The Education, Required to Thrive, Which No School Provides

We always celebrate the success of those who came back in the game, yet we seem to lack acknowledgement for the challenges and perseverance of those stayed and finished it.

In this episode of Run Toward The Roar, John discusses about character, how it produces hope, and what makes it different from being hopeful. We also learn about cognitive reframing to help you look at a situation, and how we should focus on the positive and filter out the negative.

What to expect in this episode:

02:28 – Those who came back in the game and those who are resilient.

04:14 – What can you do to finish the game well?

08:13 – Character is elusive to those who despise suffering.

11:11 – Character produces hope.

13:01 – On DEI taking root on the workplace.

16:31 – Remaining a victim is our decision.

18:06 – Cognitive reframing to help you look at the situation.

25:16 – When we reframe our beliefs, we stop focusing on what went wrong.

27:02 – When you blame all bad things on life

28:36 – Grief resolution, not grief recovery

32:57 – Positive focus, negative filtering.

37:10 – Our beliefs determine who and what we support.
