It was about 15 years ago.
While still at my former employer, I was starting to mentally explore the possibility of becoming a corporate expatriate.
And as quick as I allowed myself to venture into those thoughts, the Gremlins began to attack.
Unlike the cute fur-baby from the movies, these are the monsters of your mind.
They feed on things like self doubt, envy, jealousy, and regret.
Left unchecked, they will hold an unfair advantage in your decision making process.
Forty years ago, Rick Carson started talking about Taming Your Gremlin®.
His book Taming Your Gremlin®, A Surprisingly Simple Method for Getting Out of Your Own Way is must reading for wholesalers who sometimes can’t get out of their own head/way.
If you’d prefer, this podcast interview with Rick is worth every bit of the 35 minutes you’ll invest in it.
My enemy was the thoughts between my ears, not my abilities.
Do you have Gremlins to tame?
