In part 2 of their discussion, Ostrolenk discusses his work and educational history and how it led him to working with the Unbeatable Mind Academy. Ostrolenk originally pursued an MBA, but was never passionate about the curriculum and after a personal tragedy reminded him that life is short, he began searching for subject matter that he truly desired to study. His search led him to the JFK University in California for his graduate studies and to the California Institute for Integral Studies for post-graduate work. Ostrolenk further discusses his education, influential professors, and how these experience shaped his professional direction.

Ostrolenk says, “Confidence with oneself begins with self- knowledge. We need to know our strengths, weakness, limitations and boundaries.” So true. If you know your best qualities, you can play them up instead of trying to cram yourself into the idealized version of what society thinks you should look like. And confidence is cumulative – the better you feel, the better care you’ll take of yourself. And so it goes.”

Things seems different; perhaps we have a new perspective, new set of behaviors to try out or more capacity in a particular line of development (such as increased emotional intelligence).

The world has seemingly changed for us – that is until Monday morning.The “reality” of our lives smacks us right into the changed state of consciousness and unfortunately “reality” wins.
