“Sometimes what appears to be negative is the most positive thing you can do. What appears to be ‘safe’ is sometimes the most dangerous thing you can be doing for your life”
Focusing on receptivity over repression, it’s a call to embrace the power of both negativity and positivity as important forces to be experienced without getting lost in either extreme. And we discuss how to break free from the entrenched, looping stories we tell ourselves about ourselves that don’t serve the lives we aspire to lead.
Struck by the serenity of Jack’s environment, it was immediately clear that this is a man who has mindfully excised unnecessary distraction from his life — an introvert who prioritizes solitude to perform the deep thinking required to shepherd, to the best of his ability, two of the largest and most successful technology companies in the world.
This conversation is an exploration of that interior life.
“My definition of success is doing what you love. I feel many people do things because they feel they have to, and are hesitant to risk following their passion.”
The profound implications presented by convergent advances in both biotech and infotech. And why Big Data harkens the end of humanism.
We explore the problematic nature of our outdated education system. The importance of professional flexibility in the age of automation. Why clarity is the new superpower. And the practices Yuval relies upon to deploy his prodigious intellectual acumen.
“Some days it just flows and I feel like I’m born to do this, other days it feels like I’m trudging through hell. Every day I make the choice to show up and see what I’ve got, and to try and be better. My advice: keep showing up.”
STRENGTH IN STILLNESS: BOB ROTH ON THE POWER OF TRANSCENDENTAL MEDITATION & BRINGING CALM TO THE CENTER OF LIFE’S STORM
Thank you Bob for bringing TM into this world. It was one of the few meditations that truly resonated with me. It started me on this whole meditation and inner journey.
He also knows what it’s like to be forgotten. To grieve. To grow. To embrace that which is most important. And ultimately express his truth through art. Not long after, Mike was hit with a trifecta of heartache. He weathered a break up with his girlfriend. His father passed after a bout with brain cancer. And his friend and frequent collaborator Avicii took his own life. It was a dark time for the young musician. But the life of an artist is one of persistence. No matter what, Mike continued to show up for music.The result, and his best work to date, is the recently released album, A Real Good Kid — a mature, vulnerable and infectious pop meditation on grief, celebrity, ego, loss, art and personal growth.
Purpose: I create an empowering context for curious and hungry people looking for fulfillment, experiences, and creativity. We do this by developing their growth mindset, introducing self-love, and powerful group experiences. It results in people with strong boundaries, resilient mental health, and practical life skills
People leave with the ability to land their dream job, have autonomy and flexibility with their lifestyle, travel the world, and create from their heart and soul.
Davidson was once broke, insecure, low-confidence, and frustrated by doing all the wrong activities. Addicted to drugs, validation, and wallowing in self-pity. No relationship to family, and at the mercy of other people’s suggestions and opinions.
It was hell.
After spending $100k hiring different coaches, traveling the world doing workshops around the world, reading>1000 books, and through curiosity, have created the most effective system to remove people from that situation. My life’s work is to bring joy and abundance to people who as on a similar path as I was and bring back the joy and abundance of their life.
Through shared experiences and storytelling, I inspire and model behaviors that lead to a richer, more fulfilled life full of joy, experiences, passion, and ecstasy from the richness of relationships and being able to experience the depths of the human experience.
