The Successful Mind Podcast – Inside Episode 387 – Know Thyself

Today BT and I are going deeper into what it means to “know thyself.”

Knowing yourself—and understanding why you want the things you want (i.e., your motives) is everything. By NOT having this understanding, you risk blindly going through life, reacting to everything without understanding why.

In today’s episode we discuss: 


    • Why it’s important to know yourself and understand how you’re perceiving things
    • You’re the center of your own universe—and nobody else is observing things in the same way YOU’RE observing them
    • You either see yourself as a victim life…or you don’t (and the difference between the two)
    • Your perception is based on the meanings that were given to you about the things you’re perceiving
    • What we can learn about truth versus falsehood from the movie, “The Silence of the Lambs”
    • Why Vernon Howard was such a huge influence on my own personal growth—and how he helped me learn more about my behaviors, my ways of thinking, and my judgements (which I had no clue were there)
    • Good books to read to understand stoic philosophy and how to keep things simple


There’s an old stoic saying: “Know the truth and the truth will set you free.” There’s a very different energy about the truth…versus a “story” you’re convinced is true.

Do you know yourself and why you do the things you do?
