One of my biggest fears, concerns when my son was growing up was being mistaken for something he was not. My son has autism imagine all things that go wrong for young black men with autism or any other disabilities. Now have that conversation.
This is my favorite episode of School of Greatness – YESSSSSS to you, Lewis, for asking the right questions that we all want to ask – and thank you, Shawn, for your relentless mission to help others. I learned things about science and nutrition that I’d NEVER known. Thank you both!!!!!
Be yourself and never listen to others about what you should do. Others limit your possibilities compared with theirs, that’s why they don’t believe that you can. But you can and you will. Keep going your way where you feel happy. Don’t build high expectations and be patient with the results. If you love what you do then high results will come. If you hate your job then leave it. You’ll never regret it.
Absolutely! Impact made. Trying to change only 1 thing is VERY difficult, but that is what all great thinkers say. Just choose one, to begin with. I’m going to start with meditation because that will help me solve my most immediate goal.
This is one of the reasons I love Lewis interviews… here you meet people you wouldn’t have dreamt of meeting… Jericho is indeed an icon because he represents a lot of people in the world who have been through a lot but do not know how to come out of their shells…am not a fan of guys, but I do respect people’s choices and beliefs.
Thank you, Lewis, I’ve listened to your podcasts daily since … months Lewis, months. I’m addicted in a great way. Jim Kwik is correct I am doing housework at the same time. But I’m learning all the time and benefit from your podcast’s positivity. This is a fab interview, one to return to for sure. Thank you again and my kitchen and bathrooms are spotless.
Such a great video. I have enjoyed it so immensely. Learned so much and even cried at one point. Goggin’s mentioned looking back to realize what he had overcome, and it really hit me. I thought to myself to be proud of what I had overcome. When you are so busy constantly moving forward. It is tough to stop and reflect, see things you might not want to face, It’s so important to know your worth. Thank you all for this.
I was in foster care and got to see my mom on the weekends as well. It’s so inspirational to see a successful person that was in the same situation. Between being in foster care and my foster mom nurturing me, I know it made me a better more resilient human being.
Lewis, you really are one of the best things that happened to the Internet. Your energy, your caring, and your true compassion are so obvious to me. As an empath, it’s easy to see that you’re such a genuine soul. Thank you for showing up on the planet.
This is a great interview. I love the question, what would you create if you knew it was going to fail miserably even if it was something that you really loved creating? There is really so much freedom in that thought.
These interviews always pull me out of some of the darkest places. Exactly what I needed to get back to writing my book. Keep doing what you do! Both of you are so inspiring.
Self-sabotage tends to linger in our lives because of a lack of self-esteem, self-worth, self-confidence, and self-belief. Moreover, we suffer from self-sabotage patterns because we have great difficulty managing our daily emotional experiences.
Matthew.. you have such insight. I am not a fan as such, but I do greatly appreciate your work. I truly respect a man that can embrace both his Masculine and Feminine nature. Actually, this goes to both of these wonderful men. Thank you, you are both old souls.
I’m the living human experiment of what Dr. Fung is saying. I always ate healthily and was fit. Two years ago I was diagnosed with cancer. When I spoke to my oncologist about the diet I was told they weren’t researching that. I wasn’t satisfied with the answer and have adopted a fasting lifestyle, eating organic, and focusing on wellbeing. I feel great and am cancer-free! This is truly the future of health. Thank you, Lewis and Dr. Fung. I will make reference to this video often.
The information here is what we need to educate people about. It sucks that we cannot trust all the information out there and need to do the self-education for us. But the bright side is that knowledge will always make us better, more enlightened, more aware of issues. Appreciate it, Lewis.
I used to turn off this “forbidden” side of me because I thought it was so unrighteous but when I think about the times I had my greatest successes it was when I was feeling my darkest. At times I had to even create an enemy in my mind when I didn’t have one to pull this energy from. This is one of the best interviews I’ve ever watched.
There is a hormone called leptin (I think). It exists in our “fat cells”. Once the fat cells get filled to a certain point, leptin is released. Leptin tells us that we’re full.
People who have lots of fat have developed lots of fat cells, more than people who are thin and who also have never had lots of fat. The fat cells never die, even after losing all the body fat.
Once someone who once had lots of fat loses all that fat, it takes more food to fill up the fat cells to release that leptin to tell us we’re full, because there are so many of them.
So, eating can be a delicate balance for people who have lost fat. It takes more than waiting for that fullness feeling from the leptin.
When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.
