MONK MENTALITY – Jay Shetty – One Of The Best Speeches EVER | MOST INSPIRING!

The greatest power
to be self-controlled
To be able to train the mind and energy to focus it exactly where you want it, and when you want it to be
You are completely detached and undeterred from external ups and downs
You’re able to navigate anything that seems
tough challenging fun excitement with the same amount of being equipoised and balanced an equanimity
without being too excited in pleasure
or being too depressed in pain
Of knowing how to navigate every situation to me, that’s great strength and great power
What people don’t know about me is that I was suspended from school three times for
Trying out all sorts of things like things that people would never imagine if someone who goes on to be a monk
I was experimenting with all the drugs in the world I had multiple relationships
I was really trying to search for some sort of meaning
Fulfillment and as far as long as I’ve known I’ve been chasing thrill
I really value thrill and feeling like it might not see that coming
Ya know not many people do it’s it’s very different from 14 to 18
I was like this kid who just wanted to try new things out and
My parents rhetoric would always be well make sure you get good grades
And I used to think well if I can be bad and get good grades, and then it’s all works
where everyone’s happy so that’s that’s kind of what I did and
At 18. I was really fortunate when I met a monk
and this monk was invited to speak and
I kind of just went because one of my friends forced me to at that time
I was missing the CEOs and entrepreneurs and
business people and marketers you who I thought that’s what I was aspiring to be like and then I had this monk and
He captivated me like no one had ever captivated me before
It was like staring at the most beautiful woman on the planet. You know I was completely fixated on him and his message and
That is the beginning without me going into too much detail before we plug
That was the beginning of what changed me
because I went from being someone who did only want all those things to become successful and
Trying to but I started hearing my own inner voice
Much more and all that noise that I had around me
I remember one of my my parents had a maths tutor for me because I wanted to be amazing at math and
I was I was pretty good at numbers
and I’d have this tutor and he’d tell me that he goes the reason that you’re struggling with the next question is
Because you’re always worried about what your parents think
And and that really stayed in my head
I was just like wow so as long as I’m trapped by what my parents think I can actually never find the answers to the
Real questions of life and there are all these little things happening
I lost two great friends when I was 16 one girl died in a car accident
One guy died because he was involved in drugs and violence
That that made me rethink everything. I just thought to myself wait a minute these were beautiful people
people that I loved
People that in my opinion were good people, and I just lost them in a moment
And it was kind of like this collation of little things that just made me think wait a minute having money having Fame
this that
Just doesn’t seem to add up and then and then meeting the monk kind of made that shift possible and as I said he was
Completely captivating and then I found out that he’d given up jobs in Google and Microsoft to be a monk
And I thought to myself who does that you know?
He’s given up everything that I’m chasing and they’re all my friends are chasing, but he seems happy of anyone
I’ve ever met before and he spoke about this incredible principle where he said that we should plant
Under whose shade we do not plan to sit
And he was speaking about this principle of selfless sacrifice and that kind of just
Penetrated me right there when he said the words
Selfless sacrifice for the first time in my life, I felt a thrill about something that I’d never felt before it oh wow
Giving up everything you have for the service of others
sounds like the best thing you could possibly do and I don’t know why I had that thought because I wasn’t a
Spiritual kid growing up. I wasn’t a religious kid growing up. I wasn’t even a good kid growing up
I was just a rebel atmosphere trying things out and
Experimental which I still consider myself and so what I started to do is I was interning
At companies and firms and corporates thinking I was getting a grad job afterwards
And then I’d spend the rest of my summer holidays interning in India living with him as a monk
So I’d use all my summer and Christmas holidays to just be out there with the monks
And he introduced me to another 200 to 500 monks
They were just like him just as smart. Just as bright giving up everything
They had and using all their skills to make the world a better
I believe the moment was I was I’ve always had friends who are older than me and
I could see a lot of them in the most successful careers successful jobs
Beautiful partners whatever it was but I saw a sense of lack of fulfillment meaning and purpose in their lives
I’ve always been an observer and I would see these people are like five years older than me seven years old many maybe 10 years
Older than me, and I’d be watching them and go is that the life. I want and often the advice
I give to people today is
Fast-forward where you are look at yourself in 10 15 20 years time and ask yourself the question is that where I want to be
If you’re in a company look at the person who’s 20 years ahead of you and ask yourself is that where I want to be
if you’re in a start-up
Look at where other startups have got to in similar roles and go is that where I want to be and if the answer’s no
Then you need to find a new part and for me the answer at that time
from observing was no the path that my parents or
Society or the university I went to or the community. I had that was carving out for me
it didn’t feel like the path for me, so I was almost seeking an
alternative or a new path
I was just so
Fortunate that it happened to be an uplifting powerful path as opposed to something that could have actually taken me down the wrong road
Because that could have been possible, too
So we wake up he’s like one of the most elite months, so we’re waking up at like 2 a.m.
Every day after sleeping at like 9 or 10 p.m.
And then we study these ancient Vedas which are 5000 plus years old together, and we spend two hours
I’m studying with the best of the best here, so he can like analyze and assimilate
And I’m learning fast taking notes then 4:00 a.m.. We go to collective meditation
We do those practice fears with the other monks as well 6 a.m.
We have personal meditation
So I’m literally going through the life of a monk and falling in love with it step by step going well
I’ve never had this experience before I just drew myself in and I was practicing it to the tee
Right it wasn’t like oh no my back hurts when I sit on the floor
I can’t stay here for too long, or you know today when people are like oh, I can’t meditate for longer than two minutes
I was like no I’m gonna do it for two hours
If that’s what they’re doing I’m gonna give it a go because I can only test
The hypothesis will only be true if the experiment is carried out to the degree that they are
So the hypothesis is if you live like this you’ll are happy more fulfilled
Then I want to do that. I think even one step before that is
Opening yourself up to new role models and new experiences
See we live in echo chambers. We’re just surrounded by the same thinking how often do you bump into a monk?
You know it just doesn’t happen. You don’t have no one has a dinner party and goes
Oh, yeah
We didn’t buy the monk you know from a town like the local monk like no one ever does that and so
You meet people who are just like us most of the time?
and we talk about this in business Woollett if you want to be a billionaire spend time with billionaires if you want to be a
millionaire spent on millionaires if you want to be a
Tech startup spend time with you know, that’s that’s the common rhetoric that we hear all the time
But what if you want to find purpose and master the mind?
There’s no one better than a monk who’s mastered the mind so for me the first step is just
Opening yourself up to new experiences, and new role models because most of us can’t see ourselves in
People so then we try and fit ourselves into the boxes that we do see
And and I mean there’s this beautiful quote that I’ve been saying it everywhere, and I wish I wrote it
But I didn’t so it’s by a philosopher and writer named Cooley, and he said that today
I’m not what I think I am. I’m not what you think I am I am what I think you think I am I?
Understand that blow your mind from now. It’s so powerful. I’m not what I think I am
I’m not what you think I am I am what I think you think I am
So we live in this perception of a perception of ourselves
Hence my identity is made by what my parents think I should be
My identity is made up by what my college or university thinks I should achieve
While you’re living in that bubble and that echo chamber
Getting to what you really want to do is impossible
Because maybe that just doesn’t fit
And I think so many people feel that way today that they don’t fit into the current education system
They don’t fit with the three or four or five careers that you’re taught exist
so that process of self excavation and actualization
First requires being exposed you can’t be what you can’t see if I never saw a monk
I would never have wanted to be among if I never meet a billionaire
I wouldn’t want to be one
because I wouldn’t know what that feels like I don’t know what it looks like I don’t know what it takes and
I think that’s the biggest challenge of our society that we’re not exposed so that’s the first step being exposed to unique
experiences and role models
Second step is finding that experience overall model that you’re passionate about and exactly like you said taking it seriously
shatter their network with them spend time with them observe them even from afar it takes that observation being
addicted to observing that person’s lifestyle and
Then the third step is going yes, or not does that work for me
Not everyone who’s gonna go up from become a monk is gonna. Feel like the way I did and that’s cool
But not everyone is gonna go and follow and shadow a billion anger that’s exactly the lifestyle
I want then the result but do they want the hard work that goes with it and so for me
That’s the third step its observing
Focusing shadowing getting as close to the process of that individual and then going yes or no do I want that process
Not do I want the result ever wants to be that monk who’s fully enlightened
You know can walk through as an incredible or that people just gravitate
Towards, but when you realize he has to wake up at 2:00 a.m.. Every day and sleeps about 4 to 6 hours
You like that you know
That doesn’t sound like me
It’s more like a training system than it is a lifelong commitment
It is bringing that mindset into the real world where you get to test it now
I got to do that for real when I left being a monk around five years ago and
When I left it was like oh my god. I’m in the real world now again real world
I have to think about how to apply all this I’m gonna test for real
All this stuff that I’ve learned and I was scared like I was nervous
I was anxious and all those things that I’ve been trained not to be
Rushed back
For the first time in my life
I had to really put it into practice
And I love that feeling I’m so glad that I had to do that so for me. Actually the mind set is completely
Trainable to bring it into the real world. That’s that’s what I’m trying to do
And what it allows you to do is it allows you to bring clarity and perspective when you need it
Because you know when you can just take a bird’s-eye view from something
You know when you need to get close into something. You know when you need to pull back from something
There’s a beautiful verse in the Bhagwad Gita. That says that
Detachment is not that you owe nothing
detachment is that nothing owns you and
I love it because to me that summarizes detachment in a way that it’s not usually explained
Usually people see detachment as being away from everything
Actually the greatest detachment is being close to everything and not letting it consume and own you and that’s real power
That’s real strength
How many people do we know that have had fame and then that fame has ruined them so for me that definition of detachment?
Is possible to practice even in the real world rather than saying oh, I’m just gonna have a really simple life
I’m just gonna have nothing in life
The best part about being a monk is that your morning routine and practices are so powerful that you can
actually aspire for
more incredible values in life
because your mind is clear because your mind is clear and you have
That ability to have more clarity so you can seek that which is which is higher
So I’ll give an example of what I’m defined. Yes. Are we about to define? What is higher? Yes exactly so for me
Being able to overcome
Ego being able to overcome envy being able to overcome jealousy
Being able able to overcome the negative of competitive state
There’s a positive competitive state and there’s a negative
Competitive state today when people are looking on Instagram or Facebook or YouTube all you’re looking at is
She got that many likes or he got that many likes she got engaged or he got married or
Oh my god
Look at her body or look at that, and it’s like that stuff’s destroying us inside and the jealousy ego greed
To be able to have enough clarity to purify yourself of those things is going to alleviate
the biggest anxieties and depressions of our time and mental health problems and
And we know that we know that because all the mental health research today suggests that things like isolation
Overexposure we now can have more pain
Consumption in one day because of what we were exposed to then the pain we would have had in a lifetime
That’s huge. I thought that’s ridiculous to think that one day because of the media in social media
We consume more negative than we did in a lifetime for me being able to have time
energy and clarity to focus on self purification
That is the best thing about being a monk because you have that time
Reflection and a process and an environment that only allows you to become more purified of those things
So in an ideal life for me is a life and this applies to a company and organization and institution for me is
An ideal life is when we all have a head a heart and a hand all three elements together
Working in alignment without one of the other we start to lose something if you only have a head in a heart
You’ll find that life is stable so ahead is the clarity of vision?
What you want?
Knowing what you want the way you picture life and being able to navigate make the decisions to get there
That’s a good head a good heart is
Being able to understand what your intuition and heart one’s being able to connect and tap it into that
Understanding deeper and beyond the vision you may have painted for yourself
So I often say to people that you get to where you want in life just not in the way you imagined and that’s because
The path that’s paved up and down is far different to the path
We pave so you can have a great head and a great vision and a great mission and know where you want to go
but if your heart’s not able to have that resilience and be able to adapt and
And have compassion and care and all of that then then you’re not going to be able to make the toughest decisions without your heart
but to be able to
Realize that we need to care and be sustainable and long-lasting requires a heart and a hand is that service
Wanting to pass that on that which you have wanting to give it forward pay it forward
The idea of serving with what you have I often say to people your passion is for you your purpose is for others
Your passion makes you happy, but when you use your passion to make a difference in someone else’s life. That’s a service
That’s a purpose and that’s the Hat
So those are my three
elements of an ideal life
So I studied behavioral science and universities I’ve always been fascinated by why people do what they do and
when I was reading these books that are 5000 years old my greatest fascination was finding a principle and
finding its relevance in modern science
And I said to myself the day I can’t find that I’ll quit I won’t believe in this anymore
So I’m still doing that and I’m ready to quit if someone shows me a piece of science
And I can’t find a principal in these ancient literature’s so actually what I like to call these timeless literature’s
then I’ll give up my faith because
For me it has to track forward, and I’ll give you a really basic example today. We’re in the gratitude movement. There’s like a million
Gratitude journals out there. There’s a million scientific studies on gratitude and gratitude has been linked to better mental health
self-awareness better relationships
I mean
There’s so many scientific studies on the on the neural level that shows that gratitude is great for your mind brain and fulfillment
Now I look back
Gratitude is all over the timeless wisdom one of the first things we were trying to do when we were a monk was to pay
Our respects to the earth for what it gives us, and you do that first thing in the morning. What is that?
If not gratitude when you wake up in the morning just thank the earth for the food you thank the earth
For the water you thank the earth for allowing yourself to walk
You start your day with?
Gratitude today the biggest tip on Forbes and ink and everything is start your day with gratitude like where does it come from?
It’s it’s right there these things are old, so I’ll I get fascinated
I’m intrigued by the parallels and patterns because it saves you time
It’s the same way as which if I say that this business person got invested by this company
And that’s why they’re successful because they have the right investors etc
That’s a pattern so I know if I’m building a business in that area. I’m gonna look for investors like that
It’s the same thing that pattern saves you time rather than you trying to figure out does gratitude work. How shall I be grateful?
Creating your own process almost the first answer. I mean I’m a huge fan of the book Thinking Fast and Slow
I don’t know if you’d read it. Yeah. It’s a great book because for me
It’s got a really close patent connection again to what I studied
So just understanding system 1 and system 2 if anyone watching hasn’t read it. I highly recommend. It. Just being able to differentiate between
System 1 and system 2 as Daniel, Kahneman calls it in the Vedic philosophy. We recall differentiating between the mind and the intelligence
Knowing how the differentiy of the voices in your head is the first level of self-awareness?
So break down what system 1 and system 2 are absolutely the system one is your initial response to anything that happens
It’s it’s a stock that I can’t really say so if you say something
I don’t like my system one naturally would be a face that I pull it on like I don’t agree with that
That’s that’s the understanding of what system one, and it’s your initial
Reaction in the moment that can be positive often for example if someone pulls out a knife you feel scared and you run that
System one. That’s a good thing
It’s it’s safe for you, but also system one is someone says something that hurts your ego, and you start defending yourself immediately
That’s also. That’s a negative of system one that we would refer to as the mind
it’s built up of conditioning those responses are conditioned those default elements are all there because of habit and
continuous practice
the system too is more like the intelligence what I would say is more like the
Parent if you can pick and see the system one to be more like a child
System two is more like a parent. It looks more at the long-term
It looks like the bigger picture it processes that default reaction through a set of checking and metrics to decide
Whether that’s true the child is there the one that wants everything right away impatient quickly responding straight away
Reacting when it doesn’t get what he wants the intelligent parent and good one knows what the child wants and needs
And what’s better for in the long?
just starting there and
Being able to reflect and observe the different voices inside of us is a great place to start your self-awareness
Because the biggest challenge is that most of us?
Don’t know what we’re listening to and we don’t most of us. Don’t even know that there are more than one voice inside of us
Just getting over that line is a huge win because now at least you’re trying to differentiate
In what you’re hearing and that’s gonna help you make better decisions in the future so that was answer 1
The biggest challenge is that there’s just so much noise?
It’s like have you ever had someone in your home. Maybe it’s your wife or maybe it’s a friend or whatever
Just play a really bad song too often
You just play a song and just think I’ll turn that off and after a while
It’s been on for so long that you become immune to it like it’s just there and it’s still on
It’s there in the back of your mind
And you didn’t manage to turn it off so the noise that I describe in life. Whether it’s your parents expectations
whether it’s
society’s expectations
Whether it’s your partner’s expectations all of those are like noise in the background and that noise drowns out
your ability to understand the mind and the intelligence that’s one of the biggest trip ups I
Was looking at I gave a presentation called build a life, not a resume
It’s also one of my popular videos, but very good video. Thank you, man
Thank you so much and when I did the research
So you don’t see this in the video because this research didn’t make it into the video
But the research that I was doing was around the most common resume lies
The truth is over 40 to 50 percent of us lie on our resumes. Yeah, if you don’t you’re missing an opportunity
I’ll just say that yeah
There you go right so and and I started to dig deeper and I was looking at you know a lot of people lie about
their dates of employment so instead of 3 days it’s now 3 months
You know whatever it may be now
I dug deeper and I wanted to meet some of these people and speak to people and so I spoke to people who lie on
Their resumes and we know that at least 40 to 50 percent tell us they do
Another thing is no one was proud of that. No one no one was like yeah. Yeah, I know
Really what it came down to is. We’re really insecure about our own abilities
Really what it came down to is. We’re not confident about what we have to offer when it came down to the lack of self-awareness
What it came down to is a lack of understanding?
What am I good at what am I passionate about what am I bringing to the table? That’s what people were really worried about
They were worried about the job, but when you dug beneath the surface the real behavioral trait
That was coming out was insecurity and being unconfident
About one’s potential that that tells us a lot that indicates a lot about human behavior and human nature that the noise from outside
Makes us want to fit into a container and that
Stops us from differentiating between what is my mind saying and what is my intelligence saying and what happens is that noise becomes your voice?
so that noise becomes what you think is what you’re saying and
Most people don’t realize that until 10 20 30 years down the line we say this all the time
But it applies mostly to this is switching your association
It’s with notation to people that you hang out
Right it’s like changing your circle because if you’re only hearing the same thing from that circle
The only way to turn it off without you having to do mass amounts of reflection is
Changing your circle where you start hearing we all ultimately find the things we want to hear right we know that
So for me
There was two questions that I had to ask myself that really changed what I do
One of my big questions is what advice would I give to my younger self?
It’s huge because I think that’s the stuff that we regret
That’s the stuff that we wish we were doing that’s the stuff that has been lost in the noise
When you ask some what advice, would you give to your younger self the number one answer is I wish I studied this I?
Wish I tried this out. I wish I gave this a go
You know those are the all things that somebody didn’t do yeah
It’s all things that things people didn’t do it’s always like something that either should have just started or
Didn’t continue, and that’s really tapping into someone’s voice
Right that’s really tapping into what someone really wants to do and you’re going way beyond just like Oh. What do you like?
What are you passionate about so hard to answer that sometimes especially if you’re drowning?
Does that add to your questions or what that’s really interesting yet now?
I need to know what your answer was so I used to be
Ice to do a lot of spoken-word when I grew up I read the dictionary and read it to Saurus. I loved language
That’s what I was fascinated by
And for some reason I gave it up then I found out about a monk life became a monk and then almost back ten years
On at 28. I was going I asked myself that question and my answer was I miss words
I miss expressiveness I miss sharing a message and stories through
incredible language and ideas
potential rhymes
But flow and all of these things so that was the answer to my question one of the biggest answers was I wish I never
So how do I find my passion my
Simple model which is the Dharma model it also dharma means eternal duty in the Vedic tradition
It’s very similar to what yoga is being spoken about today
Which is a Japanese version of reason for being? Why do we live?
Where is meaning coming from and it talks about an intersect of four areas what am I good at?
What do I love what is the world need and how do I get paid for it to me those four help you unlock your
passion when you find the intersect across all of those four
You’re making your passion your purpose. You’ll unlock your passion. You’ll find your purpose. This is path one
There’s two paths path one I find my skill set and I engage it to help other people and become better at it
So I’m becoming better what I’m good at and I’m using it to help other people
Because I’m aware of what I’m quite good at and I know what more knowledge
I have what skills I have I have some self-awareness the other path that people often miss is actually
I just start serving people
I just start helping people and I start to notice what I enjoy about that and what I’m good at helping people with so
That’s Gandhi’s part Nandi said that you find yourself when you lose yourself in the service of others so for me
Those are the two paths of how do I find my passion and finding the intersect between those four areas?
And the second one is
Jay my relationships falling apart I get asked that all the time so the answer to that is much harder
Okay, it’s it’s harder to summarize it, but I always start with
self-actualization that
The problem is we have a list for the one that we want
And we don’t have a list for what we need to become and I don’t mean become to attract
I mean become to just be to just get to understand yourself
You don’t know what you need in your life until you figure out who you are and so I find too many people rush into
Relationships without really recognizing and being fully aware of what they need from a relationship
So it all comes back to how aware are you how much understanding?
Do you have of yourself and what you need and what you want?
that’s my best advice for relationship in like a minute and
Then the third question, I mostly get asked is Jay. What do you read like?
What are your favorite books because it seems you read a lot? What are your top three books?
They’re not groundbreaking in the sense that people may not be like oh, that’s the best book. I’ve ever read for me
they changed my life, so that’s where I’m coming at a point from I
Love start with Y by simon Sinek and not because I applied it to
Businesses because I applied it to my life and even today
constantly refining my Y
That’s all I do every day my deepest morning routine and practice is to refine why I do what I do
It’s so easy for me to now do it for money. It’s so easy for me to now do it for followers
it’s so easy for me to now do it for fame and
Every day I have to refine that because I know
Having lived as a monk and what I practiced that if those become what I want, then. I’ll forget who I need to be
So my daily practice my daily routine is refining my intention which in modern language is wide
So for me is Simon’s book help me do that
the bhagavad-gita
which I would love to do for Vedic knowledge what Ryan’s done for stoicism and
The bug would be to over 5,000 years old and that book really
Exemplifies human challenge third book I’d say this one’s gonna. Be hard cuz it’s the last one
Let me think I’m gonna try throw something else in there
So I’ve done one like self-development one more spiritual enlightenment. Let me throw a
Business book in seeing as I’m sure you have a lot of business few years. I love the book exponential organizations
I don’t if you read it by Saleem Ishmael and the singularity University and
That book for me is an incredible analysis of the success of all the organizations we see ruling our phone today
The way it breaks down their business models, and how they were created to me
it’s fascinating so if anyone really wants to start up a
Exponential business today, and that’s where they have to go and that’s when Peter Diamandis said that if you want to be a billionaire
Redefining it is someone who impacted the lives of a billion people and and that’s what that business book is really about is
How do you claim exponential organization that positively impacts a billion people so those are my three for today?
environment and energy
Everyone has an element that they thrive in
If you take someone out of it the element they won’t be the same a modern-day example would be Michael Jordan
He was incredible at basketball you took him out of basketball put him into baseball no one remembers his career
We talk about one the best athletes of all time
Your environment is the environment around you you can take a fish out of water?
And give it a beautiful mansion and a Bentley and all the money in the world
But it would die and that’s what we are like our environment
Everyone is an environment which may thrive which we have to craft your boss if you’re at work is never gonna
Ask you anyway
What environment you succeed in right like that never happens?
So we have to create an environment where we thrive and then finally its energy
We some of us love high energy environments high pressure some of us succeed in lower energy environments and low pressure
Figuring out your energy and the frequency on which you operate best will help you thrive as well so for me
Those are the three e’s to really create a thriving environment know your element know your
Environment and know your energy and so at all times
if I see anything going wrong, I’m going is my element out of alignment is my
Environment out of alignment, or is my energy out of alignment?
That’s a great three question test you can do to yourself when you don’t think things are going right and all you have to do
Is bring that back into alignment?
The impact that you want to have on the world I
think you’ve you’ve
said it, so
Beautifully so many times and shared my vision which is wonderful and it’s wonderful to know that we should we share the same thing
It’s making wisdom go viral. There’s an incredible study in 2017 that said the most
successful people in the world
healthy wealthy and wise
education over entertainment
The impact I want to have from the world is I want to transform and revolutionize the entertainment industry
So that it becomes educational without anyone knowing so it’s still completely
Entertaining it’s still like watching Netflix
But you’re learning about human behavior the mind neuroscience and everything without even knowing you are to me
That’s the greatest win that we can have for our society. How many people are going to quit watching Netflix
I’m reading a book every night. I don’t know
But if we can make that book come to life on Netflix
That’s going to change the world because that’s what people are going to consume so for so long
Media has been used to numb people to to switch people off if we can use it to excite elevate enlighten people
not by just
Not by like the cheesy way of like
Oh, let’s follow someone through their journey of enlightenment or like that kind of stuff. I mean really entertaining programming
Where you can learn by being entertained at the same time if I can do that by changing the most powerful industry in the world
Then I will feel that I’ve had some some whatever an impact
Because that way I think will reach the world without having to get on to change their habits too much
My my thing is how do we meet people where they are and?
And really deliver a message and a powerful
Expression of love and to me that’s the highest form of compassion the highest form of empathy love and compassion
Is to meet people where they already are rather than expecting them to change and yeah?
That’s the impact I’d like to have in the world fingers crossed with your help with the help of everyone who’s watching you know
It’s gonna be a team effort. I can do it on my own
I’m not expecting to but yeah, that’s that’s impacted like down on the world
You you

100 thoughts on “MONK MENTALITY – Jay Shetty – One Of The Best Speeches EVER | MOST INSPIRING!

  1. While watching this from a certain point of time it reminded me of when I was in 5th grade and I didn't have a book to read but I carried around a dictionary my father gave me. In class, during reading time I would take it out and go through the alphabet because I didn't know where to start but my teacher would yell at me, "YOU CAN"T READ A DICTIONARY" and it made me doubt myself for doing this. I was naturally inclined to be self-conscious because it was considered abnormal but looking back at it now I wish I continued despite her objections. My father taught me that words are powerful and I wanted to prove to him that I was doing the work he desired of me, despite not knowing his good intentions.

  2. I watch this video over and over again to understand myself and try to tap into the lesson being taught and it's really proving to be all the difference, Jays mind is different from mine and if I want to achieve his level of mastery I need to understand where he's coming from

  3. When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.

  9. I'm changing careers after this talk. I've already been wanting to, but his advice about looking where people are 10 years down the line (I'm in sales) and they are fucking miserable. It obviously wasn't only this speech, it had been coming a long time now, but this was the last thing I needed to hear to make the decision. Thanks Jay, I feel free now to go after what I've wanted for years.

  22. Hi Jay.
    My son danny that is 16 years old is inspired by every single one of your videos. If you ever have a speech in LA or San Diego please let us know .

  23. Tom, you are my favorite host! You always listen intently to your guests and interject only when needed (e.g., to ask a question that you know or suspect that your audience is thinking. Some hosts constantly comment and interrupt the speakers and I personally find that distracting and annoying. Thanks for providing these enlightening videos!

  24. All I can say is THANK YOU my Teacher of LIFE. Lesson to You every day changing the way I look at LIFE, And see the World Change.

  25. Why would you use someone else’s video and put your own name on it as if you owned the rights or the production company?

  26. 👌I am studying psychology and learning japnese language, culture and zen and thinking to become a monk. I am 23 yr interested alot in spiritual life and want to do good for others 😇

  27. I gave up everything and my future, did a selfless sacrifice for the one I loved but only to be betrayed, now I feel like a fool! This is real life for you guys!

  28. Apart from a monk, do you think that billionaires actually allow strangers to just sit there with them the whole day and to let us observe them?!

  29. Proof Jay "Shitty" is a plagiarist and steals all his quotes. Profiting off other people's intellectual property

  30. Who is Jay Shetty's guru?

  31. All is well but I still trying to understand that does world problems solve being monk? Does invention happen through Monk? In my view, it is good to be a monk but does not provide food in a plate for everyone in the world.

  32. I can remember walking threw a grocery store not really sure of what I wanted to eat but I knew I wanted change to get more healthy sooo next thing you know a lady munk touches my hand and starts to push my cart with me and showed me all the foods that she wanted and they were all foods from the earth she gave me thanks and gave me a card I'll never forget that a mind blowing experience. Everyone in the grocery store starred like I was crazy but I didnt care because I felt good buying her food and feeling the peace & joy she held. I was grateful for what she taught me in my time of need😁 she could of choose anyone else but she chose me to enlighten now today as a personal trainer I love helping people to become healthier as it keeps me motivated for me and my family such a blessing.🙌✌💙💛🧡💜❤💖

  33. Jay,

    Like what you say, about test plioting after years of contemplation.

    Curious to understand would the same apply when left in isolation after close family brevement. And using that time for 'spiritual space'. Almost like sleep beauty awaken from her slumber.

    Is this the so called inner peace time to deactivate from the pain inflicted by others (mind games) and manifest a soul mate / life and career time.

  34. All Christians come off these type of channels. This involves meditation and Buddhism. God's Holy Bible is the only truth you need to be transformed. Forget this mysticism. The Great Tribulation is coming soon!!

  35. I lost my brother to cancer before he had cancer he was into drugs and he ended up in sex trafficking in 1995. I'm just now realizing all that he went through 9 years after he died. I also lost a cousin who had too many DUIs to live in this state. He had to move to a different state and ended up getting hit by a semi truck in the mountains. The state of Wyoming. Those 2 life-changing events happened in my 20's. It's things like this that happened in our lives that make us change our perspectives and live a happier life because of it if we choose the right path. Living on purpose is what we need to do to thrive to live the longest we can! I did lose my joy for a while during my grief meant. But I am slowly gaining my joy and confidence back to face the world.


  37. Jay shetty – is a wannabe even his eyes are faked to attract viewers…you dont want to learn from someone whos peaks about monk and starts faking for more views.

  38. So I listened and took notes twice yesterday and today. So this evening on my porch relaxing at 9:40 pm, the crickets chirping in the background the ending final music plays. I reach for my computer in the darkness of porch light only and calm. I hear my own voice speak out and So I say! "Now That Was A Good Good Movie"!

  39. And also pride ruins a persons life but you can change that by loving the people that hate you and love your neighbor even if they looked at you funny or even if they raped your daughter if you love them and forgive them and then my friend your pride is gone because pride my friend is the recipe to hate ego selfish ness greed and pride my friend is the recipe to all sin and of you don't change you act right away or try to change your prideful self you will parish in hell and that's just the plain truth or so I believe, and think of this pride and sin both have an I in it so hate your life as in be selfless and giving and love the people that hate and love others than you have no pride you are a good loving human being and love god and you will get 10 times more love back, hate god and god will still love you god love everybody on this earth no matter what and that's what I think and that's what I believe and that's what many other people think and what a beautiful video I loved it and I love the video and I thank the monk that said the things he said in this video it really opened up my mind to many other things in life and showed me so many things that I thought I wanted that I honestly did not want thank you
