One of my favorite authors is back on the show! Neil Strauss is an award-winning, 10-time New York Times best-selling author. He was a music critic, cultural reporter, investigative journalist and columnist at The New York Times for a decade and has been a contributing editor at Rolling Stone for more than 20 years. He's well-known for earning the trust of some of the most guarded and secretive celebrities in the world.
His life has been enthralling and complex: Remarkably insightful interviews with celebrities and musicians, award-winning journalism, successful authorship and ghostwriting, becoming a pick-up artist, reforming himself and his relationships, becoming a parent and hosting programs focused on healing trauma and transforming lives.
In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we talk about facing fears, discomfort and anxieties—how to tell the difference among them and what we get wrong about them. That leads us to a cognitive bias called the neglect of probability. As you may know, running from failure versus moving towards success is a very different mindset.
Neil shares his fascination with how beliefs get implanted and reinforced, and offers up a theory as to why so many people go off track when they're working on finding their passion and purpose. He says, “Do something you love enough that you care about each detail of it.” And that’s our cue to share some highlights of his intriguing new podcast—will it be called “’Gonzo?!”—that debuts this month.
Enjoy the show!
