It can be easy to get stuck in a mental prison where your outlook on life focuses on your fears and insecurities, rather than your potential. It takes self-awareness and a willingness to challenge your inner voice to break free of these internal weights holding you down. This week, author and mental architect Lucas Jadin talks about the power of mental preparation and resiliency and how to commit to unpacking the mental side of life.
Too often, people try to fix internal problems with external solutions. While they may provide a temporary distraction, they will never lead to a long-term resolution. That’s why it’s critical to find the root of these problems, so they can be fixed where they start. It means coming to terms with sometimes long-held fears and insecurities, but the payoff is a life that can fill the space left when you are free of limitations.
