Forget Who You Are


Today I got interviewed by a journalist for a Forbes article and one of the questions was:

“Should we always strive to change our ways to accommodate the demands of our professional aspirations? After all, we shouldn’t lose ourselves in pursuit of success, correct?”

This was my response:

“I love your final question. “We shouldn’t lose ourselves in the pursuit of success?”. The western world has similar terms like “Be yourself”. “Stick to your roots”. “Don’t forget where you came from”. Have you ever stopped to think about who you really are? Where is this thing you call the self? The self doesn’t exist, it’s merely your clinging to an identity built up of stories about the past.
