Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom

I have noticed a trend in our culture: We like to go for the sexy stuff first. Or what we view as the sexy stuff. We want instant results but we don’t want to put in the work to get it. When it comes to self-development and peak performance, many people are obsessed with “hacking”. Personally, I don’t really vibe with the term. I get the idea of short-cuts when it comes to shopping, or parking my car, or paying my credit card bill.

But hacking and short-cuts when it comes to self-development and peak performance is hugely counter-productive. Imagine a tree with no roots. The first gust of wind blows it down. Imagine learning surfing, and going straight to the north shore of Hawaii. You are going to suffer. A lot.

So what is this foundation of mastery? What are the roots of sustainable high performance?

Self-knowledge. As Aristotle said, “Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom”. He knew what was up. He knew about roots and self-awareness.

LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE if you want to build yourself from the bottom up. If you want to get started on building this solid foundation… Flowstate is launching a powerful program January 29th.
