"Your brain wants your life to be predictable.
Your emotions want your life to be stable.
But stability and predictability are, interestingly, how you stay stuck and in survival-mode.
You can only have freedom in your life when you leave stability and predictability behind you.
You cannot be free unless you step into the unknown.
If you’re not willing to step into the unknown, then you’re a hostage to what you know. You’re a slave to your current circumstances.
You’re a slave to your emotions.
You’re a slave to your story.
You’re a slave to the fixed-mindset you have about what you think you are."
"people inflate or exaggerate reality by 5–7X when they fear avoiding loss.
Interestingly, people stay in even terrible addictions because, at least while in the addiction, their life is predictable. Even when they know their life is being destroyed, the fear of the unknown keeps them from changing their lives."
