“I’ve missed my chance!” I've worked with too many twentysomethings who believe this lie.
I also spent too many years believing this lie myself.
In today's podcast, I jam-pack it with inspirational stories and lessons on why you haven't missed your chance in life.
One story I tell is of a twentysomething heavy metal rocker whose first album flopped. He was so discouraged that he’d lost his “one chance” at success that he...

Stephen Pressfield in his book The War of Art called it "Resistance". I call it "The Liar".
The moment you start moving forward. The moment you start taking that chance. The moment you put yourself out there, the Liar is going to try and stop you. The Liar is going to try and convince you that you don't have what it takes.

I don't want to embarrass myself. I'm pretty afraid of it actually.

“All you need is love” is a lie.
This first episode might be a little controversial because I think saying “I love you” should not be the peak of relationship seriousness. Because for one, it’s really easy to say I love you to someone you don’t really know.
I think we’ve gotten love all wrong and it’s messing up our expectations of what it means to have a healthy relationship.
