In a culture that’s obsessed with adding things in (we want more, more, more), we can forget how powerful removing things can be. We need to take away that which is preventing us from reaching our goals in order to truly move forward.
On this week’s episode of The Broken Brain Podcast, Dhru talks about nine things he commonly sees people doing that hold them back from their goals and dreams (whether they realize it or not).
I’m willing to bet these nine habits will hit home with many of you. Do you obsess over what other people think of you? Do you waste time on social media as a way of avoiding other things? Or maybe you’re the kind of person who is constantly hard on yourself and lives according to other people’s expectations instead of your own desires. There are so many tendencies we fall into, for many different reasons, but that doesn’t mean we’re stuck with them.
We can change, we can grow, we can shift our mindset and actions to finally reach those meaningful goals.
In this episode, we dive into:
- Why we obsess over what others think of us (1:49)
- Why we waste time on social media (11:27)
- Why we don’t ask for help or support from friends (16:17)
- Why we blame everyone instead of looking within (21:17)
- Why we avoid setting an invention for the day (25:08)
- Why we spend time with the wrong people (29:10)
- Why we don’t read books that help us level up (32:28)
- Why we live the life that others expect of us, instead of a life true to you (37:11)
- Why we are hard on ourselves all day, everyday (44:56)
