With the volume of noise in our modern world that distracts and arouses the egoic mind, how do we awaken more consciousness so we can discover our deeper purpose?
We often fall prey to short-term solutions like drugs, alcohol, or social media to cover up the real feelings and desires we hold in our heart. While these mental and emotional band-aids make us feel better in the moment, they don't actually get to root of the deeper issue.
If we want to get in touch with our true inner voice and find greater meaning and fulfillment, we get to ask a profound question:
How can we shift our consciousness and overcome the allure of the egoic mind's temporary band-aids to powerfully show up and own the day?
On this episode of Wellness Force Radio, we explore this topic and much more with Aubrey Marcus, founder of Onnit. During this exclusive, in-person interview, Aubrey uncovers the tools and strategies we need to reconcile our egoic delusions, shed limiting beliefs, and heighten our conscious awareness.
"Philosophy bridges the gap between religion and practicality." - Aubrey Marcus
"Problems of the mind dissolve when our point of identity shifts from egoic delusions to our conscious awareness." - Aubrey Marcus
"I have been shaped into a tool to help elevate human consciousness." - Aubrey Marcus
"Breath can be the most elegant solution to alter our consciousness." - Aubrey Marcus
"You can't have confidence if your spirituality is made of tin foil and you've never actually put it in the fire." - Aubrey Marcus
"You can't succeed by profiting off of someone else's loss." - Aubrey Marcus
"We need to appreciate the value of knowledge, asking questions, and seeking the truth." - Aubrey Marcus
"Buy the fancy clothes and wear the fancy watch, but ultimately know that it's silly. Know that if you had to dangle them over a bridge and drop them in the water, that we could do it with a laugh and not with pain." - Aubrey Marcus
I've always believed to play any game well, you best know what all the buttons do. As an entrepreneur, athlete, and consciousness explorer I've spent a lifetime pressing all the proverbial buttons in the game of life, and the Aubrey Marcus Podcast is a venue to bring forward the lessons learned from triumph and disaster. We bring in world class guests to discuss how you can support your body, turn resistance to assistance, harness the potential of your mind and emotions, and cultivate a battle tested spirituality without all the BS. But most importantly we have some fun while we do it. Follow me on social @AubreyMarcus, and for more on the tools of human optimization check out @Onnit.
AUBREY MARCUS FOUNDED ONNIT IN 2010

A 20 YEAR NATIVE OF AUSTIN, TEXAS
Aubrey graduated from the University of Richmond in 2004 with a degree in philosophy and classical civilization. He soon founded a boutique marketing firm, specializing in brand development and eCommerce. It was during these seven years running the agency that Aubrey conceived of Onnit.
