The Life In Limbo podcast is about building a life you love on the foundation of what’s most important to you. Each week I chat with an interesting person or share my own ideas in order to explore about how we can stay connected to our personal values, measure what matters most to us, listen to our own voices, and create a life we enjoy.

This week on the show I’m talking about my recent interrogation of some of my own positive illusions! In the episode I define the concept of positive illusions and make the case for why sometimes we need to break our own positive illusions (both the ones about ourselves and about the world) in order to become more of the people we want to be.
