16. The Relief of Seeing the Bigger Picture
Apr 7th, 2022 by richardgillett
Sometimes we listen to the news and feel really upset, overwhelmed perhaps with a helpless “oh no!” Maybe we’re angry or disappointed that the outcome we wished for did not happen. This podcast episode is about re-focusing on the bigger picture — how it helps our state of mind to widen our lenses and observe a broader perspective. How will the setback that I perceive today pan out in 20 years? Or 50 years? To achieve this perspective, this episode contains a remarkable new exercise called “Time Travel”. It’s a way of looking back from a future dream we aspire to — and it creates a greater chance of that dream manifesting. The episode is excerpted from Dr. Richard Gillett’s #1 bestselling book: It’s a Freakin’ Mess: How to Thrive in Divisive Times.
