Will Human Connection Be a Thing of The Past? Apple Vision Pro and Meta Quest Headsets
Are we standing on the precipice of a revolution in human connection, or teetering on the edge of its demise? We tackle this question head-on by looking at the Apple Vision Pro and Meta's Quest headsets as our guides. Picture a world where walking down the street or attending a meeting could be fundamentally altered by the technology we wear. This episode is not just about the headsets themselves, but also the philosophies that drive them—the spatial computing of Apple and the virtual realms of Meta—each with profound implications for our interactions, professions, and the very fabric of our relationships.As our conversation unfolds, we'll contemplate the Star Trek holodeck's science fiction becoming our reality, where sensors and artificial intelligence morph our world in real time. Imagine the potential transformation in fields like architecture and medicine, where augmented overlays could provide invaluable insights. Yet, with this power comes the question of intrusion: will we choose to intensify our reality with digital interference, or will we command technology to step back, allowing us to savor genuine human experiences? Join us for a thought-provoking session that probes the delicate dance between embracing innovation and maintaining our humanity, all while considering how we might direct this technological symphony to enrich, rather than diminish, the essence of our daily lives.Send us a Text Message.Grab your free chapter here > https://www.engineeredtolove.com/sampleAnd to celebrate the anniversary, Paperback and Kindle versions are now 55% off! ⚡Pick up a copy for yourself or your team today and remember to leave a 5 Star ⭐ Review to share your experience!Check out on > https://www.engineeredtolove.comWatch the full video episode at Justin Wenck, Ph.D. YouTube Channel!Check out my best-selling book "Engineered to Love: Going Beyond Success to Fulfillment" also available on Audiobook on all streaming platforms!

Life Lessons from Tulum: Pursuing Fulfillment Beyond Success
Ever thought about how the world mirrors your existence? This episode unpacks this profound concept as I share my unique journey in Tulum, Mexico. I've explored the sprawling underwater freshwater cave system of cenotes to encounter bats above, and hydrogen sulfide gas below, and came face to face during my dive with one of the most powerful feminine forces there is Barbie. I've also weathered unanticipated challenges, embodying the essence of the adage – the world is as you perceive it. These experiences prove that your perception shapes your reality.However, life in Tulum hasn't been all sunshine and rainbows. Amidst the manufactured luxury, there's a stark reality of frequent power outages and safety issues. These challenges, though daunting, serve as a compelling reminder that our response to life's unpredictability becomes the blueprint for our existence. Switching gears, we also delve into the quest for fulfillment and joy in life.

The 2 Things Keeping You From The Life You Want (Tulum, Mexico)
Hint: It's Not What You ThinkWhile I was in Lake Atitlan Guatemala I had the lesson reinforced that literally anything we want in life is possible and that it really only takes two simple things.The lake is surrounded by many small and modest villages along with some of the most spectacular resorts and villas that can rival anywhere in the world. That might not sound so special until you hear about HOW these posh places to stay are constructed.Lake Atitlan is surrounded by volcanos, which makes most of the lake-side property very very steep. This results in most of the land only being accessible by boat and after that human power. No trucks, no heavy machinery, not even animal assistance (animals are too big). That means everything to build and maintain these structures is all humans carried often up a very very steep hillside.Often we think that if something doesn't come easy or fast then we must be doing it wrong or it's not for us. If these gorgeous places can be built under these conditions then surely we can create anything we want in our life. What does it take to create what we want?It's not what you think. It's not money. It's not certifications. It's not know-how. It's not luck. Those can all come and go and can be acquired or borrowed. What's required and what can't come from anywhere else but inside of you are these two simple things:Vision and CommitmentIf you have no vision, then there isn't even anywhere to go, so direction to start out on.If you have no commitment then when the road becomes steep or the weather changes, you'll stop, turn around, or give up entirely.When you have Vision AND Commitment then anything is possible and it's only a matter of time before it becomes a reality.If you're not sure what your vision is then my best-selling book "Engineered to Love" (now available on audiobook) https://a.co/d/inqi2Kk is a great place to start. If you want results even faster and more tailor-made to you then contact me for my 1:1 and Group Offerings. There's something you're meant to create, so why not get started today?Send us a Text Message.Watch the full video episode at Justin Wenck, Ph.D. YouTube Channel!Check out my best-selling book "Engineered to Love: Going Beyond Success to Fulfillment" also available on Audiobook on all streaming platforms!

Why Wanting Keeps You From Having (Lake Atitlán, Guatemala)
Have you been wanting something for a long time, but you just haven't gotten it?In this episode, I talk about how continuing to want something prevents you from actually having what you want. This can seem counterintuitive. How can I stop wanting something if I don't have it?I like to call this the Amazon Prime way of living, where you only click the order button once, and then (at least where I live) the package will arrive. There's no need to worry anymore, the order is in. I have it in my mind already and I have an expectancy that it will arrive, but I don't have expectations (it could come from any delivery company and any time).I've been traveling a lot so I'll use a travel metaphor as well. Continuing to want the same thing is like staying at a ticket counter purchasing tickets for a trip and never leaving the counter to go get on the plane. Eventually, you have to leave the ticket counter and allow the process to occur which results in the trip you want. There's no Hawaiian vacation at the ticket counter, it involves going on a journey that might have unexpected delays or delights.What's something you've been wanting for a long time that you still haven't gotten? Let's see how we can shift you into having it.My book Engineered To Love has great exercises to shift you into having what you want. It's available on Amazon https://a.co/d/inqi2Kk P.S. I'll also be talking about my recent travels in Costa Rica and now to Guatemala.Send us a Text Message.Watch the full video episode at Justin Wenck, Ph.D. YouTube Channel!Check out my best-selling book "Engineered to Love: Going Beyond Success to Fulfillment" also available on Audiobook on all streaming platforms!
