    Every so often, our work in the premium side of PeakProsperity.com is deemed so important that our paying subscribers request we share it with the general public. Last week's 'Off The Cuff' podcast received so many of these requests that we are releasing it to all here.

    In last week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris delivered a very personal message about how we each decide to live our lives.

    A growing number of people are watching the “prosperity” around them — record high asset prices, record-low unemployment, new technologies, etc — and yet feeling that we're making the wrong trade-offs as a society. All that wealth is flowing into fewer and fewer pockets, ecosystems are faltering and an alarming number of species are dying off, depression rates (especially among the youth) are skyrocketing.

    Off The Cuff: Living With Integrity

    It's time to choose a new direction

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris delivers a very personal message about how we each decide to live our lives.

    A growing number of people are watching the “prosperity” around them — record high asset prices, record-low unemployment, new technologies, etc — and yet feeling that we're making the wrong trade-offs as a society. All that wealth is flowing into fewer and fewer pockets, ecosystems are faltering and an alarming number of species are dying off, depression rates (especially among the youth) are skyrocketing.

    In short: there's more money flowing around than ever, and yet we and the planet are becoming sicker and unhappier.

    Why?

    From Chris' point of view, it comes down integrity. The modern human way of life lacks integrity as a guiding principle. For those of us who desire a better future, brining our actions into better alignment with our integrity is the path to true prosperity.

    Executive Summary

    • The importance of continuous learning and clarifying your Why?
    • Why personal integrity is your most valuable asset
    • Why our current challenges are actually a call to greatness
    • The key question is: How will you choose to answer it?

    There’s a generational breakdown occurring with increasing numbers of young people — let’s define them as the under-30 crowd — falling into despair, dismay and even outright demoralization over the state of the world.  Put bluntly, many of them see nothing to gain by preserving the status quo.

    Conversely, the over 50 crowd has already paid into the system and desperately wants to preserve the status quo.  That’s where their retirement dreams exist.  With their finger now on the brass ring, it’s simply unthinkable to ponder that it could slip out of their grasp.

    This demographic divide, between those with nothing to gain and those with everything to lose, grows wider every day.

    Here’s a very typical comment from a Millennial that I ran across just this morning (4/5/19).  It’s a very common refrain these days:

    There’s not much I can add to that besides to say, “You’re right!”  And, “Sorry.”

    The very worst of it all is that the system into which the young are born ask them to perpetuate that same system by getting good grades, going into college student debt, and then working extra hard as tax donkeys and debt slaves for the rest of their lives.

    As the above Millennial pointed out, it’s working in those (often pointless) jobs that is destroying the planet.  Might as well inject oneself daily with a cumulatively fatal poison.

    The promises of the generations before them ring hollow.  The pension shave all been raided and hollowed out.  Forced payments into Medicare and Social Security are never going to be returned in kind and are merely last-ditch payments to provide some measure of cover for the boomers relying on them.  Embarrassingly poor infrastructure and massive piles of debt and underfunded liabilities are the true economic bequeathments of the prior generations to the next.

    From Stephen Jenkinson we learned that every older person needs to be ready for the day when a younger person walks up to them and asks them two questions. “When did you know?”  and “What did you do about it?”

    For a disturbingly large number of olders (not elders) the answer is “Know about what?” because they are too deeply stuck in the current narrative to even notice the damage being done, let alone mount an intelligent, thoughtful response to it all.

    For the rest of us, we have to begin plotting our own path to breaking free from a self-destructive paradigm.

    To start on that path, first you must…  (Please enroll to read more)
