Despite the pressure and criticism he faced, Adesanya chose to gamble at the highest level and put immense stakes on himself, believing that the satisfaction and rush of overcoming doubts and proving his critics wrong would be worth it.

    • The Importance of Empathy and Understanding in an Age of PolarizationIn a world of extreme views and divisive opinions, it is crucial to listen to and respect differing perspectives, keeping in mind that people are shaped by their experiences.

      People these days tend to be divided into extreme views and struggle to consider differing perspectives. There is a lack of willingness to listen to anything outside of one's own opinion, leading to a refusal to engage with ideas from the other side. This polarization can be seen in various areas, including politics and the response to COVID-19. People are quick to judge and label others based on their beliefs, creating division and animosity.

    • The Importance of Setting and Respecting Personal BoundariesEstablishing personal boundaries is essential for mental and emotional well-being. Saying no without explanation helps maintain control and self-respect, while respecting others' boundaries is crucial for healthy interactions.

      Setting and respecting personal boundaries is crucial for maintaining one's mental and emotional well-being. Israel Adesanya discusses how he used to struggle with people-pleasing and allowing others to take advantage of him. He shares that he has learned to say no without explaining himself, as explaining can lead to losing the power over one's boundaries. Adesanya also emphasizes the importance of respecting others' boundaries, as he appreciates when fans approach him respectfully and understands that sometimes people may not realize their etiquette when interacting with celebrities. Ultimately, recognizing and enforcing personal boundaries is essential for maintaining self-respect and avoiding resentment or regret.

    • The Power of Imagination and Hard Work in Achieving Extraordinary OutcomesCombining imagination, hard work, and self-actualization can lead to manifesting goals and experiencing extraordinary outcomes, emphasizing the importance of having a vision and putting in the necessary work.

      The power of imagination and manifesting goals is incredibly powerful. Israel Adesanya explains that everything we have today was once just an idea in someone's mind that they brought to life through imagination. He emphasizes that the mind is a force that many people still do not fully understand, but he has personally experienced its power in manifesting things both in his personal life and in his career. However, he also highlights the importance of combining imagination with hard work. He uses the analogy of setting a destination on a satnav but also needing to drive to reach that destination. Steven Bartlett adds that self-actualization and finding meaning are privileges that many immigrants from Nigeria, like Israel, have been blessed with. Additionally, they discuss how people in developed nations sometimes create unnecessary problems due to lack of real struggles. Ultimately, the key takeaway is that having a vision, manifesting it, and putting in the work can lead to extraordinary experiences and outcomes.

    • The Power of Expectations and the Impact on HappinessOur happiness is determined by the alignment of our expectations with reality. Managing our expectations and appreciating what we have can lead to a happier and more fulfilled life.

      Our happiness or unhappiness is deeply tied to our expectations. Steven Bartlett explains that when our expectations of how life should be go unmet, we experience unhappiness. He gives the example of a billionaire who becomes furious when his steak is not perfectly cooked because his expectation was for it to be perfect. On the other hand, in places like Botswana, even getting a bowl of rice can bring happiness because the expectation was not to eat at all. Israel Adesanya adds that people's problems are relative to their expectations of life. Additionally, it is understood that certain personal aspects of one's life, like relationships and family, are private and should be guarded. People appreciate and respect boundaries in this regard.

    Moment 171: STOP DOING THIS! It's Ruining Your Sex Life

    Moment 171: STOP DOING THIS! It's Ruining Your Sex Life
    In this moment, world-renowned philosopher and thinker Alain De Botton discusses how communication can lead to a better sex life. Alain says sex is like a mirror to the relationship as a whole. If something is wrong with a couples sex life, it’s usually a symptom of a wider problem. He says that a first step towards a more fulfilling sex life is reflecting on how you are as a partner. Being open about yourself in a relationship is the best way to create mutual trust, which means that you can ‘tease’ out any issue in a relationship. This then leads to being open with one another sexually.

    Moment 170: The Scientific Method For Unstoppable Confidence: Professor Steve Peters

    Moment 170: The Scientific Method For Unstoppable Confidence: Professor Steve Peters
    In this moment, elite sport psychologist, Professor Steve Peters discusses the way to overcome low self-esteem. Often low self-esteem manifests itself outwardly in abusive relationships, the wrong career, and impulsive behaviours. Dr Peters says these are ‘maladaptive coping strategies’, where you are punishing yourself, thinking that you don’t deserve to treat yourself well, as you believe that you fundamentally don’t deserve happiness. Dr Peters says the solution can be as simple as getting a blank piece of paper and writing down who you want to be, and what behaviours you want to have. He says that this exercise works, as once you remove the interference of your mind, this person you hope to become is actually you, as you are defining yourself.

    Moment 169: CIA Spy Reveals How To AVOID Media Manipulation & Brainwashing: Andrew Bustamante

    Moment 169: CIA Spy Reveals How To AVOID Media Manipulation & Brainwashing: Andrew Bustamante
    In this moment, the former CIA intelligence officer Andrew Bustamante discusses the crucial techniques of manipulation, which he describes as a core part of CIA training. Andrew  introduces the R.I.C.E. analogy, which stands for Reward, Ideology, Coercion, and Ego. This framework is essential for understanding the motivations of others, allowing you to connect with them, build relationships, and influence their actions. According to Andrew, reward involves anything the other person desires, while ideology reflects the person’s core beliefs and is the most powerful element of the acronym. Coercion involves using negative behaviours on someone such as guilt or blackmail, and ego relates to how the other person sees themselves. Andrew translates this manipulation technique to marketing. He suggests that by sending targeted messages to your audience and assessing their responses, you gain insights into their ideology, providing you with useful information for future sales.

In this moment, world-renowned human performance expert, Kristen Holmes gives a simple break down of this rhythm and its massive impacts. Kirsten says that the circadian rhythm is basically physical, mental and behavioral changes that happen over a 24 hour cycle. All of these changes are controlled by a master clock in your brain regulating every cell in your body through chemical signals. Disrupting this rhythm can cause massive health consequence such as cancer, metabolic and cardiovascular disease, as well as mental health issues.

    MDOT 49.5 with Collin Strajack (Host)

    With episode 50 delayed due to audio issues, I decided an episode still needed to be dropped. New episodes drop every Monday, and I wasn't gonna just not upload a new episode for the week. So, what did I do? I hooked up the mic and started talking directly to you the best I could. Hopefully something resonates with you or someone you possibly share this with. Also, I want to note that you will hear my furnace in the background randomly throughout the episode. It's cold here in Iowa. I touched on a lot in just shy of 50 minutes including depression, recovery, suicide rates, imposter syndrome, and more. I apologize for the delay on episode 50, but I will make it worth the wait next Monday!
