EP#103 - Breaking the Diabesity Epidemic

May 25, 2019
Part CEO, part personal development wonk, and part biohacker info geek, Thom King is a self-confessed serial entrepreneur. While his favorite book list contains many success-oriented and personal-development classics, the traditional definition of achieving success (e.g. make a lot of money) is not what inspires or motivates King. He follows more of a “you aren’t doing well unless you’re also doing some good” line of thinking. King’s company has been built around the simple principle of “do the right thing.”
 
In 1999, Thom’s personal passion for food and his concern over the explosion of metabolic disease led him to found Steviva Brands, now known as Icon Foods, with a mission to stem the tide of “diabesity” by providing consumers healthy alternatives to sugar. In recent years, his passion for food and optimal health have intersected with his embrace of a ketogenic (low carb, high fat) diet. Thom’s latest project is a line of ketogenic condiments intended to help more people successfully adopt a
healthier lifestyle.

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.

March 29, 2019

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.

EP#86 - The Difference Between What to Think vs. How to Think

EP#86 - The Difference Between What to Think vs. How to Think

March 19, 2019

The biggest fail I believe when it comes to learning from someone is when they tell you WHAT to think rather than HOW to think.

The old method of telling you how I did something and now I am going to sell exactly what I did to become successful is awesome stuff but my vision in life is to create SPIRITUAL TRANSFORMATION.

My vision is to help individuals REALIZE their TRUE nature. To allow for your light to shine. My vision is not to create a copy of someone else in any way, shape or form.

Too many people copy people's stuff and put a stamp on it (logo) that it is there's and in the end, they may be successful, but their soul is muted.

Tune in as I share more on these principles and help you dive deeper into the world of HOW rather than WHAT...

EP#84 - Stop Giving Your Power Away

EP#84 - Stop Giving Your Power Away

March 12, 2019

How we give our power away in so many ways, today I wanted to share one way on how we do this.  I hear this often and it is one thing that, if you can stop giving your power away, you can use that extra power to align and manifest what it is you desire.  It is what allows you to show up as your best every single day.  

The issue with giving your power away is like using up energy on things that don't empower you but only take from you.  In the long run, it is not sustainable.  You end up in a place where you feel burned out, tired, exhausted, etc.  I have been there too many times.

Until I learned this simple tool, I kept ending up burned out, overwhelmed and exhausted.  

Now, I am at my best about 90+% of the time, each and every day.  Still, have room to grow, but way better off than where I was 5 years, 10 years, even the last couple years of my life.

Tune in for more!
