This week's learning points are from the new On Purpose podcast with Jay Shetty. Here are this week's chosen learning points:
Romance: To bring back the spark to a relationship, try something new together in which you're both a beginner at. (Source)
Gratitude: Gratitude isn't just for the positive things in life. It should also be for the negative things because they often set the stage for later positive things. (Source)
Comparison: To stop comparing ourselves to others negatively, we need to define success for ourselves and identify our strengths. The first grants us control to not unconsciously accept definitions of success from others, and the second allows us to narrow our comparison pool to only what's relevant (our strengths). (Source)
Here are this week's recommended actions:
If you want to strengthen a relationship, try bullet 1. Ideas: a new sport, escape rooms, cooking, a new game, art, etc.
Reflect on a negative time from your life and how that set the stage for something more positive.
Define what success means to you physically, financially, mentally, emotionally, and/or spiritually. Then identify your strengths. Don't bother comparing to others on anything where you didn't define success and where it's not something you want to be a strength of yours.
