the newest pageturners you need to read to heal all aspects of your life have just landed
[Spending two months at an ashram in India] helped connect two things I love – working with entrepreneurs and yogic philosophy. I saw a synergy between the path of the yogi and the entrepreneur – both have to undergo hardship, have laser-like focus, surrender, accept change and give up extraneous distractions.
HOW CAN HUSTLERS FIND THEIR WAY TO THE ‘GOOD’ PATH?
Stop and listen. Slow down. When we’re young we often know the group we’re called to serve, but we let the interests of our parents, teachers and ‘adulting’ sway us away from that. Recognise the feeling when you’re drawn to something and want to stay in that space forever. Then, like all good businesses, you need to follow certain steps – can you articulate the solution you have to a problem, is there a sufficiently big market, and will it pay an amount that leaves enough profit?
HOW DO YOU MAKE SURE YOU STAY ON PURPOSE?
My work is a result of having the uncomfortable feeling that I wasn’t doing what I should be. It caused me suffering but also made me curious. Now, I begin each day with my mind turned towards my mission to serve others. My neural pathway sounds a gentle internal alarm when I’m about to run after something shiny or wallow in judgment. Spoiler: there’s no silver bullet! There’s just consistent daily work that, with time, becomes a joy.
