48. Volume: Darin Olien Revisited: Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a sense of being where you are intensely aware of what you’re feeling. It’s about letting whatever emotion you’re experiencing run through you. You acknowledge it and let it guide you, without judgement.

This is The Psychology of Entrepreneurship,

a highly produced, revealing audio docuseries that follows Ronsley Vaz and his guests, as they strive to go inside & unravel the inner workings of the mind of an entrepreneur, artist, athlete, academic; to decipher what is the psychology of our decisions.

If you are an entrepreneur (BTW we consider that mothers are the original entrepreneurs) and would like to understand why we do certain things in certain situations, and if small changes in thinking can deliver massive amounts of results in success and happiness, then this podcast is for you.

Darin Olien lost it all. And that loss gave him fuel.

You may know Darin from his hit Netflix show with Zac Efron, Down to Earth. Or you may know him from his top-rated podcast The Darin Olien Show, that we’ve had the pleasure of working with him on for the last year. But Darin definitely isn’t an overnight success. He’s been working his vegan butt off for years to help save the planet.

He’s affectionately known as the “Superfood Hunter”, and has ethically sourced more than 300 foods and ingredients from around the world. He strives to discover new and underutilized medicinal plants. And because of his extensive work, he stands as a valuable resource on plant-based nutrition, supplement formulation and elite performance programs.

Darin is the world-renowned visionary and founder behind SuperLife, Beachbody’s ‘Shakeology’ and the comprehensive plant-based ‘Ultimate Reset 21-day Detoxification Program.’  He’s also the author of the health and lifestyle guide SuperLife: The 5 Simple Fixes That Will Make You Healthy, Fit & Eternally Awesome.

And just a couple years ago, he lost his home and entire property in the California wildfires. In this volume, Ronsley, with the help of Kaili, explores the concept of mindfulness, and how it can help with the overwhelming experience of grief. Using clips of past volumes, we take a look at what it means to be mindful. Repressing pain only gives it power to manifest as other things, like anger and resentment. Darin knows this all too well. And he walks us through how he was able to process the unimaginable grief that comes with losing your home. We all can benefit from mindfulness, and it might be a lot less complicated than you think.

Also within this volume:
  • The dichotomy of grief and joy
  • Why authenticity is so important to Darin
  • The threat to the world’s last untouched Amazon tribe
  • Why it’s never smart to show up to an unknown place without context
  • Bhutan and what it can teach us about happiness
  • The devastating moment Darin learned of the fires in Malibu
  • The even more devastating moment Darin returned to his property
  • Darin’s definition of Mindfulness and how to get there yourself
  • How Darin’s life has changed since the fires
  • Why you need to “just face it”
