The School of Greatness by Lewis Howes: Understanding Human Psychology From The Masters


No matter what you do in life, psychology is something you shouldn’t overlook.

It’s not just something you should know in order to make new friends, or land your first job, but also to help you grow.

You need to understand yourself to know what obstacles you need to overcome. When you understand your own psychology, you open a whole new world of possibilities.

Getting to know your personality type means you’ll know what to adjust when you meet someone else. It also means you’ll know what to look out for when someone is trying to manipulate you.

In every way, knowing psychology can be important to help you achieve the greatness you want. That’s why I put together this new mashup with the bests: Scott Barry KaufmanChris LeeGretchen RubinJohn Danner and Chris Kuenne.
