Retrain Your Mind to Stop Betraying You – BtR 042

Retrain Your Mind

Our minds betray us. We wish to live a life of significance, but find ourselves putting off the steps that will get us where we want to be. We may be living in a state of learned helplessness after years of failure after failure. Fear holds some of us back before we ever give our dreams a shot.

Fear was a powerful tool for survival thousands of years ago. The emotion that once was vital for our survival and key in our development as a society is now be the very thing that holds us back from boldly living.

Darius Foroux shares with us his journey from a place of achieving success, the kind of success that everyone told him he should achieve, and pursuing a life that was a better fit for his passions and the kind of life he wanted to live.

You’ll hear Darius talk about overcoming his own sense of dread in life and made his own path. He’ll talk about getting from a point of deciding to no longer live in the rut to reaching the goals he set for himself. Darius had to retrain his mind to look at the world from a different perspective.

Our minds are powerful. Our thoughts will determine whether we take action or hold back. Fear will force us to miss deadlines and kill momentum.

“If there’s no deadline, why are you doing it?” – Darius Foroux
