If you’ve wanted to unf*ck yourself and discover your purpose, then do we have the Do the Work show for you.

Today I’ll be talking with Gary John Bishop, personal development and urban philosophy expert, the New York Times best-selling author of “Unf*ck Yourself” and “Stop Doing That”, and the author of an irreverent new guide to getting unf*cked, “Do the Work”

And that’s just what I want to talk with him about today, about changing your life and discovering your purpose. Plus we’ll talk about captain stardust, soccer and barbarians, relationships and vegas, frolicking with orphaned baby Koalas, Peruvian acoustic guitars and Machu Picchu, and what in the world suburbia and creating a man has to do with anything.

Key Points Discussed:

  • The most important thing we must do to unf*ck ourselves (03:28)
  • Writing down our beliefs and assumptions and then challenging them  (04:46)
  • What’s the importance of making promises and keeping them? (08:21)
  • How to remind ourselves of the promises we’ve made ourselves (13:05)
  • How important is our self-talk and where has it driven the majority of us today? (15:13)
  • Interrupting the drift of our default self (17:21)
  • Understanding the machine so we can have choice and an option of other ways to express ourselves and behave (21:07)
  • Stretching the possibilities of the bag of the bones that we are so we can start to shake things up (23:56)
  • The pretense of “I don’t care” among young people and the value in a young person starting to test the world for themselves (25:46)
  • Do you give yourself that complete and total forgiveness? (28:42)
  • The absurdity of the idea of finding purpose (31:48)
  • The internal question that purpose is supposed to answer (34:02)
  • How do we begin to find the context if we’re driven and lost by the content? (38:55)
  • How playing the guitar is the most selfish act that is also the most selfless because it recharges his soul to help others (43:15)
  • The importance of looking at our time and our day to day routine (46:27)
  • The two steps to freedom and the one tool we can use to shift our perspectives and challenge our beliefs (51:44)
