Ep #17: Believing New Thoughts

Season #1

Believing New Thoughts

Your brain doesn't like it when you tell it new things. It wants to stay right where it is with its secure and comfortable thoughts. So that means when you begin creating a new and improved version of yourself, your brain is going to feel confronted. There will be the old belief system and then this new and improved one. That feels uncomfortable. That is called cognitive dissonance. And cognitive dissonance often prevents people from going for their big goals. Tune in to this episode of The Healthy Leader Podcast to learn how you can use a specific self-leadership tool to shrink the gap between your belief systems and achieve what you want next in life.
