The Secret to Mastering Free Will

adapt and thrive awareness belief evolve your consciousness free will fundamental shift happiness identity shifting impulse control instant gratification judgement meaning making mental mastery mindfulness personal development self the rob scott show wisdom Jan 20, 2021


Our "story of self" is a concept that’s created within the construct of time. It can be useful, but when we get lost in it, the "self" starts to make us feel like there’s no freedom of choice or free will.

Do you feel like you desire change, but your behavior is out of your control? If you do, you’ll definitely want to hear this episode of the Rob Scott Show.

It will help you gain more agency over free will. More of our behavior than we realize is reflexive. There’s only one possible place that free will can exist (if it exists at all).

We can become more conscious and more aware of our impulses. We can use and choose thoughts that inspire different behaviors in the "now."
