Description

What dream do you have that’s so big, others call it impossible?

It seemed impossible to land on the moon — until we did it. It may seem impossible to scale an abundance of land, medicine, education, creative freedom, clean water, energy — until we do it. The limits to what our species can achieve are bound only by our imaginations.

Internationally renowned entrepreneur and thought leader Naveen Jain created the Moonshots Podcast to bring you living examples of people who are solving the world’s biggest challenges through innovation. His goal is to help you develop your passion, pursue your purpose, and make your mark on the world.

The internationally renowned founder of Moon Express, World Innovation Institute, iNome, TalentWise, Intelius, and Infospace, Naveen sees beyond the current business and technological landscape, creating companies that make a true impact. He and his guests will inspire you to do the same — and, show you how.

“In every moment, experience is born and experience dies” — Deepak Chopra on Moonshots   Deepak Chopra has been dubbed by Time magazine as "the poet-prophet of alternative medicine." A worldwide guru and prolific author of 86+ published books, Deepak has amassed a following of individuals seeking a life of well-being and freedom from illusion.   In today’s insightful conversation, Naveen and Deepak dive deep into the topics of: reality, life, death, spirituality, evolution, consciousness—and so much more. Together, they explore the mystery and wonders of our minds and this planet we call home. This episode will prompt you to clarify the way you experience life, and learn to access infinite possibilities by seeing what is real, and what is illusory.   Discover: Deepak’s Moonshot: Liberation from all human constructs.  We’ve evolved to experience the world in a unique way, and every species has as unique of an experience as us. What creates our experience, awareness, and perception of the world? There’s actually never any experience happening in the brain, so where do experiences actually occur? Deepak’s 3 pieces of advice: 1. Get rid of your habitual certainties. 2. Be grateful that you have a consciousness that can create new things that did not exist before. 3. When you do engage with thinking, reflect deeply. Ask yourself, “Who am I really?”  “The ability to think is an extraordinary ability—but the ability to not think is even more important.”   Episode References:  Deepak Chopra's Book: Metahuman Avidya Neural correlates of consciousness (NCC) Scientist Donald Hoffman - Desktop Icon Metaphor Qualia Gödel's incompleteness theorems The Man Who Knew Infinity   Connect with Deepak Chopra on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube, and the Chopra Center website at www.chopra.com.  And, listen to his podcasts, Infinite Potential and Daily Breath   Watch the full-length video version of any Moonshots episode here on YouTube.   Connect with Naveen on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook @naveenjainceo.

“I want to create a better experience ... if I create that experience, then everyone else benefits from that too.” — Adam Buschbacher At age 16, Adam Buschbacher decided he didn’t want to work for anyone else.

“The sheer fact ... that I exist means that I matter.” - Elissa Fisher Harris on Ikigai   After growing up in an unsupportive household, and as a transient homeless young girl, Elissa knew that putting herself through school was her way to find a community. At age 13, her aunt gave Elissa her first experience of home.  After being turned away by traditional medicine during her own health crisis, Elissa found holistic medicine out of a need to heal her body.  Flash forward to today: she’s a lauded well-being and social impact strategist who serves as Partner and Chief Impact Officer of 5th Element Group. And now, she's pursuing her TWO Moonshots with full energy, clear intention, and a brave and devoted heart. There’s a difference between ego and self-esteem. Many people are confused about what true self love is Your job is not knowing what others think of you; it’s knowing who you truly are Become your own advocate. Trust your body; listen to your gut. Invest in your wellness today, rather than your illness tomorrow The impact company she works with, 5th Element Group, focuses on practical optimism for sustainability: finding resilient technologies and helping them grow through partnerships. They call them “Omni-wins” — wins for everyone involved   Elissa’s advice: Seek an integrative doctor. If that’s not accessible for you, learn from thought leaders like Mark Hyman and Frank Lipman about holistic medicine.   Episode References: Ikigai Nieper Theory: Hans Nieper predicted that modern medicine will implode itself, and be replaced with a more traditional, individualized kind of care  Mark Hyman  Frank Lipman Resilient Child Theory Imposter Syndrome Genova Diagnostics (Labs): Diagnostic Laboratory Testing for Wellness & Preventive Medicine    Find out more about 5th Element Group: the impact amplifier that’s making the UN Sustainable Development Goals a reality by partnering with social impact-motivated community investors, brands, leaders, and NGOs.

Mr. Jain, I began listening to this podcast because I have found your enthusiasm inspiring and infectious. Recently I listened to ep.7 with Dr. Momo. it was very disappointing to realize that I was just listening to a 30 minute sales pitch for your own company. You have every right to want to promote your products and I believe there is merit to the s science. In the future I don't believe it is necessary for you to make believe that you were somehow learning in real time revelatory fashion the concepts your business partner presented. I think your audience is more intelligent than that. In closing I do believe your work is important and I am glad big thinkers like you exist.
