The gift and power of emotional courage
A beautiful talk by a South African speaker. Susan speaks about the need for greater levels of emotional agility for true resilience and thriving. How there is no such thing as a negative or bad emotion – how we are caught up in ‘a tyranny of positivity’ which leaves us with rigid responses. ‘Do you have dead people’s goals?’ she asks. She encourages us to embrace all our emotions. Tough emotions are part of our contract with life. Discomfort is the price of admission to a meaningful life. She also stresses that our emotions are data – not directives. We own our emotions they don’t own us. I found this talk deeply insightful – I hope you’ll enjoy it too.
