An excerpt from my recent podcast with Andrew Calderella, an inspirational speaker, trainer, and coach.
Being a dad now, the thoughts of both my daughters getting bullied and them being the bully scare the hell out of me. So I love what you said that treating others as equals no matter what.
That is the golden rule “treat others as you want to be treated. This idea of reciprocity, of equality is essential to us being successful not only as people but as species, right? As a race, and as a world, you could look at most of the problems in the world could be solved by three beliefs. And this is if we live these beliefs, it would solve most problems in the world.
One is respecting life. It's basically caring for our world properly, so it can thrive and not destroy us, provide all our food and water and everything else. Secondly, all people are equal, and lastly the golden rule, treating people as you would want to be treated.
And seriously if you look at most of the problems in the world, either in the police or in the environment or whatever, it always stems down to almost those three things. So you know like I said when I’m showing the way and all of this my whole life’s journey and why I’m on your show and talking about all this stuff is because I kept finding things throughout my life. That was like these big epiphanies like people say I can put things together sometimes and I was really into philosophy and theology and studying all the wisest among us in the world throughout all of human history and I kept finding these golden threads and I wove them together and I had these huge epiphanies and I’d share them and I’d be like hey, what about this idea of true success or the meaning of life or these four principles that we are all after for the solution. We’re seeking to be our best and all these things I kept sharing with people and they were like wow you have to share this, you really have to write a book. You have to get out there and talk about it.
So after 30, that's what I am doing right now. So the first book is out and I am going on shows to share the wisdom and again it's not about me, this is about the human race’s solutions on how we can be the best people we can be.
