Jonathan is a mentalist, speaker, consultant, and author of [think] Like A Mind Reader. His personal philosophy is that the better we understand psychology and why people do what they do, the more effective we can be at making the world a better place.
Quotes to remember: 
“The life you’re living right now is the consequence of the years you’ve spent making decisions.”
“Most people aren’t aware of how they’re doubting themselves and... of the narratives they’re using to disempower their ability to achieve and create.”
“Your mind is the only thing that causes things in the universe.”
