    Solving the Ambition/Acceptance Dilemma

    Solving the Ambition/Acceptance Dilemma

    Should you "Go hard" or "Embrace where you're at?"

    Each of these two impulses have a time when they are useful but also negative fallout.-- Going hard gets results, but at the wrong time can lead to burn out. Acceptance can be "healing" but too much leads to mediocrity.

    What if there was a single axiom to determine which path to follow in every moment?

    In this episode I take some lessons from strength training applied to solving this Ambition vs Acceptance paradox.

    How to Alchemize Frustration (Arousal Control Technique)

    How to Alchemize Frustration (Arousal Control Technique)

    I had a moment (few hours) of very ungrounded little b*tchness due to a DMV-like experience. But then I remembered a somatic technique to transform the "wound-up" feeling into something more pleasurable. You can try it next time you're frustrated to calm your mind and relax your body.

    Independent Frames

    Why don't men like being told what to do? Some may call that "fragile masculinity" or some insecure need for dominance. But actually there are real consequences for the man and his relationships if he too frequently takes orders. I share an example of when a buddy and I refused to listen to a good suggestion and why that mattered.

A podcast for helping out of mental anguish.

The Ruwando podcast explores territories few podcasts I am aware of do. No nonsense honest approach to explaining mythology and sub conscious amongst other subjects. Keep up the great work!

Digs Deep

This podcast expands my mind, my thinking, my understanding. The subjects are specific and Ruwan likes to go deep in to them. Personally, I love exploring how our minds work with “living”, this being alive stuff, both individually, so that I can better understand myself, and interpersonally, so I can see more clearly what drives our collective behavior. Ruwan is a not so old wiseman with a fearless curiosity to explore.

Awesome listen

Ruwan gets into the spiritual side of sex. He shows you new points of view and deeper meaning. Great listen on the morning commute
