No questions, no asking why something is the way it is, just a full on going into consultant mode without knowing the full story. Here’s the thing though, we all do this. I do this and you do this all of the time. It takes a lot of discipline to ask questions rather than just jump into what you think about a situation Or how you think something should be.


061 FIFM - We All Need a Walk

If you know dog psychology, you'd know that one of the necessities of life for dogs is to take a walk every day. Well, guess what…You need a walk too.

In this episode, you're good to hear a really cool story of how two people can have to completely different views in a particular situation. One of the most beneficial things that you can do that leads to success is to see things objectively. A lot of times you don't see things the way they really are because you're telling yourself a story. This particular story illustrates this very well.
