Giving Up Millions For A Life of Peace - Page 2
According to Dictionary.com, Yoga is defined as the “attaining of liberation from the material world and union of the self with the Supreme Being or ultimate principle.”
Achieving a control of the body, mind and tranquility is exactly what Rich’s soul had cried out for. He didn’t know that it needed that, but our mind and spirits will manifest a particular need or desire in ways that you might not be aware of – ways that are beyond our control.
“This is different, these people are happy with just being here. It wasn’t about the size of an apartment, what car they were driving – I was spending $500 a month to park my car. It was crazy! It totally changed my life. Within 6 months, I was going every single day. Within one year, I had become a full time yoga instructor. I went into acting and 6 months later I went to Hollywood.”
Rich had found solace in his discovery of a life that wasn’t about money. At heart he wasn’t the capitalist that he thought that he was.
“I had money, now I have none. I went from spending $20,000 a month to now spending less than $2,000. I am okay with that.”
Rich has written a book chronicling his journey – a journey that spans more than 40 years of a life that has been exciting, risky, and sexy; one that many could only dream of having. You and I might have only lived this out through watching the film Wall Street.
Simply Between Millions: From Wall Street to Hollywood takes you on a journey that you can relate to. There are those of us who would give anything to be able to leave what we do on a daily basis to be able to find solace in our lives through our passion. Rich has found two passions – his careers in acting and in helping people find the peace that he did through yoga.
