Listen: Evan, Assaf, Danny White discussed on Plan B Success
"And I want you to come out of you. I don't WanNa see your stories. I don't WanNa see you're in my book. The mosaic here. That the character that that shows this more than anything in the mirror maker Mo- walks through town to find a place that's open and all the stores are closed except the store and when he walks in the mirror maker reason and he and she says to him. I can see now that you can see what people can't see because nobody sees the store everybody just walks by visa. Don't see it but now that you're here my friend and I want you to look into the mirror and tell me what you do see. I see you have the ability to see what others don't see. What do you have the ability to see? And when he looks in the mirror he says all I see is the stories Assaf about myself. I don't see myself. I see my stories and she's hit go deeper. Don't hear your stories put your stories down. Look in the mirror can tell me what the mirror shows you because you're doesn't know your stories. That's the person I try and bring people the person that doesn't have all the stories of what they should be who they could be or what they would be if only they they could be. It's who they are and when people see that they feel invincible. Because that's so much more beautiful beautiful than anything they could ever make up about themselves and they have the power to walk into the world as themselves us doing what they came your do. And that's the beauty. I'll answer your question. I talked for absolutely. That's Eh. So how long have you been doing this this program and it's it's been I've been doing my whole life every step that that I walked on through. My whole life has geared towards this. But I've been working in mosaic from the last three years I religious formulated all the the different pieces of my life. I never left the monster even though I got married upstream among I still carry that that I was a monk for ten years ears and I sat in Meditation for Eight or twelve hours a day many days out of the year and there is a sense that comes when you are quiet the most beautiful relationship you can have is the one with with your soul with your God with your with. Swiftly Universe rested exists. And when you quiet out all that other noise the exquisite -ness of the relationship quiet so extraordinary and so. I've meditated now for forty five years every single day. Not a twelve hours anymore. Unfortunately fortunately because I don't have the space to that but at least an hour to every day for forty five years. I've meditated to hold you do this. I'm sorry good. Can you show no I was. I wake up early in the morning before. People's thoughts are active and it doesn't matter what time of day begins. I wake up at three thirty thirty four o'clock every morning and the world's quiet and it helps to be quiet when the world's quiet. So how did you. How did you end up becoming coming among? I would've never thought I wanted to be among I we. My parents passed away. It passed away two years apart on the same day and I write about it in the mosaic. I asked the adults where my parents were and they told me they're in a place called heaven so I set out on a search to find Evan. And Having Heavens searched took me through the monastery through seminary where out one day away from being ordained rabbi took me through ten years of being a monkey in in a in. A monastery took me into corporations where people were were happiness is. This world was told to me that I would have if I only had the money of this world world because I thought. Where's where's this? Thanks for. Parents are everywhere. I went as beautiful as it was in as much as itself. Good it wasn't. It wasn't what I was looking for and so I left but the reason I went into the monastery dance your question indirectly as I thought if this won't take you haven't what will this is my time to sit with my God and I left. I still love it. It is is it is I find it so odd that I would write a book about connection when the only connection means anything to me is the connection with me vice and my source so you ten years in being among and you talked about eight to draw sellers of Eight or eight to ten hours of meditation. Then you look back at those ten years. What did you think you gained from those as you? Oh my God I found me the one thing. All my friends who had grown up in rich enrich homes and taken and in many of my friends are billionaires now because they they had the environment to grow up in billionaires and they would look in the they would say when when they would come to see me or I would come see them and Danny White. What are you doing wasting your time in a monastir? You have so much you can give people when you get out and start a business when you get out help. PEOPLE WANNA create products. Why don't you create systems? Why don't you do all the stuff and I looked at him and I said I I just don't feel that and they said we think you're wasting your life away you? It was really interesting reviews about two years one of my best friends from that time and I got together and we sat together and this time he didn't say what have you done with your life. Why waste he was extremely wealthy and I was extremely poor because I'd given up every opportunity to have all the things that I wanted to go for what I really wanted? He looked at me and he said Daniel this time of make fun of you all this this time. I thought you were wasting your time but what I wouldn't give you have now at what you have can't be bought with all the money that I have. You have a presence about you of a piece about you of a contentment about you. You have a kindness amount you. I've never had one day of my life all my money hasn't helped me on my fifth marriage like children. Eight me my business as good as it's doing I don't have any friends because all believes the people people people don't like the for me. They like me for my money like me for what they think. I'll give them. That isn't a life of happiness. Danny I've been successful in one dimension and unsuccessful and every other you've been successful in most dimensions and money will come to you. I'm sure we'll win the moments that's right and I said if it does it does it doesn't it doesn't there's no. Money is not the thing that guides might life so I walked away from the opportunity to run a billion dollar corporation. Because I didn't think it would bring me happiness. I didn't think it was my place. It wasn't my Evan so the thing that I would ask. Ask Your people to do whether they're in plan a or plan B of their life. Where is your happiness? I know where your money is but even your money you're chasing it nor you find it you you always want more than you have. It's a they say no matter. How rich rich you are? People want ten percent war. They think they'd be happy if only they had ten percent more. They get ten percent more and they don't they say I only want ten percent. So why are we chasing this elusive carrot. That we could never catch when the real happiness comes when no matter what you have you have nothing or everything thing. But you're still happy with who you are. I don't know if this makes sense to you. But the monastery taught me to understand and the power of the presence within me understand this. This world out here is beautiful. It looks it's just a beautiful thing that looks beautiful. You mentioned that you know obviously you you gain the While you were a monk but you found out that was not your heaven so what really prompted your shift from being among getting into corporate America. I met A. I'm a woman. I went away on a trip to lead a pilgrimage and while I was away a friend of mine I thought was a friend of mine came at as she was a friend of mine ended up becoming my wife. She said while you're she picked me up at the airport and she said while you were away I moved you out of the monastery into my house and so so what happened is I went from being a monk. To be an householder and in the ways of the household the householder now has to make some money and so I went into the world of making money and I worked with a company. That was a self help who is a May a big publisher. The mark of the major. It was million dollar company when I came there and I left as it was when I left it was doing one hundred million dollars a year in sales and I was director of Business Development Sir so I wasn't responsible for that but I was a big part of that athlete but it was the team of us again. We were very ordinary people all wet skills but we weren't extraordinary and in any way none of us were all of us at big big big areas of big blind spots but when the our ordinariness during this came together with other ordinaries we created something. There was a magic that something extraordinary happened and that was that was great but then I looked at I said holded to every one of these people that were publishing. Maybe not everyone but almost everyone has a different persona. Oh when they're in front of people bowling when they're not trying to people and I was the one they came to talk to about who they were when they went when they didn't have to be the world's salt database right and I didn't WanNa live that way I didn't WanNa live a persona outside that I couldn't contain inside. I wanted to be in complete the harmony with who I was inside and outside being the same and I'm I'm a very open person you'll see in the more we get to know each other issues. There is no difference who I am on this show who I am when you're sitting in my house with me when we're walking on the street when we're talking to a person because what this world needs Rajiv is kindness. It needs people that hold the space for other people to empty all the stuff that aims them all the stuff that else all the stuff to make some other not good enough and they can't do it they need people hold that Mosaic Characters called."
