65 – Promoting change from within

February 18, 2011

(duration 24:05)

In this show we discuss some of my new experiences in the Land Down Under and then touch on the six pillars of self-esteem by psychologist Nathaniel Branden. We address some of the six pillars, particularly in relation to a listener’s email, which shares her healthy mind fit body experiences amidst a culture that is not so inclined to health and fitness. Ultimately, the best way to inspire others is to present an example of optimal functioning to others and thus pique their interest about the process of achieving a healthy mind and fit body.

  1. I can’t speak for the land of Oz but as a kiwi, we antipodeans tire of yanks telling us “it’s cheaper in america” or whatever.

    Well, meat is cheaper in NZ than in america and guaranteed to be grass fed throughout its life and growth hormone free. Antibiotics added only when the animal needs them. We don’t have to feel guilty about supporting wars we don’t believe in and of course theere are no ge crops grown here.

    I’d reckon that roo meat was shot on the farm, eating grass (or maybe jumping the fence and high grading wheat or barley).

    I live in a small village and pay NZ$400/annum at a gym with enough weights to keep competitive rugby players happy. That’s 30 hours at minimum wage.

    • Thanks for the note, Kem. Both Kev and I also tire of all places under the coercive rule of governments, messing up their economies right and left. Sounds like New Zealand has some more economic freedom than Oz. I did buy some Aussie beef burgers yesterday, which are pretty tasty, and less than a dollar a patty. Wish I had access to your gym. :) I paid 16.50 for one workout at the local city gym here.

  2. Hi Wes

    Welcome to Oz. I really enjoy your podcast but I did actually LOL in your latest when you talked about farming kangaroos. Kangaroos are totally wild and breed like rabbits in good seasons. There are more ‘roos than people in Oz and every year about 7 million are officially culled – so farming is definitely not required. The meat is great paleo food; really high in CLA and zinc. I recommend getting as much as you can while you’re here!

  3. Appreciate it, Gail. Interesting info about the oversized rabbit population. ;) No wonder roo is less pricey here (contrasted with turkey!).
