Guest: Peter Ratnikov
Peter took the opportunity to dive deep into an area of conversation that he typically doesn’t express publicly too often. He shares his journey growing up and coming to Canada as a young immigrant, starting his own businesses from such a young age, and getting caught up in success and living the life he thought would bring him happiness. He shared details of what it was like to experience that level of confusion of what success was meant to be. It took a toll on his mental health and started to rely on alcohol consumption, not having the desire to wake up in the mornings, with many other impacts that questioned what true happiness meant for him. Peter detailed how it all started with looking at how to improve his professional and financial gain, until he started his path on his spiritual journey. He started with looking at gratitude, incorporating meditation practices, learning to embody being present consistently throughout each day, not just when he sits in mindfulness and stillness. Peter spoke about how encountering all the strife on his path, allowed him to connect to his true self and learn the meaning of true authentic happiness. His key message to the listeners is that: take time to retreat, to reflect in the quiet, take time to connect with how you feel and what is going on for you in the inside; find what works for you, it will look different for each person, but there is something that helps you understand and settle yourself that has the ability to ignite your energy.
