33. Finding cloud nine happiness FT Jordan Gross, happiness coach, 3x founder, 2x book writer, and entrepreneur

An episode of Applying Awareness Podcast

By Adam French
In the Applying Awareness podcast, I delve into the causes and effects that shape our internal state as well as the state of society, then apply that knowledge or awareness of the causes and effects to drive positive action. I do this by dive into the realms of psychology, nutrition, agriculture, spirituality, politics, entrepreneurship, industry, and more. My main goal in starting this podcast was to capture my learning journey across many realms and to go a step further to turn awareness into actionable steps to create positive change within one's self and society.

Connecting with your spirituality is giving you access to power and energy that you didn't have before hand.

We cover some awesome ground: -Getting started on your unique spiritual path. - How persistence comes from the soul. - Why our soul history can teach us about lessons we need to apply to the present.

33. Finding cloud nine happiness FT Jordan Gross, happiness coach, 3x founder, 2x book writer, and entrepreneur
In this Episode, I chat with Jordan Gross about how to integrate a cloud nine moment into your day. Jordan is a Northwestern and Kellogg School of Management graduate, a writer, a leadership coach, a speaker, and a self-proclaimed multipotentialite, having experienced positions in large banks like Merrill Lynch to small startup companies like Chowbus. He's also a best-selling author of a book called Getting COMFY: Your Morning Guide to Daily Happiness, a TEDx Speaker, and founder of multiple companies and organizations. We discussed ways to create a morning routing that kicks happiness into high gear through calming, openness, movement, funny, and YOU. We discuss taking control of your life and how to understand if something is just passion or your true life purpose. This episode was an incredible window inside the mind of an individual who's life's purpose it is to cultivate happiness within himself and everyone who he comes across. We also discuss external motivations vs internal motivations. External motivations are ones that are shaped by forces around you, and internal motivations are ones that are cultivated through you chasing your purpose. Jordan and I talk about how to structure your life around internal motivations in order to facilitate greater happiness and life satisfaction. Internal motivations relate to the things you can actually control, and how you can use your unique skills to improve your happiness and life prospects.

31. Deep dive into cognitive bias
Bias. As human beings, we all experience this phenomenon. If we didn't have these biases, or mental shortcuts, to process the incredible amount of information that we intake through our senses, we'd be overwhelmed with sensation and information and unable to make any decisions. However, these mental shortcuts can have many negative effects when proliferated across a society and imbued into our power structures and societal narratives. For example, confirmation bias and it's tendency to re-enforce opinions when presented with evidence leads to the disagreement that many have around some of the foremost issues of our time.  In this episode, I wanted to give a practical overview of significant biases we all posses and how to control/rise above them to see the world objectively.   I dive into a few types of bias that are very influential in our inner perceptions as well as our society  - Confirmation bias - Self-serving bias - Ingroup bias - Anchoring/First impression bias.  I discuss how these biases work and give illuminating examples of how they could impact a conversation around an important topic. It was a fun episode with many nuggets of information!  More tasty awareness content:  My Website: https://applyingawareness.com Twitter: https://twitter.com/applyawareness Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/appliedawarenesspod Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/applyingawareness/ Medium: https://medium.com/applyingawareness

28. Using fear as a compass towards your fullest potential
 Fear. Most say that this emotion is the opposite of love. It's one of the central causes to racism, hate, war, and dehumanization. But what if I told you that instead, it's the flame that keeps your striving to become greater? It all depends on what you're scared of. Are you scared failure? Or are you scared of not reaching your full potential? In my newest episode, I talk about a few examples of how James Altucher leans into the fear of being comfortable to reach new heights. I give a few key steps to take when confronted with fear: - Confront and accept the fear. Don't run away from it. - After confronting the fear, ask WHY to uncover hidden excuses. - Nullify these excuses by asking yourself what you're missing out on if you let fear stop you. After going through these three steps, you'll most likely realize that your excuses were an illusion, and you're more scared of missing out on opportunity. What are some stories of how you've dealt with fear?

27. Becoming a human 2.0 FT Mark Metry
How do you beat depression, anxiety, insomnia, and chronic inaction? How do you become a Human 2.0? By understanding that every moment is an opportunity to take action to become more aligned with your true self. Mark Metry and I had an invigorating and inspiring conversation about Mark's rough experiences as a child and young adult, and how he singlehandedly turned himself around by using mindfulness meditation, application of research on human potential, and cultivating a full transparent internal dialogue. He's a great example of how traumatic experiences can temper and harden your spirit instead of burning you to ashes. Listening and opening up to the powerful voice in your head that directs you towards positive action. Then take that action. Rinse and repeat. This is the process through which Mark changed his reality of constant pain into the reality where he's the host of a top 100 podcast, the owner of a successful agency, and a figure for inspiration.

26. How to use failure as rocket fuel for your success
You just failed. Now what? How do you react? What are some methods you can use to learn from the experience? In this episode, I'm going to tie together some stories of people who learned from failure to launch themselves to success. I'm going to break down the factors at work, and how we all can use the valuable lessons we get from failure in order to blast off to a whole other level. I'll also discuss my own failure as a co-founder of a startup, and how I try to implement the lessons I see in hindsight in my work now.  What were the actions I took that allowed me to build that template? What are some methods that allowed me to catch things that would otherwise fall through the cracks? 1. Acceptance. I didn't hate myself for failing. I actually was satisfied on what I managed to create in the circumstances. 2. Consistent reflection. Ask why you failed. Then ask why again a few days later. Then again after a few weeks. It takes a little while for some insights to percolate in your brain. Give it time and don't try to dump all at once. 3. Keep the artifacts. I still have all my design files from BuildingBlox. There are hundreds of screens, and a design system that I made from scratch! It serves as a good reminder that while the ultimate goal of building a successful company didn't come to fruition, the process was something to be cherished and kept for future reference. While there's ways to learn from professional failure, learning from personal failure is more important. One of my friends, Jason Lloye has reached self-described rock bottom. He failed in his personal life and failed in loving and caring for himself. Here's a clip of the conversation I've had with him: So what can we learn from Jason? There were a few main things for me. 1. Love yourself through whatever personal speed bumps you hit throughout life. That foundation of self-love sets the tone for continued progress and striving. 2. Be OK with rawness! With nuance undefined life circumstances! Sometimes people think they have control of everything, but that's far from the truth. A plan is good, but flexibility when the plan falls a part is even better. 3. Find what led to your rock bottom. Reminiscing can be very painful, but can lead to exponential growth when put into the context of learning.

24. Bites of Awareness - Productive and Fulfilling Social Media Use
How do you use social media as a tool to spread your message and positivity in stead of a time suck? In this bite of awareness, I discuss some methods I use. The key is to prevent mindless scrolling! - Positive Engagement driven social media use. Use social media to learn new things, meet new people, and reconnect with old friends - Cultivate your bubble mindfully. Every added friend or follow means a certain type of content. Will you learn something new from this content or will it simply reinforce your current worldview - Value Driven Content. Shift your mindset from "how can I benefit from posting?" to "how can others benefit from my posts? - Scheduled social time: I'm always struggling with this - preventing social media from creeping into my productive time. Set aside time to truly engage with the people on your social media so you're not just mindlessly scrolling.   - Recently, I've started to ask myself when I pull out my phone or pop open a tab of social media - Why am I doing this? It really helps me to either be productive on social media or not use it. How do you engage with social media? Do you do any of the things I discussed? What works and what doesn't work?

23. Spiritual flexibility with JoJo Yao, spiritual entrepreneur, explorer, and healthcare industry expert
This new episode will have you thinking out side of your spiritual box. For episode 23, I interviewed JoJo Yao, an impressively intuitive entrepreneur and mentor of many. He discussed how his father drew connections between the seemingly disparate religions of Hinduism and Christianity We discussed the empathy and positive energy that manifests when you come to understand the higher power within ever single individual, regardless of how they look, or even act. Finally, we talk about the power of the mind to plant, cultivate, and let go of seeds that can either boost our state of being or hold us back.

16. The how and why of cultivating self-awareness
In Episode 16, I go over the Whys and Hows of self awareness. Self Awareness is one of those 'soft skills' that drives your personal growth beyond what you could believe. It's the precursor for emotional intelligence, social acuity, and developing productive habits. In this episode, I talk about asking "what" during self-reflection instead of "why". I discuss cognitive biases and how they get in the way of being self-aware. I also discuss metacognition and it's role in cultivating self-awareness. I tried to cover all the bases of self-awareness. How do you keep yourself aware? What are the methods you use? What did I miss? What did you learn? Let me know. I love discussing stuff with you all.

In Episode 10, Community Gardening Kicks Ass, I talk with my father and Salt Lake City community garden mafia don Jim French about how he got started with community gardening, the fascinating and beneficial social dynamics that emerge from the permaculture lifestyle, and how to get started with your community gardens. I talk to him about the fulfillment and joy he’s gained by playing a central part in cultivating 3-4 stellar gardens around the city, and some of the mindset shifts that permaculture and community gardening requires.

6. Knowing Your Food: The Industry
In this episode, I’ll be doing a deep dive into the food industry in America. How did it get to where it is now? What forces shaped the industry? What effects is it having on our society, environment, and economy? All of these questions will be answered. I describe how the post WWII military industry machine absorbed the food production industry. I talk about how policy changes in the 1970’s shifted our system towards producing huge surpluses of crops through mechanization and monocropping, and how subsides enable the reliance the food industry has on fossil fuels to function. I then talk about the hidden costs of our food, and how the industry has made a fortune by exploiting the misaligned incentive structures shaped by market forces. This exploitation has caused a lot of disease, economic backlash from the healthcare sector, and a collective disconnection from our food as a society. I reveal some shocking statistics that illustrate the negative effects of these occurences.

4. Mental Health in Society FT Colton Lish
On this episode, my guest Colton Lish and I discuss mental health in the social context of America. We discuss how the education system and how the focus on learning numbers and stats as opposed to social awareness might be a factor in the 44 million adults with mental health issues. We discuss the very significant links between mental health and gun violence, and how different cultures treat mental illness. We also discuss ways you can help our society be friendlier to people struggling with their mental health. Even though we discuss serious issues, there’s a lot of lighthearted fun in this episode as well, with discussion of Ted Cruz as the posterboy for America’s institutional inability to educate people on how to become adept social beings. It was an insightful and entertaining conversation with a deep thinker and really intelligent person in Colton.
