On this episode, a different view of how to “make it.” Business Insider’s senior strategy reporter Richard Feloni spoke with Buddhist monk and bestselling author Matthieu Ricard while he was promoting his new book “Beyond the Self,” which he co-authored with neuroscientist Wolf Singer. For the last 50 years Ricard has lived in Nepal, often with no electricity or running water. Despite that, he’s given not one but two viral TED Talks, and been called “the the happiest man in the world.” But to Ricard, none of that is a measure of success.
