When we feel threatened, as we do right now, our instinct is to focus on how we can survive. The primal brain leaps into action and it drives us to consume in vast amounts (which explains the panic buying, of course). We see what is going on around us and on the news and that amplifies the fear even further. There is another way, however. We have the opportunity to thrive.
In this episode, I share how we all love a good story. Right from early childhood, it is something we all latch on to and enjoy. That’s why we love films – because of the stories they tell and because we can identify with the characters. Have you ever dreamed of being Superman or Erin Brokovitch or Luke Skywalker?
What is interesting to me in all the people I’ve coached over the years is that their most compelling goals are not about what they can do for themselves but what they can do for other people. Even those who want to be fitter or to grow a business or find the perfect life-partner are doing it because of the impact they can then have on others around them.
