We all want to flourish, to be happy, and to live a good life. But the world is constantly throwing us challenges that test our abilities and our nerves. For some people, challenges cause them to grow, for others, challenges cause an endless loop of suffering and frustration.
What makes the difference? The people who grow find a way to step outside their current worldview and look at the world from a fresh perspective. This is where coaching can be so helpful. A skillful coach can help you see and question your deep assumptions about “how the world works.”
In this short video, How We Change and Grow, you can learn how our brains use past experience to form habits of mind that shape how we see and react to the world around us. These habits serve us well until life changes and we meet new situations that challenge our old patterns of thought. Understanding how this habit-forming process works can help us leverage the power of our brains, reduce our reactivity, and live a life of conscious action.
