[MIND] Your Driving Force
In this episode, Doug gives an introduction to the 6 human needs that we all have. The way we order these needs determines the way in which we view our life. By discovering which human needs speak to you the most, you get to understand what drives you in all of your life actions and how you can best use that for your benefit.
[MIXED BAG] Slay A Dragon
Have you ever seen an old sailor map? The kind where they have the lay of the land, but they also have areas with dragons drawn on to showcase that area as a “danger zone”. Now, the majority of people would avoid those areas like the plague, but there were select few who would see those areas as opportunity. As the untapped area that not many were willing to go to.
In today’s episode, we talk about a personal experience with plant medicine, what it looks like to slay your dragons, and where you might be allowing the ‘dragons’ to stop you from moving forward.
[MIXED BAG] Invest In Yourself
When is the last time you invested in you? In bettering yourself? Money comes and goes. Many of the people Doug has worked with have made hundreds of millions of dollars and then go bankrupt. Many have made their money and then lost it, time and time again. It comes and goes. Businesses get built and burn down, but something that someone can never take from you is your own personal growth, your own knowledge.
[BUSINESS] The Cost Of Settling
Have you ever felt deep in your bones like you KNOW there is more to this life than how you’re currently living it? Have you ever felt like you were settling in your relationships? Like you just kept lowering your expectations in order for things to “work”? If any of this relates to you, you won’t want to miss this episode.
[RELATIONSHIPS] Words Cannot Be Unsaid
There's a lot of things in life that you can undo, you can take back and no one will ever know. Words aren't one of those things. Yes, if you say something, you can go back and correct the situation, apologize and take ownership, and you should each and every time. Right? Words themselves cannot be unsaid. If you say something mean, vulgar or hurtful to somebody, they can't be taken back. The person may forgive you, but you can never take those words back.
[SOUL] The Spotlight Effect
The spotlight effect ... well, each time when you go into a social situation or you're thinking about making a big decision, what naturally occurs to most of us is what's called "the spotlight effect". That's where we think that everybody is looking on us. They're looking at us and they're concentrating on the things that we're doing and the ways that we're behaving. When the truth is this is just a way that you limit yourself from actually achieving your potential.
