We are all addicted to control. ~ Bert
I hope you enjoyed the first lesson and are eager to get into the second.
In this short video, Bert teaches:
- the First Law we need to know to be emotionally healthy;
- what “in control” looks like in our lives; and
- how our natural tendencies to want to control are an addiction.
Again we are looking for your opinion, so please don’t be shy (Bert doesn’t bite).
What did you think of Bert’s lesson? What has been your experience with the control addiction?
Please leave your feedback in the comments below.
Have you read the introduction and viewed Bert’s first lesson yet? You’ll want to catch up here.
