Just to give you a taste of how you might attain some level of ‘thinking differently’, here are few of his quotes:
“The world just reflects your own feelings back at you. Reality is neutral.”
“Desire to me is a contract that you make with yourself to be unhappy until you get what you want”
“The way to get out of the competition trap is actually to be authentic. The way to retire is actually to find the thing that you know how to do better than anybody. And, you know how to do that better than anybody because you love to do it”
“School, politics, sports, and games train us to compete against others. True rewards — wealth, knowledge, love, fitness, and equanimity — come from ignoring others and improving ourselves.”
“Doctors won’t make you healthy. Nutritionists won’t make you slim. Teachers won’t make you smart. Gurus won’t make you calm. Mentors won’t make you rich. Trainers won’t make you fit. Ultimately, you have to take responsibility. Save yourself.“
