How Rediscovering Your Authentic Identity Can Create Your “True North” [Limitless MD, Episode 74]


Whether you’re a physician, an entrepreneur or a CEO, finding your true north is one of the most important things you can do. It’s the engine for everything else. 

In this week’s podcast episode, I’m joined by Dr. Andy Garrett, superstar psychologist, who has pioneered a revolutionary approach to personal growth. We talk about the three most important things you can do as a success-driven individual to unlock true happiness, fulfillment, and satisfaction. 

Do you sometimes feel like you’re rowing upstream, against the current? Have you achieved all the markers of outward success, only to find yourself dissatisfied with your life? By tapping into your own unique set of life experiences and identifying your core values, you can go from uncertainty to radical clarity and make confident decisions. 

I don’t think there’s a more worthwhile investment you can make than to transform your mindset. Tune in to learn how to write a blueprint for your most authentic self.

“When you’re going in a consistent direction, you perform at a higher level. That’s where you really start to see your happiness, fulfillment, and satisfaction start to build and build and build.”

– Dr. Andy Garrett
