“Human beings are not wired for safety, we are wired for the familiar,” says Dr. Doug Brackmann, author of the bestseller, [Driven.](https://www.amazon.com/Driven-Understanding-Harnessing-Entrepreneurs-Athletes/dp/1619616939/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1511985122&sr=1-1&keywords=Doug+Brackmann) and Ari’s guest on this insightful and compelling podcast.
Dr. Brackmann theorizes that there’s a 10 percent minority among us whose brains, whose DNA, does not follow this axiom. Entrepreneurs, pro-athletes, inventors, adventurers, and Navy SEALs all have certain genes that can manifest resilient and highly focused people. But they also are impulsive and easily distracted. While these traits enabled our ancient ancestors to survive, if you have these traits today, it can create havoc in your life.
Ari and Doug talk through the strategies necessary to stop self-sabotage, end shame and doubt, find your wolf pack and use meditation to put yourself on the right path. And they talk about Buddha. ——- [Get the FREE Optimize, Automate, Outsource Blueprint here.](https://go.lessdoing.com/blueprint?utm_campaign=blueprint-ari&utm_medium=link&utm_source=podcast) — Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/lessdoing/message
