69. Scared to Life: Embracing Your Inner Fears with Scott Simon


Scott Simon was a meek and timid and fearful child. His withdrawn personality led to him being bullied and finding himself isolated and lonely. Though his loving family only had the best intentions, they perpetuated his behavior instead of pushing him to grow and overcome his anxieties.While at college, Scott stumbled upon the quote, “Do one thing a day that scares you,” and thanks to having found his people, he started to push himself a little bit each day. He graduated with a newfound spark for life and decided that, from then on, he would live life only ever saying “yes” to the opportunities presented to him, no matter how scary they were. This led him to become a “happiness entrepreneur,” building businesses designed to improve the lives of everyone around them. He founded Scare Your Soul, the USA’s first happiness incubator with a mission to inspire the world to grow into their best selves through the ignition of fear. Overcoming what scares us takes courage and courage is a wonderful quality to cultivate.Thanks to Scare Your Soul, Scott has done everything from marrying couples to running parades to giving a TEDx talk and he continues to spread his message through all the means he can – his latest of which is appearing on Gravity.In this episode, we discuss the power of music and the importance of finding our people. And, of course, the main focus is on our fears, how we can decipher between the ones that exist for a reason and the ones that are only going to hold us back, and how we can use being scared as fuel to drive ourselves to become better people, every single day.What Brett asks:[00:02:50] Let’s start at the beginning. Tell me about your childhood.[00:06:20] Were you naturally shy and withdrawn or was it something you learned?[00:14:40] What was high school like, being so scared of interacting with others?[00:19:40] Tell me about the role of music in your life.[00:24:00] Mentorship and the arts are two very large parts of your life. How do you think they combine and work together?[00:28:50] What did you do after leaving high school?[00:31:30] What was it like to finally find your people?[00:36:30] How did you go from being scared to embracing the fear of the unknown?[00:44:28] You mentioned the philosophy that you never really graduated. Tell me more about that.[00:50:18] Your bio refers to you as a real estate developer, a happiness entrepreneur, and the founder of Scare Your Soul. Tell me more about these three things.[00:57:40] How are things unfolding for you, now?[01:04:01] Any final thoughts?To learn more about intentional living, and for the complete show notes, visit: gravityproject.comResources:Scare Your SoulScare Your Soul on FacebookScare Your Soul on InstagramScott’s TEDx Talk: “Happy by Design”Gravity is a production of Crate Media.

Ep 99 | Professor Scott Simon: Taiwan's Indigenous Peoples and Their Connection to Ecology

Talking Taiwan

A note from Talking Taiwan host Felicia Lin: Earlier this year, I spoke with Professor Scott Simon about his research on Taiwan’s indigenous peoples. He is a Professor in the School of Sociological and Anthropological Studies and Co-holder of the Research Chair in Taiwan Studies at the University of Ottawa. He’s done research in Taiwan since 1996, spent an accumulated 10 years of residence in the country, and published 3 books about Taiwan. We talked about Taiwan as the cradle of Austronesian peoples and culture, and what the designation of a group of people as “indigenous” means from an international law perspective. What’s interesting to me is how Professor Simon’s work invites us to think of Taiwan as a Pacific island nation rather than a renegade province of China. Here’s a little preview of what we talked about in this podcast episode: How Professor Simon got interested in the indigenous peoples of Taiwan How there were a lot of changes pertaining to the indigenous peoples of Taiwan around 1996 The indigenous people that Professor Simon met while in Taiwan What brought Professor Simon to Taiwan initially in 1996 How Professor Simon had initially planned to obtain his PhD in China but ended up doing it in Taiwan How Professor Simon's research on Taiwan’s indigenous peoples and economic development led him to study the ecology and environment, and the study of Austronesian peoples The connection between the Bhatani Islands of the Philippines and Taiwan The similarity between the CHamoru language (of the people of Guam) with the Truku language of the Taiwanese indigenous people and Tao language spoken in Taiwan’s Orchid Island Looking at Taiwan as a Pacific island nation and not just as connected to China Taiwan’s connection to Guam, Marieta Islands, Carolina Islands, Maori of New Zealand and Easter Island Book recommendations for people wanting to learn more about Taiwan’s indigenous peoples The difference between categorizing a group of people as indigenous vs. an ethnic minority The three nations in Asia that recognize indigenous peoples The political implications that come with a group of people being declared indigenous Related Links: Professor Scott Simon’s author page on The Center for International  Policy Studies of the University of Ottawa website: https://www.cips-cepi.ca/author/scott-simon/ Undoing Fieldwork in a Time of Epidemic by Scott Simon: https://cascacultureblog.wordpress.com/2020/04/20/undoing-fieldwork-in-a-time-of-epidemic/ Professor Scott Simon’s books: Tanners of Taiwan: Life Strategies and National Culture: https://books.google.com/books/about/Tanners_of_Taiwan.html?id=ostwAAAAMAAJ Sweet and Sour: Life-Worlds of Taipei Women Entrepreneurs: https://books.google.com/books/about/Sweet_and_Sour.html?id=gFyqAuPTAgkC
