Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has adopted a new philosophy in life according to which he is “great and so is everyone else”.
The singer, who split from his ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow in 2014, has made the decision to see himself as only having achieved amazing things, reported Female First.
“My philosophy at the moment is that I’m great – and so is everybody else. You have to fit your own oxygen mask. That’s really my philosophy now,” he said.
Martin approached a Sufi teacher to learn spiritual values after his split from Paltrow.
The 39-year-old said he was taught to seek inner guidance and has admitted the philosophy has made him more confident in his music.
“My philosophy now (is) our band is the best band in the world. And so are all the other bands. Then I don’t have to feel threatened by any other bands. I enjoy it a lot more,” said Martin.
Following the last two years or contrasting emotions, the “Up & Up” singer now lives by the mantra that happiness is a state of mind you can omit control over.
