The Secret Is… You Are Like A Thermostat!
Ed Mylett is one of the top business leaders, peak performance experts, and keynote speakers in the world today. One of Ed’s favorite analogies is how your identity is like the thermostat on the wall of your life. Eva loved the analogy, and thought Ed had captured the perfect way to explain to our young Big Dreamers why it is so important to actively work on your identity -- the thoughts, ideas, concepts and beliefs you hold to be true about yourself.

There is an old saying that "A picture is worth a thousand words” and that’s exactly how we felt when we stumbled across a photo of a young and unknown Jeff Bezos working at an old wooden desk in a run-down office. But the headline of the photo is what really gave us the chills: “Don’t compare your Chapter 1 to someone else’s Chapter 20.” In this episode, Eva focuses on how important it is to work on being the best version of yourself.
