Yogi’s Question or Topic
Yogi started creating content on Instagram back in 2016 to make fun of yoga. He did not have any practice of the art, but it ended up changing his life. When he first heard Gary’s words, he took the risk and disregarded the judgments and went on selling his house and lived with his in-laws for about four or five months, and was able to get out of his $30,000 debt. It was tough, but it set his future up much better.
Today, he owns a Yoga brand called Namaste As Fuck, teaches the art, and posts this content everywhere, such as Facebook and TikTok. Right now, Yogi is on the show to thank Gary for all his success in life. Yogi also wants to know Gary’s opinion on being on the phone so much, like batching texts or going to Instagram at certain times of the day because what Yogi feels right now is like having a cellphone addiction.
Gary’s Story and Advices
Gary is proud of Yogi because he applied the theory to his life despite the fear of judgment. For Gary, it takes a lot of courage to do what Yogi did. It’s a tremendous coup if someone can’t afford his lifestyle and is able to reset.
Also, one of the things people don’t realize are the advantages of going back to their parents, or their best friend, in-laws, and spending time with them. He thinks it would be fun because it brings you closer to the people you like.
