Transcript of the interview of David Gruder
David Laroche: Yeah, according to you what could be the life lessons you would like to share with youth.
David Gruder: The first and most important life lesson from me is ‘be teachable’. Have a teachable spirit. It’s so important to combine your ability to trust what you know in your deepest self with the willingness to be impacted in positive ways by the world around you. Have a teachable spirit. The second is ‘keep your cup full’. In other words do what you need to do in order to have all of your life energy available to you in each moment of each day. Change the way you live your life so that you have a full cup throughout your day, and the third is what we were talking about earlier. Learn to be masterful at harvesting precious deep gifts from undesired unacceptable life experiences.
David Laroche: Great. It’s great. Thank you very much. I have a question. It is a weird question. The goal is to do very funny videos and my question will be how to become unhappy. Okay?
David Gruder: How to become unhappy?
David Laroche: Yeah. Are you ready? So, David, I have a third question for you. We were talking about happiness, integrity. I’m fed up about that, and do you have some advices, keys, something I can do today not tomorrow, today to become unhappy in this life.
David Gruder: Yes, absolutely. So repeat to yourself over and over and over again ‘nothing funny ever happens to me’, nothing funny ever happens to me’, nothing funny ever happens to me’. Just keep repeating that to yourself.
David Laroche: Great! So is this the first step? Do you have something else?
David Gruder: That’s all you need.
David Laroche: Okay. I have to repeat to myself bad things or only this sentence?
David Gruder: Nothing funny ever happens to me.
David Laroche: Okay.
David Gruder: Just that one statement. Just keep repeating it over and over again. And eventually you’ll believe it.
David Laroche: Okay. Great! Thank you very much David. I will try that.
