Have you ever had one of those moments where you’re like, ‘I thought this is what I wanted, but now that I have it, it’s not making me as happy as I imagined’?
And then you have to go readjust your ideas about what actually makes you feel good versus what you assumed would bring you joy.
A lot of this tension between expectations and reality could be avoided altogether if we took the time upfront to deeply know ourselves.
Self-knowledge lights the path we want to walk. It steadies us when the mind starts making excuses or trying to justify choices that merely feel familiar but don’t exactly nurture our spirit.
Because guess what? Most frustration and feelings of being stuck come from not knowing ourselves deeply enough in the first place.
So the question is, how do we get this kind of clarity? That’s what we’re talking about today.
Our guest is Ryan Bush. He is a designer and thinker focused on building better systems, better people, and a better future. He is a practical philosopher, founder of Designing the Mind, and author of the forthcoming book, “Become Who You Are: A New Theory of Self-Esteem, Human Greatness, and the Opposite of Depression.”
