Next Post: #WordOfTheDay: Magniloquent
So .. .earlier this week I was listening to what’s called an Inner Circle Audio. It’s basically something to help you develop not only as a person but, you know, as an entrepreneur and as someone who can be a positive influence on the world.
Well, one of the things it talked about in that audio is: “What are your non negotiables?”
One of the non negotiables I decided to do for myself is to learn something new every day.
Now, recently I’ve been watching TED videos and you know that is a great and easy way to do that, get that 20 minutes in a day of listening to a good audio – something that interests me, something that I’m PASSIONATE about … and so TODAY I watched a video called “My Stroke of Insight” from the “Brave Neuro World” Netflix playlist by Jill Bolte Taylor.
And this 16-17 minute video? … It’s very hard to explain what I went through listening to the story of this woman who with clarity and insight and … just … BRILLIANCE …
She was able to not only tell you her background of being a neuro anatomist, but how she was able to study he rbrain from the inside out when she had a stroke. And what she experienced. And it – it really hit home for me.
It was a LITTLE emotional, so I WILL WARN you of this, but …
It was emotional for me because I experience a life threatening situation and do not remember what happened after I lost consciousness…
And I hear stories like hers … but her explanation was just so touching and so moving and it’s something that I’ve been looking for for a while.
Y’know, I’ve got life mentors – life coaches – y’know people in my life that I look up to in so many different ways … How they talk about how you should be MEDITATING and I’ve heard that meditation can lead some people into states or feelings of nirvana, and Jill – in a moving demonstration and less than 20 minute speech gives you an idea of how your brain works, and the hope and knowledge that you can achieve a similar state without actually being in a life threatening situation.
So, I’m going to provide the link for you here as a YouTube embedded video for your reference and so you can watch it when you have the time …
But I also wanted to provide you with a funny, quick little YouTube video of Bo Burnham who did a really great audio / song that I absolutely just love and it totally fits, so …
Below you’ll find the 2 videos that I’ve just referred to.
Where do you find your bliss?
Have you found that state of mind wherein you feel like you’re in Nirvana?
If not and you’re interested, what does you path to enlightenment look like?

To Your Success!
