How To Add 10+ to Your Life

So I recently listened to one of my fave podcasts “Exponential thinking”. http://podcast.diamandis.com Hosts Dan and Peter  talk about how all of us have a “number” in our head that we (un)consciously think we’ll die at.  I’m paraphrasing the process Dan Sullivan uses to unlock 10+ extra years: First: ask yourself “What age do you think you’re going to die? “ Answer for yourself. Let’s say the answer is … Continue reading How To Add 10+ to Your Life

How to Use Your Mind to Become Superhuman

Yesterday, I watched a documentary on “the Iceman”, this strange/fascinating 50 year old Dutch man who defies what we think we know about physiology.  The man, Wim Hof, holds 20 Guiness records and has defied science by being able to be submerge for almost 2 hours in ice, WITHOUT change to his body temperature.
