CURSE OF KNOWLEDGE:
This is a powerful cognitive bias, and the one that's probably most responsible for you staying stuck in your dead-end way of doing things instead of breaking out.

What is it?
The mind's inability to remember what it was like to not know something.
At first glance you may think this is a relatively unimportant thing. Completely harmless.

But it's robbing you of your freedom. Here's how.

To understand, we're going to use an example from my life: Magic Tricks.

I'm a professional mentalist; I've performed in Vegas.
I know how the mind works, and I understand why the simple methods of magic are so powerful; they leverage exactly these kinds of mental hiccups. So, here's the example.

Why is mindset so important? Sit down by the fire & let me tell you a story about a process I see all the time in my coaching experience.

Potential clients (whether its business coaching or personal/physical) will hop on the phone for a 45 minute deep dive into their situation.
This call is designed to help them clarify their real issues, identify where their roadblocks are, define their vision for future success, and plan a route to get there. It's the most valuable 45 minutes they're likely to spend for the whole year.
It's exactly the same processes I've used to create opportunities for myself that take me around the world, work with the US military, appear on national TV, navigate prolonged high stress environments, and more.

I operate on elite levels and know how to get people there too.
