In Order To CHANGE YOUR LIFE In 2023, You Need To DO THESE 3 Things First! | Yuval Noah Harari
As someone on the path of major self-growth, these conversations are key in stretching your mind, changing your beliefs, and begging you to question how you want to live your life and exist in a rapidly changing world. Artificial intelligence has become more front and center in the past few weeks with A.I. art and AI generated images becoming virtually inescapable.
What can you do to thrive during these massive changes? Yuval Noah Harari is a historian and the bestselling author of the books that include Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind. His book for kids, Unstoppable Us, Volume 1: How Humans Took Over the World is a NY Times Best Book of 2022. Yuval is also a professor of History at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and the co-founder of the social impact company Sapienship.
In this episode the conversation gets deep between the need for your mental flexibility, how much narrative is influencing the world we experience, and the best way you can embrace change.
“It is much worse psychologically to feel worthless than to feel exploited” -Yuval Noah Harari

“We have to keep learning and keep changing throughout our lives otherwise we will be left behind.”
“Old jobs disappear, but new jobs emerge. The real difficult thing will be the transition.” “Almost all people are liberal. Even the conservatives…”
“The ideological differences are small on the ground, but they are very big in people’s imagination. People have fantasies about what the other side is planning to do which are completely divorced from reality.”
“Fantasies often shape history and cause people to do terrible things.” “Instead of leaders who are trying to heal the national community you see leaders that try to destroy it and get power by kind of leading just one tribe.”
“I think the big narrative is the biological narrative that we are all homo sapiens, that we all have the same basic experiences, [...] these are things that are common to all humans.”
“A sacred place is a place plus a story about the place, and this is at the bottom of most conflicts in the world.”
“On the level of the body, we can relate to every other human being in the world because biologically we are all the same. What creates this huge distance between us is the fantasies that the mind imagines and produces.”
