    (Timestamps & Gold Gems)

    [09:51 - 10:34] Erwin McManus ⭐Gold GemWhat really struck me was the one thing that humans can do that no other species can do is humans can materialize the invisible human beings can actually have an idea and translate that idea into reality. And one of the things we talked about at the Summit of Greatness was that humans create futures in the same way that silkworms create silk. And beavers naturally intrinsically create dams and ants create colonies, and bees create beehives and honey, humans create futures. But it's so intrinsic to who we are that we do not realize that's our unique contribution to all the species on the planet.

    [13:05 - 13:46] Erwin McManus ⭐Gold Gem  I'm absolutely convinced that if you want to find proof of God, look at human nature. Human beings were created to dream, and to imagine, and to create. It's one of the things I love telling people is, look, you were born in the imagination of God. God imagined you before you existed. In that sense, God dreamed about you before you ever had your first dream. And but you were, imagined to imagine, and you were created to create. And that every human being is both a work of art and an artist at work. And I just love the fact that the best reflection of the image of God is when a human being creates good in the world.

    Topic: The 7 Frequencies of Communication[23:07 - 24:01] Erwin McManus ⭐Gold Gem  
    I'm just gonna lay 'em out real quick. There's a frequency called MOTIVATOR, which inspires and encourages. There's a frequency called CHALLENGER that calls people out and calls people up. There's a frequency called COMMANDER that tells people what to do and takes authority and control. There's a frequency called HEALER that sees everyone as broken and they want to bring healing and care. There's a frequency called the PROFESSOR. They think all that matters is the information and the facts, and all they want to do is create a transference of knowledge. There's a frequency called SEER, and they're vision casters. They're visionaries and they elevate the room by helping people see a different picture of the future, a bigger picture of their life and of the world. And then there's a frequency called the MAVEN, and a maven is a psychological mental disruptor. They change paradigms, they change the way you see reality. Those are the seven frequencies.

    Episode 132: Understand Your Past Triggers And Heal Your Future Self (w/ Dr. Nima Rahmany)

    Episode 132: Understand Your Past Triggers And Heal Your Future Self (w/ Dr. Nima Rahmany)Today on the show, we have Dr. Nima Rahmany. Dr. Nima is a retired chiropractor that went into working with healing, based on cognitive and somatic-based tools. Basically what Dr. Nima does is, he helps people break trauma bonds and heal trauma bonds, which we will talk about on the show.
    And he's talking about the connection between our fantasies of love, sex, and money and how we can heal those kinds of traumas and cure our past in order to create a better future. It was an amazing conversation, full value, and I would love for you guys to hear this. Before we do, I just want to ask you, if you love the show, please share it with someone that can benefit from this show. So thank you again and enjoy.

    Dr. Nima ⭐Gold Gem  
    Number one, I could make sure I can figure out, how did I get here? Number two, how do I make sure this never happens again? And if I can, and then if I can do number one and number two, can I potentially have a healthy relationship? The answer is yes. And if I can do these three, then number four, which is how do I teach other people how to not go through the exact same pathway that I did? So that's really the backstory of why I'm teaching it.
    Dr. Nima ⭐Gold Gem  Most of the time relationships are fantasies. They're in a fantasy, and what I discovered, is that's why every relationship I was having, I was divorced back in 2011, every relationship was failed, a failed relationship because I was entering them thinking that the other person is there to heal me from my insecurities and make me happy and all of our unresolved woundings from childhood are going to be saved by the other person. And that fails miserably when we enter that with the covert agreement that that's what's gonna happen, the relationship is doomed to fail. 
    Dr. Nima ⭐Gold GemNow there's an option here, you either project that past wounding onto the other person and say, “Why are you doing this to me”? Which, you both are gonna be doing this to one another.Or you learn the skills of understanding your wounding, your attachment distress responses, fight, flight, freeze, and fawn. This is what happens when you get into conflict. You fight, (poke), you flight (run), “I'm getting the hell outta here”. You freeze, which is you hide or you just shut down or you fawn, which means just fixing. Let's just fix, abandon yourself and fix.
    Dr. Nima ⭐Gold GemTrauma is stuck, stored energy in our system. If you take on the work of shifting that stored traumatic energy through the system, your partner that used to trigger all of those past stuff, all of a sudden they'll say the thing that won't evoke the same response in you. Option number one, the dynamic shifts and arising tide lift all boats and the relationship transforms.
    Dr. Nima ⭐Gold GemWhat I do is I work with people and get 'em to a place where they have an open heart and they can move on. What's the most loving thing for both parties to do? And sometimes the most loving thing is to move on. That's the question. The work is to get the person to a place where they can have a deep love for themselves. When you have a deep love for yourself, you won't tolerate being treated less than that. So a lot of people do move on and a lot of people, the relationship dynamic completely changes. And it's a work in progress. 
    Dr. Nima ⭐Gold GemWhy do we step over these red flags when it comes to love? When it comes to sex, and it comes to money? And the answer to that is "FANTASY". We have fa

How do we not stop in the face of adversity? What is the right mindset to have about these things?

    [5:57 - 6:22] Didi Medina ⭐Gold Gem  
    You'll think like most artists would define themselves as successful as an artist if it makes over a certain dollar or not. Which kind of brings us to a very simple point. It's like, you have to have the humility to accept that certain things are better than, “I'm making money than others”. And you cannot make certain things become the vehicle to the billion-dollar baby if it's not optimized for that.

    [9:40 - 10:52] Didi Medina ⭐Gold Gem  
    Everything that has a bigger reward tends to take longer and requires relatively more pain and adversity to overcome. You're not gonna get through that, to see the other side of your work unless you can keep yourself lonely-headed, and whatever works for you in that process is a blessing. 
    Some people find the gym to be a way to keep themselves grounded and patient and calm the process. And other people find affirmations to be, in some people, do a hybrid in both, and some people do yoga. I think whatever it is you choose to do, there's a bunch of different tools. 
    I think it's fair to assume that anything you pursue to do that has delayed returns, right? It's like I start work, I break ground today, I'm probably going, gonna see the fruits of my labor in a year plus from now.  In any sort of meaningful way and probably like in a substantial way, like even further down the line.
    You're gonna have to stomach a lot of like, patience and there are all these tools are very useful in calling yourself f**k down. Yeah. And just taking it, step by step

    [15:37 - 15:56] Didi Medina ⭐Gold Gem
    There's a whole like psychological paradox that explains that one with the Dunning-Kruger effect. It explains our confidence towards things, right? Like it's on a, it's an inverse belt curve. It's like when you know very little about something, you're very confident about it. As you learn more about it, you get very petrified about it, and as you become an expert and you're very confident and comfortable

    [16:43 - 17:58] Didi Medina ⭐Gold Gem  
    The way I usually like to reference it is like, people have to be both methodical and disciplined, right? It's if you're all disciplined, you can work really hard in the wrong direction. If you're all methodical, with no discipline, you can be a complete philosopher, right?
    And you need to have enough methodology to put your hard work to good use, which is not given. Working hard does not mean it's being ap

    [1:37 - 2:00] Sagi Shrieber ⭐Gold Gem
    It's a lot of budget to self-fund. This whole like social media thing, right? And I wouldn't be able to grow it in the direction that I want to. And again, it comes to the long-term vision cause when you have that long-term vision, you can actually do it. If you don't have that long-term vision, then you're stuck. You can chase your own tail. So one direction is to self-fund it, bootstrap it, work your way, build a business around your superpowers.
    [2:49 - 3:02] Sagi Shrieber ⭐Gold Gem
    If you don't have the long-term vision and all you want to do now is your gut feeling, which is I’m going to work on my art or on this new direction, which is not going to bring me money, probably around like the upcoming months or even years, then you're not doing the right thing.
    [3:15 - 3:31] Sagi Shrieber ⭐Gold Gem
    The other thing we just told him is there's another route. You can get investment, right? But that means you're putting all your focus right now, on finding an investor on meeting and pitching investors and getting some funds in to fund your operation, right? Like a startup like a lot of companies do, which is ok.
    [4:06 - 4:21] Sagi Shrieber ⭐Gold Gem
    I am a bootstrapper by heart. If I bring money in, it would be out of the pure necessity of bringing an investor in because it's a strategic move or I've figured out the product market fit and now you know I can grow. This is why you bring investment in, mostly.

Hurry, to the time machine. ,

A must of all business makers

I heard about Sagi from a group of entrepreneurs that had made their mark on the business world. I heard him speak and then got linked up to his podcast. If you are starting a business, in a rut, or are looking for outside the box thinking and motivation, THIS IS THE ONE.
