EPISODE 304: Your Weakness is Your Superpower

When we think about toxins in our food and environment, most people assume the risk is “cancer,” and that’s true; but the more immediate risk is often hormonal imbalance. Common additives in foods and skin care products can disrupt your natural endocrine balance and lead to everything from thyroid problems and infertility to weight gain and depression. This is a huge and growing problem, and the solution includes diet and lifestyle choices that aren’t always obvious.

What if your weaknesses were your greatest strength? What if your weirdness made you wonderful? Our guest on this week’s Yoga Talk Show reveals how this works.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Why your weaknesses might be your superpower
  • Why it’s foolish to focus on your weaknesses, and why you should instead focus on your strengths
  • Why “perfect” and “balanced” don’t exist so we should not go looking for them
  • Why almost any personality type can find a way to excel at something
