"Okay so I love here in a live here in his story he talked about how he found his gift in prison. It's it's funny that I mean it's it's great. It's great the find you have to go through that attack of I mean obviously you don't want anybody to go to prison. But you would think that. In the darkest scenario someone wouldn't be talking about how they found around the positive aspect of their life that is ultimately changed their entire trajectory in turn them into who they are yeah and he was literally in prison but I think so. Many people get into a prison of the mind that they're unable to move at. It is when they get really trapped and really stuck doc that often that is the catalyst for finding your gift. You've just got no other choice. And now he did that literally happened to. He was literally in prison. But I I think it can work. Both ways. Thought was interesting. How he talked about how he had to rebuild his image like he kinda rebuild himself in a way? Yeah yeah that's something to think about. Yeah it also kind of struck my because he's such a great marketing guy that he almost treated himself as a brand. Yes and sometimes that works. Yeah I have heard people that have been in such broken situations that they just basically rebuilt themselves. They built the person they wanted to be. Yeah maybe that's their way of uncovering who they truly were anyway. Bits and pieces that they built themselves with none. None of them was by accident. Yeah you're really are right right and they look back into like. I made myself this when you know. They made themselves who they were made to be right right. I think it's pretty cool like that. He mentioned that he always was a genius. But it took him years to realize it. Yeah I really like this guy in a sense that he has a supreme confidence without coming off one iota as arrogant and I think that's kind of the goal right. That's a hard thing to do. It's very difficult to do. But it's the kind of dry for it. You know because confidence is a great thing it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. As far as I'm concerned it it does it. Builds on itself has momentum inherently built into it right so once you get that going. It's Kinda hard to stop and you're right. It is a difficult thing to manufacture is. I've heard people say we'll just be confident in well. There's nothing worse than inauthentic. Take confidence it never plays. Well Yeah you Kinda really need to believe you can actually do it. which is sometimes? You can't really get that unless you're actually out there doing it so it's like it's difficult. It's almost like a catch twenty two or like a chicken and the egg which comes first the chicken or the egg but I love the confidence. I think you're right about him just having a genuine like he just knows he's bright. Yeah appreciation for who he is. And I'm a smart guy and and I also appreciate the fact that he believes there is untapped genius in the hood as well I can. That's what he said he said the hoods hold on chap genius. Everyone can change. Everyone has the power potential. And who better for that to come from room than someone like him. Who was there and did it right? Yeah absolutely I bet. There are so many creative. Innovative ashort thinkers that just either. Don't have the infrastructure to believe in themselves with the sports system to believe in the south or have just literally been held down by by the way the society is constructed. And don't believe that there's a way that they can find around but if we could somehow lift up those invisible things holding certain groups of people down I I fully. There would be such untapped greatness and so again it's about personal responsibility. Everybody has to try and find their thing. That's the responsibility of your life. Yeah the bigger the obstacles the bigger the gift. You're probably GONNA reveal. Well I like also that he kind of wrap it up with everyone. That's living the American dream is doing it because someone reached out hand gave access. You know as confident as he is and has much important says he places on personal responsibility he certainly does not forget the fact that people helped him and then he found people to help him he modeled himself after certain people people and that's a good lesson as well I think is that yeah. You can do a lot on your own but you also need other people. Yeah we talked about this. I'm on a recent episode Just about reach out ask for help. You're not you won't be just solving the problem. That's right in front of you. You Open yourself up to an entire network of possibility. Yeah and I think it's it's endless. Not a fixed pie. You can grow as far as you want to grow if you're reaching out to other people because you're sort of like you're multiplying your potential but if you if you're just relying on yourself then you're sort of limited in yourself right but if you're reaching out to two people people three people ten people you can gain skills from all of those people and grow a lot of yourself from them and it's like you're multiplying yourself exponentially so I love it. Great Story from Chef Henderson. And I think it's really good inspiration for anybody in a difficult circumstance to be like. Hey there's a guy who did did it other people can do it. I can do it too. I just. I love hearing these types of stories. I think they're so inspiring. Couldn't agree more. You can find more from from Chef Jeff Henderson at shift. Jeff Live Dot Com. That's his website. He's also on socialist. Got Several books out there and we'll put a link to do that in the show notes of this episode until next time. I'm Jeremy Fisher can provide you to keep moving. Keep thinking and keep growing.

Jeremy Fisher always alongside my co host Aaron falcon. All right. Aaron today, we are going to hear firm, Ramona J Smith, she's got a little talk for us about staying in the ring another, another name that is not hugely known out there. But, you know, it's kind of cool air, and I feel like we're sort of discovering these people on our. And she's, she's really inspiring. She's got a lot of pep in her step. This is a good one. Let's go ahead and get started. Life will sometimes feel like a fight. The punches jabs hooks will come in the form of challenges obstacles and failures. Yet, if you stay in the rain and learn from those pass fights at the end of each round, you'll be still standing. Mr. contests here fellow fighters. Can you think of a time when life tried to knock you down? Who was your toughest opponent? Most often are most challenging opponent is ourselves. Wow. One college I dropped out of college.

"But I'm not sure that I'm going to earn. Earn her being around on of and interestingly enough walking into it with those look spectator made me feel comfortable enough to completely be, who I was and made her feel comfortable to be who she was. And as a result, we realized we looked up a year after we had been dating. Wow. We've actually got something really great here. We might need to see where this is going. So I just I just wanted to throw that out there as I think that there might be an aspect, there might be something to your sort of like multi-tiered relationship like there's, there's like a good enough relationship. And then there's a magic relationship, my only warning for the people that want the magic relationship is too, and I'm sure you probably would agree with this is to not expect magic from every single person you meet, because like you said it is rare and sometimes it happens without trying. Right. And you have to be willing I think it's nice to send you want. Magic, but you have to be willing. What that looks like in the opportunity cost that is you might be a long your entire life. Now, does that sound appealing because that's a real risk, just like the friend that you're talking about, right? And again, and to understand that magic is not perfection. Magic is a kind of soul mate in that, but that's still comes with a lot of the problems that every relationship has don't, don't just think the first night, if you feeling magical connection with somebody that the first time there's a problem that it's not magic any, you know what I mean. Like that's not life is still life, and everybody has to deal with even the ones that are in the magic relationships. Like do you have to do the work on that note? I know we're getting kind long on this episode, but I did want to mention this because we've so rarely talk about relationships on the show Philip, we should probably talk about a little bit more. But I just did some research from the awakening podcast, the other day this had mentioned going to mention this episode. Only ten percent of couples ever get couples counseling. And of the people that do get couples counseling or marriage counseling. Two thirds of them, stay together, which that is interesting data to me because it tells me that you can dramatically increase your odds of staying together. Now, course we're talking about people that would be committed, you know, that are like we're in this, we need to make this work. What minoshe was talking about in his speech? But one of the things that just kind of wanted to throw out there is nine out of ten people don't do the thing that could dramatically increase their odds of staying together. And I don't know that to me, that's worth noting. Absolutely. So I guess, on that note, sometimes relationships are fixable, and maybe it's the way to get fixed is to reach out and get some help from somebody else. Who knows? We'll aired. I think that's a good place for us wrap up. We kinda went a little long episodes, but it was a pretty important episode. We have a lot to say about us. Maybe we need to start doing some more relationship episodes. Sounds like it's a topic that you and I have a couple thoughts that we can explore who knew who knew. So until next time I'm Jeremy Fisher, and I'm Erin falsely by need to keep moving keep thinking, then keep growing..

"Welcome to the pick the brain podcast where we pick the brains of the brightest minds in the areas of health, self-improvement productivity and kicking ass at life. I'm Jeremy Fisher, always alongside my co host hair and fouth. All right, Erin today. We're going to hear four rules for life from Abby Wambach who is retired soccer player. Coach two time Olympic gold medalist and FIFA women's World Cup champion. Pretty incredible. Very incredible. All right. Let's get started. Throughout my life. My pack who's been my team teams need a unifying structure and the best way to create one collective heartbeat is to stab mushrooms for your team to live by it. Doesn't matter. What specific pager all on just as long as you're on the same one here. Four rules. I've used to unite my pack and lead them to gold rule. One. Make failure your fuel. Here's something the best athletes understand, but seems like a harder concept for non athletes to grasp not athletes. Don't know what to do with the gift of failure. So they hide it pretend it never happened rejected outright. They end up wasting it. Listen failure is not something to be ashamed of it. Something to be powered by Faye? Failure is the highest octane fuel your life can run on you. Gotta learn to make failure your fuel. When I was on the national team only dreaming of playing alongside me ham. Y'all know her. I had the opportunity to visit the national team's locker room. The thing that struck me. Most wasn't my heroes grass Dane cleats or their names and numbers hanging above their lockers. It was a picture. It was a picture that someone had taped next to the door. So that would be the last thing every player saw before she headed out to the training pitch. You might guess it was a picture of their last big win or of them standing on the podium accepting gold medals, but it wasn't. It was a picture of their longtime rival the Norwegian national team celebrating after having beaten the USA in the nineteen ninety five World Cup. In that locker room. I learned that an order become my very best on the pitch and off I need to spend my life letting the feelings and lessons of failure transform into my power failure is fuel fuel is power. Women. Listen to me, we must embrace failure as our fuel instead of accepting it as our destruction as Michelle Obama's recently said I wish that girls could fail as well. As men do and be okay. Because let me tell you watching men fail up. It's frustrating. It's frustrating to see men blow it and win. We hold ourselves. So these crazy, crazy standards wolf pack. Fail up blow it and win. Number two. Lead from the bench. Imagine this you scored more goals than any human being on the planet. Female or male. Co captain and led Tina say in almost every category for the past decade and union coach sit down and decide together that you won't be a starter. And your last World Cup for team USA. So that sucked. You'll feel bench sometimes to you'll be passed over for the promotion taken off the project. You might even be finding yourself holding a baby instead of a break briefcase. Watching your colleagues get ahead. Here's what's important. You're allowed to be disappointed. When it feels like life's benched you. What you aren't allowed to do is miss your opportunity to lead from the bench during that last World Cup. My teammates told me that my presence. My support my vocal and relentless belief in them from the bench is what gave them the confidence. They needed to win that championship. If you're not a leader on the bench. Then don't call yourself a leader on the field. You're

"I think the idea is fantastic. And and. Sh if that could happen. It would be great. I just do not we are so far away from this. But I do think the idea of just reminding yourself, I I like the idea that image that goes hand in hand with this that he was talking about that what we share together is infinitely greater than what separates us. I think that that is something that if we could be constantly reminding ourselves that we are so similar. We are built of Dessange things we we we want generally speaking, the same things in life, and to remember that as much as off as often as we can I think we'll get us closer to transcending the idea of individualism. But I don't think we're going to completely. P come one big community. Well, and as optimistic as I am, I tend to agree. I think that it's also probably not what everyone needs to do. I everyone got their path. And they've got their way of finding their their with their way to higher consciousness. So for me, one of the things that I really love doing is sharing my experiences and talking about other people's experiences with other people, and that's one of the reasons why we're doing this podcast if I were to only focus on my own individual enlightenment. I would probably go to a monastery become a monk, and you would never hear from me again, and the people that are listening. Some of them are probably like, I'm I'm cool with that Jeremy, but there's, but there's actually, you know, the conversation that we're having here would stop. And that to me that that could be a bad thing that that's not exactly the path that I think that would be the best path for me. I think the best path for me at. This time in my life is to discuss these issues with people like you and people like listeners of the show, and and that to me is kind of my path for seeking higher consciousness, and I don't know I don't know that that's transcending individualism. I think that might even be going deeper into individualism, but at to your point realizing that though I have my own beliefs on things, and we get to hear about that. You have your beliefs on things we get to hear about that. We have obviously people that we have every single week a couple times a week that we hear their perspectives on it back to the to the greater idea that the we do have differences in opinion, we share for more than we disagree on. And I think that's I think that's a really good point. And probably the best point weakened in this podcast on so. I think we'll go ahead and wrap up this episode. You can find the sources for all the content in this episode in the show notes of this obsessive. So until next time. I'm Jeremy Fisher and John Connor reminding you to keep moving keep thinking and keep growing..

"Welcome to the pick. The brain podcasts where we pick the brains of the brightest minds in the areas of health self-improvement productivity and kicking ass at life. I am Jeremy Fisher always alongside my co host Aaron Falconer right Erin today. We are going to hear part two of the speech that was started by Neil Gaiman. And you might have thought that he gave all the bits of wisdom that he possibly could in the last episode, but he's got some good nuggets in this one to you ready. Listen up. Yes, starting out is to copy, and that's not a bad thing. Most of his only find their own voices off doing sounded like a lot of other people. But the one thing that you have that nobody else has is you you'll voice you'll mind your story, you'll vision, so right and draw and build them play and dance and live as only you can. The moment that you feel that just possibly you're walking down the street. Naked exposing too much of your heart and your mind, and what exists on the inside showing too much of yourself. That's the moment. You may be starting to get it. Right. The things I've done that were the best with the things. I was the least certain about the store is where I was sure they either work or more likely be the kind of embarrassing failures that people would gather together and discuss until the end of time. They always have that in common. Looking back at them people. Explain why they were inevitable successes. And when I was doing them, I had no idea. I still don't I'm where would be the fun and making something you knew was going to work. And sometimes the things I did really didn't work. There were stories of mine that have never been reprinted some of them never even left the house. But I learned as much from them as I did from the things that worked. Okay. Six late. I'm going to pass on some secret freelance and knowledge secret knowledge is always good. And it's useful to anyone who ever plans to create art for other people to enter a freelance world of any kind. I learned it in comics, but it applies to other fields to and it's this people get hired because somehow they get hired. In my case. I did something which these days would be easy to check them. We'll get into lots of trouble. And when I started out in those pre internet days seemed like a sensible career strategy when I was asked by editors who had written for I lied. I listed a handful of magazines that sounded likely and I sounded confident and I got jobs..

"Is this all there is I don't feel like I am the person that I should be to have gotten here in this place. Seems like there should be more. It seems like maybe that's contributing to why there are so many people who find success, and then realize that it's not everything it was cracked up to be. And then start struggling with depression and alcohol addiction, and all those kinds of things, you know, what you sure your father has to to to counsel people about. But the other thing is what you were talking about with losing your creativity. The more successful you get I think that's kind of where he was talking about. No matter where you are in life make good art. That's part of this talk. Yeah. I think that really is the core of what he was trying to get at which is you're gonna have your downs. You're gonna have your ups, you may not make it you make it. But you should always be trying to do something that's true to you. And I think that's a really good thing to hold on to win. We're going through any stage of life. I think that's such a good way to look at it as try to find a way to make good art. Even if you're going through challenging times things are going great. And it doesn't matter. Find some way to do something that fulfills you think that's just super powerful super powerful that should be a T shirt. You're gonna do it. He. It should be a painting because then you're thinking. Yeah. Because then it's you know, you're making art. Want a statement? So div feel that might be paradoxical. I'm confused. I think we should wrap this episode before I confuse myself in more. Okay. Let's do it. All right. Well, we're gonna hear part two of Neil gamons speech on the next episode. But until next time, I'm Jeremy Fisher. And I'm Erin Falkiner reminding you to keep moving keep thinking keep growing..

"Welcome to the pick the brain podcast where we pick the brains of the brightest minds in the areas of health, self-improvement productivity and kicking ass at life. I am Jeremy Fisher always alongside my co host Aaron Falconer will Aaron today. We've got first of a two part Assode. We're going to hear from Neil Gaiman who is an author who is known from writing known for writing stardust American gods. Core lean which they turned into a movie and a bunch of other stuff. You looking forward to today show very much. So all right. Let's get started with part one from Neil Gaiman. I never really expected to find myself giving advice to people graduating from an establishment of higher education. I never graduated from any such establishment. I never even started at one I escaped from school as soon as I could when the prospect of four more years of enforced learning before I could become the right right wanted to be seemed stifling. I got out into the world. I wrote and I became a better writer the more. I wrote, and I wrote some more, and nobody seemed to mind that I was making it all up as I went too long. They just read what I wrote, and they paid me for it. Or they didn't. And often they commissioned me to write something else for them, which has left me with a healthy respect and fund nece for higher education that those that my friends and family who attended universities cured off long ago. Looking back. I've had a remarkable ride. I'm not sure I can call it a career because a career implies that I had some kind of career plan, and I never did the nearest thing. I had was a list I made when I was about fifteen of everything I wanted to do I wanted to write an adult novel children's book comic and movie record an audio book writing episode of doctor who and so on I didn't have a career. I just did the next thing on the list. So I thought I'd tell you everything I wish I'd known starting out and a few things that looking back on it. I suppose I did know and that also give you the best piece of advice I'd ever got which I completely fail to follow. First of all when you start out on a career in the arts. You have no idea what you're doing. This is great. People who know what they're doing know the rules. And they know what is possible. What is impossible? You do not. And you should not the rules on what is possible and impossible in the arts were made by people who had not tested, the bounds of the possible by going beyond them. And you can if you don't know it's impossible. It's easier to do because nobody's done it before. They haven't made up rules. Stop anyone doing that particular thing again..

"I'm impacting people in a way in this. I'm wait. That's not the first time. I've heard that let me take a look at that. You know, what I mean it all comes back to you in. This instance, really, you know, what I mean as opposed to like somebody just being, you know, as I said knocked toxic or. Or a naysayer and trying to bring you down for reasons of their own that have nothing to do with you. Yeah. Well, I I think that that kind of speaks to the idea that I've always wanted to try to take advice from people whose opinion I value and ignore the opinions of people that whose opinions, I don't value, right. And I this is going to say something that's not popular. But I believe to be true. This is my own opinion. So because we're talking about opinions, you're going to hear my opinion. I I don't think everyone's opinion matters. Right. I don't think everyone's opinion carries the same weight. I really don't. And I know it's not a popular thing to say everyone wants to say, well, everyone's opinion matters. No, you know, what if you don't have experience in an area. I don't think your opinion matters as much as someone who has experienced at an area. For example. If I wanna learn how to lose weight, I'm gonna find the person that lost fifty pounds who used to be heavy and lost fifty pounds. I'm not gonna I'm not gonna way the opinion of someone who came out of the womb slim and beautiful as much as I do someone who actually went to the experience of losing way. Keep my mouth shut. No. But do you know what? I mean. Like, I honestly like if it's one hundred percent, right? Yeah. You have to be very cognizant of the people of the opinions that you're asking for where they're coming from the what's the source material here. Exactly, like, it's it's if I were to give by opinion about how woman feels about something that that does not mean as much as your opinion air, and it absolutely does not mean as much as your opinion because you experienced it. You know, what it is to be a woman in my opinion doesn't matter as much and anyway, so that's kind of another it's not a popular view. But I I don't I don't think that everyone's opinion matters the same amounts, and I think when somebody's telling you, you're good or you're bad at something. I think it's important to decide will does this person's opinion carry weight. If it does maybe I'm wrong. I gotta think about it. But if it doesn't then maybe that's something you just kinda let go and ignore right and ask if that opinion was even asked for in the play first place. That's true. Well, a lot of the unqualified opinions are coming unasked. Yeah. That's true. Well, you know, what my opinion is about the show. I think it's awesome. Okay. It's time to wrap up. Well, it's time to wrap up, but I do enjoy doing the show. I have a lot of fun doing the show too since it is a rep up. Let's go ahead and do that the sources for the clips in this episode can be found in the show notes of this episode until next time. I'm Jeremy Fisher.

"Welcome to the pick. The brain podcasts where we pick the brains of the brightest minds in the areas of health self-improvement productivity and kicking ass at life. I am Jeremy Fisher always alongside my co host Aaron Falconer blaring today, we are going to hear from Dr Jordan Peterson who is a clinical psychologist and has made a lot of waves in the self-improvement world. Looking forward today show, a very polarizing guy who I think is incredibly incredibly incredibly smart, no matter which side of the fence, you fall on and Canadia glad you I knew your in excited about him being Canadian. All right. Let's get started. Buddha finds his enlightenment under a tree. It's not fluke that that's the case that's his natural environment. And he's sitting in the Lotus here. The Lotus opens up this thing that springs up from the depths. The sits there eliminated the same way. He's got a halo the son that stands for higher consciousness. And he's he's transcended by accepting. The fact that life is suffering. He's transcended the limitations that are part of mortality. You see that similar? That's wass to you. See it there. It's reversed the Nazis reversed. It. Well, think about that. They were stupid symbolism. Their symbols had meaning is what this was represented was what this represents reversed. Well, that's a very bad idea. This is the thing that this. This idea is what enables people to transcend their suffering and Buddhists. Well, don't don't be too attached to things. And what does that mean? It doesn't mean denied the world it might mean denied the world if you're too in love with the material with material well-being, let's say than your pathway to transcendence and meaning might be to abandon that. Because it's it's constraining you it's making you less than you could be, but the the fundamental lesson the more fundamental lesson that's underneath that is don't let what you are stop you from being what you could be. Right. And so then the question is what do you identify with do you identify with what you are?.

"Welcome to the pick the brain podcasts where we picked the brains of the brightest minds in the areas of health, self-improvement productivity, and kicking ass at life. I'm Jeremy Fisher always alongside my co host Aaron, Falconer. All right, Aaron. Today we are going to hear from good ole mister Rogers, Fred Rogers for you. Were you a fan of Mr. Rogers when he was on TV. You know, it's really weird. I never quite got it when I was young and now I just went to go see his documentary two weeks ago as we were talking about earlier, and I was like, oh my God, I'm such a fan now. This is so weird. Can I give. This is, but he's a sage guy. He had a huge impact on a lot of people, and that's why he's on today's show. So let's get started. Our world, hang Slyke, magnificent jewel in the vast of space. Every one of us is a part of that Jewell a facet of that Jewell and in the perspective of Infinity. Our differences are infinitessimal. We are intimately related. May we never even pretend that we are not. Have you heard my favorite story that came from the Seattle Special Olympics. Well, for the hundred yard dash, there were nine contestants, all of them, so called physically or mentally disabled. All nine of them assembled at the starting line and at the sound of the gun, they took off but not long afterward. One little boy stumbled and fell and hurt his knee and began to cry. The other eight children heard him crying a slowdown, turned around and ran back to him. Every one of them ran back to him. One little girl with down syndrome bent down and kissed the boy and said, this will make it better. The little boy got, and he and the rest of the runners linked their arms together and joyfully walked to the finish line. They all finished the race at the same time. And when they did everyone in that stadium stood up and clapped and whistled and cheered for a long, long time. People who were there are still telling the story with great delight. And you know why? Because deep down, we know that what matters in this life is more than winning for ourselves. What really matters is helping others win to even if it means slowing down and changing our course now. And then. And these ceus Manley Severino ass- Bowie Theus what a name was the last of the great Roman philosophers and the first of the scholastic of the middle ages. Fifteen hundred years ago Bowie Theus wrote this sentence. Oh, happy race of mortals. If your hearts are ruled as is the universe by love. I was once invited to sit in on a master class of six young Chillaz from the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. The master teacher was yoyo mom. Now, yoyo is the most of their Ori ended. Genius. I've ever known his music comes from a very deep place within his speaking. And during that masterclass yoyo gently lead those young cellists into understandings about their instruments, their music and their cell, which some of them told me later, they'd carry with them forever. I can still see the face of one young man who had just finished playing a movement of Brahms cello sonata when you're, you're said, nobody else. Can make this sound, you may, of course, he meant that as a compliment to the young man, nevertheless, event that also for everyone in the class, nobody else can make the sound you make. Nobody else can shoes to make that particular sound in that particular way. I'm very much interested in choices and what it is and who it is that enable us human beings to make the choices we make all through our lives. What Schloss is lead to ethnic cleansing. What choices lead to healing. What is lead to the destruction of the environment the year Rozhin of the Sabbath. Suicide bombings, or teenagers shooting teachers, what choices in courage, heroism, in the midst of chaos. I have a lot of framed things in my office which people have given to me through the years on my walls are Greek and Hebrew, and Russian and Chinese. And beside my chair is a French sentence from Santa Qixue privies little prints. It reads less sauce, yell at abbvie z. for lays your. What is the sensual is in visible to the I. Well, what does he -sential about you. And who are those who have helped you become the person you are. Ending one who has ever graduated from college. Anyone who has ever been able to sustain a good work has had at least one person and often many who have believed in him or her. We just don't get to be competent human beings without a lot of different investments from others. I'd like to give you all and invisible gift. Gift of a silent minute to think about those who have helped you become who you are today. Some of them may be here right now. Some may be far away. Some like my astronomy professor may even be in heaven. But wherever they are, if they've loved you and encourage you and wanted what was best in life for you. They're right inside yourself, and I feel that you deserve quiet time on this special occasion to devote some thought to them. So let's just take a minute in honor of those who have cared about us all along the way. One silent man. Whomever
