Guiding Principle, Quote or Mantra
The North Star question for JP is: What wants to live through me?
Be curious about the answer rather than pretending to be certain about the answer.
The Story Behind JP’s YouTube Videos
JP’s YouTube videos are a result of asking himself his North Star question.
The first year and a half his videos were predominantly serious.
He found he was resistant to his natural sense of humor and some of his natural perspectives in life.
Luckily the creative spirits kept knocking at his door and eventually the door opened. He is curious how far the door has yet to open.
Everything he does a parody video on is something he has been immersed in personally.
His videos are a therapeutic exercise of JP helping him not take himself too seriously.
When You Tripped Up
JP’s relationship with a woman he had been with for 2 1/2 years recently ended.
What he is learning from this is to accept his beloved for who she is and not who he wants her to be. And to do his best to present himself in a relationship, not who he thinks his partner wants him to be.
Proudest moment in partnership
When JP was asked by a friend what she should do, he said, “ I have no idea. What does your heart tell you?”
After she replied he said, “You better respect your heart then.” And this meant the world to her.
She told him this provided a level of support for her that was amazing, instead of him trying to jump in and “fix” it for her.
What is the best partnership / relationship advice you have ever received?
Feel your own feelings that come up through our experience of our partner. And acknowledge our partner’s feelings.

Also, own your own projections. If you don’t your partner will likely resent the hell out of you.
