This is an inspiring talk to me and is something I’ve been thinking about lately. Striving for perfection vs. living in the world that is right now. In this talk, Harry says that while he feels like he was able to achieve 80-90% freedom, while most people muddle around 10-30% freedom levels. He says that since he was able to live a mostly free life in an unfree world, so can anyone else.
Here’s an important quote from his talk:
“I did not do everything that I wanted to accomplish. I did not become everything that I wanted to be. But because I reached for the stars, I still was able to reach the top of the world.”
What about you? Have you been able to bring the kind of freedom and peace he is talking about into your life? Are you letting others decide your life for you or are you living life on your own terms?
