Choose Positive Living with Sara Troy and her guest Nate Rifkin, on air from July 7th
I want to share my journey of going from suicidal and in deep debt to feeling happy, fulfilled, and turning my life around with Daoist meditation. What I learned can help people who try to think positive and achieve their dreams yet still feel stuck.
When Nate Rifkin began his journey, he hated himself. He was suicidal and drank alcohol every morning. He dropped out of college, went broke, bankrupt, and even worked on street corners waving around a sign.

Hour after hour, he contemplated suicide. How would he do it? Would it hurt? After dropping out of college, Nate Rifkin had dedicated himself to self-help and pursuing his entrepreneurial dreams. Yet he failed to achieve any of his goals. Worse, he spiraled into debt, drank every morning, felt lonely, lost, and hated himself. A few years later – after a brutal bankruptcy and a stint spinning signs on a street corner – Nate Rifkin had quadrupled his income, married the woman of his dreams, and found happiness and contentment. What made the difference? Oddly enough, Rifkin had discovered an ancient form of meditation that reversed his downward spiral and elevated him to levels of success he never dreamed possible. Candid and painful – but ultimately inspiring – The Standing Meditation will show you step-by-step how to perform this ancient meditation and introduce you to the mysterious spiritual tradition it comes from. You’ll discover how to stop self-sabotage, eliminate self-doubt, and tap into an unlimited source of energy. This practice is not easy. It’s not pain-free. But it could transform your life.
However, Nate learned a little-known spiritual discipline that helped him transform his thoughts, emotions, and financial life. This practice from the Daoist mystical tradition even helped him find love. Today, Nate is sharing his journey and is the author of the book The Standing Meditation.
