Finding Your Gold and Essential Nature — Alyson and Tripp Lanier

Is FOMO driving you to constantly be busy, busy, busy?

Is it scary to admit that the hustle and grind is killing your motivation?

And when is our resistance trying to help us?

Today Alyson and I discuss motivation, resistance, and the cult of success. We talk about how it’s necessary to learn how to thrive in the world, but ultimately we have to stop jumping through hoops, forge our own path, and create success on our own terms.

In this conversation:

  • Losing motivation: How do I get my fire back?
  • The hustle and grind
  • FOMO and the fear of not being busy
  • Is your morning routine BS?
  • Indoctrination: do this to be successful


  • Just don’t be a loser
  • Jumping through hoops vs doing what nourishes you
  • Getting out of your own way
  • What are you called to do?
