Video: The Art of Dropping Out — Disengaging from Cultural Expectations for Fun & Profit

by Kevin Delaney

The Art of Dropping OutIn this archived webchat, I discuss a topic that’s sure to raise a few eyebrows. (So what else is new?)

Conventional society wants nothing but good things for you — and from you. If you do what you’re told, you can own a nice home, drive a nice car, work a prestigious job, bank an impressive salary.

The catch is, to experience these things often requires you to relinquish much of your unique identity. From the moment we step into the “system” (and sometimes before), we’re pummeled with the idea that suppressing your true self and adhering to the expectations of others is the key to success in life.

In this webcast, I challenge several cherished cultural norms, and suggest ways you can move beyond conventional thinking, into a life of abundant freedom.

When I heard Kevin Delaney’s podcast on “The Art of Dropping Out”, it brought into focus the direction I was heading in. I spent most of my life doing the three things that well intentioned society and family demands of us. When I heard Kevin’s explanation of “dropping out” in order for to us take control of our creative selves and using the creative spark within us to springboard us to “world domination” in our passions, the lights, bells and whistles blew the roof off! If you want to get off your couch and into a brighter future you need to hear Kevin’s podcasts NOW! Stop whining about what you don’t have and use what you do have to launch you into a brighter new world. 5…4…3…2…1 Launch! See my art at M.C. Starr
