Victor Ung
An emotionally-stunted dude's exploration of what it means to be emotionally intelligent. Raised between Asian and American culture, and in the tech world, where mental and emotional health was not prioritized enough, this nerd aims to demystify what it means to not only be a man, but a human. As society progresses faster than humans were meant to keep up with, how do we adapt to an ever-changing world while strengthening our brittle emotions for resiliency?

I Coach An Asian Entrepreneur Friend On People-Pleasing (ft. Clover Lam)
This week, I’m sharing a recording of a FB live I was invited to by Clover Lam, creator of the community, Unconventional Asians. With her community, her mission is to encourage Asians to think and act outside of the box and breaking free from the stereotypes that's limiting us from our fullest potential. In her weekly FB lives, she offers herself up as “a client” for other coaches, experts, and therapists to help her through a personal struggle of hers. I figured this would be a good opportunity to share that session with you here as well to get a sense of what coaching could look like for you, as well as my coaching style.You can watch the video version in her FB group: https://fb.watch/1vjYvrFJOq.Connect with Clover: https://www.facebook.com/cloverlam-------------------------------------Follow the Instagram page for this podcast: http://instagram.com/humanuppodcastBecome a member of the Emotion Dojo for Asian men to improve your creativity and decision-making skills: https://bit.ly/emotiondojo.Download the “9 Ways To Become A Fulfilled, Badass Asian Dude”: http://badassasiandudes.com/subscribe.If you get value out of this podcast, consider supporting me to keep this show going: https://bit.ly/humanuppodcastdonation.Get access to a free 90-min Emotional Intelligence 101 Training at: http://victorung.com/eqtraining.If you’re a reader, clap for my writing on Medium: http://victorung.medium.com.

How To Bring Your ‘Fun’ Back (ft. Jeff Harry)
This week, I bring on Jeff Harry, a Positive Psychology and Play Coach. He helps individuals, schools, and businesses invite more play into their lives and work. Personally, in my “adulting” process, I left behind so much of my own sense of play, my child-like sense of wonder. I became super serious, responsible, and the “Model Minority”. And I lost access to joy.Here’s how we can get that back.Connect with Jeff on IG: https://www.instagram.com/jeffharryplays/Learn more about Jeff and his work: https://www.rediscoveryourplay.com/media-------------------------------------Follow the Instagram page for this podcast: http://instagram.com/humanuppodcastJoin the Facebook community: http://facebook.com/groups/cannaconnections.Become a member of the Emotion Dojo for Asian men to improve your creativity and decision-making skills: https://victorung.com/membership.Take this 10-min survey to get a complimentary cannabis coaching session with me: https://bit.ly/CannabisMeditationSurvey.If you get value out of this podcast, consider supporting me to keep this show going: https://bit.ly/humanuppodcastdonation.Get access to a free 90-min Emotional Intelligence 101 Training at: http://victorung.com/eqtraining.Connect with other Badass Asian Dudes, say I sent you! http://facebook.com/groups/badassasiandudes.If you’re a reader, clap for my writing on Medium: http://medium.com/@victorung.

Cannabis And Meditation, The Perfect Combination
Believe it or not, I used to judge people for smoking weed. I thought of them as having lower intelligence, lazy, and irresponsible. I used to also judge the more creative kids in my school for pursuing something I thought was vain and unstable. But after trying to be “cool” by giving up my own quirks and creative joys, I realized I was leaving behind so much of my own life. And after a lonely high school and college freshmen experience, still never even so far as had my first kiss, I finally decided to try weed when my trusted friend invited me.Since then, I’ve even expanded into using cannabis in my meditation practice to help me deepen my focus and insight into myself, which has allowed me to learn what it actually means for me to love myself and be confident in myself. And I want to share that with you!-------------------------------------Join the FREE community of Conscious Cannabis users: http://bit.ly/cannabishumans.Sign up for the 4-Week Cannabis Mediation Course/Challenge! http://bit.ly/cannabismeditation.Take this 10-min survey to get a complimentary cannabis coaching session with me: https://bit.ly/CannabisMeditationSurvey.If you get value out of this podcast, consider supporting me to keep this show going: https://bit.ly/humanuppodcastdonation.Get access to a free 90-min Emotional Intelligence 101 Training at: http://victorung.com/eqtraining.If you’re a reader, clap for my writing on Medium: http://medium.com/@victorung.
