The key take away from this episode is: talk to yourself lile a friend. If I am going to ask you, if you're friend fails in something, do you say bad things to them? No. The speaker suggests that when we experience bad times, we should talk to ourselves like a friend because we will never talk badly to a friend who is having a tough time.
Only one sentence to summarize this episode: when you are experiencing pain, you are growing. The host compares this when we workout. We feel pain in our muscles after we workout because the muscle fibers break and eventually grow. Same as when we experience pain in life. We grow and learn the most when we experience hardships.
There is a stigma that correcting or providing feedback to a leader can deteriorate our relationship with them. It is otherwise. As leaders we should encourage our colleagues to share their feedback to your work because you might have blindspots that we don't see. In this way, we can improve our work and lift the group up. Remember that you don't need to be the best, to be a leader.
The hosts in this episode highlight that sometimes being toxic are also the things we don't do. When talking to a friend/boyfriend, we are encourage to ask them what they want so that you can meet halfway. Communication is key to any relationship. As an individual, we must also assess the things we do wrong, and ways on hoe to change/improve them.
