Welcome back to The Serial CEO! Today, I’m going to talk about living above life’s turmoil. What does it mean to be living above the drama? What does it mean to be living above the things that we don’t have control over, that seem to steer us out of control mentally and physically in a lot of different ways? Inspired by my readings of James Allen, I hope that you guys can pick up a nugget of wisdom or two from this episode. Enjoy!



  • What is drama? Drama is ultimately attaching yourself to something that you don’t have control over to where it becomes a problem.
  • How can we live above life’s turmoil? We have to eradicate portions of ourselves that get attached to external problems or tensions, or things that have nothing to do with us.

  • What do these things have to do with desire? The things we pay attention to lead us to what we get in life. Ultimately, we pay attention to what we desire.

  • What are some of the traits that indicate negative desire? These include lust, hatred, avarice, doubt, dark beliefs, self-indulgence, self-seeking, vanity, and pride.

  • What does it mean to be living above drama? It’s about regaining an appreciation for what’s simple and what’s true.

  • Why is there comfort in releasing what you cannot control? Because now you understand that your presence, your being, is only controllable and directly affected by what you choose to focus on.

  • What are some things that we could focus on? Purity, patience, humility, self-sacrifice, self-reliance, fearlessness, knowledge, wisdom, compassion, and love.

  • Why should we focus on self-truth? Because if you know your truth, you can offer that truth to others and then you win.

“If you’re reaching outside of yourself to try to bring something into yourself as far as your self-identity, I think that’s when you find yourself in a place where you’re not being authentically you.” [03:24]

“At the end of the day, the things that you can’t control are in the control of something else, and when you release it into that, there’s comfort in that.” [06:33]

“If you just try to detach from drama and you don’t re-attach yourself to something internal, you’re going to reattach to it.” [07:10]

“Love of gratification and desire makes you reluctant to love others.” [11:46]


The Serial CEO is a show where we are looking to break barriers! We’re looking to put you in a position to win by developing an elite mindset, by creating the life that you choose for yourself — a self-directed life. In my opinion, that is an elite life!
