Superchargers - Challenge Curation #12

Here are three little personal challenges to try in our daily lives as suggested by expert guests on the Superchargers podcast hosted by Daniel Thomas. Watch the full conversations below each challenge.

Comedian - Leanne Linsky

“This is a really fun one. I challenge the listeners to go out today and try to fail at something. Go, I'm gonna go do this and I'm gonna totally fail and see what happens. And I had to do this once. I had a coach challenge us to go out today and do something that you think you're gonna fail at and be okay, just know you're gonna fail and go out and do that. And I think there's so much freedom in going out and doing something that you know, you're not attached to the outcome. It's like, oh, the odds of this coming true, but putting yourself out there is so freeing.”

Former Hostage Negotiator - Terry Tucker

“I try to do this every day of my life. And it goes back to the four truths that we were talking about a minute ago. How do you embrace pain? How do you embrace the difficulty that we all experience in life? I mean, it could be as simple as, you break up with your boyfriend or your girlfriend, or the plane you're leaving on to go on vacation gets canceled or you don't get the promotion at work that you believe you deserve. Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional. So how do you deal with that pain? And here's the challenge I would offer to everybody. And I try to do this every single day of my life. Do one thing every day that scares you, that makes you nervous, that makes you uncomfortable, that's potentially embarrassing.

It doesn't have to be a big thing. But if you do those small things every day, when the big disasters in life hit us and they hit all of us, we lose somebody who's close to us, we get let go from our job, we find out we have a chronic or a terminal illness, you'll be so much more resilient to handle that pain when it presents itself. So just do one thing every day that you don't want to do that makes you scared, nervous or uncomfortable.”

Leadership Coach - Kathy Hadizadeh

“Choose six values that are present in your life right now, right this moment. Because the thing is, values are dynamic. What was a value system for you when you were 20 and now are not exactly the same. So why don't we use that as a challenge? Focus on that, you know, it's a nice value, but how is it executable? Like how is that actually practically being incorporated into the way you operate and live?”
