In the second episode of our 3-part series with master high performance trainer and New York Times bestselling author Brendon Burchard, we reveal 2 more of the 10 human drives you need to activate your extraordinary life.
10 Human Drives (Drives 4 – 5)
Drive 4: Caring.
We are driven as a human species to care and be cared for.
If we’re born and not cared for, we die.
We leave relationships and jobs when we don’t feel cared for.
Caring starts with caring for yourself.
Most of us don’t care for ourselves.
We aren’t sleeping or hydrating, and 70% of Americans are overweight.
If you can’t care for your own physical body, how can you possibly care for your emotional world?
Drive 5: Connection.
We are driven to connect with others.
Love is not a human drive.
Love is a quality of both caring and connection.If you don’t feel loved, there’s not enough caring and connection there. Amplified caring and connection becomes love.
If you don’t feel loved, there’s not enough caring and connection there. Amplified caring and connection becomes love.
To create greater connection in your life, practice positive projection.
