      if it wasn't for Robert Greene I don't think I've ever would have really managed getting ahead in my career. This is also the knowledge that nobody teaches you just like financial literacy, manners, communication, and general psychology. I just want to say I do really appreciate the content you put out here from all the great people you interview and for being such a great human being yourself. Listening to this podcast each morning while I'm on my way to work and at work is really, really helpful in my life. And I can definitely imagine the impact you're having on everybody else's lives with the content you put out. Thank you very much again. 💯👍🏾👍🏾 Stay blessed 🙏🏾

    Robert Greene is the epitome of the wounded healer. So humble in the way he comes across. He is becoming one of my top favorite speakers. This is one of his best interviews as well.

    Hi Steven, I just wanted to let you know whenever I'm in the car, mowing the lawn, or doing a workout, I listen to your podcasts. Your interview style really brings the best out of your always interesting guests (including Robert) It would be difficult to properly express the amount of ways your work has helped me in every facet of my life. From work and relationships, to purpose and lifestyle. Thank you. Daniel

    • Luc Castermans
      Luc Castermans 2 months ago +64

      Shield or weapon… it should not be used as a core element in your life’s navigation. Shaping life with this as it’s root will never open you up and experience life as you should. It’s the wrong type of anchor imo. You should always search for the beauty of things, not the ugly.

    I guess Robert Greene really came from a loving family background because someone who lived through that traumatized childhood and teenage times will never want to experience that kind of life if they’ve had the choice to leave. The people who turned their most painful memories into something contributing to the society, being a better person will never say, it’s okay to experience those bad things, you’ll grow up more and be more fruitful.

    I remember on TikTok, the community was trying to scare people with his books and its power. But this really humanizes it all despite the legitimacy of that power.

    This interview was phenomenal. I purchased , “48 Laws of Power” in 2016 and after reading the titles put it on the shelf because I saw it as a ‘sword’ instead of seeing it as a ‘shield’. I appreciate what he shared about narcissism and how to shift that energy outward. By the end of the interview, I felt an overwhelming feeling of gratitude and am so thankful YT recommended this video. I immediately subscribed.

      I read them of course, they are the two most powerful books I've read. I realized probably the best way to utilize the principles, which are ageless and universal, is to re-read the most relevant (to me) parts until they're imbedded (takes less effort than you'd think).

    Thank you for talking about becoming handicapped. A botched hip replacement 4+ years ago made my life miserable. Other surgeons said it is too risky to correct. I'm finally having revision surgery in 6 days by a hip replacement revision specialist. I'm finally feeling my life isn't over yet. Hearing Robert's experience makes me realize how lucky I am, and I look forward to making a comeback at age 70. I praise and give thanks to God and my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who I came to know only a year ago!

  • Tell Me Something Good

    I really enjoy this podcast and appreciate all of the unseen elements involved in creating it. It’s not really your genre but I’d love to learn the behind the scenes of what the roles of 30 staff look like in order to produce your show. Perhaps a special episode?
    I appreciate your commitment to providing quality interviews and authentic interactions. They provide me with insights that matter in my own life and inspiration.
    I’d like to offer a learning moment that I saw at approx. 1:30 ish.
    Robert shared such a beautiful reframe of his stroke story that moved me to tears and it appeared you completely missed it. You sped forward with a question on your list about losing power. It felt jarring and lacking of compassion. So much so that it took me out of the moment to share my observation with you.
    That was IMHO the most powerful moment of the whole two hours. It deserved a pause and your receiving of it would have really honored him for sharing it. I believe could have inspired in you an opportunity to connect more deeply which would have demonstrated mastery in your own work.
    Wishing you the best as you continue to grow your craft!

    Wow I almost didn't watch because I was trying to get to sleep early, but I'm grateful I did. 10 min in and I couldn't stop. I am taking this all in like a sponge. Fascinating interview and love the realness from this channel always. Also, the part ab men's "cheapness of spirit for not wanting to treat a woman/not deeming her worthy" struck such a chord for me. I just recently went on a date with a man who asked to split the check...I thought it was fine in the moment, but Robert is absolutely right. It was a massive turn off and I am so glad my intuition helped me leave his tight ass in the dust :)

    What a fantastic and insightful interview! This man is wonderfully honest and frank, something that is truly missing from todays people in government office and politicians. He would make a great president for the American peopke because he understands how to motivate people and give insight. He is also obviously a great thinker and instinctively seems to know the right path to take. As a side note on his talking about depression, how important it is to have someone special in your life. Adding to that get yourself a pet, a dog that will love you and not judge you no matter what. That unconditional love is something really special ❤

You said "go into a field that offers the most learning opportunity" at 40 I landed a job in the tech field, completely opposite of where I've always been, and only because of the endless opportunities to learn. I've never been happier. That warmed my heart to hear. We need more people like you Robert.

    I've been watching for 4 consecutive days now on your channel. I've learned a lot. Write it down, process the thoughts, questions myself about my own opinion about the topics. I'm so glad this platform exist. I've been on the process of knowing myself clearly and being straightforward with my negative traits because I really wanted to change and grow for more better version of myself. I'm 35. And sometimes, I had this regret, because I feel like I've wasted so many years. I wish I had been wise at 17, or 20. I had a lot of trauma growing up. From my parents seperation to failed marriage, to single parenting. Fighting my own darkside while I didn't have any idea how to raise my kids while I had them early at a young age. Looking back, I can say, I'm now in the stage of my life to be really brutally honest so that I can heal. Thank you for this! I really appreciate all the member of the team, even I didn't know them, you and all the guests! Salamat! From The Philippines. ❤❤❤

      Don't worry about that. Nobody's wise at 17-20 ))) Even if they're absolutely sure that they are. Wisdom requires experiences. A lot of 'em. Especially the negative ones. The losses and the heartbreaks, moments of hopelessness and overcoming those - that's what makes you wise... or it breaks you... But if it doesn't - it does make you very wise for sure))

    I had a stroke 7 months into my pregnancy and I love how you describe the serendipitousness because there was medical stuff in my body brewing that all came to a head and in the moment it happened I was there with someone when usually at that time I wouldn’t have been or I would’ve been driving. Losing that freedom forces you to find the appreciation of your life. The worst was feeling so hopeful and working hard to recover only to find you’ve hit the ceiling, you will never be the same and you’ve got to make peace with it.

      @x y z Me too. I spent my time learning about stocks and investment. I'm no expert, but the time out was wonderful and it allowed me to carve out a career working from home. I have interviews coming up with some major companies and they are going to have to bargain with me big time. It's on my terms and if they're not willing to bend I'm not going to offer my expertise. None of that would have happened without lockdown.

    Ive been doing this without knowing this is seduction, I have sooo many people to call friends and they are all nice, I can say I'm surrounded with good people but also... being open and being extra kind, generous and open has left me drained many times and I have to get back up again, picking myself up to maintain the energy I was giving. If I'm not in the mood, I dont go out hahahaha or else I'd ruin everybody's day, that's how powerful a seducer is.. I know I affect other people's mood by my behavior, so I try to always just give and be nice but it is draining. It is good but comes with inner strength.

      @The Diary Of A CEO I’ve not finished watching the entire interview…. But have enjoyed it thoroughly thus far. People such as yourself are the reason that old people, like me, have come back to youtube. It is no longer a baron wasteland of nothing but click bait and banal grabs for notoriety. Rather, a forum for which long form conversation and genuine desire to arrive at some kind of understanding seems to be becoming increasingly prevalent. So, Thank you.
      I now aspire to becoming noteworthy enough to be a guest. Keep up the amazing work.

    Thank you both so much for this fantastic interview. Mr. Greene is so honest and human. It feels so good to listen to somebody who is not wearing a mask. Being seductive for a woman I think is being very intelligent, confident and wise, so it's something impossible to fake. People have to work hard to build these skills. I can relate to valuing the small things as I haven't been able to walk for a year now and don't know if I ever will again. I am only 47 years old. I can't even stand up or even crawl. And I now see how lucky people are and they don't know or see it.

      @Josh It's true Josh. We are blind until a situation like that opens our eyes. We have to thank what we have all the time. There is a saying in Portuguese: "Agradece que a graça cresce." It means: Every time you are thankful, your blessings will grow. And this is a way to grow our luck.

    Yes to cheapness in spirit when a guy takes you out and expects you to pay. He never gets another date and it's not about being a gold digger at all. It's about showing me that you're kind and have a good heart and that you can make me feel secure. Women want to know that they can rely on their mate when the time comes and financial reliance might be needed. For instance, when she just gave birth and is recovering/taking care of babies, etc.

  • James Davies
    James Davies Month ago +49

    Seduction isn't about playing mind based games, as Robert Greene suggests. The basis of seduction is attraction. Attraction is based on how you make other people feel. If you feel calm, relaxed, happy, confident, etc, it helps others feel the same in your company. Learning to love yourself properly by exercising, eating, and drinking healthily, meditating, and spiritual growth are so important in developing into the kind of person that others want to spend time with. They take time to develop and involve being on your own. Attracting the right person into your life will just happen naturally after that.
