Food For Thought (2/8/20)

Hi Friends,

We are so excited to launch our very first newsletter called “Food for Though Sunday.” 

As some of you already know at Roya we aim to learn, share and master the best of what others already know. We do this in hopes of understanding ourselves and those around us better. 

With this newsletter we hope to share a collection of the most useful insights we come across each month. We search the web, devour hundreds of books a year and learn from some of the sharpest minds. Learn with us, sharpen your thinking, gain new perspectives, make smarter decisions and lead a purposeful life. 

 Lastly, I totally understand if this isn't your thing, so feel free to unsubscribe below.

Our latest articles:

Purpose, Meaning & LifeI've been reading an endless number of books by Zen Buddhist, top Executive Coaches, Business men and women and what it has come down to is that purpose has a lot to do with it. Purpose is our unique contribution to this world (not just to the place that pays us), and often times it brings with it clarity, focus, and confidence.

Yoga is changing my lifeI've been immersing myself in the practice of yoga. Specifically Hatha, 90min, 3-4X a week and it has been nothing but a medicine for my soul. In this article I will explain a handful of things I've been meditating on while practicing yoga. That said, the journey hasn't stopped and I continue discovering new things about my body, my mind and the practice of yoga.

Book recommendations:

The Art of Power by Thich Nhat Hanh - gist: According to the book to be better at your craft, life, humanity, you'll need to tap into five sources of energy to achieve peace. These sources are: Faith, diligence, mindfulness, concentration, insights.

Leading From Purpose by Nick Craig - gist: purpose is a tremendous source of motivation. Organizations, leaders and individuals that lead life and work from their purpose are more motivated, experience more joy and tackle bigger and more impactful challenges. What is your purpose?

Reboot by Jerry Colonna - Excellent book...tad repetitive if you listen to the podcast...the last chapter was the best, read it twice - gist: to be a better leader you need to be a better human first and to be a better human you need to get to know yourself better.

Worth listening to:

“I can say hard things to you, with kindness and respect, and you keep your dignity, and I’m not cruel.”

The Episode is called "A More Powerful Way of Working" and it covers radical honesty - an open and authentic contribution, which lacks the intention of causing unnecessary pain and suffering, but serves to provide a mirror in which we can clearly reflect on the aspects of ourselves to which we are blind.

Jerry Colonna the host is a successful venture capitalist who has turned tech startup/executive coach and based on his podcast and book he seems very good. But this specific episode was especially on fire. Patty MacCord's (former Chief Talent Officer at Netflix) wisdom and strength are fierce.

Until next time 👋🏽

  • Investing on the cryptocurrency market has been a main source of income, that’s why knowledge plays a very important role in humanity, you don’t need to over work yourself for money.All you need is the right information, and you could build your own wealth from the comfort of your home!Binary trading is dependent on timely signals, assets or controlled strategies which when mastered increases chance of winning up to 90%-100% with trading. It’s possible to earn $10,000 to $20,000 trading weekly-monthly in cryptocurrency(bitcoin) investment,just get in contact with Mr Bernie Doran my broker. I had almost given up on everything about binary trading and never getting my lost funds back, till i met with him, with his help and guidance now i have my lost funds back to my bank account, gained more profit and I can now trade successfully with his profitable strategies and software!!
