Introducing Myself, My Story, and My Values

By Jonathan Roseland

In this podcast, I introduce myself, my story, and my values...

If I had a less interesting life I would have made this podcast shorter. It will be worth your while to listen, you'll find it entertaining, educational, and provocative. If you're new to Limitless Mindset, this is the place to dive in - I'd like you to get to know me, my story, values, and life philosophy.

This episode is for my new podcast feed. Please download the Castbox app, subscribe to the Limitless Mindset Podcast, and listen to it there. I've tried all the podcast apps and Castbox is the best.

Checking my analytics I was most pleased to discover that my long autobiographical podcast was actually the most downloaded. So I've remastered and partially animated it for your listening and viewing pleasure!

Why listen to this long podcast...

1) I listen to a lot of podcasts or follow Youtubers that are interesting and informative BUT if I don't know the personal story, background, and biases of the person teaching me I'm lacking real crucial context for what they have to say.
For example, there's a philosopher I follow, Stefan Molyneux who has a great podcast and books, and he as a child had a terrible, abusive relationship with his mother - So I know that everything he says comes through that filter.
The book Atlas Shrugged has a new dimension of meaning if you know Ayn Rand's personal story of escaping hell on earth in the murderous soviet union
If you think about your favorite books by the authors you find yourself most engrossing, you probably know their background and story.
If we are going to have this relationship of me being in your earbuds or on your screen frequently, I'd like you to get to know me quite intimately.

2) I'm going to intimately discuss my values. Values are important, if we share some fundamental values then there's a lot more that we can learn from each other. If our values are fundamentally different, there's LESS that we can learn from each other. I'd encourage you to not waste your time with me and go learn this biohacking/lifehacking stuff from someone else whose values are more closely aligned with your values.
For example, recently I found this guy named Richard Hoagland, who has some kind of fringe but extremely fascinating theories about science, history, and astronomy (which I'll describe later on in this podcast). I was just having this novelty-induced mindgasm while listening to his ideas. So I listened to hours of his videos and podcasts and in doing so learned that his political values were quite different than my own. Knowing that he has a fundamentally different worldview than me, one that I think is wrong and disproven makes me somewhat skeptical of his theories about science, history, and astronomy. I don't throw his ideas into the intellectual rubbish bin because he's in a different political tribe than me BUT it provides me with a revealing context for his ideas.
My values are not set in stone, my values are still kind of fluid and plastic but I don't think I'm going to change my mind on any really big things. I remain somewhat open-minded BUT I'm not going to go 180 degrees on any of these. I bet that in 50 years I will still believe in the free market, free speech, coconuts, and taking smart drugs.

3) At 32 years old, I think now is a pretty good time to do this mini autobiography in audio format. I'm young enough that I can relate to all the millennials and even teenagers but I'm old enough that I can relate to Gen-Xers. I grew up while technology and the Internet were flipping everything on its head. So the world where we went to the library instead of doing a Google search to learn things and where we wrote letters as opposed to emails is NOT foreign to me.

4) Finally, I have a pretty interestingly personal story - I've seduced a politician's daughters in Colombia. I've hung out with spies in Kyiv, Ukraine. I've almost died twice underwater. I've caught on fire (quite literally) during a first date.

I don't think my story will bore you!
