What stories are we telling ourselves and the people we love? Are they serving us or hurting us? And them?
In today’s show, the power of story is made alarmingly clear—I mean powerful at the neurochemical level, and I mean alarmingly in that many of us are mostly passive in allowing old, unchecked, and disempowering stories about ourselves drive us—and not anywhere we want to go.
But fear not, as Rich shares with us his four-step story-evolution process to help us access our brain’s filter database and take an active role in creating new filters to rewrite the stories that are holding us back to ones that promote our happiness and values, as well as creating systems that defend our good habits.
This interview was loaded, as we are the beneficiaries of Rich’s “personal Ph.D” in happiness he earned over an intense two-year period, as he beckons to us from atop the shoulders of giants in neuroscience, positive psychology, and behavioral psychology with clarifying and directly actionable advice that I really think is an extra level of what I’ve been looking for in terms of, “Now, what do I do?”
