Are you blind to your blindness?

Are you blind to your blindness?

When you learned how to drive, one of the first things you were taught was to regularly check side-view mirrors and build an awareness of the precise spot there, to the side, where you don’t see what’s going on.

Unfortunately for us, our brains are not equipped with side-view mirrors; and we don’t even have drive instructors to drill us into paying attention to our cognitive blind spots.

To all the things we’re telling ourselves that sound true to us, but are just opinions.

To all the “I’ll never have time to do it all”; the “I don’t have what it takes”; the “I don’t know what to do.”

Those opinions matter, because they create your feelings, which fuel your actions, which produce your results.

Learn how to notice what you’re thinking.

Or even better: learn how to change what you’re thinking, when it’s not helpful to you.

I’m sharing how to do that in this week’s episode of the Excellent Rider podcast.

No bad horses, only untrained riders 🐴
