Remember how I said that our brain loves to play tricks on us, and how fear is its device of choice?
Well, that shows up all over our careers, and if we’re not careful, that big mean old liar could set us on a downward spiral of paranoia, making assumptions and acting out in ways we aren’t proud of.
What if you could short-circuit all this drama and tell yourself something more constructive? In this episode, I share one simple question and one simple statement that will put fear in its place once and for all.
Our brains remember things and process information by understanding the story. When you don’t have all the facts about the story, your brain is kind enough to fill in those holes with fear based lies. - Jen Thornton
