I don't think so, they seem most upset with people who are misleading people into thinking that everything is going to be sunshine and roses on this path, in order for you to get to try their techniques and listen to them.  People who say what other people want to hear.  Leo may sometimes do this, I don't know, I'm not in his head and don't know if there are any games he plays in order to maximize the amount of people that end up listening to him.  That being said, it seems like Leo actually fairs on the side of this path being super difficult, and life being challenging.  If anything, Leo to me seems to aire on the side of telling us it's going to be at least as difficult, if not more difficult than it will be in reality.  In that way, I don't think they were taking a shot at him other than using that buzz word "actualized" which relates back to Leo.  So maybe a bit harsh, maybe ignorant, I don't know, but I didn't interpret it as a shot directly at Leo

Who knows, if they are, they're completely ignorant.

@Garuda Doesn't sound like it tbh. The term actualized is quite commonly used in personal development.

Leo is legit on the technical side of the matter and logic oh yeah. He is one of the best for the dormant folk who live in the cities.

It sorta sounds like it.  I think it’s just a joke though.  I’m sure Joe Rogan has watched many of Leo’s videos.

I've only heard part of this podcast, but they were very heavy on overcoming adversity, remaining high intensity, etc. Seems like a dig on people who live comfortable lives and can entertain these seemingly gimmicky methods (and from many YouTubers they are), when Goggin's had to overcome incredible amounts of adversity. I believe he went through Navy Seal training 3 times before he got through. One of only a few African Americans to do so. 

Kind of a dig at Leo, but not really.

I'd take it as a compliment, see.  It all depends on how you interpret things.  Everything has pros and cons.  It's a good habit to find the good in things that at first glance seem negative.  I don't just say this to be a smartass, this is the kind of thing that I've been doing in practice.  It's this whole mindset that there are pros and cons to everything.  And really what you want to do is make the most out of every situation.  There's kind of a macho penis-measuring thing going on here with so and so knows how to do personal development the right way and so and so doesn't.  But you can do that with anything!  You can do that over brands of beer.  That's just kind of how masculine people joke around and express themselves.  We all do that, right!  But everybody knows that Leo has some great videos, that's why I said I'm sure Joe Rogan has watched lots of Leo's videos as we all have.

The unfortunate truth is that a lot of people stumble over one or two of Leo's videos and make a judgment and sweeping generalization within a minute or two. Rare is the person who stops to listen in-depth to what Leo is really saying throughout his body of work.

I have little doubt that Joe Rogan has stumbled across one of Leo's videos at some point, but I'd also bet a lot of money that he never took the time to listen to any of Leo's 1+ hour videos in full receptiveness. It's easy for people to quickly mis-categorize others on YouTube and switch to another video, particularly when it comes to personal development - and even more particularly when they are measuring their potential wasted time versus potential benefit.

If Leo were to get on Joe Rogan's podcast and give him a fair conversation, I'm confident that Joe Rogan would be very tuned in to what Leo is saying (whichever direction it took). It would also bring in a lot of new people to Actualized.org willing to go down the rabbit hole.

He is probably not talking about Leo. Leo doesn't promise magic solutions to all of life problems.

Whether or not Joe Rogan was talking about Leo, he loves to take the piss out of everyone, himself included. He's a comedian and pokes fun at people all the time, in a kind way. I wouldn't take it too seriously or read much into it


How to get to infinity? Divide by zero.

I think it’s the word ‘Actualized’ that made me think he was talking about Leo.  It’s kind of a f*cked up judgment on Joe’s part.  And honestly I’m not a huge fan of Joe Rogan, I think he gossips too much for a living.  He basically copied the later Howard Stern model and pretends to be a psychologist and interviews people.  So what, that’s not personal development.  Talk and Personal Development can cross paths, but talk can also be a distraction to Personal Development.  This is also one of the reasons I kinda don’t like comedy because comics always need a butt of the joke.  Laughs cost something to create, it’s not all just innocent.  And I wouldn’t wanna be that kind of person who’s always trying to seek or create a laugh.  I’m glad I don’t have that neurotic drive in me.  Need to laugh or to make people laugh seems like it’s a good thing on the surface, but it’s got a dodgy side to it too.  There’s often but not always a cruel side to humor.

Not sure if he is really talking about Leo, but Damn, how do we contact Joe Rogan to invite Leo for his podcast? I've tried twitter and nothing, I've been to his comedy shows, I'm gonna try to talk to him in person, any other ideas?
