Amazing man ! Where can I learn more about your story ? I had a knee injury too (not as bad as yours), years ago and it still kind of hurt. I suspect that there is some psychological issue behind it !

Hi there,

Thank you for posting your video and sharing your story. What you said very much resonated with me. I had a similar experience with burnout at work. I am a big “believer” in treatments that heal the roots of diseases as opposed to the symptoms. Two of my favorite self-healing method is TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and Tam Healing (created by Tom Tam). Meditation has helped me tremendously as well! Do you also have a favorite self-healing method?

Ok, nice, Lisa May! Traveling is certainly one of my favorite things in the world. In fact, my journey of personal development really began as a result of three life-changing trips. I can tell you all about them later. But awesome – keep traveling and publishing 🙂

Hi Lisa-May,

Thanks for sharing your passion and your insights about traveling! I myself love traveling as well but haven’t had the chance to do much of it lately except for going back to my home country (France) every few years. I don’t know if you’d be willing to share how traveling around the world impacted you the most as far as your world view is concerned?

Hello Paddy. It’s nice to know you have pretty much the same interests and passion as myself. I’ve had to deal with some serious health challenges in the past and overcame them without drugs or surgery. In fact, my journey of self-development began with a personal injury. Anyway, never heard of bulletproof program – wonder what that’s about. And awesome to connect with you.

Hi Ian – surfing certainly sounds cool (I’ve only done it once on a beginner’s course in Biarritz France and enjoyed it). If you didn’t have to worry about time, money, resources or anything else would you surf all the time if so, where? Did you turn surfing into your career or vocation – or are you planning on doing this?

Hey Ian, great passion and I really feel you! My number one sport is snowboarding, but surfing is definitely up there too. I’ve been doing it for 4 years.
Where abouts in Japan do you live? How’s the surf there? What would you compare it to in the world?
Btw, Japan is more than amazing for snowboarding too, you should try that if you haven’t yet 🙂

Hey Neil, good stuff, man. It took me many years to figure out what I should be doing, Andy I’m still in the process, too. Looking back, it was the pain that has been the greatest teacher, and when I could overcome it, that gave me clues to my passion. In my case – self-healing and overcoming all kinds of health problems. Also, getting out of difficult situations, in general. Thanks to sharing, man.

Hi Neil,

Thanks for sharing your video about your passion. First time you’ve recorded yourself? It didn’t show!
From what you said, it seems you’re still looking for your passion or it has been a long process for you to find it. Is Personal Development your passion or the method you’ve used to find your passion or both?
Personal development or self-actualization is my passion as well! It has been a long but fascinating and exciting journey for me…a journey that never really ends. 🙂
Hope you can get more sleep!

riskthings

Hi Adam. Nice video, well articulated. I found your comment on the difference between loving what you do and having a passion interesting (and made me think). In the past 2-3 years have been struggling with that. It’s one thing to be professional, do excellent work each day (we are what we repeatedly do as Aristotle once said), but I have also found that if you continue on a professional path, it starts to feel empty without a larger purpose (been a management consultant for 12-13 years). Just sharing my own experience.

Here is my first video for Create & Connect, Week 1 – I joined the London Real Academy because I believe Virtual Reality is going to change the world. As a full time 3D artist, I intend to do everything I can to be a part of that. Also – for some reason I can’t get the video embed code to work so here is a link instead. My apologies for the jump to YouTube.

Hi Charlene, I’m the kind of people who is afraid of virtual reality. Maybe it is more about ignorance. I think our society is already virtual, and people are too disconnect from each other. I would prefer re-create real and honest communication and physical contact rather than virtual reality. But my eyes are not yours and I’ m curious to see more. Nice to have you here.

Hi Ady, it’s courageous to start again ! I did that 8 years ago about Taekwondo and my mind and body were not in the same planet 🙂 I thought I could do a high kick, but my body said no ! 2 years ago, I stopped. I moved too far from the club. But last year, I began bodyweight fitness on my own. Each workout is a challenge, to find motivation and not to be disturb by my environnement. But keeping his body fit is essential. You do well ! Keep going.

Hi Martin, what kind of coffee machine you’re talking? I’m really interested in coffee. In Milan a friend once showed me a strange old coffee machine with a wooden bar to press (?) the coffee. Is it something wooden-made-old-style? Many people would buy it just to show it in their house!.

ady_mcclure
Member

That sounds like a great project to get stuck into. Coffee machines are big business and of the time at the moment as is retro and as you have the brand that’s even better. There is also an appetite for German made, I’m sure there are plenty of challenges to deal with but that’s what makes it valuable right? Be interested to watch this as it evolves.

The project about the coffe machine is very interesting. Sometimes, I’m thinking or dreaming of buying an old factory and trying to revive an ancient craft. Maybe one day !
So keep going and go as far as you can.
I’ve got a question : how do you manage these three activities ? Your actual job, the coffee project and the last one.
By the way, can you describe this technology ? I don’t what is about. Thanks?

Wow, that’s blown me away, I use various hosting services and it never occurred to me what the potential value was to someone else. Coming more from the engineering side I’d have thought the greatest risk in 3rd party hosting is securing the servers you are running not access to the console. Thanks for the video, that’s changed my outlook completely. I hope it works out and you get your money back.

Hey brother! Your kitchen is way cooler than mine. Looks like a restaurant or coffee shop behind you! 🙂 Yes Food is one of the great pleasures in life isn’t it? Curious to hear where you go with this. I’m working on getting a solid gluten free diet design for my family as well as totally GMO free. I tend to be more light on the meats and heavier on the fruits, nuts and veggies. Any advice on the gluten free stuff boss? Thanks for the video my man!

I really like the fact that you connect so many things around us with food and I completely agree with the fact that it connects people and brings them together.

Hey Fernando, sounds like you have the right set of skills to do something along the lines of a tech review channel. If I can make a suggestion, if you haven’t already try producing 1 video of anything you already have access to so see how much you enjoy it or see if you have any hangups. I know I personally find a lot more clarity when I can get out of my head and get even in to the first few hours of a project.

Good day everyone, I am excited to be meeting all of you here in the Academy. This week’s video about conscious parenting, something that I am passionately practicising moment-to-moment each and every single day.

Another interesting passion. With a 9 month old I am very interested in your topic. I recommend to you a Documentary I just watch called The Beginnings of Life.

Good morning from me Kingkunta, thank you for your comment. My daughter just turned one. I did catch ‘The Beginnings of Life’ just a couple months before, very interesting documentary indeed. One of the more memorable take-aways was a father consciously realising how much his children crave for his love and affection, to the extent that they are willing to tolerate and overlook his toxic behaviours. How very true. I stumbled upon Dr Shefali Tsabury’s work when my daughter was around 6 months. Her research and work reveal a thought-provoking and global approach towards parenting. Growing up, people within my… Read more »

Thank you Jessie, beautiful. I am a mum , too. My son is 11 and my daughter is 8 and they are absolutely diff characters. It is so amazing to see them grow and change.

Good morning from me Anna, thank you for sharing. It is certainly amazing to watch them grow and change; everything happens at such a rapid speed! My daughter just turned 1; everyday and every moment shows increasing importance for me to be present and recognise her authentic self. Parents are the windows to the world to their children during their early years, so it makes sense for us to check on our intention as to why we think and behave the way we do. I believe in setting the example for her; if I would like her to show interest… Read more »

Hey Jessie! Thanks for this! My son is two years old, and my wife and I have been practicing alternative parenting concepts since the day he was born. I really love the idea of conscious parenting in the context you spoke about – its sometimes challenging not to revert to parenting in the way I was parented, and the notion of witnessing the “why” of my reactions to my son, I feel, is a very potent practice. What helps for me to remember is that my son is simply a bundle of raw emotions – all he really knows and… Read more »

Good morning from me Kevin, thank you for sharing your wonderful insights. Your thoughts on your son being a bundle of raw emotions and basically mirroring parental behaviour – I agree wholeheartedly. Recently, I was wondering about my one-year-old daughter waving her index finger when she was making her point; it hit me that I do the same to her! It does not feel nice to have a finger waved at in my face, I felt bad for displaying that behaviour! From then on, I consciously remind myself to keep my hand gestures neutral and respectful, such as palm up… Read more »

Hello Mandy, thank you for sharing your thoughts. Your website shows an interesting selection of artists successful within their respective fields; the constant stream of delving into humanity and personal empowerment is strong and inspiring I find myself increasingly drawn towards the concepts of energy and intention over the years, how transforming energy within would reflect in a life transformation; I am still a student in many aspects. Yoga is certainly something I would like to practice and would be really interested to learn from you from your experiences in its practices. Thanks again for sharing!

Hi Mandy, I love that you place a high value on people, authenticity, and vibration. It seems like your passion video and website are very congruent where I can see aspects of the sites design or the content being posted reflecting what you’re passionate about. I think that kind of congruence can be difficult to achieve so it’s cool that it’s noticeable between the video and site.

Hi Mandy, vibrations and frequencies – very interesting. I just started to dig deeper in the whole spiritual world and I am getting passioned about that. Just now I am in my 4th week of the Wim Hof Method (check it out, if you don´t know it yet) and experienced that me as a person is not powerful enough to get trough the challenges (for example: 10 Min cold shower every day this week).

Hey there Mandy, thanks for sharing, short and concise video. I have not long just came back from South America, where I stayed at a healing retreat in the Peruvian Amazon with a Shaman and his family. I did 3 ceremonies in 7 days, but ever since I have dived much deeper into the thought vibration concept, and cosmic energy. I don’t doubt that you are familiar with Bob Proctor, he has a number of books on thoughts frequency and the laws of the universe ~ Namaste

This is cool stuff Louise and I’d love to geek out on it with you some time. I approached a similar topic recently reading how infant brain hardwires language sounds.

Louise Carrier

I think I would like to geek out with you on it too as I’m very interested in such things also 🙂 It is incredible how our brains are set up! I can remember when I first read about neuroplasticity… just amazing 🙂 If you know a little French, Italian, Spanish or another romance language that would really help if learning a little Latin is of interest? 🙂 Would love to hear what you learned about the infant brain and language? 🙂

Nice, Louise! Love the thoughtfulness behind your passion! And it’s so true, that idea – that when someone is passionate about something, you know, they glow and it makes me interested in whatever it is too.. It’s so cool to see you talk about what you’re interested in – keep at it! When you said about being self-employed I was just cheering you on and def think it’s possible if you pursue what you’re passionate about – so cool to see the energy that comes forth. Nice to meet you here!

Hi Mandy 🙂 Thank you! It’s very nice to meet you too 🙂 I agree as although it’s not without it’s challenges the feeling comes with it’s own momentum and that as you say sustains you and keeps you going through the challenges you meet along the way 🙂

Hello Louise, this is such an interesting subject, thank you for sharing! Trained as a lawyer, the meaning of words are the bread and butter of the trade, but I never looked at the subject with the glow that you exuded from just that short video. I could feel your enthusiasm and passion from your delivery and would love to hear your further thoughts on this subject!

What’s up Realers? The passion I’m highlighting here is travel. To travel is synonymous with growth and learning for me; which are both major in my personal hierarchy of needs and IMO should be for everyone.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BfKjPcXoWY4
Travelling is more than physical concept for me. However, even speaking on the physical definition alone I can 100% testify to the benefits. I spent many years not travelling often (even within the UK where I live) and the difference in my wellbeing and outlook on life since I started to travel frequently is immeasurable. Try it!

Louise Carrier

Love this Aaron and how you widened the definition. I too agree with you that growth and learning are so important – both really excite me! I’ve not travelled as much as I would like and will take your inspiration to find more opportunities to do so 🙂 Thank you 🙂

Aaron Campbell
Member

Louise I’m going to take Kingkunta’s idea and challenge you to pick a place, mark it on the calendar, then make it happen. I find any old excuse haha but it’s always useful if you can combine it with visiting someone or work in some capacity….

This subject hits me right at the heart Aaron, I agree wholeheartedly with you that travel is essentially growth. I spent many years dedicated to travelling (both alone and with people) around the world and each time I learn about a new place, culture and group, I discover a bit more about myself. And the effects on overall wellbeing is immeasurable, as you have rightly pointed out. The soul feels re-charged. Since the birth of my daughter last year, we are getting slowly back into the swing of travelling because it is something that I wish to instil in her… Read more »

Peace Aaron, I share the same sentiments when it comes to travel, apart from being a great way to live, but to grow emotionally, socially, plus it enriches you, which you can’t put a price on. I recently got back from South America for 3 months, exploring, volunteering in places like Peru, Bolivia, Chile. If your planning on going to South America…just reach out, I’d be glad to offer you some tips….Peace

Hey Rob! Cool vid and love your thoughts. I hear you about a wake up call. I just was listening to Gary Vaynerchuk and he said something about how he’s motivated to do things for others.. like he’ll take action if he’s accountable to someone else.. I’m realizing the power of that for myself.. another woman mentioned how in her culture they dress nicely and show up looking/acting their best out of respect for those you encounter.. I thought that was such a cool way of looking at it and am realizing that that’s an effective way (and true way)… Read more »

The new new thing is career. I’ve made millions. I’ve lost millions. Repeat. I decided on my criteria though. To do something worth my time, I will mostly enjoy, with people I mostly enjoy. Need all three. I hedged with the word ‘mostl’y since all projects have some elements of suck and people are nuanced including myself. I’m frustrated that the new career choice hasn’t revealed itself. I’m working on a few concepts. LR may help me see the light. My minor new-new things are – 1) Just signed up for a 250 adventure run in Cambodia in 4 months… Read more »

Hi Robert 🙂 I agree wholeheartedly with your criteria but also with your hedging with the word mostly! People are really important to me too 🙂 Yes I’m sure it will help with that 🙂 It’s been a terrific place to get feedback and has greatly assisted me over the last year. I’ve also found the process of making videos really useful as it’s helped me to get to know myself better and understand where I want to go and likewise where I don’t! 🙂 Wow!

Hi Miroslav,

I know mediation is all the rage but you seem to achieve it by your sport. This is great.

You also mentioned you enjoy teaching English. Is it that you enjoy instructing others? Is it that you enjoy providing value? Is it you love the English language? All areas for you to explore.

You didn’t mention any specific goals so I’m reflecting what I gleamed from you’re video discussing your passions.

Cheers,
Robert

Miroslav Miguel Jindra

Hi Robert, thanks for you response. I actually do think of futsal as my form of meditation and I’m grateful that I’ve found something like that, something that comes naturally and gives me a lot of joy. As for teaching, I wouldn’t say I enjoy instructing others, rather leading, inspiring or motivating. I do like providing value, specifically sharing my knowledge or experience with others to help them grow. And the third one, love for English, is actually probably the most important part of why I enjoyed teaching it. I mentioned my goal, organizing a football language camp for kids,… Read more »

Hi Miguel, congratulation for your video! It’s very interesting the process of teaching because it forces you to put your thought il the other mind to try to communicate as well as possible!

Hey buddy, self improvement is also important for me, it’s a kind of life philosophy or mindset, even though I wouldn’t call it a passion in my case. I don’t really have any experience with that, but publicly stating your goals seem very useful to me, and I guess it’s one of the main ideas here. And as for the goal-setting, I have been thinking recently about why it is so difficult to meet your goals and create/keep good habits and I came to a conclusion that it really comes down to motivation. If your desire to reach a goal… Read more »

Agree completely. I am finding the method of writing down my goals each morning, how I am going to reach those goals and then writing a To-Do list under that is a very powerful activity. Starting with the goal, it is always in your mind before you start your work day. Writing how you are going to reach that goal allows you to flesh out and think of the road you have to take. So there is some pretty good strategic work there that almost no-one else does and I have got it done with a 15 minute sit down… Read more »

Hi Kenlee, You seem to have much knowledge in diverse areas. Remember that the ability to connect seemingly unrelated genres in new ways is kinda a superpower. You can find ideas and values in the inbetweens. Great for strategic thinkers. The challege though it where to pick your spots. You’re stated passion is self-improvement. Being here and forking over some of that hard earned AUD shows commitment. I just finished a very cool audio book that has some new perspectives on SI. It’s called “The Art of Not Giving a Fuck”, by Micheal Madson (I think). Check it out. Rob

Dude where is that mountain? I see them and I want to go. (Forgive my digression, I traded the Sierra Nevadas for the streets of Bangkok).

Flow states. Precense. Dedicated time. Exercise. You’re hitting the right notes.

Where it gets hard is continuity. Life wacks us at times with challenges that take us away from these worthy pursuits.

Quick question – what’s your single best go-to tool for getting to flow when you’re under the gun with no tasty mountains to your back?

Kevin Sureya
Member

? Hey Kingkunta You nailed it, that continuity is kind of the the goal-less goal, right!? because we’re human and it’s impossible to maintain that state for too long. For me it exists on a spectrum. I believe that if I make a concerted effort to actively cultivate or create the conditions for Presence to spontaneously (or intentionally) emerge then I’m somewhere on the spectrum of that experience all the time, like getting a constant slow-drip of eternity and the occasional infusion of bliss. Of course, I’m here on LRA because I haven’t nearly perfected the process … When I… Read more »

Goal-less goal. Thinking about that statement. Ice Hockey analogies come to mind but none work.

Recently Ive been using an app called Flowstates. It comes from http://www.themostdangerouswritingapp.com. Great results putting me into work flowstates. Basically you set a timer and must type for that duration. If you pause for GT 5 seconds everything gets deleted.

Hi Kevin, good video and good place, even I don’t know where is it. I’m very interesting about a topic of breathing!

Moving conversation really makes sense to me. You can even move it to another level and have a jogging conversation. And that way you even put more pressure on your breathing and probably get more out of the run.

I think your idea opens provides some new ways to connect. “Walk with me”, “Lets go explore for 5 minutes”. Etc, Could be great openers – offering a more personal connection. With known aquantances i could offer ways to mix it up “Let’s cruise around a bit while we discuss xxxx” “I need a stroll buddy. Let’s go” What do you say? Curious how the conversation changes while moving surrounded by distractions vs locked face-to-face discussions. Do people go deeper? Lighter” Are they more willing to make certain types of conversation” Does it get more personal? Is it more suitable… Read more »

Miroslav Miguel Jindra

Absolutely, this step to leave the comfort zone is what we need. And when you look back at it you can see that it actually didn’t hurt and that your anxiety or fear were not real, that it was probably just the unknown that you feared. I believe that if we force ourselves to step out of the comfort zone more often, it will make us understand what we are capable of and it’s going to be easier each time.

David Nienhaus

Actually you are right. It didn´t hurt at all;)
Thank you for listening!

Aaron Campbell

Well done David! Stepping out of your comfort zone will most definitely work for you. It will open up new chambers in your self and through repetition will set new norms in your life that in turn will give you confidence to elevate to higher levels you most likely never thought were accessible.

Public speaking is one of the biggest fears to anybody. You are young and will have time and opportunity to overcome it!
The very exercise of uploading a video is a step forward. One of the members started to like it so much that he began to post all his comments and replies in the LRA under the video format. Maybe, it is an exercise that could benefit you greatly:)

Paul Cleaver

Hi Anika,
When I’ve taught people presentation skills in the past I always start with the concept of Earning the Right to Speak. Ask yourself two simple questions: am I prepared (do I know my content and have I rehearsed)? Two: do I have something of value to say that the audience should want to hear? If the answers are Yes, then you have created affirmations to repeat and remind yourself that you deserve to be on the stage/in front of the group.

Good video it felt authentic, I really liked how you weren’t purely self-motivated and wanted to talk to leccies that were struggling. Might be worth setting a number of electricians that are ahead of you in the business as well. Also, you might find it helpful to make sure you do one electrics related project per (insert time period) to purely based on passion and enjoyment, build yourself something? Any thoughts? Thanks for the video.

Great passion but a little general in nature. Is there a particular area in which you feel equiped to help others? Are there experiences in your past that you can draw on? Do you have a plan to move forward? Thanks for sharing.

Nathalie Bisschop
Member

Hi Dan,
Thanks for commenting. I kept it rather general on purpose. I’m now focussing my energy on working on my own perceptions of live so that I can help others. I haven’t quite decided yet if I’m going to specialize on any particular area. I’ve got a bachelors degree in psychology so that’s already a good foundation. Up coming goals are getting my drivers licence and a certificate to be self employed. Thanks again Dan

Sunny Bal

That’s awesome! I feel the same about helping others, sometimes no greater satisfaction. Sometimes, we find that we can so easily help others achieve success and solve their problems but we can’t do the same for ourselves! If you have this same problem, try and think of yourself as a business/client. If you were not you, what would you tell Nathalie to do, step by step, to achieve her goals. I guess that’s what this academy is for too, so we can help each other and get that support. Thanks for sharing 🙂

Aaron Campbell

That’s a great passion. I understand completely there’s a fantastic sense of satisfaction in helping somebody get to where they want to go that can’t really be described. It’s just special.

I think this goes to the heart of some of the problems in the education systems worldwide today, from my point of view there is far too much emphasis put on wrote learning and how much information you can regurgitate in exams rather than skills development through the means of demonstrating that you suggest. Good job!

Dan Becker

Thanks Ray! All the really good stuff I learned has been through demonstration. I learned some stuff in a traditional lecture setting but not a lot.

Pete

Hi Dan! I can relate to your experience – I previously coached coaches in a gym environment and I took great pride and satisfaction in getting coaches to a high standard of professionalism. How is the experience of demonstrating in real estate going for you? Is it a direction you want to progress in?

Dan Becker

I have a guy who I work with every Tuesday that I really enjoy. I also had an opportunity to post a couple ideas in the week two area for a guy who is getting going. I am looking for ways to do more. I am not sure how this passion fits into the goals right now but I expect for clarity to emerge. Thanks for you kind comments.

Hi Dan, Interesting idea. I like how you get more specific than just teacher, especially as I’ve spent the past 20 years as an educator at different levels and in different subjects. Demonstrating is a particularly effective technique, especially for things that are overlly technical or for people for which English is not their first language. I think you would also like the concept of “scaffolding” which is a fancier way of saying breaking things down into smaller steps in the learning process. It sounds simple enough but the challenge is deciding what the steps should be/how to introduce/how long… Read more »

So… here comes another thing I’m passionate about. I’m sorry, after the early bird week I’m just about to fall asleep as I’m talking. 😀

Maybe Zentangle is something for you as well. It’s a great way to silence your mind… And believe me – everybody can do it. The outcome doesn’t matter. It’s about the process itself (for me).

I liked the very clear example that you showed in the video. I got a clear idea of what you were talking about which was helpful. In terms of improvement, you might consider moving the benefit the drawer obtains closer to the beginning. I think you said “Make your mind shut up.” Perhaps start the video with a statement like “A great way to clear your mind is to…” Hope it helps.

The most important trade I ever learned. Like in many cases some of the 1st things you became good at became a passoion of yours. As sales did for me when I was really young. Going door to door trying to raise money so I would be able to afford some new boots for boxing. I never forgot the importance. In any business today no sales no business to go too. https://youtu.be/pUIdiizoOiw

Nathalie Bisschop

Hij John,
So if I understand it correctly your passion is selling door to door. That honestly is a passion I haven’t come in contact with. Is it the actual contact that you like or do you have to use different strategies and that’s more your thing? And are you now still in the sales buisiness?

John Tipaldos

Sorry for the delayed response Nathalie. I love the interaction whether door to door or on the phone. Think of it like this before the internet you had to meet people face to face and pick up body language facial expressions things like that. to day when I’m interacting with someone it’s difficult for me to have a conversation…I see the people struggling socially. Strategies play a big part you cant use the same tone demeanor with all customers. Not all of course. Every business is a sales business today.

Hi again Pete!
I wish that your passion could benefit me into identifying what could be mine;)
That way we could both live our passions!!!

Pete

Hi Kris – Lets get started now! – When I was a kid my Dad didn’t really communicate with me – that’s impacted my life because I had to become really good at communicating with others to understand them better. That ‘life experience’ is a deep driver for my life and what I hold as valuable. When you look back now, what skills or talents have YOU developed to get what you need out of life?

Kris Matt
Member

Hi Pete- I had somehow of a similar background to yours.My parents were always absent physicaly or emotionnaly. I was also unrooted from one place and bounced to another and then eventually to a new country and…language. So, I believe that a sense of communication came out of it as well. I am able to describe an event or a personal experience with some humor or a colorful flavor. However, I fall often short when there comes a need to make a situation work to my advantage or a third party to take my side in a conflict I also… Read more »

Pete

Kris – sounds like you have a wide range of possibilities and interests! I think the only way is to keep trying different jobs and roles until you get a sense of what fits best with you. Your willingness to take risks (I think) is crucial to you creating a passion that makes sense to you.

Dan Becker

Pete

Dan thank you for your thoughts and questions! What excites me Dan is when I get ‘connected’ to someone and I’m totally in the zone with them – when I get curious and discover how somebody creates their experience of life – then I reflect back to them this information and make subtle suggestions that set off that ‘light bulb’ moment in them- and this process ultimately leads to them changing their life for the better!

Hi John, what an interesting passion! Ancient history and myths are of interest to me too, and Sumerian culture must be fascinating as one of the earliest advanced civilizations. Have you read anything by Graham Hancock on ‘alternative’ views of ancient history? He does have some outlandish ideas, but I do find them fascinating, even if they are hard to verify.

That’s very exciting about the screenplay – good luck!

Reinout John Philips
Member

Hi John, very interesting. Are you also interested in how mythology might relate to the human psyche? If you are, have you read the work of Carl Gustav Jung? He was Swiss psychiatrist and in my mind a great thinker and visionary. His autobiography completely changed my view of religion and mythology. I believe that you will find it fascinating. Looking forward to hear more about your endeavors. Rein

Mythology..I cant recall the last time someone mentioning that. Being Greek myself I will hear a story or 2 from my parents. Really cool. In fact I’ll find one to read with my kids.

Ben Turnbull

Hi John, Mythology is a really interesting passion, something which I’m totally ignorant about but would like to learn more, can you recommend any beginners guides, or any particular culture of mythology which you think are particularly interesting to look into first?

John Baker
Member

Ben, you may want to look into Hesiod’s Theogyny (“Birth of the Gracious Gods”), which is an epic poem about the origin and relationship between the Olympian Gods, the Titans, monsters and other assorted otherworldly beings. A personal favorite of mine is “Inanna: Queen of Heaven and Earth” by Diane Wolkstein and Samuel Noah Kramer, which gives accounts of the titular Sumerian Goddess; her adventures, her battle of wits with her grandfather, and her stormy courtship with the shepherd Dumuzi. This is the book that informs the writing of my (copyrighted!) screenplay.

John,
Your passion came through in the video and I appreciated knowing why you were passionate about mythology. Also enjoyed understanding the connection to your father and that you are acting on the passion with the screenplay.

Hey Nicolas, thanks for your comments – I encountered those criticisms from friends and family all the time when transitioning to raw food!

One thing I did notice at this point was that it took much less food to make me full which was definitely a bonus for a while!

Wilko Schroth

Pete, I found your video interesting too. At the moment I prefer a quiet step by step approach towards passion. When I was a little younger the louder kind of passion thing had for me the risk of forgetting anything else in my life – so I paid a kind of prize for it. The calmer way fits my personal way/ journey better I guess. So – good luck for you.

Pete
Member

So true for me also, but please don’t get me wrong though – I really enjoy ‘feeling’ passionate because it just feels good inside my body – but perhaps like you, I don’t rely on that. I think the quiet intuitive voice is more helpful at this stage of my life

Congrats on 5th anniversary of not causing suffering to non-human animals 🙂 There’s no need for all the cruelty right?

Could please tell me how did you feel when you went fully raw and the reasons for incorporating cooked food back into your diet?

Hi Pawel,

I felt really good these 2 Years of being Raw Vegan. Since I was a Kid I always loved Fruit and raw Vegetables in abundance, so It was not hard for Me to make that choice.
After these two 2 Years I simply wanted my freedom back on eating some Foods that are not considered ‘fully raw’ like Potatos, or some steamed veggies and just be more open minded again. My diet still consists of mainly Fruits and Veg but I just completely allow myself to have the choice. 🙂

well done you. I eat a lot less meat now, I do enjoy a steak though or roast but I probably only eat meat once a week or 3 times max.
I have gone off chicken big time though after watching a few videos

Hey Cat have you seen the film “Sacred Science”

Hey JT, this theme is super important, because it can take so much time for someone to always check in detail what kind of stuff our food is made of. And of course our body, our whole organism, is made of the food we eat. If you could provide this informations to a broader audience or just to your family and friends you can make the world a little bit better and healthier!

Hi JT, thanks for sharing. I also think its important to get a better understanding of the source of our food, and the connection. Completely agreed on labeling too and such a great point, moving from something you are against to something you are for. Great video.

Have you ever thought about learning coding? Creating and developing apps!
I feel that those are encompassing beautifully the systems you mention in the video.
Is it your 2nd cycle?
Care to share your impressions of the first one. Before/after… were you able to extract some value?

Dani Bonilla Irulegui
Member

Yeah, definitely! I learned coding a while ago and then studied computer science at university. I really enjoy coding. But I truly though I was missing some parts in it. Like going outside and capture things, execution out of the screen… hehe but I think is a great skill for anyone. Now is one of my strongest tools when I need a solution to something. Have you also learned to code? Also yeah it’s my second cycle here! If I’m honest with you, this is a really good exercise to be doing. Last cycle I mentioned that my passion where… Read more »

So what you thought to be a passion for stories evolved into something else.
What type of systems are you having in mind. How did this evolution take place.
Since, you already went through the first cycle, I assume that you had to build some decisions and actions around your passion of the stories. May I ask you what you did and what change do you feel it brought to you, if any?

Dani Bonilla Irulegui
Member

My passion still stories but just by the fact of introspection due to discover week made me think that I’m also passionate in something even bigger than stories but systems. It was by looking through my memories and remembering what made me tick.
It helped me to understand myself better and therefore be more open to different type of things that I might really enjoy hehe. For example, now I’m also into a mini-optimization system that I’m truly liking.
Hope that helped 😉

Hi Peter. I could see the difference between working out outdoors and indoors. You described very vividly both scenarios. I relate with you when you say you prefer to exercise outdoors. I have paid gym subscriptions and I do not enjoy going there. I suppose that it has to do with growing up in a city with 30 C (86F)daily. Anyway, keep up the great descriptions and finding the intersection of all your interests!

Peter Prestley
Member

Thanks, Calibella! I’m finding the act of producing videos really helps me to articulate my ideas. Hope you’re having the same great experience.

I really need to get out in nature a lot more, at the moment its like living in a box

Peter Prestley

Yeah, I’ve been there at times too. Hope you make it out!

Tom Crate

Hi Peter, I couldn’t agree more with you! I think we miss out on so much nourishment when we train in a high tech gym as opposed to getting outside and moving in nature. I recently did a workshop with a guy called Rafe Kelley. I don’t know if you’re aware of him but he has an excellent philosophy of self development through moving in nature: http://www.evolvemoveplay.com/
I think you are on a very important and noble path. I look forward to following your progress.

Peter Prestley

Cool, thanks for the link Tom! I signed up for that guy’s newsletter and it certainly seems like we would by sympatico. Thanks for the encouragement and inspiration!

Sigurður (Siggi) Ólafsson
Member

Peter – could not agree more with you. Getting outside to move is superior to the gym all day long. Moving in terrain the is different and you really have to pay attention to where you are stepping also forces you to apply your body in different way then on the “tired” gym treadmill. I’m lucky that next to my home I have a plenty of mountains where I can go hiking or running and I find that being outside and in alternating terrain has a much better effect on my body than the gym machine’s.

Take care

Yehh, we could not live further apart.I had to look up Saipan on the map (can see that it quite close to Guam). I’ll definitely visit these islands someday.

Hi Peter, I can definitely relate with what you said and couldn’t agree more. I’ve change my way to commute from Bus to cycling and i can feel the difference. Before, during my bus commute i was looking at my smartphone and listening to music, completely closed down. Now that i’m cycling, I feel the fresh air, breath a lot and my heart is racing. My mind is then focused on the road and all those real feelings. It keeps me present in the same way meditation does. I love it ! I’ve also been running in minimal shoes but… Read more »

Cool, Nicolas! I was an obsessive biker for years while training for triathlons. I stopped about a year ago because it was getting to be too much training. You’re inspiring me to at least start biking to work again. Cheers

Hi Peter, thanks for sharing. Being outdoors, and fully present, creating a integrated experience that benefits the mind and body, was a great reminder for me to get back out there. Thanks, great video.

Hey Mathew! I share your passion for podcasts man, what a fantastic resource! I had a similar experience discovering the Joe Rogan podcast for the first time. It really blew my mind wide open to a whole bunch of amazing stuff and ultimately set me up on a new path in life. My question to you is, will you be making your own podcast anytime soon?

Matthew Newton
Member
Matthew Newton

Tom that’s a great question! I did do a podcast in University and loved in. I was doing a journalist masters and just yapped on about football for about 20 mins and loved it. It was for an assignment though.

I need to scratch around for a topic. What about you?

Tom Crate
Member

Based on how comfortable and engaging you are in your introduction here I think you’d make a great podcast host!
I love the idea of finding people who inspire me and asking them questions for an hour or so. I feel like I would have a lot of lot of work to do to build my communication skills and develop charisma. It doesn’t come naturally to me to speak in public. Maybe that’s a good reason to try it though, learn by doing and all that 🙂

Matthew Newton
Member
Matthew Newton

Cheers mate, I appreciate the words. It’s always a process. Never that comfortable speaking in public either but I normally just throw myself into situations to try and get over those initial barriers and get experience. I had to read at a wedding a few weeks back and I did great, appeared very normal but the heart was pounding while I did it. You just have to take it on. Even that video took me about 4 mins of walking before I started recording, then you just say fuck it. Once you start it flows then. What are your interests… Read more »

Tom Crate

I think you’re absolutely right about just jumping in and ignoring the fear. I’m learning, I think doing these videos for the LRA is really helping actually. I’ve started recording a little video blog every day to help me get more comfortable speaking. If I was going to do a podcast I think it would be a bit like London Real or Joe Rogan with guests from all different disciplines and backgrounds. I love to hear new angles and perspectives on life. Maybe I would start by interviewing people I know about what they are most passionate about and the… Read more »

Nice work, that’s really good going on the daily recording. Keep it up. I have not done enough yet, the LRA has me thinking and I’m keeping up the meditation and cold showers, so that’s good, but I still have not done my 3 things from last week. And it’s poor on my part because it’s what I have had an issue with in the past. I have not followed passions because of the fear, and It’s what I’m thinking about so much at the moment. So stick at it, and I’ll get there. That’s what I’m here for and… Read more »

Tom Crate

Thanks for your words Mathew, I will keep pushing forward. Allowing fear to prevent action is a problem we share in common. I think though, that if we stay focused on the passion and keep making small steps we will eventually succeed. Let’s get to it! 😀

Wow. Talking about vulnerability…you nailed it. Thanks for this inspiring video. I think that the “taking action” part contributes to the real change we make. I am working on this to really find my passion and work towards my personal goals (not anybody else’s). I believe living an authentic live takes some courage and awareness. And you seem to have both.

Chen that was f*ckin* awesome! BOOM! ha ha 🙂 – Your video took me completely by surprise in a great way… If I may ask, what was the one thing (if there was/is) that made you realise that you weren’t living authentically before?

Tom Crate
Member

Hey Chen! Thank you for sharing your story. You’ve really inspired me! I’ll definitely check out that book. I have also held myself back from a lot of things in life through a lack of self esteem. I think it takes a lot of courage and character, first to see the things in your life that are not serving you and second to leave them behind and reach for something better. I salute you on your journey and hope to follow in your footsteps.

I am also struggling with defining my passion; the very reason I joined the 4 week cycle.
But I feel that you seem to have identified yours. Maybe you just needed a lil’ support in that direction or just to authorize yourself to acknowledge it outloud:)

Eva McKervey Flanagan

Kris, I’m going to take this path and see if this is what I’m truly passionate about and what doors may open 🙂

Kris Matt

That makes you already set and ready for week 2; DESIGN;)

Eva McKervey Flanagan

Kris, I was short on my response back to you, was typing & my client had walked in.
I think the questions Brian had asked me had made a light bulb go off, because now I’m paying more attention to what I’m doing.
He asked me, what kind of magazines do I read, when I search on Internet, what do you find yourself researching/looking at, because that will give you a start on where your passion is. What do you find yourself interested in as far as magazines/books, what do you find yourself researching/searching Internet, what do you find yourself talking about?

Kris Matt
Member

Eva,I couldn’t enter the call session:(
But like many, the self growth aspect in all its shapes and forms… LR being initially a show that echoed with that as well. But it is too wide of a field…right now, mainly health, but I am sick:(
So it starts with interests…it could go to so many places.
I hope that you keep me updated about your next steps. I would be interested to know how things are evolving:)

Nice goal Eva – gotta make it a S.M.A.R.T. one tho! Well at least that’s what Brian is going to tell you when he sees this 😉
Was great talking to you and everyone else last night – can’t belive we stayed on for over three hours^^ but when you are having a good time, time flies I guess…

P.S. I have had many (nick-)names in my life but Matt is certainly something new to add to the list 😉

Hi Jason,

I’m challenging myself to read a bit more too. I just ordered Crucial Conversations, it will be here tomorrow. I will work with you to read 25 pages each day. If you want to start today, I will catch up. Let’s do this!

Hi Jason, I too have been pushing myself to read more this year, if it helps – I struggle to find good blocks of time to do any decent reading so I’ve set aside 10 minutes every morning to read right after I finish meditating – I keep the book next to my meditating chair ready to read, although slow – I’m slowly getting through books.
