Most of us run on an endless string of vague goals and should-haves, with true, empowering change always just out of reach. Many of us feel stuck in our day-to-day routine, without the proper tools to break the mold and live our best lives every single day.
 
David Nurse, a renowned life optimization coach of more than 150 NBA players and CEOs, knows it doesn't have to be that way. His key is to make mindful mindset pivots that allow you to shift your perspective by incremental yet powerful degrees, which is what we discuss in this episode.
 
But, we also dive into a deep conversation on Christianity. What is God? Is there a Heaven and a Hell? What about Adam and Eve? David and I have two opposing viewpoints and challenging each other brings about an interesting conversation.
 
What we discuss: 
 
08:55 - What is an NBA Optimization Coach?
11:30 - The Enneagram Personality Test.

Why are you the way that you are? Were you born this way or have you conditioned yourself to be this way? Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D is here to answer this pressing question.
 
Dr. Lipton is a stem cell biologist, author of The Biology of Belief, and an internationally recognized leader in bridging science and spirit.

Our food is getting cheaper and cheaper, but at what cost? Not only are our current farming and food processing practices and systems deteriorating our health, but it's causing even more harm to our ecosystem.

The question at play in this episode is how can we create food for ourselves in such a way that actually restores the health and vitality of the soil of which we are producing our food?

In this episode, I am joined by Anya Fernald who has the asnwer. She is the founder and CEO of Belcampo Inc., a family of companies that encompasses Belcampo farms where they humanely raise organic meat (which I believe produces the highest quality meat I have ever come across in my life). Belcampo focuses exclusively on regenerative farming practices, which means it restores the land it uses rather than deteriorate it.

Anya is a brilliant woman and I was in complete awe throughout the entire interview learning from her about our food, where it comes from, and the impact it has on our environment.

What we discuss:

How we have “perfected” nature 5:00

The interconnectedness of nature (How we solve one problem but create another): 13:00 

The different roles of animals: 18:30

How animal digestive systems work and how it’s integral to our ecosystem: 21:30

Is regenerative farming scalable?: 41:00

The shift in mentally that needs to happen in the value we place on meat in our diet: 47:00

Anya’s tips for what our first steps should be 53:00

We are a species that–whether we want to face it or not–is on it’s way to becoming extinct and this earth will carry on with or without us. So the great question Michael and I explore in this conversation is how can we pull ourselves back from all the noise so that we are able to hear the signal? Michael believes the answer to this question is shifting the way we live by reverting back to ancient ways, techniques, and worldly views. What does that mean? Download now to find out more.

Michael is a social entrepreneur focused on building movements for social impact. As a Fulbright Scholar, he studied community-building strategies in Sri Lanka, where he lived and researched for two years. As a member of the Board of Directors of Sarvodaya USA Michael worked intimately with Sri Lanka's largest social movement and NGO, Sarvodaya, serving 11 million people across 15,000 villages. Since that time he has traveled and worked to build global movements.

The collective vs. Individual way of living: 6:00
