John R. Miles - The Reverse Aging Effect: How to Stay Young and Healthy  | Brought to you by AppSumo (https://social.appsumo.com/passion) and Gusto  (https://www.gusto.com/passionstruck.)

New research indicates that Ponce de Leon's much-hoped-for Fountain of Youth may be closer to reality than we imagined. And, that, my friends, is no science fiction. However, You don't have to imagine or hope for a mythical fountain of youth that holds the secret of reverse aging. You can decide daily to turn back the clock, slow the aging process, and reset your age.

6 Ways Patience Is an Important Virtue and How You Build It w/John R. Miles  EP 151

6 Ways Patience Is an Important Virtue and How You Build It w/John R. Miles EP 151

John R. Miles - Six Ways Patience Is an Important Virtue and How to Build It. | Brought to you by Masterworks. Go to https://www.masterworks.io/ and use code passion to start.

Today, we live in a fast-paced world where we desire results at the speed of thought. We consume our fast foods, get our groceries and meals delivered to our house, drive our fast cars, and respond to the constant instant messaging, all of which can make us prone to impatience.

Now, it is okay for some things to be done faster. But not for everything. And that is why it is so vital to understand the importance of patience.

What I discuss about the six ways patience is a virtue and how to build it:

Speed has its benefits. But, many people misinterpret that real art comes in the form of understanding when to apply both: speed at a micro-level and patience at a macro one to ultimately accomplish our end goals. I will use the story of the Chinese Bamboo tree to illustrate the benefits of patience and six ways to practice it.

What I discuss with Jesse Gould

Jesse Gould joins me in this episode of the Passion Struck podcast to discuss his mission to help military veterans struggling with mental trauma and spread awareness of the benefits of psychedelic therapies as an alternative treatment to pharmaceuticals. 

For centuries, indigenous healers and Native Americans have used psychedelic plants for therapy and medical treatment. Ayahuasca, for instance, has been used over 5000 years to facilitate personal and collective healing. During ceremonies, healers would often help provide recovery and reconcile the trauma people had experienced. Over the past century, psychedelics were labeled as illicit drugs and prohibited. Jesse's goal is to change that and legalize their use for mental health ailments.

John R. Miles - Why Life Is About The Journey Not The Destination | Brought to you by BABBEL. Save up to 60 % off your subscription when you go to https://babbel.com/PASSIONSTRUCK.

If you discovered this episode of Passion Struck, you are likely on the path of self-discovery and seeking knowledge on how to do it. You are not alone. Often we focus so much on the desired end-state of our goals that we miss the essential part—our journey to achieving your aspirations. I will discuss the impediments along the way to achieving this journey and provide various ways you can stay on track to creating your best life. I do this by using the story of Cheryl Snead, an African American business leader, and philanthropist who understood why life is about the journey not the destination.
