If you’ve ever wanted to feel better and more confident about your success, and helping others, then do we have the pride-building show for you!
Today I’ll be talking with Jessica Tracy, psychology professor and researcher at the University of British Columbia, and author of a groundbreaking book, Take Pride: Why the Deadliest Sin Holds the Secret to Human Success.
Today we’ll talk about what pride is, it’s double-edged sword, how to get more of the good stuff, and what we really want to leave behind.
That plus we’ll talk about Arnold Schwazhenhegger, Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, Albert Einstein, Lance Armstrong, Stuart Smalley, spilled soup and two year olds, what we can learn from chimpanzees, what’s the difference between a captain and a waterboy, And what in the world a mean tuna bagel has to do with anything.
