We couldn’t help it….we love Ice Cube.  But alas, today’s episode is about managing your emotions.  Once you understand how your mind works you will be able to hack it.  Others’ behaviors will likely make more sense as well.  So we dive deep into: 

  • What is self leadership and how is managing one’s emotions part of it?

  • How understanding how your mind works is the key to “hacking” your future

  • Using this understanding to improve your interactions with others
