Learning How to Sting

Episode 118 – Learning How to Sting

Chris and Rowan discuss the idea of learning how to sting. Stinging is when we go through a negative experience, and we let ourselves experience some of the negative emotions to motivate ourselves to ensure that it doesn’t happen again. We discuss how we can leverage a negative experience and turn it into a more positive outcome in the future.
