Joe Rogan – The Corporate Trap

This excerpt from the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast explores how seemingly good corporate jobs by normal standards are restricting personal growth in society. Joe explains how corporate culture, work/life imbalance, and materialism contribute to a lack of self expression.

So, get it together, and this is your life now. No natural behavior, everybody’s wearing clothes they don’t want to wear, everybody’s showing up and doing something they don’t want to do and they have no connection to… that’s the problem with our society.

Joe seems to hit on some pretty solid points in this short video. The main point that I find in this is to actively pursue your interests until your passion reveals itself, and then explore that passion until it has given you everything that it can.

It is difficult to remove money as the motivator of our lives. It is difficult to see the potential in our passions, but just remember as Joseph Campbell said, “Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.”



Dying Professor Delivers Powerful Speech

Brick Walls

This is Professor Randy Pausch who’s video I happened upon tonight and wanted to take the time to share it here. Pausch finds that it is not the duration of our life that is the most important; however, it is more important to fill our lives with passion and love.

We beat the reaper by living well, and living fully… For the reaper will come for all of us. The question is, what do we do between the time that we’re born, and the time that he shows up. Because when he shows up, it’s too late to do all the things that you were always, gunna, kinda get around to.

I don’t think you can really go wrong if you follow those words of wisdom. I try to think of it as creating a life that you would happily and willingly live over and over on purpose.

The Concept of Success

There are many different ways to be inspired… by nature, the vastness of the universe, Incredible sudden realizations, and so forth.

Jon Taffer uses his experience and knowledge to motivate others to be successful. his approach is honest, direct, and inspires action.

Jon has owned multiple restaurants, nightclubs, and bars. He’s a legend in the industry and one of six inductees into the Nightclub Hall of Fame. I love the quote that he used throughout the video, but never knew it belonged to Benjamin Franklin.

If you do tomorrow what you did today, you will get tomorrow what you got today.
