Life is hard. But it’s also full of beauty and love and happiness. You get to choose which side of life you focus on. You can choose to dwell on the negative aspects, or you can choose to focus on the positive. And that choice is the key to an empowered life.
In this episode, Jamal Jivanjee joins Matt O’Neill to talk about the root causes of human suffering. They talk about how you can overcome these struggles and live life to its fullest.
Here are some power takeaways from today’s conversation:
Empowering someone requires a shift in perspective. We can control our inner state of being and how we respond to certain things.
[06:06] Living in the Moment
We often feel like we’re running out of time, which can lead to anxiety. But the truth is, all you have is time. Stay present in the moment. Stop trying to hang onto the past.
We give money value. Economy is an exchange of energy. While there might be fluctuations in that exchange, nothing is lost. All we have is everything.
Success requires total involvement. If your desires, actions, and values are fully aligned, it becomes easy. As long as you’re totally involved, you’ll get to where you want to be.
People are inherently good. But when our core needs aren’t met, it creates trauma. Some behaviors that come from trauma are evil. But if you dig deep into the trauma, there’s healing. If we can control how we respond to life, we can end these cycles.
