What makes people want to take risks like
Eat exotic foods,
Leave a stable job to start a business,
Or even take a trip to a faraway land?
In a word…feelings
Today I’d like to talk to you about how
You can use your emotions and feelings to
Intuitively create the good life without
Overthinking every single decision.
Ok so first, let me tell you there are
