The Knowing-Doing Gap

The Knowing-Doing Gap

Subscribe: iTunes | Stitcher | SoundcloudRSS

Would you believe me if I told you that you are not in charge of your life? Most people won’t believe this. But, if you take the time to look at your daily activities, you’ll find that how we think and feel are products of the subconscious mind that is at work ninety-five percent of the time. Most of these thoughts and programs in the subconscious hold us back from really doing and being the best version of ourselves – personal or business-wise. 

We discuss this in detail in the first of the three-part series with Shawn Feurer. He gives us insight into the knowing-doing gap and how the subconscious plays a huge role in this gap. Shawn also shares the common paradigms that contractors and tradies have. He then challenges the listeners of this podcast episode to think big and start identifying what holds you back from accomplishing the big stuff.
