Kapil + Moe explore why the game of life is fundamentally flawed and how a state of equanimity can give you a glimpse of the Truth.
The Truth About Self-Worth
No more inspired way to kick off 2019 than with an important conversation with Kapil Gupta about the myths and truths of self-worth. Regardless of how you define it, the way you think about and see yourself on the inside is a mirror to how the world sees you on the outside. Certainly, some are better than others at faking or hiding it; still none of us are immune to the emotional turmoil that comes with a self-image that’s always evolving.
As with all of our conversations, don’t expect to hear prescriptions or conventional thinking; but listen closely to the manner in which Kapil describes his pursuit of the ultimate freedom. Here’s a sampling of the insights you can expect to hear:
- Self-worth is like chasing a ghost - a self-image that’s largely unknown.
- Whenever you have rules, you have problems.
- Comparing yourself to others is the road to mediocrity and a sure sign of regression.
- While mentorship shrinks the learning curve, it’s also a consensus trap.
- Superstars don’t achieve continual excellence by following technique - they discover a form of alchemy that works for them and actualize it.
- The content of your mind is irrelevant
- There’s only misery, there’s only suffering - and that is because nothing lasts.
- The elite individual in any domain is the individual who is first and foremost - free.
- When you have an uncompromising vision, you’re living a life of purity.
- When a human being has no need, he is free - and when he is free, he becomes untouchable - he becomes a legend.
