The Former Lawyer Podcast

Jun 17, 2024

In today’s episode, Sarah offers important advice to listeners. While practicing law, she constantly thought about what she wanted to do outside the law. But then her brain would start telling her everything that would make it a bad fit and instantly become negative.

Lawyers are just trained to do this, and it’s important that you recognize that ahead of time.

Stop telling yourself that something isn’t going to work before you’ve actually spent any time looking into it. People start worrying about finances and skills they don’t think they have, and begin convincing themselves that it’s a bad idea.

Sarah calls this “Lawyering yourself.” You take an idea and then prematurely decide it’s impossible.
