About This Episode
In this episode of Pivot to Prosperity, Natalie Currie shares how she believes that instead of trying to “crush” fear, we need to embrace the role fear plays in our lives and understand the lessons it can teach us.
As an example, she talks us through what happened when the global recession tested her first business in clinical research and how that led her to becoming a coach who leads workshops about positive change.
Hang on folks. It’s a pretty fun ride.
In This Episode
- The difficulty of incorporating professional development into a busy workflow
- Angela Lee Duckworth and grit
- Millenials and how their switching jobs every 2-3 years requires embracing a flexible mindset
- Her belief that fear is not the enemy people often think it is
I also found this great 6 minute TED video where Angela Lee Duckworth talks about how grit–not IQ, not “how smart you are–is essential to success.
