And we make it mean we’re not smart enough, we’re not predestined to do this thing. Listen, none of those things are true.
Our brain is f***ing with us.
Our history of success can equally be used against us and when we recognize that this is happening we must slow down and reroute our thoughts. Tune in to learn how.
