Ep12 Reality as a Construct

Today we're talking about reality as a construct. 

Now, the context that we're talking about that today has to do, of course, with relationships and interacting with other folks, but very quickly gets into conflict resolution.  And then taking a step into not just the understanding of, "Okay, I'm in control of this situation," or "I may not be interpreting the situation correctly."  It certainly takes a belief switch to get there for some of us.

But more importantly, and maybe more difficultly, is when you're in the moment and something's going horribly wrong in your perspective, and it's causing an emotional trigger, whether that's with somebody else, or just something happening, to be able to stop at that moment and ask yourself, "Why am I reacting so negatively in this situation?"  

One of the first indicators in the moment for when we should ask this is when your response seems like an overreaction.  As Gary points out, we may have things coming at us that we can't control, but we can control our response to them to construct our world. Our reality.

So I hope that gives you some context around what we're talking about here with reality as a construct.  Gary does an amazing job digging in and really giving us all some incredible, useful tools for moving forward in our life.
