    How To Avoid Being A Dumbass

    How To Avoid Being A Dumbass

    There are plenty of smart people with degrees, knowledge of history, and the ability to explain politics or global economics, yet most of them struggle. Why? Because they have the wrong definition of intelligence. Society typically equates intelligence with high IQ and EQ, but while these attributes are important, they’re incomplete. They don’t encompass the full spectrum of what it means to be truly intelligent, nor do they translate into success or fulfillment. In this episode, I discuss the missing ingredient that transforms intelligence into true visionary power.

    Why You're Not Getting Happier

    Despite advancements in technology, healthcare, and living standards improving the quality of life over the years, one would naturally expect an increase in overall happiness. However, this hasn't been the case for many. People aren't getting happier. This is the modern paradox. In this episode, I explore why happiness isn't increasing and what you can do to change it.

    The Compound Effect

    The Compound Effect

    Many of us wake up every day and say, “today’s the day.” We’re going to lose that extra weight, get that promotion, and finally realize our dreams. And then we wake up the next day and say, “Meh, maybe next week.” But the problem isn’t our goals or ourselves, or even our attitude. The problem is our approach. Why do we think we can just wake up and snap our fingers and change everything? Not only is it unlikely to happen, it’s also potentially dangerous. The Compound Effect offers another path. In this episode, I share my thoughts and insights on ideas and concepts from The Compound Effect by New York Times bestselling author Darren Hardy.

Not for me.

I was so looking forward to this podcast! And I bet there are valuable messages throughout each episode. Unfortunately, I just can’t get past the pleading tone. Begging me to change my mindset is a great way to make me not want to. Petty? Maybe. But I know I can’t possibly be the only one. Not even finishing the first episode, turning it off soon as I’m done with this review. Bummer.

Decent Podcast

The topics on here are good topics. The host appears to be reading his script, however, as opposed to a more conversational or personable style that other podcasters use. He doesn’t really express his opinion and just merely reads his script. Sure, he uses inflection, but it still sounds like someone reading a script or excerpt rather than having a radio personality. Except for when he occasionally interviews someone else. His voice is also an acquired taste. Otherwise, the show topics are great positive topics to feed your mind with positivity.
