#007 - Your Mindset and You - Part 2 - Stories - with Bruce Watkins

Season 1 | Episode 7
15m | Apr 9, 2021

In this "Part 2” of a multi-episode “mini-series” of podcast shows, program host Bruce Watkins continues his introduction of Mindsets with two illustrative stories about how a Mindset can help us to create paradigms, and how we may eventually realize that these paradigms can be “terribly wrong.”  

Future episodes of the Our Cancer Journey Podcast Mindset Series will explore how our Mindset engages associations and expectations to dramatically shape our future beliefs, and influence our happiness and future health outcomes. Why are we exploring this topic? We are diving into the concept of Mindsets because understanding this space is critical for those facing a Cancer diagnosis and for those supporting them.

Be sure to Listen to episode #006 - Part 1 of the “Your Mindset and You” mini-podcast series!
