The American Life is Killing You Podcast
I recently did a podcast that HITS HARD to all of us here living in the U.S.
CLICK HERE to give the episode a full listen it’s titled The American Life is Killing You
This episode came from a blog titled the same: The American Life is Killing You by Erik Rittenberry – The original piece is amazing -Erik crushed it – and if you want to dive deep it can be read here
It’s around a 10-15 minute read and the podcast it’s around a 45-minute listen.
Below is kick off to the original blog….
“I believe we are a species with amnesia, I think we have forgotten our roots and our origins. I think we are quite lost in many ways. And we live in a society that invests huge amounts of money and vast quantities of energy in ensuring that we all stay lost. A society that invests in creating unconsciousness, which invests in keeping people asleep so that we are just passive consumers of products and not really asking any of the questions.”
~ Graham Hancock
“If you’re in the same boat as the typical American, your dilemma might look something like this:
You’re enduring some type of chronic illness, over-stressed and rushed, unrewarding job, little or no savings, greatly in debt, fat mortgage, two vehicles in the driveway with a 5 or 7-year loan on each, lots of gadgets and toys to keep you occupied, huge TV, little free time for yourself due to your career and a demanding spouse, weekends filled with church and/or senseless entertainment, and a bathroom cabinet heavily stacked with pharmaceutical tic tacs to help cope with the emptiness of it all.
This is probably you and it’s OK. This is considered normal in America. You are a success. You’ve achieved the American Dream. Your obedience and education and hard work have paid off. Congratulations….”
My hope is this podcast or if you choose to read the original blog it serves as a wake up call to any of you out there who are struggling.
Just know you are in control and you can make a change if you truly want to.
You don’t have to play the comparison keeping up with the Joneses game anymore….
Until next time eat well, train hard & be nice to people.
