The Chimp Paradox

Interview with Stuart McGuire

Do you sometimes feel that you disrupt your own happiness and success?
Are you overworked to make sense of yourself?
Do your emotions often control you?

Stuart and I got a recommendation to read a book entitled “The Chimp Paradox: The Acclaimed Mind Management”. This book is an incredibly powerful mind management model that can help you become a happy, confident, healthier, and more successful person.

Join us in this episode while we discuss these interesting points:

  • Author Prof Steve Peters
    • Psychiatrist working on performance and function of brains
    • Helps business but also sports like FC Liverpool
  • And then there is the computer and the goblins within it, how to learn about finding these goblins (false beliefs). 
  • Manage you inner chimp and how the question “Do you want to behave/feel this way?” helps you.
  • Keep focusing on solutions “What’s in your boat?”
