44 Author Battenberg on Resolve and Arm Wrestling Fear

June 30, 2020

The old normal is mutating into a new normal, where we are challenged to find our ground of being, taking the blinders off of old, habitual ways of thinking to hone our resolve on what we can no longer tolerate or live with. Getting clear about what we stand for can effect huge changes in both our behavior and in external events. Battenberg shares experiences and reads an excerpt from her book on Arm-Wrestling With Fear.

Attempting to solve our problems, both personal and global, may require us to  synthesize things we hadn't seen as connected before. Re-looking at our values can steer purposeful actions instead of reactive ones. The time is right to rethink habitual ways of thinking and acting.

Elisha Christopher delves into the thinking necessary to synthesize a divided world when Mother Nature has “sent us to our room” to reconsider our relationships with each other and the planet. With original thinking, he draws from a very diverse field of knowledge and values to suggest how we can solve problems at a level above where we created them. He is the fourth in my series with Millennials. He is on youtube: elishachristopher, and Facebook: Elisha Christopher Hayden.
