[Podcast] Why trusting your brain can be detrimental to your well being

 June 21, 2017

By  Casey Berman

The comedian Emo Phillips once said: “I used to think that the brain was the most wonderful organ in my body. Then I realized who was telling me this.”

Our brain. Our beliefs. Our belief systems. How we are programmed.

This impacts how we feel, how we act, how we view the world, how we succeed, how we perceive happiness.

Or not.

In the Love or Leave the Law Podcast, my podcast partner Adam Ouellette and I focus on how what we believe (whether we realize it or not) drives how we act, feel and view our reality as a practicing lawyer.

Beliefs can be positive and empowering, or negative and bring us down. It’s important to drill down, analyze and discern which beliefs influence us at which moments in our life, and in particular how we view our legal practice.

We shine light on our current beliefs around money and abundance (or lack thereof) and how these can stifle and limit our goals and dreams.

We dispel the myths that a lawyer’s asking for help is a sign of weakness, that “perfection” is to be aspired to at all costs and or that a lawyer’s ability to provide value beyond the legal professions is close to impossible.

That’s what we touch on in our four part series (Episodes 14, 15, 16, & 17) of our Love or Leave the Law Podcast.
