magic
01:03
Barclay.
01:04
And
01:04
today,
01:05
Eric
01:06
Plz
01:06
joins
01:07
us
01:07
again.
01:08
Now
01:08
in
01:08
episode
01:09
1
01:09
35,
01:10
we
01:11
of
01:11
course
01:11
discovered
01:12
his
01:12
answers
01:13
to
01:13
the
01:14
questions
01:14
that
01:14
I
01:15
always
01:15
ask,
01:16
but
01:16
he
01:16
talked
01:16
about
01:17
how
01:18
we
01:18
can
01:19
start
01:19
building
01:20
our
01:20
enthusiastic
01:21
life.
01:22
Welcome
01:22
back,
01:23  Eric Teplitz
Eric.
01:25
I'm
01:25
glad
01:25
to
01:25
be
01:25
back.
01:26
Thank
01:26
you.
01:26
Magic.
01:27  Magic Barclay
My
01:27
pleasure
01:28
to
01:28
have
01:28
you
01:28
here
01:29
again.
01:30
Now
01:30
we
01:30
touched
01:31
on,
01:32
you
01:32
know,
01:33
shutting
01:33
out
01:34
things
01:34
around
01:35
us
01:35
that
01:35
don't
01:36
serve
01:36
us.
01:36
We
01:36
touched
01:37
on
01:38
the
01:39
power
01:39
of
01:39
our
01:40
mind
01:40
and
01:40
our
01:40
soul,
01:41
and
01:42
really
01:42
connecting
01:43
with
01:44
nature
01:44
and
01:45
connecting
01:45
with
01:45
ourselves.
01:46
And
01:46
I
01:46
think
01:47
maybe
01:47
this
01:47
is
01:47
something
01:48
we
01:48
need
01:48
to
01:48
explore
01:49
more.
01:50
But
01:51
we
01:51
also
01:52
mentioned
01:52
the
01:53
freebie
01:53
that
01:53
you
01:54
offered,
01:55
and
01:55
that
01:55
was
01:56
a
01:56
preview
01:56
of
01:56
your
01:57
online
01:57
course.
01:58
Can
01:58
you
01:58
tell
01:58
us
01:58
a
01:58
little
01:59
bit
01:59
more
01:59
about
02:00
what
02:00
that
02:00
is?
02:01  Eric Teplitz
Sure.
02:02
The
02:02
online
02:02
course
02:03
that
02:03
you're
02:03
referring
02:04
to
02:04
is
02:04
called
02:04
opening
02:05
to
02:05
greater
02:06
possibilities,
02:07
and
02:08
this
02:08
project
02:09
was
02:09
a
02:09
true
02:09
labor
02:10
of
02:10
love
02:10
for
02:11
me.
02:12
I
02:12
would
02:12
say
02:13
that
02:14
though,
02:14
I
02:14
wasn't
02:15
necessarily
02:16
consciously.
02:17
Thinking
02:18
about
02:18
it
02:18
this
02:18
way.
02:18
When
02:18
I
02:19
first
02:19
started
02:19
creating
02:20
it,
02:21
it's
02:22
basically
02:22
the
02:23
culmination
02:24
of
02:25
whatever
02:26
wisdom
02:26
I've
02:27
attained
02:27
thus
02:28
far.
02:28
And
02:28
this
02:28
is
02:29
I'm
02:29
gonna
02:29
turn
02:29
50
02:30
this
02:30
year.
02:31
And
02:32
I
02:32
think
02:32
that
02:32
I
02:32
was
02:33
perhaps
02:33
imagining.
02:36
Creating
02:36
this
02:37
course
02:37
for
02:38
my
02:38
20
02:39
safe
02:40
25
02:41
year
02:41
old
02:41
self
02:42
in
02:42
my
02:42
mid
02:43
twenties.
02:44
That
02:44
was
02:44
the
02:44
darkest
02:45
time
02:46
of
02:46
my
02:47
adult
02:47
life
02:48
thus
02:48
far.
02:50
And
02:51
it
02:51
was
02:52
an
02:52
extremely
02:53
difficult
02:54
lonely,
02:55
and
02:56
in
02:56
a
02:56
lot
02:57
of
02:57
ways,
02:57
hope,
02:58
you
02:58
know,
02:58
hopeless
02:59
time
02:59
for
02:59
me
03:00
in
03:00
terms
03:00
of
03:00
how
03:00
I.
03:02
And
03:02
I
03:02
really
03:02
didn't
03:03
know
03:03
how
03:03
to
03:03
get
03:03
out
03:04
of
03:04
that
03:04
hole.
03:05
Out
03:05
of
03:05
that
03:06
darkness.
03:08
I
03:08
had
03:08
this
03:08
whole
03:08
idea
03:10
of
03:10
what
03:10
my
03:10
life
03:10
was
03:11
going
03:11
to
03:11
be
03:11
like
03:12
and
03:12
surprised
03:13
things.
03:14
Didn't
03:14
quite
03:14
turn
03:14
out
03:15
that
03:16
way.
03:17
And,
03:17
you
03:17
know,
03:18
granted,
03:18
I
03:19
was
03:19
only
03:19
25
03:20
years
03:20
older
03:20
or
03:20
so,
03:21
but
03:22
I
03:22
couldn't
03:22
see
03:22
out
03:23
of
03:24
the
03:25
incredible.
03:27
Depression
03:28
and
03:29
disappointments
03:30
that
03:31
I
03:31
had
03:31
experienced.
03:34
So
03:36
basically
03:36
what
03:36
I
03:36
did
03:37
was
03:37
I
03:37
just
03:37
kept
03:38
trying
03:38
things
03:40
and
03:40
a
03:41
lot
03:41
of
03:41
things
03:41
didn't
03:42
work
03:42
or
03:42
didn't
03:42
help,
03:43
but
03:43
some
03:44
things
03:44
did.
03:45
And
03:45
when
03:46
something
03:46
did
03:47
I
03:48
reinvested
03:48
in
03:49
that
03:50
and,
03:50
and
03:50
pursued
03:51
it
03:51
further
03:52
and
03:52
kept
03:52
exploring
03:53
further,
03:54
and
03:55
the
03:55
bottom
03:56
line
03:56
is.
03:58
Approximately
03:59
25
04:00
years
04:00
have
04:00
gone
04:00
by.
04:01
And
04:01
I
04:01
have
04:03
had
04:03
so
04:04
many
04:04
experiences
04:05
since
04:05
then
04:06
that
04:06
I
04:06
never
04:07
would've
04:07
even
04:07
imagined
04:09
would've
04:09
necessarily
04:10
even
04:10
interested
04:11
me
04:12
back
04:12
when
04:12
I
04:12
was
04:12
25.
04:14
And
04:14
I
04:14
have
04:14
had
04:15
a
04:15
really
04:16
rich,
04:16
and
04:20
this
04:20
message
04:21
that
04:21
I
04:21
wanna
04:21
deliver
04:22
to
04:22
people
04:22
is.
04:24
if
04:24
you
04:24
are
04:24
going
04:24
through
04:25
a
04:25
hard
04:25
time,
04:26
if
04:26
you
04:26
are
04:26
really
04:26
struggling,
04:28
if
04:28
you
04:28
are
04:28
at
04:28
a
04:28
low
04:29
point
04:29
in
04:29
your
04:29
life,
04:30
if
04:30
you're
04:30
experiencing
04:31
what
04:31
some
04:31
refer
04:32
to
04:32
as
04:32
a
04:32
dark
04:32
night
04:33
of
04:33
the
04:33
soul,
04:35
please,
04:36
please
04:36
listen
04:38
to
04:38
what
04:39
I
04:39
have
04:39
to
04:39
say,
04:39
which
04:40
is,
04:40
this
04:41
is
04:41
a
04:41
temporary
04:42
experience.
04:43
And
04:43
on
04:43
the
04:43
other
04:44
side
04:44
of
04:44
it,
04:45
there
04:46
are.
04:47
So
04:48
many
04:48
possibilities
04:49
that
04:49
you
04:50
can't
04:50
see
04:50
from
04:50
where
04:51
you
04:51
are
04:51
right
04:51
now.
04:52
I
04:52
know
04:53
I
04:53
get
04:53
it.
04:54
I've
04:54
been
04:54
there.
04:55
And
04:55
so
04:56
the
04:56
course
04:57
really
04:58
is
04:58
just
04:58
a
04:59
way
05:00
of
05:00
presenting
05:02
a
05:02
whole
05:02
variety
05:03
of
05:04
different
05:05
ideas.
05:06
And
05:07
mindsets
05:08
that
05:08
you
05:08
can
05:08
employ
05:10
and
05:10
they
05:10
really
05:11
should
05:11
be
05:11
explorations.
05:12
That's
05:13
how
05:13
you
05:13
should
05:13
think
05:13
of
05:13
them.
05:14
There
05:15
are
05:15
an
05:16
abundant
05:16
number
05:17
of
05:17
these
05:18
in
05:18
the
05:18
course.
05:19
And
05:19
what's
05:20
great
05:20
about
05:20
the
05:20
course
05:21
is
05:21
that
05:22
let's
05:22
say
05:22
you
05:23
move
05:23
through
05:23
it
05:24
now
05:25
in
05:25
its
05:25
entirety,
05:26
certain
05:27
things
05:27
are
05:27
probably
05:28
gonna
05:28
be
05:28
salient
05:28
for
05:29
you.
05:29
Certain
05:29
things
05:29
will
05:30
stick
05:30
out
05:30
to
05:30
you
05:30
as
05:31
they
05:31
speak
05:32
to
05:32
you
05:32
for
05:32
some
05:33
reason
05:33
or
05:33
another,
05:34
they
05:34
really
05:35
do.
05:36
You
05:36
know,
05:36
they,
05:37
they
05:37
perhaps
05:38
invite
05:39
you
05:39
to
05:40
actually
05:41
do
05:41
them.
05:41
There
05:41
are
05:41
many,
05:42
you
05:42
know,
05:42
actual
05:42
suggestions
05:43
that
05:44
I
05:44
make
05:44
in
05:44
the
05:44
course.
05:46
And
05:47
if
05:47
you
05:47
follow
05:49
any
05:49
number
05:49
of
05:49
those
05:49
suggestions,
05:50
they're
05:50
gonna
05:50
take
05:50
you
05:51
down
05:51
a
05:51
path
05:51
and
05:51
potentially
05:52
open
05:52
up
05:53
new
05:53
avenues
05:54
of
05:54
exploration
05:55
for
05:55
you.
05:58
A
05:58
year
05:58
from
05:58
now
05:58
two
05:59
years
05:59
from
05:59
now,
06:00
you
06:00
might
06:00
move
06:00
through
06:01
the
06:01
course,
06:02
the
06:02
same
06:02
course
06:03
again,
06:04
and
06:05
very
06:05
likely
06:07
different
06:07
things
06:08
may
06:09
strike
06:10
you.
06:10
Different
06:11
things
06:11
may
06:11
pop
06:12
out
06:12
as
06:13
suddenly
06:13
being
06:13
relevant
06:14
where
06:15
maybe
06:15
they
06:16
didn't
06:16
seem.
06:17
So
06:17
the
06:17
first
06:17
time
06:18
around.
06:19
And
06:20
that's
06:21
the
06:21
beauty
06:21
of
06:21
this
06:21
course
06:22
is
06:22
that
06:23
you
06:23
have
06:23
lifetime
06:24
access
06:24
to
06:24
it.
06:24
If
06:24
you
06:25
purchase.
06:27
And
06:27
it's
06:27
a
06:27
course
06:28
that
06:28
you
06:28
can
06:28
return
06:29
to
06:30
as
06:30
often
06:30
as
06:30
you
06:31
need
06:31
to.
06:32
And
06:32
I
06:33
recommend
06:33
returning
06:34
to
06:34
it
06:35
at
06:35
different
06:35
points.
06:36
Anytime
06:37
you're
06:37
in
06:37
need
06:38
of
06:38
some
06:39
inspiration,
06:41
or
06:41
if
06:41
you
06:41
feel
06:42
stuck
06:42
in
06:42
some
06:43
way,
06:44
and
06:44
you
06:44
need
06:44
a
06:45
jumpstart.
06:46
That's
06:47
really
06:47
what
06:47
this
06:48
course
06:48
is
06:48
all
06:48
about.
06:50
And
06:50
I
06:50
had
06:50
to
06:50
live
06:51
it
06:51
in
06:51
order
06:51
to
06:51
create
06:52
it
06:54
So
06:54
in
06:54
a
06:54
sense,
06:55
my
06:56
whole
06:56
life
06:57
has
06:57
been
06:59
preparation
07:00
for
07:00
the
07:00
course
07:00
to
07:01
create
07:01
this
07:01
course.
07:02
And
07:03
while
07:03
I
07:03
would
07:03
love
07:04
to
07:04
send
07:04
it
07:04
back
07:04
in
07:05
time
07:05
to
07:05
my
07:06
25
07:06
year
07:06
old
07:07
self,
07:08
what
07:08
I
07:08
can
07:09
do
07:09
is
07:10
send
07:10
it.
07:11
To
07:12
anyone,
07:13
regardless
07:14
of
07:14
their
07:14
age,
07:15
that
07:15
might
07:16
be
07:16
at
07:16
a
07:16
low
07:17
point
07:17
or
07:18
feeling
07:19
stuck,
07:20
or
07:20
maybe
07:21
they
07:21
just
07:21
feel
07:21
like
07:22
they
07:22
have
07:22
this
07:22
sense
07:22
that
07:23
there's
07:23
so
07:23
much
07:23
more
07:24
to
07:24
life
07:24
than
07:24
what
07:25
they're
07:25
currently
07:25
experiencing.
07:27
And
07:27
for
07:27
whatever
07:28
reason,
07:28
they're
07:28
having
07:29
trouble
07:30
accessing
07:31
those
07:31
other
07:32
possibilities
07:33
for
07:33
themselves.
07:34
That's
07:34
that's
07:35
who
07:35
this
07:35
course
07:35
is
07:36
for.
07:36
And
07:36
that's
07:37
what
07:37
it's
07:37
all
07:37
about.
07:38
So
07:39
magic,
07:39
as
07:39
you
07:39
had
07:40
said,
07:41
anyone
07:41
can
07:41
sign
07:42
up
07:42
for
07:42
a
07:42
free
07:42
preview
07:43
of
07:43
the
07:43
course,
07:43
so
07:43
you
07:44
can
07:44
at
07:44
least
07:45
get
07:45
a
07:45
taste
07:45
of
07:45
it
07:46
and
07:46
ex,
07:46
and
07:46
an
07:46
experience
07:47
of
07:47
it.
07:49
And,
07:50
uh,
07:50
if
07:50
you
07:50
do
07:50
decide
07:51
to
07:51
purchase
07:51
the
07:51
course
07:51
from
07:52
there,
07:52
I
07:52
also
07:52
offer
07:53
a
07:53
30
07:53
day
07:53
money
07:53
back
07:54
guarantee.
07:55
That's
07:55
how
07:55
confident
07:56
I
07:56
am
07:56
that
07:56
you
07:57
will
07:57
find
07:57
value
07:57
in
07:58
it.
07:58
So
07:58
you
07:58
can
07:59
sample
07:59
it
07:59
for
07:59
free
07:59
and
08:00
decide
08:00
for
08:00
yourself
08:01
whether
08:01
or
08:01
not
08:01
it's
08:01
of
08:01
interest
08:02
to
08:02
you.
08:03
And
08:04
if
08:04
you
08:04
do
08:04
make
08:04
a
08:04
purchase,
08:05
you
08:05
also
08:05
can
08:07
try
08:07
out
08:07
the
08:08
course
08:08
for
08:08
30
08:08
days
08:09
and
08:09
make
08:10
sure.
08:11
You're
08:11
getting
08:11
value
08:12
out
08:12
of
08:12
it.
08:13
You
08:13
can
08:13
get
08:13
a
08:13
full
08:13
refund
08:14
if
08:14
for
08:14
any
08:14
reason
08:14
you
08:15
feel
08:15
you're
08:15
not,
08:16
but
08:16
it
08:16
really,
08:16
it
08:17
really
08:17
is
08:17
a
08:17
labor
08:17
of
08:18
love.
08:18
It
08:18
was
08:18
a
08:18
passion
08:19
project
08:19
for
08:19
me,
08:20
and
08:20
it's
08:20
something
08:20
that
08:20
I
08:21
really
08:21
hope
08:22
other
08:22
people
08:23
will
08:23
benefit
08:23
from.
08:25  Magic Barclay
That's
08:25
a
08:25
very
08:26
beautiful
08:27
offer.
08:27
Thank
08:27
you.
08:28
Now,
08:28
is
08:29
there
08:29
something
08:29
else
08:29
we
08:29
can
08:30
offer
08:30
the
08:30
listeners
08:31
today?
08:32
Just
08:32
from
08:32
your
08:32
experience,
08:33
from
08:33
your
08:33
learning,
08:34
something
08:34
that
08:34
you
08:35
deal
08:35
with
08:35
every
08:35
day,
08:36
just
08:37
to
08:37
help
08:37
them.
08:39
I
08:39
guess
08:40
see
08:40
where
08:40
they're
08:40
at.
08:41
Now,
08:41
you
08:41
mentioned
08:42
about,
08:42
you
08:42
know,
08:42
where
08:42
you
08:43
were
08:43
at
08:43
in
08:43
the
08:43
twenties
08:44
is
08:44
not
08:45
where
08:45
you're
08:45
at
08:45
approaching
08:46
50.
08:46
And
08:47
I
08:47
certainly
08:48
feel
08:48
that
08:48
about
08:49
to
08:49
turn
08:49
50
08:50
myself
08:51
so
08:52
I
08:52
think
08:52
people,
08:53
a
08:53
lot
08:53
of
08:54
people
08:54
go
08:54
through
08:54
life
08:55
going
08:55
well,
08:55
in
08:55
my
08:55
twenties,
08:56
I
08:56
could
08:56
do
08:56
this.
08:57
I
08:57
could
08:57
fit
08:57
into
08:57
this.
08:58
I
08:58
could
08:58
go
08:58
there.
09:00
There
09:00
seemed
09:00
to
09:00
be
09:00
no
09:00
repercussions
09:01
in
09:01
life.
09:02
And
09:02
now
09:02
later,
09:04
you
09:04
know,
09:04
my
09:04
body's.
09:05
More
09:06
tired,
09:06
worn
09:07
down.
09:07
Maybe
09:08
a
09:08
few
09:08
injuries
09:09
have
09:09
happened.
09:11
You
09:11
know,
09:11
life
09:11
has
09:11
changed.
09:12
I
09:12
now
09:12
have
09:13
commitments.
09:13
It's
09:14
not
09:14
all
09:14
about
09:14
a
09:14
good
09:15
time.
09:15
It's
09:15
about
09:17
an
09:17
eventful
09:17
long
09:18
time.
09:19
So
09:19
what
09:19
are
09:19
some
09:20
other
09:20
things
09:21
that
09:21
you
09:21
can
09:21
share
09:21
with
09:21
the
09:21
listeners
09:22
about
09:22
really
09:23
attaching
09:23
to
09:24
where
09:24
they're
09:24
at
09:24
now
09:25
and
09:25
appreciating
09:26
what
09:26
they
09:26
have?
09:28  Eric Teplitz
That's
09:28
an
09:29
excellent
09:29
question.
09:30
And
09:30
I
09:30
think
09:30
that
09:31
this
09:31
is
09:31
where
09:31
life
09:32
experience
09:32
is
09:32
beneficial.
09:34
There's
09:34
that
09:35
saying
09:35
that
09:36
youth
09:36
is
09:36
wasted
09:37
on
09:37
the
09:37
young,
09:38
uh,
09:39
I
09:39
don't
09:39
know
09:40
if
09:41
that's
09:41
a
09:41
universal
09:41
truth
09:42
or
09:42
not,
09:42
but
09:42
it,
09:42
it
09:43
sort
09:43
of
09:43
is
09:43
in
09:44
line
09:44
with
09:44
what
09:44
you
09:44
were
09:44
suggesting
09:45
that
09:46
we
09:46
have.
09:47
Perhaps
09:48
greater
09:49
health
09:49
and
09:49
vitality,
09:50
at
09:50
least,
09:51
um,
09:51
naturally
09:52
speaking,
09:52
when
09:52
we're
09:53
younger
09:53
and
09:54
as
09:54
we
09:54
age,
09:55
we
09:55
tend
09:56
to
09:56
experience
09:57
some
09:58
sort
09:58
of
09:59
decline
10:00
or
10:00
compromise
10:01
to
10:01
that
10:02
vitality.
10:03
Or
10:03
at
10:03
least
10:03
we
10:03
can
10:03
experience
10:04
it.
10:04
I
10:04
don't
10:04
think
10:04
that
10:05
it
10:05
necessarily
10:05
has
10:06
to
10:06
be
10:06
that
10:06
way.
10:06
Some
10:06
people
10:07
have
10:07
the
10:07
opposite
10:07
experience,
10:09
but
10:10
there
10:10
is
10:11
a
10:11
wisdom.
10:13
And
10:13
if
10:13
only
10:13
in
10:14
just
10:14
understanding
10:15
yourself
10:16
that
10:16
comes
10:16
with
10:17
years
10:18
of
10:18
experience
10:19
on
10:19
this
10:19
planet
10:20
in
10:20
this
10:20
life.
10:21
And
10:22
that
10:23
that
10:23
experience
10:24
is
10:24
priceless.
10:24
There's
10:24
another
10:25
saying
10:25
that
10:26
I,
10:26
that
10:26
I
10:26
wanted
10:27
to,
10:27
um,
10:28
refer
10:29
to
10:29
here,
10:29
which
10:29
is
10:30
worth
10:30
thinking
10:31
about,
10:31
and
10:32
that
10:33
goes
10:33
something
10:33
along
10:33
the
10:34
lines
10:34
of
10:35
when
10:35
you're
10:36
young,
10:37
you
10:37
trade
10:37
your
10:38
health
10:38
for.
10:40
And
10:40
when
10:40
you're
10:40
old,
10:41
you
10:41
trade
10:42
your
10:42
money
10:42
back
10:43
for
10:43
health.
10:45
I
10:45
think
10:45
that
10:45
there's
10:46
a
10:46
lot
10:47
in
10:47
that.
10:48
And
10:48
so
10:49
I
10:49
think
10:49
that
10:49
if
10:50
you're
10:50
on
10:50
the
10:50
younger
10:50
side
10:51
of
10:51
things,
10:52
it's
10:52
worth
10:52
keeping
10:53
in
10:53
mind
10:54
that
10:55
we
10:55
pay
10:55
a
10:56
price.
10:57
When
10:57
we
10:59
do
10:59
things
10:59
at
10:59
the
11:00
expense
11:00
of
11:00
our.
11:02
And
11:03
even
11:03
though
11:03
when
11:03
you're
11:03
younger,
11:04
that
11:04
price
11:05
may
11:05
not
11:05
be
11:05
as
11:05
evident
11:06
or
11:06
as
11:06
immediate,
11:08
it
11:08
is
11:09
there
11:09
to
11:09
be
11:09
paid
11:10
at
11:10
some
11:10
point.
11:11
So
11:11
it's
11:11
worth
11:12
thinking
11:12
about
11:12
that
11:13
in
11:13
advance.
11:13
If
11:13
you're
11:14
going
11:14
to
11:14
take
11:14
a
11:14
job
11:15
that
11:15
maybe
11:15
is
11:15
really
11:16
well
11:16
paying,
11:16
but
11:16
it's
11:16
gonna,
11:17
you're
11:17
gonna
11:17
be
11:17
inviting
11:18
all
11:18
kinds
11:18
of
11:18
stress
11:19
that
11:19
might
11:19
be
11:20
negative
11:20
stress,
11:21
then
11:21
consider
11:22
that,
11:22
that
11:22
the
11:23
financial
11:23
reward
11:23
for
11:24
the
11:24
job.
11:24
Isn't
11:24
the
11:24
only
11:25
thing
11:25
that
11:26
matters.
11:27
Again,
11:28
if
11:28
you
11:28
can
11:29
have
11:29
a
11:29
job
11:30
that
11:30
affords
11:31
you
11:31
a
11:31
more
11:32
balanced
11:32
lifestyle,
11:33
and
11:33
that
11:33
acknowledges
11:34
the
11:34
fact
11:35
that
11:35
you're
11:35
a
11:35
human
11:35
being
11:35
with
11:36
other
11:36
needs
11:37
and
11:37
interests,
11:38
other
11:38
than
11:38
the
11:38
job,
11:40
that
11:40
even
11:41
if
11:41
it's
11:41
significantly
11:42
lower
11:42
paying
11:43
might
11:43
be
11:44
more,
11:44
more
11:44
beneficial
11:45
to
11:45
you
11:45
in
11:45
the
11:45
long
11:46
run.
11:47
So
11:47
these
11:47
are
11:47
some
11:47
things
11:48
to
11:48
think
11:48
about
11:49
that
11:49
are
11:49
at
11:50
the
11:50
top
11:50
of
11:50
my
11:50
mind.
11:51
when
11:51
you
11:51
presented
11:52
that
11:52
question,
11:53
the
11:53
only
11:53
other
11:53
thing
11:54
that
11:54
I,
11:54
I
11:54
wanna
11:54
say
11:55
here
11:55
is
11:55
just
11:56
that
11:57
we
11:57
all,
11:58
I
11:58
think
11:59
tend
12:00
to
12:00
judge
12:01
our
12:02
experiences.
12:02
It's
12:03
very
12:03
natural
12:03
for
12:04
us
12:04
to
12:04
do
12:04
this.
12:04
We
12:05
judge
12:05
things
12:05
as
12:05
good
12:06
or
12:06
bad,
12:07
anything
12:07
that
12:07
happens
12:07
to
12:08
us.
12:08
And
12:09
as
12:09
you
12:09
get
12:10
older
12:11
and
12:11
have
12:11
more
12:12
life
12:12
experience,
12:13
you
12:13
start
12:14
noticing
12:14
that
12:15
some
12:15
of
12:15
the
12:15
things
12:15
that
12:15
you
12:16
thought
12:17
were
12:17
really.
12:19
Terrible
12:19
things
12:19
that
12:19
happened
12:20
to
12:20
you.
12:20
In
12:21
retrospect,
12:22
and
12:22
with
12:22
hindsight,
12:23
you
12:23
can
12:23
see
12:24
that
12:24
there
12:24
may
12:24
have
12:24
been
12:25
precious
12:25
gifts
12:26
buried
12:27
within
12:27
those,
12:28
those
12:28
things
12:28
that
12:29
happened
12:29
to
12:29
you,
12:30
and
12:30
they
12:30
weren't
12:30
apparent
12:31
to
12:31
you
12:31
at
12:31
the
12:31
time,
12:32
but
12:32
now
12:33
years
12:33
later,
12:33
looking
12:34
back,
12:34
you
12:34
can
12:34
see
12:34
them
12:35
more
12:35
clearly.
12:36
And
12:36
so
12:37
when
12:37
you've
12:38
had
12:38
that
12:38
experience
12:38
before,
12:39
in
12:39
any
12:39
way,
12:40
it's
12:40
worth
12:41
reminding
12:41
yourself
12:42
that
12:43
we
12:43
don't
12:43
always
12:44
know
12:45
the
12:45
long
12:46
term.
12:47
Of
12:47
the
12:47
things
12:48
that
12:48
we
12:48
experience,
12:49
we
12:49
might
12:49
see
12:50
something
12:50
that
12:50
happens
12:51
to
12:51
us
12:51
as,
12:52
truly
12:52
terrible
12:53
and
12:53
unfortunate,
12:54
and
12:54
it
12:54
might
12:54
be,
12:56
but
12:57
it's
12:58
also
12:58
possible
12:59
that
12:59
we
13:00
are
13:00
either
13:00
misjudging
13:01
it
13:01
or
13:02
that
13:02
we
13:03
can,
13:03
as
13:03
I
13:03
had
13:03
said
13:04
in
13:04
the
13:04
last
13:05
episode,
13:05
we
13:05
can
13:06
find
13:06
a
13:06
way
13:06
to
13:06
productively,
13:07
make
13:07
use
13:08
of
13:08
it.
13:08
Creative
13:09
people
13:09
do
13:09
this
13:09
all
13:10
the
13:10
time
13:10
in
13:10
their
13:10
art.
13:11
You
13:12
know,
13:12
if
13:12
you
13:12
experience
13:13
something
13:14
that
13:14
was
13:14
very
13:14
painful.
13:15
You
13:16
can
13:16
make
13:16
a
13:16
song
13:16
out
13:17
of
13:17
it,
13:17
or
13:17
you
13:17
can
13:18
write
13:18
a
13:18
story
13:20
or
13:20
you
13:20
can
13:20
create
13:21
a
13:21
personal
13:21
development
13:22
course
13:23
around
13:23
it.
13:24
You
13:24
can
13:25
help
13:25
other
13:25
people
13:26
who
13:26
are
13:26
going
13:27
through
13:27
that
13:27
thing.
13:28
So
13:29
there
13:29
are
13:29
any
13:30
number
13:30
of
13:30
ways
13:31
you
13:31
can
13:31
positively
13:32
make
13:32
use
13:33
of
13:33
a
13:33
quote
13:34
negative
13:34
experience.
13:36
So
13:37
I
13:37
guess
13:37
the,
13:38
the
13:38
message
13:38
is
13:38
just
13:39
to.
13:40
What
13:40
I'm
13:40
finding
13:41
is
13:41
the
13:41
more
13:42
you
13:42
can
13:42
be
13:43
experience
13:44
equanimity,
13:45
the
13:45
more
13:46
you
13:46
can
13:46
not
13:47
let
13:47
your
13:47
highs
13:47
get
13:47
too
13:48
high
13:48
and
13:48
not
13:48
let
13:49
your
13:49
lows
13:49
get
13:49
too
13:50
low
13:50
and
13:50
have
13:51
some
13:51
perspective.
13:52
And
13:52
just
13:52
remember
13:53
that
13:53
everything
13:53
that
13:54
happens
13:54
to
13:54
us
13:55
is
13:55
temporary.
13:56
Everything
13:57
is
13:57
constantly
13:57
changing
13:58
and
13:58
evolving,
13:59
and
14:00
we
14:00
don't
14:00
always
14:01
know
14:01
what's
14:01
truly
14:02
in
14:03
our
14:03
best
14:03
interest.
14:04
And
14:04
so
14:04
if
14:04
we
14:05
can
14:05
take
14:05
a
14:05
pause
14:06
or
14:06
if
14:06
we
14:06
can
14:07
simply.
14:09
Have
14:09
the
14:09
presence
14:09
of
14:09
mind
14:10
to
14:10
remember
14:10
this,
14:11
we
14:11
might
14:11
be
14:11
able
14:11
to
14:11
respond
14:12
more
14:12
effectively
14:13
in
14:13
our
14:13
lives
14:13
to
14:14
the
14:14
things
14:14
that
14:14
happened
14:14
to
14:15
us.
14:16  Magic Barclay
That
14:16
was,
14:16
uh,
14:17
a
14:17
pretty
14:17
amazing
14:19
answer
14:19
to
14:20
my
14:20
rather
14:21
boring
14:21
question.
14:22
Thank
14:22
you.
14:24
Now
14:24
I'm
14:25
hearing
14:25
a
14:25
bit
14:26
of
14:27
underlying
14:28
story
14:29
here
14:29
with
14:29
you,
14:29
Eric.
14:30
So
14:30
I'm
14:30
going
14:30
to
14:31
delve
14:31
into
14:31
this.
14:33
Because
14:34
it
14:34
seems
14:34
to
14:34
be
14:34
a
14:34
bit
14:35
of
14:35
a
14:35
theme.
14:36
Who
14:36
is
14:37
Eric?
14:38
What
14:38
have
14:38
you
14:39
experienced
14:39
that
14:40
you'd
14:40
like
14:40
to
14:40
share
14:40
with
14:40
the
14:40
listeners?
14:41
Because
14:42
they're
14:42
probably
14:42
listening
14:43
to
14:43
you
14:43
right
14:43
now
14:43
going,
14:44
oh,
14:44
he's
14:44
never
14:44
had
14:45
a
14:45
problem
14:45
in
14:45
his
14:45
life.
14:46
You
14:47
know,
14:47
how
14:47
could
14:47
he
14:47
tell
14:47
us
14:48
about
14:48
this
14:48
equanimity?
14:50
Like
14:51
I
14:51
think
14:51
maybe
14:52
we
14:52
just
14:52
need
14:52
to
14:52
open
14:53
the
14:53
door
14:53
here
14:53
a
14:54
little
14:54
bit
14:54
so
14:54
that
14:55
people
14:55
understand
14:57
that
14:57
your
14:57
learnings
14:58
have
14:58
come
14:58
from
14:58
some.
15:00  Eric Teplitz
Sure.
15:01
So
15:01
first
15:02
of
15:02
all,
15:02
let
15:02
me
15:02
stress
15:03
that
15:03
equanimity.
15:04
I
15:04
see
15:04
that
15:05
as
15:06
an
15:06
aspiration.
15:08
Do
15:09
not
15:09
claim
15:10
to
15:10
have
15:10
mastered
15:11
this
15:13
Um,
15:13
but
15:14
I
15:14
do
15:14
think
15:14
I've
15:14
gotten
15:15
better
15:15
at
15:15
it
15:15
over
15:16
the
15:16
years.
15:17
So
15:17
it's
15:17
not
15:18
that
15:18
I
15:18
don't
15:18
have
15:18
my
15:19
reactions.
15:20
It's
15:20
not
15:20
that
15:20
I
15:20
don't
15:20
get
15:21
upset.
15:22
And
15:22
it's
15:22
not
15:23
that
15:23
I
15:23
don't,
15:23
that
15:23
I
15:23
don't
15:24
experience
15:24
quote,
15:25
negative
15:25
emotions.
15:26
I,
15:26
I
15:26
say
15:27
quote,
15:27
because
15:28
again,
15:28
emotions
15:29
are
15:29
just
15:29
information.
15:30
And
15:30
if
15:31
we
15:31
listen
15:31
to
15:31
them,
15:32
then.
15:33
If
15:34
we
15:34
listen
15:34
to
15:34
the
15:34
messages
15:35
that
15:35
they're
15:35
giving
15:35
us,
15:36
then
15:36
they're
15:37
actually
15:38
helpers.
15:38
They're
15:39
helpful
15:39
to
15:40
us,
15:40
but
15:40
sometimes
15:41
certain
15:41
experiences
15:42
that,
15:42
that
15:42
we
15:42
call
15:43
negative.
15:43
They're
15:43
just
15:43
really
15:44
what
15:44
they
15:44
are
15:44
is
15:44
they're
15:44
unpleasant.
15:46
Um,
15:47
so,
15:47
but
15:47
you
15:47
know,
15:48
then
15:48
I'm
15:48
not
15:49
avoiding
15:49
the
15:49
subject.
15:50
You're
15:50
asking
15:50
about
15:50
my
15:50
personal
15:51
experience
15:51
and
15:52
personal
15:52
difficulties
15:53
that
15:53
I've
15:54
faced.
15:55
And
15:56
one
15:56
of
15:57
the,
15:57
the
15:57
big
15:57
ones
15:58
for
15:58
me
15:58
was
16:00
I
16:00
had
16:01
this
16:01
idea.
16:02
For
16:02
myself
16:04
from
16:04
a
16:04
fairly
16:05
early
16:05
age,
16:05
that
16:06
music
16:06
was
16:07
my
16:07
singular
16:07
passion
16:08
in
16:08
life.
16:08
And
16:08
it
16:08
was
16:09
the
16:10
only
16:10
thing
16:11
that
16:11
could
16:11
make
16:11
me
16:11
happy.
16:12
And
16:13
what
16:13
I
16:13
mean
16:13
by
16:13
that
16:14
is
16:14
pursuing
16:14
it
16:15
as
16:15
a
16:16
livelihood.
16:17
That
16:17
that
16:17
was
16:17
my
16:17
dream.
16:18
And
16:18
that
16:18
was
16:18
what
16:19
I
16:19
wanted
16:19
more
16:20
than
16:20
anything
16:20
else.
16:21
And
16:21
I,
16:22
I
16:22
gave
16:23
everything
16:23
to
16:23
it.
16:24
I
16:24
really,
16:24
you
16:24
know,
16:25
wholeheartedly
16:26
went
16:26
after.
16:28
And
16:28
did
16:28
all
16:28
the
16:28
things
16:29
in
16:29
my
16:29
power
16:30
that
16:30
I
16:30
could
16:30
think
16:30
of
16:30
to
16:31
do,
16:31
to
16:32
manifest
16:32
this
16:33
dream.
16:34
And
16:34
I
16:35
just
16:35
wanna
16:35
emphasize
16:36
that
16:37
the
16:37
dream
16:38
was
16:38
to
16:38
be
16:38
able
16:39
to
16:39
make
16:39
a
16:39
living
16:40
and,
16:41
uh,
16:41
a
16:41
sustainable
16:42
living
16:43
off
16:43
of
16:43
doing
16:44
the
16:44
things
16:44
that
16:44
I
16:44
loved,
16:45
which
16:45
were
16:45
writing,
16:46
recording,
16:46
and
16:46
performing
16:47
my
16:47
own
16:47
music.
16:48
So
16:49
in
16:49
other
16:49
words,
16:49
like
16:50
I
16:50
didn't
16:50
have
16:50
to
16:50
necessarily
16:51
be
16:51
rich
16:51
and
16:51
famous,
16:52
although
16:53
I
16:53
certainly
16:53
wouldn't
16:53
have
16:54
turned
16:54
it
16:54
down
16:54
when
16:54
I
16:54
was
16:55
younger.
16:55
I
16:56
might.
16:56
Now
16:57
that's
16:57
the
16:57
interesting
16:58
thing
16:58
is
16:59
I
16:59
might
16:59
now,
17:00
I
17:00
don't
17:00
know.
17:01
but
17:03
I
17:03
poured
17:03
myself
17:04
into
17:04
this
17:04
dream
17:05
and
17:06
the
17:07
return
17:07
on
17:08
my
17:08
investment,
17:08
so
17:09
to
17:09
speak
17:09
was
17:10
extremely
17:11
poor.
17:12
I
17:12
gave
17:13
everything
17:13
that
17:13
I
17:13
had
17:14
to
17:14
give
17:15
and
17:15
I
17:15
never
17:16
planned
17:16
on
17:17
stopping
17:17
the
17:17
pursuit
17:18
because
17:18
it
17:18
was
