    Skepticism May Be Harmful or Fatal if Swallowed by Steve Pavlina on Self Improvement & Growth

    Skepticism May Be Harmful or Fatal if Swallowed by Steve Pavlina on Self Improvement & Growth

    Discover all of the podcasts in our network, search for specific episodes, get the Optimal Living Daily workbook, and learn more at: OLDPodcast.com.
    Episode 3253:
    Steve Pavlina warns that excessive skepticism, especially when turned inward, can be detrimental. Instead of fostering intelligence and success, it breeds fear and doubt, stifling opportunities and growth. Pavlina encourages using courage and common sense to embrace risks and achieve greater success.
    Read along with the original article(s) here: https://stevepavlina.com/blog/2005/11/skepticism-may-be-harmful-or-fatal-if-swallowed/
    Quotes to ponder:
    "Skepticism originally came about as a form of opposition to dogma. The general idea behind skepticism is to avoid swallowing foolish beliefs."
    "Skepticism is like slashing your car’s tires to prevent one of them from going flat."
    "The skeptic says, 'Let’s see if this will work.' The intelligent person says, 'Let’s see this work.'"

    Peace Is Your True Nature by Richard Paterson of Think Less and Grow Rich on Meditation

    Discover all of the podcasts in our network, search for specific episodes, get the Optimal Living Daily workbook, and learn more at: OLDPodcast.com.
    Episode 3252:
    Richard Paterson reveals that profound peace is our true nature, accessible through meditation. He explains that by quieting the mind, even momentarily, we can experience the inherent peace that always exists within us, offering a transformative perspective on handling anxiety and unhappiness.
    Read along with the original article(s) here: https://www.thinklessandgrowrich.com/peace-is-your-true-nature/
    Quotes to ponder:
    "Peace is not something to find or create but something to recognise."
    "Don’t try to be a peaceful person. Be peace."
    "There is no such thing as peace of mind. Mind means disturbance; restlessness itself is mind."

Easy on the ear ;)

Such an original idea for a podcast and I love that you are sharing the spotlight with so many talented writers and coaches. P.S. Justin I might just have a little crush on your voice!

Really helpful

This blog and the OLD affiliate blogs (in particular Finances, Relationships and Business) have helped me through a tough separation, as well as minimising aspects of my life, getting clearer on goals and strategies for executing on them, improving my relationships and much more.

It's really great to have a treasure trove of ideas and insights collated and made available to listeners who prefer to consume their content in audio form to fit in with their lifestyle (which is my situation). Highly reccomended!

Thanks Justin and team.
