EP32: Friendly Fire

Friendly fire is one of the worst things that can happen, whether you’re in the military or not. If you’re not familiar with the concept, then let the guys help you out. Friendly fire is the unintended practice of self-sabotage. You just can’t stop getting in your own way. This whole thing happens because people become comfortable in that discomfort of not having a process. Don’t jump ship at any point in the process. Stay true to the Shin-Fufu so that you do not shoot yourself in the foot. Remember, success is on the other side of discomfort!
