3 TFM - Let the Voice of Security be your guide

First read the General Instructions. Click here.
(and for Main Introduction, Click here)

Here’s a breakdown of goals and actions tailored to the 3rd Transformation: Let the Voice of Security be your guide.

This Transformation prioritizes strengthening the Voice of Security, cultivating optimism, and building resilience in the face of internal and external challenges.

Important Note: The distinction is that Transformation 3 is about boosting positivity and:

  • builds on: disregarding and even soaking in the negativity (Transformation 1, Ignore the Voice of Security), and entertaining it (Transformation 2, Use the Voice of Insecurity for amusement and inspiration)
  • but is not yet about, acting despite it (Transformation 4, Act despite the Voice of Insecurity ), or understanding it (Transformation 5, Befriend your Inner Voice).
