Summary:

In this episode, Dan Miller discusses The Strangest Secret by Earl Nightingale and how we tend to  become what we think about. This season, Dan encourages us to sit down and do the work of self-introspection. How do our thoughts affect us? How do these thoughts lead to our actions? When we become more aware of the power and influence of our own thinking, we can become more conscientious of what we choose to believe in the first place.
