YAPClassic: Brad Stulberg on Emotional Intelligence for Entrepreneurs, How to Stay Grounded and Present
When Brad Stulberg was 31 years old, he suddenly developed Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. His mind was plagued with thoughts of self-harm and depression. He quickly sought out therapy, and in the process of getting help, he learned about what it means to be grounded and how mindfulness can help us navigate the suffering of everyday life. Since then, Brad has established himself as a top expert in sustainable excellence, mental health, and authentic success.
