They say age is just a number—but I believe aging is a perspective.
Aging can harden you to long-held beliefs that don’t serve you—or it can bring wisdom.
Aging can restrict your sense of possibility—or it can unlock your further potential.
Aging can bring sickness, disease, and suffering—or it can bring continued health, deeper fulfillment, and renewed vigor.
Aging happens to everyone. But allowing it to limit you is really a choice.
In other words, welcome to our fourth masterclass episode where we share big truths from some of my best podcast guests, honing in on a single theme or subject matter. Today we are diving deep into the subject of longevity, specifically: how to age healthfully, how to biologically promote longevity, how to embrace your innate potential for growth beyond the prescribed productive years, and how to cultivate a true life-long expansion of self.
“When it comes to longevity, the goal isn’t just to live as long as possible—it’s to live as vibrantly and energetically as possible for as long as possible.”
– RICH ROLL
We talk a lot about longevity on this show—from science and technology to diet and mindset, but the foundational truth I want to impart is this: longevity is possible.
There are choices you can make to access not simply the longest lifespan possible, but also the greatest health span your body is capable of. There are real, tangible, practical methods we can employ to get the maximum value out of our bodies and therefore our lives.
The visually inclined can watch it all unfold on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify. Big thanks to Dan Drake for his instrumental help crafting this very special episode.
