Why is it so hard to do the little things that would make a big difference in my life? Mel Robbins talks about this on a podcast with Tom Bilyeu. It comes back to our survival instinct. Mel explains that when we come up with a great idea but hesitate, it sends a stress single to our brain. This alerts our brain to keep us from doing something that might harm us. Our brain protects us. One such tactic is the spotlight effect where our brain magnifies how risky a decision is. So all I need to do is kill the spotlight and I’ll be cured. I need a brain snuffer!
