James Silvas is a mindset specialist and founder of the “Be That 1%” brand and podcast. He has studied the brain and human psyche to discover the keys to creating the most optimal mindset, and shares his findings with us. It’s so SIMPLE, yet we tend to overlook our mindset, and opt for more complicated, external solutions. Listen in as James drops some truth bombs, including why risk is better than comfort, how to reprogram disempowering beliefs, and what we can do to jump start transformation.
