Raul: Well, hello. Didn’t see you there. What up, guys? Five second rule. The crash. [inaudible 00:00:06] Success and happiness. Interesting video here. I’m going to talk about a book. Raul here from Capital Wise, by the way. Reporting live from Atlanta, Georgia. Really Miami, Florida, but it’s what [inaudible 00:00:34] say. I read this book recently, called The Power of Now, by Eckhart Tolle or Eckhart Tolle. People have mentioned it different ways. And it’s a really interesting introspective book, that I think can open up a lot of peoples’ minds to what being present is, what being happy is, what being fulfilled is, all this kind of stuff.
He talks a lot about being present. That’s like, obviously, the … The majority of the book is the power of now. Why, right now, this very moment, as you’re sitting in your chair, driving in your car, as I’m standing here, looking at this lens with no one else in the background but Robert, that is the only moment that we have in our lives right now. The future and the past is all kind of subjective. It doesn’t really mean much. What means much is right now.
I know it’s sounds really weird, like, “What the heck are you talking about, man?” If you think about it, the more that you’re in tune with what is going on you, right now, meaning your breaths, what you’re feeling, your body, if you’re hungry, how you feeling, all this stuff. The more present you are, and the more you can accept things and the happier you will be. Because you’re not allowing your mind to kind of grab your attention and be like, oh, but we got to do this, this, and this. We have to do this and that. Oh, man. I shouldn’t have done this yesterday. I shouldn’t have eaten that.
Shh. Shh. Shh. Shut your mouth, man. Just focus on right now. It’s all that matters. Everything that’s happening, this very moment, is supposed to be happening. Whether it’s God, or some crazy other being, or the universe. That’s not the point. The point is that, you being here, it’s you here. That’s the simplest way I can put the book. The book is like, I don’t know, like 1,000 pages or something. No, it’s not. It’s maybe 600 pages. I listened to an audiobook, so I don’t know how many pages.
But that’s the simplest way I can put it. Just be in tune with yourself. Try not to let your mind go crazy. Try to, every once in a while, just close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, and just stop thinking so much. Your mind is a tool for you to use in your daily life. It’s not you. Your mind is not you. So, I really suggest you read the book or listen to an audiobook. Or, I don’t know, maybe watch YouTube videos about Eckhart Tolle and The Power of Now.
Really cool. It’s definitely a game-changer, and it helps you make decisions better. It helps you see life a little bit slower. So, it’s really cool. I would highly recommend it. Keep reading. Read, do cool shit, make money, and I don’t know what else people are doing nowadays. But do it. All right, guys, subscribe below. Peace.
