    Prioritizing how to optimize your health gets more confusing by the day. With every study, every breakthrough, and every podcast, knowing which diet, exercise and sleep strategy and approach is best feels impossible.

    Naveen Jain is the founder of Viome and many other businesses. He’s known for disrupting industries he has no knowledge or experience with. His approach to health and how people can increase their healthspan lies in the oral cavity, and everything that happens throughout the digestive track.

    This conversation brings together all the reasons you’ll want to start paying more attention to not just what you want to eat, but what and how you’re feeding your gut microbiome. How food breaks down and metabolizes matters to how the bacteria in your body respond which are responsible for disease and health.
    Eat to feed the bacteria in your microbiomeFood from one country can have an entirely different effect than food from anotherYour stool and saliva predicts everything about your health.
    QUOTES:
    “There’s no such thing as universal healthy food.”

    “The nature of this ecosystem, it is so complex that when we change one thing we believe that's the only change we’re changing"

    “We’re getting closer and closer, but we are nowhere near understanding the human body’s complexities.”

    “Antibiotics are only designed to attack bacteria and not viruses, [...] the more we take antibiotics it’s like throwing a nuclear bomb inside. It kills everything, good, bad, ugly…”

    “I really believe that within a decade we’ll be able to solve the problem of cancer from the human body.”

    There you can register and get access to a free workshop. So you already know that success doesn’t necessarily mean living a fulfilling life. Many people reach levels of success without having deep meaning behind their drive or desire to succeed.

    Often they arrive feeling unfulfilled and unable to bridge the gap they’ve created. Tom explains why fulfillment may be the most important factor and is almost always the solution to finding your way out of difficult situations. When you imagine living a life of fulfillment perhaps you think of gratitude, being humble and compassionate.

    When Tom breaks down his formula for fulfillment you’ll see that it’s hinged on hard work, developing skills, and being of service to others and not just yourself. The path to fulfillment may involve meditation but it’s also gritty work for hardcore people that want more than successful titles and accolades.

    QUOTES:
    “If you're not contributing to the group, you will have this sense of meaninglessness, and this is where meaning and purpose come in. [...] it is ingrained in your mind to do that.” [4:34]

    “Don't tell yourself a negative story. Don't allow yourself to loop and defeat, find people that can elevate you, find people that will, in a very real skills based way, help you see the path forward.” [9:06]

    “Fulfillment is much longer in duration, it's much more resilient, I can be fulfilled, even when things are hard, even when things aren't going my way, even when it's difficult.” [12:42]

    On Today's Episode:

    Gender roles and equality continue to be a hot topic of discussion. As women make progress in the workplace, gender pay gaps improve, educational opportunities are getting better as women break glass ceilings.

    Every action has a reaction and now we’re starting to see unintended problems arise for men. There is a mating crisis stemming from the masculinity crisis that has men and women questioning what it means to be a man.

    Chris Williamson is a podcaster, YouTuber, and former professional party boy. His podcast Modern Wisdom is the inside journey of him learning out loud from some of the most interesting people on the planet. He’s working on his first book about the mating crisis and joining Tom in this thought provoking conversation about masculinity that doesn’t diminish femininity.

    With women outperforming men in education and earning more than men in 2023 while also being the gatekeepers of sex men are turning to porn and video games, while women struggle to find male partners that complement their success.

    Chris is very clear that this important conversation is not about putting the breaks of women, but rather solving how to put the gas on men to become worthy partners that add value, protect and preserve his relationship and family.

    QUOTES:

    “The alignment of essence and action would be a good way to get started with integrity.”

    “It is a challenging time to be a man at the moment in 2023. I think that it is very hard for you to find a firm place to stand with your masculinity.”

    “The pessimist always finds out that they’re right.”

    “After a while you have to admit to yourself that your imposter syndrome has got nothing to do with your capacity and everything to do with your addiction to feeling like an imposter.”

    “The male sedation hypothesis is that men are being sedated out of their status seeking and their reproductive desires through porn and video games…”

    “I think men and women have biological predispositions that cause them to be better suited towards different sorts of tasks.”

    “I really think that we’re going to have a mating crisis on our hands which is driven out of education and employment.”

    “You have an ever increasing cohort of women competing for an ever decreasing cohort of ultra high-performing men.”

    “If you give a man purpose and the ability to achieve it he will crawl over broken glass with a smile.”

    “If you cannot find a partner that you genuinely are attracted to and that you genuinely want, that’s not good for you either. If one sex loses, both sexes lose.”


    “Men and women are supposed to raise each other up.”

    AI is going to obliterate your job. And that’s fantastic news. It will finally free you up to make real money. If you don’t panic, that is. Most people are going to panic. Don’t let that be you. Stick with me. I’ll explain. If you do a search on google about AI you’re going to find a lot of terrifying things. You’ll see art that’s indistinguishable from the best artists on the planet. You’ll hear how AI can pass college exams and get a high score on an IQ test.

    For many of you, you’ll even see examples of how AI can do your job better than you can. And this is all with a clunky phase one product. Wait until AI has been on the market for 6 months. Or more terrifyingly, 6 years. No one is safe. It will be that disruptive. But as I always tell people, moments of disruption present the biggest opportunity. But you’re going to have to be aggressive when everyone else is freaking out.

    So… is AI really THAT revolutionary? And if so, how do you really make money with it? The short answer is yes. AI will be the biggest change not just in your lifetime, but in anyone’s lifetime. It is the ultimate force multiplier. Right now, humans are limited by the rate at which they can think.

    This determines the rate at which they can solve problems. And as Elon Musk says, people are paid in direct proportion to the difficulty of the problems they solve. If you try to beat AI, you will lose. What I want to convince you of in this video is that you don’t need to beat AI, you need to use it. It almost doesn’t matter what industry you’re in, you’re going to be able to do your job better with AI. But you need to get the first mover advantage.

    To do that, you need to stop researching AI and start using it. At my company, Impact Theory, we’ve already integrated AI into our marketing funnels, our copywriting pipeline, for art concepting, final image generation, creative ideation, and human voice generation. And that’s all just in the last few months. I’ve been watching Ai closely for a while now, and we’ve reached the elbow of the exponential curve. Things are only going to start moving faster from here. The key is to not get left behind. So don’t waste a single minute lamenting about how things are changing. Change is inevitable, and change at this speed is dangerous if you’re not paying attention.

    Given how much AI has already altered our systems, over the next few years I’m expecting it to majorly accelerate our ability to test and learn. And whoever learns the fastest is going to win. This is all happening in plain sight. Everyone is talking about it. But to take advantage of this moment, I need you to do three things: Reframe your thinking around AI. Don’t see it as the enemy. See it as a tool. It really is a tool. You’re not going to be replaced by AI, at least not yet. You’re going to be replaced by a human using AI.

    Be that human that replaces others. Figure out how AI is going to disrupt you. Face it head on. Don’t run. Don’t hide. Identify your vulnerabilities. Identify all of the AI tools that are relevant to you and master them. Learn absolutely everything you can. Remember, this is the very beginning of a very aggressive revolution. Moving quickly gives you two advantages: You can rocket ahead of other people by mastering the tools. If you master the tools, people are going to turn to you because you’re able to more efficiently solve problems.

    Going back to the Elon Musk quote - if you can solve harder problems faster, you’re going to get paid more. And in these early days where most people are stuck in the “deer in headlights” mode, you have an unfair advantage. The second advantage that AI gives you is an almost unimaginable amount of efficiency in...

    On Today's Episode:

    Being in a romantic relationship can go from feeling like an incredible high to something totally frustrating. You look at your partner and wonder what’s wrong with them, why can’t they understand what you’re saying, and why do they do things that drive you crazy?

    Often, relationships go south because both of the people in the relationship have things to work through and have expectations of the other person being able to work around all of their baggage and trauma without much communication of what’s actually going on. Jay Shetty has lived the life of a monk, and as a life coach, podcaster, speaker and best selling author, he’s been able to bring his learnings and his experience to people around the world.

    His latest book, 8 Rules of Love: How to Find, It Keep It, and Let It Go addresses what it looks like to figure out love for ourselves and bring that into every kind of relationship we have.

    In this conversation with Tom, Jay talks about the things we accept as currency of love because we haven’t defined and truly understood or experienced love with ourselves first. Sitting with yourself, listening and understanding your inner dialogue and self-talk is a major part of this journey to finding healthy long lasting love. How much time have you taken to yourself between relationships with yourself?

    Check out Jay Shetty’s latest book, 8 Rules of Love: https://www.amazon.com/Rules-Love-How-Find-Keep/dp/1982183063

    QUOTES:

    “I’ve still not found a better solution to self-awareness than solitude.”

    “We’ve lost the art of self-talk and self-dialogue.”

    “That’s why sitting with your thoughts for 15 minutes is really hard because there’s nothing to numb it.”

    “If walk into a relationship and you don’t know who you are, you don’t know what you need or what you want and what you want and what you’re building and what you’re creating, you’re basically going to hope that the other person is going to answer all of those questions for you, or you’re going to outsource that inadequacy to them to make you feel worthy.”

    “We accept the currency of attention as love. We accept the currency of validation as love, [...] because we ourselves haven’t defined and experienced what love looks like on our own.”

    On Today's Episode:

    Living the good life, is pretty much at the top of everyone’s list. The problem is that nearly everyone is making decisions and acting in ways that don’t lead to their version of a good life they wish they had. To call it self-sabotage seems like an understatement. In this round of talks with Tom, we have Will, Noelle, and George digging deeper with questions about what it takes to create a good life you’re excited for every day.

    After building a billion dollar unicorn company, and investing years of transparency to bring value to people, like yourself, at scale, Tom Bilyeu is very clear and direct on exactly what it takes for you to succeed at whatever level you want to aim for.

    Key ideas from this episode you don’t want to miss:

    Top 5 behaviors and mental traps that lead to miserable life How to let go of beliefs holding you back The trade offs of being a Jack of all trades or the master of one How to use distraction as a tool of productivity Why your life is a reflection of your choices not your circumstances.

    Hearing some of these things can sting, but when you prioritize the good life over what makes you feel good right now, you take the sting and get focused on what you want, how you’ll get there, and getting relentlessly obsessed with taking massive actions everyday until you get ther.

    QUOTES:

    “Recognize that you are a deeply flawed individual that is holding yourself back, that your life is a reflection entirely of your choices and not your circumstances, and if you’re not happy with that that means you’re doing something wrong.”

    “I remind myself in business all the time, my current skill set has already taken me as far as it’s going to take me, and so if I want to go farther I have to get better. But if you don’t believe that you can get better, then you won’t put in the energy and effort into getting better.”

    “If you don’t have a massive amount of resilience you are really in trouble.”

    “The act of going ham is so intoxicating, it’s so fun, that it is the juice.”

    “People underestimate the complexity of a habit.”

    “You need a maniacal focus, you need to be lasered in on one thing and you do it to the abstraction of everything else and you do it obsessively to the point where everything else in your life ideally is falling apart…”

    “Ultimately my advice to people is to chase fulfillment.”

    “That is what self awareness is, you can finally see yourself the way other people see you.”

    “Rules, values, and desire are wildly underutilized.”

    “Obsession will hurt and it will be unhealthy unless you realize that you can get better…”

    “Love trumps everything I’ve been through in my life.”

    “My marriage is great because we work on it every single day.”
