Spirituality Information - John Harricharan's Interview With Yanik Silver (Q8)
Yanik Silver: All right very good. I got one last question maybe two. “How about achieving balance between these three subjects that we've been talking about mind, body, spirit, money, health, relationships what are some of your thoughts on that, this is obviously if one is out of whack then our entire lives become out of whack if we're only focused on money then relationships might suffer and health suffers and you've seen that I'm sure and it's… John Harricharan: Yeah. Yanik Silver: It’s not good. John Harricharan: Yes. The three problems are like the three -- the equal three sides of a triangle, an isosceles triangle.
And if you pull one side the other sides will change. And so the most important thing is instead of saying there are only three problems money, health and relationship. I could redefine that to say there is only one problem, the problem of balance. And the way we keep that going is by being grounded in some habits. For example, we talked about their habit of being grateful.
If we start -- that if we do that even through our worse moments during the day but at least once a day and this is habit I've had for years. Yeah, when I put it away things didn't look that good when I remember to do it they started looking differently. And you start feeling grateful and you start feeling more alive. It's a feeling. It's our feeling. We can make ourselves feel whatever way we want by thinking ourselves into it. And that's not a pollayany thing. I can think myself into being scared of something or being excited about. We all have that ability to do it. So what I would say to maintain balance is we've got a work with these principals of slowing down the conversation, speeding, getting sources of inspiration, which is a whole big lecture I gave once about how you do that, and staying inspired, enthusiastic, and grateful all the time.
And then, nothing, no thing will ever be able to touch you. Yanik Silver: Okay. Very good. John, are you still there. John Harricharan: Yeah. Yanik Silver: Okay. John Harricharan: Yeah. Yanik Silver: Last question in for you. We talked about hitting rock bottom. Do you feel like people have to go this -- to the rock bottom, to the deep dark levels before they can appreciate all that things that they didn't have before.
And they can get it back or is there someway that we can learn from others that that have gone there before us? John Harricharan: Yes. Yeah. No, we don't have to go there. Actually, we don’t even have to get anywhere near there. The only reason that I did I've also been this kid who grew up testing boundaries and being creative with how I did things and going to the edge of things. I'm the guy who was almost gaud by whilde buffalos in Africa almost ran over by elephants in India, almost attacked by gorillas in another part of Africa.
