The Nature of Beliefs - A Conversation with Amir Karkouti
And why sharing your understanding of the principles (or indeed anything) may be unhelpful...

In this episode I share a conversation I had with my dear friend Amir, for his WTF Are The Principles Group.

Let’s look at the nature of beliefs and the role they play in our interpretation of the world.

We’ve seen some passionate debates around these parts, strong opinions, gentle pointing, all usually with an undercurrent of ‘so long as you're pointing to truth it’s all cool.’

I like that sentiment too.

But are we pointing to truth?
Or have we been hoodwinked by an unintentional magic trick that appears to have swept aside our beliefs only to instil another?

Let’s explore...

Here’s how Amir introduced this conversation:
Alright folks, I am excited about this one! You may have seen him as the host of "The Coaching Life" Podcast where he interviewed some of the top coaches in our industry. You may have read his books Musings on Love and the sequel More Musings on Love. You may have seen him jump in and answer a question on Facebook from a completely different space that blew you away. Well, you will finally get a chance to listen to him speak and share with us.

I am going to give you a personal bio even though his bio is posted below. I have known Phil since the beginning days of my coaching career. We have done workshops together and he has become a very good friend. One thing that separates Phil from so many is that he embodies what he shares. His personality, his love of life, and his generosity seeps in every facet of his existence. Whenever we spend time together I feel like I got bathed in a spiritual bath. He is incredibly human and has a talent to see what most of us don't see about how amazing we are!

You can find Amir's group on Facebook via welovesyd.com
