Part 4 of the Wayfinding Series.
In this part, we discuss the most important concept in all of self-help, which is that our brains and bodies expect a much different world than the one in which they find themselves. This mismatch is the source of much confusion and unhappiness. Understanding what our bodies expect to find, and what they encounter instead, is the first step in resolving this inner turmoil.
I also introduce the first sailboat I ever owned, and begin the tale of its maiden voyage from Baltimore to Charleston, South Carolina, one of the most harrowing sailing trips of my life.
