Dreams and Demons

 In this episode we elaborate on just how exotic a cocktail we are. Light and dark. It’s our nature to have this dualistic blend. We can’t help it. Question is, “How do we treat the dark?” Let’s go into the grey together and see what happens! And, as always, our conversation is roguish, as we wove in our core values, and we’ll share a mystic MacNugget. Off we go into the shadowlands…

 Hey Stu…

“Namaste, all of you beautifully, exotic cocktails…

Comment on Facebook, email us, we want to more of these stories!


  • Angel/devil, Gollum/Smeagol, yin/yang (somewhat)
  • Loving both, just not to the same degree.
  • Identify both. What are your demons and what are your dreams?
  • Stop fighting the demons, you just give it focus and energy.
  • We need the demons to appreciate the dreams

  • Love
  • Security
  • Joy
  • Hope
  • Pleasure
  • Fulfillment


  • Anger
  • Addictions
  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • Negative life experiences
  • Bad decisions

Life is a mixture. It’s gray. It’s shifts constantly. White and black, as the seasons of our life change. The ultimate goal is to love more light into our lives that will displace more and more of the dark. It will never be eliminated.


  • Practice thankfulness
  • Dwell on the good.
  • Set positive intentions.
  • Learn to love the whole you.
  • Be kind to yourself.
  • Cast your vision and dreams with others.

About the Podcast

The WizeGuys
Going rogue in pursuit of wisdom.
A cosmic exhale—it’s what we all yearn for. Mac and Stu are a couple of WizeGuys with decades of experience in navigating the nuances of life as entrepreneurs, family men, coaches, mentors, facilitators, thought leaders, masters of relationship, and contemplative mystics. Join with them as they apply an eclectic approach to life, centered around the concept of cultivating wisdom. They will help you build discernment through the art of asking the “whys”, and by showing that going rogue is the only way to break free of the biases that keep us from doing it just a little bit better.

They realize that what got us here is not going to get us there. Take a journey with them where you’ll experience ah-ha moments stimulated by their conversation that’s filled with wit, candor, vulnerability, and always seasoned with right amount of the mysterious. We’re all exotic cocktails, and learning to celebrate our wonderful uniqueness as we build oneness is the perfect recipe for crafting a better world for everyone.

Mac is The Maverick and Stu is The Maestro. Blending those perspectives in an almost magical way to get after it and call it out will show you how together is better. They’ll use the events of the day to practically apply a roguish blend of modern perspective and timeless wisdom sagacity. Seeking clarity over certainty changes everything. You want some of that? Then relax, enjoy, and engage. Oh...and make sure that you strap in…
