#116: How to Stay Focused and Remove Obstacles (Big Idea)

Big Idea Tuesday:


We’ve all been there. We’ve gotten really excited about a project, made a goal, hit a roadblock, and lost momentum. When we lose sight of why we started in the first place, it becomes very easy to give up entirely.  


In today’s Big Idea Tuesday episode, Dhru takes us through exactly why we lose focus and drop our goals, projects, and dreams, and how to remove obstacles to get back on track. 


A big part of staying focused is checking-in on ourselves and remembering what we were excited to create and why. This gives us an opportunity to regroup, recenter, and ask the questions that matter so we can remind ourselves of the answers.


Why did I care about this project in the first place? What did I want to accomplish or see through? What was the vision? Do I still care? Is there something I’m afraid of? Even though things are tough, am I willing to keep going?


You would think asking ourselves these tough questions once would be enough, that somehow our mind would store the answers and keep them on file for future reference. And yet it just doesn’t work that way.


Thoughts of doubt, fear, and worry pile up. Obstacles and roadblocks happen. Other things can creep in and distract us. Living an everyday-life can easily cause these layers to build up, making it difficult to focus. That’s why it’s so important to be crystal clear about your goals and check-in with yourself often.


This practice helps us dig through all the nonsense, get through the layers, and arrive on the side of clarity. And when we are clear, focus just happens.

Is There Life After Death? These Scientists Have Some Fascinating Answers (Minisode #41)

Season 2, Ep. 19
We often think the mind is a creation of the brain, or that the mind and the brain are one and the same. But when the brain is offline for a number of reasons, like illness or injury, the mind can sometimes still be very active.Cases of near-death experiences have been reported since ancient times, and are described by 10% of people whose hearts stop. The medical world has generally ignored these “near-death experiences,” dismissing them as “tricks of the brain” or wishful thinking.In this week’s mini-episode, Dhru sits down with Dr. Bruce Greyson and Dr. Jim Tucker to talk about some of their most dramatic accounts of near-death experiences and stories of reincarnation from their patients. They share how these experiences can reveal a lot about dying and what might come after, and how they also reveal just as much about what makes a life meaningful and fulfilling.Dr. Bruce Greyson is a Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences at the UVA School of Medicine. He was a co-founder and President of the International Association for Near-Death Studies, and Editor of the Journal of Near-Death Studies. His award-winning research led him to become a Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and to be invited by the Dalai Lama to participate in a dialogue between Western scientists and Buddhist monks in India. His book, AFTER, is the culmination of almost half a century of scientific research.Dr. Jim Tucker is the Director of the UVA Division of Perceptual Studies, where he is continuing the work of Ian Stevenson with children who report memories of previous lives. He is the author of Before: Children's Memories of Previous Lives, a new 2-in-1 edition of his books Life Before Life and Return to Life.Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with Dr. Bruce Greyson here: https://lnk.to/DrBruceGreyson/Find Dhru’s full-length conversation with Dr. Jim Tucker here: https://lnk.to/DrJimTucker/For more on Dhru Purohit, be sure to follow him on Instagram @dhrupurohit, on Facebook @dhruxpurohit, on Twitter @dhrupurohit, and on YouTube @dhrupurohit.
