What does it even really mean to be intelligent? What is
intelligence? For a long time, I used to think that intelligence
was how smart you were and that's part of it but what we're really
shifting into at Wellness Force is answering the question, what are
the real, tangible courses and products out there in our world
right now that are the best, what are we working towards as a
society, and how can we apply the embodied lessons we learn? That's
what we're all looking for. The gathering and application is part
of the intelligence process. - Josh Trent

We Have Arrived
If you’ve been listening to Wellness Force for a
while, or if you’ve been with us since the beginning, you know by
now that great things tend to take us time, effort, and the hardest
one of them all - trusting the process - especially when it comes
to our wellness. For episode 300, I am sharing the 10 biggest
lessons I have learned thus far on this journey.
I want to share my truth: This entrepreneurial
and podcast path has not been 100% rainbows. Even since early
childhood, I have known, deep down, that I march to the beat of a
different drummer. Maybe you feel that too, and that’s why you’re
here. I’ve faced inner and outer demons I wouldn’t wish on anyone,
and since I woke up in 2014, I’ve done some really, really, hard
work to let go of old stories about genetics, beliefs, and the
people and things that don't serve my wellness. But yet as hard as
this has been, I’ve also learned that when you operate from a place
of love and service to others, and if you really want something,
all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.
This podcast has been my home, my work, and my life for
4 years now, and today, I get to give thanks to YOU.

Power Quotes From The Show
Just The Joy Of The Conversation Is A Gift
"I had no idea that my life would be this rewarding and this
challenging. I say I have both because if you look at any
relationship, whether it's with friends or a significant other,
it's when we go through the challenges of travel and connection and
schedules and work to actually get the podcast out there or even
just going to a new town and meeting new people, there's always
going to be a bitter before there's the sweet. So, the sweet is
getting to be able to text Dr. Jade Teta or email Dave Asprey or
connect with some of these people that I had idolized when I was a
personal trainer but I've only done that because I did the work
brick by brick, day by day, year by year to let these people know
that when it was time for us to have a conversation, that I really
cared and that I was really adamant about letting them know how
much I respect them and whether or not I get anything from them
besides a conversation, just the joy of the conversation was the
gift. That is a great way to build friendships." -
Healing Ourselves Every Day
"If I'm always in the process of being my best self then I'm
always in the process of being healed, cured, or evolving into
whatever the new version of me has let go of. In other words, did I
let go of stress, physical trauma, emotional trauma? Every single
day, what am I being cured from? What am I stepping towards? That's
the whole point of this life. If we don't constantly look at how we
can heal and cure the spiritual malady that we have as a society;
as a human race, then we're not going to make it. I believe in
humanity; I believe we're going to make it but only if we look at
this life through the healing and cured lense." - Josh
Doing The Work Together
"When I think about the evolution of my healing, it comes
through this podcast, and it's what I want people to feel from me
every episode. Not only am I doing this work but we're also doing
this work together so that when we're out of the spaces of doing
the work, we can actually show up and live our life well. We can
actually show up and have loving relationships and full joy and
full expression and full connection with our friends and partners."
- Josh Trent
