QUOTES:

 

“You don’t have to experience pain and hunger to get the benefits of fasting and to go into fasting.” [5:04]

 

“Fasting the same way everyday is bad for you. Because it doesn’t lend your body the idea of metabolic flexibility. It’s like, “Oh, I live in a world where there’s almost never enough food.” So have breakfast every now and then…” [24:08]

 

“When most people hear fasting, all they hear is, “I’ll starve therefore, I’ll die,” and then they blank out to it. No, this is about more energy and it’s about more clarity and less time wasted.” [41:53]

Your reality is not what you think it is. Everyday, you move through and see the experiences of life with a filter. This filter? Its your own perspective. Now is the time for you to recognize and become self-aware of this perspective, rid yourself of it, and actually begin to change your life for good. On this episode of Impact Theory, Tom Bilyeu is joined by New York Times Bestselling Author, speaker, and urban philosopher Gary Bishop to discuss such matters and more as they explore how to finally wake up to the reality youve fabricated for yourself, break the chains of your perspective which can hold you back, and start to walk on a path towards the person, life, and reality you want to live. They discuss how we each create our own reality from our experiences, how to become self-aware so that you can recognize patterns in your life, why we create false narratives for ourselves, how to become reborn and renewed into a new person, why you shouldnt require others to change for you, and how to deal with the challenging fundamentals of life such as success, grief, and love.

I think what youre witnessing is this kind of bankruptcy of your persona. Like, whove youve come to know yourself as no longer works, right? And its the same shit and no matter how hard you shake that tree, youre only ever getting one apple. [27:28]

 

“…and part of being a loving human being is, whats also on the table, is something called disappointment. [48:13]

The truths we once all agreed upon and held dearly may soon be lost to power-hungry, sometimes forceful, and always unrelenting culture war movements. Like a calm before the storm, our society may be on the brink of irreversible and incomprehensible consequences. All objective truth may soon be removed from society and be replaced with a post-modernist approach where truth simply cannot exist. Still, what is the truth? What is the undeniable evolutionary science behind men and women in todays society? On this episode of Conversations with Tom, Tom is joined by Evolutionary Biologist Heather Heying to discuss such matters and more as they explore todays society and the undeniable biological differences between men and women, how each sex has a unique and powerful role in societies, and why in todays modern age, culture wars has eroded trust in objective truth. They discuss todays social movements and the harmful consequences of letting them go too far, the differences between men and women in society, how hunter-gatherer societies may be key to understanding our roles, the origin of men and women being divided in society by role and purpose, the dangers we face if we continue to deny our differences, why the culture war movements are power hungry, how to have a successful workplace environment and team, and the risks we face as a society if we overprotect our children and refuse to let them take risks and make their own decisions.

QUOTES:

 

“…is it true that an entirely male power structure has a tendency to go off the rails in a particular way in which were well familiar from like all of history? Yeah, of course, right? Would an all-female power structure go off the rails in a particular way that were less familiar with from history? A hundred-percent. I dont want to see that anymore than I want to see, you know, another World War II…” [15:30]

 

“…what you said earlier is just exactly right and Ive never heard anyone say it before which is that when you have been on all-male teams, its easier, and when you have been on mixed-sex teams, its more productive and I just, you know, so hope that that anecdote holds across everything. Its what Im sort of banking on…” [57:23]

 

The thing is, yes we get less flexible as we age, for sure. Our brains get less plastic, we get more, you know, canalized into our particular ways of thinking but continuing to expose ourselves to more and more experiences that are different from anything we imagined is how to keep that flexibility…” [1:29:20]

“…you’re not a human being, you’re a conglomerate of all of these organisms together. So you have, you know, hundreds of millions of different species just living in you. And so when we look at hunter-gatherer populations and what their microbiome looks like versus us, we’re completely sterile compared to them.” [21:24]

 

“There’s not a system of the body that we’re not looking at and that we’re not trying to optimize because it all works together. You can’t just say, “I’ll optimize your heart.” There’s no way, it’s impossible, right? Everything’s connected. And so, we have to look at all the systems and see where we’re at.” [41:09]

Are you struggling to accomplish your goals because you’re so focused on the outcome? If something “fails” or isn’t a “success,” do you let that eat away at your motivation and define who you are? It’s time for you to throw away everything you’ve learned about success and begin to shift your mindset to focus on your effort in everything you do, rather than the outcome. On this episode of Impact Theory, Tom Bilyeu is joined by author, entrepreneur, and teacher Seth Godin to discuss such matters and more as they explore why you need to stop focusing on outcomes and begin focusing on your efforts.

The experiences you carry with you from your past greatly affect how you respond in the future. We are constantly feeding our brain data based on the world and circumstances we live in. Based on these experiences, our brain is able to formulate a ‘best guess’ and, thus, we form our responses. But are we really in control of our responses? Does our brain truly know anything or is everything our brain concludes merely just a ‘best guess’ and nothing more? On this episode of Conversations with Tom, Tom joins neuroscientist, psychologist, and author Dr. Lisa Feldman Barrett to discuss such matters and more as they explore how the human brain develops it’s responses to the world and why it’s important for us to not only understand it for our own sake, but for the benefit of others as well. They discuss the difference between emotion and affect, how our brains develop during childhood, how culture is built into our brains, how concepts are formed and used within our brains, what our body budgets are, and why we should be always approach each other with empathy and compassion first.
