    My Birthday Episode: 12 Lessons I've Learned in the Last 12 Months & Ways You Can Apply Them Into Your Life

    enSeptember 08, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • The Power of Choosing the Right ConnectionsSurrounding ourselves with the right people can positively impact our personal and professional lives, leading to growth, success, and happiness. It is important to be mindful of who we have in our lives and ensure genuine connections.

      Being conscious about the people we surround ourselves with is crucial in both our personal and professional lives. Jay Shetty emphasizes the importance of being aware of our connections and being mindful of who we choose to have in our lives. He uses the analogy of a glass of water to explain that we often try to overgive or overpromise emotionally, only to end up under delivering. Jay also highlights the significance of having a supportive team that believes in our purpose and values. By being present and aware, we can energetically determine whether we have a genuine connection with someone or not. Ultimately, choosing the right people to keep in our lives can greatly contribute to our growth, success, and overall happiness.

    • Trust Your Intuition and Surround Yourself with Positive InfluencesIt is essential to listen to our instincts and prioritize our well-being by choosing healthy relationships and focusing on self-care. Quality matters more than quantity in our interactions and connections.

      We should trust our intuition and pay attention to the energy and frequency of the people we surround ourselves with. Often, we ignore this ability and instead focus on facts and data. It's important to connect with those who lift us up and bring out the best in us. Additionally, just because we have a history with someone doesn't mean we should force a future with them. Nostalgia and attachments can hold us back from new and natural relationships. We should be conscious of who we want to become and surround ourselves with like-minded individuals who align with our goals. Taking care of our body and mind is crucial, as we can only give our best when we prioritize self-care and ensure that we are in a good state physically and mentally. We should not overextend ourselves and end up under-delivering, but rather focus on quality over quantity in our interactions and relationships.

    • The Importance of Self-Care and Helping OthersTaking care of oneself through meditation, exercise, diet, and sleep can have a positive effect on overall well-being and increase one's capacity to help others. Asking for help and being emotionally supported are signs of strength and can deepen relationships.

      Taking care of oneself is integral to being able to care for others. Jay Shetty emphasizes the interconnectedness of self-care and helping others, rather than seeing them as opposing forces. He highlights the importance of focusing on four key aspects: meditation, exercise, diet, and sleep (meds). Starting with improving sleep can have a positive ripple effect on other areas of life, such as diet and exercise. Additionally, Jay Shetty shares how his own experience on tour reinforced the significance of self-care in increasing one's capacity and potential. Finally, he addresses the importance of asking for help and being emotionally supported by others, challenging the notion that it is a sign of weakness, and instead highlighting the strength in vulnerability and deepening relationships.

    • Breaking Down Walls and Building Deeper ConnectionsOpening up and being vulnerable allows for deeper connections and support, while staying humble and grateful reminds us of the guidance and support that helped us achieve success.

      Opening up and allowing others to check in on us can lead to deeper connections and support. Jay Shetty emphasizes the importance of breaking down walls and being honest about our struggles and emotions. By doing so, we create space for friends and loved ones to reach out and show concern. It's essential to let go of the notion of having a perfect life and instead allow ourselves to be vulnerable. Additionally, Shetty highlights the significance of staying humble and connected to our initial motivations. Rather than getting caught up in our own hype, we should receive love and compliments with gratitude, attributing our achievements to the guidance and support of our teachers and mentors.

    • Staying grounded in humility and gratitude amidst criticism and negativity.Value yourself based on your humanity, seek honest feedback from deep relationships, and maintain love and compassion towards others regardless of external opinions.

      It is important to avoid buying into one's own hype and remain grounded in humility. Jay Shetty emphasizes the significance of gratitude and valuing oneself based on humanity rather than external factors. He also highlights the inevitability of facing criticism and negativity, regardless of good intentions. In response, he suggests investing in deep relationships with those who truly know and understand us, seeking their honest feedback as a means of growth. Additionally, as one's influence and popularity grow, there will be a greater divide between those who understand and appreciate us and those who don't. Ultimately, it is essential to separate oneself from external opinions and maintain love and compassion towards others, even those who harbor ill will.

    • Embracing Challenges: A Path to Growth and SuccessFocus on developing skills and strengths, immerse yourself in learning, and overcome challenges to unlock new levels of growth and success. Don't neglect your younger self's needs and desires.

      Every level of life comes with its own set of problems. It is unrealistic to expect a problem-free life, no matter how much money, fame, or success one achieves. Instead of focusing on avoiding problems, it is more effective to focus on developing new skills, strengths, and ideologies. By immersing oneself in learning and seeking resources related to the specific challenges one faces, it becomes possible to overcome those problems. However, it's important to recognize that overcoming one problem will unlock a new level with its own challenges. Rather than being defeated by this, one should approach it with a skills-oriented and strength-focused mindset. Additionally, as we grow older, it is important not to neglect the needs and desires of our younger selves, as they remain important and should not be deemed insignificant.

    • Embracing our younger selves and pursuing our dreamsIt is important to honor our younger selves by pursuing the interests and dreams we had when we were younger, even if they seem insignificant to our older selves. We can make a positive impact at any level of mastery.

      It is important to honor and embrace our younger selves and the interests and dreams we had when we were younger. Our older, more evolved selves often dismiss or discourage these desires, considering them insignificant or irresponsible. However, denying our younger selves the experiences they yearned for can lead to bitterness and a sense of disconnectedness. We should give ourselves permission to pursue the things that honor our younger selves, even if they seem insignificant to our older selves. It is not necessary to be perfect or have all the answers in order to help others and make a positive impact in the world. We can always offer something valuable at our own level of mastery.

    • Everyone has something valuable to offer and can make a positive impact by being open, sharing knowledge, and embracing new experiences.Regardless of our level of expertise, we can all contribute to the growth of others and create meaningful connections by being open, sharing our knowledge, embracing new experiences, and serving others with our unique gifts and skills.

      Everyone, regardless of their level of experience or expertise, has something valuable to offer and can make a positive impact in the lives of others. It is not necessary to be a finished product or have everything figured out in order to help and contribute to the growth of others. By being open to learning, connecting with people, and sharing our knowledge and experiences, we can create meaningful connections and make a difference in the world. Additionally, it is important to embrace the idea of making new memories instead of dwelling on past ones. By exploring new places, meeting new people, and being open to new experiences, we can keep ourselves young, fresh, and create lasting memories. Lastly, serving others with our unique gifts and skills not only brings more meaning to our lives, but it also opens doors to unexpected opportunities and allows us to make memories that will last a lifetime.

    Do You Compare Yourself or Your Relationship to Others? 5 Surprising Ways to Stop Letting Comparison Steal Your Happiness

    Do you compare your relationship to others?

    How can you identify and manage your triggers for comparison?

    Today, Jay introduces the concept of social comparison theory, explaining the differences between upward - where we compare ourselves to those we perceive as better off, can lead to feelings of inadequacy if done with envy rather than a mindset of learning, and downward comparisons which involves comparing ourselves to those worse off, which can provide a temporary boost in self-esteem but is ultimately unproductive and unkind.

    He shares practical strategies for reducing comparison, such as being mindful of social media usage, identifying personal triggers, and investing in self-improvement. Jay also stresses the importance of understanding the deeper, often hidden aspects of people's lives and why we usually compare our internal struggles with others' external successes, leading to a distorted and unfair self-assessment.

    In the episode, you'll learn:

    How to identify your goals

    How to set mutual goals

    How to be mindful of your triggers

    How to invest in self-improvement

    By seeking deeper connections and understanding the full context of others' lives, we can develop more empathy and reduce the impulse to compare and shift our focus from external comparisons to internal growth and relational strength, ultimately leading to a more fulfilling and authentic life.

    How to Know if You've Been Lying to Yourself & Learn to Get Comfortable Being Honest With Yourself and Others with Charlamange Tha God

    Why is it challenging to acknowledge when you're lying to yourself?

    How can one maintain a habit of honesty in daily life?

    Today, let's welcome The Breakfast Club co-host Charlamagne tha God. He is a prominent media personality and New York Times bestselling author, best known for his candid approach to celebrity interviews and his advocacy for mental health. His latest book, "Get Honest or Die Lying," challenges readers to forego the superficial and engage in meaningful, transformative dialogue.

    Charlamagne shares his insights on the societal detriments of small talk and why  superficial conversations are not only a waste of time but also a significant barrier to meaningful human connection and understanding. He argues that the small, meaningless exchanges that fill our daily interactions should be replaced with deeper, more substantial dialogues that challenge, enlighten, and engage us on multiple levels.

    With Jay, Charlamagne explores the psychological and social impacts of engaging in—or avoiding—small talk. He illustrates his points with personal anecdotes and experiences, including his own struggles and breakthroughs in striving for more genuine interactions in both his personal life and professional endeavors. He stresses the importance of being present in conversations, listening actively, and expressing one’s true thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment.

    In this interview, you'll learn:

    How to initiate deeper discussions

    How to be honest in conversations

    How to set personal boundaries

    How to reflect on personal growth

    How to encourage others to engage

    This episode not only challenges listeners to evaluate the quality of their own conversations but also inspires them to make every word count in the quest for deeper understanding and genuine relationships.

    With Love and Gratitude,

    Jay Shetty

    What if the answer isn’t to do more? What if the answer is to want less?

    I’ve always believed that subtracting from your life can produce better results than trying to add something. Generally, quitting a bad habit, or a bad mindset, or anything distracting, will have a bigger impact on your life than learning more.

    This episode covers a few things I think we should stop doing to live a better life. Enjoy.
