336: How to rewire your thinking patterns - with Thomas Sterner
January 30, 2024

If you’ve been in a rut lately, maybe it’s time to rewire your thinking patterns. Our brains are a fascinating thing… We are so quick to believe that our thoughts are all real. That what swirls in our brain is the truth that your entire perception of your life experience is built upon. But what if it isn't fully true?

My special guest today is author Thomas Sterner and he’s simplifying how to rewire your thinking patterns. You’ll gain a better understanding of your conscious and unconscious thinking to open your mindset to new ways of perceiving what’s happening in your life and all around you.

Here’s how.

My special guest today is Thomas Sterner and he’s simplifying how to rewire your thinking patterns.

We tackle and simplify all aspects of it, including:

When you peel back the layers of the onion, you realize that how you perceive what’s happening to you in your life is literally affecting every other aspect of how you move through life. Even the notion of “what’s happening TO you” vs “what’s happening FOR you” is one to take a moment to consider. Are you always on the defense, with your guard up and very rarely letting people (and opportunities) in?

What if there was a different way to perceive your life?

What if your thinking patterns have something to do with it and it’s time to pull a thread and see what happens? Maybe see if there’s a different way to look at things? Join us on this journey to learn how to love living once again and consider that maybe (just maybe) a better life exists on the other side.
