"Don't let the fear of losing be greater than the excitement of winning."
Yesterday I finished a book! :) Some of you knew which one from previous posts. But for those of you who are new, here it is! I highly recommend it!
One of the brilliant perspectives on this book is how we can relate the word fear with anxiety or, even in a more positive tone, excitement. This little trick can change our perspective, our posture and the outcome in a very radical way. Check out Lewis Pugh's achievements if you need inspiration! This is one of the many examples analysed in Adam Grant's book.
So next time you have a good challenge ahead, try naming your emotions differently and reframing your mindset completely. Let me know about the outcome!
