Why Your Mindset Matters If You Want Health And Wealth

Episode 83 1h 11m


We create our own realities—it’s all in how we think about life. Ever notice how a growth mindset leads to opportunity and success and how a poverty mindset leaves you with nothing but want, and often spirals downwards 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. This week on The Doctor’s Farmacy I dig into how to do that, and so much more, with Tom Bilyeu.
