We all know how the west was won – rugged individualism, a bold and daring approach to the new frontier, and a fierce belief in personal liberty and independence. But that does not describe the west or, more specifically, America any longer. We’ve traded individualism for collectivism, risk-taking for easy handouts, and liberty for big brother.

My guest today, Axel Kaiser, makes the case against leftist ideology, why America is the last glimmer of hope in the world, and how a basic understanding of economics could free us all. Today, we talk about public debt and entitlement, whether the leftist ideology that permeates our culture is based in ignorance, stupidity, or malice, why the meritocracy isn’t a representation of power hierarchies, and how, if we continue down this path, we may see a new age of darkness.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Defining socialism
  • True capitalism vs. crony capitalism
  • The future of America and identity politics
  • What would civil war look like in the US
  • Is our way of life sustainable?
  • If we lose the US we lose the whole world
  • There is objective reality
  • What happens when you get rid of objective truth?
  • The impact of “losing the universities”

It’s no surprise that there is an increasing amount of insanity in the world today, most of it outside of our control. But there is also an immense amount of insanity taking place in the space 6” between our ears – our brains. Fortunately, that’s the realm we can control and, once we learn to do just that, we can achieve sanity in the otherwise chaotic experience of life.

My guest today is mindset coach to some of the greatest athletes to play like Tom Brady, Desmond Howard, and Michael Phelps, to name a few. His name is Greg Harden and he makes the case for creating sanity out of our lives. We talk about becoming an expert on one subject, the narcissistic tinge of “self-love” and a better alternative, why you must learn to grow through adversity, not merely go through it, four basic needs every man desires and how he can fulfill those for himself, and learning to know yourself and embrace complete acceptance of who you are.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Control what you can control
  • Become an expert on yourself
  • Three levels of fitness: physical, mental, spiritual
  • Grow through it, don’t just goo through it
  • Having fun is up to you
  • People treat you then way you treat yourself
  • If you hate me, that’s on you
  • Be hungry and humble
  • Stop looking for love in all the wrong places
  • Embrace the here and now

So many of us are so trapped in our current ways of thinking that we do not allow ourselves to take in new information and apply it in a way that may threaten our current reality or identity. Combine that need we have to be congruent in our own lives with the desire others have for us to remain in the status quo and it becomes extremely difficult for us to evolve into new ways of thinking and behaving.

My guest today is a man who has had to continually look at the way he is showing up and incorporate a new set of beliefs and values to drive his life forward. His name is Jamie Kilstein and, today, we talk about individual sovereignty, spirituality vs. the institution of religion, why “grifting” is a concept designed to keep the status quo, caution in becoming overly apathetic, why you should get comfortable with changing your mind, and how to allow yourself to evolve.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Being honest and humble gives your more credibility 
  • Leaving room for God to do his thing
  • We know what the “right work” is
  • As Christians, we should be the least self-righteous
  • Surround yourself with people who will help you avoid traps and pitfalls
  • Investigates your beliefs
  • Obsession vs. apathy regarding politics
  • Its ok to change your mind

Regret is often used to self-sabotage and retreat into sorrow and victimization. But it doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, regret can be leveraged as a powerful tool to accomplish your most challenging objectives moving forward. Unfortunately, too many men wallow in regret and defeat instead of learning how to tap into their massive and almost unlimited potential.

Today, I am joined by threepeat guest, Jon Acuff, to talk about regret, potential, goal planning, and success. We discuss pursuing small versus large goals, the power of becoming what Jon calls a, “handle maker,” using discernment with regards to the self-development information we consume, the proper response to the, “must-be-nice,” crowd, why you should avoid calling your problems, your problems, and so much more.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Writing content that will resonate in multiple spaces
  • Focusing on your “best moments” instead of your worst
  • We naturally gravitate toward accomplishments, experiences, relationships, or objects
  • Navigating the overwhelming amount of self-improvement advice and content 
  • Easy goals vs. hard goals vs. guaranteed goals
  • Set up tactics or easy goals along the path to your big goals
  • The best response to “it must be nice”
  • The hills pay the bills
  • Unless you are keeping score, you have no idea where you are on the path

Some of the most common questions we receive (and this has been consistent over the past 8 years) is how to make a marriage work. And, with the breakdown of my own marriage over the past year, it’s clear to me more than ever how hard the union between two people can be. But that doesn’t mean it’s impossible and it doesn’t mean it isn’t worth pursuing.

The benefits of marriage are plenty including the shared responsibilities, the fulfillment found in service to another, and the growth that must take place in order for a marriage to work. Today, I’m joined by Seth and Melanie Studley who focus on helping couples work through their marital challenges and create a thriving relationship. We talk getting back to the basics, the growth vs. fixed mindset, why men must cast vision, common mistakes in marriage, how to recognize the tests of women, and so much more.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Marriage therapy vs. marriage coaching
  • Women unconsciously (and consciously) test men
  • Actually getting on a better path instead of just manipulating
  • Taking extreme ownership in your marriage
  • Erecting appropriate boundaries
  • Creating a shared vision for your marriage
  • You have to be willing to fight
  • Making changes for the right reasons
  • You need to clearly communicate what you want
  • We need affirmation

With roughly 97% of the population eating meat, it’s mind-blowing that 85% of the American meat supply chain is in the hands of four corporations, two of which are foreign. What’s also disturbing is the deliberate manipulation of beef prices, the rise in food intellectual property (IP) in the form of GMO food solutions and fake meat products grown in a lab, and the regulatory constraints placed on small cattle ranches trying to make our food supply chain more robust and secure.

My guest today, AJ Richards, is leading the charge when it comes to a new way to deliver beef to the American consumer directly from the ranches themselves in order to cut out the excess cost, regulation, manipulation, and build out a stronger, more diverse supply of food. Today, we talk about the crumbling food supply chain, our import to export dilemma, overcoming the monopolies of food producers, why homesteading in America is once again growing, and so much more.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

  • City slicker turned rancher
  • Losing farms is national security issue
  • Beef supply chain is controlled by 4 major companies
  • Creating an Uber or AirBnb for meat
  • Inspiring the next generation of ranchers
  • Keeping the family engaged and interested
  • Meat distribution should be regional, rather than national
  • Let the local economy dictate the price
  • The dangers of opposing the establishment

It’s clear by now the stigma that once surrounded psychedelics has lost some of its power. With the use of psychedelics like Psilocybin, Ayahuasca, and even LSD becoming much more mainstream through personalities like Joe Rogan and all we hear about “plant-medicine,” from some of the most influential people today, it’s time we all start taking a closer look at the ins and outs, pros and cons, and features and setbacks of the world of psychedelics.

Today I am joined by Matt Zemon, a Master in Medical Science in both psychology and neuroscience, and author of his latest book, Psychedelics for Everyone. I am naturally a bit of a skeptic so I took that approach on a topic I admittedly don’t know a whole lot about. We discuss why the stigma around psychedelics and how did that come to be, the use of psychedelics to treat shame, blame, and guilt and other symptoms of “treatment resistant PTSD,” how psychedelics have been used to help people overcome crippling alcohol and drug addiction, the spiritual journey one may discover on his exploration into these medicines, side effects to consider, and how many men are using psychedelics to expand their consciousness.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Psychedelics is a technology
  • The psychedelic journey is often a top 5 experience
  • Is there a benefit to shame, blame, and guilt
  • Defining PTSD
  • Psychedelics are not for everyone
  • There’s more to it than just “trust the science”
  • What is a psychedelic?
  • Psychedelics should not be seen as a “cure”
  • Using psychedelics to get off other drugs
  • Side effects of psychedelics

In this week’s FRIDAY FIELD NOTES, Ryan Michler discusses the concept of “leadership eclipsing” and breaks down why we need to and how we can avoid this. Hit Ryan up on Instagram at @ryanmichler and share what’s working in your life.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

 

Why to avoid eclipsing:

  1. Your team members cannot grow if you are sucking up all of the resources
  2. If you are sucking everything up and your team cant grow, you can’t grow either
  3. Your mission can’t expand

 

How to avoid eclipsing your people

  1. The leader is NOT the center of the universe
  2. If other people win, you win
  3. Leaders create leaders
  4. Leaders deflect light and absorb darkness
  5. Exercise humility

 

Tactics to empower others:

  1. Give responsibility to others
  2. Don’t solve people’s problems
  3. Communicate effectively
  4. Praise and critique

The most powerful benefit of this podcast is that each and every week, we get to listen to ultra-successful men, learn what makes them tick, hear which pitfalls to avoid, and simply apply those beneficial lessons into our own lives. And, my guest today is someone imminently qualified to impart his hard-fought wisdom on both the professional and personal front. He is serial entrepreneur, Vic Keller.

And, today, we talk about the power of utilizing our instinct (and how it can be developed), intentionality, and innovation to create long-lasting results in our lives. We also cover the difference between gurus and guides (and how to spot each), a simple formula for how the human operating system works, why you should strongly consider hiring mentors, how to decide what defines you, and so much more.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Starting with a side hustle
  • Creating teams
  • Hiring talent leads to margin in your life
  • Build up others, not just yourself
  • The business can be all about you
  • Guru vs. guide
  • Understanding discernment
  • The importance of intentionality
  • The Chick-fil-A talent model
  • Instinct can be learned
  • We have incredible access to coaching
