Your brain’s natural instincts are getting the way of your creation and growth. What your brain thinks is “safe” is really just sabotage.
This episode has actionable steps to take to expose your brain’s avoidance tactics, so you can get unstuck, and get the most out of your awesome life.
Most of us think that negative emotion is something to be avoided and that if we are living our lives in the “right way,” our uncomfortable experiences will be limited.
But for those of us who strive to follow Christ, learning to feel our feelings, especially negative ones, may be an important part of becoming more like him.

One of the default thoughts our brain gives us is that God is disappointed in us and the way we are living our life.

In this episode, I’m sharing some ideas to help you get into action and do the thing.

And, more importantly, so you can start doing the things you’ve been too scared to try. Getting good at feeling bad is the key to getting the life you really want.
As humans, we believe that we’re supposed to be happy.
And when life is hard, this belief that we should be happy makes us think that either God isn’t there or he doesn’t care about us. In reality, difficult circumstances are the way God shows his love because they give us access to joy.
The only thing preventing us from become another version of ourselves, is the thoughts we believe about ourselves.
The fastest way to become who you want to be is to decide to think different thoughts about yourself and adopt them as quickly as possible.

Guilt and shame are completely unnecessary to change and grow—and are the very things preventing real transformation.
