Different approach on this episode, and talk about the importance of staying hungry and how that requires a world that is dynamic.
There is NO such thing as a fixed status.
This was inspired by Arnold.
He reminds us to stay hungry, but the presupposition here is that you had to become Hungry.
To truly be hungry you need to know what it’s like to have nothing.
To be a have not.
To be rock bottom.
Let’s look at one of the most important dynamics in Life:
- Being at the top
- Being at the bottom
People inherently don’t want to be at the “bottom” and want to get to the “top”, but in this episode, we explore why they both exist, and why this differential is absolutely critical for Life to exist.
The benefits of being rock bottom, or down & out include:
The upsides of starting at the top are great.
But they miss out on the depth that you experience and build from being at the bottom. By eliminating the top & bottom, and forcing everyone into a lukewarm middle, we miss the best of both side.
In our attempt to remove the pain, we remove the meaning & numb the benefits.
The bottom is extraordinarily important. It’s where you build depth, and the lower you go, the higher you can rise. And the broader the range, the richer the life.
We’ve been conditioned to believe that struggle is something we should avoid, and this conformity through comfort is a disease that makes you weak.
Hunger has its place. It makes you strong, it makes you worthy.
