You have an evil twin…
If someone (a doctor, I would hope) scanned your brain and discovered that you had an embryonic twin, with hair and teeth in your brain, you’d be a bit freaked out, wouldn’t you?
I definitely would.
An American lady, Yamini Karanam recently went through that exact experience, and she actually handled it really well.

Now, I’m no doctor, but I have long thought that all of us have an evil twin inside of our brains.
They’re the voice that wakes us up at 2:17am, and doesn’t let us get back to sleep until 9 minutes before our alarm is due to go off. They’re the voice that, when we get excited about a new idea or project, tells us not to be stupid – that we’ll mess it up and it won’t work out.
They’re the voice that’s responsible for cluttering our brains with head trash, building up obstacles and objections to why we can’t do the things that we really want to (often the most scary, challenging things) do.
Thankfully, for most of us, we don’t need surgery to get rid of our evil twin; we just need to ignore it, it’ll get bored and go away eventually. It feeds off attention.
I know, it’s easier said than done – trust me, there are days when I take its words of discouragement and negativity as gospel. However, it’s on the days that I tune it out, and remain focused on getting my business to the super success that I want for myself and for my family that I really feel like I’m making progress – those are the days when good stuff happens.
I hope some good stuff happens for you over the next week – that’ll shut that twin right up.
