    Seeking Balance: Finding Purpose & Being Mindful

    Seeking Balance: Finding Purpose & Being Mindful

    What if you could change your mindset to improve your life?
    In this episode Tom and Sam Kabert dive into business, life, and spirituality (mindfulness) through the practice of SOUL/Life Balance. Sam spent 3 years completely overhauling his life after hitting rock bottom and experiencing a “Dark Night of the Soul” that ended up being a gift in disguise to realign him to his own truth. The old version of himself was vastly different as he was running a million-dollar business while working less than 4 hours a day and networking with the “Who’s Who” of Silicon Valley. Despite all of Sam’s ventures and business success and being recognized as one of Silicon Valley’s “40 Under 40” at just the age of 31 years old he soon recognized that something was missing. Sam realized that despite his success, he was unhappy. You will hear ways to bridge the gap between the way we conduct ourselves in business, mindful practices, and how we communicate with everyone, especially oneself.
    Take the first step in mindful practice with this episode.
     Key takeaways:

    Ways to bring mindfulness into your daily practice

    How to understand yin and yang

    Lessons in taking your power back

    Finding your dharma

    The benefits of micro dosing and when you should try ayahuasca

     
    Quotes:
    “I don’t believe that our purpose is this grandiose thing. I think that it could be as simple as just enjoying this experience of being a human and the highs and lows that come with it.” – Sam Kabert
    “It doesn’t have to be a checklist. Like, ‘I did a gratitude practice, I did meditation, I did x, y, z,’ and you start to stress yourself out. It’s counterintuitive to check those boxes.” – Sam Kabert
    “The idea of meditating hasn’t been fully adopted, or even close to being adopted as, ‘this is actually good for you.’” – Tom Feher
    “If we’re not filling our own cup first and taking care of ourselves, it’s just adding more chaos to an already chaotic world.” – Sam Kabert
