Dr. Chris Friesen, (Ph.D.) is a psychologist who, like me (and probably you too) has always been fascinated by what makes people successful. He is a licensed clinical, forensic, and neuro psychologist but now primarily helps professional, national, Olympic, and up-and-coming elite athletes, as well as other high achieving professionals, entrepreneurs, executives, academics, and creatives. He helps them *all* achieve their personal and professional potential. Currently he’s the director of Friesen Sport & Performance Psychology, a contributor for Success.com, and also author of *ACHIEVE: Find Out Who You Are, What You Really Want, And How To Make It Happen.*
However…. In today’s episode we kick things off by talking about the darker side of success, what failure teaches us, and how to be brave when we’re having those “bathroom floor moments.”
I’m really looking forward to hearing all about his personal and professional point of view on *all* of this and more. Dr. Friesen, Thank you for joining us today!
So let’s jump right on into the Bare Naked Bravery. Okay, I’m just curious what your answer might be to this question… What do your “bathroom floor moments” look like?
