The human brain is wired to overvalue the opinions of our peers....it served us back when we were roaming the African savanna, but it doesn't serve us as much now. That feeling you get when your friends talk mess about you, when your parents disapprove, or when you miss a shot in a game...That feeling paralyzes many and prevents them from taking risks or doing what is necessary. You cannot be a victim to this disease, you have to learn how to overcome the fear of others opinions...but how? How can you practically and systematically build immunity to what stops so many others? In this episode, I show you how I approach this problem.
