We are elegant storytellers.

When left to ourselves, our minds can play the trick of justifying anything and everything. And when it comes to achieving our dreams, we often hide excuses as reasons for why we haven’t met our goals. This lying to ourselves blocks us from achieving our dreams because we can’t accurately diagnose what is and isn’t working

That’s why on today’s episode of the Mentorbox podcast, we are discussing the “it” factor, and how successful people share one thing in common: unfiltered dialogue with themselves. It is radical self-honesty that begins the journey to achieving your dreams.

So listen to today’s episode of the Mentorbox podcast to learn how to clear the clutter in your mind, so you can begin the journey to accomplishing your biggest goals!
