People are great at proving themselves right. This often leads to rationalized behavior, which makes overcoming resistance a serious challenge. In this mini-hustle, I talk about how to take your awareness upstream and make the prover-mind work in your favor.

Four-time NYT bestselling author Gretchen Rubin joins me to discuss how she began her writing career, what makes a person happy, and her new book, The Four Tendencies.

You can take the free quiz we talk about during the show if you’d like to identify your Tendency (Upholder, Questioner, Obliger, or Rebel). I took it and it turns out I am an UPHOLDER! It made perfect sense after I read the detailed report.

People often constrict themselves with the labels they use to identify who they are. In this guided meditation, I share a way to look beyond your self-description and allow your "I" to thrive.

The music that accompanies this meditation is the track "Opening Eye" from my collection, Binaural Beats for Meditation.

The ethical decision whether to eat meat or not in modern society is complex if you have your thinking hat on. In this mini-hustle, I answer a listener question about my trip to vegetarianism and back.

I was a strict vegetarian for seven years, and I got back on the meat eating train about four years ago.  Recently, I've been thinking about the issue and feeling resistant to eating meat. In this episode, I chew on (ha ha) factory farming, human biology, the food cycle in the natural world, food commerce, and why self-imposed dietary labels are tricky.

I recently released an episode called Meditation AMA Part 1 in which I answered listener questions about meditation. The episode had a healthy response and everyone wanted more. So, here is Part 2 where I address the following:

• Can I meditate less since I’ve started feeling the benefits in my daily life?

• How do you get yourself in the mindset to meditate?

• When and where should I meditate?

This episode comes with an important bonus question. It was submitted as a meditation question, but ended up being much larger and turning into its own mini-hustle. The question was:

• How do we make decisions based on the cultural representation of normal?

This is something every self-aware human critter struggles with. I had a great time unpacking it and feel that I gave a valuable take on it.

Does letting go mean that we should become passive in our lives? Does it simply mean that we should relax our bodies so that we are not clenched? I think it means more than that, and I tackle the topic on this mini-hustle.
