SHOW TOPIC:  Mental training, preparing for adversity, and avoiding fiat-mindset slippage

This episode covers how kids need to learn to deal with disappointment and adversity.  If you are homeschooling, it’s an easy trap to fall into to try to control everything.  Be intentional.  Mental training, e.g., mental resilience and anti-fragility, is an important topic often absent from standard curriculum.  Parents should be aware their beliefs from the fiat world are at risk of sipping into and being carried over to the Bitcoin world.  Pay attention to the paradigm you are passing to your kids.

IN THIS EPISODE, YOU'LL LEARN:

  • Viktor Frankl’s “Man's Search for Meaning” describes, first hand, how and why some people give up while others are able to persevere through extreme adversity.

  • Kiyosaki described “internal economy” versus “external economy”
  • The rich are playing a different game.  They are playing by a different set of rules.
  • The moment you accept money, you accept being an employee.
  • What you truly believe is what is communicated to your kids
  • Clarifying the distinction between an entrepreneur mindset and a value-for-value (V4V) kids allowance
  • Parents should be aware their beliefs from the fiat world are at risk of sipping into / being carried over to the Bitcoin world
  • Kids need to learn how to deal with disappointment.  If you are homeschooling, it’s an easy trap to fall into to try to control everything.  
  • There are alternatives to sports to give kids an opportunity to be exposed to adversity.

  • Face your fear … example Rejection Proof
  • Mental training, e.g., mental resilience and anti-fragility, is an important topic often absent from standard curriculum.
