Did you know that someone’s genetics may explain why some people prefer chaos over order?
In this episode of the Align podcast, Dr. Doug Brackmann and I chat about what it really means to be Driven. Essentially, our Driven characteristics are related to a certain genetic makeup, meaning our ways of being are not simply personality traits but are ingrained in our DNA. We also debate over why love and social acceptance are not the same thing, the differences between intuition and feelings, and why not all feelings are bullshit.
Dr. Doug Brackmann is one of the leading psychologists to some of the most successful and Driven entrepreneurs, pro athletes, executives, and other top performers. By combining the components of meditation, long-range shooting, and therapy, Dr. Doug helps those with Driven characteristics (often wrongfully diagnosed as ADD, ADHD, OCD, or other) to harness their hunter abilities.
What we discuss:
