[13.05] Navigating Life and Snapback Energy

  • My ex-husband’s aspiration was to start a company, and I wholeheartedly supported him in this endeavor.
  • I developed a product that eventually transformed into what we now know as Snapback energy.
  • Life often presents us with formidable challenges, and it’s in these moments that we all require assistance.
  • Striving for balance in life is essential. How can I prioritize self-support and fully embody that equilibrium?
  • Snapback energy represents an awareness of the way you lead your life.
  • It’s the small yet pivotal moments of beautiful defeat and breakdown that have propelled me towards a transformative shift.
  • The Vedas, an ancient body of knowledge dating back 5000 years, hold profound wisdom.
  • We are in a perpetual state of evolution, and Ayurveda serves as the science of life, guiding us on this journey.
  • I summoned the courage to lean in despite my initial fear.

[19.41] Exploring Banking

  • My experience in the banking sector was highly constructive; it provided a structured and secure environment.
  • Within the realm of banking, I had a clear understanding of what to expect, and I had the support of my professional network.
  • As Deepak Chopra wisely noted, I realized that I had been sleepwalking through life.
  • It became evident that I was engaging in activities that failed to ignite my inner passion.
  • Externally, I presented myself as a picture of perfection, but internally, I felt disconnected from my true self.
  • I found myself becoming increasingly ensnared in my physical body, losing touch with my essential being.
  • The stress I encountered within my work began to manifest physically, as I began to internalize it.

[26.42] Embracing Fun and Fulfillment

  • When you find yourself experiencing a sense of lack or struggling to see your true reflection in the mirror, it’s essential to assess what truly fulfills you in life.
  • Identify what ignites your passion and sets your soul ablaze.
  • Embrace the concept of FLY: First, love yourself.
  • If you’re living solely for weekends and vacation time, waiting for those moments, it’s time to reconsider your approach to life.
  • It became clear that I was losing control, and the more I tried to grasp tightly, the worse the situation became. Eventually, I found liberation in letting go.
  • My discomfort became a catalyst for change.
  • Surrendering control to faith, hope, and something beyond oneself is a profoundly liberating experience.
  • My two fundamental aspirations are to leave the world in a better state than I found it and to leave people better off than when I first encountered them.

[32.36] Ayurveda Wellness

  • I attended Deepak Chopra’s retreat, which led me to a profound realization that I entered this world alone and will depart in the same manner.
  • This revelation brought the understanding that I possess the capacity to fulfill all my needs within myself.
  • The essence of self-sufficiency: You have everything you require within your own being.
  • I had previously read the book “Untethered Soul,” and upon my return, I revisited it. The book’s wisdom resonated deeply with me.
  • It’s crucial to recognize that while knowledge is acquired, wisdom is an inherent aspect of all individuals, representing what we intuitively understand.
  • The wisdom that welled up within me felt akin to a gushing fountain, overflowing with insight.
  • Ayurveda delves into various aspects of our daily lives, encompassing how we breathe, what we eat, and how we sleep.

[44.06] Cultivating Inner Peace

  • True peace begins from the inside and radiates outwards.
  • My simple request is for you to pause and ask yourself, “How do I feel in this moment?”
  • This isn’t a call for everyone to immediately adopt meditation. It merely entails taking a moment to sit with yourself.
  • Take a moment to contemplate your thoughts, actions, and the current state of your life.
  • By tuning into your inner self, you can gain insights into how things are progressing and, most importantly, where you may need to take action.
  • I encourage you to be your own source of support and fulfillment.
  • Reflect on what it would take for you to feel whole and content.
  • Remember, peace is not something you seek externally; it’s a journey within.
  • Each morning, as you awaken, take a moment to express gratitude for the gift of a new day.

What’s your most fervent desire?

I want to travel around the world. I want to see and do it all. I want to see everything.
