EP#113 - Make a Choice and Commit

EP#113 - Make a Choice and Commit

July 17, 2019

How many times did you want to change something in your life and find yourself 1-2 months later, not doing what you commited to?

How many times did you let the wind of life take you instead of you declaring where you want to go?

After working with many entrepreneurs and studying human behaviour and pscyhology for over 10 years, I have noticed how many people quit or allow stories and excuses to pull them away from the EXACT thing they desire in their life.

In this episode, I share about the importance of making a choice, what it means to decide and how to commit to see it through all the way, even when it is failing..

Why would that be?  Why would I say, "Make a choice and see it through regardless of results?"

Tune in to find out...

EP#102 - The Power of Intuition

EP#102 - The Power of Intuition

May 22, 2019

In this episode, I share the difference between using logic/past experiences/EGO to make a decision rather than, tapping into your intution.  I break down the differences between the two from a neurological standpoint and how to use intuition to the best of my ability to share.

Intuition is something not taught, but learned.  Intuition is a muscle that you can become more aware of and learn to utilize in your life BUT, you have to learn how intuition shows up for you.  I will be sharing how intuition works for me and when I know I am using my intuition vs. Using my mind (left brain).

Tune in and let me know what you think...

EP#91 - The Practicality of Being a Spiritual Atheist - Part II

EP#91 - The Practicality of Being a Spiritual Atheist - Part II

April 5, 2019

Here is the part II series with Nick Jankel as we dive into the practicality of being a spiritual atheist.  In part I, we discussed the ins and outs of the philosophy and aspects to spiritual atheism but part II puts it all into action.  Tune in below.

Who is Nick Jankel?

Nick Jankel has lectured at Yale & Oxford, advised the Prime Minister at No.10 Downing Street, been invited to Science FOO Camp run by Google and Nature Journal, contributed to The Economist and The Guardian, the BBC World Service (on the subject of Artificial Intelligence) and presented at The Science Of Consciousness conference.  He can inspire your listeners with his fresh ideas on science and engage them with his playful and warm manner as he shares profound thoughts in purposefully accessible ways. We are currently launching his new book Spiritual Atheist, which has been the #1 New Release for 5 weeks on Amazon!

A Cambridge-educated scientist and historian of science (receiving a Triple 1st), Nick was unable to find lasting happiness with either religion or reason (nor through pills, therapy, partying, wealth, success, or entrepreneurship either). Even though he was, and still is, a militant atheist, he finally discovered the life-changing benefits of ‘spiritual’ enlightenment. But allergic to ‘woo-woo’ weirdness he has spent years meticulously joining the dots between the scientific traditions and the wisdom traditions to form a rigorous life philosophy for the 25% of the USA and UK who say they are ‘spiritual but not religious’. 

In his new book, Spiritual Atheist, Nick risks his reputation as a top advisor to leaders in companies like HSBC and to the UK and US government, by laying out this new life philosophy. He explains the genius of the scientific method for creating firm knowledge about our material world while suggesting that it was never designed to create firm and predictable knowledge about our inner world - our consciousness.

Nick believes that the modern scientific project will fail until it fully accounts for our conscious experiences - the “secondary properties” that scientists from Galileo to Daniel Dennett have discounted as not really real. He goes further to suggest that science - especially the science of human beings - has reached a dead end and must have a quantum-style paradigm shift at its heart to account for an increasing number of ‘uncanny’ phenomenon that it cannot explain: from the placebo effect to embodied cognition to near-death experiences, all empirically verified.

Nick’s ideas follows in the footsteps of titans of philosophy like Plato, Nietzsche, William James, and Alfred North Whitehead.  He draws on the ideas of modern thought leaders like Pierre Hadot, Charles Taylor, Thomas Kuhn, Bertrand Russell, Michel Foucault, Galen Strawson; and is inspired by the work of cutting-edge scientists like Rex Jung, Robin Carhart-Harris, Christoph Koch, and David Bohm.

This is a two-part series as I had the pleasure of interviewing Nick Jankel.  Nick shares his deep insights and wisdom that he wrote about in his book, "Spiritual Atheist."  For me, when I first saw his book, I was very curious to know what it was all about due to the title.  It is a great book and a great interview.
