Naval Ravikant tells Joe De Sena Taming Your Desires Makes You Unbeatable

Angel List Founder Naval Ravikant tells Spartan Race CEO and founder Joe De Sena 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 it's 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. 


 1. If you want to be the best, you need to pick one thing to be the best at.

 2. The ones who succeed are the ones who are irrationally passionate about what they’re doing.

 3. Happiness is the sense that nothing is missing in this moment.
