There's a difference between learning and experiential learning. With experiential learning, you go through life and you get knocked down. Maybe you become an addict for a while or you go through broken relationships and blame it on other people. Then you wake up one morning thinking the last three relationships didn't work out; maybe it's me. From that point, you are on a mission of growth and of finding your purpose in life. To grow and have a true purpose you need emotional inventory, self-awareness, connection with a higher power, as well as curiosity and humility. - Josh Trent

  • Why we have to be aware of the "goody-two-shoes" who believe they know what is best for everyone else because a lot of times their motive isn't pure.

Power Quotes From The Show

Raise Your Vibration

"If you look at David R. Hawkins' work and you understand the frequencies of each emotion, the lowest possible frequency in the entire world is shame. As you climb the ladder from shame towards love, there are many rungs of the ladder that we have to grip and learn how to climb on. It's not until about 250 on a frequency basis that we actually get to courage. So, I think maybe some of us have to rifle around in these lower frequencies so that we became so uncomfortable that we would actually go from despair to anger and from there to courage, love, and eventually purpose." - Josh Trent

How an Unhealthy Drive Harms Us

"To do anything in life, there are so many things that have to be welcomed in and allowed space for otherwise we're just white-knuckling and our drivenness actually harms us. This unhealthy drive actually becomes a disease that we can be aware of unless we're presented and tune into ourselves." - Josh Trent

Purpose Can Shift Over Time

"Purpose can shift and change over time. Some people are lucky and know that from 3 years old they want to be a fireman but I was never one of those people. When people just know what they're meant to do, it can be called their God-given purpose but I think it can still shift. Then answer depends on a lot of different variables for each person." - Josh Trent
