Synopsis

An exploration of the failures inherent in the societal constructs of success, intellect and wealth, and a discussion of the SKWealthAcademy expansion of these definitions to include emotional IQ, love, compassion, happiness, physical health and exercise, meditation and mindfulness. To understand the divergent pathways we take in life dependent upon our views of success, intellect and wealth, we discuss the constructs of school v. education, critical thinking, divergent thinking, rebellion against the norm, confirmation bias, cognitive dissonance, the spread of anti-social social media applications, and sound money v. digital money. Finally we discuss, the need to escape and live outside of these pre-engineered societal constructs into which all of us are born if we wish to realize our creative potential to create a world in which love, compassion, and respect for all life, including nature, prevails, and one in which a beautiful life is not a privilege for the 1% but a human right for

    Rebooting and Updating Society’s Definition of Success | the tao of skwealthacademy podcast, episode_026

    29/06/2019 Duration: 32min

    In episode_026, I provide a free sample of one of the two podcasts I release every month to my patron subscribers. In this episode, I discuss how the very definition of the word success has become a highly processed concept that may still be high in calories but low and near completely deficient in mental and psychological nutritional content. The concept of success as defined by nearly everyone in society is not a construct in which the pursuit of success will help bridge understanding among people, build community and a heightened state of cooperation or be of benefit to humanity in general. In order for us to reach our creative potential and to find our life purpose we must completely reconstruct how we perceive the societal construct of "success".

    Drawing Back the Veil on Universal Truth | the tao of skwealthacademy podcast, epi_025

    19/02/2019 Duration: 40min

    In today’s The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Episode_25, I discuss the problems of our global institutional academic system that allow me to have more rational discussions with a young child and well-rounded martial artists than adults with advanced academic degrees. I discuss why children that have not yet been processed through the academic system are much more open minded than adults that have earned Bachelor and Master degrees, and why philosophical elements of the martial arts of being, knowing and doing promote critical thinking to a greater capacity than exists in general society. I also explore why sound money principles are so widely misunderstood today with even self-proclaimed sound money advocates forwarding a lot of misinformation about sound money on social media. I also discuss why basic facts like the color of the sky, the color of a polar bear's fur and the definition of gravity are still widely misunderstood in the modern world and I discuss why the inability of many in society to have dis

    What Question Did a 3-Time NYC Teacher of the Year Winner Say He Was Shocked that Parents Never Asked Him? the tao of skwealthacademy podcast, epi_024

    07/01/2019 Duration: 36min

    In today’s The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Episode_24, I discuss the motivating factors behind my creation of skwealthacademy, its launch timeline, and my hopes to create a global community with the common goal of improving many educational aspects that have been nearly universally stripped from the academic institution and classrooms worldwide today. As well I discuss what question a NY City Teacher of the Year winner said he was shocked to hear asked of him only one time by a parent in his decades of teaching. (Correction: In my podcast I mistakenly stated that this NYC teacher was John Gatto, but it was actually NYC teacher Frank McCourt, the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Angela's Ashes.)

    Are Our Lives Driven by a Preponderance of Irrationality? | the tao of skwealthacademy podcast, epi_023

    25/11/2018 Duration: 42min

    In today’s The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Episode_23, titled, “Are Our Lives Driven By Irrational Thoughts, Irrational Behavior and Irrational Decisions?” I discuss how we are being increasingly driven towards conflict by those in power that have deceived us into accepting feelings and opinions as indisputable facts at alarmingly high rates. Carl Sagan said, “We can judge our progress by the courage of our questions and the depth of our answers , our willingness to embrace what is true rather than what feels good.” What is truly amazing is that he said this back in 1995, and he didn’t even foresee the influence of social media and the consequent mob mentality on our beliefs back then. Had he foreseen the widespread use of facebook, instagram, and twitter upon our beliefs, he may have lost all hope for humanity. In today’s podcast, I discuss how we can self-identify the irrational beliefs that drive us towards conflict, anger, and unhappiness and restore intellect, rationality, critical thought and happin

    Why We Should Support Small Businesses | the tao of skwealthacademy podcast, epi_022

    25/11/2018 Duration: 39min

    In today’s The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Episode_22, titled, “Why We Need to Support Small Businesses,” I discuss the importance of supporting small businesses over corporate giants and international conglomerates not only as it improves our mental, spiritual and physical health, but also as it relates to abiding by a moral code of honor and as it relates to helping support those trying to change the world for the better. Now if small businesses disappear, and we only have Amazon and Apple and Starbucks left to consume from with many consumers already complaining that these businesses do not have their best interest at heart and often exploit their employees as well as consumers, think of how much worse this situation will get when we do not have the option of conducting businesses with small businesses. When most small businesses have been crushed, we will experience worse customer service and more employee exploitation because if big conglomerates are able to successfully eradicate their competition,

    How to Find a Life of Purpose | the tao of skwealthacademy podcast, episode_021

    08/11/2018 Duration: 01h22min

    I’ve often heard people describe the meaning of life as two purposes that reside at the opposite ends of the ideological spectrum. Many people have said that the meaning of life is struggle, including Jordan Peterson, someone with one of the largest followings on YouTube at the current time. I have heard other people state that the meaning of life is to find happiness. In my opinion, the meaning of life is neither of these choices. The meaning of life is to find a life of meaning. This process will involve both periods of happiness and struggle, but the finding a purpose to life brings a greater feeling of serenity to your times of happiness and makes your times of struggle more bearable. In the tao of skwealthacademy podcast, episode_021, I discuss the various ways we can all find purpose in our life. One way to find purpose is to form a deep sense of community with others and then work towards achieving common goals. But to form a community with others that can give one’s life a strong sensse of purpose, on

    The Things the Happiest Societies Would Find Abnormal About Modern Life | the tao of skwealthacademy, episode_020

    01/11/2018 Duration: 01h25min

    In today’s The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Episode_20, titled, “The Things the Happiest Societies Would Find Abnormal About Modern Life,” I discuss why we have migrated away from many of the elements of hunter-gatherer societies that used to bring humanity great levels of sustainable happiness and why many of us have chosen a lifestyle with almost no sense of community and a heightened sense of isolation from our neighbors in overcrowded urban settings. Forgive the opening of the podcast that states this is Episode_018, as that is an error. This is Episode_020. This podcast could also be titled, “How a return to hunter gatherer society rules would solve modern society’s overfed, malnourished, lack of exercise, sleep deprived, low self-esteem, high anxiety and depressed, inequitable wealth, loneliness, and unhappiness problems.” I believe that this is one of the most important podcasts I have produced in the past year, and as such, it is also one of the longest, clocking in at well over an hour long, so gr

    Why Every Parent Should Enroll His or Her Child in Martial Arts | the tao of skwealthacademy podcast, episode_019

    01/11/2018 Duration: 40min

    In today’s the tao of skwealthacademy podcast, episode_019, I revisit a topic that seemed to be immensely popular in the past, The Lessons I Learned From Martial Arts That I Still Use Today. I discuss the myths about martial arts embraced by non martial-artists that, for example, people use martial arts to bully others, which is against the entire creed and ethos of martial arts. Instead I return to the principles that constitute the essence of martial arts – discipline, respect, honor, courage, and humility - and how these principles have helped me cope and conquer periods of struggle throughout my life. Furthermore, I explain my theory about why I believe that very parent with a young child should enroll their child in a marital arts class because of the invaluable life lessons that will be instilled in a child at a young age from martial arts training, including helping to mold an ethical, moral and courageous young adult. I sincerely hope that you enjoy this podcast as much as others have enjoyed my previ

    Russia v. the United States: Facts v. Propaganda | the tao of skwealthacademy podcast, episode_018

    01/11/2018 Duration: 49min

    In today’s the tao of skwealthacademy podcast, episode_018, I discuss why all wars are bankers’ wars and why even the conflict between the US and Russia in Syria is a banker war, as I believe that it is a war ultimately to control the flow of natural gas through Syria, either from Russia to Europe or from the Middle East to Europe. Consequently, episode_018 is titled, “Russia v. the United States: Facts v. Propaganda. If the US successfully ousts the current Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, they can control the flow of energy resources from the Middle East to Europe and dictate that oil and natural gas from the Middle East is sold and bought in US dollars. If Russia succeeds in rebuffing the US attempt to overthrow Assad, then Russia would control the flow of natural gas through Syria and dictate that these resources could be sold in their sovereign ruble currency, which would serve as a huge blow against the continued subjugation of the entire world economy to US dollar supremacy.   Although this reason,

    Fight Club, Updated for 2018 | The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast_Episode17

    24/10/2018 Duration: 40min

    In today’s "the tao of skwealthacademy podcast, episode_17 | Fight Club, Reinterpreted for 2018”, I discuss why the most iconic phrases from the seminal 1999 film, Fight Club, starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton, are still not only relevant nearly two decades later, but even more relevant in 2018 due to how the introduction of the iPhone in 2007 and the subsequent introduction of facebook, twitter, snapchat and instagram in following years have changed the way we interact with one another. I will discuss the iconic quotes below, and the reasons why these quotes possess a heightened sense of relevance in today’s world which has been driven to record levels of anxiety, depression, suicide and mental disorders by virtual worlds of disconnectedness. More importantly, I will discuss in today’s skwealthacademy podcast, solutions to combat smartphone addictions and how we can return to forming a sense of community with those that live in our neighborhoods. Quotes from Fight Club’s Tyler Durden “The things you ow

    Perception Rules Everything Around Us | The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast_Episode16

    24/10/2018 Duration: 33min

    To begin, I apologize for the audio quality of this episode, but I have fixed the audio problem in the next episode. In Episode 16, I discuss how disconnected we have become from reality and how perception has come to rule everything around us. I cover the fascinating topics of the billionaire Malaysian fraudster Jho Low, who allegedly conned everyone from filmmaker Martin Scorcese, Australian model Miranda Kerr , White House officials, Goldman Sachs bankers, and even the Malaysian prime minister by gaining access to Malaysia’s sovereign wealth funds and misappropriating billions of dollars for personal use. Currently Low is suspected to be hiding out in mainland China, whith Chinese officials reluctant to extradite him back to Malaysia because of Low’s close relationships to very high level Chinese officials that could expose the Chinese officials to scandal should Low be extradited back to Malaysia and be forced to testify in court. In any event, many have claimed, including the author of the Jho Low’s bio

    In Episode 15, I discuss whether we are living in a computer simulation, not in a literal sense, but in a metaphorical sense as the virtual worlds of social media infringes more and more upon the lives of teenagers in drawing them away from the real physical world and into life within a virtual world.

    Are We Truly Free? | The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Epi_014

    20/08/2018 Duration: 51min

    In Episode 14, I discuss whether living an entire life within pre-constructed societal constructs that not only constrict our choices in life but also severely limit our creative potential and our ability to manifest our greatest selves in life is truly living life as a free human being.  If you lived in a tiny island nation state that represented the middle of the pack in everything - technology, human rights, economics, resources, and education - and were told that you could roam anywhere you wanted to within a 10km region of the island but never anywhere else and also never leave this nation to explore the other 192 nations on planet earth, would you feel free? Yet, this is a perfect analogy for how most of us lives our lives when we voluntarily choose to constrict our choices in education and in career from age 5-years-old to age 65-years-old.

    Improve Your Life Immediately By Eliminating this One Huge Time and Energy Waster | The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Epi_013

    13/08/2018 Duration: 37min

    Today, in Episode 13 of the Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, I discuss the one massive time and energy waster in which nearly all of us engage on a daily basis. Simply eliminating  or vastly reducing this aspect from our lives is the easiest way to free up time so that we may reach our life potential and maximize our happiness. As odd as this sounds, sustainable happiness in life requires discipline to achieve. The most time and energy wasting task is not only a time waster, but it also stunts our intellectual growth, our creative development, and our sense of community with others, an aspect of life that is essential to avoid depression. So eliminating this one huge time waster not only will increase our productivity, but it will also massively improve our happiness and life while eliminating large portions of anxiety and depression.

    27/07/2018 Duration: 37min

    Today, in Episode 12 of the Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, I discuss the 3 elements necessary to live a fearless, valuable life - community, self-education, and love. I elaborate on why those in power economically and politically in all nations are so intent on ensuring that these 3 elements are missing from all of our lives, the tactics deployed by them to ensure their absence in our lives, and the steps we can take to ensure that we embrace these elements and live a unique life distinct from the rest of society. I cover (1) the distinctions between schooling and education, (2) the reasons why no one should ever become a parent without these three elements, and (3) the reasons why these 3 elements alone are not enough to produce a memorable life full of a state of flow and harmony, but require a deeply understood and conceived moral framework to accompany them.

    Today, I discuss how the mainstream media proliferation of Orwellian doublespeak has confused people into misunderstanding simple concepts like constitutional republics v. democracies, socialism v. capitalism, capitalism v. communism, free market capitalism v. socialism for oligarchs, growth v. bubbles, and so on. It is this misunderstanding of basic concepts that will cause many to be blindsided when when the Bubble of Everything collapses at some point between now and 2020.

    In Episode 7, I discuss how the story of Plato's Cave and Siddhartha apply to today's world more than ever and that the inability to distinguish between perception and reality is a deliberately manufactured affliction designed by the world's wealthy. I further discuss the fact that it will truly be difficult for one to understand the unfolding financial market crashes in 2018-2019 without truly understanding the lessons of Plato's Cave.

    In Episode 6, I discuss how those in control of creating the financial, religious, academic and career paradigms that exist in modern society encourage us not to think through distracting us through mindless entertainment and social media options, but if we can sort through all the distractions, the truth will set us free. I address how this topic is relevant across a broad spectrum of topics, including cryptocurrencies and bitcoin, the exploitation of human trafficking networks and the disposable fashion industry, the systemic sexual harassment problem of the global entertainment industry, the NFL protests and Colin Kapaernick, and even issues of parenting.
