Podcast: Sacred Values of the Middle Class — and Why You Must Reject Them

by Kevin Delaney

Middle-Class ValuesValues are at the root of every important success or failure. A person’s values shape their concept of what’s possible in life; what’s worth doing, having and pursuing.

In this podcast, I examine three of the most cherished values held by conventional society — hard work, formal education, and a good job.

I explain why these values are essentially empty, and I present three alternative values which can contribute to your prosperity and happiness. (12 minutes)

Hey Kevin, great message man, really hits it home with me. Its one of the great struggles of the last couple years that I have had with my parents. Good work!

Awesome Podcast Kevin — enjoyed it very much – excellent content and advice delivered succinctly.

In particular – Love your point about being a self-educated person

I just finished listening to your podcast on the “three values”. The desire to learn more is what brought me to the site and podcast. Fantastic! I think you are spot on!

I love this motivating post Kevin and think that it’s very true. Many people are stuck where they are due to fear, not working smart, and trying to live up to what society wants from them. By planning, taking a chance, and believing in what you want, you can achieve anything. I am a living testament of this. =)
