How To Want What's Good For Us- Luke Burgis

n this conversation we dive deep into why people want what they want.

Luke explains that It’s all based on the notion that, in the end, we will either be masters or slaves of our desires and that we can choose the outcome. True freedom is the freedom to want what is best for ourselves and for others. Luke was at a point in his life where he had all the trappings of external success but felt he was on autopilot. Just wanting what everyone else wants not what he truly wanted.  When the biggest business deal of his life fell through, he weirdly felt a sense of relief. He went on to study human behaviour and how mimetic desire works. This ultimately set him free and on to a path of real meaning.
