The 3 keys for unlocking your best self

There are three elements that, when mixed together, have the potential to create a spellbinding supernova of a person, that is able to take over their life and lead others at the same time: Humility, Curiosity, and Empathy.

Humility

The root of all growth, learning, and kindness, humility is the absence of entitlement. 
Humility annihilates ignorance and cultivates grace at the same time.  

Curiosity

The main driver for our quest for knowledge, novelty, experience, and connection, curiosity is a solid foundation for a life filled with stories, memories, and accomplishments.

Thorugh the eyes of curios person, the world is too large and our time on it too short to ever remain fully satisfied in any of our pursuits.

Empathy

Empathy breeds compassion, connection, and love. It brings people closer and makes others feel understood and less alone.

Empathetic people genuinely care, but they also respect and understand the boundaries and privacy of the people that surround them.

When stacked together...

... humility is the soul. Curiosity is the mind. Empathy is the heart.

Humility is how you value yourself. Curiosity is how you value your others. Empathy is how you value the bonds between yourself and others.

The most important trait

If a leader wants to know what is the most important trait, commitment is the most critical.

The meaning of bridging differences
The meaning of bridging differences

Bridging differences means finding ways to create positive dialogue and understanding across race, religion, political ideology, etc.

The recognition of common humanity

Bridge-building does not mean that you always agree with the other person or find common ground with them.

  • Bridging starts by recognizing that the other person or group has their own needs, tastes, values, goals, and worldview. Bridging happens because someone feels they have been heard and understood.
  • The key to bridging is that you don't dehumanize a member of another group. You don't see them as less worthy of health and happiness when you disagree with them.
Bridging differences is not about persuasion

Bridging differences is not to convert people to your ideological position.

Bridging is trying to understand someone else's perspective. It requires asking them questions and seeing the world through their eyes.

A Safe Way To Learn

Frightening fiction provides a safe way to learn how to deal with fear and anxiety.

Anything that is feared, can be tackled with knowledge. Fear during a global crisis generally arises due to lack of knowledge on how to deal with the situation. Helplessness and uncertainty give rise to the feelings of doom and gloom. The way to tackle this is to be completely informed about the situation, and be ‘apocalypse ready’.

"One does not need to be an egotistical maniac to be successful. 

This is one of the most misleading and destructive myths in all of Western culture."

Trouble starts with Ego

It starts where our notion of ourselves and the world grows so strong that it begins to distort the reality which surrounds us. 

The ego has then succeeded in completely separating us from the world.

What you write, you control
  • Recording your thoughts in a medium outside your own head helps your mind to become quieter: It stops returning to the same worn-out mental loops over and over. 
  • When you recount and reflect upon your thoughts and experiences you are, in effect, telling your own story. Journaling helps us clarify, edit, and find new meaning in these narratives.
Journaling and personal goals
Journaling about your goals helps you clarify what you want and encourages you to consider the why and how not just the what

It serves as a tool for identifying what you should prioritize on a daily basis, and what you should let go of. And it also gives you a record of the progress you’ve made toward your goals to keep you motivated.

Closed-Minded People

They are the individuals that only entertain their existing viewpoints, not being receptive to new ideas and previously unknown beliefs.

Having strong beliefs is not an indicator of a closed mind. One can have strong convictions and yet be empathetic towards others who have a different viewpoint.

Cognitive Dissonance

When a new piece of information that we learn from ourselves conflicts with our existing beliefs, and we are unable to deny the authenticity of the new idea, we experience Cognitive Dissonance.

If we are able to revise and update our outdated or incorrect belief patterns, we move towards learning and personal growth.

Reverse empathy

Rather than putting yourself in someone else’s shoes, try to remember a time when you wore the same shoe.

Try to recall a time when you struggled in a similar way and with a similar set of difficult emotions and moods. It's a powerful way to appreciate someone else struggle.

Get out of the “Fix-it Mode”

Most people struggling emotionally don’t want someone to fix their pain, they went to feel understood.

Use Reflective listening. It means that when someone tells you something, you simply reflect back to them what they said, either literally or with your own slight spin on it.
