Famous Tom, Mike Ferry phrase. It's the little voice in your head that makes you doubt yourself. 

I have it in my goals & read it everyday 'watch the drunk money'.

Anything holding us back from thinking and acting 'out of the box'. I keep kicking the drunk monkey, but he is not responding. Any recommendations?

It is a KW term that means that you allow doubts and fears to stand in the way of your success.
