Have you heard of the "Streetlight Effect"

It's a parable, lesson, principle, joke that has been said in many forms over the years..

And it goes like this....

"A policeman sees a drunk man searching for something under a streetlight and asks what the drunk has lost. 

He says he lost his keys and they both look under the streetlight together.

After a few minutes the policeman asks if he is sure he lost them here, and the drunk replies, no, and that he lost them in the park. 

The policeman asks why he is searching here, and the drunk replies, 

'This is where the light is'."

There are MANY ways to interpret this...but this is how I see it....

We tend to look for things where it's the easiest place to look instead of where we KNOW we should be looking. 

In this episode, I go through ways we all do this for our health, our mindset and our goals...and how to learn to leave the comfort and ease of the light and step into the darkness...where we KNOW we will find the keys.
