Would You Rather Have More or Be More
This Sunday starts a new batch of Recover Yourself interviews beginning with Dr. Anna Lembke, author of Drug Dealer MD and the upcoming Dopemine Nation.
If you have been paying attention you may have noticed two very related things.
1. That we are being told more often than ever that we need some product, service, or course to be "normal"
2. That there is seemingly no end to the products, services, and course available to us to counteract this messaging of not being "normal" or "good enough"
In this quote from Seth Godin I really want to emphasize that what we "want" may have nothing to do with the physical world around us. Dr. Anna Lembke and I address this as well as explore how businesses coax your brain to release dopamine so that we are all embracing the shallows of transactional relationships. The truth is that what we truly want is within us and cannot be manufactured. The problem is that the addiction to our own dopamine response, when getting "more," can so easily get in the way of our being more.
I love you,
