Most of us run on an endless string of vague goals and should-haves, with true, empowering change always just out of reach. Many of us feel stuck in our day-to-day routine, without the proper tools to break the mold and live our best lives every single day.
David Nurse, a renowned life optimization coach of more than 150 NBA players and CEOs, knows it doesn't have to be that way. His key is to make mindful mindset pivots that allow you to shift your perspective by incremental yet powerful degrees, which is what we discuss in this episode.
But, we also dive into a deep conversation on Christianity. What is God? Is there a Heaven and a Hell? What about Adam and Eve? David and I have two opposing viewpoints and challenging each other brings about an interesting conversation.
