Stop, stop, stop

The lizard brain does not want you to take chances. It wants things to be safe, reliable, and most of all, predictable.

It wants you to stop what you are doing, to stop thinking of that non-profit you want to start, to stop you from finishing that book you always wanted to write.

Stopping is boring and predictable. You know exactly what happens: you get to go back to the same ol’ life, the same ol’ outcomes.

But what would happen if instead, we decided to go. Go because that leads us to places we want to go. Go because we don’t know what you could happen next.

Go, go, go.

Don’t expect the mantra to come from the amygdala but it can be your war cry whenever that fear gets in the way.
