You don’t want to stay hungry? Then stop trying hard to prove yourself.

In one of the chapters (THE LAW OF GRANDIOSITY) in his latest book, THE LAWS OF HUMAN NATURE, Robert Greene, well known for the 48 Laws of Power and Seduction, talked about how we can fool ourselves to believe that ‘I’m too much’ (those are my words though) and we are better than everyone else.
