The exact same situation often prompts very different reactions from different people. Bassam Tarazi outlines a range of personas and reactions in his Redefining Optimism Chart:
Though this is a spectrum and people can have mixed reactions, one scenario (the Realistic Optimist) experiences the greatest growth. They take a situation, don’t judge it as “good” or “bad,” and figure out how to use it to fuel their personal development. I like to think that I fit really well into this category (but only after years and years of work!)
On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, I talk with Bassam about the importance of accountability, and how important it is for completing big goals and dreams. We discuss anchor friends and how to have open communication about your (and their) needs. We talk about how to live a fulfilled life and be the person you want to be. And we challenge you not to attempt to change the world, but to change the moment.
