Unfortunately, conflict is one of those things that pops up in our lives, whether we like it or not.

 Say someone cuts in front of you in a long queue, or someone shows up an hour late for a meeting without an apology. The list of possible scenarios goes on and on, and they can be seemingly big or small issues.

In those moments, it’s natural to jump to a place of anger, among other unpleasant feelings. But anger doesn’t have to be our knee-jerk response. 

In this episode of Mentally Stronger, I’ll be exploring one simple method of reducing conflict in your life – switching your mindset from furious to curious. 

Curiosity offers a different perspective that can diffuse the entire situation and leave you feeling calmer and more in control.

Listen to learn:

  • Why conflicts arise
  • The mind’s journey from ‘hurt’ to ‘anger’
  • The benefits of switching from furious to curious
  • Two levels of curiosity
  • Why you shouldn’t make snap judgments about the actions of others
