Russell Simmons. Part vegan-yogi. Part pop icon. 100% awesome. (And *really* funny. :) In PN - Volume I we did a Note on his great book Do You! and I’m excited to share some of my favorite Big Ideas from this fun weekend read as well. Favorites include getting on the right train, becoming a business yogi, the power of hard work, and cleaning out the junk mail in our minds!
Who knew the Godfather of hip-hop was also an incredible yogi and spiritual teacher?!? In this Note, we'll have fun learning how to "Do You!!" as we tap into the importance of having a powerful vision for our lives, the fact that a mantra is literally a "tool of thought" we can use to shape our minds, and how important it is to take the next baby step in front of us as we give ourselves most fully to the world.
