60: How knowing ‘Too Much’ can hold you back

Subscribe to the Podcast!


Have you ever gone into a situation completely ignorant or unaware and you have a completely different experience with it because you didn’t know something?

A little naivete goes a long way

Is ignorance Bliss?

I’m going to share a little story with you, about an experience I had where I ended up in at the wrong event without realizing. And because of my naivety, I was open, communicating confidently and made some incredible connections.

I was comporting myself with absolute conviction – walking, talking and interacting in a genuine manner.

But it all came to a crashing halt when I realized I wasn’t where I was meant to be… that I didn’t belong, and uncomfortable feelings of embarrassment quickly washed over me.

Well then I had a further realization that I’ve got a lot of mindset issues going on here – a lot of limiting self-beliefs – otherwise, I wouldn’t have had such a strong emotional reaction.

In this episode, we’re talking all about how ignorance really can be bliss!

Despite the fact that I ended up walking away feeling deeply embarrassed, I learned so much about the power of ignorance – and how it can be used as a confidence booster both outwardly and inward, especially when it comes to communicating with one another.

Sometimes knowledge isn’t everything!
