Jared Siegel talks about the key differences between things that terrify us and things that are real hazards in this solo episode of Success That Lasts.

Here are a few highlights:

  • We are bad at differentiating between things that scare us and things that present real danger to our lives because we’re more relaxed around things we are acquainted with, Jared says. The average person is more likely to die in a car accident than in a plane crash, yet flying garners more fear than zipping down the highway at 75 mph.
  • Companies that cannot navigate changes like technology, globalization, and the current pandemic risk becoming defunct.
  • Change is scary because, by nature, it’s unfamiliar, but sometimes a lack of change is actually dangerous.
  • Se hace camino al andar,” Jared quotes. It translates to “the way is made by walking;” you create the pathway itself by stepping into the unknown and embracing change.
  • Our emotions may impede logical decision making processes, but using the four Rs can help us overcome that. The four Rs are: recognize, reflect, reframe, and respond.
