Your brain wants to be safe and certain

Why are we afraid to speak up about a difficult topic or to give feedback? Why do people react so dramatically when they are excluded from a group? Why do some people crave attention and others fight to the bitter end for justice?

It’s all driven by core brain functions that are trying to help us survive.

By design, the brain nudges you to take advantage of situations that will help you thrive and it makes sure you avoid dangerous situations so that you don’t die. Its assessments of what is useful for survival are pre-programmed in and are based on life on the savannah; sometimes it’s completely misguided in this 21st century world.

In this mini-course, you will learn about the Be SAFE & Certain model which helps explain why we react and what we react to.
