On this episode of the Spartan Up! podcast, AngelList Founder Naval Ravikant tells Spartan founder and CEO Joe De Sena that it all boils down to desire.
Is it possible to tame your monkey mind, the part of you that is constantly distracted by the desires and pleasures that will only soothe you in the short-term? Ravikant says it's not only possible, but in fact necessary to reach a true sense of happiness.
Ravikant also explains how to find your true calling, and why doing so will give you the upper hand in any business or personal venture. You become unbeatable. Success may involve years of hard work, but paradoxically, not much struggle. Instead, it’s about a quest for flow. How can we tap into that flow? Ravikant will show you.
