This book opened up a new world to me, being an HSP myself but not knowing it, this book has helped me so much with understanding myself and managing my life and emotions. I learned to not push myself so much and to be kind to myself. Here is a summary of the book. It really is a great read, if the info below resonates with you then I would suggest you get your copy of the book. Let's get to it then.
This is a condensed summary of the active questions from the book Triggers, by Marshall Goldsmith, a good read with some great tips and helps.
‘Active questions trigger trying’
A behavioural trigger is any stimulus that impacts our behaviour. In this book, we examine the environmental and psychological triggers that can derail us at work and in life. As Marshall Goldsmith points out, our reactions don’t occur in a vacuum. They are usually the result of unappreciated triggers in our environment—the people and situations that lure us into behaving in a manner diametrically opposed to the colleague, partner, parent, or friend we imagine ourselves to be.
I am going to go out on a limb and assume you’re here because personal growth is important to you. Or maybe I’m wrong and the picture for this article was really alluring and you somehow ended up here. Either way, I can almost guarantee that this subject is relevant to you.
How? You may ask. Well, the fact of the matter is, no matter how determined we are to better ourselves and how focused we are to develop as individuals, we all sometimes feel like we’ve landed in a personal-growth rut.
“Personal development is the belief that you are worth the effort, time and energy needed to develop yourself.” ―Denis Waitle
Stress seems to be one of the most commonly used words nowadays. Think about it, how many times have you heard someone say: “Oh, I’m stressed out, I’ve got so much on my plate!” or something similar? And apart from that, it’s not just adults with jobs and loaded responsibilities feeling it anymore, this term has transpired onto young people as well.
But, are you actually experiencing stress? How do you know that you are experiencing it? Here are a couple of tell-tale signs of stress and some practical ways how to deal with it.
Have you asked this question before? Well, there certainly is more to life, and you will start to find it once you start asking these questions. Personal growth or self-discovery is a wonderful journey and not a destination because we will never stop learning and improving there will always be more to know and learn.
This article is not to put more pressure on people to be more, do more, achieve more, more, more, more! But rather to set people on this self-discovery and growth path so that they can experience a fulfilled life.
There are many different ways and places where we learn life skills. Maybe it’s through a parent, teacher, coach or friend. Maybe it’s through participating in a sport, doing your part at home or even through learning to play a new instrument. But did you know that you can learn some of the most valuable life skills through scuba diving? This is because scuba diving takes you out of your comfort zone, creating an accelerated learning experience and is a great way to challenge yourself.
