Show Notes

I’ve been spending the last few weeks of summer at the beach in Halkidiki and have made a daily ritual of swimming in the ocean each morning. While the water here is typically known to be gentle and serene, it recently has been much more turbulent and unsettled. I’ve had to adjust my swimming technique to navigate the rocky waves and trust in my body to adapt to the tumultuous conditions. 

This experience reminded me of a lesson that is true of many things in life - the journey is more enjoyable when you can freely flow with the waves that come your way. Diving into this thought more and some of the philosophical musings I’ve been pondering from my time at the beach.

130: I Want to Be a Mystic When I Grow Up

For the last 2 to 3 months I’ve been pondering the concept of mystics and the idea of mysticism. To me, a mystic is someone that is placing the mystery of life at the center of their being. As someone who has lived so pragmatically for many years of my life, I found this concept to be wildly exciting, adventurous, and beautiful. I previously lived my life in a way that had so many steps and routines, it was working against me - hindering me from moving forward in the ways I wanted to. So now, I'm embracing a more mystical approach to experience a more expensive reality. In this episode, I talk about the dangers of living too practically, why flexibility and living in the here and now is so important, and striking a balance between these two concepts.   Shownotes: https://steliefti.com/ep130 Connect with me: https://steliefti.com  https://twitter.com/steli  https://www.linkedin.com/in/steliefti/  ...

021: The only asset worth investing in during this crisis

Many friends and fellow entrepreneurs come to me for investment advice during this crisis. The first thing you need to understand is that I'm not an investor. So don't put too much stock into my advice. That being said—I do have strong opinions. There are a lot of attractive opportunities out there nowadays: gold, cryptocurrencies, foreign currencies, certain stocks that took a dive due to the crisis but will almost certainly come back strong once things get better. I believe for most of the people that are going to read this, there's really only one thing you should invest in right now: You yourself. Unless you yourself are a skilled investor, I don't think that you should make big investment decisions during this crisis in anything other than yourself. How can you invest in yourself, and grow? Maybe this is the time to build a side business. Write that book, and promote it. Experiment. Learn something new. Stretch yourself beyond what your current limitations. Level one area of your live up. If you already had a side business, start investing into ads, make the design look real slick, sharpen your copy, ramp up your marketing, improve your product, sharpen your skills by signing up for a course or finding a coach. But invest into something that's actually yours, and that doesn't rely on a currency moving one way or another, or a big multinational corporation hitting certain revenue numbers... invest into yourself. It'll not only save you a lot of anxiety when things don't go the way you expect them, but also sharpen your focus on the things that really matter: those things that you can actually impact yourself. As always—I'd love to hear from you. Hit me up ...
