#37: We all have a level of health and wellness that is a result of our drive. Of what is motivating us. We have a reason. What is it? And are we in agreement with it? Just as important as our literal physical health, maybe more, is our peace about ourselves in regards to it. In episode #7 of this What Drives You podcast, Nov. 6, 2020, I talked through where we find life fulfillment and why. The first category I listed was health and wellness. Our physical selves. I don’t list this first to say it’s most important, but I’d say it’s arguably first, sequentially. If our bodies are unwell we are less capable of doing or being much good. I asked my audience, “What reasons drive you to exercise and eat well and increase and/or maintain your health and wellness?” Over 70 comments. I’m going to talk through the issue and share some comments. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

    39: What Drives Your Relationships

    32:19

    #39: In this episode of the What Drives You podcast I asked the audience, “What reasons drive you to pursue relationships and relational health? What is your motivation?” Only five people responded. Two weeks prior for episode 37 I asked, “What reasons drive you to exercise and eat well and increase and/or maintain your health and wellness?” and over 70 people responded. Which is intriguing, as we know statistically the primary drive of all humanity is relationships. The results here don’t contradict this truth, but instead reveal that even as it is our primary desire, we are often the least, specifically clear, on what we want out of our relationships and why.

    38: Richard Leider: How To Understand Your Purpose

    1:22:26

    #38: There is no end to the content about purpose, so much so I fear it’s seldom compelling anymore. Yet purpose proves to be the pinnacle of fulfillment. The holy grail, the fountain of youth, enlightenment, nirvana. As we as a culture fall further into depression and suicide, Rabbi Daniel Lapin stated the opposite of depression is purpose. I believe it is the ultimate driver of all we do, or want to do. So I bring you an expert. Richard Leider is widely viewed as a pioneer of the global purpose movement and is actually referred to as “the pope of purpose”. PBS had him do a special called The Power of Purpose and he has eleven books and three best sellers. In this episode I dive in, getting to what I feel are the root issues on purpose that will help you grasp and embrace it further. We get into defining “calling” and “gifts” and I felt the conversation was just tremendous. You can find more on Richard at richardleider.com and he has a wonderful new book titled, Who Do You Want To Be When You Grow Old?: The Path of Purposeful Aging, that I’ll tell you is not for older people, it’s for all of us. He makes a profound distinction between getting older...and growing older. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

    36: The Top 3 Things We Want To Change About Ourselves

    51:36

    #36: We all want to make change for the better. But when you think of making personal change, what aspects of yourself or your life are you thinking of? I surveyed listeners asking them. Was it their appearance, ability, emotions, character, self-image, behavior, circumstances, or something else? There were many responses that I'm going to talk through with you, but the results were this...number one was Ability, two behavior, and three appearance! Of merit to recognize as always with any survey I do, it’s going out to listeners like you who I’m going to refer to as an “aspiring” demographic of people. This wasn’t a cross section of people walking along the street. The most popular podcasts on the planet are crime stories and comedy. Bottom line, they are entertainment. The number one podcast in Business is Dave Ramsey’s podcast and it only comes in at #39 overall behind all the crime and comedy and entertaining story podcasts that pass the time. The number one health podcast is Jay Shetty who ranks back in 69 overall and #1 in education is Jordan Peterson who just makes the top 100 at #99 overall as of this recording. My point, doing a survey to listeners of any of my podcasts is weighted towards those who are looking to learn and grow instead of merely being entertained. Which is of interest then to hear these kind of people put ability, behavior and appearance at the top of the list of things they want to change about themselves. Learn more about your ad choices.

    35: Maya Shankar | What Happens To Us When, Change Happens To Us

    1:04:27

    #35: Change is going to happen to us. Either it will force itself like the pandemic or an injury, or we’ll make it happen by trying to lose weight or start a business. What happens to us when we change? As you’re about to hear, there are often great and terrible consequences. I bring you Maya Shankar. Maya is a cognitive scientist and former Obama White House Senior Advisor. Maya actually founded the Behavioral Science Team at the White House, called “the Nudge Unit, which used insights from behavioral economics to write better public policy. Pushkin Industries is a podcast platform cofounded by Malcolm Gladwell and they brought Maya in to host a new podcast called, Slight Change of Plans. From the interviews Maya has conducted it’s altered her personal view of change, as she’s seen so many people proactively pursue change and succeed, yet testify to negative consequences they didn’t anticipate. Like the girl who lost 100 lbs and realized she was no longer who she was and who she liked, and she was disappointed at people’s new behavior to her just because she lost weight. And the health nut who got cancer and from it realized if he’d understood what dealing with cancer did for his mindset, he wouldn’t have feared it so much. Join me as I have a very candid discussion with Maya on the ins and outs of what happens to us when change...happens.

    44:03

    #34: I bring you a new concept to help you conceive of why change is often so hard, and what it really takes to make new change. There is amazing research on the topic of change by people I revere. This is a compilation boiled down to an easy to understand perspective to help you make sense of it in a way I don’t think you will forget, and you can readily share with others.

    33: RELAUNCH: The Paradox of Change

    28:45

    I want to flip your paradigm on...change, and our efforts to become a different person. The punchline? I don’t think we want to inherently change and be different people. The prospect is actually offensive. But after a lifetime in personal development, I’ll tell you what we do want. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

    32: What values do you exist to support?

    27:17

    Let’s talk about values. When it comes down to it we all long to know what we value and have those values drive us to valiant achievements. We want a crusade and a quest. A purpose to live and die for. We love being with people who have values. We are drawn to watching stories about heroes with values. Yet we live in a society that has fewer and fewer clear values and if you state you have any you are narrow minded and bigoted and judgemental. There is another way. A different perspective. One I think you’ll be eager to embrace. Walk with me for a moment... Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

    31: A Motive For Temporary Failures

    27:06

    If I were hiring you for a position requiring leadership, creativity, or innovation or really anything beyond just menial work, I would ask you if you’ve ever encountered temporary failure while attempting anything significant. If your answer was, “No”, I would not hire you. If you haven’t dealt with a decent failure, then you haven’t tried much, or at least not much that required enough of you. Thus for any aspiring person, trying big enough objectives which bring you temporary failures is a desirable motive. In many sporting events for kids these days, everyone gets a “participation award” where there are no winners or losers. Few people encounter any real failure in the traditional education system and a majority of modest jobs offer fair compensation for work which has little to no risk. This breeds mediocrity and a stable working class. If you desire anything more you want to be trying things you can’t easily achieve and encountering temporary failures. Not absolute failures. Not high risk and damaging failures. But endeavors where you must face legitimate obstacles you must overcome. Where you may need to redirect and sometimes even start over completely in order to succeed. This is what grows intelligence, resilience, and wisdom. Learn more about your ad choices.

    30: The Motive Of Achievements

    28:23

    Achievements is our muse today. Why they mean so much to us, why they are so important, and what we miss out on when we don’t pursue them. The point is not what the achievement is, but what it means to you, and the value we receive by having achievements in our lives we are proud of. Proud of, just for ourselves, but I’m not going to discount the value of social credibility as well in regard to our achievements. We are social creatures and the societal aspects of our achievements are not to be discounted. Let’s dig in and unpack how you can more healthfully perceive of the achievements you will find fulfillment in.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
