Okay, maybe he isn't going to talk about feelings the way that you think...but more about how we should be dealing with our feelings.

If you're like most, you have at some point said the words "I don't feel like doing that today." In fact, nearly every one of us has used the way that we feel to justify doing or not doing what we know we need to. We've used the way that we feel to justify our decisions. Everyone, at one  point or another, has used our feelings as an excuse.

In this episode Derek breaks down his recent loss and how feelings played a critical role and how we can all make better choices regardless of how we are feeling.
