere to the surface. Best to cook your food slow and low, at or under about 320°F. Do not use microwaves or fry your food. 10. Limit fruit consumption to 1–2 servings per day. Fruits are not vegetables. Favor low fructose-containing fruits like berries and lemons over higher sugar fruits like watermelon and apples. Vegetables (6–11 Servings a Day!) Bok Choy Brussel Sprouts Fennel Celery Asparagus Broccoli Cauliflower Avocado Cucumber Cilantro Kale Collards Spinach Cabbage Radishes Zucchini Lettuce Summer/Winter/Butternut Squash Artichokes Green Beans Carrots Leeks Green Onion Parsley Onion Shallots Eggplant Peppers Tomatoes Peas Nuts & Legumes (2–3 Servings) Coconut Olives Almonds Cashews Hazelnuts Macadamia Pecans Walnuts Chestnuts Dairy (2–3 Servings) Organic Grass Fed Butter or Ghee Organic Grass Fed Cream Organic Grass Fed Full Fat Raw Milk or Yogurt Protein (4–6 Servings) Grass Fed Beef Grass Fed Lamb Pastured Eggs Low-mercury Wild Fish (Anchovies, Haddock, Petrale Sole, Sardines, Sockeye Salmon, Summer Flounder, Trout) Wild Caught Seafood Pastured Pork Pastured Duck and Goose Starch Sweet Potato Yam Pumpkin Butternut Squash White Rice Taro Cassava Plantain Fruit Blackberries Cranberries Raspberry Strawberry Blueberries Pineapple Tangerine Grapefruit Pomegranate Please let me know how you like these daily FLOW episodes.

#81 - Sam Demma | 18 Year Old Changing the World One Small Consistent Action at a Time - Environment
2353
Sam Demma is an 18-year-old founder of an environmentally community-conscious organization, PickWaste in Toronto, Canada. PickWaste is a community initiative that was started out of the necessity to clean up mother earth. We make an impact by cleaning up local landscapes for one hour, once a week. It began as four young men but has quickly spread throughout the community. There are now over 200 people on our email list, and each week we clean up alongside 15-20 local volunteers. We are a team and a family, one that welcomes all members of any age. At PickWaste we know that nature and the vitality of the human species is one and the same. When we pollute Mother Nature, we are in turn causing much unnecessary suffering to ourselves. - The oceans we fill with chemicals is ultimately the water we will drink and the fish we will eat! - The air we pollute with greenhouse gases and smoke from industrial factories is ultimately the air that we will breathe in! - The soil we spray with pesticides and fertilizers is ultimately growing the vegetables and fruits that we will eat! This is why we believe there are so many diseases and degenerative conditions in today's society. This is why we're so passionate about PickWaste and saving the environment, and essentially saving all of humanity! We are big believers in starting small towards producing massive change, and there is no better way to start fixing this problem than by picking up trash. Garbage clean up is so simple, yet so effective. Simple because everyone can participate and there are no educational requirements. Effective because the law of social proof states that when people observe others partaking in any activity they will feel more inclined to join themselves! Its these little consistent actions that will change our planet. X-Navy Seal, William H. McRaven, said that if you do the little things right you can change your life, and then change the world. We believe that picking up garbage is the little thing that can change our community, and then the world will follow! • Completed 40 cleanups in the city of Pickering • Filled over 490 bags of litter • Spoken in front of 16 crowds to spread awareness - pickwaste.ca - https://www.linkedin.com/in/sam-demma/ - https://www.instagram.com/sam_demma/ Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram, Twitter or via email mark@vudream.com Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

Becoming a Human 2.0 Motivation - The Moment My Entire Life Changed
293
The first Humans 2.0 motivation track that I think many of you will enjoy. In this motivational speech, I walk down my thought process that led to my entire life changing. If you liked this please let me know or if you have any feedback in general on social media please. After hearing story, after story, after story, of great human beings, entrepreneur’s, change-makers, industry-shapers my mind started to shake. I didn’t know what it was but my mind wanted more. I was hungry. I was STARVING, not for food but for something else I couldn’t put my tongue on. and then I heard a Steve Jobs quote that said: When you grow up you tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Wow, isn’t that so true I thought. Kids, the people that will run this world are currently being stored away in 6 x 5 boxes and are taught to raise their hand to request permission to use the bathroom. Children are taught to obey, not to challenge or think creatively in an ever-changing and rapidly evolving technological environment. Wow. Steve Jobs continued: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it… Once you learn that, you'll never be the same again Indeed. Steve Jobs was right on as always. I was never the same again. And you’ll never be the same again. But only if you decide right now in this moment. See, because here’s the thing. Mankind’s infinite intelligent mind has the capacity to draw from both side of the spectrum. 2 governing paradoxical forces of reality….chaos and order. Both are needed. and if many of us actually acted on what we thought to do we would be where our soul and heart want us to be... and see I wasn’t in that position. I had always known what I wanted to do deep down but it was drowned by opinions, rumors, and other acts upon my own volition. I rejected my internal self like we all do and I listened to the outside external world for years without consulting myself first. And what happens when you do that? haha Well if you have a strong soul it’ll want to come out screaming and it may destroy you in the process. and the process…it’s painful..but it’s priceless. and that’s when I came to the realization that My Life is an exact reflection of all the decisions and choices that I’ve been making for years and where I am is exactly where I wanted to be. and that’s the question I pondered in my mind. I realized I needed to stand up for myself, I realized that I needed to love myself, I realized that I needed to fight for what I believe is the truth in this world. I realized that I needed to take responsibility for all of the good and bad in my life. I need to own everything and have self-worth innately in me and live a life of service and become a Human version 2.0! As Jay Samit once said: Are you living life or just paying bills until you die?

FLOW #11 - Self-Inquisitive Questions that Fundamentally Changed the Course of My Life
1013
You're listening to the 11th episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! It's about the self-inquisitive questions that you can ask yourself to upgrade your life. If I’ve learned anything the past year it’s that there are no answers in life, only better questions. I love questions. Questions are self-inquisitive tools that we can access at any time to branch out and connect more elements in our life to pave the path for transformation. Based on my experience I’ve learned that often times the limitations that hold us back are a mix of assumptions, beliefs, and cognitive biases. I truly believe questions can remove the ground from under those assumption stacks and if coupled with curious action can make for a fruitful catalyst. Questions are broad tools. I use questions to get myself centered at the beginning of the day and really give my mind the opportunity to think and imagine which in turn gets me motivated to grind each and every single day. Questions have the potential to swing the doors of curiosity wide open in each every moment of daily life. I started experimenting with this podcast with an ending element to the show to give the audience a more actionable thought or tool to utilize in life. I ask all of my extremely successful and impactful guests to leave the audience with a self-inquisitive question that you can ask yourself throughout the day and really ponder. Check out this list of questions and let me know which one is your favorite. I also included my own questions that I ask myself every day to optimize my 24 hours. Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired and what are you going to do about it? - Leonard Kim Are you living life or just paying bills until you die? - Jay Samit Was I inauthentic enough today? (talking about body language) - Mark Bowden Why am I really listening to this podcast or reading this book? - Bryan Falchuk If I can tell no one, do I still want to do this, and if that's the case then you might have found something that you really like to do! - Jeff Haden What are you willing to do for others? - Dave Meltzer As you're going about your life today, doing things today, just ask yourself "why am I doing this?", "Why is this happening" and then love it. - Sonny Tannan What are you waiting on? - Jake Jordan Are you at your full potential and what are the barriers getting in your way? - Rob Dube Can you figure out creative ways to leverage your message and stand out from all the noise? - Neil Patel What do you want your tombstone to say? - Ira Israel How can we be kinder to ourselves and our ecosystems? - Dr. Heidi Forbes Oste What would be good today to take into yourself? Dr. Rick Hanson Why are you here on this planet at this time? - James Hanusa & Alison Raby What are you grateful for? - Brendan Cutuli What difference can I make today that will contribute to an extraordinary humanity? - Diane Curran What do you want in life? (define with a specific goal) - Marcus Aurelius Name one thing that isn't affected by how much you sleep? - Dr. Kirk Parsley What is the story of your life? - Kent Bye Ask yourself in every moment what else is also true? - Cianna Stewart Who does your body work for? - Tammy Wise What am I doing to improve the world today, not tomorrow? - Reid Bangert What can you build that will be remembered in two generations? - Jason Feifer What is my heart and soul trying to communicate with me? - Isabel Hundt Are you doing what you really want to do? I think many of us are doing what we think we should do but are you doing what you want to do? - Fraser Cameron How am I earning the right to be here on this planet? - Puya Abolfathi Where are the boundaries on your experience that you didn't agree to? - Conner Moore If today was your last day on earth, would you be happy with what you're about to do today? - Ray Ahn What makes you feel most alive? Do more of that! - Dave Schools If you could choose one thing that you could forget what would that be and why? - Viktor Mayer-Schönberger My Own Questions Why do I wake up in the morning and do what I do? Which path will I choose today? The right path or the easy way out? Who am I? What do I want to wake up in the morning and do every day if it created $0 and nobody followed me? What are my pillars/foundation in life? What do I need to do today that will bring me closer to whom I want to be tomorrow Which activities give me the most energy in life?

#79 - Art Barter | Learning Servant Leadership to Transform Organizations & People from the Inside Out
3068
Art Barter is the Founder and CEO, Servant Leadership Institute and Owner and CEO, Datron World Communications, Inc. Art and I talk about the power of serving your team. Using his passion for servant leadership, Art Barter was able to demonstrate the power of this leadership technique, not by lecturing or writing about it, but by doing it first. After purchasing Datron World Communications in 2004, he began to dismantle the company's traditional power-led management style and replaced it with the servant leadership model. After years of hard work, not only were the employees of Datron happier, they were more efficient. As a result, Datron grew from a $10 million company to a $200 million company in just 6 years. In order to spread his passion for servant leadership, Art founded the Servant Leadership Institute in 2010. Since its inception, the Institute has developed a powerful curriculum with over 45 hours of training, more than half a dozen books and booklets, as well as webinars, podcasts and articles all geared toward empowering others to become effective servant leaders. “How you get the results is more important than the results themselves.” From the individual contributor all the way up to the CEO, every person deserves to unlock his or her full potential. Through his leadership of Datron World Communications and the success stories of other businesses that have risen to the challenge of servant leadership through his influence, Art Barter has shown that servant leadership can take an ordinary company and make it extraordinary. Art's passion for servant leadership has earned him a spot in the top 30 leaders named to the John C. Maxwell Leadership Awards in 2015, as well as a Trust Top Thought Leader for both 2017and 2018 by the Trust Across America organization. - https://www.servantleadershipinstitute.com/founder-art-barter - https://www.linkedin.com/in/art-barter-9b63791a/ Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram, Twitter or via email mark@vudream.com Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

#78 - Viktor Mayer-Schönberger | Reinventing the Capitalist Economy in the Age of Big Data and Digital Disruption
2031
Viktor Mayer-Schönberger is the Professor of Internet Governance and Regulation at the University of Oxford. His research focuses on the role of information in a networked economy. Earlier he spent ten years on the faculty of Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. Professor Mayer-Schönberger has published seven books, as well as over a hundred articles (including in Science) and book chapters. In modern history, the story of capitalism has been a story of firms and financiers. That's all going to change thanks to the Big Data revolution. Data is replacing money as the driver of market behavior. Big finance and big companies will be replaced by small groups and individual actors who make markets instead of making things: think Uber instead of Ford, or Airbnb instead of Hyatt. This is the dawn of the era of data capitalism. Will it be an age of prosperity or of calamity? This book provides the indispensable roadmap for securing a better future. His most recent book is the best-selling "Big Data" (co-authored with Kenneth Cukier). Before that he wrote the awards-winning 'Delete: The Virtue of Forgetting in the Digital Age' (Princeton University Press 2009). Ideas proposed in the book have now become official policy, e.g. of the European Union. A native Austrian, Professor Mayer-Schönberger founded Ikarus Software in 1986, a company focusing on data security, and developed Virus Utilities, which became the best-selling Austrian software product. He was voted Top-5 Software Entrepreneur in Austria in 1991 and Person-of-the-Year for the State of Salzburg in 2000. - https://twitter.com/Viktor_MS - https://www.linkedin.com/in/viktormayerschoenberger/ - https://www.amazon.com/Reinventing-Capitalism-Age-Big-Data/dp/046509368X Please do NOT hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram, Twitter or via email mark@vudream.com Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

FLOW #10 - Conquering Your Inner Demons To Work For You To Get What You Want in Life
976
You're listening to the 10th episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! It's about conquering the Inner Demons that haunt you to work for you To Get What You Want! This is FROM QUORA! An inner demon is something that you personally struggle with your own mind. It could be created by a situation that led you to believe you need to hide a part of you and you, in turn, act differently to seem alright, or it could be caused by circumstances that make you feel an underlying belief that limits you. The limiting and/or depressive (negative) nature of inner demons is what gives their name meaning. It is an inner belief, set of ideas or understanding about life that when talked about seems easy for others to deal with, but when trying to work around it yourself, manifest past it or just try to be alone with it, you feel you are at war with your own mind. Many have demons and finally break through them, while some never do. It is always something that one must understand and repair on their own, as it is in their mind alone that the war rages. No matter the supportive and obvious words of others, we fight the battle alone and win by our own mind’s strength and ingenuity. When we eliminate our demons, we seem to have better inner dialog and feel better at negotiating life’s innate difficulties. When in control, your demon causes you to feel ill at ease and constantly bothered no matter where you end up in society. Rich or poor inner demons are not always seen by everyone or anyone. However, if you are around someone long enough, their demons can change how that person normally acts, changing into a person you do not recognize for no apparent reason.

Conner and his guests explore the beautiful mess called life with unapologetic authenticity and no shortage of strong language. Unedited, ridiculous, and impactful all wrapped up in one big sexy show. From Bible-Belt town to living and then escaping the American Dream, Conner Moore can now be found exploring consciousness, making podcasts, lifting heavy, and changing lives at Onnit – a company dedicated to Total Human Optimization. After his first business venture as a gym owner began to fall apart, Conner found himself cleaning the gym listening to Alan Watts and starting to wonder if there wasn’t more to life than he’d been led to believe. Three months of living hand-to-mouth, combined with some powerful psychedelic experiences, changed his perspective on the world, which he shares with raw honesty in this interview. The Pleasure Monkey Life (Realness Media) was created with this intention by people who felt the gap between good marketing and living a full life. We've lived too long letting others dictate our experience. If we invest in understanding ourselves, we can bring the best of us to the world, and that might just make some kind of difference.

FLOW #9 - 8 Natural & Effective Ways I Fight Anxiety Without Drugs or Side-Effects
934
You're listening to the 9th episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! Life can get messy at times and as humans, we need to release stress to be calmer sometimes. Don't let your anxiety get to its last blow where you start having panic attacks and other bad events. "Fear is inevitable, I have to accept that, but I cannot allow it to paralyze me." 1. Sleep 8 hours 2. meditation 3. Journaling 4. Exercise 5. Cold Shower 6. 6 Breath Exercise 7. Don’t Eat Chemicals 8. Consistently Learn and Immerse Myself Several studies show that there is a connection between the diet choices and psychology, physiology and behavior. Dietary choices impact a person from the moment he or she is born, to adult life. Consuming too many or too little calories can increase anxiety symptoms and other psychological or emotional disorders. (6) Also, poor diet can lead to many anxiety symptoms, including moodiness, fatigue and abnormal blood sugar levels that cause nervousness and the jitters. A poor diet can also lead to weight gain. And this can impact your body image and bring on feelings of worthlessness and self-doubt. Deep breathing is one of the simplest, most effective ways to calm yourself down in the midst of an anxiety-induced freakout. It stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which calms the fight or flight response and helps neutralize stress and anxiety. Albertson suggests trying a simple 4-7-8 breathing technique: Exhale completely, inhale through your nose for a count of 4 seconds, hold it in for a count of 7 seconds, and exhale through your mouth for 8 seconds. Repeat about five times, or as needed. To maintain normal blood sugar levels and improve your anxiety symptoms, stay away from refined foods, including baked goods (like pastries and cookies), sweetened beverages, fast foods, fried foods, processed meat and refined grains (which can be found in cereals and packaged breads). A 2013 randomized controlled trial published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry found that mindfulness meditation had a beneficial effect on anxiety symptoms and improved stress reactivity and coping mechanisms when faced with a stress challenge. (24) If you’re new to this, try guided meditation as one of your natural remedies for anxiety, which is available on YouTube and podcasts. It will help to reduce your cortisol levels, improve your sleep quality, boost your productivity at home and at work, and treat your anxiety. Regular physical activity helps to improve sleep quality, reduce inflammation, boost confidence, improve energy levels and ease stress and tension. People with anxiety can benefit from exercises like yoga and tai chi because they promote relaxation and involve deep breathing techniques that help to reduce stress and muscle tension. Researchers at the University of Berkeley found that a lack of sleep can amplify anticipatory anxiety by stimulating regions in the brain that are associated with emotional processing. This means sleep deprivation can contribute to common anxiety symptoms. These symptoms include excessive worrying, and by restoring proper sleep patterns, people with anxiety can reduce feelings of fear, worry and tension. (23) Aim to get 7–9 hours of sleep every night in order to reduce stress, balance your hormones, prevent moodiness and reduce fatigue. You can also diffuse lavender or Roman chamomile essential oil in your bedroom to help induce relaxation.

2918
Isabel Hundt is the author of The Power of Faith-Driven Success and a certified Vision & Transformation Coach, international speaker, and ambassador of Global Presence Leadership. From a young age, Isabel experienced the world from a bird’s-eye view, seeing life from a different perspective. Now she uses her gift by combining the knowledge of sociology, psychology, and neuroscience with aspects of emotional intelligence. She travels to conferences and universities to share her inspiring and enlightening message of tuning in to our true selves. Isabel is a proud Christ follower, wife, and mother to son Jonah. When she’s not helping people follow their dreams, Isabel practices kickboxing and body combat. Isabel and I talk about what being an empath really means and how people can start to realize their own internal potential in life. In order to define what an Empath really is....check out some of the information below from Psychology Today: - Empaths are naturally giving, spiritually open, and good listeners. If you want heart, empaths have got it. Through thick and thin, these world-class nurturers will be there for you. But they can easily have their feelings hurt, too: Empaths are often told that they are “too sensitive” and need to "toughen up." - Empaths are highly attuned to other people’s moods, good and bad. They feel everything, sometimes to an extreme. They take on negativity such as anger or anxiety, which can be exhausting for them. If they are around peace and love, though, their bodies take these on and flourish. - Empaths become overwhelmed in crowds, which can amplify their empathy. They tend to be introverted and prefer one-to-one contact or small groups. Even if an empath is more extroverted they may prefer to limit how much time they spend in a crowd or at a party. - Empaths are big-hearted people and try to relieve the pain of others: a homeless person holding a cardboard "I'm hungry" sign at a busy intersection, a hurt child, a distraught friend. It's natural to want to reach out to these people and ease their pain. But empaths don't stop there. Instead, they take it on—suddenly they're the one feeling drained or upset when they felt fine before.

FLOW #8 - Learning How to Harness the Innate Power of Productive Obsession
855
You're listening to the 8th episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! As crazy people, when we start something...we do not stop. Get obsessed with everything you want in your life and watch what happens in your life. “Obsession is the wellspring of genius and madness.” - Michel de Montaigne A productive obsession arises from our interests, passions, and meaning-making needs. An unproductive obsession arises from our doubts, fears, and anxieties. Because we're a petty anxious species, most of our obsessions tend to be of the unproductive variety. For most people, it takes a bit of practice and intentionality to create productive obsessions, whereas unproductive obsessions tend to arise of their own accord out of our anxieties. The power of obsession is so immense that one could harness it to achieve the most impossible, in a flick. Often, the word obsession is perceived in a negative glance. This makes most of us deprived of the achievements which could be made through the use of this mental asset. Obsession is the repetitive thought and compulsion is the action following this repetitive thought. It’s a fire ignited within the mind; always flaring, always motivating the action. Have we ever realized what all could one achieve if one is capable of instigating a positive obsession and trapping it to fuel the progressive action? Obsession makes the people forget all their limitations and practical barriers- be it social, psychological or physical. Just a clumsy state and the goal in mind; a focused approach; complete focus; an absolute state of oneness; no distractions!

#70 - Reid Bangert | Revolutionizing Healthcare with Bella VR, a Virtual Reality Platform that Helps Patients Deal with Anxiety and Pain
2040
Reid H. Bangert is the President of Northpass Immersive and Co-Founder of Northpass Media. Northpass Immersive is run by father-and-son team Kurt Bangert (CEO) and Reid Bangert (President). Based out of Kansas City, Mo., the company is dedicated to creating uniquely effective experiences which enable patients to escape the mental confines of their day-to-day environment. BELLA VR's friendly and intuitive design, along with our people-first mentality, make BELLA the smart and efficient solution for healthcare VR. With no wires and no controller, BELLA, (which consists of three parts, including a Samsung phone), is simple to strap on and easy to use. Patients choose from multiple experiences, including a canoe trip, a breathtaking hot-air balloon ride over New Mexico, a scenic trip up the gondola at Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies and a live quartet concert. Coming soon is Find Fiona: an interactive game where patients search for a bouncing baby elephant who shows up in a variety of fun and playful scenes. BELLA can be used in English, Spanish and multiple other languages. Subtitles in 15 different languages are currently available. BELLA VR offers several firsts for VR in a medical setting: * Gaze-based navigation. While many VR devices operate via controller, BELLA is controlled entirely by the user's gaze; the patient simply looks at the experience they want. "We were determined to eliminate the controller, because if you hit a wrong button and you can't see the remote it causes lots of problems and frustrations," says Northpass Immersive co-founder and president Reid Bangert. * Auto-horizon adjust. Many Virtual Reality users complain that they can't use the device while lying down. BELLA solves this problem by calibrating and adjusting the unit's horizon to match the patient's current angle. "This is a huge breakthrough," says Bangert. "If you are sitting at a 45-degree angle without the auto-horizon adjust, you have to look down to be level in the experience. If you are flat on your back, you'd have to look completely down your body to get the full experience. We wanted patients to be able to relax completely." BELLA makes life easier for hospital staff. "It leaves almost zero footprint and can be used in a matter of seconds, without frustration, an important factor in the busy healthcare environment," says Bangert. Another plus for healthcare providers: with a specialized, non-porous coating, BELLA is easy to clean. "We talked extensively with medical professionals who told us that the padding on the interior of other [VR] platforms is so soft that it is difficult to sanitize. BELLA can be cleaned using only a Sani-Wipe and is quickly ready to use again," says Bangert. "The integration of interactivity, visibility and seamlessness; that's what we set out to develop—and we did it," says Bangert, adding that the development team sought feedback from local hospital administrators and medical professionals. Multiple Studies confirm that Virtual Reality can help patients cope with pain and anxiety in a wide range of clinical settings. This includes a University of Washington study that found immersive VR is an effective non-pharmacologic, pain reduction technique in the pediatric burn population and a University of Hartford study that concluded that VR distraction may be a "useful tool for clinicians who work with a variety of pain problems." Bella VR is a platform that benefits patients from 9 to 90. "We are seeing a lot of interest in Pre-Op, in the ER, and in the oncology unit," adds co-founder and CEO Kurt Bangert. "For us it was all about going beyond the hospital walls. If we could transport a patient to Banff National Park or a beautiful beach in the Caribbean, we could make the entire healthcare experience a more positive and engaging one."

#69 - Tammy Wise | Understanding the Amazing Connection Between Your Body and Mind - BodyLogos
1968
Tammy Wise is a widely respected fitness expert and practitioner of holistic healing and Taoist minister. She is the founder and creator of BodyLogos Inc., a Mind-Body Fitness, Wellness and Beauty Company. Tammy Wise complements her teaching of BodyLogos® with a private practice in the traditional Taoist healing arts. Mind-body alignment is her central focus. Active meditation is her method. BodyLogos® is her movement. From Tammy: My mission to bring Tao into the world through movement didn’t start as a spiritual quest—in fact, growing up, I never considered myself a spiritual person. It started as a question about strength. As a Broadway dancer, my body had always been my strongest ally and sharpest tool. But after a long, fulfilling, career onstage, I stopped dancing and began teaching fitness. The more I taught, the more I found myself less interested in using my body and more curious about how my body used energy. I studied the power of food at Ann Marie Colbin’s nutritional cooking school, The Natural Gourmet. Then, onto John Lindseth’s Chinese herbology course and then, The School of Classical Taoist Herbology. I was like a sponge, absorbing any and all information on how to most optimally work with energy: I became certified in nutrition, meditation, herbs, acupressure. I finally had a language for all of the theories I’d been putting into practice as a dancer my entire life. I finally had words and methodologies for the meditative encounters that saved me in my darkest moments. The sun was rising on a new chapter for me, one in which I could not just survive but organize this information into a truly healing, transformative practice that could be integrated into all aspects of life. That thesis, which flickered into existence over a chin-up bar when I felt my absolute lowest, has completely changed the frequency of my life and countless clients. I have seen clients’ lives change. People who feel like their life is too crowded, their apartment is too small, their job is too stifling use this work to go inward and discover that they are actually too crowded inside. And alignment offers them expansion. It is a practice that, when trauma crumpled me into a ball after years of repression, gave me the strength to release my pain and change my story. Thanks to BodyLogos, I don’t muse about how glamorous or cool it would be to be anyone else—I am continually becoming the person I want to If you would like more information on Tammy please check out the following links below: - https://www.linkedin.com/in/tammy-wise-09238aa/ - https://twitter.com/bodylogos?lang=en - https://bodylogos.com Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

FLOW #7 - What's Actually Stopping You From Living the Life You Want (It's Not Talent, Money, Opportunity, Luck, Education, or Environment)
638
You're listening to the 7th episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! Over the past couple of years, I've been learning about this dynamic because I don't have it. Throughout middle and high school I failed on a regular basis so that when it came to business and life I didn't care if I failed or not. Me trying to do things without the fear of what other people think is the #1 reason why I succeed in life. Fear of failure of social pressure is the biggest factor stopping you from doing anything. We have a school system that teaches kids to value A's and B's, not failing. I've started so many businesses and ventures that failed I don't care what anyone else thinks. If a stranger or my mom tells me I'm a loser and I should stop it just gives me more motivation. 10 Signs You Might Have a Fear of Failure The following are not official diagnostics—but if you feel that these criteria are very characteristic of you (very being an important distinguishing marker, since as we all feel these things to some extent), you might want to examine the issue further, either by doing more reading about it or talking to a mental health professional. 1. Failing makes you worry about what other people think about you. 2. Failing makes you worry about your ability to pursue the future you desire. 3. Failing makes you worry that people will lose interest in you. 4. Failing makes you worry about how smart or capable you are. 5. Failing makes you worry about disappointing people whose opinion you value. 6. You tend to tell people beforehand that you don’t expect to succeed in order to lower their expectations. 7. Once you fail at something, you have trouble imagining what you could have done differently to succeed. 8. You often get last-minute headaches, stomach aches, or other physical symptoms that prevent you from completing your preparation. 9. You often get distracted by tasks that prevent you from completing your preparation which, in hindsight, were not as urgent as they seemed at the time. 10. You tend to procrastinate and "run out of time" to complete you preparation adequately. The key is to own the fear, step into it and focus on the aspects that you can control!

#66 - Cianna Stewart | Stop Complaining - How to Stop Sabotaging Your Own Joy and Happiness
2203
Cianna Stewart is the author of "No Complaints" a book on how to stop complaining and sabotaging your own joy. From Cianna - "No Complaints" and created the No Complaining Project because I discovered one very basic thing you can do that can change your life forever and bring you greater joy and more satisfying relationships: Stop Complaining. Nearly every self-development and spiritually enlightened person (including Jack Canfield, Tony Robbins, Suze Orman, Tim Ferris, T. Harv Ecker, Marci Shimoff, Oprah, and even the Dalai Lama) says that the first step in improving your life and experiencing happiness is to stop complaining and blaming and start taking personal responsibility. They all say this is foundational. It’s where to start. I fully agree with this – and also noticed that they don't tell you how to do it. At one critical point in my life, I made the decision to stop complaining and I discovered that it was really hard to do because we live in a culture of complaint. It seemed everyone complained and I would be going against the tide. I got stuck listening to complainers and couldn’t say a thing. At work, I started eating lunch alone. I had to stop hanging out one-on-one with certain friends. I couldn’t even watch TV or listen to comedy if I was really committed to ending complaining! And yet I kept trying because something about it seemed really important. For three years, without telling anyone, I made “No Complaining” my daily practice. To support it, I took classes and read books on psychology, neuropsychology, behavioral economics, sociology, mindfulness, business strategies, somatic therapy – anything that could help me shed some light on the patterns that keep a negative focus in place. Everything I read reinforced this idea that “No Complaining” was the first step in achieving what I wanted out of life. Eventually, I started telling people what I was doing and then I started to hear about others’ experiences with complaining. I found that even though everyone complained, pretty much no one enjoyed listening to it. I learned that many people know a chronic complainer that they wish would stop – and then they would start complaining to me about this other person’s complaining! Complaining was everywhere! Nobody liked it and yet everyone did it! Over time I got better at not complaining. I started solving the problems that made me complain in the first place, and changed my approach to situations I couldn’t change. I also saw that my decision to “Go NoCo” was having some concrete effect on my life – effects even greater than I expected. I was better able to notice and appreciate the good things in my life. The terrible things I’d experienced in the past didn’t get in the way of enjoying myself in the moment. The depressed state I experienced every winter started to have less of a hold on me. I became closer with my friends. I felt happier every day. I was even more productive at work. Switching my focus from complaining to problem solving made me a more valuable employee, coworker, and manager. And I was able to see and jump in to new opportunities because my vision was no longer focused on the bad, but was open to seeing the good and the new – the keys to opportunity. I started writing about my experiences and learnings about complaining began coaching and counseling others on how to eliminate complaints from their lives. Through this, I’ve seen others experience changes in their lives, too, not unlike my own. I created the No Complaining Project and wrote "No Complaints" to share what I’ve learned with you and everyone else. I believe that our world will be a much better place if it were free of negativity and blame. The decision to stop complaining is one small, personal way to make that world come into being. I hope you join me in this effort. It’s time to stop complaining and start experiencing your life in a whole new way.

FLOW #6 - The Real Reason Why I Started the Humans 2.0 Podcast
605
You're listening to the 6th episode of the Humans 2.0 podcast, solo-series, FLOW! I frequently get asked these questions so I figured I'd make a podcast episode from it. - Why did you start the Humans 2.0 podcast? - Why do you even have a podcast bro? - What is my guest approach method? If you like talking, I highly recommend starting your own podcast. Here is a snippet from EoFire's Podcast Guide: 1. Topic: What should my podcast topic be? This is the #1 question I receive. First, get your mindset right. Podcasting is a marathon, not a sprint. Your topic needs to light a FIRE inside that will keep burning for the next three to five years, minimum. Your listeners will be able to sense the passion (or lack thereof) in your voice, so make it easy on yourself and choose something you love and are passionate about. When you choose the right topic, podcasting is not work but FUN. Through podcasting you’ll have the opportunity to build relationships with those you admire while learning more about a topic that inspires you. 2. Avatar This is the biggest mistake 99% of Podcasters (including myself) make while creating their Podcast: they don’t craft their Avatar. Your Avatar is your ONE perfect listener. Your Avatar is the ONE person who will listen to your Podcast and ask him or herself, “Was this Podcast created specifically for me? Do I feel like the host is talking directly to me, addressing my pain points, and giving me valuable information on how to move past my biggest struggles?” Right now you’re reading this and saying, “But I want my Podcast to be for more than just one person; I want the world to love me and to have millions of listeners!” BIG mistake. Huge. It’s a mistake I made. If you try to create a Podcast that resonates with EVERYONE, you will resonate with NO ONE. Your goal is to serve a loyal base of listeners at an incredibly high level. This will only be possible if you know your Avatar inside out and base every decision on what your Avatar would want. Podcast length? Frequency? Interview-based? Topic-based? W.W.M.A.W. What Would My Avatar Want? Every question you have about your podcast should be answered by your Avatar; and guess what, YOU create your avatar! I was so committed to this process that I spent $3,000 on an animated video of my avatar, Jimmy. Through this process I came to know Jimmy inside and out, and every time I turned on the mic, I was speaking to and helping Jimmy. Should you create an animated video of your avatar? Maybe. But maybe not. A pen, paper, and 2,000 words will do. 3. Podcast equipment My complete list of recommended Podcasting equipment can be found here. Buying and setting up podcast equipment is a scary thought for someone who doesn’t consider themselves a ‘techie’. I’m here to tell you it’s much simpler than you think. Below is a picture of Kate’s podcasting setup. All you need is a laptop, a mic and recording software. The ATR-2100 microphone (that’s our affiliate link; we recommend the equipment we use and love) is the best microphone for your money, and it plugs into any USB port – super easy! 4. Podcast software How do I record and edit my podcast? A great question. There are 3 recording and editing software options I recommend for recording and editing your podcast. My #1 recommendation is Adobe Audition Adobe Audition works with both PC and Mac, but it’s not free. To use Adobe Audition, you’ll pay $20 a month for the Creative Cloud membership. I believe this is one of the best investments you’ll make on your Podcasting journey; becoming an expert in Audition has done wonders for my Podcast. If you’re looking to learn the basics of Audition, a simple YouTube search will do. If you’re looking to become a pro, then within Podcasters’ Paradise I have several in-depth video tutorials I created specifically for Podcasters looking to master the Adobe Audition software. My #2 recommendation is Audacity Audacity works with both PC and Mac, and it’s free! There are fewer bells and whistles than with Audition, but Audacity will definitely get the job done for you when it comes to recording and editing your podcast. Within Podcasters’ Paradise we have plenty of tutorials that will get you WELL on your way with Audacity, too! My #3 recommendation is GarageBand GarageBand is for Mac only, comes pre-installed, and it’s free! Again, you get what you pay for, so there are fewer bells and whistles, but GarageBand will also get the job done for you. Within Podcasters’ Paradise we have plenty of tutorials for you on GarageBand, too! 4b. Recording Interviews Every single episode of the 2,000+ I have recorded for Entrepreneurs On Fire has been on a Skype-to-Skype call. Why do I insist on Skype-to-Skype? Unlike landlines or mobile phones, Skype uses technology called V.O.I.P.: Voice Over Internet Protocol. There is no need to get technical here (you can Google it if you wish to learn more); all that’s really important to know is VOIP sounds MUCH better than using a cell phone. If one of my guests says, “I don’t have Skype”, then my response is this: Please create a free Skype account and send me your user name, as Fire Nation deserves the highest audio quality I’m able to provide, and Skype will ensure that. What if they decline to do so? Simply put, they are not the right fit for Fire Nation, and I move on to the next potential guest. **Note: I’ve never encountered someone unwilling to join Skype. Recording audio interviews on Skype There are three ways to record Skype calls that I recommend, and those are, in no particular order: Directly into your software (Audition, Audacity, or Garageband). eCamm Call Recorder Zencastr or Zoom.us If you’re recording directly into your software for an interview show, a mixer is required. This is a lot more technical than you need to get, especially when you’re first starting out. eCamm Call Recorder works GREAT, and after you record you can split your tracks if you wish to edit on separate tracks (allows you to get a lot more precise with your editing). If you choose Zencastr, that will be your Skype + call recorder in one. It records each side of the conversation separately, so you’ll have separate tracks for editing when all is said and done. Zoom.us is also another “all-in-one” connecting and recording option for interview podcasts. 5. The 8-step Process Here is the 8-Step process for publishing a Podcast: 1. Press Record This is actually a lot harder than it sounds, because this is when the imposter syndrome sets in. You’ll hear a voice saying: Who am I to share my thoughts with the world? Who would want to listen to me? Who would want to come on my show? As someone who has personally mentored over 70 Podcasters one-on-one, I can say with confidence that you cannot avoid these thoughts. They are part of being human, and the best step you can take is to accept they exist and always will. I have to overcome the imposter syndrome almost every day. In the beginning, I delayed my launch for over 5 weeks because I was scared. How did finally overcome it? I pressed record and I spoke. The words will come, trust me. 2. Edit This is where you can fix mistakes, add intros, outros, calls to action, etc. Adobe Audition makes this process super simple, and in the video below I’ll show you how! 3. Export file as an MP3 Exporting an MP3 file is just like saving a document in Microsoft Word. The export specs I recommend are: 44100 Hz 16-bit, Mono, 64kbps, CBR (constant bit rate). how to create a podcast This will ensure your audio files stay small, and this will not only potentially save you money on your hosting account, but it will also save your listeners from having to wait on huge files to download on their computer or mobile device. 4. Tag your MP3 Tagging your MP3 is an important step as it adds important information to the audio file such as keywords, title and description. I recommend the tagging software ID3-Editor for this. You can see an example of how tagging will look in the ID3 Editor below: How to podcast 5. Upload to your media host You will need a media host to store your audio files, and your media host is who will generate an RSS feed for you to submit to the major directories (like iTunes, Stitcher Radio and Spotify).

Marcus now speaks, writes, inspires and teaches others to overcome their own Adversity and actualize their personal definition of success.

#59 - Dr. Rick Hanson | Learn the Practical Neuroscience of Lasting Happiness, Love and Peace
2846
Rick Hanson, Ph.D., is a psychologist, New York Times best-selling author and Senior Fellow of the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley. His books are available in 26 languages and include Hardwiring Happiness, Buddha’s Brain, Just One Thing, and Mother Nurture. He edits the Wise Brain Bulletin and has numerous audio programs. A summa cum laude graduate of UCLA and founder of the Wellspring Institute for Neuroscience and Contemplative Wisdom, he’s been an invited speaker at Oxford, Stanford, Harvard, and other major universities, and taught in meditation centers worldwide. Dr. Hanson has been a trustee of Saybrook University, served on the board of Spirit Rock Meditation Center, and was President of the Board of FamilyWorks, a community agency. He began meditating in 1974, trained in several traditions, and leads a weekly meditation gathering in San Rafael, California. His work has been featured on the BBC, CBS, and NPR, plus the online Foundations of Well-Being program in positive neuroplasticity that anyone with financial need can do for free. Hardwiring Happiness: The New Brain Science of Contentment, Calm, and Confidence shows you how to tap the hidden power of everyday experiences to change your brain and your life for the better. The book has been endorsed by Stephen Porges, Thich Nhat Hanh, Dan Siegel, Kristin Neff, Paul Gilbert, Harville Hendrix, Geneen Roth, Jack Kornfield, Sara Gottfried, Tara Brach, Bill O'Hanlon, Sharon Salzberg, and many others. (See all the endorsements here.) Using this book, you can beat the brain's negativity bias, which is like Velcro for negative experiences but Teflon for positive ones. This bias evolved to help ancient animals survive, but today it makes us feel needlessly frazzled, worried, irritated, lonely, inadequate, and blue. Instead, in just a few seconds at a time in the flow of daily life, you can turn your experiences - the pleasure in a cup of coffee, the accomplishment in finishing a tricky email, the warmth from a friend's smile - into lasting inner strengths built into your brain, such as resilience, balance, and positive emotions. Grounded in neuroscience, Hardwiring Happiness is super practical, full of easy-to-use methods and guided practices to grow a steady well-being, self-worth, and inner peace. And it has special sections on children, motivation, relationships, trauma, and spiritual practice.

#58 - Dr. Heidi Forbes Öste | Evolving the Human Connection with Technology in the Digital Era
2698
Dr. Heidi Forbes Öste is a behavioral scientist with a passion for wellbeing and technology. Combining a career in social strategy (advising organizations and leadership on the use of technology to connect for knowledge sharing and relationship building), her doctoral research into the human behavior behind the interactions and her personal passion for well-being, Dr. Forbes Öste's work has evolved to provide solutions for thriving in the digital era. Thriving in the digital era requires innovative solutions to bringing your best self to life and work. Dr. Forbes Öste's BE-ing@Work research explores triggers to presenteeism, showing up physically but absent in presence-of-mind, and potential tech-based solutions. In the Digital Era, using technology is required to manage relationships with teams and clients. Understanding how we interact with tech, and finding the best solutions as our needs, interests and businesses evolve is critical for success and wellbeing. We aim to achieve a state of sociomateriality, a fluid interaction between the digital and self, from which our best comes forward. BE-ing@Work explores the potential for wellbeing apps and devices to counter the effects of presenteeism and achieve sociomateriality. 2BalanceU aims to improve the contemporary workplace, where presence is possible, valued and augmented by innovation, knowledge and respect for the individual as part of the whole. The BE-ing@Work research explores both root causes (ie. chronic illness, lifestyle, workplace culture, physical work setting, technology use) and solutions (ie. well-being programs, incentive, measurement and technology). Dr. Forbes Öste's work is based on the premise of respect for the human capacity to thrive when provided the tools to achieve greater understanding of both body and mind.

FLOW #5 - 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos by Dr. Jordan B. Peterson
634
Jordan Peterson's new book has fundamentally changed my life and expanded all of the ideas I had running through my mind. I can't recommend this book enough. If you don't like reading you can listen to this podcast as well as the thousands of videos on YouTube of Jordan's lectures for free. One day I'm going to get Peterson on this podcast. But, for now, listen to this and let me know what you think! 1. Stand up straight with your shoulders straight 
Most lobsters are complete bastards left to their own devices. Most humans are complete bastards left to their own devices. This proves there is a God who wants us to have Order. Order is Masculine and Chaos is Feminine. Therefore to move towards Order, we all need to man up. Happiness is pointless. We are all on this Earth to suffer. So learn to suffer like a man. Not everyone can be as rich and successful as me, but try to be less of a failure than you already are.
 2. Treat yourself like someone you are responsible for helping 
The story of the Garden of Eden shows that we are all touched with Original Sin But you have a choice. You can either seek Heaven or be dragged down into Hell. Yes, you have a shameful, sinful nature but for God’s sake just make a bit of an effort. Stop waiting for other people to dig you out of your pitiful hole.
 3. Befriend people who want the best for you 
We are all Being. Just some of us are better Beings. Learn to tell the difference. Some people are beyond help. They are merely exploiting the willingness of good people to help them and, as Dostoyevsky rightly observes, will drag you down to their level. So stick with the winners. If people are determined to screw up, let them. They are nothing to do with the Divine Purpose.
 4. Compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not the useless person you are today 
Face it, you’re never going to be that smart, so don’t compare yourself to someone who is. Start by getting on your knees to pray. Even if you don’t Believe in God. Atheists are merely people who are blinded to the true way of Being. There, you feel marginally less useless already.
 5. Do not let your children do anything that makes you dislike them 
Remember that children are born with Original Sin and have a huge capacity for Evil. They are not Innocent Beings. They need Discipline if they are going to grow up to be even vaguely worthwhile humans. And slap them if necessary – don’t listen to what the lefties say.
 6. Set your house in order before you criticise the world 
Remember the story of Cain and Abel? Well, read it then. Yes, Abel was a schmuck who deserved to die and Cain wasn’t quite as goddamn perfect as he thought he was. He deserved to die, too. We all deserve to die. So stop moaning if someone is richer and better looking than you.
 7. Pursue what is meaningful, not what is expedient 
Life is suffering. The Book of Genesis tells us that. There is no easy way round this. So quit looking for short cuts and start reading Nietzsche.
 8. Tell the truth. Or at least don’t lie 
To be honest, I’m scrabbling around for thingsbut my publishers tell me I need 12. By telling you the Truth about this, I am an Improved Being. Certainly better than you.
 9. Assume the person you are listening to knows something you don’t 
Just shut up, quit moaning and listen to me. I know things you don’t. So don’t expect me to listen to you. That’s not the way things work. I’m here to make you feel Better about Yourself by telling you things you already know in a way that makes you feel clever.
 10. Be precise in your speech 
Confront the chaos of Being. Don’t try to beat about the bush. Things are going to be terrible. Oedipus killed his Dad. You may well kill yours. Get over it. Face up to the real horrors of the world.
 11. Do not bother children while they are skateboarding 
This is the rule that’s the real catnip for right-wingers everywhere. Want to know why the world is falling apart? It’s because liberals are turning boys into girlies with their namby-pamby ways. Let boys do boy things and girls do girl things. Nowhere in the Bible does God say anything about this trans nonsense. There’s nothing wrong with men having all the best jobs and women staying home to look after the kids. So back off, ladies, and give us men a break.
 12. Pet a cat when you encounter one in the street 
OK. So I really am scraping the barrel now. We’re all going to die. Probably painfully. So just make the best of what you’ve got. If you see a cat, stroke it. You might feel better. Though probably not. And if there are no cats, pet something else. Like a dog.

#57 - Ira Israel | Disrupt Today's Obsolete 21st Century System's with Authenticity and Love
3756
Ira Israel is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and Mindful Relationship Coach. He graduated from the University of Pennsylvania and has graduate degrees in Psychology, Philosophy, and Religious Studies. “A helpful blend of psychology East and West, a subject that is dear to my own heart.” — Jack Kornfield, PhD, author of A Path with Heart and founder of Spirit Rock Center Ira has taught mindfulness to thousands of physicians, psychologists, attorneys, engineers and creative professionals across America. He is the author of the New World Library book “How To Survive Your Childhood Now That You’re and Adult: A Path to Authenticity and Awakening” and creator of the best-selling "Beginner's Guide to Happiness," “Beginner’s Guide to Mindfulness Meditation,” “Mindfulness for Anxiety,” and “Mindfulness for Depression” videos and DVDs. As children, we learned to get approval by creating facades to help us get our emotional and psychological needs met, but we also rebelled against authority as a way of individuating. As adults, these conflicting desires leave many of us feeling anxious or depressed because our authentic selves are buried deep beneath glitzy or rebellious exteriors or some combination thereof. In this provocative book, eclectic teacher and therapist Ira Israel offers a powerful, comprehensive, step-by-step path to recognizing the ways of being that we created as children and transcending them with compassion and acceptance. By doing so, we discover our true callings and cultivate the authentic love we were born deserving.

FLOW #4 - How to Achieve a Flow State and Quadruple your Productivity
819
Wonder how to enter the miraculous borderland between dreams and reality? A present world where you are reacting dynamically to stimuli in a way that feels magical. FLOW, also known as the zone, is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. When you’re in the state of Flow, you: - are completely focused on the task at hand; - forget about yourself, about others, about the world around you; - lose track of time; - feel happy and in control; and - become creative and productive. It's being in the moment, focusing completely on a single task, and finding a sense of calm and happiness in your work. Flow is exactly that. I believe the ability to single-task (as opposed to multi-task) is one of the keys to true productivity. Not the kind of productivity where you knock off 20 items from your to-do list (although that can be satisfying), where you’re switching between tasks all day long and keep busy all the time. The true productivity I mean is the kind where you actually achieve your goals, where you accomplish important and long-lasting things. As a writer, that might mean writing one or two important and memorable articles rather than 20 or 50 unimportant ones that people will forget 5 minutes after reading them. It means getting key projects done rather than answering a bunch of emails, making a lot of phone calls, attending a bunch of meetings, and shuffling paperwork all day long. It means closing key deals. It means quality instead of quantity. And once you’ve learned to focus on those kinds of important projects and tasks, Flow is how you get them done. You lose yourself in those important and challenging tasks, and instead of being constantly interrupted by minor things (calls, emails, IMs, coworkers, etc.), you are able to focus on the tasks long enough to actually complete them. And by losing yourself in them, you enjoy yourself more. You reduce stress while increasing quality output. You get important stuff done instead of just getting things done. You achieve things rather than just keeping busy. Flow is one of the keys to all of that.

#51 - Jeff Haden | Motivation is a Myth! How High Achievers Really Set Themselves Up to Win
2846
Jeff Haden is the Best-selling author of The Motivation Myth, LinkedIn Influencer, Inc. Magazine Contributing Editor and Speaker. The Motivation Myth overturns the beloved (but false) idea that motivation leads to success, instead, small successes lead to constant motivation - and let you achieve your biggest goals while also having more fun. "Jeff Haden is one of the biggest writers working online today not because he's a genius but because he follows the advice in this book. It's not about motivation, it's about process--and hard work." —Ryan Holiday, author of The Obstacle is the Way and Ego is the Enemy It's comforting to imagine that superstars in their fields were just born better equipped than the rest of us. When a co-worker loses 20 pounds, or a friend runs a marathon while completing a huge project at work, we assume they have more grit, more willpower, more innate talent, and above all, more motivation to see their goals through. But that's not at actually true, as popular Inc.com columnist Jeff Haden proves. "Motivation" as we know it is a myth. Motivation isn't the special sauce that we require at the beginning of any major change. In fact, motivation is a result of process, not a cause. Understanding this will change the way you approach any obstacle or big goal. Haden shows us how to reframe our thinking about the relationship of motivation to success. He meets us at our level--at the beginning of any big goal we have for our lives, a little anxious and unsure about our way forward, a little burned by self help books and strategies that have failed us in the past—and offers practical advice that anyone can use to stop stalling and start working on those dreams. Haden takes the mystery out of accomplishment, proving that success isn't about spiritual awakening or a lightning bolt of inspiration --as Tony Robbins and adherents of The Secret believe--but instead, about clear and repeatable processes. Using his own advice, Haden has consistently drawn 2 million readers a month to his posts, completed a 107-mile long mountain bike race, and lost 10 pounds in a month. Success isn't for the uniquely-qualified; it's possible for any person who understands the true nature of motivation. Jeff Haden can help you transcend average and make lasting positive change in your life.

FLOW #3 - The One Quality All Successful People Have In Common (Not Motivation)
428
Welcome to Episode 3 of the Humans 2.0 Podcast mini-series.....FLOW! Today I talk to you about the 1 trait I've distilled from all of the successful people on the Humans 2.0 podcast. FLOW, also known as the zone, is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. It seems every day you log online you see dozens and dozens of motivational and self-help articles and books. I read these all the time and to be honest....a lot of them are just plain wrong. Self-development is a tricky subject because we are all different. Which is why this one trick/hack/tip is so useful, it applies to all of us listening.

FLOW #2 - Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) Technology Will Upgrade Human Consciousness
1163
Welcome to episode 2 of the Humans 2.0 Podcast mini-series.....FLOW! Tune in to listen to the innovative technological fields of virtual reality and augmented reality that will impregnate the universe with magical innovation. FLOW, also known as the zone, is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. - Virtual reality (VR) immerses users in a fully artificial digital environment. - Augmented reality (AR) overlays virtual objects on the real-world environment. - Mixed reality (MR) not just overlays but anchors virtual objects to the real world. The definition of virtual reality comes, naturally, from the definitions of both ‘virtual’ and ‘reality’. The definition of ‘virtual’ is near and reality is what we experience as human beings. So the term ‘virtual reality’ basically means ‘near-reality’. This could, of course, mean anything but it usually refers to a specific type of reality emulation. We know the world through our senses and perception systems.We all learned that we have five senses: taste, touch, smell, sight, and hearing. These are however only our most obvious sense organs. The truth is that humans have many more senses than this, such as a sense of balance for example. These other sensory inputs, plus some special processing of sensory information by our brains ensures that we have a rich flow of information from the environment to our minds. Everything that we know about our reality comes by way of our senses. In other words, our entire experience of reality is simply a combination of sensory information and our brains sense-making mechanisms for that information. It stands to reason then, that if you can present your senses with made-up information, your perception of reality would also change in response to it. You would be presented with a version of reality that isn’t really there, but from your perspective, it would be perceived as real. Something we would refer to as a virtual reality. So, in summary, virtual reality entails presenting our senses with a computer-generated virtual environment that we can explore in some fashion. In technical terms… Answering “what is virtual reality” in technical terms is straight-forward. Virtual reality is the term used to describe a three-dimensional, computer-generated environment which can be explored and interacted with by a person. That person becomes part of this virtual world or is immersed in this environment and whilst there, is able to manipulate objects or perform a series of actions. How is virtual reality achieved? Although we talk about a few historical early forms of virtual reality elsewhere on the site, today virtual reality is usually implemented using computer technology. There is a range of systems that are used for this purpose, such as headsets, omnidirectional treadmills and special gloves. These are used to actually stimulate our senses together in order to create the illusion of reality. This is more difficult than it sounds, since our senses and brains are evolved to provide us with a finely synchronized and mediated experience. If anything is even a little off we can usually tell. This is where you’ll hear terms such as immersiveness and realism enter the conversation. These issues that divide convincing or enjoyable virtual reality experiences from jarring or unpleasant ones are partly technical and partly conceptual. Virtual reality technology needs to take our physiology into account. For example, the human visual field does not look like a video frame. We have (more or less) 180 degrees of vision and although you are not always consciously aware of your peripheral vision, if it were gone you’d notice. Similarly when what your eyes and the vestibular system in your ears tell you are in conflict it can cause motion sickness. Which is what happens to some people on boats or when they read while in a car. If an implementation of virtual reality manages to get the combination of hardware, software and sensory synchronicity just right it achieves something known as a sense of presence. Where the subject really feels like they are present in that environment. Why have virtual reality? This may seem like a lot of effort, and it is! What makes the development of virtual reality worthwhile? The potential entertainment value is clear. Immersive films and video games are good examples. The entertainment industry is after all a multi-billion dollar one and consumers are always keen on novelty. Virtual reality has many other, more serious, applications as well. Wherever it is too dangerous, expensive or impractical to do something, in reality, virtual reality is the answer. From trainee fighter pilots to medical applications trainee surgeons, virtual reality allows us to take virtual risks in order to gain real-world experience. As the cost of virtual reality goes down and it becomes more mainstream you can expect more serious uses, such as education or productivity applications, to come to the fore. Virtual reality and its cousin augmented reality could substantively change the way we interface with our digital technologies. Continuing the trend of humanizing our technology. There are many different types of virtual reality systems but they all share the same characteristics such as the ability to allow the person to view three-dimensional images. These images appear life-sized to the person. Plus they change as the person moves around their environment which corresponds with the change in their field of vision. The aim is for a seamless join between the person’s head and eye movements and the appropriate response, e.g. change in perception. This ensures that the virtual environment is both realistic and enjoyable. Virtual reality is the creation of a virtual environment presented to our senses in such a way that we experience it as if we were really there. It uses a host of technologies to achieve this goal and is a technically complex feat that has to account for our perception and cognition. It has both entertainment and serious uses. The technology is becoming cheaper and more widespread. We can expect to see many more innovative uses for the technology in the future and perhaps a fundamental way in which we communicate and work thanks to the possibilities of virtual reality.

#45 - Rob May | Biggest Threat to Humanity's Future is a $6 Trillion Cyber War On Data & Privacy
2298
Today's episode features Rob May, chairman of IoD Surrey, an award-winning entrepreneur and Managing Director of ramsac limited. Rob makes complex subjects straightforward by using real-life examples, humor, and pragmatism. He is passionate about his work, positive about life and committed to helping people understand and grow. As the world goes digital, humans have moved ahead of machines as the top target for cybercriminals. There were 3.8 billion internet users in 2017 (51 percent of the world’s population of 7 billion). Predictions say there will be 6 billion internet users by 2022 (75 percent of the projected world population of 8 billion). The cybersecurity community and major media have largely concurred on the prediction that cybercrime damages will cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021, up from $3 trillion in 2015. This represents the greatest transfer of economic wealth in history, risks the incentives for innovation and investment, and will be more profitable than the global trade of all major illegal drugs combined. Cybercrime will more than triple the number of unfilled cybersecurity jobs, which is predicted to reach 3.5 million by 2021. Every IT position is also a cybersecurity position now. Every IT worker, every technology worker, needs to be involved with protecting and defending apps, data, devices, infrastructure and people. The cybersecurity workforce shortage is even worse than what the jobs numbers suggest. As a result, the cybersecurity unemployment rate has dropped to zero percent. Humans 2.0 Podcast Questions: 1:45 - How do you spend your time here on Planet Earth? 3:30 - Rob’s Computer Cybersecurity Experience started in 1992 4:20 - Did you ever think people would be hacking like they are in today’s 2018 cybercrime world. 5:15 - Government’s and organization don’t wage war because they can steal. 6:50 - Hacking into Brains, and augmented reality interface 7:50 - Human Firewall TEDx Talk - We are all Pornstars 12:15 - Who is the average hacker/group? 15:05 - What is your opinion on Hacktivism?

FLOW #1 - How to Balance and Change the Past, Present, and Future
1013
FLOW is a new mini-series I am experimenting with on the Humans 2.0 podcast. Maybe FLOW Fridays? Please listen to the first episode of FLOW and I would LOVE your feedback :) FLOW, also known as the zone, is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. We always hear "live in the present" or "don't live in the past" but what does that actually mean? In today's episode, I discuss the necessity of balancing your past, present, and future to best further live your life. We don't think a past event that happened 10 years ago influences us, but it probably is doing so right now. As Dr. Gabor Maté on the Tim Ferriss podcast says "Addiction is a reaction made by your past unfolding in the present moment. It's because you lost a connection with your true ever-loving self."

2357

Jenn supports individuals to take back their lives and health by making small tweaks to food and lifestyle choices while addressing how much mindset plays a role in long-term success. Sugar eases pain, is more addictive than cocaine and shows every sign of causing long-term health problems. Humans 2.0 Podcast Questions: 2:20 - How do you spend your time here on Planet Earth? 3:45 - Widespread Sugar Addiction / Why are you focused on Sugar? 6:40 - Jenn's Explosive Wake Up Call 8:00 - Modern Day Slow Motion Epidemic of Sugar Addiction 13:30 - What kind of food should people be eating? 16:45 - Blood Type Food Diet Tests 19:45 - How to find what foods are good for your body? 21:30 - What's the deal with gluten (bread, pasta)? 23:15 - What foods have iodine? 24:20 - Are multivitamins and supplements good for you? 28:10 - Classic, I don't have time to eat healthy excuse 31:10 - Current Broken Symptom-based Healthcare system 33:30 - Practical Steps to a Complex Sugar Addiction Problem Jenn Edden's Short Autobiography: I grew up in a family where depression and anxiety felt like a constant for me and my mom and dad… my brother’s, I have 2 of them, seemed to be immune to it. I didn’t like my body very much. I became an anorexic and bulimic for a brief period but still always seemed to have those last 10 lbs to lose. I was a super nervous kid and sugar addict. I mean ADDICT. I could eat a ½ gallon of Turkey Hill mint chocolate chip ice cream in one sitting. Yup. I also remember my mom having to pull me out of school mid-day because I would be sweating so badly that no amount of deodorant or clean shirts would help me. In high school I had TMJ and my mouth would wire shut in for hours on end from being so stressed out socially. The one thing I had going for me is that I always knew there was a better way I just didn’t have the HOW at the time. I tried every diet out there and every exercise program… I even tried meditating but could never sit still long enough.… I always wanted to feel better and get those six pack abs but I didn’t know the how. I just knew I wanted a better life and body. I also didn’t know that eating ice cream, cookies and candy & skipping meals were a huge part of the mind and body problems I was experiencing. We all eat mostly organic and watch the amount of dairy and gluten because all the added chemicals and hormones really do make you feel crazy! And gluten and dairy really do zap your energy when eaten every day. I have also dedicated my life to helping other women, especially women biz owners, who feel like sugar has taken over their life, to take back their power, not through denial or dieting, rather by learning new ways to eat, work and live If they’ve got a business I help them get clear on where they’re headed so they can make mo’ money! You see, I’ve been there with feeling unclear and unmotivated with sugar ruling my every move. I wish I had the knowledge I now possess that gives me the focus and clarity I need to run a successful business while keeping my body in the best shape possible (and balancing a home life with a family!) Did you know that sugar cravings are the body’s way of telling you that something needs to change? When my clients start to make changes in their lives and tweak their diets, the cravings start to diminish and their energy shoots up. Yup. It’s kinda cool how that works. ~ Listen to the Podcast in Audio Form ~ iTunes - http://apple.co/2w2igRz Google Play - http://bit.ly/2i520dh Stitcher - http://bit.ly/2iPsrRB iHeart Radio - http://bit.ly/2Ag3xW3 If you would like more information on Jenn Edden please check out the following links below: Jenn's Website - https://jecoaching.com/ Jenn's FB - https://www.facebook.com/jenn.edden.coaching/ Jenn's LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/jecoaching/ Jenn's Twitter - https://twitter.com/jennedden?lang=en Jenn's Book - http://amzn.to/2EKahhf Humans 2.0 Twitter - https://twitter.com/Humans2Podcast Twitter - https://twitter.com/markymetry Medium - https://medium.com/@markymetry Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mark.metry.9 Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markmetry/ LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-metry/ Mark Metry - https://www.markmetry.com/

#32 - Connie Thoreson | How to Meditate for Beginners - Tips, Tricks, and Tools
2192
Connie Thoreson is a meditation teacher at Totally Meditation. Connie and I will help you quiet your mind and tap into your own natural ability to heal yourself through meditation and mindfulness. Connie is also a writer and facilitator who focuses on helping adults who have difficulty learning to meditate. Some of her teachings are dedicated to people with ADD/ADHD, Asperger’s and even those suffering from intense chronic pain. Join Connie and I as we talk about the basics and complexities of meditation and how you can start meditating right now. Mindfulness Meditation has been the most impactful activity I do every single day. If you are looking for a sense of direction, and solid base to build an integral foundation of character, meditation is for you. Meditation teaches you discipline, increases your flow states, and allows you to slow your mind down and be conscious of your thoughts and emotions. Once you get your mind right you can get your life right. Most of the times we are so blindsided on an issue that we only view these certain issues with it and stick with it. Revisit the situation and you will often find your problems have changed or shifted position over your mind. Meditation decreases the stress produced by your body and improve the areas of your brain responsible for empathy and love. I used to think meditation was a hippie gimmick as an excuse to sit around and do nothing. Once I started I realized I was wrong and this bad perception of meditation has negatively harmed my life. I recommend you do a little bit of research on your own. Look up different types of meditation and some scientific studies that show the benefits of meditating. Please don’t say “I can’t meditate because I can’t clear my mind”. Of course, you can’t you are only human. Mindfulness meditation isn’t about “clearing your head”. Give meditation a try and let me know how it works out for you in the comments in a couple weeks! I am also advocating for mindfulness throughout your daily life. When you are walking do you feel your feet move back and forth to move you across a massive space rock? When you are eating pay attention and smell and taste your food. Don’t watch or listen to anything. Start practicing mindfulness in all your activities. PAY ATTENTION!

That’s the reason you have the reality or the life you are living right now. If your life stinks you had something to do with it and the opposite is true. If your life is good you had something to do with it. The important news — you can change your life and change your way of seeing the world at any moment. You can make new choices, different choices, better choices at any time to improve your life in many positive and good ways. Logan Tyler Nelson wants to be as real as he can with you. He's always found it unhelpful to see depression as a mental illness. But this is what he has to label it as because society won’t know what he's talking about when he refers to it as an Itch that only goes away when it's Scratched. “Scratch Your Own Itch.” What does that mean? Un- Scratched itches can drive someone crazy. And the longer someone ignores that itch; the greater the chances are they'll go crazy, have a mental breakdown, or even worse- feel unworthy/ suicidal. Logans Big life Itch came when he attempted suicide and failed. After this life-changing event, he finally realized that he LOVES helping other people face their fears and make that big change in their life before its too late. Scratching your own Itch feels so good and when you finally do it you don't question your life purpose, you don't think about changing careers, you don't have a fear of missing out on anything, and all the sudden you notice that you no longer have jealousy towards other people, you no longer worry about "is it going to work? " Because now your tapped into a "flow" state as Steven Kotler refers it too. ADHD goes out the window, anxiety goes out the window, and most importantly Suicidal thoughts are completely eradicated. It begins with Scratching Your Own Itch. Because the opposite of fear is Curiosity. Logan's true mission is to save 10 million people from negative thinking because he's finally Scratching His Own Itch.

2740
Nicky Cullen is a writer, author and anxiety "coach" for those that hate therapy. Nicky and I talk about all of the different ways technology is changing the world for better or worse. Nicky's series of panic attacks led him down a path he wouldn't wish on his greatest enemy, but he can't be too mad because it's also led him to here. A place where his biggest pain has somehow become his greatest passion. Primarily in the business of helping people seek freedom from anxiety, panic attacks, and the associated depression. Everything Nicky has experienced provided him with a fresh perspective and entire new outlook on life. One which brings with it a feeling of liberation and some pretty stubborn points of view on the societies we live in. He's also gained a fascination with psychology and how the human mind operates. These are the subjects Nicky loves to write about to help ensure you, the reader, doesn't have to endure the terror of anxiety for longer than you have to.

#24 - Ira Pastor | Humanity's Biotechnology Revolution is Happening Now
2555
Ira Pastor is CEO of Bioquark, a Biotechnology company working on reviving dead brains and repair organ tissue using natural sources. Bioquark, Inc. is focused on the development and commercialization of a novel range of biologic-based products and services that have the ability to alter the biological regulatory state of human tissues and organs, with the goal of curing a wide range of diseases. The biologic regulatory states of our cells, tissues, and organs represent the central control processes behind our health (as well as our unfortunate transition towards disease, degeneration and aging), and a technology/product platform that can reverse negative transitions, will be transformational in the pharmaceutical industry, as well as in the wider healthcare business segment. The company’s core program focuses on developing a novel class of substances termed combinatorial biologics, which take a unique approach to reversing underlying disease, degeneration or aging processes, as opposed to affecting the symptoms of such conditions, as most marketed pharmaceutical products currently do today. Combinatorial biologics, which work at the level of the regulatory genome, and are modeled off of biochemical dynamics found in various species which can naturally modify biologic regulatory state to achieve beneficial endpoints such as complex tissue and organ regeneration, disease reversion, and even biological age reversal.
