Got triggers? 3 Ways to Learn (and Grow!)

My Week in pics… Visiting my cousins in beautiful Alicante, enjoying the festivities of the famous Ocean Volvo Race, running a 10k in honour of women’s cancer, taking in some glorious sailing sunsets, and finding some new fave cafes as I get more focused into biz re-vamping!

Got triggers? 3 Ways to Deal (and Grow!)

Happy Friday!

And greetings from Plaza de la Virgen, an old little square in the heart of old town, Valencia, that dates back to the Roman Times. With the Cathedral of Santa Maria behind me, the fountain of Neptune (surrounded by eight naked women – fun fact!) to my right, it’s a great spot for eating, drinking, and people watching.

Now I love people watching, but yesterday I found myself people watching in a whole new way. And while the experience normally leaves me feeling inspired, this one left me feeling icky.

In a nutshell, I got triggered.

Watch this week’s video to hear my story and learn 3 ways to learn (and grow!) from your triggers.

So next time you feel as though you’re being triggered, or one of your buttons is being pushed, remember these 3 tips:

  1. Acknowledge your buttons.
  2. Play the role of world’s greatest observer 
  3. Look for the lessons to be learned… 
Please share this video with someone in your life you think could benefit, and let’s keep the conversation going! I want to hear from you in the comments below!

And until next time, I’m Carol Schulte, and keep on dreaming big, playing big, and living BIG. 

Have a FAB week!
