    Is Your Ego Blocking You From Winning Deals? - E186

    Is Your Ego Blocking You From Winning Deals? - E186

    This week, I wanted to share something a little different with you – a raw and real experience that I recently went through during my climb to the top of Jungfrau, Switzerland.

    In this special podcast episode, I'm taking you behind the scenes and showing you the challenging moments during the climb.

    And I very often show the highlights of life and the peaks that I have reached.

    However, it’s rare that I show the hard times.

    I experienced severe altitude sickness, and I decided to capture it live, right in the midst of the struggle.

    Why? Because we're all human, and it's crucial to embrace both the highs and the lows that shape our journey.

    Life isn't always about reaching the peaks; sometimes, it's about navigating the valleys.

    I won't give away too much, but I think you’ll find it entertaining.

    So, grab your favorite beverage, find a comfortable spot, and join me on this unique journey where things didn't exactly go according to plan.

    Because sometimes, the unplanned moments teach us the most about ourselves.

    Listen to the podcast episode now.

    Wishing you resilience and strength in your own adventures!
