Are you running your business for the right reasons? 

Here’s a simple yet powerful question you can ask yourself in decision making and in practically every situation in your life:

Are you choosing to be yourself or are you choosing to be accepted?

Choosing to be yourself is choosing to love yourself. And this is not an easy task. 

In this episode, Greg Habstritt talks about finding your true self, the power of the pause, and some tools to connect with yourself through psychedelics and more.

In this episode, you will hear:

  • Two primary reasons why business fail
  • Why humans have this need to be always accepted
  • The remarkable question we ask ourselves all the time
  • The battle between the inner owl and the inner fox
  • What is the purpose of life?
  • What happens when you choose to be yourself over being accepted
  • Tools to connect with yourself (psychedelics, breathwork, meditation, etc.)
  • Acceptance vs resistance
