The biggest misconception in my industry is that we become what we think and therefore positive thinking determines our personal and professional success. Sadly this belief is why so many people never feel satisfied or reach their potential after working with a coach, counselor or therapist. Modern neuro-science shows that nearly every thought we ever have is generated by a feeling first.
