⚠️  And guess what else... IT LIES. 🤯
> Every time you have those nagging negative thoughts about the worst case scenario happening? Lizard brain.
> When you're worrying if people like you when you're socializing? Lizard again. 
> When you think you're going to die because your to do list seems so long... You guessed it... Lizard.
> When you feel panicky and aren't even sure why... Probably lizard, the expert of subconscious lurking & instilling fear.
...I could go one all day about this one. 
That said, knowing this ️ could help you grow exponentially as a person. It can help change your mindset, quell anxiety & more.
See... 🦎🧠  isn't the smartest. It can't really distinguish between running from a mountain lion and feeling sad, or getting in a fight with your partner vs having a grizzly bear cross your path. 
Another sneaky thing about LB, is that it trips us up socially. Back in the day, we depended on our communities to survive. If we were ostracized, it would mean death... So we needed to be in good standing with our people, we needed then to like us. 
What's this mean? LB thinks not fitting in socially = death.
But guess what?!
 ⚡THIS GIVES YOU THE POWER!⚡
The power to examine your thoughts knowing that lizard brain is NOT up to speed with modern day life and creeping around in all of them!
The power to think about your thoughts and fears through a new lens & decipher if you REALLY need to dwell on them or take them seriously.
The power to STOP yourself dead in your tracks when you feel yourself going down a thought spiral and ask... Is this a probable outcome I truly need to be concerned with? Is this something I should spend 3 hours thinking about? 
⚡⚡ Take back your power. ⚡⚡
