Key Takeaways
  • Life changing events can lead to reflecting on life goals.
  • In survival-mode, your mind filters out things that aren't helpful.
  • When was the last time you looked at the safety card in the back of the seat on a flight?
  • In a life-threatening situation, your mind can flux back and forth between peace and anxiety.
  • Move forward to the nearest exit in front of you, rather than moving backwards down the aisle.
  • If all your worldly possessions are sinking to the bottom of a river, do you really care?
  • Survivor's guilt can affect everyone involved. It's questioning whether or not you could have or should have done anything different.
  • Try to live in the now. Don't worry about the past or regrets.
  • Have goals and dreams. Focus on building stronger relationships. Get rid of negativity and surround yourself with more positive people.
