Defining your purpose can be a different process for everyone. In this episode, the guest talks about how asking questions like, "What matters to you?" or "How do you want to be remebered?" can help a teen find a direction in their life. Having a purpose creates a sense of direction for everyone because, for some, that is the only thing why they keep going.
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.
