What you will learn in this episode
Why we can't just push dark thoughts away and must acknowledge them How Marcus deals with coaching people who are resistant to change Why it's important to focus on all they ways in which you can succeed and not just why you can't How we can let obstacles and hardship limit our levels of happiness and fulfilment How adversity can cause us to shut down Marcus's advice for people feeling suicidal The adversity scale Quotes:
“There's a lot more that we can accomplish if we can give ourselves that benefit of being a little bit uncomfortable sometimes.”
“We can't just push these things away. We can't just act like they're not going on and intellectually put our fingers in our ears and say 'lalalalala' and hope it doesn't happen. We need to acknowledge and feel that pain and go to those depths, because the sooner we hit the bottom, the sooner we can build upon to get out of that pit of darkness and despair.”
“It's okay to be happy, it's okay to be sad, just don't let that define you.”
“In the end we are only as strong as the adversity we overcome.”
