    This podcast requires a special introduction because it is reflective of a side of myself that I have often alluded to, but largely kept private until now.

    For most people, it won't be economic hardship that harms them, but their own lack of emotional resilience that does them in.

    After the fall of the former Soviet Union, in the years that followed, more than half of all premature deaths that occurred were due to the effects of excessive alcohol consumption:

    Getting Our Story Straight is a Matter of Life & Death (Literally)

    The stories we tell ourselves have great influence over our destiny. These narratives shape our belief system and thus, in turn, the decisions we make.

    Find yourself making poor choices? That's likely due to a fallacy in one or more of the beliefs you hold.

    Psychology and social science has re-discovered this key learning: We can improve our odds of success in life by improving the stories we tell ourselves.
