Mine the Hunt.

 

Episode 24: Show Notes.

 

Like it or not, we are all hunters. The hunt is a challenge; it’s a problem to be solved, it’s an obstacle that needs to be avoided, or would rather be avoided. Why do challenges and obstacles often want to be avoided? Because facing them is just uncomfortable. Facing the hunt is not easy; but then again, nothing good every is. The thing is, facing something uncomfortable is actually the only way to feel comfortable again. You do not conquer a fear by ignoring it; you conquer a fear by facing it. That which impedes us, actually empowers us. In today’s episode we explore facing conflict and the story about Marcus Aurelius and his motivations behind writing his formula for success. What he wrote was a formula for conquering negativity, not just inspire of a setback, but because of it. It’s a formula for turning a setback into a success and for forging clarity out of chaos.
