Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) joins us for this deep dive into what it takes to cultivate the mindset of abundance that seemingly makes generosity possible, and how to overcome the evolutionary blips in our programming that make it so counterintuitive."And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make." -Paul McCartneyWhat We Discuss with Gabriel Mizrahi:Why the mindset of scarcity is your survival mode default that urges you to see the world as a zero sum game and hoard your resources accordingly.What you can do to reconcile this scarcity mindset with one of abundance that seemingly permits you to give generously without remorse.How you can begin practicing the behavior of generosity even before you've fully sold yourself on the belief of abundance.The many ways that tiny repetitions of generosity act to strengthen the muscles of abundance with giant gains.A smattering of good advice for cultivating abundance, and (we hope) an abundance of even better advice for making generosity second nature.And much more...Full show notes and resources can be found here: https://jordanharbinger.com/220Sign up for Six-Minute Networking -- our free networking and relationship development mini course -- at jordanharbinger.com/course!Häagen-Dazs invites you to treat yourself to any one of the nine flavors of its Trio Crispy Layers collection.

Chelsea is natural, her strength is that she is genuine n in the moment, her flow of conversation puts people at ease.. allows interviewee's to be themselves.. I'll admit I n intimidated by such strong personality women as a straight man but I love seeing the likes of Chelsea/Jordan/Jo Rogan/Bobby Lee. shine.. by being their unique selves like everyone can enjoy how michael jordan perform at his talent in basketball, u, just can't deny quality output...u gotta appreciate it n learn. thx Jordan another classic!

Thank you so much Joe and Jordan. I am positive my roommate is a malignant narcissist. He hits most of the characteristics you've listed in the podcast and my plans are to get away from him as soon as possible. He made me think it was me. I realize tho that I shouldn't have to apologize to neighbours and landlords for his behavior.

Hempcrete is a really neat product. There is a couple of companies in Canada that are trying to bring it to the forefront. Its fireproof, pest resistant, a carbon sink and hemp itself is incredibly multi use. Food for humans and animals, cloth, paper, bioplastics and oh so much more. It would make a good topic to do a podcast about (hint hint).

(Re: 206 last person comment) While I think Java is a great first language (I say this as the author of the 30 Days of Code tutorial series), this person sounds like a dabbler and I agree something like Python would be better for them to learn as an intro (or only) language where you can accomplish a lot without fully understanding what you’re doing. I would suggest they check out courses on Udemy (sign up for their emails — they have sales all the time and you can end up with courses for under $20 that enable you to learn at your own pace), get a highly-rated intro book, or if they’re really committed to self-driven learning they could get an O’Reilly Safari membership for access to books and videos about pretty much anything they might want to learn. Right now it seems their biggest issue is choice paralysis and they need to pick a thing, designate X time every day to developing it, and set a deadline for themselves to check in and see if they want to continue. Even if they cut their losses, they’ve still gained valuable context about the thing and also peace of mind because they will have found a new passion or know it’s not for them. Also the stalker advice earlier is 100% the only thing that works (or at least drastically reduces stalking incidences).

the last guy on feedback Friday should definitely take Python and not java. It is easier to learn and use in non Enterprise web application contexts. It really shines in scripting and machine learning, data science. which makes it much more versatile and useful if you have it as an addition to your usual work. you could write scripts that ease up your normal work. That's much harder to do in java. I would only suggest java if you want to be a full-time software engineer. cheers

Oh I do not like the new intro music at all. I always liked that you had none. I, like most listeners of podcasts (from what I've heard) listen on x1.5 or greater speed, and music doesn't sound good in that context. Also it just distracted me (moreso because of the change) and I had to go back and listen to the intro again because I failed to take in the info. Still loving the show though and congrats on passing 200!
