The Spartan mind strength podcast the
podcast for mental grit and resilience

0:00:15.590,0:00:20.900
hosted by Vie Binga and Tim Ganley --

0:00:24.870,0:00:31.330
hello everyone this is Tim -- and this is Vie and we welcome you to another episode of

0:00:31.330,0:00:35.830
the Spartan mind strength podcast -- today
we're gonna be talking a little bit

0:00:35.830,0:00:42.489
about business -- the holistic aspect of
business that is -- so we'll be right back

0:00:42.489,0:00:52.119
-- stay tuned

0:00:52.260,0:00:59.320
-- today's episode is brought to you by the
side of the road we lost power up on the

0:00:59.320,0:01:03.610
mountain so we had to come down the road
and we're actually parked on the side of

0:01:03.610,0:01:08.500
the road where the everything's working
and we're doing everything from here -- one

0:01:08.500,0:01:14.050
of the pluses or minuses depends which
way you look at it of living on the

0:01:14.050,0:01:19.710
mountain -- so if you hear some cars going
by that's because that's where we are

0:01:19.710,0:01:26.500
we've been going to oh actually first
before we get into this I just like to

0:01:26.500,0:01:30.520
talk a little bit about we're going to
be shifting our focus a little bit

0:01:30.520,0:01:37.450
instead of doing like 30 plus minutes
-- podcast -- we're gonna try to stick around

0:01:37.450,0:01:43.479
the 20 minute mark today will be about
20-ish minutes we're gonna try to make

0:01:43.479,0:01:48.310
it 20 minutes it might be more but we're
going for the 20 minute mark -- so please

0:01:48.310,0:01:53.520
let us know if you prefer shorter ones
or not in the comment section below

0:01:53.520,0:02:00.039
-- today we're gonna talk about business
-- the holistic aspect of business -- we've

0:02:00.039,0:02:06.580
been going to meetings with yoga
teachers yoga studios Reiki masters heal

0:02:06.580,0:02:13.690
therapeutic touch I don't even know how
many different things -- modalities -- yep and over the last 20

0:02:13.690,0:02:21.430
years -- yeah -- and we've always seem to run
into basically three types of

0:02:21.430,0:02:23.650
individuals at every one of these
meetings

0:02:23.650,0:02:28.440
now there's categories in those three
types of people there's different

0:02:28.440,0:02:33.340
-- levels --  different levels but they're usually we
can put them into three different types

0:02:33.340,0:02:41.920
so the first one is  --  the first one is the
practitioner who who loves the concept

0:02:41.920,0:02:50.650
of energy fully understand it they are
always giving giving giving but they

0:02:50.650,0:03:00.430
seem to have a disconnect in their mind
between energy and wealth or money they

0:03:00.430,0:03:09.450
somehow feel that receiving money in
exchange or some form of wealth is

0:03:09.450,0:03:16.900
actually a negative thing they they feel
that they are not deserving of that that

0:03:16.900,0:03:22.540
they should only give -- and they end up
usually most of the time they end up

0:03:22.540,0:03:27.130
leaving what they were working on what
they were doing -- exactly because you

0:03:27.130,0:03:33.790
cannot sustain yourself if you are not
receiving in return for your services

0:03:33.790,0:03:40.630
-- and you also see them as as they go more
and more along time goes by they become

0:03:40.630,0:03:47.500
more and more angry -- yes because it's the
disappointment is you you actually start

0:03:47.500,0:03:54.310
to believe that what you are working on
is not is not good enough so they

0:03:54.310,0:04:01.810
start doubting either their discipline
or themselves or society that's why we

0:04:01.810,0:04:08.800
said there are three main categories but
every category has different more

0:04:08.800,0:04:17.470
particular types or levels in there so
this the practitioners in the first

0:04:17.470,0:04:25.870
category who have the disconnect between
energy and wealth end up exactly

0:04:25.870,0:04:31.539
discouraged because of different reasons
-- and we've seen those in the yoga

0:04:31.539,0:04:38.020
teachers -- yes -- as not feeling that they are
good enough to teach -- yes -- I remember one

0:04:38.020,0:04:43.930
guy a long time ago he was always saying
that he didn't care if only one person

0:04:43.930,0:04:53.650
came to his class  --  yeah I think he said he actually preferred that right -- because that he can then teach that one person more but then

0:04:53.650,0:04:59.830
he quit he couldn't keep a class at
studios because he only did bring in one

0:04:59.830,0:05:06.240
person and sometimes zero so he ended up
dropping out he had that belief that

0:05:06.240,0:05:12.000
one was good enough -- exactly -- instead of
helping you know 30 40 people at a shot

0:05:12.000,0:05:16.919
he thought one was good enough and even
that one usually ended up dropping out

0:05:16.919,0:05:25.979
-- exactly and then what a lot of those
teachers do not understand is actually

0:05:25.979,0:05:31.400
it's probably because they haven't
studied enough is that those practices

0:05:31.400,0:05:42.360
yoga Ayurveda Vedic Astrology meditation
Tantra all that were were taught in a

0:05:42.360,0:05:48.840
very exclusive way and you had to pay
your teacher if you were lucky enough to

0:05:48.840,0:05:55.759
get a teacher you had to pay them very
very well -- actually what Krishnamacharya

0:05:55.759,0:06:02.849
-- yeah -- he was paid by the Prince -- the
Prince of Mysore so those those

0:06:02.849,0:06:11.280
modalities the the energy world was
kept for the very wealthy so it was

0:06:11.280,0:06:20.310
worth a lot of money or other ways -- and
let's just talk a little bit about what

0:06:20.310,0:06:28.130
do you consider the word wealth to mean --
wealth is not only money money is

0:06:28.130,0:06:34.080
significant in today's society -- yes --
money because in the old days there

0:06:34.080,0:06:40.860
wasn't really money and that's a whole
different podcast but in today's society

0:06:40.860,0:06:48.409
money is a big part of wealth but wealth
comes in other ways the the common

0:06:48.409,0:06:55.320
characteristic of all aspects of wealth
is that they help you have a rich

0:06:55.320,0:07:01.710
experience and I know you have heard us
talk about the term experience a lot

0:07:01.710,0:07:06.090
it's the rich experience the
moment-to-moment experience being

0:07:06.090,0:07:13.560
surrounded by people you enjoy being --
and I want to bring in real quick is we

0:07:13.560,0:07:18.810
had one of our old studios did very well
in the money aspect -- yes -- but we

0:07:18.810,0:07:24.240
were working almost 24 hours a day it
seemed like both of us were constantly

0:07:24.240,0:07:33.000
having to be there so I consider that a
failure in the wealth area because we

0:07:33.000,0:07:37.440
didn't have a life we were making great
money but we had no life -- exactly -- what

0:07:37.440,0:07:43.290
what else is there besides being able to
you know see wealth and money and also

0:07:43.290,0:07:49.680
time you're saying people -- people yeah
people being surrounded for the most

0:07:49.680,0:07:58.560
part by people who share your meanings
because it's all about how creative

0:07:58.560,0:08:04.710
having a creative meaningful life and we
talked about meaning I believe in the

0:08:04.710,0:08:16.410
last episode -- at least several of the last episodes -- yes so it's all about being in an environment who helps you actually

0:08:16.410,0:08:23.340
enjoy what you are giving meaning to
what it's a meaningful life what a

0:08:23.340,0:08:28.530
meaningful life is for you -- so again the
first person that we talked about really

0:08:28.530,0:08:34.289
they don't have the meaningfulness of
feeling -- worth it --

0:08:34.289,0:08:39.599
worthy -- worthy they have that disconnect in their
mind they believe what they do or who

0:08:39.599,0:08:45.270
they are what they offer is not
meaningful enough is not worthy enough

0:08:45.270,0:08:52.080
of wealth --  and those are usually the people
that it's it's almost it's a part-time

0:08:52.080,0:08:58.320
job -- yes -- and they don't put in their
effort to make it a full-time job and

0:08:58.320,0:09:01.740
they always consider it a part-time job
because they don't see the wealth coming

0:09:01.740,0:09:08.010
from it -- exactly exactly exactly that's it and
that's very unfortunate because they

0:09:08.010,0:09:13.260
have the greatest intentions there is
just a barrier in their mind and those

0:09:13.260,0:09:17.640
and those people literally should be
doing this full-time exactly they are

0:09:17.640,0:09:23.880
the people who are qualified to be doing
this full-time because of how much they

0:09:23.880,0:09:29.940
love it and all they need to really look
at is they need to go back to their

0:09:29.940,0:09:33.040
business plan
and a business plan doesn't mean you

0:09:33.040,0:09:37.780
have to write down this 30-60-90 page
thing a business plan actually for us

0:09:37.780,0:09:50.320
was on a - napkin right -- napkins from starbucks -- yes -- and we did a lot  -- when we were drinking starbucks -- so it didn't have to be it doesn't have to be something huge -- no --  it

0:09:50.320,0:09:55.600
just has to be something in writing so
that you can literally go back and look

0:09:55.600,0:10:00.310
at it -- yeah -- and all they need to really
do is start working on their business

0:10:00.310,0:10:06.730
plan and see where the holes are -- exactly --
in that plan so that they can become -- exactly --

0:10:06.730,0:10:12.070
bigger -- instead of studying and studying
and studying more of their discipline

0:10:12.070,0:10:18.000
actually what they are lacking at that
time is -- other things -- the business

0:10:18.000,0:10:22.960
yes -- the business the marketing something besides I know so many people that just keep

0:10:22.960,0:10:28.600
studying yoga and wonder why -- yeah -- they can't
or keep studying massage or keep

0:10:28.600,0:10:34.150
studying something else and wonder why
they can't bring that in so if they

0:10:34.150,0:10:38.920
would start looking at something else
they'd be able to -- exactly exactly -- grow

0:10:38.920,0:10:43.750
grow their business to where
they are wealthy -- truly a business class

0:10:43.750,0:10:51.100
but a class a business class that fits
the holistic aspect of business a

0:10:51.100,0:10:55.270
conscious business class -- yes it's not
just about making money

0:10:55.270,0:11:01.900
-- no -- it's about doing more --- exactly -- we'll
be right back to talk about the next two

0:11:01.900,0:11:04.800
-- stay tuned --

0:11:29.640,0:11:34.750
from you

0:11:36.120,0:11:44.769
the next person or group is -- the people
who want who who actually are unethical

0:11:44.769,0:11:49.660
who are very selfish and want to keep
everything for themselves and they are

0:11:49.660,0:11:55.959
in this environment in this world for
the wrong reason -- and they're very

0:11:55.959,0:11:59.290
egotistic
-- oh very egotistical -- you know it's me me me me me

0:11:59.290,0:12:05.950
I I I -- yeah -- everything has to fit their schedule
has to fit their time -- yes -- they're not happy

0:12:05.950,0:12:11.260
with anything unless they're seen as the
greatest -- exactly and they are very easy

0:12:11.260,0:12:18.130
to actually recognize in -- if you're looking --
yeah if you're looking -- because they play it very well in

0:12:18.130,0:12:22.089
front of their students -- oh yes oh yeah -- but once
you start talking to them you can really

0:12:22.089,0:12:28.149
hear the I's -- yes -- involved in the
conversation -- yes -- and they're they're

0:12:28.149,0:12:33.070
literally the people that need to get
out of it -- exactly because actually they

0:12:33.070,0:12:41.800
do not respect the most valuable asset
of every human which is time -- they don't

0:12:41.800,0:12:45.610
expect they don't respect the other
people's time -- they don't respect the

0:12:45.610,0:12:53.350
other people's time and they they yeah
exactly -- so we're not gonna

0:12:53.350,0:12:59.020
really talk a lot about them except that
that type of person shouldn't be doing

0:12:59.020,0:13:03.190
this they're the ones that hurt it for
everyone else they're the ones usually

0:13:03.190,0:13:07.750
that are seeing the most -- yes -- and are the
loudest -- yes --

0:13:07.750,0:13:13.570
so everyone believes that they're the
most Wow but usually  -- the most important  --  yes and

0:13:13.570,0:13:20.440
they're only important in their minds
-- actually I consider them and now that is

0:13:20.440,0:13:27.279
my opinion but I'm gonna say it because
that's our podcast I consider them the

0:13:27.279,0:13:35.320
reason that the energy world has a bad
reputation or a bad name because there

0:13:35.320,0:13:40.449
is no substance there actually there is
a lot of negativity and -- and the

0:13:40.449,0:13:44.020
information they give is
completely -- because they don't care to

0:13:44.020,0:13:47.450
study they are
completely uneducated so they they are

0:13:47.450,0:13:53.420
fake -- yep -- is that subtle enough -- and I'll agree
with you completely so it is our podcast

0:13:53.420,0:13:59.029
so we're allowed to have that opinion
-- yeah -- the third one and the final one -- the

0:13:59.029,0:14:06.260
third category are the the fully
professional individuals in this world

0:14:06.260,0:14:14.269
who actually care enough to study they
know their discipline and also they have

0:14:14.269,0:14:21.440
fully understood that the meaning of
this human experience which is whatever

0:14:21.440,0:14:31.040
you do whatever you offer you are also
supposed to receive and they they just

0:14:31.040,0:14:35.029
put that into practice
-- yes they they do proper marketing they

0:14:35.029,0:14:40.640
do proper business they help people they
and that's one of the things is a lot of

0:14:40.640,0:14:45.380
people say well money is bad well if
you're not making any money you can't

0:14:45.380,0:14:51.350
help anyone
somehow you somehow somehow you have to

0:14:51.350,0:14:56.750
get a roof over your head and food on
the table no matter how long you believe

0:14:56.750,0:15:03.769
in fasting for you still need to eat
-- yes so you you brought up fasting -- yes --

0:15:03.769,0:15:08.779
and that comes from -- that comes from
Siddhartha -- and Siddhartha and this is

0:15:08.779,0:15:14.510
we've actually taken this into our
business concept -- yes exactly and Siddhartha said I

0:15:14.510,0:15:24.019
can think I can fast I can wait -- so what
do you mean by I can think -- I can think

0:15:24.019,0:15:33.949
means I can always find a way that works
the best for my community whether that's

0:15:33.949,0:15:44.000
my colleagues my clients my students and
myself I can always come up with the

0:15:44.000,0:15:50.760
best option for everyone
it's there is no black and

0:15:50.760,0:15:57.020
white I can find a way to make that
happen if that's what I give meaning to

0:15:57.020,0:16:07.050
-- excellent -- and what is fast -- fast means I
can go through times when the money and

0:16:07.050,0:16:12.000
the wealth may not seem to be there I
-- so you're studying more -- exactly I am

0:16:12.000,0:16:18.390
studying more I it's not all the time
constant I can go through rough times

0:16:18.390,0:16:26.040
all through fasting times because I am
working on something it's part of my

0:16:26.040,0:16:33.450
where I give meaning to and that's why
also humans are meant to literally be

0:16:33.450,0:16:39.710
able to fast in terms of food now
fasting in that sense means not

0:16:39.710,0:16:46.860
purchasing certain things not living a
certain lifestyle -- and the last is -- I can

0:16:46.860,0:16:53.570
wait -- and what's that mean -- waiting means
that things don't have to happen

0:16:53.570,0:17:00.420
instantly the results don't have to show
in a way I understand them right here

0:17:00.420,0:17:06.780
right now when we do something the
money or the wealth may not come

0:17:06.780,0:17:12.210
necessarily back to us from that direct
source we are doing something we expect

0:17:12.210,0:17:18.960
somebody to pay us well it's all energy
so that money or that wealth may come a

0:17:18.960,0:17:24.330
year or two later from a completely
different source that we may have never

0:17:24.330,0:17:32.850
imagined energy travels in every way
it's not it's not direct give and take

0:17:32.850,0:17:38.220
immediate right here right now that's
what the wait means we don't always

0:17:38.220,0:17:42.780
know everything we shouldn't just assume
we know everything there is not an

0:17:42.780,0:17:47.850
explanation for everything all the time
even though I am a math person I still
