Ep.85 | 5 Minute Drill | Identify a Neutral Action To Move Forward From a Negative Thought

What would happen to your car’s transmission if you continually went from driving in reverse to punching it in drive?

KIDS: Don’t try this at home. =)

Problem is, too many people are doing this with their mindset and it’s burning them out.

In today’s 5-Minute Drill, I’m going to help you put neutral thinking into practice. 

If you have no clue what I’m talking about, then you REALLY need to listen to today’s episode.

Getting neutral is all about preparing to move forward towards your NEXT in an objective, rational way.

If you want a more consistent, reliable way to overcome temporary roadblocks, challenges, or spirals of negative thinking, then lock in on today’s Drill.
