076 – Winter is Here with Dr. Patrick Bays
“The sooner in life, you can establish your sentinel values, the straighter your path.”
Listen as your hosts Dr. Michael Bays and Dr. Patrick Bays, discuss sentinel events, what they are, and how they can change your life path. Patrick shares his formula for dropping into the void, the three types of people in the world, how your decisions affect the people in your life and much more on this episode of The Hollow Tube.
Patrick speaks about Ethos, what Ethos is, and how important it is to take care of the type-one people around you. They share that in childhood, we have sentinel marks that affect our lives and reappear when triggered and how our minds are designed to process only information needed to take action.
Patrick also talks about internal perception and how we need to have a confident indifference when making decisions while standing on the precipice. Michael brings up the parallel of Patrick’s formula to a 16th-century samurai and his five rings’ battle. When you have had people in your childhood that have hurt you emotionally or physically, you need to bring healing to the child you once were and realize they can’t hurt you anymore.
Listen, as Michael shares the three things he does when turbulence hits his life and threatens his type ones. They also point out that when there are no good decisions to be made, it’s necessary to triage the issues and handle the most important first and work your way down the list instead of looking at them as a whole and getting overwhelmed.
Did you know that Michael shares his morning ritual every Wednesday morning on the Facebook Hollow Tube channel? It’s called Sunrise Supercharge. Michael believes that the power is in the ritual, and the goal is to become a hollow tube, but you have to show up to practice to be successful.
