Week 4: Survival Needs
What’s going on below the surface?
You have 4 jets pushing you to your default future:
- Look Good
- Feel Good
- Be Right
- Be in Control.
The four jets reveal themselves in defensiveness.
If you want to recognise opportunities for growth, look for the moments where you feel yourself getting defensive.
To grow you need to be willing to
- Look Stupid
- Feel Uncomfortable
- Be Wrong
- Be Out of Control
Be aware that when the Four Jets are controlling you, it doesn't stop you from looking stupid, being uncomfortable, being wrong or out of control. It means that you are not embracing opportunities for growth. The video here is an example of someone who is committed to
- Being Right
- Being in Control
And probably a mix of the other 2 jets as well!
Spend 24 hours this week keeping a tally of how often the 4 jets come up in your life. Choose one situation to write down what you notice about yourself in your in that moment. How could you make the difference by choosing to get out of the "jetstream".
It's strongly recommended that you take action on your RISK in the first 24 hours after your SPARK session!
