Be Careful with the Answers You Lock Into (#99)
Today I want to start with a yellow flag: Be very careful of the answers that you lock into.
What I’ve observed is that we often lock into an answer and then we protect that answer. Here is an example:
I was once teaching a workshop and at break, a number of people were standing around chit chatting. One of the women, Cindy, said to me, “I wanted to ask you something. Earlier you made a comment about how you used to have a bad back. What did you do for it?”
I shared what I had done, which was essentially to cut out processed carbs and refined sugars. In fact, my results were pretty dramatic: before starting this new way of eating, my back was so bad that it was a struggle to put my socks on in the morning. After we started eating in this new way, within ONE week, my back pain was gone. In fact, my back felt so loose and fluid, it was truly amazing.
