TAP 115 - All You Need, You Already Have

Summary:  In this episode I talk about how typically all our needs are met.  I believe this ties into anxiety in a big way as we're often focused on what we don't have instead of what we do have. Links: Get my End Anxiety Tool Kit here: http://timjpcollins.com/free Please click here to leave a review: http://getpodcast.reviews/id/1031117023 Here is a link to the Leo Babauta article:  http://zenhabits.net/tsukubai/ Here is the link to the Mark Manson article: https://markmanson.net/everything-you-need In this particular episode you will learn: - Things in life will come and go but it's important to believe that things will work out in the end - If you lost everything today and had to start again you'd actually be ok - It's not the people or objects in life that make you happy, only you can do that - We are often looking externally for a solution but it's actually within us - How our needs are met with food, water, people and shelter etc - Why a gratitude practice is so important - Do we really need all the stuff we consume  Here are the rituals from the Leo Babauta article:  Wake up and say a little prayer of thanks for what you have in your life. Keep a one-paragraph gratitude journal every evening. When you meet someone, bow to them (in your mind) out of respect. You might touch your heart or offer them a smile if that helps. When you eat, say a little prayer of thanks to everyone who made your meal possible (farmers, cooks, transporters, their families, etc.). Appreciate every bite if you can. Before you start a new activity (a work task, a workout, a meeting), pause and ask yourself what your intention is for this activity. Is it focused on helping others? When you are done with an activity, show respect for others, your environment and your equipment by respectfully and mindfully cleaning up, instead of rushing to the next activity.

To get my End Anxiety Toolkit please go to http://timjpcollins.com/free Summary: In this episode I speak to Dave Asprey from Bulletproof.  We discuss diet, coffee and controlling your biology to stop anxiety. Dave Asprey, founder of Bulletproof and author of New York Times bestseller The Bulletproof Diet, is a Silicon Valley investor and technology entrepreneur who spent two decades and over $300,000 to hack his own biology. Dave lost 100 pounds without counting calories or excessive exercise, used techniques to upgrade his brain to an IQ over 150, and lowered his biological age while learning to sleep more efficiently in less time. Learning to do these seemingly impossible things transformed him into a better entrepreneur, a better husband, and a better father. Dave is the creator of the widely popular Bulletproof Coffee, host of the #1 health podcast, Bulletproof Radio, and author of the New York Times bestselling book, The Bulletproof Diet.   Through his work Dave provides information, techniques and keys to taking control of and improving your biochemistry, your body and your mind so they work in unison, helping you execute at levels far beyond what you’d expect, without burning out, getting sick, or allowing stress to control your decisions.
