  1. --- So what do you think I should do to understand all this thing better? All this ego and self-actualization and everything. Up until now, I feel that it is complete useless. Maybe I don't understand it well. Maybe I'm too young. I don't know. What Leo videos can I watch? Or other people? Or something? I want to make a decision if I want to dig deeper here.
  2. Yeah,, If I understood the question I'll give you some.. 1. Being more focused. I am thinking a lot and it pisses me off. Sometimes I think so much it just ruins things. Destroys the mood, wastes time. If I could feel more calm, collected, focused, present, I would feel great. 2. Being a lot more productive. Because of my thoughts and laziness I procrastinate a lot. If I could reduce it, it would be awesome. 3. Improve social skills. I've been a really shy guy a year~two ago. I improved my skills a lot. But there is still room for improvement. I would feel really well because it something that used to bother me back then. Oh come on man, can you say somdthing helpful? As you see I don't really understand all these terms good. (I know that ego is the "me", ego-death is stopping everything, thougths and things like that, I guess) Isn't self-actualization suposed to be the top goal for each person? I have no idea what's the big difference. In self-developpment you develop yourself. In self-actualization you develop yourself to the point where you don't really have to? (something like that) Umm, okay.. So self-actualization is ego-death?
  3. Leo made a video "A Rant Against The Pickup Community". In the description he wrote that it limits is from self-actualizing or something like that. How exactly? If that what a person wants to do, isn't that self-actualizing? Of damn.. I am trying to understand this site and channel for a very long time. It's difficult. My brain can't just proccess all the videos and information without doubting and asking questions. Maybe I'll stop with all of this. Too difficult for me. I waste a lot of time. I like a straight-forward approach to life.
  4. So, self-actualization is becoming whatever I want to become fully?
  5. So, shortly, you say that if I want to become a confident person, then it's like self-actualization for me? I'm still a bit confused. I looked online and found this: 12 Characteristics of a Self-Actualized Person "Self-acutalized people embrace the unknown", what if I don't want to embrace the unknown?
  6. Hey guys. I only recently found out what self-actualization really means (From the internet and from one of Leo's videos). And I have an important question. What does self-actualizing really mean? I, personally, have always wanted to become the best version of myself. Now I heard about self-actualization and to be honest it wasn't really inspiring. Why you may ask? Because I don't feel good about it. I want to be the best version of myself, it may sound like self-actualization but it's really not that. Self-actualization from what I understood is raising to my full potential. But what if I don't want to raise to my full potential? What if I want to get to my full potential in the aspects of my own? Do whatever I want? It looks like someone already chose what are the qualities of the "self-actualized" person. I just don't feel that everyone is the same. I don't know, really. I just don't feel good about it.
  7. I am in school Leo, and no, nobody teaches us taking notes here in my country, we don't do this thing here. I discovered it through the internet mainly. Maybe people do it in university or something, I'm still in highschool so I have no idea.
  8. Let's say for example that I would like to take notes on your videos. I can't underline anything, I have to write. What do I do then? I have to somehow take notes. It sounds to me like the same concept. I remember you said to take notes on a lot of things. I don't know how it's possible here. I need to somehow scan for the best information but I am just in a fear that I will miss something.
  9. I was trying to summarize the book so that I could get to it back later to refresh my memory. There is just so much information. How can I do it only from the top lessons?
  10. I find it difficult to take notes on books. I just write a lot. I once read a 200 pages book and my notes were 20 pages long. I have no idea how to shorten it. I just feel sometimes that alot of information is important and I don't wanna miss it. What do you think?
  11. I'd buy the life purpose course
  12. But why do they do this so often (even every 10 minutes according to Deida), isn't it enough?
  13. I mean, think about it. The point of chasing self-actualization is to rise to our full potential, but is it even possible? We are always flawed, how can we even something like that? How can the journy to self-actualization end? It's not possible, it's a never-ending journy. This thougth bothered me lately. Hope I'll get some answers.
  14. This chapter talks about tests of women. Deida tells us that women often test men (in the relationship) to see the "Shiva" in a man, to see his strength and calmness. But something here is not sitting in my head. (For example, a man comes home and tells his wife he won million dollar. The wife responds like it's nothing and keeps going, that's a test). Is it actually true? If so, why do women do this? I just feel it's pretty dumb. I understand all the book chapters so far except this one, it's just sound stupid. Can you give some explaining?
  15. I'll quote a few lines from the book: "Everything in your life, from your diet to your career, must be aligned with your purpose if you are to act with coherence and integrity in the world". What does David Deida tries to tell us? He said that even our diet should be according to our purpose. Does it mean that if the gym (related to diet as well) is not aligned with my purpose, then it is a waste of time kind of? What do you think? I'm so confused right now.
