In today’s episode, I want to share with you a concept called the motivational triad. This concept is crucial because it explains how our brain works and why we do some cray-cray things.

The primary purpose of our lower brain is straightforward. Its priority is to keep us alive. Our brains focus on three simple motivations: seek pleasure, avoid pain, and stay the same.

When we desire to grow, this goes against our primitive brain function and often causes us to revert from chasing our goals or dreams. This is when our brain will start to F*ck with us! 

All the not-enoughness will come up.  This behavior pattern can be corrected, and I will share with you the formula to stop thinking and playing it small and start to build the foundation to create the life that we want.
