“You don’t want to be surrounded by ‘yes-men.’ You want to be surrounded by people who are going to say, “Hey Boss, I have a better way.” - Jocko Willink

Commitments are part of life.

From our jobs to our relationships, each demands our time and a specific role for us to play. When these become too much, we can feel our identity being crushed by lack of freedom. That’s why, to defend against this, we must harness a new level of personal discipline, so that we can use the free time to unlock new heights.

That’s why on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by Navy SEAL Jocko Willink to discuss his personal habits. Jocko is the author of 3 New York Times Bestsellers, most notably Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win. Willink’s insights spread across multiple domains: from discipline to foreign policy, all the way to how to run a business. Tune in to hear his insights, so you can optimize your day to find the best routine possible.

“I wake up at 4:30. That’s a really good root of personal discipline. When you make the decision to not snuggle back with your pillow, you will feel better.” - Jocko Willink

“We’ve grown up in under an antibiotic umbrella where we think antibiotics are going to cover and cure everything.” - Dr. Martin Blaser

It’s a no-brainer.

When we’re feeling under the weather, we seek out the antibiotic prescription. For bacterial infections, this works incredibly well. Within days, the sickness has cleared out from our system, and we can return to our normal life. But what happens over the long-run from this quick-fix?

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by Dr. Martin Blaser, the Director of The Human Microbiome Project at NYU’s School of Medicine, to discuss the dangers of antibiotic use. Dr. Blaser has 28 patents, and is the author of Missing Microbes, a book that examines how our species is devolving with the declining supply of microbes in our system.

“Our system is completely backwards. It’s a false economy. People are making a lot of money out of germaphobia.” - Dr. Martin Blaser

Points to Keep In Mind

  • Humans are actually a partnership between microbes and us (equal numbers of cells)
  • Without microbes we would not be alive
  • There is evidence that our supply of microbes is disappearing
    • Evidence that this is at the root of the rising rates of autism, celiac disease, Alzheimer’s, etc.
  • Most probiotics have not been tested in scientific studies over the long term
  • Kids who take on average more antibiotics than others turn out fatter
  • We only look at the benefits of antibiotics because doctors are too concerned about liability
  • Babies pick up their mother’s microbes in the birth canal
    • Rising rates of cesarean sections are preventing this from happening
  • 70 years ago, agriculture experts figured out that if you feed antibiotics to animals, they gain weight faster
  • Some cities have an antibiotics in their drinking water
  • Sweden uses 40% of the antibiotics we use
  • Epidemics come from the lack of diversity in our current living situations
  • Kids born by C-section are more prone to disease (celiac disease, juvenile diabetes, etc.)
  • The rate of juvenile diabetes is doubling every 25 years
  • A Denmark study showed that antibiotics increase risk of inflammatory bowel disease by 14% in kids
  • We’ve engineered a system where the doctor-patient relationship is sterile
  • Antibiotics change the metabolism in adults
  • We need better diagnostics to determine viral vs. bacterial infections
  • Food preservatives are antibacterials destroying our microbiome
  • Our good bacteria fights the bad bacteria; this is the problem with anti-bacterial products
  • Hospitals and doctors like C-sections because they’re scheduled

It’s easy to find yourself in the wrong crowd.

On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are discussing the importance of screening these people before letting them inside our social circles. By implementing a stronger filter, we can ensure that those we spend our time with are the people having the greatest impact on our lives.
