Let the power of self-loathing light the pathway to your success by Robert Vargas

About this video


We live in a social media-constructed echo chamber of self-affirmation. As creatives, we clamour for institutional merit so that we can show the world how humbled we are when we receive recognition. The basic takeaway is: I am awesome and proud of it. For people for whom self-love comes easily, this is a comfortable extension of their impulses. For self-loathers, not so much. Is there a way to survive and be fulfilled when your closest ally is a relentless inner critic? Does the fact that narcissists are praised and rewarded at the highest professional levels make it an aspirational way of being? Rob uses his vast amount of compelling life experience and unmatched depth of knowledge to answer these questions both eloquently and authoritatively.
