- [Interviewer] So we're talking about, sort of, well being and being better. You've got the word greatness in your book, unlocking greatness in your podcast with the same name, Unlocking Greatness. What exactly do you mean by greatness here? - [Charlie Harary] So, what I'm talking about greatness is sort of emotional feeling. It's an intangible sense of empowerment that somebody feels that they're doing what they should be doing. And, as a result, there's like an internal feeling of greatness that I feel like I am living a life that's not just average. I'm living a life that's not just survival. Or good. I'm living a life that I am feeling that great feeling inside me. Through the book, we try to make the case that greatness isn't necessarily what the world tells you you are. It's not the medal they put around your neck or the grade they give after your name. It's your own approach towards life. And it exists in a much more of a micro perspective but what I'm trying to get at is a certain feeling of empowerment that people have that they need to tap into and unlock as a way to live their lives in every day of their lives. - [Interviewer] Okay. So, this notion on doing what I should be doing. That is nice when you have those moments. And, so, please do tell, how does one have more of those moments? - [Charlie] So a lot of it comes down to an approach towards life. Understanding what you have in your mind, understanding that a lot of what you're feeling is really not based on the world around you. It's based on your perception of that world, right? The scheme up you will is a way in which you process the world. And, so, a lot of what we're experiencing isn't directly affecting our feelings. It passes through our scheme up. And when you take control it, first off when you know it exists and how it happens and how it works and how your mind works and you learn how you can manipulate and move and train your mind to make life and your goals more accessible, you can start to realize that the feeling of greatness is really the opportunities that are in front of you and how you react towards them. And your perspective on what's in front of you. And that sort of way of life and then you just sort of couple upon that your way your brain works starts to condition people to see challenges opportunities see things that are in front of them as ways to grow and get better, small micro ways, which then conditions their behavior, which then allows them to feel more empowered which then sort of creates the cascade of feeling great on a daily basis.
