Have you ever known something was bad for you, but felt compelled to go for it anyway? Maybe you had an overpowering craving for a food, and you knew it wouldn’t make you feel very good, but you just couldn’t resist the temptation. If you’ve been there – and so many of us have, at some point in our lives – please don’t beat yourself up. You simply experienced the power of a symbolic substitute, a psychological process that’s part of our complex and beautiful human nature. In this new video from IPEtv, I explain where these powerful urges come from, and how you can redirect their energy toward fulfilling your most cherished dreams.
