Can you believe September is almost over?
Happy Tuesday! In this episode, I talk about a few facts about what people often do around self-help, and how some basic knowledge can allow us to make informed decisions.
|| PODCAST SUMMARY ||
We are told to reinvent ourselves by starting from scratch. But the roots of who you are already wait under the layers of ‘shoulds’ the world has given us.
Most self-help tools focus on teaching new concepts and skills, but half of the difficulty with reinvention of not understanding what we already know and do. Knowing that eating chocolate does this to my brain would enable me to make informed decisions. Did you know that ‘worrying’ is actually your brain working correctly? We are wired to problem solve, and we don’t know how much control we have over our lives because we are taught to suppress those natural instincts.
