(8:35) Key Takeaways
Ryan mentions how he is good at reading people and this helps him to know which people are good for him and which aren’t. He has the ability to steer clear away from bad people. His mindset is one built on strength as opposed to one built on weakness.
Ryan had a very rich successful mentor who thinks differently in everything. In money, in dreams and this completely changed the perspective of how Ryan thinks as well. This was when his life as an entrepreneur really started.
Principle that Ryan lives by is “I learn what I want to teach and then I teach what I want to learn.” He talks about how when he wakes up he’s asking himself, what book does he want to dive into? What does he want to teach?
(21:09) Making Connections
Ryan talks about how he always felt that he is worthy of a connection with people. He strongly believes everyone is equal and we can learn from them. He makes connections with people who are willing to allow him and he lets go of people who aren’t. He just keeps learning from those who allow him without ever thinking they are so far of his reach.

When you’re spiritually inclined, a lot of people believe that money is mutually exclusive, but being spiritually focused, you can actually generate far more wealth because the money that you generate has a deeper meaning. You will call it in with more reverence.
