Radically Loved® with Rosie Acosta

Hello Friends, I’m Rosie Acosta. I am a Meditation Teacher; Speaker and Author of You Are Radically Loved: A healing journey to self-love. I grew up in East Los Angeles during the 92 La Riots and it set me on a troubled path for many years. I didn’t grow up with mentors in my life, so I turned to reading as many books as I possibly could to learn about life’s purpose. In my journey as a First Gen-Mexican American, I found having these conversations gave me insight, support, and inspiration. So, I decided to create a place where I could share these conversations with my community. The Radically Loved Podcast was born! How do we create a radically loved life? Come have a sit with me so we can discover all things mindfulness, spirituality, self-love, and overall healthy living. Please be sure to share the episodes that you love and also leave us a review!

The pandemic made us question many things about our lives — our goals, passion, and even existence. It was like a wake-up call, reminding us that we are only temporary beings. Even now, many of us struggle with grief and the idea of impermanence. Despite all this, you need to remember that your fate ultimately lies in how you deal with your inner voice. When you rise above your fears and failure, rest assured that success and growth await you with open arms.
In this episode, Alex Banayan, author of The Third Door, shares his experience in writing his book and the question that started his incredible journey. Alex also gives his insights about finding mentors in a digital world and the lessons he learned from his own mentors. Finally, he reveals the secrets to the success of accomplished entrepreneurs in his book.

Finding Mentors in a Digital Platform

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode
[07:58] “You know, success implies a singular destination. What [our life] looking for is [its] continued growth. What it’s looking for is a deeper sense of meaning, a deeper sense of contribution, a deeper sense of alignment, a deeper sense of connection.”
[15:46] “When something, even if it’s painful, gives us a sense of fulfillment and a sense of meaning, the pain becomes impermanent and the fulfillment stays with us.”
[19:22] “Those who have experienced [grief] know, it sort of has a mind of its own. It normally comes at the most inconvenient times.”
[21:48] “There is another way to relate to [fear and other uncomfortable feelings]. And that’s by inviting them in. And while it feels like the complete opposite of my instincts, it’s actually the action that feels the most soothing and relieving.”
[25:14] “What that tension is saying to you is that there’s a version of you that is capable of more; of more meaning, more contribution, more joy. The tension of who you are today and who you know deep down you can be next month [or] next year. That tension is actually the seed of change.”
