Rasel, who has undergone many challenges in life talks about his resilient spirit and how he doesn't let any difficulties in life hold him back. Rasel and Umar discuss the transformative experiences in Chowdhury's life that led him to where he is today. After losing both parents at the age of 14 and facing rejection from British immigration, Chowdhury learned to focus on what he could do, rather than what he couldn't. He began to teach himself computer programming and web development, and also became involved in stock brokerage. This experience, coupled with managing his late father's businesses, sparked his interest in business ownership.
Umar emphasizes the importance of knowing who you are and having a sense of purpose. He differentiates between commitment and attachment, suggesting that being committed without being overly attached to the outcome allows for a more joyful journey towards one's goals. Chowdhury echoes this sentiment, noting the importance of enjoying the process. He also shares his recent experience of nearly losing his own child and how he and his wife now provide emotional support to parents in similar situations. Umar Hameed adds his perspective on the difference between commitment and attachment and how the universe tends to respond positively when we commit to our authentic selves and purpose.
At this stage in his life, Rasel is financially stable and wants to give back by growing his podcast and community, as well as supporting others who are facing emotional struggles.

Umar Hameed teaches the difference between commitment and attachment. He believes that when we commit to what we want wholeheartedly, we can go after it.

What does Umar Hameed mean by "knowing who you are and what your purpose is"?
According to Umar Hameed, one needs to have a clear understanding of their personal identity and their purpose in life.

What advice does Umar Hameed give about teaching and learning?
Umar Hameed advises that if one wants to learn something, they should teach it. He believes that teaching a concept or a skill not only solidifies one's understanding but also provides unique insights that might not have been clear before. He also emphasizes the joy and fulfillment that comes from helping others.
What are Rasel's five steps to overcome depression or stress, particularly when dealing with a severe personal issue?
What does the first step - Gratitude - mean in overcoming stress or depression?
Gratitude means finding things in your life that you're grateful for. This could be anything from personal achievements to the people in your life. Gratitude can help to shift focus from negative thoughts to positive ones.
What is meant by 'living in the present moment'?
Living in the present moment means focusing on what's happening right now, rather than worrying about the past or future. This can involve taking immediate action to improve the situation.
What is the importance of 'acceptance' in dealing with stress or depression?
Acceptance is recognizing the reality of the situation, especially things that are beyond your control. It's about acknowledging the outcome after you've done your best and understanding that there's only so much you can do. Acceptance can help reduce feelings of frustration and helplessness.
