Episode Info: PICK YOUR POISON - This idiom is sabotaging people’s lives. When it comes to choosing a career, some people have a “pick your poison” mentality. They falsely believe that they can either do something they are passionate about, or that they can choose a career that will make good money – as if passion and money are mutually exclusive. So when they are faced with making this decision, they ultimately rationalize that while they cannot live without money, they can live without passion. None of those options work. It drives me crazy to find that people with this dilemma think there are no other options. When someone has to pick their poison they are not able to be who they really are. They believe they have to choose between the lesser of the two evils. They believe they can’t have their cake and eat it too. I don’t know why people fall victim to this mindset. We have accepted picking our poison and not eating our cake. But I will be damned if I won’t be eating my cake, and I’ll be damned that if I am faced with the choice of two poisons that I won’t find another way! I believe you are like that too.  I do not have to pick a poison and neither do you. To accept that you have to do this is to accept defeat before the battle begins and it is committing mental suicide. It is a rare societal acceptance of defeat and it allows negativity into your life and prevents you from reaching your full potential. You can choose water instead of poison and you can eat your cake too.     ACTION CHALLENGE: Whatever area you are taking action in your life, do not accept defeat before the battle even begins. You’re a fighter. Don’t accept the lies you are being told, stand for what you believe in and keep taking action.                                                                                                                    SHOW US SOME LOVE &
