We create our own realities—it’s all in how we think about life. Do you ever notice how a growth mindset leads to opportunity and success, but a poverty mindset leaves you with nothing but wants and often spirals downward into an ongoing funk?
We have to use our physical state to change our mental state, and vice versa. There’s a feedback loop between our bodies and brains, which is why mindset and behavior are so powerful for creating the reality we desire.
Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with David Nurse to talk about how to build unshakable confidence and the power of pivoting to accomplish your dreams.
David Nurse is a bestselling author, speaker, and coach to NBA players. As a former professional basketball player, David’s ability to get into the zone and master his mindset led him to two Guinness World Records for shooting.
