Reset Your Financial, Emotional & Risk Thermostat


A great way to visualize your threshold is to think of it as a thermostat. Whatever you set your goals or standards to, you’re going to maintain that level just like you would when you set the temperature of your home. In this episode, we explore what this concept looks like in terms of our finances, emotions, and risk tolerance. We also share how we’ve learned to reset our thermostat and push the limits of what we believe is possible.
