Ep# 88: No Pain No Gain?
Dr. Kashey addresses the popular saying “No pain, no gain!” While it’s commonly used as a motivating phrase, Dr. Kashey argues that it is a conflicting philosophy that confuses correlation and causation. It assumes that in order for there to be success, pain must be involved, which is a distorted belief. Although progress may require some sacrifice, we should not be conditioned to expect misery every time we take a step forward in life. Instead of pain, we should aim for rational, constructive, flexible, and scientific thinking. Only then will we be able to make the permanent behavior changes needed to be fit, happy, and successful.
Ep# 87: Still Struggling With Being Out-of-Shape
Dr. Kashey relieves us of our perfectionist demands that only create frustration and ultimately end in self-sabotage. People tend to act based on what they believe rather than what they actually want. If a belief system is crooked, then actions aligned with those crooked beliefs will lead to undesirable outcomes. Then, in an effort to make sense of the conflict between what someone does and the results they’re getting, irrational thought processes can arise. Upon closer investigation, it might be found that unrealistic perfectionist demands are disguised as valued beliefs. This is why reasonable preferences are more helpful than perfectionist demands.
Ep# 86: Is the Past Really the Past?
Dr. Kashey shows us why experiences of the past have a minority influence on what we choose to think and do now. Learning from the past is one thing, but repeatedly bringing up the past and using it as an excuse for poor choices in the present is detrimental to reaching our goals. Although it can feel like the past is a problem in the present, this is only because we sometimes use the past as a tool to create problems in the present. This can be avoided if we stop allowing events of the past to have an inflated influence on how we think and act in the present. We have the power to choose the right influences as well as refuse the wrong influences.
Ep# 85: Why Do I Keep Getting Fatter!?
Dr. Kashey knows that hitting goals is a vital aspect for each of our definitions of “success”. This is why Dr. Kashey has studied human tendency when it comes to approaching these goals. Between a dogmatic approach and a scientific approach, Dr. Kashey believes that incorporating more of the latter can have a healthier impact towards our relationship with our goal-setting process and our inevitable failures or successes.
Although Dr. Kashey acknowledges the need for both dogmatic and scientific systems of thinking due to the human need for tension to evolve and become better, he also notes that seeing outcomes as something more of a product of consistency that can be iterated and learned from rather than as something expected, or as a binary “yes or no”.
At the end of the day, Dr. Kashey reminds us that subscribing too much to rigid frameworks of thought is dangerous in the long term, as it damages our sense of self and of others, compared to healthier frameworks where observing, learning, persistence, and resilience are valued.
Ep# 84: Can’t Stop Sabotaging Yourself
Dr. Kashey addresses individuals who can’t seem to stop sabotaging themselves no matter how hard they try. Five major flags that set people up to fail include, 1) living in vague-ville, 2) making up for “vague-ry” with grand gestures, 3) a poor track record, 4) they believe there must be pain for there to be gain, and 5) they’re stuck to their guns. After expanding on these five flags, Dr. Kashey promises that they’re all fixable! By using his stimulus-response-outcome model, we are able to stop the frustrating downward spiral of self-sabotage and instead make real progress towards our goals. Our belief system determines what we want and the demands we place upon ourselves.
Ep# 83: Your Relationship With Food
In this episode, Dr. Kashey briefly reviews the S (stimulus) in SRO before jumping into the outcomes component of SRO. To understand outcomes, you need to understand that your belief system contains two key parts: the desire not to die and the learned behavior to truly live. While those may seem very similar, the desire to truly live is a learned behavior, while the desire to not die is innate. This belief system is the body responsible for your outlook and designates the desired outcomes you would like to achieve. For example, food is an integral part of not dying and can be essential for thriving, but your relationship to food will arise from your own beliefs about food. Join Dr. Kashey as he helps you restore balance to the force and investigates the impact SRO can have on you.
Best intro of any podcast…… and it gets even better from there.
I love this show!
Highly recommend this podcast - easy to listen to, short episodes with SO MUCH packed in. Dr. Kashey does an excellent job breaking down habits, mindset, and the science of mind and body while relating it all to food and nutrition. He’s one of the best out there, for sure. Do yourself a favor and follow this guy!
This podcast is great for quick listens on a variety of topics to improve yourself. Love the perspective on really getting down to the why’s of our behaviors versus masking it with ideas that may not work for us. Great introduction to concepts for putting ourselves first.
